How excellent and true is what Sayyadatina Aaishah (RA) said: "The first part of the Qur'aan to be revealed was a Soorah giving a detailed account about Paradise and Hell. Then when the people entered into the fold of Islaam, came the revelation of what is Halaal (lawful) and Haraam (unlawful). Had the first revelation been: "Do not drink wine", they would have said: "We shall never give up wine". Had the first revelation been: "Do not commit adultery and fornication", they would have said: "We shall never give up adultery and fornication". (Aisha RA)

Changing the environment is a factor but is not the most important or fundamental one. The establishment of Tawheed in the hearts is the most important factor. The presence of gratefulness to Allaah and the absence of its opposite is a factor. The presence of the correctness of ones actions and its agreement with the Sharee' ah and the absence of its opposite is a factor. The presence of loving and hating for the sake of Allaah alone and being loyal to the criterion of truth, the understanding, way and methodology of the Pious Predecessors and not ones group or party is a factor. We cannot achieve this except by acquiring the sound and authentic knowledge from the correct sources and then nurturing ourselves upon it.

This is what in turn would make the desired and conducive change in the environment. This is why having the correct belief in Allaah is vital. Because the rest of ones actions and perceptions depend on this belief, are shaped and nurtured by it. This is why some of the Pious Predecessors used to say: "Whoever does not know his Lord does not know himself."

Touching The Earlobes In Takbeer Tahrima

Question: Is it necessary for a male to touch the earlobes when saying Takbeer Tahrima?

Answer: If one touches the earlobes, it is fine and if one merely raises the hands so that the thumbs are parallel to the ear lobes without actually touching them, that is also fine. The Fuqaha have mentioned that the touching of the ears is merely to assist one in fulfilling the Sunnah of raising the hands in-line with the ears. Furthermore, it is Mustahab for the palms to face the Qibla when raising them for Takbeer Tahrima. Fatawa Mahmoodiyyah, V5/P582

An Honest Man's life...

There's this Jack who was working for a multi-millionaire as a house guard. One day, while the millionaire was driving out to catch an early morning flight to conclude a business deal, Jack ran out from the guard house and stopped the millionaire's car just right in front of the gate.

He said 'Sir...Sir.. are you going to board a plane?'

'Yes, why do you ask?' asked the millionaire.
'You had better cancel the trip. You see, last night I dreamt about the plane going to crash.'

Curious over the early morning fright that Jack had given, the multimillionaire decided to cancel his trip. 'You better be damn right for this is a million dollar deal..'

The following day, there were news reports that the plane which the millionaire was supposed to take had indeed crash landed. 'Thank God, I cancelled the trip,.' the rich man said realising that what Jack had said had come true, he called for him.

When the guard came that morning, the millionaire gave him his salary and FIRED him.


ANSWER: Jack was supposed to guard! the house at night. NOT to Sleep and Dream all night!
