Why Our Prayers and Dua’as are not Answered

Filed under: Dua'as,Prayers — aurangzebawan @ 3:30 pm

  Allaah – the Most High says in the Qur’aan:
“AND YOUR LORD SAYS: ‘CALL ON ME I WILL ANSWER YOUR PRAYER…” [40:60]
“Yet our supplications are not answered, because”

  1. We know Allaah, Yet We do not obey Him

  2. We recite the Qur’aan, Yet do not act according to it

  3. We acknowledge Shaitaan(Devil) as Our enemy, But We do not go against him

  4. We proclaim that We love Muhammed, (P.B.U.H) Yet We abandon his Sunnah

  5. We proclaim Our love for Paradise, Yet We do not act to gain it

  6. We proclaim Our fear of the Hell Fire, Yet We do not prevent Ourselves from sins(Shirk, Riba, Nifaq)

  7. We say “Indeed death is true”, Yet We have not prepared for it

  8. We point out the faults with others, Yet We do not look at Our faults

  9. We eat of that which Allah has provided for Us, Yet We do not thank Him

  10. We bury Our dead, Yet We do not take a lesson from it

15 Tips to Earning Rewards from Allah

Filed under: Islam — aurangzebawan @ 3:27 pm

        1- Avoid Things that Allah has forbidden, including the great sins as well as continually performing the lesser sins, and perform what Allah orders us to perform: The prophet peace be upon him said: “Allah has recorded the good deeds and the evil deeds. Then he made them clear: He who has intended a good deed and does not do it, Allah writes it down with Him as a performed good deed; but if he intends it and does perform it; Allah records for him from ten good deeds to seven hundred times that or more than that. If he intends to do an evil deed and does not do it, then Allah writes it down as a good deed; but if he intends an evil deed and performs it, Allah records it as one evil deed” (Sahih Al-Jami)2- Reciting the Quran and pondering over it’s meanings: The Prophet peace be upon him said, “Whoever recites one word from the Book of Allah will be rewarded for a good deed and ten more like it; and I don’t say that Alif Lam Mim is a word but Alif is a word and Lam is a word and Mim is a word” (Alif Lam Mim is 3 Arabic Characters.)3- Guiding people to righteous deeds: The prophet peace be upon him said, “Whoever guides one to a good thing will get the same reward as the person who performs the deed”  (Sahih Al-Jami)4- Enjoining good and eradicating evil: Allah revealed in the Quran, {Those of the children of Israel who went astray were cursed by the tongue of David, and of Jesus, son of Mary. That was because they rebelled and used to transgress. They restrained not one another from the wickedness they did. Verily, evil was that they used to do} (Al-Maida:78)
This is one of the obligatory duties that many people fail to perform today. Due to this reason, sins are being committed openly and without shame and no one is saying anything about them. The prophet peace be upon him said, “If the people see an evil deed and they do not change it, then Allah may inflict them all with a punishment”.
Allah says in the Quran: “And the believers, men and women, are protecting friends of one another, they enjoin the right and forbid the wrong .. ”
5- Supplications to Allah: It’s the best act of worship as the Prophet peace be upon him said, “The most virtuous act of worship is supplication” (Sahih Al-Jami). It’s very important to be certain that Allah will answer your supplication, the Prophet peace be upon him said: “There is no Muslim on this earth who supplicates to Allah except that Allah will give him what he asked or He will remove some evil from him, as long as he does not supplicate for something evil or as long as he does not supplicate for cutting of the ties of kinship and as long as he does not become impatient and say, ‘I supplicated and supplicated and I was not responded to'”6- Marrying religious women: The prophet peace be upon him said, “A woman is married for her religion, wealth or beauty; marry the religious women and you will prosper”. He also said, “A thankful heart, a tongue that remembers Allah and a pious wife that helps you in your worldly and religious matters, is better than what the people are amassing” (Sahih Al-Jami)7- Bringing up pious children and training them to have good Islamic character: The prophet peace be upon him said, “A man will be raised some degrees in Paradise and he will say, ‘For what reason am I receiving this ?’ He will be told, ‘Because of your son asking forgiveness for you'”8- Having good manners and character: The prophet peace be upon him said, “The most beloved of you to me and the closest of you to me in the Hereafter are those of you who have the best manners; the most hated of you to me and farthest from me in the Hereafter are those of you who have the best manners, those who speak and do not even care about what they are saying” (Sahih Al-Jami), and he also said, “The person of good manners will get the same reward as the person who prays during the night and fasts during the day” (Sahih Al-Jami).9- Performing many voluntary prayers: This is particularly beneficial during the last third of the night in which the gates of the heavens are opened and the supplications are responded to. The prophet peace be upon him said, “Allah waits until one half or two-thirds of the night has passed and He says, ‘My slaves, shall ask from no one except Me. Whoever asks from Me, I shall respond to him. Whoever asks Me for something, I will give it to him. Whoever asks for my forgiveness, I shall forgive him. And this continues until the dawn” (Sahih Al-Jami).
Similarly, performing the Sunnan prayers, is also a way of gaining Allah’s pleasure and reward. These Sunnan prayers are two rakats before the dawn obligatory prayer, four before the noon obligatory prayer and four after it, two after the sunset prayer and  two after the night prayer and the witr prayer.
10- Being obedient and respectful to one’s parents: This is one of the greatest ways to attain Allah’s pleasure and reward. Allah mentions worshipping Him together with obeying one’s parents. Allah says in the Quran, “Your Lord has decreed that you worship none save Him, and that you show kindness to parents. If one of them or both of them attain to old age with you, say not ‘File’ unto them nor repulse them, but speak unto them a gracious word. And lower unto them the wing of submission through mercy and say, ‘My Lord, have mercy on them both as they did care for me when I was little'” (Al-Isra)11- Jihad in the way of Allah: A hadith of the Prophet peace be upon him says, “Being on guard in the way of Allah for one month is better than perpetual fasting for a year. Whoever dies while guarding in the way of Allah will be safe from the great frightening. And he will be provided his provisions, and smell the scent from paradise, and receive the reward of the one who guards until Allah resurrects him” (Sahih Al-Jami)12- Remembering Allah at all times: The prophet peace be upon him stated that Allah said, “I am as My slave thinks I am. I am with him when he makes mention of Me. If he makes mention of Me to himself. I make mention of him to Myself and if me makes mention of Me in an assembly, I make mention of him in an assembly better than it.” (Al-Bukhari).13- Speaking the truth and not fearing punishment of anyone: The prophet peace be upon him, “The leader of the martyrs is Hamza ibn Abdul Muttalib and a person who faces an unjust ruler and advises him to do good and he is killed because of his speech” (Sahih Al-Jami)14- Giving charity and spending in the way of Allah: Allah says in the Quran, “Those who spend their wealth by night and day, privately and publicity, verily their reward is with their Lord, and there shall no fear come upon them neither shall they grieve” (Al-Baqara 274). And Allah also says, “And spend of that which We have provided you before death comes to one of you and he says, ‘My Lord if only You would reprieve me for a little while, then I would give alms and be among the righteous.’ But Allah reprieves no soul when its term comes, and Allah is aware of what you do” (Al-Munafiqoon).15- Learning the beneficial knowledge: One should learn that knowledge that will benefit him in the Hereafter and act by it in order to be a good example for others. The authentic knowledge is the one that is based on Quran and Sunnah.Source: Al-Basheer Magazine

