Allah, “An-Nur (the Light)”

He enlightens the hearts of those who have knowledge of Him with Iman and guidance.
Allah, “An-Nur (the Light)”

Every darkness is overcome by the light He gives, which illuminates the heavens and the earth, and He illuminates the path for those who are proceeding towards Him, as well as their hearts.
Allah gives light and His veil is light, if He lifts that veil, the sublimity of His countenance will burn all that His sight reaches.
Allah, An-Nur (the Light)

Allah has not created His slaves to neglect them, and He did not leave them in vain. He, therefore, sent to them messengers to provide knowledge of Him, His Majesty, His perfection and His laws. Almighty Allah sent the best person to mankind. He sent many messengers, such as... Noah, Abraham, Moses and Jesus (peace be upon them) and He sealed the message with the best of messengers, Muhammad (peace be upon him). He gave them all miracles which indicated that they came with the truth. They delivered the trust and conveyed the message, and made Allah known to His slaves as their Lord and Creator. He, therefore, who does not believe in their message and their truthfulness, does not believe in Allah. Almighty Allah says: &"The Messenger has believed in what was revealed to him from his Lord, and (so have) the believers. All of them have believed in Allah and His angels and His books and His messengers&" (Al-Baqarah: 285).
For they are the conveyors of His message to us and have been sent by Him to us, and we believe in them all. Allah says: &" We make no distinction between any of His messengers &" (Al-Baqarah: 285).
Almighty Allah sent scriptures with His messengers to be a guiding light to mankind. He sent Al-Sohof (sheets) with Ibrahim, Al-Zaboor (Psalms) with Dawood, Al-Tawrah (Torah) with Moses, Al-Injeel (Bible) with Jesus, and the Lord&"s miraculous Scripture, Al-Quran Al-Majeed, with Mohammed (peace be upon him). Allah says: &" (This is) a Book whose verses are perfected and then presented in detail from (One who is) Wise and Acquainted&" (Hûd: 1).
Allah (exalted be He) has made it a guide, a light, a blessing and a proof. Allah says: &"And this (Qur&"an) is a Book We have revealed (which is) blessed, so follow it and fear Allah that you may receive mercy&" (Al-An&"âm:155).
He also says: &"O mankind, there has come to you a conclusive proof from your Lord, and We have sent down to you a clear light&" (An-Nisâ&": 174).
Allah has made Iman in the seal of the prophets and messengers and the best of mankind, Muhammad (peace be upon him), and his message a condition for Iman in His Oneness. This we see in the statement of the Shahada (i.e. Ash-hadu alla ilaha illa Allahu wa ana Mohammadan Rasoulollahu. Meaning: &"I bear witness that there is no god but Allah and I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah&"). He was sent by the Almighty as a mercy to the worlds, taking them out of darkness into light (peace be upon him), from ignorance to knowledge and from misguidance to guidance and Iman. He delivered the trust, advised the nation and was concerned about them.
Allah says: &"There has certainly come to you a Messenger from among yourselves. Grievous to him is what you suffer; (he is) concerned over you and to the believers is kind and merciful&" (At-Taubah: 128).
Allah gave His Prophet and Messenger (peace be upon him) the rights that he deserves for he is the best of mankind and he is their master. He (peace be upon him) said : &"I am the leader of the sons of Adam, and I do not boast about it&" (Narrated by Ibn Majah).
From among his rights (peace be upon him) are:
1-Iman in that he is the slave of Allah and His Prophet, and that Allah (exalted be He) had sent him as a mercy to the worlds. He (peace be upon him) delivered the trust and conveyed the message. Allah (exalted be He) says: &"So believe in Allah and His Messenger, and the Qur&"an which We have sent down&" (At-Taghâbun: 8).
