I Forgive Those Who Hurt Me

Allah tells us in the Quran, which Muslims believe is the word of God, that He is the Most Forgiving, the Most Merciful.

Allah has a number of names that imply different aspect of His Forgiving nature. He is called Al-Ghafur (the Most Forgiving) and Al-Afuww (the One Who heals and restores our honor).

He is also called Al-Tawwab (the Acceptor of repentance). This word has the sense of “oft-returning”, which implies that Allah accepts our repentance again and again. We make mistakes and when we become conscious of it, we repent to Allah, and Allah accepts our repentance. Then again, we do wrong and repent to Him, seeking His forgiveness, and He forgives.

Allah is called Al-Rahman and Al-Raheem too, which mean “the All-Merciful” and “the All-Compassionate” respectively. The two words indicate that Allah is ever merciful to all of His creations, and most particularly to His obedient servants. Indeed Allah’s mercy is unbounded and His love is infinite...

How to Honor and Respect Parents after Their Death?

I
slam is a religion of justice and compassion that teaches morality and forbids bad conduct in society.

Special merits have been accorded to the elderly; they are treated with respect and dignity. Muslims are urged to honor them and this is especially true when it comes to the treatment of one’s parents.

Although death may take us at any age, parents are often elderly and as such require special care and attention.

Even though the rigors of old age may cause parents to be demanding, impatient or petulant, a Muslim is still obligated to treat then with kindness and to look after them lovingly.

God linked honouring parents to the command to believe in Him Alone...

Keeping a Virtuous Tongue at All Times

There is never any excuse to engage in backbiting others, even when they speak ill of you and even if they are doing wrong.

The Pious Predecessors and the eminent scholars of the past exercised the greatest vigilance in avoiding backbiting, even in the most trying situations...

Keeping Calm is a Skill

A man might look calm and composed on the outside, but be a raging volcano within.

If you can keep calm when you are angry, then you have genuine self-control.

We should always be just and balanced in what we choose to say, whether we are happy or upset, whether we like what is happening or detest it. Calm manifests itself in our tone of voice, in the words we choose, in our gestures, our facial expressions, and our deportment.

We should keep in mind that our worship is not restricted to prayer, fasting, and the pilgrimage. Life itself is worship. We need to conduct ourselves accordingly...

Love: A Necessity of Faith

Islam combines the two. God is love.

God calls Himself Al-Wadud a superlative term for love which has been translated as the “One who is full of loving kindness”.

Religiosity should be a personal and emotional feeling of connectedness to the Creator. God says in the Quran:

{Those who have believed and whose hearts are assured by the remembrance of Allah. Unquestionably, by the remembrance of Allah hearts are assured.} (13:28)

Likewise, In Islam, education is vital. The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:

“Seeking knowledge is an obligation upon every Muslim.” (Ibn Majah)

So there is a lifelong obligation to continue to acquire knowledge. In fact, the first verses of Quran revealed to Prophet Muhammad had to do with gaining knowledge...

Becoming Better Muslims

Whether or not people accept the fact that God exists, troubles and tragedies often mean He is the first one they should turn to.

In a simple way, Islam answers that need of men and women. Without popes or priests interceding on their behalf, Islam teaches that we can all bow down to our Creator and speak to Him directly. As Muslims, we should never forget this simplicity of Islam.

It is when we do forget it in talking to others, that we can make it sound like any other organized religion. And modern men and women are not too fond of organized religion. There comes a point, though, when we need to deepen our faith. Those new to Islam want to grow in their faith. They want to become better and better all the time.

It is relatively easy to declare the words of “Shahadah” (testimony of faith: that there is no God but Allah, and that Muhammad is His Messenger), but it takes the rest of one’s life to live up to those words.

If we don’t progress from that first day when we accepted Islam, then we have not made much progress in becoming better Muslims, have we? This deepening comes both in terms of knowledge and in the way we behave...
