  1. حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللهِ بْنُ صَالِحٍ قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنِي اللَّيْثُ قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنِي عَقِيلٌ، عَنِ ابْنِ شِهَابٍ قَالَ‏:‏ أَخْبَرَنِي أَنَسُ بْنُ مَالِكٍ، أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ‏:‏ مَنْ أَحَبَّ أَنْ يُبْسَطَ لَهُ فِي رِزْقِهِ، وَأَنْ يُنْسَأَ لَهُ فِي أَثَرِهِ، فَلْيَصِلْ رَحِمَهُ‏.‏ Grade: Sahih (Al-Albani) Anas ibn Malik reported that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "Anyone who wants to have his provision expanded and his term of life prolonged should maintain ties of kinship." This hadith reveals that if anyone wants to have his provision expanded, it means his provision may be open up, unfold and increased, and he may be a rich one and along with it, his peered of life may be prolonged, and he may be an Elderly man with safe and sound, then he should maintain ties to his relatives. Maintaining the ties to any on’s relatives is very important issue, but most people neglect it and do not care for it, while Islam Emphasis on this on it. So the wholly Quran reveals” …and fear Allah through Whom you demand your mutual (rights), and (do not cut the relations of) the wombs (kinship)…” [al-Nisa’ 4:1] Allah has warned us against cutting the ties of kinship (interpretation of the meaning): “Any one who wants that his (provision) to be increased and his life to be extended, should uphold the ties of kinship.” Also,” And those who break the Covenant of Allah, after its ratification, and sever that which Allah has commanded to be joined (i.e., they sever the bond of kinship and are not good to their relatives), and work mischief in the land, on them is the curse (i.e., they will be far away from Allah’s mercy and for them is the unhappy (evil) home (i.e., Hell).” [al-Ra’d 13:25] Also,” And give to the kindred his due and to the miskeen (poor)… “And give to the kindred his due and to the miskeen (poor)…” [al-Isra’ 17:26] According to the hadth, “Whoever would like his rizq (provision) to be increased and his life to be extended, should uphold the ties of kinship.” (Reported by al-Bukhaari, may Allah give us taufeek to act upon this hadith , Amin.

  2. حَدَّثَنَا مُسَدَّدٌ، قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنَا يَحْيَى، عَنِ ابْنِ عَجْلاَنَ، عَنْ سَعِيدِ بْنِ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ الْمَقْبُرِيِّ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ‏:‏ إِيَّاكُمْ وَالظُّلْمَ، فَإِنَّ الظُّلْمَ ظُلُمَاتٌ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ، وَإِيَّاكُمْ وَالْفُحْشَ، فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لاَ يُحِبُّ الْفَاحِشَ الْمُتَفَحِّشَ، وَإِيَّاكُمْ وَالشُّحَّ، فَإِنَّهُ دَعَا مَنْ كَانَ قَبْلَكُمْ فَقَطَعُوا أَرْحَامَهُمْ، وَدَعَاهُمْ فَاسْتَحَلُّوا مَحَارِمَهُمْ‏.‏ Grade: Sahih (Al-Albani) صـحـيـح (الألباني) Abu Hurayra reported that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "Beware of injustice. Injustice will appear as darkness on the Day of Rising. Beware of coarseness. Allah does not love those who are coarse and foul mouthed. And Beware of avarice for it destroyed those before you. They cut off their relatives. Allah summoned them and they made lawful what was unlawful." This hadith reveals that a Muslim should not be an injustice because it appears at the Day of Judgement a darkness, and that darkness will be from the torment, anger, and dis placement of Allah Almighty and he will not find the light of the mercy and forgiveness of Allah Almighty, and he should not be a foul- mouthed, because people do not like such a bad attitude. The question is: Who are the foul-mouthed people If you describe someone as foul-mouthed, you disapprove of them because they use offensive words. and he should not be a Grady one, because when a man becomes a rich man, he does not pay the rights of his poor relatives and does not helps them and contempt the m and often breaks the Relationships with them. May Allah Almighty give us yaufeeq to act upon this hadith Amin
