It’s only a couple of days away.

For the Urdu version of this video, click here.

Think of every single bad deed you’ve done over the past week. Two weeks. One month. Six months. One year.

Sometimes it’s easier to get caught up in the bad we’ve done than it is to strive towards the good we can do. But what if there was an opportunity, with this Islamic new year, to get rid of the bad? To start over? To have a clean slate?

Ashura is coming up this Saturday, October 24th. The Prophet (S) told us that fasting on this day expiates our sins for the entire previous year.
 

Be sure to share the value of Ashura with all of your family and friends- because when a Muslim guides another Muslim to a good deed, he gets the full reward of performing that deed. How many sins do you think you’ll expiate if you’re the reason one other person fasts on Ashura? Now think about 5 people. 10 people. 100 people.

All it takes is one click.

Forward this e-mail and spread the good. Fast on Ashura and start over. Let us take advantage of the Mercy of our Lord and benefit from this blessed day as much as we can. May Allah accept from us all!

Sunni Views regarding Yazeed – Excerpt from Wikipedia Encyclopedia


Mukarram's space

Ibn Kathir

Ibn Kathir, a 14th century Sunni Shafi’i Islamic scholar writes:

Traditions inform us that Yazeed loved worldly vices, would drink, listen to kept the company of boys with no facial hair [1], played drums, kept dogs [9], not a day would go by when he was not in a drunken state [3]

In the defense of Milad.


Mukarram's space

As-Salam-u Alaiykum dear Muslims,

Today, I received a message asking for the references from Qur’an or Prophetic Traditions or the lives of Sahabah about a few ancient and unchallenged faiths of Ahl al-Sunnah wa-l Jama’ah. And the reason for this is the deviation of Ahl al-Sunah wa-l Jamaa’ah from Sunnah and Jamaa’ah.

In old days, no one was to object because we had Islamic education because we had educated scholars who were not only the students or professors of a subject but also the inventors of new subjects that were not known to the world before. Nowadays, we are deprived of educated scholars and those few we have are worthless as we do not knock their doors and ask their helps. Nowadays, we are far away from our books and those who read books are breaking our faith with their statements that are actually out of context. I have talked…

Dialogue between a man and Angel of Death!!!


Sohney Mehrban's Weblog

My father handed me the printout of an e-mail which included a poem. The poem touched my heart and I wanted to share it with everyone. Please read this poem and understand it and try to act on it. I couldn’t find the poet’s name on the printouts, but I’ll try to search for the poet too. The poem is as follows:

It was early in the morning at four,

When death knocked upon a bedroom door,

Who is there? The sleeping one cried.

I’m Malkul Mawt, let me inside.

At once, the man began to shiver,

As one sweating in deadly fever,

He shouted to his sleeping wife,

Don’t let him take away my life.

Please go away, O Angel of Death!

Leave me alone; I’m not ready yet.

My family on me depends,

Give me a chance, O please pretense!

The angel knocked again and again,

Friend! I’ll…

$5000 for Gaza for FREE


Assalāmu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullāhi Wa Barakātuhu

OK, so here is an idea we came up with to send $5000 to Gaza for FREE

Instead of spending our marketing budget the traditional way, we want the ummah to do the marketing for us by telling all their friends and family members on WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter etc… about www.HowToPray.com

and in return we will donate the money to the Gaza Rescue Appeal. It’s that simple…

All Progress is tracked here: www.HowToPray.com/progress
