Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I would like to share with you one of the great character traits that the Prophet(SAW) had: Gentleness.

Right now we live in a time where the concept of Islamaphobia and the wrong idea of Islam is spreading like wildfire. It is up to us as Muslims to really start implementing the characteristics and moral principles instructed to us by Allah(SWT) and the Prophet(SAW). Our actions will speak louder than words, and what better actions are the ones none other than the Prophet(SAW).

The gentleness of the Prophet(SAW) just radiated from him. He was always cheerful and gentle and never wanted to cause harm.

The Prophet(SAW) smiled so often and even described it as a charity, and psychologists now a days even tell us that a smile has so many powerful an positive psychological effects. (Look it up yourself. It is truly amazing)

Here are some hadiths talking about the gentleness of the Prophet(SAW):

Abdullaah Ibn Haarith said, ‘I never came across a person who smiled as much as the Prophet(SAW). The Prophet(SAW)  regarded smiling with a brother as an act of charity. (Tirmidhi)

Aisha stated that, ‘The Prophet(SAW) never used foul language and never entertained people with obscene jokes. He was well behaved when he entered the market places. His habit was not to repel evil with mutual evil. He was forgiving and could grant pardon.'(Tirmidhi)

Husain  the grandson of the Prophet(SAW) asked his father, Ali , about the Prophet’s conduct. Ali replied, ‘He was always cheerful, gentle and mild. There was no rigidity or coarseness in his conduct. He was neither a faultfinder nor a boisterous person and he steered away from any kind of futile engagement.’ (Tabarani)

Prophet Muhammad(SAW) smiled so spontaneously that each one of the Companions, as they gathered around him during their visits to his house, thought to be the favorite Companion. Jareer Ibn Abdullah said, ‘I have not seen the Prophet, since I embraced Islam, without a smile on his face. I saw him smiling when he could not see me and he was smiling in my presence.’ (Bukahri)

Insha’Allah we all can incorporate this small thing in our lives and really show the world what Islam truly is. Insha’Allah we ask Allah(SWT) for peace, forgiveness, guidance, protection, and Junnah-al-Firdaus.

Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I would like to share with you the importance of one of the most fundamental concepts of Islam: Salah(Prayer).

Salah is extremely important when it comes to being a true Muslim. It provides a gateway towards spiritual enlightenment, contentedness, and peace.

In the Quran it states, “Guard strictly your (habit of) prayers, especially the Middle Prayer; and stand before Allah in a devout (frame of mind).”(Surah Baqarah, 2:238).

Allah(SWT) commands us to guard strictly to our prayers, and the Prophet(SAW) clarifies the reasoning behind it by stating how it will be the first thing that will be asked of us on the Day of Judgement.

Rasoolullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The first thing the people will be accountable for on the Day of Judgment is prayer, Allah will say to His angels (even though he already knows) : “Look at my servants prayers. Were they complete or not?” If they were complete It will be written as complete. If they were not fully complete Allah will say: “See if my servant has voluntary prayers, If he has them Allah will say: Complete his obligatory prayers shortage with his voluntary prayers.” Then the rest of his deeds will be dealt with in the same manner.” (Reported by Imams Ahmad, Abu Dawood, An-Nisa’i, and Al-Hakim)

Insha’Allah we all turn back to Allah(SWT) and hold tight to our prayers and perform them with true conviction. Do not let this world trap you from something that is a great blessing to have. Insha’Allah we all ask for Allah(SWT) to guide us, protect us, forgive us, and grant us Junnah-al-Firdaus.

Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I would like to share with you a wonderful hadith that tells us how we can recite the entire Quran in less than 3 minutes. Some of you may say that is impossible, but it is not because our beloved Prophet(SAW) has narrated to us a method.

‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radhiallahu anho) narrates that the Prophet Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: The Surah Al-Zilzal is equal to the half of the Holy Qur’an, the Surah Al-Ikhlas is equal to the one third of the Holy Qur’an and the Surah Al-Kafiroon is equal to the one fourth of the Holy Qur’an. (Tirmidhi: 2894)

Now if we do the math: 1/2 + 1/3 + 1/4 = 1.0833333

Technically it is a little more than the entire Quran.

These three surahs are very short and can be easily recited in 3 minutes or less.

Also do not forget that there is extra blessings and reward in just reciting a letter of the Quran:

The Prophet(sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said “Whoever reads a letter from the Book of Allah will receive a hasanah(good deed) from it, and the hasanah is multiplied by ten. I do not say that Alif-Laam-Meem is a letter , rather Alif is a letter, Laam is a letter, and Meem is a letter.” (At-Tirmidhi).

