Do you know what is better than charity, fasting and prayer? It is keeping peace and good relations between people, as quarrels and bad feelings destroy mankind. - Messenger Muhammad, peace be upon him <3
If anyone travels on a road in search of knowledge, Allah will cause him to travel on one of the roads of Paradise. The angels will lower their wings in their great pleasure with one who seeks knowledge. The inhabitants of the heavens and the Earth and (even) the fish in the deep waters will ask forgiveness for the learned man. The superiority of the learned over the devout is like that of the moon, on the night when it is full, over the rest of the stars. The learned are the heirs of the Prophets, and the Prophets leave (no monetary inheritance), they leave only knowledge, and he who takes it takes an abundant portion.
The Messenger Muhammad (sal Allahu ‘alayhi wa salam) said: “Some peoples will come on the Day of Judgement and their Imaan will be outstanding, it’s light will shine from their chests and from their right hands. So it will be said to them, 'glad tidings for you today, Assalaamu alaykum and goodness for you, enter into it (Jannah) forever!’ So the angels and the Prophets will be jealous of the love of Allah for them.”
So the Sahabah asked, ’ who are they O Messenger of Allah?’
He (saw) replied, “They are not from us and they are not from you. You are my companions but they are my beloved. They will come after you and will find the book (the Qur'an) made redundant by the people, and a Sunnah which has been killed by them. So they will grab hold of the book and the Sunnah and revive them.
So they will read them and teach them (the Qur'an and the Sunnah) to the people and they will experience in that path a punishment more severe and more ugly than what you (O Sahabah) have experienced. Indeed, the Imaan of one of them is equivalent to the Imaan of forty of you. The Shaheed of one of them is equivalent to forty of your Shuhadaa’. Because you found a helper towards the truth (the Prophet [saw]) and they will find no helper towards the truth. So they will be surrounded by tyrant rulers in every place, and they will be in the surroundings of Bayt ul-Maqdis (al-Quds). The Nussrah (victorious material support) of Allah will come to them, and they will have the honour of it on their hands.”
Then he (saw) said “O Allah give them the Nussrah and make them my close friends in Jannah.” [Reported by Ahmed #17561, chain #77. Hasan according to Ibn Hajar]
Prepare for Ramadan. It’s a long text but it is so worth reading it.
The Messenger of Allah, Muhammad, may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him, has said in a hadith: “Get to know Allah in good times, and he will get to know you in difficult times.” [Sahîh Al-Jama ’]. The meaning of this hadith has been explained by the scholars to “know God” means to approach Him by doing the works that he wrote (the obligatory deeds fara'idh) and His works which He decreed (voluntary deeds nawafil) and to avoid committing sins. You get to know Allah in difficult times, it means that you do all this when you are not in any direct need, when you have your health, enough money yourself, no major trials etc. But it could also mean that you are in greater need of help to use a special sacred time to do your best. You simply have good times where it’s easy to forget Allah, because you think you do not need anything right now. If you get to know Allah in these periods and hold onto him, he will get to know you in your difficult times, which means he will draw you close to him and to help you get through the difficult periods in your life. Ramadan is such a difficult period in one’s life, it is a test from Allah to see who is honest and who is not. A trial from Allah in which people achieve different levels of reward and closeness to Allah. In this difficult time, you need Allah’s help more than ever. You need his help to use this blessed month to have your sins forgiven, to win salvation from the fire and to achieve higher levels of Allah. You need Allah’s help to facilitate ‘ibadah (worship) for you, and help you to stay away from all sins. It is now the hadith comes in, how do you know that Allah get to know you and help you in this difficult period, when you got to know him in your periods lighter? You need to show that you are honest to get the help of Allah during Ramadan. You are not honest if you ignore everything and postponing until Ramadan comes, you simply will not succeed because you do not have the help of Allah. Do you know now why we have a hard time reading the Quran during Ramadan? For it is not something that we have done during the year. We put the Quran far down our list of priorities, we read it out just once during the year, and then when Ramadan comes, then we believe that we will be able to read it out both one and three and ten times? Surely not. The same applies to pray night prayer during Ramadan. We feel heavy, tired and can not be bothered to ask for long. It is because we have neglected the five prayers during the year, we asked them not in time, and we asked them not with reflection. We approached not Allah in the light periods, how can we win his help during the difficult periods? You may live to Ramadan, yes, but you can guarantee that you will win it? How many Ramadan months have you lived? Have you won Allah’s rescue in any of them?
O you who believe! Obey Allah and obey the Messenger (Muhammad SAW), and those of you (Muslims) who are in authority. (And) if you differ in anything amongst yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messenger (SAW), if you believe in Allah and in the Last Day. That is better and more suitable for final determination.
The Prophet (peace be upon) said, “Nothing will be heavier on the Day of Resurrection in the Scale of the believer than good manners. Allah hates one who utters foul or coarse language.” [At-Tirmidhi, Book 1, Hadith 626]
Narrated by Anas Ibn Malik:
Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) took a silver ring and had ‘Muhammad, the Apostle’ of Allah’ engraved on it. The Prophet then said (to us), 'I have a silver ring with 'Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah engraved on it, so none of you should have the same engraving on his ring.“
حَدَّثَنَا مُسَدَّدٌ، حَدَّثَنَا حَمَّادٌ، عَنْ عَبْدِ الْعَزِيزِ بْنِ صُهَيْبٍ، عَنْ أَنَسِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ ـ رضى الله عنه ـ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم اتَّخَذَ خَاتَمًا مِنْ فِضَّةٍ، وَنَقَشَ فِيهِ، مُحَمَّدٌ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ. وَقَالَ " إِنِّي اتَّخَذْتُ خَاتَمًا مِنْ وَرِقٍ، وَنَقَشْتُ فِيهِ، مُحَمَّدٌ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ. فَلاَ يَنْقُشَنَّ أَحَدٌ عَلَى نَقْشِهِ ".

