bismillah. is there a way to force the site to display the mobile edition of content? i am using internet explorer on a WM6 powered smartphone. some pages display in the MM site’s easy to read mobile edition. then explicably many other pages will only display in the standard desktop-browser edition.
the old blog-only format was more smartphone friendly, perhaps because of where menus appeared on the page. so now the version (mobile/desktop) displayed is more important.

I am writing to you in regard to a new Islamic App that I just released that is aimed at the youth and new Muslim in particular.
The name of the app is iSawab, and it’s available for the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Android devices.
The app allows you to track your deeds on an everyday basis, including your prayers, dhikr, volunteering among numerous other good acts that earn oneself rewards in this world and in the hereafter.
I was wondering if Muslim Matters would be able to spread the word so our youth in particular could benefit from this tool.

I am very appreciative for the work you have done promoting Islam. I am a website designer from Chicago and I myself have a website of my own promoting Islam and helping people convert called http://goodislamiceducation.com/ I wanted your advice on how I could make it better, how I can get more people to visit it and learn from it more, or if you can promote this website on yours. I also wanted to know If I could use some of your video links on my website as well,
May Allah give you the strength to keep doing good deeds as this. Ameen.

The 5 Good News Stories is an excellent idea. JazakAllah khair for this – I always thought it would be excellent if someone took the initiative to circulate good international news instead of bad. Why should the horrific, depressing and negative news take up 99% of the space? The Sunnah encourages giving good news. So do keep it up! Here’s a link to another good education news story: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/taheedul-islam-girls-high-school-2321831

Government Attacks on Circumcision and Hanukah
Rabbi Allen S. Maller
The highest court in North Rhine-Westphalia Germany, barred a Muslim mother from circumcising her six-year-old son, claiming the procedure will cause the boy psychological damage.
For the first time, a German court relied on the country’s new circumcision law passed in 2012, after harsh criticism from both Jewish and Muslim groups of a previous Cologne court ruling forbidding circumcision.
The German court also said that the mother did not take into account the wellbeing of the child; and did not consult with her six year old son before making the decision, as is stipulated in the 2012 law. The ruling was handed out at the end of August 2013.
An even bigger threat to Jewish and Muslim ritual circumcision comes from the Council of Europe, which defined the practice of circumcision as a “clear human rights violation.”
This definition is included in a report on circumcision, and female genital mutilation; which is a human rights violation and not a part of Muslim law.
The slanderous report was submitted recently for a vote by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, an international organization whose resolutions are influential but non binding.
“Circumcision applied to young boys clearly is a human rights violation against children,” reads the report, brought before the assembly for approval by a lawmaker from Germany.
The vote on the report, which is titled “Children’s Right to Physical Integrity,” coincides with calls by some health officials and politicians in Scandinavia to ban non-medical circumcision of boys under 18.
In Scandinavia, home to some of the world’s most secular societies, three parties have officially come out in support of a ban on Jewish and Muslim circumcision since the ruling in Germany, including one conservative anti-immigration party in Finland and another left-leaning anti-Israel party in Denmark.
As a rabbi, I know that all these governmental attacks on circumcision are just history repeating itself, as it frequently has over the last twenty two centuries, since the first Hanukah resistance to the first attempt by a government to forbid circumcision.
The first of the eight nights of Hanukah is early this year (Jews follow a lunar-solar calendar) starting on November 27, 2013, but it comes just at a time when once again there are government officials trying to forbid the practice of Jewish and Muslim ritual circumcision.
In 169 BCE the Greek rulers of the Syrian Empire, decided to prohibit Jews from circumcising their sons, as part of government program to make Jews conform to Greek standards of civilized behavior.
Greek pressure on Jews to ‘fit in’ culturally had some limited success with many wealthy Jews and among some of the upper levels of the priesthood in Jerusalem.
Then the Greek King ordered that a statue of himself be placed in the courtyard of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem. He also ordered Jews to stop circumcising their sons.
This led to a revolt which broke out in 168 BCE in the small village of Modin, led by a man called Judah, the Maccabee (hammerer) and his four brothers.
With trust in God, the Maccabee brothers (four of who were killed in battle over the next two decades) defeated the much larger Syrian armies, recaptured Jerusalem and rededicated (Hanukah) the desecrated Temple in an eight day festival.
Hanukah, the Festival of Freedom celebrating the duty to say ‘NO’ to the unjust demands of a dictatorial government, is still celebrated to this day in Jewish homes by reciting blessings, lighting candles, singing songs and retelling the ancient story in various forms.
The oppression of Judaism by Antiochus IV, the Syrian Greek king, was the first known attempt at suppressing a minority religion, but unfortunately not the last. Other well known attempts were the three century long Roman persecution of Christianity, and the persecution of Muhammad and his followers by the majority of pagan Arabs in Makka.
All three religions emerged from their varying periods of persecution stronger than ever, and this is the ongoing spiritual lesson of the Hanukah lamp that once lit by faithful believers, filled with hope and trust in God; lasts longer than anyone else thinks possible.

