prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

Sayyida A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) narrates that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) would kiss one of his wives and then leave for prayer (salat) without performing ablution (wudu). Urwa says that I asked A’isha: “It must have been you?” (Upon hearing this) A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) smiled.

Nickname of ‘Ayesha (رضي الله عنها)

Prophet (ﷺ) used to call his wife ‘Ayesha (رضي الله عنها) lovingly by the nickname of ‘Ayesh.

‘Ayesha (رضي الله عنها) narrated that the Prophet (ﷺ) said to her, “O ‘Ayesh, This is Jibril (عليه السلام) here conveying his greetings of peace to you. She replied, “May the peace and mercy of Allah be upon him too.”

[Sahih Muslim]

O Allah, praise Muhammad, the ascetic
prophet, the messenger of the only
Eternal King, may the blessings and
peace of Allah be upon him, blessings
that are eternal, and reach the farthest
limit of eternity, with neither break nor
depletion, blessings that save us from the
heat of the fires of Hell; an evil resting
place. O Allah, praise and grant peace to
Muhammad, the unlettered prophet, and
his family, blessings that are
uncountable and blessings whose supply
is not impeded. O Allah, praise
Muhammad with blessings that ennoble
his abode and blessings that on the Day
of Judgement procure his pleasure
through his intercession.

and dignity and who journeyed with him
to the King, the Glorious One, on the
long dark night and revealed to him the
heights of kingdoms of heaven, and
showed him the supremacy of the
Omnipotence of the heavens, and who
saw the Power of the Living, the Eternal,
the Abiding, the One who never dies.

he Recording Angel on the Left Waits…

عَنْ أَبِي أُمَامَةَ، عَنْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ، قَالَ:”إِنَّ صَاحِبَ الشِّمَالِ لِيَرْفَعُ الْقَلَمَ سِتَّ سَاعَاتٍ عَنِ الْعَبْدِ الْمُسْلِمِ الْمُخْطِئِ أَوِ الْمُسِيءِ، فَإِنْ نَدِمَ وَاسْتَغْفَرَ اللَّهَ مِنْهَا أَلْقَاهَا، وَإِلا كُتِبَتْ وَاحِدَةً”

Abu Umamah (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated the Messenger of Allah (salallahu alayhi wa salim) said, “ The companion (Angel) on the left lifts his pen for six hours for the Muslim slave that errs or sins. If this slave repents and seeks Allah’s forgiveness for that error or sin, the Angel doesn’t record it. And if the slave doesn’t ask Allah for forgiveness, the Angel records it once.

Collected by At-Tabarani in Kabir (7667 ) , Abu Na’eem in Hilya (6/124), Al-Bayhaqi in Shu’ib (6788). Shaykh Al-Albani graded this hadeeth as being Hasan in Saheehah (1209)

Benefits for this topic:

Lifts the pen for six hours: These six hours could refer to astrological time, or another time period.

The Muslim slave that errs or sins: Means the Angel won’t record the sin or error before the six hours passes. He simply delays writing it.

If the slave repents: This refers to the salve seeking sincere repentance for the sin or error he’s done.

The Angel doesn’t record it: Means the Angel on the left ignores writing it.

If the slave doesn’t ask Allah for forgiveness: This means the Angel on the left writes it down as one bad deed, unlike the Angel that records the good deeds. The Angel on the right writes down a good deed ten times.[ Faydul Qadir Al-Manawee]

Fasting the day of Ashura

It is said of the Day of Ashura, on the authority of Ibn Abbas:
“I never saw Allah’s Messenger (saw) so keen to fast any day and give it priority over any other than this day, the day of ‘Ashura’, and this month, meaning Ramadan” (Al-Bukhari) 

After the Hijrah when the Prophet (saw) came to Madinah, he found that the Jews of Madinah also used to observe this day (i.e. Day of Ashura) with fasting. The Prophet (saw) asked them the reason of their fasting on this day. They said, “This is a blessed day. On this day Allah saved the Children of Israel from their enemy (in Egypt) and so Prophet Musa fasted on this day giving thanks to Allah.” The Prophet (saw) said, “We have more claim to Musa than you.” (Al-Bukhari) He fasted on that day and commanded Muslims to fast on this day. And so in order to be different to the Jews the Prophet (saw) recommended fasting two days instead of one i.e. the 9th and 10th or 10th and 11th.
It is also reported in a hadith that fasting the day of 'Ashura’ expiates the sins of the previous year as the Prophet (saw) said: “Fasting the day of 'Ashura’ (is of great merit), I hope that Allah will accept it as an expiation for (the sins committed in) the previous year” (Muslim)

InshaAllah, this day will fall on the 24th of November (Saturday) and it is recommended to fast the day before or the day after (i.e Friday, or Sunday).

"Whoever removes from a Believer a hardship..."

