Koran Lecture Part 17 - Urdu



O Children of Adam! wear your beautiful apparel at every time and place of prayer: eat and drink: But waste not by excess, for Allah loveth not the wasters.
يَـبَنِى ءَادَمَ خُذُواْ زِينَتَكُمْ عِندَ كُلِّ مَسْجِدٍ وكُلُواْ وَاشْرَبُواْ وَلاَ تُسْرِفُواْ إِنَّهُ لاَ يُحِبُّ الْمُسْرِفِينَ
"There were people who used to perform Tawaf around the House while naked, and Allah ordered them to take adornment, meaning, wear clean, proper clothes that cover the private parts. people were commanded to wear their best clothes when performing every prayer.''
Mujahid, Ata', Ibrahim An-Nakha`i, Sa`id bin Jubayr, Qatadah, As-Suddi, Ad-Dahhak and Malik narrated a similar saying from Az-Zuhri, and from several of the Salaf. They said that;
this Ayah was revealed about the idolators who used to perform Tawaf around the House while naked.
This Ayah, as well as the Sunnah, encourage wearing the best clothes when praying, especially for Friday and `Id prayers.
It is also recommended (for men) to wear perfume for prayer, because it is adornment, and to use Siwak for it is part of what completes adornment.
The best color for clothes is white, for Imam Ahmad narrated that Ibn Abbas said that the Messenger of Allah said,
الْبَسُوا مِنْ ثِيَابِكُمُ الْبَيَاضَ فَإِنَّهَا مِنْ خَيْرِ ثِيَابِكُمْ، وَكَفِّنُوا فِيهَا مَوْتَاكُمْ وَإِنَّ خَيْرَ أَكْحَالِكُمُ الْإثْمَدُ فَإِنَّهُ يَجْلُو الْبَصَرَ وَيُنْبِتُ الشَّعَر
Wear white clothes, for it is among your best clothes, and also wrap your dead with it. And Ithmid (antimony) is among the best of your Kuhl, for it clears the sight and helps the hair grow.
This Hadith has a sound chain of narration, consisting of narrators who conform to the conditions and guidelines of Imam Muslim.
Abu Dawud, At-Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah also recorded it, and At-Tirmidhi said, "Hasan Sahih.''
And eat and drink but waste not by extravagance,
Al-Bukhari said that Ibn Abbas said,
"Eat what you wish and wear what you wish, as long as you avoid two things: extravagance and arrogance.''
Ibn Jarir said that Muhammad bin Abdul-A`la narrated to us that Muhammad bin Thawr narrated to us from Ma`mar from Ibn Tawus from his father who said that Ibn Abbas said,
"Allah has allowed eating and drinking, as long as it does not contain extravagance or arrogance.''
This chain is Sahih.
Imam Ahmad recorded that Al-Miqdam bin Ma`dikarib Al-Kindi said that he heard the Messenger of Allah saying,
مَا مَلَأَ ابْنُ آدَمَ وِعَاءً شَرًّا مِنْ بَطْنِهِ بِحَسْبِ ابْنِ آدَمَ أَكَلَاتٍ يُقِمْنَ صُلْبَهُ فَإِنْ كَانَ فَاعِلًا لَا مَحَالَةَ فَثُلُثٌ طَعَامٌ وَثُلُثٌ شَرَابٌ وَثُلُثٌ لِنَفَسِه
The Son of Adam will not fill a pot worse for himself than his stomach. It is enough for the Son of Adam to eat a few bites that strengthens his spine. If he likes to have more, then let him fill a third with food, a third with drink and leave a third for his breathing.
An-Nasa'i and At-Tirmidhi collected this Hadith, At-Tirmidhi said, "Hasan'' or "Hasan Sahih'' according to another manuscript.
Ata Al-Khurasani said that Ibn Abbas commented on the Ayah,
And eat and drink but waste not by extravagance, certainly He (Allah) likes not the wasteful.
"With food and drink.''
Certainly He (Allah) likes not the wasteful.
Ibn Jarir commented on Allah's statement,
"Allah the Exalted says that He does not like those who trespass the limits on an allowed matter or a prohibited matter, those who go to the extreme over what He has allowed, allow what He has prohibited, or prohibit what He has allowed. But, He likes that what He has allowed be considered as such (without extravagance) and what He has prohibited be considered as such. This is the justice that He has commanded.''

As-Sadaqât (here it means Zakât) are only for the Fuqarâ'[] (poor), and Al-Masâkin[] (the poor) and those employed to collect (the funds); and for to attract the hearts of those who have been inclined (towards Islâm); and to free the captives; and for those in debt; and for Allâh's Cause (i.e. for Mujâhidûn - those fighting in the holy wars), and for the wayfarer (a traveller who is cut off from everything); a duty imposed by Allâh. And Allâh is All-Knower, All-Wise.

