SHEIHU RASHID HUSSAIN SALWAT

(QUTUB AZ-ZAMAAN)

YEAR OF PROPHET YAQUB, WITH EFFECT FROM TUESDAY,December, 6, 2011

 

INTRODUCTION:

We give thanks to God and pray for peace and blessings to be upon the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and his household. God taught man by the Pen and taught him what he knew not (Q 96:1-5). The mystery of knowledge was conferred on man and he was thus charged with the mystic meaning of everything including particular qualities of Feelings and Love.

Among the mystic meanings of knowledge is “Ayaam ul-Lah”, or “Days of Allah”. It also means (the unfolding of the scriptures). The Islamic concept of unfolding the scriptures is as old as time itself. In Quran 45: 14 we are told; “Tell those who believe, to forgive those who do not believe in the Days of Allah: it is His responsibility to reward each People according to what they have earned.” Also in Quran 14:5 it says; “We sent Musah (AS) with Our Signs commanding him to, “bring out his people from the depth of ignorance into the light of knowledge, and also to teach them to remember the “Days of Allah.” Verily in the concept of unfolding the scriptures, there are Signs for those who are steadfast and grateful”.

The Prophet Muhammad (SAW), explained “Ayaam ul-Lah”, or “Days of Allah” which was narrated by Muslim. He said, on the authority of Ubaiyi the Prophet (SAW) explained that, “Allah’s Days are some days of the year that are of fortunes and some others that are of misfortunes”. (Muslim, Book of Fadaail, Hadith No. 4386).  In most cases, solutions are prescribed to curb and prevent the misfortunes not to occur.


WHAT THE SCRIPTURES SAY; 2012

1.  GLOBAL ECONOMIC CRISIS

Most countries will face serious economic difficulties. The socio-economic policies of the world need to be reviewed and should be aimed at empowering the masses by promoting the well-being of the youth. Much effort should therefore be made to get the unemployed youth employed in order to curb future global economic crises.

2. FOOD INSECURITY / HUNGER

There shall be food insecurity resulting into hunger globally.  Already, some countries such as Somalia, Kenya, Bangladesh, North Korea etc. are victims to the severe hunger situation. The hunger situation in North Korea for instance is so severe that, people are starving to the extent that, they eat grass just to survive.

3. POLITICAL AGITATION AND ELECTORAL DISPUTES

There shall be serious political agitations resulting in electoral disputes in some countries around the world. Mostly the youth of these countries will call for new leadership in their various countries. All political and election issues should be aimed at promoting peace in the world. Elections must therefore be conducted freely and handled with absolute fairness in order to avoid political turmoil and disputes.

4. UPRISINGS/ PUBLIC UNREST

The current uprisings and public unrest in some countries will continue. Pressure will be put to bear on governments for political change due to economic difficulties.

5. NEW BIRTHS, INFANT MORTALITY AND MATERNAL DEATHS

There shall be so many new births thus, many children would be born into the world, but at the same time, the world will experience high rate of infant mortality and rampant maternal death through child birth.

2011 EVENTS

Just like a dream, all the predictions for 2011 events came to reality. The Almighty Allah has shown us the way, but the question is, do we believe or pay attention? The answer is simply NO. This year’s events should clearly  warn those of us who believe to pay absolute attention to these wonderful revelations. The Almighty Allah loves us and has shown us the way; it is left for mankind to decide. It is time for mankind to listen and follow the natural laws of nature. The earth will be the most comfortable abode for mankind if mankind simply obey and do the simple scarifies.

 OUTBREAK OF EPIDEMICS

This year’s event has warned us against the outbreak of epidemics. Solutions to circumvent the occurrence of these slowly killing epidemics were given to mankind by the Almighty. But man pay deaf ear to these solutions.

  • Early this year, almost 4,000 people have died in Haiti from cholera and almost 200,000 have been sickened. Ghana, Venezuela and several other countries also have their fair share this deadly disease. The disease is one of the leading causes of death in the world, particularly in developing countries.

There are an estimated 3 million to 5 million cholera cases and 100,000 to 120,000 deaths every year worldwide, the health agency says.

  • Public health officials say nearly 500 people have died of cholera in Cameroon this year, and 13,000 cases have been reported in the country this year.

More than 50 of this month’s deaths were in the Far North region, the hardest-hit area so far. Residents in the Logone and Chari divisions of the region told CNN that the majority of people infected with the disease are children under the age of five and women.

  • Early this year, United Nations officials have called for an immediate ceasefire in the            Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) to allow vaccinations to reach millions of children who are threatened by a sudden epidemic of polio.

The aggressive return of the contagious paralyzing virus comes just five years after it was declared eradicated in most of the world. It marks a major setback in the race to make polio only the third disease, after smallpox and the cattle virus render pest, to be eradicated.

In the wake of an outbreak earlier this year of so-called wild poliovirus, the first round of an unprecedented vaccination campaign aimed at 72 million children under five was launched in 15 African countries in November.

