When the response of a du’a is delayed, the believer becomes even more humiliated and humble in front of All-Mighty. And this humility is one of the primary pillars of worship, for ibadah, is defined as the height of humility along with height of love. The three pillars upon which a Muslim worships Allah are love, fear and hope; and humility is one of the ways in which this fear and love is displayed.
So this delay in response is in fact means to draw out the servant...Read Full Post »

We think in detail about certain matters, typically about things that interest us or which we are directly facing. So football fanatics spend time in following up the latest football news, whose playing who, whose been bought by which team, etc. People into music know about the latest chart hits, the top ten and new bands on the scene. Movie buffs ponder about the latest movies, upcoming releases, the latest awards and the like. Despite expending effort and applying thought upon these trivial...Read Full Post »

One of the most important etiquette procedures that must accompany the performance of du’a is to be determined in one’s request.
Anas ibn Malik narrates that the Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) said:
“When one of you makes a du’a, then let him be firm and determined in his du’a, and let him not say, ‘O Allah! If You will, then please forgive me’, for there is no one who can force Allah to do anything” [Narrated by ...Read Full Post »

Whoever memorizes Qur’aan and acts upon it, Allaah will reward him and honour him greatly for that, so that he will rise in status in Paradise to a level commensurate with what he memorized of the Book of Allaah.
Al-Tirmidhi (2914) and Abu Dawood (1464) narrated from ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Amr that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “It will be said to the companion of the Qur’aan: Recite and rise ...Read Full Post »

The pen was the first creatures in order to write down the Predestinations before its existences; however, Adam was the last creatures, due to several reasons.
Firstly; to prepare the land for its inhabitants (who is Adam and the other creatures).
Secondly; Adam’s creation was the purpose behind the creation of the rest of the creatures; the Heavens, the Earth, the sun, the Moon, the Land and the Sea.

The topic of Duaa (the Arabic word for asking Allah for something or calling out) and its relationship to destiny (qadr) is a very important one, and one around which much confusion exists. Many people ask: “If everything has already been destined to occur, then of what use is duaa, as, if Allah has written what I want, I will get it without making duaa, and if it is not written for me, then I will never get it no matter how much duaa I make?
The response ...Read Full Post »

The prophet - peace and blessing upon him - said :
“No one will enter jannah (heaven) for his deeds ('بعمله') ! ”.
People said : “even you, messenger of Allah ?”
“Even me !” , he said, “unless Allah wraps me with His mercy”.
So, how to concord between this hadeeth and the other texts indicating that a person will enter Jannah for his actions ?

“And whoever is blinded from remembrance of the Most Merciful - We appoint for him a devil”
When the morning and the evening enter upon Allah’s servant while Allah Is his only concern, that he only asks for Allah’s satisfaction and keens on worshiping Him, Then Allah-Glory be to Him- will carry for him all of his needs and troubles, and then Allah will make his heart busy only with His love, his tongue only for His remembrance ...Read Full Post »

The Ignorant complains about Allah to people, and this is considered to be the utmost ignorance from both the complainer and the one who is being complained to, because if this complainer knows Allah well, then he won’t complain about Allah. Also if he knows people well, then he won’t ever complain to them. Some of the Salaf (Worthy Ancestors) saw a man complaining to another his dear need and poverty, he told him: O man, I swear that you benefit nothing except that...Read Full Post »

It is reported that Ibrâhîm b. Adham (d162H) – Allâh have mercy on him – once passed through the market of Basrah. People gathered around him and asked:
O Abû Ishâq, Allâh the Exalted says in his Book. ‘Call on me, I will answer your prayers’, but we have been calling on Him for a long time and He does not answer our prayers. [Ibrâhîm] replied, “O people of Basrah, your hearts have died in respect to ten things:Read Full Post »