Traps of Satan (Urdu Speech)



1) The reason of the enmity of Satan to Aadam and Eve.
2) The importance of knowing the traps of Satan to avoid them.
3) The traps of Satan include:
a. Kufr (disbelief).
b. Innovations.
c. Following ones desires.
d. Taking and giving Islamic judgments without knowledge.
e. Stinginess and fear of poverty.
f. Anger.
g. Extravagance and negligence.
4) The way to salvation from the traps of Satan.
5) Advises and warning against some of Satan’s ways.
Fear Allah! Servants of Allah, for everything we do will be accounted for, each soul is going to come to an end at a prescribed time, and you will be dealt with according to your deeds.
O Muslims, Allah Azza Wa Tabaraka says which translates as: "O Children of Adam let not Satan tempt you, as he removed your parents from paradise, stripping them of their clothing to show them their private parts, indeed he sees you, he and his tribes, from where you do not see them. Indeed we have made the devils, allies to those who do not believe" (Al-A'raf: 27).
Satan has practiced his tricks, and temptations starting with our noble and kind parents - Adam (Alaihi Salam) and his wife Eve. It was a great trial, motivated by envy and anger, as Allah says which translates as: "Iblis said, do you see this one, whom you have honored above me?” (Al-Israa’: 62). Satan was also motivated by arrogance, and pride as Allah tells us, which translates as: "…Except for Iblis, Satan, he refused and was arrogant and became of the disbeliveers and he tricked them, by falsely swearing to them" (Al-Baqarah: 34).
Allah says which translates as: "And he swore by Allah to them indeed I am to you from among the sincere advisers, and corrupt measures" (Al-A’raf: 21). As he said which Allah mentions in Suratul A’raf, Satan said which translates as: " I am better than him, you created me from fire and created him from clay"(Al-A'raf: 12).
It is a great trial and a big problem when the power of Iblis (Satan) becomes great. He deceives the hearts, minds and the feelings of men in an aggressive battle, that has ‘roaring sounds’ and foot soldiers and horses that are brought for combat. Allah describes in Suratul Isra’, which translates as: "And deceive whoever you can among them with your voice, and assault them with your horses, and foot soldiers, and become a partner in their wealth, and their children, and promise them. But Satan doesn't promise them except delusion"(Al-Isra’: 64).
Brothers in Islam, understand these types of tricks from Satan and ponder upon his satanic plans, this is something that is extremely important as it shows the wrong way and the way of salvation; for Allah has guided to both ways and made both paths clear.
Beloved brothers, Satan approaches mankind focusing on his weaknesses. If Satan was expelled out of Jannah (paradise) because of his envy, Adam was kicked out (as is the opinion of some scholars), because of his desire and greed to eternally stay in paradise.
The steps of Satan in tempting mankind gradate until the son of Adam, worships Satan besides Allah. Allah Subhanahu Wa Taala says which translates as: "Did I not enjoined upon you, O Children of Adam that you not worship Satan, indeed he is to you a clear enemy"(Ya Sin: 60), and Allah says which translates as "O My father don't worship Satan, indeed Satan has ever been to the most merciful disobedient"(Maryam: 44).
This happens to a servant when he surrenders leadership to this enemy, when he allows his desires to go unchecked. So he follows every rebellious devil, as Allah says which translates as: "It has been decreed for him, that whoever turns to him, meaning Satan, he will misguide him and will lead him to the punishment of the blaze"(Al-Hajj: 4).
In the Hadith, found in the books of Imam An-Nisa’i and Ahmad, the Prophet (Salla Allahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, "Satan sat, waiting for the son of Adam in all his pathways. He sat for him on the path of Islam and he said do you become a Muslim and leave the religion of your fathers and grand fathers? And after this temptation to become a disbeliever, there are different ways where he takes the sons of Adam into innovation, desires and doubts".
How many worshipers are deceived and confused by some of the doubts and attractive temptations from Satan that leads them to misguidance and results in them saying things about Allah which they do not know, as Allah says which translates as: "And do not follow the footsteps of Satan, indeed he is to you a clear enemy. He only orders you to evil and immorality, and to say about Allah what you do not know"(Al-Baqarah: 168-169).
Yes O Brothers to say about Allah what you do not know, is following the footsteps of Satan, and it's the basis of polluting and corrupting one's faith and fabricating in the rulings of Islam.
We observe that some people hastily give their opinions in some areas of knowledge that they know little about. Areas of knowledge that they have not mastered yet they bravely give out Fatawas without a deep understanding of the subject. They do this until they reach a stage of evil, telling complete lies and fabrications. Then Satan descends upon them as Allah Subhanahu Wa Taala says which translates as: "Shall I inform you upon whom the devils descends, they descend upon every sinful liar and they will not be calling for guidance, nor be commanding to piety, nor will they guide to the truth"(Ash-Shu’ara: 221-222). This is the objective of Satan, hastiness, as in the Hadith found in the book of Imam Abu Yaala and Baiyhaqi. The Prophet (Salla Allahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) said as reported by Anas Ibn Malik "Patience is from Allah and hastiness is from Satan". After which, Satan attacks through the desires, the nature and the habits of man - for miserliness, fear of poverty, are weapons of Satan.
Sufiyan Al-Thoury says regarding that, "Satan doesn't have a weapon against mankind, like fear of poverty".
Therefore, this whispering comes to the heart of a human being, who becomes deprived of the truth, listening to his desires, and who becomes doubtful of his Lord. Our Lord says which translates as: "Satan threatens you with poverty and orders you to immorality while Allah promises you forgiveness from him and bounty. And Allah is all encompassing and knowing"(Al-Baqarah: 268).
O Brothers anger is an act of rebellious of the mind and for those who are with sound minds and wisdom, anger causes a loss of equilibrium. It is reported, that some of the Prophets said to Iblis. "By what did you defeat the son of Adam?” He said, "At the time of anger and at the time of desire".
A man from Quraish spoke very harshly to Umar Ibn Abdulaziz. Therefore, Umar paused for a while then said: " You want Satan to intimidate me with the might of my power, so I harm you today and then you harm me tomorrow", meaning the Day of Judgment.
As for false and deceiving hopes and arrogance, which are sharp weapons of Satan, Allah says which translates as: "He (Satan) promises them and arouses desire in them, but Satan doesn't promise them except delusions"(An-Nisa’: 120).
Allah says, which translates as: "… But I had no authority over you except that I invited you, and you responded to me, so don't blame me, but blame yourselves…”(Ibrahim: 22).
Allah says, which translates as: "…. But when the two armies sighted each other, he turned on his heals, meaning Satan, and said indeed, I am disassociated from you…”(Al-Anfal: 48). He promises them, this deceiver according to their natures and their habits. He attracts them to his traps depending on the strength of their desires. He threatens the rich and makes them fear poverty, if they were intending to give charity and act generously. He makes wealth seem attractive and seeking it through unlawful and immoral means.
He makes desirable and pleasing for the people of different sects the discrimination and degradation of others, making it appear to them as though this is eagerness in seeking knowledge and expressing love of the people of knowledge whom they follow.
