Reciting Surah-e-Mulk protects one from the torment of the grave.

If  one recites Surah-e-Mulk or 7 times Surah-e-Qadr by the side of Marhoom’s grave, God-forbid if any punishment is being implemented therein, it is instantly ceased.

It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “A soorah from the Qur’aan containing thirty verses will intercede for a man so that he will be forgiven. It is the soorah Tabaarak Alathi bi yadihi’l-mulk [i.e., Soorat al-Mulk].”

Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 2891; Abu Dawood, 1400; Ibn Maajah, 3786.

Al-Tirmidhi said, this is a hasan hadeeth. It was classed as saheeh by Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah in Majmoo’ al-Fataawa, 22/277, and by Shaykh al-Albaani in Saheeh Ibn Maajah, 3053.

What is meant is that a person should read it every night, act in accordance with the rulings contained in it, and believe in the information mentioned in it.

It was narrated that ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Mas’ood said: Whoever reads Tabaarak allaahi bi yadihi’l-mulk [i.e., Soorat al-Mulk] every night, Allaah will protect him from the torment of the grave. At the time of the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) we used to call it al-maani’ah (that which protects). In the Book of Allaah it is a soorah which, whoever recites it every night has done very well.

Narrated by al-Nasaa’i, 6/179; classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Targheeb wa’l-Tarheeb, 1475.

what we expect from scholarily figures of sunnietes? tahrif in quran….

what we expect from scholarily figures of sunnietes?

By Syed Mohammad Masoom

The Holy Quran The word of Allah or the divine Book sent down upon his last apostles, namely,mohammad is a miraculois scripture in proof (burhan) of his prophethood.
 
All the great scholars of the two major islamic sects, viz., the sunnites and the shiites are  unanimously to hold that so far as the alteration is concerned the Quran is perfectly safe from such a satanic design and exibitions, ie is intact uptil now since it was collected at the hand of prophet under the divine guidence. So, there  is nothing forged and fabricated or missing from the Holy Quran left by Holy Preacher of Islam.
 
There are some kind of Tahrif we see : Tahrif in Qiraat, Tahrif in reading, Marks inserted for the division of verses and also the uinsertion of Marks(vowelpionts0 called “i”rab” in Arabic.
 
The muslim scholars have held unanimously that the Holy quran left by the Prophet(s.a.w), collected by him and copied by Ali (a.s) and by other companions of the prophet(s.a.w) had no Vowel pionts, no marks of Divisions of surah (chapters) into verses, No division of Holy Quran into parts(ajazah) so far as the interpretation of the Quran is concern perversions and alteration have definately taken place.
 
I am giving one  example of change of places of Quranic  verses in Holy quran, just to clarify my words ” great Muslim scholars of Quranic science e..g. Suyuti Fakhral razi have written that according the statements of companions of Propeht(s.a.w) so many verse of Meccan chapters were put in the medinite ones and vice vera. after the death of Holy Prophet(s.a.w) wanton alterations took place in respect to the arrangement of the Quranic verses also.
Ref: Tafsir al kabir of fakhruddin razi, pib from egypt vol 4 pg 159 and 540 vol 6 pg 26
 Second Hadith:
 While I was with Aisha, the mother of the Believers, a person from  Iraq came and asked, “What type of shroud is the best?” ‘Aisha said,    “May Allah be merciful to you! What does it matter?” He said, “O   mother of the Believers! Show me (the copy of) your Quran,” She said,  “Why?” He said, “In order to compile and arrange the Quran according    to it, for people recite it with its Surahs not in proper order.”    ‘Aisha said, “What does it matter which part of it you read first? (Be  informed) that the first thing that was revealed thereof was a Sura    from al-Mufassal, and in it was mentioned Paradise and the Fire. REf: Sahih al-Bukhari Hadith: 6.515

