O Allah, Make us of Your -Few-Servants! Score: Comment Printer Friendly Send to a Friend Save as PDF Read More... 

When Umar bin al-Khattab radi allahu `anhu (may God be pleased with him) was walking in the market, he passed by a man who was supplicating, “O Allah, make us of Your ‘few’ servants! O Allah make us of Your ‘few’ servants!”

So ‘Umar said to him, “Where did you get this du`a’ (supplication) from?” And the man said, “Allah in His Book says ‘And few of My servants are grateful.’(Qur’an 34:13)” So ‘Umar wept and admonished himself, “The people are more knowledgeable than you, O Umar! O Allah make us of Your ‘few’ servants.”

Sometimes when you advise someone to leave a sin, they respond with “But most people do it, it’s not just me!”

But if you look for the words “most people” in the Qur’an, you will find that most people
“do not know”
“do not give thanks” (2:243) and
“do not believe” (11:17).


As Ramadan comes to an end: stay healthy Score: Comment Printer Friendly Send to a Friend Save as PDF Read More... 
science in Islam

With only a few days left to go in the holy month of Ramadan, Muslims who observe the fast fall into two broad categories. Some are so used to the rhythms of fasting that it feels almost natural at this point. For others, the final stretch is psychologically and physically the hardest.

This year poses an even greater challenge, with Ramadan falling during some of the longest and hottest days of the year, requiring a fast of 15 or more hours in some parts of the world. The dramatic change from regular eating habits can take a toll on an one’s health and energy, and makes it difficult to keep up a regular fitness regimen. But there are ways to turn it around.

Here are some tips to make a Ramadan fast beneficial, rather than damaging, to your health:

Eat meals, not feasts

When the body is starved of food, it burns fat to make energy, which can help shed the pounds. But that benefit can be lost with excessive feasting at the post-sundown meal, the iftar. Dr. Terry Meriden, an endocrinologist at the Thyroid & Metabolism Clinic in Peoria, Illinois, tells Quartz that it’s important to limit portions, or an opportunity to lose weight could be wasted. Although it might seem like the natural reaction to overstuff your stomach when it is finally time to eat, overeating causes discomfort in the abdomen, and pretty much rules out all hopes of being active after eating. The same goes for water. There is no reason to down your recommended eight glasses as soon as the sun sets. Sip, don’t chug, to gently rehydrate.


Zakat Al-Fitr is due before Eid prayer Score: Comment Printer Friendly Send to a Friend Save as PDF Read More... 
Anas (may Allah be pleased with him), a companion of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) reported that when the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) migrated from Makkah to Madinah, the people of Madinah used to have two festivals. On those two days they had carnivals and festivity. The Prophet (peace be upon him) asked the Ansar (the Muslims of Madinah) about it.

They replied that before Islam they used to have carnivals on those two joyous days. The Prophet (peace be upon him) told them: “Instead of those two days, Allah has appointed two other days which are better, the days of Eid Al-Fitr and Eid Al-Adha.” (Hadith)

Eid Al-Fitr is celebrated on the first day of Shaw’waal, at the completion of Ramadan. Shawwal is the 10th month of the Islamic calendar. The Eid Al-Fitr is a very joyous day; it is a true Thanksgiving Day for the believing men and women. On this day Muslims show their real joy for the health, strength and the opportunities of life, which Allah has given to them to fulfill their obligation of fasting and other good deeds during the blessed month of Ramadan.  Read More...

Prosperity from our Lord: Laylat Al-Qadr Score: Comment Printer Friendly Send to a Friend Save as PDF Read More... 

We are approaching the end of Ramadan, that most auspicious and beautiful month where Muslims have helped one another and strengthened their relations of solidarity. We are about to complete another Ramadan that is the means for blessings, healing and prosperity.

And last night, we welcomed the Laylat Al-Qadr (Night of Power) which is made as better than a thousand months and when the Qur’an’s revelation started to our Prophet (peace be upon him) 1,400 years ago...

Every day of Ramadan is a feast, a blessing and beauty, a time of prosperity for the Muslims. It is an important means for gaining the good pleasure of God and healing. As it is known, the Qur’an was first revealed to our Prophet (peace be upon him) 1,400 years ago on the Laylat al-Qadr (Night of Power). For that reason, Laylat Al-Qadr has a distinct quality from the other days of Ramadan, and even the entire year. Our Lord informs us of this distinction by stating that the Night of Power is better than a thousand months.

The word “qadr” has various meanings like “power,” “glory,” “esteem.” “Qadeer” is also one of the names of God and indicates our Lord has “infinite power and creates what He wills.” Almighty God has also assigned this name to the Surat Al-Qadr in the Qur’an: “Truly We sent it down on the Night of Power. And what will convey to you what the Night of Power is? The Night of Power is better than a thousand months. In it the angels and the Spirit descend by their Lord’s authority with every ordinance. It is Peace until the coming of the dawn.” (Qur’an, 97:1-5) Read More...

The Custom of Imsaak Score: Comment Printer Friendly Send to a Friend Save as PDF Read More... 

Allah says: “It is made lawful for you to go in unto your wives on the night of the fast. They are your garments and ye are their garments. Allah is aware that you were deceiving yourselves in this respect and He has turned in mercy toward you and relieved you. So now associate with them and seek that which Allah has ordained for you. And eat and drink until the white thread becomes distinct to you from the black thread of the dawn. Then strictly observe the fast until nightfall, but do not associate with your wives while you are in retreat in the mosques. These are the limits imposed by Allah, so approach them not. Thus Allah expounds His revelation to mankind that they may ward off (evil).” [Sűrah ahl-Baqarah: 187]

This verse makes it clear that the time of the fast begins at dawn.

The timeframe for a day of fasting is the same all year round. It is the same whether the fast being observed is an obligatory fast or a voluntary one. That time is the time of true dawn – exactly the same as the time of the Fajr prayer – no earlier and no later. Read More...
