Intersting facts about Islam

There are more muslims in India than the combined population of Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Palestine and the whole of the Arabian Peninsula.

 

 

 

 

The following English words are borrowed from Arabic: Algebra, Zero, Cotton, Sofa, Rice, Candy, Safron, Balcony. And even 'alchohol' derives from Arabic : al-kuhl meaning powder. These are just a few mentioned here.

 

 

 

 

The first treatise on smallpox and measles was written by Abu Bakr alrazi (c.864-925,known to Europe as Rhazes). (Due to this) Inoculation agianst smallpox became a common practise in muslim lands. Despite this , Scientific text book credit the invention of a smallpox vaccine to Edward Jenner.(1749-1823).

 

 

 

 

Early Oxbridge students studied books written by muslims on mathematics, medicine, chemistry, optics and astronomy.

 

 

 

 

Adelard of Bath (a city in the UK) was a leading scholar of the middle ages. what made him famous was translating the word of muslim scientists from Arabic to latin!

 

 

 

 

The 1860 city records of Cardiff (UK) show a masjid in operation in a converted building at 2 Glynrhondda St. Yemani sea men on their trips between Aden (in Yemen) and Cardiff founded this masjid.

 

 

 

 

The first purpose built masjid is claimed to be in Woking (South of England) with money provided by the ruler of Bhopal, in India (the Shah Jehan masjid was built in 1889).

 

 

 

 

The Islamic calender is based on the phases of the moon, with it being approximately 11 days shorter than the 365 days of the year in the Julien calender. Hence, the dates of our festivals move through the year.

 

 

 

 

The grand doors of our prophets (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) masjid in Medina weigh 2 and half tonnes each! Enormous quantities of "sag wood" was gathered from all over the world and shipped to the united kingdom to be dryed in computerised furnaces (the traditional drying process would have taken many years!). Even then , it took 5 months to dry the wood! the wood was then shipped to Barcelona (Spain), Where the main body of the doors where made. And finally the French even paid their little part, as the brass ornamentation was carried out in the city of Roi (France). Next time you visit the holy masjid, keep this entire in mind!

 

 

 

 

The Zam Zam well came into existance at the time of prophets Ibrahim and Ismail (alayhum salam). It then "dissapeared" for nearly 26 centuries (2600 years) due to the certain events and was rediscovered and dug by the grandfather of our beloved prophet (salAllahu alayhi wasalam). The location of the well was revealed to him in a dream.

The roof top of our prophet's (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) masjid in Madina is disigned to be strong enough to carry addtional floors in the future.

Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullahee wa Barakatu

 

The Messenger of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala, Nabi Muhammad salla Allahu alayhi wassallam, saw Prophet and Messenger Moses alayhissalam in his grave.

 

The Messenger of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala, Prophet Muhammad, meet with all the prophets in Jerusalam and lead them in congregational prayer.

 

There is no ill-feeling among any of the prophet, they are all brothers and they love to compete with each other in goodness, a competition of love. If we insult one prophet, we insult all of them because every single of them feels hurt when one of his brother is insulted.

 

Thanks to Moses alayhissalam we only have to pray five times a day. If Moses did not care about us, we would have to pray 50 daily prayers.

 

We live on earth. This earth is part of a greater system, the solar system. The solar system is part of a greater system, the Milky Way galaxy. The milky way galaxy is part of an even greater system. All the galaxies and stars are within the lowest heaven. The lowest heaven is the first heaven. Above the first heaven is a second heaven crowded with angels. Above the second heaven is the third heaven crowded with angels. Above the third heaven is the fourth heaven filled with angels. Above the fourth heaven is the fifth heaven filled with angels. Above the fifth heaven is the sixth heaven moaning because of the crowd of worshipping angels. Above the sixth heaven is the seventh heaven which is filled with angels and in which the House, Baitul-Mamoor is located. Above the the seventh heaven is Paradise, Jannah. There are countless levels above each other. The highest level is Al-Waseela the level reserved for Muhammad Salla Allahu Alayhi wa Sallam. Above al-Waseela is the kursy of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala. Above the Kursy is the water, the water which is streaming through Jannah in the river of the Prophet, Al-Kawthar. Above the water is the Throne of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala.

