Inna lillaahi wa inna ilayhi Raaji'oon

 Yeah, sure we say this statement when someone dies. Also some of us may say this sentence when they lose something, suffer a setback or harm. But………..do you know what it means?

Sure, everyone know that it obviously means 'To Allah we belong and to Him is our return.'

 

The Design in Water

Source : ScienceandQuran.com / 30 May 2013

Most of our planet is covered with water. Oceans and seas make up three fourths of the earth's surface while the land itself contains countless numbers of rivers and lakes. The snow and ice on the summits of lofty mountains is water in its frozen form. A substantial part of the earth's water is in the sky: every cloud contains thousands--sometimes millions-of tons of water in the form of vapor. From time to time, some of this water vapor turns into drops of liquid and falls to the ground: in other words, it rains. Even the air you're breathing now contains a certain amount of water vapor.

Ibn Kathir writes in his commentary on Surah Al-Balad:

Allah said:

The Purpose of Life…

Source : WhatIslam.org.uk / 24 May 2013

We all have an equal responsibility. That responsibility is to listen with an open heart and an open mind. In a world filled with prejudice and cultural conditioning, it is very hard to be able to find people to take a moment to think about life objectively and try to arrive at the truth about this world and the real purpose of our lives.

 

For the Sake of Allah

By Ismahan Abdullahi / 23 May 2013

There was a time when words spoken were binding contracts; pledges held and honored, where an individual would act as a testimony to his character.  Speech was not just words of folly, but rather true and honest communication between individuals. Often times we utter words heedlessly without realizing the impact it has on our hearts and in our lives, failing to comprehend the weight of what we have just spoken. We tend to abuse or misuse certain words as we throw them around, to the point where we use such words and phrases without truly understanding their meaning and the inner state of being that should come with it. Amongst these words and phrases is “for the sake of Allah” (lil Lah ta`ala).

And from his narration on the authority of Ibn ‘Abbas that he said regarding the interpretation of Allah’s saying (Say: He is Allah, the One!): ‘(Say: He is Allah, the One!) the people of Quraysh asked the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him): “O Muhammad! Describe for us your Lord; is He made of gold or silver?” And so Allah revealed this surah to describe His attributes and traits, saying: say to Quraysh, O Muhammad: He is Allah, the One, He has no son or partner.

 

Why we Read Qur'an ?

By Muhammad Irfan Kas / 20 May 2013

Why do we read Quran, if we can’t understand a single Arabic word?

This is a beautiful story: An old American Muslim lived on a farm in the mountains of eastern Kentucky with his young grandson. Each morning Grandpa was up early sitting at the kitchen table reading the Quran. His grandson wanted to be just like him and tried to imitate him in every way he could.
