  1. why hmm I've known of different opinions, some scholars can go under some conditions and others saying no, full stop..these are all together
  2. With respect to women visiting the cemetery, there are three famous opinions of the Fuqaha (jurists) and scholars. The first opinion is that it is generally permissible for women to visit the graveyard. This allowance is on account of the tradition of the Prophet (SA) in which he said, ‘I used to prohibit you from visiting the graveyard, but now you can visit it. (Musnad ahmad). Those scholars who allow this, state that the above tradition includes the permission for women also (to visit the cemetery) as it is for men. The great jurist Shamsul A’imma Saraks; has preferre
  3. What is riya and can you please advise how to fix it? Question on Nov,20 2017 riyashow Question: What is riyāʾ and can you please advise how to fix it? Answer: Bismillahi Taʿālā Assalāmu ʿalaykum waraḥmatullāhī wabrakātuh, Riyāʾ means “show off”. It is an illness of the heart which remains hidden, unless accountability is made of it.

  4.

  5. Merely possessing the knowledge of something is of little value if one does not apply it. This is an accepted principle. It is even worse if one becomes arrogant on account of this knowledge. The purpose of attending classes on the Seerah of Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ), for example, should be to adopt the inward and outward Sunnahs and to implement the lessons learned in our own lives. Sitting through lectures on the Shama’il and Hadith in general must result in the application of Sunnahs to ourselves. If this is not the case, we need to ask ourselves, what went wrong? How is it that I’ve spent

  7. Meraj Mohiuddin’s “Revelation: The Story of Muhammad ﷺ”: A Critical Review JULY 10, 2019 By Bilal Ali Ansari In the name of Allah, Most Merciful and Compassionate. Despite its relatively recent publication, Dr. Meraj Mohiuddin’s Revelation: The Story of Muhammad (Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him) has quickly become one of the more popular, publicized, and widely-distributed additions to the growing corpus of English literature on the prophetic biography (sīrah). Boasting an aesthetically-pleasing, simple, and modern design, Revelationenjoys a long list

  11. Summarized by Samah Syed from the ‘Gateways of Relief and Assistance’ webinar by Shaykh Tameem Ahmadi. It is in the nature of this worldly life that it will be filled with trials and tribulations for every individual, old or young, rich or poor. Allah Most High states in the Qur’an: “And whatever of misfortune befalls you, it is because of what your hands have earned” (Qur’an, 42:30) Thus, we should understand that any calamity that befalls us is often a consequence of our wrongdoings and ultimately this is a calling for us from Allah Most High to turn back to Him. Although we m

During this miracle, Rasūlullāh sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam travelled with his body and soul from Makkah Mukarramah to Baytul-Maqdis, and from there to the seven heavens and beyond and returned all in a split second. The first part of the journey, from Makkah Mukarramah t
  14. The Basis and Objective of Unity Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned: Allah Ta‘ala says in the Qur’aan Majeed: وَ اعۡتَصِمُوۡا بِحَبۡلِ اللّٰهِ جَمِیۡعًا وَّلاَ تَفَرَّقُوۡا Hold firmly to the rope of Allah all together and do not be divided. (Surah Aal-e-Imraan v. 103) The benefit of unity mentioned in this verse will not be acquired by merely bringing people together. Rather, the benefit of unity will be acquired through bringing people together and uniting them upon the rope of Allah (i.e. uniting them upon practising tr
