Islamic Duas Every Muslim Must Memorize and Recite Daily

One of the major elements of a Muslim conduct is the making of Dua or supplicating. Besides the general and major events like Eid, Funeral, Fasting, Marriage, etc, Islam stresses upon Muslims to supplicate for even the most trivial of matters. Therefore, practicing Muslims supplicate to Allah Almighty even for the simplest of matters in every day routine.

Although the ordinary tasks in the daily routine can be undertaken without supplication, supplicating shows the belief of a Muslim and represents the fact that even for the most trivial of things, a believer turns towards Allah Almighty for seeking His blessings and help.

How to Supplicate

When it comes to making Dua or supplication, there are a few things that a Muslim must keep in mind for better supplication. The first thing to keep in mind is the intent – the intention behind making Dua must be to invoke to Allah Almighty with utmost sincerity and purity of heart. The second thing that is not compulsory but should be remembered is that a person must memorize the Arabic version of the supplication so that it shows the true spirit of religious inclination. If you are someone who cannot read the Arabic or Quranic verses, you are recommended to learn it with the help of Professional Quran Tutors Online.

Common Duas

The objective of this post is to help Muslims in knowing about the daily Duas, which they must memorize and recite on daily basis related to particular actions, and activities. Proceed further to educate yourself with these supplications:

When In Anger:

In the stressful and highly competitive life of today, the one issue that almost every one of us faces pertaining to our conduct is anger. Everyone of us undergoes anger at one point or another during the day. The anger of ours leads to clouding our judgment and the consequent decisions we make end up hurting someone or making a decision that is a total loss. Therefore, for everyone in general and Muslims in particular, it is imperative to avoid anger, and one of the best way of doing so can be by reciting Dua. Pertaining to Dua for avoiding and controlling anger, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) told of the Dua in one of His hadith in the following way:

If a person reads (this) when he is angry, then his anger shall go away.

اَعُوْذُ بِاللهِ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيْمِ

Transliteration – A’oozu Bil’laahi Minash Shaitaanir Rajeem
Translation– “I seek refuge in Al’laah from Shaitaan the cursed” [Tirmizi Shareef Vol.2 Pg.183].

From this hadith it becomes evident that being in the state of anger is being under the influence of Satan. Therefore, when it comes to avoiding Satan or controlling his induced temptations, there is no better refuge than Allah Almighty. Hence, whenever in anger, a Muslim must recite this Dua and seek the help of Allah Almighty.

Before And After Meal:

Another important and regular activity done in daily routine is taking of meal. Usually across the globe people have three meals, however, there are areas in the world where people face hunger and don’t have regular meals available for providing nutrition to the body. Therefore, the provision of meals during the day is one of the greatest blessings of Allah Almighty and for such blessing a Muslim ought to be thankful to Allah the Merciful. When it comes to Dua pertaining to meals, there is a Dua that a Muslim must recite before the meal and a Dua which must be recited after the meal. The Duas to recite in this regard are as follows:

Dua before the meal is:

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيْمِ

Transliteration – Bismil laahir Rahmaanir Raheem”
Translation – “
Al’laah’s Name we begin with, The Compassionate, Most Merciful.

When finished with eating, a Muslim must recite the following Dua:

اَ لْحَمْدُ للهِ الَّذِىْ اَطْعَمَنَا وَسَقَاناَ وَجَعَلَناَ مِنَ الْمُسْلِمِيْنَ 

Transliteration – Alhumdu lil laahil Lazee At’amana Wa Saqaana Wa Ja’alana Minal Muslimeen”.
Translation – “All Praise is due to Al’laah, who has blessed us with food and drink and made us from amongst the Believers (Muslims)”[Abu Dawood Pg.573]

The essence of both of these Duas is of thanking Allah Almighty for all the Mercy and Blessings He has bestowed upon Muslims in the form of meal.

Entering And Exiting Masjid:

Another regular activity that Muslims perform on daily basis is going to Masjid for prayers five times a day. Islam has put great stress on five times a day prayers in general and saying the prayers in the mosque in particular. Therefore, a practicing Muslim enters and exits a mosques five times a day where he submits to Allah Almighty and indulges in His prayer. Therefore, it is imperative that a Muslim knows and understands the importance of being in the mosque and recites particular Duas on respective actions.

Dua before entering the mosque is:

اللّهُـمَّ افْتَـحْ لي أَبْوابَ رَحْمَتـِك

Transliteration – Allaahum-maf-Tahlee Abwaaba Rahmatika”.
Translation – 
O Allaah, open the doors of Your Mercy for me.” [Sahi’h Muslim]

After prayer when a person exits Masjid, the following Dua should be recited:

اللّهُـمَّ إِنّـي أَسْأَلُكَ مِـنْ فَضْـلِك

Transliteration – Allaahum-ma In-nee As`aluka Min Fadhlika”.
Translation – “
O Allaah, I seek of You Your Grace.” [Sahi’h Muslim]

Thus when entering and exiting mosque, a Muslim must ask for the Mercy and Grace of Allah Almighty.

When Sneezing:

Although most of the activities undertaken by us in our daily routine are intentional, however, there are few unintentional things as well that happen to us every day. One of such things is the act of sneezing. The frequency of sneezing varies from person to person according to their nature and the condition they are in, regardless of whatever the reason be, the revival of breath after a sneeze is also a blessing of Allah Almighty and a Muslim ought to say thanks for it. Moreover, besides the person who sneezes, the other person who witnesses the sneeze must also respond to the Dua made by the sneezer. The person who sneezes must recite the following Dua:

 الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ

Transliteration – “Alhamdulillah”!
Translation – 
Thanks and all praise be to Allah

The person who listens to the sneeze and witnesses the other person reciting the Dua after sneezing, should say the following:

 يَرْحَمُكَ اللَّهُ

Transliteration – Yar Hamoo kall Lah”.
Translation – “
May Allah have mercy on you.” [Bukhari ,Mishkaat Shareef Pg.405]

Entering And Leaving Home:

Home is the base of a person from which a person exits to search and earn the blessings of Allah Almighty and it is a place where after the long day a person returns and shares those blessings with the family members. Therefore, it is imperative that a Muslim realizes the importance of leaving the home and then entering it.

