Reflect and Ponder (19)

Nabi Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said, "Leave that which puts you in doubt and turn to towards that which doesn't put you in doubt."

SubhanAllah, these are the beautiful words of the Leader of mankind. If only we could make this the rule in our lives.

Why should we sacrifice our hereafter by going into doubtful things in which there is a valid Shar'ii possibility that it may be haraam, impermissible??

Is our life in the hereafter so cheap??
Why put our eternity into jeapardy for short lived pleasure??

Please, let us deeply think and ponder over this beautiful hadith.

Wednesday, 29 August 2012


Some "illuminated" thinkers have emerged with the comical contention that Hadith is unreliable, thus it should either be completely ignored, or taylored to fit our nonsensical whims and fancies, our conveniences and desires. This Satanic movement to destroy and uproot the very foundation of Islam is not new at all. It has been existing for way more than a century.
It has only re-emerged with a modern design. Rest assured, it's the same filth being marketed with a new look to bait poor, innocent, naive Muslims.
It is terribly sad to see that "Muslims" have relegated themselves to such sunken abysses of ignorance.
To reject and brush aside the sayings and teachings of Allah's most beloved, the leader of the worlds, Muhammad Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam on the basis of such a baseless, spurious and foolish argument that Hadith is unreliable and unauthentic, is such an extreme fallacy that is sufficient to plunge one into the dark dungeons of kufr - disbelief - an exit from the fold of Islam.
The Quran and Hadith go hand in hand, each one unable to stand on it's own without the other, and this is what is Deen, and this is what it has been for the past 1400 years plus.
How do we know that the Quran is the Quran??
Who told us? Nabi Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam, who else. Isn't that Hadith? So basically, the Quran has reached us through hadith. The result?? The rejectors of Hadith are in actual fact rejectors of the Quran!!
If we choose to follow only the Quran, I ask you is there anybody who would know how to perform just 2 rak'aah of Salaah??
How can we use the Quran to decide which Hadith is right and which is not??
The categorization of Hadith has already been done more than a millenium ago.
From the Hadith, the 4 Imams, whose madhabs we have to follow, extracted laws.
All we have to do is follow those laws. Simple.
To grow a beard is compulsory according to all 4 madhabs.

May Allah give us guidance and understanding. Ameen

In any disagreement, to reach a solution and reconciliation, all parties involved must give in a little and admit their fault. For any side to think that he/she is the only one who is right, the other side is completely wrong, and that it is they who should give in, is a clear sign of pride, and in this way, agreement will never be reached.

(However, this is not so for a disagreement directly connected to the upholding of Shariah and Deen. There, Allah's word should be put on top and held on fast to without any giving in.)

The main cause of disagreement is lack of proper and clear communication, and misunderstanding and misinterpretation of words. We take everybody/s words in the worst possible meaning, and this is what plagues healthy relationships.

The intelligent one is he who speaks less and listens more. Today everybody tries to do the opposite. Don't be like a crow - don't try to make yourself get heard, and don't try to make people listen to you everywhere you go, in every gathering. If you have to speak, say only that much which is necessary, choosing your words carefully, and knowing full well who you are speaking to and who is present listening. Don't ever make out yourself to be imposing.

As a result of the immense importance attached to the outer figure by none other than our enemies, termed as the West, which is actually a misnomer, who continuously carry the worry about how the Ummah can self destruct and become incapacitated, today's Muslim women will spend hours of their precious time everyday, and thousands, in beauty salons and parlours, and on beauty products, trying there level best to create on their faces that elusive perfect look which will never come.

We have been programmed to give everything for outer beauty, and turn away from and completely ignore our inner beauty, which is the beauty that really matters.

By inner beauty, I mean beautiful qualities and akhlaaq, something which is becoming extinct today.

The reality is this, and I'm sure many of you have physically experienced this, and will attest to its truth -  :



Honestly tell me, isn't this a fact??

Today, unfortunately, Muslim women, ever eager to follow and emulate glamorous plastic-faced celebrities, have completely ignored this most important facet, and this has in turn led to problems in the family, in the community, and ultimately becomes the cause of total societal breakdown, which is exactly what "THEY" want.

Once, Nabi sallallahu alaihi wa sallam mentioned a woman who used to involve herself in a lot of nafl ibaadah, but had bad akhlaaq, to be burning in Jahannam, hell.
He mentioned another woman who hardly used to do any nafl ibaadah, but had beautiful akhlaaq, to be in Jannah.

Something to think about??

In another hadith, Nabi sallallahu alaihi wa sallam has been reported to have said that on the day of Qiyaamah, the thing which will be weightiest on the scales is good akhlaaq.

The main component of beautiful akhlaaq is proper use of the tongue. Indeed, it is the tongue which ultimately determines how the character of a person is, and it is with the misuse of the tongue that most women earn the wrath of Allah, as is mentioned in the hadith, which we will inshaAllah discuss later when we talk in detail about the tongue.

So, my dear beloved sisters, instead of emptying out your purses on countless useless creams and lotions, why don't you take me up on this??  It won't cost you a penny and I'm guaranteeing 100% success, and a total permanent facial makeover which will not only make your life in this world pleasant, as all around you will like you more, but it will ensure that you attain eternal peace in Jannah.

Not a bad deal, huh? Just try it out.

May Allah give us tawfeeq, ameen.

Never join in with the flow, rather, do what is right according to shariah. Never ever do anything to please people when it means breaking the laws of shariah in the process. Never try to "fit in" by conforming to the popular and over riding ideas and beliefs of a particular community and society. Today the Muslim Ummah has lost its identity because it has followed the famous saying, obviously originated by our enemies, "When in Rome, do as the Romans do." This ploy to destroy the Muslims has been there for many millenia (1000s of years) now, but, unfortunately, the Ummah is complacently unaware. Let us wake up!!!

