Ramadhan is here~ 2011~

As-salam readers..

Since Ramadhan is just around the corner, I am hoping to share a few hadith that may become guidance to us.. May 2011 Ramadhan, gives us 1001 meaning and starting of a new leaf for all of us..

Every year in the month of Ramadhan, every Muslims will fast from dawn till sundown which we abstain from food, drink, and sexual relations with their spouses.

Those who are sick, elderly, or on a journey, and women who are menstruating, pregnant or nursing, are permitted to break the fast and  make up an equal number of days later in the year if they are healthy and able. Children begin to fast (and to observe prayers) from puberty, although many will start earlier.

Although fasting is beneficial to health, it is mainly a method of self-purification and self-restraint. By cutting oneself from worldly comforts, even for a short time, a fasting person focuses on his or her purpose in life by constantly being aware of the presence of God.

God states in the Qur’an:  “O you who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed to those before you that you may learn self-restraint.” (Qur’an 2:183)

We as a muslim, we have to fulfil 5 pillar of Islam which are :

  • Faith or belief in the Oneness of God and the finality of the prophethood of Muhammad;
  • Establishment of the daily prayers;
  • Concern for and almsgiving to the needy;
  • Self-purification through fasting; and
  • The pilgrimage to Makkah for those who are able.
Here is some hadith about shalat..These hadith shows us how importance shalat is..

Hadhrat Jaabir (Allah be pleased with him) narrates that Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “The distinguishing factor between kufr and Imaan is the deliberate neglect of Salaat.” (Muslim)

Hadhrat Jaabir (Allah be pleased with him) narrates that Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “Salaat is the key to Jannat.” (Darami)

From Hadhrat Hanzalah (Allah be pleased with him) narrates that he heard Muhammad (peace be upon him) say: “Whoever guards the five Salaat while believing that the Salaat is the Right of Allah, will enter Jannat.” (Ahmad)

Hadhrat Bareedah (Allah be pleased with him) narrates that Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “The subject of pledge which exists between the people and us (the Ambiyaa) is Salaat. Thus, whoever neglects Salaat has become a kaafir (i.e. in terms of practical life, not in terms of Imaan).” (Ahmad, Tirmidhi, Nisai, Ibn Majah)

Hadhrat Abdur Rahmaan Bin Amr Bin Al-A’s (Allah be pleased with him) narrates that Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “Salaat on the Day of Qiyaamah, will be a light, a proof and a means of salvation for the one who guarded it. He who neglects Salaat, will have no light, no proof and no salvation (from the direction of Salaat) He (the one who neglects Salaat) will be in the company of Qaroon, Fir’oun, Haamaan and Ubay Ibn Khalf on the Day of Qiyaamah.” (Ahmad, Darami, Baihaqi, Shu’bul Imaan)

A translation of the Athan or Call to Prayer is:

God is Great.
God is Great.
God is Great.
God is Great.
I testify that there is none worthy of worship except God.
I testify that there is none worthy of worship except God.
I testify that Muhammad is the messenger of God.
I testify that Muhammad is the messenger of God.
Come to prayer!
Come to prayer!
Come to success!
Come to success!
God is Great!
God is Great!
There is none worthy of worship except God.

Shalat is very important to us.. NEVER ever try to skip shalat or even miss 5 prayer which is COMPULSORY to us Muslim(also as a reminder to my own self).

Here is a few hadith that may also become a reminder for all of us so that we can live life to the fullest as a good Muslim and Muslimah… InsyaAllah~

Young man, if you are mindful about God He will be mindful of you, and if you are mindful of God you will find Him before you. When you ask for anything ask it from God, and if you seek help seek in God. Know that if the people were to unite to do you some benefit they could benefit you only with what God had recorded for you and that if they were to unite to do you some injury they could injure you only with what God had recorded for you. The pens are withdrawn and the pages are dry. (Ahmad, Tirmidhi)

He who has done a wrong affecting his brother’s honour, or anything else, must ask for his forgiveness for it now before he will have neither dinar or dirham. If he has any good deed to his credit it would be out of his credit that the measure of his wrongdoing would be deducted, but if he has done no good deeds it will be taken from the other’s evil deeds and laid upon him. (Bukhari)

He who does a good deed will have ten times the amount of blessings, and I [God] shall give more, but he who does an evil deed will have an equivalent reward of evil, or I shall grant forgiveness. If anyone draws the length of a span near Me, I shall draw the length of a cubit near him, and if anyone draws the length of a cubit near Me, I shall draw the length of a fathom near him. If anyone comes to Me walking I shall come to him at a run, and if anyone meets me with sins of the size of the earth, but has not associated anything with Me, I shall meet him a similar amount of forgiveness.(Muslim)

A man is granted supplication provided he does not ask for anything sinful or for breaking ties of relationship. (Muslim)

A time will come to mankind when man will not care whether what he gets comes from a lawful or an unlawful source. (Bukhari)

Nobody which has been nourished with what is unlawful will enter paradise. (Baihaqi)
