Wear a Smile TODAY! =)

The Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam said: “..And smiling in the face of your brother is charity..”
When we think of charity, first thing that comes to mind is money. Fortunately though, our beautiful deen – most perfect and complete in every way and aspect of our lives – teaches us that every act of kindness including a smile is charity. So what better way than to starting your day with a smile?
Go ahead and smile at those around you. It only adds to your beauty

Note: We might smile at those outside our house but the moment we step in to our homes, our faces usually pull down as if dragged by gravity into a frown! So please, start with your family
I dedicate this to a certain someone
Just a reminder to all you out there — smile! its good for you! For a couple of reasons:
1) its sunnah — The Prophet Muhammad salla Allahu alayhi wasallam said, “And your smiling in the face of your brother is charity, your removing of stones, thorns, and bones from people’s paths is charity, and your guiding a man gone astray in the world is charity for you.” [Sahih at-Tirmithi]
2) It’s contagious!
3) Relieves stress!
4) SubhanAllah it boosts your immune system (reducing some sorts of diseases)
5) keeps you optimistic- changes your mood, allows you to look at life in a different perspective
6) makes you beautiful (whats up with all those face lifts and what not!)
7) It takes seventeen muscles to smile and forty-three to frown
See i know i could make you smile! alhamdulilah

April Fool - Not for Me - I am a Muslim

What is April Fool?

A celebration in which people speak lie, play jokes and mock in the name of entertainment. This ugly practice of lying, which is considered to be merely a humor, is known to have caused great harm to many. Even trauma and deaths. Still this dishonest tradition is not only practiced among the common masses, but also newspapers and magazines participate in it by publishing false news and untrue stories on the first day of April!

Why Muslims don't Celebrate April Fool?

Lying is a characteristic of hypocrisy and Allah's Messenger {SAW} strictly forbade lying at all times. He {SAW} said:

“Let he who truly believes in Allah and the Last Day speak good or be silent.”

[Saheeh al-Bukharee]


Moreover, he {SAW} has specifically cursed the person who lies to make people laugh, he said:

“Woe be on one who speaks and lies in order to make people laugh, woe be on him.”

[Abu Dawood]

The above Ahadith show the gravity of participating in the false tradition of April Fool, which the Western tradition appreciates and encourages claiming that it brings joy and amusement, whereas the Prophet {SAW} forbade lying and deceiving even if the intention of the person is to amuse people.


Abd al-Rahman Ibn Abi Laylaa said: “The companions of the Messenger of Allah {SAW} told us that they were traveling with the Messenger of Allah {SAW}. A man among them fell asleep and some of them went and took his arrows. When the man woke up, he got alarmed (because his arrows were missing) and the people laughed. The Prophet {SAW} said: “What are you laughing at?” They said, “Nothing, except that we took the arrows and he got alarmed.” The Messenger of Allah {SAW} said: “It is not permissible for a Muslim to frighten another Muslim.”

[Abu Dawood]


Muhammad {SAW} has also described the severe punishments for the liars and said: “I saw (in a dream), two men came to me. They said, 'The person, the one whose cheek you saw being torn away (from the mouth to the ear) was a liar and used to tell lies and the people would report those lies on his authority till they spread all over the world. So he will be punished like that till the Day of Resurrection.'”

[Sahih al-Bukhari, vol: 8, no: 118]

May Allah protect us from indulging ourselves in such dishonest activities and may He give us the strength to withstand such practices when they tend to infect our Muslim Society. Ameen!

Cigarette Smoking Is it Haraam in Islam?

Many Muslims regard smoking as MAKROOH (disliked) by the Shariah but not HARAAM ( forbidden). Whenever advice is given in this regard they choose to ignore it. Though people know the evil effects of smoking, it seems that Shaytaan and their nafs wants them to continue wasting their money and cause harm to their bodies and HEALTH.
Certainly, Cigarettes were not present during the lifetime of the Prophet Muhammed (S.A.W.), however rulings AND GUIDELINES with regards to similar substances are present in the two Revelations: the Qur’aan and the authentic Sunnah.(hadith)
As a rule, the Qur’aan forbids every thing that is evil. As Allah says: “”He (the Prophet Muhammed) allows them all that is good and lawful, and prohibits them as unlawful all that is evil.”" {Surah al-Ar’’af (7): 157}
Evil and sin manifests itself in things, deeds, beliefs, persons, foods, drinks, etc. So, If it is proved that smoking is among the evil, this is in itself enough for the Believers to realize that smoking is forbidden, in the light of the above stated verse of Soorah al-Ar’’af.
1. Smoking is a Killer: It causes diseases like lung cancer, tuberculosis and heart diseases (just to mention a few). And we know that Allah forbids us from killing ourselves. As He says: “”And do not kill yourselves. Surely, Allah is Most Merciful to you. And whoever commits that through aggression and injustice, We shall cast him into the Fire and that is easy for Allah”" {Surah an-Nisaa’’ (4): 29}
Allah also says: “”And do not throw yourselves into destruction.”" {Surah al-Baqarah (2):195
2. Smoking burns(waste) wealth: And Allah says: “”But spend not wastefully (your wealth) in the manner of a spendthrift. Verily spendthrifts are brothers of the devils.” {Surah al-Israa’’ (17) 26-27}
Do we not see the Muslims who smoke? Those who hold on to every cent , only to burn all of it in cigerettes! ……. Subhaan Allaah, along with their health, waste on top of waste. (Health and money.)
3. Smoking inflicts harm on non-smokers: The Messenger of Allah said: “”There should be neither harming, nor reciprocating harm.”"
{Saheeh al-Jaami # 7517} Many people encounter breathing problems when they accidentally inhale smoke from someone’’s pipe or cigerette, especially people suffering from bronchial asthma. It is also proved medically that non-smokers are harmed when in the company of smokers (i.e. passive smoking). The smoking of parents has

