Holy Prophet (SWS) – Three Days before

Three days before his death, when the Holy Prophet (sws) visited the house of Umm Al-Mumineen, Hazrat Maimuna, he said: “Gather my wives.” All the spouses gathered. The Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) asked: “Do you all allow me to spend the day of illness with Ayesha (RA)?” They all said: O Messenger of Allah! Then he wanted to get up but could not get up, so Hazrat Ali Ibn Abi Talib and Hazrat Fazl bin Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) went ahead and lifted the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) with support.  They started to lead him towards the cell. At that time, when the Companions saw the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) for the first time in this state (of illness and weakness), they began to ask each other in panic. What happened to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)? What happened to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)? So the companions started gathering in the mosque and there was a rush in the mosque. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was sweating profusely. Hazrat Ayesha (may Allah be pleased with her) says that I have never seen anyone sweat so much in my life. And says: “I would hold the blessed hand of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and place it on his holy face because the hand of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was more honorable and pure than mine.” She further says that the Beloved of God, peace and blessings be upon him The only word that was heard from was that “There is no god but Allah. Death also has its hardships.” Meanwhile, inside the mosque, the noise of the people began to increase due to fear of the Prophet (peace be upon him). The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) asked: “What are these sounds like?” It was said: O Messenger of Allah!  These people are afraid of your condition. He said, “Take me to them.” Then he intended to get up, but he could not get up, so 7 glasses of water were poured on him (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). Then he went somewhere and after some relief, he was lifted from the support and brought to the pulpit. This was the last sermon of the Prophet (peace be upon him) and the last words of the Prophet (peace be upon him). He said: “O people …! Maybe you are afraid of my death?” Everyone said: “Yes, O Messenger of Allah.” He said: “O people …! The place of my meeting with you is not the world, the place of my meeting with you is the pool (Kawthar), by God, as if I am seeing it (the pool of Kawthar) from here, O people …! I do not fear for you any hardship, but I fear for you the world (of abundance), that you may compete with one another in this (matter) as those before you did.  (The world) will destroy you as it destroyed them. ” Then he added: “O people …! Fear Allah in the matter of prayer, fear Allah. Fear Allah in the matter of prayer, fear Allah.” (That is, make a vow that you will observe the prayers, and repeat the same thing over and over again.) Then he said: “O people …! Fear Allah in the matter of women, fear Allah in the matter of women, I enjoin you to treat women well.” He added: “O people …! Allah gave a servant the choice to choose the world or to choose that which is with Allah, so he chose that which is with Allah” No one understood the purpose of this sentence of the Holy Prophet (sws) even though he meant his own caste. While Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddiq (RA) was the only person who understood this sentence and started crying and stood up crying loudly and interrupted the Prophet (PBUH). “Our fathers sacrificed on you, our mothers sacrificed on you, our children sacrificed on you, our wealth sacrificed on you …” They cry and say the same words. The Companions looked at Abu Bakr Siddiq (disgustingly) and asked him how he had interrupted the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him).  The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) defended Abu Bakr in these words: “O people …! Leave Abu Bakr, for there is not one of you who has done us any good and we have not rewarded him, except Abu Bakr, who has not been able to repay him.”  In return, I left it to Allah Almighty. All the doors that open in the mosque (of the Prophet) should be closed, except for the door of Abu Bakr, which will never be closed. ” Finally, before his death, he said as a last prayer for the Muslims: “May Allah give you shelter, protect you, help you, support you.” And the last thing he said to the Ummah before leaving the pulpit was: “O people …! Send my greetings to every one of my people who will come till the Day of Judgment.” Then the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was carried home again. Meanwhile, Hazrat Abdul Rahman bin Abi Bakr (RA) came to Khidmat-e-Aqdas and he had a toothpick in his hand. The Holy Prophet (SWS) started looking at the toothbrush but could not ask for it due to severe illness.  So Ayesha (RA) understood from the sight of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and she took a toothpick from Hazrat Abdul Rahman (RA) and placed it in the blessed combustion of the Holy Prophet (PBUH), but the Holy Prophet (PBUH) took it.  