Allah’s Apostle said, “When a woman gives in charity some of the foodstuff (which she has in her house) without spoiling it, she will receive the reward for what she has spent, and her husband will receive the reward because of his earning, and the storekeeper will also have a reward similar to it. The reward of one will not decrease the reward of the others . “
This is one of the BEST things about Allah. That He’s Ar-Raheem: Most Merciful. He’s especially merciful for the believers. And one of the ways He shows mercy to us is by rewarding us with more than what we deserve. And if more than one people are involved in one good deed, they all get rewarded, without any reduction in anyone’s reward. So you’re sharing reward, but you still get 100% of it. Awesome, isn’t it? :D
In light of the on-going Violent protests…
True or not, I won’t judge your “Love”
But know that you’re being watched by the One above
At Fajr Salah you’re hardly awake
But doing violent protests is a piece of cake
Muhammad (SAW) was sent as a mercy to humanity
And we, we’ve crossed all bounds of insanity!
He respected the life and properties of others
Protecting the honor of daughters, sisters and mothers
We claim to love him, but how do we know if it’s real?
Since instead of following him, we break stuff and we steal!
Everyone got offended; every Muslim got hurt
Blasphemers are defended; at least our homes are burnt!!
Would Muhammad (SAW) love this? I wish we only knew
While not everyone, but it might stop a few
Who are busy sucking the blood of their own brothers dry!
“We WILL protest, whether you live or you die!??”
How is this love, if somebody is weeping?
Our minds are furious but our hearts are sleeping…
I wish we wake up and learn about him more
Before the time comes when on this earth we will be no more
And the angels come in our grave and ask “What do you know about this man?*”
And we start to stammer and try to answer what we can
And if your love was true, then you will surely reply
But if it was not, then know that you will cry
So it’s time to act NOW and KNOW about this Great Man!
Adopt his qualities, at least, whatever we can!
And Allah will surely love you, if you love his most beloved slave
From the torment of Hell, by His will, you will be saved
I wish people understand the true meaning of LOVE
Since obedience with sincerity, is the only thing that matters above…
*This is one of the three questions that would be asked in the Grave.
Allah’s Apostle used to give up a good deed, although he loved to do it, for fear that people might act on it and it might be made compulsory for them. The Prophet never prayed the Duha prayer, but I offer it.
This shows how merciful the Prophet (SAW) was and how much he cared for his Ummah. <3
We come to know that Prophet (SAW) did pray Duha once in Umm Hani’s house. Aisha (RA) wasn’t present there, that’s probably why she’s saying ‘the Prophet never prayed the Duha prayer’.
Narrated ‘Aisha, the mother of the faithful believers:
One night Allah’s Apostle offered the prayer in the Mosque and the people followed him. The next night he also offered the prayer and too many people gathered. On the third and the fourth nights more people gathered, but Allah’s Apostle did not come out to them. In the morning he said, “I saw what you were doing and nothing but the fear that it (i.e. the prayer) might be enjoined on you, stopped me from coming to you.” And that happened in the month of Ramadan.
Imagine if taraweeh was fard on everyone.. o_O
You know how we say that we don’t feel love for the Prophet (SAW). We don’t know why we should love him and how we’re supposed to love him. And why to such an extent? That he should be more beloved to us than everyone else, even more than our own parents.
Well, it’s because we owe him a lot. He did for us what no parents ever did for their children. He bore for us pain that no one else would willingly endure. He prayed for us more than anyone else, even our own selves. He was our true Muhsin. And that’s why we love him.
Go through the life of the Prophet (SAW), from his childhood to his death. Not once did he think of his own benefit. Every hardship that he went through, every trial that he faced, every loss that he suffered from was all for us. He did it all so we’d be able to practice our Deen with freedom today. He made sure we wouldn’t have to go through hardships, so he took it all upon himself.
Just think about it. Any pain that he experienced, he felt it x2. Whether it was a simple headache or the extreme pain of naza` (during death), he endured twice the pain. :(
And we say we can’t love the Prophet (SAW) that much..
The Prophet became sick and did not get up (for Tahajjud prayer) for a night or two.
Narrated Jundab bin ‘Abdullah :
Gabriel did not come to the Prophet (for some time) and so one of the Quraish women said, “His Satan has deserted him.” So came the Divine Revelation: “By the forenoon And by the night When it is still! Your Lord (O Muhammad) has neither Forsaken you Nor hated you.” (93.1-3)
Tahajjud was, as we all know, compulsory for the Prophet (SAW). He used to offer it every night. But when he became sick, he did not (maybe could not) get up for it. He was a human. So are we. It happens sometimes that we miss out on our regular, habitual deeds due to sickness or traveling or any other exceptional situation. But look at the immense mercy of Allah. He still rewards us for those missed out deeds. :)
Prophet (SAW) said:
إِذَا مَرِضَ الْعَبْدُ أَوْ سَافَرَ، كُتِبَ لَهُ مِثْلُ مَا كَانَ يَعْمَلُ مُقِيمًا صَحِيحًا
When a slave falls ill or travels, then he will get reward similar to that he gets for good deeds practiced at home when in good health. [Bukhari]
