ARCHERY IN ISLAM

Islam Reigns

By Jamiatul Ulama Gauteng

All praise to Him, The Lord of the universe. Peace and salutations upon the last messenger of Allah Ta’la; Nabi Muhammad ﷺ who was sent as a mercy to mankind.

Sa’d ibn Abi Waqqas رضي الله عنه narrated that the Prophet ﷺ said,”Hold on tight to archery as this is better for you”. Or he said, “It is the best from your games”. [at-Targheeb wa at-Tarheeb]

Is it a coincidence that nearly every culture on Earth developed the bow and arrow independent of one another?

Every culture mastered marksmanship of using the bow and arrow throughout history from the era of ancient Egypt to the Ottoman empire, Roman empire, Persian empire also Eastern Asia. Even in the middle ages the British were known for their longbows. Existence of archery even predates these civilizations by thousands of years with historical proof and records.

Archery was a high…

The Haraam Excesses of Tablighis

Islam Reigns

Question from the U.S.A:

We went for Fajr Salaat. Alhamdulillah. After the Salah a Jamaat brother said, the more you do,
the better. He stated that Hazrat Khalid bin Waleed (Radhiyallahu anhu) went with a Jamaat for dawah
for 6 months to Yemen and nobody became Muslim. Subsequently Hazrat
Ali (Radhiyallahu anhu) went to the same area for 3 days and everyone became Muslim. He stated it was due to his level of effort. I got up and left
because it seemed like a criticism of Sahabah.

Is this not dangerous for one’s Imaan to discuss Sahabah (Radiallahu an-
hum) in this manner. Is this not what Maududi and other modernist did/do?

These incidents makes one not want to join them. Their arrogance is beyond understanding. They act
as if they can give hidayat.

These same brothers are making a 5 and a half million dollar complex in
which…

Shortcomings of Men & Women in Marriage

Sheikhonderun's Weblog

This is an excerpt from Asiya Madni’s interview with Muhammad Ali. Its translated more or less meaning. My notes are in brackets.

What hurts is that both (men and women) are victims, they are oppressors as well. They are suffering due to each other. In the name of fighting against oppression, we are forgetting our own responsibilities. Because of these movements of calling for both women and men’s rights, the negative impact is that relationship Allah (swt) had tied with love has now made them enemies on opposing ends. If we take on this enmity it will take on a form of win and lose battle. Putting aside suffering of entire family, the individual man and woman are going to suffer in their pursuit of harming one another.

We think that perfect marriage model is in lives of people through luck of draw. Some get it and some don’t. It…

Prophet (saw) & not being invited to wedding

Sheikhonderun's Weblog

This is an excerpt from one of Taqi Usmani’s works.

Anas b. Malik reported that Allah’s Apostle (saw) saw the trace of yellowness on ‘Abd al-Rahman b. ‘Auf and said: What is this? Thereupon he said: Allah’s Messenger, I have married a woman for a date-stone’s weight of gold. He said: God bless you! Hold a wedding feast, even if only with a sheep. (Muslim 1427a)

Abdul-Rahman bin `Auf was one of the migrant Companions and he was a distant relative of Prophet (saw). Yet he did not invite the Prophet (saw) to his marriage (Nikah) and hadn’t even told him about it. Only when Prophet (saw) asked him, did he tell him that he got married.

On the other hand, the Prophet (saw) didn’t complain why he hadn’t invited him to his marriage, and rather prayed for him to be blessed.

Marriage was conducted with such simplicity in those…

Visiting the Graveyard on the day of Eid

Islam Reigns

By Ifran Nauyock

Visiting of the graveyard is always a
virtuous and recommended act for men. It is by consensus a Mustahab (preferable) act based on numerous hadiths that have been reported on this issue. [See for example: As-Subki, Shifa as-Siqaam 194, Ad-Dehlawi, Ashi’atul Lum’aat 1/715]

An example of such hadith is the
following:

The Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and grant him peace) said:

“I had prohibited you from visiting the graves; but now I encourage you to visit them, because they are a reminder of the Hereafter” [Abu Dawud 3235]

Visiting graves on the day of the two Eids, Al-Fitr and Al-Adha, is even more
recommended due to a specific hadith
reported encouraging this practice.

