  1. As-Salaam alaikum, You are aware that in many places of the Holy Qur'an, Allah, Jallah-Jalalahu, praised and showed His Pleasure for the Sahaba (companions) of the Noble Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam. Such areas in the Qur'an include Ayats 100 of Surat Tauba (9:100) and Ayat 110 of Surat Ali-Imran (3:110). The behavior and actions of the Sahaba were always in accordance with the Shari'a and exemplary. We should emulate them in our actions today and always. In that regards, I wish to invite your attention to the attached file containing a compilation of 51 stories of life and times of the Sahaba, taken from: 'Companions of The Prophet', by Abdul Wahid Hamid, for your perusal and use.... and for the obvious lessons to be drawn therefrom.

  2. As-Salaam alaikum, It was once said to Abu Bakr Siddiq, the first Caliph, may Allah be pleased with him, (during an illness), "Shall we call a physician for you"? to which he replied: "He has already seen me". It was then said to him, "What did He say to you?" He replied: "...Verily, I do as I please". And Uthman, may Allah be pleased with him, asked Abdullahi Ibn Mas'ud in his sickness, "What is your complaint?" He replied: "The Mercy of Allah". It was then said to him, "Shall we not call a physician for you?" to which he replied: "the physician is the one who made me sick." All this is explained in the Light of Ayat 119 of Surat Ma'eda of the Holy Qur'an: "Allah is pleasured with them and they are pleased with Him". (5:119) Thus when we are contented, satisfied with Allah Tabaraka Wa Ta'ala, we relinquish all choices and should anticipate Decrees of Allah Almighty with joy... especially noting that He is the Arranger of all affairs (mudabbir amr). One must never respond to Allah's bitter Decrees with either stoic indifference or dejectedness and despair. We must realize that the choice of Allah Ta'ala is better than our choice for ourselves, since there are consequences for events which we do not anticipate in our short-sightedness.
  3. As-Salaam alaikum, The second verse/Ayat of Surat Ikhlas of the Holy Qur'an (112:2) reads:-- "ALLAHU SAMAD". Now, if Allah, Azzah Wa Jallah, is Samad, then we are the Samadiyya of Allah. The Samadiyya of Allah comes in 2 aspects, namely:-- (1) His Absolute Independence from all things. (2) The Absolute Dependence of all things on Him. Therefore when you lift up that glass/cup to drink water, it is only by and through the Mercy of Allah [as Rahman and Raheem] that your thirst can be quenched. This is the reality of things and the wisdom of our reciting the 'Basmala [Bismillahi Rahman, Raheem], when eating, drinking, driving etc The way we understand and believe affects the way we behave and act. Does the fire have the power to burn or not? When Prophet Ibrahim, alaihis-Salaat Was-Salaam, was placed into the fire by his enemies, what happened? It became Bardan Wa Salaman, a place of security and tranquility.... because Alllah Ta'ala Creates, Controls and gives effect every single second, to every single Creation, at any time He Wishes. When we, as servants of the Creator, say 'Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem', we affirm the reality of things... ie that it is ONLY by and through the Mercy of Allah, do things occur, including quenching your thirst with a cup of cold water. And by our affirming this with faith in our reciting the Basmala, Allah then sends His Baraka (Blessings) upon the acts we do. Note this well...
  4. As-Salaam alaikum, In the Hadith, we find it where the Prophet Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam said: "Worship Allah as though you see Him..." and "Allah is the Qibla of the person who is praying"-- ie imagine Him in your direction of prayer and be attentive to Him, so that you are fully mindful of Him and humble before Him. And always observe the appropriate courtesy with Him while you are praying, as if you do not do this, you are being discourteous and inconsiderate. Had the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, not known that there is within you a reality called IMAGINATION that has an immense sway, he would not have said to us "worship Allah as though you see Him" with your physical vision. For indication of the intellect rule out this "as though" and the intellect holds, with its arguments, that any likeness (between Allah and created things) is impossible: vision can perceive nothing but the wall in front of the person praying!! Yet, the Prophet alaihis-Salaat Was-Salaam, called upon us to imagine that we are facing Allah (al-Haqq) in our direction of prayer; indeed it has been prescribed that we accept that, where Allah says: "So wherever you may turn, then there is the Face of Allah" (2:115)... the "face" (wajh) of something is its reality and individual essence. Indeed, imagination in this context is all-encompassing.
