We praise Him and seekHis help and forgiveness, and seek refuge in Him from ourown evil self and from our misdeeds. No one can misguidewhom Allah guides, and no one can guide him whom Heallows to remain in misguidance.And I testify that there is no deity besides Allah, and Itestify that Mohammad (peace be upon him) is His slaveand Messenger.O ye who believe! Fear Allah as He should be feared, anddie not except in a state of Islam.O mankind! reverence your Guardian-Lord, who createdyou from a single person, created, of like nature, His mate,and from them twain scattered (like seeds) countless menand women;- reverence Allah, through whom ye demand
  3. 3. your mutual (rights), and (reverence) the wombs (That boreyou): for Allah ever watches over you.O ye who believe! Fear Allah, and (always) say a worddirected to the Right:That He may make your conduct whole and sound andforgive you your sins: He that obeys Allah and HisMessenger, has already attained the highest achievement. ‫٣َح أَ٣َٜح جَُّز٣ٖ آَُٓ٘ٞج هُٞج أَٗلُغٌْ ٝأَِِٛ٤ٌْ َٗحسًج ٝهُٞدَٛح جَُّ٘حطُ ٝجُكؿحسزُ ػَِ٤َٜح‬ ْ َ َ َ ِ ْ َ ُ َ ُْ ْ َ ُْ َ ْ َ َ ِ ُّ )6( ُٕٝ‫ٓالتٌِسٌ ؿالظٌ شذجد ال ٣َؼظُٕٞ هللاَ ٓح أَٓشُْٛ ٝ٣َلؼُِٕٞ ٓح ٣ُإٓش‬ َ َ ْ َ َ َ ْ َ ْ َ َ َ َّ َ ْ َ ٌ َِ َِ َ ََO ye who believe! save yourselves and your families froma Fire whose fuel is Men and Stones, over which are(appointed) angels stern (and) severe, who flinch not (fromexecuting) the Commands they receive from Allah, but do(precisely) what they are commanded.The blessed month of Ramadan is not just a month offasting where the believers abstain from the usual pleasuresof life for a month. It is a month of mercy, forgiveness andbeing released from hellfire. We are urged to be generousin this month and our Creator also shows His infinitegenerosity by way of His mercy and forgiveness andreleases us from Hell fire.A hadith is often quoted on this issue whose authenticityhas been questions.Referece: : ٍ‫ٓح طكس جُكذ٣ع جُٔشٝ١ ػٖ عِٔحٕ جُلحسع٢ سػ٢ هللا ػ٘ٚ أٗٚ هح‬ ‫( خطر٘ح سعٍٞ هللا طِ٠ هللا ػِ٤ٚ ٝعِْ ك٢ آخش ٣ّٞ ٖٓ شؼرحٕ كوحٍ : أ٣ٜح‬

A great month has come over you; a blessedmonth; a month in which is a night better than a thousandmonths; month in which Allah has made it compulsoryupon you to fast by day, and voluntary to pray by night.Whoever draws nearer (to Allah) by performing any of the(optional) good deeds in (this month) shall receive the samereward as performing an obligatory deed at any other time,and whoever discharges an obligatory deed in (this month)shall receive the reward of performing seventy obligationsat any other time. This is a month whose first part is mercy,the middle part forgiveness and the last part leads to therelease from the hell fire. ‫جُكٔذ هلل‬ : ٍ‫ٛزج جُكذ٣ع سٝجٙ جذٖ خض٣ٔس ذِلظٚ ك٢ طك٤كٚ 3/191 سهْ (7881) ٝهح‬ )‫ئٕ طف جُخرش ، ٝعوطص (ئٕ) ٖٓ ذؼغ جُٔشجؾغ ٓػَ (جُطشؿ٤د ٝجُطشٛ٤د‬.‫ُِٔ٘زس١ (2/59) كظ٘ٞج إٔ جذٖ خض٣ٔس هحٍ : طف جُخرش ، ٝٛٞ ُْ ٣ؿضّ ذزُي‬ ٢‫سٝجٙ جُٔكحِٓ٢ ك٢ أٓحُ٤ٚ (392) ٝجُر٤ٜو٢ ك٢ شؼد جإل٣ٔحٕ (7/612) ٝك‬ ) ‫كؼحتَ جألٝهحش ص 641 سهْ 73 ٝأذٞ جُش٤خ جذٖ قرحٕ ك٢ ًطحخ ( جُػٞجخ‬ ‫ػضجٙ ُٚ جُغحػحض٢ ك٢ ( جُلطف جُشذحٗ٢ ) (9/332) ٝرًشٙ جُغ٤ٞؽ٢ ك٢ ( جُذس‬ٙ‫جُٔ٘ػٞس ) ٝهحٍ : أخشؾٚ جُؼو٤ِ٢ ٝػؼلٚ ) ٝجألطرٜحٗ٢ ك٢ جُطشؿ٤د ، ٝرًش‬

And he was not sure about it.Several other collections of hadith have reported thishadith, all of them from Salman Al Farsi, may Allah bepleased with him. : ‫ٝجُكذ٣ع ػؼ٤ق جإلع٘حد ُؼِط٤ٖ ٛٔح‬The chain of transmission of this hadith is weak due to tworeasons.‫-1ك٤ٚ جٗوطحع ق٤ع ُْ ٣غٔغ عؼ٤ذ ذٖ جُٔغ٤د ٖٓ عِٔحٕ جُلحسع٢ سػ٢ هللا‬ .ٚ٘‫ػ‬1.

