Praise be to Allah who alone enjoys Majesty and perfect Beauty, as a sign of His Greatness and Grandeur, and who alone conducts matters in their detail and generality in ordinance and disposition, and who is Supreme in His Greatness and Glory; it is He who revealed the Furqan (i.e. Qur'an) to His servant (Muhammad ?) in order for it to be a warning for the Worlds; and I bear witness that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah alone with no partners, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant and Messenger who is supported by miracles and given victory by the wind from the Lord of all creatures; on him from Allah is the best Salat (Graces, Honors, and Mercy) and Peace; on his household the Good, the Pure; on his wives the mothers of the believers; and on his Companions and those who followed them in good faith till the Day of Judgment.

Fear Allah, O servants of Allah! And know that the best of the speech is embodied in the Book of Allah, and the best guidance is the guidance given by Muhammad (?) and the worst evils are innovations (in Faith), and every innovation is a heresy, and every heresy is straying from the right path; seek the company of the community of Muslims, for Allah's Hand is on the hand of the (Muslim) community: ?And whoever contradicts and opposes the Messenger (Muhammad ??? ???? ???? ????) after the right path has been shown clearly to him, and follows other than the believers’ way, We shall keep him in the path he has chosen, and burn him in Hell - what an evil destination!? [An-Nisâ: 115].

O People!

One of Allah's Ayats (signs) in this great universe on which depends life in the living human body is an Ayat (a sign) which arouses energy and motion and grants determination after languor. It is a sign whose existence gives man strength after weakness and relief after distress. If man reflects on it, his faith in his Lord increases and he will realize that He is the Creator and Owner of everything and that there is no true deity except Him. It is a sign on earth and in heaven by which Allah took oath in His Holy Book. Allah, the Creator (?), mentioned it in the Holy Qur'an in twenty nine different places. Each oath Allah takes in His Book is great: ?And verily that is indeed a great oath, if you but know.? [Al-Wâqi'ah: 76].

Allah (?) can swear by whatever He wills of His creations and signs which He made as lessons and examples for those of understanding, and as proof and sorrow for every oblivious one who does not remember Allah by such signs, and do not return to Him by reflecting on them. Thus they are among those about whom Allah (?) truly says: ?And how many a sign in the heavens and the earth they pass by, while they are averse therefrom.? [Yûsuf: 105]. ?And most of them believe not in Allâh except that they attribute partners unto Him [i.e. they are Mushrikûn i.e. polytheists. See Verse 6: 121].? [Yûsuf:106] read more

Noble Qualities of the Final Prophet SAW – His Humility – Part 2 of 2

In this amazing series, Ml Dawood Seedat brings alive the beautiful and extraordinary qualities of our master and leader, Prophet Muhammad SAW. In this podcast, Moulana discussed the Tawaathu or Humility of Rasulullah Sallallahu’Alayhi Wa Sallam. Ml Dawood discussed the Hadith ‘Man Tawaatha ‘Alillah Rawfa Ahullah - That person who humbles himself for the sake of Allah Ta’ala, Allah will elevate him’.

Despite the status afforded to our Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu’Alayhi Wa Sallam, he displayed the most humility and was approachable by any person.

When he, Sallallahu’Alayhi Wa Sallam, was informed by Jibra’eel AS of his Nabuwat/Prophethood, Moulana explained that Rasullullah Sallallahu’Alayhi Wa Sallam was made aware that `..the entire world is waiting for you. You are the Imam/Leader of all the Prophets. You are the most beloved to Allah. You’ve been created perfect. This world and beyond and whatever is contain herein, if it hadn’t been for you nothing would have been created.’ Despite these amazing accolades, Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu’Alayhi Wa Sallam would say, ‘I’m nothing but a slave of Allah. I eat as a slave eats. I sleep as a slave sleeps.’ This is part 2 of 2… Listen

Ali bin Rabee`ata RA said: I witnessed Ali bin Abi Tãib RA when he was given an animal to mount, just when he put his foot in the mount he said: In the name of Allah [Bismillahi], then when he had ascended upon its back, he said: All praise be to Allah [Al-hamdu lil-lãh], then he said: Subhãnal-lathee sakh-khara lanã hãthã wa mã kunnã lahu muqrineena. Wa'innã 'lã rabbinã lamunqaliboona. Then he said Al-hamdu lil-lãhi 3 times, then he said: 'Allãhu 'akbaru, 3 times, then he said: Subhãnaka 'allãhumma 'inne thalamtu nafsee, faghfirlee, fa'innahu lã yaghfiruth-thunooba 'illã 'anta… Glory be to Him who has availed this to our use, for we were not bound to it. And to our Lord surely we will be returning.

Then he smiled, so he was asked: O' Commander of the faithful! Why did you smile? He said: I saw the Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam do as I have done, then he smiled, so I asked him: O' Messenger of Allah! Why do you smile? He said "Your Lord Glorified and Exalted is He, admires when one of His bondservants says: Lord forgive me my sins, he knows that no one else forgives sins besides Me [Allah]".

Have you noticed that stairs are getting steeper? Groceries are heavier. And, everything is farther away. Yesterday I walked to the corner and I was dumbfounded to discover how long our street had become!

And, you know, people are less considerate now, especially the young ones. They speak in whispers all the time! If you ask them to speak up they just keep repeating themselves, endlessly mouthing the same silent message until they're red in the face! What do they think I am a lip reader? or DEAF or Something.

I also think they are much younger than I was at the same age. On the other hand, people my own age are so much older than I am. I ran into an old friend the other day and she has aged so much that she didn't even recognize me.
