The Best Jihad

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “The best (Jihad) is (to speak) word of justice to an oppressive ruler.”
——— Sunan of Abu-Dawood, Hadith 2040 ——

 

Positive and Good Behavior with wife

 ‎The Prophet Muhammad PBUH, Said; “If a man spends on his family (with the intention of having a reward from Allah) sincerely for Allah’s sake then it is a (kind of) alms-giving in reward for him.
[Sahih Bukhari Volume|2 Book|1 Number|52]

Dua

“Our Lord! Put not on us a burden greater than we have strength to bear.
Pardon us and grant us Forgiveness. Have mercy on us.

You are our Maula (Patron, Supporter and Protector, etc.) and give us victory over the disbelieving people.”

(The Noble Quran 2:286)

Visiting the Sick person

Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) reported: When the Prophet (peace be upon him) visited any ailing member of his family, he would touch the sick person with his right hand and would supplicate: “Allahumma Rabban-nasi, adhhibil-ba’sa, washfi, Antash-Shafi, la shifa’a illa shifa’uka, shifaan la yughadiru saqaman [O Allah! the Rubb of mankind! …Remove this disease and cure (him or her)!

You are the Great Curer. There is no cure but through You, which leaves behind no disease].”

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

It is reported that Wahb bin Munabbih – Allâh have mercy on him – said:

A scholar once asked another greater than him in knowledge,

“How much should I build?”

He replied, “As much as shelters you from the sun and the rain.”

He asked, “How much food should I eat?”

He replied, “More than what keeps you hungry and less than what makes you full.”

He asked, “How much should I wear?”

He replied, “As the Messiah did.”

He asked, “How much should I laugh?”

He replied, “As much as appears on your face but does not make audible your voice.”

He asked, “How much should I cry?”

He replied, “Never tire from crying out of the fear of Allâh.”

He asked, “How much should I hide my [good] deeds?”

He replied, “Until people think you had not done a good deed.”

He asked, “How much should I make public my deeds?”

He replied, “As much as will let the keen follow your example but not have the people talk about you.”

Wahb said.((Read carefully)) “Everything has two ends and a middle.

If you grab one end, the other will slant, but if you take the middle, both ends will balance. Stick to the balanced middle in all affairs.”

Abû Nu’aym, Hilyatu Al-Awliyâ.

Reading Holy Quran

And the Messenger has said, “O my Lord, indeed my people have taken this Qur’an as [a thing] abandoned.” !!

[The Noble Quran, Surat Alfurqan25:30] 

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU READ QURAN?

Last week?!

Last Month?!!

Are you OK with the prophet complaining you to ALLAH ??!!
Don’t abandon Quran, even if you will read one page per day!! but keep it up 🙂

“And We have indeed made the Qur’an easy to understand and remember, then is there any that will remember (or receive admonition)?
[The Noble Quran, Surah Al-Qamar]

Verily in the Remembrance of Allah, Do heart find rest.
[The Noble Quran 13:28]

The Status and Respect of Mother – According to Islam

To all mothers out there..


And the paradise is under the feet of your mothers. – Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)
Islam has greatly emphasized the issue of loving and respecting the parents, the father and the mother. In our infancy and childhood, we needed the protection, love and nurturing of the parents; but when they become old, they need us to protect them and take care of them.
“Your Lord has commanded that you shall not worship (anyone) but Him and to be good to the parents. If either or both of them reach old age with you, say not to them (so much as) ‘Ugh’ nor chide them, and speak to them a generous word. And lower for them ‘the wings of humility’ out of mercy; and pray; ‘O my Lord! Have mercy on them as they brought me up (when I was) little.'” (17:23-24)


However, out of the two, the mother has been given greater priority as far as kindness is concerned. Once Hakim bin Hizam came to the Prophet of Islam and asked: “To whom should I be kind?” The Prophet replied, “Your mother.” Hakim asked, “Then to whom?” The Prophet said, “Your mother.” Hakim asked, “Then to whom?” The Prophet replied, “Your mother.” Only when Hakim asked the fourth time that, “Then to whom?” the Prophet replied, “Your father.” This shows that the right of mother upon the children is three times more than the rights of father as far as kindness is concerned.
Imam Ali bin Hussain, the great-grandson of the Prophet, said: “Coming to the rights of relatives, it is the right of your mother that you should appreciate that she carried you [in her womb] as nobody carries anybody, and fed you the fruits of her heart which nobody feeds anybody, and protected you [during pregnancy] with her ears, hands, legs, hair, limbs, [in short] with her whole being, gladly, cheerfully and carefully; suffering patiently all the worries, pains, difficulties and sorrows [of pregnancy], till the hand of God removed you from her and brought you into this world.”


“Then she was most happy feeding you, even if she herself had no clothes; giving you milk and water; not caring for her own thirst; keeping you in the shade, even if she had to suffer from the heat of the sun; giving you every comfort with her own hardship; lulling you to sleep while keeping herself awake.”
“And [remember that] her womb was your abode, and her lap your refuge, and her breast your feeder, and her whole existence your protection; it was she, not you, who was braving the heat and cold of this world for your safety.”
“Therefore, you must remain thankful to her accordingly, and you cannot do so except by the help and assistance from Allah.” (The Charter of Right, p.18)


Each of us should appreciate what we have in our mothers. They are our teachers and our role models. Every day with them is an opportunity to grow as a person. Every day away from them is a missed opportunity.

Remember to show love and respect to your parents just the way they are with you since you were child. You never know what you have before you lose it. Think about it!
All mothers are same whatever religion or countries they belong to. This is what Islam taught us.
Now go and tell your mom how much you love her,I know for sure she will be happy to hear that from you 🙂
