These will be questioned and they will reply without knowledge. They are themselves misguided and misguide others.” (Hadith of the Prophet  in Sahih al-Bukhari)   “It can be ascertained that the troublemakers (al-mushaghibun) in our time, who claim that they belong to the school of the Salaf, outwardly making a show of such affiliation, do not in any way whatsoever belong to it: neither in knowledge nor in practice. They are propagators of falsehood, deception, and misguidance devoid of all guidance.” (Munir 'Abduh Agha) To proceed a demonstration of the reality of the esoteric science of Sufism: “Some formalists recognise only the science of the external religious law comprised in the Quran and the Sunna, and declare that the esoteric science, i. e. Tasawwuf or Sufism, is without meaning. In fact, however, the science of the religious law (Sharia) has an internal as well as an external aspect and inculcates inward as well as outward actions. The outward actions are bodily, such as hunger, fasting, almsgiving and the like, while the inward actions, or the actions of the heart, are faith, sincerity, knowledge of God, etc. The esoteric science signifies the science of the actions of the interior which depend on the interior organ, namely, the heart (al-qalb) and is identical with Sufism. The inward aspect of religion is the necessary complement of the outward aspect, and vice versa. Both aspects are inherent in the Quran, in the Traditions of the Prophet , and in Islam itself.”Abu Nasr `Abdallah b. `Ali al-Sarrâj al-Tusi (Kitab al-luma fi l-Tasawwuf) A Survey Of Decisive Arguments And Proof For Tasawwuf - Sufism in Islam* Edited by Omar K Neusser — This is the main page of our Tasawwuf section. 1. The Basics of Tasawwuf (This chapter is by Shaykh Muhammad Al-Yaqoubi) 1- Definition: Purification of the heart.True devotion to Allah in the ways He likes by the means He likes.... Acting upon knowledge;Acquiring the good characters and getting rid of the bad. 2- Subject: Allah, as how He can be known; or hearts & souls, as how to purify them. 3- Fruit: The purification of the heart and knowing the Master of the worlds and attaining the Station of ihsân. 4- Merit: Tasawwuf is of high merit. Its nobility stems from its subject. Ihsân is one of the three levels of this deen and the highest. 5- Relation to other disciplines: It is the base of the Sharia; without it acts of worship become imperfect. It is the core of Quran and Sunnah and the tissue of Muslims spiritual life. 6- Name: The word "tasawwuf" is derrived from souf (wool). Tasawwuf has been known by this name since the second century of hijra, i.e. the time of the salaf. It has been frequently called `ilm as-Sulûk (initiatic traveling & spiritual behaviour), `ilm al-Ihsân, `ilm at-Tarbiyah (cultivation) or `ilm at-Tazkiyah (purification). 7- The pioneer: The pioneer of this branch of knowledge is of course the Prophet  . Many hadiths highlight the spiritual dimension of a Muslim's life.[2.2]The earliest scholar who elaborated on it is al-Hasan al-Basriy. 8- Sources: Tasawwuf is derived from Quran and Sunnah[2.1].The sayings of the great scholars represent a rich treasure for the seekers and the masters.[07] 9- Ruling: Acquiring tasawwuf is fard i.e. obligatory; since all human beings are susceptable to sins save for Prophets. Imam Abul Hasan ash-Shadiliy said:“He who does not truly acquire this discipline will die persisting on major sins without being aware of it.” 10- What it tackles: Tasawwuf tackles some of the cardinal elements of the deen such as sincerity; truthfulness; religious cautioness (wara'); conscious awareness (khushû') reliance; asceticism; love; and similarly their opposites, which are the diseases of the hearts such as insincerity; hypocrisy; arrogance; greed etc.It also tackles subtle subjects such as the passing of thoughts; the states of the heart; inspirations. One of its most important subjects is dhikr, the remembrance (i.e. in the evocation & recitation of the name) of Allah and its virtues; another is the shaykh and his qualifications, the disciple, murid, and his adab. 11- Basic works in tasawwuf:- The Beauty of the Righteous by al-Hafiz Abu Nuaym al-Asfahani- The Revival of the Sciences of the Deen- (Ihya) al-Imam al- Ghazali- Al-Risalah of Imam Abul Qasim al-Qushayriy- The Aphorisms, al-Hikam, of Imam Ibn Atta'illah- Revelation of the Unseen by Imam Abdul Qadir al-Jaylaniy- Awarif Al-Ma'arif, by al-Suhrawardi- Qawa'id Al-Tasawwuf, by Imam Ahmad Zarooq Al-Ghafûr:the All-forgiving i.e. the One who forgives every thing, all thingsAl-Ghaffâr:the Forgiving all the time of the sins, i.e. the Often-Forgiving. 2. Proof from Quran & Sunna As a matter of fact the amount of proof is too numerous to list here, and this is so, because Tasawwuf - Sufism is nothing less than the heart of the religion (dîn): “Being the heart of the Islamic message it is, like the physical heart, hidden from external view, although again like the heart it is the inner source of life and the centre which coordinates inwardly the whole religious organism of Islam. The Tarîqah is the most subtle and difficult aspect of Islam to understand at the same time that its external effect is to be seen in many manifestations of Islamic society and civilisation.” [k/trq_e] 2.1 Tasawwuf in Traditional Islam There are the evident corrupt acts, to be seen by everyone and the concealed corrupt acts:{Say: My Lord has only prohibited indecencies, those of them that are apparent as well as those that are concealed,-} (7-33)It is the function of the science of Tasawwuf to heal (the heart of) the believer even from the concealed corrupt acts, such as blind hatred, ostentation, envy, hypocrisy. For this there are methods, disciplines[033]and doctors of hearts[3.4].  