International Day for the elimination of violence against women

 

since decades  women have been harrassed in the society, in the house, on the workplace…almost everywhere

 

Most societies are founded on the patriarchal system where man thinks he is the boss.

Well, Islam too has given man the DUTY of head in the house. Being the head is an immense responsibility.

To love, to be just, to care, to advise, to inform, to be polite, to work for a living and feed the whole family….. 

Yes, man has been granted this role within the house.

How many men are fulfilling their roles as directors of their home? This is another question

Many men are ill informed, harsh, ignorant and supervise their homes like tyrants. They swear to their wives and children, calling them names!!!

Many men marry intellectual women and they can not handle the intelligence of these women and when the latter try to speak with reason, they are summoned to SHUT UP!!!!

Many men are born with the arrogance: I am the boss, I am the head, I am a man!!!” and this is how in many communities, societies, women have to struggle to prove who they are!!!

While the Quran is a message of equality, equity, justice, social justice, love, harmony – we can wonder how many people, even Muslims, have twisted the beautiful and unique message of the Quran to serve their own egoistic purposes.

Wives are beaten, harrassed for household chores. Violence is not about beating. People can abuse you with their violent words, their constant mockeries….

Fabricated hadith are many to downgrade women. Women are always targeted. They are the one who will go to hell, they are the one who will be cursed….they are the one who are forced to marry against their will…and the list of agony is long.

 

Is this the message of Islam?

Has the prophet [peace and blessings be upon him] sent as a model for this kind of life? NO. He came to restore the inequities between men and women. He came to teach men the values of women….

While the Quran summons all believers to meditate and reflect [see surah 3 verse 190], many Muslims play with words: “OHHH meditation is haram” and then he enters into a sterile discussion just to prove his ignorant point. This scenario has being in vogue for many years and

generation after generation, many muslim families have lived in darkness. Men and women have lived together unhappy, like two intimate enemies!!!

It is time to wake up. Action of Tawheed means the action of obeying Allah alone. Allah commands men and women alike to serve Him, to listen to Him and to obey Him.

Many men have taken themselves as Creators. They command in sin and they want to be obeyed in those sins!!!!

We pray that people will reflect with their heart and mind. We pray that they will give a deep thought to their own daily actions – those actions that are creating more problem in their own houses. Those habits that are creating violence in their own houses ….

May God have mercy upon this humanity!!!!

 

I invite you to listen to this video of Maryam Rajavi

 

 

The doors of hell [jahannam]

This life has a cause and an effect. Whatever action you do, whether good or bad has a consequence.

It is sad that many people are driven by their emotions. They see life as a mere pleasure and they believe that whatever sin they do, they are automatically forgiven and therefore, they do not believe in hell, they do not believe in punishment after death.

This is totally unjust. If God does not punish the corrupters, the evil doers, the rapists, the murderers…then this life has no sense at all

Why do good, if good and evil are equally rewarded??

No, the Quran is clear. Paradise exists and hell exists

 

There are 7 doors of Jahannam:

1. Jaheem – the door to the shallowest level of Jahannam. It is reserved for those who believed in Allah and His Messenger [sallallahu ‘alayhi wa salaam], but who ignored His commands.

2. Jahanam – a deeper level where the idol-worshippers are to be sent on the Day of Judgement.

3. Sa’ir – is reserved for the worshippers of fire.

4. Saqar – this is where those who did not believe in Allah will be sent on the Day of Judgement.

5. Ladha – will be the home of those who are calling Prophet Musa (Moses) their God

6. Hawiyah – will be the abode those who worship Prophet Isa as their God.

7. Hutama – the deepest level of Jahannam. This is where the religious hypocrites will spend eternity. The worst of Allah’s creation are the Munafiqeen [hypocrites], whether they be mankind or Jinn, for they outwardly appear to accept, but inwardly reject Allah and his Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم

May Allah protect us from the torments of Jahannam.

Guarantee – learn that concept

Introduction

Today’s talk will be about a word which is very famous amongst the people. The people have given it much concern. This is the word known as a Guarantee (ضمان – to guarantee something). We all know that a guarantee has a great status amongst the people. They use it in their buying, selling and in general in all of their business. When you find a product that is guaranteed, you find that the people want to buy this product. They are more interested in buying this product than one that does not have a guarantee. The one who is going to buy something first asks if there is a guarantee on the product, how long is the guarantee, who is the one who is guaranteeing the product? These are the types of questions that the people may ask when they go to buy something. This is especially when the one who is giving the guarantee is known for his truthfulness and he is known to fulfil his promise if he guarantees his products that he is selling. So, what I want you to pay attention to is these three things:

  1. When buying something the person looks for the product that has a guarantee.
  2. He looks at the individual who is offering the guarantee.
  3. He looks at what he has to do in order to obtain the guarantee – how much money he has to pay etc.

If the guarantee can be acquired with only a few easy things then this is one of the things that make the guarantee that much better.

