Observance Of 'EID-UL-FITR



'Eid-ul-Fitr is not a mere festival devoted entirely to merry making, feasting and enjoyment. This 'Eid marks the termination of the blessed month of Ramadan and it is an act of collective thanks-giving to Allah for the boon of Ramadan and for having given us the strength to keep the fasts. During the 'Eid prayers high and low stand shoulder to shoulder, and together bow and prostrate before Allah. All distinctions of class and status disappear. After the prayers are over, the Muslim brethren embrace one another; and on this occasion the servants are embraced by their masters or employers. During the month of Ramadan the well-to-do not only pay the obligatory Zakat, but they also disburse alms and give clothes to the poor ; and after the 'Eid prayers, the well-to-do distribute sweets to the poor.

It is traditional to take a bath on the morning of the 'Eid and to put on one's best clothes and use perfume. It is also traditional to have sweet dish before going out for the 'Eid-ul-Fitr prayers. While proceeding to the 'Eid-gah, the following Takbir is Recited :-

It is traditional to go to the 'Eid-gah by one route and return by another.

RAMI AND JAMRAT ON HAJJ

RAMI AND JAMRAT ON 11TH and 12Th



On the 11th and 12th Zilhij the prescribed time for Rami is after Zawal and before Maghrib. On both these days the seven pebbles shall have to be thrown, one after the other, in the manner already indicated, at each of the three stone pillars, in this order:- (1) Jamarat-ul-Oola, which is the first of the three pillars while proceeding from Mina to Mecca ; (2) Jamarat-ul-Wusta, whic hcomes next ; and (3) the Jamrat-ul-'Uqba, which comes last. Supplications may be made (at stone distance from the pillars) after the Rami at the first two pillars ; but no supplication should be made after the Rami the third.

If Rami is not done at the prescribed time, its Qada shall have to be offered and Dam (sacrifice) shall also have to be made.

A person who is so weak that he cannot stand up for prayers (Salat)m which he offers while sitting, and who has not the strength to reach the Jamrat, may appoint some other person as his deputy for performing the Rami on his behalf. The deputy should first throw all the seven pebbles, in the prescribed manner, on his own behalf, and thereafter perform the Rami, in the prescribed manner, on behalf of the person who appointed him as his deputy for this purpose.

HOLY PROPHET MUHAMMAD(PBUH)

HOLY PROPHET BUT A MAN ; HIM LIMITATIONS

While the Qur'an bears testimony to the sublimity of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him) character, and records some of the miracles performed by him and the special favours conferred on him by Allah, it makes him tell the pagans, again and again, that he was no more than a man like them but he received revelation (wahyi) from Allah (17:93 ; 18:10 ; 41:6) ; that he was a mortal and would die like them (39:30) ; that he did not claim to be an angel (6:50) ; that he did not know exactly when the Hour of judgment would come and its knowledge was with Allah alone (7:187) ; that he had no knowledge of the unseen - ghaib - beyond that which Allah had told him (6:50 ; 7:188 ; 10:20) ; that he had no power to control any benefit or harm to himself except as Allah please (7:188) ; that he did not in his power to cause them evil or bring them good (72:21) that he could not guide every  one whom he loved and it is Allah Who gives guidance (28:56) ; and that he could not change the revelation received by him from Allah (10:15 ; 7:203). There are a number of other to show that the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him) did not claim to posses any supernatural powers of his own

Islam (part2)

