There are many types of kufr, some big, some small, kufr is kufr nonetheless.

What is kufr?
Kufr in the Arabic language is to cover or conceal something.

In shari'ah terms it is “not believing in Allaah and His Messenger, whether that is accompanied by denial or it is not accompanied by denial but rather doubt, or turning away from faith out of jealousy or arrogance, or because one is following whims and desires that prevent one from following the message. So kufr is the attribute of everyone who rejects something that Allaah has commanded us to believe in, after news of that has reached him, whether he rejects it in his heart without uttering it, or he speaks those words of rejection without believing it in his heart, or he does both; or he does an action which is described in the texts as putting one beyond the pale of faith.”

See Majmoo’ al-Fataawa by Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah, 12/335; al-Ihkaam fi Usool al-Ahkaam by Ibn Hazam, 1/45.

Glorious Qur'an

وَمَكَرُواْ وَمَكَرَ اللّهُ وَاللّهُ خَيْرُ الْمَاكِرِينَ

And they (disbelievers) plotted  and Allâh plotted too. And Allâh is the Best of those who plot.

What did you call me???

Definition of Hypocrite :
1. A pretense of having a virtuous character, moral or religious beliefs or principles, etc., that one does not really possess.

2. A pretense of having some desirable or publicly approved attitude.

3. An act or instance of hypocrisy.

Lets take a second to think of the intention behond our actions....
Do we do what we do to show others? So they can look at you and say 'Oh MashAllah look at that person, look how well they did ruku' or 'how long they stood for in salaah'

Who are we doing all these good deeds for? For others to see?

Showing off is one of the major sins - its is SHIRK! 

There are 3 signs of showing off (riyaa) are:
1) Love of praise
2) Fear of criticism
3) Greed of people's possessions

Clear your intention before you start any action, make sure you do it for the sake of Allah the almighty.

Remember this form of shirk is more hidden than a black ant crawling on a dark stone in a moonless night!

O Allah! We seek refuge in You from associating partners with you while we are aware of it and we seek forgiveness from You for that which we are unaware of

How much Khushu do we have in our salaah?
The sahaaba Urwa bin Al-Zubeir had some illness in his leg and he was told by the doctors of the time that that had to amputate it in order to stop the illness from spreading.

He was offered medication in order to lessen the pain, he asked them if it will make him drowsy or the such, and he was told the medication was a form of alcohol, so Urwa refused to take it. 
Rather he told them to amputate his leg when he started his salaah.

He started his salaah and the doctors cut off his leg, he prayed like it was just another prayer…
Subhanallah, he had his leg cut off, let me repeat, his leg was cut off and he had nothing to numb the pain expect salaah.  
SO much concentration that he didnt feel the pain
Yet here if panic when we see a spider on the prayer mat…

Oh Allah increase our khushu in our salaah, make us of the muttaqoon. Ameen

Its the month of Mercy

Ramadhaan is the month of mercy!!

All the big shayateen are locked away,
The gates of Jannah are open and the gates of An-Naar are closed,
It is when Hasanaat (rewards) are multiplied
It is a month whose beginning is mercy, its middle is forgiveness and its end is redemption from the Fire.

“And whoever does evil or wrongs himself but afterwards seeks Allaah’s forgiveness, he will find Allaah Oft‑Forgiving, Most Merciful”
[al-Nisa’ 4:110]

Dont waste this precious month, you may not be here for the next Ramadhaan!

Glorious Qur'an

“ O you who believe! Observing As-Sawm (the fasting) is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may become Al-Muttaqoon (pious)
[al-Baqarah 2:183]

Do not grieve...

The Prophet, may peace and belssings be upon him said:

If this world were worth the wing of a mosquito to Allah, He would not have given the disbelievers  (even) a drink of water

SubhanAllah!! Look at how we go crazy about this world, wanting the latest shoes or having the latest gadgets, and for what??
Grieve not over this world but for what you might lose out on the hereafter!!

Abu Hurayrah said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: 

“There are two types of the people of Hell whom I have not seen: a people with whips like the tails of cattle, with which they beat the people, and women who are clothed but naked, walking with an enticing gait and with their heads looking like the humps of camels, leaning to one side. They will not enter Paradise and will not even smell its fragrance, although its fragrance can be detected from such and such a distance.”

