“Indeed the patient will receive their reward without measure“ (Suratuz Zumar Vs 10)


Upon the authority of who said that the Messenger of Allah – Sallallahu alaihi Was Salam said:
The fasting person has two occasions of joy! One when he breaks his fast and one when he meets his lord“(Collected by Muslim (2762)


Indeed Allah accepts only from those who are muttaqoon (God-fearing)”(Suratul Maa’idah Vs 27)

My Lord, Forgive me and my parents and him who enters my house believing, and believing men and believing women: and do not increase the unjust in anything but destruction” (Suratun Nooh Vs 28)



My Lord, Forgive me and my parents and the believers on the day of reckoning” (Suratul Ibraaheem Vs 41)

 “Know that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah, then seek forgiveness for your sin and (seek forgiveness) for the believers male and female..” (Suratul Muhammad Vs 19)

And those who give (in charity) that which they give, with their hearts full of fear (whether their charity has been accepted or not) because they are sure to return to their Lord (for reckoning)”
(Suratul Mu’minoon Vs 60)

Abu 'Iyaad Amjad Rafiq - Advice and Reminder during Ramadhaan





The Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon
him) said: “Every son of Adam makes mistakes, and the best of those who make
mistakes are those who repent.” (Reported by al-Tirmidhi, no. 2499, and by Ibn
Maajah, who narrated this version – al-Sunan, ed. by ‘Abd al-Baqi, no.
4251)




Allah – the Most High – said:


“But if we let man taste the good favours after poverty and
harm has touched him, he is sure to boastfully say: Harm has departed
from me. Indeed he is exultant, boastful and ungrateful to Allah, Except
those who show patience and do deeds of righteousness and obedience to
Allah, for them will be forgiveness and a great reward.”
[Surah Hud 11:10-11].

Jealousy and Envy



The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam) said: "They are enemies for Allah's bounties." They asked: "Who are they?" He said:"Those who envy people for what Allah has given them of
Bounty."
[at-Tabaranee]



Allah says:"Allah favored some of you over others with wealth and properties¦ Do they deny the favors of Allah?" [Soorah an-Nahl (16): 71] And: "Do they envy men for what Allah has given them of His Bounty?" [Soorah an-Nisa (4): 54]


"It is We Who portion out between them their livelihood in this world, and We raised some of them above others in ranks, so that some may employ others in their work. But the mercy of your Lord is better."[Soorah az-Zukhruf (43): 32]

"Say: I seek refuge in the Lord of the dawn… from the evil of envious when he
envies."
[Soorah al-Falaq (113): 1]


 At-Tirmidhee narrated from al-Zubayr Ibn al-Awam that the Prophet (sallallahualaihi wa-sallam) said: "There has come to you the disease of the nations before you, jealousy and hatred. This is the 'shaver' (destroyer); I do not say that it shaves hair, but that it shaves (destroys) faith" [(Hasan) Jamee at-Tirmidhee (2434)]

The Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam) warned against envy by comparing it to fire that completely burns the wood. He (sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam) said: "Beware of jealousy, for verily it destroys good deeds the way fire destroys wood." [Abu Dawood]


Hasad is a disease of the heart and it causes impurity to the heart, when Allah's Messenger (sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam) was asked who are the best of people? He (sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam) replied: "the one with a clean heart and truthful tongue." They asked: 'We understand a truthful tongue, but what does a clean heart mean?' he answered:'It is the heart of one that is pious, pure, and is free of sin, transgressions, hatred and Hasad." [Ibn Majah]


Narrated Abu Musa: Allah's Apostle said, "Allah gives respite to the oppressor, but when He takes him over, He never releases him." Then he recited, "Such is the seizure of your Lord when He seizes (population of) towns in the midst of their wrong: Painful indeed, and severe is His seizure.' (11.102) Sahih Bukhari: Volume 6, Book 60, Number 208. 

