The Qur'ân is not man-made. It pertains the orders of Allâh. The Qur'ân we read now, is in a language that we understand. But the speech of Allâh is neither a letter, language, or sound. But what we read in the holy books, are expressions of the eternal speech of Allâh. Because Allâh does not resemble the creations in any way.
The AD-Ha `Id is one of the great days of the year on which the pilgrim fulfils the obligations of Hajj. It is also recommended for the pilgrim to offer a sacrifice on that day, with the intention to gain rewards from Allâh, the Exalted. This act is a regularly practised sunnah by the Prophet. Hence, the pilgrim and the non-pilgrim can practise this sunnah. This is evidenced in the ayah: فَصَلِّ لِرَبِّكَ وَانْحَرْ the meaning of which is: « Perform the `Id Prayer and offer a sacrifice seeking reward from Allâh. »
The second Caliph in this nation, Omar Ibn Al-Khattab may Allah’s blessings be upon him. He was man of noble attributes; he was a man of truth and dignity.
Allâh said in the Qur'ân which means: « Allâh is the One Who has sent down to the Prophet the Book that contains muHkamat ayat, which are the foundation of the Book, and other ayat which are mutashabihat. Those who have perversity in their hearts, they follow the mutashabihat ayat seeking discord and searching for unbefitting meanings based on their delusions. No one knows their true meanings except Allâh and those who are firmly rooted in the knowledge of the Religion. The latter say, “We believe in it, all of it is from our Lord and none will understand the message except men of comprehension”. » [sûrât ‘Âli `Imrân, ayah 7].
It is a duty to believe that God has predestined and created good and evil, but Allah rewards good and does not reward evil. He is the creator of the acts of slaves, of their wills and of their intentions whether they be good or evil. Allah orders good and forbids the evil.
Allah created the angels of light. All of them are Muslims obedient slaves to God. They are impalpable creatures, endowed with souls honored according to the judgment of God. They are neither men nor women. They are slaves responsible for their actions, responsible for many tasks.
al-Hafidh as-suyûTiyy said: « The news of the torture of the grave is narrated by at-tawatur from the Prophet, Salla l-Lâhu `alayhi wa sallam ». This means that a large number of companions narrated the Hadiths of the Prophet concerning the torture of the grave. `Abdu l-Qâhir Abu ManSûr at-tamimiyy said in his book al-Farqu Baynal-Firaq: « Sunnis are unanimous that the one who denies the torture of the grave will be tortured in his grave », that is, because of their disbelief.
God has predestined good and evil, but He accepts good and does not condone evil, He does what He wants, He is not questioned about what He does. He guides Who wants and misleads Who wants.
Imam Al-Bayhaqiyy related the Prophet MuHammad (Sallallahu `alayhi Wa Sallam) said: « حتى متى ترعونَ عن ذكر الفاجِر اذكروهُ بما فيه حتى يحذرهُ الناس » which means: « Until when will you hold back from exposing the one who commits enormous sins? Mention about him that which is in him so the people will be cautioned against him. » And Prophet MuHammad said: « إذا رأيت أمتي تهاب أن تقول للظالم يا ظالم فقد تودّع منهم » which means: « If you see my nation fearful of telling he who is unjust, "You are unjust" then know the support of Allah is withdrawn from them » [Related by Al Hâkim in Al Mustadrak]
When the Hajj season commences, the truthful righteous believers feel in their hearts the blessings of this season. Every year tens of thousands of Muslims prepare themselves for this Holy journey to Makkah and Madinah, the city of the Best Prophet, MuHammad Salla lLâhu `alayhi wa sallam.
Hajj is among the most important matters of Islam. Performing Hajj and `Umrah once in a lifetime is obligatory upon the Muslim who is free, accountable, and able. Performing them repeatedly after that time is considered sunnah. Hajj has a special merit that other acts of obedience do not have, in that it clears one of all sins, enormous and small.
Al-BayHaqiyy reported according to Ibnu `Abbas that he said: the prophet was born the year of the elephant. One must believe he was born in Makkah and sent as a Messenger therein; he immigrated to al-Madinah and was buried therein ; and he was truthful in everything he told about and conveyed from Allâh.
Many signs accompanied the honorable birth of the Prophet. Al-BayHaqiyy, Ibn `Asakir and others narrated from the route of Hani’ ِl-Makhzumi that he said, « On the night of the birth of the Messenger of Allâh, the palace of Kisra (the King of the Persians) shook and fourteen balconies fell from it. The fire of the Persians which had been burning continuously for one thousand years went out. The lake of Sa wah (in Persia) dried up. »
There was Angel Jibrîl peace be upon him, who hit the ground with his wing until fresh and pure water emerged. That became known as Zamzam water. The mother of Isma`îl gathered the water with her hands and collected it in her container while it was springing out. Jibrîl said: « Do not fear loss, for there is a sacred House here which will be built by this child and his father, » meaning Isma`îl and his father Ibrâhîm peace be upon them both. Hajar drank from Zamzam water quenching her thirst and breast-fed her son Ismâ`il. She thanked Allâh, the One who endows countless bounties upon His slaves.
`Ashura’ day lies on the 10th day of MuHarram. Fasting the day of `Ashura’ has been unanimously agreed upon by scholars of Islam to be a sunnah deed.
Allâh said in the Qur’ân, which means: « Allâh is the One Who has sent down to the Prophet the Book that contains muHkamat ayat, which are the foundation of the Book, and other ayat which are mutashabihat. Those who have perversity in their hearts, they follow the mutashabihat ayat seeking discord and searching for unbefitting meanings based on their delusions. No one knows their true meanings except Allâh and those who are firmly rooted in the knowledge of the Religion. The latter say, “We believe in it, all of it is from our Lord and none will understand the message except men of comprehension”. » [sûrât ‘Âli `Imrân, ayah 7]
It is a duty to know the thirteen attributes of Allah God which are: Existence (al-Wujud), Oneness (al-Wahdaniyyah), Eternity (al-Qidam), Everlastingness (al-Baqâ'), Non-neediness of others (al-Qiyamu bin-Nafs), Non-resemblance to the creatures (al-mukhâlafatu lil-Hawâdith), Power (al-Qudrah), Will (al-Iradah), Knowledge (al-`Ilm), Life (al-Hayah), Hearing (as-sam`), Sight (al-BaSar), and Speech (al-Kalam).
Allâh has the perfect names which are 99 in number. The Names of God are also called Attributes of God except the name Allâh we do not say attribute, we say Name. Allah is free from the attributes of creatures.
Allâh creates everything according to His Destining. And the Prophet said: « Belief is to believe in Allâh, His angels, His Books, His messengers, the Day of Judgment, and to believe in the qadar (destiny), both the good and the evil. »
The angels are all obedient Muslims to God. They are neither male nor female. They can take the appearance of men without organs. Iblis is not an angel.
