Sirah2-Prophet Muhammed's (pbuh) marriage to Khadija/P1/2

Part 1: Prophet Muhammed's (pbuh) marriage to Khadija (ra)
Get your resources from the right places. Learn about Islam from Muslim Scholars , not from AntiIslam websites and Zionist 's channels.

The period of the Prophet's family life during his marriage to his first wife, Khadijah, could be considered as the prototype of an Islamic family life. This implies that we should look at this period as the ideal example for family relationships, practices, and attitudes which we should emulate. There is a lesson to be learned from each aspect of this relationship, starting with the circumstances surrounding its onset, followed by the numerous, happy and sad incidents known to us that filled this period of the Prophet's life.
The marriage of prophet Muhammad pbuh and Khadija was most successful. It was blessed with felicity unlimited for both husband and wife. Khadija dedicated her life to the service of her husband and of Islam. She spent all her vast wealth in strengthening Islam, and on the welfare of the Muslim
Sirah2-Prophet Muhammed's (pbuh) marriage to Khadija/P2/2


"When distress strikes and calamities come one after another, then say: La ilaha illallah."

Correct meaning of the declaration of faith in Islaam La ilaah illah Allaah (There is no god worthy of worship except Allaah). Presented by Dr Saleh As-Saleh Raheemahulah

Laa ilaaha illa Allaah

The first pillar is the Testimony of Tawheed -- the Shahaadah. The testimony of Laa ilaaha illa Allaah, Muhammadan Rasul Allaah which means that there is no god worthy of worship except Allaah and that Muhammed is Allaah's Slave and Messenger.

The meaning of Laa ilaaha illah Allaah is to believe in the firm attestation that no one deserves to be worshipped except Allaah and abiding by that and acting accordingly. Worshipping Allaah subhanahu wa ta'ala and staying away from associating partners with Him in worship. This is the real meaning of La ilaaha illah. Allaah asserted to his Prophet pbuh the importance of knowing the meaning of la ilaaha illah lah when He said:

So know (O Muhammad ) that Laa ilaaha illa Allaah (none has the right to be worshipped but Allâh), and ask forgiveness for your sin. Surah Muhammed (47:19)

This means that none deserves to be worshipped except Allaah the true God. And therefore seek him for forgiveness. The pillars of laa ilaaha illa Allaah have 2 pillars. First, a negation and second an affirmation. The negation is when we say laa ilaaha- there is no god. This negates the ascription of any partner to Allaah in any shape or form and rejecting disbelief in anything worshipped or to the exclusion of Allaah. After the negation comes the affirmation -- illah Allaah meaning except Allaah. This affirms that none deserves to be worshipped except Allaah. The meaning of this came in the book of Allaah:

Whoever disbelieves in Taaghuut and believes in Allaah, then he has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that will never break. And Allaah is All-Hearer, All-Knower. Surah al-Baqarah (2:256)
This is the meaning of laa ilaaha illa Allaah.

there is no GOD but allah= LA ILAHA ILLA ALLAH

"I bear witness that there is no God but Allah and that Muhammad is His servant and messenger."
In Chapter 3, 'Ali-I'mran, at verse 18, God, in His infinite mercy, gives us the right confession of faith.

"God bears witness that there is no god but Him and so do the angels and those possessed of knowledge. In justice, there is no god but Him, He is the exalted, the wise."

The (Last) Farewell Sermon of Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W)

{(1) The Opening Statement of the Sermon : It has the CORRECT SHAHADA, i.e.
La Elaha Ella Allah.}

All Praise is due to Allah, so we praise Him, and seek His pardon and we
turn to Him. We seek refuge with Allah from the evils of ourselves and from
the evil consequences of our deeds. Whom Allah guides aright there is none
to lead him astray.

having no partner with Him. His is the sovereignty and to Him is due all
praise. He grants life and causes death and is powerful over everything.
THERE IS NO GOD BUT ALLAH ( La Elaha Ella Allah)
Allah, the Eternal, Absolute;
He begetteth not, nor is He begotten;
And there is none like unto Him.

Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) said to Mu'adh: The key to Paradise is the testimony to the fact that there is no god but Allah.

Jimmy Carter: Israel's Apartheid

Brotherhood, Love and Unity In Islam

Allah says in The Noble Qur'an: "The Believers are but a single Brotherhood." [Al-Hujurat 49:10]

The Messenger of Allah (SWT) said, "When Muslims are angry with each other for three days. If they do not compromise then they go away from the limits of Islam and the one who compromise first will enter Jannah (Paradise) earlier."

The Messenger of Allah (SWT) said, "The Muslims are like a body, if one part of the body hurts, rest of the body will also suffer."

