People are often booking tickets to various places. What about booking a ticket to Jannah? Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said to Hazrath Anas (Radiyallahu Anhu). “ O my beloved son, keep your heart clean from harbouring malice, for verily that is my sunnah.” He then said: “The one who loves my sunnah loves me. The one who loves me will be with me in Jannah.” (Tabrani)
Thus the ticket to Jannah is to practice on the Sunnah of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam). Among his extremely important sunnats is to keep the heart free of malice.

Summary of Letter:
Respected Mufti Saheb
Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuh
Zaid (not his real name) is a Hafiz who knows his Qur’an very well. He requests the interpretation of the following dream: He dreamt that he was extremely thirsty. Suddenly a learned person presented a glass of water aying: “Watch what you drink – and leave some for me because my medicine is in it.” When Zaid took the glass and brought it close to his mouth, the water had suddenly turned to blood and pus which had a terrible stench. Zaid was shocked. With extreme dislike he moved the glass away. At this point he woke up from his sleep.

Imaam Abu Hanifa (Rahmatullahi Alayh) was among the greatest jurists that the ummah has ever seen after the illustrious Sahaba (Radiyallahu Anhum). It was his distinguished position among the fuqaha (jurists) of his era that earned him the title “Imaam-al-Aa'zam” (The greatest Imaam of that era and the period thereafter).
Born in 80 AH, Imaam Abu Hanifa (Rahmatullahi Alayh) had the good fortune of meeting Hadhrat Anas (Radiyallahu Anhum) and several other Sahaba (Radiyallahu Anhum). Thus he joined the ranks of the Tabieen (those who met the Sahaba (Radiyallahu Anhum)).

I recently read some past issues of the Al-Haadi. I find the hard-line attitude against Muslim women wearing western fashion as extremist. Many Islamically conscious people wear such clothing or allow their family members to wear them. Why has this extremist position been adopted? (Summary of question)

"Lifestyle" is defined as "a style of living that reflects the attitudes and values of a person or group" (Wikipedia). Hence one’s priorities and preferences in life as well as mundane things such as one’s manner of eating or one’s choice of clothing, etc. are all part of one’s lifestyle and reflect one’s values and attitudes.
