When a Muslim in a North American university or
college for the first time, he or she comes into
contact with a community whose culture and lifestyle
are diametrically opposed to the Islamic way of

culture of Western universities can only be
described as hedonistic, nihilistic and
narcissistic. That is to say, many inhibitions are
let loose and individual whims and fancies run wild.
The freshman year itself begins with orientation,
which while supposedly a process of introduction and
transition to the university for the first-year
student, is an opportunity for most participants to
drown themselves (sometimes literally) in alcohol
and pursue sexual opportunities.

This sets the stage for the school year. On any
given school day, a student can choose to go to
class, sleep in and skip the whole day, drink,
party, or study, all depending on how he or she
feels at that moment. Individual desires become the
first priority and everything else takes a back

uncontested reign of individualism is also reflected
in the values promoted by student councils and
governments. All lifestyles, especially those
furthest from religion, are promoted. Illicit,
unlimited sex is seen as something to be sought and
a basis for building a macho reputation (as long you
can avoid sexually transmitted diseases - for which
purpose condoms and condom machines proliferate
around campus). Homosexuality is something to be
proud of and promoted as a viable alternative.
Student campaigns and marches are organized against
those who dare to speak out and challenge this value
structure; these challengers are regarded as
reactionary, undemocratic and of course, religious
extremists and fundamentalists. In the university
community therefore, the self is god, and everyone
loves this god and engages in daily worship, and
obeys the laws that this god creates, and everyone
adjusts as these laws change on a daily basis.

The conscious Muslim makes every attempt to, while
pursuing his or her studies, increase their
knowledge of Quran and Sunnah, so that they may
better understand and apply the faith. The structure
of this Muslim’s day is around salat, and this
person juggles and adjusts their daily schedule and
makes every effort to insure that the five daily
salat are performed on time. Similarly, this
individual understands the approach of Ramadan and
prepares for it, again making the necessary
adjustments in order to make sure that they are on
top of their studies, that assignments are being
handed in, that the best marks are being achieved,
all while the requirements of the daily fasts are
being met.

the Muslim, Islam is never an excuse for slacking
off, whether in academics or with respect to other
responsibilities. As well, the observant Muslim may
choose to participate in those clubs, activities and
aspects of university life that do not contradict
the Quran and Sunnah and do not place the Muslim in
positions where he or she must compromise the faith.
Thus, the conscientious Muslim enters the University
atmosphere and struggles constantly to maintain a
structured set of priorities. He or she follows
Allah’s order: “So strive as in a race in good
deeds.” [Al-Ma’idah 5: 48],Transliteration:
Fastabiqu Al-Khayrati

On the other hand, there is also the borderline
Muslim, who knows his or her identity but whose
consciousness of Islam, due to upbringing or
experience, is not terribly strong. This individual
is on the ‘borderline’ because they are pulled one
way by their understanding of Islam and in the
opposite direction by the powerful pressures of the
university culture. Is it at all surprising that
many Muslims who are on the borderline succumb to
the pressures of the atmosphere around them and
become, at best, part-time Muslims?

the end, the challenge is great. All Muslims in the
university community have to struggle in order to
maintain their Islam. Those who are practicing,
committed and understand the objective of their
existence have further duties. They must invite the
border liners with hikmah (wisdom) and understanding
but with firmness as well. And they must inform the
university community at large about Islam in the
different ways that are available. Yes, of course
the challenge is great. But insha’ Allah, the reward
is much greater

the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful, may His Salaah
and Salaam Be upon His Messenger Muhammad, to

On the authority of Aboo Hurayrah (radhiyallaahu `anhu),
the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhe wa sallam) said:

" The strong believer is better and more beloved to
Allah than the weak believer, while there is good in
both. Guard over that which benefits you, seek
Allah's assistance, wa laa t`ajiz (don`t lend
yourself to things devoid of benefit, and this could
carry many meanings), and if something befalls you,
then don`t say `If only I would have done such and
such,` rather say,, `Qaddarallaahu wa ma shaa` fa`al`
(Allah ordained (this) and He does what He wills),
for verily the phrase `If I would have` makes way
for the work of Shaytaan."

The takhreej of the Hadeeth (where it can be found):

As-Syootee gathered it in Al-Jaami`us-Sagheer, and
Al-Albaanee numbered it #6650 and called it `hasan`.
He traced it to Saheeh Muslim, Ibn Maajah, and
Ahmad. He brought it in his summarized Muslim #1840
but doesn't mention why it is hasan, but he mentions
in his takhreej of As-Sunnah of Ibn Abee `Aasim that
As-Suyootee found a problem with Rabee`ah bin `Uthmaan
(one of the narrators).

