The Sacred “Ashurah” Day

As mentioned previously, every single day of Muharram is sanctified, but the 10th of Muharram holds the highest significance among all other days, also referred commonly as “Ashurah”. Ibn-e-Abbas, a revered companion of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) narrates:

The Prophet (PBUH), when migrated to Madinah, found that the Jews of Madinah used to fast on the 10th day of Muharram. They said that it was the day on which the Prophet Musa (Moses), alayhis salam, and his followers crossed the Red Sea miraculously and the Pharaoh was drowned in its waters. On hearing this from the Jews, the Prophet, Sall-Allahu alayhi wa sallam, said, “We are more closely rotated to Musa, alayhi salam, than you,” …and directed the Muslims to fast on the day of ‘Ashura’. (Abu Dawood)



Conclusion

Islam is definitely a religion that not only offers a code of conduct for life, but also bestows its followers with countless bounties engulfed within its teachings. This becomes even clearer to us by virtue of Quran learning, offering us blessings, as well as awakening of mind and soul.

Muslims should try their level best to follow the guidelines of the greatest and truest religion (Islam) blessed to them by Allah Almighty, and not only observe the sanctity of Muharram, but all through the year and all through their lives.

Fasting During Muharram

This is very much of self explanatory hadhith that clearly signifies the importance of this month. The importance of fasts is very obvious to Muslims and when Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) specifically mentions them with respect to a particular month other than Ramadan, there should be no doubt whatsoever about the sanctity of such a month, which is Muharram in this case. More important is the fact that these fasts are not mandatory, but they are promised of great rewards, and can be observed during whole month.

Sanctity Of Muharram

Sanctity Of Muharram

his article concerns with one of them majorly, i.e. Muharram, a sacred month that marks the beginning of the lunar Hijjrah Calendar. Though every month of the year is important, but there are some events of historical or religious importance associated with some months which make them a bit special than others. Same is the case with Muharram. Some of the significances of Muharram are listed here:

Islamic Concept Of Months

That is why Islam is also referred as a religion that offers complete code of life. It serves to address everything, from faith to practicalities of life, taking into account finer details of life. Qur’an, the book of Allah bestows its followers even the mechanism of months, describing it in detail, as mentioned in the following verse:

At-Taubah [9:36] The number of months in the sight of Allah is twelve (in a year)― so ordained by Him the day He created the heavens and the earth; of them four are sacred; that is the straight usage. So wrong not yourselves therein and fight the pagans all together as they fight you all together. But know that Allah is with those who restrain themselves.

Not only has this beautiful verse made it clear that Allah Almighty has eased out humanity by giving them an order of 12 months to mark an year, but it also makes clear that Allah Almighty holds 4 months sanctified than the rest, i.e. Dhul-Qa’dah, Dhul-Hijjah, Muharram, and Rajab. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) also signified this fact in his last sermon during his last Hajj in the following words:

“One year consists of twelve months, of which four are sanctified months, three of them are in sequence; Dhul-Qa’dah, Dhul-Hijjah, Muharram, and the fourth is Rajab.”

Comprehensiveness Of Islam



s mentioned earlier, there are countless attributes that set Islam quite distinctively from other religions, one of them being beholder of the widest canvass that addresses all spheres of life, rather than just focusing on typical religious facet.

Sanctity Of Muharram According To Teachings Of Quran And Hadith

There are countless attributes that make Islam quite different from other major religions preceding it. The biggest virtue of Islam is that creator of the universe, Allah Almighty, has declared it as a religion of His preference that shall serve to guide humanity till The Day of Resurrection.
In fact, there are a few verses describing precisely about this in Holy Quran, such as:





Aal-e-Imran [3:85] If anyone desires a religion other than Islam (submission to Allah) never will it be accepted of him; and in the Hereafter he will be in the ranks of those who have lost (all spiritual good).

Qaza, Kaza Namaz Ka Tarika guidance about the leaving prayers in day

Iman laane k baad islam ka doosra eham rukun namaz hai, Qayamat k din bhi pehla sawaal namaz ka hi hoga hum ko chahiye k hum apni namaz jitni hum per kaza hain jald se jald ada kar len zindagi ka kya bharosa Abhi hai agle lamhe nahi

Waise To afzal aur aula yehi hai k tamam namazon ko poore tareeqe se parh len per humare nafs per yeh mushkil lage ga is liye kam waqt mei zada se zada namaz ada karne k liye Ulema Hazraat ne Namazon mei takhfeef ki ijazat di hai taa'ke hum apni zindagi ki namazen jo apni kotaahi ya sharayi majboori k bina ada na kar paye the.

Pehle to hum ko apni kotahi per toba karni chahiye k hum ne kitni namazen nahi parhi ya kaza kardein dil mei pakka irada karen k Ainda inshallah koi namaz kaza na hogiii aur puraani bhi inshallah poori ada karen ge, hum ko pehle hisaab lagaana hoga humaare zimme kitni namazen baaqi hain, is k liye ghalib gumaan karna hoga k 12 saal ki umer se aajtak kitne saal hue, phir un mei se kitne saal ki namazen ada nahi kien aik sal do sal jab ghalib gumaan hojaye k han k buhat se buhat itni to namazenn hongi is se kam ho sakti hain zada nahi to phir aahista aahista ada karna shuru karen

aik baar hisaab laga liya k kitni namazen humaare zimme baaqi hain phir jaise sahoolat ho ada kar leni chahiye per aik baat ka khayal rakhna chahiye k kissi k saamne kaza namaz ada na karen, Namaz-e-Asar aur namaz-e-Fajr parhne k baad koi nawafil ada nahi kiye jaa sakte to ager aap sab k saamne ada karoge to her koi samajh jaye ga k aap kaza namaz parh rahe ho

Neeyat is tarah karen k Mai khaas Allah taa'le k liye apne zimme sab se pehli(Yaa sab se aakhri) namaz-e-Fajer ki do rakat farz ki neeyat karta hoon. Aap chahen to aik namaz ko poora karlen pehle jaise saari fajer kiii yaa aik aik din ki poori poori jis tarah sahoolat ho aap ko takbeer k baad Sana na parhen, Auzubillah, ``` chhor den aur direct Surah Fatiha parhen phir us k baad koi bhi soorat milayen phir ruku aur sajda ki tasbeeh 3 bar k bajaye sirf aik bar parhen faraaiz ki teesri aur chauthi rakat mei surah fatiha ki jaga sirf teen bar SubhanAllah SubhanAllah SubhanAllah parh k ruku mei chalen jayen, akhri rakat mei Attahiyaat parhne k baad itna parhen "Allahumma Salle ala muhammadin" itna keh k salaam pher den Durood-e-Ibrahimi aur Dua chhor den.

Shukriya....

عورت اور مرد کی نماز میں فرق

مرد وعورت کی نماز میں تفریق اور امتیاز اگرچہ ہمارے نزدیک عورت کے امتیازی مسائل میں شامل نہیں- کیونکہ اس تفریق و امتیاز کی کوئی صحیح دلیل نہیں- لیکن چونکہ برادران احناف نے مرد اور عورت کی نماز میں تفریق کررکھی ہے، بنابریں اس کی اصل حیثیت کی وضاحت ہمارے نزدیک ضروری ہے، اس لیے ذیل میں اس کی بابت بھی چند گزارشات اور احناف کے دلائل پر کچھ تجصرہ درج ہے- جہاں تک ہمیں علم ہے اس کے مطابق احناف نے تین مسئلوں میں عورتوں کا مردوں سے مختلف طریقہ نماز بتلایا ہے-

٭ رفع الیدین میں، کہ مرد کانوں تک تکبیر کے لیے ہاتھ اٹھائے اور عورت کاندھے تک-
٭ عورت سینے پر ہاتھ باندھے اور مرد زیر ناف-
٭ عورت جب سجدہ کرے تو اپنا پیٹ رانوں سے چپکالے جب کہ مرد کو حکم ہے کہ اپنی رانیں پیٹ سے دور رکھے-

