Islam that is not only a religion but also complete way of life which guides us about each and every matter of our lives. Islam even provides us guidelines about Choosing the name for a new born baby that is the topics of my today's post. Kids are one of the greatest blessings of Allah Swt on mankind. When a new baby takes birth in a family along with other issues an important issue that takes place is choosing a good name for the new born baby. Islam provides us guidelines that how we can choose a good name for newly born baby.
First guidelines that Islam gives us is that we should choose a good name for new born babies that are having good meanings. According to Sahih Hadith Prophet Muhammad Saw said You will be called on the Day of Resurrection by your names and the names of your fathers so have good names. So this Hadith clearly mentions that we should choose good names with good meanings. secondly Islam not oblige us to choose specific names of any area like Arabic or non Arabic names so we can keep names of any part of word but they must be good. Thirdly we should choose a name with whom Child we will be satisfied after growing up. Don,t keep a name that Child will reject himself. Fourthly the name should not contain any Shirk with Allah Swt. Keeping such name that contains Shirk is strongly forbidden and is a big sin. Fifthly keeping such name is encouraged in Islam like Abul Rehman, Abdul Raheem, Abdullah. Sixthly according to Sahih hadith Allah Swt likes Abdullah and Abdur-Rahman the most so try to keep these names. Eight Point is that we can,t keep name of Allah Swt for kids like Rehman, Razzaq, Raheem. Doing this is very common these days but keeping such name is Haram in Islam. so these where simple eight guidelines to keep the name of your newly born baby. I would also like to tell in this article that my name is Ahsan which means better and my name was kept by my Grandfather. May Allah Swt help us all in keeping good names for our Kids.
Jermaine Jackson Bigger Brother of famous American Pop Singer Michael Jackson who died last year has said that Islam Could save life of Michael Jackson. Jermine said Michael could be with us today if he would have accepted the Islam. Jermaine Jackson was giving the Interview on first death anniversary of Michael Jackson to UK Media on 25th June 2010. Jermine said it is only Islam that could save life of Michael and i am saying this by many perspectives. He said when a human knows that he is who? and why he has got this life then he himself comes on right path and gets power of making right decisions. He said Islam gives answers of all the questions about our life and tells the main purpose of our life.
Jermaine Jackson said that Michael Jackson was researching about Islam and Allah and i also given him many books about islam which he was reading. He also said that Michael Jackson was not against accepting the islam and he was coming to closer to it slowly. Jermaine Jackson himself accepted the islam after reading the Quran few years ago. Jermine says that i have felt lot of peace after accepting the Islam and its a beautiful religion. Jermine says that Muslim Umah is very lovely because their believe in God is very strong which never leaves them alone in any difficulty of life.
Jesus Christ Peace be Upon Him is considered a Prophet of God In Islam. In Islam Jesus PBUH is considered one of the mightiest Messenger of God and it is necessary for every Muslim to believe in Jesus Christ PBUH otherwise he is not a Muslim. Islam is the only Religion except Christianity in which it is necessary to believe in Jesus PBUH. Muslim believes as the Quran says that Jesus PBUH was born miraculously without any male intervention which most of Christians don,t believe. In Islam Jesus is also considered a Messiah (Christ).
Muslims also believe that Jesus done many Miracles with permission of God like giving life to dead. In Islam the purpose of Jesus PBUH coming to this world was same as of all the Prophets Giving message of God to humanity that God is one and worship him alone. If we talk about Mother of Jesus PBUH Mary Islam gives great respect to her. There is a complete Chapter with name of Mary In Quran. Quran says Mary was most Pious women of the World. Islam also believes that Jesus PBUH is not dead and he was picked up alive by God and he will return near Judgement day to this World. According to Quran Jesus was not Crucified on Cross and he was picked up alive by God. Islam also not believes that Jesus is son of God but a Prophet of God. Muslims also follow many sayings of Jesus Christ PBUH which Christians don,t follow like not drinking Wine, not eating Pork, Hijab of women, modest cloths for women. May Allah Swt help us all in following the true message of Jesus PBUH.
Where a True Muslim or Momin has many qualities like speaking truth, Worshiping Allah, Remaining happy, helping the needy people another Important Quality a true Muslim must have is that he never feels jealous of anyone. He never feels jealousy to see anything that other people have and he don,t but he thanks Allah for whatever Allah has given him. Jealousy is not only bad for the health of a person but it is also a sin according to islam. Prophet Muhammad saw said "Save yourself from Jealousy because Jealousy eats Virtues like Fire eats woods. There are many other Hadiths that explains how bad Jealous is for a person.
