    Invite to the way of your Lord with wisdom

    The need for religion is greater than the need for food and drink. A person is by nature a religious person. If he does not find the true religion, he will then invent a religion for himself, similar to what happened with the pagan religions created by humankind. Human beings need security in this life, just as they need protection after death; the true religion gives its followers complete safety in this life and the Hereafter. The measures of the true religion: Belief in God: Is essential for a person to have faith in a deity, whether the belief in the true God or in any false deity. He may…

    Teachings of Islam

    Nothing in Islam’s teachings lead people to atheism; there are no mysteries or ambiguities in Islam that confuse the mind. Islam is simple and solid. The teachings of Islam are summarized as follows: Islam teaches that the universe has one God. He is the Creator of the universe and what it contains. Nothing is like Him. The Muslim must worship his Creator alone by communicating with Him directly upon repentance from sin or seeking help, not through a priest, saint, or mediator. God is the Most Merciful to His creatures, more than a mother to her children, so He forgives them whenever they sincerely repent to Him. It is the…

    Secrets of Ramadan

    I was astonished one day that a French Catholic woman had a strong hatred for the month of Ramadan, since her Muslim husband does not perform any of the pillars of Islam except fasting, and this lady could not prevent him from doing that, even though he lives far away from any social influence as he lives outside his country. One day, she angrily said in front of a group of Muslim women: I can’t stand this month. I had a conviction at that time that a person’s extreme hatred of a ritual in Islam means that this ritual has secrets, great virtue, and has a special importance to God,…

    The Ultimate Truth

    One day, someone told me, “There is no absolute truth” as there is no true religion; all religions are equal and correct, and all paths lead to God. There is no right or wrong for anything in existence. All principles in reality are relative, not absolute. I told him: Are you entirely sure about that? He said: Yes. I told him: You just mentioned an absolute statement – and this itself confirms the existence of the absolute. He said: The absence of absolute truth is the only truth. A person can believe whatever he wants as long as he does not impose his views on others. I told him: Your…

    The fall of false gods in Corona times

    Indeed, God will complete his light, but the disbelievers will still dislike it: One day in Africa at the language center, I was frustrated about the situation our world had reached, which is avoiding God’s religion and turning to other religions by asking an object or a saint or obeying priests that wouldn’t benefit them nor harm them. I was engrossed in my thoughts. Suddenly, a Muslim French language teacher interrupted me by asking about the reason behind my deep thinking. I answered him: “What bothers me and causes me to overthink is that people are ignorant about God’s religion, and I feel that I have a responsibility towards that.…

    Religion and Science

    None is the victor but God: In our visit to Al-hambra palace in Granada, we found a phrase engraved on the walls which said “None is the victor but Allah (The One True God)“. My eyes burst into tears because the breeze of the glorious history of Muslims was around everywhere. I imagined the days of yore when Muslim scientists used to teach the Arabs and the western world medicine, pharmacy, geometry, astronomy, and poetry. As a matter of fact, Muslims had also established the first university all over Europe in Spain. Still in my imagination, I also experienced the days of Abdul-Rahman Ad-Dakhil[1], whose army girded Italy and France;…

    We have not sent you except as a mercy to the worlds

    Indeed, you are of a great moral character: I have always been contemplating the praise of Almighty God for the morals of His Messenger Muhammad (peace upon him). I was hoping that I could understand the magnificence of these morals; I wanted to understand the brilliance in the personality of this great Prophet. Eventually, when my mother died, I felt extreme sorrow. It would’ve almost destroyed my life if it wasn’t for God’s mercy on me. Despite that I was already married and I did not need her care, missing her still made me lose a desire to talk to people. I felt that the whole world was tightening around…

    My Lord is Most Merciful and Compassionate

    We feed you only for the countenance of God: I remember in the first two years of our stay in Lagos, Nigeria, we lived in hotel apartments so that it would be easy for us to look for a suitable house near the kids’ schools. Usually, after I came back from any trip, I was keen to bring simple presents for all janitors and the workers, and share with them food and drinks. At that time, spreading the word of Islam (da’wa) was not in my mind at all; my intention was only to get close to God by giving gifts. When we decided to leave that place in order…

    The Religion in the sight of God is Islam

    You are the best nation that has ever emerged for humanity: I once remember being praised by my German language teacher. She asked: How do you have all this energy to enjoy education, exert effort as well as money and health in studying, to work, and also take care of your children? I answered: From the commandments of the Messenger of Allah, (Prophet Muhammad), may God bless him and grant him peace. He said: “Take advantage of five before five: your youth before your old age, your health before your illness, your riches before your poverty, your free time before your work, and your life before your death.” Then she said:…

    Realizing the purpose of life in Corona times

    There is no life worth living except the life of  the Hereafter:        I have been always struggling to fully understand this saying of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. I wanted to get out of this inner contradiction. I wanted to balance between gaining happiness for myself and my loved ones in this life, yet on the other hand I know how great the happiness is in the Hereafter. The struggle continued until my father got sick. I was living in Africa with my kids and husband (who was a delegate of the United Nations project). I was sad because I lived far away from my father who was…
