Islam and Spiritualism

 Patience is one of the most emphatic moral and spiritual values taught by Islam. This is the value that each practicing Muslim should affirm in his life. The greater he is patient in hours of affliction, the better blessings he shall achieve….

Arrogance is the most despised attribute in the opinion of Islam, because the essence of its teachings delves upon utmost humility among mankind. The Holy Prophet (PBUH) is quoted on pride; “The one who possesses half of mustard seed of Kibr in his heart shall not be granted admission to Jannah...

 

Only 80 of the 6,666 verses in the Quran are directly concerned with legal matters and even these are addressed through an ethical lens....

 
Social Responsibility in Islam
Kaniz Fatma, New Age Islam

Social responsibility is accorded the highest importance in Islam. Its scope extends to all of humanity, Muslims and non-Muslims alike...

It’s only a true believer who will understand and know without a doubt that Allah alone is the One who Bestows help and protection and the One Who Withholds, and He alone is the Remover of Harm and Affliction....

 

Therefore today we need to follow and promote teachings of human-respect so that the doubts and hatred towards Islam can be removed from the people and all people become closer to appreciate values of humanity....

Yes, your patience will be tested. Your character will be tested with gain and loss in wealth, health, power and authority, and knowledge. If these tests are frequent, know that it is for your own good....

 

At the heart of most things we later regret – whether it’s the killing of innocent people, insults that can never be taken back, a divorce that breaks apart a family, giving up on Du’a, giving up advocating Islām, or earning from an impermissible source of income – is haste...

My Dastegeer: Ghaus ul Azam Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jeelani (RA)
Mushtaq ul Haq Ahmad Sikandar, New Age Islam

These all Sufis, Rishis and their shrines are revered because they served the cause of Islam and humanity with dedication and selfless love. They served the masses without any distinction based on colour, creed, sex, region or religion. Most of them during their lifetime never sought any favor from the rulers of their times and even resisted their attempts of atrocities and ill treatment against the poor folks....

The same applies during war. If a prisoner is captured by the enemy and perhaps asked how many soldiers are with his army, he can lie about the number in order to protect his own fighters. As for reconciling people, this type of lying is not meant to inflict harm but rather to be beneficial....

 

It must be remembered that Dua can only be made to Allah SWT; Dua to anyone else is pure shirk, which is neither forgivable nor pardonable. Therefore, Dua must exemplify in itself, utmost humility and the subservience of the one making the Dua....

 

Dua is the essence of worship. It therefore follows that Dua is the noblest and greatest form of worship. It emerges from the inner depths of the heart, an impelling yearning and a silent yell, seeking Allah’s good pleasure. Dua is complete and full submission to the Creator…

 

Many people only focus on the fear of God, when we should balance fear with hope in God’s mercy and goodness. God encourages us to think positively about Him….

 

Many believers, however, still try to find proofs of God’s existence and use these proofs to convince nonbelievers. Many, particularly in the West, have misconceptions about how Muslims view God....

 

It is important to note that not only will we be judged on the basis of whether we fulfilled our duties towards God, but also whether we fulfilled our duties towards our fellow men, or Haqooqul-Ibaad as they are called....

 

Among all the nine days of fasting, the ninth day holds prime importance and all the bounties and rewards are double for fasting on this particular day. It is also to show solidarity with the pilgrims and to prepare for the upcoming festivities of Eid ul Azha....

 

The Muslim must understand the value of his life, increase his worship of Allah and persist in doing good deeds until the moment of death...

 

Sūrah al-Tahrīm, ‘The Prohibition’, is a Medinan Sūrah comprised of 12 verses, with an underlying theme of Tarbiya Al-Awlād: family relationships and how to nurture them. Sūrah al-Talāq and Sūrah al-Tahrīm, which appear side by side in the Qur’ān, both start with the words “Yā Ayuha Al-Nabi” (O Prophet), directly addressing the Prophet (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam) and discuss how family can become a trial for us for two opposite reasons....

 

Allāh (Subhanahu wa Taalā), through His Great Majesty, created mankind knowing they would commit sins. Does this mean we were doomed from the onset? Or, is it possible to have hope in al-Raḥmān? Or, even more miraculously, can a sinner be honoured through an act which is carried out after a person falls into sin?...

 

The aspect of divine help, at Badr has been beautifully summed by Martin Lings in his biography of the prophet, “the presence of the angels was felt by all, as a strength by the faithful and as a terror by the infidels, but that presence was visible or audible to few, and in varying degrees....

 

They also had the privilege of working so closely to the Prophet and observing him in his exemplary conduct, getting groomed by him that it was but natural to assume a disposition which could be close to perfection....

The concept of family in Islam was generated from the union of the very first human beings on this Earth, sent forth by the command of Allah – Adam and Eve. This event marked the beginning of the foundations of a family unit in Islam. In today’s world there seems to be an obvious pattern of anarchy, chaos and a discernable deterioration in the familial fabric....

 

The whole of life is as music and in order to study life we must study it as music. It is not only study; it is also practice which makes man perfect. If someone tells me that a certain person is miserable or wretched or distressed, my answer will be that he is out of tune....

 

In Haqooqul Ibad, every relation enjoys a certain status wherein it is characterized by certain obligations and duties towards each other, which if reneged upon elicits Allah’s displeasure. The social sphere of our daily lives consists of our family, ties of kinship and blood relations and then neighbours....

Under the gentle guidance of the Sustainer who is closer to me than the beating of my heart, I travelled through time to wounded parts of myself and allowed this body to experience the tragedy of unexpressed pain and emotion...
