24 Jumada Al Ula 1433 | Hadith of the Day | Help Yourself by Helping Others


The Messenger of Allah (May Allah bless him and grant him peace) said:

“Allah will relieve anyone who relieves a believer of one of the afflictions of this world, of one of the afflictions of the Day of Rising. Allah will give ease in this world and the Next to anyone who eases the hardship of another. Allah will veil anyone who veils another Muslim in this world and the Next.

20 Jumada Al Ula 1433 | Hadith of the Day | Even Those Who Give Water To A Dog


The Messenger of God (peace and blessings be upon him) said: 

“Once a man was walking along a road and became very thirsty. He found a well, climbed down into it and drank. When he came out, he saw a dog driven by thirst to eat mud. He said, ‘This dog has reached the same extreme of thirst that I had reached.’ So he climbed back down the well, filled his leather sock with water and, holding it between his teeth, climbed back up and let the dog drink. Allah thanked him for that and forgave him.” They said, “Messenger of Allah, do we then receive a reward on account of animals?'” He said, “There is a reward for every live animal [lit. everything with a moist liver].”

18 Jumada Al Ula 1433 | Hadith of the Day | The Qualities of Abu Bakr (RA)


Abu Hurayra reported that: 

The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, asked, “Which of you is fasting today?” Abu Bakr said, “I am.” He asked, “Which of you has visited a sick person today? “I have,” Abu Bakr stated. Then he asked, “Who has attended a funeral today?” “I have,” Abu Bakr said. He asked, “Who has fed a poor person today?” Abu Bakr said, “I have.”

Marwan, the transmitter, said, “I heard that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, observed, “These qualities are not brought together in one man on a single day but that he will enter the Garden.”

Prophet Jesus (Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him) The Qur’anic Account


Excerpts from the Qur’an based on the Stories of the Prophets by Imam Ibn Kathir. Translation of the Qur’an based on Marmaduke Pickthall’s translation.

 

Introduction

I am reposting this from a post that I published back in 2007 as I believe that the Qur’anic account of the life of Jesus (peace be upon him) needs to be told and re-told to clarify some of the mysteries surrounding Jesus (peace be upon him) and to reclaim him as a Prophet of the Muslims.

Jesus is one of the revered Messengers of Go. Allah has mentioned the story of Mary and Jesus in many parts of the holy Qur’an. Below are some excerpts taken from the Qur’an to illustrate the Qur’anic narrative on the story of Jesus.

As this is the season of remembering Jesus I hope the following will be useful for both Christians and Muslims to reflect upon the story of this great Prophet of God.

Please refer to the ‘Stories of the Prophets’ by Ibn Kathir for a full account of the Muslim version of the tale.

You may also be interested in the notes from a talk a did a while back titled The Return of the Sun – The Truth About Jesus (PBUH)

Also of interest will be this documentary titled The Muslim Jesus  that was aired on ITV in 2007 and features our very own Shaykh Ahmad Sa’ad
