news from jeddah





First Hajj Pilgrims Arrive


The Arab News reports that the first group of Hajj pilgrims is arriving in Saudi Arabia today. Seventy-nine pilgrims from South Africa will make their way to Makkah and Madinah for tours and visits prior to the Hajj. Over the next few weeks, nearly three million people are expected to make their way to Makkah, Saudi Arabia for the annual Hajj pilgrimage.


==


JEDDAH: The first group of Haj pilgrims is due to arrive in the Kingdom on Thursday, said Abdul Wahid bin Burhan Seifuddin, chairman of the board of directors of the Tawafa Establishment for Non-Arab African Pilgrims.

Seifuddin said the batch, consisting of 79 South Africans, will arrive in two groups — the first, consisting of 54 pilgrims, will go straight to Makkah while the second, consisting of 25 pilgrims, will proceed to Madinah. Seifuddin said he and other Tawafa officials will be at King Abdul Aziz International Airport to receive the pilgrims.

doa :

May Allah Subhanhuataalya accept Hajj of all the Hajjis this year and make the Umrah and Hajj easy for them. Saudi Hajj Authority should strive hard to facilitate a hastle free and incident free Hajj and Umrah this year.

==

Hajj symbolizes unity. let Muslims all over the world be united and have one voice, not just united in places of worship only and fighting and condemning one another outside the mosque. Let Islam be seen in our actions, businesses, our homes, place of work and in interactions with non Muslims. may Allah accept our ibadah all and count us among His righteous servants.

For the pepole how don't know about Quran this is a small description :

What is the Al Quran?

The Al Quran is the constitution of the Muslims from which they derive the teachings which organize both their religious and everyday affairs. It differs from the previous Divine Books in the following ways:

* It is the last Divine Book which was revealed, and for that reason, Allah, the Exalted, promised to protect it from any distortion until the Last Day.
Allah says:
(Indeed, it is We who have sent down this Reminder [i.e., the Quran] and indeed, it is We who are its Guardian. ) (15:9)
* The Quran includes all the legislations which reform society and guarantees happiness for all in its implementation.
* The Quran has documented the stories of the Prophets and Messengers, and what happened between them and their peoples, from Adam till Muhammad, may Allah exalt his mention.
* It was revealed to all of mankind so that they would live a life of peace and happiness, and to take them out of darkness and bring them into the light.
* Reciting, memorizing and teaching it are acts of worship.

What Do They Say About the Quran?

Maurice Bucaille said in his Book:

The Quran, and Modern Science: 'A totally objective examination of it [the Quran] in the light of modern knowledge, leads us to recognize the agreement between the two, as has been already noted on repeated occasions.

It makes us deem it quite unthinkable for a man of Muhammad's time to have been the author of such statements, on account of the state of knowledge in his day. Such considerations are part of what gives the Quranic Revelation its unique place, and forces the impartial scientist to admit his inability to provide an explanation which calls solely upon materialistic reasoning.'

surah 22 hajj or surah 22 Haji ayat 73 in Quran




surah hajj ayat 73 in Quran

(Quran Surah 22. Al Hajj ayat 73)


O mankind! A similitude has been coined, so listen to it (carefully): Verily! those on whom You call besides Allâh, cannot create (even) a fly, even though they combine together for the purpose. And if the fly snatched away a thing from them, they would have no power to release it from the fly. So weak are (both) the seeker and the sought.

===

Sura Hajj - 22 Pilgrimage (Al-Hajj)

Can They Create a Fly?

73. O people, here is a parable that you must ponder carefully: the idols you set up beside GOD can never create a fly, even if they banded together to do so. Furthermore, if the fly steals anything from them, they cannot recover it; weak is the pursuer and the pursued.

74. They do not value GOD as He should be valued. GOD is the Most Powerful, the Almighty.

75. GOD chooses from among the angels messengers, as well as from among the people. GOD is Hearer, Seer.

76. He knows their past and their future. To GOD belongs the ultimate control of all matters.

77. O you who believe, you shall bow, prostrate, worship your Lord, and work righteousness, that you may succeed.

Proofs for Existence of God from Quran



http://islaamiccreed.wordpress.com/2010/01/10/proofs-for-existence-of-god-from-quran/



How do we know there’s a Rabb? Thousands of theories and maxims revolve around this. But, Quran mentions only a few verses on this. But, Quranic evidences are powerful but simple to understand, unlike the complicated/intricate philosophies

#1: The fact that there’s a creation indicate there’s a creator. Every object must have been made, created, developed by something. Where did you come from?

