THE LEGENT - Muhammad Ali

I believe in the religion of Islam. I believe in Allah and peace.

Rivers, ponds, lakes and streams - they all have different names, but they all contain water. Just as religions do - they all contain truths.

Age is whatever you think it is. You are as old as you think you are.

A man who views the world the same at fifty as he did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life.

Boxing is a lot of white men watching two black men beat each other up.

He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.

Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.

Friendship... is not something you learn in school. But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything.

History Of Makkah

The establishment of Makkah:

The history and building of Makkah is directly connected to Prophet Ibraaheem  may  Allaah  exalt  his  mention as he was the first person to settle his family in it when he left his wife Haajar and his son Ismaa’eel  may  Allaah  exalt  his  mention there in compliance with the command of Allaah for him to do so.

Imaam Al-Bukhaari  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him reported on the authority of Ibn ‘Abbaas  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  him in the long narration in which the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) informed us that Ibraaheem  may  Allaah  exalt  his  mention once came with his wife Haajar and his son Ismaa’eel  may  Allaah  exalt  his  mention who was still a suckling infant, from ancient Syria to Makkah. At that time, Makkah had no water and nobody residing in it. Ibraaheem  may  Allaah  exalt  his  mention took them both under the shade of a tree and left with them a bag of dates and a flask of water, then headed back to ancient Syria. As he was leaving, his wife Haajar called to him, saying: “Where are you going? How can you leave us in this deserted valley that has neither humans nor anything else (in terms of life)?” She repeated this a few times but he did not reply, so she asked: “Did Allaah command you to do this?” Ibraaheem  may  Allaah  exalt  his  mention replied: “Yes” Thereupon she said: “Then He shall never forsake us”.

Ibraaheem  may  Allaah  exalt  his  mention walked for a while and then stood upon a small hill, raised his hands in supplication, and said, as Allaah informs us saying (what means): “Our Lord! I have settled some of my descendants in an uncultivated valley near Your sacred House, our Lord, that they may establish prayer. So make hearts among the people incline toward them and provide for them from the fruits that they might be grateful.” [Quran 14:37]

Allaah blessed Haajar and her son with the well of Zamzam, and then people came from all directions and resided in Makkah. The first tribe to reside there was the tribe of Jurhum among whom Ismaa’eel  may  Allaah  exalt  his  mention grew up and from whom he married.

Ibraaheem  may  Allaah  exalt  his  mention came many times to Makkah to check upon their condition, and later Allaah commanded him to build the Ka’bah; Allaah says (what means): “And [mention] when Ibraaheem (Abraham) was raising the foundations of the House and [with him] Ismaa’eel (Ishmael), [saying]: 'Our Lord! Accept [this] from us. Indeed, You are the Hearing, the Knowing.'” [Quran 2:127]

Allaah also says (what means): “And [O Muhammad], when We designated for Ibraaheem (Abraham) the site of the House, [saying] “Do not associate anything with Me and purify My House for those who perform Tawaaf (circumambulation of the Ka’bah) and those who stand [in prayer] and those who bow and prostrate.” [Quran 22:26]

islam and muslims in Japan / Japanese Muslims-

Happiness is the only goal on earth that all people without exception are seeking to attain. Believers and unbelievers alike seek to be happy, but each party is using different methods.

However, only believers can achieve genuine happiness. All forms of happiness attained without a firm belief in God, the Almighty, are mere illusions.

The following are tips for the attainment of happiness:

1. Know that if you do not live within the scope of today, your thoughts will be scattered, your affairs will become confused, and your anxiety will increase. These realities are explained in the following hadith:

"When you are in the evening, do not expect to see themorning, and when you are in the morning, do not expect to see the evening." (Saheeh Al-Bukhari)

2. Forget the past and all that it contained, focus on the present.

3. Do not completely preoccupy yourself with the future and then discard the present. Be balanced in life, prepare yourself adequately for all situations.

4. Do not be shaken by criticism; instead, be firm. Be sure that in proportion to your worth, the level of people's criticism rises. Also, make good use of criticism in discovering your shortcomings and faults, and let it drive you toward self-improvement.

5. Have complete faith in God and perform good deeds; these are the ingredients that makeup a good and happy life.

6. If you desire peace, tranquility, and comfort, you can find it all in the remembrance of God.

7. You should know with certainty that everything that happens, occurs in accordance with the divine decree.

8. Do not expect gratitude from anyone.

9. Train yourself to be prepared for the worst possibility.

10. Perhaps what has happened is in your best interest, even though you may not comprehend how that can be so.

11. Everything that is decreed for the believer is the best for him.

12. Enumerate the blessings of God and be thankful for them.

13. Remember that you are better off than many others.

14. Relief comes from one hour to the next. Indeed, with each difficulty there is relief.

15. In both times of hardship and ease, one should turn to supplication and prayer, either patiently contented or thankful.

16. Calamities should strengthen your heart and reshape your outlook in a positive way.

17. Do not let trivialities be the cause of your destruction.

18. Always remember that your God is Oft-Forgiving.

19. Assume an easy-going attitude and avoid anger.

20. Life is bread, water, and shade; so do not be perturbed by a lack of any other material thing.

"And in the heaven is your providence and that which you are promised." (Quran 51:22)

21. A daunting evil that seemingly will happen usually never occurs.

22. Look at those who have more afflictions and be grateful that you have less.

23. Bear in mind the fact that God loves those who endure trials with steadfastness, so seek to be one of them.

24. Constantly repeat those supplications that the Prophet, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, taught us to say during times of hardship.

25. Work hard at something that is productive, and cast off idleness.

26. Do not spread rumors and do not listen to them. If you hear a rumor inadvertently, do not believe it.

27. Know that your malice and your striving to seek revenge are much more harmful to your health than they are to your antagonist.

28. The hardships that befall you atone for your sins, if you endure with patience.
