A shadow chase

Allah subhanawat’Ala beautifully reminds, “seek through that which Allah has given you, the home of the hereafter, (yet) do not forget your share of the hereafter.”

To Die or Not to Die? That is the Question

The class is called the Last Breath
It’s all about the fiqh of death
It explains about the journey of the soul
Will you have an EZ Pass or pay the toll
Death occurs when the soul leaves the body eternally
The soul faces its destiny with uncertainty
Be good and follow the divine
So when you die we will see a good sign
Washing the body is done in a certain way
In which one must not delay
Shrouding each gender
Has a different number
Women in 5 men in three
Musk is the smell of a shaheed’s blood
Who was just a …

Poem & Du’aa: Rethinking Death

Death-
And as I sit there learning how-
How to detect if a person is actually dead
How to comfort the dying person
How to wash their body
How to bury them
How to pray on them
How to comfort the grieving family
How to comfort myself
I rethink- death
How inevitable it is
How unreal but real it is
It didn’t hit me until I actually imagined holding someone from my family in my hand- dead
Until I actually pictured myself laying still, no pulse, motionless
And then I started breathing- heavily
There would be no turning back- no more second chances
Am I ready? …

Fiqh of L♥ve – A P☻em

By Anonymous
From the words of the Lord above, watching us,
Shaikh Waleed came to NY to teach us the Fiqh of Love,
He had some goals for us, to appreciate the work of the scholars,
To get results in our lives, become better spouses and followers.
The Prophet as a husband, the fact that he is our best example,
In every aspect of his life, he had extremely high credentials,
He married all his wives for elevated reasoning, not similar to the cats today,
Even in expressing love for our wives, we barely follow his way.
He told …

How to Transform Yourself Into ‘Mrs. Right’

As a sister raised in the western world, it is not uncommon to see how many of us are not married by a certain age, as it is required of most of us. In addition there are reverts whom after conversion are immediately counseled to marry, and regardless have trouble finding a spouse. The statistics of the amount of single Muslimah’s is steadily rising, surprisingly not only in the Western countries, but in the Arab countries as well. This is an issue which the Ummah I personally believe should address …

The D☻wer (M♥hr)

By Sister Areefa
“And give the women [upon marriage] their [bridal] gifts graciously. But if they give up willingly to you anything of it, then take it in satisfaction and ease.” (4:4) Allah (Subhana wa Ta’ala) orders man to give woman upon marriage, their gifts, or dower. The dower, or mah’r, is what is given to the bride by the groom for the purpose of marriage. It is a right to which every bride is entitled to and it is agreed between the two families or the groom and the guardian …

One Car, Two Drivers

Love.
Marriage.
Intimacy.
We Muslims know that we are unique in our perspectives when it comes to the topic of romance. Living in a world where western ideals are abundant and Muslims are already constituted as the minority, the superficial aspects of romance take precedence over the spiritual ones. This leaves Islam in its own category as Muslims are told to focus on the latter and not so much the former. Reserving the celebration of my love for my significant other for only one 12-hour day out of 365 days in the …
