There Are Only Two Eids in Islam - Eid Ul Fitr And Eid Ul Adha But No Milaad

In today's post, we will try to cover the history of Milaad-un-Nabi or Eid-Milaad, Insha Allah. The first time the Mawlid/Milad-un-Nabi was celebrated as the public event in a recorded history was in 517 AH ie 6th century of Islam. Which means that in first 500 years of Islam nobody knew about it. And since the authorities of that time, those who innovated it decided 12th Rabbi-ul-Awal as the day of Birth of Prophet Muhammad Peace be upon him, everyone stuck to it. It spread like a wildfire. The Arabs never used to record the birthdays, it is a western concept and the celebration of the birthday was a very late addition. It is the way of Jews and Christians. The Milad was first introduced by Fatimid Dynasty or simply Fatimid’s of Egypt. They belonged to extreme Shia theology. They are the ancestors of Aga Khani’s or Bohra’s or Ismaili’s. They instituted over 30-40 festivals during their reign and of those festivals was the birth of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon hi

Reasons Why We Should Not Celebrate Eid Milaad Un Nabi

ASSALAMU ALAIKUM BROTHERS AND SISTERS TODAY WE ARE GOING TO SHARE SOME IMPORTANT REASONS WHY WE SHOULD NOT CELEBRATE EID MILAAD. PLEASE READ THEM CAREFULLY AND AWARE YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS. 1) Eid Milad is not in Islamic Shahriah, it was later introduced by Shia Fatimid in Egypt. 2) Historians differed about the date of birth of Prophet SAW. Some said it's in Ramadan, some in Shabaan and Some said its in Rabi ul awal. 3) How can a Muslim rejoice and have party when on 12th Rabi al Awal our prophet died? 4) Birthday celebration have pagan roots.  Celebrating birthdays is not allowed at all. 5) This celebration is neither from Sunnah nor Qur'an. Anything that is not part of these two can not be part of Islam... the Prophet SAW said, "Stick to my sunnah and the sunnah of my rightly guided Caliphs, beware of Newly invented matters, for every new matter is Bid'ah and every Bid'ah is misleading. (Tirmizi 2676)" 6) Allah says in [Surah al Maidah

INSPIRING MUSLIM WOMEN: UMM KULTHUM BINT MUHAMMAD (RA)

In this post, e will be talking about the third daughter of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and Hadhrat Khadijah bint Khuwaylid(Radi-allahu-anha): Hadhrat Umm Kulthum (Radi-allahu-anha). She was born in the year 603 CE, and was a year younger than her sister, Hadhrat Ruqayyah(Radi-allahu-anha). Before the advent of Islam, she was married to Utaybah, one of the sons of Abu Lahab:the arch enemy of Islam. He ordered and forced his son to divorce his wife, Hadhrat Umm Kulthum(Radi-allahu-anha). She came back to her father's house and lived there for many years, shouldering the burdens of life with her mother Khadijah (Radi-allahu-anha) Quraysh was very atrocious towards Muslims and boycotted them on the social and economic frontier. Muslims suffered a lot and some were even forced to eat leaves of trees. Hadhrat Khadijah (Radi-allahu-anha) died shortly after the boycott ended. Hadhrat Umm Kulthum, However, braced herself up and did not let the sadness and sorrow affe

MOBILE PHONE MESSAGES THAT SPREAD FORTUNE TELLING.

Humans have no way of knowing future and are not to make any guesses as the knowledge of unseen is one of the things that Allah has kept for Himself and not for anyone else. Not even prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, nor even angels. There are a number of verses and hadeeths which speak of that. Allah (swt) says: “And to Allah (swt) belongs the Ghaib (Unseen) of the heavens and the earth, and to Him return all affairs (for decision)” [Hood 11:123] “Say: The Unseen belongs to Allah (swt) Alone, so wait for you, verily, I am with you among those who wait for (for Allah (swt)’s Judgement)” [Yoonus 10:20] “Say: Allah (swt) knows best how long they stayed. With Him is (the knowledge of) the Unseen of the heavens and the earth” [al-Kahf 18:26] “Nor will Allah (swt) disclose to you the secrets of the Ghayb (Unseen)” [Aal ‘Imraan 3:179] And Allah (swt) said to His Prophet Muhammad (blessings and peace of Allah (swt) be upon him): “Say (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم): ‘I

Sins and Their Punishments. (Part II)

All praise be to Allah, the lord of the Heaven and Earth. In recent post we discussed about some sins and their punishments in this world and hereafter. In this post we will continue with this topic and try to cover some other sins and their punishments in light of Quran and Hadith, Insha Allah. 1. Rape and prostitution No matter what society we live in, rape and prostitution, both are considered as shameful. While rape is a crime but prostitution is not! But in Islam both the acts are worthy of severe punishments. Raping a woman is a filthy sin and must be dealt sternly. It not only destroys its victim physically and mentally but also destroys the society. Allah says in glorious Quran: Those who slander chaste women, indiscreet but believing, are cursed in this Life and in the Hereafter: for them is a grievous Penalty, - On the Day when their tongues, their hands, and their feet will bear witness against them as to their actions. (24:23-4). Here slandering also means a

