Stagnate or Soar - The choice is yours
It's that time of the year again. All Muslims are aware that this period is supposed to be a time of revival and refreshing oneself, of reining in material desires and putting in some extra effort to become better Muslims. There is no doubt that every Muslim is aware of the importance of Ramadhan, of the Night of Power. . .

Ramadhan; 'Opportunity Knocks'
Truth is self-evident and it does not require a profound explanation. Man has completely realised that occasional withdrawal from full life not only tends to provide appreciation of life but also to provide a better means to treat and utilise it. This withdrawal can be considered ascetic in the spiritual terminology. Ramadhan becomes the vehicle through which man performs a khalwa while not eating and drinking (fasting). . .

Imam Hasan (a.s.)
Imam Hassan al-Mujtaba (a.s.) was the second Apostolic Imam of the Shia' Muslims. The Holy Prophet particularly loved the son of Imam Ali Ibn Abu Talib (a.s.), the successor to the Prophet Muhammad, Imam Hassan (a.s.). . .

Imam Hasan 'The Myth of his Divorces'
Imam Hasan has been the victim of a most malicious propaganda for the last 1,250 years. He is portrayed as "fond of ease and quiet" by his admirers (Ameer Ali in "Spirit of Islam") and "the great divorcer" by his detractors (Willi Frischaurer in "The Aga Khans"). . .

The attributes of Ali: The Voice of Human Justice
The Commander of the Faithful Imam Ali, peace be on him, is the most distinguished personality of Islam after Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be on him. His entire life is the life of struggle for the advancement of Islam. He was a great combatant, a great judge, a great philanthropist and the most pious person of his time. . .

For this reason, the World Organization for Human Rights called the rulers of the world to follow the example of his sound and humanitarian method in ruling which revealed the spirit of social justice and peace. . .
