Transcript of "01 For What & To Whom"

  1. 1. FOR WHAT & TO WHOM YOU WORSHIP <ul><li>قُلْ إِنَّ صَلاَتِي وَنُسُكِي وَمَحْيَايَ وَمَمَاتِي لِلّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ ( سورة : الانعام : 162 ) </li></ul><ul><li>SAY (MOHAMMAD ( صلى لله عليه وسلم :”VERILY, MY SALAT(PRAYERS) MY SACRIFICE , MY LIVING , & MY DYING ARE FOR ALLAH THE LORD OF ‘ALAMEEN (MANKIND, JINNS & ALL THAT EXISTS ).(SURA: AL-ANAAM-162) </li></ul>
  2. 2. <ul><li>ALLAH (SWT) SAID IN SURAT- ALAHZAAB-21 AS FOLLOWS. </li></ul><ul><li>لَقَدْ كَانَ لَكُمْ فِي رَسُولِ اللَّهِ أُسْوَةٌ حَسَنَةٌ لِّمَن كَانَ يَرْجُو اللَّهَ وَالْيَوْمَ الْآخِرَ وَذَكَرَ اللَّهَ كَثِيرًا ( سورة احزاب :21) </li></ul><ul><li>INDEED IN THE MESSENGER OF ALLAH (MOHAMMAD ( صلى لله عليه وسلم YOU HAVE A GOOD EXAMPLE TO FOLLOW FOR HIM WHO HOPES IN (THE MEETING WITH) ALLAH & THE LAST DAY & REMEMBERS ALLAH MUCH. (SURAT- ALAHZAAB-21 33:21) </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>ISLAM MEANS SUBMITTING OUR WILL TO THE WILL OF ALLAH. </li></ul><ul><li>A MUSLIM IS REQUIRED TO FOLLOW THE QURAN & THE SUNNA . </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>TO SAVE OURSELVES FROM HELL FIRE WE HAVE TO PRACTICE ISLAM. . . . </li></ul><ul><li>BUT ? </li></ul><ul><li>ARE WE REALLY FOLLOWING THE QURAN & SUNNA </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ أَطِيعُواْ اللّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ وَلاَ تَوَلَّوْا عَنْهُ وَأَنتُمْ تَسْمَعُونَ ( سورة الأنفال 8:20) </li></ul><ul><li>وَلاَ تَكُونُواْ كَالَّذِينَ قَالُوا سَمِعْنَا وَهُمْ لاَ يَسْمَعُونَ ..... ( سورة الأنفال 8: 21) </li></ul><ul><li>إِنَّ شَرَّ الدَّوَابَّ عِندَ اللّهِ الصُّمُّ الْبُكْمُ الَّذِينَ لاَ يَعْقِلُونَ .... ( سورة الأنفال 8:22) </li></ul>ALLAH (SWT) SAID

OBEY ALLAH & HIS MESSENGER, & TURN NOT AWAY FROM HIM(i.e MESSENGER MUHAMMAD صلى الله عليه وسلم )WHILE YOU ARE HEARING …(SURAT ALANFAAL 8 :20) </li></ul><ul><li>AND BE NOT LIKE THOSE WHO SAY: “WE HAVE HEARD,” BUT THEY HEAR NOT …(SURAT ALANFAAL 8:21) </li></ul><ul><li>VERILY ! THE WORST OF (MOVING) LIVING CREATURES WITH ALLAH ARE THE DEAF & THE DUMB, THOSE WHO UNDERSTAND NOT . …(SURAT ALANFAAL 8 :22) </li></ul>MEANS
  7. 7. IN OUR SOCIETY <ul><li>WE NEED TO SCRUTINIZE SOME OF THE PREVAILED CUSTOMS </li></ul><ul><li>IN QURAN & HADITH WE HAVE VERY MINUTE & TINY THINGS RECORDED LIKE, WHEN ONE SNEEZES, WHAT TO DO & TO REPLY IT…. ETC. ETC.. </li></ul><ul><li>WHEN SUCH MINUTES THINGS RECORDED HAVE YOU EVER CHECKED WHETHER SOME OF THE PREVAILING CUSTOMS IN OUR SOCIETY ARE ACCORDING TO QURAN & SUNNA ? </li></ul><ul><li>IF NOT THEN WHO WE ARE FOLLOWING </li></ul>
