Understand, Live by, Inspire

Redirecting and Reinforcing ‘If’al Ma Tu’mar’ to Oneself

Reflecting on an ayah is an ibadah of a highest kind.

Today as the world celebrates Eid al Adhaa, I would like to discuss on an ayah that celebrates and commemorates the act and the spirit of sacrificing for the cause of Allah.

Reading the story is one thing. Drawing inspiration is another.  Continue reading

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

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
