Maghrib Salaah at the Makkah Haram 12 July 2011 – 12 Shaban 1432AH


Makkah Maghrib (Surah Az Zumar 41 -46) Sheikh Ghazzawi
meaning of these ayah – 41. Verily We have revealed the Book to thee in Truth, for [instructing] mankind. He, then, that receives guidance benefits his own soul: but he that strays injures his own soul. Nor art thou set over them to dispose of their affairs.
42. It is Allah that takes the souls [of men] at death; and those that die not [He takes] during their sleep: those on whom He has passed the decree of death, He keeps back [from returning to life], but the rest He sends [to their bodies] for a term appointed verily in this are Signs for those who reflect.
43. What! Do they take for intercessors others besides Allah? Say: “Even if they have no power whatever and no intelligence?”
44. Say: “To Allah belongs exclusively [the right to grant] intercession: to Him belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth: In the End, it is to Him that ye shall be brought back.”

How sahabah reacted to the Prophet(SAW) death

We must reflect on the death of the prophet(SAW). When he passed away Umar(RA) would not believe it and said he would kill anyone that said the prophet (SAW) passed away.

Narrated Abu Salama from Ibn `Abbas : Abu Bakr came out and `Umar , was addressing the people, and Abu Bakr told him to sit down but `Umar refused. Abu Bakr again told him to sit down but `Umar again refused. Then Abu Bakr recited the Tashah-hud (i.e. none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and Muhammad is Allah’s Apostle) and the people attended to Abu Bakr and left `Umar. Abu Bakr said, “Amma ba’du, whoever amongst you worshipped Muhammad, then Muhammad is dead, but whoever worshipped Allah, Allah is alive and will never die. Allah said: ‘Muhammad is no more than an Apostle and indeed (many) Apostles have passed away before him ..(up to the) grateful.’ ” (3.144) (The narrator added, “By Allah, it was as if the people never knew that Allah had revealed this verse before till Abu Bakr recited it and then whoever heard it, started reciting it.”)
5.Quran 3:144 “ Muhammad is no more than an Apostle: many were the Apostles that passed away before him. If he died or were slain will ye then turn back on your heels?”

Virtues of passing away in Makkah or Madinah

Prophet (Allah bless him and grant him peace) said,

“One who intentionally visits me [in his life] will be beside me on the Day of Judgment, and one who settles in Madinah and bears with its trials, I will be a witness, or intercede, for him on the Day of Judgment, and one who dies in one of the two Holy Sanctuaries (Makkah or Madina), Allah will resurrect him amongst those granted safety on the Day of Judgment.” [al-Bayhaqi, Shu’ab al-Iman]

Request from the family of Moulana Yunus Patel 

Moulana Naeem request to restrain themselves and engage in salaah, dua and deal with this in an Islamic manner.

Please people show patience in this tough time.

Spiritual reformation Legacy left behind

All is not lost, Moulana Yunus Patel has left a wealth of knowledge behind and we are fortunate that his spirtual legacy will not be lost as most of it is documented on the website. You can find all his work on his website –

The slogan on Moulana Yunus Patel website – strange is the VISA of life.. it can be cancelled at anytime. The duration of its validity unknown, and its Extension too is impossible.

Talbina – Sunnah cure for grief

For everyone grieving and especially for the family make some talbina –

Aisha (may Allaah be pleased with her) used to recommend Talbina for the sick and for one who is grieving over a dead person. She (may Allaah be pleased with her) used to say, “I heard the Messenger (Sallallaahu ءlayhi Wasallam) saying, ‘The Talbina gives rest to the heart of the patient and makes it active and relieves some of his sorrow and grief.’ ” [Saheeh al-Bukhaaree (5689)]

Aisha (may Allaah be pleased with her) said that whenever one of her relatives died, the women assembled and then dispersed (returned to their homes) except her relatives and close friends. She (may Allaah be pleased with her) would order that a pot of Talbina be cooked. Then Tharid (a dish prepared from meat and bread) would be prepared and the Talbina would be poured on it. Aisha (may Allaah be pleased with her) would say (to the women), “Eat of it, for I heard the Messenger (Sallallaahu ءlayhi Wasallam) saying, ‘The Talbina soothes the heart of the patient and relieves him from some of his sadness.’ ” [Saheeh al-Bukhaaree (5690)].
