What is Islam

Reproach For Not Adding "In Sha' Allah" When Making a Promise

By Mufti Muhammad Aashiq Ilahi Bulandshahri / 7 May 2013

"And never say with regard to anything, 'I will certainly do so tomorrow.

Unless (you say), 'By Allah's Will.' Remember your Lord when you forget, and say, 'I have the hope that my Lord will guide me to what is closer thereto in direction.'" - Surah Kahaf 18:23-24

 

Jealousy – A SIN

Source : Navedz.com / 3 May 2013

Jealousy (Hasad) is a disease of the heart. It is, perhaps, one of the oldest problems of human beings. Some Islamic scholars say that this is the first sin that was committed. When Allah said to the angels to bow down to Adam, Iblis refused to bow because he was jealous of the honor that Allah gave to Adam. He said to Allah, “Do You see? This one whom you have honored above me, if You give me respite to the Day of Judgment, I shall surely bring his descendants under my sway, all but a few.” (Al-Isra’ 62)

The Call of Islam: Peace & Moderation, Not Intolerance and Extremism

By Sadullah Khan / 29 Apr 2013

Islam is salaam (peace) and tasleem (submission to the Divine). In Islam Peace is the standard, it is the principle, and each person of faith has the moral obligation to maintain peace, without compromising on justice and truth. Islam invites to the subul as-salaam (pathway of peace); peace of mind, peace of conscience, peace in the family and society, peace with one's Creator and His creation. One of the attributes of the Divine is As-Salaam (The Source of Peace) and Muslim greeting universally, upon meeting and departing, is as-salamu 'alaykum or "peace be unto you". The final and ultimate reward for human endeavor is Paradise, referred to in the Qur'an as Dar-us-Salaam (Abode of Peace)

 

Birthday: Celebrate or Not to Celebrate

By Maryam Hedayat | islam.ru | 27 Apr 2013

Is celebrating birthdays forbidden?  Why is it frowned?  Isn’t it just simple fun and enjoyment?

We only invite friends and have a meal. Aren't we even allowed to celebrate anything? We only exchange gifts! Are exchanging presents improper?

The Prophet Muhammad, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam, received the revelation of the Quran from Jibreel (Gabriel), may Allaah exalt his mention, and conveyed it to people as it was revealed to him from His Lord. He urged his companions, may Allaah be pleased with them, to learn and memorize it.

 

Slaves in Islam – The Concept & Their Rights

By Ebrahim Saifuddin / 13 Apr 2013

Slavery is a concept that existed since pre-recorded history. However the way it was practiced in the Islamic world differs greatly than how it was practiced in the rest of the world. Even in the more recent times, centuries after the introduction of Islam, the non-Muslims have practiced slavery in the most barbaric manner. The whole Trans-Atlantic nonsense that was practiced by the Americans is one of the worst forms of slavery man has witnessed. The slaves were not treated as humans and did not have any rights. This way was much similar to the form practiced before the advent of Islam in the Times of Ignorance (Ja’hilah). Islam indeed came as a blessing to all Mankind and it was seen that slaves were given rights, something which the rest of the world never gave them.

 

Tawakkul

By Ayub A. Hamid / 8 Apr 2013

Whoever relies on Allah (has Tawakkul), He is sufficient for him. (At-Talaaq 65:3) 

Tawakkul is another attribute that results from a true Iman in Allah Subhaanahu wa Ta`ala. It is an attitude that emanates from the conviction that:

Allah has put me in this world temporarily for a test and all of my good and bad circumstances are part of the test.

 

Did Islam Spread by the Sword?

Source : Lostislamichistory.com / 4 Apr 2013

It’s a common accusation made against Muslims and Islam in general: “The only reason Islam is a world religion is because it spread by the sword.” It’s a favorite remark of Islamophobes who parade as analysts and historians fear-mongering about the threat Islam supposedly poses to the Western World. With it being such a hot topic that causes so much debate, it is appropriate to analyze and study this topic to better understand whether it is valid or not.
