Hey salams :)


Thursday, May 31, 2007

Asalaam Alaikum, sisters. I don't even know who reads this blog anymore. lol.

Sorry again, about the lack of gets in the way [or sometimes it's my internet company..]. Not much to report from my side. I'll be heading back to college in about a week. Can't say I'm excited. But Alhamdulillah. This is temporary [so is life]. Living in a different country has made me realize things I would never have had I not moved. So Alhamdulillah. I'm so blessed.

One thing is to not lose focus. It'll get you stuck in a lot of places you don't want to be stuck. I'm in med school so I guess if I don't concentrate I'll never get out. Lol. Or something to that extent. Same thing with life...we are here to do our work and leave this world to go on to the Hereafter. We can't lose focus or else..well, we will end up in places we'd rather not be..or we'll have to take a long detour or something. Or we'll be under a lot of stress waiting in line for our interview with ou Creator. Something like that. *shrugs*

I guess I'm trying to make myself feel better about life in general and going back to India. I just have to focus. It's not home, but neither is the US. It's not my permanent residence. I just need to do what I have to do to succeed. Anyways, I'm rambling. Later.

A Ghazel In Praise of the Prophet
by Prof. Haroun Mustapha Leon, M.A., Ph.D., F.S.P.[from the 'Islamic Review vol. 3 1915']

So long as the heart doth pulsate and beat,
So long as the sun bestows light and heat,
So long as the blood thro' our veins doth flow,
So long as the mind in knowledge doth grow,
So long as the tongue retains power of speech,
So long as wise men true wisdom do teach,

The praise of God's prophet, Ahmed the best,
Shall flow from our lips and spring from our breast.'
Twas Rosul-Allah from darkness of night
Did lead us to Truth, did give to us Light,
Did point out the path, which follow'd with zest,
Leadeth to Islam and gives Peace and Rest.
Praise be to Allah! 'Twas He who did send
Ahmed Muhammed, our Prophet, our Friend.

Asalaam Alaikum, everyone..

I can't sign into my hotmail account in case anyone either sent me something or sent a request to join the ya-ya. So if you did, I'll be setting up a new account soon or you can leave me a comment. Sorry I haven't been around much. I didn't have internet for 2 months and now I'm back home for the holidays so I haven't been doing much online stuff as of late. Anyways, take care.

Walaikum Asalaam

Volume: 1, Book Number: 11, Hadith Number: 649
Narrated Anas:
The Prophet did not come out for three days. The people stood for the prayer and Abu Bakr went ahead to lead the prayer. (In the meantime) the Prophet caught hold of the curtain and lifted it. When the face of the Prophet appeared we had never seen a scene more pleasing than the face of the Prophet as it appeared then. The Prophet beckoned to Abu Bakr to lead the people in the prayer and then let the curtain fall. We did not see him (again) till he died.

The Untapped Wisdom(Don't Neglect to Reflect)
(By Dr. Yunus Aidaroos)
Just a book?....nay!
Inside if you only look -and STUDY,
your attention it will hook.
Reading, kissing and just shelfing it, is no way
to unearth its meaning, its message; it is your highway.
Highway for this life, and a promised shade on resurrection -
a guarantee of eternal bliss and total satisfaction !
Come, read me , STUDY me, pause to REFLECT -
lessons from my beautiful stories, do select -
to shape your life for the Hereafter,
instead of loving materialism, fun and laughter.
As the clock ticks away precisely,
those who study me wisely...
will comprehend my details -
some obvious, some hidden - and the many tales,
those of Yusuf, Moses and Sulaiman;
so do BEFRIEND the majestic Qur'an

Volume: 1, Book Number: 2, Hadith Number: 12
Narrated Anas:
The Prophet said, "None of you will have faith till he wishes for his (Muslim) brother what he likes for himself."



Wednesday, March 14, 2007

Volume: 1, Book Number: 11, Hadith Number: 642
Narrated Nafi':
Ibn 'Umar said, "Allah's Apostle said, 'If the supper is served for anyone of you and the Iqama is pronounced, start with the supper and don't be in haste (and carry on eating) till you finish it." If food was served for Ibn 'Umar and Iqama was pronounced, he never came to the prayer till he finished it (i.e. food) in spite of the fact that he heard the recitation (of the Qur'an) by the Imam (in the prayer). Narrated Ibn 'Umar: The Prophet said, "If anyone of you is having his meals, he should not hurry up till he is; satisfied even if the prayer has been started."



