The Very First Moments of the Prophet’s Hijrah (Migration to Madinah)

Prophet Muhammad and his close companion Abu Bakr were less than three years apart in age.  Both were born into the same Arab tribe, Quraish, but were from different clans.

Most of Prophet Muhammad’s early life was spent in relative poverty while Abu Bakr came from a reasonably well off family.  Both men lived and behaved in a quiet and dignified manner and both men had shunned idolatry all of their lives.

When Prophet Muhammad received his mission to spread the message of Islam, the first man he turned to was his friend Abu Bakr.  Without a moments hesitation, Abu Bakr accepted Islam and began a journey of dedication and love that was to last the rest of his life...

5 Easy Ways to Avoid Skipping Prayer

Even as Muslims, we tend to forget the significance of Salah (prayer) in our lives and let it be overshadowed by our pressing everyday tasks.

Satan tends to whisper in the ears of believers and leads them to view Prayer as a ‘chore’ and consequently, gets them to look towards worldly things to attain contentment and comfort.

The moment one starts to perceive Prayer as a burden and forego it is the moment we accept defeat and hand over the victory to Satan. Therefore, no amount of emphasis laid on Prayer can do justice to the purity and sanctity of the act itself.

Prayer holds the key to each and every ailment that plagues mankind, be it social, spiritual or psychological. Being conscious of Allah (SWT) is the true aim of Prayer and it empowers the believer. Prayer is Allah’s (SWT) most favorite form of worship. It creates a direct bond between the Lord and His slave. Offering the five daily prayers every day is an act of loving Allah (SWT) not on your own terms but on His.

The daily prayers essentially make up the very backbone of what it means to be a Muslim – it keeps us high in faith every single day. Hence, every Muslim must incorporate the five daily prayers in his/her everyday life.

Here are 5 easy steps to make sure you do not miss your Salah...

10 Things You Should Know About Prayer in Islam

1. Flexible Timing

Muslims pray five times a day. The timings for the prayer are set to before sunrise, afternoon, late afternoon, sunset, and evening.

When one hears this, they might get the impression that Muslims must stop everything they are doing at an exact time and start praying.

Each prayer has a window which makes it easier for Muslims to pray. For instance, the window for the afternoon prayer might be between 1:00-5:00 pm. This provides Muslims with about four hours to perform the prayer.

2. Shortening/Combining the Prayers


Islam is a religion that has fixed teachings, these teachings cannot be changed, but they are flexible. Islam is a practical religion that takes rare circumstances into consideration. If one is traveling, taking a long exam, performing a surgery, or ill they may shorten or combine their prayers.

The combining and shortening of prayers are done in exceptional circumstances because God does not intend to make things difficult...

The Power of the Thankful Heart

Thankfulness is a word that – along with gratitude – means praise and exaltation, and herein lies its worth and merit.

What is important is that the tongue utters gratitude while feeling it in the heart, and acknowledging from deep inside that God, as the source of every good bestowed, deserves all thanks that is sent...

Thanks to Prophet Muhammad, Women Were Liberated

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was born into a society where women were treated cruelly.

He came and stopped all of that, giving women rights and freedoms.

How Your Thoughts Influence Your Spirituality

Allah tells us in the Quran that we should leave doubt because most doubt is sinful. (49:12)

Having Beautiful Thoughts and Positivity About Allah

It is essential that we try to instill positive thoughts in ourselves. We have to force ourselves to think positively and be positive. First and foremost we have to have positivity about our Creator. We can never allow ourselves to think negatively of Him.

Allah revealed to us that one of His most important names and characteristics is Ar-Rahman, the All-Compassionate, the One that has created everything from His compassion.

Habib Umar bin Hafiz explained in a recent talk that Allah’s compassion is the essence of creation and all created things. There is a constant flow of His compassion to His creation.

This alone should be enough for us to make it impossible to think anything negative about Allah. We have to fully understand that Allah only and always wants the best for us, for all of humanity and for all of creation...

Living Life to the Full

Why do we want the best from life?

What is the driving force behind our actions and decisions?

And what do we expect to happen after this life?

