Remembering 9/11…

September 10, 2011 Leave a comment

As salaamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu

10 years have passed since that day.. the day that is referred to as 9-11.

Indeed, it was a day of grief for Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Innocent people lost their lives on that day. We wanted to make this post today for our readers as a reminder to the Muslims, as well as the non-Muslims that the acts of terrorism that happened on that day are totally forbidden in Islaam.

Islam prohibits the killing of innocent civilians and prohibits all acts of suicide, whether they are in the shape of suicide bombings or flying planes into buildings.

Alhamdulillah (all praise belongs to Allah), our manhaj (methodology) is very clear and we say the truth, even if it is against our own selves.

For further benefit, visit the link below for eye-opening articles on how Islaam condemns and prohibits acts of terrorism.

May Allah keep us all safe from the hands of these terrorrists and enable the Muslims and the non-Muslims to see the deviancy in the ideology of the Khwaarij (Renegades).

Ramadhaan outside of the US so far

August 6, 2011 2 comments

As salaamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu

I pray to Allah that everyone is taking full advantage of this blessed month of Ramadhaan. For verily, it could surely be our last.

Wanted to share a few quick things about spending Ramadhaan outside of the US and wanted to hear your comments also.

Spending the first 10 days of Ramadhaan in Pakistan.. It’s really a different feeling here. Especially at the time of each prayer. The moment you start walking towards the masjid, you see so many people mashaAllah going to the masjid for the congregational prayer. At least where I reside in CT, you hardly notice any difference except for ‘isha and taraweeh.

Breaking iftaar with the whole family is also more special because there are 10 minutes between the time of adhaan and the iqamah. So we eat what we can in that time and then the men start walking to the masjid.

Walking to the masjid is really tremendous. Not only do you get reward as mentioned in the following hadith but its also good for the health of the body mashaAllah.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (Peace be upon him) said, “He who purifies (performs Wudu’) himself in his house and then walks to one of the houses of Allah (mosque) for performing an obligatory Salat, one step of his will wipe out his sins and another step will elevate his rank (in Jannah).”
[Muslim].

However, its a little frustrating to see the opposition to the Sunnah. Just today, at the masjid for ‘isha, I saw a person in the row who was standing on his own prayer rug and both people on either side weren’t stepping on the prayer rug to close the gaps. There was easily room for one more person on either side.

It’s really nice however, to see so many people in the masjid for all the prayers. Makes you feel like this is a special month.

May Allah guide the rulers of the Muslim lands and guide the Muslims to Tawheed and the authentic Sunnah and away from acts of shirk, innovation and blind following of the madhabs. Ameen.

What have been your experiences of Ramadhaan outside of the US in Muslim countries? Go ahead and share. BarakAllahu feekum

In this audio clip, he talks about the four different types of disbelievers and what our position should be in regards to them.

At the end of the clip, he also talks about what the scholars have said regarding what the position of the Muslims should be when they are in weakness and the kuffaar (disbelievers) are stronger and have power over the Muslims.

Very beneficial listen!
