Dangers of the Internet in the Home

أعوذ بالله من الشيطان الرجيم
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

The purpose of this article is to make us aware of the dangers that lurk behind the use of the Internet [especially for children] in the home. As opposed to sticking our heads in the ground like ostriches, it is time we had an honest assessment of the facts and figures associated with the use of the Internet and it being a tool for Shaytan.

Colic and Its Symptoms in Babies

Colic is one of the most common problems in babies. In fact, it is so common that this is the kind of thing that you will be prepared for even before it occurs being a major topic in all baby books in your bookshelf.
Colic begins as early as two to three weeks and reaches its peak when the baby is about two months old. After which, symptoms and episodes will slowly die down and at fourth month, there will be no more episodes.
Until now, medical experts cannot find what exactly causes colic to occur. It just happens to babies without any real or specific reason. However, there are a host of possible causes that may influence or worsen a colic episode. Here are some of them.

தொழுகையின் சிறப்பினைப் பற்றி சொல்ல தொழுகையின் அருமையினை விளங்க வையுங்கள்

  உங்களுக்கு தொழ வைக்கும்  முன் நீங்கள் தொழுது கொள்ளுங்கள் என்பதனை பல இடங்களில் மற்றும் பள்ளிவாசல்களிலும் பார்க்கின்றோம் . இதன் பொருள் உங்களுக்கு இறப்பு(ஜனாஸா தொழுகை) தொழுகை வைப்பதற்கு முன் இறைவனை தொழ ஆரம்பித்து விடுங்கள்.இது நல்ல அறிவுரையாக இருந்தாலும் மனிதனை அச்சமூட்டி எச்சரிக்கை  செய்து தொழ வைக்க முயலும் செயலாக அமைந்து விடுகின்றது. இதைவிட தொழுகையின் அருமையினையும் அதனால் அடையக் கூடிய நற்பயன்களயும்   மக்களிடம் எடுத்துச் சொல்பது சிறப்பாக இருக்கும் . 

  மனதை வருடி விடுங்கள். இக்கால மக்கள்   (சிலர்) மனதில்  அனைத்து வகை இன்ப துன்பங்களைக் கண்டு அலுத்துப் போய் சுவனத்தின் மாண்பினையும் நரகத்தின் வேதனைப் பற்றியும் சிந்திக்க மனமில்லாதவர்களாய் மாறிவருகின்றனர்.
தொழுகை
யின் சிறப்பினைப்  பற்றி சொல்ல  எதனையோ ஹதீஸ்களும் குரான் ஆயத்துகளும் இருக்கிறது. குடிகாரனை வெறுக்காதீர்கள் குடிப்பதை தடுக்க வழி சொல்லுங்கள் . குடிப்பவனும் தொழுகையை நாடிவிட்டால் குடிப் பழக்கம் அவனை விட்டு ஓடிவிடும் .அவரையும் அன்போடு தொழ அழைத்துச் செல்லுங்கள். இக்கால குந்தைகளுக்கு அடித்து பாடம் சொல்லித் தருவதில்லை மாறாக கல்வி மேல் ஆர்வம் உண்டாக்கி பயிற்சி கொடுத்து வளர்கின்றார்கள். 
ஆர்வம் உண்டாக்கி தொழுகையின் அருமையினை விளங்க வையுங்கள்.
 யார் தூக்கத்தினாலோ அல்லது மறதியினாலோ (தொழுகையின் நேரம் முடியும் வரை அத்தொழுகையை தொழவில்லையோ) அவர் ஞாபகம் வந்ததும் (அல்லது விழித்ததும்) அதை தொழுது கொள்ளட்டும் என நபி (ஸல்) அவர்கள் கூறினார்கள்.

