Accepted Actions 被接受的行為

“In order for any action to be accepted by Allāh ta’ala it must fulfil two conditions:

1.The action must be in accordance with the teachings of the Prophet sallalahu alayhi wasallam.

2.There must be sincerity in the action, i.e. it must be done for
the pleasure of Allāh ta’ala.

It is imperative that these two conditions are fulfilled,
otherwise the action will not be accepted in the Court of Allāh ta’ala.
Often, enough emphasis is not given to the first point: if an action,
no matter how sincere it is, does not conform to the teachings of
the Prophet sallalahu alayhi wasallam, it will not be accepted.

This concept can be further understood through the example of
a passport and visa.
At immigration control the first thing that is checked is the validity
of the passport. If the officer does not accept its authenticity then
no matter how valid the visa is,the passport holder will not be able
to progress.

假如檢察官不接受這已齊備的手續,那麼 無論你的通行證效力會有多齊全,

Similarly, when it comes to our actions in the Court of Allāh ta’ala
they must first be in accordance to the teachings of
the Prophet sallalahu alayhi wasallam.
Only then will their sincerity be checked. If both pass the test
then the action will be accepted by Allāh ta’ala.”

同樣地,當一切是為了真主而作的行為 ,
只有這樣 ,那些虔誠的行為才會受到檢驗,如果同過了這2項的考驗,

Insha ALLAH ,may ALLAH accept for our niat (intention)
and good deen ( deed)
假如真主允諾,求主接受我們的niat(舉意)和 deen (善行)。

Do not deny for the truth --Islam 不可否認的真理--伊斯蘭

" We ~ Allah will show them Our signs in the universe,
and in their souls, until it becomes clear to them that It
~ the Quran is the truth. Is it not enough ~ for non-
believers that your Lord witnesses over all things?

把我的許多跡象昭示他們 ,
直到他們明白古蘭經卻是真理" < 古蘭經41.53>

"Do not curse those who call to worship other than Allah,
so that they don't curse Allah out of spite and ignorance.
This is how We ~Allah appealed to each people its own
actions; then they will be brought back to their Lord
~ Allah, who will inform them of what they have been doing."

你們不要辱罵他們捨棄真主而祈禱的 (偶像),
以免他們因過分和無知而辱罵真主 。
我這樣以每個民族的行為迷惑他們, 然後 ,
他們只歸於他們的主, 而要把他們生前的行為告訴他們。< 古蘭經6.108>

"And if you were in doubt about what We have revealed to
Our servant, then bring forth a book like the Quran; and call
your witnesses ~scientists to prove it contrary to Allah, if
you were truthful.

那麼,你們擬作一章 並捨真主,
而祈禱你們的見證 ,如果你們是誠實的。< 古蘭經2.23>

" But you cannot and will never ~be able. So beware of
a fire whose fuel is men and stones prepared for blasphemers."

如果你們不能作證 ,你們絕不能作 --那麼 ,
你們當防備火獄 ,那是用人和石做燃料的,
已為不信道的人們預備好了。< 古蘭經2.24>

" They only disbanded after they received knowledge ~of
their Bible fallaciously among them. And if it were not a word
from your Lord ~Allah that postponed it to a later date, it
would have been all settled among them then. And those
who inherited the Book ~the Bible from them are in great
suspicion of it. < Quran 42:14>

知識來臨他們後, 他們才為互相嫉妒而分派別。
那麼,他們必已受裁判了。 在他們之後繼承天經的人們,
對於天經,的確在使人猶豫的疑惑中。。< 古蘭經42.14>

"Therefore call them ~to the Quran and straighten your ways
as you are ordered and don't follow their passions and say:
"I believe in what Allah revealed of the Book ~The Quran
and I was ordered to be just among you ~both Christians
and Jews; Allah is our Lord and your Lord, we have our
actions and you have your actions, no argument between
us and you, Allah brings us together and to Him we are

戒除惡習 By-Ibn al-Qayyim rahimullah

"Stand firm against evil thoughts, for if you fail to do so,

they will become ideas,if you do not,

they will become desires, so fight against them.

If you do, they will become a form of determination and intention,

if you do not resist, they will become actions,

and if you do not follow them up with their opposite,

they will become habits that will be hard to quit."

Are we worring, crying, laughing in vain? ignoring reality

saddness for anything that is not eternal is vain....death is your true birth...theres no time to worry or be sad or lonely...espacialy if there is something after death one should prepare for..."What is the life of this world but amusement and play? but verily the Home in the Hereafter,-that is life indeed, if they but knew"(translation of the Quran) why waste time careing about it...

this life, anything in this life that does not bring you closer to the Beloved is insignifigant in vain pointless and thus so is worrying or being sad because of it....if you want to be sad...their is something much greater to be sad about...and if you want to be happy,their is something greater to be happy about...if people only knew it...they would smash their
heads for ever sheding a tear or breaking a laugh, on material things which seemed so vital,while forgetting the eternal things which alone are worth tears or laughter:

1. Namely, that no bearer of burdens can bear the burden of another;
2. That man can have nothing but what he strives for;
. That (the fruit of) his striving will soon come in sight:
. Then will he be rewarded with a reward complete;
. That to thy Lord is the final Goal;
6. That it is He Who granteth Laughter and Tears;
7. That it is He Who granteth Death and Life;
8. That He did create in pairs,- male and female,
9. From a seed when lodged (in its place);
. That He hath promised a Second Creation (Raising of the Dead);
11.. That it is He Who giveth wealth and satisfaction;

The (material) things which ye are given are but the conveniences of this life and the
glitter thereof; but that which is with God is better and more enduring: will ye not then
be wise?

"Know that worldly life is merely a sport and a pastime [involving] worldly show and competition among yourselves, as well as rivalry in wealth and children. It may be compared to showers where the plantlike amazes the incredulous: then it withers away and you see it turning yellow; soon it will be just stubble. In the Hereafter there will be both severe torment and forgiveness as well as approval on the part of God.
Worldly life means only the enjoyment of illusion.

Compete for forgiveness from your Lord, and a garden broader than the sky plus the earth, which has been prepared for those who believe in God and His messenger. Such is God's bounty which He gives to anyone He wishes. God possesses splendid bounty!

No disaster ever happens on earth nor to yourselves unless it is [contained] in a Book even before We brought it into existence. That is easy for God [to do], so that you should not feel sorry about what may have escaped you, nor yet rejoice in what He has given you. God does not love every conceited boaster who is miserly and orders people to be miserly. For anyone who turns away from it, God is Transcendent, Praiseworthy

We are choosing our wife for her permanent values; namely her religious devotions,
moral integrity, character etc. But believe me, if we try ourselves to combine
a marriage,
we are almost sure to fail, because we have no knowledge.

Allah loves a servant when he puts his trust in Him. When we do so, it is illustrating
how we rely upon Him for help, and proving our sincerity to Him, establishing that we recognise His infinite knowledge and wisdom.

Islam is likened to being as a house, and in my estimation nothing cements that house together as well as putting our trust in Allah.

It is related on the authority of Jabir ibn 'Abdullah that the Prophet (s.a.w) used to teach his companions to seek, through a special du'a (known as an istikharah), the guidance of Allah in
all matters which affected them. Rasulallah (s.a.w) said:

"When you are confused about what you should do in a certain situation, then pray two rak'at
of nafl salaat and read the following du'a (du'a of istikharah).

" I am surprised at the criticisms thrown at this du'a, and of its negligence. We are humans, powerless in this sphere of life, knowledgeable only enough to survive. So why shouldn't we
turn to Allah and seek His perfect help whenever we require it? Allah responds to the call of
His servant when he asks for guidance, and we are after all seeking to do something in order
to please Him.

Many wrong notions exist concerning istikharah. Many Muslims will pray, read the du'a, and run to bed expecting to see a dream showing them their future wife, what her favourite colour is, and some other weird fantasy. That is not the purpose of this salaat.

The results of an istikharah can take many forms. Basically, you go by your feelings, whether you now feel more favourable or not. Also, you may notice events have changed, either for or against you.

Finally, as a wonderful gift from Allah, you may be blessed with a dream. Note that you must follow the results of an istikharah, because not doing so is tantamount to rejecting Allah's guidance once you've asked for it. Also, you should firstly clear your mind, not have your mind already decided, and then afterwards follow the results willingly.

The Prophet (s.a.w) once sent Zainab a proposal of marriage. She refused to accept the proposal straight away, expressing her intention to refer the matter to Allah:

"I do not do anything until I solicit the will of my Lord." Allah, the Responsive, answered her plea for help and revealed an ayah approving of the marriage. We may seem shocked at her refusal to accept a proposal from what is the best husband any woman can have, yet she was just recognising that it is Allah who knows how successful such a marriage will be, and as a sign of appreciation, that reply is now preserved in our Holy Book: al Qur'an.

