اک پنچھی گھائل ہو جائے ۔۔۔

Asslam u Alaikum

Yesterday, I talked to my bestie Bushes , and she send me this poetry and my heart was  crying,

کچھ پنچھی جھنڈ میں اڑتے ہوں
اور رستہ بھی کچھ مشکل ہو

کچھ دور افق پر منزل ہو
اک پنچھی گھائل ہو جاۓ

اور بے دم ہو کر گر جاۓ
تو رشتے ناتے پیارے سب

کب اس کی خاطر رکتے ہیں؟
اس دنیا کی ہے ریت یہی

جو اڑتے رہو تو ساتھ بہت
جو رک جاؤ تو تنہا ہو

We miss you yar , when it was our last day of the term at madrassa we went to that classroom where four of us used to study when we took admission , and those days are just un forgettable. I remember the game we used to play LOL I mean searching places on the world map, eating chocolate chip cookies, OMG.

How strange is this we never thought that in furure you won’t be accompanying us at madrassa. Suddenly, you got ill and left madrassa.I really feel broken inside..you used to make us laugh… I learnt respect of book and pen from you. 

I want to say something if you can’t come to madrassa it doesn’t mean you can’t build a relationship with Allah SWT.. You can have a more stronger relation with Him than us .. You know Allah SWT reward His Ibaad for every small pain they bear and what about the pain that you bear in the path of Allah SWT.

But this is true no one cares in this world for others .. Life just goes on, People don’t stop for a person ,they come and go.. still there is the One who will always be with you in every situation good or bad…  

He is Allah SWT, 

you will always be in our prayers.

Stay strong…

At last I just want to say that when we are having something in our hand we don’t care ..we don’t give thanks to Allah for His countless blessings, but when these blessings go away we realize their importance…

Valentine’s Day : Why is Haraam ?

Valentine’s Day : Why is Haraam ?

السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته 

We had a lecture at our Madrassa about celebrating different days like Birthday, New Year day, Anniversaries, Mother’s day, Father’s day, Valentine’s day , April Fool, Black Friday and so on.

I thought I should write something about Valentine’s day, believe me I am feeling so un comfortable even writing this name.

At the time of Sahaba  رضى الله عنهم Islamic teachings have been defined so clearly and it was easier to differentiate between right and wrong ( حق و باطل) because this period was nearest to Nabi Pak’s صلى الله عليه و سلم period. But now in today’s situation everything is mixed up for a common Muslim , so it is very difficult to act upon Deen. We consider a thing as a part of deen but when you study in depth you get to know that it was not. We have to be very careful now a days.

Let’s come towards celebrating Valentine’s day and other such days,  now I will discuss reasons for non celebration.

OUR DEEN IS KAAMIL :

 The foremost reason of prohibition of such days  in Islam is becsuse Our Nabi Pak صلى الله عليه و سلم and Sahaba Karam رضى الله عنهم have not celebraated such events , Naouzubillah if we celebrate them it means we thing Our deen was not complet,Our Deen is a complete code of life, it does not need any additions or subtractions.

In Quran Allah SWT has said in Surah Maidah :

(حُرِّمَتْ عَلَيْكُمُ الْمَيْتَةُ وَالدَّمُ وَلَحْمُ الْخِنْزِيرِ وَمَا أُهِلَّ لِغَيْرِ اللَّهِ بِهِ وَالْمُنْخَنِقَةُ وَالْمَوْقُوذَةُ وَالْمُتَرَدِّيَةُ وَالنَّطِيحَةُ وَمَا أَكَلَ السَّبُعُ إِلَّا مَا ذَكَّيْتُمْ وَمَا ذُبِحَ عَلَى النُّصُبِ وَأَنْ تَسْتَقْسِمُوا بِالْأَزْلَامِ ۚ ذَٰلِكُمْ فِسْقٌ ۗ الْيَوْمَ يَئِسَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا مِنْ دِينِكُمْ فَلَا تَخْشَوْهُمْ وَاخْشَوْنِ ۚ الْيَوْمَ أَكْمَلْتُ لَكُمْ دِينَكُمْ وَأَتْمَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعْمَتِي وَرَضِيتُ لَكُمُ الْإِسْلَامَ دِينًا ۚ فَمَنِ اضْطُرَّ فِي مَخْمَصَةٍ غَيْرَ مُتَجَانِفٍ لِإِثْمٍ ۙ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ غَفُورٌ رَحِيمٌ)

[Surat Al-Ma’idah 3]

Prohibited to you are dead animals, blood, the flesh of swine, and that which has been dedicated to other than Allah , and [those animals] killed by strangling or by a violent blow or by a head-long fall or by the goring of horns, and those from which a wild animal has eaten, except what you [are able to] slaughter [before its death], and those which are sacrificed on stone altars, and [prohibited is] that you seek decision through divining arrows. That is grave disobedience. This day those who disbelieve have despaired of [defeating] your religion; so fear them not, but fear Me. This day I have perfected for you your religion and completed My favor upon you and have approved for you Islam as religion. But whoever is forced by severe hunger with no inclination to sin – then indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.

