Madrasa Diaries | Chapter 1

“Repeat after me boys. Alif.” “Alif.” “You. Yousef, come and sit here in the front.” The teacher yelled. Yousef gingerly got up from the back of the class and complied. “Okay, good! Again. Louder. Alif.” He felt a hand on my thigh. I didn’t dare look down, he stared into my book and I tried…

Have We Abandoned Ilm?

Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah صلى اللّٰه عليه وسلم said, “Whoever travels a path in search on knowledge, Allah will make easy for him a path to Paradise.” [Sahih Muslim, 2699] Imagine yourself, walking through the doors of a hall that is filled with tables and chairs from one end to the next,…

The Art of Reading

“I never get enough of reading. When I see a book the first time, it feels as if I see a treasure. If I say that I have read 20,000 volumes, then it is (even) more and I’m still reading.” – Imam Ibn Al Jawzi رحمه الله Just like you can’t have sunshine without the sun,…

You Have A Gift!

A wise man once said: “Time is free, but it’s priceless. You can’t own it, but you can use it. You can’t keep it, but you can spend it. Once you’ve lost it you can never get it back.” They say: “sharing is caring”. In essence, that’s very true, but do we really share our…

The Rhythm of Time

Time moulds you into something you are not. It has an art of transformation that leaves you spellbound. It calms down the rebels, honours the humiliated, frees the shackled, shatters the mighty, guides the lost, educates the innocent, enriches the illiterate and defeats the arrogant. With time, your obsession dies, soul grooms, heart heals and…

Miracles – Leap of Faith

Then The Veil Was Lifted

‘To be gifted with motherhood, is a beautiful blessing. Not only does the news enlighten the life of the mother-to-be herself, but those near and dear ones around her. While the time nears to bring the baby to the world, the soon-to-be mother realizes how much she loves the baby within her body that she can’t…

Makki VS Madani Surahs

It was always interesting to hear/read at the start of an explanation about a Surah whether it was Makki or Madani. The Quran comprises of 86 Makki Surahs and 28 Madani Surahs. Ofcourse whats generally understood is that the Surahs revealed in Makkah are Makki and those in Madinah are Madani. This is a slight misconception….

Umm Musa – Faith VS The Nile

When we think of Muslim Heroines, we may instantly think of the Mothers of Believers or the Female Companions رضي الله عنهم around the Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم. Rarely do we explore or reflect on the lives of the women who were around at the time of the previous Prophets, such as Bilqis – the…
