Why are there so many sects among Muslims?

When all the Muslim follow one and the same Qur’an then why are there so many sects and different schools of thoughts among Muslims?

WHY ARE MUSLIMS DIVIDED INTO SECTS (DIFFERENT SCHOOLS OF THOUGHT) Sects of Islam

1. Muslims should be united

It is a fact that Muslims today, are divided amongst themselves. The tragedy is that such divisions are not endorsed by Islam at all. Islam believes in fostering unity amongst its followers.

The Glorious Qur’an says:

sects of islam

“And hold fast,

All together, by the rope

Which Allah (stretches out for you),

and be not divided among yourselves;”

[Al-Qur’an 3:103]

Which is the rope of Allah that is being referred to in this verse? It is the Glorious Qur’an. The Glorious Qur’an is the rope of Allah which all Muslims should hold fast together. There is double emphasis in this verse. Besides saying ‘hold fast all together’ it also says, ‘be not divided’.

Qur’an further says,

“Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger”

[Al-Qur’an 4:59]

All the Muslim should follow the Qur’an and authentic Ahadith and be not divided among themselves.

2. It is prohibited to make sects and divisions in Islam (Sects of Islam)

The Glorious Qur’an says:

“As for those who divide
Their religion and break up
Into sects, thou hast
No part in them in the least:
Their affair is with Allah:
He will in the end
Tell them the truth
Of all that they did.”

[Al-Qur’an 6:159]

In this verse Allah (swt) says that one should disassociate oneself from those who divide their religion and break it up into sects.

sects of islam
Sects of Islam

But when one asks a Muslim, “who are you?”, the common answer is either ‘I am a Sunni, or ‘I am a Shia’. Some call themselves Hanafi, or Shafi or Maliki or Humbali. Some say ‘I am a Deobandi’, while some others say ‘I am a Barelvi’.

3. Our Prophet was a Muslim (Sects of Islam)

One may ask such Muslims, “Who was our beloved prophet (pbuh)? Was he a Hanafi or a Shafi, or a Humbali or a Maliki?” No! He was a Muslim, like all the other prophets and messengers of Allah before him.

It is mentioned in chapter 3 verse 52 of Al-Qur’an that Jesus (pbuh) was a Muslim.

Further, in chapter 3 verse 67, Al-Qur’an says that Ibrahim (pbuh) was not a Jew or a Christian but was a Muslim.

4. Qur’an says call yourselves Muslim

a. If anyone poses a Muslim the question who are you, he should say “I am a MUSLIM, not a Hanafi or a Shafi”.

Surah Fussilat chapter 41 verse 33 says:

sects of islam
Sects of Islam

“Who is better in speech

Than one who calls (men)

To Allah, works righteousness,

And says, ‘I am of those

Who bow in Islam (Muslim)?’ “

[Al-Qur’an 41:33]

The Qur’an says “Say I am of those who bow in Islam“. In other words, say, “I am a Muslim”.

b. The Prophet (pbuh) dictated letters to non-Muslim kings and rulers inviting them to accept Islam. In these letters he mentioned the verse of the Qur’an from Surah Ali Imran chapter 3 verse 64:

Say ye: “Bear witness

That we (at least)

Are Muslims (bowing

To Allah’s Will).”

[Al-Qur’an 3:64]

5. Respect all the Great Scholars of Islam

We must respect all the great scholars of Islam, including the four Imaams, Imam Abu Hanifa, Imam Shafi, Imam Humbal and Imam Malik (may Allah be pleased with them all). They were great scholars and may Allah reward them for their research and hardwork. One can have no objection if someone agrees with the views and research of Imam Abu Hanifa or Imam Shafi, etc. But when posed a question, ‘who are you?’, the reply should only be ‘I am a Muslim’.

Some may argue by quoting the hadith of our beloved Prophet from Sunan Abu Dawood Hadith No. 4579. In this hadith the prophet (pbuh) is reported to have said, “My community will be split up into seventy-three sects.”

This hadith reports that the prophet predicted the emergence of seventy-three sects.

Sects of Islam

He did not say that Muslims should be active in dividing themselves into sects. The Glorious Qur’an commands us not to create sects. Those who follow the teachings of the Qur’an and Sahih Hadith, and do not create sects are the people who are on the true path.

According to Tirmidhi Hadith No. 171, the prophet (pbuh) is reported to have said, “My Ummah will be fragmented into seventy-three sects, and all of them will be in Hell fire except one sect.” The companions asked Allah’s messenger which group that would be. Where upon he replied, “It is the one to which I and my companions belong.”

The Glorious Qur’an mentions in several verses, “Obey Allah and obey His Messenger”.

A true Muslim should only follow the Glorious Qur’an and the Sahih Hadith. He can agree with the views of any scholar as long as they conform to the teachings of the Qur’an and Sahih Hadith. If such views go against the Word of Allah, or the Sunnah of His Prophet, then they carry no weight, regardless of how learned the scholar might be.

If only all Muslims read the Qur’an with understanding and adhere to Sahih Hadith, Inshallah most of these differences would be solved and we could be one united Muslim Ummah.

5 Things To Do On Laylatul Qadr

5 things to do on Laylatul Qadr (Night of Power)

So valuable is this Night of Qadr that the Quran devotes a special surah to it “Lailatul Qadr (night of power) is better than a thousand months” [97:3]

This one night surpasses the value of 30,000 nights. The most authentic account of the occurrence of the Night indicates that it can occur on any one of the last ten, odd numbered nights of Ramadan, 21, 23, 25, 27, 29.

night of power

We should strive to stay up at least on the odd numbered nights of the last ten days. If we can’t manage that then let us pray at least on the 27th night. If one prays on all of the last odd numbered nights then there is more chance that one may have caught this most powerful night and the reward is of over 83 YEARS OF WORSHIP! Subhanallah! Most will not even live upto that age!

It is a night that we CANNOT miss out on so here is how we can maximise this blessed night (night of power):

1. Recite the Qur’an abundantly

Az-Zuhri used to say upon the coming of Ramadan, “It is only about reciting the Qur’an and feeding the poor.”

Abdur-Raziq said, “When Ramadan came, Sufyan Ath-Thawri would give up all acts of (voluntary) worship and devote himself to the recitation of the Qur’an.”

Laylatul Qadr (night of power) is the night the Qur’an was revealed so we should spend much of the night reciting it for we will gain 700 hasanah or more by reciting each letter!

2. Strive to gain forgiveness

One should strive and do their utmost to gain the mercy of Allah especially in the odd numbered nights of the last ten days. If one leaves Ramadan without gaining the mercy of Allah then surely they are the most unfortunate ones and are the biggest losers in this world and the next.

The main Dua for Laylatul Qadr (Night of power) is the following:

Aisha (Ra) said: “I asked the Messenger of Allah: ‘O Messenger of Allah, if I know what night is the night of Qadr, what should I say during it?’ He said: ‘Say: O Allah, You are pardoning and You love to pardon, so pardon me.’ 
“Allahumma innaka ‘afuwwun tuhibbul ‘afwa fa’fu ‘annee” (Ahmad, Ibn Majah, and Tirmidhi).

Gaining forgiveness on laylatul Qadr (night of power)
night of power

Abu Huraira narrated that the Messenger said: “Whoever stands (in prayer) in Laylatul Qadr (night of power) while nourishing his faith with self-evaluation, expecting reward from Allah, will have all of his previous sins forgiven.” (Bukhari and Muslim).

We should sincerely repent for past and present sins with the intention of not repeating them again and ask of Allah Ta’aala to help us prevent ourselves from doing them again and ask Allah to perfect our characters and to help us improve ourselves in everyway possible.

