The birds celebrate Our praises…….. 21:49

To Solomon We inspired the (right) understanding of the matter: to each (of them) We gave Judgment and Knowledge; it was Our power that made the hills and the birds celebrate Our praises, with David: it was We Who did (all these things).

( سورة الأنبياء , Al-Anbiya, Chapter #21, Verse #79)
“`
One look at the face of heaven and earth lays all petulance at rest, and soothes us to wiser convictions. To the intelligent, nature converts itself into a vast promise, and will not be rashly explained. Her secret is untold.

Quran 9:5 – Sword Verse


Discover The Truth

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Kaleef K. Karim

Whenever critics bring verses of the Quran to demonstrate that Islam is violent, that it sanctions Muslims to kill non-Muslims (as assumed by them), they do a cut and paste of a verse and try hide context of the passage. They don’t show the previous and the verses after, what it actually says. Take for example this passage,

QURAN 9:5 “So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them.”

According to critics (especially hate-mongering Christian missionaries), they say, ‘this verse approves the killing of non-Muslims anywhere at any-time.’ We know this is a lie spread by Islamophobes in order to frighten people about…

Book of Fate


1030297931.jpgRasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Bear in mind that if all the people combined together to grant you some benefit, they would not be able to do it unless Allah has determined it for you. And that if all of them combined together to do you harm, they would not be able to do it unless Allah has determined it for you. The pens have been set aside and writings of the Book of Fate have become dry.” [Tirmidhi]

The important lesson to understand from this hadith is that we must not fear death, loss or reproach in obeying the commands of Allah (subhana wa ta’ala), for only that harm will come to us which is already destined to. A believer should not be frightened by the number or resources of the enemies of Allah. This should never determine whether they should obey Allah or not, as this hadith tells us that they can not do any harm unless Allah has destined it for them. And if that is the case that harm will come anyway, but the believer will be rewarded for obeying the commands of Allah (subhana wa ta’ala).

Unfortunately, we find Muslims helping to hurt and kill other Muslims today, using as an excuse that harm would come to them otherwise. We need to develop our understanding of qada wal qadar to become righteous.

 

Thinking About Another Woman


108630The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “A man who thinks about the body of a woman under her clothes until he can visualize her shape, will not even smell the fragrance of Paradise.” [Albahr-ul Raaiq, vol. 8, p. 218]

 

A woman who keeps herself hidden and covered would hate to be the object of a strange man’s fantasies. There is no police in the world that can know or prevent a man from thinking about another woman. The only person who can stop him is himself. The only police that he can be scared of, are Allah’s angels who will carry out His orders of punishment, since nothing remains hidden from Him.

 

You are your own police. Let your conscience police you before Allah’s angels have to do the job! Thinking about and imagining the looks of a non-Mahram is forbidden in the Shariah. So save yourself from unworthy thoughts – thoughts that will keep you out of Paradise!

Keep Eyes Off Awrah


islamic-wallpaper-allah-quran-green-690x517.jpgThe Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “No man should look at the Awrah of another man and no woman should look at the Awrah of another woman. Also, no man should be with another man under one piece of cloth and no woman should be with another woman under one piece of cloth.” [Muslim]

 

The Awrah for a man is from his navel to just below his knees. The entire body of a woman with the exception of her face, palms and feet are included in her Awrah in front of a man. In front of another woman, her Awrah is from her navel to just below her knees; though keeping her body well covered and not looking at others’ bodies is more modest and thus more beloved to Allah (subhana wa ta’ala).

 

Criteria for Hiring and Firing


Once the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) passed by the grazing place of camels which were given as Sadaqah. He saw the shepherd lying naked in the sun. The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) immediately dismissed him and said, “No shameless person should work for us.” [Mabsut Sarkhasi]

What are my standards for hiring and firing people?

Is money my God, or do I have a Higher Deity whom I worship, obey and seek to please?

Bashful with Allah


Bahz bin Hakim (radi Allahu anhu) narrated that his grandfather once asked the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam), “O Prophet of Allah! With whom should we observe the Awrah?” He replied, “Protect your Awrah from everyone except your wife and your slave-women.” I asked, “O Prophet of Allah! Sometimes a person is alone?” He (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) replied, “Allah is more deserving of bashfulness from you.” [Tirmidhi]

 

Once the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) was going somewhere when he saw a servant publicly taking a bath in the nude. He said to him, “I don’t find you bashful with Allah. Consider yourself dismissed. We don’t need your service.” [Az-Zawajir]
