POETRY: Why I Love The Prophet Muhammad (May Allah's Peace And Blessings Be Upon Him)

 

 

LOVE+THE+PROPHET+MUHAMMAD+%28SallAllahu+%27alaihi+wa+sallam%29.JPG

 

If you ask me, why do I love him, the

Prophet Muhammad (May Peace be upon him) -

I love him because he cared about us

Muslims, and loving him is a condition –

 

If you love Allah, then love the Prophet

Muhammad – Allah loved him very much.

He was Allah's Final Messenger, and

The hearts of many did his mercy touch.

 

His beautiful character makes me admire

Him – his trustworthiness and honesty –

Even before he became God's Prophet,

Disbelievers knew that he was trustworthy.

 

I love the Prophet Muhammad because

Of good manners he was the best example.

I love how he was patient throughout his life

And how his morals were never skeptical.

 

He cared about his nation too, thus he taught

Us what we should know about our religion.

When given the chance he'd always educate,

Blessing us with advice through his companions.

 

As a father and grandfather, the Prophet

Muhammad was kind and tender loving.

His mercy to the poor, widows and orphans –

His good treatment of them is too astounding.

 

His tolerance, even to non-Muslim

Neighbors, is also something to be admired.

His mercy too was further manifest

Through his kind treatment of the slaves he hired.

 

As a leader – he was charismatic,

As a warrior – marked with strength and bravery,

As a family man – full of mercy,

And a husband who treated his wives fairly –

 

As a friend – he was accommodating –

Full of cheer, he brought smiles to people's faces –

Respectful to the old, and kind towards the young –

Mercy was the Prophet Muhammad's basis.

 

I love how he was merciful – and because

Of his mercy, he always tried to guide.

I love how he struggled to obey Allah,

And how he remained patient all through his life.

 

I love how he was able to do so much –

So many good deeds, despite his simple life –

How he could survive on mere dates and water,

And yet stand for long hours when praying at night.

 

I love how he was so thankful to Allah –

How he was always ready to sacrifice.

I love how his character was dignified –

How he was strong and gentle at the same time.

 

I love the patience of Prophet Muhammad –

In worshipping Allah, in fasting, and praying –

His patience in helping Muslims, and in hard times,

And how he was merciful and forgiving.

 

Because of my love for Prophet Muhammad,

I try to follow him – and say "you should too" –

If you truly love Allah, then love Muhammad –

Let your following him make your love more true.

 

O' Allah, help us obey you, and help us

Follow Muhammad – in this world and to Heaven –

Grant us his companionship in Paradise,

And freedom to drink from his blessed fountain.

Ameen.

POETRY: Some Advice In This Sonnet

 

 

A few words of advice in this sonnet:

Don’t hurt, if you too don’t like to be hurt.

When bad deeds return, you might regret it.

So watch your deeds, and take care of your words.

 

Always know that from above you’re being watched.

On your right and left are angels writing –

Collect whatever good deeds you may lack,

To please God and meet Him while He’s smiling.

 

Avoid supplications prayed against you,

Especially those of righteous Muslims.

Beware of everything you see and do –

Know that on Judgment Day, you’ll be questioned.

 

Obey Allah’s Rules, and good you shall get.

If you displease Allah, yours is regret.

Masha-Allah, thank you for the wonderful comment brother/sister in Islam :)

 

I think it'd be nice if a Muslim started a website called creative-Muslims.com or talented-Muslims.com where its Muslim members can daily post their Islamic poetry, Islamic essays and articles, Islamic quotes and halaal images with Islamic advice all made by them. Allahu A'lam.

 

It would also be great if that website can have a forum section where its creative Muslim members can share with one another some advice or ideas and tips or whatever knowledge of Islam they have :)

 

otherwise maybe gawaher.com can start a section where its Muslim members can post and share their Islamic masterpieces :)

 

insha-Allah :)

 

Allah knows best.

      I am a devout Christian, I fear that the Christian God doesn't very clearly lay out the circumstances when God's power takes over  after man, after suffering and trying his best to pray for wisdom, even by his enemy-- trying to curb the urge to pray for and wish death upon the enemies who continue to persecute him day and night, despite having had no sin of instigation,  is failed by his body, his judgment, and his love for himself.  That that man sacrifices with tears enough to wash the feet of his own mother, that that man has been driven insane by pain, that that man has been chased to the ends of his life's blessings and opportunities, because of pure malice by the enemy....
      When is God's power invoked according to the Q'uran? 
       