(Narrated by Muslim, 2128)

Hand of Fatima

The hand of Fatima also known as Khamsa (خمسة) is Arabic is apparently a ‘favourite Muslim talisman’ according to the wonderful Wikipedia.  It is a talisman that is found in jewellery such as charm bracelets or hung on walls to protect oneself form evil eye. 

The talisman is palm shaped, usually has an eye in the middle of and is almost always blue in colour. 

Talismans and charms are haram in Islam and we as Muslims should all know this. It is haram to believe that a talisman will protect you or that a rabbit foot will bring you good luck or that if you break a mirror you will get 7 years bad luck or that a four leaf clover will bring good luck or the horse shoe or the knocking on wood will prevent something bad form happening…….

How is that even possible?? How on earth can a rabbits foot give good luck, it’s a rabbits foot for crying out loud, the foot of a dead rabbit. It just doesn’t make sense. And how does the hand of Fatima protect you from evil eye? How?

Watch yourselves of these things, they may seem small and completely insignificant to ones deen but believing in talismans is shirk.

And shirk is the biggest sin and the only sin that Allah doesn’t forgive.

Girlies watchout when you are buying jewellery, these days the charm bracelet is a popular piece of jewellery, sometimes the hand of Fatima is on t-shirts and clothes but in a subtle design
Save yourselves from any form of shirk.

May Allah protect us all form the evils of the shayateen and may he guide us and keep us on the straight path.


  قُلْ هُوَاللَّهُ أَحَدٌ

sunny sunny summer....


Alhamdullilah the summer is finally here, 
Beautiful blue skies
Long sunny days
Gorgous scented flowers
Tweeting birds
Its simply amazing how we have all the 4 seasons

As wonderful as the summer is, sometimes it gets a bit difficult in selecting comfortable clothing
You feel like wearing short sleeved tops
clothes made of sheer materials
because its hot

Well sisters, this is our Jihad!
Shaytaan will make it very difficult for us in the summer
The hijaab will feel like its too thick
like its suffocating you
like you're going to boil through it

Make the most of it,
"Verily with suffering comes ease"
Dont let the Shayateen win
Strenghthen your imaan
Verily the heat of theNaar will be much greater than that of the earth

Watch what you wear

Remember Allah is the All seer All hearer

May Allah make is easy on all the believing Muslim men and women,
May He give us patience and keep us on the straight path

Glorious Qur'an

أَيَحْسَبُ الْإِنسَانُ أَلَّن نَجْمَعَ عِظَامَهُ

Does man (a disbeliever) think that We shall not assemble his bones?

On the day

Many things will happen on The Last Day, a lot of which we are totally unaware. Some of it is 'Ilm ul ghayb, knowledge of the unseen, knowledge only Allah the Almighty knows. Some we dont know because we dont care to know.

There is so much to learn out there but we are all too lazy to read up and know about the unstoppable chain of events that will take place as yamul qiyaamah approaches or the events that will take place on the day itself.

For example: the hurricanes in Haiti, raging floods in Pakistan, the mudslides in Brazil, the floods in Australia, the tremors in New Zealand, the tsunami and earthquake in Japan.

Are all those not signs? are they not signs of the Day of Judgment?

Some of the minor signs have become increasingly common in todays society that is is just the norm to do those things.
 For example: 
  • drinking alcohol
  • listening to music
  • commiting zina (adultry)
  • widespread riba (usery, interest)
  • competetions in constructing the tallest buildings
  • widespread killings
  • earthquakes
  • increased number of natural disasters, such as landslides
  • fashions that clothe women, but they still look naked i.e. tight fitted and see through clothing
  • increased number of females
These are just a FEW of the signs of the hour, now think, look around you, are these things not happning?
Why wait till the sun rises from the west or till the words form the Quran are erased??

"… The day that some of the Signs of your Lord do come, no good will it do to a person to believe then, if he believed not before, nor earned good (by performing deeds of righteousness) through his faith…" [al-An'aam 6:158]

Why wait till there is no time left??

The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "The Hour will not begin until the sun rises from the West, and when it rises and the people see it, they will all believe, but that will be when it will do a person no good to believe, if he believed not before, nor earned good (by performing deeds of righteousness) through his faith." (Reported by al-Bukhaari, 11/352, and Muslim, 2/194)

Don't waste time for every second that passes

5 things...

Assalamualaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu wa maghfirah

There are 5 major things the Companions were upon:
1) Taking care of the Jama'ah/ community
2) Following the sunnah
3) Bringing light to the Masjid
4) Reciting Qur'an
5) Jihaad fee sabillilah

Thats all there is to it

Lets strive to be just like the closest companions of the Prophet may peace be upon him

May Allah give us the shafa'ah and keep us on the straight path and may he bless us and our families in our day to day lives

Valentines Day

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Valentines day is what the Kuffars do,
Shaytan is the third person between the intimate two,
So remember oh Muslims its HARAAM for you

"And remind, for indeed the remider benefits the believer"
Quran 51:55

Sunday, 13 February 2011


1 Christian celebrated Eid Ul Fitr with love and devotion
1 Hindu celebrated Eid Ul Adha and he sacrificed a a goat for the pleasure of Allah,
1 Jew fasted in the month of Ramadhan,

Have you ever heard such a thing? 


So whats this then? 
Muslims celebrated 
"Valentines Day"
Muslims celebrated 
"April Fools Day"
Muslims celebrated 
Muslims celebrated 
"Guy Fawlks Night"
Muslims celebrated 
Muslims celebrated 
"New Years Eve"

And we call ourselves muslims? 
The Prophet never celebrated un islamic celebration,
he never imitated the kuffar,

Are we true believers of the Prophet (may peace be upon him)??

Think about it.

Happy Birthday To You, Happy Birhtd....

So its time for Miladun Nabi!

Brilliant lets all wear pretty clothes and go to the Masjid to celebrate the Prophets birthday!!

Doesnt that sound at all contradictory to Muslim belief of celebrating birthdays? 


Hasn't anyone of those who celebrated Miladun Nabi never stopped to think about that? 

How can you celebrate the Prophets birthday if it is not allowed in Islam to celebrate birthdays?

How can you celebrated the Prophets birthday if there is no known date for it?
How can you celebrate the Prophets birthday if He never did?

How can you celebrate the Prophets birthday if his Companions never did,
when the Prophet was alive or after his death?


The Messenger of Allah 
(may peace and blessings be upon him) said:
“Whoever innovates
something in this matter of ours (Islam) that is not part of it, will
have it rejected.” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari and Muslim). 

Celebrating the Prophets birthday is an innovation
Stay away form innovation

Lets make Du'a that Allah protects us from innovations and keeps us on the right path

A non-muslim man was watching a live broadcast of Isha prayers form Makkah during Ramadhan with a sheikh.

He noticed the huge amount of people almost 3 milion, walking about around the Ka'ba and running between Safa and Marwa and offereing prayers and making dua....

The sheikh asked the man "How long do you think they'll take to organize themselves in rows and start the Salaat? "

The man replied, "At least 2-3 hours"

The sheikh then said, "But the masjid (HARAM) of Ka'aba is 4 floors."

The man replied, "OH, this's will make it about 12 hours then."

The sheikh said,  "Put in your mind that they are from countries all over the world with different languages."

The Americans man said, "Then it is impossible to organise them by any means!!!"

The second call for prayer was announced and the Imam said - Istawoo - arrange yourselves

 Within seconds the crowd began moving, the whole scene changed, the 3 million people started arranging themselves in perfect well organised rows around the Ka'ba - in literally NO TIME.

The non muslim man watching the turned to the Sheikh and gave the shahada

أشهد أن لا إله إلا الله و أشهد أن محمد رسول الله

Traits of a Hypocrite

Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr:
The Prophet said, “Whoever has (the following) four characters will be a hypocrite, and whoever has one of the following four characteristics will have one characteristic of hypocrisy until he gives it up. These are: (1 ) Whenever he talks, he tells a lie; (2) whenever he makes a promise, he breaks it; (3) whenever he makes a covenant he proves treacherous; (4) and whenever he quarrels, he behaves impudently in an evil insulting manner.” 

(See Hadith No. 33 Vol. 1)
{Volume 3, Book 43, Number 639: Sahih Bukhari}

Beautiful Hadith

Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying:

If anyone gives as Sadaqa the equivalent of a date from that (earning) earned honestly, for Allah accepts that which is lawful, the Lord would accept it with His Right Hand, and even if it is a date, it would foster in the Hand of the lord, as one of you fosters his colt, till it becomes bigger than a mountain.

{Book 005, Chapter 18, Number 2211 : Sahih Muslim}

Q and A

"Is it permissible for me to say to non-Muslims “And the same to you” when they wish me a Happy New Year or say Best Wishes?"


