An Effort in Facilitation

This 7th-Century-Book Promotes Writing!

بسم الله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله –  السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

It is indeed one of the blessings of Islam that mankind is blessed with a divine Book – preserved in pristine purity – that talks about revelation, education, divine guidance and enlightenment of the highest level.

The Qur’an that was revealed to humanity’s last and final Messenger, Prophet Muhammad, in the 7th century A.D. encourages and promotes writing as a necessary aspect of human life.

Let us have a glance at some of the Qur’anic verses which emphasize on writing as a functional principle of a civilized society. Continue reading

Qur’anic Style of Inculcating Effective Listening Skill

The general purpose of presenting human history in the Qur’an is to warn people not to repeat the mistakes of the perished nations.

Surah al Haqqaah begins with a vivid description of the destruction of the People of Saalih (Thamood), Huud (‘Aad), Musa (Phir’oun), Luut (Mu’tafikaat) and Nooh.

What comes after the historical narrative is a miracle in human language. A clarion call to heed to the message of the glorious Qur’an. A pointer towards effective listening! Continue reading

Saviours of Islamic Spirit

This work of historical importance by the eminent Islamic scholar of the 20th Century (late) Sheikh Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi has not become as popular as it should have been. Unfortunate also is the news that the publication of this significant work by the original publisher has been stopped!!

The series written in four volumes under the title Saviours of Islamic Spirit is of immense value to a student of Islamic history and civilization. Muslims, especially those of Asian origin, will find an oceanic depth of information about their past. Continue reading

The Book of Life

Note: I found this short write-up by Shaykh Waheeduddin Khan to be worthy of sharing.

The book of life is constantly turning its leaves. Every morning opens a new page. It adds to the leaves turned and lessens the remaining ones. The day is not far when you will be enjoying the last moments of your life. The book then will be closed and all your entries saved. Continue reading
