Being blessed with honor is also a test

If one is endowed with power, honor, status, rank, or wealth, he must realize that he is being tested. When Prophet Sulaymaan (Solomon) saw the throne of Bilqees (Queen of Sheba) brought before him, he said: Read more…

The shari`ah is made easy for you

Ease and facilitation – these are two qualities of the Shari’ah that give comfort to the believer.

We have not sent down the Qur’an unto you [O’ Muhammad] to cause you distress. (Qur’an 20: 1)

And we shall make easy for you [O’ Muhammad] the easy way [i.e. the doing of righteous deeds].  (Qur’an 87: 8)

Allah burdens not a person beyond his scope.  (Qur’an 2: 286)

Allah puts no burden on any person beyond what He has given him. (Qur’an 65: 7)  

And He has not laid upon you in religion any hardship…   (Qur ‘an 22: 78)

He releases them from their heavy burdens [of Allah’s Covenant] and from the fetters [bindings] that were upon them.  (Qur ‘an 7. 157) Read more…

This life does not deserve our grief

Napoleon exclaimed in Saint Helena:

“I have not known (even) six happy days in my whole life.” The Caliph, Hisham ibn Abdul-Malik, said:

“I have attempted to recall and enumerate the number of happy days in my life, and I have found them to be thirteen in total.” And his father would often repine and say, Read more…

Good Life…

A Western thinker said:

“It is most possible for you, while you are behind steel bars, to look out upon the horizon and to smell roses. It is also extremely plausible for you to be in a castle replete with opulence and comfort, and yet be angry and discontented with your family and wealth.”

Therefore happiness is not determined by time or by place, but instead by faith in Allah and obedience to Him, matters that are rooted in a person’s heart. The heart has a far-reaching significance in that it is the place that Allah looks at and scrutinizes. If faith settles itself in the heart, happiness and tranquility will pervade both the heart and the soul.

Virtues of the Last 10 Nights

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, and peace and blessings be upon the Trustworthy Prophet Muhammad and upon all his family and companions.

 The Prophet (peace be upon him) used to strive hard (in worship) during the last ten days of Ramadan in a way that he did not strive at any other times.

[Muslim, 1175, from ‘A’ishah]

 Among the things he did were secluding himself in I’tikaf and seeking Laylat al-Qadr during this time.  Read more…

If you embrace Islam, there is no reason for you to be sad

Miserable are those souls that are ignorant of Islam or that know Islam but have not been guided to it. Today, Muslims need a slogan or advertisement to be broadcast worldwide, for Islam is a great message that must be conveyed to the masses. The words of this slogan need to be clear, concise, and inviting because the happiness of humanity as a whole lies in this true Religion.

And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him…. (Qur’an 3: 85) Read more…
