Allah(S.W.T.) said in a Hadith Qudsi : “O son of Adam! if you observe contentment, you will need nobody. If you abandon jealousy, you will find comfort. If you refrain from the Haram (Unlawful), you will attain Ikhlas (sincerity). If you abandon backbiting, you will attain my love. Those who detach themselves from people will be safe from their harms. Those who speak little will attain perfection in thinking. Those who are content with little will have put their trust in Allah(S.W.T.).
O Son of Adam ! While you are not acting upon what you know, why are you still acquiring knowledge? O son of Adam you are working for this world as if you would never die and accumulating wealth as if you would live forever in this world!
O dunya! Deprive he who is attached to you and turn to the who turns away from you. And show yourself sweet to those who gaze at you!”
(Al-Mawaiz Fil-Ahadith Al-Qudsiyyah, Imam Ghazzali)

Indeed Allah loves those who repent and those who keep clean.(Suratul Baqarah, Verse 222)
Cleanliness is very important aspect of Islam. According to a hadeeth, Rasoolillah(sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said,”Cleanliness is half of Imaan[faith].” (Mishkaat) As Muslims, we should therefore pay attention to the following:
1- Cleanliness of the Mind and the heart
Muslims are duty-bound to perform good deeds and have pure thoughts. We should not have evil thoughts, not , nor should we harm others. Lies and falsehood are forms of filth and impurity.
All types of sin and evil have a bad effect on the soul.
2- Cleanliness in our homes and surroundings
Muslim homes should be kept clean and taahir (pure) at all times. Dropping litter any where other then in a litter pin is wrong and should be avoided.
3- Cleanliness in places of worship
Masaajid must be kept clean and perfumed.
4- Cleanliness of our bodies and clothing
AS Muslims, we should not allow any form of impurity or dirt to gather or remain on our bodies or chothing.
Tiirarka salaadda waa qaybaha aasaaska ah ay ka koobanto salaadda ay salaaddu bureyso haddii looga tago kas ama hilmaan.
Waana sidan soo socota:
Takbiirada ixraamka, qummaaati u istaagga marka la awoodo, akhrinta Faatixada waxaan ma’muumka ahayn, rukuuca iyo ka soo kaca xaggiisa, sujuudda, fadhiga labada sujuudood dhexdood, tashahudka dambe iyo u fariisigiisa, ku xasilidda salaadda iyo u gudashadeeda si deggan, salaam naqsiga.
Waajibyada salaada, waa qaybaha waajibka ah ee salaadda ay bureyso salaadda haddii looga tago kas, laakiinse hadduu qofku illoobo ama ka maaho waxaa la jideeyey wax uu ku kabo nuqsaankaa oo ah sujuudu sahwiga, sida noo iman doonta.
Waajibaadka salaadda waa sidan soo socota:
Dhammaan takbiirooyinka waxaan ahayn takbiirada ixraamka, qowlka Subxaana Rabbiyal Cadiim mar keliya, qowlka Samicallaahu liman xamidah qofka keligi tukan iyo iimaamka, qowlka Rabbanaa walakal Xamdu ay dhammaan wada oranayaan, qowlka Subxaana Rabbiyal Aclaa mar keliya sujuudda, qowlka Rabbiqfir lii mar keliya fadhiga labada sujuudood dhexdood, tashahudka koowaad, waajibyadan waxay kaga dhacaan qofka hilmaanka, waxaana lagu kabaa sujuudu sahwiga.
Sunnooyinka salaadda: Wax kasta oo aan ka mid ahayn tiirarka salaadda iyo waajibyadeeda ee leh oraahyo iyo ficillo waa sunno dhammeystir u ah salaadda ee la doonayo in la dhowro, laakiinse salaadda kuma burto haddii laga tago.
Waa labo sujuud uu sharciyeey Allaah si loogu kabo naqsiga iyo gefka gala salaadda.
Goormay bannaan tahay?
Waxaa la sharciyeeyey sujuudda sahwiga xaaladaha soo socda:
- Haddii uu ku kordhiyo muslimka salaadda rukuuc ama sujuud ama istaag ama fadhi hilmaan darti iyo gef wuxuu u sujuudayaa hilmaankaa sujuudu sahwi.
- Marka ay wax ka nuqsaamaan tiirarka waxaa saaran inuu la yimaado tiirka naaquska ah, wuxuuna u sujuudayaa sujuudu sahwi salaadda aakhirkeeda.
- Hadduu ka tago waajib ka mid ah waajibyada salaaddaa sida tashahudka hore sahwi iyo hilmaan awgi, wuxuu markaas sujuudayaa sujuudu sahwi.
- Hadduu ka shakiyo tirada rakcooyinka, wuxuu qaadanayaa inta uu hubo oo tirada yar ah, wuxuuna sujuudayaa sujuudu sahwi.
Sifada sujuudda sahwiga: Wuxuu sujuudayaa labo sajuud uu fariisanayo dhexdood sida sujuudda iyo fadhiga labada sujuudood dhexdood ee salaadda.
Waqiga sujuudda sahwiga: Sujuudda sahwiga waxay leedahay labo waqti, uu qofku sameyn karo midduu doono.
- Salaanta ka hor iyo kaddib tashahudka dambe wuxuu sujuudayaa sujuudu sahwi markaas salaamo naqsan.
- Kaddib markuu ka salaamo naqsado salaadda wuxuu sujuudayaa labada sujuud sahwi markaasuu mar kale salaam naqsanayaa.
Allaah wuxuu u jideeyey sujuudu sahwiga si loogu kabo waxa ka naaqusma ama khalad gala salaadda
Waxyaalaha buriya salaadda:
Salaadda waxay ku burtaa:
- Ka tegid tiir ka mid ah tiirarka salaadda ama shardi ka mid ah shuruudaha salaadda isagoo qofku kara kas ha looga tago ama hilmaan.
- Salaadda waxay ku burtaa ka tegid waajib ka mid ah waajibyada salaaddaa kas.
- Salaadda waxay ku burtaa in lagu hadlo hadal aan salaadda la xiriirin si kas ah.
- Salaadda waxay ku burtaa qosol cod dheer ah.
- Waxay ku burtaa dhaqdhaqaaqa hadduu badan yahay, is xigo, aanay baahi keenin.
Waxyaalaha ku xun salaadda aan ku habbooneyn:
Waa acmaasha naaqusisa ajarka salaadda oo tegsiisa khushuuceeda iyo haybaddeeda waana sidan soo socota:
- Waa wax xun ah aan habbooneyn milicsiga adigoo ku jira salaadda, waayo Nabiga waxaa wax laga weydiiyey milicsiga salaadda gudaheeda, markaasuu wuxuu yiri: “Waa xatooyo uu ka xado shaydaanka salaadda addoonka” (Al-Bukhaari 718)
- Waa wax xun aan habbooneyn ku cayaaridda gacanta iyo wejiga, iyo saaridda gacanta kelyaha, iyo is dhex gelinta faraha iyo jucintooda.
- Waa wax xun aan habbooneyn inuu qofku galo salaad isagoo qalbigiisa ka maahsan yahay baahi darteed uu u qabo inuu musqul galo, ama baahi uu u qabo cunto loo keenay, sida uu Nabigu yiri: “Ma aha inaad aaddo salaad adigoo cunto laguu keenay aad u baahan tahay, iyo qofka ay heyso kaadi ama saxaro” (Muslim 560)
Abdullah inb Masood (R.A.) reported:“Rasululah (S.A.W) said: “Our Rabb is pleased with two people. The one who goes to Masjid to pray Salah leaving his beloved ones and his warm bed. Allah (S.W.T.) says about such a person: “O my angels! Look at that servant of mine, he is going (to the masjid) to pray Salah hoping to attain my promise (Jannah, reward and my pleasure) and safety my warning (Jahannam ,torment and my wrath)by leaving his warm and cosy bed while he is with beloved ones.”
And the one who continues to fight until he dies or gets killed when he and his friends have lost the battle since he knows the consequences (sins) of fleeing from the battlefield, as he aware of his religious duty and the reward he will get on continuing to fight. About such a person Allah (S.W.T.) says to His angels: “O my angels look at that servant of mine, he is keeping on fighting until he is killed to attain the things I promised and to safeguard himself from the things I have warned against.”
Together with this we pray Allah (swt) to give mercy and blessings on all humans and make this world a happy and peaceful place.

