(May Allah be pleased with him) in the Shafi'i Mosque in Cairo.

IMAM SHAAFEE (150 A.H. - 204 A.H.) :
Mohammed bin Idris Al Shaafa'ee (radi Allahu anhu) famously known as Imam Shaafa'ee was born in 150 A.H. and belonged to the Quraish tribe.


When he was 10 years old, he came to Makkatul Mukarramah from Palestine where he grew up. He was very intelligent and had an excellent memory. He memorized the entire Holy Quran at the age of 7. By the age of 15, he had memorized the entire Muwatta of Imam Maalik (radi Allahu anhu). Before the age of 20, he studied Islamic Jurisprudence under the Mufti of Makkatul Mukarramah, Sayyiduna Muslim bin Khalil al Zanji and also Sayyiduna Sufyaan bin Uyayana (radi Allahu anhuma). Imam Maalik bin Anas (radi Allahu anhu) was also his teacher.

When the Governor of Iraq visited Madinatul Munawwarah, he was so impressed by Imam Shaafa'ee (radi Allahu anhu) that he persuaded him to become an Administrator. As Imam Shaafa'ee (radi Allahu anhu) was in conflict with the Government officials, he was deported to Iraq and brought in front of Haroun Rasheed who was very impressed with Imam Shaafa'ee (radi Allahu anhu).

He now studied Islamic Jurisprudence under Imam Mohammed Ash Shaybaani (radi Allahu anhu), who was the student of Imam Abu Yusuf (radi Allahu anhu), who was the student of Imam A'zam Abu Hanifa (radi Allahu anhu). Thus, Imam Shaafa'ee (radi Allahu anhu) became a master of both the Hanafi and Shaafa'ee School of Fiqh.

On his way to Egypt, he lectured in Makkatul Mukarramah in the Haram Shareef. Imam Ahmed bin Hambal (radi Allahu anhu), who was studying at the time in Makkatul Mukarramah found great benefit from these lectures. Imam Shaafa'ee (radi Allahu anhu) then went to Baghdad where he spent 3 or 4 years and finally went to Egypt. He was now 50 years old.

In Egypt, scholars from all over the world came to study at his feet. His famous pupils were Sayyiduna Rabi bin Sulayman, Sayyiduna Abu Yacoob Al Ruwayta and Sayyiduna Abu Ebraheem bin Yahya Al Muzani (radi Allahu anhumul ajma'in).

"Kitaabul Umm" and "Ar Risaalah" are the two famous books on Islamic Fiqh written by him.

Some reports say that he was injured seriously by a person called Fityan, while other reports mention that he passed away through natural illness on the last day of Rajab in the year 204 Egypt. Maalik Al Kaamil, the Ayyubid Sultan, built a Mazaar for him in 608 A.H.

Imam Maalik (93 A.H. - 179 A.H.) :
Imam Maalik (radi Allahu anhu) was born in 93 A.H. He was born in the period of the Ummayyad Dynasty. His full name is Maalik bin Anas.


Imam Maalik (radi Allahu anhu's) grandfather and uncle were great scholars of Hadith. Imam Maalik (radi Allahu anhu) learnt Ahadith from his uncle, Sayyiduna Abu Suhail Nafi (radi Allahu anhu). The Imam was a very keen scholar from his childhood days.

Imam Maalik (radi Allahu anhu) had many illustrious teachers. Most of them were great Taabi'i scholars who learnt under the Sahaba. Some of his teachers used to teach in Masjidun Nabawi. He learnt how to read the Holy Quran from Sayyiduna Abu Radim Nafi Abdur Rahman (radi Allahu anhu).

He also learnt Hadith under Sayyiduna Nafi, Sayyiduna Jafer Saadiq, Sayyiduna Mohammed bin Yahya Ansaari, Sayyiduna Abu Haashim Salmah, Sayyiduna Yahya bin Said and Sayyiduna Hishaam bin Urwah (radi Allahu anhumul ajma'in).

Imam Maalik (radi Allahu anhu's) fame spread far and wide and many great scholars sat in his company learning Ahadith and other Islamic legal issues. Some 1300 scholars sat at his feet. They copied the "MUWATTA" from him. The "Muwatta" is a collection of Ahadith by Imam Maalik (radi Allah anhu). Many of his pupils copied the Muwatta, the famous among them being: Sayyiduna Yahya bin Yahya Al Masmudi, Sayyiduna ibn Wahab Abu Mohammed Abdullah and Sayyiduna Abi Abdullah Abdur Rahman Abdur Rahman (radi Allahu anhumul ajma'in).

Even Imam A'zam Abu Hanifa (radi Allahu anhu), his teacher, held Imam Maalik (radi Allahu anhu) in great regard and respect and should sit in his study circle. Imam Maalik (radi Allahu anhu) liked his students to read aloud while he listened. He used to sit on a high chair with students all around taking notes.

He was a great "Muhaddith" (A Scholar of Hadith). He was very careful in selecting Hadith, and after examining them thoroughly used to record it in his Muwatta.

As a Jurist, he was not afraid of giving a "Fatawa" (Legal Islamic Ruling) even if it was against the Caliph. He was once flogged for doing so.

He passed away on the 11th of Rabi-ul-Awwal in the year 179 A.H. He was 86 years old. Imam Maalik (radi Allahu anhu) is buried in Janatul Baqi in Madinatul Munawwarah.

He never wore shoes whilst in Madinatul Munawwarah. He never sat on a horse or used the toilets in this blessed city. He always went out of the city to relieve himself. He used to kiss the old buildings and the remains of old foundations, saying that Sayyiduna Rasulullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) may have walked by, touched it or saw it. Such was his adoration for Sayyiduna Rasulullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam).

Imam Abu Abdullah Ahmed bin Mohammed bin Hambal :
Imam Abu Abdullah Ahmed bin Mohammed bin Hambal (radi Allahu anhu) was born in Marw on the 20th of Rabi-ul-Awwal 164 A.H.


His father, Sayyiduna Mohammed (radi Allahu anhu) was a warrior (Mujaahid) and lived in Basrah, Iraq. Imam Ahmed bin Hambal (radi Allahu anhu) was a very intelligent child, keenly interested in furthering his Islamic education. At the age of 16, he began studying Hadith literature. It is said that he learnt almost a million Ahadith by heart. He became a famous Jurist.

Some of his teachers were Imam Shaafa'ee, Sayyiduna Bishar bin Al Mufaddal, Sayyiduna Ismail bin Ulayyah, Sayyiduna Jarir bin Abdul Hamid and Sayyiduna Yahya bin Said (radi Allahu anhumul ajma'in).

The great compilers of Ahadith, Imam Bukhaari and Imam Muslim (radi Allahu anhuma), including his teacher, Imam Shaafa'ee (radi Allahu anhu), have also reported Hadith from him. Imam Shaafa'ee (radi Allahu anhu), in spite of being the most learned in his time, used to refer to Imam Ahmed bin Hambal (radi Allahu anhu) about certain Ahadith.

Amongst his pupils, the most famous were Sayyiduna Abu Bakr Al Alhram, Sayyiduna Hambal bin Ishaaq and Sayyiduna Abul Qasim Al Baghwi (radi Allahu anhumul ajma'in).


Imam Ahmed bin Hambal (radi Allahu anhu) was a very pious scholar who devoted all his life in the Science of Ahadith and Fiqh. He refused to eat in anyone's house who held a Governmental post. Being extremely poor with no food to eat at times, he used to still refuse to accept charity saying that he had full faith in Almighty Allah.


The most famous among his books are: Kitaabul A'maal, Kitaabut Tafseer, Kitaabul Naasikh wal Mansookh, Kitaabul Zahid, Kitaabul Masaa'il, Kitaabul Fadaa'il and Kitaabul Mansiq.

His most famous book is his "MUSNAD", a kitab in which he collected about 50 000 to 70 000 Ahadith.


Imam Ahmed bin Hambal (radi Allahu anhu), in the later years of his life, was imprisoned and tortured by the ruthless rulers who went against him due to their un-Islamic beliefs and practises. Caliph Mutasim billah forced the Imam to accept the beliefs of the "Mu'tazalis" (a corrupt sect), but he refused, and was beaten to such a degree that his joints were dislocated. He was kept in heavy chains for 30 months in a prison in Baghdad. He still refused to accept the beliefs of the corrupt Mu'tazali Sect and was again beaten till he fell unconscious.

