Why Muslims are underscanner ? Is being moderate a Sin ?

March 9, 2010 5 comments

The Question is why only a Muslim, has to prove time and again that he is a Muslim, and what type of Muslim, whether a Moderate Muslim, or a Staunch Muslim.

In Sept 2009. Muslims Gather on Capitol Hill for Prayer Nearly 3,000 people gathered Friday on the lawn of the Capitol for a day of Muslim unity that organizers said was about prayer, not protest. (Anna Uhls/The Washington Post) http://www.washingtonpost.com PLEASE SEE THE VIDEO link on search for capital hills Muslims gathering. or Double click on the Picture above. A MUST.

There is nothing like moderate, liberal or a staunch Muslim. A Musim is a Muslim. Just a Muslim. Then, Who is a Muslim ?   Just a Muslim. ?

We have debates in TV channels which try to pose these questions to  few among us. There are some who call themselves liberal or lighter Muslims,  some in them are  brave enough to accept that a Muslim has to pray five times Namaz, and   praying Namaz  is very important.  They also regrets that they are not able to pray for five times.  But this liberals are  proud to be a Muslim, and says they remember Allah eve ry minute of  their life.

All this is fine.  We know  there are, Muslims who do not pray five times Namaz. And we also known Namaz is a very important Pillar of Islam, an act which is one of the five pillars of Islam.

But  there is  greater commitment a Muslim makes when he calls himself a Muslim.  Than Just saying five times prayer.

To understand it better let us  try to know about the five pillars of Islam. And discuss.

US President Barack Obama will give his $US1.42 million ($A1.57 million) reward for winning the Nobel Peace Prize to charity, a US official says.

No decision has yet been taken on exactly which organizations will benefit, the official said on Friday.

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said earlier on Friday that Obama will accept the Nobel Prize in person.

The gold medal, diploma and a cherub for 10 million Swedish kronor ($A1.57 million) are due to be presented in Oslo on December 10 on the anniversary of the death in 1896 of the Nobel Prize creator, Swedish industrialist Alfred Nobel.

It will be very interesting to see how Mr. Obama will distribute this money, and to whom.  

His giving of Charity to educate many the value of sharing as a human being.

 All that comes our way is with a tag of sharing partners to it.  Many tend to ignore the tag attached, and consider it is there earning and none has a share in it.

 The truth is ever reward and every material gain we are blessed is with us for us to understand that we are just a medium to receive and transfer to the real share holders and the people less blessed.

We have in it for us too, the discretion is ours to hold some or give all.

 The example Obama is setting is he likes to share all his prize money, as he is blessed, and does not need to advance his comfort all this surely is surplus.

A great way and a great thought and lesson for the people of the world.

A verse of Quranic Revelation on chairty and how  God tests  Righteousness.

[2:177]  Righteousness is not turning your faces towards the east or the west. Righteous are those who believe in GOD, the Last Day, the angels, the scripture, and the prophets; and they give the money, cheerfully, to the relatives, the orphans, the needy, the traveling alien, the beggars, and to free the slaves; and they observe the Contact Prayers  and give the obligatory charity ; and they keep their word whenever they make a promise; and they steadfastly persevere in the face of persecution, hardship, and war. These are the truthful; these are the righteous

let us be guided rightly  and remain caring towards the sould who need our support. amin.

Quran Al Hakeem  Selecte Verses

[2:263] Kind words and compassion are better than a charity that is followed by insult. GOD is Rich, Clement.

[2:267] O you who believe, you shall give to charity from the good things you earn, and from what we have produced for you from the earth. Do not pick out the bad therein to give away, when you yourselves do not accept it unless your eyes are closed. You should know that Allah is Rich, Praiseworthy.

3:134] who give to charity during the good times, as well as the bad times. They are suppressors of anger, and pardoners of the people. GOD loves the charitable.

[4:38] They give money to charity only to show off, while disbelieving in GOD and the Last Day. If one’s companion is the devil, that is the worst companion.

[9:54] What prevented the acceptance of their spending is that they disbelieved in GOD and His messenger, and when they observed the Contact Prayers (Salat), they observed them lazily, and when they gave to charity, they did so grudgingly.

 Hadith of Prophet Mohammed sas select Hadiths.

Volume 2, Book 24, Number 497:
Whenever Allah’s Apostle (p.b.u.h) ordered us to give in charity, we used to go to the market and work as porters and get a Mudd (a special measure of grain) and then give it in charity. (Those were the days of poverty) and to-day some of us have one hundred thousand.
 Narrated Abu Masud Al-Ansar:
 
Volume 2, Book 24, Number 500:
A man came to the Prophet and asked, “O Allah’s Apostle! Which charity is the most superior in reward?” He replied, “The charity which you practice while you are healthy, niggardly and afraid of poverty and wish to become wealthy. Do not delay it to the time of approaching death and then say, ‘Give so much to such and such, and so much to such and such.’ And it has already belonged to such and such (as it is too late).”
  Narrated Abu Huraira:
 
Volume 2, Book 24, Number 509:
 Narrated Ibn ‘Umar:
I heard Allah’s Apostle (p.b.u.h) while he was on the pulpit speaking about charity, to abstain from asking others for some financial help and about begging others, saying, “The upper hand is better than the lower hand. The upper hand is that of the giver and the lower (hand) is that of the beggar.”
 
 Volume 2, Book 24, Number 514:
 Narrated ‘Abda:
The Prophet said, “Do not with-hold your money by counting it (i.e. hoarding it), (for if you did so), Allah would also with-hold His blessings from you.”

 

 Volume 2, Book 24, Number 554:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet said, “The poor person is not the one who asks a morsel or two (of meals) from the others, but the poor is the one who has nothing and is ashamed to beg from others.”
