The Disease Of The Idiots

In the name of Allah, the most Merciful, the most Beneficial

Living many years in Florida, I have to admit, I’ve become quite a bit desensitized to the fitnah that comes into my view. This is extremely unfortunately because, well, let’s face it, to look at the haraam is still haraam. Lowering one’s gaze is one of the hardest things to do while living in the West. I remember when I was living in Egypt, coming in contact with the opposite gender was something that was scarce. I would come in contact with the opposite gender at like restaurants when ordering food or something similar. However, in the West, avoiding contact with the opposite gender is nearly impossible. To help us get past this obstacle I thought I’d share the following quote by a South Asian scholar of the past:

Humour, Irony, Sarcasm & Outright Lies

In the name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Beneficial

Question:

It is not allowed in Islam to lie, even when joking. But does it also count as a lie if what the person is saying is simply sarcastic, and the other person knows that it is just mean to be that way. For example, if I am writing something down and someone looks at me and asks: “Are you writing?”, and I say: “No, I am playing football.” In these cases it is just sarcasm and it is too obvious that it is not true. Please help me out with this one, as so many of us indulge into such minor sarcastic jokes everyday.

Answer:

Evil Of Speaking Lies

In the name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the most Compationate

Abu Hurairah (Radhiyallaahu Anhu) narrates, in a hadith, that the Prophet (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, “The signs of a hypocrite are three; whenever he speaks, he tells a lie; whenever he promises, he breaks his promise; if you have trust in him, he proves to be dishonest.”

The above hadith of Nabi-e-Kareem(Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) is of such importance to us, his Ummah, because it demonstrates to us that how evil it is to speak lies, that Nabi-e-Kareem(S.A.W) associated the telling of lies with a hypocrite.

In another hadith narrated by Abu Hurairah(Radhiyallaahu Anhu), Nabi-e-Kareem (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said,

The Art Of Listening

The Art Of Listening
Sh. Abdul Fatah Abu Ghaddah

 

In the name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the most Beneficial
If a person starts telling you, whether in private or public, something that you already knew very well, you should pretend as if you do not know it. Do not rush to reveal your knowledge or to interfere with the speech.

Instead, show your attention and concentration. The honorable tab’i Imam Ata ibn Abi Rabah said: “A young man would tell me something that I may have heard before he was born. Nevertheless, I would listen to him as if I had never heard it before.”

Speaking To The Point Of Backbiting

Speaking To The Point Of Backbiting
A2Youth

We all know as Muslims we shouldn’t backbite yet sometimes we forget and other times we don’t know we are actually backbiting.

In the Qur’an Allah (Subhaanahu wa Ta’aala) says “O you who believe! avoid most of suspicion, for surely suspicion in some cases is a sin, and do not spy nor let some of you backbite others. Does one of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? But you abhor it; and be careful of (your duty to) Allah, surely Allah is Oft-returning (to mercy), Merciful.” [Al-Hujaraat: 12]

Also this authentic hadith (below) teaches us some more about backbiting and how easy it is to do it.

The Prophet (Salla Allahu ‘Alayhee wa Sallam) was looking into marrying Safiyyah (Radhi Allahu ‘Anhum). Aisha (Radhi Allahu ‘Anhum) saw her yet out of natural jealousy really didn’t want the Prophet to marry her. So the Prophet asked Aisha about her and Aisha said she was nice and everything was good about her, but then Aisha made a gesture with her hand to show that Safiyyah was short. In response to this the Prophet said just this gesture; if she were to put it into an ocean it would stain the whole ocean. [Sunan Abu Dawud, 41:4857]

Who Can Be More Astray Than One Who Follows His Own Desires?

 

In the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Most Merciful
Hearts are like vessels, they all need to be filled. What they should be filled with is the belief in Allah and obedience to Him, as is highlighted by the following hadith:

“Trials will be presented to men’s hearts as a reed mat woven stick by stick , and any heart which is impregnated by them will have a black mark put on it. But any heart which rejects them will have a w white mark put in it. The result is that the hearts will be of two kinds: one white, like a white stone which will not be harmed by trials as long as the heavens and the earth endure, and the other black and rusty like a vessel which is upset, not recognising the good, nor rejecting the evil, but rather being impregnated with its desire”. (Hudayfah (r), Ahmad and at-Tirmidhi).
