The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) said
Do not eat from the centre of the plate,
but rather from the side,
as barakat(blessing) descends in the centre of the utensil.

The muslim is he from whose tongue and hand a Muslim is safe,
and the muhajir he who gives up what Allah has prohibited for him

The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) said,
Wondrous are the believer's affairs.
For him there is good in all his affairs,

and this is so only for the believer.

When something pleasing happens to him,
he is grateful, and that is good for him;

and when something displeasing happens to him,
he is enduring (sabar), and that is good for him.

The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) said,
"Once the Prophet Moses stood up and addressed Bani Israel.
He was asked, "Who is the most learned man amongst the people.
He said, "I am the most learned.
" Allah admonished Moses as he did not attribute absolute knowledge to Him (Allah).
So Allah inspired to him "At the junction of the two seas there is a slave amongst my slaves who is more learned than you."
Moses said, "O my Lord! How can I meet him?"
Allah said: Take a fish in a large basket (and proceed) and you will find him at the place where you will lose the fish.

So Moses set out along with his (servant) boy, Yusha' bin Nuin and carried a fish in a large basket till they reached a rock, where they laid their heads (i.e. lay down) and slept.
The fish came out of the basket and it took its way into the sea as in a tunnel.
So it was an amazing thing for both Moses and his (servant) boy.
They proceeded for the rest of that night and the following day.
When the day broke, Moses said to his (servant) boy: "Bring us our early meal. No doubt, we have suffered much fatigue in this journey." Moses did not get tired till he passed the place about which he was told.
There the (servant) boy told Moses, "Do you remember when we betook ourselves to the rock, I indeed forgot the fish."
Moses remarked, "That is what we have been seeking. So they went back retracing their foot-steps, till they reached the rock.

There they saw a man covered with a garment (or covering himself with his own garment).
Moses greeted him.
Al-Khadir replied saying, "How do people greet each other in your land?"
Moses said, "I am Moses."
He asked, "The Moses of Bani Israel?"
Moses replied in the affirmative and added, "May I follow you so that you teach me of that knowledge which you have been taught."
Al-Khadir replied, "Verily! You will not be able to remain patient with me, O Moses! I have some of the knowledge of Allah which He has taught me and which you do not know, while you have some knowledge which Allah has taught you which I do not know."
Moses said, "Allah willing, you will find me patient and I will not disobey you in aught.
So both of them set out walking along the sea-shore, as they did not have a boat.
In the meantime a boat passed by them and they requested the crew of the boat to take them on board.
The crew recognized Al-Khadir and took them on board without fare.

Then a sparrow came and stood on the edge of the boat and dipped its beak once or twice in the sea.
Al-Khadir said: "O Moses! My knowledge and your knowledge have not decreased Allah's knowledge except as much as this sparrow has decreased the water of the sea with its beak."

Al-Khadir went to one of the planks of the boat and plucked it out.
Moses said, "These people gave us a free lift but you have broken their boat and scuttled it so as to drown its people."
Al-Khadir replied, "Didn't I tell you that you will not be able to remain patient with me."
Moses said, "Call me not to account for what I forgot." The first (excuse) of Moses was that he had forgotten.

Then they proceeded further and found a boy playing with other boys.
Al-Khadir took hold of the boy's head from the top and plucked it out with his hands (i.e. killed him).
Moses said, "Have you killed an innocent soul who has killed none."
Al-Kha,dir replied, "Did I not tell you that you cannot remain patient with me?"
Then they both proceeded till when they came to the people of a town, they asked them for food, but they refused to entertain them.

Then they found there a wall on the point of collapsing. Al-Khadir repaired it with his own hands.
Moses said, "If you had wished, surely you could have taken wages for it."
Al-Khadir replied, "This is the parting between you and me."

The Prophet added, "May Allah be Merciful to Moses! Would that he could have been more patient to learn more about his story with Al-Khadir.

the Companions of the Messenger of Allah Muhammad (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) said :
O Messenger of Allaah, tell us about yourself.
He said:
I am the answer to the prayer of the father of Ibraaheem,
and the glad tidings of Eesa,
and when my mother became pregnant with me, she saw something as if a light came out of her and illuminated the palaces of Busra in the land of Syria.

Narrated Aisha: (the wife of The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him))
"Whenever Allah's Apostle intended to go on a journey, he would draw lots amongst his wives and would take with him the one upon whom the lot fell. During a Ghazwa of his,

he drew lots amongst us and the lot fell upon me, and I proceeded with him after Allah had decreed the use of the veil by women.

I was carried in a Howdah (on the camel) and dismounted while still in it. When Allah's Apostle was through with his Ghazwa and returned home, and we approached the city of Medina, Allah's Apostle ordered us to proceed at night. When the order of setting off was given, I walked till I was past the army to answer the call of nature.

