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.”

The last class entitled The Last Breath offered by Al Maghrib Institute was a very great experience for me. First, the fact that I was surrounded by very dedicated students of knowledge and a very knowledgeable scholar mashAllah made me feel at home.  I felt like the classroom was meant to be my real home and the people around me were my real brothers and sisters. I did not want the seminar to end because of the comfort, inner peace and tranquility I felt in that atmosphere. I had never in my …

When I wrote my first article in Tayybah Times after I took the ‘Fiqh of Salah’ class then I thought  If I would get another chance then I would write another article and  here I am writing my second article.
The important lessons I have learned from the ‘Fiqh of death’ class are the following:
When people die they go through many difficulties. Sometimes we make comment that if a person suffers a lot before die then because that person did such and such bad things and that’s why he was suffering. …

The Last Breath: The Fiqh of Death & Inheritance was a phenomenal seminar –a must take for every Muslim but especially students of knowledge.  It was said by our beloved Rasool (saw) that “The first of branch of knowledge which will be taken away from my Ummah will be Illmul Faraidh (the knowledge pertaining to inheritance).”  As you can see currently the extinction of this knowledge, many of us are severely unaware of the importance and benefits of the science of inheritance nor are we are aware of the consequences …

For The Last Breath seminar, the one most important thing that blew my mind appeared almost right at the beginning. It was the Checklist on Death. At first glance, the questions seemed easy enough to answer. However, as Shaykh Waleed went over the questions with us, explaining them and adding the necessary understanding of its importance, I was amazed at how heavy each question began to weigh in my mind. This questionnaire forced me to seriously analyze my relationship and experience with this world and the kind of experience I …

In my life I have attended many Islamic gatherings to get knowledge, but I can’t compare any of the gatherings with AlMaghrib seminars. The Last Breath: Fiqh of Worship III (Death & Inheritance) was my second seminar with AlMaghrib. This is one of the seminars that helped me to take my religion more seriously than ever before. Now I know more about death and my responsibilities in the society and in my family as an individual.  One of the memorable parts in this seminar was the questionnaire form that contains many …

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 …

The Last Breath was an intense class. It gave me insight on what the concept of death is. Sitting there, in my seat, chills ran through my body. I imagined myself six feet under, myself and my deeds. It made me realize that death will reach us all one day.  The side stories that were shared by the instructor were to be learned from and held precious.
Just being there with a bunch of other people that had the same view that you have was enough to make me remain steadfast, …
