PS: As March 15 will witness a solar eclipse in some parts of the world, thought of reminding specific readers about Islamic perspectives on Eclipse. Baarakallaahu feekum.
لا حَوْلَ وَلا قُوَّةَ إِلا بِالله Laa Hawla Wa Laa Quwwata Il-la Bil-laah is one of the powerful statements proclaimed by the believers in Islam.
According to the glorious Prophet, Muhammad, peace be upon him, it is “one of the treasures of Paradise”.
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’.
So, at the outset, what is the meaning of Dhikr, Dhikra and Tadhkira?

Dear brothers and sisters, as Muslims we are obligated to know the Islamic perspective on this natural phenomenon even as we are encouraged to perform Salatul Kusoof, Prayer of the Eclipse.

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.
Dear brothers and sisters, Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah.

The interest and involvement one finds in staying and working online cannot be found when you work offline. For when you are online, you are connected to, served by or available through a system.
Connecting with one’s heart is to be online with Allah.
Even though the terms online and hotline were not specifically used in 7th century as they are used and understood now in the computer-savvy 21st century but the fact remains that the Qur’an recognized its importance 14 centuries ago! Continue reading

Through blog statistics I find that the Reflections on ‘Hasbunallahu Wa Ni’mal Wakeel’ is the most sought after post, alhamdulillah.

Today (1st Muharram 1434), I would like to discuss on this very popular statement: Ni’mal Maula Wa Ni’man Naseer! This statement is generally said immediately after yet another most inspiring statement: Hasbunallahu Wa Ni’mal Wakeel!
Hasbunallahu Wa Ni’mal Wakeel, Ni’mal Maula Wa Ni’man Naseer!
These two phrases/statements are mentioned separately in different Surahs in the Qur’an. The meaning and the context of these two statements are so striking that we notice many among Muslims uttering and proclaiming them together. While it is not ‘a must’ to say them together, yet the miraculous beauty of the Qur’anic words weaves a tapestry in the canvas of one’s mind! Subhanallah! Continue reading
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
