Ml Ashraf Ali Thanwi RA
(1863 – 1943)

A prominent Muslim scholar from the Indo-Pak Sub-continent. Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi graduated from the Darul Uloom Deoband in 1884. After his graduation, Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi taught religious sciences in Kanpur for fourteen years. Over a short period of time, he acquired a reputable position as a religious scholar, of Sufism among other subjects. His teaching attracted numerous students and his research and publications became well known in Islamic institutions. During these years, he traveled to various cities and villages, delivering lectures in the hope of reforming people. Printed versions of his lectures and discourses would usually become available shortly after these tours. Until then, few Islamic scholars had had their lectures printed and widely circulated in their own lifetimes. The desire to reform the masses intensified in him during his stay at Kanpur.

Eventually, Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi retired from teaching and devoted himself to reestablishing the spiritual centre (khanqah) of his shaikh in Thana Bhawan. His students and disciples settled in all parts of South Asia. read more

Tapioca Pudding

½ cup small pearl tapioca - 3 cups full cream milk or skim milk with cream added - ¼ tsp salt - 2 eggs - ½ cup sugar - ½ tsp vanilla.

Combine tapioca, milk and salt in pan on medium heat. Stir until boiling. Simmer for 5 minutes uncovered at the lowest possible heat adding sugar gradually. Beat eggs in a separate bowl and mix a little of the tapioca mixture very slowly to equalize the temperature. Return eggs to the pot with the tapioca and bring to the boil. Stir for 3 minutes more over lowest possible heat. Stir constantly, you may cook a little longer than 3 mins if needed to get a nice thick pudding consistency. Cool for 15 minutes add vanilla. Serve either warm or chilled.

35 Cuckoo Ave Lenasia

We have a wide range of Bukhoor and Incense Containers; Stockists of Madina Dates; Rutb; Freeze Juices + MANY MORE!!!

For that special occasion!!!


During a Jumah Khutbah in a small town, an Imam talked about the significance of saying "Insha Allah" (which means if Allah wills) when planning to do something in the future. After a few days, a man who had also attended the Khutbah was going to buy a cow from the market. On the way, he met a friend who asked him where he was going. He told him about buying the cow but did not say Insha Allah in the end. His friend reminded him about the Khutbah and told him to say Insha Allah. However, this individual said that he had the money he needs and the energy to go to the market, thus, there is no point of saying Insha Allah as he will certainly buy the cow. He thought that saying Insha Allah will not make any difference.

When he reached the market, he found a cow that met his expectations. He bargained with the seller and came to a reasonable price. Finally, he decided to pay for the cow but was dumbfounded when he discovered that his money was missing. A thief had stolen the
money while he was walking through the busy market. The cow seller asked him whether he was going to buy the cow or not. "Insha Allah, I will buy it next week," he said.

When he reached home, his wife inquired about the cow. He told her about how he forgot to say Insha Allah, and also added, "Insha Allah, I wanted to buy the cow. But Insha Allah, my money was stolen. Insha Allah, I will buy it next week." His wife clarified to him that we should say Insha Allah for things that are yet to happen, not for those things that had already happened. He never forgot his "Insha Allah" again.
