He converted over 5500 people to Islam and said he stopped counting to maintain his sincerity.
He was a man of complete sincerity, a shining light in these dark times. For over 55 years of his life he traveled more than 72 countries, spending whatever he earned in his life in the path of Allah .He practice was to go in the path of Allah for about 8 months in a year and spends 4 months with his family.
Colonel Amiruddin Sahab RA born to a Scottish lady, Ella Allen later to become Halima Farid ud-Din, who converted to Islam when she was 16 years old after dreaming of the Kaaba. she married Nawab Farid ud-Din Khan a descendent of the prophet SAW two years later while he was in Scotland.
Titled “Innocence of Muslims”, the movie, produced by an American-Israeli real estate developer, portrays the Prophet as a fool, philanderer and a religious fake.
Alsalam aliekom wa rahmatouAllah;
Today I’m going to open one of sensitive topics spreads in Ummah wither Music is Haram or Halal, should I listen to the Nasheeds with Musical instruments or not ? for briefly, clearly , Mind to Mind and Heart to Heart chit chat lets begin
BismAllaher rahmaner rahim 🙂
Musical instruments are: the use of music, either alone or with lyrics does not violate the law and displeasing Allah •swt•
Scholars did not differ on Singing Itself, because the Prophet •pbuh• heard little girls were singing during days of Eid in Aisha’a house… but they spotted the light of using the Musical Instruments itself as subject
Importance of this subject comes from the presence of musical instruments in our lives: Read the rest of this entry
Fatwas issued in the First and Second Sessions of the
European Council for Fatwa and Research
Da’wa and Muslim Affairs
Q) Could the Honourable scholars, members of the ECFR give us their Fatwa on whether it is permissible for a Muslim to settle and reside permanently in non-Muslim countries. We would be grateful if the answer was supported by evidence from the Holy Quran, the Prophetic heritage (Sunna) and the statements of scholars and individuals of knowledge.
In Madinah during the reign of Sayyidinah Umar (R.A). Born in 21 AH, his father was a freed slave of Zaid ibn Thãbit (R.A), a famous companion of Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). Hasan Basri (R) was himself brought up in the house of Ummul Mu’meneen Ummi-Salmah (R.A).

( The Holy Quran, Surah Mariam (saint mary) 59-60)
Allah also say :
“The first thing which will be judged among a man’s deeds on the Day of Resurrection is the Prayer. If this is in good order then he will succeed and prosper but if it is defective then he will fail and will be a loser.” [Narrated by Nasaa’ee, Tirmidhee and Ibn Maajah]
The Prophet pbuh said (which means): The covenant between us and them is prayer, so if anyone abandons it he has become a disbeliever. [Ahmad, Tirmidhee, Nasaa’ee]
And he pbuh also said (which means): What lies between a man and disbelief is the abandonment of prayer. [Sahih Muslim, Aboo Dawood, Nasaa’ee]
And he pbuh said (which means): If anyone abandons prayer deliberately then he has no claim upon Allaah. [Ibn Maajah, ADAB-AL-MUFRAD of Bukhaari, Tabaraani]
And he , mentioning the prayer, said (which means): If anyone keeps to it, it will be light, evidence and salvation for him on the Day of Resurrection. But if anyone does not keep to it, it will not be light, evidence and salvation for him on the Day of Resurrection, and on that Day he will be associated with Qaroon, Pharaoh, Namaan and Ubayy bin Khalaf (an enemy of Islaam from among the Quraysh). [Ahmad, Tabaraanee, Ibn Hibbaan]
`Abdullaah bin Shaqeeq Al-`Aqeelee Tabi`ee (Tabi`ee: a successor to the companions of the Prophet ] said: “The Companions of the Prophet did not consider the abandonment of any good deed to be disbelief except the abandonment of the Prayer.” [Tirmidhee, Haakim]
When `Alee was asked about a women who did not pray, he said: “The one who does not pray is a disbeliever.” [Tirmidhee, Haakim]
Ibn Mas`ood (R) said: “The one who abandons the prayer has no religion.” [Muhammad bin Nasr Al Mirwazee]
Ibn `Abbaas (R) said: “The one who leaves off a single prayer deliberately will find, when he meets Allaah Most High, that He (T) is angry with him.” [Muhammad bin Nasr Al-Mirwazee, Ibn Abdul-Barr]
Ibn Hazm said: “There is no greater sin after polytheism than delaying a prayer until its time has passed and killing a believer without a just cause.”
Ibraheem Al-Nakha`ee said: “The one who has abandoned the prayer has become a disbeliever.”
Imam Hasan al-Basri:
“I saw a people from the Companions of the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam) saying:
‘Whoever acts without knowledge, then that which he corrupts and ruins is greater than that which he sets aright. The one who does deeds without ‘ilm is like a traveller without a path, so seek knowledge with such a seeking that does not harm ‘ibaadah (worship) and seek (to perform) ‘ibaadah such that it does not harm ‘ilm.
And a man from amongst them would seek knowledge until it was readily seen from his khushoo’ (humbleness), his zuhd (asceticism), his speech and sight.”
[Siyar A’laam al-Nubalaa’]
The link between ‘ilm and ‘ibaadah is one that we must all pay close attention to. If our knowledge is not adding to the quality and quantity of our ‘ibaadah, then it should be a cause for concern because the first benefit we receive from ‘ilm is evident in our ‘ibadah.
We ask Allaah for tawfeeq
By Maulana Achmat Salle,Cape Town. Presently, a residing Imaam in Mitchigan, USA.
There is a mosque whose foundation was laid from the first day on piety. It is more worthy that you stand forth therein for prayer. In it are men who love to be purified and Allah loves those who keep themselves pure (al ayah). In order to build a mosque on taqwa (GOD consciousness) the builders must also be GOD-fearing. In another verse ALLAH (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) mentions how Nabi Ebrahim and Ismail” (alayhis salaam) lay the foundation of HIS House in Makkah. One can hear them making thikr and duah. ‘0 Allah, accept from us, YOU are All Hearing, All-Knowing.
Some say a building is a building, but a building can be either an architectural masterpiece like the Taj Mahal or a monstrosity. When we plan our house there is a reason for every object, every plug, window or door we put in. Every adjustment we make we have a reason for it. Similarly, every part, object or style of a masjid carries its own symbolism. Very often we neglect the principles of traditional mosque architecture. These principles are high-lighted in Lings book on “Symbol and Archetype”.
QUESTION ON TAWASSUL
Is it true, as some people say, that tawassul or “seeking means” through the Prophet and the awliya’ such as seeking their intercession is not necessary nor a priority in Islam, because Allah said that He is near and answers whoever calls Him directly?
What about the statement in al-Wala’ wal-Bara’ according to the `Aqeedah of the Salaf whereby among the “ten actions that negate Islam” is “relying on an intermediary between oneself and Allah when seeking intercession”?
What about those who compare tawassul and asking intercession to the Christian worship of Jesus and the saints, those who reject tabarruk bi al-athar — getting blessings from the Prophet’s relics — as being outside Islam, and those who put limitations on invoking salawat — blessings and peace — on the Prophet?
And what about Albani’s claims that tawassul is not through the person of the Prophet even after his time, but through his du`a and only in his lifetime?
