1 Thul-Qedah, 1433

Assalamo Alaikum brothers and sisters in Islam, and to all readers! Today I speak the continuation from yesterday about the character of our beloved prophet (SAW), what is His mission, His teaching to His ummah, and to all humanity. 

I love to share a Jewish Rabbi who converted to Islam, listen properly what he is saying may Allah bless and guide those who are knowledgeable in their books, and searching the truth. Ameen
Jewish Rabbi Converts to Islam

 My topic about Forgiveness:
Forgiveness is a moral quality which relates to doing good to others. According to Islam any evil act must be requited by punishment proportionate to the amount of wrong committed. This is really a very just and necessary restriction.  But the Holy Qur-an furnishes a guiding rule as to the occasions of forgiveness. The Prophet gave many examples on how he forgave his enemies:

1. Thumamah, one of the bitterest enemies of the Muslims and who had inflicted all types of humiliation on the Muslims, was captured and brought before the Prophet in the mosque of Madinah. He was asked to say something in defense. Instead of defending himself, he said that:
  1. The Prophet of Islam was the worst man,
  2. The religion of Islam was the worst religion, and
  3. The state of the Muslims was the worst of the states.
His word did not infuriate the Prophet. The Prophet gave him personal service for three days. Everyday asking him to give his opinion about Islam, on the third day when this recalcitrant infidel repeated his original opinion he was let off by the Prophet. The faithful were rather angry and apprehensive that he would re-start his reign of terror, murder and plunder against the Muslims.

Towards the evening the refractory rebel was seen coming back, brandishing his sword and naturally creating fear in the minds of the weak Muslims.

The Prophet was then holding his last prayer session in the mosque. When he hear about it, he ordered that the man should be allowed to come without any hindrance. When the man came up, he wanted to know exactly the place where he had stood to make those wild allegations about Islam and the Prophet of Islam.

When informed, he stood on that very spot and then narrated that while he was going away from the Prophet's court his heart was maligning him for having abused and maltreated a person who had been so forgiving and kind to him.

He then narrated that he had cleansed his body and, with a clean mind, came up and wanted now to declare unto humanity that:
  1. The Prophet of Islam was the best of human beings.
  2. The religion of Islam was the only religion of peace, and
  3. The state based on Islam would be the best of states.
Then Thumamah embraced Islam.

Assalamu Alaikum! My dear brothers and sister in Islam, and to all the readers! Today I am talking about the response on the mockery of the Islam and Prophet Mohammad (SAW).

First of all listen our brother Ustadh! the way he delivered his respond: I agree with him. As what in my understanding and opinion may Allah forgive me if I'm wrong, but I want to clarify to all Muslim that we are being chosen by Allah to show to all humanity a humble servant of Allah and not to engage hatred toward non Muslim because of one mistake that you cannot forgive. 

But, how about killing an innocent non Muslim? do you think Allah (SWT) happy for what you did? cursing human being created by Allah (SWT).

The Holy Quran Says:
On that account: We ordained for the Children of Israel that if anyone slew a person - unless it be for murder   or for spreading mischief in the land it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people. Then although there came to them Our Messengers with Clear Signs, yet, even after that, many of them continued to commit excesses in the land.
Surah Al Maidash, 5:32

To the Muslim ummah! I agree that we need to protest but not to fight and kill somebody, Prophet Mohammad (SAW) teach us how to be a good to everyone, he is the best example, and we need to obey and follow his example. I agree we need to depend our religion, depend our Prophet (SAW) but not to kill someone or engage war from non Muslim. This is the work of evils.

Allah said in the holy Quran:
"Laqad kaana lakum fii him uswatun hasanah." 
Certainly there is for you in  them (Prophets) a good example.
Surah Al Mumtahinah, 60:6

Prophet said:
"Bu-ith tu li utam-mima makaarimal akhlaq."
I was sent to perfect human conduct and moral.

Allah's Messenger (SAW) said:
"The strong is not the one who overcomes the people by his strength, but the strong is the one who controls himself while in anger."

Fellow Muslim, I advice you and myself to fear Allah (SWT). Allah says:
"O you who believe! Fear Allah as He should be feared, and die not but in a state of Islam."

We need to have a knowledge of Islam, Faith, and good character, and teach this knowledge to the children.

24 Shawwal, 1433

Assalam Alaikum! My dear brothers and sister in Islam, and to all the readers! This is a continuation from yesterday about a Muslim character toward his/her Muslim and non Muslim brothers, and sister. 

Yesterday I'm talking about prayer prevents commitment of evil. Today I will discuss about Zakat.

Zakat is a means of purification.
Zakat has been made compulsory on the eligible 'scheduled' (sahibe Nisab) persons. It is not merely a tax that is collected from the pockets of the people, but its foremost purpose is to sow the seeds of kindness, sympathy and benevolence, and to provide a chance of introduction among the various sections of the society and to establish the relationship of love and friendliness.

Please read this Blog how to pay Zakat

The purpose of paying Zakat has been stated in the Quran in the following words:
" O Prophet! Take charity from their property so that it may clean them and purify them."
Surah Tauba, 9:103

To clean the self of the worldly impurities and to raise the standard of the society to the heights of decency and purity are the wisdom behind the levy of Zakat.  

For this reason the Prophet has taken it in a very wide sense, and to pay Zakat has been made compulsory for every eligible Muslim.

