“Do not hurt any creature.”

February 13, 2013 Leave a comment

Do not hurt any creature, specially a human being, and most importantly, a Muslim, by any word or action of yours. Just as doing every act for the sake of Allah is the very essence of true faith, avoidance of causing hurt to anyone is the gist of Allah’s commands. Whichever principle of the Shari’ah you might ponder over, you will find this factor common in some form or the other: the Hudud punishments, the rules regarding divorce, the principles of commercial transactions and social intercourse. This is a very pervasive principle, so much so that it extends even to very minute matters. Hence people have been told not to conceal anyone else’s objects even by way of a practical joke, or even point a weapon at anyone, nor to occupy the seat of someone who has gone away for a short while, nor to jump over other people’s heads to find a place in the front rows of a congregation; nor to peep into other people’s homes, nor pry into the affairs of others, nor read someone else’s mail, nor get up at night in a way that would disturb others. Indeed, the principle is of such wide-ranging application that it is simply not possible to enumerate all such instances. Simply stated, make this principle your guiding light and the scale of all moral judgment: that you shall not cause any injury to anyone by your words or deeds. In dealing with others this should be your guiding principle. Read more…

Every Muslim has Nūr ul Imān (Light of Faith)!

October 19, 2011 Leave a comment

Maulāna Ashraf ῾Ali Thānvi rehmatullāhi ῾alayh replied to a questioner that every Muslim has Nūr ul Imān (Light of Faith) in him, whether its effects are apparent or not.

A similitude of this is like a handsome person who blackens his beautiful face and thus conceals his beauty. Then as soon as he washes his face with soap, the beauty shines like the full moon. Similarly, the Nūr ul Imān of most of Muslims has been concealed due to increase in disobedience (of Allāh’s commandments), but inshā’allāh as soon as they repent and increase in their Istighfār, their hearts will shine with Nūr.

Six hours to repent

April 2, 2011 Leave a comment

The hadeeth narrated by Abu Umaamah (RA):

– إن صاحب الشمال ليرفع القلم ست ساعات عن العبد المسلم المخطىء ، فإن ندم و استغفر الله منها ألقاها ، وإلا كتبت واحدة

The scribe on the left side raises his pen for six hours from the Muslim slave who sins. If he is remorseful and seeks Allah’s forgiveness he does not record the sin, if he does not then he records it as a single sin.

Authenticated in Sahih Al-Jami al-Sagheer #2097