  3. حَدَّثَنَا إِسْمَاعِيلُ بْنُ أَبِي أُوَيْسٍ قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنِي أَخِي، عَنْ سُلَيْمَانَ بْنِ بِلاَلٍ، عَنْ إِبْرَاهِيمَ بْنِ أَبِي أُسَيْدٍ، عَنْ جَدِّهِ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ‏:‏ وَالَّذِي نَفْسِي بِيَدِهِ، لاَ تَدْخُلُوا الْجَنَّةَ حَتَّى تُسْلِمُوا، وَلاَ تُسْلِمُوا حَتَّى تَحَابُّوا، وَأَفْشُوا السَّلاَمَ تَحَابُّوا، وَإِيَّاكُمْ وَالْبُغْضَةَ، فَإِنَّهَا هِيَ الْحَالِقَةُ، لاَ أَقُولُ لَكُمْ‏:‏ تَحْلِقُ الشَّعْرَ، وَلَكِنْ تَحْلِقُ الدِّينَ‏.‏ Abu Hurayra reported that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "By the One in Whose Hand my soul is, you will not enter Paradise until you submit to Islam. And, you will not submit to Islam until you love one another. Extend the greeting to one another and you will love one another. Beware of hatred, for it is the razor. I do not tell you that it shaves the hair, but it shaves away the deen." Grade: Hasan (li ghairih) (Al-Albani) This hadith reveals that those Muslims will enter Paradise who are excellence in character. because The Holy Prophet PBUH said this after saying “ “By the One in Whose Hand my soul is” It means they have the same characteristics as”- (1) good morality, good behavior and excellence in service etc. (2) They extend greetings to everyone whether they know them or not (3) They love to every Muslim (4) Their hearts are clean from hatred, grudge, enmity, malice etc. Because these qualities remove up all the good actions of the Muslim and he does not feel it. May Allah Almighty give us ‘ taufiq, to act upon this hadith, Amin.
  4. By Mohammad Rafique Etesame Ramazan-ul-Mubarak is a most sacred and holy month of the Muslim calendar. It brings good fortune and endless blessings of Allah Almighty. It is a month of forbearance that’s rewards is only Heaven. (Bokhari) Act of fasting was prescribed in all the Shriah of the Holy Prophets (May peace and Mercy of Allah be upon them) and its main purpose is to make Muslims pious and God-fearing as mentioned in the Holy Qura,n “O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you, even as it was prescribed for those before you, that ye may ward off (evil),(The Cow: 183). The Holy Prophet (PBUH) said that the first ten days of Ramazan-nul-Mubarak are for the bounty of Allah , second ten days are for the forgiveness, and the last ten days declare the salvation from Hell to those who keep fasting. (Bokhari, Mishkat-ul-Masabeeh ) He (PBUH) said the former sins of the believers are forgiven who keeps fasting with faith and a sense of accountability. And when the first night of Ramazan falls, an announcement made on behalf of Allah that He Loves him who loves He and He meets him who try to meet He, and Allah will forgive him who seeks forgiveness. Then Allah Orders the twin recording angels to write only virtues and not to write evils and to rub off their former sins .(Zubda-tul-Waizeen) A distinctive feature of Ramazan is that the Holy Quran was revealed in this month from the “Lauh-e-Mahfooz” to the first sky. Whence, it was revealed on the Holy Prophet (PBUH) in the period of 23 years according to the need of the time. Allah Almighty Orddains,” The month of Ramazan in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for mankind, and clear proofs of the guidance and the criterion (of right and wrong). And whosoever of you is present, let him fast the month, and whosoever of you is sick or on a journey, (let him fast the same) number of other days. (The Cow:185) Qur’an is an authentic source of Islamic dogmas, worships, affairs and lays the foundation stone of Islamic legislation. It reveals an abridged outline for individual and social life and guides to all aspects of life in principle. Recitation of the Holy Qur’an gives the mental and spiritual peace and tranquility. The Holy Prophet (PBUH) said that when the month of Ramazan falls all of the evil design, Satans and Jinns tightened in the chains and doors of Hell closed, and a voice from the Heaven calls “O ye who committing evils stop yourself !and O the well wisher! Increase yourself in virtues. And a large number of the people deserving for Hell, are Freed every night. (Tirmadhi, Nasai, Ibn-e-Maja) Ramzan-ul-Mubark is going on. So We should count for such a blessed month and keep fasting
  5. By Mohammad Rafique Etesame Month of Ramadan is a very blessed and great month, Allah Almighty Grants His unlimited mercy to the faithful believers. There are many joys for the believers but two are very noteworthy. Abu Hurairah (R.A.) narrated from the messenger of Allah he said: "There are two joys for the fasting person: the joy when he breaks his fast, and the joy when he will meet his Lord" (Jami` at-Tirmidhi 766). As detail firs is that, when the believer has observed fast and now it is evening and various types of food and drinking are placed before him. And when time is over then the believer breaks his fast, and he feels a great pleasure when he eats and drinks. And second is that when he will meet to Allah Almighty at the day of Resurrection and will see to Him as he sees to a full moon, and then he will become a great