Blessed Days, Blessed Souls

بسم الله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله

🙂 Alhamdulillaah, the blessed month of Dhul Hijjah has commenced 🙂

As per the official announcement in Saudi Arabia, UAE and adjoining places, today (12th Aug) is the First Day of Dhul Hijjah 1439. Accordingly, the Day of Arafah will fall on Monday, the 20th August, and Tuesday, 21st August, will be the first day of Eid al Adhaa. (Please check out for the local announcement done in your respective place as one has to go by the fatwa of one’s region)

Although there are mind-blowing resources already posted on this page, I wish to add the Dhul Hijjah Planner with just a few other related posts, by way of reminder and for the benefit of one and all, InShaaAllah. The focus, for me and you, should be on individual performance: to change the inner self. 

May Allah give us the Tawfeeque and Hidayah to live by the teachings of Qur’an and Hadeeth to the best of our ability.  Continue reading

Takbeer, Tahleel, Tahmeed and Tasbeeh

بسم الله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله

Right from the beginning of his mission as the Last and Final Messenger of Allah to mankind down to his last breath, Prophet Muhammad Sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam, has taught us hundreds of du’aas (supplications) and ways to remember and glorify Allah (adhkaar). Du’aas and Adhkaar that are simple, yet splendid! Mind-boggling, yet insightful! Lucid, yet marvelous!  Precise, yet comprehensive! Humble, yet piercing!  We have no choice but to marvel at this glorious Prophet’s humility and worship towards his Creator. Continue reading

Making the Best out of the 10 Blessed Days!

بسم الله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله

In the Quran, the Al-Mighty took an oath by two aspects of His creation, both being great in their stature, both being symbols of Allah, and both being signs to reflect on:

“By the dawn, and by the ten nights” (Surah al-Fajr, verse 1)

The dawn is truly a magnificent sign of Allah. It signifies the end of darkness and passing of the night, and heralds the beginning of a new day. It is a phenomenon that mankind recognises itself as having no control over, as Allah declared in the Qur’an:  Continue reading

The Timeless Message of Hajj

Hope this article serves as a timely reminder of the timelessness of Hajj, InshaaAllah.

Islamic terms are powerfully loaded with meanings and connotations. Translating them in English is like belittling their importance and import.

Hajj, when translated as ‘pilgrimage’ dilutes the very spirit of this great Islamic practice. Pilgrimage means ‘a journey of devotion’ which Hajj does include but then goes beyond it. Continue reading

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
