The success of Man in Dawah

By : Abu Waleed UK

 
The Success of the Man in Dawah for the sake of Allāh, calling for the Haq and confronting all false ideological ideas today requires a likeminded spouse in his corner for him to be successful, what advise can we give to such sisters, remember this is not for anyone, not for the wives of bank managers etc, but a unique individual and for them is a unique partner.

For them is the following examples amongst many which We could of made;

Make Khadeejah (ra) your example and leading role model who was a strong right hand for her husband and a firm gentle touch to our Messenger which enabled him to carry his message to mankind. Khadeejah supported him, believed in him, covered him and said to him her famous statement: ‘By Allaah! Allaah will never let you down because you are the one who maintains the blood relationship, carry heavy responsibilities, help the needy, support the weak, command the good and forbid the evil and challenge all the corruption in society.’

Wake up in the night time and throw the arrows of the dark night at sehri time by supplicating to your Lord and ask him to protect your husband and all the daa’ies and to make them firm, victorious, have ‘izzah and support.

Keep yourself busy by nurturing the children of your husband, provide the best knowledge and good deeds that makes them full of taqwaa and Eemaan and plant in them that the conviction their father stands for is the truth, and encourage them to do the same thing as their father.

Dear Muslim sisters, if your husband is a daa’ie be proud that your husband carries the truth and be confident that the banners of Haq he carries will never fall down even if he does.

Fabricated Hadeeth Series

Fabricated Hadeeth Warning

This hadeeth has been classed as maudoo (FABRICATED).

Like the Farewell Sermon, some have attributed false sources to this, saying it is found in Bukhaaree (No. 6:19) and Tirmidhee (No. 14:79).

It is found in neither, but can be found in Silsilatul-Ahaadeeth ad-Da’eefah wa al-Mawdoo’a (No. 3274) of Imaam al-Albaanee, where he said:

“Verily when a man looks at his wife and she looks at him, Allaah will look at them both with glance of Mercy, when he takes her hand their sins will be wiped away through their fingers”

(This is) fabricated, reported by ar-Raafi’ee in his Taarikh (2/47) commenting on Maysara bin ‘Alee in his Mashaykha with its chain of narration from al-Hussain bin Mu’aadh al-Khurasaanee who narrated from Ismaa’eel bin Yahya at-Taymee from Mis’ar bin Kidaam from al-‘Awfee from Abee Sa’eed al-Khudree who said: The Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam): and then he mentioned the hadeeth.

I [al-Albaanee] say (regarding this hadeeth):

“This is fabricated, damaged by this at-Taymee; he is known to fabricate ahadeeth and he has false and troublesome narrations which some of it were already mentioned, and Hussain bin Mu’aadh is almost like him. Al-Khateeb said (regarding him): ‘He is not trustworthy and his hadeeth is fabricated.’”

Be warned, lying upon the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) will result to entering the Hell-Fire (if Allaah wills)!

The Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Whoever (intentionally) ascribes to me what I have not said then (surely) let him occupy his seat in Hell-fire.”

Didn't You see How your Lord Dealt with.. | illustrated

Today we are talking about Surah Al Fiil (the elephant). Well, I agree with people who suggested not to having 'favorite' surahs. Yes, there should not be favorite surah. Every surah or ayat in the Al Qur'an must be our favorite. Why should we read the word "naar", "jannah", "azaab" to feel touched? We need to reflect in every surah and ayah. What we need is not only read but also reflect. Any opinion?


Please wait for the next part ^_^

What Drives People to Embrace Islam??


He is a poor Muslim fruit seller and she is an old Buddhist grandma

Pictures such as this are rarely seen today. Those who gain from division in Sri Lanka often ignore these. We ask every Sri Lankan to love and respect each others differences, build a Sri Lankan identity and shows the world that how we should no longer fall for divisional tactics, used by those who gain from keeping us divided.

Habituated to the local conditions in various ways the Muslims contributed extensively with their talents, wealth, and assisted to the development and progress of the country in a peaceful and comfortable manner, integrating with the society & blending with the local environment.

Inspired by the Islamic teaching of Islam and Prophet Muhammad PBUH to respect the elders, today this Gentleman has showed that in his action. It was due to nurturing such traditions that the Sinhala locals developed an immense trust in Muslim moors.

This gentleman conveys two Great message to the Entire muslim Ummah.

1. The real beauty that is evident to anyone is inner beauty. If the inside is beautiful, it beautifies what is outside. How many of us have met people whose inner light shines through? The Prophet Muhammad SAW describes a “seemingly disheveled, dusty, negligible person, but if he would swear to God, He would respond to him,” (Tirmidhi). These are the people of true beauty to Allah (swt) because of the beauty in their hearts. They are a people who love to spend time with Allah, and if they are with people, they are in their service. let us beautify ourselves inwardly by adorning ourselves with God- consciousness and good manners.

2. Imam Ahmad, Al-Hakim and Al-Tabarani reported that ‘Ubada bin Al-Samit stated that the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said: ‘Whoever does not respect our elders is not one of us.’ Another version reported: ‘Whoever does not respect our elders, is not compassionate to our youth, and does not give our scholars due honour, he is not one of us.’

An interesting story in this regard happened among three Muslim scholars. TheY were Ahmad bin Omar bin Suriah, Mohammad bin Dawood Al-Zaheri , and Linguist Naftawih. They were walking along together when they came to a very narrow passageway, and each wanted the other to go ahead. Ibn Suraih said, ‘A narrow street brings ill manners.’ Ibn Dawood responded, ‘Though it points out status.’ Naftawih said, ‘When friendship prevails, formalities disappear.’ The story does not tell who went ahead of the others, but it is likely that it was Ahmad bin Suriah since he was a judge and a prominent Imam at the time and ranked above his two companions. He may have said ‘A narrow street rings ill manners’ apologizing out of politeness for going ahead.

He could not have said it if any of the two moved ahead since that would have been impolite. There is a possibility that Naftawih went ahead since his words could be an apology for doing that since he is the least ranked. It is just wonderful to see such perfect behaviour and nice apologies.

Do not walk in front of elders unless you have to show the way.

Predator Drones: Obama's weapon of choice

drone strike

The use of predator drones under the Obama Administration in Muslim lands, especially, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Yemen and Somalia has increased dramatically. According to Slate.com, Obama used drone strike 5 times as much as President George Bush numbering over 300 bombings under his administration. In some case, the 24/7 presence of drones flying over communities has severely increased the level of psychological disorders, traumas and anxiety for those living in targeted regions. The fear of these drones stem from the terror they inflict on mostly women and children without prior warning. A 2012 report entitled, “Living under Drones,” (published jointly by the NYU School of Law and Stanford School of Law) described the “deaths, injuries and trauma” of people living in areas that are targeted by drones. It also discusses the use of "double tap" strikes, where a drone strike is followed by a secondary attack, which kills those that attempt to rescue those that fall victim to these deadly attacks.

