Purity

Purity

All praise is for Allah. We praise him, we seek his aid, and we ask for his forgiveness. I testify that none has the right to be worshipped except Allah, alone, who has no partner, and who is the lord of the worlds. Allah loves those who turn unto him in repentance and loves those who purify themselves and blessings and peace family and Allah’s righteous servants.

Oh friends I advise you to fear from Allah who said:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَقُولُوا قَوْلاً سَدِيداً

“Oh you who believe! Keep your duty to Allah and fear him and speak always the truth.” (33:70)

Oh believers. Every Muslim keeps his purity because it’s an important part of his worship, and this gives a proof for his faith existence.

قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم :  الطُّهُورُ شَطْرُ الإِيمَانِ

“Purity is half of faith”

So prayers without purification is not correct

قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم :  لاَ تُقْبَلُ صَلاَةٌ بِغَيْرِ طُهُورٍ

“No Salat (prayer) is accepted without ablution.”

Adding for that purification means cleanliness and means removing the NAJAS , for that every Muslim most clean his body and the environment near to him. Everyday Muslim must take ablution 5 times daily and must wear his best and clean clothes

 لقوله تعالى :  يَا بَنِي آدَمَ خُذُوا زِينَتَكُمْ عِندَ آُلِّ مَسْجِدٍ

“Oh children of Adam! Take your adornment (by wearing your clean clothes) while praying.” (7:30)

It means that every Muslim used to keep his mosque and his house in cleanliness case. In addition, Islam ordered His followers to clean their hearts from bad characters like hating the others jealousy withholding.

قال رسول الله  اللَّهُمَّ نَقِّ نِي مِنَ الْخَطَايَا كَمَا ينَُقَّى الثَّوْبُ الأَبْيَضُ مِنَ الدَّنَسِ، اللَّهُمَّ اغْسِلْ خَطَايَايَ بِالْمَاءِ وَالثَّلْجِ وَالْبَرَدِ

Our messenger used to pray Allah to clean him from the sins as in the case of washing the white cloth from dirt. And he prayed Allah to clean his sins with water and snow.

This means that please Allah clean me from the sins which blacken the heart as cleaning the white cloth from dirt.

This purity is a path to paradise. There is a story that we can summarize; one of the followers didn’t offer more prayers or more fasting but in the same case he was pure from cheating or jealousy, and for these high characters our prophet promised this follower with paradise. These characters give a clear proof that Islam in his method is taking attention about purity.

قال تعالى :  فِيهِ رِجَالٌ يُحِبُّونَ أَن يَتَطَهَّرُوا 

“In it are men who love to clean and purify themselves and Allah love those who make themselves clean and pure.” (9:108)

Our Lord praised Mary, Allah may bless her, because she kept her pureness, she avoided the bad manners and for that she deserved to be above the women of the world.

قال تعالى : وَإِذْ قَالَتِ المَلائِكَة يَا مَرْيَمُ إِنَّ اللَّه اصْطَفَاكِ وَطَهَّرَكِ وَاصْطَفَاكِ عَلَى نِسَاءِ العَالَمِينَ 

“Remember, when the angles said Oh Mary! Verily Allah has chosen you, purified you from “polytheism and disbelief” and chose you above the women of the world.” (93:42)

So every Muslim looking for Allah’s love, looking for paradise, he must keep the purity of his characters.

 قال تعالى  : وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ سَنُدْخِلُهُمْ جَنَّاتٍ تَجْرِي مِن تَحْتِهَا الأَنْهَارُ خَالِدِينَ فِيهَا أَبَداً لَّهُمْ
فِيهَا أَزْوَاجٌ مُّطَهَّرَةٌ وَنُدْخِلُهُمْ ظِلاًّ ظَلِيلاً

“But those who believe (in the oneness in Allah) and do deeds of righteousness we shall admit them to gardens under which rivers flow (paradise)”(4:57)

We pray Allah to make us pure slaves and we ask him to help us to obey him and to obey whom we ordered to obey.
