For a long time I have wanted to discuss some etiquettes about reading Islamic literature and listening to speeches delivered by scholars. We should read and listen with the intention of benefiting from their writings and their speeches. Whatever our intention is, that is what we will get from it. If we read and…Continue
large number of feudal in backward areas had married their daughters to the Quran. The ceremony takes place after the girl of the family is asked to take a bath, after which a Qur’an is put before her as the men folk apologize to her for the ritual which would condemn the girl never to get married but to…Continue
The declaration that “There is no God Worthy of being worshipped except Allah & that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah”, demands that the Muslim accepts the Decrees set by Allah and by His Messenger-Muhammad (p.b.u.h.)
Islam is a Revelation from Allah with a complete code of life. It tells what is good and what is evil: Allah says…Continue
Of all major religions of the world, we see Islam at the very center stage of raging debates and discussions all around the globe, particularly within the geographic confines of United States of America. When we see this in a much broader perspective of 9/11 tragedy, pieces of the puzzle seem to settle into their respective spaces. What’s not so good about all this, however, is the fact that majority of U.S citizens are quite far…Continue
Not everything that comes through TV is bad. However, because the average child between two and 11 years old watches over 27 hours of poorly supervised television per week; because the only thing that kids do more than watch television is sleep, and because most parents are unaware of the indecent liberties that television takes with our children,…Continue
A little boy asked his mother, “Why are you crying?”
“Because I need to” she said.
“I don’t understand,” he said.
His mother just hugged him and said, “And you never will.”
Later the little boy asked his father, “Why does mother seem to cry for no reason?”
A boy said to his father: “I saw a girl and I want to marry… her. She is so beautiful and she has gorgeous eyes. The father answered his son: of course son, let’s ask for her hand in marriage.”
When the father saw the girl, he admired her beauty and he told his son: “You don’t deserve this girl, she needs someone who…Continue

The Prophet (p.b.u.h.) said, “A Muslim who is killed in a battle is a martyr, (dying in) plague is martyrdom, a woman who dies while delivering a baby is a martyr.” (Ahmad, Daarimee, Tiyaalisee, authenticated by Al-Albaanee)…Continue
The exceptional characteristics some people display are quite dumbfounding really, particularly when you put yourself in their shoes. This story published in today’s Saudi Gazette is one such.
Unfortunately, the Gazette didn’t publish it online, but one…Continue
“That is the grace of Allah which He bestows on whom He pleases. And Allah is the Owner of Great Bounty.” (Quran: 57:21)
1. Perfecting one’s ablution
It is not the quantity, but the quality of time spent attempting to follow the guidance of ALLAH that ensures success. ALLAH says in Qur’an that “everything is a sign Ð for those who reflect.” Each day, if we just take 10 minutes of quiet, quality time in carefully selected thought procedures, we can improve…Continue
It is an undeniable truth that a proper education is a key to the Islamization and revival of the present culture and civilization of Muslims.

You fake those emotions, you fake those virtues,
Peep into your heart, there lie all your trues!
That sin which you committed, how grave was it!
That momentary repentance u think is enough to chase it?
Those wrongs you keep doing to the insignificant people,

We all love gifts. We love the blessings that beautify our lives. We love our children, our spouses, our parents, our friends. We love our youth and we love our health. We love our homes, our cars, our money, our beauty. But what happens when a gift becomes more than just a gift? What happens when a want becomes a need, a…Continue
Morning, noon, evening and night…
This has been for years my plight!
The days seem so short, so boring,
I long for the day that has no ending!
The day hotter than the hottest summer,
Each moment millions longing for a prayer..
When there would be no adhaan, no path to the masjid,
There would be…
To some, a Monet is only a collection of dots. To others, it is a perfect masterpiece. To some, Islam is nothing but a code of rules and regulations. But, to those who understand, it is a perfect vision of life.

Man has taken many journeys throughout time. But there is one journey that nobody has ever taken-except one.
On a vehicle no man has ever ridden, through a path no soul has ever seen. To a place no creation has ever before set foot. It was the journey of one man to meet the Divine. It was the journey of…Continue