The point that Islam is a religion of peace, and the waging of war for converting people is not allowed in Islam, will be dealt with more fully later while explaining the true significance of the term ''Jihad'' ; but we many mention here that  the age-old calumny that Islam spread by the sword is now being refuted, not by Muslims, but by enlightened and unbiased non-Muslims, and even by some of the bitterest critics of Islam, who have given their own reasons for the phenomenal spread of Islam. It may be interesting to give a few quotation here :- 
Edward Gibbon, in his book ''The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire'' Observes : A pernicious tenet has been imputed to the Muhammadans, the duty of extirpating all other religions by the sword. This charge of ignorance and bigotry is refuted by the Koran, By the History of the Musalman conquerors, and by their public and legal toleration of the christian worship'' (op. cit. Vol. 6, page 40).
Will Durant in his ''The age of Faith'' has this to say :- ''Despite or because of this policy of tolerance in early Islam, the new faith won over to itself in time most of the Christians, nearly all the Zoroastrians and pagans, and many of the Jews, of Asia, Egypt and North Africa....From China, Indonesia, and India through Persia, Syria, Arabia, and Egypt to Morocco and Spain, The Muhammadan faith touched the heart and fancies of a hundred of peopled, governed their morals and molded their lives, gave them consoling hopes and strengthening pride..'' (op. cit. page 219).
Another writer, Jean L'heureux in his book: ''Etude sur L'Islamisme'' has observed : ''Islam had the power of peacefully conquering souls by the simplicity of its theology, the clearness of its dogma and principles, and the definite number of the practices which it demands...'' (op. cit. page 35).
Even a critic like H.G. Wells had to admit that : "Islam established in the world a great tradition of dignified fair-dealing and created a society more free from wide-spread cruelty and social oppression than any society had been in the world before". (The Outline of History, page 325).
Arnold Toynbee too has, in his book ''Civilization on Trial" admitted that racial intolerance and antipathy are wholly absent is the Islamic Civilization, whatever the racial stock of its adherents. Some of his actual observation are :- "Islam's creative gift to mankind is monotheism and we surely dare not throw this gift away.....Islam remains, with a mighty spiritual mission still to carry out......in the struggle with each of these evils (race consciousness and alcohol) the Islamic spirit has a service to render which might prove, If it were accepted, to be of high moral and social value. The extinction of race consciousness as between Muslims is one of the outstanding moral achievements of Islam...." (op. cit. see page 87,88, 205-209).
Islam A Complete Code of Life
Islam is not merely a system of faith and worship, rites and ceremonials, but it is a complete code governing every aspect of man's life on this earth ; and that is why a Muslim is asked to enter into Islam whole-heartedly.
Muslims Required to Believe In Previous Apostles and Earlier Scriptures
Islam has the distinction of being the only religion in the world whose followers are required to believe not only in Allah, Who is proclaimed to be the Lord and Cherisher of all the worlds, and in the last of the Prophets , Hazrat Muhammad(PBUH) but also to believe in all the previous apostles and to make no distinction between one and another of Allah's apostles ; and to believe not only in the Holy Qur'an revealed by Allah to the Holy Prophet, but also in all the previous scriptures.
Certain Other Distinctive Features of Islam
Islam is the only religion in which there are no divinely ordained, or formally canonized, priests ; and the Muslim society is not divided into two distinct classes - the clergy and the laity. According to the Holy Qur'an, Allah is nearer to man than his jugular vein (50 : 16) ; He has declared:.... ''I am indeed close (to them); I listen to the prayer of every suppliant when He called on Me..." (2 : 186). Every one has direct access to Allah ; and, there is, therefore, no need for any intermediary.
Then, There is no monasticism in Islam (57 : 27).
Further, there is no colour bar in Islam ; there is no discrimination of any sort based on race, nationality, language, colour of one's skin etc. the only distinction is that of piety and righteousness (49 : 13). All are Equal.
The Holy Book declares : ''The believers are but a single brotherhood..." (49 : 10). Every Muslim is a brother of every other Muslim.

That all these precepts are actually acted upon will be clear from a perusal of what follows.

Islam

Islam
Total Submission to God

In its primary sense the word Islam, which is derived from 'Aslama' signifies submission to the will of God Almighty. That such submission should be total  and complete is specifically demanded by Allah :- ''O ye who believe ! Enter into Islam whole heatedly...'' (2 : 208). A Muslim is required to submit his whole self to Allah ; And devotion to Allah must be completely pure and sincere. Any one who enters into the fold of Islam, or claims to be a Muslim, has to obey Allah in all matters: Acceptance of some of Hits commands and non-acceptance of others is simply out of the question.
Islam God Given Name
Islam is undoubtedly the last of the revealed religions ; But it was not the Last of God's Prophets, Hazrat Muhammad (May Allah's peace and blessings be on him) who devised this name for the religion preached by him. It is Allah Who has conferred this name on us.

