The Countdown Begins!!!

The Countdown Begins!!!...Ramadhan's Last Ten Nights and Days

By: E Islam Team

In this blessed month of Ramadan, we have now come to the grand finale – the last ten days of Ramadan that are even regarded as the “cream” of Ramadan. In it is a night that Qur'an tells us is better than 1000 months (yes, months…not days!)

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

"There has come to you Ramadaan, a blessed month which Allah has enjoined you to fast, during which the gates of heaven are opened and the gates of Hell are closed, and the rebellious devils are chained up. In it there is a night which is better than a thousand months, and whoever is deprived of its goodness is indeed deprived." (Hadith Narrated by An-Nasaa’i, 2106; Ahmad, Sahih At-Targheeb, 999.)

So, in preparation for the grand finale, here is a checklist of some of the things that we can all do to make the remaining days of Ramadaan work to our advantage:

1) Get in High Gear for the Next few Nights and Days

Time is of the essence. Every moment counts. Whatever you need to do for the next ten days to make the most in `Ibadah, good deeds, reciting Qur'an, dhikr, making du`aa', etc., rewards are going to be multiplied. No one knew about the importance of these days more than the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) would strive hard in worship during the last ten nights of Ramadaan as he did not do at other times.(Hadith Muslim)

If we lose this opportunity, we have to wait another year, assuming we are still around and are in good health and shape to make use of it. Even if we are, we have the past years’ sins on our shoulders and life’s normal trials and tribulations to face the coming year. So, there is no better time to ask Allah to make all that easier than NOW.

2) Get a Copy of the Qur'an and Recite as Often as You Can

Not enough can be mentioned on the benefits and virtues of Qur'an. It is proven in the authentic Sunnah that the Qur'an will intercede for those who read it at night, as Ahmad (6626) narrated from ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

"Fasting and the Qur'an will intercede for a person on the Day of Resurrection. Fasting will say, ‘O Lord, I deprived him of his food and his desires during the day, so let me intercede for him.’ And the Qur'an will say: ‘I deprived him of his sleep at night so let me intercede for him.’ Then they will intercede." (Narrated by Ahmad; classed as sahih by al-Albani in Sahih al-Jami`, no. 3882.)

As is stated in the hadith in which the The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:"Whosoever reads a letter from the Book of Allah will receive a Hasanah (good deed) from it (i.e. his recitation), and the Hasanah (good deed) is multiplied by ten. I do not say that Alif-laam-meem is (considered as) a letter (in reward), rather Alif is one letter, laam is one letter, and meem is one letter." (Reported by At-Tirmidhi, Ad-Darami)

The Messenger of Allah( Blessings and Peace be upon him) said:"The best of you is he who learns the Quran and teaches it." (Hadith Reported by Al-Bukhari)

3) Get your Sins Forgiven

First the bad news –In Musnad Ahmad it is narrated that Thawbaan said: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

"A man is deprived of provision (Rizq) because of the sins that he commits." (Narrated by Ibn Majah, 4022, ).

And now for the good news –

It was narrated from Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

"Whoever spends the night of Laylat al-Qadr in Prayer out of faith and in the hope of reward, will be forgiven his previous sins."

4) What to Say on Laylat Al-Qadr

One of the best du`aa’s that can be recited on Laylat Al-Qadr is that which the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) taught ‘A’ishah (may Allah be pleased with her). It was narrated by At-Tirmidhi, who classed it as sahih, that ‘A’ishah said: I said: “O Messenger of Allah, If I know which night is Laylat Al-Qadr, what should I say?” He said:

"Say: Allahumma innaka ‘afuwwun tuhibb al-‘afwa fa`fu ‘anni (O Allah, You are All-Forgiving and You love forgiveness so forgive me)."

5) Get in the Class of the Pious People

Allah has described the pious as follows (interpretation of the meaning):

(They used to sleep but little by night (invoking their Lord (Allah) and praying, with fear and hope). (Adh-Dhariyat 51:17)

(And in the hours before dawn, they were (found) asking (Allah) for forgiveness,) (Adh-Dhariyat 51:18)

Allah's Messenger(saw) said:" There is in Paradise an Apartment, the exterior of which can be seen from the interior, and the interior of which can be seen from the exterior. Such apartments have been prepared for those who are Polite in their talk, Provide Food to the Needy, Fast frequently and observe the TAHAJJUD PRAYERS when people are sleep.”(Mishkhat Al-Masabih ; Hadith No. 1232)

 

 

 

6) Finally…

Think of all that you need to ask Allah for and ask Him now. If you haven’t before, this is the time to connect with Him and feel closer to Him. And when you do during these last ten nights and days of this Ramadaan, you would want to do this again and again– even after the month is over.

