[10/12 17:49] Huma F. Khan: MANNERS
“The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) saw a man drinking standing up.
He said to him, ‘Hah!’
The man asked, ‘What’s the matter?’ He said, ‘Would you like it if a cat drank with you.’ He said, ‘No.’
He (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, ‘Someone worse than that was drinking with you – the Shaytaan.’”
[Ahmad; Majma al-Zawaa’id]
The Shaytaan drinks with a person if he drinks standing up.
Sit down to drink.
Abdullah Bin Masood رضي الله عنه narrates:
Rasulullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم said that
 When a person lies, the angels flee a mile away from him on account of the odour coming out from his mouth.
*[Tirmidhi 1972]*

Uthman’s wife, Ruqayya was seriously ill just before the Battle of Badr and he was excused by the Prophet (peace be on him) from participating in the battle. The illness Ruqayya proved fatal, leaving Uthman deeply grieved. The Prophet was moved and offered Uthman the hand of another of his daughters, Kulthum. Because he had the high privilege of having two daughters of the Prophet as wives Uthman was known as ‘The Possessor of the Two Lights. ‘

Uthman participated in the Battles of Uhud and the Trench. After the encounter of the Trench, the Prophet (peace be on him) determined to perform Hajj and sent Uthman as his emissary to the Quraish in Mecca, who detained him. The episode ended in a treaty with the Meccans known as the Treaty of Hudaibiya.

The portrait we have of Uthman is of an unassuming, honest, mild, generous and very kindly man, noted especially for his modesty and his piety. He often spent part of the night in prayer, fasted every second or third day, performed hajj every year, and looked after the needy of the whole community. In spite of his wealth, he lived very simply and slept on bare sand in the courtyard of the Prophet’s mosque. Uthman knew the Qur’an from memory and had an intimate knowledge of the context and circumstances relating to each verse.
Uthman’s Caliphate

During Uthman’s rule the characteristics of Abu Bakr’s and Umar’s caliphates – impartial justice for all, mild and humane policies, striving in the path of God, and the expansion of Islam – continued. Uthman’s realm extended in the west to Morocco, in the east to Afghanistan, and in the north to Armenia and Azerbaijan. During his caliphate a navy was organized, administrative divisions of the state were revised, and many public projects were expanded and completed. Uthman sent prominent Companions of the Prophet (peace be on him) as his personal deputies to various provinces to scrutinize the conduct of officials and the condition of the people.

(Stories of Prophet’s Companions)

Every Prophet has an assistant, and my assistant will be Uthman.”(Hadith)

Uthman’s Election :

When ‘Umar fell under the assassin’s dagger, before he died the people asked him to nominate his successor. ‘Umar appointed a committee consisting of six of the ten companions of the Prophet (peace be on him) about whom the Prophet had said, “They are the people of Heaven” – Ali, Uthman, Abdul Rahman, Sa’ad, Al-Zubayr and Talha – to select the next Caliph from among themselves. He also outlined the procedure to be followed if any differences of opinion should arise. Abdul Rahman withdrew his name. He was then authorized by the committee to nominate the Caliph. After two days of discussion among the candidates and after the opinions of the Muslims in Medina had been ascertained, the choice was finally limited to Uthman and Ali. Abdul Rahman came to the mosque together with other Muslims, and after a brief speech and questioning of the two men, swore allegiance to Uthman. All those present did the same, and Uthman became the third Caliph of Islam in the month of Muharram, 24 A.H.
Uthman’s Life

Uthman bin Affan was born seven years after the Holy Prophet (peace be on him). He belonged to the Omayyad branch of the Quraish tribe. He learned to read and write at an early age, and as a young man became a successful merchant. Even before Islam Uthman had been noted for his truthfulness and integrity. He and Abu Bakr were close friends, and it was Abu Bakr who brought him to Islam when he was thirty-four years of age. Some years later he married the Prophet’s second daughter, Ruqayya. In spite of his wealth and position, his relatives subjected him to torture because he had embraced Islam, and he was forced to emigrate to Abyssinia. Some time later he returned to Mecca but soon migrated to Medina with the other Muslims. In Medina his business again began to flourish and he regained his former prosperity. Uthman’s generosity had no limits. On various occasions he spent a great portion of his wealth for the welfare of the Muslims, for charity and for equipping the Muslim armies. That is why he came to be known as ‘Ghani’ meaning ‘Generous.’

