The Blessings of Living by the Sunnah

By AKM Mohiuddin / 13 Feb 2013

Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi  wa sallam) is a unique gift of incalculable blessings for us from Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta'la). One can possess this gift and experience the blessings only by following his Sunnah, his way of life. Only through the Sunnah can one reap the full harvest of Islam. The Muslim is at his best when he lives by the Sunnah of the Holy Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam). This is exactly what is meant when Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta'la) says in the Qur'an , "Verily in the Messenger of Allah you have the best example for him who looks unto Allah and the Last Day, and remembers Allah much" (Al- Ahzab 33:21).

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.

Virtues of Visiting the Sick

Source : Agencies / 7 Feb 2013

It is a Sunnah of our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) to visit the sick. We should always visit those who are sick because it helps us to reflect and take heed, as those who are ill are close to Allah Ta'ala. We have only to consider that the sick person has no one to call but Allah, nothing to reflect on but Allah, and his condition reminds us of the blessing of health.

Hadrat Abu Moosa (R.A.) reports that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “Visit the sick, feed the hungry and free the one who is imprisoned (unjustly).” [Sahih Bukhaari]
