Crime Wave

Murder, looting, plundering, fraud, corruption … and the seemingly never ending list of misery and torment that has become the order of the day. The prevalence of such conditions have become a way of life. Unless the victims were near and dear, sensational headlines depicting murder and mayhem also do not evoke shock and disbelief. While the crime rate continues to spiral out of control, debates, discussions and conferences abound as to what are the factors leading to this deplorable condition. The debates and discussions will continue but unless the only real solution is not adopted, no difference will occur in the prevailing situation. The question is who has the solution and what is it?

Amr bin Awf (R.A.) relates that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) : "I do not fear poverty for you (the Ummah) but what I really fear is that the worldly wealth may be increased for you as it was increased for those before you. Hence you will compete with one another for the world just as those before you competed with one another for it. It will then destroy you just as it destroyed them" (Sahih Bukhari).
   

Vulgarity

A Mu'min (Believer) is one who displays the highest akhlaq (character). Thus, he will rid himself of all evil qualities. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) has highlighted some of these evil qualities when he declared: "A Believer does not taunt others, or curse people, or indulge in vulgar or obscene talk" (Tirmizi).

A Mu'min's heart, and tongue are both clean. He does not think of vulgar or obscene things nor does he express such things with his tongue. It is therefore tragic that some people take pride in using vulgar language. This is far from the akhlaq of a Believer. We should adopt the akhlaq of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), that most exemplary personality who was never vulgar or obscene.

"What is the way to salvation?" This was the very concise question that Hazrath Uqba bin Aamir (R.A.) posed to Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam).  Subhanallah! This was the main concern of the Sahabah (R.A.) — how to gain salvation from the fitnas (evil and mischief) of this world as well as the torments of the Hereafter. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) gave a most concise reply to the concise question. He said: "Control your tongue, let your house be sufficient for you and cry over your sins (Targheeb)." This is an all time remedy for remaining safe from the fitnas of this world and the next.

Q: When eating and drinking many people have the habit of leaving a little of the food or drink in the utensil. For instance some tea or soft drink will be left over in the cup or some grains will be left over in the plate. If a person wipes his utensil clean with his finger and eats the little specks of food, he is regarded as lacking manners. What is the correct procedure in this regard?

Imagine the following scene. You have your hard earned capital to invest. You go for advice to an experienced person who is an expert in the field. The expert says to you: "If only you knew what profits you will earn if you invest in that business, you would put all your money into it." What will be your reaction? You would certainly rush to do so. Everyone naturally would heed the advice of an expert since we all want the maximum profits.