3. Do much Superogatory Prayers (Nafil)

Rabi’ah ibn Malik al-Aslami reported that the Prophet sallallahu alehi wasallam said: “Ask (anything).” Rabi’ah said: “I ask of you to be your companion in paradise.” The Prophet said: “Or anything else?” Rabi’ah said: “That is it.” The Prophet sallallahu alehi wasallam said to him: “Then help me by making many prostrations (i.e., supererogatory prayers).” (Muslim)

The Prophet peace be upon him said: “Whoever draws near to Allaah during it (Ramadaan) with a single characteristic from the characteristics of (voluntary) goodness, he is like whoever performs an obligatory act in other times. And whoever performs an obligatory act during it, he is like whoever performed seventy obligatory acts in other times.” – Sahih Ibn Khuzaymah, no. 1887.

night of power

In this most blessed month of Ramadhan all good deeds are multiplied by 70 or more. Every Nafil one prays one will gain the reward of a Fard Salaah and every Fard Salah is the reward of 70 Fard salaah. Subhanallah what other time of the year is this possible? NONE! So let us make the best of these precious seconds and pray as many Nafil prayers as is possible!

Here are some Nafil prayers we can pray on Laylatul Qadr (Night of Power):

1. Two Rakat after performing Wudu (Ablution)

Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said to Bilal (may Allah be pleased with him): “Tell me about the best of your deeds (i.e. one which you deem the most rewarding) since your embracing Islam because I heard your footsteps in front of me in Paradise.” Bilal (may Allah be pleased with him) replied: “I do not consider any act of mine more rewarding than that whenever I make ablution at any time of night or day, I perform Prayer for as much as was destined for me to do.” (Reported by Al-Bukhari and Muslim)”

2. Tahajjud

Imam Abu Sa’id al-Khadimi said,

“There is scholarly consensus (ijma`) that among the best of virtuous acts is the night vigil prayer.” [al-Bariqa al-Mahmudiyya Sharh al-Tariqa al-Muhammadiyya]

The scholars derived the following in regards to Tahajjud from the Qur’an and prophetic hadiths:

1. The minimal night vigil prayer is 2 rakats. [Hindiyya, quoting Fath al-Qadir]

2. Its optimal recommended amount is 8 rakats, because this was the general practice of the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace be upon him, his family, and companions). [Hindiyya, quoting Fath al-Qadir]

3. Lengthier recitation is superior to a larger number of rakats prayed. [Durr al-Mukhtar, Radd al-Muhtar]

4. It is recommended to start the night vigil with two short rakats, because of the hadith of Abu Hurayra that the Prophet Muhammad (Allah bless him and give him peace) said, “It you get up for night prayer, start with two short rakats.” [Muslim, Ahmad, Abu Dawud]

Ibn Mas`ud (Allah be pleased with him) was asked, “I cannot pray at night.” He said, “Your sins have prevented you.”


4. Increase in Dhikr (Rememberance of Allah)

We should glorify Allah night and day, especially in the last odd nights.

Here are some easy and very beneficial Dhikr and glorification we can do throughout the last ten odd nights:

1. Allahumma innaka ‘afuwwun tuhibbul ‘afwa fa’fu ‘annee

2. SubhanAllah

3. Alhamdulillah

4. Allahu Akbar

5. Laa ilaha ilallah

6. LA HAWLA WA LA QUWWATA ILLA BILLAH

7. Asthaghfirullah

8. SUB-HAN’ALLAH HIL AZEEM WA BI-HAM’DIHI,

9. Subhāna-llāhi, wa-l-hamdu li-llāhi, wa lā ilāha illā-llāhu, wa-llāhu akbar. Wa lā hawla wa lā quwwata illā bi-llāhi-l-aliyyi-l-azīm

10. Lā ilāha illā-llāhu waḥdahu lā sharīka lahu lahu-l-mulku wa lahu-l-ḥamdu yuhyi wa yumītu wa huwa ḥayyu-llā yamūtu abadan abada, ḏū-l-jalāli wa-l-ikrām, biyadihi-l-khayr, wa huwa alā kulli Shay-in qadīr

Or the shortened version:

11. Laa ilaaha illal-laahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu, lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamdu wa huwa ‘alaa kulli shay-in qadeer

One can also recite the durood that one recites in one’s Salaah or a Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallim


5. Make much dua in Laylatul Qadr (Night of power)

We should be very busy in Dua as much as we can especially in the last 10 odd numbered.

Allah Almighty says in the Qur’an:

“When my servants ask you concerning me, (tell them) I am indeed close (to them). I listen to the prayer of every suppliant when he calls on me.” [2:186]

The place of duaa is so high to Allah, that the Prophet(Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallim) had said: “Nothing is more honourable to Allah the Most High than du`a.” [Sahih al-Jami` no.5268].

Almighty Allah also said: “The most excellent worship is du`a.” [Sahih Al-Jami` no. 1133]

Therefore let us devote much of the night of Qadr in dua asking of Allah for his mercy and forgiveness for all of our past sins and making firm intentions to Allah that we will change for the better and strive to become closer to him as well as make our deen a FULL part of our lives and not just a little part of our life as Allah says:

Allah tells us In the Qur’an to enter fully into our deen and not partly:

O believers enter into Islam completely and do not follow the footsteps of Shaitan, surely he is your clear-cut enemy…. (Surah Al-Baqara, Ayah 208-210)

So then will we not make Islam a FULL part of our lives? This is our best opportunity and if we don’t take it and death comes to us then surely we will regret it for ETERNITY!

And Allah knows best in all matters.

Powerful Tips for the Last 10 Nights of Ramadhaan

Powerful Tips for the Last 10 Nights

1. Do not let your ‘performance’ until now affect your last 10 days.

The moment of forgiveness could be today or anytime in the coming days! It is not all lost! If you sincerely wish it could have been better – Chin up and get ready to make it your best yet! Start with a positive, sincere intention! (Laylatul Qadr)

2. Read the Tafseer of Surah al-Qadr

Today, take a little time to read the Tafseer of Surah al-Qadr to understand what actually happens this night! You will feel its power & greatness so much more!

3. Do not wait for the 27th Night to give it your “all”.

The entire last 10 days should be your target. Stay up each night! Would you want to miss Laylatul Qadr even “by chance”?

laylatul qadr

4. Do not fall into any innovations/celebrations any masjid or culture might try to promote.

Follow the Sunnah! The Prophet (sallAllahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) guided us simply: “Whoever stays up and prays on Laylatul Qadr out of faith and in the hope of reward, his previous sins will be forgiven.”

5. Memorize and keep asking the dua’ taught by Rasoolallah (sallAllahu ‘alaihi wa sallam):

Allaahumma innaka ‘afuwwun tuhibb al-‘afwa fa’affu ‘anni (O Allaah, You are forgiving and You love forgiveness, so forgive me).

6. Prepare a short dua’ list.

Remember this is as awesome as it ever gets for a servant of Allah! The Night of Qadr, of Destiny! Consciously pick each and everything you crucially wish for in this dunya, in your deen, family, and in your aakhirah! Don’t forget to include the brothers and sisters around the world who are suffering and in grief!

7. Take brief naps during the day, if possible.

Keep your stomach light and sleep as soon as you have prayed ‘isha. Do not delay! After a brief nap, refresh yourself and get. ready for worship.

8. Don’t neglect your family!

laylatul qadr

Rasoolullah made it a point to wake up his wives throughout these nights! And yes, your children are not too young to stay up some part of the night – if they can be allowed to play video games or watch TV, they can be inspired to be up atleast for sometime! Prepare them, make them excited, plan some activities for them to do!

9. Look the Part:

The way we dress and prepare, has a big effect on our psychology. Wear your best, perfume yourself, and feel the energy!

10. Choose a spot, whether in the Masjid or in your home.

Where you can have peace and solitude. Keep your mushaf, praying mat, and water at hand so that you are not distracted by constantly getting up for this or that.

11. IMP: Switch off those phones.

This is not the night to tweet pics or update FB statuses about how amazing the night is and how you are feeling & worshipping Allah! Let that be a secret between you & your Rabb! So switch off those phones, wifi, laptops and computers. Disconnect with the world, and connect with al-‘Afuww!

12. If you find yourself feeling sleepy, vary your acts of worship.

laylatul qadr

Alternate between qiyaam, heartfelt dua’a, reading the Qur’an. Do not spend the night listening to lectures or recitations. Or do it only for a short while when you feel the sleep coming on!