A Blessed Guarantee

We will now enter into a discussion about a blessed guarantee – a guarantee which has very great significance. It is a guarantee that unfortunately many of us have not been concerned with, even though we have a great concern and care about the guarantees as they relate to trade and business transactions in worldly affairs.

This guarantee today inshaa Allaah, that we are going to live by (implement in our lives), is one guaranteed by the Messenger صلى الله عليه و سلم, who did not speak of his own desires rather it is only revelation that has been revealed to him and he صلى الله عليه و سلم is the one who is truthful and the one who is believed.

وَمَا يَنطِقُ عَنِ الْهَوَى إِنْ هُوَ إِلَّا وَحْيٌ يُوحَى
Nor does he speak of (his own) desire. It is only a Revelation revealed. [An-Najm 53:3-4]

The reward of this guarantee is the Jannah of Allaah سبحانه و تعالى, which its width is like that of the Heavens and the Earth, in which there is what no eyes have seen and what no ears have heard and what has never crossed the hearts of mankind.

The things with which this guarantee is acquired are extremely easy things for one to do; it does not require much effort from the servant. The text of this guarantee will follow:

Hadith of the Guarantee

The text of this guarantee is mentioned in the Musnad of Imaam Ahmad and declared to be Hasan by Shaykh al-Albaani رحمه الله in Saheeh al-Jaami’[1]. It is narrated on the authority of Ubaadah ibn Saamit رضى الله عنه who said that the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم said: Guarantee for me six things from yourself and I will guarantee for you the Jannah:

 

  • Tell the truth when you speak
  • Keep a promise when you make it
  • When entrusted fulfill the trust
  • Protect you private parts
  • Lower your gaze

 

  1. Guard your hand (from hitting people)

Notice, the guarantee is based on another guarantee. The Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم said “you guarantee me six things, I will guarantee for you the Jannah”. These six things are very easy and are from the doors of goodness that are lightweight i.e. they do not require from the servant too much action or stress. Whoever does them in his life and he protects them, then when he dies Jannah will be guaranteed for him and the path to it will be emphasized and easy.

