Allah is Al Qareeb, what more do you want?

As pointed out in the post Ramadhaan is Seeker’s Paradise Allah wants us to call upon Him more and more in the blessed month of Ramadhaan as the Doors of Paradise are open and He is ever-ready to bestow His infinite blessings. He has even reserved a Special and Exclusive Gate called Ar-Rayyaan to honour those who respond to His Call by observing fast in the month of Ramadhaan.

Even though the feeling that Allah is Near is more distinct in the month of Ramadhaan, the fact is that He is Near and closer to you than yourself not just in the month of Ramadhaan but also all through your life! Allah has conveyed this Good News to you through His glorious Messenger, Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam, through the medium of this noble ayah:

What belongs to Allah?

Note to non-Muslim readers: Some mistake Allah to be “Muslim God” or God of Muslims. This is far from truth. Allah is the proper name of the One, True and the Only Lord of all mankind and all that exists in the heavens and the earth. He is my Creator and your Creator. He is unseen and has no images. Thank you.

Given the fact that everything belongs to Allah, this question might appear stupid or innocent.

Getting to understand something of everything that belongs to Allah will only lead one to appreciate the greatness of Allah. It will also increase your faith in your Creator.

So let’s explore what the Creator Himself says about what all belongs to Him, and Him alone.

Qur’anic Du’aa of Angels for the Believers :)

In Surah Ghaafir (also known as Surah al Mu’min) Allah mentions a beautiful du’aa of forgiveness by the Angels for all sincere Muslims.

These no ordinary angels make an amazing du’aa for no ordinary Muslims!

The angels making this du’aa are the Carriers of Allah’s Throne who always glorify and praise Him through Tasbeeh and Tahmeed. They are those who are closest to Allah and also those who are around Him.

These noble angels make du’aa for those Muslims who not only seek repentance but also sincerely follow the Straight Path.

Let us learn this beautiful du’aa, Inshaa’allah.

The Standing of ‘Arafah for Non-Pilgrims

I found this article relevant and very appreciative. So re-posting here.

The root Waw Qaaf and Faa in Arabic, commonly refers to standing as is used in Wuqoof ‘Arafaah i.e. The Standing on Mount ‘Arafah. It also carries the meaning of stopping or pausing. Whilst the former is unattainable for all those who did not make the pilgrimage this year, the latter is an altogether more attainable concept.  Continue reading

Bestowing and withholding: The prerogative of Allah alone!

Among the prescribed Azkaar which we say everyday at the end of each obligatory Salah, this is a beautiful supplication (du’aa). It is concise and comprehensive.

Belief in Tawheed is eloquently expressed in a finest manner through this du’aa, which includes the Tahleel and Tahmeed. This du’aa also signifies a Believer’s Tawakkul in His Lord, Most Gracious.

Let us first read the hadeeth which describes this du’aa and then with the help of Qur’aanic verses try to understand some elements which will enhance our belief in Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’aala, Inshaa’Allah.  Continue reading

Takbeer, Tahleel, Tahmeed and Tasbeeh

Right from the beginning of his mission as the Last and Final Messenger of Allah to mankind down to his last breath, Prophet Muhammad Sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam, has taught us hundreds of du’aas (supplications) and ways to remember and glorify Allah (adhkaar). Du’aas and Adhkaar that are simple, yet splendid! Mind-boggling, yet insightful! Lucid, yet marvelous!  Precise, yet comprehensive! Humble, yet piercing!  We have no choice but to marvel at this glorious Prophet’s humility and worship towards his Creator. Continue reading
