اَلْبَارِئُ – Al Baari’ : The Originator

  • Allah Ta’ala is the one who brings things into existence.
  • Allah Ta’ala alone brings things from non-existence into existence.
  • There was nothing and Allah Ta’ala made everything.
  • We need bricks, windows and doors to make a small house. But Allah Ta’ala does not need anything to make the entire world. Without a drop, Allah Ta’ala made the oceans. Without a leaf, Allah Ta’ala made the trees. Without sand Allah Ta’ala made the mountains.
  • Allah Ta’ala alone brings things from non-existence into existence, with wisdom and perfection.

Dear Ustaaz / Apa

Explain this quality of Allah Ta’ala to the children and make them understand that Allah Ta’ala creates without any raw material

Allah Ta’ala alone fashions and shapes everything to perfection and full of beauty. When Allah Ta’ala created us, He created us with perfection. Allah Ta’ala did not give us a long giraffe neck or a small chicken leg or a long elephant nose or sharp crocodile teeth. Allah Ta’ala shaped us perfect and beautiful. No one can change us or improve on us. Allah Ta’ala alone fashions and shapes things as He wishes. Look and admire the creation of Allah Ta’ala and enjoy the beauty and perfection of His creation. This will bring alive in us the recognition and appreciation of our Allah.

Imaani Muzakarah

If I look after Allah’s commands, Allah Ta’ala will look after me and will be with me
If I need anything, I must ask Allah Ta’ala alone and turn to Allah Ta’ala alone for help
The whole world cannot hurt me or help me without the permission of Allah Ta’ala
Allah Ta’ala created me, He owns me, feeds me and takes care of me

العزيز – ​Al-Azeez​: The Mighty / The Strong

All might and strength belong to Allah Ta’ala alone. Nothing and no one can stand in front of Allah Ta’ala. If Allah Ta’ala wants, in one second He can crush the whole world. We are so small and weak, what will happen to us? Therefore, we should fear and obey ALLAH TA’ALA Who is Most Strong.

اَلسَّلَامُ – As Salaam: The Giver of Peace

2018-10-19T12:47:14+00:00

اَلسَّلَامُ – As Salaam: The Giver of Peace

Who gives us peace? Only Allah Ta’ala gives us peace.

Money cannot buy peace. Holidays cannot give us peace. Allah Ta’ala alone gives us peace. A soft bed cannot give us a peaceful sleep. Allah Ta’ala alone gives us a peaceful sleep. When brother and sister fight or mother and father stop speaking to each other, then only Allah Ta’ala can make peace between them. The haraam T.V. and video games cannot bring peace in the home. Music cannot bring peace. Allah Ta’ala alone brings peace in our homes. Turn to Allah Ta’ala alone for peace.

Whenever you are worried and want peace read: يَا سَلَامُ (Ya-Salaamu) in abundance.

One Advice: As Muslims we have to always guard our tongues. No swearing! No teasing! No lying! Every word we speak is written down by the angels. We do not use a toothbrush to shine our shoes and then use the same toothbrush to brush our teeth. In the same way how can we use our tongues for dirty words and then the same tongues to take the pure name of Allah Ta’ala. Let us learn the lesson, “Think before we speak.”

اَلْقُدُّوْسُ – Al Quddoos: The Most Pure: Free from all faults

Who is the most pure? Allah Ta’ala is Most Pure.

Who is free from all faults? Allah Ta’ala is free from all faults.

Sometimes we are good and sometimes we are bad. Our actions are mixed up in good and in bad. Our Allah Ta’ala is completely pure, not mixed up with any bad.

We are very weak. We forget and we make mistakes all the time. We are full of faults. Our Allah Ta’ala is free from all faults. Our Allah Ta’ala never forgets and never makes mistakes.

We must love our Allah Ta’ala who has not a single fault. He is Al-Quddoos, The Most Pure, Free from all faults.

ُاَلشَّكُوْر Ash Shakoor – Allah Ta’ala is Very Thankful / Very Appreciative

ُاَلشَّكُوْر Ash Shakoor – Allah Ta’ala is Very Thankful / Very Appreciative

Our Allah Ta’ala is the Most Appreciative. He appreciates everything we do for Him. Even if we do a little for Allah Ta’ala, our Kind and Loving Allah Ta’ala appreciates it, becomes happy with us and gives us much, much more.

But when it comes to friends, even if we do everything for them, they do not appreciate what we do for them and are never happy with us. They always want more and more from us. It’s so hard to keep everyone happy, but it is so easy to keep our One Allah Ta’ala happy.

So let us keep on doing only for Allah Ta’ala and spending only for Allah Ta’ala and He will always appreciate whatever we do for Him and in return will always give us much more.

