Impact of the Martyrdom of Imam Hussain (Alayhis Asalam)

‘Blood rained from the sky when the Shahaadah of Imaam Hussain took place’

 

It is reported that when Imam al-Hussain was killed, the sky rained down blood. (Nadra al-Azdiya, a woman who was contemporary with Imam al – Hussain (AS), is said to have reported: “When al-Hussain b. ‘Ali was killed, the sky rained down blood, so that next morning we found our wells and water jugs filled with it.” This hadith is narrated by Ibn Hajar. )

Ummul Fadhl the daughter of al-Harith said that she entered on the Messenger of Allah (SAW) and she said: “Oh! Messenger of Allah, I saw a strange dream last night. He said: And what is it? She said: It was difficult. He said: And what is it? She said: I saw, as if, a piece of your body was severed and was put in my lap! The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: You saw well – Fatima will give birth, God willing, a boy so he will be in your lap. Then Fatima gave birth to al-Hussain and he was in my lap – just as the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said. So I entered one day on the Messenger of Allah (SAW) and put him in his lap, but I noticed that the eyes of the Messenger of Allah (SAW) pouring tears! So I said: Oh! Prophet of Allah, my parents are your ransom, what is with you? He said: Gabriel (AS) came to me and informed me that my nation (ummah) will kill this son of mine.” (al-Mustadrak al-Sahih, al-Hafidh al-Hakim al-Nisapouri, v. 3, p. 176, (al-Hakim said: “This is an authentic hadith (Sahih) on the conditions of Bukhari and Muslim but they did not print it”); Dalael al-Nubouwa, al-Hafidh al-Bayhaqi under the subject of al-Hussain (AS); Cf. Ibn al-A’tham IV, (Hyderabad, 1971), p. 211-2, the author narrates this hadith using a different chain of narration).

Origin of Milad an-Nabi (‘alayhis salam)

 mawlid.jpg

(For those that say the current traditions Mawlid was invented centuries after the passing away from this world of the Holy Prophet (Sall’Allahu Ta’ala Alayhi Wa’alihi Wa’sallam), should look at this piece, especially the dates)   

The beginning of the celebration of the Meelad Shareef in its present form lies with the ruler of Irbil, Sultan Muzaffar whose full name is Abu Said Kukabri Ibn Zain al-Din Ali Ibn Baktagin, who is counted among the great Sultans and generous leaders. He was responsible for many other noble works as well. Among the many monuments set up by him was the Jami Muzaffari, which he had constructed near Mount Tasiyun.

Ibn Kathir (radi Allahu anhu) writes about Sultan Muzaffar as follows: “Sultan Muzaffar used to arrange the celebration of the Meelad Shareef with due honour, glory, dignity and grandeur. In this connection, he used to organise a magnificent festival. He was a pure-hearted, brave and wise Alim and a just ruler. May Allah shower His Mercy on him and grant him an exalted status. Sheikh Abu al-Khattab Ibn Dhiyah also wrote a book for him on the Meelad Shareef entitled ‘al-Tanwir fi Mawlid al-Bashir al-Nadhir’ (Enlightenment on the Birthday of the Bearer of Good News, the Warner). For this book Sultan Muzaffar awarded him a gift of one thousand dinars. Sultan Muzaffar remained the ruler until his death, which occurred in 630 A.H. in the city of ‘Akka when he had the Europeans under siege. In short he was a man of piety and noble disposition”.

Sibt Ibn al-Jauzi (radi Allahu anhu) wrote in “Mir’at al-Zaman” that Read the rest of this entry »

Saying “Ya Rasool’Allah (Sallalahu Alaihi Wassalam) Madad”

The permissibility to say ‘Ya Muhammad!’ [May Allah bless him and grant him peace]

The sensitive issue of whether or not Muslims can say the words ‘Ya Rasool Allah’ or ‘Ya Muhammad!’ [May Allah bless him and grant him peace] needs to be clarified, since this issue divides the Muslim community and causes a great deal of friction among the Muslims throughout the world. Basically, there appears to be what we could label as two “schools of thought”. One insists that saying that stating “Ya Rasul Allah is ‘shirk’ and that any Muslim proclaiming it in fact goes outside the pale of Islam. Now the other School believes that it is indeed permissible to say so – based on evidences from the Salaf, and the tafsirs of later day scholars. However, they do not insist that one must proclaim this – or that it is even a fard to do so, rather, it is permissible to do so. This is, and always has been, the stance of the Ahl al-Sunna.

Does Rasool’Allah (Sallalahu Alaihi Wassalam) have a shadow?

We are living in a world of uncertainty and misconceptions. Man is beginning to question the very roots of his beliefs- Allah Almighty and the Holy Prophet Sall Allahu alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallim, to create doubt in the minds of the simple and un suspecting Muslims. Some so-called scholars, not so long ago began a shocking campaign against the flawless personality of Allah Almighty in the form of ‘the possibility of telling a lie ‘ ; which plunged the Muslim world into utter disbelief and shock. This misguided man wrote: “Allah has power over everything. Thus if He so wishes , He can utter a lie” (Allah Forbid). It is true, when Allah Almighty wants to destroy a person, He first takes away his sanity. This religious heretic conveniently forgot the Quranic verse: “Curse of Allah be upon the liars”. Will Allah Almighty indulge in an activity which He himself has condemned? Unfortuantely, instead of dismissing this lie with the contempt that it deserves, many Muslims became the followers and disciples of this lunatic. Read the rest of this entry »

541829184_c9c3200e45_m.jpg 

The Ulema and the A’imma have requested that the Nalain Shareef (sandals) of the Holy Prophet (Sall’Allahu Ta’ala Alayhi Wa’alihi Wa’sallam) to be printed on paper and in books.  An actual picture of the Holy Prophet’s (Sall’Allahu Ta’ala Alayhi Wa’alihi Wa’sallam) Nalain Shareef or an impression together with a description of the blessings is utilised to obtain blessings of Nalain Shareef. There are many blessingsfor a person to keep a picture of Nalian Shareef with him.  It is not uncommon to see Muslims of all ages wearing badges in the shape of Nalain Shareef.  The Ulema have commanded that it be kissed, rubbed over the yes or kept on the head.  It can be used as mediation, cure for illness and has great blessings.
