The Minor Resurrection (What Happens After Death) : In the Light of the Qur’an & Sunnah

About the Book: What happens after death? When will the end of the world be? Are we really living in the “last days”? These are questions which concern everyone, no matter what his or her background. Many have tried to answer these questions, producing theories that range from the fanciful to the nihilistic. But man-made notions cannot answer questions about matters which man has no way of finding out by himself.

In these as in so many other issues, Islam brings us answers. Surely the One Who gives life and takes it away, is the One Who is the best to inform us of what happens after death. The One Who has created this universe and mankind is the best to tell us about when this world will come to an end and mankind will be called for Judgment. He has informed us about these matters, in His Book and through His Prophet (pbuh).

In this book, Dr. ‘Umar S. al- Ashqar examines all these issues from the point of view of the Qur’an and Sunnah. He looks at issues of death and what happens to a person’s soul after death, including the questioning of the angels and the torment of the grave. He also examines the signs of the Hour, which indicate that the Day of Judgment is approaching – many of which are already happening. As always, he quotes extensively from the texts, placing these issues squarely within an Islamic framework and dispelling the myth and misunderstandings that have arisen and become prevalent.

From The Best Adhan In The World – Muslim Call To Prayer

From The Best Adhan In The World – Muslim Call To Prayer

Azan – The Call For Prayers
In The Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Adhan is the first call to prayer. The Adhan is uttered in a loud, albeit sweet melodious, voice to announce to the faithful that it is time for the Obligatory Prayer and to invite them to offer the prayers. Those who perform Adhan are known as ‘Muedhin.’ The honour of being the first Muedhin goes to Bilal, a black slave who converted to Islam. He had a very sweet, resonant and musical voice. He was appointed as Muedhin by the Prophet of Islam. The appointment of a black slave as the first person to call Muslims for prayers, shows that in Islam all human beings are treated as equals. Rich or poor, black or white, short or tall – all are equal in the eyes of Allah. It is the piety of each individual that makes the difference.

Adhan is recited in a loud voice by the Muezzin facing the direction of the Ka’ba in the following words, which are said in the order mentioned:

“Allahu Akbar” – recited FOUR times.

Meaning, “Allah is Most Great.”(four times)

“Ash-hadu an la ilaha ill-Allah” – recited TWO times.

Meaning, “I bear witness that there is none worthy of being worshipped except Allah.”(twice)

“Ash-hadu anna Muhammad-ar-Rasoolullah” – recited TWO times.

Meaning, “I bear witness that Muhammad is the Apostle of Allah.”(recited twice)

“Hayya ‘alas-Salah” – recited TWO times.

Meaning, “Come to prayer.”(turning the face alone to the right and saying it twice)

“Hayya ‘alal-falah” – recited TWO times.

Meaning, “Come to Success.”(turning the face alone to the left and saying it twice)

“Allahu Akbar” – recited TWO times.

Meaning, “Allah is Most Great” (face back to front and saying it two times).

Morning (Fajr) Prayers

The following phrase is added after “Hayya ‘alal-falah” in the Azan of the early morning prayers:

“As-salatu khairum minannaum” – recited Two times.

Meaning, “Prayer is better than sleep” (recited two times).

”La ilaha illallah” There is no deity except for Allah.

ALLAH IS THE GREATEST

Quran(2.87) We gave Moses the Book and followed him up with a succession of messengers; We gave Jesus the son of Mary Clear (Signs) and strengthened him with the Holy Spirit. Is it that whenever there comes to you a messenger with what ye yourselves desire not, ye are puffed up with pride?- Some ye called impostors, and others ye slay!

Quran (16.90) Allah commands justice, the doing of good, and given to kith and kin, and He forbids all indecent deeds, and evil and rebellion: He instructs you, that ye may receive admonition.

Quran (2.62) Those who believe (in the Quran), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians,- any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.

Quran (2.263) Kind words and the covering of faults are better than charity followed by injury. Allah is free of all wants, and He is Most-Forbearing.

Quran (29.46) And dispute ye not with the People of the Book, except in the best way, unless it be with those of them who do wrong: but say, “We believe in the revelation which has come down to us and in that which came down to you. Our God and your God is One; and it is to Him we submit.

