Remedy for Anger


Akhlaq & Spirituality, The way to a Happy Married Life, Women & Family

If you are a hot-tempered person, get taweez for yourself. Recite بسم ال الرحمن الرحيم seven times and blow onto the food so that when the other family members also eat this food, they too will remain safe from anger.

Recite the same and blow on the water used for cooking. Inshallah the whole household will have a merciful spirit. A person who has this realization that he needs a taweez for his anger is at least a human, because he realized it.

Layyâ, the aunt of Yûsuf ‘alayhis salâm


Bahishti Zewar, Fiqh, Part 7 - Lives of Pious Women and Characteristics of Women, Women & Family

It is mentioned in the Quran that when Yûsuf ‘alayhis salâm became the king of Egypt and there was a drought, all his brothers came to him asking for food. (At that time they did not know that he was in fact their brother whom they had thrown into the well). He then revealed his true identity to them and gave them his shirt asking them to pass it over their father’s, Ya‘qûb’s ‘alayhis salâm, eyes. He also told them to return with everyone. As a result of passing his shirt over his father’s eyes, his eyesight returned to him. They then left their country and went to Egypt to meet Yûsuf ‘alayhis salâm. When they came to him, Yûsuf ‘alayhis salâm seated his father and his aunt onto his royal throne. He did this out of respect for them. It was at that time that the two of them and all his brothers fell into prostration before Yûsuf ‘alayhis salâm. In those days, such a prostration in place of salâm was permissible. This is no longer permissible.

2. PRAYING


Akhlaq & Spirituality, Easy Good Deeds

Allah likes his bondsmen to pray to Him. If a man, however beneficent he may be, is again and again asked for anything, he sooner or later loses his patience and becomes angry. But Allah, on the contrary, is, pleased the more his bondsmen ask him.

Hadith tells as that Allah is displeased with one who does not ask him for anything in prayer.

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.

39) Breach of Faith


Beliefs & Practices, Major Sins

Allah Most High says,

{O ye that believe! Betray not the trust of Allah and the Messenger, nor misappropriate knowingly things entrusted to you.} (Al-anfal: 27)

Al-Wahidi (may Allah bestow mercy on him) said, “This verse is revealed concerning Abu Lubabah who was sent by the Prophet (pbuh) to the Jews of Banu Quraizah during the siege of Muslims to their land. The Jews said to Abu Lubabah, these families are living among the Jews, what do you say concerning the submission to the judgment of sai’d. Abu Lubabah then pointed at his throat meaning that Sa’d would sentence you to be slaughtered. Abu Lubabah said, “I have not moved from my place until I realized that I betrayed Allah and His Messenger.”

Stealing in His Deen


Akhlaq & Spirituality, Striding in Allah’s Shade - Enriching Lives

Now picture in your mind a setting where there is vast security. Will the criminals and thieves dare come near that place and carry out their tomfoolery. Instead, certainly they will stay away as the caretakers of law are watching over. But today the Muslims are stealing away in Allah’s Deen. How they are breaching all his laws, attempting to deceit Him. Have the Muslims forgotten the concept of there being a Caretaker and a Custodian for this eternal religion? He too is watching over. Today His realization and consciousness is way beyond our furthest intellects. And the result of all this is obvious: firstly, there are countless sins, and on the other hand even if there is some worship [ibadat], that too, is only mere pretentiousness, having no soul involved. If the worship were done in a manner that my Allah is watching me and I am in the exalted court of my Lord and my Creator, then its regard would be incredibly unusual altogether.

Verses of the Quran concerning Tabligh (Ayat 01)


Dawah & Tabligh, Virtues of Tabligh (Fazail e Aamaal)

“And whose words can be better than his, who calls (people) towards Allah, and performs good deeds, and says: ‘I am one of those who submit to Allah!'”

Certain commentators have written that whoever invites people to Allah through any means deserves the honour mentioned in the above verse. For instance, the prophets call people to Allah by means of miracles. and supernatural actions, the scholars invite them by preaching and arguments, the Muslim warriors (mujahids) call them by means of the sword: and the muazzins call them ‘by means of the azaan. In short, whoever invites people to good deeds deserves this reward, whether he calls them to the formal observances of Islam or to the internal improvements of the spirit, like the mystics who stress the purification of the heart and the realization of Allah’s attributes.
In the concluding verse quoted above some commentators say such a person should also be proud of the honour bestowed on him by Allah, of being categorised as a Muslim, and he should proclaim this honour in words.
Some other commentators interpret that he should not be proud of being a preacher, but should consider himself as an ordinary Muslim.