And finally, when you are in a state of Ibadah (Prayers and worship), please open your heart for others as well and please do remember your brothers and sisters who are in great difficulty all around the world in your prayers. Remember what The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:

"The supplication that gets the quickest answer is the one made by one Muslim for another in his absence."(Hadith-Reported by Abu Dawud and At-Tirmidhi)

 

 

You snooze…you loose! Cut off texting, tweeting and changing your profile status unless really necessary. So strive during these last ten days as if it would be your last chance to do so. A wise man once said…

 

“ I will pass this way but once so let me do whatever good I can NOW for I may NEVER pass this way again!”

 

 

May Allah Ta’la grants us the wisdom, courage and strength to reap the full benefits of this month…Ameen

සංහිදියාවට බාධා වුනොත් නව නිති පාර්ලිමේන්තුවට ඉදිරිපත් කරනවා

යම්කිසි ජන වර්ගයකට, ආගමකට විරුද්ධව ප්‍රචණ්ඩ ක්‍රියාවල යෙදෙන පිරිස, එමෙන්ම වෛරය පැතිර වීමට ක්‍රියා කරන අයට විරුද්ධව නීතිය අනුව පියවර ගැනීම සඳහා පොලිසියට උපදෙස් දීමට කැබිනට් මණ්ඩලය තීරණය කළා.

මෙම ක්‍රියාව අපේ ප්‍රතිපත්තිය යළිත් තහවුරු කිරීමක් පමණයි. මෛත්‍රීපාල සිරිසේන ජනාධිපතිතුමා 2015 ජනවාරි 8 වැනි දා දිවුරුම් දුන්නේ මෙරට ප්‍රධානියා ලෙස සංහිදියාව ස්ථාපිත කිරීමටයි. එමෙන්ම ජාතික එකඟතාවය ඇති කිරීමටයි. වසර 30 ක යුද්ධයක පැටලී සිටි අපට ඉන් පසුව මෙරට ජනතාව එකතු කර ඉදිරි ගමනක් යාමට තීරණය කර තිබෙනවා.

අප සිංහලයකු, බෞද්ධයකු වීම පිළිබඳව ආඩම්බරයි. එමෙන්ම ශ්‍රී ලාංකිකයකු වීම පිළිබඳවත් ආඩම්බරයි. ශ්‍රී ලාංකිකයකු ලෙස මා සෑම ආගමකටම ගරු කරනවා. එමෙන්ම සෑම සංස්කෘතියකටම ගරු කරනවා. වෙනත් සංස්කෘතීන්, වෙනත් ආගම් හෙළා දකිනවා නම් ඔහු සැබෑ ශ්‍රී ලාංකිකයකු වීමට හැකියාවක් නැහැ. යහපාලන රජය මෙරට සියලූම ශ්‍රී ලාංකිකයන්ට එක සමාන අයිතීන් සමඟ සාමයෙන් ජීවත් වීමට අවස්ථාව ලබා දෙනවා.
මුස්ලිම් ව්‍යාපාර සහ දේවස්ථාන කිහිපයකට පහර දීම නිසා ඇති වූ තත්ත්වය පිළිබඳව පුළුල් විමර්ශනයක් කිරීමට පොලිසියට බාර දී තිබෙනවා. ඒ ගැන ක්‍රියා කොට තත්වය සමතයකට පත් කරාවි.

ඕනෑම ආගමකට, ජන වර්ගයකට විරුද්ධව ක්‍රියා කරනවා නම්, ප්‍රචණ්ඩ ක්‍රියාවල යෙදෙනවා නම් ඔවුන් පිළිබඳව විභාග කොට අත්අඩංගුවට ගෙන අධිකරණයට ඉදිරිපත් කිරීමට කටයුතු කරනවා. ඒ කටයුතු පොලිසිය විසින් විභාග කරනවා. ඇතැම් අවස්ථාවල නීතිය ක්‍රියාත්මක කර තිබෙනවා. එම එක් කාරණයක්වත් අතහැර නොමැති බව මෙහිදී ප්‍රකාශ කළ යුතුයි.

එම නිසා පොලිසිය මෙන්ම අනෙකුත් අදාළ ආයතන සියල්ලකටම නීතිය සහ සාමය ආරක්‍ෂා කිරීම සඳහා දැනුම් දී තිබෙනවා. අවශ්‍ය නම් පාර්ලිමේන්තුවට ඉදිරිපත් කොට නව නීති සම්පාදනය කර ගැනීමට ද හැකියාව තිබෙනවා. අග්‍රාමාත්‍ය රනිල් වික්‍රමසිංහ මහතා විශේෂ ප්‍රකාශයක් සිදු කරමින් පැවසිය.

