After Allah's Messenger (pbuh) was commissioned for Prophet hood, the first thing he was commanded to do by Allah was to pray. The angel Jibra’il (Gabriel) came to him, and a spring of water gushed out from the rocks in front of them. Jibra’il then showed the Prophet (pbuh) how to do ablution. He then showed him how to offer prayers to Allah. The Messenger (pbuh) of Allah began to pray two Raka twice a day; once in the morning and once in the evening. He then went home and showed his wife Khadija R.A. what he had learned from angel Jibra’il. Since that time, the Prophet never went through a day without praying. Just before his migration (Hijra) to Al-Madinah, Allah's Messenger (pbuh) was taken by night to Jerusalem and then to the heavens (Miraj). During this journey, Allah almighty commanded him to pray five times a day. This prayer was a gift given to every believer to enable him to experience a spiritual ascension five times in every day. The Prophet (pbuh) explained that “The prayer is the Miraj of the believer." It gives every Muslim the opportunity to communicate with his Lord.
      During each prayer, the worshipper recites Surah Al Fatiha.

This recitation is not a dull monologue by the believer, but Allah promises that it is a conversation between Him and the worshipper. The Messenger (pbuh) reported that Allah Almighty says:

"When My slave says (in his sprayer): 'All praise is for Allah, the Lord of the worlds', I say: 'My slave has praised Me.' when he says: ' the Merciful, the Compassionate, Master of the Day of Judgment', I say: 'My slave has praised and glorified Me'. When he says: ' You Alone we worship, and Your Aid we seek, ' I say: 'This is between my slave and me.' When he says: 'Show us the Straight Path, the path of those on whom you have bestowed Your Grace, neither of those who earned your anger nor of those who went astray.' I say: 'This is for my slave, and I give my slave what he wants." (Hadith Qudsi)

The numbers of prayers in a day have been set at five by Allah almighty. The believer has no choice in the matter but to obey. To reduce the number of prayers would not only be disobedience, it would also lose the benefits of prayer.

For example, a room is only good fro residence if it has four walls and a roof. If only one wall or the roof were to be removed, what use could it be? Similarly, the prayer will only achieve its purpose and be of use on the Day when nothing except one's deeds will be of use, if it is observed in the prescribed manner.
 Let Us Pray

Allah's Messenger (pbuh) once said:

"Prayer is the pillar of religion."
The Prophet (pbuh) also said:

"Islam is erected on five pillars: to testify that there is no God but Allah and that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger; to establish prayer; to pay Zakat; to perform Hajj to the Sacred House, and to fast in the month of Ramadan." (Bukhari, Muslim)

This Hadith makes the image very clear. Islam is like a building, supported by five columns. Remove just one column, and the entire building weakens.

If strong winds batter the town, the building which will certainly collapse is the one with a pillar missing. In the same way, when a person stops praying, his Faith becomes weak and the mildest of blows can cause it to crumble.

The prayer is of such vital importance that the Prophet (pbuh) said: "Verily, between men and between polytheism and unbelief is the negligence of prayer." (Muslim)

How true is this statement! If you look at people walking down the road, it may be difficult to distinguish Muslims from non-Muslims. Islam is not marked upon a believer's forehead, and neither is Kufr stamped on an infidel's face. But at the time of prayer, you can separate the two groups with ease. The believer will abandon his work, his business to join the rows of Muslims in prayer, while the disbeliever will carry on with his worldly affairs.

Surah Al-Muddathir narrates an interesting dialogue which will take place on the Day of Judgment. The believers will ask the people of Hell-fire:

    "What has caused you to enter Hell?" They will say: "We were not of those who used to offer their prayers. Nor we used to feed the poor; and we used to talk falsehoods (all that which Allah hated) with vain talkers, and we used to belie the Day of Recompense. Until there came to use (the death) that is certain." (72:42-47)

The rejecters of truth are silent in this world, but in the next world they will themselves speak the truth.

Prayer Is Just As Obligenatory For Women as it is For Men

Islam for Muslims is not only a religion but a complete way of life that advocates peace, mercy and forgiveness. A Muslim can be defined as a person who accepts the Islamic way of life and complies with the will of Allah (God) without question.

"The Great and Glorious Allah does not insist upon the performance
Of any other devotion as He does on the performance of Salat."
---Hazrat Khwaja Gharib Nawaz

A child born into a Muslim family begins his life hearing the Adhan in his right ear and the Iqamah in his left ear. From his childhood, he should be taught the importance and method of prayer.

Fit rah: What is fit rah?

Our Creator has granted each one of us a guiding light -- a pure, undefiled innate nature called the fit rah. Unlike Christians who believe in the doctrine of Original Sin and assert that each baby is born tainted with the sin of Adam’s disobedience to God, Muslims believe that every child is born into a state of purity where it recognizes its Creator and is naturally subservient to His laws.

Just as a child’s body submits to the physical laws which Allah has put in nature, its soul also submits naturally to the fact that Allah is its Lord and Creator. But its parents try to make it follow their own way and the child is not strong enough in the early stages of its life to resist or oppose its parents. The religion which the child follows at this stage is one of custom and upbringing and Allah does not hold it to account for this religion.

When the child matures in youth and clear proofs of the falsehood of its religion are brought to it, the adult must now follow the religion of knowledge and reason. At this point the devils try their best to encourage him to stay as he is or to go further astray. Evils are made pleasing to him and he must now live in the midst of a struggle between his innate pure nature and his desires in order to find the right road.

If he chooses to follow his innate nature, his fit rah, Allah will help him overcome his desires even though it may take most of his life to escape, for many people enter Islam In old age.

The Qur'an also points to this phenomenon, where every soul that has been created is asked who their Lord is, and they testify that it is none other than Allah before they are born into the world.

When your Lord drew forth from the loins of the children of Adam their descendants and made them testify concerning them. Saying: Am I not your Lord? They said: “Yes, we testify to it.” (This) in case you say on the Day of Judgment, “We were unaware of this.” Or in case you say: It was our ancestors who made partners (with Allah) and we are only their descendants… [Surah Al-Araf 7:172-173]

Explaining this verse, the Prophet [SAW] said: When Allah created Adam [AS] , He took a covenant from him …then He extracted from him all of his descendants who would be born until the end of the world, generation after generation and spread them out in front of Him in order to take a covenant from them.

[26:83-87] "My Lord, grant me wisdom, and include me with the righteous. Let the example I set for the future generations be a good one. Make me one of the inheritors of the blissful Paradise... And do not forsake me on the Day of Resurrection."

Prayer is just as obligenatory for women as it is for men. It is recommended that women should pray at home, but if they wish to attend the mosque for any obligatory prayer, they should not be prevented from doing so.

Abdullah bin Umar R.A. once quoted this saying of the Prophet (pbuh) to his son: "If your wife asks permission to go to the mosque you should not stop her." His son Bilal replied: "By Allah, we will stop them." Abdullah was so displeased at this that he criticized his son in strong terms, adding: "I quote to you what Allah's Messenger (pbuh) has said and you say 'we will stop them'.