The Noble Prophet (Salla Allahu ta’ala ‘alayhi wa Sallam) said, whoso ever recites this dua before leaving his home, all his difficulties will go away and he shall be protected from the mischief of his enemies and shaitaan will stay away from him:

بِسْمِ اللهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلىَ اللهِ وَلاَ حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّةَ اِلاَّ بِاللهِ ط

Transliteration – Bismil laahi Tawak’kaltu Alal laahi Wa Laa Hawla Wa Laa Quw’wata il’la bil’laah
Translation – 
Al’laah’s Name we begin with, I place my (full) trust in Al’laah and there is no Might and Power except with Al’laah.” [Tirmizi Shareef Vol.2 Pg.180]

When entering home, a Muslim must recite the following Dua:

بِسْـمِ اللهِ وَلَجْنـا، وَبِسْـمِ اللهِ خَـرَجْنـا، وَعَلـى رَبِّنـا تَوَكّلْـنا

Transliteration – Bismillaahi walajnaa, wa bismillaahi kharajnaa, wa ‘alaaRabblnaa tawakkalnaa”
Translation – In the Name of Allah we enter, in the Name of Allah we leave, and upon our Lord we depend [then say As-Salaamu ‘Alaykum to those present].” [Abu Dau’d]

When Feeling Stressed:

Due to all the competition and hard struggle during the day, it is quite natural that people become stressed. It is this stress that sometimes takes the shape of anger while in other times it causes depression, both of which are not favorable, hence it is imperative that a Muslim keeps control when under stress of pressure.  Pertaining to facing any discomfort or being unhappy about something, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) used to recite the following Dua:

لآَ اِلَهَ اِلاَّ اللهُ الْحَلِيْمُ الْحَكِيْمُ لآَ اِلَهَ اِلاَّ اللهُ رَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيْم

لآَ اِلَهَ اِلاَّ اللهُ رَبُّ السَّمَاوَاتَ وَاْلاَرْضِ وَرَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْكَرِيْمِ ط

Transliteration – Laa ilaaha il’lal laahul Haleemul Hakeemu – Laa ilaaha il’lal laahu Rab’bul Arshil Azeem – Laa ilaaha il’lal laahu Rab’bus Samawaati wal Ardi wa Rab’bul Arshil Kareem”.
Translation – “There is none worthy of worship except Al’laah, The Fore-bearing, The All Wise. There is none worthy of worship except Al’laah, The Lord of the Exalted Throne. There is none worthy of worship except Al’laah, The Lord of the Skies and The Lord of the Earth and the Lord of the distinguished Throne”.[Tirmidhi Vol.2 Pg. 181]

This Dua under stress shows the submissiveness of a person to the Authority and Supremacy of Allah Almighty, which represents the ideology that only He is the one Who can provide relief or assistance during stressful and discomforting situations.

While Traveling:

Traveling is also an activity, which people undertake on daily basis. No matter how small a distance is or whatever means of traveling is to be adopted, there is always a concern of safety with traveling. Therefore, it is imperative that a person asks for the protection and safety of Allah Almighty.

سُبْحَنَ الَّذِىْ سَخَّرَلَنَا هَذَا وَ مَا كُنَّا لَهُ مُقْرِنِيْنْ وَ اِنَّا اِلَى رَبِّنَا لَمُنْقَلِبُوْنْ

Transliteration Subhaanal lazee Sakh’khara Lana Haaza Wa Maa Kun’na Lahu Muqrineen. Wa In’na ilaa Rab’bina La Munqaliboon”.
Translation –  “Glory be to Al’laah who has given us control over this (mode of transport) and without his Grace we would not have been able to control it and undoubtedly we are to return towards our Lord.” [TirmiziAbu Dawood]

Bottom Line:

In short, there are a variety of activities that a person undertakes in the daily routine. No matter whichever activity is undertaken, it is imperative that the help and blessings of Allah Almighty be asked for it and if there is a proper Dua available for it, then it must be memorized and recited while performing the activity.

Most Effective Tips Pertaining To Memorization Of Holy Quran

Quran is the greatest gift of Allah Almighty to the human race. By developing an affiliation with Quran, a Muslim is able to understand the instructions from Allah Almighty and find the right path to live life and be among those who are under the blessings of Allah Almighty in this world and in the world hereafter.

Pertaining to association with Quran, Muslim associate with it in different ways, some recite it, some study it with meaning, while there are others that go beyond everyone else and learn to memorize Quran. Therefore, for every type of affiliation, Muslims opt for a respective way. The lines below discuss the major and most effective tips that can help in memorizing Quran in the most effective manner.

Quran Memorization:

Memorizing Quran involves both mind and heart. When both of them work in combination, only then can one memorize Quran. The mind incorporates the techniques, while the heart brings the reverence for memorization. The major factors required for effective memorization of Quran are as follows:

Sincerity- The first factor that needs to be present in order to effectively memorize Quran is sincerity. When you are sincere about memorizing Quran, only then will you be able to pay full attention to the lessons and consequently you will memorize it. You need to sincerely believe that Quran is the word of Allah, and your attempt of memorizing it is nothing but an effort to seek blessings of Allah Almighty. When you have such sincere intentions, your heart keeps you motivated towards the efforts required for memorization of Quran.

Consistency- The other major factor without which learning or memorization of anything is impossible, let alone Quran memorization is consistency. If you aren’t consistent, you won’t be able to memorize anything. Therefore, in order to memorize Quran you have to be consistent with your approach and take new and revise the old lessons regularly. The more consistent you are the better will you memorize and move forward in your Quran lessons.

Timings- Further to the factor of consistency, you need to allocate a special time or different times in the day for memorization of Quran. Therefore, regardless of whether you memorize Quran in the morning, in evening or after every prayer, you need to make sure that that particular time is only dedicated to Quran memorization and on daily basis. Hence, before committing to any Quran memorization time frame, sit for a while and see the time that is best for it in your routine, and then give that time to Quran memorization only.

Familiarity- When it comes to memorization of Holy Quran, you need have a particular Mushaf to familiarize yourself with the images of Quran. The using of a single Mushaf ensures that the memorization is assisted with pictorial memory, thus helping you in better memorization of Quran.

Atmosphere- Another important thing pertaining to memorization of Quran is the atmosphere in which you memorize Quran. In order to memorize Quran, you need to memorize it at a place that is secluded and where all your attention is on Quran and nothing is there to divert your attention.