lighthearted and happy and these are proved by the holy Qur’an and sayings of the holy Prophet PBUH. As regard the holy Qur’an, so it makes mention,” On the day when it befalls in earnest, and they are ordered to prostrate themselves but are not able”, (Surah al-Qalam: 42). It means that Allah Almighty will show off His special manifestation at the Day of Resurrection and the people will be called to fall prostrate before Him, but the infidels, polytheists and the hypocrites will not be able to prostrate and their backs will become hard like iron. And according to the hadith, the holy Prophet PBUH said,” Do you crowd one another in order to see the moon on the night of a full moon? Do you crowd one another in order to see the sun?" They said: "No." He said: "So verily, you shall see your Lord as you see the moon on the night of a full moon, you shall not crowd one another to see Him."(Al-Mishkat) So, due to His unlimited mercy the faithful believers will see to their Lord at the Day of Resurrection and feel great pleasure.
  6. Reward of the removing a worldly grief from a believer? On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: Whoever removes a worldly grief from a believer, Allah will remove from him one of the griefs of the Day of Resurrection. And whoever alleviates the need of a needy person, Allah will alleviate his needs in this world and the Hereafter. Whoever shields [or hides the misdeeds of] a Muslim, Allah will shield him in this world and the Hereafter. And Allah will aid His slave so long as he aids his brother. And whoever follows a path to seek knowledge therein, Allah will make easy for him a path to Paradise. No people gather together in one of the Houses of Allah, reciting the Book of Allah and studying it among themselves, except that sakeenah (tranquility) descends upon them, and mercy envelops them, and the angels surround them, and Allah mentions them amongst those who are with Him. And whoever is slowed down by his actions, will not be hastened forward by his lineage. Related by [Muslim] in these words. May Allah Almighty give us ,taufiq, to act upon this hagith , Amin. Reference : Hadith 36, 40 Hadith an-Nawawi
  7. Mohammad Rafique Etesame Abu Hurayra reported that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "By the One in Whose Hand my soul is, you will not enter Paradise until you submit to Islam. And, you will not submit to Islam until you love one another. Extend the greeting to one another and you will love one another. Beware of hatred, for it is the razor. I do not tell you that it shaves the hair, but it shaves away the deen." حَدَّثَنَا إِسْمَاعِيلُ بْنُ أَبِي أُوَيْسٍ قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنِي أَخِي، عَنْ سُلَيْمَانَ بْنِ بِلاَلٍ، عَنْ إِبْرَاهِيمَ بْنِ أَبِي أُسَيْدٍ، عَنْ جَدِّهِ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ‏:‏ وَالَّذِي نَفْسِي بِيَدِهِ، لاَ تَدْخُلُوا الْجَنَّةَ حَتَّى تُسْلِمُوا، وَلاَ تُسْلِمُوا حَتَّى تَحَابُّوا، وَأَفْشُوا السَّلاَمَ تَحَابُّوا، وَإِيَّاكُمْ وَالْبُغْضَةَ، فَإِنَّهَا هِيَ الْحَالِقَةُ، لاَ أَقُولُ لَكُمْ‏:‏ تَحْلِقُ الشَّعْرَ، وَلَكِنْ تَحْلِقُ الدِّينَ‏.‏ (الألباني حسن لغيره) Abu Hurayra reported that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "By the One in Whose Hand my soul is, you will not enter Paradise until you submit to Islam. And, you will not submit to Islam until you love one another. Extend the greeting to one another and you will love one another. Beware of hatred, for it is the razor. I do not tell you that it shaves the hair, but it shaves away the deen." This hadith reveals three things, first is that nobody can enter Paradise until he/she accepts Islam, because no other religion except Islam will be accepted in the Day of Resurrection. Second is that, despite acceptance Islam, it is necessary that there should be love, affection and sympathy among the Muslims also. And, to achieve this purpose, greeting should be extended among themselves. And the third is most important, it means that abhorrence, loathing, or abomination etc. should not be among the faithful believer and heart should be clean from malice, ill feeling bitterness and arrogance from others. The holy Prophet PBUH said,” Anyone has an atom's weight of arrogance in his heart will not enter Paradise." A man said:" What if one likes his clothes and shoes to look good?" He said: "Verily, Allah is beautiful and He loves beauty. Arrogance is to reject the truth and look down on people." Sahih/Authentic. - [Muslim] So, in order to entering Paradise, every faithful believer should arrange to act upon this hadith, amin.