Allah, the Exalted, has therefore forbidden us from desiring what other have,"Do not wish for what we have favored some of you over others." [Soorah an-Nisa (4): 32]
  
"Surely, the most noble of you to Allah is the most God-fearing." [Soorah al-Hujurat (49): 13]
"And the Hereafter with Your Lord is (only) for those who have Taqwa." [Soorah az-Zukhruf (43): 35]


In order to discourage envy, the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam) said:"Do not look to those above you. Look to those below you, as it will more likely remind you of Allah's favors bestowed on you."[Saheeh al-Bukharee and Saheeh Muslim] On another occasion, he said:"If one of you looks at someone wealthier and better built than him, he should also look at someone of lower standard than himself." [Saheeh Muslim]

Allah says: "O mankind! There has come to you a good advice from your Rabb and a healing for that in your chests." [Soorah Yunus (10): 57]

Did Jesus Claim to be God??? : Ahmed Deedat




Jesus Cannot Be God (Clear Proof) - [HD]



4:171 "O People of the Book!  Commit no excesses in your religion:  Nor say of God aught but the truth.  Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) an apostle of God, ..."

Allah will guide those who believe and do righteous deeds by their faith to the Straight Path.



Adhering to the Laws of Allah and Doing Righteous Deeds--Allah says (interpretation of the meaning): "Allah will keep firm those who believe, with the word that stands firm in this world and in the Hereafter. And Allah will cause to go astray those who are dhalimun (polytheists and wrongdoers, etc.), and Allah does what He wills." [Al-Qur'an 14:27]

Do Muslims - - - | Celebrate | Particpate in | Acknowledge - - - Christmas?



Those who disbelieved among the People of the Scripture and the polytheists were not to be parted [from misbelief] until there came to them clear evidence -Surat Al-Bayyinah (The Clear Proof) 98:1

Prophet Saleh(as) & the people of Thamud. Carved Houses out of Mountains...



Salih and the People of Thamud

Here Allah tells us about His servant and Messenger Salih, whom He sent to his people Thamud. Thamud came after `Ad and before Abraham, peace be upon him. Their Prophet Salih called them to Allah, to worship Him alone with no partner or associate, and to obey whatever commands were conveyed to them, but they refused, rejecting him and opposing him. He told them that he did not seek any reward from them for his call to them, but that he would seek the reward for that with Allah. Then he reminded them of the blessings of Allah.

146. "Will ye be left secure, in (the enjoyment of) all that ye have here?-

147. "Gardens and Springs,

148. "And corn-fields and date-palms with spathes near breaking (with the weight of fruit)?

149. "And ye carve houses out of (rocky) mountains with great skill.

150. "But fear Allah and obey me;

151. "And follow not the bidding of those who are extravagant,-

152. "Who make mischief in the land, and mend not (their ways)."

A Reminder to Them of their Circumstances and the Blessings

They enjoyed Salih preached to them, warning them that the punishment of Allah could overtake them and reminding them of the blessings that Allah had bestowed upon them, by giving them ample provision and making them safe from all kinds of dangers, giving them gardens and flowing springs, and bringing forth for them crops and fruits.

So, Salih said to them:

(So, have Taqwa of Allah, and obey me.) Pay attention to that which could benefit you in this world and the Hereafter; worshipping your Lord Who created you, who granted you provisions so that you could worship Him alone and glorify Him morning and evening.

(And follow not the command of the extravagant, who make mischief in the land, and reform not.) meaning, their chiefs and leaders, who called them to Shirk, disbelief and opposition to the truth.

The Response of Thamud, Their Demand for a Sign, and Their Punishment

Allah tells us how Thamud responded to their Prophet Salih, upon him be peace, when he called them to worship their Lord, may He be glorified.

153. They said: "Thou art only one of those bewitched!
Meaning,`how can you receive Revelation when we do not'

154. "Thou art no more than a mortal like us: then bring us a Sign, if thou tellest the truth!"