The ahadith have painted a very enticing picture of the exquisite beauty of the river of Kauthar, which is Rasulullah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam's special river in Jannah.
It will be many hundreds of miles long. On its sides will be domes of hollow pearl. In another narration, tents of pearl, and palaces of pearls. In yet another narration, the sides will be made of gold.
The sand of this river will pure musk. The stones and pebbles of this river will be pearls, emerald, rubies and other precious stones.

The water of this river will be whiter than milk, sweeter than honey.
Can you imagine the beauty??!

The cups and goblets will be shining like stars and their number will be more than the stars.
The one who drinks from it will never feel thirst again.
Our beloved Rasulullah Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam will be there, giving every member of his Ummah a cup of it to drink, with his own blessed hands!!! SubhanAllah, what a time that will be! Who wouldn't want to be blessed with this bounty??

Yet, unfortunately, there will be some from this Ummah who will be DEPRIVED OF THIS BOUNTY!!

WHO?? It is narrated in a hadith that a group of people will come forward to get this drink, and Nabi Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam will be about to hand it to them, when Jibreel (AS) will come in between and push them away with his wing. Nabi Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam will say to Jibreel, "But they are from my Ummah?"
Jibreel (AS) will reply, "You do not know what they have done after you left."

One of the interpretations of this is that it refers to AHLUL BID'AH - THE PEOPLE OF INNOVATION. They are those people who brought new things into Deen, which were not there in the first three eras of Islam.
In another narration it is mentioned that when Nabi Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam will here this, he will get angry, and he himself will chase these people away using the word "Suhqan!"

"SUHQAN" in Arabic is a word used to chase away DOGS! Allah also uses this word in the Quran to refer to the people of Jahannam - hell!!


Unfortunately, today a large part of the Ummah is involved in various acts of innovation.
This is especially so in the days of Ramadhan, Eid ul Fitr, Eid ul Adha, Aashura (10th Muharram) and 15th of Shaaban.

My dear brothers and sisters, it is my heartfelt plea to all of you, we need to come away from this, otherwise we will be amongst the unfortunate ones described above.
However, it is important to know exactly what is bid'ah and what isn't, because there are some people who, out of ignorance, classify some acts as bid'ah whereas they are proven from Sunnah.
InshaAllah soon, we will discuss in detail the different acts of bid'ah which are truly bid'ah, and point out those which people say they are bid'ah but in reality they are not.
May Allah give us tawfeeq.

Hadhrat Daanyaal (AS) was one of the prophets sent to Bani Israil, who had been given the gift of dream interpretation. The Babylonian king of his time saw a very mysterious and worrying dream. All the wisemen and astrologers were perplexed and could not offer any satisfactory explanation. The king learnt of Daanyaal (AS) prowess in dreams, and sent for him. He offered him wealth and position in return for the interpretation of his dream, an offer which was promptly declined by Daanyaal (As). He told the king to keep his wealth by him, he would give him the interpretation. (If we were in his place, what would we do??)

Daanyaal (As) gave a very cryptic interpretation which itself needed deciphering. He said that there will come a reign of terror, in which the sacred house of Allah will be taken over and desecrated. This time would come after 2,300 days, and the reign would last for 45 days after which, the house of Allah would become free. What does that mean??

A certain sheikh has offered a possible explanation. He says that the reign of terror refers to Israel, and it's control of Masjidul Aqsa.  In terms of the Taurah, one day means one year. According to this, the reign of terror would start after 2300 years. According to historians, this prophecy was made 333 years before Isa (As).  2300 minus 333 will give you the year 1967, the exact year when Israel gained total control of Jerusalem. Works about perfectly doesn't it?? This rule will last for 45 years. Which brings us to 2012. So, according to this explanation, the fall of Israel will be in 2012, or it will start in 2012. Interesting huh?? However, we have to remember that this is a possibility, not something certain. It could be right and it could be wrong.

Funnily enough, at this moment, Israel is at the height of its power. It's downfall in this year is, for us, quite unimaginable, but for Allah everything is easy.

If it is going to happen this year, how do you think it's going to occur? What are the possibilities??
Please do share your views.

The following spiritual sicknesses have wreaked havoc in the Ummah, and are the ones responsible for our sunken state today -

Hubb e Bah - Inner evil self - nafs, desires
Hubb e Jah     Love for position and praise
Hubbul Maal - Love for wealth
Hubbud Dunya - Love for the world
Hubbun Nafs - Love of one self - resulting in vanity, arrogance, and pride.

At a later stage, InshaAllah, we will deal with ways on how we can combat these sicknesses.
May Allah save us from them.


Today, the Muslim Ummah has, unfortunately, become enamoured and bedazzled with the "beauty" of this temporary world.

This is in accordance with what Rasulullah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam has said - "Verily this world is sweet and green." 

Today, when we looked at those who are swimming in worldly pleasures, nay, drowning in them, we get enticed, wishing the same thing that those people had wished who saw the vast treasure of Qaroon, "If only we had what Qaroon has been given." It was none other than the people of knowledge who rebuked them and explained to them that no, what Allah has kept for you is way better.
Today, when we look at such show and shine, we should think the same. Rasulullah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam has said, "The world is a jail for the believer and paradise for the disbeliever."
This is the place where the enemies of Allah toward whom we lift our eyes up to in adoration and envy "enjoy" themselves as if it is paradise, if you can even term their enjoyment as enjoyment. After they live this world, there is nothing but misery and punishment for them, that's why they want to make the most out of this world, live in the biggest house, drive the sportiest car, eat the most sumptious of foods, regularly jump into a plane and go to the Carribean for a holiday.
For us, this world is a JAIL! Does anybody enjoy himself in jail, i ask you? Can even the thought of enjoyment come?
No, the only thought that goes through the mind of someone in jail is, "when will the time come that I will get my freedom from this nasty place."
Has this thought ever crossed our minds??
Are we treating this world as a paradise or as a jail??
My dear beloved brothers and sisters, our paradise, JANNAH is waiting for us in the hereafter! It is calling out to us saying, "Oh servant of Allah, don't get fooled by this world, I'm your real home, I am the place of pleasure where you can get your every desire. I adorn myself for you everytime you please Allah, so ask Allah to give me to you!"
But Alas, who is there to hear jannah's calls in the midst of this mad rat race to gather more and more of this world!
That is why it is so important for us to know WHAT JANNAH IS, so that we can build a longing for it, and turn our eyes away from this world.

