What Prophet Muhammad Gave to Humanity


















10 Points of Enlightenment on What Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) Gave to Humanity


All praise is due to Allah, and blessings and peace be upon His final Messenger.
Some non-Muslim westerners have been wondering what it is that Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) presented to humanity, particularly after the defamation of his honorable character by western media.
Assuming responsibility under the International Program for Introducing the Prophet of Mercy (blessings and peace be upon him), we deem it our duty to answer the questions regarding what our Prophet gave to humanity and the world. It can be briefly summarized as follows:
  • Through revelation from God (Allah), Muhammad (Peace be upon him) transferred humanity from obedience and submission to other men to the worship and submission to God alone, associating nothing with Him. Consequently, human kind became free from servitude to other than Allah, and this is the greatest honor for mankind.
  • Through revelation from God, Muhammad (Peace be upon him) liberated the human mind from superstition, deception and submission to false objects of worship as well as those concepts contrary to reason, such as the claim that God had a human son whom He sacrificed to atone for the sins of humanity.
  • Muhammad (Peace be upon him) laid the foundations for tolerance among people. In the Qur'an, Allah revealed to His Prophet that there is to be no compulsion in the acceptance of religion. Muhammad (Peace be upon him) also clarified the rights of the non-Muslims who do not wage war against Muslims and guaranteed protection of their lives, children, property and honor. Even today in many Muslim countries there are Jewish and Christian citizens living in peace and security in contrast to the Spanish Inquisitions in which Muslims were exterminated in an ethnic cleansing that violated all the humanitarian principles asserted by the western culture.
  • Muhammad (Peace be upon him) was a mercy sent by God to all peoples regardless of race or faith. In fact, his teachings include mercy even to birds and animals, and forbid harming them without right or reason.
  • Muhammad (showed unparalleled respect for and appreciation of all the prophets who preceded him, among them Abraham, Moses and Jesus (peace be upon them all). God revealed to him words to the effect that one who denies or disrespects any of the prophets cannot be a Muslim. Islam regards all of the prophets as one brotherhood, inviting people to the belief that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah, who is the one true God.
  • Muhammad (Peace be upon him) defended human rights for both males and females, for young and old, regardless of social status. He established a set of sublime principles; one example being in the speech he gave during his farewell pilgrimage in which he declared strict prohibition of transgression against people's lives, property and honor. These principles he laid down long before the world knew of the Magna Charta in 1215, the Declaration of Rights in 1628, the Personal Freedoms Law in 1679, the American Declaration of Independence in 1776, the Human and Citizen Rights Charter in 1789, and the worldwide Declaration of Human Rights in 1948.
  • Muhammad (Peace be upon him) elevated the importance of morality in human life. He called for good manners, honesty, loyalty and chastity and strengthened social bonds such as being dutiful to parents and relatives, always putting into practice what he preached. He prohibited and warned against such negative behavior as lying, envy, betrayal, fornication and disrespect of parents, and he treated the problems stemming from these diseases.
  • Through the revelation from God Muhammad (Peace be upon him) invited people to use their minds, to discover the universe around them and to acquire knowledge. He confirmed that God rewards such deeds at a time when scientists and intellectuals in other civilizations were suffering persecution and accusations of heresy and blasphemy, being terrorized in prisons, tortured and often killed.
  • Muhammad (Peace be upon him) came with a revelation from God, presenting a religion compatible to human nature - one that satisfies the needs of the soul and those of the body and establishes a balance between worldly deeds and those done for the Hereafter. It is a religion that disciplines human instincts and desires without suppressing them completely as in some other cultures which were absorbed with ideals contrary to human nature, depriving religious men given to worship of such natural human rights as marriage and of such natural reactions as anger toward transgression, expecting them not to defend against aggressors. This led most members of these civilizations to reject religious teachings and become absorbed in the material world, which caters only to their bodies while leaving their souls in a miserable state.
  • Muhammad (Peace be upon him) presented to the world a perfect model of brotherhood among human beings. He taught that no race is superior to another for all are equal in origin and equal in their responsibilities and rights. One's degree of faith and piety is the only criterion for preference. His companions were given equal opportunities to belong to and serve the religion. Among them were Suhayb, a Byzantine, Bilal, an Abyssinian, Salman, a Persian, and many other non-Arabs.
In conclusion, each of these ten points requires further detail and explanation. What Muhammad (Peace be upon him) offered humanity is much more than can be mentioned in this brief outline. There is also a great deal that has been said about him by objective researchers from the East and West after they studied the biography of this great Prophet.


