Sister Zohra Sarwari will be talking on “How the Qur’aan saved my Life and My Children’s Life!” In sha Allah
Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, I will be giving a lecture at the end of this month in CT in’sha’Allaah. If your in the area please do come out! Title is “How the Qur’aan saved my Life and My Children’s Life!”
We often forget that scholars are just human beings who happen to be experts in their fields. Why are they considered experts? Like any position they are considered the experts because they have put in time, effort and through action have shown that they are sincere about the pursuit of truth. For me the character of a Scholar is far more important than what he actually knows. The reason is that I know an individual who has proven to have the best of character is going to be as honest as possible in his approach to learning and sharing knowledge.

“By the mercy of Almighty God, Allah, and the hard work of the Muslim brothers and sisters of the North, the groundbreaking and pillings for the first Masjid of the Northeast Canadian Province of Nunavut has been completed, al Hamdulillah. Official permission for the masjid has been obtained and the local elders and authorities have given their blessings. The site will be covered till the snow comes off in June but this foundation will enable us to build the Islamic Center of Iqaluit in the land of the Innuit people (wrongly called Eskimos) for the first time. May Allah empower the Innuit people through Islam and bring into them into the Ummah in crowds.
You can still be a part of the project by sending our donations to:http://www.iqaluitmasjid.com.
All are welcome to the Arctic “in the summer” to our opening ceremony, Insha Allah. The Light of Allah will never be extinguished! “Nurun ‘ala Nur (Light upon light) will shine forever even though those who reject God despise it, Al Hamdulillah!!!”

Man plays for Chelsea, makes millions a year ما شاء الله but prays at the FRONT of the masjid when it’s jummuah, he doesn’t fail to pray fajr and isha in the masjid whether he has a game or not! In fact when he scored the winning goal against Manchester United in a final in the afternoon he still made it to the masjid for Maghrib when everyone else was most likely partying. Oh, and he helps out with the youth every now and again…
My young brothers… Here is a true inspiration in this day and age, his name as you have probably clocked by now… Is Br Demba Ba
Oh and don’t ask me what masjid this is. You will never know lol
I’m only sharing this with you coz it’s a TRUUUUUE inspiration ما شاء الله. Make dua for him and learn from him . Allah SWT has given him the dunya… Yet he didn’t sell that for his akhirah

Khalid bin Al-Waleed was one of the greatest generals in history, and one of the greatest heroes of Islam. Besides him, Genghis Khan was the only other general to remain undefeated in his entire military life….

