The Excellence of Learning the Quran

Source : Islamweb.net / 20 Mar 2013

The Prophet Muhammad,  sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam, received the revelation of the Quran from Jibreel (Gabriel), may Allah exalt his mention, and conveyed it to people as it was revealed to him from His Lord. He urged his companions, may Allah be pleased with them, to learn and memorize it. A number of companions competed in memorizing and learning it, such as Ubayy Ibn K`ab, `Abdullaah Ibn Mas`ood, Zayd Ibn Thaabit and Mu'aath Ibn Jabal, may Allah be pleased with them. The Prophet, sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam, was proud of them and said:

“Learn the recitation of Qur'an from four: `Abdullaah Ibn Mas`ood, Saalim, the freed slave of Abu Huthayfah, Mu`aath Ibn Jabal and Ubayy Ibn Ka`b.”  [Al-Bukhaari and Muslim]

 

Prophet Muhammad's (pbuh) letters to various kings

By Hadrat Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmud Ahmad / 20 Mar 2013

After settling down in Medina on return from Hudaibiya, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) instituted another plan for the spread of his Message. When he mentioned this to the Companions, some of them who were acquainted with the customs and forms observed in the courts of kings told the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) that kings did not entertain letters which did not bear the seals of the senders. Accordingly the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) had a seal made on which were engraved the words, Muhammad Rasulullah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him).

Islam: No Place to Immunity

Source : The-faith.com / 18 Mar 2013

It is widely known that some important persons in any given land are given extraordinary privileges and immunity. They are not treated like the ordinary people and laymen.

In the matter of fact, the point of Islam can be reflected clearly in the following verse:

“ …Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you…”(Al-Hujurat 49:13)

 

Rules of Joking in Islam

Source : Islamcan.com / 16 Mar 2013

Some people joke too much and it becomes a habit for them. This is the opposite of the serious nature which is the characteristic of the believers. Joking is a break, a rest from ongoing seriousness and striving; it is a little relaxation for the soul. ‘Umar ibn ‘Abd al-‘Azeez (may Allah have mercy on him) said:“Fear joking, for it is folly and generates grudges.”

 

The Universal Message of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ

By Zeki Saritoprak / 16 Mar 2013

Theologically speaking, the universality of Prophet Muhammad's message (peace and blessings be upon him) comes from the concept of Allah who is the God of all, not only the God of Muslims.

Allah describes Himself in the first chapter of the Qur'an -which is recited by all Muslims around the world in their five daily Prayers- as "Rabb al-`Alamin" i.e. the Allah of all creation. Whether humans are aware of this fact or not, Allah is the God of all mankind - Muslims, Christians, atheists, etc. - regardless of their differences. Allah is the Creator of everything, with no exception. The Qur'an declares that a gigantic star and an atom are shoulder to shoulder, worshipping Allah; flies and elephants are brothers and sisters; all of creation is here to help us understand the meaning and the mystery of the universe.

What is Aqiqah?

‘Aqīq consists of giving a name to the baby, shaving its hair, and offering a sacrifice.  It is  recommended that the new-born baby should be given either a compound name containing one of the most beautiful names of Allah (e.g. ‘Abd al-Hamīd), or the name of holy figures.

Narrated Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him): Jibril (Gabriel) came to the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) and said: "O Allah's Messenger! This is Khadijah, coming to you with a dish having meat soup (or some food or drink). When she reaches you, greet her on behalf of her Lord (Allah) and on my behalf, and give her the glad tidings of having a palace made of Qasab in Paradise, wherein there will be neither any noise nor any toil, (fatigue, trouble, etc.)." [Al-Bukhari]

 

Zikr of Allah

Abu Darda (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that Rasool Allah ﷺ said,“Should I not tell you of such a thinga which are the best and purest deeds in the court of your Lord, high in ranks (darajat), better for you then spending gold and silver (in Allah’s path), and better than slaying the neck of the enemy during war? The Sahaba said, “Yes, Oh Rasool Allah !”  He said,“It is Zikr of Allah.” (Tirmizi)

Here are some dua’a to make when under stress and experiencing anxiety. They are a means of dispelling fear, of seeking forgiveness of Allah, seeking His aid, protection and guidance. They are the words of the Messenger of Allah (sall’allahu alayhi wasallam) and hence anyone that sincerely makes these dua during times of great need Allah will always answer the dua of the sinere seeker. May they be of benefit to us all for there is not a time in the life of a believer when he or she does not need the protection, guidance and mercy of Allah.
