Rabi ul Awwal and Birth of Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh)

The Blessed Month of Rabi ul Awwal is here .

It is in this Blessed Month that our dear Prophet-Prophet Muhammad SAW was born.
Among other significant events that occured during this blessed month of Rabi-ul-Awwal is:

1. Rasulullah [sallallaahu alayhi wasallam] was given Nubuwwat (prophethood) in this month.
2. According to many Ulama, Me’raaj [ascension to the heavens] occured in Rabi-ul-Awwal rather than Rajab.
3. Rasulullah [sallallaahu alayhi wasallam] arrived in Madina Munawwarah after Hijrah (migration) in Rabi-ul-Awwal.
4. Rasulullah’s [sallallaahu alayhi wasallam] demise was in this blessed month as well. (refer to Lataaiful Ma’arif pgs.135-136)

There are different types of Muslims, some pious and practicing and others far from Islam yet the basic level of love for  Prophet sallallaahu  alayhi wasallam is in the hearts of even those far from Deen. Having love for the Prophet sallallaahu alayhi wasallam is a part of Deen and how can a person love someone without knowing them?
Anas RA has narrated,

“None of you will have faith till he loves me more than his father, his children and all mankind.” (Bukhari)

We should therefore learn about the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam in our limited capacity and this knowledge can translate into love. In a Hadith it is mentioned;

On the day of Qiyamah the person closest to me will be the one who has sent the most Durood unto me.” (Tirmidh)

So loving the right people will mean being in the right place on the Day of Judgment. The beautiful aspect of this Hadith is to focus on not just what we do, but where we give our heart. If we give our heart to the best of creation despite being sinful people we will be in the best of company on the Day of Judgment. Love is based on something and love for the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam is based on Seerah.

We need to develop that love for him and for his Sunnah even though the Sunnah may seem strange and foreign and does not fit into society. We have to learn to love the Sunnah and we cannot have love for it if we do not have love for the Prophet sallallaahu alayhi wasallam. Human beings by nature like to imitate and it happens subconsciously even though we may say we do not imitate and we are unique. So we should imitate the life of the Prophet sallallaahu alayhi wasallam and not just his actions but also how he reacted in the different situations of his life. Learning Seerah can be the therapy practically applicable in our lives. In this age we should learn Seerah due to widespread ignorance and also anti-Islamic propaganda which surrounds us. The Prophet sallallaahu alayhi wasallam does not need defending but we should protect our Imaan and belief in him by studying Seerah and knowing the truth and we should have the right answers when negative things are said about him.

Ya habibi ya Muhammad
O my beloved, O Muhammad

I shall bestow my blessings upon the honorable Prophet

Pakistani Actor Hamza Ali Abbasi,ex aetheist to quit acting for Allah and to Spread Islam.

In a video shared by him on Twitter, Hamza Ali Abbasi spoke about his journey – how he became an atheist when he was 14-15 years old and how science “brought him back” being a theist when he went to the US.

“I want to spend the rest of my life talking about God,” Abbasi said in the video-sharing that his decision is based on 10 years research.

Abbasi, who recently married Naimal Khawar, said that now he will try to shape his life in accordance with Islam and will try to spread across the message through various platforms.

“Being an ‘ex-atheist’, I want to share the answers I have received about God with people. I don’t want to debate or convince people, I just want to share,” he said and added that if he will make any movie or show, then it will be about Islam.

babri masjid demolisher now a muslim

Man involved in Babri Masjid demolition now builds mosques to wash away guilt

Do you know that Kar sevak from Haryana who was part of Babri Masjid demolition, now preaches Islam, builds masjids ?He has built 90 Mosque so far.

Aamir, a former Shiv Sena leader from Panipat, Haryana often recalls the fateful day of December 6, 1992, that marked the demolition of Babri Masjid.

Aamir said that along with his friend Mohammed Umar, formerly Yogendra Pal, he had vowed to construct the Sri Ram Mandir at Ayodhya demolishing the masjid. Today, the two are fulfilling their pledge to renovate 100 mosques, in an attempt to purge themselves of their sins.

On December 1, 1992, Aamir reached Ayodhya to join thousands of kar sevaks coming from across the country. On December 6 that year, according to Aamir, he was the first man to climb the middle dome.

“We feared that the army might have been deployed in large number. But on ground there was hardly any security, that gave us a boost and we were mentally prepared to demolish the masjid that day,” said Mohammed Aamir.

Aamir along with many other kar sevaks from Sonipat and Panipat demolished the dome with spades and pickaxes.

