Why Do People Live in Despair?
Maulana Wahiduddin Khan for New Age Islam
Why Do People Live in Despair?
Maulana Wahiduddin Khan for New Age Islam

The Quran gives us such an important message, although few people are aware of it. I’ve acted on this advice myself. Many years ago, when I was young, I didn’t know English. One day, a friend of mine (who used to teach the Quran in a madrasa) saw me holding an English newspaper....

 
Reflections on Dawah
Maulana Wahiduddin Khan for New Age Islam
Reflections on Dawah
Maulana Wahiduddin Khan for New Age Islam

Dawah work is the only teaching of Islam which tells you that you need to reach out to and build contacts with non-Muslims. It means interaction with people of other faiths. It means dialogue with others. But Muslims have lost the Dawah spirit....

The Importance of Modesty in Islam
Maulana Wahiduddin Khan, New Age Islam
The Importance of Modesty in Islam
Maulana Wahiduddin Khan, New Age Islam

Submission or modesty is the culture of the universe. This is a most important teaching of Islam. We have to believe this fact, know this fact and mould ourselves according to this fact. We should know that nature is based on modesty, and that as Islam is a religion of nature....

Without Introspection, You Cannot Stand On True Faith
Maulana Wahiduddin Khan for New Age Islam
Without Introspection, You Cannot Stand On True Faith
Maulana Wahiduddin Khan for New Age Islam

The Prophet of Islam said that in the future, a group among his Ummah would consume wine. When some of his companions asked him why they would do so when God had clearly declared it to be unlawful, the Prophet said that these people would give a new name to wine and in this way declare it to be lawful….

The Islamic Way of Thinking
Maulana Wahiduddin Khan for New Age Islam
The Islamic Way of Thinking
Maulana Wahiduddin Khan for New Age Islam

Islamic thinking is positive thinking. Positive thinking is the central theme in Islam. If you read the Quran, you will find that almost all its verses are based, directly or indirectly, on positivity. For example, the very first verse of the Quran contains praise of God. Alhamdulillah, it says, which means all praise is due to God....

 
Build Your Life Yourself
Maulana Wahiduddin Khan for New Age Islam
Build Your Life Yourself
Maulana Wahiduddin Khan for New Age Islam

God-consciousness or the fear of God means that one’s thinking is not self-oriented, but, rather, God-oriented. The actions of a God-conscious person are in accordance with God’s teachings, and not in accordance with his own desires and emotions. The negative actions of others directed against people who are patient and God-conscious are rendered ineffective.....

 

More often than not, a narrative has the power to seek its own space. And sometimes there are ineffable energies throbbing to find expression, in verse, dance or music. A seeker’s journey into the realm of Tasawwuf (or Sufism, as recognized broadly) is a corrective course. Hence, to have a precise bearing in its broader context is seldom possible. However, there is a subtle line between choice and direction on the mystical path and several blessed ones perform their given roles and duties with devotion that eternalize their message for all times to come....

 

In Nepal, where Islamic Relief is currently distributing aid as a member agency of the Disasters Emergency Committee, some cultural, historical and religious buildings have been destroyed. Talking to locals about the temples, it's clear how central to community life these sites have been....

 
Humanity in the Face of Adversity
Harun Yahya
Humanity in the Face of Adversity
Harun Yahya

Many technologies that we know today were non-existent. The field of science was in its infancy. The means to forecast natural phenomena or early-warning systems were very limited or were simply not there. In the wake of a natural disaster, rehabilitation of the disaster zones would sometimes take years....

 

In the Qur’an Allah had informed us that people can ask whatever they want from Allah. His knowing Allah’s might and compassion would always enable him to be hopeful about every matter. This morality is the one Allah commanded in the Qur’an. And carrying out this command of Allah turns into a great blessing for people….

 
Ablutions and Prayers (Part I)

Ablutions and Prayers (Part I)
Dr A Q Khan

Nowadays our young generation is hardly being taught to recite the Quran, learn Namaz and the rituals of Vuzu and shower. We have witnessed how some of our intellectuals are unable to recite the easiest and shortest Shurah-e-Ikhlas....

 
Increasing the Power of Soul
Harun Yahya
Increasing the Power of Soul
Harun Yahya

Every increase in the depth of the soul will be instrumental in having a better knowledge and appreciation of Allah; loving our Lord with a greater love and passion and fearing Him with an even greater awe. It will permit the person to better understand the delights created by Allah, to see the deep signs of these more clearly and to love them even more....

