RasoolAllah (pbuh), you taught us to be Patient, Respectful and Disciplined. To not act in a way that would be detrimental to ourselves or to those around us. No one in your (pbuh) presence felt threatened and nothing that would be considered good, was disregarded by your call.

The Jinn of Nasibain

The Jinn of Nasibain (From the Jinn of the Island) “Say (O Muhammad Sallallahu alayhi wassallam): “It has been revealed to me that a group (from three to ten in number) of jinns listened (to this Quran). They said: ‘Verily! We have heard a wonderful Recital (this Quran)! ‘It guides to the Right Path, and we have believed therein, and we shall never join (in worship) anything with our Lord (Allah).” [Surah al-Jinn, 72:1-2] “And (remember) when We sent towards you (Muhammad Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) Nafran (three to ten persons) of the jinns, (quietly) listening to the Quran, when they stood in the presence thereof, they said: “Listen Read more ...

The Signs of Bliss & Misery

"One with whom was knowledge of the Scripture said: "I will bring it to you within the twinkling of an eye!" then when [Sulaiman (Solomon)] saw it placed before him, he said: "This is by the Grace of my Lord to test me whether I am grateful or ungrateful! And whoever is grateful, truly, his gratitude is for (the good of) his ownself, and whoever is ungrateful, (he is ungrateful only for the loss of his ownself). Certainly! My Lord is Rich (Free of all wants), Bountiful."" [Quran, Surah al-Naml, 27:40] "As for man, when his Lord tries him by giving him honour and gifts, then he says (puffed up): "My Lord has honoured me." But when He tries him, by straitening Read more ...

The kuffars attempt to put off the light of Islam

The kuffars attempt to put off the light of Islam in the early years of the Prophet - Taken from the book Ar-Raheeq-ul-Makhtoom (The Sealed Nectar) Having fully perceived that Muhammad (Peace be upon him) could never be desisted from his Call, Quraish, in a desperate attempt to quell the tidal wave of the Call, resorted to other cheap means acting from base motives: 1. Scoffing, degrading, ridiculing, belying and laughter-instigating cheap manners, all of which levelled at the new converts in general, and the person of Muhammad (Peace be upon him) in particular, with the aim of dragging the spirit of despair into their morale, and slackening their ardent Read more ...

Serving Our Faith in Our Daily Lives

How can I serve my faith in the course of my daily life? What contribution can I make as I go about my normal business? This is a question that many of us ask ourselves and it is a very good question. The Prophet (peace be upon him said): “Every person goes forth in the morning trading in his own self. He either earns its freedom or consigns it to perdition.” Therefore, we ask ourselves: "Should I focus on enjoining people to what is right? Should I forbid them from what is wrong? Is it best for me to gather together the children and help them to commit the Quran to memory? Should I rather get involved in some charity work?" The ways that we as Muslims Read more ...

The First Night In The Grave

The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam) said, "Everyone who dies - then his actions are sealed except for the one guarding the border in the way of Allah - his actions continue to increase for him until the Day of Resurrection and he is saved from the trials of the Grave." [Sahih: Abu Dawud, at-Tirmidhee, al-Haakim: from Fadaalah ibn 'Ubaid & Ahmad from 'Uqbah ibn 'Aamir.] The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam) said, "Verily the grave is the first stopping place for the Hereafter; so if he is saved therein, then what comes after is easier than it. And if he is not saved therefrom, then that which comes after is harder." Read more ...

Friday Khutbah (Sermons) : The Basis of Unity

Friday Khutbah (Sermons) : The Basis of Unity - by Yasir Qadhi The Transcript: PART I When we turn to ahadeeth of the Prophet sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam, we find that a small hadith might contain so much benefit that volumes can be written about it. As he himself said, "Indeed I have been given comprehensive speech." In other words, a very small statement or a very small phrase will be able to carry a great meaning. This is the case with a particular hadith – the Hadith of ‘Irbad ibn Sa’riya, named after the companion who narrated it. This hadith is so well-known and comprehensive that when this companion’s name is mentioned, this hadith comes Read more ...

The Gradual Approach

The Gradual Approach By - Dr. Muhammad b. Lutfi al-Sabbagh Those of us who wish to succeed in calling people to righteousness should follow the Prophet's example of taking a gradual approach in teaching them the legal rulings of Islam. This approach is clear from the Prophet's own approach to calling to Allah, an approach that he bequeathed to his Companions. When Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) send Mu'adh b. Jabal to Yemen, he advised him as follows: He told him to first call the people to monotheism and to abandon idolatry. Then, if they accept that, he should move on to the other pillars of Islam. Each pillar was introduced on its own. The people Read more ...

Surah Al Kafirun

Surah Al Kafirun, 109:1-6 (Those who reject Faith - the Disbelievers) 1) Say : O ye that reject Faith! 2) I worship not that which ye worship, 3) Nor will ye worship that which I worship. 4) And I will not worship that which ye have been wont to worship, 5) Nor will ye worship that which I worship. 6) To you be your Way, and to me mine. Some of the leading disbelievers of Makka had proposed to the Holy Prophet a compromise between Islam and their ancient faith such as they conceived it, so that their idols might also have an honourable mention in the adoration of the worshippers. The Holy Prophet resisted all appeals to worldly motives, and stood firm to Read more ...
