I need your prayers !

Posted on Aug 30, 2009 12:35:09 PM

Firstly, an update for all friends and well wishers who are wondering why my posts are not as frequent as they should be in the month of Ramadan. Ramadan and pre-Ramadan was quite busy for me since I was working on two films for my dear friend Mukhtar ul Mustafa.

One film was titled ‘The Days of Darkness’ which portrayed the era before Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). This story was told through the eyes of a mother whose daughter is taken for being buried alive. The short film highlights Read the rest of this entry »

Even good deeds will become worthless, while you remain unaware – Allah warns in the Quran.

Unimaginable!!! Allah tells us in the Quran about one act that can nullify all our deeds!!! And that too while we remain unaware about it!!! Here is the Ayat of the Quran in which there is a great warning by Allah SWT:

Allah offers forgiveness to certain people in the Holy Quran.

Posted on Aug 26, 2009 12:22:36 PM

Since Ramadan is the month wherein the Holy Quran is recited most frequently, this Ramadan, I will try and put up a few posts based on some of the ayats of the Quran.

We try so hard in Ramadan to get our sins forgiven. We try so hard in Ramadan to get special rewards from Allah SWT. And Allah offers these two big gifts to certain people. It might surprise you that in the Quran, Allah offers forgiveness and great reward to people for a very simple looking act. What is that simple yet effective act of worship? In the Quran Allah SWT says:

Why will a billion people give up food and water for 30 days in Ramadan once again? Hadith e Nabavi PBUH inside.

Posted on Aug 20, 2009 08:47:51 AM

How is that for a following? About 1400 years back one person asked his followers to fast in a particular way, and billions of people ever since have followed these injunctions. How did one person make us give up our lunch? Why do millions of people go thirsty for 30 days – sometimes even in scorching sun?

We are so selfish – then how did we agree to give up some of the most critical things in our life – food and water?

We fast because we know that he (PBUH) speaks for us and our benefit. We have never ever seen him say anything that would harm us. He had kind words and prayers even for his tormentors. He only wished good for us and did good to us. We have experienced only good from the system that he gave us.

We give up food and water because we trust him when he says it is good for us. And we keep discovering that goodness even today. We believe everything that he says because we are sure about his truthfulness. When he says that we are the recipients of honors and rewards from Allah in this month we believe it. Because he PBUH is the beloved of Allah SWT and who would know better about Allah SWT, than his beloved?

So instead of talking about the approaching Ramadan myself, I will reproduce below some things said by the master PBUH himself :

O People! The month of Allah (Ramadan) has approached you with HIS mercy and blessings. This is the month that is the best of all months in Allah’s view. Its days are the best among the days; its nights are the best among the nights. Its hours are the best among the hours.

This is a month in which he has invited you towards him. You have been, in this month, selected as the recipients of the honors of Allah, the Merciful. In this holy month, when you breathe, it has the Sawab/thawab (heavenly reward) of ‘Tasbeeh’ (the praise of Allah on rosary beads), and your sleep has the thawab of worship.

What is that image on the green flag?

Posted on Aug 4, 2009 03:27:42 PM

In one of my naat videos I have used a green flag with an image on it. This green flag represents peace and harmony in the story of the video as you can see in the video embedded further down in this post.

Till date at least 7-8 people have asked me what that image on the green flag was. Maybe they had never seen this image before or maybe the image was not clear enough in the video. This post is to clarify what that image really was.

That image was the image/impression of the highly respected relic of Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) sandals. This relic and the associated impression/image represents the sandals that once touched the holy feet of the Prophet (PBUH). These sandals have also gone to the highest heavens when the Prophet PBUH went for Meraj.

Why use it as a symbol of peace and harmony in the video? Because the master who wore these slippers stood for peace and harmony. We print it on flags, we print it on paper. We kiss the paper on which it is printed and we venerate it. Just like we kiss and venerate the Quran which is printed on paper but which represents the blessed Quran that was revealed to Prophet Muhammad PBUH by Allah SWT.

We are impressed by that great person who prayed for those who stoned him mercilessly. The woman who chewed his dear uncle’s liver after having him killed got amnesty – and that too when this great Prophet PBUH was in total control of her city and could have her beheaded. And this amnesty was extended to many other people who were cruel to this Prophet of peace (PBUH).

We are so impressed that we search for relics and symbols associated with him. One such relic are the sandals shown in the video below. We are impressed with him and we are grateful to him. And hence we go to Medina to see the city where he stayed, to pay our respects to him, to thank him. Our eyes strain to see the signs and symbols associated with the life of this great Prophet. But alas these symbols have been destroyed. His place of birth has been converted to a building. Other symbols have been destroyed. We are shooed when we try to thank him in front of his final resting place. His mother’s grave has been bulldozed and gasoline was poured on it!!!

I dedicate this video below to that great mother who gave birth to the greatest creation of Allah SWT.
His sandals are dear to us, and his mother is dearer.
Very dear to us are his family – the Ahle Bayt (RA).

Watch the video below and enter and dedicate your comments for that noble mother of the noblest creation:

More films on Tauheed – shorter versions this time.

Posted on Aug 4, 2009 07:07:48 AM

In my last post I embedded some of my longer (45minutes+) films on the topic of Tauheed. These films were made for broadcast TV quite some time back. This time I have embedded a title song from a silent film that I did (without dialogues). Also included below is a song from my feature length film and a short promo for the TV series ‘Deedaar’ that was based on Tauheed. These shorter versions are for the benefit of those who could not spare the 90 minutes to watch the two full stories that were embedded in the last post.

Films on Tauheed

Posted on Aug 3, 2009 05:18:24 PM

I have been asked several times if I have done any films on Tauheed or Monotheism or on the topic of Allah SWT. I know why they ask. Most or all films that you see on my youtube channel or on my site have some element promoting the love of the noble Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
To answer this question I can only say that all my films have Allah SWT as their focus since praising and discussing the creation is actually praising and discussing the creator automatically. If you praise my website you are actually praising me.

Nevertheless I have actually made many films on the topic of Tauheed or Monotheism. Tauheed was taught by the Prophet PBUH and in fact it was he who got rid of the scourge of polytheism and paganism which plagued the world before him.

Below are two of my films made exclusively on Tauheed. These films try to examine atheism, the concept of God and our relationship with Allah SWT.
