“Rely on Allah, and Do Not Give Up…”

بسم الله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله

When Prophet Muhammad (sal…) said: “Strive for what benefits you…” he was encouraging us to hasten in seizing the positive opportunities that come our way.

When he added: “… and rely on Allah…”, he was showing us that we should draw upon our faith in order to strengthen ourselves in our efforts.

This is why the Prophet (sal…) did not stop there. He continued by saying: “… and do not give up.” Continue reading

Saviours of Islamic Spirit

This work of historical importance by the eminent Islamic scholar of the 20th Century (late) Sheikh Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi has not become as popular as it should have been. Unfortunate also is the news that the publication of this significant work by the original publisher has been stopped!!

The series written in four volumes under the title Saviours of Islamic Spirit is of immense value to a student of Islamic history and civilization. Muslims, especially those of Asian origin, will find an oceanic depth of information about their past. Continue reading

A Day in the Life of Muhammad

Sal-lal-laahu ‘Alaihi wa Sallam, May Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him.

I read and re-read this book. Not satisfied, again read and re-read. Every time I read, the message came out live, relevant and refreshing. And how could it not be so when it is about the noble life and splendid life-style of Allah’s Messenger, Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam.

The title of the book is amazing: A Day in the life of Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam. The eminent author, Sheikh Abdul al Wahhab al Turayri, has presented the events in such a lucid manner, that you will never feel like keeping the book aside without having read it from first page down to the last.

All Praise belongs to Allah who has guided us unto this. Had it not been for His guidance, we would not have been rightly guided. Wal’laahil Azeem!

Proceed to download this e-book, Inshaa’Allah.

If you ignore this Warning, you will be among the Liars!!

From E-mails to Facebook to WhatsApp. The craze continues.

Somebody sends a message to someone. He reads it. Whether he understands the message or not, he simply forwards it to you. You get the message. At times you read it and at times you don’t get time to read. Still you forward it to others. And the cycle continues….

Reason? If you forward the message, you will get so many good deeds – hasanaat!

What a discovery!!

The hadeeth I am going to present today should serve as a Warning from the Messenger of Allah to this 21st century man. And woman!

Farewell Address

Everyone, except the war-mongers, want peace to prevail in the society. 

Presenting “The Prescription” for attaining Peace at all levels: Peace with oneself, Peace with one’s environment and Peace with one’s Creator. 

YasSarNalQuR'aN

In his Farewell Address of surgical precision, Prophet Muhammad – the Benefactor of Humanity, peace be upon him, laid down the International Charter of Human Rights while presenting Islam in a nutshell.

This Address provides guidance to the followers of Islam so that they can lead a righteous life on their sojourn at Planet Earth.

The content of this Farewell Speech also calls upon the people at the helm of affairs, including the men at the United Nations Organisation, to reflect upon and imbibe its teachings in the charter of human rights.

Imbibe and act upon. The world needs peace, enough of talking!!

Eight Solid Reasons How Muslim Ummah is Blessed!

We need to think in a different way as to why the world is not comfortable with Islam, and why Muslims are normally being targeted, insulted and ridiculed.

Jealousy; fear, apprehension and insecure feeling that Islam will become a dominant force in the world – these are some reasons why Islam is being made to hate in the world today.

Muslims being the Blessed Nation, is the principal reason why Islam and Muslims, down the ages, happen to be always at the receiving end.

In this post, as the title says, we will try to find out the reasons as to how Muslim Ummah is the Blessed Nation, a distinction conferred by none other than the Lord of the worlds Himself, Who Alone has the prerogative right to bestow honour and dignity on whomsoever He wills.

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.

Making the Most of Ramadhaan

وَذَكِّرْ فَإِنَّ الذِّكْرَىٰ تَنفَعُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ
“And remind, for indeed, the reminder benefits the Believers”.
(Surah Az-Zaariyaat)

YasSarNalQuR'aN

As Ramadhaan is round the corner, you may come across lots of books/articles on internet etc. discussing about fasting, zakah and all.

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 top most 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, still this is worth-reading again.

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.
