Hayaa & Imaan

Haya itself is derived from the word hayat which means life. This term
covers a wide number of concepts. In English, it may be
translated as modesty, shyness, self-respect, bashfulness,
shame, honour, humility, etc. The original meaning of Haya
according to a believer’s nature, refers to a bad and uneasy
feeling accompanied by embarrassment, caused by one’s fear
of being exposed or censured for some unworthy or indecent
conduct. .

Strengthening One’s Memory

Some ways of strengthening one’s memory include: Keeping away from sin,
because the bad effects of sin result in a bad memory and
the inability to retain knowledge. Frequently remembering
Allaah, may He be glorified, by reciting dhikr, tasbeeh
(saying ‘Subhan Allaah’), tahmeed (‘Al-hamdu Lillaah’),
tahleel (‘Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah’) and takbeer (‘Allaahu
akbar’), etc. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“…And remember your Lord when you forget…” [al-Kahf 18:24].
Not eating too much, because eating too much makes one sleep
too much and become lazy, and it dulls the senses, besides
exposing one to the risk of physical diseases. Most of the
diseases which we see result from food and drink. Some of
the scholars have mentioned certain foods which increase the
memory, such as drinking honey and eating raisins and
chewing certain kinds of gum resin. Another thing that can
help the memory and reduce forgetfulness is cupping (hijaamah)
of the head, as is well known from experience. (For more
information see Al-Tibb al-Nabawi by Ibn al-Qayyim). And
Allaah knows best. .



The Battle Of Badr

By Kamal El-Mekki. Anas bin Malik narrated that on the day of the
battle of Badr, the Messenger of Allah said: Stand up and
face Paradise, the width of which is like the heavens and
earth Umair bin al Hamam said: O Messenger of Allah,
Paradise the width of which is like the heavens and earth
The Messenger of Allah said: Yes Umair was eating from some
dates in his hand. He said: If I am going to live as long as
it takes to finish eating these dates thats a long time! and
he threw away the dates and rushed to the battlefield and
was killed. (Muslim al Hakim) .

End of Music

O Muslim, lawful things have good attributes Where is the good in
singing, dancing and listening to flutes? Can we compare the
words of singers and sounds of Musicians To the Glorious
Quran, its lessons, wisdoms and admonitions? How many
singers do you know and give admiration, And how many do you
know of the companions and the following generation? How
much do you spend on singers from your dollars? Compared to
how many you know of Islamic Scholars. Do you see how much
is memorized of Music songs? While you ignore the book to
which memorization belongs? How much do you memorize of
these incantations? And swayed back and forth in
intoxication? Have you not seen those who follow the
misguided? And increase the loudness of the Music, when they
should hide it? And who writes their songs? thinkers, or men
of academia? Or maybe scholars, like Ahmad, Malik or maybe
ibn Taymiyah. O you who listens to music.. Don’t you see
that All the songs of the world and all the lyrics you’ve
seen Wouldn’t compare in reward to Alif Laam Meem .



Eating Habits in Ramadan

By Kamal El-Mekki. The Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and
grant him peace) addressed his companions on the last day of
Sha`ban, saying, “Oh people! A great month has come over
you; a blessed month; a month in which is a night better
than a thousand months; month in which Allah has made it
compulsory upon you to fast by day, and voluntary to pray by
night. Whoever draws nearer (to Allah) by performing any of
the (optional) good deeds in (this month) shall receive the
same reward as performing an obligatory deed at any other
time, and whoever discharges an obligatory deed in (this
month) shall receive the reward of performing seventy
obligations at any other time. It is the month of patience,
and the reward of patience is Heaven. It is the month of
charity, and a month in which a believer’s sustenance is
increased. Whoever gives food to a fasting person to break
his fast, shall have his sins forgiven, and he will be saved
from the Fire of Hell, and he shall have the same reward as
the fasting person, without his reward being diminished at
all.” [Narrated by Ibn Khuzaymah]
