hadith


Mu’adh bin Jabal reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “O Mu’adh, do you know what is Allah’s right upon His servants?” I said, “Allah and His Messenger know best.” The Prophet said, “To worship Him alone and to join none in worship with Him; and do you know what is their right upon Him?” I replied, “Allah and His Messenger know best.” He said, “Not to punish them if they do so.”

[Sahih Bukhari, Book 93, Number 470]

عَنْ مُعَاذِ بْنِ جَبَلٍ قَالَ قَالَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَا مُعَاذُ أَتَدْرِي مَا حَقُّ اللَّهِ عَلَى الْعِبَادِ قَالَ اللَّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ أَعْلَمُ قَالَ أَنْ يَعْبُدُوهُ وَلَا يُشْرِكُوا بِهِ شَيْئًا أَتَدْرِي مَا حَقُّهُمْ عَلَيْهِ قَالَ اللَّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ أَعْلَمُ قَالَ أَنْ لَا يُعَذِّبَهُمْ

The problems with our life in the modern world:


The problems with our life in the modern world:

1. We over complicate our life
2. We over analyse everything
3. We clutter our mind
4. We betray our feelings
5. We torment our heart
6. We are terrified of failure
7. We never show our feelings
8. We eat our way to our grave
9. We pretend to be depressed
10. We hate facing the real world

The solution is simple - Live in this world as a traveller or a stranger. In other words:
1. In life be honest with yourself and others
2. Embrace simplicity in all matters
3. Do not accumulate clutter and unnecessary material possession 4. For your own sake eat less and weigh less
5. And finally, wake up and smell the coffee - this world is only temporary, many have come and gone, you will soon join them.

Alaq –The clinging to Uterus


Alaq –The clinging to Uterus

If we continue to examine the facts announced to us in the Qur’an, about the formation of human beings, we again encounter some very important scientific truth.
When the sperm of the male unites with the ovum of the female, the essence of the baby to be born is formed. This single cell, known as a “zygote” in biology, will instantly begin reproducing by dividing, and eventually become a “piece of flesh,” called an embryo. This, of course, can only be seen by human beings with the aid of a microscope.
The embryo, however, does not spend its developmental period in a void. It clings to the uterus, with something like roots that is firmly fixed to the earth by its tendrils. Through this bond, the embryo can obtain the substances essential to its development from the mother’s body.
Here, an important miracle of the Qur’an is revealed. While referring to the embryo developing in the mother’s womb, Allah uses the word “alaq” in the Qur’an:

096.001► اقْرَأْ بِاسْمِ رَبِّكَ الَّذِي خَلَقَ
096.002► خَلَقَ الإنْسَانَ مِنْ عَلَقٍ
096.003► اقْرَأْ وَرَبُّكَ الأكْرَمُ


Recite: In the name of your Lord Who created man from alaq. Recite: And your Lord is the Most Generous. (Qur’an, Al-Alaq- 96:1-3)


The meaning of the word “alaq” in Arabic is “a thing that clings to some place.” The word is literally used to describe leeches that cling to a body to suck blood.
Certainly, the use of such a specific word for the embryo developing in the mother’s womb, proves once again that the Qur’an is the word of Allah, the Lord of all the Worlds.

jesus


All authority has been "GIVEN" to Jesus by the Father (God)? How can Jesus be "God" if he was "GIVEN" this authority? So before Jesus was "GIVEN" this "authority", what was he? He was a no body. What kind of God was he before he was GIVEN all this authority? If Jesus is co equal with the Father (God), why would Jesus need the Father to give him the authority If he is God himself?

hadith of Paradise

Hadith on Paradise: The people of Paradise receive the ultimate reward of never displeasing Allah forever
Abu Sa’eed Al-Khudri reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Verily, Allah will say to the people of Paradise: O people of Paradise! They will say: We are at your service, our Lord, all goodness is in Your hand! Allah will say: Are you satisfied? They will say: Why should we not be satisfied when You have given us what you have not given to any other creation? Allah will say: Shall I not give you something better than that? They will say: O Lord, what could possibly be better than that? Allah will say: I will bestow upon you My pleasure and I will never be displeased with you afterwards.”

