Dua for Taqwa

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ الْهُدَى وَالتُّقَى وَالْعَفَافَ وَالْغِنَى

[مسلم: الذكر والدعاء والتوبة والاستغفار 72 – (2721)]عن ابن مسعود.

    

اللَّهُمَّ آتِ نَفْسِي تَقْوَاهَا، وَزَكِّهَا أَنْتَ خَيْرُ مَنْ زَكَّاهَا، أَنْتَ وَلِيُّهَا وَمَوْلَاهَا

[مسلم: الذِّكْرِ وَالدُّعَاءِ وَالتَّوْبَةِ وَالِاسْتِغْفَارِ 73 – (2722)] عن زيد بن أرقم

The correct way to form an opinion

 There are two ways by which one could form an opinion about Islam:

The first one is to form an opinion about Islam by studying its (authentic) sources (namely, the Qur’an and Sunnah). The second way is to form opinions off personal experiences that are either based on incomplete information or on anti-Islamic propaganda. The first method is not only based upon the correct principles of investigation but also on the values of justice and fairness, which the second method lacks.

Unfortunately, it appears that most people have adopted the second way to form our opinions. Consequently, Islam, which (according to its authentic sources) is a religion of mercy, appears to be peace-averse when seen through poor investigation and mal-intended, anti-Islamic propaganda.

رائے قائم کرنے کا صحیح طریقہ

اسلام كےبارے ميں فيصله كرنے كے دو طريقے هيں۔

ايك يه كه اسلام كو اس كے اصل مآخذ سے معلوم كركے اس كے بارے ميں رائے قائم كي جائے۔ دوسرے يه كه اسلام كے مخالفين كے پروپگنڈے يا ادھوري معلومات پر مبني ذاتي تجزيه كو اسلام كےسلسلے ميں فيصله كے ليے بنيادي حيثيت دے دي جائے۔

پهلا طريقه اصولِ تحقيق اور عدل و انصاف پر مبني طريقه هے جب كه دوسرا طريقه مزاجِ علم  اور  عدل وانصاف دونوں سے خالي ۔

افسوس كي بات يه هے كه انسانوں كي اكثريت اسي دوسرے طريقه كو اپنائے هوئے نظر آتي هے۔ اور اسي كا نتيجه هے كه دينِ اسلام جو اپني اصل تعليمات كي روشني ميں دين ِ رحمت ثابت هوتا هے وهي اسلام اس غير علمي تحقيق وپروپگنڈه كے نتيجه ميں امن دشمن دين نظر آنے لگتا هے۔

Assalamu alaikum.

Recently, my blog and other websites were hacked. The admin, reluctantly, had to delete the whole website data and rebuild it, from scratch!

So, here I am, making a new start, and hoping to put some pieces of information regularly, especially, my durus in pdf form, so that those who deliver speeches may get some ready made topics and those who listen to durus from isalmiclectures.net can get the dars content in text form to understand the dars and learn the proofs.

I will be uploading the dars pdfs one by one on islamicpdfs.net in sha Allah.
