Hope this post helps, inshaaAllah.

The Likeness of Ramadhaan and Prophet Yusuf

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

This write-up, by the great scholar Ibn al-Jawzi, is very interesting. The author co-relates the Story of Yusuf and his 11 brothers with Ramadhaan and the other 11 months of the year.

“The month of Ramadan to the other months is like Yusuf to his brothers. So, just like Yusuf was the most beloved son to Ya’qub, Ramadan is likewise the most beloved month to Allah.  Continue reading

Shariah is for Human Welfare

Today ‘Shariah‘ is projected in the media as if it is something dreadful!

The hate-merchants, with all their propaganda, overt and covert agenda, would like you to ‘believe’ that Shariah is warfare while the fact is that Shariah is for human welfare!

In reality it is a ‘Clear Path’ laid down by the Almighty Himself so that man can legislate his affairs in the light of His guidance.

Linguistically, the word “Shariah” means “the way to a waterhole”. Continue reading

It is Jazakallaah Khayra, not just Jazakallaah!

When someone does any favour or says something good, you show your gratitude to him by saying ‘Thank You’. As a Muslim, it is better to prefer saying “Jazakallah Khayra” which means ‘May Allah reward you with goodness’.

Of course, no one intends to mean evil or say bad. But then it is always good to use the full phrase ‘Jazakallah Khayra’. 

There are three basic reasons for this: Continue reading

None has any right to misguide!

While attending a contact class during my B.Ed. degree course, I remember one Professor saying, “A teacher has the right to teach. He has the right not to teach. But never has he any right to misguide.”

He was very true. And he was not of Muslim faith! May Allah have mercy on him.

You must be wondering why am I saying this here, and now?  Continue reading