[Sahih Muslim, Book 40, Number 678

عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ الْخُدْرِيِّ أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَقُولُ لِأَهْلِ الْجَنَّةِ يَا أَهْلَ الْجَنَّةِ فَيَقُولُونَ لَبَّيْكَ رَبَّنَا وَسَعْدَيْكَ وَالْخَيْرُ فِي يَدَيْكَ فَيَقُولُ هَلْ رَضِيتُمْ فَيَقُولُونَ وَمَا لَنَا لَا نَرْضَى يَا رَبِّ وَقَدْ أَعْطَيْتَنَا مَا لَمْ تُعْطِ أَحَدًا مِنْ خَلْقِكَ فَيَقُولُ أَلَا أُعْطِيكُمْ أَفْضَلَ مِنْ ذَلِكَ فَيَقُولُونَ يَا رَبِّ وَأَيُّ شَيْءٍ أَفْضَلُ مِنْ ذَلِكَ فَيَقُولُ أُحِلُّ عَلَيْكُمْ رِضْوَانِي فَلَا أَسْخَطُ عَلَيْكُمْ بَعْدَهُ أَبَدًا

Charity And Happiness



Charity And Happiness


A great text had drew my attention in Allah’s book ….

A great text had drew my attention in Allah’s book be he blessed and exalted which confirms on the importance of expenditure and charity with a little amount of money to poor, and god confirms in this noble text that who expend his money for the sake of god will not be afraid or sad, so he will be happy, Allah the almighty says : (The likeness of those who spend their wealth in the Way of Allah, is as the likeness of a grain (of corn); it grows seven ears, and each ear has a hundred grains. Allah gives manifold increase to whom He wills. And Allah is All-Sufficient for His creatures’ needs, All-Knower.(261) Those who spend their wealth in the Cause of Allah, and do not follow up their gifts with reminders of their generosity or with injury, their reward is with their Lord. On them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. (262)) verses 261-262(ALBAKARA).

There are many verses that links between charity and human happiness in the world and in the hereafter, but a recent research had been issued and published by magazine of sciences confirm on this Quranic reality!!! This scientific news was published on the website of the BBC that the researchers had found a relation between expenditure and happiness, so I would like to transfer the exact text from the website with a comment with a verse or Hadith on each part of it:

“Canadian researches says that earning huge amounts of money don’t bring happiness to human, but expending money on the others makes human happy. a team of researchers in British Colombia university says that expending any amount of money on others even a five dollars makes psyche happy.

They confirm that the expenditure is essential even with a little amount, isn’t the same with what our prophet confirmed when he said: (avoid the fire even with half a date)!! Also it was confirmed by Quran as god be he exalted said:( Let the rich man spend according to his means; and the man whose resources are restricted, let him spend according to what Allah has given him. Allah puts no burden on any person beyond what He has given him. Allah will grant after hardship, ease. ) Verse 7 (ALTALAAK).

Also it was stated in the published research in the magazine of sciences that employees who spent part of their earned incentives were happier than others who didn’t do the same. Researchers had made studies on 630 person as they asked them to estimate their happiness, their annul income and details about their monthly expenditures which includes paying bills, what they buy for themselves and gifts for others. Head of the team professor Elizabeth Dan says" we wanted to examine our theory that the importance of how people spend their money is equally to how they earn that money” also she says regardless the earned income people who spent money on others were more happier than who spent it on themselves.

That is the results of their researches, and that what god told us when he link between expending and getting rid of fear and sadness which is earning the happiness:( Those who spend their wealth (in Allah’s Cause) by night and day, in secret and in public, they shall have their reward with their Lord. On them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.) Verse 274(ALBAKARA) and says:( Is there any reward for good other than good?) Verse 60(ALRAHMAN).

After that the team started to evaluate degree of happiness of 16 workers in an organization in Boston before and after receiving incentives (between $3000 and $8000). From the results it seemed that it wasn’t important amount of incentive but the important was how people spent that incentive. As those who spent or donate with a big portion of their incentive on others said they got benefits more than people who spent their incentive on their needs.

This result made us believes that when people spend money, they will not lose and money will not be decreased but it increases!! Wasn’t that confirmed by our prophet peace be upon him when he said:( spent money in charity doesn’t decrease)? So whatever you spend form that money it will not decrease but it increases as this spending gives a feeling of happiness which allow people to think correctly to get money in a better way.

