75-Year-Old Yemeni Man walked Over 2 months For Hajj

bismillah_f

Allaah says

وَأَذِّن فِي النَّاسِ بِالْحَجِّ يَأْتُوكَ رِجَالًا وَعَلَىٰ كُلِّ ضَامِرٍ يَأْتِينَ مِن كُلِّ فَجٍّ عَمِيقٍ

(interpretation of the meaning): 

“And proclaim to mankind the Hajj (pilgrimage). They will come to you on foot and on every lean camel, they will come from every deep and distant (wide) mountain highway (to perform Hajj)”

[soorah Al-Hajj, verse:27] 

A 75-year-old Yemeni walks over 2 months to reach Minaa for Hajj. 

yemeni man1

 Mohammed 3Ali Al-Mirfa3 told Al-Madina newspaper on Thursday that he started his journey from his home  town in Yemen on the third day of Eid Al-Fitr (July 3).

 He described his foot journey to be long and exhausting but he said: “I was determined to walk it  regardless of any difficulties.”

 Al-Mirfa3 said he bade farewell to his 12 children, wife and relatives and began his journey of a lifetime. He said  he is destitute and does not have anything to lose.

“I was only assisted in my journey by my strong will and determination which my long years have not been able to break,” he said.

When the newspaper met him, he was drinking a cup of tea provided to him by one of the cleaners. He was eating a loaf of bread with the tea.

“This is my breakfast. I am happy to have made it to the sacred Sites,” he said.

Al-Mirfa3 did not say if he had a Hajj campaign to accommodate him in Minaa, 3Arafat and Makkah.

He did not also say how he will go back home.

A True Story The Man Who Has Exceeded Age of 96

Boy with Cerebral Palsy Has Memorized whole Qur’aan

Bismillaah - CopyAnother beautiful inspiring story.

He may not be able to read Arabic, but he can recite the Qur’aan, his voice is confident when answering questions about the Qur’aan verses.

The extraordinary little guy is Fajar Abdurokhim Wahyudiono, 10 years old from Indonesia.

What makes him so special was that he has memorised the entire Qur’aan, despite the difficulties he faces. His ambition is simple and noble: to become an Imaam of Masjid al-Haraam, Makkah.

Fajar suffers from spastic cerebral palsy (CP), a group of disorders that can involve brain and nervous system functions, such as movement, learning, hearing, seeing, and thinking.

“Fajar loves the challenge of completing or looking for a specific verse. Not so much with reciting,” said his mother Heny Sulistiowati,  at their house in Karanganyar, Central Java, Indonesia.

Heny and her husband, Joko Wahyudiono believe that the Qur’aan is the cure for all ailments. When their son was born prematurely on October 2, 2003, they regularly played him recordings of the Qur’aan. Because of his low birth weight of only 1.6 kilos, Fajar had to remain in intensive care. When they came to bring him breast milk, Heny and Joko also brought along a recording for the nurse to play.

“I told the nurse to play the cassette once in a while for my child. At that time, the NICU usually played music.”

Playing recordings of the Qur’aan continued after Fajar was brought home. Heny and Joko were very selective as to what he was allowed to listen. It’s also why they decided not to have a TV and or listen to music at home.

“A child has to listen to good things. Everything from the Qur’aan is good, so that’s the best thing,” Heny said.

Up until he was two months old, Fajar was just like other babies. It was only when he turned three months that Heny realised there was something different about him: his development was slow. After consulting a pediatrician, they discovered that Fajar had CP. The doctor said it could have been caused by his premature delivery, as parts of his brain had not fully developed.

Together with physical therapy, Heny continued with the cassette recordings.

At age 3, when Fajar showed interest in images, Heny bought an interactive CD of the Qur’aan. And that was how he learned the Arabic alphabet.

He first spoke around the age of 3, and the first thing out of his mouth were snippets of Qur’aan verses. At first, his parents could only make out the end of the verse Fajar was trying to recite. Later, they could hear the beginning and the end, and finally they could make out the complete verse.

When he was almost 4 years old, he had memorised the entire Qur’aan. Then, he began to ask his mother to find a verse for him. Not a hafiz herself, Heny was overwhelmed and found for him a female Qur’aan teacher.

“Six months into it, the teacher said that Fajar had memorized 80-90 percent of the Qur’aan, although not in order,” she said.

