ISAAL-E-THAWAAB


DIFFERENCES IN THE UMMAT AND SIRAAT-E- MUSTAQEEM, Fiqh

(1). The reality of Isaal-e-Thawaab is that whatever good deed you do, and it is accepted by Allaah Ta`ala, then you make an intention or a dua that Allaah Ta`ala bestow the reward thereof to some living or dead person. After understanding this definition of Isaal-e-Thawaab, you should know the following three Mas`alahs:

1. The deed which you carry out must be such that you have hope that it can earn you reward. Otherwise, if you cannot get any reward for it then how can you convey the reward to another person? Hence, that action which is contrary to the Shariah or Sunnah, will be deprived of any reward. To expect to convey reward with such an action is having high hopes.

MOULANA MAUDUDI Part 2


DIFFERENCES IN THE UMMAT AND SIRAAT-E- MUSTAQEEM, Fiqh

After the Ambiyaa (alaihimus salaam), the most sacred group is that of the Sahaabah (radhiAllaahu anhum),especially the four rightly guided caliphs. They form the medium between the Ambiyaa and the Ummat like that of Barzakh. Whatever has emanated from Maududi‟s pen in his books “Tajdeed Wa Ahyaa-e-Deen”, “Khilaafat Wa Mulukiyat”, “Tafheemul Qur`aan” etc. regarding Sayyidina Uthmaan, Ali, Talha, Zubair, Aishah, Muawiyah, Abu Moosa Ash`ari, Amr bil Aas, Uqbah and other Sahaabah, I regard as pure Shiasm. After studying Moulana‟s writings I have come to the conclusion that just as he is unaware of the reverence of prophethood, similarly is he unaware of the ranks of the Sahaabah. I wish he could have at least remembered one statement of Mujaddid Alfe Thaani:

TAWASSUL AND DUA


DIFFERENCES IN THE UMMAT AND SIRAAT-E- MUSTAQEEM, Fiqh

A delicate point and issue arises as to the validity of making tawassul (means of mediation) by using the names Nabi (sallAllaahu alaihi wasallam) and or pious predecessors. My opinion on this matter is that it is permissible to use Nabi (sallAllaahu alaihi wasallam), Ambiyaa (alaihimus salaam), the Sahaabah-e-Kiraam (radhiAllaahu anhum) or any other pious predecessor as a means of mediation in dua. The manner of doing this will be to say: O Allaah! Through the mediation of so and so pious accepted servant of yours, accept my dua, or fulfil my certain need.

BUGHD LILLAAH (HATRED FOR ALLAH’S SAKE)


Hazrat Musa (A.S), History & Biography

Once Allah Ta’ala asked Nabi Musaa (alayhis salaam): “O Musaa! Did you ever do a good deed solely for My Sake?”  When Nabi Musaa (alayhis salaam) said: ‘Salaat.” Allah Ta’ala responded: “You perform Salaat for your own benefit.” Then Nabi Musa said: “Saum”. Allah Ta’ala said: “Saum too is for your benefit.”

Nabi Musaa (alayhis salaam) then mentioned Zakaat and some other deeds. For each one Allah Ta’ala replied in the same way.  Nabi Musaa (alayhis salaam) then professed his unawareness. Allah Ta’ala said: “Did you ever display Bughd (hatred) only for My Sake?”  Nabi Musaa (alayhis salaam) then realized the value of Bughd lillaah, and what a great ibaadat it is.

Hadith Number Six


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.

Hadith Number One


Chapter 03 - Enduring the inconveniences of the Hajj journey, Dawah & Tabligh, Virtues of Hajj (Fazail e Hajj)

Hazrat Ibn Abbas R.A reports from Rasulullah Sal’am who said: “Whoever goes for Hajj to Mecca on foot, and return; for him is written the reward of seven hundred good deeds performed in the Holy Haram for every stride taken.” The companions asked: “And what is the meaning of good deeds of the Haram?”

Hadith Number Six


Chapter 01 - Encouragement towards performing Hajj, Dawah & Tabligh, Virtues of Hajj (Fazail e Hajj)

Hazrat Sahl bins Sa’ad R.A. reports that Rasulullah (Salallaho Alaihi Wassallam) said:
“when a Muslim shouts Labbaik, then verily every stone, tree and all the ground to his right and to his left recites the same, and this continues till that cry reaches the end of the earth”.

The recitation of the cry ‘Labbaik’ is the symbol and emblem of the Hajj. This is borne out by many Ahaadith. In Knaz we find a report that when Moosa A.S used to recite Labbaik, Allah used to reply: “Labbaik O Moosa: (Kanz). It is Allah’s mercy that not only the Hajji’s Labbaik, but his every action earns for him great reward.

Beliefs & Practices, Major Sins

Allah Most High says,

{And never give up hope of Allah’s soothing mercy: truly no one despairs of Allah’s soothing mercy, except those who have no faith. } (Yusuf: 87)

{He is the one that sends down rain (even) after (men) have given up all hope.} (Ash-Shura: 28)

{Say, ‘O my servants who have transgressed against their souls! Despair not of the mercy of Allah).} (AzZummar: 53)

The Prophet (pbuh) said,

“Let none of you die except thinking the best of Allah the Almighty.”( Muslim)

1. GOOD INTENTION


Akhlaq & Spirituality, Easy Good Deeds

Intention is an alchemic prescription that can turn base dirt into noble gold. The hadith says “All actions depends upon intentions.” It is sometimes interpreted to mean that good intentions justify bad deeds too and turn sins meritorious. This is entirely wrong. Sin is always a sin no matter how noble the intention may be. For instance if someone breaks into a house to steal with the intention of giving away as alms whatever he would steal would be a thief deserving the prescribed punishment. His good intentions would not earn him any merit nor would his sin be pardoned.
