“Human being sold himself for a low price, he was precious cloth but became a patch for a cloak.”
“The one who gets rid of immaturity and gets mature will not spoil forever.”
“The one who doesn’t make friend with the good, will certainly be with the bad.”
“The seeker will eventually find what has been looking for whether he goes fast or slow.”
“There are so many people who don’t know they are in the river and ask for water from others.”
Rumi’s 7 Advices are known as:
In generosity and helping others be like a river.
In compassion and grace be like the sun.
In concealing others’ faults be like the night.
In anger and fury be like the dead.
In modesty and humility be like the earth.
In tolerance be like a sea.
Either exist as you are or be as you look.

Al Fatihah for his Great soul

RASULULLAH AND FEMALES

Published

on

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

A man has just returned home, messed up, after hiding forever what was a total disgrace to him, no mercy for an innocent tiny heart, gasping for breath till it can gasp no more under all that soil he had just dug as she smiled and giggled thinking he was playing a game with her. Her crime? Being a female.

A woman in labour pain, after carrying her precious baby in her womb for 9 months, oh such anxiety adding to the pain, will it be a respected male, or a loathed female? Ya Rabbi, it is a girl! Oh no! How can I keep my baby alive? the only way now is to send her away to be cared for by someone else and to say my baby has died.

A bet has just been lost with no more wealth to pay for the losses. The solution? the wife will now be traded.
The parents of this child have passed on, let’s distribute the inheritance to this only child of their’s. Oh wait, it is a girl? Haha, we can get richer now! Not just the money but even she is ours now.
Those were days that just having the wrong identity was a nightmare to live through.
It is amidst this very same darkness that such light emerges, that spared no one around! Not the weak elderly or the helpless children, nor the orphans and even the ‘worthless in their sight’ women.

“..The best of you are the those who are best to their wives”,
“I and the one who takes care of two daughters until they reach maturity, will be like this on the day of Qiyaamah,’’ and he then joined his fingers together.
“One who sees to the needs of the widow and the needy is like a Mujahid in the path of Allah.”
“A man asked, ‘’O Rasulullah, who is most deserving of my kind companionship? He reolied, “Your mother”, (three times).”
..are words so foreign at the time, yet conveyed strongly and repeatedly in different ways and occasions, by a man so pure, a model of justness and kindess, Rahmatul lil ‘Aalameen- a mercy to the entire humanity, our beloved Prophet Muhammed SAW.
As we try to look at his Mubaarak excellent model, we can only cover a drop in the vast ocean in the numerous occasions of Rasulullah’s SAW most kind, caring and tolerant character with a gender which was so frowned upon.

Right down to a little girl who Rasulullah SAW once described as ‘the one he loves most’, when saying who he will hand over a necklace to, his beloved granddaughter, Umaamah R.A, the daughter of Zainub R.A, whom he calls and so gently places the necklaces around her neck. Not forgetting the times Rasulullah SAW, the leader of both worlds, would be leading the illustrious Sahabah R.A in salaah and yet on his Mubarak back sat his beloved granddaughter, little Umaamah R.A, as he read.

A man with the biggest responsibility anyone could ever have, that of conveying the guidance for humanity till Qiyaamah, who could have a more valid excuse for being busy, yet he has time to have races with his beloved wife , stand with her as she watches the abyssinians playing with their shields and spears, until she is fully satisfied , stopping an entire caravan among whom are most senior Sahabah R.A, for what reason? Because of a necklace of his blessed wife getting lost, and to appease her distress and allow time to search for it even though it was even in the middle of the desert.

“Glass vessels” is the most beautiful description that our beloved Rasulullah SAW so caringly chose when saying to the slave who sang his song, causing the camels to move faster, on which was Our beloved mothers, the blessed wives of Rasulullah SAW and the wives of the blessed Sahabah R.A.
“Becareful, Oh Anjashah! The camels you are driving are carrying glass vessels”, or as another narration has, “Be more gentle, Oh Anjashah; be careful of the glass vessels.”

