LINKS OF THE PROPHETS

LINKS OF THE PROPHETS

"We have sent you inspiration, as We sent it to Nuh and the Messengers after him: We sent inspiration to Ibrahim, Isma'il, Ishaq, Yakub & the tribes, to Isa, Yunus, Harun and Sulayman, and to Dawud we gave The Zabur (Psalms}" (Q4:163)

ONE RELIGION

Allah's Prophet (PBUH) said:

 "Both in this world and in the Hereafter, I am the nearest of all the people to Jesus, the son of Mary The prophets are paternal brothers; their mothers are different, but their religion is one." (Bukhari)

Point to Ponder: They are brothers from Allah! Not enemies or opponents.

A GOOD DREAM

The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said:

A good dream is a forty-sixth part of prophethood. " (Bukhari& Muslim)

Point to Ponder: Sleep well and pray that Allah favours you with good dreams.

 

BUILT TOGETHER

The Prophet (PBUH) said:

"The way in which I may be compared with the other Prophets is like a house beautifully built, but in which the place of one brick was left incomplete. Sight-seers went round admiring the beauty of its construction with the exception of the place for that brick. Now I have filled up. The place of that brick, with me the building is completed and with me the Messengers are complete." (Bukhari& Muslim)

Point to Ponder: Each brick is needed to make a complete building. All prophets (PBUT) were needed to complete the divine message.

A PORTION OF IT

The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said:

A good manner of conduct, deliberation and moderation are a twenty-fourth of prophethood. " (Al-Tirmidhi)

Point to Ponder: Claim a portion of prophet hood be good, be moderate.

THERE FOR ONE ANOTHER

The Prophet (PBUH) said:

"Nuh (AS) will be brought (before Allah) on the Day of Resurrection and will be asked, 'Did you convey the message of Allah?' He will reply, 'Yes, 0 Lord! And then Noah's nation will be asked, 'Did he (Nuh) convey Allah's message to you?'They will reply, 'No Warner came to us'. Then (Nuh) will be asked, 'Who are your witnesses'? He will reply 'my witnesses are Muhammad (PBUH) and his followers’. (Bukhari)

Point to Ponder: "Thus have we made you An Ummat justly balanced. That you might be witnessed over the nations and the Messenger a witness over yourselves ... " (Q2:143).

FINAL MESSENGER

The Messenger (PBUH) said:

"i am the seal of the Prophets; there will be no prophets after me". (Abu Daud)

STEP BY STEP

The Prophet (PBUH) said: " ... if one man is guided on the right path (i.e. converted to Islam) through you, it would be better for you than (a great number of) red camels (the most precious possession).” (Tirmidhi)

Point to Ponder: If you bring someone to Islam you'll have a share in all his/her good deeds.

THE MESSAGE

The Prophet (PBUH) said:

"0 People, if you follow these (Qur'an & Sunnah) you will never go astray. All those who listen to me shall pass on my words to others and those to others again; and may the last ones understand my words better than those who listen to me directly". (Bukhari)

Point to Ponder: Keep on passing the message of Islam. On and on.

A TIME Will COME

The Prophet of Allah (PBUH) said:

"0 Muslims! Allah has commanded you to call people to do good deeds, and prevent them from committing sins; otherwise a time will come when you will pray to Him but He will not listen to you; you will ask your needs of Him, but He will not grant them; you will demand His help against your enemies, but He will not help you". (Bin Majah).

Point to Ponder: Lets us call people to Islam. Start with your immediate family and friends.

CHARITY INCLUDES •••

Allah's Messenger (PBUH) said:

"Enjoining all that is good is sadaqa (charity)." (Bukhari)

Point to Ponder: Charity is not only giving out material things. Encouraging the doing of good is also charitable.

NO WAY OUT

The Prophet (PBUH) warned:

"Whoever sees a. forbidden thing being done, he should prevent it by the use of his hand; and if he can not, then he should prevent it with his tongue; and if he cannot, then he should at least consider it an evil deed in his heart and this is a very low level of faith." (Muslim & Tirmidhi).

Point to Ponder: Reject the forbidden acts/sins; in your heart, with your voice or with your hand.

WE CAN DO THIS

The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said:

".... you should restrain every tyrant from tyranny and invite him towards truth and justice". (Abu Daud &Tirmidhi)

Point to Ponder: Tyrants (cruel, unjust or oppressive ruler) should not be allowed to oppress. For oppression it is a sin/crime and tyranny destroys a community.

" ... When they (i.e. Muslims) stop enjoining good and forbid-ding evil, they will be deprived of the blessings of the Revelation". (Tirmidhi)