For example the division of the month into threeperiods of ten days each, that of mercy, forgiveness andrelease from hell fire. There is no proof for this divisionsince the favors of Allah are very wide and the entiremonth of Ramadan is full of mercy and forgiveness. Allahreleases many people from the hell fire every night and atthe time of fasting as is proved by other ahadith.) ‫ٝأ٣ؼح ً : ك٢ جُكذ٣ع ( ٖٓ ضوشخ ك٤ٚ ذخظِس ٖٓ جُخ٤ش ًٖٔ أدٟ كش٣ؼس‬، ٙ‫ٝٛزج ال دُ٤َ ػِ٤ٚ ذَ جُ٘حكِس ٗحكِس ٝجُلش٣ؼس كش٣ؼس ك٢ سٓؼحٕ ٝؿ٤ش‬And similarly the statement that “whoever draws nearer (toAllah) by performing any of the (optional) good deeds in(this month) shall receive the same reward as performingan obligatory deed at any other time” is not supported byevidence since a voluntary act is a voluntary act and anobligatory act is an obligatory act whether performed in themonth of Ramadan or at other times.‫ٝك٢ جُكذ٣ع أ٣ؼح ً : ( ٖٓ أدٟ ك٤ٚ كش٣ؼس ًحٕ ًٖٔ أدٟ عرؼ٤ٖ كش٣ؼس ك٤ٔح‬٢‫عٞجٙ ) ٝك٢ ٛزج جُطكذ٣ذ ٗظش ، ئر جُكغ٘س ذؼشش أٓػحُٜح ئُ٠ عرؼٔحتس ػؼق ك‬‫سٓؼحٕ ٝؿ٤شٙ ، ٝال ٣خض ٖٓ رُي ئال جُظ٤حّ كإ أؾشٙ ػظ٤ْ دٕٝ ضكذ٣ذ‬١‫ذٔوذجس ، ُِكذ٣ع جُوذع٢ ( ًَ ػَٔ جذٖ آدّ ُٚ ئال جُظّٞ كاٗٚ ُ٢ ٝأٗح أؾض‬ .ٚ٘‫ذٚ ) ٓطلن ػِ٤ٚ ٖٓ قذ٣ع أذ٢ ٛش٣شز سػ٢ هللا ػ‬Similarly the reward of an obligatory act being equal toperforming seventy obligatory acts is open to discussionsince a good deed carries ten times to seven hundred timesthe reward whether done during the month of Ramadan oroutside of it. The only exception to this is the act of fasting
  7. 7. whose reward is great and without any limits as mentionedthe Hadith Qudsi reported by Abu Huraira, may Allah bepleased with him and agreed upon by both Imam Bukhariand Imam Muslim. The hadith mentions Allah as sayingthat every act of the son of Adam is for him except thefasting because it is for me and I will give a reward for it.s، ‫ك٤٘رـ٢ جُكزس ٖٓ جألقحد٣ع جُؼؼ٤لس ، ٝجُطػرص ٖٓ دسؾطٜح هرَ جُطكذ٣ع ذٜح‬‫ٝجُكشص ػِ٠ جٗطوحء جألقحد٣ع جُظك٤كس ك٢ كؼَ سٓؼحٕ ، ٝكن هللا جُؿٔ٤غ‬ . ٍ‫ٝضورَ ٓ٘ح جُظ٤حّ ٝجُو٤حّ ٝعحتش جألػٔح‬ ِْ‫ٝهللا أػ‬We should avoid the weak ahadith and confirm their statusbefore mentioning them.

