  3. The Scientific Effects Of Saying Allah

  4. Suspected Bombers

    Its my life, thats exactly what I was thinking. I think half of the things they say are just big time rubbish. Many people died. Their clothes got burnt off and they find his papers and cards next to a seat. Thats kinda like unbelievable.
  5. Asking Again And Again

    Asking Again and Again Many times in our lives, we come across people who would keep asking us for favours. For the first and second time, we happily give them what they want. However, if they keep on asking, we try to hide from them so that they don't ask us again. I believe, all humans do the same. Even a mother gets irritated at the child if he/she keeps on asking her for things again and again. On the other hand, the more we ask Allah, the more pleased He gets. Such is Allah, the most Merciful. We should all learn the ways to ask Allah for anything we need. Reflections of a Slave of Allah
  6. How a Person Could Change! The following story was narrated by Brother Mahmood from Preston, England. Once, he along with a group of Muslims were visiting a city for inviting others to Allah. They happened to pass by a group of youths who were Muslims by birth but became gang members. The brothers didn't give those gang members the negative attitude that others give while passing by them. Rather, they went and shook hands with them out of brotherhood. With love and affection, the brothers invited the youths to come to the Masjid. Not being familiar with such kindness, the gang members were surprised and decided to come to the Masjid for once. These youths were so much away from Islam that they were smoking in the Masjid and doing a lot of other disrespectful acts. However, Brother Mahmood and others were discussing with them about the Greatness of Allah with patience and endurance. A time came when the brothers had to return to their homes and before leaving they advised the gang members to turn towards Allah. After several years, Brother Mahmood was attending a large gathering of Muslims when suddenly someone called him from the back. There were few people dressed in sunnah standing behind him. They asked Brother Mahmood if he recognizes them. They told him, “We are those gang members whom you visited few years back. We decided to go out and learn more about Islam and eventually changed our lives.†We should never underestimate certain people because of the way they are as every individual has the capacity to become a friend of Allah Ta'alah. Never think low of anyone, no matter what they may be doing. It is only Allah who guides; we can only try with kindness to reach out to their hearts.
  7. The scientific effects of saying Allah...Truely amazing! Vander Hoven, a psychologist from Netherlands, announced his new discovery about the effect of reading the Qur'an and repeating the word Allah both on patients and on normal persons. The Dutch professor confirms his discovery with studies and research applied on many patients over a period of three years. Some of his patients were non-Muslims, others do not speak Arabic and were trained to pronounce the word "Allah" clearly; the result was great, particularly on those would suffer from dejection and tension.'Al Watan,' a Saudi daily reported that the psychologist was quoted to say that Muslims who can read Arabic and who read the Qur'an regularly can protect themselves from psychological diseases. The psychologist explained how each letter in the word "Allah" affects healing of psychological diseases. He pointed out in his research that pronouncing the first letter in the word "Allah" which is the letter (A), released from the respiratory system, Controls breathing. He added that pronouncing the velar consonant (L) in the Arabic way, with the tongue touching slightly the upper part of the jaw producing a short pause and then repeating the same pause constantly, relaxes the aspiration. Also, pronouncing the last letter which is the letter (H) makes a contact between the lungs and the heart and in turn this contact controls the heart beat. What is exciting in the study is that this psychologist is a non-Muslim, but interested in Islamic sciences and searching for the secrets of the Holy Qur'an. Allah Ta'alah says, " We will show them Our signs in the universe and in their own selves, until it becomes manifest to them that this (Qur'an) is the truth ." (Holy Qur'an 42:53) [Translated from the Qatari "Arraya" Daily Sunday, 24 March, 2002]

  11. Unable To Read The Kalimah.

    Thereupon Bilal went, and while entering the door he heard Alqamah saying, “La illaha illa Allah.†(Concerning this), Bilal remarked, “It is surely true that while Alqamah's mother was angry with him his tongue was tied, and now that she is pleased with him his tongue is freed.†Alqamah died the same day. The Prophet peace be upon Him came to him and gave the order for his washing and shrouding, and then prayed the funeral prayer for him and buried him. He then stood by the side of his grave and said, “You company of Muhajireen and Helpers, if anyone favors his wife over his mother, Allah Ta'alah and His angels and all the people curse him! Allah Ta'alah does not accept his spending (in charity) and his uprightness unless he repents toward Allah, the Glorious and Majestic, and reconciles with her and attains her pleasure, because Allah's pleasure consists in her pleasure and Allah's anger consists in her anger.†Reported in Tabarani and Ahmed.
  12. Unable To Read The Kalimah.

