Q. The Bible says… ‘When Jonah was 3 days and 3 nights in the belly   of  the fish, so shall the son of man, be for 3 days and 3 nights in the   heart of the earth.’ Did Jesus peace be upon him, scientifically fulfill   the sign of Jonah.

(Dr. Zakir): What the sister is referring to, is the verse of the Bible, Gospel of Mathew, Chapter No 12, Verse No. 38 and 40, 

‘When people asked Jesus Christ (peace be upon him)… ‘Show me a sign, show me a miracle’. Jesus Christ (peace be upon him), says… ‘You evil and adulteration’s generation, seeketh after a sign, no sign shall be given to you, but the sign of Jonah. ­­­­­­ For as Jonah was 3 days and 3 nights in the belly of the whale, so shall the son of man be 3 days and 3 nights, in the heart of the earth’ – Sign of Jonah. ­­­­­­

Jesus Christ peace be upon him, puts all his eggs in one basket. ­­­­­­And if you go to the sign of Jonah… the book of Jonah is less than 2 pages, and most of us know. ­­­­­­And if you analyze, that Jonah was 3 days and 3 nights – but Jesus Christ peace be upon him, we know from the Gospels, that he was put on the cross – the alleged crucification.

By late evening, he was brought down from the cross and put in a sepulchre – And on Sunday morning if you see, the stone is moved away, and the sepulchre is completely empty. ­­­­­­So Jesus Christ peace be upon him, is in the tomb, on Friday night.’ ­­­­­­He was there in Saturday morning, one day, one night. ­­­­­­ And he was there Saturday night – so two nights and one day. ­­­­­­And Sunday morning the tomb was empty.

­­­­­­So Jesus Christ peace be upon him, was there for two nights, and one day – It is not 3 days and 3 nights. ­­­­­­Dr. William Campbell gives the reply in his book, that… ‘You know, part of the day can be counted as one day – And if a patient comes to me, who is sick on Saturday night – on Monday morning, and if I ask him… ‘How long are you sick for ? ’ ­­­­­­He will say… ‘ 3 days.’ ­­­­­­I agree with you – Concordance approach, I agree – I am very generous. ­­­­­­

You say part of the day, is full day – I agree with you. ­­­­­­So Saturday night, part of the day – one day. ­­­­­­Sunday, part of the day, full day – one – good. ­­­­­­Monday part of the day full day – no problem. ­­­­­­If patient says… ‘3 days’ – No objection. ­­­­­­ But no patient will ever say… ‘3 days and 3 nights.’ ­­­­­­I challenge.

I have Alhamdulillah, met various patients – I have not come across a single patient, including Christian missionaries, who have ever told to me – who were sick in the night, day before yesterday, saying… ‘I am sick for 3 days, 3 nights.’ ­­­­­­So Jesus Christ peace be upon him, did not say… ‘3 days’ – Jesus Christ peace be upon him said… ‘3 days and 3 nights.’ ­­­­­­So it is a mathematical error – Scientifically, Jesus Christ peace be upon him, did not prove. ­­­­­­And further more, the prophecy says… ‘As Jonah was, so shall the son of man be.’ ­­­­­­Jonah was – How? ­­­­­­How was Jonah in the belly of the Whale?… Belly of the fish…

Jesus pbuh

Dead or alive? ­­­­­­Alive – When he was thrown over board, he was alive. ­­­­­­In the belly of the whale, he goes around the ocean, dead or alive? – Alive. He prays to Almighty God… dead or alive ? – Alive! ­­­­­­He is vomited out on the seashore – Dead of alive? ­­­­­­Alive, alive, alive, alive. ­­­­­­

When I ask the Christians… ‘How was Jesus Christ peace be upon him, in the sepulchre… in the tomb – Dead of alive?’ ­­­­­­They tell me… ‘Dead.’ If he is dead, he has not fulfilled the sign. ­­­­­­You can refer to my video cassette ‘Was Jesus Christ peace be upon him really crucified ?’ – I have proved that Jesus Christ peace be upon him was not crucified. ­­­­­­As the Qur’an says in Surah Nisa, Chapter 4, Verse No. 157… (Arabic) …

‘They did not kill him, neither did they crucify him – It was only made to appear so.’ ­­­­­­

In the name of Allah, the most compassionate, the most merciful.

The word Muhabbat (love) is derived from the Arabic word “Hubb” which means seed; a seed that every human being has in heart. It is the function of heart just like vision is the function of the eyes. 
Love is the most beautiful feeling a human heart can experience. Allah subhana-wa-taala Himself has explained this emotion in Quran very beautifully and Prophet Muhammad (saw) was the most loving and romantic person in the whole world.

Allah subhana-wa-taala describes the person whom He loves in the most beautiful ways as :

– the Muhsineen [Those who do good (to others)]

– the Tawwabeen [Those who turn to rightfulness and recourse much to Him and His Guidance],

– the Mutahhareen [Those who keep their bodies free from filth, minds distant from dirty thoughts and conduct clean from unseemly acts],

– the Muttaqeen [Those who guard themselves against evil],

– the Sabireen [Those who  have the capacity to endure hardship],

– the Mutawakkileen [Those who put their trust in Allah and His Laws],

– the Muqsiteen [Those who act equitably and justly]

The love Humans hold for others is not as pure and grand like the love Allah holds for his slaves. A man loves the materials of this Duniya and among them, the most lovable are the persons’ spouse. And this relationship should be filled with immense love and respect. It is not a sin to be Romantic in Islam instead it is promoted and Prophet Muhammad (saw) himself exemplified it.

In many hadith and narrations of Aisha(RA) we can sum up how well Prophet (peace be upon him) was with his wives and especially Aasha(RA).

Here we compile some beautiful and romantic events from our beloved Prophet Muhammad (saw) life and what we learn from those events.

---Prophet Muhammad Pbuh---
—Prophet Muhammad Pbuh—

1. Aisha and the Prophet Muhammad (saw) would use code language with each other denoting their love. She asked the Prophet (saw) how he would describe his love for her. The Prophet Muhammad (saw) answered, saying: “Like a strong binding knot.” The more you tug, the stronger it gets, in other words.

Every so often ‘Aisha would playfully ask, “How is the knot?” The Prophet (saw) would answer, “As strong as the first day (you asked).”

This shows that a marriage need not be strict and boring in nature. One should promote healthy playfulness with honor and respect. A loving smile and sweet little secrets never hurt anyone. It is for my brothers and sisters in Islam to be very humble and caring with their spouses.

2. The Prophet Muhammad salallahu alaihi wasallam once said to Sayyidah Aisha Radi Allahu anha: “I know well when you are pleased or angry with me. Aisha replied: How you know that? He said: When you are pleased with me you swear by saying “By the God of Mohammad (saw)” but when you are angry you swear by saying “By the God of Ibrahim”. She said: You are right, I don’t mention your name.”

Knowing the feelings and emotions of one’s spouse is very important. It helps a person a great deal when the situation is not good and also when there is discord. It helps to understand the other person better and be kind in the best possible way. A person should be sensitive towards his spouse’s feelings and not try to hurt them in indifference.

3. Once during a journey, Safiyyah – the wife of Allaah’s Messenger (may Allaah be pleased with her) was crying because she had been made to ride a slow camel. The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) didn’t tell her she was being unreasonable. Instead, he wiped her tears, comforted her, and even tried to find her another camel for her.

Here we see that even though the reason for the distress of our mother Safiyyah(Ra) was not that grievous but the Prophet (saw) did not act indifferently or rudely or even laughed at it. He simply comforted his wife and tried to get her what she wanted. 

4. Prophet Muhammad salallahu alaihi wasallam would drink from the place where Aisha(Ra) would drink. If there was meat,  he(saw) would take the bite from the place where Aishas(Ra) lips had touched. Thus enjoying the union of spouses. How many of you do that?

5. The Prophet Muhammad salallahu alaihi wasallam said : If you spend an amount you will be rewarded for it, -even when you lift the morsel to your wife’s mouth.”

It simply means that your wives are your responsibilities and even a little goodness you do towards her is an act of ibadah and you will be rewarded for it. By this, your wife will feel security and love and comfort.

6. The Prophet Muhammad salallahu alaihi wasallam would call his wife ‘Humairā’’ out of love.  Linguistically it means the little reddish one, but the scholars state that in reality, it refers to someone who is so fair that due to the sun they get a reddish tan.  This was the reason why the Prophet salallahu alaihi wasallam called her Humairaa’.

