Be Merciful & Forgiving

Mon, 07/24/2017 - 19:47

Abdullah ibn Amr reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, was upon the pulpit and he said:

ارْحَمُوا تُرْحَمُوا وَاغْفِرُوا يَغْفِرْ اللَّهُ لَكُمْ

Be merciful to others and you will receive mercy. Forgive others and Allah will forgive you.

Looking a Little Closer

Mon, 07/24/2017 - 15:19

It’s written in the Holy Quran:

Now when Jesus came [to his people] with all evidence of the truth, he said: “I have now come unto you with wisdom, and to make clear unto you some of that on which you are at variance: hence, be conscious of God, and pay heed unto me.”

Az-Zukhruf (The Gold Adornments) – 43:63

But did he actually do and say?

The first thing he did was to call a small group of men to follow him. Think of them as his students. They came from a variety of backgrounds. Some were fishermen. At least one was a civil servant. Some were married – some weren’t. And Jesus gave instruction to these men about Allah.

But Jesus also taught the general public.

When Jesus saw the crowds … he began to teach them. He said: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”

Matthew Chapter 5

Jesus healed many people who were ill. He also fed the hungry.

On one famous occasion he drove cheating money-changers out of the temple in Jerusalem. (Wouldn’t we all like to clear out the cheating bankers?)

Jesus never called himself the Son of God. Instead he preferred to describe himself as the Son of Man. Nevertheless, when he prayed (which was frequent) he always addressed Allah as Father and taught his students to do the same. He said:

“This, then, is how you should pray: ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name….'”

Obviously, every one of the men who followed him already had a father. Jesus, however, wanted them to see Allah as their Father in heaven. A good father is loving, kind, cares for his children, protects them and provides for their needs. And Jesus, it seems, understood that Allah is just like that with us – and very much more!

No Racism In Islam

Mon, 07/24/2017 - 04:35

One of things that make Islam can’t reach its honor is because we love too much our tribes, races, skins, traditions. Islam doesn’t recognize colors, but Muslim. Either you are tall with fat body or brown skin with curly hair, as long as you do believe that “LAA ILAAHA ILLALLAH MUHAMMAD RASULULLAH” (There is no God Except Allah and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah) then you are my brother and sisters in faith and its tied stronger than anything  because we are united with imaan.

So there is a question came then, why Allah created us in different nations and tribes ? why among us have different colors?

Because He is the greatest one, He has the power to do that, and he wants you to know each other who was your creator and also it’s one of his Blessings. Can you imagine if millions people who live in one world has same characteristics to each other?  Live would be so boring, wherever you go, you will meet the same like you, no differences, it wouldn’t have taste. Well at least for me.

Allah created us with differences because he wants to show us that only those who have taqwa are looked by Allah, loved by Allah, either they are black, brown, white, red, orange or purple, not what is appears but what is hidden in your heart that Allah will valued.

Nowadays, we like judging each others because of their casts,  jobs,  status, wealth, descendants and their past. We look at each other as our nations or roots, otherwise as our brothers/sisters. Where are we now? Where we put Islam in our whole aspect of life?

Really, if we want to make Islam raise again, the first thing we need to kill is racism in ourselves. As the last sermon of Rasulullah ﷺ :

“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.”

I would like to tell a story which I really like it, and I hope it will gives vision how should be we act to our brothers and sisters, how should we kill the difference from us, insyaAllah.

This story happened in the time of second khalifah of Khulafaur Rasyidin, Umar bin Khattab Radhiyallahu’anhu (R.a). There was a great war between muslim with Roman Empire and it was Khalid bin Walid Radhiyallahu’anhu who had been the commander, he was known as the unsheathed sword of Allah, a war strategist and came from rich and respectable family which has high position in society, Muslims who was same tribe of Quraish joined for this war and Umar bin Khattab r.a was worried if this was not only war for Allah but kind of Tribal Arrogance of Quraish.  So Umar bin Khattab pointed Bilal bin Rabah to send letter from Him to Khalid bin Walid. Bilal as we known was dark slave from Makkah which tortured by kafir Quraish without mercies,  until Allah honoured him with Islam.

The most interesting thing was, Umar bin Khattab instructed Bilal bin rabah to send the message directly to Khalid bin Walid without any mediator. And He, refused Bilal to read the message until Khalid bin Walid placed his face to the ground and Bilal put his feet on his face. Amazingly, Khalid bin Walid did that without any hesitation because what was said by Umar wasn’t wrong. So Khalid bin Walid hold the hands of Bilal and said in front of his soldier in the middle of Field that Bilal would read the message from Umar bin Khattab buy putting his leg on my face on the ground and no one should be angry with him.

