EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT PROPHET MUHAMMAD (PBUH)

2020.09.13 14:31 reverthelp EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT PROPHET MUHAMMAD (PBUH)

THE DIMENSIONS OF PROPHET MUHAMMAD’S (saw) PROPHETHOOD: His Mildness and Forbearance.Part 1
Mildness is another dimension of his character. He was a bright mirror in which God reflected His Mercy. Mildness is a reflection of compassion. God made His Messenger mild and gentle, thereby allowing him to gain many converts to Islam and overcome numerous obstacles.
After the victory of Badr, the Battle of Uhud was a severe trial for the young Muslim community. Although the Messenger wanted to fight on the outskirts of Madina, most Muslims desired to fight on an open battlefield. When the two armies met at the foot of Mount Uhud, the Messenger positioned 50 archers in ‘Aynayn pass and ordered them not to move without his permission, even if they saw that the Muslims had won a decisive victory.
The Muslim army, having only one-third of the men and equipment of the enemy, almost defeated the Makkan polytheists in the initial stage. Seeing the enemy fleeing, these archers forgot the Prophet’s command and left their post. Khalid ibn Walid, the Makkan cavalry’s commander, saw this and, riding around the mountain, attacked the Muslims from behind. The fleeing enemy soldiers turned back and caught the Muslims in a cross-fire. They began to lose, more than 70 were martyred, and the Messenger was wounded.
He might have reproached those who had urged him to pursue their desires as well as the archers who had abandoned their post, but he did not. Instead, he showed leniency:
It was by the mercy of God that you were gentle to them; if you had been harsh and hard of heart, they would have dispersed from about you. So pardon them and ask forgiveness for them and consult with them in the affair. And when you are resolved, then put your trust in God; surely God loves those who put their trust (in Him) (3:159).
This verse shows two prerequisites for leadership: mildness and leniency toward those who make well-intentioned mistakes, and the importance of consultation in public administration.
While most people disobey Him by indulging in unbelief, by explicitly or implicitly associating partners with Him, or transgressing His Commandments, the sun continues to send them its heat and light, clouds full of rain come to their aid, and the soil never stops feeding them with its fruits and plants. God’s Clemency and Forgiveness are reflected through Messenger’s compassion, mildness, and forgiveness.
Like Abraham, whom he used to say that he resembled, The Messenger was mild, imploring, clement, and penitent (11:75), as well as gentle to believers and full of pity and compassion for them (9:128). Abraham was never angry with people, regardless of how much they tormented him. He wished good even for his enemies, and implored God and shed tears in His Presence. Since he was a man of peace and salvation, God made the fire into which he was thrown cool and safe (21:69).
Like him, the Messenger was never angry with anybody because of what they did to him. When his wife ‘A’isha was slandered, he did not consider punishing the slanderers even after she was cleared by the Qur’an. Bedouins often behaved impolitely with him, but he did not even frown at them. Although extremely sensitive, he always showed forbearance toward both friend and foe.
For example, while he was distributing the spoils of war after the Battle of Hunayn, Dhu al-Huwaysira objected: “Be just, O Muhammad.” This was an unforgivable insult, for the Prophet had been sent to establish justice. Unable to endure such offences, ‘Umar demanded permission to kill “that hypocrite” on the spot. But the Messenger only replied: “Who else will show justice if I am not just? If I don’t show justice, then I am lost and brought to naught.” According to another possible meaning of this expression, he said: “If I am not just, then, by following me, you people have been lost and brought to naught.” In addition, he implied that this man would later take part in a seditious movement. This came true during the caliphate of ‘Ali: Dhu al-Huwaysira was found dead among the Kharijites after the Battle of Nahrawan.
Anas ibn Malik related that a Jewess offered a roasted sheep to the Messenger after the conquest of Khaybar. Just before he took the first bite, he stopped and told the others not to eat, saying: “This sheep tells me it has been poisoned.” Nevertheless, a Companion named Bishr died immediately after his first bite (taken before the Messenger had spoken). The Messenger sent for the woman and asked her why she had poisoned the meat. She replied: “If you’re really a Prophet, the poison won’t affect you. If you’re not, I wanted to save people from your evil.” The Messenger forgave her for her conspiracy to kill him. According to some reports, however, Bishr’s relatives demanded that she be punished, and she subsequently was.
Once when the Prophet was going home after talking to his Companions in the mosque, a bedouin pulled him by the collar and said rudely: “O Muhammad! Give me my due! Load up my two camels! For you will load them up with neither your own wealth nor that of your father!” Without showing any sign of being offended, he told others: “Give him what he wants.”
Zayd ibn San’an narrates:
Before I embraced Islam, the Messenger borrowed some money from me. I went to him to collect my debt before its due time, and insulted him: “O you children of ‘Abd al-Muttalib, you are very reluctant to pay your debts!” ‘Umar became very angry with me and shouted: “O enemy of God! Were it not for the treaty between us and the Jewish community, I would cut off your head! Speak to the Messenger politely!” However, the Messenger smiled at me and, turning to ‘Umar, said: “Pay him, and add 20 gallons to it, because you frightened him.”

2020.09.05 04:42 i_llama123 Leaving Ahmadiyyat: Islam and Secularism

In the last part, I wrote about my involvement with Jama’at Ahmadiyyat Islah Pasand (JAIP) and how it led me out of Ahmadiyyat as a whole. There will be a breakdown of chronology here, but I hope that the story will still make sense. I just wanted to tie up a few loose ends here. I have adopted the Ahmadi Referencing when quoting the Qur’an though I may have accidentally lapsed this rule at some points.

Flirting with Atheism:

When I was 16 years old, I watched a debate segment with Stephen Fry arguing that the Catholic church is not a force for good. I found this very weird. I had never seen anyone debate against a religion. I had thought that religion is the source of all the morality and good in the world. Sure, I had problems with Christianity but that was just the equivocation of the Messiah as God. Anyways, I love Stephen Fry, so it was interesting to see him in this setting as well.
I think the next video was another segment from the same debate with Christopher Hitchens. Wow, I was really impressed by this guy. I didn’t think that I had heard more solid arguments for anything… ever. I thoroughly enjoyed his outstanding verbal take downs (Hitchslaps) against everyone… literally everyone. Even dear, old Mother Theresa when he said, “she wasn’t a friend to the poor, she was a friend to poverty”. Gosh how dare he? I watched his documentary, Hell’s Angel, on this and learned that she had endorsed the totalitarian Duvalier regime which was the source of so much suffering for the Haitian people. I tried to look for a book of his to read for inspiration. Letters to a Young Contrarian did the job for me. It was most influential to the particular writing style that I try always to emulate. But the book that I really wanted to read was God is not Great: How religion poisons everything. Now I could never own this book and seriously have been accepted as a son of my father. So, I opted instead to listen to the audio book version while I would study. I related so much to the arguments in this book. Now, I have had an interest in science from my early childhood, so the following quote in particular stood out to me:
However, there came a day when poor, dear Mrs Watts overreached herself. Seeking ambitiously to fuse her two roles as nature instructor and Bible teacher, she said, “so, you see children, how powerful and generous God is. He’s made all the tree and grass to be green, which is exactly the colour that is most restful to our eyes. Imagine if instead the vegetation was all purple or orange. How awful that would be.”
I carried on reading and learning, and I realised that poor, dear Mrs Watts was a victim to a most heinous teleological fallacy. Though I continued to read the works of Hitchens, I never went out of my way to argue or debate any of this. But I did always play the devil’s advocate whenever a discussion about theology arose, though I didn’t want anyone to know my religious doubts. I had essentially compartmentalised my beliefs. I was agnostic on my own, but an Ahmadi at a Jama’at event or with family. This was not to deceive any person. It was just embarrassing as a teen to admit that I had doubts. At this point, I more so had doubts about the existence of God than I did about any specific religion. Why is it that we attribute all that is good in the world to God and all that is bad to humans? No matter how bad a person can be: Is eternal or extensive torture in the Fires of Hell ever a necessary punishment? The closest worldly example that I can think of as being God-like is one’s mother. A mother’s love knows no bound, and it is said that Allah’s love for humanity is leagues greater than that. So, would not Allah also be forgiving like a mother? Or would your mother whip you for the rest of your life for spilling milk on the floor?

The Ramadhan:

I had so many questions that had to be answered. So, during Ramadhan two years ago I decided to read the Qur’an in the order of revelation (same year as the JAIP Jalsa). I did this because I wanted to know what it was like for the Holy Prophet to receive his revelations at the time. I would also consult other sources like Hadith and Tafsir.
When I read the Qur’an, I had this overwhelming sense of peace in my heart. It was really humbling to read Allah speaking about how he created man from a drop of blood and the way he would deal with the likes of those who would doubt Muhammad’s gift. Following the journey of Muhammad’s life created this bond in me. I started to love Islam and saw it deeper than what I had previously appreciated it to be. For how could a religion that claims لاَ إِكْرَاهَ فِي ٱلدِّينِ, be one of violence. Many people that I grew up with used this verse to justify not having to pray congregational salat however I think that misses the point. I would recommend that you read the Qur’an in this way. At some point, I came across the Verse of Hijab (33:54) which should really be called the “Verse of not randomly showing up to my house”:
O ye who believe, do not enter the houses of the Prophet except when you are permitted for a meal, without awaiting its readiness. But when you are invited, then enter; and when you have eaten, disperse without seeking to remain for conversation. Indeed, that [behavior] was troubling the Prophet, and he is shy of [dismissing] you. But Allah is not shy of the truth. And when you ask [his wives] for something, ask them from behind a partition. That is purer for your hearts and their hearts. And it is not [conceivable or lawful] for you to harm the Messenger of Allah or to marry his wives after him, ever. Indeed, that would be in the sight of Allah an enormity.
To be brutally honest, I thought that I had misunderstood what this said. It sounded like some kind of a joke, and yet there it was. So, I thought about it… and if the Qur’an is the Eternal Law of the Universe uncreated by Allah then why the fff… is this here? Like did the Holy Prophet have a dinner party and some of his buddies came too early and stayed too late? Oh, and his buddies were speaking with his wives and he wasn’t having any of it, so he told them to cover up? It just got weirder the more I thought about it. I consulted Tafseer-e-Kabir for elucidation of this passage but there was an interpretation which was still unsatisfying. I discussed it with a well-read Murabbi cousin, and he explained that it “is about not randomly showing up to someone’s house unannounced” as explained in Tafsir-e-Kabir. I am not one to throw away the wisdom one can squeeze out of this verse, but it’s talking about not coming to the houses of the Prophet, not common manners between two people. Tafseer Ibn Kathir backs my viewpoint up with references to the Ahadith. Bukhari recorded that:
Anas bin Malik, may Allah be pleased with him, said:
"When the Messenger of Allah married Zaynab bint Jahsh, he invited the people to eat, then they sat talking. When he (the Prophet) wanted to get up, they did not get up. When he saw that, he got up anyway, and some of them got up, but three people remained sitting. The Prophet wanted to go in, but these people were sitting, then they got up and went away. I came and told the Prophet that they had left, then he came and entered. I wanted to follow him, but he put the screen between me and him. [then the verse above was revealed].
The Tafsir continues with,
“the believers were prohibited from entering the houses of the Messenger of Allah without permission, as they used to (…) at the beginning of Islam, until Allah showed His jealousy over this Ummah and commanded them to seek permission. This is a sign of His honoring this Ummah.”
Jealousy? That still confuses me to this day. It is apparent that this verse is talking specifically about the houses of the Prophet and the Qur’an means exactly what it says. The above traditions agree with this line of logic. But this wasn’t really faith-destroying stuff… I could live with this. However, it very quickly became apparent that Umar had a lot of influence over what commandments went into the Qur’an. Umar himself says:
“My viewpoint coincided with my Lord on three things… I said:
  1. O Messenger of Allah, why don’t you take Maqam Ibrahim as a place of prayer and so verse (2:126) was revealed which established Maqam Ibrahim as a place of worship.
  2. O Messenger of Allah, both righteous and immoral people enter upon your wives, so why don’t you veil them and so verse (66:6) was revealed which says the Holy Prophet could divorce his wives if they don’t veil themselves and Allah would give him wives better than them
  3. O Messenger of Allah, both righteous and immoral people enter upon you, so why not instruct the Mothers of the believers to observe Hijab'. Then Allah revealed the Ayah of Hijab."
(Umar also had some influence over the prohibition of alcohol). So, is Umar just so pious that he knew what Allah would do next? Or was he sitting on the shoulders of the Prophet and influencing his thoughts? Occam’s Razor you know? As I kept reading, the verses became more and more violent. For instance, it is said in Surah al-Maidah “whoever kills a soul, it is as if he had slain mankind entirely” which sounds sweet at the face of it, but the entire verse and its successor are as follows:
Because of that, We decreed upon the Children of Israel that whoever kills a soul (…) – it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one – it is as if he had saved the whole of mankind. And our messengers had certainly come to them with clear proofs. Then indeed many of them, throughout the land, were transgressors (33). Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and spread corruption in the land is that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment (34)
Oh?... That doesn’t sound very peaceful. This was more problematic as this is a clear instruction from Allah and the Holy Prophet to punish people who “spread corruption in the land”. Okay well maybe this is talking about self-defence, for who wants to have corruption fill the land and not stop it… only stooges turn the other cheek. I guess if I don’t like this, I can just ignore this right? But wait… “spreading corruption” is such a vague infraction of the Law. At the time (and still), I thought that homosexuals should be allowed to openly express their love. But, would Allah seriously consider that to be corruption worthy of such a disgusting and inhumane worldly punishment? And on top of that, eternal baking in Hellfire?

Dealings with my Feelings:

Eventually, as Ramadhan ended and my Qur’an completed, I forgot about my doubts. University started again and I powered through late night study sessions with my buddies at the library. 10 cups of coffee… chalk on my sleeves… quantum theory on the blackboard... I was loving it. But over time I was seeing myself fall deeper into an abyss of depression due to various pressures. When my final year started (October 2019), thoughts of my brother’s death (2010) started to manifest into my mind and dreams. To be honest, thinking about it and accepting it was a healthier way of dealing with his loss than 9 years of repression. I then continued to read the Qur’an and one day I found myself reading Surah al-Fatihah. I read it again. And again. I just kept reading it. Those words haunted me. How can Allah guide me on the right path if this Book is filled with so much hatred for some of his own Creation? How can I implore the Lord to help me if his Book has filled me with doubts about his Messenger? All of a sudden… this catharsis lifted my fixation with religion. I stopped feeling so guilty about my doubts and asked myself that if there is a God, does He really want to micromanage every day of my life with ritual prayers and devotional poems about how awesome He is? I imagined myself on the Last Day and thought that if I am a mere fraction of Allah’s infinite power and I have the ability to critically reason, then surely Allah is infinite in his reasoning and will realise that I just could not accept his Messengers and how they seemed more like con-artists and usurpers of power than pious and infallible. If not, then so be it I will accept the punishment from my Lord as it suited Him. Sorry Pascal, it’s just not worth it. As I have gone along, I have ticked off more items on my list of issues; Religion is the last of which… and I’m still here.

Return from the Jalsa and the Khilafat:

After my Family and I returned from the JAIP Jalsa, there was a wedding coming up in the family and we weren’t sure how the rest of the family would take it. It seemed that nobody had noticed… A few months later, a high-ranking Ahmadi scholar came to my house (under the guise for a cuppa and pakore) with my Uncle to speak with my Dad. They debated for hours. One highlight I remember Dad telling me about was this… The scholar asked, “Where does it say in the books of Hadrat Masih Maud that there will be Khilafat after his death?”, my Uncle goes, “It says it in Barahin-e-Ahmadiyya somewhere”, Dad said, “It doesn’t say it anywhere in his writings”. The scholar said, “Yes, you are right! But there are isharey (signs or clues) and so we have to follow them.” Which of course is a futile argument in and of itself. If Mirza Ghulam Ahmad wanted something this imperative done, why didn’t he just say it in one of his 91 books? For example, in al-Wasiyyat, he wanted the Bahishti-Maqbarah to be set up so that pious members of his sect can be buried there. If he really wanted there to be a system of Khilafat after him, wouldn’t he have set it up himself instead of setting up the Anjuman? Why are isharey all it takes in this case? My Uncle and Aunt (Mum’s brother and his wife) were also asked to formally apologies for attending the Jalsa. In the end, my parents disagree with the doctrines of the Jama’at, however, we differ in our opinions about the status of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad.
Shortly thereafter, our small village was visited by none other than Ataul Mujeeb Rashed (Imam of the London Mosque) [btw this isn’t gaslighting as he is a public figure] for a Q and A session. The Imam told a story of a newly graduated Ahmadi Doctor from Pakistan who had recently moved to the UK. And he of course was having a hard time finding a job. So, he wrote dozens of letters to Huzoor but didn’t get any replies. After a while, he eventually got the job and was ecstatic. Then he said that even though Huzoor does not reply to your letters, he still prays for your success. Orrrr… maybe this highly qualified, talented guy never gave up hope and was bound to eventually get hired. Occam’s Razor you know? Another faith-inspiring story was about a guy who wasn’t sure if he would go to heaven but oh wait, he did so it’s all calm. The End.
Anyways, life continued. I went back to university and I watched this documentary by MTA called Four Days without a Shepherd and uff… talk about solipsism. (I know it is about the aftermath of the death of Khalifa Rabay and this is not to make light of this tragic loss. I have said before that I have utmost respect for him and consider him to be an extremely learned scholar of Islam and knowledgeable on worldly matters). This documentary destroyed the idea of Khilafat for me. The bit about how they elected KMV and how their “hands flew by themselves without thinking” (from Allah of course) [time 36:12-36:37] made me want to facepalm so hard. The entire narrative is like that of a western when the hero returns to the town and the on-lookers whisper in joy about the legendary hero. The guy in the keffiyeh (Odeh Sb) seems to get very excited and literally says that when he saw Masroor for the first time, he could see nur radiating from his face and thought “this is the Khalifa!” [time 33:15-36:12] This “legendisation” and deification is very frustrating and cringy to watch because it is so obviously a propaganda video. And one can say that it is simply in my mind, but it is implanting in the mind of the lay-Ahmadi that we should view the Khalifa as a semi-prophetic person. Oh, and surprise, the Khalifa is elected and they’re always Mirza [\inset_paki_name_here] Ahmad (before y’all get all butthurt I’m Pakistani). Wait… I just had an idea… Python script to see if you are eligible for Khilafat:
name = input("please enter your full name: ")
if "Mirza" and "Ahmad" in name:
print("Your name is Hadhrat " + name + " Khalifatul Masih the VI") 
else:
print("sorry you can't be the Khalifa") 
This is how the Khalifa is chosen. This is hereditary successorship rather than the Khilafat described in Surah al-Nur. Wherein Allah says that he will raise a Khalifa from the “good people”. I think that this verse has more to do with Mujaddids than Khalifatul Masih. I think my thoughts about Khilafat and Ahmadiyyat contributed to my following thoughts. That spirituality is not the same as religion and blind faith. All organised religion (yes even Ahmadiyyat) has a monopoly over spirituality or mindfulness and has turned it into prayer or singing hymns about Jesus or international Bai’at. If you have any DMT handy, watch this MKUltra-esque brainwashing video. Warning: you will probably see weird swirls after the fact.

The Future:

Now that I have freed myself from the shackles of Ahmadiyyat, I plan to move forward with my life and continue further study in my field of physics. I have this dream of seeing more Pakistanis (like myself) in Physics and I want to be a role model to the next generation. The biggest problem that I had with my field of choice was the lack of representation from people like me. Sure, there’s Abdus Salam but he was just one person and, on another level, the like of which we will probably never see again. But if I let this slide, then the next generation will have the same problem and the next and so on. I have also recently started to pick up some of the hobbies that I used to enjoy which I replaced with all this religion business such as the guitar, my artwork and so on.
There was this girl who was my chemistry partner at school and I had feelings for her. After school finished, she told me that she also had feelings for me, but I had to say no because I was Ahmadi and she was a Muslim. After I left Ahmadiyyat, I reconnected with her. We started to see each other more (and getting caught :) ). The most fun we had was when we would meet at University. There’s honestly something really beautiful and humbling about staring into the stars with someone you love. I look forward to a future with her where I can lead an authentic life and be myself. Mushy love story aside, I think it’s important to mention this because there’s a stigma in our community about love and relationships and it sometimes manifests itself in bad marriages (though some of you might argue from personal anecdotes that this wasn’t true for you, it is for 90% of us). And there are so many Ahmadi teens that I know that have had to abandon their dreams just because of the “log kya kahenge” mentality. Rest assured, I spoke with my parents about my feelings for her and they have finally accepted that there is nothing wrong with marrying outside of Ahmadiyyat. And I was the type of person who would do everything by the book to please my parents and extended family so if I can overcome this stigma, then so can you. So, I plan also to marry this girl soon and start a life of love with her. Soon. I am taking my life one day at a time and enjoying all that I come across.

Final Thoughts:

“I wish none of this had happened” …
“So, do all who live to see such times. But it is not for them to decide. All you have to decide is what to do with the time that has been given to you”.
I mentioned in this post that I went through a phase of depression and some personal issues. Though I wholeheartedly invite debate in the comments, I would respectfully request that mental health not be used to leverage any arguments against me (I am completely sane of mind at the time of writing this; contrary to what some may believe). There is a certain level of decorum that I ask for in debate and if you are polite, then I will be likewise. And for the record… I am still banned from ahmadiyya and my question about the passages in EGKI and Barahin V remains unanswered and will probably be demoted to the status of an online fossil soon enough. I hope you enjoyed reading this final part of my journey out of religion. I hope that whatever path you choose in the future is authentic and through your own volition and not to impress any person in your life.
Peace be upon you and thanks for reading.

2020.09.04 23:49 QuranAloneMuslim Origins of the Sunni shahada

Though the two statements of the Shahada are both present in the Quran (for example, 37:35 and 48:29), they are not found there side by side as in the Shahada formula.[13]
Shouldnt one ponder on this fact?
Versions of both phrases began to appear in coins and monumental architecture in the late seventh century, which suggests that it had not been officially established as a ritual statement of faith until then.[13]
Interesting
An inscription in the Dome of the Rock (est. 692) in Jerusalem reads: "There is no god but God alone; He has no partner with him; Muhammad is the messenger of God".[13] Another variant appears in coins minted after the reign of Abd al-Malik ibn Marwan, the fifth Umayyad caliph: "Muhammad is the servant of God and His messenger".[13]
So this was implemented as a pillar of faith and side-by-side testimony by the Ummayads.
Although it is not clear when the Shahada first came into common use among Muslims, it is clear that the sentiments it expresses were part of the Quran and Islamic doctrine from the earliest period.[13]
In other words, they know it wasn't an original practice but invented later and are now looking for an excuse.

2020.08.05 12:16 reverthelp EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT PROPHET MUHAMMAD (PBUH)

PROPHET MUHAMMAD (pbuh) AS COMMANDER: The Prophet of Universal Mercy.Part3
Although God’s Messenger was of the opinion that they should face the enemy on the outskirts of Madina, the majority of the Muslim army urged him to go out into the open for a pitched battle. When the two armies met each other at the foot of Mount Uhud, God’s Messenger positioned fifty archers in the pass of ‘Aynayn and ordered them not to leave their place without permission, even if they saw that the Muslims had won the victory decisively.
The Muslim army, one-third of the enemy in number and equipment, had almost defeated the Makkan polytheists at the beginning of the battle. Seeing the enemy fleeing the battlefield, the archers forgot the Prophet’s command and left their positions in pursuit of them. However, Khalid ibn Walid, the cavalry commander of the Makkan army, saw this and, riding around the mountain, attacked the Muslim army from behind. The fleeing enemy soldiers turned back, and as a result, the Muslims, caught in the cross-fire, experienced a reverse. More than seventy Muslims were martyred and God’s Messenger was wounded. He might have reproached those who urged him to come into the open for a pitched battle and the archers who left their place contrary to his orders. But he did the reverse and showed leniency to them. The Qur'an says:
It was by the mercy of God that you were gentle to them; if you had been harsh and hard of heart, they would have dispersed from about you. So pardon them and ask forgiveness for them and consult with them in the affair. And when you are resolved, then put your trust in God; surely God loves those who put their trust (in Him). (Al 'Imran, 3.159)
This verse shows, besides the need for leaders to be mild and lenient to those who make well-intentioned mistakes, the importance which Islam attaches to consultation in public administration.
The mildness and forgiveness of God’s Messenger was a reflection of God’s Names, the All-Mild, the All-Clement and the All-Forgiving. God does not stop providing for people despite their rebellion or unbelief. While the vast majority of people disobey Him either in unbelief and explicit or implicit association of partners with Him or transgression of His Commandments, the sun continues to send them its heat and light, clouds come to their aid with their tears - rain - and the earth never stops feeding them with its various fruits and plants. This is because of the Clemency and Forgiveness of God Almighty, which God’s Messenger, upon him be peace and blessings, reflected through his compassion, mildness and forgiveness.
Like the Prophet Abraham, whom he used to say that he resembled, God’s Messenger was mild, imploring, clement and penitent (Hud, 11.75), and also gentle to believers and full of pity and compassionate for them (al-Tawbah, 9.127). Abraham, upon him, be peace, was never angry with people, however much they tormented him. He wished for good even for his enemies. He implored God and shed tears in His Presence. Since he was a man of peace and salvation, God made the fire into which he was thrown cool and safe for him (al-Anbiya’, 21.69). Like him, God’s Messenger, upon him be peace, was never angry with anybody because of what was done to him. When his wife 'A'isha, may God be pleased with her, was made the object of slander, he did not think to punish the slanderers even after 'A'isha was cleared by the Qur'an. Bedouins often came to his presence and behaved impolitely, but he did not even frown at them. Although extremely sensitive, he always showed forbearance towards everybody, whether friend or foe. His sensitivity was such that if, for example, a needle pierced his finger, it would give him more pain than others feel when speared. Despite this, he tolerated all the impudence of people.
As recounted earlier, he shared out the spoils of war after the Battle of Hunayn, when a man named Dhu l-Huwaysira objected, saying: 'Be just, o Muhammad!’ This was an unforgivable offence against the sacred character of a Prophet whose role was to establish justice in the world. Unable to endure such offences against God’s Messenger, upon him be peace and blessings, 'Umar reacted: 'Let me kill this hypocrite, o God’s Messenger!’ But the Messenger did nothing other than saying:
Who else will show justice if I am not just? If I do not show justice, then I have been lost and brought to naught. ( Muslim, Zakat, 142, 148; Bukhari, Adab, 95, Manaqib, 25 )
According to another version, he said:
If I am not just, then, by following me, you - the people - have been lost and brought to naught. ( Bukhari, Adab, 95; Muslim, Zakat, 142. )
In addition, he implied that that man would later take part in a seditious movement, which came true during the Caliphate of 'Ali. Dhu l-Huwaysira was found dead among the Kharijites killed in the Battle of Nahrawan.
As related by Anas ibn Malik, who served the Messenger for ten years, during which he was never reproached by him, a Jewish woman offered a roasted sheep to God’s Messenger after the conquest of Khaybar. Just before he took the first morsel to his mouth, God’s Messenger stopped and told the others at the meal not to eat of it, saying: This sheep tells me that it is poisonous. Nevertheless, a Companion, named Bishr, died immediately after he took the first morsel. The Messenger, upon him be peace and blessings, sent for the woman and questioned her on why she tried to poison him. The woman replied:
If you are really a Prophet, the poison will not affect you. If you are not, I wanted to save people from your evil.
God’s Messenger forgave the woman for her conspiracy to kill him. ( Bukhari, Hibah, 28; Abu Dawud, Diyat, 6. )
While the Prophet was once returning to his house after talking to his Companions in the mosque, a Bedouin pulled him by the collar and said rudely: 'O Muhammad! Give me my due! Load up these two camels of mine. For you will load them up with neither your own wealth nor the wealth of your father.’ To this impertinence, God’s Messenger gave the response, without showing any sign of offence:
Give that man what he wants! ( Abu Dawud, Adab, 1; Nasa'i, Qasamah, 24. )
Zayd ibn San'an narrates:
Once, God’s Messenger borrowed some money from me. I was not yet a Muslim then. I went to him to collect my debt before its due time, and insulted him, saying; 'You the children of 'Abd al-Muttalib, are very reluctant to pay your debts!’ 'Umar became very angry with this insult of mine and shouted; 'O enemy of God! Were it not for the treaty between us and the Jewish community, I would cut off your head! Speak to God’s Messenger politely!’
However, God’s Messenger smiled at me and, turning to 'Umar, said;
'Umar, pay the man his debt! And add to it the amount of twenty gallons because you have frightened him!
'Umar relates the rest of the story:
'We went together. On the way, Zayd spoke to me unexpectedly; O 'Umar! You got angry with me. But I have found in him all the features of the Last Prophet recorded in the Torah, the Old Testament. However, there is this verse in it: 'His mildness surpasses his anger. The severity of impudence to him increases him only in mildness and forbearance.’ In order to test his forbearance, I uttered what I uttered. Now I am convinced that he is the Prophet whose coming to the Torah predicted, so, I believe and bear witness that he is the Last Prophet. ( Suyuti, al-Khasa'is, 1.26; I. Hajar, al-Isabah, 1.566. )
The mildness and forbearance of God’s Messenger sufficed for the conversion of Zayd ibn San'an, who was one of the Jewish scholars of the time.

