How & Reasons to Convert/Return to Islam and Become a Muslim

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

[In the Name of ALLAH, the ENTIRELY MERCIFUL, the ESPECIALLY MERCIFUL]

 

“ALLAH – there is no deity except HIM, the EVER-LIVING, the SUSTAINER of [all] existence. Neither drowsiness overtakes HIM nor sleep. To HIM belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who is it that can intercede with HIM except by HIS permission? HE knows what is [presently] before them and what will be after them, and they encompass not a thing of HIS knowledge except for what HE wills. HIS Kursi extends over the heavens and the earth, and their preservation tires HIM not. And HE is the MOST HIGH, the MOST GREAT.”

– [2:255] 2.Surat Al-Baqarah (The Cow) – سورة البقرة

 

Islam means submission to the Will of ALLAH [S.W.T].

Muslim means those who submit themselves to the Will of ALLAH [S.W.T] regardless of their race, nationality or ethnic background. Becoming a Muslim is a simple and easy process that requires no pre-requisites. One may convert alone in privacy, or they may do so in the presence of others.

If anyone has a real desire to be a Muslim and has full conviction and strong belief that Islam is the true religion of ALLAH [S.W.T], then, all one needs to do is pronounce the “Shahada”, the testimony of faith, without further delay. The “Shahada” is the first and most important of the five pillars of Islam.

With the pronunciation of this testimony, or “Shahada”, with sincere belief and conviction, one enters the fold of Islam.

The Declaration of the Testimony (Shahada)

Also known as the word of testimony or the Kalima-e-Shahaadat or Shahada. To convert /return to Islam and become a Muslim a person needs to pronounce the below testimony with conviction and understanding its meaning:

اَشْهَدُ اَنْ لآَّ اِلَهَ اِلاَّ اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لاَشَرِيْكَ لَهُ وَاَشَْْهَدُ اَنََّ مُحَمَّدًا عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُوْلُهُ

Pronunciation:

Ashadu Al-Laa Ilaaha Illaal-Laahu Wahdahu Laa Sharikalaahu Wa Ashadu Anna Muhammadun Abduhu Wa Rasuluhu

Translation:

I bear witness that none is worthy of Worship but ALLAH, the ONE Alone, without partner, and I bear witness that Muhammad [S.A.W.S] is HIS servant and Messenger.

 

The first part of the testimony consists of the most important truth that ALLAH [S.W.T] revealed: that there is nothing divine or worthy of being Worshiped except for Almighty ALLAH [S.W.T]. ALLAH [S.W.T] states in The Holy Qur’an:

“And WE sent not before you any Messenger except that WE revealed to him that, “There is no deity except ME, so Worship ME.””

– [21:25] 21.Surat Al-‘Anbyā’ (The Prophets) – سورة الأنبياء

“And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to Worship ME.

I do not want from them any provision, nor do I want them to feed ME.

Indeed, it is ALLAH who is the [continual] PROVIDER, the FIRM POSSESSOR OF STRENGTH.”

– [51:56-58] 51.Surat Adh-Dhāriyāt (The Winnowing Winds) – سورة الذاريات

“But they have attributed to ALLAH partners – the jinn, while HE has created them – and have fabricated for HIM sons and daughters. Exalted is HE and High above what they describe

[HE is] ORIGINATOR of the heavens and the earth. How could HE have a son when HE does not have a companion and HE created all things? And HE is, of all things, KNOWING.

That is ALLAH, your LORD; there is no deity except HIM, the CREATOR of all things, so Worship HIM. And HE is DISPOSER of all things.”

– [6:100-102] 6.Surat Al-‘An`ām (The Cattle) – سورة الأنعام

It is not [befitting] for ALLAH to take a son; Exalted is HE! When HE decrees an affair, HE only says to it, “Be,” and it is.”

– [19:35] 19.Surat Maryam (Mary) – سورة مريم

“Say, “HE is ALLAH, [WHO is] ONE,

ALLAH, the ETERNAL REFUGE.

HE neither begets nor is born,

Nor is there to HIM any equivalent.””

– [112:1-4] 112.Surat Al-‘Ikhlāş (The Sincerity) – سورة الإخلاص

“HE is ALLAH, other than WHOM there is no deity, KNOWER of the unseen and the witnessed. HE is the ENTIRELY MERICFUL, the ESPECIALLY MERCIFUL.

HE is ALLAH, other than WHOM there is no deity, the SOVERIGN, the PURE, the PERFECTION, the BESTOWER OF FAITH, the OVERSEER, the EXALTED IN MIGHT, the COMPELLER, the SUPERIOR. Exalted is ALLAH above whatever they associate with HIM.

HE is ALLAH, the CREATOR, the INVENTOR, the FASHIONER; to HIM belong the best Names. Whatever is in the heavens and earth is Exalting HIM. And HE is the EXALTED IN MIGHT, the WISE.”

– [59-22-24] 59.Surat Al-Ĥashr (The Exile) – سورة الحشر

 

This conveys that all forms of Worship, whether it be praying, fasting, giving charity, invoking, seeking refuge in, and offering an animal as sacrifice, distributing property and so on must be directed to ALLAH [S.W.T] and to ALLAH [S.W.T] Alone. Directing any form of Worship to other than ALLAH [S.W.T] (whether it be an Angel, a Messenger (e.g. Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, Jesus, Muhammad [P.B.U.T]), a saint, an idol, the fire, the sun, the moon, stars, stones, trees etc.) is seen as a contradiction to the fundamental Message of Islam, and it is an unforgivable sin unless it is repented from before one dies. All forms of Worship must be directed to ALLAH [S.W.T] Only.

ALLAH [S.W.T] states about The Holy Qur’an as a best guidance to HIS Creations:

“ALLAH has sent down the best statement: a consistent Book wherein is reiteration. The skins shiver therefrom of those who fear their LORD; then their skins and their hearts relax at the remembrance of ALLAH. That is the guidance of ALLAH by which HE guides whom HE wills. And one whom ALLAH leaves astray – for him there is no guide.”

– [39:23] 39.Surat Az-Zumar (The Troops) – سورة الزمر

“If WE had sent down this Qur’an upon a mountain, you would have seen it humbled and coming apart from fear of ALLAH . And these examples WE present to the people that perhaps they will give thought.”

-[59:21] 59.Surat Al-Ĥashr (The Exile) – سورة الحشر

And also know this, ALLAH [S.W.T] said in The Holy Qur’an:

“Indeed, the first House [of Worship] established for mankind was that at Makkah – blessed and a guidance for the worlds.”

– [3:96] 3.Surat ‘Āli `Imrān (Family of Imran) – سورة آل عمران

So make your faith and steadfast as clear and simple on ALLAH [S.W.T] as this Verse, which HE mentioned about HIM in The Holy Qur’an:

“And with HIM are the keys of the unseen; none knows them except HIM. And HE knows what is on the land and in the sea. Not a leaf falls but that HE knows it. And no grain is there within the darknesses of the earth and no moist or dry [thing] but that it is [written] in a clear record.

And it is HE who takes your souls by night and knows what you have committed by day. Then HE revives you therein that a specified term may be fulfilled. Then to HIM will be your return; then HE will inform you about what you used to do.”

– [6:59-60] 6.Surat Al-‘An`ām (The Cattle) – سورة الأنعام

 

ALLAH [S.W.T] warned against those people; who are the enemies of their own souls in The Holy Qur’an:

“And they say, “The MOST MERCIFUL has taken [for HIMSELF] a son.”

You have done an atrocious thing.

The heavens almost rupture therefrom and the earth splits open and the mountains collapse in devastation

That they attribute to the MOST MERCIFUL a son.

And it is not appropriate for the MOST MERCIFUL that HE should take a son.

There is no one in the heavens and earth but that he comes to the MOST MERCIFUL as a servant.”

– [19:88-93] 19.Surat Maryam (Mary) – سورة مريم

 

And there is another type of people who thinks this worldly life is final life nothing after that when it’s done and do not believe in the hereafter (i.e. the Resurrection), in The Holy Qur’an, ALLAH [S.W.T] addressed them:

“O People, if you should be in doubt about the Resurrection, then [consider that] indeed, WE created you from dust, then from a sperm-drop, then from a clinging clot, and then from a lump of flesh, formed and unformed – that WE may show you. And WE settle in the wombs whom WE will for a specified term, then WE bring you out as a child, and then [WE develop you] that you may reach your [time of] maturity. And among you is he who is taken in [early] death, and among you is he who is returned to the most decrepit [old] age so that he knows, after [once having] knowledge, nothing. And you see the earth barren, but when WE send down upon it rain, it quivers and swells and grows [something] of every beautiful kind.

That is because ALLAH is the Truth and because HE gives life to the dead and because HE is over all things COMPETENT

And [that they may know] that the Hour is coming – no doubt about it – and that ALLAH will resurrect those in the graves.”

– [22:5-7] 22.Surat Al-Ĥaj (The Pilgrimage) – سورة الحج

In another verse of The Holy Qur’an ALLAH [S.W.T] informed about their consequences and guides those who fear ALLAH [S.W.T]:

“And they say, “There is none but our worldly life, and we will not be resurrected.”

If you could but see when they will be made to stand before their LORD. HE will say, “Is this not the truth?” They will say, “Yes, by our LORD.” HE will [then] say, “So taste the punishment because you used to disbelieve.”

Those will have lost who deny the meeting with ALLAH, until when the Hour [of resurrection] comes upon them unexpectedly, they will say, “Oh, [how great is] our regret over what we neglected concerning it,” while they bear their burdens on their backs. Unquestionably, evil is that which they bear.

And the worldly life is not but amusement and diversion; but the home of the Hereafter is best for those who fear ALLAH, so will you not reason?”

– [6:29-32] 6.Surat Al-‘An`ām (The Cattle) – سورة الأنعام

 

In addition, there is another type of people; those who associates others (e.g. the sun, the moon, stars, trees, especially idols etc.) in Worship besides ALLAH [S.W.T]. In The Holy Qur’an, ALLAH [S.W.T] clears the matter about them with an example:

“Do you not know that ALLAH knows what is in the heaven and earth? Indeed, that is in a Record. Indeed that, for ALLAH, is easy.

And they Worship besides ALLAH that for which HE has not sent down authority and that of which they have no knowledge. And there will not be for the wrongdoers any helper.

And when OUR verses are recited to them as clear evidences, you recognize in the faces of those who disbelieve disapproval. They are almost on the verge of assaulting those who recite to them OUR verses. Say, “Then shall I inform you of [what is] worse than that? [It is] the Fire which ALLAH has promised those who disbelieve, and wretched is the destination.”

O people, an example is presented, so listen to it. Indeed, those you invoke besides ALLAH will never create [as much as] a fly, even if they gathered together for that purpose. And if the fly should steal away from them a [tiny] thing, they could not recover it from him. Weak are the pursuer and pursued.

They have not appraised ALLAH with true appraisal. Indeed, ALLAH is POWERFUL and EXALTED IN MIGHT.”

– [22:70-74] 22.Surat Al-Ĥaj (The Pilgrimage) – سورة الحج

“And [WE sent] Abraham, when he said to his people, “Worship ALLAH and fear HIM. That is best for you, if you should know.

You only Worship, besides ALLAH, idols, and you produce a falsehood. Indeed, those you Worship besides ALLAH do not possess for you [the power of] provision. So seek from ALLAH provision and Worship HIM and be grateful to HIM. To HIM you will be returned.”

And if you [people] deny [the message] – already nations before you have denied. And there is not upon the Messenger except [the duty of] clear notification.”

– [29:16-18] 29.Surat Al-`Ankabūt (The Spider) – سورة العنكبوت

“And the ones who disbelieve in the signs of ALLAH and the meeting with HIM – those have despaired of MY mercy, and they will have a painful punishment.

And the answer of Abraham’s people was not but that they said, “Kill him or burn him,” but ALLAH saved him from the fire. Indeed in that are signs for a people who believe.

And [Abraham] said, “You have only taken, other than ALLAH, idols as [a bond of] affection among you in worldly life. Then on the Day of Resurrection you will deny one another and curse one another, and your refuge will be the Fire, and you will not have any helpers.””

– [29:23-25] 29.Surat Al-`Ankabūt (The Spider) – سورة العنكبوت

 “The example of those who take allies other than ALLAH is like that of the spider who takes a home. And indeed, the weakest of homes is the home of the spider, if they only knew.

