Matters concerning Rizq and spending in the way of Allah

Alhamdulillah, this is the Eighth post in the series Yaaa Ayyuhal Lazeena Aamanu.

Today’s ayah is Ayah No. 254 which is also from Surah al Baqarah.

In this ayah, Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’aala not only motivates His Believers to “Spend of what We have provided for you” but also warns them of dire consequences if they refuse to act.

Infaaq fee Sabeelillah, that is “spending in the way of Allah” is an important concept in Islam. It is the proof of a Muslim’s goodness.  Continue reading

Adopting al-Birr, the right Righteousness! (Part 1)

Dear brothers and sisters, Assalamu Alaikum.

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem. Today I would like to throw some light – by way of tazkeer and naseeha to myself first – on the concept of righteousness in Islam.

Consider this.  You find me as the one having Qur’an blog, Seerah blog, teaching Islamic…blah, blah, posting on Qur’an and Hadeeth….but if I don’t practice what I say, can I be called a righteous Muslim?! Continue reading

Fearing the Merciful

Dear sisters and brothers, Assalamu Alaikum. Bismillah….

Inna lil-laahi wa inna ilaihi raaji’oon. Certainly we are for Allah, and we return back to Allah.

Happiness vanished. You become sad especially when someone so close to you is no more. Continue reading
