Importance of Sunnah, Hadith & Scholars

By Admin

We see numerous ayaat in Qur’an where Allah clearly mentions the importance of Authentic Sunnah & Hadiths and the scholars who rely on them. This has to be the basis of our deen, and aqidah. Any self-interpretation of deen that goes against the Quran, Sunnah and the consensus of Scholars has no value.

Role of Messenger (SAS)

By Admin

The role of Messenger (SAS) can be categorized into four:
1. Reciting the verses of Quran to everyone
2. Purifying or sanctifying people.
3. Teaching the book
4. Teaching the wisdom

It is important that we understand that each of these roles was intended by Allah Himself and to state that only the first function is of permanent significance is simply to flout the Word of Allah.

By Admin

The term Hadeeth has become a synonym for the term Sunnah, though there is some difference in their meanings. Sunnah, as a technical term in the Science of Hadeeth, refers to whatever statements, acts, approvals, physical or character descriptions that are attributable to the Prophet (pbuh) along with his biography before or after the beginning of his prophet hood. Hadith on the other hand are the recordings of Sunnah.

Obligation on every Muslim to ask for Evidence

By Admin

It is important to clear our doubts regarding Islam from people of knowledge. Indeed it is the way of companions of Muhammad (sas) to clear doubts regarding Islam.

Importance of Sunnah & Hadiths

By Admin

There are two main fundamental sources of knowledge in Islam – The Qur’an and the Hadeeth. Often people associate Islam with teachings and commandments of only Qur’an; this is true for both Muslims and non-Muslims. However this attitude of ignoring the Hadeeth or Sunnah has lead to many misunderstandings about the already misunderstood way of life, Islam. Best example being that of the perception of Islam promoting hatred. Such doubts and baseless allegations arise mostly due to partial study of Islamic literature.

Proof of the Preservation of Quran

By Admin

There are hundreds of religions flourishing around the world and each of these religions claim that their scripture is authentic and preserved from the day it was revealed (written) until our time. A religious belief is as authentic as the authenticity of the scripture it follows. And for any scripture to be labeled as “authentically preserved” it should follow some concrete and rational criteria. As we say, “Faith Must Have Proof”. This article shows how Islam fulfills this criteria and provides proof of preservation and authenticity of Quran.

The concept of God in Islam

By Admin

There are many religions and spiritual institutions that say they believe in One God. Even many polytheistic religions do not entirely claim to believe in multiple gods. Amidst these claims of Monotheism by one and all, people usually misinterpret Islam as ‘just another’ religion that believes in ‘One God’.

However, a real look into Islamic concept of God makes one realize the degree to which a Islam believes in this Oneness of God, and how it is so very different and distinctly pure from all others that claim to believe in one God.

An Introduction to Islamic Monotheism

By Admin

There are two Arabic words that are important to know for a discussion of Islamic monotheism. These are tawhid and shirk. Tawhid means “declaring God is one”, while shirk means “associating partners with God”. Thus tawhid is monotheism while shirk is to negate this by associating godly powers to others apart from God.

The Islamic scholars have defined three aspects to tawhid, each of which has several types of shirkthat negate it. Each of these will be discussed in turn.
