Maintaining the Momentum

  Brothers and Sisters, Ramadan has bid us farewell yet again. May Allah swt accept our fasting, prayers, and charitable acts. This sacred month has offered us the space to practice mindfulness and spiritual nourishment as we untangled the many thoughts, emotions, and habits that we have been distracted from attending to over the year.

From Arabic into Latin

  From Arabic into Latin How the Muslim Civilization Shaped the Renaissance In his speech on “Islam and the West” at Oxford University in 1993, Prince Charles observes: “If there is much misunderstanding in the West about the nature of Islam, there is also much ignorance about the debt our own culture and civilization owe […]

Fasting and Spiritual Maturity

  Fasting is not starvation; it is a spiritual discipline that awakens our Fitrah, or natural disposition towards God, and keeps in check different negative traits of our human ego. Thereby, through mindful fasting, our souls are able to transform from a soul that has become accustomed to evil tendencies to a serene soul firmly […]

When Islam Was a Model of Tolerance for Europe

              “Let the Muslim be my master in outward things rather than the Latin dominate me in matters of the spirit. For if I am subject to the Muslim, at least he will not force me to share his faith. But if I have to be under Frankish rule and united with the Roman […]

  A Life of Trivialities Brothers and Sisters, Allah (SWT) states, “Know that the life of this world is but a play, a passing delight, a beautiful show, a cause of boasting among you and quest for more riches and children. It is like the rain that causes the plants to grow, and this gives delight […]

Keys to Enliven Your Salah, Part 6

Understanding Sujud (Prostration To revive our prayer, we need to recognize the spiritual and moral implications of what we do and say during Salah. Failing to recognize the meaning of what we say and do will turn our Salah into a series of machine-like movements that do not lead to spiritual maturity or moral growth. […]

How to Revive Your Prayer, Part Five

   Improve Your Mental Preparation   What is the part that, if missed, will turn your prayer into a series of mumbled words and machine-like movements? Definitely, it is Munajah (intimate conversation with Allah U) that I covered in the first part of this series on reviving our prayers. For this Munajah to be present […]

Keys to Enliven Your Salah, Part 4

  Creating a Quiet Environment  As I was visiting a patient in hospital, the afternoon prayer was due. Praying close to one of the corners of the room, I was interrupted by a nurse giving her instructions to the patient in a fairly loud voice. Noticing that I was praying, she regretfully kept apologizing and […]

Keys to Enliven Your Salah, Part Three

Observing how Muslims offer their Salah, one can easily notice that they correctly stand, bow, prostrate and sit. However, some may miss an essential part of prayer, without which Salah is not valid; that is, “Tuma’neenah.” What is “Tuma’neenah”? It basically means praying so calmly that you do not connect two movements together and that […]

Keys to Enliven Your Salah, Part 2

In the first section, we recognized the concept of Munajah (intimate conversations) with Allah U and how it permeated throughout the Prophet’s Salah. In this section, we will learn, through the recitation of al-Fatihah, that Salah is not one way conversation; rather, it is an actual conversation between us and Allah U. Abu Hurayrahtsaid: I […]
