  2. Adapted from "The Night Prayers: Qiyam & Tarawih from works by Muhammad Nasir ud- Deen al-Albani (and other scholars)" Compiled by Muhammad al-Jibali Laylat ul-Qadr is the most blessed night. A person who misses it has indeed missed a great amount of good. If a believing person is zealous to obey his Lord and increase the good deeds in his record, he should strive to encounter this night and to pass it in worship and obedience. If this is facilitated for him, all of his previous sins will be forgiven. Praying Qiyaam It is recommended to make a long Qiyaam prayer during the nights on which Laylat ul-Qadr could fall. This is indicated in many hadeeths, such as the following: Abu Tharr (radhiallahu `anhu) relates: "We fasted with Allah's Messenger (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam) in Ramadaan. He did not lead us (in qiyaam) at all until there were seven (nights of Ramadaan) left. Then he stood with us (that night - in prayer) until one third of the night had passed. He did not pray with us on the sixth. On the fifth night, he prayed with us until half of the night had passed. So we said, 'Allah's Messenger! Wouldn't you pray with us the whole night?' He replied: 'Whoever stands in prayer with the imaam until he (the imaam) concludes the prayer, it is recorded for him that he prayed the whole night.'…" [Recorded by Ibn Abi Shaybah, Abu Dawud, at-Tirmithi (who authenticated it), an-Nasa'i, Ibn Majah, at-Tahawi (in Sharhu Ma`an il-Athar, Ibn Nasr, al-Faryabi, and al-Bayhaqi. Their isnad is authentic.] [Point of benefit: Abu Dawud mentioned: "I heard Ahmad being asked, 'Do you like for a man to pray with the people or by himself during Ramadan?' He replied, 'Pray with the people' I also heard him say, 'I would prefer for one to pray (qiyaam) with the imaam and to pray witr with him as well, for the Prophet (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam) said: "When a man prays with the imaam until he concludes, it is recorded that he prayed the rest of that night." [Masaa'il]] Abu Hurayrah (radhiallahu `anhu) narrated that the Messenger (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam) said: "Whoever stands (in qiyaam) in Laylat ul-Qadr [and it is facilitated for him] out of faith and expectation (of Allah's reward), will have all of his previous sins forgiven." [Al-Bukhari and Muslim; the addition "and it is facilitated for him" is recorded by Ahmad from the report of `Ubaadah Bin as-Samit; it means that he is permitted to be among the sincere worshippers during that blessed night.] Making Supplications It is also recommended to make extensive supplication on this night. `A'ishah (radhiallahu `anha) reported that she asked Allah's Messenger (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam), "O Messenger of Allah! If I knew which night is Laylat ul-Qadr, what should I say during it?" And he instructed her to say: "Allahumma innaka `afuwwun tuh.ibbul `afwa fa`fu `annee - O Allah! You are forgiving, and you love forgiveness. So forgive me." [Recorded by Ahmad, Ibn Majah, and at-Tirmithi. Verified to be authentic by Al-Albani] Abandoning Worldly Pleasures for the Sake of Worship It is further recommended to spend more time in worship during the nights on which Laylat ul-Qadr is likely to be. This calls for abandoning many worldly pleasures in order to secure the time and thoughts solely for worshipping Allah. `A'ishah (radhiallahu `anha) reported: "When the (last) ten started, the Prophet (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam) would tighten his izaar (i.e. he stayed away from his wives in order to have more time for worship), spend the whole night awake (in prayer), and wake up his family." [Al-Bukhari and Muslim] And she said: "Allah's Messenger (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam) used to exert more (in worship) on the last ten than on other nights." [Muslim]
  3. As Salam Alykom While surfing a book store, I found this booklet which is a part of a library dedicated for the new Muslim. It contains useful and yet brief information in addition to a number of fatwas (legal opinions). is part 6 of the new Muslim library. Actually I was very happy to find such a library. I wish that Allah supports me enough to be able to copy all its part so as to add it to islamww.com to serve our new Muslim brothers and sisters. However, what makes me sad is that the booklet was only loaded to our site at a late time. I really wished that I have found it before or at the beginning of Ramadan. But Alhamdulelah and Qadar Allah ma sha`a fa`l (what Allah decreed He Did). May be we can still make use of it during the remianing part of the month and other coming Ramadans Insh a Allah In order to copy the booklet I used a scanner, which is supposedly a perfect method. . Insh a Allah I am going to upload another booklet which is manual of Zakat. All what I need is dua in my absence for Allah to Help me and Support me to complete this work. Also that Allah provides me with sincerity and reward to see the fruit of this effort as well as the efforts of my brothers and sisters in Allah members of islammessage forums You may upload the booklet by following the link: en_Essentials_of_Ramadan.pdf
  4. Hello, Salamu Alaikum, Here is a describe for the five daily prayers, according to the vision of Islamic jurisprudence. First, we must understand the difference between the rule in normal cases, and emergency cases. When we talk about prayer. there is a rule for normal situations, and it changes when there are emergencies such as travel, war, disease and fear. In normal cases. (Rak'at) for each prayer is as follows: Fajr : Two Rakats Zuhr : Four Rakats Asr : Four Rakats Maghrib : three Rakats Isha : Four Rakats this is as the Obligatory prayer (Farz). and there is a Voluntary prayer after or before that, You Can Do. as the following details. Fajr (فجر) Prescribed time period "waqt" (Dawn to sunrise, should be read at least 10–15 minutes before sunrise) Voluntary before fard (2 Rakats) Obligatory (2 Rakats) Voluntary after fard (-) Zuhr (ظهر) Prescribed time period "waqt" (After true noon until Asr) Voluntary before fard (4 Rakats) Obligatory (4 Rakats) Voluntary after fard (2 Rakats) Asr (عصر) Prescribed time period "waqt" (Afternoon) Voluntary before fard (-) Obligatory (4 Rakats) Voluntary after fard (-) Maghrib (مغرب) Prescribed time period "waqt" (After sunset until dusk) Voluntary before fard (-) Obligatory (3 Rakats) Voluntary after fard (2 Rakats ) Isha (عشاء) Prescribed time period "waqt" (Dusk until dawn) Voluntary before fard (-) Obligatory (4 Rakats) Voluntary after fard (2 Rakats )

