His Supplication upon completing a Reading of the Qur’an

O God, Thou hast helped me complete Thy Book, which Thou sent down as a light (manifest light) and appointed as a guardian over every book Thou hast sent down, preferring it over every narrative which Thou recounted, separator, through which Thou hast separated Thy lawful from Thy unlawful, Qur’an, through which Thou hast made plain the approaches to Thy ordinance, a book, which Thou hast distinguished very distinctly for Thy servants, a revelation, which Thou hast sent down. A sending down, upon Thy prophet Muhammad (Thy blessing be upon him and his Household)

Prophet Muhammad 2

In Mecca, baby boy Muhammad was born on 17th Rabi’ L-awwal, 570AD. His father ‘Abdullah, son of Abdu’l-Muttalib, died before he was born and when he was six, he lost his loving mother Aminah nint Wahab. His grandfather, Abdu’l-Muttalib, took the responsibility of bringing up the orphan. At the age of ten, he was berefted of his venerable grandfather. On his death-bed, he appointed his son Abu Talib as the guardian of Muhammad. Gentle, soft spoken, tall and handsome boy, Muhammad, accompanied the trading caravans of Abu Talib, across the deserts, giving him deep insight into nature and man. In his youth, Muhammad participated in Hilf(Confederation of) al-Fudul for helping the widows and orphans and protecting the oppressed.

Prayer (Salat) 16

 

 Salat 16

(Fig.2)

In Islam, praise is due only to Allah, whose perfection is infinite. Besides Him none (nobody and nothing) is worthy of praise. One can express one’s appreciation for someone or something, but within the limit of his or its worth. Thanks should be given in accordance with the service and kindness rendered. But appreciation and thanks must not take the form of flattery. Flattery and exaggerated praise is detrimental to morality and calamitous to society. An exaggerating panegyrist and flatterer destroys his own personality and through his exaggerated eulogy and flattery, he debases himself. He further encourages people to project false image of themselves. These persons become increasingly more showy and self-conceited. They soon stop reflecting upon their own shortcomings to which they turn a blind eye, and show aversion to criticism of their behaviour by other.

Reciprocal Rights 17

 

Reciprocal rights 17

12. As for the right of alms(sadaghat) is that you should treat it as your deposit with your Lord, and a trust which needs no witness. When you know this you will have more confidence in that saving which is deposited secretly rather than that which is given openly; and it behaves you to keep secret with God whatever you may desire to disclose; and this should always remain as a secret between you and Him, and you should not try to get witnesses to see or hear about this (alms). Otherwise it will be an indication that you have more confidence in witnesses than in your Lord concerning the (ultimate) return of this trust to you. Moreover, you should not make anyone feel obliged to you (because you have given him alms) as this is (actually) for your own benefit. If you made him feel obliged to you, how could you be sure that you yourself would not be in his position (in the future), because your behaviour would show that you had not deposited that  alms  for your own benefit. Had you felt that it was for your own benefit, you would not have demanded obligations from others. And there is no power save in God.       .

Standing Upright (Thinking Solely of Allah)

(Fig. 2)

From this moment, until the end of the salat, ever facing the Ka’bah (Fig. 2), he keeps on addressing Allah lovingly and praisingly, refraining from speaking or replying to anyone around him. Next in adoration and praise of Allah, we first read Suratul-Hamd, paying careful attention to its valuable meaning.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم                                                                                              Bismil-Llahi-r-Rahmani-r-Rahim.(In the name of Allah the Beneficent, the Merciful                                                                                                 

الحمد لله رب العالمین .

Al-hamdu Li-Llahi Rabbi-L-alamin. (All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the worlds.

A Muslim begins every work and every speech with the Name of Allah. In the Islamic society, everything is begun with the Name of Allah Almighty.

Reciprocal right 16

As for the right of fasting (sawm) is that you should recognize it as a curtain which God has set up over your tongue, your hearing, your sight, your private part and your stomach to protect you from the Fire; and it has come in hadith {from the Prophet} that “ Fasting is a shield against the Fire” . Therefore if you keep your organs calm and quite inside this curtain, you may expect them to remain shielded; and if you allow them to remain disturbed behind the curtain trying to raise the corners of this cover, so that they come to know what is not lawful to them through glance which cause a desire and a power which is beyond the boundary of taqwa ( fear of God) you cannot be sure that it will not tear down the curtain and escape. And there is no power save in God.

