“And keep reminding, because reminding benefits the believers.” (51:55)

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.”

– Hadhrat Mufti Muhammad Shafi’ Sahab

Mi’raj: Physical or Spiritual?

Mu’jizat (Miracles)

Whenever Allah sent a Nabi (Prophet), he provided various signs which served as proof that the Nabi was authentic in his claim. These signs took forms of various unusual and wonderful feats being performed by the Nabi by the Will, Power and Command of Allah. These signs are called mu’jizat (miracles). The miracles of the Prophets alayhimus salaam were of such unique nature that no one else was able to perform them, no matter how hard he tried, and he was thus rendered reluctant and helpless and had to admit that the Nabi in question is a Divine Messenger. The word mu’jizah literally means “that which renders powerless or helpless”, and a miracle of a Nabi is called mu’jizah because the feat performed by him cannot be emulated by anyone and disbelievers are therefore left helpless.

The Day of ‘Ashurah’

by Shaikhul Islam Hadhrat Mufti Muhammad Taqi Usmani (Hafizullah)

Although Muharram is a sanctified month as a whole, yet, the 10th day of Muharram is the most sacred among all its days. The day is named ‘Ashurah’. According to the Holy Companion Ibn ‘Abbas, Radi-Allahu anhu. The Holy Prophet, Sall-Allahu alayhi wa sallam, when migrated to Madinah, found that the Jews of Madinah used to fast on the 10th day of Muharram. They said that it was the day on which the Holy Prophet Musa (Moses), alayhis salam, and his followers crossed the Red Sea miraculously and the Pharaoh was drowned in its waters. On hearing this from the Jews, the Holy Prophet, Sall-Allahu alayhi wa sallam, said, “We are more closely rotated to Musa, alayhi salam, than you,” and directed the Muslims to fast on the day of ‘Ashura’. (Abu Dawood)

Inconveniences in the Haramain Sharifain

From the noble utterances of Arifbillah Hadhrat-e-Aqdas Maulana Shah Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Sahab (damat barkatuhum):

“If one becomes inconvenienced in any way in the Haramain Sharifain then one should never complain. Imagine that those who are in the Haraim are princes and royalty. All they have to do is to perform one Tawaaf and ask for forgiveness from Allah Ta’ala. We are not even equal to the dust which settles upon their feet.”