After the creation of Adam, just one original message has been repeatedly delivered to mankind through the history of human.
Thus, to remind people about it and bring them back on track, many prophets and messengers including Adam, Noah,Abraham, Moses, Juses, and Muhammad(saw) were sent by the only true God to convey this message:
The true God is only ONE. Worship Him ALONE and keep His commandments.
God sent these major prophets and messengers to accomplish several tasks and missions, some of which are:
1. To receive guidance from God and deliver it to people.
2. To convey the message that of God is One.
3. To be role models to their people.
4. To instruct their people to fear God and keep his commandments.
5. To teach their followers important religious and moral tenets and worldly matters.
6. To guide those who deviated, disobeyed God, or worshipped other gods or idols.
7. To tell people about their final destination (the last Day) and what leads to Paradise or Hellfire.
Just one message by Dr.Naji I. Artan
Allah has given us many wonderful gifts.Tongue is one of them.It is wonderful to be able to speak, but we should see that everything we speak is true. Allah does not like the liars. Allah’s Messenger (saw) has said, “Be truthful. For truthfulness leads to piety and piety leads to paradise.If a man holds to truth and persisists in it; he will be recorded with Allah as a truthful man. Beware of lying. For lying leads to wickedness and wickedness leads to Hell. If a man lies and persists in it, he wwill be recorded with llah as a liar.”
Types of truthfulness:
Truthfulness may be classified into three types:
a) Truthfulness of speech
b) Truthfulness of action and
c) Truthfulness of intention