٭ پہلے امر کے متعلق ہماری نظر سے کوئی معقول دلیل نہیں گزری، جس سے یہی معلوم ہوتا ہے کہ احناف کے پاس اپنے اس موقف کے اثبات کے لیے سواء قیاس کے کوئی دلیل نہیں-
چنانچہ حافظ ابن حجر لکھتے ہیں:
" حنفیہ جو کہتے ہیں کہ مرد ہاتھ کانوں تک اٹھائے اور عورت کندھوں تک، اس کہ اس میں عورت کے لیے زیادہ ستر (پردہ) ہے- مرد و عورت کے درمیان فرق کرنے کا یہ حکم کسی حدیث میں وارد نہیں ہے-"
(فتح الباری، الاذان:2/287)

اور امام شوکانی لکھتے ہیں:
" یہ رفع الیدین ایسی سنت ہے جو مرد و عورت دونوں کے لیے یکساں ہے، اس کی بابت دونوں کے درمیان فرق کرنے کا کوئی حکم نہیں ہے- اس طرح مقدار رفع میں بھی فرق کرنے کی کوئی صراحت منقول نہیں ہے جیسا کہ حنفیہ کا مذہب ہے کہ مرد ہاتھ کانوں تک اٹھائے اور عورت کندھوں تک- حنفیہ کے اس مذہب کی کوئی دلیل نہیں ہے-"
(نیل الاوطار، باب رفع الیدین وبیان صفتہ مواضعہ: 2/206)

٭ دوسرے امر میں ہاتھ باندھنے میں احناف مرد وعورت کے درمیان جو تفریق کرتے ہیں، اس کی بھی کوئی دلیل ہمارے علم میں نہیں ہے- یہ بھی اس امر بین شہادت ہے کہ احناف کے پاس اپنے موقف کے اثبات کے لیے بھی کوئی دلیل نہیں ہے- اس لیے احادیث صحیحہ کی رو سے مرد و عورت دونوں کے لیے یہ ہی حکم ہے کہ وہ نماز میں سینے پر ہاتھ باندھیں-
مولانا یوسف لدھیانوی مرحوم نے اپنی کتاب "اختلاف امت اور صراۃ مستقیم" میں سارا زور تیسرے فرق کے اثبات پر لگایا ہے- کیونکہ اس مسئلہ میں ان کے پاس ایک مرسل روایت اور ضعیف آثار ہیں، لیکن واقعہ یہ ہے کہ مرسل روایت محدثین اور علمائے محققین کے نزدیک قابل حجت ہی نہیں- علاوہ ازیں یہ مرسل روایت بھی منقطع ہے اور اس میں ایک راوی (سالم) متروک ہے-
(ملاحظہ ہو: الجوھر النقی، تحت السنن الکبری، بیھقی، ج2)

٭ اس مرسل و منقطع روایت کے علاوہ مدیر "بینات" نے کنزالعمال کی ایک روایت بیہقی اور ابن عدی کے حوالے سے بروایت عبداللہ بن عمر رض نقل کی ہے کہ "آنحضرت صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کا ارشاد ہے' عورت جب سجدہ کرے تو اپنا پیٹ رانوں سے چپکالے- ایسے طور پر کہ اس کے لیے زیادہ سے زیادہ پردے کا موجب ہو-"
( ص:90-91)
یہ روایت سنن بیہقی میں موجود ہے لیکن موصوف نے یہ روایت سنن بیہقی کے بجائے کنز العمال کے حوالے سے نقل کی ہے- اور وجہ اس کی یہ ہے کہ سنن بیہقی میں اس کی سند بھی موجود ہے اور اس کی بابت امام بیہقی کی یہ صراحت بھی ہے کہ:
"اس جیسی (ضعیف) روایت کے ساتھ استدلال نہیں کیا جاسکتا-"
(ملاحظ ہو، سنن بیہقی، ج2، ص:222-223)

بہرحال ارکان نماز میں مرد و عورت کے درمیان شریعت اسلامیہ نے کوئی فرق و امتیاز نہیں کیا- بلکہ ایک عام حکم دیا ہے:
{صلو کما رایتمونی اصلی}
"تم نماز اس طرح پرھو جیسے تم نے مجھے نماز پڑھتے ہوئے دیکھا ہے"
(صحیح بخاری)

اس حکم میں مرد و عورت دونوں شامل ہیں جب تک کہ کسی واضح نص سے عورتوں کی بابت مختلف حکم ثابت نہ کر دیا جائے- جیسے عورت کے لیے ایک خاص حکم یہ ہے کہ وہ اوڑہنی (پردے) کے بغیر نماز نہ پڑھے، اسی طرح حکم ہے کہ باجماعت نماز پرھنے کی صورت میں اس کی صفیں مردوں سے آگے نہیں، بلکہ پیچھے ہوں- اگر نماز کی ہیئت اور ارکان کی ادائگی میں بھی فرق ہوتا تو شریعت میں اس کی بھی وضاحت کردی جاتی- اور جب ایسی صراحت نہیں ہے تو اس کا صاف مطلب ہے کہ مرد و عورت کی نماز میں تفریق کا کوئی جواز نہیں-

Namaz aur Parda

Asslam o alikum.

is topic me namaz parhne ka tariqa likha gya h jo k bilkul theik h lekin ye nahi :-

" aurton ki kohniyan zameen par bichi hon ."

Sahih Bukhari ki hadees hai:

باب : سجدوں میں اپنی کہنیاں (زمین پر) نہ بچھائے۔
حدیث نمبر : 466
سیدنا انس بن مالک رضی اللہ عنہ نبی کریم صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم سے روایت کرتے ہیں کہ آپ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے فرمایا: “ سجدوں میں اعتدال کرو اور تم میں سے کوئی شخص اپنی دونوں کہنیاں (زمین پر)، جس طرح کہ کتا بچھا لیتا ہے، نہ بچھائے۔


koi bhi shakhas yani mard ho ya aurat.wallahu allam

aur mera aik sawal ye hai k hum aksar bahir jate hain to zahir hai full parda kr k jate hain.aur isi trha Haram Sharif jate hain tab bhi.aur wahan pr aurton & mardon k bethne ki jga alag hai.lekin jab hum kabhi late pohnchte hain yani namaz ho rahi hoti h to hum bahir hi namaz me shamil ho jate hain jahan aurton ki saf lagi ho.aur thora hi pas mardon ki bhi,aur baz-ouqat kuch mard namaz nahi parh rahe hote ya abhi aa rahe hote hain to onki nazar aurton pr bhi par jati h.


to ab sawal ye hai k kia kisi hadees se sabit hoa hai k aurat namaz me niqab kia ho?

kiu k kuch log kehte hain k namaz k time aurat ka niqab krna sahi nahi os ki namaz nahi hoti,aur kuch log kehte hain k parda hr surat kia jana chahiye.agar kahin se be-pardagi na ho to phir aap ese parhein warna karein.

Namaz Ka Tareeqa for female (Hanfi)

Namaz Ka Tareeqa for female (Hanfi):
Alhumdulillaahi Rabbil Alameen, Wassalatu assalamu alaika YA Syedil mursaleen,
Ammaa Baaad Fa' Azu billaahi minash shaitwaa nirra jeem, Bismillaa hirrah maa nirrah heem.

Assalat O Wassalam O Alaika Ya Rasool ALLAH

Assalat O Wassalam O Alaika Ya Nabi ALLAH

waAla Alika wa Ashabika ya Rehmata lil Aalameen!

Sarkaar-e-Madeena, Sultaan-e-baqareena,Qarar-e-qalb-o-seena,faiz-e-gangeena (Salalahu alaihi wasalam) said that on the day of judgement, the first question that will be asked from a persons good deeds is about "Namaaz". If the person gets this right then he will succeed and if he doesn't then it is going to be a great loos for that person.

My dear sisters firstly these days it's so sad to say that the majority of us don't even read namaaz, and the ones that do read namaaz have very little jazba to learn Sunnaths therefore people tend to make mistakes in their namaaz. So that's why today InshAllah azzawajal I'm going to show you and tell you briefly how to read namaaz. For the Sake of MEETHA MADEENA please listen and watch very carefully of how I teach you and then if you've made any mistakes you can correct them:-

Do your wuzu (ablution) and stand facing Qibla direction, and stand so that the distance between both of your feet is only 4 fingers.

Then take your hands underneath your chaadar, up to your shoulders, make sure that the hands touch the shoulders, and the fingers neither have to be joint together or totally apart, just make sure that they are normal. You have to make sure that the palms of both hands need to be facing Qibla and your eyes should be where the sajdah (prosteration) spot is.

