Abu Malik al-Ash’ari (Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) said: “Soon there will be people from my Ummah who will consume alcohol, they will change its name (by regarding it permissible. m), on there heads will be instruments of music and singing.” (Sahih Ibn Hibban & Sunan Ibn Majah, with a sound chain of narration).

The blessed Companion of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), Abdullah ibn Salam narrates that when Allah willed to guide Zaid ibn Su`nah (the great Jewish scholar of Madinah), Zaid ibn Su`nah said:

“I recognized all of the signs of prophethood upon seeing the face of Muhammad save two signs that were not immediately evident:

That his forbearance would precede his rashness, and that his forbearance would increase upon encountering excessive rashness.”

Islam is not something left to the intellect and opinions of men

islam-religion

By: John Fontain

May Allaah have mercy upon you. Know that the Religion is what came from Allaah, the Blessed and Most High. It is not something left to the intellect and opinions of men. Knowledge it is what comes from Allaah and His Messenger, so do not follow anything based upon your desires and so deviate away from the Religion and leave Islaam. There will be no excuse for you since Allaah’s Messenger explained the Sunnah to his Ummah and made it clear to his Companions and they are the Jamaa’ah, and they are the Main Body (as-Sawaad ul-A’dham), and the Main Body is the truth and its followers.

So he who contradicts the Companions of Allaah’s Messenger sallallahu alaihiwasallam in any of the affairs of the Religion, then he has fallen into disbelief.

Hadeeth means the words, actions, approval or attributes that have been narrated from the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). A hadeeth may either confirm things that are mentioned in the Qur’aan, such as prayer, zakaah, etc., or it may give details of things that are mentioned in the Qur’aan in general terms, such as the numbers of rak’ahs in each prayer, the thresholds for paying zakaah, the details of Hajj, etc. It may also explain rulings which are not mentioned in the Qur’aan, such as the prohibition on being married to a woman and her (paternal or maternal) aunt at the same time.

Glory is to Allah the Lord of the Great Throne, and all praises be to Allah the Lord of the Worlds.)”

The Possible Effects of Overeating

et

Science prohibits overeating today, Islam prohibited more than 1400 years ago.

People living in today’s world have put their reliance in the doctors, scientists and researchers to a great extent. They have become health conscious because the doctors have prohibited overeating and they believe that doctors are concerned about people and their guidance benefits mankind. Overeating has been prohibited by Allah more than 1400 years ago. The irony is that people are now following it upon the advice of doctors whereas they ignore the guidance of Allah.

The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said:

ما ملأ بن آدم وعاءً شراً من بطنه ، بحسب ابن آدم لقيمات يقمن بها صلبه ، فإن كان ولا بد فثلث لطعامه ، وثلث لشرابه ، وثلث لنفسه

Ibn Masaweh, a Muslim physician in Iraq, mentioned after reading this hadith: If the people only used these words, they would avoid all diseases and maladies and the clinics and pharmacies would be idle.

“The Son of Adam will not fill a pot worse for himself than his stomach. It is enough for the Son of Adam to eat a few bites that strengthens his spine. If he likes to have more, then let him fill a third with food, a third with drink and leave a third for his breathing” (Tirmidhi)

According to the doctors, dietitians, researchers, andNational Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) USA, Eating disorders are serious, potentially life-threatening conditions that affect a person’s emotional and physical health. An overeater is most likely to suffer from:

•High blood pressure.

•High cholesterol levels.

•Heart disease as a result of elevated triglyceride levels.

•Type II diabetes mellitus.

•Gallbladder disease.

The doctors suggest consumption of small meals multiple times a day so that people stay fit, energetic and healthy. SubhanAllah, we are blessed to be Muslims. Allah is more concerned about everything related to us than anyone else in this world. He has prohibited only what is bad for us and permitted what is good. There is no personal gain or ego behind these prohibitions. May Allah forbid us.

Allah says in the Quran:

يَأْمُرُهُم بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَيَنْهَاهُمْ عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ وَيُحِلُّ لَهُمُ الطَّيِّبَاتِ وَيُحَرِّمُ عَلَيْهِمُ الْخَبَائِثَ

“Who enjoins upon them what is right and forbids them what is wrong and makes lawful for them the good things and prohibits for them the evil” (7:157)

So we should put our trust in Allah, and follow his commands to succeed in the world and hereafter. Allah says in the Quran:

وَمَن يَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى اللَّـهِ فَهُوَ حَسْبُهُ 

And whoever relies upon Allah – then He is sufficient for him (65:3)

Knowledge of the unseen: a priviledge from Allah, Most High

the-Unseen

By: Sh. G. F. Haddad

Sourcehttp://www.livingislam.org/

Qadi Yusuf al-Nabahani said in his “HUJJATULLAH `ALA AL-`ALAMIN FI MU`JIZAT SAYYID AL-MURSALIN”:

First of all, you should know that knowledge of the unseen is the privilege from Allah Most High, and that its appearance on the tongue of the Messenger of Allah and others comes from Allah (swt) either through revelation or through inspiration. The Prophet said in the hadith: “I swear it by Allah! Truly I know nothing except what my Lord taught me.”1[] So everything that came to us from him consisting in news of the unseen is nothing other than the Divine disclosure to him as a proof for the actuality of his Prophethood and its truth.

