Islām is a way of life, which guides and assists mankind through every situation. For dealing with moments of grief too, Allāh ta'ālā has conveyed instructions through His Messenger sallallāhu 'alayhi wasallam. There can be few instances that cause greater grief than the death of a loved one. Following the instructions brought by Rasūlullāh sallallāhu 'alayhi wasallam will help lessen the grief and sorrow of the bereaved immensely, and make those who console them worthy of great reward. This is done through the Sunnah of ta'ziyah.

It is natural anthropological law that some people have more wealth than others. Likewise, some people are stronger and others are weak, some are well informed and others are less informed, etc.

Sultanul-Awliya, Hazrat Nizamuddin Awliya (R) is among the most renowned and revered saints of India. A huge railway station, the Hazrat Nizamuddin railway station, and an entire colony is named after him in New Delhi, referred to as the Hazrat Nizamuddin colony.

Man has evolved from a common parenthood as members of one human family, without any inherent superiority of one over the other. Mans’ evolution into nations and tribes is meant to foster individuality and facilitate mutual co-existence. It is not an appendage to determine nobility or superiority of individuals or nations. The only criterion for nobility is consciousness of Allah. Race and language are convenient labels of recognition and not the yardstick to determine nobility.

social mediaA key feature of the era we live in is the rapid development of technology and the continuous impact this has on our lives, both in terms of the way we live and how we spend our time. As Muslims we understand that the purpose of our life is to acquire the pleasure of Allāh ta‘ālā, by spending each moment of our life in accordance with His commands. As Allāh ta‘ālā is the All Knowing, He was completely aware of all material and technological developments that His servants would witness when He revealed the Glorious Qur’ān and showed us its practical application through the blessed life of Rasūlullāh sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam. Therefore, Alhamdulillāh, Allāh ta‘ālā has equipped the ‘Ulamā until the last day with the tools to guide the Ummah on how it should use any new developments, whilst not forgetting its ultimate objective.

The qabar/ grave is indeed a lonely place. In man’s journey to the everlasting hereafter, the qabr is his/her first stopover/station. Sadly, his so-called “permanent temporary” abode is abruptly vacated. His home, family, belongings and all others whom he had loved and lived with, are going to leave him/her all alone. ‘Yes’, they are soon going to desert him/her!