(Quran Surah 52. Ath Thuur ayat 35)

Were they created by nothing, or were they themselves the creators?

(Quran Surah 31. Luqman ayat 11)

This is the creation of Allâh. So show me that which those (whom you worship), besides Him have created…

(Quran Surah 22. Al Hajj ayat 73)

O mankind! A similitude has been coined, so listen to it (carefully): Verily! those on whom You call besides Allâh, cannot create (even) a fly, even though they combine together for the purpose. And if the fly snatched away a thing from them, they would have no power to release it from the fly. So weak are (both) the seeker and the sought

(Quran Surah 67. Al Mulk ayat 2-3) –> Try to find a slight flaw in the heavens

2. Who has created death and life, that He may test you which of you is best In deed. And He is the All-Mighty, the Oft-Forgiving;

3. Who has created the seven heavens one above another, you can see no fault in the creations of the Most Beneficent. Then look again: “Can you see any rifts?”

#2: Signs of creation. Certain aspects / creations are more majestic or more powerful. You feel small compared to them

(Quran Surah 2. Al Baqarah ayat 164)

Verily! In the creation of the heavens and the earth, and In the alternation of night and day, and the ships which sail through the sea with that which is of use to mankind, and the water (rain) which Allâh sends down from the sky and makes the earth alive therewith after its death, and the moving (living) creatures of All kinds that He has scattered therein, and In the veering of winds and clouds which are held between the sky and the earth, are indeed Ayât (proofs, evidences, signs, etc.) for people of understanding

#3: Innate human nature. Everybody, deep inside, knows stealing is bad, be good to parents, and there’s a God. Prophet was on Fitraa until he became a prophet @ age 40

(Quran Surah 7. Al A’raaf ayat 172)

And (remember) when Your Lord brought forth from the Children of Adam, from their loins, their seed (or from Adam’s loin his offspring) and made them testify as to themselves (saying): “Am I not Your Lord?” they said: “Yes! We testify,” lest you should Say on the Day of Resurrection: “Verily, we have been unaware of this.”

Even atheist cry out God in dire situations

(Quran Surah 10. Yunus ayat 12)

And when harm touches man, He invokes us, lying down on his side, or sitting or standing. but when we have removed his harm from him, he passes on his Way as if He had never invoked us for a harm that touched him!…

#4: Prophets came with perfect books and miracles from God. Try to create a chapter like that in Quran

Five Pillars of Islam: Pilgrimage (Hajj)

Five Pillars of Islam: Pilgrimage (Hajj)

The fifth pillar of Islam is to make a pilgrimage (Hajj) to Makkah, in Saudi Arabia, at least once in one's lifetime. This pillar is obligatory for every Muslim, male or female, provided that he/she is physically and financially able to do so. Prerequisites for performing the Hajj are to be a Muslim, to be free, to be an adult or mature enough, to be of sound mind, and to have the ability to afford the journey and maintain one's dependents back home for the duration. The reward for the Hajj is nothing less than Paradise.

The Hajj is the ultimate form of worship, as it involves the spirit of all the other rituals and demands great sacrifice. On this unique occasion, nearly two million Muslims from all over the globe meet one another in a given year. Regardless of the season, pilgrims wear special clothes (Ihram) - two, very simple, unsown white garments - which strips away all distinctions of wealth, status, class and culture; all stand together and equal before Allah (God).

The rites of Hajj, which go back to the time of Prophet Abraham (PBUH) who built the Ka'bah, are observed over five or six days, beginning on the eighth day of the last month of the year, named Dhul-Hijjah ((month) of pilgrimage). These rites include circumulating the Ka'bah (Tawwaf), and going between the mountains of Safa and Marwah, as Hajjar (Abraham's wife (RA)) did during her search for water for her son Isma'il (PBUH). Then the pilgrims stand together on the wide plain of Arafah and join in prayers for God's forgiveness, in what is often thought of as a preview of the Last Judgment. The pilgrims also cast stones at a stone pillar which represents Satan. The pilgrimage ends with a festival, called Eid al-Adha, which is celebrated with prayers, the sacrifice of an animal for eating, and the exchange of greetings and gifts in Muslim communities every where.

