Walaikum As-salaam and Ramadan Mubarak to you too my dear sis .. and to dear sis Ruhi and dear brother TS and all your families.  Ramadan Mubarak, Ramadan Kareem to all our readers.

Love the Ramadan garden; absolutely mesmerizing .. simple and indescribably beautiful. 

Still better and the best, your Dua.  Ameen ya Rab.  Like I always say, every month of Ramadan we are able to make it to is a huge blessing from The Almighty.  We never know which Ramadan is the last one for whom.  Only Allah knows.  Yes! our souls need fasting as the physical body needs food.  Or as the Ramadan phrase says, empty your stomach to feed your soul.

Many thanks, shukriya, Sister Heba, for this post.  You're right, it's been so, so busy for me too.

As-salam Alaikum and Ramadan Mubarak dear all.

Ramadan 1, 1438  (May 27, 2017).

The Month of the Noble Quran:

"(It was) the month of Ramadan in which was revealed the Quran, a guidance for mankind and clear proofs for the guidance and the criterion (between right and wrong). ..." - Most Noble Quran 2:185.

Ramadan is about breaking bad habits.  Not putting them on pause. 
Do your best and Allah will do the rest.

Our souls need Fasting as much as our bodies need food

Thank YOU ALLAH, for providing us yet another opportunity to get to this blessed month so we can make efforts to receive more of YOUR Mercy and Bounty.  Please Dearest ALLAH, accept our fasts and our ibadah and help us to acquire a very good report in the Hereafter.  Ameen Ya ALLAH.

Preparation and start of Ramadan this year has really been busy for all of us :)   Sorry for the somewhat late announcement folks.

Shukran from me too dearie Sis Heba :)  These are precisely the points I was looking to confirm.  Yeah Sis Zeynab, it's particularly great to read in upcoming month of Ramadan;  that's why I needed to get some feedback because I hadn't read the entire dua earlier.

Many, many thanks dear Sis. 

I also enjoyed reading the complete dua in that link you provided.  Found it very comforting.  It's a very suitable read in Ramadan.

Good query Sister Ruhi.

Ameen ....

Walaikum As Salam dear Sis ..... and bundles of thanks for requesting Allah Almighty for His much needed blessings we humans are completely dependent on. 

I see it as a general supplication.  Dua Kumail  (دعاء كميل) is famous for the humble beauty of its words in obedience to Allah Almighty expressing one's love for Him.  A large portion of this dua is begging the forgiveness of Allah for our many sins. This dua is mainly popular in Shiia Islam;  many Sunnis also accept it.

The most important point is that this dua is Halal as it looks fully compatible with the principles of the Noble Quran. 

Dua Kumail literally means the supplication of Kumail.  Kumail bin Ziyad was reported to be a close friend, comrade and confidant of Imam Ali.  He had  risen into prominence for his loyalty to the Islamic government and his piety during the time of Ali's predecessor, Usman.

According to tradition (which isn't reliable) this supplication was originally said to be recited by the ancient Prophet Al-Khizar ( الخضر) and quoted by Kumail bin Ziyad .... from what I understand.  Though Khizar is not mentioned in the Quran by name, traditionalists have opined that Verse 18:65 of Surah Al-Kahf refers to Khizar who was a Prophet.  Only Allah knows best how far this information is accurate.

I quote Verse 18:65 below:

"Then found they one of Our slaves, unto whom We had given mercy from Us, and had taught him knowledge from Our presence."  (18:65).

I repeat, only Allah Almighty would know best if the reference is to a Prophet named al-Khizar or someone else. 

Thus, in conclusion, while some of those traditional aspects surrounding dua Kumail are not confirmed in the Quran, the contents of the supplication itself (as far as I know and understand) are in conformity with the principles of the Noble Quran.  Therefore I think it's fine to recite this supplication or join the congregation reciting it.  We need only to focus on the substance of the dua.

Excerpts from Dua Kumail in English are as follows

O He in whose hand is my forelock!

O He who knows my affliction and my misery!

