Allah Ta'ala is the Guardian of His Deen and He alone will protect it till the last day. As a means, in every era Allah Ta'ala used the
Ulama-e-Haq and His true servants to dispel any confusion and deviation from any quarter. Thus over the centuries despite the many attacks on Deen by the deviant groups, by means of the tireless efforts of the Ulama-e-Haq Allah Ta'ala has preserved the Deen in its pristine purity. This will Insha Allah continue till Qiyaamah.

This treatise has been prepared to dispel the myth that the mazahib of the four Imaams of fiqh (viz. Imaam Abu Hanifa, Imaam Maalik, Imaam Shafi'ee and Imaam Ahmad bin Hambal [Rahimahumullah]) are not based on sound proofs from the sources of Shari'ah, viz the Qur'an, Sunnah, Ijma' and Qiyaas, in particular with regard to the Salaah of females.

The rapid progress of technology has provided mankind with many useful items and instruments and also created many challenges. Among the various “two-edged swords” that technology has dished out, which are in almost every person’s hands, are the cell-phone and the internet. While the benefits of these items are numerous, the misuse or abuse of the same has already resulted in havoc and devastation in many people’s lives. Therefore, everything that technology dishes out is not to be immediately grabbed with both hands. First its position in Shariah must be properly ascertained, whether it falls within the limits of permissibility or not. If it is permissible, what are its limits? Despite being permissible in principle, would its use affect other Shari’ objectives? All these aspects have to be carefully considered before any view can be expressed. In particular, the question of digital photography demands that the highest levels of caution be exercised in ascertaining its Shari’ position.

Contentment – The key to curbing man’s desires

relaxing-640Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) writes:

It is a common observation and a fact proven through experience that man, regardless of how much wealth he may acquire, never remains satisfied and content with his lot. With the exception of a few blessed servants of Allah Ta’ala, this is the general condition of man. It is for this reason we find that earnest exhortation and encouragement towards contentment is given in various places of the Holy Qur’an and Ahaadith. This is essential so that man’s insatiable appetite for wealth be curbed to some extent. (Fazaail-e-Sadaqaat [urdu], Part 2 –pg.369)

Ali bin Saalih (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) on his Deathbed

baqee2Abdullah bin Moosa says: “I was once on a journey when Ali bin Saalih (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) passed away. When I returned, I visited his brother Hasan bin Saalih to pay my condolences and was overtaken by weeping. His brother said: “Listen to his story first before you weep. His story is unique and one of great pleasure. He asked me to bring him water while he was in the throes of death. When I took it to him, he said: “I have already drunk.” I asked him who had provided it. He replied: “Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) came with numerous rows of angels and provided me with water.” I asked him (to ensure he was in his senses) How were the rows of angels formed?” He replied: “One above the other.” (Final Moments of the Pious pg. 144)

Reciting Ten Aayaat of Surah Baqarah at Night

sun raysOne should recite the following ten Aayaat at night; the four beginning verses of Surah Baqarah, Aayatul Kursi and its following two verses, and the last three verses of Surah Baqarah.

عن الشعبي قال : قال عبد الله يعني ابن مسعود رضي الله عنه : من قرأ عشر آيات من سورة البقرة في بيت لم يدخل ذلك البيت شيطان تلك الليلة حتى يصبح أربع آيات من أولها وآية الكرسي وآيتين بعدها وخواتيمها رواه الطبراني ورجاله رجال الصحيح إلا أن الشعبي لم يسمع من ابن مسعود (مجمع الزوائد رقم 17013)

It is reported that Hadhrat Abdullah bin Mas’ood (Radhiyallahu Anhu) said: “Whoever recites the following ten verses of Surah Baqarah in a house, Shaytaan will not enter that house for that night till the morning; the beginning four verses of the surah, Aayatul Kursi and its following two verses, and the last three verses of the surah.”

Shamaail – Hadith 4

Musjid Minaretعن البراء بن عازب قال : ما رأيت من ذي لمة في حلة حمراء أحسن من رسول الله ، له شعر يضرب منكبيه ، بعيد ما بين المنكبين ، لم يكن بالقصير ولا بالطويل.

Hadhrat Baraa’ bin Aazib (Radiyallahu Anhu) reports: I have never seen anyone with long hair and dressed in red-coloured clothing more handsome than Sayyidina Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). His hair reached his shoulders. The area between his mubaarak shoulders was broad. He was neither very tall nor very short (instead his height was moderate, slightly inclined towards being tall).

Commentary

The description of the mubaarak hair of Sayyidina Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) recorded in this Hadith differs from the description given in the aforementioned Hadith which states that the length of his mubaarak hair was till his earlobes. In reality there is no contradiction between these both Ahaadith, as it is known that the hair does not always remain the same length. At times the hair is short, and at times, it grows and becomes long. At times one intentionally shortens one’s hair and at times one allows it to grow long.

يَا رَبِّ صَلِّ وَ سَلِّمْ دَائِمًا أَبَدًا عَلَى حَبِيبِكَ خَيرِ الخَلْقِ كُلِّهِمِ

Doing Business for Allah Ta’ala

City centreWe have the option of doing business just to see digits turning and to gain material progress, and the other is that you are doing it purely for the sake of Allah Ta‘ala and in the manner that is pleasing to Allah Ta‘ala. When this is the outlook, then Allah Ta‘ala becomes yours, and if you do it for the material then you will get the material. If you do it for Allah Ta‘ala then you will get Allah Ta‘ala and Allah Ta‘ala is forever, so He will see to you forever. The material will only see to you for as long as it lasts. Otherwise, it will not bring that honour and respect that you are desirous of.
