Signs of The Last Day

Signs of Qayamat

"I believe in ALLAH, in His Angels, His Scriptures, His Prophets, the Day of Judgment, and in the fact that every thing good or bad (in the world) is pre-destined by ALLAH the Exalted, and in the resurrection after death."

"The Clatterer. What is the Clatterer?. And what teaches thee what the Clatterer is?. The day that men shall be like scattered moths. And the mountains shall be like carded wool. Then as for him whose scales are heavy. He shall be in a pleasing life. And as for him whose scales are light. His abode shall be the Abyss. And what teaches thee what it is?. A blazing Fire". ( 101 : 1-11 ) Al-Quran.

The belief on the Signs near the Day of Judgment for a Muslim is:

Sayings of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w):

1. Bani Israel were been divided in 72 sects and my Ummah will be divided in 73 sects. All the sects will go in Hell except one. Companions (r.a) asked: Oh Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w)!, which sect will be on the right path?. Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w) said: The one who follows My (Sunnah) and My Companion's (Sunnah). (Mishkawt)

2. There will appear, at the end of time, people who will be called Rafdhi [Shia (Rejecters)], they will reject the Islam. (Musnad Ahmed)

3. There will be, at the end of the time, people who are called Rafdhi (Shia), they will reject the Islam and spit it out. Thus, Kill Them for they are polytheist. (Majma-u-Zawaid)

Sayings of Hazrat Ali Murtaza (r.a):

1. With regard to me, two categories of people will be ruined, namely he who loves me too much and the love takes him away from rightfulness, and he who hates me too much and the hatred takes him away from rightfulness. The best man with regard to me is he who is on the middle course. So be with him and be with the great majority (of Muslims) because Allah's hand (of protection) is on keeping unity. (Nahj-ul-Balagah)

2. The best one after the Messenger of ALLAH (s.a.w.w) is Abu Bakr. And the best one after Abu Bakr is Umar." He also whipped those who claimed that he is better than Abu Bakr and Umar. (Ibn-e-Majah)

So it is the duty of all Muslims to be aware of this sign of Qayamat near us. We see this nation is in a minority as told by the Hadith and have not only rejected the Islam but even had cut the roots of the belief of a Muslim. The Jihad against them is the most prior (in peace and in war) to upkeep the religion of ALLAH. The one who fights back against them in any sense is being noted by ALLAH who will give the unlimited reward just not for the defense in the name of Him (s.w.t), Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w), Companions (r.a), Ummahat-ul-Momineen (r.a) and the true Islam (the Islam of the Sunni's) but also for the sacrificing the lives and the utmost blood-shedding. May ALLAH keep away me, you and all Muslim Ummah from this biggest "Shar". Ameen!

Fortune

Fortune

"I believe in ALLAH, in His Angels, His Scriptures, His Prophets, the Day of Judgment, and in the fact that every thing good or bad (in the world) is pre-destined by ALLAH the Exalted, and in the resurrection after death."

The belief on the fortune for a Muslim is:

The Muslims do like members of the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w)'s family. As such, they say it is incumbent upon every Muslim man or woman to love them. However, the Muslims do resent the act of appealing for assistance from the members of the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w)'s Household that is commonly perpetrated by the Shia's Adherents. How can a reasoning person seek assistance in meeting his requirements and obtaining his needs from creatures other than ALLAH Almighty? Yet such a person repeats the following words of ALLAH in his prayer (Salat) at least five times a day.

"Thee we serve, and to Thee we pray for help". ( 1 : 4 ) Al-Quran.

