Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I would like to share with you a beautiful hadith that talks about seven types of people who will be under the shade of Allah(SWT). We have to put things in persepctive though to understand how lucky and honorable it is to be part of this shade.

The day of judgement for the average person is going to be terrifying due to the fact that all his deeds, good and bad, as small as an atoms weight will be seen. As exemplified in the last two ayats of Surah Zalzalah: “So whoever does an atom’s weight of good will see it, And whoever does an atom’s weight of evil will see it.” (99: 7-8).

The day of judgement is going to be a time in which the sun is scorching the inhabitants of this earth due to it being one mile away from the earth. As exemplified in this hadith.“On the Day of Resurrection, the sun would draw so close to the people that there would be left a distance of only one mile. The people will be submerged in perspiration according to their deeds, some up to their ankles, some up to their knees, some up to the waist and some would have the bridle of perspiration (and, while saying this, the Messenger of Allah  put his hand towards his mouth).” [Muslim]

As you can see it will be a terrifying time because we are being judged on every single action while the sun is scorching us.

However, there are seven types of people who get shade on the day of judgement.

The hadith states,

“There are seven whom Allah will shade in His Shade on the Day when there is no shade except His Shade: a just ruler; a youth who grew up in the worship of Allah, the Mighty and Majestic; a man whose heart is attached to the mosques; two men who love each other for Allah’s sake, meeting for that and parting upon that; a man who is called by a woman of beauty and position [for illegal intercourse], but be says: ‘I fear Allah’; a man who gives in charity and hides it, such that his left hand does not know what his right hand gives in charity; and a man who remembered Allah in private and so his eyes shed tears.” [Al-Bukhaari and Muslim]

Insha’Allah we all strive to be one of these seven people, we ask Allah(SWT) to give us Hidaya(guidance), protection, forgiveness, and 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.

Dear Brother’s and Sisters’,

I would like to share with you this hadith in which the Prophet(sallallahu alayhi wa salam) told about the nearing of the Day of Judgement.  I will only put up the part of the hadith which talks about earthquakes because the full hadith is long and delves into various other signs. I would also like to show you how this sign is mentioned in the Quran.

Abu Hurairah(radiallahu anhu) said, “The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa salam) said, The Hour will not come until the following events have come to pass until . . . earthquakes will increase . . . (Bukhari, Hasan)

Here is an english translation of Surah Al-Zalzalah: “When the earth is shaken with its [final] earthquake. And the earth discharges its burdens. And man says, “What is with it?” – That Day, it will report its news. Because your Lord has commanded it. That Day, the people will depart separated [into categories] to be shown [the result of] their deeds.So whoever does an atom’s weight of good will see it, And whoever does an atom’s weight of evil will see it.” (Quran: 99: 1-8).

Now if you look up the history of earthquakes and the occurrence of earthquakes the results may be a shocking. Many years ago earthquakes rarely happened, and now they are happening with many in one day.

The image below shows the trend of earthquakes from 1973 up until 2006, but the earthquakes have increased even more in 2013 as exemplified by real time data from the United States Geological Survey(This site is listed as a link below).

How can a scripture and a man be able to predict this increase in earth activity 1400 years ago, unless it was divinely inspired.

Insha’Allah, we will all come back to Allah(SWT) and ask for forgiveness, mercy, guidance, protection, and paradise.