The life of the son of Adam passes while he is swimming in an ocean of hopes, while he is indulged on the road of misguidance. Satan promises him falsehood, promises him things that are impossible. The weak soul lives on this promise and enjoys this falsehood and rejoices as young children rejoice (i.e. without thinking of the consequences).
Being neglectful and extreme are two ‘weapons’ of Iblis. Some of the Salaf use to say, “There is not a command from Allah, but Satan has two ways about it, either he makes a person neglect the command of Allah which is a short coming or transgress it, which is an exaggeration".
Iblis does not care which one of the two ‘weapons’ is successful; he sets his traps between these two.
A group of people exaggerated with their Prophets and their followers until they worship them, and others were neglectful until they killed them. They killed those who commanded people to be just.
A group exaggerated regarding their scholars and their righteous people and others neglected them and turned the other way. If you look at the Islamic Rulings, you see a group of people neglecting them, making shortcomings regarding obligations related to purification, and others exaggerating and becoming extreme.
A group of people made their concern and objectives the attainment of knowledge and neglected implementation and practice of that knowledge. Others neglected obligations that they should be aware of and never studied it. As for deeds and actions of the heart, such as fear, humbleness, and repentance, etc., people falling under the control of Satan, neglect these deeds and actions of the heart and do not pay attention to them, thinking them to be unessential. Satan influences other groups, of the opposite side, making them neglect action and physical deeds claiming them to be rejected and dropped from worship and need not be practiced. As Allah Subhanahu Wa Taala says which translates as: "Satan enticed them and prolong hope for them"(Muhammad: 25).
Allah Subhanahu Wa Taala says which translates as: "And he whom Satan is a companion, then evil is he as a companion"(An-Nisa’: 38).
Allah says which translates as: " And indeed they avert them from the way of guidance while they think that they are rightly guided. The worst that the companion or the devilish companion would do is to avert someone from the truth. And not allow them to wake up to find out the truth, rather deceives him and makes him think that he is on the right path until painful fate and destiny takes him by surprise "(Az-Zukhruf: 37).
Allah Subhanahu Wa Taala says which translates as: “Indeed they had taken the devils as allies instead of Allah while they thought they were guided" (Al-A'raf: 30).
O Muslims, this cursed one - Satan, has taken a covenant upon himself to sit for the son of Adam on all his paths.
Allah says translates as: " Satan said, because you have put me in error, I will surely sit and wait for them on your straight path, then I will come to them from before them and from behind them, and on their right and on their left and you will not find most of them grateful to you"(Al-A’raf: 16-17).
He threatened and promised to do that, but his plan and his evil are weak and his plotting will fail.
If the servant equips himself with the ‘weapons’ of faith and pure belief and is enthusiastic in acts of worship of his Lord and relies on his Lord as Allah says which translates as: "Indeed there is for him no authority over those who have believed and relied upon their Lord"(An-Nahl: 99).
He has neither authority nor power over the sincere people who embrace Islamic monotheism, but he has great power and authority for those who take him as allies and disbelieve in Allah.
Allah says which translates as: "Did you not see that we have sent the devils upon the disbelievers inciting them to evil with constant incitement” (Maryam: 83). If it happens that this enemy of Allah – Satan went on to try to make his promise come true, he has no way, power, or control over the slaves of Allah who have submitted to the Most Merciful Lord.
Allah says which translates as: "Indeed over my believing servants there is for you no authority"(Al-Isra’: 65).O Brothers, as clear and as obvious as it is, some believers might slip and fall, thus becoming affected by Satan, his heart becoming afflicted with the whispers of Satan. However, as soon as he seeks the help of his Lord and rushes to Him, remembers Him, and repents to Him, immediately Satan retreats.
Allah says which translates as: "Indeed those who fear Allah when an impulse touches them from Satan they remember him and at once they have insight"(An-A'raf: 201). Their strong bond and relation with their Lord protects them, from following their enemy and the enemy of Allah.
The believer rids himself of the whispers and temptations of Satan by the remembrance of Allah, seeking His help and asking for refuge in Him from Satan.
Allah says which translates as: "And if it comes to you from Satan and evil suggestion then seek refuge in Allah. Indeed he is the All Hearing and All Knowing"(Fussilat: 36).
O Brothers, it is mandatory upon him who wants good for himself, protection for his faith, and defeat for Satan to look with insight, and not with lust, desire, and greed, and to take and maintain the path of piety and knowledge.
Al-Hassan (Rahimallah) said, "Two things concerns the heart, the concern of Allah, and the concern of the enemy. May Allah have mercy upon a slave, who monitors these concerns. So whatever comes from Allah he complies with it, and whatever comes from the enemy he strives against it and avoids it".
Allah says which translates as: "O Mankind indeed the promise of Allah is the truth so let not worldly life delude you and be not deceived about Allah by the deceiver (Satan). Indeed Satan is an enemy to you so take him as an enemy. He only invites his party to be among the companions of the blaze (Fatir: 5-6).
O Muslims, these are some directions from the Prophet Muhammad (Salla Allahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) to guide, and warn against the traps of Satan.
In the book of Imam Muslim, Ibn Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhu) reports that: The Prophet (Salla Allahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) said; "No one should eat with his left hand, nor drink with his left hand, because Satan eats and drinks with his left hand".
In the books of Al Imam Abu Dawud, Nisa’i and Ahmad, Abu Darda (Radhi Allahu Anhu) reports, saying I heard the messenger of Allah (Salla Allahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) saying: "There is not three people in a village or in desert who do not perform prayers, but Satan has got control over them. So stick to the congregation, for the wolf only eats or attacks sheep that are alone".
Qartada (Radhi Allahu Anhu) reports in the Hadeeth found in the books of Bukhari and Muslim, that the Prophet (Salla Allahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) said: "A good dream is from Allah and an evil dream is from Satan, so whoever sees something that he hates, let him blow on his left side three times, wet blows, and ask refugee in Allah from Satan. And that dream will never hurt him, and Satan cannot resemble me in dreams".
In the book of Al Imam Muslim, Abu Said (Radhi Allahu Anhu) reports that the Prophet (Salla Allahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) said: "When one of you yawns, let him put his hand on his mouth, otherwise Satan will enter".
In another Hadith also found in the book of Al Imam Muslim, the Prophet (Salla Allahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) said: "The strong believer is better and more beloved to Allah than a weak believer and they are both good, be eager to achieve all that benefits you and ask Allah's help and support and don't give up". If something happens to you that you do not like, do not say if I would have done such and such, it could have been such and such, rather say this is a decree of Allah and he did what he will. So the word "IF", which is "Lauw" in Arabic, opens the gate for Satan.
So fear Allah, May Allah be merciful to you and seek refuge in your Lord, Allah, from Satan and his evil traps.

