Ummah


The Prophet of this last and final prophetic era is Prophet Muhammad May Allah send peace and blessings upon him and his followers (Muslims) are the final set of believers and are titled the Ummah of Prophet Muhammad May Allah send peace and blessings upon him, the Last and Final Messenger. On the Day of Judgement everyone will be worried for themselves except our beloved Prophet May Allah send peace and blessings upon him who will be concerned about his Ummah. Every Prophet has used their one Guaranteed Dua (supplication) in their lifetime except Prophet Muhammad May Allah send peace and blessings upon him. Prophet Muhammad May Allah send peace and blessings upon him bearing all hardship has reserved his Guaranteed Dua so that he can use it in the Intercession of his Ummah on the Day of Judgement. Prophet Isa ibn Maryam (Jesus son of Mary, peace be upon them) used his Guaranteed Dua by asking Allah to include him in the Ummah of the Last Prophet May Allah send peace and blessings upon him. Allah accepted his dua and saved him from being crucified and raised him to the second heaven. He will descend to Earth with the aid of Angels as an Ummati near the Day of Qiyaamah and kill Dajjal (The Anti-Christ). May Allah count us all within the Ummah Prophet Muhammad May Allah send peace and blessings upon him on the Day of Judgement - Ameen.

In Islam, Muslims are considered as a single family of brothers and sisters (Ummah) who share each others grief and help one another to do good.

Umrah


Umrah is a pilgrimage. It is smaller than Hajj and involves Tawaaf (Fardh) and Saee (Waajib) in a state of Ihraam (Fardh) and shaving the head (Waajib) or trimming of the hair of the head (equally) on all sides (Waajib).

It is Sunnat-e Muakkadah to perform Umrah once in a lifetime. Umrah could be performed practically throughout the year. It is Makroohe Tahreemee to perform Umrah on the 9, 10, 11 and l2th of Zil Hijjah (the days of Hajj).

Ihraam is a state in which the person performing Umrah or Hajj dons particular clothes/non-stitched sheets and abstains from certain actions and makes the intention (Niyyah) and prayer (Talbiyyah) for Umrah or Hajj.

Unity


As Muslims we should try and live like true Muslims by not offending anyone however it may be, and try to forgive all the wrong which is done to us, we need to be following Prophet Muhammad and his guiding stars, the Sahabas in every foot step

Hadith: 'The creation is Allah's household and the most beloved of the creation of Allah is the one who is good to his household'.
