The saucer of mercury PDF Print E-mail

The saucer of mercury

This story has been posted here to encourage us not to give up striving spiritually and to get closer and closer to Allah even if we are immersed in a corporate environment or busy rearing children and running a home. Or whatever may be one’s occupation. It’s challenging but the more the challenge, the greater the reward,inshaAllah

There lived a pious man all by himself, who spent most of his time in praying, fasting and praising Allah. Almost all his waking hours were utilised in meditation and devotions. He was very happy with his spiritual progress. No wicked thoughts came to his mind and no evil temptations entered his heart.

One night, he dreamt a rather disturbing dream. He saw that a shopkeeper in the town was far superior to him in spirituality and that he must go to him to learn the basics of true spiritual life.

In the morning, the pious man went in search of the shopkeeper. He found him busy with his customers, selling goods and collecting money with a cheerful face. He sat there in a corner of the shop and watched the shopkeeper carefully. No signs of any spiritual life at all, he said to himself. His dream could not be true. But then he saw the shopkeeper disappear to pray his Salah. When he returned, he was busy dealing with money matters again.

The shopkeeper noticed the pious man sitting in the corner and asked: “As Salamu Alaikum, would you like something, brother?”

“Wa Alaikum As Salam. Oh! No! No!” said the pious man. “I don’t want to buy anything, but I want to ask you a question.” He then related his dream.

“Well, that is very simple to explain,” said the shopkeeper, “but you will have to do something for me before I answer your question.”

“I will do anything for you,” replied the pious man.

“All right! Take this saucer; there is some mercury in it. Go to the other end of the street and come back fast within half an hour. If the mercury falls out of the saucer, you will hear nothing from me. There you go now.”

Behshti Zewar - Beneficial Stories

An Ansaree woman

Ibn Is’haq narrates that the husband, father and brother of an Ansaree woman were all martyred in the battle of ‘Uhud, in which they had participated with Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. When she was informed about this, she replied: "First tell me, how is Rasulullah?" They replied that he is well and alive. She replied: "If he is safe and sound, there is nothing to be sorrowful about."

Lesson: Glory be to Allah! What great love she had for Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam! O women! If you wish to have love for him, follow his Sharee’ah in totality. In this way, you will develop a love for him, and on account of this love, you will receive a stage near him.

Behshti Zewar - Beneficial Stories

Umme Fadl Lubabah bint Harith radiyallahu ‘anha

She is the aunt of Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, the wife of ‘Abbas radiyallahu ‘anhu, and the mother of ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbas radiyallahu ‘anhu. It is mentioned in the Quran that if Muslims are living among the kuffar and they are unable to render the ‘ibadah of Allah, they should leave that place and settle down in a safer area. If they do not do this, they will be committing a major sin. However, women and children who do not know the way nor do they have anyone to accompany them, or are unable to undertake the journey are excluded from this rule. ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbas radiyallahu ‘anhu says: "My mother was from among such persons who were unable to undertake the journey. She was a woman and I was a child."

Lesson: Look at the beauty of her intention. In her heart, she did not wish to live among the kuffar. However, she was forced to do so. Allah therefore had mercy on her and saved her from sinning. O women! You should also make a firm intention in your heart that you will act according to the Deen. Thereafter, there will be hope of you being forgiven in those matters in which you have no alternative. The person who does not make an intention to act according to the Deen cannot save himself from sinning.

The Visit to Madinah PDF Print E-mail
Behshti Zewar - Fiqah

The Visit to Madinah

If it is possible, a person should go to Madinah and visit the blessed grave of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the Musjid-e-Nabawi. This could be done before or after performing hajj. With regard to visiting Madinah, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said: "The person who visits me after my demise will receive the same blessings as the person who visited me during my lifetime." Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also said: "The person who goes for hajj and does not visit me has demonstrated great impoliteness towards me." With regard to Musjid-e-Nabawi, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said: "The person who offers one salaat in it shall get the reward of offering 50 000 salaats." May Allah Ta'ala bless us with this opportunity and may He grant us the success to carry out good and pious deeds. Aameen.

Hajj concluded

14.  The same rule applies to all bequests. If a person had many fasts to keep, many salaats to make qada of or some zakaat to be given, he therefore made a bequest for all this and passed away, then all these payments will have to be made from the one third. It is not permissible to use more than one third without the permission of all the inheritors.

15.  If a person did not make a bequest for hajj-e-badal, it will not be permissible to do so by using the money which he had left behind. But if all the inheritors agree to this, it will be permissible. Insha Allah, the obligation of hajj will be fulfilled. But it should be borne in mind that the permission of an immature inheritor is not considered.

16.  If a woman is in her iddah, she cannot go for hajj.

17.  If a person has sufficient funds for the onward and return journey to Makkah but not sufficient enough to visit Madinah as well, hajj will still be fard upon him. Many are of the incorrect opinion that as long as you do not have sufficient funds to go to Madinah as well, hajj does not become fard. This notion is absolutely wrong.

18.  When a woman is in her ihraam, she cannot cover her face in such a way that the piece of cloth touches her face. These days, a latticed screen or fan is available for this purpose. It should be tied to the face with the screen in line with the eyes and with the burqah worn loosely above it. This is permissible.

19.  The rules and regulations of hajj cannot be understood and remembered without really going on hajj. On going for hajj, one is taught all the rites of hajj, etc. We therefore do not feel it necessary to enumerate these rules and regulations. Similarly, the method of performing umrah can be learnt by going to Makkah.

5.  If the mahram has not reached the age of maturity, or he is so irreligious that he cannot even be trusted with his mother, sister, etc. it will not be permissible to travel with such a mahram as well.

6.  Once a woman finds a reliable mahram, her husband cannot prevent her from going on hajj. Even if he prevents her from going, she should not pay any heed to him and she should continue on her journey.

7.  A girl who is on the verge of reaching the age of maturity cannot go for hajj without a shar'ee mahram. She cannot even go alone.

8.  If a mahram takes a woman for her hajj, all his expenses will have to be borne by the woman. It is wajib upon her to pay him for all his expenses.

OATHS PDF Print E-mail
Behshti Zewar - Etiquette


1.  It is an evil habit to take an oath over trivial matters unnecessarily. In doing this, great disrespect is shown to the name of Allah Ta'ala. As far as possible, an oath should not even be taken on things that are true.

2.  If a person takes an oath in the name of Allah by saying: "I swear by Allah", "I swear by God", "I swear by the power of Allah", or "I swear by the greatness of Allah", the oath will be considered. It will not be permissible to go contrary to the oath. If the name of Allah Ta'ala is not taken, and one merely says: "I take an oath that I will not do such and such work", the oath will still be considered.

3.  The oath will also be considered if the person says: "Allah is a witness", "I am making Allah a witness and saying this", or "I am saying this bearing in mind that Allah Ta'ala is present and listening to what I am saying".

4.  An oath will also be considered if a person says: "I swear on the Quran", "I swear by the word of Allah", or "I swear by the kalaam-e-majeed". If the person takes the Quran in his hand or places his hand on the Quran and says something but does not take an oath, an oath will not be considered.

5.  A person says: "If I carry out a certain act, I will die without Imaan", or "at the time of death I will not be blessed with Imaan". Alternatively, he says: "If I carry out a certain act, I am not a Muslim." In all these cases, the oath will be considered. If he does anything contrary to the oath, he will have to give kaffarah. However, he will not lose his Imaan.
