One Of The Biggest Reasons For West Turning To Islam So Rapidly

Religion Islam is blessed and divine religion of Allah Almighty that has been spread through the prophecies of messengers for the establishment of truth. Islam holds high estimation because of its magnanimous vitalities as it is the mere religion of holding the assimilating capacity to appeal anyone with authenticity in the ever-changing phases of existence. Islam due to its exhilarating powers and affirmation has declared the only acceptable religion in sight of Allah. Quran says:

“Indeed, the religion in the sight of Allah is Islam. And those who were given the Scripture did not differ except after knowledge had come to them….” [Quran 3:19]

The only religion that has been targeted since start, people have mocked its teachings and grotesquely rendered the facts to propagate negativity regarding Islamic beliefs is Islam. These acts have strengthened after 9/11 on which West started a social war against all Muslims to declare them conservative and terrorist. Despite Islam-phobia the most wide spread religion after 9/11 attacks has become Islam and still people are converting to accept the Supremacy of God.

Islam Puts Other Religions in Shade

With the advent of technology, most of the people have laid this firm faith upon science and technology and believes its dominance in coming days. These types are of those people who are in pure whim neglecting the fact that science proves what has already quoted by the Exalted Rab Who has created and sustained these signs since creation until now. In His authentic book of miracles, He has made it clear that signs are for believers and to which idolaters will remain dumb and deaf.

“Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and earth, and the alternation of the night and the day, and the [great] ships which sail through the sea with that which benefits people…… directing of the winds and the clouds controlled between the heaven and the earth are signs for a people who use reason.” [Quran 2:164]

Islam has not spread by means of sword purview of Westerns claim but has spread because of authentic Quran, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) personality, and Sunnah that has diverted many non-Muslims and has propelled them to include his name in the most influential man on earth. Islam has spread because of the strong faith bearer worships, their positive attitude towards every aspect, universality of Islamic principles that are cohesive and consistent that is why approximately 40,000 Britains, 70,000 French nationalists and 100,000 Americans have embraced Islam in recent years that are irrefutable facts.

Reasons that Make Islam a Widespread Religion in No Time

Allah Almighty sent down His apostles for the establishment of truth through His scared words that has concealed in Divine Quran. Holy Quran is not first and last revelation as prior its revelation Allah sent three other books that encompasses the same teachings as encoded in Quran. The reason that has cemented Islam as fast growing religion exhibits the attributes that other religions lack for sure.

1. One True Authentic Religion

Islam undoubtedly is one true authentic religion of God, which is a guidance and source of Hidayah for all Muslims on earth. For Islam authenticity this alone reason is suffice that it is accepted and declared by Allah the glorified Lord. He has ordered the worshippers to enter in religion Islam in order to find peace and absolution. The followers of Rab are free from all ambiguous confusions of following fake lords (trinity) who cannot help yet are factory of satanic whispers. Quran says:

“They have certainly disbelieved who say, “Allah is the third of three.” And there is no god except one God. And if they do not desist from what they are saying, there will surely afflict the disbelievers among them a painful punishment. [Quran 5:73]

2. Eternal peace

Humans of today are succumbing to the fast and forward era where there is no time for self-analysis and contemplation. Religion has a gone word and satisfaction has at all disappeared from their pages of life-let. Psychology has estimated the rise in anxiety and despondencies increasing in self-inflicting crimes and suicides. Islam provides solution to these all ordeals and asks His followers to seek peace and satisfaction in Allah’s words. Allah is the creator of hearts and only Allah can soothe it. Quran says:

“Those who believe (in the Oneness of Allah – Islamic Monotheism), and whose hearts find rest in the remembrance of Allah, Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest.” [Quran 13:28]

3. Non Discriminatory Rules and Rights

The edifice of Islam has built upon Justice and equality. These two attributes have joined the five fundamental pillars of Islam together and discourages all those factors breeding discrimination in rights. To West, Muslims are conservative enough who dominates their female entities and keep them oppressed. In sight of Allah, the level of distinction is piety nor character and gender. Muslims men have advised to be fair and just to their wives following the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Islam has liberated women enough that most of the converted persons towards Islam are women mostly and their strong rationale for their conversion states:

