Reform Your Character

If, even in the blessed and sanitised atmosphere of Ramadan, we do not reform our character and conduct then we must ask ourselves: ‘When?’

Kind Soul

Exterior beauty, without the depth of a kind soul and a beautiful heart, is merely decoration.
Maulana Imtiyaz Sidat

Dates for Suhur

It is Sunna & rewarding to have dates in the suhur meal also. "Blessed is the suhur meal of a believer which consists of dates."
[Abu Dawud]

Season for Righteousness

"Ramadan is a season for righteousness for all those who wish to draw nearer to Allah & have their sins forgiven"
Shaykh Zulfiqar

Beauty of Ramadhan

Fasting is the Duty of Ramadhan while Tilawat of the Quran is the Beauty of Ramadhan
(Mufti A.K.Hoosain - South Africa)

Heavenly Food

In Ramadan we should deny our overindulged bodies their earthly gratification and instead provide heavenly food for our malnourished souls.

The body is earthly and its nourishment comes from the earth. The spirit, however, is celestial and its nourishment comes only from Heaven.

Poetry on Love of Allah

A few nights ago,
Hazrat Ji (Shaykh Zulfiqar Ahmad) DB recited this heart touching poetry about love of Allah Swt:
وَاللَّهِ مَا طَلَعَتْ شَمْسٌ وَلَا غَرُبَتْ إِلَّا وَ أَنْتَ فِىْ قَلْبِىْ وَ وَسْوَاسِـــيْ
By Allah the sun never rose or set 
but You were my heart and in my thoughts.
وَلَا جَلَسْتُ إِلَى قَوْمٍ أُحَدِّثُهُــْم إِلَّا وَ أَنْتَ حَدِيْثِيْ بَيْنَ جَلَّاسِــيْ
And I never sat conversing with any people, But You were the subject of my conversation In the midst of my comrades.
وَلَا ذَكَرْتُكَ مَحْزُوْناً وَ لَا فَرِحًا إلِاَّ وَ حُبُّـكَ مَقْـرُوْنٌ بِأَنْفَاسِـيْ
And I never mentioned You in joy or sorrow, But love for You was mingled with my breath.
وَلَا هَمَمْتُ بِشُرْبِ الْمَاءِ مِنْ عَطَشٍ إِلَّا رَأَيْتُ خَيَالاً مِنْكَ فِي الْكَـــأسِ
And I never resolved to drink water, when I was athirst, But I saw an image of You in the cup.
وَلَوْ قَدَرْتُ عَلى الْإِتيَانِ جِئْتُـكُمْ سَعْيًا عَلَى الْوَجْهِ أَوْ مَشْيًا عَلَى الرَّأسِ
And were I able to come I would have visited You, Crawling on my face or walking on my head

Being Happy

Being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect. It means that you've decided to look beyond the imperfections and be grateful to Allah for the blessings you DO have.

The Sincere Muslim

In an age where arrogance, immodesty, brashness and sometimes outright disrespect can be often looked upon fondly by some....

....the sincere Muslim remains firm in the knowledge of what characteristics please his creator.

How do you see your Sins?

Ibn Mas'ud:
"A Mu'min sees his sins as a mountain above his head, 
A munafiq sees his sins as a fly sat on his nose, & he blew it away."

Significance of 15th Sha'ban

According tho the reliable scholars of the Ahlus Sunnah, the fifteenth of Sha’ban, which is commonly referred to as “Laylatul Bara-ah” (refer: Tafsir Razi and Ruhul ma’ani, surah 44. Ayah:3) is indeed one of the significant nights in the Islamic calendar.

Ibnul Haj (rahimahullah) states:

“The salaf (pious predecessors) would sanctify this night and prepare themselves for it in advance”

(Al-Madkhal, vol.1 pg.299)

Imam ‘Ata ibn Yasar (rahimahullah) –the great Tabi’i of Madinah- said:

“After Laylatul-Qadr, there is no other night in the year that is more virtuous than the middle (15th) night of Sha’ban”

(Lataif al-Ma’arif, pg.264 & Sunan Sa’eed ibn Mansur; refer: Husnul Bayan, pg.11)

Some people, due to being ill-informed refute the auspiciousness of this occasion.

I have prepared a detailed article on this which I have posted on my blog ( In this article you will find sufficient information on this issue insha Allah. See it here.

And Allah Ta’ala knows best,