Quran (28.77) “But seek, with the (wealth) which Allah has bestowed on thee, the Home of the Hereafter, nor forget thy portion in this world: but do thou good, as Allah has been good to thee, and seek not (occasions for) mischief in the land: for Allah loves not those who do mischief.”

Quran (60.8) Allah forbids you not, with regard to those who fight you not for (your) Faith nor drive you out of your homes, from dealing kindly and justly with them: for Allah loveth those who are just.

Quran (5.8) O ye who believe! stand out firmly for Allah, as witnesses to fair dealing, and let not the hatred of others to you make you swerve to wrong and depart from justice. Be just: that is next to piety: and fear Allah. For Allah is well-acquainted with all that ye do.

(2.136) Say ye: “We believe in Allah, and the revelation given to us, and to Abraham, Ismail, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and that given to Moses and Jesus, and that given to (all) prophets from their Lord: We make no difference between one and another of them: And we submit to Allah (in Islam).

Quran (3.70) Ye People of the Book! Why reject ye the Signs of Allah, of which ye are (yourselves) witnesses?

Quran (3.71) Ye People of the Book! Why do ye clothe truth with falsehood, and conceal the truth, while ye have knowledge. Continue reading

An Explanation Of Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhab’s Four Principles Of Shirk

http://futureislam.files.wordpress.com/2012/10/an-explanation-of-four-principles-of-shirk.jpg

Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhab
Language: English | Format: PDF | Pages: 62 | Size: 1 MB

In this book, the author explains the dangerous concept of shrik through four simple principles. The sin of shirk – or associating partners with Allah – is the most reprehensible act that a person can do. It is for this reason that this sin is the one sin that Allah has promised He will never forgive. Unfortunately, many Muslims who are unaware of the reality of shirk fall into it out of ignorance. This short treatise is an ideal work for the Muslim in order to understand the essence of shirk, and thus essential reading for the one who wishes to avoid falling into the greatest trap of Shaytan. The explanation of the work of Muhammad ibn `Abd al-Wahhab has been taken from the works of Ibn Jibrin, Salih Al al-Shaykh, and other major scholars. Continue reading

Forgotten – Muslims Of Burma

http://futureislam.files.wordpress.com/2012/07/forgotten-muslims-of-burma.jpg

IIH Report
Language: English | Format: PDF | Pages: 22 | Size: 3 MB

The Muslims of Burma have been facing such oppression and savagery for the past two months never previously witnessed in the history of mankind. Mercilessly burning children, women and men like toasting sheep on fire is not only against every known law but something no man with any conscious can ever accept but unfortunately the Muslims of Burma are targets of such a gross crime. Not only that, but they are also being expelled from their lands, forcefully ejected from their homes, their wealth is being usurped! and their honor looted while the whole world turns a blind eye to their plight.

This report elaborates on violence that broke out in Arakan in June 2012, the background of the violent incidents and rights violations against Arakanese Muslims. The objective of this report is to bring to the public opinion developments in the region, inform the Islamic world and international community, and urge decisionmaking bodies to take necessary steps to end escalating acts of violence in Arakan.

Incidents deemed humiliating to human dignity have been going on in Arakan for long years. Recent clashes have left more than 1,000 Muslims dead and over 90,000 Muslims homeless. Most of the Arakanese fleeing violence are seeking refuge in camps in neighboring Bangladesh. However, faced with unimaginably inhumane conditions at these camps Arakanese Muslims are losing hopes for a better future. Kala, a 75-year-old Arakanese refugee who has been in these camps for long years, describes refugees’ despair: “We are waiting for death that will relieve us of our suffering.” To make the matters more tragic, Bangladesh not only has been denying refugees that have been coming since June entry into the country but also returning those who arrived in the camps in the past years.

This report on the ongoing violence in Arakan has been prepared using interviews with refugees who fled Arakan and sought shelter in different countries, information provided by human rights organizations, and 14-year-long experience of IHH in the region. Continue reading

In The Shade Of The Qur’an – Fi Dhilal Al Qur’an – Sayyid Qutb (18 Volumes)

https://islamfuture.files.wordpress.com/2010/06/in-the-shade-of-the-qur-an.jpg

Sayyid Qutb
Language: English | Format: PDF | Volumes: 18 | Size: 236 MB

Ever since its revelation 1400 years ago, the Qur’an has been a book of guidance and inspiration, a reference point, and a rich source of social and moral dynamism for hundreds of millions of people throughout the world who believe it to be immutable word of God. Hardly a generation passes without a fresh attempt to unravel the meanings of the Qur’an and gain deeper insight into its universal message within a contemporary perspective.

