🙂 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.

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
