    Pearls of Wisdom: No.44 “Food for the Soul” SUBJECT:  GOOD COMPANIONSHIP   Allah, The Most Exalted, says: “O you who Believe! Fear (the punishment of) Allah (by doing good and abstaining from sin) and stay (associate) with the Truthful” (Qur’an-SurahTawbah:119) The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) is reported to have said: “The example of a good companion and a bad companion is like that of the seller of musk, and the one who blows the blacksmith’s bellows. So as for the seller of musk then either he will grant you some, or you buy some from him, or at least you enjoy a pleasant smell from him. As for the one who blows the blacksmith’s bellows then either he will burn your clothes or you will get an offensive smell from him.” (Hadith Bukhari and Muslim) Note: Imaan (Faith) is our greatest wealth...

  • Simple Steps to a Healthier, Happier You!
    By Umm Ayman Complete health should be a balanced and holistic endeavour. Below are just a few concise steps toward achieving full physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, social and even financial well-being and contentment, Inshaa-Allah. 1. ALWAYS SAY BISMILLAH (I BEGIN IN THE NAME OF ALLAH) The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) taught us: ‘Every deed that does not begin with BISMILLAH - In the name of Allah,  is incomplete, (devoid of blessings)’. Hence, with yaqeen (conviction), whatever you decide to do or consume, will be blessed, and no harm will come to you if it is not Allah’s decree. Yet to aid in this conviction you must most certainly make use of your‘aql (intelligence) and use what has been prescribed. 2. MAKE GOOD INFORMED CHOICES. That’s right. Ask the well-informed and experienced, read a book,...

  • Udhiya (Qurbani)
    Udhiya (Qurbani) By E-Islam Team What is Udhiya? ‘Udhiya’ is an Arabic word meaning "blood sacrifice", and ‘Qurbani’ is an Urdu and Persian word derived from the Arabic word "Qurban" which literally means an act performed to seek Allah Ta’ala’s pleasure. It is technically used for the sacrifice of an animal slaughtered for the sake of Allah Ta’ala. The sacrifice of an animal has always been a recognised form of worship in many religions, but in the ‘Shariah’ (Islamic sacred law) of The Last and Final Messenger of Allah Ta’ala (Peace be upon him), the sacrifice of an animal has been recognised as a form of ibadah (worship) during the three days of the month Zul Hijjah, namely the 10th, 11th, and 12th . This is to commemorate the unparalleled sacrifice offered by the Prophet Sayyidna Ibrahim, Alayhi...

  • Unethical media practices by Neth FM
      COLOMBO, MEDIA AND COMMUNICATIONS, PEACE AND CONFLICT, POLITICS AND GOVERNANCE, RELIGION AND FAITH Unethical media practices by Neth FM Photo courtesy The Star On June 14th, 2016 the ‘Balumgala’ news programme on Neth FM sought to discuss the construction of a mosque at Sri Maha Vihara Road, Kalubowila, Dehiwela. We reproduce below a letter written by a civil society body with regard to what they call ‘unethical media practices’ by Neth FM. Of particular concern is the failure on the part of the presenters to interview any Muslim member of the congregation or a trustee of the mosque. The Balumgala of June 14th, 2016 is reflective of a general problem of a failure on the part of the Sinhala language print and electronic media to give fair coverage to Muslim related news stories and features.   July 10th, 2016 The Managing...

  • Keeping that Spark Alive
    By: Sister S Bemath We enrolled 30 days in a course called Ramadhaan to reach “Taqwah”(Fear of Allah Ta’ala Ta’ala). It was a time of renewal and re-establishment of our commitment to our Beloved ALLAH TA’ALA and HIS beautiful Deen-ul-Islaam. Al-Hamdulillah! Many have graduated with flying colours – embracing them with positive Deeni (Islamic)changes. Now is a crucial time to put it into practice! We fasted, gave charity, read the Qur'aan Kareem and performed the night especially the last ten, standing in prayer before ALLAH TA’ALA. We avoided gossip, slander and every evil that would invalidate our fasting. But now that Ramadhaan has bid us farewell, many of us, regrettably, will put the Qur'aan Kareem back on the shelves, will suspend fasting until next year and will abandon the night prayer. This is not the way it should...

  • Fasting in Shawwal
    Keeping the six fasts of Shawwal after keeping the fasts of Ramadaan equals to 360 days of fasting Sayyiduna Abu Ayyub Ansaari Radhiyallahu Anhu mentions that Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said: “Whoever observed the fasts of Ramadhan, then follows them with the fasts of six days in the Month of Shawwal, he will be rewarded as if he fasted for the entire year.”(Muslim) Note: The reward of each good deed is multiplied at least ten times. Therefore, thirty days of fast in Ramadaan equals three hundred days and the six fast of Shawwal equal sixty days. Thus, totalling to three hundred and sixty days, which is the total amount of days in a lunar year. --
