        The Basics of Tasawwuf

        Quran-verse

        { The day on which property will not avail, nor sons; except
        him who comes to Allah with a sound heart.} (26-88/9)

        “...Until, when no Alim [i.e. knowledgable, learned person in the religion of Islam] is left, people will take ignorant men for teachers. These will be questioned and they will reply without knowledge. They are themselves misguided and misguide others.” (Hadith of the Prophet MHMD 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 MHMD, 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.

        bitly-url
        bit.ly/12emm2k

        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 MHMD . 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



        YaGhaffar YaGhafur
        Al-Ghafûr:
        the All-forgiving i.e. the One who forgives every thing, all things
        Al-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:
        Sura7_33
        {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:

        an.tabuda
        The Messenger of Allah MHMD 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 MHMD also used to say:
        "Truly, Allah does not look at your outward forms and wealth, but rather at your hearts and your works."
        Allah swt 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 swt warns us from the disease of the heart, which results in eternal damnation:
        Sura 2_10
        { 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)
        Sura 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)




        spacetasawwuf

        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 swt . Then there will be blessings (barakah) and ease:
        { With hardship comes ease.} (94-5)


        3.1 A Difficult Science, With Great Benefit

        It 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.
        Sura 90_12
        { 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 swt knows best.”[SSK43]


        3.2 An Individually Obligatory Science For Everyone

        The 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 MHMD :
        911-link
        “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 radiyaa

        *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 swt says:

        Sura 18_28
        { 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 Kharsa


        3.5 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:
        Sura 100_8
        { 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.

        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 swt Most High, fleeing unto Him [by taking a spiritual path - tarîq ].

        012→ Its fruits are the heart's development, knowledge of God - Allah swt - 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. AV

        014→ It should be pointed out that Sufism has existed before its name since the very time of the Profet MHMD 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 swt 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 swt 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 swt 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 MHMD night and day with full presence of mind,
        * and keeping the company of him who guides one to Allah swt[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 MHMD (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.[schoolofsufiteaching.org]

         

        06 - Sufism Is Self-Purification

        061→ Hadith of the Prophet MHMD 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 radiyaa 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 Shuyukh

        081→ 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 LivingIslam.org)

        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 ]

        Epilogue

        This strange idea that Islam can be (understood as being) complete without taking recourse to the treasure of spiritual, guiding knowledge of the centuries of (the saints and `ulema') of the Muslim Ummah has now been disproven and shown to be a grave misunderstanding, a forbidden change, an innovation (bid`a) in our noble religion of Islam and a ridicule for all the rest.

        May Allah swt increase us with knowledge and mercy (marhamah)!
        May Allah guide us the correct path!
        May Allah's peace and blessings be upon Sayyiduna Muhammad, his family and his companions.

        It has to be emphasized that tasawwuf as spiritual training and method, cannot be learned from books and sophisticated theories about God - Allah - and the universe. The spiritual initiation cannot be attained except through a shaykh. All that books can do is prepare the aspirant on the spiritual path in a general fashion.
        But first of all he has to learn the most important elements of the Shari’ah and fiqh.

