Welcome to all brothers and sisters in Islam and to all non-Muslims who are interested. This is some introductory information for all those curious to learn more about our way of life. What is Islam all about? Islam is the religion of the oneness of God, of belief in all of His prophets and messengers (peace be upon them), belief in the angels, belief in the Hereafter, belief in His holy scriptures, and belief in predestination. Islam is an Arabic word which means "submission (to God)". The condition of the Muslim in his worship is fear of God's wrath and hope in His mercy. These two are like the wings of a bird and they guide us to righteousness. Entering the Religion of Allah is easy The Shahada The Shahada is our testimony of faith, it is the testimony of the oneness and uniqueness of Allah. The one who utters the words "La ilaha illaAllah, Muhammad ar-rasool Allah" (There is no god except God and Muhammad is His Messenger), while believing them firmly in his/her heart, has entered Islam. It is not necessary to recite it before witnesses, you can do it by yourself and don't have to tell anyone else. The Shahada is the necessary condition of success in the Hereafter. It was narrated by Mu'adh ibn Jabal: The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "O Mu`adh! Do you know what Allah's Right upon His slaves is?" I said, "Allah and His Apostle know best." The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "To worship Him (Allah) Alone and to join none in worship with Him (Allah). Do you know what their right upon Him is?" I replied, "Allah and His Apostle know best." The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "Not to punish them (if they do so). (Bukhari 7373) Allah appreciates those who remember Him The Prophet (ﷺ) said: "Allah Almighty says: Whoever comes with a good deed will have the reward of ten like it and even more. Whoever comes with an evil deed will be recompensed for one evil deed like it or he will be forgiven. Whoever draws close to me by the length of a hand, I will draw close to him by the length of an arm. Whoever draws close to me the by length of an arm, I will draw close to him by the length of a fathom. Whoever comes to me walking, I will come to him running. Whoever meets me with enough sins to fill the earth, not associating any idols with me, I will meet him with as much forgiveness." Practicing Islam is easy The five daily prayers The salah (ritual prayer) is the means by which Muslims draw closer to Allah and seek protection in Him from the evil of sin. The first prayer of the day is the Fajr prayer, it is observed between dawn and sunrise. The second prayer is the Dhuhr prayer, it is observed between midday and the afternoon. The third prayer is the Asr prayer, it is observed between afternoon and sunset. The fourth prayer is the Maghrib prayer, it is observed between the sunset and dusk. The fifth prayer is the Isha prayer, it is observed between dusk and midnight. There are other voluntary prayers along with these. Fasting The sawm (ritual fasting) is the third pillar of Islam and one of the greatest acts of worship. Giving up your desire and your food for the sake of Allah is a virtuous deed of especially high value. Muslims are obligated to fast for 30 days of the year during the month of Ramadan. The fast is different from other acts of worship because it is difficult. This is the reason why it will cause those who used to practice it to be rewarded handsomely on the Day of Judgment. Fasting begins at the start of Fajr time and lasts until the start of Maghrib. In this time, you cannot eat or drink anything and you can't touch your partner with desire. Zakat The zakat (charity) is an obligation upon the Muslims who possess wealth to give to those who do not. 2.5% of your wealth is contributed yearly to help those in need and it is a part of caring for the poor and needy that is central to our religion. Hajj The Hajj is the pilgrimage to Mecca that Muslims must perform at least once in their lifetimes if they are able. The Kaaba, which is located in Mecca, is the holiest site in Islam. Dua Dua (supplication) is not among the five pillars of Islam but its importance merits it being mentioned here. Dua is the most powerful tool of the Muslim and a great way of drawing closer to Allah. The one who wants to make Dua simply raises his hands and calls upon Allah for whatever he wants or needs. The Prophet (ﷺ) said: "Dua is worship". Allah accepts the Dua of everyone, if you are patient, sincere and call upon Him alone. Character and morals The Muslim should hold himself or herself to a higher standard than the rest of society when it comes to embodying an upright character, morality and virtue. Islam enjoins truthfulness, kindness, caring for the needy, obedience to parents, upholding ties to family, speaking that which is good, defending the oppressed, and much more of good and upright behavior we find in the Qur'an and the Prophetic tradition. And Allah knows best. For more on the teaching and practice of Islam refer to our other threads: >>210 >>211 >>212 >>251