On the 25th of Ramadaan in the year 221 A.H., Caliph Mutasim, in fear of the sin he committed, repented and set the Imam free. Imam Ahmed bin Hambal (radi Allahu anhu) forgave all the people except the Mutazalis. He passed away in the year 241 A.H.

Imam A'zam Abu Hanifa (80 A.H. - 150 A.H.)

Imam A'zam Abu Hanifa (radi Allahu anhu's) full name was Numan bin Thaabit bin Zuta bin Mah. He was born in Kufa in Iraq in 80 A.H. He belonged to the pious period of the Taabi'ins (Successors of the Sahabas).


It is stated in a Hadith Shareef which Imam al-Harizmi reported from Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radi Allahu anhumA) that Sayyiduna Rasulullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: "Among my Ummah, there will come a man called Abu Hanifa. On the Day of Resurrection, he will be the light of my Ummah." Another Hadith Shareef states: "In every century, a number of my Ummah will attain to high grades. Abu Hanifa will be the highest of his time." These two Ahadith are recorded in "Durr al-Mukhtar."

While still in his youth, he met great Sahaba like Sayyiduna Anas bin Maalik, Sayyiduna Sahl bin Saad and Sayyiduna Abul Tufail Amir bin Wathilah (radi Allahu anhumul ajma'in). Imam A'zam Abu Hanifa (radi Allahu anhu) was first brought up as a trader, but soon started taking deep interest in Islamic learning.

He attended the lectures of Sayyiduna Hammad Basri (radi Allah anhu) in Fiqh and then began to study the Hadith. He learnt under great scholars in Kufa. In Basrah he studied under two great Taabi'ie scholars who had learnt Hadith under the Sahaba.

In Makkatul Mukarammah and Madinatul Munawwarah, he learnt under Sayyiduna Ata bin Abi Rabah and Sayyiduna Ikramah (radi Allahu anhuma). In fact, Imam A'zam Abu Hanifa (radi Allahu anhu) had numerous teachers. Some historians say that he learnt Hadith from about 4 000 scholars.

Some of his famous teachers were: Sayyiduna Imam Baaqir, Sayyiduna Imam Jafer Saadiq, Sayyiduna Ali, Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah, Sayyiduna Abdullah ibn Umar, Sayyiduna Aqabah bin Umar, Sayyiduna Safwaan, Sayyiduna Jabir and Sayyiduna Abu Qatadah (radi Allahu anhumul ajma'in).

When his teacher, Sayyiduna Hammad Basri (radi Allahu anhu) passed away, Imam A'zam Abu Hanifa (radi Allahu anhu) was 40 years old and he began teaching. He became very famous and travelled many places. Students from all over the Muslim world came to him to listen to his lectures, interviews and debates. Imam Maalik (radi Allahu anhu) also learnt under him.

When he was 56 years old, Caliph Mansur came to power after the Ummayad dynasty was overthrown by the Abbasids in 132 A.H. Since Imam Abu Hanifa (radi Allahu anhu) opposed the Caliph's ruthless killing of the Ahle Bait, he was arrested. The Caliph offered the Imam the post of a Qaadi (Judge), but he refused. The Caliph Mansur had him beaten with a stick 30 strokes. His feet bled. Caliph Mansur repented and offered Imam A'zam Abu Hanifa (radi Allahu anhu) 30 000 pieces of silver. The great Imam refused once more. He was imprisoned again and thrashed 10 more strokes every day.


In the Month of Rajab 150 A.H., Imam A'zam Abu Hanifa (radi Allahu anhu) passed away while in Salaah. He had been poisoned by the orders of Caliph Mansur. His Janaza Salaah was performed six times and each time 50 000 people took part. People continued to come and pray for him for 20 days after he was buried. He was 70 years old.

In 459 A.H. a Mazaar (Tomb) was built for him by the Seljuki ruler Alp Arsalan. He lies buried in a Tomb situated near Baghdad in Iraq.

Imam A'zam Abu Hanifa (radi Allahu anhu) left behind about 980 students. The most famous among them being:

a. Sayyiduna Qadi Abu Yusuf (radi Allahu anhu)

b. Sayyiduna Imam Muhammed (radi Allahu anhu)

c. Sayyiduna Imam Zufur (radi Allahu anhu)

Imam A'zam Abu Hanifa (radi Allahu anhu) earned his living by trading. Every Friday, he distributed 20 gold coins to the poor for his parents soul. For 40 years Imam A'zam Abu Hanifa (radi Allahu anhu) performed the Fajr Salaah with the Wudu that he made for the Esha Salaah (ie. he did not sleep after the night prayer). He performed Hajj 55 times. He used to recite the entire Holy Quran once every day and once every night. Imam A'zam Abu Hanifa (radi Allahu anhu) had so much of Taqwa (Piety) that for 30 years he fasted every day (except for the 5 forbidden days). He often read the Holy Quran in one rakaah or two. He did not accept any presents from anyone. He wore clothes like those of the poor. Imam A'zam Abu Hanifa (radi Allahu anhu) once said: "I laughed once in my life and I regret it." He talked little and thought much. It is said that at the place where his soul was taken, he read the Holy Quran 7 000 times.

10 Ways to do Da'wah


10 Ways to do Da'wah from the comfort of your home

By Fatima Barkatulla

If you’ve always wanted to be a Da’iyah; to invite people to the Truth, but felt you don’t have time, then you better take a fresh look at Da’wah! Check out these 10 ideas and make your home a Da’wah hub.

1. Bake a cake for your neighbors

It’s amazing what effect reaching out to our neighbors can have. A simple gesture such as

baking a cake for them can really change their perception of Islam and Muslims. It is those little day-to-day interactions that make people think twice about how Islam is often portrayed in the media.

The Prophet Muhammad PBUH (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said:
«O Muslim Women, do not think that any gift is too insignificant to give to a neighbor, even if it is only a sheep’s foot» [Reported by Bukhari and Muslim]

«يا نساء المسلمات, لا تحقرن جارة لجارتها, ولو فرسن شاة»

2. Start a Blog.

Even if it’s to write about an aayah of the Qur’an that has affected you, having a web presence is an effective Da’wah tool. Every time someone Googles: ‘Islam’, they are met with a plethora of links many of which misrepresent Islam. So your web presence means that people are more likely to come across correct information about Islam.

The Prophet PBUH(sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said:
«Convey (my message) from me, even if it is one aayah» [Reported by Bukhari]

«بلغوا عني ولو آية»

3. Phone or write to a friend.

Supporting our sisters in Islam is also Da’wah because while you chat you can help renew a sisters Eaman, give her some timely advice regarding something she’s worried about, and remind her to have Sabr, which all come under ‘enjoining the good.’

Remember that Allah says in the Qur’an: “By Time, Indeed Mankind is in loss, except for those who Believe, and do righteous deeds, and advise one another with Truth and advise one another with Sabr (Patient perseverance).” [Al-Asr 103:1-3]

{وَالْعَصْر(1) إِنَّ الْإِنسَانَ لَفِي خُسْرٍ(2) إِلَّا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالْحَقِّ وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالصَّبْرِ(3)}

4. Send a cheque to a Da’wah organization.

There are plenty of organizations that print booklets or translations of the Qur’an and hold exhibitions to spread the word of Islam. By sending them a donation you will not only be participating in Da’wah, you’ll be rewarded for Sadaqah Jariyyah (ongoing charity) as your donation may cause a ripple effect, touching future generations, or it may mean someone accepting Islam and practicing it.

The prophet PBUH said:
«By Allah, if Allah were to guide just one man through you it would be better for you than red camels» [Reported by Bukhari].

«فوالله لأن يهدي الله بك رجلا واحد، خير لك من أن يكون لك حمر النعم»

5. Call up a Radio Phone-in show.

The society we live in has many social problems: poverty due to debt, absent fathers, criminal youth, abortion, sexual depravity of all kinds. By presenting the Islamic solution to society’s problems you could leave a lasting impression on millions! Islam is being discussed regularly nowadays on all major radio stations. Call up and correct a misconception someone has about Islam and be a guardian of our Deen!

The Prophet PBUH (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said:
«Whoever of you sees an evil action, let him change it with his hand, and if he is not able to do so, then with his tongue, and if he is not able to do so, then with his heart – and that is the weakest of faith» [Reported by Muslim].

«من رأى منكم منكرا فليغيره بيده. فإن لم يستطع فبلسانه. فإن لم يستطع فبقلبه. وذلك أضعف الإيمان».

