Don’t miss out on the 15th of Sha’ban

How much do you know about the 15th night of Sha’ban❓-

The second most auspicious night of the Islamic calendar…

The illustrious Maliki ‘Alim; Ibnul Haj (rahimahullah) states:

“The salaf (pious predecessors) would sanctify this night and prepare themselves for it in advance.”
(Al-Madkhal, 1/299)

Du’a when Ramadan arrives

Sayyiduna ‘Ubadah ibn Samit (radiyallahu’anhu) reports that Rasulullah ﷺ use to teach the Sahabah (radiyallahu’anhum) the following Du’a when the Blessed month of Ramadan would arrive:

اَللّٰهُمَّ سَلّمْنِيْ لِرَمَضانَ وَسَلّمْ رَمَضانَ لِيْ وَسَلّمْه لِي مُتَقَبَّلا

(رواه الطبراني في الدعاء والديلمي ، وسنده حسن- كنز العمال 8/584)

Allahumma sallimni li Ramadana, wa sallim Ramadana li, wa sallimhu li mutaqabbala

Translation: O Allah! preserve me for Ramadan, safeguard Ramadan for me and accept it from me.

Explanation

“Preserve me for Ramadan” means: O Allah! allow me to remain healthy and able so I may benefit from Ramadan. It shouldn’t be that when Ramadan arrives, I am caught up in some unfortunate condition that hinders our Fast, ‘ibadah etc.

“Safeguard Ramadan for me” means: In addition to being able, O Allah! grant me the tawfeeq (ability) to maximise my benefit from this auspicious occasion. Many able people witness this month but fail to actually benefit from it. These people are truly unfortunate! May Allah save us.

“and accept it from me” means: O Allah! after inspiring me to be devoted throughout the month, don’t let it go to waste by not accepting it.

The Habit of the Salaf (predecessors)

1⃣ The famous Tabi’i: Imam Makhool (rahimahullah) would recite this du’a at the beginning of Ramadan.

2⃣ ‘Abdul ‘Azeez ibn Abi Rawwad (Demise: 159 A.H.) said that “the muslims would recite” a similar du’a (with additions to the above wording) upon the arrival of Ramadan.

3⃣ Imam Muhammad ibn Nasar Al-Marwazi has stated that it was the habit of the Sahabah (radiyallahu’anhum) and the Tabi’un (rahimahumullah) to recite this du’a when Ramadan arrived.

4⃣ The reliable Tabi’i; Yahya Ibn Abi Katheer (rahimahullah) said:
“It was their habit (the Sahabah and Tabi’un) to make this du’a…”
——
May Allah ﷻ‎ bless us with all of the above this Ramadan.

How do you react to Ramadan

Nobody can skip Ramadan, we are all given this opportunity equally.
How we react to this auspicious month is actually our own choice.

With 10 days already passed, it’s an ideal time to reflect on the following.

In essence, there are three reactions to this blessed season:

1⃣ There are some who are already spiritually charged and await this month in earnest. They use this as an opportunity to progress further in spirituality during Ramadan. These individuals maximise their benefit from this month. They are the fortunate ones!
May we be from this group

2⃣ There are others who are aware of the auspiciousness of the month and prepare themselves to honour its sanctity as much as possible. They shun the sins that they usually engage in during the other eleven months of the year and even try to increase their ‘ibadat in Ramadan. However, once the month departs, they revert to those wrongs! It’s as if they braced themselves for this month only. They then release the ‘hand-break’ once the crescent of Shawwal is sighted. This is the middle group and unfortunately the majority.

3⃣ There many to whom Ramadan makes no difference! They show no regard to it whatsoever and persist in the wrongs that they are so accustomed to. These are the deprived ones! They are the real losers!
May Allah ﷻ‎ save us

Which team we belong to is really up to us!

May Allah ﷻ‎ protect us all and inspire us to accept this auspicious month with open arms, and to maximize our benefit therefrom. Amin.

The religion of entertainment

The trend around the globe is that people are constantly looking for innovative ways of entertaining themselves.
This ‘hunger for entertainment’ has a gradual effect of retrogression on one’s spirituality.

Un-Detected
In the recent past, the tendency of making jokes that entail the symbols of Islam have alarmingly increased.

