Koran Karim  says.

Allah enjoins to do justice and to adopt good behavior and to give relatives (their due rights), and forbids shameful acts, evil deeds and oppressive attitude. He encourages you, so that you may be aware . “

We will discuss all the quranic orders in this ayah step wise so that you may learn Quran  for kids and implement it in your daily life.

Islam, the best code of life, has great concern with peace and genuine respect for people. Islam demands  fair-mindedness and righteousness  morality from its followers. All Muslims should be a symbol of honesty and righteousness. In any society justice plays an important role in placing things in their rightful place.  Giving others equal treatment is compulsory.

Holy Prophet  of Islam declared:

“On Judgement day There will be no shade except Allah’s own shade . Allah will bestow  shelter under His shade to people of seven categories  One of them is justice.”

Allah says in a Hades a Qudsi

“Surely Allah has forbidden injustice for Himself and it is not allowed for you.  O My slaves, Don’t be unjust to one another.”

Allah says in Koran Karim ,in sorah number 57 ayat number 25 ,that Verily we have revealed the Scripture and the Balance in order so that our Messengers might lead people with justice. Justice represents moral rectitude and fairness so Islam considers it as a basic objective. There are numerous verses in Koran Karim

which clearly declares it as a supreme virtue. We are giving following
In Sorah Nahal 16th sorah Ayah number 90 Allah says “commands justice and fair dealing.

At an other place Allah orders

Group of believers , be upright for Allah, and (be) bearers of witness with justice” (Quran 5:8)

In simple words justice is an obligation of Islam and injustice is forbidden clearly. Koran Karim declares The Importance of Justice

“O Group of believers! You must be obey the commands of Allah and witnesses for justice. Hatred against any group of people should not prompt you in doing justice. Do justice as it will lead to nearer to Taqwa. Fear Allah. No doubt Allah know well and all about what you do.”

A verse At an other place states that  “I (Holy Prophet Peace be upon him) am commanded to judge justly between you.”

Dear brothers and sisters in Islam follow Koran Karim for you follow quran for kids . The only way for success and the path for success is Islam only. Yesterday 132 kids were brutally killed in Pakistan by 7 militants. I even don’t like to call such militants as Muslims as Islam teaches us to follow the sun-nah of Holy Prophet. It is clear from Quran and sun-nah of Holy Prophet that such acts are against Islam.  As per Islam and quran for kids and disable , There is extra  Compassion. Such militants are unaware from basic Islamic teaching.

Um-a- Rooman, a Shinning Star in The History Of Islam

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said:

“See Um-a-Rooman If someone wants to see a beautiful virgin of Paradise”

She was  the mother of ‘Ayshah Thus she was the Prophet’s mother-in-law. Her son, Abd-dur-Rahman was an excellent rider and brave man, actual name of Um-a-Rooman was Zaynab. According to Arabic Traditions she was known by her family name. She accepted the teachings of Islam in very early beginning of preaching by Holy Prophet

 Tabaqat Ibn Sa’d narrated that Um-a- Rooman accepted Islam in the very early days in Maccah. She swore allegiance at the hand of the Prophet himself and then migrated with the blessed group of emigrants.

When she witnessed the terrible atrocities committed by the Quraiesh against the Muslims, she would suffer and weep for the innocent victims; but she gained courage when she saw the moral strength and exemplary sacrifice of her husband for the cause of Islam. She drew inspiration from him and found peace in his presence.

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) also used to exhort his faithful followers not to waver, but to be patient and hold steadfast to their faith, for they would surely in the Hereafter be rewarded with Paradise. Companions of The Prophet were the faithful. Once they accepted Islam they refused to leave Islam even when their bodies were cut in two with a saw. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) addressed the family of Yasir,

‘O family of Yasir! Be patient, for your final destination and resting place will be Paradise.’

During this long period, Um-a-Rooman remained an image of patience, forbearance courage and bravery she gave him moral support to husband’s  for the propagation of Islam. She bought up her children according to the traditions of Islam. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) often used to visit the house of his illustrious follower and friend, Abu Bakr Siddiq. He would advise Um-a-Rooman to keep encouraging and instilling the love of goodness in ‘Ayshah.

Khadijah passed away three years before the migration of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) to Al-Madinah. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) spent a year as unmarried person. When Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) married ‘Ayshah, Um-a-Rooman had the honor of becoming his mother-in-law. She expressed great happiness at the thought that her daughter would be one of those who joined the ranks of the blessed Mothers of the Believers. What other greater honor could she want for her family?

