Islam and Spiritualism

Dua is the essence of worship. It therefore follows that Dua is the noblest and greatest form of worship. It emerges from the inner depths of the heart, an impelling yearning and a silent yell, seeking Allah’s good pleasure. Dua is complete and full submission to the Creator…

 

Many people only focus on the fear of God, when we should balance fear with hope in God’s mercy and goodness. God encourages us to think positively about Him….

 

Many believers, however, still try to find proofs of God’s existence and use these proofs to convince nonbelievers. Many, particularly in the West, have misconceptions about how Muslims view God....

 

It is important to note that not only will we be judged on the basis of whether we fulfilled our duties towards God, but also whether we fulfilled our duties towards our fellow men, or Haqooqul-Ibaad as they are called....

 

Among all the nine days of fasting, the ninth day holds prime importance and all the bounties and rewards are double for fasting on this particular day. It is also to show solidarity with the pilgrims and to prepare for the upcoming festivities of Eid ul Azha....

 

The Muslim must understand the value of his life, increase his worship of Allah and persist in doing good deeds until the moment of death...

 

Sūrah al-Tahrīm, ‘The Prohibition’, is a Medinan Sūrah comprised of 12 verses, with an underlying theme of Tarbiya Al-Awlād: family relationships and how to nurture them. Sūrah al-Talāq and Sūrah al-Tahrīm, which appear side by side in the Qur’ān, both start with the words “Yā Ayuha Al-Nabi” (O Prophet), directly addressing the Prophet (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam) and discuss how family can become a trial for us for two opposite reasons....

 

Allāh (Subhanahu wa Taalā), through His Great Majesty, created mankind knowing they would commit sins. Does this mean we were doomed from the onset? Or, is it possible to have hope in al-Raḥmān? Or, even more miraculously, can a sinner be honoured through an act which is carried out after a person falls into sin?...

 

The aspect of divine help, at Badr has been beautifully summed by Martin Lings in his biography of the prophet, “the presence of the angels was felt by all, as a strength by the faithful and as a terror by the infidels, but that presence was visible or audible to few, and in varying degrees....

 

They also had the privilege of working so closely to the Prophet and observing him in his exemplary conduct, getting groomed by him that it was but natural to assume a disposition which could be close to perfection....

The concept of family in Islam was generated from the union of the very first human beings on this Earth, sent forth by the command of Allah – Adam and Eve. This event marked the beginning of the foundations of a family unit in Islam. In today’s world there seems to be an obvious pattern of anarchy, chaos and a discernable deterioration in the familial fabric....

 

The whole of life is as music and in order to study life we must study it as music. It is not only study; it is also practice which makes man perfect. If someone tells me that a certain person is miserable or wretched or distressed, my answer will be that he is out of tune....

 

In Haqooqul Ibad, every relation enjoys a certain status wherein it is characterized by certain obligations and duties towards each other, which if reneged upon elicits Allah’s displeasure. The social sphere of our daily lives consists of our family, ties of kinship and blood relations and then neighbours....

Under the gentle guidance of the Sustainer who is closer to me than the beating of my heart, I travelled through time to wounded parts of myself and allowed this body to experience the tragedy of unexpressed pain and emotion...

 

Obedience towards parents has been in very clear terms made subservient, to the cause of worshipping none, but the True One Allah. Abraham, who even Allah the most merciful, refers to as a kind hearted man, was admonished, when he supplicated for his father Azar,...

 

One of the most beautiful realities of good deeds is that they give birth to more good deeds, just as sins give birth to more of their likes. Hence, the doer of good is rewarded by Allāh (subḥānahu wa taʿālā) with another opportunity of worship to open up before him. He pounces at it with enthusiasm, so He opens yet another door of worship, until his entire life becomes an alternation from one form of worship to another. If you are experiencing this, then you are enjoying another hopeful sign of Allāh (subḥānahu wa taʿālā)’s acceptance....

Fear has many facets and it manifests itself in various formats, at various stages of man’s growth and maturity. A child ordinarily is fearsome of darkness; an adult might fear the unknown. To attain spiritual maturity it is necessary to overcome fear of such nature. However, a true believer is devoid of fear....

 

Brotherhood shuns turmoil, turbulence, strife and dissension. The religion of Islam knows no nationalism or racialism, it has no geographic delimitations, and it co-extends with Faith. Islam creates a spiritual nationality which blends together people of every nation and every race...

 The Holy Quran is replete with verses exhorting mankind to exercise patience in suffering...

 

Why can’t we thank Allah for allowing us to see what a beautiful morning he made and how pretty does the sunshine look when....

 

Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) underwent tests of Allah for forty years before Allah chose him for disseminating His illuminating Message to a people living in a world of darkness. At the beginning, the infidels treated the Prophet (Pbuh) in a most brutal manner, annoying and tormenting him in every way.....

 

‘Good’ manifests only positive attributes. The connotation, here is that any object that is of say no useful value, when given in charity, is really no charity. Charity, that is good, can be a worthy advice, a useful knowledge, a kind word; it could be money or property....

 

Mysticism seems to me to be the opposite of dreamy; it’s the pursuit of the Real. We might define the mystic as someone who senses that God is not some external authority figure separate from His/Her creation, but a Reality living within His/Her creation....

 

Salah, must exhibit our fear of Allah, in a calm manner... It should be conducted with serenity, tranquility, dignity and humility. Our hearts must tremble with the thought that we are standing before Lord, in humility, devotion and submission….

 

The Holy Prophet (PBUH) is quoted on pride; “The one who possesses half of mustard seed of Kibr in his heart shall not be granted admission to Jannah; and the one who possesses half of a mustard seed of Imân shall not enter the (Eternal) Fire.” ...