  8. By Mohammad rafique Etesame The holy Quran reveals, “God is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The parable of His light is, as it were, that of a niche containing a lamp; the lamp is [enclosed] in glass, the glass [shining] like a radiant star: [a lamp] lit from a blessed tree - an olive-tree that is neither of the east nor of the west the oil whereof [is so bright that it] would well-nigh give light [of itself] even though fire had not touched it: light upon light! God guides unto His light him that wills [to be guided]; and [to this end] God propounds parables unto men, since God [alone] has full knowledge of all things”. ( Al-Nour (The Light) 24:35) These verses reveal that Allah is the light of the heavens and the earth and then its quality has been Mentioned. According to the tafseer… Allah is the real source of all creatures lives whether they are human beings, jinns, animals and plants etc. And the flash of light in the Sun, Moon, Stars, galaxies and in all the Planets, it comes from the light His of Highness’s existence, and If it is not so, then all will be deserted Also, the whole lights of guidance found in all the Holy Prophets, good human beings, pious and piety men, is borrowed from the light of guidance of Allah-Almighty. And all the movements in all the creatures particularly the human beings, regarding profits and losses etc., are only by the will and commands of Allah-Almighty because nothing can move without it as the holy Quran reveals, God rests all power of decision, first and last. And on that day will the believers [too, have cause to] rejoice. Ar-Rum (The Romans) 30:4 If it is not so, then all will be deserted Everything is done only by Allah’s will and not by man’s will as he holy Quran reveals,”AND NEVER say about anything, 'Behold, I shall do this tomorrow unless God so willed Al-Kahf (The Cave) 18:23 All the plans and programs made by man, cannot be fulfilled and failed unless Allah so willed. If anyone wants to check this reality, then he should check it up by high quality whether anything or any of his plans or programs successfully meet to their ends? Because many obstacles will stop its way. And he will find that nothing can be done by his own authority and will but only by Allah’s will, the holy Quran clearly mentions that,” But you cannot will it unless God wills [to show you that way]: for, behold, God is indeed all-seeing, wise” (At-Takwir (The Folding Up) 81:29 ). Main idea of this article is that, when Allah is the light of the universe, and in whose hand is the authority and power to run everything and man is totally helpless, then man should flee to God in order to be ever-living and ever- successful one, because according to the holy Quran,” He is the First and the Last, and the Outward as well as the Inward: and He has full knowledge of everything. .( Al-Hadid (Iron) 57:3).
  9. By Mohammad Rafique Etesame Off course, every Muslim’s deadly wish is same that, he should again meet his lovely ones i.e. a lovely father, mother, his lovely children etc. And this is not mere an imagine, but its authenticity is proved by the holy Quran as”: - And as for those who have attained to faith and whose offspring will have followed them in faith, We shall unite them with their offspring; and We shall not let aught of their deeds go to waste: [but] every human being will be held in pledge for whatever he has earned. (asad) ⟶ At-Tur (The Mount) 52:21 These verses reveal that if some people’s parents are true Muslims i.e. they believe in the oneness of God and do not ascribe partners to Him and love the holy Prophet PBUH, and follow his good example in their whole lives, and similarly their children’s obey their parents. Then Allah Almighty ordains that “We shall join their seeds to their parents” (they will again be a joint family). But there may some obstacles to do so as: - If the children are infidels or mushriks (i.e. ascribing partners to Allah Al mighty), or their beliefs are mixed with the shirk or innovation, then they will not be joined to their parent at all because Allah will not forgive to them as the holy Quran reveals” Allah forgives not (The sin of) joining other gods with Him; but He forgiveth whom He pleaseth other sins than this: one who joins other gods with Allah, Hath strayed far, far away (from the right). (An-Nisaa | 176) If the children disobey to their parent’s ant and make Rude attitude to them, (3) If the children, for example, stand any dispute regarding property, or give and take etc., or personal differences etc. And if their parents divided the property among them with justice and same did in other matters, then usually, the children cut-off the relations with them. And if it will be so, then it is quite impossible to be joined the children to their parents until they apologize to them. Because the holy Quran reveals, “for thy Sustainer has ordained that you shall worship none but Him. And do good unto [thy] parents. Should one of them, or both, attain to old age in thy care, never say 'Ugh' to them or scold them, but [always] speak unto them with reverent speech, (The Journey by Night) 17:23). Also,” My Lord, have mercy upon them as they brought me up [when I was] small." . (Surah Al-Isra 17-24). May Allah make us look after our parents and treat them with kindness! So, if the children are sincere to meet to them in Paradise, then they should deal with them politely and do not cut-off to them. May Allah Al-Mighty five us ,taufeeq, to do so, Amin.
