The saviour

Every one of us has passed through a painful experience..one,two or more…

Do not search for someone else to treat your pain and relieve it.

Your inner talk to your self is your only saviour.

Yes

Pain is like a wild tiger that attacks us with no mercy.

But how pain attacks us?

Pain attacks us when we remember the painful experiences of the past.

When the dark thoughts attack you, quickly kick them out of your brain and begin to talk to your self positively.

Say to your self ( never mind..I trust God..I am sure tomorrow will be better).

Stop thinking in a passive way..

Forget about the past..

Forget about todays problems..

Accept your fate completely..

Your inner soliloquy is your only saviour of your pain.

Your trust in your creator is your only way out..

Think positively…

Open a new page with your self…

Life is good..but we who can make it good or bad.

Peace☺

Personal Hygiene (Part 1).

Taking care of the cleanliness of the body is a priority in Islam.

Every part of a moslem’s body should be taken care of, especially the teeth…

Moslems pray five times a day.

Every time you pray, you should be sure that your body is clean, your smell and your teeth.

Let’s see what prophet Mohammad said..
Allah’s Messenger said “Had I not feared burdening my Ummah ( nation) , I would have commanded them to use Siwak before every Salat(prayer)” [Reported by Malik, Ahmad and An-Nasai.

Siwak is something like a tooth brush..but when you use it, you don’t need a toothpaste, it is a plant like a small stick, a muslim uses to clean his teeth. Siwak makes the smell of the mouth nice and protects from many diseases.lt protects the stomach and helps in the digestion of your food.

I will show you some images of siwak.

Peace be with you 🌷

Night of power🌛

This night is so special for moslems all over the world..

Let’s learn about it…

Laylat al-Qadr

(from Arabic: لیلة القدر‎), variously rendered in English as the Night of Decree,[2]Night of Power,[3] Night of Value, Night of Destiny,[4] or Night of Measures, is an Islamic belief the night when the first verses of the Quran were revealed to the Islamic prophetMuhammad.[5] It is one of the nights of the last ten days of Ramadan. Muslims believe that on this night the blessings and mercy of God are abundant, sins are forgiven, supplications are accepted, and that the annual decree is revealed to the angelswho also descend to earth, specially the Angel Gabriel, referred to as “the Spirit”, to perform every and any errand decreed by God. Islam holds that God Almighty alone answers our supplications and that He alone receives them and forgives humanity and gives them what they ask for and that on this particular night Muslims should actively seek God’s forgiveness and engage in various acts of worship.

Revelation to Prophet Muhammad
Some commentators believe that the Quran was revealed to Muhammad twice; the ‘immediate revelation’ happening on the Laylat al-Qadr and ‘gradual revelation’ across 23 years. The Quran uses the word Inzal (انزال) which justifies ‘the immediate revelation’, according to Allamah Tabatabai.[6]However some others believe that the revelation of Quran occurred in two phases, with the first phase being the revelation in its entirety on Laylat al-Qadr to the angel Gabriel (Jibril in Arabic) in the lowest heaven, and then the subsequent verse-by-verse revelation to Muhammad by Gabriel.[4] The revelation started in 610 CE at the Hira cave on Mount Nur in Mecca. The first Surah that was revealed was Sūrat al-ʿAlaq (in Arabic العلق).[citation needed] During the first revelation the first five verses of this Surah, or chapter, were revealed.[7]
Date
The specific date of Laylat al-Qadr is not mentioned in the Quran.[8][9]
Sunni Islam
In Islamic countries and Sunnicommunities all over the world, Laylat al-Qadr is found to be on the last ten nights of Ramadan, mostly in on one of the odd nights (21st, 23rd, 25th, 27th or 29th) whereby night precedes day. Many traditions insist particularly on the night before the 27th of Ramadan.[10][11][12]

