THE REASONS WHY SMOKING IS HARAAM ?

Smoking is injurious to health! We see this phrase on every cigarette packet. Perhaps we know that all nations of the world, be it Muslim or non-muslim, have waged war against smoking because it is harmful.  The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “There should be no harming or reciprocating harm.”   There are foods and drinks that are beneficial and harmful as well. Allah described our Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) in the following terms (interpretation of the meaning): “he allows them as lawful At Tayyibaat (i.e. all good and lawful as regards things, deeds, beliefs, persons, and foods), and prohibits them as unlawful Al Khabaa’ith (i.e. all evil and unlawful as regards things, deeds, beliefs, persons, and foods) [al-A’raaf 7:157] Also, it was narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Allaah forbids you to trade gossip, to ask too many questions and to waste money.” And Allaah forbade

A Real Man Never Disrespects a Women!

Men in our society are becoming more and more disrespectful towards women be it the women of their household of the women they don't know. They are always being disrespectful. A real man does not go along with his friends when they make jokes regarding women and degrade them. A real man who fears Allah and the day of Judgement will never do this. He will forbid his friends from the same and try to correct them in most polite and humble manner. A real man takes care of his family, his parents, siblings, wife, and children. He does not choose his friends over his family. Though friends are important, he knows his priorities. He fulfills all the rights and duties of his family and never has a frown on his face when taking care of them. A real man does not concern himself with something that doesn't concern him. He does not boast or show off, he doesn't disregard or belittles anyone. He doesn't hold pride, ego, arrogance, and hate. He doesn't compete with other

POWERFUL ADVICE FROM ALLAH ABOUT LIFE

My dear brothers and sisters, remember that this whole life according to our religion is a life of tests and trails and therefore every one of us will be tested and trailed in different ways but all of us are tested and tried and the one major mechanism to overcome and pass those tests and trails is what? It is patience and that is why Allah says: seek Allah's help when you face the calamities when you have any problems seek Allah's help. Life is difficult and you need help, what help are you gonna get? Allah mentions two things? Seek help through  PATIENCE  and through  SALAH We can learn a lot from the life of our beloved Prophet (saw). Whenever our beloved Prophet (saw) was troubled with anything, whenever something bothered him, what would he do? He would rush to stand in Salah, Salah would make him calm, Salah would make him conquer those problems, those fears, and those frustrations so patience and Salah are the two things that Allah has told us to seek help

WHAT DOES ISLAM SAY ABOUT "LOVE BEFORE MARRIAGE"

Marriage is a very special and sacred bond created by Allah subhana-wa-ta’ala between a man and a woman. Marriage makes them permissible for one another and lives a life of beauty. Allah azzawajal has described in glorious Quran this relationship in most beautiful terms and has mentioned that this bond is filled with love, mercy, compassion, security, and understanding. “And among His signs is this that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that you may dwell in tranquility with them, and He has put love and mercy between your hearts: Verily in that are signs for those who reflect. (Quran 30:21) Thus a marriage is a blessing and a source of mercy and comfort for a man. It is also a very important Sunnah of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (saw)  The Messenger of Allah (May Allah bless him and grant him peace) said: “The Nikah is my Sunnah (way), whosoever leaves my Sunnah is not from amongst me” (Kitabus Sunan – Mishkat) In another narration he has narrated: 

THE EFFECTS OF PORNOGRAPHY ON INDIVIDUALS MARRIAGE

In the Name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful, Islam is not a destination, rather it is a way of life. There is not a topic in Islam that is not touched. It is a complete guide for a believer’s life, from prayer to purity, from Akhlaq to Imaan, from family to business. Everything is balanced. It’s a job of a Muslim to go through it and help himself in following Islam. Allah Most High says in the glorious Quran: "O you who believe, enter into Islam completely and do not follow the footsteps of Satan. Surely he is an open enemy for you." (Qur'an 2:208) We as Muslims believe in the oneness of Allah yet fall prey to evil Fitna’s around the world, the reasons of which are numerous based on the place we live and the company we keep and most important the 24X7 internet connection that we have in our palms. The addiction to evil has become so easy that we do not think twice before committing such sins and become addicted to them. One of the most di