O He who is aware of my poverty and indigence!

My Lord! My Lord! My Lord!

I ask You by Your Truth and Your Holiness

And the greatest of Your Attributes and Names,

That You make my times in the night and the day inhabited by Your remembrance,

And joined to Your service

And my deeds acceptable to You,

So that my deeds and my litanies may all be a single litany

And my occupation with Your service everlasting.


And protect me with Your mercy!

And make my tongue remember You without ceasing

And my heart enthralled by Your love!

And be gracious to me by answering me favorably,

And nullify my slips

And forgive my lapses!


O He, whose satisfaction is quickly achieved!

Forgive him who owns nothing but supplication

For You do what You will

O He whose Name is a remedy,

And whose remembrance is a cure,

And whose obedience is wealth!

Have mercy upon him whose main wealth is hopefulness
And whose weapon is weeping!

As-Salam Alaykom my dear peeps!  :)

I'm here with a question again which you just read on the title.

Can anyone kindly give some details on dua-e-kumail?  Is it a general supplication or one for a specific situation or event?   Would also appreciate if someone can share the English translation of this dua.  Plenty of thanks in advance. 

May Allah bless my MV team.

Thanks br. TS.  These folks are just appalling.  I too never knew of this Eid Mabath stuff ever before.  Revelation of the Quran began in Ramadan, confirmed by The Almighty.  They can say what they like, their arguments carry no weight.  If they shut-up they favor their own soul otherwise they will be answerable to HIM.

Walaikum As-Salam. 
Couple of weeks ago I came across a news story at Press TV with greetings on "Eid Ma'bath."  Honestly, until I read it I never knew what that meant.  Needless to say, it was yet another rude shock to know that Muslims now don't even believe that the revelation of the Noble Quran began in the month of Ramadan.  I'm pretty sure that to themselves the jurists do know that the Quran was revealed over a period of 23 years .. I mean who wouldn't know such a basic information of Islamic history.  Yet they pretend to disregard that fact to confuse the public.  The more you research, the more obvious it gets that the horde of interpolations are endless.  I don't know how these folks will answer to Allah Almighty on the Day of the Tryst about construction of stories galore without knowledge, proof nor evidence.

Thanks brother.  Very good work.  I hope this clears the confusion from the minds of at least some of the naive victims of our jurists who prefer to think and analyze before accepting the presumptions narrated to them.

As-Salam Alaykum and peace to all.  We are now into the Hijri month of Shaban, tonight being 9th Shaban 1438 (Gregorian calendar 5th May 2017).  As many of our readers would know, Shaban is the eighth month of the Islamic Hijri calendar, preceding Ramadan which is the ninth month.  Rajab is the seventh Hijri month which precedes Shaban.

Shiia jurists unanimously claim that prophethood  was appointed on the 27th of Rajab and the Quran began being revealed on the 27th of Rajab.  Though formally the Sunnis supposedly accept the Quranic confirmation that the Divine Revelation began in the month of Ramadan, yet they appear quite complacent over the Shiia claim of 27 Rajab.

To summarize a long story, the Shiia claim that the revelation of the Quran began on 27 Rajab is simply wrong and clashes with Quranic information.

"The month of Ramadan in which was revealed the Qur'an, a guidance for mankind, and clear proofs of the guidance, and the Criterion (of right and wrong). And whosoever of you is present, let him fast the month, ..."  (2:185).  Noble Quran.

When Allah has already stated in His Final Message that it was revealed in the month of Ramadan, what the is this so-called Eid  Mabath about?

"We swear by the Glorious Book that We revealed the Qur'an on a blessed night." (Surah al-Dukhan, 44:2-3 Noble Quran).

And that is the very night of Qadr (power) which has been mentioned in Surah al-Qadr, Chapter 97 (verse 1) wherein it has been said:

"Indeed! We revealed it on the Night of Power."   (97:1)  Noble Quran.

After the Quranic confirmation of Verse 2:185, one can be certain that the rest of the Verses do not refer to Rajab. 

