Virtues of Friday

Praise be to Allaah.

Friday has many distinguishing features and virtues that Allaah has bestowed upon this day and not others.

It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah and Hudhayfah (may Allaah be pleased with them) said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Allaah led those who came before us away from Friday. The Jews had Saturday, and the Christians had Sunday. Then Allaah brought us and Allaah guided us to Friday. So there is Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and thus they will follow us on the Day of Resurrection. We are the last of the people of this world but we will be the first on the Day of Resurrection, and we will be dealt with before all others.”
Narrated by Muslim, 856.

1. Why the Devil is called Shaytan ?

In the Arabic language, Shaytan is derived from Shatana, which means the far thing. Hence, the Shaytan has a different nature than mankind, and his sinful ways are far away from every type of righteousness. It was also said that Shaytan is derived from Shata, (literally `burned’), because it was created from fire. Some scholars said that both meanings are correct, although they state that the first meaning is more plausible. Further, Siybawayh (the renowned Arab linguistic) said, “The Arabs say, `So-and-so has Tashaytan,’ when he commits the act of the devils. If Shaytan was derived from Shata, they would have said, Tashayyata (rather than Tashaytan).” Hence, Shaytan is derived from the word that means, far away. This is why they call those who are rebellious (or mischievous) from among the Jinns and mankind a `Shaytan’.

The Prophet’s Manner of Performing Prayers
Shaykh ‘Abdul-‘Aziz bin Baaz rahimahullaah

All praise be to Allaah alone, and may His peace and blessings be upon His messenger and bondsman our Prophet Mohammed, his family and his companions.

The objective of this concise pamphlet is to explain how prophet Mohammed (Peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to perform his prayers. I would like to present this explanation to every male and female Muslim so that they may strive to take up the Prophet’s manner in performing their prayers as a model for them. It was narrated by Al-Bukhari that Prophet Mohammed (Peace and blessings of Allaah be on him) had said: “Perform your prayers in the same manner you had seen me doing.”

Therefore, here is the explanation for the Prophet’s manner of prayer:

People have evidence of the existence of God, and the wisdom behind His creation

Question:

A non muslim friend of mine asked how i will prove existence of god and why has he given us life,and with what purpose. my answer did not satisfy him ,plese tell me what i should tell him?

Answer:

Praise be to Allaah.

My dear Muslim brother, your efforts to call people to Allaah and explain the reality of Allaah’s existence make us very happy. Finding out about Allaah is in tune with the sound fitrah (natural inclinations of man) and with sound reasoning.

Al-Fatihah: The Three Levels of Guidance

Al-Fatihah: The Three Levels of Guidance
Ibn Qayyim al Jawziyyah

In the name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Beneficial
Reciting Suratul-Faatihah as we all know, is an essential part of our daily prayers. It was narrated by Ubada bin As-Samit that Allah’s Messenger (salla llaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said, “Whoever does not recite Surat Al-Fatiha in his prayer, his prayer is invalid”. This motivates every Muslim to understand the deep meanings behind the words of this Soorah. Consequently, this helps us in keeping Khushoo’ while standing in front of Allaah in our prayers.
