    Perpetual Zikr

    Perpetual Zikr (English with Urdu Translation) Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Your tongue should remain ever fresh with Thikrullah.” The Name of Allah Ta’ala has to be compulsorily on the tongue of the Mu’min throughout the day. When retiring for the night, fall asleep with Allah’s Thikr. Then every breath will be recorded as a Tasbeeh, and an Angel will guard you throughout the night. Perpetual Thikr is not the customary, bid’ah forms of ‘halqah’ (circle) thikr sessions which some miscreant fake ‘sufis’ conduct in the public in Musaajid to lure and impress the public. Perpetual Thikr is to constantly keep the tongue moving with Thikr – any form – preferably Laa ilaha il lallaah. Ultimately, such thikr of the tongue will become embedded and entrenched in the heart. The heart will then become alert and remain wakeful in Allah’s remembrance. The heart will then be adorned with Noor. Be constant with Thikr whilst walking, sitting, working and in all walks of life. Such Thikrullah will create an aversion for futile talk, leave alone sinful conversation. Do not be concerned if you do not perceive any emotional effect of the Thikr on your heart. Your obligation is to engage in Thikrullah. The effects of spiritual sweetness, pleasure and tenderness of the heart are beyond one’s power of acquisition. Such effects are bounties which Allah Ta’ala awards according to His Will and Wisdom. Be concerned with issues within your volitional control. The emotional effect is also largely reliant on the manner in which one conducts one’s daily life. A person who soils his eyes, ears, mind, etc. with whatsapp, facebook, television, staring at ghair mahaareem, etc., etc., should not expect any emotional state for his Thikr. Nevertheless, despite his indulgence in these evils, he should not abandon Thikrullaah. Constancy in Thikrullaah will, Insha-Allah, ultimately create an aversion for these activities of sin. The Qur’aan Majeed says: “I have not created jinn and man except that they worship Me.” Thus Thikrullaah is the primary objective for which Allah Ta’ala has created us. All other activities such as Jihad, Tableegh, Knowledge, and every other laudable deed are all secondary in relation to Thikrullaah. [By Hazrat Maulana Ahmad Sadeq Desai] Taken from Reliable fatwas

