Everyone shall taste death. And only on the Day of Resurrection shall you be paid your wages in full. And whoever is removed away from the Fire and admitted to Paradise, he indeed is successful. The life of this world is only the enjoyment of deception (a deceiving thing).
Abdullah ibn Amr reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Fasting and the Quran will intercede for the servant on the Day of Resurrection. Fasting will say: O Lord, I prevented him from food and drink during the day, so allow me to intercede for him. The Quran will say: O Lord, I prevented him from sleeping during the night, so allow me to intercede for him. Thus, they will both intercede for him.”
عن النبي صلى الله علية وسلم قال: (من فطر صائما كان له مثل اجره غير أنه لا ينقص من أجر الصائم شئ) رواه الترمذي
The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Whoever feeds a person who is breaking his fast will earn the same reward as his without anything being lessened from the reward of the fasting person.”
"Surely Allah will not forgive the association of partners [Shirk] with Him, but He forgives [sins] less than that of whomever He wishes.....". (Qur'an 4: 48)
Because the sin of shirk denies the very purpose of man's creation, it is to God the gravest of sins, the unforgivable sin.
Shirk literally means partnership, sharing or associating, but Islamically it refers to the act of assigning partners to Allah in whatever form it may take.
In the Yoruba religion, followed by over 10 million people in west Africa (mainly Nigeria), there is one supreme God, Olorius (Lord of Heaven) or Olodumare. Nevertheless, modern Yorubas commit Shirk in Rububiyah by turning over all of God's functions to minor gods and spirits.
The Zulus of South Africa believe in one God, unkulunkulu, meaning the ancient, the first, the most revered one. The principal specific titles for God are Nkosi yaphezulu (Lord of the Sky) and uMuvelingqanqi (the first to appear). Their supreme being is represented as a male, who, along with the earth female, brings forth the human world. Thunder and Lightning are as acts of God, whereas sickness and other troubles in life may be caused by the ancestors, the idolizi or abaphansi (those under the earth). The ancestors also protect the living, ask for food, are pleased with ritual and sacrifice, punish neglect and take possession of fortune tellers (inyanga). Thus Shirk in Rububiyah takes place in the Zulu religion not only by their concept of the creation of the human world, but also in their attribution of good and evil in human life to the work of ancestrial spirits.
Among some Muslim people, Shirk in Rububiyah is manifested in their belief that the souls of saints and other righteous humans can affect the affairs of this world, even after their deaths. Their souls, it is believed can fulfill one's needs, remove calamities, and aid whoever calls on them. Therefore, grave worshippers assign to human souls the divine ability to cause events in this life which in fact only Allah subhana wa ta ala can cause. Common among many Sufis (Muslim mystics) is the belief in "Rijal al-Ghayb" (men of the unseen) the chief of whom occupies the station called "Qutub" from which the affairs of this world are governed.
I'm new to Islam; I reverted only 3 weeks ago. I'm very excited about Ramadan, but today I accidentally woke up late. Someone told me that I can't fast if I haven't eaten or prayed fajr at the right time. Should I fast or not?
Praise be to Allaah. First of all we are happy to hear that Allaah has guided you to Islam, and we ask Allaah to help you to do that which He loves and which pleases Him.
Secondly, if a Muslim sleeps and misses a prayer, and does not wake up until after the time for that prayer is over, then he should not ignore it, rather he should offer the prayer whenever he wakes up. And there is no sin on him for that, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever forgets a prayer or sleeps and misses it, let him offer it as soon as he remembers, for there is no expiation apart from that.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 597; Muslim, 684.
In response to your question:
What was said to you is not correct; you have to complete your fast on that day.
If a Muslim does not eat suhoor or does not wake up for Fajr, this is not counted as a reason for him not to fast.
So you have to continue your fast. If you broke your fast, thinking that you did not have to fast, when Ramadaan is over you have to fast another day to make up for it.
Disse o Profeta Mohammad SAAWS: "É Incrível tudo o que passa com um muçulmano crente (Mu'min), quando lhe passa uma tragédia ele é paciente e isso acaba sendo melhor para ele, e quando passa por uma alegria ele agradece e isso acaba sendo melhor para ele". -Narrado por Muslim-
The sexual revolution has caused women to be primarily looked at as sex objects. In this kind of environment, it should be no surprise that there has been an absolute explosion of pornography in recent years. An astounding 30 percent of all Internet traffic now goes to pornography websites, and the U.S. produces more pornography than any other nation has in the history of the world.
Meanwhile, an entire generation of young males that don’t know how to be men has been raised. The present western culture has taught them to be extremely hesitant to be husbands and fathers, and instead it has taught them to be sex-obsessed idiots that want to “score” with as many women as possible.
Haritha ibn Wahb reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Shall I not tell you about the companions of Paradise? They are every humble person considered weak, but if they gave an oath by Allah it would be fulfilled. Shall I not tell you about the companions of Hellfire? They are every harsh, haughty, and arrogant person.”