been linked to respiratory problems in children and crib death. It is also the cause of many devastating fires.
4. Smoking causes the spread of sin and evil: Since smoking is evil, Muslims who smoke should remember that they set a bad example on others when they smoke openly, encouraging young children AND OTHERS to smoke.
5. Smoking effects worship: Many smokers dislike fasting and sitting in Islamic study circles, LECTURES, because they constantly crave cigarettes. The smoker is an addict, both physically and psychologically.
6. Smoking makes the smoker and surrounding smell bad: Everything that a smoker comes in contact with smell of cigarettes; His car, clothes, home, etc. Therefore, when a smoker prays in congregation he hurts his fellow humans with his smell as well as the angels, as the Messenger of Allaah said: “”Whoever has eaten from such greens as garlic, onions or leek should keep away from our mosque. Truly, the angels are harmed by what harms the offspring of Aadam.”"Saheeh al-Bukhari

The above points constitute clear evidence that smoking is evil, and is therefore Haraam (unlawful). If a Muslim is under any kind of stress, then he must turn to Allaah for help. Even medical science has rejected outright, the myth that smoking calms the nerves. What we know for sure, is that the rememberence of Allaah is healing, as Allaah says: “”Verily in the remembrance of Allaah do hearts find tranquility.”" {Soorah ar-Raad (13):28}
So when the urge for smoking arises, resort to the Qur’aan and strive to comply with Allaah’’s commandments.
“”Those who strive hard in Our Cause, We will surely guide them to Our Paths.”" {Soorah al-Ankabut (29):69

To Quit Smoking

One can use the following measures/guidance while relying on Allah, seeking His help and guidance ,to quit smoking.
1. Try to remember that you want to gain the pleasure of Allah. Throw away all leftover cigarettes ,remember you have made a firm intention not to smoke.
2. Minimize contact with smokers (this being the most important step).
3.Try to minimize drinking , ESPECIALLY drinks that become mentally related to smoking like coffee, tea, (CAFFEINE), CORDENE ,ETC.
4. Whenever there is an urge to smoke, try to make yourself busy with something else, especially activities that keep your hands busy.
5. Try not to accept a cigarette from anyone.
6. If the need be, Try not to finish smoking, the whole cigarette.
7. Drink a lot of water when you quit smoking. Dehydration is the main cause of the symptoms of withdrawal.
8. Increase the use of the miswaak.
9. Keep company of the pious , KEEP THE TONGUE BUSY WITH THE ZIKR OF ALLAH.
10. Make dua.

Story of the Blind girl

There was a blind girl who hated herself just because she’s blind. She hated everyone, except her loving fiance. He is always there for her. Blind girl said that if she could only see the world, she would marry her fiance.
One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to the blind girl and then she can see everything, including her fiance.
Her fiance asked her, “now that you can see the world, will you marry me?” The girl was shocked when she saw that her fiance is blind too, and refused to marry him.
Her fiance walked away in tears, and later wrote a letter to girl saying. “Just take care of my eyes dear.”
Moral: This is how human brain changes when the status changed. Only few remember what life was before, and who’s always been there even in the most painful situations.
Never take someone for granted, Hold every person close to your Heart because you might wake up one day and realize that you have lost a diamond while you were too busy collecting stones. Remember this always in life!
“You learn to love, not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.
The Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) said: “You will not believe as long as you do not love one another.” – Sahih Muslim, Hadith 19
Hadith of Prophet Mohammad(sallallahu’ alaihi wa salaam)


Be Merciful To Other And Forgive Them For Their Short Comings

Narrated Jarir bin 'Abdullah: The Prophet [peace be upon him]said, "He who is not merciful to others, will not be treated mercifully. [Saheeh Bukhaari, Volume 8, Book 73, Number 42]

What if you Find a Watch in The Sand?

Suppose you found a watch in the middle of the desert. What would you conclude? Would you think someone had dropped thewatch? Or would you suppose that the watch came by itself?

Of course, no sane person would say the watch just happened to emerge from the sand. All the intricate working parts could not simply develop from the metals that lay buried in the earth.

The watch must have a manufacturer. If a watch tells an accurate time, we expect the manufacturer must be intelligent. Blind chance cannot produce a working watch. But what else tells accurate time? Consider the sunrise and the sunset. Their timings are so strictly regulated that scientists can publish in advance the sunrise and sunset times in your daily newspapers. But who regulated the timings of sunrise and sunset? If a watch cannot work without an intelligent maker, how can the sun appear to rise and set with such clockwork regularity? Could this occur by itself? Consider also that we benefit from the sun only because it remains at a safe distance from the earth. A distance that averages 93 million miles. If it got much closer, the earth would burn up. And if it got too far away, the earth would turn into an icy planet making human life here impossible.

Who decided in advance that this was the right distance? Could it just happen by chance? Without the sun, plants would not grow. Then animals and humans would starve. Did the sun just decide to be there for us? We need to experience sunrise. We need the sun’s energy and its light to see our way during the day. But we also need sunset. We need a break for the heat, we need the cool of the night and we need the lights to go out so we may sleep. Who regulated this process to provide what we need? Moreover, if we had only the warmth of the sun and the protection of the atmosphere we would want something more beauty. Our clothes provide warmth and protection, yet we design them also to look beautiful. Knowing our need for beauty, the designer of the sunrise and the sunset also made the view of them to be simply breathtaking. The Creator who gave us light, energy, protection and beauty deserves our thanks. Yet some people insist that He does not exist.

What would they think if they found a watch in the desert? An accurate, working watch? A beautifully designed watch? Would they not conclude that there does exist a watchmaker, One who appreciates beauty? Such is God who made us.

Islam: The Misunderstood Religion - Abdur Raheem Green

Islam: The Misunderstood Religion - Abdur Raheem Green


Quran and Hadith prove Islam's Opposition to Oppression, Terrorism and Injustice.