13. Patience is the Key: The last 10 days might be tiring.

You might still have work or school. This is the time to bear all that hardship, and keep firm sabr. Think how Allah has blessed you with this tremendous opportunity that might NEVER come again in your life again. If you knew for sure that this was your last Ramadan , if you knew certainly that Jannah was up for grabs, wouldn’t you sprint for it no matter what it takes?

14. This is most important: Keep husn adh-dhann bi Allah (good expectations from Allah).

When you ask, remember you are asking the Most Generous King. If you hope for the best, He will give you the best. Don’t hold back. Trust in Him, pour out your heart in front of Him, and let no doubt, no barrier, no evil thoughts keep you away from ar-Rahman, ar-Raheem!

Allahumma ballighna laylatul qadr..

SPICE UP YOUR MARRIED LIFE

Marriage is a sacred bond, a Sunnah of our Prophet Muhammad(saw) and the way of attaining the pleasure of Allah.

Married Life:

When everything is new, it is easy to remain enthusiastic, but the reality is that somehow along the way in that journey, many people lose sight of the beauty in a good marriage and fall into negative patterns. A marital bond is something that is meant to be cultivated and grown with efforts from both husband as well as a wife. Whether you are just beginning your married life or are into it for quite some time. Add value to your bond and relation. Here are some tips to spice up your beautiful journey.

1.   Set aside time for your spouse (Married Life)

Aisha (RA) reported that she was with Allah’s messenger during a journey. She said, “I was not bulky”. He told his companions to move forward and they did. He then told me: “Come and race me”. I raced him on foot and I beat him. But, on another journey, when I became bulky, he asked me to race him. I raced him and he beat me. He started laughing and said: “This makes up for that beating”.

The greatest gift that you can give your spouse in a marriage is endless your time. Of course, we have work and daily chores that need to be fulfilled but not giving your spouse the proper time that they deserve is being unjust towards them. How can one expect a beautiful understanding and strong bond with another person if he/she doesn’t spend time with his/her spouse?

It is this primary bond that will build the foundation of the family, so it has to be nurtured. Take drives, go out on walks, and even sit back at the end of the evening with a cup of tea or coffee to have a meaningful conversation.

2. Express your love through gratitude

“And of His signs is that He has created spouses for yourselves from your own selves so you might take comfort in them and He has created love and mercy among both of you. In this, there is evidence (of the truth) for the people who (carefully) think.” (Surah 30, Verse 21).

Love and mercy should be the hallmarks of any solid marriage and relationship. We see that it is stipulated in the scriptures. But is this truly what is practiced in modern daily life?

One must never take another person for granted. We all have our emotional needs. Certain actions of kindness and love work a great deal. Also, a nice little gesture or word indicating your love towards your spouse is great. That extra snack that your wife packs into your lunchbox or when your husband agrees to take the children away so that you can have time at your Mum’s place, can all seem mandatory and expected.

3.   Make an effort

Sayyiduna Ibn Abbās Radi Allahu anhu said: “As my wife adorns herself for me, I adorn myself with her. I do not want to take all of my rights from her so that she will not take all of her rights from me because of Allah, the Exalted, stated the following: “And women shall have rights similar to the rights against them.” (Qur῾ān2:228.)[11]

Our spouses have the right to see us in good shape and hygiene. Always remember that your spouse is a deserving recipient of your best. Marriage can be a complex situation at times, but there are still basic principles of a man and woman and attraction at play in a husband and wife relationship in Islam and an effort made in this department can help strengthen the marital bond.

A good scent, a clean body, good dress, and some makeup and accessories for the ladies all communicate to your spouse that you have a positive attitude about yourself and that you respect your marriage enough to make the effort. Men must also make the effort to be well-groomed to the best of their ability.

married life

4.   Do fun, halaal activities together

The Prophet (sall Allahu alaihe wa sallam) stated, “Allah is pleased when a husband plays with his wife, due to this he fixes Sawaab (good reward) for them or he establishes halal rizq (lawful sustenance) for them.” (Al-Ifsah Ibn Hajr Haithami)

From an Islamic perspective, marriage is treated with the utmost solemnity. However, this does not mean that fun within the marriage context should not be had.

As much as marriage can fall into a routine, it is important that as a couple you two retain the identity of man and wife. Before the two of you may have become mum and dad, you were both each other’s sweethearts and it is important to retain that identity and grow the love that exists there. Play games, eat out at your favorite restaurants and get the heart rate up with some fun adrenaline -filled sport. Create a buzz that you will remember and talk about for years to come.

married life

5.   Be thoughtful, kind and give gifts (Married Life)

“Be kind towards your women. Take heed! You have rights over your women and your women also have rights over you. Their rights over you are that you provide food and clothing for them in good faith. Your rights over them are that they do not allow and nor do they give permission, for people to trespass into your house whose presence you dislike.” 

There is an understanding from this Hadith and the essence of that understanding is that there are rights and responsibilities that exist between men and women. A man must take the helm as a provider, but equally, a woman needs to close ranks and protect the home from any presence that may threaten it.

Get him or her, their favorite attar or book they would like to read. Contrary to what it may seem like, these are not necessarily material expressions of love. What it does convey, is that you took the time to observe and listen to your partner’s needs and found ways to meet them, which is in itself an ideal way to endear yourself to your partner.

married life

6.   Communicate with each other regarding feelings (Married Life)

The Prophet (sall Allahu alaihe wa sallam) said, “I severely dislike that woman who puts her cloak on and leaves the home in order to complain about her husband.” (Tabrani, Haithami)

If indeed your marriage has come to the point, where you feel that you need to go outside of the home to vent and complain about your spouse, perhaps it might be time to re-examine your methods of communication. Consider taking the time to discuss feelings and emotions. Both men and women are different in the ways in which they feel and interpret behavior. Make sure conversations are constructive, rather than destructive.

Speak from a place of building rather than breaking down. As husband and wife in Islam, you should always speak about how you feel and don’t just express displeasure but also speak of your joys and successes. If you are displeased with something about your spouse, converse with him/her in most polite and humble way. If your spouse is upset with you try to bring joy and fix the problem without being stubborn.

married life

7.   Take responsibility for the energy you bring to the table

Narrated AbuHurayrah: When the Prophet (peace be upon him) congratulated a man on his marriage, he said: May Allah bless for you, and may He bless on you, and combine both of you in good (works).

Sunan of Abu Dawood – Book 11 Hadith 2125

From this narration of hadith, it is evident that each partner needs to take responsibility for the attitude and the actions that they bring to the table in married life. The good works referred to isn’t necessarily a reference just to actions and deeds, but also to act in good faith and good spirit toward one another.

Married Life :

8.   Be positive and spontaneous

“The most perfect believer in faith is the one whose character is finest and who is kindest to his wife.” Hadith

Love and marriage thrive under positive action. Take that leave that you’ve been putting off. For just one evening of the week, skip the gym and get home a little earlier to your wife. Ladies, meet your husband in the middle of a workday for a lunch date. Most importantly speak to your spouse in the quiet times about acts of spontaneity that would add value to their lives. Then make it a part of the marriage ‘bucket-list’ to go about adding those highlights to their lives.

married life

9. Remember the good times and protect each other

“They (your wives) are a clothing (covering) for you and you too are a clothing (covering) for them.” (Surah 2, Verse 187)

Marriage is the ultimate act of teamwork. With this in mind, protect your partner, speak positivity into their life. Remember that you are not just a marital partner, but the other half of a winning team (married life). Inshallah, your marriage is a growing asset and foundation upon which you will raise wonderful children and fulfill the goals of half of your deen.

10. Allow your spouse to be themselves (Married Life)

Narrated by Thawban: When (the wahi) “And those who hoard gold and silver” came down they were with the Prophet (sall Allahu alaihi wa sallam) on one of his journeys. One of his companions said, “It has come down about gold and silver. Would that we knew which property is best so that we might acquire it!” He replied, “The best property is a tongue which mentions Allah, a grateful heart, and a believing wife who helps a man with his faith.”