2.2 The ihsân-hadith expressed by the Angel Gabriel: The Messenger of Allah  replied to angel Gabriel's (pbuh) question on Ihsan (perfection), that it is "to worship Allah as if you see Him, and if you cannot (yet) see Him, then be sure that He is seeing you."A sound and famous hadith in Al-Bukhari, vol. 1, no. 47; narrated by Abu Huraira.[o/gh_e] Prophet Muhammad  also used to say:"Truly, Allah does not look at your outward forms and wealth, but rather at your hearts and your works."Allah  does not need our outward accomplishments, building records, material goods etc. when everything we have is only from HIM! But He said (in the Quran) that HE will scrutinize our inner being, our heart or soul:{ The day on which property will not avail, nor sons; except him who comes to Allah with a (sound) heart* free (from evil).} (26-88/9) *sound heart: [2.3] 2.3 Heart, Soul, Inner Aspect *sound heart (~ the organ of knowledge):“A heart in which the affectations of the mind do not arise, and which is safe from the distractions of all that is not God.” [CDS] *diseased heart:Shibli said: “A heart ruled by the present world (dunyâ)is debarred from feeling the sweetness of the world to come.”Allah  warns us from the disease of the heart, which results in eternal damnation:{ In their hearts is a disease, and Allah has caused their sickness to intensify.} (2-10) The illness of the heart is of two types:- suspicion and doubt, and - desire, allurement and wantonness*.Ibn Qayyim[MP3]*(i.e. cruel, violent, sexually immodesty) One's inward diseases are enough to cancel out one's good deeds - even if they are numerous.[PTP34] *hadith:“For every object there is a thing which polishes it and that which polishes the heart is remembrance (dhikr) of God.” *Quran:{ For without doubt in the remembrance (i.e. in the evocation & recitation of the name) of Allah do hearts find comfort.} (13-28){ Those who believe, and whose hearts find comfort in the remembrance of Allah. For without doubt in the remembrance (i.e. in the evocation & recitation of the name) of Allah do hearts find comfort.} (13-28) 3. The Science Of Tasawwuf There are several aspects to it, and all have to be taken account of. The beginning of it is when the servant accuses his own soul[m/pse_e], the continuation of it when he takes account of himself in all states, and strives against his ego, seeking recourse in Allah  . Then there will be blessings (barakah) and ease:{ With hardship comes ease.} (94-5) 3.1 A Difficult Science, With Great BenefitIt is a science which is easy to hold speaches about, but difficult to implement and practice! Nevertheless one must not avoid the effort, but start the journey at once, before it is too late.{ Ah, what will convey unto you what the Ascent is!}(90-12) This science is “mixed with what is bitter and distressful. It saddens the heart and brings tears to the eyes...The ego has no portion in its journey ... because its pre-condition is the killing of the ego and abstinence from one's wants. This is why scholars have deserted this science and occupied themselves with the sciences of juridical rulings and differences of opions ... they are lighter upon the souls that are disposed to following their caprice and averse to rights. Allah  knows best.”[SSK43]3.2 An Individually Obligatory Science For EveryoneThe Prophets - peace be upon them all - are singled out from the generality of believers due to their extra certainty (yaqîn), faith and Prophetic proofs. For the believing Muslim - nay for every Muslim - it is very important to gain deep understanding,* according to the word of the Prophet  :“Whoever Allah wishes good for, he grants him deep understanding of religion.”Al-Bukhari, vol. 1, no.71*“Deep understanding (fqh) is to know one's self: what is for it and against it.” Imam Abu Hanifa *For or against:The Muslims who implement tasawwuf don't engage in disputation and quarrelling about religion, and certainly not in showing off, but they hold that it is better “for one to occupy himself with what is for and against him,” and they focus on seeking Sacred Knowledge.[SSK67]“The states, stations, and spiritual struggles (which the Muslims who implement tasawwuf) seek to understand and speak of are needed by all the believers. Knowing their rulings is obligatory upon all and universally relevant. These include qualities such as: truthfulness, sincerity, remembrance, and the avoidance of heedlessness. Nay, the servant must know his intentions, aims, and inner thoughts at every passing moment. If it is a right among the various rights, he must stick to it and if it is his own portion*, he must abstain from it.”[fnSSK46] Allah  says:{ And do not obey him whose heart We have made heedless of Our remembrance, who follows his desires, and whose affair is in neglect.} (18-28) *That means the servant has to scrutinize his ownniyyât and goals at all times in order to discover if they are according with God's satisfaction and stick to them and if they are only for ego's or nafs's portion, he should abstain from it. 3.3 A Warning Of False Claimants”Among the latter day adherents of Sufism there are claimants who, despite their meagre portion of knowledge and intelligence, claim Divine gnosis and enlightened spiritual unveilings for themselves.”