In praise of Muhammad ﷺ

Remain fed up of be asleep; my eyes

Desire to have a sight of him; my eyes

Bow down of revere at ﷺ door; eyes

How caring and sensible are my eyes

No one to deter amid devotee and deity

All barriers will be flattened by my eyes

Whatever I wish is clear through my eyes

How coherent and loving are my eyes

Mausoleum’s grills are core of my eyes

Moving around core is pilgrimage of eyes

Delight of to see the dome stay unsatisfied

How intoxicated yet awake are my eyes

Just hugged the grills of the Mausoleum

How delightful and ecstatic are my eyes

The one who never visited Mausoleum

How unlucky and deprived are those eyes

My lips remained silent in respect of ﷺ

My eyes though were all reverence, Anjum

Those captivated in love, share agony and grief

But they don’t share love and their heart’s grief

They feel enchanted in trance of pain and relief

** ** ** **

Those engaged in delight; unaware of wounded

Pains don’t let change position, who are wounded

Covertly the disheartened weep, missing beloved

They’re all the time weeping remembering beloved

Many Christians do not know that in the Holy Quran Jesus  is mentioned by name twenty-five times.  For example:

.. We gave Jesus the son of Mary Clear (Signs) and strengthened him with the holy spirit. .. Quran 2:87

Behold! the angels said: “O Mary! Allah gives thee glad tidings of a Word from Him: his name will be Christ Jesus, the son of Mary, held in honor in this world and the Hereafter and of (the company of) those nearest to Allah. Quran 3:45

.. Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) an apostle of Allah .. Quran 4:171

 And in their footsteps We sent Jesus the son of Mary, confirming the Law that had come before him .. Quran 5:46

And Zakariya and John, and Jesus and Elias: all in the ranks of the righteous: Quran 6:85

The Quranic Titles of Jesus

Though Jesus is mentioned by name in twenty-five places in the Holy Quran he is also addressed with respect as: “Ibne Maryam” – son of Mary; as Masi (Heb) Messiah – translated as Christ; “Abd-ullah” servant of Allah; “Rasul -Ullah” – Messenger of Allah.

He is spoken of as “the word of God”, as “the spirit of God”, as a “Sign of God”, and numerous other epithets of honor spread over fifteen different chapters. The Holy Quran honors this great Messenger of God, and over the past fourteen hundred years Muslims continue to hold Jesus as a symbol of truth.

Islam respects the faith of others

Prophet Muhammad  was always very respectful towards the Christians. According to Islamic historians, Ibn e Saad and Ibn e Hisham, once there was a delegation of Byzantine Christians, who were traveling from Yemen to Madinah. The delegation was led by a bishop by the name of Zqyd al-Usquf, who came to discuss a number of issues with Prophet Muhammad. When the time of their prayer came, they asked the Prophet if they could do their worship in the mosque of the Prophet. He answered, “Conduct your service here in the mosque. It is a place dedicated to God.”

Jesus  is commonly considered to have been born on the 25th of December. However, it is common knowledge among Christian scholars that he was not born on this day. It is well known that the first Christian churches held their festival in May, April, or January.

The Egyptians celebrated this day as the birth day of their great savior Horus,

The Greeks celebrated the 25th of December as the birthday of Hercules, the son of the supreme god of the Greeks, Zeus,

The Scandinavians celebrated the 25th of December as the birthday of their god Freyr, the son of their supreme god of the heavens, Odin.

The Romans observed this day as the birthday of the god of the sun, Natalis Solis Invicti

Adonis, revered as a “dying-and-rising god” among the Greeks, miraculously was also born on the 25th of December

Adonis, revered as a “dying-and-rising god” among the Greeks, miraculously was also born on the 25th of December.The ceremonies of his birthday are recorded to have taken place in the same cave in Bethlehem which is claimed to have been the birth place of Jesus .

Long time back a pious person was passing through a village. One old lady was busy working on her spinning wheel outside her hut. Seeing her engrossed in her work came to her and sat beside her. She didn’t even feel his presence and kept doing her work. The man was impressed of her devotion so asked her; “mother have you been spinning your wheel only all your life or tried to search for the Creator too?”
She replied’ “I learnt everything from this spinning wheel only.” “That’s great! Tell me does God exist?”
She confidently said; “God is everywhere every moment, day or night, in all reasons and all seasons, He is present”
The scholar again asked her; “prove it. How can you be so sure?”
She said; “Look man, I operate this spinning wheel so it works. If and when I stop, it stops too. Hence when such a small thing needs someone to operate it then how come this gigantic universe is not run by any one. Who controls the sun, the moon and the nature around? Someone is ought to be there to control the entire system.”
“I agree with you. But still I have a question. Is there one God or more than one?”
She wisely replied; “I spin this wheel. I know how to move and how fast or slow to spin. I look after it so it is in proper working condition. If two or three people used it then something would have broken or damaged. Similarly if there were more than one Gods, the seasons, day and night would be disturbed. One god would like the day longer the other a longer night so chaos, turmoil and anarchy would ruined the whole universe. So there’s only one God. The supreme power who is perfectly managing the entire system”

The Monastery of Bahira

Monastery of Bahira the monk

i have been hearing about this blessed tree in Jordan from my childhood but unfortunately never got a chance to see its photo or know the details.   i searched for today and got this info. So am sharing with you all about this miraculous fact

A recent research in Jordan leads way to yet another proof on legitimacy of Islam and its messenger Muhammad (صلى الله عليه و سلم). For actual believers simple statements from Allah are adequate to believe the truth. But those who restrain from real faith might ask for solid evidences. Allah will show ample evidences on His realities time and again as a reminder to those who still disbelieve.