The Hajj is unique as it is the greatest gathering of mankind, that remains unparalleled in any part of the world. Over two million people, men and women of all different races, colors and nationalities come together for the worship of the one Supreme God in complete brotherhood and harmony. The white clothes that are worn during the pilgrimage are symbolic of perfect equality as no one person seems richer than the other. Rich and poor, Arab and non-Arab, black and white all gather together united by their common faith in one God, an ultimate expression of human brotherhood.

Al Quran : Surah Al-Baqarah:173 : “He hath forbidden you only dead meat, and blood, and swineflesh, and that which hath been immolated to (the name of




source





Are you sure it's halal?

"O ye people! Eat of what is on earth, lawful and clean..."(Al-Baqarah:168)

"O ye people! Eat of what is on earth, lawful and clean..."
(Al-Baqarah:168)



Eating in the UK today is much easier than it was a decade or two ago. When I boarded the plane to London in 1990, I sat next to a second year A-level student who briefed me about the various types of Malaysians (students) in the UK. He noted that since there were Malaysians who stayed in boarding schools or halls, eating can pose a big problem. He studied me closely and asked whether I was a 'ngap sayot' - a term used to describe those who ate whatever they could get their hands on due to the darurah situation. I laughed and made it clear to him that I believed darurah situations called for more complicated scenarios.
“He hath forbidden you only dead meat, and blood, and swineflesh, and that which hath been immolated to (the name of) any other than Allah. But he who is driven by necessity, neither craving nor transgressing, it is no sin for him. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful” (Al-Baqarah:173).

A few years later, I was taken aback when I saw my friend chomping on a chicken sandwich she grabbed from a nearby shop and remember thinking, 'Oh no, she's a ngap sayot!' A hundred metres away from us was a kebab shop and another 130 metres or so was a vegetarian outlet. Surely, there were alternatives? Was she driven by necessity?
I was told by another friend who was in a boarding school how he had nonchalantly accepted Toad-in-the-hole for breakfast one morning, without knowing what it was. He was ready to dig in when he realised that the toad was actually pork sausages! Blerghhhhh...! What surprised me was, even when he had realised the food in front of him was not halal, he continued eating until the very last crumb! Would you?

Today, halal restaurants and butchers may be found in almost every city in the UK. In fact, today there are even KFC and Nando restaurants throughout the country which serve halal meat. Yet, some debate over the issue of halalness as may be found here. This problem is in fact worldwide and it all depends on the group of scholars which one might want to follow. Personally, I feel that it is a delicate matter. Seek knowledge and follow throughout. This is what I believe.

When it comes to the issue of Halal-ness, the Muslims are divided. Some take the easy way out, quoting that Islam is simple, it is us humans who complicate it. I recall a friend of mine who had this very interesting theory regarding alcohol. If alcohol is put in the food one cooks (on a stove/fire), it is halal because the alcohol evaporates in the air, thus making it no longer there. Is this so? Would there be neither trace of alcohol nor flavour?
On the other hand, there are some who go through all the trouble to ensure that everything is clean and pure because what we consume will become our flesh and blood. Often, there are lists of ingredients Muslims have to look out for when purchasing produce from the supermarket, especially emulsifiers. And yet, I have seen friends who grab mousses or chocolates from the shelves without the slightest glimpse at the ingredients. Wallahu'alam...

“Forbidden unto you (for food) are carrion and blood and swine-flesh, and that which hath been dedicated unto any other than Allah, and the strangled, and the dead through beating, and the dead through falling from a height, and that which hath been killed by (the goring of) horns, and the devoured of wild beasts, saving that which ye make lawful (by the death-stroke), and that which hath been immolated unto idols. And (forbidden is it) that ye swear by the divining arrows. This is an abomination. This day are those who disbelieve in despair of (ever harming) your religion; so fear them not, fear Me! This day have I perfected your religion for you and completed My favour unto you and have chosen for you as religion Al-Islam. Whoso is forced by hunger, not by will, to sin: (for him) lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful” (Al-Maidah: 3)

Read Quran : each verse is like a date: the more you chew it, ... :



"Verily, each verse is like a date: the more you chew it, the more of its sweetness is released." Abu Sulayman heard this and commented: "True. It is the case with one of you that if he begins one chapter of it, he wants to read it to the end."

['al-Hadith fi 'Ulum al-Qur'an'; p. 70]

The Prophet (saw) said: "Do not speak much without mentioning Allah, for too much speech without mentioning Allah hardens the heart...




