Narrated Aisha R.A.A, The mother of faithful believers: The commencement of the divine revelations to Allah’s Messenger S.A.S was in the form of good righteous (true) dreams which came true like bright daylight, and then the love of seclusion was bestowed upon him. He used to go in seclusion n the cave of Hira where he used to worship (Allah Alone) continuously for many nights before returning to his family. He used to take with him the journey food for the stay and then come home back to his wife Khadija to take his food likewise again till suddenly the Truth descended upon him while he was in the cave of Hira. The angel came to him and asked him to read. The prophet S.A.S replied, ‘I do not know how to read’.

The prophet S.A.S added, ‘ Then the angel caught me (forcefully) and pressed me so hard that I could not bear it any more. He then released me and again asked me to read and I replied, ‘ I do not know how to read’. Thereupon he caught me again and pressed me a second  time till I could not bear it any more. He then released me and asked me again to read but I again replied, ‘I do not know how to read’. Thereupon he caught me for the third time and pressed me and then released me and said, ‘Read in the Name of your Lord, Who has created (all that exists). Has created man from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood). Read! And your Lord is the Most generous,(V.96:1-3). Then Allah Messenger S.A.S returned with the revelation and his heart beating severely. Then he came to Khadijah bint khuwalid R.A.A and said, ‘Cover me! Cover me!’ They covered him till his fear was over and after that he told khadijah R.A.A everything that happened (And said), I fear that something may happen to me’. Khadijah replied, ‘ Nerver! By Allah, Allah will never disgrace you. You keep good relations with your kith and kin, help the poor and the destitute, serve your guests generously and assist the deserving calamity-afflicted ones.’

Khadijah R.A.A then accompanied him to her cousin Waraqa bin Naufal bin Asad bin Abdul Uzza, who during the period of ignorance became a christian and used to write the writings with Hebrew letters. He would write from the Gospel in Hebrew as much as Allah wished him to write. He was an old man and had lost his eyesight. Khadijah said to Waraqa,’Listen to the story of your nephew, O my cousin!’ Waraqa said, ‘O my nephew, what have you seen?’ Allah’s Messenger described whatever he had seen. Warqa said, ‘This is the same one(angel, i.e. Jibril) whom Allah has sent to Musa. I wish I were young and could live up to the time when your people would turn you out’. Allah’s Messenger asked, ‘Will they drive me out?’ Waraqa replied in affirmative and added, ‘Anyone who came with something similar to what you have brought was treated with hostility; and if I should remain alive till the day then I would support you strongly,. But after a few days Waraqa died and the divine revelations was also paused for a while.

Narrated Jabir bin Abdullah Al-Ansari while talking about the period of pause in revelation, reported the speech of the prophet S.A.S. While i was walking, all of a sudden I heard a voice from the sky. I looked up and saw the same angel, who had visited me at the cave of Hira, sitting on a chair between the sky and the earth. I got scared of him and came back home and said, ‘Wrap me(in a blanket).’ And then Allah revealed the following Holy verses of Quran: ‘O you(Muhammad S.A.S) envoled(in garments)! Arise and warn … (upto you) and keep away from Ar-Rujz(the idols)! {V.74:1-5}. After this the revelations started coming strongly and frequently in succession one after the other. (Sahih Al Bukhari, #3 &4).

Collected and written below are some of the ways through which few sins can be expatiated against. These dua’s confirm to the fact that Islam is the easiest religion to follow, wherein a person having committed a sea full of sins still is given a hope of entering Jannah (Paradise) by reciting a few Quranic verses or dua’s with heart-felt regret , shame and Imaan (faith) in Allah’s promise.
Please note that this is a continuation of my earlier post on actions that may help in forgiveness of sins committed by a person. And that Kafaarah translates to expatiation.

Kaffaarah for committing sexual intercourse while fasting in Ramadhan: Narrated by Abu Hurairah R.A.A: ‘While we were sitting with the prophet S.A.S a man came and said, ‘O Allah’s Messenger! I have been ruined.’ Prophet S.A.S asked what was the matter with him. He replied ‘I had sexual intercourse with my wife while I was fasting’ Prophet S.A.S asked him, ‘Can you afford to manumit a slave?’ He replied in negative. Prophet S.A.S then asked ‘ Can you fast for two consecutive months?’ He replied in negative. The Prophet S.A.S asked ‘ Can you afford to feed 60 poor people?’ He replied in negative again. The Prophet S.A.S remained silent for a while and while he was in his stake, a big basket full of dates was brought to Prophet S.A.S. He asked ‘Where is the questioner?’ He replied, ‘I am here’. The Prophet S.A.S said ‘Take this and give in charity’. The man said ‘Should I give it to a person poorer than I? By Allah; there is no family between Madinah’s two mountains who are poorer than I’. The Prophet S.A.S smiled and replied, ‘Feed your family with it’. (Bukhari)