Ahmad, Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah transmitted it.

[Al-Tirmidhi – Hadith 2275]

Accept your spouse for who they are. Be present in the relationship and the marriage that you have built.  Simply put, what this means is accepting your spouse and allowing them the space to be themselves. Too often in marriages, one or the other spouse tends to dominate, scold or belittle the other in front of guests and the children just to keep up appearances. Such behavior places a damper on the spirit of the marriage.

Yes, there may be aspects in the other that cause you irritation, but the truth is that variety is the spice of life.

If you really have a problem with the way your husband slurps his soup or if you find your wife’s laughter to be a little too high-pitched at a social gathering, quietly and lovingly address such issues away from the public eye. Remember that the purpose of a journey in marriage is to grow together and part of that is allowing your loved one to be true to who they are.

May Allah bless us all.

LOVE MARRIAGE OR ARRANGED MARRIAGE – WHAT IS BETTER ACCORDING TO ISLAM?

LOVE MARRIAGE OR ARRANGED MARRIAGE 

Praise be to Allah.
The issue of this (love marriage or arranged marriage) depends on the ruling on what came before it. If the love between the two parties did not transgress the limits set by Allah or make them commit sin, then there is the hope that the marriage which results from this love will be more stable, because it came about as the result of the fact that each of them wanted to marry the other.

If a man feels some attraction towards a woman whom it is permissible for him to marry her, and vice versa, there is no answer to the problem except marriage. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “We do not think that there is anything better for those who love one another than marriage.” (Narrated by Ibn Maajah, 1847; classed as saheeh by al-Busayri and by Shaykh al-Albaani in al-Silsilah al-Saheehah, 624)

Al-Sindi said, as noted in Haamish Sunan Ibn Maajah :

The phrase “We do not think that there is anything better for those who love one another than marriage” may be understood to refer to two or to more than two. What this means is that if there is love between two people, that love cannot be increased or made to last longer by anything like marriage.  If there is marriage as well as that love, that love will increase and grow stronger every day.”

love marriage
Love Marriage or Arranged Marriage

But if that marriage comes about as a result of an illicit love relationship, such as when they meet and are alone together and kiss one another, and other haraam actions, then it will never be stable, because they committed actions that go against sharee’ah and because they have built their lives on things that will have the effect of reducing blessings and support from Allah, for sin is a major factor in reducing blessings, even though some people think, because of the Shaytaan’s whispers, that falling in love and doing haraam deeds makes marriage stronger.

Moreover, these illicit relationships that take place before marriage will be a cause to make each party doubtful about the other.

The husband will think that his wife may possibly have a similar relationship with someone else, and even if he thinks it unlikely, he will still be troubled by the fact that his wife did do something wrong with him.

And the same thoughts may occur to the wife too, and she will think that her husband could possibly have an affair with another woman, and even if she thinks it unlikely, she will still be troubled by the fact that her husband did something wrong with her.

So each partner will live in a state of doubt and suspicion, which will ruin their relationship sooner or later.

The husband may condemn his wife for having agreed to have a relationship with him before marriage, which will be upsetting for her, and this will cause their relationship to deteriorate.

love marriage

Hence we think that if a marriage is based upon an illicit premarital relationship, it will most likely be unstable and will not be successful.

With regard to arranged marriages where the family chooses the partner, they are not all good and not all bad. If the family makes a good choice and the woman is religious and beautiful, and the husband likes her and wants to marry her, then there is the hope that their marriage will be stable and successful. Hence the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) urged the one who wants to get married to look at the woman.

It was narrated from al-Mugheerah ibn Shu’bah that he proposed marriage to a woman, and the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “Go and look at her, because that is more likely to create love between you.” (Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 1087; classed as hasan by al-Nasaa’i, 3235)

But if the family make a bad choice, or they make a good choice but the husband does not agree with it, then this marriage is most likely doomed to failure and instability, because the marriage that is based on lack of interest usually is not stable.

And Allah knows best.

APRIL FOOLS DAY IS PROHIBITED IN ISLAM

April Fools Day :

Your best friend comes up to you and tells you news that makes you jump for joy. No sooner have you expressed your happiness than he quickly tells you it is untrue. You stare at him blankly an asked him why he lied. He says to you: “It’s April Fools Day.

Does Islam sanction such behavior?

Can it regard such behavior as a harmless custom? Can we concoct lies containing happy or sad news, as long as we quickly inform the other person that it is a lie or cry out “April Fools!”?

Lying is not permissible at all, at any time.

april fools day
April Fools Day

And it is not permissible to imitate the kuffar (non-Muslims) and to be like them, on this day or on any other, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Whoever imitates a people is one of them.” 

To start with, we must know that a lie is defined as giving information about something, where that information is at variance with the truth. A lie is forbidden in Islam.

April Fools Day :

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said:

“Be truthful, for indeed truth guides us to righteousness, and righteousness leads us to Paradise. A man remains honest and steadfast in ascertaining the truth until he is recorded with Allah as a truthful person. A lie guides us to wickedness, and wickedness leads us to Hell. A man keeps lying and seeking out lies until he is recorded with Allah as a liar.” [Sahîh al-Bukhârî (6134) and Sahîh Muslim (2607)]

WHAT DOES ISLAM SAY ABOUT “LOVE BEFORE MARRIAGE”

“LOVE BEFORE MARRIAGE” IN ISLAM (Love Marriage)

Marriage is a very special and sacred bond created by Allah subhana-wa-ta’ala between a man and a woman.
Marriage makes them permissible for one another and lives a life of beauty. Allah azzawajal has described in glorious Quran this relationship in most beautiful terms and has mentioned that this bond is filled with love, mercy, compassion, security, and understanding. (love marriage)

“And among His signs is this that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that you may dwell in tranquility with them, and He has put love and mercy between your hearts: Verily in that are signs for those who reflect. (Quran 30:21)

Thus a marriage is a blessing and a source of mercy and comfort for a man. It is also a very important Sunnah of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (saw)

love marriage
Love Marriage

Love Marriage :

 The Messenger of Allah (May Allah bless him and grant him peace) said:

“The Nikah is my Sunnah (way), whosoever leaves my Sunnah is not from amongst me” (Kitabus Sunan – Mishkat)

In another narration he has narrated: 

“Young men, those of you who can support a wife should marry, for it keeps you from looking at non-permissible females and protects you from immorality. However, those who cannot devote themselves to fasting, for it is a means of suppressing sexual desire.” (Bukhari and Muslim)

In Islam, a marriage is valid if both bride and groom have accepted the bond and by the permission of the parents of both of them. 

Islam does not blame a person’s feeling. One can have a feeling of love for known or unknown reason and he/she is not accountable for what he feels. The emotion of love that one feels is not the subject of questioning on the day of Judgement. But the actions that follow that emotion are accountable.

If the actions lead to evil, it is forbidden. If it doesn’t then it is acceptable. If it prompts you to see that person in seclusion, talk to them for hours, hide that from your parents than it is forbidden, my brothers and sisters. 

love marriage

Some Hadith and Quranic verses that support this:

“….then be not soft in speech, lest he in whose heart is a disease (of hypocrisy, or evil desire for adultery) should be moved with desire” (Quran – Surah Al-Ahzaab : 32)

“Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, let him not be alone with a woman who has no mahram present, for the third one present will be the Shaytaan.” (Ahmad – saheeh by al-Albaani)

“And come not near to unlawful sex. Verily, it is a Faahishah (i.e. anything that transgresses its limits: a great sin, and an evil way that leads one to hell unless Allah Forgives him)” (Quran – Al-Isra’ : 32)

“If one of you were to be stabbed in the head with an iron needle, that would be better for him than his touching a woman who is not permissible for him.” (Al-Tabaraani –saheeh by al-Albaani)

Marriages that are done due to people falling in love are acceptable as long as they do not cross the limits set by Allah azawajal (love marriage).

