"O Allah, Shower Your Peace come upon Muhammad and the family of Muhammad, as you have brought peace to Ibrahim and his family.
Truly, You are Praiseworthy and Glorious. O Allah, Shower your blessing upon Muhammad and the family of Muhammad, as you have blessed Ibrahim and his family. Truly, You are Praiseworthy and Glorious". I am Satisfied with ALLAH as My Rabb and Cherisher, I am Satisfied With Islam as My Din (religion) and I am satisfied with Muhammad as a Rasulallah (Messenger)sallallahu alaihi was salam.(Amin)
Then oppressing and repressing
the muslim people in every aspect of their lives. And Any form of Genocide, torture, mass arrests and
unjust Killing or murder has always been acts of ignorant. There are many things going on in these situations, there is among the muslims disbelievers who pretend to be muslim who are in the East and in America who pray with us every day,! But they are the Enemy and the Proof of this is that they stir up hostilities between the muslims by turning the muslims against each other, and they do everything they possibly can to bring disgrace on Islam and Hardship to the believing people. " Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said, 'Islam began as something strange, and it will revert to being strange as it was in the beginning, so good tidings for the strangers.' 'Abdullah ibn Mas'ud said: once I asked, 'Who are the strangers?' He said, 'The ones who break away from their people (literally, 'tribes') for the sake of Islam.' "Islam is strange in this Western World. Because of 3 Types of ignorants in the west.(1)(the first type of Ignorant in the west is the People who donot know!) And that is because the Muslima are not doing their Job of teaching and Educating the Masses of People about Islam.(2)(the Second type of ignorant in the west is the People who do not want to know!)And this is because these people have heard and seen so many native things about Islam)(3) (the third type of Ignorant in the west is the People who know and reject faith) these are the People who have studied Islam and the Worship of One ALLAH(One GOD)and the Establishment of Righteousness and Right conduct, And that is to much for them so they reject faith. Islam began as something strange, and it shall return to being something strange, so give glad tidings to the strangers." Many times in many situations the people that follow the Din of Allah feel a sense of not belonging, of being out of place, of not fitting in, and, in other words, of being strange. This feeling could occur in a gathering of non-Muslims, but, unfortunately, this feeling sometimes also occurs when one is with his fellow Muslims. may Allah have mercy on them, should take consolation in the verses of the Qur’an and the many statements of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) describing this very situation of strangeness that they feel. O Muslim People! Do not allow the strangeness that you sense amongst the people to cause you to lose heart. Because the nature of man, is that, if he does not see people accompanying him in a particular way, or upon a particular path, then he will feel lonely and he may stop in his tracks or he may return and * from that which he’s upon of guidance.”Allah says in the Qur’an, "If only there had been, in the generations preceding you, people having wisdom, prohibiting others from evil in the earth; except a few of those whom we have saved from among them." (Hud 116).This verse speaks of the few people on earth, the "strangers", who prohibit mankind from evil. These are the same people that Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam)spoke about when he said, "Islam began as something strange, and it shall return to being something strange, so give glad tidings [ar. Tooba. This is a tree in Paradise. So Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) is giving the good news of Paradise to these strangers.] to the strangers." It was asked, "Who are those strangers, O Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) ?" He replied, "Those that correct the people when they become corrupt." [Reported by Abu Amr al-Dani, from the hadith of ibn Masoud. It is authentic according to al-Albani. Another narration says, "Those that correct my sunnah which has been corrupted by the people after me."] In another narration he said in response to the same question, "They are a small group of people among a large evil population. Those who oppose them are more than those who follow them."These praiseworthy people are called strangers since they are a small minority among mankind. Thus, Muslims are strangers among mankind; The true believers are strangers among Muslims; and the scholars are strangers among the true believers who are the followers of the Sunnah, those that clear themselves from all peoples of innovation, are likewise strangers.In reality, however, their strangeness is only because they are the minority and it is not because their actions and beliefs are strange. This is what Allah says in surah al-Anaam, "And if you obey most of the people on Earth, they will lead you astray" (al-Anaam 116). Allah also says, "And most of mankind will not believe, even if you (O Muhammad) desire it eagerly" (Yusuf 103); "And truly, most of mankind are rebellious and disobedient (to Allah)." (al-Maidah 49); "But nay, most of mankind are ungrateful" (Yusuf 38). Therefore, Allah, the all-Knowing Creator, knows the most of mankind will not follow the truth. Instead, only a small group of people will be set apart that truly and