The Best Act of Worship: Humility

"Aisha (Radi Allahu Anha) said: " People are paying no attention to the best act of worship: Humility."

Collected by Ibn Abee Shaybah (13/360) Ibn Hajr graded this Athar as being Saheeh.

Benefits for this subject:
At-Tabari (may Allah have mercy on him) said: "Allah tests His believing servants with humility to see how they obey Him and follow His commands."
[ Saheeh Bukhari Ibn Battal ]

Shaykh Abdur Rahman As-Sa'dee (May Allah rest him in Jannah) said, "Humility and Humbleness are among the foundations of the religion and its core whereas, pride contradicts Islam.

The origin of humility is found in the verse: (سَمِعْنَا وَأَطَعْنَا) (We hear and obey) [ Al-Baqarah 285].

This means we hear what you have said our Lord in the Quran and what Your Messenger has said.

Humility and pride are two distinct traits that aren’t hidden from anyone. Let's look at the differences between the two:

The humble person submits to the truth no matter who it comes from. He doesn’t care about his old views, speech or position. He aides the truth whenever it becomes clear to him its right.

The arrogant stubborn one clings inflexibly to his speech, actions and ways. In fact he has a high opinion of his speech and deeds. When the truth is made clear to him, he turns up his nose arrogantly; as he's amazed with himself. Having this trait lowers a person to a very low status.

The person with humility spreads the greetings of peace to the young and old, to those of high status and low. He treats everyone the same.

The conceited person doesn’t give salaams or even look at the needy and poor. He has no concern for their needs and he won't even intermingle with them.

The humble individual is loved by Allah and His servants. He is always close to good and distant from evil, sin and transgression.

The arrogant one is hated by Allah and His servants. He is always distant from piety and righteousness and close to evil, sin and transgression.

Humbleness is a quality to the Prophets and Messengers. This attribute is for the God fearing and Guided. Arrogance is a characteristic of the tyrants and oppressors.

Humility increases a person's nobility and raises his status until he eventually reaches the ranks of those loved and pleased by Allah. How many humble people attain love and charity!  How many times is a person with humility praised! How often do people supplicate to Allah for a modest man!

On one hand, there isn’t a humble person to Allah, except that the Most Merciful raises his rank.  On the other hand, there isn’t an arrogant person except Allah lowers his status [ Majmu' As-Sa'dee vol 22/ 150-153]

Saudi Grand Mufti slams anti-Islam film, calls attacks on foreign embassies un-Islamic

Saudi Arabia’s Grand Mufti, the highest religious authority in the birthplace of Islam, on Saturday denounced attacks on diplomats and embassies as un-Islamic after deadly protests against a U.S.-made film mocking Islam’s founder.
Sheikh Abdulaziz bin Abdullah Al al-Sheikh also called on governments and international bodies to criminalize insults against prophets and excoriated the film that has prompted a wave of fury across the Middle East.
“It is forbidden to punish the innocent for the wicked crimes of the guilty, or to attack those who have been granted protection of their lives and property, or to expose public buildings to fire or destruction,” he said in a speech carried by state news agency SPA.
Describing the release of the crudely made short film as “miserable” and “criminal”, he added that attacks on the innocent and diplomats “are also a distortion of the Islamic religion and are not accepted by God.”
At least nine people were killed after noon prayers on Friday in demonstrations across the Middle East.
Washington sent extra troops to guard its embassies after the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans were killed in an attack on a U.S. mission in Libya on Tuesday. The violence spread to Egypt, Lebanon, Tunisia, Sudan, Yemen and elsewhere.
There have been no reports of anti-American demonstrations in Saudi Arabia, a key Arab ally of the United States and country that holds significant influence over the world’s 1.6 billion Muslims via its guardianship of Mecca and Medina.
Al al-Sheikh’s statement echoed the official position taken by Saudi Arabia on Thursday, condemning both the film and attacks on U.S. embassies.
Earlier on Saturday, al-Qaeda’s regional wing based in Yemen called on Muslims to kill American diplomats in Islamic countries and step up protests against the film.

HIJAAB IN THE LIGHT OF QUR'AN AND HADITH Answered by Mufti Ebrahim Desai

QUESTION: I would like to know about Hijab in the light of Qur'an & Hadith as how our Muslim women should cover their body? Some people are saying that covering of face is not necessary and also not prescribed through our religion and thus only body can be covered. What are the opinions of most prominent Islamic scholars or four Imams?

