The Karbala massacre is notoriously known for being one of the darkest and saddest days in Islamic history. On the tenth day of the sacred Islamic month of Muharram, in the year 61 A.H., approximately 50 years after the death of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), his grandson Hussein was martyred along with all the members of his family, including women and children.

By Abdul Wahid Hamidi / 05 Nov 2013

He is `Abullah ibn `Uthman ibn `Amir ibn `Amr from a branch of the Quraysh tribe. His father, `Uthman, was known as Abu Quhafa. His mother, Salma, was also known as Umm Al-Khayr.

From his early years, Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him) was known for his good and upright nature. He was honest and truthful and came from a noble family. These things won him respect among the people. His goodness also won him the friendship of young Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). The two became fast friends in early boyhood. The friendship was to prove lifelong and history making.

 

Bilal Ibn Rabah: Islam’s first Muezzin

By Aisha Stacey / 1 Aug 2013

Bilal Ibn Rabah’s (may Allah be pleased with him) acceptance of Islam is a powerful story, involving slavery, conversion, torture, and rescue.  It touches on aspects of racism, is a lesson in pluralism, and teaches us that piety is the only way to measure of a person’s worth. Bilal’s story is also the story of the adhaan, or call to prayer, for Bilal (may Allah be pleased with him) was also Islam’s first muaddhin [1].

 

Voluntary Fasts

By C. Mofty / 1 Aug 2013

The first thing to understand is the difference between what is known as fard and what is known as nafl.  Fard is obligatory, it is what Allah requires us to do, and leaving it is a sin and we will be held accountable for it.  An example is two rakah of Fajr prayer and the fasts of Ramadan.

This is a story of a seeker of Truth, the story of Salman the Persian, gleaned, to begin with, from his own words:
