At the outset, I express My thanks to you for making Me so happy in the month of Ramadhaan, giving Me lots of kisses, holding Me to your heart most of the time, giving Me all your love and affection, reading a page here, memorizing a surah there – my happiness reached such a level that I don’t know whether I was lucky to have Myself in your hand or were you so fortunate to have Me in your hand.

After finding so much care and love from you, I now weep in solitude. Do you know that even?

Imagine that you are the apple of everyone’s eyes. All Muslims in the world like you so much. People come to you and talk to you so affectionately, they shower all their love and warmth. They even touch you with respect. They love you like anything…

…..And then, suddenly they stop coming…

How Ramadhaan fasts + 6 Shawwal fasts make fasting every day?

Eid-ul-Fitr marks the first day of Shawwal, the tenth month of the Islamic calendar.

Fasting six days of the month of Shawwal is mentioned in authentic hadeeth.

Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: 

“Whosoever fasted in Ramadhaan and then followed up with six fasting days of Shawwal, it is like fasting every day.” (Muslim)

Qur’an and understanding. Understanding and Muslims. Muslims and Qur’an. And what about this equation?

YasSarNal QuR’aN: We have made the Qur’an easy!

Allah Tabaaraka Wa Ta’aala repeats this ayah وَلَقَدْ يَسَّرْنَا الْقُرْآنَ لِلذِّكْرِ فَهَلْ مِن مُّدَّكِرٍ four times in Surah al Qamar.

In the Qur’an, where there is repetition of an ayah, there is emphasis. There is meaning. There is a loud and clear message.

This ayah, which is profound in its message, is a crystal clear proclamation from Allah subhanahu wa Ta’aala that He has “indeed made the Qur’an easy“. Let us understand this ayah by splitting into three parts:

Legacy of the Prophet

An excellent treatise on the “Legacy of the Prophet sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam” based on his advice to Abdullah ibn Abbas (radhiyallaahu anhu) by Hafiz ibn Rajab al Hanbali.

Rich explanation of a very popular hadeeth:

“Safeguard Allah and He will safeguard you. Safeguard Allah and you will find Him in front of you. Know Allah in times of ease and He will know you in times of hardship. When you ask, ask Allah. When you seek aid, turn to Allah. The Pen has dried (after having written) all that will occur………..”

In times of difficulty …..Do not grieve, for Allah is with us!

As atrocities continue on the oppressed Gazans in particular and the hapless Palestinians in general, and while global Muslims make tons of du’aas beseeching Allah’s help, we need to have hope that things are not always as they seem.

Having said that, I would like you to recall the most inspiring advice our glorious Prophet, Sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam gave to his companion-in-hiding:

Helping Oppressed Muslims

What is our stance concerning the slaughter of Muslims in Palestine and other parts of the world that is happening right now, where houses are being destroyed, farms are being wrecked, children are being killed, the wounded are being detained in the streets, houses are being bombarded and people are being prevented by the Jews and others, from buying the food and drink that they need?

What can I, as a Muslim, do?

What the world is doing with Israeli atrocities in Gaza?

Ongoing Israeli Airstrikes Kill 14 In Gaza, Death Toll 121 reports Countercurrents.

Israel bomb hits disabled centre in Gaza says Al Jazeera

Israel targets Gaza mosque as death toll passes 120 reports The Hindu.

News – and Muslim News – such as the above do not matter!

Watching World Cup is more important than voicing concern for human life.

Who cares whether a Muslim is burnt alive or a mosque is destroyed in Gaza!

What the International community and Human Rights organisations are doing?

Where are the people who designed the slogan ‘War on terror’? Sleeping? or Pretending to sleep?

Stop hypocrisy and be a man. Be a human being.

Stop double-standards and show that you care. By stopping the aggressors!!

Summer, Sun, Shadow and……Submission!

MuQeet:

As summer is scorching, this is a reminder of the fire of Jahannum.

Allaahumma ajirnaa min-nan-naar. O Allah! Save us from the Hell-fire. Aameen.

Living in UAE in hot summer is extremely uncomfortable. It is only a blessing of Allah that people are able to withstand and are happily continuing with their fasts despite heatwaves, alhamdulillah.

Well, I would like to share with you a lesson-rich experience which I encountered today.