(Some Hadith on prayer)

1. Abu Huraira R.A. narrated that Allah's Messenger (pbuh) said:

"Just see, can anything of his filthiness remain on the body of anyone of you if there were a river at his door in which he washed himself five times daily?" They said, "Nothing of his filthiness will remain (on his body)." He said, "That is like the five prayers by which Allah obliterates sins." (Bukhari, Muslim)

2. Abu Huraira R.A. narrated that Allah's Messenger (pbuh) said:

"Five (daily) prayers and from one Friday prayer to the (next) Friday prayer, and from Ramadan to Ramadan are expiations for the (sins) committed in between (their intervals) provided one shuns the major sins."

3. Rabia bin Ka`b narrated:

I was with Allah's Messenger (pbuh) one night, and I brought him water and what he required. He said to me: "Ask (anything you like)." I said, "I ask your company in Paradise." He said, "Or anything else besides it?" I said, "That is all what I require." He said, "Then helps me to achieve this for you by devoting yourself often to prostration." (Muslim)

4. Abu Dharr narrated that Allah's Messenger (pbuh) came out in winter when the leaves were falling. He took hold of a branch (and shook it) and its leaves started falling. Then he said:

"O Abu Dharr!" I said, "Labbaik, O Messenger of Allah!" He said, "Whenever a Muslim prays seeking the Pleasure of Allah, his sins start falling like the leaves of this tree." (Ahmad)

5. 'Uqbah bin Amir narrated that the Prophet (pbuh) said:

"Your Lord is amazed by that shepherd who is at the top of a mountain (with his sheep) and who calls for prayer and then offer his prayers. Allah Almighty says: Look at this slave of mine who calls for prayer, then says Iqamah for the prayer, and then prays as he is fearful of me. I have forgiven my slave and admitted him to Paradise.”


A child born into a Muslim family begins his life hearing the Adhan in his right ear and the Iqamah in his left ear. From his childhood, he should be taught the importance and method of prayer.

'Abdullah bin Amr bin Aas narrated that Allah's Messenger said: "Command your children to pray when they reach the age of seven and admonish them by beating (if they don't pray) at the age of ten. And keep them (i.e. boys and girls) apart in their beds."

The first thing the Prophet used to teach a new Muslim was the prayer.

Praying involves physical movements of standing, bowing and prostration. During illness, prayers can be performed sitting up or lying down, providing that the chair or bed is facing Mecca. A person is exempt from prayer if seriously ill;

[2:286] "Our Lord, do not condemn us if we forget or make mistakes. Our Lord, and protect us from blaspheming against You, like those before us have done. Our Lord, protect us from sinning until it becomes too late for us to repent. Pardon us and forgive us. You are our Lord and Master. Grant us victory over the disbelieving people."

Prayer is Judged and Based On Action

Bismillah ir-Rahman ir-Rahim 

Man is created rather weak, yet everything involves, affects and saddens him. Also he is utterly lacking in power, yet the calamities and enemies that afflict him are numerous. He is also extremely poor and has many needs. In addition, he is indolent and incapable, yet the burden of life is very heavy. Being a human being, he is connected with the rest of the world, yet the vanishing of the things he loves and with which he is familiar, and the grief that this can cause, repeatedly hurt him. Finally, his mentality and senses inspire him toward glorious objectives and point him to eternal gains, but he is unable, impatient, powerless, and has rather a short life time.

"In God alone, essence (what He is) and existence (that he is) coincide."
Ibn Sina (Avicenna)

Prayer is judged based on action as this is what a person can control. Of course a person's mind should be focused on what they are doing especially when it is worship.

The position of all four madhaahib–Maalikis, Shadflies, Hannibal’s, and Hanafis–with no difference of opinion–is that a person who does not pray, ever, is not a Muslim.

However, Allah is the most Merciful and is fully aware that Shaitan will try and discourage you from praying and therefore he will use all types of distraction.

Therefore a person should stick to their actions as this means you are worshipping Allah even though your desires are telling you otherwise, and InshaAllah you will be rewarded for your patience.

Slowly, these distractions will start to go away and one will obtain satisfaction, so one must not give up.

Fajr Salah.
Thus, it can be clearly understood how essential it is for a spirit in this state at the time of Fajr—the early morning—to present a petition, through prayer and supplication, to the Court of an All-Powerful One of Majesty, an All-Compassionate One of Grace. Man must seek success and help from Him. How necessary a point of support it is so that he can bear and endure the troubles and burdens that he might face in daytime.

End of the day.

After a long and hectic day at work, how difficult it is for a tired person to stand on the prayer-mat and concentrate on his prayers to Allah Almighty. Snuggled in a warm and cozy bed, how difficult it is to get up at the call of Mu'adhin: "Come to prayer, come to success." The famous doctor and philosopher Ibn Sina (Avicenna), recalls such a moment in his life.
Once in a very cold and icy night, he and his slave were resting in an inn in a remote part of Khurasan. During the night he felt thirsty and shouted out to his slave to get him some water. The salve had no desire to leave his warm bed, so he pretended not to hear Avicenna's call. But finally after repeated calls he reluctantly got up and went to fetch the water. A little while later, the melodious sound of the Adhan filled the air. Avicenna began to think about the person calling the believers to prayer. My slave Abdullah, he mused, has always respected and admired me. He seizes any opportunity to lavish praise and affection on me but tonight, he preferred his own comfort to my needs. On the other hand, look at this Persian slave of Allah. He left his warm bed to go out in the chilly night, he made ablution in the icy water of the stream, and then he ascended the high minaret of the mosque to glorify He Whom he truly serves.

"I bear witness that there is none to be worshipped except Allah." "I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah."

Tonight, Avicenna records; I learned the essence of true love; that love which results in complete obedience. The love of Allah demands total and unconditional obedience.

Allah almighty says:

    "Say (O Muhammad (pbuh) to mankind): 'If you (really) love Allah then follow me (i.e. accept Islamic monotheism, follow the Quran and the Sunnah), Allah will love you and forgive you your sins.' And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." (3:31)


His arrogance and pride has often led man to behave as an oppressor and a tyrant. Some men have been so carried away by their own self-importance that they have even claimed divinity. Pharaoh (Firaun), the ruler of Egypt, was among those who announced:

"I am your supreme lord."

With his sense of greatness and pride, Firaun subjugated the Israelites and made their lives wretched and miserable.

But is man really as strong and great as his ego tells him? The Quran tells us the reality of man's nature.

    "Allah is He who created you in (a state of) weakness, then gave you strength after weakness, then after strength gave (you) weakness and gray hair. He creates what He wills. And it is He Who is the All-Knowing, the All-Powerful (i.e. Able to do all things)." (30:54)

Weakness in the beginning and weakness in the end: this is the essence of man. He is so weak and helpless at birth that his entire existence depends on his parents and family. If he were to be abandoned in these crucial first years, he could not survive on his own. He needs a gentle and loving hand, not only in his infancy but in his childhood and even in the teenage years.

As this child enters the years of youth and independence, he begins to take control of his own life. He looks with pride at his strong physique, his handsome features and his many talents. He begins to despise those of lesser abilities, even scorning those parents who exhausted their own health to nurture him. He becomes unjust and cruel, using his strength and vigor to dominate others. He thinks he is a master, free to act as he wills. But does this youth, these good looks and this strength last forever? Only in a few decades he begins to lose his strength. His health begins to deteriorate, gray hair covers his head and slowly, his youth is replaced by old age. This transformation from young to old is slow, but it is there. The seconds of time are ticking away mercilessly, taking every young person towards their old age. The young dictator will one day be as feeble and weak as the day he was born. But this time there will be no parents to nurture him; if, as is often the case, he is rejected by his own family, his future will be a desolate one in some persons' home.