He changed teachers twice and in December 2012, at the age of 9, Fajar had finally memorized the entire Qur’aan in order.

What’s more, the regular listening to the Qur’aan seems to be improving his condition, according to Heny.

A brain test at age 3 showed that his brain was experiencing seizures. Recent tests showed that these had vanished. A MRI test revealed empty spaces in Fajar’s brain, which usually indicates hydrocephalus, a condition where the brain swells from excessive fluid. However, Fajar does not have this condition. Today he even goes to public school, while his motor and cognitive skills are improving.

“This is the miracle of the Qur’aan, it wakes sleeping brain cells. Alhamdulillaah, Fajar is experiencing the blessing of the Qur’aan,” said Heny.

Indeed, from the miracles of the Qur’aan.

وَلَقَدْ يَسَّرْنَا الْقُرْآنَ لِلذِّكْرِ فَهَلْ مِن مُّدَّكِرٍ

“And We have certainly made the Qur’aan easy to understand & remember, so is there any who will remember? [soorah Al-Qamar, v:17]

may Allaah grant this boy complete shifaa’ and attach our hearts to the Qur’aan and grant us the memorization of His Book. Aameen.

Maintaining Good Deeds After Ramadaan

Bismillaah - Copy

Here are 6 practical advices on maintaining & sustaining good deeds after Ramadaan. Reflect on the virtues of these good deeds & lets compete with each other to Jannah inshaa’Allaah. 

1: Guard your Prayers:

# Don’t miss the Congregation:

It is narrated from Abu Hurayrah that the Messenger of Allaah SallAllahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “A man’s prayer in congregation is twenty-five times better than his praying in his house or marketplace, because when he does wudoo’ and does it well, then goes out to the mosque, only going there to pray, he does not take a single step but he is raised in status and a sin is erased thereby. When he prays, the angels continue to send blessings upon him so long as he is still in the place where he prayed, (saying), ‘O Allaah, send blessings on him, O Allaah have mercy on him.’ And one of you is still in a state of prayer so long as he is waiting for the prayer.” (1)

3Uthmaan ibn 3Affaan said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah SallAllahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam say: “Whoever does wudoo’ for prayer and does wudoo’ well, then walks to (perform) the prescribed prayer, and offers the prayer with the people or with the congregation or in the mosque, Allaah will forgive him his sins.” (2)

# Save yourself from the Fire!

Prophet  SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “Whoever prays for forty days with the congregation, always being present for the first takbeer, it will be written that he will be safe from two things: he will be safe from the Fire and safe from hypocrisy.” (3)

# Pray  As soon as the Iqaamah is called (for sisters)

Narrated 3Abdullaah: “I asked the Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam: “Which deed is the dearest to Allaah?” He replied, “To offer the prayers at their early stated fixed times.” (4)

2: Never miss the Regular Sunnah ((Sunnah mu’akkadah):

This is the first wall Shaytaan breaks to break your castle of Salaah.

# Buiilt A house in Jannah:

“Whoever prays twelve rak3ahs during the night and day, a house will be built for him in Paradise: four before Dhuhr and two after, two rak3ahs after Maghrib, two rak3ahs after 3Ishaa’ and two rak3ahs before Fajr prayer.” (5) see footnote for another narration.

# The Sunnah of Fajr:

“The two rak3ahs of Fajr are better than this world and everything in it.”(6). The one who misses the Sunnah prayer before Fajr may offer it after Fajr prayer.

3: Get up 1 (or half an) hour before Fajr and Pray Tahajjud:

# The Best Prayer

“The best prayer after the obligatory prayer is prayer at night.” (7)

# Don’t be a Negligent:

The Messenger of Allaah SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “Whoever prays Qiyaam reciting ten verses will not be recorded as one of the negligent. Whoever prays Qiyaam reciting one hundred verses will be recorded as one of the devout. Whoever prays Qiyaam reciting one thousand verses will be recorded as one of the Muqantireen.” (8)

Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “The closest that the Lord is to His slave is in the later part of the night, so if you can be one of those who remember Allaah at that time, then do so.”(9)

# Get all your needs answered by Allaah:

Abu Hurayrah radi Allaahu 3Anhu reported that the Prophet  SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “The Lord descends every night to the lowest heaven when one-third of the night remains and says: ‘Who will call upon Me, that I may answer Him? Who will ask of Me, that I may give him? Who will seek My forgiveness, that I may forgive him?'” (10)

4: Have A Daily Qur’aan Sitting,

Have a daily relationship with the Qur’aan. Don’t leave it for next Ramadaan.

