  1. Congratulations & glad tidings to those who have given up bad habits for the Sake of the Almighty & rekindled their link with Him.
  2. Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times. “Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times if one remembers to turn on the light.” If we give it some thought we may notice that a single speck of light can make the darkest of places a well lit environment in less than a second. This is a great example of what happiness is to dark times that we may be experiencing in our lives. During the darkest moments; in times in which we feel we will never feel better, like times that we may experience the loss of a job, or the loss of a loved one, we have to keep our faith in the notion
  3. A blessing or punishment? Sometimes a sickness, disease, etc. comes in the form of a blessing and sometimes in the form of azaab (punishment). For a mu’min, it is a blessing and mercy if it causes him to turn towards Allah. I will give an example with an incident that took place few years ago. I went to visit a person who was suffering from cancer. On entering his room, I found him surrounded by 3 TV sets- one to his right, one to his left and one in front of him. This was, indeed very surprising… a sick person in extreme pain who could well be in his last moments, in such a situation. On
  4. What am I going to do? Why is my life so messed up? Why can’t I find happiness? Why am I alone? Why do I feel stuck? Why do I have these problems?’… These questions only have meaning if we direct them to Allah. No one else can answer them. Consider the words of the Prophet Ya’qub (alayhis-salam, peace be upon him) when his son Yusuf (as) was secretly thrown into a well by his brothers. They then reported to their father that Yusuf had been killed by a wolf. And he turned away from them and said, “Oh, my sorrow over Yusuf,” and his eyes became white from grief, and he fell into silent melanch
  5. A man should stand up for his wife when his family is wrong & remember that she gave up everything to be with him. Too often we allow our family members to trample over our wives leaving them in tears, helpless & even suicidal. The worst is when we forget that she is a human being just like we are & begin to trample over her ourselves. Where does she go? Who does she turn to besides the Almighty? He is watching, He will come to her rescue. Why can't each one strive to make life easy for the other instead of difficult? The world would be a better place. Gone are the days when a
  6. sin could be your weakness, but to force your dependants to sin with you is a heinous crime. A sin could be your weakness, but to be upset when your dependants choose not to sin with you is worse. To force others to please you & ignore what pleases the Almighty is lack of spirituality. Let's make mends.
  7. The heart & mind are connected in an amazing way. They are a very powerful gift of the Almighty through which He tests us. To lead a happy life & ensure success in the hereafter too, we should never allow either of these to be controlled by others no matter who they are. The only exception is revelation from the Almighty via His Messenger pbuh. Many have regretted allowing others access to their hearts & minds.
  8. Face each difficulty as an opportunity to greatness. Treat each difficulty and hardship as a calling from your lord to purify your soul and increase your ranks in the hereafter. The way you face and see each trial is half the battle. Realize that you cannot flee from trials, but you can pass all trials successfully with Allah's help. Know that each trial is an opportunity to get closer to Allah, for nothing in this world is more valuable than a moment spent in contemplation and worship of Allah. Oh Allah, give me eyes to see the benefits of each hardship, give me ears to only hear your mess
  9. Allah constantly guides us. Every time I stray, I remember that Allah's mercy is greater than His wrath. I also know that Allah guides us always especially when we start deviating from the straight path. I am very thankful for the constant blessings and reminders of the almighty. May He keep us on the straight path when we stray and may he forgive us when we err. The Qur'ân and Sunnah speak frequently and emphatically about the fact that a worshipper who repents and asks forgiveness for his sins will be forgiven and will not be asked about those sins again. In fact, Allah tells us that th
  10. Mufti Ismail Menk - Recognise the Greatness of Your Creator .
  11. “What am I going to do? Why is my life so messed up? Why can't I find happiness? Why am I alone? Why do I feel stuck? Why do I have these problems?" These questions only have meaning if we direct them to Allah. No one else can answer them. When we're out of ideas, surrounded by problems, and feeling totally alone; we are not alone. Allah is with us. If we pray sincerely and strive, He will put light in our hearts and help us from sources we did not expect. Ask Allah sincerely, open yourself to Him and accept what He gives you even when it goes against your own desires. The answers to your qu
  12. Allah is always there In your times of deep despair, Do you feel there is no hope? As the darkness closes in on you, Do you feel you cannot cope? As you struggle on through every trial, Do you say “When will it end?” As you cry yourself to sleep at night, Do you wish your spouse was there? When your body’s racked with aches and pains, Do you feel you are alone? When you think about the future, Do you fear the great unknown? There is someone who really cares, And He hears your every cry. His arms are reaching out to you, And on Him you can rely. When things close in around you, He sees
  13. All my relatives do that but in this month female only..thats what i wanted to know is this bidah? im fighting against this and now mufti sahib allows it... one needs to make their mind up bidah or no bidah?
