recitation of durood

WHY RECITE DUROOD EXCESSIVELY IN TIMES OF DISTRESS?
Hazrat Mufti Muhammad Taqi Uthmāni Sahib حفظه الله said that Aarif Billāh Hazrat Dr Abdul Hayy Sahib رحمه الله advised that if anyone is in difficulty, he must frequently invoke blessings on Sayyidina Rasoolullah صلي الله عليه وسلم. Hazrat Aarifi رحمه الله explained the reason; he said that we learn from the Hadith that when anyone invokes blessings on our Noble Master صلي الله عليه وسلم, the angels convey them to him and submit to him the name of his Ummati who had invoked blessings. Now we know that it was the practice of Sayyidina Rasoolullah صلي الله عليه وسلم in his life that if anyone had given him a gift, he was sure to reciprocate. If we consider this aspect, we can safely conclude that it will not be possible that Sayyidina Rasoolullah صلي الله عليه وسلم receive the gift of Durood Shareef and not reciprocate. He صلي الله عليه وسلم will certainly respond. He صلي الله عليه وسلم will reciprocate by making a duaa for this individual; "O Allah! This Ummati who is invoking blessings on me is in difficulty and distress. O Allah! Remove his problem from him."

Thus Allah Ta'ala will relieve the difficulty of the one who is in distress. We further learn that whenever we are confronted by any problems, we should at once resort to Durood Shareef. This is a simple but potent prescription. May Allah Ta'ala grant us the tawfeeq to be excessive in Durood Shareef.

Surah Yusuf - Verse 15

Surah Yusuf, Verse 15:

[فَلَمَّا ذَهَبُواْ بِهِ وَأَجْمَعُواْ أَن يَجْعَلُوهُ فِى غَيَابَةِ الْجُبِّ وَأَوْحَيْنَآ إِلَيْهِ لَتُنَبِّئَنَّهُمْ بِأَمْرِهِمْ هَـذَا وَهُمْ لاَ يَشْعُرُونَ ]

{15. So, when they took him away and agreed to put him in the bottom of the well, and We revealed to him: "Indeed, you shall certainly inform them about this affair of theirs, while they do not perceive [your identity].”}

{and agreed to put him in the bottom of the well,) This part of the verse magnifies their crime, in that it mentions that they all agreed to throw him to the bottom of the well. This was their intent, yet when they took him from their father, they pretended otherwise, so that their father sends him with a good heart and feeling at ease and comfortable with his decision. It was reported that Ya`qub, peace be upon him, embraced Yusuf, kissed him and supplicated to Allah for him when he sent him with his brothers.

As-Suddi said that the time spent between pretending to be well-wishers and harming Yusuf was no longer than their straying far from their father's eyes. They then started abusing Yusuf by cursing him and beating him. When they reached the well, they tied him with a rope and lowered him down. When Yusuf would beg one of them, he would hit and curse him. When he tried to hold onto the sides of the well, they would strike his hand. They then cut the rope when he was only half the distance from the bottom of the well. He fell into the water and was submerged. However, he managed to climb onto a stone that was in the well and stand on it. Allah said next,

{and We revealed to him: "Indeed, you shall certainly inform them about this affair of theirs, while they do not perceive (your identity).’'}
Here Allah mentions His compassion and His relief that He sends in times of distress. Allah revealed to Yusuf in order to comfort his heart and strengthen his resolve, `Do not be saddened by what you have suffered. Surely, you will have a way out of this distress and a good end, for Allah will aid you against them and elevate your rank. Later on, you will remind them of what they did to you.'

Mufthi Menk

Somewhere, somewhat, somehow, we've lost the plot in this life. We've forgotten why we're here. We need to refocus before it's too late.


You've heard this countless times. Let go of the past. Yes, you must. Trust that when you reach your final point, only good awaits you!

It's good to know where you're going. We're all headed to the same final destination. But be kind & don't mistreat others along the way.

Time lost is time wasted. You'll never get it back. No amount of regret can change it. May the Almighty help us make best use of our time.