Indeed, ALLAH knows whatever thing they call upon other than HIM. And HE is the EXALTED IN MIGHT, the WISE.

And these examples WE present to the people, but none will understand them except those of knowledge.

ALLAH Created the heavens and the earth in truth. Indeed in that is a sign for the believers.”

– [29:41-44] 29.Surat Al-`Ankabūt (The Spider) – سورة العنكبوت

 

And next types of peoples are those about whom in The Holy Qur’an, ALLAH [S.W.T] said:

“And of the people are some who say, “We believe in ALLAH,” but when one [of them] is harmed for [the Cause of] ALLAH, they consider the trial of the people as [if it were] the punishment of ALLAH. But if victory comes from your LORD, they say, “Indeed, we were with you.” Is not ALLAH Most Knowing of what is within the breasts of all Creatures?

And ALLAH will surely make evident those who believe, and HE will surely make evident the hypocrites.

And those who disbelieve say to those who believe, “Follow our way, and we will carry your sins.” But they will not carry anything of their sins. Indeed, they are liars.

But they will surely carry their [own] burdens and [other] burdens along with their burdens, and they will surely be questioned on the Day of Resurrection about what they used to invent.”

– [29:10-13] 29.Surat Al-`Ankabūt (The Spider) – سورة العنكبوت

 

So follow the true guidance of ALLAH [S.W.T] which is in The Holy Qur’an:

And no bearer of burdens will bear the burden of another. And if a heavily laden soul calls [another] to [carry some of] its load, nothing of it will be carried, even if he should be a close relative. You can only warn those who fear their LORD unseen and have established prayer. And whoever purifies himself only purifies himself for [the benefit of] his soul. And to ALLAH is the [final] destination.”

– [35:18] 35.Surat Fāţir (Originator) – سورة فاطر

Thus ALLAH [S.W.T] said in The Holy Qur’an:

“And those who strive for US – WE will surely guide them to OUR ways. And indeed, ALLAH is with the doers of good.”

– [29:69] 29.Surat Al-`Ankabūt (The Spider) – سورة العنكبوت

Worship means the performance of deeds and sayings that please ALLAH [S.W.T], things that HE commanded or encouraged to be performed, either by direct textual proof or by analogy. Thus, Worship is not restricted to the implementation of the five pillars of Islam, but also includes every aspect of life. Providing food for one’s family, and saying something pleasant to cheer a person up are also considered acts of Worship, if such is done with the intention of pleasing ALLAH [S.W.T]. This means that, to be accepted, all acts of Worship must be carried out sincerely for the Sake of ALLAH [S.W.T] Alone.

ALLAH [S.W.T] advised in The Holy Qur’an:

“Say, “O MY servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of ALLAH. Indeed, ALLAH forgives all sins. Indeed, it is HE who is the FORGIVING, the MERCIFUL.”

And return [in repentance] to your LORD and submit to HIM before the punishment comes upon you; then you will not be helped.

And follow the best of what was revealed to you from your LORD before the punishment comes upon you suddenly while you do not perceive,

Lest a soul should say, “Oh [how great is] my regret over what I neglected in regard to ALLAH and that I was among the mockers.”

Or [lest] it say, “If only ALLAH had guided me, I would have been among the righteous.”

Or [lest] it say when it sees the punishment, “If only I had another turn so I could be among the doers of good.”

But yes, there had come to you MY verses, but you denied them and were arrogant, and you were among the disbelievers.

And on the Day of Resurrection you will see those who lied about ALLAH [with] their faces blackened. Is there not in Hell a residence for the arrogant?

And ALLAH will save those who feared HIM by their attainment; no evil will touch them, nor will they grieve.

ALLAH is the CREATOR of all things, and HE is, over all things, DISPOSER OF AFFAIRS.

To HIM belong the keys of the heavens and the earth. And they who disbelieve in the verses of ALLAH – it is those who are the losers.”

– [39:53-63] 39.Surat Az-Zumar (The Troops) – سورة الزمر

 

The second part of the testimony means that Prophet Muhammad [S.A.W.S] is the servant and chosen Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T]. This implies that one should obey and follow the commands of the Prophet [S.A.W.S]. One must believe in what he has said, practice his teachings and avoid what he has forbidden. One must therefore Worship ALLAH [S.W.T] Only according to his teaching alone, for all the teachings of the Prophet [S.A.W.S] were in fact revelations and inspirations conveyed to him by ALLAH [S.W.T].

One must try to mold their lives and character and emulate the Prophet [S.A.W.S], as he was a living example to follow. ALLAH [S.W.T] said:

“And indeed, you are of a great moral character.”

– [68:4] 68.Surat Al-Qalam (The Pen) – سورة القلم

ALLAH [S.W.T] also said:

“There has certainly been for you in the Messenger of ALLAH an excellent pattern for anyone whose hope is in ALLAH and the Last Day and [who] remembers ALLAH often.”

– [33:21] 33.Surat Al-‘Aĥzāb (The Combined Forces) – سورة الأحزاب

He was sent in order to practically implement the Qur’an, in his saying, deeds, legislation as well as all other facts of life. Aisha (R.A), the wife of the Prophet [S.A.W.S], when asked about the character of the Prophet [S.A.W.S], replied:

“His character was that of the Qur’an.”

(As-Suyooti)

To truly adhere to the second part of the Shahada is to follow his example in all walks of life. ALLAH [S.W.T] said:

“Say, [O Muhammad], “If you should love ALLAH, then follow me, [so] ALLAH will love you and forgive you your sins. And ALLAH is FORGIVING and MERCIFUL.” “

– [3:31] 3.Surat ‘Āli `Imrān (Family of Imran) – سورة آل عمران

“And WE have not sent you, [O Muhammad], except as a mercy to the worlds.”

– [21:107] 21.Surat Al-‘Anbyā’ (The Prophets) – سورة الأنبياء

“And WE have not sent you except comprehensively to mankind as a Bringer of good tidings and a Warner. But most of the people do not know.”

– [34:28] 34.Surat Saba’ (Sheba) – سورة سبإ

“Say, “Come, I will recite what your LORD has prohibited to you. [HE commands] that you not associate anything with HIM, and to parents, good treatment, and do not kill your children out of poverty; WE will provide for you and them. And do not approach immoralities – what is apparent of them and what is concealed. And do not kill the soul which ALLAH has forbidden [to be killed] except by [legal] right. This has HE instructed you that you may use reason.”

And do not approach the orphan’s property except in a way that is best until he reaches maturity. And give full measure and weight in justice. WE do not charge any soul except [with that within] its capacity. And when you testify, be just, even if [it concerns] a near relative. And the covenant of ALLAH fulfill. This has HE instructed you that you may remember.

And, [moreover], this is My path, which is straight, so follow it; and do not follow [other] ways, for you will be separated from HIS way. This has HE instructed you that you may become righteous.”

– [6:151-153] 6.Surat Al-‘An`ām (The Cattle) – سورة الأنعام

“Whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth is Exalting ALLAH, the SOVERIGN, the PURE, the EXALTED IN MIGHT, the WISE.

It is HE WHO has sent among the unlettered a Messenger from themselves reciting to them HIS verses and purifying them and teaching them the Book and wisdom – although they were before in clear error –

And [to] others of them who have not yet joined them. And HE is the EXALTED IN MIGHT, the WISE.

That is the bounty of ALLAH, which HE gives to whom HE wills, and ALLAH is the POSSESSOR OF GREAT BOUNTY.”

– [62:1-4] 62.Surat Al-Jumu`ah (The Congregation, Friday) – سورة الجمعة

And supplicate to ALLAH [S.W.T] to bestow HIS Blessing and Peace upon Hadrat Muhammad [S.A.W.S]. The believers had been advised by ALLAH [S.W.T] in The Holy Qur’an:

“Indeed, ALLAH confers Blessing upon the Prophet, and HIS Angels [ask HIM to do so]. O you who have believed, ask [ALLAH to confer] Blessing upon him and ask [ALLAH to grant him] Peace.”

– [33:56] 33.Surat Al-‘Aĥzāb (The Combined Forces) – سورة الأحزاب

 

“Muhammad is not the father of [any] one of your men, but [he is] the Messenger of ALLAH and last of the Prophets. And ever is ALLAH, of all things, KNOWING.”

– [33:40] 33.Surat Al-‘Aĥzāb (The Combined Forces) – سورة الأحزاب

It also means that Hadrat Muhammad [S.A.W.S] is the Final and seal of the Prophets (P.B.U.T) and Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T], and that no (true) Prophet will come after him. All who claim to be Prophets or receive revelation after Hadrat Muhammad [S.A.W.S] are impostors, and to acknowledge them would be tantamount to disbelief.

 

Upon entering the fold of Islam purely for the Pleasure of ALLAH [S.W.T], all of one’s previous sins are forgiven, and one starts a new life of piety and righteousness. When one accepts Islam, they in essence repent from the ways and beliefs of their previous life. One need not be overburdened by sins committed before their acceptance. The person’s record is clean, and it is as if that person has just born from mother’s womb. One should try as much as possible to keep his/her records clean and strive to do as many good deeds as possible. So affirm your faith in ALLAH [S.W.T] and then remain steadfast to it and beware from falsehood and deception.

ALLAH [S.W.T] states in The Holy Qur’an:

“They say, “Be Jews or Christians [so] you will be guided.” Say, “Rather, [we follow] the religion of Abraham, inclining toward truth, and he was not of the polytheists.”

Say, [O believers], “We have believed in ALLAH and what has been revealed to us and what has been revealed to Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the Descendants and what was given to Moses and Jesus and what was given to the Prophets from their LORD. We make no distinction between any of them, and we are Muslims [in submission] to HIM.””

– [2:135-136] 2.Surat Al-Baqarah (The Cow) – سورة البقرة

“And [mention, O Muhammad], when Moses said to his people, “O my people, why do you harm me while you certainly know that I am the Messenger of ALLAH to you?” And when they deviated, ALLAH caused their hearts to deviate. And ALLAH does not guide the defiantly disobedient people.

And [mention] when Jesus, the son of Mary, said, “O children of Israel, indeed I am the Messenger of ALLAH to you confirming what came before me of At-Tawrat (i.e. the Torah) and bringing good tidings of a Messenger to come after me, whose name is Ahmad (i.e. Muhammad).” But when he came to them with clear evidences, they said, “This is obvious magic.”

And who is more unjust than one who invents about ALLAH untruth while he is being invited to Islam. And ALLAH does not guide the wrongdoing people.

They want to extinguish the Light of ALLAH with their mouths, but ALLAH will perfect HIS Light, although the disbelievers dislike it.

It is HE WHO sent HIS Messenger with guidance and the religion of truth to manifest it over all religion, although those who associate others with ALLAH dislike it.”

– [61:5-9] 61.Surat Aş-Şaf (The Ranks) – سورة الصف

“It is not for a human [Prophet] that ALLAH should give him the Scripture and authority and Prophethood and then he would say to the people, “Be servants to me rather than ALLAH ,” but [instead, he would say], “Be pious scholars of the LORD because of what you have taught of the Scripture and because of what you have studied.”

Nor could he order you to take the Angels and Prophets as LORDS. Would he order you to disbelief after you had been Muslims?

And [recall, O People of the Scripture], when ALLAH took the covenant of the Prophets, [saying], “Whatever I give you of the Scripture and wisdom and then there comes to you a Messenger (i.e. Muhammad) confirming what is with you, you [must] believe in him and support him.” [ALLAH] said, “Have you acknowledged and taken upon that MY Commitment?” They said, “We have acknowledged it.” HE said, “Then bear witness, and I am with you among the Witnesses.”

And whoever turned away after that – they were the defiantly disobedient.

So is it other than the religion of ALLAH they desire, while to HIM have submitted [all] those within the heavens and earth, willingly or by compulsion, and to HIM they will be returned?

Say, “We have believed in ALLAH and in what was revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and the Descendants, and in what was given to Moses and Jesus and to the Prophets from their LORD. We make no distinction between any of them, and we are Muslims [submitting] to HIM.”

And whoever desires other than Islam as religion – never will it be accepted from him, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers.”

