there exist several worlds, please learn about them

The Qur’an is the only Book which has mentioned several worlds:

The material world in which we are all living now

The universe

The mother’s womb is a nine month aboard

The tomb where all dead bodies will lie

The  illiyin and the sijjin

The Akhrirah – paradise or hell

Th reality on earth is an illusion. It is temporary. Allah has created it with a fine balance and has established multiple species in terms of animals, birds etc and also angels, jinns and human beings. All these co exist together to understand polarity which is called Al Meezan ( a fine balance )

This world is an illusion made up by many darknesses [zulumat]. It has many stages of darkness and this darkness envelopes the mind, the soul and the brain. This is why bad people use the jinns to overpower believers with dark energies.

Of course, this current era is witnessing more darkness and as such, people are undergoing many tests and trials which are often unbearable.

As you know ISLAM IS THE ONLY WAY OF LIFE that can challenge all other man made concepts and religions. Why? Do you think this is a kind of arrogance? No. The fact is ISLAM IS BASED ON THE CONCEPT OF GOD. It englobes the understanding of enlightenment, awakening and deep insight of man. Man is the only creature which is endowed with the power to research, to accomplish and to realise. This is why the Quran’s first command is: Iqra

Research, learn, study. Do not waste time in this material world. Wake up!!!

Do not confine your spirit in vain thoughts and do not waste your time in thinking how to make money…

Let us all wake up from the sleep of the heedless

Hajj the fifth pillar of Islam – photography

Hajj is the fifth pillar of Islam. It is an annual Islamic pilgrimage to Makkah in the month of Zul Hijj. Hajj is  a mandatory religious duty for Muslims that must be carried out at least once in their lifetime by all adult Muslims who are physically and financially capable of undertaking the journey.

Do you greet with hi, hello or with salam?

Are you among those who prefer ‘Hi! how are you?” “Hello, how are you today?” instead of ” As salamu alaykum wa rahmatullah” – peace and blessings to  you

I have travelled in some countries, and I was stunned how people do not greet with peace but they greet with the etiquette of hi and hello which actually does not mean anything.

Are you among those who complain that this life is difficult, full of trials and pain? Well, start with a clear conscience, by saying ‘salam’ to every Muslim. Give salam to your spouse, your children when they wake up; greet them with salam when they come back home. Greet your Muslim neighbours with salam, greet Muslims on the road with salam

 

SALAAM AND SMILE

These are the two things that will bring blessings in your life because the angels will shower mercy upon you and Allah is always with those who greet salam.

LET’S LOOK AT THIS SIMILE

Can a rich want to become poor? Can a healthy want to be sick? Can they want to exchange roles?

The answer is clear: NO

Echanging salam is richness, wealth, it is about your spiritual wealth and healthiness. Why do you want to take a poor ‘hi’ and leave a rich ‘salam’? Why do you want to leave spiritual and material blessings for poverty ?

PRACTISE THE SALAM AND SMILE….KEEP SMILING

 

HAPPY SMILE AND DON’T FORGET TO SAY IT….SALAM SALAM SALAM

 

Well, as salam alaykum to you all

 

May Allah bless you, bless your dear ones and shower His Divine mercy upon you all

Stay blessed

Ammaara

                                                                                                                                                                   

A recap on the salam

 

Salam, islamic salutation

Salam comes from the word s-l-m from which the word islam is also derived from. Islam and salam convey both the sense of peace, unity and friendship.

Allah has wished for us that we greet each other with salam.

We should revive this islamic salutation by always greet our muslim brothers and sisters with:

“As salaam wa alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu”

It is said that salam (salutation) has 70 rewards, 69 parts of which are for one who salutes and one part of which is for one who returns the salutation.

Description

Among the salutations of various nations, `salam’, the islamic salutation and greeting, has a special luminosity, because it indicates both welcoming and peace, pleasure and friendship, and also wish for peace from God for the other person. This is why the salutation of the people of paradise is salam. Moreover, angels of mercy receive the virtuous and good-doers with salam.

Muslims should therefore feel pride in saying salaam in a loud voice; each time you meet a person; even though you meet this same person several times within a day, you should greet him/her with salaam. There is blessing in this word – there lies in it the secret of your success. not greeting salaam or feeling ashamed to greet salam is a weakness in our faith. Those who pretend that they cannot greet salaam at work or in front of non muslims, they have in fact destroyed the very foundation of islam which is based on unity, peace and blessings.

