Fasting is a shield, for as long as you do not tear it apart (i.e. destroy it)

Fasting is a shield, for as long as you do not tear it apart (i.e. destroy it)

Allah's Name (we) begin with, The Compassionate Most Merciful

As Salaatu Was Salaamu Alaika Ya Rasool'Allah صلٰى الله عليه و سلم

In'sha Allah, over the next few days I will share with you some narrations and laws pertaining to Fasting and other aspects of Ramadaan.

Baihaqi has  reported that Rasoolullah Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam said, ‘Fasting is a shield, and it is a strong fortress as protection from hell.’

Baihaqi reports from Abu Ubaidah Radi Allahu anhu and Tabrani from Abu Hurairah Radi Allahu anhu that Rasoolullah Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam said, ‘Fasting is a shield, for as long as you do not tear it apart (i.e. destroy it).’  It was asked, ‘With what will it be destroyed?’  He Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam said, ‘with lies and backbiting.’

Law:  During Ramadaan it is impermissible to do such things which cause one to become so weak, that one feels there is a predominant likelihood of breaking the Fast.  A baker should thus bake bread until midday, and he should then take rest for the remainder of the day.  [Durr-e-Mukhtar vol.2 pg.157]  This command is (also) for builders, labourers and those who do physically challenging jobs.  If there is a risk of becoming very weak, then one should lessen the work and fulfil the fasts. [Bahaar]

What is Zikr (Remembrance) of Allah

What is Zikr (Remembrance) of Allah

Allah's Name (we) begin with, The Compassionate Most Merciful

As Salaatu Was Salaamu Alaika Ya Rasool'Allah
صلٰى الله عليه و سلم

Continuing today with the discussion on Zikr (Remembrance) of Allah, it must be said that the Zikr of Allah undoubtedly cleanses and comforts the heart. We should also know that Zikr e Mustafa Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam in reality is also Zikrullah because to remember the Beloved Rasool Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam is to remember Allah Almighty, for Rasoolullah Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam is the Most Beloved of Allah and with the Zikr of Rasoolullah Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam comes the Zikr of Allah.

It has been a practice amongst the Ahle Sunnat to have gatherings of Zikr which most of us call 'Mehfil e Zikr'. These gatherings are very blessed gatherings and a means of assisting us to excel spiritually. We must remember that the Remembrance of Allah brings one closer to the Mercy of Allah and allows our hearts to transform spiritually into powerful spiritual chests of Noor.

It is reported from Hazrat Anas bin Maalik radi Allahu anhu that the Beloved Rasool Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam said, 'Qiyaamat will only be established, when there will be none left on the earth saying Allah, Allah (i.e. When none will be left who is in Zikrullah).

Hazrat Zun'noon Misri radi Allahu anhu says, One who remembers Allah in the real sense, then his engrossment in Zikr of Allah causes him to forget everything else, and Almighty Allah Protects everything of his, and this Zikr becomes the best substitute to him for everything else.

These are the blessings of performing Zikr with sincerity and dedication. Why would someone not want to make Zikrullah, after knowing it is what brings him closer to the Mercy of Allah! There are however those who try to divert the True Believers away from the Zikr Mehfils. These people are surely the agents of Shaitaan. We should stay away from all Bud-mazhabs as their company is destructive to our Imaan.

Ramadan is the Month of the Qur'an

Ramadan is the Month of the Qur'an

Ramadan is the month of the Qur'an as well as the month of all good deeds. A Muslim is recommended to read the Qur'an and do good deeds in this blessed month as much as he can. In this context, we recall the Prophetic Hadith addressed by the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) to his Companions on the last day of Sha`ban:

"O people! A great month has come; a blessed month in which is a night better than a thousand months; a month in which Allah has made it compulsory upon you to fast by day, and voluntary to pray by night. Whoever draws nearer (to Allah) by performing any of the (optional) good deeds in (this month), shall receive the same reward as performing an obligatory deed at any other time; and whoever performs an obligatory deed in (this month), shall receive the reward of performing seventy obligations at any other time. It is the month of patience, and the reward of patience is Paradise. It is the month of charity, and a month in which a believer's sustenance is increased. Whoever gives food to a fasting person to break his fast, shall have his sins forgiven, and he will be saved from the Hell-Fire, and he shall have the same reward as the fasting person, without his reward being diminished at all." (Reported by ibn Khuzaymah)

Shedding more light on this interesting question, we'd like to cite for you the following fatwa issued by the late Sheikh Sayyed Ad-Darsh, former Chairman of the UK Shari`ah Council:

Ramadan is the month in which the Qur'an was revealed. Allah says:

(The month of Ramadan in which was revealed the Quran, a guidance for mankind, and clear proofs of the guidance, and the Criterion (of right and wrong). And whosoever of you is present, let him fast the month.) (Al-Baqarah 2: 185)

This verse establishes the link between Ramadan and the Qur'an. We know that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) was in the habit of retreating to Mount Hira during Ramadan and it was during one of these periods of contemplation that the Archangel Gabriel appeared to him with the first revelation. So Ramadan marks the beginning of the call to Islam and the prophetic mission of Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him).

Secondly, when Ramadan Fasting became obligatory, the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) used to recite the Qur'an with Gabriel. Gabriel used to descend from the heavens every night to read everything that had so far been revealed to the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him).

Thirdly, when we offer our Taraweeh prayers, it is recommended that over the course of the month the whole Qur'an be completed. This presents a great opportunity for those who haven't read the whole Qur'an to hear it.