Know Your Enemy

KNOW YOUR ENEMY: SATAN All praise is due to Allah Who warned us against the accursed Satan, the enemy of mankind. إِنَّ الشَّيْطَانَ لَكُمْ عَدُوٌّ فَاتَّخِذُوهُ عَدُوًّا ۚ إِنَّمَا يَدْعُو حِزْبَهُ لِيَكُونُوا مِنْ أَصْحَابِ السَّعِيرِ Surely Satan is an enemy to you, so take him as an enemy. He only invites his followers to become inmates of the Blaze. (Qur'an 35:6) Jihad ash-Shaytaan (Struggle against Satan) is an individual duty upon the Muslims. We must recognize our enemy to effectively fight him. The struggle begins with knowing the enemy. Shaytaan is the greatest deceiver who wants us to turn away from God and away from guidance. He makes evil deeds seem good and good deeds seem evil. The whispers of Shaytaan are such that one believes them to be his own thoughts, but they are in fact from Shaytaan; they must therefore be actively recognized. They include doubts in the religion, doubts in your deeds, doubts in yourself, evil thoughts about others, and anything encouraging laziness, cowardice or weakness, or sowing enmity between the believers, which he seeks to corrupt the Muslim with. The Muslim should not feel safe from the attacks of Shaytaan, because he himself says: ثُمَّ لَآتِيَنَّهُم مِّن بَيْنِ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَمِنْ خَلْفِهِمْ وَعَنْ أَيْمَانِهِمْ وَعَن شَمَائِلِهِمْ ۖ وَلَا تَجِدُ أَكْثَرَهُمْ شَاكِرِينَ "Then I will come to them from before them and from behind them and on their right and on their left, and You will not find most of them grateful" (Qur'an 7:17) The Shaytaan seeks to distract humanity from God's path through trivial games and diversions, and through wealth and children, and through all manners of temptations. Unfortunately we see that most of humanity has fallen for his false promises. Taking Satan as an enemy does not mean fearing him, rather it means fearing Allah. Satan has no power or authority over the world, his whispers (waswasa) are his only weapon. Satan does not directly tell a believer to commit sin, rather he moves in small steps toward greater and greater misdeeds, hoping to turn the believers into disbelievers. Satan knows the weaknesses of human beings and exploits them for his evil goals. Among these weaknesses is anger, which Satan exploits to make a person do things he will regret later, and grief, for Satan constantly seeks to bring grief and sadness to the Muslims. Jihad ash-Shaytaan How do we fight Satan and his whispers? The Muslim should seek refuge with Allah the moment he encounters Satan's whispers. Saying "أعوذُ بِٱللَّهِ مِنَ ٱلشَّيۡطَٰنِ ٱلرَّجِيمِ" "audhu billahi min ash-shaytaani r-rajeem" This is the first and most important way for a believer to remove Satan's whispers. Further, Jihad ash-Shaytaan is twofold: The first way is through certainty in our faith. We strive against all doubts and suspicions concerning our religion and establish strong, firm faith in our hearts. The second way is through patience. The believer patiently endures all temptations and desires Satan seeks to distract him with. Therefore Jihad ash-Shaytaan concerns of certainty and patience. This is the way of salvation from this greatest enemy to mankind. We seek refuge in Allah from the accursed Shaytaan. May his work be fruitless.

Questions That Don't Deserve Their Own Thread.