And he (peace be upon him) said: &"By Him in Whose hand is the life of Muhammad, he who amongst the community of Jews or Christians who hears about me but does not affirm his belief in that with which I have been sent and dies in this state (of disbelief), he shall be but one of the denizens of Hell-Fire&" (Narrated by Muslim).
2-To believe in and accept all that he (peace be upon him) conveyed from his Lord (exalted be He), and be sure, without a shred of a doubt, that it is the truth that he conveyed from Allah (exalted be He). Allah says: &" The believers are only the ones who have believed in Allah and His Messenger, and then doubt not&" (Al-Hujurât: 15).
Allah says: &"But no, by your Lord, they will not (truly) believe until they make you, (O Muhammad), judge concerning that over which they dispute among themselves and then find within themselves no discomfort from what you have judged, and submit in (full, willing) submission&" (An-Nisâ&": 65).
3-To love him (peace be upon him). Allah (exalted be He) says: &"Say, (O Muhammad): ‘If your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your wives, your relatives, wealth which you have obtained, commerce wherein you fear decline, and dwellings with which you are pleased are more beloved to you than Allah and His Messenger and jihad in His cause, then wait until Allah executes His command. And Allah does not guide the defiantly disobedient people’&" (At-Taubah: 24).
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: &"None of you will have Iman till he loves me more than his father, his children and all mankind&" (Narrated by Al-Bukhari).
4-Respecting him and honouring him (peace be upon him). Allah (exalted be He) says: &"That you (people) may believe in Allah and His Messenger, and honor him and respect the Prophet&" (Al-Fath: 9).
He also says: &"So they who have believed in him, honored him, supported him and followed the light which was sent down with him - it is those who will be the successful&" (Al-A&"râf: 157).
5-To love and respect the members of his house (peace be upon him) who embraced Islam and followed his Sunnah (commands and way of life), and to understand his commandment (peace be upon him): “I remind you (to be kind) to the members of my family. I remind you (to be kind) to the members of my family” (Narrated by Muslim).
The members of his house, such as his wives, his progeny and his relatives to whom it is forbidden to pay any charity, are the most honourable people. It is not permissible to belittle them or to insult them, and it is also not permissible to claim that they are infallible, or to call on them or supplicate to them beside Allah.
6-To love his Sahaba (Companions) (may Allah be pleased with them) who believed and had faith in him, and not harm them in any way for Allah praised them.
7-Not to talk or think badly about the lives of these Sahaba who believed and had faith in him. They are praised by Allah in the Qur&"an. Allah says: &"Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah ; and those with him are forceful against the disbelievers, merciful among themselves. You see them bowing and prostrating (in prayer), seeking bounty from Allah and (His) pleasure. Their mark is on their faces from the trace of prostration&" (Al-Fath: 29).
He (peace be upon him) said about them: “Do not revile my Companions, do not revile my Companions. By Him in Whose Hand is my life, if one amongst you would have spent as much gold as (the size of) Uhud it would not amount to as much as one mudd (small amount) of (the deeds of) one of them, or (even) half of it” (Narrated by Muslim).
The best of the Sahaba are the Kholafa&" Rashedoon (The Rightly-Guided Caliphs): Abu Bakr, then Omar, next Othman and then &"Ali (may Allah be pleased with them). Allah says: &"And the first forerunners (in faith) among the Muhajireen and the Ansar and those who followed them with good conduct - Allah is pleased with them and they are pleased with Him, and He has prepared for them gardens beneath which rivers flow, wherein they will abide forever. That is the great attainment&" (At-Taubah: 100).
All these have conveyed the message from The Prophet (peace be upon him) to us.

