prophet muhammad (sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam)

وَإِن تَتَوَلَّوْا يَسْتَبْدِلْ قَوْمًا غَيْرَكُمْ ثُمَّ لَا يَكُونُوا أَمْثَالَكُم

“And if you turn away [from Islam and the obedience of Allāh], He will exchange you for some other people, and they will not be your likes.”

(Qur'ān – Sūrah Muhammad 47:38)

`A’ishah (radhiallahu `anha) reported that she asked Allah’s Messenger (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam), “O Messenger of Allah! If I knew which night is Laylat ul-Qadr, what should I say during it?” And he instructed her to say:

اللْهُمَّ إِنَّكَ عَفُوٌّ تُحِبُّ الْعَفْوَ فَاعْفُ عَنِّي

“Allahumma innaka `afuwwun tuh.ibbul `afwa fa`fu `annee – O Allah!Verily You are the Oft-Pardoning,You love to pardon,so pardon me..”

[Recorded by Ahmad, Ibn Majah, and at-Tirmithi. Verified to be authentic by Al-Albani]

Ibn Mas’ood (radiallahu anhu) described the Companions of the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) saying:

“Allaah looked into the hearts of the servants and found the heart of Muhammad to be the best of hearts, so He chose him for Himself and sent with him His Revelation (Qur'an), then He looked into the hearts of the servants after the heart of Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) and found the hearts of his Companions to be the best of the hearts of the servants, so He made them the helpers of His Prophet, fighting for His Religion…”

Narrated Abū Huraira (radhīAllāhu ‘anhu): Allāh’s Apostle (ﷺ) said, “If Allāh wants to do good to somebody, He afflicts him with trials.”
—  [Sahīh Bukhārī, Vol. 7, Hadīth no. 548. Translated by Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khān]

In the silence of the night, I can feel the cold air rushing through me. I get up from my bed shivering and slowly close my room door. Everyone in my family is asleep except my sister on the laptop chatting with some of her friends. I asked her to come pray Tahajjud with me. She refused saying she has some work to do.

I understood and prayed my Tahajjud prayer. I could feel so much peace in my heart. Tahajjud prayer is my connection with my Lord. He is my best friend and I feel great talking to Him no matter how cold it is. My Lord coming from the seven heavens to listen to my voice. I would not let my sleep or the cold weather stop me. I know someday I will meet my Lord and I love to meet Him soon In shaa’Allah. This is my precious time and I feel relieved telling Him about everything. Tonight I asked my Rabb for a pious husband. I know I am not pious myself but I am sure by marrying a man for his religious commitment, I can be very happy and please my Rabb In shaa’Allah. I also made dua for my sister and all my friends that they marry a righteous man.

After I was done with my prayer, my sister stood near my door and began staring at me constantly. I felt uneasy and asked her if she needed anything. She nodded and said, “What Dua did you make?”. I didn’t say anything. I felt silent.

She kept insisting on me until I gave up! I felt very shy and asked her what kind of a spouse she would want to marry. She thought for a while and said, “I know who I want to marry! Hmm. He will be very handsome. Let’s see. Blue eyes, curly hairs, tall…”
  
“Wait! Stop right there!” I said. “I get it now. You want to marry a good looking guy right?”
  
“Yep!”, my sister shook her head. I advised her to marry a man who is righteous and not for his looks. She ignored me and said, “Yeah! Yeah! Good looking guys are the best”. I said, “The person with a good heart is more beautiful than a good looking man for the beauty fades when one reaches old age.”

It was getting late, so my sister left my room. We both went to sleep. Next morning, me and my sister got ready and went to our College. I was walking through the hallway. Suddenly I heard two girls screaming. “Aaah! Guess who is going to be our new classmate!!”. I was confused as to what’s happening!! Sarah and Rafia got all excited and finally told me that the son of some famous Muslim architecture will be going our College. I told them, “What’s the big deal, it’s just another classmate”. They totally disagreed with me and went on all about him all day which almost ruined my day.

The bell rang! Time for English class! I entered the classroom and found that rich guy looking at me. I lowered my gaze and walked to my seat. My best friend, Farah invited me to her party. In the evening I went home. My life was usual and then the next day was a party at Farah’s house. I entered and met all my dear sisters. We had a great time together and Farah all of a sudden started a topic. Everyone started to talk about marriage.

