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



Surah An-Najam 53: - (The Star)

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Most-Merciful

“(And he does not speak out of (his own) desire. It is not but revelation revealed [to him] ... [53:3-4]”

COMMENTARY: The foregoing discussion also allays the following doubt: It seems, according to the above verses, that the Messenger (Peace Be Upon Him) does not speak of his own desire, but whatever he conveys to the people is a revelation from Allah. It follows from this that he does not exercise independent reasoning in any matter whatsoever, whereas authentic Traditions show otherwise.

There are incidents recorded that at the beginning, he promulgated one law, but, later on, revelation descended, and the law was changed. This is an indication that the earlier law was not the law of Allah, but it was based on his Ijtihad (independent reasoning).

The second type of revelation establishes a general principle of law from which the Messenger (Peace Be Upon Him) derives laws based on Ijtihd and promulgates them.

Because the general principle has descended from Allah, all the laws are said to be the revelation from Allah. Allah knows best!

Dear Husband,

Our Lord has given you power over your wife,
And I accept it, though it is difficult in life,
For me not to visit my ailing Ummie,
Nor to have tea or share laughter with my Chommie.

I try hard to be like your Mother and Sister,
It stifles me and makes me bitter.
You disapprove of my Islamic Khurta,
And mock me when I don the Burqa.

We used to be together 24/7,
I really thought that I was in heaven.
Now you rush out the door,
And don’t make Salaam no more.

~ fayday ~

An insurance agent was teaching his wife to drive when the brakes suddenly failed on a steep, downhill grade.

"I can't stop!" she shrilled. "What should I do?"

"Brace yourself," advised her husband, "and try to hit something cheap."