So lets strive to read the entire Quran everyday and Insha’Allah we turn back to Allah(SWT) and ask for forgiveness, guidance, protection, and Junnh-al-Firdaus.

Original Sin is Wrong

Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I would like to start out by saying that I do not want to start any fights or turmoil with one another, but I would like everyone to look deep down inside and question their beliefs to find the truth that everyone is looking for.

That truth is Islam.

The Christian concept of Original Sin has no justice of God and thus cannot be a correct concept. The idea that Adam made a mistake, a “sin”, in which all of his children will inherit this sin, and thus be born sinful is simply terrible due to the fact that someone else’s action is what makes me wrong. God is All-Mighty and All-knowing. In Islam one of the 99 names of Allah(SWT) is Al-Muqsit, meaning The Just. Hypothetically, if one of your friends stole something, a sin, and he/she has a child, is it truly justice that due to the mother/father’s sin the child is going to be sinful. No, not at all. Every person is accountable for his own actions because simply put he or she does these actions. It is simple logic.  Every single person knows inside of themselves that they are different from their parents and different from their parents parents. So it makes no sense to bear a burden that was not our own faults.

If you can understand this, then you can also see the beauty in Islam and its guiding principles.

In the Quran it states, “That no burdened person(with sins) shall bear the burden(sins) of another. And that man can have nothing but what he does(good or bad), And that his deeds will be seen. (Surah Najm- 53:38-40).

It also states, “Whoever is guided is only guided for [the benefit of] his soul. And whoever errs only errs against it. And no bearer of burdens will bear the burden of another. And never would We punish until We sent a messenger.” (Surah Isra- 17:15).

The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said, “Each child is born in a state of “Fitrah”, then his parents make him a Jew, Christian or a Zoroastrian, the way an animal gives birth to a normal offspring. Have you noticed any that were born mutilated?” (Collected by Bukhari and Muslim).

Always remember that Allah(SWT) is the All Merciful and loves it when man turns back to him for repentance. Please see some of my other posts on how Allah(SWT) is so merciful that it is unfathomable how merciful He is.

Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I would like to say that if you have done terrible things in your life that you should be patient and turn to Allah(SWT) because it is unfathomable how merciful Allah(SWT) is.  Below are two hadiths that explain the mercy of Allah(SWT).

Abu Huraira (radi allahu anhu) reported: I heard Allah’s Messenger (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) as saying: Allah created mercy in one hundred parts and He retained with Him ninety-nine parts, and He has sent down upon the earth one part, and it is because of this one part that there is mutual love among the creation so much so that the animal lifts up its hoof from its young, one, fearing that it might harm it.  (Muslim)

Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri (radi allahu anhu): The Prophet(sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said, “Amongst the men of Bani Israel there was a man who had murdered ninety-nine persons. Then he set out asking (whether his repentance could be accepted or not). He came upon a monk and asked him if his repentance could be accepted. The monk replied in the negative and so the man killed him. He kept on asking till a man advised to go to such and such village.(So he left for it) but death overtook him on the way. While dying, he turned his chest towards that village (where he had hoped his repentance would be accepted), and so the angels of mercy and the angels of punishment quarreled amongst themselves regarding him. Allah ordered the village (towards which he was going) to come closer to him, and ordered the village (whence he had come), to go far away, and then He ordered the angels to measure the distances between his body and the two villages. So he was found to be one span closer to the village (he was going to). So he was forgiven.” (Bukari)

Now imagine how merciful and forgiving Allah(SWT) is. A man killed 100 people and he pushed away and brought closer certain towns to fill the requirements for this man to be forgiving. Allah(SWT) wants to forgive mankind. He wants to send mankind to paradise. That’s why he divided his mercy into 100 parts, in which he held 99 for himself to be merciful for mankind. This why as we must always turn back to Allah(SWT) for repentance, forgiveness, guidance, and strength.

Quran: “Say, “O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah . Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful.”” (Surah Az-Zumar, 39:53).

Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

The Quran was a series of revaluations to the Prophet(sallallahu alayhi wasallam) for a period of 23 years. The Quran was not written down until after the Prophet(sallallahu alayhi wasallam) died. All the revelations given to the Prophet(sallallahu alayhi wasallam) was memorized by various people and then compiled over time.

These are the words of God, Allah(SWT), because after 1400 years we have the technology to show the mathematical miracles and blessings of the Quran through numerology, algorithms, and science.

