Purpose in creation is meaningful

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | The Sunday Guardian | July 16, 2017

Why was this world made? Why was a human being born into this world? Why, after a certain period of time, does he pass away? What will happen after death? These are the most important questions concerning the origins and fate of humanity, and they should never be far from people’s minds. Finding the correct answers to these questions has always been one of man’s most important quests.

Death is not same for everyone

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | The Sunday Guardian |Jul 1, 2017

Death will overtake everybody; no one can escape from it. But death is not the same for everyone. Some have made God their goal in life; they speak and keep silence for His sake alone; their attention is focused entirely on the after-life. Death is for them the end of a long terrestrial journey towards their Lord.

The Prayer for Good Health

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | The Sunday Guardian |June 18, 2017

According to a hadith, the Prophet Muhammad is said to have remarked: “For whomsoever of you the door of supplication is opened, for him the doors of mercy have been opened. And in God’s eyes praying for good health is dearer to praying for anything else.” (Sunan al-Tirmidhi, hadith no. 3548).