A drone is an expression of human will, the expression of a borderless world where life and death sits in the hands of a decision making hierarchy that will never be touched by a drop of blood, never see a parent’s tear, never understand what war is. - Gordon Duff

#Palestine child prisoner


one of the two detained children by IOF aged between 9-11 taken away - 'Clashes in Hebron continued on Friday 15th March, following the death of 25 year old Mahmoud Adel Tete in the nearby Al Fawar refugee camp three days previously. At around 3pm, one adult male and two boys were detained by soldiers in the Palestinian controlled H1 area, and were forced into the small terminal comprising Checkpoint 56.

The boys are aged around 9 and 11. They were held inside the sealed cabin with several soldiers for half an hour, with observers being denied access, despite repeated attempts made to ensure that the detainees were not being mistreated. All three had their hands zip-tied and the adult was blindfolded.

One of the detained children being taken to the army jeep.

One of the detained children being taken to the army jeep.

The detainees were eventually removed from the checkpoint into a waiting army jeep. Soldiers stated that they would be taken to the police station. This brings the total number of Hebron citizens arrested in the last three days to eleven, none of whom have yet been released.

During the demonstration today, Israeli forces shot large amounts of teargas and rubber bullets at crowds of Palestinians protesting at the killing of Mahmoud Adel Tete, making repeated invasions into Palestinian controlled H1 area – which under the Oslo accords the Israeli army are not permitted to enter. They also invaded homes to use for further attacks on the resisting Palestinians. Several were wounded, including an international activist shot with a plastic coated steel bullet.'

Rezeki Pasti Ada

Alright guys. Firstly, I greet you with islamic greetings. Assalaamu'alaykum Wa Rahmatullahi Ta'ala Wa Barakatuhu.
gambar keimanan
gambar : http://thebeautyofpureislam.blogspot.com


Sori ya gan, ane pake basa inggris dikit kagak nape-nape ya. Oke, judul yang ane pake kali ini mungkin rada ambigu. Rezeki pasti ada, kalimat ini bisa jadi sebab timbulnya dua reaksi. Pertama, bikin orang jadi males. Kedua, bikin orang jadi rajin. Buat sebagian orang, kalimat "rezeki pasti ada" bakalan bikin orang itu males, soalnye walaupun dia diem leha-leha doang dia mikirnya rezeki pasti ada. Buat sebagian lagi kalimat ini bisa bikin rajin. Orang yang suka kerja keras walopun dia kagak pernah dapet duit banyak malah tenaganye ampe abis, die tetep berusaha ahahaha.

Tapi postingan kali ini bukan tentang itu. Ini tentang sebuah kisah yang datangnya dari Aisyah ra. Kisah tentang betapa pentingnya kekuatan iman. Bahkan besarnya iman itu menunjukkan apakah orang itu benar-benar mukmin apa bukan. Saya pasangkan di sini videonya. Sebuah video yang mengilustrasikan tentang betapa besarnya keyakinan yang dimiliki oleh Aisyah ra kepada Allah swt. Saya akan mencoba menjelaskan kisahnya dengan bahasa sehari hari.

Jadi dulu tuh ada seorang pengemis datang ke rumah Aisyah ra. Terus Aisyah ra. nyuruh budaknya, namanya Barira ra. buat ngebukain pintu. Pengemis itu bilang "wahai keluarga rasulullah, beri saya sesuatu". Barira ngejawab "kami nggak punya apa-apa". Nah jawaban itu kedengeran ama Aisyah ra. trus nanya ke Barira "ada siapa itu?". "ini pengemis" kata Barira. "Kita cuma punya segenggam jelai (kaya beras gitu), itu juga buat buka puasa kamu nanti, sekarang udah ashar" lanjutnya. Aisyah ra. bilang "kasihin aja, Allah akan menyediakan (makanan untuk buka puasa)". Dibilang gitu terus Barira ngasiin jelai itu ke pengemis.

Waktu terus berjalan sampe tiba waktu magrib, makanan udah ga ada. Aisyah ra. waktu itu cuma buka puasa dengan minum aer aja, terus dia sholat maghrib. Barira mah waktu itu cuma duduk aja di sana, malah ngomong gini "Allah akan menyediakan" dengan nada rada ngejek. Pas dia bilang gitu, tiba-tiba ada yang ngetok pintu. Pas dibuka ada orang di luar, orang itu ngasih satu ekor kambing buat hadiah. Nah, pas Aisyah ra udah beres shalat, dia nanyain ke Barira, "siapa itu?". Barira ngejawab "ini orang yang tinggal di sekitar sini, tapi dulu mah dia nggak pernah ngasih apa-apa ke kita. Tapi hari ini dia ngebeliin kita satu ekor kambing". Aisyah ra ngejawab "Barira, bukankah satu ekor kambing lebih baik daripada gandum (yang tadi dikasiin)?" kemudian ia mengatakan sesuatu yang sangat 'makjleb' yaitu tentang iman. Dia bilang "Saya bersumpah demi Allah, tidak ada satu pun di antara kalian yang bisa menjadi seorang mu'min sejati, hingga rasa percaya kalian kepada Allah lebih besar dari pada apa yang kalian miliki di tangan kalian."

Begitulah kira-kira yang bisa saya terjemahkan dari video ini. Jika sahabat sekalian lebih pandai dalam bahasa Inggris, silakan saksikan video di bawah ini. Jika ada sahabat yang ingin mendownload video ini, silakan request via komen.

ALLAH MAKES RELIGION EASY FOR THE BELIEVERS

[ALLAH’S Quran - 18:88] “But as for him who believes and does righteous deeds - he will have the ultimate good [of the life to come] as his reward; and [as for us,] we shall make binding on him [only] that which is easy to fulfil."
islam way
Pic : http://www.allah.org/

The Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him ) has said:


[Bukhari, Volume #7, Hadith #38] "The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) once asked a companion: "(Is it true) that you fast all day and stand in prayer all night?" The companion replied that the report was indeed true. The Prophet then said: "Do not do that! Observe the fast sometimes and also leave (it) at other times; stand up for prayer at night and also sleep at night. Your body has a right over you, your eyes have a right over you and your wife has a right over you."