 

 ISLAM -DEEN OF MODESTY :

Secondly It is purely celebrated to fulfill desires of your Nafs, you just satisfy your Nafs by saying This is my pure Love and this and that. It spreads Vulgarity , Haya is departing away from our youth.This is a tactic to stray the youth from Straight path So that instead of focussing on Ummah issues they indulge themselves in Forbidden love, This is from Shaitaan. 

Islam is a deen of Taharah (طهارة). Islam teaches Muslim men and women to lower their gaze.  

(قُلْ لِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ يَغُضُّوا مِنْ أَبْصَارِهِمْ وَيَحْفَظُوا فُرُوجَهُمْ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ أَزْكَىٰ لَهُمْ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ خَبِيرٌ بِمَا يَصْنَعُونَ)

[Surat An-Nur 30]

So how can a Muslim disobey the one who loves him more than  seventy mothers. Islam teaches us a modest way of living. In Islam we have to save our love for our spouses, this is the halal and blessed kind of love.
CELEBRATING VALENTINE’S DAY LEADS TO OTHER HARAAMS :

It results in other haraam things like music,singing, wasting time and money, extravagance , unveiling, free mixing of men and women.We cannot escape the reality by thinking we are not crossing limits or we are just wearing red not doing anything haraam, imitating kuffar is not allowed.

A women is treated as a pearl in Islam so sacred and pure not like they are treated in other cultures. Just like a pearl is hidden in its shell ,in Islam women are hidden and protected by hijab and haya.

WHOEVER IMMITATES A PEOPLE IS ONE OF THEM :

Hazrat Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم said :

Whoever immitates a people is one of them  (Abu Dawood )

So we should not immitate others in any aspect , we have to follow Islamic teachings, we should enter Islam completely. 

This kind of love leads to spread of immorality and extra marital relationships which are strongly condemned in Islam. 

Allah knows best .

Beleive me if we stick to Islamic teachings , we will succeed in both duniya and Aakhiraah. 

May Allah SWT keep us stead fast on our deen.

Assalm u Alaikum wrwb.

Near Allah only Islam is the Deen :

السلام عليكم و رحمةالله و بركاته

Near Allah only Islam is the deen

Deen is the way of living life , Allah SWT has chosen Islam for us.Anyone who comes up with any other way than Islam won’t be acceptable near Allah SWT. As a result he will fail in akhiraah.

In persian Islam means to bow down . There are some people whenever you tell them any hukam of Islam they start asking reasons why Allah SWT ordered like that but it should be like that. At some places Islam has Closed down the doors of How? and Why? , The thing is a person who believes in Allah SWT and His commandments he won’t ask for reasons, Our Ustadh Saab gave the answer in one of his lectures he said :Allah SWT is our creator , so we  can’t understand Hikmah (reason) behind each and every hukam in Islam, Some things are beyond our intellect. You know Love don’t asks for reasons, Isn’t it enough that Allah SWT is saying something to us , what further reasons we want to obey any hukam.

We all are servants of Allah SWT , we should obey each and every commandment of Islam just by keeping in mind this is from our Rabb Allah SWT.When we search for reasons sometimes we may deviate from right path (Sirat e Mustaqeem) .

ان الدين عند الله اسلام 

  • We should not be running after  our wishes or Nafs
  • We should say Ya Allah ! I am your servant you are my  Rabb you are not dependant on anyone for doing anything.

Let us take an example when there is fog on roads, Government closes the roads. We may think they are doing wrong by creating difficulties for us. But Govt authorities know what you don’t know !    Same is the case with Islamic Ahkamaat We just have to follow them because In every hukam there is hikmah and protection for us, and our Naqis Aqal cannot understand these hikmats.

Our All strives in this life should be to become  good Muslims. Our fight is with Nafs and Shaitan.

I have spent life in School, college and university and now at Madrassa, it is a totally different experience, Studying deen is the most beautiful thing one can do in his life. This is just like a gift to me, a surprise gift. You don’t have to do much, just a bit of talab for ilm e deen, then see Allah SWT will come running towards you, just a small step towards Him can take you to a totally different world,When you start building your relation with Allah SWT no one will matter for you, you will just think of making Allah SWT happy. Just make dua for yourselves, Ask Allah SWT both deen and duniya.

ربنا اتنا فى الدنيا حسنة و في الآخرة حسنة

In today’s time it has become very difficult to hold on to your deen, so there is a dua we should read it after every Salah so that Allah SWT show us Haqq and Baatil.

This was the excerpt of a lecture given at our Madrassa by Ustadh Ahmad Usman Sahab.

