The Hadeeth often quoted on the occasion of Arafah is in fact the sum and substance of what Islam is all about.

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

Dhikr, Dhikra, Tadhkira.

Qur’an is ذكر Dhikr. Qur’an is الذِّكْرَىٰ Dhikra. Qur’an is تذكرة Tadhkira as well.

Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam, the one who presented the Qur’an to the world, is مذكّر Mudhakkir. One of the purposes of the Qur’an is to make people يتذكرون ‘Yatadhak’karoon’.

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!!

When a sunnah is replaced by a bid’ah, isn’t it a terrible loss?

The Adhkaarأذكار or supplications after Tasleem is from the established Sunnah of Rasoolullaah sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam.

Tasleem, by the way, is to end the Salah by saying Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah, Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah.

If you are an Imaam (the one who leads prayers) you need to take time not only for yourself but also facilitate things to those who are being led by you in the congregational Salah.

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.

Legacy of the Prophet

An excellent treatise on the “Legacy of the Prophet sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam” based on his advice to Abdullah ibn Abbas (radhiyallaahu anhu) by Hafiz ibn Rajab al Hanbali.

Rich explanation of a very popular hadeeth:

“Safeguard Allah and He will safeguard you. Safeguard Allah and you will find Him in front of you. Know Allah in times of ease and He will know you in times of hardship. When you ask, ask Allah. When you seek aid, turn to Allah. The Pen has dried (after having written) all that will occur………..”
