50 reasons why Muhammad (S.A.W) is so great

Source: The finalrevelation blogspot

I have seen Non Muslims and others always wonder why we Muslims love and adore the final prophet (s.a.w) so much. Why does every Muslim have to follow him and what is so Great about Rasool (s.a.w) so on and so forth. Well the answer to this can never be short. It is as huge as 500 volumes of Books. But a person is known from his actions, his teachings, his principles. And i shall enlist one example per aspect of life, or say one example per topic showing the teachings of rasool (s.a.w).

Spirituality


The Prophet said: ‘Wealth does not come from having great riches; (true) wealth is contentment of the soul.’ (Sahîh Bukhârî, Sahîh Muslim)

 

Note: the contentment of the soul is in doing what is right and shunning what is wrong.

Cognizance 


The Prophet said: ‘The similitude of the one who contemplates (thinks , believes, obeys) his Lord versus the one who does not is that of the living versus the dead.’ (Sahîh Bukhârî, Sahîh Muslim)

Sincerity


The Prophet said: ‘Actions will be judged according to their intentions.’ (Sahîh Bukhârî, Sahîh Muslim)

Mercy


The Prophet said: ‘Show mercy to those on earth so that He who is in heaven will have mercy on you.’ (Sunan At-Tirmidhî)

Gentleness


The Prophet said: ‘Whoever is deprived of gentleness is deprived of all good.’ (Sahîh Muslim)

Forgiveness


The Prophet said: ‘Whoever suffers an injury  done to him and forgives (the person responsible), Allah will raise his status to a higher degree and remove one of his sins.’ (Sunan At-Tirmidhî)

Virtue


The Prophet said: ‘Do not be people without minds of your own, saying that if others treat you well you will treat them well, and that if they do wrong you will do wrong. Instead, accustom yourselves to do good if people do good and not to do wrong if they do evil.’ (Sunan At-Tirmidhî)

Justice

Civility


The Prophet said: ‘The Muslim does not slander, curse, speak obscenely, or speak rudely.’ (Sunan At-Tirmidhî)

Honesty


The Prophet said: ‘Honesty leads to righteousness and righteousness leads to Paradise. A man remains honest and concerned about honesty until he is recorded as an honest man with Allah. Lying leads to sinfulness and sinfulness leads to the Fire. A man keeps lying and remains partial to lies until he is recorded as a liar with Allah.’ (Sahîh Bukharî, Sahîh Muslim)

Tolerance & Respect


Once the Prophet was seated at some place in Madinah, along with his Companions. During this time a funeral procession passed by. On seeing this, the Prophet stood up. One of his companions remarked that the funeral was that of a Jew. The Prophet replied, “Was he not a human being?” (Sahîh Bukhârî, Sahîh Muslim, Sunan An-Nasâ’î)

A disbelieving Bedouin urinated in the mosque, and the people rushed to beat him. Allah’s Apostle ordered them to leave him alone, let him finish and pour water over the place where he has passed urine. The Prophet then explained to the Bedouin calmly, “This is a place of worship, in it is the worship of God and the reading of Qur’an.” After the Bedouin had left, the Prophet then said to his companions, ” You have been sent to make things easy (for the people) and you have not been sent to make things difficult for them.” (Sahîh Bukhârî, Sahîh Muslim)

Equality

 

The Prophet said: ‘There is no superiority for an Arab over a non-Arab, nor for a non-Arab over an Arab, nor for a fair-skinned person over a person with dark skin, nor for a dark-skinned person over a person with fair skin. Whoever is more pious and God-fearing is more deserving of honour.’ (Musnad Ahmad)

Gratitude


The Prophet said: ‘Contemplate those who have less than you and not those who have more than you, lest you belittle the favors of Allah conferred upon you’. (Sahîh Bukhârî, Sahîh Muslim)

Simplicity


The Prophet said: ‘What is little but sufficient is better than that which is abundant but causes heedlessness.’ (Sahîh Ibn Hibbân)

Humility


The Prophet said: ‘God has revealed to me that you must be humble, so that no one oppresses another and boasts over another.’ (Sahîh Muslim, Sunan Abî Dawûd)

three people is enough for four.’ (Sahîh Bukhârî, Sahîh Muslim)