A crowd of them gathered and demanded that he immediately bring forth from the rock a she-camel that was ten months pregnant, and they pointed to a certain rock in their midst. Allah's Prophet Salih made them promise that if he responded to their request, they would believe in him and follow him. So they agreed to that. The Prophet of Allah Salih, peace be upon him, stood and prayed, then he prayed to Allah to grant them their request. Then the rock to which they had pointed split open, revealing a she-camel that was ten months pregnant, excactly as they had requested. So some of them believed, but most of them disbelieved

155. He said: "Here is a she-camel: she has a right of watering, and ye have a right of watering, (severally) on a day appointed.

Meaning, `she will drink from your water one day, and on the next day you will drink from it.'

156. "Touch her not with harm, lest the Penalty of a Great Day seize you."

He warned them of the punishment of Allah if they should do her any harm. The she-camel
stayed among them for a while, drinking the water, eating leaves and grazing, and they benefitted
from her milk which they took in sufficient quantities for everyone to drink his fill. After this had
gone on for a long time, and the time for their destruction drew near, they conspired to kill her:

157. But they ham-strung her: then did they become full of regrets.

Their land was shaken by a strong earthquake, and there came to them an overwhelming Sayhah (shout) which took their hearts from their places. They were overtaken by events which they were not expecting, so they were left (dead), lying prostrate in their homes.

158. But the Penalty seized them. Verily in this is a Sign: but most of them do not believe.

159. And verily thy Lord is He, the Exalted in Might, Most Merciful.

NEVER EVER TRUST KUFFAR NON-BELIEVER

The American Campaign To Suppress Islam



Dear Muslims In light of this dreadful goal, you must wake up and realise the reality behind what the Kuffar and their followers are plotting. You are today called upon to defend your creed, your deen, and your existence as a Ummah because nations last as long as their ideologies remain, but they vanish when their ideologies vanish. It is time to distinguish Truth from Falsehood as clear and distinct as life is from death. On one side, the side of Falsehood - are America, the Kafir West, and your rulers and their supporters which includes the politicians, thinkers, economists, people of the media, and others allured by Capitalism and seduced by its way of life, together with those who call for democracy, pluralism, human rights, and free market policies. And on the other side, the side of the Truth - are the aware and sincere carriers of the Islamic dawah and those who follow them from among the Muslim Ummah who adhere to their deen. Your destiny is determined by this battle. After this battle, there is either dignity in this life and the Hereafter or death and the disgrace of both this life and the hereafter, may Allah forbid. Every Muslim who believes in Allah and His Messenger, and the deen that the Prophet (saw) came with, is obliged to stand on the side of Truth. He has no other choice because there is no room for neutrality in this decisive battle.

New Concerning Doubts about Islam and Its Rulings

The Unstoppable - Student of Islam (الطلاب)

The Universal Shirk with Nationalism & Democracy



Nationalism is nothing but an European agenda to divide muslim world into countries so that we cannot united again to revive the Caliphate and they are successful so far.

In Quran Allah says in sura Al-i-Imran 3:103 [http://tanzil.net/#3:103]
"And hold firmly to the rope of Allah all together and do not become divided. And remember the favor of Allah upon you - when you were enemies and He brought your hearts together and you became, by His favor, brothers. And you were on the edge of a pit of the Fire, and He saved you from it. Thus does Allah make clear to you His verses that you may be guided"

Democracy is a system to govern people by man made laws not by the laws of Allah. Group of elite people can make something halal what Allah has made haram, ex. widespread acceptance of Homosexuality which is haram in Islam.

Sheikh Imran Hosein and Abdur Raheem Green are worldly renowned Islamic Scholar.

Islam & Racism



Islam has the answer for all the problems of the Mankind including Racism...

No Racism in Islam - Piety is not related to your skin color



No Racism in Islam - Piety is not related to your skin color

Mufti Muhammad ibn Adam al-Kawthari narrates hadith on taqwa vs. racism

Murtaza Khan- Shaytan was the first Racist



Its an unfortunate reality that racism exists in our Ummah today. Whether it be white and black, Raja and Chaudry, Nationalism, social status..

