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 ...

Celebrating Prophet’s Birthday is Bid’ah

Celebrating Prophet's (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) Birthday is Bid'ah Praise be to Allah. There is nothing in the Quran to say that we should celebrate the Mawlid or birthday of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). The Prophet himself (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) did not do this or command anyone to do it, either during his lifetime or after his death. Indeed, he told them not to exaggerate about him as the Christians had exaggerated about Jesus (upon whom be peace). He (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Do not exaggerate about me as the Christians exaggerated about the son of Maryam. Read more ...

For many among them are rebellious transgressors."

The Day We Lost Our Masjid

The Day We Lost Our Masjid   Do you know the last public place where the Messenger of Allah (SAW) was seen? He was seen in the Masjid. About 3 days before he passed away, Abu Bakr (RA) was leading the prayer and the Masjid was full with an ummah of men and women prepared to illuminate the world with their jihaad and da’wah. The Prophet’s house opened up to the Masjid; there was a curtain separating his room and the prayer hall. He opened the curtain, saw the congregation, and saw his khalifah, Abu Bakr (RA), leading the prayer. The Prophet Muhammad (SAW) smiled like the moon. The companions saw him while they were in prayer, and from their happiness, Read more ...

War Ethics in Islam : Prisoners of War

In The Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger (SAW). As Islam stands against waging war, especially against the innocents, it never overlooks the possibility that mankind may resort to war against each other. That’s why it shows keenness on regulating warfare, between Muslims and non-Muslims; it enumerates those that should not be killed or even targeted during the battles. Not only that. Islam also sets rules regarding those taken as prisoners of war; how they should be treated and dealt with. This is what is clarified by Sheikh Muhammad Abu Zahra, in his book Read more ...
