The Rivalry in Increase of Worldly Things Diverts You

In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful. "The mutual rivalry for piling up of worldly things diverts you; Until you visit the graves (i.e. till you die). Nay! You shall come to know! Again, Nay! You shall come to know! Nay! If you knew with a sure knowledge (the end result of piling up, you would not have occupied yourselves in worldly things). Verily, You shall see the blazing Fire (Hell)! And again, you shall see it with certainty of sight! Then, on that Day, you shall be asked about the delight (you indulged in, in this world)!" [Surah at-Takathur, 102:1-8, Translation by Muhsin Khan] Tafseer Ibn Kathir: In Read more ...

The Five tests of today mentioned in the Quran

Allaah Subhanahu ta'ala says in the Quran:

"And certainly, We shall test you with something of fear, hunger, loss of wealth, lives and fruits, but give glad tidings to As-Sabirin (the patient). Who, when afflicted with calamity, say: "Truly, to Allaah we belong and truly, to Him we shall return." They are those on whom are the Salawat (i.e., who are blessed and will be forgiven) from their Lord, and (they are those who) receive His mercy, and it is they who are the guided ones." [Quran, Surah al-Baqarah, 2:155-157]

Soul of a Believer

Al-Baraa' ibn 'Aazib stated that the Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) said:
"When a believer is leaving this world and entering the next, angels with faces shining brightly like the sun descend from the heavens carrying a shroud and embalming fragrance from Paradise, and [then they] sit down within sight-range. The Angel of Death then approaches, sits by his head and says, 'O good soul, come out to Allah's forgiveness and pleasure.'
It will then come out like a flowing drop of water from a water-skin, and he will catch it. But, within the blinking of an eye after he catches it, they will take it and put it in the shroud and fragrance. There will Read more ...

A Historical analysis of date of birth & death of Prophet Muhammad

A Historical analysis of date of Birth and Death of Prophet Muhammad (sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam)
In the name of Allah, indeed all praise is due to Allah and may peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah.
Allah says in the Quran:

"Muhammad (sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam) is no more than a Messenger, and indeed (many) Messengers have passed away before him. If he dies or is killed, will you then turn back on your heels (as disbelievers)? And he who turns back on his heels, not the least harm will he do to Allah, and Allah will give reward to those who are grateful." [Quran 3:144]
The Prophet (sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam) informed us that Read more ...

Want to have a good Death? Live a good Life!

O mankind, have Taqwa of Allah the Exalted and prepare for the meeting with your Lord, with the preparation of the righteous. Verily the state of man is as his Lord the Exalted said:

"O man! Verily, you are returning towards your Lord with your deeds and actions (good or bad), a sure returning, so you will meet Him." [Surah Al-'Inshiqaq, 84:6]

O Muslims, verily the person does not know where he will die. And he does not know when he will die. As Allah the Exalted said:

"No person knows what he will earn tomorrow, and no person knows in what land he will die. Verily, Allah is All-Knower, All-Aware (of things)." [Surah Luqman, 31: 34]

The Jews Alter and Change the Law, Such As Stoning the Adulterer

"O Messenger (Muhammad sal-Allaahu 'alayhe wa sallam)! Let not those who hurry to fall into disbelief grieve you, of such who say: "We believe" with their mouths but their hearts have no faith. And of the Jews are men who listen much and eagerly to lies - listen to others who have not come to you. They change the words from their places; they say, "If you are given this, take it, but if you are not given this, then beware!" And whomsoever Allah wants to put in Al-Fitnah [error, because of his rejecting the Faith], you can do nothing for him against Allah. Those are the ones whose hearts Allah does not want to purify (from disbelief and hypocrisy); for them Read more ...

Every Soul Shall Taste Death

“The eyes surely tear,
and the heart is surely in pain,
but (with my tongue) I will only say that which is pleasing to Allah,
and we are indeed sad at being separated from you, O Ibrahim.”
— Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam), upon losing his child Ibrahim at 2 years old.
Almighty Lord Allah (Subhanahu Ta 'ala - exalted is He) says in the Quran:

"Blessed is He in Whose Hand is the dominion, and He is Able to do all things. Who has created death and life, that He may test you which of you is best in deed. And He is the All-Mighty, the Oft-Forgiving;" [Surah Al-Mulk, 67:1-2]
Every one of us has to die. In this regard Allah mentioned Read more ...

Love during the Time of Quraysh

Love is a powerful theme that features throughout history, with the power to launch a thousand ships or destroy a country. Zainab bint Muhammad (radhiAllahu anha) is an example of the strength of love and a Muslim woman's patience and courage.

Although her story does not feature as prominently in Islamic history as some other Sahabiyaat such as her mother, Khadijah, or her step-mother Aishah, she experienced one of the most difficult struggles faced by Muslim women: the battle between true love and spiritual conviction.

Zainab bint RasulAllah (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) was the eldest daughter of RasulAllah (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) and his Read more ...

Worship Allah, Not People

It is part of our nature as human beings to develop an attachment to those we love. From leaders to role models, to our family and friends; it is hard to imagine a world without those dear to us. The strongest and most powerful form of this love is the love we should feel for our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) who said, “None of you will have faith till he loves me more than his father, his children and all mankind.” (Bukhari)

That said, keep in mind that the foundation for this love stems from our love for Allah (subhanahu ta’ala – exalted is He) and our obedience to Him. The Messenger Sallallahu alayhi wassallam also said, “Whoever Read more ...