The Prophet (s.a.w) once said to Aisha: "I saw you in a dream for three nights when an angel brought you to me in a silk cloth and he said'Here is your wife', and when I removed (the cloth) from your face, look, it was yourself, so I said: 'if this is from Allah, let Him carry it out' ".

Marriage is a serious step, and requires the right attitude. If marriage completes half our faith, shouldn't that half be the best half?

A woman married for the wrong reasons can only weaken the Muslim household. Consider that she will be your life-long companion, the rearer of your children. Don't marry her for her worldly wealth, but for her wealth in Islamic wisdom and knowledge. Her status in this life is but illusionary, so choose her for her status in the sight of Allah.

Beauty is but superficial, but the beauty of Iman is transcendent. When asking Allah for a wife, call upon Him by His beautiful names, as He has commanded us:

"For Allah are certain and dignified names: therefore call upon Him by them"[7:189].

Ask for a companion who is devout, pious, patient and so on. Be among those who say:

"Our Lord, may our spouses and our offspring be a joy to our eyes and make us leaders of the righteous"[al-Furqan,74]. I cannot provide a better conclusion than saying that you must put your trust in Allah. You must have trust in His concern for us, and His ability to help us.

Allah says: "Put your trust in Allah, for Allah loves those who put their trust in Him"[3:159]. May Allah help us in our sincere efforts in following His commandments and the way of His beloved servant, and provide us with wives whom He loves.

"When my servants ask you concerning Me, I am indeed close (to them): I respond to the prayer of every supplicant when he calls on Me: let them also, with a will, listen to my call, and believe in Me: that they may walk in the right way"[2:186]


Alright, you say, you've convinced me, but what actually makes her a pious woman?
The answer is simple: Allah himself has described those qualities most loved by Him in the Qur'an, and in the ahadith there are numerous accounts of the virtuous attributes of a pious woman.

The following are some ayahs on the attributes of the wife you should be seeking, so note those fine and appreciative qualities. The following are some ayahs on the attributes of the wife you should be seeking, so note those fine and appreciative qualities.

"And women of purity are for men of purity, and men of purity are for women of purity"[24:26]

"Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient, and guard in (the husbands) absence what Allah would have them guard"[4:34]

"It may be, if he divorced you (all), that Allah will give him in exchange consorts better than you, who submit (Muslims), who believe, who are devout, who turn to Allah in repentance, who worship (in humility), who travel (for faith) and fast..."[66:5].

And then, in surah Ahzab, is a full list of those qualities loved by Allah, qualities which by the way should be evident in both males and females. So, my dear brother, choose her for the following attributes:

-a Muslim woman
-a believing woman
-a devout woman
-a true woman
-a woman who is patient and constant
-a woman who humbles herself
-a woman who gives charity
-a woman who fasts and denies herself
-a woman who guards her chastity
-a woman who engages much in Allah's praise.

Among the four known perfect women was Maryam. She was loved by Allah because of her religious qualities:

"O Maryam! Worship your Lord: prostrate yourself, and bow down (in prayer) with those who bow down"[3:43].

Another was the wife of Pharaoh:

"And Allah sets forth, as an example to those who believe, the wife of Pharaoh: behold she said:

"O my Lord, build for me, in nearness to Thee, a mansion in the Garden' "[66:11].

The Prophet (s.a.w) loved his wives because of their religious qualities. Aisha once related the fine qualities of Zainab:

"(Zainab) was the one who was somewhat equal in rank with me in the eyes of Allah's Messenger (s.a.w), and I have never seen a woman more advanced in religious piety than Zainab, more God-conscious, more truthful, more alive to the ties of blood, more generous and having more sense of self-sacrifice in practical life and having more charitable disposition and thus more closer to Allah, the Exalted, than her." Ahh, you think, but you'll never find such a woman!

Well, if that was true, Allah would not have described her in the first place, and furthermore those qualities were emanating from the women described above. Islam deals with reality, not fiction. Sure, the perfect woman doesn't exist, yet

"if you take a dislike to them, it may be that you dislike a thing, and Allah brings about through it a great deal of good"[4:19].

Remember also that you are not perfect either. KNOWING WHO SHE IS To find that pious woman, there are two steps to be taken, and that firstone relies on your personal observation.

In surah Nisaa, Allah asks the believing women that they should

"lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments,"

and also that they "should not strike their feet in order to draw attention to their hidden ornaments"[24:31].

If you notice a woman acting modestly, being not too obvious through her actions (by lowering her voice when around men), one who attempts to hide her attractions (which includes her external beauty as well as her internal charms), then you know she has some of those precious qualities. When you see a woman unashamedly flirting, unconcerned about her revealing clothes, and freely converses with males- keep far, far away. I'm sure when you get married you want your wife to devote her love to you, not to twenty other "just good friends".

Through simple observation, you can get a glimpse of her nature; for example, the way she stands when conversing, how she maintains eye-contact, her clothes, where she spends her time etc. Look for her strong points, and don't stress on her weak ones. Yet, after all this, we still have to come to the most important topic.

You can look all you want ather, set a private investigator to track her movements, read her diaries (all of which I consider extreme and unIslamic), yet, my dear brother, no-one knows her heart and intentions, no-one knows whether she will turn sour or more religious, or whether you are suitable for each other, except for Allah.

Choosing the Desired Wife

All praise is due to Allah, Lord of the worlds, the Merciful, the Hearer of supplications, and peace and blessings upon our beloved and humble prophet Muhammad,and upon his family
and companions.
When marriage is spoken of during these "Modern" times, Muslims become horrified, conjuring
images of an arranged marriage, trying to find that "perfect" companion, how much of a financial
burden it will become, and so on.
The reality is that Islam came to solve these problems, not exacerbate them, yet unfortunately we have integrated our local traditions and customs with Islam so that marriage has become a major concern for a man rather than a delightful experience.
When living in a free, perverted and corrupt Western society, the Muslim male youth finds many
temptations and tests, as a result of mixing with females, which he must face and overcome.
He must constantly resist these temptations, which are thrown at him in the streets, on the media, and at work.And so the wisdom of the Prophet (s.a.w) echoes on, when he said:
"O young men, those among you who can support a wife should marry, for it restrains the eyes from casting(evil glances), and preserves one from immorality..." When seriously considering marriage,
you must pose the question to yourself as to just what kind of wife you want, what her qualities should be in order to establish an Islamic and peaceful household, and how you will know who she is.
As Muslims, we believe that Allah wants the best for us, and that His Prophet (s.a.w) illustrated this through his own life. So note that by following the advise of our own Creator,and that of His beloved servant, we can only be successful. WHOM TO MARRY Islam isclear on the kind of wife you should be seeking.
The Prophet (s.a.w) said: "A woman may be married for 4 reasons:
1.for her property, 2.her status, 3.her beauty, and 4.her religion; so try to get one who is religious,
may you be blessed." This specifically defines just what kind of a companion we are seeking,for if we marry her for anything other than her religious piety, our marriage is bound to fall into misery. True, beauty and charm is hard to resist, yet beauty does not last forever and does not guarantee you her obedience and religiousness.Financial status is dynamic, and so is worldly status, yet religion strongly establishes a household, and it may be that through your intention of
marrying her for her religion, the rest is given to you anyway.
In another hadith, the Prophet (s.a.w) said:
"The whole world is a provision, and the best object of benefit of the world is the pious woman."
Imagine! Nothing in this world is as valuable as a pious woman! This point has been stressed many
times by Rasulallah (s.a.w), who himself, when asked what three things he loved the most, mentioned
a pious woman. Once the following ayah was revealed:
"They who hoard up gold and silver and do not spend it in the way of Allah, unto them give tidings of
a painful doom. On that day when it will (all)be heated in the fire of Jahannam, and their foreheads andflanks and their backs will be branded therewith (and it will be said to them): 'Here is what you hoarded for yourselves,now taste of what you used to hoard' "[al-Taubah: 34-35].
Umar (r.a.a) has been quoted tosay that, when this ayah was revealed, he approached
the Prophet (s.a.w), submitting that the ayah weighed heavily on the minds of the Sahaba. Rasulallah (s.a.w) replied that the best thing to be treasured is the devoted wife who causes pleasure when seen,obeys orders instantly and takes full care of herself and her husbands property when he is away.
Abu Bakr once asked Rasulallah (s.a.w) what was the best thing to be treasured, and he (s.a.w) replied: "the tongue in remembrance of Allah, the heart filled with thanks to Allah, and a pious wife who helps in virtuous deeds". Look at how valuable such a woman is in the sight of Allah!How can a man live unhappily with such a person.

Allah, the Almighty, says, " And they have been commanded no more than this: to worship
Allah, offering him sincere devotion" [98:5]

Allah’s Command to His first and foremost creature, man, has been connected with only two things; the first is worship, which means complete obedience His Divine Commands; and the second is sincerity, which is purifying the heart from doubt and polytheism. Worship is exterior aspect of devotion, while sincerity is an interior one.

