Islam is based on five pillars. This
means it is based on five very important
things that we MUST follow.
1. Shahadah - To believe in and worship
only Allah. To believe that Muhammad
(pbuh) is His messenger.
2. Salah - We must pray the Salah five
times a day. The daily prayers are Fajr,
Zohr, Asr, Maghrib and Isha.
3. Zakah - We purify our wealth by
giving a small amount to the poor. This
is given from our extra wealth.
4. Sawm - Means fasting in the month
of Ramadhan. We fast from before Fajr
until Maghrib (sunset).
5. Hajj - Is the pilgrimage to Makkah.
We perform the Hajj at least once in our
lifetime, if we can do it.
THE 5 PILLARS

Islam is the deen of the Muslims. Islam
is an Arabic word which is taken from
the words peace and submission.
We submit to Allah by choosing to
follow His guidance and to not do
anything against His wishes.
When we follow Islam, there is peace:
peace in our lives; peace in the
community and peace in the world.
Islam is not only a religion but a way of
life. Islam is the way of life for all the
Muslims in the world.
A Muslim is a person who follows the
command of Allah in every part of his or
her life.
Islam is not a new religion. All the
people who followed the true teachings
of their prophets were Muslims.

When people become Muslims they say
the shahadah with their mouths. They
also believe it in their hearts.
Shahadah means to bear witness to
something. In Islam, it means to bear
witness to the oneness of Allah.
The first part is to bear witness that
there is only one God - Allah - Who
alone we worship.
The second part is to bear witness that
Muhammad (pbuh) is the last and final
messenger of Allah.
A person who believes the shahadah in
his or her heart is indeed a Muslim. All
Muslims believe the Shadahah.
All prophets taught that Allah is one,
without a partner or a son. They told us
to worship only Allah.
SHAHADAH

We must stay on the path that is straight
and a great love for truth it will create.
By leaving all our selfishness behind,
we will become just, honest and kind.
We should go to the mosque and pray
and learn about Islam every day.
Only if we practice all that we learn,
happiness and paradise we will earn.

In Muhammad we also believe,
prophethood and wahi he did receive.
He was the last and final guide,
whose message will forever reside.
So leave falsehood and evil aside
and let Islam in our hearts abide.
Success and happiness will only thrive
when the Shahadah in our heart is alive.
Shahadah
To believe that Allah is only one,
the creator of everything - including man.
Its Allah we worship, to him we pray,
the Lord and Master of the final day.

...This day I have perfected your

upon you, and have chosen Islam as
your religion
The Qur'an was revealed over a period of 23
years. The verses of the Qur'an came down
piecemeal (a little at a time) untilthe Qur'an was
completed.
We learn that Allah chose the name Islam as our
way of life. We learn that Islam is the perfect way
of life. We also learn that Islam is based purely on
the guidance of Allah - it is not man made.
Nothing new should be added to Islam because
Allah had already perfected and completed it.
al qur'an
Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world. More people are accepting
Islam than any other religion. It is the fastest growing religion in Europe and
America.
The truth of Islam is clearly seen in the Holy Qur'an which has helped improve
the lives of billions of humans. Even today, people turn to the Qur'an for
guidance and are moved by the words of Allah.

"Whoever dies knowing
that there is no other
god but Allah will enter
paradise."
The Sahabah were the
companions of Prophet
Muhammad (pbuh).
They passed down
information about the
Prophet (pbuh) and
about his life to the
next generation. They
also passed down any
advice and teachings
the Prophet (pbuh) had
given them.
These sayings were
then collected by later
scholars and put into
books. There are many
great Hadith collections
and great Muhadith
(Hadith scholars) that
came in the later
generations.
al hadith
Hadith means news or information. In Islam, Hadith refers to sayings
and doings of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh); actions done with his approval
and information which is related to him (e.g. his description).

