Wake up 4 Fajr Salaah!! Very nice Must read.

Wake up 4 Fajr Salaah


A man woke up early in order to Pray the F ajr P rayer in the masjid.
He got dressed, made his ablution and was on his way to the masjid.
On his way to the masjid, the man fell and his clothes got dirty.



He got up, brushed himself off, and headed home. At home,
H e changed H is C lothes, made his ablution, and was, again,
on his way to the masjid.




On his way to the masjid, H e F ell again and at the S ame S pot!
He, again, got up, brushed himself off and headed home.
At home he, once again, Changed His Clothes,
made his ablution and was on his way to the masjid.




On his way to the masjid, H e M et a M an H olding a L amp.
He asked the man of his identity and the man replied I S aw Y ou F all T wice


on your way to the masjid,
So IB rought a L amp so I can L ight Y our W ay.'
The first man thanked him profusively and the
two where on their way to the masjid.




Once at the masjid, the first man asked the man with
the lamp to come in and pray Fajr with him.
The second man refused.


The first man asked him a couple more times and,
again, the answer was the same.
The first man asked him why he did not wish to come in and pray.
He man replied
I am Shetan(devil/ evil)




The man was shocked at this reply.
Shetan went on to explain,
'I saw you on your way to the masjid
and it was I who made you fall. When you went home,
cleaned yourself and went back on your way to the masjid, 


Allah forgave all of your sins.



I made you fall a second time, and even that
did not encourage you to stay home,
but rather, you went back on your way to the masjid.




Because of that, Allah forgave all the sins
of the people of your household .




I was AFRAID if i made you fall one more time,
then Allah will forgive the sins of the people of your village


so I made sure that you reached the masjid safely..'


So do not let Shetan benefit from his actions.
Do not put off a good that you intended to do as
you never know how much reward
you might receive from the hardships you encounter
while trying to achieve that good.


If forwarding this message will bother you, or take
too much time from you, then don't do it, but you will not
get the reward of it, which is great. Imagine,
that when you forward this, you receive 240 good deeds,
and so will I for sending it to you! Wouldn't it be easy just to
Press Forward ' and receive this Reward ? 


May Allah (Subhana Ho Wataallah) grant us perfect Muslim Heart n we
all do Prayers with our Heart and Soul... Ameen

Your eyes…. And Lowering The Gaze

Written by: Dr. Muhammad El Saqqa Eid
Specialist and Master's degree holder of Ophthalmology
Member of the Egyptian Association of Ophthalmology
 Allah says in the Quran {Say to the believing men that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty: that will make for greater purity for them: And Allah is well acquainted with all that they do. And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty} (Surat Al Noor <24:30-31>)

And He also says:{Have We not given him two eyes, And a tongue and two lips,  And pointed out to him the two conspicuous ways?} (Surat Al Balad <90:8-10>)


Eyes are the precious pearls that no price can afford. Allah has called them "The beloved things", or "the dear things", as came in the Hadith narrated by Al Bukhari, Al Tarmizi, and Ibn Habaan, that the prophet sala Allah alyh w salam said:"Allah said, 'If I deprive my servant of his two beloved things (i.e., his eyes) and he remains patient, I will vouchsafe him the Paradise in compensation for them.'''


The creation of the eye is one of the greatest secrets of God's powers, and an evidence thereto. Despite their small size in comparison with the whole organs around them, their scope of vision encompasses the whole wide universe including the sky, the earth, the sea, and all creatures.
The sense of sight comes in second in importance after the sense of hearing, as God says in the Quran in this concern what means :{Verily We created Man from a drop of mingled sperm, in order to try him: So We gave him (the gifts), of Hearing and Sight} (Surat Al Insan <076.002 >).

The sight is the mirror or a reflection of the body and its tool of distinction. It is the window though which we have see the surrounding world, and by which we can probe shapes, sizes and colors. The sight is man's means of identifying God's creatures and contemplating them. Allah says <<Say: "Travel through the earth and see how Allah did originate creation; so will Allah produce a later creation: for Allah has power over all things>> (Surat Al Ankabout <29:20>>).


And, as we have already said, because the eyes are the most precious things that we have, we should take good care of them and protect them against any potential and possible harm. 

