Every thing on earth we see, is created by someone or other, if there we say it came by itself then we wont believe it.
For example, we two are walking in the forest,
we see a barren home there in the center of forest,
if i say it came here by itself, then u will not believe me,
inturn u will say to me how can this home come here by itself, no doubt someone has built it,
i will say, what is the proof that some one has built it, can u see any human around, or any sign of human existence here ?
then who is going to build this home here, then u will tell to me this important point, " listen to me carefully, if human is not present here, it doesnt mean he didnt build this one, because we are seeing a thing which cant be created by itself, surely some human happen to come here and he prepared this home and now he went away from here, so there is no body around "

now similarly, if we see on this earth, there is life and many other things, how did they come here, by themselves ?, ok if at all there was a bang and life came to existence, then the bang took place from a solid substance and chemicals, and if changes came and then life came to existence from that bang, then think for a moment, can a solid substance be changed into life or a chemical substance can be changed into life, its an open challenge to all scientists who have lived to date and are going to come, can they prepare a living thing ?, no they cant, they cant even create a living thing of size of a mosquito. Then when a single home which is not living thing cant come into existence in the forest, then how can the living thing which has so much sophisticated function with brain controlling all the parts itself, and telling u what to do and what not to do, can come by itself. Surely there is some one who has created us and controlling all these things.

Its only Allah who can create it, and He doesn’t require any process to do that, he just says “ kun (be)” and thing will come into existence. This is the same Allah to whom Jews pray, who claim to be followers of Musa (Moses), who was sent by Allah. This is the same Allah to whom Christians say is the father of Isa (Jesus) , and he was also sent by same Allah, and this is the same Allah whom all the religions say there is only one God, but yet they cant make distinction between a human like them, who gets ill and dies and the One who is clean of those things.

Finally a saying of Hazrath Ali , he said “ I thought of doing some things, though I want to do it, I couldn’t do those things, and I thought of not doing somethings, though I really didn’t want to do them but I ended up doing them. On this I was sure that what ever I cant do what ever I like, but Allah makes us do what he likes”

And the above saying is not just the experience of Ali , every human being faces this thing, every human likes to do somethings, though they want to do it, they cant do that. Why ?, if every thing is automatic like worlds creation and other things and doesn’t need control of anybody, then why is that we cant do what ever we think of doing, I am not talking of things which we like to do and don’t have resources, but I am talking of things of which we have total ability to do and yet we cant do, if everything depends on our thinking and determination, then why cant we complete those things.

Sunnah way of Personal Security


just sometime a ago, a woman was telling her servant that we are leaving home for 5 days and even our son will be going to job from morning to evening etc...

so i informed her about this and though of sharing here too, it may benifit some

well the point i want to talk was about personal security, when can we be secure from others plans and actions

we can only be secure when others dont know about us, for example no one knows our identity on sunniforum, now if i scold somebody here, he cant hurt me since he doesnt know me.

so Prophet Mohammed (saw) has taught us by his actions and sayings, that we can be secure only if hide our information from others, we can see this mainly when Prophet was going in the path of Allah. He would never let anyone know where he is going. He would say in the last moment, that we are going to this place, thus he wouldnt give any chance to enemy spy to know the information, and we know once the spy gets the information then its like revealing everything to the enemy. the enemy will prepare all way possible to fight the muslim army.

so we have to apply the same thing here, if we want to be secure from actions of others, we shouldnt reveal our information. for example the lady above revealed all the information about when they are going and coming to the servant, there is every possibilty for servant to plan anything like stealing something from the house etc...

not only this, we can be apply this to our business or anything


revealing information is like creating means(azbaab) for our loss, so hide the information and do dua, Allah is the saviour

A new muslim story

Sister Sabiha

I’m the only revert in my family and most of them don’t even know it yet. I’ve always felt drawn to this path.

“There is no compulsion in religion. Verily, the Right Path has become distinct from the wrong path.”(2:256)

My religious upbringing? Sunday school with my grandparents (who my mother and I lived with at the time) until I was 5. Then my “father” decided that he did want visitation rights and so began my trials. Every weekend subjected to beatings, verbal abuse, molestation and eventually rape. My father’s grandmother trying to teach me how to read Tarot, using me as the medium during séances, trying their hardest to turn me away from God.

And they did. I was broken, I thought surely if God allows them to do these things to me then he must have abandoned me if he ever existed at all. I cried out again and again, but the only response I ever received to my tears and pleas was “You’re so pretty when you cry.” from my father and his family.

For many years I felt abandoned and lost. Many ask me why I didn’t just tell my mother what they had been doing to me, but its the same reply you hear from most victims. I was being threatened. I was told that if I said anything to my mother that, oh no they wouldn’t kill me or her, but that she would kill them. That her killing them would send her directly to hell and eventually they started to say that if she killed them because of what I said that I would go to hell because my baby brother would be forced to grow up without a mother.

So there I was, lost in family and in faith. In the news I’d hear of another criminal accepting Jesus and getting basically a get out of jail free card. What kind of religion is that I asked? Would accepting Jesus give my father a one way ticket to Heaven, just because he said he was sorry? Did Christianity give people a pass to sin? It seemed that way to me. How could I accept the Bible as the word of God faced with this idea? Well, I couldn’t and I never have.

