Ramadhaan Mubaarak :)

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuhu.

When the mega month of Ramadhaan rises in a Muslim’s life, he compliments himself on this singular good fortune and becomes agog with excitement. He has been given a golden opportunity to refine himself through fasting and through the spiritual nourishment of the glorious Qur’an. The whole community rises to the occasion and greets the month which brings in its wake innumerable possibilities and privileges. 

In this splendid scenario, this Post is dedicated to all brothers & sisters in Islam, alhamdulillah.

While I wish you a Happy Ramadhaan, I pray to Allah to shower His choicest Blessings upon you and your family in this blessed month, and all throughout the year. May Allah give us the Tawfeeq to put things into practice and may He accept all our sincere efforts and worship. Aameen.

Here are some beneficial reads to get inspired, InshaaAllah….. Continue reading

Sadaqah and Zakah in Ramadhaan

Ramadhaan is one month that is full of righteous action from the stand point of a true Muslim.

We fast in this month. We offer voluntary prayers in addition to five obligatory ones, we read more of Qur’an and try to understand it, some of us prefer to go on Umrah, we sacrifice our sleep to offer Qiyamul Layl, we become so ardent and eager to seek forgiveness of our sins in this blessed month. We give more in sadaqah in this month.  Continue reading

For the end to be good, the means should also be good!

The next ayah addressing Muslims through the kindly address Yaaa Ayyuhal Lazeena Aamanu is also related to spending in the way of Allah but with a similitude that makes a thinking Muslim sit up and take stock of his/her  charitable deeds. This is Ayah No. 264 of Surah al Baqarah.

Islam doesn’t approve the slogan ‘Ends justify the means’!  Continue reading

Matters concerning Rizq and spending in the way of Allah

Alhamdulillah, this is the Eighth post in the series Yaaa Ayyuhal Lazeena Aamanu.

Today’s ayah is Ayah No. 254 which is also from Surah al Baqarah.

In this ayah, Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’aala not only motivates His Believers to “Spend of what We have provided for you” but also warns them of dire consequences if they refuse to act.

Infaaq fee Sabeelillah, that is “spending in the way of Allah” is an important concept in Islam. It is the proof of a Muslim’s goodness.  Continue reading

The Great Fives in Islam!

They say “Good things come in small packages”.  As far as Islam is concerned “Best, Good and Great things come in small packages”.

Presenting a collection of the authentic ahadeeth/references that highlight the significant and superb teachings of Islam.

Disclaimer: I have collected Fifteen Fives from an ocean of Islamic teachings with the intention of inspiring myself and my dear readers so that ‘These Fives become our Faves”.  I do not, however, attach any holiness to Number Five. Wallahu ‘Alam.  Continue reading

I am a Muslim, alhamdulillah! Is my pocket also a Muslim?

Zakah and Ramadhaan are seen as twins. In Ramadhaan, we not only fast but we also give Zakah, alhamdulillah. Even though it is a not a rule that the Zakah be given only in this month, we give Zakah in Ramadhaan because of amassing greater rewards in this blessed month. We have to give Zakah anyway, so why not give in a Month which is Full of Blessings Unlimited?

Interesting point to note is that both Zakah and Sawm (Fasting) were made obligatory in the same year, the Second Year of Hijrah.
