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

Who is bothered when boys attain puberty?

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

Do not forget your share of the world!

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

An Inspiring Story of All Times

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!

Found a Bad Friend. Let him get lost!

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