"Weakness in the beginning and weakness in the end: this is the essence of man.
The message is clear: the real Master is Allah. He alone is Mighty, He Alone is great.

He alone is never tired, never needs rest, and is never dependent upon anyone.

Allahu Akbar!
Allahu Akbar!
Allahu Akbar - Allah is the Greatest.
God is knowledge; he is knowing; and he is being known. Since God has knowledge of his own essence, and since God is one, it follows that the essence of God is knowledge. And knowledge means that he knows himself, and is known by himself.
- Ibn Sina, "al-Risalat al-Arshiya”
We shall each be rewarded according to what is in our heart and how we act in the world.

With this message clear in his mind, man realizes that he should show his humility to the Almighty Lord, the One Who created him. And what can be a better way to show one's humility than to stand like a slave before Him; to bow and prostrate to Him; to raise hands in supplication to Him.

Prayer is not a burden forced upon man but is the inner cry of every soul. Each heart cries to recognize its Creator. It is but a small token of gratitude for all the innumerable bounties bestowed upon mankind by the Creator.

In our everyday lives, we smile and say a warm thank-you to the small acts of kindness which others do for us. so what about thanking Allah, Who in His infinite Mercy has provided for every single one of our needs. Just observe the beauty and perfection of the earth around you, and fall down in gratitude to you Lord.

Glory be to You. We have no knowledge save what You have taught us. Surely You are the All-Knowing, the All-Wise.

O God! Bestow blessings and peace upon the one You sent as a teacher to Your servants to instruct them in knowledge of You and worship of You, and to make known the treasures of Your Names, the interpreter of the signs or verses of Your Book of the Universe, and a mirror, through his worship, to the Grace of Your Lordship, and upon all his family and Companions, and have mercy on us and all believing men and women. Amen. For the sake of Your Compassion, O Most Compassionate of the compassionate!
May Allah (Subhanahu WA Tala) give spouse of their choice to dear sisters and brothers in Islam? Ameen.

“And I did not create man...except to worship Me Alone” (Quran 51:56)

In the name of Allah, The Beneficent,
The Merciful and Compassionate.

All praise is to Allah, Lord of the worlds. And all blessings and peace to Muhammad saw, his family, and companions.

For Muslims prayer is a set of ritual movements and words performed at fixed times, five times per day.  God says in Quran, “Verily, the prayer is enjoined on the believers at fixed hours”.  (Quran 4:103)  Muslims pray in the early morning before sunrise, in the middle of the day, in the afternoon, at sunset and at night.  Muslims pray in obedience to God because they believe God created humankind for no other purpose except to worship Him.

“And I did not create man...except to worship Me Alone” (Quran 51:56)

Consequently, for a believer, worship is a way of life.  Prayer at fixed times  serves as a reminder of why we are here and helps to direct a person’s thoughts and actions away from sin and onto remembrance of God.  Prophet Muhammad emphasised the importance of prayer when he explained its ability to remove sin.  He said, “What would you think if there was a river by the door of any one of you and he bathed in it five times a day, would there be any trace of dirt left on him?”  They said, “No trace of dirt would be left on him.”  He said, “That is like the five daily prayers, with it God erases sin.”

The Holy Qur'an says, "Then woe to those prayer performers. Who are heedless of their prayers (Part 30, Surah Ma-oon, verse 4-5)

The Importance of Praying to Allah swt. In Islam

 Muslims do not believe in the concept of "vicarious atonement" but rather believe in the law of personal responsibility. Islam teaches that each person is responsible for his or her own actions. On the Day of Judgment Muslims believe that every person will be resurrected and will have to answer to God for their every word, thought, and deed. Consequently, a practicing Muslim is always striving to be righteous.

It will be a major sin to leave Salah all together. It is also a sin to allow a prayer not to be prayed in its time. However, whilst the prayer is still in its time it may be prayed at any time that is convenient for you.

However one should be mindful not to delay Asr Salah right till the end time. Maghrib Salah also should not be delayed as the Messenger has emphasized that it be prayed quickly. Isha Salah should not be delayed to the passing of half the night.

Let me present some Noble Verses from the Noble Quran regarding this issue:

"What led you into Hell-Fire? They will say; 'We were not of those who prayed;' (The Noble Quran, 74:42-43)"

"So woe to the worshippers who are neglectful of their Prayers, those who (want but) to be seen (of men). (The Noble Quran, 107:4-6)"

Hypocrites (Munafiq) were very lazy about their prayers. That is because they had apparently accepted Islam but did not believe in Allah Ta'ala or the day of judgement in their hearts. There was no importance given to prayer by them, if they prayed, they prayed. If they missed it, it was no big deal to them. If they prayed they were not expecting any reward for it. If they missed it there was no fear of any reprisal or punishment. If they were amongst people they would pray. If they were on their own they would not bother, or would not pray it at the correct times. They would sit around swapping stories, and when the time would almost be up, they would stand, move up and down quickly a few times and claim that they had prayed. They would not pray with the sincerity or humility that it should be prayed with. They would never truly busy themselves in worship or the remembrance of Allah Ta'ala.

"Enjoin prayer on thy people, and be constant therein. We ask thee not to provide sustenance: We provide it for thee. But the (fruit of) the Hereafter is for Righteousness. (The Noble Quran, 20:132)"

"The hypocrites--they think they are over-reaching Allah but He will over-reach them: When they stand up to Prayer, they stand without earnestness, to be seen of men, but little do they hold Allah in remembrance. (The Noble Quran, 4:142)"

"Their eyes will be cast down--ignominy will cover them; seeing that they had been summoned aforetime to bow in adoration, while they were whole (and had refused). (The Noble Quran, 68:43)"

"So he gave nothing in charity, nor did he pray! (The Noble Quran, 75:31)"

"And when it is said to them, 'Prostrate yourselves!' they do not so.  Ah woe, that Day, to the rejecters of Truth! (The Noble Quran, 77:48-49)"

 It is related by Abu Hurairah (R.A.) that (once) the Apostle of Allah (Sallallaahu alaihi Wasallam) was sitting to one side in the mosque that a man came in and offered his Salah (Prayer). Afterwards, he came to the holy Prophet (SAW) and paid his respects to him. The Holy Prophet (SAW) returned the salutation and remarked: "Go and offer the Salah (Prayer) again. You have not said it properly." He went back and said the prayers again and returned to the Holy Prophet (SAW), and paid his respects. The Holy Prophet (SAW), returning the salutation, once again remarked: "Go and offer the Salah (Prayer) again. You have not said it properly". After offering Salah (Namaaz, Prayer) for the third (and the fourth) time, the man said to the Holy Prophet (SAW): "Sir, tell me how to offer Salah (Prayer)". The Holy Prophet (SAW) replied: "When you decide to offer Salah (Namaaz (Prayer), first perform Wudu thoroughly and well, then turn to Qiblah, then begin the Salah (Prayer), after uttering Takbir-i-Tahrima. After it recite some part of the Holy Qur’an. Which you know by heart and can recite easily. (In other Traditions relating to the same incident it is stated that the Apostle of Allah (SAW) told the questioner, specifically, to recite Surah- Fatiha and whatever he liked, in addition to it). Then after the recital, perform Ruku till you are still and at ease in Ruku. Then, arise from Ruku till you stand erect. Then, perform the Sajadah till you are still and at ease in Sajadah. Then arise till you sit up comfortably. (According to another narrator, the Holy Prophet (SAW), instead of it, said: "Then arise till you stand erect). Then, do like that throughout the Salah (Prayer) (i.e., in every Ruku, Sujud, Qauma and Jalsa in a calm and collected manner)." (Bukhari and Muslim)

The incident mentioned above related to Hadrat Khalid bin Rafah (RA), the brother of the well-known Sahabi, Khalid bin Rafah (RA) had offered up two Rak’ah of Salah (Namaaz, Prayer) in the Holy Prophet’s (SAW) mosque but some other commentators suggest that these Rak’ah were of Tahiyyat-ul-Masjid which Hadrat Khalid (RA), had said rather hurriedly, and upon it, he was reproached by the Holy Prophet (SAW) and told to offer them up again.