  • In June this year, the outbreak E. coli in northern Germany has left 22 people dead and more than 2,000 people ill.
  • Also in June, China lead poisoning outbreak hits more than 600 people.
  • Acid oceans turn ‘Finding Nemo fish deaf. Clownfish, the spectacular tropical species feted in the movie Finding Nemo, appear to lose their hearing in water slightly more acidic than normal. At levels of acidity that may be common by the end of the century, the fish did not respond to the sounds of predators.

The oceans are becoming more acidic because they absorb much of the CO2 that humanity puts into the atmosphere.

Scientists write in the journal Biology Letters that failing to move away from danger would hurt the fish’s survival.

  • Alcohol poisoning, not avian flu, killed Romanian birds. Birds that were thought to have died from avian flu in Romania instead apparently drank (Alcohol poisoning) themselves to death. The head of the local sanitary and veterinary authority, Dvsva, told news agency Agerpres that analysis of the starlings’ gizzards showed they had died from alcohol poisoning.
  • In November this year, Worries about high tides overwhelming parts of Thailand in recent days have morphed into fears about water- and insect-borne diseases in the flood-ravaged country.

We praise Allah, the Merciful, the Beneficent. May Allah’s perpetual peace and blessings be upon the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and his beloved household. Fellow Muslim brothers and sisters, Eid ul-Adha is undoubtedly a remarkable mile-stone in Islam. It is in commemoration of the faith and courage by Prophet Ibrahim (AS). He is known to other religions as Abraham. Majority of the people of the world regard Prophet Ibrahim (AS) as the Patriarch, Father of the Faithful and the Pillar of the three major world religions, i.e. Islam, Christianity and Judaism. Eid ul-Adha which is in remembrance of the unshaken faith of Prophet Ibrahim (AS) in his Lord should not only be considered as an annual celebration, but also be considered to serve as a common unifier uniting the world and to guiding mankind in their daily lives to absolute success in this world and the hereafter.

There is a Universal Law, brothers and sisters that bonds every human being and leads him or her to a prosperous and happy Life in this world and the best of rewards in the hereafter. Allah says in the Quran 16:97. “Whoever does righteousness, man or woman, and has Faith, We will surely give him or her happy and prosperous Life, and reward them in the hereafter according to the best of their deeds.” Righteousness, obedience and being gratitude to Allah was indeed the philosophy which Prophet Ibrahim (AS) believed in. In the same chapter Allah said; “Ibrahim was indeed a model. Devoutly obedient to Allah, true in faith, and he joined no gods with Allah. He showed his gratitude for the favours of Allah, Who chose him, and guided him to a Straight Path. And We gave him Good life in this world, and he will be, in the Hereafter, in the ranks of the Righteous.” So therefore, We have revealed to you the message. “Follow the ways of Ibrahim the True Faith. He joined no gods with Allah.”

Sheihu Hussain Rashid Salwat (QUTUB AZ-ZAMAAN)

Assalamu Alaikum, dear brothers and sisters in Islam, we thank Allah for this wonderful occasion and pray Peace and Blessing of Allah to be upon the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and his household. I extend warm greetings to you all on the occasion of this year’s Eid ul-Fitr celebration. May Allah reward you abundantly for your sacrifices and endurance during the month of Ramadan. I take this opportunity to assure you that your Lord Allah the Almighty will reward you all the good things you did during the Holy Month of Ramadan. I therefore encourage you to continue to exhibit these good deeds throughout the year to the next Ramadan, Insha Allah.

 

My message on the occasion of this year’s Eid ul-Fitr celebration is on “Education and Development”. No society can develop if it fails to place education on top of its agenda. The developed societies have made it not through any other means but Education. Stressing on the importance of education, the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said “Seeking knowledge is incumbent on all Muslims”. This means that the acquisition of knowledge for the development of mankind is recommended to all Muslims,  irrespective of their sex. Knowledge such as Islamic Studies, Mathematics, Statistics, Physics, Politics, Chemistry, Medicine, Administrations, Agriculture, Nursing, Pharmacy, Engineering, Biology, Psychology, Philosophy, Astronomy, Astrology, Geology, Metrology, Criminology, and Sociology, among others. The Quran contains all these disciplines and more especially in the fields of science and technology. Allah says Quran 31:11. These are the Creation of Allah; now show us the creation of others other than Him, what have they created? But the Transgressors are in manifest error.

On December 19, 2011, during the occasion of “WHAT THE SCRIPTURES SAY; 2011”, I indicated that our planet is getting more and more unbalance and causing most of the disasters we are experiencing these days. This information was through one of the visions I had about events on our planets. After the occasion many people including academics asked me to explain the vision that our planet is getting more and more unbalance and that there is too much weight on one side. Secondly, I should also explain what I meant by the statement that the situation could be rectified by constructing huge structures such as pyramids below the equator.

The statement that disasters like Earthquakes, Land-slides, Storms and Floods occur frequently are as a result of “something man is doing wrongly on our planet”, this statement is true. Environmentalists have been worrying over this for some time just wanting the whole world to take it seriously.

