Respect people’s feelings

Dr. Bilal Philips, founder of IOU, shares his story on finding Islam

Dr Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips is a Jamaican Canadian Islamic Scholar who converted to Islam in the early seventies after journeying politically and intellectually from Christianity to Communism. Shortly after his reversion to Islam, he embarked on a spiritual academic journey to the other side of the world seeking Islamic knowledge. This journey took him to Saudi Arabia where he completed a BA in Islamic studies in Madeenah, and an MA in Islamic Theology in Riyadh, then to the University of Wales, UK, where he completed a PhD in Islamic Theology in the early nineties.

After graduation from Madeenah, Dr Bilal became a teacher of Islamic studies for 10 years in an Islamic High School, Manaret Riyadh, and a lecturer of Arabic and Islamic studies in the American University in Dubai, UAE, for another 10 years. During his 10 years in the UAE, he founded and taught at the Islamic Information Center in Dubai, and during his subsequent 7 years in Qatar he has been an Islamic consultant and lecturer for the Islamic Information wing of Sh. Eed Charity.

Never hide any knowledge for which you will be rewarded with goodness and auspiciousness.

"One day, Death encountered a man and told him:
- Today's your last day.
The man replied:
- But I am not ready!
Death said:
- Your name is at the top of my to-do list for today.
The man said:
- Alright then… before you take me along, let's sit together and have one last cup of coffee.
Death said:
- Of course.
The man offered a cup of coffee to Death; the coffee was laced with some sleeping pills...
Death drank the coffee and soon it was fast asleep...
The man took Death's to-do list, wiped his name from the top and placed it at the bottom of the page.
When Death woke up, it said:
- You've treated me so kindly and with full of love today. I would like to reciprocate you by starting my today's work from the names at the bottom of my list."

The Tourism of My Nation

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The tourism of my nation is Jihad in the Cause of Allah.” [Abu Dawud]

Real tourism, for relaxation and enjoyment with one’s family, is in Jannah. This life is a test that qualifies people for Jannah or Jahannum. Jihad serves the purpose of removing the barriers to the spread of Islam, so that people are free to choose Islam without fear of persecution, and are free to live under the justice and mercy of the Shariah. The Sahabah and generations of Muslims undertook difficult journeys to far away lands, with no guarantee of returning, for this purpose alone.

An Extraordinary Dream (VII)

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “They said to me, ‘Go on! Go on!’ and we went on until we reached a huge tree and I have never seen any tree bigger or more beautiful than it. They said to me, ‘Climb it.’ We climbed it and came to a city built of gold and silver bricks. We came to the door of the city and asked for it to be opened and it was opened for us and we entered it. We were met by men half of whose physique was the most beautiful you have ever seen and the other half was the ugliest you have ever seen. The two said to them, ‘Go and plunge into that river.’ There was a wide river flowing there whose water was pure white. They went and jumped into it and when they returned to us, that evil had left them and they had the most beautiful form.”

“They said to me, ‘This is the Garden of Eden, and that is your place.’ I raised my eyes upwards and there was a castle like a white cloud. They said to me, ‘This is your place.’ I said to them, ‘May Allah bless you, let me enter it.’ They said, ‘No, not now. But you will enter it.’” [Sahih Bukhari]

Respect is expected by everyone
It brings mutual love and peace
It is always given and then taken
Everybody accepts it irrespectively
None can resist a true respectful act
Respecting one another is way of life
Leading a respectful life is everyone's dream
Expecting respect is a Human Right
Unconditional respect offered is eternal
Respecting God's Creations is respecting God
Respect cannot be bought or bargained
It is a spontaneous flow from the heart

True Strength

It was narrated from Abu Hurairah that the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The strong man is not the one who wrestles others; rather, the strong man is the one who controls himself at times of anger.” [The Book of Al-Birr: Sahih Muslim]

That is why we see that people with weak characters suppress their anger when dealing with their superiors but take it out on those weaker than them. A weak man will take his frustrations out on his family, a woman on her children, the rich on the poor. Giving free rein to one’s anger results only in crime against Allah’s creatures. It is natural to feel anger in certain situations but the successful person is he who is able to control the expression of his anger. Not all crimes in Islam are recognized as crimes in secular law, but what matters to a Muslim is how their action is viewed by Allah. Anger is justified when the crime is against Allah and his Messenger, but even then it is best handled with a cool mind.

