An amazing speech on this subject by Shaykh Muhammad Bin Yahya Al-Ninowy
For those who can understand Urdu, this will sooth your hearts, Insha’Allah!
Poem written by the great Lover of the Beloved Prophet (Sall’Allahu Ta’ala ‘alayhi wa’alihi wa’sallam), Imam Ahle Sunnat Ahmad Raza Khan Barelwi (Rahmathullahi Ta’ala alay).

A brother on another site has described the video very simply:
“It (the video) says Huzoor (Sall’Allahu Ta’ala Alayhi Wa’alihi Wa’sallam) ordered to build the mosque sana facing Jabal-e-deen. If a straignt line is drawn from the kibla of mosque sana it will pass through the peak of jabal-e-deen and will end at the center of Kaba. How could someone 1400 years show the exact direction for kaba from a far away city. Of course this is a miracle.”
This is a tribute to all those who are suffering because of oppression, famine, etc. The track is from Ashiq-e-Rasul‘s album Sultan of Madinah (Sall’Allahu Ta’ala Alayhi Wa’alihi Wa’sallam), titled Intercession.
The Diminishing of the Prophets (Sall’Allahu Ta’ala Alayhi Wa’alihi Was’sallam) Political Standards
We try our best to speak the meanings of Allah and His Prophet as relevant and as pertinent as these meanings are to reality and the truth of life around us. The reality that has been taking shape in this life around us in the past months and years is closing in on many of us in a way that we need to understand Allah and His Prophet better. It’s alright- this maybe the coldest day in the season, bear, with me even though it is not recommended to expose ourselves to an in climate weather more then is necessary. Brothers and sisters- a word of truth and honesty- what is meant for us, by the powers that be, is that we be split along sectarian and racial lines. These are the programs that are in progress that will impact tens of millions if not hundreds of millions of Muslims in a detrimental way if we continue to be withdrawn from Protective words of Allah and the guiding direction of His Prophet. We spent a good number of months, probably over a year, in trying to explain some of the roots that lay at the foundations of today’s intra-Islamic psychology. Because of the atmospherics and the social engineering that is imposed upon us by those who have power, maybe we are going to have to take something like a crash sequence of khutbahs to gain a little immunity to the sectarian bug that they want to contaminate our body with and infect our health with. The Muslim public has been for so long withdrawn from some of the basic elements that constitute a healthy Islamic mindset and psychology. Allah’s Prophet came to his people and to the rest of the people with a book- a scripture that in one sense can be reduced to a couple or few words: tawheed, Adl- the acknowledgement of Allah without any derivatives, competitors and parallels and the acknowledgement of the human condition as one defined by justice.

(For those that say the current traditions Mawlid was invented centuries after the passing away from this world of the Holy Prophet (Sall’Allahu Ta’ala Alayhi Wa’alihi Wa’sallam), should look at this piece, especially the dates)
The beginning of the celebration of the Meelad Shareef in its present form lies with the ruler of Irbil, Sultan Muzaffar whose full name is Abu Said Kukabri Ibn Zain al-Din Ali Ibn Baktagin, who is counted among the great Sultans and generous leaders. He was responsible for many other noble works as well. Among the many monuments set up by him was the Jami Muzaffari, which he had constructed near Mount Tasiyun.
Ibn Kathir (radi Allahu anhu) writes about Sultan Muzaffar as follows: “Sultan Muzaffar used to arrange the celebration of the Meelad Shareef with due honour, glory, dignity and grandeur. In this connection, he used to organise a magnificent festival. He was a pure-hearted, brave and wise Alim and a just ruler. May Allah shower His Mercy on him and grant him an exalted status. Sheikh Abu al-Khattab Ibn Dhiyah also wrote a book for him on the Meelad Shareef entitled ‘al-Tanwir fi Mawlid al-Bashir al-Nadhir’ (Enlightenment on the Birthday of the Bearer of Good News, the Warner). For this book Sultan Muzaffar awarded him a gift of one thousand dinars. Sultan Muzaffar remained the ruler until his death, which occurred in 630 A.H. in the city of ‘Akka when he had the Europeans under siege. In short he was a man of piety and noble disposition”.