please help find it.

I recently listened to the talk by Br Yasir Qadhi: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJmrPh2sRuw
Some thoughts on the talk are:
1. What is the intention behind highlighting such mistakes of the ulama of the past?
2. Is it not normal/usual that people resist initially?
3. Did Abu Bakr not hesitate to compile quran as a book?
4. Did Imam Ahmad not charged Imam Haaris al Muhaasibi for writing books?
5. The intention behind scholars’ fatwa was pure anyway, or do we question it?
6. Having ‘short-sightedness’ is not something to be rebuked for. is it? this is Allaah gifts to whomsoever He wishes.
7. What are the consequences of such talks?
8. Would it not tarnish the character of Ulama?
9. Would it leave any doubts in modern Muslim’s mind about the ‘ignorance’ and ‘untrustworthiness’ of the ulama?
10. Would it not be sensible and more pious to speak directly to the ulama, or to write to them?
11. Is it not backbiting the ulama of the past as a group?
12. Is there not a grave risk of displaying self-appraise/ujb?
13. Is this not adding to the damage caused by you in your ‘salafi’ days – giving common men license to move out of the scholarship and be ‘muftis’ themselves!
14. Don’t say that you reiterated the significance of linking up with ulama in this and many other talks as this was not the ‘crux’ of the talk.
15. Your comment – ‘what is the use of the fatwa if people do not listen or act upon it’ is surprisingly unwise. Or if the majority will dictate what is right and what is wrong by their approval in practice?
16. Why is it so shameful to even mention that ulama condemn the idea of slavery as haram? No one suggested to continue or spread slavery but to ban it would have been very much a serious issue given the qati’ nusoos permitting it.
May Allaah guide us all aright and rectify our intentions and actions.

I have submitted a pre-Ramadan reflection article a few days back. Since it is a time bound article I was hoping to make sure if it is approved and will be published by you before Ramadan. Please let me know if it is not approved so that I can submit it elsewhere as very little time is left before Ramadan. Jazakallah Khair…
June 10, 2014 at 11:47 AM
Asalam o Alaikum,
As stated in my last comment I submitted a pre Ramadan article and wanted a response from you if it was accepted or not so that I can submit it elsewhere if its rejected. However since there is no response I have decided to submit it on other platform. As there is no way of communication with muslimmatters.org (the contact form is sending failure delivery message and no one is responding to comments here) I was left with no choice but to put this message here. Since this article is time bound and would become useless once Ramadan begins I was compelled to take this step. Other platforms would also take time to review and publish.

