Most of Mecca's TRADING was a passing trade, for the transferred goods from Yemen and Ethiopia to Mecca and their markets and then to A-Sham. Abdul Muttalib and Banu Hashim bound traders to follow accurate moral conduct and good treatment of the traders, meeting them and hosting them, which improved the position of their trade. When Abdulmutallab became ...

To my knowledge, I have not read or heard of a specific martial art practiced in the lifetime of the prophet(Peace on him) as is done in this era. However the popular sports of the day included Running, Wrestling, Swimming, Horse riding and archery. I guess this was somewhat sufficient to keep the troops fit enough to wield a sword or shoot an arrow whether ...

The significances of 9th Rabi-ul-awwal is that this day is the day that killers of Imam Hussain a.s. at Karbala were destroyed: One particular hadith which speaks of this day tells us that while in a gathering with the Prophet of Islam, ...

Allah said in the Qur'an: Sahih International: Indeed, the first House [of worship] established for mankind was that at Makkah - blessed and a guidance for the worlds. (3:96) Pickthall: Lo! the first Sanctuary appointed for mankind was that at Becca, a blessed place, a guidance to the peoples; This verse is used as an evidence, that the Ka'...

The Kaabah has been rebuilt several times through history. At least one of these was by Abraham and Ishmael and this is mentioned in the Quran: وعهدنا إلى إبراهيم وإسماعيل أن طهرا بيتي للطائفين والعاكفين والركع السجود And We charged Abraham and Ishmael, [saying], "Purify My House for those who perform Tawaf and those who are staying [there] for worship ...

First let me comment that the dying instant is not really an instant of time, it MAY be felt as a very long period of time by the person being dying, but not always as it depends on the person being dying. In this period of time many things may happen among them being punishments (not talking about after death, but death itself). Then we have some pre-death ...

You are assuming that رضی الله عنه is applied rightfully only if the person was included in this verse. That doesn't need to be true. The verse says these groups God is pleased with, it doesn't say God is only pleased with these people. E.g. consider the prophets before our prophet like Ibrahim (PBUH), it is clear that God is pleased with him, but he is ...

Abdullah b. 'Abbas (ra) narrates from the Prophet (saws) that permission to perform the Friday prayer was given (by Allah) before hijrah, but the people were unable to congregate and perform it. The Prophet (saws) wrote a note to Mus'ab b. Umair (who was deputed to Madinah at the time to instruct them in Islam) to pray two raka'at in congregation on Friday. ...

At the time of death, the angel of death is dispatched to retrieve the soul from the person (al-An`am:61). The form these angels take depends on the state of belief of the person. The people around him see the effects of these things happening, but not the events themselves. The angels either give him good news of what is to come or bad news. Death is ...

It is very unlikely that the statement, the Bani Hashim were in decline before the birth of the Holy Prophet, corresponds with reality. If we look at the historical account of the events in the year of the elephant, which is also the year the Prophet was born, we see that Abdul Muttalib, the chief of Quraysh, was the owner of at least 200 camels, which were ...

Sacredness of mahram is clear in Qur'aan whereas children of Adam having intercourse with each other is arrived at from deduction and unverified stories, there are even alternate stories that al-hoor al-iyn were sent for them to marry. You can not compare the two. Even if the story is correct it was because of a need and only applicable to that situation. ...

On the hadith, its occurrence and qualification As for the hadith quoted five times: This hadith appears also in Sunan ibn Majah: It was narrated from Abu Musa Al-Ash'ari that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: “Allah looks down on the night of the middle of Sha'ban and forgives all His creation, apart from the idolater and the Mushahin.” Another chain ...

In general you could fast all the month except the day of 'Id (10th dhil Hijja): 'A'isha (Allah be pleased with her) said that the Prophet (ﷺ) forbade to observe fast on two days-the day of Fitr and the day of Adha. [Sahih Muslim and other Versions in Sahih al-Bukhari etc.] And you could fast as usual mondays and thursdays and all the days which are ...

The thing about him going to India to learn magic is based on the suspicions and accusations of the orthodox scholars and authorities of that time since he was shunned by most of them due to his odd statements like the views of unity and ana al haq (I am The Truth (Haq)). From what I've read about him, it seems he loved to travel to find the Almighty in ...

The main reason for killing him were political accusations with the green light from Sufism, Sunni & Shia scholars. The Sufism whom Hallaj followed, had excluded him from themselves, and also Sunnis and Shias. He had his own sect and followers. He was arrested times and released but at last with two of his hand writing the minister of a basic ...

It really depends on the circumstances but generically speaking, the person who is dying can see the angels who claim the soul. Once they witness the event, they cannot communicate with the world since they have already begun the transition to the afterlife. From what I have read (Allah knows best) an entire troop of angels arrive, by some accounts it is in ...

It might seem to answer a totally different question but I guess it can help you understand the situation in that Hadeeth also more easily: ... أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ص دَعَا أَبَا سَعِيدٍ الْخُدْرِيَّ وَ هُوَ فِي الصَّلَاةِ فَلَمْ يُجِبْهُ فَوَبَّخَهُ وَ قَالَ أَ لَمْ تَسْمَعْ قَوْلَ اللَّهِ يا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اسْتَجِيبُوا لِلَّهِ وَ ...

The nations of the past received clear admonition and guidance (with the means of prophets). The people were warned of their disbelief & actions and were commanded to do good. However the people disobeyed and then faced the destructive consequences of their actions. This is contrasted with the modern world, where the majority of people on Earth do not ...
