  1. Pillars Of Umrah

    1- Ihram: Due to the Prophet’s statement ﷺ: “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: The Prophet ﷺ said: “Perform Sa’y (between them); indeed Allah has decreed that you perform Sa’y (between them).” [ Source: Ahmad.] 3- Tawaaf: as Allah, the Most High, said, “…and circumambulate the Ancient House.” source: islamkingdom
  2. Allah Is Al-Hay , Al-Qayoom

    Allah is Al-Hay (the Ever-Living), Al-Qayoom (the Self-Subsisting, the Sustainer of All)... "Allah - there is no deity except Him - the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of existence" (Âl-"Imrân: 2). Allah is Al-Hay (the Ever-Living), Al-Qayoom (the Self-Subsisting, the Sustainer of All) "Allah - there is no deity except Him - the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of existence" (Âl-"Imrân: 2). "Al-Hayy" (the Ever-Living) He has perfect life; He needs no one, and everyone and everything is in need of Him... and everything and everyone is perishable except Him. "Al-Hay, Al-Qayoom; (the Ever-Living One), (the Self-Subsisting, the Sustainer of All)” He is the Ever-Living and Independent Being, He is the Self-Subsisting, the Sustainer of All, managing people"s sustenance and all of their affairs. Al-Qayoom (the Self-Subsisting, the Sustainer of All) He (mighty and majestic is He) exists by Himself, for He is Independent from all of His creatures. Al-Qayoom (the Self-Subsisting, the Sustainer of All) He is the Maintainer of every soul, and knows what it has earned. He records all His slaves’ actions, the situations they may be in, their utterances, and their good and bad deeds, and He will repay them for all of these on the Last Day. Al-Hay (the Ever- Living) includes all the essential attributes of Allah Himself, and Al-Qayoom (the Self-Subsisting, the Sustainer of All) includes all the attributes of His actions (as for Allah to be All-Hearing, All-Knowledgeable etc., He has to be Al-Hay (the Ever-Living). And for Allah to give life and death, and to provide to Whom He wants etc. He has to be Al-Qayoom (the Self-Subsisting, the Sustain of All).) Al-Qayoom (the Self-Subsisting, the Sustainer of All) He enumerates (i.e. records) His slaves" actions. Al-Qayoom (the Self-Subsisting, the Sustainer of All) He fully manages the affairs of each and every creature: He grants them sustenance and organises and governs their lives for them. "Al-Hay, Al-Qayoom; (the Ever-Living One), (the Self-Subsisting, the Sustainer of All)” Allah, the Eternal (Exalted and Glorified is He) Allah is Al-Hay, Al-Qayoom (the Ever-Living One), (the Self-Subsisting, the Sustainer of All). source: islamkingdom
  3. A slave of Allah needs a sanctuary and a retreat with whom he finds security from distress and grief. Man has been created as such and he therefore needs his Lord in every condition he may experience, working to gain His pleasure for he will undoubtedly meet Him.Allah is so generous with His slaves that He allowed them to know Him.If man feels this need for Allah, carries out the duties that have been laid on him, is confident of what Allah has in store for him and also patient with what He decrees for him, Allah makes him a prominent leader among his people, followed by others: “And We made from among them leaders guiding by Our command when they were patient and [when] they were certain of Our signs" (As¬-Sajdah: 24).So Allah made patience and certitude a reason to gain leadership in religion.All creatures have a natural propensity to be connected and close to the Creator (mighty and majestic is He) and also have a natural propensity to love those who are generous to them and grant them favours, and that is Almighty Allah.All provisions other than Iman are transitory, and any support and aid other than Allah will collapse. source: islamkingdom
  4. Visiting the Masjid of the Prophet ﷺ is not part of the conditions of Hajj, and neither is it one of its pillars or obligations; rather it is a recommended act (Sunnah) and can be performed at any time.Furthermore, it is compulsory that the intention for the visit should be to pray in the Masjid, and not to visit the grave. On the authority of Abu Hurairah t, who said that the Prophet ﷺsaid: “No one should journey to any Masjid except for three Masjids: the Haram Masjid, the Prophet’s Masjid and al-Aqsaa Masjid.” [ Source: Muslim.]Shayk al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah said: “If the intention of traveling is to visit the grave of the Prophet ﷺ , but not to pray therein, then the view of the Imams and majority of scholars is that it is neither a legislated nor a commanded act. The ahadeeth about visiting the grave of the Prophet ﷺ are all weak, according to the consensus of the scholars of ahadeeth, rather they are all fabricated and none of the reliable narrators of the Sunan related any of them, nor have any of the imams used any of them as evidence.” [ Majmoo’ al- Fatawa vol.27, pg 26.] source: islamkingdom
