In Search of a Meaningful Life
"I swear by the time. Most surely man is in loss, Except those who believe and do good, and enjoin on each other truth, and enjoin on each other patience." (Quran: Surah Asr)
About the Creator and Life on Earth
[Quran 10:3] Surely your Lord is Allah, Who created the heavens and the earth in six periods, and He is firm in power, regulating the affair, there is no intercessor except after His permission; this is Allah, your Lord, therefore serve Him; will you not then mind? [Quran 29:64] And this life of the world is nothing but a sport and a play; and as for the next abode, that most surely is the life - did they but know!
Our Creator and our Tests
In Surah 112, our Creator describes Himself thus: "Say: He, Allah, is One. Allah is He on Whom all depend. He begets not, nor is He begotten. And none is like Him". And He says that He will for sure test us (for us this world is an examination hall) Surah 2:155 & 156: "And We will most certainly try you with somewhat of fear and hunger and loss of property and lives and fruits; and give good news to the patient, Who, when a misfortune befalls them, say: Surely we are Allah's and to Him we shall surely return".

  • Inner Peace and Tranquility
  • Our Ultimate Goal – Allah swt

Is Life Too Stressful? Unbearable?

Where to find True Faith Wisdom Tranquility in a troubled world

Our troubled world presents a pitiful picture. Increasingly engulfed in misery and suffering, wars and terror, it reveals meaningless lives of vanities, devoid of morals and ethics, consumed by hectic materialistic pursuits, surrounded by injustice, inequalities and oppression. In the midst of this madness, however, one also finds an ocean full of the most beautiful pearls. Dive in and be transported to islands of inner peace and tranquility.

Cannot swim? Select a quiet corner/room in your home, designate it as the prayer place/sanctuary and spend just 5% to 10% of your time there each day in the company of  Allah swt and Ahlulbayt a.s. Make friends with the Glorious Quran and the two most magnificent books after that: Nahjul Balagha and Sahifa e Sajjadiyyah. And let them add value and enrich the entire day every day of your lives in a way that will amaze you to no end …… more

54 sublime supplications   from Imam Jaafar Sadiq (as)

15 Munajaat (whispered prayers) from Imam Jaafar Sadiq (as)

To whet appetites, here are  just 5 appetisers from one of the hundreds of mouth watering, soul nourishing, dishes gifted by the one whom friends and foes refer to as the Ornament of the Worshippers. Savour, act upon and be uplifted by these amazing recipes from Imam Zaynul Abedin’s (a.s.) famous dua Makarim al Akhlaq (Du`a # 20 in Sahifa ).

1. We are sdvised to pray for things that matter: strong faith (yaqeen), pure intention, best deeds:

“ O’Allah, bless Muhammad and his Household. Cause my faith to reach the most perfect faith, make my certainty the most excellent certainty, and take my intention to the best of intentions and my works to the best of works!”

2. Do not nullify your rewards through self-conceit:

“ O’Allah, make me worship Thee and corrupt not my worship with self-admiration! Let good flow out from my hands upon the people and efface it not by my making them feel obliged! Give me the highest moral traits and preserve me from vainglory!”

3. Long life at all costs? Better to die than serve shaitan:

“ O’Allah, let me live as long as my life is a free gift in obeying Thee, but if my life should become a pasture for Satan, seize me to Thyself before Thy hatred overtakes me or Thy wrath against me becomes firm!”

4. Pray for adornments and ornaments of a different kind:

“ O’Allah, adorn me with the adornment of the righteous, and clothe me in the ornaments of the god-fearing, through:

o spreading justice, restraining rage,

o quenching the flame of hate, bringing together the people of separation,

o correcting discord, spreading about good behaviour,

o covering faults, mildness of temper, lowering the wing,

o beauty of conduct, gravity of bearing,

o agreeableness in comportment, precedence in reaching excellence,

o preferring bounteousness, refraining from condemnation,

o bestowing bounty on the undeserving,

o speaking the truth, though it be painful!”

o making little of the good in my words and deeds, though it be much,

o and making much of the evil in my words and deeds,though it be little!

5. Pray for good in both worlds:

“ O’Allah, incite me to remember Thee in times of heedlessness, employ me in Thy obedience in days of disregard, open a smooth road for me to Thy love, and complete for me thereby the good of this world and the next!”

Has the time not come to come together and raise our hands in prayer to be brought out of darkness into light? 

Karbala: timeless inspiring ...an event like no other

After 1400 years the passion continues unabated

As soon as the moon of the month of Muharram is sighted, a deep transformation comes about in shias. A tinge of sadness is felt deep inside which intensifies with each day and pervades the entire being as the mourning climaxes on the day of Ashura on 10th of the month. Pre-occupation with mundane worldly matters has by now been subdued by a conscience that calls with intense passion towards spirituality and good deeds. Night after night, clad in black, all roads seem to lead to the mourning gatherings at Hussainyahs.  The trigger is the remembrance of severe atrocities against Imam Husain (a.s.) , the grandson of the Prophet (swt), and his family and companions for their refusal to allow the hijacking and distortion of Islam by the corrupt rulers.

The world-wide Open University of Imam Hussain (a)

Every year millions attend islamic lectures during the months of Muharram and Safar. Young and old, poor and rich, regardless of colour, race or gender, come in large numbers to attend the open, free of cost, classes at Husainiyas all over the world. They acquire knowledge that makes life meaningful. Quran, the last book of divine revelation, comes alive as they learn its true meaning from the school of the Prophet and his pure household. Lessons about how to worship Allah swt and surrender to His Will are taught on the basis of real life examples of the best role models the world has seen. 

These jewels are freely available on the internet. People of all religious faiths as well as atheists can now partake of this treasure from their computers and smartphones. A small selection of quality resources can be found in this website. For additional resources including free ebooks and multimedia, please refer to:  www.al-islam.org  

What Others Say

Mahatma Gandhi: “My faith is that the progress of Islam does not depend on the use of sword by its believers, but the result of the supreme sacrifice of Hussain (A.S.), the great saint”

Dr. Radha Krishnan: “Though Imam Hussain (A.S.) gave his life almost 1300 years ago, but his indestructible soul rules the hearts of people even today.”
