Quran

Zikr of Allah

Source : Islamicacademy.org / 14 Mar 2013

Abu Darda (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that Rasool Allah ﷺ said,“Should I not tell you of such a thinga which are the best and purest deeds in the court of your Lord, high in ranks (darajat), better for you then spending gold and silver (in Allah’s path), and better than slaying the neck of the enemy during war? The Sahaba said, “Yes, Oh Rasool Allah !”  He said,“It is Zikr of Allah.” (Tirmizi)

 

Why do people love to gossip?

By Deana Nassar / 14 Mar 2013

Backbiting is a disease of the heart.

Spreading private information or negative judgments is painful to others and reflects poorly on the backbiter.

Last week as I was sitting at a station listening to some girls talk about people I was shocked at how awful they were.

 

Dua for Anxiety and Stress

Source : Makkah.wordpress.com / 13 Mar 2013

Here are some dua’a to make when under stress and experiencing anxiety. They are a means of dispelling fear, of seeking forgiveness of Allah, seeking His aid, protection and guidance. They are the words of the Messenger of Allah (sall’allahu alayhi wasallam) and hence anyone that sincerely makes these dua during times of great need Allah will always answer the dua of the sinere seeker. May they be of benefit to us all for there is not a time in the life of a believer when he or she does not need the protection, guidance and mercy of Allah.

 

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in the Bible

Source : Islamawareness.net / 13 Mar 2013

"Those who follow the Messenger, the unlettered Prophet whom they find written in the Torah and the Gospel with them. He enjoins upon them that which is right and forbids for them that which is evil. He makes lawful for them all things that are good and prohibits for them all that is foul and he relieves them from their burden and the fetters that they used to wear. Then those who believe in him, honor him, assist him, and follow the light which is sent down with him: they are the successful"

The noble Qur'an, Al-A'araf (7):157.

 

Three Stages to Tahajjud

By Mawlana Khalid Abdul Sattar / 13 Mar 2013

One of the most virtuous of the nawafil acts of worship is waking up in the middle of the night for tahajjud prayer.  This is that special time when the doors of mercy are thrown open and the angels are dispersed, seeking out those in need of their Lord. Yet, how unfortunate our situation is that we are deprived from this great bounty.

“Their sides shun their beds in order to pray to their Lord in fear and hope…”(Quran, 32: 16)

 

Ayshah bint Abu Bakr

By Dar-us-Salam / 13 Mar 2013

'Ayshah (may Allah be pleased with her) was born in 614 CE, she had claims to noble birth from both sides of the family. Her mother was Umm Roman and her father was Abu Bakr As-Siddiq (may Allah be pleased with him).

She said that there were nine blessings of Allah which distinguished her from all other women in the world except Maryam bint 'Imran, the mother of 'Isa (peace be upon him).

 

The True Spirit of Jihad

Source: Muslim.org / 12 Mar 2013 

“The believers are those only who believe in Allah and His Messenger, then they doubt not, and struggle hard with their wealth and their lives in the way of Allah. Such are the truthful ones.”(Al-Hujurat 49:15)

Jihad is an Islamic institution that is widely misunderstood. The non-Muslims fearfully regard it as an Islamic practice that aims to wage ‘Holy War’ against all disbelievers, to convert them to Islam or to kill them. To the common western mind, the word ‘Jihad’ is synonymous with ‘terrorism’ and Islam is a ‘militant’ religion.

 

What does Islam say about "mothers"?

By Ansar Al-'Adl / 12 Mar 2013

This is one of the most convincing things about Islam - the treatment of women in general and especially the high position mothers hold in Islam.

Amongst the clearest examples of Islam's honoring women is the great status of the mother in Islam. Islam commands kindness, respect and obedience to parents and specifically emphasizes and gives preference to the mother as shall be shown in this article. Islam raises parents to a status greater than that found in any other religion or ideology.

 

The Kaba – the Sacred House of Allah

By Aisha Stacey / 12 Mar 2013

The Kaba  is the sacred House of Allah situated in the middle of the Holy mosque in the city of Mecca, in Saudi Arabia.  The black cube shaped box is familiar to people of all faiths due to the images that come out of Saudi Arabia every year at pilgrimage time. Usually when people see these images, their attention is focused on the black box being circled by hundreds if not thousands of worshippers.  This box is the Kaba.

“Allah has made the Kaba, the Sacred House, an asylum of security, Hajj, and 'Umrah (pilgrimage) for mankind...”(Quran 5:97)

 

Islam, Prophets and Mosques

By Dr. Spahic Omer / 12 Mar 2013

Islam is the truth which Allah made man's permanent companion on the earth as soon as he was sent to it, on account of that truth being meant for him. Numerous prophets from different epochs and in different geographical settings were chosen to perform the task of conveying and explaining the truth of Islam to people. The long process commenced with Adam, the first man and prophet on earth, and came to an end with Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), the seal of prophets, after humankind had reached a point where a final, universal, eternal, and all-inclusive divine message was possible.