If a person happens to love someone he/she should approach the other lawfully and get married immediately (love marriage). For marriage will protect them from evil sexual desires and indeed from hellfire.

“And of His signs is that He created for you wives from among yourselves, that you might reside with them, and has put love and mercy between you. Surely, there are signs in this for those who think. (Quran – Al-Room : 21)

If a child asks his/her parent to get him/her married than they must do so immediately. Excuses like caste, race, color, society, financial status etc. are not accepted. The only things that matter are the deen of Allah and a good character. If you deny your child the right to marriage with the person of their choice on the grounds of financial status or caste than you are accountable for your action. May Allah protect us all.

Abu Hurairah narrates that the Messenger of Allah (May Allah bless him and grant him peace) said :

“when one with whose religion and character you are satisfied asks your daughter in marriage then accede to his request. If you do not do so then there will be a temptation in the earth and extensive corruption”. (Tirmidhi)

love marriage

In Islam, it is not a sin to feel a specific way or feeling of affection for a certain individual since a human being has no control over such things. However, he is definitely responsible for the actions that follow. He will be accountable if he got carried away by this feeling. That is where a man has to restrain himself and protect himself from harm.

Islam does not allow the illicit relationship between a man and a woman. Allah has established the bond of marriage between a man and a woman so that both of them enjoy each other’s company in a legitimate way and bot may attain Allah’s mercy and blessing. There is no blessing in an illicit affair.

Islam forbids all forms of ‘dating’ and isolating oneself with a member of the opposite sex, as well indiscriminate mingling and mixing.

Correspondence between sexes leads to fitnah. If, however, one does none of the above, and all that he or she wants is to seriously consider marrying someone, such a thing itself is not considered haram.

In fact, Islam encourages us to marry persons for whom we have special feelings and affinity. Thus, Islam recommends that potential marriage partners see one another before proposing marriage. Which in no sense means that we are allowed to “date”.

Love Marriage :

The permissible ways to get the one whom you loves are sufficient i.e

Contact the wali or the guardian of the person whom you desire to marry, there is no need for haraam means (love marriage), but we make it hard for ourselves and the Shaytaan takes advantage of that.

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

A person may hear that a woman is of good character and virtuous and knowledgeable so he may want to marry her. Or a woman may hear that a man is of good character and virtuous and knowledgeable and religiously committed, so she may want to marry him.

love marriage

But contact between the two who admire one another in ways that are not Islamically acceptable is the problem, which leads to disastrous consequences (love marriage). In this case, it is not permissible for the man to get in touch with the woman or for the woman to get in touch with the man and say that he wants to marry her.

Rather he should tell her wali (guardian) that he wants to marry her, or she should tell her wali that she wants to marry him, as ‘Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him) did when he offered his daughter Hafsah in marriage to Abu Bakr and ‘Uthmaan (may Allaah be pleased with them both). But if the woman contacts the man directly or if the man contacts woman directly, this is may lead to fitnah (temptation).


IS IT RIGHT TO CHANGE SURNAME AFTER MARRIAGE

Woman Changing her Surname After Marriage

Praise be to Allah

The wives of the Prophet (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam) are the Mothers of the Believers, and the Prophet (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam), is the noblest of people and the best example. And yet when we look at their example, we will realize that when the Prophet(Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam) married any of his wives, NOT ONE of them took his name. (Change surname after marriage)

On the contrary, each one of them kept her father’s name even if her father was a kaafir. Similarly, the wives of the Sahaabah and those who came after them did not change their names.

Did you ever think why they didn’t do that?

Surely, if it was a good thing, the wives of the Prophet (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam) would have done it and the Prophet (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam) would himself have instructed it and encouraged them to do it.

That is because it is Allaah’s order to keep your father’s name as an indication of your lineage.

“Call them (adopted sons) by (the names of) their fathers, that is more just with Allaah…” [al-Ahzaab 33:5].

And the Prophet (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam) said:

“Whoever calls himself by other than his father’s name, will be cursed by Allaah, the angels and all the people.” (Ibn Maajah -Saheeh by al-Albaani).

change surname after marriage
Change surname after marriage

And he (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam) also said:

“Whoever knowingly claims to belong to anyone other than his father, Paradise will be denied him.” (Ahmad, al-Bukhaari, Muslim).

Now some might argue….“But the woman is not claiming that her father is someone else. She is just honoring her husband or she doesn’t mean it that way. She just wants to belong to her husband out of love for him.”

To those people I say.

If it was a matter of honor to have the husbands name attached to the wife’s, wouldn’t our Ummahaat have done that??

Isn’t it the biggest honor in the WORLD to have the name of the Prophet (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam) attached to yours? And yet the wives of the Prophet (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam) didn’t do that.

Ever wonder why?

And if it was a matter of expressing love for the husband, no relationship between a husband and wife on the face of this earth was better than the relationship between the Prophet (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam) and his wives. And yet none of the Mothers of the Believers expressed their love for the Prophet (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam) by changing their last names.

And Allah knows best.

Is Celebrating New Year for Muslim Valid?

HAPPY NEW YEAR : Celebrating New Year for Muslim Valid Or Not?

Answer :
All praise be to Allah

Happy New Year :- January is named after Janus, the Roman god of doors and gateways. He was commonly depicted in statues, carvings and paintings as a two headed man with one head facing forward and the other head facing backwards.

In 46BC Julius Caesar chose January 1st as the first day of the New Year as Janus symbolically represented the door to the New Year.

Wild parties and orgies were held on the night before the New Year’s Day as a re-enactment of the chaos which Roman mythology depicted as preceding the cosmos or the ordered world whose organization was set by the gods.

Furthermore, by that time, Janus had become, in practice, the highest god receiving the ritual sacrifices of Roman worshippers before the other gods, including the chief god, Jupiter.

happy new year

Thus, in its essence the celebrations of the Happy New Year on January 1st and New Year’s Eve, the night before, are a part and parcel of pagan religious rituals based on idolatrous beliefs in false gods.

Consequently, it is completely Haraam (sinful and forbidden) for Muslims to participate in or adopt any of its related rituals, customs and symbols.

If a Non-Muslim greets a Muslim, “Happy New Year”, the Muslim is not allowed to respond in a similar manner or say, “Same to you.” Instead, in order not to offend or hurt the feelings of Non-Muslim friends or acquaintances, one may say instead, “Happy holiday.”

As for celebrating the Happy New Year according to the Islamic calendar which begins with the month of Muharram, this is also not permissible from a number of perspectives.

First and foremost, if one does so believing that it is pleasing to Allah to do so, thereby transforming it into an act of worship, it becomes a Bid‘ah or cursed innovation in the religion about which the Prophet (pbuh) said, “Every innovation in religion is misguidance and all misguidance leads to the Hellfire.”

If one does so merely as a custom, it is still impermissible as it falls under the prohibition of imitation of pagan customs about which the Prophet (pbuh) said, “Whoever imitates a people becomes one of them.”

[1] Pope Gregory 13th who set the modern calendar, the Gregorian calendar, also officially fixed the first day of the year for Christian Europe as January 1st in 1582.

4 Reasons Why Muslims Shouldn’t Celebrate New Year’s

1) It is technically inaccurate – & pagan

happy new year

As Muslims, we have our own calendar that has been in constant use for 1400 years. Even though we may end up using the Gregorian calendar due to circumstances beyond our control, we know for a fact that Allāh has ordained the use of the lunar calendar for us in our worship – and therefore, by extension, our daily lives.

According to our Hijri calendar (initiated by the great Sahaaba Umar ®), the new year actually begins on the first of Muharram.

The Gregorian calendar (so called because it was developed by Pope Gregory) decided on the 1st of January as the Happy New Year to celebrate the circumcision of Jesus.

Its origin – like so many Western holidays – lies in the pagan Roman festivals associated with Janus – the two headed deity who symbolised change.

2). What exactly is there to celebrate?

Any celebration by Muslims needs to be put into context of the local and global situation of the Ummah. The two Eids amply do so by encouraging prayers, duaa for those suffering and alms to the needy.

