Why not Pork?? Do you know why Muslims do not eat pork ?

Do you know why Muslims do not eat pork ??? 🤔🤔

German person, asked me why do not you eat pork? Why do Muslims not eat pork? He asked me to explain to him one reason scientifically and not religiously, he asked me to have a convincing answer if I can!
I said to him: Give me one hour and give you the answer in German and explain the reason scientifically, God willing. So I searched the Internet and browsed a lot of scientific pages English, German and international ..
And if shocked by a report I found at the German site:
The source is the German Commission for Food Standards Control. The following is a useful summary of pork:
* The pig eats the dead (his wound) and if his father.
* Pig eats almost everything: urine and even your urine! The residue of other animals, the dirt that was wet, the swollen Jeff eating, the raw plants and wet wet.
* Pig percentage of body toxins more than 30 times of lamb meat.
* Pig does not sweat! Wipe it like sponge absorbs all dirt! This is a disaster in itself.
* When eating lamb meat takes from 6 to 9 hours to digest it when the liver absorbs a small amount of toxins in a large time, while pork takes from one to two hours and in this the liver is covered and soaked in toxins!
* The male pig is homogenous with any daba and if it is male, which makes him pregnant.
* After 3 hours of killing pig only worms come out of his body!
* There are worms in the body of the pig does not die even after cooking or roasting!
* Cooked pork takes 6 hours. Pork can not be roasted where it continues to melt until it disappears, and this is similar to human flesh,
* Pork is used in cosmetic surgery as an alternative to human skin, and those who do the tattoo (tattoo) tattoo on the skin of a pig before the skin of the customer.
* There is blood coagulated in the head of the pig because he is the only creature who does not lift his head up.
* Pig hair is still only burned! Roast!
* Pig does not smell jellied before eating it! But empties the nostrils of his nose to eat if it is clean, then eat it.
I sent this report to him with his source to this person and if he refrains from eating pork again ….. And if he also publishes this report in all German pages under the title Why do not Muslims eat pork!

This publication discusses scientifically the one who is not a Muslim, but we do not read the text of the readers …. God Almighty said ((deprived of dead and blood and pork)) Please commented admirably to the grain until the continued arrival of publications to your page if Blake to Jarob (Abdomen worshipers of God) 👍👍👍🌹🌹🌹👍👍👍

Halal VS Haram In Islam

DEAR PARENTS, PLEASE BE CAREFUL BETWEEN MAGHRIB AND ISHAA

DEAR PARENTS, PLEASE BE CAREFUL BETWEEN MAGHRIB AND ISHAA

AS dusk is Approaching, this knowledge will be very beneficial to every parent who wishes no harm to their household, Inshaa Allah

The prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم said:

”After the sun sets, Hold on to your kids, as the Devils are spreading at that time.
After an hour has gone past you can let them go, But keep your doors closed while making Dhikr (saying Bismillah), as the Devil does not open a closed door and close any water bottle, while making Dhikr and put the lid on any pan while making Dhikir, even if you cover them with anything and turn your lights off”
Al-Bukhari #3280 and Muslim #2012

The prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم said:

”Do not send your kids or animals (such as sheep, cattle or camels) after the sun sets, until the darkness of Ishaa falls, As the devils are being discharged between those times”
Muslim #2013

You might be asking yourself:

What could possibly be the reason behind this. What happens between Maghreb and Ishaa

Well, what happens is that the Shaythan (devils) start to look for a place to hide, as they move around earth in large numbers, Only Allah knows how many and they move in extremely fast speed, much faster than we can imagine.

This of course poses a threat to some as they might get crushed by other devils. So they start looking for a place to hide.

The Hadeeth is explaining to us what the devils might do in their search for a safe place to hide:

Some of them might enter a bottle and stay there until it’s safe,

Some might hide in a saucepan, or a bucket and some might enter the house of a human.

A Shaythaan might hide behind a group of humans who are unaware of this.

With those humans not making any Dhikr the Shaytaan is safe from the crushing power of other Shaythan roaming the Earth like a hurricane.

It is in the nature of Shaythan to hide in dirty places, such as toilets, rubbish bins…etc.

