“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 ...

The Ignorant's complaint about Allah (GOD)

Posted on October 2, 2011 at 5:50 PM Comments comments (1)

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...

Undoubtedly forgetfulness is something that is natural in man, and man is only called insaan because of his forgetfulness (nasiy). Usually this varies from one person to another, according to the differences in the strength of the memory that Allaah has created in His slaves.

 The Qur’aan “escapes” from the heart if the Muslim does not constantly and regularly review what he has memorized...

Is it better to memorize Qur'aan or to read it during Ramadaan?

Posted on August 15, 2011 at 7:55 AM Comments comments (0)

Reading Qur’aan during Ramadaan is one of the best and most virtuous of good deeds, because Ramadaan is the month of the Qur’aan. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): 


“The month of Ramadan in which was revealed the Qur’aan, a guidance for mankind and clear proofs for the guidance and the criterion (between right and wrong)” [al-Baqarah 2:185]

Part 1

I was born into a Christian family and educated at Christian schools through grade 12. My parents went to church, so I went to church, because that was what we did. I never really paid much attention to it though; being a kid, I was more concerned with other things. Church was always a bit boring to me.
