‘Umar ibn al-Khattab said:
As we sat one day with the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace), a man in pure white clothing and jet black hair came to us, without a trace of travelling upon him, though none of us knew him.
He sat down before the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) bracing his knees against his, resting his hands on his legs, and said: “Muhammad, tell me about Islam.” The Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) said: “Islam is to testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and to perform the prayer, give zakat, fast in Ramadan, and perform the pilgrimage to the House if you can find a way.”
He said: “You have spoken the truth,” and we were surprised that he should ask and then confirm the answer. Then he said: “Tell me about true faith (iman),” and the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) answered: “It is to believe in Allah, His angels, His inspired Books, His messengers, the Last Day, and in destiny, its good and evil.”
“You have spoken the truth,” he said, “Now tell me about the perfection of faith (ihsan),” and the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) answered: “It is to worship Allah as if you see Him, and if you see Him not, He nevertheless sees you.”
He said: “Now tell me about the Hour.” The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) answered: “The one who is asked about it does knows no more than the questioner.”
He said: “Then tell me about its signs.” The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace answered: “That a slave girl shall give birth to her mistress, and that you see barefoot, naked, destitute shepherds vying to build tall buildings.”
Then the visitor left. I waited a long while, and the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said to me, “Do you know, ‘Umar, who was the questioner?” and I replied, “Allah and His messenger know best.” He said,
“It was Gabriel, who came to you to teach you your religion” (Sahih Muslim, 1.37: hadith 8).
To Enter in Islam,Iman and Ihsan completely:
2:208 O you who have believed, enter into Islam completely [and perfectly] and do not follow the footsteps of Satan. Indeed, he is to you a clear enemy.
To follow the spiritual aid (the way of Righteous Imams) in the way of Truth:
1:7: The path of those upon whom You have bestowed favor, not of those who have evoked [Your] anger or of those who are astray.
4:59 O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you.
17:80 Say: “O my Lord! Let my entry be by the Gate of Truth and Honour, and likewise my exit by the Gate of Truth and Honour; and grant me from Thy Presence an authority to aid (me).”
To Abandon scholars and leaders who are without Imams and are following their ego:
Quran 25:43 Have you seen the one whose god is his own ego? Will you be his advocate?
Quran 45:23 Have you noted the one whose god is his ego? Consequently, God sends him astray, despite his knowledge, seals his hearing and his mind, and places a veil on his eyes. Who then can guide him, after such a decision by God? Would you not take heed?
And to follow the Truthful Imams:
يَوْمَ نَدْعُواْ كُلَّ أُنَاسٍ بِإِمَـمِهِمْ
17:71 And remember) the Day when We shall call together all human beings with their (respective) Imam), which is that it refers to the Book (or record) of their deeds. This was also the view of Abu Al-`Aliyah, Al-Hasan and Ad-Dahhak. This view is the most correct, because Allah says:
وَكُلَّ شىْءٍ أَحْصَيْنَـهُ فِى إِمَامٍ مُّبِينٍ
and all things We have recorded with numbers (as a record) in a Clear Book Fi Imamin Mubin 36:12
(Tafsir Ibn Kathir-A Salafi Tafsir)
“Fear God and accompany Trustworthy people” [9:119]
So only when you fear Allah and accompany Trustworthy, you are guided, Allah says:
Quran 2:2 This is the Book; in it is guidance sure, without doubt, to those who fear Allah;
Prophet (S.A.W) said: “Whosoever dies without recognizing the Imam of his time dies the death of the ignorance (Jahiliyyah).”
Ahmad b. Hanbal, al-Musnad, p. 96.
They are the inheritors of Pure Tawheed:
Quran 3:18 There is no god but He: That is the witness of Allah, His angels, and those endued with knowledge, standing firm on justice. There is no god but He, the Exalted in Power, the Wise
To be sincere to the leaders of the Muslims (righteous Imams-Ulool ilm 3:18 and righteous in authority-4:59) and their folk:
On the authority of Tamim Al-Dari that the prophet said:
“Religion is sincerity”. We said: “To whom?” He said: “To Allah and His Book, and His messenger, and to the leaders of the Muslims and their common folk”.
narrated by Muslim
And to Obey,Love and Respect Awliya Allah:
On the authority of Abu Hurairah, who said: the messenger of Allah said:
Allah the Almighty has said: “Who soever shows enmity to a friend of Mine, I shall be at war with him. My servant does not draw near to Me with anything more loved by Me than the religious duties I have imposed upon him, and My servant continues to draw near to Me with supererogatory works so that I shall love him. When I love him I am his hearing with which he hears, his seeing with which he sees, his hand with which he strikes, and his foot with which he walks. Were he to ask [something] of Me, I would surely give it to him and were he to ask Me for refuge, I would surely grant him it.”
related by Bukhari.
Anything More is not Religion of Allah:
Prophet (s.a.w) said: Whoever imitates a people is one of them.” (Ahmad & Abu Dawood)
“You will imitate the nations before you very closely to the extent that if they went into a lizard’s hole, you would enter it as well” his companions, may Allaah be pleased with them, inquired: “(Do you mean) the Jews and Christians, O Messenger of Allaah?” Hesallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam replied: “Who else?” (Bukhaari & Muslim).
The Prophet (S.A.W) said: “The Day of Judgment will not come until my Nation closely imitates the nations before them.” It was asked: “Like the Persians and Romans, Messenger of Allaah?” He sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam replied:”Who are the nations (I could mean) except those?” (Bukhaari).
So that you may be guided and not to be drowned!
