Importance Of Iman

Recommended Posts


 

The best and most pure of all deeds in the sight of Allah is
Iman. Abu Tharr (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated
that he asked the Prophet (peace be upon him): &"O Messenger
of Allah, which deed is the best?&" He replied, &"Having Iman
in Allah and fighting in His cause (Jihad)&"
(Narrated by Muslim).

Iman is the path that leads to guidance and happiness in this world and the
Hereafter. Allah Almighty says: &"So whoever Allah wants to guide -
He expands his breast to [contain] Islam&"
(Al-An&"âm:
125).

Iman leads the Mu&"min (believer) away from sinning. Allah Almighty
says: &"Indeed, those who fear Allah - when an impulse touches them
from Satan, they remember [Him] and at once they have insight&"
(Al-A&"râf:
201).

Iman is a condition for any deed to be accepted by Allah. Allah says: &"And
it was already revealed to you and to those before you that if you should
associate [anything] with Allah, your work would surely become worthless and
you would surely be among the losers&"
(Az-Zumar: 65).

Sincere Iman makes the deed blessed and makes Du&"aa (supplications)
be accepted by Allah.

I see it says 'whom Allah wants to guide' so what makes All WANT to guide - is it just a matter of chance or whim or what?

      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.