  5. Measure Of Zakah Al-Fitr

    Measure of Zakat Al-Fitr A Sa’[ One sa: 2.40kg barley] is to be paid for every individual, and it has to be from man’s food e.g. rice, dates, wheat, in accordance with the hadith of Abu Sa’eed Al-Khudri (may Allah be pleased with him) who said: “We used to pay on the day of Fitr during the time of the Messenger of Allah a Sa’ of food” and he (Abu Sa’eed) said: “And our foods were barley, raisins, (cottage) cheese[ Aqit: dried, curled milk (cottage cheese) used in cooking] and dates.” [ Source: Al Bukhari] Sa’ is estimated by Hanafis as = 3.25 kgs, and for the majority of scholars as = 2.040 kgs It is also estimated as four handfuls of an average sized man. source: islamkingdom
  6. This is the best period to perform Al I’tikaf. This is in accordance with the hadith reported by ‘Aishah, who said: “The Prophet ﷺ used to seclude himself for worship in the last ten days of Ramadan until Allah Almighty took his soul.” [ Source: Bukhari.] Anyone who intended to perform Al I’tikaf would observe Salatus-Subhi on the 21st of the month in the Masjid where he intended to perform Al I’tikaf and would subsequently enter into his seclusion. ‘Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) reported: “The Prophet used to perform Al I’tikaf every year in the month of Ramadan; when he prayed Salatus-Subhi, he would enter the place of his Al I’tikaf.” [ Source: Bukhari.] Al I’tikaf ends with the sunset of the last day of Ramadan. However, it is recommended to delay leaving the Masjid until the early morning of ‘Eid day, because this is what was recorded as being practiced by many of our pious predecessors. source: islamkingdom
  7. 1- Knowing other brothers, loving each other for the sake of Allah and strengthening ties of love; without which, perfect faith would not have been easy to achieve. This is because, there is no path to faith and paradise except by loving for the sake of Allah. 2- Freedom from hypocrisy and the hell fire. This is for someone who meets the initiating Takbeer of every Salat for forty consecutive days. Anas , reported the Messenger of Allah ﷺ as saying: “Whosoever observes Salat for Allah for forty days in congregation, catching the first Takbeer, has gained two freedoms, both of which are written for him: freedom from hell and freedom from hypocrisy.” [ Source: Al-Bukhari.] 3- Facilitating the reunion of Muslims and bringing their hearts together in goodness and righteousness. 4- Solidarity among the Muslims and helping one another in issues affecting them. 5- Demonstrating the religious rites and its strength. 6- Unifying the hearts of the Muslims, as in the same row of Salat there is gathered the White, Black, Arabs, non-Arabs, old, young, rich and the poor, side by side, in a single Masjid, behind one imam, at the same time, towards the same direction and with the same intention. 7- Infuriating the enemies of Allah. This is because the Muslims will not cease to be powerful and invulnerable as long as they uphold the observation of congregational Salat in the Masjid. 8- Eradication of misdeeds, and rising in ranks. It was reported on the authority of Abu Hurairah t, who reported that the Messenger of ﷺ said: “Should I direct you to that by which Allah eradicates sins and raises the levels?” They replied: “Yes, Oh Messenger of Allah.” Then the Prophet said: “Performing ablution when it is disliked, taking many steps to the Masjids, and waiting for Salat one after the other. That is striving in the cause of Allah.” [ Source: Muslim.] 9- Observing Salat in congregation is better than observing it alone by twenty-seven degrees. On the authority of Abdullah ibn Umar t,, the Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “Congregational Salah is better than that observed alone by twenty-seven degrees.” [ Source: Al-Bukhari.] - Congregational Prayer (Salat ) at Home. It is not advised for any individual or congregation to observe Salat at home while a Masjid is close to them. However if the Masjid is far away, and they did not hear the call to prayer, then there is no sin on them if they observe it in congregation at home. source: islamkingdom