Messenger would call his wife Aa’isha by the nickname ‘Aa’ish’ just to joke with her

It is beyond any doubt that Prophet Muhammad (saw) would call his wives with the most beautiful names. Doing so makes the bond stronger and places the seeds of great love among the hearts of spouses. Your spouse will love it and love you more. Isn’t that the love we all crave for?

7. Sayyiduna Ibn Abbās radiallahu anhu said: “As my wife adorns herself for me, I adorn myself for her. I do not want to take all of my rights from her so that she will not take all of her rights from me because of Allah, the Exalted, stated the following: “And women shall have rights similar to the rights against them.” (Qur῾ān 2:228.)[11]

be like prophet muhammad pbuh

He (saw) would look good for his wives, it is reported that he (saw) would do miswaak after coming home so that no bad odor comes from him and wouldn’t repulse his wives from him. How many of us do that? We simply keep the ugliest of the pajamas to wear at homes and all the good clothing are kept for outside occasions!

8. Anas ibn Malik narrates, “I saw the Prophet Muhammad (salla Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam), making for her (Safiya) a kind of cushion with his cloak behind him (on his camel). He then sat beside his camel and put his knee for Safiya to put her foot on, in order to ride (on the camel).” [Sahih Al-Bukhari]

What we learn from this is that our wives are not our maids but our better halves and must be treated like queens. If you are not to treat her like that then who would. Allah has chosen you to respect and treat her likewise and you ought to do so. Same applies with the women, they are responsible to make their husbands feel grand rather than someone with no importance. If our prophet didn’t shy away from treating his wives in a respectable and honorable manner than who are we to neglect it!

9. Aa’isha (may Allah be pleased with her) narrates in Sahih Al Bukhari V2/B 15/no.70]:

It was the day of ‘Id, and the Black people were playing with shields and spears, so either I requested the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) or he asked me whether I would like to see the display. I replied in the affirmative. Then the Prophet (peace be upon him) made me stand behind him and my cheek was touching his cheek and he was saying, “Carry on! O Bani Arfida,” till I got tired.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) asked me, “Are you satisfied (Is that sufficient for you)?” I replied in the affirmative and he told me to leave. 

It simply means respecting the wishes of one’s spouse and trying to fulfill them just to see them happy.

10. Once the prophet Muhammad (salla Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) was sitting in a room with Aisha and fixing his shoes. It was very warm, and Aisha looked to his blessed forehead and noticed that there were beads of sweat on it. She became overwhelmed by the majesty of that sight was staring at him long enough for him to notice.

He said, “What’s the matter?” She replied, “If Abu Bukair Al-Huthali, the poet, saw you, he would know that his poem was written for you.” 

The Prophet (sallaAllahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) asked, “What did he say?” She replied, “Abu Bukair said that if you looked to the majesty of the moon, it twinkles and lights up the world for everybody to see.” 

So the Prophet Muhammad (salla Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) got up, walked to Aisha, kissed her between the eyes, and said, “Wallahi ya Aisha, you are like that to me and more.”

Express your love! It is a human nature to want to be pampered and told how he is loved. Tell your spouse now! Tell them you love them. How long has it been that you didn’t express your love to your spouse? Tell them what they mean to you. Wallahi brothers and sisters this will uplift your relationship and add more romance and love in your lives. And yes little fewer differences.  

11. The Prophet Muhammad (salallahu alaihi wasallam) described the one who discloses his wife’s affairs to others as amongst the worst of people.

Do not ever speak about your wife’s/husbands private matters in public. It is between you two and is not something the whole world should know. And the little others know about your personal matters the better. You will find peace. Your wife is for you and you are for your wife, there should not be anyone in between.

12. It was narrated from Zaynab bint Abi Salamah that Umm Salamah said: “I got my menses when I was lying with the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) under a single woolen sheet. I slipped away and put on the clothes I usually wore for menstruation. The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said to me, ‘Have you got your menses?’ I said, ‘Yes.’ Then he called me and made me lie with him under the same sheet.”

She said: And she told me that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to kiss her when he was fasting, and the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and I used to do ghusl to cleanse ourselves from janaabah from one vessel.(Narrated by al-Bukhari, 316; Muslim, 296)

Your wife does need more love and care especially when she is menstruating or sick. You don’t separate and be indifferent towards her on those times rather make her feel comfortable and loved. Same applies to women, if your husband is sick, make him feel loved and comfortable. Take care of him and be dutiful towards him. Always keep smiling too.

There are numerous other events and narrations that shows us how beautifully our Prophet handled his relationship with his wives and being a Muslim we should follow his Sunnah in our relationships too. 

May Allah guide us and fill our lives with much love and romance. 

Charity: Spend in the cause of ALLAH



Messenger of Allah [pbuh] said:


❝The servant says: ‘My Wealth! My Wealth!’ While he only possesses from his wealth three things, that which he has eaten and so it is consumed, or that which he has worn [from garment] and it is worn out, and that which he has given [in sadaqah] and so he has stored it away [i.e. for his hereafter].❞
[Sahih Muslim, 2958 a]

Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said,

❝There is no right for the son of adam except in these (four) things: A house to live in, a cloth to cover therewith his private parts, bread and water.❞

Messenger of Allah [pbuh] said:

Allah (mighty and sublime be He) said: Spend (on charity), O son of Adam, and I shall spend on you. 
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim]


Aisha (ra) would perfume her coins in musk before giving them in charity. When asked why she did this, she explained that the charity reaches Allah (swt) before it ever touches the hand of the person in need.

She gave away so much although wealth in the home of the Prophet (saw) was not abundant. And she gave it in a way that both honoured the recipient and showed her appreciation for the everlasting reward she expected from Allah (swt).

‘Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) reported:
Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) had slaughtered a sheep and distributed major portions of its meat. Then he (ﷺ) asked, “Is there anything left?” She replied, “Nothing, except the shoulder.” Thereupon he said, “All of it is left except its shoulder.”

❝When you offer any Sadaqah to a beggar, do it with humility and respect, for what you are offering is an offer to Allaah.❞
— Abu Bakr Siddique (ra)

❝Never will you attain the good [reward] until you spend [in the way of Allah] from that which you love. And whatever you spend – indeed, Allah is Knowing of it❞ {Surat ‘Āli `Imrān, 3:92}


❝…And whatever you spend of good [i.e., wealth, property, resources, time, effort etc.] – it will be fully repaid to you, and you will not be wronged.❞ {Surat Al-Baqarah, 2:272}

Hijaab should be loose not tight

Hijaab should be loose, not tight so that it describes any part of the body. 

The purpose of clothing is to prevent fitnah (temptation), and this can only be achieved if clothes are wide and loose (hijaab). Tight clothes, even if they conceal the colour of the skin, still describe the size and shape of the body or part of it, and create a vivid image in the minds of men. The corruption or invitation to corruption that is inherent in that is quite obvious. So the clothes must be wide.

Usaamah ibn Zayd said: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) gave me a thick Egyptian garment that was one of the gifts given to him by Duhyat al-Kalbi, and I gave it to my wife to wear. He said, ‘Why do I not see you wearing that Egyptian garment?’ I said, ‘I gave it to my wife to wear.’ He said, ‘Tell her to wear a gown underneath it, for I am afraid that it may describe the size of her bones.’”

Hijaab Should be loose
Hijab Should be loose

(Narrated by al-Diyaa’ al-Maqdisi in al-Ahaadeeth al-Mukhtaarah, 1/442, and by Ahmad and al-Bayhaqi, with a hasan isnaad).

Highlighting the choice of Hijaab being a legitimate right of women, politically empowers them and exposes the falsehood being propagated by the secular extremists that the hijaab degrades women and is forced upon them.

It is not the cloth that opress the woman, it is the ignorance about Islam!

A sister wrote once : “I watched a video lately about … how to tie a Hijaab!!!!!

YES! Now there is an “art” of tying the Hijaab, and it’s not al Hijaab al shar’i (the Islamic Hijaab) of course, but this is a “stylish” Hijab which shaytan beautify it in front of them and whispered them to wear it!!
It comes with different colors and looks! Yes!