As a matter of fact, the Quran that we use which was compiled by the companions is not in the sequence that has been revealed. In fact, the Sunni scholars confirm that the first Chapter of Quran which was sent down to the Prophet (PBUH&HF) was Chapter al-Iqra’ (al-Alaq, Ch. 96).Sunni References: – al-Burhan, by al-Zarkashi, v1, p259,- al-Itqan, by al-Suyuti, v1, p202.- Fathul Bari, by Ibn Hajar al-Asqalani, v10, p417,- Irshad al-sari, by al-Qastalani, v7, p454

The completeness of Quran is so indisputable among Shia that the greatest scholar of Shia in Hadith, Abu Jafar Muhammad Ibn Ali Ibn al-Husain Ibn Babwayh, known as “Shaykh Saduq” (309/919-381/991), wrote:
“Our belief is that the Quran which Allah revealed to His Prophet  Muhammad is (the same as) the one between the two covers (daffatayn).  And it is the one which is in the hands of the people, and is not  greater in extent than that. The number of surahs as generally  accepted is one hundred and fourteen …And he who asserts that we say   that it is greater in extent than that, is a liar.”
Shi’i reference: Shi’ite Creed (al-I’tiqadat al-Imamiyyah), by Shaykh  Saduq, English version, p77.
Our belief is that the Quran which Allah revealed to His Prophet  Muhammad is (the same as) the one between the two covers (daffatayn) ;neigther it was more than what it is at present nor short of what the Prophet of Islam left behind. The numbers of its chapeter according to others are 114 , but we hold that “Wal duha” and alam Nashrah” ie chapter 93 and 94 are one chapetr , similarily ‘Alam tara Kaifa’ and ; Lilaf-i-Quraishin” is also one chapter ie Total number is 112 . Those who charge us to believe that the Quran was more than what it is now, are liers”..Ref: Shaykh  Saduq Risalatu Itiqadat bup: from iran pg 28
In tafseer Ala;ur Rahmain by Allama al jawad al balighi of al najaf said: The shia sects believes that Nothing is missing from Quran…
 
Ayatullah Khui Also Rejected the theory of Naksh” (ie Deletion abrogation of verses from the Quran). according to him each and every verse of the Quran whether it belongs to the category of ” Nasikh” (abrogative)  of to that of Mansukh(abrogated) is still preserved  and extant in the Quran, currently in the circulation. In Favour of His words Ayataullah Khui mentioned the following Quranic verses: “Ot is surely amighty book., falsehood shall not come to it from before or behind it; revelation of from the wise, the praised one. Ref: Holy quran Ha mim Ch 41:42 
 
Imam Muhammad Baqir (a.s), The fifth Imam of shietes as reported by ali bin ibrahim al Qummi said: The falsehood would neither enter from before on the Quran as happened is the case of torah and gospel,nor any other scripture will be sent down in future to invalidate the Quran.  
 
Professor Shaikh Mohammad Al madani who was dean of the faculty of theology is Al Azhar University of cairo –An outstanding elite of the sunniets has judicially remarked in this context : so far as the shiets are concerned God forbid us to hold that because of certain weak reports exisiting in their books, they hold the belief that the Quran suffers from deficiencies in its text. The reports as such exist in the books of Ahl e sunnat also and both these sects flately rejects their authenticity and they set forth strong arguements  to prove such repoprts false and weak. From among the shiah and zaidiah none holds that there is any shortage in the Quran has gone under vehement changes but it was confiscated by egyption government. so whether on the basis of those weak reports one should conclude that that the sunnites have disowned the purity of Quran.? or, because of the weak reports of suggesting addition and deletion of verses from Quran , transmitted, recorded or given place in books ,by such and such figures of the sunniets, they have adopted the belief that the quran is mutilated?
 
NO NEVER—The Reports of the same nature though exist in the books of the shias in the same as in our own books, but on behalf of the shia we must recognise the fact that they also do not believe in Tahrif.(of Quran) Ref: Risalatul Islam Vol 11 no.4 pag 282-283 pub from cairo egypt.
 