However, celebrating Happy New Years does no such thing. It is a celebration that is completely cut off from the reality of the rest of the Ummah.

The starvation in Somalia, the murder in Syria, the imprisonment of Gaza, the ethnic cleansing of Burma – celebrating New Year’s is pretty much exactly the opposite of the “fever and wakefulness” that the Prophet (peace be upon him) spoke about when he said we were like one body.

happy new year

Salahuddin Ayyubi was once asked why he hardly ever smiled even though this was a sunnah of the Prophet (peace be upon him).

He replied, “How can I smile when I know that masjid Al-Aqsa is being defiled and the Muslims are suffering?!”

That attitude, dear brothers and sisters, is why he liberated Jerusalem and why we’re still debating on whether or not it is acceptable to send “Happy New Year” messages.

3) It usually involves un-Islamic practices

Let’s be honest. When you picture Happy New Year’s Eve celebration, you don’t picture people sitting in a segregated environment reading from the Qurʾān & Hadiths and reminding each other towards good as the clock strikes midnight.

Instead, they are (and I know this is a generalisation) mixed gender events where people wear fashionable clothes, dance and sing songs, etc. It is necessarily an Islam free zone, not least because it has no basis or relationship to Islam.

4) It is against the spirit of Islam

I am well aware that there is a difference of opinion on this matter between scholars, and I respect that. However, there are a few points I’d make to that.

Firstly, the number of scholars who condone the celebration of Happy New Years are in the absolute minority.

Secondly, the scholars who do condone it almost never actually celebrate New Years themselves or with their families – at least not in public – showing that even though they may believe it acceptable, it is not preferable.

Thirdly, many of them predicate their views based on a number of caveats – that it is no longer a pagan or Christian ritual, that it is good da‘wah to non-Muslims and that it not involve any un-Islamic element. Most of these caveats are difficult if not impossible to satisfy adequately.

This is meant to be a gentle reminder and not a harsh rebuke. It would be against the spirit of Islam to not show kindness and respect to non-Muslims. We are encouraged to be warm and welcoming, not least because it will attract others to our faith.

happy new year

But there are many ways to showcase our manners and act as ambassadors for our faith without having to adopt the celebrations of others.

By adopting the celebrations of others, we are not harmlessly saying a few words or just enjoying ourselves.

We are opening the door to disappearing within the dominant culture, to a future in which our children may have Muslim names, but are otherwise indistinguishable from non-Muslims in their habits, customs and appearances.

This issue occupied the minds of greater people than us – Uthman (R), Ali (R) and many other of the greatest Sahaaba.

When the great assemblage of the companions of the Prophet (Peace be upon him) had discussed this issue at length, the matter was brought to a close by the wise words of Caliph Umar (R) that are as relevant today as they were then.

He said, “The Hijrah has separated truth from falsehood, therefore, let it become the epoch of the era.”

Main Point :
A Muslim should not celebrate New Year.

DOES JESUS (PBUH) UNNATURAL BIRTH MAKE HIM GREATER THAN PROPHET MUHAMMAD (PBUH)

All praise be to Allah

Dr. Zakir Naik : Jesus or Muhammad (Pbut)

jesus or muhammad
Dr. Zakir Naik

Islam is the only Non Christian faith which makes an article of faith to believe in Jesus (pbuh). We believe that He was one of the mightiest Messenger of Allah, we believe He was a Messiah translated Christ, we believe He was born miraculously without any male intervention, we believe that He gave life to the death with God permission. (Jesus or Muhammad)

The Christians and Muslims we are going together but there is parting of faith. The parting of faith is that many of the Christians they claim and they think that Jesus (pbuh) He claim divinity and He was almighty God.

Many Christians say if Prophet Jesus (pbuh) born miraculously, He had a mother but had no father so doesn’t it make him superior than Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) indicating that doesn’t it make him God.

If you say Jesus (pbuh) is superior or you claim Him to be God because He was born miraculously. Allah says in Quran:

The similitude of Jesus (pbuh) in front of Allah is the same as Adam (pbuh), He was made from dust and Allah say be and He was. If you say Jesus (pbuh) is God because He had no father in that context according to Quran and Bible Adam (pbuh) had no mother and father that makes Him a greater God.

jesus or muhammad

Nowhere in Quran and nowhere in Bible says that because a person has no father he becomes Almighty God. Allah is the best to create and he wants to show people His power and normally human being is born with the mother and father.

We had a example of Adam (pbuh) who was born without a father and mother and we have a last example pending was a person being born without a father which He fulfill in the birth of Jesus (pbuh).

We Muslims believe and even the Bible says that Jesus (pbuh) did not die. Allah says in the Quran that He was not kill neither He was crucified but Allah raised Him up unto Himself.

Now the question is that if Jesus (pbuh) did not die he is alive doesn’t He the greater Prophet than the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). The answer of this question is that the Jesus (pbuh) is the only Messenger of Allah whose followers mistook Him that He claim divinity.

There is not a single prophet of Almighty Allah whose followers mistook them that they claim divinity. He was the only Prophet whose followers mistook Him That he claim He was god That is why Allah raised Him up Alive so that in His second Coming He could testify to these people that He never claim divinity.

Allah says in Quran :

jesus or muhammad

That in His second coming He will tell to Allah that You being my witness. I never told them to worship me, i told them worship Allah who is my lord and your Lord and the same thing is mentioned in Bible that in his second coming when people will say ”O Master O Mater” did we not do the wonders and miracles in your name.

He will say O evil men i don’t even know you, you depart from here so Allah has raised jesus (pbuh) alive because in His second coming He will not give any new message because Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is the last and final messenger which is mentioned in the Quran.

After him and after the Quran was revealed nothing new can be added or subtracted from the religion of Islam. He will come as the Ummat of Muhammad (pbuh).

He will come not to give any new teaching but to testify to the followers that He never claim divinity and He is the messenger of Allah.

jesus or muhammad

So the major difference between the Muslims and the Christians is that most of the Christians think that He claim divinity in fact if you read the Bible there is not a single unequivocal statement in the complete Bible where Jesus (pbuh) Himself says that I am God or where He says worship me.

If any christian can point out a single verse in the Bible, a single unequivocal statement where jesus (pbuh) Himself says that I am God or where He says worship Me. I am ready to accept Christianity today.

So Jesus (pbuh) never claim divinity but He was one of the mightiest messenger of Almighty Allah.

6 MUSLIM BELIEFS CONCERNING JESUS CHRIST (Pbuh) EACH CHRISTIAN SHOULD GRASP

All praise be to Allah.

The following are 6 Muslim beliefs about Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) every Christian must know.

1. One cannot be a Muslim without believing in Jesus Christ

A believer is not a believer if he/she does not believe in the prophet Jesus Christ or Isa (AS). A Muslim must believe and respect all the prophets, from Adam to Muhammad (peace be upon him). 

jesus christ
Jesus Christ (Pbuh)

Say, [O believers], “We have believed in Allah and what has been revealed to us and what has been revealed to Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the Descendants and what was given to Moses and Jesus Christ and what was given to the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and we are Muslims [in submission] to Him.” Qur’an, 2:136

Allah mentions Jesus in Quran along with other prophets. 

2. He had a miraculous birth 

A believer in Islamic faith believes that Jesus Christ (pbuh) was born miraculously without a father. He was born to virgin Mary (Maryam(AS)). Mary is also respected and venerated by Muslims all across the world. Allah has mentioned this event in Quran and a full chapter in Quran is named after her.

3. He performed miracles 

Yes, we believe that Jesus Christ (pbuh) performed many miracles by the will of Allah such as creating a bird from clay or curing the blind and leper and bringing the dead back to life.

jesus christ

And [make him] a messenger to the Children of Israel, [who will say], ‘Indeed I have come to you with a sign from your Lord in that I design for you from clay [that which is] like the form of a bird, then I breathe into it and it becomes a bird by permission of God .

