Our Motto : 'In-Allah-ha-Ma'anaa' ("Be not grieved, for surely Allah is with us." - The Holy Quran 9:40). We find spiritual strength, courage and comfort, in the times of trials and  hardships, from this Divine Quranic revelation that descended upon the pure heart of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him), so as to console and compose him during one of the most perilous moments of his life. <Please click the 'Our Motto' link on our homepage for more details>

A Merciful Host:


Printer-friendly Version

During the Abbasid Caliphate there lived a man who had many enemies. He looked for a hiding place in Kufa, Iraq. He wore a disguise so that no one would recognise him. He was wandering about when he saw a big house with a large courtyard and a gate wide open. He went inside. The owner of the house saw him and asked him, "Who are you and what are you doing here?" He replied, "My life is in danger ad I am looking for shelter."

The host showed the man to a room in the house. He lived there in great comfort. But one thing troubled him. He did not understand why his host went out on his horse every day. He seemed to be looking for something. One day he could bear it no more and asked him where he was going and what he was doing.

The host said, "I am searching for the murderer of my father." He also told him the name of the murderer. Hearing his own name, the man became frightened; he wondered whether or not to tell his host that he was in fact his father’s murderer.

At long last he said with a heavy heart, "I am going to make your job easy. Because you have been very kind to me I feel I should help you. In truth I am the murderer of your father."

The host was very surprised to hear the man and thought he did not love his own life. He became very angry. After a short while he said, "I am so very angry that I do not want to spare your life. However, I will forgive you provided you leave my house at once before I change my mind."

At this, the man left, spared by the host who practised the Qur’anic verses: The reward of an ill deed is an ill the like thereof. But whosoever pardons and amends, his wage is the affair of Allah. Lo! He loves not wrongdoers (42:40; 26:126).

There is in Islam neither the one extreme of tooth for a tooth and an eye for any eye, nor the opposite one of turning the left cheek when the right is smitten, or giving away the cloak to one who has already wrongfully taken the cloak of his brother.
