To investigate, to discover, compare and contrast, through fair and sincere means, with the aim of realizing the truth, one will instantly and inevitably come to realize, know and ensure the truth, prophethood, supremacy, superiority, dignity, honour and respect of the great Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), the last of the prophets and the leader of all.

Indeed, he is an especial good man of piety, honour, patience, modesty, virtue and sound character. He is a man of unique manner and mannerism, always guided by the divine guidance. In fact, he is the only 100% man ever set foot on earth. In reality, he is the dearest servant of Allah, the most conscious in Allah and the most purely pious. The prophet philosopher who salvaged the world from the darkness of astray and ignorance to an ever-lasting light of guidance and knowledge, and put the world in the forthright position of civilization, growth, development and prosperity. All the so called modern man’s civilization and achievements were obtained from his very voice of reason and wisdom. Every human must obey him directly or otherwise and every creature is fully aware of his unique superiority and wonderful character. He is the loftiest man born to this world; likewise he shall be the loftiest in the hereafter.

A man with the above exceptional qualities/nature and extraordinary talent most not be overlooked, disdained, denied and or disobeyed. Yet he is the one brought with him, the true religion of Islam from his supreme lord – Allah the essence of existence and the lord of mankind. True religion is indeed, which signifies oneness of Allah and total submission to Him; a religion which signifies social justice, peace and integrity.

Islam is a name of religion means total submission to Allah, social peace and justice. And Muslim is the name given to the followers of Islam. Islam is a belief, a way of life and a complete institution of legislation and constitution. Tawheed, ritual worship, social justice trustworthiness, honesty, peaceful coexistence, unity, mutual respect and universal brotherhood are among the manifold of the teachings of Islam. There is hardly anywhere and every nook and cranny that Islam has not reached due to its divine mighty power and forceful acceleration. This is an apparent and conspicuous considerable miracle to the rejecters of Islam. Our Islam teaches us worship, tolerance, patience, helping the needy and general good behaviours. Moreover, the all teachings of Islam have heard from the blessed tongue of our great Prophet (PBUH). The best philosophy of life has been heard from His short, precise but enriched words. Share these few with me now in order to live in happiness and die in bliss.
A Bedouin came one day to the Prophet and said to him, “O, Messenger of God! I've come to ask you a few questions about the affairs of this life and the Hereafter.” The Prophet responded Ask what you wish. So the Bedouin starts asking while the Prophet is responding. Some of the questions and answers include (but not in order):
 I'd like to be the most learned of men.
 Fear God, and you will be the most learned of men.
 I wish to be the richest man in the world.
 Be contented, and you will be the richest man in the world.
 I'd like to be the most just man.
 Desire for others what you desire for yourself, and you will be the most just of men.
 I want to be the best of men.
 Do good to others and you will be the best of men.
 I'd like to be the most just man.
 Desire for others what you desire for yourself, and you will be the most just of men.
 I'd like to complete my faith.
 If you have good manners you will complete your faith.
 I'd like to complete my faith.
 If you have good manners you will complete your faith.
 I'd like my sins to be very few.
 If you seek the forgiveness of God as much as you can, your sins will be very few.
 I'd like my prayers to be responded.
 If you avoid forbidden actions your prayers will be responded.
 What will save me from sins?
 Tears, humility and illness.
 What are the best deeds in the eyes of God?
 Gentle manners, modesty and patience.
 What are the worst evils in the eyes of God?
 Hot temper and miserliness……………….
Imam El Mustaghfiri said: "I have never heard a tradition more comprehensive of the beauties of religion, and more beneficial than this hadith. It collects all the good things of Islam but not put to use." (The Hadith is related by Imam Ibn Hambal).
Oh Brother let us try, to the best of our capability, to put the above prophetic teachings in our practical life so that we may prosper in both this world and worldstop (hereafter).

On Friday April 13, 2007 there was chaos and confusions engulfed the whole Northern states of Nigeria particularly Kano, Maiduguri, Kaduna and others, when the demise of the great Shiekh Ja’afar was announced in different media. The great Sheikh was brutally assassinated via a shot of gun while offering his ‘Subh’ (morning) prayer in his mosque. Those who know Sheikh Ja’afar knew him only for his commitment to Islam and for his eruditeness and eloquence in ‘Tafseer’ (Qur’an Commentary). He was killed just for he proclaimed that “There is no deity worthy of worship except Allah”: no legislator and no law-giver besides Allah, and for that he called for the abolition of any system of life not designated by Allah. This is the reason why the great Sheikh was killed by the ‘neo-Jahili’ leaders of Nigeria. Despite that the material body of the Sheikh is no more here with us the since…

Development of Muslim Sects and Philosophy

This noble blog is dynamic and versatile, created purposely to enhance the development of Islamic political thought and activism in the minds of the students and the general public


Development of Muslim Sects and Philosophy During the lifetime of the prophet (S.A.W) there is nothing like conflicts, contradictions, or disputes existed among the Muslim ummah. This is because that any arising question or problem was referred to the prophet (S.A.W) for its answer or solution. In not more than one verse Allah has enjoined the companions and Muslims in general to refer all their questions and problems to prophet (S.A.W) and to make him their unquestioned leader and chief judge in all aspect of life. This of course, made any conflicts and disputes impossible among the Muslim ummah in the prophet era. The beginning of Muslim sects and contradictions could be traced back to eventual sickness of the prophet (S.A.W). While in his sickbed, the prophet (S.A.…

The Insider (4): “On The Film Village Affairs”

The Friday Sermon (4): By: Salim I. Hassan ( July, 2016 What I observed in the prolong debate on Film Village ban in Kano is lack of any supporting Islamic source of evidence from both sides of Facebook sheikhs (i.e the opponents and proponents). If people were unable to produce Islamic or jurisdictional source of evidence to substantiate their wishful thought on matters related to Islamic rulings is better to shut up their mouth.  The worst part of the argument is the mocking of scholars by some proponents of film village as I read from Aisar Fagge’s post. I have tried to reply to some post with direct quotations from Saudis scholars that make all sort of image-making and film making Haram, though that does not represent my stance.  If you are true a ‘Izalite’ or Salafist your right position is to oppose and fight against film village, for that is final position of salafiyya scholars that all sort of image making, film making and music are all absolute Haram, o…