Surah Yusuf - Verse 23

Surah Yusuf, Verse 23:

وَرَاوَدَتْهُ الَّتِي هُوَ فِي بَيْتِهَا عَن نَّفْسِهِ وَغَلَّقَتِ الْأَبْوَابَ وَقَالَتْ هَيْتَ لَكَ ۚ قَالَ مَعَاذَ اللَّهِ ۖ إِنَّهُ رَبِّي أَحْسَنَ مَثْوَايَ ۖ إِنَّهُ لَا يُفْلِحُ الظَّالِمُونَ

{And she, in whose house he was, sought to seduce him. She closed the doors and said, "Come, you." He said, "[I seek] the refuge of Allah. Indeed, he is my master, who has made good my residence. Indeed, wrongdoers will not succeed.”}

Allah states that the wife of the `Aziz of Egypt, in whose house Yusuf resided, tried to seduce him! Yusuf was very handsome, so she beautified herself for him, closed the doors and called him, but he refused. Yusuf said to her, `your husband is my master who provided me with comfortable living and was kind to me, so I will never betray him by committing immoral sins with his wife.'
{Verily, the wrongdoers will never be successful.}

Surah Yusuf - Verse 22

Surah Yusuf, Verse 22:

وَلَمَّا بَلَغَ أَشُدَّهُ آتَيْنَاهُ حُكْمًا وَعِلْمًا ۚ وَكَذَٰلِكَ نَجْزِي الْمُحْسِنِينَ

{And when Yusuf reached his full strength, We gave him judgment and knowledge. And thus We reward the doers of good.}

{his full strength} - sound in mind and perfect in body,

{We gave him judgement and knowledge} which is the prophethood that Allah sent him with.

{thus We reward the doers of good} because Yusuf used to do good in the obedience of Allah the Exalted.

Surah Yusuf - Verse 13 to 14

Surah Yusuf, Verses 13-14:

[قَالَ إِنِّى لَيَحْزُنُنِى أَن تَذْهَبُواْ بِهِ وَأَخَافُ أَن يَأْكُلَهُ الذِّئْبُ وَأَنْتُمْ عَنْهُ غَـفِلُونَ - قَالُواْ لَئِنْ أَكَلَهُ الذِّئْبُ وَنَحْنُ عُصْبَةٌ إِنَّآ إِذَا لَّخَـسِرُونَ ]


{13. He (Ya`qub) said: "Truly, it saddens me that you should take him away. I fear lest a wolf should devour him, while you are heedless of him.’' 14. They said: "If a wolf devours him, while we are `Usbah (a clan), then surely, we are the losers.''}

Meaning, 'If a wolf should attack and devour him while we are all around him in a strong group, then indeed we are the losers and weak.'

It was hard on Ya’qub to be separated from Yusuf. This demonstrates the deep love that he had for his son, because he saw in Yusuf great goodness and exalted qualities.

Surah Yusuf - Verse 11 to 12

Surah Yusuf, Verses 11-12:

قَالُواْ يَـأَبَانَا مَا لَكَ لاَ تَأْمَنَّا عَلَى يُوسُفَ وَإِنَّا لَهُ لَنَـصِحُونَ - أَرْسِلْهُ مَعَنَا غَداً يَرْتَعْ وَيَلْعَبْ وَإِنَّا لَهُ لَحَـفِظُونَ

{11. They said: "O our father! Why do you not trust us with Yusuf though we are indeed his well-wishers’’ 12. "Send him with us tomorrow to enjoy himself and play, and indeed we will take care of him.’'}

Haraam food

The evil of a morsel of Haraam food.

Narrated by Hadhrat Abu Bakr RadiAllahu Anhu

Rasulullaah Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam said, “Jahannam is best suited to the body that is nourished on Haraam food.”
[Bayhaqi 5518]

It is not permissible to earn and eat from Haraam wealth. This causes the goodness and blessings of a household to be lost.

An engine works well when good fuel and oil is used.

In today's lifestyle everything seems to be commercialised.
It becomes so much important to ensure that everything we eat is halaal and tayyib. Which can be beneficial for our imaan and health.
If a haraam morsel enters our bellies than for 40 days our duas wont be accepted.

