The Ramadhan Checklist (2014-03-17 22:08:57)
When starting on a journey, most people like to have a list of items that they will need. Before departure they make sure they have all the items. That is to ensure they do not spoil their trip by forgetting something, or not being well equipped for the trip. A journey is usually exciting, and travellers like to make the most of the opportunity to enjoy themselves. Ramadhan is a spiritual journey for the believer. For the whole month, he travels to get nearer to Allah. On the way he will pass many obstacles and diversions which may hinder and slow his passage. To make sure that his journey is
Orderliness, Key to Success (2014-03-16 22:27:20)
The person who arranges his/her programs in various walks and phases of life on the basis of a carefully designed order is most likely to achieve the desired level of success in the fulfilment of the goals. No doubt, through orderliness, discipline and good planning, each goal becomes easy to achieve. In verse 33 of Chapter 21 of the Holy Qur'an we read about the creation of the night and the day. "It is He who created the night and the day, the sun and the moon, each swimming in an orbit."‌ From this Qur'anic verse we can infer the perfect amazing order in the world of creation. Cert
The Concept of Seven Heavens (2014-03-16 22:26:21)
What is the purpose of the Qur'an in pointing towards 'seven heavens'? Answer: Islamic scholars and commentators have narrated some clarifications regarding 'seven heavens' (towards which indication are made in the Holy Qur'an also). 1. Here, seven is meant to be multiplication (to be more). It means that He has created many heavens, i.e. He has created a number of times. And mostly it so happens that in Arabic, Persian, Urdu or other languages, the mention of numbers is done in the sense of plenty. It means that a number is mentioned but no definite quantity is meant. The purpose of saying
Water for Immortality (2014-03-16 22:24:30)
What really the youth, the children need is water for immortality. Sure by this expression we do not mean to say that you should read hundreds of story and other books in order to find a clue as to the whereabouts of the fountain of the water for immortality, to go there, and fill jars with that desirable water for your dear ones and for yourself. No, you do not need to take such a trouble, for you can get that invaluable water by taking the Holy Qur'an out of the bookshelf, and urging your children to read that Divine Book of eternal salvation, and of course you should make it an obligatory
SomeEthical (Akhlaq) Points on Interacting with your Child (Part 4) (2014-03-16 22:23:25)
Stories are a useful and important method of encouraging good qualities and characteristics, and discouraging bad ones, such as the rights of friends, faith, etc. The Noble Qur'an uses this method to do the same as mentioned in Surat Yusuf, Verse 111: لَقَدْ كَانَ فِي قَصَصِهِمْ عِبْرَةٌ لِّأُولِي الأَلْبَابِ "There is certainly a moral in their accounts for those who possess intellect."‌ It is important to keep the following in mind when selecting stories: a. They should mention Allah in some form or the other, and be narrated with
Training-Through Deeds, Not Just Talk (Part 1) (2014-03-16 22:22:16)
Most parents think that oral instructions and occasional talk about dos and don'ts is sufficient for good upbringing of children. They presume that the upbringing of the child is thus taken care of and they do not have to do anything about the upbringing of the child concerning other walks of life. This is why such parents do not feel any need to think of the upbringing till the child is a tiny tot. They say that the child is still a babe and is incapable of understanding anything about upbringing. When the child comes to the age of understanding they give a thought to its upbringing. It is th
Some Ethical (Akhlaq) Points on Interacting with your Child (Part 5) (2014-03-16 22:20:58)
Try not to quarrel, especially in front of the child, as this trouble them greatly and affects their personality. 32. Children have a particular fear of the word death, especially death of their mother or father. Therefore, where it is not necessary, don't speak constantly of your death, or the like. However, do teach your child the truth about death, clearly and calmly and without eliciting fear. 33. Find out about your child's talents and develop these as much as possible. 34. In terms of wordly aspects, do not over-saturate your child so that they go on the wrong path, nor under do it, a
Baby from the Eagle’s Nest (Part 2) (2014-03-16 22:16:29)
But of course, as soon as the servants had passed, Gretchen and Nestor had become themselves again, and run further along. Then they heard the three footmen coming again. Gretchen took out the next scroll. For Transformation to a Marble Shrine, it said. "Hold my hand," she said. Nestor held her hand tight and said, "If you never leave me, I will never leave you." "I will never leave you," said Gretchen, then recited the words on the scroll. As soon as the words were out of her mouth, she became a white marble shrine, and Nestor became a silver bell hanging above it. Again the servants ran
Islamic Republic of Iran, an Islamic Popular System (2014-03-10 19:59:11)
(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - The teachings of the Holy Qur'an and the hadith of Prophet Mohammad (SAWA) and his Ahl-al-Bayt reveal that the Islamic government is established through the votes and will of people and that no system of governance can materialize without the will of the masses. Meanwhile, the status of people's resolve in the political system of Islam can be explained in two categories: First and foremost, governance and leadership in Islam is a heavy responsibility rather than a privilege. A person who has assumed the leadership of the society should be accountable for his deeds an
The birth of Jesus Christ: A symbol of love and tolerance (2014-03-10 19:56:07)
The birth of Christ is an occasion we celebrate, since Christ (p.) is one of Allah's messengers, through whom the power of God, the most Exalted, was manifested and who gave the world a message of love, peace, tolerance and justice.