Sunday, March 11, 2007

Volume: 1, Book Number: 2, Hadith Number: 47Narrated Abu Huraira:
One day while the Prophet was sitting in the company of some people, (The angel) Gabriel came and asked, "What is faith?" Allah's Apostle replied, 'Faith is to believe in Allah, His angels, (the) meeting with Him, His Apostles, and to believe in Resurrection." Then he further asked, "What is Islam?" Allah's Apostle replied, "To worship Allah Alone and none else, to offer prayers perfectly to pay the compulsory charity (Zakat) and to observe fasts during the month of Ramadan." Then he further asked, "What is Ihsan (perfection)?" Allah's Apostle replied, "To worship Allah as if you see Him, and if you cannot achieve this state of devotion then you must consider that He is looking at you." Then he further asked, "When will the Hour be established?" Allah's Apostle replied, "The answerer has no better knowledge than the questioner. But I will inform you about its portents.
1. When a slave (lady) gives birth to her master.
2. When the shepherds of black camels start boasting and competing with others in the construction of higher buildings. And the Hour is one of five things which nobody knows except Allah.
The Prophet then recited: "Verily, with Allah (Alone) is the knowledge of the Hour--." (31. 34) Then that man (Gabriel) left and the Prophet asked his companions to call him back, but they could not see him. Then the Prophet said, "That was Gabriel who came to teach the people their religion." Abu 'Abdullah said: He (the Prophet) considered all that as a part of faith.

Volume: 4, Book Number: 54, Hadith Number: 468
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Apostle said, "The first group (of people) who will enter Paradise will be (glittering) like the moon when it is full. They will not spit or blow their noses or relieve nature. Their utensils will be of gold and their combs of gold and silver; in their centers the aloe wood will be used, and their sweat will smell like musk. Everyone of them will have two wives; the marrow of the bones of the wives' legs will be seen through the flesh out of excessive beauty. They ( i.e. the people of Paradise) will neither have differences nor hatred amongst themselves; their hearts will be as if one heart and they will be glorifying Allah in the morning and in the evening."

may allah reward us with jannat ul Firdous(paradise).(ameen)

Niqaab: Its Islamic Ruling and Controversy in the Western world

I got an email on niqaab and thought you guys might want to read it, too. Sorry, Sister Bint Ahmad, for not posting the entire thing up...I'm overseas and they don't allow me to download without charging and I think we've used up the limit for the month. I would have had this up earlier but with moving back and the itnernet going on and off I haven't had much time to update.

Description: When we delve into the issue of Niqaab, its standing within Islaam and whether or not it is an obligation we realise that this in itself is a huge topic and can not be explained (with all its evidences) within the scope of this dissertation. When I wanted to extend this further to Niqaab in the West I realised that in front of me was not an easy matter as one can find a wealth of information on Niqaab, but to actually weigh it up with the problemsMuslims are facing in the West is another matter all together. The recent controversy sparked by Jack Straws comments affected my dissertation greatly as Jack Straws comments came just prior to the completion of my dissertation. Remarkably the debate spurred up much more information than I was able to obtain prior to it; for this reason, to do justice to the topic I found it necessary to add the new information that was available.

Here's the link.

What Does Tomorrow Hold?

My younger sister is in love with toys. Obviously. But why does she have to be obsessed with those Bratz dolls? They're so ugly. Anyways, my mom went out and she saw one and bought it for her. So, of course the child was ecstatic and she plays with it for hours and hours.

I didn't like what was written on the box, though [I'm sucha mom]. It was a gymnast Bratz doll and on the back it said this:
Stand back 'cuz the Bratz are rockin' their all time favorite sports-- showin' the world that it's not just about how you play, but about how Hot you look when you win!
Since when was there so much emphasis on how you look [as a child]? Not even how you look, but how good [hot, sexy, etc] you look. Is that what everything is about these days? This world is so superficial. Not just here, but almost everywhere. And if not everywhere, it will be soon. I guarantee it.

