Greatness of ALLAH !

He governs the affairs of the various kingdoms and He commands and forbids, creates, sustains, gives death, gives life, gives power, strips power (to and from whom He wills) and alternates the night and day. He gives varying fortunes to people and alternates governments (and states), destroying some and bringing some into existence. His Command and Power are dominant in the heavens and their zones, the earth and all that which is on and in it, in the seas and in the air. His Knowledge has encompassed everything and He counted everything. He hears all types of voices and they do not confuse Him. Rather, He hears each voice in its distinct language and need, and no voice will make Him busy from fulfilling the need of another, and no need will ever escape His Perfect Knowledge (and His Power to deliver). He does not become bored because of the many needs of those who need. His Sight encompasses all that which there is. He sees the movement of a black ant on a barren rock during a dark night. To Him, the Unseen is uncovered end the secret is secret no more, "Whosoever is in the heavens and on Earth begs of Him (its needs from Him). Every day He has a matter to bring Forth (such as giving honor to some, disgrace to some, life to (some, death to some, etc.)."  He forgives an evil deed, makes depression vanish and brings reprieve from disasters, relief for whoever needs it, wealth for the poor, guidance for the misguided, light for the lost, help for he who is desperate, fullness for the hungry, cover for the barely clothed, cure for the ill and ease for he who suffers. He accepts he who repents, gives reward for he who does good, gives aid for he who was dealt with injustice, destroys an arrogant person, covers mistakes, gives safety after fear end elevates some people and humiliates others. If those who inhabit His heavens and His earth and all those whom He created, whether mankind or the Jinns, had hearts similar to the most pious heart, His Kingdom will not increase. If all His creation, whether mankind or the Jinns, had hearts similar to the heart of the most wicked heart, this will not decrease from His Kingdom. Also, if all those who inhabit His heavens and His earth, all mankind and all the Jinns, the dead and the living, stand up on one strip of land and each asks Him for his need, and He then fullfils their needs, this will not decrease from what He has a bit. He is the First, nothing is before Him, the Last, nothing is after Him, the Most High, nothing is above Him, and the Most Near, nothing is nearer than Him. He, Exalted and Ever High as He is, is the Best Whom one can and should remember, the only One Who deserves to be worshiped and thanked, the Kindest of all those who own and the Most generous of all those who are asked to give. He is the King Who has no partner, the One Who has no competitor, the Samad (Self-Sufficient) Who has no offspring, and the Ever High, none like unto Him. Everything perishes save His Face and every kingship is bound to perish except His. He will only be obeyed by His Leave, and His Knowledge uncovers all disobedience to Him. When He is obeyed, He thanks for it, and when He is disobeyed, He grants forgiveness (for those who truly repent to Him). Every punishment from Him is just and every bounty is a grace. He is the Closest Witness and the Nearest One with His Perfect Care. He controls the forelocks of everything and has the full records of all deeds end the books of all ages. The hearts are unmasked to Him and the secret is unveiled. His giving and punishing is merely a Command, "Verily, His Command, when He intends a thing, is only that He says to it, ‘Be, and it is!’


Any one who submits his/her will to ALLAH is called as Muslim. And also Believe in ALLAH and his Prophets, Messengers, Books, Angels and also The day of Judgment and also and also obey the orders of ALLAH.

A Muslim who follows the religion with sincerity, and has strong faith in ALLAH and Aakhirah and obeys the orders of ALLAH and rules of Prophet Mohammad (SAW) is called MOMIN.  A true Muslim is a MOMIN.

A Muslim (Arabic: مسلم‎), pronounced /ˈmʊslɪm/, is an adherent of the religion of Islam. The feminine form is Muslimah (Arabic: مسلمة‎). Literally, the word means "one who submits (to God)". Muslim is the participle of the same verb of which Islam is the infinitive. Muslims believe that there is only one God, translated in Arabic as Allah. Muslims believe that Islam existed long before Muhammad and that the religion had evolved with time from the time of Adam until the time of Muhammad and was completed with the revelation of verse 3 of Surah al-Maeda:

This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed My favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion.

The Qur'an describes many Biblical prophets and messengers as Muslim: Adam, Noah (Arabic: Nuh), Moses and Jesus and his apostles. The Qur'an states that these men were Muslims because they submitted to God, preached his message and upheld his values. Thus, in Surah 3:52 of the Qur'an, Jesus’ disciples tell Jesus, "We believe in God; and you be our witness that we submit and obey (wa ashahadu bil-muslimūna)."