Amazingly, people who seek help from other than ALLAH asking for help with different names, they appeal for help from the aforementioned relatives of the Prophet (s.a.w.w) and different Auliya to assist them obtain their needs, or to help them remove lessen whatever overburdens them. As far as the a Muslim is concerned, when he is in distress, he only call: "O Allah!". He do turn to Him only in his quest for help as he appeal for aid from Him only to remove his agony. He do that with clear perception that supplication to the only One ALLAH is one of the aspects of worship as the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w) prescribed for us. In this respect, supplication to other than ALLAH the Omniscient is ipso facto worshipping other than Him. Indeed the Shia's adherents do love excessively members of the Prophetic Household (s.a.w.w), without observing the fact that they are mere humans and not Gods. It should be borne in mind that mankind, can neither inflict anybody with harm nor confer benefit to him whatever their ranks and prestige may be in the sight of ALLAH. For only ALLAH can cause harm or bring benefit to us. Thus invoking ALLAH by mentioning their names, has become a means by which their prayers and supplications are accepted to ALLAH according to their belief. Whereas ALLAH says in the Holy Quran:

"The most beautiful names belong to ALLAH, so call on Him by them…". ( 7 : 180 ) Al-Quran.

Yes, there is a difference. The polytheists in times of adversity used to invoke and supplicate to ALLAH in a bid for rescue. ALLAH says in the Holy Quran:

"Now if they embark on a boat, they call on ALLAH, making their devotion sincerely (and exclusively) to Him. But when He has delivered them safely to (dry) land, behold, they give a share (of their worship to others)!". ( 29 : 65 ) Al-Quran.

"Call on Me, I will answer your (prayer)". ( 40 : 60 ) Al-Quran.

ALLAH Almighty also says:

"… and call upon Him, making your devotion sincere as in His Sight". ( 7 : 29 ) Al-Quran.

It should be borne in mind that nurturing young children and inculcating in their minds the falsely claimed obligation of supplicating to ALLAH confidentially and intimately, through the names of the Imams, Auliya and by abiding by their graves, is without doubt, a notorious way of rearing children. For, to inculcate in them the trend of resorting to humans rather than seeking refuge with ALLAH, makes them grow up with the same ideology which they will easily pass over to their children and grand children alike in the long ran. Perhaps, the child may forget the remembrance of ALLAH for the fact that remembrance of the Imams and Auliya is always inevitably present in his heart and fresh on his tongue, whenever he intends to pray or supplicate to ALLAH the Holy One. What a grave sin! In addition, it is a claim that leads to polytheism [Shirk] and ascribing of partners to ALLAH. Especially when the names of the Imams and Auliya are assumed as the key-factor for acceptance of our prayers and a major prerequisite for getting our invocations answered by ALLAH. This is similar to the unfounded claim of the polytheists who used to say that their idols drew them nearer to ALLAH. It is crystal-clear as stated in the Holy Quran that the mighty messengers of ALLAH used to invoke and supplicate to ALLAH, the Exalted in Might, by mentioning His name and attributes that confirm His Unity. ALLAH says in the Holy Quran regarding Prophet Yunus (a.s):

"… but he cried through the depths of darkness: "There is no ALLAH but Thou: Glory to Thee: I was indeed wrong". ( 21 : 87 ) Al-Quran.

Another proof to the afore mentioned fact are the words of repentance that ALLAH revealed to Prophet Adam (a.s): They said:

"Our Lord! We have wronged our own souls: if thou forgive us not and bestow not upon us Thy Mercy, we shall certainly be lost". ( 7 : 23 ) Al-Quran.

Hadith

Hadith

"I believe in ALLAH, in His Angels, His Scriptures, His Prophets, the Day of Judgment, and in the fact that every thing good or bad (in the world) is pre-destined by ALLAH the Exalted, and in the resurrection after death."

The belief on the Hadith, sayings of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w) for a Muslim is:

The term "Hadith" (or even just Hadith sometimes) refers to a number of historical books which contain reports of the sayings, actions and example of the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w), by which He showed His followers how to put the teachings of the Holy Quran into practice. Hadith just means a saying. When used as a term in the religion of Islam, a Hadith means a report of what the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w) said or did on a certain occasion. In English books on Islam, the word "tradition" is also used to denote a Hadith. The word Hadith is also applied to the books containing these reports. The six most famous works of Hadith popularly known as "Saha-e-Sattah" are: "Bukhari", "Muslim", "Tirimzi", "Abu Dawood", "Nisai" and "Masnad Ahmed". Each of these is named after the person who compiled it, i.e., Bukhari, Muslim, Tirimzi, Abu Dawood, Nisai and Ahmed bin Hambal. The word "Sahih" in these titles refers to the fact that the compilers of these books sifted the genuine reports about the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w) from unfounded and unreliable stories, so far as they could, and included only those which were trust-worthy. These books compiled are being termed in sense of authenticated ones. There were many teachings of the Holy Quran which the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w) had to illustrate by His practice and actions (such as how to perform the Salat). His followers learnt from and copied what He did, and then by Their example taught the next generation how to carry out these practices. Apart from this practical side, the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w)'s sayings on various matters, and details of what He did on various occasions, were also remembered by those who saw and heard Him. They then related all these things to other people. But, unlike the Holy Quran, these details were usually not written down. So these traditions were passed down from one generation to the next by practical example (as in the case of prayer) and by word of mouth. About 150 years after the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w)'s death, some scholars decided to try to trace all these traditions back to Him, by following the chain of people who had passed down each report from the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w)'s time to the then present time. From their great research, they compiled the books of Hadith that we now have. They investigated each and every report of a saying or action of the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w) to check whether the names of all the persons involved in passing it down from his time were known. They also investigated the lives and character of all these people to find out if they could have had the opportunity of hearing and passing down the saying from one to another, and if they were trustworthy and had good memories. Bukhari, Muslim and Tirimzi were more strict than other compilers in making these checks before accepting a report as being genuine. This is why these books are regarded as the most reliable Hadith collections, Bukhari is being ranked highest of all books for the Muslims after the Holy Quran. The people who passed on these reports by word of mouth before they were compiled made mistakes in some cases. There are also some reported sayings written down in books of Hadith which the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w) may not have ever said at all. However, the bulk of the reports, especially those contained in Saha-e-Sattah (especially Bukhari and Muslim) are genuine. The teachings which the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w) illustrated by His example (such as how to perform the prayers) were copied by such a large number of people that there cannot be any doubt at all about their genuineness. Similarly, many of the sayings were memorized and passed down by a number of Companions (r.a) in each case, not by just one, and became well-known among the Muslims from the beginning. These books contains especially the part relating to the observance of religion and to practical life. It must always be remembered, however, that Hadith is meant to be a further explanation of the teachings of the Holy Quran. It is the duty of every Muslim that any report in Hadith books which appears to go against the Holy Quran must be examined carefully and must be enquired by specialized Scholars (Alims) to see if it can be given a meaning not contradicting the Holy Book, and if not, it must be rejected. For the Muslims, it is the second source of revealed law, complementary to the Noble Quran. It is not permissible to contradict or reject the rulings and directives contained in those Hadiths (Ahadees) which are reliably attributed to the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w). The methodology applied in determining the authenticity of these traditions utilizes a set of stringent rules agreed upon by the scholars who specialize in this field, and involves detailed analysis of the chain of transmitters of any given tradition. No distinction is made between male and female narrators; judgment is made solely on the basis of individual trustworthiness and technical ability in relating traditions, and every narrator's history is recorded. No tradition is accepted from a known liar, or from one whose morals or scholarly ability were not corroborated, or from anyone, merely on the basis of his family connection or lineage. The compilation of the Prophetic Traditions is taken to be a sacred Trust, the fulfillment of which overrides all other considerations.

Noble Mothers of Ummah

The Noble Mothers (r.a)

"I believe in ALLAH, in His Angels, His Scriptures, His Prophets, the Day of Judgment, and in the fact that every thing good or bad (in the world) is pre-destined by ALLAH the Exalted, and in the resurrection after death."

"Men have authority over women, for that ALLAH has exalted one over the other, and for that they expend of their wealth; so the righteous women are obedient and guard the unseen as ALLAH has guarded. And those whose rebellion you fear, admonish them and leave them alone in the beds, and beat them; then if they obey you, do not seek a way against them; ALLAH is surely High, Great". ( 4 : 34 ) Al-Quran.

"The Prophet is closer to the Believers than their selves, and his wives are their mothers; and the blood relations are closer to one another in the Book of ALLAH than the Believers and the Emigrants, except that you should act towards your friends desirably; this is inscribed in the Book". ( 33 : 6 ) Al-Quran.