Koran Lecture Part 12 - Urdu



Wealth and sons are allurements of the life of this world: But the things that endure, good deeds, are best in the sight of thy Lord, as rewards, and best as (the foundation for) hopes. (46)
Zeenah” is that which one decorates and beautifies themselves with. Wealth and children are the zeenah of this dunya, not the hereafter. They are not a means of success; unless used in the right way. Children and wealth are taken as the adornment of this life, but we hardly think about using them in the way for the aakhirah.
On the other hand, the baaqiyaat as-saalihaat are what remains. The good righteous deeds are what remain, and are what last. They do not get wasted or nullified when someone dies, rather they take them to success in the hereafter.
One opinion of “baaqiyaat as-saalihaat” is the adkhaar (remembrances), SubhanAllah, Alhamdulillah, La ilaaha il Allah, wAllahu akbar, because when you receive wealth and children, you are diverted from the remembrance of Allah.
If you notice this ayah; Allah ta’ala mentions specifically that children and wealth are adornments, yet ‘baaqiyaat as-saalihaat‘ is left general: because there are so many deeds one can do.
ibn Abbaas radi Allahu anhuma holds the opinion that the five prayers are baaqiyaat as-saalihaat. Other opinions:
1- kalimah tayyiah: good words
2- any remembrances of Allah
3- in general, any good deeds, big or small.
Allah ta’ala ends the ayah by saying it is “khayrun ‘inda Rabbika thawaaban”, they are best in the sight of your Rabb as reward: sometimes we cannot see the benefits of our work in this dunya, so we must know that with Allah ta’ala is our reward…and not just any reward, khayran, better reward.
Allah ta’ala ends the ayah by saying it is “khayrun amala“–it is better in hopes! It is better to hope for  “baaqiyaat as-saalihaat“, and they are worthy of being hoped for. It is better to have expectations in the good deeds because that is what will have results in the hereafter.
Righteous deeds is what will benefit us in the hereafter, not our wealth or children, but what we did in this life for the hereafter. Our real expectations should be with our deeds, because on the day of Judgment, saalihaat will be a better means for us.
Allah ta’ala will not decrease your reward of your righteous deeds; nor will He forget anything you have done. We must have firm belief in this and have good expectations for doing good deeds.