            numerical19.tripod.com —  The Numbers in Islam are more than what you see.   Over it are Nineteen.And We have set none but angels as Guardians of the Fire; and We have fixed their number only as a trial for Unbelievers, in order that the People of the Book may arrive at certainty, and the Believers may increase in Faith,and that no doubts may be left for the People of the Book and the Believers, and that those in whose hearts is a disease and the Unbelievers may say, "What symbol doth Allah intend by this ?" Thus doth Allah leave to stray whom He pleaseth, and guide whom He pleaseth: and none can know the forces of thy Lord, except He and this is no other than a warning to mankind.HQ 74:30,31 Since 14 September 2000 Last update : 22 February 2012 This website is not about Mystic Numerologies, Cabalas, Superstitions, Predictions and Witchcraftssince those things are prohibited in Islam.This website is pure about Mathematical Calculations and Simple forms of Mathematical Science relatedto the world of ISLAM. Noteworthy:1. I am not the follower of Rashad Khalifa, but I respect his discoveries.2. I am a Sunni and I believe both Al-Qur'an and the hadiths of the Prophet s.a.w.3. If you have critics, corrections, and suggestions, don't hesitate to contact me.4. Do you have any discoveries about Mathematical Miracles especially related to Islam?Please share them here.5. The Advertisements on this web are not in owner's control. They are belong to the HOST.6.I use Al-Qur'an Mushaf Uthmani for my research. Thanks.   Why 19? When told about the mathematical miracle of the Quran and how it is related to number 19 , many people ask : Why 19?! If it was 17 or 21, they would have asked the same question, WHY 21 ?  or  Why 17 ?. But of course there is more than one reason for that choice. Number 19 as we know by now is mentioned in the Quran in Sura 74 verse 30. God even told us the significance of this number in 74:31. The student of the scriptures will find enough evidence that the mathematical code, based on number 19, was used for the previous scripture as well. Since distortion changed the whole face of the old scripture we were left only with the Quran as the only preserved word of God. It is God's choice for this to happen. Even the universe at large bears this divine mark. The number 19 can be looked upon as the Almighty Creator's signature on everything He created. The number 19 possesses unique mathematical properties, for example: 1-It is a prime number , only divides by itself and one. 2-It encompasses the first numeral (1) and the last numeral (9), as if to proclaim God's attribute in 57:3 as the "Alpha and the Omega". 3-Its {numerals} look the same in all languages in the world.The numerals (1) and (9) look very much the same in , for example Arabic and English. 4-It possesses many peculiar mathematical properties. For example, 19 is the sum of the first powers of 9 and 10, and the difference between the second powers of 9 and 10. 5-Number 19 is the numerical value of the word "ONE" in all the scriptural languages, Aramaic, Hebrew, and Arabic. The number 19, therefore proclaims the First commandment in all the scriptures: that there is only ONE GOD. The word "ONE" "Wahid" in reference to God, in the Quran, is used 19 times. Is it a co-incidence? The number 19 itself has no power and has no holiness, and can lead you no where. It is the Miracle that is based on this number that has the significance. This significance is explained clearly by God Almighty Himself in 74:30-31. 74:30-31 states the following Over it are Nineteen.And We have set none but angels as Guardians of the Fire; and We have fixed their number only as a trial for Unbelievers, in order that the People of the Book may arrive at certainty, and the Believers may increase in Faith,and that no doubts may be left for the People of the Book and the Believers, and that those in whose hearts is a disease and the Unbelievers may say, "What symbol doth Allah intend by this ?" Thus doth Allah leave to stray whom He pleaseth, and guide whom He pleaseth: and none can know the forces of thy Lord, except He and this is no other than a warning to mankind. Allah the Almighty controlled everything.   WAHID, History of Muhammad (saw) and 19 33 Seems to be one of the important number in Islam Uploaded 24 January 2011 The Hidden Mathematical Calculation inside surah Al-Kahf Al-Qur'an mentions Gregory and Hijri Calendar Uploaded 20 January 2011 114 PRIME NUMBERS The addition of 114 Prime Numbers will give you surprises Uploaded 06 December 2010 PRIME NUMBER NO 632 The year of the death and his age coded in Prime Number Uploaded 30 November 2010   Click the image to find more.