Today, people seek long healthy lives in this short worldly period. When a Mumin will enter Jannah three announcements will be made -
1. You will remain healthy forever, disease will never come.
2. You will remain alive for ever, death will never come.
3. You will remain in such bounties which will never finish.


Today the whole world is running after attaining GOLD and SILVER.

Jannah is made with - bricks of GOLD and SILVER . Its cement is of MUSK. Its stones and gravel are PEARLS and YAQOOT. Its sand is SAFFRON.

Today, in the world, we love that we should be promoted. get a higher position in our company.
What about the grades and levels and promotions of jannah?

 In the gardens of Jannah, every tree will be the journey of 100 years. Plants will be thorn free, with leaves like elephant ears. Fruits will be hanging in thick rows and bunches.

Today, we want palatial homes with many rooms and a swimming pool.
Those who LOVE EACH OTHER FOR THE SAKE OF ALLAH will get a pillar of YAQOOT.
On this there will be 70,000 ROOMS WHICH WILL SHINE LIKE THE SUN.
Every room will have 70,000 TABLE CLOTHS, AND ON EACH TABLE CLOTH WILL BE 70,000 DIFFERENT TYPES OF FOOD, EACH BOWL TASTING DIFFERENT. A person will eat one type of food for 40 YEARS.
The stems of plants will be made of GOLD AND SILVER.
Today we spend thousands, and all our time, looking for the best designer clothes.
In jannah, a person will wear 70 DRESSES AT THE SAME TIME.
Each dress will be beautiful, weightless, delicate, each having a different colour. Through the dresses THE HEART WILL BE VISIBLE AND THE LOVE IN THE HEART WILL ALSO BE SEEN.

For every person will be 4 RIVERS - WATER, MILK, HONEY, AND PURE WINE.

Every person will have -
The height of Adam (as) - 90 feet
The youth of Isa (as) - 30-33 years.
The beauty of Yusuf (as)
The sweet voice of Dawud (as)
The tolerance of Yaqub (as)
The patience of Ayub (as)
The noble character of Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)

Today we run after scantily clad half naked women - actresses, singers and models who show their short lived beauty to all and sundry.

Such beauty which we cannot even imagine nor fathom.

So, why waste our time and energy for this useless world, when this is what we have been promised?
What is better, the short lived ephemeral pleasure of this world, or the eternal ecstacy of Jannah? You make the choice.
Isn't this worth striving for and making an effort for?
May Allah grant all of us Jannatul Firdaus, ameen.

Just think about the following sayings which I read somewhere, aren't they so true and beautiful??

"Better brain drain than brain in the drain"  Meaning that, rather use your brain, and exercise it, make it tired, before it becomes useless, because if a brain remains idle, it loses its capabilities. So, let us use this bounty of Allah, and not let it waste away.

"Unique qualities germinate from the seeds of sacrifice" Today, we want to have good qualities, but we forget that we have to pay a price for them, they don't just come like that. When a person is put into in a difficult situation, and he perseveres and sacrifices, then definitely this will give rise to beautiful qualities.

 What is the reality of knowledge? Some people have this misconception that knowledge refers to words on paper.

That is just the outer form and appearance of knowledge. It is not the reality of knowledge. First of all, we have to clear this up that when we say knowledge, "ilm", we are referring to only the knowledge of Deen, not any other type of knowledge, because all of that isn't knowledge at all, just information that keeps changing. Yesterday they told us aspirin is very good, today they tell us it's bad. You can't call that ilm. Ilm is only that which has remained unchanged for more than 1400 years, and will remain like that till Qiyamah.

Okay, so knowledge in reality is not black on white, but rather it is a noor, a celestial light, which Allah puts into the hearts of his chosen ones. Because of this noor, a person gains the full understand of Deen, wisdom, and his heart expands to allow him to understand the reality of the world around him.

This expansion of the heart is known as Sharhus Sadr, and there are 3 signs that indicate towards it - 1)  Turning away from this world full of deception.
2.) Turning towards the place of eternity, the hereafter.
3.) Preparing for death before it comes.

This is the knowledge that we have to stive for, the noor of the heart.

My ustadh once told us that when he had gone to Palestine, he was told about a Jewish woman who had been teaching one of the hardest tafseers ever written, called Jalaalain, for the past 20 years! Imagine that, and she still never became Muslim!
What does that mean? It simply proves the fact that knowledge is from Allah. For this woman, it was just words on paper, the reality never entered her. That's not what we want.

May Allah grant all of us this reality, this noor, through which we can attain eternal success, amin.


Julius Caesar has been famously reported to have made this statement, "we came, we saw, and we conquered."
The poor American and NATO forces, when they leave Afghanistan (that is if they ever leave), with their tails between their legs in the utter humiliation of defeat, will have to suffice with, "we came, we saw, we tried to conquer."

They will never publicly admit it, but defeat is written all over their 11 year campaign of spreading terrorism in the country.

The other thing they won't admit is that American and Nato soldiers are scared to the death, shivering, trembling in the field against the Taliban mujahideen. They literally dread every face off with the lions of Allah.

