HADITH 38
On the authority of Abu Hurairah, who said: the messenger of Allah said:

Allah the Almighty has said: “Whosoever shows enmity to a friend of Mine, I shall be at war with him.

My servant does not draw near to Me with anything more loved by Me than the religious duties I have imposed upon him, and My servant continues to draw near to Me with supererogatory works so that I shall love him. When I love him I am his hearing with which he hears, his seeing with which he sees, his hand with which he strikes, and his foot with which he walks. Were he to ask [something] of Me, I would surely give it to him and were he to ask Me for refuge, I would surely grant him it.”
-related by Bukhari.

HADITH 35
On the authority of Abu Hurairah, who said : the messenger of Allah said :
“Do not envy one another; do not inflate prices one to another; do not hate one another; do not turn away from one another; and do not undercut one another, but be you, O servants of Allah, brothers. A muslim is the brother of a muslim: he neither oppresses him nor does he fail him, he neither lies to him nor does he hold him in contempt. Piety is right here-and he pointed to his breast three times. It is evil enough for a man to hold his brother muslim in contempt. The whole of a muslim for another muslim is inviolable: his blood, his property, and his honor.”

-HADITH 25
On the authority of Abu Hurairah, who said: The messenger of Allah said :
“Each person’s every joint must perform a charity every day the sun comes up : to act justly between two people is a charity; to help a man with his mount, lifting him onto it or hoistingd up his belongings onto it is a charity: a good word is a charity, every step you take to prayers is a charity and removing a harmful thing from the road is a charity.”

Hadith

Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “The Hour will not be established until the son of Mary (i.e. Jesus) descends amongst you as a just ruler. He will break the cross (to signify that he was never crucified), kill the pigs (to signify that he never broke the law of Moses), and abolish the Jizya tax. Money will be in abundance so that nobody will accept it (as charitable gifts).

thoughts ..

I actually think we’re (just finally) past the days where islam (as a faith) is considered “alternative” and outlandish.

islam used to be viewed as weird, and way out there…

But I think these days, it’s finally looked at by the technical majority (51% of people) as a religion–no different, more or less, than other religions.

Insha Allah,  there will come a time when it will be looked at by the vast majority as the faith that it is–the natural inclination of humankind–the continuation of the way of life of previous prophets (Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and all others).

I think during prophet Jesus’ second coming is the point in which everyone will accept Islam. Because he will come, and (as a mighty prophet of Allah) establish justice on Earth, defeat the antichrist…and there will be a period of time until his death of great peace (under the submission of Allah). (This has to do with the end times.)

Surat Ibrahim (the chapter called “Abraham” (from the noble Qur’an)

*****

The Last Few Verses of the chapter —

Think not that Allah doth not heed the deeds of those who do wrong. He but giveth them respite against a Day when the eyes will fixedly stare in horror,-

They running forward with necks outstretched, their heads uplifted, their gaze returning not towards them, and their hearts a (gaping) void!

So warn mankind of the Day when the Wrath will reach them: then will the wrong-doers say: “Our Lord! respite us (if only) for a short term: we will answer Thy call, and follow the messengers!” What! were ye not wont to swear aforetime that ye should suffer no decline?

“And ye dwelt in the dwellings of men who wronged their own souls; ye were clearly shown how We dealt with them; and We put forth (many) parables in your behoof!”

Mighty indeed were the plots which they made, but their plots were (well) within the sight of Allah, even though they were such as to shake the mountains!

Never think that Allah would fail his messengers in His promise: for Allah is Exalted in power, – the Lord of Retribution.

One day the earth will be changed to a different earth, and so will be the heavens, and (men) will be marshalled forth, before Allah, the One, the Irresistible;

And thou wilt see the sinners that day bound together in fetters;-

Their garments of liquid pitch, and their faces covered with Fire;

That Allah may requite each soul according to its deserts; and verily Allah is swift in calling to account.

Here is a Message for mankind: Let them take warning therefrom, and let them know that He is (no other than) One Allah: let men of understanding take heed.

-Qur’an. 14: 42-52
Yusuf Ali translation.