– [3:79-85] 3.Surat ‘Āli `Imrān (Family of Imran) – سورة آل عمران

“Those who follow the Messenger, the unlettered Prophet (i.e. Muhammad), whom they find written in what they have of At-Tawrat (i.e. the Torah) and Al-Injeel (i.e. the Gospel), who enjoins upon them what is right and forbids them what is wrong and makes lawful for them the good things and prohibits for them the evil and relieves them of their burden and the shackles which were upon them. So they who have believed in him, honored him, supported him and followed the Light which was sent down with him – it is those who will be the successful.

Say, [O Muhammad], “O mankind, indeed I am the Messenger of ALLAH to you all, [from HIM] to WHOM belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. There is no deity except HIM; HE gives life and causes death.” So believe in ALLAH and HIS Messenger, the unlettered Prophet, who believes in ALLAH and HIS Words, and follow him that you may be guided.”

– [7:157-158] 7.Surat Al-‘A`rāf (The Heights) – سورة الأعراف 

“[ALLAH said], “O Messengers, eat from the good foods and work righteousness. Indeed, I, of what you do, am KNOWING.

And indeed this, your religion, is one religion, and I am your LORD, so fear ME.”

But the people divided their religion among them into sects – each faction, in what it has, rejoicing.

So leave them in their confusion for a time.”

– [23:51-54] 23.Surat Al-Mu’minūn (The Believers) – سورة المؤمنون

 

Know your worst enemy; beware, and be sharp about it. ALLAH [S.W.T] disclosed in The Holy Qur’an:

“And [mention] when WE said to the Angels, “Prostrate to Adam,” and they prostrated, except for iblees. He was of the jinn and departed from the command of his LORD. Then will you take him and his descendants as allies other than ME while they are enemies to you? Wretched it is for the wrongdoers as an exchange.”

– [18:50] 18.Surat Al-Kahf (The Cave) – سورة الكهف

“O mankind, remember the favor of ALLAH upon you. Is there any Creator other than ALLAH who provides for you from the heaven and earth? There is no deity except HIM, so how are you deluded?

And if they deny you, [O Muhammad] – already were Messengers denied before you. And to ALLAH are returned [all] matters.

O mankind, indeed the promise of ALLAH is truth, so let not the worldly life delude you and be not deceived about ALLAH by the deceiver.

Indeed, satan is an enemy to you; so take him as an enemy. He only invites his party to be among the companions of the Blaze.

Those who disbelieve will have a severe punishment, and those who believe and do righteous deeds will have forgiveness and great reward.”

– [35:3-7] 35.Surat Fāţir (Originator) – سورة فاطر

“And satan will say when the matter has been concluded, “Indeed, ALLAH had promised you the promise of truth. And I promised you, but I betrayed you. But I had no authority over you except that I invited you, and you responded to me. So do not blame me; but blame yourselves. I cannot be called to your aid, nor can you be called to my aid. Indeed, I deny your association of me [with ALLAH] before. Indeed, for the wrongdoers is a painful punishment.”

– [14:22] 14.Surat ‘Ibrāhīm (Abraham) – سورة ابراهيم

Do not be one of those who are ungrateful to ALLAH [S.W.T] and not sincere in their faith on HIM. About whom ALLAH [S.W.T] states in The Holy Qur’an:

“And if ALLAH was to hasten for the people the evil [they invoke] as HE hastens for them the good, their term would have been ended for them. But WE leave the ones who do not expect the meeting with US, in their transgression, wandering blindly.

And when affliction touches man, he calls upon US, whether lying on his side or sitting or standing; but when WE remove from him his affliction, he continues [in disobedience] as if he had never called upon US to [remove] an affliction that touched him. Thus is made pleasing to the transgressors that which they have been doing.”

– [10: 11-12] 10.Surat Yūnus (Jonah) – سورة يونس

 

The Holy Qur’an and Hadith (Prophetic sayings) both stress the importance of following Islam. ALLAH [S.W.T] states:

“ALLAH Witnesses that there is no deity except HIM, and [so do] the Angels and those of knowledge – [that HE is] maintaining [Creation] in justice. There is no deity except HIM, the EXALTED IN MIGHT, the WISE.

Indeed, the religion in the Sight of ALLAH is Islam. And those who were given the Scripture did not differ except after knowledge had come to them – out of jealous animosity between themselves. And whoever disbelieves in the verses of ALLAH, then indeed, ALLAH is swift in [taking] account.”

– [3:18-19] 3.Surat ‘Āli `Imrān (Family of Imran) – سورة آل عمران

Follow the advice, which had been revealed in The Holy Qur’an-

“O you who have believed, fear ALLAH as HE should be feared and do not die except as Muslims [in submission to HIM].”

– [3:102] 3.Surat ‘Āli `Imrān (Family of Imran) – سورة آل عمران

“O mankind, indeed WE have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the Sight of ALLAH is the most righteous of you. Indeed, ALLAH is KNOWING and ACQUAINTED.”

– [49:13] 49.Surat Al-Ĥujurāt (The Rooms) – سورة الحجرات

The Prophet of ALLAH [S.W.T], may the Peace and Blessing of ALLAH [S.W.T] be upon him, also reported:

“Indeed ALLAH [S.W.T] has forbidden the (Hell) fire for those who say, ‘None has the right to be Worshiped but ALLAH [S.W.T]’ for ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Sake Only.”

(Sahih Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 8: Prayers, Number 417)

 

So my brothers and sisters pray for all of us to ALLAH [S.W.T] to enlist us among one of those righteous about whom ALLAH [S.W.T] said in The Holy Qur’an-

“The Messenger (i.e. Muhammad) has believed in what was revealed to him from his LORD, and [so have] the believers. All of them have believed in ALLAH and HIS Angels and HIS books and HIS Messengers, [saying], “We make no distinction between any of HIS Messengers.” And they say, “We hear and we obey. [We seek] YOUR Forgiveness, our LORD, and to YOU is the [final] destination.””

– [2:285] 2.Surat Al-Baqarah (The Cow) – سورة البقرة

“And obey ALLAH and the Messenger that you may obtain mercy.

And hasten to forgiveness from your LORD and a garden as wide as the heavens and earth, prepared for the righteous

Who spend [in the Cause of ALLAH] during ease and hardship and who restrain anger and who pardon the people – and ALLAH loves the doers of good;

And those who, when they commit an immorality or wrong themselves [by transgression], remember ALLAH and seek forgiveness for their sins – and who can forgive sins except ALLAH? – and [who] do not persist in what they have done while they know.

Those – their reward is forgiveness from their LORD and gardens beneath which rivers flow [in Paradise], wherein they will abide eternally; and excellent is the reward of the [righteous] workers.”

– [3:132-136] 3.Surat ‘Āli `Imrān (Family of Imran) – سورة آل عمران

 

And, let us supplicate to ALLAH [S.W.T], the way HE taught us in The Holy Qur’an-

“Our LORD, do not impose blame upon us if we have forgotten or erred. Our LORD, and lay not upon us a burden like that which YOU laid upon those before us. Our LORD, and burden us not with that which we have no ability to bear. And pardon us; and forgive us; and have mercy upon us. YOU are our PROTECTOR, so give us victory over the disbelieving people.”

– [2:286] 2.Surat Al-Baqarah (The Cow) – سورة البقرة

“[All] praise is [due] to ALLAH, LORD of the worlds –

The ENTIRELY MERCIFUL, the ESPECIALLY MERCIFUL,

SOVEREIGN of the Day of Recompense.

It is YOU we Worship and YOU we ask for help.

Guide us to the straight path –

The path of those upon whom YOU have bestowed favor,

Not of those who have evoked [YOUR] anger or of those who are astray.”

– [1:1-7] 1.Surat Al-Fātiĥah (The Opener) – سورة الفاتحة

“Ameen”

 

We welcome you to Islam, congratulate you for your decision, and will try to help you in every possible way we can Insha’ALLAH.

“This day those who disbelieve have despaired of [defeating] your religion; so fear them not, but fear ME. This day I have perfected for you your religion and completed MY favor upon you and have approved for you Islam as religion.”

– [5:3] 5.Surat Al-Mā’idah (The Table Spread) – سورة المائدة

Some Selected Hadith as Glad Tidings for You and Your New Beginning

Sahih Muslim: Chapter 13, Book 32: Virtue, Good Manners And Joining Of The Ties Of Relationship, Number 6246:

Abu Dharr (R.A) reported:

 ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] as saying that ALLAH [S.W.T], the EXALTED and GLORIOUS, said: MY servants, I have made oppression unlawful for ME and unlawful for you, so do not commit oppression against one another. MY servants, all of you are liable to err except one whom I guide on the right path, so seek right guidance from ME so that I should direct you to the right path. O MY servants, all of you are hungry (needy) except one whom I feed, so beg food from ME, so that I may give that to you. O MY servants, all of you are naked (need clothes) except one whom I provide garments, so beg clothes from ME, so that I should clothe you. O MY servants, you commit error night and day and I am there to pardon your sins, so beg pardon from ME, so that I should grant you pardon. O MY servants, you can neither do ME any harm nor can you do ME any good. O MY servants, even if the first amongst you and the last amongst you and even the whole of human race of yours, and that of jinns even, become (equal in) ALLAH [S.W.T] conscious like the heart of a single person amongst you, nothing would add to MY Power. O MY servants, even if the first amongst you and the last amongst you and the whole human race of yours and that of the jinns too in unison become the most wicked (all beating) like the heart of a single person, it would cause no loss to MY Power. O MY servants, even if the first amongst you and the last amongst you and the whole human race of yours and that of jinns also all stand in one plain ground and you ask ME and I confer upon every person what he asks for, it would not in any way, cause any loss to ME (even less) than that which is caused to the ocean by dipping the needle in it. MY servants, these for you I shall reward you for then, so he who deeds of yours which I am recording finds good should Praise ALLAH and he who does not find that should not blame anyone but his ownself. Sa’id (R.A) said: That when Abu Idris Khaulini (R.A) narrated this hadith he knelt upon his knees.

By ALLAH [S.W.T], they didn’t see YOU.’ ALLAH [S.W.T] says, How it would have been if they saw ME?’ The Angels (P.B.U.T) reply, ‘If they saw YOU, they would Worship YOU more devoutly and celebrate YOUR Glory more deeply, and declare YOUR freedom from any resemblance to anything more often.’ ALLAH [S.W.T] says (to the Angels (P.B.U.T)), ‘What do they ask ME for?’ The Angels (P.B.U.T) reply, ‘They ask YOU for Paradise.’ ALLAH [S.W.T] says (to the Angels (P.B.U.T)), ‘Did they see it?’ The Angels (P.B.U.T) say, ‘No! By ALLAH [S.W.T], O LORD! They did not see it.’ ALLAH [S.W.T] says, How it would have been if they saw it?’ The Angels (P.B.U.T) say, ‘If they saw it, they would have greater covetousness for it and would seek it with greater zeal and would have greater desire for it.’ ALLAH [S.W.T] says, ‘From what do they seek refuge?’ The Angels (P.B.U.T) reply, ‘They seek refuge from the (Hell) Fire.’ ALLAH [S.W.T] says, ‘Did they see it?’ The Angels (P.B.U.T) say, ‘No! By ALLAH [S.W.T], O LORD! They did not see it.’ ALLAH [S.W.T] says, How it would have been if they saw it?’ The Angels (P.B.U.T) say, ‘If they saw it they would flee from it with the extreme fleeing and would have extreme fear from it.’ Then ALLAH [S.W.T] says, ‘I make you witnesses that I have Forgiven them.”‘ ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] added, “One of the Angels (P.B.U.T) would say, ‘There was so-and-so amongst them, and he was not one of them, but he had just come for some need.’ ALLAH [S.W.T] would say, ‘These are those people whose companions will not be reduced to misery.'”

If somebody intends to do a good deed and he does not do it, then ALLAH [S.W.T] will write for him a full good deed (in his account with HIM); and if he intends to do a good deed and actually did it, then ALLAH [S.W.T] will write for him (in his account with HIM) (its reward equal) from ten to seven hundred times to many more times: and if somebody intended to do a bad deed and he does not do it, then ALLAH [S.W.T] will write a full good deed (in his account with HIM), and if he intended to do it (a bad deed) and actually did it, then ALLAH [S.W.T] will write one bad deed (in his account).”

