Tafseer Al-QuranProphets StoriesQ&AMagazineAbout

"the main reason is that i think there is no God, its all man made, just like Zeus and Ra’…..cant be proven…and all the holy books cant be held as evidence, because they are not a credible source." 

Qur’an is unquestionable proof. Period. Why? The Quran is completely different from all the other books in the world. The Quran, which Prophet Mohamed (SAWS) brought, has challenged all mankind with all their literary geniuses and scientists, from the first day of its revelation to the Last Day, to produce a like of it or even a single chapter of it. The Qur’an is beyond compare from the viewpoint of its styles and eloquence. Prophet Muhammad was unlettered and no one had heard him say even a couple of poetry. However, the Quran also challenged the known experts in poetry and oratory and forced them to surrender. 

The Quran describes man with all his physical and spiritual aspects and contains principles to solve all the problems that may appear at any time and in any place concerning all the social, economic, political and administrative fields of life. Furthermore, it satisfies both the mind and spirit at the same time and guarantees happiness in both worlds. The Quran unveils the mystery of man, creation and the universe. 

If you have the Qur’an, open these ayat and cross reference with the things I just said: 2:23, 10:38, 11:13, 17:88, 52:34.

Qur’an Verses:

2:23 And if ye are in doubt concerning that which We reveal unto Our slave (Muhammad), then produce a surah of the like thereof, and call your witness beside Allah if ye are truthful.

10:38 Or do they say [about the Prophet], “He invented it?” Say, “Then bring forth a surah like it and call upon [for assistance] whomever you can besides Allah , if you should be truthful.”

11:13 Or do they say, “He invented it”? Say, “Then bring ten surahs like it that have been invented and call upon [for assistance] whomever you can besides Allah , if you should be truthful.”

17: 88 Say: “If the whole of mankind and Jinns were to gather together to produce the like of this Qur’an, they could not produce the like thereof, even if they backed up each other with help and support.

52:34 Let them then produce a recital like unto it,- If (it be) they speak the truth!

I do bad things when I am angry and I cant control it. What should I do?

Al Salam Aa’laykom we Rahmut Allah we Barakato,


Prophet Muhammad (SAWS) said: “Whoever curbs his anger, while being able to act, Allah will fill his heart with certainty of faith.” Therefore the consequence for whoever does not curb his anger is that he or she will sooner or later feel its evil consequences.

Anger is a destructive emotion, as a fire which destroys our well-being, consumes our good actions, repels our friends and dear ones, frightens our children and forces the angels to report bad actions for the Heavenly Records. This is a dangerous rough road and no-one is devoid of it and it brings one close to the wrath of Allah; story:

Prophet `Isa (Jesus Christ) -peace be upon him- was once asked: “What thing is difficult?” He said: “God’s wrath.” Prophet Yahya (John the Baptist) -peace be upon him- then asked: 
“What brings near the wrath of God?” He said: “Anger”. 

Yahya - peace be upon him- asked him: 

“What thing grows and increases anger?” Isa -peace be upon him- said: 
“Pride, prestige, hope for honor and haughtiness.” [5]

The good news is that when you are ready to confront the evil kind of anger within your soul, then you have already taken the first decisive step in fighting it.

My advice would be, please find an alternative rather than listening to music. Have you ever REALLY tried listening to Qur’an, instead? Or even better.. reading it? Believe me, you, by Allah’s will, it will calm you down and expel all your bad and negative emotions. If not that, then how about you go out and jog? Or work out it. Do push ups, sit ups, pull ups. Anything that drains all your energy out. 

Focus on SOMEthing. It’s simple once you find any other alternative. I pray to Allah that you may find your peace and find an alternative to your problem. And know that if Allah brought you to it, He will definitely bring you through it.

Hijab.. Why not?

1. I’m not convinced of Hijab:

Can I ask you sister that, who are you? You may reply: I’m a Muslim. What is the meaning of Muslim? The one who completely submits himself totally to Allah for achieving peace, am I right? Sister, Hijab is a clear commandment of Allah (swt) and Muhammad (saw). How we can disobey them and deny what Allah and His Messenger have given to us? Prophet Ibrahim (as) had to sacrifice his son and even he didn’t understand why he had to do such a thing. Does not it teach us how to submit our will to Allah?