So, god undertakes to double the spent money, god says: (Who is he that will lend to Allah a goodly loan so that He may multiply it to him many times? And it is Allah that decreases or increases (your provisions), and unto Him you shall return) verse 245(ALBAKARA). We read about Bill Gates the richest man in the world that he decided to donate with a big portion of his wealth which is about tens of billions because he felt that it is essential to do this to feel with happiness !!!

In another experiment researchers gave each person of a group of 46 persons 5$ or 20$ and they asked them to spend it by the evening of the same day at five o’clock, and they asked half of participants to spend the money on themselves and the others to spend it on other people.

People who spent money on others said they feel happy more than people who spent the money on themselves, regardless the value of money they spent. Dan says: this study gives an initial indication that the way people spend their money has the same importance as how much they earn.

Here we remember our prophet peace be upon him when Aisha gave a sheep as an alms but she kept the shoulder to the prophet because he like to eat it, so she said: the sheep was gone but the shoulder was remained, so he said: don’t say that but say shoulder was gone and rest of the sheep was remained !!as he likes to spend more than to keep, and this is one of the secrets of happiness that discovered by scientists.

Today researchers confirm that one of earning money reasons is to spend part of it on those who need it. Which means that spending is a reason of Livelihood reasons and that was confirmed in the Quran in the linking between spending and generous Livelihood, god be he exalted says:( Who perform As-Salât (Iqâmat-as-Salât) and spend out of that we have provided them. (3) It is they who are the believers in truth. For them are grades of dignity with their Lord, and Forgiveness and a generous provision (Paradise). (4)) verse 3, 4(ALANFAL).

Professor Elizabeth says:” spending money on others could be an efficient way to achieve happiness more than spending money on the person himself”. And Doctor George Feldman the Psychology Specialist in the new Buckingham University says:” donating for charity works makes you feels better because you are in a group. Also it makes people looks at you as if you prefer others on yourself. So if I gave you anything it will reduce the probability of attacking me by you and increase the probability of treating me well by you."

They put an abbreviated advice in says: “don’t hoard money” here we remember the Divine warning:( O you who believe! Verily, there are many of the (Jewish) rabbis and the (Christian) monks who devour the wealth of mankind in falsehood, and hinder (them) from the Way of Allah (i.e. Allah’s religion of Islamic Monotheism). And those who hoard up gold and silver [Al-Kanz: the money, the Zakât of which has not been paid] and spend them not in the Way of Allah, announce unto them a painful torment.(34) On the Day when that (Al-Kanz: money, gold and silver the Zakât of which has not been paid) will be heated in the Fire of Hell and with it will be branded their foreheads, their flanks, and their backs, (and it will be said unto them): "This is the treasure which you hoarded for yourselves. Now taste of what you used to hoard." (35))Verses 34, 35 (ALTAWBA).

God imposed (Zakât), because he wants us to be happy, and he warned us to not to hoard money by non spending in welfare and science fields, and may be the best kind of spending is to spend on correcting the west perspective about Islam, through spending on the Quranic researches that aim to show the grandeur of Islam and our prophet peace be upon him, and look at this marvelous verse: (Say: "Truly, my Lord enlarges the provision for whom He wills of His slaves, and (also) restricts (it) for him, and whatsoever you spend of anything (in Allah’s Cause), He will replace it. And He is the Best of providers.”) Verse 39 (SABAA).

  1. The Pilgrimage
    In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
    [22:1]
    O mankind! Fear your Lord. Lo! the earthquake of the Hour (of Doom) is a tremendous thing.

    [22:2]
    On the day when ye behold it, every nursing mother will forget her nursling and every pregnant one will be delivered of her burden, and thou (Muhammad) wilt see mankind as drunken, yet they will not be drunken, but the Doom of Allah will be strong (upon them).

    [22:3]
    Among mankind is he who disputeth concerning Allah without knowledge, and followeth each froward devil;

    [22:4]
    For him it is decreed that whoso taketh him for friend, he verily will mislead him and will guide him to the punishment of the Flame.