And the most beloved things with which MY slave comes nearer to ME, is what I have enjoined upon him; and MY slave keeps on coming closer to ME through performing Nawafil (praying or doing extra deeds besides what is obligatory) till I love him, so I become his sense of hearing with which he hears, and his sense of sight with which he sees, and his hand with which he grips, and his leg with which he walks; and if he asks ME, I will give him, and if he asks MY Protection (Refuge), I will Protect him; (i.e. give him MY Refuge) and I do not hesitate to do anything as I hesitate to take the soul of the believer, for he hates death, and I hate to disappoint him.”

If he remembers ME in himself, I too, remember him in MYSELF; and if he remembers ME in a group of people, I remember him in a group that is better than they; and if he comes one span nearer to ME, I go one cubit nearer to him; and if he comes one cubit nearer to ME, I go a distance of two outstretched arms nearer to him; and if he comes to ME walking, I go to him running.'”

Narrated Ibn ‘Umar (R.A):

 ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] said, “Your stay (in this world) in comparison to the stay of the nations preceding you, is like the period between ‘Asr prayer and the sun set (in comparison to a whole day). The people of the Torah were given the Torah and they acted on it till midday and then they were unable to carry on. And they were given (a reward equal to) one Qirat each. Then the people of the Gospel were given the Gospel and they acted on it till ‘Asr Prayer and then they were unable to carry on, so they were given a reward equal to) one Qirat each. Then you were given the Qur’an and you acted on it till sunset, therefore you were given (a reward equal to) two Qirats each. On that, the people of the Scriptures said, ‘These people (Muslims) did less work than we but they took a bigger reward.’ ALLAH [S.W.T] said (to them). ‘Have I done any oppression to you as regards your rights?’ They said, “No.” Then ALLAH [S.W.T] said, ‘That is MY Blessing which I grant to whomsoever I Will.'”

2. To offer the (compulsory congregational) Prayers dutifully and perfectly.

3. To pay Zakat (i.e. obligatory charity).

4. To perform Hajj (i.e. Pilgrimage to Mecca).

5. To observe Fast during the month of Ramadan.

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 2: Belief, Number 47:

Narrated Abu Huraira (R.A):

 One day while the Prophet [S.A.W.S] was sitting in the company of some people, (The Angel) Gabriel (P.B.U.H) came and asked, “What is faith?” ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] replied, ‘Faith is to believe in ALLAH [S.W.T], HIS Angels (P.B.U.T), (the) meeting with HIM, HIS Apostles (P.B.U.T), and to believe in Resurrection.” Then he further asked, “What is Islam?” ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] replied, “To Worship ALLAH [S.W.T] Alone and none else, to offer prayers perfectly to pay the compulsory charity (Zakat) and to observe fasts during the month of Ramadan.” Then he further asked, “What is Ihsan (perfection)?” ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] replied, “To Worship ALLAH [S.W.T] as if you see HIM, and if you cannot achieve this state of devotion then you must consider that HE is looking at you.” Then he further asked, “When will the Hour be established?” ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] replied, “The answerer has no better knowledge than the questioner. But I will inform you about its portents.

1. When a slave (lady) gives birth to her master.

2. When the shepherds of black camels start boasting and competing with others in the construction of higher buildings. And the Hour is one of five things which nobody knows except ALLAH [S.W.T]. The Prophet [S.A.W.S] then recited: “Verily, with ALLAH (Alone) is the Knowledge of the Hour–.” (31.34) Then that man (Gabriel (P.B.U.H)) left and the Prophet [S.A.W.S] asked his companions (R.A) to call him back, but they could not see him. Then the Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “That was Gabriel (P.B.U.H) who came to teach the people their religion.” Abu ‘Abdullah (R.A) said: He (the Prophet [S.A.W.S]) considered all that as a part of faith.

Sahih Muslim: Chapter 4, Book 2: Purification (Kitab Al-Taharah), Number 0451:

‘Uqba b. ‘Amir (R.A) reported:

 We were entrusted with the task of tending the camels. On my turn when I came back in the evening after grazing them in the pastures, I found ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] stand and address the people. I heard these words of his: If any Muslim performs ablution well, then stands and prays two rak’ahs setting about them with his heart as well as his face, Paradise would be guaranteed to him. I said: What a fine thing is this! And a narrator who was before me said: The first was better than even this. When I cast a glance, I saw that it was ‘Umar (R.A) who said: I see that you have just come and observed: If anyone amongst you performs the ablution, and then completes the ablution well and then says: I testify that there is no god but ALLAH and that Muhammad [S.A.W.S] is the servant of ALLAH and HIS Messenger, the eight gates of Paradise would be opened for him and he may enter by whichever of them he wishes.

Sahih Muslim: Chapter 131, Book 4: Prayer (Kitab Al-Salat), Number 1756:

‘Uqba b. ‘Amir (R.A) reported:

 When we were in Suffa, the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] came out and said: Which of you would like to go out every morning to Buthan or al-’Aqiq and bring two large she camels without being guilty of sin or without severing the ties of kinship? We said: Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S], we would like to do it. Upon this he said: Does not one of you go out in the morning to the Mosque and teach or recite two verses from the Book of ALLAH [S.W.T], the MAJESTIC and GLORIOUS? That is better for him than two she camels, and three verses are better (than three she camels), and four verses are better for him than four (she camels), and to on their number in camels.

Sahih Muslim: Chapter 132, Book 4: Prayer (Kitab Al-Salat), Number 1757:

Abu Umama (R.A) said he heard:

 ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] say: Recite the Qur’an, for on the Day of Resurrection it will come as an intercessor for those who recite It. Recite the two bright ones, Surah al-Baqara and Surah Al ‘Imran, for on the Day of Resurrection they will come as two clouds or two shades, or two flocks of birds in ranks, pleading for those who recite them. Recite Surah al-Baqara, for to take recourse to it is a blessing and to give it up is a cause of grief, and the magicians cannot confront it. (Mu’awiya (R.A) said: It has been conveyed to me that here Batala means magicians.)

He lifted his head and said: This as a gate opened in heaven today which had never been opened before. Then when an Angel (P.B.U.H) descended through it, he said: This is an Angel (P.B.U.H) who came down to the earth who had never come down before. He greeted and said: Rejoice in two lights given to you which have not been given to any Prophet (P.B.U.T) before you: Falihat al-Kitab (1.1-7) and the concluding verses of Suarah al-Baqara (2.286). You will never recite a letter from them for which you will not be given (a reward).

Nobody would overtake you and you would be better than the people amongst whom you live except those who would do the same. Say, “Subhan-ALLAH”, “Alhamdu-lillah” and “ALLAHU Akbar” thirty three times each after every (compulsory) prayer.” We differed and some of us said that we should say, “Subhan-ALLAH” thirty three times and “Alhamdu lillah” thirty three times and “ALLAHU Akbar” thirty four times.

When I was going to get up, he said, “‘Stay in your places,” and sat between us, till I felt the coolness of the feet on my chest. The Prophet [S.A.W.S] then said, “Shall I not tell you of a thing which is better for you than a servant? When you (both) go to your beds, say ‘ALLAHU Akbar’ thirty-four times, and ‘Subhan ALLAH’ thirty-three times, ‘Alhamdu ‘illah’ thirty-three times, for that is better for you than a servant.” Ibn Sirin (R.A) said, “Subhan ALLAH’ (is to be said for) thirty-four times.”

They observe prayer as we do; they keep the fasts as we keep, and they give sadaqa out of their surplus riches. Upon this he (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) said: Has ALLAH [S.W.T] not prescribed for you (a course) by following which you can (also) do sadaqa? In every declaration of the Glorification of ALLAH [S.W.T] (i.e. saying Subhan ALLAH) there is a sadaqa, and every Takbir (i.e. saying ALLAHU Akbar) is a sadaqa, and every Praise of HIS (saying al-Hamdu Lillah) is a sadaqa and every declaration that HE is ONE (La illha ill-ALLAH) is a sadaqa, and enjoining of good is a sadaqa, and forbidding of that which is evil is a sadaqa, and in man’s sexual intercourse (with his wife,) there is a sadaqa.

Assalamu ‘Alaika aiyuha-n-Nabiyu wa-rahmatu-l-lahi wa-barakatuhu. Assalamu alaina wa-‘ala ‘ibadi-l-lahi as-salihin. Ashhadu an la ilaha illa-l-lah wa ashhadu anna Muhammad an ‘abdu hu wa Rasuluh. (All the Compliments are for ALLAH and all the Prayers and all the Good things (are for ALLAH). Peace be on you, O Prophet, and ALLAH’s Mercy and Blessings (are on you). And Peace be on us and on the good (pious) worshipers of ALLAH. I testify that none has the right to be Worshiped but ALLAH and that Muhammad is HIS slave and Apostle.) So, when you have said this, then you have surely sent the greetings to every good (pious) worshiper of ALLAH [S.W.T], whether he be in the Heaven or on the Earth.”

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 4, Book 55: Prophets (P.B.U.T), Number 589:

Narrated Abdur-Rahman bin Abi Laila (R.A):

 Ka’b bin Ujrah (R.A) met me and said, “Shall I not give you a present I got from the Prophet [S.A.W.S]?” ‘Abdur-Rahman (R.A) said, “Yes, give it to me.” I said, “We asked ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] saying, ‘O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S]! How should one (ask ALLAH [S.W.T] to) send blessings on you, the members of the family, for ALLAH [S.W.T] has taught us how to salute you (in the prayer)?’ He said, ‘Say: O ALLAH! Send YOUR Mercy on Muhammad and on the family of Muhammad, as YOU sent YOUR Mercy on Abraham and on the family of Abraham, for YOU are the MOST PRAISEWORTHY, the MOST GLORIOUS. O ALLAH! Send YOUR Blessings on Muhammad and the family of Muhammad, as YOU sent YOUR Blessings on Abraham and on the family of Abraham, for YOU are the MOST PRAISEWORTHY, the MOST GLORIOUS.'”

Narrated Abu Huraira (R.A):

 A man came to ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] and said, “O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S]! Who is more entitled to be treated with the best companionship by me?” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “Your mother.” The man said. “Who is next?” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “Your mother.” The man further said, “Who is next?” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “Your mother.” The man asked for the fourth time, “Who is next?” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “Your father.”

Narrated Ibn Abbas (R.A):

 The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “No good deeds done on other days are superior to those done on these (first ten days of Dhul Hijja).” Then some companions (R.A) of the Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “Not even Jihad?” He replied, “Not even Jihad, except that of a man who does it by putting himself and his property in danger (for ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Sake) and does not return with any of those things.”

Sahih Muslim: Chapter 28, Book 6: Fasting (Kitab Al-Sawm), Number 2566:

Abu Huraira (R.A) reported:

 ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] as saying: ALLAH [S.W.T], the EXALTED and MAJESTIC said: Every act of the son of Adam (P.B.U.H) is for him, except fasting. It is (exclusively) meant for ME and I (Alone) will reward it. Fasting is a shield. When any one of you is fasting on a day, he should neither indulge in obscene language, nor raise the voice; or if anyone reviles him or tries to quarrel with him he should say: I am a person fasting. By HIM, in WHOSE Hand is the life of Muhammad [S.A.W.S], the breath of the observer of fast is sweeter to ALLAH [S.W.T] on the Day of Judgment than the fragrance of musk. The one who fasts has two (occasions) of joy, one when he breaks the fast he is glad with the breaking of (the fast) and one when he meets his LORD he is glad with his fast.

He then recited this verse: “They forsake (their) beds, calling upon their LORD in fear and in hope, and spend out of what WE have given them. So no soul knows what refreshment of the eyes is hidden for them; a reward for what they did” (32.16-17)

Shall we acquaint the people with this good news?” He said, “Paradise has one-hundred grades which ALLAH [S.W.T] has reserved for the Mujahidin who fight in HIS Cause, and the distance between each of two grades is like the distance between the Heaven and the Earth. So, when you ask ALLAH [S.W.T] (for something), ask for Al-Firdaus which is the best and highest part of Paradise.” (i.e. the sub-narrator added, “I think the Prophet [S.A.W.S] also said, ‘Above it (i.e. Al-Firdaus) is the Throne of BENEFICENT (i.e. ALLAH [S.W.T]), and from it originate the rivers of Paradise.”)

