WHO ARE THE MUTTAQUN?

In the Name of Allāh. The Muttaqun are the believers. Allāh describes them (in Surah Al-Baqarah [2] verses 3-4) saying: “Who believe in the Ghayb and perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat), and spend out of what we have provided for them (i.e. give Zakat and Sadaqah). And who believe in (the Quran and the Sunnah) which has […]

BENEFITS OF HIS FRIENDSHIP

In the Name of Allāh. Imagine if Allāh says you are His Friend, won’t you like that? Well, the riposte that I expect is; Yes! Indeed, I like to be Allāh’s Friend. However, to be His Friend, one needs two great all-inclusive qualities; ‘Eeman (being a true believer) and ‘Taqwa (being conscious of Allāh to […]

SHAYTAN TAKES CHANCE

In the Name of Allāh. Naturally, we try to avoid contact with Allāh when we do something shameful or embarrassing (i.e. sin). Here, Shaytan takes chance by whispering to us about not repenting to Allāh. So, when one listens to Shaytan, he considers himself not worthy of Allāh’s Mercy, distances himself from Him and thereby […]

MESSENGER OR GOD?

In the Name of Allāh. No-no! They should bring the different versions of the Bible out (such as Living Bible, Amplified Bible, New Jerusalem Bible, Good News Bible, Holy Bible, New American Standard Bible, American Translation of the Holy Bible, and others), then show us where Jesus said: “I’m God, worship me.” Is there any […]

SPEAKING IN GOD’S NAME

In the Name of Allāh. I have passed by places and heard the acclaimed men of God speaking in God’s Name with no authority whatsoever. However, it’s pathetic that we now have some Muslims following suit. They wrongly speak with authority, misinterpret textual evidence and mislead people from the straight Path in the name of […]

TO HIM IS POWER

In the Name of Allāh. It marvels me when a person behaves like he’s self-sufficient. Oh-no! He’s absolutely weak and in dire need of Allāh’s Help. Allāh says (in Surah Ar-Rahman [55] verse 29): “Whosoever is in the heavens and on earth begs of Him (its needs from Him). Every day He has a matter […]

WHILST THEY WORSHIP CREATIONS

In the Name of Allāh. Whilst all other acclaimed religions are connected to people, places, or prophets (like Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, Christianity, etc.), Islam stands out as the only divine religion given its name by Allāh and directly connected to Him – the Lord of the Majestic Throne. Allāh says (in Surah Al-‘Imran [3] verse […]

ACCEPT HIS INVITATION

In the Name of Allāh. Ordinarily, we feel much exultant when invited by an influential person. But, the best Inviter (that one should feel happy to accept His Invitation) among all inviters is Allāh. Indeed, Allāh invites us. Thence, we should accept His Invitation and abandon all that can hinder us from answering Him. He […]

THE MESSAGE IS THAT…

In the Name of Allāh. Exaltation is to Allāh above all fallacious attributes attributed to Him. With Allāh are pain and gain. He causes Life and Death. I begin with these words, the essence of which is for accentuation, since many often listen to such but they pay less attention to it and they thus […]

LAUGH LATER AT THEM

In the Name of Allāh. See what the world has become! Muslim men want to grow beards (i.e. facial hair) according to the Sunnah (way and teaching) of Allāh’s Prophets (‘Eesa [Jesus] inclusive), but they are regarded backward. Muslim women want to cover and dress according to the dress code of the believing women (Maryam […]
