  • The Cambridge Dictionary defines experience as “(the process of getting) knowledge or skill which is obtained from doing, seeing or feeling things”.

  • The love of Ahlulbayt (as) and respect for their progeny, the Sadaat, is an obligation upon all Muslims. Allah states in the Quran: قُلْ لَا أَسْأَلُكُمْ عَلَيْهِ أَجْرًا إِلَّا الْمَوَدَّةَ فِي الْقُرْبَىٰ ۗ In this waqf, Imam Ali (as) mentions three categories of Sadaat: Quraysh, Bani Abdul Muttalib and Bani Fatimah, and he has allocated […]

  • If Musharraf deserves to be tried under Article 6 of the Constitution, TTP deserves to be hanged for rejecting the authority of the constitution outright. Instead, the Pakistani government is negotiating with them!

  • Until we confront the skeletons in our own closets, it will be far too easy for authors such as Hitchens to spew rubbish. We will have provided them with the resources to do so, and for people the world over to label Muslims as terrorists, because, unwittingly, we will have adorned ourselves with that label.

  • This article was written last year in answer to a question about taqlid.  First of all, I offer my felicitations to the Imam of our time on the birth anniversary of his father Imam Hasan Askari (as) and to all the believers.
