A Story of Carpenter Who Was Ready to Retire



A highly skilled carpenter who had grown old was ready to retire. He told his employer of his plans to leave the house building business. He wanted to live a more leisurely life with his family.

He would miss the paycheck, but he needed to retire. The employer was sorry to see his good worker go and asked if he could build just one more house as a personal favor. The carpenter agreed to this proposal but made sure that this would be his last project.

Being in a mood to retire, the carpenter was not paying much attention to building this house. His heart was not in his work.He resorted to poor workmanship and used inferior materials. It was an unfortunate way to end his career.

When the job was done, the carpenter called his employer and showed him the house. The employer handed over some papers and the front door key to the carpenter and said "This is your house, my gift to you."

The carpenter was in a shock! What a shame! If he had only known that he was building his own house, he would have made it better than any other house that he ever built!

Our situation can be compared to this carpenter. Allah (SWT) has sent us to this world to build our homes in paradise by obeying His commands. Now we have to decide how well we wish to build the homes where we will live forever.

Namaz Mein Takhno Kay Nechay Kapray Ko Latkana Ya Trouser Ko Nechye Se Fold Kerna

Question:
Kiya Namaz Ada Ho Jaye Gi ? Ager

1. Namaz Mein Takhno Kay Neechay Kapray Ko Latkaya Jaye?
2. Namaz Mai Trouser/Shalwar/Pant Ko Fold Ker Ke Pardha Jaye?

Answer:

Trouser/Shalwar/Pant ka takhnon say neechay hona agar to Ghuroor-o-Takabur ki wajha say hay tab to Makrooh-e-Tahreemi hay aor namaz nahi ho gi.

Aor agar Ghuroor ki bina par na ho aor wesay hi Trouser/Shalwar/Pant takhnon say neechi ho to Makrooh-e-Tanzeehi hay namaz ada hojaye gi.

Laikin Namaz ke doran kapron ko morna , ya shalwar ko oper say morna (urhsna) , yeh donon Makrooh-e-Tahreemi hain, Chahay kisi bhi niyat say kapron ko kisi bhi jagha say mora , namaz makrooh-e-tahreemi hogi aor aesi soorat main ada ki gayi namaz dobara ada krna zroori hay.

Say NO To Abortion !

Say NO To Abortion !

A worried woman went to her gynecologist and said:

'Doctor, I have a serious problem and desperately need your help! My baby is not even 1 year old and I'm pregnant again. I don't want kids so close together.

So the doctor said: 'Ok and what do you want me to do?'

She said: 'I want you to end my pregnancy, and I'm counting on your help with this.'

The doctor thought for a little, and after some silence he said to the lady: 'I think I have a better solution for your problem. It's less dangerous for you too.'

She smiled, thinking that the doctor was going to accept her request.

Then he continued: 'You see, in order for you not to have to take care 2 babies at the same time, let's kill the one in your arms. This way, you could rest some before the other one is born. If we're going to kill one of them, it doesn't matter which one it is. There would be no risk for your body if you chose the one in your arms.

The lady was horrified and said: 'No doctor! How terrible! It's a crime to kill a child!

'I agree', the doctor replied. 'But you seemed to be OK with it, so I thought maybe that was the best solution.'

The doctor smiled, realizing that he had made his point.

He convinced the mom that there is no difference in killing a child that's already been born and one that's still in the womb.

The Story of Real Mother - Sagi Maa



ایک آٹھ سال کے بچے کی ماں فوت ہو جاتی ہے ایک دن اسکے باپ نے اس سے پوچھا کہ بیٹا تجھے اپنی مری ہوئی ماں اور نئی ماں میں کیا فرق لگا؟؟

تو وہ لڑکا بولا:- " میری نئی ماں سچی ہے اور میری مری ہوئی ماں جھوٹی تھی"

یہ سن کر اس آدمی کو جھٹکا سا لگا اور بولا:-"کیوں بیٹا ایسا کیوں لگتا ہے؟ جس نے تجھے جنم دیا وہ جھوٹی اور کل آئی ہوئی ماں سچی لگتی ہے؟

لڑکا بولا:- " جب میں مستی کرتا تھا تب ماں کہتی تھی اگر تو اسی طرح مستی کریگا تو تجھے کھانانہیں دونگی
میں پھر بھی بہت مستی کرتا رھا اور مجھے پورے گاؤں سے ڈھونڈ کر لاتی اپنے پاس بیٹھا کر اپنے ھاتھوں سے کھانا کھلاتی تھی

اور یہ نئی ماں کہتی ہے کہ اگر تو اسی طرح شرارت کرئیگا تو تجھے کھانا نہیں دونگی
اور سچ میں اسنے مجھے تین دن سے کھانا نہیں دیا۔

Bottled Water in Your Car is Very Dangerous



Bottled water in your car is very dangerous

On the Ellen show, Sheryl Crow said that this is what caused her breast cancer. It has been identified as the most common cause of the high levels of dioxin in breast cancer tissue.

Sheryl Crow’s oncologist told her: women should not drink bottled water that has been left in a car. The heat reacts with the chemicals in the plastic of the bottle which releases dioxin into the water.

