Test in Life and our Sincerity

By Dr. Emdad Khan

In Sura Ankabut, Allah swt declares,

29:2 أَحَسِبَ ٱلنَّاسُ أَن يُتْرَكُوٓا۟ أَن يَقُولُوٓا۟ ءَامَنَّا وَهُمْ لَا يُفْتَنُونَ

Do people think once they say, “We believe,” that they will be left without being put to the test?

We all know, Allah swt tested Bilal (R), Khabbab  (R), Sumaya  (R) and so many others.  May Allah be pleased with all of them.

Are we accountable for the Intrusive/Unwanted Thoughts?

A Moment with Our Prophet, Muhammad (S)

By Imam Zijad Delic

Day 260:  Are we accountable for the Intrusive/Unwanted Thoughts?

Ibn Abbas (r) narrated that a man came to the Prophet (S) and said, “O Messenger of Allah, one of us has thoughts within himself/herself, suggesting something that would make him/her rather die than to speak of it.” The Prophet said, “Allah is the greatest, Allah is the greatest, Allah is the greatest! All praise is due to Allah, who has reduced the plot of the Shaitan to the mere whisper.”

عَنْ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ قَالَ جَاءَ رَجُلٌ إِلَى النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فَقَالَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ إِنَّ أَحَدَنَا يَجِدُ فِي نَفْسِهِ يُعَرِّضُ بِالشَّيْءِ لَأَنْ يَكُونَ حُمَمَةً أَحَبُّ إِلَيْهِ مِنْ أَنْ يَتَكَلَّمَ بِهِ فَقَالَ اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي رَدَّ كَيْدَهُ إِلَى الْوَسْوَسَةِ

Khusuf or Kusuf Prayer (the Sun and the Moon Eclipse Prayer)

A Moment with Our Prophet, Muhammad (S)

By Imam Zijad Delic

Day 261: Khusuf or Kusuf Prayer (the Sun and the Moon Eclipse Prayer)

It was narrated by ‘Aisha (r) that the Prophet (S) said, after finishing the Khusuf prayer: “The sun and the moon are two signs of the numerous signs of Allah. They do not eclipse as the sign of death or life (birth) of anyone. So, when you see the eclipse, make du’a to Allah, say Takbir, offer Prayer (Salat al Khusuf) and give Sadaqa.” (Bukhari, Muslim)

إِنَّ الشَّمْسَ وَالْقَمَرَ آيَتَانِ مِنْ آيَاتِ اللَّهِ، لاَ يَنْخَسِفَانِ لِمَوْتِ أَحَدٍ وَلاَ لِحَيَاتِهِ، فَإِذَا رَأَيْتُمْ ذَلِكَ فَادْعُوا اللَّهَ وَكَبِّرُوا، وَصَلُّوا وَتَصَدَّقُوا

By Dr. Emdad Khan

Have we thought of how adults breathe12-16 times per minute to inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide to survive? Adults above 60 breathe up to 28 times per minute.

Breathing to essential to our life. It allows our body to obtain the energy to perform it activities.