Religion Perfected by GOD
'.....This day have I perfected your religion for you, complete My favour upon you and have chosen for you Islam as your religion....''(5 : 4).....''He has chosen you, and has imposed no difficulties on you religion; it is the cult of your father, Ibrahim. It is He Who has named you Muslims, both before and in this (Revelation), that the apostle may be a witness for you, and ye be witness for mankind...'' (22 : 78).
No Other Religion Acceptable to God
Not only was the name of the religion conferred by Allah, but it has been declared that :- '' The religion before Allah is Islam (Submission to His will)...'' (3 : 19); and that :- '' If any one desires a religion other than Islam (Submission to Allah), never will it be accepted of him; and in the hereafter he will be in the ranks of those who have lost (All spiritual good)'' (3 : 85).
Islam-God's Light- To Prevail
Islam which is metaphorically alluded to as Allah's Light ( 9:32 ; 61:8 ), is described as the religion of truth-Din-il-Haqq-(9:33 ; 48:28 ; 61:9), which is to prevail over all religion (ibid).
Muslim Best of Peoples, Enjoining Right, forbidding Evil
Muslims have been declared to be a ''Justly balanced'' people (Ummatan wasata- 2: 143); '' The best of people (Khaira Ummatin) evolved for mankind, enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong, and believing in Allah...'' (3 : 110). These two verses not only confer a signal honour, but also impose a very onerous duty, on the Muslims.
Religion of Previous Apostles too was Islam
Islam is not a new-fangled concept, or an exotic doctrine. and we are told :- '' The same religion has He(Allah) established for you as that which He enjoined on Nuh-the which we have sent by inspiration to the (Holy Prophet)-and that which We enjoined on Ibrahim(A.S), Musa(A.S) and Isa(A.S), namely that ye should remain steadfast in religion, and make no division therein....'' (42 ; 13). According to the Holy Qur'an, all the previous apostles Nuh, Ibrahim, Isma'ill, Is-haq, Ya'qub, Lut, Yusuf, Musa and Isa were Muslims. The Holy Prophet was commanded to be the first of the Muslims (6:163 ; 27:91 ; 39:12). Islam claims to be a universal religion ; and the mission of the Holy Prophet was universal (4:170 ; 7:158 ; 14:1 ; 22:49 ; 34:28).
Difference Between Entering Islam and Unshakable Faith
There is a great difference between embracing Islam and having an unshakable faith (49 : 14) ; and the desert Arabs ere told that their entering Islam was no favour to the Holy Prophet ; on the contrary, Allah had conferred a favour upon them by guiding them to the faith (49 : 17).
No Forcible Conversion ; No Compulsion

Forcible conversion to Islam has been definitely forbidden by Allah :- ''Let there be no compulsion in religion; truth stands out clearly from error ; whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold that never breaks ; and Allah heareth and knoweth all things'' (2 : 256).  (cont)

TAWAF



TAWAF. means going round the Ka'ba, seven times in the prescribed manner after performing Wudu and with the Niyat  of ibadat (worship of Allah). Each of the seven circuits is called SHAUT. Tawaf takes the place of Tahiyyat-ul-Masjid, and Tawaf  is held to be letter than Nafl prayers. One can perform other acts of worship anywhere in the world; but Tawaf can only be performed around the Holy Ka'ba n Mecca. Labbaik is stopped when Tawaf is commenced. There are several kinds of Tawaf :-(a) Tawaf-i-Ziyarat also called Tawaf-i-Ifada or Tawaf-i-Rukn is a component (Rukn) of Hajj and is obligatory (fard) and must be performed between the Subh Sadiq(real dawn) of 10th Zilhij and upto and  including the 12th Zilhij. (b) Tawaf-i-Umra is obligatory (fard) for those performing 'Umra. It must be performed with Ramal and idtiba and before the performance of Sa'yi. (c) Tawaf-i-Wida' or Tawaf-i-Sadr. This is the Tawaf performed at the time of departure and is Wajib for Afaqis, i.e. all those living outside the Mawaqit. (d) Tawaf-i-Qudum is the Tawaf performed on entering Masjid-il-Haram by those Afaqis who perform  Hajj by the method of Ifrad or Qiran. It is Sunnat . (e) Tawaf-un-Nafl. Any Tawaf, other than the the preceding four categories, is called a Nafli Tawaf. There is no restriction as to time or number of such Nafli Tawafs, but all must be performed after Wudu and Niyat and in the prescribed manner.


HAJR-I-ASWAD is a small black Stone built into the south-eastern corner of Baitullah at a height of some four feet. The stone has a silver frame around it. According to tradition, this precious stone originally came from paradise and was milky white and has become black because of the sins of the people. Mention of this has been made earlier. This holy stone was touched and kissed by Ibrahim (A.S) and by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be Upon Him). Its kissing is symbolical  of our love of Allah and our resolve to obey Him in all matters. 'Hazrat Umar (R.A), while kissing the Hajr-i-Aswad, once said :- ''Verily I know that thou art a stone ; thou dost no good or harm in the world ; and if it was not that i saw the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be Upon Him) kiss thee, I would not kiss thee''.