And among the many things that should help us protect our eyes and preserve their health and strength, is refraining from using them in what Allah forbids, because they are one of Allah's several bounties upon us. One of the acts that tire the eyes is watching pornographic films. Allah says in His Holy Book in this concern what means {surely the hearing and the sight and the heart, all of these, shall be questioned about that} (Surat Al Israa < 17:36>). Therefore, a Muslim should divert his/her senses from what displeases Allah, and should not consume them in what is not useful. Letting the gaze roam freely at what arouses the desire and causes fitah (temptation) contradicts completely with the healthy fitrah (innate nature of human) that Allah has given us.
Al Tabarany and Hakim reported from Abdu Allah Ibn Masoad, May Allah be pleased with him that he said: The prophet of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) reported from Allah Almighty that He said: "The glance is a poisoned arrow of shaytaan (Satan). Whoever lowers his gaze for Allah, He will bestow upon him a refreshing sweetness, which he will find in his heart on the day he meets Him." 
Lowering the gaze and its health benefits

The question is: Does lowering the gaze have any benefits to the human health? Scientific research and studies proved that repeated desirous looking at the opposite sex, and the ensuing need to fulfill the suppressed and unfulfilled desires, lead to many problems as serious as productive system diseases, such as the cognition of prostate, the sexual inability, or total infertility.

Some social studies have also proved that, in western societies, not lowering the gaze leads to depression and other psychological disorders. Such studies also indicate that moral disintegration and sexual  promiscuity in those societies are some of the results of the inexistence of a religious doctrine or ethical and moral restrictions that regulate such a noble sense and channel it into what conforms to the human physical and psychological health. 

The sense of sight is absolutely the strongest of the senses as far as responding to sexual excitement is concerned. Using this sense unconsciously and indiscriminately in looking at what arouses the desires simply means that its owner is wasting it unknowingly, and consequently is wasting his/her own psychological balance in vain and in no return except for an illusion of enjoyment and pleasure. The best remedy for the desirous looking at the opposite sex is to remember that Allah is always there seeing us all the time, and is watching over our deeds.Remind yourself that Allah sees you but you can't see Him, so where on earth could you be able to commit  a sin without being caught? Where would such a place be?. Also remind yourself of Allah's (thawab) forgiveness and reward for those who lower their gaze in fear and obedience of Him, as the prophet (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) said, as narrated by Ahmad and Al Tabarany, <<Whoever( Muslim) looks at the beauties of a woman, then lowers his gaze, Allah will reward him with an act of worship that he feels its sweetness in his heart>>.

An anonymous from one of the coastal cities says "When I was young, my only pastime was to hang out with my friends in the streets and on the beach to look at  beautiful women and girls and harass them. It used to give me great pleasure at first, then, over time, it turned to be something like addiction. I started to fall back in my studies, and the pictures of the girls and women I looked at, would stick to my mind and never left me  when I was awake nor when I was asleep".
"And they came to me in my dreams. I started to live a strange life; a mixture of reality and dreams. Unlike all my peers , I failed to form any successful relation with any of my female colleagues.. My spirits were so low, and I started to go to psychiatrists, and to take sedatives, until someone advised me to get married, Which I did. I thought, like everyone did, that, with marriage, my problem would come to an end, and that my suppressed desires would be vented out naturally. Easier said! I realized that I suffered from sexual frigidity  to a degree that I couldn’t imagine. Life turned  dark in my eyes and I cried every night like a child".

"Day after day, and as I started to pray and read Quran regularly, peace returned to my soul. One day, I read that verse from surat Al Noor, in which God says what means  (Say to the believing men that they should lower their gaze), and it was such a great day in my life. I became sure that this Book (The Quran) can not be the words of anyone but the Creator of this universe. I have loved Allah so much since that day, and loved His Book too. That Book ,whose letters and words touches every part of the human soul, and guide it to the light, purity and righteousness. And after obeying Allah, I recovered and came back to my previous normal state ".

HIjab for both men and woman :)


Bismillah Ir Rahman Ir Raheem
Asalamo Alaikom wa Rahmatullah dear brothers and sisters :)
HIjab for both men and woman :) Some muslims and non Muslims when hear the word Hijab , think only it is reffered to Muslim woman only , Well Hijab means viel, Parda, Curtain , and it is for both man and woman!! and It was in All other Religions before Islam and we will not get into that or give reference from other Religoins because we have a perfect Religion and a Miraculous Holy Quran , and Miraculous Ahadeeth of our beloved Prophet peace be upon him to prove!