[Bukhari, Book #2, Hadith #38] “Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "religion is very easy and whoever overburdens himself in his religion will not be able to continue in that way. So you should not be extremists, but try to be near to perfection and receive the good tidings that you will be rewarded; and gain strength by worshipping in the mornings, the nights."
(See Fath-ul-Bari, Page 102, Vol 1).

[Bukhari, Book #21, Hadith #251] "Narrated 'Aisha: A woman from the tribe of Bani Asad was sitting with me and Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) came to my house and said, "who is this?" I said, "(She is) So and so. She does not sleep at night because she is engaged in prayer." The Prophet said disapprovingly: Do (good) deeds which is within your capacity as Allah never gets tired of giving rewards till you get tired of doing good deeds."

THIS IS NOT A PROPER HIJAB!

not proper hijab

ASSALAMUALAIKUM WARAHMARULLAHI TA’ALA WABARAKATUH. MY DEAR RESPECTED BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN ISLAM. AGAIN I MEAN NO MALICE AND HARM TO ANYONE. I AM SURE SOME OF YOU WILL NOT LIKE THIS THUS THERE SHALL BE A LOT OF BRICKBATS AND REVERBERATING EMOTIONS BUT MY AIM IS CLEAR….IT’S NOT INSULTING BUT SOMETHING TO BE REFLECTED ON. I am not talking about her faith or her love for ALLAH Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala but there is no excuse for a MUSLIM WOMAN to walk around looking like a "street worker" if you know what i mean.

To refresh our minds let us reflect on and share some notes about Important Obligatory Conditions For An Islamic Hijab

1. The hijab must not be a display

The hijab itself must not be a display. ALLAH Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala ordained it so as to cover the beauty of women and not for showing off. ALLAH Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala says:
"And not show of their adornment except only that which is apparent." [Noble Quran 24:31].

AND

"And stay in your houses and do not display yourselves like that of the times of ignorance."[Noble Quran 33:33].

It is in no way logical that the hijab itself be a source of display.

2. The hijab must not be transparent

The purpose of wearing hijab must be achieved. In order for the hijab to be a cover, it must not be made of transparent material making the woman covered only by name, while in reality she is naked. Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam) is quoted as saying:
"In the latest part of my Ummah (nation of Muslims) there shall be women who would be naked in spite of being dressed, they have their hair high like the humps of the Bukht camel, curse them, for they are cursed. They will not enter Al-Jannah and would not even perceive its odor, although it's fragrance can be perceived from a distance of 500 years traveling by camel" ~(Muslim)

It was reported that Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam) said: “There are two types of the people of Hell that I have not seen yet: men with whips like the tails of cattle, with which they strike the people, and women who are clothed yet naked, walking with an enticing gait, with something on their heads that looks like the humps of camels, leaning to one side. They will never enter Paradise or even smell its fragrance, although its fragrance can be detected from such and such a distance.” (Narrated by Ahmad and by Muslim in al-Saheeh).

This indicates that a woman could cause herself a grave and destructive sin if she puts on a garment that is thin and transparent and which clearly shapes her body's features.

3. Hijab must be roomy, and not tight.

The hijab is a safeguard against fitnah. If it is tight, it will be descriptive of the woman's body and this violates and defeats the whole purpose of hijab.

4. The hijab must not be perfumed

On the authority of Ad-Diya' Al-Maqdisi, Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam) said:
"Any woman who perfumes herself and passes by some people that they smell her scent, then she is a Zaniyah (adulteress)." ~(Sahih An-Nasaa’i)

5. The hijab shouldn't resemble the dress of a man

Imam Ahmed, an-Nasa'i reported that Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam) said:
"Women who assume the manners of men are not from us and also those of men who assume the manners of women."~( Sahih Al-Jami’)

Abu Hurairah narrated that: " Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam) CURSED the man who wears the dress of a woman and the woman who wears the dress of a man."~(Sahih Abi Dawud)

6. The hijab must not resemble the garments of the Kuffar

Abu Dawud and Ahmed have related that Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam) said:
"The one who take the similitude (manner) of a certain people, then he/she becomes one of them."~(Sahih Abi Dawud)

Abdullah bin Umar said: " Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam) saw me wearing two garments dyed in saffron (orange), whereupon he said: these are the clothes (usually worn) by the Kuffar, so do not wear them."~(Sahih Muslim)

7. The hijab should not be for fame

Abu Dawud and Ibn Majah have related that Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam) said:
"The one who wears a garment designed for a worldly fame, Allah will make them wear a garment of humility on the Day Of Resurrection then he will be set ablaze."~( [Musnad Ahmad, and it is Sahih]

The garment of fame is any garment a person wears to make themselves look famous. This applies whether the garment is highly precious and shows admiration to the life of this world or if it is chosen of a low quality to show lack of interest to this worldly life. The person may put on clothes with distinct colors so as to draw attention, act proudly and/or arrogantly.

BEWARE OF SUSPICIONS!!!

BEWARE OF SUSPICIONS!!!

ASSALAMUALAIKUM WARAHMATULLAHI TA’ALA WABARAKATUH.
DEAR RESPECTED BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN ISLAM.
AGAIN I AM REMINDING MYSELF FIRST BEFORE OTHERS SOLELY FOR THE SAKE OF ALLAH SUBHANAHU WA TA’ALA,

Now don’t you know that the companions (may ALLAH Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala be pleased with them) had lofty aims for this world and the next and would therefore clear their hearts from such ill-feelings towards
their brothers and sisters?.

Abu Hurairah (may ALLAH Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala be pleased with him) said that Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: "Beware of suspicion, for suspicion is the greatest falsehood. Do not try to find fault with one another, do not spy on one another, do not vie with one another, do not envy one another, do not be angry with one another, do not turn away from one another, and be servants of Allah, brothers to one another, as you have been enjoined…” (Bukhari and Muslim)

These were the simple instructions that produced the greatest generation ever to set foot on this planet. It was a generation of fallible humans with wide-ranging characters and personalities, strengths and weaknesses, likes and dislikes. They differed with one another even falling into disputes and argumentation, yet remained brothers one to another raised upon these principles laid out by the Messenger of Allah Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)

Even with the existence of hypocrites amongst their ranks, these principles where established to produce a united, victorious body in the face of formidable enemies. For these evils such as suspicion, fault-finding, envy, abandonment etc are evils that destroy a community with harms greater than any enemy could inflict.

Especially through these testing times, with such intense focus and pressure on our communities and individuals, combined with the modern-day need to ‘look after number one’, these prophetic orders are vital for our survival. We are ordered to be one united body, not falling into suspicion, spying, envy, desertion and other such actions that sow the seeds of enmity and hatred within our ranks.