May Allah always keep us strong and sincere in our deen

As salaam wa alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu

What we need to know concerning the jinns

World of Jinns
 
Dr Qayum Hamid Changal
The word Jinn always captivates our thought process followed by end number of questions. The problem is all these movies and other horror shows on television have tampered our minds badly about their appearance. Then, we have other section of media and academics that forces us to believe that Jinns don’t exist. And, many of us are caught in between the two, all imaginary and slapdash. Another perception breathes in our society that educated class shouldn’t believe in their existence, especially those who peruse science. In nutshell, most of us are caught in the ignorance and disinformation about the Jinns.
Being Muslim, I believe in their existence and there is no second thought about it. The literal meaning of Jinn is hidden from sight, or concealed. The word is of an Arabic origin, thus it makes us understand that they are hidden from us.
It’s mentioned in Qur’an, “Verily he [Shaytaan] and his qabeeluhu [his soldiers from the jinn or his tribe] see you from where you cannot see them…” [Al-A’raaf 7:27]. But, they may appear before us in different forms, animals as well as people. It could be any animal, a snake, dog, cat, etc. Thus, there’s every possibility that we may see them and yet unaware. It’s a very tricky situation, thus they may deceive us anytime in any form or state.
Another question is, what are they made up of? It’s mentioned in Qur’an and Sunnah that they are made up of fire. Allah says in Qur’an, “And the jinns did He create from a smokeless flame of fire.” [Al-Rahmaan 55:15]. It’s compulsory to mention here that Shaitan is also a Jinn and is made up of fire. But, the interesting question here arises that if Shaitan is made up of fire, how it will be tormented in the hell fire? A simple answer is, aren’t we humans made up of dust? But that doesn’t mean that we are still in the form of dust. We have flesh, bones, blood, sensation and soul. In a similar manner Allah created Jinn and Shaitan from fire, but they are not the fire now.
There are the good or pious Jinns, and then there are the bad ones. Allah, just like us humans, has gifted them the reasoning, the process of understanding and choosing between right or wrong. They do commit sins of different degrees and forms too like us. Allah created them to worship Allah Alone, with no partner or associate.
It’s mentioned in Qur’an, “And I (Allaah) created not the jinns and humans, except they should worship Me (Alone).” [Al-Dhaariyaat 51:56]. Though they have their distinct nature and features, Allah created them for the same reason He created us.
There are various types of Jinns. Some are like flying winds and wings, some can dwell in the form of animals, and the third form can travel and rest. There’s a Sahi Hadith regarding it. Abu Tha’labah al-Khushani said: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘The jinn are of three types: a types that has wings, and they fly through the air; a type that looks like snakes and dogs; and a type that stops for a rest then resumes its journey.”
Their powers too are far different than others. Allah has bestowed them with the unique powers or qualities, like they can travel or fly much faster. Another unique power that Allah has provided them is they can even enter the human body. It’s mentioned in Qur’an and Hadith, thus there’s no dispute regarding it. In Qur’an it’s mentioned, “Those who eat riba (interest) will not stand (on the Day of Resurrection) except like the standing of a person beaten by Shaytan leading him to insanity. That is because they say: ‘Trading is only like Riba’…” [2:275]. Ibn Taymiyah said, “The fact that jinn can enter human bodies is proven by the consensus of Ahl al-Sunnah wa’l-Jamaah.”
The person who is occupied by the Jinn shall have different features and actions. First, he may suffer from epileptic seizures, speak in a language that’s alien to oneself (means one may not understand it), the carpet on what he’s sitting may be pulled away, the other things in the room (utensils, furniture, hanging lamps, etc) starts shaking as at the time of earthquake, etc. Those who deny it are denying Qur’an and Sunnah, thus committing the grave sin. Undoubtedly, it shall be regarded as the profanity and disrespect towards our religion Islam.
Jinns do eat and drink like the humans, even steal the food from us humans. After listening to various individuals and their personal experiences, Jinns even steal or scatter our possessions, may get obsessed with certain individual, place or thing.
If one recites Qur’an in loud voice they may come around to listen to it. As said earlier, there are the pious ones who pray like us and are very obedient to Qur’an and Sunnah. And, the disobedient ones are against Qur’an and Sunnah, anti-Islam and they try to harm the humans. Thus, some Jinns are Muslims and some are ‘Kafirs’. It’s mentioned in Surah Jinn (72:11), ” [Some jinn said:] ‘There are among us some that are righteous, and some the contrary; we are groups, each having a different way (religious sects, etc.)”.
The million dollar question arises that where do these Jinns live? We have religious proof that explains that they usually live in the ruins, dirty places like toilets and bathrooms, garbage dumps, etc. That’s why Prophet Muhammed (S.A.W) used to recite the special Dua before entering the toilet. It is, “Allaahumma innee a’oodhu bika min al-khubuthi wa’l-khabaa’ith (O Allaah, I seek refuge with You from the evil ones, male and female),” reported by al-Bukhaari, 142; and Muslim, 375.