 
The ‘Siddiq Spirit’
Maulana Wahiduddin Khan for New Age Islam
The ‘Siddiq Spirit’
Maulana Wahiduddin Khan for New Age Islam

The Quran tells us at the very outset that God is the Sustainer of the worlds, that He is merciful towards all mankind. God and God’s religion have nothing at all to do with hatred and violence....

 
Geometry of the Spirit

Geometry of the Spirit

All Islamic art is based on a saying of Prophet Muhammad, “God is beautiful and loves beauty.” It remains the most visible feature of Islamic civilisation....

 
No Difficulty is a Real Difficulty

No Difficulty is a Real Difficulty
Maulana Wahiduddin Khan for New Age Islam

According to a Hadith report, the Prophet said: “Whoever amongst you wakes up, secure in his home, healthy in his body, having food for the day, then it is as if he has possession of the entire world....

 

The book which was itself the imam (11:7.46:12-12:36) was removed from its position as the imam and was being examined and analysed in the light of the sayings of imams created by man. The book that should have been put on top to examine all other books with its help was instead hid under the pile of man-made books and man made statements and ideas became the belief of men but this book could not travel from the lips to the hearts. The most read book practically became the least understood book....

One can only howl in pain at the shocking and painful state of affairs at the Sufi mazaars today. Instead of God-loving and man-serving Sufi saints who used to run their khanqahs at one time by way of service to the Indian society and in an effort to please God, the petty property dealers and rapacious businessmen are ruling the roost today. ...

Preserving Immigrant Islam
Bisma Tirmizi
Preserving Immigrant Islam
Bisma Tirmizi

To counter that propaganda, many Muslim immigrants and their children are trying to get back to the root of their religion. The stereotype labelled upon Islam is that it is an inflexible religion with many restrictions. To combat that mind-set, the Muslim youth is focusing on the spirituality of Islam, calling it the ‘Islamic Revival’....

 

The simplicity of Islam, the powerful appeal and the compelling atmosphere of its mosques, the earnestness of its faithful adherents, the confidence inspiring realisation of the millions throughout the world who answer the five daily calls to prayer — these factors attracted me from the first.

 

Irrespective of time, day, week, month or year, tens of thousands of pilgrims circulate the house of God, the Kaaba, worshipping God alone, devoted in their supplications, seeking forgiveness, solitude, spiritual enrichment and appreciation of life….

 
Reflections on a New Life

Reflections on a New Life
Mustafa Akyol

This is my first child, and in the past five days that has passed since his arrival, I have had many thoughts, feelings and intuitions that are also firsts. I also decided to share them here, so he can hopefully read them many years later, and you might find them not terribly boring for now....

 
Journey after Death
Maulana Wahiduddin Khan for New Age Islam
Journey after Death
Maulana Wahiduddin Khan for New Age Islam

Every human being goes through two basic experiences—first, the experience of life; and, then, the experience of death. If you seriously reflect on these two experiences, you are bound to discover the amazing fact that our having been created and sent into this world is not as a reward for anything, but, rather, that it is an examination. In this world, we think and feel that we are free....

Further, dialogue could lead to effective solutions to human issues and problems hence creating a more coherent society. Through deep listening with compassion and positive dialogue, a stronger family unit may be built, friends may be united. Through acceptance and respect of differences, coexistence and tolerance may keep society in peace. Therefore, dialogue leads to achieving high human and ethical values…..

 
Concept of God Is Interwoven In Human Nature
Maulana Wahiduddin Khan, New Age Islam
Concept of God Is Interwoven In Human Nature
Maulana Wahiduddin Khan for New Age Islam

The purpose of Dawah, inviting people to God, is to turn this potentiality into a reality.  Dawah is not something separate from the human personality. When one is called toward God, one is actually being called toward something that is part of one’s own nature. When a person discovers this nature of his, he responds to the call and accepts it as though he were being called toward something that belonged to him.....

Qur’anic Approach to Dynamics of Change
Tauseef A Parray
Qur’anic Approach to Dynamics of Change
Tauseef A Parray

The Holy Qur’an repeatedly refers to the rise and ruin of nations as a phenomenon to be studied for guidance. It urges mankind to sojourn through the world and see themselves the fate of those who were once powerful and proud, but rebelled against Allah and were eventually destroyed for their wickedness. Various verses, like 20:128, 22:45-46, obviously contain a “great lesson” for humanity....
