  • Want to know what a believer constant weapon is?

    This is the believer’s constant weapon. He asks his Lord to rid him of evils, problems and bad characteristics, and he seeks refuge with Allah (SWT) from falling into the pit of kufr and wrongdoing caused by anger, because one of the three qualities which will save a person from Hellfire is being just and fair both at times of contentment and at times of anger. (Saheeh al-Jaami’, 3039). One of the du’aa’s of the Prophet (SAW) was:

    (O Allah, by Your knowledge of the Unseen and Your power over all creation, keep me alive so long as You know life is good for me, and bring about my death when you know death is good for me. O Allah, I ask You to make me fear You in secret and in the open, I ask You to make me speak sincerely at times of contentment and at times of anger, I ask You to make me be moderate in poverty and in wealth, I ask You for a blessing that does not end, contentment that never ceases, and for acceptance of Your decree. I ask You for a good life after death, and I ask You for the joy of looking upon Your face and the longing to meet You, with no harmful adversity or misleading trial (fitnah). O Allah, adorn us with the beauty of faith, guide us and let us be a means of guidance for others).” (Reported by al-Nisaa’i in al-Sunan, 3/55; and by al-Haakim. Saheeh al-Jaami’, 1301).

  • Did Moses, Noah,Joseph,David etc died with their original sin/ without salvation?

    Since the death of Jesus on the cross is the centre of all Christian theology. All statements about God, about creation, about sin and death have their focal point in the crucified Christ. All christians statements about history, about church, about faith and sanctification, about the future and about hope stem from the crucified christ. Blood for salvation, no blood no salvation.

    What will happen to all their good deeds?

  • Do you know how to safeguard your tongue?

    1. Do not speak without thinking. You should only speak once you have pondered over what you wish to say and you are convinced that it will not be badly received.

    2. It is a sin to address a person or speak of him in the following terms: "he has no îmân", "may Allah's punishment, curse, or anger descend on a certain person", "may he enter hell", etc. It is a sin to speak in this manner irrespective of whether one is addressing a human or an animal. If the person who has been addressed in this manner does not deserve such remarks, all these curses will actually descend on the person who uttered them.

    3. If anyone addresses you in this useless manner, you have the right to reply in the same way. However, you cannot exceed what that person says. If you exceed, you will be committing a sin.

    4. Do not be two-faced whereby you "play according to the tune" of one person when you are in his company, and according to the "tune" of another person when in the latter's company.

    5. Don't ever back-bite nor should you listen to such back-biting and tale-bearing.

    6. Never ever speak a lie.

    7. Do not praise a person directly nor should you exaggerate in praising him in his absence.

    8. Don't ever involve yourself in ghîbah. Ghîbah means speaking in the absence of a person in such a way that if he were to hear it, he would be grieved. This is irrespective of whether what you say is the truth or not. If what you say is false, it is regarded as slander or defamation. This is even more sinful.

    9. Do not argue with a person. Do not try to give precedence to what you have to say.

    10. Do not laugh excessively as this causes the illumination of the heart (and countenance) to disappear.

    11. If you have made ghîbah of a person, seek his forgiveness. If you are unable to do so, make du‘â-e-maghfirah on his behalf. In doing this, there is hope that you will be forgiven on the day of judgement.

    12. Do not make false promises.

    13. Do not laugh in such a way that the other person feels insulted or offended.

    14. Do not be boastful of something that you own or a quality which you possess.

    15. Do not occupy yourself with poems and poetry. However, if the subject matter is not contrary to the Sharî‘ah and you occasionally quote a few lines when making du‘â or when advising someone, there is no harm in this.

    16. Do not mention things that you hear from here and there because the majority of such things are false

  • Care for more of the creed?

    Return unto your Lord, well pleased, well pleasing!

