Feed Update

I am extremely sorry to all those who had subscribed to my blog. For all those who had subscribed, they would not have got any update for almost a year now (this applies to even those who subscribed using Facebook and other social networking sites). I just discovered yesterday as I was making a fan page on Facebook that my feedburner feed's size limit of 512 KB had been exceeded. Therefore, no update after the post "Celebrating Eid Milad-un-Nabi" had been sent to the subscribers. Therefore, I have posted the following list of blog posts, that subscribers might have missed, and linked them to their respective posts so that if anyone clicks it, he'll be redirected there. I have changed the settings of my feed to display a maximum of 7 posts. Therefore, Inshallah, you will be receiving updates from now on.

Also note that, Inshallah, in about a week, I will change my feed url from to . All those who manually added the feed url to their reader would have to change it. For those who either subscribed to email updates or subscribed using Feedburner, their feed url would automatically be updated when I update, so they won't have to change anything.

Milads - A Common Bid'ah

Rabi'ul Awwal has started and the season for one of the most common bid'ahs, milads, have also started. Let us take a look at the details of this bid'ah.


Q.) What is the truth about Milad? On the 12th of Rabi-Awwal Milad-un-Nabi is celebrated with great fanfare and Milad meetings are arranged. What is the ruling of Shariah regarding that?

Are we planning for the Present or the Future?

The dark sky encompassed the whole street except for the light being emitted by my bike's headlight. I was hurrying to the mosque when, suddenly..., I heard a loud clicking sound and a sigh of pain.

Important Update - Letter from Aafia Saddiqui - My Dead Nation

I recently posted an article titled Letter from Aafia Saddiqui - My Dead Nation. However, I was unsure of the authenticity of the letter and since I did not want an inauthentic article to be spread, I have removed it.

Letter from Aafia Saddiqui - My Dead Nation

Celebrating Valentines Day? Valentines Day not for Muslims

Allah has chosen for us Islam as our religion and He will not accept any other religion from anyone, as He Almighty Says (what means):
“And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers.” [Quran 3:85]
Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention )told us that some of his followers would follow non-Muslims in some of their rituals and customs, as in the Hadeeth (Prophetic narration) narrated by Abu Sa’eed Al-Khudri may Allaah be pleased with him:
“You will certainly follow the ways of those who came before you, span by span and cubit by cubit, until even if they were to enter a lizard’s hole, you would follow them.”
We (listeners) said, “O Messenger of Allaah, (do you mean) the Jews and Christians?”
He sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention )said: “Then who else?”
What the Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention ) spoke of has indeed come to pass and has become widespread in recent times, in many of the Muslim countries.
Many of the Muslims follow non-Muslims in many of their customs and ways of behaving, and imitate them in some of their rituals and in celebrating their holidays.The matter has been made even worse by the opening up of mass communications between peoples, whereby the rituals and customs of the non-Muslims are now transmitted with the glamorous adornment of sound and image from their countries into the Muslim countries, via satellite TV and the World Wide Web (Internet). Many Muslims have been deceived by their glamour.
In recent years, a new phenomenon has spread among the Muslim youth – males and females alike – which does not bode well. This is manifested in their imitation of non-Muslims in their celebration of the Valentine’s Day, which has led the scholars to explain the rulings of Sharee’ah (Islamic Law) concerning that, out of sincerity towards Allaah, His Messenger sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention )the leaders of the Muslims and their common folk, so that Muslims may have a clear understanding of this issue and so that they will not fall into that which will undermine the ‘Aqeedah (belief) with which Allaah has blessed them.