In other words, as expounded at length by Shaykh Ahmad Rida Khan, the Prophet’s `ilm al-ghayb is partial (juz’i), non-exhaustive (ghayr ihati), bestowed (`ata’i) and not independent (ghayr istiqlali) as established once and for all by the Qur’anic verse {the knower of the Unseen, and He reveals unto none His secret save unto every messenger whom He has chosen} (72:26-27).

Al-Nabahani said: The listing of the miracles in this chapter cannot be exhausted because of their large number and the fact that they took place at his hands in most of his states, whether they asked him questions or not, whatever circumstances dictated. These are the most numerous of his stunning miracles Al-Qad.i `Iyad. said in al-Shifa’: “His knowledge of the unseen counts among those miracles of his that are known categorically and definitely, coming to us through mass transmissions with a vast number of narrators and congruent meanings.”[2]

The Prophet’s familiarity with and knowledge of the unseen was a well-known and universally recognized fact among both the believers and the unbelievers to the point that one of them would say to the other, “Hush! By Allah, even if there is none among us to tell him, the very stones and pebbles would tell him.”[3] Al-Bukhari narrated from Ibn `Umar (ra): “We kept away from conversation and leisurely talk to our women lest some revelation come down concerning us. After the Prophet died we spoke more freely.”[4] Al-Bayhaqi narrated from Sahl ibn Sa`d al-Sa`idi (ra): “I swear by Allah that some of us would refrain from doing something with his wife as he and she lay together under the same sheet for fear some Qur’anic revelation should come down concerning them.”[5] `Abd Allah ibn Rawah.a said (ra):

Among us is the Messenger of Allah reciting His Book
As the radiant light cleaves the true dawn’s sky.
He showed us guidance after blindness and our hearts
Now firmly know that all he says will take place.[6]

and H.assan ibn Thabit said (ra):

A Prophet who sees around him what others do not
And recites the Book of Allah in every assembly!
If he says something of a day which he has not yet seen
What he says is confirmed on the morrow or the next day.[7]

The above two quatrains put to rest the odd claim of the author of Taqwiyat al-Iman that the Prophet did not know what would happen on the next day on the grounds that he said, “Avoid saying this” to the slave-girl reciting poetry when she said, “Among us is a Prophet that knows what happens tomorrow.”[8] The reason for this order is not because he did not know – since it is established that Allah (swt) is {the knower of the Unseen, and He reveals unto none His secret save unto every messenger whom He has chosen} (72:26-27) and that He revealed to the Prophet knowledge of the future until the Day of Judgment and much of the Hereafter as well – but because knowledge of the unseen was attributed to him in absolute terms when only Allah knows the unseen in absolute terms.[9] Coming from the mouth of a child not yet qualified to pray,[10] such an assertion was reminiscent of the popular belief unbecoming of a Prophet but typical of the false claims of seers, oracles, astrologers etc. that they could, of their own devices, know the future, to which Allah (swt) said (No soul knoweth what it will earn tomorrow) (31:34). Hence, the Prophet , in one version, added by way of explanation, “Only Allah knows what happens tomorrow”[11] i.e. independently of anyone and with an absolute knowledge.

Rising of the sun from the west

Islam is the only religion that prophesies that the sun will rise from the West, instead of from rising from the East, in the the End Times, before Day of Judgement. Both the Quran and the Hadith affirm that this phenomenon will take place. The occurrence of this phenomenon is considered in Islam as one of the major signs that indicate the Day of Judgement is close.

Allah says in the Qur’an:

  لا ينفع نفسا إيمانها لم تكن آمنت من قبل أو كسبت في إيمانها خيرا  .  6 / الأنعام / الآية 158

” No good will it do to a person to believe then, if he believed not before, nor earned good (by performing deeds of righteousness) through his faith.”    (Surah Al-An’aam 6:158)

This verse is referring to the rising of the sun from the West, according to the opinion of the majority of Quran commentators such as Tabari and Ibn Kathir.

Imam Tabari, after mentioning the different opinions of the commentators writes, “The most correct opinion in regards to the meaning of this verse is that what is apparent from the reports narrated from the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم   that he said, “Becoming a Believer will be of no benefit after the sun rises from the West.”    (Tabari)
