January 04, 2020, 01:14:24 am Heba E. Husseyn: Martyrdom is the highest level of victory, higher than battlefield victory.  Inna Lilahey wa Inna Elahe Rajoon.  May The Almighty grant the pious general a wonderful welcome in Jannah. Ameen.
January 03, 2020, 02:30:43 pm N. Truth Seeker: One of the saddest days in modern history.   Cry  May Allah grant peace to the martyr and patience to the bereaved, ameen.
January 03, 2020, 02:28:37 pm Zeynab: Muslim Villa prays for the departed soul of the great martyr Gen. Qassem Solemani of Iran at the hands of the cold-blooded murderers of Washington DC.  May Allah The Almighty grant our dear brother Solemani the highest spot in Paradise.  Ameen.
May 30, 2019, 06:15:49 am Zeynab: Alhudulilah, yes sister Ruhi.  Time flies in this fleeting world.  May Allah The Almighty accept our hard work in the permanent world.  That's the real success.
May 30, 2019, 03:43:58 am Ruhi_Rose: Jumaa-tul-widaa (farewell to Ramadan) tomorrow Friday 31.  How time flies!  Ya Allah, keep us close to Your mercy.

 BismEm



The Arabian society before Islam was not atheistic  that denied the existence of Allaah, neither were unaware that there is a Lord, Creator and Provider. They knew that, and they still retained some traces of the religion of Ibraaheem, and they had contact with Jews and Christians.
 
But their problem was that they did not worship Allaah Alone in exclusion to others.  They had other gods whom they associated in worship with Him.   They worshipped these gods because they claimed that these were intermediaries who would intercede between them and Allaah and bring them closer to Allaah. Hence Allaah said concerning them
 
“And if you (O Muhammad) ask them: ‘Who has created the heavens and the earth,’ they will certainly say: ‘Allaah’” [Luqmaan 31:25]
 
This indicates that they acknowledged that Allaah is the Creator. Another aayah says
 
“And verily, if you ask them: ‘Who created the heavens and the earth?’ Surely, they will say: ‘Allaah (has created them)’”
[al-Zumar 39:38]
 
 
Many aayaat indicated that they believed in the Unity of Lordship (Tawheed al-Ruboobiyyah); their shirk was with regard to divinity (uloohiyyah), as Allaah says concerning them
 
“And those who take Awliyaa’ (protectors, helpers, lords, gods) besides Him (say): ‘We worship them only that they may bring us near to Allaah’” [al-Zumar 39:3]  
i.e., they said, we only worship them so that they may bring us closer to Allaah.