I started to seek out other religions, I couldn’t follow the paths of my family. For a long time I was a “pagan” (even though I only ever had one god), trying different rituals to see if it would make the pain go away. Will this ritual make the memories go away, make the nightmares stop? They never did.

I found my way to Islam eventually though. In school we had a class called “World Religions”. The teacher was a Baptist Christian, didn’t really paint the best picture of Islam, but he didn’t outright talk down about it. I took it upon myself to ask critical questions, the other kids were content with just breezing through the course for an easy “A”, but I couldn’t just sit there and accept everything he was telling us.

I went home and asked similar questions to my mother, told her the things he was saying. She told me he was unfounded and incorrect. She encouraged me to seek out the truth and in doing so I ordered my free Quran. It didn’t come for weeks, but when it did I couldn’t have been happier.

It was beautiful, the calligraphy on the cover was incredible, but the words inside where even greater. From the very first Surah I knew this was the truth. The unchanged word of God, unlike the many versions of the Bible.

Around this time though I was going through a lot of turmoil, at home and at school. On weekends and weekdays. I stopped my religious searching for a number of years, still feeling depressed and broken. Eventually though I came back to Islam, probably through one of the more obscure channels.

It was my “Paganism” that lead me back to the right path. I had begun researching religions again, this time comparing all kinds of religions and if you would believe, one little question really pushed me right back to Islam.

“Can non-muslim women wear hijab?” I asked this on a multi-faith forum, to which one reply directed me to for the answer. There I received such wonderful answers, such kindness, respect. It overwhelmed me. Seeing others talk to each other like they are a part of a larger community, brothers and sisters, brought together through faith. I couldn’t turn away, I still can’t. I’m an almost constant lurking on those forums. I learned so much about Islam through the people there, through their kindness, their words, their willingness to help a non-muslim. It was astounding. I’d been to many Christian forums before and the moment I had mentioned I was not a Christian I was told how I was going to burn in hell if I didn’t convert right there on the spot.

Not there though, no. One of the first replies was the quote from the Quran that I have at the top of this page. That there is no compulsion in religion, God has made truth stand out from error.

Alhamdulillah, it was the kindness and compassion, to someone who wasn’t even a part of Islam from members of that community that Allah lead me back to his path.

Jazak Allah Khair Sunniforum Members, you truly are my brothers and sisters in this beautiful thing we call Islam.

Zikr - Remembrance of Allah

there is no particular order as some people say these days that first we should read istegfar then durood then third kalima by giving some reasons, maybe their ulema have said so

what most elders suggest is 
1. third kalima
2. durood
3. isteqfar, all for atleast 100 times


1. while doing zikr we should know the original meaning and understand the meaning of word in arabic(like subhanallah)
2. we should bring in our heart the meaning of arabic kalima and know the power behind that kalima (like allahuakbar), we should know how much great is Allah and what all Allah can do, and we should have importance of this quality of Allah in our heart while saying allahuakbar
similarly all the three tasbihs

- though we can do zikr without wazu, its good to do wazu and the best time for zikr is before ishrak in morning and after asar in evening.
- and when in jamath its better to complete our zikr before fajar namaz and complete bayan after asar before 20 minutes to magrib and do zikr, if not after isha according to time

Adab(way) of Ta'lim

the main aim of ta'lim(reading quran and hadith) is: that our heart should get inspired by quran and sunnah

there are two things here:
1. our heart should understand the importance of quran and sunnah
2. by listening to virtues and punishments we should build connection between the knowledge we have and what we implement i.e we must be able to do a deed when we listen to virtues and stop from bad deed when we listen to punishments

1. we should sit with wazu
2. we should sit with the importance of quran and hadith
3. we should listen with concentration
4. we should sit with intention that what ever we are listening inshallah we will implement them
5. we should sit with intention that we will spreaad what ever we are listening to others

-we should read each verse and hadith for 3 times, so that we understand it properly and it is sunnah (bukhari vol.1)
-we should read only what is written in book and should not give any self explanation unless meaning of word is not understood
-and when ever we hear the name of prophet mohammed(s.a.s) we should read salam

Some Quranic verses and hadith on importance of qualities

1. Emaan(believe):


1. The true believers are those whose hearts tremble with fear, when the name of Allah is mentioned, and whose faith grows stronger as they listen to His revelations and they put their trust in their Rabb, (Quran 8.2)
2. When Luqman, while advising his son, said to him: "O my son! Do not ever commit shirk (associating anyone else with Allah); surely committing shirk is the worst iniquity." (Quran 31.13)

2. Namaz/Salah

1. Recite from this Book (Al-Qur'an) which has been revealed to you and establish Salah (Islamic prayers). Surely Salah keeps one away from shameful and evil deeds; and surely the remembrance of Allah (during your prayers and Allah's mention of your name in response to your prayers) is the greatest of all deeds, Allah knows what you do.(Quran 29.45)

1. Jabir ibne-Abdullah (rz) narrates that Nabi(s.a.s) said: The key to paradise is salat and the key to salat is wudu. (Musnad Ahmed)
2. Anas(rz) narrates that Rasulullah(s.a.s) said: The comfort and delight of my eyes has been placed in salat. (Nasai)

