There is No Sin in Islam which makes you a Disbeliever (Video)

DOWNLOADBUTTONpasstheknowledge-ptkbannerheadapp

info-pictogram1 It is widely accepted in Islam that there is not even one sin, which when committed, will take you out of the fold of Islam and cause you to be branded a kafir or disbeliever. This includes sins such as drinking alcohol, fornication, adultery, as well as other major sins. Rather it is ones disbelief, which as the name implies, causes one to become a disbeliever. An example would be saying that alcohol is allowed, and denying the verses Allah has revealed in the Quran regarding the prohibition of intoxicants. In this case the person has made halal what Allah has made haram, and rightfully deserves the title of kafir.

What Are the Inner Dimensions of Fasting?

By: Abu Hamid Al-Ghazali

It should be known that there are three grades of fasting: ordinary, special and extra-special.

Ordinary fasting means abstaining from food, drink and sexual satisfaction.

Special fasting means keeping one’s ears, eyes, tongue, hands and feet-and all other organs-free from sin.

Extra-special fasting means fasting of the heart from unworthy concerns and worldly thoughts, in total disregard of everything but God.

See Not What Displeases God

A chaste regard, restrained from viewing anything that is blameworthy or reprehensible, or which distracts the heart and diverts it from the remembrance of God. The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:

“The furtive glance is one of the poisoned arrows of Satan, on him be God’s curse. Whoever forsakes it for fear of God, will receive from Him, great and gracious is He, a faith the sweetness of which he will find within his heart.” (Al-Mundhiri)

Jabir relates from Anas that Prophet Muhammad said:

“Five things break a man’s fast: lying, backbiting, scandal mongering, perjury and a lustful gaze.” (Al-Albani)

Speak No Evil

Guarding one’s tongue from twaddle, lying, backbiting, scandal mongering, obscenity, rudeness, wrangling and controversy; making it observe silence and occupying it with remembrance of God and with recitation of the Quran.

The Prophet said:“Fasting is a shield; so when one of you is fasting he should not use foul or foolish talk. If someone attacks him or insults him, let him say: “I am fasting, I am fasting!” (Muslim)

Hear No Evil

Closing one’s ears to everything reprehensible; for everything unlawful to utter is likewise unlawful to listen to. That is why God equated the eavesdropper with the profiteer “(They like to) listen to falsehood, to devour anything forbidden:

{Listeners to calumny and consumers of unlawful gain. If they come to you, then judge between them or turn away from them. If you turn away from them, they cannot harm you at all; and if you judge, then judge justly between them; God loves the just.} (Al-Maidah 5: 42)

Do No Evil

It is meaningless to fast, to abstain from lawful food, only to break one’s Fast on what is unlawful

Keeping all limbs and organs away from sin: keeping the hands and feet from reprehensible deeds, and the stomach from questionable food at the time for breaking fast.

It is meaningless to fast, to abstain from lawful food, only to break one’s Fast on what is unlawful.

The object of Fasting is to induce moderation. The Prophet said:

“How many of those who fast, get nothing from it but hunger and thirst!” (Al-Albani)

Avoid Overeating

Of what use is the fast as a means of conquering God’s enemy and abating appetite, if at the time of breaking it not only makes up for all one has missed during the daytime, but perhaps also indulges in a variety of extra food?

It has even become the custom to stock up for Ramadan with all kinds of foodstuffs, so that more is consumed during that time than in the course of several other months put together.

It is well known that the object of fasting is to experience hunger and to check desire, in order to reinforce the soul in piety.

If the stomach is starved from early morning till evening, so that its appetite is aroused and its craving intensified, and it is then offered delicacies and allowed to eat its fill, its taste for pleasure is increased and its force exaggerated; passions are activated which would have lain dormant under normal conditions.

It is therefore essential to cut down one’s intake of what one would consume on a normal night, when not fasting. No benefit is derived from the fast if one consumes as much as he or she would usually take during the day and night combined.

Look to God with Fear and Hope

After the fast has been broken, the heart should swing like a pendulum between fear and hope. For one does not know if one’s fast will be accepted, so that one will find favor with God, or whether it will be rejected, leaving one among those He abhors. This is how one should be at the end of any act of worship one performs.

This is an excerpt from Imam Al Ghazali’s book “Inner Dimension of Islamic Worship”.

Documentary: There’s No Tomorrow (Video)

info-pictogram1 There’s No Tomorrow is a half-hour animated documentary about resource depletion, energy and the impossibility of infinite growth on a finite planet.

Inspired by the pro-capitalist cartoons of the 1940s, the film is an introduction to the energy dilemmas facing the world today.

“The average American today has available the energy equivalent of 150 slaves, working 24 hours a day. Materials that store this energy for work are called fuels. Some fuels contain more energy than others. This is called energy density.”

“Economic expansion has resulted in increases in atmospheric nitrous oxide and methane, ozone depletion, increases in great floods, damage to ocean ecosystems, including nitrogen runoff, loss of rainforest and woodland, increases in domesticated land, and species extinctions.”

“The global food supply relies heavily on fossil fuels. Before WW1, all agriculture was Organic. Following the invention of fossil fuel derived fertilisers and pesticides there were massive improvements in food production, allowing for increases in human population.The use of artificial fertilisers has fed far more people than would have been possible with organic agriculture alone.”