  10. By Mohammad Rafique Etesame The entire universe has been created by the truth and not by playing as the holy Qur’an reveals,” For [thus it is:] We have not created the heavens and the earth and all that is between them in mere idle play.” (Ad-Dukhan (The Smoke) 44:38) And in comparison to the Truth, there is falsehood consists of Devil Iblis and his disciples. The question i: what does it mean that there is the Truth in the entire universe as a whole, but falsehood exists in the heart of man? It means that falsehood do not make mischief in the universe or to fight the angels or to the good Muslims, or they mess up to the universe or cause harm to the mountains or jungles etc. It means it misleads man form inner self i.e. from his heart or conscience. Because heart has great importance in the teachings of Islam as the holy Qur’an reveals,” Already have We urged unto hell many of the jinn and humankind, having hearts wherewith they understand not, and having eyes wherewith they see not, and having ears wherewith they hear not. These are as the cattle - nay, but they are worse! These are the neglectful”. (Al-A'raf (The Heights) 7:179) And according to the hadith the holy Prophet PBUH said,” In the body there is a piece of flesh, and the whole body is sound if it is sound, but the whole body is corrupt if it is corrupt. It is the heart.” (Bukhari and Muslim) Devil is not an external creature of the universe; but Allah has created him to test human being. And Allah gave him power to mislead mankind, in order to see that what kind of way good or bad he chooses, whether to obey Allah’s command or to follow whispering of Satan? Another internal power that misleads man is ‘nafse ammarah’ (inordinate soul) that exists in the human body and a powerful element of falsehood as the holy Qur’an reveals, “I do not exculpate myself. Lo! the (human) soul enjoins unto evil, save that whereon my Lord hath mercy. Lo! my Lord is Forgiving, Merciful” (12:53). Now, Satan is the plain enemy of mankind; these two powers of falsehood mislead man form his heart, until they make him like ‘cattle’ but worse than it. Because he does not understand anything from Divine inspiration and deny the teachings of Islam. So they go astray by the falsehood as the None-Muslims and Atheists etc.