And I cure the blind and the leper, and I give life to the dead – by permission of God. And I inform you of what you eat and what you store in your houses. Indeed in that is a sign for you, if you are believers. Qur’an, 3:49

Allah explained in Quran that if Jesus (pbuh) was able to perform these miracles only by the permission and will of Allah lest people start thinking he was God.

4. He is not God

Muslims do believe that Jesus is Messenger of God, sent to guide people but he was not divine. Muslims don’t believe in his divinity. They don’t acknowledge him as the God or son of God. They believe him to be a human being like themselves who was given the task of conveying the message of oneness of God to people. 

5. He was not crucified 

jesus christ
Jesus Christ

Christians believe that Jesus Christ (pbuh) was crucified but Muslims don’t and differ in this belief. Muslims believe that Jesus Christ (pbuh) was raised to heaven by God and one of his foes was made to look like him, who was crucified instead. 

And [for] their saying, “Indeed, we have killed the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, the messenger of Allah .” And they did not kill him, nor did they crucify him; but [another] was made to resemble him to them. And indeed, those who differ over it are in doubt about it. They have no knowledge of it except the following of assumption. And they did not kill him, for certain. Qur’an 4:157 

6. Jesus Christ will return 

Muslims believe that Jesus Christ (pbuh) is in heaven and will be sent to Earth once again before the final day of the world and establish peace in the world. 

As part of a longer narration, the Prophet Muhammad is reported to have said:

“By the one whose hands my life is in, surely the Son of Mary will descend amongst you as a just ruler…” Sahih Al Bukhari

WHY DON’T MUSLIMS CELEBRATE THE BIRTHDAY OF PROPHET JESUS (PEACE BE UPON HIM)

CELEBRATE THE BIRTHDAY OF PROPHET JESUS :

All praise be to Allah.

The Christmas (Jesus birthday) is a Christian festival and is improved (innovated) by polytheists. It isn’t admissible for a Muslim to praise it or welcome (greet) it to anybody as it is an impersonation of Kuffaar. Additionally, Esa (Alaihi Salaam) has nothing to do with it or them.

Aside from being a development (innovation), it goes under the heading of emulating doubters (disbelievers) in their religion.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) stated: “Whoever emulates a people is one of them.”

Described by Abu Dawood (3512); classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Sunan Abi Dawood. Its isnaad was classed as jayyid by Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah, who stated:

jesus birthday

The minimum that can be said about this hadith is that it infers that it is disallowed to mimic (imitate) them. Anyway the obvious significance demonstrates that the person who copies them is a doubter (disbeliever), as Allah, may He be lifted up, says: “And on the off chance that any among you accepts them as Awliya’ ((companions, defenders, aides, etc.)), definitely he is one of them” [al-Maa’idah 5:51].

Saluting or welcome a non-muslim on the event of Christmas or some other religious celebrations is haram as per the majority of researchers (scholars). It is on the grounds that it suggests that you affirm of what they do and venerate (worship). It implies you endorse of their skepticism (disbelief).

Regardless of whether he doesn’t favor of this skepticism (disbelief) for himself, it is haraam for the Muslim to support of ceremonies of incredulity
(disbelief) or to praise (congratulate) another person for them.

Correspondingly, it is haraam for the Muslims to mirror (imitate) the skeptics (disbelievers) by hosting gatherings on these events, or trading endowments (gifts), disseminating (distributing) desserts or plates of sustenance (food), requiring some investment off work, etc, in light of the fact that the Prophet (peace be upon him) stated: “Whoever mimics (imitates) a people is one of them.” Narrated by Abu Dawood.

To entirety up: the mischief that outcomes from Muslims commending the Gregorian New Year (or Christmas) might be outlined in the accompanying focuses:
JESUS BIRTHDAY :-

jesus birthday

1. The expectation (intention) and inspiration of these celebrations (festivals) and gatherings is shirk. Henceforth going to such gatherings or taking part in these occasions is indulging in shirk and impersonation of mushrikeen. Likewise it isn’t as per the instructing of Prophet Jesus (Alaihi Salaam) as he never endorses any such occasions for them or us.

So they are a blend of shirk and advancement (innovation), not with standing what they blend with that of unethical and insidiousness activities in these gatherings, as is notable. So how might we emulate (imitate) them in such manner?

2. The festival is malicious (evil) in all perspectives. It includes shrewd (evil) and degenerate (corrupt) activities. It is shrik and an asin apart from all the shameless (immoral) activity that occurs amid it. In view of that we can’t state that it is passable (permissible).

3. In the event that praising (celebrating) a birthday of a prophet is of any ideals (virtue) than for what reason don’t we commend the birthday events of all prophets known to us? Is it accurate to say that they are not prophets sufficiently commendable? Is it accurate to say that they were not sent by Allah?

4. The information of the birthday of any prophet isn’t known and is preposterous. The correct date of his introduction to the world isn’t known, as the antiquarians (historians) varied concerning this issue.

Henceforth it is better for a muslim to not commend this day and be far from it.

Also, Allah knows best.

WISHING MERRY CHRISTMAS IS HARAM (FORBIDDEN). -DR ZAKIR NAIK

Wishing Merry Christmas:

They say: (God) Most Gracious has sired (begotten) a child! For sure ye have advanced a thing generally gigantic! At it the skies are prepared to blast, the earth to part to shreds, and the mountains to tumble down in absolute demolish, that they ought to summon a child for (God) Most Gracious. For it isn’t consonant with the grandness of (God) Most Gracious that He ought to bring forth a son.{Quran 19:88-92}

Say: He is Allah the One and Only; Allah the Eternal Absolute; He begets not nor is He begotten, and there is none like unto Him.{Quran 112}

Welcome (greetings) on Merry Christmas

As indicated by Islam, God neither conceives nor he is sired and the greatest maltreatment you can provide for God is to state âHe sired (begot) a sonâ. This is on the grounds that; bringing forth is a lower creature capacity of sex which can’t be ascribed to God.

As indicated by Christianity, Jesus (pbuh) is the main generated child of God and Christmas is commended as his birthday. Since this is considered as the greatest maltreatment (abuse) given to God, Muslims are not permitted to wish Christians on this day.

A Christian whines about forbiddance of Muslims celebrating or praising individuals at Merry Christmas

All Praise be to the One God, who generates not, nor is sired (begotten).

You appear to have misconstrued the judgment of festivity of Merry Christmas as an issue of insolence for Christians. In all actuality, it is keeping in mind Allah and Jesus (pbuh) and the lessons of our Prophet Muhammad, (peace be upon him).

It is a fundamental piece of our confidence (faith) to dismiss festivities that have not been recommended or potentially that have a premise in deception, as unavoidably they lead to misguidance and changes in confidence (faith), as has occurred with Christianity.

There is not all that much or “periphery” about this. It is our fundamental ideal (right) to shield our confidence (faith) and practice from twisting and misrepresentation. Most likely nobody has a privilege to denounce us for this.

The word Christmas is derived from the Old English Cristes maesse, “Christ’s Mass.” :

(There is no sure custom of the date of Christ’s introduction to the world. Christian chronographers of the third century trusted that the formation of the world occurred at the spring equinox, at that point figured as March 25; subsequently the new creation in the manifestation (i.e., the origination) and demise of Christ should accordingly have happened around the same time, with his introduction to the world after nine months at the winter solstice, December 25).

… According to a Roman almanac, the Christian festival of Merry Christmas was celebrated in Rome by AD 336…

(The motivation behind why Merry Christmas came to be commended on December 25 stays indeterminate, yet most presumably the reason is that early Christians wished the date to agree with the agnostic Roman celebration denoting the “birthday of the unconquered sun” ) (natalis solis invicti); this celebration praised the winter solstice, when the days again start to protract (lengthen) and the sun starts to move higher in the sky.

The customary traditions associated with Merry Christmas have as needs be created from a few sources because of the fortuitous event of the festival of the introduction of Christ with the agnostic agrarian and sun oriented observances at midwinter.

In the Roman world the Saturnalia (December 17) was a period of fun and trade of blessings.

