May Allah (s.w.t) Bless the Efforts put into this book by "Shiekh Hafiz Ibn Ahmed Al Hakami" and "'Ali As-Sayed Al-Halawani" for translating it.

 

:D

 

I will Insha'Allah be posting one question a day for u guys and gurls to ponder upon its meaning and implement those into your daily life.

 

 

This one is for 2day.

 

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem.

 

 

Q 1: What is the first (religious) obligation on worshippers?

 

A--- The first religious obligation on worshippers is to realize the purpose

for which Allah the Almighty created them; and for which He took their

covenant and sent them His Messengers and Books; and for which He

created this present life, the Hereafter, Paradise and Hell-fire; and for

which the Inevitable would come true; and the Event would befall; and

for which the Balance is set and the Records fly; and for which there

would be either happiness or misery; and according to which the lights

would be divided, for any to whom Allah gives not light, there will be no

light for him!

I know the purpose of our life, to worship Allah. But a question I still grappel with is why did Allah created us. I know he created us to worship him, but WHY did he create us to worship him?

Allah (SWT) says (interpretation of the meaning):

 

“Who has created death and life that He may test you which of you is best in deed. And He is the All‑Mighty, the Oft‑Forgivingâ€

 

[al-Mulk 67:2]

 

“O mankind! Worship your Lord (Allaah), Who has created you and those before you so that you may become al-muttaqoon (the pious).â€

 

[al-Baqarah 2:21]

 

“Whoever goes right, then he goes right only for the benefit of his ownself. And whoever goes stray, then he goes astray to his own loss…â€

 

[al-Isra’ 17:15]

For todays post :

 

Q 2: What is that thing for which Allah innovated the Creation?

 

 

 

A ---Allah the Almighty says: {And We created not the heavens and

the earth, and all that is between them, for mere play. We created

them not except with truth (i.e. to examine and test those who

are obedient and those who are disobedient and then reward the

obedient ones and punish the disobedient ones), but most of them

know not}. (Ad-Dukhan, 38-39)

He says also: {And We created not the heaven and the earth and

all that is between them without purpose! That is the

consideration of those who disbelieve!}. (Sad. 27)

He says also: {And Allah has created the heavens and the earth

with truth, in order that each person may be recompensed what

he has earned,

and they will not be wronged}.(Al-Jathiyah, 22)

He says also: {And I (Allah) created not the jinn and mankind

except that they should worship Me (Alone). I seek not any

provision from them (i.e. provision for themselves or for My

creatures) nor do I ask that they should feed Me (i.e. feed

themselves or My creatures). Verily, Allah is the All-Provider,

owner of Power, the Most Strong}. (Ad-Dhariyat, 56-58)

In fact just to add one more thing, Allah created us out of mercy, is the way I see it. He gave us an easy outline for life which leads to the amazing conclusion, and that is our goal, and it is what we strive for, and Allah promised it to the believers.

 

So yes, He didn't create us in idle sport. And the whole system of life proves that.

 

By the way, jazaakum Allahu khayran brother for starting this topic. Are you using peoples' responses to come up with the next FAQ? Or do you already have them made up? In any case this is a wonderful idea, masha'Allah.

Brother none of the credit should go to me, i am just helping out my brothers and sisters with questions they would ask on a daily basis, so the best way to tackle such problems is to have a thread which would cover all the aspects relating to IslamIC Belief. Its was my Jaan "Sister_Truth" who inspired after she and i discussed on such matters :D

 

 

4 todays post:

 

 

Q 3: What does the word `Abd (worshipper) mean?

A--- The word Abd* means the subdued or subjugated. This meaning

encompasses all sorts of creation: higher and lower, rational and

reasonless, animate and inanimate, dynamic and static, apparent and

hidden, believing and disbelieving, and pious and dissolute, etc.; all of

which are created by Allah he Almighty. They are subjected to Him, and

managed by Him Alone. Moreover, all of them have a limit and

destination and each one runs (its course) or an appointed term. Such is

the judgment and ordering of (Him), the Exalted in Power, the

Omniscient. And if the intended sense is the modest God-loving

worshiper), in this case it refers only to the believing men and women

who are Allah's honorable slaves and pious godly ones; on them shall be

no fear, nor shall they grieve

 

 

*The Arabic word' Abd means a male slave, a slave of Allah the Almighty. (Translator)

Q 5: When can a deed be an act of worship?

