Gratitude, dua, and acceptance

By: Haqqseeker



Glory to Allāh and Salutations on Rasulullāh Sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam

This Dunyā, with all its glitter and glamour, is a very enticing place. At times we get so carried away by it that we become its slave and forget our Rabb. We start living a life that is totally against the commands of Allāh Ta’ala and the Sunnāh of Rasulullāh (Sall-Allāhu ‘alayhi wasallam).

Accessibility, acceptance, and education: being Muslim with disability


By: Najah Zaaeed


We live in a world in which people are increasingly facing various challenges, many of which affect their well-being and lifestyles. Unfortunately, Muslims with disabilities are sometimes faced with barriers within their own Muslim communities. Recently, the Muslim Social Research Network launched a global study to understand the needs of Muslims with disabilities in the U.S., UK and Canada. The findings will be used to educate Muslim organizations about the challenges their community members with disabilities endure and provide recommendations on how to improve services, communication, and inclusion.

After Ramadan: Just Keep Going


By: Bayyinah

Dear Muslims, Ramadan is over but by Allah’s help we will remember Allah and read His book throughout the year!

Among the signs of acceptance of a good deed is when it is followed up by other good deeds.

Make your fasting, tarawih, Quran recitation in Ramadan count! Keep going strong, even after Ramadan.

The Art of Advice

As humans, it’s natural for us to make mistakes, but as Muslims we should be able to give advice to our brothers and sisters who slip up, and also we must learn to accept advice from them when we are the ones who slip up. As Umar Ibn Al-Khattab (r) said “There is no goodness in people who don’t give advice, and there is no goodness in people who don’t like to be advised.” So Naseeha (advice) plays a big role in making this ummah stronger , if done correctly.

From what I have observed, Muslims nowadays are facing problems with the way they advise others and with the way they receive the advice themselves.

Giving Advice

Sincerity– Having the right intention is the most important thing. Your sole purpose of giving advice should be to please Allah and not to embarrass the person or show them that you are a better Muslim.

The right attitude – You should use kind words and avoid being rude, in other words, always be humble  .The person you are advising should not feel as if you are judging them. The main reason as to why most Muslims or people in general reject advice is because of the language used and the way it is put forth.

Secrecy – If you were to advice someone in public, it would mean exposing their faults to everyone, this sort of embarrassment is something that nobody would like to experience, so as Muslims we have to make sure that we advise our brothers and sisters in private. You can either have a private conversation with them or if you don’t know them personally an email would be a nice idea.

Don’t get angry – If the person responds in a bad way or rejects your advice, don’t get angry and just let it go, you have done your part as a Muslim brother/sister and it is up to them if they want to act upon your advice. Getting angry would contradict the whole point of giving advice.
