Fasting Leads to Forgiveness Nov. 1st, 2005 @ 09:49 pm
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: "Whoever fasts the month of Ramadan, obeying all of its limitations and guarding himself against what is forbidden, has in fact atoned for any sins he committed before it."

Fiqh-us-Sunnah, Volume 3, Number 109

When the Prophet stated that people would be granted forgiveness on the last night in Ramadan, he was asked whether it was Laylat al-Qadr ("Night of Power"), he replied: "No, but a workman is paid his full wages only when he has finished his work."

Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 617

Fasting is a Shield Oct. 19th, 2005 @ 06:08 am
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) told his followers: "God said: 'Every action of the son of Adam is for him except fasting, for that is solely for Me. I give the reward for it.' The fast is a shield. If one is fasting, he should not use foul language, raise his voice (in anger), or behave foolishly. If someone reviles him or fights with him he should say, 'I am fasting' (instead of responding in kind).

Feed the Hungry Sep. 30th, 2005 @ 10:13 pm
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: "Feed the hungry, visit the sick and set free the captives."

Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 7, Hadith 552

The Prophet also quoted God as saying: "O son of Adam, I asked you for food and you fed Me not." God was then asked: "O Lord, how should I feed You when You are the Lord of the worlds?" In reply, God said: "Did you not know that My (servant) asked you for food and you fed him not? Did you not know that had you fed him, you would surely have found (the reward for doing so) with Me?"

Hadith Qudsi 18

"Have you ever considered (the kind of person) who denies the Judgment (to come)? Behold, it is (the one) who repulses the orphan (with harshness) and feels no urge to feed the needy."

Seek God's Guidance Jul. 22nd, 2005 @ 03:39 pm
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) used to teach his companions to perform a specific prayer, called "Istikhara," whenever they had to make an important decision. He recommended offering two units of the normal Islamic prayer, and after finishing, saying in part: "O God! If you know that this matter is good for me in my faith, my livelihood and for my life in the Hereafter, then make it (easy) for me. And if you know that this matter is not good for me in my faith, my livelihood and my life in the Hereafter, then keep it away from me and take me away from it, and choose what is good for me wherever it is and make me be pleased with it."

Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 9, Hadith 487