3. Ilm and zikr (knowledge and remembrance)

Ilm (knowledge)


1. Can those who have knowledge (of Deen) and those who do not have knowledge (of Deen) be equal ? (39.9)
2. Do not mix the Truth with falsehood, or knowingly conceal the truth. (2.42)


1. Uthman ibne-Affan(rz) narrates that Rasulullah(s.a.s) said: The best among you is he who learns the Quran and teaches it. (Tirmidi)
2. Jabir(rz) narrates that Rasulullah(s.a.s) said: Knowledge is of two types:
1. Knowledge that penetrates into the heart, this knowledge is beneficial.
2. Knowledge, that is merely on the tongue; this will be Allah’s evidence against son of Adam. (Targhib)

Zikr (remembrance)


1. Allah(swt) says: Therefore remember me, I will remember you (2.152)
2. Verily, in the remembrance of Allah(swt) hearts do find peace and satisfaction(13.28)
3. verily Allah(swt) and his angels bless the prophet. O you who believe! Send your salawat on him and salute him with all respect (33.56)
4. O you believers – all of you – turn to Allah in repentance in order that you may succeed (24.31)


1. Abu Hurairah narrates that Rasulullah(s.a.s) said: One who remembers Allah excessively is freed from hypocrisy (Tabaran, Jami-‘us-Saghir)
2. Jabir ibne-Samurah (rz) narrates when Nabi (s.a.s) offered Salat-ul-Fajr, he would sit cross-legged where he was, till the sun had com e well up (Abu-Dawood)
3. Anas ibne-Malik (rz) narrates that Rasulullah(s.a.s) said: When you pass the gardens of paradise, graze to your hearts content. It was asked: What are the gardens of paradise? He replied: The gatherings for performing the Dhikr of Allah. (Tirmidi)

4. Ekram ul muslim (Respect to others)


1. O believers! Let no men laugh at other men who may perhaps be better than themselves; and let no woman laugh at another woman, who may perhaps be better than herself. Do not defame through sarcastic remarks about one another, nor call one another by offensive nicknames. It is an evil thing to be called by a bad name after being a believer, and those who do not repent are the ones who are the wrongdoers. (49.11)
2.O believers! Avoid immoderate suspicion, for in some cases suspicion is a sin. Do not spy on one another, nor backbite one another (to say something about another behind ones back that if one hears it, dislikes it). Would any of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? Surely you would abhor it. Fear Allah; for Allah is the Accepter of repentance, Merciful. (49.12)
3. O mankind! We created you from a single pair of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes that you might get to know one another. Surely the noblest of you in the sight of Allah is he who is the most righteous. Allah is All-Knowledgeable, All-Aware. (49.13)


1. Abu Huraira (rz) narrates that Rasulullah(s.a.s) said: You will not enter paradise until you become believer, and you will not be a believer until you love one another. May I not guide you to something by which you will love one another? Spread salam amongst youeselves (Muslim)
2. Abdullah ibne-Masud (rz) narrates Rasulullah(s.a.s) said: Indeed from amongst signs of Day of Resurrection is that people will offer salam to others on basis of acquaintance only. (Musnad Ahmed)
3. Abdullah ibne-Umar (rz) narrates that Nabi (s.a.s) said: A man must not make another get up from his place and then occupy it himself. (Bukhari)
Amir bin Shoeb (rz) narrates that Nabi(s.a.s) said: One must not sit between two persons without their permission. (Abu Dawood)

5. Ikhlas (sincerity)


1. Yes! Whoever submits himself entirely to Allah and is good to others will be rewarded by his Rabb; he will have nothing to fear or to regret. (2.112)
2. No one dies without the permission of Allah. The term of every life is fixed. He that desires the reward in this world shall be given it here, and he that desires the reward in the hereafter shall be given it there. Soon We will reward the thankful. (3.145)
3. It is neither their meat nor their blood that reaches Allah; it is your piety that reaches Him. Thus, He has subjected these animals to you so that you may glorify Allah for giving you guidance, and O Prophet, give good news to those who do good to others. (22.37)


1. Abu huraira (rz) narrates that Rasulullah(s.a.s) said: Indeed Allah does not look at your faces and possessions, but He looks at your hearts and your deeds. (Muslim)
2. Abu Hurairah narrates that Rasulullah(s.a.s) said: Undoubtedly upon resurrection, people will be treated according to their intentions. (ibne-Majah)
3. Abu Firas Rahimahullah of the tribe of Aslam narrated that a person loudly asked: O Rasulullah! What is Iman? He replied: Ikhlas (sincerity) (Baihaqi)

6. Dawath and Tabligh (Invitation and conveyence)


1. And Allah invites to the abode of peace(paradise), and leads whom He wills, to a straight path (10.25)
2. Tell them plainly: "This is my(prophet mohammed(s.a.s)) way. I invite you to Allah with sure knowledge which I and my followers possess. Glory be to Allah, and I am not one of the mushrikin." (12.108)
3. (O Muslims) You are the best of the peoples, you have been sent towards mankind, to enjoin good and forbid evil (3:110)

How to bring these qualities in us

We know much about these qualities but how to bring the originality of these qualities in our hearts. The scholars say and what we see in our natural life is “ when we talk or study about a topic we begin to understand it more and more. For example when we study our syllabus of university, first time we read we don’t understand anything, if we give a second study we will know something. Similarly if we go on studying for more number of times we understand the concept better.

