Salāh. A connection to our Allah. A means of stopping ourselves from lewdness. A source of finding inner peace along with outer. Many a time, salāh is the only part of the day when we turn to our Lord Almighty and rekindle the spark of imān. Unfortunately, we tend to be spiritually deprived from this sacred ritual with distractions ranging from crying children to burping adults. But the most disturbing—and quite frankly, annoying—distraction of all occurs when the Imam is beautifully reciting the blessed words of the Qur’ān or the musallīs are praying quietly, and suddenly the fragile, glass-like sanctity of salāh along with its peace, focus, and spirituality is shattered by a continuous flow of brain throbbing tunes.....

DUA FOR PROTECTION AGAINST EVIL EYE AND ENVY
It was narrated from ‘Aisha (Allah be pleased with her) that the Prophet صَلَّى الله عَليْهِ وسَلَّمَ commanded her to have someone recite Ruqyah to treat the evil eye. (Bukhari, Muslim)
روى البخاري عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ رَضِي اللَّهُ عَنْهُمَا قَالَ كَانَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم يُعَوِّذُ الْحَسَنَ وَالْحُسَيْنَ وَيَقُولُ إِنَّ أَبَاكُمَا كَانَ يُعَوِّذُ بِهَا إِسْمَاعِيلَ وَإِسْحَاقَ
The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم used to seek Refuge with Allah for Al-Hasan and Al-Husain and say: "Your forefather (i.e. Abraham) used to seek Refuge with Allah for Ismael and Ishaq by reciting the following:
أَعُوذُ بِكَلِمَاتِ اللَّهِ التَّامَّةِ مِنْ كُلِّ شَيْطَانٍ وَهَامَّةٍ وَمِنْ كُلِّ عَيْنٍ لامَّةٍ .

Are we truly on the straight path? After every some time, a new sect appears claiming to be rightly guided and condemning everyone else. With so many different sects, opinions, and beliefs how can we ever know that we are truly on the straight path? In the first few ayas of the Qur'an, Allah has given us the criteria to know where we stand: as true believers or as deviants and heretics. He tells us in Surah Fatiha that we must consider who we emulate. If they are among “those whom You have blessed,” then we have nothing to fear because we know we are on the Straight Path.
The purpose behind this series is to recognize “those whom You have blessed,” and to love them, because the blessed Prophet a said, “A person will be with whom he loves on the Day of Judgment (Bukhari).” Following in their footsteps will ensure preservation of our iman and the iman of our progeny.

The greatest asset in this world is the knowledge of Allah, by which one knows his Lord. This is the most fundamental and necessary form of knowledge. In reality, he who does not know Allah does not know himself or his origins no matter how educated he may be.
The most effective way to know Allah is to know His attributes. The more one learns about His attributes the stronger his connection will be with his Creator. This universe is a manifestation of the many attributes of the Creator. If we understand the meaning of these attributes, then we will never be disconnected from Him. This is why it is essential for every believer to learn about his Creator’s Attributes; it is the means of protecting his faith and the prism through which we recognize Him in His creation.
