5 Minute Madressa for the 8th of Rabi Ul Awwal

(1) Islaamic History Hadhrat Isa (AS) is raised alive to the heavens
Hadhrat Isa (AS) travelled from town to town and village to village in an effort to propagate his Deen and his popularity and religion started to spread amongst the people. The Jews regarded his increasing popularity to be a threat to them so they turned the king of the time against him by claiming that Hadhrat Isa (AS) was altering the teachings of the Torah and turning people away from religion. The king eventually issued orders that Hadhrat Isa (AS) was to be arrested and crucified. Hadhrat Isa (AS) was with his disciples in a house when soldiers surrounded the house to capture him. All of the disciples managed to escape and Hadhrat Isa (AS) was physically raised out of the house and taken to the heavens. When the soldiers sent one of their men inside the house, Allaah transformed his appearance into that of Hadhrat Isa (AS). The Jews were therefore fooled into believing that he was Hadhrat Isa (AS) and had him crucified.
(2) Rasulullaah (SAW)’s Miracle The letter
Hadhrat Ali (RA) reports that Rasulullaah (SAW) sent him, Hadhrat Zubyr (RA) and Hadhrat Miqdaad (RA) to a place called Rowdha Khaakh to confiscate a secret letter that a woman was transporting to Makkah. The letter contained information about military arrangements that Rasulullaah(AS) was engaged in. The three raced their horses until they reached the place and asked the woman to hand the letter over. When she lied that she had no letter with her, Hadhrat Ali (RA) threatened to search her person if she did not comply. She eventually produced the letter that was hidden inside her plait.
(3) A Fardh Articles of faith
Rasulullaah (SAW) stated that no person can be a Mu’min without believing in the following four factors: (1) that there is none worthy of worship but Allaah (2) that Muhammad (AS) is Rasul (the Messenger of Allaah) (3) that people will be brought back to life after death and (4) that everything has been predestined (Taqdeer)
[Tirmidhi 2145, from Hadhrat Ali (RA)]
(4) A Sunnah Immediate Istikhaarah
When any decision needed to be taken urgently, Rasulullaah (SAW) recited the following Du’aa:

اَللّٰهُمَّ خِرْ لِيْ وَاخْتَرْ لِيْ

TRANSLATION: O Allaah! Choose for me and inspire me with the right choice.
[Tirmidhi 3516, from Hadhrat Abu Bakr (RA)]
Focus on the heart after reciting this Du’aa and then act on what the heart says at the time.
(5) An Important Act and its Virtue Sins are forgotten through repentance
Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “When a person repents for a sin, Allaah causes the angels to forget it as well as the limbs of his body and the place of the earth where it occurred. When he ultimately appears before Allaah on the Day of Qiyaamah, there shall be no witnesses to the sin.”
[Targheeb wat Tarheeb 4459, from Hadhrat Anas (RA)]
(6) A Sin Spending for show
Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “(Such people are) Those who spend their wealth to show people and who neither believe in Allaah nor in the Last Day. The one whose friend is Shaytaan, (should bear in mind that) he is the worst (most evil) of friends indeed (because he leads people only to Jahannam)”.
[Surah Nisaa, verse 38]
(7) This World Bounties are lost because if disobedience
Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “Plenty were the gardens and springs that they (the people of Fir’oun) left behind along with the plantations, palatial homes and articles of pleasure (luxuries) which they enjoyed. So it (their story) was. (As always,) We then made others successors to this (for others to enjoy). Neither the sky nor the earth wept for them (for the people of Fir’oun when they were destroyed), and (when the time for their destruction arrived,) they were denied reprieve (because it was too late)”.
[Surah Dukhaan, 25-29]

(8) The Aakhirah The lightest punishment to be suffered by the people of Jahannam
Rasulullaah (SAW) said that the lightest punishment to be suffered by the people of Jahannam will be a person who will be made to wear shoes of fire, which will cause his brains to boil like a pot. He will be suffering the lightest punishment, but will think that his punishment is the worst.
[Muslim 517, from Hadhrat Nu’maan bin Baseer]
(9) Cures from the Qur’aan and Rasulullaah (SAW) Cow’s milk
Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “Drink cow’s milk. Because it grazes on every type of plant, it is a cure for every illness.”
[Mustadrak 8224, from Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Mas’ood (RA)]
(10) Advice from
Rasulullaah r
Rasulullaah r said, “Study the subject of inheritance and teach it to others because it is half of all knowledge and shall be the first branch of knowledge to be taken away from this world.”
[Ibn Maajah 2719, from Hadhrat Abu Sa’eed Khudri (RA)]