            tibbenabawi.org —     Tibb-e-Nabawi ~ Healing by ISLAM, both for the body & soul, for the doctor & patient, for the sick & healthy بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ وَالنَّجْمِ إِذَا هَوَى مَا ضَلَّ صَاحِبُكُمْ وَمَا غَوَى وَمَا يَنطِقُ عَنِ الْهَوَى إِنْ هُوَ إِلاَّ وَحْيٌ يُوحَى عَلَّمَهُ شَدِيدُ الْقُوَى By the Star when it goes down, your Companion is neither astray nor being misled, and neither does he speak out of his own desire, that which he conveys to you is but a divine revelation with which he is being Inspired, something that a very Mighty One Has Imparted to him. (Surah Najm ~ Verses 1 to 5) All praise to Allah Who Created the human from soil, He is Allah Who also Made rocks from the soil which can crush the soil, He is Allah Who Created Iron which breaks the rocks, He is Allah Who Created Fire which melts the Iron, He is Allah Who Created WATER which extinguishes the fire, He is Allah Who Created AIR which can carry tons of water as clouds, & He is Allah Who Descends the rain & Gives life to dead soil. Tibb-e-Nabawi is the divine medicine that was Gifted by Allah to Prophet Muhammad Salallaho Alaihe Wasallam by WAHEE (revelation). It is the true healing for both the doctor & patient, for the sick & healthy. Purpose of this website is to emphasize that Tibb-e-Nabawi is a complete code of medicine, both for the health of heart (soul) & physical fitness. We ignored it for the last few hundreds of years and as a result, no one in this world considers Tibb-e-Nabwi even as an alternative medicine, you will find followers of Acupuncture, Unani, Ayurveda, Herbalism, Homeopathy, Naturopathy, etc. but very few adopt Tibb-e-Nabawi as their first priority of cure & healing. There are many books written on Tibb-e-Nabawi, but Ibn Al Qayyam Al Jauziah's book is the most comprehensive, Ibn Al Qayyam was a miracle of Allah’s creations, he lived for 60 years, but had an experience of 1,000 years, precision and perfection of his knowledge on ISLAM & Medicine is reflected in his book on Tibb-e-Nabawi, & we have understood that he has presented the “Diagnosis & Prescription” with curing the heart & soul primarily; prior to treat the physical ailment. He wrote: "There is a tremendous connection between the soul and what the body suffers due to physical diseases. Only the most ignorant people will deny the effects of the soul on body and on human nature as a whole. Allah Gives the soul certain powers over the body when someone is attacked by diseases. In addition, the soul has certain effects on the body when it experiences the ailments that are caused by septic substances, especially when blood, semen or black bile is irritated. Evil forces take control of the body when it experiences such emotions and ailments, unless the person repels it with an even stronger power, such as remembering Allah, supplicating to Him, invoking and pleading to Him, giving in charity (Sadaqah) and reciting the Quran. In this case, angels will descend and will defeat and neutralize the evil effects of the devilish souls (evil forces). We have successfully tried this method many times, that which only Allah is Able to count, and we witnessed the wonderful effects of such positive forces (good souls) in strengthening one’s resolve and ridding him of bad elements. This method almost never fails". Disease was Created by Allah & CURE is also Provided by Allah, so why to go through the painful cycle of DMC (Disease ~ Medicine ~ CURE) ? By disease, Allah Provides an opportunity to reduce the burden of sins, furthermore, He Needs from a Muslim to follow the true principals of SHIFA, which help a Muslim to develop & strengthen belief on his LORD, the DMC cycle creates a strong connection between a Muslim & Rahman, between a slave & his Master, between a Mo’min (Allah’s name) and a Mo’min (A Muslim). Following are the true principals of SHIFA / Healing which cure both the heart (soul) & body : 1. Healing by Belief (Yaqeen) that Allah Has Sent the disease & Allah is the HEALER, & if the healing is delayed, it is by Allah’s Wisdom & Hikmah 2. Healing by Aa’maal-e-Saalehaat, Salaat, Sadaqah, Fast, Quran, Zikr, Duaas & Ruqya, Husn-e-Khulq, abstaining from sins, Istighfaar, etc. 3. Healing by the foods of Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam 4. Healing by the herbs of Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam 5. Healing by HIJAMAH; which is Sunnah & the best kind of treatment in this world When all of the above tools are combined together, it is very difficult for any sickness / ailment to withstand the crushing power of Tibb-e-Nabawi. Return to Page Top We have classified the contents of Tibb-e-Nabawi in these 5 categories, & many articles on this website are copied from Ibn Al Qayyam's book "Zaad al Ma'aad". The most beautiful words in his book are as under : وليس طِبُّه صلى الله عليه وسلم كطِبِّ الأطباء، فإن طبَّ النبىّ صلى الله عليه وسلم متيقَّنٌ قطعىٌ إلهىٌ، صادرٌ عن الوحى، ومِشْكاةِ النبوة، وكمالِ العقل‏.‏ وطبُّ غيرِه أكثرُه حَدْسٌ وظنون، وتجارِب، ولا يُنْكَرُ عدمُ انتفاع كثير من المرضى بطبِّ النبوة، فإنه إنما ينتفعُ به مَن تلقَّاه بالقبول، واعتقاد الشفاء به، وكمال التلقى له بالإيمان والإذعان، فهذا القرآنُ الذي هو شفاء لما في الصدور إن لم يُتلقَّ هذا التلقى لم يحصل به شفاءُ الصُّدور مِن أدوائها، بل لا يزيدُ المنافقين إلا رجساً إلى رجسهم، ومرضاً إلى مرضهم، وأين يقعُ طبُّ الأبدان منه، فطِب النبوةِ لا يُناسب إلا الأبدانَ الطيبة، كما أنَّ شِفاء القرآن لا يُناسب إلا الأرواح الطيبة والقلوب الحية، فإعراضُ الناس عن طِبِّ النبوة كإعراضهم عن الاستشفاء بالقرآن الذي هو الشفاء النافع، وليس ذلك لقصور في الدواء، ولكن لخُبثِ الطبيعة، وفساد المحل، وعدمِ قبوله‏.‏‏.‏ والله الموفق‏.‏ Prophetic medicine is not similar to that offered by doctors and physicians. Prophetic medicine is indeed the effective treatment and cure provided by the revelation and the guidance of the Prophet Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam; that is coupled with a sound and perfect mind. In comparison, the majority of remedies prescribed by others are built on hypothesis, observation and experimentation. It is a fact that many people do not benefit from Prophetic medicine because it will help only those who acknowledge and have faith in it. Thus, they believe that it will help them and they then submit to it. If Qur’an, which is a cure for whatever the heart conceals, is not acknowledged and accepted with faith, it will not provide a cure for the heart. In fact, Quran will only add more evil and disease to the hearts of the hypocrites. Prophetic medicine is only suitable for good and pure bodies, just as Quran is only suitable for righteous souls and feeling hearts. Therefore, when the people ignore Prophetic medicine, it is like ignoring the help with the guidance of Quran, which is the most effective medicine. Again, when the medicine (Quran and the Prophetic medicine) do not work, it is due to the negativity in the body and soul that are not suitable for accepting the medicine, not because the medicine does not work. All success comes from ALLAH. The relationship of (scientific) medicine to the Prophetic medicine is similar to scientific thought in comparison to divine revelations (to the Prophets). Indeed there are scientific phenomena and medical therapies to which even the best scientist and doctors have no real answers. Even to this day despite the advances made by science and technology, many mysteries remain. The results and comfort of spiritual therapies comes only from faith and trust in ALLAH. They come through charity, prayer, repentance and seeking ALLAH’s forgiveness. They are aided by doing good deeds, helping the helpless and relieving the afflicted. The causes for these cures are varied and defy logical analysis. And the resultant cures cannot be explained by scientific experimentation and analysis. All this is in accordance of the law of ALLAH and nothing outside it. When a person’s heart becomes attuned to the Lord of the world, and trusting of the Creator of all ailments and their remedies, medicines which would otherwise be ineffective in an individual who is unbelieving and indifferent of heart become effective,. It has been experienced that when a man’s belief is strong, his body and soul are strengthened and they co-operate in repelling disease and overcoming it. This cannot be denied except by the most ignorant of people.   PLEASE CLICL ON LINK: http://www.tibbenabawi.org/

