Moon Sighting


The first day of the month of Shawwal has been confirmed to be Monday, June 26, 2017


Join Presenter Muhammad Jawad Kassam and his esteemed guest Imran Damani as they discuss the blessed life of Lady Masooma Qom, the beloved sister of Imam Ridha.


Lady Fatima al-Masooma
Lady Fatima al-Masooma (peace be upon her) was born on 1 Dhil Qa'ada, 174 AH in the holy city of Medina. Her father was Imam Musa al-Kadhim (peace be upon him), and her mother was Lady Najmah. Not long after her birth, her father was martyred in the dungeons of Harun the Abbasid tyrant. After that, her brother Imam Ali ar-Ridha (peace be upon him) became her guardian. . .


Pride: A Barrier to Paradise!
Kibr (pride) necessitates entry into the Hellfire and prevents entry into Paradise. Allah - the Most High - informs us that the Hellfire is the abode of those who have kibr (pride and arrogance). And we learn from the (above) hadeeth that: "Whoever has an atom's worth of kibr (pride) in his heart will not enter Paradise.". . .


Women's Liberation Through Islam
Today people think that women are liberated in the West and that the women's liberation movement began in the 20th century. Actually, the women's liberation movement was not begun by women but was revealed by God to a man in the seventh century by the name of Muhammad (peace be upon him), who is known as the last Prophet of Islam. The Qur'an, the Traditions of the Prophet (Hadith or Sunnah), Bibi Fatimah (as) and the teachings of the 12 Imams are the sources from which every Muslim woman derives her rights and duties. . .

The Prophet (SAWA) said, 'On the night that I was taken on my Night-Journey [to the heavens], I passed by a group of people scratching their own faces with their nails, so I asked, 'O Gabriel, who are these people?' so he replied, 'These are people who backbit about other people and disparaged their reputations.'  Tanbih al-Khawatir, v. 1, p. 115
