22 Nov Pearls of Wisdom

Following Hadith taken from "Gardens of the Righteous" : The Holy Prophet (saws) said: Charity is incumbent upon every Muslim.  He was asked: If a person should have nothing?  He answered:  He should work with his hands to his own benefit and also give alms.  If he is not able to work?  He should help a needy helpless one.  If he cannot do even that?  He should urge others to goodness.  If he lacks that also?  He should restrain himself from doing evil.  That too is charity.

14 Nov Writings of Hazrat Promised Messiah (as)

Continuing our series of weekly extracts of writings from Hazrat Masih-e-Maud (as) from "Philosophy of the Teachings of Islam": One matter to be kept in mind in this context is that in the very name of this animal, God has indicated the reason for the prohibition of its flesh.  The Arabic word for swine is Khinzir which is a compund of Khanz and Ara, which means: I see it very foul.  Thus the very name that God Almighty gave to this animal at the beginning points to its uncleanness.  It is a curious coincidence that in Hindi this animal is call Su'ar, which is a compound of Su' and Ara.  This also means: I see it very foul...

14 Nov Writings of Hazrat Promised Messiah (as)

Continuing our series of weekly extracts of writings from Hazrat Masih-e-Maud (as) from "Philosophy of the Teachings of Islam": The purpose of the Holy Quran was to elevate savages into men, and then to equip them with moral qualities, and finally raise them to the level of godly persons.  The Holy Quran thus comprehends all those three projects. As sometimes a surgeon has to perform an operation in order to restore the patient to normal health, or has to apply an ointment, in the same way the teachings of the Quran, out of sympathy for mankind, have recourse to such means also.  The purpose of all Quranic insights and admonitions and directions is to raise man from his natural condition of barbarity to a moral state, and then to lift him from that state to the limitless ocean of spirituality....

The Holy Prophet (saws) said: I saw a man going about in Paradise because he had cut down a tree from the side of a road which occasioned inconvenience to the Muslims (Muslim)...