There are different ways to wear this “Hijaab”:

There is one with layers, one with big flower(s) one the side, one with very attractive colors, one with accessories, one which looks like camel hump, one which sparkles, one with golden and silver design, etc, …. and many many others which take much time to be tied. Unfortunately, many sisters spend hours watching videos to learn the “proper” steps of tying this kind of “Hijab”!! Some others even go to hair stylish (in some Arabic countries) to tie these scarves (in “special” occasions) and pay money for that!


The funny thing is that these “Hijabs” attract attention more than the natural uncover hair does!!! But is this the Hijab Allah ordered Muslimat to wear in Qur’an?!!! Does this “Hijab” please Allah? Of course not!!! Why does Allah order Muslimat to wear Hijab: to attract eyes or to protect her from them?! If the scarf the Muslimah wears isn’t loose enough and does not cover her arms and chest so what will be the purpose of wearing it?!! THINK!

Hijaab will close only for you the doors of Hell….

if you wear Hijaab wear it properly and if you don’t then I’m not saying sisters who don’t wear hijaab is going to hell as that will be very ignorant statement, and it is obligatory on our sisters to wear it and we make dua for the sisters struggling instead of looking down at them. This article is just a support to those who are being oppressed and mocked at for wearing the hijab. Some sisters wear hijaab and don’t pray, some don’t wear hijaab but pray and some sisters wear the hijab and pray, so aim to wear the hijaab and pray always.

May Allah Subhan wa ta’ala bless all our sisters, you guys are the back bone of this Ummah so hold tight to the rope of Allah Subhan wa ta’ala…
?Aameen ya Allah?



When you are blessed with your husband or treat him like a king, treat your wife like a Queen (life won’t give second chance). Life won’t give you chance to get back your wife, or your husband. Think before you do. It takes sincere effort from both side equally. A one sided relationship never survives.

It was their anniversary, and Aisha was waiting for her husband Ahmed to show up.

  • Things had changed since their marriage, the once cute couple couldn’t-live-without-each-other had turned bitter.
life won't give second chance to you

  • Aisha was waiting to see if Ahmed remembered it was their anniversary!
  • Just as the door bell rang she ran to find her husband wet and smiling with a bunch of flowers in his hand.
  • The two started re-living the old days. Sharing old beautiful memories. And it was raining outside! It was perfect.

  • But the moment paused when the phone in the bedroom rang.
  • Aisha went to pick it up and it was a man. “Hello ma’am I’m calling from the police station. Is this Mr Ahmed Hasan’s number?” “Yes it is!”
  • “I’m sorry ma’am; but there was an accident and a man died.
  • We got this number from his wallet; we need you to come and identify his body.”
  • Aisha’s heart sank.!!! She was shocked!
  • But my husband is here with me?”
  • “Sorry ma’am, but the incident took place at 2 pm, when he was boarding the train.”
  • Aisha was about to lose her conscience.
  • How could this happen??
  • She ran into the other room.
  • He was not there. It was true! He had left her for good!!
  • She rolled on the floor in pain. She lost her chance Forever!
  • Suddenly there was a noise from the bathroom, the door opened and Ahmed came out and said “Darling, I forgot to tell you my wallet got stolen today”.

  • So for Allaah’s sake let’s start making amendments…
  • To parents
  • To siblings
  • To friends
  • And many more other relationships..

No one is promised tomorrow. Have a wonderful Life with no regrets! (life won’t give second chance).

I want a husband/wife who will get mad at me when I miss a prayer.
I want a husband/wife who will pour cold water on me when I don’t get up for Fajr Salah.

I want a husband/wife who will draw me closer to Allah, who will get upset when I lie, cheat and do bad things and anything wrong.
I want a husband/wife who will call me after every Maghrib Salah to read Qur’an together.

I want a husband/wife who will wake me up in the middle of the night for us to pray together and ask forgiveness from Allah.
In’ Shaa’ Allah… Ameen.



Sadaqah (voluntary charity) is a virtuous deed in Islam. In fact, it is considered as a proof of one’s eeman (faith). The Prophet (s.a.w.s.) sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said in the following authentic hadeeth:

Abu Malik al-Ashari (r.a.) (radhi Allahu anhu) narrated that Allah’s Messenger (s.a.w.s.) said: “Cleanliness is half of faith. Alhamdulillah (Praise be to Allah) fills the scale. Subhan Allah (Glory be to Allah) and Alhamdulillah (Praise be to Allah) fill up what is between the heavens and the earth. Prayer is a light. Charity is proof (of one’s faith).

Charity Sadaqah

Endurance is a brightness and the Qur‘an is a proof on your behalf or against you. All men go out early in the morning and sell themselves, thereby setting themselves free or destroying themselves.” (Muslim, 432)

The more we give sadaqah the more we increase our eeman and thus, expect Allah’s rewards both in this world and in the life hereafter. Giving charity out of our wealth does not decrease our wealth but instead Allah (s.w.t.) increases it:

“Allah will deprive usury of all blessing, but will give increase for deeds of charity: for He loves not creatures ungrateful and sinner.” (Qur‘an, 2: 276)
“That which you give in usury for increase through the property of (other) people, will have no increase with Allah: but that which you give for charity, seeking the Countenance of Allah, (will increase); it is those who will get a recompense multiplied.” (Qur‘an, 30:39)

Abu Hurairah (r.a.) reported Allah’s Messenger (s.a.w.s.) as saying: “Charity does not in any way decrease the wealth and the servant who forgives, Allah adds to his respect; and the one who shows humility, Allah elevates him in the estimation (of the people).” (Muslim Vol. 4, Hadith 6264)

Sadaqah is not restricted to giving part of our wealth or material possessions or any special deed of righteousness. Islam considers all good deeds as sadaqah that increase our eeman:


Abu Musa narrated that the Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “Every Muslim has to give in sadaqah (charity).” The people asked, “O Allah’s Messenger (s.a.w.s.)! If someone has nothing to give, what will he do?” He said, “He should work with his hands and benefit himself and also give in charity (from what he earns).” The people further asked, “If he cannot do even that?” He replied, “Then he should help the needy who appeal for help.”


Then the people asked, “If he cannot do that?” He replied, “Then he should perform all that is good and keep away from all that is evil and this will be regarded as charitable deeds.” (Bukhari Vol. 2, Hadith 524)

The Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.) said: “To smile in the company of your brother is charity. To command to do good deeds and to prevent others from doing evil is charity. To guide a person in a place where he can not get astray is charity. To remove troublesome things like thorns and bones from the road is charity. To pour water from your jug into the jug of your brother is charity. To guide a person with defective vision is charity for you.” (Bukhari)

Charity Sadaqah
Charity Sadaqah

Since sadaqah is not limited to giving of money or part of our wealth, every Muslim can therefore earn rewards from Allah. Sadaqah is an easy way to increase our eeman. Every Muslim whether poor or wealthy can give sadaqah at all times. The Prophet (s.a.w.s.) tells us that dhikr (remembrance of Allah) is a form of sadaqah. We read in the following Ahadeeth:

Abu Hurairah narrated that “Abu Dharr said to the Messenger of Allah, ‘The wealthy people have all the rewards; they pray as we pray; they fast as we fast; and they have surplus wealth which they give in charity; but we have no wealth which we may give in charity.’

Charity Sadaqah

Allah’s Messenger (s.a.w.s.) said: ‘Abu Dharr, should I not teach you phrases by which you acquire the rank of those who excel you? No one can acquire your rank except one who acts like you.’ He said, Why not, Allah’s Messenger (s.a.w.s.)?