This might sound hilarious, but it's true, and it shows the effect that a true Muslim can have on his enemy - one of the leading newspapers in Pakistan , The News International, has named the US army in Afghanistan "Pamper Army!"  The reason?? It has been reported that numerous US soldiers, infact almost all of them, regularly soil their pants with excreta and urine, when they are in the battle field, out of fear for the Taliban!! So much fear and awe overtakes them that they cannot venture out of their heavily protected armoured personnel carriers (their vehicles) to go do their job outside, so they just do it there. So, rather than mess their pants, they have ordered huge amounts of diapers from their nearby allies, Pakistan! That way, while they are involved in fighting, they can excrete. In fact, the mere sight of the Taliban greatly fastens the process of excretion for even those who are constipated!!

This is the reality that "they" don't want you to know, because although it may be funny, it isn't for them, and they don't want the public to know just how much the American boys and girls are suffering out there.

What's more, their "die hard" allies, without whom they couldn't be in Afghanistan, the Afghanistani puppet army, is also turning against them. Many American and Nato soldiers have been lately killed by their Afghan allies. The generals of the army try in their pitiful way to downplay the whole situation saying that these are just stray cases. But, the reality is that more and more Afghan soldiers are realizing the mistake of siding up with Nato to wipe out their own Muslim brothers. How?
SubhanAllah, it's so amazing! They report that after a battle, when they walk through the battlefield, and on the ground lie the bodies of their soldiers, the American Nato soldiers, as well as the martyrs of the Taliban, then through the Qudrat of Allah, the bodies of these martyrs give of such a wonderful fragrance that they have never smelt something like it ever before. Just next to them, from the Afghan army soldiers', and Nato soldiers' bodies such a horrible stench and smell is emanating that they have to cover their noses! Seeing this, they realize the truth of the Taliban!

The mighty armies of the Roman Empire, the superpower of that time, were crushed by the small band of starving, ill - equipped Sahaba, and subsequently the Empire came crumbling down.

Today, we have America and Nato, superpowers who have all the technological power, nuclear power, and sophistacated weaponry at their disposal, yet they cannot defeat a group of mountain dwelling warriors with a paltry amount of rudimentary weapons! Why?
Allah says in the Quran, "And if among you there are twenty patient ones, you will conquer two hundred, and if you are a hundred, you will defeat a thousand kuffar. That is because they are a people lacking in intelligence"
SubhanAllah!! Doesn't that say it all??
The main thing is not equipment, but what is inside the heart. That's what Allah looks at, and according to that he sends his help.
Why are "they" so interested in a relatively small country on the other side of the world?
Because of Khilaafat! They know the unity of the Muslims is anathema for them, it will mean the end of their control, so they can't let it happen.

That is why the media won't tell you all these things! Because they are the ones who shape and control public opinion. They need to keep it in that direction, making people think that this is a national threat.
However, the reality is something else, as we can now see. If only we all could understand.

When a person compares what he knows to what he doesn't, and he realizes that what he doesn't know is exponentially and infinitely greater beyond any comparison, they he will understand that he is jaahil, and will always remain a jaahil.

Reflect and Ponder (12)

If Allah has chosen someone for the service of His Deen, in any small way it may be, then this is such a magnanimous bounty the greatness of which is unimaginable. However, a person cannot get proud and conceited over this, and look down upon others, because the result of this is that the bounty will be snatched away and given to someone else. Rather, what we have to do is continuously make shukr - show our gratitude to Allah for choosing us, and ask Him to grant us and everybody else acceptance in His court, because, at the end of the day, that is what really counts.

What goes through our minds when we see a cube of ice sitting in the plate, slowly meltin away, drop by drop?
 Or when the lights go out and we see a candle burning, the wax dripping as it gets shorter and shorter?
 Or the bar of soap on the sides of our sinks, getting tinier everyday we use it, until one day we can't use it anymore?
 If we truly observe these everyday phenomena, we will have realized that these are all examples of our lives.

Allah Ta'ala has awarded us this short temporary worldly life as a priceless opportunity to attain His pleasure for eternity. Every second that we have in our hands is like an expensive pearl in need of our utmost protection so that it can be spent in the most profitable of actions. Thus we should refrain from wasting our time, and spending it in futile actions which will be of absolutely no benefit to us, not in this world, nor in the hereafter.

 If only we could realize the gravity of the matter. Every breath we take our time gets shorter, every second that passes by, our candle gets shorter, until one day it will be all gone, and the flame of our worldly life will be snuffed out forever, never to return. May Allah enable us to spend our time correctly, ameen.

Reflect and Ponder (11)

The Deen of Allah has become orphaned today. It screams and cries from all four corners of the world, but alas, there is no one to listen to these cries. Even those who are seemingly involved in the upliftment of Deen have the love of this world embedded in their hearts, and when this is the case, what can they achieve?? "Yaa asafaa" - what a regret that we spend our short lives which we had gotten to decorate our abode of the hereafter in trying to decorate our ephemeral abode in this world.


The world is worth less than the wing of a mosquito in the eyes of Allah. The creator of the world, Allah himself curses the world, yet we spend day after day, month after month, year after year in trying to attain this witch in bridal clothing. While the world continues to run away from us, we are blindly running after it in a mad rat race, utterly oblivious to the fact that our stay here is short and temporary, like the stay of a rider taking rest under a tree, who then resumes his journey.

We blindly spend our entire lives in search of the elusive world, trying to get a grasp of it, and indulging in it to the fullest, while we don't even give a moment for preperation of the hereafter, which is eternal. Doesn't make sense does it? What's even more surprising is that we all know that our time in this world can end at any given moment, without warning, and without any advance notice, yet we turn a blind eye to this undeniable fact, a fact which no man has had the temerity to deny.

After spending our entire lives blindfolded to the truth, it is only after death that our eyes shall open to reality. Then, alas, it is too late. We were given time to realize the truth, and to traverse the straight path to success, albeit the path less travelled. We instead, chose to ignore the clear directions and instructions given to us, and preferred to go off-course and take the small side roads, assuming that we would eventually find success. Alas, it is only after our eyes close for the last time, never to see the light of this world again, do we realize that by taking the side roads and gullies, we got lost.

