Forgotten Sunnah

Ways of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) miraculous,
Couldn’t read or write,
Science 1000 years to investigate healthy ways to live,
Man whose ancestry full of raising live-stock,
Understood stocks were Shaitan,
New York Stock Exchange used as slave selling tunnels,
Prophet Muhammad’s (pbuh) closest friend a Black Abyssinian,

Business man,
Husband to one of the wealthiest women of the time,
Instinctively knew Riba (interest) was Civilizations downfall,

When this man died,
Laid on his bed,
Aisha (ra) in authentic narration said Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) laughed,
He knew Muslims after him would forget traditions,
Which is why Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said,
“Whoever revives an aspect of my Sunnah that is forgotten after my death,
He will have a reward equivalent to that of the people who follow him,
Without it detracting in the least from their reward.”
(Tirmidhi 7/443)

We have men dressing up as women,
Women pretending to be men,
Society allows homosexuality to be lawful,
In France modesty banned,
Muslims themselves forgetting to defend Muslim land,
Ways of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) forgotten,
Tradition thought to be small,
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) captured Prisoners of War,
Shura decided fate,
One advice sell them for ransom,
Second advice give each prisoner to his family member whose Muslim,
Kill them to show Muslim’s will not deviate from Allah (s.w.t),

Small ways of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) forgotten,
Um Habibah (may Allah be pleased with her) said:
Allah’s Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him) said,
“Whoever prays four before Dhur and four after it,
Allah makes him prohibited for the fire.”
[Collected by Abu Dawud (1269),
At-Tirmithi (427),
An-Nisa’ (1818),
Ibn Majah (1160)]
(Shaykh Al-Albani graded this hadeeth as being Sahih in his checking in At-Tirmithi)

Don’t believe,
Something simple can keep you out of hell-fire?
Youth being told Jihad the only way,
Die as a martyr and Jennah will be where you wake,

I ain’t saying Jihad is not right,
We gotta’ fight for our right to live,
We gotta’ fight for our right to establish law of Allah (s.w.t),
We ain’t asking you to become Muslim,
We asked politely for you to leave,
We coulda’ did what the Europeans did,
Commit Genocide upon continents,
America’s motto,
Do and Ask Questions Later,

Give words of wisdom to the youth,
Desire to go and fight for the cause of Allah (s.w.t),
Helpful words of thought,
It is narrated on the authority of Abu Hurayrah (ra) who said,
That when the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said:
“If one of you puts on shoes,
Let him begin with the right.
And when he takes it off,
Let him begin with the left.
And let him put them both on or let him take them off both.”

What does this have to do with Allah (s.w.t)?
Think off sins,
Which hand pure?
Which is not?
Which hand will you receive your book?

Put on shoes starting from the right,
Eat with your right,
Walk into the masjid with your right,
Gain good deeds with your right,
Tossing bad deeds from your left,
Take off your shoes,
Start with the left,
Worshiping Allah (s.w.t) in everything we do,

As you fight,
Protect Muslim lands
Mothers walk Children down London streets,
Afraid of the rain,
Afraid of natural law,
It is narrated by Imaam Muslim,
In his authentic compilation from the hadith of Anas (ra),
He said: It rained upon us as we were with the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him).
The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) unveiled his garment (from a part of his body),
Until the rain fell on him.
We said: Messenger of Allah,
Why did you do this?
He said: Because it (the rainfall) has just come from the Exalted Lord…

Something simple,
Yet we never follow,
You don’t believe me?
Haakim in his book Al-Mustadrak narrates this hadith with the following words:
“When the rain came down from the heavens,
He (The Prophet May peace be upon him) used to remove his garment from his back,
Until the rain fell on it (his back).”

What does Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) mean ‘Exalted Lord’?
What has Allah (s.w.t) created for us?
Earth, space, and time,
Everything in between,
Beautiful flowers scenting the earth with sweet fragrance,
Mentioned in the explanation of Sahih Muslim of Imaam Nawawiy,
By saying:
Rainfall is a mercy which Allah has created,
Therefore use it as a blessing,

Do we use what we have been given as a blessing or misuse it?
Busy killing without fearing Allah (s.w.t),
Beheading non-muslims savagely,
Ways of war strict,
Written in hadith,
Can’t touch places of worship,
Not allowed to kill the innocent,
Allowed to fight soldiers,
Rabbi’s, monks, and priests,
Supposed to treat with respect,
Battle is with the military,
With those trying to oppress you,
If he drops his gun,
Says Shahada,
Doesn’t mean it,
Forbidden to hurt the man,
Khalid bin Waleed (ra) similar situation,

I don’t mean to repeat,
But this is important,
Imaam Ashafi’ee mentions in his book Al-Umm:
It is narrated by Ibn Abbaas (ra):
That the rain fell from the heavens so he told his servant,
Bring out his mattress and saddle so that the rain may fall on it.
Abu Jawzaa’ then asked Ibn Abbas:
Why are you doing that, may Allah have mercy on you?
He (Ibn Abbas) then said:
Do you not read the book of Allah:
“And we have sent down from the heavens water that is blessed”
[Surah 50, Verse 9]

If rain fell,
Would you not want the blessing?
If the water is blessed,
Would you not like to be blessed?

Fight overseas,
I do not wish for you to get the wrong picture,
Striving as other companions strove,
Doing the duty Muslims are afraid to embark on,
I give advice,
When it is time for Jummah,
Practice Sunnah,
‘Umar ibn ‘Ata bin Abi Al-Khuwar narrated,
That Nafi bin Jubair sent him to As-Sa’ib bin Yazid,
The maternal nephew of Namir,
Asking him regarding something Mu’awiyah had seen him do in the prayer.

He said: “I prayed Jum’uah with Mu’awiyah in his enclosure and when he finished,
I stood up in my place and prayed.
When he went inside he sent for me and said,
Do not repeat what you have just done.
If you pray Jum’uah don’t join it with another prayer until you speak or exit the masjid.
The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) ordered us to separate between prayers.
One prayer mustn’t be joined with another,
Until you speak or exit.
[Collected by Muslim (883)]

As you sit in the masjid,
Give advice to brothers,
Do not perform rakats in the same place,
Move to another part of the masjid,

We forget parts of Sunnah,
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) laid on his bed,
Those around him believed he would live,
When Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) died,
It was not believed,

Be of those who believe,
Follow Sunnah,
No matter how small,
Seek knowledge,

When I hear brothers and sisters saying,
‘I only follow Quran,
If it does not say it in Quran’
I do not believe’,

How do you pray?
It ain’t in Quran,
It is in hadith,

Quran from Allah (s.w.t),
Allah (s.w.t) told us follow Prophet Muhammad (pbuh),

Please Allah (s.w.t),
Accept teachings from Prophet Muhammad (pbuh),
Hand in hand,

Sunnah comes in small and big gifts,
Choose to follow both,
No matter what your jihad is…