Blessings and peace be upon Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) as well as all the other prophets of God, and upon his family, his companions and followers.

Women in Islam: Oppression or Liberation ?

















For centuries, Muslim women in all corners of the world have been aware of the liberation that is achieved by adhering to the concept of hijab. Current world events have once again brought the issue of women’s liberation in Islam to the forefront of people’s minds.

Can a Woman Who Adheres to Hijab Be Liberated?

Can a religion that considers morality to be a part of faith clearly define the equality of men and women and their rights and responsibilities? The answer is a resounding “yes.” In a day and age when the basic tenets of Islam are being questioned by Muslim and non-Muslim alike, we must be cautious when evaluating Islam.

The general picture that is painted by the media is biased and unsubstantiated. The impression that some Muslims give to the world is often not a true reflection of the religion, one that is the completion of all religions. Islam, the religion for all people in all places and times, which takes the equality of men and women very seriously. It sees the liberation of women as essential and considers modesty, good character, and manners to be the way to achieve such liberation.

Too often, the image of a covered woman is used to represent what much of the world views as oppression. Her very existence is described in terms that convey ignorance and unhappiness. Words like “beaten,” “repressed” and “oppressed” are bandied about by the Western media in a desperate attempt to convince the readers that women in Islam have no rights. Descriptive and intrinsically oppressive terms such as “shrouded” and “shackled” are used to portray an image of women who have no minds and who are the slaves or possessions of their husbands and fathers. In the 19th century, T. E. Lawrence described women in Arabia as “death taking a walk,” and from that time forward, the true status of women in Islam has been shrouded by misunderstanding. The truth about women and Islam is far from this melodramatic portrayal.

Over 1,400 years ago, Islam raised the status of women from a position of oppression to one of liberation and equality. In an era when women were considered possessions, Islam restored women to a position of dignity.

In order to gain a true insight into the real and lasting liberation that Islam guarantees women, we must first examine the concept of liberation as viewed by the West. In Western countries where liberation encompasses unlimited freedom, many women are actually finding themselves living lives that are unsatisfying and meaningless. In their quest for liberation, they have abandoned the ideals of morality and stability and found themselves in marriages and families that bear little resemblance to real life.

What is liberating about working all day and coming home at night to the housework? What is liberating about having babies who, at six weeks old can be deposited in childcare centers to learn their behavior and morality from strangers? Girls as young as 6 years old have been diagnosed with eating disorders, teenage pregnancy is rampant, and women who choose to stay at home to raise their families are viewed as old fashioned or unemployable.

Women in the West are liberated: liberated to the point that they are no longer free to choose the life that is natural for them. They are free only to choose from the selection of consumer goods offered to them by their masters. The so-called liberated women of the West have become slaves. Slaves to the economic system, slaves to the fashion and beauty industries, and slaves to a society that views them as brainless machines, taught to look desirable, earn money, and shop. Even the career woman who has managed to push her way through the glass ceiling is a slave to the consumer society, which requires her to reside in a spacious house, wear only the latest designer clothes, drive a luxurious car, and educate her children at the most exclusive and expensive schools.

Is This Liberation?

The natural inclination of women is to please, comfort, and support their men: their husbands, fathers, brothers, or sons. The natural inclination of men is to protect, support, and provide for the women lawfully in their lives: wives, mothers, sisters, and daughters. Islam, the only true religion and infallible guide to life, requires that we follow such natural inclinations. It allows us to abandon ideas that are intrinsically foreign to human nature and supports us in developing and sustaining natural family relationships that spread out to form part of the wider Muslim community.

