Laughter and Jest of a Mumin (2014-08-23 16:38:01)
A mu'min will have gracefulness on his face even if he is sad at his heart. A person remaining morose all the time is not good. A mu'min must keep a broad forehead, pleasant mien, and good nature. He should also have a good sense of humor. But all this should be in moderation.It is narrated from the Prophet of Islam (S) that excessive jesting puts one to shame and excessive laughter harms ones faith. If a person lies, the radiance of his face diminishes.The Prophet Dawood (as) told to Prophet Sulaiman (as) three things, one of which was, "My Son! Don't laugh much that on the Day of Reckoning o
Laziness in Offering Prayers (2014-08-23 16:37:19)

Mu'min should not be tardy about offering prayers and should fulfill this obligation with humility and fear of Allah.Imam Ja'far As-Sadiq (as) has said that when one thinks of performing a good deed, then he should hasten to accomplish it; lest Satan diverts his mind and the deed is not done!

Beware of the Curse of the Oppressed (2014-08-23 16:36:37)
The Prophet of Allah (S) says, "Beware of the curse of the oppressed that it goes beyond the skies and Allah looks at him with kindness and says, ‘Raise his prayer, I shall accept it!'"The Prophet (S) also said, "Prevent yourself from your father's curse. It is sharper than the spear!"It has come in the traditions that four types of prayer are not rejected by Allah::1. A father's prayer for his son. 2. Prayer of the oppressed against the oppressor. 3. Prayer of the person who is on the minor pilgrimage (Umrah). 4. The prayer of a person who is fasting.It is said that the prayers of five
The Benefits of Mu’anaqah or Embrace (2014-08-23 16:35:47)
Imam Ja'far As-Sadiq (as) says, "When two Mu'mins embrace each other, the Allah's Blessing will be on them! When they embrace each other only to please Allah, without any worldly motives, the angels say, ‘all your sins have been pardoned! Repeat the act of embrasure!' When two Mu'mins start speaking, the angels responsible for recording the deeds of the people ask one other to stay away from them that perhaps they desire to exchange secrets and Allah wishes to keep them from others hearing!" The narrator asked: Do the angels not record these exchanges despite Allah observing, No person u
About the Sufferings of the Pious in the World (2014-08-23 16:26:37)
It is narrated from Imam Ja'far As-Sadiq (as) that the prophet of Islam (S) said: For great suffering, man gets equally rewarded by Allah. When Allah considers a person His friend, he puts him to severe test too. If the person confronts those hardships with patience and forbearance, he would receive Allah's Help. If the person doesn't resign to the Will of Allah, his suffering will be the more.Abdallah bin Bakr asked Imam Ja'far As-Sadiq (as), "Can a pious Mu'min ever suffer from leprosy and other serious ailments?" The Imam (as) replied, "Hardships are only for testing the Mu'mins." Then he a
Nigeria Muslims Urge Caution over Hijab Scare (2014-08-22 04:22:27)
"It is not surprising (if young Muslim ladies are avoiding hijab) given the context in which we are now where you see females being involved in attaching bombs to their body and many of them dying in the process," Dr Abubakar Mu'azu, a known researcher on the insurgency in the country's northeast, told "Hijab which ordinarily should be a dress of modesty and fear of God in the human mind is now being abused by evil ones in the society," he added. Dr Mu'azu was commenting on a new phenomenon in which women in north Nigeria's largest city Kano have been abandoning their traditiona
Children’s Rights on Parents (2014-05-19 01:25:25)
Children's Rights on ParentsCommentary: in the above hadith (tradition) only the saying of Adhan has been mentioned, but in another tradition reported by Imam Hussain, the Prophet [SAW] prescribed the saying of adhan in the right ear and Iqamah in the left ear of the new-born child, and also mentioned its auspiciousness. He said that on account of it, the child remained safe from infantile epilepsy. As these traditions show, the primary claim of a child on his parents is that his ears, and through his ears, his head and heart are made aquatinted with the name of the Almighty God and His Onene

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.

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.

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.

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)

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."

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