 

Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala is above the Throne in a manner that suits his majesty.

 

The stars and planets etc. are created as adornment for us to show the miracles of the creation and as tools.

Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullahee wa Barakatu

 

 

 

Faith should be balanced with good expectations that Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala is the Most Merciful and with fear that Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala is the Most Severe in Chastisement and Punishment.

 

If we have too much fear then this can lead to despair which is an imbalance, and if we have too much hope then we become lazy and it may lead to indifference and heedlessness which is also an imbalance.

 

Patience need to be balanced with gratitude. In times of ease we show gratitude and in times of hardship we show patience.

 

Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala bestowed upon us eyes, ears, and minds, so that we may be grateful.

 

Shaytaan is the Accursed and we take him as our enemy.

 

Beware!!!! If Shaytaan does not succeed to lead us to bad deeds, then he will try to prevent us from doing good deeds.

 

 

 

Here is something to soften our hearts (The Fear Side):

 

1. The primary dish in Hellfire is a fruit from the tree Zaqqum. If you eat it, it does not nourish you nor does it satisfy your hunger. It juice is like scalding molten brass that melts everything that is inside your body.

 

2. In Hellfire, people drink boiling oil. When the cup is coming close to their mouthes, their lips will melt away due to its heat, but they still are going to drink this hot oil.

 

3. In Hellfire, people are going to drink dark boiling mercury.

 

4. The garment of the people of hellfire is made of molten copper and as a hat they wear a dress that pours scalding water over their heads continuously.

 

5. The pain and suffering in hellfire only gets worse with the passage of time, while the pleasure of Paradise gets better with the passage of time and that is for an infinite amount of time.

 

6. The least punishment in hellfire is for a man who is standing on an amber which is heated by the fire of hell. He is not surrounded by the fire nor does the fire even touch the body. However, the heat will cause his brain to boil.

 

7. The fire of Jahannam is black similar to a black hole.

 

8. Shaytaan will appear to you during when you die right before you enter into barzakh and before the moment your tawbah is unaccepted. He knows that you are dying and he will put his effort for you, because he knows that this is his last chance to mislead you. Shaytaan and his accomplice shayateen for example may assume the personality and features of kuffar parents of a Muslim and his parents will say that they found their religion to be the true one and that they are already forgiven and in Paradise etc, so that you may believe them. But don't be deceived because this is a trick of Shaytaan to lead you away from the truth in the last moment of your life.

 

9. The Fire of Hell is hellish hot.[using large font size is not allowed]

Attachment of this Dunya and the Hereafter

 

Nowadays we are soo attached to this Dunya,stick to it like glue.

We act as if we will live forever and ever and ever.And there is no Hereafter.

 

Why do we bulid up so much for this Dunya when it will not benefit us?

 

Thing is picture this,your in a waiting room about to take a journey,if I said paint the room,put EXPENSIVE stuff in there you'll think I'm mad right?

 

You'll be like no never since you will leave that waiting room.You will have the journey ahead in mind.As time ticks by second by second you wait in the room.

 

See this dunya is our waiting room so why decorate it with pointless things,we should think about the journey ahead which is the Hereafter.Bulid towards the Hereafter with our good deeds.When we face death will our family,money,42 inch plasma T.V. come with us?

Noop thats left behind.

 

The things which will come with us is our deeds,will they be enough for Jannah?

 

Allah knows best.

 

Time is ticking and yet we love to abuse it.A second could be the difference between Hell and Jannah,so we should do things for the sake of Allah.

Please Allah,remember Allah,Love Allah.

 

This life compared to the Hereafter is like comparing a water droplet to an ocean.

 

Why do we love to take full pleasure out of a tiny droplet?

 

This life will come to an end.The Hereafter is eternal.

 

All good things need working on,Jannah will never fall into our laps,we must go to it and strive for it with our hearts.

 

You may not live tomorrow,make the most of today. . . . .

 

How can we be attached to the Hereafter?

 

1)Have strong intentions

2)Seek Knowledge

3)Read/Act upon Quran and Sunnah

4)Show good character

 

Jannah is there if you wait it,do you want it?

Oppression is darkness on the Day of Judgement.

 

People of sleeping an wake up when they die.