Abu Huraira (radiallahu anhu) narrated that the Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallaam) said:

مَنْ نَفَّسَ عَنْ مُؤْمِنٍ كُرْبَةٍ مِنْ كُرَبِ الدُّنْيَا

Whoever removes from a Believer a hardship from the hardships of this life (the dunya),

نَفَّسَ اللهُ عَنْهُ كُرْبَةٍ مِنْ كُرَبِ يَوْمِ القِيَامَة

Allah (God) will remove from him a hardship from the hardships of the Day of Judgment

وَ مَنْ يَسَّرَ عَلَى مُعْسَرٍ يَسَّرَ اللهُ عَلَيْهِ فِي الدُّنْيَا والآخِرَة

And whoever makes a difficult affair easy, Allah will make things easy for him in this life and the Hereafter

وَمَنْ سَتَرَ مُسْلِمًا سَتَرَهُ اللهُ فِي الدُّنْيَا والآخِرَة

And whoever covers a Muslim, Allah will cover him in this life and the Hereafter

وَاللهُ فِي عَوْنِ العَبْدِ مَا كَانَ العَبْدُ فِي عَوْنِ أَخِيْهِ

And Allah comes to the help of His servant as long as (or as much as) the servant comes to the help of his brother

وَمَنْ سَلَكَ طَرِيْقًا يَلْتَمِسُ فِيْهِ عِلْمًا

And whoever treads a path seeking (Islamic) knowledge

سَهَّلَ اللهُ لَهُ بِهِ طَرِيقًا إِلَى الجَنَّة

Allah will make easy for him by way of it a path to Paradise

وَمَا اجْتَمَعَ قَوْمٌ فِي بَيْتٍ مِنْ بُيُوْتِ اللهِ

And a group of people don’t gather in one of the houses of Allah

يَتْلُوْنَ كِتَابَ اللهِ

Reciting the Book of Allah

وَيَتَدَارَسُوْنَهُ بَيْنَهُمْ

And studying it amongst themselves

إِلَّا نَزَلَتْ عَلَيْهِم السَّكِيْنَةُ

Except that tranquility descends upon them

وَغَشِيَتْهُم الرَّحْمَة

And mercy covers them

وحَفَّتْهُم المَلَأئِكَة

And the angels surround them

وذَكَرَهُم اللهُ فِيْمَنْ عِنْدَهُ

And Allah mentions them to those with Him

ومَنْ بَطَّأَ بِهِ عَمَلُهُ

And whoever is slowed down by his deeds

لَمْ يُسْرِعْ بِهِ نَسَبُهُ

His lineage won’t speed him up.“ 

[From Saheeh Muslim: The Book of Dhikr, Dua, Repentance, and Seeking Forgiveness, Chapter: The Merit of an Assembly for the Recitation of the Qur’an or for the Dhikr]

On the authority of ‘Amr ibn Dinar (رحمه الله تعالى) who said, “A’ishah رضي الله عنها said, ‘I have never seen anyone more truthful than Faṭimah other than her father.’ And if something happened between them (i.e. Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم and A’ishah رضي الله عنها), she would say, ‘O’ Messenger of Allah, ask her for she does not lie.”

The Slander

when the Messenger of Allaah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) sought the advice of the companions with respect to the story of the slander (of Aisha (radiAllaahu anha))

Umar ibn Al-Khattab (radiAllaahu anhu) said, “Who married you to her, Messenger of Allaah?”

Messenger of Allaah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said, “Allaah.”

Umar ibn Al-Khattab (radiAllaahu anhu) said, “Do you think that your Lord would conceal a defect of hers from you? Glory be to You (O Allaah) this is a great lie.”

Then revelation came down just like that “…Glory be to You (O Allaah) this is a great lie.” [Qur'aan (24:16)]

Allaah forbids you from it and warns you not to repeat the like of it forever, if you are believers.[Qur'aan (24:17)]

“Allah, Exalted is He, shall speak to every one of you without [the need for] an interpreter. When you look to your right side you will find only deeds you have done [in this worldly life]. When you look to left side you will only find the deeds you have done [in this worldly life]. When you look in front of you there will be Hell so save yourself from Hell-fire even by giving half a date-fruit in charity."

— The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ)

[Narrated ‘Adl ibn Hatim, Related by Imam Ahmad in his Musnad (4/256,377), Sahih Al-Bukhari (7/198) (8/185,202, and Sahih Muslim (1016)]

Prophet Muhammad, sallallahu ^alayhi wa sallam, informed us in his saying which was narrated by al-Bukhariyy, Muslim and others, that the prophets are like brothers from the same father but different mothers. He further explained that their basic creed is one and the same but the laws with which they came differed to some extent. Hence, all the prophets and Messengers were Muslim, however, the laws differed from one Messenger to another because the Divinely Wisdom entailed that the needs of the people required such differences.

If it is ever said to you why did the Prophet peace be upon him perform the miracle of Al-‘Isra wal Mi^raj? The answer is for 3 reasons.

- To honour the Prophet sallallahu ^alayhi-wa-sallam.

- To raise the Prophet’s rank.

- To enlighten the Prophet, with some of the wondrous creations of Allah.

It was not performed, so that the Prophet can see Allah in a place, wal ^iyyathubillah, as some ignorant people claim. Or for the Prophet to become physically closer to Allah, there is nothing physical about Allah!

Note: Some of the Companions of the Prophet mentioned that the Prophet saw Allah with his heart, however as always Allah will be seen without being in a place or direction.

anonymous asked:

are u sunni?

“And hold firmly to the rope of Allah all together and do not become divided. And remember the favor of Allah upon you - when you were enemies and He brought your hearts together and you became, by His favor, brothers. And you were on the edge of a pit of the Fire, and He saved you from it. Thus does Allah make clear to you His verses that you may be guided.” - Qur’an [3:103]

I do not follow a school of thought, rather try my best to follow the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the teachings of the Qur’an.

I am not a Sunni, Shi’a, Sufi, Hanafi or any other way you could think to divide an Ummah that is supposed to be united as one.

The greatest and most important truth in my life is la ilaha illallah. 

I am a Muslim, nothing more, nothing less.

Narrated Abu Huraira (radhiAllaahu ‘anhu):

Allah’s Apostle (ﷺ) said, “When the month of Ramadan comes, the gates of Paradise are opened and the gates of the (Hell) Fire are closed, and the devils are chained.”