When Allah ordered the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) to migrate to Al-Madinah he went to the house of his closest friend and Companion, Abu Bakr Siddiq. Without any questions or hesitation, he prepared to accompany the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him).  He preferred Holy Prophet over his family and care of Allah and set off for an unknown and unseen destination.

It was a very tough time for Um-a-Rooman; as she was separated from her husband; and there was a lack of money for household expenses, since he had taken all the available cash with him. However, what predominated all other thoughts in her mind were supplications to Allah for the safe arrival of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), and her husband in Al Madinah. On reaching their destination safely, the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) sent Zayd bin Harithah and Abu Rafi’ to bring his family, Abu Bakr As-Siddiq sent ‘Abdullah bin Ariqat and wrote to his son ‘Abdullah to bring his family. Um-a-Rooman and ‘Ayshah got on one camel’s back. Camel became out of control during their journey.  Um-a-Rooman was worried about her beloved daughter ‘Ayshah. She called her and then, someone called out to let go of the reins. As a result the camel calmed down she remained safe from the impending danger.

One day both Abu Bakr Siddiq and  Um-a-Rooman visited the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). and requested him to offer supplications to Allah for ‘Ayshah.

Then he prayed to Allah to forgive ‘Ayshah bint Abu Bakr both inside and outside, such a forgiveness that would leave no sin. They were very happy with this perfect supplication.

Then he told them that this was his prayer for all those who accepted Islam after his being named Messenger of Allah, and remained steadfast in their belief.

Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) respected Um-a-Rooman very much, and she in turn gave first priority to doing things that pleased him. Therefore, life was very pleasant, and everyone was happy fulfilling his or her obligations to man and his Creator. One day the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) praised Khadijah at great length extolling her many virtues. ‘Ayshah felt a very strong twinge of feminine jealousy; involuntarily she said that he was talking of Khadijah ‘ as if there was no other woman on earth but she. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) did not like this at all, and his face reddened with a terrible anger. When Um-a-Rooman heard of this she went to the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) and tried to apologize for ‘Ayshah telling him that she was still very young that he should not take her seriously. Very curtly, addressing ‘Ayshah he asked her if she had not said that there was no other woman on the face of the earth besides Khadijah. He swore by Allah that this great woman had believed him when the tribe of ‘Ayshah had denied that he was the Messenger and Prophet of Allah. She gave him the great gift of children, which was not the case with ‘Ayshah.

Um-a-Rooman listened in complete silence because she knew that all that he spoke was by the command and revelation of Allah. He did not speak of his own accord; his words were always based on revelations of Allah.

Tradition has it that Um-a-Rooman passed away in the year 6th after Hijrah. During her burial, the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) asked Allah to forgive her. Doubtless, this was a great honor for her. It was on this occasion that he said that if any person wanted to see a beautiful celestial virgin of Paradise, he could see Um-a-Rooman . Thus these words are an indication that she will, Allah Willing, be in Paradise in the Hereafter. May Allah fill her grave with radiance. Another tradition regarding the death of Um-a-Rooman, is however more reliable. It says that she died after the passing away of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him).

Verily the words of Allah are true,

“Verily, those who believe and do righteous deeds, and humble themselves before their Lord, they will be dwellers of Paradise to dwell therein forever.” [Noble Quran 11:23]

We not only provide teaching services of quran for kids but also we increase their Islamic history knowledge.

Is Backbiting Ever Allowed ?

Following are few few conditions in which back biting is allowed. If you follow true code of life i.e quran for kids and for your own , there will be ease in life . Koran Karim is for kindness not for blood shedding. Imam an-Nawawee (may Allah have mercy upon him) said in his Riyaadh-us-Saaliheen (*), chapter 256: “You should know that backbiting is permissible for specific legislated reasons unreachable except by (way of backbiting) they are the following six reasons:

1. The first is complaining of oppression, so it is permissible for the oppressed person to present his case to the Muslim ruler or Muslim judge or someone of similar stature and authority to assist in removing the oppression. He can say: “I have been wronged by such and such a person.”

2. Another option is seeking assistance, So one can say to the one who has the ability to change the evil: “Such and such a person has done this, so advise him.” Or something similar and that he intends to reach this disobedient o­ne by way of removing the evil, so if he intends other than that then it is not permissible.

