Moon Sighting


The first day of the month of Dhul-qa`adah has been confirmed to be Friday, August 05, 2016


Rebecca Masterton & her guest Arif Chandoo discuss the life and martyrdom of Imam Jaffar as-Sadiq (a.s.).


Imam Ja'far b. Muhammad al Sadi'q (a.s.)
This is an account of the Imam who was in charge (al-qai'im) after Abu Ja'far Muhammad b. Ali, peace be on them, (including) who his mother was, the date of his birth, evidence for his Imamate, his age, the period of his succession (to the Imamate), the time of his death, the place of his grave, the number of his children, and a brief outline of the reports about him. . .


Save for the love of my relatives
The Prophet's Household (Ahl al-Bayt) occupy a special position in Islam. God instructs His Messenger(s) in the Qur'an: 'Say, 'I do not ask you any reward for it except love of [my] relatives.' (42:23) In other words, the only reward the Prophet was told to ask in return for delivering the message of Islam was that the people show respect and affection for his relatives - his Ahl al-Bayt. . .


The centrality of the Prophet Muhammad(s) to Islamic spirituality
Although modern western societies might be more alienated from religion than most, they tend to regard with greater reverence the mystical paths of religion. Buddhism for example, came to be known to the West through the oriental martial arts, Zen poetry, and even through fiction. Hinduism is. . .


Islam and Racism
Islam treats mankind as one great family of brothers and sisters. Islam has brought people and peoples together, freeing them from the trammels of division and difference, and calling them to establish the bases of accord and agreement in a society of brotherhood which is the natural state of man. . .


'Read, in the name of your Lord!'
The emphasis on literacy that began with the Prophet continued with the classical scholars, who saw writing as the foremost means of preserving and transmitting knowledge. This is reflected in the fact that major Islamic centres of learning, such as the Dar al-Hikma in Abbasid Baghdad, began collecting, translating and copying manuscripts on a near-industrial scale. . .

Words of Wisdom


  22 Dhul-qa`adah 1437
 

One who assents or subscribes to the actions of a group or a party is as good as having committed the deed himself. A man who joins a sinful deed makes himself responsible for two-fold punishments, one for doing the deed and the other for assenting and subscribing to it.  Imam Ali (a.s.)
