  1. Song name : Qasida Burda Sharif (Maulla Ya Salli Wasallim ) Love from india Album : Rise up Label : QB Productions Singer : Mazhar Khan Qasida Burda Shareef also famous as Maullaya Salli Wasallim is one of the best and much sung Qasida in the honour of our Prophet (PBUH) around the world. Many versions have been made and much appreciated by the people. Here we are with the Maullaya Salli Wasallim Love from India from our album Rise Up. Singer Mazhar Khan has been singing this when he was 5 and always thought of making it once on the platform where it can be heard by others. We picked up a theme with concept in this video that everyone comes across the needy in their day to day life but mostly we choose to deny from helping them because of our busy schedule and other commitments, mostly because of our own greed. Our Prophet always taught us that one should always help the needy and the almighty will give you the return with much much great bounties. Lets hear it and see how you can also find people to help and give some of your time to make this world a beautiful place to live. In Sha Allah. Thanks to our team

  5. Barcelona's Islamic Heritage in a Church By Farrukh I. Younus Sant Paul del Camp church. 'Over the past few years I have regularly attended the city of Barcelona for a number of conferences, this year was no different except that I took to exploring signs of an Islamic influence to the city. Finding Muslims in this city is not a troubled search; more than 300,000 live there, mostly from North Africa. And with 250,000 from Morocco, is it any wonder that the first Muslim member of the Catalan Parliament, Mohammed Chaib, is of Moroccan descent! But no, this wasn’t what I was looking for, rather, something historic. If Muslims came to Spain in the 8th century, and were expelled, at least from this region of Spain, Catalonia, in the 15th century, surely there must be some evidence or presence of Islam in Barcelona. Muslims first step foot in Barcelona in the 8th century when 'the Moors' conquered the city but their presence lasted less than a hundred years as 'the Franks' occupied the city turning it into a military strong post. Still, the Muslim presence in the Catalan region surrounding Barcelona remained for quite some centuries. As I discovered, Catalonia, the most north eastern province of Spain, bordering France, did indeed have an Islamic influence. Barcelona on the other hand, did not. At least, that is what I was able to determine having searched the internet and contacted a number of Spanish publishers who specialized in the history of the region. The cloisters. Old Church With Islamic Architecture! My search found one publication which mentioned traces of the Islamic architecture in what is Barcelona’s oldest church, Sant Paul del Camp. Built outside the city walls surrounded by green fields as its name suggests (Camp = Countryside), today it is just a short walk from Las Ramblas the main tourist street of the city. Arriving late Sunday morning at the church I noticed a small crowd gathering within the church. Outside stood a sign reading ‘Entry to cloisters 3 Euros', I thought, what luck! Inside I asked a lady where I might find the cloisters only to discover that they would be open briefly after Sunday Mass, for which she invited me to stay. Now it has been years since I have attended any form of Sunday service. It may have been a regular feature when I was a young boy at boarding school, but since then, like many of my Christian friends, I had not attended one. I thought to myself, why not, I will stand at one of the pews towards the back. As the service began my first thought was that this is no different than going to a Masjid where the sermon is conducted in Arabic – I understand one, just as much as I understand the other. Looking around, aside from a couple of Polish girls who like me, were waiting to visit the cloisters, the vast majority of individuals were elderly couples. In a strange way, while the church was subtly high tech with an integrated speaker system and good lighting, the balance of old church with old churchgoers seemed to synchronize a certain harmony. This simple fact is proof to me that not only must there have been dialogue between Muslims and Christians during this period, but that dialogue was so good that a church building included strong Islamic design themes. Every now and then a word I would recognize would be spoken, the most common being the reference to Prophet Jesus where in addition to saying "Peace be upon him" I would add, 'There is no god but Allah'. While I know and believe this to be true, that sitting in a church where today Prophet Jesus is referred to as the 'son of God' (Exalted be God above the false things ascribed to Him), I simply would not have