This we also expect from other sunni scholarly figures of the sunni as this will be a great service to the Quran and to the cause of Islam and Muslim unity.
 
Note: tahrif Means to replace a word with another one. Ref: Tafsir al wahidi of wahiduzanman of 112,

The 16-minute film titled “FITNA”

The hot topic for the last few months in Islamic world, is the release of 16-minute film — titled “Fitna” by Dutch politician Geert Wilders.

I just watched the controversial film Fitna on net ,which is a shocking film as it cited Qoran verses (misinterpreted) and displayed terror attacks such as the Sept. 11, 2001 and London bombing committed by those who claimed to represent Islam.

This is an anti-Koran film, which matches graphic images of terrorist attacks and death threats against Jews by Muslim extremists with misinterpreted verses of the Muslim holy book.

Mr. Wilders, a member of the Dutch Parliament and the leader of an anti-Islam political party, said his intention with the film was to warn the West about a religion he viewed as dangerous and intolerant and to stop what he called the Islamization of the Netherlands and other Western societies.

I do not know How long will the Muslims keep on nagging to the world about their sufferings? Our problem is that we , protest just to show the world what is wrong going on with us but rarely think ,how to stop all such things.

It is clear that Mr. Wilders, the leader of an anti-Islam political party fear about Islamization of the Netherlands and other Western societies. That is why he made a film to spoil image of Islam , holy Quran and Messenger of islam Muhammad (s.a.w) by misusing verses of Holy Quran and some anti humanity activities of few organizations and political leaders.

The question also comes in or mind Why do the Jews have so much influence over world’s opinion? Have they bought every western politician, Film makers, newspapers and TV channels?

The fact is The Jews don’t have a crowd of 140 billion across the globe like muslims.

In one of the interview Wilders said ‘I believe that our culture is far better than the Islamic culture,” When pressed on what he meant by “better,” Wilders replied, “Well, we have a separation of church and state, we treat women equally.”

They speak open lies and world believe otherwise we all know how the western world treat women?

Why we sit silent and our ulema also do not answer them and expose their lies?

This also reflects that our religion still has a lot of homeworks to do to convey the message that Islam is peace.

Do you not think!

It is time for the Muslims should become a united powerful political force through their economic power. It is time for the Muslims to learn from the Jews, how to fight for their cause and emerge a winner.

Let the Muslims too come out with their own films promoting peace. Let a writer pen down a story of an American soldier in Gulf interacting with Islamic values and returning US as a Muslim. Why not a story about an alcoholic westerner whose family is shattered into pieces and Islam brings them back together? A good emotional story revolving around a madarasa can also be a good way of showing the world the peaceful Islamic culture.

So brothers and sisters sink deeper into media and grab careers out of it presenting Islam in media is the best thing one can do today in the age of publicity. If you cant then sponsor some one who is willing to. Conduct writing workshops or sponsor them in your Tablighi organisations. Hire a professional journalist to train your participants. Boycott all Dutch Products 1.6 Billion Muslims could Slap Dutch Economy. Look what the Qur’aan has to say about it

” Help each other in Birr and taqwa but not in sins and transgressions ”

Now its time to join our hands together as Muslims and
Remember ,Allah Might Ask you on the Day of Judgment

What did you do ?

The Movie maker had misinterpreted vers 60 in Sura 8 and also ignored the
next vers number 61 which contains very important exception to the meaning.

See This Image Of Fitna film

And see what message the original vers is giving.

in the same way they misinterpreted other verses of holy Quran.

Those verses are :-

8 Al-Anfal (De Buit) 60
4 An-Nisa (De Vrouwen) 56
47 Muhammad (Mohammed) 4
4 An-Nisa (De Vrouwen) 89
8 Al-Anfal (De Buit) 39

The fact is in Holy Quran :THE DISBELIEVERS :(109) (al-kafirun)

Very clearly explained how to treat disbelievrs

In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

(Muhammad), tell the disbelievers, (109:1)

“I do not worship what you worship, (2)

nor do you worship what I worship (3)

I have not been worshipping what you worshipped, (4)

nor will you worship what I shall worship (5).