Repetition- There is no magic trick for memorization of Quran, therefore, all you have to do in order to memorize it is keep on repeating your lesson, and once you move to the next lesson, memorize it along with the previous lesson. Therefore, there is no shortcut in memorization and you have to work hard and keep on repeating your lessons.

Meanings- Another thing that can help in better memorization of Quran is memorizing it with the help of meanings. For an Arabic speaker, memorization is easy because he/she is familiar with the meanings of words. Therefore, for a non-Arab speaker, the best way of memorizing Quran is by understand the meaning of words that are being memorized.

Listening Recitation- Besides giving special time to the memorization lesson, another tip that can effectively help in memorization of Quran is listening to the recitation of the lesson, which you are trying to memorize. When you keep on listening the same ayahs over and over again, it is quite natural that you will start memorizing it. Therefore, have the recitation of verses recorded in your iPod and keep on listening them.

Find A Partner- Another good way of memorizing Quran is by finding a partner with whom you can memorize Quran. You and the partner can both help out each other by having the other person listen to your recitation, thus this way you both can memorize your lesson daily. Hence, find a partner and memorize with him.

Recitation in Prayer- The most effective way of utilizing your memorized lesson is by reciting it during the prayers. You have to recite some part of Quran during the prayer, therefore, what better option can be there then to recite the lesson during the prayer, thus helping you in performing prayer and memorizing the Quran at the same time.

Conclusion:

In short, memorization of Quran is one of the biggest honors that a Muslim can have; therefore, following the aforementioned tips can help a Muslim in this Holy cause.

May Allah Almighty give us all the chance of memorizing Quran as much as possible. Ameen!!

The Health Benefits Of Reciting Holy Quran

The Holy Quran is the last divine book that Allah revealed on our beloved Holy Prophet (PBUH)more than 1400 years ago. The Holy Quran is not only the book of blessing and virtues but also has many psychological effects on the person who recites this great book. The holy Quran recitation has many positive effects on the health of a Muslim in terms of blood pressure, heart rate, and perceived level of stress. Perceived stress level is defined as the level of a stress in person that is enough that a person is stressful.

Inconclusive researchers:

Dutch researcher with the name of Vander Hoven conducted the research on this particular area but surprisingly he did not publish his results clearly. He only suggested, “Muslims who can read Arabic and who read the Holy Qur’an regularly can protect themselves from psychological diseases.” However, he does not provide any evidence or specific details about the actual effects of recitation of Quran on readers.

Yet another research:

In yet another research, Yucel Saleh says that, “There are statistical changes in body temperature and respiratory rate, but they are not significant enough to support the positive effects of prayer on physical well-being.” Again, he fails to report what were the actual results of his research and contents only on giving contradictory statements about the psychological benefits of Holy Quran.

A recent study:

Recently a study was carried out to investigate the abovementioned effects of Holy Quran. The purpose of this study was to do a comprehensive research on the subject because previous researches were not conclusive and they were low in quality. Summarizing the findings of this research, researcher describes that, “the current study found statistically significant changes of physiological conditions, and the study supports the hypothesis that prayer does have positive effects on physiology.”

Actual research:

This research was conducted in university of Salford, United Kingdom. In this study, 15 male and 15 female Muslim psychology students were included and study consisted of two parts. The first part was further divided into two conditions. In first conditions the heart rate, perceived stress level, and blood pressure of participants were checked before and after reading Holy Quran. In the second condition, same factors were checked before and after reading a non-religious book in an Arabic text.

The order of the experiment was also quite interesting. Half of the students read Holy Quran first followed by the other book. Similarly, the other contingent read non-religious book first and then studied Holy Quran.

Results obtained from the study:

Results were concluded after using two widely used methods that are post hoc t-tests and Anova. Surprisingly enough, researchers found that blood pressure, heart rate and perceived stress levels of students dropped after reciting holy Quran. On the contrary, no significant change was noticed in students after they read the other book.

The second part of the study:

In the second part of the research, experts interviewed the students about their subjective experience of reading the Holy Quran. All of the students responded that the Holy Quran has brought a positive change in their lifestyle and it educates the people to live a better and sin free life. Most importantly, it reminds them about their faith that is Islam and takes them to their Creator and also relaxes them physically and mentally.

In the end of the study, researchers concluded that recitation of Holy Quran is seemingly beneficial both for psychological and physical well being of any individual. It can reduce perceived stress levels alongside reducing blood pressures and keeping heart rate under control.

Who Are Gog and Magog In The Light Of Quran

Quran has spoken all about what has passed and what will happen in the future up till the Day of Judgment. Quran has said something directly, while about others it has spoken in a discreet way and has left it to the understanding of the readers whether they perceive it literally or figuratively.

One such matter related to the signs of the End of Days is the arrival of Gog and Magog. Different scholars and critics view the Islamic addressing of Gog and Magog differently. This writing will focus on the figurative interpretation of Gog and Magog as per their mention in Quran.

In Quran it is said about Gog and Magog:

“He said: “This (wall) is a mercy from my Lord: but when the warning of my Lord comes to pass, He will reduce it to dust (and Gog and Magog would thus be released into the world); and the promise of my Lord is true.” (18:98)

From this ayah the figurative interpretation about Gog and Magog can be made that they are a group, who near the time of end of days will successfully penetrate into each and every part of the world.

The other mention of Gog and Magog in Quran is:

“But there is a ban on a town which We have destroyed: that they (the people of the town) shall not return (to reclaim that town as their own); until Gog and Magog are let through (their barrier), and they swiftly spread out in every direction (replicating themselves amongst all the peoples of the world).” (21:95-96)

As per this ayah, the people of a certain town who were exiled from it will try to reclaim the town and the only way they will succeed in doing so would be when they have the support of Gog and Magog, who by then would have spread all across the world and would have become a part of the people of the world.

From these verses, three major points can be extracted related to Gog and Magog;

  • They will rule the whole world
  • They will inflict injustice and suffering on the ones who are righteous
  • They will be very eager to reclaim the Lost Land

If all these points are to be found in some group or a coalition, then it is to be found in Jew Christian coalition or the new world order formed by the west. An explanation of the argument is given below.

If the world be analyzed at this point of time, then there is only one group of nations that is dominating the whole world in terms of politics, in terms of economics, culture, sports, entertainment, media and fashion and so on. At this point of time, there is no other power that can stand equal or above the current western, or Jew Christian combined civilization. They have penetrated to each and every part of the world and even to the deepest level of in the house of everybody. These groups on their own can cause economic recession, make countries fight with each other, destroy or build new things and so on. The world has never been under the control or rule of a single authority till now. Thus, the Judeo-Christian civilization has completely conquered the world and rules it willfully.