He has opened for you the door of repentance. Therefore, whenever you call Him He hears your call, and whenever you whisper to Him He knows the whisper. You place before Him your needs, unveil yourself before Him, complain to Him of your worries, beseech Him to remove your troubles, seek His help in your affairs and ask from the treasuries of His mercy that which no one else has power to give, namely length of life, health of body and increase in sustenance.

Rights of acts.

As for the right of ritual prayer (salat) is that you must know that it is an arrival before God and that through it you are standing before God. When you realize it, then your stand will be that of a humble {servant of God}, longing {for His grace}, afraid {of His punishment}, fearing {His displeasure}, hoping {for His mercy}, poor, imploring {His kind-ness}, respecting the One in Whose presence you stand with calm and quite, showing reverence in your limbs, submitting your soul to Him, telling Him the secrets of your heart in a fine manner, asking Him to emancipate you from the sins which have enslaved you and the mistakes which have ruined you.

Prayer (Salat)

Salat

How to Perform the Salat.

At first we should condition our soul for worshipping the Almighty Allah. Then by expelling all other thoughts from our mind, We focus our entire attention toward Him.

Beginning with Takbir after Resolving for Salat (Fig. 1)

In all sincerity and whole- heartedly we utter “Allahu Akbar” i.e., Allah is the Greatest. Allah is Supreme and Sublime. Allah is incomprehensible and beyond our imagination.

Thus, with the utterance of Allahu Akbar, the greatness of all other things vanishes form the eyes of the worshipper. Hethen thinks of nothing but the grandeur of Allah and with all his heart and soul, he stands humbly before his Creator for salat and glorificatio

Murder

Ali’s effort to establish the Kingdom of Allah on earth, was cut short by the assassin’s sword. Ibn Muljam, the tool of Mu’awiyah, murdered ‘Ali while he was saying his morning prayer and was crowned with martyrdom on 21st Ramadan 40 A H, and was buried in an-Najaf al-Ashraf (Iraq), (See photo on p.50). Born in the House of Allah, the Kabah and was killed in the House of Allah, the Mosqueof Kufah, the Lion of Allah, the most brave-hearted and gentle Muslim that ever lived, began his glorious life with devotion to Allah and His Apostle and ended it in the Service of Islam. And do not speak of those who are slain in Allah’s way as dead; nay (they are) alive, but you do not perceive. (2: 154)

His Supplication in Asking Pardon for Misdeeds to God’s Servants and for Falling Short in their Rights and that his Neck be Set Free from the Fire

O God, I ask pardon from Thee for the person wronged in my presence whom I did not help, the favour conferred upon me for which I returned no thanks, the evildoer who asked pardon from me and whom I did not pardon, the needy person who asked from me and whom I preferred not over myself, the tight of a believer who possesses a right incumbent upon me which I did not fulfil the fault of a believer which become evident to me and which I did not conceal, and every sin which presented itself to me and which I failed to avoid.

Nahjolbalaghah 18

Commandment 31

Know that in front of you lies an impossible valley where in the light-burdened man will be in a better condition than the heavy-burden one, and the slow-paced would be in a worse condition than the swift-paced. Your terminating point at the other end of this passage will necessarily be either Paradise or Hell. Therefore, reconnoitre for yourself before alighting, and prepare the place before getting down, because after death there can be no preparation nor return to this world.

Know that He who owns the treasuries of the heavens and of the earth has permitted you to pray to Him and has promised you acceptance of the prayer. He has commanded you to beg from Him in order that He may give you and to seek His mercy in order that He may have mercy on you. He has not placed anything between you and Him that may veil Him from you. He has not required you to get a mediator for you to Him, and if you err, He has not prevented you from repentance. He does not hasten with punishment. He does not taunt you for repenting, nor does He humiliate you when humiliation is more appropriate for you. He has not been harsh in accepting repentance. He does not severely question you about your sins. He does not disappoint you of His mercy. Rather He regards abstention from sins as a virtue. He counts your one while He counts your virtue as ten.

ALTAFSIR --Surah Nas

(commentary)Noor al-Quran(    Vol12    page 319

By invoking this great attribute, Man can be hopeful and expect an especially particular retreat. Everyone should seek refuge with Allah as their King and Owner, invoking His authority over the affairs of Man, i. e., He is the One Who can independently act over His creation to seek the protection by invoking the divinity of the Lord as the God of Mankind for it is His authority which must necessarily be obeyed, i. e., it is His command or His Will which is always done. Therefore, against the evil of these whisperers, there are heavenly angels for the believing servants of Allah and seekers of Truth, to come to help them, as Sura Fussilat, No. 41. Verse 30 says: In the case of those who say: 'Our Lord is Allah', and, further, stand straight and steadfast, the angels descend on them( from time to time )...

______________________________
) 1 (- - Nahj-ul-Balaqa, Sermon 05,) Arabic Version (

Commentary(Noor al-Quran), Vol12, Page: 320

 

But, in any case, we should never be proud and feel that we are not in need of the Divine lessons, admonishments and assistance. We should always take refuge with Him and be aware and prepared.

Supplication:

O Lord! Protect us all from the evil of every tempter and dark inspiration.

O Lord! The trap is deep, the enemy is wakeful, his plots are hidden, and rescue is impossible but with Your Grace.

Al-Qiblah---the Direction (of Ka bah) which a Muslim Facees at Salat

Then stand facing the Ka ‘ba, the House renowned for the remembrance of Prophet Ibrahim (A.S.) the hero and champion of monotheism along with his son Prophet Isma’il (A.S.).These tow, the father and the son of pure temperament, once built this House at Makkah for the worship of Allah, the One and the Unique. Islam has declared this House as the very focal point of monotheism, and the Muslims have been ordered to turn their faces towards it, wherever in the world they may be, during the performance of their ‘salat’ so that it becomes the focal center of monotheism. The Holy Qur’an says:   و من حیث خرجت فول وجهک شطر المسجدالحرام و حیث ما کنتم فولوا وجوهکم شطره . 

"And from whatsoever place you set out, turn your face towards Al-Masjidul-Haram (the Sacred Mosque); and wherever you are, turn your faces towards it. (The Holy Qur’an, 2: 150) The place where we perform ‘salat’ and our dress should be unobjectionable, i.e., not having been acquired by force, nor by violation of the rights of others, nor these should be prohibited from other Islsmic viewpoints.

Commandment 31

Know that self-admiration is contrary to propriety (of action) and is a calamity for the mind. Therefore, increase your striving and do not become a treasurer for (wealth to be inherited by) others. When you have been guide on the right path humble yourself before Allah as much as you can. Know that in front of you lies a road of long distance and server hardship and that you cannot avoid seeking it. Take your requirements of provision keeping the burden light. Do not load your back beyond your power lest its weight become a mischief for you. Whenever you come across a needy person who can carry for you your provision to hand it back to you on the Day of judgement when you will need it, then accept him as a good opportunity and get him to carry it. Put in that provision as much as you are able to, for it is likely that if you may need him (afterwards), you may not get hold of him. If a person is willing to borrow from you in the days of your affluence to pay it back to you at the time of your need then make use of this opportunity.

Ali

Among sufferings and chaos, the Muslims clamoured to elect ‘Ali as the successor of the Holy Prophet and caliph of Allah.

Looking to the condition of the society, how everyone was running after this world, ‘Ali at first refused to accept the responsibility of the state, but on the third day with great reluctance, he agreed to take up the charge and to accept their oath of allegiance as a caliph. Following the footsteps of the Holy Prophet, ‘Ali established the Islamic tolerance and justice, brotherhood and goodness, He re-lit the torch of Islamic learning and progress. ‘Ali’s famous sermons and lectures given from the minber (pulpit) of the mosque of Kufa and on other occasions, have been published in a book called Nahju’l-balaghah are worth reading. In his old age, Ali’ had to make three more jihads in the battles of camel, Nahrawan and Siffin against the hypocrites, who rebelled and revolted against the commands of the Holy Qur’an and the Apostle of Allah.