Nine Great Benefits of Reciting The Qur’an

Filed under: Islam — aurangzebawan @ 3:17 pm

Indeed to reflect on Allah’s verses is a form of worship that will draw one close to Allah Most High. This reflection is not a reckless and wandering one, rather it includes a study of the classical tafseer of the verses being pondered over, as this would fulfil Ibnul-Qayyim’s great advice, “Such as reflecting over a book which a person has memorised and he expounds it so that he may understand what its author intends by it.”  Indeed the Book of Allah is not a book like any other, it is the timeless Speech of Allah, not a created thing, the study guide for life and death and what comes after. Therefore it deserves a more careful study than anyone else’s speech. It necessitates that its reader return to the early narrations of those who witnessed its revelation and heard its explanation by the one deputed by Allah to rehearse and explain His Words to humanity (sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam). For if one would try to ponder over the meanings of the verses without having done this study, then surely the filth of the time that he lives in and his ignorance of the correct application and understanding that the early Muslims had would cause him to understand some things not intended by Allah Most High, and therefore he would go astray, thinking to be worshipping Allah. So every sincere Muslim who hopes to earn Allah’s Love breciting and reflecting over Allah’s Book, then let him hold tight to the meanings explained by the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam), and those taught by the companions and their immediate followers, and the early scholars of Islam.  So dear brother and sister Muslim! Know that reciting and pondering over the Book of Allah, devoting your time regularly to its study and implementation has tremendous benefits in this life and the Next, so let us now look to just a few of them to attach ourselves more firmly to Allah’s Majestic Words. Each benefit stands as enough of an encouragement to shun any laziness we have and dedicate ourselves to the Qur’an.   1 – Reading and reflecting over the Qur’an fulfils an Islamic duty.   Indeed the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) summarised this Religion with his statement: “The Religion is naseehah (sincerity)!” So then Tameem ibn Aws, may Allah be pleased with him, then said, “We asked, ‘To whom?’” He said: “To Allah, HIS BOOK, His Messenger, the leaders of the people, and their common folk.” [Muslim] The sincerity that is due to the Book of Allah includes its regular recitation, learning the rules of tajweed and reciting it beautifully, learning about its tafseer and the reasons for its revelation, affirming that it is the Truth, the perfect Speech of Allah and not part of the creation, honoring it and defending it, abiding by the orders and prohibitions found in it, teaching it and calling to it. [See Jaami’ul-’Uloom wal-Hikam of Ibn Rajab Al-Hambalee] So by reading and reflecting over the Qur’an, one fulfills an obligation and is rewarded for that. Upon fulfilling this obligation, the Qur’an then becomes a proof for him on the Day of Judgment! And that is our second benefit we will take by embracing this Noble Book…   2 – The Qur’an will be a proof for us on the Day of Judgment.   This is due to the statement of the Messenger: “And the Qur’an is a proof for you or against you.” [Muslim] So one of two things will occur with this proof, the Book of Allah. It will either be in your favor, a proof for you on the Day when you will need every single good deed, or it will be something standing against you, the very Speech of your Creator, a proof against you! Who could be saved from the terrors of that Day if Allah’s own Speech is against him?!?! Think carefully, dear Muslim brother or sister, about your position with the Qur’an! Are you neglecting it, contradicting it, being heedless of its orders and prohibitions, are you thinking deeply over it?! Will it be on your side on the Day of Judgment.?! O Allah! We ask you, by Your Glorious Speech and the rest of your beautiful Names and Attributes, to make the Qur’an a proof for us! O Allah! Don’t make the Qur’an a proof against us on that Day, and save us from the hellfire! For if Allah makes the Qur’an a proof in our favour on that Day, then it would also be an intercessor for us, when NO intercession will take place except by His Permission.   3 – The Qur’an will intercede for us on the Day of Judgment.  