“In Islam, we have the right to have property, we inherit, we keep our last names, and we don’t have to take our husbands identities. In Christianity, people just do not understand how the Bible sees women, and I think people really should be working into that, and see how Christians think of women. Muslim women had rights and they can own property and that stuff, Christians were debating if we had so.” [Naoual, Elkoubaiti (2006). Women and Conversion]

4. No Compulsion in Religion

Despite that, Allah has called religion Islam the acceptable yet He declares it part of one’s willingness to accept it or not. There is no compulsion in selection of religion hence the man has freed from all kinds of hardships. The significant pillars that are essence of Islamic dogmas and doctrines even exhibit some clauses that refrained from adopting its rituals in hard times Allah has clear narrative like:

“There is no compulsion in religion. Verily, the Right Path has become distinct from the wrong path.” [Quran 2:256]

The yearning of quest for truth helps Islam to pave its feet deep in the shores of people’s heart. Islam does not require reasons nor have any logics to persuade people towards Allah’s doctrines yet people of all races, creeds and nations accepted it as true religion. Islam is verily a religion of solace and peace and truth in the end prevails regardless of circumstances.





Is Islam in Favor of Female Education Or Against It?

Oppressed, subjugated, and inferior are the words that jolt one’s nerves when it comes to knowing the stature of women in Islam.Islam the religion of peace emphasizes keenly upon the acquisition of knowledge by abandoning gender discrimination. The daily reporting of banning women from education, casting votes, and school demolishing is a cultural perspective by some of the Islamic pseudo pundits who not at all represent Islam and Quran in many of their pursuit.

Western media has considered Taliban the epitome for Islamic representations and put every nitty-gritty detail as Quran and Allah’s commandments. These stereotypes have no concrete ground but are fluke rhymes that have associated with religion Islam by West and its media tarred every Muslim with the same brush. In sight of Allah, men and women both are equal as He says in divine Quran that elaborated the equality of males and females:

“O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted.” [Quran 49:13]

Islam and Education for Women

Education is one important edifice on which religion Islam has raised. The religion of peace has flourished back in 7th century because of knowledge. Allah has asked His worshippers to seek knowledge regardless of gender. There was a time of Jahiliya when women were the oppressed entity and were buried alive but Islam rejects that facade of ignorance by elevating the rituals bound to women and honored them with unprecedented rights. Islam granted them with the rights to knowledge acquisition, marrying someone of their choice, retaining their identity after marriage, rights to vote, divorce, owning property and civil/political engagements.

The Seeker and Oblivion are Not Same:

The significance and importance of education for women can be gauged from the verse of Quran in which Allah has unveiled clearly that the seeker of knowledge and the one who is oblivion are not on the same page in His sight. Pertaining to this Ayyah of Nobel Quran how can Islam ban women education or can be against of it?

“….Are those who know equal to those who do not know?” Only they will remember [who are] people of understanding.” [Quran 39:9]

Excerpts From the Era of Muhammad (PBUH)

There are few excerpts from the era of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), which shed light upon the importance of women education and refute the fake atrocities of Taliban, who are constantly rendering the image for rest of the world.

1. The first verse that had been revealed upon Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was regarding “Knowledge” which explicitly did not mean only “male knowledge.” After the death of Muhammad Hazrat Aisha (RA) was the mere source as knowledge portal. Men and women traveled in Arab peninsula to learn from her, as she was connoisseur and had information regarding all doctrines.

2. The following Hadith is the best proof that alone is suffice to perish the dogmas that mark Islam as conservative religion for females.

“Narrated Abu Musa Al-Ashari: The Prophet said, “He who has a slave-girl and teaches her good manners and improves her education and then manumits and marries her, will get a double reward; and any slave who observes Allah’s right and his master’s right will get a double reward.” [Sahih Bukhari]

3. Once the Arab women said to the Prophet (PBUH) that men are ahead of them in everything in response to which the prophet asked them to acquire knowledge as quoted in Hadith:

“Women said to the Holy Prophet (PBUH): ‘men have gone ahead of us (in terms of acquisition of knowledge). Therefore, appoint a special day for our benefit as well.’ The Holy Prophet (PBUH) fixed one day for them. He (PBUH) would meet them on that day, advise them and educate them about commandments of ALLAH Almighty. [Sahih Bukhari]

Excerpts from Modern World

Muslim society even negates all the stereotypes that has chained with religion Islam being against women education. The Taliban dominated society i.e. Afghanistan has women captain pilot who has defused the pigeonholes. The Muslim dominating society have half the population comprise of women and all are in the top fields be engineering, Arm core, medical which prevail the neutral image of Islam that Islam the only acceptable religion is in favor of women education. Women education is of high importance because she is the first institution to impart education to her kids onwards making them the best for the society.