The virtue of the Holy Quran Tajweed
Tajweed history Allah Almighty revealed the Holy Quran upon His last messenger Holy Prophet
Muhammad(ﷺ)graduallyduring a period of twenty-three years more or less there in era, no recording or printing
device sare not available as that now Therefore, the sole possible thanks to preserve this endowment of Allah was to
findout by memory At the start of the revelation of the Holy Quran, Holy Prophet (ﷺ) recite it and narrated the
versesof a specific chapter(Surah) of the Quran to His companions. Hence, during this way, the recitation of the
Quran Tajweed commenced Next, the foremost task was to recite the Holy Quran in Its proper pronunciation. Then
the concept of Tajweed Quran was being introduced.
Tajweed is an Arabic word that linguistically means ‘proficiency’. It comes from an equivalent root letters because
the word Jayyid, which suggests ‘good’. Therefore, if Tajweed is to be considered with regards to Quran recitation, it
means learning the Quran within the proper way by keeping in mind the requisites of Arabic pronunciation. When
every letter of the Quran is pronounced with proper understanding and therefore the way it deserves to be recited,
then we will say that the Quran is being recited with Tajweed.
In other words, when the angel Jibril (Gabriel), may Allah exalt his mention, recited the words of Allah to the
Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) recited them during a certain way and he showed the Prophet (ﷺ) the ways during which it
had been permissible to recite the Quran. So, it’s obligatory upon us to watch those rules in order that we recite it
within the way it had been revealed.
At the time of the Prophet (ﷺ) there was no need for people to review Tajweed because they talked with what’s now
referred to as Tajweed.
Tajweed Al Quran means reading every word of the Quran with its proper grammar and pronunciation. The Quran
is that the most precious Holy book for Muslims. there’s a gift for reading it every word. In fact, for a far better
understanding and accurate readability, it’s obligatory to read with Holy Quran with Tajweed.
Significance of Tajweed
Besides the actual fact that the Quran should recite with Tajweed is that the Sunnah of Holy Prophet Muhammad
(ﷺ) there are other purposes or importance behind the observance of Tajweed while reciting the Quran. The
observance of Tajweed is that the incontrovertible fact that the Quran is revealed by Allah Almighty. Hence, being
His subjects, it’s important that we should always read and recite the Quran within the exact same way as He has
revealed it. The recitation of the Quran serves the very fact that words don’t change their meanings. Quran is within
the Arabic which may be a very sensitive language and any variation within the sort of shortening or elongation of
sounds leads to a change in meanings. Therefore, observing the principles of Tajweed in reciting prevents the
recitation of the Quran from making mistakes while reciting the Holy Quran.
The Holy Quran is that the book of ultimate guidance. In fact, it’s not a book for reading and reciting only. It’s a
book of learning and understanding. Islam may be a practical religion and Holy Quran guides us about every aspect
of life. Above all, there’s a gift for each single word of the Quran.
Arabic may be a beautiful language,
and particularly the literary genre of the Quran is matchless. In fact, the reading of the Holy Quran is extremely
sweet and provides pleasure and satisfaction. most significantly it provides an accurate sense once we read the holy
Quran with proper Tajweed.
The Quran is that the word of Allah, and it’s every syllable is from Allah. Its recitation must be taken very seriously.
the aim of the Science of Tajweed in essence is to form the reciter proficient in reciting the Quran, observing the
right pronunciation of each letter with the rulings and characteristics which apply to every letter, with none
exaggeration or deficiency. And so, through this, the reciter can recite the Quran upon the way of the Prophet (ﷺ)
who received it from Jibril who received it from Allah Almighty within the Classical Arabic dialect that it decreased
in. Arabic letters each have a Makhraj an exit or articulation point within the mouth or throat from which they
originate and that they also each have Sifaat attributes, or characteristics particular to them.
Knowing the Makhraj and Sifaat of every letter is a crucial a part of Tajweed. Sometimes two letters have very
similar exits which make mixing them up easy. So, if an individual doesn’t know the attributes of every letter there’s
a danger that he will change the meaning of the words within the Quran recitation. Observing the principles of
Tajweed in reciting protects the reciter from making mistakes in reciting the Quran.
The Messenger of Allah! said:
“Whosoever reads a letter from the Book of Allah will receive a Hasanah (good deed)
from it (i.e. his recitation), and therefore the Hasanah (good deed) is multiplied by ten. I don’t say that Aliflaam
Meem is (considered as) a letter (in reward), rather Alif may be a letter, laam may be a letter, and Meem may be a
