What is self purification in Islam?Being patient and having conviction in Allah: Patience defeats lust and steps between us and our sins. It also keeps us steadfast on acts of obedience so self-purification (expelling and adorning) cannot be attained except by patience. Allah says, “Truly, those who persevere patiently will be requited without measure.'" ( 39:10). Having conviction in Allah keeps us steadfast in the face of our demons and with both these two qualities we can acquire the Imamate (leadership) in religion. Allah says, “We appointed leaders from among them, guiding by Our command when they were steadfast and when they had firm faith in Our signs." (, 32:24).Supplications: The weapon of the believer and the sanctuary of the human being to his Lord. It keeps us safe from all evils and it helps us to obey Allah. The Prophet (SAWS) used to pray, “O Allah, guide me to the best of manners, for none guides to them except You. Protect me from bad manners, for none can protect me except You.”

What if the Spark Dies?
Make a list of all the goals you want to achieve in Ramadan; and then ask yourself these four questions for every goal:a) Why do you want to accomplish this goal?b) How are you going to do this?c) What steps are you willing to take?d) When do you want to reach the goal?By doing this for every single goal, your planning is complete. Now, all you have to do is execute the same. Refine your intentions and do it for seeking the pleasure of Allah.

خواتین کا عالمی دن: اسلامی تناظر
چونکہ دنیا 8 مارچ کو خواتین کے عالمی دن کے طور پر مناتی ہے ، ہمیں اس معاملے کے سلسلے میں اسلام کے مقام پر غور کرنا ہوگا۔اسلام میں خواتین کے دن کی طرح کوئی چیز نہیں ہے ، تمام دن خواتین کا ہے کیونکہ وہ بھی مردوں سے ہے۔اللہ کے سامنے ہم اپنی حیثیت یا جنس سے قطع نظر برابر ہیں ، اللہ نے قرآن مجید میں کہا ہے: "لوگو ، ہم نے آپ کو تمام نر اور مادہ پیدا کیا اور آپ کو قومیں اور قبائل بنائے تاکہ آپ ایک دوسرے کو پہچانیں۔ خدا کے نزدیک تم میں سب سے زیادہ معزز تم میں سے سب سے زیادہ پرہیزگار ہے۔ خدا جاننے والا اور باخبر ہے۔

International Women’s Day: The Islamic Perspective
As the world celebrates 8th March as International Women's day, we have to reflect on the position of Islam with regard to this matter.In Islam there is nothing like women's day,all days belongs to women as they belong to men too.Before Allah we are equal regardless of our status or sex,Allah says in the (Quran 49:13)“People, We have created you all male and female and have made you nations and tribes so that you would recognize each other. The most honorable among you in the sight of God is the most pious of you. God is All-knowing and All-aware”.

Returning to Allah
Often times we think of tawbah as something we should do only after we have committed some huge sin. But tawbah is much more than that. It can simply mean redirecting our hearts towards Allah after they have been directed elsewhere, redirecting our energies to His worship or purifying our intentions for Him more frequently.

Najashi: The king who supported Muslim emigrants
It was a very critical moment. Jafar ibn Abi Taleb, the elder brother of Ali ibn Abi Taleb, who after embracing Islam escaped the prosecution of Makkans and led a delegation of over 80 emigrants to Habesha, was standing in the court of Christian King Najashi to defend Islam. He had full faith in Almighty Allah and so he spoke fearlessly.Muslim emigrants returned with Jafar to Madinah when the Prophet (peace be upon him) conquered Khyber. They thanked King Najashi for his good protection and hospitality provided to them. When King Najashi expired the Prophet (peace be upon him) offered his funeral prayer in absentia, in Madinah. He is buried at a place called Najash in Ethiopia.

What is the importance of intention?
What is the significance of intention in Islam (Niyyah) ?Niyyah in Islam holds great importance for every Muslim believer. This is because the value of a person’s actions is based upon his intention, motive or objective. The phrase ‘Fi Sabillilah’ is mentioned repeatedly in the Holy Quran, which translates as ‘in the way of ALLAH.’ This is used to serve as a warning for Muslims to ensure that whatever they intend to do should be in the way of God and not for the sake of anyone else, including their personal desires. Deviations from the straight path should be avoided at any cost as they do not bring benefit in any shape or form. Any devotional act performed without the sincerest of intentions is worthless in the eyes of Allah SWT. Niyyah is given the significance of a pillar of worship. This is due to the fact that any deed performed without intention or with an ungodly objective behind it shall not be accepted (batil). It is referred to in the Holy Quran that “Any believer who strives in the way of ALLAH, he will be guided by ALLAH on the right path.” The intention is like the prerequisite for the acceptance of deeds by Allah SWT.