    Irji’I ila Rabbi-ki radiyatan mardiyya. (89:28,29)

    Can you see yourself content with the roses of the Gardens of Paradise, or satisfied with the silken garments of the Orchard? How could Majnun be happy with anything less than Layla in full bloom? How could the lovers relax in comfort, without the fragrant scents of ambergris?

    Bodies have been melted in the realization of worshipful servitude. How could they not rejoice in the seats of togetherness [‘indiyya]. Eyes have stayed sleepless through the gloomy nights. How could they not delight in the witnessing of intimate friendship? Hearts have been tormented by amorous yearnings. How could they fail to drink from the pure juicy wine? Spirits have been imprisoned in sensory forms. How could they not roam freely in the sacred meadows, graze in their lofty pastures, drink from their refreshing springs, and put an end to any lingering trace of longing for relief from that cause of complaint? The judge of the ardent lovers will make a public appearance, and settle that case.

    When they are addressed at the meeting with their Master [Mawla], He will begin by offering them the greeting [tahiyya], then He will instruct them to enter the Gardens of Eden, but they will reject them with disdain. They will swear that they looked for nothing apart from Him, that they had no intention of seeking anything apart from Him, and that they would not be content with anything existing in the universe. They will swear that their objectives were not inferior, so they had not forsaken the pleasure of life except to advance therefrom, through the link that is utterly superior.

    The wine-director will offer them a cup, chosen from his very best, containing a salutary drink. As it passed around among the intimate companions, it will be welcomed in the early morning hours and in the evening. It will add to their comfort and their ardent longing for the radiant lights of His magnificent appearance.

    By your Truth, if you do not allow and eye to see Your Beauty [Jamal], that is a miserable eye.

    The ardent lovers have come to experience, through Your goodness, on account of longing for You, a gentle kindness for the common people. Hearts melt in yearning for You, and no trace of passionate desire remains therein.

    If I decide, but You do not fulfill my purpose, I am subject to direction from Your love. I shall not be despairing at the meeting, O my God, that Your good graces will erase the sinful error.

    How could there be denial, O my brethren, when, in the early morning hours, there are Lordly moments [awqat Rabbaniyya], heavenly indications, and angelic breezes? The proof of the truthfulness of this matter is that the birds in the trees are intoning the Davidian psalms [alhan Dawudiyya], the divergent streams are splashing in the fertile meadows, and the branches are dancing in fine suits of silk brocade from the Garden of Paradise. All of that is done in submissive obedience, and as an acknowledgement of His Uniqueness [Wahdaniyya].

    Yes indeed, O people of love, the Lord of Truth reveals Himself in the time before dawn, and He issues the invitation: “Is there anyone ready to repent, that I may relent toward him with a satisfactory acceptance? Is there anyone seeking forgiveness, that I may forgive him his sinful errors entirely? Is there anyone begging for charity, that I may grant him blessings and gifts in abundance?”

    Yes indeed, once the spirits are pure, they will be in splendor, radiant and shining. They will be equally balanced in their spiritual states and all disaster will be meaningless to them. Without a doubt, the scent of their tears will be fragrant on all the horizons.

    Through their patient endurance of some separation, they have earned the right of attainment to the exalted ranks. The authenticity of their sayings [ahadith], concerning the degrees of the lovers, is established by reliable transmission [musnada marwiyya]. They pass without question, and their needs are fully met.

    The gift of love had come to be crystal clear. How well it deserves to be celebrated in brilliant rhymes [qawafi], and in a splendid creed [‘aqida], based on the principles of the Hanafi, Shafi’i, Maliki, and Hanbali schools [usul madhahib al-Hanafiyya wa’sh-Shafi’iyya wa’l-Malikyya wa’l-Hanbaliyya]!

    May Allah (Exalted is He) protect me, and all of you, from those who split apart and go astray, as arrows stray from their target. May He include me, and all of you, among those for whom there are lofty halls, with lofty halls built above them.

