Saying “Laa Haula Wa Laa Quwwata il-la-Bil-Laah”

PS: As March 15 will witness a solar eclipse in some parts of the world, thought of reminding specific readers about Islamic perspectives on Eclipse. Baarakallaahu feekum.

لا حَوْلَ وَلا قُوَّةَ إِلا بِالله  Laa Hawla Wa Laa Quwwata Il-la Bil-laah is one of the powerful statements proclaimed by the believers in Islam.

According to the glorious Prophet, Muhammad, peace be upon him, it is “one of the treasures of Paradise”.

You turn, He turns, and success is yours!

The act of ‘turning to’ someone or something involves conscious participation on the part of the one who turns.  You cannot force a person to ‘turn to’ something when he is not ready or not willing to turn.

Or a person may be willing ‘to turn’ but his laziness may not let him do so. So you need to ‘put life’ into the person so as to make him active and lively.

The Last Laugh

He who laughs last, laughs best.  The last laugh always gives the satisfaction of ultimate triumph or success especially after being scorned or regarded as a failure. This proverb is very much Qur’anic.

Today, jesting, jeering and mocking at Muslims and Prophet Muhammad (sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam) has become the order of the day.

Dhikr, Dhikra, Tadhkira.

Qur’an is ذكر Dhikr. Qur’an is الذِّكْرَىٰ Dhikra. Qur’an is تذكرة Tadhkira as well.

Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam, the one who presented the Qur’an to the world, is مذكّر Mudhakkir. One of the purposes of the Qur’an is to make people يتذكرون ‘Yatadhak’karoon’.

So, at the outset, what is the meaning of Dhikr, Dhikra and Tadhkira?

Man between pleasant wind and stormy wind

Man loves to see, feel and enjoy things that are pleasant. He, by nature, hates things that are unpleasant, scary or gloomy.

You feel delighted when pleasant wind touches you. When you are at a lush green area, surrounded by exquisite fountains and beautiful flowers, you have a different feeling altogether.

As the weather changes, replacing pleasant wind with fiery, strong or stormy wind, your face also changes. Your feelings go topsy-turvy. You become sad.

Qur’an presents both the scenarios and highlights an important nature of man.

Most Suitable, Most Precise, Most Upright….Subhanallaah!

Qur’an uses rich words that are mind-boggling and overwhelming. Those that create a strong and vivid impression in the minds of the readers. Qur’anic vocabulary is expressively impressive and impressively expressive.

However, the purpose of the Qur’an is not to weave rich tapestry leading to intellectual exercises and literary debates on the part of the readers but the purpose is to convey the truth in the most miraculous a manner. So the Qur’an, which is a miracle in human language, serves to guide mankind in all spheres of life.

With clinical precision, Allah says about His inimitable Book in the following words:

Yusr, Yusra or Yaseer means ease or relief and ‘Usr, ‘Usra or ‘Aseer means hardship or difficulty.

Everybody wants to make his or her life free of hardship and difficulties.

Islam guides people as to what leads to ease and comfort and what brings misery, distress and difficulties.

Allāh repeatedly describes the great Qur’ān as being a ‘light’, unmistakable, clear in articulation and beautiful in its instructions. He, the Most High says:

What belongs to Allah?

Note to non-Muslim readers: Some mistake Allah to be “Muslim God” or God of Muslims. This is far from truth. Allah is the proper name of the One, True and the Only Lord of all mankind and all that exists in the heavens and the earth. He is my Creator and your Creator. He is unseen and has no images. Thank you.

Given the fact that everything belongs to Allah, this question might appear stupid or innocent.

Getting to understand something of everything that belongs to Allah will only lead one to appreciate the greatness of Allah. It will also increase your faith in your Creator.

So let’s explore what the Creator Himself says about what all belongs to Him, and Him alone.

2015: International Year of Light

The Year 2015 is observed as the International Year of Light by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation. It was officially launched today at UNESCO’s headquarters in Paris, France.

An initiative of UNESCO and a large consortium of scientific bodies including the prestigious 1001 Inventions, the International Year of Light will consist of coordinated activities on national, regional and international levels. Wide range of activities are planned so that people of all ages and all backgrounds can gain an appreciation for the central role of light in life, science and culture, and as a cross-cutting scientific discipline that can advance sustainable development.

Muslim intellectuals and organisations must render their total support to this global programme especially because this is the theme of Prophet Muhammad’s mission: From Darkness To Light. Continue reading

From Gallery To Football Court!

The latest French magazine issue must be taken as an opportunity to learn and proceed with new energy. We need to move from being reactive to being proactive adopting positive approach for the cause of Islam.

Islam being the way of life produced, directed, chosen, approved, inspired and powered by Allah, none in the world has any potency to extinguish His Light. None!

The whole humanity with all resources put together cannot simply wipe out the religion of Islam. One can mock at the Prophet. One can slander Muslims and defame their religion. One can draw cartoons and prove his bankruptcy of civilized behavior. Stupid absurdities cannot harm even a hair of the Prophet, peace be upon him.

Barking dogs seldom bite. But then the need of the hour is to save the fabric of humanity from the possible bites left by some ferocious beasts.

