Permisibility of Using Dhikir Beads (Mashabaha)
Compiled by Imam Hakwalab.


Imam Shawkani said in Nayl al-awtar (2:316-317):
The Prophet justified the counting of dhikr on the fingers by the fact that the fingers will be questioned and will speak, that is, they will witness to that effect. It follows that counting tasbih on them, because of this aspect, is better than using dhikr-beads or pebbles. But the two other hadiths [of Sa`d ibn Abi Waqqas and Safiyya bint Huyayy] indicate the permissibility of counting tasbih with date-stones and pebbles, and similarly with dhikr-beads because there is no distinguishing factor between them in the Prophet's stipulation to the two women concerning it, and no disapproval of it. As for directing to what is better: this does not negate permissibility (la yunafi al-jawaz). There are reports to that effect.

xx How to Please Allah
March 08, 2016, 01:23:47 PM by Success Writer
Beautifully written !!!

"A friend will not (literally) share your struggles, and a loved one cannot physically take away your pain, and a close one will not stay up the night on your behalf...so look after yourself, protect it, nurture it...and don't give life's events more than what they are really worth...Be certain that when you break no one will heal you except you, and when you are defeated no one will give you victory except your determination...your ability to stand up again and carry on is your responsibility...Do not look for your self worth in the eyes of people; look for your worth from within your conscious...if your conscious is at peace then you will ascend high...and if you truly know yourself then what is said about you won't harm you.

Do not carry the worries of this life... because this is for Allah...and do not carry the worries of sustenance because it is from Allah...and do not carry the anxiety for the future because it is in the Hands of Allah...

Carry one thing: How to Please Allah. Because if you please Him, He Pleases you, fulfils you and enriches you. Do not weep from a life that made your heart weep...just say "oh Allah...compensate me with good in this life and the hereafter".

Sadness departs with a sajdah...happiness comes with a sincere du'a...Allah Does Not forget the good you do...nor Does He Forget the good you did to others and the pain you relieved them from...Nor Will He Forget the eye which was about to cry but you made it laugh...

Live your life with this principle: Be good even if you don't receive good...not because of other's sake but because Allah Loves the good doers".
xx WESTERN EDUCATION "OBSESSION
January 13, 2016, 09:21:52 AM by one9ja
WESTERN EDUCATION "OBSESSION"!!!
.
#CAUSES
1) As soon as a child becomes a year old, we
start buying toys for him or instilling the love of
pictorial objects or cartoons into him...

2) The mother begins to teach him/her baby that: A is for Apple and B is for Ball, but doesn't teach her
baby that A is for Allah and B is for Bismillah continuously.

2)At the age of two or three, we take him into a
day-care centre where his Western education
journey begins.

3) At the age of 3, s/he is in nursery 1 or KG 1.
Children ordinarily don't like going to schools 'cos
they are not used to it. They prefer the company
of Mummy at home. Thatís why they all cry when going to school.

4) The child begins to observe:

#Everyday my mummy prepares me for school

#Under the sun or in the rain

#I have a unique uniform for school

#With time, the kid begins to love "schooling" because it looks to him like the utmost reason of
existence.

-5) At the age of 5, he is in Primary one:

#Everyday, the parents wakes him up for school
but not for fajr

#He is quickly bathed on school days but not during
weekends

#His hair is combed and his nails trimmed so that he won't be beaten in school for dirtiness

#Everyday his assignments are checked by his parents but no one bothers about his Islamiyyah assignments

#His school fees are paid on time bt no one
cares about his Islamiyyah dues.

#The father takes him to school early "before"
assembly but the father doesn't take him to Juma'ah early "before" the Khutbah.

#The child begins to reason about all these. So he becomes more inclined to school than Islamiyyah!

6) When exams are approaching, the parents be like:

"Hey, no sleeping tonight, you gotta read, you must
come first in class"

#So the child begins to burn the night candles but no one orders him to wake up for tahajjud, "...he should be tired. After all, he READ overnight...!!!"

##His parents be like:

"I will buy WHATEVER you want for you if you come out with flying colours"

But, alas!!! no one makes such promises concerning his Islamiyyah exams.

##During exam periods, parents be like:
Hey, no more TV until you finish your exams, no more visiting of friends, no more football bla bla bla.