After finishing I returned (to the camp) to depart (with the others) and suddenly realized that my necklace over my chest was missing.
So, I returned to look for it and was delayed because of that. The people who used to carry me on the camel, came to my Howdah and put it on the back of the camel, thinking that I was in it, as, at that time, women were light in weight, and thin and lean, and did not use to eat much.

So, those people did not feel the difference in the heaviness of the Howdah while lifting it, and they put it over the camel. At that time I was a young lady. They set the camel moving and proceeded on.

I found my necklace after the army had gone, and came to their camp to find nobody. So, I went to the place where I used to stay, thinking that they would discover my absence and come back in my search. While in that state, I felt sleepy and slept.

Safwan bin Mu'attal As-Sulami Adh-Dhakwani was behind the army and reached my abode in the morning. When he saw a sleeping person, he came to me, and he used to see me before veiling. So, I got up when I heard him saying, "Inna lil-lah-wa inn a ilaihi rajiun (We are for Allah, and we will return to Him)."

He made his camel knell down. He got down from his camel, and put his leg on the front legs of the camel and then I rode and sat over it.

Safwan set out walking, leading the camel by the rope till we reached the army who had halted to take rest at midday.

Then whoever was meant for destruction, fell into destruction, (some people accused me falsely) and the leader of the false accusers was 'Abdullah bin Ubai bin Salul.

After that we returned to Medina, and I became ill for one month while the people were spreading the forged statements of the false accusers.

I was feeling during my ailment as if I were not receiving the usual kindness from the Prophet which I used to receive from him
when I got sick.

But he would come, greet and say, 'How is that (girl)?' I did not know anything of what was going on till I recovered from my ailment and went out with Um Mistah to the Manasi where we used to answer the call of nature, and we used not to go to answer the call of nature except from night to night and that was before we had lavatories near to our houses.

And this habit of ours was similar to the habit of the old 'Arabs in the open country (or away from houses). So. I and Um Mistah bint Ruhm went out walking. Um Mistah stumbled because of her long dress and on that she said, 'Let Mistah be ruined.'

I said, 'You are saying a bad word. Why are you abusing a man who took part in (the battle of) Badr?'

She said, 'O Hanata (you there) didn't you hear what they said?'

Then she told me the rumors of the false accusers. My sickness was aggravated, and when I returned home, Allah's Apostle came to me, and after greeting he said, 'How is that (girl)?' I requested him to allow me to go to my parents.

I wanted then to be sure of the news through them I Allah's Apostle allowed me, and I went to my parents and asked my mother, 'What are the people talking about?'

She said, 'O my daughter! Don't worry much about this matter. By Allah, never is there a charming woman loved by her husband who has other wives, but the women would forge false news about her.'

I said, 'Glorified be Allah! Are the people really taking of this matter?'

That night I kept on weeping and could not sleep till morning. In the morning Allah's Apostle called Ali bin Abu Talib and Usama bin Zaid when he saw the Divine Inspiration delayed, to consul them about divorcing his wife (i.e. 'Aisha).

Usama bin Zaid said what he knew of the good reputation of his wives and added, 'O Allah's Apostle! Keep you wife, for, by Allah, we know nothing about her but good.' '

Ali bin Abu Talib said, 'O Allah's Apostle! Allah has no imposed restrictions on you, and there are many women other than she, yet you may ask the woman-servant who will tell you the truth.'

On that Allah's Apostle called Buraira and said, 'O Burair. Did you ever see anything which roused your suspicions about her?'

Buraira said, 'No, by Allah Who has sent you with the Truth, I have never seen in her anything faulty except that she is a girl of immature age, who sometimes sleeps and leaves the dough for the goats to eat.'

On that day Allah's Apostle ascended the pulpit and requested that somebody support him in punishing 'Abdullah bin Ubai bin Salul.

Allah's Apostle said, 'Who will support me to punish that person ('Abdullah bin Ubai bin Salul) who has hurt me by slandering the reputation of my family? By Allah, I know nothing about my family but good, and they have accused a person about whom I know nothing except good, and he never entered my house except in my company.'

Sad bin Mu'adh got up and said, 'O Allah's Apostle! by Allah, I will relieve you from him. If that man is from the tribe of the Aus, then we will chop his head off, and if he is from our brothers, the Khazraj, then order us, and we will fulfill your order.'

On that Sad bin 'Ubada, the chief of the Khazraj and before this incident, he had been a pious man, got up, motivated by his zeal for his tribe and said, 'By Allah, you have told a lie; you cannot kill him, and you will never be able to kill him.'

On that Usaid bin Al-Hadir got up and said (to Sad bin 'Ubada), 'By Allah! you are a liar. By Allah, we will kill him; and you are a hypocrite, defending the hypocrites.'

On this the two tribes of Aus and Khazraj got excited and were about to fight each other, while Allah's Apostle was standing on the pulpit. He got down and quietened them till they became silent and he kept quiet.


On that day I kept on weeping so much so that neither did my tears stop, nor could I sleep. In the morning my parents were with me and I had wept for two nights and a day, till I thought my liver would burst from weeping.

