An effort in f a c i l i t a t i o n

O Mankind…!

Dear non-believers in Islam,

May God’s Peace and Blessings be upon you.

Most of you ‘believe’ that Qur’an is for Muslims alone. No way! Qur’an is for all.

Well, this is not your mistake. My community is responsible for this general misunderstanding among non-Muslims worldwide.

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

From Gallery To Football Court!

The latest French magazine issue must be taken as an opportunity to learn and proceed with new energy. We need to move from being reactive to being proactive adopting positive approach for the cause of Islam.

Islam being the way of life produced, directed, chosen, approved, inspired and powered by Allah, none in the world has any potency to extinguish His Light. None!

The whole humanity with all resources put together cannot simply wipe out the religion of Islam. One can mock at the Prophet. One can slander Muslims and defame their religion. One can draw cartoons and prove his bankruptcy of civilized behavior. Stupid absurdities cannot harm even a hair of the Prophet, peace be upon him.

Barking dogs seldom bite. But then the need of the hour is to save the fabric of humanity from the possible bites left by some ferocious beasts.

The caring Prophet, and a community so unmoved!

Every Friday, for more than one thousand four hundred years, it has been the practice of thousands of Muslims the world over to recite the Surah al Kahf.

This Surah, like other suwar of the Qur’an, has in its fold an ocean depth of meanings that gives Muslims a purpose to live, a sense of direction.

Today I would like to highlight an important aspect about the personality of the glorious Prophet, Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam, which this amazing Surah brings into limelight.

This aspect of our Prophet’s personality is often ignored by most of the Muslims in the world. Those who talk a lot about the fiqhi or jurisprudential  aspects of religious matters seldom get time even to ponder over this aspect of the Messenger of Allah.

Hardly we find Muslims in the world today observing this sunnah. 

Even if we adopt one percent of what our Benefactor use to feel, we would be doing a great service to our own selves in our day to day life. And those who have dedicated their life – such fortunate ones are unfortunately less in the world – to care and share the treasure of Islam to humanity, are really worthy of being called true followers of Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam. May Allah make us one among those fortunate few. Aameen.

Well, what is that thing that was in the person of the Prophet which is badly lacking in most of us?  Continue reading

Amr bil Maroof wa Nahi ‘anil Munkar

Amr bil Maroof wa Nahi ‘anil Munkar is an important aspect of Islam.

It is in fact the rai·son d’être of the Muslim Ummah.

Either you do it and give meaning to your existence, or you don’t care about it and get lost!

What, then, is this Amr bil Maroof wa Nahi ‘anil Munkar?

Psychological Human Behaviour Faced by a Caller to Islam

Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem

Assalamu Alaikum. I found this article very interesting as it highlights the psychological human behaviour faced by the callers to Islam. The author, Sr. Sadaf Farooqi, discusses brilliantly in the light of the story of Prophet Musa (Peace be upon him) and the cruel king Fir’aoun. Read on…..

When one goes through the Qur’an the first few times, one wonders why it has so much repetition of apparently the same incidents, e.g. the punishments meted out to transgressing past nations, stories from the lives of Prophets, and descriptive reminders of the torments and rewards of the Hereafter.

The Quran also seems to repeatedly “comfort” Prophet Muhammad [صلى الله عليه و سلم] by recounting to him the difficulties bygone prophets faced from antagonists. This is perhaps to make it easier for him to cope with the enmity he faced from people after he started calling them towards the monotheistic Deen of Islam.  Continue reading

Ramadhaan and Dawah

In Arabic, da`wah (inviting people to Islam) is one of the most emphatic and important duties of Muslims. It is one of the greatest forms of worship, by which Muslims can draw nearer to Allah.

The month of Ramadan is an ideal opportunity for engaging in this noble activity, especially with our fellow Muslims. People’s hearts in Ramadan are humbler because they are more aware of Allah’s remembrance, more responsive to exhortation and more inclined to repentance. Continue reading