            banialawi.com — بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم الحمد لله الهادي إلى الصراط المستقيم والصلاة والسلام على من أرسله الله رحمة للعالمين سيدنا محمد وآله وصحبه ومن اهتدى بهديهم من التابعين     بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم كلّ امر ذى بال لم يبدأ ببسم الله فهو ابتر Any work that does not begin with Bismil’la is devoid of barakah SINCERITY1 so that one acts for God Most High,and avoid all forms of ostentation He has said: They were only commanded to serve God, sincere in their religion to Him, as men by nature upright (98:5) and Whosoever desires the harvest of Afterlife, We shall give him increase in the harvest and Whosoever desires the harvest ofthis world, We give him thereof, and of the Afterlife he has no share,(42:20).and Whoever desires the life of this world, and its ornaments, We shall repay them in it for their deeds, and they shall not be wronged therein. Those are the ones who shall have nothing in the Afterlife except the Fire, All that they do here is worthless and all their acts are without gain (11:15-16) and Let whoever hopes for the meeting with his Lord act righteously, and make anyone share in the worship due to his Lord (18:111) Muslim relates on the authority of Abu Hurayra (r) that the Prophet (s) said, “God – Great and Glorious is He! says: I am in less need of partners than anyone. Therfore when a man does anything for My sake, and for the sake of another as well, then I am quit of him, and he is empartnered to what he empartnered to Me’.” Bukhari and Muslim relate on the authority of Jundud (r) that the Prophet (s) said, “ Whoever acts to be heard and seen, God will cause his falsity to be heard and seen.” Al-Rabi’ ibn Khaytham said, “Every act which is not performed for the sake of God comes to nothing “ Sufyan said in connection with the verse “ Everything shall perish exept His Face (28:28) ” that it can be interpreted as meaning, “ Everthing that is not done for His sake shall perish.” 1 Excerpt from the book, “The seventy seven branches of Faith “by Imam al-Bayhaqi abridged by Imam al-Qazwini and translated by Abdal-Hakim Murad بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful TRANSLATOR’ PREFACE Excerpt from the book WORSHIP (FROM AL-NASAIH AL-DINNYYAH by IMAM ABDULLAH IBN ALAWI AL-HADDAD), Translated by Sheikh Abdul Aziz Ahmed, published by Kitaba-Islamic Texts for the Blind, Glasgow UK WORSHIP IBADAH, WORSHIP, is the purpose of our existence. Allah says, ‘I have not created man or jinn except to worship Me[1]’.To worship Him means to recognise Him and then to submit to Him. The angel Jibril was sent to teach us that religion consists of three interconnected elements, iman (belief), islam (submitting to Him through worship) and ihsan (excellence in one’s relationship with Allah and creation). Iman is the process of recognising Him and being aware of Him. One articulates this through the declaration known as the shahadah, where one declares la ilaha illAllah wa Muhammadu rasulallah, there is no god but Allah and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah. A sincere declaration of faith should lead to loving awe.This is called Taqwa. It is defined as, ‘fulfilling the commandments of Allah and avoiding His prohibitions both inwardly and outwardly while feeling adoration and reverence for Allah as well as awe, fear and dread.’ This had been dealt with in the first book in this series. The book of Worship deals with the second element of the religion and provides a more detailed explanation of obedience. The Prophet, upon him be peace, described the foundation of worship: ‘Islam has been built on five pillars: Bearing witness that there is no god but Allah and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, establishment of the ritual prayer, the giving of Zakat, fasting in Ramadan and performing of Pilgrimage.’[2] The word Salah, ritual prayer, is derived from the root ‘wa-sa-la’ which means to ‘to connect’. It is said that the ‘salah’ is the ‘sila’ (connection) between the servant and his Lord. Imam al-Haddad, echoing the Prophet’s word, describes it as ‘the pillar of the religion’.[3] He says it is ‘to the religion what the head is to the body’. Like all other forms of worship, it is more than a mere ritual. He says in the Discourse on Salah: The prayer has an outer form and an inner reality. The prayer is incomplete and imperfect without the establishment of both. The outer form includes the standing (al-qiyam), the recitation (alqira’ah), the bowing (al-ruku’), prostration (al-sajda) and the like.The inner realities include presence (al-khushu’) concentration of the heart (hudur al-qulb), complete sincerity, contemplation of the meanings of the recitation and the glorification (tasbih) and other elements from the inner dimensions of the prayer. Zakat is sometimes thought of as charity or alms or tax. The word has two meanings. Firstly, it means to grow and secondly, to purify. In a legal sense, it means to give from one’s specific possessions under specific circumstances. The specific possessions include gold and silver, money, livestock, trade goods, treasure and crops. The specific circumstances are mentioned briefly in this book and are detailed in the books of jurisprudence. The giving of Zakat ‘purifies’ one’s wealth and as a result, it ‘grows’ in blessing. However, the real purification and growth is in the inner being of the one who gives the Zakat. His lower self is purified of the love of this temporal world. The Quran uses the word Zakat in this context when He, the Exalted’ says: ‘By the soul and the proportion and order given to it, and its enlightenment as to wrong and its right. Truly he succeeds who purifies it.