Ramadan Ends But Hope Does Not

It’s possible that you have missed to perform well in Ramadan. It’s possible that you tried but never could you hit the bars like others did. It’s even possible that you have fallen deep into the woebegone pits and seems as though there’s no way out for you. We don’t have to sweep these realities under the carpet; rather we must deal with them.

From Womb To N.I.C.U

I came back to my ward and laid on the bed, closed my eyes and took a very deep breath, tears started to roll down in hush and pictures of my son flashed back my mind again and again, asking myself, “what have I done to my baby?”

Corrupter of Faith

The Jinn of Aladdin is a dangerous baby sitter for your child because Aladdin and magic lamp appears to be an "Islamic" story. Every time the "Muslim" Aladdin needs help, instead of approaching AllahAllah Subhanahu-wa-Taala, he rubs the lamp. The story tells that the Jinn is swifter in responding and furnishes all the jobs given to him by his 'Master' Aladdin.

The Barometer of Islamic Society

As Muslims striving in the cause of Allah, we should have our own criterion to determine if our society is in a positive state or in a decline. We should not depend on rulers or mass media which are not always honest or may be under coercive measures and far from independent to avoid bias or false perceptions. An analysis of history and especially Islamic history can be conducted to investigate this subject. Yet more importantly, the Prophet (SAW) has provided us with many of these barometers in his statements and actions, that provide a wonderful criterion to judge our neighborhood or even the world as a whole.

The Modern Islamic Home: Aspects and Principles (Part II)

The home must be a place of worship, a classroom, a place of taking care of the necessities of life, a place of close family relationships, a place for rest, a place for work, a place for drawing near to Allah Allah Subhanahu-wa-Taala even when no one else can see, a place of thinking, a place of upbringing steadfast and upright Muslim children. The home is the place we always return to in this world while the hereafter is the place we will certainly return to, after our death. Thus, it is a temporary resting place for us given as sustenance from AllahAllah Subhanahu-wa-Taala which we should use to prepare for the final resting place to come.
