Haajar (alaihas salaam) was chosen to be the wife of Nabi Ebrahim (alaihis salaam) and the mother of Nabi Isma’eel (alaihis salaam). Her obedience to her husband, her life of sacrifice, her staying all alone with her suckling son in the barren lands of Makkah, her full trust in Allah Ta’ala, her running between Safa and Marwa were all greatly loved by Allah Ta’ala. Hence, up to this day we all enjoy the blessing of Zam-Zam, part of our Hajj and Umrah is the seven rounds between Safa and Marwa which remind us of Haajar (alaihas salaam)’s love and obedience to Allah Ta’ala. To crown it all, the last and most beloved messenger of Allah Ta’ala, Muhammed (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) was chosen to be from the progeny of her son Isma’eel (alaihis salaam).

Nabi Loot (alaihis salaam) was amongst those personalities who were divinely selected to receive prophethood and guide their nations to Allah Ta’ala. He was sent to a people who had become void of all natural and instinctive tendencies. They refused to take heed to the repeated calls of guidance given to them by Nabi Loot (alaihis salaam) and their depraved behaviour was worse than that of even animals. They became inhuman, losing all moral values. Nabi Loot (alaihis salaam) continued to advise them for a long time. Eventually when they transgressed all limits, they “invited” such a punishment which was to be as severe as their crime.

It is an established fact that TV programs and movies in general, especially scary movies, (apart from being impermissible) can have a lasting effect on one’s mind. The devastating effects of these movies can be understood from the experiences of the viewers. According to one study, a wide range of symptoms were reported, including crying, screaming, trembling, nausea, increased heart rate, feeling of paralysis, shortness of breath and fear of losing control. Some people even become suicidal after watching certain movies, whilst others become rebellious to their parents.

At least Two Quraans a Year

When last were we blessed with the complete recitation of the Quraan Majeed? Among the rights of the Quraan Majeed is to complete at least two khatams a year. We want everyone to fulfill our rights, let us start by fulfilling the right of the Quraan Majeed. Let not a day of purity pass by without us having recited a portion of the Quraan Majeed. If on any day we are extremely tired or busy, then the least we can do is to open the Quraan Majeed and recite a few lines. A day passed without reciting the Quraan Majeed is like a gold chain with a link missing. That chain is incomplete and cannot be used.

Books Alone Cannot Make Us!

Knowledge and books alone have not made any nation or changed any nation. People make people; books do not make a man. For instance if the Quraan Majeed, the noble book of Allah Ta’ala which contains the entire code of life for a Muslim, is taught to one by a Jew or a Christian, then the effect of the Quraan Majeed will not fall on one. Instead the effect of the Jewish or Christian teacher will fall on one. From this it is apparent to us that the actual teacher of mankind is man himself and books serve as the means to attain knowledge. Today we hope to become the best of Muslims by being content on books and websites alone. Many people, who set out to study Islam on their own, started off with the sincere intention of rectifying themselves. However, they soon started trying to “rectify Islam” due to their ignorance. Therefore we will always be in need of the guidance of our pious Ulama in studying Deen and serving Deen.