He said: ‘Exalt Allah say: “Allahu Akbar” (Allah is Most Great) after each prayer thirty-three times; and praise Him say: “Alhamdulillah” (Praise be to Allah) thirty-three times; and glorify Him say: “Subhan Allah” (Glory be to Allah) thirty-three times; and end it by saying, “La ilâha illallâhu wahdahu la shareeka lahu, lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu yuhyi wa yomeetu wa Huwa ‘ala kulli shai’in Qadeer.” ( There is no god but Allah alone, He has no partner, to Him belongs the Kingdom, to Him praise is due and He has power over everything.) Your sins will be forgiven, even if they are like the foam of the sea.’” (Abu Dawud 1499)

Charity Sadaqah

Abu Dharr narrated that Allah’s Messenger (s.a.w.s.) said, “In the morning charity is due from every bone in the body of every one of you. Every utterance of Allah’s glorification is an act of charity. Every utterance of praise of Him is an act of charity; every utterance of profession of His Oneness is an act of charity; every utterance of profession of His Greatness is an act of charity; enjoining good is an act of charity; forbidding what is disreputable is an act of charity; and two rak‘ahs which one prays in the forenoon will suffice.” (Muslim 1557)

For our own success, we should spend time, money and efforts in giving sadaqah for the pleasure of Allah as the rewards of sadaqah is nothing but success, especially in the Hereafter:

“The likeness of those who spend for Allah’s sake is as the likeness of a grain of corn, it grows seven ears every single ear has a hundred grains, and Allah multiplies (increases the reward of) for whom He wills, and Allah is sufficient for His creatures’ needs, All-Knower).” (Qur’an, 2:261)
“Those who (in charity) spend of their goods by night and by day, in secret and in public have their reward with their Rabb (only God and Sustainer). On them shall be no fear nor shall they grieve.” (Qur‘an, 2:274)
“…that which you give for charity, seeking the Countenance of Allah, (will increase); it is those who will get a recompense multiplied.” (Qur’an, 30:39)

“Only those who believe in Our Signs, who when they are recited to them fall down in adoration, and celebrate the praises of their Rabb (only God and Sustainer), nor are they (ever) puffed up with pride. They forsake their beds of sleep, the while they call on their Rabb (only God and Sustainer), in Fear and Hope. And they spend (in charity) out of the sustenance which We have bestowed on them.


Now no person knows what delights of the eye are kept hidden (in reserve) for them — as a reward for their (good) Deeds. Is then the man who believes no better than the man who is rebellious and wicked? Not equal are they. For those who believe and do righteous deeds are Gardens as hospitable Homes, for their (good) deeds.” (Qur‘an, 32:15-19)

“For Muslim men and women, for believing men and women for devout men and women for true men and women, for men and women who are patient and constant, for men and women who humble themselves, for men and women who give in charity, for men and women who fast, for men and women who guard their chastity, and for men and women who engage much in Allah’s remembrance for them has Allah prepared forgiveness and great reward.” (Qur’an, 33:35)

Qais ibn Abu Hazim narrated that…. Allah’s Messenger (s.a.w.s.) said, “A Muslim is rewarded (in the Hereafter) for whatever he spends except for something that he spends on building.” (Bukhari, Vol. 7, Hadith 576)

Mu‘aadh bin Jabal (r.a.) related from the Prophet (s.a.w.s.) “Sadaqah extinguishes sin as water extinguishes fire.” (Ahmad, Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah)

The Prophet (s.a.w.s.) also said: “The believer’s shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his Sadaqah.” (Ahmad)

To be able to enjoy Allah’s tremendous rewards for every sadaqah that we give, we need to observe the following teachings:

1. Sadaqah must be done sincerely for the pleasure of Allah and not out of riya‘ (show off) to gain praise or recognition from others:

“O you who believe! Do not render vain your charity by reminders of your generosity or by injury, like him who spends his wealth to be seen of men and he does not believe in Allah nor in the last Day.” (Qur’an, 2: 264)

Sa’d ibn Abu Waqqas narrated that Allah’s Messenger (s.a.w.s.) said, “…whatever you spend (for Allah’s sake) you will be rewarded for it, even for a morsel of food which you may put in the mouth of your wife.” (Bukhari, Vol. 8, Hadith 725; Vol. 1, Hadith 53)

2. It is better to conceal what we give or do as sadaqah:

“And whatever you spend in charity or whatever vow you make, be sure Allah knows it all. But the wrongdoers have no helpers. If you disclose (acts of) charity, even so it is well, but if you conceal them and make them reach those (really) in need, that is best for you. It will remove from you some of your (stains of) evil. And Allah is well acquainted with what you do.” (Qur‘an, 2:270-271)

Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.s.) said, “Seven people will be shaded by Allah under His shade on the day when there will be no shade except His. They are:

  • 1. a just ruler,
  • 2. a youth who grew up in the worship of Allah,
  • 3. a man whose heart is attached to the mosque,
  • 4. two men who love each other for Allah’s sake, meeting for that and parting for that.
  • 5. a man who is called by a woman of beauty and position but he says, “I fear Allah”,
  • 6. a man who gives in charity and hides it, such that his left hand does not know what his right hand gives in charity, and
  • 7. a man who remembered Allah in private and so his eyes shed tears.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari (Eng. translation) vol. 2, hadeeth no. 504)

3. Sadaqah must be from halal (lawful) source:

Abu Hurairah (r.a.) narrated that Allah’s Messenger (s.a.w.s.) said, “If one gives in charity what equals one date-fruit from the honestly earned money and Allah accepts only the honestly earned money Allah takes it in His Right (hand). And then, enlarges its reward for that person (who has given it), as anyone of you brings up his baby horse, so much so that it becomes as big as a mountain.” (Bukhari, Vol. 2, Hadith 491)

4. Begin charity with your dependents:

Hakim ibn Hizam narrated that the Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said: “The upper hand is better than the lower hand, (i.e., he who gives charity is better than him who takes it). One should start giving first to his dependents. And the best object of charity is that which is given by a wealthy person (from the money which is left after his expenses.) And whoever abstains from asking others for some financial help, Allah will give him and save him from asking others, Allah will make him self-sufficient.” (Bukhari, Vol. 2, Hadith 508)

Give Sadaqah

Abu Umamah (r.a.) narrated that Allah’s Messenger said: “O son of Adam, it is better for you if you spend your surplus (wealth), but if you withhold it, it is evil for you. There is (however) no reproach for you (if you withhold means necessary) for a living. And begin (charity) with your dependents; and the upper hand is better than the lower hand.” (Muslim, 2256)

5. Not to delay giving of sadaqah nor show lethargy or negligence in giving sadaqah:

And spend something (in charity) out of the substance which We have bestowed on you, before death should come to any of you and he should say, “O my Rabb (only God and Sustainer)! Why do you not give me respite for a little while? I should then have given (largely) in charity, and I should have been one of the doers of good.” (Qur’an, 63:10)

Haritha ibn Wahb narrated that he heard the Prophet (s.a.w.s.) saying, “O people! Give in charity as a time will come upon you when a person will wander about with his object of charity and will not find anybody to accept it, and anyone (who will be requested to take it) will say, “If you had brought it yesterday, I would have taken it, but today I am not in need of it.” (Bukhari Vol. 2, Hadith 492)


Abu Hurairah (r.a.) narrated that a man came to the Prophet (s.a.w.s.) and asked, “O Allah’s Messenger which charity is the most superior in reward?” He replied, “The charity which you practice while you are healthy, niggardly and afraid of poverty and wish to become wealthy. Do not delay it to the time of approaching death and then say, ‘Give so much to such and such, and so much to such and such.’ (And it has already belonged to such and such (his heirs).” (Bukhari Vol. 2, Hadith 500)

“Do not show lethargy or negligence in giving alms and charity till your last breath.” (Bukhari and Muslim)

6. Do not count the sadaqah you give:

“Spend in charity and do not keep count for then Allah will also keep count in giving you provision.” (Bukhari and Muslim)

7. Seek only the desire to see Allah, which is the supreme success in Paradise. Do not expect favor or reward from any person for the sadaqah you give:

“Those who spend their wealth for increase in self-purification, and have in their minds no favor from anyone for which a reward is expected in return, but only the desire to seek for the Countenance of their Creator Most High; and soon will they attain (complete) satisfaction.” (Qur’an, 92:18-21)

Charity Sadaqah
Charity Sadaqah

From the above virtuous teachings, we can conclude that indeed, Islam opens for us many ways of increasing our eeman and good deeds through sadaqah. We can perform easy good deeds like smiling and dhikr (remembrance of Allah), which we can do at anytime and get rewards. The rich among us can earn more rewards if we give part of our wealth to the poor members of our relatives, friends, neighbors and the society at large.

