The ONLY means of rectifying EVIL

Imaam Ibnul Qayyim (رحمه الله تعالى) said:

"Whoever ponders upon the state of affairs of the world will find that every affair of rectification is due to Tawheed, singling out Allaah in worship and obedience to His Messenger (Muhammad). And every evil in the world, trial, affliction, scarcity (in livelihood), being overpowered by an enemy and other than that is due to (our) opposition to the Messenger and call to other than (the way of) Allaah and His Messenger. 

Illness Removes Misdeeds

Ibnul Qayyim al-Jawziyyah رحمه الله تعالى

Jabir bin Abdullah (رضي الله عنه ) narrated that the Messenger of Allaah (صلى الله عليه و سلم) asked a woman why she was shivering. She answered it was because of fever and cursed the fever. The Messenger of Allaah (صلى الله عليه و سلم) said:

Do not slander fever, because it takes away many wrong actions, just as the blacksmith’s bellows remove dross and impurities from iron.”
                                            [Sahih Muslim]

It is Allaah’s favour upon you to have your sins erased from your account while you are still alive. Purification becomes excessively more difficult with each step of existence after death. Everybody has sins they need to get rid of. Illness wipes out sins from a person’s account and purifies their record of deeds in the same way that a blacksmith’s furnace purifies metal from its impurities.

Have you recited the Qur'aan today?

Imaam an-Nawawi رحمه الله said:
Reciting the Qur'aan is the most important of adhkar, which should be done regularly. No day or night should be without reciting and it may be attained by reciting a few verses.
[كتبا الأذكـار للنـووي ١٢٢٥/٢]

Ibn Jawzi رحمه الله said: 
The one who has a Mushaf must recite it every day of whatever is easy for him, lest he be from those who have forsaken the Qur’aan.“
[الآداب الشرعية ٢\٣٠٠]

Ponder upon this!

When Umar bin al-Khattab (رضي الله عنه) was walking in the market, he passed by a man who was supplicating,

اللهم اجعلني من القليل اللهم اجعلني من القليل
O Allaah, make me from the few! O Allaah make me from the few!”

So Umar said to him, “Where did you get this du`a’ (supplication) from?” And the man said, “Allaah in His Book says:

و قليل من عبادي الشكور
And few of My servants are grateful.’
(Saba, 34:13)

So ‘Umar wept and admonished himself,

The people are more knowledgeable than you, O Umar! O Allaah make us from Your ‘few’ servants.”

Narrated Abu Huraira  رضي اللّه عنـه:

Allaah's Messenger (صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم) said,

"None of you should walk, wearing one shoe only; he should either put on both shoes or put on no shoes whatsoever."
(Reported by Imam Al Bukhari Muslim and others.)

Sheikh Abdurrazaq Al Badr in the explanation of Shamaail An Nabi of Tirmidhi pg. 101
 
It is mentioned that a questioner asked Ash Sheikh Ibn Baaz رحمه الله:

"If the second shoe is a footstep or two away from me should I walk towards it with one shoe?"

The Sheikh Said:
If you are able to not oppose the Sunnah even if it be with one step, then do that (meaning don't oppose the Sunnah even if it be with one footstep

SIN....SIN



"Whoever says:

سُبْحَانَ اللهِ وَ بِحَمْدِهِ.
 
SubhanAllaahi wa bihamdihi
(Glory be to Allaah & Praise Him).

a hundred times during the day, his sins are wiped away, even if they are like the foam of the sea."

(Sahih al-Bukhari; #7:168, 

Sahih Muslim; #4:2071)

Menses at the time of Laylatul Qadr.. what can the sisters do??

by Dr. Saleh As-Saleh (رحمه الله) - (Transcribed)

 Sisters who have their natural blood on these days should NOT give up!!

The woman in her menses in her last ten days of Ramadhan is still beneficial for her to get up in the last third of the night to make du'aa as she cannot make salaah, of course. It is beneficial to make du'aa in the third of the night and this is open for the one who is in a state of ritual purity or ritual impurity. So there is nothing wrong with that. And the woman in menses also could recite Qur’aan and could make remembrances. All of that, and we can refer you to the book, Natural Blood of Woman by our Sheikh Ibn Uthaymeen رحمه الله.  

If a sister on her menses during the last ten nights, is she allowed to do prayer on these nights?
No. She can do anything except the prayers and fasting. She can invoke Allaah (سُبحانه وتعالى). She can invoke Allaah with this du'aa. She can give charity. She can do all good actions of worship except for praying and fasting. And by the way, a comment on this answer, for all the sisters: a woman who gets her menses during this time – this is a matter prescribed by Allaah. They should NOT feel in anyway, saddened at all. Why should they feel sad? Even a little bit, when Allaah (سُبحانه وتعالى) prescribed this matter upon them? This is a very important matter. They shouldn’t have any kind of objection what so ever. They are NOT going to be deprived of anything that Allaah (سُبحانه وتعالى) bestowed of his favors because of this.

Ramadhan Reminder ..

Now that Ramadhan is so close & many different types of food will be prepared, remember this:

It is from the Sunnah of our Messenger
صلى الله عليه و سلم to allow the food to cool before eating it: It has been authentically reported from Abu Hurairah رضي الله عنه that he said:

 One should not eat the food until its steam goes away.”
  [Sunan al-Baihaqee] and graded as “Saheeh”
by Sheikh Nasirudeen al-Albaanee (رحمه الله تعالى) in al-Saheehah (1/748)

Punishment of Not Paying Zakaah !!

Image result for zakaah


Abu Hurairah (رضي الله عنه ) reported: The Messenger of Allaah (صلى الله عليه و سلم) said,

Any person who possesses gold or silver and does not pay what is due on it (i.e., the Zakat); on the Day of Resurrection, sheets of silver and gold would be heated for him in the fire of Hell and with them his flank, forehead and back will be branded. When they cool down, they will be heated again and the same process will be repeated during the day the measure whereof will be fifty thousand years. (This would go on) until Judgement is pronounced among (Allaah’s) slaves, and he will be shown his final abode, either to Jannah or to Hell.”

It was asked, “How about someone who owns camels and does not pay what is due on him (i.e., their Zakat)?” He
(صلى الله عليه و سلم) replied, “In the same way the owner of camels who does not discharge what is due in respect of them (their due includes their milking on the day when they are taken to water) will be thrown on his face or on his back in a vast desert plain on the Day of Resurrection and they will trample upon him with their hoofs and bite him with their teeth. As often as the first of them passes him, the last of them will be made to return during a day the measure whereof will be fifty thousand years, until Judgement is pronounced among (Allaah’s) slaves, he will be shown his final abode either to Jannah or to Hell.”