What happened to doing your best? Okay, so in my time, Barbie, physically, was a little unrealistic. Okay, a whole lot unrealisitc. That wasn't all Barbie was for. She was a doctor, a teacher, a mom, a veterinarian. She at least has some sort of career. All I see on TV ads are clubbing or partying scenes. I never cared about how I looked to other people, or what I did. On the website it says, "The only girls with a passion for fashion!"

What are people trying to do by selling toys like this to little kids? I mean, don't they have anything dolls or toys out there like "you-can-be-more-than-just-a-stupid-ho" dolls. Okay, and even if there are...they aren't like the ones on TV. So if you get adoll for a kid, and she's never heard of it, chances are she won't play with it as much as the ones on TV.

My sister [she's three and a half, by the way] always does her hair [I guess from watching me] and then starts posing and flipping her hair and swishing it around [I don't do this] going, "Do I look pretty? Do you like my hair? I just don't want that to be her main concern as a child, and then to be her only concern as an adult. I don't know how the boys toys are like. All I know are Thomas, the Tank Engine and Jay Jay the Jet plane. But in terms of other cartoons for older children, aren't they all violent? Remember the cartoons like Bug Bunny and Animaniacs? I'm not sure, but whenever I flip through TV the only cartoons I see revolve around fighting. Even if it is to fight the bad guys.

Why do you think people are all up on killing other people? This country is crazy with crime. People shoot each other for no reason. It's bad enough they shoot each other for stupid reaons, now they don't even have reasons. People are killing one another. Another human being. That thinks and works. That has a family. That can feel emotional, physical pain. No one has a right to take that away a life except God. And here we are slaughtering each other like it's a game.

I do think toys and television have something to do with it. A person doesn't wake up one morning and decide to hurt people. In most cases it's embedded in their heads and has been years before committing the crime.

I was talking to my friend about this last night on our way home from her school. She doesn't want to raise her kids in America. She doesn't want to constantly have to worry about what her kids do, watch, hang out with, etc. The thing is, you can't shelter your kids forever. Also, it's like this everywhere. Sorry for hating on "Islamic" countries but I know that women strip their abayas and hijabs off as soon as they hit the airport. Don't tell me they don't. It's cultural Islam. They do that at my college in India, too. They only wear it outside. My sister and I are the few that do cover our hair.

I'd rather my daugher wear hijab in America or dress modestly in America and have that sincerity with her to wear it rather than wear the full Abaya and Niqaab overseas where it's just a cultural practice. I don't want her life to be a cultural practice. I want her to believe. It is a challenge in America, I'm not saying it isn't. But once you have that faith, it' easier t practice than practicing in a Muslim dominant country or area.

I've lived in America and now I live in India. My school is mostly Muslim, but it's harder for me to practice Islam there. It's hard to practice around a lot of non-practicing Muslims. I'd rather that non-Muslims be the majority. I'd rather be cussed at, giving the finger or made fun of my non-Muslims. It's just easier for me.

I know a lot of Muslims in America don't practice Islam as they should [myslef included], but there still are a lot that do practice and are sincere and do try to become better every day. The percentage of practicing is higher in America than in where I live in India. I'm talking about Islam. Not Indian Islam. Not cultural Islam. No bad bid'ahs attached, etc.

So, to live in a Muslim dominant country now, is not much different. People do the same things they do here, just undercover. The shame, however, is still there. And that shame does keep people from doing things. Within a few more years, that will also vanish. An Egyptian friend told me that when she went back to visit she was shocked. When guys start dating, their mothers brag about it.

There are people who tell everyone that they are Syed [People who are of the Prophet Muhammad PBUH's descendants] and do whatever the hell they want. I would be so embarrassed of myself if I were Syed. I wouldn't tell anyone because I am insulting the Prophet PBUH. I don't know how people can do half the things they do, post it up on facebook for everyone to see [and why is facebook like a confessional for people? They wouldn't dare tell people about what they do but if it's on facebook it's okay..?] and call themselves Syed. If the prophet Muhammad PBUH saw the Ummah, forget his family, what would he think? He suffered so much for this Ummah and this is how we thank him. What does God think of all this?

