Understanding the Prophet's (PBUH) Life --> [ Confused Dreams] PDF Print E-mail

Understanding the Prophet's Life SAW

One day, the Prophet (peace be upon him) was speaking to his companions when the sun, almost setting, touched the crests of the hill and he said, 'Relative to what has passed, there is as little time left in the world as there is in this day.' [Tirmidhi]

Let the person of intelligence seeking counsel for himself reflect upon this hadith. Let him know what can befall him in the time that remains for the world. Let him know that he is living with illusions and 'confused dreams', and that he may be selling everlasting happiness and everlasting grace for a paltry price. But if he seeks God and the abode of the next world, he will be given his full measure and much more. As the saying goes, 'Child of Adam, sell this world for the next and you will profit from them both. But do not sell the next world for this one, or you will lose them both.'

Compiled From:
 "The Invocation of God" - Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya

The Day of Ashura (10th Muharram) Monday November 3rd

Although the month of Muharram is a sacred month as a whole, the 10th of Muharram is the most sacred among all its days. The day is named 'Ashurah'. It is one of the most important and blessed days of Allah SWT in the Islamic calendar.

Fasting

Fasting

The Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu-Alayhi-Wasallam) has exhorted and encouraged his Ummah to fast on this day.

 He said: "This fast is a compensation for the (minor) sins of the past year." (Hadith:Muslim)

 "Observe the fast of Aashora and oppose the Jews. Fast a day before it or a day after." (Hadith:Baihaqi)

 Hence, it is important to either fast on the Ninth and the Tenth or the Tenth and the Eleventh of Muharram. To fast only on the day of Aashora is Makrooh (undesirable).

And remember when ye met, He showed them to you as few in your eyes, and He made you appear as contemptible in their eyes: that Allah might accomplish a matter already decided. And unto Allah are all matters returned. 8:44