  14. Avoid the Temptation by Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel Saheb (rahmatullah alayh) ‘I recall from my childhood days, someone saying :“...For temptation will lead you into trouble and make you cry.” - And indeed this is exactly what happens when one gives into the temptation to engage in any Haraam. …Ask those who have given into the demands of nafs and shaytaan, about the repercussions of their sins. …They will say: Trouble, trouble and more trouble. Tears, tears and more tears. Temptations will always be there. If there was no te
  15. The Wash Cycles for the Heart by Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel Saheb (rahmatullah alayh) Once, on viewing the Mataaf from one of the upper levels of Masjidul Haraam, the scene of thousands of people engaged in Tawaaf, brought to my mind the following analogy: The sight of those thousands of people moving around the Baitullah reminded me of the wash cycles of the washing machine. And indeed, we find that parallels can be drawn between the Tawaaf and the work of the washing machine. The purpose of the washing machine is to wash our c
  16. The silence of God Have you ever wondered why God is with us in the beginning, we walk with Him and feel His presence, but eventually we go in a period of drought, whereby our prayers are like crops with no rain. They don't seem to yield any results. Our seeking of Him continues, yet we seem to not be able to find Him. No matter our call, He is silent. He seems distant. We feel we are alone again in the battles of this life. But that's far from the truth. I'm sure you have wondered why silence. After all, now that we are walking in His path we need His constant guidance. We need the comfo
  17. Unknown call to muslimah This is a very nice story which will InshAllaah make you all aware on this matter, especially for young Muslims! After finishing Salatul ‘Ishaa, a Muslimah sat on her Salah mat to make Du’aa. Once after she finished making du'aa to her Lord, her mobile rang. She picked up saying : ”Assalamu 'alaykum Wa Wahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu.” A voice of a young man replied : ”Wa'alaikum Assalam Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakatuhu! Can I speak to (so and so) please?” The Muslim girl said: ”Sorry brother, you have dialed the wrong number”...Then she hung up. After few minutes, he
  18. Formula for Unlimited Blessings by Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel Saheb (rahmatullah alayh) The Story of Hazrat Halima Sa`diyya (Radiyallahu anha), the foster mother of Rasulullah (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi waSallam) is well-known. The custom of the Arabs who lived in the towns was to entrust their young children in the care of the Bedouin women, who earned a living by being wet nurses. For the town Arabs, this time afforded their children the healthy environment of the desert; facilitating good health, strength and an opportunity to master th
  19. The Spiritual Drip by Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel Saheb (rahmatullah alayh) In a Majlis of my Shaykh, Hazrat Maulana Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Saheb (Daamat Barakaatuhum), Hazrat requested one of his mureeds to recite a verse of his poetry. Each time, the verse was rendered, the person was told to read it again. This went on for one solid hour – that is, the repetition of the one verse; but the effect on the hearts was seen in the tears that were shed by those who were present. The verse, translated, is : “If you hide and commit sin
  20. How can success be achieved when the call to success is ignored? "Hayya alal Falaah!"
  21. We won't judge your closeness to the Almighty based on your dress but your choice of dress itself judges your own distance from the Almighty.
  22. A strong person is not the one who doesn't cry. A strong person is one who is quiet and sheds tears for a moment, and then picks up her sword and fights again..
  23. Those strange Muslims (Part I) Us Muslims are strange, but in a good way. We have so many little things taught to us by our Prophet (peace be upon him} which we try our best to implement in our daily lives. Obviously, most of these things are not very apparent to outsiders. However, sometimes you may come across a Muslim who is practicing his or her religion, but you find the act or behavior very strange. I'll mention a few things that we practice that might appear strange to Non-Muslims. One very important rule in Islam is that Muslims cannot shake hands with the opposite g
  24. There are many ways to Jannah… its our duty to know them so that we may choose the correct paths the way Allah wants us to follow… May Allah AlHayyul Kayyum guide all of us with His hidayah… 1. First and foremost.. stay away from shirk… we need to know what is shirk and how it leads us to shirk… so that we may be on-guard not to fall into this category.. knowingly or out of ignorance… since ignorance is the root to all evil.. thats why it is our duty to seek knowledge.. know the ahadith very well… thats why it is important for us to follow the sunnah of Rasulullah saws.. one who refuses to fo