With the next generation of people, I can't imagine how it will be. I'm scared to have kids. I'm too scared I won't be qualified to teach them their religion in a way that they will hold on to it. Will they be the ones who say, "I only say the Shahadah because my parents and grandparents said it"? Will they have the Qur'an with them? I don't know.

All I know is, what goes around comes around. Maybe if I'm a good kid and my parents and grandprents are and were good, religious people. InshaAllah my kids will be good, too. Du'as Du'as and more Du'as. The Du'as of a parent on their kids are very powerful.

Anyways, I'm done ranting, I have more to say, but that's one too many tangents. Maybe in another post. I've been thinking about this for a while now. I feel like we are degressing as Muslims, as human beings. We [as a whole] are a self-absorbed, self-obsessed people who care for nothing anymore. Our hearts are slowly turning cold. Pretty soon we will stop feeling anything irrelevant to ourselves. And what we do feel for ourselves is based off how we look and how much money we have or spend. And I'm scared for that.

I am new here and thsi is my very first post.How and where is every one?
Here is a hadeeth(saying of the holy Prophet Muhammed (SAW))
13: Volume: 1, Book Number: 10, Hadith Number: 548
Narrated Abu Bakr bin Abi Musa:My father said, "Allah's Apostle said, 'Whoever prays the two cool prayers ('Asr and Fajr) will go to Paradise.' "
so this hadeeth explains the importance of prayer.It doesnt mean that we just have to pray 2 prayers(fajar and asr) All prayers are compulsry and obligatory for every Muslim.
fajr is the time in very early morning.It is reeli difficult to get up from a warm bed and make wudu and pray....but not for a believer.A believer is the one who loves Allah so cant he just get up in the morning for his GOD??Is it that difficult??Is the comfort of the warm bed better than fire of hell? We r given the choice now Its up to us which is the right way to follow......................
jazakallah kahir for reading

Islamic Jokes

Here is the story of an Imam who got up after Friday prayers and announced to the people: "I have good news and bad news. The good news is, we have enough money to pay for our new building program. The bad news is, it's still out there in your pockets."


Once, the people of the city invited Mulla Nasruddin to deliver a speech. When he got on the minbar (pulpit), he found the audience was not very enthusiastic, so he asked "Do you know what I am going to say?" The audience replied "NO", so he announced "I have no desire to speak to people who don't even know what I will be talking about" and he left. The people felt embarrassed and called him back again the next day. This time when he asked the same question, the people replied "YES" So Mullah Nasruddin said, "Well, since you already know what I am going to say, I won't waste any more of your time" and he left. Now the people were really perplexed. They decided to try one more time and once again invited the Mullah to speak the following week. Once again he asked the same question - "Do you know what I am going to say?" Now the people were prepared and so half of them answered "YES" while the other half replied "NO". So Mullah Nasruddin said "The half who know what I am going to say, tell it to the other half" and he left!


"When I was in the desert," said Nasruddin one day, "I caused an entire tribe of horrible and bloodthirsty bedouins to run.""However did you do it?" asked a person."Easy. I just ran, and they ran after me."

Virtues of Praying Two Rak`ahs After Wudu

Abu Hurayrah reported that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said to Bilal, “O Bilal, tell me what good deed you have done in Islam that I hear the sound of your footsteps in Paradise?
Bilal said, “That after I purify myself during the day or night, I pray with that purification as much as Allah has destined for me(Al-Bukhari and Muslim).

`Uqbah ibn `Amir related that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “If one performs and perfects his ablution and prays two rak`ahs with his heart and face (completely on his prayer), Paradise becomes his (Muslim, Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah, and Ibn Khuzaimah).

Here's a link to a great post on a blog called Dervish. It's one of my favorite Muslimah blogs.


Friday, July 08, 2005

I thought this was an interesting way to approach the Quran. I found it on "Seeking the Path to Jannah" group on Maybe the rest of you can join it too.

