The paradox of Remembering Selfies and Forgetting the Self!

بسم الله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله

Self, selfie, selfie stick. Self-praise, self-promotion, self-consciousness!

Social media has transformed a sane man into a maniac of a sort.

People now take pride in showing and sharing their ‘status’ to others.

The growing madness in the age of selfie-sticks has made man a victim of narcissism.  Continue reading

The Likeness of Ramadhaan and Prophet Yusuf

This write-up, by the great scholar Ibn al-Jawzi, is very interesting. The author co-relates the Story of Yusuf and his 11 brothers with Ramadhaan and the other 11 months of the year.

“The month of Ramadan to the other months is like Yusuf to his brothers. So, just like Yusuf was the most beloved son to Ya’qub, Ramadan is likewise the most beloved month to Allah.  Continue reading

No Time Like Ramadan Time :)

بسم الله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله

Soon, once again, the blessed month of Ramadan will be with us; once again, like “golden hours on angel wings”, will descend upon us its blessed moments.

Like every other year since Hijrah, it will summon Muslims, as individuals and as a corporate body, to an intense and sustained life of Fasting and Prayer, of worship and obedience, of devotion and discipline — all centered on the Qur’an which, too, was sent down in these very moments in the custody of “noble and trustworthy” angels.

Call will go forth to every believer to take to prolonged companionship with the Book of God. To a life of redoubled endeavor to become what God desires Muslims to be. Ramadan bids our hearts and minds, our society and polity, to come to. Joyfully and dutifully the Muslims will respond. Continue reading