  11. If we look at the living creatures, we find the same thing. And Prophet Adam (peace be upon him), when he was only a statue made by clay, then there was no movement in it and when the soul was breathed into it by Allah Almighty, and then the statue became a living man and became to move as the holy Qur’an reveals,” and when I have formed him fully and breathed into him of My spirit, fall down before him in prostration” (Al-Hijr The Rocky Tract 15:29), In these verses it is stated that human soul is infect by the command of Allah and people have been given very little knowledge about its reality. By Mohammad Rafique Etesame This is a burning question that what is the reality of human soul and people have great interest about it? There are many societies in Europe that research on the soul that, when it enters the body, the body moves and when it goes out of it, the body dies? So, this article states the Islamic point of view about it. Almighty Allah says in the holy Qur’an, “people ask thee (O Mohammad PBUH) about the soul. Tell them that the soul is by the command of Allah, and you have been given very little knowledge of it” (Al-Isra '17:85). A common thing is that when it enters a body, the body begins to move, and all of its movements can be divided into two categories i.e. to gain profit and to avoid loss. The reality of the soul is mentioned in the Holy Qur'an as, "For Allah is the creation and the command” (Surah Ya-seen). So, there are two separate things i.e. the command and the creation, and command is called by word "kun" (Be) as the holy Qur’an reveals, “Whenever We will anything to be, We but say unto it Our word 'Be' -and it is” (An-Nahl (The Bee) 16:40). In the other words the reality of the command is in fact to order to that particular thing that, "Go to the work you have been created for!" The word ‘kun’ is used for the entire living creation as they are planned and arranged in such a way that the purpose of invention and creation is established. Therefore, it has been proved that the reality of soul is the command of Allah Almighty word “kun”. Another question is that where go the souls after death of man? So, according to Islamic teachings, after death, there are only two places for the souls, First is: Elli-yeen (the mode most lofty) and the second is: Sajjin (the mode inescapable). Notable that, this is Islamic belief that souls cannot return to this world after death, because the souls of the righteous men go on to visit to heaven in the shape of green birds, so they do not need to come back to this world, and the souls of infidels and polytheists, they are imprisoned under a bad-smelled black stone whence they can never return to the world, the holy Qur’an reveals, "Behind them (the souls) is a barzakh (barrier), until the Day of Resurrection, when they will be resurrected." (Al-Qur'an). So, it is the baseless belief of Hinduism about the dead bodies when they are burnt, that they back again in this world by taking a new-birth and also the Reincarnation. So, if a man wants to gain the real profit and to avoid from the real loss, then he/she should accept the religion of Islam and worship of Allah Almighty. So that he might be among those who will be given the great favors at the Day of Resurrection as it has been mentioned “But ah! Thou soul at peace! Return unto thy Lord, content in His good pleasure! Enter thou among My bondmen! Enter thou My Garden”! (Al-Fajr: 30)
  12. On the authority of Inas bin Mailk R.A. he said, the holy messenger of Allah, may peace and mercy of Allah be upon him he said to Anas bin Malik R.A., “O my son if you are capable of waking up in morning and ending of evening and you have not in your heart of deception to any other then do this”. He also said “my son and this is my Sunnah and who loves my Sunnah then he loves me and who loves me will be with me at the Day of Resurrection”. Inas bin Malik R.A. is a famous companion of the holy Prophet PBUH and lived in his service for ten years, one day the holy Prophet PBUH said to him, O my son if you are capable of waking up in morning and ending of evening and you have nothing in your heart of deception, it means the hatred, grudge and ill thinking and displeasure etc. So, this is the sunnah of the holy Prophet PBUH and whoever loves the sunnah of him, he loves him and will be with him in Paradise at the Day of Resurrection. Please look what a great reward is it for the faithful believers who loves the Sunnah of the holy Prophet PBUH and have the clean hearts. Because if the mirror of heart is clean from deception grudge, ill thinking, hatred or any other spiritual disease, then this heart reflects the inspiration of Divine. And on the other hand if the mirror of heart is dirty by committing sins hatred etc. Then it reflects the whispering of Satan that will lead him astray. So, it is necessary that a faithful believer should has love and affection to other faithful believers and should has no spiritual diseases in his heart. So that he may get the company of the holy Prophet PBUH in Paradise at the Day of Resurrection. These are the teachings of Islam. And if there a dispute stands between two faithful believers, then first should say to other,” brother I have noticed such and such in you, please clear it and if I am at fault then pardon me.” He should not have anything in his heart. This is the Sunnah of holy Prophet PBUH. May Allah Almighty give us taufeeq to do so Amin.
