Books Alone Cannot Make Us!


Thursday, 07 February 2013 07:29

Knowledge and books alone have not made any nation or changed any nation. People make people; books do not make a man. For instance if the Quraan Majeed, the noble book of Allah Ta’ala which contains the entire code of life for a Muslim, is taught to one by a Jew or a Christian, then the effect of the Quraan Majeed will not fall on one. Instead the effect of the Jewish or Christian teacher will fall on one. From this it is apparent to us that the actual teacher of mankind is man himself and books serve as the means to attain knowledge. Today we hope to become the best of Muslims by being content on books and websites alone. Many people, who set out to study Islam on their own, started off with the sincere intention of rectifying themselves. However, they soon started trying to “rectify Islam” due to their ignorance. Therefore we will always be in need of the guidance of our pious Ulama in studying Deen and serving Deen.


A Beautiful Response to Abusive Insults


Saturday, 16 March 2013 08:17

A man once verbally abused Abu Zar Ghifaari (radhiyallahu anhu) the illustrious Sahaabi of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), he replied to the man’s insult with the following words: “Brother! There is a steep and rocky road between me and Jannah. If I pass through safely, then your insult means nothing to me. But on the contrary, if I fail to cross that path and hence I am prevented from reaching Jannah then indeed I am worthy of insults much worse than what you have mentioned.” (Nafhatul-Arab Pg.13)

Why Dig Up The Past?


Thursday, 14 March 2013 08:01

While the disagreements and fights that take place amongst women may not be of a violent nature, they indeed become very prolonged affairs. Their displeasure and ill feelings continue for an extended period of time. What makes matters even worse is the habit of women to dig up the past. Issues which were resolved and forgotten a long time ago are brought up again. As a result a small issue becomes a major problem, especially when past events are recalled and mentioned in harsh and heart - piercing words. To rub salt in the wound she will then also remind the husband of all the favours and good she did for him. All this is done only to please one’s nafs (carnal desire) and shaytaan. It is time we suppress our words of anger and please our most loving Allah Ta‘ala.
