|(1) Islaamic History||Allaah created the Jinn|
|Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “And He created the Jinn from pure, leaping fire.”
[Surah Rahmaan, verse 15]
Allaah says in Surah Hijr, “And the Jinn We created before (man) out of Fire derived from a scorching wind (a smokeless type of fire).”
The Jinn inhabited the earth (before mankind), but when they started to cause too much anarchy, the angels dispelled them to the bowels of the earth. Some angels took Iblees to the Heavens, where he grew up and then excelled in Ibaadah.
[Al Bidaayah wan Nihaayah]
|(2) Rasulullaah (SAW)’s Miracle||Acceptance of Du’aa|
|Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (RA) reports that he used to forget many of the Ahadeeth that he heard from Rasulullaah (SAW). (When he informed Rasulullaah (SAW) of this) Rasulullaah (SAW) told him to spread his shawl out on the ground. When he had done so, Rasulullaah (SAW) placed his hands together and then told Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (RA) to place the shawl upon his chest. After he had done so, he never forgot anything he heard from Rasulullaah (SAW).
|(3) A Fardh||It is Fardh to ensure that one’s character is good|
|It is Fardh (obligatory) for every Muslim to ensure that his character is good. After Imaan, one of the things that the Shari’ah has placed great emphasis upon is for people to ensure that their character is sterling. It is for this reason that Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “Those with the most perfect Imaan are those who have the best character.”
[Tirmidhi 1898, from Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Umar (RA)]
|(4) A Sunnah||The Sunnahs of Eating|
|Hadhrat Umar bin Abu Salamah (RA) reports that Rasulullaah (SAW) said to him, “Dear son! Recite Bismillaah, eat with the right hand, and eat from that which is in front of you.”
[Bukhaari 5376, from Hadhrat Umar bin Abu Salamah (RA)]
The three Sunnah acts learnt from this Hadith is to recite Bismillaah before eating, to eat with the right hand, and to eat from the food which is in front of you.
|(5) A Nafl||Fasting during Muharram|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “After the fasts of Ramadhaan, the best fasts are the fasts of Muharram”
[Muslim 2755, from Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (RA)]
|(6) A Sin||Eavesdropping|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “When a person secretly listens to something that was intended to be secret, he will have molten lead poured into his ears on the Day of Qiyaamah.”
[Tirmidhi 1781, Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Abbaas (RA)]
|(7) This World||The Harms of Holding this world in high esteem|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “Recitation of Laa Ilaaha Illallaah will protect a person against Allaah’s wrath as long as he regards the Deen to be more important than this world. However, when he starts to regard the world as more important than Deen, then even his recitation of Laa Ilaaha Illallaah will be cast back at him and he will be told, ‘You are a liar’.”
[Kanzul Ummaal 217, from Hadhrat Anas (RA)]
|(8) The Aakhirah||A Tremendous Earthquake|
|Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “When the earth shall quake most violently, when the earth will remove her loads (dead bodies and treasures) and man will ask, ‘What is the matter with her?’ On that day she (the earth) will narrate her stories (by giving evidence against people because she would have seen everything done on her and she will do all of this) because your Rabb will command her to do so”.
[Surah Zilzaal, verses 1-5]
|(9) Cures from the Qur’aan and Rasulullaah (SAW)||Treating wounds with the ashes of burnt date fronds|
|When Rasulullaah (SAW)’s face was injured during the Battle of Uhud, his daughter Hadhrat Faatima (RA) wiped off the blood while Hadhrat Ali (RA) poured water over it. However, when Hadhrat Faatima (RA) saw that the blood was flowing even more, she burnt a portion of a mat (made of palm fronds) and then applied the ashes to the wound. The bleeding then stopped.
[Bukhaari 2903, from Hadhrat Sahl (RA)]
When the ashes are sprinkled over the open wound, the bleeding stops very soon.
|(10) Qur’aanic Advice|
|Allaah says, “… ‘The fact is that whoever adopts Taqwa and exercises Sabr, then Allaah surely does not put to waste (destroy) the reward of those who do good (Allaah rewards them even in this world)’.”
[Surah Yusuf, verse 90]
