The prophetic biography
Muhammad (peace be upon him) was born in Makkah in the year 570, during the period of history Europeans called the Middle Ages. Muhammad was the son of Aamenah and Abdullah, from the tribe of Quraysh. He was a direct descendant of Ishmael, the eldest son of prophet Abraham. Muhammad’s father died just before he was born, and his mother passed away when he was six. He was raised by this grandfather, the chief of Makkah; and upon his grandfather’s death, Muhammad came under the care of his uncle, Abu Talib. Continue reading
Mocking Allah, His verses and His Messenger has become a normal thing
nowadays and it comes in most cases from abroad, where atheists claim that
Islam is a religion of underdevelopment, terrorism and ignorance. That›s why
the enemies of Islam continued to mock its teachings, claiming that they have
become out of date and do not fit the times! Continue reading
wives. How he dealt with them? How he treated them equally?
The Prophet accomplished the happiness to every one of them; that is
because he knew how to deal with women. He penetrated deeply into
her sensitive soul and he went on apostrophizing her with the warmth
of passion and assisted her to work for her religion and life.
How was the Prophet treating his wives?
What was the Prophet’s way in treating his wives? How could he treat
them equally? Continue reading
One of the most common doubts regarding Prophet Muhammad (PBUH )
has been his polygyny. He married a number of women more than the al-
lowed number in the Islamic shariah for the ordinary Muslim. The Prophet
(PBUH ) has been accused of being lusty; this has been the only reason
the accusers found to justify their plea.
In this chapter I am going to refute their plea through historical facts and
shariah rules. I believe that would prove this accusation as groundless. Continue reading
Baihaqi reported on the authority of Salman Al-Farsi (Radhi Allah ‘Anh) that Prophet (‘Alaihi Salat was-Salam) delivered a sermon on the last day of the month of Sha’ban. In it he (‘Alaihi Salat was-Salam) said,
“O People! The month of Allah (Ramadan) has come with its mercies, blessings and forgivenesses. Allah has decreed this month the best of all months. The days of this month are the best among the days and the nights are the best among the nights and the hours during Ramadan are Continue reading
The preceding chapters of this site discussed examples of the Prophet (saas)’s morality, as revealed in the Qur’an, and which is an example to all of mankind. We have considered various aspects of his just, compassionate, merciful, peaceful, conciliatory, mild, patient, Allah-fearing, modest and determined disposition.
As well as verses from the Qur’an, statements from the Prophet (saas)’s companions that have come down to us also contain a great deal of information about the Prophet (saas). Many details, such as his relations with his family and the believers around him, details of his daily life, his physical appearance, the feelings of awe he inspired in those who saw him, the food he enjoyed, his clothes and smile are all described by Islamic scholars with the term “outward form” (shamail). The term comprises such ideas as “character, temperament, behavior and attitudes.” Even if the concept of “shamail” originally had a broader meaning, it became more specific over time and eventually became a term used to Continue reading
Muhammad (PBUH) (Blessings and Peace be upon him) was born in Makkah, Arabia, on Monday, 12 Rabi’ Al-Awwal (2 August C.E). His mother, Aminah was the daughter of Wahb bin Abd Al-Manaf of the Zahrah family. His father, Abdullah, was the son of Abd Al-Muttalib. His genealogy has been traced to the noble house of Isma’il, the son of Ibrahim (Abraham) (PBUH) (May Peace be upon him) in about the fortieth descent. Muhammad’s father had died before his birth and his mother died when he was about six years old making him an orphan. In accordance with the tradition of noble families of Makkah, he was taken by a foster mother, Halimah, to her Continue reading
Messengers before you were also mocked, but those who jeered were engulfed by what they mocked. (Qur’an, 6:10)
Caricatures in cartoons recently published in Denmark have caused great distress in the Muslim world. However, it is all too obvious that the figures pictured in these caricatures are the artists themselves.
A number of caricatures reflecting the dark mindsets that support violence, drawn by artists with Darwinist and materialist views, have been published by a joint decision of the British and French Masonic Lodges’ Supreme Councils. Continue reading
Abdullah ibn Jafar reported that he heard Sayyiduna Ali say in Kufa that Allah’s Messenger, (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “The best of the women of her time was Maryam, daughter of Imran, and the bet of the women of her time was Khadijah, daughter of Khuwaylid.”
Is it not a great honor that the first person to embrace Islam was a woman? She was the first to bear witness that there is no god except Allah and that her husband was the Messenger of Allah. Her husband was our beloved Prophet Muhammad, (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and she was called Khadijah, ( may Allah be pleased with her) She was also called Thaira, meaning ‘pure’.

In the search for truth, it is indispensable that we take some time and effort to know the basis of our faith, and as true believers, we must follow the purest essence of our belief as exemplified by the messengers of God.
Who else can give us the guidance but those whom God chose and entrusted with the mission of proclaiming glad tidings to the believers and warnings to those who deviate from the way of our Creator and refuse to believe.
Religion for some may simply be a field of academics, to others it’s a medium solely for spiritual enrichment, and to a lot more various aspects or views people may find fitting on their level of desires or caprices. Continue reading
