Muslims Religious War – (Al-Jihad)

Muslims Religious War – (Al-Jihad) Sayings of the Holy Messenger (Peace be upon Him) 70.  Sayyidina ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbas (Radi-ALLAHO-An-ho) The fire of Hell will not touch two eyes, one that weeps from fear of Allah and the other that has spent the night as sentry for the sake of Allah. (Tirmizi, Targheeb) 71.  Sayyidina ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar (Radi-ALLAHO-An-ho) May I not reveal to you a night that is superior to the Laylatal-Qadr (Night of Power)? (it is the night) when someone stands on sentry duty (during Jihad) on a land where there is fear of the enemy and the risk of not being able to return to one’s family. (Haakim, Targheeb) 72.  Sayyidina ‘Ali bin ‘Abu Taalib (Radi-ALLAHO-An-ho) If anyone contributes towards Jihad in the cause of Allah and himself stays at home then against every dirham that he gives he will get reward for seven hundred dirham.

FIFTH PILLAR OF ISLAM - HAJJ AND ‘UMRAH Sayings of the Holy Messenger (Peace be upon Him) 62.  Sayyidina Abu Hurayrah (Radi-ALLAHO-An-ho)        When someone performs Hajj and during the performance does not do anything indecent or anything sinful then, he returns so (purified and absolved) of his sins as on the day his mother gave him birth. (Tabarani, Targheeb) 63.  Sayyidina Abdullah bin Mas’ood (Radi-ALLAHO-An-ho)        Perform Hajj and ‘Umrah in succession because they remove poverty and sins as a blacksmith’s bellows remove impurities from iron, gold and silver. As for the Hajj that is accepted, the reward is nothing less than Paradise.   (Tirmizi, Targheeb)

64.  Sayyidina Ibn ‘Abbas (Radi-ALLAHO-An-ho)        Try to discharge the (obligation of) Hajj as early as possible because none of you knows what is going to happen.

FOURTH PILLAR OF ISLAM - FASTING and EID

FOURTH PILLAR OF ISLAM - FASTING and EID Sayings of the Holy Messenger (Peace be upon Him) 55.  Abu Hurayrah (Radi-ALLAHO-An-ho)        Allah has said that every deed of the son of Aadam is for himself except fasting which is for Me, and I will give its reward. Fasts are shields (protection from punishment). Thus when any of you is fasting, he must not indulge in obscenity, nor shout; if anyone speaks to him in a vulgar manner or fights with him then he must tell him that he is fasting. By Him in whose Hand is Muhammad’s life, the odour in the mouth of the fasting person is better to Allah than the fragrance of musk. There will be two moments of happiness for the fasting person-one at the time of breaking the fast because of that and the other when he will meet his Lord and he will feel glad because of his fasting. (Bukhari, Targheeb) 56.  Sayyidina Abdullah bin ‘Amr (Radi-ALLAHO-An-ho)        Fasting and the Qur’an will intercede for the worshipper on the Day of Resurrection. Fasts will s…

(Tabaraani, Targheeb) 43.  Sayyidina Hasan (Radi-ALLAHO-An-ho)        Protect your wealth through Zakaah, treat your sick patients through Sadaqah and face the turmoil of difficulties through supplications and heartfelt pleas to Allah. (Marassel, Abu Dawood, Targheeb) 44.  Sayyidina Abu Hurayrah (Radi-ALLAHO-An-ho)        If a person to whom Allah has given property does not pay Zakaah, his property will come to him on the Day of Resurrection as a bald snake with two black spots over its eyes. The snake will be put round this person’s neck and it will seize his jaws and say, “I am your property, I am your treasure.” (Bukhari, Muslim, Targheeb) 45.  Sayyidina A…