The Prophet (saw) said: "Do not speak much without mentioning Allah, for too much speech without mentioning Allah hardens the heart, and the hard hearted are the furthest of all people from Allah Most High." [Tirmidhi]

Hajj in Quran

“Our Lord! And make us submissive unto You and of our offspring a nation submissive unto You, and show us our Manasik (all the ceremonies of pilgrimage - Hajj and Umrah, etc.), and accept our repentance. Truly, You are the One Who accepts repentance, the Most Merciful.” (Quran: 2/128)

Verily! As-Safa and Al-Marwah (two mountains in Makkah) are of the Symbols of Allah. So it is not a sin on him who performs Hajj or Umrah (pilgrimage) of the House (the Kabah at Makkah) to perform the going (Tawaf) between them (As-Safa and Al-Marwah). And whoever does good voluntarily, then verily, Allah is All-Recognizer, All-Knower. (Quran: 2/158)

And perform properly (i.e. all the ceremonies according to the ways of Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h.)), the Hajj and Umrah (i.e. the pilgrimage to Makkah) for Allah. (Quran: 2/196)

The Hajj (pilgrimage) is (in) the well-known (lunar year) months (i.e. the 10th month, the 11th month and the first ten days of the 12th month of the Islamic calendar, i.e. two months and ten days). So, whosoever intends to perform Hajj therein (by assuming Ihram), then he should not have sexual relations (with his wife), nor commit sin, nor dispute unjustly during the Hajj. And whatever good you do, (be sure) Allah knows it. And take a provision (with you) for the journey, but the best provision is At-Taqwa (piety, righteousness, etc.). So fear Me, O men of understanding! (Quran: 2/197)

There is no sin on you if you seek the Bounty of your Lord (during pilgrimage by trading, etc.). Then when you leave Arafat, remember Allah (by glorifying His Praises, i.e. prayers and invocations, etc.) at the Mashar-il-Haram. And remember Him (by invoking Allah for all good, etc.) as He has guided you, and verily, you were, before, of those who were astray. (Quran: 2/198)

And Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah) to the House (Kabah) is a duty that mankind owes to Allah, those who can afford the expenses (for ones conveyance, provision and residence); and whoever disbelieves (i.e. denies Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah), then he is a disbeliever of Allah), then Allah stands not in need of any of the Alameen (mankind and Jinns). (Quran: 3/97)

O you who believe! Kill not game while you are in a state of Ihram for Hajj or Umrah (pilgrimage), and whosoever of you kills it intentionally, the penalty is an offering, brought to the Kabah, of an eatable animal (i.e. sheep, goat, cow, etc.) equivalent to the one he killed, as adjudged by two just men among you; or, for expiation, he should feed poor persons, or its equivalent in fasting, that he may taste the heaviness (punishment) of his deed. Allah has forgiven what is past, but whosoever commits it again, Allah will take retribution from him. And Allah is All-Mighty, All-Able of Retribution. (Quran: 5/95)

Lawful to you is (the pursuit of) water game and its use for food - for the benefit of yourselves and those who travel, but forbidden is (the pursuit of) land game as long as you are in a state of Ihram (for Hajj or Umrah). And fear Allah to Whom you shall be gathered back. (Quran: 5/96)

Allah has made the Kabah, the Sacred House, an asylum of security and Hajj and Umrah (pilgrimage) for mankind, and also the Sacred Month and the animals of offerings and the garlanded (people or animals, etc. marked with the garlands on their necks made from the outer part of the stem of the Makkah trees for their security), that you may know that Allah has knowledge of all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth, and that Allah is the All-Knower of each and everything. (Quran: 5/97)

And proclaim to mankind the Hajj (pilgrimage). They will come to you on foot and on every lean camel; they will come from every deep and distant (wide) mountain highway (to perform Hajj). (Quran: 22/27)

Allah Azza wa Jall mentioned the sacrifice together with the first and foremost worship in Islam: prayer. This is a clear indication of its great importance. Thus, He ordered His Messenger (p.b.u.h.) to slaughter sacrifices by saying: <<…Pray unto your Lord and slaughter (your sacrifice)…" (Quran: 109/2)

Hajj in Sunnah

Narrated Ibn Umar: Allah's Apostle said: “Islam is based on (the following) five (principles): 1. To testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and Muhammad is Allah's Apostle. 2. To offer the (compulsory congregational) prayers dutifully and perfectly. 3. To pay Zakat (i.e. obligatory charity). 4. To perform Hajj. (i.e. Pilgrimage to Mecca) 5. To observe fast during the month of Ramadan.” (Bukhari: Book 2, Hadith 7)