Sit for half an hour after Fajr or whenever it will be convenient for you.

Prophet  SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: Read the Qur’aan, for it will come on the Day of Resurrection interceding for its companions.” (11)

Whoever reads a letter of the Book of Allah will have one hasanah (good deed) for it, and the hasanah (good deed) brings a tenfold reward. I do not say that ‘Alif-Laam-Meem’ is a letter; rather Alif is a letter, Laam is a letter and Meem is a letter.” (12)

# Having Difficulty in Reading:

The Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “A person who recites the Qur’an and masters it by heart, will be with the noble righteous scribes (in Heaven). And a person who exerts himself to learn the Qur’an by heart and recites it with great difficulty, will have a double reward.” (13)

5: Continue Fasting:

# Mondays & Thursdays

Abu Hurayrah radi Allaahu 3Anhu narrated that the Messenger of Allaah SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “Deeds are shown (to Allaah) on Mondays and Thursdays, and I like my deeds to be shown when I am fasting.” (14)

3Aa’ishah radi Allaahu 3Anha said: “The Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam was keen to fast on Mondays and Thursdays.” (15)

# Fasting 3 days of every month:

Jareer ibn 3Abd-Allaah radi Allaahu 3Anhu narrated that the Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “Fasting three days of each month is fasting for a lifetime, and ayaam al-beed are the thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth.” (16)

Abu Hurayrah radi Allaahu 3Anhu said: “My close friend [the Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam] advised me to do three things which I will not give up until I die: Fasting three days of each month, praying Duha, and sleeping after Witr.” (17)

# Ayyaam Al-Beed

Abu Dharr radi Allaahu 3Anhu said: The Messenger of Allaah SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said to me: “If you fast any part of the month, then fast the thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth.” (18)

6: Perform Dhikr:

a) Morning & Evening Adhkaar:

Allaah says:

وَسَبِّحْ بِحَمْدِ رَبِّكَ قَبْلَ طُلُوعِ الشَّمْسِ وَقَبْلَ غُرُوبِهَا

 “And glorify the praises of your Lord before the rising of the sun, and before its setting”  [soorah Ta-Ha, v:130]

وَاذْكُرْ رَبَّكَ فِي نَفْسِكَ تَضَرُّعًا وَخِيفَةً وَدُونَ الْجَهْرِ مِنْ الْقَوْلِ بِالْغُدُوِّ وَالْآصَالِ

“And remember your Lord within yourself, humbly and with fear and without loudness in words in the mornings and in the afternoons” [soorah Al-A3raaf, v: 205]

Read after Fajr & 3Asr salaah, it will only take 10-15 minutes.Make your day productive.

# These Adhkaar are Protection.

The Messenger of Allaah SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said:

“Reciting ‘Qul Huwa Allaahu Ahad’ and al-Ma3wadhatayn [the last two soorahs of the Qur’aan] three times in the evening and in the morning will protect you against everything.” (19)

“If a person says, every day in the morning and every night in the evening:

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الَّذِي لا يَضُرُّ مَعَ اسْمِهِ شَيْءٌ فِي الأَرْضِ وَلا فِي السَّمَاءِ وَهُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْعَلِيمُ

‘Bismillaah alladhi laa yadurru ma’a ismihi shay’un fi’l-ardi wa laa fi’l-sama’ wa Huwa al-Samee’ al-‘Aleem

(In the name of Allaah with Whose name nothing can cause harm on earth or in heaven, and He is the All-Seeing, the All-Knowing); 

three times, nothing will harm him.” (20)

# Sayyid al-Istighfaar 

Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “Whoever says this during the day, believing in it with certainty, then dies on that day before evening comes, will be one of the people of Paradise, and whoever says it at night, believing in it with certainty, then dies on that night before morning comes, will be one of the people of Paradise.” (21)

b) Adhkaar Before Sleeping:

# Reading soorah Al-Mulk

Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “A soorah from the Qur’aan containing thirty verses will intercede for a man so that he will be forgiven. It is the soorah Tabaarak Alathi bi yadihi’l-mulk [i.e., Soorat al-Mulk].” (22)

3Abd-Allaah ibn Mas3ood said: “Whoever reads Tabaarak Alathi bi yadihi’l-mulk [i.e., Soorat al-Mulk] every night, Allaah will protect him from the torment of the grave.