ISTILAM. The act of kissing the Hajr-i-Aswad is called Istilam. The Palms of both hands are placed on it, with the face between the two palms, and the stone is kissed gently in such a way that no sound is emitted. If, owing to the crowd, it is not possible to kiss the stone in this manner, it may merely be touched with the right hand and the hand kissed ; or it may be touched with a stick, or if that is not possible, one may simply make a sign, by raising the two palms towards the Hajr-i-Aswad and kissing the palms. Each Tawaf starts from the Hajr-i-Aswad.

THE SUNNATS OF HAJJ

THE SUNNATS OF HAJJ


The Sunnats of Hajj are :- (1) Tawaf-uQudum (i.e. the circumambulation of the Holy Ka'ba on entry into Mecca) for those pilgrims who come from beyond the Mawaqit and are Afaqi and who performed the Hajj by the method of Ifrad or Qiran ; (2) Doing Ramal in Tawaf-i-Qudum, or if not done in this Tawaf, then in Tawaf-i-Ziyarat or Tawaf-i-Wida' ; (3) The delivery of three Khutbas (sermons) by the Imam- on the 10th Zilhij in Mecca ; on the 9th in Masjid Namra before the combining of the prayers (Jama' bain-us-salatain) ; and on the 11th in Mina; (4) Spending the night of the 9th in Mina ; (5) Leaving Mina after sun-rise on the 9th for Arafat ; (6) Leaving Arafat after the departure of the Imam ; (7) Staying the night at Muzdalifa on return from Arafat ; (8) Taking a bath in Arafat ; (9) Spending the nights at Mina during the halt at that place ; (10) Staying for however short a time it may be at Muhassab while returning to Mecca from Mina. There is great spiritual reward (sawab) in the performance of the foregoing Sunnats ; but if any of these cannot be performed, there in so penalty ; but it is reprehensible to ignore these Sunnats deliberately.




Najasat Ghaleezah



A part from excreta or the waste discharged from the animal body, e.g. faeces, stools, and urine, animal dung, and bird droppings, which are regarded as filth by all, the other impurities called Najasat Ghaleezah recognized by Islam are semen, seminal discharges, flowing blood, human as well as animal, pus, swine (everything pertaining to it - meat, blood, bone, skin, urine, etc.,) and wine, which are included in the definition of Najasat Ghaleezah. If the smallest quantity of Najasat Ghaleezah is put, or falls, in water,or any article of food or drink, the whole of it is polluted and becomes unclean and unfit for us by a Muslim. If some Najasat Ghaleezah falls on one's clothes, the same must be removed and the spot where it had fallen must be washed three times, squeezing the cloth each time. Similarly, if some Najasat Ghaleezah falls on some carpet, durry e.t.c., it should be removed and the portion on which it had fallen should be washed three times. There are detailed rules for cleansing wells and purifying the water if some Najasat Ghaleezah falls into a well, or some human being or some animal falls into a well and dies. While dog is not specifically included in the definition of Najasat Ghaleezah, dog is considered unclean and cannot be taken into a mosque. (Dog's meat is of course as unlawful as pork).

Five Pillars Of Islam

Five Pillars Of Islam



There is a saying of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon Him) to the effect that the edifice of Islam rests on five pillars:- (1) a firm declaration that there is no God except Allah and that Muhammad (peace be upon Him) is His servant and His apostle ; (2) the keeping up of prayers (Salat) ; (3) the payment of obligatory charity. or poor-rate (Zakat) ; (4) the performance of pilgrimage of Mecca (Hajj) ; and (5) keeping of fast during the month of Ramadan (Saum). The four fundamental institutions of Islam are thus:- 1. Salat. 2. Zakat. 3. Saum. 4. Hajj. There is also a fifth religious duty of the Muslims and that is Jihad.

Their Purpose


The aim of these fundamental institutions of Islam is to make a man realize the presence of Allah and make him God-conscious and God-fearing ; to refine his thoughts ; to mould his character ; to purify his heart ; to elevate him morally ; and to enable him to discharge faithfully his responsibilities and duties, not only to Allah, but also to Allah's creatures. In all these religious institutions there is punctuality, regularity, methods, orderliness, uniformity and an exhibition of complete equality.

