The Creation of Man as Mentioned in the Quran

“Say (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)): "He is Allah, (the) One. Allah-us-Samad (The Self-Sufficient Master, Whom all creatures need, He neither eats nor drinks). He begets not, nor was He begotten; And there is none co-equal or comparable unto Him."” [Quran, 112:1-4] “Verily, the likeness of 'Iesa (Jesus) before Allah is the likeness of Adam. He created him from dust, then (He) said to him: "Be!" - and he was.” [Quran, 3:59] We often overlook how much can be learned from Quranic sources. Islam encompasses several paradigms that benefit mankind in guidance and righteousness, as well as in scientific knowledge and the progression of human physiology. We Read more ...

How does a Father Teach his Children Tawheed?

Mu'adh bin Jabal narrates that the Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) said: "O Mu'adh! Do you know what Allah's Right upon His slaves is?" I said, "Allah and His Apostle know best." The Prophet said, "To worship Him (Allah) Alone and to join none in worship with Him (Allah). Do you know what their right upon Him is?" I replied, "Allah and His Apostle know best." The Prophet said, "Not to punish them (if they do so)." [Sahih Bukhari, Book #93, Hadith #470] Shaykh Allama Muhammad bin Salih al-Uthaymeen -Rahimullaah- was asked: How does a father teach his children Tawheed? He answered: "He teaches them Tawheed just like he teaches them other matters Read more ...
Mother's Unconditional Love

The Lofty position of Mothers

The position of my mother remained unknown to me, until I contemplate what my Lord revealed through His prophet – That I worship none but Him and be kind to my parents and say not a word of contempt in the least bit (uff) and obey in all their orders unless it’s something which Allah has forbidden. And address them in honor and abstain from what they forbid and provide them, serve them and raise not voice in front of them nor fix glance upon them or call them by their names. And be patient with them and out of kindness lower to them the wings of humility and say – My Lord! Bestow on them your mercy as they cherished me in childhood. One Read more ...

Life Lessons : The Impact of Meeting Shaykh Ibn Baz

Source: Saudilife | By: Waleed Basyouni I traveled to Riyadh to meet Shaykh Ibn Baz [the late Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia] carrying with me a copy of an invitation to a concert in our city Dammam in Saudi Arabia. To tell you the truth I was not sure if my visit would make any difference; these types of concerts were supported by some powerful people in that region, I had only met Shaykh Ibn Baz up until that point a few times and I didn’t even think he knew me as I was only a freshman in college. So here I was, an unknown freshman entering the office of the Mufti of Saudi Arabia. His office was large, it could host up to seventy people in Read more ...

The Grief of a Mother, and the Love of a Son

Ibn Hubayrah, the governor of Iraq tried to force Imam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) to accept the role of Qadi (Judge). When the Imam refused, he was struck with a hundred and ten lashes. He was beaten so severely that his head was swollen and breathing became difficult for him. He remained strong throughout his torture but when he found out that, his mother was grieved by what had happened to him, his eyes overflowed with tears. When he was freed, he said: ‘The grief of my mother was more difficult on me than the beating.’ [Fada'il Abu Hanifah] Read more ...

Muslim Fathers Have to Man Up

Source : http://muslimmatters.org/  |  By Yahya Whitmer As-Salamu Alaykum, There is an old saying that goes “It takes a village to raise a child”. To me, that statement emphasizes the tremendous impact that a child's environment and peers has on his or her development. In a hadith narrated by Imam Muslim, the Prophet  mentioned that sheep shepherds are meek and humble, whereas the caretakers of camels are proud and arrogant, indicating that these human beings are influenced by the innate character of the animals that they take care of. In commenting on this hadeeth, the Ulema have long mentioned that if people are susceptible to being Read more ...

“When they place me into the grave raise your hands to Allah, and invoke Him to forgive me…”

One day, Ibban bin Saleh left the company of Anas bin Malik (radhiAllahu anhu) and began to walk in the marketplace, when suddenly, 4 men carrying a bier with a corpse on it passed by. Ibban then exclaimed, “Strange indeed! The marketplaces of Basrah are filled with people, yet only 4 people are following this funeral procession; verily, I will make it 5.” Before they reached the graveyard, and when it was time to pray over the deceased, Ibban asked others, “Who among you is the guardian (or relative) of the deceased, so that he can lead the funeral prayer?” The others answered in unison, “In terms of closeness to the deceased, we are all equal.

Motherhood

It is the right of your mother that you should appreciate that she carried you [in her womb] the way nobody carries anybody, She fed you the fruits of her heart which nobody feeds anybody. She protected you [during pregnancy] with her ears, eyes, hands, legs, hair, limbs, [in short] with her whole being, gladly, cheerfully, and carefully; suffering patiently all the worries, pains, difficulties, and sorrows. Till Allah removed you from her and brought you into this world. Then she was most happy, feeding you forgetting her own hunger, clothing you even if she herself had no clothes, giving you milk and water not caring for her own thirst, keeping you in Read more ...

Love my mother, love my mother, love my mother, love my father…

Narrated by Abu Huraira: A man came to Allah's Apostle and said, "O Allah's Apostle! Who is more entitled to be treated with the best companionship by me?" The Prophet said, "your mother." The man said. "Who is next?" The Prophet said, "your mother." The man further said, "Who is next?" The Prophet said, "your mother." The man asked for the fourth time, "Who is next?" The Prophet said, "your father. " (Sahih Bukhari, Book #73, Hadith #2) I never truly grasped the meaning of this hadith until I attained parenthood. The position that Allah has given to a mother and a father is immence. Kindness to one’s mother is three times more important than to one’s Read more ...