    May Allah bless our master Muhammad, the noblest of humankind, and his family and his Companions. May He single them out for the most noble salutation, and may He grant them abundant peace, constantly renewed in endless succession, every morning and evening.

    Amin, and again Amin.

  • Do you know the creed?

    In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful:

    Praise be to Allah, the One who modeled the mode [kayyafa’l kaif], though He is completely free from modality [kaifiyya];

    And has localized locality [ayyana ‘l-ain], though He utterly transcends location [ainiyya];

    And exists [wujida] in every place, though He is far removed from circumstantiality [zarfiyya];

    And makes Himself present with [hadara ‘inda] every thing, though He is far exalted above “withness” [‘indiyya].

    He is the First of everything, and there is no posteriority [akhiriyya] applicable to Him.

    If you say “where [aina]? ”, you are imposing location [ainiyya] on Him.

    If you say: “how [kaifa]?”, you seek Him through modality [kaifiyya].

    If you say: “when [mataa]? ”, you are besetting Him with temporality [waqtiyya].

    If you say “He is not [laisa],” you are excluding Him from being [kawniyya].

    If you say “if [law]”, you are confronting Him with deficiency [naqsiyya].

    If you say “why [lima]?”, you are disputing with Him over sovereignty [malakutiyya].

    Glory be to Him and Exalted is He!

    He is not preceded by precedence [qabliyya]. He is not superseded by subsequence [ba’diyya]. He cannot be compared by likeness [mithliyya]. He cannot be matched by comparability [shakliyya]. He is not flawed by matrimonial conjugality [zawjiyya]. He is not known by corporeality [jismiyya].

    Glory be to Him and Exalted is He!

    If He were a tangible object [shakhs], He would be known in terms of quantity [kammiyya].

    If He were a physical body (jism), He would consist of elements combined in structure [binya], but He is Singular [Wahid], in refutation of structurality [banawiyya].

    He is Eternal [Samad], in refutation of idolatry [wathaniyya].

    There is nothing similar to Him, in rejection of [the anthropomorphism] of the Hashwiyya.

    There is nothing comparable to Him, in refutation of those who maintain the heresy of characterization [wasfiyya].

    No mover moves, in good or evil, in private or in public, on land or at sea, except by His Will, in refutation of the Qadariyya.

    His Power [Qudra] admits no comparison, and His Wisdom [Hikma] has no final limit, in denial of the Hudhaliyya.

    His rights are those that are obligatory [huququ-hu ‘l wajiba], and His proof is that which is effective [hujjatu-hu ‘l baligha]. No one is entitled to claim any right over Him, contrary to the precept of the Nazzamiyya.

    He is Just [‘Adil] and does no injustice in His judgments. He is Truthful [Sadiq] and does no injustice in His judgments. He is Truthful [Sadiq] and does not go back on what He makes known.

    He is a speaker [Mutakallim] who utters a speech that is infinitely pre-existent, sempiternal [kalam qadim azali], not as one who creates his speech.

    He has sent down the Qur’an and He has made it impossible for the eloquent linguists to rearrange it, thereby disproving the arguments of the Muradiyya.

    Our Lord condones faults and forgives sins, for those who repent. Even if a man returns to his sin, that which is past will absolutely not return to the human being.

    Our Lord is completely free from falsity [zaif] and far removed from tyranny [haif].

    We also believe that He has reconciled the hearts of the believers and that He has caused the unbelievers to go astray, in refutation of the Hishamiyya.

    We also believe that the sinners [fussaq] of this Community [Umma] are better than the Jews, the Christians and the Magians, in refutation of the Ja’fariyya.

    We affirm that He sees Himself, and sees what is other than Himself and that He is One who hears [Sami’] every call, One who sees [Basir] every secrecy, in refutation of the Ka’biyya.

    He has created His creatures in a most excellent natural constitution [fitra], and, after He has returned them through extinction in the darkness of the grave, He will restore them to the condition He first produced them, in refutation of the Dahriyya.