  6. Being More Concerned of One’s Reformation than the Reformation of Others Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned: There is a great need for each person to be concerned about his own reformation and to correct his actions. Nowadays, we find that people have fallen into the sickness of worrying about other people’s weaknesses while they are unconcerned about their own reformation. This can be compared to a person who is more concerned about looking after the shoes of others while his own shoes and luggage get stolen due to him being unconcerned about them. How foolish is the action of such a person! (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 23/56) Source: Ihyaauddeen.co.za
  7. سکینت والی آیات۔ ۔ ۔ جو غم، کمزوری اور بے قراری دور کرتی ہیں ابن القیم رحمہ اللہ فرماتے ہیں: جب کبھی شیخ الاسلام ابنِ تیمیہ رحمہ اللہ پر معاملات شدت اختیار کر لیتے (مشکلات آتیں) تو وہ آیاتِ سکینہ کی تلاوت فرماتے۔ ایک بار انہیں ایک حیرت انگیز اورناقابل فہم واقعہ انکی بیماری میں پیش آیا جب شیطانی ارواح کمزوری کی حالت میں ان پر غالب آئیں، میں نے انہیں کہتےسنا، وہ فرماتے ہیں، "جب یہ معاملہ زیادہ زور پکڑ گیا تو میں نے اپنے رشتے داروں اور ارد گرد کے لوگوں سے کہا، "آیاتِ سکینہ پڑھو"۔ کہتے ہیں، "پھر میری یہ کیفیت ختم ہو گئی، اور میں اٹھ کر بیٹھ گیا ( ٹھیک ہو گیا) اور مجھے کوئی بیماری باقی نہ رہی"۔ اسی طرح، میں نے بھی اضطراب قلب دور کرنے کے لئے ان آیات کی تلاوت کا تجربہ کیا۔ اور حقیقتاً اس میں سکون اور اطمینان کے حوالے سے بڑی تاثیر پائی۔ سکینت اصل میں وہ اطمینان، وقار اور سکون ہے جو اللہ اپنے بندے کے دل پر اس وقت اُتارتا ہے جب وہ شدتِ خوف کی وجہ سے لاحق اضطراب کے باوجود اس سے خفا نہیں ہوتا۔ اور اِس سے اُس کے ایمان، قوتِ یقین اور مثبت سوچ میں اضافہ ہوتا ہے۔ تہذیب مدارج السالکین از ابن القیّم رحِمهُ اللّٰه (باب: منزلة السکینة، ج: 2، ص: 502) آیات سکینۃ یہ ہیں: 1- ( وَقَالَ لَهُمْ نِبِيّهُمْ إِنّ آيَةَ مُلْكِهِ أَن يَأْتِيَكُمُ التّابُوتُ فِيهِ سَكِينَةٌ مّن رّبّكُمْ وَبَقِيّةٌ مّمّا تَرَكَ آلُ مُوسَىَ وَآلُ هَارُونَ تَحْمِلُهُ الْمَلآئِكَةُ إِنّ فِي ذَلِكَ لاَيَةً لّكُمْ إِن كُنْتُـم مّؤْمِنِينَ) [البقرة: 248] 1- اور ان کے نبی نے ان سے فرمایا کہ اس کی بادشاہت کی علامت یہ ہو گی کہ تمہارے پاس وہ تابوت (واپس) آجائے گا جس میں تمہارے رب کی طرف سے تسکین بھی ہے اور آل موسیٰ اور آلِ ہارون کے چھوڑے ہوئے بقیہ جات بھی ہیں جسے فرشتے اٹھائے ہوئے ہوں گے۔ یقینا اس میں تمہارے لیے ایک (بڑی) نشانی ہے اگر تم ایمان لانے والے ہو۔ [البقرہ : 248] 2- ( ثُمّ أَنَزلَ اللّهُ سَكِينَتَهُ عَلَىَ رَسُولِهِ وَعَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَأَنزَلَ جُنُوداً لّمْ تَرَوْهَا وَعذّبَ الّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ وَذَلِكَ جَزَآءُ الْكَافِرِينَ) [التوبة:26] 2- پھر اللہ (سبحانہ و تعالیٰ) نے اپنے رسول اور مومنوں پر اپنی سکینت نازل کی اور ایسے لشکر بھیجے جنہیں تم نہیں دیکھ سکتے تھے، اور کافروں کو عذاب دیا، اور کافروں کا یہی بدلہ ہے [التوبہ : 26] 3- ( إِلاّ تَنصُرُوهُ فَقَدْ نَصَرَهُ اللّهُ إِذْ أَخْرَجَهُ الّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ ثَانِيَ اثْنَيْنِ إِذْ هُمَا فِي الْغَارِ إِذْ يَقُولُ لِصَاحِبِهِ لاَ تَحْزَنْ إِنّ اللّهَ مَعَنَا فَأَنزَلَ اللّهُ سَكِينَتَهُ عَلَيْهِ وَأَيّدَهُ بِجُنُودٍ لّمْ تَرَوْهَا وَجَعَلَ كَلِمَةَ الّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ السّفْلَىَ وَكَلِمَةُ اللّهِ هِيَ الْعُلْيَا وَاللّهُ عَزِيزٌ حَكِيمٌ) [التوبة:40] 3- اگر تم اسکی مدد نہیں کرو گے تو اللّٰہ (سبحانہ وتعالیٰ) اسکی مدد اسوقت بھی کر چکے ہیں جب انہیں کافروں نے نکال دیا تھا، جب وہ ان دو میں سے ایک تھا۔ جب وہ دونوں غار میں تھے، اسوقت وہ اپنے ساتھی سے کہہ رہا تھا "غم نہ کرو، بے شک اللہ ہمارے ساتھ ہے"، تو اللّٰہ نے اس پر اپنی سکینت اتار دی اور نظر نہ آنے والے لشکروں کے ذریعے اس کی مدد فرمائی اور کافروں کی بات کو پست کر دکھایا اور اللہ ہی کی بات بلند ہے اور اللّٰہ بہت زبردست، خوب حکمت والا ہے [التوبہ : 40] 4- ( هُوَ الّذِيَ أَنزَلَ السّكِينَةَ فِي قُلُوبِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ لِيَزْدَادُوَاْ إِيمَاناً مّعَ إِيمَانِهِمْ وَلِلّهِ جُنُودُ السّمَاوَاتِ وَالأرْضِ وَكَانَ اللّهُ عَلِيماً حَكِيماً ) [الفتح:4] 4- وہی ذات ہے جس نے مومنوں کے دلوں میں سکینت اتاری تاکہ وہ اپنے ایمان میں اضافہ کریں اور اللّٰہ ہی کے لیے زمین و آسمان کے لشکر ہیں اور اللّٰہ تعالیٰ بہت علم والا، خوب حکمت والا ہے [الفتح : 4] 5- ( لّقَدْ رَضِيَ اللّهُ عَنِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ إِذْ يُبَايِعُونَكَ تَحْتَ الشّجَرَةِ فَعَلِمَ مَا فِي قُلُوبِهِمْ فَأنزَلَ السّكِينَةَ عَلَيْهِمْ وَأَثَابَهُمْ فَتْحاً قَرِيباً ) [الفتح:18] 5- اللہ تعالیٰ ان مومنین سے اسی وقت راضی ہو چکا تھا جب وہ درخت کے نیچے بیعت کر رہے تھے، وہ ان کے دلوں کے حال سے واقف تھا، پھر اس نے ان پر سکینت اتاری اور قریبی فتح سے ہم کنار کیا [الفتح : 18] 6-( إِذْ جَعَلَ الّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ فِي قُلُوبِهِمُ الْحَمِيّةَ حَمِيّةَ الْجَاهِلِيّةِ فَأَنزَلَ اللّهُ سَكِينَتَهُ عَلَىَ رَسُولِهِ وَعَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَأَلْزَمَهُمْ كَلِمَةَ التّقْوَىَ وَكَانُوَاْ أَحَقّ بِهَا وَأَهْلَهَا وَكَانَ اللّهُ بِكُلّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيماً ) [الفتح:26] 6- جب کافروں نے اپنے دلوں میں جاہلیت والی ضد پال لی تو اللّٰہ تعالیٰ نے اپنے رسول اور مومنوں پر اپنی سکینت اتاری اور انکو تقوی کی بات پر جما دیا جس کے وہ سب سے زیادہ حقدار اور اہل تھے، اور اللّٰہ ہر چیز کو خوب جاننے والا ہے [الفتح : 26]

    Sunlight – Avoid or Bask in?

    Sunlight – Avoid or Bask in? QUESTION Here is something that has confused me for some time. One hadith advising us to avoid direct sunlight and other advice not to avoid sunshine as it is our bath. Could you please elaborate on how one should look at these two hadith and act on the sunnah in the proper manner. Jazaakumullah Avoid direct sunlight Rasulullaah (SAW) advised people to avoid sitting in direct sunlight because it spoils the clothing, causes a person to smell with perspiration and also causes suppressed illness to surface [Mustadrak 8264, from Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Abbaas (RA)] Hadhrat Umar Ibn Khattaab (Radhiyallahu anhu), wrote a letter to all his governors in distant lands in which he ordered the Muslims with two essential acts: 1. Do not avoid sunshine. Sunshine is our bath. 2. Do not mount your horses like the Ajam (kuffaar). ANSWER The hadith discouraging sunlight applies to excessive exposure. Sitting and sleeping in sunlight for prolonged periods are harmful. Even western experts have warned of the deceases prolonged sun-tanning can cause. The type of exposing the body to sunlight as is the practice of western kuffaar on beaches where they lag in the sun for tanning purposes is harmful. On the other hand, hadhrat Umar Radhiallahu Anhu’s advice relates to everyday work and activity. His advice was for the Sahabah who had settled in fertile lands where the way of life was comfortable, unlike the difficult harsh conditions of Makkah and Madinah. He was cautioning the Sahabah of becoming accustomed to the easy and comfortable way of life of the Ajam. They were primarily on Jihaad campaigns which required a robust lifestyle. Addiction of the comforts of the Ajam lifestyle would impact negatively on their Jihaad campaigns in rough weather conditions. His advice was simply to maintain the rugged lifestyle of the desert which was their home. [Answered by Hazrat Maulana Ahmad Sadeq Desai] Taken from reliablefatwas.com