Almighty Allah swt says in the Holy Quran

۞ يَا بَنِي آدَمَ خُذُوا زِينَتَكُمْ عِنْدَ كُلِّ مَسْجِدٍ وَكُلُوا وَاشْرَبُوا وَلَا تُسْرِفُوا ۚ إِنَّهُ لَا يُحِبُّ الْمُسْرِفِينَ
O Children of Adam! Take your adornment (by wearing your clean clothes), while praying and going round (the Tawâf of ) the Ka'bah, and eat and drink but waste not by extravagance, certainly He (Allâh) likes not Al-Musrifûn (those who waste by extravagance).قُلْ مَنْ حَرَّمَ زِينَةَ اللَّهِ الَّتِي أَخْرَجَ لِعِبَادِهِ وَالطَّيِّبَاتِ مِنَ الرِّزْقِ ۚ قُلْ هِيَ لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا فِي الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا خَالِصَةً يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ ۗ كَذَٰلِكَ نُفَصِّلُ الْآيَاتِ لِقَوْمٍ يَعْلَمُونَ
Say (O Muhammad SAW): "Who has forbidden the adornment with clothes given by Allâh, which He has produced for His slaves, and At-Taiyyibât [all kinds of Halâl (lawful) things] of food?" Say: "They are, in the life of this world, for those who believe, (and) exclusively for them (believers) on the Day of Resurrection (the disbelievers will not share them)." Thus We explain the Ayât (Islâmic laws) in detail for people who have knowledge.[7:31-32]


in another verses Almighty Allah swt says:

يَا بَنِي آدَمَ قَدْ أَنْزَلْنَا عَلَيْكُمْ لِبَاسًا يُوَارِي سَوْآتِكُمْ وَرِيشًا ۖ وَلِبَاسُ التَّقْوَىٰ ذَٰلِكَ خَيْرٌ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ مِنْ آيَاتِ اللَّهِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَذَّكَّرُونَ
O Children of Adam! We have bestowed raiment upon you to cover yourselves (screen your private parts) and as an adornment, and the raiment of righteousness, that is better. Such are among the Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allâh, that they may remember (i.e. leave falsehood and follow truth).
27. يَا بَنِي آدَمَ لَا يَفْتِنَنَّكُمُ الشَّيْطَانُ كَمَا أَخْرَجَ أَبَوَيْكُمْ مِنَ الْجَنَّةِ يَنْزِعُ عَنْهُمَا لِبَاسَهُمَا لِيُرِيَهُمَا سَوْآتِهِمَا ۗ إِنَّهُ يَرَاكُمْ هُوَ وَقَبِيلُهُ مِنْ حَيْثُ لَا تَرَوْنَهُمْ ۗ إِنَّا جَعَلْنَا الشَّيَاطِينَ أَوْلِيَاءَ لِلَّذِينَ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ
O Children of Adam! Let not Shaitân (Satan) deceive you, as he got your parents [Adam and Hawwa (Eve)] out of Paradise, stripping them of their raiments, to show them their private parts. Verily, he and Qabîluhu (his soldiers from the jinn or his tribe) see you from where you cannot see them. Verily, We made the Shayâtin (devils) Auliyâ' (protectors and helpers) for those who believe not.[7:26-27]

and some of Ahadeeth of the Mercy to Mankind Prophet Mohammad peace be upon him in Virtue of Hijab for Men:)

Mohammad Jahsh (R.A) narrated in this beautiful hadith that , "The Messenger of Allah, upon whom be peace, passed by Ma'mar (R.A) while his thighs were uncovered. He said, to him, 'O Ma'mar, cover your thighs, for they are (part of the) 'aurah." This is related by Ahmad, al-Hakim and in another beautiful hadith narrated by Jurhad, that :"The Messenger of Allah Sal Allahu Alaihi Wasalam passed by me when the cloak I was wearing did not cover my thigh. He Sal Allahu Alaihi Wasalam said, :'Cover your thigh, for it (is part of the) 'aurah." This is related by Ahmad, Abu Dawud and at-Tirmidhi, who called it hassan.

so in conclusion the thighs of men are part of the aura (Private part/shame/ornament) for men and it should be a man's intentions to keep it covered.