[4] Saum, is the Arabic word for fasting. It means to ‘to hold back’ or ‘restrain’. The holding back and restraining of the lower self is an ongoing process but is aided by the compulsory fast of Ramadan. Hajj or pilgrimage is the directing of one’s self towards Allah through physically moving towards and around His Sacred House in Makkah and performing the rites associated with the visit. These rites were established by the prophet Ibrahim (Abraham), and re-established by Muhammad, upon him be peace. In doing so, he completed Allah’s message concerning worship. It was during the pilgrimage that Allah said: ‘This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed My favour upon you and have chosen for you Islam as your religion.’[5] We ask Allah to make us of those who show gratitude for this favour through the establishment of true worship in all aspects. Amin. IMAM AL-HADDAD Abdullah bin Alawi al-Haddad was a descendent of the Prophet Muhammad, upon him be peace, whose forefathers settled in the Hadramaut valley of Southern Arabia. Those forefathers established a strong tradition of knowledge and calling people to God through their words, actions and writings. They stood for orthodox Islam of the people of the Quran and Sunnah with a strong emphasis on spiritual growth and good character. Their teachings were influenced by scholars such as al-Ghazali and Abu Talib al-Makki.[6] Imam al-Haddad was born to two of the most upright and saintly people of that time. His parents ‘Alawi bin Muhammad al-Haddad and Salma bint ‘Umar al-Munaffar were known for their spirituality as well as their knowledge of the legal system and tradition of Islam. The noble Salma gave birth to our Imam Abdullah on 5th Safar 1044H, 1st August 1634 CE. Aged three, Imam al-Haddad became ill and lost his sight. Although there were fears that becoming blind might hamper his spiritual and intellectual growth it seemed to have had the opposite effect. His teachers noted an increase in his eagerness and ability to memorise the Quran and other texts and an increase in his devotional worship. His childhood friend, Abdullah Bal-Faqih used to say, ‘although our performance of worship was together, Abdullah would always surpass us.’ Even as a young child he used to perform between a hundred and two hundred additional prayer cycles every morning. By the age of fifteen, he had studied under almost all the scholars of the area and was eagerly memorising major texts including the Shafi’ law manual al-Irshad. It is reported that he studied under 140 different scholars. After mastering the outer Islamic sciences, his interest was initially not on teaching but on retreat from the world. At seventeen years old, he took to long periods of seclusion in the mosque of al-Hajira in Tarim. For a while he refused pleas to teach, but eventually succumbed to the request of a sincere student from the Ba Fadl clan and a relative named Hasan al-Jifri. Once he began teaching, his thirst for knowledge increased once again and he dedicated himself to teaching, studying and calling people to God. He was kind and loving and cared a great deal for his community. He was particularly concerned about the poor, widows and orphans. On the rare occasions when he became annoyed with his own servant, he would give him a present to abate his own anger prompting his servant to remark, ‘I wish he would be annoyed with me more often.’ In 1079H, 1668 CE, the Imam performed the pilgrimage to Makkah and visited his noble grandfather, upon whom be peace, in Madina. He met many of the world’s leading scholars and returned intellectually and spiritually invigorated by the experience. After his return, he settled in al-Hawi on the outskirts of Tarim where he established a mosque and his new home. This became the centre of his teaching activities and calling to God. He wrote many books and guided people through direct spiritual training, teaching and litanies which are read today all over the world. He would go out to visit remote villages, teach people at home and write to the rulers and governors. It was because of his tremendous effort in calling to God that he earned the title ‘ Qutb al-da’wah wal-Irdhad’, the Pole of Calling and Guidance. He continued teaching and calling to God until his death on 7th Dhul Qa’da 1132, 12 August 1720 CE. May Allah be pleased with him and benefit us by him. [1] Al-Dhariyat 51:56 [2] Related by al-Bukhari in the Book of Faith (hadith no 8) and Muslim in the Book of Faith (hadith no 8) [3] The Imam’s statement reflects the hadith, ‘prayer is the pillar (imad) of the religion as related on the authority of ‘Aisha by al-Bayhaqi in his Branches of Faith. [4] Al-Shams 91: 7-9 [5] Al-Maida 5:3 [6] Abu Talib al-Makki was an ascetic scholar born in Iraq where he died in 386H/996 CE. His famous book was Qut al-Qulub, Provision of the Hearts, describes the spiritual dimension of worship. Imam Abu Hamid al-Ghazali gathered knowledge of the outer and inner sciences of Islam in his various books but most importantly in a collection entitled Ihya ‘Ulum al-Din, Revival of Islamic Sciences. He died near Tabiran in modern day Iran in 505H/1111CE.   new additions.. 1. Preface to Book of Al-Nasaih Al-Dinniyah by Imam Abdullah Ibn Alawi Al-Haddad (frontpage) 2.