There is a lot to write and discuss about Jinns. But, most importantly is that we have to believe in their existence.

I am a doctor and my profession may suggest me strictly not to believe in them. But, my religion is above any profession, place or emotion, thus I have to believe in it. And, it’s not a blind faith at all. We have all the proofs mentioned in Qur’an and Hadith, it should be enough for us to accept their presence and at the same time respect their existence. May Allah guide us to the righteous path and bless us with the power of thinking to learn and follow Islam.

Qur’anic verses to repel jinn:

What to understand by: complete surrender unto God the Almighty?

If you put your faith completely in Allah, He will arrange for your sustenance in the same way as He provides for the birds. They go out in the morning with their stomachs empty and return filled in the evening. (Tirmidhi)

This hadith shows us the importance to have total faith in Allah. It is not an easy thing to do because shaytan plays various tricks upon us. He whispers all sorts of negative thoughts and doubts.

In order to be able to trust Allah, we need to train ourselves through constant effort and ask Allah for His help and Generosity

Allah is the Sustainer of all. He provides for all.

Let us pray to Him that He gives us our provision daily and remember: the best of provision is TAQWA

Ten Interpretations To A Happier Life


by Khushi

 

Stress affects all of us and can show its manifestations in various forms. We cannot avoid it altogether, but what we can do is follow some of these hints to reduce stress from our lives. Here is a list of ten quotations and how we can interpret these to experience a happier and stress free tomorrow.

 

1) Cry a river; build a bridge; get over it.

 

Let go of past failures, sadness and people whom we remember but who no longer care for us. This sounds so easy but it’s easier said than done. We all have gone through our share of heartaches and sadness. But when we constantly remember the pain and suffering we had endured, we are allowing that sadness to gain an upper hand over us. What we must realize is that what has happened, has happened. It’s over and done with. People change and times change. Moving on in life is very difficult but it’s the first constructive step to a better you.

 

2) Everything happens in its own time.

 

There are things that we do and expect to be rewarded for which does not happen. In offices, there might be a promotion that we might have wanted, a high score on a test, or a job offer that we were sure that was to be given to us that never worked out. At such times we lose perspective and blame our luck and become despondent. We need to realize that there is a time for everything that happens in our lives. And when the appropriate time comes, things will start working the way they were supposed to work.

 

3) You are the only person who can make yourself happy.

 

Think of « your » happiness, too, and be kind to yourself. In life, all of us have goals and ambitions. But in the pursuit of those goals, we lose sight of the bigger picture that we are doing these things to make ourselves happy. This is seen especially in the case of mothers who are doing so many things for their kids and family that they don’t remember when the last time was that they did something for their own happiness.

 

It happens to all of us. Be more gentle with yourself. Make yourself happy, and that can be done in so many ways. Treat yourself to some ice cream, buy a book that you were dying to read, spend a day lolling in the bed doing nothing. We deserve it and so do our bodies.

 

4) Laughter is the best tranquilizer with no side effects.

 

Laugh each and every day of your life. Humorous situations happen to us every single day. Whether you choose to enjoy the moment or not is your decision. There are so many excuses in our day-to-day life to have a good laugh. All we need to do is just look at the lighter side of life and enjoy the moment. When you laugh, don’t think whether people are watching you or how much you laugh. It’s their problem that they cannot find the humor in the situation that you have found.

 

5) Happiness is a journey, not a destination.

 

As we make our journey through life, we have so many things to savor and experience. There is no such thing as instant happiness or happiness that can be found somewhere. Live your life each day, the same way you would climb a mountain. An occasional glance towards the summit keeps the goal in mind, but many beautiful scenes are to be observed from each new vantage point.

 

6) Do today what others won’t so you can live tomorrow like others can’t.

 

So many times we are faced with duties and work that we are not happy doing or performing. In those times, instead of hating or shirking from that work, we can try and make use of the thought that somehow, whatever we are doing will prove beneficial to us one day or another. Maybe the results won’t be seen tomorrow, but surely we will benefit because we did something that no one was willing to do. An example would be the people who started companies which are million dollar establishments today. They dared to venture and put their money in something that their colleagues would not have been willing to do, and today their work is paying off rich dividends.