A day later, a proposal came at my doorstep. It was the rich guy, Amir’s father and Amir who talked to my father asking for my hand. I met Amir and we both talked for a while. Amir’s personality was totally different than mine. He was not very religious. 

Allah’s Messenger (SallAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said: “If there comes to you one with whose religion and attitude you are satisfied, then give your daughter to him in marriage, for if you do not do so, fitnah and mischief will become widespread on earth.” [Tirmidhi]

The next day, SubhanAllah! An amazing thing happened. My father received another proposal from a Muslim brother named Musab Abdullah and he was very pious mashaAllah. His personality and hobbies were similar to mine. He had a sound understanding of Islam and I agreed to his proposal.

A year after my marriage to Muadh, I found out that my best friend Farah got married to Amir. I was so busy with life that I was not able to attend her wedding; however I wished her the best in life. She was very happy mashaAllah.

After Farah’s marriage, Sarah and Rafia got married as well. Sarah chose a very good looking man as her husband. Some people said that he resembled a celebrity. Rafia married someone for his lineage from a very respectable family. All my friends got married Alhamdulillah and I still made dua that they be happy in their lives.

A few months later, I received a phone call from my best friend, Farah. She cried over the phone and I didn’t know what to do. I asked my husband and then drove my car to her house. She, Rafia, and Sarah were all there. They all just kept going on and about how unfaithful, arrogant, and ill-mannered their husbands were to them. I went into the kitchen and made some lemonade. I asked my sisters to first calm down. I thought for a while. I told them to be patient in this time of calamity.

Next, I reminded them about a Hadith of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (Sall Allahu Alayhi Wa Sallam):

“A woman came to ask the Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) about some matter, and when he had dealt with it, he asked her, ‘Do you have a husband?’ She said, 'Yes.’ He asked her, 'How are you with him?’ She said, 'I never fall short in my duties, except for that which is beyond me.’ He said, 'Pay attention to how you treat him, for he is your Paradise and Hell.’” (Ahmad and Nasaa'i)


I then said, "O my dear sisters, I know you are all going through a lot right now. This is indeed a calamity upon you. Know that Allah Subhana Wa Ta'ala tests only those He love. In this time of grief, turn to Him. You are never too late for anything. Allah loves you all so much. Make Repentance and seek His help. Give lots of charity and make lots of Duas for yourselves as well as your husbands. Remember after every hardship comes ease. Do not talk about your husbands in front of others. Be thankful to them for whatever they are doing for you. If they behave in a rude manner, then remind them of Allah. Help them in their Deen and leave the rest to Allah Subhana Wa Ta'ala. If you feel you need to talk, I am here for you. Now wipe your tears, smile and have hope in Allah’s Mercy.  May Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala make it easy on you all. Ameen.“
  
After consoling my sisters, I went home. Alhamdulillah in a few years, my sisters became better in their Deen. They praised Allah Subhana wa ta'ala and thanked me. I felt very happy to see them smiling again. Alhamdulillah.
  
Allah says in the Quran,

"For Muslim men and women- for believing men and women, for devout men and women, for true men and women, for men and women who are patient and constant, for men and women who humble themselves, for men and women who give in charity, for men and women who fast [and deny themselves], for men and women who guard their chastity, and for men and women who engage much in Allah’s praise - for them has Allah prepared forgiveness and great reward.”  [Al Ahzab 33:35]

  May Allah Subhana Wa Ta'ala make us among the righteous and grant us righteous spouses Ameen Ya Rabb!

anonymous asked:

You fucking Muslims are the terrorists! you do not have to face terrorism as we have to in the West. we are all sick of you! GET OUT OF OUR COUNTRY! STOP KILLING OUR PEOPLE! #KILLALLMUSLIMS (i stand by the hashtag!)

First of all, As’salam’ Alaykum (which translates into “peace be upon you”. A very ironic Muslim greeting you must think!)

I shall address your message bit by bit so that you don’t have much problem following me and my thought process. I am however, sorry to know that you feel hurt so deeply about us Muslims (/our existence) and bothered going to so much effort to make sure, I, a fellow Muslim am aware of it. I appreciate it, really. 

You fucking Muslims are the terrorists!

I believe the best way to start this is by referencing the authentic phrasings from the Qur’an and the Hadith (a collection of traditions containing sayings of the Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم (pronounced ‘Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam’ and it stands for “peace be upon him” a blessing which is affixed to Muhammad’s صلى الله عليه و سلم  name whenever it is written.) which, with accounts of his daily practice (the Sunnah), constitute the major source of guidance for Muslims apart from the Qur’an.) and what they have to say on terrorism or to simplify it further - killing of non-Muslims. 

  • Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم  said in an authentic Hadith reported by Imam al-Bukhari (a Persian Islamic scholar who authored the hadith collection known as Sahih al-Bukhari, regarded by Sunni Muslims as one of the most sahih (authentic) of all Hadith compilations.), “Whoever kills a non-Muslim who has an agreement with the Muslims (meaning they are not threatening them for their faith or land) then he will not smell the fragrance of Paradise.”

Transgressing against a person without any due right and taking a life without any right is a great crime.

  • Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم  said, “A Muslim person will not cease to be clearly and correctly upon his religion as long as they do not spill blood which is impermissible for them.” 

On a side note but interlinking it to terrorism - Muslims are warned against treachery and deception. Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلمsaid that the one who breaks his covenant or contract and is deceitful that Allah will expose him upon the Day of Judgement. And Allah will make him known on the Day of Judgement amongst all of the creation, that he was deceitful.

Let me now connect this to my point - when a Muslim enters into a country by law they need to abide to the rules and the system of that country. They need to maintain a safe environment and not trespass their limits that they have promised to keep so when an apparent Muslims causes terror in a place they assured to keep tranquility in, then they are labelled as being deceitful and are looked down by Allah. 

To support this here is a verse from the Qur’an - 

  • “and fulfill [every] commitment. Indeed, the commitment is ever [that about which one will be] questioned.” (Al Israa: 34) 

The adherence to this sacred pledge is of both religious and legal nature, highlighting perfection of faith and leading those who abide by it to enjoy higher ranks in Paradise. 

Another verse says - 

  • “O you who have believed, fulfil [all] contracts.” (Al Ma’idah: 1) 

Any breach of those engagements is considered failing in religion and loss of rights. The Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم  said, “whoever loses the attribute of fulfilling obligations has discarded his religion.” Therefore, Muslims have to commit fully to whatever agreed on in contracts as is mentioned in the following Hadith: “Muslims are liable to their stipulations." 

Furthermore, terrorism is often associated with oppression. In this case, oppression of non-Muslims. The Qur’an and the teachings of the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم have been very stern regarding this matter.

  • The Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم states in al-Bukhari that - “Oppression is darkness on the Day of Judgement.”

It prohibits oppression even if this transgression is against someone that we hate. It is still impermissible. We have to be just when dealing with everyone. This statement is supported by a verse in the Qur’an that says, “And do not let the hatred of a people cause you not to be just. Be just, because it is closer to piety.” (Al Ma’idah: 5:8) Another translation of the same verse is - "O You who have attained to faith! Be ever steadfast in your devotion to God, bearing witness to the truth in all equity; and never let hatred of any-one lead you into the sin of deviating from justice. Be just: this is closest to being God-conscious. And remain conscious of God: verily, God is aware of all that you do." 

To explain this in simple English, it says that if you and another individual hate one another, it is still not permissible to oppress him or transgress against him. And it is not permissible to oppress him; rather it is obligatory that you deal with him justly. It is obligatory upon an individual to still fulfil their covenant or contract that he has with them, even if you hate them.