Now you say/ do the niyat (Intention) that you are going to pray namaaz, if you say it out loud then it is better e.g. "I intend to read Fajr namaaz 2 rak'at farz…" however the intention is really what you have in your heart.

Then say the "Takbeer-e-tehreema" yaanee Allah-u-Akbar.

After this you place your left hand on your chest and then place the right hand on top, then you read the "Sanaa":-

[color=red]"Subhanakallahumma wabihamdika watabarakasmuka wa-ta'ala jadduka walaa ilaha ghairuk"


Then you read the "Ta'awwuz":-

"A'uzubillahi minishaitaan-e-rajeem"

Then you read the "Thasmiya":-

بِسْمِ اللہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیۡمِ

Then you read the full Surah Fatiha:-
اَلۡحَمْدُ لِلہِ رَبِّ الْعٰلَمِیۡنَ ۙ﴿۱﴾ اَلرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیۡمِ ۙ﴿۲﴾ مٰلِکِ یَوْمِ الدِّیۡنِ ؕ﴿۳﴾ اِیَّاکَ نَعْبُدُ وَ اِیَّاکَ نَسْتَعِیۡنُ ؕ﴿۴﴾ اِہۡدِ نَا الصِّرَاطَ الۡمُسۡتَقِیۡمَ ۙ﴿۵﴾ صِرَاطَ الَّذِیۡنَ اَنعَمۡتَ عَلَیۡہِمۡ ۬ۙ۬ غَیۡرِ الۡمَغۡضُوۡبِ عَلَیۡہِمْ وَلَا الضَّآ لِّیۡنَ ٪﴿۷﴾

After reading Surah Fatiha, slowly and quietly say "Ameen". Then read 3 ayahs (Sentenses), or one big ayah that is equal to the 3 small ayahs, or you can read a small Surah for example:- Surah Ikhlaas…

بِسْمِ اللہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیۡمِ
قُلْ ہُوَ اللہُ اَحَدٌ ۚ﴿۱﴾ اَللہُ الصَّمَدُ ۚ﴿۲﴾ لَمْ یَلِدْ ۬ۙ وَ لَمْ یُوۡلَدْ ۙ﴿۳﴾ وَ لَمْ یَکُنۡ لَّہٗ کُفُوًا اَحَدٌ ٪﴿۴

The say Allah-u-Akbar and move into the "Ruku" (Bowing) position. Do this in such a way that you touch your knees with your fingers, but don't push so much that you can hold your knees. Make sure that your fingers are together and your eyes be at your feet.

Here atleast 3 times read the following tasbeeh:-

"Subhanana rabiyal azeem" X3

Then you do the "Thasmee'" yaanee:-

"Sami-Allahu liman hamida"

Whilst reading this stand up straight, this is called "Qowma"

If you are reading alone and not behind the imam in jammath then say:-

"Allahumma rabbana wa lakal hamd"

Then whilst saying Allah-u-Akbar go into sajda so that your knees touch the ground first, then both of your hands then place your head in between both of the hands so that first you nose will touch the floor and then your forehead. Here you need to make sure that the actual bone of the nose is touching the floor and not just the tip of the nose, and the forehead needs to be firmly stuck to the ground. Your eyes have you be on your nose.

Females must do sajda in such a way that we are close together so that our arms are touching the sides of our legs and the chest and the stomach must be touching the thighs. The back bit of our thighs must be touching the bottom bits of our legs which must be touching the floor. Overall when the females are in sajda then we are totally crunched tight together.

Whilst you are in sajda make sure that the palms of your hands are touching the ground, but make sure that your elbows don't touch the ground, they be slightly lifted above the ground. All the 10 fingers must be straight and pointing towards Qibla. Take your feet out straight backwards and read the following tasbeeh atleast 3 times:-

"Subhana rabiy-al a'la" X3

Then lift you head up from the sajda so that first your head is lifted then your nose. The siiting position must be that both of the feet are out straight and your sat on your left bum cheek. Place your right hand in the centre of your right leg and vice versa for the left.
This position between both of the sajda's is called a "Jalsa".

Then for however long it takes you to say "SubhanAllah" atleast once, wait that long,

In this time, it is Musthahab, to say:- "Allahummagh-firlee" yanee "Oh Allah azzawajal forgive me"

***

Remember that this act is musthahab, therefore if you do it then you'll get more sawaab and if you don't then it doesn't matter.

***



Then say Allah-u-Akbar and just like you did the first sajda do exactly the same again for the second one too.

Again lift your head first then your nose and whilst you are about to stand up make sure that you stand up without the sahara (Support) of the ground or anything else.

This is one Rak'at finished, now you move to the second Rak'at, you start this by reading:-

"Bismillah", then Surah Fatiha (Alhamdu Shareef), then read a short Surah e.g. Surah Ikhlaas and then perform your Ruku and sulood in exactly the same way as you did in the first Rak'at.

After the second sajda, sit so that both of your feet are out and your sat on your left bum cheek, place your right hand in the centre of your right leg and vice versa for the left.

This sitting position is called the "Qa'da", here in this position you read the "Thashahud" yaanee "Attahiyyatu":-

"Attahiyyatulillahi wassalawatu watayibatu Assalamu alayka ayyuhan-Nabbiyu warahmathullahi wa barakthuhu, Assalamu alaina wa'ala ibadillahisaliheen, Ash-haddu anlaa ilaha illalahu wa ash-haddu anna Muhammadun abduhu warasoolu."

Whilst reading the "Thashahud" when you reach the word "La" then you get the middle finger of your right hand and join it to the thumb to create a circle, then you get the little finger and the finger next to it and make them touch the palm of your right hand. You do this to your hand whilst you are saying:- "Ash-haddu al"

And straight away after this the word "La" comes. As soon as you say "La" then you get your forefinger and you lift it up. You don't need to move it about, just put it up.

Then when you reach the word "Illa" then drop your finger straight away and straighten your hand out.

If you are going to read more than 2 Rak'ats then say Allah-u-Akbar and stand up again.

If you are reading your Farz namaaz e.g. 4 Rak'at Zuhr, 4 Rak'at Asr, 3 Rak'at Maghrib and 4 Rak'at Isha, then in the Qiyaam (Standing position) read:-

"Bismillahi Rahmaan-e-Raheem" and then read Surah Fatiha (Alhmadu Shareef) but there is no need to combine any surah with it. However with the Sunaths and the Nafils you read Surahs after the Surah Fatiha (Alhamdu Shareef)

After you have read the Rak'ats that you want to read e.g.after my 4 Rak'ats of Zuhr and I'm sat down and I'v read my Attahiyaatu aswell then to finish of you have to read the Durood Shareef (Durood-e-Ibraheemi Aliahi salaam)

"Allahuma salay ala Muhammadin wa ala alee Muhammadin kama salaytha ala Ibraheema wa ala alee Ibraheema innaka hameedun majeed"

"Allahuma baarik ala Muhammadin wa ala alee Muhammadin kama baraktha ala Ibraheema wa ala alee Ibraheema innaka hameedun majeed,"

Then you read any short Dua-e-Masoora for example:- "Allahumma rabbana athina fiddunya hasanathava fil akhirathi hasanathava qina aza-bannaar"

Then to finish of the namaaz first face the right shoulder and say:- "Assalamu alaikum wa Rahmatullah"


Then face the left shoulder and say the same:- "Assalamu alaikum wa Rahmatullah"
And this is the end of the namaaz.

Inshallah ess topic mein hum Wazu ka mufassil tareeqa parhengee. Yaad rakhea Nazma ke qabooleyat ka Daroomadar Wazu per hai agar Wazu naqees hua tu namaz parhna na parhna barabar hogaya...

Wazu k 4 Faraz, 12 Sunnate, 26 Mustahab hai...

Wazu ke faraz

Pyare Aqa swallallahu alai hi wa sallam farmate hai ke wazu me 4 farz hai,

1. Chehera Dhona: chehera yahantak dhona ke, apne balo ki ibteda se leker thuddi ke niche tak aur ek kan ke lov(corner) se leker dusre kan ke lov tak.


