‘Gi (for Allahs skyld)’…men HVA skal jeg gi?

Asalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu kjære lesere!

Vi leste følgende ayaah av Surah Baqarah i klassen:

254. Dere som tror, gi av det som Vi har gitt dere før den dag kommer, da det er slutt med kjøp og salg, med vennskap, med at noen kan utøve innflytelse til andres fordel. De vantro, de er urettferdige. *

Jeg hadde alltid tenkt at det er bare penger man kan gi bort for Allahs skyld men Allah sier i denne ayaah at ‘ gi av DET som Vi har tildelt dere’. Allah har ikke velsignet oss med bare penger, vi har alt fra god helse, utdanning, tid, energi, talent, ferdigheter og mye mer. Har vi noen gang tenkt over å bruke dem for Allahs skyld eller for å spre Allahs religion? Hvis vi bruker alle disse velsignelser for duniya idag, da kan vi ikke forvente noe forhandling i akhirah.

Allah trenger ikke våre penger eller tid men Han ser på våres hjerter om hvor mye vi elsker Allah og hvor sterk vår imaan er. Jeg ber til Allah at han gjør oss sterkere i vår imaan og gir oss styrke for å gjøre noe for Islam. Ameen!

We can give our wealth, education, time and skills for Allah's cause.

Surah Al Anaam Ayaah 95

Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

Bismillah!

Allhamdulillah aaj hum ne surah Al-Anaam ki  ayaat 95 ki tafseer parhi, jiska tarjuma yeh hai:

بیشک الله تعالیٰ پھاڑنے والا ہے دانہ کو اور گٹھلیوں کو۔وہ جاندار (چیز) کو بےجان (چیز) سے نکال لاتا ہے (جیسے نطفہ سے آدمی پیدا ہوتا ہے)اور وہ بیجان (چیز) کو جاندار (چیز) سے نکالنے والا ہے (جیسے آدمی کے بدن سے نطفہ ظاہر ہوتا ہے) یہ الله ہی ہے (جس کی ایسی قدرت ہے)سو تم کہاں اُلٹے چلے جارہے ہو۔

Inn ayaat ka unwan hai TAUHEED or SHIRK ka farq or ALLAH ki qadar. In ayaat main ALLAH ki sifaat ka zikar he jo ke yeh hain:

1. DANE SE DARAKHT BANANE WALA.

2. ZINDA MAIN SE MURDA OR MURDA SE ZINDA PEDA KARNE WALA (yahan zinda ko momin or murda ko kafir se tashbeh di gai he).

3. RAAT OR DIN KO PHAIRNE WALA.

4. CHAND OR SURAJ KO BANANE WALA.

5. SITAARON KA BANANE WALA.

6. AIK JAAN SE SAB INSANON KO PEDA KARNE WALA.

 7. AASMAN SE PANI BARSANE WALA.

 ALLAH ki sifaat be hisaab hein agar hum bass inhi sifaat par ghor karen or janen to kese kissi or ki taraf ja sakte hein,jab kainat ki sare aham chezen us ne banai hein tau hum apne chote chote masail ke lie gheir allah ki taraf kia karne jaen.

JazakAllah Khair.

Do i Guard my Prayers(Namaz)? Surah Baqarah V.238

Asalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

Bismillah!

We read the tafseer of Ayaah 238 of Surah Baqarah where Allah subhanahu wa taala says:

238. Guard strictly (five obligatory) As-Salawat (the prayers) especially the middle salat ( i.e. the best prayer- Asr). And stand before Allah with obedience ( and do not speak to others during the prayers).

Allah subhanahu wa taala commands us to be mindful about our prayers especially the Asr prayer.

Al-Bukhaari narrated that the Prophet ( Sallellahu Allayhi Wassalam) said: “Whoever forsakes ‘Asr prayer, his deeds are in vain.” (al-Bukhaari, 553).

We should guard our prayers just like we guard our children, wealth and assets.

Prophet Muhammad (Sallellahu Alleyhi Wassalam) said “Whoever misses the ‘Asr prayer, it is as if he had lost his family and his wealth” (Bukhari, Muslim).

This left me thinking… do i guard my prayers like i guard my children and wealth? Do i care about my prayers when i am out shopping, at a wedding or at work???

The most difficult part is to guard your prayers outside your house and that is when shaitaan attacks us with his insinuating whispers and we fall a prey to them. I always believe that when there is will, there is a way. Whenever i need to pray outdoors, i stay determined that i have to find a place to pray and then Allah makes a way for me. Allhamdulillah.  I always carry a pocket-size prayer mat and a compass in my bag, which makes it convenient to pray. But if you are in a public building or an office, it is best to seek permission first.

There are many people who feel shy about praying in public but they should ask themselves, ‘ Allah first or people?’ This is a great test from Allah to see what our priority is, but once you become determined and take the right decision, Allah makes it unimaginably easy.

May Allah Subhanahu Wa Taala make it easy for us to guard our prayers at all times. Ameen!

If he can, why can’t we?

Asal Baat Qabliyat Nahi, Qabooliyat Hai

Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi  wa barakatuhu!

Bismillah!

Hum nay Surah Baqarah ki ayaat 122-129 ki tafseer mein parha kay ‘ Asal baat qabliyat nahi, qabooliyat hai’. Hum aj deen kay muamlaat mein qabliyat mein uljhay huay hain kay jitni ziada dafa parhengay utni jaldi qabool hoga, chahay woh qabool ho ya na ho. Isliye quantity kee bajae quality pe focus karna chahye.

Allah subhanahu wa taala say dua hai kay Woh hum subko quality-ibadat karnay kee taufeeq ata farmain. Ameen!