Islam's Opposition to Oppression, Terrorism and Injustice.

Evidence from the Noble Quran and Sunnah

The Quran was revealed by God to the Prophet Muhammad over 1400 years ago. Not a single letter has changed as one of the miracles of the Quran is that it will be preserved for all time. It is the perfect message for All humanity to follow and abide by. We recommend you learn about the true teachings of Islam and to learn from a true Muslim source. That way you will not be taught false information about Islam or Muslims. We are here simply to represent the Truth, to help people accept Islam as salvation and to build bridges to encourage understanding between all people.

The hatred some people might show towards Islam and the ill-practices of some Muslims should not hinder a Person from seeking the truth.

Islam strictly forbids killing of innocents. Nobody can ever be justified in killing any innocent man, woman or child. It is indeed a grave sin. Infact, all forms of oppression are outlawed and Muslims are encouraged to help others no matter what their religion or background is.

Terrorism does happen, it happens in all societies where various elements of ignorance, helplessness, sense of injustice and oppression are present. It happens by individuals, groups, and even States some perhaps closer to home then you might have though! Have an eye-opener. Extremists/Terrorists do not follow True Islam, their motivations and inspirations are driven from elsewhere..So who are the terrorists? Learn more about what "Terrorism" REALLY is here.

Islam, is free from imperfections, a message for all mankind and for all time.
Islam is very simple and easy to follow. A Muslim is simply someone who believes in Allah as the only God worthy of worship without having any partners. And, to believe in all his messengers which include Musa (Moses), Ibrahim (Abraham) Isa (Jesus) and the last and final messenger sent to mankind Muhammad . May Allah's peace and blessings be upon them all. Learn More about Islam..

Islam is not at fault, the Quran was revealed by God to all humanity to follow. It shall stand the test of time and not change. Its message is universal. Contrary to common ignorant beliefs, the Quran does not sanction the use of violence, terrorism, or oppression of any sort against any innocent men, women or children.

Rather, it upholds the sanctity of life. It encourages human rights and supports resolution to peace. There are Many non-Muslims in the West who after researching and looking at Islam, have totally shed their past prejudices about Islam and accepted Islam. They realised that what they had percieved about the religion previously was completely untrue. They found that the Quran upholds women's rights, and is against all forms of racism and oppression.

These are people who have had family members die on 9/11, journalists, academics, American Pioneers of Human Rights, Texans, British people, Australians, even Christian Preachers. They all found Islam appealing and based their lives upon it. You can Watch many of the video testimonies from them all here at TurnToIslam website, We really recommend you watch for yourself and see how these people have found true Islam.

Allah says in the Quran:
Certainly, We have brought to them a Book (the Qur'ân) which We have explained in detail with knowledge, - a guidance and a mercy to a people who believe. (7:152)

The Quran tells us not just how to lead our lives, but the best way to lead our lives. It provides us with guidance, inspiration, hope and the attainment of justice. -

No place in the Quran calls for the forced conversion of others, oppression of women or any of the other false claims people make regarding Islam - Unfortunately, in todays climate of War, State Terror and Media bias, the true teachings of Islam seldom get mentioned.

This page contains sources and evidence from the Quran and Sunnah, showing the justice and perfection of Islam. These are only a select few verses and hadith, its truly recommended that you read the Noble Quran yourself to learn about Islam and to get a good teacher, someone who is a Muslim with sound understanding of the Quran and Sunnah. You can ask any questions and get help on this website!

Jihad in Islam

Jihad does not mean "holy war". (Thats something the Christians did in the Middle Ages). The Word Jihad actually stems from Juhd, to strive/struggle. This is encouraged and can be for anything to please God. It is a jihad to get up in the morning to go to pray and to go to work, it is a jihad to go school in the rain. etc.

Personal Jihad: The most excellent jihad is that of the soul. This jihad, called the Jihadun-Nafs, is the intimate struggle to purify the soul of satanic influence--both subtle and overt. It is the struggle to cleanse one's spirit of sin. This is the most important level of jihad.

Verbal Jihad: On another occasion, the Prophet said, "The most excellent jihad is the speaking of truth in the face of a tyrant." He encouraged raising one's voice in the name of Allah on behalf of justice.

Physical Jihad: This is combat waged in defense of Muslims against oppression and transgression by the enemies of Allah, Islam and Muslims. We are commanded by Allah to lead peaceful lives and not transgress against anyone, but also to defend ourselves against oppression by "fighting against those who fight against us." This "jihad with the hand" is the aspect of jihad that has been so profoundly misunderstood in today's world.

In the Quran, Jihad is not used in a sense to mean fighting. The Word Qitaal is used when mentioning warfare. The Quran makes it clear:

"Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not do aggression, for Allah loves not the aggressors. Fight in the way of Allah against those who fight against you, but begin not hostilities. Lo! Allah loveth not aggressors. And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution is worse than slaughter. And fight not with them at the Inviolable Place of Worship until they first attack you there, but if they attack you (there) then slay them. Such is the reward of disbelievers. But if they desist, then lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah. But if they desist, then let there be no hostility except against wrongdoers." (Al-Baqarah 190-194)

Jihad can be defensive. Such as protecting our homes, people, land and way of life. It can be Liberating, helping free others from tyranny and oppression and it can be preemptive which is launched only when Muslims know for sure that there is treason against their peaceful treaties with the enemy, when the enemy has a serious plan to attack them.
  • No Such thing as Forced Conversions
Muslims are encouraged to invite people to learn about Islam and possibly to accept Islam as the one and only way to live their lives. It is the greatest gift a person could ever give to another. To have an understanding of why they were created, and to be able to have ultimate success in this life and an eternity of bliss in the next. For the ultimate reward for Muslim is not tangible one, it is spiritual satisfaction, i.e. knowing the purpose of our lives, having complete ease and peace.