A Muslim woman knows her place in society and knows her place in the family infrastructure. Her religion is her first priority; therefore, her role is clear-cut and defined. A Muslim woman, far from being oppressed, is a woman who is liberated in the true sense of the word. She is a slave to no man or to any economic system; rather, she is the slave of God. Islam clearly defines women’s rights and responsibilities spiritually, socially, and economically. Islam’s clear-cut guidelines are empowering; they raise women to a natural and revered position.

Women in Islam have no need to protest and demonstrate for equal rights. They have no need to live their lives aimlessly acquiring possessions and money. With the perfection of Islam as the natural and only true religion came the undeniable fact that women and men are equal, partners and protectors of one another.

{So their Lord accepted from them; Never will I allow to be lost the work of any of you, be they male or female. You are of one another; so those who emigrated or were driven out from their homes, who suffered harm in My cause, and fought and were killed, I will verily expiate from them their evil deeds and admit them into gardens under which rivers flow: a reward from God; and with God is the best rewards.} [Quran 3:195]

{And whoever does righteous good deeds, male or female, and is a true believer in the Oneness of Allah, such will enter paradise; and not the least injustice, even to the size of a speck on the back of a date stone, will be done to them.}

 [Quran 4:124]

Women in Islam have the right to own property, to control their own money or money that they earn, to buy and sell, and to give gifts and charity. They have formal rights of inheritance. They have the right to an education; seeking and acquiring knowledge is an obligation on all Muslims, male or female. Married Muslim women are completely free from the obligation of supporting and maintaining the family, yet may work if they wish too.

They are in no way forced into marriage, but have the right to accept or refuse a proposal as they see fit. Women in Islam have the right to seek divorce if it becomes necessary, as they also have the right to save their marriages.

Islam teaches that the family is the core of society. In Western cultures, the fabric of society is being torn apart by the breakdown of the family unit. It is in these crumbling communities that the call for the liberation of women arises. It seems to be a misguided and feeble attempt to find a path of security and safety. Such security is available only when the human being turns back to God and accepts the role for which he or she was created.

Liberation means freedom, but not the freedom to do as one pleases. Freedom must never be at the expense of oneself or of the wider community. When a woman fulfills the role for which she was created, not only is she liberated but she is empowered.

The modestly dressed or covered woman you see in the street is liberated. She is liberated from the shackles that have tied the feet of her Western counterparts. She is liberated from the economic slavery of the West, and she is liberated from the necessity of managing a house and family without the support of her husband or the help of a wider community. She lives her life based on divine guidelines; her life is filled with peace, happiness, and strength. She is not afraid of the world, but rather embraces its tests and trials with patience and fortitude, secure in the fact that true liberation is only achieved by full and willing submission to the natural order of the universe.

Oppression is not defined by a piece of material, but rather by a sickening of the heart and a weakening of the mind. Oppression grows in a society that is crumbling because its members have lost sight of the true purpose of their existence. Liberation arises and takes root in a society that is just, cohesive, and based on natural order and divine guidelines. Islam is such a society, and this is what makes a Muslim woman is liberated.

Enjoining right and Forbidding wrong









عن أبي سعيد الخدري قال : سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول : من رأى منكم منكرا فليغيره بيده ، فإن لم يستطع فبلسانه ، فإن لم يستطع فبقلبه ، وذلك أضعف الإيمان . رواه مسلم  



The sunnah of the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, supports that command, and clarifies it with the most evident clarification. He, sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, says: “Whoever among you sees a wrongdoing, let him change it with his hand. If he has no enough power to do so, let him (change it) with his tongue. If he has no enough power even to do so, let him (disapprove of it) with his heart; and that is the least degree of faith.” [Muslim] 






Obligation of enjoining what is right and forbiding what is wrong



In the Name of Allah, All perfect praise be to Allah. May Allah send blessing and peace upon the noblest of creation of Allah: Muhammad Ibn ‘Abdullah, sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. To go further:

What is the significance of giving precedence to enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong? Although it is a communal obligation, Allah Almighty gave precedence to it (in mention) over prayer and Zakah (almsgiving) in the following Holy Verse (what means): “The believing men and believing women are allies of one another. They enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and establish prayer and give zakah and obey Allah and His Messenger. Those - Allah will have mercy upon them. Indeed, Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.” [Tawbah 9:71]

