A Month of Endless blessings

July 31, 2011 By: Mohammad Rafique Etsame Category: Current Islamic Articles

By M.R.E

Ramazan-ul-Mubarak is the most sacred and the holy month of the Muslim calendar. It brings good fortune and endless blessings of Allah Almighty. It is a month of forbearance that's rewards is only Heaven. (Bokhari) Act of  fasting has been obliged in all of the Devine laws before Islam and its main purpose is to make the man pious and God-fearing as mentioned in the Holy Qura, "O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you, even as it was prescribed for those before you, that ye may ward off (evil),(The Cow: 183). The Holy Prophet (PBUH) said that the first ten days of Ramazan contain the bounty of Allah , second ten days consist of absolution, and the third ten days declare the salvation from the Hell  to those who keep fasting. (Bokhari, Mishkat-ul-Masabeeh )
He (PBUH) said that the former sins forgiven of the man who keeps fasting with faith and a sense of accountability. And when the first night of Ramazan falls, an  announcement made on behalf of Allah that He Loves him who loves He and He meets him who try to meet He, and Allah will forgive him who asks forit.Then Allah Orders the twin recording angels to write only virtues and not to write evils and to rub off their former sins .(Zubda-tul-Waizeen)
A distinctive feature of Ramazan is that the Holy Quran was revealed in this month from the "Lauh-e-Mahfooz" to the first sky. Whence, it was revealed on the Holy Prophet (PBUH) in the period of 23 years according to the need of the occasions. Allah Orddains," The month of Ramazan in which was revealed the Qur'an, a guidance for mankind, and clear proofs of the guidance and the criterion (of right and wrong). And whosoever of you is present, let him fast the month, and whosoever of you is sick or on a journey, (let him fast the same) number of other days. (The Cow:185)
Qur'an is an authentic source of Islamic dogmas, worships, affairs and lays the foundation stone of Islamic legislation. It reveals an abridged outline for individual and social life and guides to all aspects of life as a principle. Recitation of theHoly quran gives the mental and spiritual peace and tranquility.
The Holy Prophet (PBUH) said that when the month of Ramazan falls all of the evil design, Satans and Jinns  tightened in chains and doors of Hell closed, and a voice from the Heaven calls "O ye who committing evils stop yourself in committing and the well wisher! Increase yourself in virtues. And a large number of the people deserving to the Hell. Freed every night. (Tirmadhi, Nasai, Ibn-e-Maja) Ramzan-ul-Mubark has begun. We should count for such a blessed month and keep fasting

Keys to Happiness

July 18, 2011 By: Mohammad Rafique Etsame Category: Current Islamic Articles

Happiness is the only goal on earth that all people without exception are seeking to attain. Believers and unbelievers alike seek to be happy, but each party is using different methods.

However, only believers can achieve genuine happiness. All forms of happiness attained without a firm belief in God, the Almighty, are mere illusions.

The following are tips for the attainment of happiness:

1. Know that if you do not live within the scope of today, your thoughts will be scattered, your affairs will become confused, and your anxiety will increase. These realities are explained in the following hadith:

{When you are in the evening, do not expect to see themorning, and when you are in the morning, do not expect to see the evening.} [Saheeh Al-Bukhari]

2. Forget the past and all that it contained. Being absorbed in things that are past and gone is sheer lunacy.

3. Do not be preoccupied with the future because the future is in the world of the unseen; do not let it bother you until it comes.

4. Do not be shaken by criticism; instead, be firm. Be sure that in proportion to your worth, the level of people's criticism rises. Also, make good use of criticism in discovering your shortcomings and faults, and let it drive you toward self-improvement.

5. Have certain faith in God and perform good deeds; these are the ingredients that makeup a good and happy life.

6. If you desire peace, tranquility, and comfort, you can find it all in the remembrance of God.

7. You should know with certainty that everything that happens, occurs in accordance with the divine decree.

8. Do not expect gratitude from anyone.

9. Train yourself to be prepared for the worst eventuality.

10. Perhaps what has happened is in your best interest, even though you may not comprehend how that can be so.

11. Everything that is decreed for the believer is the best for him.

 

12. Enumerate the blessings of God and be thankful for them.

 

13. Remember that you are better off than many others.

 

14. Relief comes from one hour to the next. Indeed, with each difficulty there is relief.

 

15. In both times of hardship and ease, one should turn to supplication and prayer, either patiently contented or thankful.

 

16. Calamities should strengthen your heart and reshape your outlook in a positive way.

 

17. Do not let trivialities be the cause of your destruction.

 

18. Always remember that your Lord is Oft-Forgiving.

 

19. Assume an easy-going attitude and avoid anger.

 

20. Life is bread, water, and shade; so do not be perturbed by a lack of any other material thing.

 

{And in the heaven is your providence and that which you are promised.} [Quran 51:22]

 

21. Most evil that is supposed to happen never occurs.

 

22. Look at those who have more afflictions and be grateful that you have less.

 

23. Bear in mind the fact that God loves those who endure trials with steadfastness, so seek to be one of them.

 

24. Constantly repeat those supplications that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) taught us to say during times of hardship.

 

25. Work hard at something that is productive, and cast off idleness.

 

26. Do not spread rumors and do not listen to them. If you hear a rumor inadvertently, do not believe it.

 

27. Know that your malice and your striving to seek revenge are much more harmful to your health than they are to your antagonist.

 

28. The hardships that befall you atone for your sins, if you endure with patience.