Surmising that religion Islam has always been in favor of female education and all those who are saying that it has barricaded women from education acquisition are lurking in the lost labyrinth to which there exist no light at the end of tunnel except for contemplating the Quran teachings to revive their mindset as narrated in Hadith that:

“Allah Almighty makes the path to paradise easier for him who walks on it for getting Education.” [Sahih Muslim]



The Health Benefits Of Reciting Holy Quran

The Holy Quran is the last divine book that Allah revealed on our beloved Holy Prophet (PBUH)more than 1400 years ago. The Holy Quran is not only the book of blessing and virtues but also has many psychological effects on the person who recites this great book. The Holy Quran recitation has many positive effects on the health of a Muslim in terms of blood pressure, heart rate, and perceived level of stress. Perceived stress level is defined as the level of a stress in person that is enough that a person is stressful.

Inconclusive researchers:

Dutch researcher with the name of Vander Hoven conducted the research on this particular area but surprisingly he did not publish his results clearly. He only suggested, “Muslims who can read Arabic and who read the Holy Qur’an regularly can protect themselves from psychological diseases.” However, he does not provide any evidence or specific details about the actual effects of recitation of Quran on readers.

Yet another research:

In yet another research, Yucel Saleh says that, “There are statistical changes in body temperature and respiratory rate, but they are not significant enough to support the positive effects of prayer on physical well-being.” Again, he fails to report what were the actual results of his research and contents only on giving contradictory statements about the psychological benefits of Holy Quran.

A recent study:

Recently a study was carried out to investigate the abovementioned effects of Holy Quran. The purpose of this study was to do a comprehensive research on the subject because previous researches were not conclusive and they were low in quality. Summarizing the findings of this research, researcher describes that, “the current study found statistically significant changes of physiological conditions, and the study supports the hypothesis that prayer does have positive effects on physiology.”

Actual research:

This research was conducted in university of Salford, United Kingdom. In this study, 15 male and 15 female Muslim psychology students were included and study consisted of two parts. The first part was further divided into two conditions. In first conditions the heart rate, perceived stress level, and blood pressure of participants were checked before and after reading Holy Quran. In the second condition, same factors were checked before and after reading a non-religious book in an Arabic text.

The order of the experiment was also quite interesting. Half of the students read Holy Quran first followed by the other book. Similarly, the other contingent read non-religious book first and then studied Holy Quran.

Results obtained from the study:

Results were concluded after using two widely used methods that are post hoc t-tests and Anova. Surprisingly enough, researchers found that blood pressure, heart rate and perceived stress levels of students dropped after reciting holy Quran. On the contrary, no significant change was noticed in students after they read the other book.

The second part of the study:

In the second part of the research, experts interviewed the students about their subjective experience of reading the Holy Quran. All of the students responded that the Holy Quran has brought a positive change in their lifestyle and it educates the people to live a better and sin free life. Most importantly, it reminds them about their faith that is Islam and takes them to their Creator and also relaxes them physically and mentally.

In the end of the study, researchers concluded that recitation of Holy Quran is seemingly beneficial both for psychological and physical well being of any individual. It can reduce perceived stress levels alongside reducing blood pressures and keeping heart rate under control.



Who Are Gog and Magog In The Light Of Quran


Quran has spoken all about what has passed and what will happen in the future up till the Day of Judgment. Quran has said something directly, while about others it has spoken in a discreet way and has left it to the understanding of the readers whether they perceive it literally or figuratively.


One such matter related to the signs of the End of Days is the arrival of Gog and Magog. Different scholars and critics view the Islamic addressing of Gog and Magog differently. This writing will focus on the figurative interpretation of Gog and Magog as per their mention in Quran.