      I am a torture victim for 9 years now, but my entire life has been one of slavery by the u.s. enslaved by psychotronics,  made to brak the teachings of my mother despite my will to be good because of the licentious permissiveness that was ingrained by the jealousy of my American peers to destroy me in the end. My heart cries for healing from my many wouds and my soul cries to be released do death plenty of times, and indeed plenty of times I have faced many deaths, by drowning in the ocean, by overdose, by satellite attacks, by insanity due to incarceration of many months... but the Lord, Allah you may call him, does not see it fit to release me from my earthly bonds. 
      INSTEAD, GOD, as a joke to end all jokes, has cursed me with the power to control the very air  , the sun, the gravitational forces, the mind of animals... as a top secret U.S. project. a tortured experiment... because I have been cursed with extreme sixth sense and  abilities not natural to MAN in general.
      And  as if to suffer alone were not bac enough, The U.S. and my home country the Philippines have enjoined countless torturers and scientists around the world to experiment cruelly on my family in their sad hopes of trying to duplicate me for their own misbegotten sciences.
       
      To the non believer, I give you to comfort of thinking I am speaking in parables, but to those who know of me and those who believe that some are chosen and singled out by the CREATOR to carry immense burdens of power and liability,
       
      MAy I introduce myself -- the Man with no sin, the MAn with the power of an angels, the man so deeply hidden in the PENTAGON and CIA's archives , a man from a wealthy family once blessed until the Philippines as a country colluded to murder my father and destroy our billion-dollar fortune in 1983....
       
      My name is Antonio Tan Llenado. my grandfather was a Chinese-Japanese TAN family member.  My other Grandfather is from a family of Governors who once ruled the northern half of the Philippines.  our names all but erased by the corruption of the country a was born into and the country that I was forced into.
      IF Q'uran can tell me why I was born so, with the power of an angel and the shackles worthy of a godling-- so strong that only a god could destroy these sufferings, then I will consecrate myself to Q'uran.
       
      Tell me, At what point does God take over after man has battled with his own suffering to no avail? When will GOD raise his power to avenge the wrongs against a man with no sin.

      From the very beginning, historians and writers of Seerah have differed on the date of birth of Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم. There are disagreements even for the ‘year’ of birth of Prophet Muhammadصلى الله عليه وسلم so, naturally we have different views regarding his ‘month’ of birth and ‘date’ of birth. Considering the fact that a wide majority of the historians have mentioned the ‘month’ to be Rabi ul awwal, one can safely assume that the month was Rabi ul awwal. Furthermore, it is proven from Authentic Narrations that his ‘day’ of birth was ‘Monday’.
      Abu Qatada Ansari رضى الله عنه reported that Allah's Messenger صلى االه عليه وسلمwas asked about fasting on Monday, whereupon he said: It is (the day) when I was born and revelation was sent down to me.
      (Sahih Al Bukhari – Kitab As Sawm)
      The different views regarding the date of birth are:
      2nd Rabi ul Awwal: Ibn Abd al-Barr
      5th Rabi ul Awwal: Ameer ud din 
      8th Rabi ul Awwal: Ibn al Qayyim, ibn e Hazm, Az Zuhri , Ibn e Dihya
      9th Rabi ul Awwal : Muhammad Suleman Mansurpuri, Mubarakpuri , Shibli Nomani, Mahmud Pasha Falaki, Akbar Shah Najeeb Abadi, Moeen ud din Ahmed Nadvi, Abul Kalam Azad
      12th Rabi ul Awwal: Tabari, ibn e Khuldoon , Dr hameedullah , ibn e hisham, ‘Allama Abu’l-Hasan ‘Ali ibn Muhammad al- Mawardi, ibn e ishaaq 
      10th Rabi ul Awwal: Abul Fida, Abu Jaafar al Baaqir, Al Waqadi , Al Sha’bi– 10
      17th Rabi ul Awwal: Shia view; and they also believe that it was Friday 
      22nd Rabi ul Awwal: Also attributed to ibn e Hazm
      10th Muharram: Abdul Qadir Jilani
      Now, how can one find the true date out of the numerous opinions? The only sure-shot information that we have is that it was the Monday and the month Rabi ul Awwal. Few biographers of the Seerah have mentioned that a person named Mahmud Pasha Falki proved through astronomical calculations that the Monday falls on 9th Rabi ul Awwal in the year when Rasulullah was born. People who have written biographies in the past century have accepted his research and they normally quote the date of birth to be 9th Rabi ul Awwal. Furthermore, Allama Qastalani writes that the people of Zaych are in agreement that the eighth of Rabi ul Awwal was the Monday. 
      The presence of such disagreements on the exact day of his birth proves that birthdays were not important to the Arabs. Arabs were very well known for their great memorization skills. They used know the lineage of their families and other Arabs by heart; they used to know hundreds of verses of poetry by heart, a great feat of memorization. Documentation wasn’t very common. Hence, it is very difficult to conclude when exactly Rasulullah was born. 
       
