Understanding Prophet's Life (PBUH)

Understanding the Prophet's Life SAW

One should try not to hurt the feelings of others. There are many things which may hurt others' feelings. Temperamental differences in daily life may cause offence. As a matter of principle, every Muslim should try his best not to upset or hurt others. This is the basis of the grave sin of back-biting. For by back-biting one hurts others' feelings. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) directed that in a gathering of three people, two should not whisper among themselves lest it hurt the feelings of the person who is left out. In a large gathering, however, whispering may not cause offence. The Prophet said: "Do not whisper lest it grieve the third person." (Muslim)

Reflection on the Islamic moral code makes it clear that the avoidance of hurting the feelings of a Muslim is a fundamental principle. It is a serious offence, as is evident from the Prophet's following observation: "Whoever hurts a Muslim is as guilty as if he hurt Allah." (Tabarani) By the same token, if one pleases a fellow Muslim, it is an act of immense blessing accruing from Allah and His Messenger. The Prophet said: "Whoever fulfills the needs of a member of my community and pleases him indeed pleases me. And on doing so pleases Allah, as a result of which he will enter Paradise." (Bayhaqi) This observation by the Prophet is worth noting, for it details that a Muslim is one who embodies love. One who is not kind and affectionate towards others may hurt someone's feelings. One should therefore exercise caution in cracking jokes lest it offend someone.

Understanding the Prophet's Life SAW

One day, the Prophet (peace be upon him) was speaking to his companions when the sun, almost setting, touched the crests of the hill and he said, 'Relative to what has passed, there is as little time left in the world as there is in this day.' [Tirmidhi]

Let the person of intelligence seeking counsel for himself reflect upon this hadith. Let him know what can befall him in the time that remains for the world. Let him know that he is living with illusions and 'confused dreams', and that he may be selling everlasting happiness and everlasting grace for a paltry price. But if he seeks God and the abode of the next world, he will be given his full measure and much more. As the saying goes, 'Child of Adam, sell this world for the next and you will profit from them both. But do not sell the next world for this one, or you will lose them both.'

The Day of Ashura (10th Muharram) Monday November 3rd

Although the month of Muharram is a sacred month as a whole, the 10th of Muharram is the most sacred among all its days. The day is named 'Ashurah'. It is one of the most important and blessed days of Allah SWT in the Islamic calendar.



The Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu-Alayhi-Wasallam) has exhorted and encouraged his Ummah to fast on this day.

 He said: "This fast is a compensation for the (minor) sins of the past year." (Hadith:Muslim)

 "Observe the fast of Aashora and oppose the Jews. Fast a day before it or a day after." (Hadith:Baihaqi)

 Hence, it is important to either fast on the Ninth and the Tenth or the Tenth and the Eleventh of Muharram. To fast only on the day of Aashora is Makrooh (undesirable).
