Aya ya Leo - Mapenzi ya Mali (The love of wealth)

Watu wamepambiwa kupenda matamanio ya wanawake, na wana, na mirundi ya dhahabu na fedha, na farasi asili, na mifugo, na mashamba. Hayo ni starehe ya maisha ya duniani; na kwa Mwenyezi Mungu ndio kwenye marejeo mema.

It has been made attractive for people to love the desired things; that is, women, children, hoarded heaps of gold and silver, branded horses, cattle and tillage.That is an enjoyment of the worldly life; but with Allah lies the beauty of the final resort. (Qur'an 3:14)

Jumaa Mubarak!

Aya ya Leo - Qur'an


Yeye ndiye aliye kuteremshia Kitabu hichi. Ndani yake zimo Aya muhkam, zenye maana wazi. Hizo ndizo msingi wa Kitabu hichi. Na ziko nyengine za mifano. Ama wale ambao nyoyoni mwao umo upotovu wanafuata zile za mifano kwa kutafuta fitna, na kutafuta maana yake; na wala hapana ajuaye maana yake ila Mwenyezi Mungu. Na wale wenye msingi madhubuti katika ilimu husema: Sisi tumeziamini, zote zimetoka kwa Mola wetu Mlezi. Lakini hawakumbuki hayo isipo kuwa wenye akili.

He is the One who has revealed to you the Book(the Qur'an). Out of it there are verses that are Muhkamat(of established meaning), which are the principal verses of the Book, and some others are Mutashabihat (whose definite meanings are unknown). Now those who have perversity in their hearts go after such part of it as is mutashabih, seeking (to create) discord, and searching for its interpretation (that meets their desires), while no one knows its interpretation except Allah; and those well-grounded in knowledge say:"We believe therein; all is from our Lord." Only the men of understanding observe the advice. (Qur'an 3:7)

Ijumaa Njema

kwao kwa wanao jifanyia kwa mujibu wa ada. Na Mwenyezi Mungu anazo khabari za yote mnayo yatenda.

And when they have fulfilled their term, then there is no blame upon you for what they do with themselves in an acceptable manner.And Allah is [fully] Acquainted with what you do.(Qur'an 2:234)

Aya ya Leo - Kumnyonyesha Mtoto (Breastfeeding a baby)

Na wazazi wanawake wawanyonyeshe watoto wao miaka miwili kaamili kwa anaye taka kutimiza kunyonyesha. Na juu ya baba yake chakula cha kina mama, na nguo zao kwa mujibu wa ada. Wala halazimishwi mtu ila kwa kadiri ya uwezo wake. Mama asitiwe taabuni kwa ajili ya mwanawe, wala baba kwa ajili ya mwanawe. Na juu ya mrithi mfano wa hivyo. Na kama wote wawili wakitaka kumwachisha ziwa kwa kuridhiana na kushauriana, basi si vibaya kwao. Na mkitaka kuwapatia watoto wenu mama wa kuwanyonyesha basi hapana ubaya kwenu mkitoa mlicho ahidi kwa mujibu wa ada. Na mcheni Mwenyezi Mungu, na jueni kwamba Mwenyezi Mungu anayaona yote mnayo yatenda.

Mothers may breastfeed their children two complete years for whoever wishes to complete the nursing [period]. Upon the father is the mothers' provision and their clothing according to what is acceptable. No person is charged with more than his capacity. No mother should be harmed through her child, and no father through his child. And upon the [father's] heir is [a duty] like that [of the father]. And if they both desire weaning through mutual consent from both of them and consultation, there is no blame upon either of them. And if you wish to have your children nursed by a substitute, there is no blame upon you as long as you give payment according to what is acceptable. And fear Allah and know that Allah is Seeing of what you do.(Qur'an 2:233)
Jumaa Mubarak!

Aya ya Leo - Imani (Belief)


Mtume ameamini yaliyo teremshwa kwake kutoka kwa Mola Mlezi wake, na Waumini vile vile. Wote wamemuamini Mwenyezi Mungu, na Malaika wake, na Vitabu vyake na Mitume wake. Hatutafautishi baina ya yeyote katika Mitume wake.

Na (Waumini) husema: Tumesikia na tumet'ii. Tunakutaka maghfira Mola Mlezi wetu! Na marejeo ni kwako.

The Messenger has believed in what was revealed to him from his Lord, and [so have] the believers. All of them have believed in Allah and His angels and His books and His messengers, [saying], "We make no distinction between any of His messengers." 

And they say, "We hear and we obey. [We seek] our forgiveness, our Lord, and to You is the [final] destination." (Qur'an 2:285)
Ijumaa Njema!

Aya ya Leo - Riba(Interest)

Wale wanaokula riba hawatasimama [Siku ya Kiyama] ila kama anavyo simama anayepigwa na Shetani mpaka kuchanganyikiwa. Hayo ni kwa kuwa wamesema: Biashara ni kama riba. Lakini Mwenyezi Mungu ameihalalisha biashara na ameiharimisha riba.
Basi aliye fikiwa na mawaidha kutoka kwa Mola wake Mlezi, kisha akajizuia, basi yake ni yaliyo kwisha pita, na mambo yake yako kwa Mwenyezi Mungu. Na wenye kurudia basi hao ndio watu wa Motoni, humo watadumu.