Religious importance
The night is not comparable to any others in view of Muslims[14] and according to a tradition, the blessings due to the acts of worship during this night can’t be equaled even by worshipping throughout an entire lifetime. The reward of acts of worship done in this one single night is more than the reward of around 83 years (1000 months) of worship.[5] Laylat al-Qadr is referenced in the Quran:[4][14]
  1. We have indeed revealed this (Message) in the Night of Power:
  2. And what will explain to thee what the Night of Power is?
  3. The Night of Power is better than a thousand months.
  4. Therein come down the angels and the Spirit by Allah’s permission, on every errand:
  5. Peace!… This until the rise of dawn!
    — Surah 97 (Al-Qadr), āyāt 1–5[22]
The verses above regard the night as better than one thousand months.[14] The whole month of Ramadan is a period of spiritual training wherein believers devote much of their time to fasting, praying, reciting the Quran, engaging in the remembrance of God(dhikr) and giving charity.[citation needed] However, because of the revealed importance of this night, Muslims strive [give more effort] harder in the last ten days of Ramadan since the Laylat al-Qadr could be one of the odd-numbered days in these last ten (the first, third, fifth, seventh or ninth). Normally, some Muslims from each community perform iʿtikāf in the mosque: they remain in the mosque for the last ten days of the month for prayers and recitation.[4]Women also observe i’tikaf. They remain in prayer and meditation mostly, although they are allowed to do the minimum domestic work to run the family. When Muhammed observed i’tikaf in a tent, he saw a few tents around his. His wives joined him by pitching tents.[citation needed]

Love or sex???

We live in the age of freedom☺

How silly?

Which freedom are you talking about??

When you talk about religion..they shut your mouth and say stop talking…

When you say Obey God rules…they say shut your mouth and do not speak..

They say live and let live..do not prevent people from loving each other…they say everyone has the freedom to love the person who is suitable for him or her…

Okay…I agree with you..love the person who you feel love for him/her…but do not do sex with aperson who is your same sex..

We should obey God’s rules because God wants the Good for us…

Homosexuality causes harmful diseases for people like Aids disease and this is a simple proof that God’s orders are right and a proof that he wants the Good for us…

A man lost his father when he was just three years old…

When he grew up he felt love for an old man..his neighbour…all he wanted was a hug from that old man and to touch him like a son…but unfortunately the old man exploited him and do sex with him…this is a simple example..

When you feel love for any body…love and do not prevent love…but do not make sex with a person of your same sex…it is harmful to humanity and forbidden in all religions…just obey God Allah…and your life will be great…

Allah says…

وَلُوطًا إِذْ قَالَ لِقَوْمِهِ أَتَأْتُونَ الْفَاحِشَةَ مَا سَبَقَكُمْ بِهَا مِنْ أَحَدٍ مِنَ الْعَالَمِينَ
We also (sent) Lut: He said to his people: “Do ye commit lewdness such as no people in creation (ever) committed before you?

إِنَّكُمْ لَتَأْتُونَ الرِّجَالَ شَهْوَةً مِنْ دُونِ النِّسَاءِ ۚ بَلْ أَنْتُمْ قَوْمٌ مُسْرِفُونَ
“For ye practise your lusts on men in preference to women : ye are indeed a people transgressing beyond bounds.”

وَمَا كَانَ جَوَابَ قَوْمِهِ إِلَّا أَنْ قَالُوا أَخْرِجُوهُمْ مِنْ قَرْيَتِكُمْ ۖ إِنَّهُمْ أُنَاسٌ يَتَطَهَّرُونَ
And his people gave no answer but this: they said, “Drive them out of your city: these are indeed men who want to be clean and pure!”

فَأَنْجَيْنَاهُ وَأَهْلَهُ إِلَّا امْرَأَتَهُ كَانَتْ مِنَ الْغَابِرِينَ
But we saved him and his family, except his wife: she was of those who legged behind.

وَأَمْطَرْنَا عَلَيْهِمْ مَطَرًا ۖ فَانْظُرْ كَيْفَ كَانَ عَاقِبَةُ الْمُجْرِمِينَ
And we rained down on them a shower (of brimstone): Then see what was the end of those who indulged in sin and crime!