3. Thirdly when one seeks fatwa. So he says to the mufti: “My father has oppressed me, or my brother, or my husband, or such and such has done this, does he have right to? And what is the way to sincerity (ikhlaas) and obtaining my rights and repelling oppression?” or something along the lines, so this is permissible by necessity. However it is better to say:” What do you say regarding a man, or person, or husband, if his condition is such and such?” So he obtains his purpose without specification, but being specific is permissible, as we will mention in the hadeeth of Hind, Allah willing.

4. The fourth reason is warning the Muslims from evil and advising them and that is from several aspects: you may use nice language according to teachings of Quran for kids you may use examples but examples should be from Koran Karim and not the fake one.

A.) From it is the disparagement of the criticized people by way of the reliable and trustworthy witnesses. That is permissible by consensus of the Muslims rather it is obligatory by necessity.

B.) From it is when a man inquires about someone before marriage, or entering into a business partnership with someone, or safekeeping something with someone or doing business with someone. It is obligatory upon the one advising not to conceal his condition rather he should mention the shortcomings he has with the sole intention of advising him.

C.) From it is if one sees a person of fiqh frequenting an innovator or a faasiq (a person engaged in disobedience) and taking knowledge from him, and he fears that he may affect him (with his innovation or fisq) then it is upon him to advise of his condition on the basis that he intends to advise. And this is where error may occur, the person who speaks of the individual could be envious and Shaytaan (may Allah’s curse be upon him) may deceive him into thinking he is advising with compassion, it is necessary to be aware of this (type of fitnah).

D.) From it is one who has position but he does not establish it, whether it is because he is not fit for it, or he is one who is corrupt, or neglectful, or something similar to these examples. It is obligatory to mention that to the one in authority so as to remove him and replace him with one more befitting. He should make him aware of his condition so he can be dealt with and urge him to improve or be replaced with someone else.

5. The fifth reason is concerning the one who openly commits disobedience or innovation like openly drinking alcohol, taking the property of others, taking taxes not legislated or other issues of falsehood, then it is permissible to mention what he does publicly. It is not permissible to mention other faults he may have except those we have mentioned before.

6. The sixth reason is to describe someone. So if a man is known by a nickname such as “The Weak-eyed” “The Lame” “The Deaf one” “The Blind one” “The Cross-eyed” and other similar names. It is permissible to discus someone for identification but unlawful to indicate his deficiencies. If one can describe him another way then it is best.

Understand and follow quran for kids as you are first responsible for your kids. Koran Karim is the only solution for  Muslim ummah.

Koran Karim Forbids to do Backbiting

Koran Karim clearly condemns  backbiting. Allah says in

Sorah Hujr

وَلَا يَغۡتَب بَّعۡضُكُم بَعۡضًا‌ۚ أَيُحِبُّ أَحَدُڪُمۡ أَن يَأۡڪُلَ لَحۡمَ أَخِيهِ مَيۡتً۬ا فَكَرِهۡتُمُوهُ‌ۚ وَٱتَّقُواْ ٱللَّهَ‌ۚ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ تَوَّابٌ۬ رَّحِيمٌ۬ (

١٢)

Translation

And Do not backbite one another. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? Surely you would abhor it, Fear from Allah( If you had done this in past repent as) Surely Allah is Relenting, Merciful. (12) .

Let see what is backbiting and what are its adverse effects on our daily lives that Allah resembled it in Koran Karim with eating of dead human flesh. Eating of human is an abhor able deed and the dead one’s flesh is more abhor able and eating the dead brother’s flesh is really really intolerable.

Backbiting is a big sin, We are presenting the definition of backbiting so that Muslim brothers and sisters can understand and avoid backbiting in future. We try our best to increase the passion of Quran recitation with our simple to understand articles.

Hadhrat Abu Dharr is a known pious companion of Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Once he asked,” O Messenger of Allah, what is backbiting? Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him),” It is to mention about your brother that which he dislikes.” Abu Dharr inquired again that It would be still considered as backbiting  if the mentioned fault was actually present in concerned person.  Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) replied in a very simple and clear way  if the mentioned fault was actually present in concerned person, it is backbiting and if  if the mentioned fault was not present in concerned person then it is slandering.

Be aware, brothers and sisters !! making false and damaging statements about someone is also prohibited in Islam. We will discuss it in any other post with the reference of Koran Karim. We can save our selves from hell fire if we make busy ourselves in Quran recitation rather than such discussions.

If someone refuses to participate in such talks , other will be save from this sin and if someone appreciates the backbiting talks he will be part in promoting it. listening to backbiting is also a contribution in backbiting.

