The work of the Muslim woman in the field of Da'wah (call to Islam) strengthens the man's work, and expands it into areas where her effectiveness supersedes that of the man. The woman's role does not end at door. She can be greatly effective by being a good example to others, by being good-hearted, kindly spoken, and of friendly conduct... More
From the very beginning of the Islamic history, Muslim women have played vital roles in the propagation of the Divine Message (Islam). From the sacrifices of Sumayyah, may Allaah be pleased with her, to the collected Ahadeeth [narrations of the Prophet, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam] of 'Aa'ishah, may Allaah be pleased with her, women have been instrumental..

Allah Almighty has promised victory for this Ummah (Muslim nation), even if it be after a long stretch of time. Unfortunately, the Ummah today is passing through a bitter state of division, discord and weakness, incurring regress and humiliation, so much so that the heart of any Muslim is painfully affected.

A contemporary commentator once observed that just as perversion has set in Western society, it has also taken root in Muslim society.

We decided go to the beach before sunrise to enjoy swimming before the beach became crowded and full of sights that can affect one's faith negatively.
However, this group of young men preceded us to the beach and when we reached there we found something completely unexpected. One of the young men met us, screaming, “He is drowning!”
This is a true story and I witnessed the events myself. I narrate it hoping that it may contain some lessons for whoever wants something that draws him near to Allah The Almighty.
Like other young men in secondary school, I was under the pressures of studies and getting good grades, so, I decided, with some of my good and righteous friends, to go.. More

How outstanding is the statement of the.. More
