Witr prayer is one of the greatest acts of worship that draw one closer to Allaah. Some of the scholars – the Hanafis – even thought that it is one of the obligatory prayers, but the correct view is that it is one of the confirmed Sunnah.
Imam Ahmad (may Allah have mercy on him) said: Whoever neglects Witr is a bad man whose testimony should not be accepted.
It starts when a person has prayed ‘Isha’, even if it is joined to Maghrib at the time of Maghrib, and lasts until dawn begins, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Allaah has prescribed for you a prayer (by which He may increase your reward), which is Witr; Allaah has enjoined it for you during the time between ‘Isha’ prayer until dawn begins.” Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, classed as saheeh by al-Albaani.

One of the 3 fundamental issues that Islaam and Christianity disagree about is the original sin of Adam. The Noble Qur’aan describes the event of the creation of Adam, his sin and its outcome in various places in the Noble Qur’aan.

1. Ibn Abbas (RA) said: The Prophet (SAW) used to seek refuge with Allah for Hasan and Husayn, and he said: “Your father (Ibraheem) used to seek refuge with (these words) for Ismaa‘eel and Ishaaq:
A‘oodhu bi kalimaat Illaahi’t-taammah min kulli shaytaanin wa haammah wa min kulli ‘aynin laammah.”
(I seek refuge in the perfect words of Allaah from every devil and every vermin, and from every bad eye)

Every believer has a desire to visit the Blessed Grave of Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) during his life time. Some even spend their entire earning just to have a glimpse of it. But unfortunately some people from the minority sect have started corrupting the innocent minds of the Muslim Ummah and thereby misleading them with false information. These extremists declare the act of traveling to visit the Blessed Grave of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) as Biddah (bad Innovation) and Haraam. This was propagated by Ibn Taymiyyah whose verdict Imam Ibn Hajr al Asqalani (rh) rightly refutes.

In 1500 the Spanish writer Garci Rodríguez de Montalvo wrote a book about a Muslim warrior queen known as Califia. Her name originates from the Arabic word “Khalifah”, meaning leader, which was pronounced “Califa” in Spanish. Montalvo named the land she ruled “California”, meaning “Land of Califia”
When the Spanish explored the Baja California coast in the mid-1500s, they thought the land resembled the mythical California mentioned in Montalvo’s novel, and the name #California stuck
Ibn ‘Abbas reported that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) was the most generous of people in charity, but he was generous to the utmost in the month of Ramadan. Gabriel (peace be upon him) would meet him every year during the month of Ramadan until it ended, and Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) recited to him the Qur’an; and when Gabriel met him Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) was most generous in giving charity like the blowing wind. Muslim (Book #030, Hadith #5718)
A lot of people have trouble balancing the love of the Creator and the love of the creation. It is something I myself have struggled with much of my life. On the one extreme, there are people who love the creation as they should only love the Creator. On the other extreme, there are those who reject the love of the creation all together. I think the correct balance is to understand it this way: We have only one Owner over our hearts. That Owner is God. But our hearts also yearn for companionship. The heart searches for its’ companion in the creation. And finding that companion of our heart is one of God’s greatest gifts to us. It is the ‘coolness of the eyes’ that the Quran speaks about. The problem is when we confuse *Ownership* and *companionship*. We take the creation as Owners and take the Creator as only a companion. And God knows best.~Yasmin Mogahed

One of the burning issues these days in Canada and in all Western countries is that of Abortion. In the absence of a specific law on abortion, the provincial governments are, in fact, groping in the dark. One court in Ontario allowed a woman to have abortion. The interesting thing, however, is that on her way out of the court, she announced that she already had abortion but she repented for doing so simply because she returned back to her boy-friend. So she no more supports the pro-abortion campaign in Canada. This statement was hailed by what is called pro-lifers in North America.
Another woman from Quebec, called Chantal Daigle, asked the court there to allow her have abortion of her 21 week pregnancy. The court prevented her from doing so. The woman, however, insisted and defied the court’s judgment. She did have abortion. Not only this but she resorted to the Supreme Court to change that decision. The Supreme Court gave its approval and repealed the prevention decision.
In the light of the above, it may be asked here: What is the attitude of Islam towards the issue of abortion? Is it true that women have full control over their bodies and they can have abortion anytime they wish? Or does Islam agree with those who say: “No, the fetus is a human being and has full human rights”? It has the right to live and to be protected. So it is a crime to have abortion? How does Islam look at this issue?

