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

Weeping for Allah

In the post on Fearing the Merciful, long back though, we tried to understand an important reason why we need to fear the One Who is Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

Weeping is human. People weep for different reasons. On various occasions. In different situations.

Do we weep for Allah?

When was the last time you wept thinking of Allah’s grandeur, recalling your sins?

Weeping for the fear of Allah is a sign of a living heart.  Continue reading

When will this mass slaughter stop?

At the outset, let me say that I do not intend to hurt or make fun of anyone. I am addressing this post to everyone’s reason and logic, and not to anyone’s emotions and sentiments. Thank you and Jazakallah Khayr.  

Al Qur’an is a Book whose first chapter begins in the name of Allah and the last chapter ends with seeking refuge in Allah. Between these two, flows life as such.

How fortunate are those Muslims who are able to read the Qur’an in an excellent manner. Also, how fortunate are those Muslims who are able to listen to the Qur’an being read in an excellent way.  Continue reading

Qiyam-ul-Layl – Taraweeh Prayer

Riyad-as-Saliheen, Book Eight – The Book of Virtues
Chapter 213 : The Excellence of Optional (Tarawih) Prayer during Ramadan [1187-1188 of 1896]

By Al-Imam Abu Zakariya Yahya bin Sharaf An-Nawawi Ad-Dimashqi

[1187] عن أَبي هريرة أنَّ رسول الله قَالَ : « مَنْ قَامَ رَمَضَانَ إيماناً وَاحْتِسَاباً غُفِرَ لَهُ مَا تَقَدَّمَ مِنْ ذَنْبِهِ » . متفقٌ عَلَيْهِِ . التراويح سنة ، وهي عشرون ركعةً أو أقل أو أكثر ، وعشر ركعات إذا خشع فيها ورتل القراءة ، أحسن من العشرين بلا خشوع ولا تدبر

1187. Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “He who observes optional prayer (Tarawih prayers) throughout Ramadan, out of sincerity of Faith and in the hope of earning reward will have his past sins pardoned.” Continue reading