6. Invite someone round for tea.

Whether it is the Jehovah’s Witness lady, who knocks on your door, or someone else you have met, you can invite them round for an informal chat. Let them learn a little something about Islam. You could just tell them what we believe about the Prophet ‘Isa (as) and you will have conveyed an important part of our message.

7. Write an article for a magazine or website.

There must be something you feel passionately about or an experience you’ve had, that others could benefit from. Put pen to paper and let your ideas flow. Base what you write upon the Qur’an and Sunnah and have it checked by a person of knowledge. It’ll be a chance for you to do a bit of research, increase your knowledge and it may be a valuable resource for other sisters.

8. Start a study circle

Host a small gathering of sisters for an hour every week. Present a short talk about one aspect of Islam you have looked into, or study the tafsir of a particular surah together. Invite sisters who don’t normally go to a circle. Allah will put so much Barakah in your home insha Allah!

The Prophet PBUH (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said in a Hadeeth Qudsi, that Allah says:

«I am as My servant expects Me to be. I am with him when he makes mention of Me. If he makes mention of Me to himself, I make mention of him to Myself; and if he makes mention of Me in an assembly, I make mention of him in an assembly better than it» [Reported by Bukhari]

«أنا عند ظن عبدي بي، وأنا معه إذا ذكرني، فإن ذكرني في نفسه ذكرته في نفسي، وإن ذكرني في ملأ ذكرته في ملأ خير منهم»

9. Be your husband’s Rock.

When we support our husbands’ efforts in Da’wah, we will be rewarded too. Allow him time to spend in this cause and help him in any way you can.

10. Teach your children.

Bringing our children up to understand and love the message of Islam is our most important Da’wah project! Remember that everything you do to increase their knowledge and make them strong, righteous people is priceless and will be rewarded.

The Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said:
«All of you are shepherds and are responsible for their flocks. A leader is a shepherd and is responsible for his flock. A man is a shepherd over his family and is responsible for his flock. A woman is the shepherd in the house of her husband and is responsible for her flock…» [Reported by Bukhari]

«كلكم راع ومسؤول عن رعيته، فالإمام راع ومسؤول عن رعيته، والرجل في أهله راع وهو مسؤول عن رعيته، والمرأة في بيت زوجها راعية وهي مسؤولة عن رعيتها»

Stories for chaste ones


Thanks are only for God and let the peace be on the last Prophet and so:

My sister in Islam:

These are some stories containing lots of lessons and preachments which are talking about two types of women:

The first type: who stuck to her shyness and modesty against seduction and didn't surrender to desires, so she became a model for honor, modesty and morality and, all the women and girls should follow this woman to learn from her shyness and modesty.

The second type: who collapsed in front of the first seduction so, she sold her shyness and honor for an hour of desire and she regretted when regret is useless, so she became a bad model for the woman who has neither honesty nor honor and our women and girls should take care from taking the same path and falling in her swamp.

My shy and modest sister in Islam, you aren't alone in the battle field but there are thousands like you who had taken the same path and preferred modest life to the life of desires and whoredom.

And from them, western women who were born in a society which claims the looseness and shamelessness (impudence) and freedom reveals civilization and personal freedom and despite that those women faced this bitter reality and they confronted that by strength and determination and they refused to wear except the modest clothes and they took the path of good believers and they bared the sarcastic and mocking glances and all kinds of hurt and persecution.

So, become delighted my sister and have a good hope and continue your modest fighting and stick to your veil and your shyness.

The husband was right:

A mean person insisted to call on my home's phone and he wished that I would have a sinner affair with him but I used to refuse, insult him and sometimes I hang up the phone on his face without talking to him.

At last when he became desperate, he wanted to ruin my marriage, he called when my husband was at home and when my husband picked up the phone, he hang up immediately.

The doubts began to attack my husband and our life turned out to estrange and then to separation, but the hardest thing on the woman is that she feels that her husband doesn't trust her.

My husband asked one of his faithful friends for his opinion about me and he was courageous enough in his lying, so he told him, "we have heard a lot about your wife's sinner relations but we didn't tell you because we cared about your marriage and we hoped that she can return to the right path", after that our marriage reached to be a real hell. I went to my husband and in a tranquil moment I swore to him that I am innocent from that and that his friend is a liar, my husband started to doubt about what his friend had said, so he decided to know the number of that devil by joining the service of "the caller Id" but he didn't tell anyone and here was the surprise as this rake was none but his friend who advised him about my case, he was the one who was trying to violate on his home holiness, to attack his honor, to ruin our marriage and destroy our house which we built by love and loyalty.

The top of Chastity:

One of the supplicants says: "I was on a supplication trip to Bangladesh with a medical team who established a camp to cure eye diseases, and then a respected sheikh with his wife came to the doctor hesitatively and when the doctor came close to the woman she started to cry and shake in fear, so the doctor thought that she was suffering from pain and illness and he asked her husband about that, and he replied while trying to prevent his tears that she isn't crying from pain but she was crying because she will be forced to uncover her face to a foreigner, she didn’t sleep last night suffering from worry and confusion and she was blaming me a lot saying: "Do you accept that I reveal my face?!!", and she only came here after I promised her that God approved that in emergency cases and Allah raised above said: “But whoever is forced [by necessity], neither desiring [it] nor transgressing [its limit], there is no sin upon him. ” [Al-Baqara 2:173]

{فَمَنِ اضْطُرَّ غَيْرَ بَاغٍ وَلَا عَادٍ فَلَا إِثْمَ عَلَيْهِ}

Transliteration: Famani Ađţurra Ghayra Bāghin Wa Lā `Ādin Falā 'Ithma `Alayhi

A lesson from an American girl:

That Arabian young man arrived to Ohaio-USA with his modest veiled wife but only few days passed until this woman was drifted by the way of the west life and she was amazed by the claimed western girl's freedom so, she first took off her face cover and at last she took off her veil and she continued by wearing the jeans and colorful shirts, so she became Arabian by blood and western by shape.

At one day this woman entered a mall and while she was in a shop, she saw a completely veiled woman, so she wanted to make fun of her and contempt her sticking to the veil in the land of freedom as they claim so, she told her in a sarcastic way in Arabic: "A veil here, leave this primitiveness (backwardness)", but the other woman looked at her and she didn't reply, so she repeated this insult again and the veiled woman didn't answer except that she said in English: "Excuse me, but i don't know the language that you are using, I am an American", so the Arabian woman was shocked from her wearing to the veil, then the American Muslim woman said in a confident tone: "Listen I am an American, I lived among freedom and shamelessness and I know exactly what disasters had resulted from that freedom but I thank God that he guided me to Islam and legislated veil to me, now our bodies and souls have value after we had been a puppet in the hands of everyone, so you must understand these words you poor woman and watch out for yourself and don't be a bad model (example) for Arab Muslim women", and she gave her a lot of advices until the Arabian woman was amazed and she started to cry, near people from her said that she spent a whole week at home and when she went out she was wearing her modest veil proud with her Islam.

The consequences of tolerance:

She wasn't so determined in replying at that human wolf, but by repeating the phone calls she finally responded to him, but the phone calls increased between them and as a result he asked her for a meeting and after insisting she accepted but under one condition that the meeting shouldn't exceed five minutes and it must be inside the car, they actually met and that devil left her for the first time, so she felt safety with him, so the meeting was repeated and she used to go out with him and sit in the car beside him, and when her dad or the driver drives her to college, she just waits and when this devil comes she used to go out with him and she returns to the college before the time of leaving and then she returns home, one day he took her to a house claiming that it was his sister's house who works in the morning, then he tricked her by giving her a drugging bill and she didn't wake up until this devil has taken from her the most precious thing that every girl has and she became a puppet in his hands, this tragedy was repeated several times hoping that he can show some mercy and marry her but how far, so after he took from her what he needed, he just disappeared and she couldn't find him she knew after it was too late that she was deceived but it was after the disaster had happened and the honor was lost and the modesty was slain.

Leave that for the judgment day:

A man said that: "I adored a woman from my neighborhood so I used to follow her when she went out, so I followed her a lot and she felt that and one day, while I was following her, she stopped, turned to me and said: "Do you need something?", I said: "Yes", she said: "And what is that", I said: "Your friendship", she said: "Leave that for the judgment day". He said: "By God she made me cry and I didn't repeat that again".

God is the greatest, how beautiful is the modesty, how glorious is the shyness, how amazing is the advising, how marvelous is the honor, how great is observing God, how beautiful is the activeness and neglecting (leaving) all the desires, yes leave that for the judgment day, it is a precious advice but no, it is actually a way of living and I wish that our young girls and boys could follow these amazing models instead of following immoral people.