In Quran it is said about Gog and Magog:

“He said: “This (wall) is a mercy from my Lord: but when the warning of my Lord comes to pass, He will reduce it to dust (and Gog and Magog would thus be released into the world); and the promise of my Lord is true.” (18:98)

From this ayah the figurative interpretation about Gog and Magog can be made that they are a group, who near the time of end of days will successfully penetrate into each and every part of the world.

The other mention of Gog and Magog in Quran is:

“But there is a ban on a town which We have destroyed: that they (the people of the town) shall not return (to reclaim that town as their own); until Gog and Magog are let through (their barrier), and they swiftly spread out in every direction (replicating themselves amongst all the peoples of the world).” (21:95-96)

As per this ayah, the people of a certain town who were exiled from it will try to reclaim the town and the only way they will succeed in doing so would be when they have the support of Gog and Magog, who by then would have spread all across the world and would have become a part of the people of the world.

From these verses, three major points can be extracted related to Gog and Magog;

  • They will rule the whole world
  • They will inflict injustice and suffering on the ones who are righteous
  • They will be very eager to reclaim the Lost Land

If all these points are to be found in some group or a coalition, then it is to be found in Jew Christian coalition or the new world order formed by the west. An explanation of the argument is given below.

If the world be analyzed at this point of time, then there is only one group of nations that is dominating the whole world in terms of politics, in terms of economics, culture, sports, entertainment, media and fashion and so on. At this point of time, there is no other power that can stand equal or above the current western, or Jew Christian combined civilization. They have penetrated to each and every part of the world and even to the deepest level of in the house of everybody. These groups on their own can cause economic recession, make countries fight with each other, destroy or build new things and so on. The world has never been under the control or rule of a single authority till now. Thus, the Judeo-Christian civilization has completely conquered the world and rules it willfully.

When it comes to infliction of pain and suffering to the world the suffering that is there in Africa, Asia in general and Arab world in particular has never been there before. Just after the coalition of Jews and Christians, now we see their dominance everywhere. Somewhere the bring suffering by shrinking the economy of that country, or else the conventional war method is always there. The coalition works on the philosophy of not letting any of the oppressed nations to rise; rather they want them to stay under the oppression and sufferings as much as they can.

The most important factor regarding which the Coalition has been strict and passionate from day one is the liberation of the Holy Land. For this very purpose the Christians started the crusades which longed for over a thousand years, and finally ended in the year 1917 when the British Army entered Jerusalem. Since then, Israel has become the apple of the eye of western countries, and they are doing their best to make it stronger and dominant in world.

Thus, these three aspects of the Judeo-Christian coalition verify the aspects mentioned in Quran, and in figurative interpretation of the verses, this coalition can be called the Gog and Magog.

However, the coalition being regarded as Gog and Magog is totally an interpretation of the meanings, the real knowledge about the phenomenon only lies with Allah Almighty.

May Allah Almighty save us from the evil of Gog and Magog and let us be on the side of Truth and Justice when the time comes. Ameen!


Most Effective Tips Pertaining To Memorization Of Holy Quran


Quran is the greatest gift of Allah Almighty to the human race. By developing an affiliation with Quran, a Muslim is able to understand the instructions from Allah Almighty and find the right path to live life and be among those who are under the blessings of Allah Almighty in this world and in the world hereafter.

Pertaining to association with Quran, Muslim associate with it in different ways, some recite it, some study it with meaning, while there are others that go beyond everyone else and learn to memorize Quran. Therefore, for every type of affiliation, Muslims opt for a respective way. The lines below discuss the major and most effective tips that can help in memorizing Quran in the most effective manner.

Quran Memorization:

Memorizing Quran involves both mind and heart. When both of them work in combination, only then can one memorize Quran. The mind incorporates the techniques, while the heart brings the reverence for memorization. The major factors required for effective memorization of Quran are as follows:

Sincerity- The first factor that needs to be present in order to effectively memorize Quran is sincerity. When you are sincere about memorizing Quran, only then will you be able to pay full attention to the lessons and consequently you will memorize it. You need to sincerely believe that Quran is the word of Allah, and your attempt of memorizing it is nothing but an effort to seek blessings of Allah Almighty. When you have such sincere intentions, your heart keeps you motivated towards the efforts required for memorization of Quran.

