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


Ramadan and Imaan

by 'Alî Abd-ur-Rahmân al-Hudhaifî - Imaam of Haram

All praise is due to Allaah, the Mighty, the Generous. I thank Him and seek for His forgiveness. I testify that there is no deity worthy of worship save Him and that Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) is His servant and messenger. O Allaah! Shower peace and blessings upon him as well as his family and companions.

Brethren in faith, always be conscious of Allaah by doing good deeds and abstaining from forbidden acts for, it is only through fear of Allaah that you can attain prosperity in this world and the pleasure of Allaah in the hereafter.

Fellow Muslims, it should be known to you that acts of worship that Allaah ordained on His servants have two aims:

First: To purify a Muslim’s soul in order to make it eligible for dwelling in the everlasting Paradise. Allaah says:

( قد أفلح من تزكى وذكر اسم ربه فصلى )

"Indeed, whoever purifies himself (by avoiding polytheism and accepting Islamic monotheism) and remembers (glorifies) the name of his Lord and prays will have success." (Al-A‘laa 87:14-15). Read more

THE 99 NAMES OF ALLAH (Asmaa ul Husnaa)

The Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) has said: "Allah has ninety-nine names, i.e. one-hundred minus one, and whoever knows them will go to Paradise." (Sahih Bukhari 50:894)

Abu Huraira RA reported Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) as saying: "There are ninety-nine names of Allah; he who commits them to memory would get into Paradise. Verily, Allah is Odd (He is one, and it is an odd number) and He loves odd numbers.." (Sahih Muslim Book-48 Hadith-5)

Automatically Inappropriate

Most businesses like that our credit card machines automatically print "Thank you, please come again" at the bottom of receipts. Though one guy called to ask if I could take it off.

"Sure," I said. "But do you mind my asking why?"

"It just seems inappropriate," he answered. "We're a funeral home."