If we have the ability to extend sadaqah especially to other poor Muslims outside our community or country then we must extend our help. Another virtuous way of giving sadaqah is by supporting individuals and groups who are doing Da‘wah (inviting people to Islam or the Truth) for the pleasure of Allah the Almighty. Let us take inspiration from the following Qur‘anic ayah:

“And he who brings the Truth and he who confirms (and supports) it — such are the men who do right. They shall have all that they wish for, with their Rabb (Only God, Cherisher and Sustainer). Such is the reward of those who do good: so that Allah will remit from them (even) the worst in their deeds and give them their reward according to the best of what they have done.” (Qur’an 39:33-35)

Let us hasten to give sadaqah for life in this world is short and temporary while the world in the Hereafter is everlasting. We never know when death has been decreed for us. Today we live and we never know how long we will enjoy the pleasure of this world. But one thing is certain: life in this world is nothing compared to the everlasting life in the Hereafter. Allah (s.w.t.) tells us:

“Nothing is the life of this world but play and amusement, but best is the Home in the Hereafter, for those who are righteous, will you not then understand?” (Qur’an, 6:32)

Give Sadaqah to poor

“Allah does enlarge, or grant by (strict) measure, the sustenance (which He gives) to whom so He pleases — (the worldly) rejoice in the life of this world. But the life of this world is but little comfort compared to the Hereafter.” (Qur’an, 13:26)

Let us prepare ourselves for the everlasting world to come. Let us be among those who will earn Allah’s rewards in Jannah (the Garden of Bliss or Paradise) through giving sadaqah in many ways. Let us continue earning Allah’s rewards of our good deeds by giving sadaqah that continues to benefit others.

Let us think of giving sadaqah to support Islamic projects like building of mosques, Islamic schools, Islamic libraries, orphanage and da‘wah centers. If Allah has blessed us with wealth, let us not delay to build any or all of the said Islamic projects for the sole pleasure of Allah. If we do so, we will certainly attain the rewards of doing good deeds continuously even after we die. Let us be inspired to give sadaqah with the following authentic hadeeth:

Abu Hurairah (r.a.) narrated that Allah’s Messenger (s.a.w.s.) said: “Verily what a believer continues to receive (in the form of reward) for his action and his virtues after his death is the knowledge which he acquired and then disseminated; the pious son that he left behind him; or a copy of the Qur’an which he left as a legacy; or the mosques that he had built; or the inn that he had built for the wayfarers; or the canal that he caused to flow, or a sadaqah which he gave out of his property in the state when he was healthy and alive. (These are the acts of goodness the reward of which) reaches him even after his death.” (Tirmidhi, 254; Ibn Majah and Bayhaqi)

For those who are wealthy but miser or negligent in giving sadaqah may they take admonitions from the following words of Allah and His Messenger (s.a.w.s.):

So he who gives (in charity) and fears (Allah), and (in all sincerity) testifies to the Best, We will indeed make smooth for him the path to Ease. But he who is a greedy miser and thinks himself self-sufficient, and gives the lie to the Best, — We will indeed make smooth for him the Path of Misery; nor will his wealth profit him when he falls headlong (into the Pit).

Verily We take upon Us to guide, and verily unto Us (belong) the End and the Beginning. Therefore do I warn you of a Fire blazing fiercely; none shall burn therein but those most unfortunate ones who give the lie to Truth and turn their backs. But those most devoted to Allah shall be removed far from it. (Qur’an, 92:4-17)


Abu Hurairah (r.a.) narrated that the Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “The example of a miser and the one who gives in charity, is like the example of two men wearing iron cloaks so tightly that their arms are raised forcibly towards their collar-bones. So, whenever a charitable person wants to give in charity, his cloak spreads over his body so much so that it wipes out his traces.

But whenever the miser wants to give in charity, the rings (of the iron cloak) come closer to each other and press over his body and his hands get connected to his collar-bones. Abu Huraira heard the Prophet (s.a.w.s.) saying, “The miser then tries to widen it but in vain.” (Bukhari, Vol. 4, Hadith 166; also see Vol. 2, Hadith 523)

Abu Hurairah (r.a.) narrated that the Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “Every day two angels come down from Heaven and one of them says, ‘O Allah! Compensate every person who spends in Your cause’, and the other (angel) says, ‘O Allah! Destroy every miser.’” (Bukhari, Vol. 2, Hadith 522)

Abu Dharr (r.a.) narrated that… Allah’s Messenger (s.a.w.s.) said, “Those who have much wealth (in this world) will be the least rewarded (in the Hereafter) except those who do like this and like this (i.e., spend their money in charity).” (Bukhari, Vol. 8, Hadith 285)

Abu Bakr As-Siddiq (r.a.) narrated that Allah’s Messenger (s.a.w.s.) said, “A crafty one, a miser, and one who keeps reminding people of what he has given, will not enter Paradise.” (Tirmidhi, 1873)


May Allah the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful give us opportunities to do many ways of giving sadaqah for His pleasure and reward us best life, especially in the Hereafter. May we spend our lives, time, money and efforts or everything in us to do deeds that Allah accepts as forms of sadaqah solely for His Sake. May our Rabb save us from the Hell-Fire by protecting us from being miser.

May Allah Forgive our sins and help us, Guide us and Protect us from evil do ers, Negativity, Shaitaan and all evil forces. May ALLAH grant us all Highest level of Jannah and Make our children our Sadqa Jaria and make us our parents and elders Sadaqa Jaria. May Allah forgive any mistakes i did writing this note.

Quran vs. Music: 12 Simple Truths to Ponder

Music is a big part of our lives. It is a social trend, ever growing and popular worldwide.

Quran vs Music:
No doubt, you get constantly bombarded by music of all types – at shopping malls, high streets and open markets; jingles playing back-to-back on the radio, TV channels and the internet.

Nowadays, music also plays an explicit role in many educational settings and workplaces. If you are faced with such circumstantial contact with music, it could be a source of never-ending worry and stress. For many, however, especially the youth it could be a deliberate choice – living with music as nourishment and balm for the mind, body and soul.

Revealed: The Secrets our Clients Used to Earn $3 Billion

It may be perceived as a harmless activity and a source of inner peace, relaxation, creativity and inspiration. After all if it doesn’t stop you from praying, fasting and performing good deeds, what is the big deal… right?

A Case of Parallels

I look back to a learning session a few years back. Our teacher explained that Qur’an and music can never thrive harmoniously in the heart of a believer. I struggled with this simple truth for many months afterwards. And it was such a big deal for me.

Although I was learning to be a good Muslim, I continued feeding my desire albeit a negative one. This had grave consequences on my thoughts, acts of worship and lifestyle in general. I tried to think of a way to find a middle point with this seemingly parallel case. You could be faced with similar desires and inner battle right now.

‘Music or Quran?’

quran and music
Music & Quran

The Noble Qur’an needs no introduction. It is a mercy, guide and protection for mankind. It is also a powerful reminder, miracle and divine revelation. As the great scholar Ibn Qayyim said, “The Qur’an is all about tawheed”. And nothing should rank higher in terms of priority for the Muslim than upholding tawheed.

Music on the other hand is all about everything but tawheed. While you may still argue about the many benefits of music, I present you with 12 simple truths to ponder.

1. Origin

Qur’an: Speech of Allah .
Music: Created, reproduced and distributed by humans.

2. Theme

Quran: Tawheed (Oneness of Allah ), Aqeedah (creed), issues related to worship, eternal gains.
Music: The most common is lowly desires and worldly gains .

3. Benefit

Qur’an: 100% beneficial at all times, whether its being recited, listened to or pondered upon.
Music: Slight benefit for certain types and at certain times e.g., soothing music to calm down, motivational lyrics, etc.

4. Content

Quran: Related to success in this world and hereafter; also related to virtuous character, good deeds and worship.
Music: Related to acquiring success in this world only; also related to corrupt character, alcohol, drugs, carnal desires and suicide.

5. Calling

Quran: Invites to the sunnah, obedience, worship, guidance, good character, forgiveness, paradise.
Music: To a large extent, invites to sin and all things leading to possible sin (lowly desires, wealth, power, disbelief, nudity).

6. Goal

Quran: Remembrance of Allah .
Music: Distraction from remembrance of Allah .

7. Production and Replication

Quran: Has never been and cannot be produced. Allah  challenged mankind in various verses to do so.
Music: Anyone can re/produce music. There are many courses, schools and experts dedicated to learning the art.

8. General Effect

Quran: Gives soothing internal effects that are long lasting and soul nourishing; long term feel-good-effect.
Music: Gives an external soothing effect that is temporary; short term feel-good-effect.

9. Effect on Soul

Quran: Pure nourishment for the soul through spiritual cleansing and purification.
Music: Junk food for the soul through lowering of spritual strength and draining the nafs.