2. Apne donu haton ko koniyoun sameth dhona
3. Chauthayi sarka masa karna
4. Apne donu pairon ko takhno sameth dhona
Ye hai Wazu ke 4 Faraz

Farz use kehete hai jise karna zarori hai aur uske bagair wazu mukammil nahi hota,isiliye jab aap wazu karte hai to zyada ahtiyath rakhkhe ke jo hisse(parts) wazu me dhona farz hai use achchi tarikhe se dhole warna wazu nahi hoga aur jab wazu hi nahi huwa to namaz bhi nahi hogi.


Wazu ki niyyath

"Bismillaahi wal hamdu lillaahi Ata wadda'oo lirafayil hadas"

yun to wazu ki niyatein buhat sari hai,usme se ek ya bhi hai. Apko jo ati hai woh padle magar wazu ki niyath karne se pehle"Bismillaahi wal hamdu lillaahi " kheliya kare kyun ki

Pyare Aqa swallallaahu alai hi wa sallam farmate hai ke "jo shaks wazu shuru karne se pehle Bismillaahi wal humdu lillaahi" kahega to Allaah azzawajal,use jab tak uska wazu bhakhi rahega tab tak uske namaye amal me pal pal nekiya ata farmayega chahe woh kuch ibaadat kare ya na
kare"

dekhiye sirf thuddi si tawazzu deker agar hum wazu ki niyat karne se pehle " Bismillaahi wal hamdu lillaahi" kahe to hamare namaye amal me bhahut sare nekiya milenge


Wazu ka Tarikha

Namaz ki logic.....

Namaz ki logic.....

fiqah e hanfi k tareeka e nmaz bian karnay ma, myrizwi bhai nay apni post ma koi step bhi omit nahi kia..... (MASHALLAH)

Ma nmaz k tamam arkan ki logic bhi bian karna chahta hun..
nmaz asal ma Allah ki tareef, izzat aur insan ki ajzi, farmanbardari k izhar ka symbol hai..

jab koi insan azan ki awaz sun kar sab kaam chore kar nmaz ki taraf ata hai tau woh "moat ki yaad" ka izhar hai, jesay insan ki moat achanak a sakti hai jabkeh woh apnay kaam ma masroof ho tau usay aik lamhay ki mohlat nahi di jati.... isi tarhan insan duniawi kaam chore kar jab Allah o Akbar keh kar hath kaan tak lgata hai tau yeh "dunia se beraghbati" ka symbol hai, yani insan Allah k samnay izhar karta hai k ai rab duniawi zindgi nay mera dil teri yaad se ghafil nahi kia aur tu nay pukara ma dunia chore kar teray samnay hazir.

is k bad insan hath bandh kar khara hota hai jo hath bandhay ghulam ka symbol hai, qiyam ma insan Allah ki hamd k bad Allah se apni ajizi k izhar ma seedhay rastay par chalnay ki taufeeq mangta hai...... us k bad qurani ayat ki tilawat is cheez ka symbol hai k ham nay Allah k kalam ko mazbooti se pakar lia...

is k bad rukoo Allah ki izzat aur hebat k izhar ka symbol hai
us k bad sajda is baat ka symbol hai "ai Allah ma teray har hukam par farmanbardar hon, aur tu nay jis haal ma rakha us par razi hun"

2 sajdon ka matlab hai k insan pehlay matti ma tha, phir zinda hua, phir matti ma jaey ga, aur uski zindgi sirf itni hai jitni 2 sajdon ka darmiani waqfa...

us k bad atttahiat ma bethna Allah k deen ko mazboti se qabol karnay ka symbol hai, aur us ma Allah k bhejay huway peghambar ki risalat ki gawahi di jati hai, aur apnay aur apnay walidain aur tamam naik logon ki maghfirat mangi jati hai...

aur asal ma "practical namaz shuru hoti hai salam phernay k bad"

yani insan jo qol o qarar nmaz ma karta hai uska amli saboot nmaz k bad pesh karay, Allah k ahkamat k mutabik zindgi guzaray..

bajamaat nmaaz parhnay ka sab se bara sabak "unity, faith and discipline" hai, jo logon ko apni amli zindgi ma pesh karna chahiaey..

ISLAM and the AIM of LIFE

ISLAM and the AIM of LIFE
What is your purpose in life? What is the rationale behind our life? Why do we live in this life? These questions frequently intrigue people who try to find accurate answers.

People provide different answers to these questions. Some people believe the purpose of life is to accumulate wealth. But one may wonder: What is the purpose of life after one has collected colossal amounts of money? What then? What will the purpose be once money is gathered? If the purpose of life is to gain money, there will be no purpose after becoming wealthy. And in fact, here lies the problem of some disbelievers or misbelievers at some stage of their life, when collecting money is the target of their life. When they have collected the money they dreamt of, their life loses its purpose. They suffer from the panic of nothingness and they live in tension and restlessness.

Can Wealth Be an Aim?
We often hear of a millionaire committing suicide, sometimes, not the millionaire himself but his wife, son, or daughter. The question that poses itself is: Can wealth bring happiness to one’s life? In most cases the answer is NO. Is the purpose of collecting wealth a standing purpose? As we know, the five-year old child does not look for wealth: a toy for him is equal to a million dollars. The eighteen-year old adolescent does not dream of wealth because he is busy with more important things. The ninety-year old man does not care about money; he is worried more about his health. This proves that wealth cannot be a standing purpose in all the stages of the individual's life.

Wealth can do little to bring happiness to a disbeliever, because he/she is not sure about his fate. A disbeliever does not know the purpose of life. And if he has a purpose, this purpose is doomed to be temporary or self destructive.

What is the use of wealth to a disbeliever if he feels scared of the end and skeptical of everything. A disbeliever may gain a lot of money, but will surely lose himself.

Worshipping Allah as an Aim
On the contrary, faith in Allah gives the believer the purpose of life that he needs. In Islam, the purpose of life is to worship Allah. The term "Worship" covers all acts of obedience to Allah.

The Islamic purpose of life is a standing purpose. The true Muslim sticks to this purpose throughout all the stages of his life, whether he is a child, adolescent, adult, or an old man.

Worshipping Allah makes life purposeful and meaningful, especially within the framework of Islam. According to Islam this worldly life is just a short stage of our life. Then there is the other life. The boundary between the first and second life is the death stage, which is a transitory stage to the second life. The type of life in the second stage a person deserves depends on his deeds in the first life. At the end of the death stage comes the day of judgment. On this day, Allah rewards or punishes people according to their deeds in the first life.

The First Life as an Examination
So, Islam looks at the first life as an examination of man. The death stage is similar to a rest period after the test, i. e. after the first life. The Day of Judgment is similar to the day of announcing the results of the examinees. The second life is the time when each examinee enjoys or suffers from the outcome of his behavior during the test period.

In Islam, the line of life is clear, simple, and logical: the first life, death, the Day of Judgment, and then the second life. With this clear line of life, the Muslim has a clear purpose in life. The Muslim knows he is created by Allah. Muslims know they are going to spend some years in this first life, during which they have to obey God, because God will question them and hold them responsible for their public or private deeds, because Allah knows about all the deeds of all people. The Muslim knows that his deeds in the first life will determine the type of second life they will live in. The Muslim knows that this first life is a very short one, one hundred years, more or less, whereas the second life is an eternal one.

The Eternity of the Second Life

The concept of the eternity of the second life has a tremendous effect on a Muslims during their first life, because Muslims believe that their first life determines the shape of their second life. In addition, this determines the shape of their second life and this determination will be through the Judgment of Allah, the All just and Almighty.

With this belief in the second life and the Day of Judgment, the Muslim's life becomes purposeful and meaningful. Moreover, the Muslim's standing purpose is to go to Paradise in the second life.

In other words, the Muslim's permanent purpose is to obey Allah, to submit to Allah, to carry out His orders, and to keep in continues contact with Him through prayers (five times a day), through fasting (one month a year), through charity (as often as possible), and through pilgrimage (once in one's life).

The Need for a Permanent Purpose
Disbelievers have purposes in their lives such as collecting money and property, indulging in sex, eating, and dancing. But all these purposes are transient and passing ones. All these purposes come and go, go up and down. Money comes and goes. Health comes and goes. Sexual activities cannot continue forever. All these lusts for money, food and sex cannot answer the individual's questions: so what? Then What?