 

7) It is never too late to be what you might have become.

 

There are several factors that cause us to end up doing the work we do. Many of us, at some point of time, would have definitely wanted to make a career change and thought that it’s too late to do it. But the truth is it’s never too late. You can start doing whatever we want to do because it’s your life and your decisions. Think of the people who attend college in their late 60’s and 70’s because they always wanted to do it. Such people are the ones who truly believe in this adage.

 

Treasure the love you receive; it will survive long after your gold and good health have vanished.

 

We always seem to cherish our material possessions more than we should. But life can take a lot more from us. Today we might have good health, family love and a good home to go back to. What we forget is that there are so many calamities that can take away all our comforts, but love is something that can never be taken away. We need to be more demonstrative of our love towards others and treat our loved ones with more kindness and affection.

 

9) The journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step.

 

Any huge task that needs to be done seems very daunting at first. But if we analyze the task carefully, and do it step-by-step, we will find that things get resolved very quickly and easily. But we need to be bold enough to take the first small step. Once that is done, we just need to proceed with additional small steps towards our goal.

 

10) Always have something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.

 

These three things are what will keep the flame burning within all of us. Something to do will keep us busy, something to love will keep us motivated and something to hope for will take us faster towards our goal

O people, spend in the way of Allah – fissabilillah

Allah (swt) said: “Spend, O son of Adam, and I shall spend on you.”

Many of us are very fortunate in having substantial bank balances, successful jobs, thriving businesses, powerful positions, nice holidays and comfortable houses to live in. There is nothing wrong in possessing and using these, as they are Allah’s blessings, which He likes to see on His servants. “ But the bounty of your Lord-rehearse and proclaim.” (Quran 93;11). We as Muslims have also been told to ask Allah (swt) for His fadhl- His favour, grace and bounty.

However, along with this, we have been warned against extravagance. In the Quran, we are told: “But spend not wastefully (your wealth) in the manner of a spendthrift. Verily spendthrifts are brothers of the Shayateen (devils); and the Shaitan is ever ungrateful to his Lord.” (17;26-27)

We have also been told to be grateful to Allah and this gratitude is to be shown not just through our hearts and tongues, but also through our deeds. This means that we are meant to use the blessings Allah has bestowed upon us in His Cause and to share these with the less privileged people around us. In the Quran, we are told: “And in their wealth and possessions (was remembered) the right of the (needy) him who asked and him who (for some reason) was prevented (from asking).” (51;19)

We have also been told in the Quran about man: “But he has not attempted to pass on the path that is steep. (i.e. the path that will lead to goodness and success). And what will make you know the path that is steep? (It is) freeing a neck. Or giving food in a day of hunger, to an orphan near of kin. Or to a Miskin (poor) cleaving to dust (out of misery). Then he became of those who believed (in the Islamic Monotheism) and recommended one another to perseverance and patience, and (also) recommended one another to pity and compassion.” (90;11-18)

Many of us think that by fulfilling our duty of giving zakah – our obligatory charity, we have fulfilled our responsibility to the needy and do not think of going beyond this. However while this is a basic requirement, the non fulfillment of which make us sinners, in the Quran, Allah instructs the Prophet (saw): “They ask you how much they are to spend; say: “What is beyond your needs.” (2;219) This verse is indeed very thought provoking. These ‘needs’, for us may be sending our children overseas for education, their lavish weddings, giving them each a house or at least a plot of land and the list goes on and on… While making sure that we spend and save enough for their basic needs, remembering what our Prophet (saw) said: “When a Muslim spends something on his family intending to receive Allah’s reward it is regarded as Sadaqa for him.”(Bukhari), we must strike a balance between this and what we give away to the needy.

When we find ourselves leaning more towards accumulation of wealth beyond our reasonable needs, we should remind ourselves of the hadith where our Prophet (saw) said, “Who among you considers the wealth of his heirs dearer to him than his own wealth?” They replied, “O Allah’s Apostle! There is none among us but loves his own wealth more.” The Prophet (saw) said, “So his wealth is whatever he spends (in Allah’s Cause) during his life (on good deeds) while the wealth of his heirs is whatever he leaves after his death.” (Bukhari) There is also a hadith narrated by Aisha (raa) that once they slaughtered a goat (and distributed most of its meat). Then the Prophet (saw) said: “What is left now?” Aisha answered: “Nothing except a shank.” He (saw) remarked: “(In fact) all of it is saved except the shank.” (Tirmizi)

