The First Sermon of the Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam)

The First Sermon of the Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) The Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) started the speech by praising Allaah and thanking Him then said: "Verily, Ar-Raid (one whom his people send to search for water and grass) does not lie to his people. By Allaah! Even if I lied to all people, I would never lie to you, and if I deceived all people, I would never deceive you. By Allaah, other than Whom there is no deity worthy of worship, I am Allaah’s Messenger (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) to you in particular and to all people in general. By Allaah! You will die just as easy as you sleep, and you will be resurrected Read more ...

Purify your intention for the sake of Allah

I contemplated the way some people, some of whom I have lived with for years, deal with others,. I do not ever recall them laughing, or even smiling at a joke out of courtesy, or reacting positively to the person speaking to them. I used to think that perhaps this was how they were nurtured and that they were unable to alter their nature. I was therefore stunned one day to see some of them with a group of rich and powerful people, laughing and being courteous. I then realised that they only did this for their own personal interests and are thereby losing out on great rewards from Allah. A believer worships Allah by being well-mannered and dealing pleasantly Read more ...

Obama’s Speech, Abu Mazen’s Gamble

Source : Palestine Chronicle - By Uri Avnery | 09/23/2011 A wonderful speech. A beautiful speech.The language expressive and elegant. The arguments clear and convincing. The delivery flawless. A work of art. The art of hypocrisy. Almost every statement in the passage concerning the Israeli-Palestinian issue was a lie. A blatant lie: the speaker knew it was a lie, and so did the audience. It was Obama at his best, Obama at his worst. Being a moral person, he must have felt the urge to vomit. Being a pragmatic person, he knew that he had to do it, if he wanted to be re-elected. In essence, he sold the fundamental national interests Read more ...

The Noble Quran is the speech of Allah

One year, when Al-Asma'i was on his way to perform hajj, a bedouin carrying a large sword and a long spear confronted him. It was quite obvious that he was a highway robber. He came near Al-Asma'i and instead of fleeing or attempting to escape, Al-Asma'i drew nearer to him. He extended greetings of peace to the robber. The latter responded and then asked, "Where are you from?" "I am a poor man on a journey," was Al-Asma'i's reply. "Do you have anything with you?" asked the robber. "Yes, I have with me the Quran," answered Al-Asma'i. "And what is the Quran?" asked the robber. "It is the speech of Allah 'Azza wa Jall," said Al-Asma'i. "And does Allah Read more ...

Ramadan : Controlling the Tongue

Controlling the tongue is a characteristic that is required to be adopted, especially relevant in Ramadan, as one of the objectives of the fast is to control the tongue. Ibrahim al-Nakha’i, on of the teachers of Imam Abu Hanifa, may Allah have mercy on them both, mentioned: “The people ruined before you were done in by three characteristics: too much talking, too much eating, and too much sleeping.” Al-humdolillah, the Fast of Ramadan, when properly engaged in, cuts down on all three of these ruinations. "Silence is to refrain from speaking falsely; not truthfully." Silence differs from not speaking in three ways: Not speaking is to leave off speech Read more ...

Conciseness in Speech

Speaking is an art, as is writing. The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) has been described as possessing "eloquent conciseness" in speech. He would say a few words, but those words would carry an immense wealth of meaning. His wife, `A'ishah, confirmed this. She said: "He did not have to speak at length like all of you do." The more condensed an expression is, the more meaning each word must carry. A maxim, for example, is a wise statement with no superfluity, no unnecessary words. The impetus for abridgement is often scarcity of time. The mind and tongue are compelled, to conserve time, to encapsulate the broadest concepts and most complex ideas Read more ...
