  1. He is the son of "Al-Mugueerah bin Al-Waleed" the richest man in Mecca and the most famous and well renown poet during that time. Khalid was a tall man with a well built body. He was a knight and a warrior. Many people had mistaken him for "Umar bin Al-Khattab" for such close physical resemblance. Khalid embraced Islam just 3 years before the death of prophet Mohammad (saw). One day, the prophet (saw) had asked Khalid's brother "Al-Mugueerah" who was a Muslim: "Where is Khalid? he shouldn't be ignorant about Islam since he knows better!" Al-Mugueerah sent a letter to Khalid informing him what
  2. There is NO life except in the hereafter. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: "He who loves his worldly life will harm his Hereafter. And he who loves his Hereafter will harm his worldly life. Give preference then, to that which is eternal (The Hereafter) over that which is temporary". (Ahmed) He also said: "Wise is he who controls his desires & prepares for the life which starts after death, and wretched is he who makes himself a slave to his desires and has false expectations of Allah". (Tirmidhi) The Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, "O Allah! There
  3. Halal Diet and Pregnancy We are what we eat. Today we complain our children are disobedient towards us, but why the surprise? If we feed our children haram (even while in the womb) then the thoughts that will be bred in their minds (later in life) will be haram. Understand well, halal foods breed halal thoughts and halal actions whilst haram food breeds haram thoughts and haram actions. Shaykh Ashraf Ali Thanwi narrates, ‘If before birth of the child, parents were to reform themselves and adopt piety, then there is no reason why the child born too should not be pious. The actions of pa
  4. “[And it will be said], ‘Indeed, this is for you a reward, and your effort has been appreciated.’” (Qur’an, 76:22) Failure can take a toll on a person: that feeling of trying and trying, over and over, yet somehow never getting where you want to be. Or sometimes the task just seems too huge to achieve; is there even any use? We touched upon this a little when discussing thinking well of Allah and tawakkul. But this aspect involves knowing that nothing ever goes to waste. In the verse above, Allah subhanahu wa ta`ala tells us our sa’y (effort) is appreciated; it is recognized. That is w
  5. Are You Ready to Leave? Have you ever lain awake at night and thought about the day of your death? Were you scared? Did you quickly start to think about ways to cheat death? Maybe get an oxygen tent or inject yourself with hormones? Or carry on with your day to day business trying not to think about it and that it will just never happen? Even then, your brain will still decay. Hormones will not stop your body from slowly moving towards its' end, and there will never be immortality for any of us in this world. There is no way to cheat death and no sorrow or joy will last bu
  6. Leave a Trace. Many people pass by in this life and then move away and became among the bygones. Among those, the footprints of some have completely disappeared and if you try to follow them, you would find nothing. This is because they did not walk on a definite path, for they had neither purpose nor aim. However, the footprints of others are still prominent and their trails brilliant, appealing to the beholders. Although they have passed away, their good mention remains. That is because they insisted on leaving a mark. "Every human being has an existence and a legacy (to leave); a
  7. Marriage advice from a muslim mum Asma Radiallahu anha said to her daughter at the time of her marriage: "You are going to spend such a life where you shall have to live long and you are going to the bed of such a person who you have no acquaintance. You are going to love one with whom you had no love before. Make for him such a world, which will be heaven for you, prepare for him such a bed, which will be a pillar for you. Be such a slave for him that he may become your slave. Don't go willingly to him, lest you become to him an object of hatred. Don't remain far from him, lest he
  8. Tips for a Happier Muslim Marriage By Muntaqima Abdur-Rashid (30: 21). Quran wrote: Sura 30 - Ar-Room [The Romans, The Byzantines] Verse 21-21: 21. وَمِنْ آيَاتِهِ أَنْ خَلَقَ لَكُمْ مِنْ أَنْفُسِكُمْ أَزْوَاجًا لِتَسْكُنُوا إِلَيْهَا وَجَعَلَ بَيْنَكُمْ مَوَدَّةً وَرَحْمَةً إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لآيَاتٍ لِقَوْمٍ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ Quran translation wrote: Sura 30 - Ar-Room [The Romans, The Byzantines] Verse 21-21: 21. And among His Signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that ye may dwell in tranquillity with th
  9. Amending the wife The household is a huge institution which contains many sub-institutions, like the institution of upbringing, the institution of supplies and food, the institution of social relations, and the institution of entertainment. The wife heads all of these institutions. It is of no significance to try to amend the household without amending the wife, and to amend the wife is to amend the entire household. In confirmation of that, Allaah The Almighty Says (what means) relating about Zakariyya (Zechariah) : {And amended for him his wife.} [Quran 21:90] In his commentary on thi

  11. Bismillah. Once, a visitor was being shown around a leper colony in India. The colony was built to provide a shelter for those people who were poor and had various physical disabilities. At noon a gong (a metal disk that produces a sound when hit with a hammer) sounded to gather the inhabitants for the midday meal. People came from all parts of the compound to the dining hall. Suddenly, everyone started laughing at seeing two young men, one riding on the other's back, pretending to be a horse and a rider. They were having lots of fun. As the visitor watched, he was told that the man who ca
  12. Bismillah. A young man, a student in one of the universities, was one day taking a walk with a Professor, who was commonly called the student's friend, from his kindness to those who waited on his instructions. As they went along,they saw lying in the path a pair of old shoes, which they supposed to belong to a poor man who was employed in a field close by,and who had nearly finished his day's work. The student turned to the professor, saying: "Let us play the man a trick: we will hide his shoes, and conceal ourselves behind those bushes, and wait to see his perplexity when he cann
  13. Bismillah. Sincerity and Significance of Intentions and all Actions, Apparent and Hidden Allah, the Exalted, says: "And they were commanded not, but that they should worship Allah, and worship none but Him Alone (abstaining from ascribing partners to Him), and perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat) and give Zakat, and that is the right religion.'' (98:5) "It is neither their meat nor their blood that reaches Allah, but it is piety from you that reaches Him.'' (22:37) "Say (O Muhammad (PBUH) ): Whether you hide what is in your breasts or reveal it, Allah knows it". (3:29) 1. Narrated
  14. What Is The Purpose Of Life ? They say that a fool lives to eat and a wise man eats to live. But then the question remains: for what purpose does the wise man live? Living is not an end by itself. There has to be a purpose for man to live for. So what is this purpose? Where from? Where to? And Why? Any ignorance, however great, could be forgiven except for man to be ignorant about the secret of his existence, his aim in life and what will be his outcome after death. Some thinkers express these questions in simple words: where from? Where to? And why? Meaning: where did I come from?
