Performing Umrah in Ramadan [08 Oct 2006|07:43pm]

___steadfast
Ata (r.a.) narrated that he heard Ibn 'Abbas (r.a.) saying, "Allah's Messenger (s.a.w.s.) asked an Ansari woman, 'What prevented you from performing Hajj with us?' She replied, 'We have a camel and the father of so-and-so and his son (i.e. her husband and her son) rode it and left one camel for us to use for irrigation.' He (s.a.w.s.) said (to her), 'Perform 'Umra when Ramadan comes, for 'Umra in Ramadan is equal to Hajj (in reward),' or said something similar." (Sahih Al-Bukhari)

Ibn 'Abbas (r.a.) narrated that when the Prophet (s.a.w.s.) returned after performing his Hajj, he asked Um Sinan Al-Ansari, "What forbade you to perform Hajj?" She replied, "Father of so-and-so (i.e. her husband) had two camels and he performed Hajj on one of them, and the second is used for the irrigation of our land." The Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said (to her), "Perform 'Umra in the month of Ramadan, (as it is equivalent to Hajj or Hajj with me (in reward)." (Sahih Al-Bukhari)

Virtues of Performing Umrah, How to Perform it etc.

Ramadan Mubarak to all,

I would like to know, with clear references from the Glorious Quran & Hadith, that is it compulsory to kill an apostate of Islam merely because he left Islam & chose another religion.

Thank you in advance.

Islam Denounces Terrorism [12 Sep 2006|07:28pm]

___steadfast
"Permission to fight is given to those who are fought against because they have been wronged -truly Allah has the power to come to their support- those who were expelled from their homes without any right, merely for saying, 'Our Lord is Allah'..." (Qur'an, 22:39-40)

"Fight in the Way of Allah against those who fight you, but do not go beyond the limits. Allah does not love those who go beyond the limits." (Qur'an, 2:190)

_________________________________________________

The Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) reminded believers numerous times about this subject and by his own practice became a role model for others to follow. Indeed, he addressed believers who were about to go to war in the following terms: "Go to war in adherence to the religion of Allah. Never touch the elderly, women or children. Always improve their situation and be kind to them. Allah loves those who are sincere." [Ahmad Diya'al-Din al-Kamushkhanawi, Ramuz al-Ahadith, Vol 1, 84/8)

The Messenger of Allah also clarified the attitude Muslims must adopt even when they are in the middle of a raging battle:
Do not kill children. Avoid touching people who devote themselves to worship in churches! Never murder women and the elderly. Do not set trees on fire or cut them down. Never destroy houses! [Ahmad Diya'al-Din al-Kamushkhanawi, Ramuz al-Ahadith, Vol 1, 76/12]

The Islamic principles Allah proclaims in the Qur'an account for this peaceful and temperate policy of the Prophet Muhammad. In the Qur'an, Allah commands believers to treat the non-Muslims kindly and justly:
"Allah does not forbid you from being good to those who have not fought you over religion or driven you from your homes, or from being just towards them. Allah loves those who are just. Allah merely forbids you from taking friends those who have fought you over religion and driven you from your homes and who supported your expulsion..." (Qur'an, 60:8-9)

The verses above clarify how Muslims should behave towards non-Muslims: A Muslim should treat all non-Muslims kindly and only avoid making friends with those who show enmity towards Islam. In a case where this enmity causes violent attacks against Muslims, that is, where they wage a war against them, then Muslims should respond to them justly by considering the humane dimensions of the situation. All forms of barbarism, unnecessary acts of violence and unjust aggression are forbidden by Islam. In another verse, Allah warns Muslims against this and explains that rage felt towards enemies should not cause them to fall into injustice:
"You who believe! Show integrity for the sake of Allah, bearing witness with justice. Do not let hatred for a people incite you into not being just. Be just. That is closer to heedfulness. Heed Allah (alone). Allah is aware of what you do." (Qur'an, 5:8)

<b>To The Concerned Citizen of The World:</b>

"Killing innocent civilians is NOT an act of self-defense. Destroying a sovereign nation is NOT a measured response."

