Al-Hujurat

🌸Nine Lessons from Surah Hujurat 🌸

When a glass breaks, the sound of breaking disappears immediately, whereas the glass pieces are scattered all over, hurting whoever walks over it.

Similarly, when you say something that hurts someone’s emotions and feelings, your words disappear, but in the heart remains pain for long.

Therefore, don’t say anything except good and always remember the nine advises and prohibitions that Allah has given in Surah Hujurat (The Surah of manners) before you say anything to anyone:

1.-فتبينوا:
“Fa Tabayyanu”: Investigate: whenever you receive an information, lest you harm people out of ignorance.

2.-فأصلحوا:
“Fa Aslihu”: Make settlement: between your brothers as believers are brothers.

3.-وأقسطوا:
“Wa Aqsitu”: Act justly: whenever there is a dispute try for settlement and act justly among both parties as Allah loves those who act justly.

4.-لا يسخر:
“La Yaskhar”: Don’t ridicule people, perhaps they may be better than you to Allah.

5.-ولا تلمزوا:
“Wa La Talmizu”: Don’t insult one another.

6.-ولا تنابزوا:
“Wa La Tanabazu”: Don’t call each other with offensive nicknames.

7.-اجتنبو كثيرا من الظن:
“Ijtanibu Kathiiran min Aldhan”: Avoid negative assumptions, indeed some of the assumptions are sins.

8.-ولا تجسسوا:
“Wa La Tajassasu”: Don’t spy on each other.

9.-ولا يغتب بعضكم بعضا:
“Wa La Yaghtab”: Don’t backbite about each other. It’s a major sin equivalent to eating your dead brother’s flesh.

Lastly, Allah says in the Qur’an “Remind, because the reminder benefits believers”.I ask Allah to give us the understanding and the IMAN to benefit from it. Ameen.

Although there are large waves, strong currents, and tides in these seas, they do not mix or transgress this barrier.
The Holy Quran mentioned that there is a barrier between two seas that meet and that they do not transgress. God has said:
He has set free the two seas meeting together. There is a barrier between them. They do not transgress. (Quran, 55:19-20)
But when the Quran speaks about the divider between fresh and salt water, it mentions the existence of “a forbidding partition” with the barrier. God has said in the Quran:
He is the one who has set free the two kinds of water, one sweet and palatable, and the other salty and bitter. And He has made between them a barrier and a forbidding partition. (Quran, 25:53)
One may ask, why did the Quran mention the partition when speaking about the divider between fresh and salt water, but did not mention it when speaking about the divider between the two seas?
Modern science has discovered that in estuaries, where fresh (sweet) and salt water meet, the situation is somewhat different from what is found in places where two seas meet. It has been discovered that what distinguishes fresh water from salt water in estuaries is a “pycnocline zone with a marked density discontinuity separating the two layers.” This partition (zone of separation) has a different salinity from the fresh water and from the salt water


A barrier between two seas
Modern Science has discovered that in the places where two different seas meet, there is a barrier between them. This barrier divides the two seas so that each sea has its own temperature, salinity, and density. For example, Mediterranean Sea water is warm, saline, and less dense, compared to Atlantic Ocean water. When Mediterranean Sea water enters the Atlantic over the Gibraltar sill, it moves several hundred kilometers into the Atlantic at a depth of about 1000 meters with its own warm, saline, and less dense characteristics. The Mediterranean water stabilizes at this depth.

— Are there any Al-Quran verses that tell about sadaqah (charity)?

Yes! One of them is Surah Al-Nisa verse 114, which means; No good is there in much of their private conversation, except for those who enjoin (human)to give charity or provide peace between people. And whoever does that seeking means to the approval of Almighty Allah-then We are going to give him a great reward

—– Are there any Al-Quran verses stating about reward for charity?

Certainly! One of them is Surah Al-Hadid verse 18, which means; Indeed, the people who pratice charity either men or women and (they who) have loaned Almighty Allah a goodly loan-it will be multiplied for them, and they will have a noble reward

Juwairiyah bint Al-Harith (May Allah be pleased with her), the Mother of the Believers, reported:

1393573_907935802583719_4610512232281899766_n (1)

The Prophet (ﷺ) came out from my apartment in the morning as I was busy in performing the dawn prayer. He came back in the forenoon and found me sitting there. The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Are you still in the same position as I left you.” I replied in the affirmative. Thereupon the Prophet said, “I recited four words three times after I had left you. If these are to be weighed against all you have recited since morning, these will be heavier. These are:

Subhan-Allahi wa bihamdihi, `adada khalqihi, wa rida nafsihi, wa zinatah `arshihi, wa midada kalimatihi

[Allah is free from imperfection and I begin with His praise, as many times as the number of His creatures, in accordance with His Good Pleasure, equal to the weight of His Throne and equal to the ink that may be used in recording the words (for His Praise)].”