Worship is connected with parts of the body, whereas sincerity is connected with the heart. Worship is ostensible, while sincerity is secret and hidden. This means that the true Muslim obeys Allah’s commands completely by his organs, and has sincerity in his heart. It is clear that sincerity is part of belief. Nay, rather it is the very belief.

Motives, which lead someone to a certain action, push him to perfect it, and encourage him to bear hardship and spend a lot for it, are numerous and various.

Some of these motives are closely linked to work, and could be noticed with deeds and actions. Others are distant and require some effort and insight in order to be realized. Some are so clear and obvious that raise no disputation or disagreement. Others are so ambiguous and hidden inside the human soul that they bring about a lot of disputation and disagreement to define or evaluate.

Some motives are instinctive, combined within human nature and urge man to maintain his existence, its safety, perfection and continuity.Some motives are acquired and stem from the soul after man gets to know his Lord, himself and what has been prepared for him of the everlasting blessings in the Garden of Paradise, as wide as the heavens and earth. The more good beneficial knowledge a human being acquires as demanded by Allah, the nobler the motive which urges him to great deeds and high morals are.

The more man is far away from the knowledge leading to Allah, the lower the psychological motive and the more debased deeds and traits are.Good deeds manifest firm belief. And belief without deeds is like a tree without fruits.

Moreover, good deeds are the price for Paradise and the only way to it. In Paradise, believers assume their positions according to the size and multitude of their righteous deeds. To this effect, Allah All Mighty says,

“Enter you in the Garden, because of (the good) which you did (in the world).” [XVI: 32] “And to all are (assigned) degrees according to the deeds which they have done.” [46; 19]The value of a certain act depends , before anything else, upon the motive(s) behind it.

Moreover, only motives can determine the real value of any action. If someone, for instance, finds a valuable silver coin in the street and bends down to pick it up with the intention to look for its owner, he would be considered a good-doer and will be well-rewarded. If, however, the same coin is picked up by someone with the intention of taking it for themselves, he would be considered an evil-doer and will be severely punished. Both acts are but one and the same;
but it is merely intention which makes the former good, and the latter bad.

It was narrated
on the authority of Omar bin Al-Khattab, who said, ‘I heard the Messenger of Allah saying, “Verily, deeds are (rewarded) according to intentions; and, verily, everyone will gets what
he has intended.

Whosoever migrates for the sake of Allah and His Messenger, his migration will be
(considered accordingly) for the sake of Allah and His Messenger. But whosoever migrates
for the sake of a worldly benefit or a woman to marry, his migration will be (considered as having been done) for the purpose for which he has migrated.” Allah, the Almighty, also

“He (Allah), Who created death and life that He may try you - which of you is best in deed.” (67. 2)

Fudhail bin Ayadh interpreted the clause “Which of you is best in deed” as “which of you are the most sincere and correct in deed.”

And when he was asked, “O Abu Ali! Which deed is the most sincere and correct?”,
he replied, “If an act is done out of sincerity, but is not correct, it will not be accepted.
And if it is correct but lacks sincerity, it will not be accepted, either. No act will be accepted, unless it is correct, sincere and in pursuit of the good pleasure of Allah:

“We feed you for the sake of Allah alone. No reward do we desire from you nor thanks.” [76; 6] Correctness of deed means being in agreement with Prophetic Sunnah (the tradition of the holy Prophet (PBUH).

This is because Allah has said, “Say if you do love Allah, follow me. Allah will love you and forgive you your sins, for Allah is Oft -forgiving, Most Merciful” (III. 31) Then Fudhail recited the verse, “Whosoever expects to meet his Lord, let him work righteousness, and in the worship of his Lord admit no one as partner.”[18.110]

Allah has also said, “And We shall turn to whatever deeds they did (in this life) and We shall make such deeds as floating dust scattered about.” [25,23]

The deeds mentioned in this verse are said to mean the deeds which are not in agreement with the Sunnah and those which have been done for the sake of others than Allah.In a Divine Hadith, Allah All High says, “I am the Self-Sufficient, Who need no partners.

Whosoever does an act for the sake of others with Me, his act will be considered merely for the partner (whom he associates with Me); and I am exempt from it.”In another Divine Hadith He, Glory be to Him, says,

“Sincerity is one of My Secrets; I put it in the hearts of those whom I love of My slaves.”* * *Sincerity in seeking the good pleasure of Allah, exalts the worldly act and turns it into an accepted worship.

Thus, any act on the part of man for earning sustenance turns into an accepted worship if the following requirements are fulfilled: It must be fundamentally lawful, and intended for self-sufficiency. It should be spend on man’s family and those under his care. It should be
intended to be in service of people in general and Muslims in particular. It must not entail disobedience to Allah or distract man from performing the obligatory or religious obligations.

It is narrated that a pious person once saw a man busy at praying in a mosque without doing
any work.

He asked him “who feeds you?” “My brother”, replied the man. The righteous man said, “ Your brother is more devoted than you are.”Imam Muslim also narrated in his Sahih that the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, ‘No Muslim plants a plant or cultivates a plant, so that a bird or a human being eats from, it will be a charity for him.”Thus, good intentions turn mere worldly deeds turn into worships and deeds.

Man’s responsibilities towards himself, his family and children turns into good and generously rewarded deeds if accompanied by good intentions. The prophet (PBUH) said, “Whatever you feed yourself is a charity for you, and whatever you feed your wife is a charity for you, and whatever you feed your servant is a charity for you.

” Sa’ad bin Abi Waqqas narrated that the Messenger of Allah, (PBUH), said, “you will certainly never spend anything seeking the good pleasure of Allah but you will be rewarded for it.” One may wonder when one gets to know that only sincerity in seeking the good pleasure of Allah is considered as a good deed if man is prevented from doing such a good deed by certain irresistible circumstances.In the battle of ‘Usrah, some people came to the prophet (PBUH). They wanted to fight against the infidels with him.

They offered their lives in the Cause of Allah; but the prophet (PBUH) could not recruit them. They went back because they were sad because of being left behind the battlefield. The following Koranic verse was revealed about them:“Nor (is there blame) on those who came to you to be provided with mounts, when you said, ‘I can find no mounts for you,’ they turned back, while their eyes streaming with tears of grief that they could not find anything to spend (for Jihad).” (IX; 92) The Prophet (PBUH) praised their belief and sincerity and addressed the army going ahead for the battle, “There are some people left behind us in Medina. we do not walk on a mountain pass nor a valley but they are with us. They have been excusably detained.

” Moreover, the Prophet (PUBH) considers illness and travel, when accompanied by sincerity in seeking the Reward of Allah as a reason for getting the reward of good deeds, which one used to do when one was healthy and at home. To this effect, he (PBUH) said “ If a slave (of Allah) becomes ill or travels, a better reward will be written for him for the good things that he used to do before his illness or travel.”

If hypocrisy, which is the opposite of sincerity, sneaks into good deeds or even worships and devotional services, it turns them into deeds worthy of blame and punishment. To this effect, Allah Almighty says, “ Woe unto the worshippers who are neglectful of their prayers, those who (want but) to be seen (of men) but refuse (to supply) (even) neighborly needs.” [107:4-7]

Whenever hypocrisy creeps into spending money, it renders it void and valueless in the sight of Allah. To this effect, Allah All Mighty says, “O you who believe render not your charity void by reminders of your generosity or by injury like those who spend their substance to be seen of men but believe neither in Allah nor in the Last Day. They are in parable like a hard barren rock, on which is a little soil: on it falls heavy rain which leaves it (just) a bare stone; they will be able to do nothing with ought they have earned, and Allah guided not those who reject faith.” [11:264] The Prophet also says, “Be sincere in your religion; a little amount of work will be enough for you”

* * *Here are some of the sayings of some scholars about sincerity:- Sincerity is that man’s secret acts must be better than his open ones. Hypocrisy is that man’s open deeds are better than his secret ones. And truthfulness in sincerity is that man’s interior should be better than his exterior.- Sincerity is to single Allah, the Almighty, for obedience and devotion.

One should purify his deeds from eye-service.- A sincere person is never a hypocrite; and a truthful one is never self-conceited. Sincerity is never perfected except by truthfulness just as truthfulness is never perfected except by sincerity; and they both can never be perfected without patient. - Sincerity is being heedless of people’s observation of man’s deeds and being in continuous observation of the Creator. Whosoever beautifies himself for people with what he does not possess drops in Allah’s estimation.- It has been said that abandoning work for the sake of people is hypocrisy; and performing any act for the sake of people is polytheism.

