An odd story

By Shaykh Said Afandi al-Chirkawi an-Naqshbandi

روي أن ملكين التقيا في السماء الرابعة فقال لأحدهما صاحبه : إلى أين تقصد...الخ . ((موعظة حسنة)) ، صـ 296

Once two angels met in the forth heaven.  One asked the other: “Where are you going?” The other answered: “I am going to fulfill a strange order given to me: in one city there is a dying Jew who wants to eat a certain kind of fish. But this fish does not inhabit the river where the Jew lives. My task is to take the fish from where it lives, throw it into the river near the Jew’s house and make a fisherman fish it out so the Jew gets the fish for his meal.”


The Pleasures of Paradise

By M. Abdulsalam / 26 Nov 2013

The reality of Paradise is something which people will never be able to understand until they actually enter it, but God has shown us glimpses of it in the Quran.  He has described it as a place essentially different to the life of this world, both in the very nature and purpose of life, as well as the types of delights which people will enjoy therein. The Quran tells people about Paradise, which God offers to them, describes its great blessings, and proclaims its beauties to everyone. It informs people that Paradise is one of two ways of life prepared for them in the afterworld, and that every good thing will be theirs in Paradise to a degree that surpasses our present ability to imagine. 


Ilm ul Ghayb- The Knowledge of the Unseen

Source : / 18 Nov 2013

We, the Ahl as-Sunna, believe that Allah has given the knowledge of the Ghayb (unseen), to the Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace), and that it is also permissable to say that our Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) knows the knowledge of the Ghayb. However, it is not possible, nor permissable to say that the Prophet's (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) knowledge of the Ghayb is equal to that of Allah - or even like the knowledge of Allah, since Allah's knowledge is His own and the Prophet's (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) knowledge has been given to him by Allah.


Traps of Satan for New Muslims

By Raya Shokatfard / 05 Nov 2013

Those who come to Islam as a result of search, contemplation and determination, know that they have made the best and most significant decisions of their lives.

They did this by embracing the most complete and final religion!

{Today I have completed your religion for you, and I have perfected My favor on you...}(5:3)


An Experiene to Inspire Your Whole Life

By Muhammad Fathi / 22 Oct 2013

After finishing the rituals of Hajj, with all of its spirituality, devotion, sincerity, sacrifice and dedication, the question is: Should all of these awe-inspiring feelings be restricted to the few days of Hajj?

We should always think of Hajj as a journey intended to guide us on how to lead our larger journey of life. It is the model after which Muslims should pattern their lives. This connection between Hajj and life is very important; after all, both of them are journeys that need special preparation and should have special goals.


Performing Salah to Perfection

Performing Salah to Perfection – A Reason for the Descent of Material Blessings

By Shaykh Said Afandi Al-Chirkawi ad-Daghestani an-Naqshbandi

Describing the characteristics of God-fearing people, Allah says: “They are people striving to perform the five times daily prayers with hudhur, fulfilling all its foundations and conditions, performing each bow and prostration to the utmost, and are consistent in it.”

Sweetness of Faith

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 Only Living Sahabi : Video

The last Sahabi alive. The last good fellow alive. This is how they call this tree located in the inhospitable desert in northern Jordan.

A caravan going to Syria sat down under its shadow. Muhammad, the future Prophet of Islam (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), was travelling with the caravan. He (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was as young as nine years old and was accompanying his uncle Abu Talib.


Tabarruk (Relics)

Source : / 31 Aug 2013

Tabarruk means blessed. In special terms, it means to obtain blessing from the pious. This is permissible, but there are some people who say to obtain blessing from the pious or their posessions is impermissible and the one who says it is permissible is leading the people into the way of shirk. We, the Ahl as-Sunna, say that tabarruk is proved from the Qur'an and Sunna and thus is permissible; to call it kufr and shirk is not acceptable.
