WHY MUSLIM PREFER TO CALL ALLAH? The Muslims prefer calling the SupremeCreator, Allah, instead of by the English word God. The Arabic word, „Allah‟, is pure & unique,unlike the English word „God‟, which can be played around with. If you add „s‟ to the word God,it becomes „Gods‟, that is the plural of God. Allah is one & singular, there is no plural of Allah.Therefore the Muslims prefer using the Arabic word Allah for the Almighty.99 NAMES OF ALLAH: Allah The Greatest Name: Ar-Rahman 1 The All-Compassionate, Ar-Rahim 2 The All-Merciful, Al-Malik 3 The Absolute Ruler, Al-Quddus 4 The Pure One, As-Salam 5 The Source of Peace, Al-Mumin 6 The Inspirer of Faith, Al-Muhaymin 7 TheGuardian, Al-Aziz 8 The Victorious, Al-Jabbar 9 The Compeller, Al-Mutakabbir 10 TheGreatest, Al-Khaliq 11 The Creator, Al-Bari 12 The Maker of Order, Al-Musawwir 13 TheShaper of BeautyHELL IN HOLLY QUR‟AN: 15.

These messages were collected in the form of books.THE BOOKS OF ALLAH: The Qur‟an speaks of four such books. These four books are:1)The Suhuf which given to the prophet Ibraaheem (A.S), 2) The Zaboor which was given toProphet Daawood (A.S), 3) The Tawraah which was given to Musaa (A.S), 4) The Injeel whichwas given to Prophet Isaa (A.S), and 5) The Qur‟an which was given to Prophet Muhammad(P.b.u.h).THE BOOKS OF ALLAH: All these books had the same message of Tawheed, i.e. “THEREIS NO GOD BUT ALLAH” What happened to these books? Except for the Qur‟an, all theother books were lost or changed by people. Today the original words of these lost books do notexist, but we still believe that Allah once sent these books. We now have the Qur‟an only. It‟swords are original. Allah has protected the Qur‟an in its original form.AL-MASJID: A masjid is a place in which Muslims pray five times a day. When it is time forSalah, the Mu‟adh-dhin calls out the adhan from the majid. You should enter with the masjidwith the right foot first, saying “Bismillaah, Allaahummaftah lee abwaaba rahmatik” (in thename of Allah. O Allah, open the gates of your mercy for me). You should take off your shoes orsandals and leave them at the entrance of the masjid.AL-MASJID: In the prayer hall, there is a niche, called the mihraab shows the direction of theqiblah. The qiblah is the direction towards which we pary. The masjid should be kept clean.Before going to the masjid, you must make sure that your body and clothes are clean and thatthey do not smell bad. After salah, leave the masjid with the left foot first saying: “Bismillaah,Allaahumma innee as‟aluka min fadlik”AL-ADHAN (THE CALL TO PRAYER): The mu‟adh-dhin calls out the five times a day inthe mosque. Muslim then get ready to offer Salah. The adhan reminds the muslim that it is time
for prayer. When you hear the adhan, you should prepare yourself for salah. You should leaveaside whatever you may be doing at that time as soon as possible.WUDHU: The prophet Muhammad (P.b.u.h) said that a person‟s prayer (Salah) is not acceptedif he is not pure. So, before praying a Muslim must purify himself. He should wash off the dirt, ifany, from his body. A Muslim should make sure that his clothes are clean. Wudhu should beperformed with pure water.THE FIVE DAILY PRAYERS: The second pillar of Islam is Salah. A Muslim must offer fivefard prayers a day. Fard is Arabic word which means compulsory. The fard prayers arecompulsory prayers. No Muslim should avoid them or delay them, without a valid reason. Thefive daily prayers have the following rak‟ahs. 1) Fajr: two rak‟ahs. 2) Dhuhr: four rak‟ahs. 3)Asr: four rak‟ahs. 4) Maghrib: three rak‟ahs. 5) Isha: four rak‟ahs.PROPHET MUHAMMAD: (P.b.u.h) Prophet Muhammad (P.b.u.h) was born in Makkah onMonday, Rabee‟ al-awal, in the year of elephant. It was the year 570 according to the Christiancalendar. Prophet Muhammad (P.b.u.h) was born 50 days after the event of the year of theelephant. And what is the year of the elephant? The Arabs before Islam of course had nocalendar. They counted days and months but they did not number their years.KA‟BAH: Abraha built a splendid Church in San‟aa, but the people did not come to hisChurch. They continued to visit the Ka‟bah. Abraha needed no further excuse. He set out forMakkah with a large army to break the ka‟bah down. At the front of the army he placed anelephant. No one in Makkah had ever seen an elephant before. Abraha was not far from Makkahwhen the elephant stopped and it wouldn‟t move any further (Continue) … KA‟BAH: Abraha‟s large army also stopped. At this point a miracle happened. The Qur‟antells us its story. Since then this year was called the year of Elephant. It was the year Allah‟smessenger (P.b.u.h) was born.