The True Identity of Women (Part 6) (2014-03-09 00:36:58)
Women in Islam and Islamic Civilization The capacity and capability of women for achieving high spiritual positions In such a world the Holy Prophet (PBUH) raised a daughter who improved so much that the Messenger of God (PBUH) would kiss her hand. Kissing the hand of Fatima Zahra (S.A) must never be interpreted as a sign of the Holy Prophet's (PBUH) fatherly love for her. It is absolutely wrong to think that he would kiss her hand simply because she was his daughter and he loved her. Why would such a great character - whose sense of justice and wisdom originated from divine revelations and d
The True Identity of Women (Part 7) (2014-03-09 00:35:51)
Women: Qur'anic examples of outstanding human beings There have been many discussions about the Islamic view of women and I have spoken in this regard on many occasions. I have repeatedly said that in the Holy Qur'an women have been mentioned as examples of believers and disbelievers. This is an interesting point.Allah the Exalted mentions the names of two women as examples of outstanding and pious human beings - not examples of outstanding and pious women. That is to say, as far as human qualities and spiritual perfection are concerned, when Allah the Exalted wants to mention outstanding exa
Ways Your Kids Can Celebrate Ramadhan without Fasting (2014-03-09 00:34:46)
Even if they don't fast, they can still observe the holiday... Muslim children are not required to fast for Ramadhan until they reach the age of maturity (puberty). Also It is recommended that adolescents who have reached puberty (about 12 -13 years of age) to take part in Ramadhan traditions like prayer and fasting. But what about kids who are younger? How can they celebrate and learn more about Ramadhan without fasting? In many families, younger children enjoy participating and are encouraged to practice their fasting. It is common for a younger child to fast for part of a day, or for one d
Protect Yourself and Your Family from the Fire of Hell (2014-03-09 00:33:45)
A verse in chapter Tahrim places an extremely heavy responsibility on the head of household. If all the people, especially those responsible for their wife and children, paid close attention to this verse, then a large portion of family problems would be solved. There would be no more tension or insecurity in the house and all things would get settled easily. O ye who believe! Save yourselves and your families from a Fire whose fuel is Men and Stones, over which are (appointed) angels stern (and) severe, who flinch not (from executing) the Commands they receive from God, but do (precisely) wh
Lost Balance (2014-03-06 05:36:30)
"It is Allah Who has created the heavens and the earth, and He sends down water from the sky and with it He brings forth crops for your sustenance. And He disposed the ships so that they may sail at sea by His command, and He disposed the rivers for you. He disposed the sun and the moon for you, constant [in their courses], and He disposed the night and the day, and He gave you all that you had asked Him. If you enumerate Allah's blessings, you will not be able to count them. Indeed man is most unfair and ungrateful!" The Holy Qur'an, Ibrahim:32-34)Islam pays a lot of attention to environment.
The Virtues of the Scarf (2014-03-06 05:24:13)
(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - 1. An act of obedience The scarf an act of obedience to Allah and to his prophet (pbuh&hh), Allah says in the Qur'an: ﴾It is not for a believer, man or woman, when Allah and His messenger have decreed a matter that they should have an option in their decision. And whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger, has indeed strayed in a plain error.﴿ (S33:36). Allah also said: ﴾And tell the believing women to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things) and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts, etc) and not to show off their adornment except
Mexican Catholics find God in Islam (2014-03-06 05:25:16)
MEXICO CITY (Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - For almost five centuries Catholicism has been the dominant religion in Mexico. In 1970, Catholics comprised 96.7 percent of Mexico's population. By 2010, that number had fallen to 82.7 percent, according to the Pew Research Center. Most of this change is attributed to growth in other Christian denominations. Evangelicals, Protestants and Jehovah's Witnesses now account for 8 percent of Mexicans who identify with a religion. And a small yet growing group of converts are seeking spiritual salvation in Islam. In fact, Pew estimates Mexico will be home to
Our Prophet (Peace be upon him) Favourite Foods (2014-03-06 05:22:43)
(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - A true Muslim is the one who loves what his Creator Allah Almighty loves and he hates what his Creator hates. Similarly a True Muslim loves Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) and the things he loves and hate the things which Prophet (Peace be upon him) disliked. When it comes to Sunnah Foods or the Foods most liked by Prophet (Peace be upon him) everybody must have a knowledge what foods are most liked by our Prophet (Peace be upon him) and what are the health benefits of these Sunnah Foods? Every food has its own benefits. But there are numerous foods which are
The Relationship between Hope and Success in the Family (2014-03-04 00:53:29)
Everyone looks ahead towards his/her future life either by planning or by day dreaming about what can happen. Human beings live with hope and struggle with hope. A mother feeds her baby with hope. A farmer plants seeds with hope. A young man marries with hope of a happy and prosperous future and independence from his family. A patient who places himself in the hands of a surgeon and takes bitter medicine lives with hope. In short, success and joy in material and intellectual matters is due to hope for the future, because human nature is based on hope. This nature changes when the human devi

This is the spirit and basis of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.   Text :   We have said that man enjoys a sort of innate dignity.