R: 10 / I: 3 / P: 1

All Kufr is One Religion and the Kuffaar are One Nation

All Kufr (Disbelief) is one religion and the kuffaar (disbelievers) are one nation. Allah Ta'ala says (the meaning): "As for the disbelievers, they are guardians of one another. And unless you ˹believers˺ act likewise, there will be great oppression and corruption in the land." (al-Anfal 73) Allah has decreed there to be two camps of mankind and jinnkind in this dunya: The party of God and the party of Satan. The followers of Truth and the followers of falsehoods. Those on the straight path and those on the deviant paths. And this has been true since the days of Habil and Qabil and it's true to this day. Whatever numerous other paths exist besides the Straight Path of Islam: All of them are the same path, because they all lead to the same destination (the Fire). The Kuffaar will always unite and conspire against the Muslims, and they will do this even if they have diametrically opposed ideologies. The most succinct example of this being the way Jews and Christians are uniting in love and support of one another, even though the Jews hate and reject Jesus (a.s), whom the Christians claim to love. If they do love him, why are they siding with a people who hates him against a people who also loves him? It's because all the kuffaar are one nation. All of the Kuffaar are one nation who help and support each other against Islam, whether they are Jews, Christians, Atheists, Buddhists, Hindus or whoever else. Therefore, the Muslims must likewise become one nation in support of each other and in support of the truth. And therefore, the Muslims must not become allies of the Kuffaar against other Muslims. And unless this is fulfilled, "there will be great oppression and corruption in the land" as the verse says, and we see this happening today.

Dhu al-Qarnayn

How do Muslims explain Surat al-Kahf? All evidence points to it being directed lifted from Syriac versions of the Alexander Romance, parts of the Surah being almost exact quotations and paraphrases of said work, which of course predates the Qur'an. How do Muslims explain the fact that the 'horns' of Dhu al-Qurnayn's name refer to the horns of Alexander the Great that appear on coins circulating in the Middle East, which were of course the horns of the pagan god Ammon? And this said, where is the wall of Yajuj and Majuj? I believe this to be the weakest part of the Qur'an.

First time on this board, thought I'd ask a question about Islam in general. For context, I am a British-born Christian, lived here all my life, and all that jazz. I've been hearing the same few things from my local church, supposedly disproving Islam and the validity of Muhammed. I wanted to ask you guys, do you have any rebuttals or comments on what I'm about to give you? The Quran says, And if he (Muhammad SAW) had forged a false saying concerning Us (Allah), We surely should have seized him by his right hand (or with power and might), And then certainly should have cut off his life artery (Aorta), (Quran 69:44-46, Muhsin Khan) Sometime after Muhammad ate poisoned meat and was dying he exclaimed, ….Narrated ‘Aisha: The Prophet in his ailment in which he died, used to say, “O ‘Aisha! I still feel the pain caused by the food I ate at Khaibar, and at this time, I feel as if my aorta is being cut from that poison.” (Sahih Bukhari 5:59:713) From what is being said in the previous two passages, to my understanding, it's saying that Muhammed had died the death of somebody who had lied to Muslims of that time and falsified the word of God.

"The Mohammedan religion would have been much more compatible to us than Christianity. Why did it have to be Christianity with its meekness and flabbiness?" - Adolf Hitler >According to Speer, Hitler wished that the Umayyad Caliphate had won the Battle of Tours against the Franks in 732. This particular battle is credited with stopping the influx of Islam further into Europe and saving Christianity in Europe. "Had Charles Martel not been victorious at Poitiers — already, you see, the world had fallen into the hands of the Jews, so gutless a thing was Christianity! — then we should in all probability have been converted to Mohammedanism, that cult which glorifies heroism and which opens the seventh Heaven to the bold warrior alone. Then the Germanic races would have conquered the world. Christianity alone prevented them from doing so." - Adolf Hitler >According to Speer, Hitler was convinced that had Islam taken root in central Europe at this time, the Germanic people would have become the “heirs of that religion” with Islam being “perfectly suited to the Germanic temperament”. Hitler said that while the Arabs, on account of their “racial inferiority”, would have been unable to handle the harsh climate and conditions of the region, and that instead the Islamized Germans would have “stood at the head of this Mohammedan Empire”. A “religion that believed in spreading the faith by the sword and in subjugating all nations to that faith”. >As per the book “Islam and Nazi Germany’s War” written by David Motadel, Muslims fought for both the Allies and the Axis in World War II. However, only the Nazis and the Islamists had a “spiritual romance” sharing mutual hatred of the Jews, the Bolsheviks, and liberal democracy.

