None has any right to misguide!

While attending a contact class during my B.Ed. degree course, I remember one Professor saying, “A teacher has the right to teach. He has the right not to teach. But never has he any right to misguide.”

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.

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