They might also get into a child who doesn’t know yet how to make Dhikr and stay inside that child until it’s safe to get out.

The parents of that child might notice a sudden change of mood in their child’s behaviour.

The parents might think that the child needs to be disciplined when the child might cry as he/she is bothered by the Shaythan in his body.

One of the biggest attractions to Shaythan is nappies, as it’s dirty and it belongs to a child who doesn’t know yet how to make Tahseen (prevention from Devils by reading Qur’an and making Du’a).

Therefore we remind Muslims to be careful and not to let their doors open between Maghrib and Isha.

They also should read Qur’an aloud around their children to prevent Shaythan from seeking refuge in their tiny bodies.

May Allah protect us all from Shaythan and prevent them from harming our children.

*آمــــــــــــــــــين يا رب العالمين*

Allah is the most merciful

Rasūlillah صلى الله عليه وسلم said, “A man who never did any good deed, said to his family, ‘When I die, you should burn me and throw half the ashes of my burnt body in the earth and the other half in the sea.

For by Allāh, if Allāh should get a hold of me, He would inflict such a punishment on me, as He has never inflicted on anybody among the people before.”

But when he died, Allāh ordered the sea to collect his ashes and similarly ordered the earth to collect his ashes.

When Allāh recreated him, Allāh asked, “Why did you do such a thing?”

The man replied, “For being afraid of You, and You know it very well.”

Because of this, Allāh forgave him.

Despair not, the Mercy of Allāh. Qūr’an

[Sahih Bukhari.]

Dearest people

It was narrated from Ibn ‘Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) that a man came to the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) and said: O Messenger of Allah, which of the people is dearest to Allah? And which deeds are dearest to Allah? The Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “The dearest of people to Allah, may He be exalted, is the one who does most benefit to people, and the dearest of deeds to Allah, may He be exalted, is joy that you bring to a Muslim, or relieving him of distress, or paying off debt for him, or dispelling his hunger. And to walk with a brother to meet his needs is dearer to me than observing i‘tikaaf in this mosque – meaning the mosque of Madinah – for a month.” Narrated by at-Tabaraani (12/453); classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh at-Targheeb (955).

“The best men are those who are best to thier wives.”

“…And live with them in kindness…”-Quran (4:19)

“And of His signs is that He created for you from yourselves mates that you may find tranquility in them; and He placed between you affection and mercy. Indeed in that are signs for a people who give thought.” Ar-Rum 30:21)

“The best among you are those who are best to their wife. (Ibn Majah)

“The most complete of the believers in faith, is the one with the best character. And the best of you are those who are best to their women.” (Tirmidhi)

“The world is provision and the best provision in the world is a righteous woman.” (Sahih Muslim 1467)

“…good women (are) for good men, and good men (are) for good women.”-Quran (24:26)

“And we created you in pairs.”-Quran (78:4)

Hazrat Umar Ibn Al Khattab (R.A.) said:
“No man can have anything better after faith (Iman) than a woman of righteous character, loving and child-bearing.”

Provide for her, protect her and take care of her:

“Men are the protectors and maintainers of women…”-Quran (4:34).

Look after her and your children:

“What you feed yourself is charity for you, what you feed your children is charity for you, what you feed your wife is charity for you, and what you feed your servant is charity for you.” (Musnad Ahmad 16727) You need to take care of them, look after them all.

Prophet (SAW) even encouraged people to feed their wives with their own hands, Prophet (SAW) many times fed Aisha (R.A.) this way. “You will be rewarded for whatever you spend for Allah’s sake even if it were a morsel which you put in your wife’s mouth.” (Sahih Al Bukhari)

Express your love to her:

Anas (R.A.) narrated that the Prophet (SAW) was asked, ‘O Messenger of Allah, which of the people is most beloved to you?’
He answered: “`A’ishah.”
He was asked, ‘And among men?’
He said: ‘Her father.‘ (Ibn Majah and authenticated by Shayk Al-Albani)

Mu’aawiyah Ibn Haydah (R.A.) said: “I said, ‘O Messenger of Allah (SAW), what is the right of the wife of any one of us over us?’ He said: ‘That you should feed her as you feed yourself and clothe her as you clothe yourself, that you should not say to her “May Allah make your face ugly!” and that you should not beat her.” (Reported by Abu Dawood, 2/244; Ibn Maajah, 1850; Ahmad, 4/446). You need to feed her, provide for her and take care of her.

