The Rivalry in Increase of Worldly Things Diverts You

In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful. "The mutual rivalry for piling up of worldly things diverts you; Until you visit the graves (i.e. till you die). Nay! You shall come to know! Again, Nay! You shall come to know! Nay! If you knew with a sure knowledge (the end result of piling up, you would not have occupied yourselves in worldly things). Verily, You shall see the blazing Fire (Hell)! And again, you shall see it with certainty of sight! Then, on that Day, you shall be asked about the delight (you indulged in, in this world)!" [Surah at-Takathur, 102:1-8, Translation by Muhsin Khan] Tafseer Ibn Kathir: In Read more ...

Do not enter the Ruins of the Punished People for mere Sightseeing

Sufyaan [ibn 'Uyayanah] narrated to us from 'Abdullaah ibn Deenaar from 'Abdullaah ibn 'Umar (radhiAllaahu anhu) that the Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) said,
"Do not enter the ruins of the people who were previously punished unless you are weeping. If you are not weeping, then do not enter their ruins, for I fear that what has befallen them may also befall you." [Musnad Ahmad, Vol. 2, p. 9. The isnaad of this hadeeth is saheeh according to the conditions set by al-Bukhari and Muslim.]
The Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) said this to his companions when he led them, in 9 AH, in an expedition to Tabook (about 400 miles north of Madinah) Read more ...


Urdu Dars: The Punishment for Breaking the Ties of Kinship

Topic: The Punishment for Breaking the Ties of Kinship

Speaker: Dr Murtaza bin Baksh, Jeddah.

Language: Urdu

The Jews Alter and Change the Law, Such As Stoning the Adulterer

"O Messenger (Muhammad sal-Allaahu 'alayhe wa sallam)! Let not those who hurry to fall into disbelief grieve you, of such who say: "We believe" with their mouths but their hearts have no faith. And of the Jews are men who listen much and eagerly to lies - listen to others who have not come to you. They change the words from their places; they say, "If you are given this, take it, but if you are not given this, then beware!" And whomsoever Allah wants to put in Al-Fitnah [error, because of his rejecting the Faith], you can do nothing for him against Allah. Those are the ones whose hearts Allah does not want to purify (from disbelief and hypocrisy); for them Read more ...

The Punishment for One who Breaks his Fast Intentionally!

Ibn Khuzaymah (1986) and Ibn Hibbaan (7491) narrated that Abu Umaamah al-Baahili (may Allah be pleased with him) said:

I heard the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) say:

"Whilst I was sleeping, two men came to me and took hold of my upper arm, and brought me to a rugged mountain. They said: 'Climb up.' I said: 'I cannot do it.' They said: 'We will make it easy for you.' So I climbed up until I was at the top of the mountain. There I heard loud voices. I said: 'What are these voices?' They said: 'This is the screaming of the people of Hell.' Then I was taken and I saw people suspended by their ankles, with the corners of Read more ...

What is the Punishment of Rape crime in Islam?


Praise be to Allah.

The Arabic word ightisaab refers to taking something wrongfully by force. It is now used exclusively to refer to transgression against the honor of women by force (rape).

This is an abhorrent crime that is forbidden in all religions and in the minds of all wise people and those who are possessed of sound human nature. All earthly systems and laws regard this action as abhorrent and impose the strictest penalties on it, except a few states which waive the punishment if the rapist marries his victim! This is indicative of a distorted mind let alone a lack of religious commitment on the part of those who challenge Allah Read more ...

God is Not a Terrorist

God is Not a Terrorist - Unearthing Our Common Humanity

From Ahmed Rehab, CAIR

Religious extremists waste no time declaring natural disasters to be God's punishment. The divine motivations they cite are different, but they invariably reflect personal religious or political agendas.

On different occasions, these extremists of different faiths said Hurricane Katrina was America's punishment for pressuring Israel to leave Gaza, for the invasion of Iraq or for domestic "immorality."

Such zealots invoke God's name to reinforce their own demands, without recognizing that God is not their personal lobbyist. A just God, and Muslims know one of God's Read more ...

Rights of Women in Islam : HIJAB

Rights of Women in Islam : Hijab
Over the years, the dress code among Muslim women has been given great attention, especially in relation to the hijab practice in which is considered as a symbol of “oppression” towards Muslim women. While Islam is certainly not the only religion to introduce the practice of covering head, it continues to be the centre of attack and heavily discussed as the women’s right issue especially outside Muslim world. Furthermore, this has been included as a political agenda in some countries, which results in Muslim women being oppressed and their freedom to practice their religion was taken away. Sadly, we also see that Read more ...