When it comes to infliction of pain and suffering to the world the suffering that is there in Africa, Asia in general and Arab world in particular has never been there before. Just after the coalition of Jews and Christians, now we see their dominance everywhere. Somewhere the bring suffering by shrinking the economy of that country, or else the conventional war method is always there. The coalition works on the philosophy of not letting any of the oppressed nations to rise; rather they want them to stay under the oppression and sufferings as much as they can.

The most important factor regarding which the Coalition has been strict and passionate from day one is the liberation of the Holy Land. For this very purpose the Christians started the crusades which longed for over a thousand years, and finally ended in the year 1917 when the British Army entered Jerusalem. Since then, Israel has become the apple of the eye of western countries, and they are doing their best to make it stronger and dominant in world.

Thus, these three aspects of the Judeo-Christian coalition verify the aspects mentioned in Quran, and in figurative interpretation of the verses, this coalition can be called the Gog and Magog.

However, the coalition being regarded as Gog and Magog is totally an interpretation of the meanings, the real knowledge about the phenomenon only lies with Allah Almighty.

May Allah Almighty save us from the evil of Gog and Magog and let us be on the side of Truth and Justice when the time comes. Ameen!

The Contradictions In Western Idea Of Freedom Of Speech And The Islamic Perspective

The primary source of information that the people of West have for gaining information about Islam is Western media. Both the print and electronic media of West is what provides information to the people about Islam and it is the biasness of this media that the people of the West have a negative perception of Islam and they see it as a religion of oppression and aggression.

One of the major things that Islam is accused of in the Western world is the oppression of freedom of speech. West proclaims to be the proponent and the emblem bearer of freedom of speech, whereas it regards Islam as a religion where the followers have no say whatsoever and they cannot raise their voice against anything.

The Islamic opinion about the freedom of speech will be discussed in later part of the writing however, the thing that needs to be addressed first is the Western view of freedom of speech and how it contradicts with it.

Western View:

The West is the proponent of freedom of speech where the individuals in a society are free to express their opinion in any way they want against or for anyone they want. Although this type of freedom cannot exist in world because such a freedom would result in nothing but people defaming each other, spreading slanders and falsely accusing each other. Therefore, in the Western law, despite all the freedom, the limit of it is set that it does not result in hurting the feeling of anyone or that harms the image of some other person.

Contradiction:

The West speaks of freedom of speech without any boundaries, however, it shows biasness towards certain matters and for them it has made laws, whereas, when it comes to other social systems in the world like Islam, they judge it and defame it for the limits it has put on its followers. Some major contradiction of the West pertaining to the freedom of speech it so claims are as follows:

  1. Firstly, in the European countries there is a law as per which no one is allowed to speak about ant-Semitic movement in the Nazi regime. People are not allowed to favor the haulocast or give any opinion that does not oppose it. This shows the biasness of the Western media and the demolishing of the notion of freedom of speech. On the other hand, when it comes to Western media publishing the caricature of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and Muslims protesting against it, it is simply remarked as a freedom of expression. Thus, duality and contradiction exist in the Western notion of freedom of speech.
  2. Secondly, in CIA all the employees are bound to sign a document as per which they are never to share or to publish their experience that involves information related to country. This law was passed when CIA officials started writing memoirs regarding their experience during service. Although that was their expression however, it did not fit the US objective therefore, it was taken away from the officials. Thus, another contradiction in Western saying and doing.
  3. Thirdly, in UK as well the officials of the secret agency are not allowed to discuss or publish any information pertaining to national security. Hence, their freedom of speech is also made limited.

The above arguments show that the West speaks of freedom of speech without any constraints, however, when it comes to certain matters and issue, there is no freedom of speech whatsoever and there are strict limitations.

Islamic Perspective:

Islam is a religion of moderation and human connection. It does not allow anything that is extreme or that tarnishes the human connection. Islam allows its followers to speak freely and in some cases it stresses upon them to speak without any fear, however, when it comes to speech hurting the feelings or beliefs of someone, Islam tells it followers to refrain from it and adopt a way that is more subtle.  Some examples of how Islam views freedom of speech and to what extent does it allows Muslims to proclaim their opinion are as follows:

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said in a hadith:

“The master of martyrs is Hamza bin Abdul Muttalib and a man who stood up to an oppressive ruler, ordered him (to do good) and forbade him (from doing evil) and was killed by him.”

The hadith shows that when it comes to speaking freely, the allowed speech is that which encourages or promotes goodness and that forbids evil. Therefore, Muslims are to raise their voices without any fear if they see anything bad happening and they should also encourage or support goodness with their voice.

Harun-ul-Rashid was one of the Muslim caliphs who rewarded scholars who would go out and spread the message of Islam and give people an understanding of deen. Therefore, speech for the sake of spreading of knowledge is also allowed and encouraged in Islam.

Thirdly, on contrary to the Western world where freedom of speech is allowed when it comes to hurting the feelings of the Muslims, Islam forbids any act that hurts the feeling of the non-Muslims living in the Muslims reign. Regarding this, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said in one of His hadiths:

“Whoever hurts a non-Muslim citizen of an Islamic state hurts me, and he who hurts me annoys Allah.” (Bukhari )

From the hadith it is clear that in Islam any proclamation of speech that is against any religion or that hurts the feeling of a non-Muslim is not allowed in Islam. Therefore, the notion that Islam or Muslims somehow are in opposition of non-Muslims or they go to any measures to defame other religions is wrong, rather Islam wants Muslims to accept that other people have their religion and there is no need of turning towards hurtful speech as a means of spreading Islam.

Conclusion:

Ina  nutshell, there is no such thing as an ideal freedom of speech in the world and if West does preach any it is limited and wherever it conflicts with the great scheme the right of speech is taken back from the respective people. Islam encourages a speech that is in favor of good and that detests bad, however, even then the speech is supposed to be free from any hate and resentfulness.

