Al-Baqara | The Cow

Story of the cow of the children in Israel.

After the miracle of the split of the sea in two by Allah the most high, the children of Israel splitted into 12 tribes and each tribe had a chief…

One day a man belonging to one of the tribes got murdered and since no one knew who killed him, the tribes started to accuse each other and fought each other until the chiefs of the tribes went to prophet Musa a.s and asked him to make dua to Allah to make a way out for them and know who was the killer.

Surah Al-Baqara (The Cow) is the second surah /chapter of the holy Quran and was named Al-Baqara especially due to that incident because Allah narrated to us in Surah Al-Baqara, the most important event that happened to the children of Israel, He said:-

Holy Quran 2:72:

وَإِذْ قَتَلْتُمْ نَفْسًا فَادَّارَأْتُمْ فِيهَا ۖ وَاللَّهُ مُخْرِجٌ مَّا كُنتُمْ تَكْتُمُونَ

And [recall] when you slew a man and disputed over it, but Allah was to bring out that which you were concealing.

Prophet Musa a.s got a revelation from Allah so he told them:-

Holy Quran 2:67

وَإِذْ قَالَ مُوسَىٰ لِقَوْمِهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَأْمُرُكُمْ أَن تَذْبَحُوا بَقَرَةً ۖ قَالُوا أَتَتَّخِذُنَا هُزُوًا ۖ قَالَ أَعُوذُ بِاللَّهِ أَنْ أَكُونَ مِنَ الْجَاهِلِينَ

And [recall] when Moses said to his people, “Indeed, Allah commands you to slaughter a cow.” They said, “Do you take us in ridicule?” He said, “I seek refuge in Allah from being among the ignorant.”

When prophet Musa a.s told them what Allah asked them to do, they taught he was joking! Like: “We are telling you to find us who killed that man and stop this fighting and you tell us to slaughter a cow? Do you take us in mockery?”…

Now the problem of the children of Israel was that they gave difficulty to prophet Musa a.s, they didn’t trust him enough to do what he said without questioning because if they trusted him, they would know he didn’t speak just like that by his head, he was given a revelation by God himself because he is a prophet! So if he asked them to slaughter a cow, it’s because Allah revealed it to him, he didn’t invent it from his head.

When the children of Israel understood that musa a.s was serious they asked:-

Holy Quran 2:68

قَالُوا ادْعُ لَنَا رَبَّكَ يُبَيِّن لَّنَا مَا هِيَ ۚ قَالَ إِنَّهُ يَقُولُ إِنَّهَا بَقَرَةٌ لَّا فَارِضٌ وَلَا بِكْرٌ عَوَانٌ بَيْنَ ذَٰلِكَ ۖ فَافْعَلُوا مَا تُؤْمَرُونَ

They said, “Call upon your Lord to make clear to us what it is.” [Moses] said, “[Allah] says, ‘It is a cow which is neither old nor virgin, but median between that,’ so do what you are commanded.”

They could have slaughtered any cow they had, Allah didn’t ask them to slaughter a specific cow but instead they kept delaying and asking questions to make it more difficult than it was and instead of doing what commanded on them, they kept asking:-

Holy Quran 2:69

قَالُوا ادْعُ لَنَا رَبَّكَ يُبَيِّن لَّنَا مَا لَوْنُهَا ۚ قَالَ إِنَّهُ يَقُولُ إِنَّهَا بَقَرَةٌ صَفْرَاءُ فَاقِعٌ لَّوْنُهَا تَسُرُّ النَّاظِرِينَ

They said, “Call upon your Lord to show us what is her color.” He said, “He says, ‘It is a yellow cow, bright in color – pleasing to the observers.’ ”

Holy Quran 2:70

قَالُوا ادْعُ لَنَا رَبَّكَ يُبَيِّن لَّنَا مَا هِيَ إِنَّ الْبَقَرَ تَشَابَهَ عَلَيْنَا وَإِنَّا إِن شَاءَ اللَّهُ لَمُهْتَدُونَ

They said, “Call upon your Lord to make clear to us what it is. Indeed, [all] cows look alike to us. And indeed we, if Allah wills, will be guided.”

Holy Quran 2:71

قَالَ إِنَّهُ يَقُولُ إِنَّهَا بَقَرَةٌ لَّا ذَلُولٌ تُثِيرُ الْأَرْضَ وَلَا تَسْقِي الْحَرْثَ مُسَلَّمَةٌ لَّا شِيَةَ فِيهَا ۚ قَالُوا الْآنَ جِئْتَ بِالْحَقِّ ۚ فَذَبَحُوهَا وَمَا كَادُوا يَفْعَلُونَ

He said, “He says, ‘It is a cow neither trained to plow the earth nor to irrigate the field, one free from fault with no spot upon her.’ ” They said, “Now you have come with the truth.” So they slaughtered her, but they could hardly do it.

There was a young boy, his father was a good man whom Allah loved, this man left to his son after he died a yellow cow he loved a lot.

The children of Israel finally found the cow they looked for, it was the cow belonging to this righteous boy but he refused to sell it to them.