It is reported on the authority of al-Mughira b. Shu’ba (R.A):

 That the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] said: Moses (P.B.U.H) asked his LORD: Who amongst the inhabitants of Paradise is the lowest to rank? HE (ALLAH [S.W.T]) said: The person who would be admitted into Paradise last of all among those deserving of Paradise who are admitted to it. I would be said to him: Enter Paradise. He would say: O my LORD! How (should I enter) while the people have settled in their apartments and taken the shares (portions)? It would be said to him: Would you be pleased if there be for you like the kingdom of a king amongst the kings of the world? He would say: I am pleased my LORD. HE (ALLAH [S.W.T]) would say: For you is that, and like that, and like that, and like that, and that. He would say at the fifth (point): I am well pleased, my LORD. HE (ALLAH [S.W.T]) would say: It is for you and ten times like it, and for you is what your self desires and your eye enjoys. He would say: I am well pleased, my LORD. He (Moses (P.B.U.H)) said: (Which is) the highest of their (inhabitants of Paradise) ranks? HE (ALLAH [S.W.T]) said: They are those Whom I choose. I establish their Honor with MY OWN Hand and then set a seal over it (and they would be Blessed with Bounties) which no eye has seen, no ear has heard and no human mind has perceived: and this is substantiated by the Book of ALLAH [S.W.T], the EXALTED and GREAT: “So no soul knows what delight of the eye is hidden for them; a reward for what they did” (32.17).

 

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 1: Revelation, Number 2:

Narrated ‘Aisha (R.A) (The mother of the faithful believers):

 Al-Harith bin Hisham (R.A) asked ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] “O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S]! How is the Divine Inspiration revealed to you?” ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] replied, “Sometimes it is (revealed) like the ringing of a bell, this form of Inspiration is the hardest of all and then this state passes’ off after I have grasped what is inspired. Sometimes the Angel (P.B.U.H) comes in the form of a man and talks to me and I grasp whatever he says.” ‘Aisha (R.A) added: Verily I saw the Prophet [S.A.W.S] being inspired Divinely on a very cold day and noticed the Sweat dropping from his forehead (as the Inspiration was over).

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 1: Revelation, Number 3:

Narrated ‘Aisha (R.A) (The mother of the faithful believers):

 The commencement of the Divine Inspiration to ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] was in the form of good dreams which came true like bright day light, and then the love of seclusion was bestowed upon him. He used to go in seclusion in the cave of Hira where he used to Worship (ALLAH [S.W.T] Alone) continuously for many days before his desire to see his family. He used to take with him the journey food for the stay and then come back to (his wife) Khadija (R.A) to take his food like-wise again till suddenly the Truth descended upon him while he was in the cave of Hira. The Angel (P.B.U.H) came to him and asked him to read. The Prophet [S.A.W.S] replied, “I do not know how to read. The Prophet [S.A.W.S] added, “The Angel (P.B.U.H) caught me (forcefully) and pressed me so hard that I could not bear it anymore. He then released me and again asked me to read and I replied, ‘I do not know how to read.’ Thereupon he caught me again and pressed me a second time till I could not bear it anymore. He then released me and again asked me to read but again I replied, ‘I do not know how to read (or what shall I read)?’ Thereupon he caught me for the third time and pressed me, and then released me and said, ‘Read in the Name of your LORD, who has Created (all that exists) has created man from a clot. Read! And your LORD is the MOST GENEROUS.” (96.1-3) Then ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] returned with the Inspiration and with his heart beating severely. Then he went to Khadija bint Khuwailid (R.A) and said, “Cover me! Cover me!” They covered him till his fear was over and after that he told her everything that had happened and said, “I fear that something may happen to me.” Khadija (R.A) replied, “Never! By ALLAH [S.W.T], ALLAH [S.W.T] will never disgrace you. You keep good relations with your Kith and kin, help the poor and the destitute, serve your guests generously and assist the deserving calamity-afflicted ones.” Khadija (R.A) then accompanied him to her cousin Waraqa bin Naufal bin Asad bin ‘Abdul ‘Uzza, who, during the Pre-Islamic Period became a Christian and used to write the writing with Hebrew letters. He would write from the Gospel in Hebrew as much as ALLAH [S.W.T] wished him to write. He was an old man and had lost his eyesight. Khadija (R.A) said to Waraqa, “Listen to the story of your nephew, O my cousin!” Waraqa asked, “O my nephew! What have you seen?” ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] described whatever he had seen. Waraqa said, “This is the same one who keeps the secrets (Angel Gabriel (P.B.U.H) whom ALLAH [S.W.T] had sent to Moses (P.B.U.H). I wish I were young and could live up to the time when your people would turn you out.” ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] asked, “Will they drive me out?” Waraqa replied in the affirmative and said, “Anyone (man) who came with something similar to what you have brought was treated with hostility; and if I should remain alive till the day when you will be turned out then I would support you strongly.” But after a few days Waraqa died and the Divine Inspiration was also paused for a while. Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah Al-Ansari (R.A) while talking about the period of pause in Revelation reporting the speech of the Prophet [S.A.W.S] “While I was walking, all of a sudden I heard a voice from the sky. I looked up and saw the same Angel (P.B.U.H) who had visited me at the cave of Hira’ sitting on a chair between the sky and the earth. I got afraid of him and came back home and said, ‘Wrap me (in blankets).’ And then ALLAH [S.W.T] revealed the following Holy Verses (of Qur’an): ‘O you (i.e. Muhammad)! wrapped up in garments!’ Arise and warn (the people against ALLAH’s Punishment),… up to ‘and desert the idols.’ (74.1-5) After this the Revelation started coming strongly, frequently and regularly.”

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 1: Revelation, Number 4:

Narrated Said bin Jubair (R.A):

 Ibn ‘Abbas (R.A) in the explanation of the Statement of ALLAH [S.W.T]. ‘Move not your tongue concerning (the Qur’an) to make haste therewith.” (75.16) Said “ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] used to bear the Revelation with great trouble and used to move his lips (quickly) with the Inspiration.” Ibn ‘Abbas (R.A) moved his lips saying, “I am moving my lips in front of you as ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] used to move his.” Said moved his lips saying: “I am moving my lips, as I saw Ibn ‘Abbas (R.A) moving his.” Ibn ‘Abbas (R.A) added, “So ALLAH [S.W.T] revealed ‘Move not your tongue concerning (the Qur’an) to make haste therewith. It is for US to collect it and to give you (O Muhammad) the ability to recite it (the Qur’an) (75.16-17) which means that ALLAH [S.W.T] will make him (the Prophet [S.A.W.S]) remember the portion of the Qur’an which was revealed at that time by heart and recite it. The Statement of ALLAH [S.W.T]: And ‘When WE have recited it to you (O Muhammad through Gabriel) then you follow its (Qur’an) recital’ (75.18) means ‘listen to it and be silent.’ Then it is for US (ALLAH [S.W.T]) to make It clear to you’ (75.19) means ‘Then it is (for ALLAH [S.W.T]) to make you recite it (and its meaning will be clear by itself through your tongue). Afterwards, ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] used to listen to Gabriel (P.B.U.H) whenever he came and after his departure he used to recite it as Gabriel (P.B.U.H) had recited it.”

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 1: Revelation, Number 5:

Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas (R.A):

 ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] was the most generous of all the people, and he used to reach the peak in generosity in the month of Ramadan when Gabriel (P.B.U.H) met him. Gabriel (P.B.U.H) used to meet him every night of Ramadan to teach him the Qur’an. ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] was the most generous person, even more generous than the strong uncontrollable wind (in readiness and haste to do charitable deeds).

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 1: Revelation, Number 6:

Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbas (R.A):

 Abu Sufyan bin Harb informed me that Heraclius had sent a messenger to him while he had been accompanying a caravan from Quraish. They were merchants doing business in Sham (Syria, Palestine, Lebanon and Jordan), at the time when ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] had truce with Abu Sufyan and Quraish infidels. So Abu Sufyan and his companions went to Heraclius at Ilya (Jerusalem). Heraclius called them in the court and he had all the senior Roman dignitaries around him. He called for his translator who, translating Heraclius’s question said to them, “Who amongst you is closely related to that man who claims to be a Prophet?” Abu Sufyan replied, “I am the nearest relative to him (amongst the group).” Heraclius said, “Bring him (Abu Sufyan) close to me and make his companions stand behind him.” Abu Sufyan added, Heraclius told his translator to tell my companions that he wanted to put some questions to me regarding that man (The Prophet [S.A.W.S]) and that if I told a lie they (my companions) should contradict me.” Abu Sufyan added, “By ALLAH [S.W.T]! Had I not been afraid of my companions labeling me a liar, I would not have spoken the truth about the Prophet [S.A.W.S]. The first question he asked me about him was: ‘What is his family status amongst you?’ I replied, ‘He belongs to a good (noble) family amongst us. ‘Heraclius further asked, ‘Has anybody amongst you ever claimed the same (i.e. to be a Prophet) before him?’ I replied, ‘No.’ He said, ‘Was anybody amongst his ancestors a king?’ I replied, ‘No. ‘Heraclius asked, ‘Do the nobles or the poor follow him?’ I replied, ‘It is the poor who follow him.’ He said, ‘Are his followers increasing decreasing (day by day)?’ I replied, ‘They are increasing.’ He then asked, ‘Does anybody amongst those who embrace his religion become displeased and renounce the religion afterwards?’ I replied, ‘No. ‘Heraclius said, ‘Have you ever accused him of telling lies before his claim (to be a Prophet)?’ I replied, ‘No. ‘Heraclius said, ‘Does he break his promises?’ I replied, ‘No. We are at truce with him but we do not know what he will do in it.’ I could not find opportunity to say anything against him except that. ‘Heraclius asked, ‘Have you ever had a war with him?’ I replied, ‘Yes.’ Then he said, ‘What was the outcome of the battles?’ I replied, ‘Sometimes he was victorious and sometimes we. ‘Heraclius said, ‘What does he order you to do?’ I said, ‘He tells us to Worship ALLAH [S.W.T] and ALLAH [S.W.T] Alone and not to Worship anything along with HIM, and to renounce all that our ancestors had said. He orders us to pray, to speak the truth, to be chaste and to keep good relations with our Kith and kin. ‘Heraclius asked the translator to convey to me the following, I asked you about his family and your reply was that he belonged to a very noble family. In fact all the Apostles (P.B.U.T) come from noble families amongst their respective peoples. I questioned you whether anybody else amongst you claimed such a thing, your reply was in the negative. If the answer had been in the affirmative, I would have thought that this man was following the previous man’s statement. Then I asked you whether anyone of his ancestors was a king. Your reply was in the negative, and if it had been in the affirmative, I would have thought that this man wanted to take back his ancestral kingdom. I further asked whether he was ever accused of telling lies before he said what he said, and your reply was in the negative. So I wondered how a person who does not tell a lie about others could ever tell a lie about ALLAH [S.W.T]. I, then asked you whether the rich people followed him or the poor. You replied that it was the poor who followed him. And in fact all the Apostle (P.B.U.T) have been followed by this very class of people. Then I asked you whether his followers were increasing or decreasing. You replied that they were increasing, and in fact this is the way of true faith, till it is complete in all respects. I further asked you whether there was anybody, who, after embracing his Religion, became displeased and discarded his Religion. Your reply was in the negative, and in fact this is (the sign of) true faith, when its delight enters the hearts and mixes with them completely. I asked you whether he had ever betrayed. You replied in the negative and likewise the Apostles (P.B.U.T) never betray. Then I asked you what he ordered you to do. You replied that he ordered you to Worship ALLAH [S.W.T] and ALLAH [S.W.T] Alone and not to Worship any thing along with HIM and forbade you to Worship idols and ordered you to pray, to speak the truth and to be chaste. If what you have said is true, he will very soon occupy this place underneath my feet and I knew it (from the scriptures) that he was going to appear but I did not know that he would be from you, and if I could reach him definitely, I would go immediately to meet him and if I were with him, I would certainly wash his feet. ‘Heraclius then asked for the letter addressed by ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] which was delivered by Dihya (R.A) to the Governor of Busra, who forwarded it to Heraclius to read. The contents of the letter were as follows: “In the name of ALLAH, the BENEFICENT, the MERCIFUL (This letter is) from Muhammad the slave of ALLAH and HIS Apostle to Heraclius the ruler of Byzantine. Peace be upon him, who follows the right path. Furthermore, I invite you to Islam, and if you become a Muslim you will be safe, and ALLAH will double your reward, and if you reject this invitation of Islam you will be committing a sin by misguiding your Arisiyin (peasants). (And I recite to you ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Statement:) ‘O people of the scripture! Come to a word common to you and us that we Worship none but ALLAH and that we associate nothing in Worship with HIM, and that none of us shall take others as Lords beside ALLAH. Then, if they turn away, say: Bear witness that we are Muslims (those who have surrendered to ALLAH).’ (3:64). Abu Sufyan then added, “When Heraclius had finished his speech and had read the letter, there was a great hue and cry in the Royal Court. So we were turned out of the court. I told my companions that the question of Ibn-Abi-Kabsha) (the Prophet Muhammad [S.A.W.S]) has become so prominent that even the King of Bani Al-Asfar (Byzantine) is afraid of him. Then I started to become sure that he (the Prophet [S.A.W.S]) would be the conqueror in the near future till I embraced Islam (i.e. ALLAH [S.W.T] guided me to it).” The sub narrator adds, “Ibn An-Natur was the Governor of llya’ (Jerusalem) and Heraclius was the head of the Christians of Sham. Ibn An-Natur narrates that once while Heraclius was visiting ilya’ (Jerusalem), he got up in the morning with a sad mood. Some of his priests asked him why he was in that mood? Heraclius was a foreteller and an astrologer. He replied, ‘At night when I looked at the stars, I saw that the leader of those who practice circumcision had appeared (become the conqueror). Who are they who practice circumcision?’ The people replied, ‘Except the Jews nobody practices circumcision, so you should not be afraid of them (Jews). ‘Just Issue orders to kill every Jew present in the country.’ While they were discussing it, a messenger sent by the king of Ghassan to convey the news of ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] to Heraclius was brought in. Having heard the news, he (Heraclius) ordered the people to go and see whether the messenger of Ghassan was circumcised. The people, after seeing him, told Heraclius that he was circumcised. Heraclius then asked him about the Arabs. The messenger replied, ‘Arabs also practice circumcision.’ (After hearing that) Heraclius remarked that sovereignty of the ‘Arabs had appeared. Heraclius then wrote a letter to his friend in Rome who was as good as Heraclius in knowledge. Heraclius then left for Homs. (a town in Syrian and stayed there till he received the reply of his letter from his friend who agreed with him in his opinion about the emergence of the Prophet [S.A.W.S] and the fact that he was a Prophet. On that Heraclius invited all the heads of the Byzantines to assemble in his palace at Homs. When they assembled, he ordered that all the doors of his palace be closed. Then he came out and said, ‘O Byzantines! If success is your desire and if you seek right guidance and want your empire to remain then give a pledge of allegiance to this Prophet (i.e. embrace Islam).’ (On hearing the views of Heraclius) the people ran towards the gates of the palace like onagers but found the doors closed. Heraclius realized their hatred towards Islam and when he lost the hope of their embracing Islam, he ordered that they should be brought back in audience. (When they returned) he said, ‘What already said was just to test the strength of your conviction and I have seen it.’ The people prostrated before him and became pleased with him, and this was the end of Heraclius’s story (in connection with his faith).

