Beating Procrastination: Keeping a Daily Relationship with the Quran

Source: http://productivemuslim.com/

Procrastination affects us all – however, the most serious procrastination is the one that keeps us away from Allah’s path and away from good deeds.

It’s interesting how people normally procrastinate to do good deeds or beneficial actions, but would rarely procrastinate when it come to bad deeds or useless tasks! It reminds me of what Imam Zaid Shakir said in our recent interview with him, he said clearly ”procrastination is from shaytaan”.

I want us to tackle a growing problem amongst many Muslims today: It’s the procrastination from reading/reciting the Quran on a daily basis. We call it procrastination, but in some cases, it can be called complete abandonment (may Allah protect us).

What does Quran says about Apostasy? What is the punishment for Apostasy in Islam? Does Islam allow the freedom of religion? Is there any punishment for the person who changed his/her religion? This post is going to cover all of you questions regarding to Freedom of Religion and Apostasy in Islam by Quran.

It is fact that Islam is most misunderstood religion of the world. One of the reason behind the fact is “anti Islamic websites” who are more in numbers than Islamic website. Those anti websites provide fake information, half verses of Quran and share the information without any base. The purpose of such websites are to make people hate Islam and its teaching.

Without any commentary and putting my addition words to explain the verse of Quran. I am going to share some verse from Quran which are going to prove that there is no punishment of apostasy in Islam because religion is a person’s own concern which belong to only Allah and only Allah can punishment or reward for the acts which are wholly done for Him.

There is no Compulsion in Religion:

There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion. The right course has become clear from the wrong. So whoever disbelieves in Taghut and believes in Allah has grasped the most trustworthy handhold with no break in it. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing. – Quran 2:256

And had your Lord willed, those on earth would have believed – all of them entirely. Then, [O Muhammad], would you compel the people in order that they become believers? – Quran 10:99

Nouman Ali Khan is a young, dynamic daee, who approaches Islam in a sympathetic, understandable and practical way. He moved to the United States at a young age, and rediscovered the beauty of Islam while in college, from which he was motivated to learn it in greater depth. After studying Arabic in Saudi Arabia and later in Pakistan, he founded the Bayyinah Institute, under which he has successfully trained thousands to master the Arabic language.

While his dakwah activities are centred in the United States, his lecture sessions, which cover a variety of topics, are available on You Tube. His appeal largely stems from his ability to put religion in the relevant social context – his realistic approach and acknowledgement of the social background in which most people live – has made him popular especially among the young adults.

HOTD: What is your favourite surah/hadith?

Nowadays it’s Surah al Qasas.

HOTD: Which of the Companions of the Prophet do you identify closest with or is your favourite?

Mus’ab Ibn Umar Embassador of the Qur’an!

HOTD: Who are your modern day role models?

People you guys don’t know. Friends that are much older and have raised great children and I only wish to accomplish what they have with their kids.

HOTD: Someone wants to come back to Islam but doesn’t know where to start. What would you tell him?

The fact that they’re reading this means they already started. Talk to Allah and tell Him your situation. Ask Him for counsel. He will bring people and opportunities into your life you couldn’t even have imagined.

HOTD: What makes you stand out from other prominent dae’es is your relatively young age. What made you decide to take this path so early in life?

The End of Every Matter is Better

By: Tareq Al-Suwaidan

(قال الله تعالى (وللآخرة خير لك من الأولى
!! إن أول ما يخطر على أذهاننا في تفسير الآية أن الدار الأخرة خير لنا من الدنيا

.
..ولكن الآية تحمل معنى أوسع يقول : عاقبة كل أمر لك خير لك من أوله
ولذلك فإن بقية السورة كلها تأكيد لهذا المعنى
ألم يجدك يتيما) هذا أول الأمر (فآوى) هذا آخره)
ووجدك ضالا) هذا أوله (فهدى) هذا آخره)
ووجدك عائلا) هذا أوله)
،،فأغنى) هذا آخره)
.
, فذكر نفسك دائما أنك تتعامل مع رب كريم
من أوصافه سبحانه وتعالى أنه يختبر العبد بأول الضيق ثم لابد أن يفرّج وينتهي الأمر بالسعة
.
..لابد أن تكون الآخرة خير من الأولى في كل أقدار الله وتكون الآخرة خير من الأولى لمن رضي عن ال
(من احمد الهاشمي فرج الله عنه)