One Of The Biggest Reasons For West Turning To Islam So Rapidly

Religion Islam is blessed and divine religion of Allah Almighty that has been spread through the prophecies of messengers for the establishment of truth. Islam holds high estimation because of its magnanimous vitalities as it is the mere religion of holding the assimilating capacity to appeal anyone with authenticity in the ever-changing phases of existence. Islam due to its exhilarating powers and affirmation has declared the only acceptable religion in sight of Allah. Quran says:

“Indeed, the religion in the sight of Allah is Islam. And those who were given the Scripture did not differ except after knowledge had come to them….” [Quran 3:19]

The only religion that has been targeted since start, people have mocked its teachings and grotesquely rendered the facts to propagate negativity regarding Islamic beliefs is Islam. These acts have strengthened after 9/11 on which West started a social war against all Muslims to declare them conservative and terrorist. Despite Islam-phobia the most wide spread religion after 9/11 attacks has become Islam and still people are converting to accept the Supremacy of God.

Islam Puts Other Religions in Shade

With the advent of technology, most of the people have laid this firm faith upon science and technology and believes its dominance in coming days. These types are of those people who are in pure whim neglecting the fact that science proves what has already quoted by the Exalted Rab Who has created and sustained these signs since creation until now. In His authentic book of miracles, He has made it clear that signs are for believers and to which idolaters will remain dumb and deaf.

“Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and earth, and the alternation of the night and the day, and the [great] ships which sail through the sea with that which benefits people…… directing of the winds and the clouds controlled between the heaven and the earth are signs for a people who use reason.” [Quran 2:164]

Islam has not spread by means of sword purview of Westerns claim but has spread because of authentic Quran, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) personality, and Sunnah that has diverted many non-Muslims and has propelled them to include his name in the most influential man on earth. Islam has spread because of the strong faith bearer worships, their positive attitude towards every aspect, universality of Islamic principles that are cohesive and consistent that is why approximately 40,000 Britains, 70,000 French nationalists and 100,000 Americans have embraced Islam in recent years that are irrefutable facts.

Reasons that Make Islam a Widespread Religion in No Time

Allah Almighty sent down His apostles for the establishment of truth through His scared words that has concealed in Divine Quran. Holy Quran is not first and last revelation as prior its revelation Allah sent three other books that encompasses the same teachings as encoded in Quran. The reason that has cemented Islam as fast growing religion exhibits the attributes that other religions lack for sure.

1. One True Authentic Religion

Islam undoubtedly is one true authentic religion of God, which is a guidance and source of Hidayah for all Muslims on earth. For Islam authenticity this alone reason is suffice that it is accepted and declared by Allah the glorified Lord. He has ordered the worshippers to enter in religion Islam in order to find peace and absolution. The followers of Rab are free from all ambiguous confusions of following fake lords (trinity) who cannot help yet are factory of satanic whispers. Quran says:

“They have certainly disbelieved who say, “Allah is the third of three.” And there is no god except one God. And if they do not desist from what they are saying, there will surely afflict the disbelievers among them a painful punishment. [Quran 5:73]

2. Eternal peace

Humans of today are succumbing to the fast and forward era where there is no time for self-analysis and contemplation. Religion has a gone word and satisfaction has at all disappeared from their pages of life-let. Psychology has estimated the rise in anxiety and despondencies increasing in self-inflicting crimes and suicides. Islam provides solution to these all ordeals and asks His followers to seek peace and satisfaction in Allah’s words. Allah is the creator of hearts and only Allah can soothe it. Quran says:

“Those who believe (in the Oneness of Allah – Islamic Monotheism), and whose hearts find rest in the remembrance of Allah, Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest.” [Quran 13:28]

3. Non Discriminatory Rules and Rights

The edifice of Islam has built upon Justice and equality. These two attributes have joined the five fundamental pillars of Islam together and discourages all those factors breeding discrimination in rights. To West, Muslims are conservative enough who dominates their female entities and keep them oppressed. In sight of Allah, the level of distinction is piety nor character and gender. Muslims men have advised to be fair and just to their wives following the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Islam has liberated women enough that most of the converted persons towards Islam are women mostly and their strong rationale for their conversion states:

“In Islam, we have the right to have property, we inherit, we keep our last names, and we don’t have to take our husbands identities. In Christianity, people just do not understand how the Bible sees women, and I think people really should be working into that, and see how Christians think of women. Muslim women had rights and they can own property and that stuff, Christians were debating if we had so.” [Naoual, Elkoubaiti (2006). Women and Conversion]

4. No Compulsion in Religion

Despite that, Allah has called religion Islam the acceptable yet He declares it part of one’s willingness to accept it or not. There is no compulsion in selection of religion hence the man has freed from all kinds of hardships. The significant pillars that are essence of Islamic dogmas and doctrines even exhibit some clauses that refrained from adopting its rituals in hard times Allah has clear narrative like:

“There is no compulsion in religion. Verily, the Right Path has become distinct from the wrong path.” [Quran 2:256]

The yearning of quest for truth helps Islam to pave its feet deep in the shores of people’s heart. Islam does not require reasons nor have any logics to persuade people towards Allah’s doctrines yet people of all races, creeds and nations accepted it as true religion. Islam is verily a religion of solace and peace and truth in the end prevails regardless of circumstances.

Women In Islam

If there is one stereotype that is most commonly associated with Islam is it being a religion that suppresses and oppresses women. With all the clauses of Islam people get the idea that it is somehow a male dominated or male favoring religion that considers women as only objects and subjects that are under the control of man and he can use them the way he wishes without giving them any rights.

The statement that Islam is a woman friendly religion and gave the rights to women, which they never had, has become a cliché. Despite all the arguments that Muslims give pertaining to the prestigious and respectable stature of women in Islam, the Western media still ignores them and tries to show the oppression of Muslim women as if it were commanded by Allah. The lines below discuss women in Islam in the light of the rights that Islam has given them.

Education:

The West thinks that Islam does not allow women to get education and become enlightened. This is a wrong conception of women in Islam, because the religion preaches education for all and the pursuit of education is as imperative for a Muslim woman as it is for a man. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said in a hadith:

“Acquiring knowledge is compulsory for every Muslim.” (Tabarani)

There is a universal agreement among Muslims pertaining to the fact that this hadith equally applies to all the genders and the word ‘Muslim’ in this hadith does not stand for male part of the society rather females are stressed in the same way and magnitude as well. Therefore, thinking that women cannot receive education or they cannot walk the path of learning is a misconception and is against what Islam preaches to its followers.