Kaffaraah of Zihar: Narrated by Khuwalyah, daughter of Malik bin Tha’labah R.A.A: ‘My husband Aws bin As-Samit pronounced the words: ‘You are like a mother to me’. So I came to the Porphet S.A.S complaining to him about my husband. The Messenger of Allah S.A.S disputed with me and said ‘Remain dutiful to Allah, he is your cousin’. I continued complaining until the Quranic verse came down : Allah has heard the words of her who disputes with you concerning her husband .. (Al-Mujaadalah (58):1) till the prescription of expaition. He then said, ‘He should set a slave free’. She said, ‘He cannot afford it’.He then said, ‘He should fast for two consecutive months’. She said, ‘Messenger of Allah S.A.S he is an old man; he cannot keep fasts. he said ‘He should then feed sixty poor people’. She said, ‘He has nothing with which he may give in alms’. At that moment an Araq (basket containing sixty Sa’s of dates) was brought to him. I said, ‘I shall help him with another date-basket. He said ‘You have done well. Go and feed sixty poor people on his behalf and return to your cousin’. (Abu Dawood)

Kaffarah for Violating Hajj: Allah S.W.T says: ‘And perform properly, the Hajj and the Umrah for Allah, But if you are prevented (from completing them), sacrifice a Hady(animal i.e. sheep, a cow, a camel etc) such as you can afford, and do not shave your heads until the Hady reaches the place of sacrifice. And whoever of you is ill or has an ailment in his scalp (necessiating shaving), he must pay a Fidyah (ransom) of either observing Sawm (fast – three days) or giving Sadaqah (charity – feeding 6 poor people) or offering sacrifice (one sheep)…’. (Al-Baraqah (2):196)

Kafaarah of hunting while in Ihram or sacred places: Allah says: O you who believe! Kill not game when you are in a state of Ihram for Hajj or Umrah and whoever of you kills it intentionally, the penalty is offering, brought to Ka’bah of an eatable animal equivalent to the one he killed as adjusted by two just men among you; for expiation, he should feed Muskimeen or its equivalent in Sawmm that he may taste the heaviness (punishment) of his deed. Allah has forgiven what is past, but whoever commits it again; Allah will take retribution from him. And Allah is All-Mighty, All Able Of Retribution‘ (Al-Maa’idah (5):95)

Allah S.W.T is great, the most merciful and bountiful. May Allah help safeguard us all against shaitan’s ill whisperings and his plots and make us all do deeds acceptable of Islam and follow the path described in Quran and followed by Prophet S.A.S. Ameen.

Allah! None has the right to be worshipped but He, the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists. Neither slumber nor sleep overtakes Him. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who is he that can intercede with Him except with His permission He knows what happens to them (His creatures) in this world, and what will happen to them in the Hereafter. And they will never compass anything of His Knowledge except that which He wills. His Kursi extends over the heavens and the earth, and He feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them. And He is the Most High, the Most Great (Surah Al-Baqara # 255)

This is Ayat Al-Kursi and tremendous virtues have been associated with it, for the authentic Hadith describes it as `the greatest Ayah in the Book of Allah.’ Imam Ahmad recorded that the Prophet commented on this Ayat,‘By He in Whose Hand is my soul! This Ayah has a tongue and two lips with which she praises the King (Allah) next to the leg of the Throne.’

Further, Ibn Marduwyah recorded that Abu Umamah reported that the Prophet said, ‘Allah’s Greatest Name, if He was supplicated with it, He answers the supplication, is in three Surahs – Al-Baqarah, Al `Imran and Ta-Ha’. Hisham bin `Ammar, the Khatib (orator) of Damascus (one of the narrators in the above narration), said, “As for Al-Baqarah, it is in, ‘Allah! None has the right to be worshipped but He, the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists‘ (# 255); in Al `Imran, it is in, ‘Alif-Lam-Mim. Allah! None has the right to be worshipped but He, the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists‘ (# 1-2),  while in Ta-Ha, it is in, ‘And (all) faces shall be humbled before (Allah), the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists‘ ( # 111)

It is recorded in the Sahih that Abu Musa said, “The Messenger of Allah delivered a speech regarding four words (Neither slumber nor sleep overtakes Him): ‘Allah does not sleep, and it does not befit His majesty that He sleeps. He lowers the scales and raises them. The deeds of the day are resurrected in front of Him before the deeds of the night, and the deeds of the night before the deeds of the day. His Veil is light, or fire, and if He removes it, the rays from His Face would burn whatever His sight reaches of His creation.’

