noureddine7 asked: Assalamualeikum, i have a question: Why do u say (as) after imam Ali ibn abi talib? He just was a companion of the prophet Mohammed salla allahu alayhi wa sallam. It should be (ra) radiallahoe a3nhoe
Peace and many blessings,
Only Allah knows the true status of a personality, but some Muslims find purpose in measuring the nobility of a personality related to the Prophet — presenting it a part of their theological belief — in order to recognize the persons who have sacrificed immensely for the sake of God.
While some Muslims might believe that Imam Ali ibn abi Talib was merely a companion of Muhammad, other Muslims believe that he was presented a very holy status in the religion of Islam by Allah; Muslims with both beliefs have their historical, theological, and narrative justifications for proving their point, but at the end of the day, whatever our opinion is, it is up to us to respect each other’s positions.
In terms of the Arabic definition of both (RA) and (AS), alayhi salam literally translates to: peace is with him. RadhiyaAllah anh translates as: may Ridha (content or pleasure) of Allah be upon him (who is spoken of). One seems to highlight the fact that peace is with the person spoken of while the other is like that of a supplication, or dua, for the personality. Personally, they are both lovely attributes.
Peace. — Dee.
1dhazzard asked: Asalamu Alaykum :)! I have a really bad problem. My sister is in lack of respect to my mother. She literally makes her cry :(! I try to help and defend my mother but my mother tells me not to (because when I'm mad i have a quick temper) plenty of times ( need i say my mother is 52). I don't no whether to give my mother a hard time (by defending her against my sister) or just stay quiet and let my mother be hurt. :( Jazak'Allah Khayr x Your answer is much appreciated :)
Salam my love,
Nothing in my life has ever moved me like this video on the Rights of your Mother by Zein al Abideen (as)
…if you woke up this morning, may peace and blessings be upon you. because when you woke up, many of your brothers and sisters across the world (not to mention your city in particular) did not wake up. allah has blessed you with one more day. and you didnt even realize that he did. allah is still keeping you alive.
if you have this day for a few more breaths, thank allah. if you have this day to begin praying again, thank allah. if you have this day to make up with whom you fought, thank allah. if you fought with one of your parents a few weeks ago, todays the day to apologize.
allah gave you this day out of his infinite mercy and wisdom. dont take this opportunity for granted. dont take this life as a real way of living because it clearly is only a dream and once we die, well be really awake and questioned for our decision making. this life isnt about the end result, but the means to which we lived. its not about whether you reach the goal, but if your journey was surrounded by sincerity and struggle for the sake of allah.
allah woke you up today. say alhamdulilah, and make that first step. for when you walk to allah, allah runs to you. if you take one step towards allah, allah takes ten steps towards you (hadith qudsi).
…and with every opinion we find people who believe that their stances are not relative at all. as much as people wish to believe in certain opinionated based conclusions, they must also feel obliged to provide much explanation and proof towards their conclusions. it is vital to understand that with every opinion based conclusion, one will find bias (and even judgemental) rulings in which little to no fair assessment is made. an example of this would be people’s claims about islam. islam is a cult, they say, and has little to do with religion.
to argue that islam is a cult, or a set of practicies that are considered abnormal or bizarre, one must understand the implications made with this claim. to believe that a the oneness of god is a deviant belief and behavior that promotes mind-control is quite illogical (and almost witty). islam - in its very essence - is not a new religion. its not a new set of beliefs; rather, it is a reaffirmation of the messages of the prophets mentioned both in the torah and in the bible. it is a reaffirmation and a completion of god’s message onto mankind. and therefore to claim that islam is cult, one would also then conclude that christianity and judaism (along with other religions that promote monotheism) are cults as well.
it is absurd to conclude that a religion that promotes justice, equality in terms of social and economical rights, and describes spiritual necessity is a religion that brain washes society. much research needs to be made before basing subjective opinions when informing people of islam. as much as we have specific dislikes towards certain religious ideologies, it is necessary to be fair and just when informing people of islam.
so no, islam is not a cult. rather, islam is a belief that wishes to promote mindfulness of the human being along with the notion of spirituality in which understanding the existence of allah and allah alone is sufficient enough for us to exist as creatures. and with this mindfulness of allah and fathoming our positions of this world, we can begin to create peace with our brothers and sisters in this world.
Allahuma Salee ‘ala Muhammad wa alee Muhammad