    Then, when He has gathered them for the Day of His Reckoning, He will manifest Himself to His dear friends, so they will witness Him directly with the faculty of sight. He will be visible like the moon, and He will be veiled from none but those who deny the vision [of Him], such as the Mu’tazila. How could He be veiled from His dear friends, or make them stop before His screen, when His sempiternal, infinitely pre-existent promises have already been set forth?

  • Do you know superiority of one who granted a grace period to an insolvent?

    ) Narrated Abu Mas'ud (: Allah's Messenger (pbuh) said: A man from among

    those who were before you was called to account by Allah on the Day of

    Resurrection. No good was found in his account except that he, used to mix

    with people and being a rich man, used to lend money to the people and order

    his servants to let off the men who are unable to repay debt. The Prophet

    (pbuh) said: Allah (swt) said to the angels: We are worthier than him of

    that generosity. So let him off (enter Paradise).

    (This Hadith is sound and related by Muslim.)

    2) Narrated Abu Huraira Allah's Messenger (pbuh) said: A man never did good

    deeds. Rather, he used to lend (money) the people and advise his servants:

    Take from the solvent and leave the insolvent and forgive him. Perhaps Allah

    may forgive us. When he died, Allah (swt) asked him: Did you ever do

    anything good? He replied: No, but I had a servant and I used to lend people

    money. Whenever I sent him out to recover the loans, I advised him: Accept

    from the solvent and leave the one who is unable to repay (i.e. excuse him).

    May Allah forgives us. then Allah The Exalted remarked: I have forgiven you.

  • Do you know that backbiting is not only spoken by words?

    Brothers and sisters! Backbiting is not only restricted to the tongue. Be aware that backbiting by the tongue was prohibited because you inform others of the defects of your brother and describe him with what he dislikes. Therefore, intimation is just like declaration, to describe the defect by an action is like saying it; also a wink, signal, hint, nod, any movement or writing are forms of backbiting and they are Haraam (prohibited). 'aishah said: "A woman came in our house. When she left I moved my hands indicating that she was short. The Prophet (pbuh) said, 'You have backbitten her.'" (Related by Abu Dawood and Ahmad)

    To imitate someone's walk - if he limps - would be another example. This is Gheebah, indeed it is worse than Gheebah because it is much clearer and more readily understood. When Allah's Messenger (pbuh) saw 'aishah imitating a woman, he is reported to have said:

    "I would not like to imitate anybody, even if I were given such-and-such." (Related by Abu Dawood, Tirmidhi and Ahmad)

    Gheebah can also be through writing, for the pen is one of two tongues. This is, my brothers, the case when the person tells the truth about others. It is Gheebah and he is Mughtaab, a backbiter. By doing this he disobeys his Lord and he eats the flesh of his brother. But if he is lying then he combines Gheebah and Kidhib (lying).

    Mu'adh Bin Jabal ( said: A man was mentioned in the presence of Allah's Messenger (pbuh). The people said, "how lazy he is!" Allah's Messenger (pbuh) said:

    "You have backbitten your brother." They said, "O Allah's Messenger, we said what is true about him." He said, "If what you have said was true then this was Gheebah, and if it was not true, then it is Buhtaan (slander)." Al-Hasan said:

    "When people mention others they may commit one of these three: Gheebah, buhtaan and Ifk, and all are in the Book of Allah. Gheebah is to say what is true about a person. Buhtaan is to say what is not true about a person. And Ifk is to say what was conveyed to you." Allah's Messenger (pbuh) said:

    "All things belonging to a Muslim are unlawful for another Muslim: his blood, his property and his honor." (Muslim, Ahmad and Bayhaqi) Gheebah deals with honor and Allah has combined honor with property and blood.

  • Do you know how to increase your faith(Imaan) ?