O you who believe! Do your duty to Allah, seek the means of approach to Him, and strive with might and main in His cause: that you may prosper.”
[Holy Quran 5:35]
It is narrated on the authority of Abu Hurayrah (Radiya Allahu anhu) that the Messenger of Allah (Salla Allahu alaihi wa sallam) related the following words from Allah The Almighty:
“Whosoever shows enmity to a friend of Mine, I shall be at war with him. My servant does not draw near to Me with anything more loved by Me than the religious duties I have imposed upon him, and My servant continues to draw near to Me with the supererogatory works so that I shall love him. When I love him I am his hearing with which he hears, his seeing with which he sees, his hand with which he strikes, and his foot with which he walks. Were he to ask (something) of Me, I would surely grant him it.”
Just as a farmer needs to make an effort to prepare the land for plantation by clearing the shrubs & weeds, then softeni…ng the soil & tilling it, planting the seeds & ensuring the proper irrigation and fumigation etc until the day of harvest, we too need to prepare for the month of fasting by leaving all sin, softening our hearts, increase our acts of worship etc. Without this we would not reap the fruits of this month.

“Say: ‘Shall we tell you of those who lose most in respect of their deeds? Those whose efforts have been wasted in this life, while they thought that they were acquiring good by their works.”
[Holy Quran 18:103/104]
“The greatest of these things we waste are two, upon which are founded all other wasted things: the waste of the heart, and the waste of time. Wasting of the heart is to prefer the world over the Hereafter; and wasting of time is to have too much hope. Every corruption is found in the following of desires and having too much hope; and every benefit is found in the following of the guidance and preparing for the meeting with Allah; and Allah’s help is sought.”
The evolution of Turkey in the early 1900s is one of the most baffling cultural and social changes in Islamic history. In a few short years, the Ottoman Empire was brought down from within, stripped of its Islamic history, and devolved into a new secular nation known as Turkey. The consequences of this change are still being felt today throughout the Muslim world, and especially in a very polarized and ideologically segmented Turkey.
What caused this monumental change in Turkish government and society? At the center of it all is Mustafa Kemal, better known as Atatürk. Through his leadership in the 1920s and 1930s, modern secular Turkey was born, and Islam took a backseat in Turkish society.
… Muhammad (c. 570 – 632) The Prophet of Islam. He is depicted holding the Qur’an. The Qur’an provides the primary source of Islamic Law. Prophet Muhammad’s teachings explain and implement Qur’anic principles. The figure above is a well-intentioned attempt by the sculptor, Adolph Weinman, to honor Muhammad, and it bears no resemblance to Muhammad. Muslims generally have a strong aversion to sculptured or pictured representations of their Prophet.
In the year in which the frieze of Prophet Muhammad was erected, Franklin D. Roosevelt was president, and Charles Evans Hughes was the Chief Justice. It is not known how the court deliberated on this architectural contribution. No one at that time thought it inappropriate to include Prophet Muhammad as one of the greatest lawgivers of the world at the chambers of the United States Supreme Court. This was despite the fact that American society at that time was not as diverse as it is today. Women had just acquired the right to vote, and Japanese-Americans were about to be sent to concentration camps.
BUT GOD DECLARED THE NAME OF HIS RELIGION IS “ISLAM”

The following are some of the things that negate Tawheed or cause deficiencies in it, as the scholars have mentioned. It is presented here for you so that you may beware of them.
1. Wearing a ring or string of any type, whether it is made of brass, copper, iron, or leather, with the intent of removing some ailment or protecting against something. Indeed this is a form of shirk.
2. Prayer formulas (or incantations) that are innovated or written and worn. The prayer formulas (or incantations) that are innovated include talismans, unintelligible words, seeking help from the jinns in learning the cause of the illness, undoing magic (that is done to someone) with the help of Jinns, and using written formulas. These written formulas are hung on the person or animal with thread or string. It makes no difference whether it contains innovated words that are written that have not come from the Qur’an and Sunnah, or words that do come from the Qur’aan and Sunnah. This is because hanging written formulas like this is one of the causes that lead to Shirk.
The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said “Verily, Ar-Ruqa (incantations containing shirk), At-Tama’im (written formulas that are worn), and At-Tiwalah (spells that make people fall in love) are all Shirk.” (Ahmad and Abu Dawood) Read the rest of this entry
1. Oneness of God
A Muslim believes in ONE GOD, Supreme and Eternal, Infinite and Mighty, Merciful and Compassionate, Creator and Provider. God has no father or mother, no son or daughter. None is equal to Him. He is God of all humankind, not of a… special tribe or race.
God is High and Supreme but He is very near to the pious thoughtful believers; He answers their prayers and helps them. He loves the people who love Him and forgives their sins. He gives them peace, happiness, knowledge and success. God is the Loving and the Provider, the Generous, and the Benevolent, the Rich and the Independent, the Forgiving and the Clement, the Patient and the Appreciative, the Unique and the Protector, the Judge and the Peace. Many of these attributes of God are mentioned in the Quran.
God creates in humans the mind to understand, the soul and conscience to be good and righteous, the feelings and sentiments to be kind and humane. If we try to count His favors upon us, we cannot, because they are countless. In return for all the great favors and mercy, God does not need anything from us, because He is Needless and Independent. God asks us to know Him, to love Him and to enforce His law for our benefit and our own good.
Allaah says: “And let not those who hold back miserly from giving that which Allaah has bestowed on them from His Bounty think that it is good for them. Nay, it will be worse for them. The things that they held back from giving will be tied to their necks like a collar on the Day of Recompense. And to Allaah belongs the heritage of the heavens and the earth, and Allaah is well-Aware of a…ll that you do.” [Surah Aali ‘Imraan: 180]
Narrated ‘Adi bin Hatim(R A) heard the Prophet(SAWS) saying:
“Save yourself from Hell-fire even by giving half a date-fruit in charity.”
[Bukhari :: Book 24 :: Volume 2 :: Hadith 498 ]

