1st Month of the year

Muharram is the first month of the Islamic calendar, known as Allah's month and declared 'sacred' in the Quran. Allah Ta'ala says "Four of them (Zul-Qadah, Zul-Haj, Muharram and Rajab) are sacred." (Surah Tawbah)

His full name is Khalid ibn Waleed Al Qurashi Al Makhzumi. His mother was Lubabah As Sughra, the sister of Hazrat Maymoonah (Radiyallahu Anha), one of the blessed wives of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), and the sister of the mother of Hazrat Abdullah ibn Abbas (Radiyallahu Anhum). He was one of the nobles of the Quraish in the days of Jahiliyyah and accepted Islam after the Treaty of Hudaybiyyah in approximately 7 A.H.

Among the many bounties enjoyed by the Muslim Ummah is the great day of Jumuah. Hafiz Ibn Katheer (Rahimahullah) said, "It was named Jumu'ah because it is derived from the word Al-Jam' in Arabic which means to gather, as Muslims gather weekly in large numbers on this day. The day of Jumuah should not be viewed as “another working day”, but rather as a day of great virtue and blessing.

Every true Muslim is linked to the great creed and way of our forefather Ibraheem AS. The great bounty of Imaan and faith makes us proud bearers of the universal way of Ibraheem and everything he stood for.

"So abstain from the pollution of the idols and abstain from false vain words." (Ch. 22, V. 30) Some may argue for the permissibility of “light music” in Islam. However, this position is seriously questionable.

Quite often we tend to overlook the great importance and virtue of consuming halaal. The truth of the matter is, just one morsel of haram, that is carelessly eaten or drunk, can have devastating consequences.

Once Saad bin Abi Waqqas (R) requested Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasalam) to ask Allah to accept all his duas --- i.e. make him a Mustajãbud Dawaat, --- meaning a person whose duas are accepted.
Nabi replied:  “O Saad! Be cautious in consuming only halaal and wholesome and Allah Ta’ala will make you a Mustajãbud Dawaat.”