In Islam, the most basic and the
most important belief is Tawheed.
This is the belief in Allah who is our
only true Creator, Master and
Sustainer of the universe. He is the
Lord towards whom we direct all our
worship.
We must truly believe this in our
hearts for us to be Muslims. It is
easy to say this with our lips but its
only when we believe this in our
heart and act upon this that we will
be successful.
In the Hereafter, Allah will reward
those who believe in and live by this
fact, with Paradise.

Abdullah get to the Masjid as

Salah is an important part of Islam. Muslims must
perform Salah, five times a day. The five prayers are
Fajr, Zohr, Asr, Maghrib and Isha.
According to Hadith, a person who performs Salah
with Jamaat (congregation) will get 27 times more
reward than performing it on his own.

Musab bin Umair and Asad bin Zurarah were sitting under the
shade of a wall, resting from the hot desert sun. Earlier that
morning they had been talking to some of the people of Yathrib
about Islam. As they sat and rested, they chatted with each other.
Suddenly, Usaid bin Hudair came towards them and was angry,
in fact he was very angry. He had his spear with him and was
looking to sort someone out. He saw the two companions talking
to each other and recognised them. He began to march towards
them, shaking his spear menacingly as he strode.
Now Usaid wasnt a violent fellow but was a strong and
courageous man. He was very well respected in Yathrib and was
considered an intelligent and wise person. He was the chief of
his tribe but had spent his life worshipping idols.
When he reached the two friends, he spoke to them angrily. He
said that he wasnt happy that these two Muslims were speaking
to the people of Yathrib. He knew that many people had
accepted Islam but he felt that idol worship was still the correct
religion!
Musab knew that Usaid was very angry and might not listen to
them. Musab spoke to him in a soft and gentle voice. Brother,
he said, Why dont you sit with us for a few moments and listen
to what we have to say? Musab continued, If you dont like
what we say then do as you wish.
This was a reasonable idea and Usaid accepted it. He stuck his
spear into the sand and sat down to listen to what they had to
say. Musab explained to him about Islam and how it was the
correct way of life for human beings. He told him that Islam
encouraged people to be good and to leave all bad and evil
things. He spoke to him about Allah and about the day of
Judgement. He talked for a short time and then recited some
verses of the Qur'an.

The expression on Usaids face changed as the words
melted his heart. His anger went away and tears of joy
rolled down his cheeks. He had seen the truth and knew
that these wonderful words of wisdom could only be from
Allah. They moved him so much that he hugged Musab
and accepted Islam on the spot.
Usaid had experienced the truth and became a pious and
respected Muslim. He was kind and considerate and
would help the poor and needy. The people of Yathrib
loved him even more and respected this just and
honourable man. The words of wisdom and truth had
changed him just as it has changed billions of lives
throughout the world.
THE MESSAGE OF THE QUR'AN
Many people have studied Islam in the past. Whenever a
person comes to the Qur'an with an open and sincere
heart, Allah guides that person. This 'hidayah' - true
guidance - is a great gift and blessing from Allah.
We should spend a little time everyday studying the
Qur'an, not just reading the Qur'an in Arabic but also
understanding the message and guidance of the Qur'an.
The Qur'an may be over 1400 years old but the message
is still important and relevant today. This is part of the
miracle of the Qur'an.
May Allah guide us all to the truth and keep us on the
straight path. (Ameen)

Abdul Muttalib had been very sad at the death of his son,
Abdullah. He had loved Abdullah more than any of his
other sons. However, Abdullah had recently passed away
whilst returning from a trade journey. This was near
Yathrib and he was buried there.
What saddened Abdul Muttalib more was that Abdullah
had passed away so shortly after his marriage to the lady
Amina. It was a great match and everyone in Makkah had
been overjoyed with this wonderful union.
Amina was very sad by the sudden death of her husband.
She didnt want Abdullah to go on this trade journey in the
first place. Instead, she wanted to spend some time with
her new husband whom she loved dearly.
From all this sadness there suddenly came the sounds of
celebration coming from Aminas house. People rushed to
find Abdul Muttalib to give him the good news but he
could not be seen anywhere. They knew the best place to
find him would be at the Ka'bah so they rushed there.
When they finally met Abdul Muttalib they gave him the
good news of the birth of his grandson. Abdul Muttalib
was overjoyed at this wonderful news and thanked Allah
for this great blessing and happiness.
Little did Abdullah know that this child would become the
greatest person to walk on the face of this Earth. This
child grew up to become Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), the
last and final messenger of Allah.