But if Allah keeps you away from them both, that is sincerity.- Sincerity is the secret between Allah and His slave; it should be known by no one else. - Sincerity is that you should not seek any witness on your deeds other than Allah, and that you should seek no reward from any one except Him.- Whosoever feels hat he is sincere enough, his sincerity lacks sincerity.An when a true believer gets rid of being pride of his sincerity, he will become of the chosen sincere elite. This is because the hardest thing to man is sincerity, for it has no benefit from it.* * *Before he embraced Islam, Zaid Al-Khaiyr was one of the bravest and most generous people. When the news of the Prophet (PBUH) reached him. He desired to know about his religion; so he prepared his camel, invited prominent men of his people to visit Yathrib (Medina). When they came nearer to Medina, they went straight towards the Prophet’s mosque and made their animals kneel down at its door. It so happened that when they entered, the Prophet (PBUH) was on the pulpit delivering a sermon. They were highly impressed by his sermon. They were amazed by the attachment of Muslims to him, their careful listening to him, and their being affected by his sayings. When the Messenger (PBUH) saw them, he said, “I am better for you than ‘Uzza and all what you worship. I am better for you than the black camel (metaphorical expression of the most precious wealth in Arabia), which you worship other than Allah.” When the Prophet (PBUH) finished his speech, Zaid, the knight, stood up among the crowds of Muslims having the appearance of one of the most handsome men with perfect countenance and a tall stature and began speaking out with his loud voice, “O Muhammad, I bear witness that there is no god but Allah and that you are the Messenger of Allah.” The Prophet came towards him and said “Who are you?” He replied, “I am Zaid, the knight”. The Prophet (PBUH) said, “Nay, but you are Zaid the good, not Zaid the knight. All Praise be to Allah, Who brought you from your homeland and made your heart soft for accepting Islam.” Then the Prophet (PBUH) took him in honor to his house with some of his Companions among whom were Omar.At home, the Prophet (PBUH) put a pillow for Zaid. It was difficult for him to lean on it at the presence of the Prophet (PBUH). He said, “O Messenger of Allah! I swear by Allah I cannot lean in your presence!” The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “O Zaid! All men who were described to me proved to be inferior to the image I had made about them, except for you, Zaid. O Zaid! you have two traits that are beloved by Allah and His Messenger.” He asked, “What are they, O Messenger of Allah?” The Prophet (PBUH) replied, “ Patience and Clemency.” “Praise to Allah that He has made me as Allah and His Messenger like! O Messenger of Allah! Just give me three hundred knights and I guarantee to you that I shall attack the Romans and defeat them.” The Prophet (PBUH) appreciated his courage and said, “What a (great) man you are!” Then all of Zaid’s people who were with him embraced Islam as soon as he did. When he wanted to go back to his people’s land, the Prophet (PBUH) bade him farewell him and said, “What a (great) man this is!” On his way back he passed away. And it was not a long time between his acceptance of Islam and his death; but his sincerity for Islam and his great ambitions for the spread of this religion sufficed him from lots of work blemished by hypocrisy. In this context, the Messenger of Allah addressed one of his venerable Companions, “O Mou’ath! Be sincere in your religion, a little work suffices you.”



































Some Examples of Great People(in Islam)

There are many great men and women in history. They were rare examples of piety, morals, and the best qualities a human being can ever have.

Allah the Exalted has told us in the Holy Qur'an a lot about such men and women; on the top being the infallible Messenger Muhammad sallallahu `alaihi wa sallam and the other Messengers `alaihimus salaam who were great examples of patience, faith and Jihad in the way of Allah. They also fought the people of heresies and they were really the ideal people to be followed. Allah the Exalted described the morals and manners of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu `alaihi wa sallam as:

"And verily, you (o Muhammad) are on an exalted (standard of) character." (68:4)

Narrated Anas radiyallahu `anhu: "I have never touched a velvet or silk that was more tender than the hand of Allah's Messenger sallallahu `alaihi wa sallam and I have never smelt any perfume more nice than the smell of the Messenger's body. I served the Messenger ten years, he never said "of" (a puff of uneasiness) to me and he never asked me about something I had not done (why not?) and he never asked me about something I had ever done (why?)." (Bukhari and Muslim)

The caliph of the Messenger sallallahu `alaihi wa sallam, Abu Bakr radiyallahu `anhu, supported the Messenger sallallahu `alaihi wa sallam by money and jihad by himself and was the first to believe the Prophet sallallahu `alaihi wa sallam. When some people apostated from Islam after the Prophet had died, Abu Bakr bravely stood up against them and said: (By Allah, if they refuse to pay - in zakat for Allah's sake) a goat (in another narration, a goat rope) they used to give to the Messenger sallallahu `alaihi wa sallam I will fight them.

Umar ibn al Khattab radiyallahu `anhu, though he was the Emir of the believers, used to carry flour on his back for Muslims and also used o cook for the orphans at night. The Satan used to run away from Umar's way, as reported (in hadeeth), because of his piety and closeness to Allah.

Uthman bin Affan radiyallahu `anhu, the third Caliph, financed a Muslim expedition that was called "The Expedition of a Hard Time", as Muslims were very poor at that time. And Ali bin Abi Talib radiyallahu `anhu, the fourth Caliph, was appointed by the Messenger sallallahu `alaihi wa sallam as a leader of Muslims in a war and he, sallallahu `alaihi wa sallam, said: "I will give the leadership to someone whom Allah and His Messenger love." That was Ali bin Abi Talib, radiyallahu `anhu, the great brave fighter.

Rabee` ibn Amir radiyallahu `anhu, when he went as an ambassador the the leader of the Persians, refused to bow to Rustom, the Persian Monarch. And he said (meaning), "We have come to take you from the worship of creation to the worship of the Creator."

Faith makes the impossible look possible.

In the battle of Badr, Umair ibn al-Hamam al-Ansari radiyallahu `anhu heard the Messenger sallallahu `alaihi wa sallam saying: "He who fights facing the enemy and not (turning away) showing his back to him will enter Paradise." Umair was chewing some dates, he threw them up and said: "It is a long life then, if I wait to eat up these dates, they will impede me from Paradise." Then he fought facing the enemy and was killed as a martyr. When the Messenger was told about him, He sallallahu `alaihi wa sallam said: "He is now in Paradise, enjoying its bounties."

Amr ibn al Jamouh radiyallahu `anhu was disabled. The Messenger sallallahu `alaihi wa sallam told him, "Do not worry (about Jihad), you are limping and there is no blame on you." And Allah revealed, regarding Jihad of the disabled, "...there is no restriction on the lame..." (24:61)

But all this did not stop Ibn al-Jamouh to fight in the way of Allah. He said, "I wish to enter Paradise limping", then he went and fought until he died as a martyr.

Another example of great men is Abu Dijana who made himself a shield for the Messenger sallallahu `alaihi wa sallam on the Day of Uhud to protect him against the enemy's arrows. There are many other great people to mention here but the space does not allow. The books of Islamic history have numerous examples of such great people who sold themselves for the pleasure of Allah.

Allah the Exalted says in this regard:

"Men who have been true to their covenant with Allah (i.e. they have gone out for Jihad and showed not their backs to the disbelievers); of them are some who have fulfilled their obligations (i.e. have been martyred); and some of them are still waiting, but they have never changed in the least (i.e. never proved treacherous to their covenant with Allah)." (33:23)

Shaykh Abdullah bin Muhammad al-Mu`taz

Al Insaan - Dhaalika al Makhlooq al `Ajeeb

The Great Human Consciousness of `Umar ibn al-Khattaab

Once a caravan came to Madinah. It had women and children too with it. `Umar said to Abdul Rahman ibn `Auf, "Can you stand guard on them tonight?" So `Umar, the second caliph, and he, kept awake that night together and kept vigil over the caravan. During that nightly vigil they both offered Tahajjud (late night) prayer as well. `Umar on hearing a baby's cry and approaching, said to the mother, "Fear Allah and do look after your child carefully." Saying this he came back to his own position. Once again he heard it crying, and going over to her mother once again gave her the same advice. When during the last part of the night the child cried once again, `Umar came to its mother and said, "Woe to you! You appear not to be a good mother. How is it that your child could not sleep peacefully during the night." The woman little suspecting that she was speaking to the Amir of the believers, said in reply, "May Allah bless you, O man, you have pestered me several times during the night. I want to wean it forcefully (before time), but the child is intractable." `Umar asked her, "And pray, why wean it forcefully?" She said in reply, "Because `Umar grants allowance only for such children that have been weaned." `Umar asked her, "How old is your child?" And she told him it was only a few months old. And `Umar asked the woman not to be hasty in weaning her child. Then he led the morning prayer in such a state that his weeping made the recital of the Quran inaudible and unintelligible. At the end of the prayer he said, "`Umar is ruined. He killed the children of the believers!" And at this, he ordered the crier to proclaim in the town of Madinah that the mothers should not wean their children only for the sake of allowance for the suckling. From now on, every child, suckling or weaned, shall receive a stipend. And it was also proclaimed throughout the length and the breadth of the Islamic state. Unparalleled in the Entire History of Mankind

By Allah! The entire history of mankind is unable to produce such a brilliant and glorious incident. None among the civilizations of the world can present any personage like `Umar. He kept awake the whole night, keeping guard over the caravan and the caravan slept in peace. And we should keep in mind that he was the head of the Islamic state, and wielded great authority and power that had conquered the then mighty empires of Rome and Persia. And in spite of all that he did what a petty guard detailed to patrol the vicinity of a caravan in its sojourn would not do. He drew the attention of the crying child's mother to her babe and asked her to restrain it from crying. Is there anyone who can mete out that treatment to the children in a passing Caravan, like `Umar? Who is there among the greatest personages of the history of mankind who can even touch the great human consciousness of `Umar?

