السلام عليكم و رحمة الله وبركاته

Abu Ayyub al-Ansari narrated that Allah’s Messenger ﷺ said: “He who fasts Ramadan, and six of Shawwal, it will be (in terms of rewards) as if the fasted a whole year.” [Muslim, at-Tirmidhi, Abu Dawud, Ahmad, Ibn Majah]

“A person who has missed days of fasting in Ramadan may fast the optional six days of Shawwal with the intention of both making up for these missed days and observing the optional fasting of six days of Shawwal. He or she will then get double benefit simultaneously: making up for the missed days and getting the reward of fasting the six days of Shawwal, for it is established in Islam that one’s acts are judged by one’s intentions.However, it is recommended that one makes up for the missed fasts separately from fasting the six days of Shawwal [so as to get extra reward].” Sheikh `Atiyyah Saqr, former head of Al-Azhar Fatwa Committee.

It is highly recommended to fast six days of the month of Shawwal, but it is not obligatory. Those who want to fast can fast after `Eid Al-Fitr any six days during Shawwal. It is not required to fast six days continuously without any interruption. One can fast according to convenience any time during the month.

Yes this is a re-post but then again it is worth it. We kick of the Bayyinah Dream Program series by revisiting a very volatile subject. It can be as small as a comment on Facebook or as large as a 5000 strong protest. In the “freedom of speech” era we  encounter attacks/insults on Islam in many shapes and forms and therefore it is critical for us to react (if at all) in a manner that is guided by the Quran. This time from Surah Falaq. Yeah really.

Aspiring Vision


بســــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــم الله الرحمن الرحــيــم 
السلام عليكم و رحمة الله وبركاته

Take this:

Abu Huraira reported that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said:

“I swear by Allah that I supplicate for Allah’s forgiveness and turn to Him in repentance more than seventy times a day.”

Al-Bukhari,kitab ad-Da’awat 11/101

We’ve heard and read stuff life the above all too often. It’s almost a cliche. The ultimate example of the Sunnah and the high standards of the Companions are almost like fairy tales for us. We hear about their perennial legacies and can barely imagine ourselves even close to being as they were. Seriously, seeking Allah’s forgiveness the entire night, spending so much time with the Quran, floods of good deeds and what not! Is there any hope for us mortals?

Checking Our Brightness


بســــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــم الله الرحمن الرحــيــم 
السلام عليكم و رحمة الله وبركاته

You’re sitting comfortably in your room when all of a sudden, the electricity goes off. It becomes completely dark. You can’t see a thing. Although it is your own house, life comes to an inconvenient, complete halt.That’s because you can’t see a thing! You dare not move, in the fear that you may knock something over or worse still, you may stumble and hurt yourself. Uncomfortable and unnerving, isn’t it?

Now fast forward to an unknown time in the future……when it will be dark like this and even worse…..
when you…. and I…… and all of mankind…..will be gathered in the dark, in front of a bridge…..
a bridge that is sharper than a sword and thinner than a hair…..
a bridge called as-Siraat…….the bridge over Hellfire.
