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

Ramadhaan Mubaarak :)

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuhu.

When the mega month of Ramadhaan rises in a Muslim’s life, he compliments himself on this singular good fortune and becomes agog with excitement. He has been given a golden opportunity to refine himself through fasting and through the spiritual nourishment of the glorious Qur’an. The whole community rises to the occasion and greets the month which brings in its wake innumerable possibilities and privileges. 

In this splendid scenario, this Post is dedicated to all brothers & sisters in Islam, alhamdulillah.

While I wish you a Happy Ramadhaan, I pray to Allah to shower His choicest Blessings upon you and your family in this blessed month, and all throughout the year. May Allah give us the Tawfeeq to put things into practice and may He accept all our sincere efforts and worship. Aameen.

Here are some beneficial reads to get inspired, InshaaAllah….. Continue reading

What is al Baaqiyaat-us-Salihaat ?

When someone you are deeply attached to departs, you feel sad, lonely, and dejected. 

When Ramadhaan leaves us, we feel abandoned. 

When you have to wind up your Umrah/Hajj journey and you know that this is your last sight of Ka’bah, your spiritual heart bleeds.

The absence of permanence in different facets of our life is the common factor for all our heartbreaks. Continue reading

Sadaqah and Zakah in Ramadhaan

Ramadhaan is one month that is full of righteous action from the stand point of a true Muslim.

We fast in this month. We offer voluntary prayers in addition to five obligatory ones, we read more of Qur’an and try to understand it, some of us prefer to go on Umrah, we sacrifice our sleep to offer Qiyamul Layl, we become so ardent and eager to seek forgiveness of our sins in this blessed month. We give more in sadaqah in this month.  Continue reading

The hallmark of true Believers: Excellence in charity!

The next ayah that starts with Yaaa Ayyuhal Lazeena Aamanu in Surah al Baqarah is ayah No. 267.

Islam’s unique feature is evident in this command: Do unto others what you would like others to do with you.

Excellence is the hallmark of Islam. It is so amazingly evident from Islam’s approach to the very concept of Sadaqah: ‘spending in the way of Allah’. Continue reading

For the end to be good, the means should also be good!

The next ayah addressing Muslims through the kindly address Yaaa Ayyuhal Lazeena Aamanu is also related to spending in the way of Allah but with a similitude that makes a thinking Muslim sit up and take stock of his/her  charitable deeds. This is Ayah No. 264 of Surah al Baqarah.

Islam doesn’t approve the slogan ‘Ends justify the means’!  Continue reading

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
