By Yvonne Ridley SO we might never know why someone hired a car and committed the murderous attack on a group of innocent people in London before turning his attentions on a policeman stabbing him to death. And yet the media has delivered a huge goal to Daesh by its round-the-clock coverage examining in minute detail every aspect of the 90 second attack. The first three days, in the absence of any real facts other than the subsequent identities of those killed and how they died, was all speculative.
By Sheikh Muhammad Saleem Dhorat hafizahullÄh Children are a Blessing Being gifted with children is a great blessing from AllÄh ta'ÄlÄ. For any blessing we receive we need to do shukr, i.e. be grateful to AllÄh ta'ÄlÄ. True shukr meets the following requirements: 1. Realise the blessing is the result of the Grace of AllÄh ta'ÄlÄ and that it has come to you without your being deserving of it. 2. Acknowledge your gratitude in your heart and express it verbally as well. 3. Use the blessin
AT the end of the sixth century AD humanity was facing a very depressed and deprived condition. There was no Guidance from its Creator and Sustainer to guide its destiny as all were â€œlostâ€ or mutilated due to human interpolation. There was no Kingdom of God on earth to deliver justice and equity to human abode. There was no concept of human rights and no court of justice to take care of their violations every now and then.
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:
ALL prophets came with signs and evidences furnished by God to show that the prophets were truly who they claimed to be. Among these signs were miracles that defied the laws of nature and were witnessed by the people. Generally, miracles are experienced only by the people who were there when the miracles actually occurred. Allah, however, furnished Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) with a miracle that would endure for all time. That miracle is the Qur'Ã¢n.
ONE of the characteristics of the teachings of Allahâ€™s Messenger (pbuh) and the commandments of Islamic Shariah is that they are compatible with the conditions and requirements of all ages. The events and annals from the time of the advent of Islam bear testimony to this fact. The world has witnessed catastrophic events through the vicissitude of time and life, but the teachings of Allahâ€™s Messenger (pbuh) are still fresh, vibrant, and relevant.
A Holistic Vision of Islamic Education-Tarbiyah Curriculum
LIVING in a society where being Muslim is regularly likened to being a terrorist and where our culture and way of life is constantly misappropriated and misunderstood can take a real toll on our mental and emotional well being.
If youâ€™re talented, be a scholar; if you donâ€™t have such talent, be a student; if you canâ€™t be a learner, love scholars. If that too is not possible, at least donâ€™t hate those who are knowledgeable. A ruler of half the world gave his citizens this small lesson in what we often call civilization or culture.
Syed Jawed Anwar Long weekends, holidays, and 2016 have gone. We did everything on these days except the one thing that Allah commanded us to do and for which Allah sent His Messengers (and Books) on earth --warning and glad tidings.
THE exile of the entire clan of Banu Hashim, to which Prophet Mohammadï·º belonged, is the worst example of trials and tribulations faced by him and his Companions (R.A.). When the Quraish came to know that the Abyssinian Christian ruler Najashi welcomed the Muslim migrants from Makkah and was moved by the Dawah of Prophet Mohammad (pbuh), they became sad as well as furious. They came down heavily on the Prophet and his Companions and even secretly planned to kill him. A pledge was taken that they would not
By Afzal Usmani It will not be an exaggeration to say that Maulana Hamiduddin Farahi is the most celebrated Quranic scholar Mohammadan Anglo Oriental College and Aligarh Muslim University have ever produced. He is known for his groundbreaking work on the concept of Nazm, or Coherence in the Quran. He was instrumental in producing highly scholarly works, which proved that the verses of the Quran are interconnected in such a way that the Surah, or Chapters, of the Quran form a coherent structure, having its