Improving the prayers by joining the congregation withthe first takbeerIf a person offers prayers for forty days joining thecongregation with the first takbeer, for the sake of Allahonly, he achieves safety from two things: from the hellfire and from hypocrisy.This is a requirement of faith that you should be keen toperform. These two hundred prayers are like two hundredsteps to the paradise. Is the commodity of Allah notvaluable enough that you show eagerness for it? The wayto achieve this is to reduce the burdens of this world forthis period of time. You must ask Allah with each prayerthat He allows you to perform the next prayer whilejoining the congregation with the first takbeer.Improving the prayers during day will lead to the
  13. 13. improvement of prayers at night and the opposite is alsotrue. This will happen with avoidance of sins, eagerness toperform acts of obedience and performance of regular actsof remembrance of Allah at specific times. Make this animportant part of your life and strive towards itsachievement. Ask help from Allah and do not feelhelpless. If you falter one day, then resume your scheduleand do not allow yourself to be bored. This is (a way to)paradise. This is release from hell fire and safety from itslowest level . . ‫(3) جُٔكحكظس ػِ٠ طالض٢ جُلؿش ٝجُؼظش‬َ‫هحٍ طِ٠ هللا ػِ٤ٚ ٝعِْ : ] ُٖ ٣ِؽ جُ٘حس أقذ طَِّ٠ هرَ ؽِٞع جُشٔظ ٝهر‬ ] ِْ‫ؿشٝذٜح - ٣ؼ٘٢ جُلؿش ٝجُؼظش[- [ سٝجٙ ٓغ‬ ‫ٝٛزج ذإٔ ضظِ٤ٜٔح ك٢ أٍٝ جُٞهص ، ٝضكحكع ػِ٠ أدجء جُغ٘س هرِٜٔح‬ ٙ‫هحٍ طِ٠ هللا ػِ٤ٚ ٝعِْ : ] سًؼطح جُلؿش خ٤ش ٖٓ جُذٗ٤ح ٝ ٓح ك٤ٜح [ [ سٝج‬ ] ِْ‫ٓغ‬ [ ‫ٝهحٍ طِ٠ هللا ػِ٤ٚ ٝعِْ : ] سقْ هللا جٓشءج طَِّ٠ هرَ جُؼظش أسذؼح‬ ً ] ‫[سٝجٙ أذٞ دجٝد ٝجُطشٓز١ ٝقغ٘ٚ جألُرحٗ٢ (3943) ك٢ طك٤ف جُؿحٓغ‬ ‫ٝػِ٤ي إٔ ضٌػش ٖٓ جُذػحء ٝجالعطـلحس ذ٤ٖ ج٥رجٕ ٝجإلهحٓس ُططٜ٤أ ُِظالز‬ ‫كطشصم ك٤ٜح جُخشٞع ٝجُخؼٞع ، كٔذجٝٓطي ػِ٠ ٛزج عرد ػظ٤ْ العطوحٓس‬ ُّٞ٘‫جُكحٍ ٓغ هللا ، كؼظِّْ شإٔ ٛحض٤ٖ جُظالض٤ٖ ، كحعطؼٖ ػِ٠ أدجء جُلؿش ذح‬‫ٓرٌشًج ، ٝجُّ٘ٞ ػِ٠ ؽٜحسز ، ٝجألخز ذأرًحس هرَ جُّ٘ٞ ، ٝجُذػحء ذإٔ ٣ٜري هللا‬ . ْ٤‫ٛزج جُشصم جُؼظ‬ ٍ‫ٝجعطؼٖ ػِ٠ أدجء جُؼظش ذإٔ ال ضطـزٟ هرِٜح ٓرحششز ، ٝإٔ ال ضشضرؾ ذأػٔح‬ ْ‫ضشٛوي أٝ ضشـَ خحؽشى ، ٌُٖٝ قحٍٝ دجتٔح ػِ٠ هذس جُٔغططحع إٔ ضغطؿ‬ ً . ‫ئ٣ٔحٗ٤ًح ك٢ ضِي جُغحػس ٖٓ جُٜ٘حس‬3. Punctuality in offering the Fajr and the Asr prayers:
  14. 14. The Holy Prophet (pbuh) said that whoever performs theprayers before the sunrise and before the sunset will notenter the hell fire.This implies performing these prayers at their earliest(prescribed) times and the offering of voluntary prayersbefore the obligatory prayers.The Holy Prophet (pbuh) said: The two prayers (beforethe obligatory prayers) of Fajr are better than this worldand whatever is in it.The Holy Prophet (pbuh) said: “May Allah have mercy ona person who prayers four raka before the Asr prayers.”You must make supplications and ask Allah forforgiveness between the call to the prayer and thebeginning of the congregational prayer. It is hoped thatthis will lead to concentration and humility during theprayer. Consistency on this is a great means for achievingsteadfastness. These two prayers are of great importance.Seek help in performing the Fajr prayers by sleepingearly, performing ablution before sleep, performing theacts of remembrance before sleep and supplicating toAllah that He grants you this great honor.Seek help in performing the Asr prayers by eating on timeand arrange your affairs before it. Try as much as possibleto keep harmony with the faith during this time of the day. ٙ‫(4) جُٔكحكظس ػِ٠ أسذغ سًؼحش هرَ جُظٜش ٝذؼذ‬‫هحٍ طِ٠ هللا ػِ٤ٚ ٝعِْ : ] ٖٓ ٣كحكع ػِ٠ أسذغ سًؼحش هرَ جُظٜش ٝأسذغ‬ ١‫ذؼذٛح قشَّٓٚ هللا ػِ٠ جُ٘حس [ [ سٝجٙ أذٞ دجٝد ٝجُ٘غحت٢ ٝجُطشٓز‬ ] ‫ٝطككٚ جألُرحٗ٢ (485) ك٢ طك٤ف جُطشؿ٤د‬

Crying from the fear of Allah:The Holy Prophet (pbuh) said: “A person who cries fromthe fear of Allah will not enter the hell fire until the milkreturns to the udder and the dust in the path of Allah (dustraised from the marching of horses in battle) and thesmoke of hell fire will not both occupy the same nostril.”So good news to you if one drop of tear from your eyeshed out of fear of Allah is accepted. The hearts arecleaned of sins from the water flowing from the eyes. Weshould cry a lot especially in the month of Ramadan whenlistening to the recitation of the Holy Quran during theTaraweeah prayers and Tahajjud. If a person comes toAllah but only once in a year, even this will be a lot, saidSufyan At ThawriA person whose eyes become full of tears whileremembering Allah will be among the seven people whomAllah will protect under His shade on a day when therewill be no shade except His shade.