It shows that the Holy Prophet (SAW) did not plainly tell Hadrat Khalid bin Rafah (RA), at the first time, what was wrong with his Salah, Prayer) and how it was to be said correctly but at the third or fourth time, and, then, at his own request. It was, probably, for the simple reason that a lesson imparted in such a manner suffices for a lifetime and gets talked about among others as well.

The practical teaching imparted in the above Tradition is that Salah, Prayer) should be offered up in a calm and composed manner and if it is offered hurriedly and without making the necessary pauses and carrying out the various acts properly it be as good as unsaid.

“The Sunna prayers after the obligatory prayers were legislated to make up for the deficiency in the obligatory prayer, and the Sunna prayers before the obligatory prayers are to cut the Devil from his greed.”

 “Worldly concerns lead to forgetting the remembrance of Allah Most High and …attaining the fruits of devotion perpetuating the animal aspect of human nature and confounding his angelic aspect.

It was therefore necessary to legislate something to polish [his heart] before the obligatory prayers so that they could be entered into with a purity of heart and concentration of spiritual ambition.

How often it is that a person does not pray such that he attains unto the benefits of the prayer. This is what was indicated by the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) when he said, ‘How many a worshipper has no share from his prayer except a half of it, or a third of it, or a quarter of it.’.

It was therefore necessary to legislate prayers after it as well to complete the purpose

‘Aisha’ (Allah be pleased with her) also said ‘The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) was not more diligent about performing any supererogatory prayer more than the two [Sunna] rakaats of the Morning Prayer’ [Bukhari & Muslim]. 

Why did Allah Almighty allow praying in the public?

Allah Almighty loves to see unity and brotherhood among the Muslims. He loves to see us stand in organized lines to worship Him. He doesn't like individualism, because it helps Satan to isolate his prey. It also equalizes between all races.

When Muslims pray together they stand shoulder to shoulder. Their proximity to each other demonstrates unity.  No one person is better than another except by his or her piety.

Kings stand next to the poor, the white stand next to the black, Arabs stand beside Europeans.

Praying in Islam is very important. It should come as the first priority in our daily lives. Allah Almighty created His Servants to Worship Him only. True believers should perform prayers regularly.

It Only Takes One Hour.

Importance of Praying to Allah Almighty in Islam.  Praying in Islam can not be compromised. It has to be the first priority in our daily lives. My dear brothers and sisters, it only takes 2-5 minutes to wash our (hands, mouths, noses, faces, arms, necks, ears, hairs and feet) which is mandatory before every prayer unless you don't output gas from your body, then you can only wash yourself once if you never output gas after that, and 2-5 minutes to perform the actual prayer. So in other words, it takes a maximum of 1 hour to perform prayer everyday. Many of us spend long hours everyday at the gym trying to stretch and workout, while we can perform all of that in praying.

In the name of Allah the Beneficent, the Merciful.
Praise be to the Lord of the Universe who has created us and made us into tribes and nations That we may know each other, not that we may despise each other.
If the enemy inclines towards peace, do thou also incline towards peace, and trust God, for the Lord is the one that hearth and knoweth all things.
And the servants of God,
Most gracious are those who walk on the Earth in humility, and when we address them, we say "PEACE."

However, for those few minutes the believer was alone with God.  Whether he or she was praying alone or within a congregation, the connection was between God and the individual.  It was a moment of bliss, peace, and tranquillity.  Prayer is a reminder and a comfort.  Every hour of every day somewhere in the world, a Muslim is praying.  The believer is seeking the comfort that comes from feeling close to God andthe peace that comes from feeling God’s love and mercy.

-Go easy on yourself, for all affairs are determined by Allah’s decree.

Muslims do not believe in the concept of "vicarious atonement" but rather believe in the law of personal responsibility. Islam teaches that each person is responsible for his or her own actions. On the Day of Judgment Muslims believe that every person will be resurrected and will have to answer to God for their every word, thought, and deed. Consequently, a practicing Muslim is always striving to be righteous.

“The great Imam ash-Shafi’, he went to his teacher Waki`
Complaining about the weakness of his memory.
He told him, ‘abandon rebellion, for knowledge is a light
And the light of Allah is not bestowed upon a rebel.”

Marriage (Nikah) is a solemn and sacred social contract between bride and groom. This contract is a strong covenant (muttaqoon Ghalithun) as expressed in Quran 4:21). The marriage contract in Islam is not a sacrament. It is revocable.

Both parties mutually agree and enter into this contract. Both bride and groom have the liberty to define various terms and conditions of their liking and make them a part of this contract.

The company of a good friend is like an owner of musk; if you don’t buy anything, you will get the smell of it.
The company of a bad friend is like the blacksmith’s bellows; if you are not affected by its black dirt, you will be touched by its smoke.
.............–Prophet Muhammad (saw).

Nikah is a great bounty from Allah Ta’aala. The affairs of this world and the hereafter are put in order through marriage. There is a lot of wisdom and many benefits in marriage. A person saves himself from sinning and his heart is put at ease. He does not have any evil intentions and his thoughts do not begin to wander and stray. The greatest virtue is that there are only benefits and only rewards in this. This is because a husband and wife’s sitting together and engaging in a loving conversation, joking with each other, etc. is better than nafl Salat.

The Prophet (saw.) was once asked, "What is more important than prayer?" He replied, "The spirit of prayer" - the spirit that animates the prayer. He was asked what is more important than fasting - he replied, the spirit of fasting. For each question concerning an Islamic practice the answer was the same - because the spirit brings the action to life and unfolds its potentials. Without this animating spirit, the prayer is only movement, and the fasting only hunger. But when spirit enters, when a pure and concentrated intention enters, the action is transformed - the prayer gains the potential to become a mirage (an elevating spiritual journey), and the one fasting approaches towards the potential to witness Laylat ul Qadr (the night of destiny - a night when blessings from the spiritual world descend to this world).

So what is more important than marriage? It is the spirit of marriage, the intention which underlies it, the treasures which it contains hidden within it but which must be brought out and realized by the married couple themselves.

The Qur’an provides the signposts and way marks for learning about this potential. It says:

"It is He who created you from a single soul, And made its mate of like nature in order that you might dwell with her in love...."(7:189) So the male and female complete each other - together they make a single self and this is how they must strive to make their lives together - as if they are one being, one person, one spirit.