In The Shade Of The Qur’an is more than ‘just another’ commentary; yet it is not too over-reaching or outlandish to be a completely new interpretation. It is an earnest, sincere and sober look at man’s contemporary achievements and difficulties in the light of the message of the Qur’an. It is an effort to vigorously explore its rich wisdom, and expand its invaluable guidance for the benefit of an increasingly ’sophisticated’ , yet highly perplexed modern society.

The work, which is by far Sayyid Qutb’s largest and most profound, spans the whole of the text of the Qur’an. It was written, and partly re-written, over a period of more than 15 years, most of which the author had spent in Egyptian prisons, during the 1950s and 1960s. In it is embedded Sayyid Qutb’s insight, highly esteemed intellectual vigor, and his widely-acclaimed literary prowess.

In The Shade Of The Qur’an has been universally recognized as an outstanding contribution to Islamic thought and scholarship, to which students and scholars, as well as contemporary Islamic revivalist movements all over the world, owe a great deal. Now that it is available in English, it will continue to enlighten and inspire millions more. It will take its rightful place as an indispensable work of reference for a proper understanding of contemporary Islamic thinking. Continue reading

The Inevitable Journey, We inevitably go through the journey starting in this life and extending into the grave, before our final abode in the hereafter.

5. Dreamer’s Handbook

This book is the first in the series. It deals with sickness, which continues to afflict human beings from birth until death.

It keeps the human being under check, reminding him of his weakness and giving him a chance to turn to the One who possesses to afflict and cure. This book deals with sickness, its regulations, and lessons associated with it. It presents the Islamic stand toward a number of modern medical issues, and also discusses important regulations relating to those with disabilities. Continue reading

The End Of The World

https://islamfuture.files.wordpress.com/2011/02/the-end-of-the-world-shaykh-muhammad-mitwalli-al-sharawi.jpg

Shaykh Muhammad Mitwalli Al Sharawi
Language: English | Format: PDF | Pages: 82 | Size: 3 MB

From the pen of the late, famous scholar Shaykh Muhammad Mitwalli al-Sha’rawi. The question of the end of the world is a topic  which has captured the interest of all, including scientists and the pseudo-scientists who offer theoretical predictions about  how the world will come to an end. Such theories change on a regular basis because they are not based on true knowledge, which  is to be found only in Allah’s Revelation. In this book Shaykh Al Sha’rawi points out the contrast between the changing  perspective of the human being and immutable universe in which he lives and which provides the human being with evidence of  his Creator. He also points out how the apparent stability of the universe can delude someone lacking belief in the Creator so  that he fails to realise the true nature of existence, the transience of the human being and the necessity of awakening from  the delusion of his own power before death forces him to wake up.

Shaykh Muhammad Mitwalli ash-Sha’rawi was born in a middle class family in the village of Daqadus in Egypt. Educated at the  famours Al Azhar University where Scholars where scholars such contributed Shaykh Ahmad Yusuf Nagati, Shaykh Ahmad `Imara,  Shaykh Ibrahim Hamrush, Saykh Muhammad Mustafa al Maraghi. Shaykh al-Sha’rawi mentions other non-Azharites whose knowledge he  benefited from including Imam Hassan al-Banna who had a unique mythology of lecturing.

Shaykh al-Sha’rawi started his Azharite teaching work in Tanta’s institute of religious studies. He was then transferred to  equivalent institutes in al-Zaqaziq, Alexandria and King Abd al-Aziz al-Sa’ud university in Makkah.

He retired from the Azharite career in 1976. In the same year he was appointed by president Sadat as a minister of Waqf. He  stayed in that position for two years.

In 1980 he started his famous Friday lessons on the Egyptian television. His speaches in Qur’an interpretation (Tafsir)  attracted a massive audience that is probably unparalleled by any contemporary Azharite. Continue reading