10. Effect on Heart

Quran: Builds a sound heart, free of diseases.
Music: Increases diseases of the heart, from doubts to desires.

11. Lifestyle

Quran: Message can blossom subliminally into a positive lifestyle and a stable personality.
Music: Message can transform lifestyle into a negative one producing an unstable, corrupt personality.

12. Connection with Allah 

Quran: Makes one develop a high degree of consciousness of Allah , taking one closer to Him.
Music: Brings about ‘gaflah’ (heedlessness) of Allah , increasing attraction to musicians.

Way Forward
The believer has a purpose driven life, seeking worldly good as well as eternal good. You may take various means and processes while seeking this good, striving to overcome your desires and remaining firm upon the truth. There is no doubt the Qur’an is the greatest personal development tool for mankind; driving self and spiritual growth, reinforcing the truth of tawheed, directing towards the fitrah and promoting self reflection.

”This is the Book about which there is no doubt, a guidance for those conscious of Allah” (Al Baqarah, 2:2)

The global music industry is worth billions of dollars and steadily increasing in revenue. Yet, they are busy innovating new ways to oppose the message of guidance by promoting music and musicians to such a high status, as a means of finding worldly success, happiness and inner peace. Don’t fall into heedlessness. Fight your nafs. And keep pondering these simple truths.

Praise be to Allah.

Allah has forbidden men to have sexual intercourse with their wives during Menstruation.

Allah says in Glorious Quran:

“They ask you concerning menstruation. Say: that is an Adha (a harmful thing for a husband to have a sexual intercourse with his wife while she is having her menses), therefore, keep away from women during menses” [al-Baqarah 2:222]

From the above verse, it is clearly forbidden by Allah to do it and He, subhana-wa-taala has told us that it is harmful to both men and women.

Science has revealed some of the harms that are disclosed in this verse but they have not fully managed to describe all of them. In this article, we will try to discuss some of those.

No Sex in Menstruation
Forbidden in Menstruation

Having intercourse with a menstruating woman must be avoided because it results in an increase in the flow of menstrual blood as the veins of the uterus are congested and prone to rupture. Hence, they get damaged easily and may result in injury. The walls of the vagina are also susceptible to injury so the likelihood of inflammation is increased. Also, mans penis can also be inflamed due to irritation caused during intercourse.

Having intercourse during menstruating is also off-putting to both the man and the woman because of the presence of blood and its smell. It may make a person uninterested in sex.

Dr. Muhammad al-Baar said, “speaking of the harm that may be caused to the menstruating woman: The lining of the uterus is shed during menstruation, and the uterus is scarred as a result, just like when the skin is flayed. So it is vulnerable to bacteria and the introduction of the bacteria that are to be found at the tip of the penis poses a great danger to the uterus.”

Hence we can conclude that the penetration of the penis into the vagina at the time of menstruation is the induction of germs at the time when the body is unable to fight them off.


Some doctors also believe that harm is not limited to the uterus and sexual organs but may be spread to other organs as well.

Intercourse is Forbidden During Menstruation
Intercourse is Forbidden During Menstruation

1. The spread of infection to the fallopian tubes, which may then become blocked, which in turn may lead to infertility or ectopic pregnancy, which is the most dangerous kind of pregnancy.

2. Infection may be spread to the urethra, bladder, and kidneys; Diseases of the urinary tract are serious and chronic in many cases.

3. An increase of germs in the menstrual blood, especially gonorrhea germs.

4. It may cause immense pain in the pelvic region in women as menstruation is accompanied by pains, the severity of which varies from one woman to another.

5. Many women suffer depression and stress during menstruation and intercourse may cause an increase in it.

6. Women’s sexual desire decreases and many women have no interest at all in sex during their periods. The entire reproductive system is in a state that is akin to sickness, so intercourse at this time is not natural and serves no purpose, rather it can cause a great deal of harm.

It is not the only woman who is affected by this rather men may also be affected by this action.

It may cause infection which may result in sterility in men. The severe pains suffered as a result of this infection may be even worse than the sterility it causes.

Stop intercourse in menstruation
Stop intercourse in menstruation

And there are many other harmful effects, some of which have not yet been discovered, but Allaah has referred to them when He said (interpretation of the meaning):

“Say: that is an Adha (a harmful thing for a husband to have a sexual intercourse with his wife while she is having her menses), therefore, keep away from women during menses and go not unto them till they are purified (from menses and have taken a bath)”

[al-Baqarah 2:222]

Allaah has described it as adha, a harmful thing both for the wife and for the husband, and other harmful effects about which Allaah knows best.

Thus it becomes clear that the prohibition on intercourse at the time of menstruation is not just because of the blood, rather it is for many reasons as stated above.

However, it is permissible for a man to be intimate with his wife, without having intercourse (at the time of menstruation).

And Allah knows best.

Ruling on Masturbation and How to Cure the Problem

Masturbation is haraam in Islam for both men and women.

It is forbidden and there are numerous evidence that point out this.  Masturbation is a sin which tempts and leads a person towards Zina and immodesty.

Masturbation is a sin
Masturbation is a sin

All believing men and women are to guard their chastity and refrain from such evil acts. The religion of Islam wants a person to be of extremely pure and modest nature.

There is no place for any kind of immodest or wickedness in Islam. Allah subhana-wa-ta’ala has made all the good and lawful things pure and clean and the impure things are regarded as unlawful.

It is because of this the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “the best of the people is the one with the good character”. Hence a person must always strive to be of best character.

In another narration, he says: “When your modesty goes on reducing (and there remains no veil of a hindrance in between you and immorality), then do whatever you wish”. (Bukhari)
We can conclude from this hadith that with the beginning of masturbation, the modesty of a person goes on decreasing to a level where he doesn’t care about any immorality conducted by him. He is left with no shame and doesn’t fear Allah subhana-wa-ta’ala.

In one of the narration Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) mentions that: ““Modesty is a branch of Imaan” (Bukhari)

Purity and Cleanliness: Masturbation haram
Purity and Cleanliness

Hence a person who indulges in evil acts of immorality are the ones with week Imaan or in other words, the faith of a person is weakened by the evils of immodesty and immorality.
From the Quranic perspective, Imam Shaafi stated that masturbation is Haraam and forbidden from the following verses of Quran.

“And those who guard their chastity (i.e. private parts, from illegal sexual acts). Except for their wives or (the captives and slaves) that their right hands possess, – for them, they are free from blame. But whoever seeks beyond that, then those are the transgressors.” 23.5-7
“And let those who find not the financial means for marriage keep themselves chaste until Allah enriches them of His bounty.” 24.33.

In the first verse above it can be clearly seen that the illegal sexual acts(including Masturbation) are forbidden and whoever indulges in it is a transgressor.
In the second verse, we can see that if a  person is capable of marrying must marry and protect himself from evil acts and if he is not capable of marrying(financially) than he must fast as fasting will help him in being patient in facing temptations.

How to stop masturbation
How to stop masturbation?

Curing the habit of masturbation :

1. The intention. The motive to cure the problem must be to attain Allah’s blessings and solely based on fearing His punishment.

2. Marriage. If a person is financially capable of marrying that he should not waste any time and get married soon as this will protect him from immorality.

stop masturbation

3. Keeping oneself busy with the work and worshipping Allah subhana-wa-ta’ala.

4. Avoid watching indecent movies, photographs, and pornography that promotes immorality and immodesty.

5. Lowering your gaze.

6. Using your leisure in helping others and worshipping Allah.

7. Being aware of the health problems such as weak eyesight, back pain etc caused by the masturbation.

8. Avoiding the thoughts that it is permissible because it prevents one from committing Zina. No, it leads one to it.

9. Willpower. a strong willpower is mandatory to achieve anything and if a person is not sincere and lacks willpower than he will not be able to cope up with the problem.

Masturbation is Evil Act
Masturbation is an evil act

10. Follow Prophet Muhammad(peace be upon him)`s advice i.e. fasting. If the problem is too chronic that a person is advised to fast as it diminishes the power of sexual temptations.

11. Keep a good company. Try to be with people who are god fearing and righteous. Avoid to be in the company of those for whom immorality is normal.

12. Ask Allah to cure you. Seek his forgiveness and do tawbah.

May Allah protect and help us. May Allah keep us from all the roots of evil and wickedness.