The different stages of life

The Different Stages of Man

Here Allah points out how man passes through different stages of creation, one phase after another. He is originally created from dust, then from a Nutfah, then from a clot, then from a lump of flesh.

Then he becomes bones, then the bones are clothed with flesh, then the soul is breathed into him. Then he emerges from his mother’s womb, weak and thin and powerless. Then he grows up little by little, until he becomes a child, then he reaches the stage of puberty, then he becomes a young man, which is strength after weakness.

Then he starts to get older, reaching middle age, then old age and senility, weakness after strength, so he loses his resolve, power of movement and ability to fight, his hair turns grey and his characteristics, both inward and outward, begin to change. Allah says: [ثُمَّ جَعَلَ مِن بَعْدِ قُوَّةٍ ضَعْفاً وَشَيْبَةً يَخْلُقُ مَا يَشَآءُ] (then after strength gave (you) weakness and grey hair. He creates what He wills.) He does whatsoever He wills and controls His servants in whatever way He wants. [وَهُوَ الْعَلِيمُ الْقَدِيرُ] (And He is the All-Knowing, the All-Powerful.)

[وَيَوْمَ تَقُومُ السَّاعَةُ يُقْسِمُ الْمُجْرِمُونَ مَا لَبِثُواْ غَيْرَ سَاعَةٍ كَذَلِكَ كَانُواْ يُؤْفَكُونَ – وَقَالَ الَّذِينَ أُوتُواْ الْعِلْمَ وَالإِيمَـنَ لَقَدْ لَبِثْتُمْ فِى كِتَـبِ اللَّهِ إِلَى يَوْمِ الْبَعْثِ فَهَـذَا يَوْمُ الْبَعْثِ وَلَـكِنَّكُمْ كُنتمْ لاَ تَعْلَمُونَ – فَيَوْمَئِذٍ لاَّ ينفَعُ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُواْ مَعْذِرَتُهُمْ وَلاَ هُمْ يُسْتَعْتَبُونَ ]

(55. And on the Day that the Hour will be established, the criminals will swear that they stayed not but an hour — thus were they ever deluded.) (56.

And those who have been bestowed with knowledge and Faith will say:

“Indeed you have stayed according to the decree of Allah, until the Day of Resurrection; so this is the Day of Resurrection, but you knew not.”) (57. So, on that Day no excuse of theirs will avail those who did wrong, nor will they be allowed to return to seek (Allah’s) pleasure.)

Purofy our hearts

Purify our hearts 🧡

Imam Al Bukhari رحمه الله narrated on the authority of Imam Muhammad ibn Sireen رحمه الله that he said “We were sitting with Abu Hurayrah رضي الله عنه and he had two linen garments dyed with red clay, and he wiped his nose with one of them, and then he said “بخ بخ Abu Hurayrah is wiping his nose in linen garments! There came a time when I would fall senseless between the pulpit of Allah’s Messenger ﷺ and `Aisha’s رضي الله عنها dwelling whereupon a passerby would come and put his foot on my neck, considering me a mad man, but in fact, I had no madness, I suffered nothing but hunger.” *بخ بخ* is an exclamation of amazement among the Arabs. This was the state of Abu Hurayrah رضي الله عنه who narrated the most Ahadeeth from amongst the Sahaba رضي الله عنهم.

This was the condition for the majority of them! Yet they never let their poverty, their hunger, their suffering stop them from worshipping and obeying Allah! And specifically, it didn’t stop Abu Hurayrah رضي الله عنه from seeking knowledge! While we, living comfortable lives, in relative comfort, Struggle with the most basic acts of worship! Why? Their hearts weren’t attached to this Dunya! They were amazed when a little came their way! Their Dunya was never a Jannah for them!

