Characteristics of Justice in Effective Punishment


The divine messages revealed throughout history have certain constant, unchanging features: warning (the disbelievers) and bringing glad tidings (to the believers); encouragement and dissuasion; and reward and punishment. This is because the result of actions -- be it prosperity or wretchedness; ending up in Paradise or Hell -- is the ultimate purpose of worshiping Allah The Almighty. Allah The Almighty created humans in a manner that they are ready to accept reform through the methodology of reward and punishment. Children can be easily molded and the person who takes care of them during th...... More

The story of Prophet Salih – II


After they plotted to kill the she-camel, the disbelievers among the people of Prophet Salih, may Allaah exalt his mention, began to watch her closely, observing all her movements.

The problems facing modern civilization


A contemporary commentator once observed that just as perversion has set in Western society, it has also taken root in Muslim society. Then how do you regard Western civilization as being wrong and Islamic civilization as being right? This objection, if we examine it, will be found to be ill judged, because our comparison of Western and Islamic civilization makes a judgment on the basis of standar...... More

Significance of the month of Sha’ban


Question: What is the significance of month of Sha’ban and can we fast on 15th Sha’ban? Fatwa: All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad may Allah exalt his mention is His slave and Messenger. The actions of people are presented to Allah in the month of Sha’ban so the Prophet, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam, used to fast repeatedly in this month. ‘Aa'ishah, may Allah be pleased with her, said: "I never saw the Messenger of Allah fast for a complete month except for Ramada......

The origin of April Fools’ day


Many theories have been put forward about how the tradition began. Unfortunately, none of them are conclusive. Thus, the origin of the “custom of making April fools” remains as much a mystery to us as it was back in 1708 CE. The most popular theory about the origin of April Fools’ Day involves the French calendar reform of the sixteenth century. The theory goes like this: In 156...... More
