Mary: The Honored Mother in Islam

By Aisha Stacey / 15 Apr 2013

Esteemed and loved by all Muslims and known as a pious and devout woman, Mary, the mother of Jesus was chosen above all other women. Islam rejects the Christian notion that Jesus is part of a trinity that is God, and denies emphatically that either Jesus or his mother, Mary, are worthy of worship. The Qur’an categorically states that there is no god but God.

 Such is God, your Lord! None has the right to be worshipped but He, the Creator of all things. So worship Him …(Al-An`am 6:102)

 

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.

Patience in the Quran

By Abdullah M Khouj / 10 Apr 2013

In the name of Allah The Beneficient The Merciful

In the collection of Imam Ahmed there is a hadith that Allah SWT mentioned Patience in the Qur’an in 90 places.

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.

 

Fiqh of Zakah – Wisdom and Obligation

Source : BelieversPath.com / 8 Apr 2013

Zakah linguistically means increase, meaning there is more barakah in the wealth.  Also, it is an increase for the poor recipients. It also means purification because it is a means of purification for one’s wealth.

Zakah is mentioned together with Salah in the Quran about 32 times, and it is the third pillar of Islam.  The one who denies Zakah being a pillar of Islam, then by consensus, he is not a Muslim. However, the one who acknowledges Zakah but does not pay it, is a major sinner but still within the fold of Islam according to the majority of scholars, including the 4 madhabs.
