The Pleasures of Paradise

The Pleasures of Paradise …’Wish,’ and he will wish and wish… Allah Ta’ala has said in the Quran (translation of meaning): “And give good news (O Muhammad) to those who believe and do good deeds, that they will have gardens (Paradise) in which rivers flow….” (Quran 2:25) Allah Ta’ala has also said (interpretation) : “Race one with another for forgiveness from your Lord and for Paradise , whose width is as the width of the heavens and the earth, which has been prepared for those who believe in God and His messengers.. ..” (Quran 57:21) Allah Ta’ala has said in the Quran (translation of meaning): “But those who believe and

At the face of death

At the face of death by Amatullah. A heart-touching story… learn from it. This is something that is very personal and important to me. I hope that you will learn and benefit from it.

“Where are the brothers you once knew?…..” “Where are the brothers you once knew? Where are the companions you once knew?
