By Raya Shokatfard / 2 Aug 2013

Most Muslims around the world prefer to pay their zakah (the poor due) in or by the end of Ramadan.

Source : / 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).

The first thing to understand is the difference between what is known as fard and what is known as nafl.  Fard is obligatory, it is what Allah requires us to do, and leaving it is a sin and we will be held accountable for it.  An example is two rakah of Fajr prayer and the fasts of Ramadan.

Be like the wind - charity in Ramadan

By Amatullah Aminah / 27 Jul 2013

Be charitable before wealth makes thee covetous. - Thomas Browne

It was a scorching 45 degrees Celsius day, as I sat in an air conditioned car, complaining on the heat. We stopped at a crossing, and a girl of 9-10 years tapped at my window. What I confronted virtually slapped me in the face; my eyes welled up and I shook my head in mortification. She was dishevelled, her hair in a tangled mess, her lips parched, imploring eyes, torn clothes and, to add to all the misery, she carried a baby (her brother, I am assuming) looking unconscious as she clutched him close!! And I was worried about dehydration, sun burn and getting sick!!!! What a shame.


Let us open our hearts in Ramadan

By Farhana Behjat / 26 Jul 2013

The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: "Musa, the son of Imran once asked, 'Oh my Lord! Who is the most honorable of Your servants?' And He replied, the person who forgives even when he is in a position of power" (Baihaqi).

There are many days when we get into an argument with our friends and relatives and the idea of forgiving them is very challenging and a tough task. Moreover, the thought keeps you from forgiving, ‘Why should I? He has hurt me’

Abdullah ibn Umar, may Allah be pleased with him, reported: 

كَانَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَ سَلَّمَ يَعْتَكِفُ الْعَشْرَ الْأَوَاخِرَ مِنْ رَمَضَانَ


Beware of Hatred and Malice in Islam

By Abu Amina Elias / 15 Jul 2013

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Islam teaches us to beware of hatred and malice. It is a disease of the heart whose consequences are destructive to the individual, the community, and the religion.

Anas ibn Malik (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:


Do not hate each other, do not envy each other, do not turn away from each other, but rather be servants of Allah as brothers.
