Your Wishes Take Nothing Away From the Ocean

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Allah, Most High said, ‘O My slaves! If the first of you and the last of you, the living among you and the dead among you, the fresh among you and the dry among you were to gather together upon one plateau, and each person among them were to ask for his utmost desire, and I were to give each what he asked for, that would not diminish from My sovereignty, except as if one of you were to pass by an ocean and dip a needle into it then remove it. That is because I am the Most Liberal without need, the Most Generous, doing as I will. I give by My speech and I punish by My speech, whenever I will something I only say, “Be” and it shall be.’” [Jami at-Tirmidhi] Read the rest of this entry »

Adhaan in Wilderness

Abu Saeed al-Khudri (radi Allahu anhu) said to Abu Sa’sa’ah: “I see that you love sheep and the wilderness. If you are with your sheep or in the wilderness, say the Adhaan for your prayer, and raise your voice when doing so, for as far as the Muezzin’s voice reaches, there is no Jinn, human, or thing but it will bear witness for him on the Day of Resurrection.” Abu Saeed (radi Allahu anhu) said: “I heard that from the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam).” [Bukhari] Read the rest of this entry »

 
 

What is beauty?

By: William C. Chittick

Anyone with the vaguest knowledge of Islamic culture knows that it has produced extraordinary works of art and architecture — Persian miniatures, the Taj Mahal, the Alhambra. Few are aware, however, that this rich artistic heritage is firmly rooted in a worldview that highlights love and beauty.

The link between love and beauty is clear. We love what we find beautiful. Beauty attracts, ugliness repels. Nor are beauty and ugliness simply physical characteristics. We all know people who are outwardly attractive but personally repellent, and vice versa.

Beauty makes a massive appearance in love poetry like that of Ibn al-Farid, Rumi, Yunus Emre, and countless others. Their verses stir up wonder and delight by evoking the beautiful characteristics of the beloved. Read the rest of this entry »

 

A River In A Matchbox

“A man came to the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) and said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, teach me but make it concise.’ He (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: ‘(1) When you stand to pray, pray like a man bidding farewell. (2) Do not say anything for which you will have to apologize. (3) And give up hope for what other people have.’” [Sunan Ibn Majah]

If we pray as though it is our last prayer we will implore Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) very humbly and supplicate Him very seriously. If our every prayer is like this then how much sin could we possibly accumulate between prayers? Read the rest of this entry »

The Right Time ….!

I feel it’s the right time
To act on my good wishes
That I have kept pending for a while
I feel it’s the right time
To throw away the unwanted
luggage carrying all these days
I feel it’s the right time
To live for myself
Than living for the material world
I feel it’s the right time Read the rest of this entry »

 
 

City attractions and shopping places with Luxury hotels in Makkah

by haramaynhotels
blog-14-02_0The sole purpose of visiting Makkah is mostly Hajj or Umrah for that everyone like to makes his/her stay in luxury hotels in Makkah to make it convenient. While being a pilgrim or a guest there, you would love to visit other sacred places of Makkah. The main center of attraction in the city is Kabba, Well of Zamzam and Safa/Marwa. It reminds us about Hajar and her son Ismael, when she ran seven times between Safa and Marwa and desperately wished for water from somewhere around. Finally her wish was answered when a fountain of water appeared near the feet of Ismael who was crying and scratching his feet to the ground. Today Pilgrims perform Saee in a same way and at the end drink Zamzam to their fill. It is not an only attraction but there are a lot of sites related with the history of Islam.