ஏழை மக்கள் சிலர் நபி(ஸல்) அவர்களிடம் வந்து 'பொருளாதாரச் செல்வம் பெற்றவர்கள் உயர்வான பதவிகளையும் நிலையான பாக்கியத்தையும் பெற்றுக் கொள்கிறார்கள். நாங்கள் தொழுவது போன்றே அவர்களும் தொழுகிறார்கள். மேலும் நாங்கள் நோன்பு வைப்பது போன்றே அவர்களும் நோன்பு நோற்கின்றனர். ஆயினும் அவர்களுக்குப் பொருளாதாரச் சிறப்பு இருப்பதனால் தங்கள் பொருளாதாரத்தின் மூலம் ஹஜ் செய்கின்றனர்;உம்ராச் செய்கின்றனர்; அறப்போரிடுகின்றனர்; தர்மமும் செய்கின்றனர். (ஏழைகளாகிய நாங்கள் இவற்றைச் செய்ய முடிவதில்லை)' என்று முறையிட்டனர்.
அதற்கு நபி(ஸல்) அவர்கள் 'நான் உங்களுக்கு ஒரு காரியத்தைக் கற்றுத் தருகிறேன். அதை நீங்கள் செய்து வந்தால் உங்களை முந்திவிட்டவர்களை நீங்களும் பிடித்து விடுவீர்கள். உங்களுக்குப் பிந்தி வருபவர்கள் உங்களைப் பிடிக்க இயலாது. நீங்கள் எந்த மக்களுடன் வாழ்கிறீர்களோ அவர்களும அந்தக் காரியத்தைச் செய்தால் தவிர அவர்களில் நீங்கள் மிகச் சிறந்தவராவீர்கள். (அந்த காரியமாவது) ஒவ்வொரு தொழுகைக்குப் பின்பும் 33முறை இறைவனைத் துதியுங்கள்; 33 முறை இறைவனைப் புகழுங்கள்; 33 முறை இறைவனைப் பெருமைப படுத்துங்கள்' என்று கூறினார்கள். நாங்கள் இது விஷயத்தில் பலவாறாகக் கூறிக் கொண்டோம். சிலர் ஸுப்ஹானல்லாஹ் 33 முறையும், அல்ஹம்துலில்லாஹ் 33 முறையும் அல்லாஹு அக்பர் 33 முறையும் கூறலானோம். நான் நபி(ஸல்) அவர்களிடம் சென்று இது பற்றிக் கேட்டேன். அதற்கு நபி(ஸல்) அவர்கள் 'ஸுப்ஹானல்லாஹி வல் ஹம்து லில்லாஹி வல்லாஹு அக்பர்" என்று 33 முறை கூறுங்கள். இதனால் ஒவ்வொரு வார்த்தையையும் 33 முறை கூறினார்கள் என அமையும்'. என்று விளக்கம் தந்தார்கள்.

Hercules questions about Prophet Mohammed (pbuh)

Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam, was a country without any central authority. It was a country far from the civilized nations of those days. At the time Prophet Mohammed Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam was spreading Islam; asking people to turn away from worshipping idols to worshipping Allah, the Almighty, the All-Knower, and the Master. The Prophet Mohammed Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam sent letters of invitation to Kings and Rulers of various countries in the world, inviting them to embrace Islam. Many of the letters were met with a favorable response whilst others were rejected.

In many cases, the messengers of the Prophet Mohammed Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam were badly treated and abused. But the Prophet Mohammed Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam was not worried by these setbacks. He was inviting people to the right path and a few setbacks could not deter him from propagating Islam.

Abu Sufyan a leader of the tribe of Quraish and the arch enemy of the Prophet Mohammed Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam was in Constantinople on a business trip, when the Prophet Mohammed's Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam(pbuh) letter of invitation reached Hercules, the Byzantine emperor of Eastern Roman Empire. Hercules, at the time was in his court at Constantinople celebrating his victory over the Persians.

Hercules read the letter through an interpreter and then asked the people in his court, to find out if there was someone in the city, who knew the Prophet Mohammed (pbuh). Abu Sufyan with his companions was brought into the court.

The emperor Hercules asked Abu Sufyan Radi Allahu anhu, "What kind of family does Mohammed Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam belong to?"
"Noble", replied Abu Sufyan Radi Allahu anhu.

Revelation Order of the Qur'an

Revelation Order of the Qur'an


The Qur'an was sometimes revealed to respond to various events and incidents. Sometimes it was revealed to support the Prophet (saws) who was faced with many questions, whether by Muslims or non-Muslims, and hardships. Other times was revealed for legislation and for putting rules to govern the social, economical, and political life of Muslims.
The first verses to be revealed, according to the most correct opinion of scholars, are the first five verses of Surat Al-`Alaq, which happens to be Chapter 96 of the 114 chapters of the Qur'an.