الرزاق – Ar Razzaaiq: The Provider

Who feed us? Who feeds our parents? Who feeds the fish in the sea? Who feeds the birds in the sky? Who feeds the ants in the ground?

The fish are swimming and Allah Ta’ala is feeding them. They don’t go to school and university. Allah ta’ala does not need schools and universities. The grade 12 metric certificate and the university degree does not give us food. Allah Ta’ala alone feeds us. The birds are flying in the sky. They don’t have shops and jobs. Allah Ta’ala feeds them. Shops and jobs can’t feed us. Allah Ta’ala alone feeds us. Allah Ta’ala knows how many potatoes we are going to eat and how much milk we are going to drink. No one can change it. Whatever we need, we should ask Allah Alone. Only Allah Ta’ala can provide us with our needs.

مَالِكُ الْمُلْكِ – Maalikul Mulk: The Owner of the Kingdom

2018-10-19T09:06:13+00:00

مَالِكُ الْمُلْكِ – Maalikul Mulk: The Owner of the Kingdom 

Allah Ta’ala is the owner of everything. Allah Ta’ala owns the entire world. Nothing belongs to us. Everything belongs to Allah Ta’ala. Our house, our car, our clothes, our parents, all belong to Allah Ta’ala. Allah Ta’ala can take it away whenever He wants. Therefore we must use everything as Allah Ta’ala wants from us.
When our cousins come home for a holiday, they sleep in our room, play with our toys and eat in our kitchen. After the holiday they don’t take our room, our toys and our kitchen with them to their homes, because it does not belong to them. In the same way when we die, we don’t take our house, our car and our clothes with us into our graves, because it doesn’t belong to us. Everything belongs to Allah Ta’ala. America, Africa, Australia and Asia all belong to Allah Ta’ala. The sun, the moon, the stars, the planets all belong to Allah Ta’ala. We all belong to Allah Ta’ala. We live for Allah Ta’ala, we die for Allah Ta’ala and one day we will all return to Allah Ta’ala.
Advice for the children
Listening to Nazams: If a nazam, nasheed or naat has the singing style of music, then it is haraam to listen to such a nazam. If a nazam has any background music then too this nazam is haraam to listen to. Today most of the nazams have become singing and music. How disrespectful they are! They use the pure name of Allah Ta’ala and Nabi Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam to make dirty music. Most of the time radio stations play musical singing haraam nazams. May Allah Ta’ala protect us from listening to them and let us remind others as well.

الحفيظ – Al Hafeez: The Protector

If Allah Ta’ala protects us, nothing can harm us.

Usually we hear of jinnaat and jadu, and we get scared. But as a Muslim we forgot Allah Ta’ala. We need to turn to Allah Ta’ala for protection. Read our Salaah, Quran, Zikr and Duas. Insha Allah Allah Ta’ala will protect us.

Today there is a lot of stealing, hijacking and killing. Once again we need to turn to Allah Ta’ala for protection. No doubt we put the best alarm system, strongest burglar guard, we keep a gun and we have the police’s number, but we forgot Allah Ta’ala. Allah Ta’ala is our protector.

Many car accidents take place. When we sit in a car we do not know if we will come alive or not. Keep turning to Allah Ta’ala for protection. Ask Allah to take us safely and to return us home safely.

Remember, Allah Ta’ala is The Protector

العليم – Al ‘Aleem: The All Knowing

2018-10-19T09:07:29+00:00

العليم – Al ‘Aleem: The All Knowing

Allah alone knows everything. He knows the past, the present and the future. Allah Ta’ala knows all that is in the sky, beneath the earth, in the depths of the deep blue ocean. Allah Ta’ala knows how many leaves on the trees, how many drops of rain fall from the sky and how many grains of sand on the earth. We look in the mirror everyday but we don’t know how many strands of hair on our head. Allah Ta’ala knows how many strands there are, how long each strand is, how many fell off and how many still to grow. Allah Ta’ala knows how heavy the mountains are and how many litres of water in the sea. Allah Ta’ala knows what is in our hearts. At times we smile on the outside, but inside we hate the person we are smiling at. Allah Ta’ala knows our thoughts. At times we are in Salaah but our minds are at home or playing with the friends or eating or drinking.

FOOD: Muslims only eat halaal food, no haraam food. If we eat even one morsel of haraam, for 40 days our duaas are not accepted.

Our meat and chicken must be bought from a Muslim butchery or Muslim supermarket, and not from Spar, Checkers, Shoprite, Pick N Pay etc. since these are not run by Muslims.

Don’t just eat from any place that has a halaal sign. Check up first. If there is a halaal sign on a beer bottle, this does not make it halaal.

Many sticky, jelly sweets have gelatine, pig fat.

Be CAREFUL. Eat only what is Halaal and stay away from Haraam