Our Worldview

As Muslims, we believe that this world is not all and everything. We believe that there will be something after our death. And we believe in Paradise. We do not believe that it is all over and done and that after our death there is only non-existence. And we believe in a divine force. We believe in Allah.

However, at the same time, we live in societies that have forgotten that there is more to this life than just this life. We live in societies that do not want to think about death, where people only want to enjoy and live the moment and do not care about tomorrow.

Our Islamic worldview also stresses the importance of making use of every moment...

5 Inspiring Reasons to Be Content

1.       Be Happy with What You Have; it’s Healthy!

Christopher Peterson,  PhD of the University of Michigan studied optimism’s link to health for over 20 years and showed that optimistic people have a stronger immune system than their negative counterparts.

2.      Appreciate Details for Consistent, Long-term Happiness

Instead of feeling super sad each time something goes wrong, you can be disappointed but at the same time determined to make the best of it.

Learn to appreciate the little things. Think about the small things you enjoy, for example looking out of the window to the trees or taking a walk with a beloved friend, and focus on these things right now. That way, no matter what happens, after dua to Allah, you have a variety of simple joys to help you through...

Positivity is an Act of Resistance – 3 Inspiring Stories

The life of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is what positivity as an act of resistance looks like. This was a man who lost his parents at a very young age; a man who lost six children, his first love, his uncle, and his home.

The Prophet (PBUH) lived and felt deep pain and sadness. But he clung to hope and patience and resisted despair and bitterness. He remained positive as an act of resistance against his enemy.

We learn his story and the trails of other prophets, so we can see how it is done, so we can be inspired by their struggles and victories. And even today, there are people among us who are still being inspired by the prophets. There are still those who practice positivity as an act of resistance...

Tips to Improve Your Patience

As Almighty Allah has enjoined patience, He has also provided some means that lead to it and support it. Whenever Allah ordains something, He grants the necessary help and appoints the way to maintain it.

Indeed, Almighty Allah never inflicts a disease unless He provides its remedy, through which recovery is ensured if He wills. Though difficult for the soul, patience is possible to attain and worthy to strive for.

Two aspects of patience

Patience has two aspects: theory and practice. In these, cures of the heart and the body are found. The theoretical aspect, as well as the practical one, should be present so that the most effective treatment may be facilitated.

The theoretical aspect requires us to get acquainted with the goodness, benefits, bliss, and perfection of the divine obligations as well as the evil and harm of what is forbidden.

When a person adds to this his or her sincere resolution, powerful will, and sense of honor, patience is the result. When this occurs, hardships become of little importance, bitterness turns into pleasure, and agonies transform into joys.

There is a continual struggle between patience and impatience. Both seek victory over the other, but the victory of either side will be ensured only when a person supports one side against the other...

The Prophet’s Remarkable Simplicity and Modesty

Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was characterized by impeccable qualities of simplicity and modesty from which we can learn a lot and improve our lifestyle to a considerable extent if were to follow his Sunnah.

All of us as individuals think of ourselves as being superior to the other. This ultimately gives rise to ego and hence promotes feelings of negativity towards one another.

The Prophet (peace be upon him), despite having a huge followers, was humble to the core and never posed himself as being superior to his companions or any other mankind...

It’s Original Mercy…Not Sin

The Glorious Quran is full of glad tidings with which Almighty God soothes distressed and troubled souls, and nourishes the hearts of believers with hope of guidance and light...

Man should always remember the “original mercy” with which he started his first life in the Garden of Eden, when everything was at his reach and beckon…when he was blessed with everything; even before being tasked with worship…he was even blessed with an honor of being ranked above the angels.

Through this, man will be able to always rise up after fall, he will be able to stick to that divine rope connecting him with his Creator...

The Verse of the Throne – How Great it is!

Verse 255 of chapter Al-Baqarah is known as “the Verse of the Throne” or in Arabic Ayah al-Kursi. This is because it declares:

His throne extends over the heavens and the Earth.

It is recommended for a Muslim to read this verse every night. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) confirmed that whoever reads this verse before going to bed at night will be appointed an angel by Allah for protection and Satan will be unable to approach throughout the night’s sleep.

Also, it is strongly recommended to read this verse after offering each of the five daily obligatory prayers...