 

Those who feel safe from the punishment of hellfire are the losers.

 

 

 

Jihaad against the Nafs (desires) and Shaytaan are the greater jihaad, while the physiological struggle is the lesser jihaad. There are other forms of jihaad such as jihaad against wealth and social jihaad. However, fighting in the battlefield is the highest jihaad, because we know that the trials and tribulations are the most severe during warfare inmidst the battlefield. Therefore, the jihaad against nafs, shaytaan and the physical suffering is at the limits or even beyond that.

 

Example: A brother is lying in his bed at home in time of peace and there is a box of donuts on the table. The brother is on diet lying on his bed.

Jihaad against nafs: In his heart, he desires to eat the donut on the table with the intention that this will be the last donut for tonight.

Jihaad against Shaytaan: Shaytaan whispers in his mind that he does not need this diet and if he does not eat then this may affect the salah or worship. And he beautifies this donut in front of his eyes.

Jihaad against Physical Trial: The brothers feels his stomachache or if he holds the donut in his hands the donut may melt and cause mess or his hand become heavy, so this may lead him to eat it.

Jihaad against wealth: The brother remembers how much this donut costed, so he may think that it is a waste if I don't eat it now.

Social Jihaad: People may tell him to eat it. Pessimists may tell him that he will not loose weight anyways.

 

Example: A brother is fighting in a battlefield

Jihaad against nafs: Out of fear he might run away, because of the bombs exploding everywhere, this may lead the brother to run away from the battle. One of the 7 Greatest Major Sins.

Jihaad against Shaytaan: Shaytaan may whisper into his mind that what he is doing is terrorism and if he does this or that then he is a murderer or a khwarij, this may lead the brother to run away.

Jihaad against Physical Suffering: The pain due to injuries and burns, the complete exhaustion and the psychological suffering are the most severe in battlefield, this may lead someone to run away.

Jihaad against Wealth: You may loose you wealth while in battlefield and you may be half-hearted in the battlefield thinking too much about the financial situation at home.

Social jihaad: People may reject you because you fight in the battlefield. They may look down at you and society may discriminate you for this.

 

We can all see that the second brother is going much more severe trials than the first brother. Therefore, the struggle and striving against the trials and tribulations of the second brother is the highest.

Jannah is surrounded with hardships lots and lots of them,Jannah goes against human wishes,is Jannah worth it?

 

Ok well nothing comes easy in life and nothing will fall into your lap apart from air.So you have to work for it,strive for it.

Be strong physically and most importantly mentally to get there.Success won't come to you,you must go to success.

Hardships are wonderful my heart craves for more and more,why?

 

Cause hardships are:

 

1)A Blessing

2)Make one stronger

3)Make one more pious and closer to Allah

4)Remove sin

5)Get sweetness of faith by sabr/patience.

6)Elevate ones rank in Jannah.

 

Hell is surrounded with desires and is the downhill path,its like a vacuum sucking you down all the time.

 

Thing is Allah has given us all weapons and tools to make the path to Jannah easier,what is that path?

 

In one word--Islam

 

To reach Jannah we must please Allah.

 

Tips to increase Iman:

 

1)Seek knowledge

2)Read Quran

3)Read extra nafal prayers

4)Strong intentions to please Allah

5)Follow the Quran and Sunnah of the Prophet(saw)

 

Do everything for the sake of Allah only

Blessings. . .

 

Oook here goes,blessings well we are full of them and surrounded by them soo much that we take them for granted these days,abuse them and don't think of them much,sad isn't it?

 

If a best friend gives you your favourite present and surprises you with something special worth so much we would want to pay them back right and thank them for their kindness.And try and match their kindness.Thing is our best friend is Allah who has bestowed us with so much and we just abuse His gifts and presents,why?

 

How is your best friend Bob different from Allah?

 

Well we sin day by day and its amazing isn't it that Allah still allows us to sleep peaceful at night.

We neglect deen keep attached to dunya and still Allah keeps giving us more blessings and love.

 

So in other words,we abuse,abuse,abuse,neglect.Allah gives,gives,gives and loves.

 

We should be ashamed of ourselves.

 

Every breath is a blessing,breathe in and then out.2 Blessings right?