DR ZAKIR NAIK EXPOSES INDIAN GOVT AND INDIAN MEDIA

Assalamu Alaikum , As u all must know that I have been doing Dawah for more than 25 years and my lectures are there on media and social media like facebook, youtube everywhere and I was expecting that I am living in a country India which is not very comfortable for the Muslims and I have been doing dawah and I thought and I was sure that one day that there will be trouble and that was the reason we have to take the steps we could. Recently 3 years back there is a new government which came into the power and we have a new prime minister Narender Modi and we all knew that about 15 years back when he was the chief minister of (Gujrat) one of the states in India. There are many Ngo's, many organizations have given several reports that he was responsible for killings of more than 2 thousand Muslims and we all know that lot of countries around the world files a case against him. He was not given entry to UK and USA and he was not allowed to enter many countries of the world for sev

RULING ON MASTURBATION AND HOW TO CURE THE PROBLEM

Masturbation is haraam in Islam for both men and women. It is forbidden and there are numerous evidence that point out this.  It's a sin which tempts and leads a person towards Zina and immodesty. All believing men and women are to guard their chastity and refrain from such evil acts. The religion of Islam wants a person to be of extremely pure and modest nature. There is no place for any kind of immodest or wickedness in Islam. Allah subhana-wa-ta'ala has made all the good and lawful things pure and clean and the impure things are regarded as unlawful.  It is because of this the Prophet Muhammad(saw) said: "the best of the people is the one with the good character". Hence a person must always strive to be of best character. In another narration, he says: “When your modesty goes on reducing (and there remains no veil of a hindrance in between you and immorality), then do whatever you wish”. (Bukhari) We can conclude from this hadith that with the beginning of

HALLOWEEN IS HARAAM !

In Islam, Tawheed is the essence of one’s faith. Tawheed refers to believing in the monotheism of Allah and it is the core of Islam. The primary objective of Islam is to safeguard this Tawheed. By this, we mean to refrain from all kinds of shirk i.e. polytheism. We must wage a war against anything (customs and practices) that are originated from the ignorance and that violate the faith and Tawheed of a person and of a society as a whole. What Halloween is and why is it celebrated? Every year on 31st October millions of people dress up in costumes and get their faces painted. People usually decorate their houses with ghostly figures, pumpkins, and candles. They light the bonfires and play pranks. Nowadays people are in competition as to who looks scarier. People all around the world participate in this festival and unfortunately, many of them are Muslims. Halloween originated from the ancient Celtic festival (Irish/Scottish/Welsh) called Samhain. It used to be the new years

When Allah Desires Good for Someone, He Tries Him With Hardships

It is narrated in Sahih Bukhari that "when Allah desires good for someone, he tries him with hardships. So when you see someone in some sort of a difficulty, remember it is a blessing from Allah azzawajal. Test and Trials are promised for the people of Paradise in this world. The closest of Allah Azzawajal's servants have faced the most difficult tests in their lives. The prophets are tested most and then the next best and then the next and so on... Persecution and injustice, with the war waged against them, murders, loss of health, freedom, family and wealth, all of this has been the ways of which Allah tested the best of believers in the past, present and will continue to do so in future. Indeed this world is a prison for the believers and a paradise for the unbelievers. Calamities are a means of expiation of sin and raising one's status towards ranks that without tests and trials they could not attain. Tests and trials remove one's sins. It lessens the

IS CELEBRATING BIRTHDAYS (HARAM) FORBIDDEN IN ISLAM

I am aware that there are some group of Muslims who says that celebrating birthdays is haram but as far as I am concerned I don't know of any Quranic verse or any authentic Hadith which says celebrating birthdays is haram so it's clear now that celebrating birthdays is not haram but most of the birthdays celebrated becomes haram for other reasons. For example, television is not haram but because more than 95% or 99 % what comes on the satellite is haram, therefore, i say its better to avoid it. We all know that most of the birthdays which is celebrated as a festival are haram, for example, the birthdays of Non-Muslim Gods because this leads to idol worship. We have to only worship Allah and if you are celebrating a birthday to revere that particular person it leads to idol worship so that is the reason I say celebrating the birthdays of celebrities to commemorate them directly or indirectly leads to idol worship. It may be directly like celebrating the birthday of Jesus