Those who consume interest cannot stand [on the Day of Resurrection] except as one stands who is being beaten by Satan into insanity. That is because they say, "Trade is [just] like interest." But Allah has permitted trade and has forbidden interest. 
So whoever has received an admonition from his Lord and desists may have what is past, and his affair rests with Allah . But whoever returns to [dealing in interest or usury] - those are the companions of the Fire; they will abide eternally therein. (Qur'an 2:275)

Aya ya Leo - Wealth (Mali)

Mfano wa wanao tumia mali zao katika Njia ya Mwenyezi Mungu ni kama mfano wa punje moja iliyo chipuza mashuke saba. Katika kila shuke zimo punje mia.
Na Mwenyezi Mungu humzidishia amtakaye, na Mwenyezi Mungu ni Mwenye wasaa na Mwenye kujua.

The example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is like a seed [of grain] which grows seven spikes; in each spike is a hundred grains.
And Allah multiplies [His reward] for whom He wills. And Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing.
(Qur'an 2:261)

Ni nani atakaye mkopesha Mwenyezi Mungu mkopo mwema ili amzidishie mzidisho mwingi, na Mwenyezi Mungu hukunja na hukunjua. Na Kwake Yeye mtarejea.

Who is it that would loan Allah a goodly loan so He may multiply it for him many times over? And it is Allah who withholds and grants abundance, and to Him you will be returned.(Qur'an 2:245)

Aya za Leo - Udanganyifu (Deception)



Na katika watu, wako wasemao: Tuna mwamini Mwenyezi Mungu na Siku ya Mwisho, wala wao si wenye kuamini.Wanatafuta kumdanganya Mwenyezi Mungu na wale walio amini, lakini hawadanganyi ila nafsi zao; nao hawatambui.Nyoyoni mwao mna maradhi, na Mwenyezi Mungu amewazidishia maradhi.  Basi watakuwa na adhabu chungu kwa sababu ya kusema kwao uwongo.

Na wanapo ambiwa: Msifanye uharibifu ulimwenguni. Husema: Bali sisi ni watengenezaji.
Hakika wao ndio waharibifu, lakini hawatambui.

And of the people are some who say, "We believe in Allah and the Last Day," but they are not believers.They [think to] deceive Allah and those who believe, but they deceive not except themselves and perceive [it] not. In their hearts is a disease, so Allah has increased their disease; and for them is a painful punishment because they [habitually] used to lie.

And when it is said to them, "Do not cause corruption on the earth," they say, "We are but reformers."
Unquestionably, it is they who are the corrupters, but they perceive [it] not. (Qur'an 2:8-2:12)

1st Makkah Iftaar Ramadhan 1438 ~ Adhaan by Sheikh Fallaatah

Hadithi ya Leo - Qur'an (Al-Baqara na Al-Imran)




Abu Umama alisema alimsikia Mtume wa Allah (S.A.W) akisema:

Soma Qur'ani, kwani siku ya kiyama itakuja kama mwombezi kwa wale wanaoisoma. Some zile mbili zenye mwanga Al-Baqara na Surah Al Imran, kwani siku ya kiyama zitakuja kama mawingu mawili au vivuli viwili au makundi mawili ya ndege, kuwaombea wale waliokuwa wanazisoma. Soma Surah Al-Baqara, kwani kuikimbilia ni baraka na kuikatia tamaa ni chanzo cha huzuni, na waganga hawawezi kukabiliana nayo.

Abu Umama said he heard Allah's Messenger (S.A.W) say:

Recite the Qur'an, for on the Day of Resurrection it will come as an intercessor for those who recite It. Recite the two bright ones, Al-Baqara and Surah Al 'Imran, for on the Day of Resurrection they will come as two clouds or two shades, or two flocks of birds in ranks, pleading for those who recite them. Recite Surah al-Baqara, for to take recourse to it is a blessing and to give it up is a cause of grief, and the magicians cannot confront it. (Mu'awiya said: It has been conveyed to me that here Batala means magicians.)
(~Muslim Book 6, Hadith 302)

Vitu vitano vitakavyo kufanikishia Funga Yako (Ramadhan Tips)

1. Usile chakula kingi. (Gawa utombo sehemu tatu. 1/3 Maji, 1/3 Chakula, 1/3 ya kuhema)
2. Toa Sadaka kila siku kidogo kidogo. Ata ile kufuturisha kila siku pia ni sadaka.
3. Sali sala tano kila siku. Sala 5 zimelazimishwa na zina uzitu kuliko Salaa ya taraweeh ambayo ni sunna.
4. Soma Qur'an kwa utaratibu ili uweze kuilewa.
5.Kuwa na uamko wa Allah (Mcha Mungu). Hii itakusaidia usitende madhambi, kwa kuichunga nafsi yako na maovu.

Ramadhan Kareem Everybody! You got this.

Aya ya Leo Mzigo(Burden)


Na mbebaji mzigo hata beba mzigo wa mwingine. Na aliye zidiwa na mzigo wake aki muomba mwingine amsaidie, hauto punguzwa, ata kama ni ndugu yake wa karibu. Unaweza kuwaonya wale wanao mcha Mola wao Mlezi kwa ghaibu na wanashika Sala. Na anaye jitakasa, basi anajitakasa kwa ajili ya nafsi yake. Na marejeo ni kwa Mwenyezi Mungu. 

And no bearer of burdens will bear the burden of another. And if a heavily laden soul calls [another] to [carry some of] its load, nothing of it will be carried, even if he should be a close relative. You can only warn those who fear their Lord unseen and have established prayer. And whoever purifies himself only purifies himself for [the benefit of] his soul. And to Allah is the [final] destination. (Qur'an 35:18)


Jumaa Mubarak!
