  • Narrated Abu Hurairah that the Messenger ﷺ said: “People should stop boasting about their fathers who have died, while they are but coals of the Hellfire, or they will be more humiliated with Allāh than the dung beetle who rolls dung with his nose. Indeed Allāh removed Jahiliyyah (pre-Islamic ignorance) from you, and its boasting about lineage. [Indeed a person is either] a pious believer, or a miserable sinner. And people are all the children of Adam, and Adam was [created] from dust.”

    3955: حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ بَشَّارٍ قَالَ: حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو عَامِرٍ العَقَدِيُّ قَالَ: حَدَّثَنَا هِشَامُ بْنُ سَعْدٍ، عَنْ سَعِيدٍ الْمَقْبُرِيِّ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ، قَالَ: «لَيَنْتَهِيَنَّ أَقْوَامٌ يَفْتَخِرُونَ بِآبَائِهِمُ الَّذِينَ مَاتُوا إِنَّمَا هُمْ فَحْمُ جَهَنَّمَ، أَوْ لَيَكُونُنَّ أَهْوَنَ عَلَى اللَّهِ مِنَ الجُعَلِ الَّذِي يُدَهْدِهُ الخِرَاءَ بِأَنْفِهِ، إِنَّ اللَّهَ أَذْهَبَ عَنْكُمْ عُبِّيَّةَ الجَاهِلِيَّةِ وَفَخْرَهَا بِالآبَاءِ، إِنَّمَا هُوَ مُؤْمِنٌ تَقِيٌّ وَفَاجِرٌ شَقِيٌّ، النَّاسُ كُلُّهُمْ بَنُو آدَمَ وَآدَمُ خُلِقَ مِنْ تُرَابٍ» وَفِي البَابِ عَنْ ابْنِ عُمَرَ، وَابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ: «وَهَذَا حَدِيثٌ حَسَنٌ»

  • Abu Nadrah reported: I heard the farewell sermon of the Messenger of Allāh ﷺ said: “O people, your Lord is one and your father Ādam is one. There is no virtue of an Arab over a non-Arab, nor a non-Arab over an Arab, and neither white skin over black skin nor black skin over white skin, except by taqwā (piety/righteousness). Have I not delivered the message?”

    21407: حَدَّثَنَا وَكِيعٌ، عَنْ أَبِي هِلَالٍ، عَنْ بَكْرٍ، عَنْ أَبِي ذَرٍّ، أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ لَهُ: «انْظُرْ، فَإِنَّكَ لَيْسَ بِخَيْرٍ مِنْ أَحْمَرَ وَلَا أَسْوَدَ إِلَّا أَنْ تَفْضُلَهُ بِتَقْوَى»

in conclusion

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا ادْخُلُوا فِي السِّلْمِ كَافَّةً وَلَا تَتَّبِعُوا خُطُوَاتِ الشَّيْطَانِ ۚ إِنَّهُ لَكُمْ عَدُوٌّ مُّبِينٌ - 2:208

O you who believe! Enter perfectly in Islam (by obeying all the rules and regulations of the Islamic religion) and follow not the footsteps of Shaitan (Satan). Verily! He is to you a plain enemy. (Surah al-Baqara 2:208)

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّا خَلَقْنَاكُم مِّن ذَكَرٍ وَأُنثَىٰ وَجَعَلْنَاكُمْ شُعُوبًا وَقَبَائِلَ لِتَعَارَفُوا ۚ إِنَّ أَكْرَمَكُمْ عِندَ اللَّهِ أَتْقَاكُمْ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ خَبِيرٌ - 49:13
O mankind! We have created you from a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know one another. Verily, the most honourable of you with Allah is that (believer) who has At-Taqwā. Verily, Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware. (Surah al-Hujarat 49:13)

fear Allāh, step into Islam completely and fully, and do not pick and choose which parts of Jāhiliyyah you want to keep and which parts of Islām you wish to implement. remember you, and the skin colour you feel you are better than were both created from dirt, and one piece of dirt is not better than another piece of dirt.