Hazrat Ali (radi Allahu anhu) said: “A moment of patience in a moment of anger prevents a thousand moments of regret.”

Giant pages of ancient copy of Qur’an on display in Washington

Washington: Two consecutive giant pages of the Holy Qur’an are being displayed at the show “The Art of the Qur’an: Treasures from the Museum of Turkish and Islamic Arts,” which opened Saturday at the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery in Washington.
The sprawling pages, each measuring 5 feet by 7 feet, have rows of calligraphy standing 8 to 9 inches high. They date from about 1400 and have been on long-term loan to the Smithsonian museum. The passage on display is from a chapter explaining that “signs of God and evidence of His goodness are all around,” according to Simon Rettig, assistant curator of Islamic Art.

Rejecting an Excuse

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “When someone offers an excuse to his fellow Muslim and the latter does not accept it, his sin is like the crime of imposing taxes.” [Ibn Majah]

To reject someone’s excuse is basically to accuse him/her of lieing. Before you assume that someone is lieing, think about how sinful you will be if they are not lieing while you accuse them of it. If they are lieing, while you give them the benefit of the doubt, you get your reward for following the Sunnah, while they will have to face their accountability before Allah (subhana wa ta’ala).

With Whom You Love

“A man asked the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam), ‘When will the Hour be established, O Allah’s Messenger?’ The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, ‘What have you prepared for it?’ The man said, ‘I haven’t prepared for it much of Salaat (prayers) or Saum (fasts) or Sadaqa (charity), but I love Allah and His Messenger.” The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, ‘You will be with those whom you love.’” [Sahih Bukhari]

Notice that when the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) was asked when the Day of Judgement would be, he asked in return ‘What have you prepared for it?’ This is because what matters is not when it will happen, but what will happen to you when it happens. Although nobody knows the exact time of its occurrence, it is sure to happen. Each and every person to have ever lived on the face of the earth will be resurrected and present on the occasion. So when it happens is immaterial. Of much greater significance is the preparation we make for it.

Meaningful Words

Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Allah likes sneezing and dislikes yawning, so if someone sneezes and then praises Allah (saying Alhamdu-lillah), then it is obligatory on every Muslim who heard him to say: ‘May Allah be merciful to you (Yar-hamukallah).’ But as regards yawning, it is from Shaitaan, so one must try his best to stop it as much as possible; if one says ‘Haa’ when yawning, Shaitaan will laugh at him.” [Sahih Bukhari]

When a Muslim says “Alhamdu-lillah” upon sneezing, it becomes incumbent on those Muslims who hear him to say “Yar-hamukallah” in response. This is the right of one Muslim on another. Instead of saying “Bless you,” “Gesundheit,” or anything else, it is better to say that which pleases Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) and is a source of Hasanaat for oneself.

This hadith also tells us to suppress our yawns and not make sounds when yawning. Whatever we do in order to obey Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) will be put as a good deed on The Scale on the Day of Judgement when our deeds will be weighed to determine our future.

I Conceal my friend's errors
I Reveal their achievements
I am not a gentleman but
Nothing less than a gentleman

I am a Gift to people around
I am infected with love and affection
I always encourage young ones and
Respect the deserved elders

I live in harmony with Nature
Nurture, adore and safeguard it
I love Peace by all means
But prepared for war too

Don’t Repel People

Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Make things easy for the people, and do not make it difficult for them, and make them calm (with glad tidings) and do not repel them (i.e. make them hate good deeds and run away from Islam).” [Sahih Bukhari]

Al-Azraq bin Qais narrated that they were in the city of Al-Ahwaaz on the bank of a river which had dried up. Abu Barza Al-Aslami (radi Allahu anhu) came riding a horse and started offering Salat while he let his horse loose. The horse ran away, so Abu Barza interrupted his Salat and went after it till he caught it and brought it back. Then he offered his Salat again.