2020.05.11 23:54 Davidgogo Shahada (شَهِدَ ) of the Hypocrites

Yes. In fact all one need to do is declare submission to God as a first step. The real question is: How did the non-Quranic but popular Shahada found its way into Islam?
Below are the verses where the word (شَهِدَ ) is used in the context of testifying and in twelve out of thirteen it had nothing to do with the Shahada of the sectarians and in the thirteenth, this is what God has to say about it:
When the hypocrites come to you, [O Muhammad], they say, "We testify that you are the Messenger of Allah." And Allah knows that you are His Messenger, and Allah testifies that the hypocrites are liars. Quran 63:01
Here are the verses where it is used in context:
(4:15:11) shahidū they testify فَإِنْ شَهِدُوا فَأَمْسِكُوهُنَّ فِي الْبُيُوتِ حَتَّىٰ يَتَوَفَّاهُنَّ الْمَوْتُ
(6:19:20) latashhadūna testify أَئِنَّكُمْ لَتَشْهَدُونَ أَنَّ مَعَ اللَّهِ آلِهَةً أُخْرَىٰ قُلْ لَا أَشْهَدُ
(6:19:28) ashhadu (do) I testify أَئِنَّكُمْ لَتَشْهَدُونَ أَنَّ مَعَ اللَّهِ آلِهَةً أُخْرَىٰ قُلْ لَا أَشْهَدُ
(6:150:5) yashhadūna testify قُلْ هَلُمَّ شُهَدَاءَكُمُ الَّذِينَ يَشْهَدُونَ أَنَّ اللَّهَ حَرَّمَ هَٰذَا
(6:150:11) shahidū they testify فَإِنْ شَهِدُوا فَلَا تَشْهَدْ مَعَهُمْ
(6:150:13) tashhad testify فَإِنْ شَهِدُوا فَلَا تَشْهَدْ مَعَهُمْ
(7:37:32) washahidū and they (will) testify قَالُوا ضَلُّوا عَنَّا وَشَهِدُوا عَلَىٰ أَنْفُسِهِمْ أَنَّهُمْ كَانُوا كَافِرِينَ
(7:172:10) wa-ashhadahum and made them testify وَأَشْهَدَهُمْ عَلَىٰ أَنْفُسِهِمْ أَلَسْتُ بِرَبِّكُمْ قَالُوا بَلَىٰ
(12:81:10) shahid'nā we testify فَقُولُوا يَا أَبَانَا إِنَّ ابْنَكَ سَرَقَ وَمَا شَهِدْنَا إِلَّا بِمَا عَلِمْنَا
(41:20:5) shahida (will) testify حَتَّىٰ إِذَا مَا جَاءُوهَا شَهِدَ عَلَيْهِمْ سَمْعُهُمْ وَأَبْصَارُهُمْ وَجُلُودُهُمْ
(41:21:4) shahidttum you testify وَقَالُوا لِجُلُودِهِمْ لِمَ شَهِدْتُمْ عَلَيْنَا
(41:22:5) yashhada testify وَمَا كُنْتُمْ تَسْتَتِرُونَ أَنْ يَشْهَدَ عَلَيْكُمْ سَمْعُكُمْ وَلَا أَبْصَارُكُمْ
(63:1:5) nashhadu We testify إِذَا جَاءَكَ الْمُنَافِقُونَ قَالُوا نَشْهَدُ إِنَّكَ لَرَسُولُ اللَّهِ
Quran 7:158 is sometimes used by the sectarians to justify the Shahada of the hypocrites. The only problem is that the word (شَهِدَ ) is missing from the entire verse. In fact the word "say" (قُلْ) is used by God in order to make the issue even more clear to us. Furthermore, the actual Shahada is also present in the same verse and is once again distinctly repeated without the "and Mohammad is his messenger" to remove all doubts.
Please take note of what the Prophet was ordered to say and the believers were expected to repeat is the same. If the intention is to honor the Prophet of God then the only way to do so is to follow God's instructions.
Quran 2:136 (O Believers!) say, "We believe in Allah and the Revelation that has been conveyed to us, and in that which was revealed to Abraham, and Ishmael, and Isaac, and Jacob as well as their descendant Prophets (the tribal Israelite Prophets, known as the Patriarchs), and in that which was given to Moses and Jesus and to the other prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them (in that all of them were one in Purpose and they got their guidance from the One True God). And for Him, we are Muslims."
Quran 2:137 So, if they come to believe like you believe, then they are rightly guided. But if they turn away, then they are in schism and opposition and Allah will suffice you against them. For, He is the Hearer, the Knower.
If we fail to see anything wrong with singling out Prophet Mohammad while professing our Deen e Ibrahimi then there is very little one can add to the argument
Think.
Note 1; The total number of times the word from the root "shīn hā dāl" is used in different contexts is 160, mostly in terms of a witness(s)
Note 2: Please note some of the Ahadith where the Quranic Shahada is mentioned.
Sunan Abi Dawud » General Behavior (Kitab Al-Adab) Narrated AbuBarzah al-Aslami: When the Messenger of Allah (saws) intended to get up from the assembly he used to say in the last. Glory be to Thee. O Allah, and I begin with praise of Thee, I testify that there is no god but Thou; I ask Thy pardon, and return to Thee in repentance. The man asked: Messenger of Allah! you utter the words now which you did not do in the past? He replied: (This is an) atonement for what takes place in the assembly. حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ حَاتِمٍ الْجَرْجَرَائِيُّ، وَعُثْمَانُ بْنُ أَبِي شَيْبَةَ، - الْمَعْنَى - أَنَّ عَبْدَةَ بْنَ سُلَيْمَانَ، أَخْبَرَهُمْ عَنِ الْحَجَّاجِ بْنِ دِينَارٍ، عَنْ أَبِي هَاشِمٍ، عَنْ أَبِي الْعَالِيَةِ، عَنْ أَبِي بَرْزَةَ الأَسْلَمِيِّ، قَالَ كَانَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقُولُ بِأَخَرَةٍ إِذَا أَرَادَ أَنْ يَقُومَ مِنَ الْمَجْلِسِ ‏"‏ سُبْحَانَكَ اللَّهُمَّ وَبِحَمْدِكَ أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتُوبُ إِلَيْكَ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ فَقَالَ رَجُلٌ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ إِنَّكَ لَتَقُولُ قَوْلاً مَا كُنْتَ تَقُولُهُ فِيمَا مَضَى ‏.‏ قَالَ ‏"‏ كَفَّارَةٌ لِمَا يَكُونُ فِي الْمَجْلِسِ ‏"‏ ‏.‏
Sahih Muslim » The Book of Prayers (Kitab Al-Salat) Anas b. Malik reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) used to attack the enemy when it was dawn. He would listen to the Adhan; so if he heard an Adhan, he stopped, otherwise made an attack. Once on hearing a man say: Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest, the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) remarked: He is following al-Fitra (al-Islam). Then hearing him say: I testify that there is no god but Allah. there is no god but Allah, the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: You have come out of the Fire (of Hell). They looked at him and found that he was a goat herd. وَحَدَّثَنِي زُهَيْرُ بْنُ حَرْبٍ، حَدَّثَنَا يَحْيَى، - يَعْنِي ابْنَ سَعِيدٍ - عَنْ حَمَّادِ بْنِ سَلَمَةَ، حَدَّثَنَا ثَابِتٌ، عَنْ أَنَسِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ، قَالَ كَانَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يُغِيرُ إِذَا طَلَعَ الْفَجْرُ وَكَانَ يَسْتَمِعُ الأَذَانَ فَإِنْ سَمِعَ أَذَانًا أَمْسَكَ وَإِلاَّ أَغَارَ فَسَمِعَ رَجُلاً يَقُولُ اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ ‏.‏ فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏"‏ عَلَى الْفِطْرَةِ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ ثُمَّ قَالَ أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ ‏.‏ فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏"‏ خَرَجْتَ مِنَ النَّارِ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ فَنَظَرُوا فَإِذَا هُوَ رَاعِي مِعْزًى ‏.‏
Bulugh al-Maram » The Comprehensive Book Buraidah (RAA) narrated, ‘The Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H.) heard a man saying: ‘O Allah! I ask you by virtue that I testify that you are Allah; there is no God but You, the one —· the Self Sufficient Master, Who did not beget, and was not begotten, and to whom no one is equal.’ Allah’s Messenger (P.B.U.H.) then said, “He has asked Allah by His Name by which when asked, He gives, and by which when supplicated, He answers.” Related by the four Imams and Ibn Hibban graded it as Sahih. وَعَنْ بُرَيْدَةَ ‏- رضى الله عنه ‏- قَالَ: { سَمِعَ اَلنَّبِيُّ ‏- صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏-رَجُلاً يَقُولُ: اَللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ بِأَنِّي أَشْهَدُ أَنَّكَ أَنْتَ اَللَّهُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ, اَلْأَحَدُ اَلصَّمَدُ, اَلَّذِي لَمْ يَلِدْ, وَلَمْ يُولَدْ, وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ كُفُوًا أَحَدٌ.‏ فَقَالَ" لَقَدْ سَأَلَ اَللَّهُ بِاسْمِهِ اَلَّذِي إِذَا سُئِلَ بِهِ أَعْطَى, وَإِذَا دُعِيَ بِهِ أَجَابَ } أَخْرَجَهُ اَلْأَرْبَعَةُ, وَصَحَّحَهُ اِبْنُ حِبَّانَ .‏ (2024)‏ .‏
Al-Adab Al-Mufrad » Mornings and evenings Abu Hurayra reported that Abu Bakr said, "Messenger of Allah, teach me something that I can say morning and evening." The Prophet said, "O Allah, Knower of the Unseen and the Visible, Creator of the heavens and the earth, everything is in Your hands. I testify that there is no god but You. I seek refuge with You from the evil of myself and the evil of shaytan and his (encouragement to) associate others (with You)." Say it in the morning and the evening and when you go to sleep." حَدَّثَنَا سَعِيدُ بْنُ الرَّبِيعِ، قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنَا شُعْبَةُ، عَنْ يَعْلَى بْنِ عَطَاءٍ قَالَ‏:‏ سَمِعْتُ عَمْرَو بْنَ عَاصِمٍ قَالَ‏:‏ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا هُرَيْرَةَ يَقُولُ‏:‏ قَالَ أَبُو بَكْرٍ‏:‏ يَا رَسُولَ اللهِ، عَلِّمْنِي شَيْئًا أَقُولُهُ إِذَا أَصْبَحْتُ وَأَمْسَيْتُ، قَالَ‏:‏ قُلِ‏:‏ اللَّهُمَّ عَالِمَ الْغَيْبِ وَالشَّهَادَةِ، فَاطِرَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ، رَبَّ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَمَلِيكَهُ، أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ، أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ نَفْسِي، وَمِنْ شَرِّ الشَّيْطَانِ وَشِرْكِهِ، قُلْهُ إِذَا أَصْبَحْتَ وَإِذَا أَمْسَيْتَ، وَإِذَا أَخَذْتَ مَضْجَعَكَ‏.‏
Sunan Abi Dawud » General Behavior (Kitab Al-Adab) Narrated AbuHurayrah: AbuBakr as-Siddiq said: Messenger of Allah! command me something to say in the morning and in the evening. He said: Say "O Allah, Creator of the heavens and the earth, Who knowest the unseen and the seen, Lord and Possessor of everything. I testify that there is no god but Thee; I seek refuge in Thee from the evil within myself, from the evil of the devil, and his (incitement to) attributing partners (to Allah)." He said: Say this in the morning. حَدَّثَنَا مُسَدَّدٌ، حَدَّثَنَا هُشَيْمٌ، عَنْ يَعْلَى بْنِ عَطَاءٍ، عَنْ عَمْرِو بْنِ عَاصِمٍ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، أَنَّ أَبَا بَكْرٍ الصِّدِّيقَ، رضى الله عنه قَالَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ مُرْنِي بِكَلِمَاتٍ أَقُولُهُنَّ إِذَا أَصْبَحْتُ وَإِذَا أَمْسَيْتُ ‏.‏ قَالَ ‏"‏ قُلِ اللَّهُمَّ فَاطِرَ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ عَالِمَ الْغَيْبِ وَالشَّهَادَةِ رَبَّ كُلِّ شَىْءٍ وَمَلِيكَهُ أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ نَفْسِي وَشَرِّ الشَّيْطَانِ وَشِرْكِهِ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ قَالَ ‏"‏ قُلْهَا إِذَا أَصْبَحْتَ وَإِذَا أَمْسَيْتَ وَإِذَا أَخَذْتَ مَضْجَعَكَ ‏"‏ ‏.‏

2020.04.23 12:24 UltraInstinctBeerus Some good deeds you can do in Ramadan

1. Earn a thousand good deeds in Minutes

The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: "Is anyone of you incapable of earning one thousand Hasanah (rewards) a day?" Someone from the gathering asked, "How can anyone of us earn a thousand Hasanah?" The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: "Glorify Allah a hundred times by just saying “Subhanallah” and a Good deeds will be written for you, or a thousand sins will be wiped away.” [Muslim 4:2073]

2. One of the Rare Treasures of Paradise

Abu Dharr (Ra) narrated that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Should I not tell you of one treasure of the unlimited treasures of Paradise?” I replied spontaneously “Oh Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) that would be an honour indeed!”Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “That rare treasure is LAHAWLA WA LA QUWWATA ILLA BILLAH.” (“The strength to do good and to refrain from evil comes from the grace and mercy of Allah!”) - [Ibn Majah]

3. A Date Palm planted in Paradise for the one who Recites this

Jaa'bir [Ra] narrated that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)) said: “For the person who recites SUB-HAN'ALLAH HIL AZEEM WABI-HAM'DIHI, [Pure and perfect is Allah in his glory and praise], - A date palm will be planted for him in Paradise” [Tirmidhi]

4. Forgiveness for Sins Even Though they are like the Foam of the Sea:

Narrated Abu Huraira (Ra), The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, “Whoever says,‘Subhan Allaahi Wa bihamdihi, {Allah is free from imperfection and His is the praise}. One hundred times a day, will be forgiven all his sins even if they were as much as the foam of the sea. [Bukhari, Book #75, Hadith #414]

5. We Can Earn Over a BILLION Rewards in Just a Few Seconds!

Narrated ‘Ubaadah (Ra) that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, “Whoever seeks forgiveness for the believing men and believing women, Allah will write for him a good deed for each believing man and believing woman.” [Tabarrani]

6. That Which Shall Have no Equal on the Day of Resurrection:

Narrated Abu Huraira (Ra) that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, ”Whoever says one hundred times in a day:
“Laa ilaaha illallaah wahdahuu laa shareekalahu, lahu-l-mulk wa lahu-l-hamd wa huwa ‘alaa kulli shai’in qadeer,”
(“None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, the Alone Who has no partners, to Him belongs Dominion and to Him belong all the Praises, and He has power over all things (i.e. Omnipotent)”,}
he will get the same reward as given for manumitting ten slaves; and one hundred good deeds will be written in his accounts, and one hundred sins will be deducted from his accounts, and it (his saying) will be a shield for him from Satan on that day till night, and nobody will be able to do a better deed except the one who does more than he.” [Bukhari,Book #75, Hadith #412]

7. Four Phrases that are Heavier on the Scales than an Entire Morning of Dhikrullah (Remembrance of Allah):

The Mother of the Believers, Juwairiyah bint Al-Harith (Ra) reported that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) came out from my apartment in the morning as I was busy in performing the dawn prayer. He came back in the forenoon and found me sitting there. The Prophet (Sallallahu said, ”Are you still in the same position as I left you.” I replied in the affirmative. There upon the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, “I recited four phrases three times after I had left you.

When the Prophet (Sallallahu AlaihiWasallam) was informed of this, he said: “It (Surah Al-Fathiha) is “The Mother of the Qur’an” (Umm al-Qur’an) and is a cure for every disease.”
[This narration has been recorded by Ath-Thua’lbi from Abu Sulaiman, who narrated it from Muawiya bin Salih (RA), Tafseer Mazhari 1:31]

23.2. Surah Mulk which protects one from the Torment of the Grave

It was narrated that Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud (Ra) said: "Whoever reads Tabarakallahi Biyadihil Mulk [i.e. Surahal-Mulk] every night, Allah will protect him from the torment of the grave. At the time of the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) we used to call it Al-Mani’ah (that which protects). In the Book of Allah it is a Surah which, whoever recites it every night has done very well." [An-Nasa’i]

23.3. Surah Zilzalah worth half of the Qur’an

Abdullah Ibn ‘Abbas (Ra) and Anas Ibn Malik (Ra) reported that the Prophet(Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, ‘Who ever recited Surah Zilzilah(99) would get the reward of reciting half the Qur’an. Whoever recited Surah al Kaafirun(109) would get a reward as if reading a quarter of the Qur’an. Whoever recited Surah al Ikhlas(112) would get a reward as if reading one third of the Qur’an’. [At-Tirmidhi 2818/A]

23.4.1. Surah Iklhasworth a third of the Qur’an

Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (Ra) reported that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said to his Companions, “Are any of you unable to recite a third of the Qur’an in a night?” That was difficult for them and they said, “Which of us is able to do that, Messenger of Allah?” He said, “[The Surah]‘Say: He is Allah, Absolute Oneness, Allah, the Everlasting Sustainer of all’(112) constitutes a third of the Qur’an.’” [Sahih al-Bukhari 6:61 #534, Riyad as-Salihin by Imaman-Nawawi Ch.183 #1010]

23.4.2. Surah Iklhas recited 200 times daily gets forgiveness of 50 years of sin

Anas (Ra) reported the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) as saying, “If anyone recites two hundred times daily, Qul huwallahuahad the sins of fifty years will be wiped out, unless he is in debt.” [At-Tirmidhi and Darami]
The latter version has ‘fifty times’ and he did not mention ‘unless he is in debt’

23.5. Surah al Falaqand An Naas protection from Jinn and evil eye

The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) used to seek refuge from the jinn aswell as from the evil eye until Surahal Falaq and AnNaas were revealed. When they were sent down, he utilised them and left other things. [At-Tirmidhi #1984, Riyad as-Salihin by Imam an-NawawiCh.183 #1014]

23.5.1. Reciting Qur’an whilst in Qiyaam (Standing in prayer)

Abd-Allah ibn ‘Amr ibn al-‘Aas (Ra), narrated that the Prophet (SallallahuAlaihi Wasallam) said: "Whoever recites ten Aayaat (verses) in Qiyaam will not be recorded as one of the forgetful. Whoever recites a hundred Aayaat (verses) in Qiyaam will be recorded as one of the devout, and whoever prays a thousand Aayaat (verses) in Qiyaam will be recorded as one of the Muqantareen (those who pileup good deeds).” [Abu Dawood and Ibn Hibbaan. It is a Hasan report. Saheeh al-Targheeb, 635]

24. Good manners are the Heaviest on the good deed scales

Abu Darda (Ra) reported: The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, "Nothing will be heavier on the Day of Resurrection in the Scale of the believer than good manners. Allah hates one who utters foul or coarse language.''

25. Dhikr of Allah during business or whilst working

Dhikr of Allah at intervals while engaged in business is a source of great reward and merit. It is mentioned in Hadith that in a place where people are oblivious to Dhikr, remembrance of Allah is like being steadfast in jihad, when others are running away. [Targhib, p. 193, vol. 3 ref. Bazar and Tibrani]

25.1. We will regret the Seconds we wasted without remembering Allah

Hadhrat Mu'adh (Ra) narrated that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “The Inhabitants of Paradise will not be grief stricken or sorrowful about anything they did in the life of the world except for the time they spent without being in the remembrance of Allah” [Tabaraani]

26. Do Dhikr of Allah even if its on Comfortable beds

Abu Saeed Khudri (Ra) narrates that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “There are many people reclining on comfortable beds and making the Dhikr of Allah on earth. Allah will grant them elevated ranks (in the Akhirah).” [Ibn Habbaan]
Those indulging in luxury should not abstain from Dhikrullah. They too should be constantly engaged in the remembrance of Allah whilst enjoying the comforts of the bounties which whilst enjoying the comforts of the bounties which Allah has bestowed on them and Allah will give them elevated ranks in the hereafter.

26.1. Do so much Dhikrthat people think you're mad

Abu Saeed Khurdi (Ra) also narrates that the Prophet (Sallallahu AlaihiWasallam) said: “Engage in the Dhikr of Allah in such abundance that people comment that ‘you are insane’.” [Ahmed, Abu Ya’la, Ibn Habbaan]

26.2. Remember Allah in the places where people don’t usually remember Allah

It is mentioned in Hadith that in a place where people are oblivious to Dhikr, remembrance of Allah is like being steadfast in Jihad, when others are running away. [Targhib, p. 193, vol. 3 ref. Bazar and Tibrani]

27. Always thank Allah for everything

A’ishah (Ra) said, I asked, “Messenger of Allah, why do you exert yourself so much while all your sins have been forgiven?” To this he replied, “`A’ishah (Ra), should I not be a grateful servant of Allah?” [Muslim]
Anas bin Malik (Ra) reported that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, “Allah is pleased with His slave who says: `Al-hamdu lillah(praise be to Allah)’ when he takes a morsel of food and drinks a draught of water.” [Muslim]

28. Praising Allah upon Sneezing and its Response

Abu Hurairah (Ra) has related a Prophetic saying: "Allah likes sneezing and dislikes yawning. When anyone of you sneezes he should say “Alhamdulillah” and the hearer thereof should respond “Yarhamakullah” as it is a right of the one who sneezes." [Sahih Bukhari].

29. Allah will increase us the more thankful we are to him

-Allah likes those who are thankful [Qur'an, 39:7]
-Allah rewards those who are thankful[Qur'an, 3:144]
-Allah gives more benefits and blessings to those who are thankful [Qur'an, 14:7]
-Allah protects those from harm who render Him thankfulness [Qur'an, 54:34-35]

29.1. Dua to make in every Dua to become of the appreciative

Allahumma a-inni alaZikrika wa shukrika wa husni ibadatik
(O Allah! Help me to remember you, to thank you, and to worship you in the best of manners)

29.2. Thanking people

The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, "Whoever has a favour done for him and says ‘Jazaak Allahu khayran‘has done his utmost to thank him."[At-Tirmithi]

30. Meet Your Brother with a happy face

Abu Dharr (Ra) said, "The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), told me, 'Do not consider anything correct insignificant, even meeting your brother with a happy face." [Muslim]

31. Even Moving obstacles from peoples paths is a great reward

Abu Hurairra (Ra) reported that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), said,"A man passed by a fallen branch in the middle of the road and said, 'By Allah, I will remove this from the path of the Muslims so that it does not inconvenience them' and he was admitted into the Garden." [Muslim]

32. Being kind to Parents is the best deed after Salat

It is narrated on the authority of Abdullah bin Mas'ud (Ra), who observed: "I asked Allah's Messenger (May peace be upon him) which deed was the best." He (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) replied: 'The Prayer at its appointed hour.' I (again) asked: "Then what?" He (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) replied: 'Kindness to the parents… [Sahih Muslim: 120]

33. Sending Darud and Peace on the blessed Prophet (Peace be upon him)

The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) as saying that "One sent by my Sustainer came to me and told me that 'Whoever from your Ummah sends Darud on you once ten good deeds are recorded onhis behalf, his ten (minor) sins are pardoned and he is elevated by ten stages" [SunanNisai and Musnad Ahmed, AI-targhib li al Mundhari, P.157 volume 3]
And Anas (Ra) a companion, has said that the Prophet (Sallallahu AlaihiWasallam) said that "When my name is mentioned before anyone it is incumbent upon him to, send darud on me, and whosoever sends darud once, Allah sends His Mercy on him ten times.
The best Darud is that which we read towards the end of our Salah and the shortest is to say "Salallahu AlaihiWasallim"

34. Seeking forgiveness as much as possible everyday

The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) was free of all sin, but even then he has said that "I beg for Allah's forgiveness seventy times or more every day" [Bukhari]
The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: "Whosoever regularly seeks Allah's pardon, Allah makes for him a way out of all tight corners, removes all his worries and grants him sustenance from sources he had never imagined." [AbuDamd, Kitab-al-Satat, Bab-al-Istighfar].

35. Planting Trees is like giving Sadaqa and a means of great Reward

Planting plants and trees in appropriate places is an act of great merit
Anas (Ra) has quoted the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam): "A man plants a tree or sows a field and a man or bird eats from it, the tree or field becomes a source of sadaqah for him." [Bukhari and Muslim]

36. Teach others beneficial Islamic things and have mercy of Allah and all creatures

Abu Umamah (Ra) has quoted the following words of our Prophet (SallallahuAlaihi Wasallam) “Allah the Most High and His Angels and all creatures of the Heavens and earth even the ants inside their ant-holes shower mercy one those who teach things of benefit to others.” [Jame-Tirmidhi]

37. Greet your Muslim brother whether you know them or not

The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), was asked as to which actions are good for Muslims. Among the actions which he enumerated was this: "You should greet people whether you know them or not."
It is reported about Abdullah bin Omar that sometimes he went out of the house only to greet any Muslims he met and thus to increase his merit. [Muwatta ImamMalik]

37.1. When entering one's house greet with salaam even when entering empty house

The Prophet ((Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) instructed his personal servant Anas (Ra) as follows: “Oh son! When you enter (your) house, greet your family members; this act shall be of benefit for both you and your family members." [Tirmidhi]
Even when entering an empty house one should greet with the intent that angels are being greeted.

37.2. Reward forgiving FULL salaam is 30 good deeds

Imran bin Husayn (Ra) recounts that once he and others were in the presence of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) when a man came and said, "Assalamu alaikum", to which the blessed Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) responded and said, "Ten" (i.e. the person who had greeted him had earned ten merits); then another man came and he"Assalamu alaikum wa Rahmatullah", to which the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) responded and said "Twenty" (i.e. the person had earned twenty merits). Finally a third man came and said "Assalamualaikum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatu", to which the exalted Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) responded and said, "Thirty" (i.e. the person had earned thirty merits) [Abu Daud, Tirmidhi, Jami al Usul, p. 602. vol6]

38. Love for the sake of Allah and be under his shade

One Hadith states, “Allah shall ask on the Day of Judgement, ' Where are those who loved for the sake of my Greatness? Today when there is no shade save Mine, I shall have them in My Shade.'" [Sahih Muslim: Kitab al Birr wa al Silah]
Another tells us that "On the Day of Judgement, those who had mutual love for the sake of Allah's Greatness shall be on pulpits of light and all shall envy them." [Jami' Tirmidhi, Kitab al Zuhd]

39. We will be with those whom we love even the Prophet (Peace be upon him)

Anas (Ra) Quotes that someone asked our blessed and exalted Prophet (SallallahuAlaihi Wasallam), "When shall come the Day of Judgement?" Our Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) asked him "What preparation have you made for the Day?" The man said, "Nothing, but I have love for Allah and for His Messenger." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, "You shall be (on that Day) with whom you love."
Anas (Ra) says that these words of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) so pleased us as nothing had ever done. He further said, "I have great love for the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and with Abu Bakr (Ra) and Umar (Ra), and because of this love, I shall be in their company, even though my deeds are not equal to theirs." [Sahih Bukhari, kitab-al-Adab, chapter Alamah al Hubb fiAllah]

40. Magnify one's intention and get even MORE reward doing good deeds!

The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: "Deeds (their correctness and rewards) depend upon intentions, and every person gets but what he has intended." [Agreed upon]
Ibn Al-Mubarak (Ra) said: "May a small deed be magnified by the sincere intention; and may a great deed be diminished by the insincere intention"
If we do not correct our intention before doing a good act or deed then we will not get rewarded our deeds even if it is a great one, while we can magnify our humble deeds by a sincere intention.