On the day of Judgement, those people
who were just in ruling will be shaded
under the throne of Allah.
The people who were just will be seated
on pulpits made of light, in the presence
of Allah.
When a nation is ruled with justice, the
effects are felt all around. The effects
are even felt by animals.
One moment in the life of a just ruler is
better than sixty years of worship.
In Muslim history, even high profile
rulers were brought to court to answer
charges made by common people.
On the day of Judgement, Allah will
mete out justice to the oppressed -
oppressors will be brought to justice.

Islam teaches us good manners. The
Prophet (pbuh) said, "The best of you
are those who have the best manners."
The Prophet(pbuh) is our role model so
we should try to be like him. We should
take his advice on all matters.
We must always be honest and tell the
truth. We should never lie or deceive
anyone. We must be trustworthy.
We must be kind and helpful to all. We
mustn't look down on others nor think
we are superior to them.
We must show respect to our parents
by being helpful and kind to them. We
should listen to them and obey them.
We can't bully, hit or insult anyone.

Allah doesn't like the unjust.

and let not the hatred of others to
you make you swerve to wrong and
depart from justice. Be just: that is
closer to piety
This Qur'an Ayat tells us to always be just. If we
are just then this will bring us closer to Allah and
will help us be good Muslims.
When we deal with people we should be fair to
them. It might be that they are enemies or have
been bad to us in the past. We should not let this
influence our dealings with them.
If we are in a position of power, we should not
abuse this by showing favour to one person over
another because they might be a friend or relative.
al qur'an
In the books of seerah, we find that the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was a very
fair and just person. It was through these qualities that people saw the good
character and conduct of Muhammad (pbuh) and became Muslims. At the
conquest of Makkah, people saw the mercy and kindness of Muhammad
(pbuh) and thousands of people accepted Islam.
We too should study seerah and learn a valuable lesson from this great man.

The best struggle (is of)
that person who says the
words of truth in the
presence of a tyrant
ruler.
There are 3 different
parts to a Hadith
1.The Sanad is the
chain of narration -
from whom to whom
the information was
passed until it came to
the collector.

2.The Matn is the actual
text of the Hadith.
3.The collector is the
scholar who recorded
the Hadith.
These three parts of the
Hadith are scrutinised
by the scholars before
writing them down in
their books.
al hadith
The Prophet (pbuh) lived his life according to Islam. The Ahadith give
us guidance in many aspects of our personal and social life as well as a
deeper understanding of the Quran. They are a valuable learning tool.

Question: Why do we need hadith? Question: Why do we need hadith? Question: Why do we need hadith? Question: Why do we need hadith?
This Hadith advises that we must be
truthful in all matters. Even if we will
get into trouble or hardship because
of this, we must still speak the truth.
Life is a struggle to improve
ourselves and our deen. In this case,
it is the best struggle because you
are speaking the truth amidst the
falsehood. Sometimes it might be
easier to tell a small lie but it is more
righteous to tell the truth.
Telling the truth has great reward
from Allah on the Day of Judgement.
You will get more blessing and
reward when you tell the truth in a
difficult situation.

Abdullah just heard the Adhan for
Salah. Get him to the masjid as
quick as possible before Jamaat.
The Adhan is the call to prayer. It is used to let the
people know that the time for prayer has started and
to hurry to the Masjid. The Mu'azin reads the Adhan
out in a loud voice so that people can hear it.
Just before the main congregational prayer (jamaat),
the Mu'azin recites the Iqamat.
DO YOU KNOW THE ADHAN AND THE IQAMAT?