Heart of a true Muslims is always free of hatred, Jealousy and Nafaq. When he watches any person having something which he don,t have he feels good for that person instead of feeling jealousy. Many People becomes jealous of other because others are having more wealth then them. Such people should think that Allah Swt has given more wealth to that person and they have no right to feel jealous instead they should thank Allah for whatever Allah have given them. our Heart should be full of love for others and we should feel good for others instead of hating and feeling jealousy. Allah Swt loves those who loves others and Allah Swt don,t like those who are not happy with happiness of others. It is a really sad thing that today Jealousy is a very common thing in our Society. May Allah Swt save us all from this disease of Jealousy.
Famous Muslim Scholar Dr Zakir Naik that is perhaps most famous Islamic Scholar alive today on earth is banned to enter United Kingdom by UK Government two days ago. Dr Zakir Naik had to go to UK for a Islamic Peace Conference that is taking place from 24th June but UK Government has banned him from entering in UK. UK Interior Minister has said that Zakir Naik is banned because he has praised Usama Bin Ladin and he also said that Every Muslim should be a terrorist.
Now lets see are those two blames on Dr Zakir Naik correct due to which UK Government has banned him??? when i done research on this matter i found that UK Government has done the same with Zakir Naik what same Islam haters do. They quotes verses of Quran out of context to change their meanings. Same is done with Dr Zakir Naik. if we analyse this statement of Zakir Naik that Every Muslim should be a terrorist it is quoted out of context. Dr Zakir Naik said every muslim should be a terrorist against Injustice and bad people while terrorizing innocent people is totally haram in islam. But his statement is presented out of context due to which its meaning was changed. now if we talk about the issue of Usama Bin Ladin Dr Zakir Naik never said Usama is doing right. But Dr Zakir Naik said i don,t know Usama Bin Ladin is doing right or wrong and i cannot give a opinion about Usama Bin Ladin after watching CNN and BBC. Today Dr Zakir Naik has also done a press conference which was also showed in Peace TV in which he has announced to go to UK Court so that Ban can be removed from him. May Allah Swt protect this great scholar of Islam and help him facing all the difficulties.
Marriage is an Important part of Every Human and in our religion Islam as well it has a great Importance. According to Hadith Prophet Muhammad Saw said Nikah is my Sunah and whoever avoids my Sunah is not from us. In the past as well in discussed the Importance of marriage but today my topic is different Today my post is about selecting a good life partner with whom you can live your life happily according to guidelines of Islam. Normally People Selects their life partners due to different reasons such as Beauty, Wealth, Rank, Caste, congeniality etc. I personally have seen most people choosing their life partner due to beauty. Now lets analysis in light of Quran and Hadith that whom should we Choose for marriage?
According to Sahih Hadith Prophet Muhammad Saw said a person chooses his life partner due to four reasons. 1 Rank 2 Money 3 Beauty 4 Taqwa Virtue. One should choose who is best in Taqwa Virtue. Now let me write a Verse of the Holy Quran which says Women of purity are for men of purity and men of purity are for women of purity. So above Hadith and Verse of the Holy Quran are clearly saying that the thing we should look to find a life partner is Virtue. there is no problem if he is beautiful and having wealth as well but the most Important thing is Virtue. According to Sahih Hadith Islam has also given freedom to choose every person whom he wants to marry. Another Hadith also says that you should look him/her before marrying someone. So The Summary of article is that we should prefer a person for marriage who has Virtue. May Allah Swt help everyone in finding good life partners.

In Muslim World as well Football is famous Sports and People are watching FIFA World Cup with lot of Excitement. Although most of Muslim Countries don,t have great Soccer teams and good Muslim Football teams like Turkey, Iran and Saudi Arabia are not taking part in FIFA World Cup 2010 but still there are few Muslim Countries Teams that are playing FIFA World Cup 2010. These teams are Algeria and Nigeria. These two teams are not very good but they are still capable of doing an upset.
Algeria has played one match till now against Slovenia which they lost by 1-0. Although Algeria played better than Slovenia and they have more Ball Position during the match but they where not able to score any Goal and lost by 1-0. Now they have to face England in next match and in case of defeat they will be out of the Tournament. Key Players for Algeria are Rafik SAIFI and Hassan YEBDA. Another Muslim Country team is Nigeria that also lost its first match two good team like Argentina. In upcoming matches they will have to face South Korea and Greece. Lets see how Algeria and Nigeria performs in upcoming matches. Although there is lot of Enjoyment in watching FIFA World Cup 2010 but many people are missing big players like Zidane, Ronaldo, Beckham and Ballack. Spain and Brazil are the Favourite teams for winning the World Cup this year.
