Guidance and Misguidance

Linguistically Huda means rashaad (integrity of conduct) and dalaalah (showing the way). It is said, he guided him to the deen, i.e. led him to guidance; I showed him the way and the home meaning I informed. Dhalaal is the opposite of rashaad.

Hidaayah, according to the Shar’a, is to be guided to Islam and to believe in it. And dhalaal, according to the Shar’a is deviation from Islam.

Islam and Spirituality

The origin of the use of the word ‘spirit’ is found in the discussions that took place between people who believe in the existence of God, frequently using words such as ‘spirit’ and ‘spirituality’ to articulate the effect of a creator.

One of the most misunderstood areas of Islam amongst the Ummah is this very topic of spirituality with the Muslim Ummah today holding a wide range of varying views on what spirituality is and how it is to be interpreted.

It must however be asked as to whether the issue of spirituality in Islam is something that has always existed. Is the discussion of spirituality part of Islam or a separate universal topic?

Scientists as well as those who are smitten by the discoveries in the scientific world have over the years developed a number of theories which for them proves there is no such thing as a creator. These theories or arguments can be categorized as follows:

 

The Victory of Allah (swt) is Near

The 60th anniversary of the Israeli occupation of Palestine is a grim reminder of the Ummah’s current state of affairs. Although the Ummah is experiencing trials, we must not give into despair and lose hope. We must not capitulate to the demands of the occupiers, but rather continue to remain steadfast. We must exert our utmost effort to resume the Islamic way of life through the re-establishment of Khilafah and rely on Allah (swt) to grant victory to this Ummah.
