“Islamic” Alcohol and Music


Last Updated on Saturday, 07 June 2014 07:46

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: “There will be people from my Ummah, who will consume alcohol after changing its name, on their heads will be instruments of music and singing girls. Allah Ta‘ala will make the ground swallow them and mutate them into apes and swine.” (Saheeh Ibni Hibbaan #6758)

May Allah Ta‘ala protect us from being amongst those people who will consume what is unlawful and be so bold to re-label the unlawful as lawful. When pleasure and carnal desire becomes the goal, then everything possible will be done so as to enjoy it, even if be the legalising of alcohol and music by calling it “Islamic”. Such persons no longer qualify to be from amongst the human race, thus they will be changed into apes and swine. They are a burden on earth, thus they will be swallowed by the ground.


Thanking People


Last Updated on Monday, 24 February 2014 15:37

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: “The one who does not thank people does not thank Allah.” (Sunan Abi Dawood #4811)

Thanking people is indirectly thanking Allah Ta‘ala. It signifies our acknowledgement and appreciation of the bounties of Allah Ta‘ala. If we fail to thank the people we see and meet, how will we ever become grateful to Allah Ta‘ala, who we cannot see in this world. Thanking people is a stepping stone to becoming a grateful servant of Allah Ta‘ala.


The Best Salaah


Last Updated on Wednesday, 19 February 2014 06:30

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: “The salaah of a woman in her bedroom is more virtuous than her salaah in her entrance hall, and her salaah in her closet is more virtuous than her salaah in her bedroom.” (Sunan Abi Dawood #570)

A Muslim woman’s life and actions are all based on concealment. The overriding trait in her life is modesty and shyness. The women of the past were such that a single instruction of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was sufficient to motivate them to act accordingly. Since they had the desire to act on deen, they performed salaah in their homes in keeping with the spirit of Islam. The women of today read a lot and listen a lot, but there is little desire to practice. Many who do practice, do so in a manner where deen is subjected to their desire, hence the spirit of deen is not fulfilled. Instead it is merely an appearance. Thus we are faced with the modern day women who wrongfully wish to perform salaah with the men at the musjid and at the eid-gah despite all the eminent wrongs that are associated with it, moving completely against the spirit of Islam.


Most Weighty in the Scales

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: “There is nothing more weighty in the scales than excellent character.” (Sunan Abi Dawood #4801)

A person’s character is constantly tested by different people and in different ways. However one always needs to respond by displaying excellent character. In this way one will continuously be earning rewards which will weigh very heavily in one’s favour on the Day of Judgement.


Recipe for Contentment


Last Updated on Tuesday, 01 October 2013 15:24

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: “Look at the one who is lower than you and do not look at the one who is above you.” (Saheeh Muslim #2963)

In our worldly matters, we should keep our gaze on those who have less than us. This will make us thankful for all that we have and we will enjoy contentment in our lives. The moment we look at those who have more than us, we will become ungrateful. Our lives will also be consumed and exhausted in chasing after temporary pleasures and gains.
