محاسن الإسلام The Beauty of Islam

محاسن الإسلام the beauty of Islam
Islam,brought by the messenger of Allah Mohammad -peace and blessings of Allah be upon him-is the best and most complete religion .it has contained the beauties , perfection, goodness,mercy,justice and wisdom.the things that no other religion contained. and from this beauties and qualities: solidarity:

solidarity in Islam is a comprehensive cooperation on the call to do good and remove evil; and protect the weak, and the livelihoods of the poor and needy ( providing them with their needs)
and the sense of all that befalls AL jama3a( the group).

  Allah the almighty said: "and cooperate in righteousness and piety; but do not cooperate in sin and aggression".sura AL-maaida:2
the types of social solidarity:

zakat is one of the principle means of achieving social justice in Islam.the latter has made it one of the pillars of religion and a necessity of the faith, and to its importance , it was paired with salat in dozens of places both in Quran and sunnah, Allah the almighty said:" and establish prayer and give zakat and bow with those who bow (in worship and obedience)".al baqara 43. and he said:"( [And they are] those who, if We give them authority in the land, establish prayer and give zakah) .hajj :41
And zakat i is also a mean of social security , brought by Islam, as the latter refuses to have in its society people who can’t find or afford sufficient Sustenance, a dress that may cover him, or a house to shelter him.
In addition to zakat, Islam calls to charity and (Righteousness) piety,and Endears voluntarily spending and pending the satisfaction of Allah and its repayment in life and in the hereafter,and avoiding Allah anger and its punishment.Allah the almighty said:( Who is it that would loan Allah a goodly loan so He will multiply it for him and he will have a noble reward?) Al hadid .11and the messenger of Allah-peace and blessings of Allah be upon him- said”: every day when sun rises,there are two angels:one says” o Allah give Almsgivers more, and an other angel says:o Allah damage the one who doesn’t give alms” narrated by Muslim.
So Islam calls the generous gently , and pushes the mean to give more as Allah the almighty accepts charity with his right hand, and raises it to its owner just the way anyone of us raises his baby horse until the fruit becomes as big as the mountain of Ohud.
Islam made it obligatory on the head of the family(father) types of expenditures,on his wife, his children,on his parents if they are unable or under his care.and he gets ,despite that, a charity and ajr(gain in paradise) if he bares that in his mind , the messenger of Allah- peace and blessings of Allah said-“ if a Muslim spends on his family and he had a charity Seeking reward thereby’ ihtisab’(for the sake of Allah) it will be as the reward of a charity to him”. Narrated by al bukhari.
the rights of Muslims
zakat is not the only right in money, but it is the periodic right by which islam reached the highest degrees of Binding, besides; there are other rights that circumstances imposes , and needs present, and these rights are often left to the Muslim’s coscience and to his pure feelings that were raised in him by Islam, as it has no specific amount or time. and if the amount of zakat was not sufficient for the needy ; then rich Muslims have to provide enough to the poor.and if they did not do that willingly, they will be obliged by sultan(authority) in the name of char3(Islamic law) which commanded solidarity among Muslims, And considered them like a structure, or as one body, as he is not a believer who sleeps full , while his neighbor is hungry by his side.
the love of work
Evidence for the privilege and virtue of working
Work is one kind of worship in its general meaning, as man was created to occupy with good and to the good in general, Allah the Almighty said: « It is He who made the earth tame for you - so walk among its slopes and eat of His provision » al mulk(15) and he said : «He has produced you from the earth and settled you in it » hud(61)
the messenger of Allah –peace be upon him –pushed his companions to work and urged them on it, he said : ‘ i prefer that anyone of you packs firewood and carries it on his back to sell it, rather than begging someone, who may accept or refuse’.narrated by Muslim. and a Muslim should never give up work under the pretext of worshiping Allah, as his work to earn his living and the one of his family, is also a kind of worship.

it is narrated that Omar- may Allah be pleased with him- saw some people after salat(prayer) sitting in Almasjed because of tawakkul( trusting and depending on Allah) so he urged them to go saying his famous word : ‘no one of you should stay without earning his living and just says :o Allah grant me !! and he knew in advance that sky does not rain gold nor silver’.
Conditions of the prophets and their quest to work

All prophets used to work and eat by earning their living, with the testimony of the prophet mohamad-peace and blessings of allah be upon him-as he said:” all the prophets allah sent were shepherds”?the sahaba said:and you rasoul allah? He said: I used to work as a shepherd on carats to people in makkah’ narrated by al bukhari.
And he- peace be upon him-said: ‘to eat from what you earn with your own hands is the best thing,and prophet daood(david) used to earn his living’ narrated by al bukhari.
And Thus did the imams of Islam, and the righteous, that wau they were named:the bazzar; the locker, glass maker,al kharraz, Al-Qattan, al jassas; etc.
The five essentials
the five essentials are : Keeping religion, and keeping the self, and keeping the mind, and keeping birth control and honor, and keeping money.and these five are the highest levels of the chari3a,in fact it is the main goal the descent of Islamic law, and it is important to the interest of religion and life, as life would imbalance if these essentials were lost.