Therefore we have to study mainly about these qualities and try to understand them and bring them into our life.
How can we bring them into our life ?
The easiest procedure is:

1. Emaan :

1. We should study or listen to the stories which Allah(swt) has told in Quran, about the prophets and the pious people. How Allah(swt) has helped the prophets and the pious people. How the help came opposite to what happens naturally.

Allah (swt) helped musa (a.s) by giving way in the water.
Allah (swt) helped ibrahim (a.s)in the fire by making fire cold.
Allah (swt) saved ismail (a.s) by making knife rough and not cutting his throat.

There are many, similarly about the help which was done by Allah (swt) to sahabas.

When we study these things inshallah we will find our emaan increasing. And that increase in emaan will make us stand on the commandments of Allah (swt) and the ways(sunnath) of prophet Mohammed (s.a.s).

2. The second thing what we have to do is to do the Tabligh of these stories to others. When we tell about these things to others the truth will first enter into our heart. Its similar like a child studies and tells the answer to his teacher. The child is not teaching the teacher here but he is learning himself. So we should give more and more Dawah to others so that what I am telling reaches my heart first.

3. The third thing we should do is study the nature Allah (swt) has made, for Allah (swt) says in many verses in Quran . 

31.29 : Do you not see that Allah causes the night to pass into the day and the day into the night, that He has subjected the sun and the moon to follow His law, each pursuing its course for an appointed term, and that Allah is well aware of all your actions?

31.31: Do you not see how the ships sail through the ocean by the grace of Allah so that He may show you some of His signs? Surely there are signs in this for every patient, thankful person.

When we study what Allah (swt) has made for us in this universe then we will understand that Allah (swt) is khaliq(creater) of us, and everything on earth and in the sky happens with the order of Allah (swt).

4. The fourth thing we have to do is pray to Allah (swt) to give the originality of emaan in our hearts. Because we cannot get emaan from other source except to those Allah (swt) gives.
1.272 : O Prophet, you are not responsible for their guidance, it is Allah Who guides whom He pleases

Therefore after every prayer and when ever we do dua we should pray for guidance. The best time for prayer is tahajuth prayer in the last part of the night. 
we should always follow these steps. Because our emaan keeps on increasing and decreasing.

2. Namaz

1. We should read virtues of namaz, its importance its usefulness to muslims. 
2. We should do Tabligh of these things to others, as stated above when we give dawath the matter first enters into our heart.
3. We should strive to make our salah a true one as prophet mohammed(s.a.s) and sahaba had established. We cant go upto that mark but inshallah our salah will become good. For this we should check whether our outer actions like ruku, sajda, etc are made properly or not and we should also check whether our inner intentions are clear or not, whether we are remembering Allah(swt) during salah or not. And our khirath should be clear. And we should read Quran properly as it is to be read.
4. The fourth thing we have to do is pray to Allah (swt) to give the originality of salah to us. Indeed everything is in Allah(swt) hand.

3. Ilm and Zikr (knowledge and remembrance):

Ilm is of two kinds one is ilm of Fazail (virtues) and the other is ilm of Masail(how a deed is to be done). We should first know virtues of deeds, it means we should know what Allah (swt) is going to give if we do a good deed and we should also know the punishment for a bad deed. When we know this two things (virtues and punishment) then it will be easy for us to do good things and avoid sins.
Just knowing virtues of a deed is not enough, we should know how to perform a deed (Masail). For example there is Zakat, we know it is farz on muslims. Just knowing that Zakat is farz is not enough. We must know when it will become farz. Where the money of Zakat is to be spent and where it should not be etc.. So this Masail should be asked to Scholars or can be known from authentic books written on them.

To bring these things practically into our life, we have to do the following :

1. We should know the importance of gaining knowledge. This can be obtained by reading verses and hadith showing importance of knowledge.
2. We should do Tabligh of the importance of knowledge.
3. We should implement the knowledge we have in our real life. For example we know Salah is farz on muslims. Just knowing it is not enough. We should establish salah five times a day. And when ever we need to know masail we should contact scholars. Because doing a good deed with wrong method(not according to sunnah) is of no use.
4. The fourth thing we have to do is pray to Allah (swt) to give the ability to implement the knowledge we have. Indeed everything is in Allah(swt) hand.

Zikr (remembrance):

Allah(swt) says : “ Therefore, remember Me, and I will remember you, be grateful to Me and never deny Me. ” (2.152)

“The one who remembers Allah(swt) is an example of living and who doesnot remember Allah(swt) is like an example of dead” (Bukhari, Muslim)

This verse and hadith shows the importance of Zikr, if Allah(swt) remembers us then who else is required. Therefore we should always do Zikr. For this we have to do these things:

1. We should know the virtues of doing Zikr, these can by gained from Quranic verses and hadith. 
2. We should do Tabligh of these virtues and importance of zikr.
3. Scholars say we should atleast start Zikr by reading these things atleast 100 times in the morning and evening.
- kalima : “Subhan Allah, wal Hamdu lillah, wa La ilaha illa’llah, wAllahu Akbar, wa la Hawla, wa la Quwwata, illa billa ”
- Durood on prophet mohammed(s.a.s)
- Isteqfar [Seeking Forgiveness]
4. The fourth thing we have to do is pray to Allah (swt) to give the ability to do Zikr all the time. Indeed everything is in Allah(swt) hand.