When she could not use it, Ayesha took a toothpick from the Holy Prophet (SWS) and softened it with her mouth and then returned it to the Holy Prophet (SWS) so that Dahan Mubarak would be wet with it. Says: “The last thing that went into the stomach of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was my saliva, and it was the grace of Allah that blessed me that he combined the saliva of me and the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) before his death.” Umm Al-Mu’minin Hazrat Ayesha Siddiqah (May Allah be pleased with her) further says: Then Fatimah, the daughter of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), came and wept as soon as she came, so that the Prophet (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) could not get up, because it was the custom of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) that whenever Fatima (peace and blessings of Allah be upon her) came.  Allah (SWT) used to kiss him on the forehead. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: O Fatima!  “Come closer …” Then the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said something in her ear and Fatima wept even more. Seeing them weeping like this, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said again: O Fatima!  “Come closer …” When he said something in her ear again, she became happy. After the demise of the Holy Prophet (SWS), I asked Fatima (RA) what was the thing that made her cry and then express her happiness? Fatima (May Allah be pleased with her) said: The first time (when I approached) he said: “Fatima! I am going to die tonight”. On which I cried … ” When the Holy Prophet (SWS) saw me weeping profusely, he (SWS) said: “Fatima! You will be the first in my family to meet me …” Which made me happy … Aisha (May Allah be pleased with her) said: Then the Prophet (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) ordered everyone to leave the house and said to me: “Ayesha! Come closer to me …” The Prophet (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) leaned towards his wife and raised his hands towards the sky and said: I like that great friendship.  (I embrace the companionship of Allah, the Prophets, the truthful, the martyrs and the righteous.) Siddiqah Ayesha (May Allah be pleased with her) said: “I understand that they have chosen the Hereafter.” Gabriel (Peace be upon him) appeared in the holy service and said: “Messenger of Allah! The angel of death is standing at the door and wants honor. He did not ask permission from anyone before you.” He (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Gabriel! Let him come …” The angel of death entered the house of the Prophet (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and said: “Peace be upon you and the Messenger of Allah! Allah has sent me to know your desire whether you want to stay in this world or go to Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala?” He said: “I like high-quality friendships, I like high-quality friendships.” The The angel of death stood at the head of the Prophet (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and said: “O pure soul …!” O soul of Muhammad bin Abdullah …! Go towards the pleasure of Allah …! To the Lord who is pleased, who is not angry …! ” Aisha (May Allah be pleased with her) said: Then the hand of the Holy Prophet (SWS) came down, and the blessed head began to be heavy on my chest, I understood that the Holy Prophet (SWS) had passed away.  I didn’t understand anything else so I left my room and opened the door towards the mosque and said … “The Messenger of Allah has passed away …! The Messenger of Allah has passed away …!” The mosque began to resound with sighs and groans. On the other hand, Ali, (May Allah bless him and grant him peace), sat where he was standing and then he did not have the strength to move. On the other hand, ‘Uthman ibn Affan began to shake hands like innocent children. And ‘Umar raised his sword and said: “Beware! Whoever says that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) is dead, I will blow the neck of such a person …! My lord has gone to meet Allah Almighty as Moses (peace be upon him) went to meet his Lord.”  “They will return, they will return very soon …! Now whoever spreads the news of death, I will kill him …” On this occasion, the most restrained, tolerant and patient person was Syedna Abu Bakr Siddiq.  He entered the Prophet’s room, laid his head on the blessed chest of the Prophet (Peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and wept. Were the sayings: وآآآ خليلاه ، وآآآ صفياه ، وآآآ حبيباه ، وآآآ نبياه (My dear friend …! My sincere companion …! My beloved …! My prophet …!) Then he kissed the Prophet on the forehead and said: “O Messenger of Allah! Live in purity and depart from this world in purity.” Abu Bakr (RA) came out and delivered a sermon: “Whoever worships Muhammad (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) should hear that the Prophet (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) has perished, and whoever worships Allah should know that Allah is the Ever-Living, the Eternal.” The sword fell from the hand of Syedna Umar. Umar (May Allah be pleased with him) said: Then, I started looking for a place of solitude where I could sit alone and cry … The Prophet (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was buried. Fatima (May Allah be pleased with her) says: “How did you manage to put dust on the Holy Face (PBUH)…?” Then she said: “ابتاه, ابجاب ربا دعاء, أبتاه, جنة الفردوس مأواه, أبتاه, جبلي جبريل ننااه.” (My dear Baba Jan, that he walked at the call of his Lord, my dear Baba Jan, that he reached his abode in Paradise, my dear Baba Jan, that we inform Jibreel of his coming.) Praise be to Allah.  I have never posted a better message than this till today. Therefore, I request you to read it with complete peace and contentment. Inshallah, your faith will be refreshed. ”

