“By The Morning Brightness And By The Night When It Grows Still..


  • Today’s thought comes from the Qur’an,

Surah 93 (ad-Dhuha) Ayah 1-5:

  • “By the morning brightness and by the night when it grows still, your Lord has not forsaken you, nor does He hate you, and the future will be better for you than the past; your Lord is sure to give that you will be well pleased.” [Qur’an 93:1-5]
  • This surah was revealed in the context that, after the initial revelation, a pause of several months followed in which the Prophet (saw) received no more communication from Allah (swt).
  • The Prophet began to feel depressed, thinking that he had done something wrong or something to anger Allah.

His fellow Makkans, who were already skeptical of his claims, even began to ridicule him.

The lesson here is,

  • Tough times come in life of every human being, and more often than not, tough times are what make us who we are.
  • Today, depression, despair and sense of total hopelessness have been rife on earth even among Muslims, more than ever before. Soon antidepressants will become the most prescribed drug, and probably it is already in other parts of the world. But, a person who is depressed or grieved requires nurturing and caring of a well-wishing soul, more than his or her need of the pill. And who better to speak to you to calm you down than Allah – Jallah Jalaaluhu.

Action of the day:

  1. 1. When the tough gets going in any sphere of your life, reflect on these verses. These beautiful verses represent the antidepressant prescription from your Creator and Sustainer for all your grieves.

2. You need to wake up and see the sunshine; you need to remember that Allah loves you and will not forsake you; and you need to BELIEVE that things will get better for you, as He promised.

How Muslims Should Demand Their Rights

By His Eminence Shaikh Ahmed al Khalili, Grand Mufti of the Sultanate — A Muslim weights his deeds with the balance of piety to measures their harms and benefits and decides whether or not to embark upon done within lawful and reasonable limits. The common interest is — without a doubt — given preference over the individual interest, hence the claim of an individual’s rights is considered unlawful in Islam when it conflicts with the collective interest or undermines it, in which case the end never justifies the means. A Muslim has to contemplate both, the end and the means,

Impact Of Unfounded Rumours On Society

By His Eminence Shaikh Ahmed al Khalili, Grand Mufti of the Sultanate — Muslims are ordered not to speak of anything before verifying the correctness of what they intend to say and making sure that they aren’t telling falsehood; otherwise dire consequences will result from the spread of unfounded rumours. Allah the Exalted has laid a strong emphasis on this matter when He said: “There is not a word man utters but an observer is ready ‘to make note of it”. The Prophet, peace be upon him, said: “A man might speak a word without thinking about its implications, but