Even more astonishing is the fact that many of us Muslims don’t even realize the proportion of its ill-effect.

The Significance of a Symbol

Allah ﷻ‎ says:

ومن يعظم شعائر الله فإنها من تقوى القلوب
‘And whoever honours the symbols of Allah, does so out of the taqwa [that exits] in the heart.’
(Surah Haj, verse: 32)

A symbol is something that exclusively represents whatever it symbolizes.

Making fun of the symbols of Islam is a mockery of Islam itself!
The Fuqaha have ruled that when one mocks at a symbol of Islam, he could be removed from the fold!
(Durrul Mukhtar, with Raddul Muhtar, vol.5 pg.474)

Jokes that portray people reciting the Quran or offering salah in a comical manner, or a man making du’a using words and phrases that are meant to create a laugh indeed fall very close to ‘One who mocks a symbol of Islam.’
Jokes about ‘God’ are also included in the above.
How can a Muslim make fun at his very own religion? How did we reach such a level? It surely didn’t happen in the blink of an eye. These are the ill-effects of our hunger for entertainment.

Who is then to blame for defamatory cartoons and other such mockups of our religion⁉

Allah ﷻ‎ has clearly stated:

وما هو بالهزل
‘And it (the Quran and its teachings, ie, Islam) is not a joke’
(Surah Tariq, verse: 14)

What to do
⚠When one receives such a clip or joke, immediately delete it. Don’t share it with anyone, as this leads to it spreading. Sometimes, ignoring futility is the best way to eradicate it.
By sharing such jokes, we become guilty of this mockery ourselves!

⛔ Lastly, one should –if possible- tactfully advise the sender against sharing/creating such content.

May Allah ﷻ‎ save us from ‘the religion of entertainment’, as that is not the religion brought by Muhammad ﷺ !!

Amazing benefits of 10 verses of Surah Baqarah

In an era like ours, in which we’ve become immune to insecurity & unpleasant surprises, the following prescription from one of the most knowledgeable Sahabah (radiyallahu’anhum) is very pertinent.

Lets read through the following narrations and be inspired.

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud (radiyallahu’anhu) said:

‘Whoever recites the following ten verses of Surah Baqarah in the morning,
1⃣ will be saved from Shaytan till the evening, and whoever recites it in the evening will be protected from Shaytan till the morning.

2⃣ He will not experience unpleasant surprises in his family or wealth.

3⃣ If these verses are recited on an insane person, he will be cured.

One narration adds:

4⃣ ‘If they are recited in a home, no Shaytan shall enter it till the morning.’

(Sunan Darimi, Shu’abul Iman & Al-Mu’jamul Kabir. ‘Allamah Suyuti has declared one chain of Darimi as authentic (sahih) refer: Da’il Falah, Hadith: 84)

Those ten verses are:

The first four verses.
(according to some ‘Ulama this ends at the word: ‘Muflihun‘
(Al-Hirzuth Thamin, vol.1 pg.521)

Ayatul Kursi & the two verses that follow it.

The last three verses.

Let’s make it our habit of reciting these verses every morning & evening.

Become the Beloved of Allah

From the entire three hundred and sixty days of the Islamic calendar, there is no other set of ten days that is more virtuous, then the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah.
(lataiful Ma’arif)

The Ten most Blessed days of the year have arrived!
Nabi ﷺ actually labelled them as: ‘The best days in the world.’
(Musnad Bazzar)

All Deeds are most beloved to Allah on these days
During this time of the year, any good deed one does, is most loved by Allah ﷻ‎ ; be that even a deed as easy as a subhanallah.

There is no better time in the whole year for one to do good than these blessed days [and nights], other than on Laylatul Qadr.

✅Rasulullah ﷺ said:
‘There are no other days in which Allah loves good deeds more than on these [10] days.’
(Sahih Bukhari)

✅One version adds: ‘…so frequently recite therein: Subhanallah, Alhamdulillah, la ilaha illallah and Allahu Akbar.
(Al-Mu’jamul Kabir)

✅Sayyiduna Anas (radiyallahu’anhu) says;
‘It was understood about these days, that each day is equal to a thousand days [in virtue]’
(Shu’abul Iman)

Become the beloved of Allah!
These days ahead of us actually offer us the grand opportunity of becoming beloved to Allah ﷻ.

