My Shallow Eulogy On Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)

My Shallow Eulogy on Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh)
"My mother is mother because she told me that she's my mother and I believed in her but Aisha (RA) is my mother because Allaah told me that she's my mother. (Wa azwajuhu umma'atuhum).." Shaykh Sulaiman Moola
Our Mother Aisha (RA) was asked about the character make up of Rasulullaah (Pbuh) and she said: "His character was the Qur'an" meaning he was Qur'an personified.

He (Pbuh) said of himself: "My Lord nurtured me and He perfected my nurturing."

The Arab poet said: "Humanity in its entirety was compelled to acknowledge the beauty of Muhammad (Pbuh) to such an extent that even his enemies had to say: "as long as we hate him, there isn't more honest man than he."

One of the specialities of Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) is that Allaah made a sublte mention of all his limbs and organs in the Qur'an.

Imam Abu Hanifah said: Muhammad (Pbuh) was a human but not the common human, the emerald and the rubies are a stone but not the common stone."

Once Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) corrected someone's mistake and the companion said: "Wallaahi! I've never seen a more gentle teacher and tutor than Muhammad (Pbuh)."

This was a human who journeyed beyond Jibril (AS) in Al-Miraj yet when he came down to the world he humbled himself so much that he had time for ordinary citizens and children also.

A Tabi'i approached Miqdad bin Aswad (RA) and asked him to kindly allow him to have a glance at his (Miqdad's) face because he had the privilege of seeing the blessed face of Rasulullaah ( Pbuh).
Wallaahi! Just as the character of Prophet Muhammad ( Pbuh) was perfected in every front no less was the beauty of the character of the companions that lived with him.

My message: What character of Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) are we exhibiting today?
May Allaah unite us with the pious.

Humility Surely Leads To Paradise!!!

Humility Surely Leads To Paradise

In English they say: "He who is wrapped up in himself makes a pretty much small package."

And we are advised to stop patting ourselves on the shoulder because we might just dislocate it.

The Prophet (may the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) encouraged one and all to be humble at all times for it is piety coupled with humility that draws us closer to Allaah.

Someone said it so beautifully that:

"I consider every human better than me, because regarding his sins I only have speculations but regarding my sins, I have certainty that I sin."

Abu Hameed Al-Ghazali said: "The perception that you are better than anyone is blatant arrogance."

My advice: Whenever people praise you, take a second to remind yourself of those sins you commit which Allaah has veiled them from. This will only introduce Humilty to you.

May Allaah bless us with this great virtue of humility.

Is Modesty a Reality Now?

In the Name of Allaah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.

Eeman has many branches but one significant branch of eeman is Modesty and bashfulness.

Rasulullaah (May the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) has more modesty and bashfulness than a virgin.

The presence of modesty and bashfulness makes us fear Allaah, its absence leads to rebellion against the orders of Allaah.

You have never seen a man seriously afraid of sinning without having the good virtue of modesty and bashfulness.

Allaah has cursed the male who cast a lustful gaze at a strange female and that female who presents herself seductively so that strange men can lust after her.

Immorality is so common that morality is becoming a thing of the past.

I leave you with this thought provoking analogy...

The dressed chicken is the naked chicken while the feathered chicken is the undressed chicken. Confused civilization trying to turn our women to chickens.

Never Too Late!!!

In the Name of Allaah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.

"Has not the time yet arrived for the believers that their hearts should melt with the remembrance of Allah and should submit to the Truth sent down by Him.." Q57v16

We are encouraged by Allaah to persist on the path of truth and to adhere strictly to it…..come rain come shine.

The Human system in whatever capacity is prone to mistakes and imperfections, hence we need to always refer back to Quran and Sunnah in order to attain felicity.
Do not spread mischief on the face of earth.

Those that do not believe in the Hereafter have their evil deeds made seemingly okay for them.

We take pride in designing our own houses and palaces but Allaah designed Jannah with His Own Hand. What then can explain the beauty of Jannah!

It doesn't pay to be close to Jannah, it pays to be in...

Fear Allaah and make reconciliation among yourselves, believe me this is one action that even Allaah will do among His servants on Qiyamat.

Hasn't Allaah given us enough life and opportunities that if we had really wanted to know and to Fear Him we would have done so?

Think and Reflect! May Allaah inspire us with the truth always and May He take us to Jannatul Firdaus.

A Peep Into The World of Justice!!!

All praise belong to Allaah who has commanded us in His Flawless Book to be Just and has forbade us from exceeding the limits set by Him.

