Whoever relies on Allah (has Tawakkul), He is sufficient for him. (At-Talaaq 65:3) 

Tawakkul is another attribute that results from a true Iman in Allah Subhaanahu wa Ta`ala. It is an attitude that emanates from the conviction that:

Spiritual Benefits of Prayer

Remembrance of Allah

Almost every person in the modern world is involved in some basic worldly activity like earning a living, going to school, eating, sleeping, and socializing.  Naturally, we forget Allah and the obligations due to Him.  When we forget Allah, this life and its worries become the central occupation of the human mind.  Desires run wild.  A person begins to ‘chase his shadow’, something he can never catch.  For many, money becomes the sole goal of life.  The more you make, the more you spend, the more you want.

Benefits of Tawheed (Allah’s Oneness)

By Dr. Mohammed Rateb Nabulsi / 21 Mar 2013 

In the Name of Allah the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

The creed of Tawheed is the profound base of Islam, yet it is the core of all the Divine messages, Allah says:

(And We did not send any Messenger before you (O Muhammad) but We inspired him (saying): La ilaha illa Ana [none has the right to be worshipped but I (Allah)], so worship Me (Alone and none else).)[Surat Al Anbya’a, 21:25]

Abu Darda (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that Rasool Allah ﷺ said,“Should I not tell you of such a thinga which are the best and purest deeds in the court of your Lord, high in ranks (darajat), better for you then spending gold and silver (in Allah’s path), and better than slaying the neck of the enemy during war? The Sahaba said, “Yes, Oh Rasool Allah !”  He said,“It is Zikr of Allah.” (Tirmizi)

 

Three Stages to Tahajjud

By Mawlana Khalid Abdul Sattar / 13 Mar 2013

One of the most virtuous of the nawafil acts of worship is waking up in the middle of the night for tahajjud prayer.  This is that special time when the doors of mercy are thrown open and the angels are dispersed, seeking out those in need of their Lord. Yet, how unfortunate our situation is that we are deprived from this great bounty.

“Their sides shun their beds in order to pray to their Lord in fear and hope…”(Quran, 32: 16)

By Khurram Murad / 11 Mar 2013

1. Read the Quran with no purpose other than to receive guidance from your Lord, to come nearer to Him, and to seek His good pleasure.

What you get from the Quran depends on what you come to it for. Your intention and purpose is crucial. Certainly the Quran has come to guide you, but you may also go astray by reading it should you approach it for impure purposes and wrong motives.

 

The Inspiring Qur’an

By Agencies / 2 Mar 2013

The blessings of reciting Ayat Al Kursi (2:255)

Ayat Al-Kursi has a high status. It was reported from the Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him) that “It is the greatest verse in the Book of Allah.” It was narrated from Ubayy ibn Ka`b that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) asked him which verse in the Book of Allah was the greatest. He said, “Allah and His Messenger know best.” He repeated it several times, then he said, “Ayat Al-Kursi.” The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “Congratulations upon your knowledge, Abul-Mundhir. By the One in Whose hand is my soul, it has a tongue and two lips, and it glorifies the Sovereign (i.e., Allah) at the foot of the Throne.”

 

Peaceful Nights

By Naiyerah Kolkailah / 27 Feb 2013

'O Allah, I submit my soul to You, and I entrust my affair to You, and I turn my face towards You, and I totally rely on You, in hope and fear of You.’

Allah, the Exalted, says: "Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of the night and day are signs for those of understanding-who remember Allah while standing, sitting and [lying] on their sides" (Qur'an, 3:190-191).