  8. 1- Sickness It is permissible for the sick to break fast in Ramadan. Allah Almighty says: “... but if any of you is ill or on a journey, the same number of days (should be made up) from other days” (Al-Baqarah : 184).The sickness that permits the breaking of fast is the one that causes or leads to a more serious pain, if the sick were to fast. 2- Traveling It is permissible for a traveler in the month of Ramadan to break his fast, and it is compulsory on him to pay back the missed days. Allah Almighty says: “... but if any of you is ill or on a journey, the same number of days (should be made up) from other days.” ( Al-Baqarah : 184).The same distance that permits Al-Qasr (reduction of the number of prostrations in prayers) (Salat) also permits the breaking of fast, provided it is known as traveling according to the customs of the people and it is a permissible form of traveling. If, however, it is a form of sinful traveling or a traveling done in order to be free from fasting, then it will be prohibited for him to break his fast.However, if a traveler decides to fast, it will be valid. This is due to the hadeeth reported by Anas ibn Malik who said: “We used to travel (during fasting) with the Prophet ﷺ, and those of us who fasted neither abused nor looked down upon those who broke their fast, nor did those who broke their fast look down upon those who fasted.” [ Source: Bukhari.] However, this permission is upon the condition that fasting is not a burden on him nor a cause of pain for him. If it is, then it will be better for him not to fast. This is because the Prophet ﷺ in one of his journeys, saw a man whose fasting had become burdensome upon him (had been severely weakened) due to the severe heat, and as such people had gathered around him. Thereupon, the Prophet said: “Fasting while on a journey is not part of righteousness.” [ Source: Tirmidhi.]3- Pregnancy and Breastfeeding A pregnant or breastfeeding woman who fears there would be a burden on herself if she fasted may break her fast, and she must pay it back, just like the sick.The Prophet ﷺ said: “Allah Almighty has relieved the traveler of fasting and some parts of Salah (daily prayers), and He relieved the pregnant and the breastfeeding woman of fasting.” [ Source: Bukhari.]However, if she fears the burden on only her child or fetus, then she must pay the missed fasts back and feed one poor person for every missed day. Ibn ‘Abbas said: “As for the pregnant and breastfeeding women, if they fear the burden of fasting on their children, then they must pay it back (the missed fasts) and feed one poor person for every missed day.” [ Source: Abu Dawud.]4- Menstrual and Post-Partum Bleeding But a woman who menstruates or has post-natal bleeding is obligated to break her fast, as it is prohibited for her to fast. If, however, she does fast, it will not be valid; andshe will still have to pay back the equivalent fasts for the period she missed. When ‘Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) was asked why a menstruating woman pays back the missed fast, but not the missed prayers, she said: “That (i.e. post natal and menstrual bleeding) used to befall us and we were ordered to pay back missed fasts, but not missed Salah (prayers).” [ Agreed upon.] source: islamkingdom

  10. Minds are obliged to acknowledge that there is only One God, as if there were two gods – just for argument sake - the question remains: what would happen if there was a conflict and disagreement between them and each of them wanted to have his own way?!! The one wanted something one way and the other another. There would inevitably be one who would win, and thus the other would consequently become powerless. Can a god be powerless?!! It certainly remains a reality then that there is only One God. The Almighty says: {91. No son (or offspring or children) did Allah beget, nor is there any ilah (god) along with Him; (If there had been many gods), behold, each god would have taken away what he had created, and some would have tried to overcome others! Glorified be Allah above all that they attribute to Him!{ }92. All-Knower of the unseen and the seen! Exalted be He over all that they associate as partners to Him!}(Al-Mu’minun:91-92) SOURCE:Islamkingdom
  11. 1- Bathing and perfuming before assuming Ihram. 2- Wearing a wrapper (garment) and cover cloth which are white. 3- Saying the Talbiyah, starting when assuming Ihram and continuing until stoning Jamaratul aqabah. 4- The arrival circumambulation for those performing Ifrad or Hajj al-Qiraan. 5- Raml in the first three rounds during the arrival circumambulation. 6- Observing al-Idh’tiba’ during the circumambulation of arrival, and this is done by passing the cover cloth under the right armpit and placing the ends of the cloth on one’s left shoulder. 7- Spending the eve of Arafah at Mina. 8- Kissing the Black Stone. 9- Praying Maghrib and Isha’ prayers merged and advanced at Muzdalifah. 10- Staying at Al-Mash’ar Al-Haram (the revered landmark) in Muzdalifa from Fajr until sunrise, if possible, otherwise it is acceptable to stay at any place in Muzdalifah. Supererogatory acts of Hajj: Whoever omits a supererogatory act (sunnah) of Hajj has not committed any violation and his Hajj is still valid. The obligatory acts of Hajj Whoever omits an obligation must offer blood (sacrifice an animal) to make up for this omission. Source: Islamkingdom
  12. O Allah, You are the bestower of blessings... the bestower of wishes... the bestower of favours. Bestow on me satisfaction... bestow on me safety... bestow on me happiness and your gentle care… Be generous to us, O Allah, and favour us, for You are the Most Generous, Most Magnanimous and the Most Bounteous One.. &"And grant us from Yourself mercy. Indeed, You are the Bestower&" (Âl-&"Imrân: 8). , “Verily, Allah is generous and He loves generosity. He loves nobility of character and He detests low morality” (Narrated by at-Tirmidthi). &"Al-Wahab&" (the Bestower) He bestows upon whoever He wishes, and withholds from whoever He wishes. Aj-Jawad (the Magnanimous, the One Who Gives Generously) His generosity is unrestricted and limitless, and His endowments are unstoppable. He says to anything: &"&"Be,&" and it is&" (Al-Baqarah: 117). &"Al-Wahab&" (the Bestower) He bestows physical and moral sustenance, and is generous with His favours and blessings. A part of those favours and blessing are the good and beneficial ideas, knowledge, guidance, being able to do good, having one’s prayers answered, and similar beneficial sustenances that Allah grants to many people &"Al-Wahab&" (the Bestower) He bestows and withholds. He raises and lowers. He joins and disconnects. All good is in His Hand and He is Al-Qadeer (the Omnipotent). He is Allah, Al-Wahab (the Bestower), Aj-Jawad (the Magnanimous, the One Who Gives Generously)… source: islamkingdom
  13. When Allah created all the children of Adam, He ordered them (the angels) to prostrate to him. {And surely, We created you (your father Adam) and then gave you shape (the noble shape of a human being), then We told the angels, “Prostrate to Adam”, and they prostrated, except Iblîs (Satan), he refused to be of those who prostrate.}(Al-A’râf:11) Allah created man and honored him. He preferred him over many of what He had initially created. Allah, the Exalted, says: {And indeed We have honoured the Children of Adam, and We have carried them on land and sea, and have provided them with At-Taiyibât (lawful good things), and have preferred them above many of those whom We have created with a marked preference.}(Al-Isrâ’:70) Therefore, he is an honored and preferred creature, since he was favored and revered by his Lord with the following: 1-Dignity and preference in his physical constitution: Allah, the Exalted, says: {Verily, We created man of the best stature (mould)}(At-Tin:4)Allah has created him in the best stature; with a well-organized body and with each part fitting in with the other, and also with the blessings of the mind, and the ability to think, utter and hear. He has created him in the best form and shape. 2-Dignity and preference in having the land and sea subjected to him: This includes the atmosphere, and this confirms how Allah has honored man in the way explained above. First; because Allah, the Almighty, has subjected all these entities to man, and singled him out from the rest of His creation. This serves as evidence that in this world man takes the position similar to a president who is followed or a king who is obeyed, and everything else is like his flock which follows behind him. Allah, the Almighty, says: {And indeed We have honoured the Children of Adam, and We have carried them on land and sea}(Al-Isrâ’:70) Rather, Allah, the Exalted, tells us in His book that He has made whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth subject to man, as a means of honoring him. And has subjected to you all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth; it is all as a favour and kindness from Him. {Verily, in it are signs for a people who think deeply.}(Al-Jâthiya:13) 3-The provision of the good and lawful things: Allah has granted humans the privilege to eat whatever he pleases of the lawful things. He gave food many benefits, and He made the food of man plentiful and full of variety in comparison to that which the animals eat. Allah has honored man by blessing him with all that through His Grace and Generosity (Glorified be He). {Who has made the earth a resting place for you, and the sky as a canopy, and sent down water (rain) from the sky and brought forth therewith fruits as a provision for you. Then do not set up rivals unto Allah (in worship) while you know (that He Alone has the right to be worshipped).}(Al-Baqarah:22) 4-Preference over much of what He has created (Glorified be He). Hence, man senses his dignity, greatness, stature, and his magnitude due to the honor that Allah gave him. As man is not considered a small and insignificant creation in the world of living matter – he is not considered a small trivial thing as he is considered when he is measured with those materialistic scales which considers the earth itself as a small trivial thing, where one atomic bomb can wipe off two hundred thousand people, as happened in Hiroshima. The significance of man in the view of Islam lies in being held in high esteem by Allah. When we learn about the creation through the verses of the Qur’an, the prostration of the universe to Adam and then the expulsion of Satan by Allah due to him being the only entity who refused to prostrate to Adam, we realize just how important this basis is at the time when humanity can no longer find salvation from its predicament, because of the imposition of the strong on the weak, except through this path - the path of the Qur’an which grants man his freedom, his dignity and his full freedom of choice. On the path of mercy and honor, it is not acceptable to insult a human being, disrespect him, or ridicule him. Allah, the Almighty says: {O you who believe! Let not a group scoff at another group, it may be that the latter are better than the former; nor let (some) women scoff at other women, it may be that the latter are better than the former, nor defame one another, nor insult one another by nicknames. How bad is it, to insult one’s brother after having Faith [i.e. to call your Muslim brother (a faithful believer) as: “O sinner”, or “O wicked”, etc.]. And whosoever does not repent, then such are indeed Zâlimûn (wrong-doers, etc.).}(Al-Hujurât:11) There is no superiority of an Arab over a non-Arab, or of a non-Arab over an Arab; or of a white person over a black one, or a black person over a white one, except in piety. Truly, the noblest among you is he who is the most pious. Allah, the Almighty, says: {O you who believe! Avoid much suspicions, indeed some suspicions are sins. And spy not, neither backbite one another. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? You would hate it (so hate backbiting) . And fear Allâh. Verily, Allâh is the One Who accepts repentance, Most Merciful.}(Al-Hujurât:13) The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said: “Verily, Allah does not look at your appearance or your wealth, but rather He looks at your hearts and your actions.”[Muslim] SOURCE: islamkingdom
  14. Allah, An-Nur (the Light)[1] Allah, An-Nur (the Light) &"Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth&" (An-Nûr: 35). Allah, “An-Nur (the Light)” He enlightens the hearts of those who have knowledge of Him with Iman and guidance. Allah, “An-Nur (the Light)” Every darkness is overcome by the light He gives, which illuminates the heavens and the earth, and He illuminates the path for those who are proceeding towards Him, as well as their hearts. Allah gives light and His veil is light, if He lifts that veil, the sublimity of His countenance will burn all that His sight reaches. Allah, An-Nur (the Light) [1] An-Nur; Scholars differ about whether this is a Name of Allah or not Source: Islamkingdom
  15. 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 Salat(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.] source : islamkingdom
  16. Atheism And Its Dangers

    Atheism is the denial of the existence of the Creator (mighty and majestic is He), whether this is through a sick pattern of thought and morbid point of view, or just out of aversion, obstinacy and stubbornness. It is a disease that affects the mind, and results in an imbalance of thinking and darkness in the heart that makes an atheist unable to think properly and makes him have a misguided heart. He, therefore, is only able to recognize and see concrete materialism. As a result, he applies the ideas of the materialistic school of thought on humans and their beliefs, which lead to his suffering and going further astray. An atheist believes that Man is a mere piece of material on which materialistic laws is applied.Having Iman in Allah, Who is the only god who deserves to be worshipped, is the quality which is honoured the most, has the highest status and receives the most rewardIman ash-Shafa&"i All that poses a threat in that it reduces the reality of man to sheer materialism and a harsh rationality that is deprived of the pleasures and joys of the soul. An atheist- as long as he does not believe in the existence of Allah- does whatever he wants, whenever he wants, without being scared of any torment and without having any feelings of reverence towards any god. This leads to corruption and the eventual destruction of the human natural disposition, in addition to him being a disbeliever of Allah (mighty and majestic is He)or having a tendency to divert the acts of worship, which should be directed only to Almighty Allah, to others. We, therefore, find that there is an abundance of suicides in the history of atheists, whether they were intellectuals or poets. History is full of such incidents and studies have highlighted this. In a World Health Organisation (WHO) study carried out by two experts, Dr. Jose Manuel and the researcher Alessandra Fleishman, about the relationship between religion and suicide, it was proven that the majority of people who take their lives are atheists.