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said To Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib (peace be upon him) that if  the backbiting of some one was done in presence of some one and he listened it without degrading the Sayer despite being capable of doing so, Allah would humiliate him in this world and in the Hereafter.

Mold your lives according to quran for kids as our kids learn from our practice more as compared to our sayings. May Allah save us from such social evils.

Quran for kids

Koran Karim is book of Allah, Translation and script  of Surah Fatir Ayat number 29-30 is as follows:

“Those who rehearse the Book of Allah, establish Prayer regularly  and spend  out of what We have bestowed them, Either secretly or openly, they are hopeful for a sure trade¬gain that will never perish (29)( They hope) That He may pay them their wages in full, and  WILL give them (even) more, out of His Grace. verily, He is Forgiving, Appreciative.”

If someone wants to Draw near to Allah, the way is simple. Follow HIS words ( Holy Quran) as much as you are able. No one can be near to HIM if he is not following Holy Quran (His words).

The person who has the understanding of the religion , is the luckiest. Recitation and memorization of Koran Karim is the ultimate source of legislation. It is narrated by Bukhari that holy Prophet Muhammad  (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wasallam) said that whenever Allah intended good for someone He gave him the understanding of the religion.

Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wasallam) said that after entering Paradise it would be said to the companion of the Koran Karim  to Recite, and rise.  He would raise one level in Paradise For every verse he would recite, until he would recite the last verse from his memory.

Memorizing the Koran Karim is a great virtuous deed. It will save from Hell-Fire on Judgement Day . Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wasallam) said, “Allah will never put any person in Hell who has saved some part of the Koran Karim in his heart. “

We offer one to one classes to teach Quran for kids. There is no age restriction in Quran reading or  Memorizing. Quran is for young and old, male and female. Please visit the following page for booking a class

http://quranbaha.org/quran-for-kids/

If  you teach holy Quran to your children, boys and girls, They will remain safe from Devil and his schemes as Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wasallam) said, “Verily devil makes a quick exit from the house in which Surat Al Baqarah is recited.”

Spending in Islam and Quran in English

Koran Karim says to spend in Allah’s way. When Holy prophet said to spend in the way of Allah. People asked how much we have to spend. Allah guided with one word,extra, easy to say yet needs courage to follow, whatever is extra you may spend.

Now the question raises here that only rich people can spend and follow the order of Koran-Karim??? as the poor has nothing so how he can spend.

Let me explain the concept of spending. You may know the Quranic word, RIZQ, Holy Quran says to spend the EXTRA RIZQ. It is not only used for food items . It has very vast meanings. In simple words your abilities and your money is your RIZQ. You don’t have money no problem you have physical strength .You may spend your energies in way of Allah.  If u are old and have less physical strength no worries you still have the chance to spend in way of Allah by sharing your experience , you can give good suggestions to others. Share whatever you have learned in your age. Your sharing may save the time of others and reduce their labor in their struggle. If you are a student , you may guide your juniors ,  you may guide your class mates, in this way you can follow the order of Koran-Karim and help your juniors,
May be someone think why I spend my energies for the benefits of others. I want to give an example to clear the situation.  Suppose There are two persons, each of them owns 100kg of wheat. One of them goes to his land and work hard in plowing of land. After this he sprinkles half of wheat there. Then he periodically look after it , he works hard and provide water to his land  while second man laughs on him . He says why are you wasting your energies? First you wasted your wheat by  throwing it in land while you can eat it. Now instead of enjoying weather you are working hard . First man suffers for few months , sometime he eats less and sometimes he suffers starvation . Similarly he remains busy in his work while Second man enjoyed well his wheat for few months and nice weather. After few months each grain of wheat is converted into several wheat grains. Second man enjoyed well his wheat for few months but he has nothing left for future.  First man suffered few months but in reward he will enjoy for ever. . Apparently it seems weird that you are wasting your energies for helping others but in the end you will be rewarded.

Dear brothers and sisters in Islam , Please think about your future . One day you will have to meet your lord. If you suffer here, you spend your energies for the benefit of mankind , you are sewing the crop here and you will surly get reward on judgement day. Nothing of your effort will be wasted as Allah knows well and all. Learn Quran for kids , they will be your asset if you grow up them as Allah wants. If you behave like the second man did, you will be empty handed on judgement day. There will be no compensation then.

In the last , I want to say that consider Islam as deen ,a complete code of life ,  it is not the collection of rituals only. Quran recitation will guide you what Allah wants from you and how you can do your job to your best.