2019.12.31 23:42 Marlinmet Sunna of the Prophet

As Qur'an only Muslims we refute the traditional understanding of the sunna which has caused serious damage to Arab civilization. Because ‘becoming’ has been forced to stay locked in the period of the first three centuries of Islamic history, the traditional fixation on the sunna of the Prophet has made Arab-Muslim societies—philosophically speaking—flat, two dimensional. In contrast to other more three dimensional civilizations, Arab-Muslim societies have remained backward and still display symptoms of cultural decay and intellectual stagnation. A traditional understanding of the sunna forces today’s jurists to make their legal decisions strictly analogous to those issued between the seventh and the ninth centuries.
The traditional view has it that the sunna relates to us the words, acts, good deeds, statements, and decisions of Muhammad, God’s Messenger. It requires us to emulate the example of the Prophet as rigidly as possible in our daily conduct. The following verse 21 of Al-Ahzab and two hadiths have often been cited to convince and discipline us:
You have indeed in the Apostle of God a beautiful pattern (of conduct) for any one whose hope is in God and the Final Day, and who engages much in the praise of God. (Al-Ahzab 33:21)
The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, “I have left two things to you. As long as you hold to them you will not go astray: these [two things] are the book of Allah and the Sunna of His Prophet.” Imam Malik vol. 5, 1323 (Hadith no. 3338).
“Behold, I have been given this book together with something simila equal.” Jami' al-usul vol. 1, 68
Based on the dubious notion of Muhammad’s sanctity as prophet and messenger, the sunna, that is, the collective body of all ahadith that capture the words and deeds of a supposedly uber-human being, has gained an authority that intrudes into the daily life of every Muslim-Believer. General issues of religious belief and specific questions of social conduct are indiscriminately treated as equally authoritative and binding on us all. Every little detail of the Prophet’s life has been defined as equally sacrosanct, whether it concerned questions of universal, objective laws (nubuwwa) or legislation (risala), whether it referred to prophetic knowledge ('ilm) or to legislation (ahkam shar'iyya). The ahadith of the sunna have thus acquired the status of sacred texts whose authority cannot any longer be questioned. As a result, the ahadith, regardless of their often dubious origins and weak chains of transmitters, were given priority to the divine text even when they contradicted the verses of the Book
Neither Muhammad himself nor his companions would ever have approved of such notions of sanctity. On the contrary, we hear that Muhammad explicitly forbade his followers from compiling anything but the words of God. The oft-heard argument that the collection of ahadith enabled the Prophet’s companions to better distinguish between Muhammads words as a prophet (and human being) and the words of God (the divine author), and thus protect the latter from being mixed with the former, can be refuted by quoting verse 9 of Surat al-Hijr that rebukes such efforts. In this verse we are assured of the fact that Allah Himself will take care of His words as the sole and best protector of the Book, and that He would not need hadith compilers to do so:
We have, without doubt, sent down the Message; and We will assuredly guard it (from corruption). (Al-Hijr 15:9)
The truth is that after the prophet’s death in 632 his companions were preoccupied only with the task of producing an authoritative collection of divine revelations. They did not bother at all about prophetic narrations. They started collecting the divine ayat under the caliph Abu Bakr and completed the task under the caliph Uthman Ibn Affan, who eventually compiled the written mus'haf, the copy we hold in our hands today. This is what has become known as the codex of Uthman. It is said to have abrogated all other codices that existed at that time and which were subsequently all destroyed. The Prophet’s companions had realized that whatever Muhammad said or did as a human being could not have originated from a divine source and thus was strictly related to the political-historical context in which he lived. Even though they could have started to collect ahadith they continued to rely exclusively on the divine text. Knowing the Book very well they realized that to collect ahadith in order to complete divine revelation would have contradicted Allah’s words in verse 3 of Surat al-Maida:
This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed My favour upon you, and have chosen for you al-islam as your religion… (Al-Maida 5:3)
It was clear to them that the religion of Islam was perfected even without the existence of a single hadith. It was indeed inconceivable to think that Allah has given them an incomplete religion of which half, the ahadith, was still missing. And it would also be inconceivable to think that they, after having successfully collected all existing divine revelations, could have been so neglectful of not having exhaustively collected all existing ahadith (a process that lasted several centuries), therefore embarrassing generations of future Muslims by having secured only half of Islam.
The collection of ahadith and the process of turning them into sacrosanct texts is undoubtedly a later development. The following aspects have triggered this fateful turn towards the sanctification of the Prophet’s sunna. We have identified six major errors which all occurred because of a wrong interpretation of a verse in the Book. In dealing with these errors, we quote the verse first, highlight the mistakes made, and then introduce our own reading of the text.
1. The first one concerns the belief that Muhammad's words were inspired by God:
And he [Muhammad] does not talk [yantiq] capriciously. It is only a revelation [wahyun] being revealed [yuha]… (Al-Najm 53:3–4)
It was thought that the two verses equate what Muhammad said (yantiq) with divine revelation (wahy). This led to the erroneous view that the Quran and the sunna are two categories of revealed or inspired word. It has been overlooked that Al-Najm 53:3-4 were revealed in Mecca at a time when Muhammad was confronted by strong opposition from the Ahl al-Quraish. They had questioned the validity of Muhammad's claim to have received revelations from God. They did not question Muhammad's own words but only what he presented as divine revelation. Verses 3 and 4 were revealed as an assurance of the divine origins of his revelations from God, not an assurance of the sacrality of Muhammad's sayings as prophet and human being.
2. The second error concerns the belief that Muhammad’s acts and deeds are sacrosanct, that is, unblemished by mistake and hence infallible. This view can easily be rejected by reading the following verses of Surat al-Abasa in which Allah unambiguously reprimands Muhammad and concedes his fallibility:
He frowned and turned away when the blind man came to him— for all you know, he might have grown in spirit, or taken note of something useful to him. (Abasa 80:1-4)
This is a clear rebuke by God because Muhammad was so impertinent to have turned away from Ibn Maktum, an old, blind beggar, in order to address instead the notables of the Ahl al-Quraish in the hope that they would accept his call and convert to Islam. Criticizing such snobbishness, Allah asks Muhammad to change his attitude and turn back to the beggar, for the old man might spiritually benefit enormously from the Prophet’s attention. In the following verse we hear another rebuke of Muhammad’s action:
Prophet, why do you prohibit what God has made lawful to you in your desire to please your wives? Yet God is forgiving and merciful. (Al-Tahrim 66:1)
And another time:
It is not fitting for an apostle that he should have prisoners of war until he has thoroughly subdued the land. You look for the temporal goods of this world, but God looks to the Hereafter: And God is exalted in might, wise. (Al-Anfal 8:67)
3. The third error has occurred by inventing the notion of the Prophet’s impeccability (al-'isma). This view can easily be rejected by reading the following verse of Surat al-Ma'ida:
Messenger, proclaim everything that has been sent down to you from your Lord—if you do not, then you will not have communicated this message—and God will protect you from people. God does not guide those who defy Him. (Al-Ma'ida 5:67)
The verse makes it clear that Muhammad was not infallible as a prophet per se. His impeccability as a prophet is qualified by, a) his infallible delivery of the revealed text of al-dhikr al-hakim (because he transmitted the message without adding or taking away a single letter and without letting any human being interfere in the process of transmission); and by, b) his moral perfection, in the sense that he did not violate an absolute taboo of God or transgress a limit set by God.
His moral perfection lied in the fact that he never ventured to perform ijtihad in anything that God had explicitly forbidden. Instead, in everyday life he performed practical ijtihads within the parameters of what God had allowed (al-halal). His ijtihads were never fixed once and for all and were never declared absolute as they changed and developed according to historical circumstances. In other words, by his sunna he impeccably specified what Allah had allowed in His Book. But such impeccability does not imply that the Prophet’s specifications are absolute and to be enforced in other regions of this world or in other sociohistorical contexts of human history.
4. The fourth misunderstanding pertains to the common exaggeration of Muhammad’s prophetic role:
(We sent them) with clear proofs and scriptures; and We revealed to you the reminder, so that you may make clear [li-tubayyin] to mankind what has been revealed to them, and that, perchance, they may reflect. (Al-Nahl 16:44)
This verse of Surat Al-Nahl has led to much confusion among Muslim commentators. This confusion produced the outrageous view that the Sunna is superior to the Quran, in the sense that the Sunna overrides the authority of the Quran if the latter contradicts the former, which basically amounted to an abrogation of the divine text.
The problem lies in a too literal understanding of verse 44 of Al-Nahl and the phrase ‘that you may make clear to mankind what has been revealed to them’. It was thought that this refers to textual ambiguities in the divine text which Muhammad was meant to clarify, or to too generally formulated injunctions that he was sent to specify. In other words, the sunna of the Prophet was seen as a pragmatic specification and perfect exemplification of Allah’s rather ambivalent legal injunctions. Legal experts had forthwith to use the instrument of analogy in applying Muhammad’s decisions in order to find and establish their own. In the end, the ahadith were believed to be the perfect filter through which one could explain an obscure divine text, while the sunna became the absolute yardstick of the ‘real’ legal intentions by the divine text. To read the Book without the filter of the ahadith became increasingly difficult, resulting in the fatal thinking that the sunna overrides the Quran’s authority and that ‘the Quran needs the sunna more than the sunna needs the Qur"an’. And yet, ‘Allah, the Highly exalted, is above what they ascribe to Him’!
Confusion occurred over the correct interpretation of the Arabic phrase li-tubayyin and its root words bayan or tibyan. The verb bayana was often thought to mean ‘to explain clearly’ or ‘to make clear’ and was identified as the main task of the sunna. The following verses of the Book, however, show that bayana rather denotes ‘to make evident’, or to bring out what is hidden (i.e., not yet discernible):
Those who conceal the clear (signs) We have sent down, and the guidance, after We have made it (known) [bayyanahu] for the people in the Book—on them shall be God’s curse, and the curse of those entitled to curse. (Al-Baqara 2:159)
And remember God took a covenant from the People of the Book, to make it known and clear [la-tubayyanunnahu] to mankind, and not to hide it… (Al'Imran 3:187)
O people of the Book! There has come to you our Apostle, revealing to you [yubayyinu lakum] much that you used to hide in the Book… (Al-Ma'ida 5:15)
‘And eat and drink, until the white thread of dawn appear [yatabayyina] to you distinct from its black thread…’ (Al-Baqara 2:187)
It is clear that in this context the root meaning of b-y-n is ‘to make apparent’, that is, visible to the eyes, something that is hidden, obscured, that is, invisible to the eyes. We hear further proof in the following two verses:
And Abraham prayed for his father’s forgiveness only because of a promise he had made to him. But when it became clear to him [tabayyana] that he was an enemy to God, he dissociated himself from him: for Abraham was most tender-hearted, forbearing. (Al-Tawba 9:114)
He has created man; He has taught him speech (and intelligence) [al-bayan]. (Al-Rahman 55:3–4)
In 9:114 we learn that tabayyana refers to the moment when the enmity of Abraham’s father to God became evident to Abraham— perceived by his senses and understood by his rational mind:
When we have recited it, repeat the recitation and We shall make it clear [bayanahu]. (Al-Qiyama 75:18-19)
We have sent down to you the Book [revealing] all things [tibyanan], a guide, a mercy, and glad tidings to Muslims. (Al-Nahl 16:89)
There is, in their stories, instruction for men endued with understanding. It is not a tale invented, but a confirmation of what went before it—a detailed exposition [tafsil] of all things, and a guide and a mercy to any such as believe. (Yusuf 12:111)
This is the way of your Lord, leading straight: We have detailed [fassalna] the signs for those who receive admonition. (Al-An'am 6:126)
The Book says it over and over again: the divine text is clearly visible to the eyes and audible to the ears; in all its details it is unobscured, uncovered, and unambiguous. Such a crystal-clear text does not need clarifications by the sunna: it has already been explained and made clear, and all the necessary details have been given. Why should there be a need to lessen the confusion if there is no confusion in the first place?
An example taken from contemporary politics can illustrate what is really meant by bayan. Just imagine that two heads of state come together to negotiate a new bilateral treaty. At the end of their meeting a joint communiqué is prepared with a summary of the talks, and this is distributed among the accompanying press journalists. What happens is that the spokesperson announces all the details of the negotiations even though he did not take part in them. Furthermore, he does not know what else has been discussed and what the communiqué does not mention. The spokesperson’s only task is to read the communiqué to the press, and make its points audible and visible, that is, known to his audience; a clarifying commentary by him is neither requested nor expected.
This example illustrates the role that Muhammad played. His role as a messenger of God was to make Allah’s revelation known to people. It was neither requested nor expected that he change the form or shape of the revelations (the dhikr al-hakim), nor that he reformulate them in his own words. Some Muslim scholars have claimed that Muhammad merely received inspirations from God and that he put them into his own words which he then announced as divine revelations. If this is true, it would mean that Muhammad possessed all the superhuman capacities necessary to formulate such sublime speech, and that he had completely understood all the divine instructions. It would mean that the Prophet’s ‘being’ is the ‘being’ of the most praiseworthy, but surely Allah, the highly exalted, is above what they ascribe to Him!
Let us repeat the fundamental truth that in front of us is the Book, the unaltered, unfiltered, and untampered word of God that came down to Muhammad in its final format and complete in content. It was delivered to the people without the need for clarification or specification, and without the need for protection or guardianship (see Surat al-Hijr 15:9). Such protection has since been achieved by written copies of the original manuscript, first as scrolls, then, after the invention of the printing machine as books and, nowadays, as computer files or audio/video CDs and DVDs. Before all of that was possible, the Prophet Muhammad was in this respect the most reliable, most trustworthy, and most perfect transmitter of the divine text.
A final thought: if it is true that the Book is ambiguous and the sunna unambiguous, and that one always has to go back to see how the sunna has specified the general rules of the Book, it would leave no room for human reason, experiment, reflection, or independent thinking. It would disqualify verse 2 of Surat yusuf as being entirely meaningless:
We have sent it down as an Arabic Quran, in order that you may learn wisdom. (Yusuf 12:2)
5. The fifth problem occurred because of a wrong understanding of Surat Al-Hashr:
Whatever the Messenger gives you [ma atakum], take; but whatever he forbids [ma nahakum], refrain from. Fear Allah, for Allah is terrible in retribution. (Al-Hashr 59:7)
In verse 59:7 we notice the usage of the verb a-t-a, ‘to come’ or ‘to arrive’, which implies that the Book deliberately avoids the verb j-a-', which also means ‘to come’ or ‘to arrive’. The reason for this is that the two verbs connote two different origins for what ‘comes’ or ‘arrives’. Whereas a-t-a is (semantically) reflexive and connotes an origin that lies in the source (item or person) itself, the verb j-a-' is transitive as it connotes an origin that lies outside a source (item or person). This difference is best illustrated by verse 43 of Surat Maryam:
“O my father! To me has come [ja'anÊ] knowledge which has not reached you [ya'atik]; so follow me: I will guide you to a way that is even and straight.” (Maryam 19:43)
We notice here that the text uses first ja'anÊ in order to indicate that Abraham, the speaker in this verse, has received divine knowledge from Allah, that is, from somewhere outside himself, whereas in the case of his father, who has not received such knowledge, the verb ya'atik is used, hence Abraham’s command to his father to follow him. As for the verb a-t-a in general, the Book employs it only if it refers to actions, never to speech acts or communication by words.
If we apply these insights to 59:7, we can now explain why the verb a-t-a (ma atakum), is used and not j-a-', or ja'akum. Ma atakum refers to knowledge that Muhammad gained from human experiences, that is, from human origins, sources that lie within himself. The Book deliberately avoids the term ja'akum in the phrase ‘so take what the apostle assigns to you (ma atakum)’ because if it had used ja'akum, it would mean that Muhammad's (human) knowledge is derived from an (outside) divine source—surely Allah, the Highly exalted, is above what they ascribe to Him—or, at least, it would give the impression that Muhammad might even be the author of the Book.
In sum, ‘what the Apostle assigns to you’ is taken from within Muhammad as a human being, while the Book came down ( ja'a) from outside Muhammad, both in shape and content. If we apply this more specifically to the phrase ‘so take what the apostle assigns to you’ and link it to the question of human legislation in the form of the sunna of the Prophet, we must then regard Muhammad’s efforts to govern seventh-century Arabian society and to establish a new, centralized state on the Arabian Peninsula as his efforts and as contingent to his historical context. Every human society is asked to do exactly that (‘take what the apostle assigns to you’), to govern society and build a state according to the conditions of the present time.
On a different note, we see how verse 59:7 employs the term n-h-y in the phrase ‘refrain from what he forbids you (nahakum)’. This usage is deliberate because it avoids the term h-r-m. Muhammad was only required to permit or prohibit ( ya'amur wa-yanha) but never to absolutely allow or forbid (yuhallil wa-yahrum) since the latter is the prerogative of Allah alone. The difference is far-reaching: whereas the area of permission/prohibition is part of human legislation and is contingent, relative, flexible, and changing, the area of absolute permission and taboo (halal and haram) is divine, fixed, absolute, and everlasting. Whereas Allah allows or forbids and permits or prohibits, human beings can only permit or prohibit but not absolutely allow or forbid.
6. The sixth and final error was to equate obedience to Allah with obedience to Allah’s Apostle:
First, it needs to be pointed out that the Book demands obedience to Muhammad only as a messenger (rasul) but never as a prophet (naby):
And obey God and the Apostle [al-rasul]; that you may obtain mercy. (Al'Imran 3:132)
For the purpose of further exploring the difference between prophethood and messengerhood we must now define how we understand prophethood and the role of a prophet. In order to do this we need to introduce the categories of naba' and khabar which designate two different types of ‘news’:
  1. Naba': refers to an event in the unseen or unknown world which has either already taken place in the near or distant past or will take place in the near or distant future. Muhammad's role as a prophet (naby) was to disclose to his fellow men these events which were hidden to them but which, through his announcements, became discernible. These announcements form the book of prophethood which does not contain any legal injunctions. In terms of style and rhetorical expression prophetic announcements are short, crisp, and concise. A reference to them can be found in the following verse:
Those cities, We relate to you [i.e., Muhammad] some of their [anba'iha]; their messengers came to them with clear signs, but they would not believe in what they had denied earlier. This Allah seals the hearts of the unbelievers. (Al-A'raf 7:101)
  1. Khabar: refers to an event in the past or immediate present (not the Khabar future) in the tangible or known world which can be empirically seen or reconstructed (if it happened in the distant past) by the people. However, such khabar events may turn into naba' events with the passing of time. For example, what happened to Noah and his people were khabar events for those who personally witnessed them. But over the centuries they turned into naba' events as they became unknown or indiscernible to subsequent generations. In terms of style and rhetorical expression they are elaborate, lengthy, and detailed. Both categories of ‘news’, naba' and khabar, pertain to the content of the Quran and form the Qur'anic stories; they belong to the book of prophethood and do not contain legal injunctions.
With this in mind we say that the miraculous nature (al-i'jaz) of the book of prophethood is defined by the quality of knowledge it contains; it is i'jaz 'ilmi, or an ‘epistemological miracle’. Not only does it contain precise knowledge of the universal laws that govern the entire universe and nature, but it also hosts historical stories which had either already happened before Muhammad’s time (naba' events to him) or which he himself witnessed (khabar events). For us today, such khabar events have now become naba' events.
The miraculous nature of the book of messengerhood, in contrast, is defined by the soundness and righteousness of its legal instructions: they are valid until the Day of Judgement. It enjoys everlasting validity because it is based on the principle of hanifiyya and because its injunctions are applied within the legal framework of Allah’s limits.
The Book, directly revealed into Muhammad’s brain, holds prophethood and messengerhood. It came down as the last of the many messages of Islam which history had accumulated over time and with which Allah has sent his prophets and messengers to all peoples in this world. Since Muhammad's death our knowledge of the universe has increased and our legal systems have improved. Humankind as a whole has greatly advanced, so much so that we no longer need another prophet or another revelation as we can now rely on reason and our matured experiences of this world. The scientific institutions of the modern era have inherited prophecies and prophethoods, and the new legislative assemblies and parliaments have inherited ancient messengers and their messengerhoods. In other words, with the ‘seal of the prophets’ ended too the period of external, moral intervention and consequently also the role of religious experts.
If the Book is Allah’s revelation as text and content from its first to its last letter, we would need to specify what makes it so different from the other messages and prophecies that have previously been revealed. We believe that the special nature of the Book lies in its sacredness as the last and final revelation.
No one, we repeat, is able, nor should be allowed, to claim total knowledge of the Book in its entirety or its single parts, even if he is a prophet or messenger. If someone claimed to have such total knowledge he would commit the crime of shirk, as he would become a partner of God in His knowledge and His ‘being’ in-and-for-itself. If Muhammad had total knowledge of the Book, in its entirety or its single parts, and his interpretations and ijtihads had all the flavor of absolute truth, it would make him a partner of Allah in divine knowledge and, even more ridiculously, the author of the Book. By God, we cannot accuse Muhammad of shirk regarding Allah since he never claimed to possess absolute knowledge of Allah’s Book. But because our honorable scholars overrated the sunna to such an extent that they began treating Allah’s Book as if Muhammad had been able to write it himself, Muslim believers were given the impression that Muhammad possessed superhuman knowledge.
How does the Book constitute its ‘being’ in-and-for-itself? We believe it is because of the stability or firmness of the text, or better: the stable nature of al-dhikr, which is the linguistic, that is, phonetic/ lexical, format of the Book. The text’s dhikr, which we have in front of us today, is exactly the same dhikr that existed in the seventh century. And it is the same text that Allah revealed into Muhammad’s brain from where it was then transmitted ad verbum ipsissimus to his fellow men. The text of al-dhikr does not possess ‘becoming’ or ‘progressing’, hence its textual format is fixed forever. On that we hear:
It is truly We who have revealed [al-dhikr], and we are truly its guardians. (Al-Hijr 15:9)
If the Book possesses the quality of ‘being’ in-and-for-itself, how are human beings supposed to deal with it? How should we, being subject to ‘becoming’ and ‘progressing’, read the divine text? And how should future readers, whose ‘becoming’ and ‘progressing’ will have inevitably moved on to a more advanced level of knowledge, understand the Book? We believe that readers of different historical periods will have understood different things from the text. Readers of the eighth, ninth, twelfth, eighteenth and twentieth centuries have differed from one another in terms of their intellectual capacities and methodologies. Some have discovered things that others have overlooked, and a third group of readers may have elicited things from the text that the other two groups have completely ignored. This is because despite its fixed ‘being’, the Book is a text of life into whose ‘becoming’ and ‘progressing’ the reader has been absorbed according to his own degree of ‘becoming’ and ‘progressing’. This fundamental hermeneutical principle underlines our dictum that ‘the text is fixed but its content moves’, expressing a subtle dialectical relationship between textual structure and meaning.
The messages that readers receive from the text and the messages that they might overlook depend on the epistemological context in which they read the text. In this regard, every reading is bound to be contemporary. A reader of the twelfth century approached the text with the scientific and social awareness of his time, his reading being the most contemporary reading possible at that time; we in the twenty-first century apply the scientific and intellectual level of our own age, turning our reading into the best possible contemporary reading. A reader in premodern times will have used the most upto-date knowledge available to him to understand the text’s explanation of life on earth. He would have used the model of the four elements of water, earth, air, and fire which scholars at that time employed to explain nature and life. In the modern age, however, we apply the findings of laboratory experiments that explain life as the basic transformation of hydrogen into uranium, that is, we are using an altogether different explanatory model. In both cases the most contemporary forms of knowledge have been applied and yet two different interpretations have resulted. This is because the scientific and intellectual horizon of the prescientific reader simply was not as advanced as ours, by which we recognize the unstoppable, relentless progress of ‘becoming’ and ‘progressing’ in our scientific knowledge.
We now understand much better why the Book is the only and ultimate source of prophethood and messengerhood (not the sunna!). It is the only text that possesses the quality of ‘being’ in-and-for-itself, and therefore the only text that is sacred. No other text by a human being, whether prophet or messenger, can ever claim to possess the same level of sacredness as the Book.
Regarding obedience to Muhammad only as a messenger (rasul) but never as a prophet (naby):
And obey God and the Apostle [al-rasul]; that you may obtain mercy. (Al'Imran 3:132)
This verse stands for many others of similar wording. The Book never uses the phrase ‘And obey God and the prophet’. Second, prophethood is faced with either acceptance or disapproval, and a typical response would be ‘Yes, it could be’ or ‘No, it can’t be’, whereas messengerhood is faced with either obedience or disobedience, typically expressed in ‘Yes, I assent’ or ‘No, I dissent’. When, for example, Muhammad announced, as Prophet, the verse: ‘for the convulsion of the Hour (of Judgement) will be a thing terrible!’ (Al'Hajj 22:1), the reaction of his listeners was either: ‘Yes, I think this is true’, or ‘No, this is a lie’, whereas when he, as Messenger, said: ‘anyone who is ill or on a journey should make up for the lost days by fasting on other days later.’ (Al-Baqara 2:185), the likely response was surely not ‘Yes, I think this is true’ but either ‘Yes, I will follow that instruction’ or ‘No, I reject it’. Third, when Allah addresses Muhammad in the Book as prophet, in the manner of ‘O you prophet’, the instructions that follow are of general guidance, advice, or admonition issued because of very concrete instances in the life of Muhammad. They are not meant to fall into the category of legal permissions or prohibitions. In sum, the call for obedience to Muhammad is restricted to his role as Messenger, not as a prophet. And his messengerhood, as we have explained earlier, consists of legal injunctions, moral rules, and ritual obligations.
In order to avoid the confusion that is so common in dealing with Muhammad’s sunna we need to introduce different types of obedience:
Combined obedience’ (al-ta'a al-mutaffasila): obedience to Allah and His Messenger:
And obey God and the Apostle; that you may obtain mercy. (Al'Imran 3:132)
All who obey God and the Apostle are in the company of those on whom is the grace of God—of the prophets (who teach), the sincere (lovers of truth), the witnesses (who testify), and the righteous (who do good): Ah! What a beautiful fellowship! (Al-Nisa' 4:69)
In those two verses, Allah, the Living and Everlasting, connects obedience to God to obedience to His Messenger. If obedience is demanded in this manner, it becomes obligatory for everyone who lived at the time of Muhammad or after his death. Ritual and moral obedience is expressed by performing the rituals that Muhammad practiced and by respecting the absolute taboos that Allah has set. The taboos are clearly laid out in the Book and are part of the innate disposition of human beings and an essential element within our consciousness. No shackles or bonds are necessary in order to accept them.
Muhammad's infallibility consisted in his perfection of never having violated any of these taboos, and our obligation is to at least try to imitate him in that. Our obedience to Muhammad’s legal injunctions is expressed in practicing ijtihad within the limits set by Allah, which allows us to ‘turn and bend sideways’, that is, to follow the principle of hanifiyya. It is not expressed in following his ijtihads to the letter because the legal limits (al-hudud) are Allah’s limits, not Muhammad’s limits. When verse 14 of Surat al-Nisa' says, ‘But those who disobey God and His apostle and transgress His limits…’ (Al-Nisa' 4:14), the possessive pronoun ‘His’ refers to Allah, not to Muhammad. If the Book had wanted to refer to both Allah’s and Muhammad’s limits it would have used the Arabic dual-ending huma, ‘transgress their (both) limits’.
Muhammad himself practiced ijtihad within Allah’s limits and it is our obligation to follow him in this. Several times he cautioned his companions not to apply the highest possible legitimate penalty (the upper limit), the death penalty, in cases where there was doubt and uncertainty about the guilt of the accused. He said: ‘Repeal the hudud due to uncertainty, and overlook the offence of the righteous person unless it occurs in one of Allah’s hudud.’ He also said: ‘Repeal the hudud from Muslims as much as you can. If you can find a way out for a Muslim then apply it. For it is better for a ruler to make a mistake in forgiving someone than to make a mistake in punishing someone." He did not urge his companions to implement the hudud penalties if doubts persisted. He urges us to describe and define the crime before exacting penalties, and he calls upon us to be particularly vigilant the nearer we approach the upper limit of Allah’s punishments, allowing us to move away from it due to the circumstances of a specific case and the contingencies of objective reality.
As for the obedience concerning ritual practices we distinguish between two types:
a. Absolute obedience: believers follow the instructions as given in the Book, for example, ‘So establish regular prayer and give regular charity; and obey the apostle; that you may receive mercy…’ (al-Nur 24:56), or as a hadith puts it: ‘Pray as you saw me praying."Obedience here is absolute so, for example, a prayer will be rejected if it is done in a way that differs from Muhammad’s behavior. It will also be rejected if it is outwardly performed according to this model while it is not directed to Allah. The same applies to the pilgrimage—a hadith requests: ‘From me take your rituals’. It also applies to the fast. However, even if one has to fast as Muhammad did, there is no injunction that demands also to break the fast as he did.
b. Relative obedience: this requires ijtihad within the limits set by Allah with regards to these rituals. For example, the lower limit of alms tax is 2.5 percent of our income but it might not always stay as low as this. If economic and financial circumstances dictate, one may raise the alms tax and increase the financial burden for the benefit of those who receive our charity. This increase can be decided by a proper ijtihad. But note that one must never go below the lower limit of 2.5 percent— obedience to Muhammad in this is also obedience to God.
Separate Obedience’ (al-ta'a al-munfasila): eternal obedience to Allah and time-restricted obedience to Muhammad:
O you who believe! Obey God, and obey the apostle, and those charged with authority among you. If you differ in anything among yourselves, refer it to God and His apostle, if you do believe in God and the Last Day: That is best, and most suitable for final determination. (al-Nisa' 4:59)
Obey God, and obey the apostle, and beware (of evil): if you do turn back, know you that it is our apostle’s duty to proclaim (the message) in the clearest manner. (al-Ma'ida 5:92)
These verses refer to a second type of obedience to Muhammad which, to us today, is separate from obedience to God. It was a combined form of obedience only during Muhammad's lifetime. It designates the obedience of his followers to what he had decided, based on the principle of ‘tying and loosening’. While creating the foundations of a new state amidst the political and cultural turmoil of his time, Muhammad continuously exercised ijtihad, sometimes loosening up to a maximum of permissibility, sometimes tying it up to an absolute minimum. He was by no means infallible in his ijtihads, while his decisions reflected the conditions of his time. His ijtihads were historical, relative, and contingent. The decisions he took fell into the categories of situational permissions and prohibitions and had, since they were not explicit rules (ahkam) of the Book, only regional and temporary significance. As historically contingent rules which reflected the breadth and width of the limits that Muhammad himself had set, they do not fall within the sphere of Allah’s limits. Unlike the limits of Allah, Muhammad’s limits and the rules he ‘placed in between’, for example, the prohibition of music, dance, singing, the visual arts, and such, enjoy neither absolute validity nor eternal authority. If Muhammad’s decisions were necessary at the time he took them, they had all the flavor of the ancient society in which he lived.
His prohibitions of music, dancing, singing, painting, sculpturing, for example, can be explained—only, of course, if one wants to explain and justify them—by the prevailing idolatry of Arabian society. They were however never inserted into the text of the Book and hence cannot be regarded as permanent injunctions. The concrete measures that Muhammad took against the idolatry of his time, originating in human (not divine) legislation, cannot be equated with the universal and eternal limits that Allah has set and which are binding for us today. What we hear, instead, is the admonition to keep away from the ‘filth of the idols’ (al-rajas min al-authan), not from the idols as such. The ahadith, reflecting the cultural milieu of ancient societies, certainly will not help to identify measures and rules that are appropriate for our contemporary period. We will have to do without them.

2019.12.11 09:54 equranonlineschool Women Rights In Islam

Women Rights in Islam

Before Islam, the birth of a daughter in the family was no occasion for rejoicing but was regarded with humiliation. The practice of killing female children was common and uncontrolled. Women were treated
Like a slave or property. They were used for one purpose and then discarded. They had no independence as they could own no property and were not allowed to inherit. Their personal consent
Concerning anything related to their well-being was considered unimportant to the extent that they were never even treated as a party to a marriage contract.
With the advent of Islam, more than the 1400 years ago, many rights were granted to women by Allah on of that right is that Islam considered women to be equal to a man as a human being and as his partner in his life. The Quran makes it clear that the woman has been created with a soul of the same nature as man.
In Islamic law a woman is an independent, unique individual in her own rights she has the same responsibility toward herself, towards Allah and towards other human beings as a man, she will be rewarded or punished hereafter without discrimination towards her female gender. In Islam, the rights and responsibilities of a woman is equal to the woman.
Islam treats women in various dimensions: as a daughter, as a wife, a mother, and as divorcee as widows as give them rights accordingly
women always belong to the paternal family and marriage does not break this bond. Change of name after marriage is a borrowed culture.

