Prayer Time

  |      |      |   The Message of Islam:

 Praise and thanks are due to Allah; the Knower of the unseen. Peace and blessings of Allah be upon the holy Prophet of Islam, his family and all companions. To proceed;

Allah says in the Glorious Qur’an:

??????? ???? ??????????? ????? ???????? ???????????? ??????? ?

“They wish that you reject faith as they have rejected (faith), and thus that you all become equal (like one another).” (An-Nisaa’: 89).

Though the above verse was revealed exposing the evil machinations of the hypocrites when they left the Muslim army and returned to Al-Madina during the Battle of Uhud, it also describes the behaviour of the unbelievers of this era.

The Kuffaar plot against the Muslims by night and betrays them in the day. Enmity towards the Muslims is vividly shown in their face and their utterances. They bite their fingertips in severe anger against the Muslims and their inner-self are full of evil plans against them. They pretend to be trustworthy and good mannered while they are actually pursuing their own interests. Allaah exposes them when he says: “Hatred has already appeared from their mouths but what their breasts conceal is far worse.” (Aal-Imran: 118).


They hide their lies and treachery in apparent truthfulness and sincerity, please you with words of their mouths while their hearts reject you. They argue with falsehood and conceal the truth. Their evil plots against the Muslims are great; but Allaah will render their plan fruitless, for, “the plots of disbelievers are nothing but error.”


Fellow Muslims! Following the Kaafir is disgraceful while disobeying them is might. Allaah says: “O Prophet! Keep your duty to Allaah and obey not the disbelievers and the hypocrites (i.e. do not follow their advice).” (Al-Ahzaab: 1).

Their knowledge is limited to this world and yet Sheikhul Islam said, “All deeds and affairs of a disbeliever inevitably have a defect that prevents them from being completely beneficial to him. All his affairs are either false or defective.” As for the knowledge of the hereafter, the disbelievers are completely ignorant of it.

Allah says:

??????????? ???????? ????? ?????????? ?????????? ?????? ???? ?????????? ???? ??????????

 “They know only the outside appearance of the life of the world (i.e. the matters of their livelihood, or irrigating, or reaping, or sowing, etc.) And they are heedless of the hereafter.” (Ar-Room: 7).


In conclusion, a muslim must always beware of the plots of the unbelievers. He should not compromise with anything that may lead to negating his faith.

His concern should be how to please his Creator and not others. The unbeleivers will never be pleased with you except when you completely abondone your religion. Allah says:

????? ??????? ????? ?????? ?????????? ???? ????????????? ???? ?????? ???????????? ????????? ??????? ????? ????? ?????????? ???? ?????? ??? ????????? ?????? ???????? ?

“ Quite a number of the People of the Book wish they could Turn you (people) back to infidelity after ye have believed, from selfish envy, after the Truth hath become Manifest unto them:…”(baqara:109)