The companions (may ALLAH Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala be pleased with them) had lofty aims for this world and the next and would therefore clear their hearts from such ill-feelings towards their brothers and sisters. It was for this very reason that the Ansari (May ALLAH Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala be pleased with him) was given glad tidings of being from the people of Paradise for the quality of going to sleep each night with no place in his heart for ill-intentions or envy.

Let us live up to these noble manners and enjoy the bliss of the People of Paradise to whom it will be said: “ (They shall be told to) enter it in peace and security! We will rid their hearts of the residual rancor and resentment. Seated on couches and facing each other, they will live there like brothers! “~(Noble Qur’an Surah Al-Hijr(15) Verse 46-47)

WHERE DO YOU KEEP YOUR NOBLE QUR'AN?


ASSALAMUALAIKUM WARAHMATULLAHI TA’ALA WABARAKATUH.
DEAR RESPECTED BROTHERS & SISTERS IN ISLAM.

JUST A SHORT NOTE TO REMIND ALL OF US SOLELY FOR THE SAKE OF ALLAH SUBHANAHU WA TA’ALA.

Muslims regard the Noble Qur'an as the literal word of ALLAH Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala, as revealed by the Angel Gabriel to the Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). The revelation was made in the Arabic language, and the recorded text in Arabic has not changed since the time of its revelation more than 1400 years ago. Although modern printing presses are used to distribute the Noble Qur’an Qur'an worldwide, the printed Arabic text of the Noble Qur'an is still regarded as holy.

In addition, when one is not reading or reciting from the Noble Qur'an, it should be closed and stored in a clean, respectable place. Nothing should be placed on top of it, nor should it ever be placed on the floor or in a bathroom. No one is to walk-over it and leave it locked somewhere to be forgotten later and to let it gathering dust.

Muslims often use a wooden book stand (rihal) when reading the Noble Qur'an, to keep the holy book off the floor. The Qur'an may also be held on one's lap or on a table.

In summary, Muslims believe that the Noble Qur’an should be handled with the deepest respect. However, ALLAH Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala All-Merciful and we cannot be held responsible for what we do in ignorance or by mistake. “ Allah does not burden any soul beyond its endurance. For it is what it earns, and against it is what it commits. “Our Lord, do not condemn us for what we forget, or err. Our Lord, do not levy upon us the (kind of) burden You laid upon those before us. Our Lord, do not impose upon us a burden that is greater than our strength to withstand. Pardon us, grant us forgiveness, and have mercy on us. You are our Protector! Grant us victory over the nation of unbelievers!” ~(Noble Qur’an 2:286)

Transliteration:
[Noble Qur’an 2:286] La yukallifu Allahu nafsan illa wusAAaha laha ma kasabat waAAalayha ma iktasabat rabbana la tu-akhithna in naseena aw akhta/na rabbana wala tahmil AAalayna isran kama hamaltahu AAala allatheena min qablina rabbana wala tuhammilna ma la taqata lana bihi waoAAfu AAanna waighfir lana wairhamna anta mawlana faonsurna AAala alqawmi alkafireena

Arabic (from right to left):
2:286 لايكلف الله نفسا الا وسعها لها ماكسبت وعليها مااكتسبت ربنا لاتؤاخذنا ان نسينا او اخطانا ربنا ولاتحمل علينا اصرا كما حملته على الذين من قبلنا ربنا ولاتحملنا مالاطاقة لنا به واعف عنا واغفر لنا وارحمنا انت مولانا فانصرنا على القوم الكافرين

Therefore, there is no sin in Islam on the person who mishandles the Noble Qur'an by accident or without the realization of wrongdoing.

ALLAH KNOWS BEST!

SUBHANALLAH!!! ALHAMDULILLAH!!! WALA ILAHA ILLALLAHU ALLAHUAKBAR!!!

I AM REMINDING MYSELF FIRST BEFORE OTHERS. AS WE ARE HEADING TOWARDS THE LAT TEN DAYS OF RAMADAN,…LET US STRIVE NOT TO REPEAT THE FOLLOWING COMMON & TYPICAL MISTAKES …..IN SHA ALLAH!!!

1 : Taking Ramadan as a ritual.

For many of us Ramadan has lost its spirituality and has become more of a ritual than a form of Ibadah. We fast from morning to night like a zombie just because everyone around us is fasting too. We forget that it’s a time to purify our hearts and our souls from all evil....we forget to make du’a, forget to beseech ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY to forgive us and ask Him to save us from the Fire. Sure we stay away from food and drink but that's about all.
Although the Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam) said:
“Jibreel said to me, May Allah rub his nose in the dust, that person to who Ramadan comes and his sins are not forgiven, and I said, Ameen.
Then he said, May Allah rub his nose in the dust, that person who lives to see his parents grow old, one or both of them, but he does not enter Paradise (by not serving them) and I said, Ameen.
Then he said, May Allah rub his nose in the dust, that person in whose presence you are mentioned and he does not send blessings upon you, and I said, Ameen.’”
(Tirmidhi, Ahmad, others. Saheeh by al-Albaani)

2 : Too much stress on food and drink


For some people, the entire month of Ramadan revolves around food. They spend the ENTIRE day planning, cooking, shopping and thinking about only food, food & food instead of concentrating on Salah, Qur’an and other acts of worship. All they can think of is FOOD. So much so that they turn the month of fasting into the month of feasting. Come Iftar time, their table is a sight to see, with the multitudes and varieties of food, sweets and drinks. They are missing the very purpose of fasting, and thus, increase in their greed and desires instead of learning to control them. It is also a kind of waste & extravagance.
".....and eat and drink but waste not by extravagance, certainly He (Allah) likes not Al-Musrifoon (those who waste by extravagance)" [Noble Qur’an al-Araaf :31]

3 : Spending all day cooking


Some of the sisters (either by their own choice or forced by their husbands) are cooking ALL day and ALL night, so that by the end of the day, they are too tired to even pray Isha’a, let alone pray Taraweeh or Tahajjud or even read Qur’an. This is the month of mercy and forgiveness. So throw away that aprons, turn off that ovens, stove and abandon that kitchen’s area and turn on your Imaan!

4 : Eating too much


Some people stuff themselves at Suhur until they are ready to burst, because they think this is the way to not feel hungry during the day time and haven’t you seen some people eat at Iftar, like there is no tomorrow?, trying to make up for the food missed?. However, this is completely against the Sunnah. Moderation is the key to everything.
Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: "The son of Adam does not fill any vessel worse than his stomach; for the son of Adam a few mouthfuls are sufficient to keep his back straight. If you must fill it, then one-third for food, one-third for drink and one-third for air." (Tirmidhi, Ibn Maajah. saheeh by al-Albaani).
How many times that we must be told that too much food distracts a person from many deeds of obedience and worship, makes him lazy and also makes the heart heedless.
It was said to Imam Ahmad: Does a man find any softness and humility in his heart when he is full? He said, I do not think so.. ………and I don’t think so either.