The Prophet (SAW) said:
To smile in the company of your brother is charity. 
To command to do good deeds and to prevent others from doing evil is charity. 
To guide a person in a place where he can go astray is charity.
To remove troublesome things like thorns and bones from the road is charity.
To pour water from your jug into the jug of your brother is charity.
To guide a person with defective vision is charity for you.
Sahih Al- Bukhari

23 Shawwal, 1433

Assalam Alaikum! My dear brothers and sister in Islam, and to all the readers! I will be sharing about a Muslim character toward his/her Muslim and non Muslim brothers, and sister. 

Allah (SWT) sent down a message to all His prophet to teach his people the good moral character, but first the prophets must be in a perfection of Morals:

"I have been sent only for the purpose of perfection good morals."

Its purpose was nothing else but to strengthen the moral character of all the people so that the world of beauty and perfection may be illuminated before their eyes and they may try to achieve it consciously and with knowledge.

All the Islamic compulsory forms of worship are designed as exercises and training to enable people to acquire correct morals and habits and to live righteously, and to adhere to these virtues till the end, whatever be the changes in their circumstances.

Prayer prevents commitment of Evil

Salat (prayer) is a compulsory form of worship, which is like an exercise towards which man is attracted with interest and willingness. He/she offers it continually, so that his life may be free from all diseases and the body may be healthy and strong.

"Prayer prohibits obscenity and evil."
In order to keep away from evil, wickedness and to purify from bad deeds are also realities of the prayer.

"I accept the prayers of the person who adopts the policy of humility with it on account of My greatness, obliges My creatures, does not insist on sinning against Me, spends his day in remembering Me, and is kind to the poor, travelers, weak and the suffering people".

22 Shawwal, 1433

Assalamo Alaikum! my Dear Sister's and Brother's in Islam, and to all the readers! Insha Allah you will benefits some of my blog. Today! I would continue to speak out about the equality of woman with man.
According to Islam, a woman and a man are both humans being and both are apportioned equal rights. That which kept in view in Islam is that woman and man, on the basis of the very face that one is a woman and the others is a man, are not identical with each other in many respects. The world is not exactly alike for both of them, and their natures and dispositions were not intended to be the same. Eventually, this requires that in very many rights, duties and punishments, they should not have an identical placing.

Unity and sincerity between man and woman can be achieved, and only then will woman obtain happiness, equal to the happiness of man, the only way to achieve that end is for her to forget about an identical set of rights with man and have faith in rights suitable for herself.
Woman rights in Islamic society are equal in value to the rights that men have. Our point of view is that dissimilarity in the rights of man and woman should be observed to whatever extent nature has differently moulded and created them. 

Some rights of women in Islam
Islam decided that a woman has the rights to guide her self. If a guardian has the right to give her in marriage, he has no right to oblige her. This matter is up to her. Therefore Prophet Mohammad said: " A widow has more rights than her guardian".

The relation between a woman and her guardian is to keep her pure, to prevent her from bad behavior and help her to choose her husband. If she chooses a good man to be her husband, her guardian has no right to deny. If he does not agree, his objection is nil. She can marry her self or the judge will do so.

After marriage, the husband is not a guardian for her except the right of a husband and wife in Islam.

A wise woman can dispose of her money without interference of her father or brothers before she is married. When she is married, her money will remain for her to dispose of exactly as her husband has the right to dispose of his money, like the man.

Assalamo Alaikum! To my Dear Sister, and Brother in Islam, and to all the readers may Allah bless and guide you and the right path. Ameen. Before I continue my previous blog (10 Shawwal, 1433). I would like to share the Quranic verse that I read today (especially for you). See below:

Verily your Lord is Allah, who created the heavens and the earth in six Days, and is firmly established on the Throne (of authority) regulating and governing all things. No intercessor (can plead with Him) Except after His leave (Hath been obtained). This is Allah your Lord; Him therefore serve ye: will ye not celebrate His praises? 
To Him will be your return of all of you. The promise of Allah is true and sure. It is He Who beginneth the process of creation, and repeateth it, that He may reward with Justice those who believe and work righteousness: but those who reject Him will have nothing but draughts of boiling fluids, and a penalty grievous: because they did reject Him. 
Surah Yunus, 10:3-4

Verily, in the alteration of the Night and the Day, and in all that Allah hath created, in the heavens and the earth, are Signs for those who fear Him.
Surah Yunus, 10:6

Say: "O ye men! if ye are in doubt as to my religion, (behold!) I worship not what ye worship, other than Allah! but I worship Allah who will take your souls (at death): I am commanded to be (in the ranks) of the Believers.
Surah Yunus, 10:104

Allah do touch thee with hurt, there is none can remove it but He: if He do design some benefit for thee, there is none can keep back His favour: He causeth it to reach whomsoever of His servants He pleaseth. And He is the Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. 
Say: "O ye men! Now truth hath reached you from your Lord! Those who receive guidance , do so for the good of their own souls; those who stray, do so to their own loss: and I am not (set) over you to arrange your affairs."
Follow thou the inspiration sent unto thee, and be patient and constant, till Allah do decide; for He is the Best to decide.
Surah Yunus, 10:107-109

"O You who believe in Me follow what Allah (SWT) want you to be, in order to have me in your whole LIFE that is the answer of my prayer, but if you don't accept then forget everything that you  meet, and need Me. Because nothing will benefit in you only your tears, and loss in this LIFE and also in the Hereafter." The sign of Allah (SWT) is so clear.