    Intermingling between genders

    Assalamualaykum readers.In this post I will be continuing with my previous topic regarding the intermingling of non-mehram men and women that takes place in person as well as on the internet.I was specifically targetting the 'chatting' that is taking place in todays age that has become the norm. We no longer consider it to be an evil but instead it seems to be encouraged.However, there is a type of communication in Islam that is permitted. This is the contact between a non-mehram man and woman who communicate for the sake of Islam. But please note only in extreme cases of necessity. Those whose sole purpose is to gain knowledge for the betterment of their own imaan, as well as the entire ummah.Truly, this can be seen taking place at the time of the Prophet (saw) and his blessed companions. The Mother of the Believers hazrat Aishah (ra) has related many hadiths to inform the ummah of the blessed ways of our Prophet(saw) These hadiths were asked by the noble companions of the Prophet (saw) upon which hazrat Aisha use to reply behind a screen in the most modest manner. Yes, indeed this is a perfect example that clearly shows such communication is permitted in Islam.However, I ask you, what has become of us today? We use this very excuse of propagating Islam and instead misuse it to suit our desires. Yes, once in a while an Islamic issue may crop up but other times? Other times, readers we are involved in deep conversations be it MSN or any other way, we are involved in many hours of zina. What is the need in speaking to a non-mehram about personal issues, about petty issues which are simply not necessary.Ofcorse one may say 'my intentions are pure' truly I do not doubt that for one moment. However, all would agree that Shaytan makes it a duty upon himself to convert these intentions to please him. Muslims are urged 'Believing men and women keep your gazes down' This shows that despite having pure intentions one can easily fall into the trap of shaytan, therefore even the slightest bit of temptation is prohibitted from the start. Before any thing even takes place. Id like to apply this same aspect to internet chatting. Readers do not even go near unnecessary chatting between non-mehrams on the internet for this is the path leading to zina. We are mere mortals, we can not always control our desires, it may begin as an 'islamic issue' but result in zina.I would like to conclude by saying that yes you may find the views outlined in my entries very extreme. However as is often said 'the truth is bitter' An ill person has to undergo severe treatment and drink bad tasting medicine as a cure. Similarly this post is being put before you regardless of how bitter it sounds. I apologise for anything said that may have caused offence.Jazakallah for reading
  12. Following is taken from http://www.ummati.blogspot.com/ Intermingling of the sexes I I begin in the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful. The topic in discussion is one that will surely create some controversy amongst the minds of many. Some of you may read the first paragraph and decide you would like to read no further. Others may read the entire post and quietly dismiss what is said. However I place a small request before you: please do ponder upon what is said. Jazakallah. You may all agree that having a physical relationship with a non-mehram is totally forbidden in Islam. And if one was to trangress these boundaries then punishment would be the inevitable consequence. However, if one was to put it simply then we would agree that any form of communication that is likely to lead to ones carnal desires being aroused, is strictly forbidden. One does not know whether one's desires will be aroused or not- though there is always a possibility, hence such communication is forbidden. By communication I mean conversations between a non mehram man and a woman in person, or via the phone, even by a mere look and yes, let me utter the deadly words, the most common form of communication amongst non-mehrams is taking place on the internet. It is the most easiest form and sadly it is succeeding beyond measure in corrupting our minds and leading us astray. (Let me stress, this form of contact I am referring to is one that is keptunnecessarily, there are instances where non-mehrams can communicate, these shall me mentioned later on inshallah) One specific ploy used by people who want to make an excuse to chat to the opposite sex, is to refer to them as their 'brother' and 'sister.' Does this really convince you that what you are doing is islamically acceptable? Yes, every muslim is a brother and sister to one another, but these so called brothers and sisters of ours are people who we can marry, hence the ruling of it being forbidden. Neither does the excuse of being 'friends' work because such a thing as friends between a non-mehram man and a woman exist in Islam. I would like to end by asking, what do we derive from an hours long conversation or even merely keeping in contact with a guy/girl? Yes, it is a form of pass-time, or maybe we think it to be 'fun' and lastly, and most definitely we derive pleasure out of it. I ask you, what is our pleasure in comparison to that of the displeasure of Allah (swt)? What is our comfort in comparison to that of the discomfort and pain of the Blessed Prophet (saw)? Is it fair, that this very Prophet who experienced such hardhship and pain for the sake of his ummah to remain strong on his/her Imaan, so that Allah may grant his ummah salvation from hell, this very Prophet's teachings are being torn to shreads. Do we feel even the slightest bit of remorse? In conclusion I would like to say that this post is not directed at a specific individual, but rather to the entire ummah as a whole. I would like to apologize if I may have said anything that has caused any one of you readers to feel offended. This is not my attempt to be judgemental but rather I am placing a genuine concern before you, I pray that this entry creates an awareness of the evils of men and women chatting online. I pray that Allah gives me and all you readers the hidayah to practice upon what has been said. Jazakallah for reading.

    The Correct Reaction to Knowledge Ayyūb Al-Sakhtiyānī reports that Abū Qilābah – Allāh have mercy on him – said: O Ayyūb, when Allāh brings about knowledge for you, bring about worship of him, and do not let your [sole] concern be to narrate it. Ibn ʿAbd Al-Barr, Jāmiʿ Bayān Al-ʿIlm, article 1279. It is reported that the inscription on the ring of Ḥusayn b. ʿAlī – Allāh be pleased with them – read: You know, so now act (علِمت فاعمل).

    Reminder: Acting on Islamic Posts

    Question Is it right to make heart ( <3 ) (on facebook) under posts like hadees or ayat? Answer In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh. It is permissible to express ones liking to a ayah or Hadith by “liking”, “showing love” or commenting with a heart on social media. However, the “liking” is not to be restricted to social media. One should act upon the ayah or Hadith that they “liked”. It is an unfortunate phenomenon of our time that we are always “liking” Islaamic posts online but we do not heed to the purpose of the post; our lives remain unposted. And Allaah Ta’aala Knows Best.

Therefore, it falls under the category of photography.

At last he came out and found Jibreel Alaihissalam and complained to him of his grief (for his delay). Jibreel Alaihissalam said to him, "We do not enter a place in which there is a picture or a dog." (Bukhari) عَنْ مُسْلِمٍ، قَالَ: كُنَّا مَعَ مَسْرُوقٍ، فِي دَارِ يَسَارِ بْنِ نُمَيْرٍ، فَرَأَى فِي صُفَّتِهِ تَمَاثِيلَ، فَقَالَ: سَمِعْتُ عَبْدَ اللَّهِ، قَالَ: سَمِعْتُ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَقُولُ: إِنَّ أَشَدَّ النَّاسِ عَذَابًا عِنْدَ اللَّهِ يَوْمَ القِيَامَةِ المُصَوِّرُونَ (بخاري) Translation: Narrated by Muslim: We were with Masruq at the house of Yasar bin Numair. Masruq saw pictures on his terrace and said, "I heard `Abdullah saying that he heard the Rasullullah Sallalahu Alaihi Wassalam saying, “The people who will receive the severest punishment from Allah will be the picture makers.” (Bukhari) Accordingly, we advise you to buy non-animated pictured pillows for your kids and adopt taqwaa by avoiding all forms of animated pillows.