    [22:5]
    O mankind! if ye are in doubt concerning the Resurrection, then lo! We have created you from dust, then from a drop of seed, then from a clot, then from a little lump of flesh shapely and shapeless, that We may make (it) clear for you. And We cause what We will to remain in the wombs for an appointed time, and afterward We bring you forth as infants, then (give you growth) that ye attain your full strength. And among you there is he who dieth (young), and among you there is he who is brought back to the most abject time of life, so that, after knowledge, he knoweth naught. And thou (Muhammad) seest the earth barren, but when We send down water thereon, it doth thrill and swell and put forth every lovely kind (of growth).

    [22:6]
    That is because Allah, He is the Truth and because He quickeneth the dead, and because He is Able to do all things;

    [22:7]
    And because the Hour will come, there is no doubt thereof; and because Allah will raise those who are in the graves.

    [22:8]
    And among mankind is he who disputeth concerning Allah without knowledge or guidance or a scripture giving light,

    [22:9]
    Turning away in pride to beguile (men) from the way of Allah. For him in this world is ignominy, and on the Day of Resurrection We make him taste the doom of burning.

    [22:10]
    (And unto him it will be said): This is for that which thy two hands have sent before, and because Allah is no oppressor of His slaves.

    [22:11]
    And among mankind is he who worshippeth Allah upon a narrow marge so that if good befalleth him he is content therewith, but if a trial befalleth him, he falleth away utterly. He loseth both the world and the Hereafter. That is the sheer loss.

    [22:12]
    He calleth, beside Allah, unto that which hurteth him not nor benefiteth him. That is the far error.

    [22:13]
    He calleth unto him whose harm is nearer than his benefit; verily an evil patron and verily an evil friend!

    [22:14]
    Lo! Allah causeth those who believe and do good works to enter Gardens underneath which rivers flow. Lo! Allah doth what He intendeth.

    [22:15]
    Whoso is wont to think (through envy) that Allah will not give him (Muhammad) victory in the world and the Hereafter (and is enraged at the thought of his victory), let him stretch a rope up to the roof (of his dwelling), and let him hang himself. Then let him see whether his strategy dispelleth that whereat he rageth!.

    [22:16]
    Thus We reveal it as plain revelations, and verily Allah guideth whom He will.

    [22:17]
    Lo! those who believe (this revelation), and those who are Jews, and the Sabaeans and the Christians and the Magians and the idolaters - Lo! Allah will decide between them on the Day of Resurrection. Lo! Allah is Witness over all things.

    [22:18]
    Hast thou not seen that unto Allah payeth adoration whosoever is in the heavens and whosoever is in the earth, and the sun, and the moon, and the stars, and the hills, and the trees, and the beasts, and many of mankind, while there are many unto whom the doom is justly due. He whom Allah scorneth, there is none to give him honour. Lo! Allah doeth what He will.

    [22:19]
    These twain (the believers and the disbelievers) are two opponents who contend concerning their Lord. But as for those who disbelieve, garments of fire will be cut out for them; boiling fluid will be poured down on their heads,

    [22:20]
    Whereby that which is in their bellies, and their skins too, will be melted;

    [22:21]
    And for them are hooked rods of iron.

    [22:22]
    Whenever, in their anguish, they would go forth from thence they are driven back therein and (it is said unto them): Taste the doom of burning.

    [22:23]
    Lo! Allah will cause those who believe and do good works to enter Gardens underneath which rivers flow, wherein they will be allowed armlets of gold, and pearls, and their raiment therein will be silk.

    [22:24]
    They are guided unto gentle speech; they are guided unto the path of the Glorious One.

    [22:25]
    Lo! those who disbelieve and bar (men) from the way of Allah and from the Inviolable Place of Worship, which We have appointed for mankind together, the dweller therein and the nomad: whosoever seeketh wrongful partiality therein, him We shall cause to taste a painful doom.

    [22:26]
    And (remember) when We prepared for Abraham the place of the (holy) House, saying: Ascribe thou no thing as partner unto Me, and purify My House for those who make the round (thereof) and those who stand and those who bow and make prostration.

    [22:27]
    And proclaim unto mankind the pilgrimage. They will come unto thee on foot and on every lean camel; they will come from every deep ravine,

    [22:28]
    That they may witness things that are of benefit to them, and mention the name of Allah on appointed days over the beast of cattle that He hath bestowed upon them. Then eat thereof and feed therewith the poor unfortunate.