You follow your religion and I follow mine (6).

Islam is uncompromisingly a law of peace and a religion of mercy. Only he who is ignorant of its teachings, hostile to its system, or is arrogant enough not to accept clear evidence, will dispute this fact.
The word Islam is itself derived from the word peace (i.e. salaam). And Muslim is the best description of those who believe in this religion:

‘It is the religion of your father Abraham. It is He (Allah) Who has named you Muslims both before and in this (the Qur’an), that the Messenger be a witness over you and you be a witness over mankind!’

No religious law or social system has encouraged the establishment of peace in the same way that Islam has done, for Islam has ordered the practise of this great virtue through respect and self-restraint even at the most testing of times such as Hajj (pilgrimage). During this sacred time, a pilgrim is strictly prohibited from cutting his nails, shortening his hair, destroying a tree, killing an animal or harming anyone in any way, even if he shall find the killer of his father he is not permitted to hurt him at all:

WI request all those who are reading my this post , to see messages of Holy Quran and THINK, Why FILMA MAKER OF FITNA NEGLECTED THESE VERSES?

There is no compulsion in religion. Verily, the Right Path has become distinct from the wrong path.’(Surat-al-Baqarah (2), ayah 256)
But if they incline to peace, you also incline to it, and (put your) trust in Allah. Verily, He is the All-Hearer, the All-Knower.’

(Surat-al-Anfal (8), ayah 61)

If they (the unbelievers) propose peace, accept it and trust in God. God is All-hearing and All-knowing (8:61)

I would also like to add Beyond Fitna Movie here which is also an eye opener and expose lies of Fitna film.

The Iranian NGO named NGO of Islam and Christianity has made a Movie replying Fitna. You can download Beyond Fitna in these links:

QUESTIONS ABOUT MAHDI’S FEAR»

zeeshan.jpgBy Maulana Zeeshan Abidi
(Panel Ulema of  AQYouth)

With regards to Mahdi’s fear and occultation and in the light of what we have mentioned before, there remain a few questions which is worth mentioning:

First Question: Why Allah, the Powerful doesn’t hinder Hazrat’s enemies from killing him!?
answer: God has commanded the Creation of hindrance which is not incompatible with duty and responsibility i.e. the commandment for obedience, assistance and submissiveness and forbiddance from disobedience and enmity of Hazrat Mahdi. However not forming any hindrance between Mahdi and his enemies is because it is incompatible with duty and renders the reward and punishment as null and void. Rather, such a hindrance will give rise to mischief and this cannot be the consequence of God.

 Question: Why is Mahdi (A.S.) absent amongst the people and why has he isolated himself from them considering that his great fathers were present amongst the people!?
Reply: Mahdi’s very foundation is based on emerging with the sword and revolting for God’s sake but such was not so in the case of his great fathers. Presence of Mahdi would expose him to danger especially when it is well-known and famous that Hazrat is waiting for an opportunity. Also it is a well-known fact that whenever Mahdi passed away there was another to succeed him as against Mahdi who if killed there would be no one to succeed him.

 Question: I f Mahdi’s occultation is due to fear of his enemies, then why has he concealed himself from his friends!?
Answer: If there existed for Hazrat’s friends and companions a channel to meet and visit him then, as a rule it was certain for his whereabouts to be discovered.

 Question: Reply to the third question is true only if the entire Shias are successful in meeting Hazrat. However if such a meeting is possible for only a particular group amongst Imam’s friends, then his whereabout will not be discovered.
Answer: Any secret which becomes known to more than two will no longer remain a secret.