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SUNNI & SHIA MUSLIMS

There is no Sunni and Shia in Quran. You read the Quran and you will not find a single word of Sunni and Shia, Allah says in Quran " Hold to the rope of Allah strongly and be not divided " You have to follow the Quran and authentic Hadith. Shia came later on because of political differences, it has nothing to do with Islam. In Islam, there is no sect, Allah says in Quran " If anyone makes sect in the religion of Islam, Oh Prophet you have nothing to do with him, Allah will look after his affairs " There are many verses in the Quran which says makings sects in the religion of Islam is prohibited, there is no sect in Islam and all these are because of political difference that came but in Islam, there is nothing like Sunni, Shia, there is only Muslim, Muslim is a person who submits his will to Almighty God.  Now one can ask that which belief is more correct and the simple answer to this question is, the belief which believes in Quran and authen

ISLAMIC RULING ON MUSIC AND DANCING

First, I will come to music than I come to dance and as far as music is concerned our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said musical instruments as a general rule they are prohibited except He gives permission for the duff, that's a one-sided open drum beside that the Prophet prohibited it because if you analyze it takes a person away from the remembrance of Allah the Almighty, that is the reason when we hear all these film songs whether it be Hindi or any other language, you find that in these songs most of the words that are mention, they are far away from reality, you know the hero tells the heroine, I will get the stars for you, I will get the moon for you, LOL. We know it's not possible, no man can get the stars or the moon for his lover but yet we keep on repeating so because of this general rule is that music does take a person from the remembrance of the Almighty and that is a reason our Beloved Pr

WHY IS ZINA CONSIDERED HARAAM (FORBIDDEN UNDER ISLAMIC LAW)

One crime, one disease, one sin. That satan has succeeded in driving a man into is the greatest and the most dangerous and the most filthiest sin on the face of this earth is the sin of zina. (Fornication)  A sin that destroys and shatters the homes. A sin that destroys good character, good behavior. That creates envy, hatred, jealousy, discord, enmity between people. That makes the society as a whole collapse. That brings shame, an embarrassment to the family and relatives. That destroys all the relatives together. That breaks them up. And that brings or opens the doors to the worst diseases on the face of this earth. Diseases. Nasty Diseases. Like Gonorrhea, herpes Aids etc. And much more.  Allah says in the Quran: don’t come near adultery or fornication. It is a foul act. Allah calls it “a foul dirty act.” Its pathway will only lead to harm, it will lead you to a pathway with a dead end. It has no good end. You have to come back. You go away from deen and you go furt

BEWARE - THIS SIN MAY ERASE ALL YOUR GOOD DEEDS (SCARY HADITH)

It's a scary Hadith but I need to mention it because we have young brothers and sisters and we are all in need of guidance. The Prophet (saw) says "I know people from my Ummah, from the Muslims, they will come on the day of judgment with the good deeds the size of mountains, glowing bright so the Prophet says and yet Allah will make it disappear like husks of rice. you know, it just blows away in the wind, all their deeds will disappear so the companions ask: O Prophet (saw), describe them to us so we don't do what they do, so the Prophet said: they are from your brothers, and from your tribesmen, and they are not ordinary Muslims, they are people who wake up in the middle of the night and pray as you pray but what is the problem? but they are people when in seclusion, they transgress against the limits of Allah. Think Muslim! When he and she is alone in a room and there is a screen, in a laptop, in a computer, in a phone, they transgress against the limits and boundar

