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.

Israa wal Me’raaj

Dear brothers/sisters, Assalamu Alaikum.

Every year in the month of Rajab we find Muslims around the world talking, discussing etc. about this unique incident that took place in the glorious life of Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam. It has become a common ‘belief’ among us that this fascinating episode took place in the month of Rajab while the fact is otherwise!

I was reluctant to have this re-posted for the fear of becoming one among those who “follow the crowd”. But then I gave second thought and reconsidered to go ahead with the sole intention to educate and convey the truth of the matter.

Two articles are given here, one is in pdf form, which gives a thorough analysis on different aspects of al Israa wa Me’raaj and the other one is a short article, a fatwa, on whether to celebrate the occasion or not. Continue reading

Hijrah: The least discussed topic in Rabi al Awwal!

Dear brothers and sisters, Assalamu Alaikum.

Most of you would have experienced that every year when the month of Rabi al Awwal arises in our life, e-mails start pouring in with arguments and counter-arguments on Prophet’s birthday. Islamic blogs and websites come up with hundreds of articles and posts on the topic Mawlid/Meelad-un-Nabi.

I feel that the most important historical incident that took place in the life history of our glorious Messenger – Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, is seldom discussed in this month!