A man once visited the Prophet's mosque in Madinah. There he saw a group of people sitting and discussing their faith together. Among them were Salman (who came from Persia), Suhayb who grew up in the Eastern Roman empire and was regarded as a Greek, and Bilal who was an African. The man then said:

"If the (Madinan) tribes of Aws and Khazraj support Muhammad, they are his people (that is, Arabs like him). But what are these people doing here?"

The Prophet became very angry when this was reported to him. Straightaway, he went to the mosque and summoned people to a Salat. He then addressed them saying:

"O people, know that the Lord and Sustainer is One. Your ancestor is one, your faith is one. The Arabism of anyone of you is not from your mother or father. It is no more than a tongue (language). Whoever speaks Arabic is an Arab." (As quoted in Islam The Natural Way by Abdul Wahid Hamid p. 125)

Sheikh ibn Salih al-Uthaymeen - The Qur'an is the Speech of Allah



The methodology of Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamaa'ah is that the Qur'an is the revealed speech of Allah, not created. From Him it began, and to Him it will return. He actually spoke with it, making Jibreel responsible for descending with it and revealing it upon the heart of Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). Both the Qur'an and Sunnah prove this belief.

From the proofs of the Qur'an is the statement of Allah (the Exalted): And if anyone of the Mushrikoon seeks your protection, then grant him protection so that he may hear the speech of Allah. (Qur'an 9:6)

The "speech of Allah" here means the Qur'an. Another proof is His (Exalted is He) statement: A blessed Book which we have revealed to you that they might reflect on its verses and that those of understanding would be reminded. (Qur'an 38:29)

And His saying: The trustworthy spirit (Jibreel) has brought it down upon your heart, that you may be one of the warners - in a clear Arabic language. (Qur'an 26:193-195)

Sheikh Salih al-Fawzan - Obeying others besides Allah



Bismillah al-Rahman al-Raheem
In the name of Allah, the most Gracious, the Most Merciful

In his book, "Guide to The Sound Creed", Sheikh Salih al-Fawzan (may Allah have mercy on him) said:
One of the acts of polytheism is to obey scholars and rulers in permitting the unlawful or prohibiting the lawful. Allah, the Almighty, says: They have taken their scholars and monks as lords besides Allah, and (also) the Messiah, the son of Mary. And they were not commanded except to worship one God; there is no deity except Him. Exalted is He above whatever they associate with Him. (Qur'an 9:31)

'Adi ibn Hatim (may Allah be pleased with him) has narrated: "I heard the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) reciting: They have taken their rabbis and monks as lords besides Allah... (Qur'an 9:31) So, I said: 'O Messenger of Allah! We did not worship them.' He (peace and blessings be upon him) said: 'Did they not prohibit what Allah made lawful , so you view it as prohibited, and they make lawful what Allah prohibited, so you view it as lawful?' I said: 'Yes.' Thereupon, he said: 'This is your worship of them.'"
The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) has explained that the concept of taking rabbis and monks as lords besides Allah is not confined to the literal meaning of bowing and prostrating before them. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) has demonstrated that the Jews and Christians have followed the steps of their rabbis and monks in altering Divine Legislations by permitting the unlawful and prohibiting the lawful. By doing so, such people have been regarded as ones surrendering themselves to rivals set for sharing Allah's duty of lawgiving. It is, in principle, an act of major polytheism. Almighty Allah has said: And they were not commanded except to worship one God; there is no deity except Him, Exalted is He above whatever they associate with Him. (Qur'an 9:31)

None will enter Jannah due to their Deeds
Asalaamualaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakathu

Narrated Abu Huraira: I heard Allah’s Apostle saying, “The good deeds of any person will not make him enter paradise.” (i.e., None can enter paradise through his good deeds.) They (the Prophet’s companions) said, ‘Not even you, O Allah’s Apostle?’ He said, “Not even myself, unless Allah bestows His favor and mercy on me.” So be moderate in your religious deeds and do the deeds that are within your ability: and none of you should wish for death, for if he is a good doer, he may increase his good deeds, and if he is an evil doer, he may repent to Allah.”