5 : Sleeping all day


Some people spend their entire day (or a major part of it) sleeping away their fast. Now tell me..Is this what is really required of us during this noble month? These people also are missing the purpose of fasting and are slaves to their desires of comfort and ease. They cannot bear to be awake and face a little hunger or exert a little self-control. For a fasting person to spend most of the day asleep is nothing but, negligence on his part.

6 : Wasting time


The month of Ramadan is a precious, precious time, so much so that ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY calls this month "Ayyamum Madoodaat" (A fixed number of days). Before we know it, this month of mercy and forgiveness will be over. We should try and spend every moment possible in the worship of ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY so that we can make the most of this blessing. However, there are some of us who waste away their day playing video games, or worse still, watching TV, movies or even listening to music….not to mention engage themselves in sing-along in Karaoke sessions…ASTAGHFIRULLAH!!! SUBHANALLAH! So much about that kinda Muslims nowadays don’t you agree? Trying to obey ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY by DISOBEYING Him!?

7 : Fasting but not giving up evil


Some of us fast but do not give up lying, cursing, slandering, fighting, backbiting, etc. and some of us fast but do not give up cheating, stealing, dealing in haram, buying lotto /sweepstakes/4Digits Lottery tickets, selling alcohol, fornication, etc. and all kinds of impermissible things without realizing that the purpose of fasting is to not only staying away from food and drink; rather the aim behind it is to fear ALLAH Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala!!!!!!.
“O you who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may become Al-Muttaqoon (the pious)” [Noble Qur’an al-Baqarah 2:183]
Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: "Whoever does not give up false speech and acting upon it, and ignorance, ALLAH has no need of him giving up his food and drink." ~(Bukhari)

8 : Smoking


Smoking is forbidden in Islam whether during Ramadan or outside of it, as it is one of al-Khabaaith (evil things). And this includes ALL kinds of smoking material eg. cigars, cigarettes, pipes, sheesha, hookah etc.
"He allows them as lawful At Tayyibaat (all good and lawful things), and prohibits them as unlawful Al Khabaa'ith (all evil and unlawful things) [ Noble Qur’an al-Araaf :157]
Again we have been informed numerous times before that smoking is harmful, not only to the one smoking, but also to the ones around him. It is also a means of wasting ones wealth. When are we gonna learn?
Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam) said: "There should be no harming or reciprocating harm."
This is especially true during fasting and it invalidates the fast. (Fatwa -Ibn Uthaymeen)

9 : Skipping Suhur


Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam) said: "Eat suhur for in suhur there is blessing."~(Bukhari & Muslim).
And Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam) also said: "The thing that differentiates between our fasting and the fasting of the People of the Book is eating suhur." ~(Muslim)

10 : Stopping Suhur at Imsaak


Some people stop eating Suhoor 10-15 minutes earlier than the time of Fajr to observe Imsaak.
Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen said: This is a kind of bidah (innovation) which has no basis in the Sunnah. Rather the Sunnah is to do the opposite. Allah allows us to eat until dawn: "and eat and drink until the white thread (light) of dawn appears to you distinct from the black thread (darkness of night)" ~[Noble Qur’an al-Baqarah 2:187]
And Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam) said: "….eat and drink until you hear the adhan of Ibn Umm Maktoom, for he does not give the adhan until dawn comes."
This imsaak which some of the people do is an addition to what ALLAH Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala has prescribed, so it is false. It is a kind of extremism in religion, and Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam) said: "Those who go to extremes are doomed, those who go to extremes are doomed, those who go to extremes are doomed."~ (Muslim). Do you get that O respected brothers & sisters in Islam?. I sincerely hope that we all will…In sha ALLAH.

11 : Not fasting if they missed Suhur


Some people are too scared to fast if they miss Suhur. However, this is a kind of cowardice and love of ease. What is the big deal if you missed a few morsels of food? It’s not like you will die. Remember, obedience to ALLAH Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala overcomes everything. Now what kinda Muslims are you? A weak ones? Let’s go back to basics.

12 : Saying the intention to fast out loud or saying a specific du'a to start fasting.


The intention is an action of the heart. We should resolve in our heart that we are going to fast tomorrow. That is all we need. It is not prescribed by the Shariah for us to say out loud, "I intend to fast", "I will fast tomorrow" or other phrases that have been innovated by some people.

13 : Delaying breaking fast


Some people wait until the adhan finishes or even several minutes after that, just to be on the safe side. However, the Sunnah is to hasten to break the fast, which means breaking fast whenever the adhan starts, right after the sun has set. Aishah (Radiyallahu Anha) said: This is what the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam) used to do”. ~(Muslim)
Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam) said: "The people will continue to do well so long as they hasten to break the fast."~ (Bukhari & Muslim)
Determine to the best of your ability, the accuracy of your clock, calendar, etc. and then have tawakkal on ALLAH Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala and break your fast exactly on time.

14 : Eating continuously until the time for Maghrib is up.


Some people if not all, will put so much food in their plates when breaking their fast and continue eating, enjoying dessert, drinking tea, etc., until they miss Maghrib. That is obviously not right. The Sunnah of the Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam) was that once he broke his fast with some dates, then he would hasten to the prayer. Once you are done with the prayer, you can always go back and eat some more if you wish.

15 : Missing the golden chance of having your Du’a accepted


The prayer of the fasting person is guaranteed to be accepted at the time of breaking fast.
Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam) said: "Three prayers are not rejected: the prayer of a father, the prayer of a fasting person, and the prayer of a traveler." ~(al-Bayhaqi, saheeh by al-Albaani).
Instead of sitting down and making Du’a at this precious time, some people forego this beautiful chance, and are too busy munching, chewing, burping, talking, setting the food, filling their plates and glasses, etc. Think about it....Is food more important than the chance to have your sins forgiven or the fulfillment of your Duas?. Yeah…yeah, as expected you will certainly prefer the food more…am I right? Astaghfirullah Al’azeem….

16 : Fasting but not praying


The fasting of one who does not pray WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED. This is because not praying constitutes kufr as the Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam) said: "Between a man and shirk and kufr there stands his giving up prayer." ~(Muslim)
In fact, NONE of his good deeds will be accepted; rather, they are all annulled.
"Whoever does not pray Asr, his good deeds will be annulled." ~(Bukhari)

17 : Fasting and not wearing Hijaab


Not wearing the Hijab is a major sin as it is obligatory for Muslim women. (See Surah Nur, Surah Ahzaab). So fasting and not wearing hijab certainly takes away enormously from the rewards of fasting, even if does not invalidate it.

