  1. 'Ashura' commemorates the day that Allah saved the Children of Israel from Pharaoh. Fasting on Muharram 10, known as the Day of 'Ashura', expiates for the sins of the past year. When the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) arrived in Madinah in 622 CE, he found that the Jews there fasted on Muharram 10 and asked them the reason for their fasting on this day. They said," This is a blessed day. On this day Allah saved the Children of Israel from their enemy (in Egypt) and so Prophet Musa [Moses] fasted on this day giving thanks to Allah." The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, "We are closer to Musa than you are." He fasted on that day and commanded Muslims to fast on this day. (Al-Bukhari) The following year, Allah commanded the Muslims to fast the month of Ramadan, and the fasting of 'Ashura' became optional. It is also reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) intended to fast on the ninth and tenth. Ibn 'Abbas reported: The Messenger of Allah fasted on the day of 'Ashura' and ordered the people to fast on it. The people said, "O Messenger of Allah, it is a day that the Jews and Christians honor." The Prophet said, "When the following year comes, Allah willing, we shall fast on the ninth." The death of the Prophet came before the following year. (Muslim and Abu Dawud) For more on 'Ashura' and Muharram, please read:¤ The Significance of Fasting the Day of 'Ashura' Virtues of the Month of Muharram & Fasting during It Thus, according to scholars, you may choose to fast 'Ashura' on three days (ninth, tenth, and eleventh); two days (ninth and tenth); or one day only (the tenth). The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, "Fasting the day of 'Ashura' (is of great merits), I hope that Allah will accept it as an expiation for (the sins committed in) the previous year." (Muslim) But this expiation of minor sins comes only if you avoid major sins. It is a big mistake to rely on fasting a single day to "wipe your slate clean." If you neglect your daily Prayers or the fast of Ramadan, or if you backbite, lie, commit adultery or other major sins, fasting on 'Ashura' alone will not atone for your sins. http://www.islamicity.com/articles/Articles.asp?re f=IO0801-3489

  4. When the world pushes you to your knees, your are in the perfect position to pray. If Allah brings you to it, He will bring you through it. Twakkul: Make Du'a, Do your best, And leave the Rest To Allah. Be yourself beautiful, and you will find the world full of beauty. Suffering is a gift. In it is hidden mercy. - Jalaluddin al-Rumi A friend cannot be considered a friend until he is tested in three occasions: in time of need, behind your back, and after your death. - Ali ibn abi Talib (radiAllah anhu) Stingyness has nothing to do with how much money you have. Neither does generosity. Its about how much heart you've got. Better to avoid the poison altogether than to try to heal from the damage it causes. The Muslim ummah is an unique ummah among the whole of mankind: Their Land is One, their War is One, their Peace is One, theirHonor is One and their Trust is One. - Muhammad (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) [narrated by Ahmad] If you are aware of your humility, then you are arrogant. - Ibn Ata'illah To admonish your brother in private is to advise him and improve him. But to admonish him publicly is to disgrace and shame him. - Imam Shafi (rahimullah) Knowledge is understanding that a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad. Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal (rahimullah) was asked about the correct meaning of this hadith: 'When you hear something form or about your brother, ascribe to it the best interpretation until you can no longer do so.' He replied, Find an excuse for him by saying, "Maybe he said this, or maybe he meant such and such." The World is three days: As for yesterday, it has vanished, along with all that was in it. As for tomorrow, you may never see it. As for today, it is yours, so work in it. - Hassan al-Basri Whoever follows patience, success will follow him.
  5. yeey has no more room to work with he needs to open that door and get out and let someone else try to do the job. If he wants to even save some face and go out with dignity he should resign like a man and not wait until February 2009, besides this would mark the best thing he has ever done as president of SOMALIA!!
