TO GET BLESSINGS OF HUNDRED MARTYRS (PART 1)

A’udhu billah-imin-esh-shaytan-ir-rajim
Bi-s-mi-llah-ir-Rahman-ir-Rahim

Resulullah ‘sall-Allahu ’alaihi wa sallam’ stated: “When fasad (mischief, instigation, disunion, tumult) runs rife among my Ummat (Muslims), a person who abides by my Sunnat [1] will acquire blessings equal to the amount deserved by a hundred martyrs.” Scholars affiliated with any one of the four Madhhabs [2], (which are, namely, Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi’i and Hanbali,) are called Scholars of Ahl as-Sunna [3]. The leader of the scholars of Ahl as-Sunna is al-Imam al-a’zam Abu Hanifa. These scholars recorded what they had heard from the Sahaba-i-kiram [4], who, in their turn, had told them what they had heard from the Messenger of Allah ‘sall-Allahu ’alaihi wa sallam’.

The earth is populated by three groups of people today:
1– Disbelievers. These people say that they are not Muslims. Jews and Christians are in this group.
2– The Sunni Muslims. These people exist with an ever-increasing population in every country.
3– (Hypocrites called) Munafiqs. They say that they are Muslims. With respect to iman [5] and some acts of worship, they are not comparable to the Ahl as-Sunnat. They are not true Muslims.
