Bismi Allahir Rahmanir Raheem. All praise is for Allah, the Most High, the Lord of the Worlds. Allah's Peace and Blessings be upon all the Prophets of Allah, especially our Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu 'alaihi wa aalihi wa as-haabihi wa sallam).

 

The Status of Salah

Source : Islamic Da'wah Academy / 12 APr 2014

It should be remembered that in Salah, one communicates with one’s Lord, therefore, one should consider how one offers his/her Salah. Allah ta’ala has commanded us to establish the Salah. Establishment means to carry out Salah and all its constituents (including it’s pre-requisite: wudu [ritual ablution]) very carefully.

 

Depend Upon Allah, If You Are Indeed Believers

 

And to Allah belong the unseen [aspects] of the heavens and the earth and to Him will be returned the matter, all of it, so worship Him and rely upon Him. And your Lord is not unaware of that which you do. (Hud 11:123)

And will provide for him from where he does not expect. And whoever relies upon Allah - then He is sufficient for him. Indeed, Allah will accomplish His purpose. Allah has already set for everything a [decreed] extent. (Talaq 65:3)

 

Religious Love and Human Love in Islam

By Abu Amina Elias / Faith in Allah.org / 03 Apr 2014

Love is a deep concept that has many different attributes, as can be understood from the many words used to describe love in Arabic. In his commentary on the Forty Hadith, Imam An-Nawawi makes a distinction between religious love (muhabbat ad-diniyyah) and human love (muhabbat al-bashriyyah). In Islam, it is important for us to understand the difference between religious love and human love.

The Importance of Loving Awliya

Source : Agencies / 12 Mar 2014

Wali, plural awliya, is an arabic word meaning close friend. Awliya Allah, therefore, means Friends of Allah (swt).

Reference to the Friends of Allah (swt) is found in the Quran, Hadith Qudsi & Narrations of our Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him).

 

Dhikr is the greatest obligation and a perpetual divine order

Source : Sunnah.org / 08 Mar 2014

Dhikr of Allah is the most excellent act of Allah's servants and is stressed over a hundred times in the Holy Qur'an. It is the most praiseworthy work to earn Allah's pleasure, the most effective weapon to overcome the enemy, and the most deserving of deeds in reward. It is the flag of Islam, the polish of hearts, the essence of the science of faith, the immunization against hypocrisy, the head of worship, and the key of all success.There are no restrictions on the modality, frequency, or timing of dhikr whatsoever. The restrictions on modality pertain to certain specific obligatory acts which are not the issue here, such as Salat.

 

Increase your faith (Imaan) and earn rewards

By Aisha Stacey / New muslims / 17 Feb 2014

Because Allah is our Creator and He knows the nature of the human being He has provided us with guidance that both makes sense to humankind and is easy for us to carry out.  Inherently we find our level of faith (Imaan) and devotion rising and falling often without a pattern or a discernible reason. On the other hand engaging in sinful behaviour will lower our Imaan sometimes quite rapidly.   In response to our needs, Allah has given us several means to increasing our faith, and in line with our different abilities they are varied. One person might have the ability to increase his voluntary prayers, another might find it easy to fast and yet another might have the means to give more in charity.

 

Everything Allah decrees is good for the believer

By Abu Amina Elias / 1 Feb 2014

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

One of the greatest blessings of faith is the fact that everything Allah decrees for the believer, whether in ease or hardship, will be good for him. If he experiences ease, he remains grateful and is rewarded. If he experiences hardship, he remains patient and is rewarded.

Suhaib (may Allah be pleased with him) reported:

The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:
