*Virtues of Muharram and Fasting on 'Ashura',*

(Episode 5)

_It is Mustahabb (Encouraged) to Fast Tasu'a' with 'Ashura'...._

'Abdullah ibn 'Abbas ( may Allah be pleased with them both ) said: "When the Messenger of Allah ( peace and blessings of Allah be upon him ) fasted on 'Ashura' and commanded the Muslims to fast as well, they said, 'O Messenger of Allah, it is a day that is venerated by the Jews and Christians.'

 The Messenger of Allah ( peace and blessings of Allah be upon him ) said, 'If I live to see the next year, in sha Allah, we will fast on the ninth day too.' But it so happened that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) passed away before the next year came."

 [Reported by Muslim, 1916]
Ash-Shafi'i and his companions, Ahmad, Ishaq and others said: "It is mustahabb to fast on both the ninth and tenth days, because the Prophet ( peace and blessings of Allah be upon him ) fasted on the tenth, and intended to fast on the ninth."

On this basis it may be said that there are varying degrees of fasting 'Ashura' , the least of which is to fast only on the tenth and the best of which is to fast the ninth as well. The more one fasts in Muharram, the better it is.

*The Reason Why it is Mustahabb to Fast on Tasu'a'*

An-Nawawi ( may Allah have mercy on him ) said:
"The scholars – our companions and others – mentioned several reasons why it is mustahabb to fast on Tasu'a' :

The intention behind it is to be different from the Jews, who only venerate the tenth day.

This opinion was reported from Ibn 'Abbas …
The intention is to add another day's fast to 'Ashura' . This is akin to the prohibition on fasting a Friday by itself, as was mentioned by al-Khattabi and others.

To be on the safe side and make sure that one fasts on the tenth, in case there is some error in sighting the crescent moon at the beginning of Muharram and the ninth is in fact the tenth."

The strongest of these reasons is being different from the People of the Book.

5 things are dashed to us by Allah.

1.Do you know that Prayers are never turned down when done immediately after adzan before iqamah? Ask Allah all ur needs during this time, for, prayers are automatically accepted!

2. Do you know where our sins are kept while in prayer? Sins are kept on our necks and shoulders and when we bow down to make the ruku' and Sujuds, they fall like how leaves fall down from trees. So stay long while in ruku' and sujud!

3. Have you heard that a woman died and when her relatives visited her grave they felt an awesome fragrance coming out of her grave? They asked her husband and he said she recited Suratul Mulk every
night while she was alive!

4. Do you know that if u recite Ayatul Kursiyyu after every congregational prayer that there will be nothing that prevents u from jannah except death?

5. Do you know that angels ask Allah to forgive us whenever we finish prayer? So please stay long after prayers, don't leave immediately! May Allah make this as Sadakatul-Jariya for me and may Allah accept my prayers in Tawassul with this act.

May Allah also do the same to whom so ever forward this and benefit others as much as the
numbers he forward...

☂Surround yourself with Muslims who practice the Deen. They are your only True Friends in this Life and in the Hereafter.

☂Not everybody is out there to judge you, there are some who want the best for you and want to help you get into Al-Jannah, value them.

☂Indeed, a friend who doesn't care about your Aakhirāh is not really your friend.

☂Sometimes the hardest person for you to correct is yourself. There is no shame in being wrong, the shame is in choosing to stay on the wrong path.

☂Whatever takes you NEAR to Allah, takes you AWAY from Hellfire. Whatever takes you AWAY from Allah, takes you CLOSER to Hellfire.

☂We all take tomorrow for granted because we believe tomorrow will always be there. Tomorrow may be there, but we may not!

☂Who said "TOMORROW" is guaranteed? Make the use of "TODAY" that you are blessed with!

Muslim pilgrims mark final hajj rite with ‘Stoning of Devil’

In stifling heat, a Saudi security guard sprayed Muslim pilgrims with water as they advanced through Mina for the final rite of the hajj, the “Stoning of the Devil” that has proved lethal in past years.

Pilgrims gathered under the scorching sun in Mina on Friday for the final major ritual — the symbolic Stoning of the Devil — at the Jamarat Bridge, the scene of a stampede in 2015 that left 2,300 people dead.

Saudi Arabia reported no major health or safety upsets at the Jamarat Bridge, as the Muslim faithful made their way through the last leg of the five-day pilgrimage.

For many, the pilgrimage, which all Muslims must perform at least once if physically and financially able, has been a lifelong dream.

Amin Hashkir, a 26-year-old from Casablanca in Morocco, travelled to western Saudi Arabia, home of the holiest sites in Islam, together with his sister and mother, who was unable to physically perform the stoning rite herself.

Pilgrims throng Mount Arafat for peak of hajj

Their palms facing the sky, around two million Muslims gathered Thursday on Saudi Arabia’s Mount Arafat for the highlight of the hajj pilgrimage, one of the world’s largest annual gatherings.

With temperatures pushing 40 degrees Celsius (104 Fahrenheit) under the desert sun, the faithful climbed the hill east of Mecca where Muslims believe the Prophet Mohammed gave his last sermon some 14 centuries ago.

They gathered in prayer on Jabal al-Rahma, or Mount of Mercy, for the second day of the hajj — a five-day pilgrimage which all Muslims must perform at least once in their lifetime if physically and financially able.

Nada and Fida, two sisters from Syria, said they had dedicated their prayers to their home country, where more than 330,000 people have been killed and millions displaced since its civil war broke out in 2011.

“I want Syria to go back to the way it was before,” said Nada, 52.

“And for our youth to come back home,” added her 47-year-old sister.

At sunset, a sea of pilgrims clad in white made their way down the hill and headed to Muzdalifa to spend the night.

On Friday, they will move on to Mina before sunrise for the hajj ritual of the symbolic “Stoning of the Devil”.

O Allah help me to connect with my children. Help me to bond with them at a level where the love and affection is strong, where there is openness, where there is respect and where shaytaan is unable to penetrate.
Guide their inclinations so that in an adverse situation their feeling would be to turn to You first and then to the family  instead of turning to dunya.

Please Allah, keep our family always happy and wholesome and a source of goodness so that the light of the family unit guides every individual in the family and protects them from the evils of the day.

Keep our home safe so it is a sanctuary against the evil of society. Help us to create an environment where our home is more inviting to our kids than the malls and general social areas and they actually prefer to be home rather than out on the streets, in clubs, movies, bars and other such places of evil.

PLEASE Allah grant us barakah in our time so that time is ample for strengthening family relations and much of our time is utilized as such.

ALLAH please remove the usage of harsh language and coarse mannerisms in our home. Maintain respect, kindness, gratitude and mercy  and help my children to carry those values to the homes they create in future.

Help me to know what to say to my children that will open up our pathways of communication so that they find it easy to talk to me and do not ever feel the need to hide things from me out of fear or shame.

Help my spouse and I to be the best muslims we can be so that we are the best role models to our children. Help me to not be a hypocrite  and force my children to behave in a way that I do not aspire to behave.

ALLAH You know best our situation.
The family is the cornerstone of a stable society so please strengthen my family with imaan so that we are proud flag bearers of Islam and through our stable, solid family unit may the ummah be strengthened in both unity and imaan.

آمِيْن يَارَبَّ الْعَالَمِينْ

xx Big Lesson for Christians and Muslims
August 23, 2017, 03:28:24 PM by Isaac Adeniran
Big Lesson for Christians and Muslims: Robin Scott shared this on her Facebook page:

Christians and Muslims are more alike than different.

Please read that which I have discovered - Robin

1. Jesus taught that there is only One God and Only God should be worshipped as taught in Deut 6:4, Mark 12:29.
Muslims also believe this as taught in the Qur’an verse 4:171.

2. Jesus didn’t eat pork as taught in Leviticus 11:7, and neither do Muslims as taught in the Qur’an verse 6:145.

3. Jesus greeted with the words “as salaamualaikum” (Peace be with you) in John 20:21. Muslims also greet each other this way.

4. Jesus always said “God Willing” (inshallah), Muslims say this too before doing anything as taught in the Qur’an verses 18:23-24.

5. Jesus washed his face, hands, and feet before praying. The Muslims do the same.

6. Jesus and other prophets of the Bible offerd prayer with their head to the ground (see Matthew 26:39). Muslims do too as taught in the Qur’an verse 3:43.