Koran Lecture Part 11 - Urdu



During the day numerous affairs occupy the time and mind of the human being. In the midst of all this preoccupation, it is difficult to have the peace of mind and heart so necessary for good worship. But at night when it is dark and silent, when the demands of the material world are quiet for a while, the human being can acquire a tranquil state which allows him to be in harmony with his Creator.
It is at this time that the human being acquires a special state of mind and energy which is very conducive to increasing his spirituality and strengthening the connection with his Creator. That is why the friends of Allah, and those who seek nearness to Him, always make the most of the last part of the night. They purify their souls, enliven their hearts, strengthen their will, and perfect their sincerity, through worship at this special time.
There are many verses of the Holy Qur’an which talk about the importance of Salatul Layl (Night Prayers), also referred to as Qiyam u Layl. These verses describe it as the practice of the pious people, and the means to attain closeness to Allah. Those who wish to attain this nearness forego a part of their sleep, and wake up early to seek forgiveness from Allah. They sacrifice their sleep and comfort for the pleasure of reciting Salatul Layl.
In many verses of the Qur’an, Allah enjoins the rising by the night for glorification and worship of Allah. He says:
وَمِنَ اللَّيْلِ فَسَبِّحْهُ وَإِدْبَارَ النُّجُومِ
And in the night, give Him glory too, and at the setting of the stars (52:49)
He also says:
وَمِنَ اللَّيْلِ فَاسْجُدْ لَهُ وَسَبِّحْهُ لَيْلًا طَوِيلاً
And during part of the night adore Him, and give glory to Him (for a) long (part of the) night (76:26)
Allah says about those who rise at night:
كَانُوا قَلِيلاً مِّنَ اللَّيْلِ مَا يَهْجَعُونَ
وَبِالْأَسْحَارِ هُمْ يَسْتَغْفِرُونَ
They used to sleep but little in the night. And in the early part of the morning they asked forgiveness. (51: 16–17)
In another verse He says:
تَتَجَافَى جُنُوبُهُمْ عَنِ الْمَضَاجِعِ يَدْعُونَ رَبَّهُمْ خَوْفًا وَطَمَعًا وَمِمَّا رَزَقْنَاهُمْ يُنفِقُونَ فَلاَ تَعْلَمُ نَفْسٌ مَّا أُخْفِيَ لَهُم مِّن قُرَّةِ أَعْيُنٍ جَزَاءً بِمَا كَانُوا يَعْمَلُونَ
Their sides draw away from (their) beds, they call upon their Lord in fear and in hope, and they spend (benevolently) out of what We have given them So no soul knows what is hidden for them of that which will refresh the eyes; a reward for what they did. (32: 16–17)
Therefore, the reward for those who rise by night to glorify Allah cannot be described. As the Holy prophet (s) has said:There is no good deed except that its reward has been outlined in the Qur’an, except Salatul Layl. Almighty Allah has not specified its reward due to its greatness with Him.
In yet another verse Allah describes the effect of reciting Salatul Layl for the believer. He says:
وَمِنَ اللَّيْلِ فَتَهَجَّدْ بِهِ نَافِلَةً لَّكَ عَسَى أَن يَبْعَثَكَ رَبُّكَ مَقَامًا مَّحْمُودًا
And during a part of the night, pray Tahajjud beyond what is incumbent on you; maybe your Lord will raise you to a position of great glory. (17:79)
In this verse Almighty Allah describes the extraordinary spiritual effects of reciting Salatul layl. It raises the human being toMaqame Mahmood, a position of glory and praise. It is an elevated position with Allah, one that few people can attain.
Salatul Layl is thus one of the most effective ways of achieving closeness to Allah. That is why Allah says in Sura al-Muzammil (#73):
إِنَّ نَاشِئَةَ اللَّيْلِ هِيَ أَشَدُّ وَطْءًا وَأَقْوَمُ قِيلاً
Surely the rising by night is the firmest way to tread and the best corrective of speech. (73:6)
The first Qiyam was on Friday June 26, 2009 starting at 2:30 AM. Since then, this tradition of encouraging each other to wake up before Fajr and come pray in the tranquility of the night was maintained by the few. It continues today every other Saturday. You do not have to come to the mosque, you can do it at your own privacy and pace and however you feel active and energetic for connecting with God.

