Prophet Sulaiman was surely one of the best in the line of the Prophets of Allah sent to the people. Allah never sent to the people a Messenger except from the best among them.
And mention in the Book (the Qur’ân, O Muhammad SAW , the story of) Maryam (Mary), when she withdrew in seclusion from her family to a place facing east.
She placed a screen (to screen herself) from them; then We sent to her Our Ruh [angel Jibril (Gabriel)], and he appeared before her in the form of a man in all respects.
She said: “Verily! I seek refuge with the Most Gracious (Allâh) from you, if you do fear Allâh.”
(The angel) said: “I am only a messenger from your Lord, (to announce) to you the gift of a righteous son.”
She said: “How can I have a son, when no man has touched me, nor am I unchaste?”
And We took the Children of Israel across the sea, and Fir’aun (Pharaoh) with his hosts followed them in oppression and enmity, till when drowning overtook him, he said: “I believe that none has the right to be worshipped but He (Allah) in Whom the Children of Israel believe, and I am one of the Muslims (those who submit to Allah’s Will).”
Now (you believe) while you refused to believe before and you were one of the Mufsidun (evil-doers, the corrupters).
So this day We shall deliver your (dead) body (out from the sea) that you may be a sign to those who come after you! And verily, many among mankind are heedless of Our Ayat (proofs, evidence, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.).
And when musa (Moses) came at the time and place appointed by Us, and his Lord (Allah) spoke to him; he said: “O my Lord! Show me (Yourself), that I may look upon You.” Allah said: “You cannot see Me, but look upon the mountain; if it stands still in its place then you shall see Me.” So when his Lord appeared to the mountain , He made it collapse to dust, and musa (Moses) fell down unconscious. Then when he recovered his senses he said: “Glory be to You, I turn to You in repentance and I am the first of the believers.”
[‘Îsa (Jesus) said]: “And verily Allah is my Lord and your Lord. So worship Him (Alone). That is the Straight Path. (Allah’s religion of Islamic Monotheism which He did ordain for all of His Prophets).” (Maryam Q19:36)
“You are old enough to distinguish between what is right and what is not. But you are not a Muslim. That means either you are too small to distinguish truth from delusion, or you are an imbecile. Because only a child or imbecile would believe that it will make him/her happy to be glorified among the same mortals like himself. When he risks being thrown into shame in the eyes of the Creator.
…To be glorious amongst those themselves are inglorious or to be glorious amongst the lucky owners of the Contentment of the Creator ?…”
(Wise words of a 124 Year Old Woman)
And whosoever submits his face (himself) to Allah, while he is a Muhsin (good-doer i.e. performs good deeds totally for Allah’s sake without any show off or to gain praise or fame and does them in accordance with the Sunnah of Allah’s Messenger Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم), then he has grasped the most trustworthy handhold [La ilaha illallah (none has the right to be worshipped but Allah)]. And to Allah return all matters for decision. (Luqman Q31:22)
Every good and believing Muslim need to be aware and make good their intention for every action, be it religious or mundane. Whatever we do in action are only rewarded by Allah(swt) upon the intention for which the actions are performed. How many of us do actions that are seemingly pleasing to the people but […]
A friend of mine sent me a text message which, inspired me to design cards with expression of love that some of us might not find easy to say but a card could tell it for us. She went on and ended it with “I love you”. Ma sha Allah! That is a very deep […]
