Poem: 'In Praise of Allah'



I happen to glance into the piece of flesh which is my heart and
Found the marvellous exalted presence and existence of Allah;
The never-ending relationship which assures
Eternity in Allah for as long as Allah exists;
The sweetness of a camaraderie
which is priceless and untouched by any evil;
The price of this love is found in Allah Himself;
He is the Love which makes the heart pound,
He is the Fashioner of forms and existence;
He is the never-ending light towards fulfilment,
He is fulfilment and tranquillity,
He is my Light, my Love

The marvellous glow of His love has touched my heart,
Such a touch that even an angel cannot accede to,
Such a level of thought that no human has ever witnessed before,
Save those whom my Love has elevated with His precious comprehension.
His Glory surpasses the glories of the deities of man’s imagination and creation,
This understanding is only for those who wish to merge themselves in that light and
Be untouched by anything which may separate the Creator with His subject.



We are a matter in the Hand of this Greatest Knowledge Builder,
Who creates new knowledge with every breath of His existence,
Who finds solace in His own majesty,
Who cares for all who cares for Him,
Who loves with the extent of the most powerful loving stance.
He is Allah, the Soother of hearts,
The Sweet Balm of every heart.

  The existence of existence other than Him is pure fantasy,
He is beauty of incomparable beauty,
The essence of an untouched and unknown super power,
                 Unknown to the world of His creations.

He is Allah,
The Pure,
The Embracer of Life,
The Protector of His most devoted servants;
He is Allah,
The sweet elixir of life,
The shining light which is more poignant than the known and unknown suns.
He is Allah the Secret,
The Love undefined by any definition,
He is Allah, my sweet love,
The One who is here at every step of the way,
Who makes shine the universe of His existence in the very nest of His Love.

Devotion merges in devotion,
Calling people of every form,
Race and culture to leave everything behind
To recognise His magnanimity,
And to purify the hardest of hearts till it becomes as soft as the
Most delicate of Rose petals,
Which releases the most exquisite of scents
To make the world an abode of Divine Bliss. Insha’ Allah.


The words are of Allah and from Allah unto your heart,
A living heart which tastes everyday of its life,
Life from the merciful Lord.

Significance of Surah Al Fatiha

... I have chosen to talk/explain today on a never-ending subject. I can say that if the ocean was ink and all trees in this world and the universe were pens and the sky and earth were papers, therefore all these would have come to an end but not the commentary of the Surah Al-Fatiha. This is because of the high importance of this chapter in the life of a believer, and this chapter is the first chapter of the Holy Quran. It is so important that one has to start with the Surah Al-Fatiha when he begins his prayer (Namaz/Salat). And to start supplications (duahs) to Allah, the Surah Al-Fatiha needs to be recited first. This is because of the nature of its greatness as a chapter and duah. In whatever situation a person may be, be it a difficulty, an illness or a state of suffering or any other problems he finds himself in, therefore he needs to recite the Surah Al-Fatiha.
By the grace of Allah, today 22nd August 2014, I have thought about explaining a bit again on this very important chap…

A Warning to Nasir Ahmad Sultani

Nasir Ahmad Sultani, the founder of Jama’at Ahmadiyya (Haqiqi) claims that Allah Almighty has appointed him as Mujaddid for 15th century of Islamic calendar on March 31st 2011. His group and he himself had been claiming as their “speciality” that he “has live contact with Allah Almighty” and that no other religious leader of this age can compete with him in this. 
In recent comments published at the official Blog of the Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement onOctober 19, 2011, Sultani Sahib made sweeping statements:
Live contact with Allah Almighty is the main objective of a religion. Every religion and nowadays Islam must provide opportunity to connect people to their Creator. But there was none. I have searched and challenged all over the world. There is none of the followers of Islam who has his own presentable live connection with Allah Almighty.
There are some people who are claiming. But if you see minutely, you will know easily that they are not on the right path. Like Munir A. Azim sb., A.…

Prophet Muhammad: The Perfect Role Model

Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh) is the only human and divine prophet to have reached the degree of perfect excellence, such excellence which is agreeable to human nature and the Creator Himself. With the revelation of the Holy Quran upon his humble self, Allah told him to say to the people: 
“If you love Allah, then follow me;Allah will love you, forgive you your sins.” (3: 32).
The declaration of the Holy Quran is clear. It is set with such a condition which is agreeable to the ways of Allah, which is: Obey Allah and Obey the Prophet.Guidelines to obeying Allah are found in obeying the prophet and manifest the exquisite nature of being a good listener of the divine revelations and putting those instructions into practice.
There is abundant historical evidence to prove that those who have reformed their lives, by deciding to mould their lives according to the Holy Prophet’s model emerged from the abyss of ignorance and barbarism and poverty to be the teachers of arts and sciences and morals and s…