  13. BY Mohammad Rafiq Etesame The holy Quran reveals,” Say, [O Muhammad], “Shall we [believers] inform you of the greatest losers as to [their] They are] those whose effort is lost in worldly life, while they think that they are doing well Those are the ones who disbelieve in the verses of their Lord and in [their] meeting Him, so their deeds have become worthless; and We will not assign to them on the Day of Resurrection any importance. That is their recompense – Hell – for what they denied and [because] they took My signs and My messengers in ridicule. Indeed, those who have believed and done righteous deeds – they will have the Gardens of Paradise as a lodging, wherein they abide eternally. They will not desire from it any transfer. Say, “If the sea were ink for [writing] the words of my Lord, the sea would be exhausted before the words of my Lord were exhausted, even if We brought the like of it as a supplement. “AL- kahf 103]. Also” surely humanity is in ˹grave˺ loss, except those who have faith, do good, and urge each other to the truth, and urge each other to perseverance” (Al- Asr). These verses reveal that who are the greatest losers of the world? They are those whose effort is lost in worldly life, while they think that they are doing well…. As we see in the routine life that when the child is young, their parent start thinking that how will become our child a successful in his future? Whether he should be a doctor, an engineer, or a successful business man? Usually people have a standard for their successful ness as… if a film maker makes a film and if it hits to the box office and becomes a block buster, then he is very happy and sees himself a super successful one, and if an industrialist makes the products bestselling in the market, then he is a success one, and if a singer’s sings go viral, then he is also a success one and so and so… While according to the Islamic point of view the really a successful one is that who should be a Muslim at first and follow the good example (uswae hasana) of the holy Prophet PBUH, then whatever he will make any, plan for his good future, he will be a successful Because the holy Prophet PBUH, guided his ummah in every walk of life. For example, he was an imam of the masjid,and the commander of the army, a successful business man and a lovey husband and father and so forth… The holy Quran reveals,” verily, in the Apostle of God you have a good example for everyone who looks forward [with hope and awe] to God and the Last Day, and remembers God. unseeingly. Al-Ahzab (The Confederates) 33:21) After then whatever he will make any plan by the righteous way, Allah will help him as the holy Quran reveals ,” And so, when they are about to reach the end of their waiting-term, either retain them in a fair manner or part with them in a fair manner. And let two persons of [known] probity from among your own community witness [what you have decided]; and do yourselves bear true witness before God: thus are admonished all who believe in God and the Last Day . And unto everyone who is conscious of God, He [always] grants a way out [of unhappiness], and provides for him in a manner beyond all expectation; and for everyone who places his trust in God He [alone] is enough. Verily, God always attains to His purpose: [and] indeed, unto everything has God appointed its [term and] measure” At-Talaq (The Divorce) 65:2) These verses reveal that Allah provides the faithful belvier in a manner beyond all expectation, and provision does not mean only the daily bread, but it means all his fundamental needs and whatever he requires necessary things as per permissible in Shariah. So, the really successful are those Muslims who follow the commands of Allah and His messenger in all the way of life, may Allah give us taufeeq to do so, Ami
  14. By Mohammad Rafique etesame Now a days’ average human life’s yea according to this, sixty-five days are counted in a year. While the life in the hereafter after, there is another scale of counting is running as the holy Quran reveals” O Muhammad,] they challenge thee to hasten the coming upon them of [God’s] chastisement: but God never fails to fulfill His promise - and, behold, in thy Sustainer’s sight, a day is like a thousand years of your reckoning” Al-Hajj (The Pilgrimage) 22:47 So, according to this counting, one year of that l life is equal to three lakhs and fifty-five thousands days in a year. Therefore, the life of ‘Ahrat’ and ( ,aalime barzakh’ (a period or state between death and resurrection) is very long and endless. Now the question is: what are the benefits and losses of the long life for a Muslim or the infidels? So, for the faithful believers the holy Quran reveals, ” for, [if they did, they would know that] the life of this world is nothing but a passing delight and a play - whereas, behold, the life in the hereafter is indeed the only [true] life: if they but knew this! Al-'Ankabut (The Spider) 29:64 “Also,: Yet those who attain to faith and do righteous deeds We shall bring into gardens through which running waters flow, therein to abide beyond the count of time: this is, in truth, God's promise - and whose word could be truer than God's? An-Nisa (The Women) 4:57 Also, the Muslims have been given glad tiddling’s by saying.” [AND on Judgment Day] God will say: 'Today, their truthfulness shall benefit all who have been true to their word: theirs shall be gardens through which running waters flow, therein to abide beyond the count of time; well-pleased is God with them, and well-pleased are they with Him: this is the triumph supreme.' Al- Ma'idah (The Table Spread) 5:119 And those who are the sinful Muslims i.e. they commit sins major or miners, and they fear Allah Almighty and hope for His endless mercy, and they want to offer tauba (repentance), then Allah will forgive their ins, as the holy Quran reveals ,” SAY: “[Thus speaks God:] ‘O you servants of Mine who have transgressed against your own selves! Despair not of God’s mercy: behold, God forgives all sins - for, verily, He alone is much-forgiving, a dis-penser of grace!’ ” Az-Zumar (The Groups) 39:53 And about the disbeliever the holy Quran says, “ those who disbelieve and wrong themselves—surely Allah will neither forgive them nor guide them to any path Those who disbelieve and hinder ˹others˺ from the Way of Allah have certainly strayed far away. ([al-Nisa’ 4:168-169). And in Soorat al-Ahzaab, where He says (interpretation of the meaning): “Verily, Allaah has cursed the disbelievers, and has prepared for them a flaming Fire (Hell). So, this is necessary for the disbelievers that they should think about their destination and abode in the hereafter? Therefore, according to the holy Quran there are only two abode in the Hereafter for human being, the Paradise and the Hellfire. So, the real successful one is he whom Allah Almighty saves from the fire and enters the paradise as the holy Quran reveals,” Every human being is bound to taste death: but only on the Day of Resurrection will you be requited in full [for whatever you have done] - whereupon he that shall be drawn away from the fire and brought into paradise will indeed have gained a triumph: for the life of this world is nothing but an enjoyment of self-delusion Al-Imran (The Family of Imran) 3:185 And for the faithful beliers, It is reality that the journey of the hereafter is long and everlasting so, it is necessary for the faithful believers that they should get the good provision for this journey, and according to the holy Quran, the best provision is for it is only, taqwa, the holy Quran reveals,” The pilgrimage shall take place in the months appointed for it. And whoever undertakes the pilgrimage in those [months] shall, while on pilgrimage, abstain from lewd speech, from all wicked conduct, and from quarrelling; and whatever good you may do, God is aware of it. And make provision for yourselves - but, verily, the best of all provisions is God-consciousness: remain, then, conscious of Me, O you who are endowed with insight! ( Al-Baqara (The Cow) 2:197). Amy Allah Almighty give us power to do so,amin.
  15. Muhammad Rafiq Etesami Almighty Allah says in the holy Qur’an, “And when your Lord said to the angels: Surely I am going to create a successor in the earth, they said: Will you make a successor who will make mischief in the earth and shed blood? We, who are sufficient for your glorification and sanctification, Allah said: You do not know what I know” (Qur'an). And the Substance from which man was created is mentioned in the Qur'an: "And We created man from sounding clay, and We created the jinn from a flame of fire before him" (Al-Mu'minun (The Believers) ). The idea is that first the statue of a man was made from the clay and then when it dried and began to grind, then it became the human body and its characteristics were the hardness and weight. And then it was cooked somewhat in fire. That is why it caused to mix a gradient of the evil nature in man. Then this statue was passed through the various stages and then it was able to breath the soul into it. First man was made of by clay that has burden and falls down as usual. And notable is that as mankind falls down physically, also falls down spiritually and morally. Because there are two enemies of man one is inordinate soul (Nafs Ammara) that is the part of his body and the other is Satan Iblis, which according to the hadith circulates like blood inside man. As the history shows the bad tricks of Nafs Ammara and Satan to mislead the people, whether these people are the Muslims or belong to any other religion, race or caste. One thing is common in every human being is that he makes mischiefs, deceives and even kills others for his profitable things. The first man was killed, the son of Adam namely Habeel by his brother Qbeel due to a woman. According to the history, how many human lives have been lost due to get the power, money, women and land, all these things can be seen in the context of the nature of man and from what substance he has been created as mentioned above? But the fact is, all human beings are not equal in nature and morality and character. Because among the human beings, the holy Prophets (peace and mercy of Allah be upon them), good people and saints were born. And it is impossible to Satan and ‘nafs’ to mislead the holy Prophets (PBUH. As regards the saints and good people so Allah also protects them from the tricks of Satan as Says in the holy Qur’an to Satan," verily, thou shalt have no power over My creatures- unless it be such as are [already] lost in grievous error and follow thee [of their own will]” ( Al-Hijr (The Rocky Tract) 15:42). So, in this article, human nature is examined in general, that man often misleads by Satan and inordinate soul. But according to the Qur'an, if someone wants to purify himself, it is quite possible as the holy Qur’an reveal, “Indeed, he is successful who purifies himself, and remembers and prays (to Allah), but you prefer the worldly life, while the Hereafter is better and more lasting” (Al-A'la (The Most High) 87:15 )۔ Therefore, the best way for a faithful believer is that he should make himself purify and should protects from the tricks of Nafs Amara and Satan Iblis.
