Beware!

Fabrication or modification of any sort in the religion of Islam is a bidaah and is therefore prohibited. Allah subhanahu wa Ta’Alaah in Surah Al’ An’am’s ayah # 93 has said,

which means:
“And who can be more unjust than he who invents a lie against Allah, or says: “A revelation has come to me” whereas no Revelation has come to him in anything; and who says, “I will reveal the like of what Allah has revealed.” And if you could but see when the Zalimun (polytheists & wrongdoers) are in the agonies of death, while the angels are stretching forth their hands (saying): “Deliver your souls! This day you shall be recompensed with the torment of regradation because of what you used to utter against Allah other than the truth. And you used to reject His Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) with disrespect!”

May Allah keep us all in His hifzoamaan, and may He guide us towards Siraatal- Mustaqeem, the Straight Path.

Ramaḍān Fables

The following report on the merits of fasting is being circulated via emails and text messages, with some even quoting it from the pulpit! The narration is baseless and has no authentic chain. The report should NOT be forwarded on to others unless you are pointing out its fabrication.

“Once Mūsā (peace be upon him) asked Allah: O Allah ! You have granted me the honor and privilege of talking to you directly, Have you given this privilege to any other person? Allah replied, O! Mūsā during the last period I am going to send a nation, who will be the nation of Muḥammad (peace be upon him) with dry lips, parched tongues, emaciated body with eyes sunken deep into their sockets, with livers dry and stomachs suffering the pangs of hunger- will call out to me (in supplication) they will be much closer to me than you O Mūsā! While you speak to me there are 70000 veils between you and me, but at the time of ifṭār (fast breaking) there will not be a single veil between me and the fasting person from the nation of Muḥammad (peace be upon him) O! Mūsā I have taken upon myself the responsibility that at the time of ifṭār I will never refuse the supplication of a fasting person!”

Ramadan Mabrook to All!

Allah remembers..

One of my teachers shared this on the forum:

Imam al-Shafi`i (rahimahullah) once said: “There’s an ayah in the Qur’an that is like an arrow in the heart of every oppressor and at the same time a source of comfort for the heart of the oppressed.”

People asked: “What is it?”

He said: “And never is your Lord forgetful [Surat Maryam: 64]

‘The’ Key

Thank you brother Bilal Phillips for this reminder yet again!

You know how it is when one under a lot of pressure and anxiety begins asking to oneself WHY?? WHY ME? WHY NOW? WHY HERE? WHY WHY WHY??? We have the tendency and so we just keep forgetting and in the end feel helpless.. and finally, exhausted, expectantly look up into the sky searching for an answer.. secretly praying.. hmmm.. depressing!

You know what pal, He does listen! He does guide!

Here’s the latest status update of Brother Bilal Phillips on the matter.. we need to realize where we go wrong.. patience indeed, is the one key.

The One Key it is! Have Patience.. keep sabr.

Allaah not only said: “Surely with every difficulty comes ease,” (94):6 but he also repeated the statement for special emphasis, word for word, in the verse following it. This is a divine promise of mercy, wherein, Allaah clearly states that He would never continuously burden an individual. There will always be a time of ease following all periods of hardships, therefore, man is enjoined to have Sabr (patience) at all times. It is man’s impatience which drives him to act impetuously, prematurely choosing what appears to be the easy way out, even though it falls under what has been forbidden. Impatience is a part of man’s nature, for Allaah Himself said: “Man was created hasty.” (21):37.
Consequently, the great reward in store for the righteous can only be attained if patience is exercised and the path of righteousness is followed especially in times of difficulty and temptation.