In the above narrations we learn the following:
These days are most beloved to Allah.
Good deeds on these days are also most beloved to Allah.
Frequently recite the dhikrs: Subhanallah, Alhamdulillah, la ilaha illallah & Allahu Akbar.
In an authentic (sahih) narration, Nabi ﷺ has labelled these four dhikrs as: the most beloved of statements to Allah.
(Sahih Muslim)

All of this culminate with the tenth day; the day of ‘Eidul Adha. The day of slaughter. On this day, the most beloved deed is to slaughter an animal for Allah’s sake.
(Sunan Tirmidhi)

One who implements the above, can go along way in achieving the love of Allah ﷻ‎.

We have done enough of those deeds that Allah Ta’ala despises and hates. This is our chance to rectify that…

Do what is beloved to Allah, on the days that are most beloved to Allah, and we ourselves can become beloved to Allah ﷻ‎.

Rectified Motives & Reformed Children

The Honourable Hadith expert of our times, Al-Muhaddith, Shaykh Muhammad ‘Awwamah (may Allah protect him) often states that the residents of Madinah Munawwarah would regularly make the following du’a:

اللّٰهُمَّ أَصْلِحِ النِّيَّةَ والذُّرِّيَّةَ
Allahumma aslihin niyyah wadh dhurriyyah

Translation
O Allah, rectify my intentions & reform My progeny.

This brief yet profound du’a is much needed in the world today.
‼ Ponder: One who is berift of the above 2 bounties will suffer in both Worlds❗

The Selfie Age
Unfortunately we live in an era where almost ‘nothing is done without an ulterior motive.’
It’s an era wherein everything is ’selfied’; be it with a pic or even in text.

‼ Without the correct motive, no deed is accepted by Allah ﷻ‎

❌ Even if that deed be as noble as it gets; we should still be focused on our intentions, instead of broadcasting our achievements❗

A Rare Breed
The need for ‘reformed’ offspring is understood by one and all. Especially in an age where such a blessing is of a rare kind.
Fortunate are those who have already achieved this.
While many of us still only yearn for that blessing…

Let’s include this du’a in our daily supplications, in addition to the physical effort that is needed to achieve the above.
Insha Allah we will see great results.

May Allah ﷻ‎ accept all our efforts and du’as.

اللّٰهُمَّ أَصْلِحِ النِّيَّةَ والذُّرِّيَّةَ
Allahumma aslihin niyyah wadh dhurriyyah

Simple Recitals during bad wheather

In conditions like the above, in addition to sincere repentance & additional salah, we should frequently recite the du’as taught to us in the Noble Hadith of Nabi ﷺ.

From the many sunnah du’as for such conditions, the following is a list of the more easy ones:

When it’s windy:

اللّٰهُمَّ اجْعَلْها رِياحًا ولا تَجْعَلْها رِيْحًا
Allahummaj ‘alha riyahan wa la taj’alha reehan

Translation
O Allah, let it be a wind of mercy, not one of punishment.
(Tabarani & others)

While it’s raining

اللّٰهُمَّ صَيِّبًا نافِعا
Allahumma sayyiban nafi’a

Translation
O Allah, let it be a beneficial downpour.
(Sahih Bukhari)

When it rains heavily:

اللّٰهُمَّ حَوالَيْنا وَلا عَلَيْنا
Allahumma hawalayna wa la ‘alayna.

Translation
O Allah, let it rain around us, not upon us.
(Sahih Bukhari)

⚡ During a storm/thunder and lightning:⛈

اللّٰهُمَّ لا تَقْتُلْنا بِغَضَبِكَ ولا تُهْلِكْنا بِعَذابِكَ وَعافِنا قَبْلَ ذلِك
Allahumma la taqtulna bi ghadabika wa la tuhlikna bi ‘adhabika wa ‘afina qabla dhalik

Translation
O Allah, Do not kill us through your anger, do not destroy us with your punishment & save us before that occurs.
(Tirmidhi & Nasai)

A suggested du’a [by ‘Ulama] for when driving in the rain:

إنَّ اللّهَ يُمْسِكُ السَّماواتِ وَالأَرْضَ أَنْ تَزُولا
Innalllaha yumsikus samawati wal arda an tazula

Translation
Undoubtedly it is Allah who keeps the heavens & earth from shaking.
(Al-Ibtihaj of ‘Allamah Sakhawi)

Among the best of recitals for such conditions is the recital of Surah Falaq & Surah Nas frequently.

