A Reflection on Divine Love

By Hamza Yusuf | 04 Oct 2010

Many Muslims believe that the idea, “God loves everyone,” is simply wrong and incongruous with Islamic teachings. Verses abound in the Qur’an decrying those God does not love: liars, hypocrites, oppressors, the arrogant, boastful braggarts, and those who love praise for that which they have not done, among others. Reading these verses, it is easy to begin to resent such people and to believe that God does not love everyone. However, if we look closely at these people, we see elements of ourselves in them.

Muslims around the world are preparing to commemorate 'the night journey.'

Lailat al Miraj is a Muslim holiday that commemorates the Prophet Muhammad's nighttime journey from Mecca to the 'Farthest Mosque' in Jerusalem where he ascended to heaven, was purified and then instructed on the five daily prayers conducted by Muslims.

Fearing Allah the way the Prophet feared Him

By Dr. Muhammad Salma | 27 May 2013

Fearing Allah is a positive trait that once properly settled into the heart changes one’s life considerably to be in conformity with divine injunctions. Therefore, as once said by one of the early pious predecessors, when fearing others, you flee from them, but when fearing Allah, you flee to Him.

Practically, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) perfectly embodied the true fear of Allah. His very words rightfully proclaimed: “I am the most knowing of Allah and the most fearful of Him among you.”

The world we live in contains societies with all kinds of beliefs. Muslims living in such a world must be respectful toward all beliefs they come up against, no matter what they may be, and behave forgivingly, justly and humanely. This responsibility placed on believers is to invite people to the beauty of the religion of Allah by means of peace and compassion.

How to read the Qur'an

Source : Arab news / 26 Feb 2013

Muslims believe that the Qur'an is Allah's words that were revealed to Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) through Angel Gabriel (peace be upon him).

The Qur'an is the word of the Ever-Living Allah. It has been sent down to guide humans for all times to come. No book can be like it. As you come to the Qur'an, Allah speaks to you. To read the Qur'an is to hear Him, to converse with Him, and to walk in His ways. It is the encounter of life with the Life-giver.

Attributes of Allah the Creator

By Shahul Hameed | OnIslam | 19 Nov 2012

Indeed the knowledge of Allah Almighty given to us through the revelations to our Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is the most beneficial knowledge we can have. Because, it is this knowledge that enables us to know our Lord and worship Him in the manner He should be worshipped.

Without God allowing us to drink a drop from the boundless ocean of knowledge, we would have been completely lost. But God is all merciful. So He communicated with man: “Know, then, (O man,) that there is no deity save Allah…”. (Muhammad 47:19)

Prophet Muhammad: What most non-Muslims don’t know

There are many aspects of Prophet Muhammad’s (peace be upon him) personality that are not just admirable in and of themselves, but also exemplary because they highlight his great humility and approachability as a person, despite his high-ranking status as the last messenger of God, and as the indisputable leader of the Muslims.