[SSK30]This is wrong and deviancy.May Allah bring them back to the Straight Path!3.4 Looking For A Spiritual Guide“The benefit of the Shaykh is that he condenses and shortens the path for the spiritual aspirant. Whoever travels the path without a Shaykh is foolish, and he will spend his whole life having not reached his goal because the Shaykh is like the guide who leads the pilgrims to Mecca on a dark night.”[RES57]Shaykh `Abd Al-Wahhâb Al-Sha`râni If someone is confused about a particular aspect of this science, he should only defer to the view of  “a scholar who has experienced these states and settled in them and who has researched their sciences and intricacies. Whosoever does otherwise is mistaken.” [SSK49]Shaykh `Abd al-Hadi Kharsa3.5 A Measure For The Strength Of One's Struggle(jihâd)Now if we remind ourselves of the strong love or desire for wordly goods (and grown-ups have this passion, not children) as mentioned in this verse:{ And lo! In the love of wealth he is violent.} (100-8)then - for reaching the balance - → this can be a measure of the strength of our struggle(jihâd) or the force we apply against our nafs for the commands of the LAW and the good pleasure (ridwân)of Allah. continue reading 01 - tasawwuf – an explanation 011→ Sufism ( tasawwuf ) is a knowledge through which one knows the states of the human soul, praiseworthy or blameworthy, how to purify it from the blameworthy and ennoble it by acquiring the praiseworthy [qualities], and to journey and proceed to Allah  Most High, fleeing unto Him [by taking a spiritual path - tarîq ].012→ Its fruits are the heart's development, knowledge of God - Allah  - through direct experience and ecstasy [ie. true experience of the Divine], salvation in the next world, triumph through gaining Allah's pleasure, the attainment of eternal happiness, and illuminating and purifying the heart so that noble matters disclose themselves, extraordinary states are revealed, and one perceives what the insight of others is blind to. Muhammad Amin Kurdi [ icd_e ]013→ The real meaning of the word "Sufi" means actually the one who is liberated [from the shackles of the dunyâ & nafs] or has completed his spiritual realisation. Otherwise the beginner [of the path] should be called "Mutaçawwif" and never "Sufi" as long as he has not arrived at the final goal. AV014→ It should be pointed out that Sufism has existed before its name since the very time of the Profet  and according to Shaykh Abd Al Wahid Yahya the name actually means al-hikmah al-ilâhiyyah(knowledge of God). AV   The wheel, it doesn't have to be reinvented, only re-adapted.02 - principles of tasawwuf 021→ All the authentic principles of tasawwuf are to be found in the Qur'an and hadiths, so they are in the Sunnah.022→ He who dies without having entered into this knowledge of ours dies insisting upon his grave sins (kabâ'ir) without realizing it. [ Al-Shadhili ]023→ Reaching substantial, true belief in Divine Oneness and living in accordance with its demands. [ 10 principles of Tasawwuf ] 03 - tasawwuf - the way of the Sufis 031→ The reality of tasawwuf is defined by truthful self-orientation (sidq al-tawajjuh) to Allah  Most High.(10 items:) [ What is Sufism? ]032→ Know that tasawwuf is two things: Truthfulness with Allah Almighty and good conduct with people. Anyone who practices these two things is a Sufi ... [ Imam Al-Ghazali ]033→ Sufism is not as some people think; merely gathering together to engage in remembrance and recite litanies. What many are unaware of is that Sufism is a complete and practical method for transforming people from loathsome (i.e. causing hatred or disgust; repulsive) individuals to complete and model human beings. This is all done through having sound faith, sincere worship, good and correct actions, and virtuous character. [RES37]   04 - The foundations of our path 041→ These foundations of the path are 5:* taqwâ (godfearingness, mindfulness of Allah), privately and publicly,* Adherence to the Sunna in word and deed,* Indifference to whether others accept or reject one,* Contentment with Allah  in times of hardship & ease,* Turning to Allah in prosperity & adversity. 042→ 5 principles for treating the soul's illnesses:* lightening the stomach by diminishing one's food and drink,* taking refuge in Allah  Most High from the unforeseen when it befalls,* shunning situations involving what one fears to fall victim to,* continually asking for Allah's forgiveness and His blessings upon the Prophet  night and day with full presence of mind,* and keeping the company of him who guides one to Allah  . [Sheikh Yusuf al-Sayyid Hashim al-Rafa`i]   05 - Concerning The Opponents of Tasawwuf 051→ The detractors of tasawwuf often invent odd things about Sufism, either totally misunderstood or without any basis in tasawwuf, in order to be able to attack it, while presenting themselves as "the true followers of the religion" of Islam.052→ Nevertheless there those who go to extremes and there are deviatiant groups - parading as followers of Sufism, while being lax on the law(Sharia), culturally inherited customs, inventing new matters. These things have nothing to do with the religion whatsoever.053→ Certain opponents of tasawwuf adduce two reports, one chainless and one weak-chained, originating in a man from the city of Naseebeen (Iraq) who has been critiqued as munkar al-hadith or 'disclaimed in his narrations' to claim that Imam Malik derided group dhikr. [ Imam Malik and the Sufis ]054→ “No one is allowed to wag his tongue to malign a folk whose knowledge and state he doesn’t know, whose