According to the teachings of Islam, one should look at someone's speech to recognize him and to know what he says and if it is worthy or not, as God has said: "Those Who listen to speech and follow the best of it. Those are the ones Allah has guided, and those are people of understanding" (Az-Zumar, 18).
This is why "Allamah Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani" wants everyone to hear his speech, as he says: "Hearken to my speech and do not ask who I am; Since the identity of human will be revealed by his speech and the wise will look at the speech and not to the speaker!" (source: Letter number 1 in the website Www.alkhorasani.com/en). So, if you want to recognize him, read his speeches gathered in the following website.

Written at a time when the whole of West was confused and had a very distorted and violent portrait of Muhammad (P.B.U.H) in its mind owing to Salman Rushdie's "The Satanic Verses" wherein he had portrayed the Prophet in a bizarrely biased way thereby shaking the entire Muslim world and bringing anger and grief to it, Karen Armstrong's "Muhammad (P.B.U.H) - A Biography of the Prophet" played the role of a go-between and made the West apprehend what Muhammad truly was like, and what qualities He had in Him. Honestly speaking, I've been moved by her impartial and unbiased approach to Prophet's life and the incidents that took place before His birth, whilst He was alive, and after He left this world - however partly the latter.
I'll come up with a much detailed review about this book as soon as I finish reading it which I believe will take longer than a book of this size normally would take.

The Pearl of Peace
There was once a man who was in a state of poverty. One day, he left home with some yarn and sold it for one dirham (silver coin), hoping to purchase flour. Coincidentally, he thereafter passed by two men who were fighting with one another and shouting. On enquiring the reason for their quarrel, he was informed that they were fighting over a dirham. In order to end their dispute and create peace between them, he gave them his dirham – even though it was the only money that he possessed.
The man then returned home and informed his wife of what had transpired. As they were in poverty and required food, she gathered some of their household items and handed them to her husband so that he could sell them and raise some money to buy their needs. Unfortunately, despite his efforts, he was unable to sell the goods.
After some time he met a man who had a fish that had begun to spoil. On seeing him, the man said, “You have goods which you cannot sell, and I have something which I cannot sell. Why do you not then sell me your goods in exchange of this fish?” The man agreed and they thus swapped the fish for the goods.
He then went home and handed the fish to his wife saying, “Please clean and prepare this fish, as we are dying of hunger!” Suddenly, while cleaning the fish, she slit its belly and discovered a pearl inside! She turned to her husband and said, “Something has emerged from the belly of the fish. It is smaller than a chicken’s egg and resembles a pigeon’s egg.”
The husband asked her to show it to him. When he looked at the item, he saw something that he had never before seen in his life. He was seized by excitement and exclaimed, “I think that it’s a pearl!” His wife asked him, “Do you know the value of a pearl?” He replied, “No, but I know a person who does.” Saying this, the husband took the pearl and went to one of his friends who was a jeweller by trade.
When he arrived at the shop of his friend, he greeted him with salaam and sat to speak to him. He then handed the pearl to him and asked, “How much is this worth?” After examining the pearl for a lengthy period, his friend said, “I can give you forty thousand dirhams (silver coins) 👇🏻
Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:
My Senior Buzrugaan-e-Deen have not only mentioned the following advice but I had seen them diligently practise upon it in their lives as well – a person should not be more concerned regarding how people deal with him, rather he should be more concerned regarding how he deals with them. In many writings of our Senior Ulama and Buzrugaan-e-Deen, we will find this repeatedly being mentioned that if a person has outstanding rights which he owes to the people, be they monetary rights or other rights, then he should endeavour to fulfil them so that he is not held accountable in the Hereafter. As far as the rights which others owe to him are concerned, be they monetary rights or other rights, then he should not become over worried and concerned. The reason is that if they do not fulfil his rights in this world, Allah Ta‘ala will compensate him with a reward that is far greater than that which he lost in this world. (Qutbul Aqtaab Hazrat Sheikhul Hadith Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 389)