2nd Excuse:

The women who say that the most important thing is what is inside, that her intentions are always good, and she is a good person, and the Hijab is the Hijab of the heart. And these women say that they pray 5 times a day, pray the night prayers, pray the voluntary prayers, gives charity. However, she feels that this is enough worship for her. Remember the holy verse of Al-Quran:

“……….Then do you believe in a part of the Scripture and reject the rest? Then what is the recompense of those who do so among you, except disgrace in the life of this world, and on the Day of resurrection they shall be consigned to the most grievous torment. And Allah is not unaware of what you do. Those are they who have brought the life of this world at the price of Hereafter. Their torment shall not be lightened nor shall they be helped. [C: 2, V: 85-86]

The Third Excuse:

The Hijab is not comfortable. And really difficult to maintain in some countries especially in tropical countries. A woman can complain that she loses her hair when she puts on the Hijab, because of the heat. So come on, do you want me to lose my hair and get bald? I won’t put it on because my hair falls off. Sister, Allah (saw) said:“Say that the Hell fire is stronger than the heat of the world.”

The Prophet (saw) said:“Hell is surrounded by our desires, and Jannah is surrounded by the good things.”

Is it still difficult for you to put on the Hijab? But you’ll take GREAT deeds for following Allah’s command!

The Fourth Excuse:

The women say that they knew many ladies who wore Hijab and they have the worst of manners, and do the worst of things. So I don’t want to put the Hijab on because I don’t want to be like them. Okay, I agree with you sister. But there are many people who pray, but do bad deeds too. Does it mean we shouldn’t pray? Some people go to Hajj so that they can hide under the title of Hajj and that they can do bad things. Does that mean we shouldn’t go to hajj? So sister, the wrong is not in the religion, but in the people themselves. So is the Hijab bad or the person who wears the Hijab?

5th Excuse:

Allah has not guided me yet. I will put on the Hijab, but Allah hasn’t guided me to do so now. So, when I will be 50 years old and I have enjoyed my life, I’ll put on the Hijab. No sister, this excuse is totally wrong. Allah said:“Allah does not change a people’s situation unless they change what is within themselves.”You will not put the Hijab on until you change what is within yourself and work towards putting on the Hijab. It’s not acceptable for you to say that Allah has not guided you- no, he has guided you and the proof is that you are listening to these words. The reason you are listening to these words is; Allah has opened the journey of guidance to you. So, it is up to you to obey Him or to not.

6th Excuse:

When I will get married I’ll put on the Hijab.

So let me tell you, a lot of men look for the pious, religious woman who respects herself with her Hijab, more than those men who look for the other women. And Allah has written whom you will marry anyway! So you won’t marry anyone else except for that person that Allah has chosen for you. Don’t be afraid; put your trust in Allah. Allah will give you the pious husband. So when you marry, marry someone who will love you for your righteousness in spite of your physical beauties.

Once a man came to a scholar and asked him: If I’m going to marry my sister to someone, who should it be? The Scholar replied: marry her to a man who is a servant of Allah, so if he loved her, he will respect her, and if he hated her, he will not treat her badly. Marry the man that will protect you and be happy that you are a wearing the veil.

7th Excuse:

I’m still too young to maintain Hijab.

Do you know when you’ll die sister? The death rate for youths is increasing! I want to give you an example of a girl. I have taken the following story from an Islamic Site:“This is a true story that really happened in Egypt, Alexandria last year in Ramadhan. The man was telling me that his wife wears a veil. Living in front of them was a young girl who was not wearing the veil. And the girl has good things inside her heart, like many of our sisters in Islam. However, she doesn’t understand the meaning of the veil and the meaning it has in Islam. So he said that his wife had good relations with this girl. She didn’t ignore her just because she doesn’t wear the Hijab. They were friends. So one day the young girl had come to ask the wife if she’d come shopping with her to buy some jeans. So the intelligent wife (who knows that she has to call the girl towards Allah) agreed to go shopping with her, but under one condition: the girl comes with the wife to an Islamic circle that was going to start. The girl agreed.

So they went to the circle which was about repentance to Allah. The girl was so inspired by what was being said, and started to cry until she kept repeating one sentence over and over again: I’ve repented Allah, please someone cover me. The people told her: okay, let us take you home and you can put the Hijab on. But she refused, wanting to be covered right at that moment with the Hijab; she couldn’t go out without it. So they got her a scarf and a dress, and she left the building with it on. And as soon as she left to cross the road, a car hit her and she died.

