|(1) Islaamic History||The creation of the angels|
|A narration of Muslim states that Allaah has created the angels from (Noor) celestial light. Allaah has created countless angels. Amongst them are those who carry Allaah’s Arsh and those who are close to Allaah such as Hadhrat Jibra’eel (AS), Hadhrat Mikaa’eel (AS), Hadhrat Israafeel (AS), Hadhrat Israa’eel (AS) and others. The Qur’aan mentions that Allaah deploys the angels to run the affairs of the universe. The Ahadeeth state that the name of the angel at the gate of Jannah is Ridwaan and the angel at the gate of Jahannam is called Maalik.
Allaah says, “All praise be to Allaah, the Creator of the heavens and the earth, Who made (some of) the angels Messengers (carrying His messages to the Ambiyaa), possessing two, three and four wings. Allaah increases in His creation as He pleases (making some larger and more powerful than others). Verily, Allaah has power over all things. ”
[Surah Faatir, verse 1]
|(2) Rasulullaah (SAW)’s Miracle||Blessings in food|
|Hadhrat Anas (RA) reports that when Rasulullaah (SAW) married Hadhrat Zaynab bint Jahash (RA), Hadhrat Ummu Sulaym (RA) sent Hadhrat Anas (RA) with some food to Rasulullaah (SAW). She also sent him with a message to convey Salaams and to say that this little food is for Rasulullaah (SAW). When Rasulullaah (SAW) received the food, he placed it in a corner of the room and sent Hadhrat Anas (RA) to invite the Sahabah (RA) for a meal. This occurred during a time of difficulty and three hundred Sahabah (RA) turned up for the meal. Rasulullaah (SAW) called them in to eat in groups of ten until they were all filled. When Hadhrat Anas (RA) looked into the dish after all had eaten, he noted that there was as much food left over as there had been when the food was sent.

|(3) A Fardh||The daughter’s share of inheritance|
|It is Fardh to give a daughter one part of the father’s estate, whereas the son receives two parts. Allaah says, “Allaah instructs you concerning your children. For a male is the share of two females”
[Surah Nisaa, verse 11]
|(4) A Sunnah||Shaking hands when seeing someone off|
|Whenever Rasulullaah (SAW) saw someone off, he took the person’s hand in his own and would not withdraw his hand until the person himself did so.
[Tirmidhi 3442, from Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Umar (RA)]
|(5) A Nafl||The virtue of the Ishraaq Salaah|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “Allaah says, ‘O son of Aadam! Perform two Rakaahs Salaah for me at the beginning of the day (the Ishraaq Salaah) and I shall see to all your tasks for the rest of the day.’”
|(6) A Sin||Three major sins and the harm they cause|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “When three sins are committed, Imaan departs from the body;
Imaan leaves their bodies when engage in these acts and returns only after they have completed.”
[Bukhaari 2475, from Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (RA)]
|(7) This World||Man’s rights in this world|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said that apart from three things, a man is not entitled to any other rights in this world. These are:
He will be required to account for everything more than this.
|(8) The Aakhirah||The condition of people on the Day of Qiyaamah|
|Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “On that day people will return (to the Plain of Resurrection) in different groups to witness (the consequences of) their actions. (They will therefore proceed either to Jannah or to Jahannam, depending on the group they are with.) Whoever (sincerely) does an atom’s weight of good will see it (its consequences when he is rewarded for it) and whoever does an atom’s weight of evil (without securing Allaah’s forgiveness for it) will see it (its consequences when he is punished for it)”.
[Surah Zilzaal, verses 6-8]
|(9) Cures from the Qur’aan and Rasulullaah (SAW)||Thareed is a strengthening meal|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) once said, “The status that Aa’isha occupies amongst women is like the status that Thareed enjoys amongst all foods.”
Thareed is made of curry, which is the best of all gravies, and from bread, which is the best of all foods. Thareed is then prepared when the two are mixed, a meal that is most nutritious.
[Tibbun Nabawi (SAW)]
|(10) Qur’aanic Advice|
|Allaah says, “O people, eat of the lawful (that which has been declared lawful by Allaah and that which is lawfully acquired) and pure (and wholesome) things of the earth, and do not follow in the footsteps of Shaytaan (by making a Halaal thing Haraam or a Haraam thing Halaal). Indeed, he is your open enemy. He (Shaytaan) instructs you only to commit evil acts, acts of immodesty and to attribute to Allaah such things about which you have no knowledge (no knowledge that these matters are from Allaah, such as the things that people declare Haraam by themselves or when they change the text of what Allaah has revealed).”
[Surah Baqarah, verses 168-169]