Even if we were to do 100 years worth of deeds, our deeds will not be worth enough to accept us into paradise – it is only through Allaah’s infinite mercy that anyone enters paradise.

Allaah says: ““Eat and drink in good cheer in return for what you did [in life]!” [77:43] – there is no contradiction with the hadeeth and this ayah. Because of the good they did, Allaah is being kind to them and encompassing them in His kindness. It is not due to their deeds that they are entering paradise. Moreover, due to their good deeds, they are people whom Allaah loves.

There is never any contradiction between Quraan and Hadeeth – some ayah or hadeeth may simply just require an explanation.
Amongst the hadeeth, there are some that have been abrogated by others. Some the prophet (salAllaahu alayhi wa salam) did in earlier life while others he did in later life.

One should take the middle path in religion (but not like the modern day definition of modernists)

One should act according to the best of their ability, Allaah has made the religion easy (e.g if someone is unable to stand and pray, they may sit down and pray)

One should try their best to do what is closest to the right thing

Only Allaahs favour and mercy will make people enter paradise

One should constsantly do tawbah and increase in ones good deeds – “”And worship your Lord until there comes to you the certainty (i.e. death)” [15:99]

A Mujahid may wish for death as a special case because it is permissible to wish for shahadah.

*hadeeth found in Bukhari, Book 70, #577

“The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, ‘The words that I spoke softly and you heard were that because of this event I made this supplication: O Allah! I fight with Your help. I attack with Your support. And there is no might nor power save with Allah.’” [Tirmidhi]

Generosity

Al-hamdulillah ala kulli hal. Praise is due to Allah in every circumstance (even the depressing ones)

'Whoever forgives and makes peace will receive his reward from his Lord' [42:40].



As humans, we have an innate sense of morality. No matter what religion, race or colour we are, certain qualities serve as the moral standard. We admire justice, bravery, honesty and compassion. We abhor those who demonstrate treachery, cruelty or corruption. Moral standards are universal, and one of the most important aspects of Islam is adherence to high moral standards and good manners. Prophet Muhammad. May the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, taught Muslims to have the best manners and personal characteristics. The Prophet’s own high standard of morals and manners made him the best example for Muslims to follow. God said in the Quran:

“And verily you, O Muhammad, are on an exalted standard of character.” (Quran 68:4)

Generosity was among the countless good qualities of the Prophet Muhammad. He was the most generous of people and he used to be most generous in Ramadan.[1]

One day the Prophet Muhammad offered the prayer in the mosque and then hurriedly went to his house and returned immediately. A companion asked why he left and he replied,

“I left a piece of gold at home which was given for charity and I disliked letting it remain a night in my house, so I bought it to the mosque to distribute.” (Saheeh Al-Bukhari)

Our worldly possessions are bounties from God, who is Al Kareem, the Most Generous. Muslims believe that everything originates from God and everything will return to Him, thus, it is logical to behave as if that which we possess is merely a loan, something we are obligated to preserve, protect and ultimately share.

Whenever Prophet Muhammad met a miserly person, he advised him to be more generous and charitable. Ibn `Abbas said that he heard Prophet Muhammad say, “The believer is not the one who eats when his neighbour beside him is hungry,” another companion heard the Prophet say, “The believer is simple and generous, but the wicked person is deceitful and ignoble.”

Generosity Defined
Princeton University wordnet defines generosity as the willingness to give freely. Islam encourages this concept of generosity so much so that it is embedded in one of the five pillars of Islam, the obligatory charity known as Zakaat. In Arabic, the term zakaat literally means purification of the heart however; it is also the payment, from surplus money, of an obligatory charity designed by God to provide for all the needy members of the community. It is a fixed calculable amount.

There is also another form of generosity in Islam called sadaqa. Linguistically, sadaqa means truthfulness, and some scholars have described it as the heart being truthful to its Creator. Anything given generously - freely to others - with the intention of pleasing God is sadaqa. Sadaqa can be as simple as a smile, helping an elderly person with their groceries or removing objects from the road or path.

