His Attributes and

His Attributes and creatures. 29– To protect one’s tongue against harâm and indecent talk. 30– To purify one’s heart from mâ-siwâ [love of this world]. 31– Not to mock at anybody. 32– Not to look at (something harâm (to look at). 33– To keep your promises whatsoever the cost. 34– To protect your ears against listening to sinful things like indecent talks and musical instruments. 35– To learn farzes and harâms. 36– To use balances and tools of measurement with integrity. 37– Not to be complacent about the torment that Allâhu ’adhîm-ush-shân may conflict on you and to always feel fear. 38– To pay zakât to poor Muslims and to help them. 39– Not to give up hope of the mercy of Allâhu ’adhîm-ushshân. 40– Not to indulge in the harâm desires of your nafs. 41– To feed a hungry person for the grace of Allah. 42– To work and earn sufficient rizq, [i.e. food, clothes, and dwelling.] 43– To pay zakât for your property and ’ushr for your crops. 44– Not to have sexual intercourse with your wife during her menstrual and lochial periods. 45– To keep your heart purified from sins. 46– To avoid being arrogant. 47– To protect the property of an orphan that has not reached the age of puberty. 48– Not to be close to young boys. 49– To perform the daily five namâzes in time and not to leave them to qadâ, (i.e. not to delay them until their prescribed times are over.) 50– Not to extort anyone’s property. [It is a human right to pay the money called mahr to your wife when you divorce her. Not to pay that right incurs a severe penalty in the world and bitter torment in the Hereafter. Of the human rights, the most important one is to do emr-i-ma’rûf to your relatives and to people under your command, (i.e. to teach them – 216 –

Islam,) and it incurs the severest torment (in the Hereafter) when neglected. Hence, a person who prevents them and all other Muslims from learning their religion and from practising their acts of worship by having recourse to persecution and stratagems is an unbeliever and an enemy of Islam. An example of this is bid’at holders’ and lâ-madhhabî people’s defiling the belief of Ahl assunnat and misguiding Muslims out of Islam and îmân by way of subversive speeches and pulications.] 51– Not to attribute partners to Allâhu ’adhîm-ush-shân. 52– To avoid fornication. 53– Not to consume wine and other alcoholic beverages. 54– Not to perjure yourself. [Wine and Spirit and all other alcoholic beverages are qaba najâsat, (one of the two kinds of najâsat defined and explained in detail in the sixth chapter of the fourth fascicle of Endless Bliss.) It is written in the books entitled Bahr-ur-râiq and Ibni ’Âbidîn that when water and earth are mixed with each other the resultant mud will be clean when one of the two ingredients is clean, that this qawl is a sahîh one, and that the conclusive fatwâ is agreeable with this ijtihâd. Although there are scholars who argue that that fatwâ is a da’îf one, it is writen in ’Ibni ’Âbidîn and in Hadîqa that a da’îf qawl may be acted upon when there is haraj (difficulty). Hence, if the substances mixed with alcohol to obtain purposive materials such as eau-de-colgone, varnish, alcoholic medicines and dyes are clean, the mixtures also will be clean. It is written in the commentary (made by Suleymhan bin ’Abdullah Shi’rîdî ‘rahmatullâhi ta’âlâ ’alaih’ to Molla Halîl Shi’rîdî’s ‘rahmatullâhi ta’âlâ ’alaih book entitled al-Ma’fuwât that that rule applies in the Shâfi’î Madhhab as well. They will not prevent namâz (from being sahîh) if there is haraj in cleaning them. Theoretically clean as these liquids are on account of haraj (in cleaning them), it is not permissible to drink them unless there is a darûrat to do so. Alcoholic beverages are never clean. For, the alcohol in these beverages have been mixed with other substances not for the purpose of satisfying a need but for pleasure. Anything smeared with them becomes najs as well. It is always harâm to drink them without a darûrat.] – 217 –