Allah (most glorified and most high) says in the Quran:

Invite (mankind, O Muhammad SAW) to the Way of your Lord (i.e. Islâm) with wisdom (i.e. with the Divine Inspiration and the Qur'ân) and fair preaching, and argue with them in a way that is better. Truly, your Lord knows best who has gone astray from His Path, and He is the Best Aware of those who are guided. [16:125]

and Allah says:

There is no compulsion in religion. Verily, the Right Path has become distinct from the wrong path. Whoever disbelieves in Tâghût (false worship or idols)and believes in Allâh, then he has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that will never break. And Allâh is All-Hearer, All-Knower [2:256]

It is forbidden to force anyone to become Muslim. And under ISlamic law, forced conversion is not seen as carrying any legal status. i.e. it is invalid. Infact, any forced action is seen as invalid. For every action in Islam is judged by the Intention and it is only Allah who knows what lies in our hearts.

This forbidden use of force is also seen in marriage. Men and Women can not be forced to marry each other. Women have the complete right to choose their spouses. Likewise, if a man and a woman are forced to marry each other, under Islamic law the marriage is seen as invalid.

I would like to remind the reader that the actions of one person or a group can not be used to pass sweeping judgements against Islam. Islam is free from all of these accusations and slurs.
  • Killing innocent Men, Women and Children is Forbidden
The use of Force is allowed in Islam. However, Islam lays down clear guidelines as to how warfare is carried out. It is not for anyone to take the law into their own hands.

Allah says in the Quran:

{Because of that We ordained for the Children of Israel that if anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder, or (and) to spread mischief in the land - it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind. And indeed, there came to them Our Messengers with clear proofs, evidences, and signs, even then after that many of them continued to exceed the limits (e.g. by doing oppression unjustly and exceeding beyond the limits set by Allâh by committing the major sins) in the land!.} [ 5 : 32]

It is narrated by Ibn 'Umar that a woman was found killed in one of these battles; so the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) forbade the killing of women and children. (Sahih Al Bukhari Chapter : Prohibition of killing women and children in war.)

Narated By Rabah ibn Rabi' : When we were with the Apostle of Allah (pbuh) on an expedition, he saw some people collected together over something and sent a man and said: See, what are these people collected around? He then came and said: They are round a woman who has been killed. He said: This is not one with whom fighting should have taken place. Khalid ibn al-Walid was in charge of the van; so he sent a man and said: Tell Khalid not to kill a woman or a hired servant. (Sunan Abu Dawood)

Ibn `Umar (May Allah bepleased with them) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "A believer continues to guard his Faith (and thus hopes for Allah's Mercy) so long as he does not shed blood unjustly".

  • Beware of Enemies of Islam Hiding the Truth
There happen to be people who unfortunately relish in promoting ignorance and hatred towards Muslims. They play on the ignorance of others, by giving false information. For this reason it is always important to find out about Islam from true Islamic sources, such as this website.

These people often misquote the Quran. An example is when they quote the following verse out of context:

And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [2:191]

However, they do not quote the verse in its entirety and without establishing the facts surrounding these verses.

And fight in the Way of Allâh those who fight you, but transgress not the limits. Truly, Allâh likes not the transgressors.

And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [Trials, Persecution] is worse than killing. And fight not with them at Al-Masjid-al-Harâm (the sanctuary at Makkah),[unless they (first) fight you there.

But if they attack you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers.[2:190-191]

Allah and his Prophet forbid peopel from going to extremes.

The Messenger of Allaah (SAW) said, "I warn you of extremism in the Religion for indeed those that came before you were destroyed due to their extremism in the religion." Reported by an-Nasaa'ee (5/268), ibn Maajah (no. 3029), Ahmad (1/215, 347) with a saheeh sanad

"Thus have We Made of you an Ummah justly balanced" [Al-Baqara 2:143] "Ummatan Wasata"

Allah almighty says in the Quran:

Thus We have made you* a Wasat (just) (and the best) nation, that you be witnesses over mankind.
[Al-Baqara 2:143]

"Ummatan Wasata" Means Nation that is the best, the just, the balanced, and the fair. Not one which goes to any extremes.

[*true Muslims are the real believers of Islâmic Monotheism, true followers of Prophet Muhammad SAW and his Sunnah (legal ways)]
  • Allah guides People with his words "to ways of peace"
Allah, most high, says in the Quran:

{O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! Now has come to you Our Messenger (Muhammad SAW) explaining to you much of that which you used to hide from the Scripture and passing over (i.e. leaving out without explaining) much. Indeed, there has come to you from Allâh a light (Prophet Muhammad SAW ) and a plain Book (this Qur'ân).

Wherewith Allâh guides all those who seek His Good Pleasure to ways of peace, and He brings them out of darkness by His Will unto light and guides them to a Straight Way (Islâmic Monotheism). }
[Quran Surah Ma'idah 5:15-16]

Indeed, the message of Islam is about submitting to Allah and worhipping him alone. All people have a choice regarding this message. There is no compulsion in following Islam or not. It is not upon any Muslim to force another to do any action.
  • Justice:
Allah says in the Quran:

O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allâh, even though it be against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, be he rich or poor, Allâh is a Better Protector to both (than you). So follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest you may avoid justice, and if you distort your witness or refuse to give it, verily, Allâh is Ever Well Acquainted with what you do [4:135]

So, Muslims are those who strive to attain justice, between themselves and with other people.

