special, a direct gift fromAllaah. And yet we often takeit for granted. We don’t prayon time, or we don’t pray atall. Why don’t we give ourSalaah the attention it deserves?We don’t realize how impor-tant it is. Allaah broughtProphet Muhammad (S.A.W)on a journey from Mecca toJerusalem and through theheavens to give him the gift ofSalaah. Allah chose to speakdirectly to the Prophet (S.A.W)about Salaah. In comparison,the whole Qur’aan was re-vealed to Prophet Muhammad(S.A.W) through Angel

Gabriel here on earth. AndJibraeel had to stop and send theProphet (S.A.W) onward to meetAllaah directly; the Angel was notallowed to go that far. Not evenAngel Gabriel was between Allaahand the Prophet (S.A.W) whenhe received the gift of Salaah. Atfirst, Allaah commanded that weshould pray 50 times a day!That’s how important prayer is!Eventually the number was low-ered to 5 times a day with theblessings of 50 times. Whyaren’t we serious about ourSalaah? All the prophets prayedto Allaah. Even today, some Or-thodox Jews prostrate duringprayer, and many Christianskneel. But the format of our

prayer is unique. It is a com-bination of different positionsof prayer that the prophetspracticed with additionalmovements. After Imaan,Salaah is most important.Imaan is internal, not visible,but our Salaah is physicalevidence of our faith in God.Salaah is like the head of thehuman body, and withoutSalaah a man is a dead manwalking, or spiritually dead.The Prophet (S.A.W) saidthat missing just one prayeris like losing one’s entirefamily and possessions. Andon the day of judgment, thevery first question will beabout our Salaah. In Chap-ter 2 Verse 277of the HolyQur’aan, Allaah says:“Those who believe and dorighteous deeds, and estab-lish regular prayers and regu-lar charity, will have their re-ward with their Lord: onthem shall be no fear nor shallthey grieve.” Salaah shoulddefinitely be our priority! Weshould educate ourselves toensure we know everythingabout Salaah. The compan-ions asked the Prophet(S.A.W) why he spent somuch time in optional prayer.His feet were swollen fromstanding. He couldn’t pos-sibly have sins! The Prophet(S.A.W) explained, “ShouldI not at least thank Allaah forthe bounties He has given?”Many of us want to study thehighest levels of Islam with-out understanding the foun-dation which is Salaah.

I would like to offer my friends at DarulUloom and throughout the Muslim commu-nity a Ramadan Kareem. Ramadan is atime when Muslims are reminded of thefact that God is a generous God. Too of-ten in our world we forget that the joys wehave in life are blessings from God. Our

families, the friends that we have, our successes in life, ourhealth, the food that we eat—we take these blessings forgranted. The season of Ramadan reminds Muslims that noneof these blessings should be taken for granted. And Islam’sbeautiful rituals of prayer and fasting are a superb way ofremembering those blessings. By fasting during the day youdeprive yourselves of our basic instinct to eat. When youhave the opportunity to replenish you bodies in the eveningonce again you have the opportunity to be grateful to God forfood. And it is important during that evening meal to remem-ber the food as God’s blessings. Jewish tradition affirms thesame concepts. At every meal Jewish tradition teaches us tooffer a prayer of thanks before eating. But thanking Goddoes not end with the meal. It would be easy enough tothank God when we are hungry for the food we are about toeat, and once we have eaten, no longer feeling in need, wemight decide to forget that our nourishing meal was fromGod.

The real distinction between shariah andfiqh, however, is that shariah is the lawitself, while fiqh is a knowledge of thatlaw - its jurisprudence.

Continued on Page 34, Inshaa Allaah

the authority to enact laws primarily belongs to God and Healone has the supreme legislative power. He has promulgatedlaws since the beginning through His messengers (Rasul) andprophets (Ambiya) through a succession of revelations ac-cording to the needs of time e.g laws relating to marriagehave changed since times of Adam. As the laws previouslyrevealed had been corrupted Muhammad (P.B.U.H) was sentwith a mission to preach Islam and belief in him was estab-lished. The word of God was thus revealed through ProphetMuhammad (P.B.U.H) and the revelations are contained inthe book called the Qur‘an. Hadith or Traditions are the in-spired precepts of the Prophet (S.A.W) in matters of law andreligion. In other words the Qur’aan and the Sunnah are theprimary sources.

