  1. As-Salamu Alaykum Everyone, I hope everyone is in good health. I think this topic is very clear. It has been proven through Shamail Tirmidhil that Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Salam) wore a ring. Now the point at hand about gemstones. We should first have firm yaqeen (belief) that Allah (Subhanahu wa ta'ala) has power over all things. Everything is His (Subhanahu wa ta'ala) creation and He (Subhanahu wa ta'ala) is the creator. Now I view gemstones can have benefits. The reason being, if we look at things around us, like the food we eat. We know that Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì has put the properties of what we call calories, protein, vitamins, etc. These in turn help the body do its bodily functions. Does that mean that eating food is shirk since it has health properties? Furthermore, if Allah (Subhanahu wa ta'ala) wishes he can put any power into stones or anything He (Subhanahu wa ta'ala) with His (Subhanahu wa ta'ala)infinite wisdom. The same way we read surah falaq and surah nas at night to protect us from the devil? Here is the hadith: Prophet (s.a.w) said " should i inform you of the best refuge which the person who seeks refuge takes? They (Sahabas) said "Of course Messenger of Allah" He (s.a.w) said " Al Falaq & Al Naas - these two Surahs [ Al Saheeha :1104]Link: http://the-finalrevelation.blogspot.com/2012/08/weak-and-sahih-virtues-of-surahs.html Now, if we see the hadith it says the best refuge. We would say Allah (Subhanahu wa ta'ala) is, correct? Which He (Subhanahu wa ta'ala) is. But look at the wording of the hadith, it is surah falaq and surah nas. Shocking? Is it shirk? No, it is not. Because we see that these meaning the surahs are the words of Allah (Subhanahu wa ta'ala) so why dont we see the Prophet Muhamamd (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Salam) saying just rely directly on Allah (Subhanahu wa ta'ala). Because you are if you see it with the right perspective. The surahs are the words of Allah (Subhanahu wa ta'ala) and keeping that in my mind is it not possible for Allah (Subhanahu wa ta'ala) to bestow powers into His (Subhanahu wa ta'ala) words? The same way we can read SubhanAllahi Wa Bihamdihi 100 times and all of our minor sins are cleaned off. So does that mean the dhikr is removing or Allah (Subhanahu wa ta'ala) ? It is Allah (Subhanahu wa ta'ala) removing your sins but he made a way of doing it which, in this case is to read SubhanaAllahi Wa BiHamdihi 100 times. This was just my opinion. InshaAllah please pray for me and let's keep harmony between everyone no matter if you are sunni or shia, Muslim or non-Muslim. Walaykum As-Salam
  2. Salam, I hope everyone is doing well and trying to raise his/her iman. We have to remember what is a naqsh in the first place. A naqsh (taweez) very simply can be thought of as a key. Now the key doesn't hold power and those that believe the key gives power from it directly, of course has committed shirk. But remember the other people who view a key as simply as just a key will know that it cannot do anything but can unlock something. The taweez is a key to unlocking or granting Allah (SWT) power for whatever like protection in the same way we read surah falaq and sura nas and "blow" on ourselves to protect from evil influences. I personally don't believe that any creation knows the future unless Allah (SWT) grants him/her the power to do so. About controlling jinns. There are secrets which cannot be opened here. But what I can say about controlling jinns is that we don't look at jinns as the ultimate power to do grant wishes or save us from death. Is going to the bank or asking your human friend shirk? Yes, first you solely put your trust in Allah (SWT) and then use the means he has provided for you. The fasting aspect is just a way to raise your spirituality levels higher. There are no prayers done to the jinns but whatever you read is to Allah (SWT) so he can grant you the ability to control or make friends. I am not the most knowledgeable in this topic but I hope that looking at it in a positive way will change how people think about jinns. If we look at sunni sources, ibn taymiyyah, famous scholar has stated: Humans who utilize Jinn to do what has been forbidden by Allaah The Almighty and His Prophet; for example, acts of polytheism, killing an innocent person, causing someone to become ill, or forget knowledge, or facilitating acts of unlawful sexual affairs; they are using Jinn for sin and aggression. A human who employs them in an act of disbelief is a disbeliever. If any human being uses them to commit acts of disobedience, he would be disobedient to Allaah The Almighty -- no matter if he is a believer or disbeliever, he would still be sinful. Those who claim to use Jinn may be liars who want to frighten some people or get some advantages or money. Those who are not lying can be judged according to what they use them for; If they used them in an act of obedience, such as teaching a Muslim Jinn Sharee‘ah knowledge in order to convey it to Jinn or to do some acts required by Sharee‘ah, this would be recommended. This is a type of Da‘wah (call to Islam). Jinn came to the Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, and he read the Quran to them. When they returned to their people, they warned them and asked them to be Muslims. Some Jinn are righteous, worshippers, ascetics and scholars. Those that are scholars preach to others . However, there are a very small number of Jinn scholars. If they are used in permissible acts, this would be permissible as long as the means is permissible. If the means is impermissible, using them is impermissible, because some Jinn insist that a Muslim must do an act of Shirk (polytheism), for example, slaughtering, bowing, or prostrating to the Jinn. If they are used for impermissible acts, such as theft or terrorism, this would be impermissible. If the means was impermissible or Shirk, then this would likewise be impermissible or Shirk. Most of those who employ Jinn are evil people who commit major sins; neglectful of prayer and, enjoy being near Najaasah (ritual impurity) and dirty places. They are also liars and thieves. They use talismans, slaughter animals for Jinn and do Istinjaa’ (cleaning after relieving oneself) using milk. Muslims must stay away from such charlatans, yet scholars and righteous people must advise them to give up what they do, or even report them to the authorities. Allaah Knows best. full link: http://www.islamweb.net/emainpage/PrintFatwa.php?lang=E&Id=5701 And that will it be it for now on my part. Allah (SWT) knows best.
  3. Salam, My grandfathers name was Mohammad Saeed Quraishi. He changed his last name to Syed. All of his siblings changed their last name to Syed too. But one of his brother changed to Hashmi. Now my grandfather's name became Mohammad Saeed Syed. I really want to know my shijra (lineage). I know that my family inter married. Oral tradition of our family goes back to Bukhara in Uzbekistan. I believe after Bukhara they traveled to Balkh in Afghanistan and then ended in Amritsar. My great-grand fathers name that people called him was Ghulam Rasool. From my mother side they call their family Husseini and my grandmother from my mother's side told me that they are descended from Ali ibn Husayn (Zaynul ‘Ābidīn). I would like to know more about my family tree from my fathers side. Thank-you, Ahmed Syed
  4. Salam,
