General

The Khilafat during the reign of Hadhrat Umar (RA) is most definitely a “highpoint” in the colourful history of Islam. Besides volumes being written about it, people across the spectrum actually show immense interest in getting to know more and more about the details of this Khilafa.

The beautiful practice of the noble Sunnah should be “strong blend” of both: the outward (extrinsic) and the internal (intrinsic). Unfortunately, many people have understood the imbibing of the dignified Sunnah of our beloved Nabi (Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam) as merely following the Mubarak (blessed) extrinsic actions only --- e.g. keeping the beard, wearing the trouser above the ankle, eating on the floor, etc. Surely these are great and blessed Sunnah practices --- there is, however, another important side to the equation.

‘Glorified be He Who carried His servant by night from the Inviolable Place of Worship to the Far Distant Place of Worship the neighbourhood whereof We have Blessed , that We might show him of Our tokens ! Lo! He, only He, is the Hearer, the Seer.’ (Bani Israel)

Allah Ta’ala made us as one “Ummah” and the “Ummah” represents an unbroken “continuum” until the Day of Qiyamat. Towards the end of his Mubarak (blessed) life, Nabi (Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: “I have left with you two directives, you will never go astray, as long as you hold onto them (adhere to them strictly) --- the Book of Allah and the Sunnah”.

Charity (Sadaqa) is a great gift from Allah Ta’ala. The act of giving and donating, generates spiritual elevation and revitalises the Iman. Allah Ta’ala loves the act of charity. In the Mubarak (blessed) words of our beloved Nabi (Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam) reported by Asma bint-e-Abu Bakr (RA) that:

Every Prophet (AS) upheld the concept and institution of marriage (nikah). In this way --- the most natural way --- the progeny remains “legitimate and pure”.