  6. MOGADISHU, Dec. 25 (Xinhua) -- Somalia's presidential spokesman, Hussien Mohamed Hubsired, Thursday said President Abdulahi Yusuf Ahmed is not planning to resign next Saturday as media reports has been indicating a day after his newly appointed Prime Minister stepped down. "The president has no intention of resigning next Saturday or any other time as some media outlets have been speculating about lately," Hubsired told reporters in Mogadishu. "It is a media manipulation and a cheap propaganda by some rival politicians who want to create confusion in the country." Hubsired has been responding to media reports about repeated suggestions that President Yusuf would resign next Saturday when he is expected to address the parliament. Mohamed Mohamoud Guled, named by Yusuf last week as new Prime Minister to replace Nur Hassan Hussien whom he fell out with, on Wednesday has tended his resignation, saying he did not want to bean obstacle to peace. The parliament and other countries around the world rejected to accept the Somali President's decision to sack Hussien whom the parliament overwhelmingly endorsed. Kenyan and The East African regional body, the Inter Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD) threatened to impose sanctions on Yusuf and his associates whom they deemed as an obstacle to peace.

  7. As for the tricks of Shaytaan against you they are seven. 1. He obstructs you from doing acts of obedience . Repel him, if Allah protects you, by realizing that you are in need of these acts of obedience in order to gather provision from this life for the next life which will have no ending. 2. He commands you to procrastinate in acts of obedience . Repel him , if Allah protects you, by realizing that your appointed time is not in your hands and that you could die at any moment. 3. He commands you to rush in acts of obedience by suggesting to you , " Hurry! In order that you can do so-and-so!" Repel him, if Allah protects you, that realizing that few acts of obedience done with perfection is better than many done incompletely. 4. He commands you to perfect your worship in order to be seen of men. Repel him, if Allah protects you, by realizing that the sight of Allah is enough for you over the sight of men. 5. He whispers arrogance and pride in your heart by saying, " Who is greater and more precise than your obedience?" Repel him, if Allah protects you, , by realizing that your acts of obedience to Allah is a blessing from Allah, not from yourself. If it were not for the bounty of Allah, you would not be able to establish any act of obedience , which are nothing next to the blessing of Allah Ta`ala. 6. This is the greatest of his tricks, he says to you, " Make strenuous effort in keeping your obedience of Allah secret. Soon He will make your acts manifest before the world!" Repel him, if Allah protects you, that you are a slave of Allah and that He alone is your Master. If He wills , He will manifest you and is He wills He will keep you concealed. If He wills, He will make you important and if He wills He will make you insignificant. That is for Him to decide, and you should not care whether He manifest your good deeds to people or not, because there is nothing in thier hands worth seeking after. 7. He suggest in your heart, " There is no need for you to perform acts of obedience to Allah. Truly, if you were created and destined to be among the people of bliss, then there is no danger in you neglecting the acts of worship. And if you were created and destined to be among the people of wretchednedd, then there is no benefit in doing them. Repel him , if Allah protects you, that realizing that you are a slave . And that it the duty of a slave to obey the commands as is the rights to slaveness (`ubuudiyya). Allah is the Rabb, and He knows the rights of Lordship (rubuubiyya). Thus these acts of obedience will benefit you in every way if you were created and destined to be among the people of bliss. It will benefit you by increasing your reward. And if you were not created and destined for bliss, then in no way Allah will punish you for acts of obedience. These acts of obedience will not harm you. For to be entered into the fire while you are obedient to Allah is more precious to you than you being entered into the fire while you are disobedient. And how is it possible for you to enter the fire when the Promise of Allah is true and His Words are Truthful. For He has promised a tremendous reward for acts of obedience. Whoever meets Allah Ta`ala while he has faith and obedience will never enter the fire and he has dully earned the Paradise by the Promise of Allah the Truthful and not by any act. It is in that Allah has informed us by His saying, " Allah`s praises are due to Allah who made good to us His Promise and has made us inherit the earth and we may abide in the Paradise whenever we please. Excellent is the Reward of those who work. 39:74. Therefore my brothers, wake up! It is as He said. So seek the aid of Allah alone and seek refuge with Him. All matters are in His hands and from Him alone is success. And there is no power nor might except with Allah the Exalted the Great.