What are the characteristics of the "strong

Imaam An-Nawawee (may Allah have mercy on him): "The
intended meaning of strength here is a firm will and
a desire to work for the Hereafter. So the one being
described as a strong believer is more bold and
stern against the enemy in Jihad, quicker to go out
(to fight) and searching for it (Jihaad), more firm
in the way he enjoins the good and forbids the evil,
(more firm) in his patience with the harm he faces
throughout all of that, and stronger in the way he
carries out difficult tasks for Allah's Sake. He
loves to pray, to fast, make thikr, and perform the
rest of the acts of worship, and he is more active
in seeking after these affairs, and he keeps a
closer watch over his performance of them." [Sharh
Muslim v.9, p.341, Daar Al-Ma`rifah printing].

Shaykh Muhammad bin Saalih Al-`Uthaymeen (may Allah
have merci on him): The strong believer is regarding
his emaan (Faith), as the intended meaning is not
physical strength. This is because physical strength
is harmful to a person who uses it to disobey Allah.
So physical strength is neither praiseworthy nor
blameworthy in itself. If he uses this strength for
what benefits him in this life and the Next, then it
is praiseworthy. But if he uses it to disobey Allah,
it becomes blameworthy.

So the meaning of strength in his statement (sallallaahu
`alayhe wa sallam), `The strong believer...` is
strength in eemaan, since the word `strong` refers
to the word `believer`, someone who has eemaan.

Similarly, one who would say `a strong man` if he
was referring to his manhood and masculinity. Along
the same line, the strong believer is strong in his
eemaan, because the strong believer has the strength
to carry out what Allah ordered him to do, and to
increase upon that by doing extra good deeds however
Allah likes. As for the weak believer, his eemaan is
weak, and that hinders him from performing his
duties and avoiding what is prohibited, so he is
always falling short." [Sharh Riyaadhis-Saaliheen,
v.3, p.91-2]

Shaykh Saleem Al-Hilaalee (may Allaah preserve him):

"Strong (as found in this Hadith refers to) strength
in his Deen, body, soul, and intellect, that which
helps him carry out (the deeds in) his Deen, call to
it, and defend it." [Bahjatun-Naathireen v.1, p.

"Verily (the believer's) strength and weakness is
found in how much he pushes himself, keeps himself
firm on obedience, and how much he works to benefit
the people and to keep evil away from them."
[Bahjatun-Nathireen v.1, p.183]

To summarize :

If one looks at the text of the Hadith itself, he
will find something very interesting. Notice that
the Prophet (pbuh) started by saying, "The strong
believer is better and more beloved to Allah than
the weak believer, while there is good in both..."
and then it may seem like the subject of the Hadith
shifts to something else. Rather, this Hadith is an
encouragement to be a strong believer from the
beginning to the end! Yes, after informing us about
the superiority of the strong believer, the Prophet
(pbuh) detailed some ways to become a strong
believer, giving us four pieces of advice, all of
them related to emaan:

1. Guard over what benefits you.

2. Seek Allah's assistance.

3. Don't lend yourself to things devoid of benefit.

4. Say "Qaddarllaahu wa ma shaa` fa`al" through

Hajj, Haj, Hajj Akbar, what is Haj, perform Haj, Haji


Hajj or pilgrimage to Mecca is one of the five pillars of Islam. Hajj was made obligatory in the 9th year of Hijra. The Holy Prophet sent off 300 Muslims under the leadership of Hazrat Abubakr Siddique (may Allah be pleased with him) to Mecca so that they could perform Hajj. That was the year when it was banned for the Mushrikeen (those who associate partners with Allah) to enter Ka?ba. It was also made unlawful to perform Tawaaf (circling of Ka?ba) with naked body.

The following year, 10th Hijra, the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) announced a head of time he himself would perform Hajj that year. He led tens of thousands of Muslims to Hajj that year and demonstrated to Muslims how to perform all the rites and rituals of the Hajj. This Hajj is known in history as Hajjatul Wida? or Farewell Pilgrimage because this proved to be the last Hajj the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) performed. At the end of this farewell pilgrimage, the divine revelation that had started some 22 years ago came to an end with the following verse of Surah Al-Maidah:


On Whom is the performance of Hajj (Pilgrimage to Mecca) incumbent?
The performance of Hajj is incumbent on all Muslims, at least once in a life-time, if circumstances permit, i.e., if they are in a position both physically and materially to undertake the journey to Mecca, and make sufficient provision for their dependents during the period of their absence

Qa'da-tul-Oala and Qa'datul-Akhira

What does the term Qa'da-tul-Oala mean?

The reverential sitting posture that one adopts after the completion of the two Rak'ats of a prayer, consisting of three or four, for reciting tashahhud is called Qa'datul-Oola

What is Qa'datul-Akhira?

The final reverential sitting posture which a worshipper assumes after the completion of the prescribed number of Rak'ats of any particular prayer, for the recitation of tashahhud, salawat and du'a is called Qa'datul Akhira.