อิบาดะห์ที่ถูกต้องมาจากไหน อิบาดะห์ที่ถูกใจใครนำมา

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركا ته

โอ้บรรดา ผู้ปลื้มปิติกับรอมฏอนที่กำลังมาเยือนทั้งหลายครับ


นี่ก็อีกไม่ถึงสัปดาห์แล้วใช่ไหมครับ ที่วันของผู้ศรัทธาเขาจะยินดีและตื่นเต้นที่จะลิ้มรสชาติ


แล้ววันนี้!ท่านเตรียมแล้วหรือยัง และแสวงหาแล้วหรือยัง ซึ่งความรู้ของเดือนรอมฎอนครับ

ท่านรอซูล(ซ.ล)กล่าวว่า "บางทีผู้ถือศีลอดนั้น ส่วนได้ ของเขา จากการถือศีลอดของเขาก็คือ


(บันทึกโดยอิบนูมาญะฮฺและอะหมัด รายงานจากท่านอะบีฮูรอยเราะฮฺ ด้วยสายสืบที่ศอเหี้ยะ)

สาเหตุที่เป็นเช่นนั้นก็เพราะว่า คนเรามักจะไม่ตระหนัก ไม่เรียนรู้ ไม่ใส่ใจ และไม่ศึกษา ถึงข้อเท็จจริงของการถือศีลอดที่อัลลอฮ(ซ.บ)ทรงใช้ให้เราปฏิบัติ ทรงห้ามให้เราปฏิบัติในเดือนดังกล่าว จึงนำมาซึ่งความสูญเปล่า ความบกพร่องด้วยการพูดหรือการกระทำที่ทำให้ผลบุญและการตอบแทนนั้นสูญเสียไป






ท่านเตรียมตัวแล้วหรือยัง ท่านแสวงหาแล้วหรือยัง หรือท่านจะบอกว่า เตรียมตัวอะไรกัน? นั่นนะซิ

เตรียมตัวอะไรครับ ...เตรียมตัวสอบ เตรียมตัวไปทำงาน ไปตลาด ไปสอน ไปเรียน ไปดูหนัง..ไปดูบอลหรือไปเดทกับแฟนหละ อืม... เราทุกคนคงจะเตรียมหลายๆอย่างในแต่ละวันนะครับ

แต่ถามว่า ท่านเตรียมทำไมกัน? ก็เพื่อ "ให้สอบได้คะแนนดี ใช่ไหม? "เข้างานได้ตรงเวลา .ใช่ไหม? เพื่อเป็นเสบียงของการอยู่รอดในดุนยา ใช่ไหม? ก็เป็นสิ่งที่ดีนะครับ แต่หากจะถามท่านว่า ท่านเตรียมอย่างไรเพื่อรับรอมฎอนครับ บางคนที่ยังไม่ใส่ใจในวันนี้ อาจจะถามกลับว่า เตรียมทำไมหรอ? เดือนรอมฎอน แล้วไง!ไม่เห็นต้องเตรียมเลย ทำไมต้องเตรียมด้วย .....นั่นนะซิ ทำไมต้องเตรียมด้วยครับ


แต่ละวันท่านเตรียมอะไร ..เสบียงดุนยา ดุนยา ดุนยา เท่านั้นนะหรอ แต่ไม่เตรียมอะไรเพื่ออาคีเราะห์เลยหรือ

หลายๆคนมักจะบอกว่า เดือนรอมฎอนดีอย่างนั้น ดีอย่างนี้ บวชแล้วดี อย่างนั้น ได้ผลบุญเท่านั้นเท่านี้ ขอโทษนะครับ ท่านลืมอะไรบางอย่างหรือเปล่าครับ..อะไรน่ะหรือ? ก็ลืมเตรียมตัวไงครับ ก็การงานที่ดีขึ้นอยู่กับความพร้อมของความรู้มิใช่หรือ? ความสมบูรณ์ของอิบาดะห์ที่ทำขึ้นอยู่กับความรู้มิใช่หรือ? การตอบรับของอัลลอฮ(ซ.บ) กับอิบาดะห์ขึ้นอยู่กับความรู้ที่มาจากอัลลอฮว่า รอซูลว่าอย่างแท้จริงมิใช่หรือ?

หากเราไม่เตรียม เราจะทำได้อย่างมีประสิทธิภาพได้ยังไง.... จริงไหมครับ เช่น จะละหมาด หากไม่เตรียมตัว จะละหมาดได้อย่างมีความคุชัวะ มีความสงบรึ เช่นเดียวกัน การถือศีลอด ก็ต้องอาศัยการเตรียมตัว เตรียมสภาพ ร่างกายและจิตใจเมือนๆกัน ฉะนั้น เพื่อท่านจะได้ปรับตัวเองได้อย่างวรวดเร็ว ได้ผลบุญเต็มเม็ดเต็มหน่วย อยากไหม ชอบไหม ที่เราจะได้คะแนนเต็มร้อย แน่นอนคงอยากซิ เช่นกันอยากให้ผลบุญเต็มๆไหม ถูกตอบรับไหมก็ต้องเตรียมตัวซิครับ อย่ามองข้ามการเตรียมตัวซิ

นักมวยยังต้องซ้อมเป็นเดือน จะสอบยังต้องเตรียมเป็นเดือน เตรียมจัดงานยังต้องเตรียมเป็นเดือน

"ไฉนเลยเตรียมเพื่อรอมฏอน เราจะไม่เตรียมตัวครับ"

นี่ก็ไม่ถึงสัปดาห์แล้ว เตรียมซะเถิด แสวงกันเถิดครับ ซึ่งความรู้ที่สอดคล้องกับหลักการอิสลามครับ


เป็นไปได้ไหม หากการทำอามาลของท่านทั้งชีวิต ทั้งเดือนรอมฎอน แต่อามาลของท่านกลับถูกปฏิเสธ ณ อัลลอฮ(ซ.บ)อย่างสิ้นเชิงครับ คงไม่คิดหรอกนะครับว่าเป็นไปได้ไง ฉันก็ละหมาดนะ ซะกาตนะ ถือบวชนะ เป็นไปได้ไงอัลลอฮ(ซ.บ)จะปฏิเสธครับ แต่พี่น้องรู้ไหม อัลลอฮกล่าวไว้ รอซูลกล่าวไว้ครับว่า เป็นไปได้ หากอามาลที่ท่านทำนั้น ปราศจากซึ่งที่มาที่ไปจากอัลลอฮว่า รอซูลว่าปราศจากซึ่งหลักการของอิสลามครับ เพราะอัลลอฮ(ซ.บ)ทรงตรัสไว้ในซูเราะห์อาละอิมรอน อายะฮที่ 85 ว่า "และผู้ใดแสวงหาศาสนาหนึ่งศาสนาใดอื่นจากอิสลามแล้ว ศาสนานั้นจะไม่ถูกตอบรับจากเขาเป็นอันขาด และในปรโลกเขาจะอยู่ในหมู่ผู้ขาดทุน"

คือ อัลลอฮ(ซ.บ)จะไม่ทรงรับศาสนานั้นจากเขาเป็นอันขาด

และมีรายงานจากท่านหญิงอาอีซะห์ (ร.ด) รายงานว่า ท่านรอซูล(ซ.ล)กล่าวว่า....."บุคคลใดก็ตามที่ประกอบภารกิจหนึ่ง (ในเรื่องของศาสนา)ที่ไม่มีอยู่ในศาสนา (อิสลาม)ของเรา สิ่งนั้นคือสิ่งที่ถูกปฏิเสธ" (บันทึกโดยอิหม่ามมุสลิม)

แล้วอย่างนี้ ท่านกลัวไหม ท่านกังวลไหม แล้วท่านจะใส่ใจอีกไหมครับ เมื่ออัลลอฮว่าอย่างนี้ รอซูลว่าอย่างนี้แล้ว


