How Ramadhaan fasts + 6 Shawwal fasts make fasting every day?

Eid-ul-Fitr marks the first day of Shawwal, the tenth month of the Islamic calendar.

Fasting six days of the month of Shawwal is mentioned in authentic ahadeeth.

Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: 

“Whosoever fasted in Ramadhaan and then followed up with six fasting days of Shawwal, it is like fasting every day.” (Muslim) Continue reading

Making the Most of Ramadhaan

As Ramadhaan is round the corner, you may come across lots of books/articles on internet about Fasting, Zakah etc.

Of all the books, I would rate this short and sweet write-up by one of the most prolific writers of modern times, late Ustadh Khurram Murad*, as No. 1 – the topmost book ever written on the subject ‘Making the Most of Ramadhaan’. 

I request all my readers to please take time to read this 34-page book well before the coming of the blessed month, Inshaa’Allah. Even if you have read this book before, no problem read it again as Reminder Benefits Muslims.  Continue reading

Allah is Al Qareeb, what more do you want?

As pointed out in the post Ramadhaan is Seeker’s Paradise Allah wants us to call upon Him more and more in the blessed month of Ramadhaan as the Doors of Paradise are open and He is ever-ready to bestow His infinite blessings. He has even reserved a Special and Exclusive Gate called Ar-Rayyaan to honour those who respond to His Call by observing fast in the month of Ramadhaan.

Even though the feeling that Allah is Near is more distinct in the month of Ramadhaan, the fact is that He is Near and closer to you than yourself not just in the month of Ramadhaan but also all through your life! Allah has conveyed this Good News to you through His glorious Messenger, Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam, through the medium of this noble ayah:

Why am I reading the Qur’an?

Reminder Benefits Believers!

YasSarNalQuR'aN

Dear sisters and brothers, Assalamu Alaikum.

Come Ramadhaan and you find the Mus’haf in the hands of countless Muslims worldwide. It is pertinent here to ask oneself:  ‘Why am I reading the Qur’an?’

Ustaadh Khurram Murad mentions Eight Points for approaching the Qur’an with the purity of intention. Please pause at the end of each point and ask yourself: ‘Why am I reading the Qur’an?’

The more you reflect, the closer you get!

Note: Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah. I am re-posting this with the intention to spread the word that Qur’an should be read with understanding. Baarakallahu Feekum.

YasSarNalQuR'aN

There are many “religious” books available in the spiritual supermarkets of the world. How many of them tell their readers or followers to ponder and reflect over their teachings?

Do you know that there are some wonderful religious books – so “wonderful” that you don’t need a brain to understand!

The Qur’an never makes its readers mentally-challenged! Alhamdulillaah.

The Qur’an is unique. It tells you to think. It makes you to think.

The MOST Read Book, the LEAST understood Book!

Please think over, O Muslim brothers and sisters!

Ramadhaan and Qur’an. Qur’an and Muslims. Muslims and Ramadhaan. A perfect combination and a classic equation, right?

Qur’an and understanding. Understanding and Muslims. Muslims and Qur’an. And what about this equation?

Ramadhaan: The Month of Jihad

We come across many Islamic scholars and websites discussing about Ramadhaan as the month of forgiveness, of tawbah, of Qur’an, of generosity, of patience etc. Seldom do we find people discussing Ramadhaan as the month of Jihad.

If you read the biography of Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-lahu-alaihi-wa-sallam, you will come to know very well that Ramadhaan has been the month of striving against evil. The Prophet sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam never found any excuse of Ramadhaan being the month of fasting and spiritual upliftment and thus delaying or postponing his mission of striving against evil.

Welcoming Shabaan

YasSarNalQuR'aN

Things become easy for a person if he/she is in a habit of doing something regularly, and in advance.

The one who practices charity on a regular basis finds it very easy to give out Zakah once in a year. 

The student who studies and prepares himself in a systematic way, finds it easy while sitting for the exams. 

Establishing Salah is not hard on those who are in the habit of offering nafl, that is extra/supererogatory prayers, regularly.

Islam appreciates this approach in order to make things easy FOR THE MAIN EVENT.