Generosity can be viewed as a wise investment in the future. Generosity or sadaqa may pave the way to Paradise because with every generous act comes great reward from God. However, being generous does not only mean giving freely from what you have in abundance. Generosity does not lie in giving away something that is no longer useful but in giving freely from the things we love or need.

Aisha (the wife of the Prophet) said, “A lady, along with her two daughters came to me asking for some alms, but she found nothing with me except one date which I gave to her and she divided it between her two daughters.” (Saheeh Al-Bukhari)

God tells us in the Quran that whatever we give away generously, with the intention of pleasing Him, He will replace it. God knows what is in the hearts of men.

Say: “Truly, my Lord enlarges the provision for whom He wills of His slaves, and also restricts it) for him, and whatsoever you spend of anything (in God’s Cause), He will replace it. And He is the Best of providers.” (Quran 34:39)

The Value of Generosity
The companions of Prophet Muhammad understood the value of being generous. Abdullah ibn Omar was seen in the market buying fodder for his camel on credit. One of the men queried this knowing that Abdullah had received 4000 dirhams and a blanket the previous day. It was explained that before nightfall Abdullah had distributed the money amongst the needy. He then took the blanket, threw it over his shoulder and headed home, but by the time he arrived even the blanket was gone, he had given it to a needy person.

After the death of the Prophet, the people faced great hardship due to drought. They came to Abu Bakr asking him to provide them with enough to sustain them, but he was unable to help, the treasury was empty. Just at that time, the camel caravan belonging to Uthman arrived from Damascus. It was filled with foodstuffs and other goods. The merchants gathered at Uthman’s house offering him large amounts of money for the goods; however, he turned them down saying he was prepared only to give the goods to the One from whom he would receive the greatest reward. Uthman gave all the goods to the starving people of Madinah and did not charge them. He knew that God would reward him with something far greater than money.

Even in the direst of circumstances, person who is a true believer in Almighty God is able to be generous.

The people came to the Prophet Muhammad and asked, “If someone has nothing to give, what will he do?” He said, “He should work with his hands and benefit himself and also give in charity (from what he earns).” The people further asked, “If he cannot find even that?” He replied, “He should help the needy who appeal for help.” Then the people asked, “If he cannot do that?” He replied, “Then he should perform good deeds and keep away from evil deeds and this will be regarded as charitable deeds.” (Saheeh Al-Bukhari)

And God says in the Quran that He will repay the generosity of a believer.

“And whatever you spend in good, it will be repaid to you in full, and you shall not be wronged.” (Quran 2:272)

God is the One who provides for us and He expects us to share generously. We are encouraged to be benevolent and unselfish with our possessions, with our time and with our exemplary behaviour towards others.

The Glorious Night Journey & Ascension Of Prophet Muhammed(pbuh)



سُبْحَانَ الَّذِي أَسْرَى بِعَبْدِهِ لَيْلاً مِنَ الْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ إِلَى الْمَسْجِدِ الأَقْصَى الَّذِي بَارَكْنَا حَوْلَهُ
Blessed is the One who took His Servant during part of the night on a journey from Masjid Al-Haram to Masjid Al-Aqsa, whose precincts we did bless [TMQ 17:1]

We are in the later days of the month of Rajab, the anniversary of the Isra and Mi'raj will be in the coming days. Muslims around the world will think about the amazing incident that took place in the life of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (saw).

Usually when people in the subcontinent talk about Shab-e-miraj, they see it as a day to make extra prayers or fast, even though there is no text from the Quran and sunnah to support this.

We as Muslims must realise that we must never allow this incident of al-Isra to remain as a mere fantastical story separated from our lives, like the Christians and Jews who took their scriptures as stories and detached them from life. We cannot leave Islam on the shelf and on the pages of books. Rather we must as with the rest of Islam connect this incident to our lives.

