For those that live in the eastern part of USA, today was a not so lucky day for us as the eastern team in the NBA (Basketball) all-stars lost to the western team of USA. But oh well I can’t be that disappointed with all the stuff Allah (swt) has given me alhumdoillah =).
Hadith of the Week
Prophetic (PBUH) Commentary on the Qur’an – 4th Rabi al-Awwal 1432 (7th
Narrated Al-Musaiyab (Radi-Allahu ‘anhu):
When Abu Talib’s death approached, the Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wa
Sallam) went to him while Abu Jahl and ‘Abdullah bin Abi Umaiya were
present with him. The Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, “O
uncle, say: None has the right to be worshipped except Allah, so that I may
argue for your case with it before Allah.” On that, Abu Jahl and ‘Abdullah
bin Abu Umaiya said, “O Abu Talib! Do you want to renounce ‘Abdul
Muttalib’s religion?” Then the Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam) said,
“I will keep on asking (Allah for) forgiveness for you unless I am
forbidden to do so.” Then there was revealed:–
‘It is not fitting for the Prophet and those who believe that they should
invoke (Allah) for forgiveness for pagans even though they be of kin, after
it has become clear to them that they are companions of the Fire.’ (9.113)