  15. WAS CHRIST CRUCIFIED ? JESUS (PBUH) SAID, "THE DAY THAT I DIE", not "THE DAY THAT I DIED" It is mentioned in Surah Maryam, Chapter 19 verse 33 "So Peace is on me the day I was born, the day that I die and the Day that I shall be raised up to life (again)". [Al-Qur'ân 19:33] The Qur'ân mentions that Jesus (pbuh) said "Peace is on me the Day I was born, the day that I die". "It is not stated the day that I died". It is in the future tense and not in the past tense. JESUS (PBUH) WAS RAISED UP ALIVE The Qur'ân further says in Surah Nisa, Chapter 4 verse 157-158: "That they said (in b
  16. The True Religion Which is the True Religion of God? Each person is born in a circumstance which is not of his own choosing. The religion of his family or the ideology of the state is thrust upon him from the very beginning of his existence in this world. By the time he reaches his teens, he is usually fully brain-washed into believing that the beliefs of his particular society are the correct beliefs that everyone should have. However, when some people mature and are exposed to other belief-systems, they begin to question the validity of their own beliefs. The seekers of truth o
  17. DIFFERENCES BETWEEN QURAN & BIBLE Bible For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he RESTED, and was REFRESHED. [Exo. 31:17] QURAN We created the heavens and the earth and all between them in six days, nor did any sense of weariness touch us. [50:38] Bible In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth.. and then created the light of day and darkness of night, and then the plants, and finally he created the sun and the moon. [Genes. 1:1-31] QURAN Do not the unbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were joined togeth
  18. The man was a teacher. He taught the Law of Moses. He was impressed to see Jesus answering the questions of hypocrites and heretics with wisdom: “One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, ‘Of all the commandments, which is the most important?’” He felt it was his opportunity to ask Jesus, the Great Teacher, what was the most important commandment, how he can be saved, enter life and the Kingdom of God. Now, we need to shed all our biases, everything we have been taught in Sunday schools, and all the
  19. A Hadith of Rasul (SAW) says that, “Whosoever knows himself knows his Lord.” “Man 'arafa nafsahu faqad 'arafa Rabbahu” This particular Hadith is highly focused, qualified for achieving and realizing closeness to Allah (S). What is meant by the idea of “knowing oneself” to achieve a close relationship with our Creator? What are the various entities of ourselves and the requirements of knowing oneself? On examination of the Hadith, it communicates the design, way or method of knowing oneself through the understanding of knowing Allah. Allah makes it clear in Surah 50 Al Qaf, Ver
  20. O! Doers of good deeds giving birth to sincerity in your deeds can never be a wasted effort.
  21. The person who cannot educate his own soul, then how is he going to educate others.
  22. Bismillah. 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 the rich, u
  23. Bismillah. Haqeeqat by Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel Saheb (rahmatullah alayh) Were we to analyse the eras when Muslims throughout the world were dominant, then we will find that they had the haqeeqat (reality) of Islam in their lives; they were living Islam – happily, willingly and enthusiastically. They understood their purpose in this world. They understood that they had higher and nobler objectives to aspire for, because they looked beyond this life. Before them was their return to their Creator, to Allah Ta’ala; before them was Aakhirah (the Hereafter); b
  24. ORBITS AND THE ROTATING UNIVERSE One of the most important reasons for the great equilibrium in the universe is the fact that celestial bodies follow specific paths. Stars, planets and satellites all rotate around their own axes and also rotate together with the system of which they are a part. The universe functions within a finely-tuned order, just like the wheels in a factory. There are more than 100 billion galaxies in the visible universe and each small galaxy contains approximately a billion stars. Furthermore, each big galaxy contains more than a trillion. 16 Many of these stars
  25. BISMILLAH. THE COMING OF THE UNIVERSE INTO EXISTENCE: Until the mid-20th century, the prevalent view across the world was that the universe was infinite, had existed forever and that it will continue to do so for all time. According to this view, known as the "static universe model," the universe had no end or beginning. In maintaining that the universe is a collection of fixed, static and unchanging substances, this view has constituted the basis of materialist philosophy and has consequently rejected the existence of a Creator. However, as science and technology progressed duri
