DH – Day 2

​Narrated Anas bin Malik:
While we were sitting with The Prophet (may peace be upon him) in the mosque, a man came riding on a camel. He made his camel kneel down in the mosque, tied its foreleg and then said: “Who amongst you is Muhammad?” At that time The Prophet (may peace be upon him) was sitting amongst us (his companions) leaning on his arm. We replied, “This white man reclining on his arm.” The an then addressed him, “O Son of ‘Abdul Muttalib.” The Prophet (may peace be upon him) said, “I am here to answer your questions.” The man said to The Prophet (may peace be upon him), “I want to ask you something and will be hard in questioning. So do not get angry.” The Prophet (may peace be upon him) said, “Ask whatever you want.” The man said, “I ask you by your Lord, and the Lord of those who were before you, has Allah sent you as an Apostle to all the mankind?” The Prophet (may peace be upon him) replied, “By Allah, yes.” The man further said, “I ask you by Allah. Has Allah ordered you to offer five prayers in a day and night (24 hours).? He replied, “By Allah, Yes.” The man further said, “I ask you by Allah! Has Allah ordered you to observe fasts during this month of the year (i.e. Ramadan)?” He replied, “By Allah, Yes.” The man further said, “I ask you by Allah. Has Allah ordered you to take Zakat (obligatory charity) from our rich people and distribute it amongst our poor people?” The Prophet (may peace be upon him) replied, “By Allah, yes.” Thereupon that man said, “I have believed in all that with which you have been sent, and I have been sent by my people as a messenger, and I am Dimam bin Tha’laba from the brothers of Bani Sa’d bin Bakr.”

Daily Hadith

An idea came to mind today about how to keep this place alive even without new ideas to write on, but I’m going to spare you guys all the juicy details in case I don’t follow through. Just know that hereon- I will be leaning more on the faith side of the blog. So here, the very first hadith in my daily hadith series

Narrated Ibn ‘Umar:
Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) said: Islam is based on (the following) five (principles):

1. To testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and Muhammad is Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him).

2. To offer the (compulsory congregational) prayers dutifully and perfectly.

3. To pay Zakat (i.e. obligatory charity) .

4. To perform Hajj. (i.e. Pilgrimage to Mecca)

5. To observe fast during the month of Ramadan.

This hadith is talking about the five pillars of Islam, we have to uphold all of them to be Muslim!


Peace be with you…

Quitting

“If you’re tired of starting over, quit quitting” I saw this somewhere and I couldn’t stop laughing, it was almost like the picture was made just for me – crazy right? Not really, considering that I was in the middle of telling someone about my new blog when we saw this, he totally believes that the picture was, made just for me. Do you think so too? You probably do and I can’t even blame you. Anyway, I made a post on my new blog tonight, and just so you know – I am just as lazy at it as I am here so no! I am not quitting the meek chic – no way, I love the meek chic. Continue reading “Quitting”
