|(1) Islaamic History||Hadhrat Aadam (AS) and Hadhrat Hawwa (RA) leave Jannah|
|Hadhrat Aadam (AS) lived in Jannah for a long while, but was restless because of the loneliness he felt. Allaah then created Hadhrat Hawwa (RA) from his rib and then instructed them saying, “You both are free to eat and drink as much as you please, but do not go near that tree because you will then fall into error.” Shaytaan took advantage of the restriction and through his evil whisperings he caused Hadhrat Aadam (AS) to forget the prohibition and to err. Hadhrat Aadam then ate from the tree in error, causing Allaah to be displeased. Allaah then ordered that the two of them leave Jannah and start their lives on earth.|
|(2) Rasulullaah (SAW)’s Miracle||A Light shining from between Rasulullaah (SAW)’s teeth|
|Rasulullaah (SAW)’s front teeth were wide and whenever he spoke, a light shone from between his teeth.
[Shamaa’il Tirmidhi Pg3, from Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Abbaas (RA)]
The light emerging from between his teeth was also amongst the miracles of Rasulullaah (SAW).
|(3) A Fardh||Not obeying parents when their command opposes Deen|
|While it is Fardh (obligatory) for children to obey every instruction that their parents issue, it will not be permissible to obey them when their commands conflict with the Shari’ah. The Qur’aan states, “If they (your parents) force you to ascribe such partners to Me, about which you have no knowledge, then do not obey them”.
[Surah Luqmaan, verse 15]
|(4) A Sunnah||Eating with three fingers|
|Hadhrat Ka’b bin Maalik (RA) reports that Rasulullaah (SAW) ate with three fingers and always licked them after eating.
While it is Sunnah to lick the fingers after eating, it must not be done in a manner that offends others.
|(5) A Nafl||The reward of fasting during the month of Muharram|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said that the person who observes one fast during the moth of Muharram will receive the reward of fasting for three days.
[Tabraani in his Sagheer 960, from Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Abbaas (RA)]
|(6) A Sin||Major sins|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “The major sins are that you ascribe partners to Allaah, that you disobey your parents, that you commit murder and that you take a false oath.”
[Bukhaari 6675, from Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Amr (RA)]
|(7) This World||The world as a means to attain the Aakhirah|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “This world is an excellent home for the person who makes it a means to attain the Aakhirah and to please Allaah. It is also a terrible home indeed for that person whom the world prevents from the Aakhirah and displeases Allaah.”
|(8) The Aakhirah||A tree in Jannah|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “There is not a single tree in Jannah that does not have a golden trunk.”
|(9) Cures from the Qur’aan and Rasulullaah (SAW)||A fundamental principle for good health|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “The worst utensil to fill to the brim is the empty stomach. It is sufficient for a person to eat only that much that can straighten his back. If one has no alternative other than filling one’s stomach, then a portion of the stomach should have food, another portion should have water, and the remaining portion should have air.”
[Tirmidhi 2380, from Hadhrat Miqdaad bin Ma’dikarib (RA)]
This teaches us to eat only as much as dispels hunger and not any more.
|(10) Qur’aanic Advice|
|Allaah says, “O you who have Imaan! Seek help (from Allaah) by means of sabr and Salaah. Verily Allaah is with those who exercise sabr (and will readily assist them)”.
[Surah Baqarah, verse 153]