Kinds of Prayers:

There are five kinds of Prayers:

  1. Fard al'-ain, i.e., the compulsory prayer that must not be missed on any account whatsoever. This obligatory prayer must be offered at any cost for if one fails to do so he or she will be liable to severe punishment. The nature of its importance is evident from the fact that if one denies its obligatory nature, he or she is classed as an unbeliever.

  3. Fard al-kifayah is the kind of prayer which should preferably be offered by all those present at the time, but one at least out of the group must offer it to free the others from responsibility; for example, if any one individual from amongst the inhabitants of a locality where Death of a Muslim has taken place or from those who join the funeral procession to the cemetery offer the 'Funeral Prayer', the obligation of all concerned is fulfilled.
  4. Wajib is a prayer which comes next in rank of Fard al'ain in accordance with the importance attached to if by the Holy Prophet.
  5. Sunnat-ul-mu'akkadah is the class of prayer which the Holy Prophet used to offer daily without fail and has ordered his followers to do so. One is liable to be questioned for neglecting to offer the same without some very cogent reasons.
  6. Sunnatu ghairil-mu'akkadah is the kind of prayer which the Prophet offered occasionally and desired his followers to do so.
  7. Nafl is a voluntary prayer and it is commended for the uplift of one's soul, and for the acquirement of spiritual benefits.

 Kinds of Fard prayers

  1. The daily obligatory Prayers.

  2. The special congregational Prayers on Fridays.

Azan is the first call to Prayer

When and why is the Azan uttered?

The Azan is uttered in a loud voice to announce to the faithful that it is time for the Obligatory Prayer and to invite them to offer the same.

How is Azan recited?

Azan is recited in a loud voice by the Muezzin (the crier) facing the direction of Ka'ba in the following words which are said in the order mentioned:

(1) Allahu Akbar

i.e. "Allah is Most Great" (four times).

(2) Ash-hadu an la ilaha ill-Allah

i.e., "I bear witness that there is none worthy of being worshipped except Allah" (twice)

(3) Ash-hadu anna Muhammad-ar-rasoolullah

i.e., "I bear witness that Muhammad is the Apostle of Allah" (twice)

(4) Hayya 'alas-Salah

i.e., "Come to Prayer" (turning the face alone to the right and saying it twice)

Same occurrences nullify tayammum also?

Yes; the same occurrences nullify Tayammum also, but in addition Tayammum is nullified as soon as the cause for performing it is removed i.e., if the sick person removers, or, if recourse has been taken to it for lack of water, and access to water becomes possible.

The following three acts are forbidden without the performance of Wudu or Tayammum as the case may be:

  1. Prayer
  2. Walking round the Holy Ka'ba in Mecca
  3. Carrying or touching the Holy Quran

Note: Children who have not attained the age of discretion, i.e., about seven years, can carry the Holy Quran for the purpose of studying.

Does Wudu convey any inner meaning besides the cleanliness of the body?

Yes, the primary object is cleanliness or purity, but spiritual cleanliness and purity, i.e., freedom from sins which is the main object of religion. It is preferable, therefore, to recite the following after Wudu:

Allahummaj'alni minattawwabeena waj'alni minal mutatahahhireen.

'O Allah! make me from among those who repent for their sins and from among those who keep themselves pure.

Ghusl (Bath)

Ghusl should be made in a place of total privacy and one should not face towards the Kiblah while making Ghusl. Ghusl may be performed standing or seated, preferably seated. Use sufficient water, don't skimp nor be wasteful. One should abstain from speaking while performing Ghusl. It is better not to read any Kalimah or Aayah while bathing. Be aware of these rules whilst making Ghusl.

Ghusl becomes obligatory after:

  1. Sexual intercourse
  2. Discharge or effusion of semen
  3. Completion of menses and confinement

The obligatory condition that must be fulfilled for a valid performance of an obligatory Ghusl are:

  1. To rinse the mouth thoroughly, so that all the parts are cleaned properly.
  2. To rinse the nose right upto the nasal bone

  2. He or she should wash the hands upto the wrists thrice
  3. Then the private parts must be washed thoroughly thrice
  4. Filth must be removed, if there be any, from any of the parts of the body.
  5. One should then perform an ablution
  6. One should lastly wash thrice all the parts of the body, including the hair thoroughly.



When a person is sick or access cannot be had to water, one may perform what is called Tayammum in place of Wudu or Ghusl.

The essential requisites for the performance of a Tayammum are:

  1. To have the intention in mind to perform the Tayammum for the removal of impurities
  2. To strike pure earth lightly with the palms of both the hands
  3. To pass the palms of the hands over the face once
  4. To again strike lightly pure earth with the palms of both hands and rub alternately from the tips of the fingers to the elbows, the forearms and the hands.