I’ll summarise this into eight points on how Islamic Law forbids Terrorism

  1. Terrorism is above all murder. Murder is strictly forbidden in the Qur’an. Qur’an 6:151 says, “and do not kill a soul that God has made sacrosanct, save lawfully.” (i.e. murder is forbidden but the death penalty imposed by the state for a crime is permitted). 5:53 says, “… whoso kills a soul, unless it be for murder or for wreaking corruption in the land, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind; and he who saves a life, it shall be as if he had given life to all mankind.”
  2. If the motive for terrorism is religious, it is impermissible in Islamic law. It is forbidden to attempt to impose Islam on other people. The Qur’an says, “There is no compulsion in religion. The right way has become distinct from error.” (The Cow, 2:256). Note that this verse was revealed in Medina in 622 AD or after and was never abrogated by any other verse of the Qur’an. Islam’s Holy book forbids coercing people into adopting any religion. They have to willingly choose it.
  3. Islamic law forbids aggressive warfare. The Qur’an says, “But if the enemies incline towards peace, do you also incline towards peace. And trust in God! For He is the one who hears and knows all things.” (8:61) The Quran chapter “The Cow,” 2:190, says, “Fight in the way of God against those who fight against you, but begin not hostilities. Lo! God loveth not aggressors.”
  4. The killing of innocent non-combatants is forbidden. According to Sunni tradition, ‘Abu Bakr al-Siddiq, the first Caliph, gave these instructions to his armies: “I instruct you in ten matters: Do not kill women, children, the old, or the infirm; do not cut down fruit-bearing trees; do not destroy any town … ” (Malik’s Muwatta’, “Kitab al-Jihad.”)
  5. Terrorism or hirabah is forbidden in Islamic law, which groups it with brigandage, highway robbery and extortion rackets – any illicit use of fear and coercion in public spaces for money or power. The principle of forbidding the spreading of terror in the land is based on the Qur’an (Surah al-Ma’ida 5:33–34). Prominent Muslim legal scholar Sherman Jackson writes, “The Spanish Maliki jurist Ibn `Abd al-Barr (d. 464/ 1070)) defines the agent of hiraba as ‘Anyone who disturbs free passage in the streets and renders them unsafe to travel, striving to spread corruption in the land by taking money, killing people or violating what God has made it unlawful to violate is guilty of hirabah …”
  6. Sneak attacks are forbidden. Muslim commanders must give the enemy fair warning that war is imminent. The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) at one point gave 4 months notice.
  7. The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) counselled doing good to those who harm you and is said to have commanded, “Do not be people without minds of your own, saying that if others treat you well you will treat them well, and that if they do wrong you will do wrong to them. Instead, accustom yourselves to do good if people do good and not to do wrong (even) if they do evil.” (Al-Tirmidhi)
  8. The Qur’an assures Christians and Jews of paradise if they believe and do good works, and commends Christians as the best friends of Muslims. The Quran does not preach violence against Christians. Quran 5:69 says (Arberry): “Surely they that believe, and those of Jewry, and the Christians, and those Sabeaans, whoso believes in God and the Last Day, and works righteousness–their wage waits them with their Lord, and no fear shall be on them, neither shall they sorrow.”

I think this will be enough with the first bit of your message.

Moving on.

you do not have to face terrorism as we have to in the West.

Since I am originally from Pakistan, I think it will be best to talk about something I know firsthand and have witnessed. 

Here is a list of terrorist incidents in Pakistan through the years 2000-2014 (Heavily incomplete list but you can see the rest here.) 

Year 2000

  • 17 January — At least 7 people killed when a bomb exploded in Karachi.
  • 5 February — At least 5 people killed in a bomb attack in a train in Hyderabad.

  • 16 December:- 2014 Peshawar school attack: At least 132 children among over 141 killed by Taliban militants who stormed an army-run school in Peshawar city. Seven militants were also killed during the SSG recue operation.

These facts and figures are only concentrated to one country and that too very incomplete. I just wanted to give you an idea of what we have to deal with, us Muslims. It’s one thing to be killed by terrorists and then another to be humiliated by being labelled as them. How can you associate us with our own murderers?

we are all sick of you! GET OUT OF OUR COUNTRY!

I don’t in fact live in ‘your country’ but for those who do - it’s as much theirs as it is yours. No Muslim should have to live under the weight of the actions of someone else. They have as much a right and I don’t think anyone can make them feel otherwise. I would appreciate if you would stop spreading terror amongst the hearts of my fellow Muslim brothers and sisters because really you are not supporting any cause by trashing another. How are you fighting terrorism by provoking terrorism?

STOP KILLING OUR PEOPLE!

As far as I know, I am quietly sipping my coffee and listening to aggressive heavy-metal music. If that is considered violent I am sincerely sorry. 

And I am sure most Muslims have better stuff to do anyway. Our average day goes by as ordinarily as anyone else’s and if you regard us as the one’s killing your people then surly you are highly mistaken. How will blaming over 2 billion innocent people over the actions of someone else justify the wrong? How will it bring about justice? How is it dealing with the problem?

There is no “our people” or “your people”. We are all fruits from the same tree, some rotten and some forgotten. 

#KILLALLMUSLIMS (i stand by the hashtag!)

I hope killing us all really satisfies you and gives you a sense of accomplishment because how good would that feel. If I didn’t know better I’d have mistaken you for a Muslim. My bad. 

I hope you have a great day. Stay safe. 

EARN A THOUSAND GOOD DEEDS IN MINUTES

Prophet Muhammad (Sall'Allahu alayhi wasalam) said:
“Is anyone of you incapable of earning one thousand Hasanah (rewards) a day?”

