Do you believe in astrology?

I still remember the date 12-12-12.
It was said to be the last day of the earth according to a Chinese calendar.

But, We’ve now reached the end of the decade and Alhumdulillah (by the grace of Almighty GOD) nothing has happened to us. We’re still alive. The whole world is alive.

You might be all thinking what is the reason of this blog post and what made me so long to write this blog post today. Well, I want you all to think that ‘Have anyone notified this Word about COVID-19’? And the impact it had on the lives of the people?
No.

So, why we should believe in astrology. We know almost everyone fails to do it and also those who do have some amount of knowledge in this field are have mostly done some kind of educational and scientific researches. Like to pretend a weather forecast is easy nowadays. I can be done with the help of science. We can know weather of any place of the world in minutes through smartphone apps while sitting at our homes.

Many predictions are also based on facts and/or various conditions depending upon the situations This differs from people to people. According to me there is a much interference of Psychology and behavior of the people which helps the astrologers to know more about the ones who need help of an astrologer.

So, don’t believe in astrologers. They can’t even predict their own lives. Do hardwork and have patience and pray to the lord of both the worlds. There is no one apart from Almighty Allah who knows better that anyone else.

Thank you and Take care.

Elect a True and Faithfull Leader

Hi and Assalaam u alaikum to everyone.

Today i want to share with you a fact which is root of major causes and affects our life. Which relates us with socialy and personaly. To whoom we elect for solving our problems and for the growth of our people & society – They’re Our Leaders.

Elections are near in India and the fact i want to share with you implies all around the globe. This fact relates to destruction of the Life of the innocent lives, humanity and the whole world if not properly followed. This fact leads to the Last Hour – Doomsday. This True fact is a Hadith which was sayed by the Last Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) about 1400 years ago.

Hadith – Sahih Al Bukhari – Book of Knowledge
Volume 001, Book 003, Hadith Number 056.

Narrated By Abu Huraira : While the Prophet was saying something in a gathering, a Bedouin came and asked him, “When would the Hour (Doomsday) take place?” Allah’s Apostle continued his talk, so some people said that Allah’s Apostle had heard the question, but did not like what that Bedouin had asked. Some of them said that Alllah’s Apostle had not heard it. When the Prophet finished his speech, he said, “Where is the questioner, who enquired about the Hour (Doomsday)?” The Bedouin said, “I am here, O Allah’s Apostle .” Then the Prophet said, “When honesty is lost, then wait for the Hour (Doomsday).” The Bedouin said, “How will that be lost?” The Prophet said, “When the power or authority comes in the hands of unfit persons, then wait for the Hour (Doomsday.)”

So Choose your leaders Wisely.

Religion is very easy dont overburden it on yourself – Hadith

Narrated Abu Huraira (Radi-Allahu ‘anhu):

The Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, “Religion is very easy and whoever overburdens himself in his religion will not be able to continue in that way. So you should not be extremists, but try to be near to perfection and receive the good tidings that you will be rewarded; and gain strength by worshipping in the mornings, the nights.” (See Fath-ul-Bari, Page 102, Vol 1).

Necessity of Controllig Nafs-e-Ammara for being closer to Allah

Necessity of Controllig Nafs-e-Ammara for being closer to Allah

NAFS: Three types of Nafs.

Nafs -e- Ammara,
Nafs -e- Lawama ,
Nafs-e-Mutmayenna.

Nafs-e-Ammara: It is very dirty, worst, and sinful. As such always try to provocate for doing sinful work. It does not repent after doing sin. It is uncultured, shameless and immodest.

Nafs-e-Lawama: It is a bit modest and pious. As such it can identify good and bad. If it does any wrong , then & then it repent for that and self reproach is created.

Nafs-e-Mutmayenna: This is educated and perfectly pious. It never does any wrong and sin. It becomes visible due to enlightening by luster of Allah. Until and unless the internal enemy (six inherent passions of man) is controlled, a man cannot become pious and achieve the Mohabbat (Love/Friendship) of Allah.

