Status Of The Sunnah in Islam

Status Of The Sunnah in Islam What Is The Sunnah? “And whatever the Messenger gives you, take it, and whatever he forbids you, leave it. And fear Allah: truly Allah is severe in punishment. ” [Qur’an 59:7]

1) The Qur’an speaks of the importance of the Sunnah, for example: (a) Allah says: “He who obeys the Messenger has indeed obeyed Allah…” (an-Nisa’: 80) Allah described obedience to the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) as being a part of obedience to Him. Then He ma … Read More

Maintenance of Law and Order and Enforcement of Hudud

Section E: Maintenance of Law and Order and Enforcement of Hudud

While the act of surveillance* is supposed to be the duty of every Muslim, this cannot be left as a totally voluntary duty. It is for the government to ensure that a group of persons is effectively engaged in this task on a full-time basis. In either case, the government must take a hortatory role and act as a moral force. It is equally the duty of the government to use its force in order to maintain law and order in the country. The Divine scheme of life as enunciated in the Qur’an and Hadith hates fasad (corruption) and zulm (injustice) in the society.

The frequent mention in the Qur’an that Allah does not like fasad and that Allah does not like zulm and the severe admonitions which the Qur’an associates with these vices make it obligatory for an Islamic state not only to suppress these vices but also to plug all the loopholes that lead one to indulge in them. The term fasad is used in the Qur’an to convey the following meanings: Continue reading

Spreading Hadith One Post Per Day- Introduction


Spreading Hadith One Post Per Day” is an objective that I wish to achieve myself in the month of Ramadan.

Hadith are also called Traditions and are the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad, May God’s Peace and Blessings be upon him.

Some may wonder, how come we (Muslims) know what Prophet Muhammad said 1400 years ago? The answer to this question has a long process. For here, I will just say, that the Student (Tabieen) Scholars of the Companions (Sahaba) of Prophet Muhammad SAW, went city after city seeking the Hadith in order to preserve it. Many great Sahaba scholars and Jurists were still alive at that time and since their sincerity to the faith cannot be doubted, their approval to the compilations by students of knowledge cannot be doubted either. It was through intensive check and re check of the chain of narrators and the character of each narrator, memory skill and many other factor, called Science of Hadith. Hadith are rated Authentic-Sahih, Good-Hasan Weak- Daif, and Fabricated- Mawdu.

The Hadith that I would choose would Inshallah (God Willing) be the ones that are being forgotten in practise among Muslims, and/or those that Muslims don’t hear quite often. I will try to have commentary with it. Due to time constraint I won’t be able to collect Ahadith (plural of Hadith) from various different sources and would suffice on the limited access that I have to the Books of Ahadith, which are all Authentic.

However, any one can send me Ahadith at [thekeytopower@gmail.com] considering that the exact source is being sent.

I will try to have Ahadith that can be applied into practise in general. I intent to spread the Ahadith with a hope that somewhere on this planet, someone would learn at least one hadith and will bring it into life through practise, starting from myself first, Inshallah.

I am not a Scholar, and in English, Ahadith are translations and so can only be taken and understood as an abstract, or at Macro level. Even then they are very beneficial and the Sayings of Prophet Muhammad can be applied to our lives even today after 1400 years.

Since I am not a Scholar, any wrong is on my side. I would try my best to write in the same way as it was in the source. Intention is pure, and I hope that unintentional wrong would be forgiven.

Assalam-o-Alaikum