Waki` narrated in his Tafsir that Ibn `Abbas said, “Kursi is the footstool, and no one is able to give due consideration to [Allah’s] Throne.” In addition, Ad-Dahhak said that Ibn `Abbas said, “If the seven heavens and the seven earths were flattened and laid side by side, they would add up to the size of a ring in a desert, compared to the Kursi’

Continued from here

Evil People will be expelled from Al-Madinah: The Hour will not be established until the city of Al-Madinah expels its evil people just as the bellows expel impurities from iron. Then the city of Al-Madinah will be left to be populated by whatever people of good there are remaining.

Three Earthquakes in Al-Madinah: Al-Madinah will be shaken will three successive earthquakes. When this happens, every hypocrite and disbeliever will leave the city.

Appearance of Ad-Dajjal: There is no creature of Adam until the establishment of the Hour that is greater than the Dajjal. Every Prophet warned his followers about him. Prophet S.A.S used to seek refuge with Allah from in in every prayer.Dajjal would appear from the direction of east. People will flee from him into Mountains, and he will travel through the earth. Dajjal will not leave any land except that he will enter it, except for Meccah and Madinah. For verily Allah has forbiden him from entering them. There will be angels gaurding every path that leads to these two cities.

Delusions of Dajjal: Verily, Dajjal is a great trial. He will have with him two flowing rivers. One of them will appear to the eye as flowing white water, and the other will appear to eye as if it were blazing fire. Our Prophet S.A.S advised his Ummah who comes across this, should go to the river whcih appears to be fire. He should then immerse himself in it, lower his head into it and drink from it, for verily it will be the cool water and the river which appears as water will actually be burning fire.

The Dajjal will stay for 40 days, during which one month will be like a year, a week like a month and a day like a week. His speed in transversing through the land will be like rain that is driven by a strong wind.

He will be a large bodied, young, white man with a distinctly protruding forehead and a broad chest. He will have a lot of curly hair on his head and will be blind in one eye, which would appear as a floating grape. He will have written between his eyes the word Kafir (disbeliever), which every believer literate or not would be able to read.

Eesa (Jesus) descends in Damascus: When Dajjal will appear, no one will be saved from him except a small number of believers. Easa bin Maryam will descend in the eastern part of Damascus at the place of white Minaret. The believing servants of Allah will gather around him and he will go with them seeking the Messiah of Misguidance. At the time of Easa A.S descend, Dajjal will be heading towards Jerusalam and Easa A.S will meet him at the gate of Ludd in Palestine and will kill him with his spear, and Dajjal’s followers will be defeated.

Cool Breeze from the direction of Syria: Easa A.S will remain on earth for seven years. Allah will then send a cool breeze from the direction of Syria. This breeze will not leave upon the face of the earth anyone in whose heart there  will be even an atom’s weight of good or faith, except that it will cause him to die. After this, the Hour will be established.

The sun will rise from the West: The Sun will rise from its setting place in the west and when it does, the people will see it and all will believe in Allah. But that will be a time when no persons faith will benefit him who did not believe before, or earn any good by doing righteous deeds according to Faith.

The world is bound to come to an end, Every creature is destined to die just as he was destined to born. Faith in the Last Day and what it contains of rewards and punishments is one of the pillars of Islam.Blessed are those who die as Believers, and May Allah guide those who still haven’t received perceived the reason of their existence.

There is no way for anyone to know the exact time of the Hour – The Judgement Day, But there certainly are some signs for every Believer to remember and seek guidance from. It was really fascinating to read about them, to cling on to some indications that Allah has allowed for his people to understand and save themselves from the fitnah accompanied by it.

Coming of the Prophet S.A.S: Verily, from the signs of the Hour was the advent of the Prophet Muhammad S.A.S. It has been confirmed from him that he said: “The hour and I were sent together and it almost preceded me (due to its closeness) “.

Increased Number of Earthquakes: From the signs of the Final Hour is an increased number of earthquakes and the sinking of the earth occurring in the east, the west, and the Arabian Peninsula.

