My Journey into the Unknown

All praise is due to Allah Ta‘ala, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

Blessings and salutations upon our beloved Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

I was born into a mixed-parentage family. My father was a Buddhist Chinese and my mother is a Hindu. They both practiced different faiths. I grew up worshipping idols and visiting temples, so I never felt odd or weird about the rituals. Because I was born in a Muslim country, Islam was not foreign to me.

I was seventeen when I started asking questions about my religion. Prayers and rituals did not make sense anymore. I then started seeking the religion that made the most sense. An invitation came for me to visit a church and attend a sermon. I did attend, but still felt that it wasn’t for me.

Disciplining Children


Last Updated on Tuesday, 02 October 2018 13:50


Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

How do I raise my children correctly and discipline them appropriately? I know that it is not permissible for one to beat his children excessively, but I feel as though there is no other option because of the stubbornness of the children. Is there any other way of disciplining children without disobeying Allah Ta‘ala?

Salaah – The Key to Tranquillity

Correspondence of Hazrat Moulana Yunus Patel Saheb (rahimahullah)


Assalaamu ‘alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh

Respected Moulana

I have a terrible habit of missing salaah. I cannot seem to read all my five daily salaah. I am trying, but can’t seem to get it right, even if it’s just reading the fardh salaah without the sunnats. Another problem that I am faced with is that I have no peace and contentment of heart. It really depresses me and makes me feel irritable and moody which also causes a problem in my marriage. My heart is a hard black stone.

The Etiquettes of Giving and Receiving Gifts


Last Updated on Sunday, 16 September 2018 09:46

1. The purpose of giving a gift is to engender love and affection in the heart.

2. Try to give a person something that he will like and appreciate.

3. Do not give someone such a gift that will create difficulty for him e.g. giving a very large and heavy gift to a person that is travelling (as it will be difficult for him to carry it and take it with him).

4. Do not give a gift anonymously, as the purpose of engendering love will be lost when the giver of the gift is unknown.

5. Do not ask a person for something or for some favour after giving them a gift, as they will feel compelled to fulfil your request. Furthermore, this gift will actually be a form of bribery.

Self-Reformation and Acquiring Knowledge


Last Updated on Tuesday, 11 September 2018 15:56


Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

Recently, I’ve noticed that there is a lot of Islamic knowledge that I do not know due to leaving madrasah at a very young age. I find that it is much easier for boys to learn about Deen and gain reformation through going out in jamaat or through attaching themselves to a shaikh, etc. However, for girls it is more difficult.

I would just like to enquire as to how girls should reform themselves in this instance, where they find it difficult and embarrassing to go back to madrasah at such an old age, and they find it extremely difficult to find and make friends with people who are good company and will help with one’s reformation.