PROPHET MUHAMMAD: Prophet‟s mother name was Aminah bint Wahab. She belongedto a noble family of a tribe Quraysh. The prophet‟s father name was Abdullah and hisgrandfather name was Abdul-Mutatalib. They also belonged to the Quraysh tribe. He died inMadinah months before the birth of his son. Abdullah was only 25 years old when he died.PROPHET MUHAMMAD: When his mother Aminah gave birth to him, his grandfatherAbdul-Mutalib named him Muhammad. Abdul-Mutalib hoped that his grandson would bepraised and respected by everyone in the world. Most of the Quraysh used to send their newbornchildren to the desert. This gave the children good health. It kept them away from the crowd city.This also helped them to learn the pure Arabic language.DHIKR AND DU‟AA: Dhikr is an Arabic word. If you do dhikr of someone you remember thatperson. You mention him to yourself or to someone. In Islam it means remembering Allah.Du‟aa is also an Arabic word. When you make du‟aa to someone you pray to that person to giveyou what you need. A Muslim only prays to Allah and asks Allah for whatever he needs. Du‟aais a way in which Muslims worship Allah. Muslims only make da‟aa to Allah.DHIKR AND DU‟AA: We should make every kind of du‟aa to Allah as He says: “Invoke Meand I will answer your call”. We should ask Allah alone for help. Dhikr is remembrance ofAllah. Allah is our creator. We have nothing of our own. Allah has given us all we have our lifeand all we possess. Every gift is from Allah. We should be thankful to him for these gifts. Weshould love Him above all things. We worship Him alone, fear Him alone.DHIKR: We worship him by praying to Him. But now? Allah‟s messenger (P.b.u.h) said thatwe can do this by saying a number of statements, like the following ones: Subhaan-Allah, Al-hamdu Lillaah, Laa ilaaha Illallaah, Allaahu Akbar. If we say this from our hearts, we can getcloser to Allah, no name is greater than Allah‟s name.DU‟AA: Prayer: Du‟aa is a great tool in the hands of a Muslim. Prayer is a Muslim‟s strength.We can pray to Allah in our own language. We can pray to Allah in our own words. But it is
always better to pray as our prophet (P.b.u.h) has taught us. Allah‟s messenger (P.b.u.h) hastaught us supplication or du‟aa for every occasion.SAY BEFORE LEAVING YOUR HOUSE: Bismilaah, Tawakkaltu „alallaah, wa laa hawla walaa quwwata ilaa billaah (In the name of Allah; I place my trust in Allah, and there is neitherpower, nor might except with Allah.SAY BEFORE YOU ENTER THE MASJID: Bismilaah, Allaahummaftah lee abwaabarahmatik (In the name of Allah, O Allah, open the gates of your mercy for me).SAY BEFORE YOU COME OUT OF MASJID: Bismilaah, Allahumma innee as‟aluka minfadlik (In the name of Allah, O Allah, I ask you of you bounty.SAY BEFORE ENTERING YOUR HOME: Bismilaahi walajnaa, wa bismilaahi kharajnaa,wa‟alaa rabbinaa tawakkalnaa ( In the name of Allah we enter, and in the name of Allah weleave, and in our lord we put our trust).WHEN YOU GO TO BED, SAY: Bismik-Allaahumma amootu wa ahyaa (In your name, OAllah, I die and I live).WHEN YOU WAKE UP FROM YOUR SLEEP IN THE MORNING, SAY: Al-hamdulilaahiladhee ahyaanaa ba‟da maa amaatanaa wa ilaikhin-Nushoor (All praise is for Allah whohas brought us to life after causing us to die, and to him is the resurrection).
