Hijrah: Sacrifices of a Great Generation

By Dr. Irshad Altheimer / 08 Nov 2013

It was the 12th year after the commission of the Prophet’s mission.  The Muslims had endured tremendous hardship at the hands at the Quraish, yet they remained steadfast in their faith.  The seeds of belief had firmly taken root in the hearts of the believers, yet the realization of Islam at a societal level was stymied by a socio-political system that resisted overtures for complete submission to the one true God.

 

Prophet Muhammad’s Smile

By Aisha Stacey / 06 Nov 2013

Islam is more than a religion; it is an entire way of life.

It teaches us how to behave from morning until night and it even tells us the best position to sleep in.

To some that might sound like 24 hours a day of rules and regulations but the truth is that Islam is such a natural way of life the rules become as easy as breathing.

 

Traps of Satan for New Muslims

By Raya Shokatfard / 05 Nov 2013

Those who come to Islam as a result of search, contemplation and determination, know that they have made the best and most significant decisions of their lives.

They did this by embracing the most complete and final religion!

{Today I have completed your religion for you, and I have perfected My favor on you...}(5:3)

Don't be sad- By Sheikh Mumtaz Ul Haq

Someone who turns to Allah and attains His companionship although he/she may still get problems. But, Allah will inspire them and give them the strength to deal with the problems.

"Allah puts no burden on any person beyond what He has given him. Allah will grant after hardship, ease." Quran [at-Talaaq, 65:7]

"Surely with every difficulty there is relief. Surely with every difficulty there is relief." Al- Quran [Shrah, 94:5-6]

 

 

Muslims Being Racist!? - Shaykh Zahir Mahmood

Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) dealt with these issues of racism  1400 years ago.

When Abu Dharr (may Allah be pleased with him) said to Bilal (may Allah be pleased with him) – “You son of a black woman!”

And Bilal (may Allah be pleased with him) got insulted and he went to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). He said “O Messenger of Allah” …”This is what Abu Dharr has said to me”

 

Which Muslim Group is Correct?

We got too many guys who think they are only on the haq.

This is the worst form of pride. That when you give your pride a religious justification, so you think you can speak condescendingly to other people.

You think that you have a God given right to look down on other people

But never in 1400 years has the entire ummah agreed on one way. Never even in the time of the sahaba

 

The reality of the punishment of the grave

By Mawlana Saanwal ibn Muhammad / 26 Oct 2013

It is the belief (aqidah) of the Ahl al-Sunnah wa ‘l-Jama’ah that the punishment in the grave is a reality which is proven from the Qur’an and ahadith. Hereunder are some references.

Verses from the Qurān:

النَّارُيُعْرَضُونَعَلَيْهَاغُدُوًّاوَعَشِيًّا. وَيَوْمَتَقُومُالسَّاعَةُأَدْخِلُواآلَفِرْعَوْنَأَشَدَّالْعَذَابِ

 

Suppressing Anger

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) used to say "don't be angry and will be rewarded with Paradise" 

"A man came to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and said : O Messenger of God who are the people that Allah loves the most?

And what deeds does God love most?"

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) replied :

 

Can individual Muslims implement Islamic legal punishments?

By Abu Amina Elias / 24 Oct 2013

Question:

Are ordinary Muslims allowed to punish murder, theft, and adultery?

Answer:

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

It is not permissible for a Muslim without judicial authority to implement Islamic legal punishments on his own initiative. Vigilante justice, or “taking the law into your own hands,” is unlawful in Islam because it will lead to chaos and possibly greater harm than the crimes themselves.
