How to perform Salat ut-Tasbih (Prayer of Glorification of Allah)

Salatul Tasbih

Rasulullah ﷺ once said to his uncle Hadrat ‘Abbas رضی ٓاللہ عنہ : O Abbas! O my uncle! Shall I not give you a gift? Shall I not show you something by means of which Allah will forgive your sins, the first and the last of them, the past and recent, the unintentional and the intentional, the small and huge, the secret and open? Rasulullah ﷺ then taught him the Salah al-Tasbih. Furthermore he advised him that it be offered daily, if possible. If not then every Friday or once a month or once a  year or at least once in one’s life time. – (Abu Dawood)

This prayer consists of 4 rak’ah and should be performed everyday. Makruh times should be avoided for this salah. The Tasbih which is to be read in this prayer at different positions is as follows:

Subhanallahi wal hamdulillahi walaa ilaaha ilalahu walahu akbar

How to Track Down Anyone’s Email Address Using Your Gmail


The Muse logo

Most of us associate networking with industry events, shaking hands with a friend of a friend of a former co-worker, and grabbing coffee with someone you’d like to get to know better. But it’s 2015, and building a relationship can happen just as easily through email. And, yes, I’m talking about the slightly nerve-racking, but potentially very rewarding, act of sending cold emails to professionals you don’t personally know.

Taking the initiative to message influential people in your industry can reap huge benefits. You can ask for advice based on their career path, secure partnerships for your company or side project, or eventually even get a foot in the door with someone who works at your dream company.

No matter what your request is, however, there’s no way to make it unless you have this person’s email. That’s why I’ve used—and will share with you—the guess-and-verify strategy that has…

Non Muslim

On the day of Qiyamah,


You will rise with those u imitate!!

You will rise the way u died!!

Do u not fear الله???

As a muslim,u are bound to follow rules and regulations set down by الله and Shari’ah. If u dnt like it- الله says ‘there is no compulsion’‎.‎

‎It comes in a hadeeth .meaning is how you present yourself and carry out your daily activities will be your general outcome. If a person is engaged in Tilaawat of Quran daily and performs all Salah ( (صلاة) (صلاة))  etc and dies not get involved in sin then Inshallah that person will be risen from amongst those who were engaged in good actions. However if he did those actions for showing people that he is pious etc then Allahs Nabi (saw) has warned about the consequenses.

For Linda Ikeji: Wole Soyinka on Mukhtar Alexander Dan’Iyan (@MrAyeDee)


Pa Ikhide

Those following the Linda Ikeji saga will forever remember her adversary, who goes by the Twitter handle @MrAyeDee. His real name is Mukhtar Alex Dan’Iyan. My views about the whole episode may be summed up in this interview with 9jafeminista. I promised to share on Twitter Professor Wole Soyinka’s views of him; it is rather harsh, but is very important to understand the man that Linda Ikeji was up against. I have known Mukhtar since the early 90’s, first on Naijanet where I was the towncrier, and then as members of the Association of Nigerians Abroad, where I served as Secretary General, and then as adversaries and allies inside the pro-democracy movement.  I shall have more to say about those heady, exciting and dangerous times, indeed I felt it was necessary for folks on Twitter to know his real name, it wasn’t obvious that they did. I don’t regret…

The Harms of Shisha & Hookah

Maasha Allah. Jazaakallahu Khairan for the enlightenment.

Stand Up 4 Islam

Bismillah-hir Rahman-nir Raheem (in the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)

I know of many Muslims who are using shisha (also known as Hookah) and think there’s no harm in this. This is not the case and that’s probably because (to my knowledge) the scholars have not adequately promoted this issue – certainly I haven’t come across enough education on shisha. Shisha is the new social thing, men and women are doing it and children see this and also think there is nothing wrong. However this is a grave misunderstanding, and there is a ruling to say it is haraam (see bottom of post), and I’ll explain why. Please note that in the UK it is illegal to sell any tobacco products to anyone under 18 and this includes tobacco products for shisha pipes.

What is Shisha?

Shisha is basically a water pipe through which, fruit-scented herbs and spices (mixed with tobacco) is burnt using coal, and then this is…
