What is Islam? (The Hadith of Angel Gabriel)

on the authority of ‘Umar, radiyallahu ‘anhu, who said: “While we were one day sitting with the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam, there appeared before us a man dressed in extremely white clothes and with very black hair. No…

Hadith Meaning: “The Prophet, may Allah praise him, said: ‘O Ka’b, may Allah protect you such that you do not witness the period of unworthy rulers.’ Ka’b asked…what is this period? The Prophet said: ‘This is a period of rule wherein those who rule will not follow my guidance, and will follow other than my Sunnah…whoever believes their lies and helps them further their oppression are not from me, and I am not from them; they shall not drink from my Hawdh (pool) on the Day of Resurrection. Whoever disbelieves them (i.e. the unworthy rulers), and does not help them spread their oppression, they are from me and I am from them, and they shall drink from my Hawd on the Day of Resurrection. O Ka’b fasting is a protective shield (that shields you from the torment of the afterlife), and charity puts out the flames of sin and prayers shall draw your closer to Allah. O Ka’b everyone of us shall leave this Dunya…a person may either leave this world freeing himself from Hell or shackling himself to it.” (Sahih at-Targhib) May Allah protect us from this evil…Ameen!

عَنْ كَعْبِ بْنِ عُجْرَةَ، قَالَ قَالَ لِي رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم: “‏ أعاذك اللهُ من إمارة السفهاءِ قال : وما إمارةُ السفهاءِ ؟ قال : أمراءٌ يكونون بعدي ، لايهتدون بهديي ، ولايستنُّون بسُنَّتي ، فمن صدَّقهم بكذبهم ، وأعانهم على ظلمهم ، فأولئك ليسوا مني ، ولست منهم ، ولا يَرِدُون عليَّ حَوضي . ومن لم يُصدِّقْهم بكذبهم ، ولم يُعِنْهم على ظُلمِهم ، فأولئك مني وأنا منهم ، وسيرِدُون عليَّ حَوْضي . يا كعبُ بنَ عُجرةَ ! الصيامُ جُنَّةٌ ، والصدقةُ تُطفِيءُ الخطيئةَ ، والصلاةُ قُربانٌ ، أو قال : برهانٌ يا كعبُ بنَ عُجرةَ ! الناسُ غاديانِ ؛ فمُبتاعٌ نفسَه فمُعتِقُها ، وبائعٌ نفسَه فمُوبِقُها” صحيح الترغيب

The Known Universe takes viewers from the Himalayas through our atmosphere and the inky black of space to the afterglow of the Big Bang. Every star, planet, and quasar seen in the film is possible because of the world’s most complete four-dimensional map of the universe, the Digital Universe Atlas that is maintained and updated by astrophysicists at the American Museum of Natural History. The new film, created by the Museum, is part of an exhibition, Visions of the Cosmos: From the Milky Ocean to an Evolving Universe, at the Rubin Museum of Art in Manhattan through May 2010

MAN, THE UNKNOWN

There is a strange disparity between the sciences of inert matter and those ofوةنlife. Astronomy, mechanics, and physics are based on concepts which can be expressed, tersely and elegantly, in mathematical language. They have built up a universe as harmonious as the monuments of ancient Greece. They weave about it a magnificent texture of calculations and hypotheses. They search for reality beyond the realm of common thought up to unutterable abstractions consisting only of equations of symbols. Such is not the position of biological sciences. Those who investigate the phenomena of life are as if lost in an inextricable jungle, in the midst of a magic forest, whose countless trees unceasingly change their place and their shape. They are crushed under a mass of facts, which they can describe but are incapable of defining in algebraic equations.   Read the entire book:  MAN, THE UNKNOWN  (PDF)

Jabir reported: I heard Allah’s Apostle (ﷺ) as saying. Every servant would be raised (in the same very state) in which he dies.
عَنْ جَابِرٍ، قَالَ سَمِعْتُ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقُولُ ‏ “‏ يُبْعَثُ كُلُّ عَبْدٍ عَلَى مَا مَاتَ عَلَيْهِ ‏”‏ ‏.‏

True Fajr or False Fajr

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “There are two dawns. With regard to the dawn which is like the tail of a wolf, this does not make it permissible to pray and haraam to eat. With regard to the dawn which appears horizontally in the sky, this makes it permissible to pray and forbidden to eat.”(Saheeh al-Jaami’)
