May Allah (SWT) grant us and all the Marhoomeen Forgiveness and Jannatul Firdaus (Aameen)



by Mufti Abdur Raheem Lajpuri Saheb RA (Allâh grant barakah to him)

Question: The Religious Scholars (Ulamâ) are requested to shed light upon the factors behind Muslim distress and suffering all over the world. Muslims are facing riots and massacres at many places - Why is this?

Answer: There are several reasons for this sad state of affairs in the Ummah. Among the more prominent ones are the following:

* Lack of true faith in Allâh Ta'âla.
* Increased disobedience towards Him.
* Increasing timidity among us.
* Love of the materialistic world [Hubb-e-Dunya wa Mâl].
* Open disobedience of the Sunnah of Rasulullâh Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam.

Following our own innovated [bid'ah] practices and customs. Neglecting the rights of Allâh [Huqûq-Allâh], and the rights of creation [Huqûq-ut-Ibad].

Our complete ingratitude towards the innumerable blessings showered upon us by our Benefactor, despite being totally unworthy of these blessings.

Disregard for the selfless advice given to us by our noble Ulamâ in relation to our religion.

Almighty Allâh sums up the reasons for our suffering in Surah 42, Âyah 30 of the Noble Qur'ân:

"Whatever misfortune happens to you, it is because of the things your hands have wrought, and for many of them he grants forgiveness"

A further elaboration on this point is found in Surâh 30, Âyah 4 1:
"Mischief has appeared on and sea because of what the hands of man have caused, that Allâh may give them a taste of some of their deeds; in order that they turn back from evil. "

Severe Punishment for Certain Types of Sins

Indulging in disobedience and committing sins anger Allâh, but certain sins are such that, if committed, will invite a very swift and severe punishment.

Among these types of sins are:

Unjust decision-making and the breaking of a pledge - these await the imposition of tyrannical rule.

Short-weighting and short-measuring by traders  await the punishment of famine, inflation and oppression.

Widespread betrayal of trust will cause the imposition of tyrant rulers.

Fearing death and inclining towards materialism [dunya] will result in timidity and fear the faithful. - Jazâ-ul-A'mâl.

The companion, Sayyadina Thawbân Radhiallahu Anhu narrated that Muhammad Sallallahu alayhi wasallam is reported to have said:

"A period will come when the enemies will come closer by calling one another for annexing the nations of the believers just like how people call one another for eating food when it has, been prepared. "Someone then asked as to whether the Muslims will be few in number then?

Rasulullah Sallallahu alayhi wasallam is reported to have replied, "You will be large in numbers, but will like hay before a flood of water. Your enemies will not fear you because you will be so weak and timid. "One companion then asked the reason for this decline, and Rasulullah Sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, "Life (and its luxuries) will become more dearer to you and you will dislike death, (and facing Allâh).

Q. Can the ceditor claim his belongings before the fixed date of payment?

When a woman requested a whole rooster at the market where I work, the butcher didn't let on that the bird he presented her was the last one. "Do you have one that's a little larger?" she asked.

"Of course," said the butcher. He took the rooster behind the counter, away from view, and made a lot of noise rolling it around the ice as if he were searching for just the right chicken. He then showed the same bird to her.

"Better," she said. "Do you have one with a little more meat on it?"
He took the chicken, rolled it in the ice and offered it up a third time.
"Great," the woman said. "I'll take all three."
