HADITH (Traditions of the Prophet Muhammad Peace be Upon Him)

Malik bin Al-Huwairith (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: We came to the Messenger of Allah (Peace Be Upon Him) when we were all young men of nearly equal age. We stayed with him for twenty days. He was extremely kind and considerate. He perceived that we missed our families so he asked us about those we left behind, and we informed him. Then he (Peace Be Upon Him) said, "Go back to your families, stay with them, teach them (about Islam) and exhort them to do good. Perform such Salat (prayer) at such a time and such Salat at such a time. When the time for Salat is due, one of you should announce Adhan (call for prayer) and the oldest among you should lead Salat.'' [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Commentary: This Hadith sheds light on seven points.

  1. First, we are informed of certain young men who had left their homes and come to the Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) in order to receive religious training from him. This shows that a student of knowledge should not hesitate to set forth on a journey in the pursuit of knowledge.
  2. Second, a teacher/mentor is supposed to have firsthand information about the affairs and requirements of students and to take measures accordingly.
  3. Thirdly, after graduation or the completion of an orientation course in religious studies, the beneficiaries are also required to impart religious knowledge and training to those who lack it.
  4. Fourthly, they should also tell people to do what is commanded by the Shari`ah (Islamic Law) and to shun what it prohibits.
  5. Fifthly, an arrangement must be made for a Mu'adhdhin to call people to Salat (prayers).
  6. Sixthly, in case each one of the congregation is equally qualified to lead the Salat, the one who is most senior in age should perform the duty. The first prerequisite of becoming an Imam is the ability to recite Qur'an well and in the right manner. The second in priority is that person who is well-grounded in the religion - Qur'an and Hadith. In other words, a good Qari (reciter) is most fit to become an Imam and the second choice should be the one who has the mastery of religious knowledge.
  7. Seventhly, the crux of the matter is that on all occasions and at all places, believers are under obligation to take care to establish congregational prayer after the call of prayer.

"You can have wealth but you can't buy class.

You can have wealth but not a generous heart.

You may have wealth but remember it doesn't mean you have everything."

The father was doubtful of his son's sudden interest to become a body builder. Nevertheless he went with the teenager to the weight-lifting department.

"Please, Dad," begged the boy, "I promise I'll use them every day...."

"I'm not so sure, Danny. You may lose interest in the equipment," his father was quick to point out.

"Ahhhh please, Dad?"

"Besides, it's quite an expense," the father added.

"I promise, Dad, I'll use them...."

Danny finally won, and his Dad paid for the equipment. As the father was leaving the department, he heard his son call out..."What! You mean I have to carry this stuff to the car?"