18 : Not fasting because of exams or work


Exams or work is NOT one of the excuses allowed by the Shariah to not fast. You can do your studying and revision at night if it is too hard to do that during the day. Also remember that pleasing and obeying ALLAH Subhanahu wa Ta’ala is much more important than good grades. Besides, if you will fulfill your obligation to fast, even if you have to study, ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY will make it easy for you and help you in everything you do.
Please read: "Whosoever fears Allah, He will appoint for him a way out and provide for him from where he does not expect, Allah is Sufficient for whosoever puts his trust in Him." ~(Noble Qur’an Surah at-Talaaq 2-3)

19 : Mixing fasting and dieting


DO NOT make the mistake of fasting with the intention to diet. That is one of the biggest mistakes some of us make (especially the sisters). Fasting is an act of worship and can only be for the sake of ALLAH Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala alone.
Otherwise, mixing it with the intention of dieting may become a form of (minor) Shirk.

20 : Fighting over the number of Raka’ah of Taraweeh


There is no specific number of raka’ahs for Taraweeh prayer, rather it is permissible to do a little or a lot. Both 8 and 20 are okay. Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen said: "No one should be denounced for praying eleven or twenty-three (raka’ah), because the matter is broader in scope than that, praise be to ALLAH." See? This is another thing that will divide us Muslims if we continue to dwell on it after you’ve known the truth.

21 : Praying ONLY on the night of the 27th


Some people pray ONLY on the 27th to seek Lailat ul-Qadr, neglecting all other odd nights, although the Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam) said: "Seek Lailat ul-Qadr among the odd numbered nights of the last ten nights of Ramadan." ~(Bukhaari, Muslim).

22 : Wasting the last part of Ramadan preparing for Eid.


Some people waste the entire last 10 days of Ramadan preparing for Eid, shopping and frequenting malls, etc. neglecting Ibadah and Lailatul Qadr. although, Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam) used to strive the hardest during the last ten days of Ramadan in worship (Ahmad, Muslim) and not in shopping. Buy whatever you need for Eid before Ramadan so that you can utilize the time in Ramadan to the maximum.
Aishah (Radiyallahu Anha) said: “When the (last) ten nights began, the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam) would tighten his waist-wrapper (i.e., strive hard in worship or refrain from intimacy with his wives), stay awake at night and wake his family.” ~(Bukhari and Muslim).

23 : Iftar open houses / parties.


Although inviting each other for breaking fast is something good and encouraged, some people go to extremes with lavish Iftar parties with all sorts of disobedience to ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY, from flirting, mixing of the sexes and hijab-less women, to show-off and extravagance, to heedlessness to Salah, and Traweeh to even music and dancing.

LET’S STRIVE NOT TO REPEAT THE SAME IN THIS RAMADAN…IN SHA ALLAH!!!

SUBHANALLAH!!! ALHAMDULILLAH!!! WALA ILAHA ILLALLAHU ALLAHUAKBAR!!!

Blind Imam, Subhanallah

Subhan'Allah, do you know what this is picture of? It is a man leading prayer reading a Quran based off of braille for those that are blind! Indeed, some people may not be able to see with their eyes (like this man), but how many of us are blind when it comes to our hearts! This is truly a man who can see, ma'sha'Allah!

[And for those who are quick to complain, let us respect the fact that there is a legitimate and acceptable difference of opinion when it comes to reading out of the Quran when it comes to non-obligatory prayers (like the Taraweeh) and remember, "Let him who believes in Allah and the Last Day speak good, or keep silent."]

Allahu Akbar!

ABOUT PEOPLE OF THE ROCK!!!

Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam) used many methods in order to call people to Islam. For example, he used to tell them true realistic stories as well as the stories of the earlier nations so that they would deduce lessons from them. In these stories, ALLAH Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala says which translates as: "there is a message for any that has a heart and understanding or who gives ear and earnestly witnesses the truth" (Noble Qur’an Sura Qaaf: 37).


Three persons in the cave

Stories have an undeniable effect on people. Let's mention, respected brothers & sisters in Islam, one of the stories about one of the earlier nations as narrated by Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam) so that we can deduce useful lessons. Bukhari and Muslim reported that `Abdullah bin `Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) said: I heard Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam) says: “While three persons were traveling, the night fell and they had to enter a cave in a mountain in order to spend the night. A big rock rolled over and blocked the mouth of the cave. They said to each other: Nothing could rescue you but invoking Allah with the best deed you have performed (so Allah might remove the rock)”. One of them said, 'O Allah! My parents were old and I used to go out to collect wood. On my return I would milk (the animals) and take the milk in a vessel to my parents to drink. After they had drunk from it, I would give it to my children, family and wife. One day I was delayed and on my return I found my parents sleeping, but I disliked to wake them up, or to feed my family before them. I waited with the vessel in my hand with my children crying at my feet (because of hunger) until dawn when they woke up and drank their share of the milk. O Allah! If You regard that I did it for Your sake, then please remove this rock so that we may see the sky.' So, the rock was moved a bit but it was too small for them to get out.

The second said, 'O Allah! You know that I was in love with a cousin of mine, like the deepest love a man may have for a woman, and I tried to seduce her but she refused, until one day she became in need of money, and she came to me for help, so I offered her one hundred and twenty Dinaars (gold currency) provided she gives in to my desire, and she accepted. When I sat in between her legs, she said to me: Fear Allah, and asked me not to deflower her except rightfully (by marriage). So, I got up and left her, though she was the most desired and beloved to me, and made her keep the money. O Allah! If You regard that I did it for Your sake, kindly remove this rock.' So, the rock was moved a bit but it was to small for them to get out.

Then the third man said, “O Allah! Once I employed workers, and I paid them, except one who left with out taking his due share, so I invested it and from it great wealth developed. After some time that man came and demanded his money. I said to him: Go to those camels, cows and the shepherd and take them for they are all for you. He asked me not to mock him. I told him that I was not mocking him, so he took it all and left nothing behind. O Allah! If You regard that I did it sincerely for Your sake, then please remove the rock. So, the rock was removed completely from the mouth of the cave, and they came out walking”.