Imaam Zufar (rahimahullah), the student of Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah), reports that he once heard Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) mention the following, explaining how he had commenced acquiring the knowledge of Fiqh. Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) said:
Initially, I commenced studying and acquiring the knowledge of ‘Aqaa’id, until the time came when I was well known and renowned in this field. We would sit close to the gathering of Imaam Hammaad bin Abi Sulaimaan (rahimahullah). One day, a woman came to me and asked me a mas’alah saying, “A man has a wife and he intends to divorce her in the correct Shar‘ee manner. How many talaaqs should he issue to her?” I did not know the answer, and so I instructed her to go to Imaam Hammaad (rahimahullah) and pose the question to him. I also told her to thereafter return to me and inform me of the answer that he gave. The woman went to Imaam Hammaad (rahimahullah) and enquired regarding the same mas’alah. Imaam Hammaad (rahimahullah) answered, “He should wait for her menses to complete and thereafdter issue the talaaq in the state of purity wherein he did not engage in relations with her. He should thereafter allow her to complete her ‘iddat, after which it will be permissible for her to marry another man.” When the woman returned to me and informed me of his answer, I said, “I do not need to dedicate myself to the knowledge of ‘Aqaa’id any longer and I should now dedicate myself to acquiring the knowledge of Fiqh.” I thus awoke, picked up my sandals and joined the gathering of Imaam Hammaad (rahimahullah). I would listen to all the masaa’il that he would mention and I would commit them to memory. The following day, he would repeat the masaa’il and I would ensure that what I had understood and memorized was correct. Imaam Hammaad (rahimahullah) would correct the other students in their understanding and would approve of my understanding in Fiqh thereby saying to them, “None of you should sit at my side in the center of the gathering besides Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah).” I remained in the gathering of Imaam Hammaad (rahimahullah) for ten years, until I felt myself fit to issue fatwa and lead the people. 👇🏻
Fast Two Days on the Occasion of ‘Aashura
عن ابن عبّاس رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنه قال قال رسول الله صَلَّى الله عَلَيهِ وَ سَلَّمَ صُوْمُوْا يَوْمَ عَاشُوْرَاءَ وَخَالِفُوْا الْيَهُوْدَ صُوْمُوْا قَبْلَهُ يَوْمًا أَوْ بَعْدَهُ يَوْمًا (مسند أحمد رقم 2154)
Hadhrat Ibn Abbaas (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, “Fast on the Day of ‘Aashuraa and contradict the jews. (The jews used to fast on the tenth only.) Fast on the day before the tenth or the day after the tenth (as well).”
HUSBAND HELPING WITH HOUSEHOLD CHORES
Islam teaches us to refrain from pride; hence, it exhorts us to do our own housework – with our own hands. Thus, Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) would himself attend to the household chores with his own blessed hands. He milked the goat, mended shoes and assisted with preparing the food. When someone asked Hadhrat Aishah (Radhiallaahu-Anhu) about Rasulullah’s (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) program at home, she said: “Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) did not stay idle at home. He would join us in the housework.”
Fasting on the Day of ‘Aashura
عن أبي قتادةَ الأنصاري رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنه أَنَّ رَسُوْلَ اللّهِ صَلَّى الله عَلَيهِ وَ سَلَّمَ سُئِلَ عَنْ صَوْمِ يَوْمِ عَاشُوْرَاءَ فَقَالَ يُكَفِّرُ السَّنَةَ الْمَاضِيَةَ (مسلم رقم 1162)
Hadhrat Abu Qataadah (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) was asked regarding (the virtue of) fasting on the Day of `Aashuraa (tenth of Muharram). Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) replied, “It (fasting on the Day of `Aashuraa) wipes out the sins of the past year.”