ANSWER: Is it necessary for a woman to cover her face in the presence of strangers (who are not her designated Mahaarim) according to Shariáh? This question is answered in this article in the context of the claim that the veil or Niqaab is primarily 'a social requirement and custom according to the environment and custom, and according to the environment and customs of a particular country.' In endeavouring to answer the question, we will confine ourselves to a brief examination of the relevant Qurãnic verses.

Surah An-Nur, Verses 30 and 31

'And Say to the believing women to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts) and not to show off their adornment except only that which is apparent (like both eyes for necessity to see the way, or outer palms of hands or one eye or dress like veil, gloves, head-cover, apron), and to draw their veils all over Juyubihinna (i.e. their bodies, faces, necks and bossoms) and not to reveal their adornment except to their husbands, or their fathers, or their husband's fathers, or their sons, or their husband's sons, or their brothers or their brother's sons, or their sister's sons, or their (Muslim women) (i.e. sisters in Islam), or the (female) slaves whom their right hands possess, or old male servants who lack vigour, or small children who have no sense of feminine sex. And let them not stamp their feet so as to reveal what they hide of their adornment. And all of you beg Allah to forgive you all, O believers, that you may be successful'

It is apparent that upon a plain reading the purpose of the verse is to eradicate promiscuity, fornication and adultery and all the preliminary steps that lead directly to the commission of such shameful acts. The references to 'lowering their gaze', 'drawing their veils over their bosoms' and 'striking their feet to draw attention' indicate that all acts or omissions which in the ordinary course leads directly to sexual promiscuity and FITNAH are forbidden.

In order to totally eradicate sexual promiscuity and FITNAH, the verse goes on to say that a woman is not permitted to display her beauty and charms except in degrees to her husband, father and the other classes of person specified in the verse. The exempt class would constitute the MAHAARIM, and any other would qualify as strangers or GHAIR MAHRAM. The principle fixed by the verse is, therefore that a woman cannot display her beauty to any male person other than the persons exempted by the verse. It goes without saying that the face is the focal-point of a woman's beauty, and the main source of attraction. Hence, the face of a woman cannot be displayed or shown to a stranger in normal circumstances whether in public or private according to the general principle fixed by the verse as stated above. She is permitted to display her beauty to the exempt class (the MAHAARIM) for obvious reasons of close contact, and because of the considerably lesser danger of sexual promiscuity and FITNAH within that class. (Zamakhshari)

The Shariáh, however, is practical, dynamic and takes into account the real situations of life. A woman may in the case of genuine need be forced to expose her face in the presence of strangers. For example, when she appears in court to give witness, etc.

It is against this background that the preceding portion of the verse 'they should not display their beauty and charms except what must ordinarily appear unavoidable' falls into proper perspective. The words 'Illaa maa dhahara min'haa' are in context an exception to the general rule, and cover those cases of genuine need and necessity when a woman is forced to expose her face in the presence of a stranger. That is how the great commentators of the Noble Qurãn have interpreted the verse.

Take the following two examples,

'Women must not display any part of their beauty and charms to strangers except what cannot possibly be concealed.' (Ibn Katheer)

'Why is the woman permitted to display her external beauty and charms? Because to conceal that would cause her inconvinience. A woman is forced to deal in commodities with her own hands. She is compelled by genuine need to expose her face especially at the times of giving evidence, litigating in court and marriage. She is compelled to walk the streets and expose her feet, especially poor women. This is the meaning of 'illaa maa dhahara min'haa' that is 'except what the situations of ordinary life compel her to expose'. (Zamakhshari)

A further point is the interpretation of 'illaa maa dhahara min'haa' has been highlighted by the well known scholar, Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (RA). He states that the verb used is that of the first form 'dhahara' and not 'adhhar' which in forth form signifies a deliberate exposure or display. The use of 'maa dhahara' indicates that the exposure of the face is confined to need. (Imdaadul Fataawa vol. 4 p. 181)

It follows from the aforegoing that upon a proper interpretation of the verse the face and hands of a woman can only be exposed to strangers in a situation of genuine need where concealment would cause her serious inconvinience. However, genuine need is not open to wide interpretations.