Do Not Throw Yourselves into Destruction

Aslam Abu Imran (radi Allahu anhu) said: “We went on a military expedition from Al-Madinah to Constantinople and Abdur-Rahman bin Khalid bin Al-Waleed was (commander) over the group. The Romans had gathered before the wall of the city (ready to fight). So a man went to attack the enemy. Thereupon, the people said, ‘Stop, stop! None has the right to be worshipped but Allah! He is throwing himself into destruction.’ Thus, Abu Ayyub said, ‘This Ayat was revealed about us, the people of the Ansaar. When Allah granted victory to His Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) and gave Islam dominance, we said: ‘Come, let us stay with our wealth (and properties) and improve it.’ Thereupon, Allah (the Mighty and Sublime) revealed, ‘And spend in the Path of Allah, and do not throw yourselves into destruction.’ [2:195] So, to ‘throw oneself into destruction’ means ‘to stay with our wealth and improve it, and abandon Jihad.’ Abu Ayyub continued to engage himself in Jihad in the Path of Allah (the Mighty and Sublime) until he was buried in Constantinople.” [Sunan Abu Dawud]

Hard Work

Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The Momin dies with his sweat on his brow.” [An-Nasai]

To have sweat on one’s brow indicates labour and hard work. This means that a momin dies working. Our concepts have gotten messed up. We think that the place of recompense is this world; that once you reach a certain age you should be living in luxury, if not all your life. But where in the Quran does Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) say that a luxurious life (eeshatin raadhia) is supposed to happen anytime on earth? All of Allah’s promises of never-ending ease, of comfort to your heart’s content, unblemished happiness, freedom and plenitude, are regarding Jannah. This life is our qualifying exam to get there. As a sensible person in the middle of an exam does not say, “I’m tired of writing,” and retire from the exam, Muslims also need to realize that death is the only time of retirement for him/her.

Genuinely Thank if You Desire More

Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “O company of women give alms, and be frequent in asking Allah for pardon, for verily I see you mostly to be people of the Fire.” The women asked, “And what is in us that we are mostly people of the Fire?” Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “You are given much to cursing, and you are thankless to your husbands.” [Sahih Muslim]

It is no small favour to be spared from having to go out in scorching heat or chilling snow everyday to put food on the table. So women should first be thankful to Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) that He has arranged for their needs to be taken care of while they remain in the safety and comfort of their homes. Secondly, their gratitude should be directed towards their husbands whom Allah has made responsible for taking care of their needs. Saved from the extremes of weather and the jostling in public transportation, saved from unsolicited looks and groping hands, saved from having to abandon her babies to day care and smother her maternal instinct; should she not then overlook the shortcomings in her husband and be grateful to him instead?

Rejected Actions

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Whoever does an action that we have not commanded shall have that action rejected.” [Sahih Muslim]

Abdullah ibn Abbas (radi Allahu anhu) narrated: “We would come with Abdullah ibn Masud to the Masjid. One day Abu Musa al-Ashari came, looking worried, and asked whether Abu Abdur-Rehman (Ibn Masud) had come out. We said ‘No,’ so he also sat waiting. When Ibn Masud came out Abu Musa said, ‘Just now I saw an innovation but it looks good in seeing.’ Ibn Masud said, ‘What did you see?’ Abu Musa said, ‘I saw a group sitting in a circle waiting for us. They had pebbles in their hands. In every circle there was a man who said, ‘Say Takbeer one hundred times’ so they said Takbeer (Allahu Akbar) one hundred times. Then he said, ‘Say Tahleel one hundred times’ so they said Tahleel (Alhamdulillah) one hundred times, and likewise they said Tasbeeh (SubhanAllah) one hundred times.’ Ibn Masud said, ‘Then what did you say?’ Abu Musa said, ‘I did not say anything and I waited for you.’”

