The Story of the Boy and the King from Surah al-Buruj

The Story of the Boy and the King - from Surah al-Buruj: Tafsir Ibn Kathir Imam Ahmad recorded from Suhayb that the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) said: Among the people who came before you, there was a king who had a sorcerer, and when that sorcerer became old, he said to the king, “I have become old and my time is nearly over, so please send me a boy whom I can teach magic.” So, he sent him a boy and the sorcerer taught him magic. Whenever the boy went to the sorcerer, he sat with a monk who was on the way and listened to his speech and admired them. So, when he went to the sorcerer, he passed by the monk and sat there with him; Read more ...

The Rights of Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him)

The Rights of Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) is the greatest right of any of the creation. None of the creation have a right greater than the rights of Allah's Messenger sal-Allaahu 'alayhe wa sallam. Allah – the Most High – says: “Verily, We have sent you (O Muhammad sal-Allaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) as a witness, as a bearer of glad tidings, and as a warner. In order that you (O mankind) may believe in Allah and His Messenger (sal-Allaahu 'alayhe wa sallam), and that you assist and honour him (sal-Allaahu 'alayhe wa sallam), and (that you) glorify (Allah's) praises morning and afternoon.” [Surah al-Fath, 48:8-9] Therefore it is obligatory Read more ...

“There Are Times Where My Heart Feels Clouded”

Al-Agharr al-Muzani, who was one amongst the Companions (of the Holy Prophet) reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: "There are times where my heart feels clouded (innahu la yughanu ‘ala qalbi); and I seek Allah’s forgiveness a hundred times a day." [Muslim, Sahih, no.2702] Istighfar or “seeking forgiveness” of Allah is not simply confined to when we commit sins. Rather, courtesy (adab) towards Allah requires us to feel a sense of shyness (haya) before Allah on account of committing what He considers disliked (makruh) too; even when no sin has been committed. At a loftier level of faith, those who are distracted from Allah, Read more ...

What goes up must come down…?

Source: | By: Jinan Bastaki There is something striking about the life of Yusuf 'alyahi as-salaam (peace be upon him). Every time it seems something good is happening to him, it is taken away or something messes it up. Think about it. He tells his father about his amazing dream, and his father informs him that it is something good, and that he is a prophet. Then his brothers throw him in the well. While he is in the well, waiting to be rescued, some passersby go to collect water, and instead they find him. AlhamdulilLah (praise be to God)! He is saved! But wait… they sell him at a market. He becomes a slave. The minister who buys Read more ...

The Jews breach the Sanctity of the Sabbath

The Prescription of the Sabbath for the Jews There is no doubt that for every nation, Allah prescribed one day of the week for people to gather to worship Him. For this Ummah He prescribed Friday, because it is the sixth day, on which Allah completed and perfected His creation. On this day He gathered and completed His blessings for His servants. It was said that Allah prescribed this day for the Children of Israel through His Prophet Musa, but they changed it and chose Saturday because it was the day on which the Creator did not create anything, as He had completed His creation on Friday. Allah made observance of the Sabbath obligatory for them in the Read more ...

Interpersonal Skills: Do not be Dictatorial!

Compare between three fathers. Each one of them sees his son sitting in front of the television screen during the days of his examination. The first one says to his son, “Muhammad! Revise your lessons!” The second says, “Majid! If you do not revise, by Allah, I will hit you and I will not give you any pocket money!” The third says, “Salih! Would you please revise your lessons? It would be better than watching television, don’t you think?” Which of the three would be considered best manners? Undoubtedly, the third, since he presented his order to him as if it were only a suggestion. Similarly, it should be the case when dealing with your Read more ...

Modern Israel: Pioneers of Terror in the Holy Land

Source: SuhaibWebb | By: Shibli Zaman I often hear the awfully misinformed and false claim: “They have been killing each other forever and they will just keep at it.” The truth is that, for 1400 years, Muslims ruled Palestine and the entire region, and Muslims, Christians and Jews had lived in peace. Of course, there were exceptions, such as when the European Crusaders, mowing down the inhabitants of Ma'arrat al-Nu'man on the way [Edward Peters, The First Crusade: The Chronicle of Fulcher of Chartres and Other Source Materials (University of Pennsylvania Press, 1998), 84.], invaded Jerusalem and killed every man, woman and child,  and 10,000 people Read more ...

Israeli Deceptions Revealed in Story of ‘Kidnapped’ Soldier

By Jonathan Cook – Nazareth | Source: PalestineChronicle A single incident at the weekend – the reported capture by Hamas on Friday of an Israeli soldier through a tunnel – illustrated in stark fashion the layers of deception Israel has successfully cast over its attack on Gaza. On Sunday, as the army indicated it would start limited withdrawals, Israel claimed Hadar Goldin was dead, possibly buried in a collapsed tunnel as Israel bombarded the area in which he was seized. His family said he was being left behind. Israeli officials or media did not view Hamas’ operation dispassionately. Goldin was not “captured” but “kidnapped” Read more ...
O Allah, Make us of Your Few Servants

O Allah, Make us of Your ‘Few’ Servants!

From Kitab al-Zuhd by Ahmad bin Hanbal | Translated by Jinan Bastaki When Umar bin al-Khattab radi allahu 'anhu (may God be pleased with him) was walking in the market, he passed by a man who was supplicating, “O Allah, make us of Your ‘few’ servants! O Allah make us of Your ‘few’ servants!” So 'Umar said to him, “Where did you get this du'a (supplication) from?” And the man said, “Allah in His Book says 'And few of My servants are grateful.' (Quran 34:13)” So 'Umar wept and admonished himself, “The people are more knowledgeable than you, O Umar! O Allah make us of Your 'few' servants.” Sometimes when you advise someone Read more ...