Believers, learn what can change your life for the better

Allah has decreed that, in this life, hardships and disasters strike both believers and non-believers. For a non-believer, they are inconveniences that hinder him from proceeding with his normal involvement in the worldly life. For a believer, on the other hand, they are instances of rest and remembrance, tests that promise great rewards, and indications of atonement and expiation of sins. Regardless of how little is the harm that strikes a believer, it carries with it good news of forgiveness and elevated rank (in Jannah). The Righteous Predecessors used to be pleased when a hardship afflicted them, seeing it as a token of Allah’s forgiveness and benevolence.
Expiations of Sins
Abu Hurayrah radi Allahu anhu reported that the Prophet said: “Hardships continue to befall a believing man and woman in their body, family, and property, until they meet Allah Subhanahu ta’ala burdened with no sins.” [Tirmithee]
Sign of Allah’s Love
Abu Hurayrah radi Allahu anhu reported that the Prophet sallallahu alayhe wa sallamsaid: “Whenever Allah wills good for a person, He subjects him to adversity” [Bukharee and others]
Sign of Eeman
Abu Hurayrah radi Allahu anhu and Ka’b Bin Maalik radi Allahu anhu reported that the Prophet sallallahu alayhe wa sallam said: “The parable of a believer is that of a fresh and moist plant; the wind tilts it this way and that way; and so is the believer; he continues to be subject to affliction. And the parable of a hypocrite is that of a firm cedar tree; it does not shake – until it is uprooted all at once.” [Bukharee and Muslim]
Sign of Righteousness
The prophets and righteous people are afflicted the most, and their rewards are the highest. Sa’d radi Allahu anhu reported that the Prophet sallallahu alayhe wa sallamsaid: “The most in their suffering among the people are the prophets, then the best, then the (next) best. One is afflicted in accordance with his deen (faith). If his deen is firm his affliction is hard, and if his deen is weak, his affliction is light. Indeed, one would be so much subjected to adversity until he walks among the people without any sins.” [Ahmad, Tirmithee]
Early Punishment
Anas radi Allahu anhu reported that the Prophet sallallahu alayhe wa sallam said: “When Allah wills good for a servant of His, He expedites his punishment in this life; and when He wills retribution for a servant of His, He holds his sins for Him to judge him by them on the Day of Resurrection.” [Tirmithee]
Multiplication of Rewards
Anas radi Allahu anhu reported that the Prophet sallallahu alayhe wa sallam said: “The amount of reward is in accordance with the amount of suffering. When Allah subhanahu ta’alaloves some people, He tries them (with affliction). He who then is content (with Allah’s decree) has achieved the acceptance (of Allah), and he who is dissatisfied (with Allah’s decree) will attain the anger (of Allah).” [Tirmithee]
Rewards for Sickness
One should not look to sickness as a gloomy episode, but should remember the great good in it. It is one form of affliction with which Allah subhanahu ta’ala tests His ‘ibaad (servants), giving them a
chance to acquire rewards, as was explained above, as is further emphasized below.
Removal of Sins and Elevation in Ranks
Abu Hurayrah radi Allahu anhu reported that the Prophet sallallahu alayhe wa sallamsaid: “Whenever a Muslim is afflicted by harm from sickness or other matters, Allah will drop his sins because of that, like a tree drops its leaves.” [Bukharee and Muslim]
Abu Sa’eed al-Khudree radi Allahu anhureported that the Prophet sallallahu alayhe wa sallam said: “A Muslim is not afflicted by hardship, sickness, sadness, worry, harm, or depression – even if pricked by a thorn, but Allah expiates his sins because of that.” [Bukharee and Muslim]
Sa’eed said, ” I was with Salmaan radi Allahu anhu when he visited a sick man in Kindah (in Persia), and he said to him: ” Expect good because Allah subhanahu ta’ala makes a believer’s sickness an expiation (for his sins) and a period of rest. However, when a disbeliever falls sick, he is like a camel whose owner ties it then lets it loose – it does not understand why it was tied nor why it was freed.” [Bukharee]
‘Aishah radi Allahu anhu narrated that once some pain afflicted the Prophet sallallahu alayhe wa sallam causing him to suffer and turn about in his bed. She said: “Had one of us done this, you would have blamed him.” He sallallahu alayhe wa sallam replied: “An ailment is intensified for the righteous. Whenever a believer is afflicted by a hardship, whether it is a thorn or more, a sin is taken off from him because of it, and he is elevated by one rank (in Jannah).” [Ahmad]
Retaining Rewards for Deeds Before Sickness
Usually, when a believer falls sick, he would not be able to do the same amount of good (prayer, fasting, helping Muslims etc) that he used to do when he was well. But Allah out of His great mercy, continues to record for him the good deeds that he was forced to stop because of his sickness. Abu Moosa Al-Ash’aree narrated that the Prophet sallallahu alayhe wa sallam said: “For a traveling or sick person, his deeds will be recorded in accordance with what he used to do when he was resident or well.” [Bukharee]
‘Abdullah Bin ‘Amr reported that the Prophet said: “No (believing) person gets sick, but (his deeds) will be recorded for him in accordance with what he used to do when he was well.” [Bukharee] Anas radi Allahu anhu reported that the Prophet sallallahu alayhe wa sallam said: ” No Muslims body is afflicted by Allah, but He will record (his deeds) foe him in accordance with what he used to do when he was well – as long as he is sick. Thus, if He takes his life, He forgives him; and if He cures him, He washes him (from sins).” [Bukharee]
‘Uqbah Bin ‘Aamir reported that the Prophet sallallahu alayhe wa sallam said: “Each days deeds are sealed with it. Thus, when a believer gets sick, the angels say, “Our lord! Your servant such and such, You have restrained him (from doing good this day).” And the Lord replies “Seal his day in accordance with his (usual) deeds, until he is cured or dies”. [Ahmad]
Reason for the Reward
‘Atta Bin Rabaah reported that Ibn ‘Abbaas radi Allahu anhu told him, “Do you want to see a woman from the people of Jannah (paradise)?” He said “Yes”. He said: “It is this black woman. She came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhe wa sallam saying, “I have (epileptic) seizures, and I get exposed, so supplicate to Allah for me.” He sallallahu alayhe wa sallamsaid: “If you wish, be patient and you will attain Jannah; or if you wish, I will ask Allah to cure you.” She replied, “I will be patient! But my body gets exposed (because of the fall), so supplicate to Allah for me that I do not become exposed.” and hesallallahu alayhe wa sallamdid.” [Bukharee and Muslim]
The scholars have differed in opinion as to whether a sick person will be rewarded for the sickness itself or for being patient during it. The correct opinion is that if he is patient and submits to Allah’s will, as in the above hadeeth, he would be rewarded for both the submission and the sickness, otherwise, he would not be rewarded at all; because he resented Allah’s decree.
This is what should be understood from Ibn hajar al-’Asqalaanees words: “The authentic hadeeths are clear in that the rewards are recorded once affliction strikes a Muslim. As for patience and acceptance, they are virtues for which a person may get additional rewards over those for the affliction.” ‘Abdullah Bin ‘Amr reported that the Prophet sallallahu alayhe wa sallamsaid: “If a Muslim is pricked by (as little as) a thorn in the worldly life, and he seeks its reward from Allah, some of his sins will be removed, because of it, on the Day of Judgment.”[Bukharee]
The believers are only those who, when Allâh is mentioned, feel a fear in their hearts and when His Verses (this Qur’ân) are recited unto them, they (i.e. the Verses) increase their Faith; and they put their trust in their Lord (Alone); (Al-Anfal 8:2)
May Allah bless your life and bless you for your devotion
May Allah bless your family and make your life  a successful one
Ammaara