Zakat is one of the five pillars of Islam. It has been mentioned, along with daily Prayers (Salaat / Namaz), over seventy times in the Qur’an. Allaah’s word commanding “…..and establish regular Salaat and give regular Zakat…..” are referred to in many parts of the Qur’an. From this we can conclude that after Salaat, Zakat is the most important act in Islam.
Charity towards man, in the …widest sense of the word, is the cornerstone of the Islamic society and a constant theme in the Qur’anic teachings. There are two kinds of charities in Islam:
– the obligatory and the voluntary. The obligatory charity is called Zakat while the voluntary charity is called Sadaqah.
Linguistically, Zakat has two meanings: purification and growth. Technically, it means to purify one’s possession of wealth by distributing a prescribed amount to the poor, the indigent, the slaves or captives, and the wayfarer.
The proceeds of Zakat are supposed to be devoted towards:
*Relieving poverty and distress
*Helping those in debt
*Providing comfort and convenience for travellers
*Providing stipends for scholarships
*Providing ransom for prisoners of war
*Propagation of Islam
*Meeting the expenses for the collection of zakat
*Other things beneficial for the society Read the rest of this entry
When a woman wears perfume, the ruling depends on the situation:
1 – Using perfume for the husband. This is mustahabb and recommended, because it is part of treating him kindly, and it helps to increase love between the spouses, when each of them pays attention to what the other likes. Al-Mannaawi said in Fayd al-Qadeer (3/190): As for putting on perfume and adorning herself for her husband, it is required and is something that is liked.
One of the wise men said: For a woman to adorn herself and put on perfume for her husband is one of the strongest causes of love and affection between them, and wards off dislike and disdain, because the eye is the pioneer of the heart; if the eye looks at something attractive, the message will reach his heart and love will be created, but if it looks at something ugly or that it does not like of outfits or
garments, that that message will reach the heart and dislike and disdain will be created. Hence the advice that Arab women gave to one another was: Beware of letting your husband see anything that does not please him or letting him smell anything from you that he finds off-putting. End quote.
2 – Putting on perfume and going out with the aim of letting non-mahram men smell it. This is haraam, and is a major sin. It was narrated from Abu Moosa (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “If a woman puts on perfume and passes by people so that they can smell her fragrance, then she is such and such,” and he spoke sternly – meaning an adulteress. Narrated by Abu Dawood (4173) and al-Tirmidhi (2786); classed
as saheeh by Ibn Daqeeq al-Eid in al- Iqtiraah (126) and by Shaykh al- Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi. al-Mannaawi said in Fayd al-Qadeer (1/355): “She is an adulteress” means: because of that she is exposed to zina, and implementing the means that lead to it and calling those who seek it. Hence she is called an adulteress in a metaphorical sense, because desire may prevail and real zina may take place. Her passing by men is likened to her sitting in their path so that they pass by her. End quote.
3 – If she puts on perfume and goes out, and thinks it most likely that she will pass by a group in which there will be men who will smell her perfume and fragrance, this is also haraam, even if she does not intend to tempt men and that is not her aim, because this action is a fitnah (temptation) in and of itself. There is also an indication in sharee’ah that it is haraam and not allowed. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “And tell the believing women to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts) and not to show off their adornment except only that which is apparent (like both eyes for necessity to see the way, or outer palms of hands or one eye or dress like veil, gloves, headcover, apron), and to draw their veils all over Juyoobihinna (i.e. their bodies, faces, necks and bosoms) and not to reveal their adornment except to their husbands, or their fathers, or their husband’s fathers, or their sons, or their husband’s sons, or their brothers or their brother’s sons, or their sister’s sons, or their (Muslim) women (i.e. their sisters in Islâm), or the (female) slaves whom their right hands possess, or old male servants who lack vigour, or small children who have no sense of feminine sex. And let them not stamp their feet so as to reveal what they hide of their adornment. And all of you beg Allaah to forgive you all, O believers, that you may be successful” [al-Noor 24:31] So women are forbidden to show their adornments to non-mahram men, and perfume is undoubtedly one of the woman’s adornments, so it is included in this prohibition. And it was narrated that Zaynab, the wife of ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Mas’ood, said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said to us: “If one of you attends the mosque, let her not put on perfume.” Narrated by Muslim (443). If the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) forbade women to go out to the mosque wearing perfume, because men will usually smell some of the fragrance because of close proximity and there being no barrier between men and woman, then it is more likely that women are not allowed to go out to the marketplace and gatherings wearing perfume, although it is not regarded as a major sin, rather it is something that is clearly haraam. Ibn Hajar al-Haytami said in al-Zawaajir ‘an Iqtiraab al-Kabaa’ir (2/71-72): The ahaadeeth which count it as a major sin should be interpreted as meaning that this applies if the fitnah is
certainly there; when there is merely the fear of fitnah, then it is makrooh, or when she thinks it will cause fitnah then it is haraam but is not a major sin, as is obvious. End quote. See also the answer to question no. 7850 4 – When she puts on perfume and thinks it most likely that her fragrance will not
reach people and that men will not smell any of it, such as if she is going out in her husband’s car on a trip to an
isolated place, or to visit her family, or she is going out in her husband’s car to a gathering for women only, or she is going to the mosque in the car and she is going to get out at the entrance to the prayer-hall that is for women only and is completely separate from the men, then she is going to come straight back in the car without walking in the street, and other such situations where the woman does not expect to pass through the streets and
her aim in putting on perfume is to keep herself clean in general as enjoined by sharee’ah. In that case there is nothing wrong with her using perfume, because the reason for the prohibition, which is that the fragrance
might reach other men, does not apply. The evidence for that is as follows: (i) The apparent reason for the prohibition in the evidence quoted above does not apply in this case, so there is no fitnah and there is no provocation of desire. (ii) In Sunnah there is an indication that the womenfolk of the Sahaabah used to use perfume when they thought it most likely that it would not be smelt by men. It was narrated that ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) said: We used to go out with the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) to Makkah, and we would apply perfume to our foreheads when entering ihraam, then if one of us sweated it would run down her face, and the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) would see it but he would not rebuke her. Narrated by Abu Dawood (1830) and classed as hasan by al-Nawawi in al- Majmoo’ (7/219) and as saheeh by al- Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood. This is to be understood in the light of the conditions that were known in earlier times, when the caravan of women was separate from that of men, or the woman would be in her howdah and did not mix with men or pass by the places where they were. Shaykh ‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in Majmoo’ al-Fataawa (10/40): It is permissible for her to apply perfume if she is going out to a place of women and is not going to pass by men in the street. End quote. It says in Jalasaat Ramadaaniyyah (1415/al-Majlis al-Khaamis/Majmoo’at As’ilah tuhimm al-Usrah) by Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him): But if the woman is going to ride in the car and her fragrance will only be apparent to those before whom she may show the fragrance, and she will exit the car and go straight to her workplace without there being any men around her, then there is nothing wrong with it, because there is nothing haraam involved. When she is in her car it is as if she is in her house. But if she is going to pass by men then it is not permissible for her to wear perfume. End quote. If an emergency arises in which some men happen to smell the perfume of this woman, because of a car accident, for example, or a sudden illness because of which she is taken to the hospital and the like, then this is something that is forgiven, in sha Allah, because Allaah does not burden any soul beyond its scope and the shar’i ruling is to be followed in cases where one has the choice, not in cases of necessity. And Allaah knows best.

