Don’t Just Assume he is Salafi. Make Sure he is Salafi

Shaykh Ahmad Bazmool said: I would like to draw my Salafi brothers’ attention to a dangerous issue. This issue has deceived them into thinking that anyone who is put forward to teach is [in fact] someone who should be studied under. So if he sees him writing on Salafi forums, he thinks he is Salafi. If he sees that he has authored books, he thinks he is Salafi. If he sees that he delivers sermons and he is able to articulate eloquently, he thinks he is Salafi. If he sees that he gathers the youth and teaches them Tawheed or Usool ath Thalaatha and the likes of these issues, he thinks he is Salafi, if they see that he is a university teacher, he thinks 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."

Kids listen to our deeds

How many times have you told your kids to change their clothes / brush their teeth / do their homework / or anything else for that matter? There is really no right answer because there is really no limit to the number of times we have to ask our kids to do something. For most of us, this is a normal part of our daily lives. We ask, and ask, and ask, and if we are lucky, our kids cooperate after the fourth request or after a loud but otherwise harmless scolding. We complain that our kids never listen to us; we ask other parents how they get their kids to behave, eat their vegetables, or go to sleep. We consult books and Internet sites at all hours on Read more ...

Ramadan : Recite, Learn & Teach the Quran

Abu Umama said he heard Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) say: "Recite the Quran, for on the Day of Resurrection it will come as an intercessor for those who recite It. Recite the two bright ones, al-Baqarah and Surah Ali 'Imran, for on the Day of Resurrection they will come as two clouds or two shades, or two flocks of birds in ranks, pleading for those who recite them. Recite Surah al-Baqara, for to take recourse to it is a blessing and to give it up is a cause of grief, and the magicians cannot confront it. (Mu'awiya said: It has been conveyed to me that here Batala means magicians.)" [Sahih Muslim, Book #004, Hadith #1757] The Prophet Read more ...

Ramadan : Teach Children to Fast in Ramadan

Al-Rubay’ bint Mu’awwidh (may Allah be pleased with her) said, speaking about Ramadan when it was made obligatory: “We used to make our children fast, and we would make them a toy made out of wool. If any one of them started to cry for food, we would give them that toy to play with until it was time to break the fast.” [al-Bukhari, Fath, no.1960] Children should be instructed to fast at the age of seven, if they are able to, and may be pushed at the age of ten if he does not fast, just as in the case of salaah. (See al-Mughni, 3/90) The child will be rewarded for fasting, and the parents will be rewarded for bringing him up properly and Read more ...