Hazrat Ali – Ali’s (R.A) Fast

Everyone fasted in the house of Hazrat Ali. Hazrat Fatima’s (R.A) two young children also fasted. The time of Maghrib is about to come.  Go and make four loaves, there is no more grain in the house.  She placed the first loaf in front of her husband Ali.  The second loaf in front of his eldest son Hassan.  The third loaf in front of his youngest son Hussain.  And he put the fourth loaf in front of him.  The call to prayer started in Masjid-e-Nabawi. Everyone started fasting with bread. But friends, it was Fatima who ate half of the bread and started tying half of the bread with a dupatta.  Hazrat Ali saw this and said, “O Fatima, you are not hungry. There is only one loaf of bread. You are tying half of it in a dupatta.” Fatima said !!  O Ali, it may be that my dear father (Muhammad) did not get anything in Iftar, how can a daughter whose father has not eaten anything may eat ?? Fatima tied bread in her dupatta and walked away  On the other hand, our Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to offer Maghrib prayers Seeing Hazrat Fatima standing at the door, he calls her Hazrat.  O Fatima, how are you at the door? Fatima said: O Messenger of Allah, take me inside. There were tears in the eyes of Hazrat Fatima.  He said that when he ate Iftar bread, he remembered that he may not have eaten it.  Therefore, you have brought half a loaf of bread tied with a dupatta. Seeing the bread, tears came to the eyes of our Prophet and he said: O Fatima, what good is it to bring bread, otherwise the fourth night would have gone out in the same condition of your father!  The two look at each other and start crying.  Allah’s Apostle asked for bread, Fatima said Baba Jan will feed the bread with her own hands today then she started feeding with her own hands!  The bread ran out and Hazrat Fatima started crying.  The Holy Prophet saw and said, “Why is Fatima crying now?”  He said, “Father, what will happen tomorrow?”  Who will come to feed tomorrow ?? Will the stove burn in my house tomorrow ?? Will the stove burn in your house tomorrow ?? The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) placed his beloved hand on Fatima’s head and said, ‘O Fatima, be patient and I am also patient.  With our patience, Allah will forgive the sin of the sinners of the Ummah !!  Allah is the Greatest. This is the love that the Prophet had for us, for the Ummah.  We are this sinful nation.  For whom the Prophet was hungry, the Prophet’s daughter was hungry !! And what are we doing for them on the Day of Resurrection?  What will you all answer!  !

Useless Degrees

Standard institutions and authoritative degree titles are exempt from this criticism
 I have a request from all my brothers and sisters to consider one thing that for the last ten to fifteen years in the field of education in our dear country Pakistan a negative trend has taken hold that mushroom-growing of substandard private educational institutions has appeared everywhere and in every city.  Without all the necessary facilities and faculty, the affiliated campuses of the universities have become ubiquitous. Our government institutions were not up to standard. Now only a fraction of the private institutions were left. The spectacle is that such degree titles have been coined.  There will be no need for employment in the department, industry or organization.  These degrees can only be used to call an engineer or a doctor but do not provide the student with any real life skills or expertise.  Such degrees are just a piece of paper and are used only for the satisfaction of the ego or as a pastime. A student who cannot get admission in a government university or a standard private university due to lack of merit;  After enrolling in any degree title in any campus with percentage marks, after wasting five years and Rs 3.4 million of his/her parents, he/she gets a degree which will never be required for any job.  These students are doing a great injustice to their parents by spending all the savings of their parents even though they are not qualified so that they can live a few years and a life of luxury without any responsibility.  And the parents oppress their children by robbing them of everything and adding a useless Babu to the society when the useless Babu’s CV is from an agricultural university instead of an engineering university.  If Structural Engineering is written then the fate of that CV will be trash heap.