  17. 17. Allah Holy Prophet (pbuh) said” “Nothing is dearer toAllah than two drops and two footsteps. A drop of tearshed out of fear of Allah, and a drop of blood shed inAllah‟s path. As far as the footsteps are concerned, afootstep in Allah‟s path and a footstep taken in performingone of the obligatory acts.”Khalid bin Maadan said that a drop of tear can extinguishseas of fire. If it flows on the cheek, it will not see the hellfire. When a person cries out of fear or Allah his otherbody parts also participate in it. His name and his father‟sname are written in the High Place that his heart is filledwith the remembrance of Allah. ‫(6) ٓش٢ جُخطٞجش ك٢ عر٤َ هللا‬‫ػٖ ٣ض٣ذ ذٖ أذ٢ ٓش٣ْ سػ٢ هللا ػ٘ٚ هحٍ : ُكو٘٢ ػرح٣س ذٖ سكحػس ذٖ سجكغ‬‫سػ٢ هللا ػ٘ٚ ٝأٗح أٓش٢ ئُ٠ جُؿٔؼس كوحٍ أذشش كإ خطحى ٛزٙ ك٢ عر٤َ هللا‬ ‫عٔؼص أذح ػرظ ٣وٍٞ هحٍ سعٍٞ هللا طِ٠ هللا ػِ٤ٚ ٝعِْ : ] ٖٓ جؿرشش‬ٖ‫هذٓحٙ ك٢ عر٤َ هللا كٜٔح قشجّ ػِ٠ جُ٘حس [ [ سٝجٙ جُطشٓز١ ٝهحٍ قذ٣ع قغ‬ ]‫طك٤ف ٝطككٚ جألُرحٗ٢ (786)ك٢ طك٤ف جُطشؿ٤د‬ ‫كحقطغد ًَ خطٞز ضخطٞٛح ك٢ عر٤َ هللا ، ٓٔشحى ئُ٠ جُٔغؿذ ، ٝأػظٜٔح‬ . ‫ضِي جُخطٞجش ئُ٠ طالز جُؿٔؼس‬ ْ‫هحٍ طِ٠ هللا ػِ٤ٚ ٝعِْ : ] ٖٓ ؿغََّ ٣ّٞ جُؿٔؼس ٝ جؿطغَ ، غ‬ ُْٝ ، ‫ذٌش ٝجذطٌش ، ٝٓش٠ ٝ ُْ ٣شًد ، ٝدٗح ٖٓ جإلٓحّ ، ٝجعطٔغ ٝ أٗظص‬ َّ‫٣ِؾ ، ًحٕ ُٚ ذٌَ خطٞز ٣خطٞٛح ٖٓ ذ٤طٚ ئُ٠ جُٔغؿذ ػَٔ ع٘س أؾش ط٤حٜٓح‬ ( ٢ٗ‫ٝ ه٤حٜٓح [ [ أخشؾٚ جإلٓحّ أقٔذ ٝجذٖ قرحٕ ٝجُكحًْ ٝطككٚ جألُرح‬ ] ‫5046 ) ك٢ طك٤ف جُؿحٓغ‬ ‫ٝهذ ه٤َ : ئٕ ٛزج أػظْ قذ٣ع ك٢ كؼحتَ جألػٔحٍ ، كٜ٘٤ثًح ُي ضِي جُخطٞجش‬ َّ . ‫ئٕ ًحٗص ك٢ عر٤َ هللا‬ ‫كحقطغد خطحى ك٢ جُذػٞز ئُ٠ هللا ، ٝئؿحغس جُِٜٔٞف ، ٝهؼحء قحؾس أخ٤ي‬

Walking in Allah‟s path:The Holy Prophet (pbuh) said that the two feet that arecovered with dust from walking in Allah‟s path are madeforbidden on the hell fire.Seek the reward of footsteps in Allah‟s path such aswalking towards the mosque particularly for the Fridayprayers.The Holy Prophet (pbuh):“ If anyone makes (his wife) wash and he washes himselfon Friday, goes out early (for Friday prayer), attends thesermon from the beginning, walking, not riding, takes hisseat near the imam, listens attentively, and does notindulge in idle talk, he will get the reward of a yearsfasting and praying at night for every step he takes.”It is mentioned that this is the greatest hadith in thecontext of reward of deeds.Seek the reward of your footsteps in inviting people toAllah, helping