Pearl of Wisdom

'In the battle of Dhat al-Riqa', the Prophet (SAWA) descended under a tree on the side of a valley when a flood came and separated him from his companions. A man from among the polytheists saw him whilst the Muslims were standing on the side of the valley waiting for the flood to subside. One of the polytheists said to his people, 'I will kill Muhammad!' So he came and drew his sword against the Prophet (SAWA), saying, 'Who will save you now from me O Muhammad?!' to which he replied, my Lord and your Lord', upon which [the angel] Gabriel (AS) threw him down from his horse and he fell onto his back. The Prophet (SAWA) then stood up, took the sword and sat on his chest, saying, 'Who will save you now from me, O Ghawrith?' to which he replied, 'Your magnanimity and generosity, O Muhammad' at which he left him. The man stood up, saying, 'By Allah, you are indeed better and nobler than me.'

Subject: means of entertainment according to Islam
Question: What can be the means of entertainment according to Islam?
Answer: Entertainment in Islam is recommended but it has to be within reasonable limits.

1. It should not be games of gambling. Even if there is no gambling involved, the games devised originally for gambling purposes cannot be played. For e.g. Chess, playing cards etc.

2. Entertainment should not consume too much of ones time because then a human beings most important asset "time" will be squandered in useless pursuits.

3. Entertainment should not include any haraam acts like songs, music, etc.

4. Entertainment should not lure a person away from performing his duties whether it is his "wajib (obligatory) acts," "Ibaadat" or his work, which he has to do for his livelihood. Even his studies should not be affected.

5. It is very important to entertain the body and the mind with the intention to be healthy, strong and active and be a successful person according to the orders of Allah and Ahlul-bayt (a.s.).

Question:
This book is a slick paper booklet of pdnragaopa. I did not find it to be any kind of reasonable guide to the Islamic religions. It explained nothing to me about a various Islamic sects such as Sunnie or Shi'ite.The first chapter purporting to provide evidence of the truths of Islam was illogical and superficial. Of course, the paragraph about the status of women in Islam is utterly ridiculous from what I have seen and read in various news media. Don't waste your money on this book as you will learn little or nothing about Islam from it.