correctly believe in Him, the strangers from among mankind. And that is why we find Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said in an authentic hadeeth O Muslim People!, the Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) he told us about those days where a person will need patience to remain upon the truth, will receive the reward of 50 of the companions. There will be a time where patience will be required and due to the amount of patience that is required to remain firm upon the truth, the individual at that time will receive the reward of 50 of the companions of the Prophet Muhammed(sallallahu alayhi wasallam) Why? Why will he receive this reward?”Because if a person was to look around him and he found that all of his friends & the people surrounding him was upon the same path, he would not feel lonely. He would not feel lonely. However, but the days you will need patience all of the people they will be differing and disagreeing and contradicting one another. This one saying “I’m upon the truth,” another individual saying, “I’m upon the truth, he’s upon falsehood.” So at that time the believer is going to need to be patient, upon the truth. “During that time, it will be difficult for a person to do acts of obedience and it will be hard, but the individual who will receive this reward – that the Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) highlighted in the hadeeth, he will be patient in the face of all of those trials and difficulties, and his feet will be firm. His feet, will be firm.”Do not allow that sense of strangeness you feel from the people, that sense of strangeness cause you to feel lonely.”Wallaahi, By Allaah, this is the truth.” O Muslim People!, Ahlus Sunnaah, should not be disheartened. Ahlus Sunnaah should not lose heart. Ahlus Sunnaah should not feel lonely. As long as your upon guidance from Allaah, why do you feel lonely? The person upon the Sunnah does not feel lonely. Your upon the correct religion. Your upon the truth. Don’t worry about the people. As the ulamaa of the past, they used to say: “Pleasing the people is something that you will never be able to achieve.” Because you will always have those who are pleased with you & those who are upset with you. The most crucial thing is that you remain firm upon the truth. Upon the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and His the Sahaba. You will be buried in your grave alone. No one to aide you and assist you. And the people they will be buried in their graves alone. And on the day of resurrection you will be brought back to life without any wealth and any offspring or children." O Muslim People!, ahlus Sunnah should not feel lonely. Why should they not feel lonely? Because if you obey Allaah and you obey Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam)--ALLAH aza wa jal, He gives us glad tidings in the Qur’aan, that should remove that sense of loneliness and sadness and grief from the heart of any person who clings to the Sunnah of the Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam)-Allaah aza wa jal He said “Whoever obey’s Allaah and His Messenger, then they will be with those, whom Allaahaza wa jal has blessed. They will be with those from whom Allaahsubhannahu wa ta a’la has blessed. From the prophets, the truthful, the martrys, and the righteous and these are the best companions.” He will be with the prophets and the righteous. He will be with the companions fil Jannah. So the people of the Sunnah we should not lose heart, And we should not lose heart O Muslim People! ”Feel not lonely by the strangeness amongst the people, for the people are considered to be like those who are dead.”Are you not aware that the People of the Sunnah during and in every era, then they are truly the strangers,” that they are truly the strangers.The answer to this is: Na’am, certainly were aware of this.” “Wallaahi, the people of the Sunnah are the strangers.”“O Allaah, make us from Ahlus Sunnah! The people of the Sunnah they are the strangers. The people that cling to the(Din) religion, they don’t water it down, they don’t go to extremes, they stand upon the middle path, they are the strangers no matter what time or what era that they in live. The difference of opinions, the disputes, the different beliefs, the different religions and sects, you would find that the people of the Sunnah, is like the white dot upon the horses’ head.” The person of the Sunnah, is like the white dot upon the horses’ head; meaning he’s small in number, but yet stands out! So O Muslim People!, when was the Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam)-and his companions and those who followed them in goodness, when were they safe? When were they ever unharmed from the ignorant people? So that’s the first type of person, and the one who is stubborn and haughty the * individual. Wa munafiqqeen, that’s the third type of person, the hypocrite & the one who wages war through oppression and injustice? The answer to this question: they were never safe.” The answer, they were never safe from these individuals. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam)-was never safe from this harm and nor His companions.Very often when the Hijrah is discussed, we tend not to go into the details describing how the Prophet (saw) hid in a cave or who slept in his (saw) bed. the true substance of the event. An account of such events should serve to remind us that Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam), while relying on ALLAH and the revelation as the source of the Islamic Message, He had to carry the Islamic Dawah as a human being, and through the means accessible to a human being. The Hijrah to Medinah take place because the Muslims in Mecca wanted to avoid the persecution and hardships there and find a good and safe place to practice islam, And it was an event that took history in a new direction, and this can only be seen if we look at the Seerah in the correct manner. The Seerah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) is an integral part of the Sunnah, and is just as much a part of the revelation as is the Qur'an. After a careful study of it, we can extract a very specific method for carrying out the Da'wah, and if our aim is to please Allah (swt), then it is our obligation to adhere to this method step by step, through each and every phase. Say (0 Muhammad): If you love Allah then follow me, Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful (Al-i-Imran 3: 31) And whatever the Messenger gives you, accept it, and whatever he forbids, avoid (AI-Hashr 59: 7) According to the Seerah, the Hijrah marks the transition from the phase in the Da'wah known as 'Seeking the Nusrah' to the phase where Islam is implemented in the form of a state. The Nusrah is the transfer of authority to a person via the material support or allegiance from the powerful elements of a society. The Hijrah is a direct result of seeking, and subsequently receiving, the Nusrah. When Mus'ab ibn Umair (ra) was sent to Medinah to spread the Message of Islam, it took him one year of tireless work in that city before its leaders journeyed to Mecca to transfer their authority to the Prophet (saaw) by giving him the Ba'yah. This Ba'yah was called Bayat-ul Harb (Allegiance of War). Although there was no war, it was called Bayat-ul Harb because it indicated the willingness of the Muslims to fight, when necessary, to protect the Da'wah and the newly established Islamic State. The Prophet (saaw) had invested four years of Da'wah, towards most of the tribes in Najd (the large area between Mecca and Medinah) before he (saaw) received the Nusrah. It is important to note that until this time in the Seerah, even with all the pressure the Prophet (saaw) placed upon the Kufr society of Mecca, all the persecution that the Quraysh inflicted on Prophet (saaw) and the Muslims was comparatively trivial to the persecution that came after the Prophet (saaw) received the Nusrah from the leaders of Medinah. From this point onward the plot of the Kuffar was to assassinate Muhammad (saaw). Indeed, it is true that Shaitan and his followers are most afraid of the implementation of Allah's rules. Keeping these elements in mind, whenever we discuss the Hijrah, which many people will try to reduce to a spiritual journey the Prophet (saw) took over some terrain, we should discuss the overall ideological significance of this event in terms of Islam and the Da'wah mission. It is critical for us, the Muslims, to realize that this event not only marks the beginning of our calendar, but more importantly it commemorates the establishment of the nucleus of the first Islamic state. For hundreds of years to come this nucleus would engulf neighbouring lands, sub sequently liberating one oppressed people after another and bringing them the Mercy from Allah (swt) called Islam. If we want to talk about the essential nature of the Hijrah, we have to realize that it marks the time when Islam as an Ideology was transformed from idea to practice. the people of Medinah accepted Muhammad (saw) only as a Prophet. However, after the transfer of power (Nusrah), when he (saaw) arrived in Medinah, they were receiving him (saw) as a ruler and a Prophet. Before the Prophet (saw) made the Hijrah, he (saw) was a Prophet with the new laws revealed to him (saw) by Allah (swt). After the Hijrah, he (saw) was the one who implemented this law. Islam had gone from addressing and pointing out the problems and issues to tackling the problems and issues and providing solutions for them. It was at this point that the Prophet (saaw) was able to apply the rules and systems of Islam into real life. The Hijrah, a part of the Seerah, is something that must be studied in depth to gain a full understanding of its implications and meaning. It is not simply a series of bedtime stories to be told and remembered like fairy tales of how the Prophet (saaw) took Abu Bakr (ra) with him and went on a journey, and at the end of it the people received him (saaw) by singing merry melodies, This is not to say that the details of the Hijrah, like how the Prophet (saaw) had to get Ali ibn Abi Talib (ra) to sleep in his bed, or how he (saaw) had to hide in a cave, are not significant. These details are important because they remind us that the techniques and tactics used by the Prophet (saaw) were human and not superhuman. They were not tactics which required miracles to be carried out.We cannot claim that since he (saaw) was a Prophet, and since we are not Prophets, we are unable to exactly follow his (saaw) footsteps when it comes to the manner in which he (saw) carried the Da'wah. We must remember that these steps, or phases, in the Da'wah mission were meant for us to follow, and to not follow them is a disobedience to Allah Azz wa jal. O Muslims People it is Time to Leave this Land before it becomes Impossible to leave! And He will provide him from (sources) he could never imagine. And whoever puts their trust in Allah, then He will suffice him. Verily, Allah will accomplish His purpose. Indeed, Allah has set a measure for all things.
