SICKNESS – A PURIFIER
A man said to Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam):
“O Rasulullah! What is there for us when afflicted by these sicknesses?” Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Purification (from sins).” Then Ubayy Bin Ka’b (Radhiyallahu anhu) said: “O Rasulullah! ‘Even if it (the sickness) is slight (a little)?”
Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: ‘Even a thorn-prick and more than it.” Ubayy Bin Ka’b (Radhiyallahu anhu) supplicated that he should perpetually be with fever until death, without the fever preventing him from Hajj, Umrah, Jihad in the Path of Allah Azza Wa Jal and the Fardh Salaat with Jamaa’t. Thereafter whoever touched him would perceive the heat of fever in his body, and this endured until he died.”
These were the Sahaabah! They did not resort to haraam medication. They did not go into quarantine nor adopted any stupid, satanic protocols as Muslims have lapped up today from the excreta of the atheists.
A PERMANENT THAAKIR
“Every person who is obedient to Allah is a Thaakir.” (Hadith)
Hadhrat Abdullah Ibn Abbaas (Radhiyallahu anhu) said: “A man who is constantly in the obedience of Allah is like one who is perpetually in Thikr even though his practical deeds of virtue (Salaat, Saum, Tilaa-wat, etc.) may be few. The one who is disobedient to Allah, has forgotten Him.”
FRAGRANCE AND STENCH
Someone asked Hadhrat Sufyaan Bin Uyainah (Rahmatullah alayh): “How is it possible for the Recording Angels (Kiraaman Kaatibeen) to record the inner intention of a person who has not yet practically implemented the deed he contemplated?”
Hadhrat Sufyaan said: “Yes, Kiraaman Kaatibeen are not aware of the ghaib (the concealed, the unseen). However, when a person resolves to do good, the fragrance of musk emanates from his body. Thus, the Angel recognizes the good intention and records it. When the person resolves to commit a sin, a terribly bad odour emerges from his body. Thus the Angel recognizes his evil intention and records it.”
Q. If the mother is a Sayyid, but not the father, will the children be Sayyids? Can they call themselves Sayyids?
A. If the father is not a Sayyid, then the children will not be Sayyid even if the mother is Sayyid. It will not be permissible to say that they are Sayyids.
Q. A person is in debt. He is unable to pay his debts due to sales having dropped drastically. The stock in his shop exceeds his debts. Can I give him Zakaat to pay his debts?
A. If the value of the goods in his shop is more than his debts, then you may not give him Zakaat.
Q. The baby was stillborn. What has to be done?
A. If a fully formed child is born dead, ghusal will be given. The child will be wrapped in a cloth and buried in the Masnoon manner without Janaazah Salaat. If the child is born alive, but dies immediately, the normal Masnoon procedure will fully apply.
Q. Is it permissible to put flowers on the grave?
A. It is not permissible. It is a kuffaar custom and a waste of money.