However, Islam saves Muslims from the trouble of asking the question, because Islam makes it clear, from the very beginning, that the permanent purpose of the Muslim in this life is to obey Allah in order to go to Paradise in the second life.

We should know that the only way for our salvation in this life and in the hereafter is to know our Lord who created us, believe in Him, and worship Him alone.

We should also know our Prophet whom Allah had sent to all mankind, believe in Him and follow Him. We should, know the religion of truth which our Lord has commanded us to believe in, and practice it …

WHAT IS ISLAM?

WHAT IS ISLAM?

Can we find an explanation of the great universe? Is there any convincing interpretation of the secret of existence? We realize that no family can function properly without a responsible head, that no city can prosperously exist without sound administration, and that no state can survive without a leader of some kind. We also realize that nothing comes into being on its own. Moreover, we observe that the universe exists and functions in the most orderly manner, and that it has survived for hundreds of thousand of years. Can we then say that all this is accidental and haphazard? Can we attribute the existence of man and the whole world to mere chance.

Man represents only a very small portion of the great universe. And if he can make plans and appreciate the merits of planning, then his own existence and the survival of the universe must also be a planned policy. This means that there is an extraordinary power to bring things into being and keep them moving in order.

In the world then must be a great force in action to keep everything in order. In the beautiful nature there must be a Great creator who creates the most charming pieces of art produces every thing for a special purpose in life. The deeply enlightened people recognize this creator and call him Allah "God". He is not a man because no man can create or make another man. He is not an animal, nor he is a plant. He is neither an Idol nor is He a statue of any kind because non of these things can make itself or create anything else. He is different from all these things because he is the maker and keeper of them all. The maker of anything must be different from and greater than things which he makes.

There are various ways to know God "ALLAH'' and there are many things to tell about him. The great wonders and impressive marvels of the world are like open books in which we can read about God. Besides, God Himself comes to our aid through the many Messengers and revelations He has sent down to man. These Messengers and revelations tell us everything we need to know about God.

The complete acceptance of the teachings and guidance of God 'Allah' as revealed to His Messengers Muhammad is the religion of Islam. Islam enjoins faith in the oneness and sovereignty of Allah, which makes man aware of meaningfulness of the Universe and of his place in it. This belief frees him from all fears and superstitions by making him conscious of the presence of the Almighty Allah and of man's obligations towards Him. This faith must be expressed and tested in actions, faith alone is not enough. Belief in one God requires that we look upon all humanity as one family under the universal Omnipotence of God the Creator and Nourisher of all. Islam rejects the idea of chosen people, making belief in God and good actions the only way to heaven. Thus, a direct relationship in established with God, without any intercessor.

Islam is not a new religion. It is, in essence, the same message and guidance which Allah revealed to all Prophets. Adam, Noah, Abraham, Ismael, David, Moses and Jesus (PBUT). But the message which was revealed to Prophet Mohammed (PBUT) is Islam in its comprehensive, complete and final form.

The Quran is the last revealed word of Allah and the basic source of Islamic teachings and laws. The Quran deals with the basis of creeds, morality, history of humanity, worship, knowledge, wisdom, God-man relationship, and human relationship in all aspects. Comprehensive teaching on which, can be built sound systems of social justice, economics, politics, legislation, jurisprudence, law and international relations, are important contents of the Quran. Hadith, the teachings, sayings and actions of Prophet Mohammed (PBUT), meticulously reported and collected by his devoted companions. Explained and elaborated the Quranic verses.

THE FUNDAMENTAL ARTICLES OF FAITH IN ISLAM

The true faithful Muslim believes in the following Principal articles of faith:-
1.
He believes in One God 'Allah', Supreme and Eternal, Infinite and Mighty, Merciful and Compassionate, Creator and Provider.

2.
He believes in all Messengers of God without any discrimination among them. Every known nation had a warner or Messenger from God. They were chosen by God to teach mankind and deliver His divine message. The Quran mentions the name of twenty five of them. Among them Mohammad stands as the last Messenger and the crowning glory of the foundation of Prophethood.

3.
Muslin believes in all scriptures and revelations of God. They were the guiding light which the Messengers received to show their respected peoples the Right Path of God. In the Quran a special reference is made to the books of Abraham, Moses, David and Jesus. But long before the revelations has been lost or corrupted. The only authentic and complete book of God in existence in the Quran.

4.
The true Muslim believes in the Angels of Allah. They are purely spiritual and splendid beings whose nature requires on food, drink or sleep. They spend their days and nights in the worship of God.

5.
Muslim believes in the last Day of Judgement. This world will come to an end someday, and the dead will rise to stand for their final and fair trial. People with good records will be generously, rewarded and warmly welcomed to the Heaven of Allah, and those with bad records will be punished and cast into Hell.

6.
Muslim believes in the timeless knowledge of God and His power to plan and execute His planes and nothing could happen in His Kingdom against His will. His knowledge and power are in action at all times and command over His creation. He is wise and merciful, and whatever He does must have a meaningful purpose. If this is established in our mind and hearts, we should accept with good faith all that He does, although we may fail to under stand it fully, or think it is bad.

THE FIVE PILLARS OF ISLAM

Faith without actions arid practice is a dead end, as far as Islam is concerned. Faith by nature is very sensitive and can be most effective. When it is not out of practice or out of use, it quickly loses its liveliness and motivation power.

There are five pillars of Islam:

1.
The declaration of faith: To bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Mohammad (PBUH) is His Messenger to all human beings till the Day of Judgment. The Prophethood of Mohammad obliges the Muslims to follow, His exemplary life as a model.

2.
Prayers: Daily, prayers are offered five times a day as a duty towards Allah. They strengthen and enliven the belief in Allah and inspire man to a higher morality. They purify the heart and prevent temptation towards wrong - doings and evil.

3.
Fasting the month of Ramadan. The Muslims during the month of Ramadan not only abstain from food, drink and sexual intercourse from dawn to sunset but also sincerity and devotion. It develops a sound social conscience, patience, unselfishness and will - Power.

4.
Zakkah: The literal and simple meaning of Zakkah is purity. The technical meaning of this word designates the annual amount in kind or coin which a Muslim with means must distribute among the rightful beneficiaries. But the religious and spiritual significance of Zakkah is much deeper and more lively. So it has humanitarian and sociopolitical values.

5.
Hajj (Pilgrimage to Makkah): It is to be performed once in a lifetime, if one can afford it financially and physically.

The History of Islam

The History of Islam:
Pre-Islamic

The Arabian Peninsula the birthplace of Islam is one of the hottest and driest regions in the world, consisting mainly of deserts. Since ancient times tribes of the nomadic race had populated the region. Considered the descendents of Noah’s third son Shem they are called Semites. Over the centuries theses Semitic people have migrated into the Fertile Crescent and were assimilated to into existing civilizations.

In the sixth century AD, north of the Arabian Peninsula two great powers were locked in a seesaw power struggle. The Christian Byzantine kingdom, successors of the Roman Empire was to the Northwest and controlled the Mediterranean Sea, North Africa and the lands of Palestine. In the northeast lay the Zoroastrian Persian kingdom. Both the Byzantine and Persian kingdoms had client Arab tribes allied to their cause of trade and conquest.

The Arabian Peninsula became a land of refuge for those seeking escape from both of these empires. Heretic Christian sects like the Nestorians, and Jewish tribes escaping the oppressive Byzantines found refuge in the protective deserts and cities of the Peninsula.

Arabia was divided into tribes and cities. Each city had gods and goddess. Once a year the tribes and cities of Arabia would meet in the city of Mecca during an event known as the Hajj. In Mecca, the Kaba (Cube), a large cube shaped building housed 360 idols from all the tribes of Arabia. The Kaba was the center of Arabian religious life. Here all the warring tribes would put aside their differences as they circled the Kaba. From the Kaba they would proceed to the other shrines outside of Mecca during this five day religious event. The Hajj was a tradition that Arabs of the peninsula remembered going back hundreds of years.



