2 [agree] or not 2 [disagree]-that is the question

« on: Jul 19, 2010 11:29 PM »

As Ramadhan is approaching, I think we should start reminding ourselves to prepare for this blessed month so we can achieve most out of it.
Although we should consider every sin as major sin but Ulama have categorized some sins as major ones. Here are few to share with you. One thing to keep in mind that every time when we are about to commit a sin, we should atleast think once that
"who are we going to insult by doing this act" and obviously its Allah swt who would be insulted. So, if you can afford to bear the anger of Allah swt then please continue, otherwise stop...

Anything  good in my message is blessing of Allah (SWT) and anything bad is from my nafs and I ask Allah (SWT) to forgive me and show me the straight path (Ameen)
سُوۡرَةُ حٰمٓ السجدة / فُصّلَت
And who is better in speech than he who [says: "My Lord is Allâh (believes in His Oneness)," and then stands firm (acts upon His Order), and] invites (men) to Allâh's (Islâmic Monotheism), and does righteous deeds, and says: "I am one of the Muslims." (33) The good deed and the evil deed cannot be equal. Repel (the evil) with one which is better (i.e. Allâh orders the faithful believers to be patient at the time of anger, and to excuse those who treat them badly), then verily! he, between whom and you there was enmity, (will become) as though he was a close friend. (34) But none is granted it (the above quality) except those who are patient - and none is granted it except the owner of the great portion (of happiness in the Hereafter i.e. Paradise and of a high moral character) in this world. (35) And if an evil whisper from Shaitân (Satan) tries to turn you away (O Muhammad SAW) (from doing good), then seek refuge in Allâh. Verily, He is the All-Hearer, the All-Knower. (36)
اور اس شخص سے بات کا اچھا کون ہوسکتا ہے جو خدا کی طرف بلائے اور عمل نیک کرے اور کہے کہ میں مسلمان ہوں (۳۳) اور بھلائی اور برائی برابر نہیں ہوسکتی۔ تو (سخت کلامی کا) ایسے طریق سے جواب دو جو بہت اچھا ہو (ایسا کرنے سے تم دیکھو گے) کہ جس میں اور تم میں دشمنی تھی گویا وہ تمہارا گرم جوش دوست ہے (۳۴) اور یہ بات ان ہی لوگوں کو حاصل ہوتی ہے جو برداشت کرنے والے ہیں۔ اور ان ہی کو نصیب ہوتی ہے جو بڑے صاحب نصیب ہیں (۳۵) اور اگر تمہیں شیطان کی جانب سے کوئی وسوسہ پیدا ہو تو خدا کی پناہ مانگ لیا کرو۔ بےشک وہ سنتا جانتا ہے (۳۶)

Hey !!!!! what are you trying to do? I have enough trouble memorizing Newton's Laws of motion and you come up with this list!

There is only ONE golden principle (?principal) to remember:  you have to justify your actions to an entity which knows not only what you did but also how and why. If you keep this principle in mind, you will always get the right answer as to what you should do in any particular situation. whether you do it or not is up to you.

I don't think we have to memorize the list, but we should really know them. I know that I never knew a lot of those things were MAJOR sins before I read adhahabi's book. I"m sure a lot of others don't either...

About justifying things I agree that is a good principle to go by, but you'd be surprised by how much wack stuff ppl justify in their minds  Roll Eyes that's why we have the laws in Islam, bc ppl are just too subjective...

There are three on the list that I need to be more careful of.

May Almighty Allah reward you for supporting the mission of our Rasool'Allah (SAW) by conveying the message (islamic knowledge) to those that need it.

This was very useful, and there were a few surprises there for me.