After death, it is too late to find our way back to the straight path, for the hereafter is a time of reckoning and not deeds, and NOW is the time to do the deeds that will keep us on the straight path, and prevent us from veering off into dark allies where Shaytan and his henchmen lurk. May Allah keep us on the straight path, amin.

We will keep on speaking out against falsehood and deception till our last breath. To inform and warn the people about falsehood, and to expose its reality is the focal point in trying to ensure that the truth always stays on top, and that the Deen of Allah prevails. How can it, then, ever be wrong to cricise falsehood?? If you see a person walking straight towards a fire, shouldn't you warn the person about the fire, and explain to him/her its destructive quality before he plunges straight into it???


Actually, it's not really any controversy, although that's what it's made up to be. The matter is quite simple and straightforward - Shias are not muslims, and they have absolutely nothing to do with Islam, contrary to the popular notion. Why aren't they Muslims will be the big question in anyone's mind who reads this. The reasons are too many to cover in this particular post, but shall be dealt with at a later stage.

Lexically, the word "shia" refers to a member of a particular party, or the followers of a particular person. Thus, the followers of Hadhrat Ali (RA) were known as the shia of Hadhrat Ali (RA), and this is in fact, how the term "shia" was coined (even though in reality these people are not his followers despite their claims.) The origins of the Shia can be traced back to Abdullah bin Saba, a jew who came from San'a, Yemen. He "accepted" Islam during the khilaafat of Hadhrat Uthman (RA), but was in actual fact a hypocrite masquerading under the guise of Islam, with the sole intention of spreading internal strife and wreaking havoc amongst the Muslims. When the enemy couldn't defeat the Muslims from outside, they infiltrated, and sought to destroy the Muslims from within by creating internal division and disunity, exactly what is happening today. Unfortunately, they are very successful at it, just like they were back then.
Abdullah bin Saba proceeded to iginite the flame of disloyalty and rebellion, that resulted in the viscious murder of Hadhrat Uthman (Ra), and which also led to the formation of the Shia sect.

After Hadhrat Ali (RA) beccame the khalifah, there was a group of people who were dissatisfied at the apparent indifference shown by the newly chosen khalifah concerning the murder of Hadhrat Uthman (RA). In actual fact, Hadhrat Ali (RA) had first hoped to stabilize his leadership, and calm the tense situation that prevailed, after which he could deal with the murderers of Hadhrat Uthman (RA). A group of people began rallying around Hadhrat Mu'awiyah (RA), the cousin of Hadhrat Uthman (RA), to avenge the murder of the khalifah. In the meanwhile, Ibn Saba was parading about, a wolf in sheep's clothing, spreading his poisonous venom. He claimed that Nabi (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) had borrowed all his teachings from Ali (RA). He went to the extreme of elevating the rank of Hadhrat Ali (RA) to that of Allah, just as the Christians had raised the status of Hadhrat Isa (AS) to that of Allah. In this way, Ibn Saba instigated the Battle of Sifin as well as the Battle of Jamal, which pitted Hadhrat Ali (RA) against Hadhrat Aishah (RA).

After the martyrdom of Ali (RA), Hadhrat Hassan (RA) took over the reigns of khilafat for six months, but in order to avoid  further confrontation, he handed over the khilafah to Hadhrat Muawiyah (Ra). During the reign of Yazid bin Muawiyah, the people of Kufah tried to deceive Hadhrat Hussein (RA) into thinking that they would make him the khalifah. For this reason he set off towards Kufah, but he was confronted and martyred on the way at Karbalah. This event was exploited by the Shias, and formed the basis of their new religion. Note the fact that it was the shias themselves who murdered Hadhrat Hussein (Ra). Thus, Shiaism metamorphosed into a religious faction that took its roots in Persia, modern day Iraq and Iran.

The most fundemental difference between the Sunnis and Shias, and which is one of the reasons why Shias are not Muslim, is how the Shias view the Sahaba (RA), Ibn Saba spread the utterly preposterous claim that Hadhrat Ali (RA) had enjoined upon his followers to malign Hadhrat Abu Bakr and Hadhrat Umar (Ra). It is for this reason that Shias take delight in disrespecting, and hurling insults at the Sahaba (RA). They believe that all the Sahaba turned their backs on Islam, and became disbelievers except for three - Hadhrat Miqdad bin Aswad, Hadbrat Abu Dharr Gifari, and Hadhrat Salman Farsi (Ra). They also believe that the wives of the Messenger (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) were bereft of iman, and have levelled false as well as vulgar accusations at them. Which religion in this world insults the disciples of their own Prophet?? It is for this very reason that Shias have stooped to a level lower than any other people in the world, and as a result, they will be assigned to the deepest pit of Hell which is reserved for the hypocrites.
The Shias have since then been trying to uproot Islam and bore holes into it's foundation. The Sunni- Shia conflict has continued throughout the ages in Iraq. During the reign of Saddam Hussein, the Shias were relatively suppressed, but after the American led terrorist invasion, they have since re-emerged and now form a large majority of the American installed "government." May Allah protect this Umman from the actions and efforts of such deviants and miscreants. Amin.

Nafl in Ramdhan

As we approach the last 10 days of the blessed month of Ramadhan, it is necessary that we clear up a mas'ala which we have, unfortunately, by and large been ignoring, either because of lack of knowledge, or knowingly, for whatever reason.
Many people, in the last 10 days, attend the masjid perform nafl salaah in congregation, after the taraweeh salaah has been performed. They do this, obviously, thinking that it is a great act of reward, and that such "ibaadat" is what is required of us in the search for laylatul qadr.
Thus, it should be clear that according to the Hanafi madhab, to perform nafl salaah in congregation in the masjid is IMPERMISSIBLE AND A SIN. Nafl salaah on its own, when there are more than 3 muqtadis behind the imam is not permissible. Then the component of performing it in the masjid is also added, which is again, on its own, not permissible.
So, what we imagine to be reward accruing for us is not reward at all, rather it is nothing but sin. We are actually making an effort, and going out of our way to commit sin in the last 10 blessed nights!!
Please, let us realize our error and stop from attending such congregations. Nafl is a salaah to be read individually inside the home - this act is immensely rewardable, and what is required from us.
Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) never performed nafl in the masjid. The reason is that nafl is not something to be advertised infront of all, rather it is a private matter between us and Allah.
Please let us inform our relatives, friends, all whom we know, so that they can be saved from this.