Hazrat Katheer bin Qais (rahimahullah) reports the following: I was once seated with Hazrat Abu Dardaa (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) in the musjid of Damascus when a man came to him and said, “O Abu Dardaa (radhiyallahu ‘anhu)! I have come to you from the city of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) (i.e. Madinah Munawwarah) to acquire a Hadith which I was told that you narrate from Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). I did not come here for any other need or purpose besides acquiring this Hadith from you.” In reply, Hazrat Abu Dardaa (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrated the following Hadith saying, “Indeed I heard Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) saying, ‘Whoever treads a path in search of the knowledge of Deen, Allah Ta‘ala will make it easy for him to tread on a path from the paths that lead to Jannah. Indeed the angels spread their wings out of happiness for the one who seeks the knowledge of Deen. Indeed the ‘Aalim is such that the inhabitants of the heavens and the earth and the fish in the water all seek forgiveness on his behalf. Indeed the virtue of the ‘Aalim who is primarily engaged in the propagation of the knowledge of Deen is superior to the person who is primarily engaged in nafl ‘ibaadah, just like the superiority of the fourteenth full moon over all the stars. Indeed the ‘Ulamaa are the heirs of the Ambiyaa (‘alaihimus salaam), and the Ambiyaa (‘alaihimus salaam) did not leave dinars nor dirhams as their inheritance, they left the knowledge of Deen as their inheritance. Hence, the one who acquires the knowledge of Deen has definitely acquired a complete share.’”
You are what you eat!
Imaam Abu Muhammad Al-Juwayni (رحمه الله) was a great ‘Aalim (scholar of the Religion) who possessed an extremely high level of caution and concern regarding the consumption of Halaal and Haraam. The level of his concern was such that it prompted him to earn by working with his own hands, in order to have the peace of mind that he was earning a pure livelihood that was untainted by Haraam.
When the time for Imaam Abu Muhammad Al Juwayni (رحمه الله) to marry arrived, he used the pure money which he had painstakingly earned, to pay for his Mahr (dowry) and other marriage expenses. The effect of this pure wealth was clearly manifest in the son he was blessed with from this marriage. This son also grew up to become a great ‘Aalim and was later known by the title of “Imaamul Haramain” (Imaam of the Two Harams). Understanding the crucial role consumption of Halaal plays in the effort of a Muslim to live a life of piety, he ensured that he fed his child only that which was 100% pure and Halaal.
Later in his life, when Imaamul Haramain (رحمه الله) was once engaged in a debate, to the absolute astonishment of all present, he was suddenly overcome by a short bout of stammering and stuttering! Somebody later asked him, “O Imaam! What happened to you? We never once before heard you stammer or stutter!” Imaamul Haramain (رحمه الله) replied, “It can only have been the ill effects of the remaining traces which remained of the sip.” Having given such a vague answer, somebody asked him, “What incident are you referring to by mentioning ‘the sip’?” Imaamul Haramain (رحمه الله) explained, “My mother was once busy preparing my father’s food when I began to cry. I was, at the time, a suckling infant. As my mother could not immediately attend to me, the neighbour’s slave girl, who happened to be present, clasped me to her chest to feed me. My father walked in at that moment and on seeing what was happening, immediately exclaimed, ‘Neither does this slave girl belong to us nor does she have the right to feed our child her milk as her masters have not permitted it!’ Saying this, he grabbed me from her and turned me upside down; forcing me to vomit 👇🏻
Hazrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee (Daamat Barakaatuhu) mentioned:
The amount of comforts and luxuries we see around us today was probably never experienced before. But strangely the more the items of luxury, the more the discomfort and depression.
The same applies to medicine. Doctors have progressed to this level that a man’s heart can be removed from his body, get treated and then replaced. But here also every coming day there are more and more complications. Similar is the case with security. We enjoy so many levels of security yet we still feel so insecure.
The reason for all of this is that we have removed Allah Ta‘ala from the equation. We need to firmly believe that Allah Ta‘ala does. The controls are solely in His hands. The stronger this conviction becomes the more comfort, mental ease, guidance and direction we will find. On the contrary the more godlessness comes into a person, the more he will find himself falling into depression and despondency.
