To bear witness that there is none worthy of worship than Allah and that Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah
be upon him) is the Messenger of Allah.
Muslim is one against whose tongue and hands other Muslims are secure, and an Emigrant is one who departs from what Allah
has forbidden." (Bukhari) "
Narrated 'Umar bin Al-Khattab:
I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "The reward of deeds depends upon the intentions and every person will get
the reward according to what he has intended. So whoever emigrated for worldly benefits or for a woman to marry, his emigration
was for what he emigrated for."
I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "If Allah wants to do good to a person, He makes him comprehend the religion.
I am just a distributor, but the grant is from Allah. (And remember) that this nation (true Muslims) will keep on following
Allah's teachings strictly and they will not be harmed by any one going on a different path till Allah's order (Day of Judgment)
Narrated Abu Musa:
The Prophet said, "The example of guidance and knowledge with which Allah has sent me is like abundant rain
falling on the earth, some of which was fertile soil that absorbed rain water and brought forth vegetation and grass in abundance.
(And) another portion of it was hard and held the rain water and Allah benefited the people with it and they utilized it for
drinking, making their animals drink from it and for irrigation of the land for cultivation. (And) a portion of it was barren
which could neither hold the water nor bring forth vegetation (then that land gave no benefits). The first is the example
of the person who comprehends Allah's religion and gets benefit (from the knowledge) which Allah has revealed through me (the
Prophets and learns and then teaches others. The last example is that of a person who does not care for it and does not take
Allah's guidance revealed through me (He is like that barren land.)"
Allah's Apostle said, "From among the portents of the Hour are (the following):
1. Religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of Religious learned men).
2. (Religious) ignorance will prevail.
3. Drinking of Alcoholic drinks (will be very common).
4. There will be prevalence of open illegal sexual intercourse
Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet said, "(Religious) knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars) ignorance
(in religion) and afflictions will appear; and Harj will increase." It was asked, "What is Harj, O Allah's Apostle?" He replied
by beckoning with his hand indicating "killing." (Fateh-al-Bari Page 192, Vol. 1)
And who will turn away from the religion of Ibrahim (Abraham), except he who
befools himself. Verily, We chose and purified him in this world, and in the hereafter he will be among the righteous. When
his Lord said to him: “Submit”; he replied: “I submit to the Lord of the Worlds.” And Ibrahim left
this very legacy to his sons. And so did Yaquob (Jacob), saying: “O my sons, indeed Allah has chosen this religion for
you; so let not death overtake you except in the state of complete submission (to Allah’s will).” [Quran, Chapter 2:130-132]
Were you present when death approached Yaquob (Jacob), when he said to his sons: “What will you worship after me?” They replied:
“We will worship your God, the God of your forefathers - Ibrahim (Abraham) and Ismael (Ishmael) and Is’haque (Isaac)
- the One (and Only) God, and to Him do we submit ourselves.” Those were a people who have passed away, they shall have
a reward for what they did, and you will have for what you do, and you will not be questioned about their actions. [Quran, Chapter 2:133-134]
How can you deny Allah? Did He not give you life, when you were without life?
And then He will cause you to die, and then restore you to life, and then to Him you shall be made to return. It is He Who
created for you all that the earth contains, then He proceeded towards the sky, and He perfected them into seven heavens,
and He has complete knowledge of all things. [Quran,
Blessed be He in Whose hand is the sovereignty, and He has power over
all things. Who has created life and death, that He may test you which of you is best in conduct; and He is the All-Mighty,
the Oft-Forgiving. [Chapter 67:1-2]