There are some people who are reluctant to believe the reality even after knowing the truth owing to their ego or pride. Another category of people will embrace correct faith by mercy of Allah upon viewing the evidences. Those who believe truth from Allah and set their lifestyle according to commands of Allah will be protected from pitiless hell fire and rewarded Paradise filled with immeasurable blessings.

So, humbly we introduce facts to those who might understand the truth and may by mercy of Allah turn to correct faith and religion.

“The people of the book know this as they know their own sons, but some of them conceal the truth which they themselves know.” Quran

Hundreds of evidences were given in ancient Vedas, Tourah and Bible (old Books) on appearance of the Last Messenger, Muhammad (صلى الله عليه و سلم)  Many verses can be seen stating name, native and characteristics of the Last Messenger even in recent day copies of old Books though those books had gone through many human interventions and adjustments.

Thus people who know the Last Messenger from Allah from old Books were in anticipation of Him. Here comes story of Bahira, a Christian monk lived in Basra, south of Syria and his zeal to meet the Last Messenger. He happened to watch a caravan of Arabian merchants from Makah passing by and a young boy is being shaded by clouds wherever he goes. He at once understood significance of the boy and invited the caravan for a banquet.

All members of the caravan attended the feast except the boy whom he was anxiously waiting. So he looked out and found the boy resting under a tree. As per his knowledge of Bible only a Prophet will rest under that tree. So he urged the caravan members to bring that boy to the banquet. He quizzed the boy and concluded that He is the Last Messenger explained in Bible. Bahira convinced the boy’s uncle Abu Talib to return to Makkah with the boy as Jews are in search for Him to harm.

I came to know Shafaq not long that a year or more. Every passing day unfolded her characteristics of her beautiful virtuous personality. She is as beautiful as her name that means twilight—- like twilight spread the color all around making the ambience picturesque so is Shafaq— kind, thoughtful, caring and always ready to help anyone regardless of any complex. She is lady of substance and I’m sure people like her are illuminating this world with their honesty, graciousness and god-fearing nature.

We are proud of her being there and an example for others to follow her foot steps

May she be blessed by almighty with every step she takes and with every breath amen

I wanted to share her qualities with friends.

My maiden name is Shafaq Alam. Completed Montessori when I was just 4 and was too good at math to have had learnt division sums there. I got admission in Mama Parsi School a year earlier than required age.  Passed out in 1988. Did Intermediate from St. Joseph & then did B.Sc in Microbiology.

I got married at an early age. I did not opt for Medicine in protest that I was not permitted to do pre engineering. After marriage did Masters in Microbiology in the evening session of Karachi University & an IT diploma. Due to masters degree in Microbiology I did a course of one year of Sonology and instead of getting a Certificate of a Sonographer I got it of a Sonologist. A Sonologist is a complete Doctor of Ultrasound. Did practice for a while but had to leave in 2005 as there were elderly members of family at home who started getting below par. So Allah made me what I myself did not pursue in protest to my parents. After that there was no looking back. 5 people expired of whom I took care with the help of paramedics at home. There started the Social work. I spent long hours in the hospital where I saw how humanity is suffering in this area which is not catered to till today.

I designed high end bridal dresses to take care of charity needs. My husband had a paralysis attack in 2013 & since then I am taking care of him. Though he is mobile, but for many days gets bed ridden. He has hyperthermia, diabetes & renal failure too. So I took up half of his work that I could manage with mine, since he is not permitted to travel. So I take care of his agricultural based lands in Khush ab & Sargodha & deal with real estate in Islamabad. Now in a process of setting up a new business setup of my own shortly in Islamabad dealing with the Punjab market only. I have 2 children; daughter is profound dyslexic so I have to take care that.  She becomes what dyslexics are destined to do….wonder. My son is younger & he’s my right hand in all my chores & patient care at home at the moment. I do social work in a way that I provide for tests, scans, medication & release of dead bodies from the hospital. It is a Christian hospital so I help out the staff as well. I hire those in need. As I am in constant need of paramedics myself. I do it singlehandedly. Yes Zakat & other donations go to Civil hospital where my Family GP is the HOD of Medicine of I CU. So I give him cash to spend where he thinks best. In the other hospital too there is the same GP & does inform me where help is needed by any patient. Plus some amount stays with a nurse In charge of the ICU. This is how my work goes. I’m also the Head of the family to take care of everything in my in laws after the elders passed away & now my own family too after my mother & granny. This is how my life goes
