In Ramadan Muslims wake up before fajr and eat sehri (Pre-dawn meal) and after this pre dawm meal muslims offer fajr prayer and start their day. Then when they hear azam for magrib prayer they break their fasts, mostly with dates, then they ask for Allah’s Sustenance

 “Performing two ‘Umrahs expiates the sins committed in the interval between them. [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Islam Is a Complete Code of Life (Part 2)

 

madina 26

Make Life Easier For Others:

One of the chief problems of the current world is that people are striving to make their life comfortable on the cost of making it hard for the others. This approach is completely wrong and Islam gives the law of making the life of others easy to attain success. In Holy Quran, ALLAH Almighty says:

Ayat 1

Hence, a person must try to do well to others and make their life easier, as the return of it comes from ALLAH Almighty. Regarding the reward of good deeds, ALLAH Almighty says in the Holy Quran verse 10:26:

Ayat 2
Therefore, when doing well with others a Muslim should keep in mind that the reward of it comes from ALLAH Almighty and that reward is the only achievement that a person must desire.

Consult With Others:

The other significant Islamic law that can assist in achieving success in life is discussion with others. It is one of the most significant aspects of decision making which people ignore mainly because of their arrogance and the feeling that they know all. When a person consults with others concerning any matter, chances are that a person gets to pay attention or see some new viewpoint which originally would not have been clear to the person, therefore reaching a better decision guaranteeing achievement.

Ayat 3
Thus, regardless of if you have all the information that is required to reach a conclusion, the wise trick that guarantees achievement is consulting with others

Differentiate Right From Wrong:

This world is complete of all kinds of temptations, these temptations if not correctly dealt with result in a person going down the pathway of lack of knowledge without even realizing it. Thus, in order to do so a Muslim needs to differentiate between wrong and right and stand for the right and prohibit the wrong in order to attain success in the right sense.

Ayat 4

We have set a trend to ensure a timetable that you not abandon in dark place associated as a consequence of any unexpected delays. We are able to ensure your comfort during your trip.

Islam Is a Complete Code of Life (Part 1)

Islam Is a Complete Code of Life (Part 1)

madina 24

Islam is the complete code of life and it gives full details and mentions about each and every phase of life. Thus, by following the instructions of Islam and Holy Quran one can live the worldly life in the most excellent manner? Though, there are others who believe that following the principles of religion Islam alienates them and takes them away from this earth and hinders in their way of attaining success in this life. Such an idea about Islam is completely wrong and it has nothing to do with genuine message of Islam.

Islam encourages its followers to live this worldly life in the most excellent manner by following the rules and instructions of Islam.

Besides the rewards and pleasures of the world hereafter, the other main role that religion performs is of teaching ethical principles to a person. Furthermore, these moral principles are not only to be study or understood, rather they are need to be put to practice in this world so that the followers of the religion Islam represent their religion on the greatest manner and on the base of the life they live, they get a suitable reward in the world hereafter.

* Believe In ALLAH Almighty:

The first and chief significant thing that can assist a believer live the life in an Islamic manner and achieving success through it believes in ALLAH Almighty. When the belief of a Muslim increases in ALLAH Almighty and he or she realizes the reality that ALLAH Almighty is the sole provider, He is the Supreme and each and everything comes from Him, then the faith of the believer becomes more strong and out of this faith whatever activity he or she do it comes with conviction, and when something is done with pure intention, the chances of success boost naturally. ALLAH Almighty says in Holy Quran verse 2:165,

Verse 2:165 of Holy Quran,

“And [yet], among the people are those who take other than ALLAH as equals [to Him]. They love them as they [should] love ALLAH. But those who believe are stronger in love for ALLAH. And if only they who have wronged would consider [that] when they see the punishment, [they will be certain] that all power belongs to ALLAH and that ALLAH is severe in punishment”.

Thus, in life the increased and greater faith of a Muslim in ALLAH Almighty is a symbol of his or her differentiation from the rest of the religions and their Believers, and this faith is what will bring success to a Muslim.

Strive For Better:

Another Islamic theory basing the life upon which guarantees achievement in this world as well as in the world hereafter is the striving for honesty. Being a Muslim it is the main responsibility to be good and strive for spreading goodness.

Verse 29:69 of Holy Quran,

“And those who strive for us – We will surely guide them to our ways. And indeed, ALLAH is with the doers of good”.

Masjid is a Place to Worship Allah Almighty

Worship in Masjid

A Masjid is the building in which Muslims worship ALLAH Almighty.  Throughout Islamic history, the Masjid was the center of the society and towns formed around this essential building. At the present time, especially in Muslim countries Masjids are found on almost every street corner, making it an easy matter for Muslims to attend the five every day prayers.  In the West Masjid are integral parts of Islamic centers that also contain teaching and society facilities.

Masjids are constructing in all shapes and sizes; they differ from region to region based on the Muslim population in a certain area. Muslims in the past and even nowadays have made use of local artisans and architects to make beautiful, magnificent Masjids.

Some Features of Masjids

There are though, certain features that are common to all Masjids.  Every Masjid has a mehrab, a place in the wall that indicates the direction of Makkah; the direction or Qibla towards which Muslims pray.  Most Masjids have a minbar (or pulpit) from which an Islamic scholar is capable to deliver a sermon or speech.

Masjids have developed significantly over the past 1400 years.  Lots of have courtyards containing decorative fountains and pools, which initially supplied water for ablution before Namaz. At the present time though, more private bathroom and toilet facilities are provided.  Originally plain structures with earthen floors, now, Masjid floors are generally covered with luxurious carpet.  They are more often than not decorated with straight lines of geometric designs that make sure Muslims stand in straight rows in order to perform their five daily prayers.

Other general features include, minarets, tall towers used to call the congregation to Namaz.  Minarets are highly visible and are also closely identified with Masjids.  Normally there is a huge rectangular or square Namaz area. It sometime takes the form of a flat roof supported by columns or a system of horizontal beams supported by architraves.  In other general Masjid designs, the roof consists of a single large dome. There are usually separate Namaz areas, with separate entrances for both women and men.

There are never any images of life or statues in Masjids, in Islam it is prohibited that such things are kept or displayed inn Masjids. At times, the interior walls of the Masjids are decorated with verses from the Holy Quran in Arabic calligraphy, or with difficult geometric designs.  The patterns are made from a range of materials including mosaics, stucco, ceramics, stone, and wood.  When a person enters a Masjid he or she would have left the hustle and bustle of the material world and retreated into a tranquil shelter or sanctuary.  Masjids are houses of worship. Men are expected to pray all five every day obligatory prayers in a Masjid, in congregation. Although women are welcome to pray in the Masjid it is more admirable for them to pray in their homes.