Foodie Friday: Stuffed Bell Peppers

Serves: 6

Ingredients: 
-6 large red bell peppers
-1 lb ground beef
-½ cup onion, chopped
-1 can tomatoes, diced
-½ cup rice (any kind you prefer - my mom uses Spanish rice!)
-1 cup water
-Salt
-1 tsp BBQ sauce
-1 cup shredded cheese, plus some for topping (any melty kind - Mom usually used shredded Mexican blend)
-Pepper
-Optional: diced jalapeno pepper (my family never ate it like this on account of the jalapeno reacting rather negatively for all of us, but my friends love it!)

1) Get a large pot of water on heat to boil. While you wait for it to boil, get your rice started and preheat your oven to 350 degrees (Fahrenheit)

2) Cut off the tops of the bell peppers and remove the stem. Reserve the red part, and discard the seeds and membranes from inside the peppers.

3) Dice the reserved parts of the pepper caps.

4) In a large sauce pan or skillet, cook the ground beef, diced pepper, and onions, until meat is browned and the veggies are tender.

5) Drain off the excess fat and add the drained tomatoes, BBQ sauce, salt, and pepper.

6) Get some cold water ready. Put the bell peppers into the boiling water and allow them to cook for 2-5 minutes. Then immediately transfer them into the cold water to halt the cooking process. This will blanch them and allow them to more easily hold the filling while baking.

7) Mix rice and cheese into the beef mixture. Portion out into the bell peppers and arrange on a baking dish. Bake for 25 minutes, add the cheese topping, and finish up with five more minutes of baking.

Serve as a main alone, or with tortilla or corn chips!

Magical Ingredient

As I was growing up, I could always tell when my mom was going to make stuffed bell peppers for dinner. The refrigerator would be filled with peppers, onions, and beef, and my dad would be giddy with excitement. With so much focus on food in our family, the dinner selection often influenced how the day would go. In all honesty, as a kid I wasn’t a fan of the bell peppers. But as is usual, my palate changed as I grew up, and I found myself loving bell peppers.

But it wasn’t really the peppers that would get the house excited. It was the beef. We ate a lot of chicken and pork, but for one or two days of the week, we broke out the beef - which was always something we loved. Given our Irish heritage, this comes to me as no surprise. After all, beef and cattle had a prominent place in Irish Celtic lore.

I’ve mentioned in previous Foodie Friday articles, meat isn’t usually the main feature of kitchen witch articles. This makes some sense, as many witches shy away from meats and focus on the magical properties of plants either because of personal dietary choices or so as to avoid any issues with karmic law. However, as not all witches adhere to a karmic law, and many still consume meat and animal products, I feel there is a need to acknowledge the magic meat can bring to a dish.

Beef is one of those meats that can be somewhat polarizing due to cultural influence. In plenty of European cultures, consumption of beef was part of life, but in Hinduism, consuming beef is taboo - something I’ll get into later.

In general, cattle represent prosperity and health. After all, in some cultures, the survival of livestock was a matter of life and death. This dependency on domesticated meat sources elevated cattle to a near-sacred level. War and skirmishes in Celtic Ireland, for example, were usually waged over the acquisition of cattle and grazing land. An excellent example of this is  Táin Bó Cúailnge - The Cattle Raid of Cooley. 

In this epic, two rulers - Ailill and Medb - compare each others’ wealth (they were a somewhat competitive married couple). They are evenly matched in wealth with one exception: Ailill has in his possession a particularly fertile bull. This bull had been born to Medb’s herd, but scorned being owned by a woman. As a result, he had transferred himself over to Ailill’s herd. In order to equal the wealth, Medb conspires to rent an equally fertile bull from Cooley for a year. When it’s revealed that she would have taken the bull by force if the deal hadn’t been struck, war is declared.

To sum up a rather drawn out epic, the story ends up being about the hero Cu Chulainn defending Cooley. And who else but the Morrigan appears to him at several points in the story, once as a heifer and once as an old woman with a three-legged cow. 

The entire story revolves around cattle and ownership of cattle!

Meanwhile, in Norse mythology, cattle are important from the very beginning, in which the cow Audhumbla uncovered the first of the Aesir gods by licking salt from ice. Nerthus is a Vanir goddess who was attributed to fertility and the drawing of a wagon by heifers.