As Allah says: *وَمَا الْحَيَاةُ الدُّنْيَا إِلَّا مَتَاعُ الْغُرُورِ* And what is the life of this world except the enjoyment of delusion. But we are indulgent in the Dunya and have attached ourselves to it and made it our Jannah, Thus we struggle even while being able!

As Allah says: *بَلْ تُؤْثِرُونَ الْحَيَاةَ الدُّنْيَا* But you prefer the worldly life, *وَالْآخِرَةُ خَيْرٌ وَأَبْقَىٰ* While the Hereafter is better and more enduring.

We must let go of the Dunya in our hearts, even if we live with wealth! Have your wealth no problem, But let the same الحمد الله you exclaim when you have it, be the same الحمد الله when you don’t have it! This is true Zuhd!(detachment) Empty our hearts of what our hands are full of.

May Allah ﷻ purify our hearts of false attachments to this Dunya and its temptations, forgive our sins and enter us into Firdous.

Anal sex in Islam

Is it permissible to perform anal sex in Islam?

What do the scholars and muftis of the mighty Shari’ah say regarding this matter: is it permissible to have anal sex with one’s wife?

ANSWER:

Having intercourse via the back passage of a woman is known as anal sex and this is definitely Harām [Harām Qat’ī], the one who deems it permissible is a Kāfir and the perpetrator [of anal sex] is a transgressor and a sinner; after mentioning the prohibition of the front region [vagina] of woman in the state of menstruation, Allāh (Most High) states “So when they become pure, approach them from where Allāh has commanded you.” [Sūrah alBaqarah, verse 222] Meaning that enter women in the place where Allāh (Most High) has commanded you and that is the vagina.

It has been mentioned in a Blessed Hadīth, “On the authority of Abū Hurayrah, the Prophet of Allāh (may the peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) said,

‘The one who has intercourse with the menstruating woman, or has intercourse through her back passage or goes to a soothsayer, has disbelieved in what was revealed to the Prophet (may the peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him).’” [Sunan al-Tirmidhī, vol 1, pg 185, Hadīth 135]

‘Allāmah ‘Abdul Mustafā A’zamī states that it means that the one who carries out these acts and he considers them permissible, then without doubt, he has become a Kāfir [disbeliever] because considering Halāl that which Allāh (Most High) has made Harām is Kufr [disbelief] and if these acts are carried out whilst considering them Harām, then he is a major sinner, and whilst being a Muslim, he has committed an act of [the people of] Kufr. [Jahannam ke Khatrāt, pg 122]

It is mentioned in Jawharah that “As for intercourse in the back passage, so it is Harām in the states of menstruation and purity because Allāh (Most High) stated, ‘approach them from where Allāh has commanded you’ i.e. from where He prohibited you to approach them in the state of menstruation and that is the vagina.” [Jawharah Nayyīrah, vol 1, pg 86]

This act is referred to in Badā’i al-Sanā’I as Lūtiyyah al-Sugrā (the lesser sodomy), “It is impermissible to have intercourse with the wife in her back passage… and upon this the narrations of the Prophetic Companions (may Allah be pleased with them) have come stating that this act is called the lesser sodomy.” [Badā’i’ al-Sanā’i’, vol 5, pg 350]

Muftī Ahmad Yār Khān Na’eemī states that anal sex is prohibited [Harām] in all religions and in Islām it is undoubtedly prohibited [Harām Qat’ī], and its denier [i.e. the one who considers it Halāl] is a Kāfir and its perpetrator is a transgressor and sinner. [Mirāt ul-Manājīh, vol 5, pg 104] Furthermore, this evil act has been strictly prohibited in the blessed Hadīth“

“It is narrated from Khuzaymah bin Thābit that he said that the the Prophet (may the peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) said three times that: ‘Indeed, Allāh (Most High) does not hesitate to mention the truth – do not have intercourse with women in their back passages.’” [Sunan ibn Mājah, Hadīth 1924, vol 2, pg 450] Answered by Mufti Qasim Zia al-Qadri

Modesty in Islam

Prophet Mohammad PBUH said: “Every Deen has an innate character. The character of Islam is modesty (haya).” (Abu Dawood)

The Definition of Haya’ Haya’ comes from hayat (life). It is that which keeps you ethically and spiritually alive. Just like a body gets its value from being alive, the spirit, soul, character and person gets their value from having haya’.