Back in the history of Islam, the Muslim empire was enormous.
Hundreds of thousands of people had accepted Islam causing
the Muslim world to spread from Arabia into many different
countries. Within a short space, the Islamic world had spread
into Africa and Asia so there were Muslims of many different
backgrounds, colours and languages.
However, there were many problems on one of its borders. The
people and tribes that were against Islam had moved to the
countries near the edge of the Muslim empire and would attack
and rob the people living there. They became a nuisance and
would cause a lot of bloodshed.
The Muslim rulers of the lands were very worried for the welfare
of these people who were both Muslims and non-Muslims. They
had lived in harmony in the past and enjoyed the benefit of living
in this peaceful land. All the peace had gone and the people
were now terrified.
The ruler decided to send a big army to guard this border and
sort these rebels and bandits out. Before long, a Muslim army
was sent there and peace was restored to this whole area.
However, all these different groups continued to attack the army
and eventually defeated it. Before very long, the state of the
country had returned to chaos with small armies coming into the
Muslim lands and attacking its people.
The king sent a second army, which resulted in the same
conclusion. Finally, the ruler decided to send his nephew,
Muhammad bin Qasim, to this land with another army to patrol
the area and to restore peace, harmony and prosperity.
Now Muhammad was just a youngster of seventeen but he loved
to study from his teachers in the Islamic colleges and
universities. He had a great love for Islam and would try and live
his life according to Islam.

When Muhammad bin Qasim got to the lands he managed to
restore peace very quickly. He then continued looking after the
people in those lands.
The army he commanded also loved and respected this
youngster. They loved the way he dealt with the people and the
concern he had for their welfare. They liked the way he resolved
all issues according to Islam. They loved the fact that he was
dedicated to Islam and was an intelligent and fair man.
Before long, many people began to move to the Muslim lands. All
the lands near by also became part of the Muslim world. The
people accepted Islam in their droves and before very long Islam
spread throughout all the neighbouring countries.
These people that accepted Islam long ago were from the lands
known today as Uzbekistan, Bangladesh, Pakistan, India and
Kashmir. It was through this youngster and his love for justice
and fairness that there are Muslims in these countries today.
LIVING BY ISLAM
Whenever a ruler has been just and has ruled according to
Islam, we find that there was prosperity and peace. There are
many cases throughout history which lead us to the same
conclusion.
The opposite case is also true. Whenever the rulers have been
corrupt and no longer act according to the noble teachings and
principles of Islam, there has been chaos and devastation.
We learn a valuable lesson from this. We should try our best to
live according to the teachings of Islam and be good and upright
people. If we live according to these principles, Allah will give us
prosperity and peace within our lives. Allah will also reward us in
the hereafter with Jannah (insha'Allah).

Hajj is the fifth pillar of Islam. Muslims
must make the pilgrimage to Makkah at
least once in their lifetime.
Although people can visit Makkah
anytime, we can only perform the Hajj
in the Month of Zul Hijjah.
During Umrah and Hajj, we walk around
the Ka'bah seven times then we drink
some zam zam.
We then walk between the two hills of
Safah and Marwah (Sa'i), 7 times. We
then cut our hair or shave our head
During Hajj (8th til 13th Zul Hijjah), we
spend time in Mina, Arafah and
Muzdalifa. We do the Ramy of Jamarat.
During these days, Hajjis wear the
Ihram- two pieces of white unstiched
cloth. Women just wear simple clothes.

