What is Quran?

Al-Baqara
(2:1) Alif, Lam, Meem.
(2:2) This is the Book about which there is no doubt, a guidance for those conscious of Allah –
(2:3) Who believe in the unseen, establish prayer, and spend out of what We have provided for them,
(2:4) And who believe in what has been revealed to you, and what was revealed before you, and of the Hereafter they are certain [in faith].
(2:5) Those are upon [right] guidance from their Lord, and it is those who are the successful.


Alay Imran
(3:2) Allah – there is no deity except Him, the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of existence.
(3:3) He has sent down upon you the Book in truth, confirming what was before it. And He revealed the Torah and the Gospel.
(3:4) Before as a guidance for mankind and also revealed this Al-Furqan [criterion for judgment between right and wrong]. Surely those who reject Allah’s revelations will be sternly punished; Allah is Mighty, capable of retribution.

(3:7) It is He who has sent down to you the Book; in it are verses [that are] precise – they are the foundation of the Book – and others unspecific. As for those in whose hearts is deviation [from truth], they will follow that of it which is unspecific, seeking discord and seeking an interpretation [suitable to them]. And no one knows its [true] interpretation except Allah. But those firm in knowledge say, “We believe in it. All [of it] is from our Lord.” And no one will be reminded except those of understanding.

(3:138) This [the Quran] is a clear declaration to mankind, a guidance and an admonition to those who fear Allah!


An-Nisa
(4:82) Then do they not reflect upon the Qur’an? If it had been from [any] other than Allah, they would have found within it much contradiction.

(4:105) Indeed, We have revealed to you, the Book in truth so you may judge between the people by that which Allah has shown you. So be not an advocate for those who betray trust.
(4:106) And seek forgiveness of Allah. Indeed, Allah is ever Forgiving and Merciful.


Al-A’raf
(7:2) [This is] a Book revealed to you – so let there not be in your breast distress therefrom – that you may warn thereby and as a reminder to the believers.


Hud
(11:1) [This is] a Book whose verses are perfected and then presented in detail from [one who is] Wise and Acquainted.
(11:2) “Do not worship except Allah. Indeed, I am to you from Him a warner and a bringer of good tidings,”
(11:3) And [saying], “Seek forgiveness of your Lord and repent to Him, [and] He will let you enjoy a good provision for a specified term and give every doer of favor his favor. But if you turn away, then indeed, I fear for you the punishment of a great Day.
(11:4) To Allah is your return, and He is over all things competent.”


Yusuf
(12:1) Alif L’am Ra. These are the verses of the Book that make things clear.
(12:2) We have revealed this Quran in the Arabic language so that you may
understand.
(12:3) We relate to you the best of stories through this Quran by Our
revelation to you, though before this you were one of those who did not know.


Al-Hijr
(15:87) And We have certainly given you, seven of the often repeated [verses] and the great Qur’an.
(15:88) Do not extend your eyes toward that by which We have given enjoyment to [certain] categories of the disbelievers, and do not
grieve over them. And lower your wing to the believers
(15:89) And say, “Indeed, I am the clear warner”


An-Nahl
(16:64) And We have not revealed to you the Book except for you to make clear to them that wherein they have differed and as guidance and mercy for a people who believe.

(16:89) And [mention] the Day when We will resurrect among every nation a witness over them from themselves. And We will bring you as a witness over your nation. And We have sent down to you the Book as clarification for all things and as guidance and mercy and good tidings for the Muslims.

(16:97) Whoever does righteousness, whether male or female, while he is a believer – We will surely cause him to live a good life, and We will surely give them their reward [in the Hereafter] according to the best of what they used to do.
(16:98) So when you recite the Qur’an, [first] seek refuge in Allah from Satan, the expelled [from His mercy].
(16:99)Indeed, there is for him no authority over those who have believed and rely upon their Lord.
(16:100) His authority is only over those who take him as an ally and those who through him associate others with Allah.


Al-Isra
(17:78) Establish prayer at the decline of the
sun [from its meridian] until the darkness of the night and [also] the Qur’an
of dawn. Indeed, the recitation of dawn is ever witnessed.
(17:79) And from [part of] the night, pray with it as additional [worship] for you; it is expected that your Lord will resurrect you to a praised station.
(17:80) And say, “My Lord, cause me to enter a sound entrance and to exit a sound exit and grant me from Yourself a supporting authority.”
(17:81) And say, “Truth has come, and falsehood has departed. Indeed is falsehood, [by nature], ever bound to depart.”
(17:82) And We send down of the Qur’an that which is healing and mercy for the believers, but it does not increase the wrongdoers except in loss.


