Oh how my heart finds solace when Fatima is mentioned!

She is the daughter of the prophet, the chosen one ﷺ, our everlasting shining lights!

-A Beautiful Qasidah by Al-habib Umar bin Hafiz


Let us remember there is no ahlul bayt without Fatima. This is why the Habaa’ib place much emphasis on her as she is the one who is closest to the prophet ﷺ in blood and mannerisms. She was the first of the ahlul bayt to follow the prophet  to the barzakh. Allah chose to continue the prophet’s ﷺ progeny only through her. There is no mother, daughter and wife like Fatima.


بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الحمد لله رب العالمين

وصلى الله على سيدنا محمد وعلى آله وصحبه وسلم

On the 27th of Rajab, before the Migration to Madinah, the Prophet Muhammad peace and mercy be upon him was taken on a Night Journey and Heavenly Ascent (Al-Isra’ wa Al-Mi’raj). Below are excerpts…


On the Duty of Loving the Noble Family of The Prophet ﷺ


O Allah, make me better than what they think of me, and forgive me for what they do not know about me.

It could take you months and even years on out to spiritually progress to the right path and just one tiny bump on that path can throw you off course and take you back to where you started. The struggle is picking yourself back up and having the courage to walk that long path back to guidance.