The Prophet said: ‘The religion (of Islam) is easy. No one ever made it difficult without it becoming too much for him. So avoid extremes and strike a balance, do the best you can and be cheerful, and seek Allah’s help (through prayer) in the morning, and evening, and part of the night.’ (Sahîh Bukhârî)

Charity


The Prophet said: ‘Charity (sadaqah) is due upon every joint of a person on every day that the sun rises. Administering justice between two people is an act of charity; and to help a man concerning his riding beast by helping him on to it or lifting his luggage on to it is an act of charity; a good word is charity; and every step which you take to prayer is charity; and removing that which is harmful from the road is charity.’ (Sahîh Bukhârî)

Community


The Prophet said: ‘The believer is not the one who eats his fill when the neighbour beside him is hungry.’ (Sunan Al-Bayhaqî)

Affability


The Prophet said: ‘The believer is one who is sociable [with others], and there is no benefit in one who is not sociable [with others] nor in one who is not met sociably [by them].’ (Mustadarak Al-Hâkim, Shu’ab al-Îmân Al-Bayhaqî)

Ibn Umar reported: A man mentioned to the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, that he was deceived in a business transaction, so he said, “When you enter into a transaction, buying or selling, say: there should be no deception.” [Sahih Muslim, Book 10, Number 3663]

Efficiency


The Prophet said: ‘There are two blessings that many people fail to make the most of: good health and free time.’ (Sahîh Bukhârî)

Nature & Environment

A’isha said: ‘I was once riding a difficult (slow-moving) camel, so I kept hitting it. When the Prophet saw me, he said: ‘Be gentle, for gentleness adorns everything in which it is found, and its absence leaves everything tainted.’ (Musnad Ahmad)

SERVANT

 

Narated by Al-Ma’rur: At Ar-Rabadha I met Abu Dhar who was wearing a cloak, and his slave, too, was wearing a similar one. I asked about the reason for it. He replied, “I abused a person by calling his mother with bad names.” The Prophet said to me, ‘O Abu Dhar! Did you abuse him by calling his mother with bad names you still have some characteristics of ignorance. Your slaves are your brothers and Allah has put them under your command. So whoever has a brother under his command should feed him of what he eats and dress him of what he wears. Do not ask them (slaves) to do things beyond their capacity (power) and if you do so, then help them.’” – [Bukhari, Vol.1, Book 2, #29]

 

LAW 

 

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever among you sees an evil action, let him change it with his hand [by taking action]; if he cannot, then with his tongue [by speaking out]; if he cannot then with his heart [by hating it and feeling that it is wrong], and that is the weakest of faith.” (Narrated by Muslim, 49).

 

Prophet (s.a.w) said “Many a community ruined itself in the past as they only punished the poor and ignored the offences of the exalted. By Allaah, if Muhammad’s (My) daughter Faatimah would have committed theft, her hand would have been severed.” [Al-Bukhaari]

Don’t eat too much

image

Allah says: “Eat and drink, but be not excessive. Indeed, He does not like those who commit excess.” [Sûrah al-A`râf: 31] 

Some scholars have commented on this verse, saying: “Allah has gathered together all of medicine in this verse.” 

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “The child of Adam fills no vessel worse than his stomach. Sufficient for the child of Adam are a few morsels to keep his back straight. If he must eat more, then a third should be for his food, a third for his drink, and a third left for air.” [Sunan al-Tirmidhî (2380) and Musnad Ahmad (17186) and authenticated by al-Albânî in Sahîh al-Jâmi`] 

No sensible person can be heedless of the negative consequences that overindulgence in food and drink has for our religious and worldly lives. These consequences go far above and beyond what we have already mentioned. Overeating dulls the intellect and impairs our thought processes. It leads to indolence. It hardens our hearts and inspires our basest passions and desires, giving Satan a chance to take over. 

5 qualities of a true believer

image

2. The believers are only those who, when Allah is mentioned, feel a fear in their hearts and when His Verses (this Quran) are recited unto them, they (i.e. the Verses) increase their Faith; and they put their trust in their Lord (Alone);
3. Who perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat) and spend out of that We have provided them.
4. It is they who are the believers in truth. For them are grades of dignity with their Lord, and Forgiveness and a generous provision (Paradise).