  8. 8. IF WE PLACE BOTH TOGETHER AT ONE PLACE WE FEEL BAD THEN HOW BOTH CUSTOMS CAN PRACTICE TOGETHER
  9. 9. FROM WHERE THESE CUSTOMS CAME FROM <ul><li>WHEN A BABY ARRIVES IN FAMILY INSTEAD OF GIVING BEAUTIFUL & MEANINGFUL ISLAMIC NAMES. THE NAMES LIKE KASHISH, MUSKAN, ARMAN & SACHIN ARE BEING GIVEN TO THE CHILD (TAKEN FROM TV SERIALS) </li></ul><ul><li>INSTEAD OF GIVING PRIORITY OF ISLAMIC TRADITION OF AQEEQA, THE OTHERS TRADITION OF CHETTHI / CHILLA IS BEING GIVEN IMPORTANCE OVER THE ISLAMIC PRACTICES. </li></ul><ul><li>CELEBRATING BIRTHDAYS & ANNIVERSARIES </li></ul><ul><li>WE FEEL BAD & SAY A LOT WHEN A MUSLIM MARRIES A NON-MUSLIM, BUT WE DON’T WANT TO ABANDON THEIR (UN-ISLAMIC) PRACTICES FROM OUR HOMES & OUR SOCIETY </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>IN INDIAN SUB-CONTINENT’S MUSLIM SOCIETIES, IN MARRIAGE CEREMONIES STILL ENTERTAIN CUSTOMS LIKE, MANJA , SANCHAQ MEHNDI </li></ul><ul><li>BRIDE GROOMS / THEIR FAMILIES ASKING HUGE MONEY IN DOWRY </li></ul><ul><li>BRIDE GROOMS DEMAND FOR HUGE, EXTRAVAGANT & IMPRESSIVE PARTY ON RECEPTION DAY. </li></ul><ul><li>AFTER MARRIAGE, JUMAGI & SO ON </li></ul>
  11. 11. AND <ul><li>AFTER DEATH ( SAYYUM / ZIYARAT ) THIRD DAY CEREMONY </li></ul><ul><li>THEN 10 th DAY CEREMONY </li></ul><ul><li>THEN 40 th DAY CEREMONY </li></ul><ul><li>THEN YEARLY CEREMONY (BARSI ( </li></ul><ul><li>ALL OF THEM COPIED FROM OTHER SOCIETIES </li></ul><ul><li>SOME OF MUSLIMS HOMES DECORATE WITH STATUES , OR THIR MINIATURES & PICTURES (HUMAN / ANIMALS) </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>WHEN A HUSBAND DIES, THE WIDOW IS EXPECTED TO WEAR WHITE CLOTHS THROUGH OUT HER LIFE (EVEN HINDUS ABONDON THEIR SATI SYSTEM) BUT FOR US IT IS DIFFICULT TO SHUN IT. </li></ul><ul><li>STILL IT IS TREATED AS BAD OMEN , WHEN A WIDOW JOINS CERTAIN MARRIAGE OR ANY CHEERFUL CEREMONIES / OCCASIONS </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>IBRAHIM (ASWS) BROKE THE IDOLS, JUST TO FOLLOW HIM WE HAVE TO SHATTER UN-ISLAMIC TRADTIONS FROM OUR HOMES & SOCIETY. </li></ul><ul><li>IBRAHIM (ASWS) CONFRONT FIRE OF NIMROOD, BY FOLLOWING HIM WE SHOULD BE READY TO FACE THE WRATH & HEAT OF OUR LOVED ONES & IN TURN A DAY WILL COME THAT WILL BECOME GARDEN FOR US , & MAY CAUSE OUR LOVED ONES TO ESCAPE FROM HELL FIRE </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>IN WAY OF ALLAH, ISMAEL (ASWS) THE YOUNG CHILD, WAS READY TO BE SACRIFICED & LEAVE THIS BEAUTIFUL WORLD. </li></ul><ul><li>FOLLOWING HIM, CAN’T WE LEAVE SOME OF THE PLEASURE OF ENJOYING UN-ISLAMIC MARRIAGE CEREMONIES , & CUSTOMS RIGHT FROM PRE-BIRTH TILL AFTER DEATH! ALL UN-ISLAMIC ONES. </li></ul>