ท่านก็ต้องไปตรวจสอบซิ ไปสอบถามซิ ไปทบทวนซิ ว่าอะไรบ้างท่านปฏิบัติมัน ท่านยึดถือมัน โดยปราศจากหลักฐานที่มาจากอัลกุรอานและหะดิษรองรับครับ ท่านลองทบทวนนะ ว่า อามาลที่ท่านปฏิบัติเป็นประจำทุกวันและต้องถูกสอบสวนเป็นประการแรกในวันกียามัตและเป็นหนึ่งอามาลที่ท่านเองใช้ในการแสวงหาผลบุญในเดือนรอมฏอน นั่นก็คือ การละหมาด ท่านลองดูซิ ว่าทุกอิริยาบท ทุกคำพูด ทุกคำกล่าวที่ท่านได้เปล่งออกมานั้น มาจากอัลลอฮว่า รอซุลว่าหรือไม่ครับ หรือวันนี้ ท่านได้แต่ละหมาดเพียงก้มๆเงยๆ ท่านทำอามาลต่างๆเพียงเพราะตามเขากันมา เขาว่ากันว่า หรือตามพ่อแม่ ตามปู่ย่า ตายาย ตามโต๊ะครู ตามใจฉันที่อยากทำ ตามความถูกใจที่อยากทำ สาว่ามันจะถูก สาว่ามันจะดี สาว่ามันจะถูกตอบรับครับ ทำไมผมถึงบอกว่า ท่านตามเขาเหล่านั้นหรือเปล่าครับ ผมไม่ได้บอกนะครับว่า เขาเหล่านั้นจะทำผิดนะ ทำไม่ถูกนะ แต่หากเขาเหล่านั้นได้กระทำที่มาจากอัลลอฮว่ารอซูลว่าจริงๆก็อัลอัมดุลิลลอฮครับ ท่านก็รอดปลอดภัยครับ แต่หากเขาเหล่านั้นปฏิบัติกันมาเช่นกัน ท่านเองนั่นแหละที่จะเป็นคนที่ขาดทุนในวันกียามัตครับเพราะการงานใครก็การงานมัน และผมไม่ได้หมายรวมว่า เขาเหล่าจะตกนรกนะ เขาจะมีความผิดนะ หากในสิ่งที่เขาทำนั้น ไม่ถูกต้องตามที่อัลลฺอฮว่า รอซูลว่าครับหากเขาเหล่านั้นเสียชีวิตลงแล้ว..อินชาอัลลอฮ เพราะอะไรนั่นหรอ ก็เพราะอัลลอฮจะสอบสวนเท่าเขาที่ได้ศึกษามา เท่าที่เขาเรียนรู้มา เท่าที่ความสามารถในการแสวงหาของเขานั่นมี เท่าที่การเข้าถึงศาสนานั้นครับ ซึ่งแน่นอน ถามท่านว่า การรับรู้ในสมัยของเขานั้นย่อมไม่ใช่การรับรู้ในสมัยของเราเป็นแน่ ที่มีทั้งหนังสือ มีทั้งการบรรยาย มี่ทั้งทางอินเทอร์เน็ต และอื่นๆอีกมากมายที่สามารถตรวจสอบได้ว่า อะไรคือสิ่งที่อัลลอฮว่า รอซูลว่า อะไรคือสื่งที่ไม่ใช่สิ่งที่อัลลอฮว่า รอซูลว่าครับ ซึ่งแน่นอนย่อมไม่เป็นข้ออ้ างสำหรับการสอบสวนเลยนะครับ ว่าฉันไม่รู้ ฉันตามเขามา และฉันไม่อยากแสวงหาอะไรครับ เพราะฉันรู้แล้ว ฉันทำมา 20 ปี 30 ปี 40 ปี จะผิดได้ไง หลายคน อาจจะหลอกตัวเองว่าตัวเองนั่นรู้ว่าผิด แต่ไม่กล้ายอมรับ ไม่กล้ารับความจริง ไม่กล้าเปลี่ยน เพราะขืนยอมรับก็เท่ากับว่า เราทำผิดมาทั้งชีวิตล่ะซิ เราตายตอนนี้เราตกนรกอ่ะซิ ก็อามาลจะพอที่ไหนเล่า นี่แหละครับ ท่านต้องรู้ ท่านต้องเข้าใจว่า ว่าอัลลอฮทรงเมตตา อัลลอฮทรงยินดีและรับการอภัยนะครับ หากท่านสำนึก หากท่านแสวงหา หากท่านจริงจังครับ

In Islam, the Ṣaḥābah (Arabic: الصحابة‎) "Companions" were the companions of the Islamic prophet Muḥammad. This form is plural; the singular is masculine sahābiyy, feminine sahābiyyah. A list of the best-known companions can be found in the List of sahābah.

Definitions of "Companion"
Most Sunnis regard anyone who, in the state of faith, saw Muhammad to be a sahābiyy[1]. Lists of prominent companions usually run to fifty or sixty names, being the people most closely associated with Muhammad. However, there were clearly many others who had some contact with Muhammad, and their names and biographies were recorded in religious reference texts such as Muḥammad ibn Sa'd's early Kitāb at-Tabāqat al-Kabīr.

Muhammad bin Ahmad Efendi (death 1622), who is also known with the sobriquet "Nişancızâde", the author of the book entitled Mir’ât-i-kâinât (in Turkish), states as follows: "Once a male or female Muslim has seen Hadrat Muhammad only for a short time, no matter whether he/she is a child or an adult, he/she is called a Sahaba with the proviso of dying with as a believer; the same rule applies to blind Muslims who have talked with the Prophet at least once. If a disbeliever sees the Prophet and then joins the Believers after the demise of Muhammad, he is not a Sahaba; nor is a person called a Sahaba if he converted to Islam afterwards although he had seen the Prophet Muhammad as a Muslim. A person who converts to Islam after being a Sahaba and then becomes a Believer again after the demise of Prophet Muhammad, is a Sahaba."

It was important to identify the companions because later scholars accepted their testimony (the hadith, or traditions) as to the words and deeds of Muhammad, the occasions on which the Qur'an was revealed, and various important matters of Islamic history and practice (sunnah). The testimony of the companions, as it was passed down through chains of trusted narrators (isnads), was the basis of the developing Islamic tradition.

Other links in the Chain of Isnad
Because the hadith were not written down until many years after the death of Muhammad, the isnads, or chains of transmission, always have several links. The first link is preferably a companion, who had direct contact with Muhammad. The companion then related the tradition to a tābi‘īn, the companion of the companion. Tābi‘īn had no direct contact with Muhammad, but did have direct contact with the sahāba. The tradition then would have been passed from the Tābi‘īn to the Tābi‘ at-Tābi‘īn, the third link.

The second and third links in the chain of transmission were also of great interest to Muslim scholars, who treated of them in biographical dictionaries and evaluated them for bias and reliability. Shi'a and Sunni apply different metrics.

Numbers of companions
Some Muslims assert that there were more than two hundred thousand companions. One hundred twenty four thousand are believed to have witnessed the last sermon Muhammad delivered after making his last pilgrimage, or Hajj, to Mecca.

The book entitled Istî’âb fî ma’rifat-il-Ashâb by Hafidh Yusuf bin Muhammad bin Qurtubi (death 1071) consists of two thousand and seven hundred and seventy biographies of male Sahaba and three hundred and eighty-one biographies of female Sahaba. According to an observation in the book entitled Mawâhib-i-ladunniyya, an untold number of persons had already converted to Islam by the time Muhammad died. There were ten thousand Sahaba by the time Mecca was conquered and seventy thousand Sahaba during the Battle of Tabuk in 630.

Ulema (علماء, ‘Ulamā’, singular: عالِم, ‘Ālim, "scholar") refers to the educated class of Muslim legal scholars engaged in the several fields of Islamic studies. They are best known as the arbiters of shari‘a law. While the ulema are well versed in legal jurisprudence being Islamic lawyers, some of them also go on to specialize in other fields, such as philosophy, dialectical theology or Quranic hermeneutics or explanation. The fields studied, and the importance given them, will vary from tradition to tradition, or even from seminary to seminary

In a broader sense, the term ulema is used to describe the body of Muslim clergy who have completed several years of training and study of Islamic sciences, such as a mufti, qadi, faqih, or muhaddith. Some Muslims include under this term the village mullahs, imams, and maulvis—who have attained only the lowest rungs on the ladder of Islamic scholarship; other Muslims would say that clerics must meet higher standards to be considered ulema.


Ulema teach at Islamic religious schools called Medereses where they teach students about the science of Islam and other areas of study. It is believed in Islam that a well-rounded education is something every Muslim must acquire in order to understand God’s religion in its entirety. Ulema also hold seminars where they give lectures and speeches about the area of Islam in which they specialize.

Executive capacity

In contemporary times, the ulema are most powerful in the Shi'a tradition of Islam. Following the 1979 revolution in Iran, factions of the Iranian Shia clergy, under the leadership of Khomeini, took control of the country. This was justified by Khomeini's doctrine of "Guardianship of the Jurists" (Wilayat-i Faqih).

Afghanistan's Taliban regime was also headed by a mullah, Mullah Omar. However, in most countries, they are merely local power figures.

