Dealing in Riba (Interest) is War against Allaah and His Messenger (pbuh)

In the name of Allaah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful Verily, the issue of Riba is one of the most serious matters that should be tackled. In this regard, all of the heavenly revelations have prohibited dealing in it, and Allaah warns those dealing in it with the severest threat. Allaah, Exalted be He, says: "Those who consume interest cannot stand (on the Day of Resurrection) except as one stands who is being beaten by Satan into insanity..." [Quran: Al-Baqarah: 275] In this verse, Allaah decrees for the person, who deals in Riba and accepts its interest that he "cannot stand" from his grave "except as one stands who is being beaten Read more ...

Thank Allah, and watch as He increases you

Something amazing happened to me on Tuesday. I had been making du'a (supplication) for a very long time for something in particular.

If we choose to seek the Countenance of Allah subhanahu wa ta`ala (exalted is He) above all else, invoke His Mercy and without a doubt He will shower His blessings upon us infinitely and Aid us where we struggle. I thanked Allah for the blessing He had bestowed upon me one after the other... in so many ways. “’If you are grateful, I will surely increase you [in favor],’” [Quran, Surah Ibrahim, 14:7] Allah subhanahu Read more ...

Do You Have a Door?

As a matter of fact, every one of us, Muslim or non-Muslim, enjoys countless blessings that Almighty Allah has bestowed on all humans. However, many people are not satisfied with these blessings, longing for more. Their big mistake is that they seek what they do not have, completely forgetting or ignoring what they have already got.

To be grateful servants of Almighty Allah, we have to look at the full half of the cup and look for the hidden blessings in our lives. We should think of those who have less than what we have, not those who have more. The Read more ...