Allah, most high, also says:

(They like to) listen to falsehood, to devour anything forbidden. So if they come to you (O Muhammad SAW), either judge between them, or turn away from them. If you turn away from them, they cannot hurt you in the least. And if you judge, judge with justice between them. Verily, Allâh loves those who act justly. [5:42]
  • Prophet was a Mercy for Mankind
And We have sent you (O Muhammad SAW) not but as a mercy for the 'Alamîn (mankind, jinns and all that exists). [21:107]
  • Patience and Forgiveness
"Show forgiveness, enjoin what is good, and turn away from the foolish (i.e., don't punish them).'' (7:199)

"...who repress anger, and who pardon men; verily, Allah loves Al-Muhsinun (the good-doers).'' (3:134)

"The good deed and the evil deed cannot be equal. Repel (the evil) with one which is better (i.e., Allah orders the faithful believers to be patient at the time of anger, and to excuse those who treat them badly) then verily he, between whom and you there was enmity, (will become) as though he was a close friend. But none is granted it (the above quality) except those who are patient - and none is granted it except the owner of the great portion (of happiness in the Hereafter, i.e., Jannah and of a high moral character) in this world.'' (41:34,35)

The way (of blame) is only against those who oppress men and wrongly rebel in the earth, for such there will be a painful torment. (42:42)

"And verily, whosoever shows patience and forgives that would truly be from the things recommended by Allah.'' (42:43)
  • Islam Encourages Kindness and Humility:
In the Noble Quran, Allah, the most gracious most high says:

And by the Mercy of Allah, you dealt with them gently. And had you been severe and harsh-hearted, they would have broken away from about you; so pass over (their faults), and ask (Allah's) Forgiveness for them; and consult them in the affair. Then when you have taken a decision, put your trust in Allah, certainly, Allah loves those who put their trust (in Him). [3:159]

The Prophet Muhammad said:
"Allah is not kind to him who is not kind to people." [Muslim & Bukhari]

Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "Allah is Forbearer and loves forbearance in all matters.''
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Mildness also brings human beings closer to one another, and on this count, Allah likes it very much.

`Aishah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said, "Allah is Forbearer and He loves forbearance, and rewards for forbearance while He does not reward severity, and does not give for any thing besides it (forbearance).''

Mildness is the opposite of harshness. Allah enjoins softness and dislikes stiffness in human relations. Allah assures of reward for gentle behaviour in society, not for unkindness or anything like that. However, inflexibility is preferred to flexibility when there arises a question of religious matters and the limits set by Allah.

Ibn Mas`ud (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,"Shall I not tell you whom the (Hell) Fire is forbidden to touch? It is forbidden to touch a man who is always accessible, having polite and tender nature.''

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: A man asked the Prophet (PBUH) to give him advice, and he (PBUH) said, "Do not get angry.'' The man repeated that several times and he (PBUH) replied (every time), "Do not get angry.''

Jarir bin `Abdullah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "He who is deprived of forbearance and gentleness is, in fact, deprived of all good.''

Abdullah ibn Abbas, the Prophet’s cousin, stated that he heard the Prophet saying: “A believer is not the one who eats his fill when his neighbour is hungry.” [Related by Al-Bukhari in Al-Adab Al-Mufrad, Al-Hakim and Al-Baihaqi].
  • Gentleness and Forgiveness are the Keys to paradise and an attribute of a True Muslim
{And march forth in the way (which leads to) forgiveness from your Lord, and for Paradise as wide as are the heavens and the earth, prepared for Al-Muttaqûn (the pious).

Those who spend [in Allâh's Cause - deeds of charity, alms, etc.] in prosperity and in adversity, who repress anger, and who pardon men; verily, Allâh loves Al-Muhsinûn(the good­doers).} [3: 133-134]

So, the Muttaqun and Muhsinun, i.e. the Muslims are those who share these amazing qualities. It is something each and every Muslim must attain.

Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I never felt any piece of velvet or silk softer than the palm of the Messenger of Allah (PBUH), nor did I smell any fragrance more pleasant than the smell of Messenger of Allah (PBUH). I served him for ten years, and he never said `Uff' (an expression of disgust) to me. He never said `why did you do that?' for something I had done, nor did he ever say `why did you not do such and such' for something I had not done.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "The dearest and nearest among you to me on the Day of Resurrection will be one who is the best of you in manners; and the most abhorrent among you to me and the farthest of you from me will be the pompous, the garrulous, and Al-Mutafaihiqun.'' The Companions asked him: "O Messenger of Allah! We know about the pompous and the garrulous, but we do not know who Al-Mutafaihiqun are.'' He replied: "The arrogant people.''

This gentleness, kindness, patience must be shown to all people. This includes non-Muslims. For Islam teaches Muslims, not only to tolerate non-Muslims but to show kindness to everyone we are at peace with. To deal with other people in a just, fair and mild manner is something that is encouraged. The Prophet Muhammad and his companions were leading example in this. -

Infact, kindness is not simply limited to people,

The Prophet also said:
"Those who are kind and considerate to Allah's creatures, Allah bestows His kindness and affection on them. Show kindness to the creatures on the earth so that Allah may be kind to you." [Abu Dawud and Tirmidhi]

Islam emphasises justice, equality between race, gender and rich and poor.

Misconception: How can Islam be called the religion of peace when it was spread by the sword?


It is a common complaint among some non-Muslims that Islam would not have millions of adherents all over the world, if it had not been spread by the use of force. The following points will make it clear, that far from being spread by the sword, it was the inherent force of truth, reason and logic that was responsible for the rapid spread of Islam.

1. Islam means peace.

Islam comes from the root word ‘salaam’, which means peace. It also means submitting one’s will to Allah (swt). Thus Islam is a religion of peace, which is acquired by submitting one’s will to the will of the Supreme Creator, Allah (swt).

2. Sometimes force has to be used to maintain peace.

Each and every human being in this world is not in favour of maintaining peace and harmony. There are many, who would disrupt it for their own vested interests. Sometimes force has to be used to maintain peace. It is precisely for this reason that we have the police who use force against criminals and anti-social elements to maintain peace in the country. Islam promotes peace. At the same time, Islam exhort it followers to fight where there is oppression. The fight against oppression may, at times, require the use of force. In Islam force can only be used to promote peace and justice.

