Feed the Fasting


Monday, 15 July 2013 08:45

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: “He who feeds a fasting person (at the time of iftaar), it becomes a means of forgiveness and freedom from the fire of janhanum for him. He will (also) receive the same reward as the fasting person without the reward of the fasting person decreasing.” The Sahaaba (radiyallahu anhum) asked: “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), not every one of us has the ability to feed a fasting person.” Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: “(This reward does not depend on feeding a person to his full), Allah Ta‘ala gives this reward to the one who gives a fasting person a date, or a sip of water or a sip of milk.” (Saheeh Ibni Khuzaimah #1887)

Great Opportunities


Wednesday, 10 July 2013 08:41

The month of Ramadhaan is a month of great opportunities. The opportunities that a Believer looks for are the opportunities of the Hereafter that make him/her closer to Allah Ta‘ala. Hereunder are some great opportunities which will bring us ‘great returns’.    

1. Tahajjud/Nafl Salaah: The virtues of tahajjud are many. Although we desire to wake up for tahajjud throughout the year, many of us don’t get the opportunity. Ramadhaan is the ideal time, since we are waking up for sehri. Together with the physical nourishment, we should take some spiritual nourishment as well.

Nani’s Coming!


Wednesday, 03 July 2013 08:22

Imagine if you were married overseas with no relatives around you. Moreover you haven’t seen your parents and siblings for years. Your children don’t even know what their Nani’s face looks like. Out of the blue, your mother drops a surprise call that the entire family is coming over to visit for one full month. 

Can words ever express the level of excitement at home??? You would be over the moon. You would turn the house upside down cleaning and scrubbing, perhaps even applying a new coat of paint. A special menu would be planned and your pantry would be stocked up. Your house and family would be shipshape and ready for the very special visitors.