Almighty Allah swt guide us to the right path of Islam and to take heed before we are destroyed not knowing as our appointed term finishes on earth and we would be taken by surprise.

as Almighty Allah swt says in the Holy Quran:وَلِكُلِّ أُمَّةٍ أَجَلٌ ۖ فَإِذَا جَاءَ أَجَلُهُمْ لَا يَسْتَأْخِرُونَ سَاعَةً ۖ وَلَا يَسْتَقْدِمُونَ
And every nation has its appointed term; when their term comes, neither can they delay it nor can they advance it an hour (or a moment).[7:34]



Asalamo Alaikom wa Rahmatullah :)

Methods of Remembering Allah


http://www.readingislam.com/servlet/Satellite?c=Article_C&cid=1229319089251&pagename=Zone-English-Discover_Islam/DIELayout

Methods of Remembering Allah *By Khurram Murad




This series is a collection of inspirational advice in an attempt to set out the goal of the believer: Paradise, and the way to reach that ultimate goal. 
How can you remember Allah throughout the normal course of your day without withdrawing from the routine of your daily worldly life?

How can you ensure that your personal life, family life, professional life and other activities all continue in full swing, and yet, at the same time, ensure that your life as a whole - every moment of it - is permeated with remembrance of Allah?



Such an all-pervading remembrance can be an onerous task, but one you can accomplish - with some ease. Let me remind you of four states of consciousness that you must strive to develop by remembering certain things, absorbing them and reminding yourself of them often.



1- Say to yourself: I am in Allah's presence; He is watching me.


If ever you are alone, He is the second and that if you are two, He is the third. He is with you wherever you are. He is nearer to you than your jugular vein.



He is watching everything that you do and hearing everything that you say. He is ever present and His knowledge is all encompassing. Remind yourself of this as often as you can, and throughout the day - every time you begin a new task, and every time you speak.



Indeed, your aim should be to impress this on your heart in such a way that it ultimately becomes your very breath. When the Prophet was asked by a Companion about the best method of purifying himself, he replied: 'You should always remember that Allah is with you wherever you are.' (At-Tirmidhi)



2- Say to yourself. Everything I have has been given to me by Allah.


All that there is - surrounding you, on you and in you - comes from Allah alone. There is none that creates or gives anything but Allah. Therefore, reflect upon all the blessings that He has created you with and be thankful to Him.



In all the sayings that the Prophet has taught  us to remember Allah with, gratefulness to Allah is a constant theme. Many of these sayings are simple to learn, and indeed, it was the most simple of his sayings that he used most frequently.



When the Prophet rose in the morning, he would say Alhamdulillah (Thanks to Allah)

whenever he ate or drank he would say Alhamdulillah; and even when he relieved himself he would give thanks to Allah.



Learn as many of the sayings as you can, and throughout the day, as you witness all that Allah has blessed you with, punctuate your day with these sayings.

If ever you appear to be short of things to be thankful for, recall the hadith of the Prophet: 'There are 360 joints in the body and for each joint you must give a sadaqa (thanks or charity) each day.' ( Al-Bukhari)



You must give charity for each one of them because without anyone of them you will be incomplete and handicapped. You must do this on a daily basis for should anyone of them become damaged one day, you will similarly become incapacitated.



Additionally, you may remind yourself that, as we now know from our knowledge of human physiology, your heart beats 72 times a minute. Every time it beats, it does so with the permission of Allah.



The moment He withdraws that permission, the heart will stop beating and your life will certainly come to an end. If you feel that there is nothing else to thank Allah for, then thank Him for the life that He has given you - for, so long as there is life, there is hope.



3- Say to yourself: Nothing in this world can happen without His permission.


Everything lies in the hands of Allah. No harm can befall you and no benefit can reach you except as Allah ordains. God says in the Quran what means,



{If God should touch you with miifortune, none can remove it but He; and if He should touch you with good fortune, He has power over all things. He alone holds sway over His creatures; He is the All- Wise, the All-Aware.} (Al-An`am 6:17-18)



The Prophet Muhammad would supplicate to Allah after each Prayer:



O Allah, whatever You want to give me, no one can stop it from coming to me and whatever You want to prevent from coming to me, nobody can give to me. (Al-Bukhari)



Prayer after Prayer, you should recite these beautiful words.



And beyond that, remind yourself as much as you can and throughout the day, especially as you expect something to happen, or not to happen, that everything happens only as He commands, and by His permission.



4-  Say to yourself: I am going to return to Allah one day and that day could be today.