stations and intentions he has not discovered. Whoever does that will fall into destruction, even though he thinks he is from the sincere advisers. May Allah protect us!” [SSK49]055→ When you detect the slightest whiff of disrespect for (the schools of tasawwuf), you have been given the first sign that you are in the presence of a disconnected, unbeneficial person. [ Sunnism is respect ]056→ As for the statement "being a sufi, he is from among those who have gone astray in the history of Islam" it would be fair to say that this statement constitutes kufr because it attributes misguidance to the massive majority of the elite of this Umma ... GFH [ Mawlana Jalal al-Din ar-Rumi 'misguided'? ]057→ Remember Imam Ghazali's advice in al-Munqidh min al-Dalal: "Think good thoughts (about Sufis) and do not harbor doubts in your heart"; and of Ibn Hajar al-Haytami's fatwa concerning critics of those who respect tasawwuf and believe in awliya': "Bad thoughts about them (Sufis) is the death of the heart." [Those Who Attack Al-Ghazali] 058→ Although there is no evidence that the word “Tasawwuf” (the Arabic word for “Sufism”) was used by the Prophet  (peace be upon him), he certainly used the word ‘Ihsan’ or spiritual sincerity. Sufi Shaykhs have said that Sufism itself is nothing other than this sincerity, or the perfect following of the way of Muhammad, both inner and outer.[]   06 - Sufism Is Self-Purification 061→ Hadith of the Prophet  on the heart:  “... truly in the body there is a morsel of flesh which, if it be whole, all the body is whole and which, if it be diseased, all of it is diseased. Truly it is the heart.” (narrated by Bukhari and Muslim) [hadith 40 Nawawi] 062→ The process of self-purification means that a Muslim undertakes to rid himself of repellant characteristics and acquire praiseworthy ones, so that he perfects his worship of his Lord and attains His nearness.063→ The Sufi is that Muslim whose inner and outer behaviour are in harmony with the Shari`ah (Divine Law), so that he realizes (thqq*; tahqîq) his iman,islam and ihsan. 07 - Famous Quotes On Sufism 071→ Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal said about the Sufis: “I don't know people better than them.” Someone said to him: "They listen to music and they reach states of ecstasy." He said: “Do you prevent them from enjoying an hour with Allah?” [Ahmad ibn Hanbal]072→ Imam al- Shafi`i said: “Be both a faqih and asufi: do not be only one of them! Verily, by Allah's truth, I am advising you sincerely. [Imam al- Shafi`i]073→ Imam Malik  said: “He who practicestasawwuf without learning Sacred Law corrupts his faith, while he who learns Sacred Law without practicing tasawwuf corrupts himself. Only he who combines the two proves true.” [Sufism in Islam]074→ For Abu Madyan, an aspirant's spiritual progress could never be separated from his social responsibility:"Sufism is not the (mere) observance of rules, nor does it consist of degrees or stages. Instead, Sufism consists of personal integrity, generosity of spirit, the emulation of what has been revealed, knowledge of the (divine) Message, and adhering to the way of the prophets. He who deviates from these sources finds himself grazing in the gardens of Satan, submerged in the ocean of lusts, and wandering in the darkness of ignorance." [Bidayat al-murid (Basic principles of the Sufi path); Abu Madyan] 08 - Tasawwuf Shuyukh081→ The scholars of the Sufis are the genuine followers of the salaf due to their fully connected chains leading back to them. This is the fact of the matter and is not a mere claim. They are the Muhammadan inheritors; those in whom Allah has gathered the inheritance of Sacred Knowledge and the inheritance of spiritual states.[SSK] Some of the following are: Ibn `Arabi Hasan al-Basri Abu Hanifa Sufyan al-Thawri Imam Malik Imam Shafi`i Ahmad bin Hanbal Imam Ahmad al-Muhasibi al-Ju`i al-Junayd al-Tirmidhi al-Baghdadi al-Qushayri al-Ansari al-Ghazali Ibn `Aqil al-Hanbali al-Gilani Ibn al-Jawzi al-Shadhili Ibn `Abd al-Salam al-Nawawi al-Maqdisi Ibn Taymiyya Ibn Taymiyya II Ibn `Ata Allah I Ibn `Ata Allah II al-Subki al-Shatibi Ibn Khaldun Al-Bistami al-Sakhawi al-Suyuti al-Ansari al-Haytami al-Sha`rani al-Qari Ibn `Abidin al-Mawdudi 082→ Other Shuyukh who wrote on tasawwuf:Far from being opponents of tasawwuf, there are those who accepted its reality, but this has not pleased some of the narrowminded who have tampered with the original writings(!), which is our Islamic heritage, to fit into their innovated ideology. Examples are here [trs_e] and here [strm_e]. Among the Shuyukh which they like to count as their's are the following who accepted tasawwuf and praised it: Ibn al-Qayyim Ibn Taymiyya (1) Ibn Taymiyya (2) Ibn Taymiyya (3)   09 - Texts On Tasawwuf (at 091→ Briefly put, 'sufi' is a second-century name applied to a type of Muslim earlier known as 'zahid.' [ Sufism in Islam ]092→ The Tarîqah or Spiritual Path which is usually known as Tasawwuf or Sufism is the inner and esoteric dimension of Islam and like the Sharî`ah has its roots in the Quran and prophetic practice. S H Nasr [ Sharî`ah, Tarîqah And Haqîqah ]093→ We seek the Sufism that addresses the ailments of the heart, plugs the holes through which Satan can steal into hearts, and resists the desires of the human soul ...Shaykh Yusuf al-Qaradawi [ On Tasawwuf ]094→ Apart from this main page, here a list of other texts: - 10 Principles Of Tasawwuf- Sufism In Islam, Gibril F Haddad- Sharî`ah, Tarîqah And Haqîqah, S H Nasr- Tasawwuf - Sufism in Islam, Hamza Yusuf- Purifying & Striving Against The Ego, al-Qadir `Isa- Role Of Sufism in Building Good Character Today- What is Sufism?