“When I reached my home town Panipat after that I was given a hero’s welcome by the people,” Aamir said.

“But at home, my family’s reaction shocked me. My secular family denounced my actions. I had participated in the kar seva because I felt strongly about it, but I realized later that I was wrong.”

Mohammed Aamir, born a Rajput, said, “I realized that I had taken law in my hands and violated the constitution of India. Guilty, I embraced Islam.”

#Hijabisanidentity- Hijab walk to Stop the discrimination and marginalization of Muslim women and girls.

Freedom of religion is a fundamental human right in the Ghanaian legal system. To be specific Article 21 (c) of the 1992 Constitution states: “All persons shall have the right to freedom to practice any religion and to manifest such practice.”

Unfortunately, most Muslim women and girls living in Ghana have dealt with individuals who exert their biases and bigotry into institutional cultures. Thus, making it impossible for Muslim women to wear the hijab as part of their religious freedoms stipulated in the 1992 constitution.

The #Hijabisanidentity campaign pushes for the right of Muslim women who choose to wear the hijab to be free to do so without intimidation from any individual or institution.

Why do Muslim Woman Wear Hijab.

Recently, an invigilator of the West African Examination Council (WAEC) asked a candidate to remove her hijab before sitting her exams. This latest move sparked a recent social media campaign by Islam advocates dubbed: #Hijabisanidentity

They believe the successful campaign which culminated in a massive demonstration in some regions – North, Ashanti and Accra – will help shake up some traditionally-held cultural misconceptions about the female Muslim identity. On Saturday October 12, Ghanaian Muslim women marched for their right to wear the hijab. The #Hijabisanidentity campaign is still on.

Stop policing Women’s bodies!

Sinead o connor

Sinéad O’Connor Performs in Hijab.Says : ‘I have been a Muslim all my life and I didn’t realise it’

Dublin: Singer Sinead O’Connor stepped out in a traditional hijab with her son after converting to Islam in October.

The 52-year-old wore a bright red abaya and matching hijab when she appeared on “The Late Late Show” in Dublin on Friday night, reports ” the sun”

Earlier in the day, she arrived at the studio with her son, 15-year-old Shane Lunny, who looks exactly like his mom.

Sinead was dressed more casually in blue trousers, a matching belted shirt, and a navy cardigan. She complete the look with a dark blue headscarf. Shane carried his mother’s red abaya to the venue.

Shane apart, Sinead is also mother to 32-year-old Jake, 23-year-old Roisin and 12-year-old Yeshua.

In October last year, Sinead announced that she had converted to Islam, changing her name to Shuhada Davitt.

Sinéad O’Connor has described how she felt “at home” after reading the Koran and subsequently embracing the Muslim religion.

The singer, who has returned following a five-year hiatus from touring, announced her decision to “revert” to Islam almost a year ago and says she often wears the hijab as a means of signalling her new-found beliefs.

The word ‘revert’ refers to the idea that if you were to study the Koran you would realise that you were a Muslim all your life and you didn’t realise it. That’s what happened to me,” she said on Friday night’s Late Late Show.

“I am 52. I grew up in a very different Ireland to the one that exists now and it was a very oppressed country religiously speaking. And everybody was miserable; nobody was getting any joy in God.

”The singer, who has long captivated audiences with her views on Irish life, spoke about reading the scriptures as a child and later exploring other religious texts “trying to find the truth about God”. She left Islam until last because she held her own prejudices about the religion, she said.

Archeologists finds the World’s Oldest Rural Mosque in Israel

 Archaeologists in Israel have discovered the remains of one of the world’s oldest rural mosques, built around the time Islam arrived in the holy land,

world's oldest rural mosque

The Israel Antiquities Authority estimates that the mosque, uncovered ahead of new construction in the Bedouin town of Rahat in the Negev desert, dates back to the 7th to 8th centuries.

There are large mosques known to be from that period in Jerusalem and in Makkah but it is rare to find a house of prayer so ancient whose congregation is likely to have been local farmers, the antiquities authority said.

Excavated at the site were the remains of an open-air mosque — a rectangular building, about the size of a single-car garage, with a prayer niche facing south toward Makkah.

“This is one of the earliest mosques known from the beginning of the arrival of Islam in Israel, after the Arab conquest of 636 C.E.,” said Gideon Avni of the antiquities authority.

“The discovery of the village and the mosque in its vicinity are a significant contribution to the study of the history of the country during this turbulent period.”