Reflect and Ponder (9)

Just to please the tastebuds for a few seconds, why sacrifice your hereafter by consuming doubtful food, especially sweets and chocolates? Is the hereafter so cheap that we can sell it away for a few seconds worth of tastebud pleasure??


If the dead could speak, what part of the unseen would they reveal to us?

Some would probably recount to us the horrors they experienced at the time of death, or the horrendous punshment meted out to them in their graves.
On the other hand, the fortunate ones would elucidate on their swift deaths, the joys, pleasures, and ecstasies that were granted to them in their graves.

Perhaps an unfortunate person would describe his final moments in the following words, "I was peacefully asleep in my room, when suddenly my sweet dreams were interrupted by a very ghastly noise. I opened my eyes, and staring at my face was the Angel of death. I abruptly sat up in my bed, shivering out of fear, tears streaming down my face.

I screamed at the angel, 'NO! NOT YET, I'M NOT YET READY. GIVE ME A CHANCE, SOME RESPITE ....!!'
My life flashed in front of my face as if in film frames. I had spent my entire life disobeying Allah, not once pondering over my hereafter. I'd been so busy having 'fun' - gamblling, drinking, flirting with women, that I had no time for worship. Now, as the angel of death moved towards me saying, 'Your time is up, you were given sufficient opportunities,' I knew that only punishment awaited me."

One of the inevitable realities that none can escape is death. Allah says in the Quran, "Every soul shall taste death."

Our time of death has long before been decreed and it cannot be delayed one second (however hard some Russian scientists try). Only good deeds will help us secure an abode in the everlasting paradise. Anas bin Malik narrates that The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said, "Three things follow a dead man to his grave. Two return, and one remains with him. His wealth, family, and deeds follow him. His wealth and family return, and his deeds remain behind. (Muslim)

Let us face it  - life is extremely short, and will pass by quickly. Death can occur at any second without prior notice. Every second is precious. By the mercy of Allah, we have been given an opportunity in this world to adorn our hereafter. In these priceless moments which we will never get back, let us focus all our efforts towards attaining the pleasure of Allah. May Allah grant us all death with Iman, ameen.

Reflect and Ponder (8)

A child should sometimes be ignored, because if he gets all the attention all the time, he will come to believe that he's only one who matters in the world, and no one else. This will then later develop into pride, arrogance, and selfishness, and he will stop caring for those around him, so long as his wants and desires are being fulfilled. This is extremely destructive, and this is actually what eats away at our social community structure.


My dear brothers and sisters, ponder over the following two scenarios. The first one- an extremely wealthy man sleeps peacefully on his gigantic four poster bed, a soft luxurious mattress covered with a flashily decorated silken bed spread. He is in a state of complete satiation and satisfaction, having partaken of the most sumptious and luxurious of foods. His house is a humongous palace. Now, contemplate over the second situation, a man sitting in a cold, bare, dark office room. He is exhausted, his eyelids are closing as if an invisible power continuously pushes them down, but he unrelentingly continues to work.

A quick glance at these two scenarios will draw a predictable reaction. You will be envious of the first man, and feel pity for the second. However, with an additional aspect added into each situation, your view will take a 180 degree turn. In the first one, the man is sleeping comfortably, but little does he know that a vicious fire is raging in his house and is about to enter his roon and totally envelope him. In the second, the man is working the entire night on a contract that will earn him a million dollars by the morning. Knowing this, you will retract your first reaction.

What do we learn from this example? Firstly, that we should not allow the glitter and glamour of this world to beguile us, to make us blind to the reality of life and oblivious of the fire of Hell which is closing in on us as a result of our deeds. Today we see celebrities - Hollywood stars, pop stars, sports stars, and all other kinds of "stars" wallowing in fame and an endless flow of money, and our hearts flutter with the thought, that oh, if only I was in the same place. This is because we have allowed ourselves to become mesmerized by the show and shine, not once thinking about their inside lives which are devoid of any vestiges of happiness, filled only with misery, sorrow, and heartache. It is all nothing but a deception carefully crafted and designed to lure us into it's unrelenting clutches. Sadly, we fall for it hook line and sinker.

Secondly, that we should be constantly making a concerted effort towards the upliftment of Deen, no matter how tired we get, because we know for a fact that when the sun of the temporary wordly life dips below the horizon and enters the eternal stage, Allah will not allow our efforts in this path to go unrewarded. May Allah extract from our hearts the love of this world and instil within us an ardent desire for the Hereafter. Ameen.


67 years ago, in August of 1945, the US government (or rather, the "higher authorities" which control the government) sentenced the entire city of Hiroshima and it's innocent unwary inhabitants to death in the first Atomic bomb attack in the history of human existence.

Ironically, (or maybe not) the grandson of the "Terrorist in chief" of that time, the man responsible for the perpetration of this vilest and cruelest act of "legal" terrorism, whose hands were soiled in the blood of more than 140,000 people, and countless others not accounted for, the man who "commanded" this genocide, President Harry Truman was in Japan, infact in Hiroshima, to "celebrate" this momentous achievment of his grandfather - the physical, mental, and social destruction of an entire populace.

In case people are unaware, the biggest terrorists in the world are those that sit in the oval office, not the poor stone throwing Palestinian child being ruthlessly gunned down by Israeli soldiers, nor "myths" hiding out in the caves of the Tora Bora mountains.