Shirk Among Muslims

Types Of Shirk Among Muslims 

It’s a common understanding among the Muslims that shirk is only done by non-Muslims. But No! It is not so. Shirk is also prevalent among Muslims. Below mentioned and explained are some of the common types of it which we find among Muslims.

  • (i) Going to the grave and calling upon the dead.
  • (ii) Wearing of Talisman (Taweez)
  • (iii) Democracy
  • (iv) Fatwa Shopping
  • (v) Palmistry and Fortune telling
  • (vi) Asking someone to intercede with Allah (SWT)
  • (vii) Riya Showing off
  • (viii) Excessive love of someone or something
  • (ix) Worship of Money
  • (x) Making your own nafs as a god (Worshipping your passions)

(i) Going to the grave and calling upon the dead.


Many people who profess to be Muslims, go to the Dargah and call upon a dead person in the grave and they think that by doing so they will have their needs fulfilled. What is the difference between that and worshipping an idol? It is one and the same thing!!

“But you cannot make those to hear who are (buried) in graves.” (Quran 35:22)

(ii) Wearing of Talisman (Taweez)


Wearing of amulets, talisman (taweez) etc. is also shirk Since you attribute it the power to protect you.

Isa ibn Hamza said: I went to see Abdullah ibn Hakim and his face was red due to high fever. I said to him: ‘Why don’t you use an amulet?’ He said: ‘We seek refuge with Allah from it. The Messenger of Allah (saws) said: “Whoever wears anything as an amulet will be entrusted to it”. (Narrated by Abu Daw’ud)

(iii) Democracy

Democracy means “rule of the people”. It is people who decide what is lawful and what is unlawful. What is halal (lawful) and what is haraam (unlawful). The sovereignty belongs to people and NOT to Allah. When we demand democracy, we deny that Allah is Al-Hakim (The judge) and we deny that Allah is Al-Hakeem (The most wise).

(iv) Fatwa Shopping

Some Muslims hunt for a fatwa which suits their perverted beliefs, and when they get it, they rely upon it and continue doing what they are doing even though its ruling is crystal clear in the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet (pbuh). Some examples of Fatwa shopping are:

Riba: Though majority of scholars agree that bank interest is prohibited in Islam and its very clear from the Quran and the Sunnah. Yet certain Muftis have given fatwas that it is permissible for Muslims living in the west to deal in interest.

Muslims normally hunt for such fatwas and continue dealing in riba even though its prohibition is crystal clear in the Quran

Hijaab: When France enforced the ban on hijaab, certain Muftis went on to say that its not compulsory for Muslim women in the west to wear hijaab! Many Muslims hunt for such fatwas and start following such Muftis, even though its commandment is in black & white in the Quran.

So Dear Muslims follow what Allah and his Messenger (SAW) say and stop hunting for fatwas to suit your perverted beliefs.

(v) Palmistry and Fortune telling


All sorts of fortune telling including palmistry and horoscopes are prohibited in Islam. Only Allah (SWT) knows the future and only he has the knowledge of the unseen. It is shirk because you attribute one of the qualities of Allah to human beings who do not have the knowledge of the unseen.

(vi) Asking someone to intercede with Allah (SWT)

Some Muslims ask Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and also other saintly people to intercede with Allah. It is no doubt a shirk .It is prohibited to ask someone to intercede with Allah. He commands us to pray and supplicate to him directly. But certain people still intercede with Allah. Many Shia Muslims ask Hazrat Ali to intercede with Allah which is shirk .

“And your Lord says: “Call on Me; I will answer your (Prayer): but those who are too arrogant to serve Me will surely find themselves in Hell – in humiliation!”

(vii) Riya Showing off

Riya (Showing off) is that you do your deeds to show off to people and not to appease Allah.

Prophet (SAW) said: ‘The thing that I fear for you the most is minor shirk’. The companions asked: ‘O’ Messenger of Allah, what is minor shirk?’ He replied: ‘Showing off (ar-riya), for verily Allah will say on the day of resurrection when people are receiving their rewards, ‘Go to those whom you were showing off too in the world and see if you can find any reward from them”.

(viii) Excessive love of someone or something

Many Muslims beat themselves to commemorate someone who has passed away. They get dissatisfied with the will of Allah. Loving someone or something more than Allah (SWT) is also shirk.

“But those of Faith are overflowing in their love for Allah.” (Quran) 
The love for Allah is being obedient to him and his messenger (pbuh).

(ix) Worship of Money


Meaning halal or haram, the person doesn’t care, he just want to have it.

The Prophet pbuh said, “Let the slave of Dinar and Dirham of Quantify and Khamisa (i.e. money and luxurious clothes) perish (destroy) for he is pleased if these things are given to him, and if not, he is displeased (and he doesnt care if its halal or haram).”

(x) Making your own nafs as a god (Worshipping your passions)


A Muslim is the one who submits his will to Allah. If you submit to anyone else other than Allah, you have taken that thing or that person as a god other than Allah. It even includes your nafs. If you submit to your nafs and do whatever you want to do regardless of what Allah commands, then you have made it your god.

Allah says in Quran: “Did you see the one who took his own wishes and whims as his god?” 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 9 Surah Taubah verse 51:
Say: “Nothing will happen to us except what Allah has decreed for us: He is our Protector”; and on Allah let the believers put their trust.


Most of us including me would think that the above means that every little thing we do is shirk, and will allah forgive us or not etc?

The kinds that are mentioned above are true as references of the above are available in Quran & Sunnah but keep this in mind that if we do any of the above shirks mistakenly than it will be considered as a sin and one can repent for it. But if they become your habit & you do it again & again & even after knowing that its shirk than even one of the above committed can destroy all the good deeds.

May Allah Protect Us & Have Mercy On Us. Ameen

We are posting this story here for those reverts who pray in tears to save their parents from fire;

This story will give you hope and patience… , In sha Allah one day your parents and loved ones will follow your path and will enter Islam, In sha Allah you will enjoy the sweetness of their companionship once again…

It was narrated that Abu Hurairah said:

I used to call my mother to Islam when she was a mushrikah. I called her one day and she said something about the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) that I did not like to hear.

So I went to the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) weeping, and said, “O Messenger of Allah, I have been calling my mother to Islam, but she refuses. I called her today and she said something about you that I did not like to hear. Pray to Allah to guide the mother of Abu Hurairah.”

Story : Abu Huraira & his Mother.
Story : Abu Huraira & his Mother.

The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said,

“O Allah, guide the mother of Abu Hurairah.” I went out feeling optimistic because of the duaa of the Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him). When I came home and reached the door, I saw that it was slightly ajar.

My mother heard my footsteps and said, “Stay where you are, O Abu Hurairah!” and I could hear the trickling of water. She took a bath and got dressed, and put on her headcover, then she opened the door and said, “O Abu Hurairah, I bear witness that there is no god except Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger!”

I went back to the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him), and I came to him weeping with joy. I said, “O Messenger of Allah, rejoice, for Allah has answered your prayer and guided the mother of Abu Hurairah.” So he praised Allah and said good words.

Story : Abu Hurairah

I said, “O Messenger of Allah, pray to Allah to make my mother and me beloved to His believing slaves, and to make them beloved to us.” The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said, “O Allah, make this slave of Yours – meaning Abu Hurairah – and his mother beloved to Your believing slaves, and make the believers beloved to them.” So there are no believing people who hear of me even though they do not see me, but they love me. (Narrated by Muslim, 2491)



Building mosques over the graves of Prophets and righteous people, or over places connected to their lives, is something which the perfect sharee’ah of Islam came to forbid and warn against, and curses those who do that (grave worship), because it is one of the means that lead to shirk and exaggeration about the Prophets and the righteous people….

Grave Worship = Idol Worship
Grave Worship = Idol Worship

See More It is not permissible for graves to be left in mosques, whether that is the grave of a wali (“saint”) or of anyone else, because the Messenger (PBUH) forbade that and warned against that, and he cursed the Jews and Christians for doing that.

It was narrated that he (PBUH) said: “May Allah curse the Jews and the Christians, for they took the graves of their Prophets as places of worship.” [Bukhaari, 1330, Muslim, 529]

He (PBUH) also said: “When a righteous man died among them, they would build a place of worship over his grave and put those images in it. They are the most evil of mankind before Allaah.” (Al-Bukhaari, 427; Muslim, 528)

He (PBUH) said: “Those who came before you took the graves of their Prophets and righteous people as places of worship. Do not take graves as places of worship – I forbid you to do that.” (Narrated by Muslim in his Saheeh, 532, from Jundab ibn ‘Abd-Allaah al-Bajali).