The acts or circumstances which make the Wudu void are:

  1. Answering the call of nature; discharge of semen or issue of worm or sandy stone or any impure matter from the front or the hind private parts
  2. The passage of wind from the hind private part
  3. The act of vomiting a mouthful of matter
  4. Emission of blood, puss or yellow matter from a wound, boil, pimple, etc., to such an extent that is passes the limits of the mouth of the wound, etc.
  5. Loss of consciousness through sleep, drowsiness, etc.
  6. Temporary insanity, fainting fit, hysteria or intoxication.

The obligatory Acts in the performance of Wudu

  1. Washing the face
  2. Washing both the arms upto the elbows.
  3. Brushing over a quarter of the head with wet hands
  4. Washing both feet up to the ankles

  2. If a person wears impermeable foot-gear after the performance of the Wudu, it is not necessary to remove it for a fresh Wudu. One may just pass over it wet fingers as if one were tracing lines on it. Travelers can take advantage of this concession for three days and three nights, others for one day and one night.

The Muslim must seek to remember Allah at all times. He must be mindful that everything he is, everything he does, everything he knows and understands, is due to the Mercy of Allah.

most fundamental and the most important teaching of
Prophet Muhammad (blessings of Allah and peace be
upon him) is faith in the unity of God. This is
expressed in the primary Kalimah of Islam as "There
is no deity but Allah" (La ilaha illallah). This
beautiful phrase is the bedrock of Islam, its
foundation and its essence. It is the expression of
this belief which differentiates a true Muslim from
a kafir (unbeliever), mushrik (one who associates
others with God in His Divinity) or dahriyah (an

The acceptance or denial of this phrase produces a
world of difference between man and man. The
believers in it become one single community and
those who do not believe in it form an opposing
group. For the believers there is unhampered
progress and success in this world and in the
hereafter, while failure and ignominy are the
ultimate lot of those who refuse to believe in it.

But the difference between the believers and the
unbelievers does not result from the mere chanting
of a few words. Obviously, the mere utterance of a
phrase or two is not in itself important. The real
difference lies in the conscious acceptance of this
doctrine and complete adherence to it in practical
life. Mere repetition of the word 'food' cannot dull
hunger; mere chanting of a medical prescription
cannot heal the disease.

In the same way, if the Kalimah is repeated without
any understanding, it cannot work the revolution
which it is meant to bring about. This can occur
only if a person grasps the full meaning of the
doctrine and accepts and follows it in letter and
spirit. We avoid fire because we know that it burns;
we keep away from poison because we know that it can
kill. Similarly, if the real meanings of Tawhid are
fully grasped, we avoid, in belief as well as in
action, every form of disbelief, atheism and
polytheism. This is the natural consequence of
belief in the Unity of God.

1st Place Muslim Matrimonials - Islamic Articles - The Necessity of Marriage



Allah created
man in a manner that he is incomplete and imperfect without
a spouse. Man may upgrade his knowledge, faith and
excellencies, but he shall never reach the desired
perfectness if he does not get a spouse. (Be it man or
woman). Nothing can substitute marriage and the raising of a
family. Male and female sexes need each other both from
spiritual as well as physical points of view. And each of
them is incomplete and imperfect when alone and in solitude.
And when they get placed beside each other, they complete
each other. This is the law of creation and it commands all
the universe.

The Quran calls
man and woman as the dress of each other.

(wives) are as a dress for you (husbands) and you are as a
dress for them"

Surah Baqara v187

That is to say,
they are the completive, counterpart, and the guard of each
other's honour and secrets, and each one needs the other.
Man can not live honourably and eminently in society without
dress. He feels himself in a state of imperfectness. The
lonely person too feels himself imperfect.

Dress saves and
protects a person from the effects of winter and summer. The
spouse too saves one from worries, futility, shelterlessness,
aimlessness and solitude similarly. Dress decorates man,

Her tales of potential matches gone wrong are humorous, candid and disconcerting. From the brother who announces up front he will not consider marrying her because she is only 5’3″ but wants to meet her for dinner anyway, to the one who agrees to meet her at 5 p.m. for introductions over coffee, only to show up at 7 because he was busy watching a soccer match on T.V. and who thereafter proceeds to pocket her change from the Dutch-treat evening along with his, to the one who admits he is only meeting her and her family because his mother insisted it was time for him to get married, although he has no interest – Sister Shelina is left to wonder where the “good” men are and why they are not interested in her and her friends.

 Greediness, backbiting, lying, fraud, corruption, and other vices are all different forms of meanness and evil which originate from meanness of the soul and baseness of character. A noble and dignified soul will be free from such evils as these are too low for a noble soul. Imam Ali said about some evil deeds and their bad affects on man: “He who adopts greed as a habit devalues himself; he who discloses his hardship agrees to humiliation; and he who allows his tongue to over power his soul debases the soul.