Allahu’alam Bishawab.

Mentioning Your Blessings

Mon, 07/24/2017 - 02:00

و أما بنعمت ربك فحدث ١١الضحى

This Verse mentions that we should mention our blessings. The scholars of tafseer mention that for the Prophet (saw) this would mean talking about the Qur’an.

As for us, Zamakshari mentions in al Kashaaf that staying silent about blessings and concealing them is better, as this can lead to fear of riyaa and sum’ah (seeking doing actions and telling people about them to gain their praise).

He mentions that a person might be able to mention blessings of his to help others or teach others but again, he doesn’t need to mention that he does that action or about himself!

"Submitting to Allah" by Nurnazida Nazri |Book Review

Mon, 07/24/2017 - 00:24

Last time, I reviewed her book “Candle in the Wind” which I thought was heart-warming. This time around I am reviewing her first book “Submitting to Allah” which is a much shorter read. It is simple and easy to understand.

As she has dedicated this book to her students, the advice found in the book is related to letting go of the past and moving forward. The main theme of her advice was being grateful and to never, ever lose hope.

She has written some beautiful poetry about life and what hardships may mean to us at the end of each chapter. One of her analogies is comparing moving forward and to taking some plaster off of our skins.

“To move forward is like taking a plaster off of your skin. The pain seems unbearable at that point of time but you will feel relieved later on. Sometimes, after removing the plaster, there will be a scar left on your skin” – Nurnazida Nazri, Submitting to Allah

Source: Muslim Writers Club

I found it to be a casual read and one that you can finish within a day or one that you can revisit if you need some words of encouragement. The only thing that I wish I could get more from the book was how she could’ve told some more stories about hardships (in the form of true story or fable) and what letting go could come out of it.

Then again, maybe it was her aim to make it as casual as possible. She’s a Malaysian author and if you would like to support her work then you can find her book from Amazon, Smashwords and E-Sentral (for South East Asian region). There’s also a Malay version titled “Berserah kepada Allah” which can be found at the same websites. Til then, happy reading!

​What Allah Commands to the Muslims.

Wisdom from Quran.


Arabic
اِنَّ اللّٰهَ اشْتَرٰى مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ اَنْفُسَهُمْ وَاَمْوَالَهُمْ بِاَنَّ لَهُمُ الْجَــنَّةَ‌ؕ يُقَاتِلُوْنَ فِىْ سَبِيْلِ اللّٰهِ فَيَقْتُلُوْنَ وَيُقْتَلُوْنَ‌ وَعْدًا عَلَيْهِ حَقًّا فِى التَّوْرٰٮةِ وَالْاِنْجِيْلِ وَالْقُرْاٰنِ‌ؕ وَمَنْ اَوْفٰى بِعَهْدِهٖ مِنَ اللّٰهِ فَاسْتَـبْشِرُوْا بِبَيْعِكُمُ الَّذِىْ بَايَعْتُمْ بِهٖ‌ؕ وَذٰلِكَ هُوَ الْفَوْزُ الْعَظِيْمُ

Notes

Topics related to this Ayah
[Believers] [Gospel] [Heaven] [Pact] [Quran] [Sale] [Torah] [Victory] [Wealth]

English – Sahih International
Indeed, Allah has purchased from the believers their lives and their properties [in exchange] for that they will have Paradise. They fight in the cause of Allah, so they kill and are killed. [It is] a true promise [binding] upon Him in the Torah and the Gospel and the Qur’an. And who is truer to his covenant than Allah ? So rejoice in your transaction which you have contracted. And it is that which is the great attainment.

English – Footnote (Hilali)
a) Narrated Abu Hurairah [radhi-yAllahu ‘anhu]: Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “Allah guarantees him who strives in His Cause and whose motivation for going out is nothing but Jihad in His Cause and belief in His Words (Islamic Monotheism), that He will admit him into Paradise (if martyred) or bring him back to his dwelling place whence he has come out with what he gains of reward or booty.”

[Sahih Al-Bukhari, 4/3123 (O.P.352)]

b) Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah [radhi-yAllahu ‘anhu]: On the day of the battle of Uhud, a man came to the Prophet (ﷺ) and said, “Can you tell me where I will be if I should get martyred?” The Prophet (ﷺ) replied, “In Paradise.” The man threw away some dates he was carrying in his hand, and fought till he was martyred.