By doing Zikr of Allah(swt) we get the love and fear of Allah. The love for Allah(swt) makes us to do good deeds. And the fear of Allah helps us to keep away from sins.

4. Ikram ul muslim (Respect to muslims):

We should always love a muslim. Today the biggest problem is lack of this quality in us. We do salam if we have any work or else we will not even ask about a person. When all the muslims unite inshallah that day whole world will be in the hands of muslims as it was during the time of sahaba.

1. We have to listen to the importance of respect to others, the virtues of respecting others and how sahaba used to love and respect each other though there were differences between them. We should know how prophet mohammed (s.a.s) respected and treated others, for he was the best of human beings.
2. Second thing we have to do is do Tabligh of these things, as said before first we will be able to follow it.
3. We have to respect elders and see that we become polite to others. We should respect our elders and love youngsters and everyone. We should have love for everyone and hate for none. We should never hate any one even a kafir for he can become a believer, but hate only their disbelief i.e we should never follow their disbelief nor their methods.
4. The fourth thing we have to do is pray to Allah (swt) to give the ability to respect and love everyone. Indeed everything is in Allah(swt) hand

5. Ikhlas (sincerity):

This is very important quality if we don’t have this, then all our deeds will go waste. This quality comes last into us after so much hardship and it will go first just with small mistake. So we should be very careful about sincerity to Allah (swt). 

1. We should study the importance of sincerity from Quran and hadith. We should listen to virtues of being sincere.
2. We should to Tabligh of importance and virtues of being sincere, so that we become sincere first, inshallah.
3. We should check before doing any deed that am I doing this for Allah or to show off. Similarly we check between the deed and after completing the deed. 
4. The fourth thing we have to do is pray to Allah (swt) to give the true ikhlas or sincerity. Indeed everything is in Allah(swt) hand

6.Dawath & Tabligh (invitation and conveyance):

This ummath has been praised for this work. This is the special quality which Allah(swt) has blessed this ummah with.

(O Muslims) You are the best of the peoples, you have been sent towards mankind, to enjoin good and forbid evil - (Al-‘Imran:110)

The main purpose of Tabligh is : to correct ourselves by the procedure explained above and during this process of correcting ourselves we should convey message to others with intention that it is our requirement to follow Islam and when we convey our message to others we will be first to follow it, inshallah.

For we should remember our Tabligh is not the means for hidayah (guidance) of others.
But we should always keep in mind this verse “1.272: O Prophet, you are not responsible for their guidance, it is Allah Who guides whom He pleases”

Therefore our main intention while doing Tabligh should be about our guidance and we should convey our message to others and pray Allah (swt) for their guidance.

The process of getting this quality in us is:

1. We should listen to virtues and importance of Tabligh from Quran and hadith. And how sahaba did Tabligh leaving all of their worldly pleasures.
2. We should think that now there is no more prophet to come then who is going to spread Islam. Its our duty since Allah(swt) said it in Quran. 
3. We should do Tabligh of these virtues and importance of Tabligh (It is must these days) to others. As said above when we say to others inshallah Allah (swt) will give us ability to follow first.
4. The fourth thing we have to do is pray to Allah (swt) to give us the ability to do Tabligh to the last of our life with sincerity. Indeed everything is in Allah(swt) hand

Avoding of the irrelevant:

In addition to these qualities another important thing we have to bring in our life is the avoiding of irrelevant things. That is we should avoid all irrelevant things which do not give any profit of deen(islam) or duniya(world).

Quran says: When they hear vain talk, they withdraw from it saying: "Our deeds are for us and yours for you; peace be on to you: we do not desire the way of ignorant." (28:55)

Therefore we should do what Islam asks us to do; we need not bother about others methods. As today it is common for us to discuss about all things except Islam, this discussion is of no use. When ever we meet a friend we should talk only about relevant things which are useful. And our life should also become simple and we should use only those things which are required to us and which islam allows us, and avoid showing off.

Why these six qualities

Why these six qualities

These six qualities are nothing but six basic important qualities which sahaba had and every muslim should have in them. They should be brought into everyone’s life, so that following of complete islam is easy for us. Since if we think for few moments we will find that we are not able to follow islam because of lack of any of these qualities.

Therefore Luqman (a.s) advised his son about importance of qualities of a muslim. If we read complete sura-e-Luqman we will see that he was advising his son about these qualities only. Some are given for quick reference.

1. Regarding emaan.
31.13: "O my son! Do not ever commit shirk (associating anyone else with Allah); surely committing shirk is the worst iniquity."

2. Regarding namaz:
31.17: O my son! Establish Salah

3. Regarding ilm and zikr :
31.21: When they are asked to follow what Allah has revealed, they reply: "Nay, we shall follow the ways upon which we found our forefathers". What! Will they still follow them even though Shaitan invites them to the punishment of the blazing fire.

