all praise is due to Allah who gave us the ability to use
our limbs for attaining His pleasure, and we ask Him to
make our deeds purely for Him, seeking His Face. May the
Prophet Muhammad be praised in the highest of heavens, and
may the peace of Allah be upon him.
is a historical fact that, for centuries, the Muslim Ummah
has been in a state of continual decline, primarily due to
its being distant from Allah and His Messenger, directly resulting
in the yearning for the Hereafter being replaced with the
love for the lowly life of this world and its glitter. Ignorance
about the message of the Qur`aan in the light of authentic
teachings of the Prophet Muhammad SAW, has been one of the
main causes for the appearance of discord amongst the Muslim
ranks. Ambiguity about the Islamic creed amongst Muslims,
leaving them powerless in the face of the onslaught of the
colonialists and the orientalists, has lead to the distortion
of many Islamic beliefs and concepts that the early Muslims
were nurtured upon, due to which Allah blessed them with victory
and honour in this world, and secured for them their stations
in Paradise in the Hereafter.
the turn of the 20th Century, the Muslims had reached such
a pitiful state that their ignorance of the religion caused
them to adopt other false man-made ideologies from the west,
such as secularism and nationalism, thinking thereby hoping
to follow them in their material advancements in order to
become 'progressive Muslims'. As expected, it only increased
them in their submission and subservience to the disbelieving
'international community' and the laws they hypocritically
make and break.
spite of these bleak realities, this Ummah has been, and will
always be a victorious Ummah, as long as there is a band of
men from among their ranks holding fast to the Book and the
Sunnah, striving and fighting solely in the cause of Allah.
will never cease to exist a band from my Ummah, fighting for
the decree of Allah over-powering their enemy, they will not
be harmed by those who oppose them, until the hour approaches
them and they are upon it (i.e. fighting for the truth)"
(Muslim), thus said the Messenger of Allah SAW.
praise be to Allah, that today we are witnessing this revival
of Islam in the hearts and lives of millions of Muslims, from
the west coast of the United States to as far afield as the
islands of Indonesia, who have been delivered from darkness
of their slumber to the light of the blessed Islamic awakening.
the Ummah as a whole was responsible for the deplorable level
that they had reached, similarly, it requires the effort and
sacrifice on the part of every Muslim to return themselves
to their former glory. This web site is a small effort and
a humble contribution on our part towards the global revival
of Islam. From the aims of this website are:
instil the true and comprehensive meaning of Tawheed in
the hearts of Muslims and highlight its practical implications
in their lives.
provide authentic knowledge and guidance with regards to
everyday duties Muslims offer to Allah, such as Salaah,
Zakaah, Sawm, Hajj, Dawah, Jihad etc.
bring the Muslims closer to the Sunnah of the Prophet SAW
and his companions as well as purifying their acts of worship
from all forms of innovation.
revive the abandoned and forgotten obligations without which
the victory to the Ummah remains impossible.
face the ideological onslaught waged on the Muslims by exposing
the doctrines of deviancy and disbelief, such as secularism,
socialism, democracy and nationalism.
preserve the true meanings of some of the important Islamic
concepts, such as 'Jihad', 'Commanding the Good
& Forbidding the Evil', 'Love and Hate for the
sake of Allah' from the unblessed scheme of the hypocrites
and disbelievers who are working tirelessly to redefine
Islam under the pretext of 'curbing religious extremism
help Muslims develop themselves spiritualy and make them
eager to reach the level of Ihsaan.
ask Allah to make our deeds purely for His sake, and to benefit
the Muslims from the ocean of knowledge present on IslamicAwakening.Com.
We make du'a to Allah for all those who have directly or indirectly
assisted us in this effort.