The “AMAZING QURAN” : 

​(وَإِذْ قَالَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ رَبِّ أَرِنِي كَيْفَ تُحْيِي الْمَوْتَىٰ ۖ قَالَ أَوَلَمْ تُؤْمِنْ ۖ قَالَ بَلَىٰ وَلَٰكِنْ لِيَطْمَئِنَّ قَلْبِي ۖ قَالَ فَخُذْ أَرْبَعَةً مِنَ الطَّيْرِ فَصُرْهُنَّ إِلَيْكَ ثُمَّ اجْعَلْ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ جَبَلٍ مِنْهُنَّ جُزْءًا ثُمَّ ادْعُهُنَّ يَأْتِينَكَ سَعْيًا ۚ وَاعْلَمْ أَنَّ اللَّهَ عَزِيزٌ حَكِيمٌ)

[Surat Al-Baqarah 260]

السلام علیکم

We studied about Hazrat Ibrahim AS incident in Tafsir of above ayyah, when he asked Allah SWT to show how He will make the dead alive, Allah SWT asked him to take 4 birds and place their meat  on different mountains then call them they will come running towards you.At the end of Ayyah Allah SWT said

واعلم ان الله عزيز حكيم 

My teacher explained that Mufasireen have said Allah SWT has defined Himself as Azeez here because he made those died birds come alive and Hakeem because He does not show such things to everyone due to Hikmah, and hikmah is if He SWT do this there will be no purpose of life there will be no test ….

Secondly she explained about :

ياتينك سعيا 

They will come towards you running

Here they come running but birds normally fly, this is because if they come flying in the sky there was fear that they may get mixed or changed with other birds.

(مَثَلُ الَّذِينَ يُنْفِقُونَ أَمْوَالَهُمْ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ كَمَثَلِ حَبَّةٍ أَنْبَتَتْ سَبْعَ سَنَابِلَ فِي كُلِّ سُنْبُلَةٍ مِائَةُ حَبَّةٍ ۗ وَاللَّهُ يُضَاعِفُ لِمَنْ يَشَاءُ ۗ وَاللَّهُ وَاسِعٌ عَلِيمٌ)

[Surat Al-Baqarah 261]

Then in Ayyah 261 Allah SWT is telling about Fazeelat of people who spend wealth in the path of Allah SWT, 

Why He is telling this just after the previous Waqia of Ibrahim AS?

Because whoever has firm Faith in life after death Spending in the path of Allah wont be difficult for him,

For some people Ajer becomes Multiplied by more than 700 times due to Sincerity (Ikhlas e Niyyat)

At the end of this Ayyah Allah says

 والله واسع عليم

He is واسع because He can multiply Ajer as many times as He wants …

He is عليم because He is aware of our Niyyats.

Allah SWT helps you in strange ways …

Assalam u Alaikum wrwb,

Today, I want to share something, I was studying in an institute where I was studying Cost and Management accounting, I met my fellows and they suggested me to continue by taking Distance Learning Program and I started thinking on this option and on the very next day in Tafsir class we studied Ayaahs about usury (Ribaa)  in Surah Baqraa, And. I got my answer becsuse in Accounting all calculations include interest. When you join any firm it is just impossible to avoid usury.

After Shirk biggest warning is given for a person using ribaah in his dealings, it is as if he announces to fight with Allah SWT and Nabi صلى الله عليه وسلم , May Allah SWT save us.

Allah SWT says in Quran : 

الَّذِينَ يَأْكُلُونَ الرِّبَا لَا يَقُومُونَ إِلَّا كَمَا يَقُومُ الَّذِي يَتَخبَّطُهُ الشَّيْطَانُ مِنَ الْمَسِّ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ بِأَنَّهُمْ قَالُوا إِنَّمَا الْبَيْعُ مِثْلُ الرِّبَا ۗ وَأَحَلَّ اللَّهُ الْبَيْعَ وَحَرَّمَ الرِّبَا ۚ فَمَنْ جَاءَهُ مَوْعِظَةٌ مِنْ رَبِّهِ فَانْتَهَىٰ فَلَهُ مَا سَلَفَ وَأَمْرُهُ إِلَى اللَّهِ ۖ وَمَنْ عَادَ فَأُولَٰئِكَ أَصْحَابُ النَّارِ ۖ هُمْ فِيهَا خَالِدُونَ

[Surat Al-Baqarah 275]

Those who consume interest cannot stand [on the Day of Resurrection] except as one stands who is being beaten by Satan into insanity. That is because they say, “Trade is [just] like interest.” But Allah has permitted trade and has forbidden interest. So whoever has received an admonition from his Lord and desists may have what is past, and his affair rests with Allah . But whoever returns to [dealing in interest or usury] – those are the companions of the Fire; they will abide eternally therein.

My life was so miserable before , it is a blessing of Allah SWT that He has blessed me with this Ilm, I am neither an alim nor a very pious person but I amhave trying on His path.

We are never been told what is the real purpose of life even in Muslim families. We are forgetting our islamic values as we are going away from our Prophet Hazrat Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم.

I just want to share how I came to this path, I have seen university life, job ennvironment and now Alhamdulillah Islamic Studies environment, really Sakoon of Qalb is here, with every passing day you feel closer to Allah SWT.

InshaAllah you will benefit from my posts.I just pray may Allah SWT make me a source of someone’s hidayah.

I will be sharing my lectures, Ahadith , Tafsir of some selected verses. Other Islamic things that looks new to me will also be shared.