[Muslim].

 Being a humble Muslim I feel my duty to clarify to the best of my knowledge, the confusion and misconception about Islam in other religions and societies.

I am not very religious or a practicing Muslim or scholar. Neither have I had much knowledge.  I apologize before I start to forgive me if any word offends anyone or if I’m misunderstood——

Islam is a religion of peace, nature and natural instinct so does not deny any natural requirement. Hence all Fine Arts are originally applicable in Islam. All that gives beauty, amusement and delight to human life are acceptable.

The Quran says;

“Say; ‘who has forbidden you to wear the nice clothes or to eat the good things which Allah bestowed upon his servants?” ‘SAY; “these are for the faithful in the life of this world, (though shared by others)” but they shall be theirs alone on the Day of Resurrection…Thus We plain Our revelations to men of understanding”

(Al-A’raf 7: 32)

There are just two limitations:

First, there should not be violation of any religious order. For instance there should be no idolatry and vulgarity reflected through their art work in any form

Second, everything must be in moderation. It is not approved by Islam, for a person to be so much engrossed in some of the fine arts as to ignore his family, his social duties and even God.

It is but baseless assumption to assume that image of any living thing is forbidden in Islam. In fact every image drawn by hand, shot by the camera or used for cinema or television is permissible if not reflecting idolatry and gibbering obscenity.

Since the Quran is the justice for us, and the basis for everything valid or invalid is laid down here, it would have been clearly mentioned if illustration is prohibited

ءَامَنَ ٱلرَّسُولُ بِمَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيۡهِ مِن رَّبِّهِۦ وَٱلۡمُؤۡمِنُونَ‌ۚ كُلٌّ ءَامَنَ بِٱللَّهِ وَمَلَـٰٓٮِٕكَتِهِۦ وَكُتُبِهِۦ وَرُسُلِهِۦ لَا نُفَرِّقُ بَيۡنَ أَحَدٍ۬ مِّن رُّسُلِهِۦ‌ۚ وَقَالُواْ سَمِعۡنَا وَأَطَعۡنَا‌ۖ غُفۡرَانَكَ رَبَّنَا وَإِلَيۡكَ ٱلۡمَصِيرُ (٢٨٥) لَا يُكَلِّفُ ٱللَّهُ نَفۡسًا إِلَّا وُسۡعَهَا‌ۚ لَهَا مَا كَسَبَتۡ وَعَلَيۡہَا مَا ٱكۡتَسَبَتۡ‌ۗ رَبَّنَا لَا تُؤَاخِذۡنَآ إِن نَّسِينَآ أَوۡ أَخۡطَأۡنَا‌ۚ رَبَّنَا وَلَا تَحۡمِلۡ عَلَيۡنَآ إِصۡرً۬ا كَمَا حَمَلۡتَهُ ۥ عَلَى ٱلَّذِينَ مِن قَبۡلِنَا‌ۚ رَبَّنَا وَلَا تُحَمِّلۡنَا مَا لَا طَاقَةَ لَنَا بِهِۦ‌ۖ وَٱعۡفُ عَنَّا وَٱغۡفِرۡ لَنَا وَٱرۡحَمۡنَآ‌ۚ أَنتَ مَوۡلَٮٰنَا فَٱنصُرۡنَا عَلَى ٱلۡقَوۡمِ ٱلۡڪَـٰفِرِينَ (٢٨٦)

Surah Al-Baqara

The messenger believeth in that which hath been revealed unto him from his Lord and (so do) believers. Each one believeth in Allah and His angels and His scriptures and His messengers – We make no distinction between any of His messengers – and they say: We hear, and we obey. (Grant us) Thy forgiveness, our Lord. Unto Thee is the journeying. (285) Allah tasketh not a soul beyond its scope. For it (is only) that which it hath earned, and against it (only) that which it hath deserved. Our Lord! Condemn us not if we forget, or miss the mark! Our Lord! Lay not on us such a burden as thou didst lay on those before us! Our Lord! Impose not on us that which we have not the strength to bear! Pardon us, absolve us and have mercy on us, Thou, our Protector, and give us victory over the disbelieving folk. (286)

Commentary

These are the last two verses of Surah al-Baqarah. Great merits have been attributed to these two verses in authentic ahadith. The Holy Prophet Sallallahu ‘Alayhi Wasallam: Peace be upon him has said that one who recites these two verses during the night, they will be sufficient for him.

The noble Qur’an, towards the far end, teaches Muslims to make a special du’a or prayer in which forgiveness has been sought on commission of some act because of forgetfulness or neglect or mistake. It was said: Our Lord, do not hold us accountable, if we forget or make a mistake.

In short, Allah Almighty bestowed His best when He promised the acceptance of all these prayers through His Rasul (Prophet), the last among the prophets, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him.
