Our parents are our path to Jannah

By Dr Muein Shubib
“Our parents deserve our utmost love and respect. Neglecting or abusing our parents is a grave sin, and incurs Allah’s displeasure. Our parents cared for us when we were young; we must love and care for them when they are old. This will open the doors of Al Jannah for us…”

Muslim Ethics and interactions

By Dr Hossam Roushdi

“Sura Al Hujuraat eloquently describes the way we should have good relationships with one another. Believers do not have suspicions about one another, do not spy on one another, do not backbite or undermine one another. We should always think the best of each other, make excuses for one another and give the best interpretation when there is any doubt…”

Pray as if this is your Last Prayer

By Dr Husni Hammuda
“Our attitude to prayer is crucial. Careless, clumsy, hasty prayers done with our minds focussed elsewhere, are of no use and are indeed offensive to Allah.

We have no guarantee that we will be alive for the next prayer, so let us do each one as if it may be our last…”

The blessings of asking forgiveness

By Zaheer Yaqoob

“Allah says that even if you have sins that reach up to the sky, Allah is able to forgive that. We must never despair of Allah’s capacity to forgive. Just stop the sinful behaviour, resolve never to go there again, and sincerely turn to Allah in repentance…”

The Story of Adam A.S.

By Dr Muein Shubib
“Prophet Adam, alayhis salaam, was the archetypal human being. He was Allah’s Khalifa, Allah’s Vicegerent or Ambassador on earth. You and I are called upon to follow that noble path of being Allah’s ambassador. In our families, in our neighbourhoods, in our workplaces, sports and social gatherings, we must be the living example of the prophets like Adam A.S. We must be Allah aware at all times…”