    Recite and ponder on the meanings of the Quran. Tranquility then descends and our hearts become soft. To get optimum benefit, remind yourself that Allah is speaking to you. People are described in different categories in the Quran; think of which one you find yourself in.

    >Realize the greatness of Allah. Everything is under His control. There are signs in everything we see that points us to His greatness. Everything happens according to His permission. Allah keeps track and looks after everything, even a black ant on a black rock on a black moonless night.

    >Make an effort to gain knowledge, for at least the basic things in daily life e.g. how to make wudu properly. Know the meanings behind Allah's names and attributes. People who have taqwa are those who have knowledge.

    >Attend gatherings where Allah is remembered. In such gatherings we are surrounded by angels.

    >We have to increase our good deeds. One good deed leads to another good deed. Allah will make the way easy for someone who gives charity and also make it easy for him or her to do good deeds. Good deeds must be done continuously, not in spurts.

    >We must fear the miserable end to our lives; the remembrance of death is the destroyer of pleasures.

    >Remember the different levels of akhirah, for instance when we are put in our graves, when we are judged, whether we will be in paradise or hell.

    >Make dua, realize that we need Allah. Be humble. Don't covet material things in this life.

    >Our love for Subhana Wa Ta'Ala must be shown in actions. We must hope Allah will accept our prayers, and be in constant fear that we do wrong. At night before going to sleep, we must think about what good we did during that day.

    >Realize the effects of sins and disobedience- one's imaan is increased with good deeds and our imaan is decreased by bad deeds. Everything that happens is because Allah wanted it. When calamity befalls us- it is also from Allah. It is a direct result of our disobedience to Allah

    But when Muslimah wears a Hijab they prevent her from entering her university!

    When a child dedicates himself to a subject he has potentials.

    But when he dedicates himself to Islam he is considered hopeless!

    When a Christian or a Jew kills someone his religion is not mentioned

    But when Muslim is charged with a crime, it is Islam that goes to trial!

    When someone sacrfices himself to keep others alive, he is noble and all respect him.

    But when a Palestinian does that to save his son from being killed, his brother's arm being broken, his mother being raped, his home being destroyed, and his mosque being violated -- He gets the title of a terrorist! Why? Because he is a Muslim!

    Whenever there is a trouble we try to find and solution to it and generally accept any solution?

    But if the solution lies in Islam, we refuse to take a look at it.

    When someone else drives a car in a bad way no one blames him.

    But when any Muslim makes the same mistake - people say "Islam is the reason"!

    Without looking to the traditions of Islam, people believe what the newspapers say.

    But question is what the Quran says!

  • If there's freedom of religion why are christians more concern with the affairs of muslims?

    Considering the fact that we are suppose to respect one another religious believe. Why is christian woman more concern for the liberation of the muslim woman, when the muslim women herself does not feel oppressed?

    Why is the society so critical about the way a muslim woman dresses if it is acceptable for the non-muslim to dress anyhow she likes.

    why is it that if a muslim woman stays at home to take care of my family, she is considered to be enslaved and when a non muslim woman does the same she is considered to be making sacrifice for the family?

    Why is it that christians makes so much noise on the islamic legal system when the laws are only applicable to the muslims?

    Could it not have been better if the pope addressed the issues of gay ordinations/ same sex marriages and other vices that have direct effect to the church than going back to archieves to dung out journals that are considered imflammatory to the muslims?

  • Why do Christians hate the Quran so much?

    Considering that fact the Quran did not speak anything bad about Jesus(pbuh) or his mother, in fact they are addressed with the sublimest form of language.

  • How many of you know the definition of terrorism or are you just following the media definitions?

    Terrorism had been defined by Oxford advance Learner's Dictionary as the use of voilent action in order to achieve political aim or to forcea government to act. It has no religious connotation, why dont we address the issue of the people that are aggrieved even if they are muslims instead labelling them names(case of giving a Dog a bad name in order to hang it). Can we be right if we call these terrorist organisations Christians or Jewish?
