The Deep Pit of My Inner Mind

The Deep Pit of My Inner Mind by Hebah Ahmed [MM Associate] I used to exhibit a certain reactionary pattern that seemed to arise whenever I entered a Masjid or Muslim gathering. It was this pesky little habit of immediately taking in my surroundings and making a mental note of everything wrong that I could perceive. I turned from one unknowing victim to another, ticking off all of the Islamic violations they were committing according to my personal pedestal of judgment. “She is not wearing hijab, tsk! tsk!” “He is laughing with that woman who is most certainly not his wife or family member, shame!” “How can she possibly show up here with her Read more ...

Then which of the favours of your Lord will you deny?

Then which of the favours of your Lord will you deny? I know one, who claimed as an atheist who sounds to hate God badly. He asked God to give miracles for him to believe God’s existence. He said 'God give nothing' and he then deciced that there is no God. Our life is miracle. Look at people around us, see how they are beautiful, our eyes can see this world clearly, isn’t it wonderfull? The trees, the flowers, the sun, the moon, the stars... the love we have. From micro-orgasms to the human. From whales to ants and everything in between. The atmosphere we breath, the lakes we swim in, the forests in their splendor, the desert in its empty grandeur Read more ...

Adhan : An Amazing Discovery

An incredible medium for the proclamation of Tawheed of the Almighty Allah and risalat of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu alayhi wassallam, the sound of which constantly echoes around the globe.  Amazing though it sounds, it is an established fact. Have a look at a map of Indonesia (an Islamic country) right on the eastern side of the earth’s central land mass. Indonesia consists of numerous small islands, the principle ones amongst them being Java, Sumatra, Borneo and Celebes, all of which are well known. It is the largest Islamic country in the world, with 180 millions inhabitants. The number of non-Muslims here is negligible. As soon as dawn breaks Read more ...

Why We Read The Quran Even If We Don’t Understand It

Why Do We Read the Quran Even though We Don’t Understand A Single Arabic Word? An old American Muslim lived on a farm in the mountains of eastern Kentucky with his young grandson. Each morning Grandpa was up early sitting at the kitchen table reading his Quran. His grandson wanted to be just like him and tried to imitate him in every way he could. One day the grandson asked, “Grandpa! I try to read the Quran just like you but I don’t understand it, and what I do understand I forget as soon as I close the book. What good does reading the Quran do?” The Grandfather quietly turned from putting coal in the stove and replied, “Take this coal basket Read more ...

The Miracle Of Human Mind

The caliph once sent a Jewish scholar to debate with Imam ‘Ali ibn Musa Ar-Ridha (peace be upon him). The Jew said to him, “How can you accept Muhammad as the Messenger of God when he showed no miracles?” The Imam replied, “The greatest miracle of God is the human mind. It allows ideas to be thought through and reasoned out. Man must accept God through reason, not through miracles.” At first glance it might seem as though this story confirms that the Prophet showed no miracles, while history proves that he performed many remarkable actions that can only be accomplished through Allah’s power and will. We know of the moon splitting, rocks, trees, Read more ...
