Raising the voice in recitation during swalaat

Raising the voice in recitation to the point of distracting those around. It is recommended (mustahabb) that one hears himself, not to the point that it interrupts anyone who is reciting the Qur’aan or making salaah.


Al-Bukhaari and Muslim both transmit from‘Umraan Ibn Husain (radiallahu ‘anhu) that the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) prayed Dhuhr and there was a man behind him reciting ‘sabbihisma rabbikal-‘alaa’ , so when he (sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) finished he said: Who among you was reciting or who was the reciter? The man said, “Me.” So he (sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said: I thought that some of you were disputing with me in it.


The scholars state: The meaning of his words is a disapproval of the act. Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullah) stated: Whoever is reciting the Qur’aan and the people are praying additional prayer then it is not correct for him to recite aloud thus disturbing them because the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alaihiwa sallam) left some of his companions while they were praying As-Sahr (before dawn) and he said: O people, each of you is seeking salvation from his Rabb therefore do not overpower one another with your recitation.

t was narrated from Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“A person may speak a word that pleases Allaah and not pay any attention to it, but Allaah raises him many degrees in status thereby. And a person may speak a word that angers Allaah and not pay any attention to it, and… He may throw him into Hell because of it.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 6113.

Reviving the sunnah of our beloved prophet Muhammad [pbuh]

O Muslims!We are urged to follow the Sunnah of our Prophet – Muhammad peace be upon him. Revive and apply it in our daily life. It is the proof for loving the Prophet – Peace be upon him – and a sign for the true belief.

The Sunnah is (Prophetic deeds, actions, habits, way of life) the deeds for which you will be rewarded if you apply… The Sunnah is repeated day and night and is easy to be applied by every one of us insha Allah
The advantages of applying the Prophetic Deeds:

1- Reaching to the rank of love by Allah.

2- Compensating any shortage in the religious duties.

3- Preserving from committing heresies.

4- Respecting the religious rituals.

Allah the Almighty said: {Say, [O Muhammad], “If you should love Allah, then follow me, [so] Allah will love you and forgive your sins. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful} (Aal-Imran: 31).

Al Hassan Al Basri said, explaining the above mentioned verse: The sign of their love to Allah is following the Sunnah of His Prophet – Peace be upon him – because the rank of the believer can be measured by the extent of following the Prophet – Peace be upon him – therefore, as much as he is following the Sunnah, Allah will give him a higher rank.

Let the Qur’an drive you: happiness lies there

Enough is enough!!!!

When I go through many dawah posts or Muslim posts, I read the same….it is as if many Muslims cannot look further. They believe that being a Muslim is to pressure others about what they have to wear, how they must wear….
Can this be dawah? 
Telling people a million times over to wear hijab, how to wear it, how the hair should not go out…how her dress should be tight….
Well, as a Muslim, we need to SIT with a teacher and learn! Learning is fundamental. Why keep on repeating the same thing all the time.
Once a person is convinced WHY he/she has to do something, he/she will do it with his/her CONSCIENCE.
Let us learn things that will take us out of this darkness. We are treading in darkness….Let’s be united and get out of it
How? Learn to read the Qur’an with Arabic and Tajweed and then, whenever you are in trouble, read it with your heart, you will see how the Qur’an drives your heart in love, care and tenderness….
There is no beauty except the beauty which Almighty Allah has given to you…..the beauty of the Qur’an which is everlasting.



Ibn Abbas (May Allah be pleased with him) said:

“Whoever loves for the sake of Allah, and hates for the sake of Allah, and befriends for the sake of Allah and shows enmity for the sake of Allah, would get Allah’s friendship. Without abiding by this, no one can get the real taste (sweetness) of Iman (Belief) though he may have been a frequent offerer of prayer and fasts. Today people keep relationship, and love only for some worldly reason but this will not provide them any benefit (on the Day of Judgement).” [Ibn Jarir (May Allah be pleased with him) mentioned this Ha d it h .]


In interpreting the verse:


“Then all their relations will be cut off from them.” 2: 166


Ibn Abbas (May Allah be pleased with him) said it means “love”.



Setting rivals to Allah….

“And set not up with Allah any other ilah (god) lest you should be thrown into Hell, blameworthy and rejected.” (17:39)


Indeed, people have taken their passions for their gods, they have taken their loved ones, their families, their work….and whatever their hearts wish, as the centre of interest and has therefore neglected their meeting with Allah.


This is the reason why many people nowadays are in trouble and face confusion. The heart is sick…sick of love for others. They have been misled by their passions and desires.



“Know you, that the life of this world is but play and amusement, pomp and mutual boasting and multiplying, [in rivalry] among yourselves, riches and children” s 57 v 20


So, the more we run after the world, the more distressed and hopeless we will be.So, do not set rivals with Allah. do not love people as you should love Allah.


“And be ye not like those who forgot Allah; and He made them forget their own souls! such are the rebellious transgressors!” s Al Hashr 59 v 19


Allah Almighty said: “Say: If your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your wives, your kindred; the wealth that you have gained, the commerce in which you fear a decline, and the dwellings in which you delight …are dearer to you than Allah and His Messenger, and striving hard and fighting in His Cause, then wait until Allah brings about His Decision (torment).” (9:24) 


May Allah help us to love Him the most, insha Allah and remain steadfast in His Deen.

Knowing God in order to be happy….

“I am as My servant knows Me. When he seeks Me and remembers Me, I am with him. If he seeks Me inwardly, I will seek him with my Essence. If he remembers and mentions Me in good company, I remember and declare him as My good servant in better company.” hadith Qudsi


Do you want to compete for this world or not?

Whoso desires the cultivation of the hereafter We give him increase in his cultivation, and whoso desires the
cultivation of this world We give him thereof and he has no portion in the hereafter.