An emoji is an image small enough to insert into text that expresses an emotion or idea. Emoji are most often used in emails and text messages, though may be found in any type of electronic communication. The word emoji is a combination of the Japanese word “e” which means picture, and “moji” which means character. Emoticons are punctuation marks, letters, and numbers used to create pictorial icons that generally display an emotion or sentiment. (That’s actually where the portmanteau “emoticon” comes from: emotional icon.) and because of the limits of our keyboard, most emoticons need to be read sideways. Emoji are a slightly more recent invention. Not to be confused with their predecessor, emoji are pictographs of faces, objects, and symbols. So, if you come across a smiley face that contains a character you can find on your computer keyboard, it’s an emoticon. If it’s a little cartoon figure that is free from the binds of punctuation, numbers, and letters, it’s an emoji. https://www.britannica.com/story/whats-the-difference-between-emoji-and-emoticons [ii] Emoji vs emoticon – Grammarist https://grammarist.com/new-words/emoji-vs-emoticon/ [iii] The development of emoji was predated by text-based emoticons, as well as graphical representations, inside and outside of Japan. The first emoji was created in 1999 in Japan by Shigetaka Kurita. He was part of the team working on NTT DoCoMo's i-mode mobile Internet platform Emoji - Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emoji [iv] Originally meaning pictograph, the word emoji comes from Japanese e (絵, "picture") + moji (文字, "character"); the resemblance to the English words emotion and emoticon is purely coincidental. ... In 2015, Oxford Dictionaries named the Face with Tears of Joy emoji the Word of the Year Emoji - Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emoji [v] For more details on emoticons: http://idealwoman.org/2012/is-it-permissible-to-use-emoticons/ [vi] صحيح البخاري (4/ 114) دَّثَنَا يَحْيَى بْنُ سُلَيْمَانَ، قَالَ: حَدَّثَنِي ابْنُ وَهْبٍ، قَالَ: حَدَّثَنِي عُمَرُ، عَنْ سَالِمٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، قَالَ: وَعَدَ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ جِبْرِيلُ فَقَالَ: إِنَّا لاَ نَدْخُلُ بَيْتًا فِيهِ صُورَةٌ وَلاَ كَلْبٌ صحيح البخاري (7/ 167) حَدَّثَنَا الحُمَيْدِيُّ، حَدَّثَنَا سُفْيَانُ، حَدَّثَنَا الأَعْمَشُ، عَنْ مُسْلِمٍ، قَالَ: كُنَّا مَعَ مَسْرُوقٍ، فِي دَارِ يَسَارِ بْنِ نُمَيْرٍ، فَرَأَى فِي صُفَّتِهِ تَمَاثِيلَ، فَقَالَ: سَمِعْتُ عَبْدَ اللَّهِ، قَالَ: سَمِعْتُ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَقُولُ: إِنَّ أَشَدَّ النَّاسِ عَذَابًا عِنْدَ اللَّهِ يَوْمَ القِيَامَةِ المُصَوِّرُونَ مسند أحمد (8/ 51) حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الْعَزِيزِ بْنُ عَبْدِ الصَّمَدِ، حَدَّثَنَا أَيُّوبُ، عَنْ نَافِعٍ، عَنِ ابْنِ عُمَرَ، أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ: " إِنَّ الْمُصَوِّرِينَ يُعَذَّبُونَ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ، وَيُقَالُ: أَحْيُوا مَا خَلَقْتُمْ [vii] امداد الاحکام 4/ 384 فتاوی قاسمیہ: ۲۴/۵۴۷-۵۷۸ باب التصاویر المسائل المہمة فیما ابتلت بہ العامة ۔ اہم مسائل جن میں ابتلائے عام ہے جلد 10، ص۲۶۹ - مؤلف : حضرت مفتی محمد جعفر ملی رحمانی صاحب - ناشر : مکتبہ السلام جامعہ اکل کوا ضلع نندوہار مہاراشٹر انڈیا فیس بُک یا واٹس ایپ وغیرہ پر تصویر اَپ لوڈ کرنا مسئلہ(۱۷۵):آج کل فیس بُک اور واٹس ایپ وغیرہ عام ہے، اور اس میں لوگ اپنی تصاویر چسپاں کرتے ہیں ، پھر ان کے دوست احباب فرینڈ لسٹ والے ’’ماشاء اللہ‘‘ وغیرہ کے الفاظ لکھتے ہیں ، شرعاً یہ دونوں عمل درست نہیں ہیں ، کیوں کہ بغیر سخت ضرورت کے جاندار کی تصاویر بنانا ، اور فیس بُک میں ڈالنے کے لیے اپنی تصاویر بنانا شرعی ضرورت میں سے نہیں ہے، لہٰذا فیس بُک میں اپنی تصاویر چسپاں کرنا ، ناجائز ومنع ہے، اور پھر ان تصاویر پر تبصِرہ کرنا، اور ’’ماشاء اللہ‘‘ وغیرہ کے الفاظ کہنا، یہ بھی ناجائز وگناہ ہے۔(۱) الحجة علی ما قلنا : (۱) ما في ’’ صحیح البخاري ‘‘ : [عن] عبد اللّٰہ قال : سمعت النبي ﷺ یقول : ’’ إن أشد الناس عذاباً عند اللّٰہ المصورون ‘‘ ۔ (۲/۸۸۰ ، کتاب اللباس ، باب عذاب المصورین یوم القیامۃ ، صحیح مسلم : ۲/۲۰۱ ، کتاب اللباس ، باب تحریم صورۃ الحیوان) ما في ’’ شرح النووی علی ہامش مسلم ‘‘ : قال أصحابنا وغیرہم من العلماء : تصویر صورۃ الحیوان حرام شدید وہو من أکبر الکبائر ، لأنہ متوعد علیہ بہذا الوعید الشدید المذکور في الحدیث ، وسواء صنعہ بما یمتہن أو بغیرہ ، فصنعتہ حرام بکل حال ، لأن فیہ مضاہاۃ لخلق اللّٰہ تعالی ، وسواء کان في ثوب أو بساط أو درہم أو دینار أو فلس أو إناء أو حائط أو غیرہا ۔ (۲/۱۹۹، کتاب اللباس ، فتح الباري : ۱۰/۴۷۱ ، باب عذاب المصورین ، مرقاۃ المفاتیح : ۸/۳۲۳ ، کتاب اللباس ، باب التصویر ، الفصل الأول ، رد المحتار :۲/۴۱۶ ، کتاب الصلاۃ ، باب ما یفسد الصلاۃ وما یکرہ فیہا ، مطلب : إذا تردّد الحکم بین سنۃ وبدعۃ کان ترک السنۃ أولی ، البحر الرائق : ۲/۴۸ ، ۴۹) ، باب ما جاء في التماثیل والصور ، رقم :۸۸۹۵) ما في ’’ الجامع لأحکام القرآن للقرطبي ‘‘ : یدل علی المنع من تصویر شيء أي شيء کان۔ (۱۲/۲۷۴) ما في ’’ الدر المختار مع الشامیۃ ‘‘ : لا تمثال إنسان أو طیر ۔ (در مختار) ۔ وفي الشامیۃ: قال الشامي رحمہ اللّٰہ تحت قولہ : (أو طیر) لحرمۃ تصویر ذي الروح ۔ (۹/۵۱۹ ، کتاب الحظر والإباحۃ ، فصل في اللبس) ما في ’’ الموسوعۃ الفقہیۃ ‘‘ : یحرم تصویر ذوات الأرواح مطلقاً ، أي سواء أکان للصورۃ ظلّ أو لم یکن ، وہو مذہب الحنفیۃ والشافعیۃ والحنابلۃ ۔ (۱۲/۱۰۳) (فتاویٰ بنوریہ، رقم الفتویٰ: ۶۰۴۵) امداد الفتاوی جدید ۔ جدید مطول حاشیہ شبیر احمد القاسمی جلد 9، ص۳۸۳ ( مؤلف : حضرت مولانا مفتی شبیر احمد القاسمی صاحب، ناشر : زکریا بک ڈپو دیوبند ، سہارنپور ، یوپی انڈیا) جاندار کی تصویر کشی کے سلسلہ میں تحقیق رسالہۃ _ تصویر کی ممانعت وعیدیں مروجہ شکلیں اور اس سے بچنے کا طریقہ کار - مؤلف : حضرت مولانا مفتی محمد سلمان زاہد صاحب - صفحات کی تعداد : 21 رسالۃ_حرمت تصویر ۔ علمائے عرب و عجم کے فتاوی - مؤلف : حضرت مولانا مفتی محمد شعیب اللہ خان صاحب مفتاحی - ناشر : مکتبہ مسیح الامت دیوبند و بنگلور انڈیا - صفحات کی تعداد : 122 کتاب النوازل جلد 16 - یونیکوڈ - غیر موافق للمطبوع،ص۴۰۴، مؤلف : مولانا مفتی سید محمد سلمان منصور پوری صاحب ٹیلی ویژن اور تصاویر وغیرہ کے بحوث اور اِسلام میں موسیقی اور ناجائز تفریحات کا حکم · نفائس الفقہ جلد چہارم، ص۳۲۶ - مؤلف : حضرت مولانا مفتی محمد شعیب اللہ خان صاحب مفتاحی - ناشر : مکتبہ مسیح الامت دیوبند و بنگلور انڈیا ٹی وی اور ویڈیوکی تصاویر کا حکم Source: Askimam