Military commanders

Ulemas not only have influence over social and religious spheres but they are also deeply involved in politics and have power over courses of action in such fields. In the Islamic State of Afghanistan and the Islamic Republic of Iran, mullahs have directly coordinated military operations. This is in keeping with Islamic traditions, as Muhammad and his successors were military commanders themselves.

Role in judicature
In certain Muslim countries, like Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates, where there are sharia courts, Islamic clergy become judges. Therefore, a main job of ulema is the interpretation and maintenance of Islamic law in such countries.

Advisory role
In some countries like Saudi Arabia, Islamic clergy fulfill the role of a counsel for the king. There are also jobs for them in various governmental institutions.

There are various jobs available for the Islamic clergy at mosques, such as leading public prayers, preaching, and delivering sermons, especially at Friday prayers. Some have made missionary activities a lifelong activity such as the Tablighi Jamaat group.

Role of the ulema in the ummah

The ulema in most nations consider themselves to represent the
ijma "consensus" of the Ummah "community of Muslims" (or to represent at least the scholarly or learned consensus). Many efforts to modernise Islam focus on the reintroduction of ijtihad and empowerment of the ummah to form their own ijma.

Ulema as authors

Many ulema have left behind them only a lifetime of mediating disputes and giving sermons; their respectable contributions did not include authorship. Other ulema have been prolific authors, writing translations of the
Qur'an or Quranic commentaries, studies of hadith, works of philosophy, religious admonition, etc. There are enormous bodies of religious literature that form not only the substance of the courses in Islamic seminaries, but inspirational reading for the ordinary Muslim. Most of this literature has not been translated into English, but remains in its original language (usually Arabic, Urdu, Persian, or Turkish). Some has been printed; some remains in manuscript form.

每個人都可能有某種飲食方面的陋習﹐吃喝的習慣不符合衛生﹐或者有礙健康﹐或者某種不良嗜好和習慣﹐譬如對某種不健康的飲食上了癮﹐成為那種飲食的奴隸。 當然﹐凡是發現有不良飲食習慣的人﹐都希望改正﹐不但為了省錢﹐更重要的是為了健康著想﹐也可以改善人際關係﹐讓別人不要討厭自己。
改正某種習慣﹐可不容易﹐縱然主觀上下了決心﹐也曾努力過﹐但成效甚小﹐反反覆覆。 有人說﹐戒煙很容易﹐一個人在一年之內有十次戒煙的經驗﹐每次都以失敗而告終﹐還是一個大煙筒。 改變陋習﹐確實須從個人主觀努力著手﹐如果借助於外來的環境和影響﹐成功率就高出數倍﹐很有可能一舉成功。 穆斯林在齋月裡的功修﹐就是一個最能見效的外助力﹐幫助我們實現改正陋習的規劃和理想。
飲食的陋習多種多樣﹐如飲酒﹑吸煙﹑吃零食﹑喝濃茶或咖啡﹐習慣性對攝入某種刺激性的飲食﹐對腸胃產生了定時反應﹐例如消化液中對接收那種嗜好飲食的期待﹐就是「癮」力發作的時候﹐機體很難熬。 守齋戒的人﹐決心很大﹐要求很嚴﹐從黎明前到日落時﹐滴水不沾﹐粒米不進﹐因為齋戒是發自內心裡對真主的敬畏和懼怕﹐必須忠誠老實。 那麼﹐這個精神力量就是克制機體難熬時的強大生力軍﹐使自己的意志堅強起來﹐戰勝艱難感受和身體的煎熬。
以吸煙為例﹐這是最常見的「上癮」﹐如果吸煙的習慣可以克服﹐那麼對其他陋習的糾正也應當有信心了。 醫療科學家確信﹐每天吸食一盒香煙的人﹐一年中在他的肺葉上積累了兩小杯的焦油。 煙葉的焦油中含有尼古丁﹐刺激肺葉渴望吸食更多的煙﹐壓低刺激性﹐就是「過癮」的效果。 如果連續三十天停止吸煙﹐肺葉上積存的尼古丁逐漸減少﹐刺激功能也相應會降低。 一個月的齋戒﹐在開頭的幾天﹐實在難熬﹐但到了一個月結束時﹐難熬的程度有明顯的降低﹐這說明﹐刺激性減弱了﹐而且精力旺盛。 這是關鍵時刻﹐只須再努一把力﹐不再復舊﹐徹底戒煙可以大告成功。
根據美國心理學會公佈的資料﹐戒煙如此﹐對於其他陋習也是同樣的原理﹐所以任何陋習都能解除﹐只須有堅強的毅力和決心。 齋月可以起到重大的輔助功能﹐走向健康飲食習慣的成功之路。 齋月裡白天長時間停止飲食﹐是腸胃的淨洗過程﹐有利於體內排毒﹐如尼古丁﹑咖啡因或酒精。 晚上開齋的時候一到﹐又飢又渴﹐穆斯林習慣齋月必備的清水和蜜棗﹐是空腹第一進食的最健康食品。 禮拜之後﹐開始正餐﹐大快朵頤﹐比平常多倍地感受到飲食的美味﹐這時對小小嗜好已位於第二﹐不很重要了。 足餐飽飲之後﹐想起來那些嗜好﹐如果再堅持一把﹐可以把癮頭壓制一下﹐做過泰勒威拜功﹐身體已經很累了﹐最大的需要是睡覺休息﹐不給嗜好魔蟲一點機會。
除了飲食和吸煙﹐現代人還患有一種新式嗜好 ---- 看電視。 根據國外家庭生活調查﹐一般的家庭每天看電視時間超過六個小時﹐心理學家把長時間看電視比作是自身虐待或摧殘行為﹐不但遠離了親朋好友﹐疏忽了工作和學習﹐而且引來各種現代「電視病」。
平常日子裡﹐下班回家﹐妻子在廚房裡忙碌﹐男子漢們無所事事﹐只有瞪著兩只眼睛看電視。 齋月裡﹐作息時間要做重大調整﹐看電視的時間應當主動減少﹐更加精選自己所喜好的少數節目﹐其他一切都免了﹐也可以讓上學的孩子多學習﹐早睡覺﹐全家安寧。 也有許多穆斯林家庭﹐齋月裡創造無電視月﹐切斷電源﹐關閉電視一個月﹐改變一下生活方式﹐告誡自己不要把電視變成癖習的頑症﹐成為電視奴隸。
假如沒有齋月﹐一年四季一個模式過日子﹐如同空中直達飛行﹐沒有停息﹑思考和調節的機會。 齋月向穆斯林提供了這樣一個機會﹐每年之中有一個月﹐回顧過去的一年﹐思考﹑檢討﹑反省﹑調整﹑懺悔﹐改正生活陋習﹐可以提高生活的品質﹑人性的道德﹑社會關係和信仰覺悟。
**** 目標明確﹐改正陋習﹐如吸煙﹑飲酒﹑喝濃咖啡或濃茶﹔
**** 吃健康食品﹐多喝清水﹐停止各種有添加劑的軟飲料﹔
**** 多吃水果和蔬菜﹐少吃肉﹑甜食和重油食品﹔
**** 開齋時吃蜜棗﹐喝清水﹐做完昏禮開始正餐﹔
**** 保證充足睡眠﹐控制電視節目﹔
**** 提高精神戰鬥力﹐鼓足勇氣克服癖好﹐改變陋習﹐加強社會友誼。

愛是一種感覺,一種天性,一種情感。伊斯蘭不責成人類的情感,因為 人的情感的本質不是人自主的,正如你對某事某物的喜怒哀樂,安拉不會加以責成。你不喜歡張三或喜歡李四或喜歡多一些或少一些,你不會因此而被責成,正如使者(願主福安之)對他的妻子所說:「主啊!我分配我所能控制的,不要責成我所不能控制的。」曾經有人對「歐曼爾」(願主喜悅之)說:「穆民的長官,我不喜歡你。」歐曼爾(願主喜悅之)問他:「那麼你會虐待我嗎?」他說:「不會。」歐曼爾(願主喜悅之)說:「你愛不愛我無關緊要。」

伊斯蘭不責成人們的情感,但卻責成形成後天的情感的因素。因此,伊斯蘭對於情感領域的範疇有兩個要求:① 當成為情感的主人,不要讓情感趨向於不符合伊斯蘭的範疇。比如當你看到一個漂亮的女孩,你可能會對她產生愛慕之情,伊斯蘭並不認為你的這種愛慕之情是一種犯罪,但當你故意單獨接近女孩,單獨約會……等,在伊斯蘭的視野裡就成了非法的。又如,你不喜歡張三,伊斯蘭不以之為罪,但當他向你問候(道色蘭)時,你因不喜歡他而不作答——這便是一種罪過。② 培養正確、美好的感情,遠距不好的習性。比如培養對真理、正義的追求和熱愛。又比如你不喜歡你的哥哥,你沒有必要顯形於色,你應該儘量避免這種感情,試圖培養喜歡他的情感。








對於個體而言,如果你是男性,你選擇一女子作為你的妻子,你當清楚她將是你孩子的母親,你家庭的監護人;如果你是女性,你選擇一男子作為丈夫,你當清楚他將是孩子的父親,你一生的 靠山。

誰都想選擇美貌、英俊、善良的物件,我們很難想像當你們結婚了,你的物件和其他異性還保持著千絲萬縷的聯繫,甚至背著作一些見不得人的事―――這是誰之過?這也許不得不讓我們重新審視所謂「浪漫」的愛情。讓我們來設想這樣一個鏡頭,當你洞房花燭夜,你是否有勇氣並真誠地拉著你妻子的手說:「你是我第一個觸摸的女性」 嗎?如果你是女性,你又是否有勇氣並真誠的對拉著你的手的男人說:「你是第一個觸摸的男人」 嗎?如果都有,再甜美的山盟海誓在這兩句簡單樸實的語言前面都顯得蒼白無力,那將是你們神聖婚約的一種什麼樣鎮靜劑啊!如果都沒有,那將又是一種什麼樣的結局呢?