Whenever Muslims pray,they face the
direction of the Ka'bah. The Ka'bah is in
Makkah in Saudi Arabia.
The Ka'bah was the first house for the
worship of Allah. Millions of people
come to Makkah annually.
The Ka'bah forms the shape of a cube.
It has no windows. The door is about
two meters from the ground.
The Ka'bah has a Hateem (looks like a
small semi-circular wall) near it. It was
originally part of the Ka'bah.
People go around the Ka'bah seven
times. They recite duas as they walk.
They also kiss the Hajar-e-Aswad.
The Hajar-e-Aswad is a stone which
came from heaven. It was white but the
sins of mankind have made it black.

that Hajj is Arafah.
People stand from noon til sunset in the
plains and slopes of mount Arafah. They
make dua to Allah.
Many people weep and ask Allah for
forgiveness and other such favours.
Allah listens to all duas.
Its like a scene from the last day where
all humans will stand before Allah,
awaiting their fate.
The day of Arafah is on the 9th day of
Zul Hijjah, the last month of the Islamic
year.
After the day of Arafah, the rest of the
Muslim world have a special day called
Eid-ul-Adha.

the people to perform the Hajj to this noble house
(i.e. the Ka'bah). So the Hajj was started by
Ibrahim (as) which was many hundreds of years
before Prophet Muhammad's (pbuh) time.
The people come from all corners of the world to
perform the Hajj. Every town and city in the world
seems to be sending Hajjis every year to Makkah.
Millions of Hajjis make pilgrimage every year.
People come to Hajj on different types of transport
such as ships, planes, buses and by walking.

Ibrahim (as) was a great prophet. Once he came to visit his son,
Ismael, in Makkah. He had not met Ismael for a while and was
longing to see him. Ismael had grown up into a young man with
his own small family. Ismael was returning home from hunting
when they both met. Ibrahim (as) and Ismael both embraced
each other and were so overjoyed.
The command was given to Ibrahim to build a house, dedicated
to the worship of Allah. Together Ibrahim and Ismael started
building this Masjid, known as the Ka'bah. They built it near the
spring of Zamzam, close to the hillocks of Safah and Marwah.
As they were building the Ka'bah, they were unable to reach the
higher parts of the wall. The stone Ibrahim was standing on
would rise up and down, allowing the wall to be built. To finish
the walls, they were needing a corner stone, but could not find
one suitable. Jibrael brought them a pure white stone from
Jannah to complete the building.
Ibrahim and Ismael completed the building and fixed the corner
stone. Ibrahim, by the command of Allah, then invited the whole
of Mankind to make the pilgrimage to this holy place.
For many years Makkah remained a city of peace and goodness.
Later, evil crept into the community and soon the people began
to put idols in and around the Ka'bah.
Ibrahim had dedicated this building to Allah, the one and only
true God of mankind. Mankind had polluted this pure truth by
putting false gods in this holiest of places.
It was only when Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) came did he
restore it back to its original state. However, the people have
been doing the pilgrimage to Makkah from the time of Ibrahim
until today. Billions of people have visited this holiest of places.

Ibrahim was a prophet of Allah. Even today he is
respected by all revealed religions of the world. There
are many great stories in his life and many lessons to
learn from this great man. There is one story in
particular which has great significance today.
Ibrahim had a dream in which he was commanded to
sacrifice his son to Allah. Ibrahim was very worried
because he loved his son so much. This dream
appeared to him a few times and he knew that this
dream was true. He was also a prophet and their
dreams are equal to revelation.
He spoke to his son Ismael who replied, Do as you
have been commanded. Ibrahim decided that he
would carry out the command to sacrifice his son, just
as he had been commanded to do in his dream.
Ibrahim set off with a heavy heart towards the place of
sacrifice. He travelled with his beloved son, Ismael, as
he made his way through the land. Suddenly, the
Shaytan appeared to him and tried to stop him from
obeying Allahs command. Shaytan tried many things
such as reminding him how much he loved his son.
The Shaytan appeared to Ibrahim three times and
each time Ibrahim chased him away by throwing small
stones at him. Finally, Ibrahim arrived at the place of
sacrifice; he blindfolded himself so that he would not
see the face of his beautiful son whom he loved dearly.