Consistency- The other major factor without which learning or memorization of anything is impossible, let alone Quran memorization is consistency. If you aren’t consistent, you won’t be able to memorize anything. Therefore, in order to memorize Quran you have to be consistent with your approach and take new and revise the old lessons regularly. The more consistent you are the better will you memorize and move forward in your Quran lessons.

Timings- Further to the factor of consistency, you need to allocate a special time or different times in the day for memorization of Quran. Therefore, regardless of whether you memorize Quran in the morning, in evening or after every prayer, you need to make sure that that particular time is only dedicated to Quran memorization and on daily basis. Hence, before committing to any Quran memorization time frame, sit for a while and see the time that is best for it in your routine, and then give that time to Quran memorization only.

Familiarity- When it comes to memorization of Holy Quran, you need have a particular Mushaf to familiarize yourself with the images of Quran. The using of a single Mushaf ensures that the memorization is assisted with pictorial memory, thus helping you in better memorization of Quran.

Atmosphere- Another important thing pertaining to memorization of Quran is the atmosphere in which you memorize Quran. In order to memorize Quran, you need to memorize it at a place that is secluded and where all your attention is on Quran and nothing is there to divert your attention.

Repetition- There is no magic trick for memorization of Quran, therefore, all you have to do in order to memorize it is keep on repeating your lesson, and once you move to the next lesson, memorize it along with the previous lesson. Therefore, there is no shortcut in memorization and you have to work hard and keep on repeating your lessons.

Meanings- Another thing that can help in better memorization of Quran is memorizing it with the help of meanings. For an Arabic speaker, memorization is easy because he/she is familiar with the meanings of words. Therefore, for a non-Arab speaker, the best way of memorizing Quran is by understand the meaning of words that are being memorized.

Listening Recitation- Besides giving special time to the memorization lesson, another tip that can effectively help in memorization of Quran is listening to the recitation of the lesson, which you are trying to memorize. When you keep on listening the same ayahs over and over again, it is quite natural that you will start memorizing it. Therefore, have the recitation of verses recorded in your iPod and keep on listening them.

Find A Partner- Another good way of memorizing Quran is by finding a partner with whom you can memorize Quran. You and the partner can both help out each other by having the other person listen to your recitation, thus this way you both can memorize your lesson daily. Hence, find a partner and memorize with him.

Recitation in Prayer- The most effective way of utilizing your memorized lesson is by reciting it during the prayers. You have to recite some part of Quran during the prayer, therefore, what better option can be there then to recite the lesson during the prayer, thus helping you in performing prayer and memorizing the Quran at the same time.


In short, memorization of Quran is one of the biggest honors that a Muslim can have; therefore, following the aforementioned tips can help a Muslim in this Holy cause.

May Allah Almighty give us all the chance of memorizing Quran as much as possible. Ameen!!



Islamic Duas Every Muslim Must Memorize and Recite Daily


One of the major elements of a Muslim conduct is the making of Dua or supplicating. Besides the general…of the major elements of a Muslim conduct is the making of Dua or supplicating. Besides the general and major events like Eid, Funeral, Fasting, Marriage, etc, Islam stresses upon Muslims to supplicate for even the most trivial of matters. Therefore, practicing Muslims supplicate to Allah Almighty even for the simplest of matters in every day routine.

Although the ordinary tasks in the daily routine can be undertaken without supplication, supplicating shows the belief of a Muslim and represents the fact that even for the most trivial of things, a believer turns towards Allah Almighty for seeking His blessings and help.

How to Supplicate

When it comes to making Dua or supplication, there are a few things that a Muslim must keep in mind for better supplication. The first thing to keep in mind is the intent – the intention behind making Dua must be to invoke to Allah Almighty with utmost sincerity and purity of heart. The second thing that is not compulsory but should be remembered is that a person must memorize the Arabic version of the supplication so that it shows the true spirit of religious inclination. If you are someone who cannot read the Arabic or Quranic verses, you are recommended to learn it with the help of Professional Quran Tutors Online.