You do not know when you will leave this world. It may be that the coming morning is your last morning, or perhaps the coming evening is your last evening.



Indeed, it may be that this hour is your last hour, or even, that this moment is your last moment. Such an uncertainty does not, of course, justify a complete withdrawal from this life so as to prepare for the next in some monastic fashion.



It is important, however, that you are always conscious of this uncertainty, to the extent that it motivates you to spend every moment of your remaining life seriously, considering it as a gift from Allah and spending the resources He has blessed you with - time, ability and energy as He has advised. Then, and only then, will your life have achieved what is required of it, and your return will achieve what is required of it.



To help you attain this state of consciousness, recall and reflect upon the following Quranic verse as much as you can and throughout the day



{…Froom Allah we came and to Him we shall return.} (Al-Baqarah 2:156)



These are the four states of consciousness that can help us achieve a life completely devoted to the remembrance of Allah.



To try to reach these four states simultaneously, and with sincerity, can only purify you. To try in a determined fashion to reach these four states will lead you inevitably to Paradise.

The brushing of the teeth

Our beloved Prophet was also big on cleaning the teeth by the "Siwak":
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas: "I stayed overnight in the house of my aunt Maimuna. Allah's Apostle talked with his wife for a while and then went to bed. When it was the last third of the night, he got up and looked towards the sky and said: "Verily! In the creation of the Heavens and the Earth and in the alteration of night and day, there are indeed signs for men of understanding." (3.190) Then he stood up, performed ablution, brushed his teeth with a Siwak, and then prayed eleven Rakat. Then Bilal pronounced the Adhan (i.e. call for the Fajr prayer). The Prophet then offered two Rakat (Sunna) prayer and went out (to the Mosque) and offered the (compulsory congregational) Fajr prayer.  (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Volume 6, Book 60, Number 93)"


Narrated Anas:  "Allah's Apostle I said, 'I have told you repeatedly to (use) the Siwak. (The Prophet put emphasis on the use of the Siwak.)   (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Friday Prayer, Volume 2, Book 13, Number 13)" 

Narrated Hudhaifa:  "When the Prophet (p.b.u.h) got up at night (for the night prayer), he used to clean his mouth.  (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Friday Prayer, Volume 2, Book 13, Number 14)" 
Narrated Abu Huraira:  "Allah's Apostle said, 'If I had not found it hard for my followers or the people, I would have ordered them to clean their teeth with Siwak for every prayer.'  (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Friday Prayer, Volume 2, Book 13, Number 12)"   


Narrated Ibn 'Abbas: "Once I stayed overnight at the house of (my aunt ) Maimuna while the Prophet was with her, to see how was the night prayer of Allah s Apostle Allah's Apostle talked to his wife for a while and then slept. When it was the last third of the night (or part of it), the Prophet got up and looked towards the sky and recited the Verse:-- 'Verily! In the creation of the Heavens and the Earth....there are indeed signs for the men of understanding.' (3.190)  Then He got up and performed the ablution, brushed his teeth and offered eleven Rakat. Then Bilal pronounced the Adhan whereupon the Prophet offered a two-Rak'at (Sunna) prayer and went out to lead the people in Fajr (morning compulsory congregational prayer.  (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 93, Number 544)"


As we clearly see above, our Prophet peace be upon him constantly cleaned his teeth and mouth by using the Siwak. A siwak is a piece of small wood that is approximately as thick as a thumb and as tall as double the height of an index finger.  It's tip is vertically fine-sliced, which means it has wood teeth or hair that is similar to the hair of a tooth brush today, except they are a little thicker.

Obviously tooth paste and tooth brushes didn't exist 1400 years ago.  The siwak with rinsing the mouth was the best and most effective mean to brush off the bad smell and bacteria from the teeth and the tongue, as well as massaging the gums and squeezing out any bad blood from them that may cause tooth aches.
Notice how Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him was very sensitive about not having a bad smell whether from his body or mouth.  Notice also how he was big on keeping the teeth and gums clean and healthy.

Jumu'ah Prayers: Here we come!


