It should be noted that humans are prone to commit sin. There is no one in this modern era who could claim that he or she is sinless. However, Allah has been extremely merciful to his believers. He asks them to realize their mistake and repent so that Allah may forgive them.

 

Once a person visited Ali (RA) and asked for the solution of repaying the debts, Ali (RA) told to do seek repentance from Allah. Another person came asking for the remedy of a sickness, Ali (RA) prescribed him too to seek repentance from Allah (SWT). One more person visited Ali (RA), asking for the bestowing of an offspring from Allah and Ali (RA) told to perform Istighfar as much as possible.

He furthered explained that all humans are same and they should be treated properly. The one who cannot give equality should not ask for justice when he comes under objection. People who treat each other with harmony and equality are the one loved by Allah.

Ibraheem Al-Nakha’I said: “If Satan comes to you when you are praying and says, “You are showing off,” then you should make it even longer. Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allah have mercy on him) suggested that seeking Allah’s refuge from the accursed Satan, one should go ahead with the good deed and not pay attention to his discouraging waswasaas (whispers from Satan). (Majmoo’ Fataawa Al-Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen, Question No. 277)

If you were willing to perform Umrah last year, but you have missed your chance to perform Umrah, make the effects work for your tour this year. Every year, millions of people put their requests for Umrah visa, which are issued all the way through travel agents approved by the Ministry of Hajj only. The approved Umrah travel agents are well versed with the rules and regulations for Umrah travel and work according to the code of conduct stated by the Hajj Ministry.

 

According to the Islamic point of view, before you start your journey towards the holy cities, such as Makkah and Madinah, you should clear all liabilities and clear of all debts.

Just the thought of performing Umrah energizes the devotee, but one should bear in mind that performing Umrah is an arduous task. Many people wonder ‘What is the best age to perform Umrah’, the age at which an individual can make the most out of these spiritual journeys. Many Ulema believe that it is better to perform Hajj and Umrah in young age. Youth? Juggling between responsibilities, overburdened with studies, carefree about finances, religious affairs… so not ‘their thing’, how could young age be the best age to perform Umrah?

Near Mosque Al Haram, on the way to Mina, there is a cemetery for the citizens of Makkah called Jannatul Maula or Al-Hajun. This cemetery is of imperative importance because it has the graves of Um-Al-Momeneen, Hazrat Khadija (R.A), Hazrat Qasim (R.A), Hazrat Asma Bint Abu Baker (R.A), Hazrat Abu-Talib (R.A), Hazrat Abdullah Bin Zubair (R.A), and other Ahl-e-Bait (members of the Holy Prophet (PBUH)’s family).

 

The cemetery is divided into two sections. One section comprises of old graves, while the other section is for the new graves where common people are buried. This cemetery is rated as the second most religiously significant cemeteries, after Jannat-ul-Baqi.

Can you provide any sources from Hadith or Qur'an saying graves are important?

Also Abu Talib died a kaffir. It isn't appropriate to put RA after his name.

One of the biggest concerns for parents remains were handled their kids when they take them along for Umrah. It is easier to manage the entire Umrah trip if the kids are above 5 years of age, but if they are younger it becomes difficult to deal with them. Certain factors and precautionary measures are to be taken in order to take proper care of them and avoid any sort of inconvenience during Umrah.

 

The very first consideration is to avoid taking more than 1 child (Under 5 years) with you on Umrah. Taking more children along is not a good idea as it may create a lot of trouble for you such as taking care and keeping an eye on them will become difficult, they might wander around and get misplaced. If you have your spouse along, if will become easier for you to handle the child.

The religion of Islam is all about human welfare. Allah loves mankind and wants us to stay safe from evil in all corners of life and so forbids certain things. Pork is strictly prohibited in Islam. In the Holy Quran, Allah has clearly ordered to all the believers to stay away from pork and revealed its exclusion of Muslims.

 

Prohibited to you (to eat as food) are: dead animal’s meat, blood, flesh of swine, and all that on which the name is invoked other than Allah –Al Quran 5:3