Muslims consider making ritual prayer five times a day a religious duty (fard) (see the section on Ismāˤīlīs below for exceptions); these five prayers are known as fajr, dhuhr, ˤasr, maghrib and ˤishā'. There is also a special Friday prayer called jumuˤah.


Most Muslims accept as a Muslim anyone who has publicly pronounced the Shahadah (declaration of faith) which states,

Ash-hadu an laa ilaha illa-lah Wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadar rasulullah

"I bear witness there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah and I bear witness, Muhammad is His final messenger".

What is Islam ? 

Islam is not a new religion, but the same truth that God revealed through all His prophets to every people. For a fifth of the world's population, Islam is both a religion and a complete way of life. Muslims follow a religion of peace, mercy, and forgiveness, and the majority have nothing to do with the extremely grave events which have come to be associated with their faith.
  • Who are the Muslims? 
  • One billion people from a vast range of races, nationalities and cultures across the globe - from the southern Philippines to Nigeria - are united by their common Islamic faith. About 18% live in the Arab world; the world's largest Muslim community is in Indonesia; substantial parts of Asia and most of Africa are Muslim, while significant minorities are to be found in the Soviet Union, China, North and South America, and Europe.

As soon as he began to recite the words he heard from Gabriel, and to preach the truth which God had revealed to him, he and his small group of followers suffered bitter persecution, which grew so fierce that in the year 622 God gave them the command to emigrate. This event, the Hijra, 'migration', in which they left Makkah for the city of Madinah some 260 miles to the north, marks the beginning of the Muslim calendar.

After several years, the Prophet and his followers were able to return to Makkah, where they forgave their enemies and established Islam definitively. Before the Prophet died at the age of 63, the greater part of Arabia was Muslim, and within a century of his death Islam had spread to Spain in the West and as far East as China.

How did the spread of Islam affect the world?Among the reasons for the rapid and peaceful spread of Islam was the simplicity of its doctrine - Islam calls for faith in only One God worthy of worship. It also repeatedly instructs man to use his powers of intelligence and observation.

Within a few years, great civilizations and universities were flourishing, for according to the Prophet, 'seeking knowledge is an obligation for every Muslim man and woman'. The synthesis of Eastern and Western ideas and of new thought with old, brought about great advances in medicine, mathematics, physics, astronomy, geography, architecture, art, literature, and history. Many crucial systems such as algebra, the Arabic numerals, and also the concept of the zero (vital to the advancement of mathematics), were transmitted to medieval Europe from Islam. Sophisticated instruments which were to make possible the European voyages of discovery were developed, including the astrolabe, the quadrant and good navigational maps.

         What is the Quran?

The Quran is a record of the exact words revealed by God through the Angel Gabriel to the Prophet Muhammad. It was memorized by Muhammad and then dictated to his Companions, and written down by scribes, who cross-checked it during his lifetime. Not one word of its 114 chapters, Surahs, has been changed over the centuries, so that the Quran is in every detail the unique and miraculous text which was revealed to Muhammad fourteen centuries ago.
             Islam in the United States

 It is almost impossible to generalize about American Muslims: converts, immigrants, factory workers, doctors; all are making their own contribution to America's future. This complex community is unified by a common faith, underpinned by a countrywide network of a thousand mosques.

Muslims were early arrivals in North America. By the eighteenth century there were many thousands of them, working as slaves on plantations. These early communities, cut off from their heritage and families, inevitably lost their Islamic identity as time went by. Today many Afro-American Muslims play an important role in the Islamic community.

The nineteenth century, however, saw the beginnings of an influx of Arab Muslims, most of whom settled in the major industrial centers where they worshipped in hired rooms. The early twentieth century witnessed the arrival of several hundred thousand Muslims from Eastern Europe: the first Albanian mosque was opened in Maine in 1915; others soon followed, and a group of Polish Muslims opened a mosque in Brooklyn in 1928.

In 1947 the Washington Islamic Center was founded during the term of President Truman, and several nationwide organizations were set up in the fifties. The same period saw the establishment of other communities whose lives were in many ways modeled after Islam. More recently, numerous members of these groups have entered the fold of Muslim orthodoxy. Today there are about five million Muslims in America.
O mankind! We created you from a single soul, male and female, and made you into nations and tribes, so that you may come to know one another. Truly, the most honored of you in God's sight is the greatest of you in piety. God is All-Knowing, All-Aware. (Quran, 49:13)


