The Prophet Muhammad's (pbuh) Night Journey

By Sami Zaatari / 18 Feb 2013

One of the miraculous events that took place during the lifetime of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was his night journey from Makkah to the city of Jerusalem, this event is known as Al-Isra wal Mi’raj. The event is relayed to us in the Noble Quran:

“Exalted is He who took His Servant by night from al-Masjid al-Haram to al-Masjid al- Aqsa, whose surroundings We have blessed, to show him of Our signs. Indeed, He is the Hearing, the Seeing. (all things).” (17:1)

 

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.

 

Accompany Your Child to the Masjid

By ISWM / 18 Feb 2013

When your child is able to perform prayer as due, or even is able to comprehend prayer before reaching the age of distinction, you should accompany him to the masjid so as to perform congregational prayers. This makes the child’s heart attached to the greatest educational institutions in the Muslim society, imbuing the child with love for the masjid. Thus, the parent should edify his child on the virtue of the congregational prayer and that it is twenty-seven times better than the prayers offered alone, and make him love the masjid by trying to please him, for example, whenever you go to the masjid; you may take a trip or go shopping before or after going to the masjid.

 

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.

The Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) and helping the poor

By Sami Zaatari / 15 Feb 2013

One of the most widespread and dangerous problems faced by humanity is that of poverty, hunger and starvation. There is nothing more horrifying than the realization that as we live our happy lives here, millions of our fellow human beings live in hunger and face starvation. The majority of the world population today lives in poverty. It is clear that the world system we have set up today is unjust and inhumane.

 

Valentine’s Day…and its position in Islam

Source : Muftisays.com / 14 Feb 2013

Let’s roast a turkey on Christmas day; it’s not as if we celebrate Christmas anyway…Why not book her engagement day for Valentine’s Day instead… In fact I think I should pick up a quick gift for him since it’s nearly the 14th of Feb…

These are just a few of the very familiar words that seem to escape the mouths of so many Muslims today…Infact Did you know that ‘Valentine’s Day’ is actually remembered and celebrated by so many different people around the world today, that statistics indicate it is second only to Christmas in fame and popularity…giving preference over many other religious and non-religious celebrations. Why not, after all it is the festival of love!
