To 'Perform' or to 'Establish' Prayers? . Score: Comment Printer Friendly Send to a Friend Save as PDF Read More... 

No one can deny the importance of as-Salah as it is one of the things emphatically or unequivocally known to be part of the faith of Islam. However, though most of us realize this fact, do all of us establish or properly perform the as-Salah as it is prescribed by Allah the Almighty? Or, it is we just make some lifeless movements and utter some repeated utterances without being heedful of what is said or what is done?!

Here, we will show the real difference between establishing the as-Salah as ordained by Allah and just doing its movements; a matter which is crucial and necessary for a faithful Muslim’s as-Salah to be accepted by Allah the Almighty. Surely, no one wants his as-Salah to be unaccepted or rejected.

Iqamat as-Salah in the Qur’an

Establishing or properly performing the prayer is the alternative translations of the Arabic term iqamat as-Salah. Amazingly, the Ever-Glorious Qur’an always uses the collocation or word combination ‘iqamat as-Salah’ in various forms and derivations. Read More...

Paying Attention to Our Children  Score: Comment Printer Friendly Send to a Friend Save as PDF Read More...

When we pay attention to our children, we learn a lot.

When a child exhibits aggressive or rebellious behavior, it is an act of self-assertion. When a child destroys an object, it may just be an act of exploration or play. Crying and shouting are a child’s arsenal used to get what is needed from parents.

When a small girl winds her hair around her finger, or puts her hair in her mouth, or stutters when she speaks, they are signs that she is under stress and unable to express in words what she is causing her distress. She may be scared for herself or for someone she loves.

The reason for the child’s distress needs to be uncovered in a calm manner. The child should be reassured of the parents’ love and support. Everything should be done to keep the child’s anxieties form becoming deep-seated, which will have negative implications for education and future social development.

Whether they are passive, obedient, nervous, or rebellious, all children have a tremendous capacity to learn, which is greater than at any other time in their lives. These are the formative years, and it is critical to instil good habits in our children. Read More...

Using Scripture for Our Own Petty Ends  Score: Comment Printer Friendly Send to a Friend Save as PDF Read More... 
islam and muslims
A woman was chairing a conference. One of the male participants found her infuriating, especially the way she was involved in the details of the proceedings, regulated the time of the speakers, the seating arrangements, summarily concluded difficult points of the discussion, and was pretentious in her attempts at Arabic fluency.

When it came time for him to speak, he blurted out: "A people will not succeed who put a woman in charge of their affairs!"

Now, our purpose right now is not to discuss the meaning of this hadîth or the rulings that are derived from it. What concerns us is the way this man used a hadîth to vent his personal frustrations. Is it right to take cheap shots at others using the words of the Prophet (peace be upon him)?

On another occasion, a man had a disagreement with his friend – who was also his cousin and neighbor – over a money issue. They had been involved in some business venture that failed. A lot of money was lost and a lot of big hopes when up in smoke. Sadly, the two men had a falling out over it. Read More...

Dear God Score: Comment Printer Friendly Send to a Friend Save as PDF Read More... 


Dear God,

I feel really dumb writing out things you already know. But it helps me understand how I am feeling, because things get really jumbled up inside me sometimes.

So, as you know, I am dealing with something and I do not know the severity of it. It could be very simple. Or not. But nonetheless it is making me very anxious and timid. You would think after being tested for years now I would be stronger in my faith and surer of myself, but sometimes I can't find that strength.

I wonder if this is just one of those downhill trips I have to go through in order to go uphill again...

I really believe that coincidences do not run this world, but some days I find it so hard to accept things, more so than I do on other days.

Some days I just believe so strongly that I can storm through and look past it all.... Other days it weighs me down so much that I can't even sleep. Read More...

The Mathematician who Challenged the Quran Score: Comment Printer Friendly Send to a Friend Save as PDF Read More... 

Dr Gary Miller (Now Dr Abdul Ahad) was a very active missionary and was very knowledgeable about the Bible. This man likes mathematics so much, that's why he likes logic. One day, he decided to read the Qur'an to try to find any mistakes that he might take advantage of while inviting Muslims to convert to Christianity. He expected the Qur'an to be an old book written 14 centuries ago, a book that talks about the desert and so on. He was amazed from what he found.

He discovered that this Book had what no other book in the world has. He expected to find some stories about the hard time that the Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) had, like the death of his wife Khadijah (may Allah be pleased with her) or the death of his sons and daughters.

However, he did not find anything like that. And what made him even more confused is that he found a full "Sura" (chapter) in the Qur'an named "Mary" that contains a lot of respect to Mary (peace be upon her) which is not the case even in the books written by Christians nor in their Bibles. He did not find a Sura named after "Fatimah"(the prophet's daughter) nor "Aishah" (the Prophet's wife), may Allah (God) be pleased with both of them. Read More...

Adiyy Ibn Hatim At-Taai: the epitome of generosity Score: Comment Printer Friendly Send to a Friend Save as PDF Read More... 
Prophet saws

In the ninth year of the Hijrah, an Arab king made the first positive moves to Islam after years of feeling hatred for it. He drew closer to faith (iman) after opposing and combating it. And he finally pledged allegiance to the Prophet, peace be on him, after his adamant refusal to do so.

He was Adiyy, son of the famous Hatim at-Taai who was known far and wide for his chivalry and fabulous generosity. Adiyy inherited the domain of his father and was confirmed in the position by the Tayy people. Part of his strength lay in the fact that a quarter of any amount they obtained as booty from raiding expeditions had to be given to him.

When the Prophet announced openly his call to guidance and truth and Arabs from one region after another accepted his teachings, Adiyy saw in his mission a threat to his position and leadership. Although he did not know the Prophet personally, and had never seen him, he developed strong feelings of enmity towards him. He remained antagonistic to Islam for close upon twenty years until at last God opened his heart to the religion of truth and guidance.

The way in which Adiyy became a Muslim is a remarkable story and he is perhaps the best person to relate it. He said:

"There was no man among the Arabs who detested God's Messenger, may God bless him and grant him peace, more than I, when I heard about him. I was then a man of status and nobility. I was a Christian. From my people I took a fourth of their booty as was the practice of other Arab kings. Read More...