  7. 200 FAQ on Islamic Beliefs



    One of the aims of Dar Al-Manarah is to explain Islam and its message to the peoples of the world; as Islam is the final message of Allah to mankind. This message was brought over by all the Prophets and Messengers. It is a belief and a special way of life to be emulated by the individual and the whole community. Since the elements of Islam and its doctrines, concerning belief, ethics and conduct may not be fully known; Dar Al-Manarah thought that translating and publishing this book to acquaint with the bases of Islamic Monotheism.

  9. A Program of Studies for New Muslims

    Version 2


    Introduction In 1974, the Planning Committee of the Muslim Students' Association of the U. S. and Canada sparked the idea of designing a comprehensive curriculum for American Muslims who have recently embraced Islam. Such curriculum is greatly needed by a large population of Muslims in North America to help them understand Islam as a complete way of life, practice it and live up to its ideals. To satisfy this need, the task of producing the curriculum and its supportive material was entrusted to the Department of Education, Publication and Information. Through the efforts of that Department and the Islamic Teaching Center, Dr. Mohammad Moinuddin Siddiqui undertook to work out" A Program of Studies for New Muslims." His deep commitment to Islam and conviction of the significance of education as a crucial vehicle for social change prompted him to devote his time and finish the first stage of this tremendous and challenging work. The second stage is the writing of text books which are specifically tailored to the sequential level series of this program of studies.

  19. Deepwater Whip Coral, Japan

    Photograph by Brian Skerry, National Geographic What looks like a tangle of gnarled cables is in fact a forest of deepwater whip coral in Suruga Bay. Each strand is studded with feeding polyps that reach tiny tentacles into the currents to grab floating food. See more pictures from the November 2010 feature story "3 Degrees of Japan’s Seas." What Made This a Photo of the Day I love how the diver is hovering in the deep green expanse, at the edge of this wild tangle of coral, like the explorer of an alien territory as forbidding as it is beautiful. —Alexa Keefe, Photo of the Day editor
  20. Half Dome, Yosemite National Park

    Photograph by Jimmy Chin, National Geographic Alex Honnold takes on the third zigzag of Half Dome without a rope. He has just one more difficult section, or pitch, in the last three before reaching the summit. See more pictures from the May 2011 feature story "Daring. Defiant. Free." What Made This a Photo of the Day Last year's National Geographic story about super climbers in Yosemite featured several heart-pounding shots, and this one is no exception. The scale of the climber against the vertical rock face and the expansive mountain vista behind him make this one work for me. —Alexa Keefe, Photo of the Day editor
