Was Salaamu Alaikum By Khalid Baig ‘... For only then we truly live. Otherwise we only pretend to live….’ It happened at an international inter-faith conference. The organizers decided to end the conference with readings from the scriptures of major religions, done by followers of other religions. As it happened, an Arab Christian read a passage from the Qur’aan. He was a good reciter. Every one seemed to be moved by his heart-rending reading, including the reciter himself....

  • THE DESIGN OF THE WOODPECKER
    As we all know, woodpeckers build their nests by boring holes in tree trunks with their beaks. This may sound familiar to most people. But the point many people fail to examine is why woodpeckers suffer no brain haemorrhage when they beat a tattoo so vigorously with their heads. What the woodpecker does is in a way similar to a human being driving a nail into the wall with his head. If a man ventured to do something like that, he would probably undergo a brain shock followed by a brain haemorrhage. However, a woodpecker can peck a hard tree trunk 38-43 times in just two or three seconds and nothing happens to it.(1)   Nothing happens because the head structure of woodpeckers is ideally created for such a task. The skull of the woodpecker has a remarkable suspension system that absorbs the force of the blows. Its forehead and some skull...

  • Daily Anti-Depressant
    Many people are under the misconception that an increase in wealth will lead to an increase in happiness. However, this could not be further from the truth, as depression affects people across all income-brackets and from all walks of life. The severity of depression can perhaps be gauged by the fact that according to statistics, in South Africa alone, there are approximately twenty-three known suicides a day! Islam has given us a simple, free prescription that has no unwanted side effects and is incomparable in combating depression. In this regard, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) taught us that we should always look at those who are less fortunate than ourselves (Saheeh Muslim #7428). In doing so, we will realize how many bounties we enjoy for which we should be thankful and how fortunate we really are. Hence, we...

  • Why we need good friends..
    A well know Arabic saying advises, “Don’t talk about a person. Ask about his companions.” This simply means that if you want to enquire about a person — about his character, what are his habits, is he responsible, etc., then do not enquire specifically about him. Instead enquire about the company he keeps. If he keeps good company, insha-Allah he will be likewise a good and upright person. On the contrary if he remains in the company of people accustomed to sin and vice or people of low character and morals, he will generally be judged accordingly. Musk Seller Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) has emphasized upon us to always maintain good company. He is reported to have said: “A person follows the way of his friend, therefore beware of who you befriend!” (Sunan Abi Dawood #4833) In another hadeeth a good friend...

  • In the year 2119…
    In the year 2119, in just 100 years from now, every single reader of this piece will be underground, our bodies having become part of the soil. During that time, our fate with respect to paradise or hell would have been made known to us.   Meanwhile above the soil, our houses that were left behind would have become homes for others, our clothes would have become garments for others, our cars will be driven by others, and as for us, we will be – for the most part – never thought about by anyone again. How often do you think about your great grandfather? How often does your great grandmother cross your mind?   Our presence here on earth today, that presence that we make so much noise about and shed so many tears for, was preceded by countless generations before us and shall be followed by countless generations after us....

The parents of the Hafidh will be honored on the Day of Judgment

The Holy Quran is the sacred Word of Allah Most High.  It is a means of reformation for the entire mankind.  Its verses are nothing but guidance and a cure.  Allah Most High revealed the other heavenly books but did not undertake the responsibility of protecting them.  The responsibility to do so was assigned to the scholars of that nation as given in the following verse of Surah Maida:

…And the divines and the rabbis because they were assigned to safeguard the Book of Allah….Surah Maaida (5:44)

As the Holy Quran was revealed to the last and Final Prophet, Hadhrat Muhammad (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) and its rules and precepts are to remain until the end of time, Allah Most High undertook this responsibility Himself.  Almighty Allah says in the Holy Quran:

Verily, We alone have revealed this (the Holy Quran), and surely We alone will guard it. Surah Hijr (15:9)

 

The revered Mufti said that Allah Most High is the Ultimate Protector of the Holy Quran and in this world of means and reasons, Allah Most High has made the scholars the means of safeguarding the meanings of the Holy Quran and the Huffadh the means of protecting the words of the Holy Quran.  Almighty Allah is the Reciter of the Holy Quran.  It is but His Grace and Benevolence that His worshippers also recite the Holy Quran.

In this world, no one can use the title of the highest ruler of the land.  If anyone does so, it is considered a crime.  However, it is only by virtue of the relationship with Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) that we human beings are also granted blessings of the Sacred Attributes of the Lord Almighty and we are also known as Hafidh and Qari of the Holy Quran.

The revered Mufti said that the recitation of the Holy Quran is the best activity and the best form of worship.  The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said:  The best among you is the one who learns the Holy Quran and instructs others in it.

Allah Most High has granted His sacred Word to us.  The way to show our thankfulness and gratefulness for it is to fulfill its rights.  The Holy Quran has 4 rights which we have to fulfill:

The first one is that we should recite it.

The second one is that we should memorize it.

The third is that we should develop understanding of it.

The fourth is that we should act on its demands.

The revered Mufti said that it is fast becoming a trend that in the name of developing the understanding of the Holy Quran, in Taraweeh, etc. relatively less number of the verses of the Holy Quran is recited and the same time is spent in understanding of the Holy Quran. This way, we are unintentionally drawing ourselves away from the recitation of the Holy Quran.  The desire to understand the Holy Quran is indeed valuable, but we should not turn away from the recitation of the Holy Quran for its sake.

There is reward for only the recitation of the Holy Quran as well.  If we read any other book of the world without understanding it, we get bored in a matter of minutes.  The Holy Quran is the only book which even if it is read without understanding it, the interest of the recite does not waver.

It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be well pleased with him), he said that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said to me:  O Abu Hurairah!  Keep teaching the Holy Quran to people and keep learning it.  Because if death overtakes when engaged in this activity, then angels will come to visit your grave the way the Ka’aba is visited.

It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat ‘Ali (May Allah be well pleased with him) that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said:  Whoever reads the Holy Quran and believes that the things permitted by it are permitted and believes that the things prohibited by it are prohibited, then that person will enter Paradise and will intercede and take 10 such people of his family into Paradise for whom entry into hell was certain.

On the Day of Judgment such a crown will be placed on the heads of the parents of the memorizer of the Holy Quran that its radiance will rival the sun.  If any person resolved to memorize the Holy Quran and starts memorizing it and due to some reason does not memorize the entire Holy Quran and dies, then it is mentioned in Hadith that Allah Most High will appoint an angel for that person who will teach him the Holy Quran in the grave.  Then on the Day of Judgment that person will be resurrected as a Hafidh of the Holy Quran.