The reality of haya’ is that it is that trait which motivates you to do what is good. That same trait discourages you from doing anything shameful. It is the one quality that make Muslims stand out.

Words that encompass aspects of haya’: shame, humility, self-respect, honor, bashfulness, shyness The Prophet’s Statements on Haya’ The Prophet Muhammad PBUH said, “Faith (Belief) consists of more than sixty branches (i.e. parts). And Haya’ is a part of faith.” (Bukhari).

Prophet Muhammad PBUH passed by a man who was admonishing his brother regarding Haya’ and was saying, “You are very shy, and I am afraid that might harm you.” On that, Allah’s Apostle said, “Leave him, for Haya’ is (a part) of Faith.” (Bukhari)

Prophet Mohammad PBUH said: “Haya does not bring anything except good.” (Bukhari).

Having haya’ towards Allah – a Muslim should feel ashamed to have Allah see him doing – or hear him saying – something that displeases Allah, especially when that Muslim is alone and out of the view of humankind. Haya’ towards the angels – as they are noble and dignified creatures who witness the acts performed by humans.

Haya’ towards other humans – an essential characteristic that keeps people from harming one another and from performing indecent acts. Haya’ towards the person him/herself – a person should be ashamed of him/herself when he/she performs acts that are shameful.

If he/she notices that his/her haya’ level is low he/she should improve it by remembrance of Allah, getting closer to Him, and fearing Him.

Hadith about pride

“And do not walk upon the earth exultantly. Indeed, you will never tear the earth [apart], and you will never reach the mountains in height.”-Quran (17:37)

All of us will soon die!

All of us will soon die!
All of us will soon depart from this world.
[Allah ﷻ says] *كُلُّ مَنْ عَلَيْهَا فَانٍ*
All that is on it [the earth] will perish. *وَيَبْقَى وَجْهُ رَبِّكَ ذُو الْجَلْـلِ وَالإِكْرَامِ*
And the Face of your Lord the owner of greatness and pride will remain.
Allah ﷻ says *كُلُّ نَفْسٍ ذَائِقَةُ الْمَوْتِ*
Every soul shall taste death.
*وَإِنَّمَا تُوَفَّوْنَ أُجُورَكُمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ ۖ
* And only on the Day of Resurrection shall you be paid your wages in full._

*فَمَنْ زُحْزِحَ عَنِ النَّارِ وَأُدْخِلَ الْجَنَّةَ فَقَدْ فَازَ ۗ*
And whoever is moved away from the Fire and admitted to Paradise, he indeed is successful.
*وَمَا الْحَيَاةُ الدُّنْيَا إِلَّا مَتَاعُ الْغُرُورِ*
The life of this world is only the enjoyment of deception.
Ibn Kathir رحمه الله writes:
Therefore, Allah Alone is the Ever-Living Who never dies, while the Jinn, mankind and angels, including those who carry Allah’s Throne, shall die. The Irresistible One and Only, will alone remain for ever and ever, remaining Last, as He was the First. Just a thought; Regarding the second Ayah, Allah ﷻ starts it by mentioning death, and then ends it with the reminder of how short the Dunya is. But the one who enters Jannah and is saved from Hellfire.
That is the ultimate victory. Because no matter how many millions you have, how many cars or women.
*كل من عليها فان*
All that is on it [the earth] shall perish.
As Muhammad ﷺ said _
“(By Allah! This life, compared to the Hereafter, is just as insignificant as when one of you dips his finger in the sea; let him contemplate what his finger will come back with.” Rather the true success lies with the avoidance of the fire, and entrance into Jannah!

Think about these Ayaat!
This is the comparison, and the stark reality! This Dunya is a piece of snow, melting in your hand as you try and keep hold of it, While the shining jewel you have neglected; the Akhirah, that doesn’t perish, is waiting for you to just grab it with both hands!

By Allah! The Dunya is so short, that merely waiting for Qiyamah to start, on Hashr, the people will lament at how the Dunya felt like a morning!

