  1. Shaykh (Maulana) Muhammed Qamaruzzaman Allahbadi (HA) Hazrat Maulana Qamruzzaman Illahabadi (DB) of India from Allahabad. He is connected through the Khalifa of Hakeemul Ummat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (RA), Hazrat Shah Wasiullah Sb. (R.A), of Allahabad. Maulana Muhammad Qamaruzzaman Allahabadi (DB) is one of the most reputed scholars, teachers and eminent spiritual mentors of Muslim India. The Maulana is held in high veneration by the entire Muslim India, African countries, Canada, Britain and America. Born in 1933, he received his primary and secondary education at Karisath of Mau district, U.P. (India), and pursued his higher Arabic and religious knowledge, endowing all his best capabilities for this noble goal. He was fortunate enough to attract a great Divine favor upon himself. It was his attachment with a very eminent man of spirituality, the late Maulana Shah Wasiullah Allahabadi, a very high profile Khalifa of Hazrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanawi. Thanks to his inner capabilities and a true thirst for spiritual perfection, the Maulana soon attracted great deal of Maulana Allahabadi's attention, so much so that he gave his daughter in his marriage in 1951. Then the Maulana completed his higher religious studies under the Shah's direct teachership. Maulana Muhammad Qamaruzzaman is devotedly engaged in the service of Islamic knowledge , social reform, Dawah and spiritual upbringing of the Ummah. Tens of thousands of Muslims are attached to him, seeking their spiritual upliftment. An excellent treatise on the diseases and of the heart and their rectification. http://www.central-mosque.com/index.php/Soul/purification-heart.html
  2. All Changes made apart from changing the verse to Qur'aan made Easy because the book actually has these convulated translations and weird spellings from Raiwind. One option is to change all translation to Mufti Taqi Usmani (HA) edition and we may do that in the future but until then left with the (print) book format. The grammatical errors and skipped words are also like that in the print edition but changed as they may reading easier. Jazakallahu Khayran
  3. Compiled by Shaykh Dr Seventy-Six (HA) Physician (MD,Internal medicine), Spiritual seeker, Antiquarian of Islamic manuscripts. Summarising the Problem: Dr Bruce Hubbard (PhD) Conceptualises the problem as follows: Worry? Worry is an anxious preoccupation with an anticipated negative event. Over the course of evolution, worry helped us adapt by directing awareness to true problems that once identified can be effectively addressed. In this way worry is effective in managing challenges of your everyday life. Unhealthy Worry? For some people, this process breaks down. Their minds become trapped in a endless process of “figuring it out.” They are plagued by thoughts and images of disastrous outcomes that in reality may never come to be. Worriers are particularly challenged by problems that have no clear solution. Instead of accepting and managing these difficult realities, they are viewed as evidence of the futility of even trying to work things out. Obsessive Thinking? Obsessive Thinking Unhealthy worry is part of a broader problem called obsessive thinking. Obsessive thinking is an inability to gain control over recurrent, distressing thoughts, images. These thoughts and images are embedded in a complex network of feelings, sensations, and at times, behavioral rituals and routines. Rumination? Obsessive worry is focused on future outcomes. Rumination, another form of obsessive thinking, is the uncontrollable preoccupation with the past. Rumination is experienced as guilt, regret and anger, over perceived mistakes, losses, slights, actions taken or not taken, opportunities forever lost, with irreversible, catastrophic results. And Islam says? Do you suffer from any of these or recognise someone who does? Modern Psychology proposes to address the thought pattern of such a patient but the Prophet of Allah (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) offers a different diagnosis summarised in the following beautiful Hadeeth: أَلاَ وَإِنَّ فِي الْجَسَدِ مُضْغَةً إِذَا صَلَحَتْ صَلَحَ الْجَسَدُ كُلُّهُ، وَإِذَا فَسَدَتْ فَسَدَ الْجَسَدُ كُلُّهُ‏.‏ أَلاَ وَهِيَ الْقَلْبُ Beware! There is a piece of flesh in the body if it becomes good (reformed) the whole body becomes good but if it gets spoilt the whole body gets spoilt and that is the heart. Join us on an epic journey to explore, decode and ultimately control your (obsessive, runaway) mind by focusing your heart! http://www.central-mosque.com/index.php/Soul/wuqoofqalbi.html
  4. Khala, Changed to: The Creator of the universe, Allah (SWT) remains committed that kingdom and His Khilafah[1] on earth are only meant for the true Muslims, (Mumineen i.e. those of perfect Imaan). This is clear from the following Ayah: Allah (SWT) has promised to those from amongst you who believe and do righteous deeds that He would surely make them His Caliph on earth [surah Al-Noor:55]. [1] Rule and soverigenity of Allah (SWT) What is wrong with this line? The Muslim youth of the new generation, which have been affected and influenced by the so-called modern trends or the Western way of life, take pleasure in laughing at the very ideals of Islam and openly criticize the sacred code of Shariah Rest corrected.