Lebanese civilians have been under the constant attack of the state of Israel for several days. The State of Israel, in disregard to international law and the Geneva Convention, is launching a maritime and air siege targeting the entire population of the country. Innocent civilians are being collectively punished in Lebanon by the state of Israel in deliberate acts of terrorism as described in Article 33 of the Geneva Convention.

The Lebanese people feel left out by the world that is turning a blind eye on the savagery of the Israeli state. Israel does not seem to be capable of approaching any problem outside the realm of the military power bestowed on it by the government of the United States of America and other western governments.

We are writing you this letter in the hope that this massacre is immediately stopped. It is the universal duty of each individual to defend the innocents and expose the truth. The numerous civilian victims of the Israeli operations are increasing by the hour. The viciousness of the attacks has attained terrifying levels where a child has been cut in three while another was half burned.

The Israeli war machine, in its blind savagery, is destroying not only our lives but the foundations that could help the civilians survive beyond their massacre. The Israeli Defense Forces are destroying in few hours what Lebanon has spent years and billions of dollars to rebuild.

Up until now more than 100 Lebanese civilians have been killed, hundreds wounded, bridges and infrastructure destroyed, refugees are leaving Beirut in droves and worst of all the enforced siege might lead to a human catastrophe in the next 48 hours. There must be an end to this cycle of violence and continuous violation of international laws and basic ethical behavior.

Between the blindness of the international community and the deafness of the Arab one, the besieged Lebanese population has no way out.

The wisdom behind calamities [12 Jul 2006|12:07am]

___steadfast
Question #35914: I often hear that there is great wisdom behind the calamities that befall people. What is this wisdom?

Answer:

Praise be to Allaah.

Yes, there is great wisdom behind calamities, including the following:

1 – To attain true submission and servitude (‘uboodiyyah) to Allaah, the Lord of the Worlds.

Many people are slaves to their whims and desires and are not true slaves of Allaah. They say that they are slaves of Allaah, but when they are tested they turn on their heels and lose out in this world and in the Hereafter, and that is an evident loss. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“And among mankind is he who worships Allaah as it were upon the edge (i.e. in doubt): if good befalls him, he is content therewith; but if a trial befalls him he turns back on his face (i.e. reverts to disbelief after embracing Islam). He loses both this world and the Hereafter. That is the evident loss”

Somalia Well Project UPDATE

Our most recent well digging project in Somalia has been completed!  We have wells in the middle and lower Shabelle regions that are providing clean water to area villages.  Many people are receiving their first local clean water in over a decade.

The field report reads:
“As a result of the [recurring] droughts in Somalia for the last two decades and the absence of effective central government for the last 16 years in Somalia, the requirements of implementing water projects in the droughts affected areas are of great importance to the local communities.”

Our wells were dug in regions where the distance between the ground surface and the aquifer was only about 30 meters (approx. 100 feet) and thereby were able to provide clean and safe water to many communities at a low cost.

Over 400 families benefited from each well dug in these areas.

Insh’allah, we would love to continue these sorts of programs to provide clean water to areas in the world where people are forced to drinking disease and filth-ridden water or simply go without.  Please continue to support our well-digging programs so that we can provide this source of life and renewal across the globe.

Dreams and dream interpretation [11 Jun 2006|02:18pm]

___steadfast
Question:
dream interpretation in islaam..i've got a book by ibn-sirine... i want more details about it..

Answer:

Praise be to Allaah.

1. True dreams are a part of Prophethood, as it was reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “True dreams are one of the forty-six parts of Prophethood.” (al-Bukhaari, 6472; Muslim, 4201)

2. Dreams marked the onset of Revelation (al-Bukhaari, 3; Muslim, 231).

3. The truthfulness of the dream is related to the sincerity of the dreamer. Those who have the most truthful dreams are those who are the most truthful in speech. (Muslim, 4200)

4. Towards the end of time, hardly any dreams will be untrue. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “That will be because the Prophethood and its effects will be so far away in time, so the believers will be given some compensation in the form of dreams which will bring them some good news or will help them to be patient and steadfast in their faith.” (al-Bukhaari, 6499; Muslim, 4200)

The same may be said of the miracles which appeared after the time of the Sahaabah. This did not happen during their time because they did not need them, due to their strong faith, but the people who came after them needed them (the miracles) because their faith was weak.

