istijabah: a time when du’a is answered

Don’t forget sa’at al istijabah (a time when du’a is answered).

All you have to do is make dua before Maghrib! Note: It’s NOT ‘Salat’ (prayer), it’s Sa’at (time) of istijabah (response).

Jâbir (may Allah be pleased with him) relates that the Prophet Sall Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said: “Friday is comprised of twelve hours. There is one in which a Muslim who asks Allah for something will have it granted to him. Seek it in the last hour after `Asr.”

What’s up this month? Dhul Qa’dah

561363_592533757454610_600219659_nWhat’s up this month?

This month is called Dhul Qa’dah. [1]

Dhul Qa’dah is the eleventh month of the Islamic calendar. It falls between Shawwal and Dhul Hajjah.

It is one of the sacred months in which fighting was prohibited, though the Muslims were permitted to defend themselves if attacked. At the time of the Prophet (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) the enemies of Islam used to attack the Muslims, knowing that they attacked in a month where fighting was forbidden.  Read the rest of this entry

~*~55 Ways to Maintain a Happy Marriage~*

Marriage is a highly recommended Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (saw).

“And among His signs is that He created for you mates from among yourselves that you may dwell in tranquility with them, and He has put love and mercy between you; verily, in that are signs for people who reflect.” (Qur’an, 30:21)

“And marry those among you that are single and (also marry) the Salihun (pious, fit and capable ones) of your (male) slaves and maid-servants (female slaves). If they be poor Allah will enrich them out of His bounty. And Allah is All-Sufficient for His creatures’ needs, All-Knowing (about the state of the people).” [(Qur’an, 24:32) Read the rest of this entry

“Being in society but not “of society”

“Being in society but not “of society”. Today, the Muslim Ummah needs Believers who are part of their societies but stand out with their character; people who are known by others but not pulled into corrupt trends, people who others can identify with in a positive way and by their sincerity, patience and genuine caring, can even influence their enemies! Look how Almighty Allah has given to this bird the ability to blend in with his environment but still be distinct!!!”

Position of Jesus (pbuh) in Islam:

(i)Islam is the only non-Christian faith, which makes it an article of faith to believe in Jesus (pbuh). No Muslim is a Muslim if he does not believe in Jesus (pbuh).

(ii) We believe that he was one of the mightiest Messengers of Allah (swt).

(iii) We believe that he was born miraculously, without any male intervention, which many modern day Christians do not believe.

(iv) We believe he was the Messiah translated Christ (pbuh).

(v) We believe that he gave life to the dead with God’s permission.

(iv) We believe that he healed those born blind, and the lepers with God’s permission.

Tips to Combat Memory Loss

It is human nature to be forgetful, as the Arab poet said:

“He is only called man (insaan) because of his forgetfulness (nasiyaan), and it is only called the heart (al-qalb) because it changes so rapidly (yataqallib).”

In the past they said that the first one to forget (awwal naasin) was the first man (awwal al-naas), meaning Adam, peace be upon him. Forgetfulness is something that varies from person to person according to each individual’s nature; some may be more forgetful than others. Some of the things that may help to combat forgetfulness are the following: Read the rest of this entry