Women As Daughter

📷
Before 14 years Arabs people was burry their daughter or burn them
But Islam gave him all rights
Daughter is a Blessing by Allah. About the education, Expenses, and Sponsorship of daughter the some Hadith are as follows:
1: Hazrat Auf bin Malik Asghayi said that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: A Muslim who has three daughters willingly accepts the burden of their expenses educates them, marries them, the hell Will become a hijab for this. One of the women said, “Ya Rasool Allah(S.A.W.W) if one has two daughters, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said that hell will become a hijab for this too.
2: Anas bin Malik narrates that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: If a person brings something to his children from the market, then he is like a person who does something for charity. When it comes to distributing it, he should start with the daughters. Indeed, Allah Almighty blesses the daughters. He who is kind to his daughters is like the one who cries out to him, and the tears of those who cry out to God cause his forgiveness, and the person who is happy with the daughters of Allah, on the day of his sorrow, will make him happy. Allah will make rich.
3: The man is Lucky that the first child is a daughter.
4: The Holy Prophet (S.A.W.W) said, “should I not tell you what is the best charity”
That you should show kindness to that daughter who (becoming a widow or having been divorced) has been returned to you, and who has no other maintainer or support.”
Females got a status in not just society but an inheritance too.
They came under the protection of their fathers, brothers, and husbands.
Although Islam has brought a great revival still females, especially daughters become a victim of prejudice.
However, according to Islam, daughters are considered to be mercy from Allah.
In case a daughter is born in someone’s house, that person should not get sad, instead, he should rejoice because it is a Mercy from Allah.
Even our Prophet Muhammad P.B.U.H said that do not curse those who have daughters because I am the father of daughters of too.
People today think that daughters can be a big burden for them because they have to make arrangements for their wedding.
They have a narrow view that daughters will be working for the person whom she will live with so why should they provide them with the best education or
Brought up, daughters are mostly abandoned because of this reason.

Woman as Mother

📷

in the Quran, Allah said about the rights of Mother and father “and your Lord decreed that not worshipped except him and to parents, good treatment whether one of them reach old age (while) with you, say not to them (so much as) “uff” , and do not repel them speak to them a noble word. And lower them to the wing of humility out of mercy and says “my Lord, have mercy upon them as they brought me up when I was small”
The Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (peace be upon him) said that “Heaven is under the feet of mother”
Mother is a great entity. There is no great relation except Mother in the world. Mother always looks after us and cares about over health. Mother teaches us the right way of life. A mother is an angle a kinda gentlewoman. Mother gives birth to us. She takes good care of us. She gives us every all the facilities that we need. She gets up early and sleeps very late for us. She works very hard yet, without complaining. Mother is a thrifty and industrious woman. Mother gives us good advice that needs in real life.
Mother is the most important person in our life. She taught us how to feel well. She shows us how to handle these feelings of anger, fear, guilt, joy, sadness, excitement, hate and anxiety. She also shows us how to give and take. In short, the mother is a great blessing of Allah. Mother always keeps us alive. We should respect mom and we should accept every mother that’s she wants and needs. if somebody saw the face of her mom in haply then its equal to one hajj. If we will respect parents then over the new generation respect us if will not respect parents then over the new generation did not respect us.
Do not abuse each other of the mother. Every mom is the gift of God. And it’s so precious so gift. Mother is the model for his child. That’s why a child growing up in the company of mother as per child growth the mother teaches him the lesson of life. You know the first school of the child is the own house. Why because his mother teaches him everything about life. A mom is a great friend for his children, especially for her daughter. Allah says in Surah Luqman
And we have stressed on man concerning his parents, his mother bore him undergoing weakness upon weakness and his weaning takes two years that give thanks to Me and to your parents. Lastly, the return is towards me.
According to Ayat, we on over self that we should respect parents and look after them when they become old as they look after us .according to hadith a Muslim is that who obedience Allah and obedience the Prophet and his parents.

Woman as Wife

📷
40 Centuries ago, when Islam came on the world, it gave the rights to the women which included also
Rights of wife’s About the rights of wives the Prophets Hazrat Muhammad Muhammad (S.A.W.W) said that “ The most perfect in faith among you in one who is good and lenient to his wife and the best among you is one who is the best for his wife, and I am most perfect in faith among you as I treat my women (wives) with great kindness.” [ Trimzi] “And treat them with virtuous goodness.” [Muslim]
“if the woman demands a cook as a necessity, the man should provide the made for her service if the woman is such as unused to do household chores or is unable to do it” Our prophet Hazrat Muhammad (S.A.W.W) said: “how could they beat their women in daytime as slaves and sleep with them in the night?
When husband and wife look at each other with love, Allah looks at both of them with his mercy.
The relationship between a husband and his wife should be like the relationship of hand and an Eye. If the eye cries, the hand should always be there to wipe its tears. Just like the husband wipes the wife’s Tears. Allah is pleased when the husband play with his wife. Due to this, he fixes his (good reward) for them or he established halal Provision for them.

Equal Pay For Equal Work For Women

Women are struggling for their rights for equal pay to equal works. This paper will explore some of the
Causes of wage differences between women and men as well as acts that have been put in places to deal with the issue. The article will also analyze the reasons why for many years now, there was a disparity in wages.
It is now illegal to pay women and men different wages for the same. This follows the implementation of the Equal pay Act of 1963. There is no solid argument against payment equality for the same work between both genders. It is also evident that men do some jobs better than women and in many cases, equal work is not solely considered a pay determinant (E. laws.gov.on.ca, 2014.p.1).
Traditionally in American society, a woman was entitled with the responsibility of being a homemaker or being a caretaker. Even when they went against this kind of stereotype to do other jobs, they are given the same opportunity when it comes to set for a specific job. Women are supposed to receive equal pay just like men based on the fact that they are sole providers of their families.
In 1940s men were also fully responsible for their families. The roles were however interrupted following World War 2 when men went fighting. This forced many women to take up labor forced duties and even though many of them did the same jobs as men, the pays were different when determining pays rates, there are two factors that are considered. The supply of labor for a particular job is one of the factors.
For instance, if skilled labors are few, the pay will be high (Levine, 2002, p.1). Secondly, the employers, government for trader unions can decide salaries and wages for their employers. It is a fact that women are paid low wages and salaries in many parts Of the globe despite the fact that they did the same jobs as men. This is an indication that unions do not focus more on the duties carried out by women.
Similarly, the number of women is high and can comfortably work for a short period.
Several arguments have also been raised against women\s equal pay. Single women, for instance, are not supposed to earn similar salaries like married men.

4. Evidence of a Non-Eternal View

Abu Amina Elias states:
Abu Dharr reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:
أَتَانِي جِبْرِيلُ عَلَيْهِ السَّلَام فَبَشَّرَنِي أَنَّهُ مَنْ مَاتَ مِنْ أُمَّتِكَ لَا يُشْرِكُ بِاللَّهِ شَيْئًا دَخَلَ الْجَنَّةَ
Gabriel, upon him be peace, came to me to give the good news that anyone from my nation who dies without associating partners with Allah will enter Paradise.
I said, “Even if he commits adultery and theft?” The Prophet said:
وَإِنْ زَنَى وَإِنْ سَرَقَ
Even if he commits adultery and theft*.*
Source: Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī 1180, Grade: Muttafaqun Alayhi
Jabir reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:
يُعَذَّبُ نَاسٌ مِنْ أَهْلِ التَّوْحِيدِ فِي النَّارِ حَتَّى يَكُونُوا فِيهَا حُمَمًا ثُمَّ تُدْرِكُهُمْ الرَّحْمَةُ فَيُخْرَجُونَ وَيُطْرَحُونَ عَلَى أَبْوَابِ الْجَنَّةِ قَالَ فَيَرُشُّ عَلَيْهِمْ أَهْلُ الْجَنَّةِ الْمَاءَ فَيَنْبُتُونَ كَمَا يَنْبُتُ الْغُثَاءُ فِي حِمَالَةِ السَّيْلِ ثُمَّ يَدْخُلُونَ الْجَنَّةَ
People among those who worshiped Allah alone (ahl al-tawḥīd) will be punished in the Hellfire until they are coals. Then the mercy of Allah will reach them and they will be taken out and presented at the gates of Paradise. The people of Paradise will pour water over them and they will grow just as the stubble carried by the stream grows, then they will enter Paradise.

An-Nawawi commented on these traditions, saying:فَهُوَ حُجَّةٌ لِمَذْهَبِ أَهْلِ السَّنَةِ أَنَّ أَصْحَابَ الْكَبَائِرِ لَا يُقْطَعُ لَهُمْ بِالنَّارِ وَأَنَّهُمْ إِنْ دَخَلُوهَا أُخْرِجُوا مِنْهَا وَخُتِمَ لَهُمْ بِالْخُلُودِ فِي الْجَنَّةِ
It is a proof for the people of the prophetic tradition (sunnah), that those who commit major sins will not remain in the Hellfire forever. If they enter it, they will be taken out and eventually admitted into Paradise.
Source: Sharḥ Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 94
This is an indication of the mercy of Allah and his great wisdom, yet it is a concession that we should not take for granted. Some of the Jews and Christians used this as an excuse to continue committing their sins, saying that they would only have to endure Hellfire for a short while.
Allah said:
وَقَالُوا لَن تَمَسَّنَا النَّارُ إِلَّا أَيَّامًا مَّعْدُودَةً ۚ قُلْ أَتَّخَذْتُمْ عِندَ اللَّهِ عَهْدًا فَلَن يُخْلِفَ اللَّهُ عَهْدَهُ ۖ أَمْ تَقُولُونَ عَلَى اللَّهِ مَا لَا تَعْلَمُونَ
They say: Never will the Hellfire touch us, except for a number of days. Say: Have you taken a covenant with Allah? For Allah will never break His covenant. Or do you say about Allah that which you do not know?
Surat al-Baqarah 2:80
And Allah said:
ذَٰلِكَ بِأَنَّهُمْ قَالُوا لَن تَمَسَّنَا النَّارُ إِلَّا أَيَّامًا مَّعْدُودَاتٍ ۖ وَغَرَّهُمْ فِي دِينِهِم مَّا كَانُوا يَفْتَرُونَ
That is because they say: Never will the Hellfire touch us, except for a number of days. They became deluded in their religion because of what they fabricated.
Surat Ali Imran 3:24
Indeed, some of the Muslims say the same to themselves to rationalize their sins. But we should know that a single moment in the Hellfire is worse than any amount of pleasure we can get out of the world. A person will be dipped in Hellfire only once and due to that pain will forget every good thing he or she ever experienced.
Anas ibn Malik reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:
يُؤْتَى بِأَنْعَمِ أَهْلِ الدُّنْيَا مِنْ أَهْلِ النَّارِ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ فَيُصْبَغُ فِي النَّارِ صَبْغَةً ثُمَّ يُقَالُ يَا ابْنَ آدَمَ هَلْ رَأَيْتَ خَيْرًا قَطُّ هَلْ مَرَّ بِكَ نَعِيمٌ قَطُّ فَيَقُولُ لَا وَاللَّهِ يَا رَبِّ
The most privileged people in the world among the people of the Hellfire will come on the Day of Resurrection to be dipped in the Hellfire, then it will be said: O son of Adam, did you see any good? Did you get any blessing? He will say: No, by Allah, my Lord!
Source: Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 2807, Grade: Sahih
If someone cannot stand even a single moment in Hellfire, then what would it be worth to stay there for one year? Or a hundred years? Or a thousand years? How can a thousand years in Hellfire be described as anything other than an eternity, even if it eventually comes to an end?
Scholars who believe in the eternity of punishment in Hellfire are understandably cautious about overemphasizing the mercy of Allah, since some people will abuse this mercy to commit evil.
However, other scholars cite evidence that indicates all people will eventually come out of the Hellfire. A number of verses appear to limit the length of Hellfire, leaving it up to the judgment of Allah.
Allah said:
قَالَ النَّارُ مَثْوَاكُمْ خَالِدِينَ فِيهَا إِلَّا مَا شَاءَ اللَّهُ ۗ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ حَكِيمٌ عَلِيمٌ
The Hellfire is your residence, wherein you will remain except as Allah wills. Verily, your Lord is wise and knowing.
Surat al-An’am 6:128
And Allah said:
فَأَمَّا الَّذِينَ شَقُوا فَفِي النَّارِ لَهُمْ فِيهَا زَفِيرٌ وَشَهِيقٌ خَالِدِينَ فِيهَا مَا دَامَتِ السَّمَاوَاتُ وَالْأَرْضُ إِلَّا مَا شَاءَ رَبُّكَ ۚ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ فَعَّالٌ لِّمَا يُرِيدُ
As for those who were wretched, they will be in the Hellfire. For them therein is violent exhaling and inhaling, abiding therein as long as the heavens and the earth endure, except as your Lord wills.Surat Hud 11:106-107
And Allah said:
إِنَّ جَهَنَّمَ كَانَتْ مِرْصَادًا لِّلطَّاغِينَ مَآبًا لَّابِثِينَ فِيهَا أَحْقَابً
Verily, Hell has been lying in wait for the transgressors, a place of return, in which they will remain for ages.
Surat al-Naba 78:21-23
At-Tabari records that the mitigating phrases used in these verses were interpreted by some of the early Muslims to include everyone who will ever enter Hellfire, not only Muslims or monotheists.
Abdullah ibn Mas’ud, may Allah be pleased with him, said:
لَيَأْتِيَنَّ عَلَى جَهَنَّمَ زَمَانٌ تُخْفِقُ أَبْوَابُهَا لَيْسَ فِيهَا أَحَدٌ وَذَلِكَ بَعْدَ مَا يَلْبَثُونَ فِيهَا أَحْقَابًا
There will come a time when the doors of Hell are blown open and there will be no one left in it. That is after they remain therein for ages.
Source: Tafsīr al-Ṭabarī 11:107
Those who accepted this view also observed that Allah frequently mentioned the uninterrupted reward of the people of Paradise, but he did not use similar phrases to describe the punishment of Hellfire. In other words, it is confirmed that Paradise is eternal and will last forever, while the same question about Hellfire is left unanswered.
Ibn Zaid, may Allah be pleased with him, said:
وَأَخْبَرَنَا بِالَّذِي يَشَاءُ لِأَهْلِ الْجَنَّةِ فَقَالَ عَطَاءً غَيْرَ مَجْذُوذٍ وَلَمْ يُخْبِرْنَا بِالَّذِي يَشَاءُ لِأَهْلِ النَّارِ
Allah informed us of what he wills for the people of Paradise, so he said: A gift without end*. (11:108) And he did not tell us of what he wills for the people of Hellfire.*
Source: Tafsīr al-Ṭabarī 11:107
Hence, whenever the Quran says “they will abide therein” (khālidīin fīha), it is implicitly limited to however long Allah wills it to be. Their remaining in Hellfire “forever” is a rhetorical device, meaning they will be in it for ages and ages, and it does not literally mean for all of eternity.At-Tabari records that some companions of the Prophet said:
فِي قَوْلِهِ إِلَّا مَا شَاءَ رَبُّكَ قَالَ هَذِهِ الْآيَةُ تَأْتِي عَلَى الْقُرْآنِ كُلِّهِ يَقُولُ حَيْثُ كَانَ فِي الْقُرْآنِ خَالِدِينَ فِيهَا تَأْتِي عَلَيْهِ
In his saying: Except as your Lord wills (11:107), this verse covers the entire Quran. Wherever it says in the Quran that they will abide therein, it has this meaning.
Source: Tafsīr al-Ṭabarī 11:107
Ibn Al-Qayyim writes:
ولكن مجرد ذكر الخلود والتأبيد لا يقتضي عدم النهاية بل الخلود هو المكث الطويل
If someone cannot stand even a single moment in Hellfire, then what would it be worth to stay there for one year? Or a hundred years? Or a thousand years? How can a thousand years in Hellfire be described as anything other than an eternity, even if it eventually comes to an end?
Source: Shifā’ al-‘Alīl 1/257
The Prophet also informed us that there will be some people for whom Allah himself will intercede and take them out of the Hellfire. They will eventually be admitted into Paradise to spend eternity therein even though they never did any good deeds at all.
Abu Sa’eed reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:
فَيَقُولُ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ شَفَعَتْ الْمَلَائِكَةُ وَشَفَعَ النَّبِيُّونَ وَشَفَعَ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ وَلَمْ يَبْقَ إِلَّا أَرْحَمُ الرَّاحِمِينَ فَيَقْبِضُ قَبْضَةً مِنْ النَّارِ فَيُخْرِجُ مِنْهَا قَوْمًا لَمْ يَعْمَلُوا خَيْرًا قَطُّ قَدْ عَادُوا حُمَمًا فَيُلْقِيهِمْ فِي نَهَرٍ فِي أَفْوَاهِ الْجَنَّةِ يُقَالُ لَهُ نَهَرُ الْحَيَاةِ فَيَخْرُجُونَ كَمَا تَخْرُج الحبة في حميل السيل ألا ترونها تكون إلى الحجر أو إلى الشجر ما يكون إلى الشمس أصيفر وأخيضر وما يكون منها إلى الظل يكون أبيض
Allah the Exalted will say: The angels have interceded, the prophets have interceded, the believers have interceded, and none remains to intercede but the Most Merciful of the merciful. He will take a handful from the Hellfire and bring people out of it who never did any good and who had been turned into charcoal. He will cast them into a river named the River of Life on the outskirts of Paradise. They will come out as a seed comes cut from the silt carried by the flood. You see it near a stone or tree. Whatever is exposed to the sun is yellow or green, and whatever is under the shade is white.
They said, “O Messenger of Allah, it seems as if you have been tending a flock in the jungle.” The Prophet continued:
فَيَخْرُجُونَ كَاللُّؤْلُؤِ فِي رِقَابِهِمْ الْخَوَاتِمُ يَعْرِفُهُمْ أَهْلُ الْجَنَّةِ هَؤُلَاءِ عُتَقَاءُ اللَّهِ الَّذِينَ أَدْخَلَهُمْ اللَّهُ الْجَنَّةَ بِغَيْرِ عَمَلٍ عَمِلُوهُ وَلَا خَيْرٍ قَدَّمُوهُ ثُمَّ يَقُولُ ادْخُلُوا الْجَنَّةَ فَمَا رَأَيْتُمُوهُ فَهُوَ لَكُمْ فَيَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَا أَعْطَيْتَنَا مَا لَمْ تُعْطِ أَحَدًا مِنْ الْعَالَمِينَ فَيَقُول لكم عندي أفضل من هذا فيقولون يا ربنا أي شيء أفضل من هذا فيقول رضاي فلا أسخط عليكم بعده أبدا
They will come out like pearls with seals on their necks. The people of Paradise will recognize them and say: They are those who have been freed by Allah, whom Allah has admitted into Paradise without any good deeds they have done nor any good they put forward. Then Allah will say: Enter Paradise and whatever you see therein is yours. They will say: O Lord, you have given us favors that you have not given anyone else among the worlds. Allah will say: I have a favor better than this. They will say: O Lord, what thing could be better than this? Allah will say: It is my satisfaction, for I will never be angry with you after this.
Source: Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 183, Grade: Sahih
We can understand from this tradition that the purpose of Hellfire is to cleanse people of their sins and prepare them for a life of purity in Paradise. It is not simply punishment for the sake of punishment. If there is such hope that even the worst of the worst will eventually enter Paradise, then how about those who have done at least some good deeds in their lives?
Ibn Al-Qayyim mentions the arguments of scholars who believe that the punishment of Hellfire will eventually come to an end. In a long chapter, he details twenty five points and pieces of evidence they used to support this interpretation, among them an emphasis on the mercy of Allah and his wisdom.
Ibn Al-Qayyim writes:
النار خلقت تخويفا للمؤمنين وتطهيرا للخاطئين والمجرمين فهي طهرة من الخبث الذي اكتسبته النفس في هذا العالم فان تطهرت هاهنا بالتوبة النصوح والحسنات الماحية والمصائب المكفرة
The Hellfire was created to intimidate the believers and to purify the sinners and criminals. It is a means of purity from filth earned by souls in this world. It is purified in this world by means of repentance, sincerity, good deeds, atonement, calamities, and expiations.
Source: Ḥādī al-Arwāḥ 1/367
And he writes:
العفو أحب إليه سبحانه من الانتقام والرحمة أحب إليه من العقوبة والرضا أحب إليه من الغضب والفضل أحب إليه من العدل
Forgiveness is more beloved to Allah the Exalted than vengeance, mercy is more beloved to him than punishment, satisfaction is more beloved to him than anger, and favor is more beloved to him than justice.
Source: Ḥādī al-Arwāḥ 1/372
And he writes:
أنه سبحانه وتعالى اخبر إن رحمته وسعت كل شيء فليس شيء من الأشياء إلا وفيه رحمته ولا ينافي هذا
Allah the Exalted informed us that his mercy encompasses all things and there is nothing at all but that his mercy is in it and this has not been nullified.
Source: Ḥādī al-Arwāḥ 1/376
And he writes:
أنه ليس في حكمة احكم الحاكمين إن يخلق خلقا يعذبهم ابد الآباد عذابا سرمدا لا نهاية له ولا انقطاع أبدا
It is not befitting the wisdom of the Most Wise of judges that he would create someone to punish forever and ever in eternal punishment without any end or disruption.
Source: Ḥādī al-Arwāḥ 1/378
Ibn Al-Qayyim seemed to be sympathetic to this view, although he never fully endorses it. This view has always been a minority position in Islamic theology although, as he has definitively shown, it is not without a valid basis.
In the end, only Allah knows what will really happen on the Day of Resurrection and how he will deal with the sinners among his creation. We can only interpret the evidence of revelation in the best way we can, as the true extent of the reality of the Hereafter is unknown to us. What we do know for sure is that Allah is just, wise, and merciful. His justice, wisdom, and mercy will be fulfilled in the Hereafter in ways we cannot even imagine.
Success comes from Allah, and Allah knows best.
My Comments:
Firstly in a Hadith Qudsi Allah tells us that his mercy prevails over his wrath:
" لَمَّا قَضَى اللَّهُ الْخَلْقَ، كَتَبَ فِي كِتَابِهِ عَلَى نَفْسِهِ، فَهُوَ مَوْضُوعٌ عِنْدَهُ: إِنَّ رَحْمَتِي تَغْلِبُ غَضَبِي"
On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), who said that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:
When Allah decreed the Creation He pledged Himself by writing in His book which is laid down with Him: My mercy prevails over my wrath. It was related by Muslim (also by al-Bukhari, an-Nasa'i and Ibn Majah).
Source: 40 Hadith Qudsi, Hadith 1
For those wondering the difference between regular ahadith and Hadith Qudsi, Ustadh Tabraze Azam states:
A Sacred Narration (al-Hadith al-Qudsi) is a narration (hadith) which, from the perspective of its meaning, is from Allah, the Exalted, and from the perspective of its wording, from the Messenger of God (Allah bless him and give him peace). [Jurjani, al-Ta`rifat]
The Sacred Narration (al-Hadith al-Qudsi) is attributed to Allah, Most High, and related from Him. The Messenger of God (Allah bless him and give him peace) would receive the meaning from Allah, by way of inspiration or dream, and then he (Allah bless him and give him peace) would inform his community of this in his own words.
This is contrary to the remaining narrations (hadith) as the Messenger of God (Allah bless him and give him peace) would not attribute them to His Lord, nor relate them from Him
Secondly, when Ibn Qayyim(rh) said:
أنه سبحانه وتعالى اخبر إن رحمته وسعت كل شيء فليس شيء من الأشياء إلا وفيه رحمته ولا ينافي هذا
Allah the Exalted informed us that his mercy encompasses all things and there is nothing at all but that his mercy is in it and this has not been nullified.
Source: Ḥādī al-Arwāḥ 1/376
It is referencing this ayah:
[7:157]
وَ اکۡتُبۡ لَنَا فِیۡ ہٰذِہِ الدُّنۡیَا حَسَنَۃً وَّ فِی الۡاٰخِرَۃِ اِنَّا ہُدۡنَاۤ اِلَیۡکَ ؕ قَالَ عَذَابِیۡۤ اُصِیۡبُ بِہٖ مَنۡ اَشَآءُ ۚ وَ رَحۡمَتِیۡ وَسِعَتۡ کُلَّ شَیۡءٍ ؕ فَسَاَکۡتُبُہَا لِلَّذِیۡنَ یَتَّقُوۡنَ وَ یُؤۡتُوۡنَ الزَّکٰوۃَ وَ الَّذِیۡنَ ہُمۡ بِاٰیٰتِنَا یُؤۡمِنُوۡنَ ﴿۱۵۷﴾ۚ
ENGLISH‘And ordain for us good in this world, as well as in the next; we have turned to Thee with repentance.’ God replied, ‘I will inflict My punishment on whom I will; but My mercy encompasses all things; so I will ordain it for those who act righteously, and pay the Zakat and those who believe in Our Signs —
Thirdly I would like to commentate on when Abu Amina Elias stated that this was a minority opinion:
This view has always been a minority position in Islamic theology although, as he has definitively shown**, it is not without a valid basis.**
Just because this is a minority opinion does not mean it is wrong. For example throughout Islamic Theology most scholars thought that Isa(as) was alive however many influential scholars believed he was alive. Also, note the part where it states that there is a valid basis for this in Islam. Now the reason we believe in this minority opinion is that it is right as the Hakam, Hadrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad( عليه السلام) confirmed that this opinion was right.

