10 Reasons to Learn first 10 Verses of Surah Kahaf

Because Prophet (saws) asked us to… and he only asked us what he did himself. So consider it as a sunnah as well (not just the way of prophet (saw) but of so many companions, successors and so on…).

Do’s and Don’ts of mosque mannerism

I notice how these things can affect your whole mosque experience and how direly they need to change. Everything that you do is driven by one of two principles: to seek pleasure or to avoid pain. Link as much fear of Allah as you can to the behaviour that you want to end...
