A Mother’s Ramadan

4 days of Ramadan had passed and I hadn’t fasted a single fast yet. And I had intended to fast this year eagerly awaiting its arrival. And I did try. I woke up, ate suhoor, prayed Fajr slept, woke up in the morning and that’s when the nausea began. I kept running upstairs to the…

Will This Ramadan Be Different?

“I feel nervous”, “How will I do it?” and other such phrases have crossed my mind just a few weeks ago, as I pushed through the working days in a fast-paced, on-the-go, on-your-feet-all-day kind of job in a kindergarten. While the excitement for Ramadan fills the air, while the countdown begins, while the pre-Ramadan workshops…

Parent’s Rights in Islam

Allāh the Exalted said: وَاعْبُدُوا اللَّهَ وَلَا تُشْرِكُوا بِهِ شَيْئًا وَبِالْوَالِدَيْنِ إِحْسَانًا وَبِذِي الْقُرْبَىٰ وَالْيَتَامَىٰ وَالْمَسَاكِينِ وَالْجَارِ ذِي الْقُرْبَىٰ وَالْجَارِ الْجُنُبِ وَالصَّاحِبِ بِالْجَنبِ وَابْنِ السَّبِيلِ وَمَا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَانُكُمْ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُحِبُّ مَن كَانَ مُخْتَالًا فَخُورًا Worship Allah and associate nothing with Him, and to parents do good, and to relatives, orphans, the needy, the…

Its advocates have striven immensely to promulgate their doctrine, hoping to make it appealing to the Muslim masses. Amazingly, they’ve even tried to substantiate its credibility by using arguments from the Quran and authentic Sunnah. What’s even more…

أَمْ خُلِقُوا مِنْ غَيْرِ شَيْءٍ أَمْ هُمُ الْخَالِقُونَ أَمْ خَلَقُوا السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ بَل لَّا يُوقِنُونَ Or were they created by nothing, or were they the creators [of themselves]? Or did they create the heavens and the earth? Rather, they are not certain. [Surah at-Tur, Ayah 35,36]  When an atheist asserts that coincidence is what led…
