Reflections on Surah al Ikhlaas

بسم الله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله

Dear brothers and sisters, Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu.

I am sure you must be aware that the links to the week’s Jumu’ah Khutbah in UAE are given here but I do not post it as a separate post to avoid frequent postings.

Today’s Khutbah was on Surah al Ikhlaas (“Qul Huwal-laahu Ahad”) and I feel every Muslim must go through this as the content is of much benefit for everyday living. Continue reading

Unlocking the Locked Hearts

بسم الله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله

In Surah Muhammad there is this thinking ayah:

أَفَلَا يَتَدَبَّرُونَ الْقُرْآنَ أَمْ عَلَىٰ قُلُوبٍ أَقْفَالُهَا

The meaning of this ayah attracts my attention. It is normally translated as follows:

“Then do they not reflect upon the Qur’an, or are there locks upon [their] hearts?” [Surah Muhammad 47: 24

But there is more to the meaning than this translation.  Continue reading

The Sunnahs of Fasting

بسم الله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله

Fasting is one of the greatest acts of worship, and the reward of the one who fasts, seeking thereby the reward of Allah, is not known to anyone except Allah. The Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Allah, may He be glorified and exalted, said: ‘Every deed of the son of Adam is for him, except fasting. It is for Me and I shall reward for it.’” Narrated by al-Bukhaari (1904) and Muslim (1151)

The Ramadan fast is one of the pillars of Islam, and the Muslim must pay attention to preserving his fast, whether it is obligatory or supererogatory, so that Allah may bestow upon him this abundant reward.

There are many Sunnahs with regard to fasting, of which we will mention some:  Continue reading

Jerusalem in the Qur’an

بسم الله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله

“And when it is said to them, ‘Do not cause corruption on the earth,’ they say, “We are but reformers.” Surah al Baqarah 2:11