5. The View of the Hakam Adl'The Saying of the Hakam Adl'an( Just Judge)

The Promised Messiah( عليه السلام) was supposed to be a Just Judge judging on Islamic Ideas on the basis if they were correct or not:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
حَدَّثَنَا إِسْحَاقُ، أَخْبَرَنَا يَعْقُوبُ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ، حَدَّثَنَا أَبِي، عَنْ صَالِحٍ، عَنِ ابْنِ شِهَابٍ، أَنَّ سَعِيدَ بْنَ الْمُسَيَّبِ، سَمِعَ أَبَا هُرَيْرَةَ ـ رضى الله عنه ـ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏"‏ وَالَّذِي نَفْسِي بِيَدِهِ، لَيُوشِكَنَّ أَنْ يَنْزِلَ فِيكُمُ ابْنُ مَرْيَمَ حَكَمًا عَدْلاً، فَيَكْسِرَ الصَّلِيبَ، وَيَقْتُلَ الْخِنْزِيرَ، وَيَضَعَ الْجِزْيَةَ، وَيَفِيضَ الْمَالُ حَتَّى لاَ يَقْبَلَهُ أَحَدٌ، حَتَّى تَكُونَ السَّجْدَةُ الْوَاحِدَةُ خَيْرًا مِنَ الدُّنْيَا وَمَا فِيهَا ‏"‏‏.‏ ثُمَّ يَقُولُ أَبُو هُرَيْرَةَ وَاقْرَءُوا إِنْ شِئْتُمْ ‏{‏وَإِنْ مِنْ أَهْلِ الْكِتَابِ إِلاَّ لَيُؤْمِنَنَّ بِهِ قَبْلَ مَوْتِهِ وَيَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ يَكُونُ عَلَيْهِمْ شَهِيدًا‏}‏‏.‏
Allah's Apostle ﷺ said, "By Him in Whose Hands my soul is, surely (Jesus,) the son of Mary will soon descend amongst you and will judge mankind justly (as a Just Ruler),he will break the Cross and kill the pigs and there will be no Jizya (i.e. taxation taken from non Muslims). Money will be in abundance so that nobody will accept it, and a single prostration to Allah (in prayer) will be better than the whole world and whatever is in it." Abu Huraira added "If you wish, you can recite (this verse of the Holy Book): -- 'And there is none Of the people of the Scriptures (Jews and Christians) But must believe in him (i.e Jesus as an Apostle of Allah and a human being) Before his death. And on the Day of Judgment He will be a witness Against them." (4.159) (See Fateh Al Bari, Page 302 Vol 7)

Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad ( عليه السلام) writes on his the differences in Islam and role as a Hakam:
بلکہؔ اصل بات یہ ہے کہ قرونِ ثلاثہ کے بعد اُمّت مرحومہ تہتّر فرقوں پرمنقسم ہو گئی اور صدہا مختلف قسم کے عقائد ایک دوسرے کے مخالف اُن میں پھیل گئے یہاں تک کہ یہ عقائد کہ مہدی ظاہر ہوگا اور مسیح آئے گا اِن میں بھی ایک بات پر متفق نہ رہے۔ چنانچہ شیعوں کا مہدی تو ایک غار میں پوشیدہ ہے جس کے پاس اصل قرآن شریف ہے وہ اُس وقت ظاہر ہوگا جبکہ صحابہ رضی اللہ عنہم بھی نئے سرے زندہ کئے جاویں گے اور وہ اُن سے غصب خلافت کا انتقام لے گا۔ اور سُنّیوں کا مہدی بھی بقول اُن کے قطعی طور پر کسی خاندان میں سے پیدا ہونے والا نہیں اور نہ قطعی طور پر عیسیٰ کے زمانہ میں ظاہر ہونے والا ہے۔ بعض کہتے ہیں کہ بنی فاطمہ میں سے پیدا ہوگا۔ اور بعض کا قول ہے کہ بنی عباس میں سے ہوگا۔ اور بعض کا بموجب ایک حدیث کے یہ خیال ہے کہ اُمّت میں سے ایک آدمی ہے۔ پھر بعض کہتے ہیں کہ مہدی کا آنا وسط زمانہ میں ضرور ہے اور مسیح موعود بعد اس کے آئے گا۔ اور اس پر احادیث پیش کرتے ہیں۔ اور بعض کا یہ قول ہے کہ مسیح اور مہدی دو جُدا جُدا آدمی نہیں بلکہ وہی مسیح مہدی ہے۔ اور اِس قول پر لامہدی الّا عیسٰی کی حدیث پیش کرتے ہیں۔ پھر دجّال کی نسبت بعض کا خیال ہے کہ ابن صیّاد ہی دجّال*ہے اور وہ مخفی ہے اخیر زمانہ میں ظاہر ہوگا حالانکہ وہ بے چارہ مسلمان ہو چکا اور اس کی موت اسلام پر ہوئی اور مسلمانوں نے اُس کا جنازہ پڑھا۔ اور بعض کا قول ہے کہ دجّال کلیسیا میں قید ہے یعنی کسی گرجا میں محبوس ہے اور آخر اسی میں سے نکلے گا۔ یہ آخری قول تو صحیح تھا مگر افسوس کہ اس کے معنی باوجود واضح ہونے کے بگاڑ دئے گئے۔ اِس میں کیا شک ہے کہ دجّال جس سے مراد عیسائیت کا بھوت ہے ایک مُدّت تک گرجا میں قید رہا ہے اور اپنے دجّالی تصرّفات سے رُکا رہا ہے مگر
اب آخری زمانہ میں اس نے قید سے پوری رہائی پائی ہے اور اُس کی مُشکیں کھولی گئی ہیں تا جو جو حملے کرنا اُس کی تقدیر میں ہے کر گذرے۔ اور بعض کا خیال ہے کہ دجّال نوع انسان میں سے نہیں بلکہ شیطان کا نام ہے۔* اور بعض حضرت عیسیٰ کی نسبت خیال رکھتے ہیں کہ وہ زندہ آسمان پر موجود ہے اور بعض فرقے مسلمانوں کے جنہیں معتزلہ کہتے ہیں حضرت عیسیٰ کی موت کے قائل ہیں اور بعض صُوفیوں کا قدیمؔ سے یہ مذہب ہے کہ مسیح آنے والے سے مراد کوئی اُمّتی انسان ہے کہ جو اِسی اُمّت میں سے پیدا ہوگا۔ اب ذرا غور کرکے دیکھ لو کہ مسیح اور مہدی اور دجّال کے بارے میں کس قدر اس اُمّت میں اختلاف موجود ہے اور بموجب آیت 3۱؂ ہر ایک اپنے عقیدہ کی نسبت اجماع کا دعویٰ کر رہا ہے پس اصل بات یہ ہے کہ جب کسی شریعت میں بہت سے اختلاف پیدا ہو جائیں تو وہی اختلافات طبعًا چاہتے ہیں کہ اُن کے تصفیہ کے لئے کوئی شخص خدا کی طرف سے آوے کیونکہ یہی قدیم سے سُنّت اللہ ہے۔ جب یہودیوں میں بہت سے اختلافات پیدا ہوئے تو اُن کے لئے حضرت عیسیٰ حَکَمْ بن کر آئے۔ اور جب عیسائیوں اور یہودیوں کے باہمی تنازعات بڑھ گئے تو اُن کے لئے آنحضرت صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم خدا تعالیٰ کی طرف سے حَکَمْ مقرر ہو کر مبعوث ہوئے۔
اب اِس زمانہ میں دنیا اختلافات سے بھر گئی۔ ایک طرف یہودی کچھ کہتے ہیں اور عیسائی کچھ ظاہر کرتے ہیں اور اُمّتِ محمدیہ میں الگ باہمی اختلافات ہیں۔ اور دوسرے مشرکین سب کے برخلاف رائیں ظاہر کرتے ہیں اور اس قدر نئے مذاہب اور نئے عقائد پیدا ہو گئے ہیں کہ گویا ہر ایک انسان ایک خاص مذہب رکھتا ہے۔ اِس لئے بموجب سُنّت اللہ کے ضروری تھا کہ ان سب اختلافات کا تصفیہ کرنے کے لئے کوئی حَکَمْ آتا۔ سو اسی حَکَمْ کا نام مسیح موعود اور مہدی مسعود رکھا گیا یعنی باعتبار خارجی نزاعوں کے تصفیہ کے اس کا نام مسیح ٹھہرا اور باعتبار اندرونی جھگڑوں کے فیصلہ کرنے کے اس کو مہدی معہود کرکے پکارا گیا۔ اگرچہ اس بارے میں سُنّت اللہ اس قدر متواتر تھی کہ کچھ ضرور نہ تھا کہ حدیثوں کے ذریعہ سے یہ ظاہر کیا جاتا کہ ایک شخص حَکَمْ ہو کر آئے گا جس کا نام مسیح ہوگا لیکن حدیثوں میں یہ پیشگوئی موجود ہے کہ وہ مسیح موعود جو اِسی اُمّت میں سے ہوگا وہ خدا تعالیٰ کی طرف سے حَکَمْ ہو گایعنی جس قدر اختلافات داخلی اور خارجی موجود ہیں اُن کو دور کرنے کے لئے خدا اُسے بھیجے گا۔ اور وہی عقیدہ سچا ہوگا جس پر وہ قائم کیا جائے گا۔ کیونکہ خدا اُسے راستی پر قائم کرے گا اور وہ جو کچھ کہے گا بصیرت سے کہے گا اور کسی فرقہ کا حق نہیں ہوگا کہ اپنے عقیدہ کےؔ اختلاف کی وجہ سے اس سے بحث کرے کیونکہ اُس زمانہ میں مختلف عقائد کے باعث منقولی مسائل جن کی قرآن شریف میں تصریح نہیں مشتبہ ہو جائیں گے اور بباعث کثرت اختلافات تمام اندرونی طور پر جھگڑنے والے یا بیرونی طور پر اختلاف کرنے والے ایک حَکَمْ کے محتاج ہوں گے جو آسمانی شہادت سے اپنی سچائی ظاہر کرے گا جیسا کہ حضرت عیسیٰ کے وقت میں ہوا اور پھر بعد اس کے آنحضرت صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کے وقت میں ہوا سو آخری موعود کے وقت میں بھی ایسا ہی ہوگا۔
(روحانی خزائن، جلد ۲۲،حقیقة الوحی، صفحہ ۴۴ تا ۴۶)
The truth of the matter is that after the passage of the first three centuries, the blessed ummah split into seventy-three sects and hundreds of mutually contradictory beliefs took root among them to the extent that they were no longer in agreement even regarding such beliefs as the appearance of the Mahdi and the coming of the Messiah.
For example, the Mahdi of the Shias is hidden in a cave and he has the original Holy Quran. He will appear at a time when the Companions, Allah be pleased with them, will also be brought back to life, and he will take revenge from them for the usurpation of the Khilafat (from Hadrat ‘Ali ra).Likewise, with reference to the Mahdi of the Sunnis, based upon their statements, it is not certain that he will be born to a particular family, nor is it certain that he will appear in the time of ‘Isa. Some say that he will be born from among the Fatimids, and some say that he will be from among the Abbasids. Still others opine, on the basis of a hadith, that he is a man from the ummah in general.
Then again, some say that the advent of the Mahdi must occur in the middle period, and the Promised Messiah will come after him and they quote ahadith to support this. Others say that the Messiah and Mahdi are not two distinct individuals, but that very Messiah is the Mahdi. To validate this contention they quote the hadith لا مهدى إَّل عیسٰی [There is no Mahdi except ‘Isa].
As for the Dajjal, some are of the view that Ibn Sayyad, indeed, is the Dajjal and he is in hiding, and shall emerge in the Latter Days; when in truth that poor fellow had converted to Islam and died a Muslim, and his funeral prayer was offered by the Muslims. And some say that the Dajjal is imprisoned in a church; meaning that, he is detained in some chapel and will ultimately emerge from it. This last statement was indeed correct, but it is regrettable that its meanings, despite being very obvious, were distorted. Is there any doubt that the Dajjal, which refers to the demon of Christianity, has remained incarcerated within the Church for a long time, and has withheld its deceptive machinations, but has now, in the Latter Days, attained complete freedom and its shackles have been removed so that it may unleash all of the attacks destined for it?
And some think the Dajjal is not from the human race, rather it is a name for Satan.And some believe that Hadrat ‘Isa is still alive in Heaven while some Muslim sects called the Mu‘tazilah believe in the death of Hadrat ‘Isa. Some sufis have long believed that the awaited Messiah refers to an ummatī [i.e. a follower of the Holy Prophet sa] who will be born from within this ummah.Now just ponder a little and see how much disagreement exists within this ummah regarding the Messiah, the Mahdi, and the Dajjal, and everyone claims ijma‘ for his own belief, in accordance with the verse:
كُلُّ حِزْبٍۭ بِمَا لَدَيْهِمْ فَرِحُوْنَ
The truth of the matter is that when numerous disagreements arise in any shariah [a religious law], these very disagreements inherently demand that someone should come from God to resolve them, for this indeed is the way of Allah since time immemorial. When many differences arose among the Jews, Hadrat ‘Isa came as the arbiter for them; when disputes between the Jews and the Christians intensified, the Holy Prophet, may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, was sent by God, appointed as the arbiter for them.
Now, in this age, the world is brimming with disagreements. The Jews say one thing, whereas the Christians profess another, and aside from this, the ummah of Muhammad is mired in internal conflicts. Meanwhile, the idolaters present their opinions against all of the others. So many new religions and beliefs have arisen that everyone seems to be practicing their own unique brand of religion. Therefore, in conformity with the established practice of Allah, it was essential that a hakam [arbiter] should have come to settle all of these disputes.
Hence, that very hakam was bestowed the titles ‘the Promised Messiah’ and ‘the Blessed Mahdi’; meaning that, he was deemed to be the Messiah on account of resolving external disputes and he was proclaimed the destined Mahdi on account of settling the internal conflicts.Although the established practice of Allah concerning this had been so consistent that it was not necessary to express through ahadith that a person would appear as the hakam, whose title would be Masih; yet, this prophecy is found in the ahadith that the Promised Messiah, who will be from within this very ummah, will be the hakam appointed by God Almighty; meaning that, God will send him to remove all disagreements, internal and external, that exist. The belief upon which he will be established will be the true belief, because God would establish him upon truth, and whatever he would say, he would say with divinely bestowed insight. Further, no sect would have the right to dispute with him on the basis of their own different belief, because in that age, due to conflicting beliefs, the precepts handed down that are not expounded in the Holy Quran, would become suspect.
Moreover, on account of the widespread differences, all of the disputants from within or opponents from the outside would be in need of a hakam who would establish his truth through heavenly testimony just as it happened in the time of Hadrat ‘Isa, and thereafter, in the time of the Holy Prophet, may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him. The very same would also occur in the time of the last Promised One.

Hadrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad( عليه السلام) stated on whether hell is or eternal or not:
It is unreasonable and contrary to the perfect attributes of God to think that, after He has condemned someone to Hell, His awe-inspiring attributes should continue to manifest themselves forever while the attributes of compassion and forgiveness should remain dormant, and His benevolence and mercy should become forever suspended. On the contrary, we know from what God says in His Book that the inmates of Hell will dwell in it for a long time—which has metaphorically been called 'eternity' in view of human weakness—but the attribute of mercy and kindness shall thereafter manifest itself and God shall put His Hand into Hell and take out as many as it will hold. This Hadith also shows that salvation will be granted to all for the Hand of God is infinite like Himself, and no one will be left out of it.Source: (Chashma Masihi, Fountain of Christianity pg 45-46)

6. Is Hell Fair?

We, as Humans, chose the test so it is our fault:
[33:73]اِنَّا عَرَضۡنَا الۡاَمَانَۃَ عَلَی السَّمٰوٰتِ وَ الۡاَرۡضِ وَ الۡجِبَالِ فَاَبَیۡنَ اَنۡ یَّحۡمِلۡنَہَا وَ اَشۡفَقۡنَ مِنۡہَا وَ حَمَلَہَا الۡاِنۡسَانُ ؕ اِنَّہٗ کَانَ ظَلُوۡمًا جَہُوۡلًا ﴿ۙ۷۳﴾ENGLISHVerily, We offered the Trust to the heavens and the earth and the mountains, but they refused to bear it and were afraid of it. But man bore it. Indeed, he is capable of being unjust to, and neglectful of, himself.

7. Conclusion

Hell is not eternal on the basis of the Holy Quran, the Sunnah, and views of the Prophet’s companions, early Muslims, and the Hakam, Hadrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad ( عليه السلام )

2019.11.03 16:04 xugan97 Refuting smears against Tulsi

There appears to be an immense amount of animus directed at Tulsi - she is over-scrutinized, persistently attacked, held to more severe standards, required to meet moving goalposts, etc. The vast majority of criticisms are not of policy, but rather ad hominem attacks of the type Guilt by association and its particular form, McCarthyism. In a third part, we look at genuine criticisms of Tulsi's positions.

Part 1: Guilt by association

Links to Hindu nationalists

The objection -
Tulsi is made out to be an agent of the Indian Hindu Right (the RSS, BJP and Modi.) The primary articles are:
Explanation -
Indian American supporters - Tulsi has often courted the Hindu and Indian-American communities. Fundraising off some religious or ethnic group is hardly unusual in the US. The part of the community that reciprocated most enthusiastically is a vocal, affluent, and well-organized group of Indian-Americans who are also fans of the Indian BJP party.
Tulsi is not associated with any Hindu nationalist group or ideology. She has attended events organized by American Hindu groups - these groups are little more than Hindu advocacy groups. She has made awkward attempts to distance herself from such groups, for instance, by skipping the "World Hindu Congress" in 2018.
Indo-US relations, or Why the BJP likes Tulsi - Tulsi has been involved in Indo-US affairs for a long time. She is a co-chair of the Congressional Caucus on India and Indian Americans. She has met various Indian politicians of both ruling and opposition parties in multiple trips to India. The BJP's interest in Tulsi can be explained simply as an extension of positive Indo-US relations. Besides, there may be the perception that Tulsi is pro-India or pro-Hindu. Tulsi's foreing policy is neutral, and recognizes India's immense importance without being prejudiced towards India.
Are Hindu nationalist groups bad? Hindu nationalist groups are right-wing, but not necessarily disreputable. The genuinely ideological Hindu groups are: (1) BJP, (the ruling political party in India,) (2) Narendra Modi, (the Indian Prime Minister, the face of the BJP, and popular demagogue) (3) the "Sangh Parivar", (several Indian organizations that share BJP's Hindu nationalist ideology,) and (4) their American offshoots, supporters and fans.
Most of these groups are moderate, law-abiding and respectable. However, some specific groups are more extreme: they are known to have engaged in rioting and bloodshed, and Modi himself was once accused of the same thing. The American offshoots are little more than obscure advocacy groups with little or no connections to their hardline Indian counterparts.
Is Modi bad? - Not many understand what in the Gujarat 2002 riots. I believe that Tulsi does not either - she recently made a faux pas by defending with: "Do you know what instigated those riots?" The simple answer is that Modi was cleared by a Supreme Court monitored investigation, and never even indicted. This is an objective answer that all international leaders accept. However, a glance at Wikipedia or news reports of the time suggest culpability, and that is what liberals emphasize. It was with good reason that the West declared Modi a 'persona non grata' for a period of a decade after the event.
Modi is now pretty much considered to be squeaky clean and diplomatically important. In his two terms as Prime Minister, he has visited every country, met every political leader, and even addressed the US Congress and the UK parliament.
Tulsi on her funding:
The contributions I get from my campaign come from American citizens. What you're doing right now is levelling a criticism against American citizens who happen to be Hindus who are involved in our democratic process here. I'm proud to have support for my campaign from Americans all across this country who are Hindus Muslims Christians atheists Catholics Buddhists, all across the board. They understand and know that my allegiance to and my mission is to serve our country and to serve the American people. ... Tulsi Gabbard Shuts Down Brainwashed Consumer of Corporate Media
Tulsi on being partial to the BJP/RSS:
Both in India and here in the US, I have held meetings with members of both the BJP and the Congress Party. As a member of the US Congress, my interest is in helping produce a closer relationship between the United States and India, not just between the United States and one political party of India. I have no affiliation with the RSS. Sometimes people on both sides, for their own purposes, try to say I somehow favor, or am part, of the BJP or take photos of me at Indian events and circulate them for their own promotional reasons. But the fact is, I’m not partial to BJP, the Congress Party, or any other particular political party in India. ...

Links to white supremacists and Trump supporters

The objection -
It has been seen for a while that Tulsi receives support from the who's who of white supremacists, the alt-right, the right-wing media, and the Trump administration. For examples, see e.g. Why Conservative Media and the Far Right Love Tulsi Gabbard for President
Explanation -
Speaking to everybody regardless of their political beliefs is a major part of Tulsi's platform. Just as Bernie is able to unite all Americans around economic issues, Tulsi does the same on the cultural front.
In contrast, ideologically-driven Liberals will not concede an inch to the other side. They also think Trump is the entire problem, along with anyone or anything that enables Trump. That is why liberals are surprised and even angry that someone resonates with the other side as well.
Tulsi refuses to use alienating terms like "deplorables", instead flipping it around to #UnusualAmericans. Meghan McCain, on The View (6th Nov) said, "I think the reason why so many Republicans respond to you is that you don't treat us like we are garbage."
I have strongly denounced David Duke’s hateful views and his so-called ‘support’ multiple times in the past, and reject his support. ... Tulsi Gabbard denounces David Duke, rejects his endorsement.
I don't make my decisions on policies based on who agrees with me, or who disagrees with me or who likes me, who doesn't like me, what party they are a part of or anything else. And frankly the premise of the question is such that it creates the situation where I would be in a position of saying - Okay, well if David Duke or white supremacists are against regime change wars maybe I should be for them. If they are for protecting our environment maybe I should be against protecting our environment. ... video - Q&A
When I look out at our country I don't see "deplorables." I see fellow Americans people who I treat with respect even when we disagree and when we disagree strongly. ... October debate closing statements.

Cult business

The objection -
Tulsi appears to have a long association with a religious teacher called Chris Butler whose group has cultish features. A long hit piece written in conspiratorial undertones is: Tulsi Gabbard Had a Very Strange Childhood.
Explanation -
Tulsi has received initiation into Hinduism in the Gaudiya Vaishnava lineage (aka ISKON or "Hare Krishna") from Chris Butler. She continues to be a practicing Hindu to this day in the same tradition, and often shows up at ISKON festivals. The central text of that tradition, the Bhagavad Gita has been Tulsi's constant companion since her deployment to the Middle East. That copy of the book is also what she used for her swearing-in. It is no coincidence that her motto of "aloha" and "service above self" looks a lot like the Karma Yoga of the Bhagavad Gita. She is spiritual rather than strictly religious.
This spirit of putting love into action (karma yoga) is also the essence of what is called "aloha". Karma yoga (aloha) is central to the teachings of both the Bhagavad-Gita and the New Testament. Love isn't inactive: it’s not just a sentiment. Love is a motivating force that propels you into action. That's why I have made aloha a central focus of my campaign. ... My Spiritual Path
The spirit of karma yoga is nicely described by Mahatma Gandhi: “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” Yoga inspires me to live aloha and treat everyone with love and respect. ... on Twitter
Chris Butler's reclusive group is reported to have cultish features - but nothing very unexpected for a 70's hippie-spiritualist setup.
However, the attacks on Tulsi herself are certainly "Hinduphobic", similar to the conspiracy theory that Barack Obama was a Muslim pretending to be a Christian. It was left to Obama's opponent to point out that religious slanders have no place in an election for public office.

Links to dictators and authoritarians

The objection -
There are numerous articles like this one: Tulsi Gabbard Unites Putin Apologists, Bloodstained Modi, Genocidal Assad and the U.S. Far Right
Explanation -
Military interventions don't work - they extend indefinitely, and have unintended consequences for the region. It isn't an ideal way to be a force for good.
Those who opposed the disasterous Iraq war are not friends of Saddam - Tulsi likewise opposes the regime change efforts in Syria which are several covert operations and open interventions that have been going on a long time.
If an American citizen gave money, weapons or support to al-Qaeda or ISIS, he or she would be thrown in jail. Yet the U.S. government has been violating this law for years, quietly supporting allies and partners of al-Qaeda, ISIL, Jabhat Fateh al Sham and other terrorist groups with money, weapons, and intelligence support, in their fight to overthrow the Syrian government. ... Stop Arming Terrorists Act
Article one of the constitution gives Congress the sole power to declare war. Congress has not done so against the Syrian government. ... Syria has not declared war against the US or threatened the US. The launch of 59 missiles against Syria last year was illegal and did not meet any of those criteria in the war powers resolution. ... Tulsi Gabbard demands answers from Defense Secretary Mattis on attacking Syria
The pro-war propaganda of regime change is the exact same mentality that got us into the disastrous war on Iraq, Libya and now Syria, leading to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people in the Middle East, the deaths of thousands of American soldiers and costing American taxpayers over $6 trillion dollars. Tulsi Gabbard on Syria
Eisenhower was connecting those dots with the influence that the military-industrial complex has on leaders in Congress who are making decisions about how our money is spent and where our troops are sent off into battle. Tulsi Gabbard on Joe Rogan

Links to homophobic groups

The objection -
Hit pieces like this one - Tulsi Gabbard once touted working for anti-gay group that backed conversion therapy - make it seem as if Tulsi is an inveterate homophobe.
Explanation -
Tulsi's father was an anti-gay activist when Tulsi was young, and that is the cause of the controvery. Tulsi opposed same-sex marriage at this time. She was never at any point against homosexuality and never supported "conversion therapy."
Various articles that suggest that her views haven't changed are simply false in light of her long-held and unchanging position on the issue, genuinely dateable to 2011:
I realized that a constitutional amendment defining marriage - even the one I and most Hawaii voters had supported - was anathema to the personal freedom we enjoy in America. And so my positions evolved. ... Reflections on the Role of Government in Our Personal Lives
Marriage should be handled and defined by individuals, their conscience, and their respective churches, mosques, temples, synagogues, etc. according to the values and traditions of the various communities which make up the mosaic of our aloha state and country. ... Social issues.

Part 2: McCarthyist allegations

These criticisms arise from one central principle: Tulsi considers hyper-partisanship to be the main problem - she wants to put nation before party, profits and petty politics.
On the other hand, ideologically-driven liberals consider Trump to be the main problem. The #resistance are outraged that the election was stolen by an immoral and narcissistic upstart, while pragmatic liberals think that any Democrat would be an infinite improvement over Trump. The fear is that negligence will result in a repeat of 2016.
Therefore, they are interested in (1) impeaching Trump, and avoiding anything that would help Trump, including (2) external sabotage, and (3) internal dissension. Any anti-establishment candidate will attract hysterical criticism on these three fronts, and there is nothing one can do (or refrain from doing) that will deflect such criticism.

Discrediting the impeachment process

The objection -
Tulsi has opposed the impeachment from the beginning, going so far as to dismiss the Mueller report and repeat Republican talking points on the supposedly partisan process:
Explanation -
Impeaching Trump doesn't solve the larger problem of Trumpism and a deeply divided country. It is instead necessary that Trump be defeated in an election, with minimum divisive rhetoric.
I have long been concerned that pursuing impeachment, especially driven by partisan reasons, is really really bad for the country. You know our country is already so divided. Last night I was talking with a college student at Grinnell College and he was talking about how his uncle and and his cousin they don't even speak anymore because of political differences. Pursuing impeachment purely on partisan differences would be extremely divisive for an already divided country. ... Fortune Most Powerful Women - one-on-one (21st Oct)
The challenge before us today is that our country is very divided. Donald Trump must be defeated. But we must do more than just defeat Donald Trump. We need to deliver a win for the American people. We must stand united as Americans remembering that we are all brothers and sisters - that we are all connected. closing statements in the October debate (15th Oct)

The Russian angle

The objection -
Explanation -
Hillary Clinton has been painstakingly cataloguing the various reasons she lost the 2016 election - all underhand tactics. When she spoke about it again recently, she repeated the whole list of reasons, and kindly volunteered to identify the Russian actors of the current season.
The job of a "Russian asset" is to parrot "Russian talking points" or to run a spoiler campaign. Tulsi apparently does both.
"Russian talking points" are any geo-political observation that benefits Russia or simply a pacifist or isolationist foreign policy.
A spoiler campaign is either a third-party candidate that splits the party's votes, or persuades voters to stay home or to vote for the other side. Anyone who appears to "stoke the divide" is guilty of pushing for such a terrible result. Such a candidate is surely also a "DINO", or a "wolf in sheep's clothing", and would have joined the Republican party if he/she had even a shred of conscience.
According to experts on Russian interference like John Brennan, the Russians never fail to take advantage of an opportunity to sabotage American elections. They use a variety of methods including online bots, fake news sites, and material assistance to ensure the victory of their favored candidate.
This is a complex issue which generated many reaction and opinion pieces:
"Something is a Russia asset even if it is not intentionally advancing their interest. The Russians are very sophisticated. They looked at a lot of different countries and how they can influence events. It can be a third-party candidate and pushing candidates they favor." ... Ex-CIA boss Brennan appears to partly back Hillary Clinton's theory Tulsi Gabbard is a Russian asset
What we are now seeing is nothing less than a joint effort by the former secretary of state and her allies in the media (which very much include certain former high-ranking members of the US intelligence community) to vilify those like Gabbard who vocally oppose a new Cold War with Russia. ... The Demonization of Dissent
But what most needs thwarting is this archaic way of looking at foreign policy—as a Manichaean struggle for influence between the United States and its allies, on the one hand, and the forces of darkness on the other. The U.S. shares important interests with Russia—and, for that matter, with Russian allies Syria and Iran—and the sooner it recognizes that, the better. ... What’s Good for Putin Is Not Always Bad for America
So the establishment narrative managers now have an official three-word debunk of any criticism of the establishment which employs them, which applies even when that criticism is fully based in facts and reality. Facts are a Kremlin talking point, and anyone who believes them is Russian. Facts are Russian. Truth is Russian. Skepticism is Russian. Asking questions is Russian. Dissent is Russian. Revolution is Russian. ... Truth Is A Kremlin Talking Point

Running a third-party or spoiler campaign

The objection -
The DNC expects all candidates to rally behind the eventual nominee to present a strong front and avoid confusing and alienating voters. The establishment was pretty certain, at one point, that Tulsi would run as a third-party candidate: Gabbard stokes fears among Democrats.
Explanation -
Tulsi has said a dozen times that she will not run as a third party candidate, and that she is going to take it all the way to the convention. The intention is bring the Democratic party back to what it used to be - a pro-people, pro-worker and pro-peace party.
Is there any scenario in which you would run as a third-party candidate? No. It's incredible to me, honestly, how many times I get asked that question, even just over the last 72 hours, over and over and over again. And over and over and over again my answer is still the same. It's important to look at what I'm doing. I am calling out my own party and I am calling out what I have seen as as a corruptive influence in our party that's taken it away from being the party of the people that it needs to be. So no, I'm not going to run as a third party candidate. I'm running for the Democratic nomination to lead the Democratic Party, to take it back from those who have been advocating for waging more regime change wars, serving interests other than those the interests of the people. Our party should be the party of by and for the people, fighting for the well-being of every person in this country protecting our planet, and fighting for peace. ... Taking back the Democratic party (21st Oct)
The DNC also disparages Sanders for doing what Gabbard is supposedly doing: “fracturing the Democratic Party”, never mind that neither of these people is doing anything besides running for office. We are told that both of them have committed a moral trespass by presenting the American people with an alternative. ... Traitors of Journalism: Lisa Lerer, Character Assassin & Eraser of History
Democrats Should Abandon the Third-Party “Spoiler” Argument

Part 3: Tulsi's positions

Here, we cover allegations of Islamophobia, Tulsi voting with Republicans on the Middle-East, her progressive record, pro-Israel record and PAC/lobbyist funding.

Islamophobia - "radical Islamic terror"

The objection -
Tulsi demanded that Obama use the term "radical islam": Rep. Gabbard: Obama is misidentifying the enemy. This became quite controversial at the time, and Tulsi was accused of Islamophobia along with right-wing pundits who were trying to blame Muslims for terrorism.
Explanation -
According to Tulsi's analysis, the core of the problem of terrorism is the Wahhabi/Salafi/Deobandi flavor of Islam. This is an ultra-conservative, ultra-puritan, exclusivist, extremist, pan-Islamist ideology that is largely promoted by Saudi Arabia using their oil money. This ideology and its establishments have already set root throughout Asia and Africa. There is a madrassa-to-terrorism pipeline, with graduates from these madrassas more easily radicalized and trained join the nearest "freedom struggle" or the global terrorist network. Virtually every act of ideologically-motivated terrorism can be directly traced to this ideology. ISIS, Al-Qaeda, the Taliban, Boko Haram, and any of the South Asian terrorist networks are founded on this ideology.
Some articles find a common thread of Islamophobia through all of Tulsi's positions - from her use of the term "Islamic terrorism", support of Modi, blocking Syrian refugees, opposing the Iran deal, voting against BDS, and possibly also her opposition to Saudi Arabia and Turkey. In reality, these are based on different motivations and analyses, and have nothing to do with Islamophobia.
For years, Tulsi has also voiced her strong opposition to Saudi Arabia’s state sponsored Islamist extremism. Saudi Arabia spends hundreds of billions of dollars to spread their Wahhabi/Salafi/Deobandi (WSD) takfir extremist ideology around the world through literature, media outreach, madrasas, etc, fueling the threat of extremist violence. ...Tulsi Gabbard on Saudi Arabia & Yemen

Islamophobia - voting along Republican lines on the Middle-East

The objection -
Tulsi's voting record has also drawn criticism for being anti-Muslim, and entirely in line with the Republican positions. She has blocked Syrian refugees from entering America, voted against the Iran deal, voted against the BDS, etc.
Explanation -
Tulsi advised that Trump against breaking the Iran deal, and said that she will re-enter the Iran
The Iran deal, while imperfect, has kept Iran from developing a nuclear weapon and kept the peace. I remain supportive of the agreement. ...Tulsi on Twitter (Sep 2017) (Endorsing Bernie Sanders' opinion on the Iran deal.)
Gabbard acknowledged there were “flaws” and “concerns” in the Iran nuclear deal, "…that should’ve been addressed separately while maintaining and upholding the Iran nuclear deal to prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons. Instead, by the Trump administration pulling out from this deal, they’ve essentially given Iran an excuse to be able to restart this Iran nuclear weapons program. That makes us and the world far less safe. So, as president, I would re-enter the Iran nuclear deal." ... Tulsi Gabbard would re-enter the Iran nuclear deal if elected
Even if Tulsi's explanations may not be entirely convincing, it should still be clear that these are not Republican or Islamophobic positions. Moreover, it is likely that Tulsi's position on these issues is nuanced and evolving.