'...And when you ask them for anything you want, ask them from behind a screen...'

The meaning of this verse is clear: the companions of the Holy Prophet (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) were ordered to communicate with the wives of Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) from behind a screen and not directly face to face. It is obvious that this instruction is not limited to the wives of the Holy Prophet (Sallallaau Álayhi Wasallam). The verse has general application and the fact that the noble wives of Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) are specifically mentioned emphasises the importance of the subject matter. The distinguished jurist, Abubakar Jassa (RA) in his Ahkaamul Qurãn states:

'This order, although revealed specifically in relation to the Holy Prophet (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) is general in application because we are ordered to follow him.'

Similarly, the well known commentator of the Noble Qurãn, Imaam Qurtubi (RA) in his Al-Jamia li Ahkaamul Qurãn states:

'All women are in effect covered by the terms of the verse which embraces the Sharée principle that the whole of a woman is 'Áwrah' (to be concealed) - her body and voice, as mentioned previously. It is not permissible to expose those parts except in the case of need, such as the giving of evidence...'


'O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (veils all over their bodies (i.e. screen themselves completely except the eyes or one eye to see the way)...'

In his commentary to this verse, Allama Abubakar Jassas (RA) states the following:

'This verse proves that a young woman is ordered to cover her face from strangers, and to manifest SATR and modesty in public so that doubtful people may not be desirous of her.'

It is sufficient to quote the following authentic commentators in their interpretation of the verse:

'They (women), shall cover their faces and bodies with their outer garment when they appear in public for a valid reason.'

'They shall cover their faces and...'

Ibn Ábbaas (Radhiallaahu Ánhu) states that the Muslim women are ordered to cover their head and faces with outer garments except for one eye.'

And Allah Taãla Knows Best.

Inna Lillahi Wa Inna Ilayhi Raaji'oon

So the cars that you own, the houses that you live in, the businesses you possess all truly belong to Allaah. The kids that He blessed you with, the health that He gave you, the time that He has allowed you are all Allah's property.  Even the bodies we live in and the life that we have belong to Allaah alone.

"And to Allah belongs the inheritance of the heavens and the earth…." (Surah Aal-Imraan: 180)
"The kingdom of the heavens and the earth and everything in them belongs to Allah. He has power over all things." (Surat al-Ma'ida: 120)
'Say: 'To Allah belongs the East and the West…' (Surah al-Baqarah: 142)

Now, since everything belongs to Allaah, then we have to include even our souls in that list.
The very souls that we think of as our "self"; our "nafs"; our "being" -- whatever you want to call it -- that very thing that distinguishes you from the rest of the world, belongs to Allaah.. It's not YOURS.
In fact, YOU are not YOURS.  You belong to Allaah.  And this is the essence of the concept of slavery to Allaah in Islam.  And since He is the true Possessor of everything, and everything is His property, He allots what He wills to whomever He wills…….and then He takes it away. After all, it was Allaah's to begin with.  So He may give you something and then take it back after a while..  He will bless you with a precious child that you love dearly…and then He may take it away.
He will grant you money, honors and status….and then He may take it away.
He will give you youth, vitality and health and then surely He will take it away.

In fact everything you have will only be with you for a very short while. And then the Owner will claim His Right. So when Allaah does reclaim what was rightfully His, WHY MOURN OUR LOSSES?

Just like a friend who lends you his book. And then after a few days, he wants it back and you give it back to him…no regrets… sorrow….no questions asked.  Similarly, if Allah takes back some of His blessings upon you for some reason….so be it.
Say Alhamdulillah.
Don't grieve.
Be patient.
Submit to the will of Allaah, being pleased with His decision for you. For surely He will only do what is best for you.
Just think…..The Owner came and took it back.
Remember….that you're not the real owner… were NEVER the real owner to begin with. You only had everything because it was Allah who gave it to you in the first place. If He didn't give it to you, you wouldn't have had it in any way…in fact, you couldn't have had it.

Remember….man enters into this world empty handed…and leaves it empty handed.
Remember….that everything we have, all the blessings we enjoy, are gifts from Almighty that we enjoy for a limited period until He takes them away whenever He deems fit.

They are a trust from Allah…a loan to you…to see how you respond to these gifts from Allaah and how you use them….in the obedience of the Almighty, thanking Him and worshipping Him……OR…… the disobedience to the One Who gave then to you in the first place...

