Salaat with Jama'ah

Hazrath Anas bin Malik (R.A.) narrates that he heard the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) saying: “A person who in all sincerity is constant in his salaah with jama’ah for forty days, without missing the first takbeer, receives two awards: one for deliverance from Hell and the other for freedom from nifaaq.”

The Muslim Businessman


Sunday, 04 November 2007 20:16

Hazrath Muaz bin Jabal (R.A) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: “The purest of income is the earnings of traders who:

1. When they speak, they do not lie
2. When something is placed in trust with them, they do not misappropriate the trust
3. When they promise, they do not renege on their promise
4. When they purchase something, they do not find fault with the merchandise (i.e. they do not try to reduce the price by exaggerating its defects)
5. When they sell, they do not praise the article (i.e. they do not exaggerate its good qualities in order to fetch a better price)
6. When they are indebted, they do not delay payment
7. When they are owed money, they are not harsh in asking for payment.


R36 000.00 an Hour


Sunday, 04 November 2007 20:15

Can you imagine earning R36 000.00 an hour? If you were given such a job, how many hours a day would you work? Most people would opt for at least a few hours daily, if not the entire day. Why would anyone so eagerly grab such a job? Simply because we all understand the reality of rands and cents. The one who gets the job will have big dreams of what he would do with the money he will earn. A palatial home, top-of-the-range luxury vehicle, all the appliances and furniture he dreamt of and a thousand other items will flood his mind. Yet, even if he acquires all these items, it is not necessary that he will gain happiness and peace. True happiness and peace is only in Jannah. But Jannah also has to be earned by means of the currency of the Hereafter.

Embrace Islam Totally


Sunday, 04 November 2007 20:14

It is a well known fact that daily many people from all walks of life embrace Islam. Many come into Deen after having studied Islam and having understood the truth. However numerous people walk away from their previous faith and proclaim the Shahadah after having being attracted by the exemplary business dealings or social conduct of some Muslims. May Allah Ta’ala increase the likes of such people who are true ambassadors of Deen.

Purpose of Ramadhaan


Sunday, 04 November 2007 20:01

Ramadhaan is the month to boost our  spiritual batteries of Imaan to a peak. Hence if in this very month we  shirk in the fulfillment of our ibaadah or  fail to refrain from all sin, we would be defeating the main purpose of this mubarak month — the inculcating of Taqwa (fear of Allah) in our lives.

Therefore it is important that we mentally prepare ourselves for Ramadhaan even before it comes. For this we should immediately commence a thorough reading of the “Virtues of Ramadhaan” by Shaikhul Hadith Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya Saheb (R.A.). Find a suitable time and read it to the entire family. Then perhaps the true spirit of Ramadhaan will be kindled in the entire family. Perhaps it will then be a Ramadhaan that will be a turning point in our lives. After  Ramadhaan has gone, the punctuality upon salaah, recitation of Qur’an, etc., and most importantly the refraining from sin will still be a part of our lives.
  May Allah Ta’ala enable us to earn His love and assist us in earning the maximum benefit in this Mubarak month. Aameen.
