What has Islam taught us about love for Allah and His Messenger: قُلْ إِن كُنتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ اللَّهَ فَاتَّبِعُونِي يُحْبِبْكُمُ اللَّهُ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ وَاللَّهُ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ “Say, [O Muhammad], “If you should love Allah, then follow me, [so] Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.” [3:31] The […]
Gaining the Knowledge of the daily Shariah rules necessary for life is an individual obligation (fard Ain) on every Muslim. This is because the Muslim is commanded to carry out his actions according to the Shariah rules, not according to interest and desire. وَمَا كَانَ لِمُؤْمِنٍ وَلَا مُؤْمِنَةٍ إِذَا قَضَى اللَّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ أَمْراً أَن يَكُونَ […]

Allah (swt) has willed that we be of the late group of believers who believed in the Messenger of Allah ﷺ without seeing him. We ask Him (swt) to make us of those whom he ﷺ described:«إِيمَانُ أَحَدِهِمْ بِخَمْسِينَ» “The Eman of one of them is equal to fifty” or forty as was reported.

The separation of politics from Deen was carried out by the Western colonizers after the destruction of the Khilafah (Caliphate) and ruling of the Islamic countries, and the imposition of its control over the region.

Since the destruction of the Khilafah (Caliphate) on 28 Rajab 1342 Hijri, corresponding to 3 March 1924 CE, Muslims have suffered great oppression at the hands of the current rulers. These rulers pay lip service to Islam, whilst ruling by man-made laws, even though Allah (swt) said, وَمَنْ لَمْ يَحْكُمْ بِمَا أَنزَلَ اللَّهُ فَأُوْلَئِكَ هُمْ […]

Whenever reviewing books of Islamic history, one finds narrations about heroes of this great Ummah that affirm the saying of RasulAllah ﷺ, «مَثَلُ أُمَّتِي مَثَلُ الْمَطَرِ لَا يُدْرَى أَوَّلُهُ خَيْرٌ أَوْ آخِرُهُ» “My Ummah is like a rain, it is not known if the first of it is good or last of it” (Tirmithi).