It wasn’t a special cow but he refused to sell it to them then he found a way, he gave them a very expensive price and since the children of Israel never wanted to spend their money and gold, Allah wanted them to pay a high price as a result of their questioning.

The chiefs of the tribes had no choice. It’s either they bring out the gold they hide for years and buy the cow or their tribes would continue to fight until blood is shed so they paid the price for the cow.

The young boy took only the low price that costed the cow and gave the rest which was a large amount of money to prophet Musa a.s so he would use it for zakat to the poor ❤️.

This is how righteous are the servants of Allah!

It was the great day and all the children of Israel gathered and prophet Musa and Haroon a.s came and the cow was brought and the dead body of the man that was already 3 days was brought and prophet Musa said:

Holy Quran 2:73

فَقُلْنَا اضْرِبُوهُ بِبَعْضِهَا ۚ كَذَٰلِكَ يُحْيِي اللَّهُ الْمَوْتَىٰ وَيُرِيكُمْ آيَاتِهِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَعْقِلُونَ

So, We said, “Strike the slain man with part of it.” Thus does Allah bring the dead to life, and He shows you His signs that you might reason.

Once the cow was slaughtered and the dead boy was striken with it, it came back to life!!! And the dead man pointed to his killer and justice was brought and the killer paid for his crime, despite the miracle they just saw, the hearts of the children of Israel got darker:

Holy Quran 2:74:

“Then your hearts became hardened after that, being like stones or even harder. For indeed, there are stones from which rivers burst forth, and there are some of them that split open and water comes out, and there are some of them that fall down for fear of Allah” thus is the justice of Allah, just praise to him.

Powerful Dhikr | Great Rewards

Juwairiyah (radhi Allaahu anha) reported that one day the Prophet, peace be upon him, left her apartment in the morning as she was busy observing her dawn prayer in her place of worship. He came back in the forenoon and she was still sitting there.

The Prophet, peace be upon him, said to her, “You have been in the same place since I left you?”

She said, “Yes.”

Thereupon the Prophet, peace be upon him, said, “I recited four words three times after I left you and if these were to be weighed against what you have recited since morning these would outweigh them, and these words are:

سُبْحـانَ اللهِ وَبِحَمْـدِهِ عَدَدَ خَلْـقِه ، وَرِضـا نَفْسِـه ، وَزِنَـةَ عَـرْشِـه ، وَمِـدادَ كَلِمـاتِـه

Subhaanallaahi wa bihamdihi: ‘Adada khalqihi, wa ridhaa nafsihi, wa zinata ‘arshihi, wa midaada kalimaatihi.

Glory is to Allah and praise is to Him, by the multitude of his creation, by His Pleasure, by the weight of His Throne, and by the extent of His Words.

(Recite 3 times in Arabic)

Muslim 4/2090

Why Is It Important To Women To Cover Their Heads And Body And What Is Its Reward ?

In the name of Allah, The Most Beneficent, The Most Merciful.

Allah (SWT) states in the Holy Qur’an:

“And tell the believing women that: “They should cast down their gazes and preserve their chastity, and not display their ornaments except that which is apparent of it.” And let them draw their head-coverings over their bosoms, and let them not display their finery except to their husbands, or their fathers, or the fathers of their husbands (fathers-in-law), or their own sons, or the sons of their husbands (step-sons), or their brothers, or the sons of their brothers, or the sons of their sisters (nephews), or their (Muslim) women, or the women in their possession (slaves), or such male subordinates who have no (sexual) interest (need), or such infants who have no carnal knowledge of women. And let the believing women not strike their feet so that the ornaments which they conceal be made known. And turn unto Allah all together O you believers, perhaps you prosper.”

(Surah Noor, V31)

“O Prophet! Tell thy wives and daughters and to the believing women, that they should cast their outer garments over their persons (when out of doors): That is most convenient, that they should be known and hence not molested. And Allah is most forgiving, Most Merciful.”

(Surah al-Ahzaab, V59)

“O children of Adam! Surely we have bestowed upon you a garment to cover your shame, as well as to be an adornment to you, and the garment of piety is the best.”

(Surah al-Ahzab, V26)

In a Hadith recorded by Imam Tirmidhi, The Prophet said:

“A woman is supposed to be concealed. When she emerges outside (without covering herself properly), Shaytan makes her adorned in front of men.”

(Sunan Tirmidhi)

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayra (RA) said:

The Prophet said:

“There are two types of the people of Hell whom I have not seen: People with whips like the tails of cattle, with which they beat the people, and women who are clothed, yet are naked, inciting men and their heads looking like the humps of camels, leaning to one side. They will not enter paradise nor smell its fragrance, even though its fragrance can be detected from such and such a distance.”

(Sahih Muslim, no. 2218)

Read First Comment👇👇👇

The above verses and Hadithsare clear in establishing that it is obligatory (fard) upon a woman to cover herself. It is clear that the aim is to eradicate fornication, adultery and all the preliminary steps that lead directly to such shameful acts. The references to ‘lowering their gaze’, ‘drawing their veils over their bosoms’ and ‘striking their feet to draw attention’ indicate that all acts or omissions which, in the ordinary course, lead directly to sexual promiscuity and fitna are forbidden.