    [22:29]
    Then let them make an end of their unkemptness and pay their vows and go around the ancient House.

    [22:30]
    That (is the command). And whoso magnifieth the sacred things of Allah, it will be well for him in the sight of his Lord. The cattle are lawful unto you save that which hath been told you. So shun the filth of idols, and shun lying speech,

    [22:31]
    Turning unto Allah (only), not ascribing partners unto Him; for whoso ascribeth partners unto Allah, it is as if he had fallen from the sky and the birds had snatched him or the wind had blown him to a far-off place.

    [22:32]
    That (is the command). And whoso magnifieth the offerings consecrated to Allah, it surely is from devotion of the hearts,

    [22:33]
    Therein are benefits for you for an appointed term; and afterward they are brought for sacrifice unto the ancient House.

    [22:34]
    And for every nation have We appointed a ritual, that they may mention the name of Allah over the beast of cattle that He hath given them for food; and your God is One God, therefor surrender unto Him. And give good tidings (O Muhammad) to the humble,

    [22:35]
    Whose hearts fear when Allah is mentioned, and the patient of whatever may befall them, and those who establish worship and who spend of that We have bestowed on them.

    [22:36]
    And the camels! We have appointed them among the ceremonies of Allah. Therein ye have much good. So mention the name of Allah over them when they are drawn up in lines. Then when their flanks fall (dead), eat thereof and feed the beggar and the suppliant. Thus have We made them subject unto you, that haply ye may give thanks.

    [22:37]
    Their flesh and their food reach not Allah, but the devotion from you reacheth Him. Thus have We made them subject unto you that ye may magnify Allah that He hath guided you. And give good tidings (O Muhammad) to the good.

    [22:38]
    Lo! Allah defendeth those who are true. Lo! Allah loveth not each treacherous ingrate.

    [22:39]
    Sanction is given unto those who fight because they have been wronged; and Allah is indeed Able to give them victory;

    [22:40]
    Those who have been driven from their homes unjustly only because they said: Our Lord is Allah - For had it not been for Allah’s repelling some men by means of others, cloisters and churches and oratories and mosques, wherein the name of Allah is oft mentioned, would assuredly have been pulled down. Verily Allah helpeth one who helpeth Him. Lo! Allah is Strong, Almighty -

    [22:41]
    Those who, if We give them power in the land, establish worship and pay the poor-due and enjoin kindness and forbid iniquity. And Allah’s is the sequel of events.

    [22:42]
    If they deny thee (Muhammad), even so the folk of Noah, and (the tribes of) A’ad and Thamud, before thee, denied (Our messengers);

    [22:43]
    And the folk of Abraham and the folk of Lot;

    [22:44]
    (And) the dwellers in Midian. And Moses was denied; but I indulged the disbelievers a long while, then I seized them, and how (terrible) was My abhorrence!

    [22:45]
    How many a township have We destroyed while it was sinful, so that it lieth (to this day) in ruins, and (how many) a deserted well and lofty tower!

    [22:46]
    Have they not travelled in the land, and have they hearts wherewith to feel and ears wherewith to hear ? For indeed it is not the eyes that grow blind, but it is the hearts, which are within the bosoms, that grow blind.

    [22:47]
    And they will bid thee hasten on the Doom, and Allah faileth not His promise, but lo! a Day with Allah is as a thousand years of what ye reckon.

    [22:48]
    And how many a township did I suffer long though it was sinful! Then I grasped it. Unto Me is the return.

    [22:49]
    Say: O mankind! I am only a plain warner unto you.

    [22:50]
    Those who believe and do good works, for them is pardon and a rich provision;

    [22:51]
    While those who strive to thwart Our revelations, such are rightful owners of the Fire.

    [22:52]
    Never sent We a messenger or a prophet before thee but when He recited (the message) Satan proposed (opposition) in respect of that which he recited thereof. But Allah abolisheth that which Satan proposeth. Then Allah establisheth His revelations. Allah is Knower, Wise;

    [22:53]
    That He may make that which the devil proposeth a temptation for those in whose hearts is a disease, and those whose hearts are hardened - Lo! the evil-doers are in open schism -

    [22:54]
    And that those who have been given knowledge may know that it is the truth from thy Lord, so that they may believe therein and their hearts may submit humbly unto Him. Lo! Allah verily is guiding those who believe unto a right path.