Charity:

It is quite natural of people to assume that women in Islam cannot be charitable because if they are oppressed to a level where they cannot earn so how could they give charity or Zakaat. Sadly, this notion is also misconceived because in Islam women can be charitable either from their own earning or from the earning of their husbands. Hazrat Aisha (RA) narrates about Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) saying:

“A woman will receive reward (from Allah) even when she gives charity from her husband’s earnings. The husband and the treasurer (who keeps the money on the husband’s behalf) will also be rewarded, without any decrease in reward of any of them.”

Therefore, the stereotype that males are the ones who are supposed to be charitable in an Islamic society is wrong, rather women can also be charitable and receive equal reward for their deeds.

Worship:

Another patriarchal construct is males dominating the worshiping in Islam. People think that either it is obligatory five times prayer or excessive prayer it is the male members of the society that have to do it. They are the ones who are supposed to say Salat, they are to fast, they are to perform pilgrimage and so on. This notion like all the other false portrayed notions is wrong because pertaining to worship women are the same as men in Islam and there is no discrimination. Women have to pray five times a day as men do, it is also obligatory upon them to fast as it is upon men, and women of means also have to offer Hajj in the same way as men do. Moreover, when it comes to reward against all these deeds, the reward is equal for both men and women without any difference.

Property And Wealth Rights:

Under the same conception about Islam where women are repressed and subjugated, the notion that people have in general is that women have no property and wealth rights in Islam. It is on the subjectivity of the male to give whatever he wills to give to women. In Quran Allah Almighty says:

“And wish not for the things in which Allah has made some of you excel the others. For men there is reward for what they have earned, (and likewise) for women there is reward for what they have earned, and ask Allah of His Bounty. Surely, Allah is Ever All-Knower of everything.” (4:32)

From the ayah it is clear that women have right on whatever they earn, whether it comes from their work or from the property they have received in the form of legacy. A Muslim woman is to receive her share in the property and whatever she earns it all is on her personal disposal whether she likes to share it with her husband or other male members of the family or not.

Marital Partner Selection:

It is a common presumption pertaining to marriage in Islam that in Islam women have no right to chose their marital partner, rather it is her parents who do so and select whomever they want for their daughter. Like all other notions it is wrong and Islam gives an equal right of selection of marital partner to a woman as it does to a man. Once a Woman came to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and complained:

“My father has forced me to marry my cousin in order to raise his own status.”

The Prophet (PBUH) replied:

“You are free to dissolve your marriage and chose whomever you wished to marry.”

She replied:

“I accept my father’s choice, but my aim was to let the women know that fathers have no right to interfere in the marriage.” (Ibn Majah)

From this hadith again it is clear that Islam gives the right of selection of marital partner to women and even more if they are forced to marry someone, they can say no or dissolve the marriage if they are pushed into it. Therefore, this great right of selection of marital partnerrests with a woman in Islam.

Deeds of A Momin:

Sadly, the Muslim world has limited the women to the boundaries of homes and they are not allowed to practice their rights that are given to them by Islam. The job of doing good and forbidding evil is only associated with men in the present Muslim world, forgetting the fact that it is not the duty of a particular gender, rather both the genders are ordered to stop evil and do good in their capacity. when we read Quran and learn its verses with meanings, we can clearly see assess the message of Allah when He says:

“The believers, men and women, are Awliyaa (helpers, protectors, friends) of one another; they enjoin Al-Maruf (good prescribed in Islam) and forbid Munkar (evils marked by Islam); they perform As-Salat, and give Zakat, and obey Allah and His Messenger. Allah will have His Mercy on them. Surely, Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise.” (9:71)

Therefore, it is in the rights of a woman to do the deeds that Allah Almighty associates with a Momin, so that like the male members of the Muslim society, she could also play her part and make this and the life to come better.

Conclusion:

In a nutshell, in Islam women have all sorts of rights. Considering women a lesser being or subjugating them is not to be proven from any aspect of Quran or hadith, rather they have rights that allow them to be a productive part of the society and be a practicing Muslim as well.

What Do You Know About Islamic Virtues?

Humans have blessed with the divine favors of body and soul by the supreme Lord possessing four elements with distinct powers. These distinct powers are exuberant to foster new portals of imaginations leading to soul purification. Apart from these powers, the moral attributes reshape the inner beauty of soul pertaining to high distinction in sight of Allah Almighty otherwise the human body succumb to tyranny and gluttony that is the end to the moral and spiritual life of a body.

As water sun is for plants, good deeds are to soul. The soul nourishes with every good deed that is why the Holy Scripture of Quran and Prophet Sunnah are the essence persuading humans towards good deeds.

“Indeed, this Qur’an guides to that which is most suitable and gives good tidings to the believers who do righteous deeds that they will have a great reward.” [Quran 17:9]

The benefit of doing good deeds lies in the reward that a person will get it from the glorified Lord of the universe and who knows which of their deed becomes a source of their redemption at the Day of Reckoning. Islamic virtues are intertwined with the performance of good deeds regardless of nature to attain the level of piety and bounties. Some of the daily Islamic virtues that a Muslim should perform for moral, spiritual, and social perspective are:

1. Paying alms:

Allah has awarded almost everything to His worshippers yet has kept some deprivations for a man because nothing is perfect except the Lord Himself. These deprivations are of different type and for different people, some being tested through lack of food, some through lack of happiness, and some being tested upon lack of money and daily requirements. Quran narrates:

“And We will surely test you with something of fear and hunger and a loss of wealth and lives and fruits, but give good tidings to the patient.” [Quran 2:155]

Allah and Quran has emphasized in giving alms to those who deserves in order to fulfill their daily needs. Zakat is the deed that has highly recommended and emphasized in the Sacramental Scriptures. This deed cleanses one’s money and intention and brings him closer to His Mighty Lord.

“And establish prayer and give Zakat, and whatever good you put forward for yourselves – you will find it with Allah. Indeed, Allah of what you do, is Seeing.” [Quran 2:110]

2. Be Just Be fair:

The five fundamental pillars of Islam are the core block of Islamic doctrines that are weak until they lack justice and equality. Allah is the omnipotent Judge and His realm is the absolute example of it. The Dooms day even is the example that Allah will reward people with what they have been committed throughout their lives. Justice is an utmost social factor too which leads to equality of rights and unity. Allah despises that arrogant leader who have bestowed with throne yet lacks justice and shows Love for those who are just and patient in dealings.

