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.

Celebration of the Ascension

What do you think of an appointment with the President? How is it if you were the only candidate selected from billions to meet His Excellency? Of course you can’t help celebrating the day.

It is really a different case! The holy prophet is being invited by Almighty Allah, the Creator and Sustainer of Everything. Nobody ever got this opportunity in the past and nobody can expect it in the future; unique for the Beloved messenger. It was a great day for the holy Prophet (PBUH) and is so for all those who love him.

Moreover, it seems that the Almighty Allah wanted to give an entertainment to the prophet and to show His love and care. While he was shrouded with a cloud of tribulations, in the Sad Year, the holy prophet was taken to a world tour exploring all worlds leading to the extreme experience of seeing the Divine. Thus lovers of the prophet have every reason to be excited and to celebrate this event. To mark the occasion fasting also is recommended by some scholars. (. ويستحب صوم يوم المعراج http://islamport.com/d/2/shf/1/2/185.html)

Provocative!

The incident was a provocation for disbelievers and a solid proof for believers. Today, it provokes modern science on many terms and proves the authenticity of the Holy Prophet’s Message. The most significant aspect of this eventful journey is the “The Relativity of Time” as it took only a few seconds to complete its all episodes. The Holy Quran has made it clear that the time we count is different from the time elsewhere.

Another significant aspect of the journey is its speed and its connection with the Light. The special vehicle is called Buraq a term derived from the root Light. Traditional sources say that its Leap during the Night Journey (ISRAA) was so far as its eye could reach, which is a clear reference to the speed of light.  Thanks to the advancement of modern science, now we all know that the process of seeing is a light driven mechanism

According to Dr. Zaghloul El-Naggar, based on the root form of the word, even the name Miaraj (Ascension) is a reference to the bended path of light rays. The Quran mentions the traffic of the angels who are created from light with the same term. (تعرج الملئكة والروح فيها) see his article in Arabic here. http://www.eajaz.org/arabic/?option=com_content&view=article&id=663&catid=79:21

Thus the ascension of the Beloved messenger gave a boost to the faithful of that time. Similarly its celebration will boost up the faith and conviction of the believers of all times.

May Allah Increase our faith and join us with the faithful Aameen .

On Madeena Once Again

I would like to share yet another beautiful poetic expression on the city of the beloved Messenger.

لطيبة عرج إن بين قبابها
حبيب لأدواء القلوب طبيبُ
إذا لم تطب في طيبة عند طيبٍ
به طابت الدنيا فأين تطيبُ
إذا لم يجب في حيه ربنا الدعاء
ففي أي حي للدعاء يجيبُ
فيا ساكني أطراف طيبة كلكم
إلى القلب من أجل الحبيب حبيبُ
اللهم صل وسلم و بارك عليه وعلى اله واصحابه

Settle in Taybah for beneath its domes resides
The dearest, the healer of all sufferings of the minds.
If you weren’t pleased in the sweet city near the sweetie
By whom the world is pleasant, anywhere you could be?
At his neighbourhood, in case, calls are not answered,
Where does He answer the call, My Lord?
O’ the residents of Taybah, on each piece of its land,
You are dearly loved because of that Greatly Beloved.

Taybah, The Sweetest City on the Planet!

Ever since I returned from Madina Al Munawara two weeks ago , I’ve  tried to post on that sweet city. Despite plenty of pleasant memoirs and experiences, I feel really hard to express them! Madeena is a sensation and it triggers a great inflow of overwhelming emotions. What I can say simply now is that it is the sweetest of all the cities on the planet. I express my obligation to the great geniuses of the past who eternalized their evergreen expressions of prophetic love to be lip-synched by the less privileged lovers in the future.

Previously I have written in my post on Qaseedah Burdah of Imam Al Busiri: “Can we pen down a single line, worthier or dearer than those sacred lines, even if we spend all of our life span?? Never! O’ Imam Al Busiri!!, May Allah reward you with the best of rewards. May Allah join us with our Beloved Master. Ameen”

Here is one of the most famous songs on Madina recently presented by renowned Quran reciter and popular Kuwaiti Singer Mashary Al Afasy followed by Its lyrics and translation.