“Why do we have to pray five times a day?” “Why are dogs and hogs regarded unclean (najis)?” “Why is an animal slaughtered in a non-Islamic way forbidden (haram) and unclean?” These are but a few of the many questions asked by our youngsters about the laws of the Shari’ah. They want to “rationalize” each and every law of the shari’ah; they want to know the reason and purpose of the legislation of these laws. Before explaining the validity or otherwise of the “rationalization” of the shari’ah, it seems necessary to clarify the fundamental attitude of a Muslim towards the shari’ah.

The first basic thing is to make it clear in one’s mind – one was not born a gay or a lesbian. These deviations are simple illnesses of the soul, mind, and body that arise with time. Homosexuality can be cured through free will and by reflecting upon the physical capabilities God has provided mankind with. Instead of giving in to weak desires caused by some vague thoughts, believing in oneself by using proper intellect and determination is the solution. One should remain humble and thankful to God for all His bounties and remain in constant fear of His wrath.

Bahrain: Scores of civilians are being killed by Bahraini government forces and that of other Gulf countries. Saudi Arabia invades Bahrain and begins attacking even hospitals and civilian areas, in complete violation of the Geneva Convention.

First of all, what does it even mean to “have a pure intention” when it comes to being pals with a non-Mahram? Second of all, even if you have no ill intentions, Shaitan has promised to mislead any person that he can, so what makes you think you’re immune to his whispers? We have already been clearly warned in the Holy Qur’an, “Did I not charge you, O children of Adam, that you should not serve the Shaitan? Surely he is your open enemy.” (36:60) We have to be on guard and be able to abstain from situations that are not only spiritually harmful but even potentially spiritually harmful.

Last Sermon of Our Beloved Prophet (SAWS) Islamic Articles



(In the Name of Allah, the Most Magnificent, the Most Merciful)

The sermon was collected by different narrations and the following are certain parts of it and the authentication needs to be checked, the last sermon was delivered by our Beloved Prophet (SAWS) to the mankind on the ninth day of Dhul Hijah, 10 A.H (632 A.D) in the valley known as Mount Arafat.

“O People, lend me an attentive ear, for I know not whether, after this year, I shall ever be amongst you again. Therefore, listen to what I am saying to you very carefully and take these words to those who could not be present today.

No Interest on Investment:

O People, just as you regard this month, this day, this city as sacred, so regard the life and property of every Muslim as a sacred trust. Return the goods entrusted to you to their rightful owners. Hurt no one so that no one may hurt you. Remember that you will indeed meet your Lord, and that He will indeed reckon your deeds. Allah has forbidden you to take interest, therefore, all interest obligations shall henceforth be waived. Your capital, however, is yours to keep. You will neither inflict nor suffer inequity. Allah has judged that there shall be no interest and that all interest due to Abbas bin Abdul-Muttalib (the prophet’s uncle) shall henceforth be waived.

Beware of Satan:

Every right arising out of homicide in pre-Islamic days is henceforth waived and the first such right I waive is that arising from the murder of Rabiyah bin Al-Harith (relative of the prophet). O Men, the unbelievers indulge in tampering with the calendar in order to make permissible that which Allah forbade, and to forbid that which Allah had made permissible. With Allah the months are twelve; four of them are holy; three of these are successive and one occurs singly between the months of Jumadah and Shaaban. Beware of Satan, for the safety of your religion. He has lost all hope that he will ever be able to lead you astray in big things, so beware of following him in small things.

Rights of Women:

O People, it is true that you have certain right with regard to your women, but they also have rights over you. If they abide by your right then to them belongs the right to be fed and clothed in kindness. Do treat your women well and be kind to them for they are your partners and committed helpers. And it is your right that they do not make friends with any one of whom you do not approve, as well as never commit adultery.

O People, listen to me in earnest, worship Allah, say your five daily prayers, fast during the month of Ramadhan, and give your wealth in zakat. Perform Hajj if you can afford to. All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab, nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over a black, nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety and good action. Learn that every Muslim is the brother of another Muslim, and that Muslims constitute one brotherhood. Nothing shall be legitimate to a Muslim which belongs to a fellow Muslim unless it was given freely and willingly. Do not, therefore, do injustice to your selves.

The Day of Judgment:

Remember, one day you will appear before Allah and answer for your deeds. So beware, do not stray from the path of righteousness after I am gone.

O People, no prophet or apostle will come after me and no new faith will be born. Reason well, therefore, O People, and understand my words which I convey to you. I leave behind me two things, the Quran and my example, the Sunnah, and if you follow these you will never go astray.

All those who listen to me shall pass on my words to others, and those to others again; and may the last ones understand my words better that those who listen to me directly. Be my witness O Allah, that I have conveyed Your message to Your people.


Slaves of the Monetary Fund Islamic Articles



Allama Iqbal says: “In splendour, in seduction and in grace, the buildings of the banks outsoar the houses of God; In appearance it is trade, in reality gambling; The gain of one is sudden death to millions, Science, Philosophy, College, Constitution, Preach man’s equality and suck man’s blood, Want and unemployment, lewdness and intoxication, Who says the gifts of Occident are few?”.

