The Du’aa of Laylatul Qadr

Laylatul Qadr nights have come to embrace us …. alhamdulillaah 🙂

PS: Tonight (Friday) is the Fourth Odd (27th) Night in places where Ramadhaan commenced on 6th June.

Qur’an motivates its readers to reflect upon its verses.

In fact reflection is one of the purposes of the Qur’an.

Let us reflect over the encouraged du’aa of Laylatul Qadr along with some related  aayaat (verses) of the glorious Book of Allah, Inshaaallah.  Continue reading

“O Allah! Bless Us in What You’ve Given…”

Allahumma Baarik Lana Feema A’tayt is a beautiful du’aa indeed.

It means ‘O Allah! Bless Us in What You’ve Given Us’. 

We need to know why we need Allah’s Blessings in what we have with us.

I read this beautiful explanation of the phrase وَبَارِكْ لِي فِيمَا أَعْطَيْتَ – Wa Baarik lee feema A’tayt“Bless me in what You have given…” by Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen, and shared with my readers last Ramadhaan. Re-posting this insightful content as it is worth sharing again. Continue reading

Here are some special things that we especially need to do in addition to our normal day’s Islamic activity such as offering five time prayers, reciting the glorious Qur’an etc.

According to authentic hadeeth ‘Hajj is Arafah’. Therefore, the Day of Arafah is of great importance and significance. We need to at least take care of the following things on the Day of Arafah, Inshaa’Allah:  Continue reading

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:

Be of the ‘few’, not of the ‘most’!

Found this interesting, so thought of sharing it…..

When Umar ibn al-Khattab radi allahu `anhu (may Allah be pleased with him) was walking in the market, he passed by a man who was supplicating, “O Allah, make us of Your ‘few’ servants! O Allah make us of Your ‘few’ servants!”. اللهم اجعلني من عبادك القليل

“Our Lord! Do not make us a test”

YasSarNalQuR'aN

We Muslims are taught two beautiful du’aas in the Quran in relation to the Kuffar and the evil-doing people. In the present global scenario, I feel this du’aa MUST become a definite part of our daily supplications. As the du’aa is of utmost importance, the need to understand the deeper meaning of this du’aa is even more greater.

Qur’anic Du’aa of Angels for the Believers :)

In Surah Ghaafir (also known as Surah al Mu’min) Allah mentions a beautiful du’aa of forgiveness by the Angels for all sincere Muslims.

These no ordinary angels make an amazing du’aa for no ordinary Muslims!

The angels making this du’aa are the Carriers of Allah’s Throne who always glorify and praise Him through Tasbeeh and Tahmeed. They are those who are closest to Allah and also those who are around Him.

These noble angels make du’aa for those Muslims who not only seek repentance but also sincerely follow the Straight Path.

Let us learn this beautiful du’aa, Inshaa’allah.

Seeking Allah’s support in three special cases

While concluding this post on نصر من الله وفتح قريب I had an intention to compile the Qur’anic du’aas on seeking exclusive help and support from Allah but then Satan drifted me and I couldn’t make it that time. Today I am able to, alhamdulillaah.

We all know that the One who created us knows and understand us better. He is not only our Creator but He is also our Supporter and Helper.

When a sunnah is replaced by a bid’ah, isn’t it a terrible loss?

The Adhkaarأذكار or supplications after Tasleem is from the established Sunnah of Rasoolullaah sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam.

Tasleem, by the way, is to end the Salah by saying Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah, Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah.

If you are an Imaam (the one who leads prayers) you need to take time not only for yourself but also facilitate things to those who are being led by you in the congregational Salah.

What the world is doing with Israeli atrocities in Gaza?

Ongoing Israeli Airstrikes Kill 14 In Gaza, Death Toll 121 reports Countercurrents.

Israel bomb hits disabled centre in Gaza says Al Jazeera

Israel targets Gaza mosque as death toll passes 120 reports The Hindu.

News – and Muslim News – such as the above do not matter!

Watching World Cup is more important than voicing concern for human life.

Who cares whether a Muslim is burnt alive or a mosque is destroyed in Gaza!

What the International community and Human Rights organisations are doing?

Where are the people who designed the slogan ‘War on terror’? Sleeping? or Pretending to sleep?

Stop hypocrisy and be a man. Be a human being.

Stop double-standards and show that you care. By stopping the aggressors!!

Seeking Light, Spreading Luminosity

The glorious Qur’an directs every human being to seek Light from the Source of Light as Almighty Allah alone can bring out a person from darknesses to Light. So man must understand that he to whom his Creator grants not light, for him there is no light!

Through the “Light Verse” of the Qur’an we understand the importance and significance of Light and Knowledge.

True believers in Islam are those who follow the Light that was sent down with Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam.  Continue reading

When Tears Speak Louder Than Words!

Here is some relevant news report from Mount Arafah by Arab News, Saudi Arabia’s popular newspaper:  

A white sea of faithful surged from Mina to Arafat as dawn broke on the second day of the five-day event. Waves of men in seamless white robes and veiled women in long dresses joined voices in a crescendo chanting Labbaik Allahumma Labbaik (O God, here I am answering your call).  

The pilgrims were completely lost to their surroundings in a fervor of religious enthusiasm. Many had tears streaming down their cheeks while others raised their faces to the sky, beseeching Allah for forgiveness and mercy.  Continue reading

Weeping for Allah

In the post on Fearing the Merciful, long back though, we tried to understand an important reason why we need to fear the One Who is Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

Weeping is human. People weep for different reasons. On various occasions. In different situations.

Do we weep for Allah?

When was the last time you wept thinking of Allah’s grandeur, recalling your sins?

Weeping for the fear of Allah is a sign of a living heart.  Continue reading
