The pursuit of halâl wealth Part 2

Bahishti Zewar, Fiqh, Part 5-Principles of Business

Hadith Eleven: It is mentioned in a Hadîth that a person who purchases a garment for 10 dirhams and one dirham from it was harâm, Allah will not accept his salât as long as he is wearing that garment.

Although the person will absolve himself of this duty, he will not receive the full reward for his salât. Other acts could also be based on this. We should fear Allah in this regard. First of all, our acts of ‘ibâdah are not offered in the proper manner. And those that are offered go to waste in this way (by harâm wealth). What answer will we give to Allah on the day of judgement and how will we bear the severe punishment?

Mahr – Dowry Part 1

Beliefs & Practices, Part 4-Nikah (Marriage) in Islam

1. Once a  nikâh  is performed, it will be valid irrespective of whether mention of any mahr  was made or not. Despite it being valid, one will have to give the      mahr . In fact, if a person makes the condition that he will not give any       mahr  and that he is marrying the woman without any  mahr , he will still have to give the  mahr .

Hadith Number Four

Chapter 07 - Concerning the Umrah, Dawah & Tabligh, Virtues of Hajj (Fazail e Hajj)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah R.A. reports that Rasulullah Sal’am said; ‘The Hajis and those who perform umrah are Allah’s deputation. When they pray to Him, He answers them, and when they seek His forgiveness, He forgives them.’

The Hajis and those enroute to perform umrah are a deputation with special duties towards Allah. In the same manner that we have deputation and delegations going to the courts of great men and rulers, these people go to present themselves at Allah’s house. And in the same manner that a delegation desires to be honored, these people are honored in Allah’s presence. According to one Hadith: ‘The delegation of Allah are of three kinds: ‘the fighters in His way, those who perform Haj and those who perform umrah.’ (Mishkaat)

Chapter 06 - The virtue of Makkah And The Holy Kaabah, Dawah & Tabligh, Virtues of Hajj (Fazail e Hajj)

Hazrat Anas bin Maalik R.A. reports that Rasulullah Sal’am said: ‘The salaat which a person performs in his house is one salaat; and his salaat in the local masjid is equal to 25 salaats: and his salaat in the Jaame Masjid where the people gather is rewarded to the extent of five hundred salaats; and his salaat in the mosque of Jerusalem, Masjidul Aqsaa is rewarded to the extent of fifty thousand salaats: and his salaat in my mosque-Masjidul Nabawi in the Holy Mosque of Makkah is rewarded to the extent of one hundred thousand salaats’
The fact that salaat in the Holy Mosque of Makkah is rewarded up to one hundred thousand times be borne out by many ahaadith.

Beliefs & Practices, Major Sins

Allah, the Most High, says,

Pilgrimage thereto is a duty, men owe to Allah those who can afford the journey; but if any deny faith, Allah stands not in need of any of his creatures.” (Al-Imran: 97)

The Prophet (pbuh) said,

“Whoever can afford this journey to the sacred House, by provision and transportation and he does not make the pilgrimage, there is no blame if he dies as a Jew or a Christian. This is because Allah says, “Pilgrimage thereto is a duty men owe to Allah -those who can afford the journey.” (Tirmidhi)