    Hadith regarding smelling a rose من شم الورد الأحمر، ولم يصل علي، فقد جفاني[1] Translation: “Whoever smells the red rose but does not send salutations upon me, then he has indeed been discourteous to me.” This narration is a fabrication (mawdhoo’)[2].

    Fabricated narrations - Stop quoting them

    بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم السلام علیکم ورحمة الله وبركاته WARNINGS AGAINST QUOTING FABRICATED NARRATIONS There are numerous narrations which prohibit quoting fabricated Hadiths. Among them are the following: 1) Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: ‘Do not tell lies about me, for whoever falsely attributes a statement to me will enter Jahannam ‘ (Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 106, and Foreword of Sahih Muslim) 2) Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn Zubayr (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) said to his father, “I do not hear you relating Hadith from Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) just as I hear so-and-so relating Hadith.” Sayyiduna Zubayr (radiyallahu ‘anhu) replied, “I was always with him, but I heard him say, ‘Whoever falsely attributes a Hadith to me should prepare his abode in Jahannam .’ (Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 107) 3) Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu) says: The thing stops me from relating many Hadiths from Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) is that I heard him say: ‘Whomsoever deliberately falsely attributes a Hadith to me should prepare his abode in Jahannam. (Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 108 and Forward of Sahih Muslim) 4) Sayyiduna Mughirah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Falsely attributing statements to me is unlike falsely attributing statements to anyone else, whoever falsely attributes a Hadith to me should prepare his abode in Jahannam” (Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 1291) The above narrations indicate the caution that Sahabah displayed when it came to reporting Hadith from Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). How much more caution we ought to exercise especially since the Muhaddithun have said there are approximately two hundred Sahabah that have reported the Hadiths warning against fabricating a narration! (Refer: Al Minhaj -Sharhun Nawawi ‘ala Sahih Muslim-, vol. 1 pg. 26 and Fathul Bari, under Hadith: 110) May Allah Protect us. And Allah Knows best Answered by: Moulana Suhail Motala Approved by: Moulana Muhammad Abasoomar, with the following note: It is because of warnings like the above, the Muhaddithun generally prefer the option of caution. We too should follow suite. Checked by: Moulana Haroon Abasoomar

