The wisdom of overlooking the faults of others

By Dr Husni Hammuda

“Finding fault with others deceives us into considering ourselves superior. It’s a trick of Shaytaan to make excuses for our own bad behaviour. We should be generous and forbearing towards others, and strict with ourselves….”

Become a better husband, like Prophet Muhammad sws!

By Dr Husni Hammuda

“A growing number of marriages are failing because of wrong expectations and cultural habits that do not follow the Prophetic Sunnah. Our Prophet Muhammad sws was an exemplary husband.  He was the busiest man in the world: He led a nation as their political and spiritual leader, yet he helped with the humdrum chores at home. He helped with the housework; he mended his own clothes and sandals. More marriages will succeed if lazy husbands changed their attitude and  treated their wives with loving care and respect…”

Tafseer of Sura Al-Asr

By Dr Husni Hammuda

Sura Al Asr is one of the shortest chapters in the Holy Quran, yet it encapsulates everything that a true Believer should strive to be.

Salaah is the main practical pillar of Islam

Dr Husni Hammuda explains the crucial importance of doing our prayers properly, at the right time and in the right frame of mind, and the right disposition of the heart. Salaah is the first thing that Allah will question us about on the Day of Judgement. Let us do it properly, the way Allah will be pleased with!

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. When we pray, we must imagine we are addressing the King of the Universe, who deserves our undivided attention and our utmost respect. 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…”

Don’t be A Muflis (Bankrupt) on judgment day

By Dr Husni Hammuda
“According to an authentic Hadith, the most bankrupt person on the Day of Judgment will be someone who, despite observing the 5 pillars of Islam, will have harmed others with slander, backbiting and unpaid debts. Even when all the good deeds are used to compensate, the bad deeds of the victims will be added. Let us not undermine the value of our own good deeds by harming others…”