Peace 💐

Rules of funerals in Islam..


Funerals

in Islam (called جنازة Janazah in Arabic) follow fairly specific rites, though they are subject to regional interpretation and variation in custom. In all cases, however, sharia (Islamic religious law) calls for burial of the body as soon as possible, preceded by a simple ritualinvolving bathing and shrouding the body,[1] followed by salah (prayer). Burial is usually within 24 hours of death to protect the living from any sanitary issues, except in the case of a person killed in battle or when foul play is suspected; in those cases it is important to determine the cause of death before burial. Cremation of the body is strictly forbidden in Islam.[2][3]

Burial rituals should normally take place as soon as possible and include:[4]
  • Collective bathing of the dead body,[5]except in extraordinary circumstances as in battle of Uhud.[6]
  • Enshrouding dead body in a white cotton or linen cloth.[7]
  • Funeral prayer ( صلاة الجنازة ).[8]
  • Burial of the dead body in a grave.
  • Positioning the deceased so that the head is faced towards Mecca (Makkah Al-Mukarramah).
Bathing the body
The corpse is washed (ghusl, bathed), with the purpose to physically cleanse the deceased. The exact manner: the method, style and accessories used for bathing the corpse may vary by locale and temporal position, except that it is to be done with heated water. Bathing the dead body is an essential ritual of the Sunnah of the Islamic prophetMuhammad,[9] and therefore a part of the Islamic Sharia. This should occur as soon as possible after death, preferably within hours.
Orthodox practice is to wash the body an odd number of times (at least once) with a cloth covering its awrah (parts of the body that should be hidden according to Sharia).[10]
The “washers” are commonly adult members of the immediate family, who are of the same gender as the deceased. In cases of violent deaths or accidents, where the deceased has suffered traumaor mutilation, morgue facilities mend the body and wrap it in a shroud to minimise fluid leakage prior to surrendering it to mourners for washing.
Shrouding
The corpse is typically wrapped in a simple plain cloth (the kafan). This is done to respect the dignity and privacy of the deceased with the family sometimes present. The specifics of this ritual, including the material, style, and colour of the cloth, may vary between regions. However, the shroud should be simple and modest. It is for this reason that Muslims have generally preferred to use white cotton cloth to serve as the shroud. Men may use only three pieces of cloth and women five pieces of cloth.[11]
The body may be kept in this state for several hours, allowing well-wishers to pass on their respects and condolences.
Funeral prayer
The Muslims of the community gather to offer their collective prayers for the forgiveness of the dead. This prayer has been generally termed as the Salat al-Janazah (Janazah prayer).
The Janazah prayer is as follows:
  • like Eid prayer, the Janazah prayer incorporates an additional (four[12]) Takbirs, the Arabic name for the phrase Allahu Akbar, but there is no Ruku’(bowing) and Sujud (prostrating).
  • Supplication for the deceased and mankind is recited.
  • In extraordinary circumstances, the prayer can be postponed and prayed at a later time as was done in the Battle of Uhud.[8]
  • It is required for every Muslim adult male to perform the funeral prayer upon the death of any Muslim, but conventionally and in practice the Janazah is performed by few people so it alleviates that obligation for all.[13]
The body is then taken for burial (al-Dafin). The exact manner, customs and style of the grave, the burial and so forth may vary by regional custom.
The grave should be perpendicular to the direction of the Qibla (i.e. Mecca) so that the body, placed in the grave without a coffin lying on its right side, faces the Qibla.[14] Grave markers should be raised, not more than about 30 centimetres (12 in) above the ground, so that the grave will neither be walked nor sat on. Grave markers are simple, because outwardly lavish displays are discouraged in Islam. Graves are frequently marked only with a simple wreath, if at all. However, it is becoming more common for family members to erect grave monuments.
In Middle Eastern Muslim cultures, women are generally discouraged from participating in the funeral procession. The reason for this is that in pre-Islamic Arabia it was customary in Arabia for grieving women to wail loudly. Wealthy families often even hired moirologists to attend the funerals of their deceased relative. Wailing at funerals is not permitted according to the Sahih Bukhari. Women are allowed to attend or be present if they do not wail or cry or hit themselves in grief, especially in an exaggerated excessive manner as in pre-Islamic Arabia.[15]
Three fist-sized spheres of hand-packed soil prepared beforehand by the gravediggers are used as props, one under the head, one under the chin and one under the shoulder. The lowering of the corpse and positioning of the soil-balls is done by the next of kin. In the case of a deceased husband, a male brother or brother-in-law usually performs this task. In the case of a deceased wife, the husband undertakes this if physically able to. If the husband is elderly, then the eldest son (or son-in-law) is responsible for lowering, alignment and propping the deceased.
Orthodoxy expects those present to symbolically pour three handfuls of soil into the grave while reciting a quranic verse meaning, “We created you from it, and return you into it, and from it we will raise you a second time”.[16] More prayers are then said, asking for forgiveness of the deceased, and reminding the dead of their profession of faith.