3. Opinion of historian De Lacy O’Leary.

The best reply to the misconception that Islam was spread by the sword is given by the noted historian De Lacy O’Leary in the book "Islam at the cross road" (Page 8):

    "History makes it clear however, that the legend of fanatical Muslims sweeping through the world and forcing Islam at the point of the sword upon conquered races is one of the most fantastically absurd myth that historians have ever repeated."

4. Muslims ruled Spain for 800 years.

Muslims ruled Spain for about 800 years. The Muslims in Spain never used the sword to force the people to convert. Later the Christian Crusaders came to Spain and wiped out the Muslims. There was not a single Muslim in Spain who could openly give the adhan, that is the call for prayers.

5. 14 million Arabs are Coptic Christians.

Muslims were the lords of Arabia for 1400 years. For a few years the British ruled, and for a few years the French ruled. Overall, the Muslims ruled Arabia for 1400 years. Yet today, there are 14 million Arabs who are Coptic Christians i.e. Christians since generations. If the Muslims had used the sword there would not have been a single Arab who would have remained a Christian.

6. More than 80% non-Muslims in India.

The Muslims ruled India for about a thousand years. If they wanted, they had the power of converting each and every non-Muslim of India to Islam. Today more than 80% of the population of India are non-Muslims. All these non-Muslim Indians are bearing witness today that Islam was not spread by the sword.

7. Indonesia and Malaysia.

Indonesia is a country that has the maximum number of Muslims in the world. The majority of people in Malaysia are Muslims. May one ask, "Which Muslim army went to Indonesia and Malaysia?"

8. East Coast of Africa.

Similarly, Islam has spread rapidly on the East Coast of Africa. One may again ask, if Islam was spread by the sword, "Which Muslim army went to the East Coast of Africa?"

9. Thomas Carlyle.

The famous historian, Thomas Carlyle, in his book "Heroes and Hero worship", refers to this misconception about the spread of Islam: "The sword indeed, but where will you get your sword? Every new opinion, at its starting is precisely in a minority of one. In one man’s head alone. There it dwells as yet. One man alone of the whole world believes it, there is one man against all men. That he takes a sword and try to propagate with that, will do little for him. You must get your sword! On the whole, a thing will propagate itself as it can."

10. No compulsion in religion.

With which sword was Islam spread? Even if Muslims had it they could not use it to spread Islam because the Qur’an says in the following verse:
    "Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from error" [Al-Qur’an 2:256]

11. Sword of the Intellect.

It is the sword of intellect. The sword that conquers the hearts and minds of people. The Qur’an says in Surah Nahl, chapter 16 verse 125:
    "Invite (all) to the way of thy Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious." [Al-Qur’an 16:125]

12. Increase in the world religions from 1934 to 1984.

An article in Reader’s Digest ‘Almanac’, year book 1986, gave the statistics of the increase of percentage of the major religions of the world in half a century from 1934 to 1984. This article also appeared in ‘The Plain Truth’ magazine. At the top was Islam, which increased by 235%, and Christianity had increased only by 47%. May one ask, which war took place in this century which converted millions of people to Islam?

13. Islam is the fastest growing religion in America and Europe.

Today the fastest growing religion in America is Islam. The fastest growing religion in Europe is Islam. Which sword is forcing people in the West to accept Islam in such large numbers?

By Dr Zakir Naik



A fundamental benefit of marriage is to be safe from the devil and to safeguard the private parts. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said: "If a man marries, half of his religion is saved. Fear Allah for the remaining half."

The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said: "let one who is unable to marry fast, as fast for him is the means of controlling passion."

There is no benefit in a thing of which there is no pleasure. Allah created pleasure of the world with the object that if people have pleasure they will be eager to have lasting pleasure of the next world. To get this pleasure divine service is necessary. 

Marriage is a means of saving oneself from the oppression of sexual passion. The Heart is the root of all actions of a traveller towards the next world. Ibn Abbas RA said: "The worship of a man does not become perfect without divine service. Man has been created weak." Akramah and Mujahid explain that man cannot be patient regarding women. 

Allah says: "When there falls the darkness of night, seek refuge from its evils." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said: "0 Allah! I seek refuge to Thee from the evils of my ears, my heart and myself." He said: "I pray to Thee for purity of my mind and protection of my private parts."

The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said: "If the look of man falls on my woman, let him turn it towards himself and cohabit with his wife, in that case his evil desire will go away."

Jaber RA reported that once the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) looked to a certain woman. He soon went to his wife Zainab RA and performed his necessity. After that he came out and said: "If a woman comes in front, she comes as a devil. If one of you sees a woman who pleases him, let him come to his wife as what is near that woman is also near his wife."

The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said: "Do not go to a woman in absence of her husband as the devil runs through your veins like the circulation of blood." We asked him: "In your case also, O Rasoolullah? He said: "In my case also but Allah helped me over him and he submitted to me." This means: "I have been saved from the machinations of the devil."

Muslims 1/4 of World Population: US Survey 2009

According to the study, based on data from 232 countries and territories, Asia is home to nearly 20 percent of the global Muslim population.

Nearly one in four people worldwide is Muslim — and they are not necessarily where you might think, according to an extensive new study that aims to map the global Muslim population.

India, a majority-Hindu country, has more Muslims than any country except for Indonesia and Pakistan, and more than twice as many as Egypt.

China has more Muslims than Syria.

Germany has more Muslims than Lebanon.

And Russia has more Muslims than Jordan and Libya put together.

Nearly two out of three of the world’s Muslims are in Asia, stretching from Turkey to Indonesia.

The Middle East and north Africa, which together are home to about one in five of the world’s Muslims, trail a very distant second.

There are about 1.57 billion Muslims in the world, according to the report, “Mapping the Global Muslim Population,” by THE PEW FORUM on Religion & Public Life. That represents about 23 percent of the total global population of 6.8 billion.