Dioxin is a toxin increasingly found in breast cancer tissue. So please be careful and do not drink bottled water that has been left in a car.

Pass this on to all the women in your life. This information is the kind we need to know that just might save us! Use a stainless steel canteen or a glass bottle instead of plastic.

This information is also being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center … No plastic containers in microwaves. No plastic water bottles in freezers. No plastic wrap in microwaves.

Dioxin chemical causes cancer, especially breast cancer. Dioxins are highly poisonous to cells in our bodies. Don’t freeze plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic. Recently the Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital , was on a TV program to explain this health hazard.

He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us. He said that we should not be heating food in the microwave using plastic containers. This especially applies to foods that contain fat.

He said that the combination of fat, high heat and plastic releases dioxin into the food. Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Pyrex or ceramiccontainers for heating food, You get the same result, but without the dioxin. So, such things as TV dinners, instant soups, etc., should be removed from their containers and heated in something else.

Paper isn’t bad but you don’t know what is in the paper. It’s safer to use tempered glass, such as Pyrex, etc.

He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the styrene foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.

Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Cling film, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead.

This is an article that should be share to anyone important in your life!

Kiya Ham Mai Ya Khasletien Pori Ho Chuki ?


کیا ہم میں یہ پندرہ خصلتیں پوری ہو چکیں؟

حضرت علی بن ابی طالب رضی اللہ عنہ کہتے ہیں کہ نبی صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم نے فرمایا
اگر میری امت میں پندرہ خصلیتں آجائیں گی تو ان پر مصیبتیں نازل ہوں گی عرض کیا گیا یا رسول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم وہ کیا ہیں آپ نے فرمایا
1۔ جب مال غنیمت ذاتی دولت بن جائیگی۔
2۔ امانت کو لوگ مال غنیمت سمجھنے لگیں گے۔
3۔ زکوة کو جرمانہ سمجھا جائے گا۔
4, 5۔ شوہر بیوی کی اطاعت کرے گا اور ماں کی نافرمانی کرے گا۔
6, 7۔ دوستوں کے ساتھ بھلائی اور باپ کے ساتھ ظلم و زیادتی کرے گا۔
8۔ مسجد میں لوگ زور زور سے باتیں کریں گے ۔
9- ذلیل قسم کے لوگ حکمران بن جائیں گے۔
10۔ کسی شخص کی عزت اس کے شر سے محفوظ رہنے کے لئے جائے گی ۔
11۔ شراب پی جائے گی۔
12۔ ریشمی کپڑا پہنا جائے گا۔
13, 14۔ گانے بجانے والیاں لڑکیاں اور گانے کا سامان گھروں میں رکھا جائے گا۔
15۔ امت کے آخری لوگ پہلوں پر لعن طعن کریں گے۔

پس اس وقت لوگ عذابوں کے منتظر رہیں یا تو سرخ آندھی یا خسف یا پھر چہرے مسخ ہو جانے والا عذاب۔

Do You Know The Miracles of ZamZam Water (Abe Zam Zam)?

Do You Know The Miracles of ZamZam
ZamZam water level is around 10.6 feet below the surface. It is the miracle of Allah that when Zam Zam was pumped continuously for more than 24 hours with a pumping rate of 8,000 liters per second, water level dropped to almost 44 feet below the surface,

BUT WHEN THE PUMPING WAS STOPPED, the level immediately elevated again to 13 feet after 11 minutes.

8,000 liters per second means that

8,000 x 60 = 480,000 liters per minute

480,000 liters per minutes means

that 480,000 x 60 = 28.8 Million liters per hour

And 28.8 Million liters per hour

means that 28,800,000 x 24 = 691.2 Million liters per day

So they pumped 690 Millions liters of ZamZam in 24 hours, but it was re-supplied in 11 minutes only.

There are 2 miracles here, the first that ZamZam was re-filled immediately, & the second is that Allah Holds the extra-ordinaril y powerful Aquifer for not throwing extra ZamZam out of the well, otherwise the world will SINK.

It is the translation of the word ZamZam, which means Stop !!!!!!!!!!!! Stop !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! said by Hajirah Alaih As Salaam.

Zimam is an Arabic word, it is the rope / REIN attached to bridle or noseband & it is used / pulled to stop the running animal.

Zamzam water has no colour or smell, but it has a distinct taste.

Ten Common Mistakes in Prayer, Salah, Namaz or Salat

Ten Common Mistakes in Prayer, Salah, Namaz or Salat

Salat (Salah, Namaz) or Prayer is the most important pillar of Islam which will be questioned on the day of Resurrection. Performing Prayers is obligatory for every adult Muslim. Salah is a ritual prayer having prescribed conditions and one must perform Salaah while fulfilling those conditions. Many times we perform Prayers or Salah as a practice or a part of habit only but tend to forget the basic essence of Namaz and make many mistakes during Prayers. 10 common mistakes and errors in Prayers or Salah are discussed:

1. Delaying the Salah intentionally: 
While being busy in worldly affairs we often delay the Salah from its preferred time. This is the most common mistake in Prayer made by most of us. We think that Praying is last thing to do and we must attend to other matters first. Many workers delay Zuhr and Asr Prayer till night-time. Quran speaks strictly on guarding our Salat:

“Guard strictly (five obligatory) As-Salawat (the prayers) especially the middle Salat (i.e. Asr Prayers)” [2:238]

Here to safeguard the Salat means to perform it at its prescribed time and to be steadfast upon it.