Oh how extremely merciful was our beloved Prophet SAW. Never did he ever raise his hand on any woman, be it from his family or even a slave. But on the contrary he would even share in their chores, never considering it below his dignity.
Showing such love right upto even eating in the same utensil with his wives, and even eating from the same bone, and drinking from the same side of the cup that his wife drank from! When the Azwaje Mutahharaat was in menstruation, then too, Rasulullah SAW would embrace them

And love so loyal, that no matter how many years may have passed on, the support and help from his beloved Khadija R.A he never ever forgot, so much so that Ayesha R.A would begin to feel jealous, even though Khadija R.A was no longer among them. Loyalty extending so far that even to the relatives and friends of his beloved Khadija R.A was honour shown, gifts given and kind treatment carried out.

With his mammoth task, appeared many enemies too. Rasulullah SAW having to leave his home many times on many different occasions.
On one such occasion, it was a tough battle. Many enemies have been defeated. The blessed Prophet returns to his home city, and after visiting the house of Allah, to his beloved daughter Fathima R.A he goes, whom he would visit first, not just this time but after every return home. When she would visit him, he would stand up to kiss her and welcome her and make her sit next to him.(tirmidhi) and expressed such love for her saying, “Fathima is a part of me, whoever makes her angry, makes me angry.”

The love and kindness of Rasulullah SAW spread even to non family members, wether it be when the little slave girl would hold his Mubaarak hand, pulling him along with her wherever she wanted to go and the Merciful Prophet, our Rasulullah SAW following.
Or any women coming with any complaint or problem, not leaving except satisfied with the assistance of Rasulullah SAW.

Every action done for Rasulullah SAW, even by women never went unappreciated and the bravery of even women was acknowledged, like when Rasulullah SAW, talking about a Sahabiyyah R.A said, “Whenever I turned left or right on the day of the battle of Uhud, I always saw her (Umm ‘Ammarah) fighting in my defense.”. And commending her on her bravery as she urges her wounded son, after bandaging his wound, “Go and fight the people, my son till your last breath!”, the Prophet ﷺ says to her, “Who can endure what you can endure, Umm Ammarah!”.

THE BLESSED ROOM

Published

THE BLESSED ROOM – RAVZA-I MUTAHHARA – PURE GARDEN

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

The Blessed Room

What was it that makes the place you see in this video so special?

The person who lies in it, sent to an uncivilized barbaric nation, who would sell their wives and daughters for paltry gains, bury their daughters alive because they were a disgrace to them, cheat people, and other crimes, The Person of this room, in a span of 23 years , with divine help, turned this nation into almost angelic humans, getting qualities of such devotion and selflessness, choosing to give the water to the one next to him who needs it, even though it meant them losing their own life.

Such was the importance and reverence he was shown that when he would make ablution, the water would not be allowed to fall without his companions reaching for it, his hair would not be cut, without his companions fighting over it, no word would leave his mouth but that his companions listened attentively to every word and carried out his every verbal and non verbal command.

His physical room barely had space for two people but his heart and efforts encompassed all, humans, animals, Jinn and all living creatures. A man with so much mercy in his heart and so loved that even animals would complain to him if his master mistreated it, and he would comfort the animal and rebuke the owner of the animal. Even the tree would not stop crying when this blessed man left from it and moved to a new spot.

Known as Al Ameen- The trustworthy, never uttering a lie from young. The most honest worker, caring father, loving and patient husband, caring for orphans, widows and those in need, most tolerant and talented teacher, mercy to all – Muhammad, The last and final Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him)

This was his care for the physical well being, so what do you think of his concern for something which is far greater many times, that is, the spiritual well being: The state which will continue even after physical bodies have long decomposed? Such was his concern that Allah All Mighty Himself consoled His Prophet in the Quran in this regard.
He was given a message to preach to the world which he tirelessly strove for, the message to believe in One Diety – Allah, alone. To be His slave, and not the slave of those who can neither harm nor benefit, and not the slaves of desires. To strive to please Him and thereafter reap rewards for the effort, not just in this world, but much more in the life to come which will last forever, where everyone will receive the recompense for their actions, good or/and bad, accordingly, with utmost justice from the One and Only Creator.
The message that there is no racism, rather everyone is equal in the eyes of Allah, and thereafter superiority is given not according to one’s status in society or one’s financial position, but according to one’s good actions and cleanliness of one’s heart after believing in Allah.