Anyone who keeps patience in life verily, he is graced by the Almighty ALLAH. The one who has patience he will achieve success in his life.
Keep patience in your life. Even if someone harms you, do not take revenge but keep patience. By the real virtue of patience you will eventually succeed over the person who has done harm to you. Whenever you are in an unfavourable circumstances or you are involved in any difficulty at that particular time keep absolute patience. By the good virtue of patience you will be able to overcome your difficulties very soon.The Almighty ALLAH helps His friends. Those who keep patience are the friends and the lovers of Almighty ALLAH and ALLAH loves most those who have patience in their hearts. The Almighty ALLAH helps them at the time of their difficulty Because of the patience in their hearts. Be associated with the TRUE Momins and learn from them to offer sincere thanks (SHUKRANAS) to the Almighty ALLAH. TRUE Momins keep patience at all times and during all circumtances in life. Whether there is favourable or whether there is a difficult time of life, both are the NIYAMATS -A GRACE OF ALLAH TO YOU. Do not talk to anybody about the hard times of your life. This is a sign of a MOMIN. Momins are able to act in this manner by their good virtue of PATIENCE. Those who will keep patience in life, they will be highly rewarded by the Almighty ALLAH. O Momins,it is likely that series of difficulties may surround you in your life but even at such critical times keep patience and be assured that favourable time will soon follow after the hardships. After the hard times follows the good times which gives great comforts. Anyone who has suffered and experienced hard times in this world, they will be entitled to achieve Paradise in AKUBAT. If anyone wishes to have a remedy of the frustrated and disturbed heart, he should be regularly saying his Prayers. During the prayers one should pray to Almighty ALLAH: O My Beloved Lord, I am offering to THEE my most humble and sincere thanks (SHUKRANAS) for all that THOU ART doing for me. I say SHUKRANAS for THY DIVINE GRACE and BLESSINGS. Say SHUKRANAS -thanks regularly to The Almighty ALLAH in all circumstances-whether it is favourable or Unfavourable time of Life. Continue to offer sincere thanks (SHUKRANAS) to ALLAH. Immense wealth and assets, sons and daughters in one's life, the more closer, the more it is experienced as burden on the heart and it is the wish and the absolute will of ALLAH to whom to give life and when to take away the life of a man in this world. Those who are suffering in this world they are not necessarily bad people. Such people may be of high dignity before the Almighty ALLAH. Those who are able to control themselves, they are the people in whose heart rememberance of ALLAH constantly continues. These people are far better than those who are wearing expensive dresses and adorn themselves with precious stones and ornaments and yet they do not have LOVE for ALLAH in their hearts. The Almighty ALLAH does not look at the dresses whether one wears silk dress or a dress made of jute.The Almighty ALLAH likes purity and sincerity of the heart.If you will control your SELF and your mind you will experience immense happiness. Avoid doing wrongs. Do not commit sins. Eat HALAL ROJI earned with honesty. By honesty your food and your clothings will be purified and when pure food and clothing are utilized in life, they impart a great satisfaction.By eating pure food (HALAL ROJI), the volume of good actions in your life will increase which will give you an added PEACE and SATISFACTION in your heart. Your ROJI -will surely come to you. Have boundless faith in ALLAH. Rest assured, that on each grain of food there is a mark of your name, which is meant for your ROJI. It is already destined for you and you are positively going to eat that food (ROJI) without fail. The millions that you are hoarding become a burden to you rather than blessing, if that wealth is not used for a good cause in the life. ALLAH gives ROJI (things required to servive eg: food) to all in this world.ALLAH gives ROJI without fail. So why should one be dishonest? Why should one look for the HARRAM- ROJI (DISHONEST EARNINGS)? Amir-ul Mominin Mowla Murtaza Ali (A.S.) says in His Holy Qalam Mubarak: O Momins, have boundless faith in ALLAH. ALLAH provides ROJI to all in this world and He will provide for you as well-ALLAH is your CREATOR. If you will keep an absolute faith in ALLAH your HOME will be full of 'BARAQATS'-with an abundance of fortunes and to such an extent that you will be in a position to entertain guests everyday at your home. You will be prosperous and you will gain so many other achievements in your life. Say thanks -SHUKRANAS -for what you have already received in your life from the Almighty ALLAH. Do not beg for anything from others. Maintain your prestige and self-respect. The Almighty ALLAH is the Master of the Universes. ALLAH is the Merciful and the Compassionate. He alone will provide you with ROJI and all your necessities. If you remain satisfied with what you have received from the Almighty ALLAH your name will be dignified and the Almighty ALLAH by His Divine