Narrated Ibn Umar (R.A): Allah’s Messenger (P.B.U.H) said: “Whoever misses the Asr prayers (intentionally), then it is as if he lost his family and property.” [Al-Bukhari]

Another Hadith explains the importance of praying on time:

Narrated Abu Al-Malih (R.A): “We were with Buraidah in a battle on a cloudy day and he said, “Offer the Asr prayer early as the Prophet (P.B.U.H) said, “Whoever omits the Asr prayer, all his (good) deeds will be lost.” [Al-Bukhari]

2. Reciting Holy Quran fast in the Prayers: 
We must pause and take breaks while reciting Holy Quran during Salat. We should not recite the Surah’s so fast that that the verse get intermingled. One of the Hadith emphasizes this issue:

“The Prophet (P.B.U.H) used to pause after each verse of Surah al-Fatiha. [Abu Dawood]

3. Moving before the Imam in congregational prayers: 
One should not race with the imam i.e. try to move before the Imam or with the Imam because the correct ruling is when Imam says Allahu Akbar, then the person who’s following the Imam in Prayers should say Allahu Akbar. Not before Imam or with Imam. Like this Hadith of the Prophet (P.B.U.H) states:

“Surely the imam is there to be followed” [Muslim]

Another Hadith states:

The Prophet (P.B.U.H) said: “Does not the one who raises his head before the Imam does fear that Allah would transform his head into a donkey’s head” [Muslim]

4. Performing the Salah hastily: 
Salat should be performed slowly and calmly. Rukoo or Sujood must be performed unhurriedly. In order to complete the Rukoo one must stay in Rukoo posture long enough to recite “Subhan Rabbi yal Adtheem” at least three times. In the same manner, for the Sujood the person should say “Subhan-na Rabbi yal-ala” three times slowly. This Hadith commands to complete the Rukoo and Sujood in proper manner:

The Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H) said: “The worst thief is the one who steals from his own prayer.” People asked: ‘Messenger of Allah! How could one steal from his own prayer?’ He said: “By not completing its rukoo and sujood” [at-Tabarani]

The Prophet (P.B.U.H) said: “He who does not complete his rukoo and sujood, his prayer is void” [Abu Dawood]

5. Gazing right, left or upward during Salat: 
While performing Salah, one should concentrate on looking to the point where the head is placed during Sujood rather than looking upwards. Because this may lose concentration. In the Hadith recorded by Sahih Muslim the Prophet (P.B.U.H) said:

“Let those who raise their gaze up during prayer stop doing so, or else their sights would not return to them” (i.e. they will lose their eyesight) [Muslim]

6. Performing Sujood improperly: 
Most common mistake observed in Prayers is to perform Sujood by resting only the tip of head on floor.

The Prophet (P.B.U.H) said: “I am commanded to prostrate on seven bones the forehead and the nose, the two hands [palms], the two knees, and the two feet” [Muslim]

7. Not performing Prayers during illness or while traveling: 
The Prophet (P.B.U.H) always used to perform Prayers even during His last days before death. He (P.B.U.H) never neglected it even during combats. Prayer is obligatory and must be performed in any condition. If a person cannot perform ablution due to his illness then he may perform tayammum (dry ablution). If he cannot stand in prayer, he may perform Salah while sitting or even laying down. Same is the case while traveling. The person can combine 2 Salah while traveling i.e. Zuhr Prayer and Asr Prayer. or Maghrib Prayer and Isha Prayer.

8. Crossing in front of a person who is performing Salah:

The Prophet (P.B.U.H) said: “Were the one who crosses in front of a praying person to know the consequences of doing so, he would have waited for forty better than to cross in front of him” [Bukhari]

9. Going to Mosque for performing Salah with rapid walk: 
When the time of Prayer has approached and some person has fear that he might miss his Salah; for the fear of that most of us try to walk quickly or run for the fear of missing some part of the prayer. This is not allowed according to Hadith:

The Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H) said: “When prayer has already started, do not walk quickly to join in. Proceed calmly and reposefully; then join in whichever part you catch up, and complete whichever part you missed” [Bukhari and Muslim]

10. Eating food of bad smell before performing Prayers: 
Consuming foods that have bad smell like the garlic or onion etc. should not be taken before the Salah because the bad smell may irritate the angels and the praying people.

The Prophet (P.B.U.H) said: “He who eats from the smelly plant [garlic or onion], let him come not near our mosque; the angels are bothered by that which bothers men” [Muslim]

May Allah guide us to perform our Salah perfectly and help us to guard our Salat so when on the Day of Judgment we are questioned about our prayers, we may succeed. Ameen.
