  2. The history of the messengers: Moses The killing of the sons of Mosesnation The children of Israel carefully considered what had been said among themselves, generation after another, about Prophet Abraham (pbuh): that from his descendants there would emerge a boy who would cause the fall of the king of Egypt. This news was so well-known among the children of Israel that it reached the Pharaoh, after being mentioned to him by some of his princes. As a result and a precautionary measure, Pharaoh ordered that the sons of the children of Israel be killed to prevent such a boy from ever existing. Under the rule of Pharaoh, the children of Israel lived in oppression and injustice. {Verily, Fir’aun (Pharaoh) exalted himself in the land and made its people sects, weakening (oppressing) a group (i.e. Children of Israel) among them, killing their sons, and letting their females live. Verily, he was of the Mufsidûn (i.e. those who commit great sins and crimes, oppressors, tyrants, etc.).{ (Al-Qasas:4) Allah wanted to bless the besieged children of Israel. 5. And We wished to do a favour to those who were weak (and oppressed) in the land, and to make them rulers and to make them the inheritors, 6. And to establish them in the land, and We let Fir’aun (Pharaoh) and Hâmân and their hosts receive from them that which they feared.(Al-Qasas:5-6) The story of his birth and upbringing Pharaoh was extremely careful in ensuring that Moses would not be born, to the extent that he ordered his minions and midwives to circulate and ask pregnant women about their due dates; so the moment a male was born, he was immediately slaughtered by his butchers. However Allah wanted to show Pharaoh, Haman and their soldiers that which they feared, and when the mother of Moses gave birth to him, she knew she had to dispose of him or he would be slaughtered. {And We inspired the mother of Mûsa (Moses), (saying): “Suckle him [Mûsa (Moses)], but when you fear for him, then cast him into the river and fear not, nor grieve. Verily! We shall bring him back to you, and shall make him one of (Our) Messengers.”}(Al-Qasas:7) https://www.path-2-happiness.com/en/the-path-to-happiness-messengers-and-prophets-the-history-of-the-messengers-moses
  3. Characteristics of the Islamic legislation A divine source The source of the Islamic religion is the Great Creator, Allah, who created man and the universe and all that it contains. Having a divine source affords it numerous advantages, including one of them being that Allah is the Creator and the Sustainer, so He Alone owns the right to legislate. Moreover, prophets and their followers referred legislation back to Allah alone, and rejected all other legislations. Allah states what the seal of the prophets and messengers (pbuh) used to say about Allah’s legislation: {Say (O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam]): “I am not a new thing among the Messengers (of Allâh, i.e. I am not the first Messenger) nor do I know what will be done with me or with you. I only follow that which is revealed to me, and I am but a plain warner.”}(Al-Ahqâf:9) The Islamic Shari’ah applies to all of Allah’s creation, and that includes the Messenger of Allah, despite his high status and position of honor with Allah, since he too follows the laws that Allah revealed to him, and he was not an innovator. He followed Allah’s way and did nothing to contradict it. The fact that Allah is The Creator means that He knows best those who He created. He says: {Should not He Who has created know? And He is the Most Kind and Courteous (to His slaves), the Well-Acquainted (with everything).}(al-Mulk:14) He knows the natural disposition of His slaves, what reforms and what corrupts them, and what benefits and what harms them. None but the maker knows best about what he made. Allah says: {Say, “Do you know better or does Allâh (know better ... that they all were Muslims)?”}(al-Baqarah:140) https://www.path-2-happiness.com/en/the-path-to-happiness-the-remaining-message-characteristics-of-the-islamic-legislation