It is also important to remind ourselves whenever we find ourselves reluctant to spend in charity that Allah tells us in the Quran: “Shaitan threatens you with poverty and bids you to conduct unseemly. Allah promises you His forgiveness and bounties and Allah cares for all and He knows all things.” (2;268) He also tells us: “And those saved from the covetousness of their own souls, they are the ones that achieve prosperity.”(64;16)

Sadaqa i.e. charity has many benefits for us. In addition to earning us Allah’s goodwill and His pleasure, it is a shield against calamities. Our Prophet (saw) said: “Give the sadaqa without delay for it stands in the way of calamity.” (Razin). “Sadaqa protects you from a painful death and difficulties.” (Ahmed)

By giving the sadaqa, we may be saved from such calamities which can drain our resources. They could be health problems – ours or our family members, which can eat away our bank balance or our ability to enjoy what we have, loss of employment or our business success, our children getting divorced after spending so much on their weddings etc. (God forbid) – and the list of possibilities goes on… If we are willing to invest in locker fees to safeguard our valuables or a security guard for our houses to protect our lives and possessions, why do we not have enough foresight to think of sadaqa as this same security measure? In fact, sadaqa, unlike these expenditures and things such as insurance premiums is actually a ‘win-win’ situation. We are depositing our wealth with Allah where it cannot be burnt, stolen or drowned and has a guaranteed return!

Depositing our money with Allah i.e. giving in charity is the best investment we can ever make. He tells us in the Quran: “So fear Allah as much as you can. Listen and obey; and spend in charity for the benefit of your own souls. And those saved from the covetousness of their own souls, they are the ones that achieve prosperity. If you loan to Allah a beautiful loan, he will double it to your (credit) and he will grant you Forgiveness: For Allah is All-Thankful, Most Forbearing.”(64;16)

At a time when there is so much suffering in our country, there is no justification for extravagant spending on our part. Our generosity to others should be at its peak when there is so much misery all around us- people with no roofs over their heads, some paralysed from the neck or waist down, some with no limbs, and with no certainty of their future or their survival. This is a real trial and test of conscience for all those around who have so much while others have so little. We need to learn from what our Prophet (saw) said: “You see the believers as regards their being merciful among themselves and showing love among themselves and being kind, resembling one body, so that if any part of the body is not well then the whole body shares the sleeplessness (insomnia) and fever with it.” (Bukhari) “A Muslim is the brother of another Muslim.”(Bukhari) “Whoever fulfilled the needs of his brother, Allah will fulfill his needs; whoever brought his (Muslim) brother out of a discomfort, Allah will bring him out of the discomforts of the Day of Resurrection.” (Bukhari)

What more guarantees could we need to encourage us to spend, spend, spend… Let us do what Allah commands us in the Quran: “O you who believe! do your duty to Allah, seek the means of approach unto Him and strive with might and main in His cause, that you may prosper.” (5;35) Let us too, seek with the (wealth) which Allah has bestowed on us, the Home of the Hereafter and attain that everlasting success – Paradise about which Allah says: “Gardens under which rivers flow to dwell therein forever and beautiful mansions in gardens of Eden.” (9;72)

When our Prophet (saw) was asked what Paradise was constructed of, he (saw) replied, “A brick of gold and a brick of silver with mortar of strong-scented musk; its pebbles are pearls and rubies and its soil is saffron. Those who enter it will be in affluent circumstances and will not be destitute, they will live for ever and not die, their garments will not wear out, and their youth will not pass away.” (Ahmad, Tirmidhi ) “Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded: that is the supreme achievement.”(Quran 9;111)
What more could we ask for?

 

Tips: keep a box or tin and regularly put in your sadaqa or lillah

Islam is the fastest moving religion

Whatever people may say or think, Islam has the greatest population. 

Indeed, despite what some media have been writing against Muslims and Islam, Islam remains the most popular, the most talked and the most adhered religion. The word Islam has never left anyone indifferent. Just mention the word Islam in a group, everybody will react, either positively or negatively. It does create a reaction. This means that nobody is indifferent to it. And surely, in the years to come, we will witness the conversion of thousands of people to Islam.”Ammaara Uddeen

“The Last Day will not come until Islam has

 entered every single house on the earth.”

 says the prophet [p.b.u.h]

 

 

” When the victory of Allah has come and the conquest,

And you see the people entering into the religion of Allah in multitudes,

Then exalt [Him] with praise of your Lord and ask forgiveness of Him. Indeed, He is ever Accepting of repentance.” Surah An Nasr, Qur’an