She died after she had repented. She is lucky that she repented before she died. So never give the excuse that you are still young, because you never know when you will die.”

8th Excuse:

I want to follow fashion and if I wear the Hijab I’ll be out of fashion.
Isn’t Allah dearer to you than fashion? I swear when you put the Hijab on you’ll have light shinning from within you, and you’ll be more beautiful with your Hijab.

9th Excuse:

I want to follow the Westerners:

Who respect the woman more? Islam or those people who can’t even sell matches without painting a half-naked woman on it? Are they the ones who have respected the woman or exploited the woman? Or Islam, who has respected the woman and covered her and liberated her from exploitation? Do you want respect from Islam or from those apostles? The choice is yours..

10th Excuse:

I don’t want to because I’m afraid of taking it off. Sister, why don’t you put it on with firm faith and ask Allah (swt) to always protect you and let you never take it off. Of course I’m not saying that taking off the Hijab isn’t a sin. Taking off the Hijab is the biggest sin because you would be encouraging other women to do the same. Never ever do this please. Allah (swt) would hate that. Wear the Hijab and do these three things to make sure you will never take it off:
1- Have good religious friends

2- Attend and listen to Islamic lectures

3- Make duaa (supplications) to ask God to keep your Hijab on and strengthen your faith.

Okay, the last excuse:

I’m shy and embarrassed from what my friends and relatives will say if I put the Hijab on. Sister, won’t you be ashamed of yourself from Allah (swt) on the Day of Judgement? Won’t you be embarrassed when you see the Prophet (saw) on the Day of Judgement?
On the Day of Judgement you will be thirsty and the Prophet (saw) will be giving water to everyone. And you will run to him, but two angels will stop you going further. The Prophet will say, leave her! She is from my nation. The angels will say: we cannot Prophet Muhammad, for she did not obey Allah’s command. So the Prophet would say, go away, far away, I do not want to have anything to do with you because you didn’t listen to Allah’s command.

And who will be embarrassed in that day? The one who is showing her body to every one or the one who is respecting and covering it? The Prophet (saw) said:Grab Islam with your hands and teeth!

A Call to my Muslim Sisters:

Sisters in Islam, remember that you are an example to all the Muslim and non-Muslim women. With your manners, worship, smile, even when you are walking down the street, you are an example to everyone and you will indeed inspire many people, without even saying a word. You purify your society! Your good deeds are extreme of value to Allah. You will guide your sisters in Islam. You are our example, our ambassador of Islam. Please, please do not let us down.

Is Dating Haram?

Let me start by explaining that the word “haram” means forbidden. For something to be forbidden, it has to be either stated clearly in the Qur’an or by Prophet Mohamed (PBUH.) However, that does not mean that it is not wrong. Anything could be either wrong or right. It depends on the way you use it. Is watching television haram? It wasn’t stated in the Qur’an, so does that mean that it is ok no matter how inappropriate the content is? Of course not. It depends on how you use (or abuse it.) If you watch inappropriate stuff which is infact haram, then yes it is. Music, television, and the internet are all means of leading you to haram. But is it not infact haram.

Do you understand that part?

Islam encourages Muslims to marry persons for whom they have special feelings and are comfortable with. Thus, Islam recommends that potential marriage partners see one another before proposing marriage. Explaining the reason for such a recommendation, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “That would enhance/foster the bonding.”

However the prospective couple shall not meet in private, this might lead to extremely unwanted situations, as Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “Whenever a man is alone with a woman, Satan is the third among them?” 
(Reported by At-Tirmidhi).

At all times, Muslims should follow the commands of the Qur’an “Tell the believing men to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts, etc.). That is purer for them.”

In conclusion, Islam lays its social structure on the basis of a permanent relationship between a man and a woman in the form of a family.

Consequently, to preserve this marital relationship, it forbids all forms of temporary relationships between a man and a woman. Pre-marital relationships in Islam are not considered respectful for neither the man nor the woman, nor is it constructive for the concept or the building the family or the Islamic society.

Anything that I may have said that is correct, is from Allah (SWT) and all praise and glory is for Him and for Him alone. Anything that I may have said that is in error, is mine and I pray for forgiveness and to be led to the truth. InshaAllah!
