Death is a kind of compulsory eviction

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | ST Blog, Oct 13, 2017

Of all the stages through which a person will have to pass, death is the most certain. Everyone who is alive now will be dead sometime in the future. One day the eyes of those who see will fade and their tongues freeze into silence. Every human being will one day be leaving this world, never to return, and entering a world which he will never leave.

In this matter, Muslim jurists need to correct themselves instead of wrongly justifying triple talaq.

Feed Your Starved Intellect & Beat Stress

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | TOI, The Speaking Tree | p. 22, May 17, 2017

The problem of stress is very common. Almost all of us suffer from stress and so we need to find a method for de-stressing. In my experience, there is no mechanical technique of de-stressing. Such a technique could be applied only to a robot, not to a living human being.