The best and most pure of all deeds in the sight of Allah is Iman. Abu Tharr (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that he asked the Prophet (peace be upon him): &"O Messenger of Allah, which deed is the best?&" He replied, &"Having Iman in Allah and fighting in His cause (Jihad)&" (Narrated by Muslim).
Iman is the path that leads to guidance and happiness in this world and the Hereafter. Allah Almighty says: &"So whoever Allah wants to guide - He expands his breast to [contain] Islam&" (Al-An&"âm: 125).
Iman leads the Mu&"min (believer) away from sinning. Allah Almighty says: &"Indeed, those who fear Allah - when an impulse touches them from Satan, they remember [Him] and at once they have insight&" (Al-A&"râf: 201).
Iman is a condition for any deed to be accepted by Allah. Allah says: &"And it was already revealed to you and to those before you that if you should associate [anything] with Allah, your work would surely become worthless and you would surely be among the losers&" (Az-Zumar: 65).
Sincere Iman makes the deed blessed and makes Du&"aa (supplications) be accepted by Allah.

1- It is a means of attaining Allah’s Mercy. Allah Almighty says: “…and My Mercy embraces all things. That (mercy) I shall ordain for those who are the pious, and give Zakah; and those who believe in Our Signs.”(Al-A’raf: 156)

2- It is a condition that entitles those who pay Zakat victory. Allah Almighty says: “…Verily, Allah will help those who help His cause. (They) enjoin Iqamat-as-Salat, pay the Zakah…” (Al-Hajj: 40, 41)

3- It is a means for the expiation of sins. The Prophet ﷺ said, “Sadaqah extinguishes misdeeds as water extinguishes fire.” [ Source: At-Tirmidhi]

Atheism is the denial of the existence of the Creator (mighty and majestic is He), whether this is through a sick pattern of thought and morbid point of view, or just out of aversion, obstinacy and stubbornness. It is a disease that affects the mind, and results in an imbalance of thinking and darkness in the heart that makes an atheist unable to think properly and makes him have a misguided heart. He, therefore, is only able to recognize and see concrete materialism. As a result, he applies the ideas of the materialistic school of thought on humans and their beliefs, which lead to his suffering and going further astray. An atheist believes that Man is a mere piece of material on which materialistic laws is applied.

Having Iman in Allah, Who is the only god who deserves to be worshipped, is the quality which is honoured the most, has the highest status and receives the most reward

Iman ash-Shafa&”i

All that poses a threat in that it reduces the reality of man to sheer materialism and a harsh rationality that is deprived of the pleasures and joys of the soul. An atheist- as long as he does not believe in the existence of Allah- does whatever he wants, whenever he wants, without being scared of any torment and without having any feelings of reverence towards any god. This leads to corruption and the eventual destruction of the human natural disposition, in addition to him being a disbeliever of Allah (mighty and majestic is He)or having a tendency to divert the acts of worship, which should be directed only to Almighty Allah, to others. We, therefore, find that there is an abundance of suicides in the history of atheists, whether they were intellectuals or poets. History is full of such incidents and studies have highlighted this. In a World Health Organisation (WHO) study carried out by two experts, Dr. Jose Manuel and the researcher Alessandra Fleishman, about the relationship between religion and suicide, it was proven that the majority of people who take their lives are atheists. This is illustrated in the following diagram:

1- Nisab of gold is twenty Dinars or 85grams.

A dinar of gold equals four grams and a quarter, the Nisab of gold in grams will then be 4.25 x 20= 85grams of pure gold.

2- The Nisab of silver is two hundred dirham or 595 grams.

A dirham of silver equals 2.975 grams, the Nisab of silver in grams will then be 2.975 x 200 = 595 grams of pure silver.

3- The Nisab of paper currency is calculated on the basis of the Nisab of gold or silver when the collection of Zakah is due. When the money has reached the Nisab of either gold or silver, Zakat then becomes obligatory.
For example, if a gram of gold equals $30, Zakah becomes obligatory if one has 30 x 85 = 2 550.

The Concept of having hope in Allah:
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: &"Facilitate things for the people (concerning religious matters) and do not make it hard for them, and give them good tidings and do not make them run away (from Islam)” (Narrated by al-Bukhari).
Having hope in Allah : To feel the presence of Allah and His Beneficence and Mercy, as well as taking comfort in contemplating over His blessings and what He has granted us, and being sure that all of this is from Allah. Hope is a guiding light that takes hearts to Allah and to Jannah. Allah the Exalted says: &"And whoever does wrong or wrongs himself, but then seeks forgiveness of Allah, he will find Allah Forgiving and Merciful&" (An-Nisâ&": 110).

