  • Don't Be Basic; 3 Stages of Belief, Action, & Taqwa [Sayyid Muhammad Rizvi]

    Don't Be Basic; 3 Stages of Belief, Action, & Taqwa - Sayyid Muhammad Rizvi  - Discussing the 'levels' and darajat for us to strive towards - The difference between basic rulings and higher darajat - Generally 3 sets of levels containing belief, actions, and taqwa, one higher than the next - The importance of constantly working towards the next level - The importance of not putting down those who are at lower levels, considering yourself to be superior - Physical vs spiritual effects of our actions The famous question I always get: 'Are tattoos halal or haram?'.

  • How do you 'enjoy' ibadat?; Tips for Creating Enthusiasm & Interest [Sayyid Muhammad Rizvi]

    - Be aware of what you're going to do. Learn the understandings of what you're about to do, prepare mentally for it. - How do you 'enjoy' ibadat? Or have enthusiasm? - As a child or a new Muslim, you memorize Sura al-Fatiha, another sura, and other phrases for prayers. - However don't stop there once you grow older. Learn the meaning behind the words, and connect with Allah. - Some sins create barriers from feeling enthusiasm regarding ibadat. The same way an ill individual with a stuffy nose may not sense the fragrance of perfume, similarly various sins prevent you from feeling joy of ibadat. - Time and space is also important. If salat is simply an item in your schedule which you 'must do and get over with it' so you can get back to 'important' business, then you won't feel joy of the ritual.

There is no Khums on a Loan – so what if a person takes a loan or uses their Line of Credit to purchase RESP or RRSP? a.