Allah's protection we seek against Satan, the accursed. In the name of Allah, Most gracious, Most Merciful. Praise be to Allah, the Cherisher and the Sustainer of the world. Blessings and Peace be upon the worthiest of all the Prophets and Messengers, who was sent to humankind out of mercy, our liege-lord Muhammad, upon his family, his Companions, and all those who have been guided by him and now hold fast to his Sunnah (tradition) up until the Day of Judgment. O Allah, Glory be to You. We know nothing but what You have taught us, for You are the All-Knowing, the All-Wise. Bestow on us, O Guardian-lord, mercy from Yourself and dispose of our affairs for us in the right way. Sire, May Allah guard your August Majesty. May He protect you and make you ever exalted. May Allah lead Your steps aright in the path of goodness, confer honor and munificience on your Majesty's life, and grant you lasting healthfulness and well-being. May Allah preserve you that you may graciously continue your noble deeds and pursue your praiseworthy endeavors of elevating your faithful people and of serving the cause of Arabs and Muslims the world over. May Allah preserve you in His guardianship, uphold you, grant you assistance, and make you successful in all of your undertakings. On the Provision of the Shar` ( Islamic Law) Regarding Devotion to the Messenger of Allah Majesty, Devotion to the Apostle of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) is one of the primary and essential duties of a genuine believer. Without it, faith remains seriously wanting. The Holy Book, the Sunnah (or the Tradition of the Prophet), along with the prevailing opinion in the entire Islamic Ummah, stress the fact that loving-kindness and respect are due to the Prophet who has been enormously beneficent to us all. He has (by Allah's leave) guided us towards the right faith and the straight path and led us out of the darkness of error into the light of knowledge. He has been instrumental in all the good we have known, and in the pious deeds we have performed. Through these deeds we pray for Allah's forgiveness and favor that we may be admitted to His Heaven and be averted from (hell) fire. Thanks to our adherence to his faith and our observance of His Shari'a, we have become the best of people ever evolved for mankind - an Ummah whose belief in and profession of the pure Gospel of Unity has made of it the blessed upholder of the true faith, a faith chosen for us by Allah. Thanks to our Prophet we have not only been guided to the right faith (none other than which will be accepted to Allah) but also made witnesses bearing testimony over nations. We Muslims are also indebted to the Prophet (peace and blessings be on him) for his intercession on our behalf on the Day of Judgment. On that day not a (believing) soul - not even one possessing a mustard grain's worth of faith - shall remain eternally in hell. In short, were it not for Allah's Favor in sending His Messenger to guide us, we would be real losers in a state of utter ignorance and error. In return for all the favors and the services rendered to us, it behooves us to show devotion and respect to him. As one wit aptly expresses it: Do good unto people and you shall capture their hearts Many hearts have, through good deeds, been won. Goodness to others, even when it is partial and limited, warrants gratitude and recognition. And gratitude ought to be all the more important and deep to someone whose kindness has been far-reaching, all-embracing and everlasting. The Prophet's kind solicitude has affected the lives of Muslims not solely in matters pertaining to the here but also extended it to our existence in the hereafter - and verily the hereafter shall be better than the here. Besides Allah's favors, the Prophet's goodness stands peerless. For this reason, our devotion to him should never fall short of his unique kindness to us. Our devotion to him should indeed exceed our love for our own children, our parents, and our kin and kith. There is evidence to suggest that the magnanimous Companions of the Prophet had shown unparalleled devotion and faithfulness. Imam Al-Bukhari and Imam Muslim report in their respective Sahihs that the Apostle of Allah once said: "not until he has shown me devotion greater than that manifested towards his closeset kin will a man become a true believer". A case in point: when Ali (may Allah honor him) was asked how strong his devotion to the Apostle of Allah was he replied: "By Allah, we cherished him more than we did our children, our parents, and all of our possessions. He was much dearer to us than fresh water is for a thirsty soul". Such was the esteem and the honor the Prophet was held in by his Companions. By the same token, the hearts of true believers ought to be filled with similar devotion to the Apostle. Habit has it that when a person loves something he shows it by caring for it, speaking in glowing terms of it, and being faithful to it. Sending blessings on the Apostle of Allah is certainly the best way of invoking him, in compliance with the command of the Almighty. In thus blessing him we show him gratitude and acknowledge his many favors to us. To send blessings on the Prophet is but a small payment for the many benefits and good we have seen through him. In truth, to thank the Prophet is to thank Allah, and Allah is all-approving of those who honor His Messenger. Blessing the Prophet in token of