Dear non-believers in Islam,
May God’s Peace and Blessings be upon you.
Most of you ‘believe’ that Qur’an is for Muslims alone. No way! Qur’an is for all.
Well, this is not your mistake. My community is responsible for this general misunderstanding among non-Muslims worldwide.
In this post, you will find a collection of verses from the glorious Qur’an addressing mankind. Before you proceed, I would like to briefly clarify two things. Continue reading
When a female child in a Muslim family gets her first menses, the whole family gets to know about it! Boys in the family start giggling that something has happened to their sister or cousin. Some shameless Muslim families even ‘celebrate’ the occasion! ‘Our daughter has attained puberty’!
In case of boys, neither the boy knows the Islamic indication and implication of attaining puberty nor his parents bother to teach him the etiquette of puberty and the responsibilities it brings alongside. Continue reading
Dear readers, Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu.

As the new academic year is round the corner for many schools in Asia particularly, thought of uploading these beautiful books for download. I hope some parents, teachers and students would find these books to their advantage, InshaaAllah. Continue reading
Do you know that Allah takes our souls in our sleep?
And it is His mercy and decree that He returns our souls to our bodies after having taken it during our sleep!
He tells us this spiritual-cum-scientific fact in Surah Az-Zumar of the glorious Qur’an: Continue reading
Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu.
Sharing this interesting post as a prelude to my next write-up, inshaaAllah…
About sleep, Allah Subhanahu wa ta’aala mentioned in the Holy Qur’an that “Among His signs is sleep” (30:23) and “and made your sleep for rest” (78:9) Continue reading
Allah is the Creator of water. And water is the source of life.
People use water for their survival, and forget its Creator!
As water is essential to life, so is the Creator.
The more you appreciate the blessings of water in your life, the more grateful you will be to your Creator.
Presenting, in a nutshell, some facts from the glorious Qur’an and the noble hadeeth on the occasion of World Water Day for everyone including the men in the United Nations to reflect and draw lessons, InshaaAllah. Continue reading
This ayah from Surah al Qasas seeks to strike balance between dunya and Aakhirah.
Your involvement in worldly activities should not go to such extent that you tend to forget Aakhirah and the life to come.
Similarly your involvement in religious or spiritual activities should not make you an ascetic in that you tend to ignore the lawful enjoyment that this world has to offer. Continue reading

PS: I wrote this post 4 years ago when this blog had not many followers/readers. Don’t know whether you have read this before. If yes, thank you so much and Jazakallah Khayr. If not, please read and share, InshaaAllah. And btw, this is one of my best write-ups, alhamdulillah, and I am glad to say this. Baarakallaahu Feekum.
‘Then He will not neglect us’.
Can you recall which blessed Muslim woman in history said this uniquely inspiring statement? If your answer was Hajar, then you guessed it right!
Do you know the background in which this exceptionally bold lady uttered this revolutionary statement – a statement which I feel has assumed the shape of a dew drop that is permanently embedded in the cheek of time! Continue reading

Read, enjoy and glorify Allah for revealing the glorious Qur’an for the welfare of mankind. Continue reading
While writing about the Numbers in the Qur’an, I noticed that I missed one type that should have actually gone into the post, ‘Categories of Friends in the Qur’an’.
This lost ‘friend’ is actually a bad companion. And without knowing about him or her in the first place, you cannot brush him/her aside by saying ‘Get Lost’!
So let us first know who this 12th category of friend is, and then let us make every possible effort to distance ourselves from him or her, InshaaAllah. Continue reading
In first part we tried to learn the cardinal numbers in the Qur’an. Here are the ordinal numbers and a few fractions that are found mentioned in the Qur’an. Continue reading
