Khutbat al Haajah (first part)

Innal hamdulillahi nahmaduhu wa nasta’eenu wa nastughfiruhu, wa na’uudhu billaahi min shuruuri anfusinaa wa sayi’aati a’maalinaa. Man yahdihil-laahu falaa muDilla lahu wa man yuDlil falaa haadiya lahu. Wa laa ilaha illa Allaahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu wa anna Muhammadan ‘abduhu wa Rusuluhu (Salla allahu alaihi wa ala aalihi wa sahbihi was salaam).

English Meaning: All praise is due to Allah, we praise Him and seek His help and forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah the Most High from the evils of our own selves and from our wicked deeds. Whomever Allah guides cannot be misguided, and whomever Allah He leaves astray, cannot be guided. I testify that there is no true god worthy of being worshipped except Allah alone without any partner or associate, I further testify that Muhammad (salla allahu alaihi wa salaam) is His true slave and Messenger. May Allah salah and Salaam be also granted to the prophet's pure family and to all of his noble companions.

Amma Ba'd: (To Proceed) 

Is it permissible to pay someone to teach the Qur’aan?

Question 12: Is it permissible for the teacher of Qur'aan to request a salary to teach the people the Book of Allah?

 

Answer: The Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) said, "The most deserving thing you would take a fee for is teaching the Book of Allah."

Therefore, if the individual wants to charge a fee for teaching the Book of Allah, then there is no problem in them doing so. It is possible that the individual does so in order to have free time to teach the Qur'aan, and it is also possible they wish to do so because they have no other means of providing for themselves. Therefore, it is permissible to do so, and it is likewise not a problem that the person seeking the reward for teaching the Book of Allah whilst seeking a means of provision. There is also no difference whether the person charges a fee to teach the Qur'aan in his home, in the Masjid or other than that. The ruling of it being permissible is the same.

Quran Research/Daily Reading Assignment

Students should get into the habit of reading and reflecting upon Qur'aan. To do this you can start off slowly, assigning a reading daily. For the reading they will need to research the meaning of the ayaat from tafseer or other scholarly explanations from authentic sources.

Fatwa Subject :  The Seven Mathani

Fatwa Number :  86

Publishing Date :  Sunday 4 Muharram  1426 AH, corresponding 13 February 2005 AD.

Fatwas Source :  From the Fatwas Issued by the Permanent Committee for Scholarly Research and Ifta', Saudi Arabia

Fatwa Reference :  (Question No. 5, Fatwa No. 389, Volume IV, Page 273)

 

Question:  What are the Seven Mathani? And why were they called "Mathani"? 

 

Answer :  Praise be to Allah Alone, and prayers and peace be upon the last Prophet Muhammad (salla allahu alaihi wa salaam)

 

It has been said that the Seven Mathani are the seven long surahs in the Holy Qur'an: Al-Baqarah, Aal-'Imran, An-Nisa', Al-Ma'idah, Al-An'am, Al-A'raf, Yunus and Al-Anfal or At-Tawbah according to the scholars who consider the last two surahs as just one surah.

 

It has also been said that the seven Mathani are surat Al-Fatihah which consists of seven ayahs according to the soundest opinion of Muslim scholars who did not take "In the Name of Allâh, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful" into account.

 

This latter opinion was held by Ibn Jarir and Ibn Kathir according to the Hadith reported by Al-Bukhari that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said to Abu Sa'id Al-Mu'alla regarding the excellence of surat Al-Fatihah:  It is the seven Mathani and the Grand Qur'an. Reported by Al-Bukhari in the chapter on the Excellence of the Holy Qur'an (5506)

 

Al-Bukhari also reported on the authority of Abu Hurairah that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said:  The mother of the Holy Qur'an (Al-Fatihah) is the Seven Mathani and the Grand Qur'an.  Reported by Al-Bukhari in the chapter on Tafsir (4704)

 

The ayahs of surat Al-Fatihah has been called Al-Mathani because they are repeated in each rak'ah of the prescribed or supererogatory prayer.

 

May Allah grant us prosperity. Peace and prayers be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and companions.

To assist you in knowing the true worth of the Qur'aan, you should know that Allaah has named the Qur’an with many names and amongst them are:

Al-Qur’an (theRecital),  Al-Furqaan (the Criterion between Truth and falsehood), at-Tanzeel (the Revelation), Al-Kitaab (the Book).

