anonymous asked:

What is the importance of figs and olives?

Surah At-Tin:

  1. By the fig, and the olive,
  2. By Mount Sinai,
  3. And by this city of security (Makkah) ,
  4. Verily, We created man of the best stature (mould),
  5. Then We reduced him to the lowest of the low,
  6. Save those who believe (in Islamic Monotheism) and do righteous deeds, then they shall have a reward without end (Paradise).
  7. Then what (or who) causes you (O disbelievers) to deny the Recompense (i.e. Day of Resurrection)?
  8. Is not Allah the Best of judges?

Allah (God) takes three oaths in the Quran before stating that humans are created with the best of appearance.

“Do not make [as equal] with Allah another deity and [thereby] become censured and forsaken. (22

And lower to them the wing of humility out of mercy and say, “My Lord, have mercy upon them as they brought me up [when I was] small.” (24

Your Lord is most knowing of what is within yourselves. If you should be righteous [in intention] - then indeed He is ever, to the often returning [to Him], Forgiving. (25)”

When the Prophet finished the prayer with Taslim, he said, “The Imam is to be followed and if he prays standing then pray standing, and bow when he bows, and raise your heads when he raises his head; prostrate when he prostrates; and if he says "Sami'a-l-lahu Liman hamida”, you should say, “Rabbana wa-laka-l hamd.:

Riyad as-Salihin, The Book of Miscellany Book 1, Hadith 538

Narrated ‘538. Salim, son of Abdullah bin 'Umar, from his father Abdullah; from 'Umar (ra):

Messenger of Allah (pbuh) would give me some gift, but I would say: “Give it to someone who needs it more than I.” Thereupon he (pbuh) would say, “Take it when it comes to you without begging and without greed, and add it to your property. Then use it yourself or give it away in charity. As for the rest, do not covet it.” Salim said: 'Abdullah bin 'Umar would never ask anything from anyone, nor would he refuse accepting it when it was given to him. [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].


سورة الناس

Say, “I seek refuge in the Lord of mankind.

The King of mankind, 

The God of mankind.

From the evil of the retreating whisperer 

Who whispers [evil] into the breasts of mankind. 

From among the jinn and mankind.” -