Prayer for Fulfillment of a Need

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “When someone seeks fulfillment of a need from Allah or man, he should first carefully perform ablution, say two Rakahs of superoragatory (Nafl) prayer and then offer thanksgiving and praise to The Lord; afterwards, he should invoke peace and blessings of Allah on the Prophet, and finally utter this prayer to Allah: La ilaha illallahul-halimul-karim. Subhanallahi rabbil-arshil-azeem. Wal-hamdu lillahi rabbil-alameen. As’ aluka mujibati rahmatika wa azaaimi maghfiratika wal-ghanimata min kulli birrin was-salamata min kulli ithmin la tada li dhanban illa ghafartahu wa la hamman illa farrajtahu wa la haajatan hiya laka ridan illa qadaitaha ya arhamar-rahimeen.” [Tirmidhi]

Prophet's Khutba for Ramadan

Ibn Khuzaima reported on the authority of Salman al-Farisi that the Prophet (saaw) delivered a Khutbah on the last day of Sh'aban saying: "O people: You are about to enter the shadow of a great blessed month. A night therein is better than a thousand months. Allah (swt) made fasting during this month an obligation and encouraged people to perform extra prayers. during its nights. Seeking nearness to Allah (swt) through a good deed would be considered like performing an obligatory  act of worship. In turn, performance of an obligatory act of worship during this month would be rewarded seventy times more than during any other month. It is the month of patience, and the reward for patience is Jannah. It is the month of comforting others, and the month during which believers would enjoy plentifulness. The Prophet (saaw) went on to say:" Make sure you frequently do four things, two of which would please your Lord and the other two are indispensable for your salvation in the Hereafter. As for the two things that would please your Lord, they are: testifying to  the  oneness of Allah (swt) and seeking repentance. And the other two are: asking Allah  the favour of entering Jannah and seeking refuge in Him from the Hell Fire."
And here is another hadith worth keeping in mind, inshaAllah. The Prophet said, "Whoever does not give up false statements (i.e. telling lies), and evil deeds, and speaking bad words to others, Allah is not in need of his leaving his food and drink (fasting)." Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.83, Narrated by Abu Huraira.

Are people like computers?

 Are people like computers?

Just a thought, are we humans a bit like computers.

1] The box that houses the computer comes in all shapes, sizes and colours. Just like humans.

2] We have a hard drive, it’s called a brain and it resides in our skull. The brain controls most of the essential functions of the body. Doing so without us even thinking about them. Just like the main processor in the hard drives operating system.

3] We see, hear, touch, taste and smell by the use of our external sensors, The computer receives information from its external sources. We do have the extra advantage of having the use of logic, gut feeling and some might say a disadvantage the feelings of guilt and compassion.

4] Most computers use the same operating system [I know that is not strictly true] but most humans use the operating system given to them by their creator [whatever you want to call him/her]

Now comes the tricky bit, whilst we all have basically the same bodies and brains, our programming differs greatly. We are all of us influenced by our parents, grand parents and siblings initially. [basic programming] Then we go to school/university were we receive intermediate programming. Has we go to work, meet other people, some are friends, some are work colleagues who influence our thinking.

Oh God, we seek your Mercy!

Oh God, we seek your Mercy!
This world is full of 
war and blood
This world is full of 
hatred and ignorance
This world is full of
Betrayal and brutality 
This world is full of 
Falsehood and hypocrisy
A new world full of 
love and harmony 
A new world full of 
humanity and brotherhood
Where children and women are safe
Where knowledge is free for everybody
Where equality is practised 
irrespective of colour, cast and creed
Can only give us peace and tranquillity. 
Oh God Almighty, we seek your Mercy!

Benefit of Going to the Masjid

Abu Hurairah (radi Allahu anhu) reported that the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “He who purifies himself (performs Wudhu) in his house and then walks to one of the houses of Allah (Masjid) for performing an obligatory Salat, one step of his will wipe out his sins and another step will elevate his rank (in Jannah).” [Sahih Muslim]

This hadith tells us the merit of offering Salat in the Masjid. Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) encourages us to go to the Masjid for Fardh prayers by offering us alternatively the wiping out of minor sins and the elevation of one’s rank in Jannah by one degree with each step that one takes towards the Masjid.

This hadith also indicates the superiority of cleansing and readying oneself in one’s house rather than in the Masjid. One should try to go to the Masjid in one’s best condition. This is practical advice to help prevent unnecessary crowding and mess in the Masjid’s bathrooms and Wudhu areas. Since the Masjid is one of the houses of Allah we should try to keep our presence in it as pleasant as possible.