The proof: Aboo Umaamah relates that the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said: “Read the Qur’an, for verily it will come on the Day of Standing as an intercessor for its companions.” [Muslim]  4 – Your status in this life will be raised.   In Saheeh Muslim, we find a lovely story, about how a man from the people of Jannah, ‘Umar ibn Al-Khattaab, understood this principle. Some men came to question him during his khilaafah about the leadership of Makkah, they asked, “Who do you use to govern Makkah?” He said, “Ibn Abzaa.” They asked, “And who is Ibn Abzaa?” Umar replied, “A freed slave from those we freed.” They remarked, “You left a freed slave in charge of the people of the Valley (the noble tribes of the Quraysh)!?!?” So he answered them, “Verily he is a reader of the Book of Allah and is knowledgeable about the obligations of the Muslims. Haven’t you heard the statement of your Messenger: “Verily Allah raises some people by this Book and lowers others by it.”   5 – You will be from the best of the people.   ‘Uthmaan, may Allah be pleased with him, said that the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said: “The best of you are the ones who learn the Qur’an and teach it to others” [Al-Bukhari]   6 – There are ten rewards for each letter you recite from the Qur’an.   As an authentic hadith in At-Tirmithee proves: “Whoever reads a letter from the Book of Allah, he will have a reward. And that reward will be multiplied by ten. I am not saying that “Alif, Laam, Meem” is a letter, rather I am saying that “Alif” is a letter, “laam” is a letter and “meem” is a letter.” So increase your recitation of the Qur’an to gain these merits, and to gain the following merit as well.   7 – The reciters of the Qur’an will be in the company of the noble and obedient angels.  ‘Aa’ishah, may Allah be pleased with her, relates that the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said: “Verily the one who recites the Qur’an beautifully, smoothly, and precisely, he will be in the company of the noble and obedient angels. And as for the one who recites with difficulty, stammering or stumbling through its verses, then he will have TWICE that reward.” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]  So dear brother or sister Muslim, do not let the Shaytaan give you false excuses, such as “I am not an ‘Arab,” or “Its not my language.” This hadith is a firm proof against these whisperings. Dedicate yourself to the Book of Allah, whether you are an ‘Arab or not! The excuses have been eliminated and the pathway has been cleared for you to embrace the Book of Allah without holding back or offering excuses! And surely you will not hesitate to seek a teacher or a study circle for the Qur’an once you hear the last and perhaps greatest benefits of reading and contemplating over the Qur’an…   8 – Your position in Paradise is determined by the amount of Qur’an you memorize in this life! ‘Abdullaah ibn ‘Amr ibn Al-’Aas heard the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) saying: “It will be said to the companion of the Qur’an: Read and elevate (through the levels of the Paradise) and beautify your voice as you used to do when you were in the dunyaa! For verily, your position in the Paradise will be at the last verse you recite!” [Aboo Daawood and At-Tirmithee, saheeh]  9 – The Qur’an will lead you to Paradise!   The Prophet said: “The Qur’an is an intercessor, something given permission to intercede, and it is rightfully believed in. Whoever puts it in front of him, it will lead him to Paradise; whoever puts it behind him, it will steer him to the Hellfire.” [An authentic hadith found in At-Tabaraanee, on the authority of ‘Abdullaah ibn Mas’ood]  Know, dear brother or sister, that these nine benefits from the many benefits available can only be attained by a sincere commitment to the Book of Allah, not by a person’s mere statement, “I love the Qur’an, it’s beautiful.” Rather the heart must be sincerely attached to Allah’s Book and the limbs and tongue will follow in this attachment. You must know that we only mentioned a few of the numerous benefits of reading and reflecting over the Qur’an. There are many benefits that await your reading in the Qur’an and books of hadith, like the chapter of the Qur’an that will argue on your behalf in the grave, and that it is a physical healing, a source of rest and relaxation for your heart, among many other things. And Allah knows best.  (Taken from Look 4 Islam – Taken from Al-Haramain.Org Newsletter Vol 5 Issue 7)