Koran Lecture Part 9 - Urdu



Those who unjustly eat up the property of orphans, eat up a Fire into their own bodies: They will soon be enduring a Blazing Fire! [4:10]
(Their bearings) on this life and the Hereafter. They ask thee concerning orphans. Say: "The best thing to do is what is for their good; if ye mix their affairs with yours, they are your brethren; but Allah knows the man who means mischief from the man who means good. And if Allah had wished, He could have put you into difficulties: He is indeed Exalted in Power, Wise."[2:220]
Make trial of orphans until they reach the age of marriage; if then ye find sound judgment in them, release their property to them; but consume it not wastefully, nor in haste against their growing up. If the guardian is well-off, Let him claim no remuneration, but if he is poor, let him have for himself what is just and reasonable. When ye release their property to them, take witnesses in their presence: But all-sufficient is Allah in taking account. [4:6]
To orphans restore their property (When they reach their age), nor substitute (your) worthless things for (their) good ones; and devour not their substance (by mixing it up) with your own. For this is indeed a great sin. [4:2]
They ask thee what they should spend (In charity). Say: Whatever ye spend that is good, is for parents and kindred and orphans and those in want and for wayfarers. And whatever ye do that is good, -(Allah) knoweth it well.[2:215]
But if at the time of division other relatives, or orphans or poor, are present, feed them out of the (property), and speak to them words of kindness and justice. [4:8]
They ask thy instruction concerning the women say: Allah doth instruct you about them: And (remember) what hath been rehearsed unto you in the Book, concerning the orphans of women to whom ye give not the portions prescribed, and yet whom ye desire to marry, as also concerning the children who are weak and oppressed: that ye stand firm for justice to orphans. There is not a good deed which ye do, but Allah is well-acquainted therewith. [4:127]
If ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly with the orphans, Marry women of your choice, Two or three or four; but if ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one, or (a captive) that your right hands possess, that will be more suitable, to prevent you from doing injustice. [4:3]
Serve Allah, and join not any partners with Him; and do good- to parents, kinsfolk, orphans, those in need, neighbours who are near, neighbours who are strangers, the companion by your side, the wayfarer (ye meet), and what your right hands possess: For Allah loveth not the arrogant, the vainglorious;- [4:36]
And know that out of all the booty that ye may acquire (in war), a fifth share is assigned to Allah,- and to the Messenger, and to near relatives, orphans, the needy, and the wayfarer,- if ye do believe in Allah and in the revelation We sent down to Our servant on the Day of Testing,- the Day of the meeting of the two forces. For Allah hath power over all things. [8:41]
What Allah has bestowed on His Messenger (and taken away) from the people of the townships,- belongs to Allah,- to His Messenger and to kindred and orphans, the needy and the wayfarer; In order that it may not (merely) make a circuit between the wealthy among you. So take what the Messenger assigns to you, and deny yourselves that which he withholds from you. And fear Allah. for Allah is strict in Punishment. [59:7]
And remember We took a covenant from the Children of Israel (to this effect): Worship none but Allah. treat with kindness your parents and kindred, and orphans and those in need; speak fair to the people; be steadfast in prayer; and practise regular charity. Then did ye turn back, except a few among you, and ye backslide (even now). [2:83]
It is not righteousness that ye turn your faces Towards east or West; but it is righteousness- to believe in Allah and the Last Day, and the Angels, and the Book, and the Messengers; to spend of your substance, out of love for Him, for your kin, for orphans, for the needy, for the wayfarer, for those who ask, and for the ransom of slaves; to be steadfast in prayer, and practice regular charity; to fulfil the contracts which ye have made; and to be firm and patient, in pain (or suffering) and adversity, and throughout all periods of panic. Such are the people of truth, the Allah.fearing. [2:177]

Koran Lecture Part 8 - Urdu



Parents in the Quran:
A Muslim child should respect and appreciate his or her parents on a daily basis. Allaah mentions that human beings must recognise their parents and that this is second only to the recognition of Allaah Himself. Throughout the Quran, we notice that parents are mentioned with appreciation and respect, even if they are senile. In the Quran, there is a very beautiful description of how parents are to be treated; Allaah Says (what means): "And your Lord has decreed that you not worship except Him, and to parents, good treatment. Whether one or both of them reach old age [while] with you, say not to them [so much as] 'uff' [i.e., an expression of irritation or disapproval] and do not repel them but speak to them a noble word. And lower to them the wing of humility out of mercy and say: 'My Lord! Have mercy upon them as they brought me up [when I was] small.'" [Quran 17:23-24]
The recognition and respect of parents is mentioned in the Quran eleven times; in every instance, Allaah reminds children to recognise and to appreciate the love and care that they have received from their parents. One such example is when Allaah says what means: "And We have enjoined upon man goodness to parents…" [Quran 29:8 & 46:15]
1. The demand for recognising parents is made more emphatic when Allaah Says (what means): "And [recall] when We took the covenant from the Children of Israel, [enjoining upon them]: 'Do not worship except Allaah; and to parents, do good…'" [Quran 2:83]
2. Allaah again emphasises in chapter An-Nisaa' that children should be kind to their parents. He says what means: "Worship Allaah and associate nothing with Him, and to parents do good..." [Quran 4:36]
3. In Chapter Al-An'aam, Allaah reemphasises that people should be kind to their parents; He says what means: "Say: 'Come, I will recite what your Lord has prohibited to you. [He commands] that you not associate anything with Him, and to parents, good treatment...'" [Quran 6:151]