The significance of cattle wasn’t limited to Northern Europe. In Judaism, the Torah describes the ritual sacrifice of an unblemished red cow. It would then be made into a burnt offering, whose ashes would be added to water used in ritual purification of a person who had come in contact with a human corpse. Unlike shellfish, beef is kosher in Judaism provided the cow is slaughtered and blessed through the shechita ritual and served separate from any dairy.

This bears resemblance to a similar practice of ritual slaughter and blessing of cattle for consumption in Islam. In fact in a passage from the second surah of the Quran (Al-Baqara 67-73), a story describes some conflict between the Israelites regarding the proper cow to be sacrificed  in order to resurrect a murdered man.

In ancient Egypt, the cow was sacred to Hathor, who was a goddess of fertility, feminine love, joy, and motherhood.

In Hinduism, cattle has a rather significant role, being used as a symbol for the dawn and sometimes depicted listening to Krishna’s music. While the slaughter and consumption of meat isn’t observed in all sects of Hinduism, some condemn the killing of bipeds and quadrupeds and therefore pursue vegetarianism so as to abstain from slaughter. As I’d mentioned, however, not all Hindus practice vegetarianism - in Shaktism, cattle is still sometimes sacrificed and consumed during certain rituals and holidays.

Even Zoroastrianism holds the cow to be sacred, as the soul of the earth is also described as “the spirit of the cow.” And at one point, Zoroastrianism hailed cow urine as being a powerful panacea for all moral and bodily sin. Treatment of the cow was to not be abusive, though the meat could be consumed if done so properly.

Ultimately, what we see as an underlying theme in all of these cultures and religions is that the cow is a symbol for the earth and for prosperity and health. It was equally attributed to wealth, and was the very core of life in some areas. This carries over into modern witchcraft, in which the cow continues to be a symbol of fertility and prosperity.

In kitchen witchery, we can focus on these properties in our cooking, turning a meal into a spell for health, love, fertility, and wealth. These very same properties are shared with dairy products, which could mean that that cheeseburger you had for lunch is a double-whammy of love and prosperity!

As you cook up your next beef dish, take into account the long history and religious significance the cow has had, and take a moment to make use of that magic!

May all your meals be blessed! )O(

وَوَصَّىٰ بِهَا إِبْرَاهِيمُ بَنِيهِ وَيَعْقُوبُ يَا بَنِيَّ إِنَّ اللَّهَ اصْطَفَىٰ لَكُمُ الدِّينَ فَلَا تَمُوتُنَّ إِلَّا وَأَنتُم مُّسْلِمُونَ

And the same did Ibrahim enjoin on his sons and (so did) Yaqoub. O my sons! surely Allah has chosen for you (this) faith, therefore die not unless you are Muslims.
—  Surah Al-Baqara, Verse 132:

The more important isn’t how you begun but how you will finish. Don’t worry if you did a lot of sins than today. Just repent sincerely to Allah. He is Al Ghafur.
And if you remember your past one day, don’t be sad but be thankful that Allah choose you to be a repented muslim.

إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُحِبُّ التَّوّٰبِينَ وَيُحِبُّ الْمُتَطَهِّرِينَ

Indeed, Allah loves those who are constantly repentant and loves those who purify themselves.“

(Al-Baqara: Verse 222)

Today Hujjaaj will start gathering in Arafat, this is the 2nd step of Hajj.

May Allaah make easy their Hajj & accept their Hajj.

Ameen A white sea of the faithful flowed to the plains of Arafat under cold, breezy and overcast conditions as dawn broke on the second day of the five-day pilgrimage. Waves of men in seamless white robes and women in flowing overalls joined voices in a crescendo chanting “Labbaik Allahumma Labbaik” (Here I am O Allah, answering your call). The Messenger of Allah (salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam) said: “ الحج عرفة “ or “Hajj is Arafah“. The Arabic text implies a very important concept of the meaning of Hajj. This short statement means that the whole hajj and its validity is confined in the actual day of Arafahi.e. Hajj becomes valid only when the day of Arafah is observed and witnessed by those who undertake the journey, the pilgrims. Regardless how long the hujjaaj stay in Makkah, if they missed that single day, they have then missed the whole Hajj.

