For the sake of ALLAH (Exalted is He) : Sahih Al-Bukhari

Door Of Kaaba Sharif Narrated `Abdullah bin `Umar Radi Allahu Anhu that the Prophet SalAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam said,

“While three men were walking, It started raining and they took shelter (refuge) in a cave in a mountain. A big rock rolled down from the mountain and closed the mouth of the cave. They said to each other, “Think of good deeds which you did for Allah’s sake only, and invoke Allah by giving reference to those deeds so that He may remove this rock from you.”

One of them said, ‘O Allah! I had old parents and small children and I used to graze the sheep for them. On my return to them in the evening, I used to milk (the sheep) and start providing my parents first of all before my children. One day I was delayed and came late at night and found my parents sleeping. I milked (the sheep) as usual and stood by their heads. I hated to wake them up and disliked to give milk to my children before them, although my children were weeping (because of hunger) at my feet till the day dawned. O Allah! If I did this for Your sake only, kindly remove the rock so that we could see the sky through it.’ So, Allah removed the rock a little and they saw the sky. Read the rest of this entry »

Blossom of the Youth [بہار شباب] — An Eye Opener

Following is an Eye Opener Preface of the famous Book “Bahar-e-Shabab” by Hadrat Allama Maulana Shaykh Abd al-Aleem Siddiqui Qadiri Meerathi (Khalifah of Sayyiduna AlaHadrat Imam Ahmad Rida Khan Qadiri) written with extreme sincerity and honest concern towards to the youth of entire Islamic Ummah. A must must must read Book and specially the Preface! Hope you will read it yourself and share it with your contacts as well… JazakALLAH in Anticipation!

ALLAH SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala has blessed humankind with numerous powers and His (SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala) Wisdom has equipped man with the knowledge of using it. Although the Creator has given such knowledge to animals, there is a unique difference between humans and animals. Since humankind is the highest order of creation, the Creator has therefore blessed it with a special faculty of knowledge that makes it superior to other creation. ALLAH has equipped the human beings to use this knowledge creatively and also enhance it tremendously. Such ability is not found in the animal kingdom.

Nowadays, claims are made that man is advancing very rapidly and will soon reach the peak of perfection. Man’s advancements in technology, science, chemistry, discoveries, etc. has created a new dimension in this world. His speed of advancement is reaching the once untouchable frontiers of the Universe. His scientific advancement in technology is accomplishing that work in minutes which the physical hand could not do a hundred of years ago. The feet required years of laborious effort to cover distances while modern technology covers that in hours. In this scientific era, a train, a car and an aeroplane can traverse the globe in a matter of hours while in the past this was not physically possible. What the physical ears and eyes could hear was limited but today modern technology can hear and see objects millions of miles away. Televisions, telephones, telescopes, and wireless communications can capture images and sounds in a split of a second from the far and wide corners of the universe while some years ago this was regarded as impossible.

People generally regarded this as an incredible achievement for mankind. But if one carefully ponders over these special abilities and knowledge on which the West relies for its survival, then certainly, one will reach the conclusion that day by day man is not progressing, but in fact regressing. It is possible that one may refute this assumption by presenting proofs of man’s progress to the contribution of humanity. However, man’s special skills have also led to his destruction e.g. numerous types of drugs are researched and manufactured to protect and enhance these special skills of man. But these proofs are actually delusions which can be understood with a little thought. Read the rest of this entry »

Gems of Wisdom by Ameer al-Mu’mineen Sayyiduna Abu Bakr al-Siddiq Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu

  • Two and a half dirham from a hundred is the Zakah (poor tax) belonging to the poor amongst the people of the World while the Zakah of the Siddiques is to give their entire wealth to charity.
  • Extend your charity with humbleness towards the poor for to give charity happily is a sign of acceptance.
  • Wealth cannot be gained by simply wishing for it, nor is youth gained by dyeing or colouring one’s hair, neither can one gain health without medication.
  • Justice and fairness is good, nay it is better.
  • It is necessary to ask forgiveness for one’s sins, nay it is absolutely necessary.
  • Do not bury me in new clothes. The rights of the living and needy is greater upon it.
  • Keep your mouths closed from complaints and vulgarity. By keeping your mouths closed one obtains solitude.
  • Strange are the passing of time yet stranger are the conditions of wanton carelessness (i.e. In remembrance of the Supreme Creator SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala)
  • Adopt abstention, for abstention is profitable and do good deeds, for good deeds are highly accepted in the court of Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala.
  • Weep for the days gone by in which you have but earned little rewards.
  • Weeping is for the day in which you have wasted without any good deeds being done.
  • There is no trouble in patience and there is no benefit in complaining. Read the rest of this entry »

Hadrat Jibrael Alaihis Salam & The Shining Star

The Holy Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam once asked Hadrat Jibrael Alaihis Salam,

“O Jibrael ! How old are you?”

Jibrael al-Ameen Alaihis Salam replied,

“O Rasoolullah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam, I don’t know how old I am, but I do know that in the Fourth Covering (حجاب), I saw a star shine once every 70,000 years, and I saw this 72,000 times.”

The Holy Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam then said,

و عزة ربي انا ذالك الكوكب

“By the honour of Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala! I was that star.” [Tafseer Rooh al-Bayaan, Vol. 1, Page 974]

 

Lesson: The Noor of our Beloved Prophet was created before anything else. He came before angels, humans, the Earth, and whatever else lies within all of creation. Read the rest of this entry »
