Hadith ~ Take into consideration

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

Narrated Amr ibn Awf (may Allah be pleased with him): ‘The Prophet (SAWS) said to Bilal ibn Al-Hareth: “Take into consideration.” Bilal said: “What should I take into consideration Messenger of Allah?” The Prophet (SAWS) said: “Verily, he that revives a Sunna (a practice) of mine that people have neglected after my death, would have its reward and a reward equal to those who acted upon it, without decreasing theirs by aught. And he that innovates an evil practice that Allah and His Messenger (SAWS) do not approve, would have its punishment and a punishment equal to the punishment of those who acted upon it, without decreasing theirs by aught.'” (At-Termizi)

SAWS: May Allah exalt his mention and protect him from imperfection

Listen to Recitation

30. And the Jews say: ‘Uzair (Ezra) is the son of Allâh, and the Christians say: Messiah is the son of Allâh. That is a saying from their mouths. They imitate the saying of the disbelievers of old. Allâh’s Curse be on them, how they are deluded away from the truth!

31. They (Jews and Christians) took their rabbis and their monks to be their lords besides Allâh (by obeying them in things which they made lawful or unlawful according to their own desires without being ordered by Allâh), and (they also took as their Lord) Messiah, son of Maryam (Mary), while they (Jews and Christians) were commanded [in the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)) to worship none but One Ilâh (God – Allâh) Lâ ilâha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He) . Praise and glory be to Him, (far above is He) from having the partners they associate (with Him).”

32. They (the disbelievers, the Jews and the Christians) want to extinguish Allâh’s Light (with which Muhammad (SAWS) has been sent – Islâmic Monotheism) with their mouths, but Allâh will not allow except that His Light should be perfected even though the Kâfirûn (disbelievers) hate (it).

33. It is He Who has sent His Messenger with guidance and the religion of truth (Islâm), to make it superior over all religions even though the Mushrikûn (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allâh) hate (it).