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 2: Belief, Number 17:

Narrated ‘Ubada bin As-Samit (R.A):

 Who took part in the battle of Badr and was a Naqib (a person heading a group of six persons), on the night of Al-‘Aqaba pledge: ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S], said while a group of his companions (R.A) were around him, “Swear allegiance to me for:

2. Not to steal.

3. Not to commit illegal sexual intercourse.

4. Not to kill your children.

5. Not to accuse an innocent person (to spread such an accusation among people).

6. Not to be disobedient (when ordered) to do good deed.”

The Prophet [S.A.W.S] added: “Whoever among you fulfills his pledge will be rewarded by ALLAH [S.W.T]. And whoever indulges in any one of them (except the ascription of partners to ALLAH [S.W.T]) and gets the punishment in this world, that punishment will be an expiation for that sin. And if one indulges in any of them, and ALLAH [S.W.T] conceals his sin, it is up to HIM to forgive or punish him (in the Hereafter).” ‘Ubada bin As-Samit (R.A) added: “So we swore allegiance for these.” (Points to ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S])

Indeed, one of them never saved himself from being soiled with his urine while the other used to go about with calumnies (to make enmity between friends). The Prophet [S.A.W.S] then asked for a green leaf of a date-palm tree, broke it into two pieces and put one on each grave. On being asked why he had done so, he replied, “I hope that their torture might be lessened, till these get dried.”

When it rains the water flows in the valley between me and my people so I cannot go to their Mosque to lead them in prayer. O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S]! I wish you would come to my house and pray in it so that I could take that place as a Musalla. ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] said. “ALLAH willing, I will do so.” Next day after the sun rose high, ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] and Abu Bakr (R.A) came and ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] asked for permission to enter. I gave him permission and he did not sit on entering the house but said to me, “Where do you like me to pray?” I pointed to a place in my house. So ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] stood there and said, ‘ALLAHU Akbar’, and we all got up and aligned behind him and offered a two-Rak’at prayer and ended it with Taslim. We requested him to stay for a meal called “Khazira” which we had prepared for him. Many members of our family gathered in the house and one of them said, “Where is Malik bin Al-Dukhaishin or Ibn Al-Dukhshun?” One of them replied, “He is a hypocrite and does not love ALLAH [S.W.T] and HIS Apostle [S.A.W.S].” Hearing that, ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] said, “Do not say so. Haven’t you seen that he said, ‘None has the right to be Worshiped but ALLAH [S.W.T]’ for ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Sake Only?” He said, “ALLAH [S.W.T] and HIS Apostle [S.A.W.S] know better. We have seen him helping and advising hypocrites.” ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] said, “ALLAH [S.W.T] has forbidden the (Hell) fire for those who say, ‘None has the right to be Worshiped but ALLAH [S.W.T]’ for ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Sake Only.”

 ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] said, “I have been given five things which were not given to any amongst the Prophets (P.B.U.T) before me. These are:

1. ALLAH [S.W.T] made me victorious by awe (by HIS frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month’s journey.

2. The earth has been made for me (and for my followers) a place for praying and a thing to perform Tayammum. Therefore, my followers can pray wherever the time of a prayer is due.

3. The booty has been made Halal (lawful) for me (and was not made so for anyone else).

4. Every Prophet (P.B.U.T) used to be sent to his nation exclusively but I have been sent to all mankind.

5. I have been given the right of intercession (on the Day of Resurrection.)

 ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] said, “The reward of the prayer offered by a person in congregation is twenty five times greater than that of the prayer offered in one’s house or in the market (alone). And this is because if he performs ablution and does it perfectly and then proceeds to the Mosque with the sole intention of praying, then for every step he takes towards the Mosque, he is upgraded one degree in reward and his one sin is taken off (crossed out) from his accounts (of deeds). When he offers his prayer, the Angels (P.B.U.T) keep on asking ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Blessings and ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Forgiveness for him as long as he is (staying) at his Musalla. They say, ‘O ALLAH! Bestow YOUR Blessings upon him, be Merciful and Kind to him.’ And one is regarded in prayer as long as one is waiting for the prayer.”

If his parents are Muslims, particularly the father, even if his mother were a non-Muslim, and if he after the delivery cries (even once) before his death (i.e. born alive) then the funeral prayer must be offered. And if the child does not cry after his delivery (i.e. born dead) then his funeral prayer should not be offered, and he will be considered as a miscarriage. Abu Huraira (R.A) narrated that the Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “Every child is born with a true faith (i.e. to Worship none but ALLAH [S.W.T] Alone) but his parents convert him to Judaism or to Christianity or to Magainism, as an animal delivers a perfect baby animal. Do you find it mutilated?” Then Abu Huraira (R.A) recited the holy verses: ‘The pure ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Islamic nature (true faith i.e. to Worship none but ALLAH [S.W.T] Alone), with which HE has created human beings.'” (30.30).

Say: None has the right to be Worshiped but ALLAH [S.W.T], a sentence with which I shall be a witness (i.e. argue) for you before ALLAH [S.W.T]. Abu Jahl and ‘Abdullah bin Abi Umaiya said, O Abu Talib! Are you going to denounce the religion of Abdul Muttalib?” ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] kept on inviting Abu Talib to say it (i.e. ‘None has the right to be Worshiped but ALLAH [S.W.T] while they (Abu Jahl and Abdullah) kept on repeating their statement till Abu Talib said as his last statement that he was on the religion of Abdul Muttalib and refused to say, ‘None has the right to be Worshiped but ALLAH [S.W.T].’ (Then ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] said, “I will keep on asking ALLAH [S.W.T]’s forgiveness for you unless I am forbidden (by ALLAH [S.W.T]) to do so.” So ALLAH [S.W.T] revealed (the verse) concerning him (i.e. It is not fitting for the Prophet (P.B.U.T) and those who believe that they should invoke (ALLAH [S.W.T]) for forgiveness for pagans even though they be of kin, after it has become clear to them that they are companions of the fire (9.113).

And whoever commits suicide with piece of iron will be punished with the same piece of iron in the Hell Fire.” Narrated Jundab (R.A) the Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “A man was inflicted with wounds and he committed suicide, and so ALLAH [S.W.T] said: MY slave has caused death on himself hurriedly, so I forbid Paradise for him.”

First of all invite them to Worship ALLAH [S.W.T] (Alone) and when they come to know ALLAH [S.W.T], inform them that ALLAH [S.W.T] has enjoined on them, five prayers in every day and night; and if they start offering these prayers, inform them that ALLAH [S.W.T] has enjoined on them, the Zakat.

Inform me what ALLAH [S.W.T] has made compulsory for me as regards the prayers.” He replied: “You have to offer perfectly the five compulsory prayers in a day and night (24 hours), unless you want to pray Nawafil.” The bedouin further asked, “Inform me what ALLAH [S.W.T] has made compulsory for me as regards fasting.” He replied, “You have to fast during the whole month of Ramadan, unless you want to fast more as Nawafil.” The bedouin further asked, “Tell me how much Zakat ALLAH [S.W.T] has enjoined on me.” Thus, ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] informed him about all the rules (i.e. fundamentals) of Islam. The bedouin then said, “By HIM WHO has honored you, I will neither perform any Nawafil nor will I decrease what ALLAH [S.W.T] has enjoined on me. ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] said, “If he is saying the truth, he will succeed (or he will be granted Paradise).”

Narrated Abu Huraira (R.A):

 ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] deputed me to keep Sadaqat (al-Fitr) of Ramadan. A comer came and started taking handfuls of the foodstuff (of the Sadaqa) (stealthily). I took hold of him and said, “By ALLAH [S.W.T], I will take you to ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S].” He said, “I am needy and have many dependents, and I am in great need.” I released him, and in the morning ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] asked me, “What did your prisoner do yesterday?” I said, “O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S]! The person complained of being needy and of having many dependents, so, I pitied him and let him go.” ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] said, “Indeed, he told you a lie and he will be coming again.” I believed that he would show up again as ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] had told me that he would return. So, I waited for him watchfully. When he (showed up and) started stealing handfuls of foodstuff, I caught hold of him again and said, “I will definitely take you to ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S]. He said, “Leave me, for I am very needy and have many dependents. I promise I will not come back again.” I pitied him and let him go. In the morning ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] asked me, “What did your prisoner do.” I replied, “O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S]! He complained of his great need and of too many dependents, so I took pity on him and set him free.” ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] said, “Verily, he told you a lie and he will return.” I waited for him attentively for the third time, and when he (came and) started stealing handfuls of the foodstuff, I caught hold of him and said, “I will surely take you to ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] as it is the third time you promise not to return, yet you break your promise and come.” He said, “(Forgive me and) I will teach you some words with which ALLAH [S.W.T] will benefit you.” I asked, “What are they?” He replied, “Whenever you go to bed, recite “Ayat-al-Kursi”– ‘Allahu la ilaha illa huwa-l-Haiy-ul Qaiyum’ till you finish the whole verse. (If you do so), ALLAH [S.W.T] will appoint a guard for you who will stay with you and no satan will come near you till morning.” So, I released him. In the morning, ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] asked, “What did your prisoner do yesterday?” I replied, “He claimed that he would teach me some words by which ALLAH [S.W.T] will benefit me, so I let him go.” ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] asked, “What are they?” I replied, “He said to me, ‘Whenever you go to bed, recite Ayat-al-Kursi from the beginning to the end —- Allahu la ilaha illa huwa-l-Haiy-ul-Qaiyum—-.’ He further said to me, ‘(If you do so), ALLAH [S.W.T] will appoint a guard for you who will stay with you, and no satan will come near you till morning.’ (Abu Huraira (R.A) or another sub-narrator) added that they (the Companions (R.A)) were very keen to do good deeds. The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “He really spoke the truth, although he is an absolute liar.

