Who is most righteous in the sight of Allah?

يَا أيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّا خَلَقْنَاكُم مِّن ذَكَرٍ وَاُنثَی وَجَعَلْنَاكُمْ شُعُوبًا وَقَبَائِلَ لِتَعَارَفُوا إِنَّ أكْرَمَكُمْ عِندَ اللَّهِ أتْقَاكُمْ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ خَبِيرٌ

13. O people! We have created you from a male and a female and made you into nations and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most honorable of you with Allah is that [one] who fears Allah. Indeed, Allah is Omniscient, All-Aware.

The Islamic faith rejects all racial, political, ethnological, tribal, geographical, economic, intellectual, cultural, social, and military segregations and places fear of God as the standard for distinction between virtues and vice;

Relationships and the Jannah

On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), who said that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:

The gates of Paradise will be opened on Mondays and on Thursdays, and every servant [of Allah] who associates nothing with Allah will be forgiven, except for the man who has a grudge against his brother. [About them] it will be said: Delay these two until they are reconciled; delay these two until they are reconciled. It was related by Muslim (also by Malik and Abu Dawud).

Our relationships are important, guard and cherish them.

Hadith Qudsi

Hadith 6: Allah knows the hypocrites

Abu Huraira reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, say:

إِنَّ أَوَّلَ النَّاسِ يُقْضَى يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ عَلَيْهِ رَجُلٌ اسْتُشْهِدَ فَأُتِيَ بِهِ فَعَرَّفَهُ نِعَمَهُ فَعَرَفَهَا قَالَ فَمَا عَمِلْتَ فِيهَا قَالَ قَاتَلْتُ فِيكَ حَتَّى اسْتُشْهِدْتُ قَالَ كَذَبْتَ وَلَكِنَّكَ قَاتَلْتَ لِأَنْ يُقَالَ جَرِيءٌ فَقَدْ قِيلَ ثُمَّ أُمِرَ بِهِ فَسُحِبَ عَلَى وَجْهِهِ حَتَّى أُلْقِيَ فِي النَّارِ وَرَجُلٌ تَعَلَّمَ الْعِلْمَ وَعَلَّمَهُ وَقَرَأَ الْقُرْآنَ فَأُتِيَ بِهِ فَعَرَّفَهُ نِعَمَهُ فَعَرَفَهَا قَالَ فَمَا عَمِلْتَ فِيهَا قَالَ تَعَلَّمْتُ الْعِلْمَ وَعَلَّمْتُهُ وَقَرَأْتُ فِيكَ الْقُرْآنَ قَالَ كَذَبْتَ وَلَكِنَّكَ تَعَلَّمْتَ الْعِلْمَ لِيُقَالَ عَالِمٌ وَقَرَأْتَ الْقُرْآنَ لِيُقَالَ هُوَ قَارِئٌ فَقَدْ قِيلَ ثُمَّ أُمِرَ بِهِ فَسُحِبَ عَلَى وَجْهِهِ حَتَّى أُلْقِيَ فِي النَّارِ وَرَجُلٌ وَسَّعَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَأَعْطَاهُ مِنْ أَصْنَافِ الْمَالِ كُلِّهِ فَأُتِيَ بِهِ فَعَرَّفَهُ نِعَمَهُ فَعَرَفَهَا قَالَ فَمَا عَمِلْتَ فِيهَا قَالَ مَا تَرَكْتُ مِنْ سَبِيلٍ تُحِبُّ أَنْ يُنْفَقَ فِيهَا إِلَّا أَنْفَقْتُ فِيهَا لَكَ قَالَ كَذَبْتَ وَلَكِنَّكَ فَعَلْتَ لِيُقَالَ هُوَ جَوَادٌ فَقَدْ قِيلَ ثُمَّ أُمِرَ بِهِ فَسُحِبَ عَلَى وَجْهِهِ ثُمَّ أُلْقِيَ فِي النَّارِ

Daily Struggles

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

4. Verily We have created man into toil and struggle.

                                                                Surat al-Balad (90)

Daily we are confronted with struggles. At times it seems as thought life is just one big struggle and indeed that is true. Our Creator created us to toil and struggle with life and the various issues that come with living.

Verse of the Day

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

9. O you who believe! When the call is proclaimed on Friday (The Day of Assembly), hasten earnestly to the Remembrance of Allah, and leave off business (and traffic): That is best for you if you but knew.

10. And when the prayer is finished, then may you 
disperse through the land, and seek the Bounty of Allah: and celebrate the Praises of Allah often (and without stint): That you may prosper.

11. But when they see some bargain or some amusement, they disperse headlong to, and leave you standing.

Assalaamu Alaikum to the Believers.

I would like to welcome you to the community blog. We would like to begin, insha Allah, by posting things that take place in the Masjid like Nikah Ceremonies and other events as are approved by the Imam and the Shura Board. 

In addition to that I would, Insha Allah, like to start a daily post of Qur'anic Verses and various sayings of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). My du'a is that Allah (SWT) will guide me in this endeavor and that the community will assist me.

Nikah -- Saturday, April 18, 2015

On Saturday, April 18, 2015 Imam Ameen A. Omar performed the Nikah Ceremony for Michael and Khawla Stanfield in the main hall of Masjidal Shareef. This Nikah ceremony was witnessed by the family members of the bride and a few of the believers who were present at the Masjid. Let us welcome Michael and Khawla Stanfield to our family.