The message to give alms, speak the truth, observe chastity, honor the promises and covenants and not to commit breach of trust.
When a person who never lied came with these messages, a message which makes slaves and masters equal, which reprimands deceit, fraud and exploiting others, it was a long awaited hope for the oppressed yet was not liked by those who wanted to oppress, resulting in initially, more of the weaker sectors of society accepting his message. Yet those who were true to themselves could not deny a message of such truth, purity, justice and kindness, sent from The Creator via a man so pure and truthful and kind. And when he would recite the words revealed to him from His Lord, one could barely deny that this is no poetry or magic, as much as they tried to pass these labels to him, but they also knew deep down, that this could only be divine, hence the power of those words he would recite. That is why they would warn people to cover their ears lest their hearts get affected by the divine words he would recite, which would affect the hearts of the those who heard it, and still affects those who hear it till today.

Muhammed (peace and blessings be upon him) – The mercy to the universe.

He never travelled even out of the Arabian peninsula as a Prophet, but his message today has reached all corners of the world. His name is one of the most common names and his followers, all over the world, are ready to die for him. How can a man have such a lasting influence? He is kept alive in the hearts of people, with so many details of his life preserved from 1443 plus years ago till today, and with such precision and care, having so many books preserved by his ardent followers and lovers, just on the words he uttered till today and his blessed actions.

What answer can ther be besides divine protection, after all he is called the best of creation by Allah All Mighty, why would Allah Ta’ala not then preserve him with such great honour till this day so many years after he has left this world.

May Allah Ta’ala’s choicest salutions and greetings be upon him, his blessed family and companions. Aameen

The Prophet Muhammed received Prophethood at the age of 40 where he thereafter began to preach his message, and left this world at the age of most probably 63, hence 23 years.
Narration of Bayhaqi:
Abu-Jahm-bin-Huzaifah, may Allaah be pleased with him, narrates:
“During the battle of Yarmuk, I went out in search of my cousin, who was in the forefront of the fight. I also took some water with me for him. I found him in the very thick of battle in the last throes of death. I advanced to help him with the little water that I had. Soon, however, another sorely wounded soldier beside him gave a groan, and my cousin averted his face and beckoned me to take the water to that person first. I went to this other person with the water. He turned out to be Hishaam bin Abil Aas, may Allaah be pleased with him. Hardly had I reached him, when the groan of yet another person lying not very far off was heard. Hisham, too, motioned me in his direction. Alas, before I could approach him, he had breathed his last. I made all haste back to Hishaam and found him dead as well. Thereupon, I hurried as fast as I could to my cousin, and, lo! in the meantime, he had also joined the other two.”
‘Urwah ibn Mas’ud said to the Quraysh: “O my people! I have seen kings. I have seen Caeser, Chouoes and Negus. But by Allah! I have never seen a king whose companions respect and honor him in the way that the Companions of Muhammad honour Muhammad sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. By Allah! When he spits, the spittle would fall into the hands of one of them, who would then rub his face and skin with it; when he orders them with something, they promptly fulfill it; when he performs wudhu’ (ablution), they vie with each other for the remains of the water; and when they speak in his presence, they lower their voices and do not look directly at his face, due to their respect and honour for him.”{qluetip title=[2]}Related by Al-Bukhari (no. 2731) and Ahmad (3/324)
Narrated/Authority of Aisha (R.A), the wife of the Prophet, “I used to sleep in front of Allah’s Apostle with my legs opposite his Qibla (facing him); and whenever he prostrated, he pushed my feet and I withdrew them and whenever he stood, I stretched them.” ‘Aisha (R.A) added, “In those days there were no lamps in the houses.” Hadith No: 492 – Bukhari.
‘Abdullaah ibn Ja‘far (R.A) narrated: “The Messenger of Allah Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) seated me behind him (on his ride) one day and told me a secret which I shall disclose to no one. It happens that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) preferred to take cover behind a hillock or a thicket of date-palm trees when relieving himself. He once entered a thicket that belonged to a man from the Ansaar when suddenly a camel came towards him weeping tenderly with its eyes welling with tears. (Bahz and ‘Affaan said:) When it saw the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) it began to groan and its eyes flowed. He (peace and blessings be upon him) patted it on its hump and the base of its head until it quieted down. Then, he, (peace and blessings be upon him) said: ‘Who is the owner of this camel?’ A young man from the Ansaar came and said, ‘It is mine, O Messenger of Allah!’ He (peace and blessings be upon him) said: ‘Do you not fear Allah with regard to this beast which He has placed in your possession? It complained to me that you starve it and put it to toil.’”
(Bayhaqi and Musnad Ahmed)
Jabir ibn ‘Abdullah (may Allah be pleased with him and his father) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) used to go and stand next to a tree or palm-tree on Fridays. A woman or a man of the Ansar said: “O Messenger of Allah, should we not make for you a Minbar (“pulpit”)?” He said, “If you wish.” So they made a Minbar for him, and when the next Friday came, he was shown to the Minbar. The tree cried like a small child, then the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) came down and hugged the crying tree until it calmed down.” Jabir said: “It was crying because of the Dhikr (remembrance of Allah) that it used to hear.” (al-Bukhari, 3319).
Jabir b. Abdullah reported Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) as saying. My example and your example is that of a person who lit the fire and insects and moths began to fall in it and he would be making efforts to take them out, and I am going to hold you back from fire, but you are slipping from my hand. (Sahih Muslim 2285)
Narrated from Abu Nadrah: Someone who heard the khutbah of the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) on the second of the days of at-Tashreeq told me that he said: “O people, verily your Lord is One and your father is one. Verily there is no superiority of an Arab over a non-Arab or of a non-Arab over an Arab, or of a red man over a black man, or of a black man over a red man, except in terms of taqwa(Having consciousness of Allah and righteousness). Have I conveyed the message?” They said: The Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) has conveyed the message. Ahmad (22978)