Sayyiduna ‘Uqbah ibn ‘Amir (radiyallahu ‘anhu)says:
“While I was travelling with Rasulullah ﷺ a strong wind & intense darkness enveloped us. Nabi ﷺ began reciting Surah Falaq and Surah Nas. He then said, ‘Uqbah, seek refuge through these two Surahs for none can seek refuge [with anything better] than these two Surahs…”
(Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 1458)

May Allah Ta’ala protect everyone.

Respect our marhum, fallen brethren ❌❌

Undoubtedly, Allah ﷻ has favoured the Ummah of Nabi Muhammad ﷺ in countless ways.

⏱ Intervalled Tests
From time to time Allah ﷻ -by his wisdom- also tests the Ummah.
Nabi ﷺ informed the Ummah that they will be tested by Allah ﷻ in the form of natural catastrophies and other physical hardships.

Currently many Muslims throughout the world are subject to unimaginable torture and brutality.
Insha Allah, this is a passing phase, which will be replaced with better times ahead for the Muslims globally.

Feel the Pain
As Muslims, and members of one global family, we are definitely required to feel their pain and to make an earnest effort to assist them in every way possible.
But that ‘effort’ does not include circulating gruesome pictures of our brothers and sisters! ❌❌

Human dignity
Allah ﷻ has endowed humanity with dignity. (Surah Isra)
As Humans, we are taught to cover the deceased wherever they may be. And not to leave human corpses to lay around like that of animals!

ثم أماته فأقبره
Then He (Allah) gave man death and had him buried.
(Surah ‘Abasa)

Broadcasting pics of our fellow Muslim brothers and sisters choking on their blood or laying martyred on the ground or even as decapitated is totally wrong!
In trying to -rightfully- create awareness of their plight we have -unknowingly- failed their right to privacy.
It is indeed sad, how we have violated their dignity, albeit unintentionally.
The same applies to when fellow friends are involved in car-accidents and any other tragedy.

Lets do it the right way
Please do continue to raise awareness and to assist the part of our family that is greatly in need.
✅ Do it in the correct manner. Don’t be tricked into thinking that they would want their fallen bodies broadcast throughout the world.
Would we want that for our own selves or our blood brothers, sisters, parents and children⁉
Therefore, let’s keep the posters, flyers & clips free of such pictures.
It shouldn’t be that due to the current bombardment of brutal pictures and clips, we become immune to such scenes, and then do nothing about it besides passing it around…

May Allah ﷻ guide us and may He‎ alleviate the suffering of the Ummah, soon. Very soon.

بحوله وقدرته. وما ذلك علىالله بعزيز

There is no bad luck in the month of Safar

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu’anhu) reports that Rasulullah ﷺ said:
‘There is no such thing as [the month of] Safar [being bad].’
(Sahih Bukhari)

In light of this & other Hadiths, to regard the month of Safar as an unlucky month or as a month in which calamities occur is unislamic.
This is actually a false notion from the pre-Islamic era.

Hafiz Ibn Rajab Al-Hambali (rahimahullah) said:
‘The people of Jahiliyyah (the pre-Islamic age) would regard Safar as a source of bad luck. Nabi ﷺ has abolished this belief.
There are many ignorant people who continue to regard Safar as a bad month…’
(Lataiful Ma’arif, pg.148)

This ruling is echoed by many other Scholars.
(refer: Mirqat, Hadith: 4577 & Ma Thabata bis Sunnah of Shah ‘Abdul Haq, pg.267)

Another Fabrication:
There is a narration that states: ‘Whoever gives me the good news of Safar departing, I will give him the good news of Jannah.’

This is not a Hadith of Rasulullah ﷺ. ‼
The Hadith Experts have ruled it a fabrication.
(Kashful Khafa, Hadith: 2416)

One should avoid spreading such misinformation.
