Explanation of the hadith by mulla Ali Qari

وعن أبي هريرة أن رسول الله – صلى الله عليه وسلم – قال : ثلاث ) أي : من الخصال ( منجيات ) أي : أسباب نجاة وخلاص ( وثلاث مهلكات فأما المنجيات : فتقوى الله ) أي : خوفه ( في السر والعلانية ، والقول بالحق في الرضا والسخط ) أي : لا يبدل القول الحق لأجل محبته ورضاه عن أحد أو سخطه وغضبه على أحد ، ( والقصد ) أي : التوسط في النفقة ( في الغنى والفقر ) أي : في الحالين بالاجتناب عن طرفي الإفراط والتفريط ( وأما المهلكات : فهوى ) . أي : للنفس ( متبع ) : احتراز عن متروك ، فإن مخالفة النفس من أكبر المنجيات كما أن متابعتها من أكبر المهلكات ( وشح ) أي : بخل ( مطاع ) أي : مطاوع له معمول بمقتضاه ، فقيل : الشح منع الواجب ، وقيل أكل مال الغير ، وقيل العمل بمعاصي الله ، وقيل الشح مما في يد غيرك . والبخل مما في يدك والأظهر أن الشح هو البخل المقرون بالحرص ( وإعجاب المرء بنفسه ) أي : باستحسان أعمالها وأحوالها أو مالها وجمالها وسائر ما يتوهم أنه من كمالها ( وهي ) أي : الخصلة الأخيرة ( أشدهن ) أي : أعظمهن وزرا وأكثرهن ضررا لأنه يتصور أن يتوب من متابعة الهوى ، ومن رذيلة البخل ، والمعجب مغرور ومزين فهو محبوب لا يرجى زواله كالمبتدع ، فإنه قل أن يتوب من بدعته . وقال الطيبي : لأن المعجب بنفسه متبع هواه ومن هوى النفس الشح المطاع . قال تعالى : ومن يوق شح نفسه فأولئك هم المفلحون حيث أضاف الشح إلى النفس ( روى البيهقي الأحاديث الخمسة في شعب الإيمان ) .

Common mistakes in Ramadhan:

1. Drinking “vimto” on a daily basis

– Why: It contains high amounts of sugar, additives and colarants
– Solution: If you have to, drink it twice a week maximum

2. Drinking large amounts of water at iftaar time

– Why: Filling the stomach with water is more strenuous to it than with food.
– Solution: have a few sips at iftaar then a glass after every two hours.

3. Exercising directly after iftaar.

– Why: the body’s blood flow is concentrated around the stomach at that time.
– Solution: Exercise after two hours of eating to ease digestion.

4. Chewing and swallowing food fast.

– Why: chewing food slowly can speed up digestion and help maintain your weight

5. Having dessert directly after iftaar

– Why: they make you drowsy and sleepy
– Solution: leave at least a two hour gap between iftaar and dessert to stay fresh and awake for ishaa and taraweeh prayers

6. Consuming foods with high amounts of sodium

– Why: Sodium triggers thirst through out the fasting hours of the day
– Solution: instead, eat foods that are high in potassium, they retain water and supress your thirst.

# Bananas are high in potassium. A banana at Suhoor time can control your thirst level through out the day.

# Best sources of potassium for Suhoor time:
– bananas
– milk
– dates
– avocados
– dried peaches
– pistachios
– pumpkin
– peas
– dark chocolate

# Worst choices for Suhoor:
– biriani
– kebab
– pizza
– fast food in general
– cheese

# Best choices for Suhoor:
– potato
– rice
– dates
– whole grain bread
– banana

# Drinking lots of water at suhoor is important, but not as much as drinking it through out your non-fasting hours.

# Drink a glass of water every two hours from iftaar time till imsaak

So what is Christmas really about?

Is the tasbeeh/masbaha a bidda?

I find it strange some of the salafi brothers who follow a particular narrative dictated from Saudi, can out rightly label using the tasbeeh a bidda?