Mohammed
It was in this world Mohammad Ibn Abdallah was born in the year 570 AD in the city of Mecca. His father died before he was born and his mother Amina died when he was 6 years old. Al-Muttalib his grandfather took charge of the youth and died 2 years later. Abu Talib his uncle adopted young Mohammed into his family and raised him as his own son. At the age of 12, young Mohammed was taken on a caravan-trading venture to Syria and experienced the world outside of Arabia for the first time. Here Islamic tradition informs us that a Christian monk named Buhaira, proclaimed Talib’s young nephew is the last prophet and warns him about the Jews. For the next 13 years little is known of his life except that he was involved in caravan trading in and out of Arabia.

At the age of 25, Mohammed marries a 40 year old wealthy, widow named Khadijah who owns trading caravans. During the next 15 years of his life he interactes with Arabs known as the Hanefites. Hanefites were Arabs who rejected idol worship and were searching for the true religion. They looked to the religion of the Jews and Christians as being close to the goal. The Hanefites abandonded their idols and would retreat to the caves of Mecca in meditation and prayer.

At age 40 Mohammed had his first vision in the year 610 AD. He was in a cave on Mt. Hera and thought he was demon possessed. He went to Khadijah and told her about the event. She consulted with her uncle Waraca, a Hanefite who converted to Christianity, who assured them Mohammed vision was from God. Waraca declared Mohammed was a prophet to the Arab peoples, Waraca died 2 years later never becoming a Muslim.

Mohammed proclaimed Allah as the one true god and rejected the idol worship of Mecca. Khadijah, his wife, was Mohammed first convert to Islam. Few listened to Mohammed’s message and animosity grew against him as he confronted the idol worshippers and preached his religion to Mecca. Abu Talib his uncle and his tribe the Hasims protected him during this early Meccan period. In 619 Khadijah and Abu Talib died. Abu Talib headed the Hasim clan, which Mohammed was a member. The new leader of the Hasim tribe his uncle Abu Lahab refused to protect Mohammed. During the next 3 years Mohammed would fear for his life. He sought refuge and protection in nearby cities from those seeking his life.

Then in 621 during the Hajj, Arab tribes from the city of Yatrob later to be called Medina, came for the annual pilgrimage. They met Mohammed and thought him to be a prophet and invited him to their city to bring peace and settle disputes between the warring tribes. Yathrob was founded by three Jewish tribes and the idea of monotheism was familiar to its Arab tribesmen. The Arabs of Medina had been told by Jewish tribesmen about the coming Messiah who would one day conquer the world including the Arabs. The Arab tribes hoped to find this individual before the Jews. Meeting Mohammed they thought he was the one.

The Hejira (Flight)
The next year the situation became intolerable for the Muslims and in in June 622 they made what has become known as the Hejira or flight. In small groups the 150 Muslims of Mecca left for the city of Medina 280 miles to the north. When word reached those of Mecca about the escape to Medina they tried to kill Mohammed. Mohammed and Abu Bakr were able to sneak out of the city and escape to Medina by another route in September 622.

In Medina the warring Arab tribes submitted to Mohammed leadership and prophet-hood. The Jewish tribes rejected his claims of prophet and ridiculed his revelations. With most of the new arrivals from Mecca without work they needed to earn a living. Ghazu or caravan raiding was a way tribes would prevent one tribe from becoming to powerful. The Muslims in Medina began to rob the caravans heading toward Mecca. This is where the Muslim doctrine of Jihad was created.

With their caravan business being threatened, Mecca responds with one thousand solders at the battle of Bedr in March 624 the Muslims fielded 300 warriors. The battle went to the Muslims. Mohammed proclaimed his victory was a sign from Allah and his status in Medina was magnified. The lack of enthusiasm by one of the Jewish tribes caused them to be expelled by the victorious Muslim army. The direction of prayer was also changed from Jerusalem to Mecca as the Jews rejected Mohammad’s prophet-hood.


Exactly one year latter Mecca amassed 3000 solders at the battle of Uhud and the Muslims fielded 1000 solders. The battle did not go as planned. The Muslims defeated by Mecca retreated to Medina. Disheartened, Muslims blamed the second Jewish tribe as conspirators against their cause. Their homes and possessions were confiscated, and they are expelled from the city in 626 AD.

The Meccans in the hope of ending the caravan raids by the Muslims assembled 10,000 solders to attack the city of Medina in the year 627. After a two weeks siege in the hot sun they are unable to penetrate the fortress like city. They returned to Mecca. After this unsuccessful attack, Mohammed and the Muslims attacked the last remaining Jewish tribe. The tribe surrendered to the mercy of Mohammed. The men were killed and the women and children were sold into slavery.

The Muslims then begin to consolidate their power with the surrounding Arab tribes and cities.

Mecca began to feel the economic impact of its trading losses and Mohammed’s power grew in the north. They reluctantly signed the 10 year Hudaybiah peace agreement with Mohammed and the Muslims in march 628. Muslims are allowed to return to Mecca and worship at the Kaba once a year. The people of Mecca would leave their city so the Muslim could come and worship.

Two years later, in January 630, Mohammed leads 10,000 warriors to Mecca and nullifies the treaty of Hudaybiah because Muslims have been killed. The city submits to Mohammed and his warriors and accepts him as prophet. Mohammed goes to the Kaba and destroys the 360 idols in the structure. From Mecca, the “Muslims” wage Jihad on the surrounding cities forcing them to accept Islam as their religion and Mohammed as their prophet.

Mohammed made his final Hajj in 632 and died unexpectedly 3 months later in June. His friend and father in law Abu Bakr (Father of Aisha) succeeded him as leader of the Muslims

After Mohammad
Abu Bakr received the title “Caliph” or successor of Mohammed. Their was a struggle for about who would succeed Mohammad, some felt Ali the husband of Fatima, Mohammed’s daughter deserved the position. Under Abu Bakr Islam's power in Arabian peninsula was completed. In 634 AD Abu Bakr died and was succeeded by Umar (Omar) the 2nd Caliphate.

Umar advanced the Muslim armies against Syria and Palestine. In 637 A D, the armies of Byzantium lost control of Jerusalem to Islam. Uthman the 3rd Caliph succeeded Umar. Uthman ordered a complete revision of the Quran, this would cause a mutiny. He was killed and his death was considered justified because the mutineers claimed he ceased to be a Muslim. Following Uthman’s There was a struggle between rival factions of Islam about who was the rightful successor to lead Islam.

Ali the 4th Caliph, Mohammad’s son-in-law and husband of Fatima, succeeded Uthman everybody did not accept him as rightful Caliphate. War broke out between the rival groups, his succession was short lived, 2 years later he was killed, the Shi’a (Party of Ali) mourned the death of Ali, and his two sons (Grandsons of Mohammed). Ali is revered as a saint by the Shi’a who are dominate in Iran and Iraq. The Shi’a feel Ali was the rightful successor to Mohammed and don’t recognize the three earlier Caliphs. The Sunnis accept Ali and the first three Caliphate as legitimate.

After the defeat the Byzantines and Persian kingdoms in successive battles, the armies of Islam advanced on Europe. Within 100 years of Mohammad’s death the armies of Islam reached the city of Tours, in France. In Tours the Muslim advance was stopped.

In the Battle of Tours Charles Martel the grandfather of Charlemagne defeated the advancing Muslim armies. From Tours Muslim power in Europe retreated and in the 1489 Fredinand and Isabella of Spain defeated the last remaining forces in Spain. Later, the Ottoman Empire would retreat from the rest of Europe.





In the East, Islam was also expanding by the 13th century; Islam had reached the Pacific Ocean. The Islamic faith now spanned from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Ferdinand Magellan, in his attempt to bypass Muslim controlled areas in the Indian Ocean, found the passageway to Asia via the Atlantic Ocean. His desire was to bring Christianity to Asia, before Islam. Magellan was successful in introducing Christianity to the Philippines (Named after King Philip of Spain) Islam and Christianity met in the Philippines as the Northern Islands were converted to Christianity and the Southern parts of the Philippines and Indonesia were converted to Islam. Islam and Christianity became the two major rival religions in the world.

History of Islam in Urdu - Video File

Antichrist (Dajjal) the greatest Fitnah of the World

Hadhrat Imraan bin Husain (R.A.) relates that,

“I heard Rasulullah (Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam) saying: “Since the birth of Adam (A.S.) till the advent of Qiyamah there is no fitnah (evil, test) much greater that of Dajjal.”

