In the mountain ranges of Warqaan which is located between Makkah Mukarramah and Madinah Munawwarah, there lived a tribe known as Muzainah. A baby boy was born to parents, from this tribe, who were extremely poor. They named him Abdul Uzza. Not long after his birth, his father passed away leaving behind the young child as an orphan. However, this boy had a paternal uncle who was extremely wealthy and had no children of his own. Therefore he took the innocent young […]
- Punctuality: Try and be in the class at least 5 minutes before the class time commences. This will Insha Allah assist the pupils also to be punctual in class. The Ustaad /Apa should leave the class only once the period is over. If for some reason we have to arrive late or stay absent from class, phone your principal or Supervisor and in […]
Azaan is one of the outstanding signs of Islam. The words of the Azaan denote the oneness and greatness of Allah Ta’ala. The Muazzin calls out the Azaan five times a day inviting the Muslims to perform their salaah with jamaat in the house of Allah. The call of the Muazzin in actual fact is the call of Allah Ta’ala.

In this Imaani Muzaakarah, the need is to keep on repeating. Repetition will Insha-Allah bring conviction.
Line 1: The first line is, “I will look after Allah’s commands and Allah will look after me and be with me.”
The child has to be convinced that protection lies in Allah’s commands. In Allah’s commands I will find Allah. I cannot afford to move away from Salaah, the Masjid, the Qur’aan and the Maktab in times of difficulty.
Line 2: The second line is, “If I need anything, I will ask Allah Alone, and turn to Allah Alone for help.”
At the time of need and help, I should be turning to and asking Allah. Today we are only turning to the means and asking the creation; completely forgetting our creator, Allah.
Line 3: The third line is, “The whole world cannot help me or hurt me, without the permission of Allah.”
This conviction has to settle deep in the heart, that every condition of benefit or harm, is only with Allah’s permission. Illness does not decide on its own who to go to and how to go. Allah is controlling and deciding.
Line 4: The fourth line is, “What’s not written for me, will never come to me. And what came to me, could never miss me.”
We believe in Taqdeer, Allah’s divine decision, perfect planning, having complete knowledge of everything. When we forget this, we end up questioning and blaming others. A man after adopting all the means, still falls sick, so he asks, “How come I fell sick?” In reality he completely forgot Allah. His question ought to have been, “How come I forgot Allah?”
What is desired from this Imaani Muzaakarah is that when anything happens, our minds and hearts should immediately turn to Allah.
