The Kalimah is the essence of Islam. A true Muslim is one who is completely aware of the meaning of the Kalimah, proclaims it with sincerity and devotion, and acts and lives in accordance to its requirements.

Istikharah Prayer

By Aisha Stacey / 18 June 2013

What is Istikharah?

Istikharah is a du’a made in conjunction with non-obligatory prayer; it is a voluntary prayer that Prophet Mohammad recommended to anybody wanting to do something but feeling hesitant about doing it.  It is seeking guidance in order to make the right decision.  It is reported that Prophet Muhammad would teach his companions to make Istikharah just as he would teach them verses from the Quran.  One should pray two units of non-obligatory (voluntary) prayer and then say the du'a of Istikharah.

 

Prayers of Repentance

By NewMuslims.com / 29 May 2013

A Muslim may choose any language and wording to express feelings of remorse and return to God as long as they do not contain expressions contrary to the prophetic teachings.  At the same time, prayers taught by Allah Himself in the Final Revelation, the Quran, or through His Prophet are superior in that they comprise of direct, comprehensive words reflecting humility and proper etiquette of addressing the divine.  Using the words of God in itself is an act of worship for which one will receive additional reward.  Also, the Prophet knew his Lord best and was the most humble of men and intimately close to His Lord.  Consequently, his prayers have a special potency in attracting divine grace, not to mention that many of these words were revealed by God through Gabriel.