those in need, attending to the needs ofyour brothers, visiting the sick, attending the funerals andsimilar acts. It is hoped from Allah that He will release usfrom the hell fire. . ‫(7) عٔحقس جألخالم‬[ [‫هحٍ طِ٠ هللا ػِ٤ٚ ٝعِْ : ] ٖٓ ًحٕ ٛ٤٘ح ُ٤٘ح هش٣رًح قشٓٚ هللا ػِ٠ جُ٘حس‬ ] ‫سٝجٙ جُكحًْ ٝطككٚ جألُرحٗ٢ (5471) ك٢ طك٤ف جُطشؿ٤د‬، ٖ٤ُِ‫هحٍ جُٔ٘حٝ١ : ٖٝٓ غْ ًحٕ جُٔظطل٠ طِ٠ هللا ػِ٤ٚ ٝعِْ ك٢ ؿح٣س ج‬

Leniency of character:The Holy Prophet (pbuh) said: “Allah will make a personforbidden to the hell fire who is soft, lenient and easy toapproach.”The Holy Prophet (pbuh) was extremely soft. If hiscompanions talked about this world, he (pbuh) talkedabout it as well. If they talked about the Hereafter, he(pbuh) talked about it as well and similarly with otherissues such as food. Just as Allah described him:“For the believers, full of pity, merciful.”So be lenient in all your affairs with people. Meet withthem cheerfully. Greeting your brother with a smiling faceis part of charity. Be forbearing not angry. Be soft anddon‟t turn off people. Your speech should be pleasing andyour heart should be soft. If your brother is upset, dealwith him gently and not with roughness. Do not forget,that this behavior leads to freedom from the hell fire. ‫(8) ئقغحٕ ضشذ٤س جُر٘حش أٝ جألخٞجش‬ ‫هحٍ طِ٠ هللا ػِ٤ٚ ٝعِْ : ] ُ٤ظ أقذ ٖٓ أٓط٢ ٣ؼٍٞ غالظ ذ٘حش أٝ غالظ‬ َّ ٚ‫أخٞجش ك٤كغٖ ئُ٤ٜٖ ئال ًٖ ُٚ عطشج ٖٓ جُ٘حس[ [ سٝجٙ جُر٤ٜو٢ ٝطكك‬

Good upbringing of daughters and sisters:The Holy Prophet (pbuh) said that if a person from mycommunity takes good care of three daughters or threesisters, then they will be a source of protection from hellfire for him.”In another hadith the Holy Prophet (pbuh) said: “If aperson has three daughters and then he shows patience,feeds them, gives them water to drink and provides properclothing for them from his effort, then they will be asource of protection from hell fire for him on the Day ofJudgement.”So work towards earning and spend on your children andsisters and seek reward for the time and money spent ontheir upbringing. But be sincere in doing this and do notdo this to show off in front of people. Pay attention totheir education, try to make them memorize the HolyQuran and teach them the Islamic dress code. Emphasizegood qualities. If you do this well, then Allah will grant
