Misconception of 2nd Islamic Month – Safar

All praises to Allah (Subhanaho wa Ta’ala) and choiciest blessings upon our beloved Prophet Muhammud (SallAllahu alayhi wasallam)   
Alhamdulillah, today we have entered the second month of the lunar calendar. 

 Safar with a “Saad” either means ”To turn yellow’ or ‘To be empty/vacant’. 

It was in Autumn when the leaves turn yellow or the homes of the Arabs were empty of their menfolk, that this month was named Safar. 

 This month is also known as, Safarul Muzaffar or Safarul Khayr, which means, prosperous, successful, good fortune etc. This is to eradicate the corrupt beliefs of some people who say, the month of Safar is bad-luck, evil, ill-omened, unfortunate etc., so marriages, major transactions etc. must not be conducted in this month. 

Rasulullah (SallAllahu alayhi wasallam) eradicated all superstitious beliefs.

 Time, day, week, month, year is an estimation and effected by the Will of Allah.

If anyone does good at anytime, he will be rewarded accordingly and the effects of evil and sins will be decided by Allah. 

There are many periods of the lunar calendar and many places in the world where the rewards of good deeds are multiplied and has an adverse result withh sins. 

Our intellect and understanding is limited, therefore we seek divine guidance from the Glorious Quran and Ahaadees of Rasulullah (SallAllahu alayhi wasallam) 

Senior scholars have explained many things to us, in accordance to the Sharee’ah, which we must accept and adhere to, if we desire success in both worlds. 

There is a host of corrupt beliefs regarding this month. True and sincere Muslims should refrain from them and engage in beneficial deeds. In reality, no time or individual is evil originally. 

All the customs and beliefs of Safar are baseless. Many people have erroneous beliefs regarding this month i.e. it is a month of misfortune and calamities.

The teachings of Allah Ta’ala and His Most Beloved Rasul (SalAllahu Alaihi waSalam) gives us clear guidelines on such incorrect beliefs. 

Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta’ala) says in the Qur’an al-Kareem: “No misfortune befalls except by Allah’s command. ..” [Surah Tagabun, Verse 11] These erroneous beliefs have also been condemned in the context of the following Ahadith: There is no superstitious owl, bird, no star-promising rain, no bad omen in the month of Safar. [Sahih Bukhari, Hadith 5707]

 There is no bad omen in the month of Safar and no Ghouls (evil spirits). [Sahih Muslim, Hadith 2222]

 The above Ahadith clearly refutes all incorrect beliefs and superstitions regarding the month of Safar

These incorrect beliefs flow from the pre-Islamic period of Jahiliyyah

The Month of Safar during the Days of Ignorance

 The Muhaddithin have recorded many of the superstitions harboured by the Arabs during the Days of Ignorance

A few are mentioned below: 

1) The pre-Islamic Arabs believed Safar to be a snake which lives in the stomach of a human being and when hungry, bites the person. This is the discomfort one experiences when gripped by the pangs of hunger

2) Some said Safar are worms which originate in the liver and ribs due to which the colour of the person becomes yellow, a condition we know today as jaundice

3) According to some, the month of Safar flanked by Muharram and Rabi al Awwal is full of calamities and misfortune
 With the advent of Islam and the teachings of Sayyadina Rasulullah (SalAllahu Alaihi waSalam), all evil and incorrect beliefs common in pre-Islamic times were discarded

Incorrect Beliefs: Today too, there are some Muslims who hold incorrect beliefs regarding the month of Safar

 1. A nikah performed in this month would not be successful

 2. This month is full of misfortune and calamities

 3. To commence any important venture, business etc. during this month will bring bad luck

 4. The first to the thirteenth of Safar is ill-fortune and evil

 5. The person who distributes food or money on the 13th of Safar will be saved from its ill-fortune

 6. To celebrate the last Wednesday of Safar and regard it as a holiday

What to do:

 1. To shun all types of erroneous beliefs regarding the blessed month of Safar

 2. To understand that the most unfortunate person is he who disobeys Allah Ta’ala’s commandments e.g. does not perform the five daily salah etc. It is narrated in a hadith that Rasulullah (SalAllaho Alaihi waSalam) said: “Pray, 0 Allah! Cause not anyone of us to be a wretched destitute.” He then asked: “Do you know who is a wretched destitute?” Upon the request of the Sahabah (RadiAllahu Ta’ala Anhum) he replied, “A wretched destitute is he who neglects his salaat.”

3. We should understand that all conditions which befalls us, good or bad, favourable, or unfavourable are from Allah Ta’ala, (as a result of our actions)

 Allah Ta’ala says: ”Whatever misfortune befalls you, it is due to the things your hands have wrought, and He forgives many a sin.” (Surah 42 – Verse 30)

 This can also be confirmed by the following Hadith: Sayyadina Jabir (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu) has said that, “I have heard Sayyadina Rasulullah (SalAllahu Alaihi waSalam) saying, the descending of illness and evil superstition befalling in the month of Safar is untrue.”

Rare Gem – Easy way to Jannat

Assalam’Alaikum

Today as I was going through my facebook page I came across this picture(s)  

 
I was in awe and hurt. I was awe with this picture(s) as it tells/illustrates more than 1,000 words can describe. On the other hand I felt hurt because people are clueless and quick to judge. 

Let me explain. This image is of a married couple who is enjoying and celebrating Eid (2015). The husband is taking his different able bodied wife around. It is Masha’Allah beautiful and amazing Subhana’Allah. 