Dear Charlie Hebdo, the “champions” of Freedom of Expression.

So you did it today. Happy as you must be for making good business.

You said in your lead editorial, “For the past week, Charlie, an atheist newspaper, has achieved more miracles than all the saints and prophets combined.”

You were tiny in the print media publishing only 60,000 copies but now your print has gone up to five million copies.

As a Muslim, I’m Fed Up With the Hypocrisy of the Free Speech Fundamentalists

MuQeet:

When people ridicule and mock at Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam, it really pains the global Muslim community. It pains us more when you mock at him under the garb of “freedom of expression”. Well, this pain is personal to a Muslim and people devoid of the milk of humanity will never understand such a pain.
This article is an excellent response by a Muslim to put sense in the maddening minds of Free Speech Extremists! If only they have sense!!

Qur’anic Du’aa of Angels for the Believers :)

In Surah Ghaafir (also known as Surah al Mu’min) Allah mentions a beautiful du’aa of forgiveness by the Angels for all sincere Muslims.

These no ordinary angels make an amazing du’aa for no ordinary Muslims!

The angels making this du’aa are the Carriers of Allah’s Throne who always glorify and praise Him through Tasbeeh and Tahmeed. They are those who are closest to Allah and also those who are around Him.

These noble angels make du’aa for those Muslims who not only seek repentance but also sincerely follow the Straight Path.

Let us learn this beautiful du’aa, Inshaa’allah.

1) The birth of Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam

2) The hijrah of Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam

Muslims have reasons to feel happy on the birth of Jesus!

We Muslims do not celebrate the birth of Jesus but then we read about his birth umpteen number of times in a year.

Muslims read about Jesus – his miraculous birth, his life and teachings, his mission and miracles – in amazing details in the Qur’an.

From Surah al Baqarah to Surah as Saff, Allah mentions the name of Eesa (Jesus) 25 times in the Qur’an.

As millions of Muslims read the Qur’an on a daily basis, it is not surprising to say that we Muslims, in fact, rejoice learning about him and his mother Maryam throughout the year.

Furthermore, by following his teachings, we love, revere and honour Jesus, peace be upon him, throughout our life.

The miracle in ‘Aayah’

This aayah enchants me a lot: سَنُرِيهِمْ آيَاتِنَا فِي الْآفَاقِ وَفِي أَنفُسِهِمْ حَتَّىٰ يَتَبَيَّنَ لَهُمْ أَنَّهُ الْحَقُّ

“We will show them Our signs in the horizons and within themselves until it becomes clear to them that it is the truth.” (Surah Fussilat 41: 53)

And this aayah:

هُوَ الَّذِي بَعَثَ فِي الْأُمِّيِّينَ رَسُولًا مِّنْهُمْ يَتْلُو عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتِهِ وَيُزَكِّيهِمْ وَيُعَلِّمُهُمُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَإِن كَانُوا مِن قَبْلُ لَفِي ضَلَالٍ مُّبِينٍ

“It is He who has sent among the unlettered a Messenger from themselves reciting to them His verses and purifying them and teaching them the Book and wisdom – although they were before in clear error”. (Surah al Jumu’ah 62: 2)

The myriad of meanings that the word ‘aayah’ connotes is miraculous indeed.

The verses of the Qur’an are in fact the signs of understanding for men of understanding!

I read and re-read this book. Not satisfied, again read and re-read. Every time I read, the message came out live, relevant and refreshing. And how could it not be so when it is about the noble life and splendid life-style of Allah’s Messenger, Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam.

The title of the book is amazing: A Day in the life of Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam. The eminent author, Sheikh Abdul al Wahhab al Turayri, has presented the events in such a lucid manner, that you will never feel like keeping the book aside without having read it from first page down to the last.

You can’t drive with a punctured wheel. And if you try driving, you will only cause accident.

In the wheel of life, there shouldn’t be any holes. Wasting time or not being punctual is an act of puncturing.

More than anyone, Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam has taught us so much about the importance of time. Islam inculcates punctuality in us.

The caring Prophet, and a community so unmoved!

Every Friday, for more than one thousand four hundred years, it has been the practice of thousands of Muslims the world over to recite the Surah al Kahf.

This Surah, like other suwar of the Qur’an, has in its fold an ocean depth of meanings that gives Muslims a purpose to live, a sense of direction.

Today I would like to highlight an important aspect about the personality of the glorious Prophet, Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam, which this amazing Surah brings into limelight.

This aspect of our Prophet’s personality is often ignored by most of the Muslims in the world. Those who talk a lot about the fiqhi or jurisprudential  aspects of religious matters seldom get time even to ponder over this aspect of the Messenger of Allah.

Hardly we find Muslims in the world today observing this sunnah. 

Even if we adopt one percent of what our Benefactor use to feel, we would be doing a great service to our own selves in our day to day life. And those who have dedicated their life – such fortunate ones are unfortunately less in the world – to care and share the treasure of Islam to humanity, are really worthy of being called true followers of Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam. May Allah make us one among those fortunate few. Aameen.

Well, what is that thing that was in the person of the Prophet which is badly lacking in most of us?  Continue reading