Women are instructed to cover their entire heads. They may choose to wear clothing so long as it completely covers their hair. Whilst doing that it should be kept in mind that there is no imitation of the non-believers.

In a Hadith recorded by Imam Abu Dawud (RA):

The Prophet said:

“Whosoever imitates a nation is amongst them.”

(Sunan Abu Dawud, no. 4031)

In regards to the reward of wearing a hijab, what greater reward can there be than the pleasure and happiness of Allah (SWT) and entry into paradise.

“The righteous will be amid gardens and fountains.”

(Surah Hijr, V45)

“My servant! No fear shall be on you today nor shall you grieve. Those who have believed in our signs and submitted to us. Enter paradise, you and your wives and rejoice.”

(Surah Zukhruf, V68 & 69)

Read the 2nd Comment below 👇👇

It is narrated by Sayyidina Abu Huraira that:

The Prophet (SAW) said, “Allah will give shade, to seven, on the Day when there will be no shade but His. These seven persons are :-

(i) A just ruler.

(ii) A youth who has been brought up in the worship of Allah (SWT) (i.e. worships Allah (SWT) sincerely from childhood i.e. wearing a headscarf will fall under this category).

(iii) A man whose heart is attached to the mosques (i.e. to pray the compulsory prayers in the mosque in congregation)

(iv) Two persons who love each other only for Allah’s sake and they meet and part in Allah’s cause only.

(v) A man who refuses the call of a charming woman of noble birth for illicit intercourse with her and says: I am afraid of Allah.

(vi) A man who gives charitable gifts so secretly that his left hand does not know what his right hand has given, and

(vii) A person who remembers Allah (SWT) in seclusion and his eyes are then flooded with tears.”

(Shahih Al- Bukhari, Vol 1, Hadith no 629)

5 Pillars of Successful People.

WHY successful people keep succeeding meanwhile normal people having a hard time to be one..”

SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE tend to be more focus in anything they do, and when they are up to something, they do it wholeheartedly which means not in a half way or stop when they feel down. Don’t stop what has been started.

SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE (as in other term “rich”) do good things in life without anyone ever knowing those. As for the illustration, they are givers. They give and donate to the needy or whosoever in needs. This will sure multiply what they already have. Well, the ones that find it hard to be succeeded are the ones that always criticize and see the bad of others.

SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE will always put a burden on their shoulders so that it will drive them to work harder and not be in a comfort zone.

SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE will always dig for opportunities and utilize them for everything and make an income out of it.

SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE tend to be happier when they see someone reaches a sky, neither envy nor hatred and always share their tips to others.

Dreamin’ A Dream.

It was the best feeling that anyone could ever feel. That one day when i was living the way i wanted after becoming one successful entrepreneur. Having a wonderful.. wonderful.. life after a buzzer sound from my iPod Touch rang. Shit! That’s no way to happen. Again? My dream was being played by my mind when i was unconscious? Ha-ha-ha.

It was 19th of December. The day when a big-brown-eyed boy was born back in 1995. *Raising the eyebrow, twice.* Toot your own horn ey?!

Whatever.

I felt as fresh as Lindsay Lohan after rehab lol i’m just kidding. I love Lindsay. Okay, as fresh as the morning breeze touched by mist. That day i felt a brand new person. Like i just came out from a washing machine. For me that was a starting point. I need to work my ass off. No more time should be wasted. It’s a game time. Actions speak louder than words. We can apologize over and over but if our actions don’t change, the words become meaningless. I have wasted 9 months of my precious time since my graduation in March 2016 just to testing things. I still feel horrible somehow but i know all these little experiences i have had sure gonna benefit me in the future. So for those who still trying to figure out things that suit you, never mind, keep going but you gotta make sure you ain’t taking much of your time doing that. Make sure you learn every single thing you experienced out there. But believe me when you already found a platform for you to bloom, you’ll stand out. Then that will be another level for you. That’s when your real life starts. For me, i believe everything happened for a reason. I need to be discreet in order to achieve what i want.

If a door closes, quit banging on it. Whatever was behind it wasn’t meant for you. Consider that perhaps the door was closed because you’re worth so much more than what was on the other side. Little do you know, i.. have… so…. much….. dreams. I told my friends about it.

Hahahahahahaha.

Luckily they didn’t laugh. But there’s no reason to laugh though. Come on. That’s what i want. My heart wants what it wants. Selena Gomez, if you know what i mean. I can achieve all things i desire to have if i have a good tools, mentor, and a well-planned strategy. Ofc, they are people who “indirectly” bring me down but hey!

tumblr_ok2lhwDu491u4ekk7o1_500.jpg

You ain’t gonna ruin it, human. Nah, neither my day nor my dreams! At the end of the day, i believe my hard work gonna pay off. And if you’re currently going through hardships, believe me..

tumblr_oi3wod9trr1vmdaddo1_540

Keep smiling.

Good bye, ’til then.