I would like to say to the woman in this image, Allah (SWT) has gifted you with a one of a gem. Your husband is a gift and a dua from Allah (SWT). May Allah (SWT) continues to bless you two with happiness in this life and Hereafter. Aameen. 

I would like to say to her husband, yes you are indeed a gem that Allah (SWT) has blessed your wife with, but please never forget that your wife is equal a dua and a gift directly from Allah (SWT). This body that we have is temporary, today it’s there and tomorrow it’s between the earth, but the soul never changes. Always treat her with happiness and never make her feel any less, because truthfully she isn’t any less than anyone in this world, but Allah (SWT) has made her special, so indeed she is special. Today you bring her a smile, In Sha’Allah tomorrow in Jannat she will be your card to Jannat. 

May Allah (SWT) bless you both all the happiness in this world and Hereafter. Aameen. Have a blessed Eid 

For people who judge, please remember that job is ONLY for Allah (SWT), not us humans. He is the best of Knowledger and Witnesses anything/everything. May Allah (SWT) save us from judging someone else before looking at ourselves. Aameen.

How Shaytan Rules

Assalam’Alaikum ( السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته)

We always hear, read, and get told about Power of Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى), who is the Most Powerful. He is the changer of hearts, destiny, life, death, and much much more. Allah’hu’Akbar (Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) is Great). 

Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) has gifted us, human beings, choice. We have a choice to follow His Path of hardships, obedience, and discipline or stray from His Path, by following our desires and lusts. 

He has given us the beauty of free will, He has given us the gift of Knowledge (Al – Qur’an), He blessed us with the teacher (Muhammed (SAW) (صلى الله عليه وسلم‎ )) and blessed us with the deen (Islam). Alhumdulillah ( الحمد لله).  What we do with these, our choice, but each action has a reaction! 

 
If we do good throughout the year, then we do not let shaytan rule in the blessed month of Ramadhan. 

How we take each step is our choice. Don’t let your own steps be your own destruction. 

May Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) helps and guide us to His Path, May He forgive all of us and this Ummah of all errors, mistakes, and sins, May He accept our Ibadah (worship) and fasts. Aameen. 

If I have said anything wrong or have done any mistake(s), please accept my apologies. Please remember me in your Duas. 

Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) and Dua 

Assalam’Alaikum ( السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته) 

Our beloved Prophet Muhammed (SAW) (صلى الله عليه وسلم‎ ) has stated the power of raising our hands and asking Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) 

  
It is easy to feel lost or hopeless many times, which is a trick of Satan, but let us always try to remember the Power of Al Rehman Al Reheem our Creator Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى). 

May Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) have Mercy on us and fulfill our duas. Aameen. 

How to deal with Riya and showoff in Islam? Part 1

Bismillah e rahmani raheem (In the name of Allah (swt) {God}, Most Gracious, Most Merciful)
Bismillah e rahmani raheem (In the name of Allah (swt) {God}, Most Gracious, Most Merciful)+

Assalam alaikum,

I got a question from one of our readers, while I did some research, I was surprised by such vast of information on this topic, which was very interesting. Before I go ahead, I would deeply like to thank that reader for this question, because of you, I got a chance to learn and teach to many other people In Sha’Allah.

Question: How to deal with Riya and showoff in Islam?

Since this is huge topic, I would like to discuss in depth and into parts.

Part 1: Riya

What is riya? Riya has many levels in Islam, but the broad definition could be considered as arrogance. Riya can come in many forms such as in our hearts, minds, verbal aspects, and actions.

Let us explore these aspects:

Hearts: When we win or do something and get praised, we often forget Allah (swt) helped us, and we believe that we achieved by ourselves. We not only forget our Creator, without His help we cannot achieve anything, but we also discredit our family members and our loved ones and leave them behind. We take all the credit and fame.

Minds: We tend to believe in ourselves after we achieve something. That’s “I tried” or “I did”, it becomes all about me, instead of Allah (swt). When we lose something or something goes bad, we say or blame Allah (swt) or family/friends, but never oneself.

Verbal Aspects: We start comparing ourselves to other people, especially people in Islamic history such as Caliphs, Sahabahs, Prophet (saw)’s wives, and Prophet (saw), and etc.

We should never compare ourselves with anyone, especially anyone from Prophet’s time or to Himself. Allah (swt) is the best in Knowledge, let Him be the judge. We can strive to be like them, but we can never be them or compare ourselves with them.

Actions: When hearts and minds become one thought, then automatically our actions follow that train of thought.

Effects of Good Deeds in Islam

Assalam’Alaikum ( السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته)

In today’s time, we constantly want recognition for our good actions, (I am saying this because I am like that) but after learning more about our beautiful deen Islam, I have learn to control the aspect of recognition. 

I don’t want to be recognized in this world by people, but I pray that Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) recognizes me and provides His Shade to me in Hereafter. Aameen. 

I pray same for our brothers and sisters in Ummah, who does good deeds only for the sake of Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى).  Aameen. 

  

Women in Islamic History

Assalam’Alaikum ( السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته)

I came across this image and wanted to share this with you. This makes each one of us realize what the status of women says in Islam and Islamic history

  
May Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) makes us, Muslimahs, a good examples and leaders in Islam. Aameen. 

This is Islam

Assalam’Alaikum ( السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته)

Believe it or not, this image sums up what Islam is, not what people have made Islam into! 

Please take a moment to think about it and share it with your family and friends. Jazaka’Allah Khair ( جزاك اللهُ خيراً)
