Say: "O Mankind! Now has the truth come to you from your Lord! Those who receive guidance, do so for the good of their own soul; those who stray, do so to their own loss: and I am not (set) over you to arrange your affairs." Yunus (10):108

How can you reject faith in Allah, seeing that you were without life and He gave you life? Then He will cause you to die, and will again bring you to life, and then to Him you will return. Al-Baqara (2):28.

Had We sent down this Qur’an on a mountain, truly, you would have seen it humbled and split asunder from fear of Allah. Such are the similitudes which We present to mankind, that they may reflect. Al-Hasri 21.


GHAFIR (AL): audio "The Forgiver". Another name for Al-Mumin Surah 40 of the Holy Qur’an.

GHALIB (AL): The Unseen. ‘Ilul Ghaib = Knowledge of the unseen. No human has ‘Ilmu Ghaib. Only Allah Ta’ala has total command of that knowledge. Bil Ghaib = In the unseen. All Muslims believe in the Unseen, i.e. all that is revelaed to us by Allah Ta’ala in the Holy Qur’an and by the Holy Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, about the Malaika (angels) and the life in the Akhira (Hereafter) in all its aspects, even though they are invisible to our eyes. See Holy Qur’an, Al-baqara (2):3.

GHAIRAH: This word covers a wide meaning------ jealousy as regards women, and also it is a feeling of great fury and anger when one's honour and prestige is tainted,damaged,provoked or challenged.

GHAIR MUAKKADA (SALAT): Unascertained prayers. These types of optional Salat (prayers) were much, but not always, practiced by the Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace. See Nafilah.

GHARAR: Selling something which has not yet been obtained. For example, selling eggs which have not yet been hatched.

GHAYY: Deception, Name of a pit in Hellfire.

GHAZI: A Muslim fighter returning after participation in Jihad (Islamic holy fighting).

GHAZWAH: (plural : Ghazawat). A holy battle or fighting for the Cause of Allah consisting of a large army with the Prophet (Peace be upon him) himself leading the army.

GHAZI: A Person who has taken part in a Ghazwa.

GHAZWA: A Holy battle for the cause of Allah the Almighty in which the Prophet Muhammad himself, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, took part: al-Maghazi or Ghazwat.

GHEEBA: Talking evil about someone in his or her absence. Backbiting. See Holy Qur’an, Al-Hujarat (49):12.

GHEERA: This has a wide range of meanings. The closest description that may be found in the English language is justifiable jealousy. It signifies a feeling of great anger when something one loves is encroached upon. Of all mankind, it was Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, who had the greatest sense of Gheera, for he was the man upon whom Allah chose to bestow such a great honour as has never been bestowed by Him upon any being before or since. The mightiest rank of jealousy is the jealousy for Islam which manifests when one hears someone treat Allah’s religion as a jest.

GHULOOL: Stealing from the war booty before its distribution.

GHURAF: Special abodes.

GHURR-UL-MUHAJJALUN (AL): A name that will be given on the Day of Resurrection to the Muslims because the parts of their bodies which they used to wash for ablution will shine then.

GHUSL: The full ritual washing of the body with water alone to be pure for the prayer. To do Ghusl: (1). Wash your private parts. (2). Do Wudu . See Wudu (3). Wash your entire body from the top to bottom and from right to left, without touching your privates parts again.

It is necessary to have Ghusl on embracing Islam, after sexual intercourse or seminal emission, at the end of menstruation, after childbirth and before being buried (when your body is washed for you). It is also customary to have Ghusl before the Jumua and Eid prayers. It is necessary to be in Ghusl and in Wudu (or alternative to do Tayyamum under certain circumtances) being doing the Salat or touching the Qur’an. See Hadath, Tayyamum, Wudu.