Assalamu alaikum: I stumbled across a touching narrativewhich served as a reminder to me towards my duties to Allah(SWT) and humanity. I would like to share it with you be-cause many times we often get caught up with our worldly“life schedule”. We are so consumed with taking care ofourselves and the needs of our family that we may not re-member to put aside time on a consistent basis to give toothers who are less fortunate and needy. Sometimes we onlygive charity at a certain time of the year (Ramadan, Eid ulAdha, or when there is a disaster and groups are reachingout to appeal for aid). While these are indeed important in-stances to give charity; we should be consistent in giving aid,being charitable and offering goodwill. The following storyentails doing good now, knowing that your kindness may helpsomeone at some time, somewhere. Story: We enter a littlecoffeehouse with a friend of mine and give our order. Whilewe’re approaching our table two people come in and they goto the counter: Five coffees, please, two of them for us and“three suspended’. They pay for their order, take the twoand leave. I ask my friend: “What are those ‘suspended’coffees?” My friend: “Wait for it and you will see.” Somemore people enter. Continued on Page 29, Inshaa Allaah

and the end of prophet hood are its an-cient and absolute principals. TheSharia is old as well as modern for eachera as well; meaning it fulfills the needs/demands of all times. It is an authenticrule of the Islamic Law that whateveris not declared Haraam (forbidden) isHalaal (allowed). It is apparently a vastfield left open for all human beings. Forexample, haram things have been toldto us and then the rest is halaal. In theHoly Qur’aan, Allaah (SWT) admon-ished the Jews for making those thingsharam that were declared halaal byAllaah (SWT). Shaikh Ahmad Sarhindi(Mujaddid Alf Sani) has stated time andagain in his teachings that we must staysilent (don’t argue) about the areaswherein the Sharia is also silent and tokeep in mind that only that action/thing

is prohibited that which has been ex-pressly forbidden. In modern times,many people think (falsely) that what-ever is not mentioned in Sunnah(teachings of the Holy Prophet(SAW), is prohibited. Not only this isfalse, it is also very dangerous. Forone, we know there is no compulsionin Islam and it is fully supported bythe Holy Prophet (SAW) teachings,but it is being presented as hard anddifficult to follow. Second, this thoughtis escalating tensions among the manythus causing divisions among the Mus-lims. Third, and finally and most im-portantly, it is causing a diversion fromthe important principals of Islam forthe Muslim Ummah. Let’s keep inmind that in our lives, we performFard actions first and Sunnahs after.After Sunnahs, follow Mustahabb(recommended), Mubaah (neither for-bidden nor recommended) and thenMakrooh (disliked). After all these,comes the field of Haraam (forbid-den). Now, think about these stepsbefore we even reach Haraam.Continued on Page 34, Inshaa Allaah

Islam In Suriname, Past, Present, and FutureParamaribo, Suriname South America

By: H.M. Abdul Karriem Van Leesten

Sur Masjid Ittefaaq-Ul-IslamI recently cameback fromSuriname, SouthAmerica and had awonderful experi-ence as usual. I en-joy visiting thecountry for threereasons: the 1st be-cause it is my pater-nal ancestral home-land and I get tovisit my family, thesecond reason is becausesuriname is 30% Muslim and hasover 100 masjids in the country(by my estimates more than anyother South American or Carib-bean Country), and the third rea-son is halaal food is everywherein the country. The populationof Suriname is very diverse withpeople of African descent andEast Indian decent being the ma-jority (around 80%), howeverthe rest of the population is ofNative Amerindian (various

tribes), Indonesian, Syrian, Brazil-ian, Chinese, Lebanese and a mixof all of the races. We even have alarge Guyanese population in thewestern part. The history of Islamin Suriname started in 1499 whenthe slaves ships arrived carryingthe men, women and children fromWest Africa.The majority of persons from WestAfrica at the time and currentlywere and are Muslim.

By Bro. Taj Siddiqui / Florida U.S.A.