  21. 21. you the promised reward. . ‫جػطن .. ضُؼطن‬ َ َ َّ ٖٔ‫كوذ ٓؼص جُكٌٔس جإلُٜ٤س ٝجُغ٘س جُشذحٗ٤س ذإٔ جُؿضجء ٖٓ ؾ٘ظ جُؼَٔ ، ك‬ . ‫أسجد إٔ ٣ُؼطن ؿذًج ٖٓ جَُّ٘حس كِ٤وذّ هشجذ٤٘ٚ ك٤غؼ٠ ك٢ ػطن جألٗلظ‬ ِ ْ ًٚ‫هحٍ طِ٠ هللا ػِ٤ٚ ٝعِْ : ] أ٣ٔح جٓشب ٓغِْ أػطن جٓشءج ٓغِٔح كٜٞ كٌح‬ ً ‫ٖٓ جُ٘حس ، ٣ؿض١ ذٌَ ػظْ ٓ٘ٚ ػظٔح ٓ٘ٚ ، ٝأ٣ٔح جٓشأز ٓغِٔس أػطوص جٓشأز‬ ُ ‫ٓغِٔس كٜ٢ كٌحًٜح ٖٓ جُ٘حس ، ٣ؿض١ ذٌَ ػظْ ٜٓ٘ح ػظٔح ٜٓ٘ح ، ٝأ٣ٔح‬ٖ٤ٔ‫جٓشب ٓغِْ أػطن جٓشأض٤ٖ ٓغِٔط٤ٖ كٜٔح كٌحًٚ ٖٓ جُ٘حس ، ٣ؿض١ ذٌَ ػظ‬ ١‫ٜٓ٘ٔح ػظٔح ٓ٘ٚ [ [ سٝجٙ جُطرشجٗ٢ ٝأذٞ دجٝد ٝجذٖ ٓحؾٚ ٝجُطشٓز‬ ] )2700( ٢ٗ‫ٝطككٚ جألُرح‬ َّ‫ٝئرج ًحٕ ٛزج ٓطؼزسًج ك٢ صٓحٗ٘ح ، كإ كؼَ هللا ال ٣٘وطغ ، كػْ أػٔحٍ طحُكس‬ َّ ٠‫ئرج هحّ ذٜح جُؼرذ ًحٗص ًؼطن جُشهحخ ، كٜزٙ هشجذ٤٘ي ٣ح ٖٓ ضش٣ذ ػطوًح ، ػغ‬ ْ . ‫إٔ ضورَ كأذشش ق٤ٜ٘ح ذٌَ خ٤ش‬ ْFree others and be free:The divine wisdom and policy is that the reward of anaction is similar to it. So if a person wants to be freed(from hell fire) tomorrow, then he should put forwardsactions that will lead to his own freedom.The Holy Prophet (pbuh) said: “If a Muslim manemancipates a Muslim man, Allah, the Exalted, will makeevery bone of his protection for every bone of hisemancipator from Hell; and if a Muslim womanemancipates a Muslim woman, Allah will make everybone of hers protection for every bone of her emancipatorfrom Hell on the Day of Resurrection.”If freeing of slaves is not feasible in our times, even then
  22. 22. the favor of Allah remains uninterrupted. So a personshould continue to do deeds that carry the reward offreeing of slaves. These offerings, if accepted, will freehim from the hell fire ‫(9) جُؿِٞط ُِزًش ٖٓ ذؼذ طالز جُلؿش قط٠ ؽِٞع جُشٔظ ، أٝ ٖٓ ذؼذ‬َ٤ِٜ‫طالز جُؼظش قط٠ جُٔـشخ ، ضشطـَ ك٤ٜح ذحُطغر٤ف ٝجُطكٔ٤ذ ٝجُطٌر٤ش ٝجُط‬ . ‫هحٍ طِ٠ هللا ػِ٤ٚ ٝعِْ : ] ألٕ أهؼذ ٓغ هّٞ ٣زًشٕٝ هللا ضؼحُ٠ ٖٓ طالز‬‫جُـذجز قط٠ ضطِغ جُشٔظ أقد ئُ٢ ٖٓ إٔ أػطن أسذؼس ٖٓ ُٝذ ئعٔحػ٤َ ، د٣س‬ َّ ‫ًَ ٝجقذ ْٜٓ٘ جغ٘ح ػشش أُلح ، ٝألٕ أهؼذ ٓغ هّٞ ٣زًشٕٝ هللا ٖٓ طالز‬ ْ ٞ‫جُؼظش ئُ٠ إٔ ضـشخ جُشٔظ أقد ئُ٢ ٖٓ إٔ أػطن أسذؼس [ [ سٝجٙ أذ‬ َ] ‫دجٝد ٝقغ٘ٚ جألُرحٗ٢ (6305) ك٢ طك٤ف جُؿحٓغ ، (6192) ك٢ جُظك٤كس‬ ٙ‫ٝهحٍ طِ٠ هللا ػِ٤ٚ ٝعِْ : ] ألٕ أهؼذ أرًش هللا ضؼحُ٠ ٝأًرشٙ ٝأقٔذ‬ ‫ٝأعركٚ ٝأِِٛٚ قط٠ ضطِغ جُشٔظ أقد ئُ٢ ٖٓ إٔ أػطن سهرط٤ٖ ٖٓ ُٝذ‬ ْ ‫ئعٔحػ٤َ ، ٖٝٓ ذؼذ جُؼظش قط٠ ضـشخ جُشٔظ أقد ئُ٢ ٖٓ إٔ أػطن أسذغ‬ ‫سهرحش ٖٓ ُٝذ ئعٔحػ٤َ [ [ سٝجٙ جإلٓحّ جقٔذ ٝقغ٘ٚ جألُرحٗ٢ ك٢ طك٤ف‬ ] )466( ‫جُطشؿ٤د‬9.

