5 Kalimah/The Code In Islam

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

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

 

“Have you not considered how ALLAH presents an example, [making] a good word like a good tree, whose root is firmly fixed and its branches [high] in the sky?

It produces its fruit all the time, by permission of its LORD. And ALLAH presents examples for the people that perhaps they will be reminded.

And the example of a bad word is like a bad tree, uprooted from the surface of the earth, not having any stability.

ALLAH keeps firm those who believe, with the firm word, in worldly life and in the Hereafter. And ALLAH sends astray the wrongdoers. And ALLAH does what HE Wills.”

– [14:24-27] 14.Surat ‘Ibrāhīm (Abraham) – سورة ابراهيم

The Kalimah (Arabic: الكلمة; Turkish: Kelime; also spelled Kalima or Kalema) literally translates as ‘The Code’. It is referred to as such due to being the centerpiece in the faith of Muslims. Affirmation of the Kalimah is the first of the five pillars of Islam and belief in the meaning of the Kalimah is the primary distinction of what defines a Muslim. Recitation of the Shahada (based on the Kalimah) is the Islamic declaration of faith, also known as the Kalima-e-Shahaadat.

Some Selected Hadith

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!

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).”

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.'”

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.'”

 ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] said: Islam is based on (the following) five (principles):

1. To testify that none has the right to be Worshiped but ALLAH [S.W.T] and Muhammad [S.A.W.S] is ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle.

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.

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.

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.)

Sahih Muslim: Chapter 133, Book 4: Prayer (Kitab Al-Salat), Number 1760:

 That while Gabriel (P.B.U.H) was sitting with the Apostle [S.A.W.S] he heard a creaking sound above him. 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).

I said: ALLAH [S.W.T] and HIS Apostle [S.A.W.S] know best. He again said: Abu’l-Mundhir (R.A), do you know the verse from the Book of ALLAH [S.W.T] which, according to you, is the greatest? I said: “ALLAH, there is no god but HE, the LIVING, the ETERNAL.” (Ayat Al-Kursi (2.255)) Thereupon he struck me on my breast and said: May knowledge be pleasant for you, O Abu’l-Mundhir (R.A)!

He said (to them), “Ask him why he does so.” They asked him and he said, “I do so because it mentions the Qualities of the BENEFICENT and I love to recite it (in my prayer).” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said (to them), “Tell him that ALLAH [S.W.T] loves him.”

It would be said to him: Who is your LORD? And he would say: ALLAH is my LORD and Muhammad [S.A.W.S] is my Apostle, and that is (what is implied) by the words of ALLAH [S.W.T], the EXALTED: “ALLAH keeps steadfast those who believe with firm word in this world and in the Hereafter.” (14.27)

Then Prophet [S.A.W.S] explained the taught the way to pray Salatul Tasbih and then said if you can pray this salah once a day, if you can not pray once a day then every Friday, and even if this is not possible then once a month and even if this is not possible then once a year and even if this is not possible then at least once in a lifetime.

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. I went to the Prophet [S.A.W.S] who said, “Say, “Subhan-ALLAH” and “Alhamdu-lillah” and “ALLAHU Akbar” all together for thirty three times.”

Ali (R.A) added: The Prophet [S.A.W.S] came to us when we had gone to our beds. 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. They (the Companions (R.A)) said: Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S], is there reward for him who satisfies his sexual passion among us?

They are THY slaves, and if THOU forgiveth them-verily THOU art the MIGHTY, the WISE” (al-Qur’an, 5.118).

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.

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.)

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.'”

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.

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.”)

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.

Sahih Muslim: Chapter 38, Book 4: Prayer (Kitab Al-Salat), Number 0989:

Ma’dan b. Talha (R.A) reported:

 I met Thauban (R.A), the freed slave of ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S], and asked him to tell me about an act for which, if I do it, ALLAH [S.W.T] will admit me to Paradise, or I asked about the act which was loved most by ALLAH [S.W.T]. He gave no reply. I again asked and he gave no reply. I asked him for the third time, and he said: I asked ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] about that and he said: Make frequent prostrations before ALLAH [S.W.T], for you will not make one prostration without raising you a degree because of it, and removing a sin from you, because of it. Ma’dan (R.A) said: That then he met Abu al-Darda’ (R.A) and when he asked him, he received a reply similar to that given by Thauban (R.A).

 ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] as saying: What wonderful verses have been sent down today the like of which has never been seen! They are: “Say: I seek refuge with the LORD of the dawn,” and “Say: I seek refuge with the LORD of men.” (i.e. Surat Al-Falaq and Surat An-Nas)

Sahih Muslim: Chapter 158, Book 4: Prayer (Kitab Al-Salat), Number 1885:

Jabir b. Abdullah (R.A) said:

 When ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] delivered the sermon, his eyes became red, his voice rose and his anger increased so that he was like one giving a warning against the enemy and saying: “The enemy has made a morning attack on you and in the evening too.” He would also say:” The last Hour and I have been sent like these two.” And he would join his forefinger and middle finger; and would further say: “The best of the speech is embodied in the Book of ALLAH [S.W.T], and the best of the guidance is the guidance given by Muhammad [S.A.W.S]. And the most evil affairs are their innovations; and every innovation is error.” He would further say: I am more dear to a Muslim even than his self; and he who left behind property that is for his family and he who dies under debt or leaves children (in helplessness) the responsibility (of paying his debt and bringing up his children) lies on me.”

HE is pleased with you that you Worship HIM and associate nor anything with HIM, that you hold fast the rope of ALLAH [S.W.T], and be not scattered; and HE disapproves for you irrelevant talk, persistent questioning and the wasting of wealth.