  15. 15. <ul><li>(MOHAMMAD ( صلى لله عليه وسلم FACED VERY TORTUROUS MOMENTS IN TAIF, FORCED TO MIGRATE FROM MAKKAH //// AFTER SOME YEARS, AND AT LAST THE WHOLE ARAB LAND WAS UNDER HIS COMMAND </li></ul><ul><li>THESE EXAMPLES GIVEN BY ALLAH (SWT) TO US OTHERWISE, NO BODY COULD HAVE EVEN TOUCHED PROPHET MOHAMMAD صلى لله عليه وسلم IN TAIF. </li></ul>
  16. 16. ALLAH (SWT) SAYS <ul><li>يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ ادْخُلُواْ فِي السِّلْمِ كَآفَّةً وَلاَ تَتَّبِعُواْ خُطُوَاتِ الشَّيْطَانِ إِنَّهُ لَكُمْ عَدُوٌّ مُّبِينٌ ( سورة البقرة 2 :208) </li></ul><ul><li>O YOU BELIEVE! ENTER PERFECTLY IN ISLAM (BY OBEYING ALL THE RULES & REGULATIONS OF THE ISLAMIC RELGION) & FOLLOW NOT FOOTSTEPS OF SATAN. VERILY HE IS TO YOU A PLAIN ENEMY (AL BAQARA 2: 208) </li></ul>
  17. 17. <ul><li>يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ اتَّقُواْ اللّهَ حَقَّ تُقَاتِهِ وَلاَ تَمُوتُنَّ إِلاَّ وَأَنتُم مُّسْلِمُونَ ( سورة : ال عمران 3: 102) </li></ul><ul><li>O YOU BELIEVE ! FEAR ALLAH (BY DOING ALL THAT HE HAS ORDERED AND BY ABSTAINING FROM ALL THAT HE HAS FORBIDDEN) AS HE SHOULD BE FEARED. (OBEY HIM, BE THANKFUL TO HIM, & REMEMBER HIM ALWAYS), & DIE NOT EXCEPT IN A STATE OF ISLAM(AS MUSLIM) WITH COMPLETE SUBMISSION TO ALLAH. (SURA AL- IMRAN 3:102) </li></ul>
  18. 18. <ul><li>أَفَتُؤْمِنُونَ بِبَعْضِ الْكِتَابِ وَتَكْفُرُونَ بِبَعْضٍ فَمَا جَزَاء مَن يَفْعَلُ ذَلِكَ مِنكُمْ إِلاَّ خِزْيٌ فِي الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا وَيَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ يُرَدُّونَ إِلَى أَشَدِّ الْعَذَابِ وَمَا اللّهُ بِغَافِلٍ عَمَّا تَعْمَلُونَ ( البقر 2: 85) </li></ul><ul><li>DO YOU BELEIVE IN A PART OF THE SCRIPTURE & REJECT THE REST? THEN WHAT IS THE RECOMPENSE OF THOSE WHO DO SO AMONG YOU, EXCEPT DISGRACE IN THE LIFE OF THIS WORLD , AND ON THE DAY OF RESURRECTION THEY SHALL BE CONSIGNED TO THE MOST GREIEVOUS TORMENT . AND ALLAH IS NOT UNAWARE OF WHAT YOU DO (AL-BAQARA 2:85) </li></ul>

(NOT FOLLOWING MOHAMMAD صلى لله عليه وسلم ) & HIS COMPANIONS. *WE WERE FOLLOWING CERTAIN MOULANA ONLY (NOT CHECKING QURAN & HADITH)