After the sacrifice he removed the blindfold. Ibrahim was
overjoyed when he saw his son standing there and a
sheep had been sacrificed instead. Allah had saved his
son from harm and Ibrahims sacrifice was also accepted.
The dream was a test from Allah to see if Ibrahim could
sacrifice everything for Allah. Ibrahim had passed this
difficult test.
During Hajj, the pilgrims still throw small stones at a place
called the Jamarat. They throw seven stones at each of
the three pillars, which represent the shaytan. They make
a sacrifice afterwards just as Ibrahim did. This is all part of
Hajj. In every country, Muslims make Qurabani (sacrifice)
and distribute the meat to the poor, their family and
friends. This special Qurbani is on this day of Eid ul Adha.
Many children get gifts on Eid. Draw your favourite toy.

of life which lasts a few years. Some
have been given more, some less.
Allah has already decided how long a
person will live before he or she is born.
Everything has been recorded.
This life is a test to see if a person
behaves well and lives according to
Allah's law.
Every soul shall die and will be raised
up again on the day of Judgement. All
mankind will face this day.
Allah will ask about everything we said
and did during our life on Earth. We will
account for everything.

Once our life ends we won't get a

our sins. The time for this is now.

By Al-Asr (the time),
Verily man is in loss, except those
who believe and do righteous deeds
and encourage each other to truth and
encourage each other to patience.
This complete surah gives us some very valuable
advice. We sometimes forget that life is running
very quickly out and that it will come to an end.
Everyone is at a loss with the exception of those
people who have the qualities described above. To
get true benefit from your time, you must believe
in Allah (tawheed) and also do good actions. Both
belief and action go hand in hand.
These people also encourage each other to do
good by remaining on truth and by being patient.
al qur'an
The message of the Qur'an is the most powerful words present on Earth. They
have moved and are moving people to reform their lives. It changed those that
are selfish and bad into decent and honourable people.
Millions throughout history have benefited from this guidance with more people
accepting Islam through the words of the Qur'an than any other means. The
message of the Quran is as important and powerful as it was 1400 years ago.

Maryam was a very pious and religious woman. She would
spend a lot of time in the worship of Allah and performing salah.
She was from a noble family who were descendants of the great
prophet Ibrahim through his son Ishaq.
Their family also had a great status amongst the people because
of their piety and kindness. They also looked after the masjid
where people would come and worship Allah. Everyone loved
and respected Maryam from her childhood until adulthood. They
all knew about her good character and her devotion to Allahs
deen. In fact, they had great respect for this family of Imran.
One day, Angel Jibrael appeared to Maryam and gave her good
news that Allah was going to bless her with a child. Maryam was
shocked at first because she did not have a husband. She was a
good woman who never kept company with men. The Angel
explained that whenever Allah decides on a matter, He just says
to it BE! and it is. Just as Allah created Adam (as) without a
mother or father, her son would be born without a father.
Maryam accepted the good news and was soon expecting a
child. Deep down she knew that the people would not easily
accept that the child was born miraculously - without a father.
She was a little worried. However, she was over-joyed that she
was blessed with a son who was going to be very pious and a
great servant of Allah.
When the child was born she took the child to her people. They
were very surprised to see a child in the arms of Maryam. The
people began asking many questions about the father and
Maryam knew some might not believe her that it was a miracle.
She simply pointed to the child and said he was born by the
command of Allah.

Baby Isa (as) then spoke from his mothers arms which
was his first miracle. He explained to the people that he
was a servant of Allah and that he had been granted a
book (injeel). He told them that Allah had made him a
prophet. Isa (as) encouraged the people to believe and
worship Allah and testify that Allah is their Lord.
The people were surprised by the baby Isa (as) talking in
Maryams arms. They were over-joyed that this miracle
happened in the family of Imran and Maryam remained
high in their esteem. They were pleased that Allah had
given Maryam such a blessed child who would be a great
prophet of Allah.
This was the first miracle of Isa (as) and Allah granted
him many miracles throughout his mission. Through these
miracles, the people believed in his prophethood and
many accepted his teachings. He was a great prophet.
However, after Isa (as) was taken away from the Earth,
the people changed the message and became confused
about Isa (as). They began believing in many things that
Isa (as) never taught and they began to stray from the
straight path. Allah then sent another mighty messenger
to teach the people about Allah Prophet Muhammad
(pbuh).
In Islam, we hold Isa (as) in the highest esteem as a
mighty servant and prophet of Allah. We do not believe
that he was the son of Allah because Allah does not have
any partners or family. Allah is unique in all respects.

