its annoying that you randomly stop posting for days. why????

Because we’re human beings. We’re meant to be doing much greater things than spending our days posting stuff on here that literally no one cares about. To not say/look at things that may very well be the cause of our failure in this life and the next. Instead of messaging me, go pray or read a book; do things that actually matter. Your time is much more valuable than you make it out to be.

Salaam. Your blog is amazing, totally inspirational MashaAllah:)) I have an urgent question that I hope you can help me with! I teach at a school where i am the only Muslim (the rest are Christian who have little with some having no understanding of Islam). There will be an interfaith gathering and i have finally been given the opportunity to recite an islamic dua. Which dua would you suggest? I was thinking Surah Fatiha and the translation? Please help! JazakAllah and may He always guide you :)

Wa alaikum assalam and thank you for your kind words :)

I hope I’m not too late in replying to this. Surat al-Fatihah would be great, but since you’re a teacher, maybe you can recite Surat al-`Alaq.

Children are born believers in God, academic claims

Dr Justin Barrett, a senior researcher at the University of Oxford’s Centre for Anthropology and Mind, claims that young people have a predisposition to believe in a supreme being because they assume that everything in the world was created with a purpose.

He says that young children have faith even when they have not been taught about it by family or at school, and argues that even those raised alone on a desert island would come to believe in God.

"The preponderance of scientific evidence for the past 10 years or so has shown that a lot more seems to be built into the natural development of children’s minds than we once thought, including a predisposition to see the natural world as designed and purposeful and that some kind of intelligent being is behind that purpose," he told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.

"If we threw a handful on an island and they raised themselves I think they would believe in God."

In a lecture to be given at the University of Cambridge’s Faraday Institute on Tuesday, Dr Barrett will cite psychological experiments carried out on children that he says show they instinctively believe that almost everything has been designed with a specific purpose.

In one study, six and seven-year-olds who were asked why the first bird existed replied “to make nice music” and “because it makes the world look nice”. Another experiment on 12-month-old babies suggested that they were surprised by a film in which a rolling ball apparently created a neat stack of blocks from a disordered heap.

Dr Barrett said there is evidence that even by the age of four, children understand that although some objects are made by humans, the natural world is different.

He added that this means children are more likely to believe in creationism rather than evolution, despite what they may be told by parents or teachers.

Dr Barrett claimed anthropologists have found that in some cultures children believe in God even when religious teachings are withheld from them.

"Children’s normally and naturally developing minds make them prone to believe in divine creation and intelligent design. In contrast, evolution is unnatural for human minds; relatively difficult to believe."

A recurring question that I get is, “where is the help of God?/I’m doubting my faith/why do bad things happen to good people?”

Can I do a tinychat trying to address these questions? Like would yall be interested?

salaam ammar, when we give charity is it okay to do in front of people like at a fundraiser? i thought we are supposed to keep our good deeds hidden?

Wa alaikum assalam

Because sincerity is the most important aspect of any act, Islam places a great emphasis and reward on giving charity in secret. Allāh (swt) says, “If you disclose (acts of) charity, it is good; but if you conceal them and give them to the poor, it is better for you…” Quran [2:271]

RasoolAllāh (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said that one of the seven groups of people that will be granted shade on a day that there is no shade except the shade of Allah’s throne, is “a man (or woman) who gives charity and hides it, such that his left hand does not know what his right hand has given…” [Bukhari, Muslim]

However, we’re taught that Allāh (swt) wants us to do good publicly as well—while maintaining sincerity—in order that we may encourage others towards good as well.

Allāh (swt) says, “Those who (in charity) spend their wealth by night and by day, secretly and publicly - they will have their reward with their Lord. And no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve.” Quran [2:274]

So we do both, while also making sure our intentions are always pure.

And Allah knows best. May He increase us in generosity and sincerity.

Lol I told my mom how some aunty added me on facebook but I didn’t accept her cuz I didnt want her knowing all my business, and she said “bohot acha kare (you did very good)”
