Praise be to Allah, the Kind the Ever Caring (1), the Able, the Merciful, the Owner of the dominion. It is who answers the prayers of those in urgent need, who heals His slaves whom He tries with illness.

Praise is due to Him for His great blessings and generosity.

We testify that there is no God but Allah, alone without partners, and we testify that Muhammad is His slave and messenger, whom He has sent as a mercy to all mankind.

May Allah’s peace and blessings be upon Prophet Muhammad, his kin, his sahaabah (companions) and he dedicated followers.

Regrettably, some Muslims have neglected ruqyas. Others may have never thought about them at all. They may even see them as nonsense (2). However, the faithful believe that ruqyas are a worthy means of immense benefit for healing all physical and non-physical illnesses. Shari’ah statements confirm the permissibility of seeking healing by Qur’anic recitations and the Prophet’s established prayers. For example, Allah says, “…Say: It [the Qur’an) is for those who believe [in it] guidance and a healing.” [41/44] Also, according to the Hadith, “When Allah’s Messenger became ill, Gibreel (Angel Gabriel) would do (this) ruqya unto him: In the name of Allah, may He grant you healing. May He cure you of all illnesses, of the evil of whoever envies you, and of evil eyes.”(3)

Evidently, the ruqya literature has wide range of ruqyas. Basically, if a ruqya is permissible and it established to be beneficial, it is used. For example, some rqaais (performers of ruqya) use short surahs (Qur’anic chapters), such as Surat Al-Faatihah. Others may use a long one, such as Surat Al-Baqarah. Also, a selection of surahs can be used, e.g. Al-Faathiah plus Al-Falaq and An-Naas. Some may even use only one Ayah, e.g. Ayat Al-Kursi. Sometimes, water, oil or honey is used. The raaqi recites the ruqya unto clean water to be drunk by the patient, unto oil to be rubbed onto the body, or unto honey to be eaten.
In all the above-mentioned examples, the raaqi uses a permissible ruqya which he believes to be beneficial; and suitable for a Particular patient. This is based on the Prophet’s saying, “Let me see your ruqyas. Ruqyas are valid provided that they are void of shirk.”(4) The Prophet also says. “I see no harm (in ruqyas). Let whoever can benefit his fellow Muslim do so.”(5)

Evidently, some imams among the salaf (early righteous Muslims) used for ruqya Ayahs that had not been designated for ruqya earlier. For example, as mentioned by Ibn-Alqayyim in Attib Annabawi (Prophetic Medicine), for women having difficult labour, Imam Ahmad used to write as ruqya on white paper or something clean the following supplications, from the Hadith and the Qur’an:

– “There is no God but Allah, the Almighty, the Forbearing. Blessed be Allah, the Lord of the Glorious Throne. Praise be to Allah, Lord of the worlds.” (6)
– “On the day when they see that which they are promised (it will seem to them) as though they had tarried but an hour of daylight. A clear message. Shall any be destroyed save evil living folk?” [69/35]
– On the day when they behold it, it will be as if they had but tarried for an evening or the morn thereof.” [79/46]
According to Ibn-Alqayyim, some the salaf (early Muslims) – Ibn-Taymiyyah among them – mentioned that Imam Ahmad had written that ruqya for several cases of difficult delivery.

It would be impracticable to detail salaf statements with respect to the ruqyas they based on ijtihad. Therefore, not only have I selected the Ayahs specified by evidence as ruqya, but have also included other prayers believed to be beneficial for the treatment of sihr (witchcraft), possession, the evil eye and other illnesses, physical as well as non-physical.

Governing Yourself And Your Family

Governing Yourself And Your Family According To What Allah Has Revealed

The subject matter of this work has preoccupied and continues to preoccupy the minds of our Nation’s members; yet in spite of this preoccupation, many people lack a correct understanding regarding it. Because the issues that fall under the subject matter of this work are so important, I decided to write this work, through which I hope to make plain the way to live and act according to what Allah has revealed.

Contrary to what some may think, this work is relevant not just to leaders, but to every individual as well. Each and every human being is a leader and chief of sorts, for just as a ruler is responsible for the welfare of his state and citizens, each one of us is responsible for his flock – the members of his family and, more importantly, his own self…

Today, we as a Nation are afflicted with widespread ignorance. The Nations of the world gather against us, just as fellow eaters gather upon their dish. They use every tool at their disposal against us – their wealth, their strength, their technical advancement, their strategy, their deception, and their disbelief. We are in such a state of peril that it is senseless to imagine that a single group among us can put a stop to their constant onslaught.

Our hearts must unite; we must cooperate; we must have correct knowledge; we must work productively; we must be patient; we must make sacrifices; we must give; we must fight our own desires; and we must be sincere. Continue reading

A plethora of parenting books on the market these days covers every aspect of dealing with your children. From the terrible twos to the troublesome teens, you will have no problem finding multitudes of books claiming to point you in the right direction when it comes to raising your children.

Whether you’re aiming to raise a baby Einstein, or just looking for some hints on how to handle an unruly tyke or teen, you will no doubt find plenty of advice.

Nurturing Eeman in Children, however, addresses an aspect of child-rearing that is vitally important, and is not touched upon in the mainstream selections that we are so familiar with. In her book, Dr. Hamdan clearly and in no uncertain terms explains the importance of instilling in our children a strong connection to their Creator and a love for the religion that He has chosen for us and them. From this book, you will learn the what, why, and the how of raising a righteous and faithful Muslim child.