‏وَالْمُؤْمِنُونَ وَالْمُؤْمِنَاتُ بَعْضُهُمْ أَوْلِيَاءُ بَعْضٍ يَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَيَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ وَيُقِيمُونَ الصَّلَاةَ وَيُؤْتُونَ الزَّكَاةَ وَيُطِيعُونَ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ أُولَئِكَ سَيَرْحَمُهُمُ اللَّهُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَزِيزٌ حَكِيمٌ
 التوبة: 71

 
 No doubt, this command takes precedence due to the dire need for it, and the necessity to be enforced, thereby the ummah would become righteous, good and virtues multiply, vices disappear, and its individuals co-operate on good. But wasting it leads to great catastrophes and evils, division of the ummah, cruelty or death of hearts, and emergence of vices.

Who are those upon whom Allah has mercy?

Allah Almighty clarifies that those who enjoin what is right, forbid what is wrong, establish prayer, give zakah and obey Allah and His Messenger, sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, would receive the mercy of Allah as stated in His saying (what means): “Those - Allah will have mercy upon them.” [Tawbah 9:71] 


{أُولَئِكَ سَيَرْحَمُهُمُ اللَّهُ}
التوبة: 71

 
This indicates that mercy of Allah Almighty is obtained by obeying Him, and following His ordinance, esp. the command to enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong.

Ranks of enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong

The sunnah of the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, supports that command, and clarifies it with the most evident clarification. He, sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, says: “Whoever among you sees a wrongdoing, let him change it with his hand. If he has no enough power to do so, let him (change it) with his tongue. If he has no enough power even to do so, let him (disapprove of it) with his heart; and that is the least degree of faith.” [Muslim]


‹‹من رأى منكم منكراً فليغيره بيده، فإن لم يستطع فبلسانه، فإن لم يستطع فبقلبه، وذلك أضعف الإيمان››
رواه مسلم

 


In this way, he, sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, clarified the three ranks of enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong:

The first rank:

To change the evildoing with the hand in case of having power enough to do so, such as to spill over the utensils of alcoholic drinks, hold back the evildoers and wrongdoers from executing their evil and wrongness upon the people - and this is specific to him who has the authority to do so like the ruler and the men in power - to enjoin upon the people to establish prayer, execute the judgment of Allah which should be followed… to the end of those things made obligatory by Allah Almighty, provided that the one who enjoins right and forbids wrong should have the power to do so.

As such the behavior of a faithful believer should be with his family and children: to enjoin upon them the command of Allah and prevent them from what is made unlawful by Allah, with his hand if speech is useless.

The second rank:

It is to disapprove with the tongue, according to which he enjoins right upon them, and forbids them to do wrong, with his tongue, such as to say: “O people! Fear Allah! O my brothers! Fear Allah! Establish prayer and give Zakah, and leave that evildoing. Do such and such good. Leave what is made unlawful by Allah…” seeking the (bad) things they do in order to draw their attention to them, dealing with them kindly in the best manner possible, in response to the statement of the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam: “Never does kindness lie in anything but that it adorns it, and never is it taken from anything but that it damages it.” [Ahmad]


‹‹إن الرفق لا يكون في شئ إلا زانه، ولا ينزع من شئ إلا شانه››
مسند احمد

The third rank:

If a believer fails to change an evildoing with the hand and even with the tongue, let him then disapprove of and dislike it from the bottom of his heart, and not soften (in his position) towards its perpetrators. It is narrated from ‘Abdullah Ibn Mas‘ud, may Allah be pleased with him, that somebody said to him: “Should I be ruined if I do neither enjoin right nor forbid wrong?” he said: “You would be ruined if your heart does not approve of right and disapprove of wrong.”

Why does supplication receive no answer?

