May Allah (SWT) grant us and all the Marhoomeen Forgiveness and Jannatul Firdaus (Aameen)



By Sh Abdul-Muhsin Al-Qaasim (Imam of Haram)

Allah has perfected the religion for us, completed His favour upon us and has chosen for us Islam as our religion. Islam is a religion that has its basics and principles deeply rooted and strongly fortified. It enjoins all noble traits and forbids all corrupt deeds. It teaches that man’s elevation lies in religiosity and good conduct. Self-refinement enlivens hearts and leads to commendable characters. Characters have limits that, if overstepped, become hostilities and if they fall short of it they become shame and defect.

Call yourself to account for days you have spent in this life and know that whatever has passed can never be regained. Though the human self, that is naturally inclined to evil, finds excuses for whatever has passed and nurses hopes for whatever is left, the best among the wise people is the one who reproaches himself most. Whoever understands this life well strives to attain the best thereof. This life is a season in which the vigilant search only for the most precious material.

Brothers in Islam! Real enjoyment of this world is only achieved by being steadfast and firm in matter of one’s religion. The happy person is the one who succeeds in making good use of his health in this world. The increase in one’s rank in Paradise depends on one’s virtuous deeds. The best thing one can occupy oneself with is the knowledge of Sharee’ah and whatever besides that is of secondary importance. When there is no knowledge, there will be misguidance. It is better to give priority to more important matters; for toiling in search of knowledge that caters for one’s well being in this world and the Hereafter is better than toiling for the mere enjoyment of this life. The fruit of this life are only knowledge and good deeds. read more

DUA (prayer)


When terrified of a ruler or a tyrant person or group recite:

"Allahumma innaa nauthu bika ay yafruta alayna ahadum minhum aw ay yatgha"

O Allah I seek refuge in You from that anyone of them should oppress us or trespass (our rights).
Or recite this Dua:

"Allahumma ilaaha Jibraeela wa Miykaeela wa Israafeela wa ilaaha Ibrahima wa Ismaeela wa Ishaaqa aa'fini wa laa tusallitanna ahadam min khalqika alayya bi shay in wa laa taaqata lee bih"

O Allah Diety of Jibraeel, Mikaeel, Israfeel and the diety of Ibrahim, Ismail and Ishaaq, grant me safety and do not let anyone of your creation whom I cannot fight have the better of me.

Thereafter recite this Dua:
"Radiytu bil laahi Rabba wa bil Islaami deena wa bi Muhammedin nabiyya wa bil Quraani hakamaw wa imaama."

I am pleased with Allah as my Rabb, Islam as my religion, Muhammed as my messenger and the Quraan as my judge and leader.

(Al Hisnul Haseen, Pg 180)

We are born naked, wet, and hungry. Then things get worse.

What is a "free" gift? Aren't all gifts free?
Better to understand a little than to misunderstand a lot.
We have enough youth, how about a fountain of SMART?
Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.
