By Abu Amina Elias / 3 Oct 2013

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

The first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah, the month of the Hajj pilgrimage, are a virtuous and blessed time for performing good deeds and remembering Allah. The good deeds performed during these ten days are greater than all others, except for someone who shows exemplary bravery and is martyred in a just cause for the sake of Allah.

Supplication through the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) (al-tawassul)

Source : / 21 Sep 2013

One of the concepts within Islam that has been misunderstood in the modern age is the concept of tawassul. We need to return to the original linguistic and legal meanings of this term before we can discuss the ruling of making tawassul through the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him).

The linguistic and legal meaning of a go-between (wasilah): Linguistically, al-wasilah is a rank with the king and nearness. Someone acts as a go-between with God for someone if they do something that draws them closer to Him. The wasil is the one who desires God. The poet Labid said:

Ghusl (Arabic: غسل‎ Ġusl ) is an Arabic term referring to the full body ritual washing ablution required, if the adult loses the state of body cleanness, in Islam for adults prior to ablution (wudu وضوء) for various rituals and prayers. Ghusl is mandatory for any adult Muslim after having sexual intercourse, orgasmic discharge (e.g. semen), completion of the menstrual cycle, giving birth, and death by natural causes.

Did Prophet Muhammad use curses and profanity? Some non-Muslims say he did and some Muslim preachers use vulgar insults against people.


In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

The Messenger of Allah did not swear, cuss, use profane language, curse others, or spread obscenity. Rather, he warned us about such language and he counseled us to uphold the integrity and dignity of the believer by avoiding such behavior.

Saying YA RASOOLALLAH Allowed or Not?- Shaykh Muhammad Al Yaqoubi

Al-Yaqoubi was born in Damascus, Syria. He comes from a family of Islamic scholars who have taught the Islamic sciences for centuries. His father, Ibrahim al-Yaqoubi (d. 1985) was a scholar. His paternal grandfather Ismail al-Yaqoubi (d. 1960) was a scholar and Sufi master. His father’s maternal uncle was Arabi al-Yaqoubi (d. 1965), and his paternal uncle was the Gnostic Sharif al-Yaqoubi (d. 1943).

Did Islam Spread by the Sword?

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.

It is not permissible for a Muslim to curse a specific person, animal, or object.


A Timeless Love - The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ and His Wife Khadijah : Video

Al-Habib Ali Al-Jifri (الحبيب علي الجفري) beautifully recalls the loving companionship of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, and his loyal wife Khadijah. He explains how this love story began and continued even after she passed away; and most importantly, what lessons we can learn from this story for our own marriages.

The first wife of the Prophet Muhammed (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) has earned many honorifics: Ameerat-Quraish (Princess of Quraish), al-Tahira (the Pure One), and Khadijah Al-Kubra (Khadija the Great)