The focus on this book will be on nurturing the next generation and installing Islamic values and eeman (faith) in them from a very young age. Those who have taken the remedy from the time of birth will find it less difficult or strange to continue it throughout their lifetime. It will naturally flow and progress as the person develops and grows through each phase of life. In actuality, children have within them a very special seed known as the fitrah. The fitrah is the innate, inborn tendency to know Allah., to believe in the oneness of Allah , and to develop eeman. The seeds of eeman are already planted and only need to be nurtured lovingly in order to grow beautiful, flowering plants.  For this reason, the book in entitled Nurturing Eeman In Children.

An Explanation Of Riyadh Al-Saliheen From The Words Of The Master Of The Messengers

https://islamfuture.files.wordpress.com/2010/06/an-explanation-of-riyadh-al-saliheen.jpg

Imam Nawawi; Shaykh Muhammad ibn Salih al-Uthaymeen
Language: English | Format: PDF | Pages: 307 | Size: 12.5 MB

A comprehensive explanation and commentary of the first 24 hadith of Imam al-Nawawi’s classic compilation, Riyadh al-Saliheen.

Verily all Praise is for Allah, we praise Him, we seek His assistance, and we appeal for His forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah from the evil of our souls, and from the evil of our actions. Whosoever Allah guides, there is none to lead him astray, and whosoever Allah leads astray, there is none to guide him.

I bear witness that there is no deity worthy of being worshipped except Allah alone, without [any form] of associate. I testify that Muhammad is His Slave and Messenger, Seal of the Prophets, and Master of the Messengers. He is His proof upon His entire creation.

Allah the Most High sent him with the True Religion and the Straight Path. He fashioned his Vocation, universal and absolute until the Day of Judgement. May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him and his family.

Verily Allah the Exalted, the Most High, sent His Messenger Muhammad (PBUH) with the Guidance, and revealed upon him al-Qur’an. A complete constitution for this eternal Ummah, until Allah inherits the earth and that which is upon it.

He bestowed upon him the interpretation of al-Qur’an and something comparable to it, with it.

For the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) is composed of statement and action, it is derived from the Book of Allah, and is indicative of its meaning.

The Companions of the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) promptly seized the Noble Book and the Purified Sunnah, safeguarding, studying and recording [the two sources of revelation].

Allah obligated Himself the task of protecting and preserving His Honoured Book. He appointed for the Prophetic tradition, those who would protect and devote their attention to it, from the time of the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) to our time now, and until Allah inherits the earth and that which is upon it.

By the providence/ of Allah, the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) has occupied the platform of patronage and concern by the Scholars in every age and land. Hence, they have completed the preservation, recording and codification [of the Sunnah] [by means of] the works of Musnad, the authentic compilations, the works of Sunan, and the Hadeeth based lexicons. From amongst those who have participated in this noble service of the Sunnah and it’s codification is Imam Abu Zakariyyah Yahya ibn SharafAl-Nawawee Al-Dimashqee [631-676 H]. He is reckoned to be amongst the exemplary and distinguished personalities of the seventh century. He authored numerous books of great benefit in miscellaneous subjects, ubiquitously accredited with praise and eulogy for their immense value.

Accordingly, the Scholars devoted themselves to their study, deriving benefit, and transmitting from them by virtue of their utility. Amongst the most ubiquitous in presence and apparent in circulation, between the Scholars’ and the general populace, is the book [entitled] Riyadh al- Saliheen. Continue reading

Mother’s Day A Historical Overview And The Scholars’ Rulings On This Holiday

https://islamfuture.files.wordpress.com/2010/06/mother-s-day-a-historical-overview.jpg

Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid
Language: English | Format: PDF | Pages: 29 | Size: 1 MB

Praise be to Allaah and blessings and peace be upon the Messenger of Allah.

The Prophet (PBUH) told us that his Ummah (nation) would follow the previous nations, the Jews, Christians and Persians, but this was undoubtedly not praise for their actions, and rather it is by way of condemnation and a warning. It was narrated from Abu Sa’eed (RA) that the Prophet (PBUH) said:

“You will certainly follow the ways of those who came before you, handspan by handspan, cubit by cubit, until even if they entered the hole of a lizard, you will do so too.” We asked, “O Messenger of Allaah, (do you mean) the Jews and the Christians?” He said, “Who else?”
(Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 3269; Muslim, 2669).

It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah (RA) that the Prophet (PBUH) said:

“The Hour will not begin until my Ummah follows in the footsteps of those who came before it, handspan by handspan, cubit by cubit.” It was asked, “O Messenger of Allah, like the Persians and Romans?” He said, “Those are the people?”
(Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 6888).

The ignorant among this Ummah, and the innovators and heretics have followed the previous nations, the Jews, Christians and Persians, in their Beliefs, ways, manners and dress. Our concern here is to point out in these days their following and imitation of them through the innovation of “Mother’s Day” or “Family Day”, which is a day that the Christians innovated to honour mothers, or so they claim. This then Became a day that was venerated, when government departments would be shut and people would get in touch with their mothers or send them gifts and loving messages. But when the day was over, things would go back to the way they were, with people being cut off from their mothers and disobeying them.

What is strange is that the Muslims would feel a need to imitate them in such ways, when Allaah has commanded them to honour their mothers and has forbidden them to disobey them, and has made the reward for that (for obeying them) the highest status. Continue reading

The author has exposed shortcomings and errors of many among us who don not preserve the rights of their parents. Continue reading