Part II Such degree titles have been coined that it is surprising and sometimes even laughable.  The same institution is offering six, six degrees with similar names. This is not education. Such fraud is killing. Degrees are being sold to you. Due to the length of this article, these degree titles cannot be mentioned, but you can go to any university website and see for yourself. It will be estimated that there are hundreds of degree titles whose real name is BS Time Killing. Should there be a Society which has a big role to play in advancing such superficial thinking which considers manual work and skills as defects. Please do not kill the creation of these children and let them make some decisions for themselves if your child is a good plumber, welder,  If he can become an electrician or a technician, don’t change his life by putting fake BS along with his name. Western societies are built by skilled people.  Most of the inventions are made by craftsmen and not by graduates. That is why our societies have not invented anything for centuries. Get out of the cycle of degrees and make society more efficient.  While practicing religion, do not find fault with handicrafts. Respect the skilled. Society needs useful citizens, not graduates. Once upon a time, the Bulhar University of Faisalabad (a group that printed fake degrees) was famous. Now, there is a Bulhar University in every city.  Please avoid this fraud.  Don’t do Software Engineering from Urdu University and BS Computer Science from Kacha Kuha University This is not a personal criticism, it is a collective tragedy of society If you agree in part, forward this message with any additions or deletions.

Hazrat Umar (RA) – Never Made Any Wish

Hazrat Umar (RA) never made any wish. One day, when he wanted to eat fish, he expressed it to his slave Yerka. Yerka was your most loyal slave. He said to Jerka, “Today I would love to eat fish. But the problem is, you have to go eight miles to get fish from the river and come back eight miles to get back.” Then he said, “Don’t let me eat. It is not good to put yourself in so much trouble for a small desire to go eight miles and come back eight miles just for my fish. You may go leave, yerka”.  Then, they look into each others’ eyes. The slave says, “I have been your servant for many years but you never made any wish but today when you have made a wish, I thought in my heart that Hazrat Omar Farooq (RA) has made a wish for the first time and I will not fulfill it.? How can this be …” Yerka says, “When Mr. Umar went to offer Zuhr prayers, I knew that some guests had come to him and Asr would be there. Yerka says that I some guests behind Hazrat Umar and prayed two rak’ats of Sunnah. I was sitting on a horse of Arabian breed. I ran and reached the river. What is eight miles for an Arabian horse? When I got there, I bought a piece of fish and I came back before the ‘Asr prayer of Hazrat Umar (May Allah be pleased with him) and I tied the horse in the cool shade so that the sweat that came from it would dry.  Without looking at Hazrat Omar Farooq (RA) Yerks says that the sweat of the horse has dried up but due to the sweat the dust had accumulated on the horse which was clearly visible that the horse had gone somewhere on a journey then I thought that Hazrat Omar Farooq (RA) should not see it. 

Then I quickly took the horse to the well and bathed it quickly and brought it and tied it in the shade.  (What happens when we have desires, but we are afraid to fulfill those desires because our conscience is alive) He says that when Hazrat Umar Farooq came after offering Asr prayers, I also offered prayers behind him.
 When I came home, I said, “Allah has fulfilled your wish.” The fish has been arranged and I will serve the cooked fish in a short time. He said, “When I said this word, Mr. Omar Farooq (R.A) got up and went to the horse and turned his hand on the back of the horse.” He turned his hand on his legs and then went to his ears and picked up another ear of the horse and said, “Jerka, you have washed the whole horse, but you don’t remember wiping the sweat from behind the ears. And here you forgot to pour water.” Hazrat Omar knelt down on the ground and said “Oh, my friend, come here. I have no doubt in your loyalty And I’m not a better person, I am not a pious person, I ask for prayers O Allah, forgive me by equalizing my good and bad deeds. He did not show much piety and continued to say, “Friend, tell me one thing, if this horse cries out to Allah on the Day of Resurrection that Allah has given me a journey of 16 miles to fulfill one of my desires.”  Fixed O Allah, I had an animal, Was speechless A journey of 16 miles to fulfill a wish So tell me, JerKa, how can a weak man like me answer a horse’s question to his master? ” Yerka says, “I did not weep as much over the death of my father as I do today. I was tormented by this thought.”  In this way, give the horse a little extra fodder and distribute the fish that he has brought to the poor houses of Madinah and give them this fish and ask for your forgiveness and also for the forgiveness of old age.”

