Habib Ali al-Jifri on Christmas

Islamic stance on Christmas I remind my brothers from among the students of sacred knowledge that the scholars who forbid congratulating non-Muslims on their religious celebrations tied their judgement to the assumption that congratulating affirms certain tenets of belief (held by non-Muslims) that are diametrically opposed to Islam. They anchored their judgement on a widespread understanding and custom particular to their time that congratulating others … Continue reading Habib Ali al-Jifri on Christmas

Cartoon of the beloved

Guidelines for the Muslim Community regarding new cartoons to be published Tomorrow – Wednesday 14 January 2015

The following points are general guidelines for Muslims on how to initially deal with and immediately react to the depiction of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ in magazines (Charlie Hebdo) due to be published tomorrow (WEDNESDAY).

2. The publishing of cartoons will hurt the sentiments of 1.8 billion Muslims around the world, as well as millions of non-Muslims who respect the great personality of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

3. Muslims do believe in freedom of Continue reading “Cartoon of the beloved”

Animal rights in Islam

It is not only humanity that was liberated by the coming of Islam but Animals too. Animals had rights, owning an animal never meant it was absolutely your property any more. Britain’s oldest animal shelter was formed in the nineteenth century, whilst 1200 years ago Muslims set up the first animal welfare centres. There is a popular but often neglected Hadith where:   A good … Continue reading Animal rights in Islam

Cause of a Revolution

Cause of a Revolution


This art illustrates my interpretation of revolution or that of evolution.

From left to right, the small yellow squares represent a particular way of life, a system in nature or that of the an institution. The systematical rows of these squares declare a passage of continuous time where not much change is happening. However, on the third row Continue reading “Cause of a Revolution”

Personality Vs Character

Personality Vs Character There is a trend amongst young people where the following phrase is asserted ‘its not about looks, its about personality’. I think its actually really silly and selfish to think like this; you’re actually just as shallow as one who only focuses on looks. What most of you probably mean or should mean is It’s about the character. There’s obviously confusion between the … Continue reading Personality Vs Character

Secrets in Archery

Archery – A Sunnah Sport Full of Secrets

Wondering how to do ibadah (worship) while playing a sport? A few years ago a friend and I followed our beloved Prophet’s (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) advice and started archery.
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) once passed by some people of the tribe of Bani Aslam who were practicing archery. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) said:
“O Bani Isma`il ! Practice archery as your father Isma`il was a great archer. Keep on throwing arrows and I am with Bani so-and-so.” [Bukhari

I pulled out an old wooden bow from the attic and bought some arrows. Five minutes away was an archery club and it turned out to be the place I would go to several times a week for years to come. It didn’t take long before I decided to get some serious equipment. Here are some of the most important lessons I learnt about and through archery over the years: Continue reading “Secrets in Archery”


Survival of the fittest

Survival of the Fittest Darwin has wrote about the ‘Survival of the Fittest’, I’ve realised its not only that, that is necessary. Those who survive, succeed, get ahead or gain victory are those who have a more need, a want and a must coupled with a passionate desire to reach the goal. I drew the above picture to express a little better. Two cars racing to the end. Looking at the … Continue reading Survival of the fittest

Husbands for sale

Why are women so Fussy?


A store that sells husbands to single women opens where a woman may go to choose from many available men. At the entrance is a description of how the store operates.

There are only six floors. It states that the attributes of the men increase as the shopper ascends the flights. There is, however, a catch: As you open the door to any floor you may choose any man from that floor, but if you go up a floor, you cannot go back down except Continue reading “Husbands for sale”
