God, Human Suffering and the Believer

God, Human Suffering and the Believer

By Safi Kaskas HOW do you maintain a sense of faith in a God who claims to be merciful and compassionate, amid the myriad kinds of afflictions, pain, difficulties, setbacks, abuses, losses, and traumas that occur at the individual and collective scales? This question actually assumes that if God’s claims to be merciful and compassionate are true, suffering and disasters should not happen. This assumption actually hides another; that life on earth is an end in itself.

Make the Most of This Ramadhān

Make the Most of This Ramadhān

By Mawlānā Muhammad Saleem Dhorat hafizahullāh Once again, the best of all months, Ramadhān, is upon the horizon. It is a month in which at least one du'ā is accepted daily from every Muslim, one sunnah/nafl act is equivalent to the reward of one farḍ act, and one fardh act is rewarded seventy times over. From morning to evening and evening to morning, each and every second, Allāh ta'ālā showers His choicest blessings and barakah upon His servants.

The Foundational Characteristics of a Believer in Times of Distress

The Foundational Characteristics of a Believer in Times of Distress

By Sheikh Mikaeel Olivieri (Abdur Rahman) Almighty Allah has put us in this world for a short amount of time. In our time here, we must quickly assess and examine our situation. By the grace of Almighty Allah, he has guided us to the religion of Islam. Islam has left no stone unturned in showing us, in a very beautiful and simple way, how to live. The biggest test, of course, is dealing with trials and tribulations. Allah, outlining this, says in the Quran:

Masjid and Interest: Fighting with Allah for the House of Allah

Masjid and Interest: Fighting with Allah for the House of Allah

“The hour will come until people vie (strive in competition or rivalry) with one another regarding Masjids” [Hadith: Abu Dawud (449), An-Nasai (2/32), Ibn Majah (739), Ibn Hibban (308-Al-Mawarid), and Al-Baghawai in Sharh us Sunnah (464)-Smaller Signs of the Day (closer to Qiyamah, the Doomsday)].

But will they go to the limit that they will start acquiring money from the banks and Credit Unions with

The Ideal Muslim & The Ideal Muslimah

Shamim A. Siddiqi Different brothers define in their way that who is an ideal Muslim. Those are the qualifications of a "routine" or a "traditional" Muslim whereas the need is that of an Ideal Muslim and for that we need extra efforts to find out who are they, where they are found, what they constitute, how they can be built, how they live, act and behave, and how they would look like as living human beings in the context of the modern world.

After Becoming Muslim - What Is Next?

After Becoming Muslim - What Is Next?

Islam is to be understood in the true perspective of the Qur’an and the traditions of Prophet Muhammad (S). The condition of the existing Muslims is also to be judged on the same criterion. At present, there are about 1.2 billion Muslims on this earth, but nowhere in the world the Deen of Allah is in a dominant position. This is the greatest tragedy of human history. The Deen that could deliver justice, peace and security to mankind is nowhere visible as a political entity.

Al- Sawm (Fasting) And Its Significance

Al- Sawm (Fasting) And Its Significance

The month of Ramadan is observed by Muslims throughout the world with all sanctity and reverence that it demands. It is a universal training program prescribed by Allah (SWT) to keep the Muslim intact with their Deen and akin to their Creator and Sustainer on person to person basis.
