The Story Of Ibraheem (Peace Be Upon Him) With His Father

Recommended Posts


He used to preach to his father much and forbid him from
practicing polytheism, using soft, kind and logical speech: {42. When he said
to his father: “O my father! Why do you worship that which hears not, sees not
and cannot avail you in anything?”43. “O my father! Verily! There has come to
me of knowledge that which came not unto you. So follow me. I will guide you to
a Straight Path.”44. “O my father! Worship not Shaitân (Satan). Verily! Shaitân
(Satan) has been a rebel against the Most Beneficent (Allâh).”45. “O my father!
Verily! I fear lest a torment from the Most Beneficent (Allâh) overtake
you.”}[Tafsir Al-Qurtubî] (Maryam:42-45)

Unfortunately, his father’s response was harsh: {He (the father) said: “Do you
reject my gods, O Ibrâhim (Abraham)? If you stop not (this), I will indeed
stone you. So get away from me safely before I punish you.”{ (Maryam:46)

Abraham’s reply was very polite, compassionate and kind: {47. Ibrâhim (Abraham)
said: “Peace be on you! I will ask Forgiveness of my Lord for you. Verily! He
is unto me, Ever Most Gracious.” 48. “And I shall turn away from you and from
those whom you invoke besides Allâh. And I shall call on my Lord; and I hope that I
shall not be unblest in my invocation to my Lord.”}(Maryam:47-48)

Prophet Abraham (pbuh) continued to call his father and his people to Allah and
monotheism, and to reject polytheism. His people, however, did not respond to
Abraham and his call, and insisted on polytheism. {80. His people disputed with
him. He said: “Do you dispute with me concerning Allâh while He has guided me,
and I fear not those whom you associate with Allâh in worship. (Nothing can
happen to me) except when my Lord (Allâh) wills something. My Lord comprehends
in His Knowledge all things. Will you not then remember? 81. And how should I
fear those whom you associate in worship with Allâh (though they can neither
benefit nor harm)”}(Al-An’âm:80-81)

Again he said to them: {When he said to his father and his people: “What do you

They replied: {71. They said: “We worship idols, and to them we are ever

. He said: {“Do they hear you, when you call (on them)?” 73. “Or do they
benefit you or do they harm (you)?”}(Ash-Shu’arâ’:72-73)

The response was a stupid one which was not based on any reason or logic, just
on pure tradition. They said: {“Nay, but we found our fathers doing

He answered them with pure monotheism. using convincing arguments, reason and
insight: {75. He said: “Do you observe that which you have been worshipping,76.
You and your ancient fathers?77. Verily! They are enemies to me, save the Lord
of the ‘Alamîn (mankind, jinns and all that exists);78. Who has created me, and
it is He Who guides me;79. And it is He Who feeds me and gives me to drink.80.
And when I am ill, it is He who cures me; 81. And Who will cause me to die, and
then will bring me to life (again); 82. And Who, I hope will forgive me my
faults on the Day of Recompense, (the Day of Resurrection),” 83. “My Lord!
Bestow Hukman (religious knowledge, right judgement of the affairs and
Prophethood) on me, and join me with the righteous; 84. And grant me an
honourable mention in later generations; 85. And make me one of the inheritors
of the Paradise of Delight; 86. And forgive my father, verily he is of the

      Putting a Sutrah (barrier placed in front of a person praying) is a necessity for both men and women. It is impermissible for anyone to pass in front of a person offering Salah, or between them and their Sutrah, whether the person praying is a man or a woman, and whether the passing person is a man or woman. But, if the passing person is a woman, her passage would interrupt the Salah of the person she passes in front of, or between them and their Sutrah, except in Al-Masjid Al-Haram (the Sacred Mosque in Makkah) where she would be excused for the difficulty of preventing that from taking place. Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He) says: So keep your duty to Allâh and fear Him as much as you can and ...and He has not laid upon you in religion any hardship May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions. source: https://www.al-feqh.com/en

      1- If a womans hair is braided, she’s not obliged to undo her braids to perform a ghusl. This applies to purification from a menstrual cycle or janabah.
      2- It is recommended for the woman to take a piece of cotton/tissue, put musk on it and wipe the path the blood used to take after she has bathed due to her menstrual cycle stopping.
      3- If a muslim makes a ghusl to purify himself from major hadath and prays, his prayer is valid, whether he intended wudu’ with it or not.

