The Month of Muharram

By on Dec 7, 2015 in Articles of Faith | 0 comments

Shaykh Mawlānā Muhammad Saleem Dhorat hafizahullāh Muharram, the first month of the Islamic calendar, is one of the four sacred months mentioned in the Glorious Qur’ān, Lo! The number of the months with Allāh is twelve months by Allāh’s Ordinance in the day that He created the heavens and the earth.  Four of them are sacred: that is the right religion. So wrong not yourselves in them… (9:36) The specification of these four sacred months is stated in a hadīth narrated by Abū Bakrah radhiyallāhu ‘anhu that Rasūlullāh sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam said, Verily time has completed its cycle and returned to its original stage as it was on the day Allāh created the heavens and the earth. The year consists of twelve months, four of which are sacred.  Three of them occur consecutively; Dhul Qa’dah, Dhul Hijjah and Muharram, (the fourth being) Rajab of Mudar (named after the tribe of Mudar as they used to respect this month) which occurs between Jamādī-al-Ākhir and Sha’bān. (Al-Bukhārī) From out of the four sacred months, Muharram has been blessed with certain specific virtues. The noble Prophet sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam said, The best of fasts besides the month of Ramadhān is the fasting of Allāh’s Month of Muharram and the best of salāh besides the fardh (compulsory) salāh is the tahajjud salāh. (Muslim) In another hadīth, Ibn ‘Abbās radhiyallāhu ‘anhu reports that the Messenger of Allāh sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam said, He who fasts on the day of ‘Arafāt (9th Dhul Hijjah), his fast will be a compensation for the sins of two years,and one who keeps a fast in the month of Muharram will receive the reward of thirty fasts for each fast. (At-Tabarānī, At-Targhīb wat-Tarhīb) The Day of ‘Āshūrā (10th Muharram) The tenth day of the month of Muharram is known as ‘Āshūrā. It is one of the most important and blessed days in the Islamic calendar. Some ‘ulamā (scholars) are of the opinion that before the fasts of Ramadhān, the fast of the day of ‘Āshūrā was compulsory upon the Ummah. This is stated in a hadīth reported by ‘Ā’ishah radhiyallāhu ‘anhā that the noble Prophet sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam ordered the observance of the fast of ‘Āshūrā. However, when the fast of Ramadhān...

After Hajj

By on Jan 19, 2015 in Articles of Faith | 0 comments

By Shaykh Muhammad Saleem Dhorat hafizahullah Once again more than two million believers were honored to become the ‘Guests of Allah’ and through Divine Guidance have completed the rituals of Hajj with great love and enthusiasm. How fortunate are these souls who are blessed with the following words from Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam: Whoever performs Hajj for the Pleasure of Allah and therein utters no word of evil, nor commits any evil deed, shall return from it (free from sin) as the day on which his mother gave birth to him. Bukhaari, Muslim Verily there shall be no reward for a Mabroor Hajj except Jannah. Bukhaari, Muslim It is hoped that all the pilgrims were sincere in their intentions and had travelled thousands of miles only to secure the Pleasure of Allah by fulfilling the obligation laid down upon them. May Allah the Almighty grant all the pilgrims acceptance and grant them opportunity again and again to visit the Sacred Land. Aameen. Nevertheless, I wish to draw the attention of the pilgrims towards certain points which are necessary and of utmost importance to observe about which many pilgrims seem to attach no importance. Firstly, the sincerity of intention should remain even after the performance of Hajj. There should be no pomp or show. One should not wish to be called or recognised as a Haajji. Many people adopt the habit of talking frequently about their journey in order that people may come to know of their Hajj. They talk about the expenses incurred in the Way of Allah, their charity amongst the poor and needy, their devotion and worship, their assisting the weak and old, etc.; and all this is mentioned with the intention of gaining fame. This is a deceit from Shaytaan who ruins the ‘ibaadat of the person who is unaware of it. It is therefore of great importance that the pilgrim does not talk about his Hajj without necessity as it may lead to riyaa (show, insincerity). However, if necessity arises and one must talk about his Hajj then he is at liberty to do so. But, he must not indulge in this type of conversation unnecessarily. Secondly, it is noted through experience, that many pilgrims...

The Beauty of Marriage In Islam

By on Jan 13, 2015 in Articles of Faith, Blog, Events | 0 comments

Marriage is a vital part of a Muslim’s life. In fact marriage is so important in the religion of Islam that it is declared to be one half of one’s faith. As a Muslim one should live in accordance with the Islamic Jurisprudence in the way shown by the greatest of creations and the person who has the greatest impact on mankind in the existence of the universe, The Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) himself married and also encouraged others to marry. It has been reported that the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said, ‘A person who possesses the means to marry (i.e. he is able to work etc. to support a wife and children) and does not marry then he is not from amongst us (i.e. the believers).’ In another narration the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) has been reported to have said, ‘Do not delay in three things; 1) The offering of the obligatory prayer. 2) The offering of the funeral prayer when the deceased’s body is present . 3) The marriage of a woman when her couple is found’ One can see from this statement that to become a complete and true believer one must act upon the advice given by the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). This means marrying when the partner is found and not delaying it for too long. For this reason, we at Seven Kings Masjid have organised a program regarding the “Beauty of Marriage in Islam” to keep the awareness of its importance between the Muslim ummah, especially the youth. The talk will be delivered in English by the world renowned scholar, Mufti Muhammad ibn Adam Al...
