Information in this book, because of its close link to classically written text will be new to many readers.
Thus I suggest one reads, studies and seeks further explanation from Ulema. In fact, it is an ideal text book for advanced adult classes in any part of the world.
The contents, if understood, will definitely create a better rapport, link and bridge between the lay Muslims and the Ulema e Haqq. Dr. Mufti Abdul Wahid, Mufti of Jamia Madina Lahore, Pakistan, has written many other works which are compiled in syllabus form. These are taught
n numerous Masaajids in Pakistan.
It was said a long time ago: "Make your face happy those who give them a Likewise, it is a part of human natureto turn severity and harsh heartedness even if it were to come from (our Prophet (pbuh) who is) the best of Allah the Most High's creatures. Allah the Most High says:
( And had you been severe and harsh hearted, they would have broken away from you) (Surah Aal- 'Imran: 159)
The one calling to the religion of Islam and dealing with other people has the utmost need to gather the people around him, and cause their hearts to lean towards him so that they will listen to him. Adorning himself with kindness and gentleness, helps to achieve that goal with the Grace of Allah.
Texts in the Noble Qur'an and the pure (authentic) Sunnah clearly explain how important it is for the one calling to Islam to adorn himself with kindness. Likewise, (our Prophet who is) the leader of all callers to the religion of Islam and their role model is an example of how to use kindness when calling to the religion of Allah the Most (islam) Also- many of the scholars have emphasized how important it is for the
when he is dealing with people in his everyday ore, Kindness and gentleness towards ins parents, his children, his brothers and sisters, his relatives and friends. It is because of this kindness and gentleness that the people will find pleasure in being around him.
A few Ahadith on the rights of both spouses
Hakeem bin Muaawiyah Radhiallahu Anhu narrates from his father that he asked Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam about the rights of wives against their husbands. He replied: "(1) When you eat, feed her as well, (2) when you clothe yourself, clothe her as well, (3) don't hit her on the face. (In other words, don't hit her in spite of it being her fault. Beating without any valid reason is obviously not permitted on any part of her body.) (4) Don't curse her, and (5) don't sever relationship with her except within the house. (In other words, don't leave the house if you happen to be displeased with her nor abandon her out of the home.) [Abu Dawood]
Hadhrat Abdullah bin Zamah Radhiallahu Anhu narrates that Rasrlullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said: "None of you should beat his wife as though he is beating his slave, then at the end of the day he has intercourse with her!"
(Bukhari, Muslim, Tirmizi)
Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah Radhiallahu Anhu narrates that Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said: "I advise you to maintain a favourable relationship with your women. Accept this advice from me because women were created from a crooked rib. If you endeavour to straighten her, you will break her and breaking her is divorcing her and if you leave her as she is, she will always remain crooked. Therefore, accept this good advice in favour of them. (Bukhari, Muslim, Tirmizi) Note: Straightening her means endeavouring to ensur...read more
10 DIFFERENCES IN THE UMAT (Complete)
DIFFERENCES IN THE UMMAT
Respected Janaab Moulana Saheb, Assalaamualaikum,
A real brother of mine, my cousin, five real uncles, many other close family and I are residing in Dubai and Sharjah now for quite some time. All of us, besides one or two of us perform our Salaat with regularity and punctuality. We spend many of our free hours discussing the various schools of thought. Most of us are relatively learned, and have a good understanding of the religion. Most of us have Kitaabs of the various Ulama of differing Aqaa'id, of which we study quite thoroughly. As far as our relatives are concerned, as close as we are, we have that many differing ideologies and differences between us. We indulge in great criticisms of each other's beliefs. Just like is happening in our hometown, where people criticise and revile the respected Ulama of the opposition. Most of us are of the Sunni Aqaa'id, who regard themselves as the true lovers of Rasulullaah (sallAllaahu alaihi wasallam), and therefore imagine themselves to be the best of the lot. Just like presently in Pakistan, Noorani Mia Saheb regards himself and his group
as "Suwaad-e-Azam", and they perform only the Fardh Salaat,
stating as proof that Islaam began with that only. There is a
group amongst us here that is similar. In their opinion there is
no Aalim in Pakistan other than Moulana Maudoodi, whom
they will follow. Their claim is that it is shirk...read more
The temporary life of this world is a great test for man Temptations are many and man is weak. The possibilities of faltering and sinning are not remote. Of all the temptations, the temptation relating to the opposite sex is the highest. If the sexual urge of man is left unchecked and unregulated, there will be total anarchy and mischief in the world. Therefore, Almighty Allah `h placed various restrictions upon man in this regard.