Colonial rule over the Muslim countries helped them establish a strong hold over the Muslims by making them slaves forever. In the past they were in the practice of selling them out as slaves and in the present they are in the practice of making them slaves by monetary methods and strategies. They are the Slaves of the World Bank and slaves of IMF. They are being monitored and controlled by the so called funding organizations. Source loans they give restrict the Muslims to use the money where it is not even required.

The denominating affects on the 3rd world and the Muslims countries disturb the social system Muslims countries. Every person is under the debt of these controlling authorities one way or another. Then they name it foreign aid. Surprisingly most of the people are not aware of the bad effects of these policies on the economic conditions of a country. Every child born in a country under debt gets debt in inheritance. All the rest of his life is spent as a slave bought by the world back. Muslims in the present time are like a machine that is controlled by the world powers and the funding organizations.

Eric de Mare states: “Under the prevailing monetary system none of us lives in a true (economic) democracy. We live under an oligarchy that is all powerful, permanent, responsible to no one and directly or indirectly dominated and restricts every individual and every government in the world … … …”

Rasool Allah said (S.A.W): “Allah has cursed the one who takes interest, the one who pays it, the one who writes the contract and the one who witnesses the contract”.

Muslims have lost their ways because of there being negligent to the facts and orders of Allah mentioned in the holy Quran. Quran has all rules and regulations that Muslims should follow. Therefore Muslims need to follow the holy Quran to break the slavery they are in. now it is time that Muslims break the chains and strike back rather than being slaves forever.


Now Learn Online How to Read and Recite The Holy Quran Properly! Islamic Articles

The Quran was first revealed in Arabic. It still remains in its original form and believers say that God has made his concern to preserve the Quran in its original form. The word ‘Islam’ comes from Arabic word ’salama’ meaning peace, purity, submission and obedience. Islam in a religious point of view means submitting yourselves to the will of God.

The beauty and essence of Holy Quran is enhanced by the fact that it is written in a language that is as graceful as Arabic. Arabic is a great dialect and has a unique calligraphy and that makes the Arabic Quran more and more intriguing to read. The Quran in any other language may at times miss the essence of what the writer wants to say. This is the main reason why many people still believe in reciting the Quran in Arabic although there are many translations for the book that are available. Not only people following the Quran do so but also people who do their research and study work on religion prefer studying the Quran in its most pristine form. There is a certain kind of rhythm that is associated with Quran and it only comes while reading it in Arabic and no other language.


All pronunciations, intonations and caesuras that were used by Prophet Muhammad must be used in a very effective way while reciting the Holy Quran in Arabic. The feel that you get while reciting the Quran in Arabic is very unique and peaceful and you will not attain that state of mind while reciting the Holy Quran in any other language. Learning of Quran in its elementary form is more satisfying than doing it any other language. Reciting Quran with expert tutors (Quran Hafiz) can be more understanding and knowledgeable.

There are many online websites and software’s that are dedicated to the work of teaching people Quran in its primary form that is in Arabic. You can buy such websites membership or use the software’s they provide. However these ways can only give you rudimentary knowledge about the Holy Quran. Arabic Quran is a very deep subject if taken as a field of research and scholars are still trying to understand the hidden meaning of phrases that are used in the Quran.

It started in 3114B.C. and lasts for 5126 years until 2012. With the end of the 4th cycle comes… the beginning of the 5th cycle. The Maya believe that in the 5th cycle the ancient wisdom of the Maya will be rediscovered by the world and it will be a new dawn for mankind. Mayans are highly skilled people and are capable of creating many different calendars. It is said that the information available in the calendar is very accurate.

Astronomical Facts Regarding December 21, 2012:

Every year 21st December is seen to be a day winter solstice. It is the day when the sun is at its southernmost point. Besides Winter solstice, others claim that the Earth and the Milky Way’s center will align together, leading to undesirable disasters.

Islamic Prophecies about End of the World

We can derive a lot of information about historical events and future prophecies from Quran as it is the book that reveals many truths about the creation of this world and other natural phenomenon. There are many signs of doomsday stated in Quran and told by Prophet (PBUH) as it was one of the duties of God’s Messenger to unveil the end of the world.

“God is the Knower of the future; He does not permit anyone to unveil such knowledge. Only through the messenger that He chooses does He reveal future and past events” 72:27

Being Muslims we believe that only God has the knowledge of future and he has unveiled few signs through His Messenger (PBUH) through which we can conclude the time of end of this world but still no one ever can judge the exact time.

