Significance of Sha’ban

Certain Islamic months hold a greater status as compared to others and due to this these months are rendered to be very valuable by the Muslims. The eighth month of the Islamic calendar, Sha'ban is an important month in the life of a believer. Sha'ban comes immediately before the month of Ramadan and serves as a connection between the two sacred months of Ramadan and Rajab.

There is a range of reasons why Sha'ban holds great importance in Islam and Islamic parenting and why it is an anticipated month by the community (Ummah).

Let us understand this importance and how this month can be favorable for every Muslim.

The Many Names of Allah According to the Quran - Part Three

Monotheism is the most important aspect of the Islamic faith. It is the very foundation upon which all of the religion's teachings are built. If one does not believe in a singular God, they cannot possibly consider themselves to be a Muslim, no matter how steadfastly they hold to other pieces of Islamic doctrine. Despite Islam's belief in a single God, the Quran uses a plethora of names to refer to Him. The most prominent of these names is, of course, Allah. However, most leading Islamic scholars point to an additional 99 names used to refer to Allah throughout the Quran and Hadith. In previous articles, we have discussed 50 of these names in detail. This article, the third in our series, will examine an additional 25 Names of Allah according to the Quran in an attempt to provide a definitive compilation and dissection of each. Let's get started!

The 99 Names of Allah: 51 - 75

The Many Names of Allah, Part Two

Islam is an Abrahamic religion, meaning it worships the single God worshipped by Abraham and his descendants. This monotheism is the cornerstone of the Islamic faith, with the oneness of Allah being stressed throughout the Quran and in the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad. But while Muslims praise only one God, they refer to Him by many names. In fact, most Islamic scholars agree that the Quran uses a total of 99 names to refer to Allah. Each of these names refers to a different aspect of Allah's character, allowing us to better understand everything He is capable of. This article is the second in a series dedicated to compiling and discussing all 99 of Allah's names at length. In the first installment, we discussed numbers 1 to 25. Today, we'll be examining another 25 names the Quran utilizes to help us comprehend the extent of Allah's glory.

The 99 Names of Allah: 26 - 50

What Is Colloquial Arabic?

Arabic is one of the most spoken languages in the world. It first emerged sometime between the first and fourth centuries and is today the national language of 26 states. However, an Arabic speaker cannot necessarily travel to any Arabic-speaking nation and be confident that they will be understood. This is because there are several different forms of Arabic, with words and phrases often varying wildly from category to category. There are two widely used forms of Arabic. These are Classical Arabic and Modern Standard Arabic. Classical Arabic - also referred to as "Quranic Arabic" - is the language in which the Quran is written, read, and recited. It is also the language in which most classic works of Arabic literature were written. Modern Standard Arabic, as its name suggests, is the language in which contemporary Arabic magazines, novels, movies, and textbooks are produced. It facilitates easy communication throughout the Arab world. Or, at least, it does in theory. Unfortunately, many Arabic speakers, particularly those in poorer regions of the Arab world, are not familiar with Modern Standard Arabic. Some are even unable to understand Classical Arabic beyond the confines of the Quran. Instead, they speak Colloquial Arabic exclusively. But what exactly is Colloquial Arabic and why is it so much more difficult to learn than Classical or Modern Standard Arabic? Let's find out.

10 Proofs Muhammad Was A Prophet

Islam rests upon two key beliefs. The first of these is belief in a single God, Allah, whose power and authority is completely unparalleled. The second is belief in Muhammad as Allah's final and greatest messenger. In order to become a Muslim, one must recite the Shahada. This is a declaration of acceptance of the two beliefs discussed above. If somebody has an issue with either, they cannot make the Shahada, meaning they cannot become a Muslim. Much has been written about the existence (or lack thereof) of Allah. Hundreds upon thousands of words have been produced claiming to either prove or disprove His existence. Less attention has been given to Muhammad. Unlike with many earlier prophets, secular historians agree that Muhammad certainly existed. But was Muhammad truly a prophet or was he the trouble making charlatan his rivals made him out to be? We, of course, hold steadfastly to the belief that Muhammad was the ultimate Messenger of Allah and that the Quran was revealed to him from the Heavens. In this article, we're going to be discussing just why we believe what we believe. Here are ten proofs Muhammad was a prophet.

Why Did Allah Choose Muhammad?

At the time of this writing, Islam boasts 1.8 billion followers throughout the world. That number is rapidly increasing. In just a couple of years, it will likely be in excess of 2 billion. Recent studies estimate Islam will have surpassed Christianity as the leading world religion by 2070, although we can expect it to happen much sooner than that. Islam is indeed an empire of faith. It is an empire so vast that it can sometimes be difficult to believe that it was founded by a single man. But, of course, it was. That man was Muhammad. A simple caravan trader in 7th century Mecca, Muhammad was already 40 years of age when he received the first revelation of what would become the Quran. He seemed an unlikely candidate for prophethood, yet it was he who was tasked with introducing the people of Mecca to monotheism. It was he who was tasked with restoring the faith of Abraham. It was he who was tasked with changing the world as we know it. But why did Allah decide Muhammad was the right man for the job? That's what we're going to figure out in this article. Read on to find out why Allah chose Muhammad to bring forth the Quran and establish Islam among His people.
