When All Helplines Fail

“We have medicines, we have food, we have relief materials but the question is how to reach people when there is no communication?”

This was the biggest challenge faced by the rescue operators in the wake up of the unprecedented frenzy and fury lashed out by the horrific Chennai floods.  Continue reading

Find Allah among them…!

While reading the glorious Qur’an, it is interesting to take a dive in the literary ocean to come out with some pearls of inimitable nature.

For example, the phrase ومنهم/ و منهم (and among them/among them) always attracts my attention. It is a simple construction but then it is the inimitable style that makes the Qur’an a miracle in human language.

It is amazing to reflect over as reflection is a part of ibaadah or worship and glorification of Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’aala.

I would like to present one such collection here. Hope you will enjoy reading as much as I enjoy.  Continue reading

Summer, Sun, Shadow and……Submission!

Living in UAE in hot summer is extremely uncomfortable. It is only a blessing of Allah that people are able to withstand and are happily continuing with their fasts despite heatwaves, alhamdulillah.

Well, I would like to share with you a lesson-rich experience which I encountered today.

While walking to the masjid for Zuhr prayer, I was looking for shadows of the buildings around to walk under the shade to protect myself from the scorching sun. After offering sunnah prayers, I started continuing with my Tilawah. After reciting only a few verses I came across this ayah which spoke about the same very thing I was doing just before coming to the masjid: find shadows to protect you! Subhanallaah!  Continue reading

Welcome to the Grand Opening

A Muslim logs in to the Qur’an by using the prophetic password Ta’woodh and Tasmiah* and enters the amazing World of Spiritual Bliss through its Grand Opening, Al Fatihah.  He knows very well that he must begin every act of his in the name of Allah and that anything which is begun not in Allah’s name is deprived of all blessings.

Beginning in the name of Allah, a Muslim submits to the fact that all praise can only belong to the Rabb, the Lord whose Mercy engulfs all beings. Such a Lord is the Creator, Nourisher, Cherisher, Protector and Controller of not only this world but a million other worlds.  Continue reading

Fruit journey!

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

Reading, understanding and pondering over the relevant verses of the Qur’an takes one on a picturesque observational journey of the lush green nature.

Gardens, plants, vegetation, trees, soil, sky, water, air, sunshine, clouds, flower, leaves, branches, roots, fruits, seedlings, grains, crops – you mention anything about nature and environment, and you will find it in the Qur’an!

And the greatest of all mentions is the connection between the creation and the Creator. How ironic and sad indeed it is that many people in the world enjoy observing nature but forgot the Creator behind all enjoyments! Continue reading

Man’s relationship with his Lord

Who is our Creator, the Almighty Lord, and what is our relationship with Him?

Many a philosopher, since time immemorial, tried to find an answer to this question. They have written tones of volumes only to come out with crippled theories and cranky theologies!   In today’s world of spiritual supermarket, the leaders of man-made religions, themselves spiritually-bankrupt, successfully groom their followers into a more spiritually-challenged lot!