###So the child begins to see exam periods as a
kinda mini judgement day!
.
This is how a child's impression about Western
education is "conditioned" to look so great to him as if its the first purpose of creation!

#LONgTERmEFFECTs
On the long run, the child begins to think wild,
read wide about life and worldly things, but
hardly thinks about the hereafter.

1) He doesn't cry when going to school anymore 'cos he is used to staying away from home.
Because of this, he wants a boarding school or he
wants admission into a uni that's far away from
home! (Especially our Muslim girls)!!

2) They don't wanna be under mum's control
anymore. They wanna become their own "boss"!

3) When a teenager gets an admission into any
institution, he goes crazy, jubilating, and celebrating but when he is given an admission into an Halqah (study circle), he doesn't even
wear a smile on his face!

3) They now have big dreams, career obsession, "I wanna become a Professor by all means", but the young lad doesn't care about becoming a scholar of the Deen!
And the parents too be like:
'If u come out wit first class, I will send you to
"America" for your Masters'...

4) The child's obsession about western education
increases the more!
So s/he wants to earn dat first class by all means,
even by offering herself to the lecturer or sorting
his lecturer!

4) That's why you see that when Undergraduates
finally graduate from the University after their final
exams, they go crazy, jubilating, staining their
shirts wit markers, dancing, jumping, partying as if they have won a ticket to Jannah, you won't blame them, that's  because western education has been made to look like a TROPHY to them!

5) They are graduates and their spoken English is
mindblowing but they can't recite Suratul Faatihah with Tajweed!

6) They contest and compete for SUG presidents, class monitors, school association Presidents. But when it comes to Sallah, they go and stay at the last line!

7) When its time for NYSC, the Muslim girls won't
hesitate to wear bum-shots and t-shirts, they
"happily" run, jug and do exercises with men,
dance and partake in #MissNYSC because they don't give a damn what the religion says about all these because they already believe "anything" is worth
sacrificing for education to prevail.

##Because education has been made to look like a
competition while religion has been made to
look like an "option"!
.
#PROBLEMS...

1) This obsession, makes our women refuse to
get married until they have bagged degrees and
masters!

2) It makes d men lazy to prepare for marriage
until they have gotten a well paying job, a car, a
house and a professorship.

3) It makes our women quote western "proverbs"
often rather than quoting Ahaadith.

4) Our children loves soccer, artistes and
celebrities but they can't mention 10 Companions of the Prophet

5) Our children now have a whole room full of
novels, western books, encyclopedias and the
likes but the only islamic book they have at home is
the Quran!

6) Our kids now think, being an "elite" is d
ultimate success while those "Malams" are
illiterates who are losers in this world!

7) When that student finally gets a job, he becomes "obsessed" with it too at the detriment
of his Deen.

8) He goes to work everyday including sundays

9) He is always on business trips

10) He leaves home for work before his kids wake
up and he goes back home late when his kids
are already asleep.

11) During Subhi, he is on his way speeding to
work, during Dhuhr, he is busy wit office duty,
during Asr he is in a board meeting, during
maghrib he is just closing for d day, during Isha,
he is stuck in the traffic jam, when he gets home
he combines all his Salawaat "if" he has the
strength!

In summary, this is the kind of AQEEDAH that
our obsession for western education has instilled
in us, if not for the timely guidance that Alllah
has bestowed on us, how many are people out
there who are still wallowing in this pool of ignorance thinking dey are d successful ones?
Am not saying we shouldn't go to sch, surely
islam encourages education but not to the
extreme or at d detriment of Deen!

Suggest the possible solution yourselves as two good heads are better than one!

May Allah forgive and guide us, amen!

xx Father's advice on nikaah
November 10, 2015, 01:25:09 PM by Success Writer
FATHER'S ADVICE ON NIKAAH.

My Daughter, tomorrow you will stop being in my house. You will be happily married to the man you love. Dont miss me because I have fulfilled my purpose, it is now time for you to start fulfilling yours.

From your childhood, I have raised you well by the grace of Allaah but before you say I do, there are few things I need to tell you about living with a man and being married.

Do you remember when you wrote your WAEC and JAMB exams?  You came to me and I gave you 20,000 naira for the registration? Well, even though I gave it to you, the money was not mine. I know you always thought I paid the fees. The truth is, I was brokeÖ but your mother gave me the money. She could have given it to you but she decided to give it to me as the head of the house to give to you.