felt complete without professing these statements to myself. As I pondered the history of the building while visiting the 'Islamic' cloisters, an elderly Catalan gentlemen was telling the two Polish girls that this church was built on land that used to be a Masjid. Of course the official version found almost everywhere reads that the Benedictines built this church after a Muslim raid destroyed the previous church in 985 AD. Whether there was a church first or a Masjid first, I do not know, in fact, to me as a non-historian, it does not really matter - I will let the historians have that discussion. What mattered to me was the fact that this small cloister built in the 12th century featured Islamic Moorish architecture. This simple fact is proof to me that not only must there have been dialogue between Muslims and Christians during this period, but that dialogue was so good that a church building included strong Islamic design themes. Yet today, despite such a large Muslim community in Barcelona, the city does not have a single Masjid: lots of converted shops and garages, but no Masjid. Much of this, as often in the world today, is down to misunderstandings of the Muslim belief, as well as generic fear. Lessons to Remember Of course I wonder then how Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, made space for the 60 visiting Christians to pray in his Masjid in Medina. Knowing full well that their faith entailed a degree of shirk (associating partners to God, the highest 'crime' in Islam), still, when they came from Najran, he gave them space in his Masjid to conduct their prayers. [Reference: Ibn Ishaque, The Life of Muhammad, pp 270-77, English translation, Guillaume] And despite these fundamental disagreements with regards to faith, a treaty was set up between the Muslims and the Christians of Najran. [Reference: AI‑Baladhuri, Ahmad ibn Yahyi ibn Jibir, Futuh al‑buldan, p. 76; Kitab al­amwal, p. 272] This example of Muslim engagement with non-Muslims, through agreement and mutual respect seems to have caught on with the Muslim presence in Spain where it has been observed that "In the earliest period of Muslim domination of Iberia there is evidence of extensive interaction, attested to by shared cemeteries and churches, bilingual coinage, an the continuity of Roman pottery types". [Reference: Brian A Catlos, Christians and Muslims of Catalonia and Aragon 1050-1300, p 33] In early Islam this tradition of mutual respect was continued when Caliph Umar, on his way to Syria stopped by a Christian town to meet the Bishop of Ayla spending a significant part of his day with him. And more locally, one of Prophet Muhammad’s neighbors in Medina with whom he retained good relations, a Jewish man, when the Prophet died, Caliph Umar provided him with a stipend, a pension, from the public treasury. That is right, Muslim taxes were paying for the pension of a Jewish man living in Medina. [ Reference: Abu Yusuf, Kitab al-kharaj, Cairo, 1382 H., p.122] In the example of Prophet Muhammad, and one of the first Muslim rulers, Caliph Umar, we witness the most perfect engagement model with non-Muslim, where while there were disagreements with regards to aspects of faith, people came together on common terms. In recent years, the opinions of the minority hard-line Muslims seem clearly to be at odds with these inclusive examples of early Islam. There is so much anger and hatred for non-Muslims by a minority of vocal Muslims it is shameful. Does not Allah say in the Qur'an, (Do not let hatred for a people incite you into being unjust. Justice is closer to piety. Have fear of God. God is aware of what you do.) [The Qur'an- 5:8]? The perception of Muslims in the past as well as Muslim today has been tainted first by misrepresentation and second by fear mongering. The task of men such as Mohammed Chaib, Catalan Parliament's Muslim member, is to break down some of these barriers, show the everyday and beautiful Islam practiced by the vast majority of Muslims and encourage the local government to allow a Masjid to be built. After all, how better to address misrepresentations of Islam than by supporting a Masjid that promotes the better interpretations of Islam? The Muslim contribution to Barcelona is brief, not to mention sketchy, despite the much stronger, positive influence of Islam in Spain. Perhaps with time, barriers such as fear and misunderstanding will be broken down, and Muslims can find a more inclusive way to contribute to Catalan society. That the architecture of the oldest Church of Barcelona includes strong signs of Islamic design, appreciated for hundreds of years, should be a proof that the Christian-Muslim dynamics of Barcelona today and into the future can also benefit from the positive influences that Islam can bring.

