ARE YOU THAT PHYSICIAN?

A Hindu physician attached to the court of al-Mansur

once and asked Mowlana Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s)

if he wanted to learn something in this field from him.

The Imam (a.s) said: ‘No. What I have is better than what you have.

‘ Then began a very interesting discourse,

in which the Imam (a.s) asked the physician questions like these:

Why is the head covered with hair?

Why are there lines and wrinkles on the forehead?

Why are the eyes shaped like almonds?

Why has the nose been placed between the eyes?

Why are the hair and the nails without life (sensation)?

These questions moved from the head downwards, till he ended by asking:

Why do the knees fold backwards, and why is the foot hollow on oneside?

To all these questions, the physician had only one reply: ‘I do not know.’

The Imam (a.s) said: ‘But I do know.’ Then he explained all the questions, showing the wisdom and power of the Creator. The hair is created over the head so that oil may reach inside, and heat may go out through it, and so that it may protect the head from heat and cold.

There are lines and wrinkles on the forehead so that sweat from the head does not reach the eyes, giving the person a chance to wipe it away.

The eyes are almond-shaped so as to make it easy to put medicine inside them and remove dirt from them. Had they been square or round, both would have been difficult. The nose is put between the eyes as it helps to divide the light equally towards both eyes.

The hair and nails lack sensation to make it easier to cut and trim them. If there were life in them it would have hurt a person to cut them.

The knees fold backwards because human beings walk forward, and the foot is hollow to make movement easier.’ The physician became a convert to Islam.

Islam and Environment

Hope this post finds you in happy times.You might be aware that climate experts have issued a definitive warning in Paris early this month on the subject of climate change.


Global Warming

The study is the latest of a series of major reports warning of the impact of global warming based on research from 2,500 scientists from more than 130 countries except 2 Americans. (Could have been paid) 

The report stated that 11 out of the past 12 years have ranked amongst some of the warmest on record. It further stated that 80% of the global warmth was absorbed by the oceans, which in turn is causing the polar ice to melt and raise the world’s sea level. The report forecasts that global temperatures will raise 3 to 7 degrees Fahrenheit by 2100 and the oceans sea levels will increase between 7 to 23 inches by the end of the century.

We believe Islam has an answer to the issues facing our planet.

We are responsible for what we do and what is now happening.Also if this continues then the future genration will be in a Big problem & for that ONly we will be responsible. If we want to Help them then we should change ourselves on wasting the bounties of Almighty.

In this background, please find attached a presentation on the solution to climate change.

Be Thankful and Creative

“Be thankful to Almighty what you have. 

Someone else has less than what you have.

Help wherever you can with whatever you have.” 

 See thee Presentation:>> Differnet Way of Approach

Moral of the Story:

1. Be thankful for what you have.

“Has there not been over Man a long period of Time, when he was nothing – (not even) mentioned? Then verily We created Man from a drop of mingled sperm, in order to try him: So We gave him (the gifts), of Hearing and Sight”. (76:1-2)

2. Be creative. Be innovative. Think differently and positively as the Quran admonishes.

“Those who celebrate the praises of Allah, standing, sitting, and lying down on their sides, and contemplate the (wonders of) creation in the heavens and the earth, (With the thought): “Our Lord! You have not created this for naught. Glory be to You! Give us salvation from the penalty of the Fire”. (3:191)

3. Invite the people towards good with wisdom. Quran says:

“Invite (all) to the Way of your Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious: for your Lord knows the best, who have strayed from His Path, and who have received guidance”. (16:125)

Conceit-II

Disadvantages of Conceit

Conceit causes selfishness and vanity, which are the causes of people’s detestation and humiliation. It turns one’s eyes away from noticing his own defects. The conceited forgets his sins and causes himself many damages, since negligence of sins stops against repentance to God and exposes to His wrath.

Treatment of Conceit
Because conceit and arrogance are of the same origin, though they differ in trend, their treatment is the same. It is important for the self-conceited to realize that all virtues that arouse in himself conceit are the graces of God that He grants to whom He wills. Hence, He should be shown gratitude for them.

In the field of avoiding self-conceit, it is related that one of the righteous people, once, left his house after midnight for visiting one of the holy shrines and offering the rites there. In his way, he was controlled by conceit and thought that he was in his way for offering rites of worship in such a cold hour while others were enjoying warmth and sleep in their houses. Meanwhile, he saw one of the hawkers who was selling round rape. He pushed himself towards him and asked how much he would earn from that job. ‘Two or three dirhams,’ said the hawker. The man then thought with himself, ‘Why should I be so conceited? The value of my sleepless and wandering in such an hour is only two or three dirhams.’

CONCEIT-I

Mufaz’zil ibn Amr narrated that Imam sadiq (a.s) was asked: “What is the smallest right of a beleiver over his beleiving brother?” He replied : “That he does not place a higher priority for himself on what his beleiving brother needs more.”
Ref: Mishkatul-Anwar Fi Ghuraril- Akham,Td.1088

CONCEIT

Conceit stands for self-importance for a good trait or a noble quality, such as knowledge, wealth, high rank, or righteous deed. The difference between conceit and arrogance is that the previous is to regard oneself highly important without the feeling of being proud, while arrogance is conceit plus feeling of pride. Conceit, however, is a detestable manner implying self-humbleness, narrow-mindedness, and impudence:

“Do not consider yourselves very great. Allah knows best who is the most righteous person (53:32).”