            ghazali.org —       al-Ghazālī website The Revival of the Religious Sciences (Iḥyāʾ ʿulūm al-dīn) is widely regarded as the greatest work of Muslim spirituality, and is perhaps the most read work in the Muslim world, after the Qurʾān. The Revival of the Religious Sciences is divided into four parts, each containing ten chapters. Part one deals with knowledge and the requirements of faith—ritual purity, prayer, charity, fasting, pilgrimage, recitation of the Qurʾān, and so forth; part two concentrates on people and society—the manners related to eating, marriage, earning a living, and friendship; parts three and four are dedicated to the inner life of the soul and discuss first the vices that people must overcome in themselves and then the virtues that they must strive to achieve. Below are details of the contents of the books, translations (mainly into English) and a link to the original Arabic here for the first time on the internet.   Overview of the Iḥyāʾ by Ḥajī Khalifa (In Arabic) Iḥyāʾ ʿulūm al-dīn: In Arabic for the first time with takhrīj (ḥadīth verification) by Ḥāfiẓ al-ʿIrāqī (Word files).

For more information about the summaries of the Iḥyāʾ in Arabic, see this short article (Arabic html). Summary by Aḥmad al-Ghazālī (pdf) Lubab al-iḥyāʾ, published here as Mukhtaṣar Iḥyāʾ ʿulūm al-dīn. The publisher claims that it is by Abū Ḥāmid al-Ghazālī, though I believe this is incorrect (PDF) The Iḥyāʾ was summarized in a book entitled Minhaj al-qaṣidīn by Ibn al-Jawzī (d. 597 AH/1201 CE), which was further summarized inMukhtaṣar minhaj al-qaṣidin by Ibn Qudāma al-Maqdisī (d. 620 AH/1341 CE).

