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



Surah An-Najam 53: - (The Star)

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Most Merciful

“near which there is Jannat-ul-ma'wa [the Paradise of Abode]..." [53:15]

COMMENTARY: The word 'Ma'waa' means 'abode' and a place where one resides or reposes comfortably. Jannah (Paradise) is called 'Ma'waa' because this is man's original abode. This is where 'Adam and Hawwa' (AS) were created; from here they were sent down to the earth; and this is where the people of Paradise will be sent back to reside permanently.

The Present Locale of Paradise and Hell: This verse verifies that Paradise exists at the present moment, as is the belief of the overwhelming majority of the Ummah. They believe that Paradise and Hell have been created and are already in existence. This verse pointed out that the location of Paradise is on the seventh heaven under the Divine Throne. In other words, the seventh heaven is, as though, the floor of Paradise and its roof is the Divine Throne. The location of Hell is not explicitly stated anywhere in the Qur'an or Prophetic Traditions.

Some scholars of the Qur'an deduce from the verse ("and by the sea, filled up with fire" [6:Toor]) that Hell is situated beneath the sea in the deep recesses of the earth which are presently hidden under some heavy covering. On the Day of Resurrection, it will be split asunder, and the sea will be kindled, thus turning the entire ocean into a raging and blazing fire.

Wild Easter Flowers

Fields and fields of Easter flowers.
Like a carpet beneath shady bowers

Swaying in the breeze and rippling in waves.
Stretching in the meadows and reaching the caves.

Memories of picking the flowers with my father beside
To make a bouquet to place by my mother’s side.

Who will dare to tread on such carpets and rugs?
Angels, fairies, and lady bugs.

Bidding farewell to the summer season.
A fitting welcome for winter is the reason.

The wafting aroma in the breeze.
Compels you for a moment to freeze

* Cyril Ramaphosa: Why We Reconsidered Decision on Tobacco Sales - President Cyril Ramaphosa says while there has been much public comment on government’s decision to extend the prohibition on the sale of tobacco products into level 4 it is wrong to suggest that there are Ministers or a President doing and saying whatever they want on the matter.

Lockdown Humor

  • People are using the word lockdown because they do not know how to spell kwarinteen.

  • Have you noticed that the number of selfies being posted are down by 68%?

  • I am pretty sure I just heard my fridge say, "What the heck do you want now?!"

  • Ontario has banned groups larger than 5. If you are a family of 6, you are all about to find out who's the least favourite!

  • After a few days of not going out, I saw someone I knew walking by on the sidewalk outside. I immediately ran to the window and started yelling to them. Now I understand dogs.

  • Day 36 of social isolation at home, and it is like I'm losing money by the minute. Nobody knows what time it is.