Common Duas

The objective of this post is to help Muslims in knowing about the daily Duas, which they must memorize and recite on daily basis related to particular actions, and activities. Proceed further to educate yourself with these supplications:

When In Anger:

In the stressful and highly competitive life of today, the one issue that almost every one of us faces pertaining to our conduct is anger. Everyone of us undergoes anger at one point or another during the day. The anger of ours leads to clouding our judgment and the consequent decisions we make end up hurting someone or making a decision that is a total loss. Therefore, for everyone in general and Muslims in particular, it is imperative to avoid anger, and one of the best way of doing so can be by reciting Dua. Pertaining to Dua for avoiding and controlling anger, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) told of the Dua in one of His hadith in the following way:

If a person reads (this) when he is angry, then his anger shall go away.

اَعُوْذُ بِاللهِ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيْمِ

Transliteration – A’oozu Bil’laahi Minash Shaitaanir Rajeem

Translation– “I seek refuge in Al’laah from Shaitaan the cursed” [Tirmizi Shareef Vol.2 Pg.183].

From this hadith it becomes evident that being in the state of anger is being under the influence of Satan. Therefore, when it comes to avoiding Satan or controlling his induced temptations, there is no better refuge than Allah Almighty. Hence, whenever in anger, a Muslim must recite this Dua and seek the help of Allah Almighty.

Before And After Meal:

Another important and regular activity done in daily routine is taking of meal. Usually across the globe people have three meals, however, there are areas in the world where people face hunger and don’t have regular meals available for providing nutrition to the body. Therefore, the provision of meals during the day is one of the greatest blessings of Allah Almighty and for such blessing a Muslim ought to be thankful to Allah the Merciful. When it comes to Dua pertaining to meals, there is a Dua that a Muslim must recite before the meal and a Dua which must be recited after the meal. The Duas to recite in this regard are as follows:

Dua before the meal is:

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيْمِ

Transliteration – Bismil laahir Rahmaanir Raheem”
Translation – “
Al’laah’s Name we begin with, The Compassionate, Most Merciful.

When finished with eating, a Muslim must recite the following Dua:

اَ لْحَمْدُ للهِ الَّذِىْ اَطْعَمَنَا وَسَقَاناَ وَجَعَلَناَ مِنَ الْمُسْلِمِيْنَ 

Transliteration – Alhumdu lil laahil Lazee At’amana Wa Saqaana Wa Ja’alana Minal Muslimeen”.

Translation – “All Praise is due to Al’laah, who has blessed us with food and drink and made us from amongst the Believers (Muslims)”[Abu Dawood Pg.573]

The essence of both of these Duas is of thanking Allah Almighty for all the Mercy and Blessings He has bestowed upon Muslims in the form of meal.

<h style=”color: black;”>Entering And Exiting Masjid:

Another regular activity that Muslims perform on daily basis is going to Masjid for prayers five times a day. Islam has put great stress on five times a day prayers in general and saying the prayers in the mosque in particular. Therefore, a practicing Muslim enters and exits a mosques five times a day where he submits to Allah Almighty and indulges in His prayer. Therefore, it is imperative that a Muslim knows and understands the importance of being in the mosque and recites particular Duas on respective actions.

Dua before entering the mosque is:

اللّهُـمَّ افْتَـحْ لي أَبْوابَ رَحْمَتـِك

Transliteration – Allaahum-maf-Tahlee Abwaaba Rahmatika”.

Translation – O Allaah, open the doors of Your Mercy for me.” [

Sahi’h Muslim]

After prayer when a person exits Masjid, the following Dua should be recited:

اللّهُـمَّ إِنّـي أَسْأَلُكَ مِـنْ فَضْـلِك

Transliteration – Allaahum-ma In-nee As`aluka Min Fadhlika”.
Translation – “
O Allaah, I seek of You Your Grace.” [Sahi’h Muslim]

Thus when entering and exiting mosque, a Muslim must ask for the Mercy and Grace of Allah Almighty.

When Sneezing:

Although most of the activities undertaken by us in our daily routine are intentional, however, there are few unintentional things as well that happen to us every day. One of such things is the act of sneezing. The frequency of sneezing varies from person to person according to their nature and the condition they are in, regardless of whatever the reason be, the revival of breath after a sneeze is also a blessing of Allah Almighty and a Muslim ought to say thanks for it. Moreover, besides the person who sneezes, the other person who witnesses the sneeze must also respond to the Dua made by the sneezer. The person who sneezes must recite the following Dua:

 الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ

Transliteration – “Alhamdulillah”!

