A couple were once seated for meals. Suddenly a knock was heard at the door from a beggar standing outside. The husband in a fit of rage approached the beggar, scolded him and chased him away. As time passed it so happened that this wealthy man became poor. He lost his entire empire and eventually even ended up divorcing his wife.

The Two Most Beloved Things


Last Updated on Thursday, 24 January 2013 09:06

Generally the two things that are most beloved to a person are his/her life and wealth. Hence the more we sacrifice our life and our wealth for Allah Ta’ala, the more we will become beloved to Allah Ta’ala. For example making wudhu on a cold winter morning, or waking up for fajr by breaking our sweet deep sleep in the short summer nights are actions of sacrifice which are greatly valued in the court of Allah Ta’ala. If our wealth is not spent in avenues pleasing to Allah Ta’ala, it will be wasted in channels that will please Shaytaan, the devil.

A Real Investment

Encourage one’s children, grandchildren and other youngsters in the family to become a Hafiz of the Quraan Majeed. Imagine if through our encouragement someone becomes a Hafiz! We will continue to have a share in that person’s recitation of the Quraan. Furthermore, once they have completed Hifz, encourage them to become Ulama, and we will secure our share in the lessons they teach, the talks they deliver and the services they offer. Unfortunately almost everyone is chasing after the degrees of the world while very few are acquiring the knowledge of Deen. Perhaps less than one percent dedicate themselves to Deen. Therefore the virtue and the value of the knowledge of Deen must be impressed on the young impressionable minds. While acquiring some degree within the limits of Shariah is permissible, this is not something to be highly impressed with and to be thrilled over. The real investment is to make one’s child a Hafiz and Aalim. This will help us in this world, the grave and the Hereafter.

One night while Ameerul Mu’mineen Umar bin Khattab (radiyallahu anhu) was doing his rounds in Madinah Munawwarah, he leaned against a wall and overheard a unique conversation between a young girl and her mother. The mother instructed the girl to add water to the milk that was to be sold the next day. The girl replied: “O my mother! Aren’t you aware of the order that Ameerul Mu’mineen has passed today?” The mother inquired as to what was the order. The daughter replied: “He ordered someone to announce that water should not be added to milk (since this was deception).” The mother said to her: “O my daughter! Just add the water since you are in such a place where neither Umar can see you nor the one who has made the announcement on his behalf.” The daughter replied: “O my beloved mother! I cannot be so dishonest to obey him in open and disobey him in private.”

The Day of ‘Aashura

History of Aashuraa

Prior to the Hijrah, Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) and the Sahabah observed the fast of ‘Aashuraa in Makkah Mukarramah as this conformed to the sharee’ah of Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam). Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) migrated to Madeenah Munawwarah in the month of Rabee’ul Awwal. The following year (2 A.H.), in the month of Muharram, He (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) witnessed the Jews of Madinah Munawwarah fasting. Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) inquired from them as to why they were observing the fast on that day. They exclaimed that it was on that day that Allah Ta’ala delivered Moosa (alaihis salaam) and the Bani Israaeel from the tyranny and oppression of Fir’oun and his people, and Allah Ta’ala destroyed Fir’oun and his army.