[Sahih Al-Bukhari, 5/4046 (O.P.377)]

c) Narrated Ibn ‘Umar [radhi-yAllahu ‘anhumaa]: I heard Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) saying: “If you (1) practised Bai’ Al-‘Inah (the ‘Inah transaction, i.e. selling goods to a person for a certain price and then buying them back from him for a far less price); (2) and followed the tails of the cows (i.e. indulged in agriculture and became content with it); (3) and deserted the Jihad (holy fighting) in Allah’s Cause; Allah will cover you with humiliation, and it will not be removed till you return back to your religion.”

(Abu Dawud, Hadith No. 3462)

English – Tafsir ibn kathir
Allah has purchased the Souls and Wealth of the Mujahidin in Return for Paradise

Allah says,

إِنَّ اللّهَ اشْتَرَى مِنَ الْمُوْمِنِينَ أَنفُسَهُمْ وَأَمْوَالَهُم بِأَنَّ لَهُمُ الجَنَّةَ

Verily, Allah has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties for (the price) that theirs shall be the Paradise.

Allah states that He has compensated His believing servants for their lives and wealth — if they give them up in His cause — with Paradise. This demonstrates Allah’s favor, generosity and bounty, for He has accepted the good that He already owns and bestowed, as a price from His faithful servants.

Al-Hasan Al-Basri and Qatadah commented,

“By Allah! Allah has purchased them and raised their worth.”

Shimr bin Atiyyah said,

“There is not a Muslim but has on his neck a sale that he must conduct with Allah; he either fulfills its terms or dies without doing that.”

He then recited this Ayah.

This is why those who fight in the cause of Allah are said to have conducted the sale with Allah, meaning, accepted and fulfilled his covenant.

Allah’s statement,

يُقَاتِلُونَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللّهِ فَيَقْتُلُونَ وَيُقْتَلُونَ

They fight in Allah’s cause, so they kill and are killed.

indicates that whether they were killed or they kill the enemy, or both, then Paradise will be theirs.

The Two Sahihs recorded the Hadith,

وَتَكَفَّلَ اللهُ لِمَنْ خَرَجَ فِي سَبِيلِهِ لَا يُخْرِجُهُ إِلاَّ جِهَادٌ فِي سَبِيلِي وَتَصْدِيقٌ بِرُسُلِي بِأَنْ تَوَفَّاهُ أَنْ يُدْخِلَهُ الْجَنَّةَ أَوْ يَرْجِعَهُ إِلَى مَنْزِلِهِ الَّذِي خَرَجَ مِنْهُ نَايِلً مَا نَالَ مِنْ أَجْرٍ أَوْ غَنِيمَة

Allah has made a promise to the person who goes out (to fight) in His cause; `And nothing compels him to do so except Jihad in My Cause and belief in My Messengers.’

He will either be admitted to Paradise if he dies, or compensated by Allah, either with a reward or booty if He returns him to the home which he departed from.

Allah’s statement,
.
وَعْدًا عَلَيْهِ حَقًّا فِي التَّوْرَاةِ وَالاِنجِيلِ وَالْقُرْانِ

It is a promise in truth which is binding on Him in the Tawrah and the Injil and the Qur’an.

affirms this promise and informs us that Allah has decreed this for His Most Honorable Self, and revealed it to His Messengers in His Glorious Books, the Tawrah that He sent down to Musa, the Injil that He sent down to Isa, and the Qur’an that was sent down to Muhammad, may Allah’s peace and blessings be on them all.

Allah said next,

وَمَنْ أَوْفَى بِعَهْدِهِ مِنَ اللّهِ

And who is truer to his covenant than Allah,

affirming that He never breaks a promise.

Allah said in similar statements,

وَمَنْ أَصْدَقُ مِنَ اللَّهِ حَدِيثاً

And who is truer in statement than Allah, (4:87)

and,

وَمَنْ أَصْدَقُ مِنَ اللَّهِ قِيلً

And whose words can be truer than those of Allah. (4:122)

Allah said next,

فَاسْتَبْشِرُواْ بِبَيْعِكُمُ الَّذِي بَايَعْتُم بِهِ وَذَلِكَ هُوَ الْفَوْزُ الْعَظِيمُ

Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded. That is the supreme success.

meaning, let those who fulfill the terms of this contract and uphold this covenant receive the good news of great success and everlasting delight

Great is hatred in the sight of Allah that you say what you do not do.

English – Footnote (Hilali)

English – Tafsir ibn kathir
Most hateful it is with Allah that you say that which you do not do.