Order of Verses
Muslim scholars agree that the order of the verses in every chapter was done or commanded by the Prophet (saws) himself following the commands of Almighty Allah.
The Prophet (saws) once told his Companions after he had received a certain revelation that the arch-angel Gabriel had specified for him the particular order of verses (Ahmad).
There are also many incidents narrated in the books of Sunnah regarding the Prophet's (saws) recitation during prayer. The Companions used to pray every day behind the Prophet (saws) and he used to recite the Qur'an in the order given to him by Allah, and they used to learn and memorize from his recitation.
There have never been any incident in which any of the Companions reciting in any order that violated the order of the verses showed to us by the Prophet (saws).

Religious Tolerance in Muslim History

By Idris Tawfiq
Religious intolerance has become too much a part of modern life. It is a fact of life, though, that good people, of whatever faith, do not poke fun or try to insult one another’s religion.
On the contrary, we find that real people of faith are keen to get to know each other better and to learn from each other. Goodness, wherever it is to be found, comes from God. Where else would it come from?
We should never feel threatened by goodness. It is only a threat to us when our own faith is weak or lukewarm and it shows up our own shortcomings.
Since the very beginning, Islam has taught respect for the beliefs of others. We see it in the teaching and the practice of Islam right through history. Indeed, it is the sign of a Muslim that he or she respects the religion of others, and their Books and their Prophets. Those who teach otherwise, Muslim or not, are distorting the message of Islam.
Muslims are no more or less perfect than anyone else. They believe, though, that the message they follow is a perfect message and is meant for the whole of mankind. Islam is perfect and it has existed since the beginning of time.
Whilst some Muslims, throughout history, have not always lived up to the beauty of its message, Islam itself has nothing whatever to be ashamed of.
It is an absolute basic belief of Islam, though, that people of other religions should be free to believe whatever they wish. In the Quran, which Muslims believe to be the word of God, you can read what means,
[Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from error: Whoever rejects Satan and believes in Allah hath grasped the most trustworthy handle, that never breaks, and Allah heareth and knoweth all things.] (Al-Baqarah 2:256)
In another place, God says what means,
[Wilt thou (Muhammad) then compel mankind, against their will, to believe?] (Yunus 10:99)
The Example of Madinah
Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) lived side by side with Jews and polytheists. In Madinah, he made treaties with both, guaranteeing their freedom of religion and joining with them in a pact to defend the city.
It was not that they were Jews or polytheists that made the Muslims eventually fight them, but because they broke the terms of the treaty and sided with the enemy which was attacking the city.
It is, in fact, one of the hallmarks of the way Prophet Muhammad dealt with others, believers and non-believers, that he would listen very carefully to what they had to say, and he would ask, “Have you finished?” before giving an answer.
He set the bench mark very high by showing Muslims that if they engage in dialogue, they must listen with great respect.

Hadeeth - According to the reliability and memory of the reporters

Suhaib Hasan

The final verdict on a hadith, i.e. sahih (sound), hasan (good), da'if (weak) or maudu' (fabricated, forged), depends critically on this factor.


Among the early traditionists, mostly of the first two centuries, ahadith were classified into two categories only: sahih and da'if; al- Tirmidhi was to be the first to distinguish hasan from da'if. This is why traditionists and jurists such as Ahmad, who seemed to argue on the basis of da'if ahadith sometimes, were in fact basing their argument on the ahadith which were later to be known as hasan.65


We now examine in more detail these four important classes of ahadith.

France
Paris's founders were probably the Gauls, who built a small settlement on the left bank of the Seine. The Romans reached here at an early stage, led by Julius Caesar. Paris became a true capital in the year 987 when Ugo Capote founded a new dynasty. Paris began to develop not only as an urban center, but also from the cultural point of view. Paris has retained its place in the history of mankind and its culture.

