Slaughtering a sacrifice on Eid Al-Adha

555916_307972489342555_841356885_n

The best deed one can perform during these ten days of Dhul-Hijjah is to slaughter a sacrifice. This command was mentioned by Allah, {And perform Salaah for your Sustainer and *sacrifice*.} Did you know that for the ten years the Prophet (saw) was in Madinah, he offered it every year without exception? So have you begun planning yours? There are a few days remaining and you should begin concluding your purchase soon. Look for a healthy animal and don’t hold back on your money. Don’t complain about the price or even brag about it as it is a form of charity. Try your utmost best to get involved in the process of slaughtering, eating the sacrifice yourself in the morning of Eid, and distributing to family, friends, and the poor. Every second of your effort is a huge reward.

The Prophet (saw) said, “There is nothing dearer to Allah Ta’ala during the days of sacrifice than the sacrificing of animals. The sacrificed animal shall come on the day of Qiyamah with its horns, hair and hooves (to be weighed in reward). The sacrifice is accepted by Allah Ta’ala before the blood reaches the ground. Therefore sacrifice with an open and happy heart.”

[Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah, authenticated by Al-Albani]

“Give me permission to fornicate…”

fornicationislam

Once as the Messenger of Allah, salah allahu ‘alayhi wa salam, was seated with his companions in the mosque, a young man walked in and he seemed as though he was looking for someone. He kept moving his glance left and right until it fell on the Prophet, salah allahu ‘alahyhi wa salam. He began to walk towards him.

He then uttered boldly: O Messenger of Allah, give me permission to fornicate..”

The Prophet replied: “Do you accept it (fornication) for your mother?”

The young man said: “No.”

The Prophet replied: “And likewise, people don’t like it for their mothers.”

The Prophet then said: Do you accept it for your sister?”

The young man replied: “No.”

The Prophet said: “And likewise, people don’t like it for their sisters.”

The Prophet then said: “You should then like for people what you like for yourself, and dislike for people what you dislike for yourself.”

The young man felt that he had committed a mistake. He then said with all humility: “Pray to Allah to purify my heart.”

The Prophet asked the young man to get nearer and nearer to him, and then he placed his hand on his chest, and said: O Allah, guide his heart, forgive his sins, and protect his chastity.”

The young man said as he was leaving the mosque: I swear by Allah that I walked into the Prophet and there wasn’t anything more beloved to me than zina, and I leave and there isn’t anything more disgusting to me than zina,”

[Ahmad, Sahih Hadith]


“…is better than the world and whatever is in it.”

Do you really know what the entire world is worth compared to Paradise? You would think that all the money and amazing cars, the glorious palaces and servants, and traveling to the most scenic beaches is the height of satisfaction…right? Well, it’s not. It’s not even worth the tiniest place in the vast grandeur of Paradise! You can be given every sort of pleasure today, right this moment, but it would melt in comparison to the pleasure of the Hereafter.  Don’t make this world your final goal and throw away your enduring happiness. Don’t think for a second that money, cars, and houses is what we live for. If it really mattered to Allah, he would have given everyone these pleasures. What He wants for us is far better and lasting. Keep working for it and try to imagine from time to time your place in Paradise. You’ll soon know why you sacrificed everything for it, Insha’Allah.

The Prophet (salah allahu ‘alayhi wa salam) said, “A (small) place equal to an area occupied by a whip in Paradise is better than the (whole) world and whatever is in it.” [Bukhari]


Humbleness of the Prophet (saw) | Amazing!

“I have not been sent to curse.”

The Sahabah told the Prophet (salah allahu ‘alayhi wa salam) in the battle of Uhud: “Call down a curse upon them O Messenger of Allah!” whereupon he said: “I have not been sent to curse. I have been sent as compassion.”

The *mercy* our Prophet displayed in comparison to the savagery of our enemies today!