Haraam - completely avoid.
Halaal - happily accept.
Doubtful - refrain which is the best option. This is Taqwa.

Remember : Haraam consumption leads to sins.

May Allaah bless us with halaal rizq.

Meeting: Musalla on Musgrave

MUSALLA ON MUSGRAVE
1. IMPORTANT PUBLIC MEETING AT THE ANGLICAN CHURCH HALL TOMORROW, 31ST MARCH 2016 AT 7:00PM

Musallees are invited to attend a public meeting on 31st March 2016 at the ANGLICAN CHURCH HALL at 7:00pm.

Please note that the entrance is on Essenwood Road and Musgrave Road and there is sufficient parking inside.

The purpose of the meeting is to explain to the wider non-Muslim community what we intend to build and to basically showcase the Musjid. Alhumdulillah we have already received the support of political parties and Save Our Berea as well. Soon we will be sending out letters within a 100 metre radius of the site and it is therefore important, before we do that to engage with the community and to allay any fears they might have regarding our Musjid.

Kindly diarise and attend.

Surah Fatiha

A SHORT AND BEAUTIFUL EXPLANATION OF SURAH FATIHAH

Abu Hurairah radhiyallahu anhu reported: I heard Rasoolullahi sallalahu alaihi wasallam narrating a Hadith Qudsi in which Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'aala has said, "I have divided Surah Fatihah into two halves between Me and My slave, and my slave will receive what he asks. So, when His slave says Alhamdulillahi Rabbil Aalameen (Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the universe), Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala says "My slave has praised Me!".

And when His slave says Arrahmanirraheem (The Compassionate, the Merciful), Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala says "My slave has extolled Me!"

And when His slave says Maliki Yaumiddeen (Master of the Day of Judgement), Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala says "My slave has glorified Me! (or) entrusted Me!"

And when His slave says Iyyaka Na'budu wa iyyaka nasta'een (You alone do we worship and You alone do we seek for help), Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala says "This is between Me and My slave, so whatever he asks, it will be granted.

And when His slave says Ihdinas Siratal mustaqeem siraatal ladhina an'amta 'alaihim ghairil maghdhubi 'alaihim wa laddaallin (Guide us to the straight path, the path of those upon whom You have bestowed favours and not of those who have incurred Your wrath and nor of those who have gone astray), Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala says, "This (part of the Surah is exclusively) for My slave and my slave shall receive whatever he has asked for.

Dua for debts



Hazrat Ali Radi Allahu anhu says that if a person reads the following dua, his debts shall be wiped out, even if they are equivalent to a mountain.

اَللَّهُمَّ اكْفِنِىْ بِحَلاَ لِكَ عَنْ حَرَامِكَ وَاَغْنِنِىْ بِفَضْلِكَ عَمَّنْ سِوَاكَ

Al’laah hum’ma Akfini Bi Halaalika A’n Haraamika Aghnini Bi Fadhlika Am’man Siwaaka

“O Allaah, grant me sufficiency in your halaal (lawful) provision from the unlawful, And free me by your Grace from all besides You.”

(Mishkaat Shareef Pg.216 – Tirmizi Shareef Vol.1 Pg.195).

Mufthi Menk

As we mature, develop and travel, we also learn more about the cultures and ways of others. We learn to respect their right to follow what they wish and expect the same in return.

Racism is wrong. We totally reject it. It's not your skin colour but the colour of your thoughts and what lies in your heart that matter.

There's a fallacy that a "religious" person is hard, cold and harsh. Far from it. When you're close to the Almighty, He softens your heart!
If you're god-fearing, your heart should be softened not hardened towards others. If you find it otherwise, it's your ego and not your piety.

Mufthi Menk

When you put your happiness in someone else's hand, expect to be disappointed. Put it in the Hands of your Maker; He will never disappoint!

One of the reasons we're unhappy is we think too much. Keep your mind away from things that don't help you. Positive thoughts go a long way.

Whatever you do in life, always be mindful of your Creator. Ask of Him, seek help from Him. He will guide & protect you in all situations.

