By Sh Saalih Aalus-Sheikh - Imaam of Haram
Allah says which translates as: “Verily this Qur’an, guides to that which is most just and right and gives glad tidings to the believers who work righteously that they shall have a great reward” (Al-Isra’: 9). Allah is saying that this Qur’an, that He sent down which was a revelation to Muhammad (Salla Allahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) verily guides to that which is most just and right. It is guidance. It guides and directs to that which is best and just, to the correct path so people attain salvation. Those who take other paths indeed have proceeded along a path that is not proper and correct. Allah has given the evidence from the Qur’an, for all His servants. Indeed it is great evidence even though a lot of people have taken it lightly and have not given it its due right as Allah says which translates as: “And most of humankind will not believe even if you desire it eagerly” (Yusuf: 103).

The Qur’an is with us - in our hands. It is the same Qur’an, which was revealed to Muhammad that is with us today, just as it was in the hands of the companions of the Prophet (Salla Allahu Alaihi Wa Sallam). However, the companions of the Prophet took the guidance from the Qur’an. They accepted that the Qur’an, guides to that which is most right. They did not neglect the Qur’an. They did not neglect learning or practicing it. The Salaf of this nation studied the Qur’an, to take all kinds of good from it. To take from it the commands of Allah, to know from it the prohibitions of Allah, to know what Allah obliged them to do, from what He forbade them from doing, to take from it what Allah informed them of regarding things that are unknown and unseen, and the things to believe in and those things to call people to. Notice how Allah says which translates as: “guides to that which is most right and just”.

In the area of belief, the greatest matter in this is worshiping Allah alone and not setting up partners with Him. You take this from the Qur’an, because it guides you to that which is most right and just and anything else will mislead you to a dark path. A path after which there is great loss in this world and the hereafter. So, Allah guided us, He showed us, He directed us in the Qur’an, that His right is that He is worshiped alone without partners. Allah says which translates as: “And indeed it has been revealed to you, Muhammad, as it was to those before you (the other messengers) if you join others in the worship with Allah, then surly all of your deeds would be in vain and you will certainly be among the losers” (Az-Zumar: 65-66). Allah is addressing the Prophet that if he worships anything else other than Allah or sets a partner to Allah then all his deeds will be in vain, and he is the Prophet (Salla Allahu Alaihi Wa Sallam)! The one who has not left any good deed, but has performed it. However, if he were to set a partner to Allah, then all his deeds would be in vain. Allah says which translates as: “And we shall turn to whatever deeds they did and we shall make it as scattered floating particles of dust” (Al-Furqan: 23).

Therefore, Allah guided people to that which is most just and right. He clarified that in the Qur’an. He explained that, even though a servant may be amongst the people of prayer, those who give the Zakaah, those who fulfill the pillars and obligations and those who do other deeds such as Jihad for the sake of Allah, or any other deeds that may bring him closer to Allah; if this person associates anything with Allah then all his deeds would be lost. As he is not be better than the Prophet who was addressed by Allah that if even he associated partners with Allah then all of his deeds would be in vain. This is because the right of Allah is greater and more glorified, yet some people do not take the guidance of the Qur’an, and give some humans an exalted degree in rank even though they have set partners to Allah and have worshiped other than Him. They thought that this would not take them out of the fold of Islam nor make them lose their good deeds. Therefore, they glorified these people even though they may be polytheists and they elevated and exalted their ranks even though they have practiced polytheism.

"la computadora"
A Spanish teacher was explaining to her class that in Spanish, unlike English, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine.
"House" for instance, is feminine:
"la casa." "Pencil," however, is masculine: "el lapiz."

A student asked, "What gender is 'computer'?"
Instead of giving the answer, the teacher split the class into two groups, male and female, and asked them to decide for themselves whether "computer" should be a masculine or a feminine noun.

Each group was asked to give four reasons for its recommendation. The men's group decided that "computer" should definitely be of the feminine gender ("la computadora"), because:
1. No one but their creator understands their internal logic;
2. The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else;
3. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for possible later retrieval; and
4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.


The women's group, however, concluded that computers should be Masculine ("el computador"), because:
1. In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on;
2. They have a lot of data but still can't think for themselves;
3 They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they ARE the problem; and
4. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you had waited a little longer, you could have gotten a better model.

The women won!!!