Isr'a literally means a journey by night and Mi'raj literally means an elevator or a ladder, i.e., an instrument which lifts something up. But, In Islam, Isra' refers to a miraculous night-journey made by the last Prophet (saw) from makkah to Jerusalem, and Mi'raj refers to the vehicle which took the Prophet (saw) from Jerusalem, up to and out of the universe, through the seven heavens.As for its exact date, there is difference of opinion amongst the scholars regarding it. However, the majority of jurists are in favor of a date between 16-12 months prior to migration to Madinah.

There are many details regarding Isra & Miraj, however will only focus on some important lessons that we can draw from this great event.



Glorified be He who took his servant for a journey by night from the Masjid Al-Haram to the Masjid Al-Aqsa,the surroundings we have blessed, in order to show him some of Our signs. Indeed , He is the all-Hearing,the all-Seeing.(Surah Al-Isra [17], Ayah 1 )

This verse talks about the most remarkable miracles of Muhammad , the night journey
(Isra). This journey had two phases: The horizontal from the Kaabah in Makkah, to the
historic masjid in Jerusalem. The second was the vertical phase from Al-Aqsa to the divine
throne. The purpose of this journey we are told was to show him Our signs.

The hadith literarture gives graphic details of this momentous journey. The verse begins with one of the Divine attributes, Subhaan, then Glorified. Let us look at the significance of this:

The diameter of the universe according to the astronomers is 3 billion light years, an
incredible distance unimaginable, to the human intellect. The question is how could such a
fantastic distance be covered in such a short period of night? We need not search any
further, since the Glorious Quran tells us it was Subhaan who took His servant from the
sacred mosque to the furthest mosque. The Divine name Subhaan 'the one who is flawless
without defect or weakness, the Glorified, The Quran claims the One took His servant on
this miraculous journey is the one who is free from every kind of weakness.

The Lord of the universe, Who can create from nothing by the mere command of kun (Be) and fa-yakun (it becomes), by using the divine epithet Subhaan, the clouds of doubt vanish in the air ! Hence the denial of the Miraj is not the denial of the miraculous journey, but the power of Allah.



The Dome of the rock http://amideastchangeofcourse.org/Dom...,_tb042403.jpg is the oldest Muslim building which has survived basically intact in its original form.

It was built by the Caliph Abd al-Malik and completed in 691 CE. The building encloses a huge rock located at its center, from which, according to tradition, the Prophet Muhammad ascended to heaven at the end of his Night Journey. In the Jewish tradition this is the Foundation Stone, the symbolic foundation upon which the world was created, and the place of the Binding of Isaac.

The Caliph Omar is said to have cleared the waste which had accumulated on the rock during the Byzantine period. The structure is octagonal and the dome is borne by a double system of pillars and columns. The walls, ceiling, arches, and vaults are decorated with floral images. The dome, on the inside, is covered with colored and gilded stucco. Abd al-Malik marked the end of the construction with a dedicatory inscription (still visible) which reads:

"This dome was built by the servant of God Abd al-Malik Ibn Marwan, emir of the faithful, in the year seventy-two" (Hejira 72 in the Muslim calendar is691/692 CE). Under the Abassid ruler, Caliph al-Mamun (r. 813-833), repairs were carried out, and the caliph also seized the occasion to replace the tiles bearing al-Malik's name with others bearing his own name as the building's founder.

The term the "farthest mosque" is considered in Islamic tradition as the general name for the precinct of al-Haram al-Sharif ("The Noble Sacred Enclosure") in Jerusalem, as well as the specific name for the congregational mosque located at its southern edge.

The contemporary congregational mosque of al-Aqsa is a result of different stages of construction and renovations. It is usually agreed upon that Abd al-Malik, the Umayyad Caliph who was the patron of the Dome of the Rock, started the construction of al-Aqsa Mosque at the end of the 7th century. A major building phase took place during the time of the Caliphate of his son, Abd al-Malik (709-715 AD). The building suffered from several major earthquakes and was renovated and reconstructed during the Abbasid period by Caliph al-Mahdi (775-785) and possibly by Caliph al-Mansur (743-75).

