What is Islam

An-Nawawi on the Hajj and Umrah Pilgrimage

By Abu Amina Elias / 14 Sep 2013

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

An-Nawawi records in his book Riyad us-Saliheen:

Allah said:

فِيهِآيَاتٌبَيِّنَاتٌمَّقَامُإِبْرَاهِيمَوَمَندَخَلَهُكَانَآمِنًاوَلِلَّهِعَلَىالنَّاسِحِجُّالْبَيْتِمَنِاسْتَطَاعَإِلَيْهِسَبِيلًاوَمَنكَفَرَفَإِنَّاللَّهَغَنِيٌّعَنِالْعَالَمِينَ

 

All About Ihram

By Muhammad Fathi / 9 Sep 2013

After you have made the necessary preparations - paid your debts, repented, absolved yourself of any wrongdoing toward others, etc. - you are ready to take the first step in the blessed journey: ihram.

 

Tabarruk (Relics)

Source : Islamieducation.com / 31 Aug 2013

Tabarruk means blessed. In special terms, it means to obtain blessing from the pious. This is permissible, but there are some people who say to obtain blessing from the pious or their posessions is impermissible and the one who says it is permissible is leading the people into the way of shirk. We, the Ahl as-Sunna, say that tabarruk is proved from the Qur'an and Sunna and thus is permissible; to call it kufr and shirk is not acceptable.

 

Necessity of Loving Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم)

Source : Ahlus-sunna.com / 31 Aug 2013

In these present times, some people due to their misunderstanding consider the immense love for our beloved Prophet (صلىاللهعليهوآلهوسلم)  equivalent to shirk. In spite of the fact that lovers of Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) consider him to be an "Abd (Slave) of Allah" and they have no intentions of comparing the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) to Allah azza Wajjal (Naudhobillah), the comparison only comes due to ill thinking of opponents who look for ways just to accuse Muslims of Shirk and Kufr but what they forget is that their false takfir would return back upon themselves  rather than it being applicable on the accused. 

 

Repelling Evil with Good and Winning the Hearts of Enemies

By Abu Amina Elias / 31 Aug 2013

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Allah has praised those who respond to evil with good deeds.

Those who repel evil with good will find that their enemies will become their friends.

 

Virtues of fasting during Shawwal

Source : riffat73.wordpress.com / 24 Aug 2013

Shawwal means ‘lift or carry.’ Shawwal is the tenth month on the Lunar Islamic calendar. The first day of Shawwal is Eid Al-Fitr. There are also six days of fasting during Shawwal which, together with the Ramadan fasts, are equivalent to fasting “perpetually.”

The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “He who observed the fast of Ramadan and then followed it with six (fasts) of Shawwal. It would be as if he fasted perpetually.” (Muslim)

 

Recommendation to fast six days of Shawwal after Ramadan

By Abu Amina Elias / 16 Aug 2013

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

It is highly recommended to fast six days of the month of Shawwal after completing the fast of Ramadan.

 Abu Ayub Al-Ansari (may Allah be pleased with him) reported:

The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:

مَنْصَامَرَمَضَانَثُمَّأَتْبَعَهُسِتًّامِنْشَوَّالٍكَانَكَصِيَامِالدَّهْرِ

 

Ramadan teaches us patience and obedience to Allah the Almighty

Source : Qul.org.au / 2 Aug 2013

The month-long fast of the month of Ramadan is nearing end and the Eid day is a week away. Eid Al-Fitr is the most important festival in the Islamic calendar (Muslim holiday). The day does not mark any historical event or episode; but its existence provides the Muslim for an occasion to offer thanks to Allah for having given him the strength and the will to observe fast during Ramadan.

 

Voluntary Fasts

By C. Mofty / 1 Aug 2013

The first thing to understand is the difference between what is known as fard and what is known as nafl.  Fard is obligatory, it is what Allah requires us to do, and leaving it is a sin and we will be held accountable for it.  An example is two rakah of Fajr prayer and the fasts of Ramadan.

 

The Night of Power and its Virtues

The night of Power is one of the nights occurring in the month of Ramadan. On this night:

• The decrees of creation are decided
• Allah accepts du'a` (prayers and supplication)
• The Qur`an was revealed on this night.
