Rakan Selawat Seal Of The Prophet

He was a guide for all people
And the mercy to the universe
Was a guide for all people
God's peace and blessings on him

He was a seal of the prophet
The last breaking the house of prophethood
He was the last of the prophet
God's peace and blessings on him

He was the patron of the poor
Always helping widows and orphans
A great patron of the poor
God's peace and blessings on him

He was a striver against evil
And he fought and he won
To give right to all people
God's peace and blessings on him

He was a stranger to this world
For his aim was the hereafter
He kept little for this world
God's peace and blessings on him

Haya is an Arabic word derived from the word hayat, which means life.This term covers a wide number of concepts. In English, it may be translated as modesty, shyness, self-respect, bashfulness, shame, honor, humility, etc. The original meaning of haya refers to a bad and uneasy feeling accompanied by embarrassment, caused by one’s fear of being exposed for some unworthy or indecent conduct.

Islamically, haya is an attribute which encourages believers to avoid anything distasteful. It keeps them from being neglectful in giving others what is due upon them, and if for any reason they are not able to keep up with their commitments, then they will feel extremely uncomfortable and ashamed about this. The main reason for this uncomfortable feeling would be the knowledge that they had displeased Allah.

Haya plays a huge role in the lives of Muslims because it is a very important part of our Iman (faith/belief). If we do not have any form of haya within us then it is most likely that our Iman is very weak. It states in the following hadith:

Narrated by Abu Huraira (ra): The Prophet (SAW) said, “Faith (Belief) consists of more than sixty branches (i.e. parts). And Haya is a part of faith.” (Bukhari)

We also learn from the Prophet (saw) the importance of having haya and how it is not something to be ashamed of, but instead, one should be concerned and embarrassed if they do not possess it within their character.

Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar (ra): The Prophet (saw) passed by a man who was admonishing his brother regarding Haya and was saying, “You are very shy, and I am afraid that might harm you.” On that, Allah’s Apostle (SAW) said, “Leave him, for Haya is (a part) of Faith.” (Bukhari)
The above hadith is also a form of proof that “shyness” is not just something regarding women but also an attribute that believing men should have, for it is an indication of their fear of Allah and an indication of the value of their Deen.

We often find that shyness, humility and bashfulness are frowned upon by our society as a weakness or a lack of confidence when, in fact, these are qualities of a dignified upright human being, who is conscious of his actions and his responsibilities in life.

There are two different types of haya— the good haya and the bad. The good haya is to be ashamed to commit a sin or a thing which Allah and His Messenger (saw) has forbidden. The bad haya is to feel ashamed to do a thing which Allah and His Messenger (saw) has ordered us to do.

There are different types of good haya. For example, a believer should build his personality and character with the good dimensions of haya. The most important is that he must be shy of doing ANYTHING displeasing to Allah (SWT) with the belief that he will have to answer for all his deeds. If one develops a sense such as this one, it will help the believer to obey all of Allah’s commandments and to stay away from sins.

Once the believer realizes that Allah (SWT) is watching us all the time and we will have to answer to every move we make in this dunya (world), he would not neglect any order from Allah or His Messenger (saws). So the stronger this sense of haya becomes, the more it motivates one to make sure that Allah (SWT) doesn’t see him doing anything prohibited. The way to develop this haya is that one must keep learning and absorbing more knowledge and applying it to his life. Another type of haya is more of a social aspect concerning others besides Allah (SWT). Normally these things often come in regard with one’s relationship with family. For instance, a child not wanting to do something displeasing to his mother, or a wife not wanting to do something displeasing to her husband, or even a student who is careful about saying something incorrect in front of his teacher are all forms of haya.

Last but not least is the type of haya in which the believers become shy of themselves. This is when they have reached the peak of their Iman. For example, if they do, say, or see anything wrong or even commit the tiniest sin, they start to feel extremely bad and embarrassed or they feel extreme guilt in their hearts. This builds a high degree of selfconsciousness and that is what strengthens a Muslim’s commitment to Allah (SWT).

After discussing the various types of “beneficial” haya, it is time to discuss the type of haya which is not only against the teachings of our Prophet (saw), but it is also solid proof of the weakness of someone’s Iman. This negative aspect revolves around a person’s shamefulness or shyness of doing something that Allah (SWT) has ordered us to do through the Qur’an or our Prophet’s (saw) Sunnah. This constitutes the shamefulness or embarrassment of doing a lawful act or something that is ordered upon us from Allah (SWT). This means that someone does not follow an obligation of Islam due to the fact of being shy in front of others about it. This is totally forbidden because then one is giving the people of this dunya more respect than the One who Created this whole universe. An example of this type of bad haya is to neglect making one’s prayer in a public place due to being embarrassed in front of others. Another example would be that many sisters feel embarrassed to wear hijab for fear of being laughed at or made fun of. If someone really had haya they would never contradict ANYTHING that Allah (SWT) has ordained upon us even if they found it a test and a trial.

Modesty (haya) and maintaining one’s honor and dignity are of primary importance in preserving the moral fiber of any society. This is why modesty has been called the ornament of a woman, which protects her from many sins and which prevents ill-intentioned men from daring to have bad thoughts about her. This haya has been made a part of her nature to safeguard her from being abused by immoral men.