 

يـــا طيبـــــة O Tayba,
يا طيبة يا طيبة
يا دوا العيانا
اشتقنالك والهوى نادانا
والهوى نادانا
O Tayba, O Tayba,
O cure of the helpless
we missed you,
and the passion has called us
لما سار المركب نسانى
ساروا والدمع ما جفانى
أخذوا قلبى مع جنانى
يا طيبة ياتيم الولهانا
بااتيم الولهانا
As the ship departed, it forgot me
they sailed away and my tears never dried up
they took my heart and my soul with them
O Tayba, you’re love of the bewildered
you’re love of the bewildered
قبلتى بيت الله صابر
علنى يوما لك زائر
ياترى هل ترانى ناظر
للكعبة وتغمرنى بأمانا
تغمرنى بأمانا
My direction of prayer is the house of Allah,
I’m patient perhaps
a day will come to visit you
I wonder, Will I be looking upon Kaaba
and being overwhelmed with its safety..
نبينا أغلى أمنياتى
أزورك لو مرة بحياتى
وبجوارك صلى صلاتى
واذكر ربى واتلو القرآنا
واتلو القرآنا
Our prophet, the dearest of my ambitions
is to visit u,At least once in my life
and next to you, to perform my prayers
to praise my Lord, and to recite Qur’an
and to recite Qur’an
بشراك .. المدينة بشراك
بقدوم الهادي يا بشراك
فهل لى مأوى فى حماك
أتمنى .. فالنور سبانا
نوركم سبانا
O Madina, How lucky you are
for the coming of the Guiding Star
May I take a refuge in your shelter
I wish, the light has enchanted us
your light has enchanted us

Some extremists Like so called “Salafi” Mufti Obaid al Jabiri raised voice against this extremely popular song saying it is polytheistic to call O Tybah and to seek cure from it. In fact it is a reference for Love. Also they cannot digest the poet’s “dearest” ambition to visit the Prophet as well as  to pray and recite Quran beside His sacred tomb. All these stand against the so called Salafist ideology which is abandoned by the mainstream, the lion share of, Islamic scholars.

Terror turns up in Egypt , Pakistan Continues to suffer

Security forces in EGYPT have arrested two Salafis suspected of demolishing the shrines of revered Sufi figures in the Delta city of Qualiub. A group of Salafis on Wednesday demolished five shrines in the city, claiming that visiting shrines was an act of apostasy and against Islam. They also clashed with residents of the city who rushed to protect the shrines. The Islamic Research Academy on Thursday denounced the Salafis for demolishing the shrines and called the destruction a “criminal” act. http://www.almasryalyoum.com/en/node/381918
In Cairo, Abdel Hadi al-Qassabi, head of the Supreme Council for Sufi Orders, announced the fact-finding committee, while at the Hussein mosque hundreds of people surrounded the shrine inside, promising to lay their lives down to protect it.

Grand Mufti Ali Gomaa

Gomaa, meanwhile, praised a fatwa by the Islamic Research Complex which criminalized the destruction of shrines, saying such behavior destroys the unity of Muslims. http://www.almasryalyoum.com/en/node/383562

Youssef al-Qardavi too!!

The prominent Islamic scholar Youssef al-Qaradawi leveled severe criticism at Egypt’s Salafi movement, describing its thinking as both stagnant and extreme.
Al-Qaradawi added that the Salafi movement opposed the 25 January revolution and accused the revolutionary youth of deviating from Islam by disobeying authority. “Strangely enough, they now present themselves as the heroes of the revolution and its defenders,” he added. http://www.almasryalyoum.com/en/node/386155

Pakistan

In Pakistan Taliban continues to destroy Sufi shrines and slaughter innocent pilgrims with human bombs. They sanctify suicide, which is a deadly sin in Islam, as well as killings of hundreds and thousands of innocent civilians.
See BBC report:
Suicide attackers have killed at least 41 people and wounded many more at a shrine in Pakistan,  The explosions struck near the Sakhi Sarwar shrine in Punjab, as Sufi Muslim devotees gathered for an annual three-day festival. Sufis, a minority Muslim group who follow mystical beliefs, are regarded as heretical by hardliners. A Taliban fighter told reporters his group carried out the attack, the third on Sufi shrines in a year!!!!

Interestingly it continues:
“Sufism has been widely practised in Pakistan for hundreds of years – analysts saying it has a much bigger following than the hard-line Taliban version of Islam. Devotees perform singing and dancing and pray to saints (sic)who are honoured with numerous shrines. Their beliefs are considered un-Islamic by hardliners, who have targeted their shrines several times. Last October, a suicide bombing at a shrine in Punjab province left six people dead. And earlier in the year a suicide attack on a Lahore shrine killed at least 42 people, making it the most deadly such attack on record.    For decades, the government has also sought to suppress Sufism, and has put it under strict control.”

