  1. As-Salaam alaikum, Sayyadi Hassan al-Basri, may Allah be Merciful to him, relates that a group of individuals claimed to love Allah and so Allah tested their love by revealing the Ayat: "Say, If you love Allah, then follow me and Allah will love you and forgive you your sins." (3:31) Al-Junaid Baghdadi, may Allah be Merciful to him, said: "No one has reached Allah except through Allah. And the path to reaching Allah is following the Chosen One, al-Mustafa, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam." Reaching Allah means attaining a state in which Allah is pleased with one. It is based on this perspective that the Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:- "All of my community will enter paradise except those who refuse." It was asked, "O Messenger of Allah, who refuses?" He said:- "Whoever obeys me will enter Heaven. Whoever disobeys me has refused." [Bukhari, Vol. 6].
  2. "The one who tries to reach Me, knows Me The one who knows Me, wants Me The one who wants Me, seeks Me The one who seeks Me, finds Me The one who finds Me, serves Me The one who serves Me, remembers Me The one who remembers Me, I remember him with My Mercy". (Hadith Qudsi)
  3. As-Salaam alaikum, In a Hadith Qudsi, Allahu Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala said:-- "For Me, the most blessed of My Friends is the person of faith who is unburdened (by possessions), who takes pleasure in prayer, who carries out well his devotion to his Lord and eagerly serves Him in secret. He is concealed among the people; no one points him out. His sustenance is barely sufficient, and he is content with that. His death comes quickly, there are few mourners, and his estate is small." This Noble Hadith is included, with minor variations, in the canonical collections of Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah and Ibn Hanbal.
  4. As-Salaam alaikum, It is my pleasure to invite your attention to the attached booklet compiled by Sheikh Ali Qari, titled: 'MUKHTASAR HIZBUL A'AZAM'. It is a collection of various kinds of Du'as and/or Supplications covering almost every area of life in this world and the Hereafter. You are aware that through Du'a, we fulfill the Order of Allah that we should request, ask/appeal to Him, Jallah-Jalalahu, for all we need... all we want. Also, Du'a ia an expression of our servitude to Allah Tabaraka Wa Ta'ala.... as it indicates our utter poverty and absolute dependence on Him. It helps us recognize Him as Rabb (Lord) and Malik (Owner of Everything). Find time to peruse this booklet and use it in everyday life, and you will see/appreciate what we are saying above.. Best Wishes.. MUKHTASASR-Hizbul-Azam.pdf
  5. As-Salaam alaykum, Abu Hurairah, may Allah be pleased with him, reported that the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:-- "THERE ARE 2 PHRASES THE ARE LIGHT ON THE TONGUE BUT HEAVY ON THE SCALE OF REWARDS AND ARE DEAR TO (ALLAH) THE GRACIOUS ONE. THESE ARE SUBHANALLAHI WA BI-HAMDIHI [All Glory is to Allah and all Praise to Him]; and SUBHANALLAH AL-AZIM [Glorified is Allah, the Great]." [Muslim, Bukhari, Tirmidhi]. In view of this, we should include the recital of these 2 Noble Phrases in good numbers DAILY in our Zikr... when we come to remember Allah Ta'ala in the mornings and evenings. Many Regards.
  6. As-Salaam alaikum, In many places of the Holy Qur'an, notably Ayat 110 of Surat Ali-Imran (3:110) and Ayat 100 of Surat Tauba (9:100), Allah, Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, praised and showed His Pleasure for the Sahaba, the Companions of Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam. They were a people whose actions and behaviors were all in accordance with the Islamic Shari'a... their sense of Generosity, Forgiveness, Justice and Selfless service to Humanity and Worship of Allah were highly exemplary Find hereby attached a compilation of 51 stories from a work titled: 'Companions Of The Prophet', for your perusal and use... as there are certainly lessons to draw therefrom. Best Wishes.. Companions of the Prophet.pdf
  7. As-Salaam alaikum, As a reminder, I wish to invite your attention to the following Ahadith.... all related from the Leader of Mankind and Jinn, Sayyadina Muhammad, the Noble Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, who said:-- ( 1) "Do not drink alcohol, for it is the key to all evil".- Ibn Majah (2) "The beauty of one's Islam requires his leaving what does not concern him".- Ibn Hibban (3) "Livelihood seeks a person out in the same way that his death seeks him out"- Ibn Hibban (4) "All the children of Adam are wrongdoers, but the best wrongdoers are those that repent"- al-Tirmidhi (5) "Feed the hungry, visit the sick and free captives."--Bukhari (6) "The key to Paradise is Sallah, and the key to Sallah is Wudu"- Tirmidhi.