Time Will Pass Quickly: Also, the time will become shorter. A year will be like a month, a month will be like a week, a week will be like a day, a day will be like an hour and an hour will be like burning of a dried palm leaf (i.e. a matter of seconds)

Gog and Magog People will appear: The people of Gog (Ya’juj) and Magog (Ma’juj) will come out. It is recorded in the two Sahihs from Zainab bint Jahsh that the Messenger of  Allah entered her house one day terrified. He said, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah. Woe to the Arabs due to the evil that is approaching. Today a hole has opened in the barrier of the people of Gog and Magog like this (and he made a circle with his thumb and index finger).

Aboandonment of Knowledge: Also, from its signs is that knowledge will decrease and ignorance will appear, so much so that people will not even know the obligatory aspects of Islam. The prophet S.A.S said, ‘Islam will fade away like the fading of embroidery on a garment. This will continue until it will not be known what is fasting, prayer, pilgrimage rites or charity. The Book of Allah will be removed during one night and there will not remain on the face of earth a single verse of it. There will remain a group amongst the people who will be extremely old and they will say ‘We found our fathers adhering to this word – None has the right to be worshiped but Allah – therefore we say it as well.

Lying and False Prophets: With the approach of the Final Hour, lying and deceit will increase. Approximately thirty deceivers and liars will appear and each of them will claim to be a prophet.

Love of the Worlds will flourish: The necks of human beings will be stretched out towards the worldly things. The people will compete in building tall buildings and they will turn away from the religion of Allah.

An-Nasai and Ibn Majah narrated in their Sunan that Aishah R.A.A said that the Messenger of Allah said, ‘Eat fresh and dried dates, because Satan gets sad when he sees the son of Adam eating them, so he says ‘The son of Adam has lived until (now) he eats the fresh and the old together’.

There types of Balah discussed are – Busr(Green Dates) ; Tamr(Dried dates) Rutab(Ripe Dates) and Ajwah(Pressed dried Dates).
Dried dates are adviced to be eaten with fresh dates rather than Green dates as Fresh dates are cold and dry while dried dates are hot and Humid, thus neutralizing the effects of each other. On the other hand, green and dried dates are both Hot, although dried dates are more Hot. Medically, its better to avoid eating two types of foods that incline towards either hotness of coldness.

Balah (Fresh Dates) are cold and dry and they benefit the mouth, the gums and the stomach. Yet, Dates are not beneficial for chest and lungs because of their coarseness. Also, the Dates are difficult to digest and are not very nutritional. The example of fresh dates is the example of unripe dates, as both cause flatulence and bloating, especially when one drinks water after eating dates. To Neutralize these sides effects, one should eat them with dried dates, or honey and butter.

Busr (Green dates) are hot and dry, and its dryness is more than its hotness. Also, the Busr dries out excess moisture, coats the stomach, relaxes the bowels and helps the gums and mouth. The most beneficial type pf Busr are the sweet and tender ones. Yet, eating excessive amounts of Busr regularly causes obstructions or clogs in the intestines.

Tamr (Dried Dates) strengthen the liver, relax the bowels, increase semen production, specially when taken with pine, and relieve soar throat. As of those who are not used to eating dried dates, Tamr cause them clogs, harm the teeth and cause headaches, unless they are eaten with almonds and poppy.
These dates are among the Nutritional fruits. Although Tamr are hot, they have the antidote against the worms, killing them or atleast decreasing them in number; if eaten at the beginning of the day(especially when taken in empty stomach).

The very Recent book That I have been reading is ‘Healing with the Medicine of Prophet‘ by Imam Ibn Qayyim Al-Jauziyah. Ever Wondered how diseases were cured ? What medications were been used ? Surely not what we do now … This Book holds answers for every Such Question. Along with Prophetic Medications with references drawn from Quran, this Book also offers information about food we eat; Its Nature and the Effect it would have on Human Body. I shall be posting Little Information for you, and hope that it benefits you in one way or the other.

Baydh: Fresh Eggs are better than Old Eggs and the Best kinds of eggs are Chicken Eggs. The Yolk (Yellow part) of the Egg is Hot and Wet and makes Blood sanitary, but isnt Nutritious. It also relieves Pain, poloshes the throat and the trachea, relieves coughing abd the ulcers of Lungs,liver and Prostate.

The Albumen (White/Transparent Part) could be used as an eye drop to relieve hot tumors in the Eye and the pain. It also prevents sunburn when applied on the face as an ointment. Also, It is used as an ointment and placed on the forehead in cases of dysentery.

The Yolk of the Egg has a strong effect in strengthening the heart. Egg Yolks has three beneficial uses: (a) It turns into blood quickly, (b) It does not produce extensive wastes, and (c) The blood produced is light and similar to the Blood that feeds the Heart. Further, Egg Yolk is most adequate substance against the diseases that affect the essence of the Soul.
