CHAPTER 2: OBEDIENCE TO THE MESSENGER SALLALLAAHU `ALAIHI WA SALLAM (Part – 2)

introduction2-2

So Allah sent the messengers to the creation in order for the proof to be established upon them, and that they should worship Allah in a manner that He loves andis pleased with, as Allah, the Blessed and Most High, says:

“We sent Revelation to you, O Muhammad, just as We sent Revelation to Noah and the Prophets after him; and We sent Revelation to Ibraaheem, Ismaa’eel, Ishaaq, Ya’qoob, the sons of Ya’qoob, ‘Eesaa, Yoonus, Haaroon and Sulaymaan; and We gave the Zaboor to Daawood. And We sent Revelation to messengers about whom We have related to you previously, and to messengers about whom We have not related to you; and Allah spoke directly to Moosaa, messengers as bearers of good tidings and warners, so that the people should have no excuse before Allah after the sending of the messengers. And Allah is always the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.”

[Soorah an-Nisaa (4): 163-165]

Sheikh Rahimullah’s saying “Rather He sent a Messenger to us”: he is Muhammad sallallaahu `alaihi wa sallam, the seal, the last one of the Prophets. He sent him to make clear to us that why we were created and how we are to worship to Allah, the Most High, and forbid from sins and shirk (disbelief). This was his sallallaahu `alaihi wa sallam duty and he clearly conveyed the message and fulfilled the trust that was given to him. He clearly mentioned that one who will deviate from the actual path, will be destroyed.

introduction2-3

His saying “Whoever obeys him”  meaning in that which he sallallaahu `alaihi wa sallam commands, then person can enter paradise. And his saying “Whoever disobeys him”  meaning in that which he sallallaahu `alaihi wa sallam forbades, then person will enter the fire.

This is something for which there is a great deal of confirmation in the Quran. Allah, the Almighty has said:

من يطع الرسول فقد اطاع الله 

“He who obeys the Messenger has obeyed Allah” ( Surah An-Nisa: 80)

The Ayaat (verses) in this regard are many.

“And whoever obeys Allaah and His Messenger has achieved the greatest success.”

[Soorah al-Ahzaab (33):71]

This fact is also proven by the saying of the Messenger:

“All of my Ummah will enter Paradise except those who refuse” So it was said: “And who would refuse, O Messenger of Allah?” He said: “Whoever obeys me will enter Paradise and whoever disobeys me will enter the Fire.”    

[Reported by Al-Bukharee (Eng. transl. 9/284/no.384)]

And whoever rejects and disobeys him will enter the Fire, is proven by the saying of  Allah, the Most High

“And whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger and transgresses the limits which He has laid down, then Allah will enter him into the Fire in which he will remain forever and receive a humiliating punishment.” [Soorah an-Nisaa (4): 14] 

“And whoever disobeys Allaah and His Messenger has indeed strayed into clear error.”

[Soorah al-Ahzaab (33):36]

“And whoever disobeys and rejects Allah and His Messenger, then he will burn in the Fire of Hell, remaining in it for eternity.”  [Soorah al-Jinn (72):23]

“We sent a Messenger to you, O people, as a witness in favour of you or against you on the Day of Resurrection, just as We sent a Messenger to the Pharaoh. But the Pharaoh denied and rejected the Messenger, so We seized him with a severe punishment. ” [Soorah al-Muzzammil (73): 16]

So whoever obeys him will enter paradise, and whoever disobeys him will enter the Hell-fire, and this is the distinguishing factor between the true believer and disbeliever.

SCHEDULE FOR THE DAY OF ARAFAH

Suggested schedule for the Day of Arafah In sha Allah:

1. Sleep early the night before to strengthen yourself for the special day.

2. Wake up before Fajr for suhoor.

3. Make wudoo, while consciously remembering that your sins are being washed away til the last drop of water.

Pray at least 4 rakat of qiyam and make du’aa for your deen and dunya in your sujood. Cry to Allah, showing Him humility and ask Him to give you tawfeeq on this great day, and thank Him for making you of those who would experience this special occasion.

