How to Convert to Islam and Become a Muslim

By IslamReligion.com / 22 Feb 2013

The word “Muslim” means one who submits to the will of Allah, regardless of their race, nationality or ethnic background. Becoming a Muslim is a simple and easy process that requires no pre-requisites. One may convert alone in privacy, or he/she may do so in the presence of others.

 If anyone has a real desire to be a Muslim and has full conviction and strong belief that Islam is the true religion of God, then, all one needs to do is pronounce the “Shahada”, the testimony of faith, without further delay. The “Shahada” is the first and most important of the five pillars of Islam.

 

The Conditions of La ilaha illa-llah

There is no question that the mere saying of, "I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allah and I bear witness that Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) is His servant and messenger," is not sufficient for salvation. In fact, the hypocrites used to make this statement quite often yet Allah describes them as liars and says that they shall abide in the lowest abyss of the Hell-fire.

 

How to Enjoy a Productive Weekend

By Tushar Imdad-ul-Haque Bhuiya / 16 Feb 2013

Here are my top 5 suggestions for weekend activities, which are all in line with Islamic virtues.

#1 Increase Your Worship

Free time at the weekend is a blessing. We all would love more free time. A secret of the pious is that whenever they want to increase a blessing they give shukr for it, due to Allah’s (glorified and exalted be He) promise in the Qur’an:

‘If you are grateful to Me, I shall certainly increase you (in favour).’[Quran: Chapter 14, Verse 7]

 

The Pleasures of Paradise

By M. Abdulsalam / 16 Feb 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 Allah 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.  It also shows that Paradise is a place where all blessings have been created perfectly and where people will be offered everything their souls and hearts will desire, and that people will be far removed from want and need, anxiety or sadness, sorrow and regret. 

 

7 Prophetic Strategies of Correcting Mistakes

By Maha Ezzeddine / 9 Feb 2013

Mistakes are the consequences of life and being human. They help us repent, learn and grow wiser. Mistakes can be catalysts of self-improvement and reminders of our imperfections. Still, we tend to interpret mistakes more as disaster than opportunity.

Prophet Muhammad, the Messenger of God (peace and blessings be upon him) and the most brilliant educator of humanity, approached mistakes not as cause for shame, but as teachable moments. Even though the Prophet taught his companions to strive for excellence and conquer their flaws, mistakes were inevitably made, some minor and some very serious. Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) corrected people’s missteps with gentleness, empathy, and creativity. He used mistakes as opportunities to empower people, not break them.

Tests by Allah سبحانه و تعالى

By Ebrahim Saifuddin / 5 Feb 2013

Allah سبحانهوتعالىhas tested the people of the past in various ways and will keep on testing His creation. He has informed us about these tests in the Quran. Our beloved Prophet Muhammad also informed us that Allah سبحانهوتعالىwill test us from time to time. Sometimes hardships and losses occur in life due to our sins. To wash of these sins in this world, Allah سبحانهوتعالىinflicts upon us these hardships:

Narrated by 'Ayesha (may Allah be pleased with her): Allah’s Apostle said, “No calamity befalls a Muslim but that Allah expiates some of his sins because of it, even though it were the prick he receives from a thorn.” (Sahih Bukhari Vol. 7, Book 70, #544)

 

Prophet Muhammad's (pbuh) trust in Allah

Source : Islamweb.net / 22 Jan 2013

The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) preached to the people to trust in Allah. His whole life was a sublime example of the precept. In the loneliness of Makkah, in the midst of persecution and danger, in adversity and tribulations, and in the thick of enemies in the battles of Uhud and Hunayn, complete faith and trust in Allah appears as the dominant feature in his life.

 

The believer’s faith

By Dr. Mohammed Rateb Nabulsi  / 9 Jan 2013

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

"Fear Allah wherever you are". This is your relation with Allah the Almighty

"Do good deeds after doing bad ones, the former will wipe out the latter". This is your relation with yourself.

And "behave decently towards people".This is your relation with the society