On the Strength of Abu Dharr (may Allaah be pleased with him) : The Messenger of Allah, (peace and blessings be upon him) said: Allaah, the Exalted and Glorious, said, “O my servants, I have forbidden oppression for myself and I have made it forbidden among you, so do not oppress one another…" Sahihul Muslim 2577

Allaah has indeed made oppression and sins forbidden for us. He has equally forbidden us from dealing unjustly even with non-Muslims.

We are a nation that honors its word even if it be in respect to a non-Muslim.

It is my realization and affirmation that Muhammad (may the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) is Allaah's bondsman and a Messenger from Him sent to the entire humanity.

Allaah is the Truth.

Oh people! Fear Allaah the Most High and know that verily, Allaah has commanded us to be just in every aspect of our lives.

Allaah has informed us that it is imperative and compulsory upon everyone to be under the system of justice at every time and at every location.

Allaah says in His inimitable style that: "Verily, Allaah orders justice and kindness, and giving (help) to the relatives, and He forbids immoral sins, and evil and tyranny…." Q16 v 90

Allaah equally says: "Verily, Allaah loves those who deal with equity." 

In an authentic Hadith recorded by Imam Muslim, Rasulullaah (may the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "The just, who are fair in their decisions, families and those under their authority, will be on podiums made of light, to the right of the Throne."

Here this out: Allaah did not only command us to be just but He has categorically declared His love for those who deal with equity.

It is incumbent upon us Muslims to know that the position of Justice in Islam is great and its reward with Allaah is big.

Justice has many headings and it is compulsory on anyone to discharge his duties justly on those below him and those he is responsible for.

As for the Imam (the leader) it is imperative and compulsory upon him to deal justly among those under his leadership according to his capacity.

Allaah says: "Verily, Allaah commands that you should render back the trusts to those, to whom they are due: and that when you judge between them, you judge with justice…." Q4 v 58

Rasulullaah (may the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "Seven people will be under the shade of Allaah on the Day when there will be no shade but His." A just leader is among. 

As for a Judge, it is compulsory upon him to be just when passing judgments. Allaah says: "And Judge between them with what was reveled from Allaah."  Surah Ma'idah

Dawud (peace be upon him) was a prophet and a judge, in respect to this Allaah says: "O Dawud! Verily, We have placed you as a successor on the earth; so judge you between men in truth (and justice) and follow not your desire--for it will mislead you from the path of Allaah." Suratul Sad v 26

What about the Father, it is equally compulsory upon him to deal justly among his children. That he gifts no one among them exclusively without balancing it among all of his children.

No father is allowed in Islam to show any difference among his children. Rasulullah (may the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) commands us to deal justly between them.

You don't buy one a car, nor a house and leave the other hanging. This is injustice from Islamic perspective.

In Islam, there is no difference between a male and a female child when it comes to just dealing and equity. The father must be just.

What about the husband, it is incumbent and compulsory upon him to deal justly between his wives. This is Islam….

Allaah commands the husband to relate with his wives with that which is good and with justice and equity. Never to prefer one above the other in terms of discharging his responsibilities to them.

To the husband, Allaah says: "...so do not incline too much to one of them as to leave the other hanging." Q4v129

Qur'an is the only Religious Book on the face of earth that asks Men to marry only one wife on the grounds of Justice.

Allaah says: "And if you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then (marry) only one." Q4v3

Islam is brimming with Justice. Touch it from any angle and it will attract you by its Justice and comprehensiveness.

It is equally compulsory and imperative upon the generality of the Muslims to be just in their statements.

Allaah says: "Do not allow your hatred for a people  provoke you to injustice, be just, that is closer to piety." Q5v8

Whenever you want to utter anything, be Just in your proclamations and sincere in your actions.

Speak the truth even if it is detestable to you and the world.

Your truth will rescue you in shaa Allaah.

Stand for the truth even if it be against your parents. Islam must prevail above any blood ties.

Qur'an is truthful in its stories of the past nations and its submission on the events of the future. Qur'an is just in its judgments.

Islam is a religion that does not condone injustice, transgression, oppression and sins.

Nay! Islam is consistent with truth and justice at every time and at every location.

The Word of your Lord is brimming with truth and Justice….This is Qur'an….This is Sunnah…..This is Islam…

Oh humanity! This is our Religion, A Religion established upon justice in all of its ramifications. Alhamdulillah bi ni'matil Islam wal Eeman.

Yours in Islam Abdullaah Musa Abdul (Penabdul)