Hadhrat Ali (Allah be pleased with him) said: “To raise the voice (that is
reciting aloud) in the prayer of the two Eids is from the Sunnah and to go out too…

ZAKAAT IS ONLY FOR MUSLIMS- THE LIBERAL MOLVIS ARE DEVIATES

Islam Reigns

Question

Mr.M.S.Omar, a secular lawyer in an article claims that it is permissible to give Zakaat to non-Muslims afflicted in areas of disasters. In support of his claim, he cites the resolutions of the Ulama of the Islamic Fiqh Academy. We have always understood that Zakaat may not be given to non-Muslims. What is the correct ruling of the Shariah?

Answer (By Mujlisul Ulama)

The claim of the lawyer chap is bunkum. The Islamic Fiqh Academy is a conglomerate of bootlicking molvis inclined to western liberalism. They have no Shar’i authority. Their resolutions are generally ghutha (rubbish) and should be discarded in sewerage drains and dumps.

The Ummah is aware that there exists Ijma’ on the prohibition of giving Zakaat to non-Muslims. Lillah funds may be used for non-Muslims afflicted with the Punishment of Allah Ta’ala, i.e. the natural disasters, NOT Zakaat. Zakaat and all forms of Waajib Sadqah can…

Eid Mubaarak – Gift of Maghfirah (Forgiveness)

Islam Reigns

[Mujlisul Ulama]

WHAT IS EID?

Eid is the day of happiness and peace of Muslims or so it should be. Unlike the days of festivity of other nations and religions, the Islamic Eid is not a day of raucous Joy and debauchery which marks the festival occasions of non-Muslims. When Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi wasallam) migrated from Makkah Muazzamah to Madinah Munawwarah, he learnt of the two days of festivity which the people had inherited from the time of jaahiliyyah (ignorance).These days of festivals were days of sport, amusement and the usual acts of the lust associated with customs of paganism, shirk and kufr. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi wasallam) changed these two days and substituted them with Eid ul fitr and Eidul Adhaa.

IBAADAT

Unlike the festivals of joy, Merry making and revelry of other nations, the days of Eid of Muslims are adorned with Ibaadat, meditation, resolution to be virtuous, charity…

“Iman does not Increase and Decrease” – Understanding the Creed of Imam Abu Hanifah (Rahmatullah Alayh)

Islam Reigns

By brother Abu Yusuf (@truthunveiled)

I have already discussed this issue in great detail, yet many people still run around on the line trying to squeeze out bogus claims which have been refuted for years.

I will not hold back from giving an aggressive response as the claim maker is too brain dead.

Let’s have a look at the statement:

In Kitab al-Wasiyyah, he states:

“Iman does not increase and decrease, because it describes one’s decrease with the increase of Kufr and one’s increase with decrease in Kufr, so how can one be a believer and disbeliever at the same time?!”

Many will now look at this statement and think to themselves “How can you not believe in increase of decrease of Iman?!”

They may refer to the Ayah from the Qur’an where Allah states:

“The believers are only those who, when Allah is mentioned, their hearts become fearful, and…

MENK THE MUNAAFIQ – DINING, WINING AND WOMANIZING WITH ZIONISTS, FUSSAAQ AND FUJJAAR

Islam Reigns

By Mujlisul Ulama

Menk, the Munaafiq, posing as a Muslim and a Mufti, has just participated in a satanic so-called haraam ‘iftaar’ dinner in Dubai. This mickey mouse munaafiq ‘mufti’ who has repeatedly betrayed Islam and the Ummah now being bereft of any logical or sensible excuse to justify his embrace of the Zionist High Priest at a time when Muslims are being killed in Palestine and Musjidul Aqsa is being pillaged and plundered by the Zionists, has sunk to the very bottom of the barrel ofnajaasatby pleadingsatanic madness.Unable to find even a scrap of justification for his participation in an evil dinner attended by the Zionist priest, fussaaq and fujjaar, this miserable Menk scoundrel says that black magic has been perpetrated on him, hence he isma’zoor.Yes, his brains have become deranged by shaitaani manipulation.

According to him, the black magic has deranged his…
