Understand, Live by, Inspire

So Deep, so Rich and brilliantly Meaningful!

The Word أحصى Ahsaa is to ‘count’, ‘compute’ ‘calculate’ or ‘enumerate’.

Allah is Al Qareeb, what more do you want?

As pointed out in the post Ramadhaan is Seeker’s Paradise Allah wants us to call upon Him more and more in the blessed month of Ramadhaan as the Doors of Paradise are open and He is ever-ready to bestow His infinite blessings. He has even reserved a Special and Exclusive Gate called Ar-Rayyaan to honour those who respond to His Call by observing fast in the month of Ramadhaan.

Even though the feeling that Allah is Near is more distinct in the month of Ramadhaan, the fact is that He is Near and closer to you than yourself not just in the month of Ramadhaan but also all through your life! Allah has conveyed this Good News to you through His glorious Messenger, Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam, through the medium of this noble ayah:

What belongs to Allah?

Note to non-Muslim readers: Some mistake Allah to be “Muslim God” or God of Muslims. This is far from truth. Allah is the proper name of the One, True and the Only Lord of all mankind and all that exists in the heavens and the earth. He is my Creator and your Creator. He is unseen and has no images. Thank you.

Given the fact that everything belongs to Allah, this question might appear stupid or innocent.

Getting to understand something of everything that belongs to Allah will only lead one to appreciate the greatness of Allah. It will also increase your faith in your Creator.

So let’s explore what the Creator Himself says about what all belongs to Him, and Him alone.

Calling on Allah through His Names

Making du’aa to Allah through His very own Names is an ibadaah in itself. A very sweet and enchanting experience.

This is a short three page model of some du’aas which one can use any time, and more so during the blessed month of Ramadhaan.

Do Not Despair of Allah’s Mercy!

Islam is all about positive thinking and action. Despair and pessimism have no place in Islam.

I would like to present two beautiful verses that inculcate positive thinking, kindling hope and killing despair. The love and affection the Creator has towards His noble creation is distinctly visible in these verses.  Continue reading

Virtues of Ayat Al Kursi

Ayat al Kursi is Ayah No. 255 of Surah al Baqarah, the Second chapter of the Holy Qur’an:

اللَّهُ لا إِلَهَ إِلا هُوَ الْحَيُّ الْقَيُّومُ لا تَأْخُذُهُ سِنَةٌ وَلا نَوْمٌ لَهُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الأرْضِ مَنْ ذَا الَّذِي يَشْفَعُ عِنْدَهُ إِلا بِإِذْنِهِ يَعْلَمُ مَا بَيْنَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَمَا خَلْفَهُمْ وَلا يُحِيطُونَ بِشَيْءٍ مِنْ عِلْمِهِ إِلا بِمَا شَاءَ وَسِعَ كُرْسِيُّهُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأرْضَ وَلا يَئُودُهُ حِفْظُهُمَا وَهُوَ الْعَلِيُّ الْعَظِيمُ٢٥٥

The Glorious Qur’an is the miracle revealed by Allah to His Messenger Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) in the language of his people, the Arabs, who were the masters of the Arabic language. It was a challenge for them to produce the like of the shortest surah or chapter of it. Being the masters of eloquence and rhetoric, they failed to produce anything like it.