December 25 was additionally viewed as the birth date of the Iranian puzzle (mystery) god Mithra, the Sun of Righteousness. On the Roman New Year (January 1), houses were brightened with greenery and lights, and endowments (gifts) were given to youngsters and poor people.

To these observances were included the German and Celtic Yule ceremonies when the Teutonic clans entered into Gaul, Britain, and focal Europe. Nourishment and great partnership, the Yule log and Yule cakes, greenery and fir trees, and endowments and welcome all recognized diverse parts of this happy season.

Flames and lights, images (symbols) of warmth and enduring life, have dependably been related with the winter celebration, both agnostic (pagan) and Christian. Since the European Middle Ages, evergreens, as images of survival, have been related with Merry Christmas.

So as any normal individual can see, there is no solid reason for Christmas, nor did Jesus (peace be upon him) or his actual adherents observe Christmas or request that anybody observe Christmas, nor was there any record of anybody calling themselves Christians observing Merry Christmas until a few hundred years after Jesus (peace be upon him).

So were the sidekicks of Jesus (pbuh) all the more uprightly guided in not observing Merry Christmas or are the general population of today?

So on the off chance that you need to regard Jesus (peace be upon him),  as Muslims do, don’t commend some manufactured occasion that was matched with agnostic (pagan) celebrations and duplicate agnostic traditions.

Do you sincerely think God, or even Jesus himself, would favor or denounce a wonder such as this? On the off chance that you say support, clearly you are not keen on reality.

We ask Allaah, the One, Singular God, without any accomplices or children, the God of all creation and humankind, to control every one of us to the way of direction and earnestness.

WHAT MUSLIMS NEED TO LEARN ABOUT CHRISTMAS

Muslims Need to know about Christmas :

My dear siblings and sisters the reason I am composing this article today is a direct result of a national celebration that happens and 25th December that is the celebration of Christmas.

And it is a decent open door for us after (Surat Al-ikhlas) to educate our young siblings and sisters concerning the truth of the Prophet Jesus Christ (peace be upon him), about the truth of who Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) is and why we as Muslims love Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) and why Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) is our Prophet and how our convictions are not the same as the convictions of everyone around us.

This is the correct time to tell our young siblings and sisters of this incredible man :

And this extraordinary identity and what we accept and believe about this man and what and how our convictions (beliefs) are not quite the same as alternate convictions (beliefs) in light of the fact that a significant number of our young youngsters they ask us for what valid reason don’t we observe (celebrate) Christmas?

For what reason wouldn’t we be able to have a Christmas tree?
For what reason wouldn’t we be able to do this and we do that?

Wishing Merry Christmas is Shirk

What’s more, to this we react that my dear siblings and sisters, Allah has made distinctive individuals upon various religions and every individual ought to pursue his very own religion particularly when they trust this religion is correct.

Indeed, my dear siblings and sisters, we endure different convictions 
(beliefs) and we enable others to accept as they need to accept. Islam does not drive anyone to think anything besides rather we do have confidence in reality that Allah is one and we say that anyone who accepts other than this (Islam) isn’t right and mixed up in such manner and we don’t lecture prejudice.

We don’t lecture scorn (hatred) of others :

Yet we do lecture that Allah is one and anyone who accepts other than this, they are mixed up in their conviction (belief) and it is dependent upon them and Allah will choose their destiny yet our activity is to lecture (preach) and our activity is to tell others our convictions (beliefs) and it’s their activity on the off chance that they need to tune in or on the off chance that they would prefer not to tune in and that is among them and Allah.

So we tell our young siblings and sisters that each religion has its very own long periods of festivity (celebration), its own heavenly (holy) days Buddhists don’t praise celebrations of Islam so we don’t observe Buddhist celebrations.

Christians don’t praise (celebrate) the celebrations of alternate religions like Hinduism and correspondingly we as Muslims we don’t commend (celebrate) the sacred long periods (holy days) of different religions in light of the fact that by commending those heavenly days maybe we are commending the idea driving the heavenly day and for some Christians the 25th of December is the festival of the introduction of a man they called the Son of God (Astaghafirullah)

And we don’t trust God has a child so if we somehow happened to praise that day maybe we also are stating or we trust that God has a child (Nauzubillah)

And we don’t trust that God has a child (son)

So we say to them that we are not going to celebrate on this day despite the fact that obviously our religion instructors as great habits and we can state to them a nonexclusive explanation, for example, ”may God favor (bless) you, for example, ”may God direct (guide) you” we ought not say ”Merry Christmas” on the grounds that these expressions could be hazardous we would prefer not to favor Christmas.

We don’t have faith (believe) in Christmas,

We don’t trust Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) was the child (son) of God and we’re commending his introduction to the world thusly yet we can state something conventional, for example, may ”God favor (bless) you, for example, a ”glad day today” something like this that doesn’t utilize the word Christmas doesn’t utilize any Christian motto or Christian expression.

christmas

We can make a conventional expression (generic phrase)

And we as Muslims it’s a decent chance to tell the general population around us that we likewise put stock (believe) in Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him) to such an extent that no Muslim can be a Muslim except if and until the point when he cherishes (loves) the Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him) and he trusts (believes) in Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) and it is totally passable to state Jesus Christ since Jesus Christ is the Latinized adaptation of al Masih Isa.

Al Messiah is a Christ implies (means) the one whom Allah has blessed, Messiah implies (means) the one Allah has wiped, blessed, he’s been picked (chosen) and Christos is the Latinized of Al-Masih, Christos is the person who’s been blessed so they say Christ is Messiah, this is the English or the Latin interpretation and Isa which is the Aramic of Isa, when they made an interpretation of it to Latin, it moved toward becoming Jesus (peace be upon him) so there’s nothing amiss (wrong) with saying Jesus Christ (peace be upon him).

He is Christ, He is Messiah and Allah calls him in the Quran: ”Al-Masih Ia Ibnu Maryam” in excess of multiple times in the Quran.

Allah says: Al Masih ISA, Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) so we can state Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) and we should state that Christ is our Prophet and we adore (love) Him.

And no Muslim is a Muslim until the point when he has faith in Jesus Christ and you know my dear siblings and sister that Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) has been honored in manners that no other Prophet has been honored (blessed) with.

Allah gave him such a significant number of favors, he is one of the mightiest Prophets, He is (one of the best) outstanding amongst other prophets to stroll on the essence of this world and that is the purpose of our religion.

Jesus Christ was an extraordinary prophet,

He never professed (claimed) to be the Son of God, considerably less one of a Trinity so my dear siblings and sisters we as Muslims have faith in Jesus Christ and we trust we are the genuine supporters of Jesus Christ.

This is another point, my young siblings and sisters that we have to comprehend (understand), don’t feel that Christians pursue Jesus (peace be upon him) and we pursue Muhammad (peace be upon him) this isn’t right, we pursue (follow) Jesus and Muhammad (peace be upon them). We pursue (follow) Moses and Abraham (pbut).

We are the ones after (following) the majority of the Prophets of Allah and other people who say that Jesus (pbuh) is the Son of God have mixed up, they have misconstrued, they are not following the genuine lessons of Jesus Christ (pbuh).

My young siblings and sisters in Islam realize that Jesus Christ (pbuh) is our prophet.

And we are the genuine adherents of Jesus Christ (pbuh) and our Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said that when Jesus (pbuh) returns back to this world, He will make a decision by the Sharia, by the laws of Islam and his own supporters will perceive that they committed an error and they will at that point grasp the genuine confidence and that is monotheism that is Allah subhana WA Ta’ala is one.

Watch This Video!!! Wishing Merry Christmas 

My dear siblings and sisters in Islam (Surat Al Ikhlas) instructs us that our Lord is one Lord, our God is one God, it is such a straight forward conviction (belief) but then such a significant number of different religions don’t have confidence in this, our activity is to all to lecture others that we have one flawless God, He is unique, every single other being must swing (turn) to him, He doesn’t have a kid nor is He sired (begotten) and there is nothing like him.

May Allah influence us of the individuals who to lecture this message, who trust this message, who show this message. (Ameen)
