ALLAH does not change the state of people, until they change it themselves

A Reminder

Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaehi Wasallam) The savior of mankind, from whom flows directly all what is great in modern life.

"And indeed, you are of a great moral character." Surah Al-Qalm:4
Of all the men that have been and all the men there will be, he's the best among them all.

"And raised high for you your repute." Surah Ash-Sharah:4
his (sallallahu alehi wasallam) name is in high regards among all angels and humans.

"It is He who has sent among the unlettered a Messenger from themselves reciting to them His verses and purifying them and teaching them the Book and wisdom - although they were before in clear error -" Surah jumu'a:2
he (sallallahu alaehi wasallam) not only reads and explain to us what is revealed on him but also he purifies us of all the filth that we have inside us.

"Say, [O Muhammad], "O mankind, indeed I am the Messenger of Allah to you all, [from Him] to whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. There is no deity except Him; He gives life and causes death." So believe in Allah and His Messenger, the unlettered prophet, who believes in Allah and His words, and follow him that you may be guided." Surah Al-Aeraf:158
We can be saved only if we follow what he (sallallahu alaehi wasallam) brought to us from Allaah.

"O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you. And if you disagree over anything, refer it to Allah and the Messenger, if you should believe in Allah and the Last Day. That is the best [way] and best in result" Surah Nisa:59
If we want to resolve our disputes however big or small they are, his (sallallahu alaehi wasallam) example is to be followed. In him (sallallahu alaehi wasalam) we can salvage ourselves.

"And whoever has disbelieved - let not his disbelief grieve you. To Us is their return, and We will inform them of what they did. Indeed, Allah is Knowing of that within the breasts." Surah Luqmaan:23

It saddened him to large extents when inhabitants of Makkah didn't believe in his teachings, since he was saving them of themselves, from hellfire. Preaching them the most righteous way.

"We are most knowing of what they say, and you are not over them a tyrant. But remind by the Qur'an whoever fears My threat." Surah Qaaf:45
He took his duty so seriously. He (sallallahu alaehi wasallam) really really wanted them to come under the blessing of Islam. Allaah tala told him;

"So remind, [O Muhammad]; you are only a reminder." Surah Ghashyah:21
That you just have to remind them. you are not the responsible if they don't believe in what we reveal.

"O you who have believed, do not raise your voices above the voice of the Prophet or be loud to him in speech like the loudness of some of you to others, lest your deeds become worthless while you perceive not. Indeed, those who lower their voices before the Messenger of Allah - they are the ones whose hearts Allah has tested for righteousness. For them is forgiveness and great reward" Surah Al-Hujurat:2,3
His respect is imminent all the time. Even people are warned not to speak in loud tones in front of him (sallallahu alaehi wasallam) and also, we shouldn't outspeak him when his name is being taken.

"And those who believe and do righteous deeds and believe in what has been sent down upon Muhammad - and it is the truth from their Lord - He will remove from them their misdeeds and amend their condition."
He is a blessing for us. A pure timeless blessing who has been sent down upon us more than 1400 years ago by Allaah (Subhana wa ta'ala)

so what do we do now? How do we thank Allaah for this huge never-ending blessing? And how do we thank Hazrat Muhammad sallallahu alaehi wasallam for his hard work and heartache for his people?

"Indeed, Allah confers blessing upon the Prophet, and His angels [ask Him to do so]. O you who have believed, ask [Allah to confer] blessing upon him and ask [Allah to grant him] peace." Surah Al-Ahzab:56
send him blessings, O believers.

"Say, [O Muhammad], "If you should love Allah, then follow me, [so] Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful." Surah Al-i-Imran:31
Thing to do, to please both Allaah and Hazrat Mohammad sallallahu alaehi wasallam, act upon what he preached.

Allahumma sally ala muhammadin wa ala aali muhammadin kama sallayta ala ibraaheema wa ala aali ibrahima innaka hameedum majeed. Allahumma baarik ala muhammadin wa ala aali muhammadin kama barakta ala ibrahima wa ala aali ibrahima innaka hameedum majeed.

Rights Of Fellow Humans according Quran-III

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا يَسْخَرْ قَوْمٌ مِّن قَوْمٍ عَسَىٰ أَن يَكُونُوا خَيْرًا مِّنْهُمْ وَلَا نِسَاءٌ مِّن نِّسَاءٍ عَسَىٰ أَن يَكُنَّ خَيْرًا مِّنْهُنَّ ۖ وَلَا تَلْمِزُوا أَنفُسَكُمْ وَلَا تَنَابَزُوا بِالْأَلْقَابِ ۖ بِئْسَ الِاسْمُ الْفُسُوقُ بَعْدَ الْإِيمَانِ ۚ وَمَن لَّمْ يَتُبْ فَأُولَـٰئِكَ هُمُ الظَّالِمُونَ
"O you who have believed, let not a people ridicule [another] people; perhaps they may be better than them; nor let women ridicule [other] women; perhaps they may be better than them. And do not insult one another and do not call each other by [offensive] nicknames. Wretched is the name of disobedience after [one's] faith. And whoever does not repent - then it is those who are the wrongdoers."

