  1. Everyone is busy in writing his book which will be presented before him one day: Surah Al-Isra, Verse 13: وَكُلَّ إِنسَانٍ أَلْزَمْنَاهُ طَائِرَهُ فِي عُنُقِهِ وَنُخْرِجُ لَهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ كِتَابًا يَلْقَاهُ مَنشُورًا And We have made every man's actions to cling to his neck, and We will bring forth to him on the resurrection day a book which he will find wide open: Surah Al-Isra, Verse 14: اقْرَأْ كِتَابَكَ كَفَىٰ بِنَفْسِكَ الْيَوْمَ عَلَيْكَ حَسِيبًا Read your book; your own self is sufficient as a reckoner against you this day. If Yasir Al Habib is a hypocrite or zionist agent, he is doing harm to himself by ignoring the above mentioned words of Allah (s.w.t). Ignoring that One has access to our intentions & our secrets of the hearts: وَكَفَىٰ بِرَبِّكَ بِذُنُوبِ عِبَادِهِ خَبِيرًا بَصِيرًا
  2. 1&2. Quran not only mentions evolution but also devolution; unfortunately, for scientists, evolution is irreversible process. The following two verses of Quran mentions evolution under divine guidance and it is something different from existing models of theory of evolution. (76:28) نَحْنُ خَلَقْنَاهُمْ وَشَدَدْنَا أَسْرَهُمْ وَإِذَا شِئْنَا بَدَّلْنَا أَمْثَالَهُمْ تَبْدِيلًا "We created them and made firm their make, and when We please We will bring in their places the likes of them by a change" (21:30) أَوَلَمْ يَرَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا أَنَّ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ كَانَتَا رَتْقًا فَفَتَقْنَاهُمَا وَجَعَلْنَا مِنَ الْمَاء كُلَّ شَيْءٍ حَيٍّ أَفَلَا يُؤْمِنُونَ "Do not those who disbelieve see that the heavens and earth were closed up, but we have opened them; and We have made of water everything living, will they not then believe?" 3. Earth is created in two days as per Quran. We don't know much about the length of that day, it can be as long as 1000 years or 50,000 years or even more. Scientists assumes that the age of earth is 4.5 billion years approximately.
  3. You need to read this: "I was still a new born baby, when the Holy Prophet (s) took me from my parents. I used to cling to him and he used to feed me, and (when I grew a little older), he never found me uttering a lie or feigning a deceit. To me he was like a guiding star and I used to follow his actions and deeds carefully. I was attached to him like a foal of camel attached to its mother. He used to place before me high values of morality, and used to advise me to follow them; every year, he would spend some days at the grotto of the Mt. Hira and I used to be with him, I was his only companion then and none else could meet him at Hira, there I used to see the light of revelation, and used to smell the fragrance of Prophethood. Once the Holy Prophet (s) told me: "Ali! You have attained a very eminent place. You see what I see and you hear what I hear." (See also Nahjul Balagha, Sermon a190)
  4. Here is another version of translation of this verse: Surah An-Noor, Verse 26: الْخَبِيثَاتُ لِلْخَبِيثِينَ وَالْخَبِيثُونَ لِلْخَبِيثَاتِ وَالطَّيِّبَاتُ لِلطَّيِّبِينَ وَالطَّيِّبُونَ لِلطَّيِّبَاتِ أُولَٰئِكَ مُبَرَّءُونَ مِمَّا يَقُولُونَ لَهُم مَّغْفِرَةٌ وَرِزْقٌ كَرِيمٌ Unclean things are for unclean ones and unclean ones are for unclean things, and the good things are for good ones and the good ones are for good things; these are free from what they say; they shall have forgiveness and an honorable sustenance. (English - Shakir) If it is assumed to be said for mother(s) of believers than we see in Quran, these verses also: Surah At-Tahrim, Verse 4: إِن تَتُوبَا إِلَى اللَّهِ فَقَدْ صَغَتْ قُلُوبُكُمَا وَإِن تَظَاهَرَا عَلَيْهِ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ مَوْلَاهُ وَجِبْرِيلُ وَصَالِحُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَالْمَلَائِكَةُ بَعْدَ ذَٰلِكَ ظَهِيرٌ If you both turn to Allah, then indeed your hearts are already inclined (to this); and if you back up each other against him, then surely Allah it is Who is his Guardian, and Jibreel and -the believers that do good, and the angels after that are the aiders. (English - Shakir) Surah At-Tahrim, Verse 5: عَسَىٰ رَبُّهُ إِن طَلَّقَكُنَّ أَن يُبْدِلَهُ أَزْوَاجًا خَيْرًا مِّنكُنَّ مُسْلِمَاتٍ مُّؤْمِنَاتٍ قَانِتَاتٍ تَائِبَاتٍ عَابِدَاتٍ سَائِحَاتٍ ثَيِّبَاتٍ وَأَبْكَارًا Maybe, his Lord, if he divorce you, will give him in your place wives better than you, submissive, faithful, obedient, penitent, adorers, fasters, widows and virgins. (English - Shakir) So how can anyone relate 24:26 to Aisha after going through the verses of chapter 66? Surah At-Tahrim, Verse 10: ضَرَبَ اللَّهُ مَثَلًا لِّلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا امْرَأَتَ نُوحٍ وَامْرَأَتَ لُوطٍ كَانَتَا تَحْتَ عَبْدَيْنِ مِنْ عِبَادِنَا صَالِحَيْنِ فَخَانَتَاهُمَا فَلَمْ يُغْنِيَا عَنْهُمَا مِنَ اللَّهِ شَيْئًا وَقِيلَ ادْخُلَا النَّارَ مَعَ الدَّاخِلِينَ Allah sets forth an example to those who disbelieve the wife of Nuh and the wife of Lut: they were both under two of Our righteous servants, but they acted treacherously towards them so they availed them naught against Allah, and it was said: Enter both the fire with those who enter. (English - Shakir)
  5. Assalato wassalamo ala Sayyedil Anbiya-e-wal Mursaleen wa ala Aalehe Tahireen. Allahumma Sallay Ala Muhammad Wa Aalay Muhammad Wa Ajjil Farajahum
  6. "Alladhina" of sura e fatiha & "walladhina" of sura e furqan are very important in answering your question: Surah Al-Furqan, Verse 74: وَالَّذِينَ يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَا هَبْ لَنَا مِنْ أَزْوَاجِنَا وَذُرِّيَّاتِنَا قُرَّةَ أَعْيُنٍ وَاجْعَلْنَا لِلْمُتَّقِينَ إِمَامًا And they who say: O our Lord! grant us in our wives and our offspring the joy of our eyes, and make us guides to those who guard (against evil). (English - Shakir) Do some research, find out these alladhina & walladhina. Truth is hidden within them & humans have the capacity to get to the truth.
  7. Is it allowed to look right & left while offering salam? I think it is wajib to keep our faces towards qibla while reciting the salam.
  8. If we see the subject verse in light of following verse, Surah Al-Ankaboot, Verse 20: قُلْ سِيرُوا فِي الْأَرْضِ فَانظُرُوا كَيْفَ بَدَأَ الْخَلْقَ ثُمَّ اللَّهُ يُنشِئُ النَّشْأَةَ الْآخِرَةَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ Say: Travel in the earth and see how He makes the first creation, then Allah creates the latter creation; surely Allah has power over all things. (English - Shakir) It looks that Allah is mentioning the evolution of life in the subject verse i.e., 56:62!
  9. Surah Al-Waqia, Verse 62: وَلَقَدْ عَلِمْتُمُ النَّشْأَةَ الْأُولَىٰ فَلَوْلَا تَذَكَّرُونَ And certainly you know the first growth, why do you not then mind? (English - Shakir) Which first growth, this verse is mentioning? The growth of fetus? Or the evolution of life on earth? Or it is talking about youm e alast? I think this verse is talking about the growth of fetus because of the subject matter of earlier verses: Surah Al-Waqia, Verse 58-61: أَفَرَأَيْتُم مَّا تُمْنُونَ أَأَنتُمْ تَخْلُقُونَهُ أَمْ نَحْنُ الْخَالِقُونَ نَحْنُ قَدَّرْنَا بَيْنَكُمُ الْمَوْتَ وَمَا نَحْنُ بِمَسْبُوقِينَ عَلَىٰ أَن نُّبَدِّلَ أَمْثَالَكُمْ وَنُنشِئَكُمْ فِي مَا لَا تَعْلَمُونَ The last verse strongly points towards evolution (change) but for that we have to pass through death.
  10. حیدریم قلندرم مستم بندہ مرتضٰی علی ہستم
  11. Surah Ash-Shuara, Verse 227: وَسَيَعْلَمُ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا أَيَّ مُنقَلَبٍ يَنقَلِبُونَ and they who act unjustly shall know to what final place of turning they shall turn back. (English - Shakir)
  12. Allahumma Sallay ala Muhammad Wa Aalay Muhammad Wa Ajjil Farajahum.
  13. More from "It is mentioned in one report that the Holy Prophet (S) laid siege to Taif for around thirty days and after that he returned. Then the people of Taif came and embraced Islam. Shaykh Tusi has narrated through authentic chains of narrators from Abu Dharr that the Messenger of Allah (S) said that when the messengers of people of Taif arrived and I said that they must establish prayer and pay Zakat or “I will send to them one who is like my self, who loves Allah and His Messenger and Allah and His Messenger love him. He will strike off your heads,” companions craned their necks in anticipation but I held aloft the hand of Amirul Momineen (a.s.) and said: “He is the one.” Abu Bakr and Umar said: “I have never seen this excellence in anyone.” Shia and Sunni scholars have mentioned that Imam Ali (a.s.) said on the Shura along with his other merits that: I adjure you before Allah, did the Messenger of Allah (S) say about anyone that: Bani Waliya should refrain from hostilities or I will send to them who is like my self. His obedience is my obedience and his disobedience is my disobedience." One who will make them obey through the sword.” All Shura members said: “None of us is like that.” Then he said: I adjure you before Allah, is there anyone among you like me, to whom the Prophet spoke secretly on the day of the Battle of Taif and Abu Bakr and Umar had told him: “You speak to Ali in secret and conceal it from us.” And the Prophet had told them: “I did not say anything of my own. The Almighty Allah had ordered me to do so.” All said: “None of us is like that.” Anyone knows the references of these two traditions?
  14. In Tafsir Ibn-e-Kathir, I got the following words of Prophet: "Messenger of Allah was declaring his name aloud and saying, «إِلَيَّ عِبَادَ اللهِ إِلَيَ أَنَا رَسُولُ الله» O servants of Allah! Come back to me! I am the Messenger of Allah! He repeated these words, «أَنَا النَّبِيُّ لَاكَذِبْ. أَنَا ابْنُ عَبْدِالْمُطَّلِب» I am the Prophet, not lying! I am the son of Abdul-Muttalib!" Why the Prophet (PBUH) needed to say that he is not lying? Did the companions who ran away from the battle field said him a liar? mentions this: "Shia and Sunni have through many channels narrated from Jabir bin Abdullah Ansari that when the Messenger of Allah (S) was conferring with Amirul Momineen (a.s.), Umar came and said: “You talk secretly to him and keep us aloof?” the Messenger of Allah (S) said: “I am not telling him the secrets, the Almighty Allah is.” Umar returned infuriated saying: “This is also like he said on the day of Hudaibiya that we will enter Masjidul Haram, but we returned from there without it.” The Holy Prophet (S) said: “I never said that we will enter it the same year.”
  15. There is an important lesson for the students of fiqh, i guess. It shows when ignorant do ijtihad, what happen. Khairil Amal (best of deed) limited to Khayrun min al-nawn (better than sleep). Prophet has declared Prayers as "Mairaaj of momin", this makes it "khairil amal". There are traditions which shows that someone's strike is better than the ibadat of thaqalain, there are conditions where someone's sleep is equals to as he prayed the whole night etc. The pharase "prayer is better than sleep" indicates that whoever had included it in adhan, was ignorant of Islam & teachings/sayings of Prophet (pbuh).