      1- Washing of the hands three times before al-wudu’.
      2- Using As-Siwak.
      3- Washing the limbs three times, except the head and ears, which are to be wiped once
      4- Starting from the right.
      5- Lengthening the ‘place of light’, meaning that one should wash above the elbow and the ankles when permforming wudu’.
      6- Parting the beard with the fingers so that water can reach the skin of the face beneath it.
      7- Rubbing water in between the fingers and toes.
      8- Rubbing water evenly and thoroughly over the body parts to be washed and not just pouring water over them.
      9- Being conservative with the use of water. The Prophet ﷺ said: “Verily there will be from my nation those (followers) who exceed the bounds in wudu’,” [ narrated by Abu Dawud] - i.e. they will waste water when making wudu’.
      10- Supplicating after wudu’. The Prophet ﷺ said, “There is not one of you who completes al-wudu then says ‘Ash hadu a la ilah illallah wahdahu la shareeka lahu wa ash hadu anna Mudammadan abduhu wa rasulahu, Alluhamma ij-alnee min at-tawwabeen wa ij-alnee min al-mutatahireen’ except that the eight doors of paradise are opened for him, and he can enter from any door he chooses (on the day of judgment).”[ narrated by At-Tirmidhi.]
      11- Praying two raka’a after making wudu’. The Prophet ﷺ said, “Whoever makes wudu’ like I make wudu then stands and prays two raka’as of prayer without letting his thoughts wander, his past sins will be forgiven.” [ agreed upon.]

      Non-obligatory Voluntary Fasting
      These include all forms of optional fasts that are performed in order to be closer to Allah, the Exalted.
      Supererogatory fasts comprise great virtues and magnificent rewards. In a Qudsi hadeeth reported by Abu Hurayrah, the Prophet ﷺ said: “Indeed every righteous deed by the son of Adam is rewarded from ten to seven hundred times, but Allah Almighty says: ‘Fasting is an exception. This is because it is for Me and I shall reward (the one who fasts) accordingly.’” [ Agreed upon.]
      Days on which Voluntary Fasting is Recommended
      The bright days in every month
      The bright days These are the 13th, 14th and 15th days of every Islamic month. They are referred to as bright days because their nights are brightened by the light of the moon.
      It is authenticated that Abd al-Malik ibn al-Minhal conveyed from his father that the Prophet ﷺ ordered them to fast the three “bright” days. He said, “It is [equivalent] to fasting the entire month.” [ Source: Ibn Habban.]
      - Fasting on Monday and Thursday of every week
      Abu Hurayrah reported that the Prophet ﷺ said: “Deeds are reported to Allah Almighty on every Monday and Thursday; and I like that my deeds are reported while I am fasting.” [ Source: Tirmidhi.]
      - Fasting on alternative days
      The best form of supererogatory fast is the fast of Prophet Dawud (peace be upon him). He used to fast a day and take a break the next day. Abdullah ibn ‘Amr reported the Prophet ﷺ to have said: “The best form of fasting is the fasting of Dawud (peace be upon him); he used to fast a day and take a break on the next (day).” [ Source: An-Nasaii.]

      1-  Conditions of zakat : The Nisab is required to be more than what is necessary for the basic needs of man e.g. feeding, clothing, shelter etc. This is because Zakat has been ordained as a support for the poor. It is therefore important that the payer of Zakat is not in need himself.
      2- The Nisab must completely belong to a particular individual. Zakah is not paid from money or property that does not belong to a specific person. For example, money that was contributed towards building a mosque, an endowment set aside for the well-being of a community, or properties in the treasuries of welfare or philantropic organizations.
