Every Sunnah of our beloved Prophet Muhammad Saw is beautiful and today I will be discussing about another Beautiful Sunnah of our Prophet Saw that is Smiling. if you smile you are doing a Virtue and following Sunnah of Prophet Saw. Prophet Muhamad Saw,s face was always full of smile and he used to talk very politely with others. Prophet Muhammad Saw said in an Hadith that “Your smile for your brother is charity.” Smiling is not only a Virtue and Sunnah but it has also many good effects on our Health and life. Following are some of the Benefits of Smiling.
1 Smile always changes your mood. If you are not in a good mood by smiling your mood will change. 2 Smiling will make you attractive. People are always attracted to a person who smiles more. 3 Another Benefit of Smile is that it reduces your stress. When you are feeling tired and stressful by smiling your stress will reduce. 4 Smiling also have good effect on Immune System of a person. Smiles helps Immune System to work better. The reason behind it is because you feel relaxed when you smile.
There is a large List of benefits of Smiling so always keep smiling. Many people mostly remains angry which effects not only their own health and life but other also don,t like such people. There are several Hadiths of Prophet Saw advising us to control our anger and meeting others with a Cheerful face. The real brave person is that you controls his anger and learns to smile. May Allah Swt help us in following the Beautiful Sunnah of our Prophet Saw of Smiling.
We Muslims have been divided into sects and sub-sects but Islam does not encourage us to create sects. But how ever this evil thing has come into our Umah and the only way to remove this sectarianism is to ponder over quran and read it with understanding. InshAllah I will keep this Post for removing differences among the different sects or you may say.. among muslims which often brings sectarian debates in forums online. Firstly, I would quote ayah of quran which clearly ask us (muslims) to abstain from creating different sects. Allah says, (6:159) Surely you have nothing to do with those who have made divisions in their religion and become factions. Their matter is with Allah and He will indeed tell them what they have been doing. NOW I WOULD LIKE TO PRESENT AYAT FROM QUR'AN SURA AL-KAHAF WHICH EXPLAINS TO US MUSLIMS ABOUT HOW TO REMOVE THE DIFFERENCES AMONG US AND BEAUTIFULLY EXPLAINS WHAT ACTUALLY WE MUST HAVE FOLLOWED INSTEAD OF DIFFERING AMONG OURSELVES ABOUT FEW LITTLE THINGS. AND TO PONDER OVER WHAT ALLAH IS ACTUALLY GIVING WISDOM FROM SO AND SO STORY OR ACT OF WORSHIP OR ANY THING YOU MAY TAKE THAT AS:-
(18:22) Some will say concerning them: "They were three and their dog, the fourth"; and some will say: "They were five, and their dog, the sixth" all this being merely guesswork; and still others will say: "They were seven, and their dog, the eighth." Say: "My Lord knows their number best. Only a few know their correct number. So do not dispute concerning their number, but stick to what is evident, and do not question anyone about them." Surah Kahaf states the story of people of the cave who were in their full youth and were on the "TAWHEED" they preached about tawheed among their pple but were humiliated and oppressed them. Allah s.w.t explains the story to Muhammad pbuh to tell this to the Christians who also believed in this story. BUT the CHRISTIANS what did they do was... they forgot THE MAIN TEACHINGS FROM THIS STORY AND ARGUED AMONG THEM SELVES ABOUT THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE OF THE CAVE!
So in the AYAH 22 of Sura Kahaf Allah says, So do not dispute concerning their number, but stick to what is evident, and do not question anyone about them." To make every body understand that their number is known to Allah s.w.t why they are differing in numbers rather than taking lesson from the sory of as-haab-e-kahaf ? Same is the situation of ours.. we are now fighting over little things... i don,t have to say about it over here.. everyone knows that. We are not sticking to the core subject of what is explained in the qur'an and ahadith but fighting over those ahadith and ayaat. Just think about it. May Allah Swt help Muslims to leave sectarianism.
From Last few years Islam and things related to Islam are under target of some Westerners who calls themselves bright minded and secular. They Targets Allah Swt, Prophet Muhammad Saw, Beard and everything related to Islam. They don,t lose any chance to make fun of Islam and hurt the feelings of every Fourth Person of the world that is a Muslim. Recently the attack is on Islamic Hijab of Women. Sometimes Muslim women are not allowed to play in Hijab in International Games, sometimes they are suspended from Schools for wearing Hijab, sometimes they are even killed for Wearing Hijab.
I would like to discuss what has happened in just last month against Islamic Hijab. Iranian Women Football team was banned from playing in Olympics for wearing Hijab, Several Girls where suspended from Schools for wearing Hijab, France is planning to ban Islamic Burqa by bringing a bill in Parliament. After France Belgium has also decided to take this step where only 400 women wear Islamic Burqa. By doing such acts they are showing their hatred for Islam and Muslims and wants to naked Muslim women like their own Women goes everywhere naked. But these so called bright minded and secular must keep in mind that by doing such dirty acts they cannot end a Pure thing like Hijab. Hijab of Women is not a oppression against her. Muslim women wears it by her own choice to stop exposing their body to men. May Allah Swt send his blessings on those Women who wears Hijab.
Doing Nikah Marriage is the Sunnah of Our Beloved Prophet Muhammad Saw and it is a beautiful part of our life. According to Hadith of Prophet Saw a person who don,t Nikah without any reason (such as not enough money for Nikah and taking care of wife) is not from us. But today my topic is not doing Nikah but how to do Nikah. It is the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad Saw to do Nikah in the Masjid. These days very few marriages takes place in Masjid and most of the Nikahs has started taking place in Hotels and Wedding Halls.
Specially in our Part of World Pakistan and India this Sunnah is forgotten very much and most of Nikahs are taking place in Hotels and Wedding Halls. But Alhamdulilah still there are some countries where most of Muslim marriages takes place in Masjid. I am not saying that doing Nikah in Hotels or Wedding Halls is wrong but why not to follow the Sunnah way of our Prophet Saw? In Islam concept of Nikah is very simple but today some People has made it very complicated. These days Marriage is not done without spending millions of Rs which creates problems for poor people. In the matter of Nikah we Muslims needs to Learn from Christians who still do their marriages in Churches although they don,t follow other things told by Jesus Christ Pbuh. May Allah Swt help us in following Sunnah of out Beloved Prophet Saw in our Nikahs.

He played a major role in bringing Islamic environment in Pakistani team during his captaincy. When he was captain whole team used to offer Five times Salaah together.

Internet is considered one of the biggest invention of last few decades which has effected the mankind very much. Its use is increasing day by day and thousands of people are joining the Internet world daily. I have seen Many People who thinks that it is Haram to Use Internet from Islamic Point of view because it is creating many social problems and sins. There is no doubt that Internet does creating many social problems and sin specially in youngsters who spends their nights online in useless things like in chatting with opposite Genders or watching bad things. According to some reports Internet has also increased rate of divorce.
But the point is that due to all these things you cannot declare the whole Internet Haram. Internet is also containing many Islamic and useful things. You can Read Quran, Listen Nasheeds, listen Islamic lectures, Talk about Islam with other people and can do several positive things on Internet. You can even earn Money by Halal ways on Internet. So how Using Internet for Positive things can be Haram? The Main thing is how you use Internet? If you use it correctly It is Halal and if you use it for wrong things it is Haram. Parents needs to keep an eye on their Children that what they are doing online? Try to keep Computer in your room so that you can see what your Children are doing on Internet? Also try to block Un-islamic sites from Internet Settings. If we use Internet for good purposes it is a blessing for us but if the same Internet is used for wrong things it can create lot of problems. May Allah Swt help everyone in making correct use of Internet.
Islamic Criminal Punishments that are actually blessings for Humanity are tried to shown as brutality on humanity specially International Media plays a major role in doing Fake propaganda against Islamic Criminal Punishments. The main thing that is needed to remember is that the Fear of punishment is more important than Punishment itself and when you will impose strict punishments you will see the immediate result as decrease in rate of Crimes.
Today the countries where the rate of crimes is lowest are those where Islamic Criminal Punishments are imposed such as Saudi Arabia. The Countries like US where punishments are not strict are in those countries where rate of murders, rapes and other crimes is very high. According to US department of Justice report after every 20 seconds one women is raped in US. Some People targets Islam by saying Islam is very Barbaric religion it gives Capital punishment to Rapist. My question to such people is if your mother or sister is raped by a man what punishment you will give to him if you are made judge? The reply of over 90% people was we will kill him. Then why double standards if your mother or sister is raped you will kill him but if someone else mother or sister is raped by a person, giving him capital punishment is wrong. Same Way if you will end Capital punishment for a killer rate of murders will increase. Impose the Islamic Punishment laws anywhere in the world and you will see the immediate result as massive decease in rate of crimes. May Allah Swt help everyone is following the Laws given by Islam.