Jannah — Paradise Gardens beneath which rivers flow Just how great is the destination we are striving for? It is impossible for us to imagine the true beauty of Paradise. Here are just a few descriptions from our scriptures: Allah the Almighty says: إِنَّ الْمُتَّقِينَ فِي جَنَّاتٍ وَنَعِيمٍ Lo! those who kept their duty dwell in gardens and delight, فَاكِهِينَ بِمَا آتَاهُمْ رَبُّهُمْ وَوَقَاهُمْ رَبُّهُمْ عَذَابَ الْجَحِيمِ Happy because of what their Lord hath given them, and (because) their Lord hath warded off from them the torment of hell-fire. كُلُوا وَاشْرَبُوا هَنِيئًا بِمَا كُنتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ (And it is said unto them): Eat and drink in health (as a reward) for what ye used to do, مُتَّكِئِينَ عَلَىٰ سُرُرٍ مَّصْفُوفَةٍ ۖ وَزَوَّجْنَاهُم بِحُورٍ عِينٍ Reclining on ranged couches. And we wed them unto fair ones with wide, lovely eyes. (at-Tur 17-20) And He says: مَّثَلُ الْجَنَّةِ الَّتِي وُعِدَ الْمُتَّقُونَ ۖ فِيهَا أَنْهَارٌ مِّن مَّاءٍ غَيْرِ آسِنٍ وَأَنْهَارٌ مِّن لَّبَنٍ لَّمْ يَتَغَيَّرْ طَعْمُهُ وَأَنْهَارٌ مِّنْ خَمْرٍ لَّذَّةٍ لِّلشَّارِبِينَ وَأَنْهَارٌ مِّنْ عَسَلٍ مُّصَفًّى ۖ وَلَهُمْ فِيهَا مِن كُلِّ الثَّمَرَاتِ وَمَغْفِرَةٌ مِّن رَّبِّهِمْ ۖ كَمَنْ هُوَ خَالِدٌ فِي النَّارِ وَسُقُوا مَاءً حَمِيمًا فَقَطَّعَ أَمْعَاءَهُمْ A similitude of the Garden which those who keep their duty (to Allah) are promised: Therein are rivers of water unpolluted, and rivers of milk whereof the flavour changeth not, and rivers of wine delicious to the drinkers, and rivers of clear-run honey; therein for them is every kind of fruit, with pardon from their Lord. (Are those who enjoy all this) like those who are immortal in the Fire and are given boiling water to drink so that it teareth their bowels? (Muhammad 15) And He says: أُولَٰئِكَ لَهُمْ جَنَّاتُ عَدْنٍ تَجْرِي مِن تَحْتِهِمُ الْأَنْهَارُ يُحَلَّوْنَ فِيهَا مِنْ أَسَاوِرَ مِن ذَهَبٍ وَيَلْبَسُونَ ثِيَابًا خُضْرًا مِّن سُندُسٍ وَإِسْتَبْرَقٍ مُّتَّكِئِينَ فِيهَا عَلَى الْأَرَائِكِ ۚ نِعْمَ الثَّوَابُ وَحَسُنَتْ مُرْتَفَقًا As for such, theirs will be Gardens of Eden, wherein rivers flow beneath them; therein they will be given armlets of gold and will wear green robes of finest silk and gold embroidery, reclining upon throne therein. Blest the reward, and fair the resting-place! (al-Kahf 31) The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: "Allah said, I have prepared for My pious worshipers