  5. What is happiness? What, then, is this happiness, and how does one achieve happiness?! Happiness is the constant feeling of elation, tranquility, generosity and joy. This feeling of contentment comes as a result of always having three states: one’s self being in a good state, one’s life being good, and expecting that one’s final abode will be good. With regards to these three states, man starts by asking questions about the self. These questions grow larger as he grows older, and he does not find happiness until he answers the questions which come to his mind: • Who owns this universe and controls all its affairs? • Who created me and created this universe around me? • Who am I? Where do I come from? Why was I created? Where will my destiny take me? https://www.path-2-happiness.com/en/all-people-are-looking-for-happiness-so-where-is-the-path
  6. 1- Emission of Semen It is a thick white liquid which exits in spurts due to sexual stimulation and is followed by a loss of strength. Its scent resembles that of a rotten egg. The need for a ghusl is stated in Allah’s saying: “If you are in a state of janaba (ritual impurity), purify yourself (bathe your whole body).”(Al-Ma’idah:6) And the Prophet’s ﷺ saying: “When you ejaculate, take a ghusl.” [ narrated by Abu Dawud.] Points for Discussion 1- If a person has a wet dream yet doesn’t ejaculate, he does not have to make ghusl. 2- If he wakes up and doesn’t remember having a wet dream, yet he finds semen on himself, clothes, bed, etc. he must take a ghusl. The Prophet ﷺ said, “Water is only from water.” [ narrated by Muslim.] In other words the emission of semen - willfully or unwillfully - necessitates a ghusl. 3- If he feels semen moving in his penis, yet it does not exit, he does not have to make a ghusl. 4- If it exits due to some sort of sickness and not from sexual stimulation, then he does not have to take a ghusl. 5- If his state necessitated a ghusl, and he took a ghusl, but then semen exited immediately after the ghusl, he is not obliged to take another ghusl. He only has to make wudu’. 6- When a person wakes up from sleep and notices wetness on his clothes whose cause he can’t remember, then the following three conditions are possible: a) He is sure that the wetness is semen. Then, it is obligatory on him to take a bath, whether he remembers having a wet dream or not. b) He is sure it is not semen. In this case there is no need to take a bath. The ruling thus will be that of urine (i.e. wudu’). c) He doubts whether it is semen or not, he must then examine the situation and recall what took place. If it occurs to him that it is semen, then it is semen. However, if it occurs to him that it was something else, then he considers it to be something else. But if nothing occurs to him, then it is compulsory (on him) to take a bath so that he can avoid any error. 7-If he sees semen on himself, but cannot remember when it was produced, it is compulsory to take a bath and repeat the Salah (prayer) from the last time he slept. 2. Sexual Intercourse It is the meeting of the male and the female sexual organs. This is by the insertion of the head of the male’s penis into the female’s vagina. This is sexual intercourse even if ejaculation doesn’t occur. The Prophet ﷺ said: “When the circumcised penetrates the circumcised, bathing is compulsory.” [ narrated by At-Tirmidhi.] 3. When a non-believer becomes a Muslim This is because “the Prophet ﷺ ordered Qais Ibn ‘Asim t to take a bath when he became a muslim.” [ narrated by Abu Dawud.] 4. At The End of a Menstrual Cycle or Post-natal Bleeding This is in accordance with the hadeeth related by A’ishah (may Allah be pleased him), when the Prophet ﷺ told Fatimah bint Abi Hubaysh: “When menstruation starts (you should) stop praying, and when it leaves, take a (purificatory) bath, then start praying again.” [ agreed upon.] It’s the consensus of the scholars of Islam that post-natal bleeding is like menstruation. 5. Death This is according to the statement of the Prophet ﷺ when he told those preparing Zaynab (his daughter) for burial: “Wash her three times, five times or more if you think (it is necessary).” [ agreed upon.]

  10. The Pillars of Hajj

    The Pillars of Hajj 1- Ihram: The Prophet ﷺ said: “Deeds are according to intentions and every person will be rewarded according to his intention. Therefore, whosoever has emigrated for the sake of Allah and His Messenger, then his emigration was for Allah and His Messenger. And whosoever emigrated for the sake of a worldly gain, or a woman “whom he desires” to marry, then his emigration is for the sake of that which “moved him” to emigrate.” [ Source: Bukhari.] 2- The Sa’y between as-Safa and al-Marwa: From the Prophet’s statement ﷺ “Perform Sa’y (between them) for indeed Allah has decreed that you perform Sa’y (between them).” [ Source: Ahmad.] 3- Waqfat ‘Arafah (the standing on Arafah) because the Prophet ﷺ said: “Hajj is ‘Arafah.” 4- Tawaaful Ifaadah: Allah said: “…and circumambulate the Ancient House.” (al-Hajj: 29) https://www.islamkingdom.com/en/the-pillars-of-hajj-its-obligatory-aspects-and-supererogatory-acts
  11. As-salaamu 'alaykum. You can break this down very quickly. First, is there any credible hadith that makes a statement about this? From what I've seen there isn't. Please reference one if so. Secondly, we don't worship the Qur'an, nor can anything we do harm Allah nor his message. If writing in the Qur'an is prohibited or discouraged, the only harm it's doing is to ourselves. Thirdly, Allah exalted the Qur'an but Qur'an literally means recitation which is how it was revealed and how many companions first memorized it. Muhammad (s.a.w.) couldn't have written in it nor understood the act of anyone else doing so because he (s.a.w.) was illiterate; so unless someone specifically asked, then there's no ruling that can be given. Ultimately, anything said regarding this is a guess at best and Allah will judge us on our intentions alone. So if you're writing in the Qur'an to increase your knowledge there shouldn't be an issue about it, I actually consider all the needless alternatives to be counter productive to learning as the notations aren't in order or conjunction with the Qur'an's. If you write an ayat down on a spare page without the rest of the Surah you've actually committed a sin that Allah does identify by admonishing those who figuratively tear apart the Qur'an by see separating it's words; granted that's not entirely applicable, but it's far more logical to make notations in the Qur'an rather than writing down a single ayat somewhere else which may separate the context.
  12. A woman’s Mahram

