    Ashura by Saqib Hussain

    The angels are overcome with sorrow And cannot bear to see the innocent’s plight Silence is pierced by grief of those left behind In all of history, this must be the darkest night   The desert looks at itself in shock Innocent blood and tears are soaked in its sands By murdering the family of […]

    Part 1: The Peak of Eloquence – On society

    Nahjul Balagha (The Peak of Eloquence) uniquely sheds light on and has an impact on our lives from many aspects. Three areas were chosen to be looked at at our study circles: societal, familial and individual. The following article, part one of three series, will explore how it relates to concepts and practices at a societal level. […]

    Part 2: Reflections From Iraq: The Ziyareh

    The word Ziyarah (زيارة) originates from the Arabic زور literally translating as “to visit, or to meet” referring to the pilgrimage undertaken by Muslims to places associated with the Holy Prophet Mohammed (saw), his family, and other venerated figures within Islam. Interestingly, a closely associated Arabic term زيار rather aptly takes the meaning of ‘aid or […]

    Resurrected from the soil of suffocation

    I wake up in a society that shuns me, it shuns my religion and distorts my place within it until everyone is lead to believe that my religion actually oppresses me. A sad reality. My religion has been established to give my kind liberty and lift us from the soil society buried us in. My […]

    Until you visit the cemeteries

    This is Part 2 of a 4-part series on leading fuller lives by increasing our awareness of our death. The Quran contains a very short chapter called Al-Takaathur, containing only 8 verses, the first two of which say: “The mutual rivalry for piling up of worldly things diverts you. Until you visit the graves” (Quran […]

    Part 1: Reflections From Iraq: In the footsteps of the Imam

    I recently returned home after having been away for ten days. The taxi from the airport hastily brought me home. I walked up the driveway dragging my dusty suitcase and rang the doorbell nervously. He came running to the door at the sound. I realised then that I had missed the patter of his small […]

    Let’s talk about death

    I smiled as I searched down the alphabetically-ordered index of my newly acquired English-Arabic Quran. Instead of a series of verse references next to the word I was searching for, I found: “This word occurs more than 200 times in the Noble Quran. Mentioning every place will make the index very big”. That word was […]

  • World Hijab Day

    World Hijab Day

    In Islam, Hijab includes the way a person walks, talks, looks, acts and thinks. All of this should be done modestly and is applicable to both men and women. This statement defines hijab in the simplest way, however there are still many misconceptions about the hijab and what role it plays. The duty of the […]

    Is life better with trees?

    And there was only Him. Then He created all; earth, us, and beauty. Some breathe and some don’t, but all are alive. Dark or light, they’re all good and not bad, all beautiful and not ugly. And then He said to us “there is no creature on [or within] the earth or bird that flies […]

    Part 9: An Analysis of Surah Al-Fatiha – Misguidance in Islam

    Continuing the analysis of the last verse of Surah Al-Fatiha we discussed that the Qur’an categorises human beings into three different types. The first group of people are those that Allah (swt) had showered with bounties, as discussed in the previous article. The second and third groups of people will be discussed in this section, […]