The corpse is then fully buried by the gravediggers, who may stamp or pat down the grave to shape. Commonly the eldest male will supervise. After the burial the Muslims who have gathered to pay their respects to the dead collectively pray for the forgiveness of the dead. This collective prayer is the last formal collective prayer for the dead. In some cultures, e.g. in South-East Asian, the relatives scatter flowers and perfumed rose water upon the grave before leaving the grave.
Mourning
According to Sunni Islam, loved ones and relatives are to observe a 3-day mourning period.[17] Islamic mourning is observed by increased devotion, receiving visitors and condolences, and avoiding decorative clothing and jewelry in accordance with the Qur’an.[18]Widowsobserve an extended mourning period (iddah, period of waiting), 4 months and 10 days long.[19] During that time, the widow is not to remarry or to interact with non-mahram (a man she can marry). This rule is to confirm that the woman is not pregnant with the deceased’s child prior to remarrying. However, in case of emergencies such as visiting a doctor because of a health emergency, the widow can interact with non-mahram.
Grief at the death of a beloved person and weeping for the dead is normal and acceptable.[20]
Sunni Islam expects expression of grief to remain dignified, prohibiting loud wailing (bewailing refers to mourning in a loud voice), shrieking, beating the chest and cheeks, tearing hair or clothes, breaking objects, scratching faces or speaking phrases that make a Muslim lose faith. Grieving is allowed and a part of the death and burial process to allow one to come in terms with the loss of a person passing away as long as it respects the above.[21]
Directives for widows
The Qur’an prohibits widows to engage themselves for four lunar months and ten days, after the death of their husbands. According to the Qur’an:
And those of you who die and leave widows behind, they should keep themselves in waiting for four months and ten days. Then when they have fulfilled their term, there is no blame on you about what they do with themselves in accordance with the norms [of society]. And Allah is well acquainted with what you do. And there is also no blame on you if you tacitly send a marriage proposal to these women or hold it in your hearts. Allah knows that you would definitely talk to them. [Do so] but do not make a secret contract. Of course you can say something in accordance with the norms [of the society]. And do not decide to marry until the law reaches its term. And know that Allah has knowledge of what is in your hearts; so be fearful of Him and know that Allah is Most forgiving and Most Forbearing.
Islamic scholars consider this directive a balance between the mourning of a husband’s death and the protection of a widow from cultural or societal censure if she became interested in remarrying after her husband’s death, often an economic necessity.[22] This provision also operates to protect the property rights of the unborn, as the duration is enough to ascertain whether a widow is pregnant or not.[23]
Husbands are recommended to make a will in favor of their wives for the provision of one year’s residence and maintenance, except if the wives themselves leave the house or take any other similar step. As stated in Qur’an:
And those of you who die and leave widows should bequeath for their widows a year’s provision and [bequeath] that [in this period] they shall not be turned out of their residences; but if they themselves leave the residence, there is no blame on you for what they do with themselves according to the norms of society. And Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise.