The Qur'an says: "Your wives are a garment for you, and you are a garment for them." (2:187) So a husband and wife complete each other - each one takes on a new aspect of their humanity, a new facet and depth to their personality by entering into marriage and this is symbolized in this verse. Garments also conceal the body and protect the wearer so that a husband and wife are each other's protectors and helpers and each of them safeguards their partner's honor shaping the state of marriage into a haven and a sanctuary where each should feel safe and secure, sheltered in one another's care and guardianship.

The Qur’an also says "And of everything we created a pair that happily you may remember." (Qur'an 51:49) The word for spouse, "zawj", (this is the word that is used in the marriage ceremony, the Nikah ceremony) - the word zawj literally means one part of a pair - and when the pair come together and act in concert with one another, then concealed potentials within them, potentials that were impossible to realize while they were apart make themselves evident. This is true throughout creation. And human marriage in the Qur'an is considered a reflection of a nature and tendency that exists at all levels of creation. When something is created as one part of a pair it is clearly incomplete without the other - as the Qur'an states, "He himself created the pair, male and female." (Qur'an 53:45)
Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) said:

"There are three whom Allah must help: the Mujaahid in the path of Allah, the reporter (of a message) who wishes to discharge his responsibility and the one seeking marriage in order to guard his modesty."

1- The Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) said:

`O young people! Whoever among you can support a wife should marry, for that is more modest for the gaze and safer for your private parts.'

(Sahih Muslim, Sahih Bukhari)

2-Anas bin Malik:

“A group of three men came to the houses of the wives of the Prophet asking how the Prophet worshipped (Allah), and when they were informed about that, they considered their worship insufficient and said, "Where we are from the Prophet as his past and future sins have been forgiven." Then one of them said, "I will offer the prayer throughout the night forever." The other said, "I will fast throughout the year and will not break my fast." The third said, "I will keep away from the women and will not marry forever." Allah's Apostle came to them and said, "Are you the same people who said so-and-so? By Allah, I am more submissive to Allah and more afraid of Him than you; yet I fast and break my fast, I do sleep and I also marry women. So he who does not follow my tradition in religion, is not from me (not one of my followers)."

(Sahih Bukhari, Sahih Muslim)

3- The Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) said:

"When a man marries, he has fulfilled half of his religion, so let him fear Allah regarding the remaining half."

4- The Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) said:

"A man marries a woman for four reasons: for her property, for her rank, for her beauty, and for her religion (and character). So marry the one who is best in the religion and character and prosper".

(Bukhari and Muslim)

5- The Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) said:

“Nikah (marriage) is my Sunna. He who shuns my Sunna is not of me.”


6- 'Uthman (b.'Affan) R.A. reported it directly from Allah's Apostle (peace and blessings be upon him) that he said:

“A Muhrim should neither marry (in that state) nor make the proposal of marriage.”


7- The Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) said:

When Musa alayhi salaam fled from Egypt and arrived in median... he was distraught... he had nothing... no money... no family... no acquaintances... no place to stay... and NO WIFE

The made the following du’aa:

"Rabbi, inni ilaa ma anzaltahu ila ya min Khairun faqeer."

"O My Lord, i am in great need of that which you have sent down for me of good."

Now, granted, the mufassiroon have explained that he made this du’aa to Allah because he was hungry and in great need... really basic needs... and it doesn’t seem like he was asking for a wife... however, right thereafter, one of the two girls whom he had drawn water from the well for came and told him that her father was inviting him. So he went and the father hired him to work for him and married one of his daughters to him. And so Allah gave Him the good that He had sent down for him... and even more than what he was originally seeking!!

In addition, I recommend in general that you begin praying tahajjud, even if just a little bit, and ask Allah in the last third of the night to help you get married. And also make du’aa to him in your sujud and take advantage of the times when du’aa is answered such as sujud and between the adhan and the Iqamah. Make sincere du’aa from your heart; ask Allah with His Beautiful Names and His Lofty Attributes. Follow the etiquettes of du’aa such as praising and extolling Allah and sending Salah upon His Messenger sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam.

"Go easy on yourself, for all affairs are determined by Allah’s decree. If something is meant to go elsewhere, it will NEVER come your way, but if it is yours by destiny, from you it CANNOT flee" ['Umar bin al Khattab] (R.A.).

May your vows and this marriage be blessed?

May it be sweet milk?
this marriage, sweet drink and halvah.

May this marriage offer fruit and shade?
Like the date palm.

May this marriage be full of laughter?
your every day a day in paradise.

May this marriage be a sign of compassion?
a seal of happiness here and hereafter.

May this marriage have a fair face and a good name, an omen as welcome as the moon in a clear evening sky....

May spirit enter and mingle in this marriage.
- Rumi.

May Allah (Subhanahu WA Tala) give spouse of their choice to dear sisters and brothers in Islam? Ameen.

May Allah make our efforts sincere and keep us all on the straight path...........

Allah, The Sublime, Who Has Created Us Understands Our Frail Nature

Perfect Example Of Moderation To His Followers

Moderation in religion means following the example of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). Exaggeration means trying to do more than he did, and negligence means not reaching that level.

Muhammad (Salla Allah Alai Wasallam) was a perfect example of moderation to his followers and whole humanity in every walk of life. He advised them to spend within their means, neither to be so lavish as to make them destitute, nor to hold back their wealth from those who had a claim on their resources.

"Do not hold back altogether out of miserliness and render yourselves blame worthy, nor spend without restraint and exhaust your wealth, thus becoming yourself destitute"(17:29).

He gave mankind the golden rule of moderation between the two extremes of lavish expenditure and miserliness. He taught, by his own example, the same rule of moderation in eating, in dressing, in worship etc.

Abdullah bin Umar al-Aas said that once he decided to engage himself in worship all the time, to fast during the day and to read the Quran during whole night. His father married him to a young woman. Once his father asked his wife about him, and she replied; "He is a very pious man and never comes to his bed for sleep nor keep any relationship with anyone." His father became very angry with him and said that he had married him to a very gentle woman and that he had kept her in suspense all this time. But in his enthusiasm for worship, he did not take notice of this.

His father complained to God s' messenger Muhammad (Salla Allah Alai Wasallam), who said to him,” I have heard that you fast during the day and pray all night. Then, God s' messenger said ,"Don't do that, but instead fast sometimes and eat sometimes; pray during the night and sleep as well, for your body has a claim on you; your eyes have a claim on you; lack of sleep will weaken them; your wife and children and relatives have a claim on you too.

We can easily understand how Muhammad (Salla Allah Alai Wasallam) preached moderation and surely he was himself a perfect example for that.

For example, a man says, “I want to spend all night in prayer (Qiyam al-layl), and never sleep all my life, because prayer is one of the best acts of worship, so I want to spend the entire night in prayer.” We say, this is going to extremes in the religion of Allah, and this is not right. Something like this happened at the time of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), when a group of men got together and one of them said, “I will pray at night and never sleep.” Another said, “I will fast and never break my fast.” The third one said, “I will never marry women.” News of that reached the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and he said, “What is wrong with people who say such and such? I fast and I break my fast. I sleep, and I marry women. Whoever overlooks my Sunnah does not belong to me.” These people had gone to extremes in religion, and so the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) disowned them, because they overlooked his Sunnah which includes fasting and not fasting, praying at night and sleeping, and marrying women.

 The one who is falling short is one who says, “I do not need to do voluntary (nafil) actions, so I will not do them. I will only do the fard actions. He may even be falling short in the fard actions, so this person is lacking.

 The moderate person is one who follows the path of the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and his rightly-guided successors (al-Khulafa’ al-Rashidon).