Allah (SWT) says in the Glorious Qur'an:

“O you who believe! When the call is proclaimed for the Salat (prayer) on Friday (i.e. Jumuah prayers), come to the remembrance of Allah and leave off business (and every other thing); That is better for you if you did but know!”
[Qur’an 62:9]

WASHING AWAY THE SINS

Narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The five daily prayers, and from one Jumu’ah to the next, are an expiation for whatever sins come in between, so long as one does not commit any major sin.”
[Sahih Muslim, 233]

It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever does ghusl then comes to Jumu’ah, and prays as much as Allaah decrees for him, then listens attentively until the khutbah is over, then prays with him (the imam), will be forgiven for (his sins) between that and the next Jumu’ah and three more days.”
[Sahih Muslim, 857]

GOING EARLY FOR FRIDAY PRAYERS

Narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever does ghusl on Friday like ghusl for janaabah, then goes to the prayer (in the first hour, i.e., early), it is as if he sacrificed a camel. Whoever goes in the second hour, it is as if he sacrificed a cow; whoever goes in the third hour, it is as if he sacrificed a horned ram; whoever goes in the fourth hour, it is as if he sacrificed a hen; and whoever goes in the fifth hour it is as if he offered an egg. When the imam comes out, the angels come to listen to the khutbah.”
[Sahih Bukhaari, 814 and Sahih Muslim, 850]

WALKING TO THE MASJID ON FRIDAY

It was narrated from Aws ibn Aws al-Thaqafi that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever does ghusl on Friday and causes (his wife) to do ghusl, and sets out early, and comes close to the imam and listens and keeps quiet, for every step he takes he will have the reward of fasting and praying qiyaam (tahajjud prayer) for one year.”
[Sahih al-Tirmidhi, 410]

HOW TO PREPARE FOR FRIDAY PRAYERS?


1 . A good Muslim starts preparing from Thursday evening in anticipation of the Friday prayers. The most unfortunate person will be he who does not even know as to when Friday will fall, so much so that he will ask the people in the morning as to which day this is.

2. Getting out ones nicest, cleanest clothes and keeping them ready.

3. If one does not have any perfume in his house, then if possible, he should get some and keep it ready so that he will not get distracted with such things on Friday.

4 . On the day of Jumu'ah, ghusl (bath) should be made. Clipping the nails and using miswak are also some things that are highly recommended.

5 . After making ghusl, a person should wear the best clothing that he possesses, and if possible, he should also apply perfume.

6 . One should try and go very early to the masjid, as the merits for doing so are great in the sight of Allah!

7 . There is a lot of reward in reciting Surah Al-Kahf (Chapter 18 of the Qur’an) on Fridays; its noor (light/wisdom) will guide you from one Friday to the next.

8 . There is more reward in reciting 'durood' on Fridays than on any other day.

Having read the above, can a Muslim even think of depriving himself of the merits & rewards associated with this fard responsibility? We ask Allah (SWT) to forgive our sins, to always keep us firm on the rightly guided path and to make us of those with whom He is greatly pleased!

Thanks for reading; Jazzakum'Allahu khairan!

Good manners and good character In Islam!

Islam is a beautiful religion, full of wisdom and harmony. If this wonderful religion is followed properly then a typical Muslim would only be a great example to follow.


Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Amr: "The Prophet never used bad language neither a 'Fahish nor a Mutafahish. He used to say 'The best amongst you are those who have the best manners and character.' (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Virtues and Merits of the Prophet (peace be upon him) and his Companions, Volume 4, Book 56, Number 759)"


Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Amr: "The Prophet never used bad language neither a "Fahish nor a Mutafahish. He used to say "The best amongst you are those who have the best manners and character." (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Virtues and Merits of the Prophet (pbuh) and his Companions, Volume 4, Book 56, Number 759)"


Narrated Masruq: "Abdullah bin 'Amr mentioned Allah's Apostle saying that he was neither a Fahish nor a Mutafahish. Abdullah bin 'Amr added, Allah's Apostle said, 'The best among you are those who have the best manners and character.' (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Good Manners and Form (Al-Adab), Volume 8, Book 73, Number 56)"


Narrated Masruq: "We were sitting with 'Abdullah bin 'Amr who was narrating to us (Hadith): He said, "Allah's Apostle was neither a Fahish nor a Mutafahhish, and he used to say, 'The best among you are the best in character (having good manners)."' (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Good Manners and Form (Al-Adab), Volume 8, Book 73, Number 61)"


Most of the following writings were mostly taken from the Noble Quran which was translated by Sheikh (Minister) Abdullah Yusuf Ali; may Allah Almighty rest his soul.
