Happy New Islamic Year 1439 :)

بسم الله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله

Islamic Year and Hijrah are inseparable twins.

Similarly, a Muslim and Hijrah are inseparable.

Two hadeeths stand out distinctly when it comes to Islamic Year, Hijrah and Muslims.

These two great sayings of the glorious Messenger of Allah – Prophet Muhammad, sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam – in fact set the agenda for the New Year.

Nay, they set the agenda for every every New Month. Every New Week. Every New Day. Every New Moment!

If you care about your Islam, you will value them in your life.

So happy New Year to you, and to every moment of your life.  Continue reading

You think Muslims are terrorists and their religion promotes terrorism? How misguided!

Today let me hurl or dash the truth against falsehood. And woe to you for what you utter!!  Continue reading

The Muslim and the Hijrah of All Times

بسم الله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله

Whenever Allah gives us an opportunity to witness the New Year, we must always try to go back to our roots and understand what it is means to be a Muslim, and what is the relevance of hijrah in our life.

So the simple question is: Who is a Muslim?

And What is the hijrah for the modern day Muslim?

Suffice is to quote a relevant hadeeth here: Continue reading

Saluting the Ashab As-Suffah: ‘Uqbah ibn Aamir al-Juhani

“Tell My Servants”, to do this and this, and I shall admit them into “My Paradise”!

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.

Dear brothers and sisters, Assalamu Alaikum.

Most of you would have experienced that every year when the month of Rabi al Awwal arises in our life, e-mails start pouring in with arguments and counter-arguments on Prophet’s birthday. Islamic blogs and websites come up with hundreds of articles and posts on the topic Mawlid/Meelad-un-Nabi.

I feel that the most important historical incident that took place in the life history of our glorious Messenger – Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, is seldom discussed in this month!

I am a Muslim, alhamdulillah! Is my pocket also a Muslim?

Zakah and Ramadhaan are seen as twins. In Ramadhaan, we not only fast but we also give Zakah, alhamdulillah. Even though it is a not a rule that the Zakah be given only in this month, we give Zakah in Ramadhaan because of amassing greater rewards in this blessed month. We have to give Zakah anyway, so why not give in a Month which is Full of Blessings Unlimited?

Interesting point to note is that both Zakah and Sawm (Fasting) were made obligatory in the same year, the Second Year of Hijrah.

On the occasion of Islamic New Year….

Come Islamic New Year, we find Muslims discussing, arguing and even hurling abuses at one another. Reason?

Is it right to say ‘Happy New Year’ or not!

Smart Muslims cite fatwas arguing it is not allowed to say Happy New Year. Fine, accepted. Continue reading