Rev. Thomas GrafQur’aan Ch. 2, Verse 177:Righteousness is not only that you turnyour faces towards east or west (inprayers), but it is also righteousness :

PIEPIEPIEPIEPIETYTYTYTYTY&

RIGHTEOUSNESSRIGHTEOUSNESSRIGHTEOUSNESSRIGHTEOUSNESSRIGHTEOUSNESS

*To believe in God, the Last Day (of judgment), the An-gels, the (divine) Book, and the Messengers (of God);*To spend your wealth and resources that you like so much,out of love for God, for your relatives, for orphans, for the(helpless and) needy, for the travelers, for those who ask,and for the redemption of the captives (of debt);*To be punctual with your prayers (Salats), and practiceregular charity (Zakat);*To fulfill the contracts and promises that you have made;*To be firm and patient, in pain, suffering and adversity,and during the times of struggle.These are the people who are sincere, the people of truth,and the God-fearing.

As we move through the seasons of Spring intoSummer, we cannot help but experience thenewness of life emerging all around us. I findit interesting that many religions celebrate times of “New Begin-nings” within their traditions during this time of the year. Re-cently our Jewish brothers and sisters celebrated Shavuot. (OrPentecost) Shavuot means “weeks.” It marks the completion ofthe 7-week period between Passover and this feast of Shavuotand celebrates/commemorates/renews the giving of The Law (TheTorah) to Moses (Peace be upon him.) at Mt. Sinai. Some referto this feast as the uniting of God with the Jewish people in a HolyRelationship—New Beginning. Many of our Christian Churchesrecently celebrated their Feast of Pentecost. The Christian Feastof Pentecost occurs 7-weeks after Easter Sunday and it celebrates/commemorates/renews the descent of the Holy Spirit upon theApostles and other followers of Jesus (Peace be upon him) theChrist. (120 in all) For many Christians, this feast is referred toas the “Birthday of the Church”—New Beginning. As we look toJuly, many devout Muslims will be preparing for the most Sacredtime in their tradition, when they enter into that month of fastingand devout prayer—Ramadan. This most sacred of times cel-ebrates/commemorates/renews the Revelation that ProphetMuhammed (P.B.U.H) was sent down during the month ofRamadan. Continue on Page 34, Inshaa Allaah

Vitamin D has long beenknown to be an essentialnutrient for maintainingboth bone and musclehealth. However, recent studies have shownthat vitamin D may have other multiple healthroles including normalizing blood pressure,helping with adequate glucose control, pro-tecting against cancer, and other importantphysiological roles. Studies have shown thatpeople who are deficient in vitamin D may beat risk for osteoporosis, muscle aches/weak-ness, psuedofractures, and other non- spe-cific musculoskeletal pain. Vitamin D comesfrom food such as fatty fish and foods forti-fied with vitamin D as well as sunlight. Un-fortunately, many individuals are deficient asa result of a diet high in processed foods, lim-ited sun exposure, darker skin, obesity, anddrug interactions. Older adults are especiallyat risk for vitamin D deficiency, because asthey age skin cannot synthesize vitamin D ef-ficiently.

Islam In Suriname, Past,Present & Future

Continued from Page 12

By: H.M. Abdul Karriem Van Leesten

In 1863 slavery was abol-ished and the Dutch neededto find more laborers towork on the plantations forfree. So in 1873 the sec-ond group of Muslims thatarrived in Suriname was theEast Indian indentured ser-vants and Indonesian agri-cultural workers. The EastIndians were either Hinduor Muslim and were al-lowed to keep their names,practice their religious be-liefs, and also were allowedto continue to speak theirlanguages Hindi and Urdu.Suriname is the only countyin the Western Hemispherethat has hundreds of thou-sands of people speakingHindi and Urdu on a dailybasis outside of Asia. TheLebanese, and Syrians wereeither Muslim or Christianand the Indonesian’s weremajority Muslims and theyspoke and were allowed tocontinue to speak their na-tive language Malay. Wehave various types ofmasjids from small com-munity masjids to verylarge masjids. Every time Itravel to Suriname which isnormally several times ayear I bring with me a suit-case full of Islamic materi-als courtesy of Al-Hikmatand Sheikh ShafayatMohamed. My last tripwas no different and I car-ried Salaah books, Al-Hikmat magazines, the bro-chure one god one religion,and the newest publication“Qur’aan & Ahaadith onDeath & Parents.”

Alexander the great’s lastwords: “Ice melts whenheated” “Eyes melt whenhated” Alexander, afterconquering manykingdoms, was returninghome. On the way, he fellill and it took him to hisdeath bed. With deathstaring him in his face,Alexander realized how hisconquests, his great army,his sharp sword and all hiswealth were of noconsequence. He nowlonged to reach home tosee his mother’s face andbid her his last adieu. But,he had to accept the factthat his sinking healthwould not permit him toreach his distanthomeland. So, the mightyconqueror lay prostrateand pale, helplesslywaiting to breathe his last.