Punctuality in the Asr and Fajr Prayers

Abu Hurairah (radi Allahu anhu) reported that the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “There are angels who take turns in visiting you by night and by day, and they all assemble at the dawn (Fajr) and the afternoon (Asr) prayers. Those who have spent the night with you, ascend (to the heaven) and Allah, Who knows better about them, asks, ‘In what condition did you leave My slaves?’ They reply, ‘We left them while they were performing Salat and we went to them while they were performing Salat.’” [Sahih Bukhari]

When the principal of a school makes special mention of the high achievement of one of the students in assembly, it is not because the Principal doesn’t know, but because he/she wants to honour the high achiever by mentioning their achievements before all the other students and faculty. Almighty Allah knows everything but even then He asks the angels about His pious slaves so that the piety of the believers and their merit and distinction become evident to all.

Always Alhamdulillah

Abu Yahya Suhaib bin Sinan (radi Allahu anhu) reported that the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “How wonderful is the case of a believer; there is good for him in everything and this applies only to a believer. If prosperity befalls him, he expresses gratitude to Allah and that is good for him; and if adversity befalls him, he endures it patiently and that is good for him.” [Sahih Muslim]

For a Muslim there is reward (hasanaat), and thus eternal good (khair), in every circumstance. Since Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) is responsible for all the good that comes to us we thank and praise Him by saying and feeling “Alhamdulillah” in all circumstances.

There was once a courtier of a king who would always say, “Alhamdulillah.” One day the king’s hand got cut. The courtier exclaimed, “Alhamdulillah.” The king got very upset at this and had the courtier thrown into prison. The courtier again said “Alhamdulillah” on being put in jail.

Poison Saddam! Cook refused!

The Cook, Haja Mohideen from Keelakkarai, India, was shedding tears when he was talking about his previous employer, Saddam Hussain.

Haja Mohideen served Saddam, for many years. At present he is running a Fast Food Restaurant in Triplicane, India.

We met him in his residence at Puthuppet. He started to relate his experience in the Palace of Saddam.

“On my first day of work as a personal cook for Saddam, a manager like person, in some formal dress, gave me a menu for the day, for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.

This routine continued and I served the food accordingly.

Purpose of Marriage

When a man married, the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) would say, “Allah bless you, and unite you both in good works.” [Abu Dawud]

The purpose of all our actions in life should be the pleasure of Allah (subhana wa ta’ala). This is true for marriage as well. Together husband and wife make a fantastic team but for this their mutual relationship has to be strong.
Regarding the husband-wife relationship Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) says: “They are as a garment for you and you are as a garment for them.” [Quran 2:187] The following two ayaat of the Quran explain what the function of a garment is:

Parents are the Gates

Abu Umama (radi Allahu anhu) narrates that a man enquired from the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam): “O Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam)! What are the rights of parents over their offspring?” The Prophet replied: “Your entry into Paradise or Hell depends on your good or bad conduct towards your parents.” [Ibn Majah]

In other words, if you treat them well the gates of Paradise will be opened for you and you will be admitted therein, but if you violate the rights that your parents have over you, the gates of Hell will be opened for you and you will be consigned to serve as fuel for it.

The following is the advice that Abdullah bin Umar gave to Abdullah ibn Abbas (radi Allahu anhuma) regarding how he should treat his parents:

No One is Perfect

Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Let no Mu’min hate a Mu’minah: if he hate her for one trait in her character, let him be pleased with another that is in her.” [Sahih Muslim]

Love does not mean that we should always agree with or feel good about our partners. A man may like a quality not in his wife, but he should be conscious of the fact that she might have other qualities that are even better.

Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) says that spouses are like clothes for each other. They hide the defects in the body, and beautify the body. Each person wears clothes that are just the right size for their body. So also Allah gave you the spouse just right for you, somebody who complements your strengths and compensates for your weaknesses. Therefore, never compare your partner with others. Somebody else’s clothes may look great on them but terribe on you.

The same applies to the wife regarding her husband. Perfection in humans is only possible in Jannah; it does not exist in humans on earth. So don’t look for it here.

Secularism: The beauty of India

 Khaled Almaeena  

[ The people of Chennai have set an example for the rest of India to follow. Let India embrace their ideals.]

