Picture Perfect : Death is certain, Age is not

Allah says: “Everyone shall taste death. And only on the day of Resurrection shall you be paid your wages in full. And whoever is removed away from the fire and admitted to Paradise he indeed is successful. The life of this world is only the enjoyment of deception (a deceiving thing).” (Surah Al-‘Imran 3:175) Allah says: “And if you could but see when the wrongdoers are in the agonies of death, while the angels are stretching forth their hands saying, “Deliver your souls! This day you shall be recompensed with the torment of degradation because of what you used to utter against Allah other than the truth. And you used to reject His ayat (proofs, Read more ...

Picture Perfect : How’s your Imaan today?

"Being Muslim is your greatest blessing from Allah. Realize that when you no longer feel guilty over your sins, when you no longer feel inclined to repent, when you are no longer praying or reading the Quran, that you are at risk of being replaced by Allah, with another soul who will be more grateful for this gift.

Picture Perfect : Prophet’s Mosque

While Makkah is cardinally about the Kaaba, its pre-Islamic story, and early Islamic history; the Prophet’s (Sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) Madinah is where the religion took its final shape, where the Islamic state was formed, where Islamic law took a more dominant role, and where numerous battles were planned and fought. Madinah is replete with history of the nascent Islamic polity; it is an altogether different experience from Makkah – tranquil, and cooler in climate. Surely the Prophet’s mosque is the most beautiful and most aesthetically complete in the world: hundreds of magnificent Cordoban arches of subtly different designs and colors Read more ...

The Kaaba is a magnificent structure; it stands serene and immovable as thousands circumambulate it on three levels and playful birds chirp as they maneuver with wondrous swiftness above, occasionally mirroring the clockwise motion of the pilgrims below them. Its sight is compelling, gripping the eyes of hundreds who stand on the roof of the mosque staring at its mysterious beauty for hours at a time, impervious to fatigue. As Haddad observed: “Everybody performs the tawaf , moving in one circular motion around one pivotal point, synonymous with the regulation and orderliness Read more ...

And proclaim to mankind the Hajj..

Allah says: It was said to Ibrahim: “And proclaim to mankind the Hajj. They will come to you on foot and on every lean camel, they will come from every deep and distant mountain highway (to perform Hajj)” [Surah Al Hajj 22:27] This verse above is brought to life by a plethora of accounts spanning one and a half millennia. It seems particularly salient given that right up until the first third of the twentieth century, people of all colors, languages and lands were traveling (at least in the last leg of their journeys) on ‘camel’ and on ‘foot’ to the holy sanctuary. Around 4,000 years ago Ibrahim ibn Azar, thought to be from the ancient Read more ...