Supreme Importance of Salat

Supreme Importance of Salat


According to a tradition of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon Him), the first thing made obligaroty on his followers by Allah was Salat, and that on the Day of Judgment the first thin a man shall have to answer for is Salat. The first duty enjoined on the Holy prophet (peace be upon Him) him self was Salat. The word ''As-Salat'' occurs 67 times in the Qur'an ; and there are a large number of derivatives. The Holy Qur'an has laid the greatest emphasis on the keeping up of prayers ; and no other injunction has been repeated so many times as the one relating to Salat. The injunction regarding the payment of Zakat is frequently mentioned along with that relating to prayers ; but Salat in the Holy Quran it would edifice of Din (religion) rests. Zakat in not payable by each and every one ; nor is the performance of Hajj obligatory on every Muslim. Fasting is obligatory only during the month of Ramadan and that too if a man is not traveling or is  not ill. But the saying of prayers five times a day is absolutely compulsory for all adult males and females, whether at home or traveling, whether  in good health or ill, in peace or at war.

Khutba Hajjatul Wada (part 2)

''Behold, all practice of the days of ignorance is now under my feet. The blood revenges of the days of ignorance are remitted.....All interest and usurious dues accruing from the times of ignorance stand wipes out......

''O people, verily your blood, your property and your honor are sacred and inviolable until you appear before your Lord, as the sacred inviolability of this day of yours (i.e. the 9th Zil-Hajj, the Day of Hajj), this months of yours (i.e Zil-hajj which fighting was prohibited) and this town of yours (the sacred territory of Mecca). Verily you will meet your Lord and you will be held answerable for your actions...

''O people, verily you have got certain rights over your women and your women have certain rights over you. It is your right upon them to honor their conjugal rights, and not to commit acts of impropriety, which if they do, you are authorized by Allah to separate them from your beds and chastise them properly. Behold it is not permissible for a women to give anything from the wealth of her husband to any one but with his consent. Treat the woman kindly, since they are your helpers and they are not in a position to manage their affairs themselves. Fear Allah concerning women, for verily you have taken them on the security of Allah and have made their persons lawful unto you by the words of Allah.

''O people, Allah the Mighty and Exalted has ordained every one his due share (of inheritance). Hence there is no need (of special) testament for an heir (departing from the rules laid down by the Shariah)....

''All debts must be repaid ; all borrowed property must be returned ; gifts should be reciprocated, and a surety must make good the loss to assured.

''Beware ! no one committing a crime is responsible for it but himself. Neither the child is responsible for the crime of his father, not the father is responsible for the crime of his child......

''Nothing of his brother is lawful for a Muslim except what he himself given willingly, So do not wrong yourselves.

''O people, every Muslim is the brother of other Muslim and all the Muslims from one brotherhood.

''And your slaves ! see that you feed them with such food as you eat yourselves, and clothe them with the clothes that you yourselves wear.

''Take heed not to go astray after me and strike one another's necks.

''He who (amongst you) has any trust with him, he must return it to its owner.

''O people, Listen and obey, through a mangled Abyssinian slave is appointed your Amir, provided he executes (the Ordinances of) the Book of Allah among you.

''O people ! no prophet would be raised after me, and no new Ummat (would be formed after) you.

''Verily I have left amongst you that which will never lead you astray, the Book of Allah, which if you hold fast, you shall never go astray.

''And beware of transgressing the limits set in the matters of religion, for it is transgression of (the proper bounds of) religion that brought destruction to (many people) before you.

''Verily the Satan is disappointed at ever being worshiped in this land of yours, but if obedience in anything (short of worship is expected that is) ; he will be pleased in matters you may be disposed to think insignificant ; so beware of him in your matters of religion.

''Behold, worship your Lord ; offer prayers five time a day ; observe fast in the month of Ramazan ; pay readily the Zakat (poor-due) on your property ; and perform pilgrimage to the House of God, and obey your rules, and you will be admitted to the paradise of your Lord.

''Let him that is present convey it to him who is absent ; for many people to whom the message is conveyed may be more mindful of it than he audience.

''And if you were asked about me, what would you say?''

They answered : We bear witness  that you have conveyed the trust (of religion) and discharged your ministry of apostle-hood looked to our welfare''.

Thereupon Allah's messenger (may peace be upon him) lifted his fore-finger towards the sky and then pointing towards the people said: ''O Lord ! bear Thou witness unto it. O Lord ! bear Thou witness unto it. O Lord ! bear Thou witness unto it''.

