Making the Most of Ramadhaan

As Ramadhaan is round the corner, you may come across lots of books/articles on internet about Fasting, Zakah etc.

Of all the books, I would rate this short and sweet write-up by one of the most prolific writers of modern times, late Ustadh Khurram Murad*, as No. 1 – the topmost book ever written on the subject ‘Making the Most of Ramadhaan’. 

I request all my readers to please take time to read this 34-page book well before the coming of the blessed month, Inshaa’Allah. Even if you have read this book before, no problem read it again as Reminder Benefits Muslims.  Continue reading

“Most of them are independent career women — bankers, doctors, broadcasters — who know what they are doing, and often do so in the face of opposition from family and friends.”

Do not emulate the Jews!!

Note: This is the second post on the series Yaaa Ayyuhal Lazeena Aamanu, alhamdulillah.

In the first post I discussed the last verse first. That is, the ayah of Surah At-Tahreem discussed in the first post  is the last verse in the Qur’an as far as the verses commencing with Yaaa Ayyuhal Lazeena Aamanu is concerned.

Today I would like to discuss on Ayah No. 104 of Surah al Baqarah which is the first ayah in the Qur’an to commence with the phrase, “Yaaa Ayyuhal Lazeena Aamanu”.

In this ayah, Allah addresses the Believers asking them NOT TO emulate the Jews in their play on certain Arabic words when speaking to the Prophet Sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam.

Allah, therefore, forbade His believing servants from imitating the behavior and deeds of the disbelievers either in tongue or deed.   Continue reading