Koran Lecture Part 7 - Urdu



Sura Fajar
1. I swear by the daybreak,
2. And the ten nights,
3. And the even and the odd,
4. And the night when it departs.
5. Truly in that there is an oath for those who possess understanding.
6. Have you not considered how your Lord dealt with Ad,
7. (The people of) Aram, possessors of lofty buildings,
8. The like of which were not created in the (other) cities;
9. And (with) Samood, who hewed out the rocks in the valley,
10. And (with) Firon, the lord of hosts,
11. Who committed inordinacy in the cities,
12. So they made great mischief therein?
13. Therefore your Lord let down upon them a portion of the chastisement.
14. Most surely your Lord is watching.
15. And as for man, when his Lord tries him, then treats him with honor and makes him lead an easy life, he says: My Lord honors me.
16. But when He tries him (differently), then straitens to him his means of subsistence, he says: My Lord has disgraced me.
17. Nay! but you do not honor the orphan,
18. Nor do you urge one another to feed the poor,
19. And you eat away the heritage, devouring (everything) indiscriminately,
20. And you love wealth with exceeding love.
21. Nay! when the earth is made to crumble to pieces,
22. And your Lord comes and (also) the angels in ranks,
23 And Hell will be brought near that Day. On that Day will man remember, but how will that remembrance (then) avail him?
24 He will say: "Alas! Would that I had sent forth (good deeds) for (this) my life!"
25 So on that Day, none will punish as He will punish.
26 And none will bind as He will bind.
27 (It will be said to the pious): "O (you) the one in (complete) rest and satisfaction!
28 "Come back to your Lord, Well-pleased (yourself) and well-pleasing unto Him!
29 "Enter you, then, among My honoured slaves,
30 "And enter you My Paradise!"

