  • Pandemonium in Sri Lankan parliament as MPs hurl books at speaker
    Mahinda Rajapaksa supporters throw books, chilli paste and water bottles at speaker to disrupt second confidence vote.

    Sri Lanka's parliament descended into chaos for a second day on Friday as legislators supporting newly appointed Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa threw books, chilli paste and water bottles at the speaker to try to disrupt a second no-confidence motion.

    The vote went ahead anyway and for a second time, legislators turned against Rajapaksa and his new government, possibly opening the way for the return of Ranil Wickremesinghe as prime minister.

    Wickremesinghe was removed by President Maithripala Sirisena late last month and replaced with Rajapaksa, plunging the country into a constitutional crisis.

  • Points to assist a declining marriage
      Points to assist a declining marriage   The Hadith questions the manhood of a person who beats his wife up during the day and derives pleasure from her during the night. Good marriages require patience, kindness, humility, sacrifice, empathy, love, understanding, forgiveness, and hard work. Following these basic principles should help any marriage to improve. The essence of them all can be summed up in one sentence: Always treat your spouse the way you would like to be treated.   Amidst busy schedules and tasks on the parts of both women and men, Muslim husbands and wives tend to forget the real reasons behind marriage and likewise the rights of each other. Subsequently, they deprive themselves, their mates and their children of the happiness and tranquility that is the bedrock of a successful family. This unbalanced vision towards...
  • 11 Signs of Kibr (Pride/Arrogance)
    read time: 2 min The Prophet ﷺ said, “No one who has an atom’s-weight of Pride in his heart will enter Paradise.” A man said, “O Messenger of Allah, what if a man likes his clothes and his shoes to look good?” He ﷺ said, “Allah is Beautiful and loves beauty, Pride means rejecting the truth and looking down on people”(Sahih Muslim). Commentary: The word or the name for arrogance/pride in Arabic is ‘Kibr’. This is the inner quality of pride. The name of the outward quality is ‘Takabbur’ which means arrogance. Arrogance is a blameworthy characteristic which is the feature of Iblees and his followers in this world, those on whose hearts Allah Ta'ala has placed a seal.   11 Signs of a Person Having Pride/Arrogance:   ▪ He doesn’t like others to have what he has ▪ He cannot avoid anger ▪ He cannot avoid...

துல் ஹிஜ்ஜாவும் ஹஜ்ஜுப் பெருநாளும்

by ash sheikh Agar Mohamed (Naleemi)

பெருநாள் தினத்தை மறுமையோடு ஒப்பிட முடியும். மறுமை நாளில் மனிதர்கள் எவ்வாறு இருப்பார்கள் என்பதனை அல்குர்ஆன் நமக்குச் சொல்லித் தருகிறது.

“அந்நாளில் சில முகங்கள் மகிழ்ச்சியினால் இலங்கிக் கொண்டிருக்கும். சிரித்தவையாகவும் மகிழ்வுடையதாகவும் இருக்கும். ஆனால், அந்நாளில் வேறு சில முகங்கள் மீது புழுதி படிந்திருக்கும். அவற்றைக் கருமை இருள் மூடியிருக்கும்.”                
(ஸூரா அபஸ: 3841)

பெருநாள் தினங்களிலும் சில முகங்கள் இப்படித்தான் இருக்கும். துல்ஹிஜ்ஜா மாதத்தின் முதல் பத்து நாட்களிலும் நோன்பு நோற்று, நற்கருமங்கள் செய்து, இபாதத்தில் ஈடுபட்டவர்களுக்கு இந்த ஹஜ்ஜுப் பெருநாள் மகிழ்ச்சிகரமானதாக இருக்கும். நற்கருமங்கள் செய்தவர்கள் இந்நாளில் மலர்ந்த முகத்தோடு இருப்பார்கள். அவர்களின் இன்முகங்களில் புன்னகை பூத்திருக்கும்.......

தஃவா என்பது, இஸ்லாத்தின் அடிப்படைத்  தூதை முன்வைக்கின்ற தேநேரத்தில், அவ்வக்கால சவால்களுக்கு முகம் கொடுப்பதும் அவ்வக்கால பிரச்சினைகளை அடையாளம் கண்டு அவற்றுக்கான தீர்வை வழங்குவதுமாகும். இந்த வகையில் உலக நிலைவரத்தை வைத்துப் பார்க்கின்றபோது பொதுவாகவும் இலங்கை சூழலை வைத்துப் பார்க்கின்றபோது குறிப்பதாகவும் இக்கால எமது தஃவாவில் இஸ்லாத்தின் அடிப்படையான  செய்தி முக்கியத்துவம் பெற வேண்டிய தேவையும் அவசியமும் இருப்பதுபோல முன்னுரிமை பெற வேண்டிய மற்றும் சில அம்சங்கள் உண்டு. அவ்வாறு முக்கியத்துவம் பெற வேண்டிய மூன்று அம்சங்களை அடையாளப்படுத்தலாம்.

ஒன்று, சமூக ஒற்றுமையின் முக்கியத்துவத்தை வலியுறுத்துவது.
இரண்டாவது, இனங்களுக்கிடையான சகவாழ்வின் அவசியத்தை வலியுறுத்துவது.
மூன்றாவதாக இளம் தலைமுறையினனை பண்பாடு உள்ளவர்களாகவும் ஒழுக்கமுள்ளவர்களாகவும் வளர்த்தெடுப்பதன் அவசியத்தை முன்வைப்பது.

ALL praise is due to Allaah, and may He render our Prophet Muhammad safe from every derogatory thing, and exalt his mention, and the mention of his household and Companions.