letter.” (Reported by AtTirmidhi, AdDarami).
And he! also said: “He who is skillful in reciting the Quran is with the unveiled, honorable, and pious (i.e. Hural
Ain). And he who stutters when reading the Quran, (and its recitation) is difficult upon him,) And he! said: “Verily
he who has nothing of the Quran in his heart is sort of a house (which has been) destroyed.” (Reported by At
Tirmidhi) have two rewards.” (Reported by Bukhari).
The Holy Quran is that the greatest blessing of Allah Almighty not only for Muslims but all citizenry. It carries great
knowledge whether regarding the universe or about human life generally. Besides the enriched knowledge, the
recitation of the Quran carries religious and spiritual benefits for Muslims. The Holy Quran is that the literal words
of Allah Almighty that He revealed as an infallible source of legislation for mankind. Being so important, the Holy
Quran must be recited correctly, so as to not create any kind of ambiguity or misunderstanding. Allah Almighty
addressed Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) within the Quran, “…And recite the Quran with measured recitation.”
The ruling of reading with Tajweed
Muhammad bin Al Jazaree the good Quran and Hadeeth scholar of the 9th Century (Hijri) said in his famous poem
detailing the principles of Tajweed: “And applying Tajweed is a problem of absolute necessity, whoever doesn’t
apply Tajweed to the Quran, then a sinner is he.” Sheikh Zakariya Al Ansari [died in 926 H.] said in explanation of
this verse in his book: Sharh al Muqaddimah al-Jazariyyaa “It is required to watch all of the Arabic rules therein
which changes it and ruins the meaning”. So, he regarded it as a compulsion to refrain from the main slip ups in
reciting the Holy Quran. the students have divided the kinds of mistakes one might fall under when reciting the
Quran into two types:
• Major mistakes: which usually change obvious things and alter the meaning.
• Minor (hidden) mistakes: that one may have to review Tajweed rules.
Allah says within the Quran, the meaning of which is:
‘And recite the Quran (aloud) during a (slow and melodious) style (tarteela)’ (Surah Muzammil, ayah 4).
‘Those who we’ve given the Book to, provides it its right in recitation (recite it because it should be recited)’ (Surah
alBaqarah ,ayah 121).
Holy Prophet (ﷺ) wish to recite the Quran in slow, measured, rhythmic tones as Allah had instructed him, not
hurriedly, but rather “he would recite a surah in such slow rhythmic tones that it might be longer than it might seem
possible.” He would stop at the top of every ayah.
He commanded people to recite during a beautiful voice during a pleasant melodious tone. He said “Beautify the
Quran together with your voices [for a fine voice increases the Quran in beauty]” and he said, “He who doesn’t recite
the Quran during a pleasant tone isn’t folks.” Unfortunately, only too often we discover people reciting the Quran
quickly and without changing their tone and with none feeling.
The recitation of the Holy Quran must not be barren of from emotions and sentiments, one Holy Prophet (ﷺ) said:
“Truly the one who has one among the best voices among the people for reciting the Quran is that the one whom
you think that fears Allah once you hear him recite.”
Once when Holy Prophet (ﷺ) complimented Abu Moosaa alAshari on the sweetness of his
recitation, Abu Moosaa
said “Had I known you were there, I might have made my voice more pleasant and emotional for you.”
Holy Quran may be a book of Allah reveal upon the last Messenger Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (ﷺ). Holy
Quran discusses the unity of God, the looks of Adam and Eve and their arrival on earth, tidings and warnings from
Allah Almighty to believers and nonbelievers of their act, commands, and prohibitions then far more. These all
narrated to readers through six thousand 600 sixty-six verses in a whole Holy Quran. Therefore, when a private
recites Holy Quran without depicting truth feelings, it imparts a message that a reader is oblivious to the Arabic.
additionally, lack the elemental skills to grasp the meaning and message of the Holy Quran’s verses. Thus, being
Muslim it’s our duty to remember of the principles of Tajweed and recites the Holy Quran with correct
pronunciation by keeping in mind truth meaning of each verse. In last, the Holy Quran revealed within the
Arabic, and people who aren’t belonging to Arabian Peninsula must learn the Arabic. So, that the obstacle to find
out and understand Quran are going resolved gradually.

I hope you guys are doing well. I have a question if you help me ..
These days whenever some elder female family member dies her family members start sharing their photos on social, or using them as wallpapers on mobile phones.
So my question is whether it’s good or not.
As I think if a female spends her whole life in parda, and did not show her appearance in front of any na-mahram then how somebody can share her photo on social media and shows her face to the whole world?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
