The beautiful Jama Masjid in Old Delhi. The largest mosque in India and the final architectural ‘great work’ of Shah Jahan. Construction of the mosque began in 1644 but it wasn’t completed until 1658. It has 3 gateways, four angle towers and two minarets standing 40m. high, and is constructed of alternating vertical strips of red sandstone and white marble.

This is a phrase that means “may Allah honor him and grant him peace,” and is the Arabic translation of “peace be upon him.” You may see it abbreviated as “SAWS” or “PBUH.”

This is a form of salawat, or sending blessings on the Prophet Muhammad (saws) or on the other…

Asalamuwalaikum,

We all have siblings who bother us or are mean to us. I’m sure you’re young and must be in middle school/high school but all siblings seem mean when you’re younger. When you’re older you’ll probably be the best of friends.

For now though you should just tell your Mom/Dad/guardian if your sibling is ever mean to you or if it’s just a little fight then ask her to apologize and if she doesn’t forgive her anyway since she probably doesn’t know how much it really hurts your feelings.

So I’m hosting (well half) a Fundraising Art on the 23rd of August to raise $10,000 for the education of young girls and job-training of women in Afghanistan.

The night consist of various performances such as the traditional classical Rabab, spoken word, traditional Attan dance etc We will end the night with a art auction, pieces that are donated by local professional Afghan artists as well as many others!

But BRUHHHHHHH is it hard to get people to comeeeee omg. Sponsorship wasn’t as hard as getting people to actually buy tickets. Smh.

Advice? Tickets are $50 for students and $100 for regular. And don’t say “lower the price” LOL we have a goal to reach okay? Plus they get 40% off if they use any of the performers names as discount codes.

Are any of you interested? Torontoians where you attttt?

Walaikumasalam,

Allah SWT created tongues so how would He not understand the language in which you speak? He understands your heart so why would he not understand your tongue? 

Do however try to learn the dua after salah in Arabic and other duas as it is beneficial for you. If you want help then I’ll post it here:

Allahumma Rabba hadhihi-d-da’ watit-tammati was-salatil qa’imati, ati Muhammadan alwasilata wal-fadilata, wab’ athhu maqaman mahmudan-il-ladhi wa’ adtahu (innaka laa 
tukhliful-mee’aad).
“Oh Allah, Lord of this perfect call and established prayer. Grant Muhammad the intercession and favor, and raise him to the honored station You have promised him, (verily You do not neglect promises)”. 
(Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 11, Number 588)

May Allah SWT bless you in the best of health, ilm, and imaan.

Jaizakallah Khair

Share Your Hijab Fashion on Instagram

walk-like-an-egyptian:

For many Muslim women around the world, the hijab — the scarf covering their hair — is not just a religious accouterment but also a symbol of their identity.

Young Muslim women are posting pictures of themselves in their hijabs on Instagram, inspiring large followings and placing more emphasis on the traditional headpiece as a fashion statement.

As part of a planned article, we invite readers to share Instagram photographs of their hijab with us. Tag the photos with #nytfashion, and selected ones will be highlighted on nytimes.com/fashion next week.”

Something in tonight’s lecture really hit me. Nouman Ali Khan spoke about how the Quran said that we as Muslims were CHOSEN by Allah to be Muslims, because He knew we’d be capable to overcome similar trials as to the Prophets. Subhanallah. So many people in this dunya have come and gone, and WE were chosen to be Muslims. You and I, all of us. We did nothing to earn it, yet He sees us worthy enough. Alhamdulillah a thousand times.

Chinese Muslims celebrate end of fast

Muslims across China on Tuesday started celebrating their three-day holiday, Eid al-Fitr, also known as the Feast of Breaking the Fast. 

Muslims from ten ethnic groups across China, including the Hui and the Uyghur, gathered in mosques to pray to Allah, marking the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting. 

Eid al Fitr is a time to celebrate, relax, bond with families, shop and eat. New clothes are given as gifts to children and adults; more importantly, to the poor and needy. Family members get together to have traditional foods and visit relatives and friends.