Relevant to our topic, i.e. to enjoin right and forbid wrong, is the Hadith narrated on the authority of Hudhaifah, may Allah be pleased with him, that the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: “By Him in Whose Hand is my soul: you should enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong, otherwise, Allah is about to send upon you punishment from Himself, and if you invoke Him, He would not respond to you.” [Ahmad]


‹‹والذي نفسي بيده لتأمرون بالمعروف، ولتنهون عن المنكر، أو ليوشكن الله أن يبعث عليكم عقاباً من عنده ثم لتدعونه فلا يستجيب لكم››
رواه أحمد

Ruling on enjoining right and forbidding wrong

This duty might turn into an individual obligation on him who sees an evildoing and there is none other than him to remove it, in which case, it becomes incumbent upon him to remove it provided that he should have enough power to do so, in view of the statement previously mentioned: “Whoever among you sees a wrongdoing, let him change it with his hand. If he has no enough power to do so, let him (change it) with his tongue. If he has no enough power even to do so, let him (disapprove of it) with his heart; and that is the least degree of faith.” [Muslim]



‹‹من رأى منكم منكراً فليغيره بيده، فإن لم يستطع فبلسانه، فإن لم يستطع فبقلبه، وذلك أضعف الإيمان ››

  رواه مسلم
 

But if they are more than one, it then becomes a communal obligation upon them in the village, the town or the tribe in which they live. If anyone of them removes it, the purpose then will be achieved, and the reward will be due to him; and if all of them leave it, they will be sinful, just like the other communal obligations.

If there is, in the town or the tribe, none but one scholar, it becomes individually obligatory upon him to teach the people, call them to Allah, enjoin upon them to do right, and forbid them to do wrong, as much as lies within his capacity and power, due to the previous Hadiths, in addition to the statement of Allah Almighty (what means): “So fear Allah as much as you are able” [At-Taghabun 64:16]


‏{‏فَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ مَا اسْتَطَعْتُمْ}
التغابن: 16
 

Patience and seeking the reward of Allah

Whoever is helped by Allah to stick to patience , seeking the reward of Allah, and be sincere to Allah, from among the scholars, Du‘ah, and those who enjoin right and forbid wrong, will succeed and prosper, and will receive aid and guidance, and Allah will benefit the people with him, as He says (what means): “And whoever fears Allah - He will make for him a way out (2) And will provide for him from where he does not expect.” [At-Talaq 65:2-3] 




{وَمَنْ يَتَّقِ اللَّهَ يَجْعَلْ لَهُ مَخْرَجًا (2)وَيَرْزُقْهُ مِنْ حَيْثُ لَا يَحْتَسِبُ}
الطلاق: 2-3


The saved winners in the world and the hereafter are those of faith and righteous deed, who advise each other to stick to truth and patience.

It is a well-known fact that to enjoin right and forbid wrong, and advise each other to stick to truth and patience are an inseparable part of piety. But Allah Almighty mentioned them in particular for further clarification and exhortation. The point is that whoever enjoins right, forbids wrong, calls to Allah and perseveres, seeking the reward of Allah, will carry all such good attributes and characteristics (of the faithful believers), and will attain the profit in full and abiding happiness if he dies on that.

Knowledge and comprehension of religion of Allah Almighty

My Muslim brother! You should approve of right and disapprove of wrong by religious knowledge and comprehension. Then, you could do your duty of enjoining right and forbidding wrong. Sticking to patience, and religious knowledge and comprehension are among the signs of happiness, and indications that Allah Almighty has intended good for His servant, as narrated in an authentic Hadith on the authority of Mu‘awiyah that the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: “If Allah intends to do good to a man, He will endow him with the religious knowledge and comprehension.” [Muslim]


‹‹من يرد الله به خيراً يفقهه في الدين››
رواه مسلم

If you see a man pursuing the circles of knowledge, asking about knowledge, doing his best to learn and understand religion, and sticking to patience, you should know that this is among the indications that Allah Almighty has intended good for him. So, let him adhere to that, strive his utmost in it, and neither weary nor weaken. The Messenger of Allah, sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, says in an authentic Hadith: “He, who follows a path therewith he seeks after knowledge, Allah Almighty will make easy for him the way to Paradise.” [Muslim]


‹‹من سلك طريقاً يلتمس فيه علماً سهل الله له به طريقاً إلى الجنة››
صحيح مسلم

He also should memorize the Book of Allah, since the Holy Qur’an is the foundation and source of knowledge, the great basis, the strong rope of Allah Almighty, the greatest and the noblest Book, the best leader to good, and the strongest deterrent from evil.