Someone asked:
“How can anyone of us earn a thousand Hasanah?”

Prophet Muhammad (Sall'Allahu alayhi wasalam) said:
“Glorify Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala) a hundred (100) times
by just saying ‘Subhanallah’ and good deeds will be written for you,
or a thousand sins will be wiped away.”


- [Muslim 4:2073]

ONE OF THE RAREST TREASURES OF PARADISE

Hadhrat Abu Dharr (Radiallhu Anhu) narrated that Prophet Muhammad (Sall'Allahu alayhi wasalam) said:
“Should I tell you of one treasure of the unlimited treasures of Paradise?”

Hadhrat Abu Dharr (Radiallhu Anhu) replied:

“Oh Prophet Muhammad (Sall'Allahu alayhi wasalam) that would be an honour indeed!”

Prophet Muhammad (Sall'Allahu alayhi wasalam) said:
“That rare treasure is 'La Hawla Wa La Quwwata Illa Billah’.
('The strength to do good and to refrain from evil comes from the grace and mercy of Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala)’)”

- [Ibn Majah]

Narrated ‘Ā’ishah (Allāh be pleased with her): I used to perfume Allāh’s Apostle (ﷺ) with the best scent available till I saw the shine of the scent on his head and beard.
—  [Saheeh Bukhari Volume 7, No. 806. Translated by Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khan]
Narrated Abu Huraira (radhīAllāhu ‘anhu): The Prophet (ﷺ) said “A time will come when one will not care how one gains one’s money, legally or illegally.”
—  [Sahīh Bukhārī Vol. 3, Hadīth no. 275. Translated by Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khān]
The Prophet (Sallallahu-alayhi wa sallam) used to take care of us in preaching by selecting a suitable time, so that we might not get bored. (He abstained from pestering us with sermons and knowledge all the time).

Ibn Mas'ud (Radhi-Allahu-anhu):

[Sahih al-Bukhari Vol1, Book 3, Number 68]

6

“Say,  "O  disbelievers,

I  do  not  worship  what  you  worship.

Nor  are  you  worshippers  of  what  I  worship.

Nor  will  I  be  a  worshipper  of  what  you  worship.

Nor  will  you  be  worshippers  of  what  I  worship.

For  you  is  your  religion,  and  for  me  is  my  religion.”

– The Noble Qu'ran | Surah Al-Kafirun [109:1-6]


“It is narrated by Muslim that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam used to recite this Surah with Surah Al-Ikhlas in two raka'at following tawaf of the Ka'bah; it is also narrated by Muslim that he used to recite them in the two raka'at of fajr prayer; and Imam Ahmad narrates that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam used to recite them in the two raka'at before fajr prayer and in the two raka'at of maghrib prayer.”

I asked the Prophet (ﷺ) about one’s looking here and there during the prayer. He replied, “It is what Satan steals from the prayer of any one of you.”
—  ‘Aishah (رضي الله عنها) [Saheeh Bukhari Vol. 4, No. 511. Translated by Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khan]

Narrated Jundub (radhīAllāhu ‘anhu):

The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “He who lets the people hear of his good deeds intentionally, to win their praise, Allāh will let the people know his real intention (on the Day of Resurrection), and he who does good things in public to show off and win the praise of the people, Allāh will disclose his real intention (and humiliate him).”

—  [Sahīh Bukhārī, Vol. 8, Hadīth no. 506. Translated by Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khān]

Narrated Abū Huraira (radhīAllāhu ‘anhu):

Allāh’s Apostle (ﷺ) said, “The invocation of anyone of you is granted (by Allāh) if he does not show impatience (by saying, “I invoked Allāh but my request has not been granted.”)

—  [Sahīh Bukhārī, Vol. 8, Hadīth no. 352. Translated by Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khān]

Narrated Abu Huraira (radhiAllāhu ‘anhu):

The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Whoever does not give up forged speech and evil actions, Allāh is not in need of his leaving his food and drink.”

—  [Sahīh Bukhārī Vol. 3, Hadīth no. 127. Translated by Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khān]

Narrated Abu Al-Mahh (radhīAllāhu ‘anhu):

We were with Buraida in a battle on a cloudy day and he said, “Offer the ‘Asr prayer early as the Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Whoever leaves the 'Asr prayer, all his (good) deeds will be annulled.”