Grace will respect you- and He will reward you.In this material world there is happiness and unhappiness as well.Why should anybody take unhappiness in life? Since you are already receiving what is destined for you then why are you demanding above your destiny? ALLAH gives you ROJI (food). ALLAH by His Divine Grace also gives you Life. You are, no doubt, the most fortunate being. You should therefore, from the depth of your heart thank and say SHUKRANAS DAY AND NIGHT to the Almighty ALLAH for what you have received from Him. If anybody pays you and also provides you food regularly, he expects you to labour for it. The Almighty ALLAH provides you ROJI regularly -He gives you Life and also protects you in your daily Life day and night and what does ALLAH expect from you? SHUKRANAS- THANKS -JUST THANKS from the depth of your heart. The Almighty ALLAH with His most DIVINE Grace showers His Blessings upon those who say SHUKRANAS -offer sincere thanks to HIM. Offer sincere SHUKRANAS(Thankings), day and night deep from your heart to ALLAH; but if you will fail to do this you might be deprived of the NIYAMATS -'GRACE OF ALLAH'. Why are you not satisfied with what ALLAH gives you? You ask for more and more daily. You want every thing- all the wealth of the world.You worry day and night and you do not enjoy your food. You do not dress well due to your unnecessary worries and your life eventually ends miresably. ALLAH has graced you with NIYAMATS - all the NIYAMATS -gifts -and bounties. Inspite of ALLAH's DIVINE GRACE upon you, if you will not offer SHUKRANAS to Him, your unthankfulness -undesirable attitude will take away all your BARAQATS from your life. While you have opportunities to say SHUKRANAS -Thanks to ALLAH -if you did not care to do so; eventually you will have nothing but regrets in your life, when all your NIYAMATS -BARAQATS fortunes will be taken away because of this unthankfulness which is an undesirable attitude of Life. In this life you will be graced by the Almighty ALLAH -and at the same time also you should perform IBADAT BANDAGI regularly. And if you will fail to fulfill your sacred duties then what Will happen? ALLAH-The Almighty who has showered His Grace upon you and gave you the most valuable and worthy LIFE -ALLAH will take away your life. As a result of this you will obviously be deprived of good fruits-good results of your life. Always bear in mind that after sorrows there will be happiness (KHUSHALI). There is a remedy for all difficulties and unfavourab1e circumstances. There is comfort and happiness after hardships. Explain this to your mind and to yourself. This material world is a Paradise for KAFFIRS. But for the Momins, this world is like a prison. However many comforts one may have in life, it is like a drop in the ocean when it is compared with the HAQIQATI -KHUSHIALI OF AKUBAT. At times one may have to face hardships in this world but, eventually Momins will positively be highly rewarded with immense happiness of Paradise in the next world. Momins will achieve Haqiqati Khushali ( ture happiness) and the HOLY NOORANI DIDAR ( to see ALLAH) in the Eternal Life. When you happen to see a religious and pious person in difficulties, take it for granted that his difficulties are due to the DIVINE GRACE OF ALLAH. But, when you find a hypocrite in adversities, assume that his difficulties are as a result of the wrath of ALLAH because of the misdeeds he has done in his life. Be assured that this was a DIVINE GRACE ­ "RAHEMAT" for AYUB NABI. FIRON opposed Hazarat MOSES therefore FIRON sunk into serious and grave difficulties. His major difficulties arose because FIRON was cursed by the Almighty ALLAH.If any person harms you -KEEP SILENCE. A person who acts in a wrong manner will eventually be ashamed of his bad actions. By your silence and patience you will not lose anything but wrong doers will be disgraced and ashamed badly.Keep this Holy Qalam Mubarak as a great treasure in your heart and remember it constantly. Avoid anger. Do not be angry on anybody. Extinguish the fire of anger in your heart and be afraid of the wrath of ALLAH. On one occassion a maid servant by her negligence dropped a bowl of hot porridge on the MUBARAK FACE of Hazarat Imam Hussein (A.S.). O Momins, do you know what Imam Hussein (A.S.) did? Hazarat Imam Hussein (A.S.) instantly controlled his anger and offered a most beautiful gift to his maid -the gift he offered her was FREEDOM -she was made AZAD - FREE from slavery.Under any circumstances do not be angry. Always keep calm, cool and patience. Have tolerance and you will have satisfaction in your heart. Offer SHUKRANAS- Thanks to Almighty ALLAH. Be assured Almighty ALLAH will remove all your difficulties in your life. Bear in mind that your body and mind will experience an immense peace and happiness if you offer SHUKRANAS. Offer thanks to your creator -the Almighty ALLAH. Say SHUKRANAS with each and every breath you take in your life. Once your good habit of saying SHUKRANAS to ALLAH is formed -as a result of this all your IBADAT BANDAGI, will be positively accepted by the DIVINE Grace of ALMIGHTY ALLAH.(AMEEN)
A beautiful scene ! A kid is looking forward to praise ALLAH.