So the Prophet (PBUH) forbade taking graves as places of worship and he cursed those who do that, stating that they are the most evil of mankind. So we must beware of that.

Jabir said: Allah’s Messenger PBUH forbade that the graves should be plastered or they be used as sitting places (for the people), or a building should be built over them. [Muslim :: Book 4 : Hadith 2116 also Muslim: Book 4: Hadith 2114]

Grave Worship
Grave Worship

Abu Wail reported that Sayyidina Ali (RA) said to Abu Hayyaj Asadi, “I am sending you to do what the Prophet sent me to do, (that) leave no high grave without levelling it (with the ground) and no picture without obliterating it.” [Tirmidhi 1051, Sahih by Albani also Abu Dawud 3218, Nisai 2027, also Muslim :: Book 4 : Hadith 2115]

It is known that everyone who prays at a grave (Dargah) is taking it as a place of worship, and whoever builds a mosque over a grave (Dargah) has taken it as a place of worship.

So we must keep graves far away from the mosques and not put graves inside mosques, in obedience to the command of the Prophet (PBUH) and so as to avoid the curse issued by our Lord against those who build places of worship over graves (grave worship), because when a person prays in a mosque in which there is a grave, the Shaytaan tempt them to call upon the deceased or to seek his help, or to pray to him or prostrate to him, thus committing major shirk (polytheism) and going out of fold of Islam.

Everyone who looks at the state of the Muslim world and the shirk and exaggeration that have come about because of building mosques over tombs, venerating them, adorning them and appointing custodians for them, will realize that this is indeed a means that leads to ‘Grave Worshipping’.

Clearance Of Two Doubts.

Doubt No. 1: Some people use the story of the People of the Cave to support their specious argument that this is allowed: “(then) those who won their point said (most probably the disbelievers): ‘We verily, shall build a place of worship over them’” [al-Kahf 18:21]

The answer to that is: that Allaah has told us about the leaders and powerful people of that time, and that they said these words. That does not imply that ALLAH liked that or approved of them, rather ALLAH said that by way of blaming them and condemning their action.

This is indicated by the fact that the Messenger (PBUH) to whom this verse was revealed and who was the most knowledgeable of people as to how it should be interpreted, forbade his ummah to build mosques over graves, warned them against doing so, and cursed and condemned those who did that.

If that had been permissible, then the Messenger of Allaah (PBUH) would not have discouraged it in such emphatic terms, and gone to the extent of cursing those who did it, and said that they are the most evil of mankind before Allaah.

This is sufficient to convince the seeker of truth. Even if we were to assume that building places of worship over graves was permitted to those who came before us, it is not permissible for us to follow their example in that, because our sharee’ah abrogates the laws that came before it, and our Messenger (PBUH) is the Final Messenger whose sharee’ah is complete and universal.

He has forbidden us to build mosques over graves, so it is not permissible for us to go against him.

Doubt No. 2: There is another specious argument put forward by those who worship graves, namely the fact that the grave of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) is in his mosque.

Islam forbids erecting structures over graves, and commands that any such structures should be knocked down, as it surely leads to Grave worshipping (grave worship) thereby causing to commit shirk (polytheism- associaing partners with ALLAH) and eventually making the one to leave the fold of Islam.

The kalimah of Tawheed gets nullified and the one no longer remains Muslim. Shaykh‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn Baaz (rahmahullah) said: The answer to that is that the Sahaabah (radhiallahuanhum) did not bury him in his mosque, rather they buried him in the house of ‘Aa’ishah (radhiallahu anha).

When al-Waleed ibn ‘Abd al-Malik expanded the Mosque of the Prophet (PBUH) at the end of the first century AH, he incorporated the room into the mosque, but he did wrong thereby, and some of the scholars denounced him for that, but he believed that there was nothing wrong with it for the sake of expanding the mosque.

It is not permissible for a Muslim to take that as evidence that mosques may be built over graves, or that people may be buried inside mosques, because that goes against the saheeh ahaadeeth, and because it is a means that may lead to shirk by associating the occupants of the graves in worship with Allaah.

End quote. Majmoo’ Fataawa al-Shaykh Ibn Baaz, 5/388, 389. Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen (rahimahullah) was asked about the ruling on praying in a mosque in which there is a grave.

Grave Worship
Grave Worship

He replied: Praying in a mosque in which there is a grave falls into two categories:

(i) Either the grave was there before the mosque, and the mosque was built over the grave. It is essential to shun this mosque and not pray therein, and the one who built it must knock it down; if he does not do so, then the Muslim authorities must knock it down.

(ii) Or the mosque was there before the grave, and the deceased was buried after the mosque was built. In the case the grave must be dug up, and the remains taken out and buried with the people (in the graveyard). As for praying in such a mosque, it is permissible so long as the grave is not in front of the worshipper, because the Prophet (PBUH) forbade praying in the direction of graves.

With regard to the grave of the Prophet (PBUH) which is incorporated into his mosque, it is well known that the Mosque of the Prophet (PBUH) was built before his death, and was not built over his grave.

It is also well known that the Prophet (PBUH) was not buried in the mosque, rather he was buried in his house which was separate from the mosque.

At the time of al-Waleed ibn ‘Abd al-Malik he wrote to his governor in Madeenah, who was ‘Umar ibn ‘Abd al-‘Azeez, in 88 AH, ordering him to dismantle the Prophet’s Mosque and add to it the rooms of the wives of the Prophet (PBUH).

‘Umar ibn Azeez gathered the prominent people and fuqaha’, and read the letter of the caliph al-Waleed to them. That caused them distress, and they said: “Leave it as it is, that is better.”
And it was narrated that Sa’eed ibn al-Musayyib denounced the incorporation of ‘Aa’ishah’s room into the mosque, as if he feared that the grave would be taken as a place of worship.
Umar ibn Azeez wrote a letter to that effect to al-Waleed, and al-Waleed sent word to him ordering him to carry out his instructions, so ‘Umar had no other choice.

So you see that the grave of the Prophet (PBUH) was not placed in the mosque, and the mosque was not built over it, so there are no grounds for those who try to quote this as evidence that people may be buried inside mosques or that mosques may be built over graves.

It is proven that the Prophet (PBUH) said: “May the curse of Allaah be upon the Jews and the Christians; they have taken the graves of their Prophets as places of worship.” He said that as he was dying, as a warning to his ummah against doing what they did.

When Umm Salamah told him of a church that she had seen in Ethiopia and the images therein, he said: “Those people, if a righteous man among them died, they would build a place of worship over his grave (grave worship).

Grave Worship
Grave Worship

They are the most evil of people before Allaah.” And it was narrated from Ibn Mas’ood (RA) that the Prophet (PBUH) said: “Among the most evil of people upon whom the Hour will come when they are still alive are those who take graves as places of worship.”
Narrated by Imam Ahmad with a jayyid isnaad. [Majmoo’ Fataawa al-Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen, 12/question no. 292]

Jabir (RA) said: “Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) forbade that the graves should be plastered or they be used as sitting places (for the people), or a building should be built over them.” [Muslim :: Book 4 : Hadith 2116 also Muslim: Book 4: Hadith 2114]

Abu Wail reported that Sayyidina Ali (RA) said to Abu Hayyaj Asadi, “I am sending you to do what the Prophet sent me to do, (that) leave no high grave without levelling it (with the ground) and no picture without obliterating it.” [Tirmidhi 1051, Sahih by Albani Abu Dawud 3218, Nisai 2027, also Muslim :: Book 4 : Hadith 2115]

ALLAH (SWT) Says: “Surely, the religion (i.e. the worship and the obedience) is for Allâh only. And those who take Auliyâ’ (protectors, helpers, lords, gods) besides Him (say): “We worship them (grave worship) only that they may bring us near to Allâh.” Verily, Allâh will judge between them concerning that wherein they differ. Truly, Allâh guides not him who is a liar, and a disbeliever.” [Surah Zumar, 039:003]

ALLAH (SWT) Says: “And they worship besides Allâh things that harm them not, nor profit them, and they say: “These are our intercessors with Allâh.” [Surah Yunus, 10: 18]