Today i am going to discuss on a very different type of topic that i have never discussed before on this blog and it is Jins in Islam. Islam is a religion that guides us about every matter of our life so i always call it a complete way of life. As Islam guides us about every matter of our life it has also guided us about the issue of Jins. First of all the question many people asks does Islam allows Jins relationship before marriage? Its totally forbidden in Islam to have Jins relation before marriage. It is called Zina and it is one of the biggest sin in Islam. Allah Swt says in Holy Quran Do not go near to adultery, Surely it is a shameful deed and evil, opening roads to other evils. Having Jins relation before marriage creates many Social problems and destroys a Society.
Next question that is asked is when a person should get marry according to Islam??? A person should get marry when he is adult and is able to bear the expenses of the family. Not doing Marriage without any reason in a sin in Islam. Prophet Saw said Nikah is my Sunnah and a person who rejects my Sunnah is not from us. Doing Jins relation with Wife after getting married is totally Halal and not Only Halal but also a Virtue according to Sahih Hadith. Purposes of Jins relation with wife are several like Satisfaction, birth of Kids, Saving yourself from Sin. Allah Swt says in the Holy Quran And among His Signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that ye may dwell in tranquillity with them, and He has put love and mercy between your (hearts). Verily in that are Signs for those who reflect. This Verse of the Holy Quran clearly says that Allah Swt has put a attraction between Male and Female but Allah Swt has also showed us the Halal way in shape of Nikah so that we remain away from wrong paths. The last point i would like to discuss in the end is of Oral jins relation with Wife? Many People asks this Question that is it Halal to have Oral Jins relation with Wife? According to most of the Islamic Scholars it is Haram in Islam. May Allah Swt helps us all in following Halal ways and remain us away from Haram ways.
Last week as well i written a post about the benefits of offering the Islamic Prayer that is known in Arabic as Salaah while in Urdu as Namaz. Today i will be discussing about Missing the Salaah and its Harms. Salaah is the most Important Islamic Prayer and Allah Swt has ordered more than 700 times in Holy Quran about offering Salaah to Muslims. Its obligatory on Every Muslim to offer five time Salaah daily. According to Sahih Hadith the question on the Judgement day that will be asked First of all will be about Salaah. Prophet Muhammad Saw said The first thing that a person will be questioned about is his prayers. so we can understand the Importance of Salaah from this Hadith that first of all we will be questioned about it.
Another Sahih Hadith says that Salaah is the Pillar of faith. Now this Hadith as well is explaining the Importance of Salaah and making it clear that for Emaan it is necessary to offer Salaah. Now i will describe another Hadith that we should take as a warning if we don,t offer Salaah. Prophet Saw said I am not responsible for the person that misses prayers intentionally. Another Hadith that can also be taken as warning says that Salaah is the difference between believer and a non-believer. If you will not offer Salaah you will not fell peace inside and nor Allah Swt will be happy with you. you yourself can Imagine how Important thing will be Salaah that Allah Swt has ordered more than 700 times in Quran to offer it. May Allah Swt help us all in offering the Salaah regularly.
There is a Greeting is almost Every Religion which a person gives to other when he meets with someone. The Islamic Greeting is "Assalamu Alaikum" that is an Arabic word and its English Translation is "May Peace be on you. When a person says "Assalamu Alaikum" to other the other should respond "Walaikum Assalam" which means May peace be on you as well. The Islamic Greeting is indeed very beautiful but the thing of sorrow is that many of us have left this beautiful Islamic greeting and started saying Hi, Hello instead of "Assalamu Alaikum". There are Many Hadiths of Prophet Muhammad Saw which tells us to Promote the Salam.
in one hadith Prophet Muhammad Saw said Promote the Salam because it increases Love. Another Hadith says that Whenever you meet someone say Salam. Saying Salam is not only a Virtue but a person who promotes Salam is also respected in the Society. Another Hadith says that don,t Enter in anyone's house until you don,t get permission and until you say Salam. Are we following these Islamic Guidelines of Going to someone's house? While talking about the Signs of Judgement day Prophet Saw said People will only say Salam to those people in last days whom they know. This Sign has come true and most of people don,t say Salam to people whom they don,t know. While the Islam says that we should say Salam to every person whom we meet. Saying Salam will only benefit you in many ways. it will increase your Virtues, it will increase your Emaan and it will increase love between people. May Allah Swt help us all in following this beautiful Sunnah of Prophet Saw of saying Salam to everyone.