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: &"Islam is built on five (pillars): The testimony that there is none worthy of worship but Allah, establishing Salah, giving Zakah, Hajj, and fasting Ramadan&" (Narrated by Al-Bukhari)
&"La ilaha illallah&" for its sake Allah beautified Jannah and He created Jahanem, and for its sake the scale of good and evil deeds will be set up.
Furthermore he (peace be upon him) said: &"The best of what I and the Prophet before me have said is: &"None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, Alone. He has no partner, to Him belongs all that exists, and to Him belongs the Praise, and He is over all things (in His power).&" (La ilaha illallah, wahdahu la sharika Lahu, Lahul-Mulku wa Lahul-Hamdu, wa Huwa ala kulli shai’in qadir)’” (Narrated by At-Tirmidthi)
He (peace be upon him) also said: “When prophet Nuh was dying, he told his son: ‘I will give you some instructions. I will command you to do two things and I will forbid you from doing two things. I command you to say: “There is no god but Allah.” If the seven heavens and the seven earths were a dark ring, they would be broken to pieces by this phrase: &"There is no god but Allah&"&"(Narrated by Al-Bukhari in “Al-Adab Al-Mufrad”)

1- For Eating and Drinking
Their usage is forbidden, as stated by the Prophet ﷺ: “Do not drink from gold and silver containers and do not eat from plates made from them. Verily they are for them (the unbelievers) on earth and for you (the believers) in the hereafter.” [ agreed upon]
And he ﷺ said: “He who drinks from a silver container, indeed (he) causes hell-fire to boil in his belly.” [ agreed upon]
2- For Other than Eating and Drinking
It is permissible to use gold and silver for things other than eating and drinking, for example to perform ablution. This is based on the specificity of the previously mentioned hadeeth to eating and drinking. Also we see evidence for this from the hadeeth of Ummu Salamah (may Allah be pleased with her). She possessed a small container resembling a bell made from silver that contained grains of hair belonging to the Prophet ﷺ.[ narrated by At-Tirmidhi.]
Usage of Containers Patched with Silver
It is permissible to use containers patched with a small amount of silver. The patching must be for the purpose of repair only and not beautification, as is shown in the hadith in which the Prophetﷺ mended the cracked portion of a pitcher with a chain made of silver.[ narrated by At-Tirmidhi.]

Conditions Necessitating Zakah on Grains and Fruits
1- It should be stored goods
If it is not something which is stored, but used for daily consumption, no Zakah is payable on such. This is because the money value of unstored produce cannot be realized due to the inability of benefitting from such financially.

2- It should be measurable in Wasqs

It should be among the products that are usually weighed in Wasqs. Wasqs are units of measure. This is drawn from the Prophet’s statement ﷺ: “There is no Zakah on grains or dates until such items weigh five Wasqs[ One Wasq: Sixty Sa’].” [ Source: Muslim]

If it is not part of that which is usually weighed (in Wasqs) e.g. vegetables and herbs, then Zakah is not due on it.

3- It should be grown for the purpose of cultivation and production on agriculture farms:

However, Zakat is not due on subsistence farms.

4- It should reach the amount of the Nisab,

which is five Wasqs, as evidenced from the Prophet’s statement ﷺ: “There is no Zakah on grains or dates until such items weigh five Wasqs.” [ Source: Muslim] The Nisab in this case is three hundred Prophetic Sa’, which is equivalent to 612kg of good quality wheat. One has to mix variants of the same fruit for the same year in order to see if they add up to the Nisab. For example, sugary dates are mixed with barhi types because they are variants of the same fruit. A different grain/fruit, however, is not mixed with another when calculating the Nisab. Wheat, for instance, is not mixed with barley, nor is barley with dates (and so on).