There were  blasts on a shrines one  in Punjab on 25/10/2010 and another in Lahore on 2/7/2010 as BBC reports.

Religion of Peace

It has been posted elsewhere in this blog on the terrorist version of Islam that stems from the deviated ideology of Wahabism. The term itself has been defined as an outfit promoting and practicing violent attack against all non-Wahabis, Muslim or non-Muslim.  The outfit unleashed, in its very beginning, bloody violent attacks on Traditional Muslims of Mecca and Medina and destroyed all historical and traditional structures in their Kingdom. Now No More is needed to be convinced of its terrorist nature with extreme deviation from the Religion Peace and the Messenger of Mercy.

May Allah Save us All !

A Mosque at Ground Zero?

Major two broadcasters in the US i.e. CBS and NBC refused to air the notorious hate ad which is based on zero ground against the so called ‘mosque at ground zero’!

Do we Muslims need a mosque at Ground Zero? I personally feel No, if the people out there are not comfortable with it. We can build mosque anywhere but without compromising the feelings of our neighbors! We need peace and tranquility for all. That is what this great religion is all about.

At the time of  Hudaibiyya treaty the Beloved Messenger set a sublime model for dealing with the people who are not aligned with our ideology. Almost every article of the pact prima facie went against Muslims and they had to suffer greatly to cope with. The prophet and His followers showed unmatched tolerance for the sake of Peace.

Islamic History portraits the Great Caliph Umar (May Allah Bless him) declining to perform his prayers inside the church despite his Christian counterpart’s insistence just because that public might take it wrongly and cost peace sometime in the future!

But what Muslims would like to erect there at ground zero is a suitable memorial in honor of 3000 innocent victims of 9/11 attack. 13 story building named as Cordoba House is said to be having public facilities for athletics, arts, performances, lectures series, forums and weddings, as well as a prayer space which makes opponents frown at! It is said that “The Islamic center is supported by most politicians in Manhattan and by religious leaders of many faiths. It has the support of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and state Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, now the state’s Democratic gubernatorial candidate”. See here what the Mayor has said on the issue. http://sify.com/news/new-york-mayor-defends-proposed-ground-zero-mosque-news-international-kf4u4ddaiic.html

With all its political and moral support, we need to maintain that it should not cause any irk to the people of the area and we hold high that No Compromise on Comprehensive Peace. Peace be upon You!

Water abuse in Ablution(Wudu)

Yesterday Gulf News Reported(Link Here) from Dubai the shocking details of water abuse in the Mosques. The Report Says: Hidden cameras placed at three Dubai mosques have revealed the extent to which water is wasted from fast-flowing taps in wudu or ablution areas…… in 1997, the UAE’s per capita water consumption was pegged at about 500 liters per person per day. In 2010, this figure has risen to 550 liters per person per day. At the mosque, Patel was often met with a shrug and a stare when he tried to explain to the men around him performing ablutions that it would be wise to turn off the tap when not in use”

I bowed myself shamefully reading the story to see how far the modern Muslims deviated from the teachings of the beloved Messenger. Tradition shows us what a little amount of water He spent to make ablution and bathing. He also strictly warned against any excess usage of water even if we use water from a flowing river. Many traditions narrate that he used only a handful of water for ablution. This report exposes us how careless we are in following our great Messenger and his companions. Our predecessors were so cautious and god-fearing while making ablution as they were in prayers. Traditional Scholars says that if you seek concentration and piety while praying you need to be so while making ablution!

Friends! Where we are from those our fellow-Muslims? We have lost our restraint. We can no more control our own actions and we depend on mad machinery to control ourselves!

But what is striking here is the clear prediction by the beloved Messenger that there will be people in the society who do excess in ablution and prayers!(Ahmad,ABu Dawud,Ibnu Majah(RA)

وعن عبد الله بن مغفل ، قال سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول :” إنه سيكون في هذه الأمة قوم يعتدون في الطهور والدعاء ”   رواه أحمد وأبو داود وابن ماجه بسند صحيح

O’ My Prophet, You have told the truth and we are the Witnesses. Peace and Blessing upon You , Your Family , Your Companions and upon us Your humbled subordinates.

