Hasten to the House of Allah -  The Friday Congregation

The Importance of Jumuah Salaah

Since Friday has been accorded the most amount of merits as opposed to other days, a special prayer was therefore ordered for this day, the Jumuah Salaah.

Even though every Fardh Salaah should be read in congregation, there is a special emphasis on congregating for the Jumuah Salaah. 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)

I am a registered nurse, not a doctor, but here is the story:

Patient was a newly diagnosed diabetic who needed to be taught how to inject insulin. So, the diabetes educator did the good old routine of taking an orange, drawing up insulin, then injecting it into the orange. He then made the patient repeat this practice routine a few times.

The patient goes home, etc. He comes back in a week and his blood sugar is out of control. They ask him if he has been taking his insulin and he goes "of course." So, they decide to ask him to demonstrate how he injects insulin. The patient goes "sure, I just need an orange."

At this point, I started face palming hard because I knew where this one is heading. But of course, they got him an orange and a vial of insulin with a syringe. So, the guy draws up the insulin correctly, takes the syringe, injects it into the orange, and then says, "then I eat the orange."