The mosques of Allah shall be visited
and maintained by those who believe
in Allah and the Last Day, establish
regular prayers, and practise regular
charity, and fear none (at all) except
Allah. It is they who are expected to be
on true guidance.
This ayat of the Qur'an gives us the qualities of the
people who should maintain, look after and use
the Masjid. These are also the people that Allah
has told us are on true guidance.
All upright and honest practicing Muslims should
full implement Islam in every aspect of their lives.
They should visit the masjid frequently and help
maintain it. They must maintain it by giving from
their lawful earnings and by running the affairs of
the Masjid according to Quran and Sunnah. They
must fear Allah.
al qur'an
The Qur'an advises us on every aspect of our lives. It encourages us to run our
lives according to the guidance sent to us through the final Messenger
Muhammad (pbuh). The Qur'an is guidance and a code of life for all mankind.
History tells us that whenever people have followed this guidance they have
always been successful and both peace and justice has reigned.

Islam encourages Muslims, especially
males, to perform Salah with Jamaat
in the Masjid. This holds a greater
rank and reward than salah
performed on its own.
Whenever we pray, we should try
and pray in the local Masjid if
possible and at the correct time with
the Jamaat (congregational prayer).
If we are not near the Masjid, we
should still pray together. One

Our story starts back at the time of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) when he
was only thirty-six years old. He had not received prophethood yet and
was living a simple life with his family. However, the people had great
respect for Muhammad because he was just and fair in his dealing as well
as honest and kind.
The Kabah had originally been built by prophet Ibrahim for the worship of
Allah. That was a very long time ago and after all these years, the Kabah
needed some urgent repairs to it. There had been floods, which had
weakened the walls, and of course the years had taken its toll on the
building.
The Makkan tribes got together and agreed to rebuild the Kabah. They
would rebuild the walls and make them higher. They would also put a roof
on it and make the door much higher off the ground. This would make it
stronger and more secure against robbers.
The Makkans also decided that they would only use money that they had
earned through lawful means. This meant that any money they got from
wrong means, such as stealing and robbery, would not be used.
Before very long, the work was started and the wall was broken down to
the green cobbled foundations. When they tried to move the foundations
there was a shake and they realised that they should not go any further.
The Makkans then started to rebuild the Ka'bah with all its modifications.
The Makkans worked very hard and it came to the stage where they had
to put the Hajar-i-Aswad, the black stone, back in its place. All the tribes
wanted the honour of fitting the black stone and before long there was a
major disagreement. Each tribe began to put its case why they should be
allowed to replace the stone.
A few days dragged on and it came to the stage that the Makkans were
ready to fight amongst each other just to decide who should fit this sacred
black stone in its place. A wise man in their meeting tried to prevent the
bloodshed so he suggested that the next person who walked into the
mosque should decide amongst the tribes and they would all agree.
The Makkans were waiting for the next person to come to the Kabah.
They were very excited especially when they saw Muhammad coming
towards the Kabah.