Few days ago we told you that Islam is the fastest growing religion of the world and millions of people are entering into Islam all around the Globe. After 9/11 Islam is under attack by Media and Muslims are called as terrorists and Extremists but still Islam is growing rapidly in the world and people are converting to Islam after reading Quran and learning what Islam is? Now a famous UK Newspaper The Times has claimed that over 30 thousand women accepted Islam alone in UK in last 9 years.
According the The Times when Western Governments are talking about banning the Hijab the interest of Western women in Islam is increasing and they are accepting Islam rapidly. The Times also says that when more women are converting to Islam the Christian women that goes to Churches are reducing. Most of Converted Muslim women likes to offer Prayer in Mosque. A Very large number of Converted Muslim women comes to Regents Park Colony mosque in UK. Newspaper also says that Recent news about banning the Hijab in West is also increasing the interest of Western Women about knowing the Islam. Some other Sources claims that the Women that accepted Islam in UK in last 9 years are over 50 thousands. May Allah Swt bless all those sisters who has converted to Islam.
Generally known definition of elum e ghaib is "Knowledge of Uknown is called Elum e Ghaib" Correct Definition of Elum e Ghaib is knowledge of unknown WITH OUT ANY SOURCE is called Elum e Ghaib.
First we need to understand the true definition of Elum e Gaib it will help us in understanding Ayats.
Allah knows what every female carries and what the wombs lose [prematurely] or exceed. And everything with Him is by due measure.The knower of the unseen and the seen, the Great, the Most High.
Indeed, Allah [alone] has knowledge of the Hour and sends down the rain and knows what is in the wombs. And no soul perceives what it will earn tomorrow, and no soul perceives in what land it will die. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted.
Here Quran is referring to ELUM e GAIB means no one has the knowledge of Unseen except ALLAH . Allah gave example of Womb of mother that you don,t know what is in womb of mother because you don't know unseen Like saying that you don't know what is behind wall.
Here source comes :
When u see what is in womb of mother through some source then it is no more unseen . u r seeing it through some source then u r telling what is in womb of mother it is not knowledge of unseen because you are knowing it through some source. Quran didn't say that u cannot invent such tool which can see that what is in womb of mother. Quran is referring to unseen.
When your are telling what is happeing behind wall and in Afganistan through media or any other source Then this Elum will not b consider as Elum e Ghaib.
Quran 72 26
The Knower of the unseen! so He does not reveal His secrets to any,Except to him whom He chooses as a messenger; for surely He makes a guard to march before him and after him,
That is from the news of the unseen which We reveal to you, [O Muhammad]. And you were not with them when they cast their pens as to which of them should be responsible for Mary. Nor were you with them when they disputed.
Today I know what happened with ESSA(a.s) how ADAM(a.s) and HAWA(a.s) expelled from janat. What will happen after death.These are all news of unseen and Allah gave me this knowledge of unseen and my source is QURAN.I will never say that I have keys of Unseen because am using source and am knowing through some source
And Muhammad is not a withholder of [knowledge of] the unseen.
Quran Anam 59
And with him (Allah (SWT))are the keys of the Ghaib. None knows it but he, and he knows whatever is in land and the sea; not a leaf falls but he knows it, there is not a grain in the darkness of the earth nor anything fresh or dry, but is written in a clear record
Quran 12 102
This is of the announcements relating to the unseen (which) We reveal to you, and you were not with them when they resolved upon their affair, and they were devising plans
In 81 24 ALLAH clearly said that Muhammad(s.a.w) is the withholder of Unseen means He(s.a.w) dont have the knowldge of unseen rather I am giving him some news and some knowledge of Unseen He(s.a.w) is getting his knowldege through source through Wahi.
Allah has given him some special limited knowledge which was unseen for Muhammad s.a.w). Whole QURAN was totally unseen but Allah gave Muhammad(s.a.w) that unseen knowledge . Muhammad(s.a.w) source was differentand our source was Muhammad(s.a.w). Nither We nor Muhammad(s.a.w) got knowledge without any Source.Sourceless and unlimited knowledge of Unseen is only with Allah and which is real Elum e gaib.
Some people in Josh of "Ishq e Rasool" and in reality in hatred of some sect do GHULU openly say that Nabi(s.a.w) knwowledge was LA-MEHDOOD Limitless and his own Which is pure Shirk e Akbar
O People of the Kitaab! Do not commit ghulu' (excess) in your Deen and do not speak about Allah, but the Haqq (truth)
(Surah Nisaa, aayat 171)
1. Allah's Knowledge is Eternal, Prophet (SAW)' Knowledge was not eternal۔ 2. Allah's Knowledge Is Zaati, Prophet (SAW)'s Knowledge Is Granted (by Allah) 3. Allah's Knowledge Is Infinite, Prophet (SAW)'s Knowledge is Finite