Support your husband.
Some times things will get toughÖ he will be frustrated. Even though he acts tough, in his mind he has fearsÖ he fear you may not value him anymore because he has fallen. That is the time to get behind him and support him! The best way to show your husband you love him is to RESPECT him!

You may argue with him, you may disagree but at the end of the day, let him know he has your respect.

Do you remember the day I screamed at your mother? What did she do? She was quiet!     Do you also remember the day she screamed at me? What did I do? I was quiet!
My daughter learn to be quiet sometimes when your husband is angry. When one person is hot, the other should be cool. If two are always screaming at same time, that is how big problems start in marriage.

The first thing to know about your husband is his favourite food! If he has more than one then keep them at the back of your mind. Dont let him ask for it, always prepare it for him. There was a day your mother caught me touching a womanís hand affectionately.

I was lust after that woman but I was not yet cheating on your mum. When she saw usÖ she didnt fight the lady, she quietly left. I was afraid of going home because all hell will break lose. But when I got home she said nothing. She served me my food. Guilt was taking control over me. I started begging. From that day, I never looked at a woman two times.

Who knows? If she had fought and threatened meÖ maybe I could have run away from the fight into the arms of the lady. Sometimes Silent brings better solution than fight.

Forget those romantic novels you read while you were 18 or 21. Remember those Indian and American love movies? Also remember those too sweet Nollywood films on African magic? Forget them!
Donít expect your married life to be that way. Life is different from fiction.

The last thing I want to tell youÖ.
Your mother is fun of doung her chore home job from morning till night yet she never refuse me of my night food. That is how you were born.

Don't form a habit of denying your husband of his night food.

Be a good wife!!!!!!

xx MUHARRAM 1437 TODAY!
October 14, 2015, 02:56:41 AM by Isaac Adeniran
IT'S MUHARRAM 1437 TODAY!

Muharram it's the first month of Hijrah calendar, and it's amongst the four sacred months we have in Islam which depicts sanctimonious exercise from entire muslim in the entire universe.

Abu Hurayrah reported: "I asked the Prophet (SAW): Which prayer is the best after the obligatory prayers? He said: Prayer during the middle of the night. I asked: which fast is the best after the fast of Ramadan? HE said, 'The Month of Allah that you call Muharram'". [This is related by Ahmad, Muslim, and Abu Dawud].

Ibn 'Abbas reported: "The Prophet (SAW) came to Madinah and found the Jews fasting on the day of 'Ashurah (The 10th of Muharram). He said to them: 'What is this fast?' They said: 'A great day. Allah saved Moses and the tribes of Israel from their enemies on this day and therefore, Moses fasted on this day'. The Prophet (SAW) said: 'We have more of a right to Moses than you', so he fasted on that day also and ordered the people to fast on that day". [This is recorded by al-Bukhari and Muslim].

According to al-Bukhari and Muslim, Musa al-Ash'ari reported: "The jews would honour the day of 'Ashurah as an 'Eid. The Prophet said: 'You (Muslims) are to fast on it".

Ibn 'Abbas reported again: "The Messenger of Allah fasted on the day of 'Ashurah and ordered the people to fast on it. The people said: 'O Messenger of Allah, it is a day that the Jews and Christians honour'. The Prophet said, 'When the following year comes - Allah willing - we shall fast on the night'. The death of the Prophet (SAW) came before the following year". [This is recorded by Muslim and Abu Dawud].

In one version the wording is: "If I remain until next year, we shall fast the ninth (9th) and the tenth (10th). This is related by Muslim and Abu Dawud.

The scholars have mentioned that the fast of 'Ashurah is of three levels: (1) fasting three days - that is, on the 9th, 10th and 11th of Muharram; (2) fasting on the 9th and 10th and (3) fasting only on the 10th of Muharram. 

As today (14th October, 2015) marks 1st of Muharram 1437, the 9th and 10th of Muharram shall be on 22nd and 23rd of October 2015 respectively.