  5. As-Salaam alaikum, It is my pleasure to share with you the attached Du'a for Khayrat... Du'a for all kinds of good fortune(s) for your perusal and use. It came to us from Sheikh Salih Ja'afar, may Allah be Merciful to him. Also attached is Du'a of Salaat Kanzil A'azam.....

  6. As-Salaam alaykum, It is my pleasure to share with you a copy of the attached file, being 'Al-Wazifah az-Zarruqiyya, by Sheikh Ahmad Zarruq, may Allah be Merciful to him. It is Du'a or Wazifah that the Noble Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, admired.... infact, he named it 'THE SHIP OF RESCUE FOR THOSE WHO TAKE SHELTER IN ALLAH'. Find time to examine this Wazifah and use it... given its vast usefulness and merit(s). May we be opportuned to make this Wazifah ppart of our daily Zikr, when we come to remember Allah Ta'ala in the mornings and evenings.... ameen. Best Regards. Wazifa Zarruqiya Digital Edition 1.pdf
  7. As-Salaam alaikum, You must have read it in the Hadith where the Noble Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:-- "My eyes sleep, but my heart never sleeps." His heart never sleeps! His heart is always connected to his Lord.... he is always in ascension. None can know the level attained in Ascension. Even Jibreel, alaihis-Salaam, was not able to know it, because he said [on the night of the 'Isra wal Mi'eraj] " I cannot move beyond my level", when the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, asked him to continue with him. "If I go further, I will be burnt", Jibreel said. Sufi Masters say that Jibreel, alaihis-Salaam, should have moved forward with the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, even if he was going to be burnt. As the Prophet said to Jibreel, "I am going to move higher even if I am going to be burnt." He was ready to sacrifice himself to obtain that Light for his Community (Ummah), saying: ' have no concern for myself'....therefore he moved forward, constantly progressing, traveling to that level, closer and closer to his Lord...Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam.
  8. As-Salaam alaikum, Everyday we should ask ourselves whether we have done any deeds solely to please Allah, Azzah Wa Jallah, and to earn rewards from Him. When we think like this consciously daily, not only will we earn those rewards, we will also start changing ourselves for the better. In that regards, find hereby attached a leaflet titled: '70 WAYS TO EARN REWARDS' arranged by Darr Al-Watan Publishing House....being a kind of compendium of Du'a, Ibaadat and such similar actions sourced from the Holy Qur'an and Sunnah of the Leader of Mankind and Jinn, Sayyaduna Muhammad Rasulullah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam. Find time to examine it, as it will help in taking you... taking us closer to Allahu, Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala. en_Seventy_Ways_to_Earn_Reward_from_Allah.pdf
  9. As-Salaam alaikum, In Ayat 119 of Surat Tauba of the Holy Qur'an (9:119), Allah, Azzah Wa Jallah, says:-- "O BELIEVERS! FEAR ALLAH (adopt Taqwa), AND BE WITH THE SAADIQEEN (the Truthful ones)." The Saadiqeen are people who have a clear sense of right and wrong, and when truth is presented, they readily accept it. In the attachment below is a booklet titled: 'THE SAADIQEEN', by Majlisul 'Ulama of South Africa, which carries advices and admonitions from first generation 'Awliya... which have that in-built capacity to make us:-- (1) Comply with that Qur'anic Noble Ayat quoted above (9:119) (2) Reform ourselves and conduct our lives within the parameters of the Shari'ah (3) Constantly remember the AakhIrat and prepare for it, and (4) Make us cultivate Friendship with Allah, Tabaraka Wa Ta'ala, in the heart. The Saadiqeen is such an important piece of work that I will recommend you study/peruse... You will be glad you did. THE SAADIQEEN_ERead.pdf
  10. As-Salaam alaikum, The booklet titled 'Mukhtasar Hizbul A'azam', by Mulla Ali Qari, may Allah be Merciful to him, is a compendium of sorts as it takes us through all kinds/types of Du'a we can offer for our material and spiritual benefit(s)... in this worldly life or in the Hereafter. In short, it is a BOOK OF DU'A (s). Du'a is an expression of our servitude to Allah, Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, as it indicates our utter poverty and absolute dependence on Him.. it helps us recognize Him as Rabb (Lord) and Malik (Owner of Everything). This book takes us through this situation in PRACTICAL terms... open it and see.. and Learn... and.... MUKHTASASR-Hizbul-Azam.pdf