CNN Report says: Nearly one in four people worldwide is Muslim -- and they are not necessarily where you might think, according to an extensive new study that aims to map the global Muslim population. CNN Story page says Islam winning converts in Western world The second-largest religion in the world after Christianity, Islam is also the fastest-growing religion. In the United States, for example, nearly 80 percent of the more than 1,200 mosques have been built in the past 12 years

TIMES ONLINE Says : Muslim population 'rising 10 times faster than rest of society'

Indonesia is the world’s most populated Muslim country with 203 million Muslims, about 13 percent of the world’s Muslim population.

Pakistan has 174 million Muslims, India 161 million, Bangladesh 145 million, Iran 74 million and Turkey 74 million, according to the study.

“Together these six countries are home to about 85% of Asia's Muslim population and more than half (53%) of the global Muslim population.”

Nearly half of Asia’s Muslims are concentrated in South Asia.

“The remainder are somewhat equally divided between Southeast-East Asia (26%) and Central-Western Asia (24%),” says the study.

It found that the Middle East and North Africa have 315 million Muslims, about 20 percent of the world’s Muslims.

“The Middle East-North Africa region has the highest percentage of Muslim-majority countries.”

The study also finds that there are 240 million Muslims in sub-Saharan Africa, making up about 15 percent of the global Muslim population.

One-third of them live in Nigeria, which has about 74 million Muslims, about half of its population.

The region is home to countries with very large Muslim majorities, including Mauritania (99%), Niger (99%), Somalia (99%), Mayotte (98%), Comoros (98%), Djibouti (97%), Senegal (96%), Gambia (95%), Mali (93%), Guinea (84%) and Sierra Leone (71%).
Muslim Minorities

Europe has 38 million Muslims, making up five percent of the continent’s population.
The study, described as the first-ever of its kind, indicates that one-fifth of Muslims (300 million) live in non-Muslim countries.

“There minority Muslim populations are often quite large.”

Hindu-majority India has the third-largest Muslim population after Indonesia and Pakistan.

“China has more Muslims than Syria, while Russia is home to more Muslims than Jordan and Libya combined.”

The study notes that China’s 22 million Muslims are distributed in every Chinese province, with the highest concentration in the western provinces, primarily Xinjiang, Ningxia and Gansu.

“Xinjiang is the only Muslim-majority province of China, with Muslims accounting for approximately 53% of the total population.”

The study finds that Europe has 38 million Muslims, making up five percent of the continent’s population, mostly concentrated in eastern and central Europe.

Russia has more than 16 million Muslims, the largest Muslim population in Europe.

According to the study, Germany has the biggest Muslim minority in western Europe, with more than four million population.

It put the number of Muslims in France, which was previously known to have the continent’s biggest Muslim minority, at 3.5 million.

Britain has fewer than two million Muslims, nearly 3 percent of the total population, while Italy has 36,000 Muslim populations, the smallest in Europe.

The study says there are nearly 4.6 million Muslims in the Americas, with nearly 2.5 million Muslims in the US and 700,000 in Canada.

It notes that Muslims make up 16 percent of Suriname’s population, the largest Muslim population in the Americas.

Argentina has a Muslim minority of 800,000, the largest in South America.

The figures presented by the study about Muslim populations in the West, particularly in Europe and the US, contradict the estimates usually reported by Muslim organizations in these regions.

Muslims in the US, for example, are commonly believed to number more than 7 million while France is believed to be home to more than six million Muslims.

Mom, will we eat anything this week?”

“Mom, will we eat anything this week?” 
 “Mom, will we eat anything this week?”
By Hasan Abdullah
While some of us spend the day squandering hundreds of pounds on expensive designer gear, over 30,000 children will die that day from poverty. While in some parts of the world people dispose their half-eaten kebabs, others, only a few hundred miles away would rejoice if only they could find a few dusty grains to eat.
While some spend a fortune on luxurious fur coats, others cannot afford a piece of cloth to wrap their dead. While some footballers earn over £14,000 a day, nearly half of the world population lives on less than £1.40 a day.

This is not some fictitious tale but an undisputable and sad reality. We live in a bizarre world where selfishness and greed are rampant; a world where your intellect can be questioned if you give precedence to aiding the needy over purchasing the latest smash hits album. Unfortunately many Muslims today have become accustomed to fulfilling their material desires and showing a total disregard for the needy.

Allah says in the Quran:

Have you seen him who belies the rewards and punishments of the Hereafter? He it is who drives away the orphan and does not encourage the feeding of the poor. [Quran 107:1-3]

Give to the near of kin his due, and also to the needy and the wayfarers. Do not squander your wealth wastefully; for those who squander wastefully are Satan's brothers, and Satan is ever ungrateful to his Lord. [Quran 17:26-27]
Prophet Muhammad (saw) said:
“He is not a believer who eats his fill while his neighbour remains hungry by his side.” How could we who have been blessed with Islam act in such a despicable manner? Will we only stand up when there is a death in our family? A single life is precious and we must make a stand now.
If anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind. [Quran 5:32]
By the time you finish reading this; approximately 20 children around the world would have died from poverty.

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) once had several coins that he asked his wife to distribute in charity. But due to the Prophet's illness at the time, she did not have an opportunity to give out the coins.

The Prophet also said: "Every act of goodness is charity." - Sahih Muslim, Hadith 496

The Prophet replied: "He should work with his hands and benefit himself and also give in charity (from what he earns)." The people further asked: "If he cannot find even that?" He replied: "He should help the needy who appeal for help." Then the people asked: "If he cannot do (even) that?"

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: "Charity is prescribed for each descendant of Adam every day the sun rises." He was then asked: "From what do we give charity every day?"

He also said: "Your smile for your brother is charity." - Fiqh-us-Sunnah, Volume 3, Number 98

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: "If I had (a mountain of) gold, I would love that, before three days had passed, not a single (coin) thereof remained with me if I found somebody to accept it (as charity), excluding some amount that I would keep for the payment of my debts." - Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 9, Hadith 334


"They ask you (O Muhammad) what they should spend in charity. Say: 'Whatever you spend with a good heart, give it to parents, relatives, orphans, the helpless, and travellers in need. Whatever good you do, God is aware of it.'" - The Holy Quran, 2:215

A humble Request to sisters!