To Benefit from the Qur’an

The Qur’an is Allah’s choicest gift to humanity. It is the miracle of miracles testifying to the prophethood of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) and the eternal source of divine guidance, healing, light, mercy. It is glad tidings for the Allah-conscious, and a warning for the heedless and the insolent. It contains inexhaustible wisdom; it is the quintessence of the knowledge of both ancients and the moderns, the Decisive Criterion; Spirit from Allah, and revelation from on High on the heart of the Messenger. Finally, it is our rope of salvation, pleader for us or against us on the Day of Final Reckoning. It is therefore imperative that we respond to the Divine Word most appropriately.

Here are a few tips to help us benefit from the Qur’an optimally:

  • Visualize the grandeur of the Word and the august majesty of its Speaker: In order to properly benefit from the Qur’an, it is imperative that our mind and heart be filled with a deep sense of reverence and awe for the Mighty Word and its Author, the Creator and Sovereign Lord of all beings, a Word, about which Allah says, “Had We sent down this Qur’an on a mountain you would see it humbling itself, breaking asunder for awe of Allah.” (Al-Hashr: 21)

  • Keep Your Presence of mind: We cannot expect to benefit from the Qur’an unless we pay undivided attention to it; so it is imperative that we dispel all distractions. One may do well to take the necessary steps to induce proper concentration, such as purifying oneself both physically and inwardly, sitting comfortably in a relaxed manner, etc.

  • Reflect: Since the main purpose of reading the Word is none other than reflecting on the message, we ought to reflect upon it. `Ali said, “There is no good in worship without knowledge; there is no good in reading without reflection.” That is the reason why we read in the sources that the Prophet, Companions and As-salaf As-salih (righteous early Muslims) often would repeat the same verse continuously in order to better reflect upon the deeper meanings of the verse.

  • Remove veils and obstacles: Often one is prevented from attaining due reflection because of the many veils and obstacles that stand in the way of appreciating the Qur’an, veils such as the following: (1) Obsession with external rules of recitation/articulation of sounds to such an extent that one is totally pre-occupied with them and is thus distracted from paying due attention to pondering the meanings; (2) Blind imitation of a particular sect or school or ideology and being fanatically attached to it so that one’s own preconceived biases or prejudices prevent one from perceiving the deeper meanings of the Word; (3) Persistence in sins or pride whereby the mirror of one’s heart becomes rusted so that it is incapable of gaining true spiritual insights; (4) Clinging to a particular work of tafseer so dogmatically that one holds the false view that the author has exhausted the entire meanings of the Qur’an in his exposition, no matter how articulate and profound he may be, for the Qur’an is inexhaustible in its depth.

  • Identify with the meanings of the verses read and respond to them sensitively: When reading the verses about attributes of Allah, bring to mind Allah’s incomparable nature and absolute uniqueness. When reading the verses that speak of Allah’s creation, think of the manifestation of divine power as revealed in His work, thus being led to recognize Allah’s might and glory. When reading the verses describing Paradise, cherish such ardent fervor for it that you spontaneously seek Allah’s mercy. When reading descriptions of Hell, you should tremble and pray that Allah keeps you safe from its torments.

  • Visualize that Allah is speaking to you directly through the Qur’an: As the late Dr. Iqbal said, “No advice from anyone benefited me as much as I benefited from the advice of my mother who told me, ‘My son, when reading the Qur’an, visualize in your mind that Allah is speaking to you through it!’” This is why Muhammad ibn Ka`b Al-Qurazi, one of the scholars of the generation after the Companions of the Prophet said, “Whoever has received the Qur’an, Allah has certainly spoken to him!”

  • Be sensitive: Imam Al-Ghazali says: In order to benefit from the Qur’an, three of our faculties must participate in the act of recitation, namely, the tongue, the mind and the heart. Thus the tongue articulates the sounds, the mind translates the meanings, and the heart becomes sensitive and receives admonition or counsel.

  • Develop in yourself the qualities of the Servants of the Merciful: The ultimate objective of the revelation is to transform our inner personalities in such a way that we personify the ideals and ethics of the Qur’an. This is why the Prophet was described by `A’ishah as a walking Qur’an. So one must read, reflect on the message, and act accordingly as the Companions of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) did, thus combining knowledge with practice.

