The Muslim and the Hijrah of All Times

بسم الله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله

And What is the hijrah for the modern day Muslim?

Suffice is to quote a relevant hadeeth here: Continue reading

An Inspiring Story of All Times

PS: I wrote this post 4 years ago when this blog had not many followers/readers. Don’t know whether you have read this before. If yes, thank you so much and Jazakallah Khayr. If not, please read and share, InshaaAllah. And btw, this is one of my best write-ups, alhamdulillah,  and I am glad to say this. Baarakallaahu Feekum. 

‘Then He will not neglect us’.

Can you recall which blessed Muslim woman in history said this uniquely inspiring statement? If your answer was Hajar, then you guessed it right!

Do you know the background in which this exceptionally bold lady uttered this revolutionary statement – a statement which I feel has assumed the shape of a dew drop that is permanently embedded in the cheek of time! Continue reading

Jumu’ah Khutbah in UAE (26 DhulQa’dah 1433)

The topic for tomorrow’s (12th October 2012) Jumu’ah Khutbah in UAE masajid is:

‘The virtues of first Ten Days of Dhul Hijjah and Hajj’.

First sermon

Praise be to Allah, Who has prescribed Hajj so for His servants to witness benefits for themselves and mention the name of Allah, the All Knowing. I bear witness there is no deity except Allah, having no partners. I also certify that Muhammad is the Servant of Allah and His Apostle. Allah has preferred him over many others and selected him to be His Messenger. May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, his family, his companions, and all those who will follow them in righteousness till the Day of Judgment.  Continue reading

Dates in the Qur’an and the Sunnah

Those living in the Gulf states are indeed fortunate to have plenty of dates available throughout the year. As Ramadhaan and dates are seen as synonymous in many parts of the world,  I thought of re-posting this, by way of reminder, from my Seerah blog

The date fruit and tree were dear to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and the word “date” (and date-palm) is mentioned in the Holy Qur’an more than 20 times.  Continue reading

What the Prophet particularly read or emphasized?

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

There are certain Surahs or Ayahs of the Qur’an which, it is reported, the Prophet, blessings and peace be on him, used to recite more often in particular Prayers or on specific occasions, or which he especially extolled by describing their excellent merits and special rewards. You should know them.

The Hadith given below are not meant to prove the superiority of one part of the Qur’an over another. Nor should you ignore the rest of the Qur’an and occupy yourself in reading and memorizing these at the expense of the rest. These selections are useful only because one cannot memorize and read everything every day and because one usually needs to habituate oneself to the reading of a definite portion regularly. What could be better than to follow the Prophet, blessings and peace be on him, and hope for the rewards he has promised. (Note: pdf is available for download) Continue reading

‘Then He will not neglect us’.

Can you recall which blessed Muslim woman in history said this uniquely inspiring statement?

If your answer was Hajar, then you guessed it right!

Yes, Hajar said this – Hajar, the great mother of Prophet Ismail and the obedient wife of Prophet Ibrahim! (Peace be upon all of them)

Do you know the background in which this exceptionally bold lady uttered this revolutionary statement – a statement which I feel has assumed the shape of a dew drop that is permanently embedded in the cheek of time! Continue reading

About Qur’an and Sunnah

Note: This is an extremely important article to understand the nature of the Qur’an and Sunnah as the source of Islamic Legislation. Please read on….. Jazakallah Khayr.

The Noble Qur’an is Allah’s Word through which He expressed His commands and teachings. It is raised above any possible description. The Noble Qur’an was revealed to the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) and was accepted by the believers as being the essence of truth. Moreover, the believers maintain that it is the Word of Allah and not the words of any of His creatures. Thus, whosoever claims that it is the words of a human being becomes a disbeliever.