Is Tulsi a progressive?

The objection -
Criticism has come from the left as well:
Their main objections are:
Explanation -
A visual comparison of the positions of all the 2020 candidates shows Tulsi comfortably on the left: Where do the 2020 Democratic candidates stand on the key issues?.
Note, however, that Tulsi supports a variation of Bernie's M4A and GND: see the following two articles for a technical explanation:

Is Tulsi pro-Israel?

The objection -
Tulsi has been silent on Israel's atrocities, and is apparently in line with the Republican's blind support of Israel. See e.g. Tea With Assad, Hugs With Adelson: Tulsi Gabbard's Unique Views on Israel and the Middle East
Explanation -
On the two-state solution:
My vote upholds my commitment to maintaining and strengthening this alliance, as well as my long-held position that the most viable path to peace between Israel and Palestine can be found through both sides negotiating a two-state solution. ... Rep. Tulsi Gabbard Reinforces Commitment to Peace Through Two-State Solution for Israel and Palestine (Jan 2017)
On attending Netanyahu's speech:
Watching the spectacle play out, the politicizing all of this, and seeing how distracting it was and continues to be from the core and important issues. Which is why I felt it was important to go and listen to the Prime Minister of a country that has an ally and a friend of the United States. ...Dem: Why I decided to attend Netanyahu speech

Is Tulsi taking money from PACs and lobbyists?

The objection -
A Fox Business reporter suggested twice that Tulsi Gabbard sought donations from Wall Street executives:
Others have noted large corporate donations, including from Boeing and Lockheed Martin:
Explanation -
Tulsi's responses to the "Wall Street" events:
As is clear from the invitations sent out, I do not accept $$ from PACs/lobbyists. Some in media are apparently upset by the fact that there are business people in NYC who are against warmongers and support my message of ending regime change wars, the new Cold War, and nuclear arms race. By the way, I would love to have millionaires and billionaires join this campaign, and use their money for good, not evil. ... Tulsi on Twitter
It was not a fund raiser. There were no contributions or cover charges to attend. No contributions were received at the event as in my town halls. People were asked to join my campaign and contribute to spreading my message. It was filmed and footage will be released. Omeed organized the event, not the campaign. Atendees were not members of the club, they were guests and friends of the organizer. ... reply to Kim Iverson - Breaking Down the Tulsi Gabbard "Wall Street" Fox News Story
Tulsi did release the full video of that event: Discussion Hosted by Omeed Malik in NYC. It was a regular town hall with no separate message for the elite behind closed-doors. The host of the events later addressed all concerns in an educational and well-articulated discussion- Host of Tulsi Gabbard's 'Wall Street' event: Why I support Tulsi (29th Oct).
The opensecrets.org link in the HuffPost article can be used to see other donations by the same companies. It turns out that Tulsi is far down the pecking order in any election cycle for any donor, well below Bernie Sanders, even for the period when she was taking PAC money.

2019.10.30 12:02 fooali 40 Easy and Great Rewarding Deeds To Do ... Long List

1. Earn a thousand good deeds in Minutes
Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) said: "Is anyone of you incapable of earning one thousand Hasanah (rewards) a day?" Someone from the gathering asked, "How can anyone of us earn a thousand Hasanah?" Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) said: "Glorify Allah a hundred times by just saying “Subhanallah” and a Good deeds will be written for you, or a thousand sins will be wiped away.” (Muslim 4:2073)
2. One of the Rare Treasures of Paradise
Hadhrat Abu Dharr [Ra] narrated that Rasulallah [Saw] said: “Should I not tell you of one treasure of the unlimited treasures of Paradise?” I replied spontaneously “Oh Rasulallah (Peace be upon him) that would be an honour indeed!” Rasulallah (Saw) said: “That rare treasure is LA HAWLA WA LA QUWWATA ILLA BILLAH.” (“The strength to do good and to refrain from evil comes from the grace and mercy of Allah!”) -(Ibn Majah)
Hadrat Abu Dharr al-Ghifari (may Allah be pleased with him) narrates that "my beloved friend” (the Holy Prophet Muhammad, may Allah's blessings and peace be upon him) has enjoined five things upon me. He has commanded me to love and be close to the poor and the downtrodden, and he has commanded me to look at those in the world who are of lower rank than me, and not at those who are of higher rank, and he has commanded me to be kind to the kinsman and to preserve and keep intact the bond of kinship, and he has commanded me not to ask for anything from anyone as a favour and he has commanded me to speak the truth at all times though it may be bitter for others, and he has commanded me to care nothing for the rebuke of those who revile and villify in the path of Allah, and he has commanded me to recite much the Kalima of: Laa Hawla wa laa Qawwuta Illaa Billah (there is no power or strength but in Allah) because all these things are from the treasure-house (of Allah) which is under the ninth heaven. (Ahmad)
3. A Date Palm planted in Paradise for the one who Recites this
Hadhrat Jaa'bir [Ra] narrated that Rasulallah(Peace be upon him) said: “For the person who recites SUB-HAN'ALLAH HIL AZEEM WA BI-HAM'DIHI, [Pure and perfect is Allah in his glory and praise], - A date palm will be planted for him in Paradise” (Tirmidhi)
Another Narration says:
4. Forgiveness for Sins Even Though they are like the Foam of the Sea:
Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “Whoever says, ‘Subhan Allaahi Wa bihamdihi, {Allah is free from imperfection and His is the praise}. One hundred times a day, will be forgiven all his sins even if they were as much as the foam of the sea. (Bukhari, Book #75, Hadith #414)
5. We Can Earn Over a BILLION Rewards in Just a Few Seconds!
Narrated ‘Ubaadah that the Messenger of Allah said, “Whoever seeks forgiveness for the believing men and believing women, Allah will write for him a good deed for each believing man and believing woman.” (Tabarrani)
6. That Which Shall Have no Equal on the Day of Resurrection:

“Laa ilaaha illallaah wahdahuu laa shareeka lahu, lahu-l-mulk wa lahu-l-hamd wa huwa ‘alaa kulli shai’in qadeer,”
(“None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, the Alone Who has no partners, to Him belongs Dominion and to Him belong all the Praises, and He has power over all things (i.e. Omnipotent)”,}
he will get the same reward as given for manumitting ten slaves; and one hundred good deeds will be written in his accounts, and one hundred sins will be deducted from his accounts, and it (his saying) will be a shield for him from Satan on that day till night, and nobody will be able to do a better deed except the one who does more than he.” (Bukhari, Book #75, Hadith #412)

He came back in the forenoon and found me sitting there. The Prophet said, ”Are you still in the same position as I left you.” I replied in the affirmative. Thereupon the Prophet said, “I recited four phrases three times after I had left you. If these are to be weighed against all you have recited since morning, these will be heavier. These are:
Subhan-Allah Wa bihamdihi, ‘adada khalqihi, wa rida-a nafsihi, wa zinatah ‘arshihi, wa midada kalimatihi

{There is nothing worthy of worship but Allah, He is alone without partner, to Him belongs the dominion and the praise, he causes life and death and He is the Living One and will never die. In His Hand is all good, and He is over all things capable.)
Allah will write for him a million good deeds erase a million of his bad deeds and build for him a house in Jannah.”
And in another narration, instead of mentioning that Allah will build a house in Jannah, it states, “and he will be raised one million levels.” (Tirmidhi).

One day she begged the holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) to provide her with a domestic servant upon which the Prophet (Peace be upon him) observed, "I will tell you of something that will serve you better than a domestic servant. Recite Subhaa-nallaah 33 times, Alhamdu lillaah 33 times, and Allahu Akbar 34 times after each Salaah and on retiring to bed. This will be of greater value to you than a servant."
Another Tradition says, "Whoever will recite after each Salaah 33 times Subhaa-nallaah, 33 times Alhamdu lillaah, and 34 times Allahu Akbar, and, at the end of it, the Kalima of ‘Laa ilaaha illal laahu wahdahu laa sharika lahu lahul mulku wa-lahul hamdu wa huwa alaa kulli shay-in qadeer’. (There is no Allah but one Allah. He is alone. No partner hath. He Him belongs sovereignty and unto Him belongs Praise and He is all-Powerful) all his sins will be forgiven even if they be as profuse as the foam of the sea."

I saw the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) counting this on his fingers. He said: ‘That makes one hundred and fifty on the tongue and one thousand five hundred (hasanaat) in the scales.
[Translator’s note: each of three phrases repeated ten times makes thirty; multiplied by the number of daily prayers, which is five, makes one hundred and fifty. Each of these good deeds of the tongue will be rewarded with ten hasanaat which will be added to the total of good deeds to be weighed in the balance or scales on the Day of Judgement].
12. Glorifying Allah 100 times when one goes to bed
When you go to bed, glorify Him and praise Him and magnify Him One hundred times: that will be one hundred on the tongue and a thousand in the scales.
Who among you does 2,500 bad deeds in one day?’ They said: ‘How could we not count (our sins)?’ He said: ‘The Shaytaan comes to any one of you whilst he is praying and says, Remember this, remember that, until he finishes his prayer and does not do (this dhikr), or he comes to him when he is lying down and makes him sleepy, until he falls asleep (without doing this dhikr).’” (Sunan al-Tirmidhi, 3332).

And Anas (RA) a companion, has said that the eternally blessed Prophet said that "When my name is mentioned before anyone it is incumbent upon him to, send darud on me, and whosoever sends darud once, Allah sends His Mercy on him ten times (ibid.)
The best Darud is that which we read in our Salah and the shortest is to say "Salallahu Alaihi Wasallim"
34. Seeking forgiveness as much as possible everyday
Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) was free of all sin, but even then he has said that "I beg for Allah's forgiveness seventy times or more every day" (Bukhari)

Our holy Prophet (Peace be upon him), was asked as to which actions are good for Muslims. Among the actions which he enumerated was this: "You should greet people whether you know them or not."

37.1 When entering ones house greet with salaam even when entering empty house
Our holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) instructed his personal servant Anas as follows, “Oh son! When you enter (your) house, greet your family members; this act shall be of benefit for both you and your family members." (Tirmidhi)
Even when entering an empty house one should greet with the intent that angels are being greeted.
37.2 Reward for giving FULL salaam is 30 good deeds
Imran bin Husayn(RA) recounts that once he and others were in the presence of the Prophet (Peace be upon him) when a man came and said, "Assalamu alaikum", to which the blessed Prophet (Peace be upon him) responded and said, "Ten" (i.e. the person who had greeted him had earned ten merits); then another man came and he "Assalamu alaikum wa Rahmatullah", to which the Prophet (Peace be upon him) responded and said "Twenty" (i.e. the person had earned twenty merits). Finally a third man came and said "Assalamu alaikum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatu", to which the exalted Prophet (Peace be upon him) responded and said, "Thirty" (i.e. the person had earned thirty merits) (Abu Daud, Tirmidhi, Jami al Usul, p. 602. vol 6)

39. We will be with those whom we love even the Prophet (Peace be upon him)
Anas (RA) Quotes that someone asked our blessed and exalted Prophet,"When shall come the Day of Judgement?" Our Prophet asked him "What preparation have you made for the Day?" The man said, "Nothing, but I have love for Allah and for His Messenger." The Prophet said, "You shall be (on that Day) with whom you love."
Anas (RA) says that these words of the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) so pleased us as nothing had ever done. He further said, "I have great love for the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) and with Abu Bakr (RA) and Umar(RA), may Allah be pleased with them, and because of this love, I shall be in their company, even though my deeds are not equal to theirs." (Sahih Bukhari, kitab-al-Adab, chapter Alamah al Hubb fi Allah).
40. Magnify ones intention and get even MORE reward doing good deeds!
Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) said: "Deeds (their correctness and rewards) depend upon intentions, and every person gets but what he has intended." (Agreed upon)
Ibn Al-Mubarak said: "May a small deed be magnified by the sincere intention; and may a great deed be diminished by the insincere intention"
If we do not correct our intention before doing a good act or deed then we will not get rewarded our deeds even if it is a great one, while we can magnify our humble deeds by a sincere intention.
May Allah increase us in good and give us the ability to do excessive good deeds so that we may please him and make him the happiest so we can achieve the highest ranks of Paradise. Ameen

One of the beliefs that has come from Mutawatir narrations from the Prophet of God and therefore is certainly taught by him, is the belief in reappearance of a man from his Itrat (household) and progeny at the end of time, named “Mahdi”, who will fill the earth with justice after it has been filled with injustice and oppression. Because, according to Allamah Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani’s may God protect him teachings: “because more than forty people from the companions of the Prophet (PBUH) such as Abdullah ibn Mas’ud, Talha ibn Abdullah, Abd al Rahman ibn Awf, Abdullah ibn Abbas, Abdullah ibn Umar, Jabir ibn Abdullah, Hudhayfa ibn Yaman, Ammar ibn Yasir, Anas ibn Malik, Imran ibn Hassin, Awf ibn Malik, Abu Ayyub Ansari, Abu Sad Khudri, Salman the Persian, Jabir Sadafi, Abu Huraira, Abu Amama, Thawban, Umm Salama, Aisha and many others have narrated the narration about his highness, for tens of their own successors and from there for hundreds of Muslims and most of the leaders of Hadith, such as Tirmidhi (Died 279 AH), Abri (Died 363 AH), Hakim (Died 405 AH), Bayhaqi (Died 458 AH), Baqawi (Died 510 AH), Ibn Athir (Died 630 AH), Qurtubi (Died 671 AH), Mazzi (Died 742 AH), Dhahabi (Died 748 AH), Haythami (Died 807 AH), Sakhawi (Died 902 AH), Suyuti (Died 911 AH), ibn Hajar (Died 974 AH), Katani (Died 1345 AH), Albani (Died 1420 AH), and others have asserted the validity and Tawatur[2] of that and many of them, such as ibn Abi Khaythamah (Died 279 AH), ibn Hammad (Died 288 AH), ibn Munadi (Died 336 AH), Abu Na’im (Died 430 AH), Abd al Ghani (Died 600 AH), Hamawi (Died 650 AH), Kanji (Died 658 AH), ibn Qayyim (Died 685 AH), ibn Kathir (Died 774 AH), Suyuti (Died 911 AH), ibn Hajar (Died 974 AH), Shawkani (Died 1250 AH) and others, have written independent books about that and the content of this narration is in compliance with God’s promise in the Quran where He has said: «وَلَقَدْ كَتَبْنَا فِي الزَّبُورِ مِن بَعْدِ الذِّكْرِ أَنَّ الْأَرْضَ يَرِثُهَا عِبَادِيَ الصَّالِحُونَ» (Anbya/ 105); “And indeed we have written in the Psalms after the Torah that my righteous servants will be the heirs of earth” and has said: «وَنُرِيدُ أَن نَّمُنَّ عَلَى الَّذِينَ اسْتُضْعِفُوا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَنَجْعَلَهُمْ أَئِمَّةً وَنَجْعَلَهُمُ الْوَارِثِينَ» (Qasas/ 5); “And we desire to bestow a favor upon the oppressed people on the earth and to set them leaders and to appoint them as the heirs” and has said: «وَعَدَ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مِنكُمْ وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَيَسْتَخْلِفَنَّهُمْ فِي الْأَرْضِ كَمَا اسْتَخْلَفَ الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِهِمْ وَلَيُمَكِّنَنَّ لَهُمْ دِينَهُمُ الَّذِي ارْتَضَىٰ لَهُمْ وَلَيُبَدِّلَنَّهُم مِّن بَعْدِ خَوْفِهِمْ أَمْنًا يَعْبُدُونَنِي لَا يُشْرِكُونَ بِي شَيْئًا وَمَن كَفَرَ بَعْدَ ذَٰلِكَ فَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْفَاسِقُونَ» (Nu 55); “God has promised those who have become the believers and have done good deeds to indeed set them as Caliphs on the earth, as He set their ancestors as the Caliphs and has definitely enabled their religion which He has chosen for them to achieve power and to indeed secure them after their fear in order to worship Me and not to associate a partner for Me and anyone who disbelieves thereafter, is indeed from the sinners” and has said: «يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مَن يَرْتَدَّ مِنكُمْ عَن دِينِهِ فَسَوْفَ يَأْتِي اللَّهُ بِقَوْمٍ يُحِبُّهُمْ وَيُحِبُّونَهُ أَذِلَّةٍ عَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ أَعِزَّةٍ عَلَى الْكَافِرِينَ يُجَاهِدُونَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ وَلَا يَخَافُونَ لَوْمَةَ لَائِمٍ ذَٰلِكَ فَضْلُ اللَّهِ يُؤْتِيهِ مَن يَشَاءُ وَاللَّهُ وَاسِعٌ عَلِيمٌ» (Maidah/ 54); “O you who believe! Anyone of you who returns from his religion, so then God will descend a group in future whom He loves and they love Him, they are humble to believers and are tough toward infidels, they fight in the way of God and do not have fear from blaming of the blamers! This is God’s grace that He bestows His grace to every person He wills and God is the wise all solacing all knowing”; Due to the fact that what is acquired from the above, is the certainty of domination of some of the believer, righteous, oppressed, loved, warrior, kind and brave servants of God over the world in future and Mahdi is the complete example of such servants of God, based on the descriptions mentioned in the Mutawatir narration of the Prophet (PBUH) for him and therefore, his domination over the world in future, is certain based on God’s promise in the Quran; as God has said: «يَـٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلنَّاسُ إِنَّ وَعْدَ ٱللَّهِ حَقٌّ» (Fati 5); “O’ You people! Undoubtedly God’s promise is true” and has said: «وَعْدَ اللَّهِ لَا يُخْلِفُ اللَّهُ وَعْدَهُ» (Rum/ 6); “This is God’s promise and He will never violates His promise” and has said: «فَلَا تَحْسَبَنَّ اللَّهَ مُخْلِفَ وَعْدِهِ رُسُلَهُ» (Ibrahim/ 47); “Therefore, do not think that He violates His promise to His prophets” and has said: «إِنَّمَا تُوعَدُونَ لَصَادِقٌ» (Dhariyat/ 5); “Indeed what you have been promised is definitely true” and has said: «إِنَّمَا تُوعَدُونَ لَوَاقِعٌ» (Mursalat/ 7); “Indeed what you have been promised will definitely take place!” Therefore, it is befitting that the certainty of belief of Mahdi’s advent as the divine Caliph of God on the earth and a person from the household of the Prophet (PBUH) who will fill the earth with justice and equity, by performing the complete and pure Islam, to be considered as essentials of Islam and be subject to consensus by all Muslims, so that it be a basis for their union in future.” (Return to Islam, P. 281) As all Abrahamic religions agree on the advent of such a person in the end of times, and this – contrary to the strange imaginations of the miss-minded people -- means the authenticity of the belief in such a person and presence of its root in teachings of all the prophets from the aspect of «كَلِمَةٍ سَوَاءٍ بَيْنَنَا وَبَيْنَكُمْ» (Ali-Imran/ 64) and therefore, the abuse of it by some religions and sects, does not undermine its validity.
Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani regardless of Islamic religions and sects, and only by citing the certain Islamic sources, believes that the earth does not become vacant of “God’s Caliph” at no time and his reason, on the one hand, is the rational necessity for presence of God’s Caliph on earth for teaching the entire of Islam and its fulfilment in a pure and complete way, considering the fact that such an education of Islam and its fulfilment is necessary and it is impossible without presence of such a Caliph and on the other hand, it is God’s word that He clearly has said: «إِنِّي جَاعِلٌ فِي الْأَرْضِ خَلِيفَةً» (Baqarah/ 30); “Indeed, I am the instituter of My Caliph in the earth”, and this is equivalent to His promise that will never fail; as He has said: «لَا يُخْلِفُ اللَّهُ وَعْدَهُ» (AR-Rum: 30) “Allah does not break His promise”, and it is equivalent to His tradition that will never change; as He has said: «فَلَنْ تَجِدَ لِسُنَّتِ اللَّهِ تَبْدِيلًا» (Fati 43) “So you will never find the tradition of Allah to change”. This is while, the only Caliph of the God at the end of time due to the Mutawatir narration of Prophet peace be upon him and his household, is Mahdi and nobody other than him has been prophesized as the Caliph at the end of time; Hence, the certainty of the Caliphate of anyone except for him is impossible after the predecessors (the Salaf), while anything other than certainty is not sufficient in Islam, and this means the impossibility of the Caliphate of anyone other than Mahdi at the present time. Accordingly, it is possible to believe in existence of Mahdi in present time, although he be an unknown and unavailable individual; because his presence is possible even though he does not introduce himself or invite toward himself; especially, since there are many narrations through Ahl al-Bayt about his long occultation prior to his reappearance (see, for example, Ibn Babuyah, Kamal al-Din; Na’mani, Al-Ghibah, Toosi, Kitab Al-Ghibhah), and rendering all of them as fabricated, since they were present in Hadithic sources of Twelver Shia before the death of Hasan Askari (D. 260 AH) such as the Al-Mishikh’s book of Hassan bin Mahboub Zarad (D. 224 AH), is not reasonable (See: Tabarsi, I’lam Al-Wara Vol. 2, P. 258); regardless of the fact that the Sunni Hadithic sources has also referred to such an occultation (Ibn Hammad, Al-fItan, P. 214; Moqaddasi, Uqad Al-Durar, P. 133), but even Bible has also informed of “abducting a male child, who will rule all the nations with an iron scepter” due to the fear of being devoured by a “fiery great dragon” and it is said: “The dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that it may devour the son the moment she is about to give birth. The woman gave birth to a son, a male child, who will rule all the nations with an iron scepter and her child was snatched up to God and to His throne and the woman fled into the wilderness to a place where God had prepared for her, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days” (Revelation, 12: 4-6).
However, it is worthy of notice that Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani has not established his invitation toward preparing the grounds for advent of Mahdi on the belief in his presence at the present time, so that those who do not believe in his presence find the ability to reject his invitation, rather in his book (Return to Islam, P. 290), he has clarified that preparing the grounds for his advent, even based on the lack of belief in his existence at the present time, is necessary; given that on this basis, although his existence is contingent on God’s action which means His act of creation, it is yet contingent on people capability which means their acceptance and readiness, and God will create him at the time when he will be able to appear in that time for them. Therefore, if he does not exist at the present time, preparing for his existence is necessary very much identical to necessity for preparing the grounds for his reappearance, and this is based on the God’s word that He has said: «إنَّ اللهَ لا یُغیِّرُ مَا بِقَومٍ حَتَّی یُغیِّروا مَا بِأَنفُسِهِم» (Ra'd/ 11); “God does not change the condition of a people until they change what is within themselves”.
The result is that the advent of Mahdi from the household (Itrat) of the Prophet peace be upon him and his household in order to fill the earth with justice after it has been filled with oppression is not made up by the mind of a particular religion or sect driven by some social pressure in order to frighten the arrogant oppressor class of the society, but it is like the promise of God about heaven and the hell in Islam and other Abrahamic religions based on common sources and certainties that has no conflict with intellect; As if whether he exists or not, it is not permissible to sit down waiting for him, but it is obligatory for all the justice seekers of the world to prepare the grounds for his advent, and by that it is meant to provide necessary preparations to give him security and realizing his sovereignty after his advent toward which Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani invites; as he has said: “I am an announcer ahead of Mahdi who calls: Clear the way” (Saying 3) [Question and answer 309].

2019.05.17 13:13 reverthelp FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: Inviting others to Islam

Q: How Should Believers Invite Others to Faith?

The aim of sending the Prophets is communicating the divine message, which is the most important and vital obligation incumbent on humanity.
That is to say, to enlighten others with knowledge of the true religion and the duties that accompany it. In the light of this our primary duty is to review all existing and past methods and approaches, and to put into practice today those principles which it is possible to apply, and which lead to the best results. Everyone who is considered old enough to be responsible for his actions may and should serve to convey the message of God to everyone, in the recognized ways, with the courtesies proper to the task. Whatever their ages and status are, each and every individual is obliged to tell others what he is supposed to tell, and this constitutes a most vital duty. The purpose of our existence is the same too. For, God says:
I created man and jinn for no other purpose than to worship Me only (Dhariyat 51:56).
Such worship or servanthood to God is like a race, and every person will take part in it. Some will not cope with the hurdles and be detained, and some will always win and attain the furthest places in this race, even to the presence of God.
Devotion, servanthood, to God requires not only listening, understanding, accepting, abiding by and applying certain rules in one’s life; it also means seeking the purity in ideas and mind, and striving toward the horizon of thinking of only the Creator, whose effort is a heavy, sublime, and sacred duty.
O you people, worship your Guardian Lord Who created you and those who came before you that you may become righteous, Who has made the earth your couch, and the heavens your canopy; and sent down rain from the heavens; and brought forth therewith fruits for your sustenance; then set not up rivals unto God when you know the truth. (Baqara 2:21)
The act of creating and the things created belong to Him alone. It is God Who brought you into existence, and Who created, in one sense, before your birth, the elements and particles which would constitute you, and Who created, in another sense, the people who came before you. It is God Who caused to perish many before you, like Pharaoh, Nimrod, Shaddad, and such. By His laws of creation, He turned the Romans, the Greeks, the Byzantines, the Ottomans and the rest, who strutted and swaggered about the earth, into ruins. So it is God Who created and caused to perish all those. Therefore, beware and worship God alone, the Almighty, the Creator, the Sustainer, and keep always in mind and before your eyes the example, lesson and warning of the past and present, so that you may enter into the circle of piety, consciousness of God.
It is the Sustainer, the Almighty, who made the earth your couch, a resting place. (Taha 20:53)
It is as if the world were a big mansion and the Owner of this mansion, the Sovereign of all the worlds, was entertaining His weak and unable guest with a great show of honor, treating him with marks of respect and distinction. If the slightest failure occurred in this couch, the guest could do nothing and would have nowhere to flee to. So everything is maintained according to the guest’s wants, needs and weaknesses. When this guest lies down on his back and looks at the canopy over his head, he will see it ornamented with stars and systems for his observation. It is God Who made this magnificent canopy over His guest’s couch.
He has made the heavens as a canopy well guarded.( Anbiya 21:32)
The heavens give light and heat, and the earth responds with buds and flowers; the earth returns the evaporation to the heavens, and the heavens turn it back as rainfall; the heavens have the thunders, lightning, and the earth gets its share from their fertile effects; the heavens give rain, and the earth preserves and presents it as drinking water, the living things live their lives and die, and the earth is purified and sterilized by the change of time, seasons, and so on and so forth. So we see that this guest-house is created; not left to run itself but, on the contrary, it is cared for, sustained, and provides for the guests fruits and blessings of all kinds. Therefore, turn to your Sustainer, Cherisher, Lord of all the realms, and worship Him.
It is apparent that light for our eyes, taste for our tongues and sound for our ears, that is, our physical and spiritual needs, are all regulated and provided, as sustenance for us. All these come from God. He is never confused while granting all these diverse kind of sustenance; and He neither needs others’ help nor lets them interfere with His work. Therefore, be fair and reasonable; and do not confuse, do not associate, others in your worship of God. Avoid and save yourself from the different kinds of the ugliness of shirk (attributing partners to God) whether open or hidden, big or small.
Had God not assigned to us recourse to causes, we would not have felt any need to refer to cause and would have regarded any attempt of that kind as shirk. However, since this world is the abode of wisdom and everything comes into this place entangled in causes, we just consider them as mediating conditions. But the real focus is the Giver, Creator, Who holds all causes under His disposal, therefore we worship Him alone. While attributing some share to causes, whether in the face of misfortunes, calamities and sufferings, or of joy, pleasure or delight, one should always preserve the balance, and avoid words and acts which give any hint of shirk. And the sensitivity to be observed on this matter is directly proportional to one’s closeness to God. When one has tasted the blessing of the immaterial and spiritual pleasures, one should continue to act and worship God in a way worthy of such blessings. One should not let oneself go astray even for an instant by any inclination that might turn one to any other than God. If such an inclination occurs to one, one should come to oneself and affirm the tawhid and proclaim the oneness of God. Such servanthood to God done in this consciousness is the purpose of life, and every understanding of service that leads to such a purpose is an obligation, which is the wisdom in sending the prophets to carry out this obligation. So we, the believers, undertake such a sacred duty, and serving God in this way is a competition in virtue, and the people who take part are the most virtuous people of all.
If all the ways which lead to presidency were opened and the position were offered to someone who attaches importance to serving God as explained above, and if he had to choose between one or the other, the presidency or the service of God, he would certainly prefer the latter. For, he knows that this is the job which belongs to the Prophets and the truthful. In this way, there are Abu Bakr, ‘Umar, 'Uthman, 'Ali and the rest, who were pure, saintly and enlightened men. On the other side are people of whom a great majority are oppressors and tyrants; their actions belong to those who have not been adequately nourished morally and spiritually, and have to do with dirty politicking, hatred, intrigue and plots.
But, it is possible for us to turn our lives from ones in which we exist and do nothing but wait for the inevitable end, to ones in which we live and make gradual progress to the level that God is pleased with us. This could be done first by digesting all the principles of faith into our souls, making them an integral part of our souls, and filling our consciences with knowledge of God; and next, aspiring to the consciousness of ihsan-worshipping as if we were seeing God-by raising our faith toward the level of perfect sincerity by means of constant worship, and thus making the pillars of Islam a faculty inherent in our particular nature; and finally conveying these merits, virtues and qualities, which we acquired for ourselves in the first instance, to the community, making them prevalent in all walks of life and thus enlightening all people and places.
In reflecting how to perform the duty of guidance and teaching faith, a number of points are worth bearing in mind. To set the matter out somewhat systematically can be useful in terms of giving people ideas about how to do it, but it can be harmful in terms of over-fixing and over-defining what needs to be natural and flexible. Bearing in mind the need for naturalness and flexibility, we can look briefly at a number of points.