The Persian Wedding Ceremony, Iranian

n

21 Dec

For Iranians marriage is considered to be an event, which must be celebrated not quietly but with glory and distinction. It is the most conspicuous of all the rituals and must be celebrated in the presence of an assembly, which can bear witness to the event.
In the ancient times, the musicians playing at marriage gatherings used drums to announce the marriage to the people of the town or village. The group that gathered for the marriage was called the assembly “Anjoman” for the queenly bride.
Traditionally, both the bride and the bridegroom would dress in white with wreaths of flower on their necks, something similar to the Hawaiian Lei. These wreaths of flower are still worn in modern wedding ceremonies in Pakistan (which used to be part of the great Persian Empire), but it is eliminated from the Iranian wedding ceremony. The color white is a symbol of purity, innocence and faithfulness. Today most modern Iranian couples follow the western dress code and style.
There are two stages to a Persian marriage. Most often both take place on the same day, but occasionally there could be some time between the two. The first is called “Aghd”, the legal process of getting married, when both the bride and bridegroom and their guardians sign a marriage contract. The second stage is “Jashn-e Aroosi”, the actual feasts and the celebrations, which traditionally lasted from 3 to 7 days.
The ceremony takes place in a specially decorated room with flowers and a beautiful and elaborately decorated spread on the floor called “Sofreh-ye Aghd”. Traditionally Sofreh-ye Aghd is set on the floor facing east, the direction of sunrise (light). Consequently when bride and bridegroom are seated at the head of Sofreh-ye Aghd they will be facing “The Light”.
By custom Aghd would normally take place at bride’s parents/guardians home. The arrival of the guests, who are to be witnesses to the marriage of the couple, initiates the wedding ceremony. Traditionally the couples’ guardians and other elder close family members are present in the room to greet the guests and guide them to their seats. After all the guests are seated the bridegroom is the first to take his seat in the room at the head of Sofreh-ye Aghd. The bride comes afterwards and joins the bridegroom at the head of Sofreh-ye Aghd. The bridegroom always sits on the right hand side of the bride. In Zoroastrian culture the right side designates a place of respect.
The spread that is used on the floor as the backdrop for Sofreh-ye Aghd was traditionally passed from mother to daughter (or occasionally son). The spread is made of a luxurious fabric such as “Termeh” (Cashmere: A rich gold embroidered fabric originally made in Cashmere from the soft wool found beneath the hair of the goats of Cashmere, Tibet, and the Himalayas), “Atlas” (Gold embroidered satin) or “Abrisham” (Silk).
On Sofreh-ye Aghd, the following items are placed:
* Mirror (of fate) “Aayeneh-ye Bakht” and two Candelabras (representing the bride and groom and brightness in their future) one on either side of the mirror. The mirror and two candelabras are symbols of light and fire, two very important elements in the Zoroastrian culture. When the bride enters the room she has her veil covering her face. Once the bride sits beside the bridegroom she removes her veil and the first thing that the bridegroom sees in the mirror should be the reflection of his wife-to-be.
* A tray of seven multi-colored herbs and spices “Sini-ye Aatel-O-Baatel” to guard the couple and their lives together against the evil eye, witchcraft and to drive away evil spirits. This tray consists of seven elements in seven colors:
1. Poppy Seeds “Khash-Khaash” (to break spells and witchcraft)
2. Wild Rice “Berenj”
3. Angelica “Sabzi Khoshk”
4. Salt “Namak” (to blind the evil eye)
5. Nigella Seeds “Raziyaneh”
6. Black Tea “Chaay”
7. Frankincense “Kondor” (to burn the evil spirits)
* A specially baked and decorated flatbread “Noon-e Sangak” with blessing “Mobaarak-Baad” written in calligraphy on it. The writing is usually with either saffron “Zaffaron”, cinnamon, Nigella seeds, or glitters. This symbolizes prosperity for the feasts and for the couple’s life thereafter. A separate platter of this flat bread, feta cheese and fresh herbs are also present to be shared with the guests after the ceremony, to bring the new couple happiness and prosperity.
* A basket of decorated eggs and a basket of decorated almonds, walnuts and hazelnuts in the shell to symbolize fertility.
* A basket of pomegranates and/or apples for a joyous future. Pomegranates are considered heavenly fruits and apples symbolize the divine creation of mankind.
* A cup of rose water extracted from special Persian roses “Gol-e Mohammadi” to perfume the air.
* A bowl made out of crystallized sugar “Kaas-e Nabaat/Shaakh-e Nabaat” to sweeten life for the newly wed.
* A brazier “Manghal” holding burning coals sprinkled with wild rue “Espand” a popular incense. Wild rue is used in many Zoroastrian ceremonies, rituals and purification rites. It is believed to keep the evil eye away and bring on plenty of health.
* A bowl of gold coins representing wealth and prosperity.
* A scarf or shawl made out of silk or any other fine fabric to be held over the bride and bridegroom’s head throughout the ceremony by various happily married female relatives (mostly bride’s close family members).
* Two sugar cones “Kalleh Ghand” made out of hardened sugar to be used during the ceremony. These sugar cones are grinded together above the bride and bridegroom’s head (over the scarf held above their heads) throughout the ceremony to shower them in sugar (symbolizing sweetness and happiness).
* A cup of honey to sweeten life. Immediately after the couple is married they each should dip one pinky finger in the cup of honey and feed it to the other one.
* A needle and seven strands of colored thread to figuratively sew up the mother-in-law’s lips from speaking unpleasant words to the bride! The shawl that is held above the couple’s head throughout the ceremony is sewed in one corner by the needle and threads.
* A copy of Koran “Ghoraan-e Majid” (the Moslem’s holy book) opened in the middle and placed on the spread. This symbolizes God’s blessing for the couple. Traditionally “Avesta” the ancient Zoroastrian holy book was present during the ceremony and readings were made from it. Eventually Koran replaced Avesta after Iran became a Moslem nation.
* A prayer carpet/kit “Jaa-Namaaz” spread open in the center of Sofreh-ye Aghd to remind the couple of importance of prayer both at blissful times and times of hardship. This prayer kit includes a small rug “Sajjaadeh” to be spread on the floor at the time of prayer, a small cube of molded clay with prayers written on it “Mohr” and a strand of prayer beads “Tasbih”.
* An assortment of sweets and pastries to be shared with the guests after the ceremony. The assortment usually includes: Sugar coated almond strips “Noghl”, Baklava (a sweet flaky Persian pastry “Baaghlavaa”), Mulberry-almond paste made in the shape of mulberries “Tout”, Rice-flour cookies “Noon-Berenji”, Chickpea-flour cookies “Noon-Nokhodchi”, Almond-flour cookies “Noon-Baadoomi”, and Honey roasted almonds “Sohaan A’sali”.

