The Right of Allah and The True Happiness

The Right of Allah and The True Happiness

The Right of Allah and The True Happiness

All praises be to Allah, Lord of the universe, peace and prayer of Allah be upon the leader of righteous men, our prophet, Muhammad, his family, and all of his companions.

Verily, there are plenty of Allah’s rights that must be fulfilled by His slaves, which are everything that He has ordered His slaves to do.

The greatest among Allah’s rights, in general, is tawheed, i.e., believing in the Oneness of Allah. As explained in Shahih Al Bukhari and Muslim.

From Mu’adz -may Allah be pleased with him-, he said, “When I was riding behind the Messenger of Allah – peace and prayer of Allah be upon him- on a camel named ‘ufair, the Messenger of Allah -peace and prayer of Allah be upon him- said, “O Mu’adz! Do you know the right of Allah that must be fulfilled by His slaves, and the right of His slave that must be fulfilled by Allah?”. I replied, “Allah and His messenger knows better.” He said, “Verily, the right of Allah that must be fulfilled by His slave is to worship Him and not associating any partner with Him (committing shirk). And the right of the slave that must be fulfilled by Allah is that He will not torture anyone who doesn’t commit shirk to Him.”

The relation between An Employer and His Employee

The relation between An Employer and His Employee

The difference between the spirit and expectation between a company and its employee  sometimes becomes the trigger of employment issues. To anticipate it, Islam has allowed the existence of a balance and transparent working contract between those two parties.

The employment sector today is one of the most wanted sector by the youth, particularly in our country. According to the data issued by the Ministry of National Education, 60,87% of high school graduates and 83.13% of college graduates are more interested in becoming employees (job seeker) rather than attempting to open a work field (Source: www.detik.com, edition:Saturday, 08/10/2011 12:07 WIB).

Ruling for Long-distance Credit

Rulings for Three sided Credit

Ruling for Long-distance Credit

In the name of Allah.

Is it allowed to sell goods through this way:

The goods that we’d like to sell was not located in our town (A) but in town B where our prospective buyer lives. The buyer just have to describe the attributes of the goods that he wanted and told us that in his town there was a person who sell the goods, then the buyer connected me to the goods owner. After that, I would negotiate with the goods owner and if we reached a deal, I would transfer some money to buy the goods, and after that the buyer could come to take the goods from its previous owner. Is it allowed to do such credit system?

May Allah reward you with goodness for your kind answer.

From: St Marwah

Answer:

Allah knows best, as far as I know, there are several forbidden matters occur in that system:

  1. You sell something that you don’t own
  2. Such transaction is just a trick to accommodate usury. The core of the transaction is that you lend some money to other people then he return it to you more than the actual sum. As for the goods, it is just served as a trick.

And Allah is the guider.

Crying for A Sin till His Eyes Sore

Crying for A Sin till His Eyes Sore

Crying for A Sin till His Eyes Sore

A companion of the Prophet -peace and prayer of Allah be upon him-, Abdullah Ibn Amr -may Allah be pleased with him- was a man who cried a lot for his sins, as told by Ya’la Ibn Atha, from his mother, where his mother was a person who used to make antimony for Abdullah Ibn Amr, and Abdullah was a man who cried a lot, he used to close his door and cried till his eyes sore.

Likewise, a muslim should cry for his sins, as the Prophet -peace and prayer of Allah be upon him- said,

أَمْلِكْ عَلَيْكَ لِسَانَكَ وَ لِيَسَعْكَ بَيْتُكَ وَابْكِ عَلَى خَطِيْئَتِكَ

“Hold your tongue, use your house a place For worshipping activities, and cry for your sin.” (Narrated by Tirmidhi, no. 2406)

Abdullah Ibn Amr -may Allah be pleased with him- died in year 63 of Hijra.

May Allah’s please always be upon him.
