Waar Finally Gets Locked For Eid-ul-Adha

Galaxy Lollywood

Waar release poster

Waar has tested our patience a lot, multiple times. One Eid to another, we could just see the rumours of the film getting mistakenly released die every time pretty much since last year. It sure was hard on nerves, frustrating indeed.

But why not bury the hatchet and move on, because that’s what the distributors of Waar expect us to do, by finally locking and announcing the release date for the film, and the cherry on the top is that the date isn’t that far either, just within a couple of days, some

“Islam strictly…


“Islam strictly forbids terrorism. Hell is the final abode for those who spill the blood of an innocent human, Islam does not allow terrorism at any cost. Islam condemns all violence and terrorism plaguing the world today. Muslims should demonstrate a love for peace and unity”
– Sheikh Abdulaziz al-Sheikh, Grand Mufti of the Ka’aba in his Hajj Sermon

Part four of lessons in ‘Aqeedah

دروس عقدية مستفادة من الحج

Excerpts from The Teachings of Hajj by Abdul Razzaq ibn Abdul Muhsin



The preceding post dealt with the virtue of Tawaaf around the sanctified House of Allah, and we emphasized that it is prescribed only at that specific location.

Excerpts from The Teachings of Hajj by Abdul Razzaq ibn Abdul Muhsin


The day of ‘Arafah is certainly a tremendous day; a blessed day chosen by Allah, an immense gathering of goodness, eman, taqwa, and a grand occasion of worship and obedience to Allah. A day when many tears are shed and prayers pour forth in succession, one after the next; an abundance of mercy descends, and mistakes and errors are pardoned. It is a day of hope, devotion and humility. 

It is the day on which Allah perfected the religion for this Ummah and completed His favor upon them, as it was on this day that Allah revealed, 

الْيَوْمَ أَكْمَلْتُ لَكُمْ دِينَكُمْ وَأَتْمَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعْمَتِي وَرَضِيتُ لَكُمُ الْإِسْلَامَ دِينًا ۚ

This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favour upon you, and have…