Remember Allah The Almighty

MASHAALLAH!! Respected brothers & sisters in Islam. Think over this great story. These three persons remembered ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY and followed his commands when they were free from any troubles and ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY saved them when they were in distress. Hence, whenever a man fulfills his duties towards ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY during times of ease, ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY will support him in times of worry, trouble and distress; He will be Most Gracious to him and facilitate maters for him. Allah says which translates as: " … And whosoever fears Allah, He will make for him a way out ( from hardships). And will provide him from sources he could never imagine" (At-Talaaq: 2-3). He also said which translates as: "And whosoever fears Allah, He will make his matter easy for him" (At- Talaaq: 4).

THE FIRST MAN in the cave gave a great example of dutifulness towards his parents. Throughout the whole night, he was holding the vessel of milk not allowing his children nor himself to drink (until his parents had drunk their share). He did not even disturb his parents by waking them up until dawn. This indicates the excellence of having and showing dutifulness to parents and that it is a means for facilitating one's affairs and avoiding distress. Dutifulness to one's parents is the best act of keeping relations with one's family and relatives.

Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam) said: "Whoever would like to have wider provisions and prolong his life, should keep good relations with his kith and kin" ~(Al-Bukhari & Muslim).

This is an advanced reward in this worldly life. His provisions are lavish and his life is prolonged, let aside the reward in the Hereafter. ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY highly honors parents to an extent that He prohibited the son to utter even the smallest word that indicates annoyance as He says which translates as: "Thy Lord has decreed that you worship none but him, and that you be kind to parents. Whether one or both of them attain old age in thy life, say not to them a word of contempt, nor repel them, but address them in terms of honor. And, out of kindness, lower to them the wing of humility, and say: my Lord bestow on them thy mercy even as they cherished me in childhood"~ (Noble Qur’an Sura Al-Isra’: 23-24).

Respected Brothers & Sisters in Islam! THE SECOND PERSON of the three in the story gave a great example of unmitigated virtuousness. He almost managed to fulfil his desire with this woman who was the most beloved person to him. Yet, when she reminded him to fear ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY, he left her in spite of his love and did not even take back his money.

Bukhari and Muslim reported a Hadith that there are seven people whom ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY will give shade on the Day when there will be no shade but His, one of these is "a man who refuses the call of a charming woman of noble birth for illicit intercourse with her and says: I fear Allah".

What a great difference it is between this man and the man who travels to countries where adultery is practiced openly! He travels in order to commit adultery with prostitutes. I seek refuge in ALLAH Subhanahu wa Ta’ala from such an act. Travelers to such countries should know that ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY sees them and that He is All-Knowing. He knows all about them in this country as well as in the other and they will find themselves with destruction if they do not repented. ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY says which translates as: "Those who invoke not, with Allah, any other god, nor slay such life as Allah has made sacred, except for just cause, nor commit fornication; and any that does this (not only) meets punishment. (But) the Penalty on the Day of Judgment will be doubled to him, and he will dwell therein in ignominy. Except he who, repents, believes, and works righteous deeds, for Allah will change the evil of such persons into good, and Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful" ~(Al-Furqan: 68).

In order to know how disgraceful adultery is, it is enough to think over the legal penalty of it in this worldly life. An unmarried adulterer (adulteress) is to be lashed one hundred times and exiled for a year. A married adulterer (adulteress) is to be put to death, but in a most horrible manner - stoning till death.

I seek refuge in ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY from the accursed Satan, ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY says which translates as: "Nor come close to adultery: for it is a shameful (deed) and an evil, opening the road (to other evils)" (Noble Qur’an Al-Isra’: 32).

Respected Brothers & sisters in faith! THE THIRD PERSON mentioned in this story was a man who gave the best example of honesty and sincerity. He invested the employee's wages and increased it greatly, he gave it (the accumulated wealth) to him and refused to take anything in return. What a great difference between this man and those who treat their employees unjustly and devour their wages, especially if such employees are from different countries! Such employers are very near to the people mentioned in ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY's saying which translates as: "Woe to those that deal in fraud, Those who, when they have to receive by measure from men, exact full measure, But when they have to give by measure or weight to men, give less than due. Do they not think that they will be called to account?" ~(Noble Qur’an Al- Mutaffifeen: 1-4).

They want the employees to perform their work as best as they can, but they do not give them their due wages or procrastinate in giving them. Some employees may return home without getting all their wages. Let those employers who hire an employee and deny him his wages, be aware that this helpless employee will not be their adversary; it will be ALLAH the Lord of the Worlds.

Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam) said that ALLAH has said: "There are three people whom I will litigate against on the Day of Judgment, and whosoever I litigate against will lose" Out of them, Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam) mentioned: "A man who hires a worker who fulfilled his duties, but he did not give him his wages".
This Hadith indicates that It is permissible to supplicate to ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY by mentioning good deeds. Such supplication is a means of relieving distress. Think about these three people who supplicated to ALLAH Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala by mentioning their best deeds when they were in distress and how ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY relieved it.

Delusions Of Dunya


delusion of dunya

ASSALAMUALAIKUM WARAHMATULLAHI TA’ALA WABARAKATUH,

RESPECTED BROTHERS & SISTERS IN ISLAM.

I AM REMINDING MYSELF FIRST BEFORE OTHERS ABOUT "Delusions of Dunya"SOLELY FOR THE SAKE OF ALLAH SUBHANAHU WA TA’ALA>

"...The life of this world is nothing but an illusion."
[Noble Quran al-Hadeed - 57:20]

"With firm words, Allah makes the believers steadfast in the life of this world and in the hereafter;and Allah lets the wrongdoers go astray. Allah does what He pleases."
[Noble Qur’an Surah Ibrahim - 14:27]

A person deeply involved in this worldly life puts his faith on the apparent meanings. A man might think that wealth makes him strong, gives him status and adorns him. We think that the medicines we eat cure us. We think the food we eat keeps us alive otherwise we will die. Our deep involvement in this Dunya forces us to believe that those who have the material support are more successful than the others. However, if one were to explore the domains of destiny, one would experience the reality that these ideas are nothing but illusions. ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY says in the Qur’an that the life of this world is nothing but an illusion of materials (wama al-hayatud-dunya illa mata'ul-ghuroor).

"Know that the life of this world is only play and amusement, a show and boasting among yourselves, a quest for greater riches and more children. Its similitude is that of vegetation that flourish after rain: the growth of which delights the tillers, then it withers and you see it turn yellow, soon it becomes dry and crumbles away. In the hereafter there will be either severe punishment or forgiveness from Allah and His good pleasure. The life of this world is nothing but an illusion." (Noble Qur’an Al-Hadid - 57:20]

Man wastes his lifetime running after something which has no effect on anything except that he ruins his hereafter. A believer is he who believes that nothing can happen without the Will of ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY. Therefore, his objective becomes to gain ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY's pleasure and not to run after this Dunya (World). No material possession can benefit or harm anyone if it is not desired by ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY. The principles say: Fire does not burn if ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY's Will is there. Cure comes from ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY, not from the doctor or the medicines. Nor does anyone die without His Will. Therefore, a Believer's trust should be on nothing and nothing but ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY alone, consequently ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY says: "..Allah is all sufficient for the person who puts his trust in Him..." [Noble Qur’an at-Talaaq - 65:3].