Quran (Surah Al-Anfal, verses 2 – 4)

It’s clear from these verses that the qualities of a true Muslim mentioned in these verses are the following:

When Allah is mentioned, they feel the fear of Him in their hearts;Their faith increases every time they hear and ponder over Quran’s verses;They put their trust in Allah, i.e. have Tawakkul on Allah;They perform prayers regularly;They spend in charity in the path of Allah.

As a Muslim, one can take heed from these verses and assess the state of his heart. In his tafsir, Ibn Kathir writes that none of Allah’s remembrance enters the hearts of the hypocrites upon performing what He has ordained. They neither believe in any of Allah’s Ayat nor trust (in Allah) nor pray if they are alone nor pay the Zakah due on their wealth.

The primary point is that a true believer is one when Allah is mentioned, he feels a fear in his heart, and thus implements His orders and abstains from His prohibitions.

About such people, Sufyan Ath-Thawri narrated that As-Suddi commented, “A man might be thinking of committing injustice or a sin. But he abstains when he is told, `Have Taqwa of Allah’, and his heart becomes fearful.”

Finally, for such people Allah has promised ‘grades of dignity’, i.e. special places in paradise. We know from various ahadith that paradise has many levels and the more deserving are granted better and higher grades in paradise. In a Hadith recorded by Imam Ahmad and the collectors of Sunan, Abu Atiyyah said that Ibn Abu Said said that the Messenger of Allah said,

image

Residents of Paradise see the residents of the highest grades just as you see the distant planet in the horizon of the sky. Verily, Abu Bakr and `Umar are among them (in the highest grades), and how excellent they are.”

Umuhimu wa kuamkiana

Umuhimu wa kutoleana Salaam na kuitikia Salaam

Allah Subhanahu Wataala Anasema:

“Na mtapoamkiwa kwa maamkizi yoyote, basi itikieni kwa yaliyo bora kuliko hayo au yarudisheni hayo hayo (kama mlivyoamkiwa). Hakika Allaah ni mwenye kuhesabu kila kitu.”

Allah Subhanahu Wataala Anasema:

“Na wanapo kujia wanao ziamini Ishara zetu waambie: Assalamu alaikum! Amani iwe juu yenu! Mola wenu Mlezi amejilazimisha rehema, ya kwamba atakaye fanya uovu miongoni mwenu kwa ujinga, kisha akatubu baada yake na akatengenea, basi hakika Yeye ni Mwenye maghfira na Mwenye kurehemu.”

Imepokelewa kutoka kwa Abu Hurayrah-(ra)-kwamba Mtume wa Allaah (saw) amesema:-”Naapa kwa Ambaye nafsi yangu imo Mikononi Mwake! Hamtoingia Peponi mpaka muamini, wala hamtoamini mpaka mpendane. Je, niwajulishe jambo mtakapolifanya mtapendana? Toeni Salaam baina yenu”

(Sahih Muslm).

Fadhila ya imaan ni kumuingiza mtu Peponi.

Kuridhika

Hekima ya leo.

Kuridhika hakuna uhusiano (kabisaa) na unachomiliki.

Ndio maana akasema mshairi (imamu shafi’y):

“Utakapokuwa na moyo wa kukinai (kuridhika kwa alicho kupa Mungu), Basi wewe na anaemiliki dunia ni sawa sawa”.

Na imesemwa kwamba: “kukinai (kuridhika) ni hazina isiyoisha”.

“Waambie waja wangu ya kwamba Mimi ndiye Mwenye kusamehe, Mwenye kurehemu”

Ndugu zangu:

Milango bado ipo wazi turudi kwake kabla haijafungwa kwa mauti.

Usikubali kuishi OVYO utakufa OVYO ufufuliwe pamoja na wa OVYO uishie milele pahala OVYO OVYO

Shukran.

Salat Istikhara

image

Istikhaarah maana yake ni kuomba uchaguzi au aumuzi katika jambo. Na Swalah ya Istikhaarah hakika ni zawadi kubwa tuliyopewa sisi Umma wa Muhammad صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم, kwani ina faida kubwa sana kwetu kwani hatuamui jambo letu tunaloliomba katika Swalah hii, ila baada ya kumuomba Allaah سبحانه وتعالى Atuamulie Yeye hilo jambo kama lina kheri na sisi Atufanikishe nalo na kama ni la shari Atuepushe nalo. Yeye Pekee Allaah سبحانه وتعالى Ndiye mwenye kujua ya ghayb (yasiyoonekana) yaani yatakayotokea siku za mbele yaliyokuwa yameshandikwa katika Lawhun Mahfuudhw.