31.22: He who surrenders himself to Allah and leads a righteous life has indeed grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold; as the ultimate disposal of affairs rests with Allah.

4. Regarding Ikram al muslim :
31.18: Do not speak to the people with your face turned away, nor walk proudly on earth; for Allah does not love any self-conceited boaster. 

31.19: Be moderate in your pace and lower your voice; for the harshest of voices is the braying of a donkey."

5. Regarding Ekhlas (sincerity) : 

31.16: Luqman further said: "O my son! Allah will bring all things to light, be they as small as a grain of a mustard seed, and be they hidden inside a rock or high above in the heavens or deep down in the earth. Allah is well aware of all things to their finest details.

6. Regarding Dawath & Tabligh:

31.17: O my son! Establish Salah, enjoin good and forbid the evil. Endure with patience whatever befalls you, surely this shows your determination in conducting the affairs.

Scholars say every parent should advise their children to bring these qualities in them as Luqman (a.s) did. So that he grows up with these qualities and becomes a true muslim.

The Six points of tabligh

The six points of Tabligh are:

1. Emaan : Our belief should be firm that “ There is no other to be praised except Allah, and Mohammed (s.a.s) is His rasool ”
-Its means that we should not do shirk (associating anyone else with Allah) and follow Islam according to sunnah of Rasulullah (s.a.s)

2. Namaz : We should establish salah which is a real one as Rasulullah (s.a.s) and sahaba had established. 

3.Ilm and Zikr : We should gain knowledge. We should know Faza’il (virtues) of good deeds and also Masa’il (how to do deed). We should remember that just gaining knowledge is not enough.
According to hadees which means Allah will ask 5 questions on the day of judgment. One of the question in that will be “ How much did you implement on the knowledge you had ? ”.(Tirmidi)
Therefore we should do Zikr (remembrance) of Allah. So that Allah comes to our mind before every act. And we can judge what is halaal and what is haram. Are we doing good or bad.

4. Ekraam al-muslim : It means honoring our muslim brothers and sisters. It means we should benefit others by sacrificing ourselves. We should never think bad about them nor we should keep jealousy about our ummah. (Jealousy of Muslims is haram).

5. Ekhlas : It is our Sincerity towards Allah. What ever we do we should do only for the cause of Allah. According to hadees “one who offers salat, fasts, or gives sadaqa to show off has committed shirk”(Musnad Ahmed). So, what ever deed we do we should remember that Allah (swt) is watching us and we are doing the deed for Allah(swt). Its very important point or quality which is to be brought into our lives.

6. Dawah & Tabligh : Its our duty to invite and convey Islam to people of this world as our prophet Mohammed (s.a.s) is the last prophet, and no other prophet is going to come now. And prophet Mohammed (s.a.s) has been declared as prophet till the Day of Judgment. Then every muslim should think then who is going to call people towards Islam. We should spend all our wealth and health to spread Islam. 

As Allah subhanawata’ala has declared in Quran about us :

(O Muslims) You are the best of the peoples, you have been sent towards mankind, to enjoin good and forbid evil (Aal-‘Imran:110)


Allah says : Indeed Allah conferred a great favour on the believers when He sent among them a Messenger(Mohammed (s.a.s)) from amongst themselves,reciting unto them His verses(by means of these verses inviting them and advising them) and purifying them(of sins and their conduct) and teaches them the book(Quran) and Al-Hikmah(wisdom),before which they were in manifest error. (Aal-‘Imran:164)

It has been substantiated by the Qur’an and Ahadithe – sahiha (confirmed traditions) that the Ummah (followers) of the Last of the prophets (s.a.s), was Divinely deputed for the guidance of all peoples (nations) of the world.

Allah says : (O Muslims) You are the best of the peoples, you have been sent towards mankind, to enjoin good and forbid evil (Aal-‘Imran:110)

This verse clearly implies that the muslim ummah is the deputy to the prophet, in his ordained obligations of inviting towards righteousness,enjoining good and forbidding evil. Hence,the obligations entrusted to rasulullah(s.a.s) – invitation through recitation of the Quran,purifying people of undesirable qualities and teaching the book and wisdom – became the prime responsibilities of muslim ummah as well.

Therefore Rasulullah (s.a.s) taught his ummah to spend their life and wealth in inviting towards Allah, learning and teaching divine knowledge, remembering and worshipping Allah. The sahabah gave preference to the above deeds over all worldly preoccupations. They were trained to practice these A’mal (actions) under all circumstances with complete dedication, patience and forbearance withstanding all forms of difficulties and hardships. And they were taught to benefit others by sacrificing physically and materially.

In compliance with the command :
“And strive hard in Allah’s cause, as you ought to strive” (Al-Hajj: 78)

The sahabah strove in the manner of prophets with piety, austerity, discipline, self-sacrifice and giving preference to others. Thus, an environment was created in which emerged models of excellence, who became best of the ummah. The era in which the deeds of Rasulullah (s.a.s) were collectively practiced by the ummah was declared to be the Khair-ul-Qurun(the best of all the times, or the best period of ummah).

Then in successive periods, the religious elite of ummah spent their full effort and energy in fulfilling these prophetic obligations. The luminance of these self-sacrificing efforts is still illuminating in the world of Islam.

