1) is it true that if one is from Syeds` family he would be shown more mercy than that of a simple muslim or would he be straightly forgiven? (syeds: direct descendents of the Prophet)

 

2) Is it true that Prophet asked Allah to fforgive his followers and then ultimately Allah agreed upon forgiving the sins of the ppl who were born in the vicinity of Makkah?

Answer:

 

Syeds and makkah forgiven

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Q-1: is it true that if one is from Syeds` family he would be shown more mercy than that of a simple muslim or would he be straightly forgiven? (syeds: direct descendents of the Prophet)

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 41 Surah Haa Meem verse 46:

46 Whoever works righteousness benefits his own soul; whoever works evil it is against his own soul: nor is thy Lord ever unjust (in the least) to His servants.




 

Allah says in the Holy Quran: Chapter 49 Surah Hujurat verse 13:

O mankind, We created you from one man and one woman, and then divided you into nations and tribes so that you may recognize one another. Indeed, the most honorable among you in the sight of Allah is he who is the most pious of you. Surely Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise.

 

Dear and beloved brother in Islam, The Lord Most Just, Most Gracious does not reward or punish one based on ones lineage, or race, or color, etc.; but the basis of Allahs Mercy or Allahs Wrath is determined by the individuals own state of belief and his/her deeds alone!

 

The clear guidance of the Glorious Quran is evidence and proof that the Noble Prophet Nuh (a.s.) could not avail anything for his disbelieving son against the Wrath and Punishment of Allah Subhanah; nor could the Noble Prophet Lut (a.s.) avail anything for his disbelieving wife; nor could the father of the Prophets, the Khaleel and closest friend of Allah, the Noble Prophet Ibraheem (a.s.) avail anything for his own father against the Wrath of Allah Subhanah!!!

 

Allah is our witness brother, it is absolutely absurd and incongruous to even contemplate, leave alone believe, that one will be forgiven by the Lord only because one happens to be a descendant of the Noble Messenger of Allah (saws)! This is no more than a blatant and manifest lie the ignorant have invented themselves and attributed it to the Lord Most Just, Most High, Most Majestic!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 7 Surah Aaraf verse 37:

Then, who can be more wicked than the one who invents falsehood and attributes these to Allah, or treats the True Revelations as false?

 

The Noble Messenger of Allah (saws) himself never encouraged this thought or belief that he could avail anyone against Allah Subhanah; and time and time again he warned that none could save oneself from the Wrath and Punishment of their Lord Creator except through their own belief, their own deeds; and above all, the Mercy of their Lord Most Gracious.

 

Sahih Muslim Hadith 401 Narrated by Aisha

When this verse (of the Quran) was revealed: And warn thy nearest kindred, the Messenger of Allah (saws) stood up on (Mount) Safa' and declared: O Fatimah, daughter of Muhammad (saws), O Safiyyah (the aunt of the Prophet (saws), daughter of Abdul-Muttalib, O son (the Prophets uncles) of Abdul-Muttalib, I have nothing which can avail you against Allah; you may ask me what you want of my worldly belongings!

 

Beloved brother, the justice of the All-Just Lord is such on those who die in the state of disbelief, that the Noble Prophet (saws) was not even allowed by the Lord Most Just to even ask forgiveness for his deceased parents!

 

Abu Hurairah reported: "The Prophet (saws) visited his mother' s grave and cried, and everyone there cried with him. Then the Prophet (saws) said: 'I sought my Lord's permission to seek forgiveness for her, but He did not permit me. I then sought permission to visit her grave and He permitted me to do this. You should visit graves, because they will remind you of the reality of death.''

Sahih Muslim Hadith 398 Narrated by Anas ibn Malik

Verily a person asked: O Messenger of Allah (saws), where is my father? He (saws) said: (He) is in the Fire. When he turned away, he (the Prophet (saws)) called him and said: Verily my father and your father are (both) in the Fire!

 

Beloved brother in Islam, rest absolutely assured that the Mercy or the Punishment of the Lord Most Just, Most High is not based on ones lineage.but each will be Judged with Justice by the Lord Most Just according to their belief and their deeds.

 

Q-2: Is it true that Prophet asked Allah to fforgive his followers and then ultimately Allah agreed upon forgiving the sins of the ppl who were born in the vicinity of Makkah?

Beloved brother, there is absolutely nothing in the Quran or the authentic and established Sunnah which even comes close to the vent that one will be forgiven only because they were born in the vicinity of the Sacred Mosque or Makkah or any other place in the world!!!

 

The Lord Most Supreme, Most Majestic does not base His Mercy or His Forgiveness on the place or date of ones birth, or the place or date of ones death, or on the race, color, lineage, etc. of any individual..the only things which will determine whether one receives the Lords Mercy or Wrath is the state of ones own belief and deeds, and above all the Mercy of the Lord Most Merciful!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran: Chapter 49 Surah Hujurat verse 13:

O mankind, We created you from one man and one woman, and then divided you into nations and tribes so that you may recognize one another. Indeed, the most honorable among you in the sight of Allah is he who is the most pious of you. Surely Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise.

 

If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
