We believe that a true and comprehensive understanding of Islam would not be possible without careful recognition of the Prophetic Tradition and the Prophet's Household. And Allah is the Source of Strength.

The Magic of Glorifying Allah

" Man bows down to anything more rich and powerful than him. You see around yourself, people, who treat their rich relatives differently than those relatives who are not that fortunate. Infact, as the saying goes, a poor man does not have any relative.

Similarly, man treats a poor on the street differently, and the boss of his company, differently. Man believes that cleaning the shoes of the rich will bring them into their good books and mercy.

Man fails to realize that being rich is a relative term. What good can money do to a rich who cannot rid himself of agonies like cancer?

If only man diverted his feeling of glorifying something superior in the right direction, with realization, he would certainly glorify Him, who gave him life, body, food and shelter. By God money can not buy things which destiny can.

When man has a pleasurable time, he forgets Allah. When he is in tribulations, he complaints to Allah. The right of Glorifying Allah is to thank him in your good times, and praise him in not-so-good times.

Allah not only deserves glorification, he returns it back to man multiplying his bounties.

If Yunus (AS) was not one of those who glorified Allah, he (AS) would have been kept in the stomach of the fish till the day everyone was raised from their graves. "