He called his trustedgenerals and said, “I willdepart from this worldsoon and I have threewishes, please carry outthem out without fail.”With tears flowing downtheir cheeks, thegenerals agreed to abideby their king’s lastwishes. “My first desireis that”, said Alexander,“My physicians alonemust carry my coffin.”After a pause, hecontinued, “Secondly, Idesire that when mycoffin is being carried tothe grave, the pathleading to the graveyardbe strewn with gold,silver and preciousstones which I havecollected in mytreasury”. “My third andlast wish is that both my

hands be kept danglingout of my coffin.” Thepeople who had gatheredthere wondered at theking’s strange wishes.But no one dared bringthe question to their lips.Alexander’s favoritegeneral kissed his handand pressed them to hisheart. “Oh! our king, weassure you that yourwishes will all befulfilled. But tell us whydo you make suchstrange wishes?” At this,Alexander took a deepbreath and said: “I wouldlike the world to knowof the three lessons Ihave just learned.”Continued on Page 34,

Bro. Austin Raymond re-verted back to Islam afterseparating from the mili-tary in 1994. His brotherAustin Raymond

was recently reverted, with Allaah’s permission,several months prior and gave him literature onthe Deen. Bro. Austin had always sympathizedwith Muslims due to the contact with the Na-tion of Islam and the brothers selling the “FinalCall” newspaper. Bro. Austin and his brother lis-tened to Minister Farrakhan every Sunday morn-ing so the name Allaah and Muhammad (P.B.U.H)were not foreign. Bro. Austin stated, “My hangup along with most Christians was how Mus-lims perceived Jesus (P.B.U.H).” He never dugdeeper outside of what he needed to prove hispoint of racial inequality. After Bro. Austin readthe Gospel of Barnabas and looked at Islamicinformation his brother gave him, there was noquestion of what path he would choose. Bro.Austin accepted Islam and have not looked backsince.

Two girls ask for one coffee each,pay and go. The next order was forseven coffees and it was made bythree lawyers - three for them andfour ‘suspended’. While I still won-der what’s the deal with those ‘sus-pended’ coffees, I enjoy the sunnyweather and the beautiful view to-wards the square in front of the café.Suddenly a man dressed in shabbyclothes who looks like a beggarcomes in through the door and kindlyasks, “Do you have a suspended cof-fee?” It’s simple - people pay in ad-vance for a coffee meant for some-one who cannot afford a warm bev-erage. Others came in and paid for“suspended sandwiches” or a wholemeal.” In other words, these kindfolks, did not only buy food or drinksto satisfy their hunger, but also pre-paid for drinks and meals for thosewho may walk in homeless, hungryand needy. These kind deeds becamea daily ritual with many customers atthe café and many of the poor andneedy benefitted from these randomacts of kindness. The Prophet

Muhammad (SAW) tells us that“Allah loves most those deeds thatare consistent, even if small.”[Sahih al-Bukhari]. These acts ofcharity done in advance, is de-scribed as “paying it forward.” Weshould not wait to hear about adisaster, or wait until someone fallsflat on their backs, or wait untilwe’re having a good day to sharea smile or listen to someone else’sproblems, in order to give of our-selves , our wealth, our labor orour time. Not everyone needs ourmoney, but everyone can benefitfrom our time and effort. We thankAllah (SWT) that we do not need“suspended meals”, but there aremany who need not just “sus-pended meals, but suspended timespent with them, suspended smiles,suspended donations, suspendedcare. I remind myself and then oth-ers to consistently give of your la-bor, your wealth, your time andyour effort to make a difference insomeones’ life.

Judaism does not allow us to for-get God’s blessings. After each mealwe are commanded to recite aneven longer prayer of thanksgiving,thanking God for the blessings offood and of all the necessities ofbounty that keep us alive and en-joying life. We do not have a monthlong observance of fasting in ourtradition, but we do have seven fastdays in our calendar throughout theyear to purify our souls. And in ad-dition, we have several periods dur-ing the year in which we refrainfrom festivities to remind us that lifeincludes cycles of both goodnessand difficulties and in all circum-stances we should be thankful toGod for what we have. So I wishthose in the Muslim community aRamadan Kareem. Let your nobleobservances inspire each individualto remember God’s blessings, andmay the commitment to your ownreligious traditions inspire othersthroughout the world to recognizethe goodness that God’s blessingshave bestowed upon all of human-ity.