While they were sitting with me and I was weeping, an Ansari woman asked my permission to enter, and I allowed her to come in. She sat down and started weeping with me.

While we were in this state, Allah's Apostle came and sat down and he had never sat with me since the day they forged the accusation.

No revelation regarding my case came to him for a month.

He recited Tashah-hud (i.e. None has the right to be worshipped but Allah and Muhammad is His Apostle) and then said,

'O 'Aisha! I have been informed such-and-such about you;
if you are innocent, then Allah will soon reveal your innocence, and if you have committed a sin, then repent to Allah and ask Him to forgive you, for when a person confesses his sin and asks Allah for forgiveness, Allah accepts his repentance.'


When Allah's Apostle finished his speech my tears ceased completely and there remained not even a single drop of it.

I requested my father to reply to Allah's Apostle on my behalf.

My father said, By Allah, I do not know what to say to Allah's Apostle.'

I said to my mother, 'Talk to Allah's Apostle on my behalf.'

She said, 'By Allah, I do not know what to say to Allah's Apostle.

I was a young girl and did not have much knowledge of the Quran. I said. 'I know, by Allah, that you have listened to what people are saying and that has been planted in your minds and you have taken it as a truth. Now, if I told you that I am innocent and Allah knows that I am innocent, you would not believe me
and if I confessed to you falsely that I am guilty, and Allah knows that I am innocent you would believe me.
By Allah, I don't compare my situation with you except to the situation of Joseph's father (i.e. Jacob) who said, 'So (for me) patience is most fitting against that which you assert and it is Allah (Alone) whose help can be sought.'

Then I turned to the other side of my bed hoping that Allah would prove my innocence.

By Allah I never thought that Allah would reveal Divine Inspiration in my case, as I considered myself too inferior to be talked of in the Holy Qur'an. I had hoped that Allah's Apostle might have a dream in which Allah would prove my innocence. By Allah, Allah's Apostle had not got up and nobody had left the house before the Divine Inspiration came to Allah's Apostle.

So, there overtook him the same state which used to overtake him, (when he used to have, on being inspired divinely).

He was sweating so much so that the drops of the sweat were dropping like pearls though it was a (cold) wintry day.

When that state of Allah's Apostle was over, he was smiling and the first word he said,

'Aisha! Thank Allah, for Allah has declared your innocence.'

My mother told me to go to Allah's Apostle .

I replied, 'By Allah I will not go to him and will not thank but Allah.'

So Allah revealed: "Verily! They who spread the slander are a gang among you . . ." (24.11)

When Allah gave the declaration of my Innocence, Abu Bakr, who used to provide for Mistah bin Uthatha for he was his relative, said, '
By Allah, I will never provide Mistah with anything because of what he said about Aisha.'

But Allah later revealed: -- "And let not those who are good and wealthy among you swear not to help their kinsmen, those in need and those who left their homes in Allah's Cause. Let them forgive and overlook. Do you not wish that Allah should forgive you? Verily! Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful." (24.22)

After that Abu Bakr said, 'Yes ! By Allah! I like that Allah should forgive me,'

and resumed helping Mistah whom he used to help before.

Allah's Apostle also asked Zainab bint Jahsh (i.e. the Prophet's wife about me saying, 'What do you know and what did you see?' She replied, 'O Allah's Apostle! I refrain to claim hearing or seeing what I have not heard or seen. By Allah, I know nothing except goodness about Aisha."

Aisha further added "Zainab was competing with me (in her beauty and the Prophet's love),
yet Allah protected her (from being malicious), for she had piety."

The Prophet said, "If anyone of you rouses from sleep and performs the ablution, he should wash his nose by putting water in it and then blowing it out thrice, because Satan has stayed in the upper part of his nose all the night." Volume 4, Book 54, Number 516: Narrated Abu Huraira:



It was mentioned before the Prophet that there was a man who slept the night till morning (after sunrise). The Prophet said, "He is a man in whose ears (or ear) Satan had urinated." Volume 4, Book 54, Number 492: Narrated 'Abdullah:'




Allah's Apostle said, "When the Adhan for the prayer is pronounced, then Satan takes to his heels passing wind so that he may not hear the Adhan and when the Muadh-dhin finishes, he comes back; Volume 2, Book 22, Number 313: Narrated Abu Huraira,

And even Jesus(as) sometimes spoke in parables.

The word's of Allaah(swt) are not in those verses, but the meaning of them is. Muhammad(saws) in a way the people understood.

i doubt it even if isis says it that many times the blood of your brother will be heard above it and God will not listen to you.
Subhan Allah wa bihamdih

try doing justice and mercy instead this pray God hears.
until you take a serious look at the quran and page 128 section 2 admonishing muslims to kill jews and christians wherever you find them as a service to your fellow muslim and God, until that changes, you appeals to God will have little audience.