    A middle-aged to elderly woman from Sheba, known for her piety, wants to perform Hajj, but she does not have a Mahram (spouse or permanently unmarriageable relative). There is a wealthy, pious man in the town, who wants to perform Hajj with some of his female Mahrams. Can this woman perform Hajj with that kind man and his female relatives, as she will stay in the company of the women and the man will only watch over, or is she exempted from Hajj due to the lack of a Mahram to accompany her, although she is financially able to go? Please give us a Fatwa on this, as there is a disagreement over this issue among some of our brothers. May Allah bless you. the answer: https://www.islamkingdom.com/en/a-woman’s-mahram
  13. The Holy Quran

    Allah Almighty said about Quran: “This is the Book (the Quran), whereof there is no doubt, guidance to those who are Al-Muttaqoon the pious”
  14. The intention before performing Salah

    The place of the intention is the heart. When a person makes niyyah with his heart, it is good to make niyyah verbally also. If it is not uttered by the tongue, there is nothing wrong with it. http://prayertimes.dawateislami.net
  15. Examining Ayat 57, Surat Zariyat.

    As-Salaam alaikum, In ayat 57 of Surat Zariyat of the Holy Qur'an (51:57), Allah Ta'ala says:-- "No sustenance do I require of them, nor do I require that they should feed Me." This establishes the fact that Almighty Allah is free of needs and by definition beyond the concerns of whether man worships or serves Him or not. Man, however, for his/our own sake, needs to establish a relationship to Allah. This relationship is that of Abudiyyah (servitude)... says the Qur'an:-- "I have only created jinns and men, that they may serve Me" (51:56). Hidden, but discernible in this unique relationship of abject servitude, only to Allah, is the secret of the ultimate freedom of man from all other bondage(s). This servant of Allah, His sincere bondsman, is free of all earthly gods and goddesses... be they of power, wealth, beauty or race, or color. We must only serve Allah Ta'ala and turn to Him for guidance in all our endeavors.

  24. The Prophet's Guardians.

    As-Salaam alaikum, Ali Ibn Abi Talib, may Allah be pleased with him, narrated that the Holy Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, once said that "for every Prophet there were 7 selected guardians (Nujaba' ruqaba), but I have been given 14 instead." When asked as to who they were, he replied: "I myself, my two sons [Hassan and Hussein], Jafar, Hamza, Abu Bakr, Umar, Mus'ab Ibn Umair, Bilal, Salman, Ammar, Abdullah Ibn Mas'ud, Abu Dharr and Miqdad." [Tirmidhi, vol. 11-Bab Manaqib Ahl-Bait]. The secret implied in this of this Hadith is that for every Prophet, it is necessary to have some persons in his company, such that there should be some to acquire some share of wisdom from him, while others receive from him a portion of giving instruction. Others also may take to science of jurisprudence, holy war (Jihad), and other religious matters. The reason behind all this being that every perfection which the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, acquired could thereby be represented in a most distinguished manner.
  25. As-Salaam alaikum, The abbreviated Letter Qaf opens Surat QAF of the Holy Qur'an (chapter 50) ... a number of commentators say that Qaf is a mountain that surrounds the world. In Qisa su'l-anbiya, Sayyadi Ali Ibn Abi Talib, may Allah be pleased with him, was reported as saying: "The earth, as soon as Allah created it, cried out and said, 'O Lord, will You place upon me sons of Adam who commit sins and cast filth upon me?' and it rocked violently. Then Allah fastened it down with mountains and steadied it, and He Created a huge mountain of green emerald-- whence comes the greeness of the sky-called mountain Qaf, encircling the whole earth; and this is that by which Allah swore, saying, " QAAF. By the Glorious Qur'an " (50:1) And Wahab Ibn Munabbih said:-- "Dhu'l-Qarnayn came to mountain Qaf and saw small mountains around it. 'What are these?' he said. 'They are my veins' it replied: 'When Allah Wills that a land should quake, He orders me and I let one of my veins throb and there is an earthquake in the adjoining land.' Dhu'l-Qarnayn said: 'O Qaf, tell me something of the Majesty of Allah.' 'The Majesty of our Lord [Allah] surpasses all description and conception.' 'Tell me the least thing thereof that can be described.' 'Lo, said Mountain Qaf, 'Beyond me, for the distance of 500 years journey, lies a land of snow-mountains which crush against one another and, beyond that, similar mountains of hail: were it not for snow and hail, the world would be consumed by the heat of Hell-fire."