In Connection with Labour day – 1st May

The hands that made the wonders in the world like; the Taj Mahal, great wall of china, pyramids of Egypt; and the hands that work in the hot coal mines, blackening chimneys, and suffocating industries; and the hands that pierce the land, cut down the heaviest trees, pull the weightiest things and plying with heavier machines; and the shoulders that carry deadening loads, and are never afraid of shouldering any weight; and the feet that climb steeps with heavy weight on shoulders, walk uncovered on the burning texture of earth in the mid summer days, move even in the darkest of times for the search of labour; last but not the least, the deep wounds that appear on hands, shoulders and feet out of hardest labours belong to the labourers that spread the blessed living for others, mend the ways for other fellow beings, create the colours around for others and help the system running on alongwith the hope of running home and hearth of their own…Dear labourers! The world without you would have been a nightmare, the system without you would have been incongruous and the life without you would have been a living hell on the globe. Thank you all the labourers in the world. For you the world makers, system runners and colour fillers in life.

Gratitude unbounded 🙏🙏
Happy Labour Day- the 1st May.

Ramadan 2020: Why is it so important for Muslims Life

Ramadan 2020: Why is it so important for Muslims Life

The Muslim holy month is upon us once again, this year with many Muslim-majority nations under coronavirus lockdown.

25 Apr 2020 GMT+3

Ramadan is the holiest month for Muslims. Every year, Muslims around the world fast during daylight hours, but what is it really about?

What is Ramadan?

Ramadan is the ninth month in the Muslim lunar calendar. Healthy adult Muslims fast in Ramadan from dawn until dusk. This includes abstaining from drinking, eating, immoral acts and anger. Other acts of worship such as prayer, reading the Quran and charity are also encouraged during the holy month.

Muslims also believe the Quran was revealed in Ramadan.

During the holy month, Muslims wake up early to eat a pre-dawn meal called sehr, and they break their fast with a meal referred to as iftar.

It is common for mosques to host large iftars, especially for the poor and needy. Nightly prayers called Tarawih are also held in mosques after iftar.
Ramadan 2020: Why is it so important for Muslims Life

Different cultures have different traditions during Ramadan, whether it is a special food they must cook, or eating iftar with the extended family. Islamic tenets such as generosity inspired most of these traditions, including sharing food and inviting guests over for iftar.

However, this year Ramadan will most certainly be a less festive time, amid the coronavirus pandemic as all nations, including Muslims ones, take precautions to curb the spread of the virus by banning or limiting social gatherings, and closing mosques.

Saudi Arabia’s grand mufti Sheikh Abdulaziz al-Sheikh, the highest religious authority in the kingdom, asserted that prayers during Ramadan, including nightly Tarawee and Eid al-Fitr prayers, should be performed at home as the pandemic rages on around the world, Saudi newspaper Okaz reported.

When is Ramadan?

Since Ramadan is part of the lunar calendar, its date annually changes on the Gregorian calendar. Muslims tend to wait for the new month’s moon to appear before they announce the first day of Ramadan. However, they can still estimate the day beforehand.

This year Ramadan begins on Saturday, April 25 in most Muslim-majority nations

Other than fasting during Ramadan, Muslims also read the Quran, pray and give to charity [File: Issam Rimawi/Anadolu]

How long is Ramadan?

Lunar months last between 29 to 30 days depending on when the new moon is sighted. If the moon is not seen on the night of the 29th day, then Ramadan lasts for the full 30 days.

The Eid al-Fitr celebration marks the end of the month when Muslims celebrate a successful Ramadan of fasting and worship.

Why do Muslims fast during Ramadan?

Fasting is one of the five pillars of Islam. There is also a verse in the Quran that prescribes fasting for all Muslims who are mature and healthy enough to do so for the full day.

So Muslims fast as an act of worship, a chance to get closer to God, and a way to become more compassionate to those in need.

Fasting is also seen as a way to learn patience and break bad habits.

When does Ramadan end? 

This year, Monday, May 22, will be the 29th day of Ramadan for most Muslim nations in the Middle East.

These countries will be on the lookout for the Eid moon that evening. If it is sighted, the first day of Eid al-Fitr will be observed on Sunday, May 23.