 This hadith teaches us something very significant about our human nature.

Allah, the Sublime, who has created us understands our frail nature and does not impose on us a greater burden than that which we can bear.

Here is another example: three men are faced with an immoral man. One of them says, “I will not greet this immoral man and I will boycott him, keep away from him and not speak to him.”

 The second one says, “I will go with this immoral man, greet him and smile at him. I will invite him to my place and accept his invitation. He is just like any righteous man to me.”

 The third one says, “I hate this but I love him for his faith. I will not boycott him unless doing so is in his best interests. If there is nothing to be gained by boycotting him, and if that will only increase him in his immorality, then I will not boycott him.”

 We say that the first man is going to extremes, the second is negligent and the third is moderate.

 The same applies to all other acts of worship and dealings with others. People vary between extremism, negligence and moderation.

 A third example: A man is a prisoner of his wife, who directs him as she wishes and he does not stop her from committing sin, or urge her to do good. She has taken over his reason and has become the one who is in charge of him.

 Another man treats his wife in a harsh, arrogant and high-handed manner. He does not care about her and regards her as less than a servant.

 A third man is moderate in his dealings with his wife, as Allah and His Messenger commanded.

“And they (women) have rights (over their husbands as regards living expenses) similar (to those of their husbands) over them (as regards obedience and respect) to what is reasonable”

[Al-Baqarah 2:228 – interpretation of the meaning]

 [The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:] “Let no believing man hate a believing woman. If he dislikes one of her characteristics he will be pleased with another.”

 This last man is the one who is moderate. The second one is extreme in his dealings with his wife, and the first is falling short.

 The same applies to all other deeds and acts of worship.

The Glorious Quran repeatedly exhorts Muslims to follow the path of moderation (ummatan wasatan), and censures these whose disposition is towards excesses in acts of devotion.  For this tendency: results in unnecessary hardships for human beings.  Allah’s commands in this regard are very explicit:

Allah desires ease for you, and he does not desire hardship for you.

(Surah al-Baqarah; 2:185)

Allah desires to lighten your burden, for the human being was created weak.  (Surah al-Nisa 4:28)

It is not Allah’s desire to place a religious burden upon you.

(Surah al-Hajj 22:78)

Allah, knows that it is impossible for the human being and against his or her spiritual development and well being to fast for the entire year and keep one’s devotions at the same high level as that during the month of Ramadan, so through the wise words his beloved Prophet Allah is asking us only, if you will, to live up to twenty percent of the commitment we have given during the month of Ramadan.

And this off course differs from individual to individual but the principle applies.

  For example :Our devotion and spirituality cannot be the same during month of Ramadan as it is during other months and in fact in varies from time to time.

This is an important lesson that sometimes eludes Muslims and we ignore this lesson at our own peril.

 I would like to support this view of Islam being a religion of moderation by providing clear evidence from the life of the illustrious companions of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
.Anas R.A. reported God s' messenger as Saying, "Don't be too cruel to yourself, certain nations adopted severity towards themselves so God punished them. You can see their remnants in churches and monasteries." Muhammad ((Peace be on him)) forbade asceticism and renunciation of the normal pleasures of life, nor did he like perpetual and formal prayers in isolation. He told the peoples to live the normal lives of ordinary human beings, for service to God was done through pure lives in the turmoil of this world. He wanted man to mix with other men, so that they could discipline themselves and learn resistance to evil and uphold the standard of truth and justice against heavy odds, wherever necessary.

Muhammad (Salla Allah Alai Wasallam) upheld the principles of truth and justice in his private and as well as public life and always abstained from the extremes of life. All his life in Makkah as an ordinary Trader and in Madinah as a Ruler, he led a simple life, avoiding extremes and taught mankind by his personal example to live a similarly moderate life.

The Companions of the Prophet (peace be on him) attained great spiritual heights.

Some of them incorrectly believed that in order to remain at such a spiritual level they should always be serious, engaged in constant worship, turning their backs on all the enjoyments of life and the good things of the world, neither playing nor relaxing but keeping their eyes and their minds fixed on the Hereafter and its concerns, away from common life and its amusements.

Let us listen to what the great Companion and scribe of the Prophet (peace be on him), Hanzalah al-Saudi, had to say about this challenge of moderation:

Abu Bakr R.A. met me and asked, 'How are you, Hanzalah?' I replied, 'Hanzalah has become a hypocrite.' He said, 'Subhanallah! What are you saying?'

I replied, 'When we are with Allah's Messenger (peace be on him), he mentions the Fire and the Garden until it is as if we can see them. But when we leave the Prophet's company and play with our wives and children or busy ourselves with our properties, we forget much.'

Abu Bakr R.A. said, 'By Allah, I have experienced the same thing.'
He and I then went to visit the Messenger of Allah (peace be on him), and I said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, Hanzalah has become a hypocrite.' He asked, 'And how is that?

‘I replied, 'O Messenger of Allah, when we are with you, you talk about the Fire and the Garden until it is as if we can see them. Then we go out and play with our wives and children and deal with our properties, and we forget much.'

The Messenger of Allah (peace be on him) then said,

'By Him in Whose hand is my soul, if you were to continue at the same level at which you were when with me and in remembering Allah, the angels would shake hands with you when you are resting and when you walk about, but, O Hanzalah, there is a time (for this) and a time (for that).' He repeated this phrase three times. (Muslim.)

Let's all work together as an Islamic community to help ourselves and to help our children be good Muslims.

Eating of swine flesh or PORK IS SIN AND SICKNESS---Haram

A prevalent corruption within the Muslim community regarding Halaal (lawful) meat has successfully evolved into serious confusion and widespread “controversy.” The result of such wickedness is the belief that the following three errant justifications are legitimate:

   1. Just because the meat is not pork, it is Halaal.
   2. The meat of the Ahl-al-Kitab (People of the Book) is Halaal, regardless of how it was slaughtered or what the actual meat is.
   3. If there is a possibility the food may be haram (forbidden), saying “Bismillah” (In the Name of Allah) over it is permissible, thereby making it Halaal. (Included in this one is the silly suggestion of doing dhikr over the meat or doing countless dhikr before its consumption.)

These three assumptions are deceptively propagated to Muslims who are either new to Al-Islam or uneducated concerning their Deen.
    “And do not eat that which the Name of Allah has not been mentioned. And surely it is a transgression. Surely the Shay teen (devils) inspire their friends to dispute with you. But if you were to obey them you would indeed be of the mushrikeen (polytheists).” (Surah Al-Anaam, Ayah 121)

Allah makes mention of such an ayah previous to the above in the 118th and 119th Ayahs:

    “Eat of that which the Name of Allah has been pronounced if you are believers in his ayahs. How should you not eat that which the name of Allah has been mentioned when He explained to you that which is haram to you unless you are forced otherwise under compulsion? But surely, many are led astray by their own lusts through ignorance. Surely your Lord knows best those who transgress.”

This does not mean the pronunciation of”Bismillah“is what makes it Halaal, instead, it means as long as dhabiha (is the actual slaughter of an animal for consumption) was performed, the pronunciation of the Bismillah is required upon consumption of the meat. In ALL collections of Hadith, for every serving of meat brought to Sayidina Rasulullah (Sallallaahu alaihi WA Sallam), dhabiha was always performed. In Sahih Al-Bukhari

Why did Islam prohibit eating the flesh of swine?


