|The attaining of rizq is not dependant on one's brilliance or intelligence. The attaining of immense wealth does not depend on owning many different possesions. Observations reveal that a person becomes very wealthy and rich by owning only a single business. |
Almighty Allah Ta’ala states in the AL-Quran "Oh you who believe, Do not eat your wealth among yourselves unjustly, except that it be a transaction with mutual happiness." (Ayat 29). The prohibition of unjustly eating the wealth of others includes dishonouring a debt. Allah Ta’ala & Rasulullah (s.a.w) have announced serious warnings and punishments for dishonouring debts.
Duties of Muslims
It is better to give Sadaqah to a relative than to anyone else. Numerous encouraging rewards are promised in the Holy Quran and Ahadith for the protection of kinship, while punishments are indicated for breaking relationships.
First 4 rulers of the Muslim Ummah. Their era is collectively known as "The Rightly Guided Khulafa", in that these 4 leaders, who were close companions of the Blessed Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w), are recognized as following his teachings the best in their conduct as rulers. May Allah (SWT) give us the oppurtunity and help us in our efforts to be like the Khulafa in our character and conduct, as they strived to be like the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) in their character and conduct, AMIN!

Main group in Islam, making up 90% of the religion's adherents. Claims to be the continuation of the Islam as it was defined through the revelations given to Muhammad (s.a.w) & his life.

Abdullah Ibn Mas'ud said: "The Prophet said, 'Islam began as something strange. And it will revert to being strange as it was in the beginning, so good tidings for the strangers.' Someone asked, 'Who are the strangers?' He said, 'The ones who break away from their people (literally, 'tribes') for the sake of Islam.'"
Narrated Sahl bin Sa'd: Allah's Apostle said, "70,000 of my followers will enter Paradise. And they will be holding on to one another. And the first of them will not enter till the last of them has entered. Their faces will be like the moon on a full moon night."Narrated Ibn 'Abbas: 'For they used not to treat themselves with branding (cauterization) nor with Ruqya (get oneself treated by the recitation of some Verses of the Qur'an) & not to see evil omen in things. They used to put their trust (only) in their Lord."
"You will not find a people believing in God and the Last Day making friends with those who oppose God and His messenger even if these were their fathers, their sons, their brothers or their clan. God has placed faith in their hearts and strengthened them with a spirit from Him. He will cause them to enter gardens beneath which streams flow that they may dwell therein. God is well pleased with them and they well pleased with Him. They are the party of God. Is not the party of God the successful ones?"(58:22)
Narrated Hudhaifa bin Al-Yaman: "O Allah's Apostle! We were living in ignorance & in a worst atmosphere, then Allah brought to us this good (Islam); will there be any evil after this good?" He said, "Yes." I said, 'Will there be any good after that evil?" He replied, "Yes, but it will be tainted (not pure)''|
'Awf Ibn Malik reported that the Prophet said: "The Jews split into 71 sects: One will enter Paradise & 70 will enter Hell. The Christians split into 72 sects: 71 will enter Hell & One will enter Paradise. By Him in Whose hand is my soul, my Ummah will split into 73 sects: One will enter Paradise & 72 will enter Hell." Someone asked, "O Messenger of Allah , who will they be?" He replied, "The main body of the Muslims (al-Jama'ah)."
Imam Al-Mahdi(A.S) will come at the end of time; he is one of the Rightly-Guided Caliphs & Imams. The Prophet (s.a.w) said, "The Mahdi will be one of my descendants; he will have a high forehead & a hooked nose. He will fill the earth with justice & fairness just as it was filled with injustice & oppression. And he will rule for 7 years. (Abu Dawud). The truth of the matter is that the Mahdi will appear from the East & people will swear allegiance to him at the Ka'ba.
Then there will be tribulation and killing.
Hudhayfah Ibn 'Ubayd said, "The Prophet came upon us whilst, we were busy in discussion He asked us, 'What are you talking about?' We said, 'We are discussing the Hour.' He said, 'It will not come until you see 10 signs: Smoke, Dajjal, Beast, Sun rising from the West, Descent of Isa (A.S), Gog and Magog & 3 land-slides - in the East, West & in Arabia. At the end of which fire will burst forth from the direction of Aden (Yemen) & drive people to the place of their final assembly.'"(Ahmad)
Narrated An-Nu'man bin Bashir: The Prophet said, "The example of the person abiding by Allah's order & restrictions in comparison to those who violate them is like the example of those persons who drew lots for their seats in a boat. Some of them got seats in the upper part & the others in the lower. When the latter needed water, they had to go up to bring water (that troubled others). So they said, 'Let us make a hole in our share of the ship (and get water) saving those who are above us from troubling them. So, if the people in the upper part left the others do what they had suggested, all the people of the ship would be destroyed. If they prevented them, both parties would be safe."
|It was reported from 'Abdullah Ibn 'Amr that the Prophet (s.a.w) said, "The Hour will not come until Allah takes away the best people on earth; only the worst people will be left; they will not know any good or forbid any evil. The Hour will not come until no-one on earth says 'La ilaha illa Allah'."(Ahmad)|
