Eid Mubarak to all the Muslims around the world, to the ummah, my brothers and sisters who I love for the sake of Allah.
Taqabbalallahu minna wa minkum (May Allah accept it from you and us).
I pray you all have a beautiful and blessed day. But don’t let it make you forget.
When you are celebrating surrounded by your family and friends; spare a prayer for reverts who broke every fast alone and now spend eid alone. Happiness and celebration can only be truly enjoyed as much as when they are shared with others.
When you are feasting on exquisite and beautiful food, lovingly made for all of the family to enjoy; spare a prayer for the Muslims around the world who struggled to find food to break their fasts with and will certainly find no feast today. Ramadan is not a complete change of their lifestyle for them…

Still on Charity... It is better to seek no publicity in charity. But if it is known there is no harm. If it is for public purposes, it must necessarily be known, and a pedantic show of concealment may itself be a fault. The harm of publicity lies in motives of ostentation. We can better … Continue reading Ramadan: 26th Ramadan, 1438A.H
Still on Charity... Good and evil draw us opposite ways and by opposite motives, and the contrast is well marked out in charity. When we think of doing some real act of kindness or charity, we are assailed with doubts and fear of impoverishment; but evil supports any tendency to selfishness, greed, or even to … Continue reading Ramadan: 25th Ramadan, 1438A.H
IFTAR ORGANISED BY REVIVAL ISLAMIC HERITAGE MOSQUE. @Saki-west LGA, Oyo State, Nigeria. Ramadan: 23rd Ramadan, 1438A.H. "True charity" is like a field with good soil on a high situation. It catches good showers of rain, the moisture penetrates the soil, and yet its elevated situation keeps it well-drained, and healthy favourable conditions increase its output … Continue reading Still on Charity…
Ramadan: 22nd Ramadan, 1438A.H False charity, “to be seen of men,” is really no charity. It is worse, for it betokens a disbelief in Allah and the Hereafter. It is compared to hard barren rock on which by chance has fallen a little soil. Good rain, which renders 'fertile soil more fruitful, washes away the … Continue reading Still on Charity…
Ramadan: 21st Ramadan, 1438A.H A very high standard is set for charity. (1) It must be in the way of Allah. (2) It must expect no reward in this world.

“Refrain from the sin in form (open) and in spirit (secret)", that is to say, a human being is enjoined not only to guard against committing deeds that are explicitly and clearly sinful, but he is also to refrain from entertaining evil thoughts. Sinful deeds should be committed neither publicly nor in private. In other … Continue reading Refrain from Open and Secret Sin
(These believers are) those who turn to Allâh (in repentance), who worship Him, who praise Him, who fast, who bow down (before Him), who prostrate themselves (in Prayer), who enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and who keep the limits set by Allâh. Proclaim to such believers good tidings (of untold gifts … Continue reading GOOD TIDINGS
Yes, you have said it all. Silence is Golden. Jazaki’llahu khair
Today I wanted to share an Arabic proverb which is so simple yet powerful
السكوت على الاحمق جوابه
Literal translation: Silence is an answer to the stupid.
There are some things which, to put it frankly, do not deserve a response. For whatever reason that may be, sometimes people are looking for a reaction of some kind, they may be saying something which they intend to provoke, offend or insult.
Rather than rise to it, silence is the best response. Then you do not say anything which could be held against you, you do nothing wrong in giving a response of silence. Not only that, but it lets that person know that whatever they said, was not appropriate or worthy of giving attention to.
If someone says something rude, hurtful, provoking, manipulative or inappropriate, then that ultimately is something stupid and giving a response will only make that person go…
