Critical Thinking: Best Tribute to Prophet Ibraheem

بسم الله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله

These are the blessed days of Dhul Hijjah. And we all know that Hajj is connected with the life and teachings of Prophet Ibraheem alaihis salam.

Qur’an mentions that Prophet Ibraheem is the best role model for all humanity.

What a great tribute indeed it would be if we, as parents and teachers, kindle or lighten up in our children the spark of critical thinking. You know why this is so special, more so when we are indebted to the immaculate contributions of Prophet Ibraheem? Continue reading

Blessed Days, Blessed Souls

بسم الله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله

🙂 Alhamdulillaah, the blessed month of Dhul Hijjah has commenced 🙂

As per the official announcement in Saudi Arabia, UAE and adjoining places, today (12th Aug) is the First Day of Dhul Hijjah 1439. Accordingly, the Day of Arafah will fall on Monday, the 20th August, and Tuesday, 21st August, will be the first day of Eid al Adhaa. (Please check out for the local announcement done in your respective place as one has to go by the fatwa of one’s region)

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
