Quranic Reflections – Juz 16

Quranic Reflections – Juz 16

It’s a beautiful habit to have; conversing with Allah about yourself and situation. Talk to Him regularly, not just in du’a and to ask of Him, but just to talk… To offload your issues, to find support, to clear your mind, to reconnect. He is more than just a God Who gives; He is your Wali (friend, supporter, and protector).

Quranic Reflections – Juz 15

Humans are impatient by nature – and this is something that stems from the fact that we were created hasty (as Allah said, “Man has been created hasty” [21: 37]). We don’t have patience at our core; it’s something we have to develop.

Quranic Reflections – Juz 14

After mentioning blessings, Allah calls us to show thanks to Him. Then He says that He has only made haram (unlawful) a few things – and this is so true subhan’Allah. If you really think about it, not many things are haram in this life, but Shaytan and society makes us believe that our religion is so restrictive and that everything is haram!

Quranic Reflections – Juz 13

There will always be someone who knows more than you, who understands things faster and is better at academics. There will always be someone who is wealthier than you, who gets what they want, earns more, and probably spends more. There will always be someone more beautiful or handsome, who attracts compliments and looks better than you in a dress or suit. There will always be someone better than you. But there can never be someone exactly like you, and that’s the part we don’t notice – because we are too busy trying to be like others.

Quranic Reflections – Juz 12

Patience is a hard lesson to learn. Most people pick it up during their times of difficulty and sorrow, because they’re forced to wait through their hardship and take each day as it comes. But we don’t realise that patience is also required during days of jubilance and joy.

Quranic Reflections – Juz 11

Hamd – an eternal word which spans from the beginning of time; a spiritual place that is both timeless and spaceless, to a lowly life on earth fixed by a decreed time, to yet another realm that will be endless and joyful for some, painful for others. In all, we thank and praise Allah `azza wa jall and so He remains worshipped by all in the heavens and the earth, both aforetime and in the future.

Quranic Reflections – Juz 10

It’s a choice, and for those who are harmed because of their choice to defend then there are the comforting words of the Prophet (s) which the Qur’an has eternalised: “Do not grieve; indeed Allah is with us.” And so like Abu Bakr, you work on and walk on because you believe with certainty and truthfully (sidq) in the Promise of your Lord.

Quranic Reflections – Juz 9

It’s always wiser to give people the time and space to talk; let them get things off their chest. If they are a friend, relative, or an upset spouse, you listen and try to understand where they’re coming from. If they are an opponent like in the case of Musa’s, you let them showcase all they have, learn their argument, and see their tools & tricks – then you can top it.

Quranic Reflections – Juz 7

Sometimes, a single statement that you make weighs so heavily on the Scale and is so powerful in the Unseen world that it qualifies you for Paradise. It’s not just actions, but words have huge weight and they are an act of worship too.

Quranic Reflections – Juz 6

Never lose focus of your scrolls that you’re filling every day. A single response may tarnish golden pages written for you, so choose your battles carefully, and let your piety and fear of God hold you back from overstepping His divine boundaries.

Quranic Reflections – Juz 5

Quranic Reflections – Juz 5

At times we make the mistake of ascribing piety and goodness to others or even ourselves, thinking that we are safe from the sins, societal ills, or tests and obstacles that have plagued others. But in a split moment, things can turn and our soft arrogance is wiped out by a God-sent reality.

Islam: The One and Only Religion

Islam: The One and Only Religion

“If our purpose in life is to worship our Creator, by what means do we worship Him?” The answer to a simple question like this is known to almost every Muslim in the world, however you will still find some Muslims, especially in the West, who will object and say, “God can be worshipped through any means and through any religion, and that there is no difference between the religions because they all call to the worship of God, and therefore instead of warning against other religions we must come together and unite all the religions.” In the following lines I intend to clarify the falsehood of such statements made by these Muslims who are growing in large numbers in the Western World.

Can you recite the same surah in each prayer?

Can you recite the same surah in each prayer?

My problem is that I am illiterate and I do not know how to read or write. I offer the prayers on time, but I do not know anything except Soorat al-Hamd [al-Faatihah] and “Qul Huwa Allahu Ahad (Say, He is Allah, [who is] One)” [Soorat al-Ikhlaas], and I repeat these two soorahs in every prayer. Is that sufficient?

A Void For Him

A Void For Him

Every free time you have is time that Allāh has freed for Himself.
If your friends have moved away from you, if you are done with your studies, if you have not found a job, if you have been let go from a job, if are not married yet—do not despair and do not be sad because that extra time that you have found yourself with is time that Allāh has blessed you with so that you can get closer to Him ﷻ.
