What belongs to Allah?

Note to non-Muslim readers: Some mistake Allah to be “Muslim God” or God of Muslims. This is far from truth.

Thank you.

Given the fact that everything belongs to Allah, this question might appear stupid or innocent.

Getting to understand something of everything that belongs to Allah will only lead one to appreciate the greatness of Allah. It will also increase your faith in your Creator.

Rain, Rain, Come Again!

For people who live in a desert, Rain is something which is unusual. And this once-in-a-blue-moon thing is happening in the United Arab Emirates!

Man, however, is an extremist by nature. When there is no rain, he yearns for it. And when it rains, he becomes restless and shows signs of ingratitude.

As a Muslim we need to know that our Prophet sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam not only sought rain but when it rained, he also enjoyed it as much as he could.  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

Sajdah Enhances Productivity

The Arabic word ‘Sajdah’, which is translated as ‘prostration’ comes from the root sa-ja-da which means ‘to throw oneself down’.When you prostrate before Allah, you literally throw yourself down.

Throwing oneself down is an amazing act of worship in Islam.

By throwing oneself down, a human being, in fact, elevates his/her status! Subhanallaah!

Man’s relationship with his Lord

Who is our Creator, the Almighty Lord, and what is our relationship with Him?

Many a philosopher, since time immemorial, tried to find an answer to this question.
