All Praise is due to Allah. We praise Him and seek for His assistance. We seek His refuge from the evil of our own souls and from our misdeeds. No one can mislead whoever Allah guides and no one can guide whoever Allah causes to go astray.

To proceed, the Messenger of Allah, (Sallallaahu alayhi wasalaam) is indeed, the leader of mankind; this is an Islamic reality upon which all Muslims agree. And this agreement is a great blessing for this Ummah (nation). In this, all praise and favour belong to Allah.

There is no consideration for the opinion of some who deviated and believed that some Imams are greater than the Messenger of Allah, (Sallallaahu alayhi wasalaam) in terms of knowledge and other qualities. There are scholars who are capable of reinterpreting of proving the falsity of all narrations recorded in these books.

Clarity of the status of the Messenger of Allah, (Sallallaahu alayhi wasalaam), and that he is the owner of the Great Intercession, the visited Fountain and the exalted position in the world and in the Hereafter, are facts that no one can deny.

The Blessings of the Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu alayhi wasalaam) extended to the members of his household and his companions, May Allah be pleased with all of them.

Therefore, members of the Prophets Household enjoy great status. There are many Qur’anic verses and numerous Ahadith that supported this. These evidences include the mention of those among them who kept the company of the Messenger of Allah, (Sallallaahu alayhi wasalaam) as they include the mention of their offspring. They also explain their virtues and excellence. Continue reading

All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the worlds, and may Allah exalt the mention of His Prophet, and render him and his household safe and secure from all derogatory things.

I sincerely congratulate you for the guidance Allah has granted and favored you with. I ask Allah that He keeps us and all Muslims firm upon this great religion until we meet Him, without changing anything from it and not being put through trials.

Indeed a true Muslim feels great joy when someone accepts Islam, for he wishes well for others and wants them to live as he does himself: a life of comfort and delight with spiritual joy and mental stability. This can only result from implementing the teachings of Islam. Allah (SWT) says:

(Whoever does good whether male or female and he is a believer, We will most certainly make him live a happy life, and We will most certainly give them their reward for the best of what they did.) (16:97)

This is because Allah (SWT) clarified the condition of those who do not believe in Allah and what He revealed. Allah (SWT) says:

(And whoever turns away from My Reminder, verily, for him is a life of hardship, and We shall raise him up blind on the Day of Resurrection. He will say, ‘O my Lord! Why have you raised me up blind, while [before] I had sight.’ He [Allah] will say, ‘Like this Our Aayaat [proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.] came to you, but you disregarded them, and so this Day, you will be neglected.) (20:124-126)

A true Muslim wishes that they live happily forever in the Hereafter, whose delights are never-ending. Allah (SWT) says:

(Verily those who believe and do righteous deeds shall have the Gardens of Firdaws (the highest level in Heaven) for their entertainment. * Therein they shall dwell [forever]. No desire will they have for removal there from.) (18:107-108)

The end is inevitable: either eternal happiness or eternal remorse. Whoever dies upon disbelief – and refuge is sought in Allah – he will enter Hellfire for eternity. Allah (SWT) says:

(Verily those who disbelieve from the people of the Book and the polytheists will abide in the Fire of Hell. They are the worst of creatures.)
