Surah : Al-Kursi


In the name of Allah the Most Merciful, and Most Compassionate.


There is no god but He,

The Living, the Everlasting,

Slumber seizes Him not, neither sleep,

To Him belongs all that is in the heavens and the earth.

Who is there that can intercede with His, except by His leave?

He knows what lies before them and what is after them,

And they comprehend not anything of His Knowledge save as He wills.

His throne comprises the heavens and the earth,

The preserving of them fatigues Him not,

And He is the All-High, All-Glorious.

[Al-Quran: Surat al-Baqarah, Ayah 255]


Ubayy bin Ka'b (radiAllahu anhu) reported:

The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: "Abu Mundhir! Do you know which Ayah in Allah's Book is the greatest?"

I said: 'Allah and His messenger know best.'

He (peace be upon him) again said: 'Do you know which Ayah in Allah's Book, according to you, is the greatest?'

I (Abu Mundhir) replied: ‘It is 'Allah la ilaha illa Huwal-Hayyul-Qayyum'.[2:255].

Thereupon he (peace be upon him) patted me in the chest and said, ' Rejoice by your knowledge, O Abu Mundhir! (i.e, may this knowledge be a source of respect, honour and benefit to you)'."


When you lie down in your bed, recite ayat al-Kursi, Allah! La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He), the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists… [al-Baraqah 2:255] until the end of the ayah, then you will have a protector from Allah and no shaytan (devil) will come near you until morning comes.

[Sahih al-Bukhari]

Everything has its pinnacle and the pinnacle of the Qur’an is Surah al-Baqarah. In it there is an ayah which is the greatest in the Qur’an: Ayat al-Kursi

From Darkness to Light..

by Umm Junayd

As loneliness savours on my soul
I peer into the mirror to see what it holds
I blink back at myself, questioning who I am
She is unrecognisable, who is it there that stands?

Her eyes are empty, filled with darkness
They contain no emotion, but long happiness.
Her shoulders are exhausted, her neck worn to the core
Her arms are depressed, her posture lifeless.

My identity has lost it way and cannot find the route back
Leaving my soul, body and mind black.
I am a never ending well, drifting in the unknown
I am as dry as a desert at night, dusty, cold and alone.

I thought I was happy all this time
But I was obviously blind.
I am now a lost sheep in the dark
Who is constantly searching for the light.

As I passed by the Masjid, something was calling to me,
It was a place of worship, my soul felt at ease.
I watched the believers pray and I knew I belong,
How close my safe haven was; I'd been searching for so long.

Life isn't about enjoyment, how foolish that would be,
It is about worshipping Allaah, praising Him consistently.
Thanking Him for the life we have, we are truly blessed,
Life without Allaah's guidance can leave us in a mess.

Woe to those who transgress Allaah's limits
They have been set for us to stay within it.
Woe to those who choose to disbelieve,
In this world they think they will always live.

Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet said, "On the Day of Resurrection Allah will hold the whole
earth and fold the heaven with His right hand and say, 'I am the King:
where are the kings of the earth?" ' - Sahih Bukhari, number 479

Our Lord! forgive us
our sins and anything
we may have done
that transgressed our duty:
Establish our feet firmly,
and help us against
those that resistFaith.

- Qur'an – 3:147 -
- Al 'imran: The Family of Imran -

May Jannah be granted..

Surah Yaseen

Inna Lillah Wa Inna Ilayhi Raji'oun
(Meaning: Truly we belong to Allah and truly to Him shall we return)

سُوۡرَةُ البَقَرَة

ٱلَّذِينَ إِذَآ أَصَـٰبَتۡهُم مُّصِيبَةٌ۬ قَالُوٓاْ إِنَّا لِلَّهِ وَإِنَّآ إِلَيۡهِ رَٲجِعُونَ)١٥٦


"Who, when afflicted with calamity, say: "Truly! To Allâh we belong and truly, to Him we shall return." (156)

~ Pok De passed away about 6pm yesterday, to be buried this morning.

An elderly man (98-year old this year), he and family had become a part of our family ever since we were blessed to meet him..He'd be greatly missed by us, especially for his religious teachings...may the knowledge that he shared with us be guidance for us to be better servants of Allah SWT..

May Allah SWT bless his soul and grant him Jannah...amiin.