The Messenger of Allah (SWT) said, "Believers are brethren, their lives are equal to each other and they are as one hand against their enemy."

The Messenger of Allah (SWT) said, "It is not permissible for two Muslims to be annoyed and angry for more that three days."

It is obligatory to say salaam and return salaams, because by doing so a Muslim is giving you safety and you have to give him safety in return. It is as if he is saying to you, “I am giving you safety and security,” so you have to give him the same, so that he does not get suspicious or think that the one to whom he has given salaam is betraying him or ignoring him. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) told us that if Muslims are ignoring or forsaking one another, this will be put to an end when one of them gives salaam. Al-Bukhaari (6233) reported that Abu Ayyoob (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘It is not permissible for a Muslim to forsake his brother for more than three days, each of them turning away from the other if they meet. The better of them is the first one to say salaam.’”
This is a brief overview of the importance of giving and returning salaam.

Tips to keep your wife happy


*IMPORTANT* The article below deals with advice for men as to how to treat their wives.

You have to be gentle, understanding and friendly to your wife. You have to talk with her in a polite and soft way and sweetness of words. When you find her sad and worried, you need to say you love her and you need to cheer her up with compassion as she might be feeling depressed or hopeless at that time at home. You should be her best friend, her support in her troubles.

You should help her with the education of the children. The children will not give her a break and rest as they whine, cry, and ask for things day and night. If you help her, her Lord Allah will help you too. About the mistakes she did, you must not get angry or say rude words. Even when you have to give her silent treatment, you should cut it after one day. when you discover a bad habit of hers or a behavior you did not like about her, you should find the fault in you and say: "if I was a better person and had better behavior, she would be nicer, too".

When she gets angry, you have to be silent. When you do not respond her, she would regret and apologize to you. When she is helping, supporting and serving you, you should pray for her and you should thank and praise Allah since your wife, who is a good match for you, is a bounty by God that could never be thanked enough for.

You have to treat your wife in a way that she needs to think "my husband loves me more than anyone."

About the household and financial issues, you have to consult her and talk together. You should not bother your wife with your other big troubles and issues. You need to ignore her bad behaviors unless they are forbidden by Allah, that is, unless she is committing a sin.

You have to hide her secret faults and her private matters from everybody. You should make compliments , appropriate jokes, and create entertainment for your wife. Our beloved Prophet Muhammad would compliment, mingle and make jokes with his wife. He was the ultimate gentlemen and the most refined elegant person towards his wife. Once he had a race with his wife and his wife won, in the second time, he won.

Mild and pleasant conversations will bond you with your wife. You need to read each other about the basics pillars of Islam, and other necessary knowledge and sciences. You have to provide for her whatever you have for yourself in terms of clothing, food, and so on.

You should not reflect your troubles, problems, your sadness, enemies and your debts to her because even if she overcome these problems, these troubles will leave marks in her soul and affects her inner peace.

You should always say heartful of good praying to her face and her behind not ever bad prayers since she is always there for you and serving you day and night. She prepares your bread, your meal, mend and wash your clothes. She is the protector and manager of your dignity, honor, your properties, and your children . She is your best friend, your only support as you are to her, she is your love as you are her love."

The article above is a translation from an important book by Ibrahim Hakki, a well-known Islamic scholar and scientist, (1703-1780) which is called Marifetname. Look how Islam values women and how an Islamic scholars perspective of women was back in 18th century, way before the women`s basic rights were accepted around in the other countries of the world.

Some hadith regarding marriage:

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said: "Take my advice with regard to women: Act kindly towards women, for they were created from a rib, and the most crooked part of a rib is its uppermost. If you attempt to straighten it; you will break it, and if you leave it alone it will remain crooked; so act kindly towards women".
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "A believer must not hate (his wife) believing woman; if he dislikes one of her characteristics he will be pleased with another".

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "The believers who show the most perfect Faith are those who have the best behaviour, and the best of you are those who are the best to their wives".

Abdullah bin `Amr bin Al-`as (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "The world is but a (quick passing) enjoyment; and the best enjoyment of the world is a pious and virtuous woman".

Arabic nasheed + Eng subtitles {I wish only today will you understand me...}

An amazing arabic nasheed with a translation,

Singer: Abu Hamed أبو حامد (Anas Al-Ghamidy) أنس الغامدي
Translation: Br. Anonymous (May Allah reward him)
Nasheed: يــــا ليت اليـــوم
mp3: http://www.4shared.com/file/81072863/...

This nasheed is really a poem about someone who is upset at his friend, who has chosen to walk away from the friendship for a reason that is insignificant when knowing how important friendship is in Islam.

