Dr. Israr Ahmed: Innalillahi Wa Inaa Ilayhi Rajioon

May Allah (swt) accept the work of Dr. Israr Ahmad, forgive him, and grant him the highest position in Firdous. The ummah, and especially the people of Pakistan, have experienced a huge loss with the passing of one of our scholars.

“Truly, Allah does not remove Sacred Knowledge by taking it out of servants, but rather by taking back the souls of Islamic scholars [in death], until, when He has not left a single scholar, the people take the ignorant as leaders, who are asked for and who give Islamic legal opinion without knowledge, misguided and misguiding”

(Sahih Bukhari – Fath al-Bari, 1.194, hadith 100)

Dr Israr Ahmed Died: Dr. Israr Ahmed (اسرار احمد ), born April 26, 1932 and Died April 14, 2010 at 3am at his home in Lahore,Pakistan.  Dr Israr had spent the last four decades in reviving Quran centered Islamic philosophy and staunchly believed in the establishment of an Islamic political system in the country. Dr. Israr was suffering from back pain and heart disorders for a long time and his funeral prayers will be held on Wednesday in Lahore.

Dr Israr Ahmed has to his credit over 60 books on different aspects of Islam and religion, nine of which have been translated in English. He was also bestowed with a Sitara-e-eImtiaz in 1981 for his services in the field of religion. His followers are found all across the world particularly in the sub-continent, Middle East and North America. He also delieverd lectures in a program on an international 24 religious television channel.

Of the signs of the Day of Judgement, the beloved Prophet Muhammad (saw) stated that the prevalence of earthquakes will increase (see #17 as well as a previous post of mine). Over the past year especially we have seen a multitude of increasing number of major of earthquakes causing destruction, injury, and death throughout the world. We all know about what has happened in Haiti, Indonesia, Central America, and various other parts of the world recently. Today I read about the recent earthquake in China and I can’t help but feel a sense of trepidation waiting to hear the bad news of another area hit. Also, each time I hear about another earthquake I am reminded about the truth of the words of the Prophet (saw) as well as the upcoming events foretold. Along with helping those effected, I have this growing feeling that we need to wake up and get out of this state of ghafla we are in. It brings about a feeling of apprehension in regards to the major signs of the Day of Judgement. The minor signs will occur gradually, although almost all have already passed or are present today, and the Prophet (saw) stated that the major signs will come quickly, one after another. According to a hadeeth of Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him), the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The signs will come one after another, like beads falling from a string”. (Narrated by al-Tabaraani in al-Mu’jam al-Awsat; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’).

Ihsan – Excellence & Perfection

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “Allah has commanded that everything (one does), they should do with excellence (ihsan). When you sacrifice, sacrifice well. Sharpen your knife and make it easy for the animal to be slaughtered.” [Sahih Muslim]

According to another hadith, the Sahabah were preparing somebody’s grave. The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) told them to make it in a straight line. He told them that it made no difference to the deceased whether their grave were straight or not, but when Muslims do anything they should attempt it with excellence.

Don’t just aim to be ‘good’, be outstanding! This is what is required of a Muslim, in everything they do!

Real Love?

If an individual loves someone, there is a general tendency to follow suit in loving many of the things in life which the beloved cherishes. I’m beginning to read Tariq Ramadan’s book, In the Footsteps of the Prophet, and after reading about the children of the Prophet (saw) I began to wonder how many of us who claim to love the Prophet (saw) truly love the children which he so dearly loved. All of us would be able to recall vivid details about our friends’ and relatives’ children, but if a simple litmus test that consisted of the absolute most basic questions of how many children the Prophet (saw) had, what their names were, and what order they were born in was put into place, I wonder how many of us would pass. Then I ask myself again if we truly do love the Beloved of Allah (saw)….
