Awake Ramadaan 1442


Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:

“O Ali! Do not delay three things: Salaat in its time. Janaazah when it is present. Marriage of a woman when a suitable husband is found.”



Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said that the Dua made between Athaan and Iqaamah is not rejected. It is a time for ready acceptance of Dua. The Maqbooliyat (ready acceptance) is further enhanced if one happens to be fasting.



Hadhrat Ibn Umar (radhiyallahu anhu) narrates:

“Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: 

‘When you see those who abuse my Sahaabah, then say (to them): The la’nat of Allah on your shirk.’ ” (Tirmizi, Mishkaat) 

Commenting on this Hadith, the author Mullah Ali Bin Sultan Muhammad Al-Qaari, says in his Sharah Mirqaat: 

“This implies that their curse (or abuse) rebounds on them. They are the votaries of evil and mischief. On the other hand, the Sahaabah are the people of virtue who are deserving of the mercy and pleasure (of Allah).” 

In another authentic Hadith it is said: 

“In the last of ages will be a community called Raafizah (Shiahs). They will abandon Islam. Therefore kill them, for verily, they are mushrikeen.” 

In Islam the punishment for murtaddeen (renegades) is death. Those who revile the Sahaabah and brand them as munaafiqeen and kaafireen are themselves murtaddeen. 

Another Hadith states: 

“They will relate themselves to the Ahl-e-Bait while in reality they are not of the Ahl-e-Bait.



A Buzrug said: 

“A man who practises seven deeds and refrains from seven deeds, his deeds are futile. These are: 

(1) He professes fear for Allah but does not abstain from sins. 

(2) He hopes for reward from Allah but abstains from virtuous deeds. 

(3) He wishes to do good, but do not resolve to do so. 

(4) He supplicates (makes dua), but abstains from practical effort. 

(5) He recites Istighfaar, but has no regret. 

(6) He externally does good acts, but abstains from moral reformation. 

(7) He makes effort, but lacks ikhlaas (sincerity).”