such things as no eye has ever seen, no ear has ever heard of, and nobody has ever thought of. All that is reserved, besides which, all that you have seen, is nothing." Then he recited:-- No soul knows what is kept hidden (in reserve) for them of joy as a reward for what they used to do. (32.17) (Sahih al Bukhari 4780) And he (peace and blessings be upon him) said: "In Paradise, there are a hundred levels, what is between every two levels is like what is between the heavens and the earth. Al-Firdaus is ts highest level, and from it the four rivers of Paradise are made to flow forth. So when you ask Allah, ask Him for Al-Firdaus." (Tirmidhi 2531) And it was narrated that a Bedouin came to the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) and said: "O Messenger of Allah, indeed, I love horses. Are there horses in Paradise?" The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said: "If you are admitted into Paradise, you shall be brought a horse of rubies with two wings, then you shall be carried on it, then it will fly with you wherever you want." (Tirmidhi 2544) And it was narrated: "We were seated with the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) when he looked towards the moon on the night of a full moon and said: "Indeed you shall be placed before your Lord and you shall see Him as you see this moon. You will see Him without trouble. So if you are able to keep from becoming overwhelmed from prayer before the rising of the sun and before its setting, then do so." Then he recited: And glorify the praises of your Lord before the setting." (Tirmidhi 2551) And the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said: "Indeed, Allah will say to the people of Paradise: O people of Paradise! They will say: 'We respond to You, O our Lord,and we are at Your service.' Then He will say: Are you pleased? They will say: 'Why should we not be pleased when You have given us what you have not given anyone from Your creation.' So He will say: I shall give you what is greater than that. They will say: 'And what is greater than that?' He will say: I shall cover you in My Pleasure and I shall not become angry with you ever." (Tirmidhi 2555) And he (peace and blessings be upon him) said: "Indeed in Paradise there is a sea of water, and a sea of honey,and a sea of milk, and a sea of wine, then the rivers shall split off afterwards." May Allah make all of us from the people of Jannah.