Question:Question:Question:Question:Question: How to benefit fromRamadhaan?Answer :Answer :Answer :Answer :Answer : It is a bounty fromAllaah’s mercy that He ordainedfasting in order to purify andcleanse our hearts from lustfulthings. Muslims all over theworld commemorate the monthof Ramadan; the leader of allmonths; the month of forgive-ness, merits and gifts; the monththat gladdens the hearts of righ-teous people. Ramadan is themonth that contains the leader ofall nights; a night that is betterthan a thousand months. Who-ever spends the night in prayerswith faith and hoping for Allaah’sreward will have all his past sinsforgiven. The Prophet (S.A.W)“When the month of Ramadanenters, gates of Paradise areopened, gates of Hell are closedand devils are chained.” (Re-ported by Al-Bukhari and Mus-lim) Therefore, whoever wantseternal prosperity should en-deavor to worship Allaah and dogood deeds sincerely. For, gooddeeds without sincere intentionis of no use. It is a glory for abeliever to wake up in the nightand perform prayers, for the bestprayer after the obligatory onesare the prayers performed in thenight. One should endeavor tosupplicate to Allaah during thenights of this noble month be-cause, supplication is the linkbetween man and his Lord; it isan effortlessly clear profit andeasy booty; it prevents calami-ties and brings forth Allaah’s trea-sures and bounties. By supplicat-ing to Allaah during the night, Heanswers by granting the requestgenerously, for His Hands neverget tired of giving. The Qur’aanis Allaah’s message to His ser-vants and a light for mankind.

There is no way to Allaah’spleasure except through it. Itis revealed in the best of allmonths. The best way to spendone’s time during this monthis to recite the Qur’aan as fre-quently as possible. Read it, re-flect on its meaning and workby its injunctions. This is be-cause the Qur’aan contains ad-monitions and lessons that in-crease one’s humility andhumbleness.As regards charity,the Prophet S.A.W. was themost generous of all people andhis generosity manifested mostduring the month of Ramadan.Whenever he gave, he gavegenerously as if he had no fearof poverty. He would never beasked of anything except thathe gave it unless if he did nothave it. Charity, has its posi-tive effects on the giver. Itcauses blessings to his wealthand children, prevents calami-ties and brings forth bliss.Ramadhaan is a month of char-ity. One should spend from hiswealth for the poor and needyand be aware that stinginessdoes not protect one’s wealthforever. In fact charity in-creases one’s wealth. There-fore, one should spend in char-ity, for charity elevates one’srank in front of Allaah. Oneshould make proper preparationfor this honorable month, be-cause it is a special guest. Re-ceive it with sincere repentanceand spend time during themonth in acts of obedience toAllaah. I’tikaaf (seclusion in amosque for the purpose ofworshipping Allaah alone) isalso a Sunnah that should bedone during the last ten daysof Ramadan.Continued on Page 34, Inshaa Allaah

“I want my physicians to carrymy coffin because peopleshould realize that no doctor canreally cure any body. They arepowerless and cannot save aperson from the clutches ofdeath. So let not people take lifefor granted. The second wishof strewing gold, silver andother riches on the way to thegraveyard is to tell people thatnot even a fraction of gold willcome with me. I spent all mylife earning riches but cannottake anything with me. Letpeople realize that it is a sheerwaste of time to chase wealth.And about my third wish ofhaving my hands dangling outof the coffin, I wish people toknow that I came empty intothis world and empty handed Igo out of this world.” Withthese words, the king closed hiseyes. Soon he let death conquerhim and breathed his last!!

ISLAMIC & WESTERNJURISPRUDENCE

someone say to another, “you have performed so manynafals on such and such day,did the Holy Prophet SAWdo as well?”. The answer tothis would be, “Did the HolyProphet SAW forbid this?”.Umar (RA) used to regularlykeep nafal fast on Mondaysand Thursdays. These days,various Muslim cantons re-cite the names of the Khulefae Rashideen ( Abu Bakr,Umar, Usmaan & Ali RAm)in the Friday Khutbah (ser-mon). It was not andcouldn’t be a practice in thetime of the Holy Prophet(SAW). Now, should we la-bel it as a wrong practice?
