The whole of the nineteenth century was passing through a period of turmoil for the millions of Muslims of the Indian sub-continent. Their political and cultural arena was disturbed, but they were fortunate enough to have been graced by the birth of several geniuses who left their mark and influence of their lives. Dr. Allama Mohammad Iqbal was one of the leaders of these luminaries.

He was born on 22 February 1873 in Sialkot, Punjab. His forefathers were Kashmiri Brahmims who accepted Islam, possibly in the seventeenth century. His father, Nur Muhammad, was a pious Muslim who resigned from government service and started doing business. He sent his eldest son, ‘Ata' Muhammad, to a madrasa, and sent the youngest son, Iqbal, to a missionary school. Here in the mission school he met a famous and good ‘alim, Mir Hasan, who inspired Iqbal to study Islam.

He devoted three years to his studies in Europe. He studied Philosophy at Cambridge University with the famous philosopher, James Ward, and others and then he did a PhD in Persian mysticism at Munich University in Germany. Then he passed the Bar-at-Law in England and taught as a professor of Arabic at London University for six months.

In 1915 Iqbal wrote Asrar-I-Khudi, in 1917 Rumz-I-Bekhudi, in 1923 Payam-I-Mashriq, in 1924 Bang-I-Dera, and in 1927 Jabur-I-Azam. During this turbulent period many political upheavals were taking place in the Indian sub-continent and he could not remain isolated from the flow of these events. He jumped into them. In 1927 he became a Member of the Punjab Legislative Assembly and joined in active politics, voicing his fearless criticism of British rule. His advocacy for the rights of the people drew the attention of all.

In 1930, he was elected President of the Muslim League and he gave a fiery presidential speech at the Allahabad Conference of the League which was significant for many reasons. In this speech he gave a few original guidelines which were directed at the breaking of the political stalemate in India, and which gave an indication of a sovereign and independent Pakistan. Seven years later, on 20 June 1937, in a letter which he wrote to the Qa'id-I-Azam, Mohammad Ali Jinnah, he indicated the formation of a state comprising those provinces where Muslims were in the majority. Ten years later his prophecy came true and Pakistan was created, although he died in April, 1938, of heart failure. read more

A teacher once asked one of his lazy students:
“If you bring me a handful of the dust of Paradise, you’ll be a successful student.

The next day, the little boy came with a handful of dust and gave it to his teacher.
The teacher became angry and said: "Are you kidding me! Where did you get this from?”

The student answered with tears in his eyes “This dust was under the feet of my mother, didn’t you teach us that Paradise lies under the feet of mothers.”

Salaah – Back To Basics – Mufti Zubair – Part 01

In this enlightening series, Mufti Zubair Bhayat, discussed Salaah in detail as well as the Shuroot thereof.

Mufti commenced by defining the term Shuroot; the Preconditions for the validity of any act. These conditions were discussed and which have to be fulfilled prior to commencing the Salaah. If these conditions are not fulfilled, the Salaah itself will be nullified.

Also explained In this Podcast were; the Awrah – those parts of the body that are essential to be covered - for men and women to render the Salaah valid, what happens when a portion of the Awrah becomes exposed during Salaah and the ruling of wearing tight fitting and transparent clothing during Salaah.

This is part 1… Listen

The old man ordered one burger, one order of French fries and one drink and the old man un-wrapped the plain burger and carefully cut it in half. He placed one half in front of his wife. He then carefully counted out the French fries, dividing them into two piles and neatly placed one pile in front of his wife.

He took a sip of the drink; his wife took a sip and then set the cup down between them. As he began to eat his few bites of burger, the people around them kept looking over and whispering, “That poor old couple – all they can afford is one meal for the two of them.” As the man began to eat his fries a young man came to the table. He politely offered to buy another meal for the old couple. The old man said, “They were just fine”. They were used to sharing everything. The surrounding people noticed the little old lady hadn’t eaten a bite. She sat there watching her husband eat and occasionally taking turns sipping the drink.

Again, the young man came over and begged them to let him buy another meal for them. This time the old woman said, “No, thank you, we are used to sharing everything.” As the old man finished and was wiping his face neatly with the napkin, the young man again came over to the little old lady who had yet to eat a single bite of food and asked “What is it you are waiting for?”

She answered…. “The teeth”