Imam Ahmad and Abu Dawud recorded that Abdullah bin `Amir bin Rabi`ah said,

“Allah’s Messenger came to us while I was a young boy, and I went out to play. My mother said, `O Abdullah! Come, I want to give you something.’ Allah’s Messenger said to her,

وَمَا أَرَدْتِ أَنْ تُعْطِيَهُ

What did you want to give him?

She said, `Dates.’

He said,

أَمَا إِنَّكِ لَوْ لَمْ تَفْعَلِي كُتِبَتْ عَلَيْكِ كَذْبَة

If you had not given them to him, it would have been written as a lie in your record.”

Muqatil bin Hayyan said,

“The faithful believers said, `If we only knew the dearest good actions to Allah, we would perform them.’ Thus, Allah told them about the dearest actions to Him, saying

Go to next ayah for complete tafsir

English – Sahih International
Indeed, Allah loves those who fight in His cause in a row as though they are a [single] structure joined firmly.

English – Footnote (Hilali)
a) Narrated Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri [radhi-yAllahu ‘anhu]: Somebody asked, “O Allah’s Messenger! Who is the best among the people?” Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) replied, “A believer who strives his utmost in Allah’s Cause with his life and property.” They asked, “Who is next?” He replied, “A believer who stays in one of the mountain paths worshipping Allah and leaving the people secure from his mischief.” [Sahih Al-Bukhari, 4/2786 (O.P.45)]

b) See the footnote a) of (V.9:111).

Sura 9 Ayah 111 note:

a) Narrated Abu Hurairah [radhi-yAllahu ‘anhu]: Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “Allah guarantees him who strives in His Cause and whose motivation for going out is nothing but Jihad in His Cause and belief in His Words (Islamic Monotheism), that He will admit him into Paradise (if martyred) or bring him back to his dwelling place whence he has come out with what he gains of reward or booty.”

[Sahih Al-Bukhari, 4/3123 (O.P.352)]

b) Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah [radhi-yAllahu ‘anhu]: On the day of the battle of Uhud, a man came to the Prophet (ﷺ) and said, “Can you tell me where I will be if I should get martyred?” The Prophet (ﷺ) replied, “In Paradise.” The man threw away some dates he was carrying in his hand, and fought till he was martyred.

(Abu Dawud, Hadith No. 3462)

English – Tafsir ibn kathir
إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُحِبُّ الَّذِينَ يُقَاتِلُونَ فِي سَبِيلِهِ صَفًّا

Verily, Allah loves those who fight in His cause in rows,

Allah stated what He likes, and they were tested on the day of Uhud.

However, they retreated and fled, leaving the Prophet behind. It was about their case that Allah revealed this Ayah:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ اَمَنُوا لِمَ تَقُولُونَ مَا لَاا تَفْعَلُونَ

O you who believe! Why do you say that which you do not do

Allah says here, `The dearest of you to Me, is he who fights in My cause.”‘

Some said that it was revealed about the gravity of fighting in battle, when one says that he fought and endured the battle, even though he did not do so.

Qatadah and Ad-Dahhak said that this Ayah was sent down to admonish some people who used to say that they killed, fought, stabbed, and did such and such during battle, even though they did not do any of it.

Sa`id bin Jubayr said about Allah’s statement,
إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُحِبُّ الَّذِينَ يُقَاتِلُونَ فِي سَبِيلِهِ صَفًّا
(Verily, Allah loves those who fight in His cause in rows (ranks)),

“Before Allah’s Messenger began the battle against the enemy, he liked to line up his forces in rows; in this Surah, Allah teaches the believers to do the same.”

He also said that Allah’s statement,

كَأَنَّهُم بُنيَانٌ مَّرْصُوصٌ

as if they were a solid structure.

means, its parts are firmly connected to each other; in rows for battle.

Muqatil bin Hayyan said,

“Firmly connected to each other.”

Ibn `Abbas commented on the meaning of the Ayah,
كَأَنَّهُم بُنيَانٌ مَّرْصُوصٌ
(as if they were a solid structure). by saying,

“They are like a firm structure that does not move, because its parts are cemented to each other.

How to Gain Knowledge

Sun, 07/23/2017 - 02:00

One of the people of the past was asked, how did you gain this knowledge?

He replied, without relying on others, travelling through the lands, patience like the patience of a donkey and going early like the early birds.

The same individual also mentioned that when people saw someone hurrying through the streets, they would think that he is a mad person or a student of knowledge.

Meaning, they wouldn’t waste their time. Even in their going and coming back from places They would hasten!
