Enter or leave your house with your right foot first, as it was the tradition of the Prophet. Imaam Abul Ala Hasan ibn Ahmad al-Hamazani, a great scholar of Hadith of his time, was so keen on applying this Sunnah to the extent that if someone entered his house with their left foot first, he would ask them to go out and re-enter with their right foot first. He was so much respected that the Sultan of the day would visit him at school and sit in front of him as a student. At one occasion, he told the Sultan to exit with his right foot first and walk on the right side of the road.
When entering or leaving a house, do not push the door violently, or slam it shut, or leave it to close by itself wildly. Such actions stand in contrast to the gracefulness of Islam to which you are honoured to belong. Close the door quietly with your hand. You may have heard a Hadith reported by Imam Muslim whereby ‘Aisha (RA) quotes the Prophet: ‘Gentleness adorns every act. Its absence will tarnish it.’
2.2 ENTERING WHILE OTHERS ARE ASLEEP
If you enter a place where people are sleeping, whether during day or night, be quiet and gentle. Be considerate. Do not cause any undue noise when entering or exiting. You have heard the saying of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم): ‘Whoever is deprived of gentleness, is deprived of all sorts of goodness.’ Muslim and Al-Tirmidhi reported that the honourable companion Al-Miqdad bin Al-Aswad (RA) said: ‘We used to preserve the Prophet’s share of the milk, when he came back at night he would greet us with a voice loud enough for those awake to hear, without disturbing those who were asleep.’ In addition, whenever the Prophet used to pray at night, he would recite the Quran with a voice that pleased those that were awake, without disturbing those that were asleep.’
Princess Qatrul Nada (Dew point) was famous for her intelligence, manners and beauty. She was the daughter of Khimarwaih bin Ahmad bin Toulon, the King of Egypt. She married Al-Mu’taded Billah. Qatrul Nada said: ‘My father taught me an important manner – do not sleep among sitting people and do not sit among sleeping people.’ Continue reading
Islamic Manners have been practically demontsrated to us by Rasulullah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) and have been recorded through numerous hadeeth on the subject. It is sad though that many Muslims do not pay attenttion to the Islamic Manners they should be adopting and instead restrict their view of religion merely to Ibadat (external acts of worship). Below we share some articles that talk about the right manner to be adopted by a Muslim in certain situations taken from the book written by Shaykh Abdul-Fattaah Abu Ghuddah (RA). May Allah almighty give us all the ability to practise upon the Sunnah and teachings of Rasulallah (صلى الله عليه وسلم). Continue reading
الحديث الحادي عشر
عَنْ أَبِي مُحَمَّدٍ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِي بْنِ أبِي طَالِبٍ سِبْطِ رَسُوْلِ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَرَيْحَانَتِهِ رَضِيَ الله عَنْهُمَا قَالَ : حَفِظْتُ مِنْ رَسُوْلِ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: دَعْ مَا يَرِيْبُكَ إِلَى مَا لاَ يَرِيْبُكَ
[رواه الترمذي وقال : حديث حسن صحيح]
11th Hadith Translation
On the authority of Abu Muhammad Al-Hasan-Ibn-Ali Ibn-Abee-Talib (R.A.), the grandson of the Messenger of Allah (S.A.W.), and the one much loved by him, who said:
I memorized from the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him): “Leave that which makes you doubt for that which does not make you doubt.”
This hadith indicates that one should only perform an act or deed (which is permissible and proper) if he is positive or certain of it. Performing this act will lead to some kind of tranquility or happiness in this life and in the Hereafter. This is one of the benefits of applying the hadith.
In the other version of this hadith mentioned above, falsehood leads to doubt and never to tranquility. So if a believer finds his heart being disturbed by something (i.e. he feels uncertain or doubtful), then he should stay away from it. The heart of the true believer is tranquil at the sight of truth and righteousness. And the heart becomes unsure and shaky at the sight of falsehood and wrong.
This hadith equips Muslims with a practical criterion by which to judge doubtful acts and situations, and enables them to make the right decision concerning these matters. However, Muslims need to understand how to apply such a criterion correctly and not to be deceived by wrong perceptions or personal interest.

The Natural Instinct Is The Secret That Lies In The Soul. It Is The Essence Of Human Creation, The Secret Of Human Existence. It Is The Reference Of Secrets In The Existential Sense Of The Truth Of Man. Its Perfection Completes The Concept Of Man, Otherwise This Very Meaning Will Be Diminished And Man Will Lead A Life Similar To That Of The Beasts.
Any Damage That May Happen To It Will Inevitably Lead To A Disturbance – According To Its Danger – In The Existential Meaning Of Man, And To Psychological And Social Confusion, Which Overshadows The Spiritual And Physical Existence Of The Meanings Of Life! Since The Wounds Of The Instinct Has Degrees , Just As The Wounds Of The Body, Scratching The Skin Is Not Like Cutting The Flesh, Or Breaking The Bones, Or Stabbing The Chest! As Far As The Nature Changes, The Corruption On The Land Spreads! It Is One Of The Characteristics Of The Divine Manufacture, And The Divine Creation Of The Humankind.
Therefore, The Natural Instinct Is The First Psychological Image On Which Allah Created Man, Including The Basis Of Balance And Perfection. That Is, Before The Intervention Of The Human Hand With Scratching. Continue reading
The well-known neuroscientist David Ottoson – author of the “Challenges and Perspectives in Neuroscience” – says in the introduction of the book: “It is impossible for neuroscientists at any day, whether at the present time or the future, to fathom the mysteries of the brain and reveal his secrets definitely and with no doubt, because the human brain cannot understand himself.”
Is it Possible for Computers to Surpass the Brain’s Performance in the Future?
Hans Moravec, a scientist specialized in both neurology and computer science, made a comparison between the most modern computers in the year 2000 and the human brain. In the comparison, he did not take a part of the brain to compare with the modern computer. He resorted to the retina because of the extreme complexity of the brain parts. He did so based on the fact that the retina is a part of the brain extending to the back of the eye. The result of the comparison implemented in the experiment is that the efficiency of the modern computer resembles the efficiency of the brain of a small ant. Also, if the progress of computers continued in this increasing pattern, it is expected that the efficiency of computers would reach the brain efficiency of the simplest reptiles (salamanders) after forty years, i.e. 2040
As for the human brain, computer science cannot produce a machine that matches the brain’s efficiency, neither now nor in the future, because the brain’s efficiency matches a million of advanced computers working at the same time. If we assess the electric power consumed by these computers all at once, we will find out that it is about 100 thousand Amp, while the single human brain consumes 6 watt per minute (0.1 Amp).

A scientific study assures that Allah (SWT) supplied honey with natural antibiotics that kills dangerous microbes, let us read …
A new scientific study
A new scientific study has shown that honey has special characteristics that help to defend against germs. Honey also has high capability to resistbacteria that evolved their immune systems against standard medications.
Honey, in the old and modern era, has always been used as a natural medicine for many diseases. This new study might be a new twist to use honey for medical purposes.
According to the study that has been done through Sidney University in Australia, Dekarter, a scientific teacher in the biological and microbial science college says, “our research has shown that honey can replace many of the antibiotics that are used to treat cuts such as ointments and different creams. Also, using honey for healing purposes will increase the aging period of antibiotics. ” She also adds: ” most of the bacteria that cause infections in hospitals are at least resistance to one type of antibiotic, which means the need to produce new and stronger antibiotics that are able to execute bacteria that cause diseases.” Continue reading
