AN AYAH A DAY
بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَـنِ الرَّحِيمِ
THE BOUNTIES ARE BECAUSE OF ALLAH,NOT THE DEVIATIONS
Allah SWT said, ﴿صِرَاطَ الَّذِينَ أَنْعَمْتَ عَلَيْهِمْ﴾ (The way of those upon whom you have bestowed Your grace), when He mentioned His favor. On mentioning anger, Allah said, ﴿غَيْرِ الْمَغْضُوبِ عَلَيْهِمْ﴾ (Not (that) of those who earned Your anger), without mentioning the subject, although it is He Who has sent down the anger on them, just as Allah stated in another Ayah,(Have you (O Muhammad ) not seen those (hypocrites) who take as friends a people upon whom is the wrath of Allah (i.e. Jews)) (58:14).
🔹Also, Allah SWT relates the misguidance of those who indulged in it, although they were justly misguided according to Allah’s appointed destiny.
For instance, Allah SWT said,
(He whom Allah guides, he is the rightly-guided; but he whom He sends astray, for him you will find no Wali (guiding friend) to lead him (to the right path)) (18:17 and,
(Whomsoever Allah sends astray, none can guide him; and He lets them wander blindly in their transgression)(7:186).
🔹These and several other Ayah testify to the fact that Allah alone is the One Who guides and misguides.
An authentic Hadith narrated, (When you see those who follow what is not so clear in it (the Qur’an), then they are those whom Allah has mentioned (refer to 3:7). Hence, avoid them.)
🔹The Prophet Muhammad SAW was referring to Allah’s statement, (So as for those in whose hearts there is a deviation (from the truth) they follow that which is not entirely clear thereof, seeking Al-Fitnah (polytheism and trials), and seeking for its hidden meanings)(3:7).
🔹Verily, no innovator in the religion could ever rely on any authentic evidence in the Qur’an that testifies to his innovation. The Qur’an came to distinguish between truth and falsehood, and guidance and misguidance. The Qur’an does not contain any discrepancies or contradictions, because it is a revelation from the Most Wise, Worthy of all praise.
🏼It is recommended to say Amin after finishing the recitation of Al-Fatihah. Amin means, “O Allah! Accept our invocation.” The evidence that saying Amin is recommended is contained in what Imams Ahmad, Abu Dawud and At-Tirmidhi recorded, that Wa’il bin Hujr said, “I heard the Messenger of Allah SAW recite, (Not (that) of those who earned Your anger, nor of those who went astray), and he said `Amin’ extending it with his voice.”
🔹Saying Amin is recommended for those who are not praying (when reciting Al-Fatihah) and is strongly recommended for those who are praying, whether alone or behind the Imam. The Two Sahihs recorded that the Messenger of Allah SAW said, (When the Imam says, ‘ Amin’, then say, ‘Amin’, because whoever says, Amin’ with the angels, his previous sins will be forgiven.)
🔹It was said that the Hadith talks about both the angels and the Muslims saying Amin at the same time. The Hadith also refers to when the Amins said by the angels and the Muslims are equally sincere (thus bringing about forgiveness).
🔹Further, it is recorded in Sahih Muslim that Abu Musa related to the Prophet SAW that he said, (When the Imam says, `Walad-dallin’, say, `Amin’ and Allah will answer your invocation.)