The biggest test Muslimah Mummies face



A house that never stays clean and children who have a mind of their own. What can you do to stay calm?
By Nourin Ibrahim
Abu Dhabi, UAE

You have finally finished the dishes and the kitchen looks tidy, but the surprise waiting for you in the living room raises your blood pressure so much that you lose control over yourself.
The floor you wiped just moments ago is littered with toys, biscuit pieces and juice spilled all over.

Being a mother, the biggest challenge I face is being patient at so many such incidents in everyday life and I believe it’s the same with the majority of us.

Let me admit: I FAIL in most of the cases!

For us, patience is extremely important since Allah has mentioned it several times in the Qur’an and the rewards for it really quite tempting.

وَاصْبِرُوا ۚ إِنَّ اللَّـهَ مَعَ الصَّابِرِينَ
and be patient. Indeed, Allah is with the patient.
(Qur’an 8:46)

إِلَّا الَّذِينَ صَبَرُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ أُولَـٰئِكَ لَهُم مَّغْفِرَةٌ وَأَجْرٌ كَبِيرٌ
Except for those who are patient and do righteous deeds; those will have forgiveness and great reward.
(Qur’an 11:11)

Many more such verses enhance the importance of patience.

As Muslimah Mummies, it is very clear to us that being patient is not just about controlling our anger in order to be a good mother, but firstly it is to obey Allah.
Here are some smart tactics to save yourself from regrets:

ߎȁAbsorb the fact that your kids are an amanah from Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). This will help you be extra cautious when you are dealing with them.

ߎȕUnderstand and keep reminding yourself that there are a whole lot of women doing whatever they can in order to conceive. Being a mother is a gift.

ߎȉIf we are able to live with and take care of our children then we should be more grateful because there are so many mothers who are separated from their little sweethearts for various reasons.

ߎȐPatiently taking care of little children 24*7 is no easy task. But we can try and with Allah’s help nothing is impossible. Don’t  stop making dua.

ߎȘ㘹وذ بالله من الشيطان الرجيم (I seek refuge with Allah from
the accursed Shaitaan) is the best dua to stop shaitaan from attacking you.

ߎȂbe what you want your child to be. They copy what they see.

ߎȍMost of us must have read the statement : “Excuse the mess, we are making memories”. Yes you are. Treasure the moments.

ߎȂBut also remember: Less mess less stress. To avoid mess create a play area for kids so that the toys stop finding other places to hide.

ߎȃChildren grow up so quickly and with each passing year they become more independent. The present phase of life is passing away so try to grab it in the most beautiful manner.

ߎȃChildren are children. Let them be. Tidying up is essential but don’t get obsessed to the extent that you restrict your children from being themselves.

ߎȗWhen you find it difficult to stay patient remind yourself of single mothers or a mother taking care of a disabled child. Our test of patience is nothing compared to theirs.

A final note:
وَالْمَلَائِكَةُ يَدْخُلُونَ عَلَيْهِم مِّن كُلِّ بَابٍ
سَلَامٌ عَلَيْكُم بِمَا صَبَرْتُمْ ۚ فَنِعْمَ عُقْبَى الدَّارِ
… And the angels will enter upon them from every gate, [saying],
“Peace be upon you for what you patiently endured. And excellent is the final home.”
(Qur’an 13:23-24)

What more do we want?

I pray that you and I be able to make an effort to be more patient. آمين

Mufthi Menk

It's easy to feel alone when times are really tough. You can't seem to share your sorrow. But know that no matter where you are, the Almighty knows.

During trials, we often find ourselves getting closer to the Almighty. So why do we distance ourselves from Him once He solves them for us?

When you feel alone because everyone has walked out on you & abandon you, know that the Almighty's always there. The Almighty will never forsake you.

By Mufti Ismail Menk

Saturday, 26 March 2016

Mufthi Menk

Don't measure others by your own standards. You'll end up disillusioned, disappointed and frustrated. Remember each one of us is different.

When someone is prejudiced against you, they'll go all out to prove they're right. Don't bother trying to change that. Just be yourself!

There's no need to pretend you're better than others & that you have to win everything. The Almighty knows our weakness. Be honest with Him.