Food and drink have direct effect on our health. That is why Islam has prescribed regulations about our food and drink. It lays great emphasis on our physical as well as moral health, because both of these are equally important for a healthy society. The abstention from eating pork is one of the steps taken by Islam to practice hygiene and to attain purity of soul.

Islam, for the cultivation of inner faculties, insists upon the cleanliness of body and the purification of soul through Salah (prayers), Zikr (remembrance of Allah) and other devotional duties. Islam teaches us how to attain the virtues and how to give up bad habits because both good and bad grow in the man according to his upbringing, education and environment.

A human being has natural desires: food, sleep and sex being the three primary ones. He has also natural emotions: sorrow, happiness, love, fear, disgust and avarice etc. Islam doesn't recommend the complete abrogation of these impulses but offers a method of controlling them through religious education and discipline.

The pig cannot get rid of the entire quantity of uric acid that is formed in its body, given that it is the main element of urine. It gets rid of only 2% and 98% remains in its flesh. That simply means that the flesh of swine is saturated with the main element of urine, which the bodies of all living beings on the surface of the earth endeavor to get rid of through the urinary system, due to the poisonous substances it contains. This is why those who eat the flesh of swine have high rates of arthritis, due to the high rate of uric acid in their blood.

THE pig or swine is a very popular food item with most Christians. Yet Christians are unaware that the God they profess to believe in had condemned the eating of swine's flesh. The condemnation was based on some very sound biological principles. Here are some facts on pork that prove it to be a very unhealthy food to eat:

“Forbidden to you for (food) are: dead meat, blood and the flesh of the swine and that which hath been invoked the name other than Allah
                      Which hath been invoked the name other than Allah. "

                        Holy Qur'an 5:4

Such prohibition is also found in the Bible:
          “The pig also because it is a splitter of the hoof but there is no cud. It is unclean for you
          None of their flesh must you eat and carcass you must not touch
            Deuteronomy 14:8 (Bible)
    Islam (Arabic word which means submission to the will of the Almighty God) has laid down the foundation for the best approach in keeping good health. In the 
Holy   Qur'an (The Last Testament) God exhorts the believers to select the best food and to stay away from any harmful food to maintain good health

          “Let him find out which is the best food
           (To be had)... Eat of the best foods
We have provided for you. "          

                          (Holy Qur'an 18:19; 7:160)       

   The main purpose of a True Religion must be to build an ideal community in    this world; a religion that promotes moral,     Political and economic well; social harmony and peace, as well as good health of its believers or followers.
  Health means the physical and mental well-being and freedom from diseases and pain.
  There are several passages in the Bible, Articulating that because of sin ( a transgression of the law of
God) God afflicted human beings with maladies (Ps.103:3; Exodus, 15:26 and Psalms 107:16-20).
.Islamic instructions and teachings espousing health consciousness have scriptural and scientific support.


      Abstention from eating pork is a   measure to safeguard health. Of   all   the   domestic   animals, pig   are   the    most Avaricious, eating anything including human excrete It is the cradle of harmful germs and parasites. Its meat is carrier of diseases to man,
Thus making it unfit for human consumption.


     All types of animals are lawful to be eaten whether those
Living on land or in the water except those animals specifically
Forbidden in the Holy Writings revealed by the Almighty Creator and the sayings of the
Prophet with clear and well defined injunctions.

     Pig belong to the forbidden animals, and not allowed to be eaten by the believers
 Pig eats almost anything dirty and they are very lazy animals
 It is the most avaricious of all domestic Animals
 Amongst all animals, pig is the cradle of harmful germs.
Its meat serves as carrier of diseases to mankind.
It is   this very reason that made it unfit for human consumption.


    The following lists show germs or parasites that are found in   pork and some diseases caused by them.
Many of these Diseases are contagious while some are proven fatal. This proves that the more science advances the more Islam is shown correct as a religion of God

The fat of swine sediments in the human body in the same place it comes from in the pig; and this is indeed strange!!! If the fat comes from the belly of the pig, it would settle in the belly of the person who eats it. In this way, the fat of swine helps distort the human body.

a)  TRICHINELLA SPIRATIS (Trichina worms)
       It is the most dangerous parasite to man (Rheumatism and Muscular pain).
  The infected persons shown no symptoms recover very slowly some die, some reduced to permanent invalids. No one is immune from this disease and there is no cure.

   b)  TAENIA SOLIUM (Pork tape worm)
        The worm causes malnourishment of the person leading to anemia, diarrhea, extreme depression melancholia    and digestive disturbances

.  Cysticercus’s means that larva enter 
The blood stream then settles down in one or more of the vital organs of the body, 
For example: brain, liver, lungs or spinal cord
.  They grow and   encapsulate, inducing pressure to the system around, resulting in dangerous diseases    (diarrhea digestive disorder, anemia, chronic invalidation).

           Examples: Ascaris, which   may lead   to   digestive Disturbances, appendicitis, obstructive jaundice.

           Examples: Ancylostomiasis, which   may    lead    to
                 Anemia, edema, heart failure or retarded Growth (mental and physical), tuberculosis, Diarrhea and typhoid

                 Bleeding: - anemia and other syndromes.  If ova are settled in the brain or spinal cord, paralysis and death may occur
           Infestation leading to bleeding of the lungs
           (Endive haemoptysis)

   g)  PACIOLEPSIS BUSKI-   Digestive   disturbances    leading   to   persistent diarrhea; generalized edema

   h)  CLONORCHIS SINENSIS -obstructive jaundice, liver enlargement

   i)  METASTRONGYLUS APR-Causes bronchitis, abscess of the lungs.
j)  GIGANTHORINCHUS GIGAS- Cause   anemia and digestive disorders

   k)  BALATITIDIUM COLI! -Causes acute dysentery and general weakness


      1. Tuberculosis
      2. Fusiformis necrofurus: causing foot-rot which is very difficult to heal
      3. Salmonella Cholera sues: causing cholera
      4. Paratyphoid
      5. Brucellosis: Acute, sub acute and chronic. It may lead to permanent disabilities
       6. Swine Erysipelas: causing Erysipelas in man.  .
 Viral Diseases
      1. Small pox: is, was a source of infection to man.
      2. Japanese B-encephalitis: It is the source of infection
      3. Influenza, foot mouth disease, gastro-enteritis of the new born babies

Protozoa   Diseases:  Toxo plasma goundii- It is a very dangerous diseases. A new born baby of an infected woman may die within few days or weeks after delivery
But if he survives he may develop blindness or deafness. In adult chronic exhaustive fever with enlarged liver and spleen may occur. Pneumonia,    or 
Spinal meningitis, which may lead to death or madness. 
The patient may become blind and deaf too.

Fats in Pigs:
                        Pork contains more fats than other meats.
Therefore, people who are fond of pork are more obese than others. 
Cholesterol is higher in their blood thus making them more prone to atherosclerosis cardiovascular accidents and sudden death

Other Diseases: 
                        Flesh of the pork is hard to digest and may lead to chronic digestive disturbances.
 Pimples, boils, cysts are Common in   pork   eaters.
These are some of the parasites and Diseases found   in pork and or the skin of pigs and certainly there are many more
There is still no means of killing these
Parasites, in the tissues, neither has anyone found a method of
Expelling them even   produced any specific treatment for the diseases.



