Did Prophet Muhammad Initiate Wars Against Peaceful Neighbors?

By Abu Amina Elias / 30 May 2013

Question:

Did Muhammad declare war against people because they did not embrace Islam?

Answer:

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

The Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, did not initiate war against anyone who offered to make peace with him. War is a last resort in Islam for the physical defense of the community and it is not a means to force people to enter Islam. Peaceful coexistence among different religions is highly preferred over conflict.

"And the Moon is eclipsed, and the Sun and the Moon are fused together, on that Day man will ask: "Where can I run?" No indeed! There will be no safe place. That Day, the only resting place will be your Lord." (Surat al-Qiyama, 8-12)

 

Bayah & the Importance of a Spiritual Guide/Murshid

 

By Muhammad Irfan Kas / 17 May 2013  

Pledging allegiance, also known as taking bayah or bayt, is a tradition from the times of Beloved Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him).

Once such example of this is when the Noble Companions pledged oath to him under the tree. In this incident, each Companion placed their hand in the hand of the Beloved Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), and affirmed their faith in the oneness of Allah (tawheed).

 

Reproach For Not Adding "In Sha' Allah" When Making a Promise

By Mufti Muhammad Aashiq Ilahi Bulandshahri / 7 May 2013

"And never say with regard to anything, 'I will certainly do so tomorrow.

Unless (you say), 'By Allah's Will.' Remember your Lord when you forget, and say, 'I have the hope that my Lord will guide me to what is closer thereto in direction.'" - Surah Kahaf 18:23-24

 

Jealousy – A SIN

Source : Navedz.com / 3 May 2013

Jealousy (Hasad) is a disease of the heart. It is, perhaps, one of the oldest problems of human beings. Some Islamic scholars say that this is the first sin that was committed. When Allah said to the angels to bow down to Adam, Iblis refused to bow because he was jealous of the honor that Allah gave to Adam. He said to Allah, “Do You see? This one whom you have honored above me, if You give me respite to the Day of Judgment, I shall surely bring his descendants under my sway, all but a few.” (Al-Isra’ 62)

 

Backbiting and Slander

By C. Mofty / 2 May 2013 

Islam is a religion of peace, love and compassion which teaches us that we should respect the honor, reputation and privacy of others. Lies, suspicion, backbiting, slander, and gossip are destructive, major sins that go against what Islam stands for and sow enmity and discord among Muslims.  They cause hostilities between family members, neighbors, and friends.  Therefore, Islam clearly defines and prohibits them in the severest of terms.

 

The Greatest Sin…

Source : WhatisIslam.org.uk / 30 Apr 2013

The greatest sin is to contradict the purpose of one’s creation. Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said that the gravest sin was: “To give God a partner though He created  you alone.”  Worshipping others beside God is the only unforgivable sin, and essentially involves giving the attributes of the Creator to a part or parts of the creation.

 

Lying and Backbiting

By C. Mofty / 29 Apr 2013

What Is a Lie?

A lie is the opposite of truth.  Therefore, anything spoken or written that is untrue and deliberately meant to deceive is a lie.  A lie is something which is baseless, unreal, made-up, distorted or it can be an exaggeration.  Lying is forbidden in Islam and condemned by Allah and His Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him).

 

The Call of Islam: Peace & Moderation, Not Intolerance and Extremism

By Sadullah Khan / 29 Apr 2013

Islam is salaam (peace) and tasleem (submission to the Divine). In Islam Peace is the standard, it is the principle, and each person of faith has the moral obligation to maintain peace, without compromising on justice and truth. Islam invites to the subul as-salaam (pathway of peace); peace of mind, peace of conscience, peace in the family and society, peace with one's Creator and His creation. One of the attributes of the Divine is As-Salaam (The Source of Peace) and Muslim greeting universally, upon meeting and departing, is as-salamu 'alaykum or "peace be unto you". The final and ultimate reward for human endeavor is Paradise, referred to in the Qur'an as Dar-us-Salaam (Abode of Peace)

 

The Ruling on Istighathah

By Allamah Zafar Ahmad al-Uthmani / 24 Apr 2013

Seeking help from other than Allah is unanimously allowed in some situations, like asking for help from able-bodied living persons in matters ordinarily in their control, with the belief that the being from whom help is sought is only a means and a tool and is not independent of Allah in that action.