  7. Assignment 1: Muslim Degeneration & Its only Remedy We scan these books and then convert the images to text. Despite using the best of technologies errors often creep up for example a scanner has difficulty telling a I (small case i) from L (small case l) i.e Allah often looks like Aiiah to a scanner. Please read the book below and inform us of the errors in the thread which follows: http://www.central-mosque.com/index.php/Hadeeth/muslim-degeneration-its-only-remedy.html If you are not sure please report the problem because we can compare it to the original book and verify .
  8. Proof reading of the translation done by Maulana Yusuf Shabbir (HA), ready for distribution.
  9. Please don't copy/paste the article as it is being proof read and checked by others such as the son of Shaykh (Mufti) Shabbir Ahmed (HA) of Darul-uloom Bury. Simply read and point out any errors.
  10. Conclusions: 18 degrees should be adopted for Subh Sadiq (true dawn)i.e. commencement of fasting and Faj'r Salah. When 18 degrees is not present, Aqrabul Ayyam (nearest day), Aqrabul Bilaad (nearest city) or Nisf ul Lail (half of night) should be adopted. Using Sab’al Layl or 1/7th of the night is a manifest error.

  11. Asslamo Allaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, وَمِنۡ ءَايَـٰتِهِ ٱلَّيۡلُ وَٱلنَّهَارُ وَٱلشَّمۡسُ وَٱلۡقَمَرُ‌ۚ لَا تَسۡجُدُواْ لِلشَّمۡسِ وَلَا لِلۡقَمَرِ وَٱسۡجُدُواْ لِلَّهِ ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَهُنَّ إِن ڪُنتُمۡ إِيَّاهُ تَعۡبُدُونَ [41:37] Among His signs are the night and the day, and the sun and the moon.

  13. Research of Darul-uloom Bury about reciting loudly in Salah added to the article: http://www.central-mosque.com/index.php/Civil/eclipses.html
  14. Sorry Khala, Didn't know the rules BUT that is a problem because article and blogs get updated and reproducing them on a different site is not advised because then the copies get out of synch. In this example I just learned that he was also a Hafiz of Qur'aan which I didn't know when I posted the link. Do you see what I am saying?

  16. A to Z of Eclipses in Islam Background: This Friday (20th of March 2015) will see a Total Solar Eclipse in Svalbard (Norway) and the Faroe Islands, and a Partial Solar Eclipse in Europe, northern and eastern Asia and northern and western Africa. The eclipse starts at 07:41 UTC and ends at 11:50 UTC with the best time to view it around 08:30 UTC. We (as) Muslims are meant to view any phenomenon no matter how grand and spectacular from the eyes of Qur’aan and Sunnah. Media is constantly emphasizing the spectacular views to be displayed this week but we want to emphasize the CREATOR of the spectacle and the key lessons HE wants us to take from eclipses. Focus on the Creator & not the created! The sun and the moon are fantastic, magnificent creations which dazzle us from the time we first lift our gaze to the heavens. We are in awe of their majesty and gaze at them all our lives in astonishment and amazement. But the questions we should be asking are who created them and how magnificent HE must be? هُوَ ٱلَّذِى جَعَلَ ٱلشَّمۡسَ ضِيَآءً۬ وَٱلۡقَمَرَ نُورً۬ا وَقَدَّرَهُ ۥ مَنَازِلَ لِتَعۡلَمُواْ عَدَدَ ٱلسِّنِينَ وَٱلۡحِسَابَ‌ۚ مَا خَلَقَ ٱللَّهُ ذَٲلِكَ إِلَّا بِٱلۡحَقِّ‌ۚ يُفَصِّلُ ٱلۡأَيَـٰتِ لِقَوۡمٍ۬ يَعۡلَمُونَ [10:5] He is the One who has made the sun a glow, and the moon a light, and determined for it stages, so that you may learn the number of the years, and the calculation (of time). Allah has not created all this but for a rightful purpose. He elaborates the signs for a people who understand. The magnificence, majesty, grandeur actually belongs to the CREATOR! If His creation dazzles us and leaves us amazed all our lives than isn’t he truly who should be admired and worshipped? وَمِنۡ ءَايَـٰتِهِ ٱلَّيۡلُ وَٱلنَّهَارُ وَٱلشَّمۡسُ وَٱلۡقَمَرُ‌ۚ لَا تَسۡجُدُواْ لِلشَّمۡسِ وَلَا لِلۡقَمَرِ وَٱسۡجُدُواْ لِلَّهِ ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَهُنَّ إِن ڪُنتُمۡ إِيَّاهُ تَعۡبُدُونَ [41:37] Among His signs are the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. Do not prostrate yourselves to the sun, or to the moon. And prostrate yourselves to Allah who has created them, if it is Him whom you worship. Continue Reading central-mosque
  17. Virgin Mary: Muslims or Christians? Muslim women cover their head and dress modestly. Muslim women live a chaste live with sexual activity confined to marriage. Next time, take a look around at the imagery in your Church and think about who follows in the footsteps of Virgin Mary? Muslim women or Christian women? You may want to look into Islam & becoming Muslim. Read full article here http://www.central-mosque.com/index.php/Islam/virgin-mary.html

  23. http://www.central-mosque.com/index.php/Practises/weak-ahadeeth-a-fadhail-virtues.html In the present day climate it is often opined that the usage of Weak (Da’ef) Ahadeeth is forbidden in Islam and there is a genuine move amongst certain circles to purge the Hadeeth collection of Weak (Da’ef) narrations. Although the opinions and Fatawa of certain Scholars (of the past and present) can be presented in support of this position (of discouragement) towards the usage of Weak (Da’ef) Ahadeeth, nevertheless there exists an overwhelming majority of Islamic Scholars (from Salaf & Khalaf) who not only permitted its usage but their publications contained these (i.e. Weak Narrations) in abundance.
