Manhood: The wish of Umar ibn al Khattab!

بسم الله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله

The global Muslim Ummah is not lacking in wealth and human resource. There is enough and abundance in terms of wealth, natural resources and population.

What is missing is courage and manliness. Today Muslim Ummah is in dire need of the men of steel, men of determination, men of resolve. The quest is for the manhood of the nation!! 

Presenting here a beautiful write-up on the importance and the need for manhood within the Muslim Community.  Continue reading

Ramadhaan Mubaarak :)

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuhu.

When the mega month of Ramadhaan rises in a Muslim’s life, he compliments himself on this singular good fortune and becomes agog with excitement. He has been given a golden opportunity to refine himself through fasting and through the spiritual nourishment of the glorious Qur’an. The whole community rises to the occasion and greets the month which brings in its wake innumerable possibilities and privileges. 

In this splendid scenario, this Post is dedicated to all brothers & sisters in Islam, alhamdulillah.

While I wish you a Happy Ramadhaan, I pray to Allah to shower His choicest Blessings upon you and your family in this blessed month, and all throughout the year. May Allah give us the Tawfeeq to put things into practice and may He accept all our sincere efforts and worship. Aameen.

Here are some beneficial reads to get inspired, InshaaAllah….. Continue reading

What is al Baaqiyaat-us-Salihaat ?

When someone you are deeply attached to departs, you feel sad, lonely, and dejected. 

When Ramadhaan leaves us, we feel abandoned. 

When you have to wind up your Umrah/Hajj journey and you know that this is your last sight of Ka’bah, your spiritual heart bleeds.

The absence of permanence in different facets of our life is the common factor for all our heartbreaks. Continue reading

Laghw and the jihad of Imperialism!

PS:  Part 1 and Part 2

Making Sound, Distracting Attention, Silencing opponents, Dominating the world!

This precisely is the Jihad of imperialism.

But then how it is related to laghw? Continue reading

From Gallery To Football Court!

The latest French magazine issue must be taken as an opportunity to learn and proceed with new energy. We need to move from being reactive to being proactive adopting positive approach for the cause of Islam.

Islam being the way of life produced, directed, chosen, approved, inspired and powered by Allah, none in the world has any potency to extinguish His Light. None!

The whole humanity with all resources put together cannot simply wipe out the religion of Islam. One can mock at the Prophet. One can slander Muslims and defame their religion. One can draw cartoons and prove his bankruptcy of civilized behavior. Stupid absurdities cannot harm even a hair of the Prophet, peace be upon him.

Barking dogs seldom bite. But then the need of the hour is to save the fabric of humanity from the possible bites left by some ferocious beasts.

In times of difficulty …..Do not grieve, for Allah is with us!

As atrocities continue on the oppressed Gazans in particular and the hapless Palestinians in general, and while global Muslims make tons of du’aas beseeching Allah’s help, we need to have hope that things are not always as they seem.

Having said that, I would like you to recall the most inspiring advice our glorious Prophet, Sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam gave to his companion-in-hiding:

Helping Oppressed Muslims

What is our stance concerning the slaughter of Muslims in Palestine and other parts of the world that is happening right now, where houses are being destroyed, farms are being wrecked, children are being killed, the wounded are being detained in the streets, houses are being bombarded and people are being prevented by the Jews and others, from buying the food and drink that they need?

What can I, as a Muslim, do?

Ramadhaan: The Month of Jihad

We come across many Islamic scholars and websites discussing about Ramadhaan as the month of forgiveness, of tawbah, of Qur’an, of generosity, of patience etc. Seldom do we find people discussing Ramadhaan as the month of Jihad.

If you read the biography of Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-lahu-alaihi-wa-sallam, you will come to know very well that Ramadhaan has been the month of striving against evil. The Prophet sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam never found any excuse of Ramadhaan being the month of fasting and spiritual upliftment and thus delaying or postponing his mission of striving against evil.

Nasrum Minallaahi Wa Fathun Qareeb

I believe – and it’s true – that Allah’s help is always there. To give an example: I was inactive in this blog for quite sometime but then Allah kept it active! More than a hundred hits the post on this inspiring ayah alone gets on a daily basis. Alhamdulillaah and Maa’shaa’Allah.

Without the help and grace from your Lord, you cannot do anything. Nor can you achieve anything!

نَصْرٌ مِّنَ اللَّـهِ وَفَتْحٌ قَرِيبٌ  is yet another most inspiring ayahs of the glorious Qur’an. Continue reading

The Ever Winning Business

Merchandise. Investment and Returns. Buying and Selling. Profit and Loss. Balance Sheet. Asset and Liability. Stocking Taking and Accountability. Audit and Auditor.

These terms go beyond the normal meaning of business, trade or commerce.

Islam is business with Allah. You invest your time, talents, wealth and your own life in His cause, and He gives you in return, an unfailing reward.

This ‘Business’ with Allah brings nothing but profit. Other than this, by Allah! every other endeavor of man is an exercise in futility

Endurance leads to success!

After a gap of about two months, I am continuing, alhamdulillaah, with the series on Yaaa Ayyuhal Lazeena Aamanu. 

Today’s discussion is on Ayah No. 200 of Surah Aali ‘Imran, the last ayah of this Surah.

This one short ayah is the sum and substance of Islam. It sums up all the obligations laid upon the Muslim Ummah by Shariah. This ayah is quintessential to all Muslims – Muslim individuals, Muslims as a Community and Islamic State.

Allah commands the Believers to adopt the most vital elements of Imaan, Islam and Ihsaan in their life.   Continue reading

Istiqaamah is the key!

Giving brief answers to difficult questions is the hallmark of wisdom.

You might have heard people narrating their bitter experiences of they seeking some naseeha (advice) from such and such Imaam or an ‘Aalim, and having regretted later for seeking advice from such a boring person!

Some of us even stop going to the masjid should we encounter some lecturing ‘naseeha’ from an uninspiring Muslim.

The glorious Prophet Muhammad, sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam, is ‘uswatun hasana’‘the best role model’ for all Muslims.  Continue reading

‘Word of Allah is Supreme’

While arguing with people, among friends or colleagues, man always wants to prove his own point and keep his opinion high: “My speech is the best”, ‘My viewpoint is correct’, ‘I have got good command over language’, ‘I am superior, so my word must be supreme!’

But when it comes to the choice and living an Islamic life, for a Muslim the Word of Allah is supreme. It is not because he is a Muslim and out of ‘that’ affinity he ‘wants’ the word of Allah to be supreme but because the Word of Allah by itself is so deserving to be supreme, and by all means it is rightly so!  Continue reading

Indian Muslim Organisations Condemn Israel!

Israel is a shameless entity in the world. They are the Zalimoon, the worst kind of oppressors, and raising one’s voice against oppression and injustice is enjoined by the Muslim Ummah. Remaining silent when aggression is ruling the roost, is a greater sin. We need to speak out. The greatest Jihad is to say ‘the word of Truth in front of an oppressive ruler’ declared the glorious Prophet, Muhammad (sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam).

Representatives of all major Indian Muslim Organisations have issued a strong statement condemning the recent Israeli aggression.  Continue reading

Shari’ah: No water, no life!

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

Shariah is to Islamic life as water is to human existence. In fact, Shariah is a path that leads to a water hole. Water, the very source of life.

About Shariah, I found these two presentations by Dr. Muhammad Yunus, of Islamic Circle of North America, to be very informative and wanted to share it with you all. Continue reading