Beautiful Appearance of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)

 The Prophet Muhammad sallalahu alayhi wasalam is known to be the most of the beautiful creation of Allah subhana-wa-taala. No was ever like him, no one will be ever like him. He had the most beautiful appearance. Almighty Allah had put a kind of awe in his holy face due to which, despite his being kind and merciful, nobody could stare at his holy face. Every denier or hypocrite trembled while looking at his holy face. His fright could be felt by unbelievers from a distance of a two-day journey Muhammad sallahu alaihi wasalam was of height above average and always appeared taller than other men around him. He (saw) was of sturdy build with long muscular limbs and tapering fingers. The hair of his head was long and thick with some waves in them. His forehead was large and prominent, his eyelashes were long and thick, his nose was sloping, his mouth was somewhat large and his teeth were well set. His cheeks were spare and he had a pleasant smile. His eyes were large and black

Sins and Their Punishments. (Part I)

In the name of Allah, the most gracious, the most Merciful. In Islamic system of governance, there is no judiciary. Usually, the respected citizen of a neighborhood who has a thorough knowledge of Islam, play a vital role in taking important decisions regarding any cases in the neighborhood. Thus, the word “Fatwa” is used for decisions given by them as a verdict of a case they handle. Therefore, there is no career path for lawyers in Islam as we find in a secular system. Quotes and references from the Qur’an and Sunnah are used draw conclusions to deal with cases. In Islam, there are some pre-declared punishments and warnings for some crimes and sins that are discussed below. 1. Stealing and robbery.  Stealing is considered to be a great evil in Islam and Allah azawajal Himself has mentioned the punishment for this sin in Quran. He says in glorious Quran:  As to the thief, male or female, cut off his or her hands: a punishment by way of example,

10 TIPS TO OVERCOME THE HABIT OF WATCHING PORNOGRAPHY.

Pornography consumption is not something that can easily be stopped. Once the appetite for it has developed, it actually increases. In his 1988 study Pornography Effects: Empirical and Clinical Evidence, Victor Cline, then with the University of Utah's Department of Psycho1logy noted that studies show pornography is progressive and addictive for many. It often leads to the user acting out his fantasy - often on children. For those who have been trained from a young age to lower their gaze and practice Islamic principles of modesty, this may not even be an issue. But for those who have sadly fallen into pornography addiction, there is a way out. 1. Decide to Quit Pornography The first step of any significant endeavor starts with a genuine decision to undertake it. This step can’t be taken on your behalf for you. It’s only you who can make it. And it’s only you who can let people know of it. Letting them know doesn’t require you to tell them. They will see that th

WHAT DOES ISLAM SAY ABOUT FORCED AND SECRET MARRIAGE

In the name of Allah, the most compassionate, the most merciful. Allah has created the bond of marriage as the most sacred bond between a man and a woman. Marriage makes it possible and permissible for them to enjoy each other. Allah has described this bond as: And among His signs is this that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that you may dwell in tranquility with them, and He has put love and mercy between your hearts: Verily in that are signs for those who reflect. (Quran 30:21) Marriage is also an important part of the Sunnah. The Messenger of Allah (May Allah bless him and grant him peace) said: “The Nikah is my Sunnah (way), whosoever leaves my Sunnah is not from amongst me” (Kitabus Sunan – Mishkat) The Prophet of Allah (May Allah bless him and grant him peace) has also said as narrated by Ibn Masud (May Allah be pleased with him) “Young men, those of you who can support a wife should marry, for it keeps you from looking at nonpermissible fema

Who Was Dhulkarnain (One With Two Horns) - Stories From Quran

There was one leader in history who did precisely those great things that we expect our leaders to do, so much so that he became well-known for centuries after he had passed away. This leader was called Dhul Qarnain, and the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و سلم) was questioned about him: “And they will ask you about the Two-Horned One. Say: “I will convey unto you something by which he ought to be remembered.” [18:83] The fourth and last story that Allah has narrated in Surah Al-Kahf is about this just, Allah-fearing ruler and his conquests. Several Quran exegeses shed light upon why Allah refers to him as ‘Dhul Qarnain‘, or “the possessor of (ذِي) the two horns (الْقَرْنَيْنِ)”. A Great Leader It is well-known that a very small percentage of mankind go on to become leaders who rule over their masses. Yet, those who do, exercise considerable influence (good or bad) during their tenures. This story of Dhul Qarnain that Allah has narrated in the Quran serves to be a beacon for an