The World Divine Book Dictionary (1995; Vol. L-z page 1326) has defined a miracle as “ a wonderful happening that is beyond the known laws of nature.”
A typical example of these laws is the appearance of the sun from the east. If it appears from the West, it becomes a miracle and sign.
Encyclopaedia Britannica (1983; Vol. 12 P269) toes the above line of reasoning and defines miracles as “extraordinary and astonishing happenings that are attributed to the presence and action of an ultimate or divine power,” and that is Allah, the Almighty.
The Quran is called a miracle because it has certain features which make it unique and of inimitable quality. This inimitability is called “ijaaz al-Quraan,” the “miraculous nature” of the Quran.
The word “’ijaaz” is derived from the root ‘’’ajaza’’ which has various meanings, ranging from ‘’ to be incapable, to make powerless, ‘’to ‘’to be impossible, to be inimitable’’.
In technical language, it means the inimitable and unique nature of the Quran which leaves its opponents powerless or incapable of meeting the challenge which the revelation poses to them (divine, 1985,149). Indeed, the miraculous nature of the Quran has another unique dimension.This dimension is the mention of diverse knowledge that mankind was unaware of.
In the areas of science, psychology, medicine,…etc, the Quran has preceded intellectual prowess of all times and this will be clearly seen when we look at the diverse miracles in the Divine Book.
According to Muslim theologians, the following five conditions must be met before an event can be accepted as a miracle from Allah, the Almighty:
- That no one else apart from Allah, the Master of the world, is able to do it;
- That it breaks the usual norms and differs from the laws of nature (that is the way nature normally is);
- That it serves as proof for the truth and claim of the messenger;
- That it happens in accordance with the messenger’s claim;
- That the event happens through the messenger and no one else(Saabuuni,1981;99)
Imam Al Qurtubii(d.656/1258) in his commentary on the Quran has indicated the following ten aspects of the ‘ijaaz al-Quraan:
- Its language excels all other Arabic Language
- Its style excels all another Arabic style;
- Its comprehensiveness connot be matched;
- Its Legislation connot be surpassed;
- Its narrations about the unknown can only result from revelation;
- Its lack of contradiction with the sound natural sciences;
- Its fulfilment of all that it promises, both good tidings and threat;
- The knowledge it comprises (both legal and concerning the creation);
- Its fulfilment of human needs;
- Its effect on the hearts of men;
Such is the unique, inimitable and miraculous state of the Quran and in the coming lines, I intend to look at the diverse miracles associated with the Divine Book.

Purity is the power of which the mysteries revealed to you. The purification of body strengthens your soul which ultimately bring you close to Allah. This is the reason why Islam emphasizes on purity, as it is the basic part of faith in Islam.
Every Muslim performs ablution (wudhu), before offering prayers. It is a simple, certain and obligatory pattern of washing one’s body parts with which they start their prayers. As Allah said in Holy Quran that,
“O you who have believed, when you rise to [perform] prayer, wash your faces and your forearms to the elbows and wipe over your heads and wash your feet to the ankles”. (Al-Maidah)
After about 1400 years, this pattern of washing the body parts became an amazing thing for scientists all around the globe. Many Muslims are unaware that ablution is a medical protection they are applying to their body.
Here are the medical benefits of ablution, the scientists came to know after years of research.
- Ablution Refreshes Your Body
The Prophet (PBUH) recommended ablution before going to bed. Yoga experts also encourage washing of hands, arms, eyes, legs, mouth and genitals before sleep with cool water for a deep sleep.
Source: Prayer in Islam
Ablution stimulates biological rhythms of the body and specifically Biological Active Sports (BASes) which are similar to the idea behind Chinese reflex-therapy. It is a treatment which includes hydro-massage of the BAS, their thermal and corporal stimulation.
- Washing Nose Prevents Microbe Diseases

After a microscopic investigation, it is confirmed that the noses of those who do not perform ablution were exposed to a huge amount of harmful microbes which can cause many diseases.
- Washing Arms Activates Blood Circulation
It is also established that blood circulation at the limbs is weaker because they are far from the centre of the blood pumping heart. Therefore, their washing activates blood circulation at these remote areas of the body, making the person more vigorous.
- Washing Hands Prevents You from Pneumonia
Source: The Atlantic
A study carried out in Pakistan found that over 50% of pneumonia-related infections in children under the age of 5 could simply be prevented by the washing of hands with soap. Hand washing also reduces respiratory infections by removing infectious pathogens to be found on the hands.
- Rinsing Mouth Prevents Systematic Diseases
Source: Prayer in Islam
It is to be noted that Muslims wash their hands before rinsing their mouth, ensuring that they rinse their mouth with clean water. During the ablution, Muslims rinse their mouth in order to remove food particles and bacteria from the mouth. Most of them prefer Miswak – a natural toothbrush made from a twig or root of the tree which has its own antiseptic properties, for cleaning the mouth before ablution.
According to a recent study published in the Clinical Microbiology Reviews Journal by the name of ‘Systemic Diseases Caused by Oral Infection’, have found a direct link between a lack of oral hygiene and systemic diseases. Systemic diseases include Cardiovascular Disease, Bacterial Pneumonia, Osteoporosis, Low Birth Weight and Diabetes-Related Complications.
In every Islamic ritual, there are numerous hidden scientific benefits on which scientists are working. Muslims are, by real means, blessed with Allah’s undeniable wisdom.
Thank you, my greatest Lord (Allah)