    [22:55]
    And those who disbelieve will not cease to be in doubt thereof until the Hour come upon them unawares, or there come unto them the doom of a disastrous day.

    [22:56]
    The Sovereignty on that day will be Allah’s, He will judge between them. Then those who believed and did good works will be in Gardens of Delight,

    [22:57]
    While those who disbelieved and denied Our revelations, for them will be a shameful doom.

    [22:58]
    Those who fled their homes for the cause of Allah and then were slain or died, Allah verily will provide for them a good provision. Lo! Allah, He verily is Best of all who make provision.

    [22:59]
    Assuredly He will cause them to enter by an entry that they will love. Lo! Allah verily is Knower, Indulgent.

    [22:60]
    That (is so). And whoso hath retaliated with the like of that which he was made to suffer and then hath (again) been wronged, Allah will succour him. Lo! Allah verily is Mild, Forgiving.

    [22:61]
    That is because Allah maketh the night to pass into the day and maketh the day to pass into the night, and because Allah is Hearer, Seer.

    [22:62]
    That is because Allah, He is the True, and that whereon they call instead of Him, it is the false, and because Allah, He is the High, the Great.

    [22:63]
    Seest thou not how Allah sendeth down water from the sky and then the earth becometh green upon the morrow ? Lo! Allah is Subtile, Aware.

    [22:64]
    Unto Him belongeth all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth. Lo! Allah, He verily is the Absolute, the Owner of Praise.

    [22:65]
    Hast thou not seen how Allah hath made all that is in the earth subservient unto you ? And the ship runneth upon the sea by His command, and He holdeth back the heaven from falling on the earth unless by His leave. Lo! Allah is, for mankind, Full of Pity, Merciful.

    [22:66]
    And He it is Who gave you life, then He will cause you to die, and then will give you life (again). Lo! man is verily an ingrate.

    [22:67]
    Unto each nation have We given sacred rites which they are to perform; so let them not dispute with thee of the matter, but summon thou unto thy Lord. Lo! thou indeed followest right guidance.

    [22:68]
    And if they wrangle with thee, say: Allah is Best Aware of what ye do.

    [22:69]
    Allah will judge between you on the Day of Resurrection concerning that wherein ye used to differ.

    [22:70]
    Hast thou not known that Allah knoweth all that is in the heaven and the earth ? Lo! it is in a record. Lo! that is easy for Allah.

    [22:71]
    And they worship instead of Allah that for which He hath sent down no warrant, and that whereof they have no knowledge. For evil-doers there is no helper.

    [22:72]
    And when Our revelations are recited unto them, thou knowest the denial in the faces of those who disbelieve; they all but attack those who recite Our revelations unto them. Say: Shall I proclaim unto you worse than that ? The Fire! Allah hath promised it for those who disbelieve. A hapless journey’s end!

    [22:73]
    O mankind! A similitude is coined, so pay ye heed to it: Lo! those on whom ye call beside Allah will never create a fly though they combine together for the purpose. And if the fly took something from them, they could not rescue it from it. So weak are (both) the seeker and the sought!

    [22:74]
    They measure not Allah His rightful measure. Lo! Allah is Strong, Almighty.

    [22:75]
    Allah chooseth from the angels messengers, and (also) from mankind. Lo! Allah is Hearer, Seer.

    [22:76]
    He knoweth all that is before them and all that is behind them, and unto Allah all things are returned.

    [22:77]
    O ye who believe! Bow down and prostrate yourselves, and worship your Lord, and do good, that haply ye may prosper.

    [22:78]
    And strive for Allah with the endeavour which is His right. He hath chosen you and hath not laid upon you in religion any hardship; the faith of your father Abraham (is yours). He hath named you Muslims of old time and in this (Scripture), that the messenger may be a witness against you, and that ye may be witnesses against mankind. So establish worship, pay the poor-due, and hold fast to Allah. He is your Protecting friend. A blessed Patron and a blessed Helper!