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اجْتَنِبُوا كَثِيرًا مِّنَ الظَّنِّ إِنَّ بَعْضَ الظَّنِّ إِثْمٌ ۖ وَلَا تَجَسَّسُوا وَلَا يَغْتَب بَّعْضُكُم بَعْضًا ۚ أَيُحِبُّ أَحَدُكُمْ أَن يَأْكُلَ لَحْمَ أَخِيهِ مَيْتًا فَكَرِهْتُمُوهُ ۚ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّـهَ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّـهَ تَوَّابٌ رَّحِيمٌ
"O you who have believed, avoid much [negative] assumption. Indeed, some assumption is sin. And do not spy or backbite each other. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his brother when dead? You would detest it. And fear Allah; indeed, Allah is Accepting of repentance and Merciful."
Surah Hujrat:11-12

5.8.11

Against Reciprocation

"Oftentimes I lose the chance of doing a bhalai (goodness) because I am following the crowd. I reciprocate the deeds, their behavior towards me. I forget that there's a difference between me and them. Whatever they do, they will reap it. And I will reap my own deeds."


"لَهَا مَا كَسَبَتْ وَلَكُم مَّا كَسَبْتُمْ ۖ وَلَا تُسْأَلُونَ عَمَّا كَانُوا يَعْمَلُونَ"

"It will have [the consequence of] what it earned, and you will have what you have earned. And you will not be asked about what they used to do." Al-Baqarah:141

Why is there any need to mirror others actions then?
It is said that: "Do not ever lose the chance of doing bhalai even the smallest one"

We should avail every chance of it. Like we rush towards those 50% and 70% off neon signs? Exactly!



سَابِقُوا إِلَىٰ مَغْفِرَةٍ مِّن رَّبِّكُمْ وَجَنَّةٍ عَرْضُهَا كَعَرْضِ السَّمَاءِ وَالْأَرْضِ أُعِدَّتْ لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا بِاللَّـهِ وَرُسُلِهِ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ فَضْلُ اللَّـهِ يُؤْتِيهِ مَن يَشَاءُ ۚ وَاللَّـهُ ذُو الْفَضْلِ الْعَظِيمِ

"Race toward forgiveness from your Lord and a Garden whose width is like the width of the heavens and earth, prepared for those who believed in Allah and His messengers. That is the bounty of Allah which He gives to whom He wills, and Allah is the possessor of great bounty." (Surah Al-hadeed:21)

Do not go for "since he/she mistreated me so badly, me too will do to him/her same. even more then that" Remember Hazrat Muhammad sallallahu alaehi wasallam went to ask after an old lady who used to throw thrash on him daily. He looked after her as she had fallen ill. He PBUH reciprocated her mistreat of him with IHSAN.

Why should I speak in lower when the person in front of me is shouting there lungs out at me? Why should I hold back and refrain from using a bad word when that person did? There's this urge to show your set of vocabulary containing all profanities at that moment; but we must know that this set of vocabulary I am going to shower on others is not going to get me any good grades from my Master. In fact I will fall lower and lower.

This reminds me an incident of Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique Razi Allahu tala anha; A non-believer was shouting at Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique R.A. and he was listening to him patiently. Hazrat Mohammad PBUH was with him and he was smiling at his (Hazrat Abu Bakr's) patience, when suddenly that non-believer said something really harsh and Hazrat Abu Bakr couldn't hold back and so retorted. At this, Hazrat Muhammad sallallahu alaehi wasallam's face went all red and he stopped smiling. Hazrat Abu Bakr R.A. asked him; "you were smiling when he was mistreating me and when I replied back, it angered you, why? Hazrat Muhammad PBUH replied
"when you were patiently listening to him, an angel from Allaah SWT was replying back to him from your side and your retort sent him(angel) away."
See the effect of patience? Allaah take matters in His hands when we show patience for Him. Now reflect over the fact, is our getting back to that person is more effective or Allaah's?

We don't know which of the bhalai, did by us, will be so overwhelming that it will be the reason of our salvation on the day of Resurrection. Any of our bhalai can make our scales that Day so heavy that Allaah would give our account of deeds in our right hand.

If the person mistreating us forgot who he/she is, we shouldn't do the same. And who knows, our lower tone and shaista guftgu(decency) in contrast of their "out of control" rage will make them keep their temperaments in check next time.

"And hasten to forgiveness from your Lord and a garden as wide as the heavens and earth, prepared for the righteous" (Aal-Imran:133)