At the time of the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) we used to call it al-maani’ah (that which protects). In the Book of Allaah it is a soorah which, whoever recites it every night has done very well. (23)

# Reciting Aayat-ul-kursi

“When you go to your bed, recite Aayat al-Kursiy, for there will remain with you a guardian from Allaah, and no devil will approach you, until morning comes.” (24)

# Last 2 Aayaat of soorah Al-Baqarah

Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “Whoever recites the last two verses of Soorat al-Baqarah at night, they will suffice him.” (25)

Virtues of Fasting 3 Days of Every Month

besm4Virtues of Fasting 3 Days of Every Month:

It is Mustahabb to fast three days each month. There are many ahadeeth, concerning the virtues of fasting 3 days, every month.

Advice of the Prophet:

It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah radi-Allaahu 3Anhu said: “My close friend (the Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam) advised me to do three things which I will not give up until I die: fasting three days of each month, praying Duhaa and going to sleep after Witr”. (1)

Its like Fasting For a life-Time:

3Abd-Allaah ibn 3Amr ibn al-3Aaas Radi-Allaahu 3Anhu said: The Messenger of Allaah SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said to me:

“It is sufficient for you to fast three days every month, because for every good deed you will have (the reward of) ten like it, so that will be like fasting for a lifetime”. (2)

10973.imgcache

Which Days of the Month To Fast:

Mu3aadhah al-3Adawiyyah asked 3Aa’ishah, the wife of the Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam, “Did the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam fast three days of every month?”

She said, “Yes.”

She said to her: “Which days of the month did he fast?”

She said, “He did not mind which days of the month he would fast.” (3)

Fasting Ayyaam Al-Beed:

Beed  is the plural of Abyad which means white. Three days of 13, 14 and 15 of lunar month are called “Al-Ayyaam-ul-Beed” for the reason that their nights are bright because of the moonlight. The moon begins to diminish gradually after these days.

Jareer ibn 3Abd-Allaah radi-Allaahu 3Anhu said that, the Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “Fasting three days of each month is fasting for a lifetime, and Ayyaam al-Beed are the thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth.” (4)

Fasting_copy

Abu Dharr radi-Allaahu 3Anhu said: The Messenger of Allaah SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said to me: “If you fast any part of the month, then fast the thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth.” (5) 

Fasting the 3 Fast Consecutively or Separately:

Shaykh 3Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) was asked:

It was narrated in the hadeeth that the Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam advised Abu Hurayrah to fast three days of each month. When should these fasts be observed, and should they be one after the other?

He replied:

It is permissible to fast these days one after the other or separately, and they may be at the beginning of the month, or in the middle, or at the end. The matter is braod in scope, praise be to Allaah, because the Messenger of Allaah SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam did not state any specific days.

3Aa’ishah radi Allaahu 3Anha was asked: “The Messenger of Allaah SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam fast three days of each month? She said: Yes.

It was asked: In which part of the month did he fast? She said: He would not bother in which part of the month he would fast.

But the 13th, 14th & 15th are better, because these are Al–Ayyaam al-Beed. (6)

True Story of A Trustworthy Shepherd

44

Al-Tayyeb Yousef, a trustworthy Sudanese shepherd, whose loyalty and honesty earned him a great respect & reward, after his video clip refusing to sell one of his sponsor’s sheep went viral on social media.

Allaah subhaanhu wa ta3alaa praises His slaves with these  qualities in the Qur’aan:

وَالَّذِينَ هُمْ لِأَمَانَاتِهِمْ وَعَهْدِهِمْ رَاعُونَ

(interpretation of the meanings):

“Those who are faithfully true to their amaanaat (all the duties which Allaah has ordained, honesty, moral responsibility and trusts, etc.)   and to their covenants.” [soorah Al-Mu’minoon, verse:8]

 and He said: (interpretation of the meanings)

“And Whoever fears Allaah, He will make for him a way out.

And will provide for him from where he does not expect.”