The Angels recording the Durood
عن عقبة بن عامر رضي الله عنه قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : إن للمساجد أوتادا جلساؤهم الملائكة إن غابوا فقدوهم وإن مرضوا عادوهم وإن رأوهم رحبوا بهم وإن طلبوا حاجة أعانوهم فإذا جلسوا حفت بهم الملائكة من لدن أقدامهم إلى عنان السماء بأيديهم قراطيس الفضة وأقلام الذهب يكتبون الصلاة على النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم ويقولون : اذكروا رحمكم الله زيدوا زادكم الله فإذا استفتحوا الذكر فتحت لهم أبواب السماء واستجيب لهم الدعاء وتطلع عليهم الحور العين وأقبل الله عز وجل عليهم بوجهه ما لم يخوضوا في حديث غيره ويتفرقوا فإذا تفرقوا أقام الزوار يلتمسون حلق الذكر رواه أبو القاسم ابن بشكوال بسند ضعيف وذكره صاحب الدر المنظم (القول البديع ص257)
Hazrat ‘Uqbah bin ‘Aamir (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Indeed the Masaajid have ‘pegs’ (i.e. people who remain committed to the musjid engaged in ‘ibaadah, just as pegs are fixed to the ground). The angels remain seated with such people. If they are absent from the musjid, the angels miss them, and if they are sick, the angels visit them, and if the angels see them, they welcome them, and if they have any need, the angels assist them to fulfill their need. When they sit (in the musjid to engage in the remembrance of Allah Ta‘ala, recitation of durood, etc), the angels throng around them from their feet until the sky. These angels have pages of silver and pens of gold in their hands with which they record the durood upon Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) (which is recited by these people). The angels say to them, “Continue engaging in the zikr of Allah Ta‘ala, May Allah Ta‘ala have mercy on you! Increase (your zikr and durood), may Allah Ta‘ala increase you (in good)!” When these people commence making the zikr of Allah Ta‘ala, the doors of the sky are opened for them, their du‘aas are answered, the damsels of Jannah peer down at them, and Allah Ta‘ala focuses His special mercy towards them so long as they do not engage in any other activity and they do not depart. When they depart from the musjid, the angels rise and search for the gatherings of zikr.” يَا رَبِّ صَلِّ وَسَلِّمْ دَائِمًا اَبَدًا عَلَى حَبِيْبِكَ خَيْرِ الْخَلْقِ كُلِّهِمِ
On one occasion, due to inclement weather, meat could not be delivered to Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih). Coincidentally, Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) was expecting guests regarding whom Hazrat Moulana (rahmatullahi ‘alaihi) knew that they liked meat. Moulana (rahimahullah) was thus saddened that he would not be able to serve meat to these guests on that occasion.
Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) then mentioned, “Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) has mentioned in a Hadith:
من كان يؤمن بالله واليوم الآخر فليكرم ضيفه ‘He who believes in Allah Ta‘ala and the last day should honor his guest.’” Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) thereafter said, “When we are commanded to honor the guest, then how much more deserving of honor are the guests of Allah Ta‘ala and Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) who have come to us to learn deen.” (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 18-19)
Emulating the Sunnah
Marroozi (rahimahullah) mentions:
I once saw Abu ‘Abdillah, Imaam Ahmed bin Hambal (rahimahullah), stand to complete his ma’mool (apportioned amount) of tahajjud after approximately half the night had passed. He then remained engaged in completing it until it was close to the time of sehri. I also saw him performing nafl salaah (i.e. the sunnah of awwaabeen) between maghrib and ‘esha.
(Siyar A’laam min Nubalaa vol. 11 pg. 223)
The Hayaa of Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu)
Hazrat Anas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The most merciful of my ummah towards my ummah is Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), and the most staunch in (upholding) the command of Allah Ta‘ala is Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), and the most true in hayaa is Hazrat ‘Uthmaan bin ‘Affaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), and the most knowledgeable regarding halaal and haraam is Hazrat Mu‘aaz bin Jabal (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), and the most knowledgeable regarding the masaa’il of inheritance is Hazrat Zaid bin Thaabit (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), and the most knowledgeable regarding the recitation of the Qur’aan Majeed is Hazrat Ubayy bin Ka‘b (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), and every Ummah has a trustee, and the trustee of this ummah is Hazrat Abu ‘Ubaidah bin Jarraah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).” (Sunan Tirmizi #3790
Expiation of Sins Through Performing Wudhu
عن عثمان بن عفان رضى الله عنه قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم من توضأ فأحسن الوضوء خرجت خطاياه من جسده حتى تخرج من تحت أظفاره. رواه مسلم (الترغيب والترهيب 1/210)
Hazrat Uthmaan (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Whoever performs wudhu, and does it in a perfect manner, his (minor) sins are removed (and washed away) from his body to the extent that they fall off from beneath his fingernails.”