  11. As-Salaam alaikum, Ummul-Mumineen, Sayyada Khadijah Bint Khuwaylid, may Allah be pleased with her, was the first wife of the Noble Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, and the first in accepting Islam as her religion. She was/is an image of faith, good manners, integrity and truth. About her, the Prophet, peace be upon him, said:-- "She believed in me when no one else did; she accepted Islam when people rejected me; and she helped and comforted me when there was no one else to lend me a helping hand. And it is through her that Allah blessed me with children." Find hereby attached a brief but concise bio-data on this virtuous Lady, and partake in the obvious lessons contained therein.... lesson one could use for life. Khadijah_bint_Khuwaylid.82232343.pdf
  12. As-Salaam alaykum, In Ayat 87 of Surat Nisa'i of the Holy Qur'an (4:87), Allah, Azzah Wa-Jallah, says:-- "NONE HAS THE RIGHT TO BE WORSHIPED BUT HE. SURELY, HE WILL GATHER YOU TOGETHER ON THE DAY OF RESURRECTION ABOUT WHICH THERE IS NO DOUBT." Indeed, belief in the Final Day is one of the 6 pillars upon which Imaan (faith) is built. The Last Day... the Day of Resurrection is coming soon, and in respect of that I wish to invite your attention to the attached booklet from Dr. Umar al-Ashqar on this important matter... the Day of Resurrection. Find the time to examine it, as it will help you/us to re-focus on that inevitable event and act in preparation accordingly. Related to this, I also attach Imam Jalaludden Suyuti's work titled: 'The Sharhus Sudoor'... It is all about Death and the Grave. In it we understand what is death, what happens after death and such other matters. Of course, these are issues we all have to face as we have to taste death when our time comes. Many Regards.

  13. As-Salaam alaikum, In Ayat 31 of Surat Ali-Imran of the Holy Qur'an (3:31), Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala says:-- "SAY (O Messenger of Allah): IF YOU LOVE ALLAH, THEN FOLLOW ME AND ALLAH WILL LOVE YOU AND FORGIVE YOU YOUR SINS." How do we follow the Messenger, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, to comply with this Noble Ayat? Sheikh Umar Husayn al-Khatib has shown us how to exactly do that in his booklet, copy hereby attached, titled: 'Prophetic Guidance For Every Moment'. I recommend that you examine/study this booklet and introduce it to your loved ones. Best Wishes. prophetic_guidance_cc__2nd_edn__1_.pdf
  14. As-Salaam alaykum, Rajab is the 7th month of the Islamic Calendar and is one of the 4 sacred months. The Noble Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said, as related by Abu Hurairah, may Allah be pleased with him, that:-- "Sha'aban is my month, Rajab is the month of Allah Almighty, and Ramadan is the purifier." If a person fasts in this month, Allah Almighty blesses him/her with 3 things: Forgiveness of past sins, protection against future sins and protection against the thirst of the Day of Judgement." As we enter the sacred month of Ramadan 1437 A.H, may I have the pleasure of inviting your attention to the attached file on 'The Virtues of Rajab' for your perusal and use. Try to reap the Blessings of Rajab, as indicated in this file and also invite others to join you/us in these good fortunes. Best Wishes. Rajab.pdf
  15. As-Salaam alaikum, It pleased the Noble Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, while referring about his companinon Abu Bakr Siddiq, may Allah be pleased with him, to say:- "Love of Abu Bakr and gratitude to him are a duty on everyone of my Ummah."-- Al-Suyuti in his book, 'The History of the Khalifas'-pg.47 He also said, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, "Abu Bakr, you are the one whom Allah has freed from the hell fire."-[Tirmidhi, No. 3679]. It is my pleasure to invite your attention to the attached brief but concise biographical account in respect of this great companion of the Messenger of Allah, alaihi-Salaam, Abu Bakr al-Siddiq for your perusal... in it you will see the spirit of love and gratitude for the fine character, example and achievements of the Truthful one.