He does not put one foot down or lift theother one except that Allah removes his mistakes andwrites down good deeds for him.”The Holy Prophet (pbuh) said: “Whoever goes around thehouse seven times without engaging in useless talk willget the reward of freeing a slave.”O Allah make us perform Hajj and Umra and do notprevent us from visiting Your Sacred House. Make adetermination to perform Hajj and Umra. If you are notable to achieve this through action, you can still achieve
  30. 30. this through intention.The Holy Prophet (pbuh) said:"Some people have remained behind us in Medina and wenever crossed a mountain path or a valley, but they werewith us (i.e. sharing the reward with us), as they have beenheld back by a (legal) excuse."So people achieved the reward of Jihad without actuallygoing on it.

Protecting the honor of your Muslim brother:The Holy Prophet (pbuh) said: “Whoever protectsthe honor of his brother in his absence, Allah will protecthim from the hell fire.”Avoid sitting where people are backbiting others,attacking their honor and saying things about your brotherwhat he would dislike. Even if you are just listening tothis you will still be committing a sin unless you voiceyour disapproval of it. If you are afraid to speak, thendisapprove it in your heart. If you are able to stand up and

Throwing an arrow in Allah‟s path:The Holy Prophet (pbuh) said: “Any Muslim who throwsan arrow in Allah‟s path, whether it reaches its target ornow, will have the reward of freeing a slave.”This is for those who are obligated to fight. On the basisof this report, the scholars emphasize the value of learningarchery and horse riding.
  33. 33. What if you are not in a position to fight physically?Allah says: “strike against them herewith with a greatendeavor.” This implies striving with the Quran.So throw an arrow in Allah‟s path by inviting people tothe religion. If one person is guided through your effortthen this would better than all the good things in thisworld. A person who invites others to do good deeds islike the one who performs them. Defend the book of Allahby helping to propagate it. Defend the sunnah of the holyProphet (pbuh) by sponsoring the students of knowledge.Help in propagating the books of Sunnah. . ‫(91) جإلُكحـ ًٝػشز جُذػحء ذزُي‬ ‫هحٍ طِ٠ هللا ػِ٤ٚ ٝعِْ : ] ٓح عأٍ سؾَ ٓغِْ هللا جُؿ٘س غالغح ئال‬ ‫هحُص جُؿ٘س : جُِْٜ أدخِٚ جُؿ٘س ، ٝ ال جعطؿحس سؾَ ٓغِْ هللا ٖٓ جُ٘حس غالغح‬ ٢ٗ‫ئال هحُص جُ٘حس : جُِْٜ أؾشٙ ِّٓ٘٢ [ [ سٝجٙ جإلٓحّ أقٔذ ٝطككٚ جألُرح‬ ] ‫(0365) ك٢ طك٤ف جُؿحٓغ‬ ٢ِ٘‫ًحٕ عل٤حٕ جُػٞس١ ٣غط٤وع ٓشػٞذًح ٣وٍٞ : جُ٘حس .. جُ٘حس ، ٝ٣وٍٞ : شـ‬ ‫رًش جُ٘حس ػٖ جُّ٘ٞ ٝجُشٜٞجش ، غْ ٣طٞػأ ٝ٣وٍٞ ئغش ٝػٞتٚ : جُِْٜ ئَّٗي‬ َّ ‫ػحُْ ذكحؾط٢ ؿ٤ش ٓؼَِّْ ، ٝٓح أؽِد ئال كٌحى سهرط٢ ٖٓ جَُّ٘حس .