Dajjal is the greatest fitnah of the world as mentioned by the prophet. It is believed that he would lead people to fire. He would give rise to conflict, war and bloodshed.

Who is Antichrist (Dajjal)
Antichrist is one of the signs of end of times. He would emerge before the doomsday and organize the evil powers together to fight against good. This would turn the people away from religious and moral values.

Dajjal would deceive the people with weak faith and lead them to the edge of fire. These people would follow him because of Dajjal displaying magic, hypnotism, false miracle etc. People with lack of knowledge and weak faith would follow him. He would be the major source of violence, terror and evil.

In view of Quran
In one verse it is stated that: If someone shuts his eyes to the remembrance of the All-Merciful, We assign him a satan who becomes his bosom friend (Surat Az-Zukhruf: 36)

Each time they kindle the fire of war, Allah extinguishes it. They rush about the earth corrupting it. Allah does not love corrupters. (Surat Al-Ma’ida: 64)

Those who are unbelievers are the friends and protectors of one another. If you do not act in this way there will be turmoil in the land and great corruption. ( Surat Al-Anfal: 73)

The above ayahs draw the true picture of the evil forces of the world. Satan is the friend of people who have deviated and who have weak faith. This is why Dajjal would follow satan. He would be scared of satan instead of being scared of Allah.

In view of Hadith
Prophet of Allah, sallallahu `alaihi wa sallam, said,

“There will be three hard years before the Dajjal (appears). During them, people will be stricken by a great famine. In the first year, Allah will command the sky to withhold a third of its rain, and the earth to withhold a third a third of its produce. In the second year, Allah will command the sky to withhold two thirds of its rain, and the earth to withhold two thirds of its produce. In the third year, Allah will command the sky to withhold all of its rain, and it will not rain a single drop of rain. He will command the earth to withhold all of its produce, and no plant will grow. All hoofed animals will perish, except that which Allah wills.” He (sallallahu `alaihi wa sallam) was asked, ‘What sustains people during that time?’ He said, “Tahlil, takbir and tahmid (Saying, la ilaha ill Allah, Allahu Akbar and al-hamdulillah). This will sustain them just as food does.”
[Sahih Al-Jami` as-Saghir, no. 7875]

Signs of appearance
According to hadees it is evident that Dajjal will hide in a rocky place and it is believed that this rocky place Haram Sharif. In the same time it is evident from hadees that imam Mehdi will lead the forces of the believers against Dajjal. Jesus and Mehdi would say prayers together at bait ul muqadas.

Menace
The chaos caused by the Dajjal has its roots laid in the world. As we can see the conflicts between the countries and it has no valid reason for it. Terrorism is on its peak. Muslims are surrendered by bloodshed and pain in the present time. We can see turmoil and menace of the fitnah of Dajjal in the world.

How to protect ourselves
Holy Quran is the only way to succeed in the time of Dajjal. We should read, learn Quran and implement its teachings to take refuge in Allah’s shelter.

According to hadees following dua should be recited for taking refugee:

O Allah! I seek Your protection from the torture of hell, and I seek Your protection from the torture of the grave, and I seek refuge with You from the mischief of life and death, and I seek Your protection from the mischief of Dajjal pretending as Messiah.
[Sahih al-Bukhari 2:102, Muslim 1:412, 588]

The Importance of Fajr Prayer

It is easy to understand how the idea of Muslims praying five mandatory prayers a day is misunderstood to mean that they pray only those five observances and no more. The key word here is mandatory.

Muslims should know the great status of fajr in the sight of Allah. Allah (SWT) says (interpretation of the meaning) “Establish regular prayers at the sun’s decline till the darkness of the night, and the recital of the Qur’an in the fajr prayer, for the recital of the fajr is witnessed” (Al-Israa 17:78)

In addition, the Prophet (PBUH) said: “Whoever prays the fajr prayer in congregation, it is as if he (or she) had prayed the whole night long.” [Muslim & Tirmidhi]. Now, to show the seriousness of missing this prayer, we present the Hades of the Prophet (PBUH) “The most burdensome prayers for the hypocrites are ishaa and fajr, but if they only knew what they contain, they would come even if they had to crawl.” [Ahmad]


The Fajr (dawn) prayer is amongst the most important acts of worship, being one of the five obligatory prayers. Unfortunately many of us have become so used to missing it at its prescribed time – which ends at sunrise – that we have forgotten its position in our religion, and barely feel anything is wrong when we wake up in the morning for work or school without having performed the fajr prayer. On the other hand, if one of us was to miss a job interview or a flight, we all know how disappointed he or she would feel.

Do not let Satan benefit from his actions. Do not put off a good that you intended to do as you never know how much reward you might receive from the hardships you encounter while trying to achieve that good.

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “Islam is built upon five pillars: testifying that there is no god except Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, performing Prayer, paying the Zakah, making the pilgrimage to the Sacred House (Hajj), and fasting the month of Ramadan.(Reported by Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

Benefits of Fasting In Ramadan:
There is no doubt that there have been clear indications for the blessed month and there are some significant quotes in Holy Quran and other authenticated sources of its importance to which can be understood from Almighty Allah says:

(The month of Ramadan in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for mankind, and clear proofs of the guidance, and the Criterion (of right and wrong). And whosoever of you is present, let him fast the month, and whosoever of you is sick or on a journey, (let him fast the same) number of other days. Allah desireth for you ease; He desireth not hardship for you; and (He desireth) that ye should complete the period, and that ye should magnify Allah for having guided you, and that peradventure ye may be thankful.)(Al-Baqarah 2: 185)

Blessed Month for All:
This blessed month is a great opportunity for blessing, goodness, worship, and obedience of Allah. Yes, for sure this is the month of great rewards and those who worship Allah (SWT) and do good deeds should expect rewards, such rewards that shall overcome the year round bad deeds and wash them with the intention of following and practicing the good deeds for the time to come in which you are determined to be a sincere believer.

How To Prepare For Ramadan – Are You Ready?

O you who believe! Observing al-sawm (the fasting) is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may become al-muttaqoon (the pious). (Quran al-Baqarah 2:183)

Before we start to know how to prepare for Ramadan, I would like to tell you all my brothers and sisters the importance of this Holy month in our loves and how Allah (SWT) and our Beloved Prophet has mentioned again and again of this Month’s greatness.

Remember, this is the month of achieving great heights rather than following the misconceptions of normal people taking Ramadan as a month of eating and drinking and just consider to the extent of keeping their bellies filled ignoring the fact that they are required to worship and piety following certain aspects exclusive to the month of Ramadan.

To follow the best practice and prepare for the month of Ramadan, following are useful tips to consider:

1. Sincere Repentance:
This is where you are required to follow all year round but when the month of Ramadan comes you are required to worship Allah (SWT) and repent from sins between you and your Lord. Start the month by getting busy in good deeds and worshipping refraining from other aspects which will contribute to unnecessary activities and all this is to be done by clean heart and peace of mind this is where Allah (SWT) says (interpretation of the meaning): “And all of you beg Allah to forgive you all, O believers, that you may be successful” [al-Noor 24:31].

2. Du’aa (supplication)

3. Rejoicing at the approach of the blessed month: Allah (SWT) says (interpretation of the meaning): “Say: ‘In the Bounty of Allah, and in His Mercy (i.e. Islam and the Quran); —therein let them rejoice.’ That is better than what (the wealth) they amass” [Yoonus 10:58]

4. Discharging the duty of any outstanding obligatory fasts:

5. Seeking knowledge in order to be able to follow the rulings on fasting and to understand the virtues of Ramadan.

6. Hastening to complete any tasks that may distract the Muslim from doing acts of worship.

7. Sitting with one’s family members – wife and children – to tell them of the rulings on fasting and encourage the young ones to fast.

8. Preparing some books which can be read at home or given to the imam of the mosque to read to the people during Ramadan.

Last Sermon of Our Beloved Prophet (SAWS)

Last Sermon of Our Beloved Prophet (SAWS)

(In the Name of Allah, the Most Magnificent, the Most Merciful)

The sermon was collected by different narrations and the following are certain parts of it and the authentication needs to be checked, the last sermon was delivered by our Beloved Prophet (SAWS) to the mankind on the ninth day of Dhul Hijah, 10 A.H (632 A.D) in the valley known as Mount Arafat.

