We are going to teach a book that is unlike any other book. It’s not like a book that you can buy from Barnes and Noble or Amazon and then start studying it impromptu. Rather, this is a book that has a legacy and a tradition. One that has a chain, a link, an organic growing connection that increases as every generation goes on. A book that whoever wants to teach it has to have authorization to teach it. That’s because it is about a sacred science that involves a sacred person, and it involves the life and times of the best human being who walked this earth.
In our religion, if you want to get to a level where you are transmitting and narrating what this person said, you need to tell the people where you are getting it from. Who are you to quote from the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم )?
Therefore let us understand the luminaries; the chains of narrators, those who preserved the hadīth and have an authenticated chain of knowledge to the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم ). This is the reality of the religion. It has been preserved through chains of narrations that are verified through scholars of the highest caliber and were the legends of their times.
Shaykh Safi-Rahman Mubarakpuri, a scholar of hadīth and author of “The Sealed Nectar.” had an isnād (chain of narration) to Imam Al-Shawkani (d. 1173H): one of the greatest scholars of hadīth and main nodes of chains of narrations for Ṣaḥīḥ Al-Bukhari. In order to become a node, that scholar has to be way above the rest. Most ijazahs in the world nowadays go through Imam Al-Shawkani. He wrote a book of isnād that includes all of his ijazahs where he has over 15 ijazahs to Bukhari. It is named (إتحاف الأكابر بأسانيد الدفاتر ). His shortest isnād to Bukhari has only 11 narrators!
Shaykh Abdul-Ghaffar Hassan (teacher of Shaykh Yasir) was a senior scholar of Hadīth from Pakistan and taught in the same university as Imam Al-Albani. He had the shortest isnād in the world to Al-Shawkani (4 people) for a total of 16 to Bukhari!

We praise Him, we seek His help and we ask for His forgiveness. We repent to Him and seek refuge in Allah from the evil of our own selves and from our evil deeds. Whosoever has been guided by Allah, none can misguide that person and whomsoever Allah has misguided, there is no one that can guide that person to the Straight Path. I bear witness and testify that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah, with no partners or associates, and I bear witness that Muhammad (sulAllahu alaihi wa salaam) is the slave and messenger of Allah. Allah, the All Mighty and All Wise, has informed mankind through His Messenger (sulAllahu alaihi wa salaam) about all aspects and matters related to the purpose of life. This purpose is clearly defined in the Qur’an as Allah, the Exalted, says: “And I created not the jinn and mankind except that they should worship Me (Alone).” (Qur’an 51:56) Through this ayah human beings can clearly understand their position and relationship to this life, and the duties which must be fulfilled are specified in the...

Imam Tirmidhi

...IMAM TIRMIDHI’S CONTRIBUTION TOWARDS HADITH Imam Tirmidhi (R.A.) shows his excellent contribution to Islam since 220 AH.

Short Compilation Music in Islamic Perspective

...1.0 Introduction Music is something that has been around for decades, and it has been a part of human life-style, where we are surrounded with media which consist of not only entertainment but as well as a medium of transporting information. While learning what is ethical and what is not ethically accepted, not only socially but it should also covers religiously, where Islam with no doubt comprises daily life. For this semester covering UNGS 2050, ‘Ethics & Fiqh for Everyday Life’, we would like to take this precious opportunity in researching more in depth the significance of music in Islamic perspective in the view of various scholars. As taken from one of the compiled fatwas responded by the fatwa issued by Sheikh Yusuf Al Qaradawi, in respect in tackling the word “haram” used by various scholars as to be more vigilant in their writings and fatwas that they should observe that Allah is watching over them in all that they say or do. They should also know that this word “haram” is very dangerous. It means that Allah’s Punishment is due on a certain act or saying, and should not be based upon guessing, whims, weak Hadiths, not even through an old book. It has to be supported by a clear, well-established text or valid consensus. If these last two are not found, then we revert the given act or saying to the original rule: "permissibility governing things". We do have a good example to follow from one of our earlier pious scholars. Imam Malik (may Allah be pleased with him)...

...Introduction The first thing to consider, a person is to be a Muslim is the sincere declaration of faith with which involves accepting oneness of Allah and Prophet Mohamed is a messenger of Allah. The correct acceptance of Mohamed as a messenger is to believe what he brought to us. One of the fundamental article of faith in Islam is believing Messengers. Therefore it is very important to know finality of prophethood and messengership for all muslims. Prophet Mohamed It is clear that the Prophet Mohamed was the Last and the final messenger of Allah from Quran and Sunnah. Glorious Quran mentioned about Prophet Mohamed “Rather he is Allah’s messenger and the last of prophets” (Chapter 33, Verse 40). “There will be no prophet after me, but there will be Caliphs who will increase in number." [al-Bukhari 4.661] Allah's Apostle set out for Tabuk. appointing 'Ali as his deputy (in Medina). 'Ali said, "Do you want to leave me with the children and women?" The Prophet said, "Will you not be pleased that you will be to me like Aaron to Moses? But there will be no prophet after me." [al-Bukhari 5.700] Furthermore, there are many other authentic hadiths providing clear evidences that Prophet Mohamed is the final prophet of Allah. However some deviant sects claim that the above verse only mentioned that he is the final Prophet not the final messenger of Allah by using improper definitions of Prophethood and Messengership. Finality of Prophethood and Messengership ...

Generally the accounting should be able to perform roles like keeping safe custody of interests, certifying true and fair view of business, enabling accountability and providing reliable information for successful decision making to all the stakeholders. In this context there are three main issues with respect to present system of setting accounting standards. These are undue pressures of certain groups in setting these standards, no role of owners in setting these standards, and flexibility/discretion in applying these standards which may lead to subjectivity. These may results in incorrect valuation of business transactions, increasing management discretion which in return will increase corporate governance issues including incorrect financial reporting, earning management and limiting decision making ability of the stakeholders.

Photos Prohibited in Islam

...Introduction: Photos are one of the concepts that people believe to be a factor of keeping memories and nice moments. However, there are many arguments in Islamic Sharia with regards to the photography, thus there are many arguments concerning ‘’Allowing’’ or ‘’Prohibiting’’ Photos. Many ahaadeeth that were said by prophet Mohammed (PBUH) are being a reference and a proof for those viewing photography as a prohibited matter. This is because the ahaadeeth indicated that pictures of animated beings are illicit (haraam), no matter whether those are humans or other creations. When a research is done on the sculptures in museums it is found out that in the times of “Jahiliyyah”(Ignorance-period before the religion of Islam was revealed) -especially during the eras of Roman and Byzantine States- most people showed utmost respect to sculptures and pictures to the level of worshipping them and were caught in the whirl of idol-worshipping. As a result, the idol-worshipping is considered to be haraam, since there is NO one else to worship other than Allah Almighty. However the time has changed and in our modern time now with no more idol-worshipping, is Photos considered to be illicit? Is it haraam to take a photo or keep a photo as a memory? All these questions would be uncovered in the following sentences. A deep discussion about photography and its Islamic judgment will be included in order to understand the case from different perspectives. Body / Discussion: A common doubt is...
