I spend every waking second of my short stays in Madīnah seated next to the ... Read More »

By: Abu Aaliyah (Surkheel Sharif) There have been times throughout history whereby the heavens have opened and the celestial light cleansed certain human souls, who, as a result, were divinely invested with prophethood (nubuwwah) – the highest condition possible for any human being.

Allah

By: Abu Aaliyah (Surkheel Sharif) There has been a certain reluctance on the part of classical scholars when it comes to defining love (mahabbah).