Take note of the words of the Prophet (Sal AllaahuAlaiyhiwaSallam) on the occasion of the death of his son, Ibraahim:
'Our eyes are filled with tears, our hearts with grief, but we say nothing with our lips except that which pleases Allah.... Verily, to Allah we belong, and to Him we return.' (Bukhaari)
And we all know the famous incidence about the companion Abu Talha and his wife when one of the sons died and Abu Talha was not at home. She washed and shrouded him and when Abu Talha came home and asked about his son, she said, 'The child is quiet and I hope he is in peace….' (Bukhaari)

SubhaanAllaah….such patience!
And such Imaan in the statement "Inna lillaahiwainnailayhiRaaji'oon"!
She truly understood its meaning and the affect it should have on her life as a Muslimah, submitting to him and being pleased with whatever He has decreed for her.
She knew that whatever she has, is not truly hers. Rather, it is Allaah's….and He took back whatever He owns at its appointed time.
And it is because of this Imaan so strong, this understanding, that the Prophet (Sal AllaahuAlaiyhiwaSallam) made dua for them and Allaah blessed them immensely.
"'They (i.e. Abu Talha and his wife) had nine sons and all of them became reciters of the Quran (by heart)." (Bukhaari)
"Be sure we will test you with something of fear and hunger, some loss in goods or lives, but give glad tidings to those who are steadfast, who say when afflicted with calamity: 'To Allah we belong and to Him is our return.' They are those on whom (descend) blessings from Allah and mercy and they are the once that receive guidance." (al-Baqarah: 155)

Saudi mufti condemns anti-US violence

Saudi Arabia's mufti or spiritual leader Sheikh Abdelaziz al-Sheikh on Saturday condemned as un-Islamic violent protests against an anti-Muslim Internet film made in the United States.
The mufti also denounced the film's dissemination, which he considered "a criminal act," but called on demonstrators to "not turn legitimate protests into unauthorised provocative acts," in a statement quoted by the official news agency SPA.
"Such acts damage the Muslim religion, are not permitted by God and are incompatible with the teachings of the Prophet" Mohammed, he said, hoping for "the criminalisation of attacks on sacred figures" in monotheistic religions.
He said those promoting the film wished to "turn Muslims away from their goals, which are building their countries, reinforcing their unity and the pursuit of development."
"The best response for Muslims to such attacks is to get on with developing and building their countries," he said.
The low-budget film produced in the United States, "Innocence of Muslims," incited a wave of bloody anti-American violence in Egypt, Libya, Sudan, Tunisia, Yemen and several other countries.
Protests and attacks on foreign embassies have killed at least 11 demonstrators, as well as the US ambassador and three other American diplomatic staff in Libya.
Saudi Arabia, home to Islam's holiest religious sites, on Thursday condemned the American film but also denounced the deadly attacks in reaction to it, offering its "condolences to the United States on the victims of the violence that targeted the US consulate in (the Libyan city of) Benghazi."

Fears of 'carnage' as anti-US protests hit UK

The wave of protests over a film made in the United States that mocks the Prophet Mohammed has spread to the United Kingdom.
Muslims have marched in London as violent demonstrations
After the call to prayer at the Regent's Park mosque, about 200 people joined a protest march from the mosque to the US Embassy.
They held placards reading "America is the enemy of Islam and Muslims", and "Islam will dominate the world".
"Do not remain silent while they insult your messenger," the protest leader told the crowd.
The protest remained peaceful, but demonstrators set fire to a US and an Israeli flag.
Saiful Islam, a spokesman from Defenders of the Prophet, expects more protests in the UK and Europe.
"We should all be united in coming out to condemn the actions of these people," he told Saturday AM.
He says the violence - including the - could have been seen coming.
"The thing with these killings and what is happening, obviously this was going to be expected," he said.
"Obviously when you do something like this, it's going to ignite and it's going to cause violence.
"I'm not surprised at all, I'm expecting obviously more carnage and more violence, and it's going to escalate."
The low-budget movie which sparked the protests, Innocence of Muslims, ridicules the Prophet Mohammed and belittles the religion he founded.
It touches on themes of paedophilia and homosexuality, while showing the Prophet sleeping with women, talking about killing children and referring to a donkey as "the first Muslim animal".
One protester in London says the movie shows ignorance about Islam.
"If you think of it, these people who have obviously taken part in this trailer of a movie have no idea of our Prophet and how much we actually love our Prophet," the protester said.
"They've taken it to a whole new level, and you're definitely going to see protests all across the world, not just across Europe."
But other Muslims in London told Saturday AM the violent protests go too far, and that words should only be fought with words.
"To be quite honest, it's quite characteristic of this organisation to convene whenever a reality like this occurs," one bystander said.
"I mean, it's happened all the time."
Another bystander condemned protesters for attacking embassies.
"We are losing support, and we are not giving the true idea of a true Muslim. A true Muslim should be civilised," the bystander said.