A girl's tragedy:

She didn't have any idea that the result will be like that, she was just playing away from her parent's sight and she was convinced that no one will know about her until the zero hour but the disaster happened, a naïve young flower who had a happy future, while going and returning from the school, she left her veil to go with the wind and left her face cover to be free to show her eyes and cheeks and of course she wasn't away from the eyes of the human wolves who were walking down the streets waiting to capture a naïve victim, no time passed until she found a phone number of one of them in front of her, she didn't hesitate and picked the number, she knew him as a single young man who was far away from his parents, he threw the trap around her till she fell into it and seduced her by his smooth tongue, the sinner relationship started and began to grow up and why not, as the girl had no guidance, he insisted on seeing her and after hesitation that poor girl accepted and I wish that she didn't as she fell as an easy prey in the trap, after seducing her to his house, he didn't delay in slaying her modesty using the knife of betrayal, days passed and she is now pregnant as a result of that sin, waiting for the moment of giving birth to have a contaminated baby with no joy for his birth, when he was born and when her mother discovered the shame of her daughter, she screamed from the gravity of the shock, how could her fourteen years old virgin girl to be pregnant and give birth to a baby?!!

She hurried to the father to tell him about the baby but how far….

As the pigeon was slain and her blood was bled and the result was putting that devil in jail and the girl at one of the reform schools until they make a decision about her, the start point was wearing the veil in a shameful way and the end is?!!!

There is still a door that you didn't close:

The judge "El Tanokhy" said that an army soldier kidnapped a woman from the street and he wanted to rape her, but some of neighbors wanted to prevent him so he fought them and his followers helped him until the neighbors gave up and surrendered, he took the woman inside the house and he wanted to seduce her but she refused so he forced her but she fought him and told him: "I'd prefer to die than doing what you want", so he insisted and she struggled until at the end she collapsed, and when he wanted to rape her she told him: "Hey you, wait until you close the door that you forgot to close", he said: "What door?", she said: "The door that is between you and God as he can see you now", these words affected the soldier and he stepped away from her and said: "Go, God had dispelled your worries", so she went out without him exposing to her...

Two Husbands In The House


Many women -because of feminism- don’t obey their husbands, which is sinful.

Some practicing sisters - they are not realizing that they should obey their husbands. Allah’s Messenger said [meaning]; “If I were to command anyone to prostrate before anyone, I would have commanded the wife to prostrate before her husband, because of the enormity of his right upon her.” [Hasan Sahih Al-Albani]

«لو كنت آمرا أحدا أن يسجد لأحد ؛ لأمرت المرأة أن تسجد لزوجها» حسن صحيح الألباني

There are so many other ahadeeth on the rights of the husband from the wife.

A [non muslim] Noble Prize winner said; The Economical and Social crisis within the western world is due to the both husbands not playing the role they should play.

Meaning: the husband should provide for the family, and the woman should help the husband in the home to raise the children and the household.

He said; the husband should play his major role, and the wife should play her major role in the house and provide for the children…etc. Once each party plays their role, a complimentary relationship will form. The husband is the provider for the house, and the wife uses this provision to grow the fruits (i.e. children).

A Wife as a Companion

It is the nature of the man; when he comes back home from work, he is tired and frustrated – and he wants to see his wife looking at him, smiling and caring for him and giving him attention. If he comes home from work and sees his wife on the phone, or the internet, or her attention isn’t on him in a good way – he will feel frustrated. He will feel that his wife is not for him, and due to this, problems start. Even a small thing will become a major thing because he will be ready to argue due to his previous frustration.

Sometimes women might think they’ve done nothing wrong, not knowing the root of the problem. Men have emotional needs, and these are fulfilled when we see our wives next to us and on our side, and this is what brings his happiness.

By not obeying the husband, he feels that she is an opposition to him, someone who wants to rebel instead of being a partner in support.

Who has more control in the home? The traditional answer would be that the husband has control of more things within the home. Whereas in reality; women have more control of the house issues. They just don’t know it.

How? Men by nature – they don’t want to displease their wives. They don’t want wives to keep nagging. They want peace of mind in their houses. Because of this, he wants to do anything to keep her quiet, pleased…etc.

Advice to women; If you want anything from your husband, ask in a very emotionally pleasing way. You will never get anything from your husband if you act like a man with him.

Famous saying; The man is like a ring in the wife’s fingers, she can move him wherever she wants.

The woman cannot control her husband by lecturing/commanding or forcing him, he will hate her if she is like that. But just by a kiss, you can get whatever you want from your husband.

Their tears affect the man more than anything, instead of them shouting, they can just cry in a humble way and that will melt the husband’s heart and be more effective in putting her message across to the husband.

Unfortunately, many women don’t like to exert this type of etiquette, and this is what usually leads to two husbands’ being in the house who are competing against each other - causing the marriage to break down.

The other half of a man


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

All praise be to Allah alone, and peace and blessings of Allah be upon the Prophet after whom there are no other prophets.

There is has not been a woman on the course of human history who has gained as much as the woman has enjoyed under the law of Islam, where it has returned her to her appropriate status. It has elevated her from the status of lustrous desires and absurdities; and has balanced between her rights and her physical constitution. Islam has honored woman with the greatest honors, and has protected her from humiliation and contempt; it has saved her from corruption and wrongdoing.

When Islam emerged women were at the lowest grades and the basest bottoms, it saved them and placed them in their rightful place. A woman has become, by the religion of Allah, honored and dignified. Islam has identified her duties and obligations as appropriate to her physical build and nature; away from men, and away from everything that offends her modesty and corrupts her morals. It has ordered her to be modestly dressed and to be covered from people, and warned her of wanton display and unveiling; it forbade her from the intermingling out of mercy towards her and fearing for her as well as for honoring her.

How vast the gap is between women in the Islamic society, especially in this country, which has protected their dignity and has preserved their rights, and those which have humiliated and debased women, accepting their wanton display, unveiling and their intermingling with men; they have given women uncontrolled and unchecked freedom that caused their innate nature to set back and their dignity to be robbed. Thus, women have become a cheap commodity to be bought and sold and afterwards be thrown away, after being expired, without pity or mercy.

Saudi women are no less than their peers in other societies as being alleged by the followers of falsehood; rather, they have excelled in many areas over the women of those communities.

She has exceeded all because she is taking constant steps, balancing between her ambition which drives her for learning and hard work and between the preservation of the teachings of her True religion. This equilibrium that adorned the Saudi woman is the secret of her excellence which impressed many people. You see a woman on the peak of her elegance, of cleanliness of core and appearance, and the highest level of cultural and intellectual awareness, while maintaining and preserving all of this by the ornament of her religious and mental veil. She is not lured by the calls of the corrupt nor is she affected by the cries of the fallen. She is aware of what had happened to the daughters of her sex in other societies of moral fall, degradation, humiliation and vulgarity.

In spite of this prestigious high status of the Muslim women in general and Saudi women in particular, unfortunately there are people with little knowledge and dominating ignorance who underestimate the importance of the role of women in this country and describe them as retarded and regressive and accuse the society of mistreating women and plundering them of their rights, and that it has disrupted their potentials. They have been exasperated by the women's adherence to their religion and their preservation of their hijab and morals. They do not want women to be like this; they want them unveiled, wantonly displaying themselves, they want them intermingling with the men and driving cars. They even want the opening of sports clubs for women under the pretext of serving the country and keeping pace with the era and the like of which is not approved by religion nor accepted by morals. It is noteworthy that they illogically link between the role and function of women in society and the joke of her driving a car as if the role required from women in the service of their religion and homeland is taking of the position of a driver!!

And those who advocate for the so-called liberation of women are either ignorant of the reality of what women suffer in other societies, or that they are psychologically defeated and are affected by the Western culture as a model to be followed; they are allured by the glittering blue eyes of Western women, withholding them from seeing the filth emanating from the reality of this moral degradation.

Is it from the innate nature that we take women out from their basic function and tell them that society cannot walk on one leg! What injustice and undervaluation of their rights and their efforts and degradation of their status is greater than this!

Hence, a woman is the sister of a man; she holds a share and he holds another share, but if she equals him in work and function and going out, then she is not called a sister, rather she is called a man!!