EINSTEIN AND ISLAM

E=mc² An Islamic formula

 



What would your reaction be if I told you that Albert Einstein found the formula E = mc² thanks to Islam?

I know it’s a claim that is not easy for some of you to accept. Let’s take a look at this claim together…

First of all, let’s briefly talk about what E = mc² means.

This formula involves mass and energy. In it, the square of the speed of light in a vacuum indicates how much nuclear energy falls per kilogram.

Since this formula is very familiar, it is easy for you to find more information. Let’s get back to our main topic…

Einstein himself stated it in his own books. “I studied physics, chemistry, and mathematics, but I also read all the metaphysical books. I read the Quran, Torah, Bible and Kabbalah. While finding E =mc², I also benefited from these books.”

Mahmud Erol Kılıç, a former ambassador and philosopher, states in his book ‘The Spirit of Anatolia’ that “Albert Einstein discovered the formula E = mc² in esoteric laboratories”.

In 1951, Albert Einstein and the first president of Israel, David Ben Gurion, had a conversation at Einstein’s house. During this conversation, they discussed the history of religions, philosophy, and Ben Gurion asked whether an atomic bomb could be made, and whether an even more powerful bomb could be made. Let me give you an interesting information here: he was an Ottoman citizen.

 

David Ben Gurion

David Ben Gurion

 

This picture was taken while Ben Gurion was studying at the Istanbul University Law Department. Later, he was expelled from the Ottoman Empire, as his views were found to be very dangerous. Let’s get back to our topic.



David Ben Gurion asked Einstein, “Do you believe in a Creator? I heard you don’t believe.”   Einstein said, “It is my religion to venerate The One who takes care of everything behind nature and creates everything out of nothing.” “What is God?”, Ben Gurion then asked. Einstein replied that “God is an energy with a mind. It is the transformation of energy into matter and the transformation of matter into energy.”

Now let’s look beneath the surface at this conversation.