I know, this note is quite long, I wonder people who complaints me of writing long articles do easily read the long novels and poetry happily with out any pain..!!

May Allah bless bless me, If ur eyes feel hurt for reading so long .. :

My dear sisters

I don’t care if u dislike my words or even hate me..

Since many of u have uploaded ur real pictures on Face Book and on other such social networking websites without even caring for any consequences..

Allah SWT said ::

And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what ordinarily appear thereof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms...." (Qur'an 24:30-31)

"O Prophet, tell your wives and daughters and the believing women that they should cast their outer garments over their bodies (when abroad) so that they should be known and not molested" (Qur'an 33:59).

That’s the direct order from Allah for females, to cover themselves and hide their beauty.. Because u are a pearl – not cheaper than diamonds!!

By the way, ever u wondered

from where we get pearls?

Deep down at the bottom of the ocean covered up and protected in a beautiful shell.

Where’s gold?

Way down in the mine, covered over with layers and layers of rock. We have to work hard to get to them.

Your body is sacred, far more precious than diamonds and pearls, and you should be covered too.

Yeah muslimah u are PEARL of islam – pearl of mankind!!


That’s just a stupid argument, was there any internet or media at the time when Quran was revealed?

Allah has directly ordered us to cover up, and that rule applies in offline and online life both!!

Its Not like you just hide your self Physically but display ur beauty through pictures sharing them on networking sites!


Since, the technology is so advanced.. No matter how much secure u make ur account there are always hacks and cracks to crush the so called PRIVACY settings!!

I know very well, u may NOT believe my words ::

But here are the proven facts:

The above two links even REJECTS the idea of uploading ur pictures with HIJAB

Unfortunately, the muslim ummah is sleeping so deep, that we even don’t realize the anti islamic propaganda.. If u just ever get chance of goggling rubbish pages on net, U would be amazed to see how the Hijabi girls are being presented in NON-muslim world. just to defame islam, they misuse the Muslimah’s pictures!!

Never forget all the net coverage is controlled by non-islamic hands..!!

Alright I know, u are thinking such cases may be exceptional or rare BUT still prevention is better than cure.

What’s the idea of posting pictures online by the way ? just to expose ur beauty or just to get the cheap comments on it ??

If u want to share ur pictures with some friend u can easily send them via mail in inbox!! But please stop uploading the pictures on networking sites!!


That’s another and MOST weak excuse that makes me burst in laughter.. LOL

Sorry im not being rude..

But tell me, are u trying to say that males shud also start covering their heads or face?
Or they should start wearing hijabs and niqabs..? lol


Yeah..I’m no one but the slave of Allah – I know exactly, I have NO rights to interfere in any one’s life…
But hey sisters!

That’s not the interference … Its some thing called as guidance – Just like a teacher is bound to teach the students, we all being the slaves of Allah are supposed to invite others towards the true path ..

Invite all to the way of your Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching. And argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious... [quran 16:125]

That’s all what Im doing..

U may refute me! But u can’t reject the order of Allah ::

and do not display yourselves like that of the times of ignorance…” [al-Ahzaab:32]

“O you Children of Adam! We have bestowed on you raiment to cover your shame as well as to be an adornment to you. But the raiment of righteousness, that is the best. Such are among the Signs of Allah, that they may receive admonition.” (Quran 7:26)

and not to show off their adornment” [al-Noor 24:31]

"In later (generations) of my ummah there will be women who will be dressed but naked. On top of their heads (what looks) like camel humps. They will not enter into paradise or (even) get a smell of it." (Muslim)

“There are two types of the people of Hell that I have not seen yet….women who are clothed yet naked, walking with an enticing gait…..” (Muslim).

Sahih Al-Bukhari Volume 6, Book 60, Hadith # 282
Narrated Safiya bint Shaiba (Radhiallaahu Ánha) "Aisha (Radhiallaahu Ánha) used to say: "When (the Verse): "They should draw their veils over their necks and bosoms," was revealed, (the ladies) cut their waist sheets at the edges and covered their faces with the cut pieces.

Abu Dawood Book 14, Hadith # 2482
Narrated Thabit ibn Qays (Radhiallaahu Ánhu): A woman called Umm Khallad came to the Prophet (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) while she was veiled. She was searching for her son who had been killed (in the battle) Some of the Companions of the Prophet (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said to her: You have come here asking for your son while veiling your face? She said: If I am afflicted with the loss of my son, I shall not suffer the loss of my modesty. Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said: You will get the reward of two martyrs for your son. She asked: Why is that so, oh Prophet of Allah? He replied: Because the people of the Book have killed him.

Sahih Al-Bukhari Volume 7, Book 72, Hadith # 715
Narrated 'Ikrima (Radhiallaahu Ánhu) narrates "Rifa'a divorced his wife whereupon 'AbdurRahman bin Az-Zubair Al-Qurazi married her. 'Aisha said that the lady (came), wearing a green veil. " It is a very long hadith but the point is the women of Sahaba wore the full veil..

Abu Dawood Book 2, Hadith # 0641
Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu'minin (Radhiallaahu Ánha) "Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said "Allah does not accept the prayer of a woman who has reached puberty unless she wears a veil."

My dear sisters!

Fear from the lord, obey ur creator! Fear from the fire that is made for disbelievers!
Fear from the Allah’s warth..

In the end, in the grave, on the day of judgment nothing will go along with you, except your DEEDS!!

Wake up O’ Muslimah! ..
Its my humble request to remove ur pictures! I care for u my sisters!!


So kindly don’t waste ur time in making insulting comments as they would be removed!!
May Allah bless me if my words offended any one ever!