      Why we cannot find the Exact Date Even from Astronomical Calculations
      The pagan Arabs would play with the calendar and amend it according to their wishes; which is referred to as Nasi. The pagan Arabs practiced Nasi in two ways. 
      1- Whenever it suited them, they would declare a prohibited month to be an ordinary month in which fighting, robbery and murder in retaliation were lawful for them. Then they would declare an ordinary month to be a prohibited month instead of this month in order to make up for the deficiency caused in the number of the prohibited months. Earlier writers of Seerah like Ibn e Hisham and commentators like Mujahid quoted that one year the Arab made Muharram as Halal, and they would consider Safar to be sacred (Haram), and the next year they’ll take Muharram to be sacred. They did so because three sacred months Dhul-Hijj, Dhul-Q’ada and Muharram were consecutive. `Abd al-Raĥmān ibn Zayd ibn Aslam, another leading commentator says that they would make two Safar one year and two Muharram next year. 
      2- The other way of Nasi was the addition of a month in order to harmonize the lunar year to the solar year so that the Hajj of Prophet Muhammad should always fall in the same season and they should be saved from the botheration and inconveniences that are experienced by its observance according to the lunar year. Due to the lunar calendar, the months shifted 11 days earlier each successive year, thus the people wished to perform the hajj (pilgrimage) ceremony - which coincided with different seasons - not on certain days of Dhu al-Hijjah, but on other days and months when the weather was mild and trade environment was suitable.  In order to ensure this, they used the nasi (adjustment) method. So, the way out was to add a month after every three years. In this way Haj was observed for 36 years on dates other than the actual dates. Then in the thirty seventh year it was again observed on the 9th and 10th of Zil-Hajjah, as they should have actually fallen according to the lunar calendar. It so happened that on the occasion when the Holy Prophet performed Hujjatul-Wida' (Farewell Haj). These dates by rotation coincided with the actual dates of Haj according to the lunar calendar
      Abu Bakra reported that (in the Farewell Address) Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) said: Time has completed a cycle and come to the state of the day when Allah created the heavens and the earth. The year is constituted of twelve months, of which four are sacred; three of them consecutive, viz. Dhu'l-Qa'da, Dhu'l- Hijja and Muharram, and also Rajab the month of Mudar which comes between Jumada and Sha'ban.
      (Sahih Muslim - Al-Kitab Al-Qasama wa'l-Muharaba wa'l-Qisas wa'l-Diyat)
      Qur’an also mentions this act of delaying months in Surah At Tawbah. 
      Nasi (Postponing of the sacred month) is only an addition in unbelief, wherewith those who disbelieve are led astray, violating it one year and keeping it sacred another, that they may agree in the number (of months) that Allah has made sacred, and thus violate what Allah has made sacred; the evil of their doings is made fair-seeming to them; and Allah does not guide the unbelieving people.
      (Surah At Tawbah 9:37)
      Moreover, before the annunciation of prophet-hood, there was not any official calendar in force in the Arab land. The Arabs were accustomed to changing and altering the months as they pleased, and hence, sometimes they would make thirteen and fourteen months in one year. It is mentioned in Diya’ al-Qur’an that in a lunar year one extra intercalary month would be added to the existing twelve months. It is quite clear that before the annunciation of prophethood, such additions were made, however, we can never know in which specific year or years additions were made. (Diya’ al-Ummat, Justice Shaykh Muhammad Karam Shah al- Azhari (ra), Diya’ al-Qur’an, volume 1, page 202, note 60.)
       
      Conclusion
      Considering the above mentioned facts, we can never be sure about the date of birth of Prophet Muhammad. The exact birthdate of the Prophet Muhammad has always been the subject of dispute amongst classical scholars. Nothing authentic has been reported in the standard source books of tradition, and this fact in itself shows that it was not held in the significance that later authorities did. The astronomical researches are invalid considering the practice of Nasi. The only way we could have been absolutely sure about it was if Prophet Muhammad would have told us that himself, which he actually didn’t. If we consider this fact we would be forced to leave all bid’aat (innovations) attached with 12th of Rabi ul Awwal. 
       
      Why 12th Rabiulawwal is famous?
      1- The two famous books authors of Seerah Ibn e Hisham and Ibn e Ishaaq both have mentioned it to be 12thRabi ul Awwal. 
      2- Perhaps those who decided to start milad took this day:  This also explains why Ibn ʿAbd al-Barr, writing before the conception of the mawlid in the fifth century of the hijrah, stated that the most common opinion amongst historians was in fact the 8th of Rabīʿ al-Awwal, and yet Ibn Kathīr, writing three centuries later, after the mawlid had been introduced as a public festival, stated that the 12th of Rabīʿ al-Awwal was the most common opinion. Earlier historians like Ibn e S’ad didn’t even put 12 Rabi ul Awwal in the list of candidates for Birthday of Prophet Muhammad. In the earlier days 8th Rabi ul Awwal used to be accepted as the date of Birth. 
       