- I -

One should seek and find ways to win entry into the heart and soul of the person addressed.
There are many humane ways one may resort to, such as giving gifts or easing the person’s difficulties. In fact these are ways of kindness that are an essential part of the religion, part of what we are commanded to practice when approaching people. So, first, the person we address should be in a state willing to accept our friendship, cordiality and intimacy. These are important factors if what we say is to be welcomed by that person. Therefore, every effective way legitimate and permissible in Islam should be used to win the person’s heart.

- II -

We should know very well the level of faith, knowledge and culture of the person being addressed.
In this way we may avoid saying or doing something that could so frighten off that person that he may never again come close to us or Islam. For example, if we open and read any Islamic publication or the Qur'an to that person, and if our doing so puts him further off from Islam, then it would be better not to read something, even the Qur'an, to him. Any material we refer to might indeed be full of inspirations which should conquer the hearts and souls of people. However, to offer such material to one who is not yet ready to welcome it, is indirectly (and unintentionally) to betray the cause of Islam.
God provides colostrum, a milk-like liquid secreted for a few days after childbirth that is high in antibody content. Later it turns to whole milk and even the content of it gradually changes as the baby grows up. This law of nature is certainly true of spiritual education and moral nourishment, too. What God manifests to us in His laws of creation should be investigated, minutely, and we should adjust our acts in accordance with them. Sometimes, as this adjustment was lacking, what was said with the intent of guidance caused such a reaction that, even if you happen to find a suitable moment to tell it again, it is ineffectual. So first of all, we should determine the level of perception, knowledge and understanding of the person, so that, we do not end up offering grass to the lion and meat to the horse.

- III -

Gaining the trust and respect of the person spoken to is essential.
He must trust and become attached to you in such a way that you and his love for you weigh heavier than that of his other friends; because your friendship, relationship and love for that person is different from the others’ and only for the sake of God, it will definitely show its effects on his heart. When he is to make a choice, he should be ready to prefer the strenuous duties the religion lays upon us, to the comfort and pleasures of the other side. Even the hardship, trouble and dangers he might experience in the way you are going should be dearer to him than the pleasures and comfort of his previous life. This can only happen for that person if he knows and trusts and loves you thoroughly.
Here is a striking and a concrete example from the Age of Happiness.
Utba ibn Walid was one of the richest and the most inveterate enemies of Islam in Makka. For this reason he was given a nickname meaning, the most wretched evil-doer of his tribe. He was the head of much mischief. However, there was a fortunate person who was brought up in his house and was not like him at all. This was his son, Hudayfa, who attached himself to the Prophet loyally and rejected the most attractive things, in the worldly sense, presented and proposed to him by his father and family. What he was asked by his family was to abandon the Prophet and the cause he propagated. However, due to the lessons he took from his teacher and guide, Hudayfa’s spiritual tension was exact, and his faith and conviction were firm, and he did not give in. What did the Prophet respond to such an offer made by the chieftains in Makka?
“If you put the sun in my right hand and the moon in my left on condition that I abandon this course, before He has made it victorious, or I have perished therein, I would not abandon it.” ( Ibn Hisham, Sirat al-Nabawiya, 2/285. )
The words the Prophet had said made such an impression in the hearts and consciences of the people that not only Hudayfa but also all the Companions would give the same answer. As a guide and teacher, the Prophet won the hearts of people in such a way that wherever and whenever his name was mentioned the effect and decrees of parents, brothers, other kith and kin, were of no avail, and only he remained as the focus of values.
From past to the present nothing much has changed in respect of the relation between the spiritual guide and the one guided. Only the time and the people change, the rest remains the same. Therefore, would-be guides and teachers should apply the Prophet’s way to win the hearts of people. Otherwise, what is said will remain in the air (be ineffective) and will not meet with a friendly welcome. It is a question of reaching, penetrating and settling in the hearts of people. We must remember that if the Prophet had not made himself so loved by his Companions, they would not have gone to Badr behind him. For this was the first battle-all the conditions were completely against them; moreover, the majority of the enemies were their own sons, brothers, fathers, uncles or other relatives. However, the believers got the signal to go forward from the Prophet and believed that it was better for them to die in his way than to live with the falsehood of their kith and kin.
Sometimes the Prophet inculcated in the believers the consciousness of preferring God and His Messenger. We see in the example of Ka'b ibn Malik who failed to march out with the army to Tabuk. Ka'b himself told the story. The Prophet admonished him:
“Didn’t you promise to me in ‘Aqaba that you would go wherever I go?” He replied: “O Messenger of God! If I were dealing with a worldly man, I am sure I would escape his displeasure through seemingly reasonable excuses, for God has endowed me with the gift of the tongue. But in your case I am sure that if I appease you with a false statement, God would be displeased with me. And, on the other hand, I am sure that if I displease you by confessing the simple truth, then God would very soon blow away your displeasure. I therefore make bold to speak the very truth. By God, I had no excuse at all. I had never been so well as I was at that time.” His speaking the truth and perseverance in seeking forgiveness of God brought his salvation. ( Bukhari, Maghazi, 79; Muslim, Tawba, 53. )
The guide should enter the heart of the person he is dealing with in such a way that he can persuade him to do what he tells him; but that which he tells the other to do should not, must not, be for his carnal self. According to the Qur'an, Pharaoh, Nimrod and Shaddad represent the state of those who require from others for themselves. By contrast, the Prophets made their demands only on behalf of God or their community. This is a very subtle point and those who communicate the divine message and be a spiritual guide should pay the closest attention to it.

- IV -

We should have a sound grasp of Islam and Islamic tradition.
One should not speak out whatever comes into his mind or speculate. The Prophet said that he left to us two resources, which we must adhere to, and which would allow us to differentiate light from darkness, right from wrong, namely the Qur'an and Sunna. Therefore, when something is presented on behalf of the cause of Islam, it should be done within the principles of these two sources, and one should have mastered the issues being addressed. One should be well-versed, skilled and proficient in Islamic matters. One should never indulge in dialectics merely to silence the other by argumentation. What we say should be what we ourselves in the first place have understood and digested fully, so that the person we are dealing with can easily take it in and be (spiritually) nourished thereby. A spiritual guide should be like a sheep, which takes in, digests and turns food into milk. So we should feed people with the most restorative, wholesome food, but should not be like a bird, which half-eats, then gives its chicks the regurgitated food. If we do it the right way, we can appeal to people’s minds and souls, and, considering the true knowledge and wisdom which would lead to God, and bring about the best, desired effects.
Naturally this can only be done by reading and studying, improving one’s level of knowledge and culture. That is why those who assume the duty of communicating the divine message should allocate a certain period in a day only to study. The person who is unaware of the knowledge and culture of his day has nothing much to say to the people he is dealing with, or in other words, the person whose level of knowledge and culture is shallow cannot long satisfy the minds of the people he is addressing. Therefore, a guide who is likely to meet people at all levels of knowledge and education should at least have sufficient knowledge and the mastery of the issues he is explaining to satisfy the people he is dealing with. It is my belief that anyone who is backward in his cultural epoch can offer but very little to those who are, or think they are, ahead of him.
I insistently and emphatically repeat that those who regard communicating the message as the purpose of their lives should be equipped with learning and knowledge of God. What an empty person will say is also empty, worse still is when such people try to cover their lack by vehemence, belligerence, angry and futile attitudinizing: in reaction to that, those who are listening will be put off and indeed resent what they otherwise would accept as reasonable.

- V -

All work should be done with devotion, from the heart and with sincerity.
Seeking the pleasure of God is what should govern the perspective, and everything should be designed and regulated accordingly. The method to be followed and the strategies to be applied should primarily be evaluated and assessed by the pleasure of God. If we have a strong conviction that God will be pleased with them, we will go ahead, otherwise, we should absolutely renounce them, and in this way we may hope never to offer any occasion for people to be misled.
The Prophet defines, limits, struggle in the way of God as that struggle which is undertaken only to exalt the religion of God.That means that if you are striving on the way in order to spread the name of God, then it is for God. But to claim that, while in reality serving one’s carnal self, is doomed to failure: for such a struggle is without sincerity and obtains no reward, and where sincerity is damaged, neither the pleasure of God nor any positive influence on the hearts of others are thinkable.
There lived such people before us that whenever they felt that they had spoken or acted flawlessly, they straightaway went into prostration and asked for forgiveness and sincerity from God. For instance, when 'Umar ibn 'Abd al-'Aziz saw how well he had written a state letter, and himself liked its eloquence, he feared lest pride and conceit should enter his heart, and immediately tore up the letter and wrote a new one. Islam was presented in such an atmosphere of sincerity and consciousness then. To speak of God and to spread His message in such a style that the carnal selfgained no advantage or comfort from it was almost considered a principle. They assumed that since their own carnal self did not like and get a share from such acts, that there was the pleasure of God in them, and later they turned this into a principle. In sum, sincerity and action from the heart must be the whole essence of what is taught or explained; and if we would avoid reproach and having our efforts thrown back in our faces in the Hereafter, we must stick to sincerity firmly.
We see in many hadiths that the Prophet emphasized the significance of sincerity and indicated it as the ultimate objective or horizon.
In narrating about the Prophets, the Qur'an pointed out their sincerity, and presented it as an integral part of prophethood. The Qur'an concisely tells us inthe word “mukhlas” (Maryam 19:51) that the Prophet Moses’ acts and work were done only to gain the pleasure of God, and in this way it gives people a lesson in sincerity. The Prophet Abraham, as one whose understanding and consciousness of sincerity was of the highest order, did not fall into doubt and despair even when all events and conditions proved against him, and he even refused the intercession of the angels, taking refuge in only God, Who is All-Aware, All-Knowing, All-Seeing, and said, “God is enough for me.”What was more important for him was the pleasure of God, and he did not put this idea into a secondary place even when threatened with execution. For this reason he was called Khalil (friend) of God; and such a friendship obviously requires the deepest devotion and sincerity.
One day when the Prophet was addressed as “O Friend of God,” he immediately reacted with: “No. That is Abraham." Also, one day when he was addressed as "Sayyiduna,” (our master) he immediately reacted with: “Sayyiduna is Abraham.” Thus it is that only a jeweler appreciates the true value of a jewel. That is why, sincerity and action from heart, the attributes of the Prophets, should be inseparable and integral parts of those who take on the duty of the Prophets. The Qur'an presents us every Prophet as one who had achieved sincerity or to whom God commanded it. So, I believe that it would be better to study the Qur'an from this aspect too.

- VI -

Whatever the level the guide has attained, his heart should be equipped with religious sciences and his mind with civil and positive sciences.
By employing his skills and talents at a level high above worldly trivialities, a level attained as a result of the union of both kinds of knowledge, he should become more profound in inward self-supervision, and then, within the potentialities granted to him, he should improve in understanding of the Names of God. All of which is, of course, related to the point we made above-the acquisition of sincerity and action from the heart in all their dimensions.
Those who take on the duty of guidance should never indulge in the vulgar ways of getting others to accept them, of having the conceit that they influence people, or of boasting of increase in the number of their followers. Instead, they should make a self-criticism of their actions to see if they conform to the pleasure of God. Self-criticism, self-inspection, and self-supervision are essential with regard to spiritual guidance.
What is the reason for what you are doing? That is what needs to be checked and supervised. If there is anything related to our nafs (selfhood, carnal self), we must know to stop there and then. For instance, you are reading and telling something in a gathering, a very good thing in itself, but as you become attentive you realize that what you are captivated by is not the content and meaning of what you are reading but the fact that you are doing so and how well you are doing it. So, there and then, you must stop, or at least pass the book to someone else to carry on. Say, you are preaching from a pulpit, and by the grace of God, you are blessed with such an“expansiveness” that you have only to part your lips and the words flow from your mouth as if of their own accord. There and then you should pay attention to Him Who makes you speak so, and realizing the Giver of such a blessing you should acknowledge your smallness, your servanthood to Him and His Lordship. Otherwise, if your nafs is trying to get some share in His Grace, and you are captivated by that, you must know to stop speaking immediately and get down from the pulpit. For, there is fitna (severe trial) in speaking well, and one should seek refuge in God from such an end. There have been such orators in the world who led great masses of people behind them, but (except the few who were sincere among them) many of their followers are still giving their accounts bitterly, resentfully, to God of how they were persuaded. Say, we are regularly reading and reciting from the Qur'an as our act of secluded worship, and, while reading, we become aware of also trying to melodize and sweeten our voice. Though it is the Qur'an, even such acts of worship are vulnerable to other aims than the pleasure of God, so doubts arise in us and give us pause. Then we should say, “O God, I have begun to read for You, and now I’m stopping, also for You,” and stop reading. Thus, by this inner self-supervision, we learn to regulate ourselves in respect of what is coming up from the depths of our hearts. When it is time, one should know how to deny the carnal self and how to strive against the carnal self. Even in this struggle, one should look for the pleasure of God and act in the ways which will lead to His pleasure.
Such a mood may sometimes manifest in manners that will appear to some people as abnormal, such as, shaking the head, being doubled up in pain, or going into prostration and crying, groaning, there. However, sincerity will, gradually over time, will become natural, and then one can do, act, take or give up everything for God with ease of heart. May God grant us sincerity and purity of heart according to our needs, but not our deserts.

- VII -

If our work causes some adverse reactions in some particular conscience, we should, saying “God’s good pleasure (with us) is above all,” wholeheartedly and cheerfully give way to another to do the work.
Some individuals may react to us for some particular personal reasons, and whatever we say may bring about an adverse reaction. If we remained insisting, our efforts would only serve to make the other refuse, rather than accept. Thus, while that other person has suffered a loss in not accepting the truth, we will suffer a greater loss for we prevented its acceptance. The solution is simple. It is someone else, not we, who will speak to that person. It may be that he accepts the truth from another and so, for being a means to it, however indirect, we will earn the reward for it-as much as the one who worked after us. A subtle matter here is to observe that there is a difference between merely willing that another do the work, and accepting cheerfully that it be so, liking it to be so. We should endeavor to be of the latter, for that is sure to displease the carnal self, and that takes courage and is an instance of genuine altruism and generosity in the cause.
The offer of a Companion who expressed his desire for a position of authority was not welcomed by the Prophet. Similarly, a desire to be the person who speaks at a gathering is not welcomed either. The Prophet always gave such duties to those who were competent, qualified, appropriate and deserving. For this reason, people should come together, choose the person, prepare the conditions for him to speak, and should never be troubled by being among the listeners.

- VIII -

When we encounter issues or questions we have no knowledge of, we should readily and comfortably say “I don’t know."
Again, our best example and guide is the Prophet. With malicious intent, some Jews came and asked the Prophet about the essence of the spirit, looking to raise doubts and misgivings about his Prophethood. As the Revelation had not yet come on this matter, the Prophet gave no answer and kept silent; but, later on, the matter was revealed:
Say: The spirit is my Lord’s command and you have not been given except a little knowledge (Isra 17:85).
The Prophet’s keeping silent in the first place and answering later on, after the verse was revealed, became more influential, and when the Jews got the anticipated answer they were convinced and silenced. So, even the Prophet of God did not say "I know” to every question. What a great lesson to us all!
When the Archangel Gabriel, disguised as a traveler and inquirer, came to the Prophet and asked the time of the Day of Resurrection, the Prophet answered, “the one who is asked does not know more than the one who asks.”There cannot be a better example to teach us that we do not have to answer every question put to us.
On one occasion, when Imam Abu Yusuf was asked one hundred questions, he responded to sixty out of the hundred with “I don’t know.” And the people reacted that they were paying for the position of the Imam, and yet here was the Imam saying “I don’t know.”Imam Abu Yusuf explained: “You are paying me for the things I know, and if you had paid for what I don’t know, the whole world would not have sufficed.”Imam Abu Yusuf at that time held the position of Chief Qadi. On a similar occasion, Imam Malik answered only three questions out of thirty put to him.
These and similar examples show that even the giants of learning held in the highest honor and esteem for their knowledge, did not answer everything they were asked. What is more, they said, “I don’t know.” So, we should easily be able to acknowledge that we do not know; but we need not to leave it at that; we must follow up the matter, and seek learning where we are ignorant. It is also possible that there may be a knowledgeable person whom we know and trust, to whom we can take the questioner or the question. In this way, we learn ourselves and prepare opportunities for others to learn also.

- IX -

The people of guidance should be generous, open-handed and benevolent.
They should be ready, willing and decisive to spend everything they have in His cause while going on the path of serving God. To win the hearts of people they should make their generosity a means, a vehicle. Whenever generosity is mentioned, Khadija, the wife of the Prophet, comes to my mind. She was born before him and passed away before the Prophet. When she met the future Prophet, she was a noble and prosperous businesswoman, organizing trade caravans to other countries whereas he did not have anything in terms of worldly wealth. However, this woman of great insight perceived the great potential in the future Prophet and proposed to him. She had a nature suited to becoming the wife of the Prophet. When Prophethood was given to him, she was the first to acknowledge him, without any doubt, and put the whole of her wealth at his disposal, in the way of God. Nothing was left from this wealth during the boycott imposed upon the Muslims by Quraysh in Makka. At times the Prophet could not find anything to eat and was all but fainting with weakness because there had been nothing at home for days. During that time, umm al-mu'minin (mother of believers) Khadija became ill and as there were no means to procure treatment, she passed away. In generosity, the ultimate is to give oneself, to be consumed.
Abu Bakr was one of the richest tradesmen in Makka, but as one of the good examples of generosity, he used and spent all his wealth in the way of God, and nothing was left to him and his family. He used to distract his aged father by putting pebbles into the money bag, while spending the pieces of gold in the way of Islam. For this reason, even when he was elected the Caliph, he was one of the poor and earned his living by milking other people’s sheep.
‘Umar and his family subsisted on a few dates, as did the poorest in Madina. That suggests that he too used up everything he had in the way of God.
The Companions of the Prophet competed with each other in acts of generosity and altruism on behalf of Islam. Their sincere generosity won hearts and minds to Islam, and the number of entrants to the faith grew with the gathering force of an avalanche. In this as in all matters, the Companions took their cue from the Prophet. One day, one of those on the brink of entering the faith who had yet to do so, went to his tribe and said:
“O my tribe! Go and surrender to that person, for he is the Prophet of God. If he had not been a Prophet, he would not have been so generous, and feared for his sustenance. This person gives immediately whoever wants whatever.”
Every spiritual teacher young or old, should try to enter and conquer the hearts of people in this way. If one gains the heart of a person by spending all he has, he will be considered to have gained a lot and lost nothing. For the generous will open the gates of Paradise. So, one should open the ways that lead to such gates in this world so that there are many to accompany one to Paradise in the other world. Those whom you treated with generosity in this world will be in a state such that if one day they happen to face a choice between human-improvised way of life and Qur'an-enjoined ways, they will choose the Qur'an and the Prophet and so come to submit, to surrender, themselves, wholly to God.
Those who are first to enter the Paradise will not be scholars or preachers, lecturers or teachers, rather those-whoever they are, whether big businessmen or small, or ordinary workers, disposing large incomes or small-who spent their wealth and lives on the path to spread the Truth; generous, open-handed, benevolent and altruistic Muslims, profoundly attached and devoted to God alone. For it is they who were able to distinguish rightly and accordingly it will be said of them: they gave to their Lord what is transitory and perishable and received what is permanent and everlasting.

Today we witness and experience an awakening of consciousness in all walks of life such as we have not experienced for almost twenty years.
In the past it was really difficult to find so many believers in the field of higher education as there are today. This is a sheer blessing of God. However, now, not individuals but the masses stand as the owners, protectors or patrons of services to Islam. We experience a time when even some of the most obstinate people have come to soften their attitudes to Islamic matters and even begun to consider them as feasible. Therefore, at such a time, it is incumbent upon us to develop, employ and evaluate new methods and approaches, provided that we do not depart from the essence and spirit of the truth. Otherwise, it is likely, indeed certain, that we will, as others have, fail to realize the conditions of the time and so lose relevance and effectiveness. We take refuge in God from falling into such a state. We must, as we need to do, adapt to the new ways and developments that the present age presents to us. It should be remembered that the slower we are to adapt, the slower we shall be in reaching the target.
We may conclude with a point that is general and valid for all, that those who take on spiritual guidance should know and realize the conditions and requirements of their epoch, and base their ways of working on these fundamentals. While others are returning into space and shuttling between far new horizons, it is obvious that we will get nowhere by taking people to unsophisticated ways, dark places or underground, in order to teach them something.

- XI -

Understanding group psychology, using appropriate ways to facilitate the joining and progressing of new people is also important.
With some people there are things you speak of but cannot make understood for years. Make such people aware of the development and progress of particular services and institutions, get them to see and meet the others who are working sincerely, whole-heartedly and with great zeal, let them feel the value and atmosphere of cooperation, solidarity and mutual help in collective work. Such direct witnessing may prove more influential than mere telling. However, the Islamic services and institutions should be presented without discrimination and prejudice, without any sense of exclusivity or belonging to a narrow grouping or party. Such visits and demonstrations can influence and reinforce the people’s power of determination in such a way that they may jump the interval of years on one occasion, and be ready to stand on the same line as yourself, shoulder to shoulder. This is true of both individuals and groups.
Thank God that such institutions are now great in numbers, both to hearten the believers and to dishearten the enemies of Islam.

2019.04.18 10:18 kaferist Are moderates the majority? I have translated the top ten comments on the top ten youtube videos posted by Arabic TV news channels regarding the Charlie Hebdo attack

A while ago, a raging leftist came here and started to rabidly attack and insult us for saying that Islam calls for killing gays and for saying that the majority of Muslims do support such punishments. I don't know how the view that "Islam is a religion of peace" has become the norm to the western left. But here's what I know: I wish what the left says about Islam is true. I wouldn't have been pretending to be a Muslim for 16 years. I have lived my entire life in Muslim countries and I know for a fact that the majority of Muslims do accept the death penalty for apostates, gays and criticizers of Islam.
The problem is how can I prove this to the uniformed westerner? I can't turn him into an Arab and make him live an entire life in Arab Muslim countries. So what can I do?. Since that the internet is a mirror reflection of the opinions of people in real life, I thought I can translate one hundred Arabic comments on youtube regarding an event that gained huge media coverage and gained a big support from Muslims around me. It's the 2015 terrorist attack on the French Charlie Hebdo newspaper. The attackers were two French-Algerian brothers. They attacked the newspaper because it published drawings of Muhammad. 12 people died in the attack.
To avoid the accusation that I cherry-picked the videos to get the worst comments, I set this criteria: I searched شارلي ايبدو (Charlie Hebdo) on youtube, set the filter to view count, and took the top ten results that are posted by TV news channels. Because when it comes to news channels I guarantee that the audience is diverse. While if I choose, for example, a video posted by a channel that promotes conspiracy theories, then you find that the majority of the comments are supportive of the conspiracy view. The same kind of skewing of comments happens if the video features a moderate or an extremist speaker.
So I took the top ten comments of the top ten TV news videos. And here are the results:
68 comments were supportive of the attack.
19 comments were of conspiracy nature.
8 comments were neutral or unrelated.
5 comments were against the attack.
These comments are the un-filtered opinions of Muslims that I heard the likes of at the times of the attack. I can't do more than this to put the uninformed non-Muslim in my feet.
So guys please next time someone tells you that the majority of Muslims are moderates, show him this Thread. And also show him the Pew statistics: https://www.pewforum.org/2013/04/30/the-worlds-muslims-religion-politics-society-beliefs-about-sharia/
The most notable comment section is of the second video since that the video features an Arab journalist who works for Charlie Hebdo.
It's important to read the title of every video for a better understanding of the comments.
Here are the 100 comments translated from Arabic. Brace yourself:

The top ten comments:
1-They deserved what they got. A vile magazine that for a long time has been insulting the greatest prophet Muhammad - peace be upon him- with no regard to the feelings of Muslims. So they got the firm response.
يستاهلو ما جاهم مجلة خبيثة تسيء للرسول الاعظم محمد صلي الله علية وسلم من فترة طويلة ولا مراععاه لمشاعر المسلمين ولا يحزنون واتاهم الرد الحازم
2- Im Not Charlie ;Iam Palestien. (Answering the non-Muslim trend of showing support by saying "I am Charlie")
3- Your turn is next the united snakes. I wish this from the bottom of my heart.
الدور قادم عليك يا United Snikes .. أتمنى هذا من كل قلبي .
4-I am Diedonne. (A French comedian who condoned the Charlie Hebdo attack).
أنا "ديودوني"(Dieudonné)!
5-(In response to the big ceremony honoring the victims and was attended by world leaders) The sons of bitches. 23 thousand people get killed in the US every year yet no body made a ceremony for them. There's killing everyday in Europe yet no ceremony. This is all because we are Muslims. They also kill us in our own countries and there are no courts to go after them.
علونا عيال الزنا 23الف شخص يقتل سنويا في امريكا محد سوالهم مراسم. .اوربا يوميا القتل محد سوالهم مراسم. ..كله لاننا مسلمين. .لا ويقتلونا في بلداننا الاسلامية ولا فية محاكم تطاردهم
6-Brothers, don't care what they say. The Shia, Jews, Christains and seculars are with Charlie. So there's no problem in that because they are infidels. (Yeah I didn't get it too) يا اخوة لا تلتفتو الشيعة و اليهود و النصارى و العلمانيين مع شارلي فلا بأس في دلك لانهم كفار
7-I am Charlie. (Don't get excited. This is not the unicorn moderate Muslim we are looking for. He got many responses badly insulting him and he answered them back stating that he's a proud atheist.)
8- Made up. (conspiracy nut job).
AFLAAAAAAAAAAM.....
9-They deserved what they got. They insulted the prophet.
يستاهل ما جاهم دامهم يستهزون بالرسول
10-They got what they deserve.
نالو ماستحقو

Title: An Arab journalist working for Charlie Hebdo explains in "Shabab talk" the reason behind drawing Muhammad
صحفية عربية بشارلي إيبدو تكشف في شباب توك عن سبب اختيار كاريكاتور النبي محمد
Posted by: DW عربية (A German Arabic speaking TV channel)
Top ten comments (skipping one comment written in the Moroccan dialect that I don't understand):
1-Why don't you mock the Holocaust if you were honest? (in claiming that you have the right to mock anything). But you are just hypocrite liars.
طيب استهزاو بالهولوكوست لو انتم صحيح لكنكم منافقين وكذابين ودجالين
2-You have the right to mock god or whichever prophet you want. And we have the right to behead you. You are free with your choices and we are free to kill you.
من حقك ان تستهزئي بمن تريدين من الانبياء ورب العالمين ... ومن حقنا قطع رقبتك انت حرة بإختيارك ... ونحن احرار بقتلك
3-If someone made an offensive drawing of your mother or father what would you do?. Anas Bin Malik – may Allah be pleased with him – said: The prophet – peace be upon him- said: None of you is considered a believer until he has loved me more than he loves his father, sons and anybody else.
مثلا اذا اي احد قام برسم امك او ابوك في صورة مهيئة وسيئة ؟؟ ماذا سوف تفعلين ؟؟ عن أنس بن مالك رضي الله عنه قال: قال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم: (لا يؤمن أحدكم حتى أكون أحب إليه من والده، وولده، والناس أجمعين).
4-And we have the right to exterminate you with bullets and then throw your bodies to dogs. If the freedom of your speech has no limits then you have to accept the freedom of our actions.
ونحن من حقنا ابادتكم بالرصاص ورمي جثثكم للكلاب ان كانت حرية اقوالكم لا ظابط لها فلتتسع صدوركم لحرية افعالنا
5-I feel sick and disgusted by this journalist who sadly belongs to my country Morocco and she bears an Arabic name. I feel sorry for her. she talks shamelessly as if Charlie Hebdo is above sacred beliefs. I don't find words to describe you but I despise you in the strongest way and in all sorts of despising.
أشعر بالاشمئزاز و الغثيان من هذه الصحفية التي للاسف تنتمي الى بلدي المغرب و تحمل اسما عربيا و اشعر بالشفقة عليها مما تتحدث عنه بكل خزي و عار و صلف و كان شارلي ابدو فوق المقدسات. لا اجد الكلمات التي اصفك بها و لكنني احتقرك اشد احتقار و بكل انواع الاحتقار
6-You democrat (who claims democratic values) can you draw a caricature mocking the holocaust?.
يا دمقراطيه هل ممكن ترسمي كراكتير وتسخري من محرقه اليهود
7-This is a talking animal.
هاذي حيوان ناطق
8-A vile shameless person.
شين وقوي عين
9-She says ridiculous nonsense. She compares between Muhammad the prophet of Allah and a head of a government or an MP. If you ask her to mock a Jew or Semitism as they call it then she would shut her mouth.
كلام تافه بعيد عن المنطق. تقارن بين نبي الله محمد (ص) وبين رئيس حكومة و نائب ، لو طلبت منها تسخر من يهودي او السامية كما يسمونها كانت حطت بتمها صرماية و سكت
10-You whore.
يا عايبة