  6. Salaam alaikum to the Muslim members of Gawaher.com I have a few question: Why do some people seem more shy and aloof than others? What makes them shy and uncofident? SubhanAllah. I have a sister-in-law who I believe wasn't supposed to be my sis in law because my brother was supposed to marry another Muslim girl whose mom promised when we were kids that she (the Muslim girl) and my bro get married to each other in the future... but some things changed, so my bro had to marry our first cousin. This cousin of mine I think has to be the most shyest person I've ever met in my life. Even to say yes, she just says 'mm' and when saying 'no' she just shakes her head. And the funny thing is, she's one year older than me and seems to be a bit immature. She's a sister in law whom I can never do any activities with or even start a communication with. If you ask her a question, most of the time she'll give a brief answer and not bother asking back. She seems very very unfriendly, and because of that I've decided that she is a sis in law whom I can never be friends with. There is a Hadith that goes something like "There is no good in a person who is unfriendly and whom others treat in an unfriendly way" or "There is no good in a person who has no kindness" something like that. A Muslim is supposed to be friendly, approachable and cheerful. This sister in law and cousin of mine has no qualities of friendliness in my opinion. Yes I've been told many times that she is by nature very shy. But what I can't understand is why she is that way. What makes people shy? Maybe it's because I'm a 'niqaabi' and she feels intimidated by my being more 'righteous' than her? Maybe it's because she's jealous of me for some reasons that only Allah knows? May Allah reward whoever tries to answer the above questions. Ameen :) Wasalaam

  8. POETRY: Why I Love The Prophet Muhammad (May Allah's Peace And Blessings Be Upon Him) If you ask me, why do I love him, the Prophet Muhammad (May Peace be upon him) - I love him because he cared about us Muslims, and loving him is a condition – If you love Allah, then love the Prophet Muhammad – Allah loved him very much. He was Allah's Final Messenger, and The hearts of many did his mercy touch. His beautiful character makes me admire Him – his trustworthiness and honesty – Even before he became God's Prophet, Disbelievers knew that he was trustworthy. I love the Prophet Muhammad because Of good manners he was the best example. I love how he was patient throughout his life And how his morals were never skeptical. He cared about his nation too, thus he taught Us what we should know about our religion. When given the chance he'd always educate, Blessing us with advice through his companions. As a father and grandfather, the Prophet Muhammad was kind and tender loving. His mercy to the poor, widows and orphans – His good treatment of them is too astounding. His tolerance, even to non-Muslim Neighbors, is also something to be admired. His mercy too was further manifest Through his kind treatment of the slaves he hired. As a leader – he was charismatic, As a warrior – marked with strength and bravery, As a family man – full of mercy, And a husband who treated his wives fairly – As a friend – he was accommodating – Full of cheer, he brought smiles to people's faces – Respectful to the old, and kind towards the young – Mercy was the Prophet Muhammad's basis. I love how he was merciful – and because Of his mercy, he always tried to guide. I love how he struggled to obey Allah, And how he remained patient all through his life. I love how he was able to do so much – So many good deeds, despite his simple life – How he could survive on mere dates and water, And yet stand for long hours when praying at night. I love how he was so thankful to Allah – How he was always ready to sacrifice. I love how his character was dignified – How he was strong and gentle at the same time. I love the patience of Prophet Muhammad – In worshipping Allah, in fasting, and praying – His patience in helping Muslims, and in hard times, And how he was merciful and forgiving. Because of my love for Prophet Muhammad, I try to follow him – and say "you should too" – If you truly love Allah, then love Muhammad – Let your following him make your love more true. O' Allah, help us obey you, and help us Follow Muhammad – in this world and to Heaven – Grant us his companionship in Paradise, And freedom to drink from his blessed fountain. Ameen. Written by Mariam Mababaya POETRY: Some Advice In This Sonnet A few words of advice in this sonnet: Don’t hurt, if you too don’t like to be hurt. When bad deeds return, you might regret it. So watch your deeds, and take care of your words. Always know that from above you’re being watched. On your right and left are angels writing – Collect whatever good deeds you may lack, To please God and meet Him while He’s smiling. Avoid supplications prayed against you, Especially those of righteous Muslims. Beware of everything you see and do – Know that on Judgment Day, you’ll be questioned. Obey Allah’s Rules, and good you shall get. If you displease Allah, yours is regret. Mariam Mababaya