Some might clamour out, "but they attacked Pearl Harbour!!"
Well, how many know that Pearl Harbour was a self engineered smoke screen? It was President
Roosevelt (FDR) who was ordered to engineer this attack so that the US could plunge into WW2, and create an excuse for dropping the A-bomb!
Sounds familiar? 9-11 was also a self engineered attack that was used as a jumping board to pin the blame on the very countries they wanted to maim, and to then proceed with carpet bombing them into smithereens. You see how these people work??

However, even though this elite group of heartless satanists who control almost every government in this world, the ones who ordered Truman and FDR to do what they did, have at their disposal all the nuclear power they could wish for, enough to annihilate the entire world, they don't have Allah on their side.
Allah says in the Quran, "They plan, and Allah plans. And Allah is the best of planners."

However, what are WE doing to build that unbreakable connection with Allah? What are we doing to make sure Allah's help stays with us? Unfortunately NOTHING.
Today, the Muslim Ummah, far from standing up against and opposing this continuous onslaught, has actually sided with the enemy, and is playing a vital part in the effort to eradicate Islam.
If Muslims stand together, united, with full conviction and reliance in their hearts on the promises of Allah, then all the nuclear power in the world can't harm one hair.
But when will the Muslims realize this?? When will they awaken from their  slumber??

Reflect and Ponder (7)

If you try to keep each and every person happy, and constantly worry about how to get this done, then you will never be able to achieve anything in life, you will not be able to move ahead and get to your goals. To keep everyone happy all the time is a clear impossibility the pursuit of which is utterly futile, and this is the one of the biggest obstacles for a person trying to do something useful with his life. So, don't worry about what people think, just go ahead with what you have to do, provided of course, that it is something good.

Reflect and Ponder (6)

Knowledge exists potentially in the human soul, just like a seed in the soil waiting to germinate. By learning, the potential becomes actual.


These are the derogatory terms that the media loves to flaunt about (which, infact, it has been commanded to do by it's controlling "higher authorities" for whom it works, and to which it is answerable to) in it's unending campaign to undermine Islam. The poor unsuspecting masses, much like cattle happily munching on whatever fodder they are given, laps all of it up, believing it to be 100% true, not bothering the least bit to investigate whether the rubbish they are being fed has even the shadow of reality clinging to it or not. It's not their fault. After all, when billions of taxpayers' dollars are being spent in the effort to mentally program, brainwash, and control those very same taxpayers, then what else can you expect?

In a recent news story, the arrest of a Tunisian "Muslim" man for openly consuming alcohol is termed a result of an Islamist movement.

The media wants to push down our throats (and obviously it has been very successful at it) it's claim that these very sinister sounding terms refer to an aberration from the norm, not what Islam actually is. According to "them", only that Islam is acceptable which bows it's head down in total subjugation to their whims and fancies in "their" overt campaign to rid the world of religion, morality and order, in the same way that a helpless and docile sheep bows it's head to go under the knife.

Wikipedia (which is also under the "higher authorities"), defines Islamism as
"The belief that Islam should govern social, political, as well as personal life."
Amazing! That matches up exactly to what we have been commanded by Allah in the Quran - "Enter into Islam in totality and don't follow the footsteps of Satan."  Doesn't totality include social, political and personal life??
Wow! So this means that these terms refer to, not withstanding the erroneous (or perhaps purposeful) inclusion of deviant sects such as Shiaism, Salafism, and Maudoodism, the actual reality of Islam, it's very existence, such a concept without which it cannot even be termed as Islam.
Infact, what is being conveyed in this verse is that our typical modernised, westernised Muslim who has absolutely no vestige of his Islamic identity left besides a name and an occasional prayer, is following Satan. That is exactly what "they" want because "they" take Satan to be their god!

So next time we see these names appearing in the media (which is probably not to long away as the media is addicted to them), let us stop, think, and ponder over the reality, and how the screen is being pulled over our eyes.

I saw in the masjid (mosque) an old man, completely bent, who could hardly walk himself, helping a blind man get to his chair. LESSON: A person is never too old or too weak or too sick or too poor to be able to help someone. All it takes is a good heart.

Reflect and Ponder (4)

If you are involved in any good work, which is definitely true, then the clear sign of it being the truth is that there will always be people to oppose you and to be against you. However, if everybody is happy with what you are doing, not even one person is against you, then know well that there is something wrong in what you are doing.


This news is, of course, a few days old, and the web is flooded with articles on it, but it is humorous and comical enough to be worth writing upon. A Russian "scientist" claims to be able to give us the option of immortality in holographic avatars by 2045, saying that this is how we will be able to defeat sickness, old age, and even death. Could anything, I ask you, be more preposterous than what this cartoon has suggested?

Being human is synonymous with being mortal, immortality is in total negation of the human existence. Everybody knows and believes that, not only Muslims (even though they might verbally deny it, but in their heart, they are forced to believe it). Infact, the only reality about this life is DEATH!
Allah says in the Quran in three different places, "EVERY SOUL SHALL TASTE DEATH"
In another verse, "Wherever you are, death will reach you, even though you may be in fortified and strong forts." So, whether we hide ourselves in forts or in holographic avatars, there is no running away from death.
How can we defy sickness, old age and death, whereas this is the road that every human who has ever been born into this world has traversed??

I think that this Russian won't even live to 2045, caught by the same thing he was trying to help himself and the world escape from - death!

The truth of the matter is that these people are scared to death of death! (pun unintended) They cannot bear to be seperated from their earthly abode because they have been intoxicated with the superficial glitter and glamour of worldly life, knowing that the imminent arrival of death will herald nothing but eternal pain and punishment.
Allah says in the Quran, "And most definitely, you will find them, from amongst all people, the most greedy over life" and "they want to be given a life of 1000 years, whereas even if they are given this life, it wouldn't be able to save them from punishment." Don't these divine words fit perfectly?
This is the reality which we want to shy away from, which we want to deny.
This short worldly life has been thought to be the be all and end all, and this is the exact reason why such heinious crimes as total world control and enslavement, and eradication of entire populaces are perpetrated. If people had death and retribution infront of them, would they be able to muster up such courage and boldness???

