Unsung, unknown saint heroes.


K. JAVEED NAYEEM writes: Last week, Mysore saw the passing away of a man whom most people of any substance will perhaps never miss. But the less fortunate ones amongst us, whose number is legion and who are considered a burden on society, both while they are alive and strangely even after they are dead, will perhaps begin to notice his absence from their midst very soon.

Ghulam Hussain, the nondescript and soft spoken man whom I knew over the past 30 years, bid a silent adieu to this world and to his most humble and thankless existence without me even knowing that he was dead. I discovered that he was not only dead but buried too only when I picked up Star of Mysore on the evening of that fateful day of his departure.

He was perhaps the only person in our midst who served the living and…

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Below is an excellent answer which deals with the issue of taqleed and thereafter is a small illustrious example of taqleed. A few good books and articles are also linked for further understanding on the subject.
The answer addresses the following points concisely:

Why are there differences of opinions?

– Differences of opinion arising from the understanding of the Noble Qurān.

– Differences of opinion arising from the Noble Ahādith.

– There were many mujtahids in the past. Why do I have to restrict myself to following one of the four madhāhib?

– If all four madhāhab are correct why do I have to restrict myself to only one madhhab?

– Why do I have to follow an Imām of fiqh? Why can’t I follow an Imām of hadīth? It is unanimously accepted that the Sahīh of Imām…

Bismillah, alhamdulillah, was-salat wa salam ala Rasulullah

This next section has to do with the Muslim world on the world stage. AHM deals with the life of Muslims in the West, as well as the relationship between East and West, and how Islam circumscribes politics. He does deal with certain regions of the world by name (Europe, Turkey, India, etc.) but I will be adding those sections here shortly.

Spirituality and Politics
20. Remember: the history of Islam is the history of the Muslim ego.
-Most of the Muslim conquest were done for glory or prestige and this is the case again today

54. If you put down your tasbih you will not pick up a rifle safely.
-The importance of spirituality (inward mujadaha) in tandem with physical outward jihad or else we will have a bad beginning in our battles

While working on my commentary of Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad’s Contentions, I corresponded with the noble shaykh and he shared some of his own commentary on the more difficult ones that I struggled in commenting on or thought perhaps…there was more to their meaning than the obvious. It was surprising to learn that even he forgot what some of them meant…and also great to finally know what some of the more ambiguous contentions meant. I meant to post it earlier on, but alas, forgot.

Here is his commentary verbatim, reproduced by his permission.

82.       He did not say: ‘Guide us to the gay path.’ (happy/joy)

He said ‘Straight path’.

3.     Some drink deeply at the Fountain of Life; others merely gargle.

The Fountain of Life ‘ab-i hayat’ is dhikr, which saves us from spiritual death. Dhikr should be internalised and enter the heart, not simply played with inside the mouth.

This section is quite difficult but I have tried my best here. I will most definitely have to review it and add more to this. And for the Jewish people that may come across this, this isn’t anti-semitic or politicized, its merely a discussion on the relationship between Islam and Judaism, hopefully it will be beneficial and lead to greater peace and understanding.


-Abdal Hakim Murad says in one of his papers, ‘What matters about Islam is that it did not produce the modern world. If modernity ends in a technologically-induced holocaust, then survivors will probably hail the religion’s wisdom in not authoring something similar. If, however, it survives, and continues to produce a global monoculture where the past is forgotten, and where international laws and customs are increasingly restrictive of cultural difference, then Islam is likely to remain the world’s great heresy. In that case, Kepnes’ description of…

Dua is the most powerful weapon of a momin!

Bismillah ar-Rahman ar-Raheem

We all will be tested by Allah (SWT) and therefore we will pass through times which would seem difficult to us. But indeed Allah (SWT) will be preparing us to be strong and firm on our Imaan. At such times or occasions the best way to ask help from Allah (SWT) is the way Allah (SWT) and Prophet (SA) taught us to do.

Below are some Dua/Ayah with their translation which we must recite at the time of difficulty to seek tauba and help from Allah (SWT).

Raising Muslims

This is something I found on Hijrah To Algeria… blog and I just had to share…

If you want to find out whether you are close to Allah, this is the way:

Look at how easy or difficult it is to do different actions that are pleasing to Allah (reading qu’ran, giving sadaqa, qiyam, siyam, etc).

If you are so happy and take great pleasure at performing these acts, and it is easy for you – this is a sign that you are close to Allah.

If it is difficult for you and you find yourself making excuses, and it is hard for you and you literally have to drag yourself to do these acts, then know that you do not have a close relationship with Allah.’

Islam.. religion of peace and love!

Isn’t Islam intolerant of other religions?

Tolerance is the attitude that should govern the dealings of all people with one another. Religious tolerance is an essential principle of Islam and Muslims are ordered to have good relations with people of all religions and be kind and courteous to everyone. Muslims are ordered by the Qur’an to uphold their promises and agreements with non-Muslims and not betray or transgress against them. The lives, families, properties and honor of non-Muslims must be protected under any government that claims to apply Islamic law. Non-Muslims are also guaranteed the right and freedom to practice their own religions in an Islamic state.

Islam is a religion of mercy and justice. It teaches its adherents to interact with all people and to cooperate with them for the betterment of mankind. More than ever today, Muslims need to work together with other groups that oppose oppression, bloodshed…

honey for the heart

“Allah! There is no deity worthy of worship but Him, al-Hayy (the Living), al-Qayyum (the Self-Sustaining).” (Surah Ali-Imran [3]:1)

“All faces shall be humbled before [Allah], al-Hayy  (the Living), al-Qayyum (the Self-Sustaining). And the one who carried the burden of wrong-doing shall be in complete loss.” (Surah Ta Ha [20]: 111)

All praises and glory be to Allah who is Al-Hayy, the Living, who has complete and perfect power, and exists without dependence upon anything else. He alone is the sustainer of the inhabitants of the heaven and the earth, and the One who regulates their affairs and provisions. He is not subject to drowsiness or sleep and He is exalted far above all form of weakness. We on the other hand are created with many forms of inherent weakness, such that we need to turn our Lord and ask Him for assistance in all of our affairs.

But recently the French rapper made her first television appearance with her new image.

A Glimpse Into The Life of A Muslimah


There once was a horse that fell into an abandoned well. His owner wanted to get him out but when he calculated the cost and effort and contemplated what he would have to do and everything the task would involve and the result of that, he came to a conclusion. He figured that the horse is too old and the well is abandoned. So, it would be easier just to buy a new horse and fill up the old well.  Therefore, the plan was made.

The man went around to his neighbors and asked them to help him.  So, they all gathered at the well and began shoveling dirt onto the horse. Well, the horse started going crazy, whining and sreaming and stomping. Suddenly, the sound dissappeared. The horse’s owner leaned over the well and looked down. He was amazed at what he saw.

Everytime a person dumped dirt onto…