7. Jesus had beard and wore a throbe. It is Sunnah for Muslim men to do the same.

8. Jesus followed the law and believed in all the prophets, (see Matthew 5:17). Muslims do too as taught in the Qur’an
verses 3:84, and 2:285.

9. Jesus’ mother Maryam dressed modestly by fully covering her body and wearing a headscarf (hijab) as found in 1 Timothy 2:9, Genesis 24:64-65, and Corinthians 11:6. Muslim women modestly dress the same as taught in the Qur’an verse 33:59.

10. Jesus and other prophets of the Bible fasting up to 40 days (see Exodus 34:28, Daniel 10:2-6, Kings 19:8, and Matthew 4:1- Muslims do so also during the month of Ramadan. Muslims are required to fast the full obligatory 30 days (see Qur’an 2:183), and others take it a step further by fasting an additional 6 days to increase their rewards.

Many Muslims think that the steps of Hajj & Umrah are too complicated. Therefore, they make little or no effort to learn how to perform  essential rites correctly;

🔹Hajj is one of the best acts of worship & a pillar of Islam with which Allah sent Muhammad (sallAllaahu ‘alayhiwasallam) & without which a person’s religious commitment is incomplete. *“And Hajj to the house (ka’bah) is a duty that mankind owes to Allah, those who can afford the expenses; and whoever disbelieves (denies it is a disbeliever of Allah), then Allah stands not in need of the ‘Aalameen (3:97)*.

🔹The prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhiwasallam) said: from one umrah to the next is an expiation for whatever (sins) came between them, and for an accepted hajj, there is no reward but paradise.” Bukhari.Worship cannot be accepted or bring a person closer to Allaah unless it meets 2- conditions:

1⃣ Sincerity towards Allaah alone, i.e., it is done to seek the countenance of Allaah in the Hereafter & is not done to show off, to enhance one’s reputation or for worldly gain.
2⃣ Following the Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhiwasallam) in word & deed by knowing his Sunnah.


TAMATTU.... entering ihraam for ‘Umrah only during the months of Hajj (Shawwaal, Dhu’l-Qi’dah & Dhu’l-Hijjah). Pilgrim reaches Makkah & performs tawaaf (circumambulation of the kaaba) & saa’i (journeying between safar & marwa) for ‘Umrah, & shaves his head or cuts his hair & exits ihraam. This is UMRAH. On the day of al-Tarwiyah, (8th of Dhu’l-Hijjah), he enters ihraam for Hajj only, & does all the actions of Hajj. So, Tamattu’ means a complete ‘Umrah & a complete Hajj with interruption.

IFRAAD... entering ihraam for Hajj only. Pilgrim reaches Makkah & performs tawaaf al-qudoom (tawaaf of arrival) & saa’i for Hajj, but he does not shave or cut his hair & does not exit ihraam...
xx The necessity of Sunnah to understand The Qur'an and Parables on that
July 30, 2017, 03:35:03 AM by Isaac Adeniran
*SECOND REMINDER*. Saturday. *_The necessity of Sunnah to understand The Qur'an and Parables on that_*.*BismilLahir Rahmaanir Raheem*.

Allah says:  The male thief and female thief cut off their hands (5:38) is a fitting example of that. The thief in it is general like the hand.

The oral tradition explains the first of them and restricts it by 'as-sareq' (the thief) who steals something worth a fourth of a Dinar according to the saying of the Prophet (peace be upon him) There is no cutting - of the hand - unless the thing stolen is worth a fourth of a Dinar or more (Bukari & Muslim).

Again, the other is explained by the action of the Prophet (peace be upon him) or the action of his companions and his confirmation. They used to cut the hand of the thief from the wrist as is known in the work of Hadeeth. The oral tradition explains the hand mentioned in the verse on Tayammum (dust ablution) And rub therewith your faces and hands (5:6) is also the palm of the hand as is stated in a Hadeeth Tayammum is the wiping of the face and the hands recorded by the two shaikhs and Ahmad and others from a tradition reported by Ammar bin Yasir (may Allah be pleased with them).

There are other verses that cannot be completely understood except through Sunnah. They are:
