“Give us the good of this world and the next…”

:: Give us the good of this world and the next ::

Narrated by Anas (radiAllahu anhu):

The Messenger of Allah, Muhammad (peace be upon him) used to say: 

“اللَّهُمَّ رَبَّنَا آتِنَا فِي الدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً وَفِي الآخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ “

“O God, give us all the good of this world, and the good of the life hereafter, and save us from the punishment of the fire.”

(Qur’an 2:201)

[Sahih al-Bukhari, Book 65 “Tafseer of the Prophet”, Hadith 4563]

I don’t understand the difference between Sunnah and Hadith!

Is beard a Sunnah or Wajib (commanded)? I was told it is Sunnah, but others say it is Wajib?  What is the difference? Can both be true at the same time or not? I am confused.

The list, however, continues and I am not here to compile the list. Each of these issues will be addressed piece meal inshallah (God Willing) in the Continue reading

Hadith 23: Don’t be fooled by appearances

Anas ibn Malik reports Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said:Allah does not look at your bodies and your faces, but He looks at your hearts and your actions.(Reported by Imam Ahmad, declared Hasan by al-Albani)I guess this is self explanatory.
