Uswah Rasool-e-Akram صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم

“Recently our respected Dr. Abdul Hay Arifi, the one who has been bestowed with the ‘recognition’ (Irfan) by Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala and who is a special disciple of Sayyidina Hakim-ul-Ummat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi, has compiled the habits, pattern of conduct and the teachings of the Holy Messenger صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم spread over all walks of life, extracting these from well authenticated sources.”

Beautiful Sunnats of the Beloved Nabi (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam)

Beautiful Sunnats of the Beloved Nabi (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam)Arifbillah Hadhrat Aqdas Maulana Shah Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Sahib (damat barkatuhum) is known for illuminating hundreds – if not even thousands – of hearts with the love of Sayydina Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam).

According to Hadhratwala the heart gets more lightend than the moon and sun through bringing the life of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) in one’s own. Another great teaching of Hadhratwala: A real Ashiq-e-Rasul celebrates Milad with every breath he takes through practicing upon the Sunnah of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam).

This book is a revised edition by Khanqah Imdadia Ashrafia of the previous translation of the book “Sunnats of our beloved Nabi (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam)”, which is a completion by Hadhratwala by some daily Sunnan and etiquettes to learn and implicate in one’s life.

Permissibility of Jumu’ah Salaah in Prison

This verdict given by Mufti Muhammad Zubair Butt (damat barkatuhum) deals on the permissibility of performing Jumu’ah prayers in prison. I have read the booklet of Majlisul Ulema of South Africa on the same issue already and that an inmate is not obligated to perform the Jumu’ah prayer in congegration, but instead can perform his Dhur prayer they are agreeing upon. But they seem to differ on the lacking condition of ‘Ithnul Aam’ (public access).

An Incident of Exposing Faults

Hadhrat Maulana Shah Abrarul Haq Sahab (mudda zilluhu) writes,

One day I was sitting in the haram after Maghrib and two elderly men were sitting near me. At that time many people were performing tawâf. These two men suddenly began pointing out the faults of a few of these people because they were walking very fast etc.

I went towards them and after introductions were made, I asked the one how old he was. He replied that he was 55 years old. I asked him from what age was he performing salâh, to which he replied that he was performing salâh since he had matured at the age of 15. I then asked him to mention the sunnats of salâh. He only managed to say two or three. The other person wasn’t anymore successful than his companion.

Thereafter I told them that you people are exposing the faults of these people who are performing tawâf once in a lifetime. You are performing salâh for 40 years, but you are unaware of the sunnats of salâh. Thereupon they realised their error and desisted from this act.

Adhan and Iqamah in Details

Adhan and Iqamah in DetailsAdhan is among the distinguishing signs of Islam. Such honour has been to those who carry out the duty of calling the Adhan that they will be among the distinguished people with high positions on the Day of Qiyamah.

Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) is reported to have said, “Verily the muazzins will have the ‘longest necks’ on the Day of Qiyamah.” (Saheeh Muslim, Hadith 387)

Allah’s Promises of Rizq

First off all let’s agree on the meaning of Rizq by the help of what Shaykh Zulfiqar Ahmed (damat barkatuhum) mentioned in one of his lectures:

“All aspects of a person’s subsistence and livelihood fall under the definition of rizq, including but not restricted to wealth, status, business and children.”

We see in this capitalist scoiety, everyone will do anything that is possible to gain their Rizq. People think they are expanding their rizq by doing haram, opening liquor shops, but they aren’t. Islam tells us the rizq is assigned at our birth and on top of that Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala made five promises of Rizq. Exactly on these I’ll try to shed some light on in this topic.
