Remembrance of Allah
Dear scholars! I am wondering if I can make dhikr (remembrance of Allah) while relieving myself? Please enlighten me in this regard!
As-Salamu `alykum.Dear Scholars, something has been bothering me recently. What makes Muslims go astray? People have told me about practicing Muslims who had been performing their obligations such as prayer, fasting, etc., and then suddenly they came and said that they no longer believe in God.I also met a woman who said that she used to be a Muslim and became a Christian! That's why this is really bothering me. Now I fear this would happen to me! How can I protect myself from this? Are there any particular du`a’s I can read? Jazakallah Khayr
I have only been a Muslim for a few months and my question is about death. I have a great fear of death. My grandmother passed away on the 12th of this month and I am so afraid sometimes I can't sleep or I sleep with the light on.Sometimes, I am so afraid to even stay up alone in a certain area of my house and I’m afraid that I’m going to see her. Sometimes people have told me they have had visions of family members that have passed before, but that terrifies me. What is the Islamic ruling on this? Please help because sometimes I think I'm going to hurt myself because of this.When my father died, I couldn't sleep in the dark for about three months and his death was a horrible experience for me. This is actually how I get when someone close to me dies. I can't handle the sit uation. Please help! Jazakum Allah khayran.
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. I am a Muslimah who has committed many sins, due to sheer weakness. I have even been tricked in one instance which led to a sin so bad, I realized I had to change my ways. Do you think Allah will forgive me. Truly speaking I am feeling ashamed of myself, but I don’t know what to do. I don’t feel that asking for forgiveness is enough. So please respond to me telling me how to repent and what to do to be forgiven. Jazakum Allah khayran.
Dear scholars, As-Salaam `Alaykum. Would you please provide me with information about the refinement of the soul? Jazakum Allah khayran.
Dear sheikh, As-Salamu `alaykum. Is making dhikr (Allah’s Remembrance) in a group bid`ah (innovation in religion) or did the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) do so?
Dear scholars, As-salamu `alaykum. Why is there is so much fear of Allah? We should love Allah, not be scared of Him. Jazakum Allahu khayran.
May Allah bless you for clearly explaining Islam to us. Allah says: “Those who believe, and whose hearts find rest in the remembrance of Allah, verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest.” (Ar-R`ad: 28) What does the word ‘remembrance’ refer to? Is it the Qur’an, prayer, or merely remembering Allah’s Names and Attributes verbally?