1-This is the punishment for anyone who insults the prophet of Allah. What great men are who did this. God bless you. Peace be upon Muhammad and his household. هذا جزاء كل من سب رسول الله. لله در من فعل هذا بارك الله فيكم. وصل اللهم على محمد وعلى ال محمد
2- They called this incident terrorism, but didn't call the following incidents terrorism. ((And never will the Jews or the Christians approve of you until you follow their religion)) Quran 2:120. May Allah make Muslims victorious. Who started world war one? Not the Muslims. Who started world war two? Not the Muslims. Who killed 20 million of Indigenous Australians? Not Muslims. How fired nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Not the Muslims. Who killed more than 100 million native American Indians in north America? Not the Muslims. Who killed 50 million native Indians in south America? Not the Muslim. Who enslaved 180 million Africans and threw the bodies of 88% into the ocean? Not the Muslims. Who killed ten thousand innocent children in Palestine? Who killed hundreds of thousands of Muslims in Burma? Who crucified Muslims in Andalusia and ate their flesh in an unimaginable act of barbarism? So what France did to Algerian Mujahideen (Jihad fighters) wasn't terrorism. What France did to Moroccan Mujahideen wasn't terrorism. What America did in Iraq and Vietnam isn't terrorism. What the Spanish Inquisition the Kingdom of Castile did wasn't terrorism. What crusaders did in Jerusalem wasn't terrorism. What Italy did to Libyan Mujahideen wasn't terrorism. What china is doing in Turkestan isn't terrorism. What's happening to Muslims in central Africa isn't terrorism. What's happening to Myanmar's Muslims isn't terrorism. What the state of the sons of Zion is doing in Palestine isn't terrorism. Sadly when anything happens, Muslims get accused of it.
ووصفو الحادثه بالارهاب ولكن لم يوصفو هالاحداث بالارهاب ولن ترضى عنك اليهود والنصارى حتى تتبع ملتهم اللهم انصر المسلمين من بدأ الحرب العالم الأولى ليسوا مسلمين بدأ الحرب العالمية الثانية؟ ليسوا مسلمين! من قتل حوالي ٢٠ مليون من السكان الأصليين الاستراليين؟ ليسوا مسلمين! من أطلق القنابل النووية في هيروشيما و ناغازاكي؟ ليسوا مسلمين! من قتل أكثر من ١٠٠ مليون هندي أحمر في أمريكا الشمالية؟ ليسوا مسلمين! من قتل أكثر من ٥٠ مليون هندي أحمر في أمريكا الجنوبية؟ ليسوا مسلمين! من استعبد أكثر من ١٨٠ مليون أفريقي ورمى ٨٨٪ ممن قتلوا في المحيط الأطلسي؟ ليسوا مسلمين! لا ليسوا مسلمين! من قتل ١٠٠٠٠ طفل في فلسطين دون أي ذنب. من الذي قتل مئات الألوف من مسلمين بورما من الذي صلب المسلمون في الأندلس وأكل لحومهم في وحشيه لايمكن تصورها. فليس ما فعلته فرنسا بالمجاهدين الجزائريين إرهابا. ليس ما فعلته فرنسا بالمجاهدين المغاربة إرهابا ليس ما فعلته أمريكا بالعراق وفيتنام إرهابا ، ليس ما فعلته قشتالة في الاندلس من محاكم التفتيش إرهابا، ليس ما فعله الصليبيون في القدس إرهابا ليس ما فعلته إيطاليا بالمجاهدين الليبيين إرهابا ، ليس ما تفعله الصين بتركستان إرهابا، ليس ما يحدث لمسلمي افريقية الوسطي إرهابا، ليس ما يحدث لمسلمي ميرامار إرهابا ، ليس ما تفعله دولة بني صهيون في فلسطين إرهاباً للاسف اي شيء حدث ينسبونه للمسلمين
3-(Regarding the footage of one of the attackers shooting at the head of a French police officer) He gets shot in the head by an assault rifle yet no blood comes out!!!! With a smaller weapon you can see his brains out, not only the blood. Please stop fabricating these hoaxes on Muslims. And don't assault the last of prophets under the pretext of freedom of expression. True is Allah when he says: ((And never will the Jews or the Christians approve of you until you follow their religion. Say, "Indeed, the guidance of Allah is the [only] guidance." If you were to follow their desires after what has come to you of knowledge, you would have against Allah no protector or helper.)) Quran 2:120
يصاب برأسه برشاش ولاينزل دم!!!! بسلاح ربع او نصف او فرد تلقى مخه نازل مو بس الدم. حدث العقل بما يعقل وبطلوا تلفيق افلام اكشن ضد المسلمين، ولاتعتدون على خاتم الانبياء تحت مسمى حرية التعبير حقد دفين. صدق سبحانه (وَلَنْ تَرْضَى عَنْكَ الْيَهُودُ وَلا النَّصَارَى حَتَّى تَتَّبِعَ مِلَّتَهُمْ قُلْ إِنَّ هُدَى اللَّهِ هُوَ الْهُدَى وَلَئِنِ اتَّبَعْتَ أَهْوَاءَهُمْ بَعْدَ الَّذِي جَاءَكَ مِنَ الْعِلْمِ مَا لَكَ مِنَ اللَّهِ مِنْ وَلِيٍّ وَلا نَصِير)
4-Praise be to Allah. I noticed that in the minute 0:21 Hollande (the French president) said that the attack is an attack on one of the principles of the country which is freedom of expression. Note how he called it "freedom of expression" rather than "an assault on religions" or "racism". This is the end of whoever calls for racism.
لاحظت انه في الدقيقة 0:21 ان اولاند قال ان الاعتداء يمس مبادء الدولة هي حرية التعبير. ركزوا معي أسموه ( حرية التعبير ) و لم يسموه ( الإعتداء على الأديان ) أو العنصرية. و هذا مصير من يدعو للعنصرية
5-Thanks to the real men.
شكرا للرجال
6-Real men in this age when real men no longer exist.
رجال في زمن انعدم فيه الرجال
7-They deserved it. I swear they (the attackers) are heroes. An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.
بيستاهلو ولله انن ابطال العين بل عين والسن بسن ولبادي اظلم
8-"A poison cooker will one day be poisoned by his own poison" (A saying). For four years you have been financing and supporting terrorism in Syria. Surely it will come back at you. "The magician has been hurt by his own magic".
طباخ السم رح يذوقه. صارلكن 4 سنوات تمولوا و تدعموا الإرهاب على سوريا. من المؤكد رح يعود عليكن. و نقلب السحر على الساحر
9-What donkey would believe this narrative? (conspiracy).

Title: Moment of the attack on Charlie Hebdo newspaper in Paris
لحظة الهجوم على صحيفة "شارلي ايبدو" في باريس
Posted by: Alarabiya
1-The martyr Sheikh Osama Bin Laden said: "My we perish if we don't rise up for our prophet." If your freedom of speech has no limits then accept our freedom of action.
الشيخ الشهيد اﻻمام أسامة بن ﻻدن :ثكلتنا أمهاتنا أن لم ننتصر لنبينا. إذا كانت حرية أقوالكم لاضابط لها فلتتسع صدوركم لحرية أفعالنا
2-May Allah make our Islamic state victorious :)
اللهم انصــــــــــــــــار دواتنا الاسلاميــــــــــــــــــــــــــــة :)
3-Thousands of Palestinians die on the hand of infidels yet no body accuses them of terrorism. They call it self-defense and find them a thousand of excuses. But when 12 insects get killed, their killers get accused of terrorism and the whole world rise accusing them yet forgetting that it's them who caused this to themselves. Every action has an opposite reaction. This is the law that we learned from the west (referring to Newton's law). Don't mess with Muslims. Only then we wouldn't hurt you.
يُقتل الألوف بفلسطين على أيدي الكفار ولا يتهم أحد أعمالهم بالإرهاب ويسمونه دفاع ويلتمسون لهم الف عذر ولما تقتل12 ذبابة يتهمون قاتلهم بالإرهاب وتقوم الدنيا كلها باتهامهم وينسون انهم هم من جنوا على أنفسهم. لكل فعل ردة فعل هذا هو القانون الذي تعلمناه من الغرب. لا تعبثوا مع المسلمين ولن يمسوكم بشر
4-Aren't these actions a form of freedom of expression?. This attack might be a new form of expression. اﻻ تعتبر هذه اﻻعمال من حرية التعبير. فقد يكون هذا هو أسلوب جديد من أساليب التعبير
5-This filthy newspaper couldn't understand that they were testing the patience of Muslims for a long time. Today we can say that they got what they deserved. They were warned over and over that messing with the sacred beliefs of Muslims will cause serious consequences. But they kept doing what the devil was telling them to do. As for the attackers, in my view and in the view of any faithful Muslim, they are heroes. And they sent a clear message to the world that says: Observe your limits or your existence will end.
هذه الجريدة الحقيرة لم تفهم أنها كانت تختبر صبر المسلمين و لمدة طويلة .. و اليوم نستطيع القول أنها قد نالت ما تستحق .. لقد تم تحذيرها مرارا و تكرارا أن العبث بمقدسات المسلمين سوف يجني عليها تبعات خطيرة .. لكنهم واصلوا القيام بما تمليه عليهم شياطينهم من الانس و الجن .. أما منفذي الهجوم فهم في نظري و في نظر كل مسلم غيور على دينه هم أبطال .. و قد قدموا رسالة واضحة لكل العالم مفادها : ( ألزموا حدودكم أو ينتهي وجودكم ) .
6-The Attack might be preplanned with the help of the magazine or one of its employees. There are many possibilities for why this happened. It might be for a French internal policy reasons or something else. History proves that the enemy is very wicked and dishonorable. The enemies of the nation of Islam are planning all day to achieve preplanned goals.
قد يكون الهجوم مدبر ومخطط له ومنسق مسبقا مع المجله او احد منتسبيها هناك احتمالات كثيره قد يراد منها ابعاد اخرى ليست كما يتصورها الكثير قد تكون سياسيه داخليه او تكون اثاره شئ ما اثبت لنا التاريخ ان العدو شديد المكر والخسه والخبث وهم اعداء الامه يخططون ليل نهار لاجل اهداف مسبقه الدفع
7-We don't want a cultural dialog. To each his religion. Recently some mosques in Europe were burned down. We don't need them we will stay in our Islamic countries.
لا نريد حوار حضارات لكل دينه مؤخرا حرقت عدة مساجد في اوروبا نحن لسنا بحاجة اليهم سنبقي في بلدننا الاسلامية ..
8-This is 100% the work of intelligence services. The consequences will show you the true reasons behind this even though the reasons are already obvious.
عمل مخابرات 1000بالمئة... وستبين لكم النتائج حقيقة الاسباب... وان كانت واضحة المعالم
9-Fishy timing. When for the first time we have a strong European sympathy towards Arabs (because of refugees who drowned on their way to Europe) that translated to actions on the ground, a group of religious nut jobs deliver one of their stupidest terrorist attacks. Netanyahu (the Israeli prime minister) should send them a thank you letter. توقيت غريب -- فى وقت فيه تعاطف اوربى قوى مع العرب ولاول مره يترجم الى قرارات فاعله يتحفونا مهاويس الدين بواحده من اغبى عماليتهم الارهابيه ----- المفروض نيتن ياهوو يبعتلهم برقيه شكر و اعزاز

1-Hahahaha all of France has gathered against only two brave heroic Muslims. You don't know what to Muslims means the status of our master Muhammad – peace be upon him- . This is a simple warning from us not to mock the master of Adam's offspring, the best of whom has ever walked on earth and the beloved of Allah. Don't mess with fire. May our heroic martyrs rest in peace.
ههههههههههه كل فرنسا على اثنين من المسلمين الأبطال الشجعان ..انتم لا تعرفون قيمة سيدنا محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم عند المسلمين هذا تحذير بسيط منا عند تطاولكم على سيد والد آدم يوم القيامة وخير بشر خطى على الأرض وحبيب الرحمن والشفيع وارفع لواء الحمد يوم القيامة لاتلعبو بالنار ورحم الله شهدءنا الأبطال
2-The whole problem is related to religion yet at the same time Al-Azhar is in deep sleep. (Al-Azhar is Sunni Islam's most famous university).
الفتنه كلها فتنه دينيه والازهر نايم بيشخر صباح الفل
3-Kebab smoke. (The video shows smoke)
دخان كباب
4-Did Russians put flowers in front of the embassies of the countries that millions of its people were killed in cold blood? (commenting on Russians putting flowers at the French embassy). Doesn't the Russian people have eyes to see? And we thought they were impartial people. Or do they see only through the eye of lies and double standards?. The Zionist media makes a huge deal out of a small group that got killed in France, yet they don't ask the question: why?. It's as if I am looking at a new 11th September and the same excuses to destroy what's left of the Muslim world. This was orchestrated by intelligence services. The intellectual level of western governments has become at the absolute bottom. This is the filthy Zionism. One day everybody will see the truth. May peace be upon Muhammad and his household.
هل وضع الروس ورود حمراء امام سفارات الدول التي قتل منها الملايين بدم بارد ، اليس للشعب الروسي وكنا نظنه المنصف والمحايد عينان يرى بها ؟! ام لا يرى الا بعين الدجّال الواحده ، و كيلٌ بمكيالين !!؟ الاعلام الصهيوني يقوم الدنيا ولم يقعدها على نفر قتلو في فرنسا !! ولم يطرح سؤال واحد لماذا؟؟ كأني ارى ١١-سبتمر جديدة ونفس الذريعه لتدمير مابقي من العالم الاسلامي . استخبارات دول سعت وراء هذا العمل المشين المستوى الفكري للغرب اصبح كحكومات في اوضع واخس المراحل .، انها الصهيونيه الخسيسه ،ولكن لايصح الا الصحيح ، اللهم صلَ على محمد وعلى ال محمد
5- Wasn't it enough for them that they ruined Syria, Iraq and Libya and now they are ruining the image of Islam in non-Muslim countries?. May god revenge on every filthy-bearded Wahabi.
ما كفاهم خربو سوريا والعراق وليبيا راحو يشوهو صورة الاسلام في الدول الغير مسلمة...يا الله انتقم من كل وهابي ابو لحية قذرة
6-Finally the world got rid of them.
خلص العالم منهم
7-May they rest in peace.
الله يرحمهم رحمة واسعة
8-Bin Laden is a great warrior.
بن لادن محارب عظيم!
9-A new fabrication to rally hate against Arabs and Muslims. Since WW1 and till now, the west's top goal has been to divide the middle-east and make it miserable.
فيلم جديد للتعبئة ضد العرب و المسلمين من الحرب العالمية الأولى لليوم و الغرب بس همهم تقسيم و تعذيب الشرق الأوسط
10-Hahahahaha France is terrified now when only 12 people have died. Yet France killed one and a half million martyrs. (in Algeria).
ههههههههههههه فرنسا خائفة الان لقد ماتو ١٢فقط لكنها قتلت مليون ونصف شهيد

There are 8 comments only
1-If the west doesn't get rid of the racist policies of Jews and Christians then what comes next will be worse.
اذا لم يتخلص الغرب من سياسه اليهود العنصريه والمسيحيه العنصريه فالقادم اخطر
2-Here's a video that exposes the fabrication of Charlie Hebdo attack. (posts a link).
فيديو يكشف مسرحية " شارلي ايبدو "
3-Don't dare us on the prophet. The master of mankind, my beloved the prophet of Allah.
إﻻ رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم سيد الخلق ياحبيبي يارسول الله
4-Many reviews indicate that the attack was carried out by the police and that the two brothers were hostages in a Jew restaurant and got killed there.
كثير من التحليلات تدل على ان الهجوم من الشرطه والاخوين ضحايا تم قتلهم محتجزين في مطعم يهودي.
5-I am certain that it's the Jews who did this to push France into war with so called terrorism. The vast majority of Muslims are peaceful to whoever is peaceful to them.
لدي شبه يقين من أن اليهود هم من فعلوها لدفع فرنسا إلى الدخول في الحرب على ما يسمى الإرهاب بكل قوة فالمسلمون في غالبيتهم العظمى يسالمون من سالمهم
6-This is the end of whoever insults the prophet peace be upon him.
هذا هوا مصير كل من يشتم الرسول عليه افضل الصﻻة والسﻻم
7- May Allah damn this despicable paper.
لعنه الله علي هاذي الصحيفه اللعينه
8-They fight and insult Islam, a religion that says there's no god but Allah with no partner. And they say this is freedom of expression yet it's a red line to mock the holocaust or Jews. So you should know it's Masonry and Zionism that spread mischief and divide in the world.
يحاربون ويستهزؤن بالدين الإسلامي دين يدعو أن لاإله إلا الله وحده لاشريك له ويقولون حرية تعبير ولكن خط أحمر ومقدس المساس بالهولوكست واليهود ... إذا عرفتم أن الماسونية والصهيونية هي من تنشر الفساد وخراب البيوت والمجتمعات وسياسة فرق تسد.

Title: Details of the attack on Charlie Hebdo
تفاصيل الهجوم على مقر مجلة "شارلي إيبدو" في باريس
Posted by: RT Arabic
To compensate for the lack of two comments on the previous video, here are the top 12 comments on this video:
1-I swear that the men who killed the ones who insulted the prophet peace be upon him are men of honor and they will be rewarded by god. Listen France, the times of talking and complaints are gone.
الرجال الذين قتلوا الاشخاص الذين اسائو للرسول صلى الله عليه وسلم هم والله الذي خلق النفس من النفس شرفاء ولهم اجر عند الله يا فرنسا قد مضى وقت العتاب وطويناه كما يطوا الكتاب
2-It's time for everybody to stop insulting the prophets of Allah. ((And whoever transgresses the limits of Allah has certainly wronged himself.)) Quran 65:1 .
آن الأوان ان يكف الجميع عن مسيئة انبياء الله "وَمَن يَتَعَدَّ حُدُودَ اللَّهِ فَقَدْ ظَلَمَ نَفْسَهُ"
3-This is a magazine known for creating caricatures insulting religions and especially insulting the prophet of Allah. Honestly, fuck them, and fuck anyone who insults Islam. The attack was the best response to these caricatures. That's if the attack was carried out by the two men. Because it's possible the attack was a conspiracy to make Muslims look bad. Anyway it doesn't matter, they got what they deserved.
هاد مقر المجلة..معروف بالكاريكاتير الساخر...من الديانات ابرزها الاساءة الى رسول الله الكريم....بصراحة....تبا لهم...وتبا..لكل مشوه للاسلام....واعتبر الهجوم اكبر رد.... على هاد الرسومات ان كان من عمل هاد الشخصين.. لانه ممكن تكون .عملية مدبرة...وراءها دوافع لتشويه المسلمين...لا يهم المهم اخدوا الجزاء......
4- The whole world shakes for the murder of 12 people while if 12 Palestinians die in one day it would be normal and a small news that no one would pay attention to. The west regards us as valueless. And Arab rulers know this but all they care about is money and status forgetting that there's a god who sees them. If one thinks about how long would he live? He would live 80 or 100 years. After that he will die and be judged on everything he did. We Muslims are proud of our religion. Those disbelievers who are arrogant towards god, this god is with us with the true religion which is Islam. May Allah burn the west and Jews. Whoever assaults Islam or defame any major Islamic figure deserves whatever happens him.
قتل 12 واحد قامت الدنيا والفلسطينين لو مات 20 واحد باليوم الوضع عادي بيكون رابط تحت نشره اخبار دون اهتمام لذالك ...فكروو جيدا الغرب لا يرون لنا قيمة وحكام العرب يعرفون ذالك بس الحياة الدنيا والمناصب والمال هذا هو همهم بالدنيا ولا يدركون ان هناك رقيب ولو فكر الواحد كم سنه سوف يعيش 80 100 في اخر المطاف هناك حساب عن كل شئ فعله نحن مسلمين فخورين بديننا لانو في الاول و الاخير و الذي خلق هذولا الجاحدين وانكرو نعمته واستكبرو على الخالق هو معنا مع دين الحق وهو الاسلام والغرب واليهود الله يحرقهم جميعا وكل من اعتتدى على الاسلام او فكر يسيء اي شخصيه بارزه اسلاميه فيستحق كل مااتاه من عواقب
5-Who noticed that this TV presenter says "peace be upon him" after the prophet is mentioned? While some Arab TV stations only say "Muhammad" or "the prophet". I salute this presenter.
ن لاحظ مقدم البرنامج يقول محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم ولاحظت بعدة قنوات عربية تقول فقط إما محمد أو نبي الله تحية تقدير لمقدم البرنامج
6-This attack is a repeated hoax but in smaller scale and with a bad execution. The point of it is damaging the image of Islam and reminding people that Islam – as they claim – is a barbaric religion. It's just like 9/11. Honestly this proves the stupidity of the French government and its inelegance service.

1-I wish everyone asks himself these questions: Why does the attack happen at this time? And who benefits from it? And how were the attackers' images shown on media before they even were captured? And who said that those are the same guys who carried out the attack? Give me one evidence that they are the same guys or do you think we have forgotten the Iraqi weapons of mass destruction or do you think that we bought that Bind Laden was killed and thrown into the sea or did you believe it was true that the Afghan holy warriors destroyed tanks by throwing sand at them while shouting "Allahu Akbar". Or that the CIA was shocked these Afgans. This is not a successful attack, it's just that the nation of Islam is stupid.

What the human race is suffering from is mass hypnosis. We are being hypnotized by people like this: newsreaders, politicians, teachers, lecturers.

2019.04.03 23:30 ohamid345 The "If at all there is bad omen, it is in the horse, the woman, and the house" Hadith - In Context

Question:
Assalamu alaykum Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatu
Please explain the following Hadith.
Sahl ibn Sa’d said, “If there is bad luck in anything, it is in houses, women and horses.” [Sahih Bukhari 5095]
Anas ibn Malik said, “A man said, ‘Messenger of Allah, we were in a house and there were a large number of us and we had a lot of property in it. Then we moved to another house and our numbers decreased and our property became less in it (the new house).’ The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, “Go back to it (the first house) or leave it (the second house) ¬ it is bad.'” [Al-Adab al-Mufrad 918]
May Allah grant you the best both in this world and the next Ameen!
Answer:
Wa alaikum salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,
Thank you for your question. Variations of this narration appear in almost all the major compilations of hadith. Due to reading a translation that may not convey the nuance of the meaning, the casual reader may be led to think that this hadith affirms the existence of bad luck, or that women are bad luck.
Neither of these assumptions are true, nor are they intended by the hadith. Belief in superstition is completely forbidden in Islam, and women are the noble partners of men in worshiping Allah Most High, not a bad omen.
If we translate the hadith while considering its linguistic implications, corroborating versions and context, it would then approximately read that the Prophet Muhammad [Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him] said:
“If there was [such thing as] bad omens in anything, they would have been in houses, spouses and horses.” [al-Bukhari, al-Sahih and Muslim, al-Sahih]
Thus, the hadith negates the existence of bad luck or bad omens, and points out three major things in life (where you live, who you marry and your means of transport) which people, after suffering a bad experience with any one of them, often inadvertently fall into superstitious beliefs about.
An example is if there is a house in which every previous owner suddenly died upon moving in, and the new owner just discovered after having moved in. If their faith is not strong, this could prove to be a great source of anxiety for them, despite the fact that they are Muslim who know that everything is in Allah Most High’s control and that superstition is false.
This hadith then becomes the basis of a merciful dispensation. For those whose fear can actually affect their faith and cause hardship, they can separate from the cause of their anxiety in order to relieve themselves and protect their beliefs from doubts, and they would not be blamed for having acted on the basis of superstition if they did so.
Superstition and Fortune-Telling Are Impermissible in Islam
Firstly, it is important to note that fortune-telling and superstitious omens are completely forbidden (haram)to engage in or believe in in Islam. This is because Allah Ta’ala is in complete control of all things, yet in superstition, the benefit or harm in a matter is consigned to other than Allah, such as a spirit, or a force that one begins to believe in, fear and “consult”.
It was the practice of the pre-Islamic Arabs to believe in superstitions and consult the flight pattern of birds (augury) as an attempt to check for a good or bad omen. Islam negated this belief and practice, as this and other hadith show.
The hadith is simply saying that while bad omens are not true, houses, spouses [not “women” as is mistranslated] and riding mounts [read: one’s means of transport] are the things of this world that people most often attach bad omens to.
Another reading of the hadith could mean that while omens are not true, if they had been true, it would have been in these three things. Only a small minority of scholars, namely Imam Malik, held that these three areas were actually exceptions to be susceptible to bad omens.
The majority of scholars disagreed, concurring on the falsehood of all bad omens, citing another version of this hadeeth mentioned in al-Bukhari’s Sahih which begins by clearly negating augury and belief in any force independent of Allah before mentioning the same text as above. [al-Kandehlawi, Awjaz al-Masalik]
Why Houses, Spouses and Horses?
The hadith mentions three things: houses, spouses and horses. They are most often the objects of a person’s superstitious anxiety or pessimism because they are so pervasive in one’s life, and problems can often occur in them. Once a problem occurs in them, someone whose faith is not strong might start getting whisperings in their heart and doubts that it is a sign of bad luck. Scholars also interpret the word “bad omen” here to mean “inauspicious”, or non-conducive to blessings and happiness.
On this meaning, the scholars give the example that a bad omen in a house could be: having bad neighbors, or the house being dark and cramped for space, or be so far from the masjid that one cannot hear the adhan.
In a horse, an example of inauspiciousness could be that it gets tired easily and is unreliable, or that it has never been used for a noble purpose. In modern times, perhaps an analogy could be made to a car which repeatedly breaks down and is associated with many problems.
In a spouse, it could be bad character, or secret flaws, or the tendency to be verbally abusive, or a worldy or greedy outlook. [al-Tibi, Sharh Mishkaat]
Thus, for those in whom feelings of anxiety are becoming harmful to their faith and peace of mind, the scholars say that it is better to move out of a “creepy” house, to respectfully divorce a troublesome spouse, and sell off a problematic means of transport so that one can move on with their lives and their faith.
Does the Hadith Say that Women are Bad Luck?
The hadith does not mean that women, as a gender, are bad luck. Firstly, we have just explained how the hadith does not affirm the existence of bad luck at all, rather it negates it. The translation can thus be misleading.
Secondly, the children of Adam and Eve (peace be upon them) are the ennobled and chosen creation of Allah Most High, and Islam does not see an entire half of the human race as inauspicious, or less blessed, or more inclined to evil than the other half, as perhaps some other religions traditionally have.
Thirdly, women are recounted as sources of blessings in many places. The Qur’an itself refutes the idea that the birth of a girl is a bad omen [Quran 16:58]. In hadith literature, raising female children properly has been mentioned as being a means of salvation from the hellfire, and a means to eternal closeness to the Messenger (Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) in Paradise.
As Imam Sakhawi said:
“And had there not been in [daughters] divine blessings, the pure lineage and prophetic progeny would not have been carried forth through a woman [Fatima, may Allah be pleased with her].” [al-Sakhawi, Maqasid al-Hasana]
However, even the translation of “al-mar’a” into “women” is misleading. The hadith does not simply intend females (al-nisaa). Rather, the word used is also used for “wife” in Arabic. This is further corroborated by the fact that the many commentators of this famous hadith only mention qualities related to marriage in commenting on this term. “Wife” was used because those being addressed were men.
However, we also see that the inauspicious qualities that could be found in a wife could equally be found in a man: bad character, a worldly attitude or a history of bad marriages. As a hadith states, women are the “twin-halves of men” [Abu Dawud, Sunan] and Ibn Hajr al-Asqalani comments that this shows that men and women are equal in rulings unless specified; thus a translation that clarifies the purport would be “spouses”. [Ibn Hajr, Fath al-Bari]
Bad Omens Are Only Upon Those Who Believe In Them
Some scholars have opined that superstitious worries often bring about negative results, not because of bad luck, but because it leads one to become paranoid and actually invite and provoke calamities due to that fear, like a “self-fulfilling prophecy”. [Taqi Usmani, Takmila Fath al-Mulhim]
One version of this hadith adds:
“The bad omen is upon the one who practices the reading of bad omens.” [Ibn Hibban, al-Sahih]
As for the second part of the hadith in the question where the Prophet [Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him] advised the family to move out of the house in which they suffered losses [“then leave it to its own vileness”], this was advised because the family in it had suffered a loss and had already attached a pessimistic view to it. Hence, it was only their negativity that made the house vile, so to relieve their worries despite believing in Allah Most High, it became permissible to move to another dwelling. [al-Baji, al-Muntaqa]
This teaches us the harm of forgetting that Allah Most High is in total control of His creation, and highlights the importance of relying on Him alone, and believing firmly that harm and benefit can come only from Him. And we ask Allah Most High for His protection from calamities, and that He facilitate for us all paths to His pleasure.

-$4.1bn inflow in next two weeks, says Asad Umar
Finance Minister Asad Umar said on Saturday that there will be an inflow of around $4.1 billion in the next two weeks after which the State Bank of Pakistan’s foreign exchange reserves will swell to over $12bn. Addressing a seminar on “Financing to Support Make in Pakistan”, organised by Pakistan Business Council (PBC), the minister said that an agreement has been reached with Abu Dhabi Fund for Development (ADFD) for a loan of $2bn and the amount is expected to be remitted next week.

Pakistan is deindustrializing at an alarming rate, from a high of 17.5pc of the GDP, the share of manufacturing dropped down to 12.1pc in 2018. This drop in the share of manufacturing has led to a reduction in the share of manufactured goods in Pakistan’s exports, besides a reduction in Pakistan’s share in the global exports.” Although the speakers were only given a time slot of 20 to 25 minutes to submit their presentations, they were still able to touch upon a variety of financing issues plaguing their respective sectors and present alternate models that could work as solutions.