Burdah (The Cloak): World’s Most Popular Single Poem

Poem of the CloakI personally feel overwhelmingly obliged to the Great Lover Imam Sharafudheen Muhammed Al Busiri for providing me his marvelous words in praising our Beloved Messenger (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). I can never pay off his charity of that single day when I was  reading those piercing lines of sublime love in the vicinity of the most sacred place in the universe, i.e. in front of our Master, the Messenger Of Allah(Peace and Blessings be upon Him). Can we pen down a single line, worthier or dearer than those sacred lines, even if we spend all of our life span?? Never! O’ Great Imam Al Busiri!!, May Allah reward you with the best of rewards. May Allah join us with our Beloved Master. Ameen

I would like here to quote  a famous western Islamic scholar Mr. Timothy J. Winter (Abdal Hakim Murad),Cambridge University, UK , as he says “what we are dealing with is very probably the most influential and the most popular single poem in the history of any language. There simply is no other text from ancient or recent times that has been done in so many languages, not just for some rarefied literary elite but for the people…”

It has been recited all over the Muslim world for centuries and get carved on mosques even in the Holy Mosque of the Prophet(Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) in Medina.
Here is an introduction for “The Burda” Sung by Fez Singers of Morocco and released  by Sandala Filims in the United States, with the translation of  noted American scholar Sheikh  Hamza Yusuf ; A documentary really   worthy to watch !

Another passage on the poem reads “Qasida Burdah as a poem has had a unique history. Even in the poet’s lifetime it was already regarded as sacred. Over 90 commentaries have been written on this poem by many of the foremost scholars and imams of Islam, including Ibn Hajar, Mulla Ali al-Qari, Ibn Allan, Bajuri, and others. It has been translated into Persian, Urdu, Turkish, Berber, Punjabi, English, French, German, Sindhi, Dutch and other languages. The poem is memorized and recited in congregations, and its verses decorate the walls of public buildings and mosques. From coasts of Senegal to the Philippines, from Russia to South Africa, everywhere Qasida Burdah is recited as a token of love for the Prophet and to ask for blessings.”

Mean while we see people who cannot enjoy the beauty of the poem dare labeling it UnIslamic. What a Pity! We can’t but feel sympathy and pray for them to recover from their hapless state.

Signs of the End Times – War and Terror

If you go through the Chapter of ‘Afflictions’ (الفتن)in the Sahih al Bukhari you would see astonishing prophecies that the beloved Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم had made on the contemporary world! Actually the beloved was speaking about the signs of the last day. Please see some of them here.

1. ‏قال النبي ‏ ‏صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ ‏إن بين يدي الساعة لأياما ينزل فيها الجهل ويرفع فيها العلم ويكثر فيها الهرج والهرج القتل

The Prophet said, “Near the establishment of the Hour there will be days during which (religious) knowledge will be taken away (vanish) and general ignorance will spread, and there will be Al-Harj in abundance, and Al-Harj means killing.”

2.‏‏عن النبي ‏ ‏صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ ‏قال ‏ ‏يتقارب الزمان وينقص العمل ويلقى ‏ ‏الشح ‏ ‏وتظهر الفتن ويكثر الهرج قالوا يا رسول الله ‏ ‏أيم هو قال القتل القتل

The Prophet said, “Time will pass rapidly, good deeds will decrease, miserliness will be thrown (in the hearts of the people) afflictions will appear and there will be much ‘Al-Harj.” They said, “O Allah’s Apostle! What is “Al-Harj?” He said, “Killing! Killing!”

What is really amazing is that the special word used by the messenger which was hitherto unknown to His companions, obviously to stress the graveness of the large scale killings occurring on those days. we can easily see the drastic increase in the casualties of wars and other atrocities in recent times. Due to the damned weapons of mass destruction that some countries possess in addition to the atrocities of the armed terrorist, the world is no longer a better place to live in. This very fact too is already mentioned by the holy prophet in another hadith in Sahih Bukhari !. The Prophet said:

(لا تقوم الساعة حتى يمر الرجل بقبر الرجل فيقول يا ليتني مكانه” (رواه البخاري).

The Hour will not be established till a man when passing by a grave of someone will say, ‘Would that I were in his place!”

Another major sign that the Beloved prophet mentions is the widespread ignorance of the Religion. Now we see the ignorance reached to a position where the same religion is used to kill innocent people and to destroy cities. Things the prophet has strictly warned about. Also We hear those people ordering to give up authentic scholarly schools and to follow ignorant pretenders who distinct themselves from the blessed tradition of Islamic scholarship.

May Allah Save us from all afflictions! Please say Aameen!