While walking to the masjid for Zuhr prayer, I was looking for shadows of the buildings around to walk under the shade to protect myself from the scorching sun. After offering sunnah prayers, I started continuing with my Tilawah. After reciting only a few verses I came across this ayah which spoke about the same very thing I was doing just before coming to the masjid: find shadows to protect you! Subhanallaah!

Ramadhaan: The Month of Jihad

We come across many Islamic scholars and websites discussing about Ramadhaan as the month of forgiveness, of tawbah, of Qur’an, of generosity, of patience etc. Seldom do we find people discussing Ramadhaan as the month of Jihad.

If you read the biography of Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-lahu-alaihi-wa-sallam, you will come to know very well that Ramadhaan has been the month of striving against evil. The Prophet sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam never found any excuse of Ramadhaan being the month of fasting and spiritual upliftment and thus delaying or postponing his mission of striving against evil.

Making the Most of Ramadhaan

MuQeet:

وَذَكِّرْ فَإِنَّ الذِّكْرَىٰ تَنفَعُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ
“And remind, for indeed, the reminder benefits the Believers”.

As Ramadhaan is round the corner, you may come across lots of books/articles on internet etc. discussing about fasting, zakah and all.

Of all the books, I would rate this short and sweet write-up by one of the most prolific writers of modern times, late Ustadh Khurram Murad*, as No. 1 – the top most book ever written on the subject ‘Making the Most of Ramadhaan’. 

I request all my readers to please take time to read this 34-page book well before the coming of the blessed month, Inshaa’Allah. Even if you have read this book before, still this is worth-reading again.

Welcoming Shabaan

Things become easy for a person if he/she is in a habit of doing something regularly, and in advance.

The one who practices charity on a regular basis finds it very easy to give out Zakah once in a year. 

The student who studies and prepares himself in a systematic way, finds it easy while sitting for the exams. 

Establishing Salah is not hard on those who are in the habit of offering nafl, that is extra/supererogatory prayers, regularly.

Islam appreciates this approach in order to make things easy FOR THE MAIN EVENT.

The Ever Winning Business

Merchandise. Investment and Returns. Buying and Selling. Profit and Loss. Balance Sheet. Asset and Liability. Stocking Taking and Accountability. Audit and Auditor.

These terms go beyond the normal meaning of business, trade or commerce.

Islam is business with Allah. You invest your time, talents, wealth and your own life in His cause, and He gives you in return, an unfailing reward.

This ‘Business’ with Allah brings nothing but profit. Other than this, by Allah! every other endeavor of man is an exercise in futility

Israa wal Me’raaj

Dear brothers/sisters, Assalamu Alaikum.

Every year in the month of Rajab we find Muslims around the world talking, discussing etc. about this unique incident that took place in the glorious life of Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam. It has become a common ‘belief’ among us that this fascinating episode took place in the month of Rajab while the fact is otherwise!

I was reluctant to have this re-posted for the fear of becoming one among those who “follow the crowd”. But then I gave second thought and reconsidered to go ahead with the sole intention to educate and convey the truth of the matter.

Two articles are given here, one is in pdf form, which gives a thorough analysis on different aspects of al Israa wa Me’raaj and the other one is a short article, a fatwa, on whether to celebrate the occasion or not.

The Qur’anic Art of Effective Communication

PS: A pdf of this post is given at the end.

Most of the time I feel that I am unable to follow the gloriously graceful guidance provided to me by my Creator when it comes to talking with people and communicating with others. It could be due to lack of patience and wisdom. It could be due to my foolhardiness or because of the boisterous nature. This happens to me especially when I get agitated or angry due to circumstances or situations. And later on you end up feeling regret for not following the Qur’anic guidance.

One lesson life has taught me is if you want to prevail over your own self and hence over the situation, change your approach by adopting the Qur’anic guidance on communication and dialogue. People will listen to you, and you will be able to make your point clear.  Continue reading

The Qur’an of Fajr: In the stillness and serenity before dawn

Early Hours before dawn is the most productive time by all means.  Our glorious Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam, his noble companions and the pious predecessors of the Muslim Ummah used to value this time by indulging in great acts of worshiping one’s Creator. 

Allah mentions in the Qur’an that His righteous servants do give up sleep by arising from their beds to make du’aa, offer Qiyamul layl (Night Prayer) and seek forgiveness for their sins, one’s omissions and commissions.  Continue reading