Repentance & Forgiveness

Let's have a thread discussing the topic of repentance and forgiveness in Islam. Among the 99 names of Allah are Ar Rahman (The Most Merciful); Ar Raheem (The Most Forgiving); Al Ghaffar (The Pardoner). Allah the Almighty says: >But those who committed misdeeds and then repented after them and believed - indeed your Lord, thereafter, is Forgiving and Merciful. (al-A'raf 153) Allah the Almighty says: >As for those who repent, believe, and do good deeds, they are the ones whose evil deeds Allah will change into good deeds. For Allah is All-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (al-Furqan 25) Allah the Almighty says: >He [Abraham] said: "And who despairs of the mercy of his Lord except for those astray?" (al-Hijr 56) Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) having said: >By Him in Whose Hand is my life, if you were not to commit sin, Allah would sweep you out of existence and He would replace (you by) those people who would commit sin and seek forgiveness from Allah, and He would have pardoned them. (Sahih Muslim, Kitab at-Tauba 13) Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) as saying: >Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, said: My mercy excels My wrath. (Sahih Muslim, Kitab at-Tauba 18)

Good Deeds

Good Deeds (Hasanat) These are the words of Almighty God: إِنَّ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَهُمْ جَنَّاتٌ تَجْرِي مِن تَحْتِهَا الْأَنْهَارُ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ الْفَوْزُ الْكَبِيرُ Lo! those who believe and do good works, theirs will be Gardens underneath which rivers flow. That is the Great Success. (Surah al Buruj 11) On Judgment Day we are all faced with the scale of deeds, wherein our bad deeds will be weighed against the good. Those whose bad deeds outweigh the good face the punishment of Allah. What are good deeds? There are a large variety of good deeds a Muslim can perform for the sake of Allah. Here are only a few examples: >Salah It is the first obligation of the Muslim after the Shahada and such a great thing that it deserves its own thread altogether. >Coming to the mosque Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said: Whoever goes to the mosque in the morning and evening, then Allah will prepare for him a place in Paradise for every morning and evening. (Sahih Bukhari 631) And he reported: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said: Whoever purifies himself for ablution in his house and he walks to a house among the houses of Allah in order to fulfill an obligation among the obligations of Allah, then one step of his will expiate his sins and another step will elevate his status. (Sahih Muslim 666) >Charity Giving charity and helping those in need is one of the best acts of worship. Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said: None gives charity from what is good, for Allah only accepts what is good, but that the Merciful takes it with His right hand. Even if it is a date, it is nurtured in the hand of the Merciful until it becomes greater than a mountain, just as one of you nurtures his young horse or camel. (Sahih Muslim 1014) >Dhikr & Dua Dhikr (rememberance of Allah) is doubtlessly a great and easy way to attain good deeds. Abdullah ibn Busr reported: A man said, “O Messenger of Allah, the laws of Islam are too many for me, so tell me something I can hold onto.” The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said: Keep your tongue moist with the remembrance of Allah. (Sunan al-Tirmidhi 3375) Abu Darda reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said: Shall I not tell you of the best of your deeds, which is the purest to your King, which raises you among your ranks, which is better for you than spending gold and money in charity, and which is better for you than meeting your enemy and striking the necks of each other? They said, “Of course!” The Prophet said: It is the remembrance of Allah Almighty. (Sunan al-Tirmidhi 3377) Words that are light on the tongue and heavy on the scale: Say SubhanAllah wa bihamdih, subhanAllah al Adheem سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وبِحَمْدِهِ سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ الْعَظِيمِ Other forms of Dhikr: Tasbeeh ("SubhanAllah" - Glorified is God) Takbeer ("Allahu Akbar" - God is greater) Tamhid ("Alhamdulillah" - Praise be to God) Tahlil ("La ilaha illAllah" - No god except God) Dua (supplication): Al-Nu’man ibn Bashir reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Supplication is worship itself.” Then, the Prophet recited the verse, “Your Lord said: Call upon Me and I will respond to you. Verily, those who disdain My worship will enter Hell in humiliation.” (40:60) (Sunan al-Tirmidhi 3247) >Upholding ties of kinship Respect to parents and family is an obligation for the Muslim. Allah the Almighty says: وَوَصَّيْنَا الْإِنسَانَ بِوَالِدَيْهِ حُسْنًا We have enjoined upon man goodness to his parents. (Surah Al-Ankabut 29:8) Kindness and righteousness to one's parents is the second best deed in Islam after the Salah. (Sahih Bukhari 2630) >Learning Anas ibn Malik reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said: Seeking knowledge is an obligation upon every Muslim. (Sunan Ibn Majah 224) Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said: Whoever travels a path in search of knowledge, Allah will make easy for him a path to Paradise. People do not gather in the houses of Allah, reciting the book of Allah and studying it together, but that tranquility will descend upon them, mercy will cover them, angels will surround them, and Allah will mention them to those near him. (Sahih Muslim 2699) Mu’awiyah reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said: If Allah intends goodness for someone, he gives him understanding of the religion. (Sahih al-Bukhari 71) >Reading Qur'an Abdullah ibn Mas’ud reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Whoever recites a letter from the Book of Allah, he will receive one good deed as ten good deeds like it. I do not say that Alif Lam Mim is one letter, but rather Alif is a letter, Lam is a letter, and Mim is a letter.” (Sunan al-Tirmidhi 2910)