The name Arafah عَرَفَة was mentioned in many ahadith such as hadith of the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam): “ الحج عرفة “ or Hajj is Arafah (reported by Imam Ahmad and the four sunan). The name Arafat was mentioned in Surat al-Baqara 2:198

لَيْسَ عَلَيْكُمْ جُنَاحٌ أَنْ تَبْتَغُوا فَضْلًا مِنْ رَبِّكُمْ ۚ فَإِذَا أَفَضْتُمْ مِنْ عَرَفَاتٍ فَاذْكُرُوا اللَّهَ عِنْدَ الْمَشْعَرِ الْحَرَامِ ۖ وَاذْكُرُوهُ كَمَا هَدَاكُمْ وَإِنْ كُنْتُمْ مِنْ قَبْلِهِ لَمِنَ الضَّالِّينَ

“It is no crime in you if ye seek of the bounty of your Lord (during pilgrimage). Then when ye pour down from (Mount) Arafaat, celebrate the praises of Allah at the Sacred Monument, and celebrate His praises as He has directed you, even though, before this, ye went astray”

Here Hujjaaj have to pray Dhuhr and Asr prayer combined and shortened, each performed in units of two rak’ah with one adhan and two Iqamas.

Sorry for the late reply. I had to think about some Quran verses that personally speak volumes to me. It’s all about reading the Quran for one’s self to find peace and contentment in it. This is the first thing you should recommend your friends.

I recommend Surah Taha, Surah Yusuf, Surah Rahman, Surah Duha and Al-Inshirah

As to the verses. Many ayat behold a lot of tranquility for the believers. Some might not speak immediately to someone, but once you understand them you really feel the love of Allah. Please note that every verse has also a context it is in. So please do consider also reading the whole surah of the Tafsir for them. There’s a lot of wisdom inside. (There are more than I am able to list and they are not in some sort of order)

تَنزِيلًا مِّمَّنْ خَلَقَ الْأَرْضَ وَالسَّمَاوَاتِ الْعُلَى

A revelation from Him Who created the earth and the high heavens.

الرَّحْمَٰنُ عَلَى الْعَرْشِ اسْتَوَىٰ

The Beneficent Allah is firm in power.

لَهُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَا وَمَا تَحْتَ الثَّرَىٰ

His is what is in the heavens and what is in the earth and what is between them two and what is beneath the ground.

وَإِن تَجْهَرْ بِالْقَوْلِ فَإِنَّهُ يَعْلَمُ السِّرَّ وَأَخْفَى

And if you utter the saying aloud, then surely He knows the secret, and what is yet more hidden.

اللَّهُ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ لَهُ الْأَسْمَاءُ الْحُسْنَىٰ

Allah– there is no god but He; His are the very best names.

Hasten to forgiveness from your Lord and to a garden the extensiveness of which is as the extensiveness of the heaven and the earth; it is prepared for those who believe in Allah and His apostles; that is the grace of Allah: He gives it to whom He pleases, and Allah is the Lord of mighty grace.

No evil befalls on the earth nor in your own souls, but it is in a book before We bring it into existence; surely that is easy to Allah


لِّكَيْلَا تَأْسَوْا عَلَىٰ مَا فَاتَكُمْ وَلَا تَفْرَحُوا بِمَا آتَاكُمْ وَاللَّهُ لَا يُحِبُّ كُلَّ مُخْتَالٍ فَخُورٍ

So that you may not grieve for what has escaped you, nor be exultant at what He has given you; and Allah does not love any arrogant boaster:

——


Surah At-Taghabun, Verse 11:
مَا أَصَابَ مِن مُّصِيبَةٍ إِلَّا بِإِذْنِ اللَّهِ وَمَن يُؤْمِن بِاللَّهِ يَهْدِ قَلْبَهُ وَاللَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمٌ

No affliction comes about but by Allah’s permission; and whoever believes in Allah, He guides aright his heart; and Allah is Cognizant of all things

وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الْإِنسَانَ وَنَعْلَمُ مَا تُوَسْوِسُ بِهِ نَفْسُهُ وَنَحْنُ أَقْرَبُ إِلَيْهِ مِنْ حَبْلِ الْوَرِيدِ

(16) And certainly We created man, and We know what his mind suggests to him, and We are nearer to him than his life-vein.

