Today the word Islam is used mostly with words like terrorism, Violence, Al Qaeda and Muslims are presented as the terrorists in mainstream media. Islam Haters Quotes Quran Verses out of context and Changes their meaning to show that Islam is not a peaceful religion. Word Jihad is connected with Terrorism. Lets see does Islam really Promotes Terrorism or Islam is a Peaceful religion? According to me Islam is the most Peaceful religion of the word that not only talks about Peace but also guides us how to bring Peace in the world. If we talk about the word Islam itself it comes from the Arabic root word Sulm and its meaning is Peace.
Now I will quote some Verses of Quran and Hadith of Prophet Muhammad Saw regarding Peace and against terrorism. Allah Swt says in Holy Quran "whoever kills an single innocent it is as if he has killed the whole mankind and whoever saves a single human it is as he has saved the whole of humanity. Killing an innocent person is included in seven biggest sings according to Islam. According to a Hadith of Prophet Saw if a War takes place it is forbidden to kill Kids, Women, Old People and destroying fields. There are hundreds of such other Quran Verses and Hadiths of Prophet Saw that speaks against Terrorism and Peace. You can see above Verse of the Quran calls Killing of a single innocent person as killing of whole Humanity while above Hadith Forbids Killing Kids, Women, Old Man even if a War takes place. Now My Question is that which other religion calls Killing a single innocent Human as killing the whole humanity and which other religion stops from killing Kids, Women and Old man even in war? It is only Islam. This is why i Call Islam the most Peaceful religions of the World. Now another question that will come in minds of many people that if Islam Is a Peaceful religion then why it talks about Jihad? To get the answer of this question you will have to understand the meaning of Jihad. Jihad means to struggle against injustice. Jihad does not mean killing innocent Humans. Even Bible and Veda talks about struggling against injustice. Islam never allows Killing any innocent human and killing any innocent human is completely forbidden in Islam. May Allah Swt help us all in understanding the Islam correctly.
Almost all the Major religion believes in the life after death in different ways.If we talk about Hinduism the Hindus believes in Punar Janam which means that man again takes birth in this World after death and this process continues. The Christians believes that after death those who believes in Crucifixion of Prophet Jesus PBUH will go to Heaven while others will go to hell. Now I came towards the Islamic Belief about Life After Death that is also my topic of today. Islamic Belief about Life After death is that whoever will do good deeds in this World and will Worship God will go to Heaven and a person who will do bad deeds will go to Hell.
Muslims Believes that this life is a test for hereafter and if we will do good works in this world we will enter Heaven and if we will do bad deeds will will enter hell. When a Muslim dies his Funeral is offered after giving him bath and then he is buried. Funeral is actually a pray for the person who is died. on the day of Judgement all the Humans will be presented in front of Allah Swt and they will be shown what they have done in this life. Allah Swt replies to those in Holy Quran who rejects Judgement and says that how we can become alive again after dying? Allah Says in Quran if we can give you this life is it difficult for us to alive you again? no it is very easy for us. Allah Swt also says in Quran that those who done good deeds in the World and worshiped me will enter the Heaven and those who rejected our Signs and done bad deeds will go to Hell that is a very bad place. Islamic Belief about Life After Death is very logical as compare to Beliefs of other Religions. because it tells us that we will get Heaven or Hell according to our deeds in this World. May Allah Swt help us in doing Good deeds and enter us in Paradise after Death.
Today my topic is a very interesting one and i am often asked about it by many youngsters and Patents that does Islam allows Co-Education system (Joint Education system for Girls and Boys) or not? First of all we need to understand that Islam gives great importance to Morals and to Chasity and Modesty in the Society. For this purpose Islam wants lot of cautiousness when dealing with the people from opposite sex. For this purpose Islam gives us some Guidelines such as Hijab, Lowering your Gaze and avoiding Free Mixing. Islamic Laws are given to us by Allah Swt who knows better than anyone that what is good for humans and what is bad?
There is a Natural attraction between Male and Female. Female by nature is desire to be looked at adored as well as cherished. on other hand Male is inclined to look at female. So therefore Allah Swt has warned us against our own nature and told to take some necessary safeguards that i have told above already. As Far as Education is concerned it is the right of every Male and Female to get Education and its a Virtue to get Education. But if we talk about Co-Education is completely Haram according to Islamic Guidelines and it causes many harms. I will like to mention some of the Harms of Co-Education below. In Co-Education Boys and Girls Concentrate on each other more as compare to studies. Co-Education can take Girls and Boys to Haram ways of Zina. Co-Education can effect the studies. There are many other Harms that Co-Education causes. If in any cause it is necessary to get Co-Education following steps should be followed. Girls should wear modest Cloths. Girls and Boys should sit separately. An Hurdle like big cloth should be arranged between Girls and Boys so that they don,t see each other. So these where some tips i wanted to share about Co-Education. Parents should try to send their Kids to institutions that don,t have Co-Education to save themselves from wrong paths. May Allah Swt help us in getting Education for good purposes.
Our Religion Islam guides us about the rights of other Humans that we should give to them and according to Quran and Hadiths near Allah Swt Humans rights has great Importance. According to a Sahih Hadith a man that will came on day Judgement with lot of Virtues but he not treated other humans well in the World so Allah Swt will send him to Hell. Attending the Funeral of other Muslim after his death is obligatory on a Muslim and right of the person who is died. According to Sahih Hadith a Muslim have five rights on other Muslim in which attending the Funeral is also included. Attending Funeral of died person is actually a pray for him and when we attend Funeral of someone we are actually praying for him to Allah Swt.
These days Many People do un-Islamic things on deaths of others like shouting and hitting yourself that are completely Forbidden. On death of others we should do Patience and pray for the person who is died instead of doing un-Islamic acts. However the tears that comes in eyes on death of anyone are a natural thing. When we will attend Funeral of someone it increases the strength of relations between Momins and gives Patience to close relatives of died person. So we should always attend the Funeral of others and Pray for him. May Allah Swt help us to pray for those who are no more with us.
Today my topic is very sensitive one and it is Divorce which in Urdu is known as Talaq. Islam which have cleared all the matters of life and guided us about everything all explains the Procedure and rulings about the Divorce. According to Sahih Hadith Divorce is a very hateful thing near Allah Swt and it must be given only in case of absolute necessity. Sometimes things becomes so much complicated between wife and Husband that they can,t live together anymore so in this case Divorce is given to get separate. A man who wants to divorce his wife should do it after thinking and consideration. Giving Divorce in Anger is not correct so a man should not Divorce her wife in anger.
In Islam a couple not remains husband wife when three Divorces takes place. Now i come towards another important issue related to Divorce that did three Divorces takes place at same time? If we read Sahih Hadith at one time only one Divorce can takes places and then second and third Divorces can take place after periods of times. Even if a man gives three divorces at same time only one divorce takes place. Some people thinks that three divorces can take place at same time. But if we read Hadiths during the time of Prophet Muhammad Saw only one Divorce could take place at a time. Also at time Hazrat Abu Bakar Khilafat one Divorce could took place at one time. at time of Hazrat Umar too many people started giving divorces and watching this Hazrat Umar imposed the law that three divorces can take place at same time as a punishment. So the correct Sunnah way is that only one Divorce can take place at one time. If we accept that three divorces can take place at same time it will create lot of problems because many people gives three Divorce same time in anger and when their anger ends they came to know that they have given three divorces. After giving three Divorces at same time they do another Haram thing to marry again that is known as Halala. According to Sahih Hadith Halala is completely Haram. May Allah Swt help us all in using Sunnah way in every matter of our life.
