How the tables turn…

By Sohaib Saeed

Cambridge Muslim College

Things are always changing under God’s master plan. How do we deal with it? How do we give advice to others? How can we be sure that our advice is valid, according to the Quran and Sunnah? Be careful! Either you know, or you don’t, and you’re reaching beyond your limits… You could be either a Wali or a Wally!…

Isra’ wal Mi’raj

What was the nature of this journey? Did it take place when the Prophet was asleep or when he was awake? Did he actually undertake a journey in the physical sense or did he have a spiritual vision while remaining in his own place? These questions, in our view, have been resolved by the text of the Quran itself. The opening statement: “Holy is He Who carried His servant by night from the Holy Mosque to the farther Mosque… “

Isra and Mi’raj: The Mystical Night Journey and Ascension through the heavens

By Arshad Gamiet
“Before the Mi’raj occurred, Muslims had no idea as to how and when they should pray. Now we not only know how and when, but also the ‘why’ part. Why do we pray? Why 5 times a day? Why not just once? … When we Muslims pray, we enjoy a very special relationship with Allah. While other faiths have intermediaries, Muslims have no priest, no Rabbi, no Archbishop or even a Pope to stand between us and Allah. We worship Allah directly and Allah answers us directly. Allah says “I listen to the prayer of everyone who calls me. Let them also then, listen to My call, so that they may walk on the straight way.”

The Chosen People

By Ustadh Abdul Basith Awan

Some Muslims suffer from an inferiority complex, so they uncritically adopt the western liberal culture. Actually, Islam is far superior, but they don’t realise it. We must fully appreciate our Islamic values so that we can become personal examples those who are spiritually lost

Gaza: Courage and Bravery

By Basharat Ali

“The Palestinians are showing the world their extraordinary courage and bravery. Most Muslim rulers are doing too little to help them. But what about you and me? What excuse do we have? We pray and we share our WhatsApp messages and videos. But is that all we can do? On the day of Judgement, those messages and videos may well become a witness against us…”
