Oh Muslims, when will you realise Your blood, your properties & your honour are sacred! Jummah reminder & (temporary) farewell from me

“… and surely, you will meet your Lord, and He will ask you about your deeds. Beware! …”

Narrated Abu Bakra:

The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said, “Time has taken its original shape which it had when Allah created the Heavens and the Earth. The year is of twelve months, four of which are sacred, and out of these (four) three are in succession, i.e. Dhul-Qa’da, Dhul-Hijja and Al-Muharram, and the fourth is Rajab which is named after the Mudar tribe, between (the month of) Jumaida (ath-thania) and Sha’ban.”

Then the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم asked, “Which is this month?”

We said, “Allah and His Apostle know better.”

On that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم kept quiet so long that we thought that he might name it with another name.

Then the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said, “Isn’t it the month of Dhul-Hijja?”

We replied, “Yes.”

Then he صلى الله عليه وسلم said, “Which town is this?”

We replied, “Allah and His Apostle know better.”

On that he kept quiet so long that we thought that he might name it with another name. Then he said, “Isn’t it the town of Mecca?”

We replied, “Yes, ”

Then he said, “Which day is today?”

We replied, “Allah and His Apostle know better.”

He kept quiet so long that we thought that he might name it with another name. Then he said, “Isn’t it the day of An-Nahr (i.e. sacrifice)?”

We replied, “Yes.”

He said, “So your blood, your properties, (The sub-narrator Muhammad said, ‘I think the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم also said: And your honour..) are sacred to one another like the sanctity of this day of yours, in this city of yours, in this month of yours; and surely, you will meet your Lord, and He will ask you about your deeds.

Beware!

Do not become infidels after me, cutting the throats of one another. It is incumbent on those who are present to convey this message (of mine) to those who are absent. May be that some of those to whom it will be conveyed will understand it better than those who have actually heard it.”

(The sub-narrator, Muhammad, on remembering that narration, used to say, “Muhammad spoke the truth!”) He (i.e. Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم) then added twice, “No doubt! Haven’t I conveyed (Allah’s Message) to you?”

Recorded in Sahih Bukhari

This is the last live post from The Akh for a while, I’m off on a new adventure, no blogging, no tweeting, falling totally off the grid, but fear not for I shall return.

In the meantime I’ve got several posts that have been sitting in my drafts section that I’ve got queued up  to release once a week, every Friday, so please do check back.

There’ll be no releasing of any new comments ’til I return (for obvious zionist trolling purposes).

I leave you with the words of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم

Your blood, your properties and your honour are sacred.

The call to Tawheed and stopping oppression are intertwined, the articles of your Islamic faith dictate that you muster all your energies into ensuring the oppressor desists and that the oppressed have their justice.

You are commanded to defend these at all times, do not let anyone, be they Muslim or otherwise, tell you any differently.

Insh’Allah I’ll see you back here sometime in the month of Dhū al-Ḥijja.

In my thoughts and Duah’s as always.

Akh The Angry Academic Activist.
