On this week’s Islamic Faith in Focus podcast with Imam Hassan address the basic rights and responsibilities of Muslims and Islam.
He opens this episode by asking – what does a commitment to Islam mean? Is it simply making your prayers? Is it sticking to the dietary restrictions that are set forth in the Quran and Hadith? Or is there more to being a Muslim and submitting to Allah?
The Imam explains that in the time of the Prophet (p.b.u.h.) he was offered riches and power if he would simply stop preaching about Islam. The Prophet said that no matter what he was offered he would keep spreading the word so that everyone would know what is right.
Imam Hassan goes on to draw parallels between the Prophet’s companions and today’s leaders. The companions would go out into the town, with no cameras, no TMZ, no coverage, their sole purpose of finding someone to help and give aid to. Their only ulterior motive was to please Allah.
The Imam shares other parallels between the Prophet’s companions and how they would act with each other, and those around them. While listening to these hadiths, one can only ask themselves if they are living with the intention of pleasing Allah.