A further reconstruction was executed during the Fatimid period, in the 11th century. During the
Crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem the mosque was considered as Templum Salomonis (the royal palace of Solomon) and it served as the palace of the Kings of Jerusalem and later as the dwelling place of the Knights Templars. At the same time the Dome of the Rock was regarded as the Templum Domini (The Temple of the Lord). Moreover, several major restorations are known to have taken place during the 14th and 20th century.

The mosque consists today of a seven bay hypostyle hall with several additional small halls to the west and east of the southern section of the building. Unlike most hypostylestyle mosques the building does not have a clearly delineated courtyard unless one considers the whole Haram as its court. It is capped with a silver dome, made of lead sheets, which together with the golden dome of the Dome of the Rock, formulate the icon of the Haram in Jerusalem

SURAH AL KAHF (full) recited by Abdulrahman Al Sudais



Asalaam Alaykoum Wa RahmatouLlah Wa Barakatouh
All praise is due to the Lord of the world ALLAH (Subhana Llah Wa Taala)and peace and blessing is upon his Messenger Muhammad(S.A.W) his family and all his companions.

SURAH AL KAHF HAS 110 Aayah (verses)
This Surah was revealed in Mecca
Beautifully recitated by SHAIKH AbdulRahman Al Sudais.

===============

Imam Ahmad recorded that Al-Bara' said: "A man recited Al-Kahf and there was an animal in the house which began acting in a nervous manner. He looked, and saw a fog or cloud overhead. He mentioned this to the Prophet , who said:

«اقْرَأْ فُلَانُ، فَإِنَّهَا السَّكِينَةُ تَنْزِلُ عِنْدَ الْقُرْآنِ أَوْ تَنَزَّلَتْ لِلْقُرْآن»
(Keep on reciting so and so, for this is the tranquillity which descends when one reads Qur'an or because of reading Qur'an;) This was also recorded in the Two Sahihs. This man who recited it was Usayd bin Al-Hudayr, as we have previously mentioned in our Tafsir of Surat Al-Baqarah. Imam Ahmad recorded from Abu Ad-Darda' that the Prophet said:

«مَنْ حَفِظَ عَشْرَ آيَاتٍ مِنْ أَوَّلِ سُورَةِ الْكَهْفِ عُصِمَ مِنَ الدَّجَّال»
(Whoever memorizes ten Ayat from the beginning of Surat Al-Kahf will be protected from the Dajjal.) This was also recorded by Muslim, Abu Dawud, An-Nasa'i and At-Tirmidhi. According to the version recorded by At-Tirmidhi,

«مَنْ حَفِظَ ثَلَاثَ آيَاتٍ مِنْ أَوَّلِ الْكَهْف»
(Whoever memorizes three Ayat from the beginning of Al-Kahf.) He said, it is "Hasan Sahih. '' In his Mustadrak, Al-Hakim recorded from Abu Sa`id that the Prophet said:

«مَنْ قَرَأَ سُورَةَ الْكَهْفِ فِي يَوْمِ الْجُمُعَةِ أَضَاءَ لَهُ مِنَ النُّورِ مَا بَيْنَهُ وَبَيْنَ الْجُمُعَتَيْن»
(Whoever recites Surat Al-Kahf on Friday, it will illuminate him with light from one Friday to the next.) Then he said: "This Hadith has a Sahih chain, but they (Al-Bukhari and Muslim) did not record it.'' Al-Hafiz Abu Bakr Al-Bayhaqi also recorded it in his Sunan from Al-Hakim, then he narrated with his own chain that the Prophet said:

«مَنْ قَرَأَ سُورَةَ الْكَهْفِ كَمَا نَزَلَتْ، كَانَتْ لَهُ نُورًا يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَة»
(Whoever recites Surat Al-Kahf as it was revealed, it will be a light for him on the Day of Resurrection.)