How To Eat To Live Books 1 & 2 :
#HowToEatToLive, Book 1 & 2 By Elijah Muhammad For more than 30 years, messenger Elijah Muhammad has been teaching the so-called Negroes of America on the proper foods to eat to improve their #mentalpower, physical appearance, for #prevention of #illness, #curing of ailments and prolonging life. Given the humble, economic conditions of the blacks in America, an #inexpensive, yet highly #nutritional #diet was given to them by Elijah Muhammad. Before the #health craze that has swept the country, #ElijahMuhammad and the Nation of Islam were head of the curve as far back as the early 30’s. This is the first of two books written with this simple, yet #revolutionary way of eating.

#Latino #NativeAmerican #Farrakhan on the Broader Scope of }Christ Mission “The Hon #ElijahMuhammad signed off on his articles, Elijah Muhammad, Messenger of #Allah to "YOU ALL.”
Well, Who is YOU ALL?“
Since the book is titled Message to the Black Man in America, does "YOU ALL” mean all Black people in America?
Why then did he plant part of his family in #Mexico?
When they asked what teaching would he give to the #Mexicans, he answered that Mexicans should be given the SAME teachings that he gave us.
Messenger to “YOU ALL” then has to mean the WHOLE HUMAN FAMILY.
All of his people are certainly Black people.
But all of his people are certainly the Righteous, WHEREVER they are, and from WHATEVER PEOPLE they come, they belong to Allah (#MasterFardMuhammad), and they belong to the Messenger of Allah, or The #Christ, or #Messianic figure.
This is why understanding the Honorable Elijah Muhammad as #Messiah, or Christ; understanding the BODY OF CHRIST, or the Messianic mission makes you OUTGROW looking for all of God’s people to come out of ONE PEOPLE.
You look for ALL of God’s people to come out of the HUMAN FAMILY that exists on earth.“ @LouisFarrakhan: Closing the Gap pg 32-33
Learn how to correct your recitation of the Qur’an:
Almighty Allah says:
…and recite the Qur’an with measured recitation. (Al-Muzzammil 73:4)
In another verse:
Those to whom We have given the Book recite it with its true recital. They [are the ones who] believe in it. (Al-Baqarah 2:121)
Welcome to a new interesting episode of “Correct Your Recitation” series with Sheikh Muhammad Salah and his guests. First Sheikh Isma`il recites the full surah of Al-Qadr (the Power) and Al-Bayynah (the Clear Proof). Surat Al-Qadr is the 97th chapter of the Qur’an with seven verses. It was revealed in Makkah just after surat Al-`Ala` (the Clot). It talks about the first revelation of the Qur’an which was in the cave of Hira’ on the last ten days of Ramadan. That night was also Laylat Al-Qadr. Some scholars see that the whole Qur’an was revealed that night in written form from Al-lawh Al-Mahfuzh (Preserved Tablet).
The surah also talks about the superiority of Laylat Al-Qadr (the night of decree) that good deeds on it surpass the actions of a thousand months that do not include the night of decree. The majority of scholars believe that Laylat Al-Qadr occurs in Ramadan, in the odd nights of the last ten nights. Some are of the opinion that it is always on the 27th night, but the correct opinion is that it is on a different night each year. Some say that if any of the odd nights falls on Thursday night, then it is more likely to be Laylat al-Qadr.
Surat Al-Bayynah is the 98th chapter of the Qur’an with eight verses. The surah talks about the polytheists of Makkah as well as the people of the book.
As usual Dr. Muhammad Salah begins his talk by reflecting on the meanings of the verses, and explains the first period of the revelation of the Qur’an. Then Dr. Muhammad receives the phone calls of the viewers to correct their recitation.
Enjoy watching this interesting talk with Dr. Muhammad Salah to know new rules of tajweed.
#tornado Minister #Farrakhan warns “There is NO HIDING PLACE! For NOBODY!
Not for the PREACHERS of the word nor the HEARERS of the word!
Ain’t NO hiding place!
Now Grace is when God renders a Decision against a people(Whites), a nation(America), and a world(Satanic).
Where EVIL is such that God has found that people, that nation wanting and He Determines to DESTROY that people, that nation, and that world.
THEN He raises from among the people an #Apostle(Honorable Elijah Muhammad), a Messenger, a Prophet to make that people AWARE of His JUDGMENT and His INTENTION.
THEN He gives the people TIME.
To recognize their OWN evil, ATONE, REPENT!
And to PLEAD for His FORGIVENESS.
And if there is no change, Then.. Even before that, After He sends the Messenger, Listen, He SEIZES the nation, the people, with distress and affliction to let you know that there is SOMETHING POWERFUL COMING.
He HITS you, then takes it up off you.
Every one of you is getting something RIGHT NOW!
You may not even know what’s happening in your life, but He STRIKES AT YOU WITH DISTRESS AND AFFLICTION to help you to HUMBLE yourself to the Word that you ALREADY HEARD!
To Help you to make the RIGHT Decision.
See you know what the RIGHT decision is.
You need to come on and SUBMIT!
But you keep playing with God.
‘I’ll wait, I’ll come back next week, I’ll come back next year, I’ll come back next month.”
You Might NOT LIVE TO NEXT MONTH!
So Grace is a Manifestation of Favor by a Superior.“ Farrakhan : Divine Destruction of America