“O People, lend me an attentive ear, for I know not whether, after this year, I shall ever be amongst you again. Therefore, listen to what I am saying to you very carefully and take these words to those who could not be present today.

No Interest on Investment:

O People, just as you regard this month, this day, this city as sacred, so regard the life and property of every Muslim as a sacred trust. Return the goods entrusted to you to their rightful owners. Hurt no one so that no one may hurt you. Remember that you will indeed meet your Lord, and that He will indeed reckon your deeds. Allah has forbidden you to take interest, therefore, all interest obligations shall henceforth be waived. Your capital, however, is yours to keep. You will neither inflict nor suffer inequity. Allah has judged that there shall be no interest and that all interest due to Abbas bin Abdul-Muttalib (the prophet’s uncle) shall henceforth be waived.

Beware of Satan:

Every right arising out of homicide in pre-Islamic days is henceforth waived and the first such right I waive is that arising from the murder of Rabiyah bin Al-Harith (relative of the prophet). O Men, the unbelievers indulge in tampering with the calendar in order to make permissible that which Allah forbade, and to forbid that which Allah had made permissible. With Allah the months are twelve; four of them are holy; three of these are successive and one occurs singly between the months of Jumadah and Shaaban. Beware of Satan, for the safety of your religion. He has lost all hope that he will ever be able to lead you astray in big things, so beware of following him in small things.

Rights of Women:

O People, it is true that you have certain right with regard to your women, but they also have rights over you. If they abide by your right then to them belongs the right to be fed and clothed in kindness. Do treat your women well and be kind to them for they are your partners and committed helpers. And it is your right that they do not make friends with any one of whom you do not approve, as well as never commit adultery.

O People, listen to me in earnest, worship Allah, say your five daily prayers, fast during the month of Ramadhan, and give your wealth in zakat. Perform Hajj if you can afford to. All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab, nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over a black, nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety and good action. Learn that every Muslim is the brother of another Muslim, and that Muslims constitute one brotherhood. Nothing shall be legitimate to a Muslim which belongs to a fellow Muslim unless it was given freely and willingly. Do not, therefore, do injustice to your selves.

The Day of Judgment:

Remember, one day you will appear before Allah and answer for your deeds. So beware, do not stray from the path of righteousness after I am gone.

O People, no prophet or apostle will come after me and no new faith will be born. Reason well, therefore, O People, and understand my words which I convey to you. I leave behind me two things, the Quran and my example, the Sunnah, and if you follow these you will never go astray.

All those who listen to me shall pass on my words to others, and those to others again; and may the last ones understand my words better that those who listen to me directly. Be my witness O Allah, that I have conveyed Your message to Your people.”

Islam Religion Encourages Learning, Observation and Science

The glory of Muslim civilization among the other communities was only because of the Islam’s focus on learning and education. This thing becomes clearer when you study the Quran and life of the Prophet Mohammad, where you can find numerous references to education, need for learning and use of logic.

For more than a thousand years Islamic empire was honored as the most developed and advanced civilization across the world. This is again because of the fact that Islam never halted anyone from learning and even Islam shows great importance to it. This desire of knowledge inculcated in Muslims tolerance, discipline and respect for authority. The Islamic beliefs and teachings persuade many Muslims to achieve their destination in the fields of science, astronomy and medicine.

It was their passion and enthusiasm for learning which resulted in the conversion of all Greek material available on Medicine, Astronomy and Science to the Arabic language. Baghdad was the hub for all this written material. Damascus, Cairo shared the same status. It was Muslims who first invented the present day cheque system. Soon, Arabic became the international language for trade and transfer of thoughts. The center of activity and knowledge shifted to east and Baghdad became the light house for the dark and ignorant Europe. The Muslim community emerged as the inventors of many scientific notions, with novelty and efficiency being their core values.


Particularly in the field of medicine Muslims accomplished many milestone and invented cure for several diseases and increase the common life expectancy. Hence, Muslims became the one and only great torchbearers of research in the fields of medicine and science. Some of the early master pieces in these fields came from the pens’ of Muslim scientists who always loved their work. It was their great motivation that ultimately led to the foundation of first university Al-Azhar(800AD) in the world. Today the western medical system is not only originated from Arab wisdom but also is based on same theories. The Muslims Arabs were the forefathers of current day medicine and scientific fields.

Learning is a natural process. This is innate and one of the basic instinct. The pleasure achieved from this is very important for human mind to nurture. If there had been no learning the life itself would be in danger. Even the growth of human race has been in danger if knowledge of sex through observation, reading and hearing is hidden from everyone.

In this world there are number of people who have laid their lives to death, drunk or eaten up to death. Nobody ever died of learning or gaining knowledge. Infect those who refrain themselves from learning enjoy no fun in life, they remain ignorant all long the life. There are plenty of subjects and topics to learn and one can always continue to educate himself, there is just no limit to wisdom. Pleasure of life exists in knowing more about opportunities it has for you and this is possible only if you learn more and more. It’s a treasure which no one can steal, treasure which increases, more as you use it.

Similarities Between The Religion Islam And Christianity

Islam and Christianity are the two largest religions dominating the world, yet following the same baseline which reflects “Belief in One God.” It’s surprising to know how much similarity and connection both these monotheistic religions carry. Let’s throw some light on these similarities:

The Fateha & The Lord’s Prayer:
“The Lord’s Prayer” in the bible and the “Sura Al-Fateha” in the Quran are universal prayers. After careful observation, we can see that both the prayers carry the similar meaning with only the difference of language.

Belief on Jesus
Both Muslims and Christians recognize the Jesus. Both believe that Jesus was sinless and born of the Virgin Mary. Both religions accept that Jesus preformed miracles and was crucified and raised up to God. The difference is only in the belief where Muslims see Jesus as a highly regarded prophet, while Christians take Him as God Himself.

Belief in the World Hereafter

Islam and Christianity are united on the concept of the doomsday. Both believe that existence of this World is finite, but man does not know when the World will come to an end. Jesus Christ will return when the World ends and at that time Satan and his servants will be defeated. Believers who die will go to heaven and live forever, while Disbelievers will go to hell to be punished.

Similarity in Prayer

Prayer is an integral part of both the religions. Both religions facilitate the communication of man with God through prayer. Prayer can be conducted at any time and special times also exist to make sure man develops the habit to pray. Praying aids like “tasbeeh” in Islam and “rosary” in Christianity are also used which resemble a string of beads.




Creation of This World and Creation of Man

In both the Bible and The Quran, creation of the world and the man has been described alike. Here are a couple of verses, one from Quran and other from Bible, enforcing the same meanings:


•Quran and world’s creation: “We created the heavens and the earth and all between them in Six Days, nor did any sense of weariness touch Us.”
•Bible and world’s creation: “Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array. By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.”
•Quran and man’s creation: “Behold! Thy Lord said to the angels: “I am about to create man from sounding clay from mud molded into shape; when I have fashioned him (in due proportion) and breathed into him of My spirit fall ye down in obeisance unto him.”
•Bible and man’s creation: “The Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.”
Similarities in Moral Codes

Both religions enforce their followers to abide by the following moral codes:

•Simple faith without its practical implementation is of no use
•Punishment for those who disrespect God and worship any other deity
•Prohibited from inhumane acts like murder, theft, lying, gambling and violence
•Parents and spouses are to be respected
•Adultery, fornication, Homosexuality and vulgarism is forbidden
•Respect and observing society laws is important
•Intoxication and suicide are forbidden
•Both religions oppose same sex marriage
These points certainly show just how similar Christians and Muslims are. All we have to do is look beyond our differences, extend our hands towards each other and live in peace and unity just the way Quran and Bible have directed.

Clear Conscience is Weapon for True Believers

Attaining a sense to distinguish between good and evil is the first step to successes on the spiritual path. A true Muslim has the following Qualities:

1.A true Muslim is a person who can distinguish between the right and wrong.
2.These people observe and witness the difference.

3.They not only learn from there own experience but also from the examples set in the environment around him.

4.They ponder on the words of the holy Quran to know which direction to move in. Quran has emphasized on the correction of deeds and repentance. Quran teaching tells to observe the world around to get the know how of this world and the world here after.
