All praise is due to Allaah, the Lord of the worlds – may the salutations of Allaah, His peace and blessings be upon the Most Noble of all of the Prophets and Messengers, Muhammad, and upon his family, his Companions and all those who follow them precisely until the establishment of the Hour.

A Composed Dialogue on Tawheed

A man by the name of Abdullah (Abdullah literally means the slave/worshipper of Allah) met a man named Abd-un-Nabi (The slave/worshipper of the Prophet) and felt apprehension of this name, thinking, "How can someone make himself the slave and worshipper of someone other than Allah?!"

No matter how short lasting and incomplete the Roman experience Read more ...