“Sound Hajj has no reward except Paradise” (Bukhari & Muslim)

Narrated Ibn Umar: A man asked the Prophet: "What (kinds of clothes) should a Muhrim (a Muslim intending to perform Umrah or Hajj) wear? He replied, ‘He should not wear a shirt, a turban, trousers, a head cloak or garment scented with saffron or Wars (kinds of perfumes). And if he has n slippers, then he can use Khuffs (leather socks) but the socks should be cut short so as to make the ankles bare.’” (Bukhari: Hadith 615, Vol. 2). (Bukhari: Book 3, Hadith 136)

Allah's Messenger (p.b.u.h.) said, "He who is not prevented from performing the pilgrimage by an obvious necessity, a tyrannical ruler, or a disease which confines him at home, and dies without having performed the pilgrimage, may die if he wishes as a Jew, or if he wishes as a Christian." (Tirmidhi: 2535, Narrated Abu Umamah) (Darimi transmitted it)

"The best days in the world are the Ten days." (The First Ten Days of Dhul-Hijjah) (Ibn Hibban, al-Bazzaar, authenticated in Sahih Jaami us-Sagheer 1133)

"There are no days during which good deeds are more beloved by Allah than these (ten) days." (Bukhari, Tirmidhee and others)

"The day of al-Fitr (i.e. Eid ul-Fitr), the day of an-Nahr, and the days of Tashriq are Eid days for us Muslims. They are days of eating and drinking." (Ahmad, Nasa’i, Sahih ul-Jaami 8192)

Amr Ibn Al-Aas narrates, “When Islam entered my heart, I went to the Messenger of Allah and said: ‘Give me your hand so that I may pledge allegiance to you.’ The Prophet spread his hand, but I withdrew mine. He said, ‘What is wrong Amr?’ I said, ‘I want to make a condition.’ ‘And what is that?’ he said. I said, ‘That Allah will forgive me.’ Then the Messenger of Allah said, ‘Did you not know that Islam wipes out what came before it, and that Hijrah wipes out what came before it and that Hajj wipes out what came before it!’” (Muslim: 121)

Abu Hurairah narrates: “I heard the Prophet say, ‘Whoever performs Hajj and does not commit any Rafath (obscenity) or Fusooq (transgression), he returns (free from sin) as the day his mother bore him’”. (Bukhari)
Aisha (May Allah be pleased with her) asked the Prophet (p.b.u.h.), “We find that Jihad is the best deed, shouldn’t we (women) do jihad?” The Prophet replied, ‘Rather the best Jihad is a Hajj Mabroor!’ Aisha later said, ‘I’ll never cease performing Hajj after I heard that from Rasul Allah’”. (Bukhari and Muslim)

The Prophet (p.b.u.h.) said, “There is no day on which Allah frees more of His slaves from Fire than the Day of Arafat, and He verily draws near, then boasts of them before the angles, saying: ‘What do they seek?’” (Sahih Muslim)
And in another Hadith: “Verily Allah boasts of the people of Arafat before the people of Heaven (angels) saying: ‘Look to my servants who have come to Me disheveled and dusty.’”

Standing at Arafat is one of the greatest pillars of Hajj as stated by the prophet (p.b.u.h.), He said, "Hajj is Arafat." (Ahmad)

Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) said: “I heard the Prophet (p.b.u.h.) say: ‘Whoever does Hajj for the sake of Allah and does not have sexual relations (with his wife), commit sin, or dispute unjustly (during the Hajj), will come back like the day his mother gave birth to him.’” (Bukhaari: 1449, Muslim: 1350)

Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (p.b.u.h) said: “Umrah is an expiation for the time between it and the previous Umrah, and an accepted Hajj has no less a reward than Paradise.” (Bukhaari: 1683, Muslim 1349)

Abdullah Ibn Mas’ood said: “the Messenger of Allah (p.b.u.h) said: ‘Keep on doing Hajj and Umrah, for they eliminate poverty and sin just as the bellows eliminate impurities from iron and gold and silver.’” (Tirmidhi: 810, Nasa’i: 2631)

Ibn Umar reported that the Prophet (p.b.u.h.) said: “The one who fights for the sake of Allah and the pilgrim who goes for Hajj or Umrah are all guests of Allah. He called them and they responded; they ask of Him and He will give them.” (Ibn Majah: 2893)
