Miftah-ul-Janna (Booklet for way to Paradise)

he does not admit that

he does not admit that it is one’s primary duty, he becomes a kâfir (unbeliever). This hadîth-i-sherîf is quoted by Imâm Ahmad, by Tirmuzî, by Nesâî, and by Ibni Mâja, (four of the greatest savants of Hadîth.) 10– Abû Zer-i-Ghifârî ‘radiy-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’anh’ relates: On one of the days of Autumn Rasûlullah ‘sall-Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam’ and I went out. Leaves were falling. He picked two twigs from a tree. All their leaves fell at once. “Yâ Abâ Zer! When a Muslim performs namâz for the grace of Allah, all their sins will fall like the falling leaves of these branches,” he said. This hadîthi-sherîf is quoted by Imâm Ahmad. 11– Zeyd bin Khâlid Juhemî narrates: Rasûlullah ‘sall-Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam’ stated: “When a Muslim performs a namâz of two rak’ats properly and with khushû’, his past sins will be forgiven.” That is, all his venial sins will be forgiven. This hadîth-isherîf is quoted by Imâm Ahmad ‘rahima-hullâhu ta’âlâ’. 12– ’Abdullah bin ’Amr ibni ’Âs ‘radiy-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’anhumâ’ narrates: Rasûlullah ‘sall-Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam’ stated: “If a person performs namâz, that namâz will become a nûr (light) and a burhân (voucher) and cause them to attain salvation. If they do not protect the namâz, it will not become a nûr and a burhân, so that they will not attain salvation. They will be kept together with Qârûn, with Pharaoh, with Hâmân, and with Ubeyy bin Khalef.” As is seen, if a Muslim performs namâz mindfully of its fards, wâjibs, sunnats, and adabs, that namâz will cause them to be in nûr on the Rising Day. If they do not keep performing namâz in this manner, they will be among the aforesaid unbelievers on the Rising Day. That is, they will be subjected to severe torment in Hell. Ubeyy bin Khalef was one of the implacable Meccan unbelievers. In the Holy War of Uhud, Rasûlullah ‘sall-Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam’ dispatched him to Hell with his own blessed hand. This hadîth-i-sherîf is quoted by Imâm Ahmad, by Imâm Beyhekî, and by Dârimî (’Abdullah bin ’Abd-ur-Rahmân Hâfid Abû Muhammad). 13– ’Abdullah bin Shaqîq ‘rahima-hullâhu ta’âlâ’, one of the greater ones of the Tâbi’în, states: “The Sahâba-i-kirâm ‘radiy- Allâhu ’anhum’ said that of all acts of worship the namâz is the only one which will cause its neglecter to become a kâfir (enemy of Allah).” This information has been furnished by (Muhammad bin ’Îsâ) Tirmuzî ‘rahmatullâhi ’alaih’. ’Abdullah bin Shaqîq narrated hadîth-i-sherîfs on the authority of (Sahâbîs such as) – 182 –

’Umar, ’Alî, ’Uthmân, and ’Âisha ‘radiy-Allâhu ’anhum’. He passed away in the hundred and eighth year of the Hegira. 14– Abu-d-derdâ ‘radiy-Allâhu ’anh’ states: My very much beloved one said to me: “Even if you are torn to pieces or burned in fire, never attribute any partner to Allâhu ta’âlâ! Never omit farz namâzes! A person who omits farz namâzes goes out of Islam. Never drink wine. Wine is a key to all evils.” As is seen, a person who heedlessly omits farz namâzes becomes a kâfir. A person who omits them because of indolence does not become a kâfir; yet it is a grave sin. It is not sinful to fail to perform them on account of one of the five ’udhrs prescribed by Islam. Wine and all the other alcoholic beverages suspend one’s mind. A person with suspended mind is prone to do any evil. 15– ’Alî ‘radiy-Allâhu ’anh’ narrates. Rasûlullah ‘sall-Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam’ stated: “Yâ ’Alî! There are three things which you shouldn’t postpone to do: When a prayer time comes, perform that namâz immediaterly! When a janâza (a dead Muslim to be buried) is ready (for burial), perform the namâz of janâza immediately! When you find your daughter’s kufw, marry her off immediately!” This hadîth-i-sherîf is quoted by Tirmuzî ‘rahimahullâhu ta’âlâ’. A namâz of janâza should be performed even within the three times during which it is makrûh to perform namâz. (The three times are called ‘Kerâhat’ and are explained in detail in the final section of the tenth chapter of the fourth fascicle of Endless Bliss.) [As is seen, a woman or girl must be married off to her kufw, i.e. to a man suitable for her. To be kufw does not mean to be rich or to have a handsome salary. To be kufw means for a man to be a sâlih Muslim, to have the creed of Ahl as-sunnat, to perform namâz five times daily, not to consume alcoholic beverages, i.e. to obey Islam, and to have an income sufficient for nafaqa; (that is, he must be able to raise a family.) Parents whose only criterion for a man to meet is to be rich and have apartment houses will have dragged their daughters to perdition and thrown them into Hell. And the girl must perform namâz (five times daily), must not go out with her head and arms exposed, and must not sit with a nâmahram man in private, even if he is one of her kinsfolk.] 16– ’Abdullah ibni ’Umar ‘radiy-Allâhu ’anhumâ’ narrates: Rasûlullah ‘sall-Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam’ stated: “Allâhu ta’âlâ is pleased with people who perform their namâz as soon as its time comes. And He forgives those who perform it at its latest time.” – 183 –
