|(1) Islaamic History||Hadhrat Idrees (AS)|
|Hadhrat Idrees (AS) was the third Nabi who came after Hadhrat Aadam (AS) and Hadhrat Sheeth (AS). Hadhrat Idrees (AS) did not pass away on earth, but was taken to the fourth heaven by an angel. Rasulullaah (SAW) met him there when he travelled on the Mi’raaj journey. Allaah says about him in the Qur’aan, “We elevated him to a high rank”.
[Surah Maryam, verse 57]
|(2) Allaah’s Power||Fruits and flowers from one type of water|
|Allaah is that extremely Powerful Being Who has created a variety of trees, fruits and flowers from one type of water. Furthermore, despite being grown in the same soil and with the same water, each variety has different colours and different flavours.|
|(3) A Fardh||It is Fardh to treat your parents kindly|
|It is Fardh (obligatory) to treat one’s parents well in every condition. The Qur’aan has emphasised this in various verses and has even commanded this together with the command to worship Him. Allaah says, “Your Rabb has commanded that you worship only Him and that you treat your parents kindly”.
[Surah Bani Israa’eel, verse 23]
|(4) A Du’aa from the Qur’aan and Rasulullaah (SAW)||The Du’aa for safety against ignorance|
|To protect oneself from ignorance, the following Du’aa should be recited:
أَعُوْذُ بِاللّهِ أَنْ أَكُوْنَ مِنَ الْجَاهِلِيْنَ
TRANSLATION: I ask Allaah to protect me from becoming one of the ignorant ones.
[Surah Baqara, verse 67]
|(5) A Nafl|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “When a person performs Wudhu like me and then performs two Rakaahs Salaah without allowing any worldly thoughts into his mind, all his past sins will be forgiven”.
|(6) A Sin||Speaking of worldly matters in the Masjid|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) once said, “There will come a time when people will discuss worldly matters In the Masjid. Never sit with such people because Allaah has nothing to do with them.”
|(7) This World||The enjoyment of this world is short-lived|
|Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “The comfort (enjoyment) of this world is short. The Aakhirah is best for those who have Taqwa. You shall not be oppressed even to the extent of the string of a date seed”.
[Surah Nisaa, verse 77]
|(8) The Aakhirah||The people of Jannah|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said that the people of Jannah will eat and drink, but will not need to relieve themselves. Instead, their food will digest when they break wind with the fragrance of musk. They will be inspired to engage in Tasbeeh and Takbeer that will be so easy for them as it is easy for people of this world to breathe.
[Muslim 7154, from Hadhrat Jaabir bin Abdullaah (RA)]
|(9) Cures from the Qur’aan and Rasulullaah (SAW)||The cure for kidney stones|
|When Rasulullaah (SAW) once instructed that no vegetation of Makkah be cut, Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Abbaas (RA) requested him to exempt the Idhkhir grass because it is used for the domestic needs of the people of Makkah. Rasulullaah (SAW) then exempted it from the instruction.
[Bukhaari 1834, from Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Abbaas (RA)]
Idhkhir is a fragrant grass. Allaama Ibn Qayyim (RA) writes that this grass breaks down kidney stones, causing them to be flushed out. It is also effective in reducing swelling in stomach, liver, and kidneys.