  8. As-Salaam alaikum, When his companions asked: "O Messenger of Allah, what are the most excellent of actions?" The beloved of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, replied:-- "To gladden the heart of human beings, To feed the hungry, To help the afflicted, To lighten the sorrow of the sorrowful, and To remove the sufferings of the injured." [Sahih Bukhari ]. So, over to us all for guidance and necessary action accordingly.
  9. As-Salaam alaikum, In Ayat 21 of Surat Ahzab of the Holy Qur'an (33:21), Allahu Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala says:-- "You have indeed in the Apostle of Allah a beautiful pattern (of conduct), for anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Final Day, and who engages much in the praise of Allah." So, since our object is Allah Ta'ala and the Final Day, we are charged to follow the Prophetic guidance shown by Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam-- the guidance referred to as "a beautiful example.." that Allah loves. Teachers of old have always taught that the Prophet's beautiful example lies primarily in the inner qualities of his soul... designated by his compassion, justice, generosity, forgiveness etc... We should imitate him in this, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, by obeying the rules of Islamic Shari'a and overcoming everyday forgetfulness of the soul. This is closely related with the teaching in Ayat 31 of Surat Ali-Imran:-- "Say: If you love Allah, follow me, and Allah will forgive you your sins" (3:31) In otherwords, the way to become worthy of Allah's love is to follow Prophetic guidance. The goal of following this guidance is explained by a famous Hadith Qudsi in which the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, quotes the words of Allah, Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala:-- "When My Servant approaches Me through good works, then I love him. When I love him, I am the hearing with which he hears, the eye with which he sees, the hand with which he grasps, and the foot with which he walks." [Bukhari, Hadith No. 6502].
  10. As-Salaam alaikum, During his life, Imam Abu abdullah Muhammad Ibn Ahmad al-Qurtubi (d. 671/1273), may Allah be Merciful to him, produced a classic Tafsir of the Holy Qur'an.... which up to now is adjudged as one of the best explanations of the meaning of Allah's Words in the Holy Book. It is my pleasure to share with you the attached English Language translation of his monumental classic work, offered by A'isha Bewley... intended to give us access to the immense learning of Sheikh al-Qurtubi, and illuminate the way of understanding the Holy Qur'an. Do enjoy it. Tafsir_al_Qurtubi_-_Vol_I.pdf
  11. As-Salaam alaikum, In Ayat 87 of Surat Nisa'i of the Holy Qur'an, Allah Ta'ala says:-- "God! There is no god But He: of a surety He Shall gather you together against the Day of Judgement, about which there is no doubt. And whose word can be truer than God's?" Belief in the Final Day is one of the 6 pillars of fath...Imaan...preached by all Prophets. Belief on/in this Day should make us focus on what is our ultimate best interest and act accordingly. In that respect, find hereby attached a copy of Dr. Umar al-Ashqar's work titled: 'The Final Day in the Light Of the Qur'an and Sunnah'... It is a very well researched work, informative and educative on this subject. Enjoy it. The%20Day%20of%20Resurrection.pdf
  12. As-Salaam alaikum, We all know that death is a necessary end for all of us, it will come when it will. The book: 'Sharhus Sudoor' by Imam Jalaluddin Suyuti, may Allah be Merciful to him, is a very illuminating work/discussion on issues regarding death and the grave. Just what is death, what happens after death before the Day of Mahshar? All these and more are discussed in details in this book, a copy of which is hereby attached. Examine it towards preparation for death...... Best Wishes. 129-1423770807.pdf

  15. As-Salaam alaykum, In Ayat 46 of Surat Kahfi of the Holy Qur'an, Allah Ta'ala says:-- "Wealth and children are the embellishment of worldly life, and the good things that last (al-baqiyat-as-salihat) are greater with your Lord and greater in expectation." Material things are short-lived and temporary, but "the good things that last" will continue into the hereafter, and the hereafter is far better and everlasting. What are "the good things that last"? The Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, told us what they are in a Hadith in which one of his companions, Abu Sa'id al-Khudri, may Allah be pleased with him, reported that the Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:-- "Make plenty of the 'good things that last (al-baqiyat-salihat)'. It was said: And what are they, O Messenger of Allah?" He said: "TAKBIR (Saying: ALLAHU AKBAR); TAHLIL (Saying: LA-ILAHA ILLALLAH); TAHMID (Saying: ALHAMDULILLAH); and Saying: LA-HAWLA WALA QUWATA ILLA BILLAH." [Bukhari, Muslim]. In view of this, we should include lots of reciting of the 'baqiyat salihat in our daily Zikr, when we come to remember Allah in the mornings and evenings. Best Wishes.