It is no secret that the motive behind those writers is not reform, as they claim, but it is the love of corruption and the disease of the hearts and lustrous desires: {In their hearts is a disease (of doubt and hypocrisy) and Allâh has increased their disease. A painful torment is theirs because they used to tell lies.} [Surat Al-Baqarah: 10].

{فِي قُلُوبِهِم مَّرَضٌ فَزَادَهُمُ اللَّـهُ مَرَضًا ۖ وَلَهُمْ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ بِمَا كَانُوا يَكْذِبُونَ} البقرة: 10

Transliteration: Fee quloobihim maradun fazadahumu Allahu maradan walahum AAathabun aleemun bima kanoo yakthiboona

If it is shown to those advocates the method of Allah and His law in the reform of the land and the people, and that their call is but corrupting the earth they become stubborn and brag that they are the reformers: {And when it is said to them: "Make not mischief on the earth," they say: "We are only peace-makers." (11). Verily! They are the ones who make mischief, but they perceive not.} [Surat Al-Baqarah: 11-12].

{وَإِذَا قِيلَ لَهُمْ لَا تُفْسِدُوا فِي الْأَرْضِ قَالُوا إِنَّمَا نَحْنُ مُصْلِحُونَ ﴿١١﴾ أَلَا إِنَّهُمْ هُمُ الْمُفْسِدُونَ وَلَـٰكِن لَّا يَشْعُرُونَ} البقرة: 11-12

Transliteration: Waitha qeela lahum la tufsidoo fee alardi qaloo innama nahnu muslihoona (11) Ala innahum humu almufsidoona walakin la yashAAuroona

But by the grace of Allah the ground of this country is not fragile, through which they can spread their ideas and achieve their desires. Because the approach of this State, may Allah honor it, is not commensurate with their ideas neither is it consistent with their purposes. The issue and the subject of women in the country of monotheism have been done with; the pens have been lifted and dried according to the Quran and the Sunnah and the methodology of the nation's predecessor, upon which this country has been established since the presence of the first Saudi State till this day; women are safe in their seclusion, working for what they have been created for. They are envied by the entire world: Muslim and infidel.

It is regrettable that the call of those writers has some effects on some teenage deluded girls who may be fooled by such calls. They are calls that tackle their feelings and manipulate their emotions. We really wonder when we hear and read about the cries of the Western women here and there, when they call for the necessity of women to return to what is commensurate with their nature and physical composition after the successive concessions led to the plunder of their dignity and chastity, while some of our girls still believe that those who want to take them out of modesty and dignity, under the pretext of giving them their rights wish them goodness and happiness!!

If women call this good; then what is evil?

We tell every woman to beware of falling in the abyss that women in other societies have fallen into. A women in those societies has some excuse that there was no conservative society existent to help her preserve herself and her dignity, and save her rights and status. What is the excuse in her conservative religious society which calls for modesty, chastity, purity and dignity!

From what and why are they liberating you?

O Muslim sister: do you know from what and why are they liberating you?

They want to free you from your pure femininity, from your life and chastity, from your morals and values… They want to free you from your innate nature and your noble status, which has been chosen by Allah for you, they want to free you from all beautiful and pure meanings.

As for why they want to liberate you?

It is in order to facilitate for them leading you, to fulfill their desires and feed their lustrous impulses and to make you a silly vulgar material for their lowdown stories and their falling art.

Sister… They want to free you for things and stuff!! Then why do not you free yourself from their freedom?!

To the jewel of the society


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

Praise be to Allah alone, and peace and blessings be upon him after whom there is no other prophet…

Oh! Jewel of this Nation, preserved of this religion, the fortress of this strong Islamic society, O you who are guarded by goodness and whose faith is cherished: all the jewels can be recompensed if they are stolen, lost or broken except you. Who can compensate us of the Muslim woman, the honorable, the chaste, and the pure?

You, my sister in Islam are a protected pearl, a cherished jewel, without Islam, you are but a toy in the hand of every wicked evil doer, a puppet and a cheap article that are being traded in, or rather being played by human wolves. They deprive her from chastity and dignity and then they throw her out as they throw the kernel.

The difference between the veiled, pure, honorable, chaste woman and the unveiled woman who displays herself wantonly is like the difference between the preserved jewel and the flower, which is in the middle of the road... The veiled woman is preserved in her veil and is kept safe from the hands of the triflers and their eyes.

But the unveiled woman who displays herself wantonly is like the rose in the roadside which has no one to preserve or assist her, so how quickly the hands of the triflers reach for it, then they play with it and enjoy its beauty for free, and when it wilts and dies, they throw it down and people tread on it by their feet. So, what would you choose my Muslim sister?

Know, my Muslim sister that the scholars of religion have assigned eight terms for the veil, so make sure that you memorize them and act accordingly:

First: the veil must cover all and the full body with no exceptions; the face, the two hands, the two feet and the two arms are all from the private parts that must be covered.

Second: the veil must not be an adornment in itself, like that it be decorated, colored with attractive colors, or plaid with silver or golden threads.

Third: it must be thick, strong and not transparent.

Fourth: it must be loose, boggy and not tight lest it would depict some part of her body or that it would show the charm places of her body.

Fifth: the clothes must not be scented or perfumed.

Sixth: the clothes must not be like those of men.

Seventh: the clothes must not be like those of the infidel women: as being short.

Eighth: it must not be a dress of fame, as the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, has said: “if anyone wears a garment for gaining fame, Allah will clothe him in a disgrace garment on the Day of Resurrection, and then He will inflame it with fire” [Authentic: Narrated by Abu Dawûd].

«من لبس ثوب شهرة ألبسه الله يوم القيامة ثوبا مثله ثم تلهب فيه النار وفي لفظ ثوب مذلة» رواه أبو داود، صحيح

O sister, you are more honorable than to be seen by the eyes of the licentious… and you are more precious than to be devoured by the human wolves of the market places… so do not open the evil door by taking off the veil.

O sister… beware of messing with the garment of chastity and decency... It is the symbol of purity and chastity… messing with it is messing with honor and dignity.

And prayers and peace of Allah be upon our Prophet Muhammad, and upon all his family and companions.

Ibn Khuzaymah House

Give from your Heart


One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry.

He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door. Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water.

She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk.

He drank it slowly, and then asked, "How much do I owe you?"

"You don't owe me anything," she replied.

"Mother has taught us never to accept pay for a kindness." He said "Then I thank you from my heart."

As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt stronger physically, but his faith in God and man was strong also. He had been ready to give up and quit.

Years later that young woman became critically ill. The local doctors were baffled. They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in specialists to study her rare disease. Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation. When he heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes.

Immediately he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her room.
Dressed in his doctor's gown he went in to see her. He recognized her at once.
He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to save her life. From that day he gave special attention to the case. After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr. Kelly requested the business office to pass the final bill to him for approval.

He looked at it, then wrote something on the edge and the bill was sent to her
room. She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her
life to pay for it all. Finally she looked, and something caught her attention
on the side of the bill.

She read these words . . . "Paid in full with one glass of milk" (Signed) Dr.Howard Kelly.

Tears of joy flooded her eyes as her happy heart prayed: "Thank You, God, that Your love has spread abroad through human hearts and hands."

Now you have two choices. You can send this page on and spread a positive
message or ignore it and pretend it never touched your heart ..

Stay Sharp!


Once upon a time a very strong woodcutter asked for a job in a timber merchant, and he got it. The pay was really good and so were the work conditions. For that reason, the woodcutter was determined to do his best.


His boss gave him an axe and showed him the area where he was supposed to work. The first day, the woodcutter brought 18 trees.

"Congratulations," the boss said. "Go on that way!" Very motivated for the boss' words, the woodcutter try harder the next day,but he only could bring 15 trees. The third day he try even harder, but he only could bring 10 trees. Day after day he was bringing less and less trees.

"I must be losing my strength", the woodcutter thought. He went to the boss and apologized, saying that he could not understand what was going on.

"When was the last time you sharpened your axe?" the boss asked. "Sharpen? I had no time to sharpen my axe. I have been very busy trying to cut trees."

Our lives are like that. We sometimes get so busy that we don't take time to sharpen the axe." In today's world, it seems that everyone is busier than ever, but less happy than ever. Why is that? Could it be that we have forgotten how to stay sharp?

There's nothing wrong with activity and hard work. But God doesn't want us to get so busy that we neglect the truly important things in life, like taking time to pray, to read. We all need time to relax, to think and meditate, to learn and grow.

If we don't take time to sharpen the axe, we will become dull and lose our effectiveness. So start today. Think about the ways by which you could do your job more effectively and add a lot of value to it.

