Amazing Wealth


Tuesday, 06 August 2019 10:10

Do you wish to have such wealth which can never be stolen by thugs and thieves, guarantees peace, secures happiness, protects from misery and mental turmoil… and even saves one from many serious sins? Yes indeed, every sane person wants such wealth, and to acquire it is very simple — BE CONTENT. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) has clearly declared, “Verily true wealth is the wealth of the heart (contentment).” (Saheeh Bukhaari #6446)

The greatness, excellence, brilliance and magnitude of the noble attribute of contentment can be clearly understood from the practice of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma). On the advice of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), during the great ‘ibaadat of tawaaf of the Ka’bah Shareef, he would make the following du‘aa between the Rukn-e-Yamaani and Hajr Aswad: “O Allah! Bless me with contentment in that which you have given me!”. (Mustadrak Haakim #1674) Subhaanallah! The greatest Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) advising that in the greatest of places one should keep begging Allah Ta‘ala for such an immensely great wealth… the lesson is for his Ummah to acquire this true wealth and enjoy its benefit.

Special Gift


Tuesday, 06 August 2019 10:07

Gifting is not only an expression of love – it is a means of creating and enhancing love. When a person gives a gift, his simple gesture conveys the sentiments of appreciating and honouring the one who is receiving the gift. Hence, when one receives a gift, the love for the one giving the gift is automatically enhanced as one values the sentiment and effort behind the gift.

Just as people give gifts to one another during their lifetime, it is possible to give a ‘gift’ to a person after his demise as well – through conveying the reward of a good deed to the person.

Since the occasion of qurbaani has once again arrived, it is the ideal opportunity, for those who have the means, to carry out nafl qurbaani and convey the reward to their deceased parents, spouse, siblings, asaatizah, etc.

It has been narrated from Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) that he would slaughter two rams (on the occasion of qurbaani); one for Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and the other for himself. When he was asked the reason for doing this, he replied, “He (i.e. Nabi [sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam]) instructed me to do this, so I will never leave it.” (Sunan Tirmizi #1495)

Q&A: Instagram Influencer


Tuesday, 06 August 2019 10:03

Q: I am a Muslimah who has a large circle of friends. Since I am a quite popular and sociable person, I have been considering joining Instagram. Through daily posts about the things that I do or by sharing my daily experiences with people, I will get many followers and will become an ‘Influencer’ . This has the potential to become a profitable business venture through adverts which I will post to my followers. Your Islamic advice and guidance on this proposal is most appreciated (question summarized).

A: You have asked for Islamic guidance and advice on the matter. We commend you upon this. A Muslim’s primary and greatest concern is that Allah Ta‘ala must be pleased with him. In order to ensure that one is on the path of earning Allah Ta‘ala’s pleasure, and not incurring His displeasure, one should always first seek Islamic guidance from authentic and experienced ‘Ulama who will guide one in light of the Quraan and sunnah. Doing “one’s own thing” without taking Islamic guidance could lead to major problems – in this world and especially on the Day of Judgement.

Ten Special Days


Tuesday, 06 August 2019 09:56

It is related from Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “No days are as weighty with Allah Ta‘ala and so liked by Him  for good deeds than the first ten days of Zul Hijjah. Therefore in these days excessively read tasbeeh (subahanallah), tahleel (la ilaaha illlallah), tahmeed (alhamdulillah) and takbeer (Allahu akbar). (Majma‘uz Zawaaid #5990)