Everyone knows that the entire Quran was revealed over a period of 23 years.  Verse 2:185 makes it ample clear that revelation of the Quran (Verses 96:1-5) began in Ramadan, which means Prophethood was formally bestowed on Muhammed (pbuh) on that day of Ramadan.  So why do traditionalists claim that revelation of the Quran began on 27 Rajab?  There are absolutely no references to the month of Rajab connected with the first revelations of the Quran.  In fact there no allusions to Rajab in the Quran at all.  Yet, the following is what a Shiia website writes referring to the first Quranic Verses 96:1-5:

According to the Shiia site Imam

' "Read in the name of thy Lord Who created, created man from a clot (of congealed blood): Read and thy Lord is most Bountiful, no taught with the pen, taught man that which he knew not. (Qur'an, 96:1-5)" These were the first ayats to be revealed, and the date was the 27th of Rajab, 40th year of elephant (610 C.E.).'

One needs to ask, on what basis do the Shiias assert that the date of revelation of Verses 96:1-5 was 27th Rajab?

The answer is that there's no basis.  It's just guesswork based on various ahadith, just the way there are other sorts of guesswork based on Sunni ahadith.  In this case, the Shiia jurists used Verses 44:2-3 of Surah At-Dukhan.  Quoting those jurists:

"The Holy Qur'an was revealed in one blessed night of the Holy month of Ramadan, which is called the 'Night of Glory', but they do not mention the place of its revelation and do not also denote that they were revealed to the Prophet during the same night. It is quite possible that there may have been various revelations of the Qur'an and numerous Shi'ah and Sunni narrations confirm this possibility. One of those revelations is the gradual revelation of the Qur'an to the Prophet and the other is its revelation in installments from the Lauhul Mehfuz  to Baytul Ma'mu'r.  Hence there should be nothing wrong in a few verses of Surah al-Alaq being revealed to the Holy Prophet on the 27th of Rajab and the entire Qur'an, in one compact form, being revealed in the month of Ramadan from a place named by the Qur'an as 'Lauhul Mehfuz' to another place 'Baytul Ma'mur.'

In short the verses which indicate that the Qur'an was revealed in the month of Ramadan during the 'Night of Glory' cannot be a proof of the fact that the day of the Holy Prophet's appointment to the prophetic mission, on which only a few verses were revealed, also coincided in the same month, because the aforesaid verses show that the entire Book (the Qur'an) was revealed in that month, whereas, on the day of the Holy Prophet's appointment to the prophetic mission only five or six verses were revealed."

Reading the above two paragraphs, you can gauge that Shiias manipulate matters in much the same style as the Sunnis, stealing stories from the Hadith and then mixing them with parts of Quranic information and further 'seasoning' those stories with unsupported presumptions. Apart from the fact that the above argument does not at all prove that 27 Rajab was the day, such tactics are totally unacceptable that display false twists about matters already confirmed in the Quran. These people don't even seem know that that the Quran was revealed over 23 years NOT during one night.  They cannot understand that the clear allusion in Verses 2:185 as well as 44:2-3 is the start of the revelation NOT start and finish.  The Quran was revealed to the Prophet (pbuh) who was a human being.  It wouldn't be possible for the Prophet to handle the revelation of 6,000 plus verses in one night.  That should be easy enough for any average person to understand.  Also in that case there would be no such thing as "Mecca and Medinah revelations."

One may also wonder what is Bayt al-Mamur which many might know to be another one of the many Hadith fabrications.  Lauhal Mahfuz (Guarded Tablet) is of course mentioned in the Quran  but NOT Bayt al-Mamur.  Bayt al-Mamur comes straight from the Hadith which claims it to be the Ka'ba in Jannat (directly above the Ka'ba on earth) and supposedly 70,000 Angels visit it everyday.  Some traditional stories go further claiming that those angels that visit Bayt al-Mamur never return.  The entire Bayt al-Mamur story is a construction of the human mind.  Not a word about it is contained in the Quran.

Eid Ma'bath is a traditional fabrication and one hundred percent extra-Quranic content.