The Wives (r.a) of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w) are the mothers of Muslims (Ummahat-ul-Momineen). They used to educate Muslims religious education and used to correct them on their believes. The Holy Quran describes that the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w)'s Wives responsibilities and duties are totally different from those of all other women. All Muslims must have to pay respect and homage to them. They set an example of high character and many companions of the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w) used to approach them to get their problems solved and clarified from them. They are the packers of the nobility.

Note: Wives of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w) popularly known as "Ummahat-ul-Momineen" are part of our Iman. Minor to minor misbehavior and doubt in their personality may cause a Muslim to suffer with a word of Kafir.

Sahabah


Sahabah-e-Karaam Companions (r.a)


"I believe in ALLAH, in His Angels, His Scriptures, His Prophets, the Day of Judgment, and in the fact that every thing good or bad (in the world) is pre-destined by ALLAH the Exalted, and in the resurrection after death."

"Muhammad is a Messenger of ALLAH, and those who are with him are hard against the unbelievers and merciful among themselves, thou seest them bowing, prostrating, seeking bounty and pleasure of ALLAH, their mark is on their faces, being the trace of prostration. That is their likeness in the Torah and their likeness in the Gospel, as a seed that puts forth its shoot, then strengthens it, then it becomes stout, then it rises straight on its stalk, pleasing the sowers that, through them, He may enrage the unbelievers, ALLAH promises those, who believe and who, out of them, do righteous deeds, forgiveness and a big wage". ( 29 : 48 ) Al-Quran.

Belief of a Muslim on the Companions (r.a) of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w) is:

It is unanimously agreed that the noble Companions (r.a) deserve our utmost respect, and are absolutely trustworthy. As for the discord which occurred among them, it is to be considered as the consequence of the sincere exercise of personal conviction and opinion. The discord was resolved and is a thing of the past. It is not permissible for us to hold, on the basis of past differences among the Companions (r.a), grudges and ill will which continue for generations. The Companions (r.a) are those whom ALLAH has described in the best of terms. He has praised them upon many occasions. It is not lawful for anyone to make any accusation against them or cast suspicion upon them, and there is no benefit to be derived there from.

"And those who believed and emigrated and struggled in the way of ALLAH, and those who gave shelter and helped, they are the Believers in truth; for them shall be forgiveness and generous provision". ( 8 : 74 ) Al-Quran.

"And the Foremost, the First among the Emigrants and the Helpers, and those who followed them in a good way, ALLAH is pleased with them and they are pleased with Him, and He has prepared for them gardens underneath which rivers flow, to dwell therein forever and ever; that is the mighty triumph". ( 9 : 100 ) Al-Quran.

"It is for the poor emigrants, who were expelled from their homes and their possessions, seeking bounty and good pleasure from ALLAH, and helping ALLAH and His Messenger; they are the truthful ones. And those who were settled in the city and in Faith before them, love those who emigrated towards them, and they do not find any need in their breasts for what has been given to them, and prefer them above themselves, though poverty be their lot; and whoso is saved from the greed of his soul those are the ones who will prosper". ( 59 : 8-9 ) Al-Quran.

Muslims love them and recite them as "radhiALLAHu anhu / anha / anhum (may ALLAH be pleased with them) after their names as appropriate. Out of thousands of Companions (r.a), Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w) proposed 10 Companions (r.a) for the promise of the Heaven in their lives. Those are as follows:

Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddiq (r.a), Hazrat Umar Farooq (r.a), Hazrat Usman Ghani (r.a), Hazrat Ali Murtaza (r.a), Hazrat Talha (r.a), Hazrat Zubair (r.a), Hazrat Saad (r.a), Hazrat Saeed (r.a), Hazrat Abdul Rehman (r.a) and Hazrat Abu Ubaidah (r.a).

Sayings of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w) : My Companions are like the stars, whom you may follow, will get the right path. (Mishkawt)

Note: Companions (r.a) popularly known as Sahabah-e-Karaam (r.a), are the part of our faith of Islam. Minor to minor negligence or misbehavior in their name and acts (Sunnah), may cause a Muslim to suffer the word of Kafir.