Luqman
(31:2) These are verses of the wise Book,
(31:3) As guidance and mercy for the doers of good
(31:4) Who establish prayer and give zakah, and they, of the Hereafter, are certain [in faith].


Az-Zumar
(39:2) Indeed, We have sent down to you the Book in truth. So worship Allah, [being] sincere to Him in religion.
(39:3) Unquestionably, for Allah is the pure religion. And those who take protectors besides Him [say], “We only worship them that they may bring us nearer to Allah in position.” Indeed, Allah will judge between them concerning that over which they differ. Indeed, Allah does not guide he who is a liar and [confirmed] disbeliever.

(39:41) Indeed, We sent down to you the Book for the people in truth. So whoever is guided – it is for [the benefit of] his soul; and whoever goes astray only goes astray to its detriment. And you are not a manager over them.


Ash-Shura
(42:52) And thus We have revealed to you an inspiration of Our command. You did not know what is the Book or [what is] faith, but We have made it a light by which We guide whom We will of Our servants. And indeed you
guide to a straight path –
(42:53) The path of Allah, to whom belongs whatever is in the heavens and
whatever is on the earth. Unquestionably, to Allah do [all] matters evolve.


Al-Muzzammil
(73:20) Indeed, your Lord knows, that you stand [in prayer] almost two thirds of the night or half of it or a third of it, and [so do] a group of those with you. And Allah determines [the extent of] the night and the day. He has known that you [Muslims] will not be able to do it and has turned to you in forgiveness, so recite what is easy [for you] of the Qur’an. He has known that there will be among you those who are ill and others traveling throughout the land seeking [something] of the bounty of Allah and others fighting for the cause of Allah. So recite what is easy from it and establish prayer and give zakah and loan Allah a goodly loan. And whatever good you put forward for yourselves – you will find it with Allah. It is better and greater in reward. And seek forgiveness of Allah. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.

Isra & Miraj

Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume-6, Book 65, P.186

(4709) Narrated Abu Hurairah: Allah’s Messenger, pbuh, was presented with two cups, one containing wine and the other containing milk on the night of his Journey by Night at Jerusalem.  He looked at both and took the milk.  Jibril (Gabriel) said, “Thanks to Allah Who guided you to the Fitrah (i.e. Islam); if you had taken the wine, your followers would have gone astray.”

(4710) Narrated Jabir bin Abdullah: the Prophet, pbuh, said, “When the people of Quraish disbelieved me [concerning my Al-Isra] I stood up in Al-Hijr (the unroofed portion of the Kabah) and Allah displayed Bait-ul-Maqdis in front of me, and I started describing it to them (Quraish) while looking at it.”


Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume-4, Book 59, P.272-275

(3207) Narrated Malik bin Sa’sa’a:  The Prophet, pbuh, said, “While I was beside the House (Kabah) in a state midway between sleep and wakefulness, (an angel recognized me) as the man lying between two men.  A golden tray full of wisdom and belief was brought to me and my body was cut open from the throat to the lower part of the abdomen and then my abdomen was washed with Zamzam water and (my heart was) filled with wisdom and belief. Al-Buraq, a white animal, smaller than a mule and bigger than a donkey was brought to me and I set out with Jibril (Gabriel).  When I reached the nearest heaven, Jibril said to the gatekeeper of the heaven, “Open the gate.”  The gatekeeper said, “Has he been called?” Jibril said, “Yes”.  Then it was said, “He is welcome.  What a wonderful visit his is!”  Then I met Adam and greeted him and he said, “You are welcome, O son and a Prophet.”  Then we ascended to the second heaven.  It was asked, “Who is it?” Jibril said, “Jibril”  It was said, “Who is with you?”  He said, “Muhammad (pbuh)”.  It was asked, “Has he been sent for?”  He said, “Yes”.  It was said, “He is welcome.  What a wonderful visit his is!”  Then I met Isa (Jesus) and Yahya (John) who said, “You are welcome O brother and a Prophet.”  Then we ascended to the third heaven.  It was asked, “Who is it?” Jibril said, “Jibril”  It was said, “Who is with you?”  He said, “Muhammad.”  It was asked, “Has he been sent for?”  He said, “Yes”.  It was said, “He is welcome.  What a wonderful visit his is!” (The Prophet, pbuh, added) “There I met Yusuf (Joseph) and greeted him, and he replied, “You are welcome, O brother and a Prophet!”  Then we ascended to the fourth heaven and again the same questions and answers were exchanged as in the previous heavens.  There I met Idris and greeted him.  He said, “You are welcome, O brother and a Prophet.”  Then we ascended to the fifth heaven and again the same questions and answers were exchanged as in previous heavens.  There I met and greeted Harun (Aaron) who said, “You are welcome, O brother and a Prophet.”  Then we ascended to the sixth heaven and again the same questions and answers were exchanged as in previous heavens.  There I met and greeted Musa (Moses) who said, “You are welcome, O brother and a Prophet.”  When I proceeded on, he started weeping and on being asked why he was weeping, he said, “O Lord! Followers of this youth who was sent after me will enter Paradise in greater number than my followers.”  Then we ascended to the seventh heaven and again the same questions and answers were exchanged as in the previous heavens.  There I met and greeted Ibrahim (Abraham) who said, “You are welcome, O son and a Prophet.”  Then I was shown Al-Bait-ul-Ma’mur (i.e. Allah’s House).  I asked Jibril about it and he said, “This is Al-Bait-ul-Ma’mur where seventy thousand angels perform Salat (prayer) daily, and when they leave they never return to it (but always fresh batch comes into it daily).”  Then I was shown Sidrat-ul-Muntaha (i.e. the lote-tree of the utmost boundary) and I saw its Nabiq fruits which resembled the clay jugs of Hajar (i.e. a town in Arabia), and its leaves were like the ears of elephants, and four rivers originated at its root, two of them were apparent and two were hidden. I asked Jibril about those rivers and he said, “The two hidden rivers are in Paradise, and the apparent ones are the Nile and the Euphrates.”  Then fifty Salat (prayer) were enjoined on me.  I descended till I met Musa who asked me, “What have you done?”  I said, “Fifty salat have been enjoined on me.”  He said, “I know the people better than you because I had the hardest experience to bring Bani Israel to obedience.  Your followers cannot put up with such obligations.  So, go back to your Lord and request Him (to reduce the number of Salat).”  I returned and requested Allah (for reduction) and He made it forty.  I returned and (met Musa) and had a similar discussion, and then returned again to Allah for reduction, and He made it thirty, then twenty, then ten, and then I came to Musa who repeated the same advice.  Ultimately Allah reduced it to five.  When I came to Musa again, he said, “What have you done?”  I said, “Allah has made it five only.”  He repeated the same advice but I said that I surrendered (to Allah’s Final Order)”  Allah’s Messenger, pbuh, was addressed by Allah, “I have decreed My Obligation and have reduced the burden on My slaves, and I shall reward a single good deed as if it were ten good deeds.”


Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume-4, Book 59, P.276

(3209) Narrated Abu Hurairah: The Prophet, pbuh, said, “If Allah loves a person, He calls Jibril (Gabriel) saying, ‘Allah loves so-and-so; O Jibril, love him.’  Jibril would love him and make an announcement amongst the inhabitants of the heaven: “Allah loves-so-and-so, therefore you should love him also.”  And so all the inhabitants of the heaven would love him, and then he is granted the pleasures of the people on the earth. [see also vol-9, Hadith no. 7485]


Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume-4, Book 59, P.281

(3221) Narrated Ibn Shihab:  Once Umar bin Abdul Aziz delayed the Asr payer a little.  Urwa said to him, “Jibril descended and led the Salat in front of the Prophet, pbuh.”  On that Umar said, “O Urwa! Be sure of what you say.”  Urwa said, “I heard Bashir bin Abi Mas’ud narrating from Ibn Mas’ud who heard Allah’s Messenger, pbuh, saying, “Jibril descended and led me in Salat; and I offered Salat with him, then again I offered Salat with him, and then offered Salat with him again, and then offered Salat with him again, and then offered Salat with him again, counting with his fingers five Salat.”


Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume-4, Book 59, P.286

(3234) Narrated Aishah:  Whoever claimed that (the Prophet) Muhammad, pbuh, saw his Lord, is committing a great fault, for he only saw Jibril (Gabriel) in his genuine shape in which he was created covering the whole horizon.


Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume-4, Book 60, P.336

(3342) Narrated Anas: Abu Dhar used to say that Allah’s Messenger, pbuh, said, “While I was at Makkah, the roof of my house was opened and Jibril (Gabriel) descended, opened my chest, and washed it with Zamzam water.  Then he brought a golden tray full of wisdom and faith, and having poured its contents into my chest, he closed it.  Then he took my hand and ascended with me to the heaven.  When Jibril reached the nearest heaven, he said to the gatekeeper of the heaven, “Open (the gate).”  The gatekeeper asked, “Who is it?”  Jibril ansered, “Jibril.”  He asked, “Is there anyone with you?”  Jibril replied, ‘Muhammad (PBUH) is with me.”  He asked, “Has he been called?” Jibril said, “Yes.”  So, the gate was opened and we went over the nearest heaven, and there we saw a man sitting with Aswida (a large number of people) on his right and Aswida on his left.  When he looked towards his right, he laughed and when he looked towards his left he wept.  He said (to me), “Welcome, O pious Prophet and pious son.”  I said, “Who is this man O Jibril?”  Jibril replied, “He is Adam, and the people on his right and left are the souls of his offspring.  Those on the right are the people of Paradise, and those on the left are the people of the (Hell) Fire.  So, when he looks to the right, he laughs, and when he looks to the left he weeps.”  Then Jibril ascended with me till he reached the second heaven and said to its gatekeeper.  “Open (the gate).”  The gatekeeper said to him the same as the gatekeeper of the first heaven had said, and he opened the gate.”

Anas added:  Abu Dhar mentioned that the Prophet, pbuh, met Idris, Musa (Moses), Isa (Jesus) and Ibrahim (Abraham) over the heavens, but he did not specify their places (i.e. on which heaven each of them was) but he mentioned that he (the Prophet, pbuh) had met Adam on the nearest heaven, and Ibrahim on the sixth.  Anas said, “When Jibril and the Prophet, pbuh, passed by Idris, the latter said, “Welcome, O pious Prophet and pious brother!” the Prophet, pbuh, asked, “Who is he?”  Jibril said, “He is Idris.”  The Prophet, pbuh, added, “Then I passed by Musa who said, ‘Welcome, O pious Prophet and pious brother!’  I said, “Who is he?”  Jibril said, “He is Musa.”  Then I passed by Isa who said, “Welcome, O pious Prophet and pious brother!”  I said, “Who is he?”  He replied, “He is Isa.”  Then I passed by the Prophet Ibrahim who said, “Welcome, O pious Prophet and pious son!” I said, “Who is he?” Jibril replied, “He is Ibrahim.”

Narrated Ibn Abbas and Abu Haiyya Al-Ansari:  The Prophet, pbuh, said, “Then Jibril ascended with me to a place where I heard the creaking of the pens.”  Ibn Hazm and Anas bin Malik state that the Prophet, pbuh, said, “Allah enjoined fifty Salat (Prayer) on me.  When I returned with this order of Allah, I passed by Musa who asked me, ‘what has Allah enjoined on your followers?’ I replied, ‘He has enjoined fifty Salat on them.’  On that Musa said to me, ‘Go back to your Lord (and appeal for reduction), for your followers will not be able to bear it.’  So I returned to my Lord and asked for some reduction, and He reduced it to half.  When I passed by Musa again and informed him about it, he once more said to me, ‘ Go back to your Lord, for your followers will not be able to bear it.’  So, I returned to my Lord similarly as before, and half of it was reduced.  I again passed by Musa and said to me, ‘Go back to your Lord, for your followers will not be able to bear it.’  I again returned to my Lord and He said, “these are five (salat) and they are all (equal to) fifty (in reward), for My Word does not change.”  I returned to Musa, he again told me to return to my Lord (for further reduction) but I said to him, ‘I feel shy of asking my Lord now.’  Then Jibril took me till we reached Sidrat-ul-Muntaha (i.e. lote tree of utmost boundry) which was shrouded in colours indescribable.  Then I was admitted into Paradise where I found small tents (made) of pearls and its earth was musk (a kind of perfume).


Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume-4, Book 60, P.343

(3349) Narrated Ibn Abbas: The Prophet, pbuh, said, “You will be gathered (on the Day of Judgement), bare-footed, naked and not circumcised.”  He then recited:

“As We began the first creation, We shall repeat it: (It is) a promise binding upon US.  Truly we shall do it.” (Quran 21:104)

He added, “The first to be dressed on the Day of Resurrection will be Ibrahim (Abraham), and some of my companions will be taken towards the left side [i.e. to the (Hell) Fire, and I will say: ‘My companions!  My companions!’  It will be said, “They had been renegades (deserted Islam) after you left them.”  Then I will say as the pious slave of Allah [i.e. Isa (Jesus) (pbuh) said: “And I was a witness over them while I dwelt amongst them…(up to)…the All-Wise.” (Quran 5:117, 118)


Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume-4, Book 60, P.345

Narrated Abu Hurairah: The people said, “O Allah’s Messenger!  Who is the most honorable amongst the people (with Allah)?”  He said, “Al-Muttaqun (the most pious and righteous) amongst them.”  They said, “We do not ask you about this.”  He said, “Then Yusuf (Joseph), Allah’s Prophet, the son of Allah’s Prophet, the son of Allah’s Prophet, the son of Allah’s Khalil (the one whose love is mixed with one’s heart and it is superior to a friend or beloved.) [i.e. Ibrahim (Abraham)].”  They said, “We do not want to ask about this.”  He said, “Then you want to ask about the descent of the Arabs.  Those who were the best in the Pre-Islamic Period of Ignorance will be the best in Islam provided they comprehend the religious knowledge.”


Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume-4, Book 60, P.360

(3369) Narrated Abu Humaid As-Sa’idi:  The people asked, “O Allah’s Messenger!  How shall we (ask Allah to) send As-Salat on you?”  Allah’s Messenger replied, “Say: Allahumma salli ala Muhammadin wa azwajihi wa dhurriyatihi kama sallaita ala Ali-Ibrahima wa barik ala Muhammadin wa azwajihi wa dhurriyatihi kama barakta ala Ali-Ibrahima, Innaka Hamidun Majid.” [O Allah! Send Your Salat (Graces, Honors and Mercy) on Muhammad and on his wives and on his offspring as You sent Your Salat (Graces, Honors and Mercy) on Ibrahim’s (Abraham) family; and send Your Blessings on Muhammad and on his wives and on his offspring, as You send Your Blessings on Ibrahim’s family, for You are the Most Praiseworthy, the Most Glorious.”]


Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume-4, Book 60, P.375

(3394) Narrated Abu Hurairah:  Allah’s Messenger, pbuh, said, “On the night of my Al-Isra (Journey by Night) (to the heavens), I saw (the Prophet) Musa (Moses) who was a thin person with lank hair, looking like one of the men of the tribe of Shanu’a; and I saw Isa (Jesus) who was of average height with red face as if he had just come out of a bathroom.  And I resemble Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) more than any of his offspring does.  Then I was given two cups, one containing milk and the other wine.  Jibril (Gabriel) said, “Drink whatever you like.”  I took the milk and drank it.  Jibril said, “You have accepted what is natural (True Religion i.e. Islam), and if you had taken the wine, your followers would have gone astray.”


Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume-4, Book 60, P377

(3398) Narrated Abu Sa’id:  The Prophet, pbuh, said, “People will be struck with unconsciousness on the Day of Resurrection and I will be the first to regain consciousness, and behold!  There I will see Musa (Moses) holding one of the pillars of Allah’s Throne.  I will wonder whether he has become conscious before me or he has been exempted, because of his unconsciousness at the Tur (mountain) which he received (on the earth).”


Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume-4, Book 60, P387

(3408) Narrated Abu Hurairah:  A Muslim and a Jew quarreled.  The Muslim taking an oath, said, “By Him Who has preferred Muhammad, pbuh, over all people!”  The Jew said, “By Him Who has preferred Musa (Moses) over all people.”  The Muslim raised his hand and slapped the Jew, who came to the Prophet, pbuh, to tell him what happened between him and the Muslim.  The Prophet, pbuh, said, “Don’t give me superiority over Musa (Moses), for the people will become unconscious (on the Day of Resurrection) and I will be the first to gain consciousness to see Musa standing and holding a side of Allah’s Throne.  I will not know if he has been among those people who have become unconscious and that he has gain consciousness before me, or he has been amongst those whom Allah has exempted.”


Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume-4, Book 60, P390

(3414) Narrated Abu Hurairah:  Once, while a Jew was selling something, he was offered a price that he was not pleased with.  So, he said, “No, by Him Who gave Musa (Moses) superiority over all human beings!”  Hearing him, an Ansari man got up and slapped him on his face and said, “You say: By Him Who gave Musa superiority over all human beings although the Prophet (Muhammad, pbuh) is present amongst us!”  The Jew went to the Prophet, pbuh, said, “O Abul-Qasim!  I am under the assurance and contract of security, so what right does so-and-so have to slap me?”  The Propeht, pbuh, asked the other, “Why have you slapped him on his face.”  He told him the whole story.  The Prophet, pbuh, became angry till anger appeared on his face, and said, “Don’t give superiority to any Prophet amongst Allah’s Prophets, for when the trumpet will be blown, everyone on the earth and in the heavens will become unconscious except those whom Allah will exempt.  The trumpet will be blown for the second time and I will be the first to be resurrected to see Musa holding Allah’s Throne.  I will not know whether the unconsciousness which Musa received on the Day of Tur has been sufficient for him, or he has got up before me.”


Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume-4, Book 60, P.391

(3416) Narrated Abu Hurairah:  The Prophet, pbuh, said, “None should say that I am better than Yunus (Jonah) bin Matta.”


Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume-4, Book 60, P.409

(3443) Narrated Abu Hurairah:  Allah’s Messenger, pbuh, said, “Both in this world and in the Hereafter, I am the nearest of all the people to Isa (Jesus), the son of Maryam (Mary).  The Prophets are paternal brothers; their mothers are different, but their religion is one (i.e. Islamic Monotheism).”


Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume-4, Book 60, P.410

(3445) Narrated Umar: I heard the Prophet, pbuh, saying, “Do not exaggerate in praising me as the Christians praised the son of Maryam (Mary), for I am only a slave.  So, call me the slave of Allah and His Messenger.”


Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume-4, Book 60, P.414

(3453, 3454) Narrated Aishah and Ibn Abbas:  On his deathbed Allah’s Messenger, pbuh, put a sheet over his face and when he felt hot, he would remove it from his face.  When in that state (of putting and removing the sheet) he said, “May Allah’s Curse be on the Jews and the Christians for they built places of worship at the graves of their Prophets.”  (By that) he intended to warn (the Muslims) from what they had done.


Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume-4, Book 60, P.431

(3483)  Narrated Abu Mas’ud Uqba:  The Prophet, pbuh, said, “One of the (basic) sayings of An-Nubuwwa (the Prophethood) which the people have got is, “If you do not feel ashamed, then do whatever you like.”


Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume-2, Book 23, P.244

(1341) Narrated Aishah:  When the Prophet, pbuh, became ill, some of his wives talked about a church which they had seen in Ethiopia and it was called Mariya.  Umm Salma and Umm Habiba had been to Ethiopia, and both of them narrated its (the church’s) beauty and the pictures it contained.  The Prophet, pbuh, raised his head and said, “Those are the people who, whenever a pious man dies amongst them, make a mosque (a place of worship) at his grave and then they make those pictures in it.  Those are the worst creatures in front of Allah.”

Reminder of a Islamic Will document

Important reminder Islamic Will – a Must document in Islam 

Every individual Muslim should have this document ready. A person who has house, car, money in account (etc) and have children must prepare will immediately. A person who has nothing mentioned above, should prepare Will because he still has his body. Yes that’s correct body.

Why?  Here is business case… Three incidents in Windsor Ontario

1. Person died on Islam family members wanted him cremated. Imam tried convincing them no success. This guy never prepared will stating his funeral should be according to Islamic belief

2. Family (parents) died social services took over custody of children. Later adopted by non-Muslims.

3. Person died and assets went to estate after all distribution process. End receiver received peanut most used up by official departments involved such as bank, lawyers etc

4. On 12 Jan 2019 was a Janaza (funeral) of a 27 year old young man died in apartment found by police after a week when neighbours complained smell from the apartment. If identity would have not established he could end up in cremation as it is cheapest method. 

For your awareness in north America 
– you don’t need lawyer – you don’t need to pay any one to prepare will for you
– you don’t need to have document endorse by any department what so ever 
How to prepare? 
– print 2 copies of ready to go Will document /template from this link https://windsorislamicassociation.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/WIA-IslamicWill-1.pdf
– fill in the blanks 
– have two people witness that you signed these papers… Each page 
– keep one copy at home, one in the bank safety box if you have, otherwise some in safe place
– Windsor dominion masjid offers free service to keep a copy for you in masjid’s safe box 
– announce with in your family, extended family and friends that you have prepared Will, so in case something happens all have information about your will.

Please pass it to other fellow Muslims in neighbourhood and offer them support in making one you will be getting rewards. Jzk

(25) CHAPTER. Taking a bath by a person observing Saum (fast).

Ibn ‘Umar soaked a garment in water and then put it over himself while he was observing Saum (fasting). Ash-Sha’bi entered a bathroom while he was observing Saum. Ibn ‘Abbas said, “There is no harm in tasting the food of the pots or other meals. Al-Hasan said, “There is no harm for the person observing saum (fast) to rinse his mouth with water and to cool his body.” Ibn Mas’ud said, “At the night of your fasting day, you had better oil and comb your hair.”
