Unlock the barakah of Ramadan NOW

With Ramaḍān around the corner, and Rajab upon us, what better way to begin the preparation for this special guest by welcoming its friend? Like any important life-changing event, whether it be marriage, moving house, even something like running a marathon, it is vital that steps are taken to prepare for it. What better way than to begin it now, with the month of Rajab? So great is this month that it is the first of the four great, sacred months. Allāh says in the Qur'ān: “Verily, the number of months with Allāh is twelve months (in a year), so it was

Why does the Qur’an seem incoherent?

  Why does the Qur'an seem incoherent? Every communication has a purpose and an aim. If we read a textbook as an example, we know what the author is trying to get across. In fact, from the very title of the chapter and the introduction, it may be very clear. The author may say, the aim of the chapter is such and such.

A century seemingly filled with daily horrors and devoid of morality, it can sometimes feel unbearably hard to live in; however, wallowing in our

Many people complain that their iman is low and the sweetness of actions that they once tasted as they did when they first started their journey upon the Deen, is no longer there. The prayer has decreased to obligatory ones only, the effort to memorise the Quran is nonexistent. The Quran is only read during the month of Ramadhan. Acts of worships reduced to mechanical actions and now falling into sins is much easier as time goes by. These are all symptoms of weak iman. So what is the solution? One answer is to sit by yourself and think about

Reaching Excellence in Worship

14 Min Read

The best form of worship is when the act is performed with Allah in mind from the beginning until the end. Whilst special attention is given to how actions are performed from an outward perspective, what is often neglected is how we perform those actions from the inward form. Allah says in the Quran: "It is He who created the heavens and the earth in six Days– His rule extends over the waters too – so as to test which of you does best." We notice that that He said "which of you does best" and not "which of you
