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.

Am I Big Headed ?

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.