Translation – Thanks and all praise be to Allah

The person who listens to the sneeze and witnesses the other person reciting the Dua after sneezing, should say the following:

 يَرْحَمُكَ اللَّهُ

Transliteration – Yar Hamoo kall Lah”.
Translation – “
May Allah have mercy on you.” [Bukhari ,Mishkaat Shareef Pg.405]

Entering And Leaving Home:

Home is the base of a person from which a person exits to search and earn the blessings of Allah Almighty and it is a place where after the long day a person returns and shares those blessings with the family members. Therefore, it is imperative that a Muslim realizes the importance of leaving the home and then entering it.

The Noble Prophet (Salla Allahu ta’ala ‘alayhi wa Sallam) said, whoso ever recites this dua before leaving his home, all his difficulties will go away and he shall be protected from the mischief of his enemies and shaitaan will stay away from him:

بِسْمِ اللهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلىَ اللهِ وَلاَ حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّةَ اِلاَّ بِاللهِ ط

Transliteration – Bismil laahi Tawak’kaltu Alal laahi Wa Laa Hawla Wa Laa Quw’wata il’la bil’laah

Translation – Al’laah’s Name we begin with, I place my (full) trust in Al’laah and there is no Might and Power except with Al’laah.” [Tirmizi Shareef Vol.2 Pg.180]

When entering home, a Muslim must recite the following Dua:

بِسْـمِ اللهِ وَلَجْنـا، وَبِسْـمِ اللهِ خَـرَجْنـا، وَعَلـى رَبِّنـا تَوَكّلْـنا

Transliteration – Bismillaahi walajnaa, wa bismillaahi kharajnaa, wa ‘alaaRabblnaa tawakkalnaa”

Translation – In the Name of Allah we enter, in the Name of Allah we

leave, and upon our Lord we depend [then say As-Salaamu ‘Alaykum to those present].” [Abu Dau’d]

When Feeling Stressed:

Due to all the competition and hard struggle during the day, it is quite natural that people become stressed. It is this stress that sometimes takes the shape of anger while in other times it causes depression, both of which are not favorable, hence it is imperative that a Muslim keeps control when under stress of pressure.  Pertaining to facing any discomfort or being unhappy about something, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) used to recite the following Dua:

لآَ اِلَهَ اِلاَّ اللهُ الْحَلِيْمُ الْحَكِيْمُ لآَ اِلَهَ اِلاَّ اللهُ رَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيْم

لآَ اِلَهَ اِلاَّ اللهُ رَبُّ السَّمَاوَاتَ وَاْلاَرْضِ وَرَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْكَرِيْمِ ط

Transliteration – Laa ilaaha il’lal laahul Haleemul Hakeemu – Laa ilaaha il’lal laahu

Rab’bul Arshil Azeem – Laa ilaaha il’lal laahu Rab’bus Samawaati wal Ardi wa Rab’bul Arshil Kareem”.

Translation – “There is none worthy of worship except Al’laah, The Fore-bearing,

The All Wise. There is none worthy of worship except Al’laah, The Lord of the Exalted Throne. There is none worthy of worship except Al’laah, The Lord of the Skies and The Lord of the Earth and the Lord of the distinguished Throne”.[Tirmidhi Vol.2 Pg. 181]

This Dua under stress shows the submissiveness of a person to the Authority and Supremacy of Allah Almighty, which represents the ideology that only He is the one Who can provide relief or assistance during stressful and discomforting situations.

While Traveling:

Traveling is also an activity, which people undertake on daily basis. No matter how small a distance is or whatever means of traveling is to be adopted, there is always a concern of safety with traveling. Therefore, it is imperative that a person asks for the protection and safety of Allah Almighty.

سُبْحَنَ الَّذِىْ سَخَّرَلَنَا هَذَا وَ مَا كُنَّا لَهُ مُقْرِنِيْنْ وَ اِنَّا اِلَى رَبِّنَا لَمُنْقَلِبُوْنْ

Bottom Line:

In short, there are a variety of activities that a person undertakes in the daily routine. No matter whichever activity is undertaken, it is imperative that the help and blessings of Allah Almighty be asked for it and if there is a proper Dua available for it, then it must be memorized and recited while performing the activity.
