[PDF] Freewill, Qadar, and Kasb in the Epistle of Hasan al‐Basri to Abd al‐Malik


Hasan al-Basri said:

Allah has said, “I did not create jinn and humans except to worship Me. I seek no provision from them, nor do I need them to feed Me.” (Quran 51:56-57) Thus He commanded them to worship Him, for which (purpose) He had created them, and Allah is not one to create them for a purpose and then intervene between them and it (to prevent them from fulfilling it), because “He does not wrong His servants.” (Quran 16:118)

[E-book] Silent Moments: The Description of Before & After Death Aspects


The book Silent Moments deals with the science of death, which is the research work of brother Abdul Malik Al-Qasim, a renowned and a pious scholar of the Quran and the Sunnah as well as the Arabic Language. Nowadays, these worthy books are hardly available and due to their being in large volumes, people have no time to get benefit from them. About death and after death, there is a sound creed in Islam and it has been mentioned and discussed many times in the Quran and the Sunnah. In View of its importance, Darussalam has rendered (Silent Moments) into the English language with the prior permission from the author.

 

Abu Hazim said: “Trade of the Hereafter is not sought after, and whatever is left of it, is about to finish! As a result, no part of it, minor or major, will remain.” Whenever the light went out in the house of Hisham bin Abu Abdullah, he would turn around in his bed until his wife brought a light for him. So she asked him why he felt anxious when the light went off and he replied, “When the light goes off, I remember the darkness of the grave.”

 

This is why AI-Mu’tasim used to say when he was dying, “If I knew that my life would be this short, I would not have committed what I committed.”

 

Also, Caliph AI-Muntasir said at the time of death, when he was wished well, “All will happen except being well! Life has gone away and the Hereafter has come.”

 

Ibn Mas’ud ~ once said: “The believer will not attain comfort until he meets ALLAH”

 

Life is Just like a dream that passes as fast as clouds. It is a mere hour of time that soon fades away. It is a journey that has already started and will soon come to an abrupt end.

[E-book] Lying and envying


 

Allah has told us that on the Day of Resurrection nothing would help us except our truthfulness. He will make Kadhib (liar) in speech and· actions the flag by which the hypocrites will be distinguished. Everything that the Lord blames them with has originated within the lying of their speech and actions. So the truth or truthfulness is the mail of Faith, its guide, mount, drive, leader, adornment, and garment. It is the heart and the soul of Faith.

On the other hand, lying is the mail of disbelief and hypocrisy. It is their guide, mount, drive, leader, adornment, garment and heart. The relationship of Kadhib to Faith is like Shirk to Tauhid. Kadhib and Faith can never be together in the same place. If they meet, one of them will push the other out and take its place. Allah has not blessed any person with a blessing after Islam greater than truthfulness. It is actually the life and the survival of Islam. And Allah has never tried a person with something worse than Kadhib. Kadhib is indeed the disease that may spoil the
Faith.

[E-book] Islam and Christianity in the modern world


 

More than a generation has elapsed since Islam and Christianity in the Modern World was first published. This time has served to accentuate the tendencies in Christianity mentioned by the author in his chapter on “Christianity in the Modern World.” Another far-reaching change is the significant increase in the Muslim population of traditionally Christian countries (viz., in Europe and America) through both conversion and migration. The presence of sizable Muslim populations in these countries (notably West Germany,· France, U.K., U.S.A. etc.) has not only brought this two world religions into closer contact in a setting distinctly more favourable to Islam than the encounter with Christianity in the heyday of Western Imperialism and Colonialism, but has also enhanced the possibility of Islam filling the spiritual vacuum which characterises modern Christian Western civilization. Thus the topic of this book is still of contemporary relevance and interest.