Allaah has also given the Qur’an many descriptions in His verses and amongst them are:

Noor (Light), Huda (Guidance), Mau’idhah (Admonition), Shifaa’ (Healing), Rahmah (Mercy), Mubaarak (Blessing), Mubeen (Clear, Manifest), Bushraa (Good Tidings), Azeez (Mighty), Majeed (Glorious), Basheer (Bringer of Glad Tidings), Nadheer (Warner), Kareem (Noble), Ahsanul-Hadeeth (the Best of Speech)

Allaah the Exalted said, in describing His Book:

Allaah has sent down the most beautiful of speech, a Book, (parts of it) resembling (others) oft-repeated. The skins of those who fear their Lord shiver from it. Then their skins and their hearts soften to the remembrance of Allaah (Zumar 39:23)

Nine Great Benefits of Reading

and Reflecting Over the Qur'aan

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Merciful, may His Salaah and Salaam be upon His last Messenger Muhammad, to proceed:

Indeed the Book of Allaah is not a book like any other, it is the timeless Speech of Allaah, not a created thing, a study guide for life and death and what comes after. Therefore it deserves a more careful study than anyone else's speech. It necessitates that its reader return to the early narrations of those who witnessed its revelation and heard its explanation by the one deputed by Allaah to rehearse and explain His Words to humanity (sallallaahu 'alayhe wa sallam). For if one would try to ponder over the meanings of the verses without having done this study, then surely the filth of the time that he lives in and his ignorance of the correct application and understanding that the early Muslims had would cause him to understand some things not intended by Allaah Most High, and therefore he would go astray, thinking to be worshipping Allaah.

So every sincere Muslim who hopes to earn Allaah's Love by reciting and reflecting over Allaah's Book, then let him hold tight to the meanings explained by the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhe wa sallam), and those taught by the Companions and their immediate followers, and the early scholars of Islaam.

Know that reciting and pondering over the Book of Allaah, devoting your time regularly to its study and implementation has tremendous benefits in this life and the Next, so let us now look to just a few of them to attach ourselves more firmly to Allaah's Majestic Words. Each benefit stands as enough of an encouragement on its own for us to shun any laziness we have and dedicate ourselves to the Qur'aan properly.

1 - Reading and reflecting over the Qur'aan fulfills an Islaamic duty

Indeed the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) summarized this Religion with his statement:

"The Religion is naseehah (sincerity)!"

So then Tameem ibn Aws (may Allaah be pleased with him) then said, "We asked, 'To whom?'" He (sallallaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) replied:

"To Allaah, HIS BOOK, His Messenger, the leaders of the people, and their common folk." [2]

The sincerity that is due to the Book of Allaah, as Ibn Rajab Al-Hambalee said, includes having a strong love for it, honoring it and extolling its great status, affirming that it is the Speech of Allaah, seeking to understand its meanings, acting by it, following the orders found in it, spreading its correct understanding, continually studying it, and taking on the good manners that are encouraged in it. [3]

So by reading and reflecting over the Qur'aan, one fulfills an obligation and is rewarded for that. Upon fulfilling this obligation, the Qur'aan then becomes a proof for him on the Day of Judgement! And that is our second benefit we will take by embracing this Noble Book...

2 - The Qur'aan will be a proof for us on the Day of Judgement

This is due to the statement of the Messenger:

"...and the Qur'aan is a proof for you or against you..." [4]

So one of two things will occur with this proof, the Book of Allaah. It will either be in your favor, a proof for you on the Day when you will need every single good deed, or it will be something standing against you, the very Speech of your Creator, a proof against you! Who could be saved from the terrors of that Day if Allaah's own Speech is against him?!?!

Think carefully, dear Muslim brother or sister, about your position with the Qur'aan! Are you neglecting it, contradicting it, being heedless of its orders and prohibitions, are you thinking deeply over it?! Will it be on your side on the Day of Judgement?!

O Allaah! We ask you, by Your Glorious Speech and the rest of Your beautiful Names and Attributes, to make the Qur'aan a proof for us! O Allaah! Don't make the Qur'aan a proof against us on that Day, and save us from the hellfire!

For if Allaah makes the Qur'aan a proof in our favor on that Day, then it would also be an intercessor for us, when NO intercession will take place except by His Permission.

