This is a summary of a lesson I learnt while listening to a Youtube Lecture. The aim is to retain this information for myself and to share it with other people so that they can learn and get a closer relationship with their faith and for those who don’t know about Islam , to welcome them to researching Islam. 

The author started his book with the Basmallah. Basmallah was something used in the early religions ( Prophet Nuh & Prophet Sulaymaniyah used it). The Scholars have difference of opinions as to whether the Basmallah is an ayah of the Quran. What’s the purpose of Basmallah? 
It’s purpose is to distinguish one Surah from the other expect for Surah Tawbah. There are 2 reasons as to why the author of this book started his book with the Basmallah

  1. He is following the Quran
  2. He is following the Sunnah of the Prophet ( SAW)
To follow the Prophet ( SAW) , you follow 3 things 

  1. His Speech
  2. Action
  3. Consent( Allowed to be done)
The author here is following the Prophet (SAW) in His action as the Prophet (SAW) used to write letters starting with Basmallah. There is a Hadith where the Prophet ( SAW) said “ Every affair or issue that you don’t start with Bismillah, it’s disconnected which means there would be no Barakah( Blessing) in it . This is a weak Hadith by the way. 
You should start with a Basmallah when writing a letter and a Hamdala( Alhamdulillah) when delivering a Khutbah ( Lecture) 

1st Introduction

The author points out 4 obligations ( Individual Obligation) ; 

  1. To have knowledge of 3 things 

  • Allah (SWT)
  • The Prophet (SAW)
  • The Religion of Islam 

All of these knowledge has to be with Evidence

2. To implement that knowledge ( Act according to Knowledge)

When we say Implement, there are 2 things 

  • Issues relating to Halal and Haram( Implementing physically)Fiqh Issues & Aqeedah IssuesImplementing in your heart ( Believe it’s Haram& Halal : Aqeedah)

3. Calling to it ( Daawah)Daawah has 2 things 

  • Means Objective

In the Quran, the means are set and cannot be changed. The path owned by the Prophet ( SAW)What is the objective of Daawah? The objective is to call to Allah.4. Patience ( Patience in the 3 aforementioned Obligations)The evidence of all 4 Obligations are in the Quran specifically Surah Al -Asr. The author also took these 4 obligations from the works of Ibn Al Qayyim( RA)
Next time , I’ll cover the 2nd introduction and the 3rd Introduction In shaa Allah. This is a summary of what I learnt and if you find any mistake , please let me know so that I could correct it In Shaa Allah.

Knocking On Al-Fatah's Doors (The Opener)

The moment I came across the following series which go into depth the nam es of Allah, my life changed for the better. Not only did I grow more intimate towards my Lord, but the amount of joy and sweetness I got out of it is  unexplainable. . I urge all my readers to go and read the above article and then the series as one of the names that I want to talk about today is Al-Fatah(The opener) and the reasons why I want to share how it changed my life.  I have been dealing with a mental block for almost 3 years now and although I do not want to complain to other than Allah, I'll try and paint a picture for my audience to understand. I would set my mind to do something like reading a book and I would read it for a couple of pages and then boom, I would put it aside. I would start to feel this immense shadow of tiredness and feelings of procrastination and would therefore stop there. I didn't understand why

What Blue Line? ( Part 1)

 Sergeant Paddy is notoriously known for his anger issuess coupled with his ego on top of a racist and supremecist attitude. Many people do not know that he also deals in drugs and has significant ties to the human trafficking business in his city and state. Buckle up and expect to be filled with rage as this is a story about the dark side of human nature and the power of corruption. Under a bridge on a late afternoon sits Sergeant Paddy and his lapdog Officer Shamrock drinking his coffee while the other smokes a cigarette. This was the spot chosen earlier that day to inspect a load of 'meat' ( a term to describe the women and children trafficked). You would be asking yourself how can such an abhorrent crime be happening in broadlight but don't forget that this man is the head of a unit which by now can be described as a cartel with badges. The city was awash with drugs, crime was skyrocketing and the streets were filled with addicts.  The head of the Police department,a wo

What Blue Line ( The Witch)

  This is the story of the woman who was just known as the 'Witch' instead of her name Gabriella, the head of the Police Department of the City of Hagora. A city once celebrated for innovation and technology now harbors a sinister secret.  Let me describe to you the character of this woman by the nickname The Witch. She has no feminine qualities you would typically find in women nor does she have any masculine qualities. She’s in a state of limbo , always in doubt of herself as she knows what she is involved in is wrong . No amount of makeup can hide the ugliness of her soul projected on her face. She has no sincere bone in her body and even her children are repulsed by her character. She is double faced in her dealings with the residents of her city she polices. She is a master of deception,playing a double game with the unsuspecting residents she's meant to protect. She is involved in dark magic and uses it against people that she doesn’t like. She has access to their DNA
