Towards a Meaningful Life
Welcome! Join us on an exciting journey as we explore the beauty of true Islam. Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) urged his followers to hold firmly to two precious things to avoid being misguided – the Holy Quran and his Pure Household (as). 
 

Let’s partake of their rich treasures of wisdom as we travel towards:

  • True faith and good deeds
  • Enrichment of the soul
  • Inner Peace and Tranquility
  • A balanced life of love & peace
  • Our Ultimate Goal – Allah swt

Sayings of Imam Kazim a.s.

The moderate will never be needy. Moderation is half of the livelihood. Amicability is half of intelligence. Hastiness is the true clumsiness.

To make parents feel depressed is impiety to them.

God aids in as much as the need and endows with steadfastness as much as the misfortune. The graces will persist for the moderate and the satisfied. The graces will be removed from the immoderate.

The fulfilment of the trusts and honesty bring earnings, while treachery and fabrication cause poverty and hypocrisy.

Conviction is to depend upon God, submit to Him, consent to His acts, and entrust Him with the affairs.

Beware of indolence and laziness because they prevent you from receiving your shares of the pleasures of this world and the world to come.

Pearls for Peace Tranquility

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? 

Online Radicalisation Endangers Religious Harmony
Urgent Measures Needed to Protect our Youth

Today’s news of two young boys of age 15 and 16 years who were self radicalized through accessing some websites and gaming platforms is once again very alarming. Jaafari Muslim Association highly commends the vigilance and prompt action of our security forces in getting them captured prior to happening of any untoward incident. We also would like to convey to the youths to be cognizant of such websites and refrain from getting influenced with such deviated teachings. Islam does not allow to hurt or kill anyone. It is clearly mentioned in Al Quran that killing one person is tantamount to killing the entire humanity. In fact no religion in the world promotes human killing.

Parents should also play their role in keeping an eye on their kids and guide them to remain on right path. They should periodically talk to them on current affairs to listen to their thoughts.
Our religious leaders should also keep highlighting on such deviations in their lectures and in Friday sermons.

Jaafari Muslim Association strongly condemns all terrorist acts and will continue to play its role in the efforts for keeping religious harmony in Singapore.