5. Dreams are of three types: rahmaani (those that come from Allaah), nafsaani (psychological, they come from within a person) and shaytaani (those that come from the Shaytaan). The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Dreams are of three types: a dream from Allaah, a dream which causes distress and which comes from the Shaytaan, and a dream which comes from what a person thinks about when he is awake, and he sees it when he is asleep.” (al-Bukhaari, 6499; Muslim, 4200) Read more...Collapse )

Letter dated May 28th, 2006:

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah, peace and blessings be with you.

As you may already know, on May 27, 2006 an earthquake measuring 6.2 on the Richter scale struck Indonesia and killed more than 5000 people. On the southern coast of Java, cities like Bantul and Yogyakarta are the hardest hit.

In December of 2004 a tsunami devastated Indonesia, killing around 200,000 people and much of Indonesia has not yet recovered from this disaster.


The cities are without electricity and telecommunications as homes have been destroyed and people are trying to save their beloved family members from the rubble with their bare hands.

By the grace of God (SWT), The Zakat Foundation has been able to organize its efforts with local organizations and have donated 100 tents and desperately needed medical supplies. We do need your help urgently.

What can you do?

Please pray for the victims and their families either as an individual du’a or in the Mosques as a group.
$10 will deliver hot meals to the victims
$200 will provide a heavy-duty tent for a family
Donate for more medical supplies and care.
If you have any questions of concerns please do not hesitate to contact us by telephone at 1-866-499-6151 or email us: info@thezakat.org

Wassalamu Alaikum, Peace and Blessings
Your Brother in Islam,
Khalil Demir
Director of The Zakat Foundation of America


* Since this letter we have continued to dispach aid in the form of tents, food, medicine and a team of relief workers was dispached from our Turkish partners. We are supporting all of these efforts and have pledged $40,000 in material aid (not including manpower, etc) so far only $15,000 has been donated to help The Zakat Foundation and our partners in this work. Please Share... Show you Care.

The Road to Paradise [28 May 2006|06:20am]

___steadfast
The Road to Paradise
by Dr. `Abdullah al-Shimemeri


Certainly the ultimate goal of every Muslim is Paradise. As with all aspects of the Unseen, it can be only imagined through analogy, yet its realities are far beyond description in any human language. Allah (subhaanahu wa ta`aala) has prepared for His servants, "what no eye has seen and no ear has heard and has never occurred to a human heart." [al-Bukhaari, Muslim and others] This eternal home is not limited to what is described here of material and spiritual enjoyments, for it includes "all the soul has longed for" and finally, the greatest and most complete pleasure beyond all imagination - the presence and nearness of the Creator Himself.

Who are the inheritors of such blessing? Who are the souls worthy of such reward?

It is common belief among Muslims today that anyone who professes "La Ilaha ill-Allah" and "Muhammadun Rasoolullah" will enter Paradise. Yet this testimony is more than a statement of the tongue. Read more...Collapse )

Strengthening the Motive of Reason and Religion [28 May 2006|05:58am]

___steadfast
In the battle between reason/religion and whims/desires, we have the following weapons at our disposal:
1. We should remember the glory and greatness of Allah, and feel that He is too great to be sinned against as He is All-Seeing and All-Hearing. Whoever thinks of the greatness of Allah will never be at ease in committing wrong actions.
2. If we claim to love Allah, then we should not disobey Him, because of that love. A person should be obedient to the One he claims to love. Those who refrain from committing wrong action out of their love for Allah are of the highest status in His sight, as are those who worship Him out of love for Him. There is a great difference between the one who obeys Allah and abstains from wrong action Out of love, and the one who does so out of fear of punishment.
3. We should think of the blessings and favours of Allah, as a decent and noble person would never act against the one who has been treating him kindly- Only base and ignoble people do such a thing. If we think of the blessings and favours of Allah, we will realize that we should not respond by going against His commands and committing wrong action. Read more...Collapse )