The Holy Quran says that the earth rotates as a result of the mountains firmly established as pegs which are the positives and the valleys where rivers flow and the level lands, fertile for farming are the negatives. This is made so to create the Balance on earth. Under no circumstances, should the Balance be disturbed unduly after it has been set in order. Nobody has looked at why there are mountains and valleys at certain places and not at other places. This is a well calculated designed and a system to keep the earth evenly balanced on its axis and orbit.

SHEIHU SALAWATIA (QUTUB AZ-ZAMAAN)
RASHID HUSSAIN SALWAT

Praise be to Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Beneficent, the Most High. I pray for the perpetual Peace and Blessings of Allah to bear upon the Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) and his household. Fellow Muslims, Eid ul-Adha is undoubtedly a remarkable mile stone in Islam. It is not only for the annual celebration, but also to serve as a lesson and to guide us in our daily lives and for our success in this world and the hereafter.

On this memorable occasion of Eid ul-Adha, I call on world leaders to promote peace and tranquility in their various countries and draw the lessons of Prophet Ibrahim to inspire them and their people. Prophet Ibrahim went through a great test and became a shining example for believers in Allah and in the Last day. What can be more challenging than being asked to sacrifice one’s beloved son, after being childless till old age?

Allah says in the Holy Quran 37: 102-111. When his son reached the age of serious work with him, he said: “O my son! (meaning Prophet Ismail) I saw in a vision that I offered you in sacrifice: what is your view!” His son said: “O my father, do as you are commanded: you will find me, if Allah wills, among the Patients!” So when they had both submitted their wills to Allah, and he laid him prostrate on his forehead for the sacrifice, We called out to him, “O Ibrahim!” you have indeed obeyed your Lord!” Thus indeed do We reward those who do right. For this was an obvious trial. We ransomed him with a momentous sacrifice: And We left this blessing for also generations to come. “Peace and salutation be upon Ibrahim!” Thus indeed do We reward those who do right. For he was one of Our believing Servants.

My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, Allah Almighty has chosen the 10th day of Zul-Hija which is a Nahisi day (a day of evil omen ) for us to celebrate Eid ul-Adha, slaughter a ram and pray to Him to convert all the bad days in the year to good days. Therefore it is important for all Muslims to observe the celebration of the Eid on the 10th day. Converting the bad days to good days will bring us permanent peace.

The issue of permanent peace in the world should be of great concern to all of us. Peace is not just the absence of war, but a state of living without fear and grief. For instance one cannot be at peace with oneself and the society if one cannot access basic necessities of life.

The greatest challenge that the human race has ever faced and is still facing is to live in a world free of threat and free of violence. Violence exists everywhere nowadays, in our homes, schools and communities. Where there is injustice, violence and conflicts are inevitable. Conflicts at both the local and international levels come about as a result of exploitation, poverty, corruption and what have you.

Allah says in the Holy Quran 16:90: Allah commands justice, the doing of good, and generosity to kin, and He forbids all shameful deeds, injustice and rebellion: He instructs you, that you may receive admonition.

Let us see peace as a struggle towards world unity, characterized by an absence of violence in all its forms. Let us build a society that is free from discrimination based on gender, age, race, religion, social and economic status. Let us tirelessly pursue nonviolent solutions to all misunderstandings, and work for economic and social justice, celebrate diversity, and strive to build relationships between adversaries through education, conflict mediation, mutual respect and co-operation.

From the international scene, let us come home. Dear brothers and sisters, fellow countrymen, let us not do anything to bring about disunity, conflicts and what have you. I am therefore appealing to politicians and opinion leaders to reframe from doing anything to disturb the already peaceful atmosphere we are enjoying. The culture of insult from our political fronts is not the best. Our politicians should do all they can to lead exemplary lives by fostering unity amongst the people.

I call on the media to reframe from entertaining people who would want to bring about public disturbance. The media should also be circumspect in their reportage. Let us all do what we can to be each others keeper. Let us help the poor, the destitute and the vulnerable in society. Let us help to educate the youth about respect for elders in society. Let us educate our children and Ghanaians as a whole about the need for quality education.

I call on the religious leaders, to pray continuously for the prosperity of the nation and for the government to succeed in its policies. And the revenue which will be accrued from the oil should be used successfully in creating employment for the majority of the youth in Ghana. And also equip the security personnel so as to reduce the rate of armed robbery and crime in our society.

I call on all spiritual leaders to help me pray to maintain the peace we are enjoying in the world now and also pray to prevent the disasters that are befalling the world nowadays.

I pray for the Government. I pray for all the chiefs and people of Dagbon. I pray for all the chiefs and people of Ghana. I pray for the prosperity of our dear country. I pray for peace for the entire world. I pray for all Muslims the world over.

The spiritual leader of the Salawatiya Muslim Mission, Sheikh Imam Hussein Rashid has taken a swipe at Dagbon scholars for engaging in media warfare to settle scores.

Describing the practice as senseless and undemocratic, he implored them to foster the development of the northern part of the country.