  36. 36. back to him.Allah says:“the blood-money must be paid unto his folk and (also) abelieving slave must be set free. And whoso hath not thewherewithal must fast two consecutive months. A penancefrom Allah. Allah is Knower, Wise.” (An Nisa 92)“Those who put away their wives (by saying they are astheir mothers) and afterward would go back on that whichthey have said, (the penalty) in that case (is) the freeing ofa slave before they touch one another. Unto this ye areexhorted; and Allah is Informed of what ye do.And he who findeth not (the wherewithal), let him fast fortwo successive months before they touch one another.“(Al Mujadila 3-4)‫كارج ًحٕ جُظ٤حّ ذذ٣الً ػٖ جُؼطن ، ٝئرج ًحٕ ٖٓ أػطن سهرس أُػطن ذٜح ٖٓ جَُّ٘حس‬ ‫، كِؼَ جإلًػحس ٖٓ جُظ٤حّ عرد ُ٘لظ جُؿضجء‬ ْ‫كالذذ ٖٓ ضؼحٛذٙ ذحإلطالـ ، ذإٔ ٣ٌٕٞ ط٤حٓح ػٖ جُٔكشٓحش ، ٝػذّ جُٞهٞع‬ ً ّ‫ك٢ جٌُٔشٝٛحش ، ٝػذّ جُطٞعغ ك٢ جُٔرحقحش ، ط٤حّ ُِؿٞجسـ ، ذَ ط٤ح‬٢‫ُِوِد ػٖ ًَ شحؿَ ٣شـِٚ ػٖ هللا ، كطشكن ، ٝال ضغطٌػش ٖٓ أٓٞس جُذٗ٤ح ك‬ )1(. ‫سٓؼحٕ ، كشٓؼحٕ جُلشطس جُػٔ٤٘س ُِلٞص ذحُؿ٘س ٝجُ٘ؿحز ٖٓ جُ٘حس‬Since fasting is a substitute for freeing slaves, and freeingslaves is a means of freedom from Hellfire, that it is hopedthat a lot of fasting will be a means of obtaining it.The act of fasting should be improved upon by abstaining
  37. 37. from the forbidden acts, and avoiding overindulgence inallowable things. This would be like the fasting of bodyparts. The fasting of heart requires avoiding everythingthat interferes with one‟s preoccupation with Allah. Donot spend too much time in engagement with worldlyaffairs during the month of Ramadan since it provideswith an invaluable opportunity to earn Paradise andsalvation from Hell fire. . ٖ٤ً‫(12) ئؽؼحّ جُطؼحّ ُِٔغح‬ ‫كوذ ؾؼَ هللا ئؽؼحّ جُطؼحّ ٓكَ جُؼطن ك٢ ًلحسز جُظٜحس ] ٖٝٓ َُّْ ٣َغطَطغ‬ ْ ِ ْ ْ َ َ ِ َ َ َّ ُ ُ ُ َ َ ِ َ َ َّ ِ ْ َ َ ِ ْ ِ َ ِ ُ َْ ٖ٣‫كَاِؽؼحّ عطِّ٤ٖ ٓغٌ٤ً٘ح رُِي ُِطُإُٓ٘ٞج ذِحهللِ ٝسعُُِٞٚ ٝضِ ِْي قذٝد هللاِ ُِٝ ٌِْحكِش‬ ]4 : ‫ػزجخٌ أَُِ٤ْ [ [ جُٔؿحدُس‬ ٌ ََ . ٕ‫ٝؾؼَ ئؽؼحّ جُٔغحً٤ٖ أٝ ًغٞضْٜ ٓكَ ػطن جُشهحخ ك٢ ًلحسز جأل٣ٔح‬ ُّْ‫هحٍ ضؼحُ٠ : ] الَ ٣ُإجخزًْ هللاُ ذِحَُِّـٞ كِ٢ أَ٣ٔحٌِْٗ ٌَُٖٝ ٣ُإجخزًْ ذِٔح ػوَّذض‬ ُ َ َ ُ ُ ِ َ ِ َ ُْ َْ ِ ْ ّ ُُُِ َ ْ ُْ ْ َ ُ ِْ َ ِ َ ْ ْ ِ َ ِ َ َ َِ َ َ ُ َْ َٝ‫جألَ٣ٔحٕ كٌَلَّحسضُُٚ ئِؽؼحّ ػششز ٓغحً٤ٖ ٖٓ أَٝعؾ ٓح ضُطؼٕٔٞ أَِِٛ٤ٌْ أ‬ َ َ َ َْ ‫ًغٞضُُْٜ أَٝ ضَكْ ش٣ش سهَرَس كَٖٔ َُّْ ٣َؿذ كَظ٤َحّ غَالَغَس أَ٣َّحّ رُِي ًلَّحسزُ أَ٣ٔحٌِْٗ ئِرج‬ َ ُْ َْ َ َ َ َ ٍ ِ ُ ِ ِْ ْ َ ٍ َ ُ ِ ْ ْ َ ْ ِ ‫قَِلطُْ ٝجقْ لَظُٞج أَ٣ٔحٌَْٗ ًزُِي ٣ُرَ٤ِّٖ هللاُ ٌَُْ آ٣َحضِٚ َُؼٌَِّْ ضَشٌشُٕٝ[ [عٞسز جُٔحتذز‬ َ ُ ْ ُْ َ ِ ُْ ّ ُ َ ََ ُْ َْ ْ َ ْ ْ َ ]89:21: Providing food for the poor.Allah prescribed feeding of poor as one of the means ofcompensation for dhihar.“and for him who is unable to do so (the penance is) thefeeding of sixty needy ones.” Al Mujadila 4Allah made the feeding and provision of clothing for thepoor as means of compensation for breaking oaths.“Allah will not take you to task for that which isunintentional in your oaths, but He will take you to task
