And it is His mercy and decree that He returns our souls to our bodies after having taken it during our sleep!

He tells us this spiritual-cum-scientific fact in Surah Az-Zumar of the glorious Qur’an: Continue reading

Qur’anic Style of Inculcating Effective Listening Skill

The general purpose of presenting human history in the Qur’an is to warn people not to repeat the mistakes of the perished nations.

Surah al Haqqaah begins with a vivid description of the destruction of the People of Saalih (Thamood), Huud (‘Aad), Musa (Phir’oun), Luut (Mu’tafikaat) and Nooh.

What comes after the historical narrative is a miracle in human language. A clarion call to heed to the message of the glorious Qur’an. A pointer towards effective listening! Continue reading

Farewell Address

Everyone, except the war-mongers, want peace to prevail in the society. 

Presenting “The Prescription” for attaining Peace at all levels: Peace with oneself, Peace with one’s environment and Peace with one’s Creator. 

YasSarNalQuR'aN

In his Farewell Address of surgical precision, Prophet Muhammad – the Benefactor of Humanity, peace be upon him, laid down the International Charter of Human Rights while presenting Islam in a nutshell.

This Address provides guidance to the followers of Islam so that they can lead a righteous life on their sojourn at Planet Earth.

The content of this Farewell Speech also calls upon the people at the helm of affairs, including the men at the United Nations Organisation, to reflect upon and imbibe its teachings in the charter of human rights.

Imbibe and act upon. The world needs peace, enough of talking!!

Attitude at sleep determines the altitude of life!

Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam was a man of perfect words. He used to speak in crystal clear terms. Whether it was a private interaction or a public speech, he was amazing in the choice of words. And how can it not be when he was blessed with the Jawami-ul Kalim, the comprehensive speech. The world has no choice but to agree that our glorious Prophet sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam was the man with words of surgical precision. Subhanallaah!

This not-so-popular-du’aa is comprehensive. It packs in it all elements of Islamic belief and practice: Tawheed, Risalah and Aakhirah apart from highlighting the aadaab and akhlaaq that a true Muslim must have.

Words spoken by a person reveals his personality. Read this hadeeth and make it a daily habit to supplicate with this du’aa while you go to sleep. For this du’aa determines one’s standard of living. And dying!  Continue reading

If you worship Allah, do this!

The next in the series Yaaa Ayyuhal Lazeena Aamanu is Ayah No.172 of Surah al Baqarah.

In this ayah, Allah commands the Believers to eat of good things of what He has provided and give thanks unto Him.

People may think that this ayah is very simple as it contains a command about eating and being grateful to the Provider, the Nourisher.

But the fact is that this command is not that simple. It is a serious command which contains a severe warning.  Continue reading