By Mufti Ismail Menk

a simple dua

Al-'Abbās, the uncle of the Prophet , came to the Prophet and said,
“Ya Rasūlullāh, teach me a du'ā'.” .
The Prophet said:
“O my uncle, say:

Allāhumma inni asaluka al-'āfiyah
(O Allāh, I ask you for 'āfiyah).”

What is 'āfiyah?
'Āfiyah means “to save me from any afflictions.
To be healthy, you are in 'āfiyah.
To have enough money
To live, you are in 'āfiyah.
To have your children protected,
you are in 'āfiyah.
And if you are forgiven and not punished, you are in 'āfiyah.
'Āfiyah means
“O Allāh, protect me from any pain and suffering.”
This includes dunya and ākhirah.

Al-'Abbās thought about this for a while, and then he came back after a few days and said (paraphrased):
“Ya Rasūlullāh, this du'ā' seems a little short. I want something big.”
The Prophet said, “My dear uncle, ask Allāh for 'āfiyah for wallāhi, you cannot be given anything better than 'āfiyah.”
It is a simple du'ā'.
Sincerely mean what you say.
“O Allāh, I ask You to be saved from any distress, grief, hardship, harm. Don't test me.”
All of this is included in
“Allāhumma inni asaluka al-'āfiyah”

Release is forgiveness

I was walking with a bag load of shopping and feeling my fingers and arms ache! I had forgotten that I had the option of putting them down for a while, to let go of the pain! Renergise and smile! Similarly if we carry our hurts with us for long we have given that emotion or person power to snatch away our happiness! Release is forgiveness which is an act of self-love to put back the lost smile on your face!

story of the artist

The Artist

Once upon a time, a well-known painter was finishing his painting. It’s an incredibly beautiful painting to be shown at the Airport during the upcoming Hajj Season.

The painter wanted this painting to be a master piece. He worked on it for weeks on the top of a 24 story building. He was consumed by and excited with his own painting that he unconsciously took a few step backward while admiring the 2 x 8 meter painting. He didn’t look back when he walked backward. He kept on walking backward until it was a step away from the edge of the 24 story building. Just one more step backward and he could have fallen to his death.

A man saw what the painter was doing and was about to shout at him to warn him when he realized that his shout might surprise the painter and thus make him take that fatal one step backward and fall down. So the man took a brush and some paint and began to paint on the beautiful painting until it was completely damaged.

Upon realizing what happened to his painting, the painter got very angry and moved forward to hit the man. However, some other people who were also present at the vicinity held him and showed him his last position which almost made him fall.

MORAL: Sometimes we have painted our future with such beauty and dreamed of beautiful days we will spend with our loved one, but then Allah seemed to destroy our beautiful painting when Allah sees what danger lies ahead of us. Sometimes we are angry and annoyed by what Allah has done to us, but one thing we have to keep in our mind is that our Creator Allah is Most Wise an always keeps our best of interest in mind!

So when Allaah Subhaanahu wa Ta’ala , in His Infinite Wisdom, tests us with a situation that we think is difficult or takes away something that in our mind was good for us, we need to remember that perhaps it may not be so. Perhaps if we had continued in our way, it might have been harmful for us and whatever Allah decreed for us is actually better for us, for He is All-Wise and All-Knowing.

Allah says: “and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows but you do not know.” (Qur’an Surah Baqarah 2:216)

Mufthi Menk

Keep in mind that some things will never make sense, no matter how hard you try to figure it out. Let go, breathe deeply & leave it to Him.

He knows your problems more than you do. He knows what's best for you. So put your trust in Him, the All-Wise. He will take care of you.

When you're losing hope and on the brink of giving up, praise your Maker. Endure the test so He'll raise you. Nothing can bring you down.

Mufthi Menk

Do you lose hope because you think you've done too much wrong and the Almighty won't help? Do you remember He's the Most Merciful? Call out to Him now.

Do you at times wish you could just press the delete key and start over with your life? Well you can. That's what repentance is all about.

It's not healthy to keep dwelling on your past sins. Don't keep reminding yourself of how often you've messed up. Repent and look ahead.

Whatever you're experiencing now, never say, "If only I'd known better." Accept it as part of His Decree. Be patient, show humility, repent!