What kind of Democracy or Independance is this

Filed under: Politics — aurangzebawan @ 3:13 pm

Once upon a time there was Taliban in Afghanistan. In there days “OPIUM”  was banned in Afghanistan and none of us hear about opium in Afghanistan, and now we are hearing about bumber crop of opium in Afghanistan.

What a shame for lovers of Democracy and American “BUSH”.

Here is the report of UN 

Opium production in Afghanistan has hit a record $3 billion this year, accounting for more than 90% of the world’s illegal output, according to a new report from the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). Production is concentrated mainly in the strife-torn south of the country, where the Taliban—who banned poppy cultivation when they were in power—now profit from the trade, the report alleges. The reports says the area under opium cultivation rose to 193,000 hectares from 165,000 in 2006, while the harvest soared by more than a third to 8,200 tons from 6,100 tons. The amount of Afghan land used for growing opium was larger than the total under coca cultivation in Latin America, the report says.

The report also found that the number of opium-free provinces in the centre and north of the country more than doubled from six to 13, revealing an intensification of markedly divergent trends between the north and south.

In the centre and north, where the government has increased its authority and presence, cultivation is dropping. In Balkh province cultivation collapsed from 7,200 hectares last year to zero. By contrast, 80% of opium poppies were grown in a handful of southern provinces along the border with Pakistan.

In Helmand, cultivation rose by 48% to 102,770 hectares. With a population of 2.5 million, Helmand has become the world’s biggest source of illicit drugs, surpassing the output of entire countries like Colombia (coca), Morocco (hashish) and Burma (opium).

Thats why we hate liers like “BUSH”.