IMPORTANCE OF ZAKAH By E ISLAM TEAM

User Rating: / 1
PoorBest 

Zakah (alms) is one of the five pillars of Islam. Its importance can be realised from the fact that in 82 verses of the Qur'an Zakah is associated with prayer (Salah), such as:

“Establish regular prayer and give Zakah; and obey Allah and His Messenger.” Quran (33:33)

If social justice and compassion to fellow humans who are disadvantaged is one of the central themes in the message of Allah to humanity, then it is no wonder that Zakah, like prayer and fasting, was also enjoined upon the people of the past messengers:

And We made them (descendants of Abraham) leaders, guiding by Our command, and We sent them inspiration to do good deeds, to establish regular Prayers and to practise Zakah; and they constantly served Us” -Quran (21:73)

THE WISDOM OF GIVING ZAKAH

· It purifies your wealth as Allah Ta’ala says in the Qur'an: Take alms from their wealth in order to purify them and sanctify them with it and pray for them.” Quran (9:103)

It reminds Muslims of the fact that whatever wealth they may possess is due to the blessings of Allah and as such it is to be spent according to the His commands.

Zakat functions as a social security for all. Those who have enough money today pay for what they have. If they need money tomorrow, they will get what is necessary to help them live decently. Zakat payer pays his dues to Allah as an act of worship, a token of submission and an acknowledgment of gratitude. The receiver of Zakat receives it as a grant from Allah out of His bounty, a favor for which he is thankful to Allah.

Economically, Zakat is the best check against hoarding. Those who do not invest their wealth but prefer to save or hoard it would see their wealth dwindling year after year due to inflation etc. Zakah helps increase production and stimulates supply because it is a redistribution of income that enhances the demand by putting more real purchasing power in the hands of poor.

It keeps one away from sin and saves the giver from the moral ill arising from the love and greed of wealth.

· Through Zakah, the poor are cared for, these include widows, orphans, the disabled, the needy and the destitute.

Zakah is the right of the poor. Zakah is not considered a favour that is given to the poor by the rich. It is the right of the poor on the wealth of the rich. Allah says: ..(In their) wealth there is a known share for the beggars and the destitute”Quran (70:24-25)

Zakah, therefore, is unlike charity that is given to the needy voluntarily. Withholding Zakah is considered depriving the poor of their due share. Thus one who pays Zakah actually "purifies" his wealth by separating from it the portion that belongs to the poor.

VIRTUES OF ZAKAH

Allah says in the Quran: "The parable of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is that of a grain of corn. It grows seven ears and each ear has hundred grains. Allah increases manifold to whom He pleases."(Quran 2:261)

The Beloved Messenger of Allah (pbuh) is reported to have said about Zakah:

· Zakah is a (great and strong) bridge of Islam.

· If a man pays the Zakah due on his property, it causes its evil influence to vanish.

· Gains the pleasure of Allah.

· Increases wealth and protects from losses.

· Causes Allah's forgiveness and blessings.

· Protection from the wrath of Allah and from a bad death.

· A shelter on the Day of Judgment.

· Security from seventy misfortunes.

Alqamah Radhiallaho anho says that when our group of people visited Rasulullah Sallallaho alaihe wasallam he said to them, "Verily you can make your Islam perfect by your payment of the Zakaat due on your property".

Rasulullah Sallallaho alaihe wasallam said, "he who observes three things will taste the sweetness of Imaan (faith): One who worships Allah alone and believes (from his heart) that there is no one to be worshipped but Allah and one who pays the < i>Zakaat on his property, willingly, every year. In Zakaat on the animals, one should not give an aged animal or one suffering from itch or any other ailment, or an inferior one, but should give animals of average quali ty. Allah Ta'ala does not demand from you the best of your animals, nor does He command you to give animals of the worst quality".

Do I have to give Zakah?

Zakah is obligatory on an adult sane Muslim who has wealth that reaches or exceeds a certain level called the Nisab for a lunar year.(please contact your local Islamic Scholar about the exact amount of Nisab in your local currency). Unlike tax, however, Zakah is an act of worship for which one receives reward from Allah Ta’ala. Ignoring to pay Zakah, on the other hand, is a major sin.

How much do I have to give?

If you are in possession of money, gold, silver, stock in trade or shares that amount to more than the value of Nisab (at current market rates) then you are obliged to pay Zakah. What amounts are owed by you should be deducted from the capital amount before Zakah is calculated.

The rate of Zakah is 2.5%

Remember … "The upper hand is better than the lower hand (i.e. he who gives in charity is better than him who takes it).” (Hadith- Bukhari)