“The Hour (End of the World) is surely coming; I will keep it almost hidden. For each soul must be paid for its works.” 20:15

End of the World Coded in Quran:

Quran has stated about the culmination of this world as:

“The day will come when this earth will be substituted with a new earth, and also the heavens, and everyone will be brought before GOD, the One, the Supreme.” 14:48

“When the horn is blown once. The earth and the mountains will be carried off and crushed; utterly crushed. That is the day when the inevitable event will come to pass.” 69:13-15

Holy Quran and Modern Science Islamic Articles

The Big Bang Theory and Quran!

  • Modern Science: Astronomers of today accept the big bang philosophy for the creation of this universe. According to the theory, 15billion years ago a primordial mass exploded and the universe was formed. This was discovered somewhere in 1973.
  • The Quran: “Do not the unbelievers see that the Heavens and the earth were joined together, and then We split them apart.” (21:30)

Expansion of the Universe

  • Modern science: “The universe is not static, as had previously been thought, it is expanding”
  • The Quran: “And the firmament, We constructed with power and skill and verily We are expanding it” (51:47)

Reality of Sun’s Orbit

  • Modern Science: Previous theories stated that sun is motionless in the center of the solar system with all the planets revolving around it. But modern science tells us today that the sun too is in motion along with the planets, and travels at 150 miles per second takes about 200 million years to complete one revolution around the center of our Milky Way Galaxy and 25 days to make one complete rotation around its own axis.
  • The Quran: “It is He who created the night and the day, and the sun and the moon, all (the celestial bodies) swim along, each in its orbit with its own motion.” (21:33)

Invasion of Space by Human Beings

  • Modern Science: After launching of the Russian Satellite, Sputnik I in 1957, the human interest in the space took form. Entailed by several incidents including man’s landing on moon, human dream of conquering space was given a reality.
  • The Quran: “O assembly of Jinns and humans, if you can penetrate the regions of the heavens and the earth, then penetrate them! You will not penetrate them save with a power (of God).” (55:33)

Earth’s Ozone Layer

  • Modern Science: Science proves that Earth is frequently attacked by meteoroids that collapse by sun rays. Similarly the dangerous UV radiation is absorbed by the Ozone layer around our planet, thus protecting it and making us live on earth.
  • The Quran: “And We have made the atmosphere a protective roof, yet do they turn away from the Signs which these things point to.” (21:32)

The Creation of Mankind:

  • Modern Science: Through powerful microscopes, ultra sound and fiber optics technology, the science of embryology shows that life is generated by eggs. Here are the processes defined by modern embryology:
  1. Fertilization takes place with only one sperm among several tens of millions produced by man.
  2. Implantation of the blastocyst in the uterus
  3. The human embryo is similar to a leech from days 7-24, when it clings to the endometrium of the uterus.
  4. The internal ears appear before the eyes, and the brain appears last.
  • The Quran:
  1. “God fashioned man from a small quantity (of sperm)” (16:4)
  2. “Then We placed him as a drop in a place of rest” (23:13)
  3. “Then We made the drop into a leech like structure…” (23:14)
  4. “And He (God) gave you hearing and sight and feeling and understanding.” (32:9)

The Quran describes not only the development of external form but also the internal stages – the stages inside the embryo of its creation and development, emphasizing major events recognized by contemporary science.

Existence of Two Genders

  • Modern Science: Science tells us that everything from animals to plants and even bacteria are divided into pairs, male and female.
  • The Quran: “Hallowed is He, Who created pairs in all things, those that grow from the earth and of themselves, and what they know not.” (36:36)

What Is Islam And Who Are The Muslims – The Truth Revealed… Islamic Articles

This is what Islam and Muslims really are:

For every Muslim, the Quran is not just a book but a complete way of life and this is why they follow Quran persistently throughout their lives. Now believing every word in the Quran to be the exact message from Allah Almighty, here are only a couple of verses quoted from the Quran:

“Fight in the cause of God against those who fight you, but do not transgress limits, God does not love transgressors” (2:190)

“If they seek peace, then you seek peace. And trust in God for He is the One that hears and knows all things” (8:61)

These two verses have been cited to eliminate your concept of Islam as being violent, aggressive and destructive. The word “Islam” itself means peace and harmony. In these two verses, Allah has clearly stated that he can’t love aggressors and fight is only permitted for the reason of self-defense. There are innumerable verses like these, refraining people from fights and suggesting them to find alternatives and maintain peace. War is only allowed when there’s no other way left and your lives and possessions are in a serious threat. Now think for a moment, can a religion talking about peace to such an extent create terrorists, extremists and fanatics? All Islam talks about is peace – peace with God, peace with oneself, and peace with the creations of God!

Now look at this way – if Islam talks about peace, then why are the Muslims terrorists, why all this bloodshed? And the answer you’ll get is quite simple, “because they are NOT Muslims at all!” The true identity of a Muslim is not of an extremist, but Muslim is the one who believes in oneness of God, in the angels created by him, in the Prophets sent by him, in the Day of Judgment, and most importantly in “INDIVIDUAL ACCOUNTABILITY OF ACTIONS.”

