  1. On the whole, Surah Yaseen is considered as the heart of the holy Quran because there is a hadith from the apostle of Allah (peace be upon him and his household) that said:There is a heart for everything, and the heart of the Quran is Surah Yaseen.


  2. Pursuit of knowledge by each individual is the essential first step. Knowledge gained must also be practiced.One cannot simply keep knowledge to himself.It must also be shared and disseminated. The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) practiced all aspects of knowledge fully throughout his life.


  3. The first type of love that Islam calls for is the Love of Allah, praise be to Him. This love makes you avoid committing sins in order not to make whom you love, Allah, get angry with you.  This love also urges you to contemplate all the different aspect of nature that usually lead you to have a deeper faith in the Creator who created all this beauty round us.


  4. Islam is a natural way of life that encourages one to give due attention to their relationship with God and His creation. Islam teaches that it is through the doing of good deeds and seeking the pleasure of God that souls find true happiness and peace. It is in this context that the word Islam derives from the root word “salam,” or peace.


  5. Allah, the creator of the universe and master of the two worlds, has revealed 99 names of His majestic supreme in the much revered holy book of the Muslims, the Quran. Each name embodies in itself the qualities and Abilities of our Creator and we seek forgiveness of our sins and misdeeds by reciting the suitable name of Allah. We also read these names to thank Allah for thanking in utmost humility for the countless blessings He continues to shower on us every second of the day. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: 'To God belongs 99 names, 100 minus 1, anyone who memorizes them will enter Paradise; He (God) is odd (odd number, he is the Only One), and He loves odd numbers.


  6. The Quran is in every detail the unique and miraculous text which was revealed to Muhammad fourteen centuries ago. Not one word of its 114 chapters has been changed over the centuries.The Quran deals with all topics which concern us as human beings: wisdom, doctrine, worship, and law, but its basic theme is the relationship between God and His creatures.

  7. The Qur’an says several times that Allah is the most Merciful. In fact all the 114 Surahs i.e. chapters of the Glorious Qur’an except for Surah Taubah chapter 9, begin with the beautiful formula, Bismillah-hir-Rahman-nir-Rahim, which means, "In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful".


  8. Unlike the ways followers of other religions and faiths commemorate the births of their prophets, Muslims celebrate Eid-e-Milad un Nabi on 12th Rabi-ul-Awal in which they gather to discuss the bounty and favor which Allah SWT has blessed the Muslims with by guiding them to the righteous path of Islam and the teachings of Holy Quran and Sunnah of the last messenger of Allah.


  9. How great is the Prophet, may infinite peace and blessings be upon him? Every second, the name “Muhammad” is uttered somewhere in the world. As the light of the sun moves across the globe, the call to prayer is announced in every city, testifying to the Oneness of Allah, and Muhammad as His final messenger. Sermons, for Friday prayers, Eid prayers, or wedding are not considered lawful unless the name of Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, is taken.


  10. The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "There is a door in Paradise called Ar-Raiyan, and those who observe fasts will enter through it on the Day of Resurrection and none except them will enter through it. It will be said, 'Where are those who used to observe fasts?' They will get up, and none except them will enter through it. After their entry the door will be closed and nobody will enter through it."


  11. In Islam, love is first for Allah (s.w.t), occupying the heart and conscience in such a way that it overwhelms concealed everything else. It is reported, "I never saw a thing but I saw Allah before it, after it, and along with it". The Glorious Qur'an says: "The believers are reliable in (their) love for Allah.


  12. The Prophet’s life is full of examples that show his simplicity before and after he was called for Prophethood. Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) was a prophet, a teacher, a statesman, and a judge. He used to milk his goat, mend his shoes, and visit poor people when they got sick. His life was an amazing model of simplicity and humbleness.


  13. Prophet Yusuf (A) was the son of Prophet Ya'qub (A). In the Bible he is referred to as Joseph son of Jacob. The Holy Qur'an has mentioned his story in a beautiful chapter entitled "Surah Yusuf". Prophet Yusuf (A) had 11 brothers. He was one of the youngest and possessed excellent character and manners. His father loved him dearly.