The Erdogan You Don’t Know No doubt Recep Erdogan is the most successful leader so far after the fall of Ottoman caliphate. His party, the AKP (Adalet ve Kalkınma Partisi, the Justice and Development Party), won its third consecutive election in June 2011, securing approximately 50% of the vote. During his term, Turkey has seen unprecedented economic growth, constitutional reform, Islamisation and a re-emergence as a major global power. This success added to his personal charisma and hard-work have made Turkey a model to emulate for many Muslim countries. Under his watch Turkey has become the 16th largest economy in the world and a member of the G20. Realising a decades-old objective amid protest from the secular opposition, Erdogan has pushed through a reform today that favours the Quranic institutions, introduces an hour of Muslim religious instruction and exposes girls to danger of being kept at home away from school. Under Erdogan’s rule Masjids and Madrasas re- opened. Many no longer felt the need to hide the fact that they prayed Jumuah from coworkers and employers. Life got better in Turkey in many ways. The hyper-secular Attaturk Kemalists remained in a state of paranoid alert for the most part, screaming bloody murder anytime the AK Party did anything that could be considered vaguely religious. After almost a century of kemalsim he has a mammoth of a task before him. He may not be perfect but he is certainly a breath of fresh air for Muslims.
Paul Walker (the actor from the ‘Fast and the Furious’ movies) passed away earlier today and this was the state of the car that he died in. There are some lessons we can learn from his death. One of the main lessons is that you will die the way you lived your life. So if you live your life in the fast lane, you will also die in the fast lane.
If you live your life by the gun you will also die by the gun. If you live a righteous life, Allah Azzawajal will in His infinite Mercy give you a righteous death. Many people think these celebrities are untouchable but the reality is different. I bet he was looking forward to the release of his new ‘Fast and the Furious’ film next year, without thinking he may be dead by then. Most of us do the same thing, we think about the future and ignore the fact that we may pass away before our plans become a reality. Only Allah Azzawajal knows how long we have left in this world.
Many of us may not be alive next week and that is the honest truth. So make the most of every minute you have in this world and do as much as you can for your Akhirah because as you can see from the picture, all it takes is a wrong turn of the steering wheel and you are gone. 55.”And follow the best of that which is sent down to you from your Lord (i.e. this Qur’an, do what it orders you to do and keep away from what it forbids), before the torment comes on you suddenly while you perceive not!” 56. Lest a person should say: “Alas, my grief that I was undutiful to Allah (i.e. I have not done what Allah has ordered me to do), and I was indeed among those who mocked [at the truth! i.e. La ilaha ill-Allah (none has the right to be worshipped but Allah), the Qur’an, and Muhammad and at the faithful believers, etc.] 57. Or (lest) he should say: “If only Allah had guided me, I should indeed have been among the Muttaqun (pious and righteous persons – see V.2:2).” 58. Or (lest) he should say when he sees the torment: “If only I had another chance (to return to the world) then I should indeed be among the Muhsinun (good-doers – see V.2:112).” 59. Yes! Verily, there came to you My Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) and you denied them, and were proud and were among the disbelievers. Surah Zumar (55-59) SHARE! A GREAT REMINDER
The ancient Greeks thought our eyes emitted rays, like a laser, which enabled us to see. The first person to realise that light enters the eye, rather than leaving it, was the 10th-century Muslim mathematician, astronomer and physicist Ibn al-Haitham. He invented the first pin-hole camera after noticing the way light came through a hole in window shutters. The smaller the hole, the better the picture, he worked out, and set up the first Camera Obscura (from the Arab word qamara for a dark or private room). He is also credited with being the first man to shift physics from a philosophical activity to an experimental one.
Biography of Imam Muslim
Compiler of Sahih Muslim
As his nisbah shows, Imaam Muslim belonged to the Qushayr tribe of the Arabs, an offshoot of the mighty clan of Rabee’ah. His tribe had taken an important part in the history of Islaam after the death of the Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him). Haydah of Qushayr is mentioned in the Isabah as one of the companions, while Qurra Ibn Hubayrah, another Qushayree, was appointed by the Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) as walee in charge of the alms of his people. Ziyaad Ibn â€˜Abdur-Rahmaan al-Qushayree is said to have killed a vast number of Byzantine troopers at the Battle of the Yarmook, in which he lost one of his legs. Read the rest of this entry
Al-Zahrawi or Albucasis was an Arab Muslim physician .
He has been described by many as the father of modern surgery.
His greatest contribution to medicine is the Kitab al-Tasrif, a thirty-volume encyclopedia of medical practices.

When learning about the Muslim scholars of the past, it is easy to be amazed by their brilliance, accomplishments, and contributions to the modern world. Each provided a lasting legacy that changed the world in their time and today. One scientist in particular stands far above the rest. He is Ibn al-Haytham, the great polymath who lived from 965 to 1040.
He was born in the Iraqi city of Basra during the Abbasid Caliphate. He came about 100 years after the establishment of the House of Wisdom in Baghdad. Undoubtedly the culture of learning and advancement present in the Muslim world at that time had a great impact on him from an early age. He studied Islamic sciences and soon became a mayor of the city of Basra. During this time, he continued to study, focusing on sciences and other empirical subjects. His big break, however, would come in another part of the Muslim world. Read the rest of this entry