 Old Testament

     The Jews and the different Christian sects and denominations
Believe in the Old Testament. Adherents   of   other   religions alleged that the prohibition was already superseded by the New Testament
This cogent argumentation is inconclusive. No one can
Specifically point out that Jesus Christ (PBUH) lifted the prohibition.
On the contrary, he upheld it he declared:

          “Think not that I have come to abolish the law
           And the prophets: I have come not to abolish them but to fulfill them
           ."  (Matthew 5:17 RSV)

     Jesus Christ (PBUH) was obviously referring to the existing
Law of his time, the Mosaic Law! - In which the Law prohibiting
pig as article of food is mentioned. (Leviticus 11:7-11)

        “As for any beast that is a splitter of the hoof but is not a former of the cleft and not a chewer of the cud,
                  They are unclean for you. Everyone touching them will be unclean.
          “Leviticus 11:26

          In addition, the book of Prophet Isaiah said:

          “Who sit in tombs, and spend the night in secret
           places  who  eats  swine's  flesh  and broth of  abominable things is in their vessels;...
           ;... These are a smoke in my nostrils, a fire that burns all the day

        . “(Isaiah 65:4,5b RSV)

 The New Testament
        Despite the Biblical injunction prohibiting pork as food,
Still people of other religious persuasions insist on finding
Ways and reasons to justify their consumption of prohibited
Animals arguing that said Biblical prohibition was already
Superseded in the New Testament when in certainly, no one can
Specifically point out that Jesus Christ (PBUH) indeed lifted the Prohibition.
On the contrary, Jesus (PBUH) declared:

          “Think not that I have come to abolish the law and the prophets. I have come not to abolish but to fulfill them
           “(Matthew 5:17)

      The fact is, we will find in Mark 5:1-20 that Jesus (PBUH)
Even permitted the foul spirits (evil spirits) possessing a man to enter into the herb of swine.
. Since the flesh of pig is
Unlawful for the Jews, to eat and since it is   considered
Unclean, (Leviticus 11:7-8) consequently, the Jews are not to keep
Or raise them. This Biblical account states that Jesus (PBUH)
Punished the owners of the swine; destroyed their   unlawful
Livelihood and at the same time showed that pig is the habitat of Unclean spirits.

       The only provision in the New Testament alluded to their
Argument   is in Act 10:10-16.  Without reading   the   whole
Context, one would be inclined to interpret it to mean that God
Abrogated His previous command found on Deuteronomy 14:3-8. An
Alleged apparition of Peter on Acts 10:11-16 is alleged to
Supersede Deuteronomy 14:3-8, however, nowhere in the Bible is it
Mentioned that Peter actually slaughtered and ate the unclean
Animals he saw in his apparition. The correct interpretation of this apparition was shown to him in Acts 10:25-28. Acts 10:11-16

Therefore, carries   an   allegorical    connotation referring explicitly to the Gentile nations or non-Jewish nations
.  Peter Was told not to call the Gentiles common and unclean because
God’s mercy, blessing and forgiveness also encompasses the
Was told not to call the Gentiles common and unclean because
God’s mercy, blessing and forgiveness also encompasses the Non
Jews and life eternal also awaits the penitent.
      In the Bible, Jesus (PBUH) likened to a dog and pig those
People whom after receiving divine teaching failed to profit from
Them and abuses them for self-serving purposes:

         “Do not give holy to dogs- they will only turn and
           Attack you. Do not throw your pearls in front of
           Pigs-they will only trample them underfoot. "
                             (Matthew 7:6 NEB)

 The New Heavens and the New Earth

      The book of   Isaiah   66:1-24, is an oracle of the new
Heavens and the new earth prepared for the believers. Within 
The context, God condemns people’s practices such as eating   the
Flesh of pigs, reptiles, and rats.

             “Those who sanctify and purify themselves
              To go into the gardens, following one in
              The midst, eating swine’s flesh and the
              Abomination and mice, shall come to an
              End together says the LORD. "
                                 (Isaiah 67:17 RSV)

      Therefore, the prohibition    on the eating of   unclean
Animals was not abrogated during t he New Testament times. God
Will still punish the transgressors in the fire that will never
quench. This will occur during the new heavens and the new earth.


 Last Testament's Verdict on Prohibition of Pork

     Islam means" submission to the will and command of God”
And a person who embraced this religion is called     “Muslim”
Which means “one who accepts and submits himself to the will of Allah (GOD)?
 A  Muslim is obliged to be clean both spiritually, mentally
and physically. Abstention from eating flesh of swine is one of
The obligation a Muslim must observe to attain purity of the soul and of the human nature.  The believers in Islam, sincerely
Believe in the Holy Qur’an as the Word of God, revealed to
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) which says:

         “Allah has forbidden you only what dies of itself
          And blood and the flesh of swine and that over
          Which any other name than that of Allah has been
          Invoked; but whoever is driven to (it), not
          Desiring nor exceeding the limit, then surely
          Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. “(16:115)

     We should bear in our mind that the abstention from eating
Pork by the Muslims is based on hygienic grounds and of the
Cultivation of purity of character. Pork is not poisonous as to
Kill people right on the spot but latent. It will destroy slowly.   
  It is certainly not as nourishing as any other meat and
it causes prolonged  sufferings. Pondering on the wisdom of this
Saying:   "Health is wealth” It will lead you to better living and Prosperity.
. The last Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said:

             “There are two blessing which many people lose:
              Health and the free time for doing good ...The
              Stronger believer (in health) is more blessed
              and  more  beloved  to  Allah  than  the  weak Believer. "
 Interesting to know!
It is quite interesting to know that an American researcher published on the Archives of Internal Medicine website in 11/6/2001 that the renowned German musician Mozart (d.1791) likely died because of eating uncooked flesh of swine 44 days before the beginning of his 15-day fatal ailment. He was infected by Trichinella, which had not yet been known at that time.
8. The body of the pig in itself is regarded as a biological factory that has the potential to produce virus-caused diseases and epidemics that might affect man due to the genetic resemblance of pig cells to those of man. The world pandemic called swine flu which we are witnessing now is a result of the metamorphosis and merging of the viruses of bird flu, human flu and swine flu, together inside the body of the pig. They have been metamorphosed into a new deadly virus that is transferred from pigs to people and from man to man. In Canada, a case has been recently recorded where that disease was transmitted from an infected person to a herd of pigs, thus making that pandemic enter a dangerous integrated cycle.


     From   what we have read from the Scriptures of   the
Christians, scientific findings, Last Testaments (The Holy Qur'an)
And the saying of the Last Prophet Muhammad (SAW) about health
And the flesh of the swine, we now come now to the conclusion that
Eating of swine flesh or PORK IS SIN AND SICKNESS.  Therefore, we
Must protect ourselves for it is a fact that health is a   trust
And best blessing bestowed upon us by Allah.

One should be informed of the misconceptions and deceptions used to poison one’s body, and eventually one’s Salat du’a, by way of tampering with his or her adherence to Islamic dietary laws. Since no one on the face of this earth has the power to make Halaal what is clearly haram, one must strive to enforce what is lawful and forbid what is unlawful. Please take heed to what has been presented, so educated decisions can be made in the future. No single individual can survive without their Salat, and the consumption of haram meat can seriously damage his or her own prayers, amongst other things, such as affecting his or her personality for example. May Allah grant us guidance with everything we do and protect us from the ways and practices of Shaitan? AAMEEN!