Here are only a couple of examples:

1.)  The arabic word for day is “yawm” and it is mentioned exactly 365 times.

2.) The words “tongue” and “sermon” are both repeated 25 times.

3.) The words “trouble” and “peace” are both repeated 13 times in the Qur’an.

4.) The words “man” and “woman” are also employed equally: 23 times.

5.) The words “benefit” and “corrupt” both appear 50 times.

6.) The words “paradise” and “hell” are each repeated 77 times.

7.) The statement  “seven heavens”  and “The creation of the heavens” is repeated seven times.

Now tell me how can a person for 1400 years ago who received these messages for 23 years and did not record any of it, but people memorized them, can possibly keep track of the number of times he wrote this. To maintain a life,  while preaching, working, being married, going into battles, and to be part of life would make the possibility of this occurrence impossible. This is the work of Allah(SWT).

Besides repeated words there are many scientific things found out from the Quran.

As an example the word land is mentioned 13 times and the word sea is mentioned 32 times. Now if we take these three equations:

13+32 = 45   13/45 = .288 and 32/45=.711

We will get the actual percentage of the earth land to sea ratio. Look up the ratios. The earth is 71% sea and 28% land.

Now there are so much more mathematical miracles and blessings from the Quran, but I just did not list them. Another example is to look up how the Quran calculates the speed of light. 

It is up to you guys as the readers to see and open your minds and hearts to the beauties and miracles of the Quran.

Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I am not writing this to start up fights and I ask Allah(SWT) to guide me. I hope to see people to be open minded and learn for themselves the truth.

I want to show how the trinity does not exist and how Jesus in the Bible does not even claim to be God, but claims to be a prophet of God.

First off, find me one verse in the Bible that talks about the trinity. You cannot because there is nothing mentioned in the Bible about the trinity unless you have a Bible with later insertions that have been falsified because as all Christians know that due to the varying sects there are different Bible’s, with different translation. However, they have failed to see that the Quran, no matter the varying sects, is still in its original form.

Secondly, Jesus in the Bible performs human attributes such as praying to God. Two examples are:

In Matthew 14:23 “After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. Later that night, he was there alone”

In Luke 22:41 “He withdrew about a stone’s throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed

Praying and kneeling down for worship are human attributes. The question would arise, if he is God then why would he be praying to himself.

Thirdly, in the Bible Jesus even states that the people who will worship me are in the wrong direction.

In Matthew 15:9 “They worship me in vain; their teachings are merely human rules.”

I could give you a long list of reasons why the trinity is false and Jesus is not God, but I will allow some former preachers and ministers to explain the rest. Insha’Allah we all open up our eyes and hearts to guide us towards Allah(SWT) the one and only God.

 

Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I would like to tell everyone that every single person has his past. Every single person has done something stupid in their lives. All one must do is strengthen their faith and hope in Allah (SWT) because Allah(SWT) is Ar-Rahim, the all merciful, Ar-Gaffar, the forgiver, and Al-Wadud, the loving one.

I would like to share with you two hadiths about how forgiving and merciful Allah(SWT) is:

Narrated by Abu Huraira(radiyallahu anhu) : The Prophet(sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said, “While a dog was going round a well and was about to die of thirst, an Israeli prostitute saw it and took off her shoe and watered it. So Allah forgave her because of that good deed.” (Volume 4, Book 56, Number 673, Bukhari)

Narrated by Abu Sa’id(radiyallahu anhu): The Prophet(sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said, “Amongst the people preceding your age, there was a man whom Allah had given a lot of money. While he was in his death-bed, he called his sons and said, ‘What type of father have I been to you? They replied, ‘You have been a good father.’ He said, ‘I have never done a single good deed; so when I die, burn me, crush my body, and scatter the resulting ashes on a windy day.’ His sons did accordingly, but Allah gathered his particles and asked (him), ‘What made you do so?’ He replied, “Fear of you.’ So Allah bestowed His Mercy upon him. (forgave him).” (Volume 4, Book 56, Number 684, Bukhari)

Now can you even imagine the forgiving nature of Allah(SWT). It is incomparable. Allah(SWT) forgave a prostitute for just giving a dying dog water. Also Allah(SWT) bestowed His mercy upon a man who claims to have not done any good deeds. Who on this earth can be that forgiving. No one at all.

So I would like to leave off by saying no matter what your past is, you should push forward, go to Allah(SWT), and repent to him with sincerity because Allah(SWT) is At-Tawwab, the granter and accepter of repentance.
