WHERE IS THE “POT OF GOLD?”: QUEENIE’S CHANGE OF HEART

Being human beings and not angels we often desire material comforts and worldly recognition. Many rich and famous personalities who have searched for happiness and success in material things have reached the end of the rainbow and indeed found no pot of gold. Indeed Allah Ta’ala has kept the real pot of gold i.e. true happiness, peace of mind and eternal prosperity ONLY in his deen (Islam). This true happiness we will not find anywhere else but in the Deen of Islam. Allah Ta’ala the Most Wise says: “Whoever desires (and strives to gain) the harvest of the Hereafter, We increase him in his harvest; and whoever desires the harvest of

I REVERTED TO ISLAM BECAUSE OF A MAN WHO HAD ALZHEIMER’S

My name is Cassie. I am 23 years old. I graduated as a qualified nurse this year and was given my first position as a home nurse. My patient was an English gentleman in his early 80’s who suffered from Alzheimer’s. In the first meeting I was given the patient’s record and from it I could see that he was a convert to the religion of Islam, therefore he was a Muslim. I knew from this that I would need to take into account that some modes of treatment may go against his faith, and therefore try to adapt my care to meet his needs. I brought in some ‘halal’

I CHOSE TO BE MUSLIMAH INSTEAD OF A NUN

I was raised in a religious Christian family. At that time, Americans were more religious than they are now—most families went to church every Sunday, for example. My parents were involved in the church community. We often had ministers (Protestant “priests”) in the house. My mother taught in Sunday school, and I helped her.  I must have been more religious than other children, although I don’t remember being so. For one birthday, my aunt gave me a Bible, and my sister a doll. Another time, I asked my parents for a prayer book, and I read it daily for many years. When I was in junior high school (middle school),

Devil Under a Scarf: True Story of A Taboo Topic – Husband Abuse

Abdullah’s (name changed) Tale: Abused to the Point of Attempting Suicide, Allah Granted Him a Way Out I wanted to make a video, but I couldn’t. Even now that it’s all over, the very thought that my ex might watch it fills me with fear; fear for not only myself but my family. So, instead, I decided to write this anonymously. I hope that in some way it might help others understand and empower them to fight against domestic abuse in all its forms. I met my ex-spouse at the international university where we both studied. Everyone on campus glowed with admiration for this person, constantly singing their praises as

Their provisions will decrease and their ruler will be unjust.

read time: 2 min Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “If a community decreases the measure and weight (of sold grains or food), they will be overcome by poverty, their provisions will decrease and their ruler will be unjust.” [Ibn Majah, al-Bazzar, al-Baihaqi] We complain all the time about the evil of our rulers – how they cheat us, lie to us and are the cause of our ruin. It is easy to point fingers at others. Much more under our control are our own actions. But how much do we analyze what we do? The first lesson that we get from this hadith is that it is