WHY ARE FIRST COUSIN MARRIAGES ALLOWED IN ISLAM? Dr Zakir Naik

As far as marriage is a concern,  Allah says in Qur'an in Surah Nisa Chapter 4 Verse No 20-25  that those marriages which are prohibited like you cannot marry your mother, your daughter, the sister of your father, sister of your mother and the list is given of your close mahram but marrying the first cousin is permitted. Today science tells us that directly if you marry the blood brother and sisters, there are high chances of abnormalities there can be genetic problems so directly brother and sister marry, father and daughter, mother and son if they marry or direct paternal uncle ,etc there are high percentage chances of abnormalities so Islam prohibited this .but as far as the first cousin is concerned Islam permits it. Today science tells us that even in first cousin chances is there but it's negligible .Genetic problem can even come if two people boy and girl even they are unknown, even if they are not relatives yet there can be genetic problem in them , that do

DR ZAKIR NAIK REVEALING HIS SECRET OF EXCELLENT MEMORY - MUST READ

People always ask me that what is the secret of your memory, do you have a computer chip in your brain... The secret is given in the Quran and in my Dawah training program which I did for my students, I say there are 3 things required: NUMBER 1:- The Quran says in "Surah Imran"  That if Allah helps you, none can overcome you and if Allah forsakes you, who is there than who can help you so let the believers put their trust in Allah... Number 1 is trust in Allah. NUMBER 2:- The Quran says in "Surah Ankaboot" If you strive and struggle in the way of Allah, Allah will open up your pathways... Number 2 is Hard work. NUMBER 3:- The Quran says in "Surah Ambiya" If you don't know, ask the person who is knowledgeable... Number 3 is a Technique. The technique which we use in our Dawah training program. People ask me brother Zakir what is the technique? I tell that is the third and the least requirement, Number 1 is the faith in Allah, with all your t

HOW TO KNOW IF YOU HAVE A PURE HEART

Prophet Muhammad (saw) said: ( Verily or as a matter of fact all actions are judged by your intentions)  so whoever intends to migrate for example for the sake of Allah and his Messenger then their migration is for Allah and his Messenger but whoever for example want to migrate for something of this world that he or she wants to attain then their migration is for that which they intended. In other words Prophet Muhammad (saw) is explaining to us that any action, any imaginable action that you can think of, the reward of it, in the end, depends on what your intention was in here. Prophet Muhammad (saw) said: Behold in this body there is a lump of flesh, if it is righteous and good then the rest of the body is righteous and good but if it is corrupt then the rest of body is corrupt, behold it is the heart which is inside here and I don't mean the heart which pumps the blood only but it is a feeling within here in your chest that when a person is doing something that is wrong an

WHY DID NOT GOD CREATE ONLY ONE RELIGION - Dr Zakir Naik

If you read the Quran, Allah says "The only Religion acceptable in the sight of Allah is Islam" Islam means submitting your will to Almighty God so if you read all the religions, Almighty God only sent messengers to preach one religion. All the messengers that came till the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) only preach one religion, Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said there were hundred and twenty-four thousand messengers sent on the face of the earth. Its mentioned in the Quran "There is not a nation or a tribe to whom we not sent a warner or a guide" Allah says in Quran "And to every people we have sent a warner" so all the messengers that came, they taught nothing but to submit their will to God and the basic message that all these messengers taught oneness of God but due to passage of time all what the messengers preach its got corrupted and most of the scriptures that came before the Quran, they got changed and Allah says in the Quran in several places "If

DON'T BE SAD IF YOUR PRAYERS AREN'T ANSWERED - HERE IS THE REASON WHY?

The answer to this question is given in the Holy Quran in Surah Baqarah : ''But it is possible that you may dislike a thing which is good for you and you may love a thing which is which is bad for you, for Allah knows everything and you know not'' For example, if a very religious person, a very pious person he prays to Allah that please give me a motorcycle and his prayers is not answered, we will say what a religious person he is, why his prayers not being answered, Allah knows that if he acquires a motorcycle, he may have an accident and he may die as the Holy Quran says that you may love a thing which is bad for you, Allah knows you know not. Once there was a very rich businessman who was going to catch a flight to London to click a deal which would fetch him a profit of 1 billion dollars and when he is traveling towards the airport, unfortunately, there is unusual traffic jam on road and he is unable to reach the airport on time, by the time he reaches the air