My advice to every believing man and woman is to be interested in the Holy Qur’an, recite it more often, be eager to memorize it or what is made easy of it, meditate and give thought to it, since guidance and light lie in it as stated by Allah Almighty (what means): “Indeed, this Qur'an guides to that which is most suitable.” [Al ‘Israa’ 17:9]


{‏إِنَّ هَذَا الْقُرْآنَ يَهْدِي لِلَّتِي هِيَ أَقْوَمُ}
الإسراء: 9



The same is true of the sunnah of the Prophet, sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, the second Divine revelation and foundation (of jurisprudence), which explicates and guides to the Book of Allah Almighty.

I ask Allah, by His Most Beautiful Names and Supreme Attributes, to guide us and all Muslims to the advantageous knowledge and the righteous deed, to endow us with the knowledge and understanding of his religion and keep us firm on it, to bestow upon all of us the favor of undertaking that duty as much as lies within our capacity and power, to help the Muslim rulers do this duty with patience on it, to help such as entrusted to do this duty perform it to the best, and to help all people fulfill what is due to Him, be sincere to Him and His servants: He Almighty is Most Munificent, Most Generous.

May Allah send blessing and peace upon His servant, our Prophet Muhammad, sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, his family and Companions, and those who follow them with good conduct .

حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ جَعْفَرٍ ، ثنا إِسْمَاعِيلُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ، ثنا عَمْرُو بْنُ خَالِدٍ الْمِصْرِيُّ ، ثنا بَكْرُ بْنُ مُضَرَ ، عَنْ أَبِي زُرْعَةَ عَمْرٍو ، عَنْ جَابِرِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ، رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : " مَنْ صَامَ رَمَضَانَ ثُمَّ أَتْبَعَهُ بِسِتٍّ مِنْ شَوَّالٍ فَكَأَنَّمَا صَامَ الدَّهْرَ " وَرَوَاهُ عَمْرُو بْنُ دِينَارٍ ، وَمُجَاهِدٌ ، عَنْ جَابِرٍ مِثْلَهُ ، وَرَوَاهُ مُجَاهِدٌ عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَ


What is the ruling on fasting six days of Shawwal? Is it wajib
(obligatory)?

Praise be to Allah.

Fasting six days of Shawwal after the obligatory fast of Ramadhan is Sunnah Mustahabbah, not wajib. It is recommended for the Muslim to fast six days of Shawwal, and in this there is great virtue and an immense reward. Whoever fasts these six days will have recorded for him a reward as if he had fasted a whole year, as was reported in a sahih hadith from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). Abu Ayyub (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: "Whoever fasts Ramadhan and follows it with six days of Shawwal, it will be as if he fasted for a lifetime." [Narrated by Muslim, Abu Dawud, at-Tirmidhi, an-Nisa'i and Ibn Majah]

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) explained this when he said: "Whoever fasts for six days after ('Eid) al-Fitr has completed the year: (whoever does a good deed (hasanah) will have ten hasanah like it)." According to another report: "Allah has made for each hasanah ten like it, so a month is like fasting ten months, and fasting six days completes the year." [An-Nisa'i and Ibn Majah. See also Sahih at-Targhib wa't-Tarhib, 1/421). It was also narrated by Ibn Khuzaymah with the wording: "Fasting for the month of Ramadhan brings the reward of ten like it, and fasting for six days brings the reward of two months, and that is the fasting of the whole year."

The Hanbali and Shafi'i fuqaha' explained that fasting six days of Shawwal after fasting Ramadhan makes it as if one has fasted for an entire year of obligatory fasts, because the multiplication of the reward applies even to nafil fasts, because each hasanah brings the reward of ten like it.

