Plant a Tree

thamz bismillah

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Never a Muslim plants a tree, but he has the reward of charity for him; for what is eaten out of that is charity, what is stolen out of that, what the beasts eat out of that, what the birds eat out of that, is charity for him.” [Bukhari]

Plant a tree, preferably a fruit tree. Don’t worry about whether you get to enjoy its fruits or not. Let bird, beast and man benefit from it. Without even realizing how much, you will be accruing good deeds in your account. Read the rest of this entry »

Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “When I order you with something, then do as much of it as you can, and when I forbid you from something, then avoid it.” [Sahih Bukhari]

A woman came to the Sahabi, Abdullah ibn Masud (radi Allahu anhu), and said, “I have heard that you forbid tattooing and the use of false hair – is that something that you have found in the Book of Allah or from the Messenger (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam)?” Read the rest of this entry »

The Sign of the Camel

Jabir (radi Allahu anhu) narrated that when the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) passed by what used to be the dwellings, al-Hijr, of Thamud, he said: “Do not ask for signs. The people of Salih had asked for that. (So they were given the sign of a she-camel which) used to come out from this way (and he pointed to an opening) and returned from that. They transgressed the command of their Lord and hamstrung her. (The procedure was that) she drank water from the well one day and they drank her milk the next day. (They did not value this favour) but hamstrung her and so were seized by the blast which Allah the Glorious sent to them from the sky – all except one of them who was in the Haram.”

He was asked who that person was, and he said: “He was Abu Righal. When he came out of the Haram, he too suffered the same punishment that had befallen his people.” [Musnad Ahmed] Read the rest of this entry »

 

What is beauty?

Anyone with the vaguest knowledge of Islamic culture knows that it has produced extraordinary works of art and architecture — Persian miniatures, the Taj Mahal, the Alhambra. Few are aware, however, that this rich artistic heritage is firmly rooted in a worldview that highlights love and beauty.

The link between love and beauty is clear. We love what we find beautiful. Beauty attracts, ugliness repels. Nor are beauty and ugliness simply physical characteristics. We all know people who are outwardly attractive but personally repellent, and vice versa.

Beauty makes a massive appearance in love poetry like that of Ibn al-Farid, Rumi, Yunus Emre, and countless others. Their verses stir up wonder and delight by evoking the beautiful characteristics of the beloved. Read the rest of this entry »

 

The Right Time ….!

I feel it’s the right time
To act on my good wishes
That I have kept pending for a while
I feel it’s the right time
To throw away the unwanted
luggage carrying all these days
I feel it’s the right time
To live for myself
Than living for the material world
I feel it’s the right time Read the rest of this entry »