Daddi Can you give me 10$ ?

A man came home from work late, tired and irritated, to find his 5 year old son waiting for him at the door.

"Daddy, may I ask you a question?"

"Yeah, sure, what is it?" replied the man.

"Daddy, how much money do you make an hour?"

"That's none of your business! What makes you ask such a thing?" the man said angrily.

"I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?" pleaded the little boy.

"If you must know, I make $20.00 an hour."

"Oh, " the little boy replied, head bowed. Looking up, he said, "Daddy, may I borrow $10.00 please?"

The father was furious. "If the only reason you want to know how much money I make is just so you can borrow some to buy a silly toy or some other nonsense, then you march yourself straight to your room and go to bed. Think about why you're being so selfish. I work long, hard hours everyday and don't have time for such childish games."

The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door. The man sat down and started to get even madder about the little boy's questioning. How dare he ask such questions only to get some money. After an hour or so , the man had calmed down, and started to think he may have been a little hard on his son. May be there was something he really needed to buy with that $10.00 and he really didn't ask for money very often. The man went to the door of the little boy's room and opened the door. "Are you asleep son?" he asked.

"No daddy, I'm awake," replied the boy.

"I've been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier," said the man. "It's been a long day and I took my aggravation out on you. Here's that $10.00 you asked for."

The little boy sat straight up, beaming. "Oh, thank you daddy!" he yelled. Then, reaching under his pillow, he pulled out some more crumpled up bills. The man, seeing that the boy already had money, started to get angry again. The little boy slowly counted out his money, then looked up at the man.

"Why did you want more money if you already had some?" the father grumbled.

"Because I didn't have enough, but now I do," the little boy replied. "Daddy, I have $20.00 now... Can I buy an hour of your time?"

The End


I barely knew him, I have seen him in the mosque for some days at different times and for many others I have not.

I warmly greeted him and I was keen to know him. Until one day after Al-‘Asr
(noon prayer), I stood chatting with a colleague outside the mosque while he was coming.
He greeted him and they seemed to know each other; they were schoolmates. We all engaged
in the conversation and I invited them to visit me in my house. They agreed to come the
next day after Al-‘Asr.

I asked my
friend about him, he told me that he was a good character. I wondered why he did not come
to the mosque for days although he was living next door. My friend told me that this guy
had some bad companions in work and when one of them called him, he did not come to the
mosque or attend the prayers and his travels increased.

I prayed
to Allah to make me a cause in his guidance and keep him away from his bad companions. I
agreed with my friends to try to be his new friends and to go out with him as much as
possible in order to keep him back from the bad companionship. The man loved us and our
intimacy increased. Our friendship lasted for a long time; we used to go out together in
the weekends without any previous plans. I have even frequently canceled a lot of my
family’s dates for his sake, as to be a cause in the guidance of one man is better
than the whole world.

The time
passed and I had to move to a new house on the outskirts of the town. I could not call him
for a while, as I did not have a phone there so we were separated for some time. Whenever
I tried to call him in his house from any place, the answer was always, “he is not
here”. I was informed later that he had returned to his bad companions, he deviated
from Allah’s path and went astray after he had tasted the sweet taste of faith. He
ignored his family and returned back to his bad behavior; leaving the congregational
prayers, recitation of Qur’an, valuable books and good company. He listened to songs
and he totally fell behind.

I repented
his state and prayed to Allah for both of us. I have even asked some of the brothers to
return back and go out with him, but after some time a received a sad call from a friend
telling me that the guy was dead. I could not help but saying, “To Allah we belong,
and to Him is our return”.

I wanted
to know what has happened to him as I have tried to contact him many times but I failed to
find him. My friend told me that he has traveled to the East of Asia with his bad
companions and he has taken an over dose! “Over dose of what?” I asked. “Of
DRUGS”, he replied. “ He died there and was put in a bier on the returned flight
with a report stating the cause of his death”, he added.

I was
filled with grief for his bad sad end and I realized that hearts are between the fingers
of Allah, the most Merciful, He changes it as He likes. The man was not sincere in his
repentance (tuba) so he could not proceed, he has even returned to his previous
state. “ To Allah we belong, and to Him is our return”.

I raise my
hands to the sky and supplicate from my entire heart saying: (Oh Allah, the Changer of
hearts, makes my heart steadfast to Your religion).

Quoted from “Al-Zamn
(The next period) written by Abd Al-Malik Al-Kasem (amended).

Have you
seen dear brothers how the man may leave the right path after he tasted the sweet taste of
faith and felt the love of Allah Almighty Who is true when He says, “And keep thy soul content with those who call on their Lord morning and
evening, seeking His face; and let not thine eyes pass beyond them, seeking the pomp and
glitter of this Life; nor obey any whose heart We have permitted to neglect the
remembrance of Us, one who follows his own desires, whose case has gone beyond all bounds

Life is a test that leads either to
Paradise or to Hell.

He reverted to Islam then died !


A man used to live in Saudi Arabia originally from India
was a Siekh, and a Muslim Shaik  ( Muhammad Farrag ) used to invite him a lot to
Islam. He neither refused nor accepted the idea because of his family.


Then one day Allah opened his heart to Islam, he came to
the shaik in his mosque to embrace Islam. The shaik was busy with his students and some Du’ah
(Muslim missioners who invite people to the worship of Allah).

Sheik Muhammad did not know that the man wanted to enter
in Islam so he did not give him any attention and he left the mosque with his students.

The man, who wanted to enter in Allah’s religion,
remained standing at the door of the mosque watching the shaik and his students riding
their cars and moving away. On that sight he could not prevent himself from crying and
burst into tears. While he was standing weeping at the door of the mosque, a young man who
lived in the same quarter passed by him.

He asked him about the reason of his crying and the Indian
replied that he wanted to be a Muslim.

The young man (May Allah rewards him the best) took him to
his house. He made him perform abulution (wudoo) and say the two testimonies (No god but
Allah and Muhammad is His Messenger). The Indian left after he said the testimony and it
was about the dusk prayer (Al-Maghrib). Then he went to his room and suffered from a
severe stomachache.

The young man came to shaik Muhammad and told him the
whole story. The shaik repented what he had done though he was ignorant of the matter. He
went to the Indian’s room, but his colleagues told him that he had died last night
and he was then in the fridge of the Central Hospital. The shaik went with some Du’ah
to the hospital to receive his corpse, but the hospital refused stating that the embassy
had sent to his family in India and they would receive his corpse to be burnt there. The
sheik objected saying that the man became a Muslim and there were witnesses on that, but
still the hospital refused.

Sheik Muhammad went to Shaik Abd Al-Aziz Bin Baz (May
Allah rest his soul and have mercy upon him) and told him the whole story. Shaik Abd
Al-Aziz said that the Indian should not be given to his family as he became their brother
in Islam; they should pray on his corpse and bury him there. He should not be given to the
unbelievers. Sheik Abd Al-Aziz sent a copy of the subject to the emirate and requested an
order to give the corpse to sheik Muhammad Farrag.

The emirate ordered the hospital to give the corpse to
Shaik Muhammad and he received it. Some Du’ah washed the man and put him in his
coffin. The funeral prayer coincided with Al-Goma’ah (the congregational prayer).
Shaik Muhammad gave a wonderful oration on the one who embraced Islam then died without
making one prostration to Allah. He stated in the first oration some similar examples from
history, then he stated in the second one the story of the Indian man upon whom they would
pray after Al-Goma’ah. The Muslims pray upon him, then they carried him upon their
shoulders and they all went to the graveyard led by a lot of Du’ah and scholars.

It was a moving scene, May Allah accept (his deeds) and have mercy upon him.

Written by meteor at clouds site.

On the Authority of ‘Abdullah bin Mus’ud (May
Allah be pleased with him) who said that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him), the
true and truly inspired said, “(The matter of Creation of) a
human being is put together in the womb of the mother for forty days, and then he becomes
a clot of thick blood for a similar period, and then a piece of flesh for similar period.
Then Allah sends an angel who is ordered to write four things. He is ordered to write his
(i.e. the new creature’s) deeds, his livelihood, his (date of) death, and whether he
will be blessed or wretched (in religion). Then the soul is breathed into him. By Allah
who is no God but Him, a man amongst you may do (good) deeds till there is only a cubit
between him and paradise and then what has been written for him decides his behavior and
he starts doing (evil) deeds characteristic of the people of the (Hell) Fire so he enters
it. And similarly a man amongst you may do (evil) deeds till there is only a cubit between
him and the (Hell) Fire, and then what has been written for him decides his behavior, and
he starts doing deeds characteristic of the people of Paradise so he enters it.