m
When the Makkans saw Muhammad (pbuh) approaching, they began
shouting, Al-Amin is here! Al-Amin is here! They knew that he was very
just and would make the best decision.
The Makkans all presented their cases and Muhammad listened to them
all. He then asked someone to place a cloth on the ground and he placed
the black stone in the middle. He asked all the leaders of each tribe to lift
this cloth and carry it to the place where the stone was going to be fitted.
The tribes carried it to the Kabah and Muhammad (pbuh) fitted the stone
in its correct place. Every tribe was satisfied that they took part in the
honour of replacing the black stone and re-building the Kabah.
The Makkans were unable to complete the Kabah because they ran out
of money from lawful means. They left one part of the Kabah un-built
which was the Hateem. The Hateem was originally part of the Kabah but
now it remains a small semi-circular wall near the Kabah.
The first mosque for the worship of Allah was the Kabah and all other
mosques face the Kabah. When we pray, we also face the Ka'bah.

to deliver Allah's command.
We learn from the Qur'an that every
nation was sent a prophet. No nation

The prophets were good people and
never committed sins nor told any lies.
They were an example of piety.
The Prophets were like brothers who

Angels have different jobs. Some angels
continuously praise Allah or are
engaged in some other act of worship.
Angel Jibrael is the leader of the angels
and had the job of bringing revelation
down to the Earth.
Angel Jibrael also helped the prophets
on Earth by Allah's command e.g.
Jibrael fought in the battle of Badr.
We can't see angels but they can take

they believe this was not from Allah. No one has been able to do so since then.

Malik is the oldest

Malik lived very close to

Imam Malik would
teach people all aspects
of Hadith and Fiqh. He
was a contemporary of
Imam Abu Hanifa and is
known as one of the
four reknown Imams.
Imam Malik's hadith did
not record the sanad
because he lived very
close to the time of our
Prophet (pbuh) and it
wasnt necessary to
provide the source.

The Qur'an is the most important form of guidance and knowledge. It

Surely the best example for us is

He is an example in piety, justice

Allah commanded the angels to bow down to Adam. The angels
always obeyed Allah and so they bowed down to Adam.
However, Iblis was with the angels but he was from the Jinn. Like
the angels, he was a servant of Allah but he refused to bow

Iblis had pride in him and he thought to himself, Why should I
bow down to Adam when I am better than him? Iblis was made

and arrogance caused Iblis to be expelled from heaven. From
that day onwards he became an enemy of Adam and all mankind.

Iblis wanted to take revenge on Adam by causing Adam to
disobey Allah. So Iblis hatched a plan where he would trick
Adam and cause him to eat from the tree. Iblis spoke to Adam
and Hawah telling them that if they ate from the tree they would
live forever. Adam and Hawah did not intend to disobey Allah but
the sweet lies of Iblis managed to persuade them to eat from the
tree.
Allah admonished Adam and Hawah by expelling them to the
Earth. They remained on Earth for a very long time. They would
ask Allah for forgiveness and finally after many years Allah
accepted their forgiveness in a place near Makkah (Jabal-I-
Rahmah).
Iblis then asked Allah for permission to remain on Earth so that
he could misguide the offspring of Adam. Allah granted Iblis this
request and Iblis, from that day, has tried his best to misguide all
mankind. Iblis wants Hell to be filled with the children of Adam.
He is always thinking of new ways he can trick humans into
being evil.

All the prophets of Allah have warned human beings to watch out
for Iblis, who is also known as the shaytan. The prophets taught
their people that Iblis will try and trick you and take you away
from the truth. Iblis will cause you to disobey Allah just as he
tricked Adam into disobeying Allah.
The prophets taught us to be aware of Iblis and to try our best to
stay on the straight path. The prophets also taught us that if we
ever get misled and do any sin, we should ask Allah for
forgiveness and promise ourselves that we will avoid this sin in
the future.
All the prophets warned the people that shaytan is an open
enemy of humans and always be aware of his tricks. This is also
a warning to us all to be aware of the trickery of the Iblis and to
remain on the path that our Prophet (pbuh) showed us.
THIS PLACE IS WHERE ADAM AND HAWAH WERE
FORGIVEN BY ALLAH. PEOPLE HAVE CONSTRUCTED A
PILLAR AS A REMINDER OF THIS GREAT FAVOUR OF
ALLAH UPON ADAM (AS).