The rains that poured across Tamil Nadu and especially in Chennai brought unprecedented hardship to the city. However, as the skies opened up, the deluge caused another opening which was that of people’s hearts.

Following the news on TV from Jeddah, reading the tweets and checking Facebook, I could not help but notice how this calamity also brought with it cohesion. It created a people’s movement. The floods created a race for survival as rising water levels submerged cars and trucks and reached first-floor apartments.

Sex MashAllah…Islam and female sexuality



Many men and women in our communities live under the illusion that only men feel desire or have an interest in being sexual, and that women should not or cannot feel attraction, do not experience sexual pleasure, and can live healthy intimate lives without sexual satisfaction for lengthy periods of time.  This leads to misunderstandings and disappointments about wanting sex, initiating intimacy, and/or feeling excitement when sexual stimulation occurs.

This series of articles contains the perspectives of several Muslim women at different stages of life who have grown up and lived in different parts of the world, East and West, and want to share some insights with Muslim men – both married and unmarried – who don’t want sexually repressed, bitter spouses and failing marriages.  This is a look behind the scenes to aid understanding of a universal social issue. For the sake of privacy, each writer is identified only by her marital status. May Allāh bless all of us with loving, passionate, and fulfilling intimate lives.

Married 20 Years, On Learning and Teaching Female Sexuality

With all due respect to my beloved and respected Shuyūkh, to whom I owe much of the knowledge I have gained about my religion, and for inspiring me to higher spiritual goals in my life, I firmly believe teaching female sexuality should be primarily handled by females – especially those who counsel on marital issues, psychologically or spiritually, and are familiar with the extended intimacy problems amongst women.

We already have issues with Muslim women not being sexually satisfied in their marriages, and these issues are exacerbated when women hesitate before approaching a male scholar to discuss their sexual challenges. It is time for us to acknowledge a serious problem we are facing in our Ummah: the issue of female sexuality

Clean shaven people are more at risk than Bearded ones,study reveals

Contrary to popular belief, Beards may be more bacteria-resistant and hygienic than clean-shaven men.
According to a recent study of hospital workers found that those without facial hair are more likely to harbor dangerous bacteria than their more hirsute colleagues.
It was the clean-shaved men and not the proud beard owners who are more than three times as likely to be carrying a meticillin-resistant staph auerus (MRSA),a dangerous bacteria. The researchers speculate that shaving creates microscopic abrasions in the face that serve as prime breeding grounds for the dangerous bacteria.
The research took place in a hospital, where they swabbed the faces of 400+ staff members both with and without beards.
According to the biologist Dr Adam Roberts, it’s entirely possible that some of the bacteria found in beards have evolved to release powerful, antibiotic toxins that keep harmful bacteria at bay.
This was revealed in BBC show Trust me I’m a Doctor.

Reliance like Birds

Reliance like Birds

Umar (radi Allahu anhu) said: "I heard the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) say, 'If you were to rely upon Allah with the reliance He is due, you would be given provision like the birds: They go out hungry in the morning and come back with full bellies in the evening.'" [Ibn Majah - graded hasan, Tirmidhi]

The reliance of birds is that they do not store their livelihood. They have full trust that as Allah provided them with their food today, He will surely grant their food tomorrow as well.

Reliance does not mean that the lawful means of earning a livelihood should be abandoned. Even birds have to leave their nests in search of their meal, and they get their food after some effort. So a Muslim should also seek his earnings through lawful means, but not be greedy.

Three Enormities

Abu Hurairah (radi Allahu anhu) narrated that Allah’s Messenger (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “There are three types of people Allah will neither speak to on the Day of Resurrection nor purify them from sins, and they shall have a painful punishment. They are:

(1)    A man possessing superfluous water (more than he needs) on a way and he withholds it from travelers.
(2)    A man who gives a Bai’a (pledge) to an Imam (ruler) and gives it only for worldly benefits; if the Imam gives him what he wants, he abides by his pledge, otherwise he does not fulfill his pledge.
(3)    A man who sells something to another man after the Asr prayer and swears by Allah (a false oath) that he has been offered so much for it whereupon the buyer believes him and buys it although in fact the seller has not been offered such a price.” [The Book of Al-Ahkam: Sahih Bukhari]
