12 days have passed since the start of the Hijri Year 1438, and today is 13th of Muharram.

So the simple question is: Who is a Muslim?
And What is the hijrah for the modern day Muslim?
Suffice is to quote a relevant hadeeth here: Continue reading

Allahumma Baarik Lana Feema A’tayt is a beautiful du’aa indeed.
It means ‘O Allah! Bless Us in What You’ve Given Us’.
We need to know why we need Allah’s Blessings in what we have with us.
I read this beautiful explanation of the phrase وَبَارِكْ لِي فِيمَا أَعْطَيْتَ – Wa Baarik lee feema A’tayt – “Bless me in what You have given…” by Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen, and shared with my readers last Ramadhaan. Re-posting this insightful content as it is worth sharing again. Continue reading
أَيَّامًا مَّعْدُودَاتٍ – Ayyaamam Ma’duudaat – is the apt description for the Month of Fasting. Limited Number of Days!

1/3rd 1/2 of Ramadhaan 1437 is gone!! Subhanallaah!