      Date of Death
      What we know for sure is that day of his death was ‘Monday’, as for the date we have different narrations. The famous one is 12th rabiulawwal. 
      Narrated Hisham's father: Aisha said, "I went to Abu Bakr (during his fatal illness) and he asked me, 'In how many garments was the Prophet shrouded?' She replied, 'In three Sahuliya pieces of white cloth of cotton, and there was neither a shirt nor a turban among them.' Abu Bakr further asked her, 'On which day did the Prophet die?' She replied, 'He died on Monday.' He asked, 'What is today?' She replied, 'Today is Monday.' He added, 'I hope I shall die sometime between this morning and tonight.' Then he looked at a garment that he was wearing during his illness and it had some stains of saffron. Then he said, 'Wash this garment of mine and add two more garments and shroud me in them.' I said, 'This is worn out.' He said, 'A living person has more right to wear new clothes than a dead one; the shroud is only for the body's pus.' He did not die till it was the night of Tuesday and was buried before the morning." 
      (Bukhari – Kitab al Janaiz)
      13th Rabi ul Awwal: Muhammad Suleman Mansurpure 
      12th Rabi ul Awwal: Mubarakpuri 
      2nd Rabi ul Awwal: Ibn e Hajr
      1st Rabi ul Awwal: Ibn e Jareer
      28th Safar: Sh’ia Historians (They also mention the day to be Monday)
      From the books of Hadith we can be sure that the year Prophet Muhammad died: 
      9th Dhil Hijjah was Friday (Bukhari – Prophetic Commentary on the Qur’an) 
      “….It was Friday and the Prophet was standing at 'Arafat (i.e. the Day of Hajj)" 
      (Narrated by Umar bin Al-Khattab)
      We have four possibilities: 
      1- If Dhil Hijjah, Muharram and Safar all were of 30 days, Rabi ul Awwal starts on Wednesday and Mondays fall on 6th, 13th and so on. 
      2- If Dhil Hijjah, Muharram and Safar all were of 29 days, Rabi ul Awwal starts on Sunday and Mondays fall on 2nd, 9th, 16th and so on. 
      3- If any two months were of 29 days and one of 30 days, Rabi ul Awwal starts on Monday and Mondays fall on 1st, 8th, 15th and so on. 
      4- If any two months were of 30 days and one of 29 days, Rabi ul Awwal starts on Monday and Mondays fall on 7th, 14th and so on. 
      As for 28th Safar:
      1- If Dhil Hijjah and Muharram are 30 days it is Sunday.
      2- If Dhil HIjjah and Muharram are 29 days it is Friday
      3- If one is 29 and the other is 30 it is Saturday.

      Song name : Qasida Burda Sharif (Maulla Ya Salli Wasallim ) Love from india
      Album : Rise up 
      Label : QB Productions 
      Singer : Mazhar Khan 
       
      Qasida Burda Shareef also famous as Maullaya Salli Wasallim is one of the best and much sung Qasida in the honour of our Prophet (PBUH) around the world. Many versions have been made and much appreciated by the people. Here we are with the Maullaya Salli Wasallim Love from India from our album Rise Up. Singer Mazhar Khan has been singing this when he was 5 and always thought of making it once on the platform where it can be heard by others.
       
      We picked up a theme with concept in this video that everyone comes across the needy in their day to day life but mostly we choose to deny from helping them because of our busy schedule and other commitments, mostly because of our own greed. Our Prophet always taught us that one should always help the needy and the almighty will give you the return with much much great bounties. 
      Lets hear it and see how you can also find people to help and give some of your time to make this world a beautiful place to live. In Sha Allah. 
      Thanks to our team

      "None of you will have faith till he loves for his brother, what he loves for himself" - Bukhari Book 2, Hadith 12
       
      Many Scholars (including An-Nawawi) interpret the word "Brother" here as brother in humanity
       
      Therefore I always treat my fellow human being with respect, whether he's muslim or not because that is how I would want people to
      treat me. I know that the Prophet peace be upon Him used to treat non muslims with utmost respect. Even when they disrespected Him,
      He would return their rudeness with kindness.
       
      So please don't look at you brother in humanity with animosity. But look at them with compassion and mercy like our Beloved Prophet did,
      sallallahu wa aleyhi wa sallam
