A Gift to His Beloved Uncle


Saturday, 17 April 2021 10:07

Every person, whether young or old, wealthy or poor, becomes pleased and happy when they receive a gift, as a gift is a testament of love and affection. Furthermore, if the gift is valuable, or the one presenting the gift is beloved, then one appreciates and values the gift even more. In the case where the gift is valuable AND the one presenting it is beloved, then the gift will be so cherished that one will hold onto it and value it until he dies.

On one occasion, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) – who is the most beloved person to every Ummati - addressed his beloved uncle, Sayyiduna ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), and said, “O my beloved uncle! Shall I not give you something (most valuable)? Shall I not bestow you (with a magnificent bounty)? Shall I not give you (a priceless gift)?”

Being offered a magnificent gift from the most beloved person of all, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), is such a privilege that every believer desires that he could have been the one to whom Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) addressed those words. However, though the words were not addressed to us, we too can enjoy the magnificent gift that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) bestowed to his beloved uncle (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – the gift of Salaatut Tasbeeh.

(Du‘aa Series – Part One)

As we traverse the journey of life, we find that the entire road is not scenic and picturesque. Rather, the road is intermittently dotted with various hurdles and challenges. In these moments of difficulty, each person looks around him, imploring assistance and seeking a helping hand.

When we ask any person for help, then it always has disadvantages. He may assist us, but it may be done grudgingly. If he assists us happily and wholeheartedly, then he may be prepared to render assistance once, twice or maybe thrice. If we thereafter implore him for further assistance, he may become irritated, or may even lack the means and resources to help us further. At times, we wish to ask a person for help, but the person is inaccessible and cannot be contacted. Often, a person renders assistance, but thereafter reminds you of his favour and regards you to be indebted to him. Sometimes, we mention our problems to a person, hoping to garner sympathy, but instead receive harsh criticism and a stern rebuke.

Ramadhaan Goal Achievement Guide


Tuesday, 13 April 2021 09:37

In order to gain maximum benefit from the blessed month of Ramadhaan, it is important that we set ourselves goals and also set aside adequate time for the achievement of these goals. In this regard, a “Ramadhaan Goal Achievement Guide” has been attached which if printed and adhered to, will assist us to keep track of our progress.

The goals chalked out in the guide are:

1. Qadhaa Salaah – If we have any qadhaa salaah, let us begin performing them in this blessed month. If we consistently perform our outstanding salaah in Ramadhaan, then although we may not be able to complete all that are outstanding in this month, insha-Allah through the blessing of this month, we will find it easy to continue performing them after Ramadhaan as well. The number of the respective salaah that are performed daily should be written in the corresponding block e.g. if 3 x ‘Asr Salaah were performed on the 10th, write “3” in the corresponding block.

(Sayyiduna Hakeem bin Hizaam [radhiyallahu ‘anhu] – Part Two)

Abu Haazim (rahimahullah) mentions, “We did not hear of any person in the blessed city of Madeenah Munawwarah who would sponsor more animals to serve as conveyances in the path of Allah Ta‘ala than Sayyiduna Hakeem bin Hizaam (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).”

Abu Haazim (rahimahullah) then narrated the following incident:

On one occasion, two Bedouins came to Madeenah Munawwarah, seeking a person who would provide them with conveyances to go out in the path of Allah Ta‘ala. On enquiry, they were directed to Sayyiduna Hakeem bin Hizaam (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).

Are You Ready for Ramadhaan?


Saturday, 10 April 2021 10:47

Ask our children:

1. What do Muslims do in Ramadhaan?

2. Why do Muslims fast in Ramadhaan?

3. How much of reward does Allah Ta‘ala give us for doing good actions in Ramadhaan?

Now tell them the story:

It was the last day of madrasah, before Ramadhaan. Moulana Ahmad called all the children and spoke to them about Ramadhaan. He said, “Children! Ramadhaan is a very special month. In Ramadhaan, if anyone does a nafl action, he gets the great reward of a fardh action, and if anyone does a fardh action, he gets the reward of doing seventy fardh actions! Mahmood, do you know what that means?”