Sibt Ibn al-Jauzi (radi Allahu anhu) wrote in “Mir’at al-Zaman” that Read the rest of this entry »
March 18 2007, LA California USA. Shaykh Hisham Kabbani Speaks to an audiance of over 500 attendents at the Senshin Buddhist Temple. There were christians, Jews, Buddist and Muslims in the audiance.
Why don’t we see this sort of thing in the mass media. The media only want to show people who shout ’Kaffir’this and ‘Kaffir’ that. Whenever a Muslim talks about peace, it is shunned to one side, but when a Muslim does something contraversial, it is the top headline for the rest of the week. PATHETIC WESTERN MEDIA!!!
May Allah remove the hatred in our hearts, and enlighten our hearts with love for each other.
What is Real Love 1 – A Sufi Perspective:
What is Real Love 2 – A Sufi Perspective:
In the battle of Uhud, one of the eyeballs of Sayyida Qatadah bin Noman (Radi Allah Ta’ala Anhu) was plucked out and fell on his cheek. He was in great pain and agony. The Sahaba decided to free him from the pain by cutting off his eye completely. One of the Sahaba advised that he be taken to Holy Prophet (Sallal Lahu Alaihi Wa Salam). Holy Prophet (Sallal Lahu Alaihi Wa Salam) put the eyeball back into its place with his blessed hand. He prayed, saying: “O! My Allah! Make his eye beautiful.” Sayyida Qatadah’s (Radi Allah Ta’ala Anhu) eye was more beautiful than the other one. He used to see more clearly with that eye.
Durood Shareef (from Dalail ul Khairat)
This Durood Shareef should be read 1000 times daily for success in this life & the Hereafter.
“ALLAHUMA SALLE ALA SAI-YE-DE-NA WA-MAU-LA-NA MUHAMMADIN A-DA-DA MAAFI IL-MILLAH-HE SA LA TAN DA-A-E MA TAMBE DA -WA –ME MOL KILLAH”.
O’Allah shower blessings upon Muhammad (Sallal Lahu Alaihi Wa Salam)our master in the number that is in Thy knowledge, such that those blessings may continue forever eternal as Thy Kingdom.
The Sweet Holy Prophet (Sallal Lahu Alaihi Wa Salam) was born in spring, a time which is associated with new life as the leaves start growing on trees again, plants start growing etc. In the same way the coming of the Sweet Holy Prophet (Sallal Lahu Alaihi Wa Salam) into our lives is like spring as it is due to his teachings that we are able to give life to our dead souls. Green is associated to spring, symbolising nature, new life…..
It has been reported in the hadith that if anybody reads the following Durood Sharif 1000 times on the day of JUMMA, one will see one’s place (abode) in AL-JANNAH before or at the moment of death.
“ALLA HUMMA SALLE ALA MUHAMMADIWWA AALE HE ALFA ALFA MARRA”
O’Allah send blessings upon Muhammad (Sallal Lahu Alaihi Wa Salam)and the family of Muhammad (Sallal Lahu Alaihi Wa Salam)a thousand thousand times.
The permissibility to say ‘Ya Muhammad!’ [May Allah bless him and grant him peace]
The sensitive issue of whether or not Muslims can say the words ‘Ya Rasool Allah’ or ‘Ya Muhammad!’ [May Allah bless him and grant him peace] needs to be clarified, since this issue divides the Muslim community and causes a great deal of friction among the Muslims throughout the world. Basically, there appears to be what we could label as two “schools of thought”. One insists that saying that stating “Ya Rasul Allah is ‘shirk’ and that any Muslim proclaiming it in fact goes outside the pale of Islam. Now the other School believes that it is indeed permissible to say so – based on evidences from the Salaf, and the tafsirs of later day scholars. However, they do not insist that one must proclaim this – or that it is even a fard to do so, rather, it is permissible to do so. This is, and always has been, the stance of the Ahl al-Sunna.