Please Take me!

"I was driving to the grocery store just thinking of everything on my list to do today. Taking the kids to soccer practice, cleaning the house, getting groceries, getting the oil changed in the car, the list went on and on. i was feeling overwhelmed and was already tired before I had even gotten started.

On my way to the store I saw something horrible happen!! A train had run into a car that was crossing the tracks. I thought "Oh no!, This is horrible, there is no way the driver of that car could have lived!!"

I was the closest car to the tracks so I put my car in park and got out. I ran over to the car and looked in and could not believe what I was seeing. Tears came to my eyes and I just couldn't take it. Inside the car was a woman driving that was obviously dead.
In the backseat was a baby in it's car seat bleeding everywhere and next to the baby was a little girl who I guessed to be about 4 years old and she was bleeding also. Just then the little girl spoke.

She said, "Is my mommy and baby sister okay?"
I just looked at her and said "Honey I don't know. There is a doctor on his way right now."

Just then the little girl started crying saying, "Don't take my mommy and my baby sister - Take me with you too!! Please!!"
She was pleading at who knows what to take her - but take her where?? I asked the little girl who she was talking to and she said, "don't you see ?"
That Angel is taking my mommy and my baby sister! I want to go with them too! My mommy is waving goodbye to me and she is holding my baby sister and she is smiling!"
The little girl started to cry because she did not want to stay, she wanted to go with her mommy and her baby sister.

I felt so sorry for her. I didn't believe in God and I thought to myself, "Where did an Angel come from? What kind of God would take a mommy and a baby but not the little sister?"

At that moment I saw the little girl start to smile so big as she held her arms out to something, someone to pick her up. I thought to myself that she must be delirious and maybe she is hurt worse that I thought. Just then the little girl closed her eyes and slumped over in her seat. She was dead!

I couldn't be sad even though this was a 4 year old little girl that had just died. You wouldn't be sad either if you could see that beautiful smile on her face! I guess her mommy and baby sister came back to get her.
That was also the day that God came to get me - as that was the day that I became a believer and turned my life over to the only One God."

He is involved in Da’wah but feels that he is a hypocrite and weak in faith


I have a VERY important and urgent question. I would really like a DETAILED answer as your answer could change my life !!!
Mail me if you want more information.

Please be patient with the length of my question as I believe the more I inform you the better you can answer the question.

I live in the West and I was born in a Muslim family. From my early teenage years I became active in Islam. Even from a young age I believed in Islam and I even wondered how people went to sleep without praying !!

I'm now much older and I have changed completely. My belief in Islam and even in Allah has disappeared. Basically I have become an outright hypocrite of the worst kind. I stay away from women but not pornography. I am prepared and trying to give that up and that maybe the cause of my fall but I've noticed that it's too late, as this is now a branch of the problem and not the root as the root of the problem is my belief in Allah and Islam.

Sometimes I believe I am crazy as I continuosly have erroneous thoughts about God, where I came from, Islam, right and wrong, etc.. I seem to be fighting between belief and disbelief, especially during prayer.

I have not abandoned prayer, etc, but it really does not benefit me any more. If you meet me you'll think I'm practicing from my appearance and speech, etc, I go to the mosque, I fast, but really I'm a true hypocrite whom no one knows. I cannot go on like this.

I actually actively give Dawah aswell to non-muslims but in my heart I really disbelieve, so why am I doing this ??? But when I directly discuss Allah it hurts me due to my confusion as I have lost my belief and find it hard to fake belief at times !!!

Praise be to Allaah.

You should know, my brother, that the most essential thing for any
person is his commitment to Islam and his faith, and he will not be harmed by whatever he
misses out on of worldly things if Allaah keeps his religion safe. Allaah is the King of
kings and is the One Who moves the heart; He Alone is the One Who strengthens the heart
and makes it steadfast. For this reason I advise you, my brother, to turn to Allaah, for
He is a loving and merciful Lord Who is Compassionate towards His slaves. If you turn to
Him sincerely and pray with true longing and ask Him to strengthen your faith and protect
you from the evil of the whispers of your own soul and of the Shaytaan, then Allaah is
Close and responds to the prayers of those who call on Him. Do not forget this important
fact, for it is a source of relief and a way out from your problem, in sha Allaah. I would
also like to remind you of the virtues of reading Qur’aan and reciting a lot of
du’aa’s, morning and evening, for this will have a great effect in bringing
peace and comfort to your heart.

Avoid the things that will make you feel far away from Allaah and bring
you closer to the Shaytaan and his whispers. One of these things is what you mention in
your question, namely looking at pornography and so on, because if a person persists in
sin, it piles up in his heart until it is overwhelmed with darkness and is not affected by
any exhortation or preaching. So hasten to repent from this sin and others, and fulfil the
conditions of repentance properly. We also advise you to avoid sitting with bad company
and in gatherings that could increase your confusion or provoke your desires; look for
good people and keep company with them, because a man will be on the religion of his

It seems from your question that you are suffering from a specific
psychological problem, either financial or social or otherwise, and this is having an
effect on this waswaas (insinuating thoughts from Shaytaan) that you are suffering. If
this is indeed the case, we advise you to treat this problem quickly, because this may be
a way of dealing with what you are suffering from. We will help you as much as we can, in
sha Allaah.

What you are going through might be a kind of depression or anxiety, for
one reason or another. You know that Allaah has not created a disease without also
creating the cure. It is known that there are medicines that may be of help, by the grace
of Allaah, in treating this kind of sickness. So ask about this kind of medication from a

The wife of a Daaiyah is complaining because her husband is so busy

but she is not happy with it, so kindly guide me that what i need to do here? slow down

Praise be to Allaah.

This ummah is the nation of moderation and balance, so
everyone who belongs to this ummah must be like that in all areas of his life.

At the same time as we are hearing of some Muslims who spend most of
their time away from their families – whether for da’wah or for travelling or
some other permissible purpose – we are also hearing of the opposite, where some
people stay with their families all the time and never devote any time to calling others
to Allaah.

Just as a man’s family has rights over him that he should not
neglect, other people, Muslims and non-Muslims – also have rights over him which he
should not ignore..

It was reported from al-Hasan that ‘Ubayd-Allaah ibn Ziyaad
visited Ma’qil ibn Yassaar during his final illness. Ma’qil said to him, I will
tell you a hadeeth which I heard from the Messenger of Allaah
(peace and blessings of
Allaah be upon him). I heard the Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say:

“There is no person to whom Allaah has given people to take care
of, and he fails to take care of them properly, but he will not smell the fragrance of
Paradise.” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 6731; Muslim, 142)

‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Umar said: the Prophet

(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“Each of you is a shepherd and each of you will be questioned
[about those under his care]. The leader is a shepherd and will be questioned. A man is
the shepherd of his family and will be questioned. A woman is the shepherd of her
husband’s house and she will be questioned. A slave is the shepherd of his
master’s wealth and will be questioned. Each of you is a shepherd and each of you
will be questioned [about those under his care].” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari,
4892; Muslim, 1829).

Many women wish that their husbands would not go out and
leave them, not even to pray (in the mosque)! So how about to call people to Allaah? A
woman said in the past: Three co-wives would be easier for me than my husband’s
library! Because her husband was fond of learning and reading.

So she should not be given everything she wants; the matter should be
referred to what Allaah loves and wants.

In the case of some acts of worship, the Prophet
(peace and blessings
of Allaah be upon him) told us not to go beyond what is prescribed in sharee’ah, for
fear that the rights of others – above all the family – may be affected because
of that. A number of ahaadeeth were narrated concerning this matter, such as:

‘Awn ibn Abi Juhayfah narrated that his father said: the Prophet

(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) established brotherhood (mu’aakhah)
between Salmaan and Abu’l-Dardaa’. Salmaan visited Abu’l-Dardaa’ and
noticed that Umm al-Dardaa’ appeared scruffy and unkempt (this was before the aayah
of hijaab was revealed). He said to her, What is the matter with you? She said, Your
brother Abu’l-Dardaa’ has no need of this world. Then Abu’l-Dardaa’
came (to visit him). He made some food for him, and said, Eat. [Abu’l-Dardaa’]
said, I am fasting. [Salmaan] said, I will not eat until you eat. So he ate. When night
came, Abu’l-Dardaa’ went to pray qiyaam, but [Salmaan] said to him, Sleep, so he
slept. Then he wanted to get up for qiyaam, but [Salmaan] said, Sleep. When the last part
of the night came, Salmaan said, Now get up. So they prayed, then Salmaan said to him,
Your Lord has a right over you, your soul has a right over you and your wife has a right
over you, so give each one his due. He [Abu’l-Dardaa’] went to the Prophet

(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and told him about that. The Prophet
and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, “Salmaan is right.” (Narrated
by al-Bukhaari, 1867).

‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Amr ibn al-‘Aas (may
Allaah be pleased with them both) said: the Messenger of Allaah
(peace and blessings of
Allaah be upon him) said to me, “O ‘Abd-Allaah, have I not heard that you fast
all day and pray all night?” I said, yes, O Messenger of Allaah. He said, “Do
not do that. Fast and break your fast, pray qiyaam and sleep, for your body has a right
over you, your eyes have a right over you, your wife has a right over you and your
visitors have a right over you. It is sufficient for you to fast three days of every
month. For every good deed (hasanah) you will be rewarded tenfold, so that will be like
fasting for an entire lifetime.” But I went to extremes and made things hard for
myself. I said, O Messenger of Allaah, I can do more than that. He said, “Then
observe the fast of the Prophet of Allaah, Dawood (peace be upon him), and no more.”
I said, What is the fast of the Prophet of Allaah, Dawood (peace be upon him)? He said,
“Half a lifetime.” After he grew old, ‘Abd-Allaah used to say, I wish that
I had taken the easier option which the Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon
him) offered me. (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 1874; Muslim, 1159).

In these ahaadeeth you can see how the Prophet
and blessings of Allaah be upon him) advised moderation in fasting, praying qiyaam and
reading Qur’aan – for those who were doing a lot and neglecting their
families’ rights. He was drawing attention to the rights of others, including wives
and families.

Whoever organizes his time and pays due attention to everyone who has a
right over him, should not worry about who is happy and who is not. Do not let da’wah
activities take over your life and occupy all your time, but do not listen to your wife
and give them up altogether.

One of the things that may help you is to get your wife involved in
da’wah activities. Ask her to listen to a tape and summarize it, or to read a book
and write down what she has learnt from it, or ask her to attend a study circle or take
part in women’s da’wah activities at the Islamic centre or attend women’s
seminars held in parallel with the men’s seminars, etc., so that she will feel that
she is sharing these activities with you, and she will not feel bored because her husband
is away.

Another issue to bear in mind is that you have to help her to
understand that she will have a share in the reward if she is patient with you and creates
the right atmosphere for you to learn and engage in da’wah. The Sahaabiyyaat (women
of the Sahaabah) used to take care of their husband’s houses and children when the
men went out for jihaad; they would serve their husband’s guests when they came to
visit. If a woman takes care of her husband’s house when he goes out to seek
knowledge or engage in da’wah or jihaad, and she serves the seekers of knowledge and
daa’iyahs who come to visit him by honouring them and preparing food for them, then
she will have a great reward for that. Allaah may admit three people to Paradise because
of a single arrow: the one who makes it with a good intention and the one who hands it
over – not just the one who shoots it. If a wife understands and remembers this, it
will make it much easier for her to bear it when her husband is absent or busy.

We will end with the story of a great woman, Asmaa’ bint Abi Bakr
As-Siddeeq, and see what she used to do when her husband was busy with jihaad and
da’wah and taking care of the affairs of the Islamic state with the Prophet
and blessings of Allaah be upon him):

Asmaa’ bint Abi Bakr (may Allaah be pleased with them both) said:
I got married to al-Zubayr and he owned nothing in this world apart from a camel for
carrying water and a horse. I used to feed his horse, and bring water, and prepare his
saddle, and make dough, but I was not good at baking; some women of the Ansaar who were my
neighbours used to bake my bread for me, and they were good women. I used to bring the
dates from some land which the Messenger of Allaah
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon
him) had given to al-Zubayr, carrying them on my head. (The land) was two-thirds of a
farsakh [parasang=approx. 3 miles] away. One day I was coming with the dates on my head,
and I met the Messenger of Allaah
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) with a
group of the Ansaar. He called me and made his camel kneel down so that I could ride
behind him. But I felt too shy to go with the men, and I remembered al-Zubayr and how
jealous he was, for he was the most jealous of men. The Messenger of Allaah
(peace and
blessings of Allaah be upon him) realized that I felt too shy, so he went on his way. I
came to al-Zubayr and told him that I had met the Messenger of Allaah
(peace and
blessings of Allaah be upon him) whilst I was carrying the dates on my head, and there was
a group of his companions with him. He made his camel kneel down so that I could ride on
it, but I felt too shy, because I remembered your jealousy. He said, By Allaah, your
having to carry the dates is harder for me than your riding with him. Later on, Abu Bakr
sent a servant who took care of the horse, and it was as if I had been set free from

(Narrated by al-Bukhaari,4823).

We ask Allaah to reform the affairs of the Muslims and
make things right between husbands and wives. May Allaah bless our Prophet Muhammad.

And Allaah knows best.

Ruling on describing those who are committed to the religion as fundamentalists and extremists


It has become common in some of the media to accuse the youth of the Islamic revival of being extremists and fundamentalists. What is your opinion of this?

Praise be to Allaah. 

Whatever the case, this is a mistake that has come from
the east and the west, from the Christians, communists and Jews, and
others who try to put people off the call to Allaah and its supporters,
and who want to be unfair to the da’wah by calling it extremism or fundamentalism
or whatever other names they give it.

 Undoubtedly calling people to Allaah is the religion
of the Messengers, it is their path and their way. The people of knowledge
are obliged to call others to Allaah and to be active in doing so. The
youth are obliged to fear Allaah and to adhere to the truth, not to
go to extremes or be harsh. It may so happen that some of the youth
are ignorant, so they go to extremes in some matters, or they are lacking
in knowledge, so they are negligent in some other matters. But all the
youth and others, such as the scholars, must fear Allaah and seek the
truth with evidence (daleel), i.e., what Allaah and His Messenger
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said; they must beware of
bid’ah (reprehensible innovations) and exaggeration. They must also
beware of ignorance and shortcomings. No one among them is infallible,
and some of the people may err by doing too much or by falling short.
But that does not mean that everyone is at fault; the fault rests with
those who make the mistake.

 But the enemies of Allaah among the Christians and
others who are following in their wake have made this a means of attacking
the da’wah and putting an end to it, by accusing its people of being
extremists and fundamentalists.

 What does “fundamentalism” mean?

 If they are fundamentalists in the sense that they
adhere to the fundamentals or basic principles (usool), to what Allaah
and His Messenger said, then this is praise,  not condemnation.
Adhering to the fundamentals, the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of His
Prophet (peace and blessings of
Allaah be upon him), is commendable and cannot be condemned. What is
to be condemned is when people overdo things or fall short, when they
go to extremes or are harsh or do not do what they have to do – this
is what is to be condemned. But the person who adheres to the right
principles, derived from the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of His Messenger
(peace and blessings of Allaah
be upon him), is not at fault; this is perfect and is to be praised.
This is what is obligatory upon seekers of knowledge and those who call
others to Allaah: they should adhere to the fundamentals from the Book
of Allaah and the Sunnah of His Messenger
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), and whatever they know
of the basic principles of fiqh, ‘aqeedah and hadeeth, whatever can
be used as evidence (daleel). They have to have basic principles which
they follow. Describing the daayi’ahs as fundamentalists is a general
word which does not mean anything apart from condemning them and putting
people off. Fundamentalism is not a bad thing, in fact it is something

 If the seeker of knowledge adheres to the fundamentals,
paying attention to them and staying up at night to study them from
the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of His Messenger
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), and what the scholars have
stated, there is nothing wrong with that. But going to extremes in following
bid’ah is what is wrong, and going to extremes of ignorance and falling
short is also wrong.

 The daa’iyahs are obliged to adhere to the fundamentals
of sharee’ah and adhere to the middle course to which Allaah has guided
them, for Allaah has made them an ummah justly balanced (cf. Al-Baqarah
2:143). So the daa’iyahs have to be justly balanced, treading a middle
course between exaggeration and negligence. They have to be steadfast
in adhering to the truth, and to adhere to it on the basis of shar’i
evidence (daleel). There should be neither exaggeration nor negligence,
but the moderation that Allaah has enjoined.