  • Salute the Messenger, the medium of the Word: We cannot detach the Message from the Messenger, for he alone is the interpreter par excellence of the Word and its living exemplifier. Therefore, we ought to consistently send salutations of peace and blessings on him. For without a deep love for the Messenger, we cannot truly appreciate the revelations sent down by Allah to him through the medium of Angel Jibreel. May Allah for ever shower His choicest blessings and peace on His Servant and Messenger Muhammad, his family and companions. And may He grant us all the honor of joining their august company after we depart this transient world. Ameen.”

As I was browsing around on the Internet and looking at the website for Azizah magazine, a Muslim women's magazine, I found this poem. Give your thoughts on it.

Pop Islam versus the Real Struggle

by Maliha Balala

Cute hijabs, matching tight pants,
perfectly manicured hands
drumming restlessly to the beat of the latest Nasheed pop.
Nice rides, sipping caf? lattes,
halaqas embraced in the depths of cozy rooms,
speaking of distant dreams and privileged existences.

Do we know the real struggle?

Club ISNA, throngs of fans milling air-conditioned convention halls,
pop star speakers glimmer in the spotlight,
beckoning distant hearts to spirituality and deeper lives;
chastising in that, oh so mesmerizing voice,
as the crowd yells a deep bass,
takbir followed by shrills of, Allahu Akbar!

Do we really comprehend the Greatness of our Creator?

Trekking the globe in search of meaning,
disenchanted existences within treasure-filled homes,
dreams of substance blocked by trivial minds;
apathy radiates in different colors;
squeezing potential out of our beings
like deep soaked sponges inflated by muddy waters;

Can meaning seep into a suffocated heart?

Following zigzag paths of nothingness;
in search of, Deen or the other half of my Deen,
whatever comes first.
So we step in style, mouthfuls of Subhana'Allah;
gleeful, Masha'Allah;
echoing from empty hearts frenzied by empty lives.
Scratching the surface of submission;
echoing lines from distant lives;
dreams of greatness shelved away;
as we pander our Proud to Be Muslim shirts;
cheap prices for cheaper wares.
Pardon my jaded writing;
perhaps I forgot
the subtle depths of this struggle,
as I begin to still
the meaningless symbols clanging in my heart.

Please remind me:
Do rays of the Divine
ever illuminate these darkened corners ?



Hi assalamualaikum sisters all...
juz wanna posting some nyce wordz forwarding from my mailing list group....
Ok take care.... and keep proud 2 be a muslima!

It isn't the size of your house as such,
That matters so much at all;
It's the gentle hand and its loving touch,
That make it great or small.

The friends who come and the hour they go,
Who out of your house depart;
Will judge it not by the style you show,
But rather ... by the size of your heart.

It isn't the size of your head so much,
It isn't the wealth you found;
What will make you happy is how you touch,
The other lives that are all around.

For making money is not hard,
To live life well is an art:
How people love you and how they regard ...
Is all in the size of your heart.

Islamic Schools: Can they produce smart, educated, and good Muslim kids?

Salaam everyone, I am new to this blog, and to satisfy Hijabified's need for someone to post and just to spur discussion, I thought I would ask whether there are any Islamic schools that are both academically rigourous as well as provide a quality Islamic education?

The reason I ask this question is because at Yale, we hold a yearly conference called Critical Islamic Reflections. This year, one of the presenters talked about her study of an all-Muslim girls school and whether it provided both a strong academic background for a college education as well as a strong Islamic background to form well-rounded educated Muslim women. She found that this was not the purpose of the school, but rather, to for parents to shelter their girls from the influences of what they see as a corrupt Western culture. To read an abstract of her paper, go here. This sparked a debate among the people who were attending the conference, whether a school that helps create balanced and informed Muslim children in America (as well as the rest of the world.) So I pose this question to you, and ask whether you know of any schools that not only has a good Islamic education, but also excellent academic standards, and sends their students to the best colleges. If you do not know of any, do you think none exist? If so, why? Or do you think that it is impossible to blend a curriculum that emphasizes not only science, math, and the humanities, but also Islam?

Hope this creates some thoughts...enough thoughts to post! -Zahreen