The Mosque

The Mosque - the House of Allah Among the seven which are granted shade under the Throne of Allah on Judgement Day - the day when there is no shade but His - is the one whose heart is attached to the mosques. This is mentioned in Sahih al Bukhari Book 10, Hadith 54. The mosque is the place in which Salah is performed. The Arabic word "Masjid" stems from the root s-j-d and means "place of prostration (to Allah)". Indeed the prayer in congregation is much better and more valued than prayer by oneself. The reward for it is twenty-seven times greater (Bukhari Book 10, Hadith 46) than praying alone. And it's mentioned in Riyad us Saliheen Book 8, Hadith 81 that one who prays Isha' in congregation is like one who prayed for half of the night, and the one who prays Fajr in congregation is like one who prayed the entire night. And in Sunan Abi Dawud Book 2, Hadith 164 we are informed: "A man's prayer said along with another is purer than his prayer said alone, and his prayer with two men is purer than his prayer with one, but if there are more it is more pleasing to Allah, the Almighty, the Majestic." And the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him said: "Convey glad tidings to those who walk to the mosque in the darkness. For they will be given full light on the Day of Resurrection." (Riyad us Saliheen Book 8, Hadith 68). The mosque is the place in which Jumu'ah is held. On Friday the Imam delivers a Khutbah (sermon) to his community, and the Jumuah congregation is obligatory for Muslim men to attend. The Muslims should bathe before coming to the mosque, then they should come early and sit and listen attentively to this Khutbah and avoid playing, talking, eating or any distractions. The reward for attending Jumu'ah in the proper manner is tremendous. On Friday we should bathe ourselves, use perfume, wear the best clothes and clean our teeth. In Jami'at Tirmidhi Book 4, Hadith 9 we are informed: Aws bin Aws narrated: "Allah's Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him) said to me: Whoever performs Ghusl on Friday, and bathes completely, and goes early, arriving early, gets close and listens and is silent, there will be for him in every step he takes the reward of a year of fasting and standing (in prayer)." And in Sahih al Bukhari Book 11, Hadith 34 we are told that Salman Al-Farsi narrated: "Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said, "Anyone who takes a bath on Friday and cleans himself as much as he can and puts oil (on his hair) or scents himself; and then proceeds for the prayer and does not force his way between two persons (assembled in the mosque for the Friday prayer), and prays as much as is written for him and remains quiet when the Imam delivers the Khutba, all his sins in between the present and the last Friday will be forgiven." The mosque is the place in which I'tikaf is practiced. This is what the Messenger of Allah - peace and blessings be upon him - used to do during the last ten tays of the blessed month of Ramadan (Bukhari Book 33). The I'tikaf is the retreat into the mosque, in which one spends his time worshipping Allah and leaving behind all worldly things. This is a Sunnah which is recommended during the last ten days of Ramadan and optional at any other time. The Mu'takif (the one who performs I'tikaf) may only leave his place for a necessary purpose, and return once the need is fulfilled, lest the I'tikaf be nullified. The Prophet of Allah - our teacher and role model, peace and blessings be upon him - used to insist on fulfilling this practice. Sadly today we have in large parts abandoned this great Sunnah.

Pardon me if the question may sound rude to you, but it piqued my interest. What are Islam's views on aliens, other planets and the possibility of life existing outside of Earth? I ask you this because I've heard from a less than credible source that Islam considers other inhabited planets as possessing their own prophets and that all races will converge to the same worship, but I was interested in the topic nonetheless.

Why dont muslims write narratives about great islamic figures?

like epic poems, plays etc.? With an islamic lesson instead of a greek one at the end? And why dont we produce great works of visual art anymore? Especially when there are hadith about portraits being made of the prophet ﷺ during his lifetime? This concept of artistic restriction doesnt even seem to be rightly based in salaf, so I dont understand why these themes have become so common in the muslim world, when they hurt us more than they benefit us, I mean, we have little to no media presence, what does that do for our Ummah? It makes us artistically dependant on the west, and this eventually depleats young muslims of their values; I feel like this whole concept of bidah excludes the fact that muslims live a reality outside of worship and in all honesty, sometimes I feel as if bidah has become a form of bidah on its own right.