 

What if we couldn't breathe in or breathe out for a bit?

 

We would die right?

 

How much do we breathe everyday?

 

A lot right?

 

So many blessings just linked with our breathing.Thats a wonderful blessings in itself.So if we were to count the other blessings by Allah,could we do it?

Could someone excellent at maths do it?

 

Not even close or near!

 

Its by Allah's mercy I'm writing this,its by Allah's mercy your able to read this.Thank Allah,THANK Allah.

 

We will never be able to match Allah's mercy with thanks,but why don't we even try?

 

Whats wrong with us?

 

Forget the other blessings,lets try match just the blessings of breathing in and out.

See just that comes to a massive number.What does it mean?

 

Well it means that for every breath we take we should use it wisely and not abuse it like we do.

Easiest way to make the most of it is by staying in rememberance of Allah.Subhanallah with each breath,alhumdulilah with each breath,try it?

 

We have become extremely ungrateful to Allah so its time we change ourselves before its soo late and the acoount comes down heavy on us.

 

If we thank Allah,He will bestow more blessings etc upon us.

 

The gift of eyesight,

the gift of hearing,

the gift of good health,

the gift of friends,

how much do each of them cost to get back?

 

Money can't buy those blessings,they are priceless.

 

Think about it?

Here an Amazing Fact :sl:

 

Previously, humans did not know that plants too have male and female gender distinctions. Botany states that every plant has a male and female gender. Even the plants that are unisexual have distinct elements of both male and female.

 

“‘And has sent down water from the sky.’ With it have We produced diverse pairs of plants each separate from the others.â€

A Fact ..

 

In early times, people believed that the earth was flat. For centuries, men were afraid to venture out too far, for fear of falling off the edge! Sir Francis Drake was the first person who proved that the earth is spherical when he sailed around it in 1597.

 

Consider the following Qur’anic verse regarding the alternation of day and night:

 

“Seest thou not that Allah merges Night into Day and He merges Day into Night?â€

[Al-Qur’an 31:29]

 

Merging here means that the night slowly and gradually changes to day and vice versa. This phenomenon can only take place if the earth is spherical. If the earth was flat, there would have been a sudden change from night to day and from day to night.

 

The following verse also alludes to the spherical shape of the earth:

 

“He created the heavens and the earth in true (proportions):

He makes the Night overlap the Day, and the Day overlap the Night.â€

[Al-Qur’an 39:5]

 

The Arabic word used here is Kawwara meaning ‘to overlap’ or ‘to coil’– the way a turban is wound around the head. The overlapping or coiling of the day and night can only take place if the earth is spherical. The earth is not exactly round like a ball, but geo-spherical, i.e. it is flattened at the poles.

 

The following verse contains a description of the earth’s shape:

 

“And the earth, moreover, hath He made egg shaped.â€

[Al-Qur’an 79:30]

 

The Arabic word for egg here is dahaahaa (1) which means an ostrich-egg. The shape of an ostrich-egg resembles the geo-spherical shape of the earth. Thus the Qur’an correctly describes the shape of the earth, though the prevalent notion when the Qur’an was revealed was that the earth was flat.

 

----------------------------

1 The Arabic word dahaahaa has been translated by A. Yusuf Ali as “vast expanseâ€, which also is correct. This word also means an ostrich-egg.

Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullahee wa Barakatu

 

 

“Human beings are only called insaan because of his forgetfulness (nasiyaan), and it is only called the heart (al-qalb) because it changes so rapidly (yataqallib).”

 

In the past they said that the first one to forget (awwal naasin) was the first man (awwal al-naas), meaning Adam, peace be upon him. Forgetfulness is something that varies from person to person according to each individual’s nature; some may be more forgetful than others. Some of the things that may help to combat forgetfulness are the following:

 

Keeping away from sin, because the bad effects of sin result in a bad memory and the inability to retain knowledge. The darkness of sin cannot co-exist with the light of knowledge. The following words were attributed to al-Shaafa'i, may Allaah have mercy on him:

 

“I complained to [my shaykh] Wakee’ about my bad memory, and he taught me that I should keep away from sin.

 

He said that knowledge of Allaah is light, and the light of Allaah is not given to the sinner.”