 

 

 

A--- If there are two things: perfect love (for Allah) along with perfect

subjection (to Him). Allah Almighty says: {But those who believe, love

Allah more (than anything else)}. (Al-Baqarah, 165)

Allah the Almighty says: {Verily those who live in awe for fear of

their Lord}. (Al-Mu'minun , 57)

Allah the Almighty gathered the two things in the following verse that

reads, {Verily, they used to hasten on to do good deeds, and they

used to call on Us with hope and fear, and used to humble

themselves before Us}. (Al-Anbiya', 90)

Q 6: What can tell that Allah's slave loves his Lord, the Almighty?

 

 

A--- What can tell is that, one should love what is loved by Allah and

dislike what is disliked by Him; he should act on His Orders and avoid His

Prohibitions; he should be with those who love Allah, and show severe

enmity to His enemies. That is why love and hatred for the sake of Allah

are the most affirmed signs of Iman (Faith).

Q 7: How could Allah's slaves know what He loves?

 

 

A--- They know it through the coming of Messengers and the Revelation

of the Heavenly Scriptures that contain the ordainments and prohibitions

of Allah the Almighty. Thus; He presented His irrefutable proof and

showed His infinite wisdom to all mankind. Allah the Almighty says:

{Messengers as bearers of good news as well as of warning in

order that mankind should have no plea against Allah after the

(coming of) Messengers}. (An-Nisa', 165)

He says: {Say (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him) to mankind):

If you (really) love Allah then follow me,* Allah will love you and

forgive you your sins. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful}.

(Al 'Imran, 31)

 

* Accept Islamic Monotheism, follow the Qur'an and the Sunnah. (Translator)

Q 8: How many are the conditions of worship?

 

 

A ---They are three.

First: Sincere determination which is a condition that goes with the act

of worship itself.

 

Second: Sincerity of intention.

 

Third: Compatibility with Islamic Law (Shari 'ah) ordained by Allah.

 

The later two represent conditions for accepting an act of worship.

Q 9: What does "Sincerity of determination" mean?

 

A--- It means warding off lethargy and laziness, and exerting one's effort

in making his words go with his deeds. Allah the Almighty says: {O you

who believe! Why do you say that which you do not do? Most

hateful it is with Allah that you say that which you do not do}.

Q 10: What does "Sincerity of intention"mean?

 

 

A ---It means that all the words and deeds of Allah's slave made manifest

and concealed, must be for nothing save to seek the Countenance of

Allah, the Most High. Allah the Almighty says: (And they were

commanded not, but that they should worship Allah, and worship

none but Him Alone]}. (Al-Bayyinah, 5)

He says: {And who has (in mind) no favor from anyone to be paid

back. Except to seek the Countenance of his Lord, the Most High}.

(Al-Lail, 19-20)

He says: {We feed you seeking Allah's Countenance only. We wish

for no reward, nor thanks from you}. (Al-Insan, 9)

He says: {Whosoever desires (by his deeds) the reward of the

Hereafter, We give him increase in his reward, and whosoever

desires the reward of this world (by his deeds), We give him

thereof (what is decreed for him), and he has no portion in the

Hereafter}. (Ash-Shura, 20)

Q 11: What is the only religion man is ordered to embrace?

 

 

A ---It is Pure Islamic Monotheism (Worshipping Allah Alone

and nothing else); the religion of Ibrahim [Abraham] (Peace be upon

him). Allah, Most High says: {Truly, the religion with Allah is Islam}.

(Al' Imran, 19)

He says: {Do they seek other than the religion of Allah (the true

Islamic Monotheism worshipping none but Allah Alone), while to

Him submitted all creatures in the heavens and the earth,

willingly or unwillingly}. (Al' Imran, 83)

He says: {And who turns away from the religion of Ibrahim

(Abraham) (i.e. Islamic Monotheism) except him who befools

himself?}.

(Al-Baqarah, 130)

He says: {And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will

never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of

the losers}. (Al 'Imran, 85)

He says: {Or have they partners with Allah (false gods) who have

instituted for them a religion which Allah has not ordained?}.

(Ash-Shura, 21)
