Al Jazeera Documentary on Blessed Relics

Beloved prophet (PBUH) has left for his lovers not only his everlasting teachings but also physical belongings including a piece of tooth and many strands of his blessed hair. These things are of a great importance for his lovers as a living strand of dynamic connection to their Prophet through the ages.

Al Jazeera Network on their Documentary channel broadcasted a film in Arabic about the blessed relics of the holy Prophet (PBUH). The film was produced by Mr. Majdi Imam with commentary of reputed Scholar and the Grand Mufti of Egypt, Dr. Ali Gomaa.

Here is an extract from the film followed by its Arabic text and English translation.

اما الشعرات الشريفة فهي كثيرة جدا منتشرة حتى ايامنا هذه في كثير من بلدان العالم الاسلامي وسبب كثرتها حلاقة النبي صلى الله عليه و اله و سلم لشعرراسه الشريف يوم حجة الوداع وامره لابي طلحة رضي الله عنه ان يوزع شعر الجانب الايسر من راسه الشريف بين الناس وقد فعل والمحفوظ في تركيا شيء من شعر لحيته الشريفه صلى الله عليه وسلم وضعت داخل قارورة زجاجية مملوئة بشمع العسل مغلقة من طرفين

…………………..
لان يكون عندي منه صلى الله عليه وسلم شعرة احب الى من كل شيئ على ظهر الارض هذا هو معيار كمال الحب

Translation :

There are too many blessed hairs even today widely spread in many countries of the Islāmic world. The reason for this large quantity is the prophet’s (PBUH) shaving on his Farewell Hajj and his order to Abu Talha (R) to distribute the hairs from the left side of his head among people and he has done it. In Turkey some hairs of the Prophet’s (PBUH) blessed beard is kept in a glass vial filled with beeswax closed from both sides.
…………………..
To have a strand of His hair in my possession is dearer to me than everything on earth’ this is the criterion of the Perfect Love.

Traditional Islamic School Fights Terrorism

Islam is based on its rich tradition. For centuries, the mainstream Islamic community has upheld the classic values of the religion and handed over to the next generation. Unfortunately there were forces of deviation through the history trying to sabotage the true Islamic principles. But it is really the divine protection that kept this religion intact. It is obvious that the radical fanatics of modern times has nothing to do with the true Islam and its mainstream population. It is only a handful of urchins whose entire ideology is to reject the blessed tradition of Islam which is widely called Wahhabi Ideology. A lot of online and offline materials are out there to be studied on the subject. The Book “Who Speaks for Islam? What a Billion Muslims Really Think ” has some interesting facts based on a survey conducted in 35 nations that are predominantly Muslim or have significant Muslim populations.
However, Wahhabi leaders of the day started denouncing terrorism upon political pressure since their fatwas and religious discourses as well as their bloody history has already proved otherwise.