Do you forbid me the provision which ALLAH [S.W.T] has provided me?'” Ahban (R.A) added, “I clapped my hands and said, ‘By ALLAH [S.W.T], I have never seen anything more curious and wonderful than this!’ On that the wolf said, ‘There is something (more curious) and wonderful than this; that is, ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] in those palm trees, inviting people to ALLAH [S.W.T] (i.e. Islam).’ “Unais bin ‘Amr (R.A) further said, “Then Ahban (R.A) went to ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] and informed him what happened and embraced Islam.)” Palm trees or other trees and share the fruits with me.”

1. A man possessed superfluous water, on a way and he withheld it from travelers.

2. A man who gave a pledge of allegiance to a ruler and he gave it only for worldly benefits. If the ruler gives him something he gets satisfied, and if the ruler withholds something from him, he gets dissatisfied.

3. And man displayed his goods for sale after the ‘Asr prayer and he said, ‘By ALLAH [S.W.T], except WHOM None has the right to be Worshiped, I have been given so much for my goods,’ and somebody believes him (and buys them).” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] then recited: “Verily!

He said, ‘I do not remember, except that I used to trade with the people in the world and I used to give a respite to the rich and forgive the poor (among my debtors).

 The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “We are the last (to come) but we will be the foremost on the Day of Resurrection, nations were given the Book (i.e. Scripture) before us, and we were given the Holy Book after them. This (i.e. Friday) is the day about which they differed. So the next day (i.e. Saturday) was prescribed for the Jews and the day after it (i.e. Sunday) for the Christians. It is incumbent on every Muslim to wash his head and body on a Day (i.e. Friday) (at least) in every seven days.”

 The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “The Hour will not be established till you fight a nation wearing hairy shoes, and till you fight the Turks, who will have small eyes, red faces and flat noses; and their faces will be like flat shields. And you will find that the best people are those who hate responsibility of ruling most of all till they are chosen to be the rulers. And the people are of different natures: The best in the pre-Islamic period are the best in Islam. A time will come when any of you will love to see me rather than to have his family and property doubled.”

By ALLAH [S.W.T], I am not afraid that you will Worship others along with ALLAH [S.W.T], but I am afraid that you will envy and fight one another for worldly fortunes.”

 The people used to ask ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] about good, but I used to ask him about evil for fear that it might overtake me. Once I said, “O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S]! We were in ignorance and in evil and ALLAH [S.W.T] has bestowed upon us the present good; will there by any evil after this good?” He said, “Yes.” I asked, “Will there be good after that evil?” He said, “Yes, but it would be tainted with Dakhan (i.e. little evil).” I asked, “What will its Dakhan be?” He said, “There will be some people who will lead (people) according to principles other than my tradition. You will see their actions and disapprove of them.” I said, “Will there by any evil after that good?” He said, “Yes, there will be some people who will invite others to the doors of Hell, and whoever accepts their invitation to it will be thrown in it (by them).” I said, “O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S]! Describe those people to us.” He said, “They will belong to us and speak our language” I asked, “What do you order me to do if such a thing should take place in my life?” He said, “Adhere to the group of Muslims and their Chief.” I asked, “If there is neither a group (of Muslims) nor a chief (what shall I do)?” He said, “Keep away from all those different sects, even if you had to bite (i.e. eat) the root of a tree, till you meet ALLAH [S.W.T] while you are still in that state.”

This is good.’ He who is amongst those who pray will be called from the gate of the prayer (in Paradise) and he who is from the people of Jihad will be called from the gate of Jihad, and he who is from those’ who give in charity (i.e. Zakat) will be called from the gate of charity, and he who is amongst those who observe fast will be called from the gate of fasting, the gate of Raiyan.” Abu Bakr (R.A) said, “He who is called from all those gates will need nothing,” He added, “Will anyone be called from all those gates, O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S]?” He said, “Yes, and I hope you will be among those, O Abu Bakr (R.A).”

Narrated Ibn Umar (R.A):

 We were talking about Hajjat-ul-Wada, while the Prophet [S.A.W.S] was amongst us. We did not know what Hajjat-ul-Wada’ signified. The Prophet [S.A.W.S] Praised ALLAH [S.W.T] and then mentioned Al-Masih Ad-dajjal and described him extensively, saying, “ALLAH [S.W.T] did not send any Prophet (P.B.U.T) but that Prophet (P.B.U.T) warned his nation of Al-Masih Ad-dajjal. Noah (P.B.U.H) and the Prophets (P.B.U.T) following him warned (their people) of him. He will appear amongst you (O Muhammad [S.A.W.S]’s followers), and if it happens that some of his qualities may be hidden from you, but your LORD’s State is clear to you and not hidden from you. The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said it thrice. Verily, your LORD is not blind in one eye, while he (i.e. Ad-dajjal) is blind in the right eye, which looks like a grape bulging out (of its cluster). No doubt! ALLAH [S.W.T] has made your blood and your properties sacred to one another like the sanctity of this day of yours, in this town of yours, in this month of yours.” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] added: No doubt! Haven’t I conveyed ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Message to you?” They replied, “Yes,” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said thrice, “O ALLAH [S.W.T]! Be witness for it.” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] added, “Woe to you!” (or said), “May ALLAH [S.W.T] be merciful to you! Do not become infidels after me (i.e. my death) by cutting the necks (throats) of one another.”

Narrated Anas (R.A):

 ‘Abdullah bin Salam (R.A) heard the news of the arrival of ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] (at Medina) while he was on a farm collecting its fruits. So he came to The Prophet [S.A.W.S] and said, “I will ask you about three things which nobody knows unless he be a Prophet. Firstly, what is the first portent of the Hour? What is the first meal of the people of Paradise? And what makes a baby look like its father or mother?’. The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “Just now Gabriel (P.B.U.H) has informed me about that.” ‘Abdullah (R.A) said, “Gabriel (P.B.U.H.)?” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “Yes.” ‘Abdullah (R.A) said, “He, among the Angels (P.B.U.T) is the enemy of the Jews.” On that The Prophet [S.A.W.S] recited this Holy Verse:– “Whoever is an enemy to Gabriel (P.B.U.H) (let him die in his fury!) for he has brought it (i.e. Qur’an) down to your heart by ALLAH [S.W.T]’s permission.” (2.97) Then he added, “As for the first portent of the Hour, it will be a fire that will collect the people from the East to West. And as for the first meal of the people of Paradise, it will be the caudite (i.e. extra) lobe of the fish liver. And if a man’s discharge proceeded that of the woman, then the child resembles the father, and if the woman’s discharge proceeded that of the man, then the child resembles the mother.” On hearing that, ‘Abdullah (R.A) said, “I testify that None has the right to be Worshiped but ALLAH [S.W.T], and that you are the Apostle of ALLAH [S.W.T], O, ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S]; the Jews are liars, and if they should come to know that I have embraced Islam, they would accuse me of being a liar.” In the meantime, some Jews came (to The Prophet [S.A.W.S]) and he asked them, “What is ‘Abdullah (R.A)’s status amongst you?” They replied, “He is the best amongst us, and he is our chief and the son of our chief.” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “What would you think if ‘Abdullah bin Salam (R.A) embraced Islam?” They replied, “May ALLAH [S.W.T] protect him from this!” Then ‘Abdullah (R.A) came out and said, “I testify that none has the right to be Worshiped but ALLAH [S.W.T] and that Muhammad [S.A.W.S] is the Apostle of ALLAH [S.W.T].” The Jews then said, “Abdullah (R.A) is the worst of us and the son of the worst of us,” and disparaged him. On that ‘Abdullah (R.A) said, “O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S]! This is what I was afraid of!”

The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “That was As-Sakina (tranquility) which descended because of (the recitation of) the Qur’an.”

A Prophet (P.B.U.H) would pass by accompanied by nobody. Then a big crowd of people passed in front of me and I asked, Who are they? Are they my followers?” It was said, ‘No. It is Moses (P.B.U.H) (and his followers. It was said to me, ‘Look at the horizon.” Behold! There was a multitude of people filling the horizon. Then it was said to me, ‘Look there and there about the stretching sky! Behold! There was a multitude filling the horizon,’ It was said to me, ‘This is your nation out of whom seventy thousand shall enter Paradise without reckoning.’ “Then The Prophet [S.A.W.S] entered his house without telling his companions (R.A) who they (the 70,000) were. So the people started talking about the issue and said, “It is we who have believed in ALLAH [S.W.T] and followed HIS Apostle [S.A.W.S]; therefore those people are either ourselves or our children who are born in the Islamic era, for we were born in the Pre-Islamic Period of Ignorance.” When The Prophet [S.A.W.S] heard of that, he came out and said. “Those people are those who do not treat themselves with Ruqya, nor do they believe in bad or good omen (from birds etc.) nor do they get themselves branded (Cauterized) but they put their trust (Only) in their LORD ” On that ‘Ukasha bin Muhsin (R.A) said. “Am I one of them, O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S]?’ The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “Yes.” Then another person got up and said, “Am I one of them?” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, ‘Ukasha (R.A) has anticipated you.”

(Ibn Mas’ud (R.A) added): ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] said, “ALLAH [S.W.T] is more pleased with the repentance of HIS slave than a man who encamps at a place where his life is jeopardized, but he has his riding beast carrying his food and water. He then rests his head and sleeps for a short while and wakes to find his riding beast gone. (He starts looking for it) and suffers from severe heat and thirst or what ALLAH [S.W.T] wished (him to suffer from).

If you come to some people who are engaged in a talk, don’t start interrupting their talk by preaching, lest you should cause them to be bored. You should rather keep quiet, and if they ask you, then preach to them at the time when they are eager to hear what you say.

O ALLAH [S.W.T]! Wash away my sins with the water of snow and hail, and cleanse my heart from the sins as a white garment is cleansed of filth, and let there be a far away distance between me and my sins as YOU have set far away the East and the West from each other.”

 ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] said, “The thing I am afraid of most for your sake, is the worldly blessings which ALLAH [S.W.T] will bring forth to you.” It was said, “What are the blessings of this world?” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “The pleasures of the world.” A man said, “Can the good bring forth evil?” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] kept quiet for a while till we thought that he was being inspired divinely. Then he started removing the sweat from his forehead and said,” Where is the questioner?” That man said, “I (am present).” Abu Sa’id (R.A) added: We thanked the man when the result (of his question) was such. The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “Good never brings forth but good. This wealth (of the world) is (like) green and sweet (fruit), and all the vegetation which grows on the bank of a stream either kills or nearly kills the animal that eats too much of it, except the animal that eats the Khadira (a kind of vegetation). Such an animal eats till its stomach is full and then it faces the sun and starts ruminating and then it passes out dung and urine and goes to eat again. This worldly wealth is (like) sweet (fruit), and if a person earns it (the wealth) in a legal way and spends it properly, then it is an excellent helper, and whoever earns it in an illegal way, he will be like the one who eats but is never satisfied.”

There is none among us but loves his own wealth more.” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “So his wealth is whatever he spends (in ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Cause) during his life (on good deeds) while the wealth of his heirs is whatever he leaves after his death.”

Had the non-believer known of all the Mercy which is in the Hands of ALLAH [S.W.T], he would not lose hope of entering Paradise, and had the believer known of all the punishment which is present with ALLAH [S.W.T], he would not consider himself safe from the Hell-Fire.”

A group of them obeyed him and went out at night, slowly and stealthily and were safe, while another group did not believe him and thus the army took them in the morning and destroyed them.”

But that will be the time when ‘No good it will do to a soul to believe then. If it believed not before..”‘ (6.158) The Hour will be established (so suddenly) that two persons spreading a garment between them will not be able to finish their bargain, nor will they be able to fold it up.