It is not possible to become favorite to Allah unless a man make his Nafs(Desires) free from bad habits including Excess drinking & Eating, Excess talking, Excess sleeping, Anger, Hot temper, Calling names and fighting/ animal behavior, Speaking ill of others( Gibat), Illegal sexual desire, Greed, Misery, Telling lie, Enmity, Envy, Proud ness, Hate etc. These are the companions of Nafs -e- Ammara. Following any˜Tarikat is essential for controlling these bad practices/ habits. Prophet Hazrat Mohammad (sm ) has said, Shariat is my Kawol (Basis), Tarikat is my Aamal (Practice) and Hakikat is my Haal. (Situation ). ( Al Hadis). NB: From this Hadis it is easily understood that practicing & following the rules-regulation of Shariat properly is called Tarikat. If we go into depth, we see that in Hadis-e-Kudsi Allah says: Al Insanu Sirri Wa Ana Sirrahu.- Mankind is my mystery and I am mysterious to mankind. Allah Rabbul Alamin also mentioned, Hidden knowledge is one of my mystery ,which I have bestowed in the Kalb of my obedient followers and nobody except aware about that mystery. So Tarikat is the process of establishing the relation between Almighty Allah Subhanahu Taala by discovering the mystery between Allah and his mankind. Huzur (sm) has said, “ Maan Arafa Nafsahu Fakad Arafa Rabbahu. To know the identity of Allah Rabbul Alamin , get the identity of yourself. Allah has said, Mankind is my mystery. So it is not easy to understand this mystery. Oh my Lord Allah! Please show me the truth correctly and give me capability to find out that. Which is not truth, please also show that and give me the strength to refrain from that.

THE LAST SERMON (KHUTBAH) OF THE PROPHETMUHAMMAD (SAW)

THE LAST SERMON (KHUTBAH) OF THE PROPHET
MUHAMMAD (SAW)

“O People, lend me an attentive ear, for I don’t know whether, after this year, I shall ever be amongst you again. Therefore listen to what I am saying to you carefully and take these words to those who could not be present here today.”

“O People, just as you regard this month, this day, this city as Sacred, so regard the life and property of every Muslim as a sacred trust. Return the goods entrusted to you to their rightful owners. Hurt no one so that no one may hurt you. Remember that you will indeed meet your Lord, and that He will indeed reckon your deeds. Allah has forbidden you to take usury (Interest), therefore all interest obligation shall henceforth be waived.” “Beware of Satan, for your safety of your religion. He has lost all hope that he will ever be able to lead you astray in big things, so beware of following him in small things.” “O People, it is true that you have certain rights with regard to your women, but they also have right over you. If they abide by your right then to them belongs the right to be fed and clothed in kindness. Do treat your women well and be kind to them for they are your partners and committed helpers. And it is your right that they do not make friends with any one of whom you do not approve, as well as never to commit adultery.” “O People, listen to me in earnest, worship Allah, say your five daily prayers (Salaah), fast during the month of Ramadaan, and give your wealth in Zakaat. Perform Hajj if you can afford to. You know that every Muslim is the brother of another Muslim. You are all equal. Nobody has superiority over other except by piety and good action.”

“Remember, one day you will appear before Allah and answer for your deeds.
So beware, do not astray from the path of righteousness after I am gone.” “O People, no prophet or apostle will come after me and no new faith will be born. Reason well, therefore, O People, and understand my words which I convey to you. I leave behind me two things, the Qur’an and my example, the Sunnah and if you follow these you will never go astray.” “All those who listen to me shall pass on my words to others and those to others again; and may the last ones understand my words better than those who listen to me directly. Be my witness oh Allah! that I have conveyed your message to your people.”

This Sermon Was Delivered On The Ninth Day Of Dhul Hijjah 10 A.H InTthe Uranah Valley Of Mount Arafat.
