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

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
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:
Here is a collection of the verses of the glorious Qur’an in which Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’aala directs His last and final Messenger, Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam, to tell to His servants about Himself and His expectations so that His believing servants execute His commands in order to win His Paradise.
Some useful links and e-books on Ramadhaan ……alhamdulillaah.
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
Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu.

لا حَوْلَ وَلا قُوَّةَ إِلا بِالله Laa Hawla Wa Laa Quwwata Il-la Bil-laah is one of the powerful statements proclaimed by the believers in Islam.
According to the glorious Prophet, Muhammad, peace be upon him, it is “one of the treasures of Paradise”.
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.

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.