Beloved Prophet as a Loving Husband

Sayyida Aisha (RA) says:
I was cutting meat.
Trying hard to cut a piece of meat and I couldn’t.
The messenger of ALLAH came.
He grabbed one side and the other is in my hand.
He said: Cut Aisha…
He is supposed to cut,
But he wanted to prove for her that she is capable!
She could cut it easily and she was very happy!
***
She cooked that piece and gave it to the messenger.
She said: eat O’ messenger of ALLAH
He said: you eat; he said: You eat.
You’re the messenger of ALLAH, you’re my husband, you are my prophet.
He said: You eat!
He preferred her to himself.
Although he’s the lord of prophets and messengers,
Although he’s the husband, he said: You eat first…
She took a small bite from the meat and then gave it to him.
He took it happily, and ate from the same place that Sayyida Aisha ate from.
From the same place!
Messenger of ALLAH is tracking the place I ate from!
Sayyida Aisha was extremely rejoiced.
***
This is the messenger of ALLAH…This is our prophet.
May Allah grant him His Peace and Blessings
May Allah guide us to follow Him closely here in this world and in the other world as well. Aameen

Houses of the Beloved Prophet(PBUH) -Animation

I would like to share this video with you to see the simplicity of the abode of the Greatest Human Being . The Most Blessed Home on the Planet. May Allah bless us all with His Esteemed Company in the Next World, Ameen.

The Most Blessed Hair!

I Quote:


It is narrated by Bukhari in his Sahih in the Book of Clothes, under the chapter “What is mentioned about gray hair”, that Usman bin ‘Abdullah bin Mawhab (r) said, “my family sent me to Ummu Salamah (r) with a cup of water. And Ummu Salamah (r) brought out a silver bottle which contained one of the hairs of the Prophet (s), and it used to be that if anyone came under the evil eye or ill health they used to send her a cup of water through she would pass this hair [for drinking] and we used to look into the silver bottle: I saw some reddish hairs.”
Imam Hafiz ibn Hajar in Fath al-Baari, Volume 10, page 353, said, “they used to call the silver bottle in which the hair of the Prophet (s) was kept ‘jiljalan’ and that bottle was in the home of Ummu Salamah (r).”

Imam al-‘Ayni said, “Ummu Salamah (r) had some of the hairs of the Prophet (s) in a silver bottle, and when some people got ill, they used to go and obtain blessings from these hairs and they would be healed by means of its blessings. They used to take the hair of the Prophet (s) and they used to pass it through a cup of water and they would immediately be healed. And this explanation of the hadith is mentioned in Bukhari.”

It is said in ‘umdat il-Qari, a section in Sharh Sahih al-Bukhari, volume 18, page 79, “If a person were struck by the evil eye or by any sickness, he would send his wife to Ummu Salamah (r) with a mikhdabba [i.e. cup of water] and she used to pass the hair through that water and then he would drink the water and he would be healed, after which they would return the hair to the ‘jiljal.'”
Muslim narrated in his Sahih that Anas (r) related, “The Prophet (s) came to Mina and threw stones and then he came to his tent in Mina after he made the sacrifice, and he told the barber ‘take my hair’ and he pointed first to his right, then to his left. Then he began to distribute the hair to the Sahaba.”

According to Muslim, in the same hadith, according to another narration by Hafs (r), “the Prophet (s) when he shaved his right side, began to distribute either one hair or two hairs to every Sahabi, then he did the same with the hairs from the left side.”
In Musnad, Imam Ahmad said, transmitted by Anas (r), “when the Prophet (s) shaved his head in Mina, he gave me the hair of the right side and he said, ‘O Anas! take it to Ummu Salim.’ When the Sahaba saw what the Prophet (s) gave us, they began to compete to take the hair from the left side, and everyone was getting a share from that.”

Imam Ahmad in his Musnad said, “from Ibn Sireen from Ubaydah Salmani that he said, ‘O Allah! If only I would have a hair of the Prophet (s) which I could keep with me: that would be more precious to me than the white and the yellow and everything that is on the earth and what is inside it.'”

In ‘Umdat il-Qari, a section of Sharh Sahih al-Bukhari, “Khalid bin Waleed used to keep in his clothes some hairs of the Prophet (s) and for that reason he was always victorious.”

It is said in the same volume of the same book, “Khalid bin Waleed asked Abu Talhah to give him from the hair of the Prophet (s) when the Prophet (s) distributed his hair among the Sahaba. And he asked to give him from the front side of the head. And Abu Talhah gave him from the front side. And that is the reason he was always in the front.”

There are many other hadith on this subject, such that it is impossible to mention them all here. May Allah give us the blessing of the Prophet (s) his family and his Sahaba.
