It is so sad to see some friends and even worse family members engaged in this suicide leading desire 😦
May Allah guide them, In Sha Allah
Praise be to Allah and peace and blessings be on His Prophet SAWS.
Smoking is one of the things which has caused a lot of problems and harm these days and it has spread like wild fire. Before we discuss this topic in detail, we should know that Allaah the Almighty has divided things in the world into two types, good or permissible (al-tayyibaat, al-halaal) and evil or prohibited (al-khabaa’ith, al-haraam), and there is no third type. Allah says (interpretation of the meaning) in [The Holy Qurann, Surat al-A’raaf (7:157)]:
“And He makes good things halaal for them and bad things haraam.”
Considering this fact, smoking can either be permissible and good or prohibited and evil.
Thus, we present some of its characteristics and let the person asking the question see himself in which type lies smoking. Read the rest of this entry
Be angry, you have that right. Be hurt, that is your right also.
Cry, whatever helps. But don’t forget that Allah is all Merciful and everything works according to His plan.
There is no a tear that falls that He doesn’t see. Innocence may be lost and hearts may be broken, but Allah will mend them all with His love. Prayer works faster than cursing those that have hurt you.
Turn to Allah and ask Him to comfort you. For now, that’s all we can do. One day justice will be served. Patience (Sabr) is a virtue. If anyone behaves insolently or walks with an arrogant, he will meet Allah Almighty covered with His anger.And be patient when people harm you…Then the ego will walk the paths of obedience, like a fleeing horsemanin the field of battle. Be careful.
Do not hurt or abuse anyone, whether it be verbally, Physically or mentaly.You never know what other person might feel and to what extent, and remember Allah(سبحانه وتعالى)does not forgive sins committed against human rights until that person whom the sin was committed against forgives you.
Allah (swt) says: “For them there will be no food except from a poisonous, thorny plant, which neither nourishes nor avails against hunger” [Qur’an, 88:6-7]. The food will neither nourish nor taste good. It will only serve as a punishment to the people of Hell.
The food is further described here. The people WILL be eating and drinking in Hellfire to satisfy their hunger and thrist:
“Indeed, the tree of zaqqum, is food for the sinful. Like murky oil, it boils within bellies, like the boiling of scalding water.” [Qur’an, 44: 43-46]
and “Is Paradise a better accommodation or the tree of zaqqum? Indeed, We have made it a torment for the wrongdoers. Indeed, it is a tree issuing from the bottom of the Hellfire, its emerging fruit as if it was heads of the devils. And indeed, they will eat from it and fill with it their bellies. Then indeed, they will have after it a mixture of scalding water.” [Qur’an, 37: 62-67]
and “Then indeed you, O those astray [who are] deniers, will be eating from trees of zaqqum, and filling with it your bellies, and drinking on top of it from scalding water, and will drink as the drinking of thirsty camels.” [Qur’an, 56: 51-55]
So can you imagine what this tree will be like? The Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “If a drop from zaqqum were to land in this world, the people of earth and all their means of sustenance would rot. So how must it be for one who must eat it?” [Tirmidhi]
because it calls for unity based on family and tribalistic ties, whereas Islam binds people together on the `Aqeedah, that is belief in Allah (swt) and Prophet Muhammad PBUH. Islam calls for the ideological bond.
Grouping the Muslims on tribalistic lines is clearly forbidden. It is narrated by Abu Da’wud that the Messenger of Allah (saaw) said, “He is not one us who calls for `Asabiyyah, (nationalism/tribalism) or who fights for `Asabiyyah or who dies for `Asabiyyah.”
And in another Hadith, the Messenger of Allah (saaw) referring to nationalism, racism, and patriotism said:
“Leave it, it is rotten.” [Muslim and Bukhari] and in the Hadith recorded in Mishkat al-Masabith, the Messenger of Allah (saaw) said, “He who calls for `Asabiyyah is as if he bit his father’s genitals”
Also, the Messenger of Allah Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said, narrated by At-Tirmidhi and Abu Dawud,
“There are indeed people who boast of their dead ancestors; but in the sight of Allah they are more contemptible than the black beetle that rolls a piece of dung with its nose. Behold, Allah has removed from you the arrogance of the Time of Jahiliyyah (Ignorance) with its boast of ancestral glories. Man is but an Allah-fearing believer or an unfortunate sinner. All people are the children of Adam, and Adam was created out of dust.”
Also, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said,
“Undoubtedly Allah has removed from you the pride of arrogance of the age of Jahilliyah (ignorance) and the glorification of ancestors. Now people are of two kinds. Either believers who are aware or transgressors who do wrong. You are all the children of Adam and Adam was made of clay. People should give up their pride in nations because that is a coal from the coals of Hell-fire. If they do not give this up Allah (swt) will consider them lower than the lowly worm which pushes itself through Khara (dung).” [Abu Dawud and Tirmidhi] Read the rest of this entry