Muslims seethe with anger over film


SANAA: The Muslim world seethed with anger yesterday as anger spread over a film mocking Islam.
Demonstrators briefly stormed the US Embassy compound in Yemen yesterday while protesters pelted the Egypt mission with stones after a night of clashes.
Yemeni police used water cannon and fired warning shots to expel protesters who breached the perimeter wall, and at least one demonstrator was shot dead and several others were injured outside the compound as police battled to prevent any new incursion.
Demonstrations were also held in Iraq, Iran, Gaza and Bangladesh as anger over the US-produced movie spread.
The protests came even as US and Libyan officials said they had launched investigations into a mob attack on the consulate in Benghazi that killed the ambassador and three other US officials on Tuesday, amid growing speculation it was the work of jihadist militants rather than just demonstrators.
In Sanaa, some protesters said they saw three vehicles being torched inside the compound before police ejected the demonstrators who had broken through.
After being driven back from the main gate, the crowd regrouped near a checkpoint some 100 meters back, chanting anti-Jewish slogans.
“O, Jews: Khaybar, Khaybar. The army of Mohammed will return,” they shouted, evoking a 7th century war in the west of the Arabian Peninsula in which the Muslims defeated the Jews.
Gaza protest, called by the Hamas Ministry of Religious Endowments, was attended by several hundred Muslims.
Ismail Radwan, Hamas minister of religious endowments, called on the protesters gathered outside the legislative council building in Gaza City to “boycott American products.”
He called for new demonstrations to be held after Friday prayers.
Protesters held banners reading “Where are you Muslims, when your prophet is being insulted?“
In Tel Aviv, around 60 Arab-Israeli protesters demonstrated outside the US Embassy, in a protest called by the Islamic Movement in Israel. “We came to protest against the producers of this movie and the United States which allowed it to be made,” protester Zahi Nijidat told AFP.
Demonstrators chanted slogans against US President Barack Obama and criticized the film.
In Cairo, police fired tear gas to disperse the latest protest outside the embassy by stone- and bottle-throwing demonstrators, which came after a night of sporadic clashes in which the health ministry said 16 people were injured.
Armored vehicles were deployed around the mission, an AFP correspondent reported.
On Tuesday night, protesters stormed the compound, tearing down the Stars and Stripes and replacing it with a black Islamic flag.
Egypt’s President Muhammad Mursi condemned the offense caused by the US-produced movie but warned against resorting to violence.
“We Egyptians reject any kind of assault or insult against our prophet. I condemn and oppose all who... insult our prophet,” he said in remarks broadcast by state television.
“(But) it is our duty to protect our guests and visitors from abroad,” Mursi said. “I call on everyone to take that into consideration, not to violate Egyptian law... not to assault embassies.”
In the Iranian capital Tehran, up to 500 people protested, chanting “Death to America!” and to the movie’s director.
In Dhaka, about 1,000 Muslims tried to march on the US Embassy in Dhaka yesterday to protest against the film, police and witnesses said. Members of the Khelafat Andolon demonstrated in the capital and threatened to step up their protests after they were blocked from approaching the US Embassy. There were no reports of violence.
“We will stage bigger protests over the issue and may also besiege the US Embassy,” said Moulana Hemayetuddin, a senior leader of the group. The protesters wearing white caps threw their fists in the air as they chanted anti-US slogans. They burned a US flag and demanded an immediate apology from the United States.
On Wednesday, protests were held outside US missions in Morocco, Sudan and Tunisia. In Tunis, police fired tear gas to disperse a crowd of several hundred.
