This book is a brief compilation of hadith related to ruling. It is a small selection but it is hoped that it serves to illustrate how central to Islam was its ruling system, and the manner of the just ruler as opposed to the characteristics of the evil one, and the nature of the application of the rule, the role of the Ummah in accounting those in authority, and the painful consequences if this is neglected.


Hadith Role of the Ummah Rules


Due to the intellectual decline that befell the Muslim Ummah during the last few centuries various confusions exist today regarding Islamic jurisprudence (Fiqh). Most of these relate to misunderstanding subjects related to the principles and foundations of jurisprudence (Usul al-Fiqh). Different extremes exist today where some Muslims look at evidences from the Qur’an and Sunnah and attempt to interpret them without having the necessary framework to extract the correct meanings. Whilst others disregard the Shari’ah evidences altogether, utilising their own logic rather than the revelation and some who believe that the doors of Ijtihad are closed.
This book aims to clarify key subjects that establish the framework of Islamic juristic thinking.

Hajj…that sublime fifth Pillar of Islam, rich with farreaching shoreless meanings, wisdoms, morals, philosophies and symbols; a rehearsal to the Day of Crowding, a great scene of equality where all privileges melt into thin air. In Hajj there is a reenactment of Prophet’s Ibrâhîm (peace and blessings be upon him) firm stand against the black whispers of Satan. He stoned him seven times, a physical matter that agrees with our corporality, for us to learn that we should always stone the devil within ourselves in a nonphysical sense, barring all his gateways to us, by our defiance to yield to his satanic temptations until he recedes and leaves us dispossessed of all power over us. All hajjis came answering the call of The Great Summoner – His Majesty, Allah, all praise and glory be to Him. All are standing before Allah just with a seamless piece of cloth on body like the shroud you shall come out of this world wrapped in. Tawâf, Sa‘y, Standing at ‘Arafat, offering sacrifice, Zamzam…. and other Hajj rites, all have a wisdom and a moral, all teach a lesson that we should live by. Hajj with it majesty and the magnificence of worship in it is the hope of every Muslim to establish the Fifth Pillar of his Islam; hope of becoming a hajji, a traveler whose destination is the Sacred House of Allah and visiting His Messenger Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace.

 



This is a treatise we have written concerning humility (Khushu’) and the hearts meekness and breaking (inkisar) before the Lord. The basic meaning of Khushu’, is the softness of the heart, its being gentle, still, submissive, broken, and yearning. When the heart is humble, so too is the hearing, seeing, heard, and face; indeed all the limbs and their actions are humbled, even speech. This is why the Prophet (saw) would say in his bowing (ruku), “My hearing, sight, bones, and marrow are humbled to You,” another narration has, “and whatever my foot carries.” One of the Salaf saw a man fidgeting in his prayer and remarked, ‘If the heart of this person was humble, so too would his limbs be.’ The source of the Khushu, that takes place in the heart is the gnosis of Allah’s greatness, magnificence, and perfection. Teh more gnosis a person has of Allah, the more Khushu’ he has. The greatest action of worship which manifests the Khushu, of the body to Allah is the prayer (Salaah). Allah has praised those who have Khushu’ in the prayer.