Haya is a special characteristic of a Mu’min (believing, practicing Muslim). Haya and Iman are interdependent; therefore either they both exist together or they both perish. The Prophet (saw) has said in one hadith, “When there is no haya left, then do as you please.”

There are many wonderful benefits of haya. First, Allah (SWT) loves haya. We know this by the following hadith: “Surely Allah (is One who) has haya and is the Protector. He loves haya and people who cover each other’s faults.” (Bukhari)

Secondly, haya itself is a greatness of Islam as our Prophet (saw) indicated: “Every way of life has a innate character. The character of Islam is haya.” Or “Every deen has an innate character. The character of Islam is modesty (haya).” (Abu Dawood)

Third, haya only brings good and nothing else. Our Prophet (saw) said: “Haya does not bring anything except good.” (Bukhari)

Fourth, Haya is a very clear indication of our Iman. As the Prophet (saw) had mentioned to the Ansar who was condemning his brother about being shy: “Leave him, for Haya is (a part) of Faith.” (Bukhari)

Last, Haya leads us to PARADISE. As the Prophet (saw) told us: “Haya comes from Iman; Iman leads to Paradise. Obscenity comes from antipathy; and antipathy leads to the fire.” (Bukhari)
As mentioned before, since the actual word Haya is derived from Hayat, which means life, it is only obvious that when someone has Haya in them, they will live a life of Islam. On the other hand if they do not have Haya they are living a life that is dead “Islamically”, but alive according to this dunya.

The Prophet (saw) said: “Haya and trustworthiness will be the first to go from this world; therefore keep asking Allah for them.” (Baihaqi)

Be not sad, surely Allah is with us

Allah has asked us not be sad. He says:
"So do not become weak (against your enemy), nor be sad.…"

[surah Al-Imran - Ayah 139].

"And grieve not over them (polytheists and pagans, etc.), and be not
distressed because of what they plot.."
[surah An-Nahl - Ayah 127].

"Be not sad (or afraid), surely Allâh is with us."

[surah At-Taubah - Ayah 40].

We are informed in the following verse about the believers that:
"…. there shall be no fear on them, nor shall they grieve."
[surah Al-Baqarah - Ayah 38].

Sadness enervates the spirit’s will to action, paralysing the body into inactivity. The secret of this is that sadness prevents one from action instead of compelling one towards it. The heart benefits nothing through grief. The most beloved thing to the Devil is to make the worshipper sad in order to prevent him from continuing on his path. Allah says:
" Secret counsels (conspiracies) are only from Shaitân (Satan), in order that he may cause grief to the believers."
[surah Al-Mujadilah – Ayah 10].

In the following hadith, the Prophet (Sallalahu Alayhi Wasalam) said:
'In a company of three, it is forbidden for two to hold secret counsel while excluding the third, as this will be a cause of sadness for him.'

Contrary to what some believe (those who have an extreme ascetic bent), the believer should not seek out sadness, because sadness is a harmful element that afflicts the soul. The Muslim must repel sadness, fighting it in any way that is permissible in our Religion. There is no real benefit in sadness, the Prophet Muhammad (Sallalahu Alayhi Wasalam) sought refuge from it in the following supplication:
'O’ Allah, I seek refuge in you from anxiety and grief.'

Grief is coupled with anxiety in this hadith. The difference between the two is that if a bad feeling that pervades the heart is related to what is going to happen in the future, then it is anxiety. And if the cause of this feeling concerns the past, then it is grief. Both of them weaken the heart, causing inactivity and a decrease in will power.

Grief may sometimes be both inevitable and necessary. When they enter Paradise, its dwellers will say:
"All the praises and thanks be to Allâh, Who has removed from us (all) grief...
[surah Fatir – Ayah 34].

This verse implies that they were afflicted with grief in this life, just as they were afflicted with other forms of hardship, both of which were out of their control. So whenever one is overcome by grief and there is no way to avoid it, one is rewarded, because grief is a form of hardship, and the believer is rewarded for going through hardship. Nonetheless, the believer must ward off grief with supplication and other practical means.

As for the saying of Allah:
"Nor (is there blame) on those who came to you to be provided with mounts, and when you said: "I can find no mounts for you," they turned back, while their eyes overflowing with tears of grief that they could not find anything to spend (for Jihâd)."
[surah At-Taubah – Ayah 92].

They were not praised for their grief in itself but for what that grief indicated and pointed to namely, strong faith. This occurred when they remained behind during one of the Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wasalam’s) expeditions, due to their inability to find the necessary resources needed to make the trip. Hence the hypocrites are exposed, because they did not feel grief when they remained behind.

Therefore the good kind of grief is that which is occasioned when one misses out on an opportunity to do a good deed, or when one performs a sin. When one feels sad because he was negligent in fulfilling the rights of Allah, he shows a characteristic of a person who is on the right path.

Surah Ghafir

39. "O my people! Truly, this life of the world is nothing but a (quick passing) enjoyment, and verily, the Hereafter that is the home that will remain forever."