He therefore loves the meeting with ALLAH [S.W.T], and ALLAH [S.W.T] (too) loves the meeting with him. But when the time of the death of a disbeliever approaches, he receives the evil news of ALLAH [S.W.T]’s torment and HIS Requital, whereupon nothing is more hateful to him than what is before him. Therefore, he hates the meeting with ALLAH [S.W.T], and ALLAH [S.W.T] too, hates the meeting with him.”

(1) a man who takes a false oath that he has been offered for a commodity a price greater than what he has actually been offered;

(2) and a man who takes a false oath after the ‘Asr (prayer) in order to grab the property of a Muslim through it;

(3) and a man who forbids others to use the remaining superfluous water. To such a man ALLAH [S.W.T] will say on the Day of Resurrection, ‘Today I withhold MY Blessings from you as you withheld the superfluous part of that (water) which your hands did not create.'”

Then he said, “Isn’t it Dhul-Hijja?” We said, “Yes.” He asked “What town is this?” We said, “ALLAH [S.W.T] and HIS Apostle [S.A.W.S] know (it) better.’ Then he kept quiet so long that we thought he might call it by another name. He then said, “Isn’t it the (forbidden) Town (Mecca)?” We said, “Yes.” He asked, “What is the day today?” We said, “ALLAH [S.W.T] and HIS Apostle [S.A.W.S] know (it) better. Then he kept quiet so long that we thought that he might call it by another name. Then he said, “Isn’t it the Day of An-Nahr (slaughtering of sacrifices)?” We said, “Yes.” Then he said, “Your blood (lives), your properties,” (the sub narrator Muhammad (R.A), said: I think he also said): “..and your honor) are as sacred to one another like the sanctity of this Day of yours, in this Town of yours, in this Month of yours. You shall meet your LORD and HE will ask you about your deeds. Beware! Don’t go astray after me by striking the necks of one another. Lo! It is incumbent upon those who are present to inform it to those who are absent for perhaps the informed one might comprehend it (understand it) better than some of the present audience.” Whenever the sub-narrator Muhammad (R.A) mentioned that statement, he would say, “The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said the truth.”) And then the Prophet [S.A.W.S] added, “No doubt! Haven’t I conveyed ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Message to you! No doubt! Haven’t I conveyed ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Message to you?”

It said: ‘Yes, ‘O my LORD.’ ALLAH [S.W.T] said (to it), ‘That is for you.” And then Abu Huraira (R.A) recited the Verse:– “Would you then if you were given the authority, do mischief in the land, and sever your ties of kinship.” (47.22)

ALLAH [S.W.T] has told you that the people of the Scriptures have changed some of ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Books and distorted it and wrote something with their own hands and said, ‘This is from ALLAH [S.W.T], so as to have a minor gain for it. Won’t the knowledge that has come to you stop you from asking them? No, by ALLAH [S.W.T], we have never seen a man from them asking you about that (the Book Al-Qur’an) which has been revealed to you.

He said: The Prophet [S.A.W.S] came there, and those amongst the Companions (R.A) whom ALLAH [S.W.T] willed also accompanied him. He entered (my place) and offered prayer at my residence and his companions (R.A) began to talk amongst themselves (and this conversation centered round hypocrites), and then the conspicuous one, Malik b. Dukhshum was made the target and they wished that he (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) should curse him and he should die or he should meet some calamity.

Dukhshum not testify the fact that there is no god but ALLAH [S.W.T] and verily I am the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T].

At the conclusion of prayer he turned towards people and observed: Do you know what your LORD has said? They replied: ALLAH [S.W.T] and HIS Messenger know best. Upon this he (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) remarked: HE (ALLAH [S.W.T]) said: Some of MY bondsmen entered the morning as MY believers and some as unbelievers. He who said: We have had a rainfall due to the Blessing and Mercy of ALLAH [S.W.T], he is MY believer and a disbeliever of stars, and who said: We have had a rainfall due to the rising of such and such (star) disbelieved ME and affirmed his faith in the stars.

 That the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] observed: O womenfolk, you should give charity and ask much forgiveness for I saw you in bulk amongst the dwellers of Hell. A wise lady among them said: Why is it, Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S], that our folk is in bulk in Hell? Upon this the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S] observed: You curse too much and are ungrateful to your spouses. I have seen none lacking in common sense and failing in religion but (at the same time) robbing the wisdom of the wise, besides you. Upon this the woman remarked: What is wrong with our common sense and with religion? He (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) observed: Your lack of common sense (can be well judged from the fact) that the evidence of two women is equal to one man, that is a proof of the lack of common sense, and you spend some nights (and days) in which you do not offer prayer and in the month of Ramadan (during the days) you do not observe fast, that is a failing in religion.

They said: ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S], how would you recognize those persons of your Ummah who have not yet been born? He said: Suppose a man had horses with white blazes on foreheads and legs among horses which were all black, tell me, would he not recognize his own horses? They said: Certainly. ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S]. He said: They would come with white faces and arms and legs owing to ablution, and I would arrive at the Cistern before them. Some people would be driven away from my Cistern as the stray camel is driven away. I would call out. Come, come. Then it would be said (to me): These people changed themselves after you, and I would say: Be off, be off.

There is a good piece of land which receives the rainfall (eagerly) and as a result of it there is grown in it herbage and grass abundantly. Then there is a land hard and barren which retains water and the people derive benefit from it and they drink it and make the animals drink. Then there is another land which is barren. Neither water is retained in it, nor is the grass grown in it. And that is the similitude of the first one who develops the understanding of the religion of ALLAH [S.W.T] and it becomes a source of benefit to him with which ALLAH [S.W.T] sent me. (The second one is that) who acquires the knowledge of religion and imparts it to others. (Then the other type is) one who does not pay attention to (the revealed knowledge) and thus does not accept guidance of ALLAH [S.W.T] with which I have been sent.

 While a Jew was selling goods, he was given something which he did not accept or he did not agree (to accept) that ‘Abdul ‘Aziz (R.A) (one of the narrators) is doubtful about it. He (the Jew) said: By ALLAH [S.W.T], WHO chose Moses (P.B.U.H) among mankind.

The Jew went to ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] and said: Abu’l-Qasim [S.A.W.S], I am a Dhimmi and (thus need your protection) by a covenant, and added: Such and such person has given a blow upon my face.

When the horn will be blown and whatever is in the heavens and the earth would swoon but he whom ALLAH [S.W.T] grants exception, then another horn will be blown and I would be the first amongst those who would recover and Moses (P.B.U.H) would be catching hold of the Throne and I do not know whether it is a compensation for that when he swooned on the Day of Tur or he would be resurrected before me and I do not say that anyone is more excellent than Yunus son of Matta (P.B.U.H). This hadith has been narrated on the authority of Abu Salama (R.A) with the same chain of transmitters.

I said: ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S], we observed evening prayer with you, then we said: Let us sit down and observe night prayer along with you, whereupon he said: You have done well or you have done right. He then lifted his head towards the sky and it often happened that as he lifted his head towards the sky, he said: The stars are a source of security for the sky and when the stars disappear there comes to the sky, i.e. (it meets the same fate) as it has been promised (it would plunge into darkness). And I am a source of safety and security to my Companions (R.A) and when I would go away there would fall to the lot (of my companions (R.A)) as they have been promised with and my companions (R.A) are a source of security for the Ummah and as they would go there would fall to the lot of my Ummah as (its people) have been promised.

He (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) said: The poor of my Ummah would be he who would come on the Day of Resurrection with prayers and fasts and Zakat but (he would find himself bankrupt on that day as he would have exhausted his funds of virtues) since he hurled abuses upon others, brought calumny against others and unlawfully consumed the wealth of others and shed the blood of others and beat others, and his virtues would be credited to the account of one (who suffered at his hand). And if his good deeds fall short to clear the account, then his sins would be entered in (his account) and he would be thrown in the Hell-Fire.

He said: It is ALLAH [S.W.T] Alone WHO knows what they would be doing.

Thereupon ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] said: I recited four words three times after I left you and if these are to be weighed against what you have recited since morning these would outweigh them and (these words) are: “Hallowed be ALLAH and Praise is due to HIM according to the number of HIS Creation and according to the pleasure of HIS SELF and according to the weight of HIS Throne and according to the ink (used in recording) Words (for HIS Praise).”

Jami’ at-Tirmidhi: Chapter 1, Book 4: The Book on the Day of Friday, Hadith 4:

Abu Huraira (R.A) narrated:

 “ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] said: The best day that the sun has risen upon is Friday. On it Adam (P.B.U.H) was created, on it he entered Paradise, and on it, he was sent down from it. And in it there is an hour in which the Muslim worshipper would not stand in Salat, asking ALLAH [S.W.T] for anything except that HE would give it to him.'” Abu Huraira (R.A) said: “I met Abdullah bin Salam (R.A), and I mentioned this Hadith to him. He said: ‘I am more knowledgeable about that hour.’ So I said: ‘Inform me about it, and do not keep any of it from me.’ He said: ‘It is after al-Asr until the sun has set.’ I said: ‘How can it be after Al-Asr when ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] said: ‘the Muslim worshipper would not stand in Salat.’ And that is a time that prayer is not performed in?” So Abdullah bin Salam (R.A) said: ‘Didn’t ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] say: “Whoever sat in a gathering awaiting the Salat then he is in Salat”? I said: ‘Of course.’ He said: ‘Then that is it.'”

 

“Our LORD, YOU did not Create this (i.e. the Creation) aimlessly; Exalted are YOU [above such a thing]; then protect us from the punishment of the Fire.

Our LORD, indeed whoever YOU admit to the Fire – YOU have disgraced him, and for the wrongdoers there are no helpers.

Our LORD, indeed we have heard a caller calling to faith, [saying], ‘Believe in your LORD,’ and we have believed. Our LORD, so Forgive us our sins and Remove from us our misdeeds and cause us to die with the righteous.

Our LORD, and grant us what YOU promised us through YOUR Messengers and do not disgrace us on the Day of Resurrection. Indeed, YOU do not fail in [YOUR] promise.”

– [3:191-194] 3.Surat ‘Āli `Imrān (Family of Imran) – سورة آل عمران

 

“So which of the favors of your LORD would you deny?”

– [55:61] 55.Surat Ar-Raĥmān (The Beneficent) – سورة الرحمن

    Assalamu Alakum Wa Rahmatulah Wa Barakatuh,
    I am a revert of 4 years, i have been to Mekkah and I can say i am a proud Muslim, people who say this about us should not the facts before blurting out, we only tell the truth, as the punishment from ” Allah” is great, i would like to say that all of the brothers & sisters within Islam have one common goal to strive to be good, faithful and above all stay true to the right path, i would like to leave this note for anyone who has misconceptions about Islam, To conclude I would like to think that no matter who you are or where you are from that you can see the goodness in everybody no matter what, don’t be judgmental in respect to that person, and give them the respect they deserve.
    We are all a book of sorts, when you look at the cover you might not like what you see, but when you open it up and start reading the pages inside you find that what you thought at first was completely wrong and your opinion has changed for the better.

      All Praise Due To ALLAH. And Glory be to ALLAH; to WHOM we belong and to WHOM we destined to return.

      First of all I would like to give you thanks for hating us.
      Looks like you already made your final decision, then there is no point to inform you anything. But let me make you something very clear first of all your comment is full of hatred biased and itself a lie.

      Islam means submission to the Will of ALLAH [S.W.T]. And Muslim means those who submit themselves to the Will of ALLAH [S.W.T]. A lie is not part of the characteristics of a Muslim and neither its good in the sight of ALLAH [S.W.T]. Just because of few people who called themselves Muslim and doing bad deeds it does not mean rest of the Muslim are like them or Islam teach them anything like it. By judging few people if you judge rest of the Muslim; then what we Muslim should call you all by the judging what Hitler had done in world war? And other had done in recent time?

      But you don’t worry we Muslim will not judge you or call you the same way you did, you know why? Because, we are Muslim and we are afraid of our LORD punishment for misjudging one person for another persons deeds.

      Do not think that we are saying it because we are proud of ourselves no we are not; but be sure that we are proud of our LORD and we are proud for all the favors which ALLAH [S.W.T] bestow upon us.

      Don’t let your hatred blindfold you, that you can not even judge what is light and what is darkness.
      May ALLAH protect you from affliction, and show you straight path and lead you in it. Take care.
      May ALLAH bless you and your family.
