Fruits for the Week

Header Last edition English


Allah’s creation includes creatures that are visible and invisible to the human eye. Among the invisible creatures are the angels and the Iblis and shaitan (devil). Angels are spiritual beings endowed with one set ability only. They constantly and continuously adore Allah and execute His Commands day and night without fail. All their virtuous acts are spontaneous. They have no option of their own to do evil. Hence, by nature, they are free from all animal passions and evil temptations, and so they cannot go astray. The devil occupies the opposite camp.

Hajj is the fifth pillar of Islam and is an act of ibadah (worship), like prayer and fasting. It is a religious duty and is obligatory, once in their lifetime, for all those Muslim who can afford to perform it. All the five pillars of Islam perform very important and specific functions in training a Muslim for the service of Islam.
