carries one mark. If your score is less than 80%, repeat the exercise.

English

It is not righteousness (or piety)

That you turn your faces towards the East or the


West

But the (behavior of) righteousness is:


(That of a person) who believes in Allah, the Day
of Judgment, the angels, the divine books and the
Prophets.

And gives his wealth due to His (Allahs) love to:


(poor) relatives, orphans, poor, (needy) traveler,
those who ask for financial help, and those is
slavery.

And establish the prayer and pay the Zakat.

And (the people) who fulfill their responsibilities


when they enter into a contract

Those who are firm and patient during suffering,


adversity and at the time of war.

These are the people who are truthful and these are
the people who are righteous (and pious).

Have you noted that all understood and implied words are not described in clear words in the Arabic
language. Thats why we have added certain understood words in the translation which are shown in
brackets. In the Classical Arabic, understanding the implied words or sentences is left at the intellect of
the addressee. In ancient times, people did not like to listen every understood word and the language was
considered ineloquent if too many words were used.

English

Whatever is in heavens and the earth belongs to


Him.

Who can intercede in front of Him without His


permission.

Allah, there is no god except Him.


The living, the eternal.
He neither slumbers nor sleeps.

He knows what is in their hands and what is behind


them (i.e. an idiom which means that He knows all
of their deeds)

They cannot compass anything from His


knowledge except what He likes (to disclose).
His throne (control of universe) is more vast than
the heavens and the earth. Guarding of both of
them (heavens & earth) does not fatigues Him. He
is the exalted, the supreme.

There is no persecution in the religion.

Verily, the true path has been made clearly


distinctive from error.

Whoever renounces the forces of evil and believes


in Allah, has grasped the firm hand-hold which will
never break.
And Allah hears all and knows all.

Allah is the protector of believers. He brings them


out of darkness and leads them into the light.

2:255- ).




(257

Evil forces are the guardians of those who do not


believe. They bring them out of the light and lead
them into the darkness.
(As a result) they become the companions of the
Hellfire. They will live there forever.

repentance, the merciful.
So there is no harm on both of them if they

And the two from you, who commit that,
punish both of them. So if they repent and
improve, then leave both of them.
And I was not the one from those who are

should migrate to a land where religious freedom is available to him / her. This religious migration is a
great deed in Islam. If a persons intention for this migration is to protect his / her religion, he / she will
be rewarded by Allah. If this migration is for a worldly objective, he / she will achieve that objective but

Musa Bin Ismael described the Hadith to


us:

Wuhaib described the Hadith to us:


Hisham described the Hadith to us, (he
derived it) from his father, (his father
derived it) from Hakeem Bin Hizam
that the Prophet said:

'Upper hand is better than the lower hand.

'

Start (spending in Allahs way) with your


family.

The best charity is that a person remains


rich after giving charity.




(1361 ' ).

One who avoids begging, Allah protects


him.
And the one who wants to be financially
independent, Allah makes him independent.

In this Hadith, the Prophet motivated rich people to spend in Allahs way. He also
stirred poor people to avoid begging and asked them to make a target to become financially independent.
The Prophet asked to start charity from kith and kin. If a person wants to spend on poor, he should start it
from his poor relatives. A person should not give all his wealth to poor because it will make him poor.

Think about it!


Why this Hadith is still authentic although the word is used in its
reliable people. They are not famous for the habit of hiding names.
What is the meaning of 'upper hand' and 'lower hand'?

That a man praised Uthmaan.


Miqdad proceeded, he bent his knees (to
pick pebbles, although) he was a fat man.
Then he put these pebbles on his face.

(3002 )

Miqdad Bin Aswad was one of great companions of the Prophet . He is one
of the earliest converts to Islam. Probably, the guy may had praised Caliph Uthman to get
some benefit. In Islam, praising the rulers in front of them to get some benefit is highly discouraged.
Miqdad did so to discourage that person. In that Bedouin society, expressing hatred in this way was a
normal thing.

Think about it!


Why praising someone is discouraged in this Hadith?
What type of praise is forbidden?
