Prophet Muhammad

Who Were the Kharijis?

Source : Lost islamic history / 02 Sep 2014

Throughout Islamic history, groups have arisen from time to time advocating radically new and divergent ways of thinking about the religion. One of the most radical and violent of these groups emerged during the political mayhem of ‘Ali’s caliphate, which lasted from 656 to 661. Known as the Kharijis, they emerged from a radical political position and went on to develop particularly extreme beliefs that put them at odds with most Muslims. While they never became a major political or religious force in the Muslim world, they had major impact on their own times and their ideology has been replicated numerous times by other fringe groups throughout the past 1400 years.

 

Things that made the Prophet (pbuh) angry

Source : IslamAwareness / 01 Sep 2014

We mentioned earlier that the Prophet (peace be upon him) never got angry for anything personal. No matter what unbelievers said about him, leveling any false accusations against him, he would always control himself, showing no sign of overreaction. Indeed, he kept his cool in all situations. However, if some violation of the limits God has ordered to be observed, the Prophet (peace be upon him) could be very angry, and his anger showed in his face.

 

Hudhayfah Ibn al-Yaman

Hudhayfah Ibn al-Yaman was one of the early converts to Islam and shared a very close relationship with the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be to him). His father al-Yaman was from Makkah, but had to flee to Medina as he had killed someone in Makkah. Though the ban for him to enter Makkah was lifted after some time, he chose to make Medina his place of residence and hence Hudhayfah, despite being a Makkan, had his upbringing in Medina.

 

The Water of Zamzam

It is the best water on earth. It is also the most ancient water on earth because it was discovered about five thousand years ago. According to laboratory analysis, it is the most pure water on earth. Moreover, it functions as food and as a cure for diseases as mentioned by the Prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ). In addition, it is found in the most sacred place on earth. Is there any other source of water on earth that can rival its virtues?

 

If they would only put their trust in Allah

Source : Islam Today / 28 aug 2014

Reliance on Allah, as mentioned in this Prophetic statement, is referred to in Arabic as tawakkul. It literally means to place one’s affairs in the hands of another.

There is a name of Allah associated with this word: al-Wakīl (the Disposer of Affairs). The Qur’ān refers to Allah by this name fourteen times.

 

Helping your Companions

Source : Hadith a day / 25 Aug 2014

Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri (radi Allahu anhu) reported: While we were travelling with the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam), a rider came and began to stare on the right and on the left. The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam), said, “He who has an extra mount should hand it over to one who has none, and he who possesses surplus provision, should give it to him who is without provision.” He named various kinds of possessions until we began to think (realise) that none of us had any right to anything surplus.

[Sahih Muslim]