Amesema Jaabir Bin Abdillah رضى الله عنه “alikuwa Mtume wa Mwenyezi Mungu akitufundisha Swala ya Istikhara kama vile anavyotufunza sura ya Qur’an.
Anasema Mtume صلى الله عليه وسلم ‘Akikusudia mmoja wenu kufanya jambo, aswali rakaa mbili zisizo za faradhi, kisha aseme:

اللّهُـمَّ إِنِّـي أَسْتَخيـرُكَ بِعِاْـمِك، وَأسْتَقْـدِرُكَ بِقُـدْرَتِـك، وَأَسْـألُـكَ مِنْ فَضْـلِكَ العَظـيم، فَإِنَّـكَ تَقْـدِرُ وَلا أَقْـدِر، وَتَـعْلَـمُ وَلا أَعْلَـم، وَأَنْـتَ عَلاّمُ الغُـيوب، اللّهُـمَّ إِنْ كُنْـتَ تَعْـلَمُ أَنَّ هـذا الأمْـرَ (وَيُسَـمِّي حاجته) خَـيْرٌ لي في دينـي وَمَعـاشي وَعاقِـبَةِ أَمْـري، ( عَاجِلِهِ و آجِلِه) فَاقْـدُرْهُ لي وَيَسِّـرْهُ لي ثـمَّ بارِكْ لي فيـه، وَإِنْ كُنْـتَ تَعْـلَمُ أَنَّ هـذا الأمْـرَ شَـرٌ لي في دينـي وَمَعـاشي وَعاقِـبَةِ أَمْـري، ( عَاجِلِهِ و آجِلِه) فَاصْرِفْـهُ عَنّيِ وَاصْرِفْني عَنْـهُ وَاقْـدُرْ ليَ الخَـيْرَ حَيْـثُ كانَ ثُـمَّ أَرْضِـني بِِـه .
 

“Allahumma inniy astakhiyruka bi’ilmika, wa astaqdiruka biqudratika wa as-aluka min fadhwlikal-‘adhwiym, fainnaka Taqdiru wa laa aqdir, wa Ta’alamu wa laa a’alamu wa Anta ‘Allaamul-ghuyuub. Allahumma in Kunta Ta’alamu anna haadhal-amra (Utaje jambo lako) Khayrul-liy fiy diyniy wa ma’aashiy, wa ‘aaqibati amriy, ‘aajilihi wa aajilihi Faqdir-hu-liy wa Yassirhu-liy, thumma Baarik-liy fiyh. Wain Kunta Ta’alamu anna haadhal-amra sharrul-liy fiy diyniy wa ma’aashiy wa ‘aaqibati amriy ‘aajilihi wa aajilihi, Faswrif-hu ‘anniy Waswrifniy ‘anhu Waqdir-liyal-khayra haythu kaana Thummar-dhwiniy bih”

“Ewe Allah, hakika mimi nakutaka ushauri (muelekezo) kwa ujuzi Wako, na nakuomba Uniwezeshe kwa uwezo Wako, na nakuomba fadhila Zako kubwa, hakika Wewe Unaweza, nami siwezi, nawe Unajua nami sijui, nawe ni Mjuzi wa yale yaliyofichikana. Ewe Allah, iwapo jambo hili kutokana na ujuzi Wako (utalitaja jambo lako) lina kheri na mimi katika dini yangu na maisha yangu na mwisho wa jambo langu (karibu na mbali) basi nakuomba Uniwezeshe nilipate, na Unifanyie wepesi, kisha Unibariki, na iwapo unajua kwamba jambo hili ni shari kangu katika dini yangu na maisha yangu na mwisho wa jambo langu (karibu na mbali) basi Liepushe na mimi na Niepushe nalo, na Nipangie jambo jengine lenye kheri nami popote lilipo, kisha Niridhishe kwalo”
Kwa hiyo inampasa Muislamu awe anaitumia sana Swalah hii kwa kila jambo lake, likiwa ni dogo au kubwa kwani juu ya kupata faida ya kwamba unamuachia Allaah سبحانه وتعالى Mwenye Ujuzi Mwenye Hikma kutuamulia, pia unapata thawabu za kuswali Raka’ah mbili.