“O you who have believed, be persistently standing firm for Allah , witnesses in justice, and do not let the hatred of a people prevent you from being just. Be just; that is nearer to righteousness.” [Quran 5:8]

3. Treat with kindness:

Prior Islam the Arabs were in the amalgamation of fear and miseries, fear of neighbors, fear of people belonging to other religions but with the advent of Islam, the cruel practices had perished and replaced by love and peace. Kindness has attained the highest level in deeds and the kindles hearts have no place in paradise as well.

“You will not enter paradise until you have faith; and you will not complete your faith till you love one another.” [Muslim]

Kindness can be in subset of any form that is kindness to kids, wives, family, neighbors, and all fellow beings. Kindness is Muslim’s expression of faith and has high rewards for the one who deal people in the best of his manner in kind pursuit. Removing obstacle is kindness, generosity, willful guidance, and giving someone best advice to alleviate one’s miseries is kindness, the level of which has even kept higher than fasting and Salah as narrated:

“Do you know what is better than charity and fasting and prayer? It is keeping peace and good relations between people, as quarrels and bad feelings destroy mankind.” [Muslims & Bukhari]

4. Patience and Tolerance

Allah loves those who are patient in their nature and avoid haste. Allah has asked the faith bearers to tolerate the ordeals and calamities that will be rewarded in the end by Allah Almighty. Allah tests His close worshippers to test them against variables to see who is of concrete faith. The persons with weak faith dwindle and cursed High Most for their misers and tribulation that is total shirk.

“And seek help through patience and prayer, and indeed, it is difficult except for the humbly submissive [to Allah].” [Quran 2:45]

By saying Allah is with the one who is patient and tolerant meaning that this feature embodied the strength in persons molding them to encounter the challenges with enlighten heart.

“And whoever remains patient, Allah will make him patient. Nobody can be given a blessing better and greater than patience.” [Al-Bukhari]

5. Repentance for forgiveness

Human succumb quite easily to the trials and miseries eventually befell in the grave of sins. Still Allah does not disown His follower and ask him to repent in order to beseech His mercy. Repentance is a good habit that shields a person from gross sins that is Why Allah has warned His worshippers from the whispers of Satan, which is the proximal enemy of Human being.

“And [saying], “Seek forgiveness of your Lord and repent to Him, [and] He will let you enjoy a good provision for a specified term and give every doer of favor his favor. But if you turn away, then indeed, I fear for you the punishment of a great Day.” [Quran 11:3]

To err is human and human has born weak that is why the door to repentance, penitence, and forgiveness are all open for humans.

Aforementioned are some of the virtues that Islam propagates for the betterment of a human because eventually the fair, just, and righteous person will become a vital human to society as well. Verily deeds will be judged on the intentions and will be rewarded accordingly.

“The reward of deeds depends upon the intentions and every person will get the reward according to what he has intended.” [Bukhari]

Quran and Science Prove that Allah Almighty is the Creator and Sustainer of the Universe

With the beginning of 21st century many people start shunting to believe on the existence of God professing that such beliefs are fluke rhymes. The lack of scientific facts have increased and cemented the concepts of Atheists that is because of the illogical myths and weird rituals that belittled the minds of people. The nature itself is Allah and existence and omnipotence is evident from science and Islamic narrations.

Undoubtedly the proof of something visible existed is far easy than the proofs of something not visible. Allah though is present in each creation yet is not visible to the naked eye. His presence is in small atom to the star of galaxy, small grain to the cells of brain, in creation of soul, death, and reincarnation of human physical body that proves His omnipresence and sole creator of the universe. However, the ignorant despite being theses proofs will never admit and accept because the Lord has sealed their hearts and they are deaf and dumb to the Hidayah.

The example of those who disbelieve is like that of one who shouts at what hears nothing but calls and cries cattle or sheep – deaf, dumb and blind, so they do not understand.” [Quran 2:171]

Quranic Scriptures About Divinity of God:

The detail study of Quranic scriptures makes it amply clear that Allah Almighty is the only creator and sustainer of universe. He is the first (Awalu), the last (Aakhiru) and the existent one (Qayyum). Quran the book that is sent down by Allah says:

“He is the First and the Last, the Ascendant and the Intimate, and He is, of all things, knowing.” [Quran 57:3]

One of the mostly asked questions about God’s existence is that how can you believe in Allah when you cannot see, hear and feel Him? Seeing the art of a painter, the aesthetic skills are required to judge his paining without even seeing him that latterly compel a person to applaud the painter’s existence and creativity. In the same way this entire universe is a painting that is prove of His existence about which He clearly has stated in Quran that there are signs for the believers in the creation of earth, clouds, heaven, and hell.

“To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who is it that can intercede with Him except by His permission? He knows what is [presently] before them and what will be after them, and they encompass not a thing of His knowledge except for what He wills. His Kursi extends over the heavens and the earth, and their preservation tires Him not.” [Quran 2:255]

Intellect is Not An Enemy to Faith:

Allah has blessed humans to sense and then map senses over minds to think about the celestial creation and blessings of Allah. This intellect is bestowed upon humans to contemplate His teachings in order to worship Allah. Allah says in Quran:

“Do they not contemplate within themselves…? [Quran 30:8]

This verse propels a person to analyze himself, his body creation, working of his mind and then think of the divine Lord who is the creator being behind. Intellect is what instills faith and strengthens belief rather an enemy to make a person dumb in transgression.

Environment and Cosmology:

Probing environment and cosmology provides eminent facts to lay trust on the divinity of Lord. Science proves that the creation is through a big bang theory but the force was supernatural and no one but Allah holds the power to support it. The finest attribute of Lord is His precision be it regarding sun, moon or solar system. He has created everything in fine proportions and any havoc imbalance leads to terrible distractions. Ozone layer, Gayle, and hurricanes are the example of global warming and excessive use of materials that has disturbed the natural way of Universe.

“Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of the night and the day are signs for those of understanding.” [Quran 3:190]

Some Unmistakable Facts About God’s Existence:

The universe provides safe host to live in it, balanced and tempered. The modern day astronomers quoted the expansion of universe stating that high gravity leads to early expansion and collapse of universe whereas with slight gravity, the galaxies and stars would not come into existence but it is the exact stats and calculations of gravity that has hold back the universe. Allah prior their discoveries had stated in Quran that:

“And the heaven We constructed with strength, and indeed, We are [its] expander.” [Quran 51:47]

 

One cannot decide one’s appearance, physical stature and creed as it is pre birth and already been decided with creation. If creation were in human’s hand until now they would have created their own clan and would be running a nation by now. Allah has created a human and his birth process is a miracle that only Allah knows and has supremacy to hold onto it. Quran says:

“And Allah has extracted you from the wombs of your mothers not knowing a thing, and He made for you hearing and vision and intellect that perhaps you would be grateful.” [Quran 16:78]

Scientific Facts Addressing Allah’s Existence:

  1. It is Muslim’s sheer faith that Allah has created us to worship and glorify Him but the ignorant ones who keep on denying for them Quran is let alone suffice to prove it. There are few examples that Allah has stated in 14th century and science has discovered it now, an affirmation towards the existence of Allah the sole creator and sustainer of universe.
  2.  Allah long ago has invited humans to fly indicating the possibility of flying decades ago.
  3. The reverend Surahs indicated the existence of other creatures (Jin) and possibility of life on other planets prior the scientific discoveries.
  4. Earth is described as egg shape in Quran but the science later on stated that earth is round.
  5. The formation of honey is the task of female honeybee and now the biological features has cemented the divine fact of Quran.
  6. The formation of clouds and entire process of rain is as same as described in science books under the title of water cycle.

In short, the divinity of Lord is beyond human comprehension and irresistible fact. Quranic scriptures, narratives, and science are the institute unanimously agreed upon the sole creator existence and eventual sustainer. Still some deny His existence and marked themselves as Atheists, for them Allah has stated in Surah Rahman:

“And which of the favors of your lord will you deny?”

Quran: Guiding You On Every Step!

While enrolling in an institute the connoisseur handed a list of contents to novice that he needs to learn and accomplish prior awarding degree. The world is an institute and the course of contents are all ascribed in Allah’s book of guidance already that He has revealed upon His last messenger. The contents comprise almost everything exuberating divinity and minor issues. This book of guidance has declared the source to award distinction at the day of Qayamah when all people will gather in the court of Supreme Judge and accountability will proceed in compliance to their committed deeds.

For the authenticity and sanctity of Quran alone this fact is suffice that it is the world of Lord coded in Arabic, full of guidance for the easy comprehension of Humankind. Allah says in Quran:

“And We have sent down to you the Book as clarification for all things and as guidance and mercy and good tidings for the Muslims.” [Quran 16:89]

Purpose of Quran Revelation

Quran revelation is not the first revelation of omnipotent deity but a last revelation, which will remain source of Hidayah until the Day of Resurrection for every single being. The purpose has itself clarified by the Book of miracles as:

“As guidance and mercy for the doers of good.” [Quran 31:3]

Source of guidance and mercy for whom? The traits of “good doers” have explicitly elaborated in the verses of Quran as:

“Who believe in the unseen, establish prayer, and spend out of what We have provided for them, And who believe in what has been revealed to you, [O Muhammad], and what was revealed before you, and of the Hereafter they are certain [in faith].” [Quran 2: 3-4]

Quran bestows insight upon man showing the right path to the believer by quoting accounts of Prophet (PBUH) and His followers. The Book of Allah motivates a person through parables, exhortation, and admonitions to save from aversion.

“That is from the news of the unseen which We reveal to you, [O Muhammad]. You knew it not, neither you nor your people, before this. So be patient; indeed, the [best] outcome is for the righteous.” [Quran 11:49]

Quran has Everything that a Man Wants to know

Quran is an easy to understand portal for all fellow beings. It guides a person personally, spiritually and morally instructing to abide from the wrong doings. Quran itself authenticates its teachings as:

“Indeed, this Qur’an guides to that which is most suitable and gives good tidings to the believers who do righteous deeds that they will have a great reward.” [Quran 17:9]

Aforementioned verse sheds light on a fact that transgressors are those who do not pay heed to the clear indication of Allah’s signs and will be a hopeless soul in the end.

Quran as Prophetic Mission

Quran strengthens the prophetic mission of generations i.e. to address the commandments of Allah Almighty and to ask a Muslim to worship the only Lord by commemorating the oneness of Allah. The mission of Apostles is to guide the person and to enlighten his heart by exposing him to the lights of reckoning.

“This is] a Book which We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], that you might bring mankind out of darknesses into the light by permission of their Lord – to the path of the Exalted in Might, the Praiseworthy.” [Quran 14:1]

The darkness mentioned here is the darkness of souls, the ignorance that is considered bliss by the non-believers but soon will be trapped in wrath of Allah Almighty. The darkness of soul is the vice that Quran has alarmed since revelation to emancipate humanity by leading towards light of wisdom.

“Bring out your people from darknesses into the light and remind them of the days of Allah.” Indeed in that are signs for everyone patient and grateful.” [Quran 14:5]

Guidance and Interceder

As the guider never leaves the pupil alone in the hardship and battles in the same way, Quran guides and keep on asking the followers to concentrate on its meanings to extract the essence of Islamic dogmas. The day when a single soul will plead for virtues and no one will help him then Quran, the guider will be an interceder for the believers. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) quoted as Hadith narrates:

“Read the Quran, for it will come as an intercessor for its reciters on the Day of Resurrection.” [Muslim]

Distinguish between the idolaters and believers

Quran is revealed to guide the people towards the path of Allah, the chosen path of absolution. The idolaters keep on denying the beliefs encrypted in the verses of Quran about which Allah says that they are dumb and deaf hence can never grasp the blessings of Allah Almighty and will always be in the heap of ignorance.

“[This is] a blessed Book which We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], that they might reflect upon its verses and that those of understanding would be reminded.| [Quran 38:29]

The non-believers deny the sings of Allah and are in the gross whim that they will be set free once died. The accountability of these who are astray souls will be terrific, as they have given ample time to repent yet avoid turning back to Allah.

“Indeed, We sent down to you the Book for the people in truth. So whoever is guided – it is for [the benefit of] his soul; and whoever goes astray only goes astray to its detriment. And you are not a manager over them.” [Quran 39:41]

Quran verily guides a person in each aspect of His life, does not leave Him alone in time of need, and eradicate anxiety by instilling the truth upon him. Surmising it as the authentic book that is a sole guider and teacher until the last Day of Judgment is Quran, hence hold unto it to be among the blessed ones.

“O mankind! I have left behind over you that which if you hold fast to it, you will never go astray: the book of Allah and the Sunnah of His prophet.” [Al Bayhaqi]
