Tips for Happiness in Daily Life (2015-01-20 18:55:58)
Daily life can be made happier. It is a matter of choice. It is our attitude that makes us feel happy or unhappy. It is true, we meet all kinds of situations during the day, and some of them may not be conductive to happiness. We can choose to keep thinking about the unhappy events, and we can choose to refuse to think about them, and instead, relish the happy moments. All of us constantly go through various situations and circumstances, but we do not have to let them influence our reactions and feelings. If we let outer events influence our moods, we become their slaves. We lose our freedom.
How to prevent and treat nail biting: (2015-01-20 18:55:10)
Habits Similar to stereotypic movements, a habit is a learned behaviour that a person repeats so often that he or she begins to do it without even thinking about it. Certain habits can be helpful but some may seem to serve no particular purpose. • Helpful habits - brushing teeth before going to bed or buckling your seatbelt when getting into a car. • Habits with no purpose - hair twirling, thumb sucking, nail biting... etc. Some habits are annoying, and some can cause distress or become the focus of teasing. Still others may have harmful effects. For example, thumb sucking, whic
Respect for the Mosque (2015-01-19 21:35:57)
It should be remembered that Allah has termed the Mosques as his homes. Therefore, they are places where people can seek nearness to Allah. Otherwise, Allah is not restricted to any home or place. In comparison with other places, the mosque has more Favor and Blessings of Allah. Therefore it is better to offer the mandatory prayers in a mosque, preferably with a congregation. Similarly giving the Zakat (Religious Tax) in public is preferable. But the Tahajjud (late night prayer) is to be offered in loneliness.Reliable sources narrate from Imam Muhammad Baqir (A.S) that the Prophet (PBUH) asked

Extremist Salafism (2015-01-18 21:44:00)
Salafism has been introduced by some so-called radical Sunni theologians who have wrong understanding of thoughts of theologians such as Ibn Taymiyyah and Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah. Extremist Salafism is a deviatory and shallow cult that stands poles apart from the spirit of Islam's life-giving teachings, has spewed nothing but discord, destruction, ruin and corruption among the Islamic Ummah. This cult has a weak belief base and offers shallow interpretations from Qur'an and narrations. To rule and expand their evil and dark domination, imperialism and colonialism has always sought to pave grou
Belgian Far-Right Party Seeks Headscarf Ban on Drivers (2015-01-18 21:40:07)
The far-right anti-Islam Flemish Interest Party in Belgium has forwarded a bill to Parliament forbidding women with headscarves from driving vehicles. The bill, presented by the Flemish Interest Party's former president Filip Dewinter on Friday, states that wearing a headscarf "reduces a driver's ability to see and hear while driving". Dewinters argued that, as it is forbidden for drivers to talk or text on the phone and to eat food while driving under safety measures, it should also be forbidden to wear the headscarf, which restricts drivers' vision to the side. The Leader of the Dutch far

Contentment and effort (2015-01-12 18:55:07)
Those who consider wealth as a source of prosperity are entangled in greed to earn more money on the one hand, and on the other, they take refuge in avarice to keep money for a longer period, prevent its wastage and finally try to enjoy more. But, as a matter of fact, on ground realities the picture is totally different. In fact, stingy persons suffer from pain, strain and stress. They are wealthy, but mentally they are not ready to spend it in a proper manner. Hence they create misery for themselves. It is clear that contentment does not mean laziness and indolence. Contentment and effort ar

What were the propagation methods of the religion of Islam?Concise answer Propagation means conveying a message and since the mission of all divine prophets particularly the holy prophet of Islam (S) was to bring humanity forth from darkness into light, propagation enjoys significant importance as a means to convey God's message to His servants.

On the 18th Zilhajj, the prophet (S.A.W) arrived at Ghadir-al-Khum, a barren land on the outer skirts of Johfa Valley. Here he ordered a halt, having received the following revelation. "O' Prophet! Proclaim what has been sent down to you from your Lord; and if you do not, you would not accomplish the mission all; and God will defend you against men; verily God guides not the unbelieving people".

Her sister, Ms. Zainab Al-Khawaja, a women's rights and social media

The Hijab of Men (2014-12-29 21:47:19)
It is not uncommon for non-Muslims and even many Muslims to associate the Islamic commandments on Hijab with females, even though Islam has ordained Hijab for both men and women. In fact, many of us would be surprised to note that Allah states in the Holy Qur'an:"Tell the believing men to cast down their looks and guard their private parts; that is purer for them; surely Allah is Aware of what they do. And tell the believing women that they cast down their looks and guard their private parts and do not display their ornaments except what appears thereof...." (24:30-31) Indeed, before addressin
The Philosophy and Secrets of Prayer (2014-12-29 21:45:57)
After the first verse, the worshipper reads: All praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Universe. Thus, he establishes that every praise and extol is for Allah, the Exalted, because He, the Glorified, is the Lord of the Universe. Every perfection and beauty is a manifestation of His upbringing. When the worshipper reads this verse and sees the signs of Allah's Lordship and nurture in his own self and the world, the heaven, the earth, the minerals, the plants, the animals and the human beings, he realizes that the praise is relevant to Him. The presence of the signs of His nurture in all creation
Comparison of Muslim and Christian Prayers (2014-12-28 22:46:04)
We will mention some examples of Christian worship in comparison with what we have mentioned about Islamic worship. The Bible says: And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. "This, then, is how you should pray: "‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not