Lakini haifai kuswali Swalah hii kwa ajili ya mambo maovu au anapotaka mtu kutimiza fardhi. Mfano mwizi haimpasi kuiswali Swalah hii ili atake uamuzi kama akaibe au la. Au mwanamke asiiswali Swalah hii ikiwa yuko katika wasiwasi wa shaytwaani unaotaka kumpelekea kufanya zinaa na kadhalika.

Vile vile asiswali mtu Swalah hii katika kutimiza mambo ya kheri kama mfano kutimiza fardhi ya kutoa Zakah au Sadaka na kadhalika wakati shaytwaan atakapokutia wasiwasi kukuzuia kutenda amali hizo njema.

Swalah hii inaweza kutumika katika mambo yanayofaa mfano unataka kwenda safari, au umeomba kazi katika shirika fulani, au unataka kuoa au mwanamke amekuja kuposwa na kadhalika.
Vile vile unapokuwa na uamuzi wa mambo mawili na hujui jambo lipi mojawapo ni lenye kheri, mfano unayo akiba yako ya fedha na kuna fursa ya kufungua mojawapo ya biashara za aina mbili, sasa hujui biashara gani katika hizo ndio yenye kheri na wewe, hapo utaswali ili upate maamuzi ya biashara itakayokuwa na kheri na wewe.

Kisha baada ya kuswali Swalah hii kwa mambo yanayofaa kuiswalia, inakuwa umeshamuachia Allaah سبحانه وتعالى Akuamulie, kwa hiyo vyovyote utakavyoamua itakuwa ndio uamuzi Wake Allaah سبحانه وتعالى na itakuwa ndio kheri yako. Wala sio lazima mtu aote kama wanavyofikiria baadhi ya watu baada ya kuswali Swalah hii.Duaa na Adkhaar

Dua za Mtume saw

Du’aa katika Sunnah ziko nyingi sana. Aghlabu ya du’aa za Mtume (صلى الله عليه وسلم) zilikuwa za mukhtasari wa maneno kwa maana kauli zake fupi lakini zenye maana tele na hikma kama alivyosema mwenyewe katika usimulizi ufuatao:

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ (رضي الله عنه) أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ (صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ) قَالَ: “فُضِّلْتُ عَلَى الأَنْبِيَاءِ بِسِتٍّ: أُعْطِيتُ جَوَامِعَ الْكَلِمِ, وَنُصِرْتُ بِالرُّعْبِ, وَأُحِلَّتْ لِيَ الْغَنَائِمُ, وَجُعِلَتْ لِيَ الأَرْضُ طَهُورًا وَمَسْجِدًا, وَأُرْسِلْتُ إِلَى الْخَلْقِ كَافَّةً, وَخُتِمَ بِيَ النَّبِيُّونَ

Imepokewa kutoka kwa Abu Huraryah (رضي الله عنه) kwamba Mtume (صلى الله عليه وسلم) amesema: ((Nimefadhilishwa juu ya Manabii kwa mambo sita; nimepewa ‘Jawaami’al-Kalimi’[1] na nimenusuriwa kwa [kutiwa] hofu [katika nyoyo za maadui] na nimehalalishiwa ghanima[2] na nimefanyiwa ardhi kuwa kitoharishi na masjid [mahali pa kuswali], na nimetumwa kwa viumbe wote, na Manabii wamekhitimishwa kwangu))[3]

Tunazigawanya Du’aa hizo katika maudhui mbali mbali na kutokana na hali zinazomkabili Muislamu:

-Du’aa Alizokuwa Akiomba Sana Mtume (صلى الله عليه وسلم )

Kuomba kheri za dunia na Akhera

رَبَّنَا آتِنَا فِي الدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً وَفِي الأَخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ

Rabbaana aatinaa fid-dduniya hasanatan wafil Aakhirati hasanatan wa qinaa adhaaban-naari[4]

Mola wetu, tupe katika dunia mema na katika Akhera mema na Tukinge adhabu ya Moto[5]

Kuthibitika Katika Dini Na Utiifu

‏ يَا مُقَلِّبَ الْقُلُوبِ ثَبِّتْ قَلْبِي عَلَى دِينِك

Yaa muqallibal quluwbi, thabbit qalbiy ‘alaa Diynika