Question: Why didn’t Hazrat’s minor occultation continue in the very manner in which the special deputies used to serve him!?
Answer: The non-continuation of Hazrat’s minor occultation may have been for two reasons:
Firstly that deputyship from Imam’s side is especially the post of special deputyship is a very high and lofty position. Since a group amongst the power-seekers falsely claimed the position of deputyship during the last days of Hazrat’s occultation, the door of special deputyship was hence closed.
Secondly the special deputyship too at that time was kept secret and hidden and except for some specific people, none were aware of it. If the minor occultation had continued and the position of special deputyship would become known, Hazrat’s deputies too would have been exposed to danger.


«MAHDI’S MINOR AND MAJOR OCCULTATION»

For our Master, Mahdi – the Expected one, there has been two occultations: The minor occultation and the major occultation.
The minor occultation started from the time of Hazrat’s birth and continued till the end of the special deputyship which lasted for seventy-four years.

The major occultation commenced after the minor occultation and will continue as long as God Wills Hazrat to emerge and revolt with his might.

In the book of «Esbath-ul-Wasiyah», Ali-ibn-Hussein-ibn-Ali Masoudi says:
‘It is narrated that Imam Ali an-Naqi (A.S.) disappeared from the Shias’ views but for a small group of his special Shias. When the affairs of Imamate were entrusted to Imam Hassan Askari, he used to converse with his special circle of Shias and others from behind the curtain except when he was mounted and would travel towards the Kings house.
Imam Askari (A.S.) and his father were acting in this manner so as to prepare the ground for Hazrat Mahdi’s concealment. This was so that the Shias would become familiar with the matter of occultation and would not deny it and would become habituated with Imam’s absence and concealment.

Verily, right from the time of Amir-ul-Mumineen Ali (A.S.) till the period of Imam Ali an-Naqi (A.S.) and Imam Hassan Askari (A.S.) it was customary for the Shias to meet their Imam whenever they wished. If they were deprived of this bounty all at once then doubt and hesitation would have overtaken them. Rather the faith of some of them would have become shaky. Thus Imam Ali an-Naqi (A.S.) and Imam Askari (A.S.) adopted this path as mentioned by Masoudi so that the Shias would gradually and gradually become

 acquainted with Imam’s concealment.

Imam Ali an-Naqi (A.S.) and Imam Hassan Askari (A.S.) took up this excellent path for this very reason. Strict alertness of the rulers who were contemporary to the afore-mentioned two Imams confirm this matter. This resulted in fewer meetings and contacts with them especially so in the case of well-known Shii’tes.

The apparent glory and magnificience of the afore-said two Imams (A.S.) and the great number of servants and slaves and their greatness and eminence (which would naturally become the cause of fewer meetings of the common Shias and rather their special Shias except at fixed and special times) too confirms the matter of occultation.

Later on, the policy of Bani-Abbass changed with regards to the twelve Imams and their policy demanded respect and honour of the Imams and this path was first put into practice by Ma’mun Abbassid.

Those who cast a glance over history of Hazrat Ali-ibn-Musa ar-Ridha Imam Muhammad Taqi, Imam Ali an-Naqi and Imam Hassan Askari will realize the way of association of the Caliphs with Imams. This is because they believed in the greatness and magnificience of Imams (A.S.) and had kept at their disposal house, goods, feather, dress, servants, slaves and wealth for such motives which they had in mind. The main motive of the Caliphs, as per their own imagination was to receive more ease and attention when in the company of the the Imam especially so in the case of the afore-said two Imams.

The reason why Imam Ali an-Naqi concealed himself from the views of the Shias on much lesser occasions than Imam Hassan Askari (A.S.) was that there was to be two occultation for our master Mahdi – One was the minor occultation during which period the deputies and special representatives of Mahdi (A.S.) were having access to Hazrat until the time when the Shias became familiar with the absence and concealment of Imam (A.S.) and the period of major occultation started wherein the special deputyship was cut off and unlike the Shias who had the privilege of meeting Hazrat’s great fathers, none have the opportunity of meeting the Imam officially.