It is not permissible to greet or congratulate the kuffaar on the occasion of Christmas, New Year or any of their other holidays, and it is not permissible to respond to them when they greet us on those occasions, because they are not festivals that are prescribed in our religion, and returning their greeting is an affirmation and approval of them. The Muslim should be proud of his religion and its rulings, and he should be keen to call others and convey to them the religion of Allaah, may He be glorified and exalted. 

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) was asked about the ruling on greeting the kuffaar on the occasion of Christmas and how we should respond when they greet us on this occasion. Is it permissible to go to the parties that they hold on this occasion? 
Is a person sinning if he does any of the things mentioned without intending to, and he only does it to be nice, or because of or shyness or embarrassment or other reasons? Is it permissible to imitate them in that? 
He replied: 
Greeting the kuffaar on the occasion of Christmas or any of their other religious holidays is haraam according to scholarly consensus, as was stated by Ibn al-Qayyim in his book Ahkaam Ahl al-Dhimmah, where he says: 
"Congratulating the kuffaar on the rituals that belong only to them is haraam by consensus, as is congratulating them on their festivals and fasts by saying ‘A happy festival to you’ or ‘May you enjoy your festival,’ and so on. If the one who says this has been saved from kufr, it is still forbidden. It is like congratulating someone for prostrating to the cross, or even worse than that. It is as great a sin as congratulating someone for drinking wine, or murdering someone, or having illicit sexual relations, and so on. Many of those who have no respect for their religion fall into this error; they do not realize the offensiveness of their actions. Whoever congratulates a person for his disobedience or bid’ah or kufr exposes himself to the wrath and anger of Allaah." End quote. 

Congratulating the kuffaar on their religious festivals is haraam to the extent described by Ibn al-Qayyim because it implies that one accepts or approves of their rituals of kufr, even if one would not accept those things for oneself. But the Muslim should not accept the rituals of kufr or congratulate anyone else for them, because Allaah does not accept any of that at all, as He says (interpretation of the meaning): 

"If you disbelieve, then verily, Allaah is not in need of you, He likes not disbelief for His slaves. And if you are grateful (by being believers), He is pleased therewith for you.  .
[al-Zumar 39:7]

". . .
 This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islaam as your religion . .
[al-Maa’idah 5:3] 

So congratulating them is forbidden, whether they are one’s colleagues at work or otherwise.
If they greet us on the occasion of their festivals, we should not respond, because these are not our festivals, and because they are not festivals which are acceptable to Allaah. These festivals are innovations in their religions, and even those which may have been prescribed formerly have been abrogated by the religion of Islaam, with which Allaah sent Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) to the whole of mankind. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): 

"Whoever seeks a religion other than Islaam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers."
[Aal ‘Imraan 3:85]

It is haraam for a Muslim to accept invitations on such occasions, because this is worse than congratulating them as it implies taking part in their celebrations.

Similarly, Muslims are forbidden to imitate the kuffaar by having parties on such occasions, or exchanging gifts, or giving out sweets or food, or taking time off work, etc., because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: 

"Whoever imitates a people is one of them." 

Shaykh al-Islaam Ibn Taymiyah said in his book Iqtidaa’ al-Siraat al-Mustaqeem Mukhaalifat Ashaab al-Jaheem: "Imitating them in some of their festivals implies that one is pleased with their false beliefs and practices, and gives them the hope that they may have the opportunity to humiliate and mislead the weak
End quote from Majmoo’ Fataawa al-Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen, 3/44. 
And Allaah knows best.

New Year

So its 2011!

SubhanAllah, one whole year has come and gone and what have we achived?

How many of us became better muslims?

How many of us bacem Hafidhul Qur'an?

How many of helped a non-believer see the light of Islam?

How many of us sacrificed for Allah?

Many of us get dragged into the celebration of the New Year, little do we realise that this tiny celebration can turn into a form of disbelief!

How is it disbeleif? Its just wishing someone New Year!!
We forget that its not our New Year, its theirs - our new year came and went and we didnt even bother acknowledging it.

I mean Allah clearly tell us in the Quran:
"This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islaam as your religion . ."
 (Maa'idah 5,3)

This is suggesting that these celebrations are forbidden in Islam.
May Allah guide us and keep us on the Straight path and keep us away from all these Fitnah.