4. Spend some time (10-15 mins at least) making Istighfar before Fajr, to be like the righteous whom Allah described as “seeking forgiveness before dawn.”

5. Repeat after Fajr adhan and make du’aa. Pray Fajr. Sit in your prayer place and do your morning adhkar. Make tasbeeh, tahleel, tahmeed, and takbeer. And as the Prophet Muhammad (Sallal laahu alaihi wa sallam) advised, increase in “la ilaha illallah, wahdahu la shareeka lahu, lahul mulk wa lahul hamd, wa huwa ala kulli shay’in qadeer.”

6. 15 minutes after sunrise pray 2 rakat of shurooq. This all amounts to the reward of a complete Hajj and umrah. So do not waste it!

7. If you’re able to stay awake by all means, do so and do not waste a single minute. If you need to sleep, take a nap for an hour with the conscious intention of energizing yourself for the worship of Allah.

8. When you wake up, make wudoo and pray at least 4 rakat of duha. Then recite lots of Quran and make the dhikr mentioned above in breaks in between.
(Make dhikr after Dhuhr as you prepare food or as you do what is absolutely necessary)

9. After Asr, say the evening adhkar. Then recite Qur’an again til about an hour before Maghrib. At that point, make LOTS of du’aa til Maghrib, while having yaqeen that Allah will answer. (Preparing a du’aa list ahead of time helps!) Beg that the day will not come to an end except that Allah has forgiven you all your sins and written you of those He has freed from the Fire.

Don’t forget the Muslims suffering all over the world.

Remember as you break your fast that your du’aa at that moment is accepted.

May Allah grant us all tawfeeq on that day.

Takbirāt of Tashrīq

The Takbirāt of Tashrīq are:

Allāhu Akbar, Allāhu Akbar, Lā ilāha illallāhu wallāhu Akbar, Allāhu Akbar, Walil lāhil hamd

“Allāh is the Greatest, Allāh is the Greatest. There is no deity besides Allāh and Allāh is the Greatest. Allāh is the Greatest and all praises are for Allāh only.”

It is wājib for every adult Muslim to recite these Takbirāt of Tashrīq audibly once after every fard salāh from the Fajr of 9th Dhul-Hijjah (Wednesday 23rd Sep 2015) to the ‘Asr of 13th Dhul-Hijjah (Sunday 27th September 2015) total of 23 salāh.

Mas’alah: Women should not say it loudly but softly.

Mas’alah: Takbīr should be recited immediately after concluding the fard prayer.

SUPPLICATION OF PROPHET MUSA A.S

Prophet’s Musa du’a taught by Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala when he was assigned the task to do da’wah to Pharaoh.

Understanding the Qur’an requires that our hearts be cleansed first. Consciously, clean your heart from its spiritual diseases. Qur’an cannot settle in a heart that is filled with the filth of envy, hatred, jealousy and rancor.

In this du’a we ask Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala to open up our hearts (so that we can understand His words). We ask Him to make the task easy for us (meaning understanding of the Qur’an becomes easy for me). You can also make this du’a for other difficulties in life.

After learning the Qur’an, we must communicate it to others. Many of us might be fabulous orators in the worldly studies, but when it comes to da’wah we are tongue-tied. Therefore, we ask Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala to untie the knots of our tongue so that we can communicate His words to other people. Qur’an is a kalaam [speech], it cannot be transferred through written text only. It has to be spoken and heard. Jibreel ‘alayhi salaam would recite the words of the Qur’an and reveal them to Prophet Muhammad salAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. The Prophet then memorized the words and recited them to the Companions who then memorized them and communicated them to others through speech. While reciting the Qur’an privately, we should not recite it in our heart without any sound but the sound of Qur’an recitation should enter our ears too. This is how the words will have an effect on our hearts.

DHUL HIJJAH – VIRTUES OF FIRST 10 DAYS

Alhamdulillah, we are now approaching the month of Dhul-Hijjah, the month of Hajj. This is the month upon which Allah has bestowed the days of `Arafah, `Eid Al-Adha, and the Days of Tashreeq, which are the three days following `Eid. This is a special month, a month in which we are encouraged to double our efforts in performing our acts of worship and our good deeds.

