General Islamic Discussions / How The Prophet Is Among and Purifying Us.
« Last post by Abu Hafsat on October 22, 2019, 10:05:55 PM »
 :salam:

 In ayat 151 of Surat Baqara of the Holy Qur'an (2:151), we have read it:--

    "Just as We have sent among [within] you an Apostle from your own,
    reciting to you Our Signs, and purifying you, and instructing [teaching]
    you the Book and its Wisdom; and teaching you new knowledge which
    you did not know."

In this ayat, we come to know that not only is the Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, is amongst us, but also is within us. When light comes to be present in a place, it diffuses into everything. And the Prophet, alaihi salaat was-salaam, is the first of light(s) that emanated from the Immense Ocean of the Divine Being.

 A simple analogy of light is that it has an in-built capacity/capability to push through all darkness. Just one light is enough to illuminate infinite amount of darkness. That is the significance of light; that is the greatness of the Mercy of Allah, Azzah Wa Jallah.... that as much as we put ourselves into darkness, all it takes is but one light, one candle, one pilot light for Allah Ta'ala to open and immediately that light will push away the darkness.

 The Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:--

       "Whoever sends one blessing(s) [praises...sallaa alaiya] upon me, Allah will shower
        His blessings upon him 10 times, and will erase 10 of his sins, and elevate [raise]
        his [spiritual] station 10 times." (Hadith recorded by Nisa'i)

Just as by turning one candle on in your dark room at home, all darkness therein is pushed away, as soon as you make SALAWAAT ALA NABIY, the light of the Prophet, alaihi Salaat Was-Salaam, comes and begin to purify and cleanse you.

Fatwas & Rulings / Re: Emulating the kuffar

Advertising diwali specials

Q: I run a supermarket. Can I come up with offers that target Hindu clientele e.g. Diwali 20 percent off or Raksha Bandan offers? As a Muslim, can I use Hindu big days to come up with offers for Hindu clientele?



A: It is not at all permissible to show any type of respect to any kuffaar celebration or festival or associate with it in any way. A believer should totally refrain from this.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

عن ابن عمر رضي الله عنهما قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم من تشبه بقوم فهو منهم (سنن أبي داود، الرقم: 4033)

من تشبه بقوم أي من شبه نفسه بالكفار مثلا في اللباس وغيره أو بالفساق أو الفجار أو بأهل التصوف والصلحاء الأبرار فهو منهم أي في الإثم والخير (مرقاة المفاتيح 4/431)

خرج عمر بن الخطاب إلى الشام ومعنا أبو عبيدة بن الجراح فأتوا على مخاضة وعمر على ناقة له فنزل عنها وخلع خفيه فوضعهما على عاتقه وأخذ بزمام ناقته فخاض بها المخاضة فقال أبو عبيدة يا أمير المؤمنين أنت تفعل هذا تخلع خفيك وتضعهما على عاتقك وتأخذ بزمام ناقتك وتخوض بها المخاضة ما يسرني أن أهل البلد استشرفوك فقال عمر أوه لم يقل ذا غيرك أبا عبيدة جعلته نكالا لأمة محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم إنا كنا أذل قوم فأعزنا الله بالإسلام فمهما نطلب العزة بغير ما أعزنا الله به أذلنا الله (المستدرك على الصحيحين للحاكم، الرقم: 207)

يكفر بوضع قلنسوة المجوس على رأسه على الصحيح إلا لضرورة دفع الحر والبرد وبشد الزنار في وسطه إلا إذا فعل ذلك خديعة في الحرب وطليعة للمسلمين وبقوله المجوس خير مما أنا فيه يعني فعله ... وبخروجه إلى نيروز المجوس لموافقته معهم فيما يفعلون في ذلك اليوم وبشرائه يوم النيروز شيئا لم يكن يشتريه قبل ذلك تعظيما للنيروز لا للأكل والشرب وبإهدائه ذلك اليوم للمشركين ولو بيضة تعظيما لذلك لا بإجابة دعوة مجوسي حلق رأس ولده وبتحسين أمر الكفار اتفاقا حتى قالوا لو قال ترك الكلام عند أكل الطعام حسن من المجوس أو ترك المضاجعة حالة الحيض منهم حسن فهو كافر كذا في البحر الرائق (الفتاوى الهندية 2/276)

وبيع المكعب المفضض للرجل إن ليلبسه يكره لأنه إعانة على لبس الحرام وإن كان إسكافا أمره إنسان أن يتخذ له خفا على زي المجوس أو الفسقة أو خياطا أمره أن يتخذ له ثوبا على زي الفساق يكره له أن يفعل لأنه سبب التشبه بالمجوس والفسقة اهـ (رد المحتار 6/392)

Bismillah Walhamdulillah Was Salaatu Was Salaam 'ala Rasulillah

Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri (Radi-Allahu 'anhu):

The Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, "When the people of
Paradise will enter Paradise and the people of Hell will go to Hell, Allah
will order those who have had faith equal to the weight of a grain of
mustard seed to be taken out from Hell. So they will be taken out but (by
then) they will be blackened (charred). Then they will be put in the river
of Haya' (rain) or Hayat (life) (the Narrator is in doubt as to which is
the right term), and they will revive like a grain that grows near the bank
of a flood channel. Don't you see that it comes out yellow and twisted"

Bismillah Walhamdulillah Was Salaatu Was Salaam 'ala Rasulillah

Narrated 'Aisha (Radi-Allahu 'anha):

Whenever Allah's Apostle (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) ordered the Muslims
to do something, he used to order them deeds which were easy for them to
do, (according to their strength endurance). They said, "O Allah's Apostle!
We are not like you. Allah has forgiven your past and future sins." So
Allah's Apostle (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) became angry and it was
apparent on his face. He said, "I am the most Allah fearing, and know Allah
better than all of you do."

Narrated 'Umar bin Al-Khattab (Radi-Allahu 'anhu):

I heard Allah's Apostle (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) saying, "The reward
of deeds depends upon the intentions and every person will get the reward
according to what he has intended. So whoever emigrated for worldly
benefits or for a woman to marry, his emigration was for what he emigrated
for."

Bismillah Walhamdulillah Was Salaatu Was Salaam 'ala Rasulillah

Narrated Ibn 'Abbas (Radi-Allahu 'anhu):

Regarding the explanation of the Verse:-- '(O Muhammad!) Neither say your
prayer aloud, nor say it in a low tone.' (17.110)

This Verse was revealed while Allah's Apostle (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa
Sallam) was hiding himself at Makkah. At that time, when he led his
companions in prayer, he used to raise his voice while reciting the Qur'an;
and if the pagans heard him, they would abuse the Qur'an, its Revealer, and
the one who brought it.

So Allah said to His Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam): "Neither say
your prayer aloud. i.e., your recitation (of Qur'an) lest the pagans should
hear (it) and abuse the Quran," nor say it in a low tone, "lest your voice
should fail to reach your companions, but follow a way between." (17.110)

'Are you satisfied?' They will say, 'Why shouldn't we be satisfied O our
Lord, as You have given us what You have not given to any of Your created
beings?' He will say, 'Shall I not give you something better than that?'
They will say, 'O our Lord! What else could be better than that?' He will
say, 'I bestow My Pleasure on you and will never be angry with you after
that.' "
