» 11. Prophet Muhammad's Last Sermon
... from the verses of The Noble Qur'an
His Throne does extend over the heavens and the earth, and He feels no fatigue in preserving them, for He is the Most High, the Supreme.( Qur’an, 2:255)
... from the sayings of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)
Abu Hurairah May Allah be pleased with him) reported that "One day Allah's Messenger (May peace and blessings be upon him) appeared before the public. Then a man came to him and asked: “Prophet of Allah, what is Iman?” Upon this he (the Holy Prophet) replied: “That you affirm your faith in Allah, His angels, His Books, His meeting, His Messengers and that you affirm your faith in the Resurrection hereafter. He (again) asked: “Messenger of Allah, what does Islam signify?” He (the Holy Prophet) replied: “Islam signifies that you worship Allah and do not associate anything with Him and you perform the prescribed Prayer and you pay the obligatory poor-due (Zakah) and you observe the Fast of Ramadan. He (the inquirer) again asked: “Messenger of Allah, what does Al-Ihsan (Faithfulness) imply?” He (the Holy Prophet) replied: “That you worship Allah as if you are seeing Him, and in case you fail to see Him, then observe that He is seeing you. He (the inquirer) again asked: “Messenger of Allah, when would there be the Hour of (Doom)?” He (the Holy Prophet) replied: “The one who is asked about it is no better informed than the inquirer. I, however, will narrate some of its signs (and these are): When the female-slave will give birth to her master, when the naked, barefooted would become the chiefs of the people; these are some of the signs of (Doom). (Moreover) when the shepherds of the black (camels) would exalt themselves in buildings, this is one of the signs of (Doom). (Doom) is one of the five (happenings wrapped in the unseen) which no one knows but Allah. Then he The Messenger of Allah (May peace and blessings be upon him) recited (the verse): “Verily, Allah! With Him (Alone) is the knowledge of the Hour, He sends down the rain, and knows that which is in the wombs No person knows what he will earn tomorrow, and no person knows in what land he will die Verily, Allah is All­Knoweing, All­Aware (of things) He (the narrator, Abu Hurairah) said: Then the person turned back and went away. Allah's Messenger (May peace and blessings be upon him) said: “Bring that man back to me. They (the Companions of the Holy Prophet present there) went to bring him back, but they did not find him. Upon this Allah's Messenger (May peace and blessings be upon him) remarked: “He was Gabriel. He came to teach people their religion."
» Sister Sira reverted on November 12, 2005
I was doing research on a different religion and I looked into Islam to find out why these two religions always at war. The more I did research on the other religion, the less I liked it and the more I researched Islam, the more I liked it.