The Holy Prophet's ''Khutba Hajjatul Wada'' shows that the Holy Prophet knew that he was nearing the end of his Mission and of his earthly existence, and that his was going to be his last Hajj and his last sermon on such an occasion.

It was on this occasion that the last revelation :- ''This day have I (Allah) perfected your religion for you and completed My favour upon you and have chosen for you Islam as your religion'' (5 :4) was received by the Holy Prophet. It clearly showed that the Holy Prophet had completed his Mission and that the religion (Islam) had been perfected. Sura Nasr (S. No. 110)

Khutba Hajjatul Wada


 "Khutba Hajjatul Wada"


It can legitimately be called the First Universal Declaration, or charter, of Human Rights. The Holy Prophet's "Khutba Hajjatul Wada" is recorded in the most authentic books of Ahadis and Muslim history. "He was on camel, and the people around ham represented every Arabian tribe and clan. He spoke slowly, and his words were repeated aloud by others, and thus reached the farthest end of the assembly". the Holy Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be on him) declared at the outset that sovereighty belongs to Allah, Who is One and has no partners of any sort. He next declared that we are all children of Adam and that all are equal; that no distinction or privilege can be claimed on the basis of one's race, nationality or color of one's skin; and that the only criterion for honor is piety, righteousness and fear of Allah. The Holy Prophet further declared that Muslims are all brothers; and he declared the inviolability of the lives, honour and property of every one. He declared as remitted all payments on account of blood revenges and usury. He enjoined that all debts must be repaid and all borrowed property returned. He declared that a child shall not be responsible for the crime committed by his father, and vice versa. He forbade wrongful acquisition of an other's property.In his sermon the Holy Prophet (PBUH) laid special emphasis on the rights of women and enjoined that they must be treated with kindness and liberality. He made the slave equal, in the matter of food and clothing, with his master.

H. G. Wells in his book ''The Outline of History'' has called the Khutba Hajjatul Wada as a ''Great Sermon'' and has pointed out that.....''The first paragraph sweeps away all plunder and blood feuds among the followers of Islam. The last makes the believing Negro the equal of the Caliph...they established in the world a great tradition of dignified fair dealing, they breathe a spirit of generosity, and they are human and workable. They created a society more free from widespread cruelty and social oppression than any society had ever been in the world before''.
Abstract English Translation of The Khutba
In view of the supreme importance of the Holy Prophet's last sermon. an English translation of portions of the Khutba is given below :-
''All praise is due to Allah.....I bear witness that there is no God but Allah, the One having no partner with Him. His is the sovereignty and to Him is due all praise. He grants life and causes death and is Powerful over everything. There is no God but Allah, the One ; He fulfilled His promise and granted victory to His bondsman (the Holy Prophet), and He alone routed the confederates (of the enemies of Islam).

''Ye people, listen to my words, for I know not whether another year will be vouchsafed to me after this year to find myself amongst you...O ye people, Allah says : ''O people We created you from one male and one female and made you into tribes and nations, so as to be known to one another. Verily in the sight of Allah , the most Honorable amongst you is the one who is most God-fearing''. There is no superiority for an Arab over a non-Arab and for a non-Arab over an Arab, nor for the white over the black nor for the black over the white, except God consciousness. All mankind is the progeny of Adam and Adam was fashioned out of clay. Behold every claim of privilege whether that of blood or property, is under my heels except that of the custody of the Ka'ba and supplying of water to the pilgrims. O people of Quraish, do not appear (on the Day of Judgment) with the burden of this world around your neck ''whereas other people may appear (before the Lord) with the rewards of the Hereafter. In that case I shall avail you naught against Allah. (to be cont)

Ummahat ul Momineen - The Wives of Prophet Muhammad(PBUH)

KHADIJA                                                                                                                                         

The Holy Prophet's first marriage with Khadija,  who was his only wife for the twenty-five years of his youth and manhood. The Holy Prophet was fifty years of ago, or a little older, when Khadija died.

MARRIAGES NOT FOR GRATIFICATION OF SENSUAL APPETITE
According to the most authentic reports, the life of Muhammad (P.B.U.H) prior to his first marriage with Khadija was absolutely chaste and pure ; and even his enemies have testified to this. The pagans offered him not only riches and a kingdom, but also the most beautiful girls ; but he spurned the offer. During his youth and manhood, he proved a faithful and ideal husband. He was 50 years old, or somewhat older, when he married a second time; and all his subsequent marriages were at an advanced age.
