In times of difficulty …..Do not grieve, for Allah is with us!

As atrocities continue on the oppressed Gazans in particular and the hapless Palestinians in general, and while global Muslims make tons of du’aas beseeching Allah’s help, we need to have hope that things are not always as they seem.

Having said that, I would like you to recall the most inspiring advice our glorious Prophet, Sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam gave to his companion-in-hiding:

Nasrum Minallaahi Wa Fathun Qareeb

I believe – and it’s true – that Allah’s help is always there. To give an example: I was inactive in this blog for quite sometime but then Allah kept it active! More than a hundred hits the post on this inspiring ayah alone gets on a daily basis. Alhamdulillaah and Maa’shaa’Allah.

Without the help and grace from your Lord, you cannot do anything. Nor can you achieve anything!

نَصْرٌ مِّنَ اللَّـهِ وَفَتْحٌ قَرِيبٌ  is yet another most inspiring ayahs of the glorious Qur’an. Continue reading

The Ever Winning Business

Merchandise. Investment and Returns. Buying and Selling. Profit and Loss. Balance Sheet. Asset and Liability. Stocking Taking and Accountability. Audit and Auditor.

These terms go beyond the normal meaning of business, trade or commerce.

Islam is business with Allah. You invest your time, talents, wealth and your own life in His cause, and He gives you in return, an unfailing reward.

This ‘Business’ with Allah brings nothing but profit. Other than this, by Allah! every other endeavor of man is an exercise in futility

Wa Ma Tawfeeqee il-laah bil-laah

Dear brothers and sisters, Assalamu Alaikum.

In today’s society, success seems to have many “fathers”. Failure is an orphan. Nobody wants to own it!

You might have heard people bragging: ‘Your success is because of me!’ ‘You got promoted because of my recommendation!’ ‘Without me, you’ll be nowhere!’ ‘Your accomplishment is due to my favour!’ ‘No, it’s not because of him, its only because of me, you achieved success!’!!

A true Muslim understands the hollowness of such a bragging!  Continue reading

The world must follow Prophet Muhammad to achieve success and salvation!

Ever since the release of the latest dirty video on our Prophet (peace be upon him), I was thinking to write on the historical reason behind mockery and the hate campaign. The question why Islam and its Prophet is always under attack by some groups of people has just one word answer: Jealousy! Read on…..

The Jews and Christians were already informed by their respective Prophets – Prophet Moosa and Prophet Eesa (Moses and Jesus, Peace be upon them) – about the coming of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and the need to obey and follow him.

The Old Testament is old and outdated and the New Testament is no more new. Now, the world has to follow the Last and Final Testament, that is the Qur’an. This is the only way and there can’t be any other alternative to success. Arrogance and prejudice have be to shed and things must be seen clearly.  Continue reading

Beware of ‘this dangerous da’wah’!

Today I would like to discuss about a ‘da’wah’ that is down-rightly destructive and out-rightly misleading!

A ‘da’wah’ that is destined for the purpose of ditching you and me!

A targeted approach leading people to the perpetual failure! A betrayal of sorts!  Continue reading

Different outcome for different people

By Sayyid Qutb 

In the name of Allah, the Lord of Grace, the Most Merciful

Alif. Laam. Meem. These are the verses of the Wise Book, – A Guide and a Mercy to those who excel in doing good, attend regularly to prayers, give in charity and are indeed certain of the Hereafter. These are on (true) guidance from their Lord: and these are the one who will prosper…..