Abu Huraira (R.A) reported:

 ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] as saying: Charity does not in any way decrease the wealth and the servant who forgives ALLAH [S.W.T] adds to his respect, and the one who shows humility ALLAH [S.W.T] elevates him in the estimation (of the people).

They (the Companions (R.A) of the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) said: A poor man amongst us is one who has neither dirham with him nor wealth. 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.

Thereupon he (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) said: Backbiting implies your talking about your brother in a manner which he does not like. It was said to him: What is your opinion about this that if I actually find (that failing) in my brother which I made a mention of? He said: If (that failing) is actually found (in him) what you assert, you in fact backbited him, and if that is not in him it is a slander.

Sahih Muslim: Chapter 11, Book 35: Pertaining To The Remembrance Of ALLAH [S.W.T] (Kitab Al-Dhikr), Number 6518:

Abu Huraira (R.A) reported:

 ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] as saying: He who alleviates the suffering of a brother out of the sufferings of the world, ALLAH [S.W.T] would alleviate his suffering from the sufferings of the Day of Resurrection, and he who finds relief for one who is hard pressed, ALLAH [S.W.T] would make things easy for him in the Hereafter, and he who conceals (the faults) of a Muslim, ALLAH [S.W.T] would conceal his faults in the world and in the Hereafter. ALLAH [S.W.T] is at the back of a servant so long as the servant is at the back of his brother, and he who treads the path in search of knowledge, ALLAH [S.W.T] would make that path easy, leading to Paradise for him and those persons who assemble in the house among the houses of ALLAH [S.W.T] (Mosques) and recite the Book of ALLAH [S.W.T] and they learn and teach the Qur’an (among themselves) there would descend upon them the Tranquility and Mercy would cover them and the Angels (P.B.U.T) would surround them and ALLAH [S.W.T] makes a mention of them in the presence of those near HIM, and he who is slow-paced in doing good deeds, his (high) descent does not make him go ahead.

Abu Dharr (R.A) reported:

 That ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] said: There is no believing servant who supplicates for his brother behind his back (in his absence) that the Angels (P.B.U.T) do not say: The same be for you too.

Sunan Abi Dawud: Chapter 27, Book 42: Model Behavior of the Prophet (Kitab Al-Sunnah), Hadith 158:

Narrated Al-Bara’ Ibn Azib (R.A):

 We went out with the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] accompanying the bier of a man of the Ansar. When we reached his grave, it was not yet dug. So the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] sat down and we also sat down around him as if birds were over our heads. He had in his hand a stick with which he was scratching the ground. He then raised his head and said: Seek refuge with ALLAH [S.W.T] from the punishment in the grave. He said it twice or thrice.

The version of Jabir (R.A) adds here: He hears the beat of their sandals when they go back, and at that moment he is asked: O so and so! Who is your LORD, what is your religion, and who is your Prophet?

Hannad (R.A)’s version says: Two Angels (P.B.U.T) will come to him, make him sit up and ask him: Who is your LORD? He will reply: My LORD is ALLAH [S.W.T]. They will ask him: What is your religion? He will reply: My religion is Islam. They will ask him: What is your opinion about the man who was sent on a mission among you? He will reply: He is the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S]. They will ask: Who made you aware of this? He will reply: I read ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Book, believed in it, and considered it true; which is verified by ALLAH [S.W.T]’s words: “ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Book, believed in it, and considered it true, which is verified by ALLAH [S.W.T]’s words: “ALLAH establishes those who believe with the word that stands firm in this world and the next.”

The agreed version reads: Then a crier will call from Heaven: MY servant has spoken the truth, so spread a bed for him from Paradise, clothe him from Paradise, and open a door for him into Paradise. So some of its air and perfume will come to him, and a space will be made for him as far as the eye can see.

He also mentioned the death of the infidel, saying: His spirit will be restored to his body, two Angels (P.B.U.T) will come to him, make him sit up and ask him: Who is your LORD? He will reply: Alas, alas! I do not know. They will ask him: What is your religion? He will reply: Alas, alas! I do not know. They will ask: Who was the man who was sent on a mission among you? He will reply: Alas, alas! I do not know. Then a crier will call from Heaven: He has lied, so spread a bed for him from Hell, clothe him from Hell, and open for him a door into Hell. Then some of its heat and pestilential wind will come to him, and his grave will be compressed, so that his ribs will be crushed together.

Jabir (R.A)’s version adds: One who is blind and dumb will then be placed in charge of him, having a sledge-hammer such that if a mountain were struck with it, it would become dust. He will give him a blow with it which will be heard by everything between the east and the west except by men and jinn, and he will become dust. Then his spirit will be restored to him.

 

And strive for ALLAH with the striving due to HIM. HE has chosen you and has not placed upon you in the religion any difficulty. [It is] the religion of your father, Abraham. ALLAH named you “Muslims” before [in former scriptures] and in this [revelation] that the Messenger may be a witness over you and you may be witnesses over the people. So establish prayer and give zakah and hold fast to ALLAH. HE is your PROTECTOR; and excellent is the PROTECTOR, and excellent is the HELPER.”

– [22:78] 22.Surat Al-Ĥaj (The Pilgrimage) – سورة الحج

“Indeed, the Muslim men and Muslim women, the believing men and believing women, the obedient men and obedient women, the truthful men and truthful women, the patient men and patient women, the humble men and humble women, the charitable men and charitable women, the fasting men and fasting women, the men who guard their private parts and the women who do so, and the men who remember ALLAH often and the women who do so – for them ALLAH has prepared forgiveness and a great reward.”

– [33:35] 33.Surat Al-‘Aĥzāb (The Combined Forces) – سورة الأحزاب