3 - The Qur'aan will intercede for us on the Day of Judgement

The proof: Aboo Umaamah relates that the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) said:

"Read the Qur'aan, for verily it will come on the Day of Standing as an intercessor for its companions." [5]

4 - Your status in this life will be raised

In Saheeh Muslim, we find a lovely story, about how a man from the promised people of Jannah, 'Umar ibn Al-Khattaab, and his deputy over Makkah understood this.

On the authority of 'Aamir ibn Waathilah, he said that Naafi' ibn 'Abdil-Haarith met up with 'Umar (ibn Al-Khattaab) at (a place called) 'Usfaan. 'Umar used to put him (Naafi') to work (to govern) over Makkah.

So he ('Umar) said, "Who have you put to work (to govern) over the people of the Valley (Makkah)?"

He (Naafi') said, "Ibn Abzaa."

He ('Umar) said, "Who is Ibn Abzaa?"

He (Naafi') said, "One of our freed slaves."

He ('Umar) said, "So you have put a freed slave in charge of them?"

He (Naafi') said, "Verily he is a recitor of the Book of Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, and verily he is knowledgeable of the laws of inheritance."

'Umar said, "Verily your Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) had said:

"Verily Allaah raises some people by way of this Book and lowers others by it." [6]

5 - You will be from the best of the people

'Uthmaan (may Allaah be pleased with him), the third khaleefah and fourth most virtuous person on earth after the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhe wa sallam), Aboo Bakr, and 'Umar, said that the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) said:

"The best of you are the ones who learn the Qur'aan and teach it to others" [7]

6 - There are ten rewards for each letter you recite from the Qur'aan

As an authentic hadeeth in Sunan At-Tirmithee proves:

"Whoever reads a letter from the Book of Allaah, he will have a reward. And that reward will be multiplied by ten. I am not saying that "Alif, Laam, Meem" is a letter, rather I am saying that "Alif" is a letter, "laam" is a letter, and "meem" is a letter." [8]

So increase your recitation of the Qur'aan to gain these merits, and to gain the following merit as well...

7 - The recitors of the Qur'aan will be in the company of the noble and obedient angels

'Aa'ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her), the Prophet's beloved wife who held his head in her lap as he took his last blessed breaths, relates that the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) said:

"Verily the one who recites the Qur'aan beautifully, smoothly, and precisely, he will be in the company of the noble and obedient angels. And as for the one who recites with difficulty, stammering or stumbling through its verses, then he will have TWICE that reward." [9]

So do not let the Shaytaan give you false excuses, such as "I am not an 'Arab," or "Its not my language." This hadeeth is a firm proof against these whisperings. Dedicate yourself to the Book of Allaah, whether you are an 'Arab or not! The excuses have been eliminated and the pathway has been cleared for you to embrace the Book of Allaah without holding back or offering excuses!

And surely you will not hesitate to seek a teacher or a study circle for the Qur'aan once you hear the last and perhaps greatest benefits of reading and contemplating over the Qur'aan...

8 - The Qur'aan will lead you to Paradise

The Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) said:

"The Qur'aan is an intercessor, something given permission to intercede, and it is rightfully believed in. Whoever puts it in front of him, it will lead him to Paradise; Whoever puts it behind him, it will steer him to the Hellfire." [10]

9 - Your position in Paradise is determined by the amount of Qur'aan you memorize in this life

'Abdullaah ibn 'Amr ibn Al-'Aas heard the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) saying:

"It will be said to the companion of the Qur'aan: Read and elevate (up through the levels of the Paradise) and beautify your voice as you used to do when you were in the dunyaa! For verily, your position in the Paradise will be at the last verse you recite!" [11]

Know that these nine benefits, from the many benefits available, can only be attained by a sincere commitment to the Book of Allaah, not by a person's mere statement, "I love the Qur'aan, it's beautiful." Rather the heart must be sincerely attached to Allaah's Book and the limbs and tongue will follow in this attachment.

You must know that only a few of the numerous benefits of reading and reflecting over the Qur'aan have been mentioned here. There are many benefits that await your reading in the Qur'aan and books of hadeeth, like the chapter of the Qur'aan that will argue on your behalf in the grave, and that it is a physical healing, a source of rest and relaxation for your heart, among many other things.

And Allaah knows best. RELATED ARTICLES (Found at- www.bakkah.net)