    The Prophet's messenger came to her and informed her of the Prophet's message. She said, “May my life be a ransom for him, it is my pleasure to go to him!†She then stood up, leaning on her walking stick, and came to the Prophet peace be upon Him and greeted him. The Prophet peace be upon Hm returned her greeting and said to her, “Umm Alqamah, tell me the truth, for otherwise Allah Most High will reveal the truth to me! What is the situation concerning your son, Alqamah?†She replied, “Messenger of Allah, he prays much, fasts a great deal, and spends a great amount in charity.†The Prophet peace be upon Him said, “And what about yourself?†She said, “Messenger of Allah, I am angry with him.†He said, “Why?†She replied, “Messenger of Allah, he has preferred his wife to me and has disobeyed me.†Then Allah's Messenger peace be upon Him said, “Umm Alqamah, surely your anger has prevented Alqamah's tongue from pronouncing the Shahadah.†He then turned to Bilal and said, “Bilal, go out and collect a quantity of firewood.†She said, “Messenger of Allah, what do you plan to do?†He replied, “I will burn him in front of your eyes.†She said, “Messenger of Allah, he is my son! My heart cannot bear your burning him in front of me!†He said, “Umm Alqamah, Allah's punishment is more severe and more lasting! Therefore, if you want Allah to forgive him, be reconciled to him. By the One in Whose Hand is my soul, the prayer, fasting, and spending in charity (which he has done) are of no benefit to Alqamah as long as you are angry with him! Thereupon she said, “Messenger of Allah, I call upon Allah Most High and His angels and the Muslims who are present to be my witnesses that I am pleased with my son Alqamah.†Allah's Messenger said, “Bilal, go to him and see whether he is now able to say, “La illaha illa Allah†or not. It may be that Umm Alqamah is saying something for my sake which is not in her heart.â€
  13. A mother's Rights. At the time of the Prophet peace be upon him, there was a young man named Alqamah. He was very diligent in obeying Allah Ta'alah by engaging in prayer and fasting and spending in charity. Then he fell ill and his illness became serious. His wife went to the Prophet peace be upon Him and said, â€My husband, Alqamah, is on his deathbed. I therefore came to tell you, Messenger of Allah, about his condition.†The Prophet peace be upon Him sent for Ammar or Suhaib and Bilal, and told them to go to him (Alqamah) and have him repeat the Shahadah. Thereupon they went to him and found him in the agony of death. They asked him to say, “La illaha illa Allah,†but his tongue was unable to pronounce it. At that, they came and told the Messenger of Allah peace be upon Him that he was unable to repeat the Shahadah. The Prophet peace be upon Him asked, “Is either of his parents alive?†He was told, “Messenger of Allah, his mother is, but she is very old.†The Prophet peace be upon Him sent her a message that if it was convenient for her (that is, if she was able to go out), she should come to him; otherwise she should stay in her house and the Prophet peace be upon Him would come to her.
  14. Faith & Patience.

    During these times we must remember Allah Ta'alah more, pray harder, and be more thankful instead of being dissatisfied with our condition. We should praise and thank Allah Ta'alah for every condition that He tests us with. As we know these are the times when Satan tries to work on us the most by playing with our minds, emotions, and weaknesses. Allah would never forget to reward a servant for such a great task. "And (remember) Ayyub when he cried to his Lord: Verily, distress has seized me and you are the Most Merciful of all who show mercy." [Quraan:21:83] "So We answered His call, and We removed the distress that was on Him, and We restored His family to Him (that he had lost), and the like thereof along with them, as a mercy from Ourselves and a Reminder for all those who worship us." [Quraan:21:84] May Allah give us the faith and the patience when we are tested. Aameen!
  15. Faith & Patience.

    Satan realized that He couldn't misguide Ayyub, so He went to His wife to mislead Her, by reminding Her of their previous life style. Satan was successful in misleading His wife. This led to her complaining to Ayyub about their present state. This caused Ayub to become upset with Her and He vowed that He would beat Her 100 times if Allah Ta'alah gave Him back His health. Satan was not successful in misguiding Ayyub. Allah Ta'alah then restored Him with all that He had lost. Ayyub now had to fulfill His vow of striking his wife. Allah ordered Him to strike His wife once with a 100 pieces of good smelling grass, out of mercy for Her. Indeed Allah is the most merciful. The story of Ayyub should be a constant reminder for us all. We should read this story often just to remind ourselves. Many of us complain about the little things in life. Allah tested Ayyub in ways that we can really relate to. His faith and patience is something that we as true believing Muslims should try and implement in our lives, when Allah tests us in these situations. In the Quraan Allah Ta'alah says, "Truly! We found Him patient. How excellent a slave! Verily, he was ever returning in repentance (to us)." [Quran:38:4].
