Patience with Trials and Tribulations

By Abu Amina Elias / 23 Aug 2013

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Muslims will endure many trials throughout their lives.

Allah tests us with hardship and also prosperity in order to validate the sincerity of our faith.

Allah said:

الَّذِيخَلَقَالْمَوْتَوَالْحَيَاةَلِيَبْلُوَكُمْأَيُّكُمْأَحْسَنُعَمَلًاوَهُوَالْعَزِيزُالْغَفُورُ

Source : Eislam.co.za / 2 Jul 2013

In life there are occasions and opportunities where a person has a chance to increase in profits and rewards significantly. One such opportunity is the Blessed Month of Ramadaan, wherein rewards are multiplied enormously. This is a time where we can exert ourselves in prayers to gain nearness to Allah Ta’ala.

An exceptional prayer that can be performed in Ramadaan as well as throughout the year is Salaatut Tasbeeh, a special prayer taught to the Muslim Ummah by The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him).

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

Purification of the Heart and Soul in Islam

By Abu Amina Elias / 1 July 2013

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

The command to purify our hearts from sin was an essential Islamic teaching ever since the early stages of the revelation in Mecca. This is known as “purification of the soul” (tazkiyyat an-nafs).

 

Truthfulness

By ISWM / 24 June 2013

Purification of the self (nafs) or the soul (rooh) means to prepare it to receive, recognize, and reflect the Truth, namely Allah, the Creator and the Sustainer of all existence. Purification of the soul, therefore, is the purpose of all acts of worship. Allah Almighty says that the purpose of the mission of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah of him) was to purify and teach us.

He Almighty Says (what means): {As we have sent to you a messenger from among you who recite to you Our verses, and purifies you, and teaches you the Book and wisdom, and teaches you what you knew not.} [Quran 2:151]

Bayah & the Importance of a Spiritual Guide/Murshid

 

By Muhammad Irfan Kas / 17 May 2013  

Pledging allegiance, also known as taking bayah or bayt, is a tradition from the times of Beloved Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him).

Once such example of this is when the Noble Companions pledged oath to him under the tree. In this incident, each Companion placed their hand in the hand of the Beloved Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), and affirmed their faith in the oneness of Allah (tawheed).

 

Purification of the Soul

Source : Newmuslims.com / 4 May 2013

“Purification of the soul” deals with the heart. Hearts cannot obtain their desire unless they are connected with their Lord.  They cannot connect with their Lord unless they are “pure,” because Allah is Pure and only accepts what is pure. The purer the heart, the closer it will be to its Lord and enjoy being with Him.
