The Weapons of Fear and Force Fail Before Imaan!

Force and fear are ineffective in silencing the voices of the Muslims because Islam establishes the conviction that life and sustenance and wealth are in the hands of Allah (swt) and that the loss of either is in the exclusive control of Allah (swt), Al-Hai, Ar-Razaaq. RasulAllah ﷺ said, أَلَا لَا يَمْنَعَنَّ أَحَدَكُمْ رَهْبَةُ النَّاسِ […]

The First and Foremost!

Allah (swt) said, قُلْ إِن كَانَ ءَابَاؤُكُمْ وَأَبْنَآؤُكُمْ وَإِخْوَنُكُمْ وَأَزْوَجُكُمْ وَعَشِيرَتُكُمْ وَأَمْوَلٌ اقْتَرَفْتُمُوهَا وَتِجَـرَةٌ تَخْشَوْنَ كَسَادَهَا وَمَسَـكِنُ تَرْضَوْنَهَآ أَحَبَّ إِلَيْكُمْ مِّنَ اللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ وَجِهَادٍ فِي سَبِيلِهِ فَتَرَبَّصُواْ حَتَّى يَأْتِىَ اللَّهُ بِأَمْرِهِ وَاللَّهُ لاَ يَهْدِى الْقَوْمَ الْفَـسِقِينَ “Say: If your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your spouses, your kindred, the wealth that you have gained, the […]

How the Brave Shine During Adversity!

Bravery is one of the noblest characteristics for the Muslim to acquire. Anas narrated regarding RasulAllah ﷺ:   كَانَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم أَحْسَنَ النَّاسِ وَأَجْوَدَ النَّاسِ وَأَشْجَعَ النَّاسِ، وَلَقَدْ فَزِعَ أَهْلُ الْمَدِينَةِ ذَاتَ لَيْلَةٍ فَانْطَلَقَ النَّاسُ قِبَلَ الصَّوْتِ، فَاسْتَقْبَلَهُمُ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَدْ سَبَقَ النَّاسَ إِلَى الصَّوْتِ وَهْوَ يَقُولُ ‏«لَنْ تُرَاعُوا، […]

Let not Striving for Wealth become a Source of Anguish!

The desire for wealth of a Muslim must never supersede the striving in good deeds at any time, let alone at a time when his good deeds can turn the tide for his beloved Ummah. Allah (swt) said, الْمَالُ وَالْبَنُونَ زِينَةُ الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا وَالْبَاقِيَاتُ الصَّالِحَاتُ خَيْرٌ عِندَ رَبِّكَ ثَوَابًا وَخَيْرٌ أَمَلًا “Wealth and children are […]

Q&A: The Jurist’s Opinions on Making up the Fasts of Ramadan

Question:                                                                Assalam Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakatuh, Our Sheikh, I would like to know the rule of Allah on this matter so that my heart becomes at ease. I was in Jahiliyyah and I stopped fasting Ramadan deliberately without excuse. Then, Alhamdulilah, Allah sent His mercy on me so that I repent to Him. How […]

How Many More Ramadans will We Have to Witness the Slaughter of our Ummah Across the World?

The Muslims of Gaza welcomed Ramadan under a barrage of missiles and airstrikes by the murderous ‘Zionist’ entity. A month that should be a time of celebration, is yet again a time of grief and mourning for families in this besieged land. In a 3-day period, which included the beginning of Ramadan, the brutal Jewish […]

Fasting is the Shield of the Believer and Khilafah is the Shield of the Ummah!

Fasting was likened by RasulAllah ﷺ to a shield protecting each of us individually from the Fire of Jahannam. RasulAllah ﷺ said, الصِّيَامُ جُنَّةٌ مِنَ النَّارِ كَجُنَّةِ أَحَدِكُمْ مِنَ الْقِتَالِ “Fasting is a shield against the Fire just like the shield of anyone of you against fighting.” [Ibn Maajah]. So, this Ramadhan, we establish the […]

From Fasting to Governance, from Morals to Jihad, Islam is for Implementation!

We ask Allah (swt) that he accepts the fasting and qiyyam of the Muslims and that Allah (swt) forgives us for what we have committed of sin, as the Prophet ﷺ said in what al-Bukhari and Muslim reported that Abu Hurayra (ra) narrated, «مَنْ صَامَ رَمَضَانَ، إِيمَانًا وَاحْتِسَابًا، غُفِرَ لَهُ مَا تَقَدَّمَ مِنْ ذَنْبِهِ» “RasulAllah […]

This Ramadan, Let us Strive for Ruling by All that Allah (swt) Has Revealed!

Allah (swt) said, شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ الَّذِي أُنْزِلَ فِيهِ الْقُرْآنُ هُدًى لِلنَّاسِ وَبَيِّنَاتٍ مِنَ الْهُدَى وَالْفُرْقَانِ “The month of Ramadan is the one in which the Qur’ān was revealed as Guidance for mankind, and as clear signs that show the right way and the Furqan.” [Surah Al-Baqarah 2:185]

Announcement of the Result of the Sighting of the New Moon of the Blessed Month of Ramadhan for the year 1440 Hijri

شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ الَّذِيَ أُنزِلَ فِيهِ الْقُرْآنُ هُدًى لِّلنَّاسِ وَبَيِّنَاتٍ مِّنَ الْهُدَى وَالْفُرْقَانِ فَمَن شَهِدَ مِنكُمُ الشَّهْرَ فَلْيَصُمْهُ وَمَن كَانَ مَرِيضاً أَوْ عَلَى سَفَرٍ فَعِدَّةٌ مِّنْ أَيَّامٍ أُخَرَ يُرِيدُ اللّهُ بِكُمُ الْيُسْرَ وَلاَ يُرِيدُ بِكُمُ الْعُسْرَ وَلِتُكْمِلُواْ الْعِدَّةَ وَلِتُكَبِّرُواْ اللّهَ عَلَى مَا هَدَاكُمْ وَلَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ “The month of Ramadhan [is that] in which was revealed the […]

The Ummah is One and the Sighting of the Crescent Moon of Blessed Ramadhan is One for the Entire Ummah

RasulAllah ﷺ said, «صوموا لرؤيته وأفطروا لرؤيته، فإن غُبِّيَ عليكم فأكملوا عدّة شعبان ثلاثين» “Fast upon the sighted crescent moon sighting and break the fast upon its sighting” (al-Bukhari). RasulAllah ﷺ commanded Muslims collectively, altogether, to begin the obliged Fasting of Ramadhan, upon the sighting of the crescent moon.