إِذْ يَتَلَقَّى الْمُتَلَقِّيَانِ عَنِ الْيَمِينِ وَعَنِ الشِّمَالِ قَعِيدٌ

(17) When the two receivers receive, sitting on the right and on the left.

مَّا يَلْفِظُ مِن قَوْلٍ إِلَّا لَدَيْهِ رَقِيبٌ عَتِيدٌ

(18) He utters not a word but there is by him a watcher at hand.

إِنَّ بَطْشَ رَبِّكَ لَشَدِيدٌ

(12) Surely the might of your Lord is great.

إِنَّهُ هُوَ يُبْدِئُ وَيُعِيدُ

(13) Surely He it is Who originates and reproduces,

وَهُوَ الْغَفُورُ الْوَدُودُ

(14) And He is the Forgiving, the Loving,

ذُو الْعَرْشِ الْمَجِيدُ

(15) Lord of the Arsh, the Glorious,

فَعَّالٌ لِّمَا يُرِيدُ

(16) The great doer of what He will.

Say: O my servants! who have acted extravagantly against their own souls, do not despair of the mercy of Allah; surely Allah forgives the faults altogether; surely He is the Forgiving the Merciful

هُوَ الَّذِي يُصَلِّي عَلَيْكُمْ وَمَلَائِكَتُهُ لِيُخْرِجَكُم مِّنَ الظُّلُمَاتِ إِلَى النُّورِ وَكَانَ بِالْمُؤْمِنِينَ رَحِيمًا

أَمْ حَسِبْتُمْ أَن تَدْخُلُوا الْجَنَّةَ وَلَمَّا يَأْتِكُم مَّثَلُ الَّذِينَ خَلَوْا مِن قَبْلِكُم مَّسَّتْهُمُ الْبَأْسَاءُ وَالضَّرَّاءُ وَزُلْزِلُوا حَتَّىٰ يَقُولَ الرَّسُولُ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مَعَهُ مَتَىٰ نَصْرُ اللَّهِ أَلَا إِنَّ نَصْرَ اللَّهِ قَرِيبٌ

Or do you think that you would enter the garden while yet the state of those who have passed away before you has not come upon you; distress and affliction befell them and they were shaken violently, so that the Apostle and those who believed with him said: When will the help of Allah come? Now surely the help of Allah is nigh!

(This is) Allah’s promise! Allah will not fail His promise, but most people do not know.

Remember, He tells us in the Quran of this…

“But it may happen that you hate a thing which is good for you, and it may happen that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows, you know not.”

{Surah Al Baqara 2: Verse 216}

Holy Qur'an: Al-Baqara (2:216)

ﻭَﻋَﺴَﻰٰ ﺃَﻥْ ﺗَﻜْﺮَﻫُﻮا ﺷَﻴْﺌًﺎ ﻭَﻫُﻮَ ﺧَﻴْﺮٌ ﻟَﻜُﻢْ ﻭَﻋَﺴَﻰٰ ﺃَﻥْ ﺗُﺤِﺒُّﻮا ﺷَﻴْﺌًﺎ ﻭَﻫُﻮَ ﺷَﺮٌّ ﻟَﻜُﻢْ ﻭَاﻟﻠَّﻪُ ﻳَﻌْﻠَﻢُ ﻭَﺃَﻧْﺘُﻢْ ﻻَ ﺗَﻌْﻠَﻤُﻮﻥَ

But perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not.

أَعُوذُ بِاللَّهِ أَنْ أَكُونَ مِنَ الْجَاهِلِينَ 

“I seek refuge in Allah from being among the ignorant.”

Surah 2. Al-Baqara, Ayah 67

Surah Al-Baqara, Verse 249:

Allah, said: “How oft, by Allah’s will, Hath a small force vanquished a big one? Allah is with those who steadfastly persevere.”