أَرَءَيْتَ مَنِ اتَّخَذَ إِلَـهَهُ هَوَاهُ
Have you seen him who takes his low desires for his god? [Surat al-Jathiyah, 45:23 and Surat Al-Furqan, 77:43]
At these two places in the Qur’an ALL…AH SWT, Has drawn our attention to a very important matter.
The point to remember here is that if any desires, that become more important to fulfill in one’s life and they hinder in obeying what ALLAH has commanded, then it is like making these desires equal to ALLAH. It is ALLAH’s Right to be obeyed and worshipped alone, because He is the Lord of His Creation. Ignoring and not giving the due standing to the Orders of ALLAH and placing what one wishes, above it, is like making partners with ALLAH. Read the rest of this entry
Born in the Surat distric of India in 1918, Ahmed Hoosen Deedat had no recollection of his father until 1926. His father a tailor by profes…sion had emigrated to South Africa shortly after the birth of Ahmed Deedat.

PREPARING PHYSICALLY FOR RAMADAN:
Over the next couple weeks start to decrease the amount of times you eat per day. It can be a shock for the body to go from eating 5-6 times a day to only twice (sahoor and iftar). So not that we are a less than 40 days a way from fasting, start to reduce your 5 times to 3 times a day. That will still allow you to maintain a steady metabolism while tapering off to get the body ready for Ramadan.
