An effort in f a c i l i t a t i o n

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

Experience Grace. Or Face Humiliation!

Can there be any voyager sailing in two boats at one and the same time?

Imagine yourself keeping one leg in one boat and the other leg in another boat, and trying to sail. Think what will happen to you?

You will fall down, harm yourself, and consequently drown yourself!

Satan wants the true Muslims to do precisely this with regard to putting Islam into practice!  Continue reading

Terrorism and Islam are poles apart!

There has been some really sad and bad things happening in the world in the past few weeks. The Earthquake first in Iran and then in China. The Boston bombing. And the recent report on the rape of a five-year old in the Indian capital. These happenings cause concern to every sane and sensitive person.

Character assassination of the global Muslim community is also a matter of deep concern.

As Muslims we do join with all civilized human beings in condemning the bombings wherever they happen: Be it Boston or Palestine. Whether perpetrated by individuals or state-sponsored terrorism!  Continue reading

The effects of ungratefulness!

Dear brothers and sisters, Assalamu Alaikum.

After reading this and this news, some sadness loomed over me thinking if the first news was true, then it is definitely a bad news for the Ummah as a whole. The parable in Surah Al Nahl struck my mind.

This one ayah is sufficient for every sincere Muslim to understand the significance of being grateful to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala, and at the same time know the side effects of being ungrateful to one’s Sustainer!  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.