COMMENTARY: one commentary (sharḥ) of al-Iḥyaʾ exists by Murtaḍā al-Zabīdī's [d. 1791] Itḥaf al-sada al-muttaqīn bi sharḥ iḥyāʾ ʿulum al-dīn. Cairo 1894 in 10 large volumes (Sample extract introduction PDF). This work is still in print in facsimiles of this edition as well as well as a newly re-typeset edition. Note that the link provided is for the complete 1894 edition. Defense: As many were critical of al-Ghazālī there were as many if not more who rallied to his defense: In his own defense, al-Ghazālī wrote: al-Imlāʾ fī ishkalat al-iḥyāʾ (Notes on issues of the Iḥyāʾ) printed as an appendix in some editions of the Iḥyāʾ (pdf) ʿAbd al-Qādir al-ʿAydrūs, Taʿarif al-aḥyāʾ bi faḍʾil al-iḥyāʾ (Introducing the living to the benefits of the Iḥyāʾ) printed as an appendix in some editions of the Iḥyāʾ (pdf). Note the pun in the title, which is, of course, intentional. al-Suyūṭī, Tashyad al-ʾarkan fī "laysa min al-imkan ʾabdaʿ min maʾ kān (Fortifying the foundations of [the statement] "the best of all possible worlds" ) printed as an appendix in some editions of the Iḥyāʾ (PDF). Note also this was part of a study done in Theodicy in Islamic Thought: The Dispute over Al-Ghazālī's "Best of All Possible Worlds" by Eric L. Ormsby (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1984). Unknown author: Risala fi bayan faḍil iḥyāʾ ʿulum al-dīn (mss in al-Azhar number 1956 [majami 91] folios 76-86). Unknown author: Risala fi al-rad ʿala min ʿatraḍa ʿala al-ghazālī fi qawlihi ana al-musabibat ratabat ʿala al-ʾasbab (mss in Dar al-Kutub al-misriyya [majami 210]) Refutations: This work has generated some heated discussions mostly revolving around the traditions that al-Ghazālī included here but also about some of his statements. Ibn al-Jawzī (d. 597 AH) iʿlam al-aḥyaʾ bi aghlat al-iḥyāʾ (not printed and no known mss copies) al-Dhahabi mentioned that Abū al-Ḥasan b.