In these times, Allah placed in the heart of Sheik Muhammad Ilyas (rah) restlessness and anxiety over the erosion in Islam and burning desire to correct this state of ummah. In the view of religious elite of his times he was unique in this respect. He used to remain restless and concerned for the revival of all what was revealed to Rasulullah (s.a.s) by Allah in the whole world. He advocated, with resolute determination, that any effort for the revival of Deen can only be effective and acceptable when its done in the manner of Rasulullah (s.a.s)

Therefore, such Da’i (one who invites towards Islam) need to be developed, whose desires should be consistent in knowledge, action, thought, perception, passion, compassion and the manner of invitation to Islam - with the aspirations of prophets, particularly Muhammad (s.a.s). Not only should they posses a strong emaan and virtuous deeds, but their inner inspirations should be like those of prophets, they should cherish a fervent love of Allah and his fear.

In character and habits, they should adhere to Sunnah of prophet (s.a.s). Their love or hatred should be for the sake of Allah. The motivating factor behind their inviting to Islam should be a deep compassion and mercy for Muslims, and kindness for all the creation of Allah. The oft-repeated Devine principle for prophets. “Our reward is solely with Allah,” should be their hallmark. They should have no other objective except the pleasure of Allah.

They should have such a passionate desire for the revival of Deen in the world that it keeps driving them, away of their routines, in the path of Allah; while their lives and wealth becoming mere instruments in attaining this objective. There should be no notion of personal authority, status, wealth, property, honor and fame; not even a desire for personal rest and comfort. Whether sitting, standing, speaking, or walking; every act should be geared in this direction.

To revive the ways of Rasulullah (s.a.s) in this effort and bring all facets of life according to commandments of Allah and the sunnah of Rasulullah (s.a.s), and to equip those struggling in this path of Tabligh with the above mentioned qualities the six points were prescribed.

tabligh jamath, what on earth is this ?


Firstly may Allah forgive my mistakes, the farz and sunnah i leave and accept and help me in my effort in explaining this amazing effort in islam.

Inshallah i will try my level best to clear all your doubts, which will be possible only if Allah gives me strength.

I want people to come to a conclusion, rather than jumping here and there with their baised ideas and informations, Islam is complete, there is no doubt in it. Truth is clear from error. Islam is either do or die, there is no middle game in islam. so as the tabligh is a part of islam, it is that it should be either good or evil, there is no middle path in it.

i would request especially brothers on sunniforum who occasionally show their hatred and malice towards tabligh, to partcipate here without hiding their identity,

Note: This blog is comments moderated (ever since it was created), but anybody can leave their comment and inshaAllah it will be posted if its related to the topic even though its a bitter one

Poem on tabligh

i found it somewhere on the internet, thought of sharing here

The tableeghis,
easy target for criticism,
Attacks against them launched with cynicism
Politically unaware, Intellectually Docile,
Painted by some as simplistically puerile

But I must hasten to disagree,
And quote to you some history
To prove the nature of my claims
And perhaps to defend their noble aims

When Hinduism was spreading in Mewat,
And muslims were losing iman from the heart,
A spiritual man arose who stood apart,
And founded what we now know as tableeghi jamaat

Who knew this spark of love would spread like fire,
For the situation seemed quite dire,
It transformed darkness to illumination,
And rescued the sunnah from devestation

Empty masjids cried floods of tears,
As no worshippers made sujood for many years,
And then crowds came back and thronged their floors,
You can see angels smile, and the heavens echo with applause.

The dhikr of Allah is being revived by their crowds
Throughout the lands jam'aahs travel like rain-bearing clouds
Bringing much sought for water to thirsty lands,
And turning to luscious green arid desert lands.

Some people may be unaware of this information ,
That mawlana Ilyaas was an initiated sufi master
But he saw the mutasawifs and ulema remaining aloof from their congregation,
Whilst Indias muslims plunged into great disaster

So he took the da'wah out to the masses,
Like Bees flying on journeys making honey in stashes,
Unknown inhabitations became Honeycombs sweet,
Where millions of Muslims gather and meet

They left their families and their abodes,
And embarked on difficult dusty roads,
Traveling for the pleasure of the divine,
To replace the darkness of post modernity with the sunnah's shine.

Embryonic change happens in Forty Days,
Strange Indeed are Allah's ways,
Don’t call this number a reprehensible innovation,
Perchance it be a sign of your lack of academic discrimination.

In the way of Allah each step they tread,
But only for jihad this should be said?
Open the hadith work of bukhari- the chapter on JUMUAH,
ya akhee f'illah,
In that very chapter not about jihad, it quotes the hadith of the feet being covered with dust
Fee sabeel illah

How many a former drug addict I have encountered in these lands,
Whose previously injecting hands are enshrouded with ancient sins
And now he sits in the house of God with a tasbeeh in his hands
Those same hands make dhikr on those beads of strings

How many a robber who used to steal,
How many a zaani who shamed the earth's surrounds
How many a musician singing profane sounds
Now recounts God's Jalal-it makes him yell out squeals
And now the earth begins to smile, as he prostrates and as he kneels...

How many a face- black white and yellow from every schism
Sit on a mat and eat together their repast
Whilst politicians talk of the problems of racism
Oh This is not out problem- a thing of the past.

