General post :)

It is said that when the angel of death is taking the rooh (soul) out of the body whom passes is a painful experience.
They say that when the dead awake on Qayaamat, the effect of the rooh
being taken out will still be there.

Therefore, ALLAH has told us to
recite the Ayatul Kursi after any Farz salaat and it is stated that whoever recites this, their rooh will be taken out as you would take out a strand of hair from a pile of flour. How light would that feel, MashaAllah!

May Allah save us from any sort of pain and may He let us die with
Imaan in our hearts and save us from the azaab.

There is no word as beautiful as Allah.

No example as beautiful as Rasulallah (SAW),

No lesson as beautiful as Islam

No song as melodious as Azan.

No charity as meaningful as Zakat.

No encyclopaedia as perfect as Al Quran.

No prayer as perfect as Namaz.

No diet as perfect as fasting.

No journey as perfect as Hajj.

Let's realize that Islam is for ever beautiful and perfect, please forward this message
to get the sawaab of passing on knowledge.

Allahumma- inni- ala-Zikr-ika-wa Shuk-rika wa husni-ibad-atika.

Haul Imam Al-Haddad on 1&2 Nov 2008


Masjid Baitul Aman Kuala Lumpur and the Al-Hadad family are organising the Haul of the great Imam Abdallah Al-Haddad. “Haul” is the Arabic word for what is known as ‘anniversary commemoration’.

The Messenger of God, salallahu alaihi wasallam, prophesied that in every century Allah would raise up amongst his nation a man who would renew its religion. Imam ‘Abdallah al-Haddad was the renewer, or Mujaddid, of the 12th Islamic century. He was renowned, and deser vedly so, for the breadth of his knowledge and his manifest sanctity. The profundity of his influence on Muslims is reflected by the fact his books are still in print throughout the Islamic world. He was born in Tarim, in the hills of Hadramaut, one of the southerly regi ons of the Arabian peninsula, and grew up in an environment where the accent was upon piety, frugality, erudition, and an uncompromising thirst for gnosis (ma’rifa). His lineage is traced back to the Prophet, salallahu alaihi wasallam, through Imam al-Husayn. is organising a wisata or travel to Kuala Lumpur to participate in the Haul (see programme below).

What should you say when you hear the Azaan

1. Repeat what the Mu'aththin says, except for when he says:

Hayya 'alas-Salaah (hasten to the prayer) and Hayya 'alal-Falaah (hasten to salvation).

Here you should say:

Laa hawla wa laa quwwata 'illaa billaah.

There is no might and no power except by Allah. Reference: Al-Bukhari 1/152, Muslim 1/288.

2. Wa 'anaa 'ash-hadu 'an laa 'ilaaha 'illallaahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu wa 'anna Muhammadan 'abduhu wa Rasooluhu, radheetu billaahi Rabban, wa bi-Muhammadin Rasoolan wa bil'islaami deenan.

I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah alone, Who has no partner, and that Muhammad is His slave and His Messenger. I am pleased with Allah as my Lord, with Muhammad as my Messenger and with Islam as my religion.1 [To be recited in Arabic after the Mu'aththin's Tashahhud or the words of affirmation of Faith] 2 Reference: 1 Muslim 1/290. 2Ibn Khuzaymah 1/220.

3. Allaahumma Rabba haathihid-da 'watit-taammati wassalaatil-qaa'imati, 'aati Muhammadanil-waseelata walfadheelata, wab 'ath-hu maqaamam-mahmoodanil-lathee wa'adtahu, ['innaka laa tukhliful-mee'aad]

After replying to the call of Mu'aththin. you should recite in Arabic Allah's blessings on the Prophet.

O Allah, Lord of this perfect call and established prayer. Grant Muhammad the intercession and favor, and raise him to the honored station You have promised him, [verily You do not neglect promises]. Reference: Al-Bukhari 1/152, and the addition between brackets is from Al-Bayhaqi 1/410 with a good (Hasan) chain of narration. See 'Abdul-Azlz bin Baz's Tuhfatul-'Akhyar, pg. 38.

Between the call to prayer and the 'Iqamah, you should supplicate Allah for yourself. Invocation during this time is not rejected.