Islam 伊斯蘭

What is Islam? 什麼是伊斯蘭?

Islam is not a new religion, but the same truth that Allah revealed through all His Prophets to every people. For a fifth of the world's population, Islam is both a religion and a complete way of life. Muslims follow a religion of peace, mercy, and forgiveness, and the majority have nothing to do with the extremely grave events, which have come to he associated with their faith.

伊斯蘭不僅只是宗教 ;一切的真理是從安拉透過眾使者傳達真理給全世界的人;占全球五分之一的穆斯林人口來說 伊斯蘭不僅只是一個宗教但是一個完整系統的生活 ;穆斯林遵循愛好合平 慈善 和尊重原諒的宗教 並和外界所說的黑暗與被壓迫的說法絕對是錯的

Who are the Muslims?

Over one billion people from a vast range of races, nationalities and cultures across the globe - from the southern Philippines to Nigeria - are united by their common Islamic faith. About 18% live in the Arab world; the world's largest Muslim community is Indonesia; substantial parts of Asia and most parts of Africa are Muslim, while significant minorities are to be found in Russia, China, North and South America, and Europe.

What do Muslims believe?

Muslims believe in One, Unique, Incomparable God; in the Angels created by Him; in the Proph­ets through whom His revelations were brought to mankind; in the Day of Judgement and the individual accountability for actions; in God's complete authority over human destiny and in life after death. Muslims believe in a chain of Prophets starting with Adam and including Noah, Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Job, Moses, Aaron, David, Solomon, Elias, Jonah, John and Jesus (peace be upon them all). But God's final message to man, a reconfirmation of the eternal message and a summing-up of all that has gone before, was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad, (peace be on him), through Archangel Gabriel.
How does someone become a Muslim?Simply by saying 'there is no deity apart from Allah, and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.' By this declaration the believer announces his or her faith in all messengers of Allah, and the scriptures they brought.

What does 'Islam' mean?

The Arabic word 'Islam' simply means 'submission,' and derives from a word meaning 'peace.' In a religious context it means complete submission to the will of Allah. 'Muhammadanism' is thus a misnomer, because it suggests that Muslims worship Muhammad rather than Allah. "Allah" is the Arabic name for God, which is used by Arab Muslims and Christians alike.
Why does Islam often seem strange?Islam may seem exotic or even extreme in the modern world. Perhaps this is because religion does not dominate everyday life in the West today, whereas Muslims have religion always uppermost in their minds, and make no division between the secular and the sacred. They believe that the Divine Law, the Shari'ah, should be taken very seriously, which is why issues related to religion are still so important.
Do Islam and Christianity have different origins?No. Together with Judaism, they go back to the Prophet and Patriarch Abraham (peace be on him), and their three Prophets are directly descended from his sons - Muhammad (peace be on him) from the eldest, Ishmael, and Moses and Jesus from Isaac. Abraham established the settlement, which today is the city of Makkah, and built the Ka'bah towards which all Muslims turn when they pray.

What is the Ka'bah?

The Ka'bah is the place of worship which Allah commanded Abraham and Ishmael to build over four thousand years ago. The building was constructed of stone on what many believe was the original site of the sanctuary established by Adam. God commanded Abraham to summon all mankind to visit this place, and when pilgrims go there today, they say 'At Thy service, O Lord,' in response to Abraham's call.

Who is Muhammad?

Muhammad (peace be on him) was born in Makkah Al-Mukarramah in the year 570, at a time when Christianity was not yet fully established in Europe. Since his father died before his birth, and his mother shortly afterwards, he was raised by his uncle from the respected tribe of Quraysh. As he grew up, he became known for his truthfulness, generosity and sincerity, so that he was sought after for his ability to arbitrate in disputes. The historians describe him as calm and meditative.

Muhammad (peace be. on him) was of a deeply religious nature, and had long detested the decadence of his society. It became his habit to meditate from time to time in the Cave of Hira near the summit of Jabal Al-Nur, the 'Mountain of Light' near Makkah.
How did he become a Prophet and a Messenger of God?At the age of 40, while engaged in meditative retreat, Muhammad (peace be on him) received his first revelation from Allah through the Angel Gabriel. This revelation, which continued for twenty three years, is known as the Qur'an.

As soon as he began to recite the words he heard from Gabriel, and to preach the truth which Allah had revealed to him, he and his small group of followers suffered bitter persecution, which grew so fierce that in the year 622, Allah gave them the command to emigrate. This event, the Hijrah, 'migration,' in which they left Makkah for the city of Madinah some 420 kilometres to the north, marks the beginning of the Muslim calendar.
After several years, the Prophet (peace be on him) died at the age of 63, and within a century of his death, Islam had spread to Spain in the West and as far East as China.
How did the spread of Islam affect the world?Among the reasons for the rapid and peaceful spread of Islam was the simplicity of its doctrine - Islam calls for faith in only One God worthy of worship. It also repeatedly instructs man to use his powers of intelligence and observation.
Within a few years, great civilizations and universities were flourishing, for according to the Prophet (peace be on him), 'Seeking knowledge is an obligation for every Muslim.' The synthesis of Eastern and Western ideas and of new thought with old, brought about great advances in medicine, mathematics, physics, astronomy, geography, architecture, art, literature, and history. Many crucial systems, such as algebra, the Arabic numerals, and also the concept of the zero (vital to the advancement of mathematics), were transmitted to medieval Europe from Islam. Sophisticated instruments, which were to make possible the European voyages of discovery, were developed, including the astrolabe, the quadrant and good navigational maps.

What is the Qur'an?

The Qur'an is a record of the exact words revealed by Allah through the Angel Gabriel to the Prophet Muhammad (peace be on him). It was memorized by Muhammad (peace be on him) and then dictated to his Companions, and written down by scribes, who cross­checked it during his lifetime. Not one word of its 114 chapters, Surahs, has been changed over the centuries, so that the Qur'an is in every detail the unique and miraculous text, which was revealed to Muhammad (peace be on him) fourteen centuries ago.
What is the Qur'aan about?The Qur'an, the last revealed Word of God, is the prime source of every Muslim's faith and practice. It deals with all the subjects which concern us as human beings: wisdom, doctrine, worship and law, but its basic theme is the relationship between God and His creatures. At the same time, it provides guidelines for a just society, proper human conduct and an equitable economic system.
Are there any other sacred sources?Yes, the Sunnah, the practice and example of the Prophet (peace be on him), is the second authority for Muslims. A Hadith is a reliably transmitted report of what the Prophet (peace be on him) said, did, or approved. Belief in the Sunnah is part of the Islamic faith.

Examples of the Prophet's sayings:

The Prophet (peace be on him) said:
'Allah has no mercy on one who has no mercy for others.'
'None of you truly believes until he wishes for his brother what he wishes for himself.'
'He who eats his fill while his neighbour goes without food, is not a believer.'
'The truthful and honest businessman will be in the company of the Prophets, the truthful people, and the martyrs on the Day of Judgement.'
'Powerful is not he who knocks the other down, indeed powerful is he who controls himself in a fit of anger.'
'Allah does not judge according to your bodies and appearances, but He scans your hearts and looks into your deeds.'
'A man walking along a path felt very thirsty. Reaching a well he descended into it, drinking his fill and came up. Then he saw a dog with its tongue hanging out, trying to lick up mud and quench its thirst. The man saw that the dog was feeling the same thirst as he had felt so he went down into the well again and filled his shoe with water and gave the dog a drink. Allah forgave his sins for this action.'
The Prophet (peace be on him) was asked: 'Messenger of Allah, are we rewarded for kindness towards animals?' He said: 'There is a reward for kindness to every living thing.'