“Seek knowledge, because seeking it for the sake of Allah is a worship. And knowing it makes you more God-fearing; and searching for it is jihad, teaching it to those who do not know is charity, reviewing and learning it more is like tasbeeh. Through knowledge Allah will be known and worshipped. With the knowledge Allah will elevate people and make them leaders and imams, who will in turn guide other people.”

Read an excerpt from his passionate appeal:
Wikipedia is something special. It is like a library or a public park. It is like a temple for the mind. It is a place we can all go to think, to learn, to share our knowledge with others.
When I founded Wikipedia, I could have made it into a for-profit company with advertising banners, but I decided to do something different.
We donate regularly to wikipedia. I appeal you to do so as well. Even if it is just Rs.100. per month. You can make your donation by clicking here.

Virtue of fasting the first ten days of Muharram

All perfect praise be to Allaah, the Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His Slave and Messenger.
It was narrated on the authority of Abu Hurayrah  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  him that the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) said: "The best fasting after Ramadhaan is the month of Muharram." [Muslim, An-Nasaa’i, Abu Daawood and others] An-Nawawi  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him said that this Hadeeth is a direct indication that Muharram is the best month for fasting (after Ramadhaan).
The best days of the month of Muharram are the first ten days. Al-Mardaawi  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him said in Al-Insaaf, "The best days of Al-Muharram are the tenth then the ninth then the first ten days of it.”
Ibn Rajab  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him said in Lataa’if Al-Ma‘aarif, "The best days of Muharram are the first ten days." He quoted Abu ‘Uthmaan An-Nahdi as saying, “They (the people) would glorify three tens: the last ten days of Ramadhaan, the first ten days of Thul-Hijjah and the first ten days of Muharram”.
However, there is not any authentic Hadeeth regarding the virtue of fasting the first ten days of Muharram altogether.
Allaah Knows best.
