Two years ago, prior to a sweltering Ramadan, I made a list of all the things I was going to complete. However, by the tenth day, I was depleted of my imaan boost. After ‘Eid al-Fitr, I looked over my list.
But they seem so easy to accomplish… what went wrong? I believe the problem was that I aspired to reach so many goals in such a short amount of time without really thinking about...
Opportunity to repent is among the most important blessings from the Merciful Lord. Given our propensity to fall into sins in a world that beckons towards evil at every step, not taking help from this opportunity is probably the biggest and most dangerous folly that anyone can commit. Consequences of leaving this world with unpardoned sins are too dreadful to imagine.

"One of the most beautiful sounds in the world is the Muslim call to prayer," Freeman said as he sat down with an imam at a mosque.
Freeman asked the imam what the origin of the azan is and how the muezzin (the one who calls the prayer) is chosen. "Meeting Muslims face to face, I've learned that Islam aims for people to live in peace," Freeman said in the episode.

That which brings about attentiveness of the heart consists of two matters.The first of these lies in possessing unoccupied time and an unoccupied heart, and the second lies in making one’s heart understand the importance of worship.
"O vicious world! Do not try to snare me.., I am beyond your temptations and pitfalls ... " (Nahjul Balagha, letter 45). Imam Ali a.s. also presents powerful ideas for success in life’s journey (letter 31). Let us build our lives on the solid foundation of a worldview taught by the Holy Quran and Ahlulbayt. Has the time not come to join hands and, together, join the journey to Paradise?
Tragic events of history are normally remembered for some years. Fervently in the initial years, then sedately, with passion decreasing each year and eventually they are all but forgotten. Time takes it toll. Time is a great healer, they say. Wounds and hurts lose their bite with time. But not so with Muharram. The event of Karbala seems to defy the norm.. Why? How is this even possible?
Islam teaches us that life is but a short journey, with the aim of preparing for our real, eternal life after death. Central to these beliefs is the importance of daily prayers, which are offered on time, every single day in worship of our Creator. The problem? Life gets in the way. But what if...
The question some times is asked as to why should a Muslim pray only in Arabic language and not his mother tongue.
It may first seem logical that every Muslim should pray through his own mother language, so that he may understand what he say; but a little more thinking and study, <read more>
