Thought share about the application of Islamic belief and ethics in our modern pluralistic society. The “How”, for those who understand “Why”. And the “Why” for those who need to understand the reason.

The International Space Station travels at 17,100 miles per hour. That means it orbits Earth every 90 minutes—so it sees a sunrise every 90 minutes. Thus, every day, the residents of the ISS witness 16 sunrises and 16 sunsets.

Sincerity is the foundation

Indeed when Allahﷻ‎ intends good for a slave, He strips away sight of his good deeds from his heart, and their mention from his tongue, and causes him to become preoccupied with his sins, and they continue to be before his eyes until he enters Jannah.

(Ibn al-Qayyim)

 

Kushairi relates :A person wanted to test the Akhlaq of Shaikh Abu Othman Al Heeri and so he invited him for a meal. When the Shaikh arrived he said to him, “I don’t know you. Who are you?” The Shaikh went away. The man then went behind him and called him back. But when he returned he did the same. He did this five times at the end of which he apologised and said that he was testing the teacher. He also praised the Shaikh for his patience. The Shaikh said to him, “Please don’t praise me because you only praising what any dog will do. You call him he comes you shoo him away he goes.”

Our actions define us

On the authority of Abu Sa’eed al-Khudree (RA) who said: I heard Rasoolullahﷺ say, “Whosoever sees an evil, let him change it with his hand; and if he is not able to do so, then [let him change it] with his tongue; and if he is not able to do so, then with his heart (hold it as hateful in his heart) — and that is the weakest of faith.” [Muslim]

The power of action

The True Meaning of Tajwid

A man once came to Sulaim ibn Isa and said:

O Abu Isa! I have come to recite [the Quran] to you correctly (I.e. with tajwid).

Abu Sulaim replied:

My son, I once saw someone come to Hamza al Zayyat (the leader of all the reciters in Kufa) for the same thing. At this point Hamza wept and said:

My son, correctness lies in taking care [to live by] the Qur’an. If you do this you will have achieved correctness. This is the true meaning of correctness.

(Source: Ma’rifat al Qurra’ al Kibar by Dhahabi, Vol 1 Pg 139-140)

جاء رجل لسُليم بن عيسى فقال : يا أبا عيسى جئت لأقرأ عليك بالتحقيق ( أي ضبط مخارج الحروف وصفاتها والعناية بالألفاظ والرسم ) فقال له سُليم : يابن أخي شهدت حمزة الزيات وهو إمام القراء في الكوفة ، وأتاه رجل في مثل هذا فبكى ، وقال يابن أخي إنما التحقيق في صَوْن القرآن ، فإن صنته ، فقد حققته ، هذا هو التحقيق .
