Forgiveness and Kindness Win the Day

Once while Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) and the Sahaabah (radiyallahu anhum) were on a journey, there was a heavy downpour which caused them to be drenched. Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) hung his clothes on a nearby tree and lay down to rest beneath it. The Ghatfaan tribe who were till then enemies of Islam saw this to be an opportune moment to assassinate Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam). Hence they challenged Du’thoor, a gallant young man, to accomplish this task. They said: “Muhammad is lying down all alone under that tree. All his companions are scattered about. Why don’t you finish him off?”

The Most Unqualified Occupation


Monday, 29 October 2012 00:00

Every effort of deen has a code of conduct with established rules and principles. In order to be part of any effort of deen, together with the necessary abilities and capabilities, the basic requirement is complete submission to the code and conduct. Those who submit in this way, progress tremendously. On the other hand there are those who do not wish to submit and take part in any effort of deen. They simply object and criticise the sincere efforts of others without any valid reason. This is the easiest thing to do, as it requires absolutely no qualification. Thus, a person who has no ability or capability to do something constructive for the deen of Allah Ta’ala, now becomes destructive by engaging himself/herself in objecting and criticising the effort of others. Since he/she lacks the ability to do anything, he/she will now try to undo the good work of others. This happens due to the absence of submission in a person’s life. Submission paves the path towards progress. However, if making baseless objections becomes one’s habit, one’s life will be spent objecting against others, eventually leading to one’s own destruction.

Asalaamu Alaykum

Please could you assist me with advice? 

My ex-husband is not sticking to any settlement agreement and has been bad mouthing me to my children for the years that we have been divorced. He pays small amounts and at such irregular intervals that there is no way that I can even rely on him assisting with any of the needs of my children. These two things have really got my defences up and more seriously, is spoiling my Imaan.

Deen vs Desire


Friday, 19 October 2012 06:43

Thousands of animals will once again be sacrificed worldwide on the occasion of Eidul-Adha. This qurbani (sacrifice) has been described as the “Sunnah of your Father Ebrahim (alaihis salaam)”. Sayyiduna Ebrahim (alaihis salaam) was commanded to offer his little son Sayyiduna Ismail (alaihis salaam) as a sacrifice. He submitted himself to the command of Allah Ta’ala and in compliance to the command he firmly passed the knife over the throat of his son. Allah Ta’ala prevented the knife from cutting and Sayyiduna Ismail (alaihis salaam) was spared.