TESTS WE GO THROUGH IN OUR LIVES

by Abul 'Ala Morshed


"It is Allah who has created death and life so that he may test who among you is best in deed. And He is the All-Mighty, Oft-Forgiving". [al-Mulk 67:2]

The Prophet (saw) used to recite the whole surah before going to bed. He said about this surah: "This, containing thirty verses, intercedes for a person till his/her sins are forgiven" [Ahmad, Tirmidhi]. He has also said, "I love that it be in the heart of every believer" [Hakim]. This surah is also recited while putting down the dead in the grave.

Some explanations of this ayah suggest that this ayah means that our lives will be full of tests and trials till death (the final test). The rest of the surah talks about the consequences of failing or passing the tests and concepts that will help us ace those tests.

To benefit from this surah we need to understand the nature and characteristics of test and trials that Allah will put us through.

Nature of the tests

First of all, we should know that Allah does not only put non-believers through tests but also the believers. Otherwise the prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, would not have gone through numerous tests throughout his life. We will be no exception. Allah tests His beloved servants the most.

Secondly, we should know that Allah tests us through both hardship and ease. Allah tests us using things that we like to possess and also with things that we do not. Allah tests us using hardships like death, financial, physical, and academic difficulties. He tests us through luxury, good health, and academics successes.

When Allah tests us using hardships He wants to see if we ask Him alone for help and relief or do we turn to others beside Him. He tests us through ease to see if we thank Him for the blessings or do we claim that it was because of our own doing.

We should know that our eyes, hands, legs, strength, and beauty are all means to test who among us is good in deeds. If we use our eyes to look at nakedness, if we use our hands to touch things that we are not supposed to touch, if we use our feet to go to places that we are not supposed to go, if we use our strength to oppress others, if we use our beauty to lure others to commit sins then we surely have failed the test. But if we use our eyes to read the Qur'an, Hadith, and Islamic literature, if we use our hands to help others, if we use our feet to go to masajid, if we use our strength to work in the way of Allah like doing Da'wah, if we preserve our beauty by adorning the hijab and loose dresses and thank Allah for all his bounties on us, then we have aced the test and will be rewarded both in this world and the hereafter.

Thirdly, we should know that tests are not always direct i.e. they do not always affect us personally. For example, what is happening in places like Palestine, Chechnya, Kashmir, Turkey in fact in almost all of the Muslims lands like oppression, killing may not necessarily affect us Muslims who live in the luxuries of the West. But nonetheless what is happening to them is also a test for us. But most of the time we fail to realize that.

That is why we hear Muslims in the West making comments like "Those Palestinians deserve it, they have deviated from Islam", "They aren't good Muslims", etc. We fail to realize that the condition of our brothers and sisters in Palestine is like it is now because of the 50 years of oppressive occupation. And we are to blame for it. Just ask yourselves how much have you done to end the occupation so that they could focus on improving their understanding and practice of Islam.

Through these indirect tests Allah wants to test how much pain we feel for those brothers and sisters, how much we spend for them, how much have we done to end their miseries. He wants to see if we speak out in their support or not.

Most important of all Allah wants to test if we learn lessons from their situation or not. We need to learn lessons of sacrifice, patience, sincerity, and determination from them. We also need to learn from their mistakes so that we do not repeat them.

When we look at the struggles they go through, both young and old, we cannot say we're too young to work for Allah's cause. We cannot say we are too busy to spend time or too poor to spend money. Because if young children of Palestine can sacrifice their lives then what excuse do we have? If the poor people of Bangladesh can donate money for the cause of Islam then what excuse do we have?

Fourthly, we should know that tests are not always tangible. Tests can also be through mediums that we cannot touch like our knowledge, intellect, wisdom, and time. Allah gives those to some of us to see how well we use them, if we do at all. He wants to see if we use our knowledge to help improve the conditions of the Muslims or not. He wants to see if we use our wisdom and intellect to invite others to follow Islam completely or not. He wants to see if we spend time for His cause or not.