devotion, obedience and worship gets the believer closer to Allah. The Almighty reserves the best of rewards and the most complete forgiveness for those who continually bless His Apostle. Suffice it to point out in this respect that it is out of honor and commendation of His Apostle that Allah, in a Quranic verse starting with His Divine Self and followed by His Angels, orders His servants thus: An Exegesis of the Verse under Consideration and Explanation of its Contents Allah and His AngelsSend blessings on the Prophet;O ye that believe!Send your blessings on himAnd salute himWith all respect. To provide a brief context for the above, and according to Al-Hafid bin Hijr, who has it from Aby Dharr Al-Harawy, the verse is the fiftieth of Sura Al-Ahzab (or The Confederates) which was revealed in the second year of the Hegira. Al-Hajid Asskhawy also reports on Ibn Aby-Sath Al-Yamany that Sura Al-Ahzab was sent down during the month of Sha'aban. Further commenting on the same issue, the same scholar says that Sha'aban is a month during which blessings are sent on the Apostle of Allah (peace and blessings be on him). It is worth pointing that the same Sura also includes a verse in which Allah commands His servants to glorify the Prophet, to show due respect to his family, and to avoid any form of unseemly or hurtful behavior towards him and his wives, the mothers of the believers (may Allah be pleased with all of them). The most High thus states: O ye who believe!Enter not the Prophet's houses, -Until leave is given you,-For a meal, (and then)Not (so early as) to waitFor its preparation: but whenYe are invited, enter;And when ye have takenYour meal, disperse,without seeking familiar talk.Such (behavior) annoysThe Prophet; he is shyTo dismiss you, butAllah is not shy(To tell you) the truth. Allah, to whom might and majesty belong, then commands people to honor the Prophet: Allah and His angelsSend blessings on the ProphetO ye that believe!Send your blessings on him,And salute himWith all respect. Those who vex or try to cause hurt or injury to the Apostle of Allah (peace and blessings be on him) receive a strong warning which reads: Those who annoyAllah and His messengerAllah has cursed themIn this world andIn the Hereafter,And has prepared for themA humiliating punishment. The above verses serve to corroborate the idea mentioned in the preceding one, namely, the necessity to honor the Prophet and his consorts who are held in high esteem both by the Beneficient Creator and by His exalted and venerable angels. It is important to stress the fact that Almighty Allah who is free of all needs and worthy of all praise, does send His blessings on His Messenger, as do His honorable angels who obey all of Allah's commands and glorify their Lord continuously and tirelessly. Evidence of the wonderful workings of the angels is evoked when the Most High says:"They arrange to do (the commands of their Lord)". Despite the numerous and demanding divine missions and errands they are entrusted with, the angels are prompt to give the glory to the Prophet (peace and blessings be on him). Should we not, after their fashion, be the first ones to bless the Prophet, we, believers, who have been commanded to follow his right path and to benefit therefrom? Should we not be the first ones to honor him, we, believers, who still hope for his intercession on our behalf and aspire for his companionship in Heaven? To resume commentary on the afore-mentioned verses, we should point out that they begin by informing the servants of Allah that the Most High, along with His angels, send their blessings on the Prophet, then moves on to urge the believers to follow suit and honor him in requital for his many favors, which the Guardian-Lord beautifully describes when He says: Allah did conferA great favorOn the believersWhen He sent among themA messenger from amongThemselves, rehearsingUnto them the signsOf Allah, purifying them and instructing themIn scripture and wisdom,While, before that,They had beenIn manifest error. To emphasize the necessity of blessing the Prophet, the verses include a nominal clause suggesting the continuity and permanence of glorification. The nominal clause is introduced by inna, an intensifying particle, having the force of truly or verily. The particle, in other words, serves to reinforce the special honor in which the Prophet is held and the eminence and distinction conferred on him by His Lord. This exalted and noble position, one of Allah's blessings, makes the Prophet all the more worthy of our respect, honor, and glorification.

1388 days ago 1 comments From: QuranEdu Categories:  SUNNAH   Tags: end of time — Discovering Islam The End Times: Based on Numerical Analysis of the Quran, Hadith, Arabic Words, and Historical Events. Imam Mahdi in 2014 Jesus Christ (p) in 2022 Currently, the book is 100 % FREE End of Time Prophecies, Apocalypse & Eschatology   In this section of our site, we discuss the End of Time (End Times or End of Days) , leading to End of the World (Doomsday, Last Day), followed by the Day of Resurrection (Day of Judgement).  The End of Time is presented primarily from an Islamic perspective, but we also present some of the beliefs and Biblical prophecies of the Jews and the Christians regarding the End of Time, for the sake of comparison and to broaden the horizons of Muslims and our readers in general.   1.  