Assalamu Alaikum,

The Islamic Journal is a unique Journal in that it doesn’t follow the usual methods of other academic journals. It came about as a result of a book I was writing called “The Knowledge Behind The Terminology and Concepts in Tassawwuf and It’s Origin”, the title is as descriptive as possible because the book was written in the same style as classical islamic texts, a single document without any chapter’s since they were a later invention which hindered the flow of the book.

That book looked into the Islamic science of Ihsan, Human perfection, were it’s terminology and concepts came from, what they mean and the knowledge and science they were based on. I started researching the subject some five or so years ago and it resulted in a book whose current length is over 300,000 words, not counting research notes.

Towards the end of the book I realized that the scientific subjects, at the heart of Islam, needed to be looked into further because i had learned some interesting things which needed to be investigated, so the book was put on hold as i looked at more research papers to gain deeper knowledge.

The work was done entirely feesabililah, and because of that I wanted to share what I already understood rather than having it sitting their, so i decided to write a separate book with a smaller scope entitled “Who Was al Khidr”, the prophet Khidr (ra) was the perfect role model for the topic because his story in the Quran is the essence of what a muslim is trying to achieve. The book was about how man gains knowledge from the world around him through his physiology (mans body and senses), essentially how Maarifa (gnosis) works from it’s scientific aspects, a subject at the heart of this Journal but not it’s entire scope.

The original book was the heart of all my research and this second book represented it’s end product, but i felt it was to technical for many people so this resulted in me writing three introductory works on the subject to ease people into it’s context, the first was “Human Physiology and It’s Relationship To Baraka”, “What is The Unseen World and Where Is It: Explaining The Technical Terminology Of The Scholars”, and “How Is Allah The Light Of The Heavens and The Earth”.

Madinah Islamic Magazine

Madinah Islamic Magazine |01| (Pdf.Ver.1.0 | 16 Meg)

Assalamu Alaikum, the Madinah Islamic Magazine was created to share traditional Islamic knowledge from our heritage, from a time when Islam surpassed the world in it’s understanding and the fitnah (strife) of today didn’t exist.

The Magazine follows a simple structure outlined by Jibril (Gabriel) himself in the hadith of Jibril when He came to teach the Muslims about all the different areas of knowledge our religion entailed. He asked the prophet (saws) four simple question’s so the muslims could hear the prophets replies and understand what the Deen (Islam) was about. Hence each Issue of the Magazine will present articles, primarily taken from my website, SunnahMuakada.wordpress.com written by various scholars, as well as articles from myself regarding these four areas of Knowledge, and at times others.

‘Umar, may Allah be pleased with him, said, “While we were sitting with the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless with him and grant him peace, one day a man came up to us whose clothes were extremely white, whose hair was extremely black, upon whom traces of traveling could not be seen, and whom none of us knew, until he sat down close to the Prophet, may Allah bless with him and grant him peace, so that he rested his knees upon his knees and placed his two hands upon his thighs and said, ‘Muhammad, tell me about Islam.’

The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless with him and grant him peace, said, ‘Islam is that you witness that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and you establish the prayer, and you give the Zakat, and you fast Ramadan, and you perform the hajj of the House if you are able to take a way to it.’

He said, ‘You have told the truth,’ and we were amazed at him asking him and [then] telling him that he told the truth. He said, ‘Tell me about Iman.’ He said, ‘That you affirm Allah, His angels, His books, His messengers, and the Last Day, and that you affirm the Decree, the good of it and the bad of it.’ He said, ‘You have told the truth.’ He said, ‘Tell me about Ihsan.’ He said, ‘That you worship Allah as if you see Him, for if you don’t see Him then truly He sees you.’ He said, ‘Tell me about the Hour.’ He said, ‘The one asked about it knows no more than the one asking.’

He said, ‘Then tell me about its tokens.’ He said, ‘That the female slave should give birth to her mistress, and you see poor, naked, barefoot shepherds of sheep and goats competing in making tall buildings.’ He went away, and I remained some time. Then he asked, ‘Umar, do you know who the questioner was?’ I said, ‘Allah and His Messenger know best.’ He said, ‘He was Jibril who came to you to teach you your deen’.” (Muslim)

The Mawlid of the Prophet Muhammad (saws)

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

This video is about the History of the Mawlid, it’s fiqh rulings and the acts of ibadah (acts of worship) one should do on this day.

The Mawlid of the Prophet (saws) is the Mawlid of Islam!

This is the first video i have created, i will insha Allah be making more periodically.

Tasawwuf Established with Three Verses of the Quran and a Hadith

The Word Sufism is an english word, in our Deen we only use arabic to describe the Deen, the word in Arabic for Sufism is Tasawwuf, and the act you perform is called Tazkiyah an Nafs, purifying your self of evil and bad while promoting good qualities in your self, and what you try to achieve by it is Ihsan, Human Perfection.

1) Surah Shams, 91:9 Allah takes an oath in the Quran like no other and swears by the act of Tasawwuf, “Qad Aflaha man Zakaha” (Zakaha = Tazkiya an nafs), “He Who Purifies it succeeds”, This is talking about getting rid of your bad qualities, Tazkiya Nafs.

2) Surah Abbasa, 80:3 The Blind Man comes to the Prophet (saws) seeking Islam and the Prophet (saws) frowns upon Him as his attention is elsewhere, Allah responds by Saying, “Wama yudrika La-alahu Yazaka” (Yazaka = Tazkiyah an Nafs), “Yet for all thou didst know, [O Muhammad,] he might perhaps have grown in purity”, So in Surah al Shams Allah mentioned the first part of Tazkiyah an Nafs and that is Purifying your self of Evil, In Surah Abbasa he mentions the second part, learning and Promoting Good qualaties in your character and growing as a person.

3) Surah Ashurah, 26:88-89, Allah says, “The Day whereon neither wealth nor sons will avail, But only he (will prosper) that brings to Allah a sound heart”, “a heart free of sins and love for this worldly life” (Tanwir al miqbas Min Tafsir Ibn Abbas). You Have to know the Acts of Tazkiyah Nafs to Free your Heart from Sin and love for this Dunay (world), and Only One science in islam deals with this Subject in all of islams history and that is Tasawwuf, Fiqh does not cover Human Character and Psychology, it covers the Fiqh of Halal and Haram, how to actually change your self, the ullumah dealt with that in a different science of islam.

4) The most famous Hadith in all of Islam is the hadith of Jibril (hs), which occurred 86 days before the prophets (saws) death, it defines all the parts of Islam with out a Doubt, into Fiqh (Islam), Aqeedah (Iman), Ihsan (Tasawwuf) and the Sings of the Hour. Continue reading