  20. Reading List: Recommended Books on Sirah (Prophetic Biography) By Maulana Bilal Ali Ansari The list of available works on the Sīrah, or prophetic biography, is almost too long to mention. I have, therefore, confined this list to English works and, then, to works that are the most useful for students of my Sirah courses (HST101: Prophetic Biography – The Makkan Era and HST102: Prophetic Biography – The Madinan Era). This list, therefore, is not meant to be exhaustive, nor is a student required to read through all of the works. In fact, I would suggest that a student choose only or two works from each sublist to read along with the in-class lectures. 1. Muhammad: His Life Based on the Earliest Sources by Martin Lings(Inner Traditions International) Probably the most recognized and popular English work on the sīrah, Martin Lings’s narrative of the Prophet’s life (upon him blessings and peace) is now a classic. With the exception of several factual errors and the use of some weak sources, this work remains the most recommended amongst traditional scholars and is unparalleled in its language and narrative description. Because it is a one-volume work and avoids any sort of interruptive academic discussions, it is easy to get through and equally enjoyable. If one does not purchase and study the more detailed sīrah works, this is an absolutely necessary read. 2. Prophet of Mercy by S. Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi (Haji Arfeen Academy) Translated by Mohiuddin Ahmad One of my favorite works because of its emphasis on the aspect of the Prophet’s da’wah and struggles (upon him blessings and peace). The author’s passion for religious revival can be seen throughout the work and highlights the inspirational and transformational leadership style of the Prophet (upon him blessings and peace). The first chapters of the book, which focus on the reigious, social, and political context in which the Messenger of Allah (upon him blessings and peace) was sent, are of particular importance. The printed edition, however, is lacking in many respects. The translation is wanting and the actual binding and paper is of poor quality. A revised translation is available online, but I have yet to find it in published form. Still, it is definitely worth the read. I studied that original Arabic version of the book with my teacher Mawlana Tariq Jameel, who showered it with high praise and considered it a must-read for every Islamic activist. [Update: Turath has recently published a beautiful revised edition that includes maps and fixes the complaints I mentioned above. The recent print, in my humble opinion, makes this work an even more essential read and places it easily at the top of my new list.] 3. The Jurisprudence of the Prophetic Biography by Dr. M Sa‘id Ramadan al-Buti (Dar al-Fikr) Translated by Nancy Roberts Also a one-volume work, this book concentrates on lessons that can be learned from the life of the Messenger of Allah (upon him blessings and peace), especially lessons of a political and legal nature. A unique feature of the work is the author’s rebuttal of Orientalist and modernist objections to the prophetic biography and a clarification of the stance of the Ahl al-Sunnah on those important issues. The work has fewer details than other works because of its emphasis on morals and lessons, which incorporate nearly half of the text. 4. Ar-Raheeq al-Makhtum (The Sealed Nectar) by Safi-ur-Rahman Al-Mubarakpuri One of the more recognized and widely-distributed short works on the sīrah, The Sealed Nectar is a highly accurate and concise narration of the Prophet’s life (upon him blessings and peace). Although a bit drier than Martin Lings’s work, I have found that many students and teachers prefer its clear quotation of primary sources and citation of books. The book has gone through at least a couple reprints and editions. The most recent, I’ve been told, has had significant improvements made to it and should be preferred when purchasing. The author, recently deceased, was a renowned Ahle Hadith scholar of the subcontinent with an eye for accuracy in hadith transmission. This is perhaps the work’s strongest feature. 5. Siratul Mustafa by Maulana Idris Sahib Kandehlawi (Zam Zam Publishers and Madrasah Arabia Islamia) Translated by Mufti Muhammed Kadwa I must thank Mawlana Hussain Kamani for reintroducing me to this book. I had previously only read sections of the second volume of this three-volume masterpiece in the original Urdu while studying hadith in Karachi, Pakistan. At the time, my focus was on the legal nature and details of the Madinan campaigns and I saw the book then as more of a maghāzi-focused work than a complete sīrah. Having revisited the work upon Mawlana Hussain’s suggestion, I’ve quickly fallen in love with it and use it as a primary resource for my teaching. Haven been written by an erudite hadith scholar, the book’s discussions on the hadith are excellent and unique to the work. Although it is a bit technical at times for the novice, scholar and non-scholar alike will benefit highly from the book. Essentially written in response to another popular work on the sīrah, it does go out of its way to clarify important issues and counter recent misconceptions that have arisen around the Prophet’s noble life (upon him blessings and peace). 6. The Noble Life of the Prophet (Peace be upon Him) by Dr. ‘Ali Muhammad As-Sallaabee (Darussalam) Translated by Faisal Shafeeq I must admit that I have yet to thoroughly read the English translation of Sallābī’s recent one-volume Arabic book. The English translation occupies three thick volumes and based on a cursory look, seems up to par in respect to language and overall accuracy. What is unique about this work is its avoidance of weak hadith transmissions and the devotion of a section after each chapter to a discussion of morals and lessons that can be learnt from the Prophet’s life (upon him blessing and peace). Although it is a lengthy work, I have benefited extensively from the book while preparing lessons and have used it in the past for lectures. Again, I can not vouch for the translation as I have only read the Arabic original. 7. Atlas on the Prophet’s Biography: Places, Nations, Landmarks by Dr. Shawqi Abu Khalil (Darussalam) A supplemental work really, this book is essentially a compilation of maps, charts, and pictures that will help any student visualize the places, environment, climate, and geography of the prophetic biography. This book is especially important to those who have not visited the Hijaz and visited the landmarks of the prophetic biography in person. There is a plethora of other works available in English, Arabic, and Urdu that will be helpful to any student of the sīrah. However, in an attempt at keeping this list concise, I have chosen to leave most of them out. In reality, I would be doing the list injustice if I didn’t mention some other books that I benefited from in my study of the sīrah during different stages of my life. In particular, I must mention Manṣūrpūri’s magnificent compilation Rahmatan li ‘l-ʿĀlamīn (a horrific translation exists called Muhammad: Mercy for the Worlds in one volume; I have not read the 3-volume translation that is said to be much better), Ibn Isḥāq’s Sīrah (translated by Guillaume as The Life of Muhammad: Translation of Ibn Ishaq’s Sirat Rasul Allah), Ibn Hishām’s Sīrah, Ibn al-Qayyim’sZād al-Maʿād, and last but not least, Sayyid Sulayman Nadwi’s Muhammad: The Ideal Prophet: A Historical, Practical, Perfect Model for Humanity. My wife, a passionate reader of the sīrah, particularly enjoys Adil Salahi’s Muhammad: Man and Prophet and often first recommends Ar-Raheeq al-Makhtum to her students. Keep in mind that I have not include books of the Shamāʾil in the above list, since I hope to devote a separate detailed article to such books in the future, Allah-willing.

    On Kibr (Pride/Arrogance) & The Cure

    Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned: Jannah is only for the servants who are humble. If a person has an iota of pride in him, he will first be entered into Jahannum where he will have to be cleansed and purified of the pride. Once he is fully cleansed and purified of pride and only humility remains within him, he will be ushered into Jannah. In essence, no person who has pride can enter Jannah. Jannah is the abode of the people of humility. Hence, one should endeavour to rid oneself of pride and inculcate complete humility. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 57)
