Degradr is a newish, not particularly well publicized app for iPhone by Pavel Kosenko that I ran across on his website while reading around during the RPP review. It’s a one trick pony, to be sure, but it does a fairly nice job at its trick. What does it do? Well, it takes shiny iPhone […]
رَبَّنَا آتِنَا مِن لَّدُنكَ رَحْمَةً وَهَيِّئْ لَنَا مِنْ أَمْرِنَا رَشَدًا Our Lord! Bestow on us mercy from Yourself, and facilitate for us our affair in the right way!
Allah azza wa jall has blessed us with this month to focus on Him and to seek his pleasure. And Alhamdulillah we’re able to witness this blessed month: may He make us able to see many more and to make ever-better use of the time to draw closer to Him. One thing that I’ve noticed […]
In Islam, we strive to do things fisabilillah, for the sake of God, without consideration of worldly gain or worldly harm. We give to charity, we pick up garbage in the street, we give our brothers and sisters Salams, not because it makes us feel good or superior or friendly—though it does—but for the sake […]
يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوٓا۟ إِذَا نُودِىَ لِلصَّلَوٰةِ مِن يَوْمِ ٱلْجُمُعَةِ فَٱسْعَوْا۟ إِلَىٰ ذِكْرِ ٱللَّهِ وَذَرُوا۟ ٱلْبَيْعَ ۚ ذَٰلِكُمْ خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ إِن كُنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ O you who have believed, when [the adhan] is called for the prayer on the day of Jumu’ah [Friday], then proceed to the remembrance of Allah and leave trade. That is better for […]
يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلنَّاسُ ٱعْبُدُوا۟ رَبَّكُمُ ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَكُمْ وَٱلَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ (٢١) 21. O mankind! Worship your Lord (Allah), Who created you and those who were before you so that you may become Al-Muttaqun (the pious – see V. 2:2). ٱلَّذِى جَعَلَ لَكُمُ ٱلْأَرْضَ فِرَٰشًا وَٱلسَّمَآءَ بِنَآءً وَأَنزَلَ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَآءِ مَآءً فَأَخْرَجَ بِهِۦ مِنَ ٱلثَّمَرَٰتِ […]
Should you want to make tasbih, but not have your beads around, your fingers make a good alternative to the mustahab. Every finger has three bones, so it’s pretty easy to count 33 SubhanAllahs, 33 Alhamdulillahs and 33 Allahu Akbars, and your pointer finger is right there to finish it off with la ilaha il […]
