Allah

Two Ways to Success

By Khurram Murad / 8 Mar 2013

The abundance of Allah’s rahma or mercy will not come without pure actions. Pure actions, however, when performed, will make you deserving of Allah’s mercy. This, in turn, will enable you to earn the delights of janna and His pleasure.

Seeking Allah’s Mercy

The Qur’an proclaims: {Call on Him with fear and longing. Surely, Allah’s mercy is ever near to the doers of good.} (al-Araf 7: 56)

 

Allah mercy and the fragile world we live in

Source : Onislam.net / 8 Mar 2013

Of the 99 Beautiful names of Allah, it is Ar-Rahman and Ar-Rahim that we use most frequently in our prayers and du’aa. Ar-Rahman and Ar-Rahim are both derived from the same Arabic root word, rahma, meaning “mercy, compassion.” Pickthall translates Ar-Rahman, Ar-Rahim as “the Beneficent, the Merciful,” and Yusuf Ali says “the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.”

Most of us, unfortunately, take Allah’s mercy and compassion for granted. But if we pause for a moment and reflect on the depth and extent of Allah’s mercy, we will be astonished beyond words.

 

What is Dua?

By Aisha Stacey / 6 Mar 2013

Dua– an Arabic word written here in English letters. Three small letters that make up a word and a subject that is large and breathtaking.  This word ‘dua’ could be roughly translated to mean supplication or invocation.  Although neither word adequately define dua.  Supplication, which means communicating with a deity, comes closer than invocation which is known to sometimes imply summoning spirits or devils.

Source : Islamweb.net / 6 Mar 2013

Asceticism, or Zuhd, is to abandon the desire for something for the sake of something which is better, and to abandon the comfort of this world for the sake of that of the Hereafter. It also means that the heart should not desire anything that one does not possess. Knowing that this worldly life is temporary and will eventually come to an end helps the slave of Allah to be this way.

The Boy and the Dog

Once Abdullah Bin Jafar (may Allah be pleased with you) was passing through a forest when he went by an orchard where an Abyssinian (Ethiopian) slave was working. Someone brought him his food and, at the same time a stray dog came into the garden, and stood by the slave, who threw a loaf of bread to the dog, which ate it but did not go away. The slave-boy threw it a second loaf and a third one, thus letting it eat the whole of his daily provision of food, keeping nothing back for himself.

 

World of the Jinn

Source : Agencies / 5 Mar 2013

Some people have attempted to deny the reality of the Jinn about whom the Qur'an has devoted a whole chapter, Soorah al-Jinn (72). By relying on the literal meaning of the word Jinn which comes from the verb Janna, Yajunnu: "to cover, hide or conceal", they claim that the word Jinn really refers to "clever foreigners". Others have even stated that a Jinn is a human who does not have a true mind in his head but he has a fiery nature. But, the reality is that the Jinn represent another creation of Allah, which co-exists with man on the earth. Allah created the Jinn before He created mankind, and He also used a different set of elements than those used for man.

Allah said: "Verily we created man from dried clay, from black putrid mud. And we created the Jinn before that from a fiery wind." (Surah al-Hijr 15:26)

 

Beneficial means to reflect upon the Quran

Source : Islamweb.net / 5 Mar 2013

Allah says (what means): “[This is] a blessed Book which We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad ], that they might reflect upon its verses and that those of understanding would be reminded.” [Quran: 38: 29]

Reflecting upon the Quran is one of the reasons behind its revelation; it is the way to comprehend its rulings and find out its objectives and meanings. The Quran will not be properly understood, nor will its objectives be truly realized except by pausing at each verse and giving it its due right of pondering to discover the meanings and wisdom within it.

 

The Marriage Process in Islam

Selecting a Spouse

The first thing we should look for when marrying is how committed the person is to Islam. Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi was sallam) said, “A woman is normally sought as a wife for her wealth, beauty, nobility, or religiousness (adherence to Islam), but choose a religious woman and you will prosper.” (Muslim)

 

What is Islam?

Source : Agencies / 4 mar 2013

Islam means submission to Allah and obedience of His orders, worshipping Him alone sincerely and abiding by His Laws (Sharia').

Allah sent Muhammad, sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam, with the religion of Islam. His Message was the last of all messages, and was intended for all mankind every where and during all times. Allah took it upon Himself to preserve and protect this Message from all distortion, change or deformation. The foundation of this last Message is the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet, sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam. Allah says (what means):

 {It is He who has sent His Messenger with Guidance and the Religion of Truth. That He makes it prevail over all religion}[Quran 61:09].
