Imaam Abu Hanifa (radi ‘allahu ‘anhu) writes that Haaris ibn La’man and Haarisa bin Na’man (radi allahu ‘anhuma) have said that,”Once I went to the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). The Prophet (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) asked me a question, ‘Oh Haaris, in what state did you pass the day ?’ I replied, ‘As a true Muslim.’ Then the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) asked me the state of my Faith. I replied, ‘I see the Throne of Allah and the people of Paradise helping each other and the people of Hell lamenting in Hell. I see in front of me Eight Heavens and Seven Hells as clear as idol worshippers see their idols. I can recognise each individual just like a grinder can recognise wheat from barley that is, who is to go to Paradise and who is to be found in Hell. In front of me people are like fish and ants. Shall I stay silent or continue to speak ?’” The Prophet (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) told him to stop and say no more. [Fiqah Akbar, Page 132 by Imam Abu Hanifa (radi allahu anhu)]

When Sayyiduna Abu Bakr as-Siddiq (Radi Allahu Anhu) was four years old, his father took him in front of an idol in the Ka’bah and said to him, “This is your mighty Lord, so make Sajdah to him.”

When he (Radi Allahu Anhu) heard this he said to the idol, “I am hungry, feed me. I am naked, cloth me. I will throw a stone at you, if you are the Lord then defend yourself.”

There was no response from the idol. So he took a stone and hit the idol. The Divinely blessed power and force of the stone dropped the idol. On seeing this, his father became furious and slapped him on the face. He then took him home and complained to the mother. She replied,

“Leave him alone because when he was born I heard someone from the Unseen saying to me, ‘O servant lady of Allah! Glad tiding to you on the birth of this free child whose name in the skies is Siddique (Truthful) and he will be the close companion of Muhammad (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam)’. At that time I did not know who Muhammad (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was and what all this meant”.

Sayyiduna Abu Bakr Siddique (Radi Allahu Anhu) personally reported this incident to the Holy Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam). After he reported this, an Angel appeared and confirmed,

“Abu Bakr speaks the truth and he is Siddique (Truthful).”

This Hadith Sharif is recorded in “Awaliyul Farsh ila Ma’aaliyul Arsh” and quoted by Imam Ahmad Qastalaani (Alayhir Rahmah) in his commentary of Sahih al-Bukhari.

The easiest way to memorize the Noble Qur’an….

By: Shaikh ‘Abdul Muhsin Bin Muhammad Al Qaasim an Imaamand Khateeb in the Masjid of Prophet (SallAllaahu alaihi wa sallam).
Translated by: Abu ‘Abdis Salaam Siddiq Al Juyaanee

All praise and thanks belongs to Allah and may the peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and all of his companions.

The following method (for memorizing the Qur’an) is distinguished due to its facilitation of a well-grounded and strong memorization of the entire Qur’an in a relatively short period of time. The following is an example of this method utilizing the first page of Suratul Jumu’ahas an example:

1-Recite the first verse 20 times
2-Recite the second verse 20 times
3-Recite the third verse 20 times
4-Recite the fourth verse 20 times
5-Recite these four verses together 20 times to fortify the order of verses (1-4)
6-Recite the fifth verse 20 times
7-Recite the sixth verse 20 times
8-Recite the seventh verse 20 times
9-Recite the eighth verse 20 times
10-Recite verses five to eight 20 times to fortify the order of verses (5-8)
11-Recite verses one to eight 20 times to solidify the memorization of this page

Similarly, utilize this method for every page of the Qur’an, to proceed to a new page the following day; first start by reciting the previous page 20 times to fortify the memorization of that page, then proceed to memorize the new page utilizing the method I previously mentioned.

And all success is from Almighty Allah.

When you feel like you can’t keep going, turn your heart to Allah and say this: “I can’t. But You can. I’m weak. But You’re strong. Take me in, not because of me—but because of You. Your mercy is stronger than my weakness. Your perfection is greater than my humanness. I beseech You to replace what’s lost, mend what’s broken, and allow my hope in You to kill my despair.

ahlulbaytsahaba

ahlulbaytsahaba:

Out of all the historic shrines in Kashmir the 245-year-old shrine to the Sufi saint Hazrat Shaykh Syed Abdul Qadir Jeelani (Alaihi Al Rehma), also called the Pir Dastgir Sahib, was considered one of the oldest shrine buildings in Srinagar. In an unfortunate event on June 25, 2012, much of this shrine was destroyed by fire after police noticed  a small bit of smoke rising from the building’s roof at 6:30am. Police did say at the time most of the relics inside the shrine were saved as firefighters rushed to save the building without luck. This is considered a tragic loss for many Kashmiris, who continue to morn one of their most beloved religious sites. This video tribute to the memory of this shrine was posted on Youtube by two nomadic adventuresome men from the U.S. and Germany, Tony and Thomas, who were traveling in Srinagar in 2008.

The Valley of Kashmir is world renowned for its snow-clad mountain peaks, orchards of apples and almonds, lush green pastures and meadows, Chinar trees, magnificent lakes, springs and important water bodies like Jhelum, Indus and Chenab, Mughal gardens, handicrafts and tourism, and also elegant Pashmina shawls. But it is equally well-known for being the ‘Pir Waer’, meaning the ‘Alcove of Sufis and Saints’.