To control and regulate this desire, any form of illicit affiliation with the opposite sex is strictly forbidden. To maintain a high level of morality, Islam has ordained very strict laws and many restrictions to curtail the unlawful, carnal desires of man.
All of these strict restrictions weigh heavily on the nafs - the bestial self - of man. The nafs constantly seeks carnal gratification and indulgence of its desires. To control the wild desires of the nafs is no easy task. It can be likened to riding a strong, wild horse. Either the rider will keep the horse in check with great effort or the horse will throw the rider off. This is the constant struggle that exists between man and his desires in this world. For the youth, the struggle is even more intense and great.
For those people who restrain and control the desires of the nafs in this world, Allah W has promised immense rewards in the Akirah (hereafter). Man sometimes forgets these rewards and becomes inclined to sin. If he .....
Anyone who believes is responsible for all that he sees and hears. In the Qur'an, Allah calls on Muslims using these words: What reason could you have for not fighting in the Way of Allah for those men, women and children who are oppressed and say, "Our Lord, take us out of this city whose inhabitants are wrongdoers! Give us a protector from You! Give us a helper from You!"? (Qur'an, 4: 75) At a time of violent oppression taking place worldwide, it is impossible for a Muslim to sleep unheeding in his comfortable bed, waste his time on empty matters, and think only of his own interests and pleasures. A true believer knows that the fundamental solution to unjust wars, slaughter, cruelty, hunger, moral degeneration and all the problems facing the world is for people to spread Qur'anic morality. That knowledge imposes a great responsibility on a believer: that of telling the world about the religion of Islam and the beautiful things it brings with it, spreading Qur'anic morality, and waging a struggle of ideas against atheism.
Those who take on that honorable responsibility will help lead all those who are oppressed in the world to the light through the guidance of the Qur'an. By the will of Allah, the long-awaited spring is not far off.
Freemasonry is a subject that has attracted much discussion for centuries. Some have accused Masonry of fantastic crimes and misdeeds. However, instead of trying to understand "the Brotherhood" and criticizing it objectively, critics have been unduly hostile to the organization.
This book contains a true exposition of Masonry as a school of thought. The most important unifying influence among Masons is their philosophy-which can be best described according to such terms as "materialism" and "secular humanism." But, it is an errant philosophy based on false suppositions and flawed theories, as you will see in this book.
In this book, the reader will also be presented with a summary of the history of the Masons' struggle against theistic religions. Freemasons have played an important role in distancing Europe from religion, and in its place, founding of a new order based on the philosophies of materialism and secular humanism. The reader will also see how Masonry has been influential in the imposition of these dogmas-and a social order based on them-on non-Western civilizations.
After reading this book, the reader will be able to consider many aspects, from schools of philosophy to newspaper headlines, rock songs to political ideologies, with a deeper understanding, and better discern the meaning and aims behind events and factors.
People today, and the young in particular, take many individuals as role models, imitate the way they behave, speak and dress, and try to be like them. Yet, since the great majority of these people are not on the right road themselves, they lack proper morality and attitudes. A Muslim needs to try to emulate the behavior and the morality of the Prophet Muhammad (saas), who was sent to mankind as the last prophet. He was a living example of the sublime morality of Allah's last revelation. He was a friend of Allah and inspired humanity by his nearness to Him. Allah confirms that in a verse:
You have an excellent model in the Messenger of Allah, for all who put their hope in Allah and the Last Day and remember Allah much. (Surat al-Ahzab: 21)
Although we have never seen the Prophet (saas), we can still do our very best to come to know his exemplary behaviour, his sayings and the pleasing morality he displayed, by means of the verses of the Qur'an and the hadiths. We can try to be like him, in order to be close to him in the hereafter.
The aim in writing this book is to introduce various characteristics of the Prophet Muhammad (saas), by revealing his devotion, superior morality and noble character.
