The correlation between Ihram and Kafan

The happiness of celebrating Eid al Adhaa on Thursday took a 180 degree turn.

The heart breaking news of the stampede at Mina resulting in the death of 717 Hajj pilgrims and injuring 800+ changed the entire scenario.

Sorrow and sadness is prevailing among Muslims around the globe. Some are in shock, unable to hear the distressing news coming from Makkah. Continue reading

Matters concerning death!

‘I told him not to go there but he went. If he had heeded to my advice, he would have been alive now’.

‘If they had been with us, they would not have been killed’.

These are the talks of unbelievers, and it is kufr to talk like that.

As a Muslim we have to firmly believe that Allah is the Giver of Life (Al-Muh’yee) and the Causer of Death, Al Mumeet. That death happens at its appointed time and place, and no man has any business to meddle with the affairs of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’aala. The next ayah, dear brothers and sisters, with the lovely address Yaaa Ayyahul Lazeena Aamanu is about death and its reality.  Continue reading

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.

Adopting al-Birr, the right Righteousness! (Part 1)

Dear brothers and sisters, Assalamu Alaikum.

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem. Today I would like to throw some light – by way of tazkeer and naseeha to myself first – on the concept of righteousness in Islam.

Consider this.  You find me as the one having Qur’an blog, Seerah blog, teaching Islamic…blah, blah, posting on Qur’an and Hadeeth….but if I don’t practice what I say, can I be called a righteous Muslim?! Continue reading

That Which Takes Happiness Away!

6th November 2011. Eid al Adha. The day was spent happily.

Before going to bed, I was checking my inbox as usual. I found a mail from my friend announcing the death of Janab Kutubuddeen Ahmad Sahib.

Inna lil-laahi wa inna ilaihi raaji’oon. Certainly we are for Allah, and we return back to Allah.

Happiness vanished. You become sad especially when someone so close to you is no more. Continue reading
