Why does Earthquake occur?

All praise be to Allah. May Allah's Peace and Blessings be upon Allah's Messenger and upon his family, Companions, and those who follow his guidance! Allah (Glorified be He) is All-Wise and All-Knowledgeable with what He predestines and what He legislates and commands. He creates what He wills of portents. He predestines them to make His servants fear Him, reminds them of what they have to do and warn them against Shirk (associating others with Allah in His Divinity or worship), disobeying His commands and violating His prohibitions. Allah (Glorified be He) says: "And We sent not the signs except to warn, and to make them afraid (of destruction)." Read more ...

7 Fundamental Questions Regarding Islam

Question 1. What is Islam? Islam is an Arabic term that means: "To submit oneself to Almighty God by worshipping him alone, to yield in obedience to Him, and to free oneself from idolatry and those who worship other than Almighty God". Unlike the names used for other religions, the term Islam is not an attachment to any human being, time or location. For example, Buddhism was named after it's founder Gautama Buddha; Judaism refers to one of the sons of the Biblical patriarch Jacob (Israel), and Christianity is a reference to Jesus Christ. The term Islam on the other hand is a connection to the submission and worship of the one true Lord and Creator of Read more ...
Salafi Manhaj

What is Salafi Manhaj?

The Salafi Manhaj - Our Da'wah, Our Call 1.  We call, first and foremost, to the worship of Allaah alone, without associating partners with Him. This was the starting point of the call of the Messengers (alayhumus salaam), just as Allaah has stated: "We sent a messenger to every nation proclaiming: Worship Allaah alone and leave the worship of the false deities." So this call to the worship of Allaah alone is coupled with the negation of the worship of anything besides Him. 2.  We believe that our Religion calls to many essentials, so we call to the most essential affair, followed by that which is next in importance, in accordance to the Quranic Read more ...

Testimony that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah

In the grave the deceased will be tested with three questions. If they answer them correctly, they will be saved, and if not, they are doomed. One of these questions is "Who is your Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam)?" [The other two are: "Who is your God?" and "What is your religion?" [Ahmad]] No one will be able to answer correctly except those who have fulfilled the conditions of this testimony, and those who Allah inspires with the answers and bestows upon him firmness in the face of this severe test. These are the people who will benefit on that day when one's money or relatives will be of no avail. The conditions of the testimony of 'Muhammad Read more ...
laa illaha illalla

Testimony that Laa llaaha Illa-Allah

This phrase has two parts: 1) "Laa llaaha" : Which negates that anything or anyone deserves to be worshipped other than Allah. 2) "Illa-Allah" : Which affirms that Allah alone truly deserves to be worshipped. Allah (Subhanahu Ta’ala) said: "And (remember) when Ibraheem said to his father and his people: "Verily, I am innocent of what you worship, except Him (i.e Allah alone I worship none) Who did create me; and verily, He will guide me." [43:26-27] Therefore it's not sufficient to worship Allah, rather you must worship Him alone. The Tawheed of a person is not correct except by singling out Allah in worship and freeing one's self from polytheism Read more ...

A Composed Dialogue on Tawheed

A man by the name of Abdullah (Abdullah literally means the slave/worshipper of Allah) met a man named Abd-un-Nabi (The slave/worshipper of the Prophet) and felt apprehension of this name, thinking, "How can someone make himself the slave and worshipper of someone other than Allah?!" Abdullah thus addressed Abd-un-Nabi, saying: "Do you worship solmeone other than Allah?" Abd-un-Nabi replied. "No! I do not worship anyone other than Allah. I am a Muslim and I worship Allah alone." Abdullah: Then why does your name resemble some Christians names, like Abd-ul-Maseeh (The slave/worshipper of the Messiah, i.e. Jesus. This is a common name among Arab Christians). Read more ...

The Beauties of Islam

Undoubtedly, Islam is the most perfect religion, the most conformable to pure nature and sound reason. This is due to the characteristics, beauties, merits and benefits it comprises of that have never been found in any other religion before. "This day I have perfected for you your religion and completed My favor upon you and have approved for you Islam as religion." [Surah Al-Ma'idah, 5:3] Islam is the only religion capable of meeting the needs of both the soul and the body simultaneously. It does not view man as a gear in a machine as does communism, nor does it suppress man's natural needs and bar him from all his desires, as is the case with Read more ...

Man’s Sense of Sinfulness and Purification of Soul

Every human being is a unique creation containing some angelic, devilish and even animal-like characteristics. His angelic qualities are predominant when he sincerely worships God and establishes a close relationship with Him. Such a man is like the angels, who are depicted in the Quran as follows, "who do not disobey God in whatever He has commanded them, but (always) do what they are commanded to do." [At-Tahrim 66:6] But if a human being turns his back on or shows contempt for his Creator, or worships more than one God. He will fall victim to negative and harmful influences. When such a man gets angry he acts like a wild man, his sole aim being to Read more ...

The Falsehood of Shirk from the Parables in the Noble Quran

All praise is due to Allah, Lord of the Worlds and may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon our Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) and on his Family and Companions. "Verily, Allah is not ashamed to set forth a parable even of a mosquito or so much more when it is bigger than it. And as for those who believe, they know that it is the Truth from their Lord, but as for those who disbelieve, they say; "What did Allah intend by this parable?" By it He misleads many and many He guides thereby. And He misleads thereby only those who are rebellious, disobedient to Allah. Those who break Allah's Covenant after ratifying it and sever what Allah Read more ...