When will the End of Time start ? Based on our numerical analysis of the Quran and Hadith, the official beginning of the End of Time and the coming of the Imam Mahdi will most likely be in 2014 and Jesus Christ (p) will come down from Heaven to Earth in 2022, in-sha Allah (if Allah is willing). All events we may witness before the official beginning of the End of Time  are NOT  part of the official End Times events.   2. Three Important Individuals In Islam, Muslims expect at least 3 important individuals to appear, before the Day of Judgment, in following order: (a) Al-Mahdi, (b) The Dajjal (Anti-Christ), (c) Jesus Christ (p). Two of them are good men: (a) Sunni Muslims' Mahdi (b) Jesus Christ (p) (the Messiah). The third man is the Dajjal (Anti-Christ) will certainly be an evil man. The Dajjal means the Deceiver. There might be two evil persons appearing in the End Times, one in 2013 and one in 2022. It is worth noting that the Shia are expecting Imam Mahdi who, as portrayed in Shia's books, seems to be an evil man whom the Shia expect will persecute Sunni Muslims, resurrect and crucify Prophet Mohammad's صلى الله عليه وسلم Companions, Abu Bakr and Omar as well as Aisha (Prophet Mohammad's صلى الله عليه وسلم wife). Shia's Imam Mahdi is not likely to appear, but rather the Dajjal (Anti-Christ) may claim to be Shia's Imam Mahdi. However, we may witness the rise of one or more evil Shia leaders who may claim to be paving the way for Shia's Mahdi. Click here to read various topics about the End of Time, from Islamic (Muslim) perspective, as well as from Christian and Jewish perspective.   3. What is the sequence of events? The following Hadiths present the sequence of events: حدثنا عباس العنبري حدثنا هاشم بن القاسم حدثنا عبد الرحمن بن ثابت بن ثوبان عن أبيه عن مكحول عن جبير بن نفير عن مالك بن يخامر عن معاذ بن جبل قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم عمران بيت المقدس خراب يثرب وخراب يثرب خروج الملحمة وخروج الملحمة فتح قسطنطينية وفتح القسطنطينية خروج الدجال ثم ضرب بيده على فخذ الذي حدثه أو منكبه ثم قال إن هذا لحق كما أنك هاهنا أو كما أنك قاعد يعني معاذ بن جبل Mu'az ibn Jabal narrated that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said: "Omran (Re-building)  of Jerusalem will be (lead to) Kharab (the pillaging and devastation) of Yathrib (Madina in Saudi Arabia). The pillaging of Yathrib will be (lead to) the outbreak of the Big Battle (with the Romans). The outbreak of the Big Battle will be (lead to) the conquest of Constantinople (Istanbul, New York, or European city). The conquest of Constantinople will be (lead to) the coming of Dajjal (Anti-Christ). Then, ... said: This is as real as you (Mu'az ibn Jabal) are here or you are sitting." (Abu Dawud) Please note that the word "Omran" has  the same numerical value as Banu Israel  (Children of Israel). So, "Omran of Jerusalem" means "When the Children of Israel capture Jerusalem".   Jaber bin Samra based on Nafi bin Otba reports that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said: " ...You will march against (or attack) the Arabian Peninsula and Allah will open (conquer) it, then Persia and Allah will open (conquer) it. Then, you will march against (attack) the Romans' land and Allah will open  (or conquer) it. Then, you will march against (attack) the Dajjal (Anti-Christ) (or Dajjal's land), and Allah will open  (conquer) it." Then, Nafi said (to Jaber): "O' Jaber, we will not see the Dajjal emerge until the Romans' land has been conquered (by Allah for the Muslims)." (Sahih Muslim and Ibn Majah)     4.  Signs of the Day of Resurrection based on Sunni Sources   Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim list the following important Hadith about the Hour: عن عمر رضي الله عنه أيضاً قال : بينما نحن جلوس عند رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ذات يوم إذ طلع علينا رجل شديد بياض الثياب شديد سواد الشعر، لا يُرى عليه أثر السفر، ولا يعرفه منا أحد ، حتى جلس إلى النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فأسند ركبتيه إلى ركبتيه ، ووضع كفيه على فخذيه وقال : يا محمد أخبرني عن الإسلام؟ فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : (الإسلام أن تشهد أن لا إله إلا الله وأن محمداً رسول الله ، وتقيم الصلاة ، وتؤتي الزكاة ، وتصوم رمضان ، وتحج البيت إن استطعت إليه سبيل) . قال: صدقت . فعجبنا له يسأله ويصدقه . قال : فأخبرني عن الإيمان؟ قال : ( أن تؤمن بالله وملائكته ، وكتبه ، ورسله ، واليوم الآخر وتؤمن بالقدر خيره وشره ) . قال : صدقت . قال : فأخبرني عن الإحسان؟ قال : ( أن تعبد الله كأنك تراه ، فإن لم تكن تراه فإنه يراك ) . قال : فأخبرني عن الساعة؟ قال : ( ما المسؤول عنها بأعلم من السائل ) . قال : فأخبرني عن أماراتها؟ قال : ( أن تلد الأمة ربتها ، وأن ترى الحفاة العراة العَالَةَ رعَاءَ الشَّاءِ يتطاولون في البنيان ) . ثم انطلق فلبثتُ ملياً ثم قال : ( يا عمر أتدري من السائل؟ ) قلت : الله ورسوله أعلم . قال : ( فإنهذا جبريل أتاكم يعلمكم دينكم ) .   A variation of this Hadith appears in Sahih Muslim listed the Hadith as follows: عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ قَالَ: كَانَ رَسُولُ اللّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَوْما بَارِزا لِلنّاسِ. فَأَتَاهُ رَجُلٌ. فَقَالَ: يَا رَسُولَ اللّهِ مَا الإِيمَانُ؟ قَالَ: "أَنْ تُؤْمِنَ بِالله وَمَلاَئِكَتِهِ وَكِتَابِهِ وَلِقَائِهِ وَرُسُلِهِ وَتُؤْمِنَ بِالْبَعْثِ الاَخِرِ" قَالَ يَا رَسُولَ اللّهِ! مَا الإِسْلاَمُ؟ قَالَ: "الإِسْلاَمُ أَنْ تَعْبُدَ الله لاَ تُشْرِكَ بِهِ شَيْئا، وَتُقِيمَ الصّلاَةَ الْمَكْتُوبَةَ، وَتُؤَدّيَ الزّكَاةَ الْمَفْرُوضَةَ، وَتَصُومَ رَمَضَانَ". قَالَ: يَا رَسُولَ اللّهِ! مَا الإِحْسَانُ؟ قَالَ: "أَنْ تَعْبُدَ الله كَأَنّكَ تَرَاهُ. فَإِنّكَ إِنْ لاَ تَرَاهُ فَإِنّهُ يَرَاكَ". قَالَ: يَا رَسُولَ اللّهِ! مَتَى السّاعَةُ؟ قَالَ: "مَا الْمَسْؤُولُ عَنْهَا بِأَعْلَمَ مِنَ السّائِلِ. وَلَكِنْ سَأُحَدّثُكَ عَنْ أَشْرَاطِهَا: إِذَا وَلَدَتِ الأَمَةُ رَبّهَا فَذَاكَ مِنْ أَشْرَاطِهَا. وَإِذَا كَانَتِ الْعُرَاةُ الْحُفَاةُ رُؤسَ النّاسِ فَذَاكَ مِنْ أَشْرَاطِهَا. وَإِذَا تَطَاوَلَ رِعَاءُ الْبَهْمِ فِي الْبُنْيَانِ فَذَاكَ مِنْ أَشْرَاطِهَا، فِي خَمْسٍ لاَ يَعْلَمُهُنّ إِلاّ الله" ثُمّ تَلاَ صلى الله عليه وسلم: {إِنّ الله عِنْدَهُ عِلْمُ السّاعَةِ وَيُنَزّلُ الْغَيْثَ وَيَعْلَمُ مَا فِي الأَرْحَامِ وَمَا تَدْرِي نَفْسٌ مَاذَا تَكْسِبُ غَدا وَمَا تَدْرِي نَفْسٌ بِأَيّ أَرْضٍ تَمُوتُ. إِنّ الله عَلِيمٌ خَبِيرٌ} (لقمان آية: 34). قَالَ ثُمّ أَدْبَرَ الرّجُلُ. فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم: "رُدّوا عَلَيّ الرّجُلَ" فَأَخَذُوا لِيَرُدّوهُ فَلَمْ يَرَوْا شَيْئا. فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم: "هَذَا جِبْرِيلُ. جَاءَ لِيُعَلّمَ النّاسَ دِينَهُمْ". وأشار إليه الترمذي في باب حديث ابن عمر عن عمر . ورواه ابن ماجه بإسناد مسلم ولفظه إلى آخر الآية . ورواه الإمام أحمد عن إسماعيل حدثنا أبو حيان عن أبي زرعة بن عمر بن جرير عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه . . . . إلخ . وفيه : " وإذا كانت العراة الحفاة الجفاة " . وقال حدثنا محمد بن عبد الله بن نمير حدثنا محمد بن بشر حدثنا أبو حيان التيمي بهذا الإسناد مثله ، غير أن في روايته : " إذا ولدت الأمة بعلها " يعني السراري   There are Minor & Major Signs that indicate Day of  Resurrection (Day of Judgement or Doomsday) is approaching: A. Minor Signs The minor signs generally speaking are expected to occur before the Major signs start. However, it is possible to classify as minor signs, those signs which are either not too significant or not classified as Major Signs. No single Hadith lists all the minor signs, but there are hundreds of minor signs mentioned in hundreds of Hadiths. These Hadiths do not usually mention that they are Minor Signs. On the other hand, there are Hadiths that list all of the Major Signs. So, we can classify as Minor Signs, those signs not listed among the Major signs. Most of the Minor Signs have been fulfilled. The remaining few Minor Signs which have not been fulfilled yet include: (1) Major Earthquakes, Famines, Asteroids, and Epidemic diseases. Some of these Epidemic diseases could be intentionally produced and spread by evil powers, as a form of biological weapons. (2) Euphrates River (which passes through Turkey, Syria, and Iraq) will uncover a mountain of gold (meaning something very valuable). This is in the process of being fulfilled, click here for details. (3) The return of the land of Arabs (Arabian Peninsula) to being green pastures and rivers, instead of its current condition as a desert. Based on Abu Huraira, Prophet Mohammad صلى الله عليه وسلم said: " The Hour (of Resurrection) will not come..... until the land of the Arabs (Arabian Peninsula) returns to being pastures ("paradises" according to Musnad Ahmad) and rivers." (Sahih Muslim, Musnad Ahmad). Saudi Arabia has already started to become green. Click here for more information this amazing development ! (4) Lake of Tiberias in Palestine (also known as Sea of Galilee) will dry up. This prophecy and sign is in the process of being fulfilled. The water in the Sea of Galilee is drying up.   Watch this video that shows Sea of Galilee is drying up:   The Shia's Books mention an additional sign: The Construction of Two Bridges: The Shia  believe the first bridge could be the bridge that connects Saudi Arabia to Bahrain which was completed in 1986. The second bridge they expect it to be the proposed bridge that will connect Saudi Arabia to Egypt. So far, Egypt has rejected the construction of such a bridge under pressure from Israel and the U.S. On the other hand, construction of a bridge connecting Qatar to Bahrain is expected to start this year, in 2010 and to be completed within 4-5 years.   For details regarding the Minor Signs, click here   B. Major Signs In Islam, the major signs of the Day of Resurrection are mentioned in several Hadiths. The following Hadith is one of them (the signs in this Hadith do not necessarily have to occur in the same order mentioned in this Hadith): وفي صحيح مسلم : حدثنا أبو خيثمة، زهير بن حرب وإسحاق بن إبراهيم وابن أبي عمر المكي - واللفظ لزهير - (قال إسحاق: أخبرنا. وقال الآخران: حدثنا) سفيان بن عيينة عن فرات القزاز، عن أبي الطفيل، عن حذيفة بن أسيد الغفاري قال: اطلع النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم علينا ونحن نتذاكر. فقال "ما تذاكرون؟" قالوا: نذكر الساعة. قال "إنها لن تقوم حتى ترون قبلها عشر آيات". فذكر الدخان،والدجال، والدابة، وطلوع الشمس من مغربها، ونزول عيسى ابن مريم صلى الله عليه وسلم، ويأجوج ومأجوج. وثلاثة خسوف: خسف بالمشرق، وخسف بالمغرب، وخسف بجزيرة العرب. وآخر ذلك نار تخرج من اليمن، تطرد الناس إلى محشرهم ". Huzaifa bin Usaid Al-Ghifari reported: Allah's Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم came to us all of a sudden as we were talking. He said: "What are you discussing?" We said: "We are talking about the Last Hour." Thereupon, he  صلى الله عليه وسلم said: "It will not come until you see ten signs before it, he made a mention of: the Smoke, the Dajjal (Anti-Christ), the Daabba, the Rising of the Sun from the West, the Descent of Jesus Son of Mary عليه السلام (from Heaven), the emergence of Ya'juj and Ma'juj (Gog & MaGog), and Khusuf  (Land Collapse) will occur in three places: one in the East, one in the West and one in Arabian Peninsula. At the end, a Fire would burn forth from Yemen (or from Aden according to Ahmad), which would drive people to the place of their final assembly (before they get resurrected by God)." (Sahih Muslim, Musnad Ahmad)   For details regarding the Major Signs, click here   5.