Vinegar & Other Considerations In Modern Times

Muhammad was pretty fond of vinegar despite it being the result of the breakdown of alcohol. He even came up with an entire halal vinegar-making distillation process (Takhammur/Takhallul processes) that was meant to prevent the vinegar-makers from having access to the alcoholic juice during the alcohol distillation. Such processes seemed more to be for the benefit and consideration of the workers so that they would not run afoul of the laws of the land during the time period (by producing alcohol) rather than out of religious necessity since vinegar was traditionally produced in what would be considered small/"home brew" batches. In the age of industrial processes that effectively separate the worker from his ability to sin by producing the vinegar products of wines/grains in processes where it would be extremely difficult to produce and the vinegar producers themselves are generally of the company sort that are reputable/not known for imbibing in the alcohols used to produce their vinegars, should such considerations for the halal vinegar-making process still be taken into account to protect the individual from sin outside of homebrew application using halal measures? Are there any other food production or sin-related measures that /islam/ would take into consideration with modern times separating the purely religious reasonings that should be absolutely followed from the practical application reasonings that were implemented for the protection of the individual? Disclaimer: I'm a Christian of the old faith branches so I understand religious significance in modern times and this is all just philosophical.

Ashura, the tenth day of Muharram

Reminder! Only a few days remain until the day of Ashura, brothers. The fasting on this day erases the sins of the previous year. Ibn Abbas, may Allah be pleased with him, was asked about observing of fast on the day of Ashura, whereupon he said: "I do not know Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) singling out any day's fast and considering it more excellent than another, except this day (the day of Ashura) and this month, meaning the month of Ramadan." Source: Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 1132a Abu Qatadah reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, was asked about fasting the day of Arafat and he said, "It will expiate the sins of the previous and upcoming years." Then, the Prophet was asked about fasting the day of Ashura and he said, "It will expiate the sins of the past year." Source: Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 1162

Salam Aleykum! Happy Ramadan! May Allah accept your blessings! Today in the morning I got up not because of my alarm to take a brake. The Djin woke me up and this scares me too much. Thanks Allah, I don't see nightmares, but this night was an exception. I saw the dream where I heard my father's voice who was telling me to not being naive and to not trust everybody. But in the end of the speech he began teaching me that cannibalism is good and sth like that. But it wasn't the end. He showed me old pictures which I haven't seen before, and there were just unfamiliar families. But one thing was similar at each photo: a yellow [burned] cross (but it seemed like a sign) (like on the image) I got up because of Djin's arm on my hip. I have prayed to the God. I have read blessings against shaytans. But I still feel myself uncomfortable and uneasy. Today whole day was too lucky for myself which is unusual to me. And it scares me more. Does someone know what does that mean?

Salam, hermanos.

I am a Mexican who have a direct Muslim ancestry and I want some advice. For you see, my parents emigrated here from Iraq and settled in the south. My whole life was very traditional but there is a predicament. For some odd reasons, my parents choce to raise me and my sister as local Roman Catholics. This was unbeknownst to me for my whole life up until my adulthood. They said they wanted us to have a normal life, yet I always felt like I didn't belong. Truth is, my faith is with God but I want to know more about Allah. I've been studying Iraqui Arabic but I'm not sure if I should. My parents, specially my father, says he won't stop me yet he says he expects me to "do the right thing". What can I do? Please, I need some help from native brothers.

Qur’an and Context

I’m not a Muslim, but I have been exploring Islam over the last few months with another non-Muslim friend of mine, and on the topic of the Qur’an, my friend has said that he finds it hard to believe that something like the Qur’an was intended to be a scripture of universal application given the fact that what happens is so contextually linked and that you basically need to read tafsir half the time to understand what a certain verse is actually in reference too (for example with “kill them where you find them...”). Basically his criticism is that you’d expect it to have more clarity and not so tightly tied into context to such an extent that you can’t even tell half the time they’re talking about something that happened after Mecca was retaken, or whether this happened after the battle of Badr, etc. I find this very strange about the Qur’an as well, and am curious why it is like this, and how it can be properly understood by many Muslims who have no access to the tafsir. I’m not here to really argue against the Qur’an, I’m mainly curious to here an explanation for this
