This is an excellent book translated and commented by Abu Eesa Niamatullah. The book contains selected Prophetic ḥadīth and narrations from the early Imāms on the Islamic imperative to work and engage in commerce taken from the book al-Ḥaththu ‘ala’l-Tijārah wal-Ṣinā‘ah of Imām Abu Bakr Aḥmed b. Muḥammad al-Khallāl al-Baghdādī al-Ḥanbalī (d. 311h).

I highly advise people to download the free e-book from here. Or if anybody wishes to purchase the book can do so here.

May Allah reward the efforts of Shaykh Abu Eesa Niamatullah for making these gems available to the english speaking audience, and may Allah enable us all to benefit immensely from this work. Ameen

The vastness of Allah’s creation

The vastness of Allah’s creation






Antares is the 15th brightest star in the sky. It is more than 1000 light years away.

The nearest star to us is approx 4 light years away.

Calculation of a light year

A light year is 5,865,696,000,000 miles (9,460,800,000,000 kilometers).

Let’s say that a star is 1 million light years away. The light from that star has traveled at the speed of light to reach us. Therefore, it has taken the star’s light 1 million years to get here, and the light we are seeing was created 1 million years ago. So the star we are seeing is really how the star looked a million years ago, not how it looks today.

In the same way, our sun is 8 or so light minutes away. If the sun were to suddenly explode right now, we wouldn’t know about it for eight minutes because that is how long it would take for the light of the explosion to get here.

NOW is the Time to Learn Arabic!

NOW is the Time to Learn Arabic!

An excellent article by sister Amatullah in which she has collated information and resources essential for a student beginning on the path to learning the language of the Qur’an. Arabic.

She mentions the importance of learning the Arabic language by mentioning some verses of the Qur’an. She then talks about the method and the path the student of knowledge should pursue in this journey to understanding the beautiful language. She gives some handy tips and very good advice and the article is full of very useful and essential links of resources which will prove very useful for the student whilst embarking on this lengthy, yet rewarding journey.

We ask Allah to reward her well with good both in this world and in the hereafter, and that Allah gives her the ability to do more so that we may continue to benefit from the knowledge she imparts, inshaAllah. May Allah forgive us all and accept all of our deeds and make us all the companions of the Qur’an. Ameen.