Muslims are the followers of Allah, and they do this through the guidance of Quran. For every Muslim or non-Muslim who wants to know the reality of Islam and Muslims, Quran is the leading path. Understand the Quran, and you’ll understand how beautiful and peaceful Islam is.


What Is Islam And Who Are The Muslims – The Truth Revealed… Islamic Articles


Islam, the second biggest religion of the world after Christianity has around 1.2 billion followers who call themselves Muslims. Day by day, the circle if Islam is widening at quite a commendable rate, i.e. 2.9% increase in its followership per year, which is amazingly higher than the number of births which is increasing at a rate of only 2.3% yearly.

This increasing popularity of the religion has made many people probe deeper into what actually Islam is and who are the real Muslims? Where media of the west is constantly seeding the young minds with a negative concept of Islam, it still remains one of the biggest religions of the world with a tremendous number of supporters.

This is what “YOU” think about Islam and Muslims:

When the questions like “What is Islam?” or “Who are the Muslims?” are raised, the only answers you’ll get are “Islam is the religion of war and Muslims are the terrorists”. But there is more to Islam than such false accusations, and people round the Globe are advised to explore it themselves and then judge the true character of Islam and Muslims – you’ll be shocked by how different your answers will be when compared to what the western media portrays!

The Holy Quran and the religion Islam say something else – Whereas the west is busy propagating its own established fake story regarding this sacred religion. It wouldn’t be wise for you to judge something unless you don’t know about it, and it’s your responsibility as an individual to find out why so many Muslims are following Islam with all their hearts and mind, and to find out the force uniting these Muslims despite the bogus claims made against their religion. If nothing else, this finding will at least let you know 22% of the world’s population much better!

Marriage with Qur’an, a Sinful Act in Islam Islamic Articles



The Concept

large number of feudal in backward areas had married their daughters to the Quran. The ceremony takes place after the girl of the family is asked to take a bath, after which a Qur’an is put before her as the men folk apologize to her for the ritual which would condemn the girl never to get married but to read the Quran every day.

Reasons for Marrying with Qur’an

These sorts of marriages are conducted to prevent their share of the land going to them and thus avoid redistribution of land.

Another reason is that poor parents are not able to find perfect match for their daughter so to prevent her for disgrace, they marry her with Qur’an.

Those who are not so rich to pay dowry to their daughters find it easy to marry her with Qur’an to keep away from humiliating gossips about them.

Islamic Rulings

These marriages are totally illegitimate in Islam and have nothing to do with the religion. This is all about power, control and extreme of ignorance.  Women are not valued enough to consider how their entire lives, and any dreams or hopes they might have had, their lives are ruined by a ‘tradition’ that is inhumane and beyond any rational explanation.

Islam never allows coming off from the world for the sake of religion.  how can one claim that it is right or allowable?  Although Islam requires complete devotion towards religion and Quran Recitation is obligated to all Muslims but this is abusive to marry a girl with Qur’an to make her recite it daily.

Islam doesn’t give men unbounded power to ill-treat women when he is given the status of leader of the house’.  Islam does not want sheep for its disciples. men are required to protect women from abuses, not to legalize what has been illegal in Islamic societies.


We need to clean up our societies from these sorts of unlawful acts to seek God’s pleasure. As God Himself guides us in Qur’an as:

“You shall encourage those of you who are single to get married. They may marry the righteous among your male and female servants, if they are poor. GOD will enrich them from His grace. GOD is Bounteous, Knower.”  [24:32]

The importance marriage receives its greatest emphasis from the following Hadith of the Prophet (PBUH),

“Marriage is my sunnah. Whosoever keeps away from it is not from me.”

“When a man gives his daughter in marriage and she dislikes it, the marriage shall be annulled.” Once a virgin girl came to the Prophet (PBUH) and said that her father had married her to a man against her wishes. The Prophet (PBUH) gave her the right to repudiate the marriage. [Abu Dawud]

Parents Responsibilities

The responsibilities of parents in Islam regarding daughters can b best understood by this Hadith:

Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) said: He, who brought up two girls properly till they grew up, he and I would come (together) (very closely) on the Day of Resurrection, and he interlaced his fingers (for explaining the point of nearness between him and that person)

Forced marriages are discouraged in Islam.

The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said: “A previously-married woman should not be married without being consulted, and a virgin should not be married without asking her permission.” They said, “O Messenger of Allah, how is her permission given?” He said, “By her silence.”

Parents are responsible for best possible growth of their children and selecting best match for their marriage.


Muslim parents are required to act upon the rulings of their religion neglecting the unlawful and disgusting customs and traditions that are brought up by humans. May God help us in abolishing iniquitous practices from our societies that are result of ignorance and betrayal from Islamic teachings.