" The sword of care has been drawn " is a figure of speech meaning that the singer really cares about what happened between him and his friend and is worried, and also anxious to find out what was it that happened. Nasheed also reminds us of being understanding with others...

Importance of friendship:

i) Friends on that Day will be enemies one to another, except al-Muttaqoon (i.e. those who have Taqwah). Quran 43:67

ii) Ibn Abbas said: No one may taste true faith except by this (i.e. building relationships for Allahs sake), even if his prayers and fasts are many. People have come to build their relationship around the concerns of the world, but it will not benefit them in any way.

iii) 'Allah (swt) says: 'Those who have mutual love for the sake of My Glory will have pillars of light and will be ENVIED by the Prophets and martyrs.' [Saheeh Timridi]

The Seven Wonders of the Muslim World (Part 1/8) +(Part 2/8)

A series of intimate, 10-minute portraits, explores the lives and beliefs of six young people whose usual places of worship are beautiful and historic mosques across the Muslim world. The films accompany them as they leave their homes and families, follow them as they travel to Saudi Arabia, and share their responses to the culmination of their journey of a lifetime -- the pilgrimage to Mecca, where the prophet Muhammed was born.

Within decades of the death of Muhammed, Islam spread fast and its history can be traced through the flowering of exquisite Muslim architecture. Over the next few hundred years, fabulous mosques from Spain to Iran, and from Turkey to Mali formed a focus of Muslim life, as they continue to do today. The Seven Wonders of the Muslim World starts its journey at six of these locations and completes it at the mosque towards which all practising Muslims turn when they pray.
The seven wonders

1. The Grand Mosque in Mecca is the largest mosque in the world. At its centre is the Kaaba, a cubic building covered in a gold-embroidered black cloth towards which Muslims turn as they pray. Every year, millions of people perform the Hajj -- the pilgrimage during the 12th month of the Islamic year -- and many others make the pilgrimage at other times of year, which is called the Umrah.

2. The Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, Islam's third holiest city is situated next to the Dome of the Rock. This iconic golden dome can be seen from all over Jerusalem. Al-Aqsa, dates from the late 7th century, making it one of the oldest mosques in the world.

3. The Alhambra in Granada, Spain, which dates from the 13th century, was designed by Muslim architects and built by the Muslim rulers of El Andaluz, or Andalucia. It was inspired by Qur'anic descriptions of paradise as an oasis, with trees, fountains and buildings.

4. The Blue Mosque in Istanbul, lined with blue tiles and reflecting the Byzantine church architecture of 400 years ago, expresses the sumptuousness of the Ottoman Empire and represents the zenith of Muslim architecture.

5. The Great Mosque of Djenne in Mali is the tallest mud-built mosque in the world. Its thick walls and many roof supports make it dark and simple inside. Every Friday, people in this huge but poor country come into the city to pray here.

6. The Imam Mosque in Esfahan, Iran, is magnificent in its design and decoration. Built in the 16th and 17th centuries, it was a stunning statement of Persian imperial power, and incorporates a pool, colleges and communal space, as well as the mosque itself.

7. The Badshahi Mosque in Lahore, Pakistan was built in 1673 and is a wonderful example of Mughal architecture. The building's openness is in line with the Islam of the Indian subcontinent, which has traditionally been accommodating to all sects.

Muslims in China

Islam in China (650 - 1980 CE)
Yusuf Abdul Rahman

[The Ancient Record of the Tang Dynasty describes a landmark visit to China by Saad ibn Abi Waqqas (ra), one of the companions of Prophet Muhammad (s) in 650 C.E. This event is considered to be the birth of Islam in China. The Chinese emperor Yung-Wei respected the teachings of Islam and considered it to be compatible with the teachings of Confucius. To show his admiration for Islam, the emperor approved the establishment of China's first mosque at Ch'ang-an. That mosque still stands today after fourteen centuries.

Muslims virtually dominated the import/export business in China during Sung Dynasty (960 - 1279 CE). The office of Director General of Shipping was consistently held by a Muslim during this period. During the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644 CE), a period considered to be the golden age of Islam in China, Muslims fully integrated into Han society by adopting their name and some customs while retaining their Islamic mode of dress and dietary restrictions.

Anti-Muslim sentiments took root in China during the Ch'ing Dynasty (1644 - 1911 CE), which was established by Manchus who were a minority in China. Muslims in China number more than 35 million, according to unofficial counts. They represent ten distinct ethnic groups. The largest are the Chinese Hui, who comprise over half of China's Muslim population. The largest of Turkic groups are the Uygurs who are most populous in the province of Xinjiang, where they were once an overwhelming majority.]