In the journey of Life..

In your Journey, you will meet many Souls. Some relationships will be blessings, others will serve as lessons. Either way, never regret knowing someone. Everyone you encounter teaches you something important that you need to learn. Some people will test you, some will use you, and some will teach you; But most importantly some will be the ones who will inspire you and bring out the best in you. And when you find the right people who will love and pray for you, who stand by you through the good and bad. For they are the ones who will truly help you in your journey and make your souls blossom. So choose your friends wisely… ❝Close friends, that Day, will be enemies to each other, except for the righteous.❞ [Surah Az-Zukhruf : 67]

Racism and Islam

“Islam Kills racism.” ~ Malcolm X

Prophet Mohammad PBUH Said:

“All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over a black nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety and good action. Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim and that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood. Nothing shall be legitimate to a Muslim which belongs to a fellow Muslim unless it was given freely and willingly. Do not, therefore, do injustice to yourselves.

Remember, one day you will appear before God (The Creator) and you will answer for your deeds. So beware, do not stray from the path of righteousness after I am gone.

Prophet Muhammad’s Last Sermon

Date delivered:

632 A.C.

This sermon was delivered on the Ninth day of Dhul al Hijjah 10 A.H. in the ‘Uranah valley of Mount Arafat.

After praising, and thanking God, he said:

“O People, listen well to my words, for I do not know whether, after this year, I shall ever be amongst you again. Therefore listen to what I am saying to you very carefully and TAKE THESE WORDS TO THOSE WHO COULD NOT BE PRESENT HERE TODAY.

“O People, just as you regard this month, this day, this city as Sacred, so regard the life and property of every Muslim as a sacred trust. Return the goods entrusted to you to their rightful owners.

Treat others justly so that no one would be unjust to you. Remember that you will indeed meet your LORD, and that HE will indeed reckon your deeds. God has forbidden you to take usury (riba), therefore all riba obligation shall henceforth be waived. Your capital , however, is yours to keep. You will neither inflict nor suffer inequity. God has judged that there shall be no riba and that all the riba due to `Abbas ibn `Abd al Muttalib shall henceforth be waived. Every right arising out of homicide in pre-Islamic days is henceforth waived and the first such right that I waive is that arising from the murder of Rabi`ah ibn al Harith ibn `Abd al Muttalib.

O Men, the Unbelievers indulge in tampering with the calendar in order to make permissible that which God forbade, and to forbid that which God has made permissible. With God the months are twelve in number. Four of them are sacred, three of these are successive and one occurs singly between the months of Jumada and Sha`ban. Beware of the devil, for the safety of your religion. He has lost all hope that he will ever be able to lead you astray in big things, so beware of following him in small things.

O People, it is true that you have certain rights over your women, but they also have rights over you. Remember that you have taken them as your wives only under God’s trust and with His permission. If they abide by your right then to them belongs the right to be fed and clothed in kindness. Treat your women well and be kind to them, for they are your partners and committed helpers. It is your right and they do not make friends with anyone of whom you do not approve, as well as never to be unchaste…

O People, listen to me in earnest, worship God (The One Creator of the Universe), perform your five daily prayers (Salah), fast during the month of Ramadan, and give your financial obligation (zakah) of your wealth. Perform Hajj if you can afford to.

All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over a black nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety and good action. Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim and that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood. Nothing shall be legitimate to a Muslim which belongs to a fellow Muslim unless it was given freely and willingly. Do not, therefore, do injustice to yourselves.

Remember, one day you will appear before God (The Creator) and you will answer for your deeds. So beware, do not stray from the path of righteousness after I am gone.

O People, NO PROPHET OR MESSENGER WILL COME AFTER ME AND NO NEW FAITH WILL BE BORN. Reason well, therefore,

O People, and understand words which I convey to you. I am leaving you with the Book of God (the QUR’AN*) and my SUNNAH (the life style and the behavioral mode of the Prophet), if you follow them you will never go astray.

All those who listen to me shall pass on my words to others and those to others again; and may the last ones understand my words better than those who listen to me directly. Be my witness O God, that I have conveyed your message to your people.