Ibn Abbaas, may Allah be pleased with him, reported that the Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) said: There are no days during which good deeds are more beloved to Allah than these days; meaning the first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah. They inquired: Not even Jihad in the cause of Allah? He said: Not even Jihad in the cause of Allah, unless one goes out for Jihad sacrificing both his life and property and returning with neither.

As the dawn of Ramadhaan approaches, offering us glimpse of its golden rays of purity, every Muslim around the world prepares to experience the warm ambience which only this month can bring. From Suhoor to Iftaar to Taraaweeh Salaah, Ramadhaan brings together brothers, sisters, parents and children. In order to derive the utmost benefit from the sacred month of Ramadhaan, it is crucial to recognize the spiritual significance and importance of this month. Fasting during this month should be only for ALLAH TA'ALA, and that HE will give the reward for it, for the reward of ALLAH, the Bountiful and Munificent, is greater and vaster than anyone could imagine, Subhaan-ALLAH!

The power of science is so amazing that it pushes religious people to take one of two paths when it comes to their beliefs about the world and what their sacred texts have to say about it. Either one has to both reject what we learned through the scientific method and have faith that what they believe to be Revelation is the Truth and everything else is the devil’s deception, or they relegate what they see in their sacred texts to be allegories to teach us life’s lessons. Many followers of the Jewish and Christian traditions seem to have fallen entrapped into one of these two paths. We now have two main encampments: young earth creationists, or sacred scripture allegorists. There are even an increasing number of believers who have been taken by powerful scientific theories, such as that of evolution, and have now begun to reject the literality of the story of Adam and Eve as a real event. Unfortunately, Muslims are increasingly joining their Abrahamic brothers and sisters as they try to cope with how to deal with the seemingly outward contradiction between religion and science.


15 Tips to Raising Great Children

Children are easily influenced by their surroundings. These days, it is extremely difficult to expose our children to an ideal Islamic environment given the influences from media, friends and even other members of the family.

With television, radio, Internet and forms of media mostly touting un-Islamic values, it is up to parents and adults close to the children to set the correct example.

It is impossible to shield our children from all the negative forces that can shape their minds and, ultimately, their behavior.


Understanding the Qur’an: Some Initial Conditions

Featured Islamic Articles

User Rating: / 4

By Amin Ahsan Islahi

Cleanliness and ablution are the initial conditions for the prayer. One can obtain its true blessings only if one fulfils these initial conditions before offering it. Similarly, there are some initial conditions for understanding the Qur’an. One can be blessed with this understanding only if one tries to grasp the Holy Book after fulfilling these conditions. This writer will now attempt to explain these:

Purity of Intent

Purity of intent is the foremost of all conditions. It means that one should read the Qur’an only to obtain guidance from it and not for any other purpose. If a person has some other purpose in mind, he will not only remain deprived of the blessings of the Qur’an, but he may also get further away from the Qur’an than he formerly was. If he studies the Qur’an in order to be an exegete so that he may get some fame and mundane interest, he might achieve this target but he will never get to the true comprehension of the Qur’an. Similarly, if a person studies the Qur’an to notch up some arguments for his preconceived notions, he may succeed in getting some distorted testimonies for them, but at the cost of understanding the Qur’an.


Intelligence: Is it in the brain or the heart?

Featured Islamic Articles

User Rating: / 2

By Mohamed Ghilan

Contrary to what we know now, the “organ of intellect” was not always known to be the brain. In fact, before the matter was settled, there were two competing views regarding where the intellect is in the body: the brain or the heart. The most famous of those on one side was Aristotle who was pushing for a cardiocentric (heart-centered) model, which argued that the heart is in fact the organ of intelligence (Frampton, 1991). In his observations, Aristotle noticed that poking the brain of an injured person did not induce pain. He therefore reasoned that the brain is not engaged in perception of any kind. Had he known about pain receptors, I’m sure he would’ve done a few more tests.


Miswak – A great sunnah and a healthy habit

By Nawal Aqil

Islam is a complete way of life and therefore teaches us good manners too. Cleanliness in Islam is given a lot of importance according to a famous Hadith which says, “Purification is half of faith.” (Muslim). It not only teaches us personal hygiene, but also cleanliness of our houses and neighborhoods.

Allah has indeed created man in the best form and granted him beauty, and so he wishes to see His slave in the best form as well. “Verily Allah is beautiful and loves beauty.” (Muslim).

The use of siwak or miswak holds great importance in Islam. Apart from keeping the body and limbs clean Islam teaches special cleanliness for the mouth in order to keep away from diseases and also to make ones breath pleasant so that it doesn’t become a cause of discomfort to others. Since teeth are the doors of our mouth they should always be clean and shinning as it adds beauty to a Muslims smile and face. 


Understanding Islamic Prophetic medicine in light of eastern medicine

Featured Islamic Articles

by Dr. Rehan Zaidi

Amazing is our confidence in Modern medicine. Amazing still is how illness can change all that confidence quite quickly. Spending billions of dollars annually on alternative health care in the United States, the sheer number of people becoming disillusioned with the current state of medical care is driving medical institutions to loosen up on their conservative medical ideology.

Johns Hopkins, the Mayo Clinic, MD Anderson, most other leading hospitals, all have begun integrating complementary therapies, even if nothing more than treating with Chinese needles. Acupuncture, like most Eastern therapies, used in a purely Modern medical fashion is limited in benefit compared to its 4000 year old traditional method, but at least Western medicine is recognizing the East can contribute a thing or two. Eastern countries, surprisingly, are doing the exact opposite: As the West proudly presents its newfound respect in ancient therapies, the East shyly brushes its medical traditions under the rug.