Those of us who possess any knowledge of Islam should propagate it to others. It is our responsibility. If we fail to do that then we have failed the test.

Lastly, we should keep in mind that we always have the opportunity to ask Allah's forgiveness if we fail any of those tests. That is what the last portion of the ayah points to that "Allah is the All-Mighty and Oft-Forgiving". Do not despair of Allah's Mercy. Indeed, Allah forgives sins abundantly.

Test preparation

After knowing the nature of the tests that Allah puts us through, we need to equip ourselves with the tools and methods that will enable us to ace those tests, insha-Allah:

The first and foremost beneficial tool is the Qur'an. We need to understand it as much as we can. We should study it every day because we face tests from Allah every day. The Qur'an is the textbook to prepare us for the tests.

The second tool is the history of the prophets, especially Muhammad, peace be upon him, since we have almost all of his life recorded and the history of Sahabas (companions) and the rightly-guided Muslims. Reading and pondering over their lives will give us ideas on how to deal with the tests that Allah puts us through. They are like past exams. They have been through the tests and have passed them.

The third tool is 'Ibaadah (worship) through Salah (prayers), Sawm (fasting), Hajj (pilgrimage),?i> Zakah (charity), etc. They are like homework to prepare us for the tests. They give us the moral strength to pass the tests Allah puts us through.

The fourth tool is our company of righteous people. They will comfort us when we face calamities and will remind us of our duties when we are relatively comfortable. It is very difficult to go through some tests alone. Like we do with academic tests, we need to be with those who remind us of Allah and of our responsibilities. Righteous companions are like study groups to help us pass the tests.

May Allah help us all to pass the tests He puts us through so that we may be successful in this world and in the hereafter.

Fluctuations of Life: Tests for Believers [06 Apr 2006|11:22am]

_travisstone_
A person s life in this world is not stable. One passes through alternating periods of happiness and dismay, strength and weakness, wealth and
poverty, health and sickness, etc. A true believer is one who maintains a clear level of faith throughout the worldly fluctuations. He continues to remember
Allah and ascribe the bounties to Him, and he turns to Him in submission, asking for relief from his affliction. This is described by the Messenger (peace
be upon him), who said: Indeed amazing are the affairs of a believer! They are all for his benefit. If he is granted ease of living he is thankful; and this is best for him. And if he is afflicted with a hardship, he perseveres; and this is best for him. (Muslim)

Thus, a believer shows gratitude and thankfulness for all the wonderful blessings that Allah grants him. And he displays patience and submission during
sickness and hardships, hunger, or other afflictions.

Hardships benefit the believer

Allah has decreed that, in this life, hardships and disasters strike both believers and non-believers. For a non-believer, they are inconveniences that hinder him from proceeding with his normal involvement in the worldly life.

Expiations of sins

Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet said, Hardships continue to befall a believing man and woman in their body,
family, and property, until they meet Allah burdened with no sins.
(At-Tirmidhi)

Hadith -Among the Smaller Signs of the Day of Judgement- [24 Mar 2006|10:57pm]

___steadfast
Abu Hurairah (R.A.) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (S.A.W.S.) said:


"قبل الساعة سنون خدّاعة يكذب فيها الصّادق و يصدّق فيها الكذوب، و يخون فيها الأمين، و يؤتمن فيها الخائن و ينطق فيها الرّويبضة."

"Indeed, before the Hour (Day of Judgement) there are deceptive years -the truthful one will not be believed, the liar will be believed, the trustworthy one will be accused of betrayal, the treacherous one will be trusted, and the Ruwaibidah will speak."

It was said, "And what is the Ruwaibidah?" He (S.A.W.S.) said:


"الرجل التّافه يتكلّم في أمر العامّة"

"The man who is Tafih (insignificant, unwise, etc.), he will speak on the affairs of the general public (he will be trusted to rule and he will speak in the name of the people)."

Ahmad (2/291) Ibn Maajah (4042), and Al-Haakim (4/465).
In As-Saheeh (1787), Albaani declared that it is an authentic Hadith.
