Narrated Muawiya (radi Allahu anhu): I heard the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) saying, "A group of people amongst my followers will remain obedient to Allah's orders and they will not be harmed by anyone who will not help them or who will oppose them, till Allah's Order (the Last Day) comes upon them while they are still on the right path." [Sahih Bukhari]

These are really good tidings for us, that no matter what the enemies of Islam try, they will never be able to annihilate Islam. There will always, till the Day of Judgment, be Muslims who are rightly guided and rightly guiding. Congratulations to such people, for Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) promises that nobody will be able to harm them.

Text of A.R. Rahman’s letter

(With No intention to offend anyone: A.R. Rahman on blasphemy controversy

“This letter is for all those people, who have been aware of the recent events concerning me. I’m not a scholar of Islam. I follow the middle path and am part of traditionalist and part rationalist

I live in the western and eastern worlds and try to love all people for what they are, without judging them

I didn’t direct or produce the movie Muhammad (PBUH), Messenger Of God.” I just did the music. My spiritual experiences of working on the film are very personal and I would prefer not to share these.

Mr. Noori, a member of the Raza Academy, has said in an interview featured in “The Bayside Journal”, why he believes it is important to voice a complaint:

Mr Noori: “See, as Muslims we have to do something about it since it is against our religion so that tomorrow, if and when e face Allah he doesn’t say that you didn’t do anything to stop this from happening. So we have to try”.

My decision to compose the music for this film was made in good faith with no intentions of causing offence.

In fact, the decision was based on similar point of view as expressed by Mr. Noori. What, and if, I had the good fortune of facing Allah (Sbt), and he were to ask me on Judgement Day:

How Kaabah was Built?

Assalamu-Alaikum and Greetings !

As we are entering the Hajj season, it would be timely to review how the city of Makkah was inhabited and how the Kaabah was built. As most of us know, Prophet Ibrahim took his wife Hajar and his very young son Ismail to the uninhabited land that later was called Makkah.

Seeing that Ibrahim had left them in the middle of no where, Ismail’s (Ishmael) mother followed him saying, "O Ibrâhîm (Abraham)! Where are you going, leaving us in this valley where there is no person whose company we may enjoy, nor is there anything (to enjoy)?" She repeated that to him many times, but he did not look back at her. Then she asked him, "Has Allâh ordered you to do so?" He said, "Yes." She said, "Then He will not neglect us," and returned while Ibrâhîm (Abraham) proceeded onwards....

Real standards of beauty

Real standards of beauty

Beautiful women making the front page of magazines and newspapers splashed with airbrushed models and celebrities. Not to mention, TV and social media platforms buzzing with news of how flawlessly beautiful this celebrity is and how amazingly tanned that celebrity isஸ Well, this is an everyday happening and people have become obsessed with the beauty standards of this world.

The media have been successful in achieving many things and one of its greatest traps is that it has caused women to succumb to the beauty standards of today. Every young girl who flips through a magazine will find themselves yearning to look as perfect as those airbrushed and photoshopped women and teenage girls in particularly, are willing to go to any length to match up with these beauty standards. This is why we see so many young girls lying in hospital beds as a result of anorexia as they tortured their body into being slim

, girls disfiguring their faces to make it look more model-like and in some extreme cases, some women even going to the extent of setting their own beauty standard that is a level ahead. I don’t even have to say how disastrous this is and if young girls haven’t tried out those, they fall into depression because they can’t match the standards the world expects of them.

Massive rally in Paris to express solidarity with Syrian migrants

Paris : A massive rally was held in the heart of the French capital  to express solidarity with the thousands of migrants and refugees arriving in Europe each day, and to urge the European Union (EU) to take action, France 24 reported.

Around 8,500 people participated in the demonstration in the Place de la République in Paris, according to police figures, with many waving Syrian flags.

“We are all descendants of immigrants,” one placard said, as the crowd chanted, “Open the borders!”
Smaller rallies were also held in other towns and cities across France, with around 10,000 people demonstrating in total.

Reward through Husband's Earnings

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: "When a woman spends (in the Path of Allah) from her husband's wealth, not wasting it (but spends reasonably and within permissible limits) she will have her reward for what she gave and her husband will have his for what he earned. The same applies to the storekeeper. The reward of any of these persons does not diminish the rewards of the others." [Sahih Bukhari]

In the life of this world, the title or ownership of wealth is outwardly assigned to human beings, through apparent means such as earnings or inheritance, due to the necessity of organising the affairs of an orderly society. However, all human beings are on an equal footing in terms of real ownership of possessions, in view of the fact that it is not man but Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) Who is the Absolute Owner. The husband, the wife, and even an employee who arranges for the charity payment to be made, are all rewarded due to their respective roles in facilitating the giving of charity and not on account of their temporary ownership of what was donated.

This hadith of Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) should be a source of reassurance to ladies that their giving in charity will earn them reward, regardless of whether they personally earned the money or not.

This hadith has been sent to me by

The Monster Mystery - 1 The big sleep over

Written by Shayma.
Sleep overThunder… lightning and heavy rain. A little girl ran to her home with a fever. She opened the door, ran inside and locked the door tightly. She sneezed and coughed very hard. She went to the

kitchen to ask her mom for hot water. She was coughing as she went to the kitchen. Her mother looked at her as she came in. “What happened Vanessa?” her mother asked.

“I caught a cold as I was coming back from the market” Vanessa replied back. “May I have hot water please?” she asked. “Yes, you may.” Her mother sighed.

After drinking the water Vanessa went upstairs to her room to go to sleep. Then when she woke up saw that she slept for five hours! She remembered that she came home from the market five hours before the night, so now she knew that it was the night.  So she got up and went downstairs to the living room. She just was about to lie down on the sofa when the bell rang. She went to answer it thinking it was her dad. But just in case she saw who it could be. Outside was a man in a dark black suit that was soaking wet. Their uncle was standing there with a mad expression.

Women attending the Masjid

The Masjid is known as the ‘house of Allah’ as it symbolises the place where God is worshipped. This is the place of devotion and proclamation of his Greatness and Majesty. Although the Prophet (peace be upon him) declared that ‘the entire earth has been made a masjid for me’, in other words we can pray anywhere. However, the Masjid has a special place in Muslim society. This spot of land designated as the Masjid is “the best place on earth” (prophetic tradition).
“The person who visits the Masjid is God’s guest and divine hospitality is forgiveness” said the Prophet (peace be upon him). The one who prays in congregation in the Masjid gets his reward multiplied twenty seven times (Hadith). “Whoever waits in the Masjid for the next prayer is protected as he is in a Ribat (fortress) which gives protection from the attacks of the devil and ones ego” (Hadith). The serene, quiet and simple environment of the Masjid lifts the spirit, which helps the worshipper to focus and get absorbed in divine thoughts.