Another of the important benefits of fasting six days of Shawwal is that is makes up for any shortfall in a person's obligatory Ramadhan fasts, because no one is free of shortcomings or sins that have a negative effect on his fasting. On the Day of Resurrection, some of his nafil deeds will be taken to make up the shortcomings in his obligatory deeds, as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: "The first thing for which people will be brought to account on the Day of Resurrection will be their salah (prayer). Our Lord, may He be glorified and exalted, will say to His angels - although He knows best - 'Look at the salah of My slave, whether it is complete or incomplete.' If it is perfect, it will be recorded as perfect, and if something is lacking, He will say, 'Look and see whether My slave did any voluntary (nafil) prayers.' If he did some voluntary prayers, [Allah] will say, Complete the obligatory actions of My slave from his voluntary actions.' Then all his actions will be dealt with in a similar manner." [Narrated by Abu Dawud]

And Allah knows best






Surat Al-Hadid Aya 20






اعْلَمُوا أَنَّمَا الْحَيَاةُ الدُّنْيَا لَعِبٌ وَلَهْوٌ وَزِينَةٌ وَتَفَاخُرٌ بَيْنَكُمْ وَتَكَاثُرٌ فِي الْأَمْوَالِ وَالْأَوْلَادِ ۖ كَمَثَلِ غَيْثٍ أَعْجَبَ الْكُفَّارَ نَبَاتُهُ ثُمَّ يَهِيجُ فَتَرَاهُ مُصْفَرًّا ثُمَّ يَكُونُ حُطَامًا ۖ وَفِي الْآخِرَةِ عَذَابٌ شَدِيدٌ وَمَغْفِرَةٌ مِنَ اللَّهِ وَرِضْوَانٌ ۚ وَمَا الْحَيَاةُ الدُّنْيَا إِلَّا مَتَاعُ الْغُرُورِ

سورة الحديد اية 20



Know that the life of this world is but amusement and diversion and adornment and boasting to one another and competition in increase of wealth and children - like the example of a rain whose [resulting] plant growth pleases the tillers; then it dries and you see it turned yellow; then it becomes [scattered] debris. And in the Hereafter is severe punishment and forgiveness from Allah and approval. And what is the worldly life except the enjoyment of delusion.

Forgive People Allah Will Forgive You

 

 

 

 

 
أعف عن الناس ..... يغفر لك الله

وَلَا يَأْتَلِ أُولُو الْفَضْلِ مِنكُمْ وَالسَّعَةِ أَن يُؤْتُوا أُولِي الْقُرْبَىٰ وَالْمَسَاكِينَ وَالْمُهَاجِرِينَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ ۖ وَلْيَعْفُوا وَلْيَصْفَحُوا ۗ أَلَا تُحِبُّونَ أَن يَغْفِرَ اللَّهُ لَكُمْ ۗ وَاللَّهُ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ  22
سورة  النور أية 22


And let not those of virtue among you and wealth swear not to give [aid] to their relatives and the needy and the emigrants for the cause of Allah , and let them pardon and overlook. Would you not like that Allah should forgive you? And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
An-Noor Aya 22


العفو عند المقدرة دليل رقي النفس الأنسانية


فَبِمَا رَحْمَةٍ مِنَ اللَّهِ لِنْتَ لَهُمْ ۖ وَلَوْ كُنْتَ فَظًّا غَلِيظَ الْقَلْبِ لَانْفَضُّوا مِنْ حَوْلِكَ ۖ فَاعْفُ عَنْهُمْ وَاسْتَغْفِرْ لَهُمْ وَشَاوِرْهُمْ فِي الْأَمْرِ ۖ فَإِذَا عَزَمْتَ فَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى اللَّهِ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُحِبُّ الْمُتَوَكِّلِينَ  ١٥٩
سورة آل عمران أية 159

So by mercy from Allah , [O Muhammad], you were lenient with them. And if you had been rude [in speech] and harsh in heart, they would have disbanded from about you. So pardon them and ask forgiveness for them and consult them in the matter. And when you have decided, then rely upon Allah . Indeed, Allah loves those who rely [upon Him].
Surat 'Āli `Imrān 159