Reflect and Ponder (3)

Criticism is better than praise, because praise makes a person go very high, the result being self approval, self liking, and pride, which can lead to immediate destruction and a big fall. Criticism, on the other hand, keeps a person low, the result being humility, a laudable quality. Innate base human nature is the total opposite, we love praise and hate criticism. Allah says in the Quran, "It is very possible that you dislike something, whereas it is better for you, and it is very possible that you love something whereas it is bad for you." Human intelligence, with regards to knowing what is good and what is not, is extremely shallow.
  However, the ideal condition is not to get affected by either one. (criticism and praise)

My dear brothers and sisters, Allah has blessed us with this invaluable opportunity of Ramadhan, an opportunity through which we can secure the forgiveness of Allah, and Jannah. Every second is priceless and is not to be wasted, and once a second is gone, then nothing and no one can bring it back. The enemies of Islam know this very well, and they CANNOT let it happen. They cannot see you and I doing good and getting closer to our Creator, forming an unbreakable bond and connection with Him. For this very reason, the enemies of Islam have organized something which will distract us, something that will ensure that this Ramadhan, this golden opportunity, goes to waste, down the drain. What I am referring to is nothing other than the LONDON OLYMPICS.
Remember, these olympics have been custom designed to distract the attention of THE WHOLE WORLD, MUSLIMS AND NON MUSLIMS ALIKE so that they can carry on with their sinister agenda unhindered. They know that they have succeeded in making the populace into a mere herd of dumb cattle completely in their control, and whose attention they can direct to where they fancy.
 At this very moment, how many Muslims globally will be glued on to their tv sets, their eyes fixed on the half naked men and women jumping around on the screen, forgetting that this is Ramadhan, oblivious of the fact that they are obligated to perform salaah, too busy to even glance at the dusty Quran on the shelf.
Is this how we thank Allah for blessing us with such a great bounty? What if we don't see another Ramadhan. What if this is the only chance, and we're wasting it away in sin and disobedience. Remember, just as good deeds are multiplied in this month, so are sins.
Just imagine someone lended to us his money making machine, in which you feed in normal paper and money comes out from the other side. He lends it to us for exactly 30 days, not a second more. Tell me, would we rest FOR EVEN A SECOND in those 30 days? No, we would use all the time we have to make as many green notes as possible, forgetting everything else, eating, drinking, and even sleeping!! We'd be literally swaying with intoxication at the rustle and smell of the notes! What about Ramadhan then? Through this machine, how much can we make in 30 days, a million, a couple of million maybe, but what will we take with us when we leave this world? Not a dime or a cent. Whereas, an good deed we do in Ramadhan is stored away for us as reward, to stay with us for ETERNITIY!!

Ok, let's carry on where we left off (was feeling very sleepy, had to take a nap!).
The way I want to carry out this objective is to make this blog into a lighthouse which sends beams into the dark oceans of ignorance and deceit, to create an awareness and an awakening to the reality which has escaped the masses, or has been hidden from them. The truth needs to be told, and the truth will prevail, and the propagation of truth is our responsibility, whatever it costs us.
In the Quran, Allah says, "And Say, the truth has come and falsehood has vanished. Verily falsehood is bound to vanish."
So, want to know the truth and help spread it?
The once pure and pristine picture of Islam has been muddied beyond recognition by the mass media which is in the control of a secret elite society that is bent on uprooting and demolishing the very foundation of Islam, in establishing a new world order in which chaos will be the name of the game, to herald in the coming of their leader, and god, the Dajjal, the one eyed messiah whose fitnah (trials and tests) we already find ourselves in.
This society has been accomplishing its objectives for many hundreds of years, using a myriad of clandestine methods known to only a few. We will try to expose these methods, which directly connect to all of humanity, not just Muslims. Today unfortunately, the Muslim masses have been brainwashed into thinking that Islam is the problem, and that whatever the enemy says is 100% correct beyond doubt.
But, most importantly (and this should be our line of focus), what is the solution? To be as succinct as possible, it is to create a solid and unbreakable connection with Allah, and the way to do this is to make taubah from all sins and purify our hearts from all evil qualities which are obstacles and barriers between us and Allah. We need to iron out the creases in our Deeni condition through the heart of the dhikr of Allah. This is a lifelong effort which is termed as "Tazkiyatun Nafs" or "Tasawwuf" (Purification and Cleaning of the Nafs) and results in a person becoming a wali of Allah.
For this reason this blog has been created, and what we encourage from you are questions. Feel free to comment, ask, and share posts with others so that more people can benefit.
For any personal questions, problems or difficulties, you can write to us on our email address, or send a whatsapp message to +254731724036

This weak one begs Allah to make this blog a means of hidayat for the entire world, and grant us the eternal sweetness of reaching the peak of the Awliyaa-e-Siddiqeen. Aameen.


The primary objective is to be of service to humanity at large. How, you may ask? By trying to break open the intense darkness of ignorance that is blanketing the world today with the rays and beams of knowledge. Such knowledge which can be a means of salvation for the entire human family, a means of extracting mankind from the abysses and pits of hedonism in which it wallows, in which it has been entrapped by its enemies. The knowledge of Islam.
This blog is for Muslims and Non Muslims alike. What we will try to do is clear the ominous clouds of deception that hover on our horizon today, clouds created by those who do not want us to know the truth. Understanding the reality of the world we live in, the problems we face, and the solutions to them, is something very few have done. We have to create that awareness in all about what we are really going through today, that all is not what it seems to be. Everything around us is a deception, a web of deceit woven very carefully by our enemy, so that for our entire lives on this earth, we'll stay caught up in this web, not being able to get to the reality of life, about why we are here, why we exist.