 

Ayatollah Burujardi

Ayatollah Burujardi

 

This person, Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Husayn Burujardi. He is someone who has reached the authority of Mufti. In other words, someone who has the depth of knowledge to issue a Fatwa or Islamic ruling. Ayatollah Burujardi relates, “We corresponded with Albert Einstein.”

So where are these letters? According to a compelling theory, they are said to be kept in a safe in London. For a long time, their contents were not disclosed until Burujardi mentioned them. There are some statements by the former Iranian prime minister, Mehdevi Kani’nin, who passed away in 2014, on this subject, but we will not talk about it here. Those who are curious can search and find Mahdevi’s views on this subject.

In the aforementioned letters, Burujardi quotes Einstein’s statements in this way: “After reading the formula E = mc², a light went on in my head knowing  the story of Prophet Muhammad’s Miraj  – Miraculous Night Journey. When I read the verses about relativity in the Quran, another light came on in my head.”



While the Prophet was traveling from Mecca to Al-Quds (Jerusalem) (Miraj), his blessed body touched a bowl of water and the water began to move.

When the Miraculous Journey ended and Prophet Muhammad returned, the  water in the bowl was still moving. In the letter that Einstein sent to Burujardi, he said, “I found this formula inspired by the Miraj event, the book of Hazrat Ali’s Nehcül Belaga (Imam Ali Buyrugu) and the knowledge of Imam-i Caferi Sadik.”

At this point, I would like to mention the book of Tevhid-i Mufazzal (Belief and Science) by Hadrath Caferi Sadik. His Holiness Caferi Sadik dictated this book to a student named Mufazzal. The book was written to silence those who were claiming “there is no creator” by some people of his time.

This book is written in the same style as Einstein, but dressed in Islamic clothing. He then said, “Go read this book to those who do not believe in the Creator,” and all those who do not believe come to faith after listening and reading.

Let’s get back to our topic…

Hadrath Caferi Sadik had a student, Cabir Bin Hayyan. The Greeks say, “The smallest unit of an element is the atom. However, we learned from the knowledge we received from the Prophet Muhammad Mustafa, Hazrat Ali, Hazrat Hussein, and Caferi Sadik “that the atom can split, and if it breaks, and  falls on Baghdad, Baghdad will be destroyed.”

When we combine all this data, the correspondence between Einstein and Burujardi and this formula are completely similar to Einstein’s inspiration.

The articles he wrote on the theory of relativity that made Einstein famous between 1902 and 1905 also attracted the attention of the Ottoman Sultan of the time. Sultan Abdul Hamid II was aware of this issue as he was aware of everything. Sultan Abdul Hamid had copies of Einstein’s articles taken from his house through his intelligence network and brought to Istanbul.



The Sultan had the articles reviewed by two people. One was Ahmed Hilmi Efendi from Filibe, who is the author of the book Amak-ı Hayal. He was a master in subjects such as mathematics, physics, and metaphysics. He is also the Shazeli Sheikh.

The other was Ahmed Süreyya Emin Efendi, the Sheikh of Kadiri and advisor to Sultan Abdul Hamid II who invented the quick-fire cannon. These two significant individuals presented a report to the Sultan after examining Einstein’s articles. After the Sultan read the report, he also made the following statement. “E = mc² is an Islamic formula.”

GREEN CLOTHES STORY

Published

on

Azan was being recited when we came across. I said:

-Let me take you to the Mosque. It’s Friday, you know.
He said:
-And you know that I don’t go to the Mosque.
-I know but, I really wonder why.
-I don’t know, he said.
I get worried about my pants looking disarray.
I started to laugh, unwillingly.

-You must be joking, I said. How can you leave the Mosque because of that?

He said:
-I’m serious. You know that I care about my clothes and love green.

I knew that he would choose his clothes from different tones of green and he would always iron them.

I said:
-Alright then. Have you ever been to Mosque?
-I have for a few times with my grandfather, when I was a child. And I wasn’t worried about my clothes at that age.
But I don’t think I can go to the Mosque anymore.
His words really shocked me and I was sorry for bringing up the subject. We shook hands and then I left.