  18. Allah Ar-Rahman, Ar-Raheem

    &"He is Allah, Ar-Rahman (the Most Gracious), Ar-Raheem (the Most Merciful).&"He has ordained for Himself to be All-Merciful. His Mercy prevails over His Wrath. His Mercy envelops everything…. &"Indeed, the mercy of Allah is near to the doers of good&" (Al-A&"râf: 56).&"Ar-Rahman (the Most Gracious), Ar-Raheem (the Most Merciful), Al-Barr (the Gracious Benefactor), Al-Kareem (the Generous One), Aj-Jawad (the Magnanimous), Ar-Ra&"ouf (the Compassionate), Al-Wahab (the Bestower)&": All of these names have a similar meaning, for they all indicate Allah&"s Attributes of Mercy, Benevolence, Generosity and Magnanimity. They also indicate the vastness of His Mercy which encompasses the entire existence according to the requirements of His Wisdom. Allah grants the greater share of this Mercy to the Mu&"meneen. He the Exalted says: &"But My mercy encompasses all things. So I will decree it (especially) for those who fear Me&" (Al-A&"râf: 156). The blessings and favours granted to us by Allah are all proofs of His Mercy, Generosity and Magnanimity. In fact all forms of good in this world and in the Hereafter are signs of His Mercy.&"He is Allah, Ar-Rahman (the Most Gracious), Ar-Raheem (the Most Merciful).&" He is more Merciful to us than even our own mothers. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said the following pointing to a woman who was sitting and breastfeeding her baby: &"Do you think that this lady can throw her son into the fire?&" We replied: &"No, if she has the power not to throw him (into the fire).&" The Prophet then said: &"Allah is more merciful to His slaves than this lady is to her son&" (Narrated by al-Bukhari). source: islamkingdom

He has no partner, to Him belongs all that exists, and to Him belongs the Praise, and He is over all things (in His power).&" (La ilaha illallah, wahdahu la sharika Lahu, Lahul-Mulku wa Lahul-Hamdu, wa Huwa ala kulli shai’in qadir)’” (Narrated by At-Tirmidthi)He (peace be upon him) also said: “When prophet Nuh was dying, he told his son: ‘I will give you some instructions. I will command you to do two things and I will forbid you from doing two things.

  23. Hajj On Behalf Of Another

    A person who cannot perform Hajj or ‘Umrah as a result of old age, permanent illness, or some weakness in his body due to which he cannot make the journey, should have somebody perform Hajj and ‘Umrah on his behalf, and this is valid for him even if he regains his health after his representative had already entered into the state of Ihram for Hajj or ‘Umrah. On the authority of al-Fadl Ibn ‘Abbas t: A woman from al-Khath’am said, “O Messenger of Allah, the obligation from Allah to perform Hajj came upon my father while he is very old and incapable of riding a camel.” The Prophet ﷺ said: “Perform Hajj on his behalf.” [ Source: At-Tirmidhi.]There are numerous conditions stipulated for the person performing Hajj on behalf of another:1- He must have met the aforementioned conditions of Hajj.2- He must have first performed Hajj for himself. When a person performs Hajj on behalf of another, but has not performed it for himself, such a Hajj on behalf of another person is not valid; thus the Hajj he performed for the other person then becomes for him, and it is considered as a valid Hajj for him in Islam. Evidence for this is what was confirmed on the authority of Ibn ‘Abbas t: The Prophet ﷺ heard a man saying; “Labbayka on behalf of Shubruma,” the Prophet ﷺ asked: “Who is Shubruma?” He replied: “A brother or a relative of mine.” The Prophet then asked: “Have you performed Hajj for yourself?” He replied: “No.” So the Prophet ﷺ said: “Perform Hajj for yourself, then perform (Hajj) on behalf of Shubruma.” [ Source: Abu Dawud.] Source: islamkingdom