The root of Tawakkul is ‘reliance’ or ‘dependence’. We say that we depend on Allah (The Most High) for everything, and place our reliance on Him. This is the reality of Tawakkul in that we place our trust and reliance on Allah (The Most High), in terms of both our worldly affairs, as well as our Deen. As well as utilising our deep inward feelings rather than to the intellect, or tangible means of attaining that which we want to attain. Allaah has linked this reliance (tawakkul) to worship ( ‘ibaadah), as occurs in His statement: “So worship Him and put your trust in Him.” [Surah Hood: 123] Allaah orders us to put our trust in Him, and He praises those who do it. He also states in many verses of the Qur’aan that He loves those who put their reliance in Him. All of this indicates and shows the importance of putting one’s trust in Allaah. to make Hijra one has to put his completed Trust in ALLAH! Relying upon Allaah is from the actions of the heart – so it is an act of worship of the heart. Therefore, putting one’s trust in Allaah is not to be done with one’s limbs and body parts. Rather, it is found in the heart, just like fear (khawf), awe (khashyah), longing (raghbah), dreading (rahbah) and dutifulness (taqwaa) of Allaah – all of these are acts of worship of the heart. Tawakkul is something that develops slowly in the Heart by being tested in many ways through our patience, through our Sincerity,through our Fear of ALLAH,through our Hope in ALLAH,through our Love for ALLAH, through our contentment with what ALLAH has provide, through our Gratitude,and through our Humility before ALLAH. And when Tawakkul develops fully it becomes Intuitive and Instinctive,that is to have a deep inward sense of security in our Hearts that ALLAH will protect us and He will not abandon us non foresakeus,and that He is for Ever present, And that is the All-Knowing, He(ALLAH) has always been and will always be. The position of tawakkul (reliance on Allaah) is as some of the scholars have stated: “The position of tawakkul in the Religion is like that of the head on a body.”So a person that does not have tawakkul does not have Religion, just like a body that has no head. It is well known that if a body is missing its head, it will cease to live. This is the same case with the Religion – if it lacks tawakkul, it lacks correctness – meaning that one will not have a correct religion. Relying on Allaah, Allaah uses it to distinguish His believing servants from everyone else. So whoever doesn’t put his trust in Allaah at all is a disbeliever. And whoever puts his trust in Allaah and also on others besides Allaah (at the same time) is a polytheist. And as for the one who puts his trust in Allaah alone – he is a monotheistic believer whom Allaah loves and whose actions and statements He is pleased with. This is since he has established his actions and statements upon a correct foundation.So what is the meaning of this tawakkul (reliance on Allaah), which holds such importance and high position in the Religion? The Meaning of Reliance (Tawakkul) on Allaah
Tawakkul on Allaah means: Entrusting one’s affairs to Him and relying on Him in all matters. Entrusting one’s affairs to Allaah entails not turning to someone else for support. So reliance (tawakkul) upon Allaah can be with regard to matters of Creed, such that the servant’s heart does not turn to anyone else besides Allaah. Therefore, he is always putting his reliance in Allaah, entrusting all of his affairs to Him.
Tawakkul therefore involves belief, dependence, and action. This is because in order to gain at least some level of Tawakkul, the slave needs to be aware of the fact that all the matters of this world and the Hereafter lie in the Hands of Allah (The Most High). Nothing occurs except by His Permission and His Leave. It is a realisation of the verse from Umm-ul-Quran, ‘You alone we worship, You alone we ask for help’ and is a requirement of one’s Iman because depending on other than Allah (The Most High) for that which Allah (The Most High) alone can provide, or (in the case of a tribulation, Allah alone can save a person from), is major Shirk. As Allah (The Most High) says ‘so worship Him and put your trust in Him. And your Lord is not unaware of what you do’ We also know that He states in Surah Al-Anfal, referring to the qualities of Al-Mu’minoon: The believers are only those who, when Allah is mentioned, feel a fear in their hearts and when His Verses are recited to them, they increase their Faith; and they put their trust in their Lord.’ Another such reference which we spend our nights reading, is contained in Surah Al-Mulk, Say: “He is the Most Gracious (Allah) in Him we believe, and in Him we put our trust. So, you will come to know who it is that is in manifest error. We also have many, many examples from our Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam)including examples of certain supplications which he made. In an authentic hadith contained in Bukhari and Muslim, Ibn Abbas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported that Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) used to supplicate: ‘O Allah! To You I have submitted, and in You do I believe, and in You I put my trust, to You do I turn, and for You I argued. O Allah, I seek refuge with You through Your Power; there is none worthy of worship except You Alone; that You safeguard me against going astray. You are the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists; the One Who never dies, whereas human beings and jinn will all die’. What this demonstrates is just how necessary this trust and reliance on Allah is, whereby we make Allah the disposer of our affairs. As it becomes clear from the aforementioned hadith, Tawakkul is interlinked, interfused even, with submission to Allah, and belief in Allah. This becomes apparent in the hadith, ‘O Allah! To You I have submitted, and in You do I believe, and in You I put my trust’. In a single breath Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) refers to submission, Iman, and Tawakkul. In another hadith showing the importance of Tawakkul and its benefits in this world and the Hereafter, Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said, ‘A group of people (both men and women) whose hearts will be like the
hearts of birds, will enter Jannah’ (Muslim). According to the renowned author of Riyadh As Saliheen, this Hadith has been interpreted to mean that it is those people who put their trust in Allah who will be in Jannah. Under this interpretation, there seems to be direct correlation between the way the people of Tawakkul lived their lives in this world, and their reward. It is the people of Tawakkul who would never have worried about their provisions, food, and means of subsistence, and are like the birds who do not collect any food to keep in reserve but go out every morning in search of food, hoping for and believing in Allah’s provision, and then returning home to their nests fully satisfied.