*The Qur’an: Revealed to Prophet Muhammad during the period from 610-632 AC. The first five verses revealed are:

(1) Read in the name of your Lord, Who created.

(2) Created man out of a clot that clings (in the womb).

(3) Read and your Lord is the Most Bountiful.

(4) Who taught by the pen.

(5) Taught man that which he knew not. Back to Introduction to Islam HomePage

Little Good Deeds

LITTLE GOOD DEEDS – [Part 2 of 2]
====================

Holy Prophet PBUH said, “The best deeds are those which are consistent even if they are small.” (Bukhari) If we keep doing little good actions regularly, they can help in making our records heavier on the scales insha Allah. Here are a few of those little good actions which all of us can do easily on daily basis:

8. Gratitude:
==================
We should always be thankful to Allah for what He has bestowed upon us, as well as to those people who help in a difficult situation. Holy Prophet PBUH said, “Those who do not thank people, they do not thank Allah.” (Tirmidhi)

If someone has helped you, or given you a gift or made you happy, thank them from the bottom of your heart. And Allah is the worthiest to be thanked. He created us, gives us provision, takes care of us, and forgives our misdeeds even if we are not grateful to Him.

Although we can never thank Allah as He deserves, at least we should remind ourselves of His blessings and love every single time and say ‘Alhamdulillah’ sincerely.

9. Planting trees:
==================
The Holy Prophet said, “If a Muslim plants a tree or sows seeds, and then a bird, or a person or an animal eats from it, it is regarded as a sadaqah for him.” (Bukhari)

We need more trees for our earth today. If you can’t plant a tree, grow a flowering plant or at least keep a flowerpot in your room or balcony. As long as it keeps producing oxygen which is inhaled by living things around you, you will keep getting the reward for that. Watering and taking care of plants too, is a charitable deed.

10. Visiting the sick:
==================
Visiting the sick person is a beautiful Sunnah and one of the rights of Muslims upon each other. It is our social responsibility to visit if someone in our family or acquaintance is afflicted with sickness, and give them hope.

It causes them to feel better and not depressed. Holy Prophet PBUH said, “When the Muslim visits his (sick) Muslim brother, he is harvesting the fruits of Paradise until he returns.” (Muslim) Visiting the sick, asking them about their health, praying for them and motivating them is a charity.

11. Well-wishing:
==================
We should always wish well for others and never have ill feelings. As Muslims, we must love good for each other. Holy Prophet PBUH said, “None of you will believe until you love for your brother what you love for yourself.” (Bukhari)
• If someone asks for your advice, give them a good advice.
• Keep guiding each other towards good deeds and knowledge.
• If someone is engaged in some bad practice, try to keep them away from evil.
• Be gentle and easy-going towards others.
• Never be jealous or envious if Allah has blessed them, rather be happy in their happiness and share their griefs.

12. Good intentions:
==================
We all know that deeds depend upon the intentions. So always keep your intentions pure and good. The best intentions to do something is to do it for Allah’s sake, i.e. to obtain His pleasure.

Even if you are doing some everyday task, like cleaning the house or cooking, remind yourself that you are doing it to help your family members. If you are at your workplace, intend to do your job to earn halaal.

Every day, plan to do one good deed. Even if are not able to do it, you will be rewarded for your good intention. Holy Prophet PBUH said, “If somebody intends to do a good deed and he does not do it, then Allah will write for him a full good deed.” (Bukhari)

13. Remembering Allah:
==================
Allah is our Creator, Protector, and The Bestower of Mercy. So it is He we should always keep in mind and heart. Remembering Allah often makes us conscious of His being aware of our actions.

Allah says, “So remember Me, I will remember you” (2:152). When we remember Allah in good and bad times and turn to Him, He too, does not become oblivious to His servants’ needs and responds to our invocations.

Even when busy in our worldly affairs, we must remember Allah by way of adhkaar and observing the limits set by Him. Remembrance and consciousness of Allah is a worship.

14. Praying for others:
==================
Praying for someone for whom you can’t do anything is the best gift you can give. It shows your utmost love and sincerity when you invoke Allah regarding other people. Holy Prophet PBUH said, “The supplication of a Muslim for his brother in his absence will certainly be answered.

