Number 7 is also very frequent in the Prophetic narrations. Take for example the narration in which the Prophet, sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam, defined the number of major sins to be seven.

The miraculous nature of the Quran

Source : Islamweb / 25 Feb 2014

The Quran is the eternal miracle of the Prophet, sallAllahu `alayhi wa sallam. It is the Word of Allah which no human anywhere will ever be able to compose something like it at all times and everywhere. Allah challenged the Arabs, who were very eloquent and rhetorically skillful people, to compose something like it, ten chapters or even one chapter. Allah, the Almighty, says (what means):

“Say: "If the mankind and the Jinn were together to produce the like of this Quran, they could not produce the like thereof, even if they helped one another.”  [Quran 17:88]

 

Increase your faith (Imaan) and earn rewards

By Aisha Stacey / New muslims / 17 Feb 2014

Because Allah is our Creator and He knows the nature of the human being He has provided us with guidance that both makes sense to humankind and is easy for us to carry out.  Inherently we find our level of faith (Imaan) and devotion rising and falling often without a pattern or a discernible reason. On the other hand engaging in sinful behaviour will lower our Imaan sometimes quite rapidly.   In response to our needs, Allah has given us several means to increasing our faith, and in line with our different abilities they are varied. One person might have the ability to increase his voluntary prayers, another might find it easy to fast and yet another might have the means to give more in charity.

The answer to this question lies in the practice of the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) and the Noble Companions (may Allah be pleased with them).

How To Memorise Surah Mulk

Narrated Ibn 'Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him):

"One of the Companions of the Prophet (ﷺ) put up a tent upon a grave without knowing that it was a grave. When he realized that is was a person's grave, he recited Surat Al-Mulk until its completion. Then he went to the Prophet (ﷺ) and said: 'O Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) [Indeed] I erected my tent without realizing that it was upon a grave. So when I realized there was a person in it I recited Surat Al-Mulk until its completion.' So the Prophet (ﷺ) said: "It is a prevention, it is a salvation delivering from the punishment of the grave.'"

 

Peace in the Holy Quran

By Abu Amina Elias / 13 Feb 2014

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful Allah the Exalted said:

وَعِبَادُالرَّحْمَٰنِالَّذِينَيَمْشُونَعَلَىالْأَرْضِهَوْنًاوَإِذَاخَاطَبَهُمُالْجَاهِلُونَقَالُواسَلَامًا

The servants of the Most Merciful are those who walk upon the earth in humility, and when the ignorant address them, they say words of peace.

SurahAl-Furqan 25:63

No other religion or institution gives as much importance to knowledge as the religion of Islam.  The religion has made seeking knowledge incumbent upon all Muslims and has deemed that not doing so as a sin.  The Prophet, may Allah praise him, said in an authentic narration (hadeeth):

“Seeking knowledge is an obligation upon every Muslim.” (Al-Tirmidhi)

 

Slaughter and the Prophet (SAW) Instructions

Source : Eat-halal.com / 12 Feb 2014

Human beings should always remember that it is only by the grace of God that they are allowed to slaughter animals such as sheep, cows and poultry for food. They are also permitted to catch fish to eat. Therefore when they slaughter animals and catch fish, they should always show their gratitude to God for His blessings and approach the task of slaughter with humility and propriety. This requires that they should understand and abide by the Islamic teachings which regulate this activity.
