The Sa` used by the Messenger

Question :What was the amount of a Sa` in handfuls as was used by the Messenger (peace be upon him)?

Answer : What has been verified for us regarding the Prophetic Sa` is that it is four handfuls of a moderate-sized man. This is what was mentioned by some Muslim scholars such as Ibn Al-Athir in his book Al-Nihayah and Al-Fayruzabady in his book Al-Qamus. As for the Sa`s which we find in markets or Masjids (mosques), as mentioned by the questioner, they differ regarding their quantity. Thus, the estimation of a Sa` should rely on what was mentioned by scholars as explained earlier and Allah knows best.

May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.

The Ruling Concerning Celebrating Birthdays.


What is the ruling concerning celebrating birthdays?


Celebrating birthdays has no source whatsoever in the pure shariah. In fact, it is an innovation, since the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ‘alaihi-wasallam) said,“Whoever introduces anything into this matter of ours that does not belong to it shall have it rejected.”

This was recorded by al-Bukhari and Muslim. In a version recorded by Muslim and by al-Bukhari in definitive muallaq form.

“Whoever performs a deed which is not in accord with our affairs, that deed is rejected.”

It is well-known that the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alaihi-wasallam) did not celebrate his birthday at all during his lifetime nor did he ever order it to be celebrated. Nor did he teach such to his Companions. Therefore, the rightly-guided caliphs and all of his Companions did not celebrate it. They are the most knowledgeable of the people concerning his sunnah and they are the most beloved to the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alaihi-wasallam). They were also the most keen upon following whatever the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alaihi-wasallam) brought. Therefore, if one is supposed to celebrate the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alaihi-wasallam) birthday, this would have been made evident at their time. Similarly, not one of the scholars of the best of generations celebrated his birthday nor did they order it to be done.

Therefore, it is known from the above that such a celebration is not from the Law that Allah sent Muhammed (sallallaahu ‘alaihi-wasallam) with. We ask Allah and all Muslims to witness that if the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alaihi-wasallam) had done so or ordered such to be done, or even if the Companions had done so, we would rush to do it and call others to do it. This is because, and all praises are due to Allah, we are the most keen in following his sunnah and respecting his commands and prohibitions. We ask Allah, for ourselves and for all our brethren Muslims, steadfastness upon the truth, avoiding everything that differs from Allah’s pure shariah. Verily, He is Generous and Noble.

Do You Really Want Paradise?

Targheeb and Tarheeb
Do You Really Want Paradise?
Author: Jawad Ahmed
Article ID : TZK050001

This should be our goal in life, “I want to go to Jannah (Paradise).” It should be written in bold letters on our foreheads so that it serves a constant reminder for us. The Prophet has left with us a very small key to Jannah, which we muslims today have become oblivious of. Just like you need a key to open your car’s door, or hous door, or office door; similarly you need a key to open Jannah to you. What is this key?

Prophet said,”Whoever goes down a path/road searching for knowledge, Allah will make it easy for him the road to Paradise.” [Saheeh Muslim, Vol.3 Hadith No. 99]

Travelling on the path to knowledge refers both to walking or driving along an actual road/pathway, such as going to Conferences, etc..or going to your local Masajids whenever there is either an international scholar/speaker or a local scholar/speaker speaking. Searching also entails, a metaphysical road, such as stydying and memorising Quran and Hadeeth. Not merely memorising like a parrot, but understanding it first and then memorising it.

Covering in front of in-laws


Is it obligatory for the woman who lives in her husbands’ house along with the brothers of her husband and his father to remain covered in hijaab during the course of her work in the home due to the presence of the brothers of her husband?


If they are present with her then so, otherwise if she is in a room by herself then no, and nor is it permissible for her to be alone with any one of the brothers of her husband, and likewise it is obligatory for her to cover her face and her hands if she is present amongst them and there are others present or if there is no seclusion. Since there is no man left alone with another woman except that the Shaitaan is the third of them, and what is authentic from the statements of the people of knowledge is that it is obligatory for her to cover her face and hands infront of strangers.

Some Narrations from the Salaf about Gratitude (Shukr)

Some Narrations from the Salaf about Gratitude (Shukr)

Translated by Umm Yahya

a) Abu Huraira -Radi Allaahu anhu- said: ‘Whoever sees someone being trialed and says: ‘All Praise to Allah who has pardoned me from that which you have been afflicted with and favored me above you, and above all of His creation’, then he has indeed given sufficient gratitude (Shukr) for that blessing.’ [Taken from ‘Udat-us-Sabireen’ by Ibn al-Qayyim p.280]

b) ‘Aeysha -Radi Allaahu anha – said: ‘There is no one from the slaves of Allah who drinks pure clean water and it enters your body without harm and leaves your body without harm, except it becomes obligatory upon them to give thanks/gratitude.’ [Taken from ‘Udat-us-Sabireen’ by Ibn al-Qayyim p.281]

A Description of the One Who Abandoned Knowledge of the Book and Preferred the Dunya over the Aakhirah [Summarized Benefits from Imaam Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaah)]

Allaah (The Most High) said:

وَٱتۡلُ عَلَيۡهِمۡ نَبَأَ ٱلَّذِىٓ ءَاتَيۡنَـٰهُ ءَايَـٰتِنَا فَٱنسَلَخَ مِنۡهَا فَأَتۡبَعَهُ ٱلشَّيۡطَـٰنُ فَكَانَ مِنَ ٱلۡغَاوِينَ

”And recite (O Muhammad) to them the story of him to whom We gave Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.), but he threw them away, so Shaitan (Satan) followed him up, and he became of those who went astray.” [7:175]

وَلَوۡ شِئۡنَا لَرَفَعۡنَـٰهُ بِہَا وَلَـٰكِنَّهُ ۥۤ أَخۡلَدَ إِلَى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ وَٱتَّبَعَ هَوَٮٰهُ‌ۚ فَمَثَلُهُ ۥ كَمَثَلِ ٱلۡڪَلۡبِ إِن تَحۡمِلۡ عَلَيۡهِ يَلۡهَثۡ أَوۡ تَتۡرُڪۡهُ يَلۡهَث‌ۚ ذَّٲلِكَ مَثَلُ ٱلۡقَوۡمِ ٱلَّذِينَ كَذَّبُواْ بِـَٔايَـٰتِنَا‌ۚ فَٱقۡصُصِ ٱلۡقَصَصَ لَعَلَّهُمۡ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ

”And had We willed, We would surely have elevated him therewith but he clung to the earth and followed his own vain desire. So his description is the description of a dog: if you drive him away, he lolls his tongue out, or if you leave him alone, he (still) lolls his tongue out. Such is the description of the people who reject Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.). So relate the stories, perhaps they may reflect.’’ [7:176]

Allaah likens him—[the one whom He gave knowledge of the Book and taught him what was not given to others, but he abandoned it; followed his desires and preferred the Anger of Allaah over the Pleasure of Allaah; preferred the worldly life over the afterlife and preferred the created beings over the Creator]—to a dog, which is considered to be from the meanest of animals; among the lowest in status and the meanest in inclination.

Its desire does not exceed beyond its stomach (i.e. its desire for food). It is considered to be from the greediest (of animals) and most eager (for food). And due to its eagerness (for food), it does not go about except that it places its nose on the ground, whilst sniffing and roaming about greedily and eagerly. It does not cease smelling its anus besides all its other body parts. If a stone is thrown at it, it returns to bite it due to extreme greed. When it takes possession of a dead animal enough for a hundred dogs, it would not allow another dog to eat anything from it, except whilst growling and seeking to gain the upper hand due to eagerness, greed and covetousness.