If we have missed the opportunity to increase our worship during the last Ramadan, or if we have missed the opportunity to fast the six days of Shawwal, then let it be known, that right now there is a golden opportunity in front of us, an opportunity to be closer to Allah and to increase our worship.

This golden opportunity is the first 10 days of Dhul-Hijjah. Let us grab this opportunity before it leaves us. Let us do more dhikr, more Prayer, and more fasting. Let us recite Al-Qur’an more. Allah says in Surat Al-Fajr: “And by the ten nights”

The Prophet (sal Allaahu Alayhi wa Sallam) testified to that. He said:

“There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allaah than these ten days.” The people asked, “Not even jihaad for the sake of Allaah?” He said, “Not even jihaad for the sake of Allaah, except in the case of a man who went out to fight giving himself and his wealth up for the cause, and came back with nothing.” (Bukhaari)  

Subhaan Allaah wal-Hamdulillaah! What a blessing!

Obviously, Hajj is one of the best deeds that one can do during these ten days. However for those of us who were not invited to His House this year, there are still many, many good deeds that one can do and earn the Pleasure of Allaah. Some of these are:

  1. Fast all nine days and especially fast the Day of ‘Arafah
  2. Do a LOT of Dhikr and Takbeer
  3. Stand in Night Prayers
  4. Make Sincere Repentance
  5. Recite more Qur’aan
  6. Generally increase in doing ALL good deeds
  7. Get the reward of Hajj wherever you are
  8. Slaughter an animal and distribute the meat
  9. Attend Eid prayers
  10. Thank Allaah SWT

We Ask Allah (SWT) to accept our Ibadah, noble deed, charities, prayers in the month of Dhul Hajj. May Allah SWT make these days of yours, and every day of your life filled with joy, love and happiness. Ameen

PART 2- INTRODUCTION TO NEXT THREE OBLIGATORY MATTERS TO LEARN

 

CHAPTER 2: BELIEF THAT ALLAH HAS CREATED US, PROVIDED SUSTENANCE & DIDN’T LEAVE US NEGLECTED (PART 1)

Chp2

Allah has created us:

In the first matter, that “Allah has created us” : meaning, He produced us from non-existence, so before we were created we were nothing, just as He, the Most High said:

chap2-1 In Surah Maryam and Surah At-Toor it is more explained as:

ch2-2

Allah has provided us Sustenance:

He has given us provision“, provisions includes food, drink, children, clothing, habitations, transport, and all other requirements to live in this world.  He knew our needs, so therefore He made subservient for us, whatever is in the heavens and the earth all of it for our welfare, in order for us to remain alive and in order that we fulfill our purpose of creation i.e. the worship of Allah subhana watala.

Allah did not leave us without Purpose:

 Al-Haml means, something which is neglected and abandoned, which no one cares about. So Allah has created us and gave us provision for wise purpose, He didn’t create us in vain and nor without any purpose.

chp2-3

The faculties given us are for great purpose, that we should worship Him, He didn’t created us like cattle, that they live, eat, give birth to its off-springs and pass away, because they are not duty-bound, they were not commanded and they were not forbidden. Allah subhana watallah said in Quran,

Screen Shot 2015-09-12 at 3.10.38 PM

And He did not create us for the life of this world, that we live in it, roam around freely and make merry and eat, drink and make ourselves at home in it, and that there is nothing after it. Rather life is a planting-ground and a market place for the next life so that we should equip ourselves in it with righteous deeds. Then, we will be resurrected, we will be taken account of it, and finally we will be recompensed in accordance with our deeds.

This is the purpose behind the creation of the jinn and mankind. And the proof for that is many ayahs which prove Al-Ba’ath (the raising to life after death), an-Nushoor (the resurrection) , al-Jazaa (the recompensing) and al-Hisaab ( the reckoning).

Conclusion:

So, this world is the an abode of action but as for the hereafter then it is an abode of recompense, either paradise or the fire and he did not leave us without purpose, as is thought by the atheists and those who think that death is the end of us.

This is not possible and this will never be the case.