He makes nadaama and in tawbah turns
His heart with Love of Allah yearns
God Bless you Oh dearest mawlaana ilyaas
How beautifully you turned Yaas Into Aas

From the orient to the occident
And from the south right to the north
Crowds emerge with intentions heavenly bent
And taking Allah's name alone, they come forth

Pakistanis, Caucasians, Mayalsians, Africans, And Turks
Chinese, Eskimo, and russian faces
Ethnicities unheard of fill masjids where traces,
Of their forefathers are written in historical works.

Whilst nations sit before cathode rays,
That titillate their eyes with their enticing ways,
These men rebel against satan's invitation
And turn to the work of the prophets-driving iblees to frustration

They sit of the floor as it indents their knees,
They know not of Nietzsche, Hume, Kant or Socrates,
They couldnt perhaps recount ghazzali or avicenna's complex kalaam,
But the dhikr of Allah makes their souls calm

This is not to deny the place of the mutaklimeen,
Without whom we would be in disarray,
But for the awaam such complex arguments can lead astray
So let dhawq and wijdaan provide them with yaqeen.

They are not by tales of Machiavelli's prince infected
The sahabas stories motivate their lives
Such dark political ideologies before such heros stand rejected
Upholders of truth and self sacrifice

They hold no huge political rallies protesting to creation
In the nights they stand in prayer before the answer of every supplication
And with tears flood the floors begging for mercy and rejuvenation
Once more gifting glory to the Ummah of the best of creation

Don't approach the worldy kings -they cannot protect,
A Pretzel falls into their tracheas, almost suffocating
Such a small little thing He cannot eject?
How will he give Honour to those who stand outside the white house waiting?

They couldn’t tell you about quantum mechanics or Hawkings
They couldn’t refute Darwinian thought or the reductionism of dawkins
They don’t know that much of Heisenberg’s principle of uncertainty
For to them the kalimah is a deeply rooted certainty

They might not know Chomsky’s views on Linguistic Bayaan,
Or how Steven Pinker's instincts about neurolinguistics fit,
But they have of a surety read soorah rahman
And know that language is from Allah a merciful Gift.

And not the product of random forces without end,
Or indeed a blind watchmaker -No my friend
The blindness is in your hearts-not the maker of harmony
So with Ahsan-ul-qawl..They call To the Absolute with humility

On the Day of Reckoning when the Prophets say nafsee nafsee...
Perhaps Dawkins will smile, albeit, temporarily
Thinking "Ah My Selfish Gene Thesis was true"
Even these prophets are exhibiting ultimately a selfish hue

But Then Mustafa shall come and say Ummati Ummati...
Such selflessness which will cause his theory to terminate suddenly,
This is the beloved of Allah, and this maqam you cannot explain scientifically,
So Discard Dawkins Memes for Muhammad(saw)'s MEEM

They fall not prey to materialism or such bakwaas,
They see the divine hand behind each moving leaf,
In fact they are aboard a noah's ark constructed by mawlana ilyaas,
They hold on to the sunnah with their teeth

Of Freud's Oedipus complex they remain unaware
Or indeed of changing uncertain paradigms
Imaan, Salaah, the 6 points are in the air
The kaafirs who promote intellectual kufr will pay for their crimes

Qiyamah is before their eyes
Not mere logical premises philosophers surmise
But deep rooted convictions that change their lives
You don't have to read volumes to be called wise

Those of us who study in intellectual arrogance
Forget rumi's tales of the lover's simple acceptance
The intellect is still looking for its transportation
Love has circled the ka'ba 7 times in dedication

Speech of Fazal e Karim rahmatullahialay

From Don to Da’i (A man with great emaan) :

He had a rowdy sheet (I fear uttering these words) on his name. Police always kept an eye on him. He was a big don (I fear uttering these words) in his area. It was his life before.Allah blessed him and on tashkeel he went in jamath. He knew the truth of life there and he repented from all his bad deeds. He later on became so pious and god fearing that elders say about him Moulana yousuf (rah) also a great scholar and god fearing man and amir of Tabligh used to ask him “ Fazlay karim I know Allah helps you, but I want to see Allah's help to you through my eyes, please show me once ”He was a taxi driver and earned his living through it. And spent much in cause of Allah. He was a not an alim (scholar). I heard from elders one man asked him we are muslims we have emaan on Allah we don’t need to work on emaan. For this fazl e karim (rah) did 40 days speech only on emaan to him. After listening to speech that man said I didn’t really knew what emaan is till now.Though he was not a scholar he was made Amir of Scholars. They used to be astonished when fazl e karim (rah) used to talk over emaan. Why he was Amir of scholars we can understand from this !Once Fazl e karim (rah) went to saharanpur to meet Zakariya (rah), Zakariya (rah) asked Fazl e karim (rah) to talk over emaan in the gathering and he sat infront of him. When Fazl e karim (rah) completed his speech Moulana Zakariya (rah) was crying and asked him “ please tell me do you think I have such emaan on Allah ” ( Allah hu akbar - Allah blessed this only to those people)So every one call him with respect “ From don to Amir of Alim’s ”I heard about him from many great people, I just couldn’t imagine people can change like him and have emaan like him. There is more to tell about him.
