|(1) Islaamic History||Hadhrat Aadam (AS)|
|Human history begins with Hadhrat Aadam (AS). He was the first human created and was also the first Nabi and Rasool. Because every human on earth are from his progeny, he is referred to as Abul Bashar (the father of mankind). Allaah created him from sand and then blew his spirit into him, making him a living being. When he had been created, Allaah commanded him to greet the angels with the words “As Salaamu Alaykum” to which they replied “As Salaamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullaah”. This is thus the greeting of the Muslims.
[Tadhkiratul Ambiyaa (AS)]
|(2) Rasulullaah (SAW)’s Miracle||Calming a shaking mountain|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) was once on Mount Uhud with Hadhrat Abu Bakr (RA), Hadhrat Umar (RA) and Hadhrat Uthmaan (RA) when the mountain started to quake. Rasulullaah (SAW) then struck his foot on the ground and said, “Do be still. There is a Nabi, a Siddeeq and two martyrs upon you.” (The mountain then stopped quaking)
It then happened just as Rasulullaah (SAW) said and both Hadhrat Umar (RA) and Hadhrat Uthmaan (RA) were martyred.
|(3) A Fardh||It is Fardh (obligatory) to pay the dowry|
|While it is Fardh (obligatory) to pay the Mahr (dowry), the wife may waive a part or all of it if she is happily willing to do so. This is because Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “Give women (your wives) their dowries with a good heart (in good faith). If they (your wives) give you a part of it (if they reduce the amount) of their own accord, then partake of it (you may accept the reduction) with welcome and happiness (you will not be sinning by accepting it)”.
[Surah Nisaa, verse 4]
|(4) A Sunnah||Eating from a cloth spread on the ground|
|Hadhrat Anas (RA) reports that Rasulullaah (SAW) never ate from a table. When someone asked him what it was that Rasulullaah (SAW) ate from, he replied that Rasulullaah (SAW) ate from a cloth spread on the ground.
|(5) A Nafl||The virtue of fasting on the day of Aashura|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said that apart from the fasts of Ramadhaan and the fast of Aashura, no fasts have any superiority over any others.
[Tabraani in his Kabeer 11091, from Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Abbaas (RA)]
|(6) A Sin||Abortion is the worst sin after Shirk|
|Someone once asked Rasulullaah (SAW), “What is the worst sin in the sight of Allaah?” Rasulullaah (SAW) replied, “That you should ascribe any as partner to Allaah whereas it is He Who created you.” “What sin comes next?” the question was then asked. Rasulullaah (SAW) replied, “That you kill your children for fear of poverty.”
[Bukhaari 6001, from Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Mas’ood (RA)]
Many people practice abortion nowadays in the interests of family planning or to avoid having female offspring. This is a grave sin.
|(7) This World||This world in Allaah’s sight|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “There is nothing more contemptible than this world in the sight of Allaah. Since creating it, He has never looked at it with mercy.”
[Kanzul Ummaal 6099, from Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (RA)]
|(8) The Aakhirah||The bounties of Jannah for the people of Taqwa|
|Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “(Allaah will say to the people of Taqwa on the Day of Qiyaamah,) “O My bondsmen! You shall have no fear (of the future) today, neither will you grieve (about the past). (In the world you were) Those who believed in Our Aayaat and were obedient (to Our commands). You and your spouses should enter into Jannah happily. Bowls (filled with delicious foods) and cups of gold (filled with delicious drinks) will be passed around between them and in Jannah there shall be whatever the heart desires and whatever pleases the eye (the greatest bounty being the ability to see Allaah). You will live there forever”.
[Surah Zukhruf, verse 68-71]
|(9) Cures from the Qur’aan and Rasulullaah (SAW)||Cure for wounds|
|When he got cut or pricked by a thorn, Rasulullaah (SAW) used to dress the wound with henna.
[Ibn Maajah 3502]
|(10) Qur’aanic Advice|
|Allaah says, “When you claim retribution (for a wrong done to you), then avenge yourself in proportion to the aggression (wrong) done against you (and not any more). But if you exercise patience (without taking revenge), then this is definitely best for the patient ones (because this will soften the heart of your opponent and attract him towards you)”.
[Surah Nahl, verse 126]