[soorah At- Talaaq, verse:2-3]

The Messenger of Allaah SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam said, “Many a person with shaggy and dusty hair, dusty and driven away from doors (because of their poverty and shabby clothes) were to swear by Allaah (that something would happen), Allaah will certainly make it happen.” [Muslim]

 

Yousef was awarded a check worth SR 20,000/- by Al-Hussaini Foundation, in the presence of Shaykh 3Adel Al-Mahalawi, the person who filmed the video clip. Al-Mahalawi is also the Imaam and Lecturer at Al-Sa3egh mosque in Al-Medlej province. Some philanthropists also gave Yousef another check worth the same amount.

“For you is an Appointed Time”

1

“And for you is an Appointed Time”

[3Umar ibn 3Abd al-3Azeez]

خطب عمر بن عبد العزيز
آخر خطبة خطبها فقال فيها

3Umar ibn 3Abd al-3Azeez (rahimahu-Allaah) said in his last khutbah:

[يا أيها الناس]

O people,

إنكم لم تخلقوا عبثاً
ولم تتركوا سدىً

Indeed you have not been created for mere play
Nor will you be left in vain

وإن لكم معاداً
ينزل الله فيه للفصل بين عباده

And for you is an appointed time
Wherein Allaah will descend to judge between his servants

فقد خاب وخسر من خرج من رحمة الله
التي وسعت كل شيء

Truly the failure is he who has left the Mercy of Allaah
which has encompassed all things

و حرم جنة عرضها السماوات والأرض

And who has been forbidden from Paradise,
its width as wide as the heavens and the earth

ألا ترون أنكم في أسلاب هالكين

Don’t you see that you are indeed in a destroyed plunder

وسيرثها بعدكم الباقون

And those after you shall inherit it

كذلك حتى ترد إلى خير الوارثين

Like that it will be, until it is returned to the Best of Inheritors (Allaah)

و في كل يوم تشيعون غادياً ورائحاً إلى الله

And everyday you are going back and forth escorting (someone) to Allaah

قد قضى نحبه
و أنقضى أجله

His term has been settled
And his life is over

أتودعونه و تدعونه في صدع من الأرض
غير موسّد ولا ممهّد

Will you then bid him farewell and call him from the rough and unleveled cracks of the earth?

قد خلع الأسباب
و فارق الأحباب
و سكن التراب
و واجه الحساب

He has left all provisions
And left his beloved ones
He has settled to live among dust
And is due to face the reckoning

غني عما خلف
فقير إلى ما أسلف

He is free from what he has left behind
And in dire need of what he has put forth

فاتقوا الله عباد الله
قبل نزول الموت و انقضاء مواقيته

So fear Allaah O servants of Allaah
Before the descent of death and the coming of his time

و إني لأقول لكم هذه المقالة
وما أعلم عند أحد من الذنوب مما أعلم عندي

Indeed, I say this to you
But none knows as much as I do of the sins (I have) earned

ولكني
استغفر الله و أتوب إليه

But I seek the forgiveness of Allaah and repent to Him

ثم رفع طرف ردائه و شهق
ثم نزل فما عاد إلى المنبر حتى مات

رحمة الله عليه

He then lifted the ends of his cloak and weeped.
Then he got down and did not return to the minbar until he passed away.

May the Mercy of Allaah be upon him. Aameen

‘O People, Prepare for Departure!’

She’s My Sister [Beautiful story]

This is where You’ll be Washed

bismillah (2)

A heart moving bitter  reality that majority of us are forgetful about… by shaykh Salah 3Anad Al-3Enizee.

A tour inside the place where you’ll be washed. A must watch for all

كُلُّ نَفْسٍ ذَائِقَةُ الْمَوْتِ ۗ وَإِنَّمَا تُوَفَّوْنَ أُجُورَكُمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ ۖ فَمَن زُحْزِحَ عَنِ النَّارِ وَأُدْخِلَ الْجَنَّةَ فَقَدْ فَازَ ۗ وَمَا الْحَيَاةُ الدُّنْيَا إِلَّا مَتَاعُ الْغُرُورِ

“Everyone shall taste the death. And only on the day of Resurrection shall you be paid your wages in full. And whoever is removed away from the Fire and admitted into Paradise, he indeed is successful. The life of this world is only the enjoyment of Deception (a deceiving thing)”. [soorah Aal-e-3Imraan, v:185]

May Allaah grant us all a good ending… Ameen.
