The Beloved (Sallal Lahu Alaihi Wa Salam) – 3

We used to consider miracles as Allah’s Blessings, but you people consider them to be a warning. Once we were with Allah’s Apostle (Sall’Allahu Ta’ala Alayhi Wa’alihi Wa’sallam)  on a journey, and we ran short of water. He said, “Bring the water remaining with you.” The people brought a utensil containing a little water. He placed his hand in it and said, “Come to the blessed water, and the Blessing is from Allah.” I saw the water flowing from among the fingers of Allah’s Apostle (Sallal Lahu Alaihi Wa Salam), and no doubt, we heard the meal glorifying Allah, when it was being eaten (by him). (Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 56, Number 779)

Durood Shareef

Reading this Durood Sharif 80 times after the Fard of the Asr prayer on Friday. Before standing up it results in 80 years sawaab recorded for the individual and 80 years of sins forgiven by Allah Tallah. A sacrifi ce of about fi ve minutes every week can lead to such blessings from Allah Almighty.



O’Allah send blessings upon Muhammad (Sall’Allahu Ta’ala Alayhi Wa’alihi Wa’sallam) our chief the unlettered Apostle, and send blessings upon his family, and Thy favours and Thy salutations.

The Beloved (Sallal Lahu Alaihi Wa Salam) – 2

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.


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.

Mawlid – The Ahle Sunnah Way!

For those that think reading Naats and Salat o Salaam (standing up or sitting down) is just a “Barelwi” thing, should re-evaluate their views and broaden their horizon by watching these two clips.

Praising the attributes of the Sweet Holy Prophet (Sallal Lahu Ta’ala Alaihi Waleihi Wa Salam) is a trademark of the Ahle Sunnah Wal Jama’ah.

The Beloved (Sallal Lahu Alaihi Wa Salam) – 1

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…..   

Durrod Shareef

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.


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.

Saying “Ya Rasool’Allah (Sallalahu Alaihi Wassalam) Madad”

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.