Every time he makes a supplication for his brother, the angel appointed for this particular task says: `Ameen! May it be for you, too.’” (Muslim)

Never forget your fellow Muslims in your supplications. Make dua for the living and the dead, those you know and those you don’t know. Pray for blessings and forgiveness for others, and make angels pray for you in return.

So, you can still do a lot! never underestimate even a kind word and start piling up good deeds today

The Belief of Sunni Muslims

edited_1473869049347.jpg

Glory be to Almighty Allah. Peace and blessings be our Master, the Prophet Muhammad (sall-allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam). Benedictions be over his pure Ahl al-Bait and over all his just and devoted companions (radi-Allahu ta’ala ‘anhum ajmain).

Of all the branches of Islam, two are by far the largest: the Shi’ah or the Shi’ites, partisans of Hazrat Ali (may Allah be pleased with him); and the Ahl al-Sunnah wa’l-jama’ah, people who follow the prophetic practices and the majority, popularly known as the Sunnis. Read the rest of this entry

Aqeedah [Creed] of the Ahle Sunnat wa Jamaat

wp-image-458455391.png

Imam Ahle Sunat Shah Ahmad Raza’s (may Allah be pleased with him) writings convey a sense of pessimism about the condition of Islam during his time, while urgently calling upon Muslims to reform their ways. Like most of the 19th century reformers in British India, he blamed his fellow Muslims, rather than others, for their current situation. He denounced the views of Sir Sayyid Ahmad Khan and his ‘modernist’ Aligarh school, and ulema such as the Ahle Hadis, the Deobandis, the Nadwat al-Ulema, and the Ahmadis. In addition the Sh’is came under attack and the Hindu reform movement of the Arya Samaj was also a concern.

Remembrance of Allah

Almost every person in the modern world is involved in some basic worldly activity like earning a living, going to school, eating, sleeping, and socializing.  Naturally, we forget Allah and the obligations due to Him.  When we forget Allah, this life and its worries become the central occupation of the human mind.  Desires run wild.  A person begins to ‘chase his shadow’, something he can never catch.  For many, money becomes the sole goal of life.  The more you make, the more you spend, the more you want.

Islam is a religion of peace – peace to humanity and one and all. It is a religion to lead mankind from the depths of darkness and ignorance towards the path of light and knowledge. The literal meaning of Islam, derived from the Arabic word Salaam, means peace. The word “Islam” has another root derivation – Slim – which means surrender or submission.

What’s gossiping?

Have you ever met someone guilty of cannibalism? Probably not, yet if many of us who gossiped were to go by any name – it would be this. This is the way backbiting is described in Islam and many of us know it.

Allah warns us: “O you who have believed, avoid much [negative] assumption. Indeed, some assumption is sin. And do not spy or backbite each other. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his brother when dead? You would detest it. And fear Allah ; indeed, Allah is Accepting of repentance and Merciful.” (Holy Quran 49: 12) Read the rest of this entry

In the Qur’an life in this world is an inseparable part of a continuum, a unified whole – life, death, life – which gives our life a context and relevance. In this context, the life of the individual is made meaningful and enriched inasmuch as it is full of ‘good works’. Life in this world leads to the afterlife, a belief which is fundamental in the Qur’an. The afterlife is not treated in the Qur’an in a separate chapter, or as something on its own, for its own sake, but always in relation to life in this world. Read the rest of this entry

Islam is salaam (peace) and tasleem (submission to the Divine). In Islam Peace is the standard, it is the principle, and each person of faith has the moral obligation to maintain peace, without compromising on justice and truth. Islam invites to the subul as-salaam (pathway of peace); peace of mind, peace of conscience, peace in the family and society, peace with one’s Creator and His creation. One of the attributes of the Divine is As-Salaam (The Source of Peace) and Muslim greeting universally, upon meeting and departing, is as-salamu ‘alaykum or “peace be unto you”. The final and ultimate reward for human endeavor is Paradise, referred to in the Qur’an as Dar-us-Salaam (Abode of Peace) Read the rest of this entry