They told me that he was in the Mosque after 2 months from our talk. I went there right away.

He was in the front of line, and had green on him.
I approached and whispered:

-You weren’t going to come to the Mosque?
He didn’t answer. Because he was laying inside of a coffin, on coffin rest, with a green cover on it.

SHOES COVERED WITH MUD

SHOES COVERED WITH MUD

It was a rainy day when Bâyezîd-i Bistâmî left his home for Friday prayers and made his way to the mosque. The showers came in a heavy downpour and the road was very muddy.

He decided to rest against the wall of a house until the rain stopped. Not wanting to bring all that mud even into entrance of the mosque, he cleaned his shoes by rubbing them against the wall of the house.

Once the rain had slowed, he continued on his way to the mosque. The, he remembered that he cleaned his shoes on the wall of the house belonging to a zoroastrian. He became regretful and thought to himself:

-How can I perform the Friday prayer without apologizing and getting his blessing? How can I be here listening to the call of Allah-subahanahu wa T’ala when I dirtied someone’s wall so thoughtlessly?

So he went back and knocked on the man’s door.

The man opened the door:

-Yes? How may I help you? do you need anything?
-I came here to apologise said Bayezid i bistami

The zoroastrian was surprised and asked:
– apologise? Apologize for what?

And he answered:
-I dirtied your walls by rubbing my muddy shoes against them. This was very wrong of me to do.
I am sorry. The heavy rain made me forget my manners.

The zoroastrian asked with astonishment:

-But why would this bother me or harm my house?
Our walls are already covered in mud.

The mud on your shoes wouldn’t make my house much dirtier. it’s really not a big deal.

But Bâyezîd-i Bistâmi replied:
-Yes but, it’s your right as it’s your house and I should have asked your consent.

The zoroastrian asked:
-Where did you learn such excellent manners and respect?

We learn from our religion, Islam, our Holy book the Quran and from our Prophet, Muhammad (Aleyhi Salatu Vesselam)

The zoroastrian thought to himself:
-Perhaps I should embrace this religion?

Then he took the shahadah, the Islamic testimony of faith, and became a Muslim.

3 Question 1 Answer

Published

on

A group of philosophers went to Hadrath Moulana Jalaalud Deen Rumi. They said that they wanted to ask some questions. Hadrath Moulana sent them to Shams-i Tabrizi. When they arrived Hadrath Shams-i Tabrizi was at the masjid, teaching students how to do tayammum with a mud-brick.

The Philosophers told him that they wanted to ask three questions. Shams-i Tabrizi said:
-Ask!

They chose a leader. He was going to ask the questions. And he started to ask.
-You say that Allah is present, but we can’t see Him, show Him to us and then we will believe.

Shams-i Tabrizi said:
-Ask your next question!

He said:
-You say that the devil is created from fire, then you say that he will be punished with fire, can fire hurt fire?

-Ask your next question!

-You say that everyone will get their reward after life and be punished for what they’ve done. Let people do what they want!

Shams-i Tabrizi took the mud-brick and hit the man’s head in response. The Philosophers that came to ask the questions, went to
a Kadi (Muslim judge) and made a complaint.

He said:
-I just asked questions and he hit my head.
Shams-i Tabrizi said:
-I just answered his questions.

The Kadi wanted an explanation. Shams-i Tabrizi started to explain:
-My Efendi, he said that he’ll believe in Allah if I show Him. Now I want this philosopher to
show his headache.
That man surprisingly said:
-It aches but I can’t show it.

Shams-i Tabrizi:
-Allah is present, but He can’t be seen. Then he asked me how fire can hurt the devil. I hit him with soil.
The soil hurt his head. However, he was created from soil.

Then he said ”Let people do what they want! You can’t seek rights because of these.” to me. I just wanted to hit that mud-brick on his head, and I did. Why is he seeking his right? He shouldn’t! If we are seeking our rights for little issues in this world, then why can’t we seek our rights for the eternal afterlife? That philosopher was very embarassed and couldn’t say a word.
