If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep … you are richer than 75% of this world.

If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace … you are among the top 8% of the world’s wealthy.

If you woke this morning with more health than illness ... you are more blessed than the million who will not survive this week.

Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) is reported to have said: “A person is closest to Allah Ta’ala while he is in sajda.” In the state of sajda he has placed his forehead onto the ground and lowered himself to the utmost. Thus when he humbles himself in this manner, he becomes closest to Allah Ta’ala.

The word “super” conveys the meaning of something that is above others — something that is superior in some form and dominates everything. Thus the word superpower implies some “power” that is above all powers. It tacitly implies a power that is invincible. In reality, and in its absolute sense, there is only ONE superpower: Allah Ta’ala. We are reminded numerous times daily in the Azaan about this reality when we hear the repeated declaration of Allahu Akbar  (Allah is the Greatest)!

Due to Taraweeh Salaah being lengthy, after a short while the children become playful and disturb the entire congregation. Since the children form their own row right at the back, it is difficult to control them.What can be done to prevent the disturbance.

Looking Back to Move Ahead

If one is driving a car, it is extremely dangerous to look back while driving ahead. The same is true for many day to day things. However, it is different for a Mu’min (Believer) who wishes to safely walk the path of life and reach his goal and object — the eternal pleasure of Allah Ta’ala.

He must constantly keep looking back. He must look back fourteen centuries to the life of Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) and the Sahaaba (R.A.). Looking back to the glorious era will not only light up the path ahead for him so that he may walk with ease, it will also give him great courage to confront whatever obstacles come in his way and will also console him upon the trials that he may have to face.
