Praise be to Allah, the Lord of Creations, and Peace and blessings be upon our prophet Muhammad, the faithful and the honest.

Oh, Allah, we know nothing but what You teach us. You are the All- Knower, the Wise. Oh Allah, teach us what is good for us, and benefit us from what You taught us, and increase our knowledge. Show us the righteous things as righteous and help us to do them, and show us the bad things as bad and help us to keep away from them.

 

The Purpose of Man’s Creation

By Mufti Muhammad Taqi Usmani / 22 June 2013

Know that Allah (Exalted is He) created man for His worship.

Thus, Allah (Exalted is He) states in the Noble Qur’an:

“I have not created jinn and humankind but to worship Me.”(Qur’an 51:56)

Meaning, I created jinn and man only for one purpose, which is My worship. The original purpose of man’s life and the original purpose of his coming into this world and residing in the world is that he worships Allah (Magnificent is His Glory).

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.