The power of Istighfar

720_10151594707767027_441860913_n
This story about “Istighfar” is from the life
of Imam Ahmed Bin Hanbal, who is
considered as a renowned scholar of Islam
and a famous theologian. Imam Ahmed is
also considered to be the founder of the
Hanbali school of fiqh (Islamic jurisprudence) and is one of the most
celebrated Sunni theologians, often
referred to as the “Sheikh ul-Islam” or the
“Imam of Ahl al-Sunnah.” During his old age, while Imam Ahmed was
travelling he stopped by a town. After the
prayers, he wanted to stay for the night in
the masjid yard because he didn’t know
anyone in the town. Owing to his humility,
he hadn’t introduced himself to anyone thinking that if he did, he would be
welcomed by many people. Failing to recognize Ahmed bin Hanbal, the
caretaker of the mosque refused to let him
stay in the mosque. As Imam Ahmed was
quite old, the caretaker had to drag him
out of the mosque. On seeing this, a baker
from a nearby place felt pity for this man (Imam Ahmed) and offered to be the host
to him for the night. During his stay with
the baker, Imam Ahmed observed that the
baker would constantly recite Istighfar
(seek forgiveness from Allah). Imam
Ahmed asked the baker if the constant practice of saying Istighfar had any effect
on him. The baker responded by telling
Imam Ahmed that Allah had accepted all of
his duas (supplications), except one. When
he asked him what dua was it that hadn’t
been accepted, the baker replied that he had been asking Allah to provide him the
privilege to meet the famous scholar Imam
Ahmed bin Hanbal. On this, Imam Ahmed bin Hanbal said that
Allah had not only listened to his dua but
had dragged him onto his (the baker’s)
doorsteps. [Summarized from Al Jumuah
magazine, vol 19, issue 7] This story is a reminder of the power of
saying Istighfar (seeking forgiveness)
frequently. Let’s remember that the
prophet used to say Istighfar frequently
during the day. Tafseer Al-Qurtubi states: A man complained to Al-Hasan about a
drought, and he said to him: “Pray to Allah
for forgiveness.” Another man complained
to him of poverty and he said to him: “Pray
to Allah to forgive you.” Another man said
to him: “Pray to Allah to bless me with a child.” He said: “Pray to Allah for
forgiveness.” Another complained to him
that his garden was dry. He said to him:
“Pray to Allah for forgiveness.” He was asked about it and he said: “This is
not my personal opinion, for Allah says in
Surah Nooh (interpretation of the
meaning):‘Ask forgiveness from your Lord,
verily, He is Oft Forgiving; He will send rain
to you in abundance. And give you increase in wealth and children, and bestow on you
gardens and bestow on you rivers.” Tafseer
Al-Qurtubi (18/301-302) One of the narrators of a Hadith was asked
about the manner in which forgiveness is
to be sought, to which he answered: “The
Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa
sallam) used to say: ‘Astaghfirullah!
Astaghfirullah! (I beseech Allah for forgiveness, I beseech Allah for
forgiveness)’.” [Sahih Muslim].

Rasoolullah (Sall Allahu ‘alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallim) then advised him to continue reciting them for he would never read any Surahs that are parallel (in beauty and excellence) to these two.

before sleep ..

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) when going to bed, he recited this prayer:
“Bismika’llahumma ahya wa amut: O my Allah! I die with your name, and I am born with your name (sleep, wake up)”.

After he woke up, he recited the following prayer: “Alhamdulillahilladhi ahyana ba‘da ma amatana wa ilayhi’n-nushur: All the Praises are for Allah Who has made us alive after He made us die (sleep) and unto Him is the Resurrection”.
(Tirmidhi, Daawat 28; see Bukhari, Daawat 7; Muslim, Dhikr 59)

Never think your alone!

Imam Ahmad (rahimahullaah) used to say: “If you are alone one day, do not say ‘I am alone’, but say ‘There is an All Watcher with me’

Never think that Allaah is unaware even for an hour or that hidden things are not known to Him.”

BBC Has been worked (published) more favorabily to Israel

” … In one, he asked BBC colleagues to word their stories in a way which does not blame or “put undue emphasis” on Israel for starting the prolonged attacks. Instead, he encouraged journalists to promote the Israeli government line that the “offensive” was “aimed at ending rocket fire from Gaza.”
This was despite the fact that Israel broke a ceasefire when it attacked Gaza on 14 November, a ceasefire which the Palestinians had been observing — firing no rockets into Israel

In a second email, sent during the same period, Berg told BBC journalists: “Please remember, Israel doesn’t maintain a blockade around Gaza. Egypt controls the southern border.” He omitted to mention that the UN viewed Israel as the occupying power in Gaza and has called on Israel to end its siege of the Strip. Israel’s refusal to do so is a violation of UN Security Council Resolution 1860 … ” Read the rest of this entry