The Prophet (s) said: “Allah knew that sin is better for the believer than self-conceit; lest, He will never let the believers commit sins.”

Imam al-Baqir (a) said: “Three things are exterminating: to regard the deeds are very much, to neglect the sins, and to be conceited.”

Imam as-Sadiq (a) said: “The conceited shall perish.”

“Eblis the cursed said to his troops, ‘If only I could impose three things upon son of Adam, I would not care for whatever he would do then, because his deeds will not be accepted: to regard his deeds as very much, neglect his sins, and be controlled by conceit.'”

“A knowledgeable man asked the worshipper about his prayers. ‘How can a person like me be asked about his prayers?’ said the worshipper. ‘How about your weeping (out of fear of God)?’ asked the knowledgeable man. ‘I weep so heavily that my tears flow on my cheeks,’ answered the worshipper. The knowledgeable commented, ‘To laugh while you are truly fearful of God is surely better than weeping while you are conceited. No single item of the deeds of the conceited will be raised ( i.e. accepted).'”

One of the Imams (a) narrated that two men; a worshipper and sinful, entered a mosque. When they went out, the sinful was faithful and the worshipper sinful. The worshipper offered the rites of worship while he was conceited; therefore, his mind was engaged in his conceit. The sinful offered the acts of worship because he was regretful for his sins; therefore, he was seeking God’s forgiveness as he remembered his sins.

It is worth mentioning that the discommended conceit is to consider the good deed as very much. To feel pleased for the good deed along with modesty for sake of God—this is not included with the discommended conceit

Rights of Brotherhood between Muslims

Rights of Brotherhood between MuslimsShaykh Muhammad Ridha Al-MuzaffarLast week’s continuation…. When Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s.) had finished, he said:  “If you fulfill these duties you can call yourself his friend, and he will be your friend too. There are many Traditions told from our Imams (a.s.), and most of them are collected in “Kitab al-Wasa’il” in the relevant sections. 

Some people have imagined that the Imams (a.s.) meant brotherhood only among the Shia’s, but if they were to read the Traditions, they would understand that their imagination is deceiving them, although the Imams (a.s.) did strongly repudiate those whose way was against the Shi’a and who didn’t follow their guidance. Here let’s mention the conversation of Imam Sadiq (a.s.) with Muawiyah ibn Wahab. “How should we treat those who don’t follow our ways?” 

“Look to your Imams whom you obey, and obey them and imitate them. They visit them (i.e. those who are not Shi’a) when they are sick, go to their funerals, give evidence for or against them, and repay their trust.”  No, the brotherhood that the Imams envisaged among their followers is higher than ordinary Islamic brotherhood, and it has been mentioned briefly in the introduction. It will suffice to read the following conversation between Imam Sadiq (a.s.) and Aban ibn Taghlab: 

Aban relates: While I was circumambulating the Ka’ba with Imam Sadiq (a.s.), one of our friends signalled to me that I should immediately go with him to help him. The Imam noticed and said to me: 

“O Aban, does he mean you?” I replied: “Yes.”  “Does he believe in what you believe in?” “Yes.” “Then go with him and break your circumambulation.”I asked if it was incumbent on me to do so, and he said that it was. 

Then I went with the man to help him, and after doing so I returned to the Imam and asked him about the rights of the believers.  “Don’t ask me concerning them,” he said. But I insisted.  “Give your brother half of what you own,” he told me, and looked at me. He understood my surprise and said:  

“O Aban! Do you know that Allah admires those believers who prefer others to themselves?”
I replied: “Yes.”  “When you give your brother half of what you own you, don’t prefer him above yourself, but only when you give him the other half do you really prefer him above yourself.” 

If we feel ashamed on reading this, then really we do not deserve to call ourselves believers. We are quite remote from the teachings of the Imams (a.s.).  Everyone who reads this Tradition becomes astonished as did Aban, but then he pays no further attention to it and forgets it, as if he were not the person addressed, and as if he were not responsible. 

Attachment to Parents

فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللٌّهِ )ص): فَقِرَّ مَعَ وَالِدَيْكَ فَوَ الَّذِي نَفْسِي بِيَدِهِ لَأَُنْسُهُمَا بِكَ يَوْماً وَ لَيْلَةً خَيْرٌ مِنْ جِهَادِ سَنَةٍ.

[A person once approached the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him and his family) and said: “I have an old father and mother, who due to their attachment towards me, are not keen for me to go to Jihad.”]

[Hearing this], the Noble Prophet (peace be upon him and his family) said: “(If such is the case then) Stay with your parents for, by the One in whose control lies my soul, their attachment of one day and one night to you is better than one year of Jihad.”

[Biharul Anwar, Volume 74, Page 82]

Essence of Trust

Beautiful Story: 

A little girl and her father were crossing a bridge. The father was kind of scared so he asked his little daughter, “Sweetheart, please hold my hand so that you don’t fall into the river.” The little girl said, “No, Dad. You hold my hand.” “What’s the difference?” Asked the puzzled father…

“There’s a big difference,” replied the little girl. “If I hold your hand and something happens to me, chances are that I may let your hand go. But if you hold my hand, I know for sure that no matter what happens, you will never let my hand go.”

In any relationship, the essence of trust is not in its bind, but in its bond.

So hold the hand of the person whom you love rather than expecting them to hold yours . . . of Trust
