Wearing a Watch: Which Hand?

By Muhammad ibn Adam Darul Iftaa / 6 May 2013

In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful,

Ten Principles for Those Seeking the Path of Allah

By Imam Ghazali / 6 May 2013 

Principle 1: Have a sincere, unwavering intention.  Prophet Muhammad ﷺsaid, “each person will be rewarded for what he intended” (Muslim). This calls for determination in the heart to continuously act or to abstain from something only for God’s sake. A sign of having sincere intentions is that one does not change his resolve for fleeting reasons; what is done for God, the Truth, should not be forsaken to please His creation.

Islam is a complete way of life, each and every aspect is designed by our Creator to advance happy, healthy communities and ease the path to eternal bliss in Paradise. In today’s society modesty is seen as a sign of weakness or insecurity. This is not the case in Islam, where modesty is seen as a sign of respect for oneself and others.

“Purification of the soul” deals with the heart. Hearts cannot obtain their desire unless they are connected with their Lord.  They cannot connect with their Lord unless they are “pure,” because Allah is Pure and only accepts what is pure. The purer the heart, the closer it will be to its Lord and enjoy being with Him. 

 

The Greatest Sin…

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.

Angel Jibrail (peace be upon him) told Rasulullah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) the following incident about a man in the past who worshipped Allah Ta’ala continuously for 500 years. He was granted a shelter on top of a mountain that was surrounded by salty water. However, Allah caused a stream of sweet water to flow through the mountain for that individual. The man would drink from this water and use it to make ablution. Allah Ta’ala also raised a pomegranate tree from which the man would eat one fruit every day.