Prophet Dawud ('alaihi salam) was among the army of Talut ('alaihi salam). Recalling what Dawud ('alaihi salam) said to Jalut (Goliath): "You may have armor, shield, and sword, but I face you in the name of Allah, the Lord of the Israelites, Whose laws you have mocked. Today you will see that it is not the sword that kills but the will and power of Allah!". Companions of the Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) had a great degree of faith. The Sahabah say to the Prophet (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam): "By Allah, if you were to ask us to cross this sea and you plunged into it, we would plunge into it with you; not a man would stay behind". It is with this faith that these men were prepared to do anything for ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY's Deen, without worrying about the effects of any physical law. Because they know the reality which we find difficult to accept. Ayat of the Qur'an contain reality & wisdom in them. ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY says: "Wainnahu lahaqqu al-yaqeen" "And Verily, it (this Quran) is an absolute truth with certainty." [Noble Qur’an al-Haqqah - 69:51]. The laws contained in this Qur'an are valid for all times to come, therefore we should never let any doubt to find ways into our hearts. Observe the following.

"But those who knew with certainty that they were to meet their Lord, said: 'How often a small group overcame a mighty host by Allah's Leave?'
And Allah is with As-Sabirin (the patient ones)"
[Noble Qur’an al-Baqarah - 2:249]

"...And there is no victory except from Allah.
Verily, Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise."[Noble Qur’an Al-Anfaal - 8:10]

"O you who believe! If you help (in the cause of) Allah,
He will help you, and make your foothold firm."
[Noble Qur’an - 47:7]

Whenever Muslims place their Trust in ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY, Allah helps them. And whenever they rely on the worldly materials and numbers, they are deprived of ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY's help. Muslims lacked every material resource at Badr, but they were helped by ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY because of their Faith in ALLAH Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala. But in Hunayn Muslims were well equipped in everything, however many of them relied on these resources until the earth became tight for them and they realised that it is not the material things that profit but it is the help of ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY that gives success. Therefore, a believer does not rely on the material resources, even if the resources are in abundance.

"Allah has indeed helped you in many battlefields and on the day of Hunayn: when you were proud of your great numbers, but the numbers availed you nothing. The earth, with all its vastness, seemed to close in upon you, and you turned your backs and fled. But Allah sent down His Sakeenah (peace and tranquility) upon His Messenger and the believers and sent down to your aid those forces which you could not see, and punished the unbelievers. Thus was the recompense for the unbelievers." [Noble Qur’an At-Taubah - 9:25-26]

This world is made deceptive in such a way where the food obtained with illegal money tastes same as the food obtained with legal money. Similarly the criminals think there will be no recompense for their mischief. After all who would dare to stand against someone with the superpower? What superpower? Who is going to save them if ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY sends heavy stones or fireballs from the sky? Sayyidina Ibrahim ('alaihi salato was-salam) says: "why should I fear when the wrongdoers don't fear Allah?". Why fear from the criminals when they don't fear the Lord of the heavens and earth?

"[Ibrahim says:] Why should I fear your idols,when you are not afraid of your actions of making them partners with Allah, for which He has not given you any sanction?
Which one from the two parties of us deserves to feel secure? Tell me, if you know the truth." [Noble Qur’an Al-An'aam - 6:81]

How nice is the case of those who struggle for their rights; strive for the rights of others; struggle to defend the land of the Prophets; or defend the Deen of ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY?!!

How nice is the case of those who struggle without any weapon! How about the example of Prophet Zakariyah (Zechariah, 'alaihi salam) who was slaughtered because he was upholding the Deen of ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY. How about Sayyidina Yahya (John, 'alaihi salam), who also lost his neck for upholding the Book of ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY. They also plotted against Sayyidina Isa (Jesus, 'alaihi salam) but he was saved by the Will of ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY. Every soul has to return one day, but the successful will be those who return with His pleasure and with the fear of nothing but His alone. We should hope to join these people too (in sha'Allah).

ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY was watching those people before us. He is watching us too. ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY says: "Consider not that Allah is unaware of that which the Zalimoon do, but He gives them respite up to a Day when the eyes will stare in horror. (They will be) hastening forward with necks outstretched, their heads raised up (towards the sky), their gaze returning not towards them and their hearts empty (from thinking because of extreme fear)." [Noble Qur’an Surah Ibrahim - 14:42-43].

"So think not that Allah will fail to keep His Promise to His Messengers. Certainly, Allah is All-Mighty, - All-Able of Retribution." [Noble Qur’an Surah Ibrahim - 14:47]

If we could have even a glimpse of the Majesty of ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY, we would start to run over the oceans. If we could even recognise the beauty of our souls as being His beautiful gifts, we would not hesitate to move the high mountains. And if we could even understand that His Word, the Qur'an is the Absolute Truth, we would start to see the huge mountains moving aside from our path.

Now, lets learn from the instructions of Rasulullah (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam) given to Abdullah Ibn Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him):

The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wasallam) said: " Boy, I would like to teach you something. Be careful and follow Allah's commands perseveringly. Allah will protect you. You should safeguard His rights, and you will always find Him with you; if you need something, ask Allah, and when you need help, solicit Allah alone for the same. Bear it in mind that if all the people combined together to grant you some benefit, they would not be able to do so except that which Allah has determined for you and that if all of them were combined together to do you harm, they would not be able to do so except that which Allah has determined for you. The pens have been set aside and the writings of the book of fate have become dry." [ Tirmidhi]

"Glory be to your Lord, the Lord of Honor, He is free from what they ascribe to Him!Peace be on the Messengers, and praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds." Al-Quran [37:180-182]

SUBHANALLAH! ALHAMDULILLAH!! WALA ILAHA ILLALLAHU ALLAHUAKBAR!!!

Dari setiap kejadian di akhir zaman, akan semakin nampak mana orang-orang yang lurus dan mana yang menyimpang. Akan terlihat pula mana orang mu'min dan mana yang munafiq. Mana yang memiliki permusuhan dengan orang kafir dan mana yang berkasihsayang dengan mereka.