May Allah who makes it possible for us to witness this new year Hijrah 1437 protect and guide us through the end and to see many of it in our life times, Aameen.
clip Jihad
October 17, 2014, 03:11:30 PM by omonaija
In Arabic, the word jihād is a noun meaning "struggle" or "resisting". A person engaged in jihad is called a mujahid, the plural of which is mujahideen. The word jihad appears frequently in the Quran, often in the idiomatic expression "striving in the way of God (al-jihad fi sabil Allah)".
Muslims and scholars do not all agree on its definition. Within the context of the classical Islamic law, it refers to struggle against those who do not believe in the Islamic God (Allah) and do not acknowledge the submission to Muslims, and so is often translated as "Holy War", although this term is controversial. According to the Dictionary of Islam  and Islamic historian Bernard Lewis, in the large majority of cases jihad has a military meaning. Javed Ghamidi states that there is consensus amongst Islamic scholars that the concept of jihad will always include armed struggle against wrong doers. It was generally supposed that the order for a general war could only be given by the Caliph (an office that was claimed by the Ottoman sultans), but Muslims who did not acknowledge the spiritual authority of the Caliphate (which has been vacant since 1923)ósuch as non-Sunnis and non-Ottoman Muslim statesóalways looked to their own rulers for the proclamation of a jihad. There has been in fact no universal warfare by Muslims on non-believers since the early caliphate. Some proclaimed Jihad by claiming themselves as mahdi, e.g. the Sudanese Mahommed Ahmad in 1882.
Others have given the word wider definitions. Many observersóboth Muslim  and non-Muslimótalk of jihad having two meanings: an inner spiritual struggleóthe "greater jihad"; and an outer physical struggle against the enemies of Islamóthe "lesser jihad"ówhich may take a violent or non-violent form.
Jihad is an important religious duty for Muslims. A minority among the Sunni scholars sometimes refer to this duty as the sixth pillar of Islam, though it occupies no such official status. In Twelver Shi'a Islam, however, Jihad is one of the ten Practices of the Religion
xx A muslin in Egypt killed his wife
August 28, 2014, 11:51:28 PM by life4real
A Muslim in Egypt killed his wife because she was reading the Bible and then buried her with their infant baby and an 8-year old daughter. The girls were buried alive! He then reported to the police that an uncle of his had killed his wife and kids. 15 days later, another family member died. When they went to bury him, they found the 2 little girls under the sand - ALIVE! The country was outraged over the incident, and the man is to be executed. The older girl was asked how she had survived and she said:-'A man wearing shiny white clothes, with bleeding wounds in his hands, came every day to feed us. He woke up my mum so she could nurse my sister. She was interviewed on Egyptian national TV, by a veiled Muslim woman news anchor. She said on public TV, 'This was none other than Jesus, because nobody else does things like this!' Muslims believe Isa (Jesus) would do this, but the wounds mean that He really was crucified, and it is clear also that He is alive! But, it is also clear that the child could not make up a story like this, and there is no way these children could have survived without a true miracle. Muslim leaders are going to have a hard time to figure out what to do with this, and the popularity of the Passion movie does not help matters at all! With Egypt at the centre of the media and education in the Middle East, you can be sure this story will spread. Christ is still turning the world upside down! Please let this story be shared. The Lord says, 'I will bless the person who puts his trust in me' ( Jer 17).  Please forward this story to all your contacts and God will reward you abundantly! In Mark 8:38, Jesus  said, 'Therefore whosoever shall be ashamed of Me and my Words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man shall also be ashamed of him when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels'.Don't worry about whether or not the receivers of this message will respond or do anything with it, just fulfill your part.
xx Hijab brought me to Islam
April 22, 2013, 10:37:31 AM by one9ja
Hijab brought me to Islam

Jessica Rhodes is a 21 year old female from Norwich, UK who works as a telesales consultant and is also a student. She was a Pagan before reverting to Islam a month ago.
She was born in 1991 and was adopted in 1993. Grew up in a small seaside town on the south east coast of England, she went to university at 19 to study for a degree in Music and she hopes to do postgraduate qualifications in counselling starting September 2013.
She has an amazing story of her reversion and how she got attracted to Islam.

New York based lady Nazma Khan started a campaign known as Ďworld hijab dayí.

The movement has been organised almost solely over social networking sites.

It has attracted interest from Muslims and non-Muslims in more than 50 countries across the world. For many people, the hijab is a symbol of oppression and divisiveness. Itís a visible target that often bears the brunt of a larger debate about Islam in the West. World Hijab Day is designed to counteract these controversies.