Koran Lecture Part 6 - Urdu



يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا ارْكَعُوا وَاسْجُدُوا وَاعْبُدُوا رَبَّكُمْ وَافْعَلُوا الْخَيْرَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ ﴿٧٧
O you who believe! Bow down, and prostrate yourselves, and worship your Lord and do good that you may be successful.
It was reported from Uqbah bin Amir that the Prophet said:
فُضِّلَتْ سُورَةُ الْحَجِّ بِسَجْدَتَيْنِ، فَمَنْ لَمْ يَسْجُدْهُمَا فَلَا يَقْرَأْهُمَا
Surah Al-Hajj has been blessed with two Sajdah, so whoever does not prostrate them should not read them.
وَجَاهِدُوا فِي اللَّهِ حَقَّ جِهَادِهِ ...
And strive hard in Allah's cause as you ought to strive.
means, with your wealth and your tongues and your bodies.
This is like the Ayah:
اتَّقُواْ اللَّهَ حَقَّ تُقَاتِهِ
Have Taqwa of Allah as is His due. (3:102)
... هُوَ اجْتَبَاكُمْ ...
He has chosen you,
means, `O Ummah (of Islam), Allah has selected you and chosen you over all other nations, and has favored you and blessed you and honored you with the noblest of Messengers and the noblest of Laws.'
... وَمَا جَعَلَ عَلَيْكُمْ فِي الدِّينِ مِنْ حَرَجٍ ...
and has not laid upon you in religion any hardship,
He has not given you more than you can bear and He has not obliged you to do anything that will cause you difficulty except that He has created for you a way out. So the Salah, which is the most important pillar of Islam after the two testimonies of faith, is obligatory, four Rak`ahs when one is settled, which are shortened to two Rak`ah when one is traveling.
According to some Imams, only one Rak`ahs is obligatory at times of fear, as was recorded in the Hadith.
A person may pray while walking or riding, facing the Qiblah or otherwise. When praying optional prayers while traveling, one may face the Qiblah or not.
A person is not obliged to stand during the prayer if he is sick; the sick person may pray sitting down, and if he is not able to do that then he may pray lying on his side.
And there are other exemptions and dispensations which may apply to the obligatory prayers and other duties. So the Prophet said:
بُعِثْتُ بِالْحَنِيفِيَّةِ السَّمْحَة
I have been sent with the easy Hanifi way.
And he said to Mu`adh and Abu Musa, when he sent them as governors to Yemen:
بَشِّرَا وَلَا تُنَفِّرا وَيَسِّرَا وَلَا تُعَسِّرَا
Give good news and do not repel them. Make things easy for the people and do not make the things difficult for them.
And there are many similar Hadiths.
Ibn Abbas said concerning the Ayah, وَمَا جَعَلَ عَلَيْكُمْ فِي الدِّينِ مِنْ حَرَجٍ (and has not laid upon you in religion any hardship),
"This means difficulty.''
...مِّلَّةَ أَبِيكُمْ إِبْرَاهِيمَ ...
It is the religion of your father Ibrahim.
Ibn Jarir said,
"This refers back to the Ayah, وَمَا جَعَلَ عَلَيْكُمْ فِي الدِّينِ مِنْ حَرَجٍ (and has not laid upon you in religion any hardship), meaning, any difficulty.''
On the contrary, He has made it easy for you, like the religion of your father Ibrahim. He said,
"It may be that it means: adhere to the religion of your father Ibrahim.''
I say: This interpretation of the Ayah is like the Ayah:
قُلْ إِنَّنِى هَدَانِى رَبِّى إِلَى صِرَطٍ مُّسْتَقِيمٍ دِينًا قِيَمًا مِّلَّةَ إِبْرَاهِيمَ حَنِيفًا
Say: "Truly, my Lord has guided me to a straight path, a right religion, the religion of Ibrahim, a Hanif. (6:161)
... هُوَ سَمَّاكُمُ الْمُسْلِمينَ مِن قَبْلُ وَفِي هَذَا ...
He has named you Muslims both before and in this (Qur'an),
Imam Abdullah bin Al-Mubarak said, narrating from Ibn Jurayj, from Ata', from Ibn Abbas: concerning Allah's saying, هُوَ سَمَّاكُمُ الْمُسْلِمينَ مِن قَبْلُ (He has named you Muslims before),
"This refers to Allah, may He be glorified.''
This was also the view of Mujahid, Ata', Ad-Dahhak, As-Suddi, Muqatil bin Hayyan and Qatadah.
Mujahid said,
"Allah named you Muslims before, in the previous Books and in Adh-Dhikr, وَفِي هَذَا (and in this), means, the Qur'an.''
This was also the view of others, because Allah says:
... هُوَ اجْتَبَاكُمْ وَمَا جَعَلَ عَلَيْكُمْ فِي الدِّينِ مِنْ حَرَجٍ ...
He has chosen you, and has not laid upon you in religion any hardship,
Then He urged them to follow the Message which His Messenger brought, by reminding them that this was the religion of their father Ibrahim.
Then He mentioned His blessings to this Ummah, whereby He mentioned them and praised them long ago in the Books of the Prophets which were recited to the rabbis and monks. Allah says: هُوَ سَمَّاكُمُ الْمُسْلِمينَ مِن قَبْلُ (He has named you Muslims both before) meaning, before the Qur'an, وَفِي هَذَا (and in this).
Under the explanation of this Ayah, An-Nasa'i recorded from Al-Harith Al-Ash`ari from the Messenger of Allah, who said:
مَنْ دَعَا بِدَعْوَى الْجَاهِلِيَّةِ فَإِنَّهُ مِنْ جِثِيِّ جَهَنَّم
Whoever adopts the call of Jahiliyyah, will be one of those who will crawl on their knees in Hell.
A man said, "O Messenger of Allah, even if he fasts and performs Salah?''
He said,
نَعَمْ وَإِنْ صَامَ وَصَلَّى ، فَادْعُوا بِدَعْوَةِ اللهِ الَّتِي سَمَّاكُمْ بِهَا الْمُسْلِمِينَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ عِبَادَ الله
Yes, even if he fasts and performs Salah. So adopt the call of Allah whereby He called you Muslims and believers and servants of Allah.
... لِيَكُونَ الرَّسُولُ شَهِيدًا عَلَيْكُمْ وَتَكُونُوا شُهَدَاء عَلَى النَّاسِ ...
that the Messenger may be a witness over you and you be witnesses over mankind!
means, `thus We have made you a just and fair nation, the best of nations, and all other nations will testify to your justice. On the Day of Resurrection you will be, شُهَدَاء عَلَى النَّاسِ (witnesses over mankind),' because on that Day all the nations will acknowledge its leadership and its precedence over all others.
Therefore, on the Day of Resurrection the testimony of the members of this community will be accepted as proof that the Messengers conveyed the Message of their Lord to them, and the Messenger will testify that he conveyed the Message to them.
... فَأَقِيمُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَآتُوا الزَّكَاةَ ...
So perform the Salah, give Zakah,
means, respond to this great blessing with gratitude by fulfilling your duties towards Allah, doing that which He has enjoined upon you and avoiding that which He had forbidden.
Among the most important duties are establishing regular prayer and giving Zakah.
Zakah is a form of beneficence towards Allah's creatures, whereby He has enjoined upon the rich to give a little of their wealth to the poor each year, to help the weak and needy. We have already mentioned its explanation in the Ayah of Zakah in Surah At-Tawbah (9:5).
... وَاعْتَصِمُوا بِاللَّهِ ...
and hold fast to Allah.
means, seek the help and support of Allah and put your trust in Him, and get strength from Him.
... هُوَ مَوْلَاكُمْ ...
He is your Mawla,
meaning, He is your Protector and your Helper, He is the One Who will cause you to prevail against your enemies.
... فَنِعْمَ الْمَوْلَى وَنِعْمَ النَّصِيرُ ﴿٧٨﴾
what an Excellent Mawla and what an Excellent Helper!
He is the best Mawla and the best Helper against your enemies.
This is the end of the Tafsir of Surah Al-Hajj. May Allah bless our Prophet Muhammad and his family and Companions, and grant them peace; may Allah honor and be pleased with the Companions and those who follow them in truth until the Day of Resurrection.
