at-Tazkirah: التذكرة

“And keep reminding, because reminding benefits the believers.” (51:55)

About التذكرة

All praise be to Allah through whose Grace all righteousness is completed. May mercy and peace be upon the most virtuous of all creatures, Hadhrat Muhammadur Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) and mercy also be upon his family, his companions and followers until the day of Reckoning.

The purpose of this Blog isn’t to teach someone his Deen (religion), rather it’s to remind myself and others of “La Ilaha Illallah – Muhammadur Rasulullah” and everything this Kalimah contains.

Thus I’ve decided to rename the Blog from “True Life’s Blog” to “at-Tazkirah: التذكرة“, which literally means “the reminder”. Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala himself says in the Holy Qur’an,

“And keep reminding, because reminding benefits the believers.” (51:55)

So, with the niyyat (intention) of following this divine command I’m posting on this Blog.

Because of their excellent way of handling both, the internal states and affairs (Tasawwuf, Islah-e-Nafs etc.) and the external ones (Fiqh, Masa’il etc.) at the same time without going into any extremes, myself prefers the Deobandi-minhaj. Insha’Allah, we all will benefit from these pious Akaabir, ‘Ulama-e-Haqq and their sacrifices for this Ummah amd Deen-e-Islam.

May Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala grant me Ikhlas, Istiqamat, Husn-e-Akhlaq and plant real love for Him and His Habib Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) in my heart! Ameen.

    Salaam brother/sister.

    Please can you explain to me what the “Deobandi” School is? What is its history? Do you have a Sufi tariqa? Like Chistiyya, Naqshbandiyyah, Qadiriyyah…?

    Also, where can I learn more about it?

    Please forgive my ignorance, may ALLAH reward you well.

  5. True Life says:

    Wa Alaykumus Salam,

    Read the following post: Deobandi school of thought.

    I’m yet without a Shaykh or Silsila but am planning to make baya’at to a Shaykh of the Chishti-Imdadiyya-Ashrafiyya tariqa – Insha’Allah.

    That are really good sources to learn about the science of purifying one’s soul, next to the Tasawwuf category on this Blog.

    Make Du’a for me.

    Assalamualaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    I am sending this message to as many of the WordPress blogs that are geared towards promoting Islam. It may or may not have come to your attention but many if not all of the authentic sunni blogs fail to add the “Islam” tag to their articles.

    Only deviated sects/anti-islamic blogs seem to be adding the tag of Islam to their articles/posts. As a result of that when one does a search of articles on Islam only those blogs are seen. Click on the link below and see for yourself:

    I recommend that you add the Islam tag to all your articles to counteract this. Maybe adding a “Religion” tag too might be a good idea also. Add the Islam tag atleast and then you could add the tag for the specific subject matter, “Quran” for example.

    Some of you may be wondering that your particular blog is suited just for Muslims; but in my humble opinion – it does not matter and it shouldn’t really be a cause for concern.

    wal-Allahu a’lam

    Please circulate this within you blogroll insha- Allah.

    Forgive me for contacting you in this manner, I dont have your email add.

    As-salaamu Alaykum,

    Dear Brother,

    I am sending you below the link of the new articles by Harun Yahya. I would appreciate if you have the means to include and publish these at your website:

    As you know, Harun Yahya’s works are followed by hundreds of thousands of people all over the world and readers confirm that the author’s books and articles have provided them the opportunity to submit to Islam. Also, others comment that their belief in Allah has strengthened by means of his works.

    We would indeed be pleased if you could contribute to communicating the author’s works to more people.

    If you could please inform me when you publish the articles and send me the related link, I will be happy to review it.

    May Allah reward you for your efforts in Islam.

    Respectable Umrah Pilgrims

    As’Salâm Alaikum Wa’Rahmatullâhi Wa’Barakâtuh

    By the grace of Almighty Allah you shall soon be traveling for performing Umrah. Surely you shall take care of the sacredness of Harmain Shareefain (Makkah Al Mukarama and Madina Al Munawara). In this regard we request you to remove Musical Ring Tones from your mobile (Cellular) phones before departure and during Umrah try to keep your mobile phones on Vibrators/Silent. By this you shall be avoiding any disturbance to your worship as well as to the worships of other pilgrims and furthermore the sacredness of Harmain Shareefain shall not be harmed. We hope that you shall put heed to this request and shall convey this message to other pilgrims as well. May Allah Subhanawatallah accept your Umrah. Ameen

    Was’Salâm Alaikum

    معتمروا بيت الله الكرام

    السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

    نرجو منكم التكرم بعدم استخدام النغمات الموسيقية في جوالكم (موبايل) خلال أداء مشاعر العمرة، وتواجدكم بالحرمين الشريفين، بل حذفها نهائياً من الجوال. ووضع الجوال في حالة الاهتزاز/ صامت قدر المستطاع، أو إغلاقه خلال تواجدكم بالحرمين الشريفين. حتى لا يقع أي خلل في عبادتكم وعبادة بقية المعتمرين. والمحافظة على تقدس الحرمين الشريفين. نتمنى منكم العمل بهذا الرجاء، وتبليغه إلى بقية المعتمرين. تقبل الله منكم عمرتكم وندعو سبحانه وتعالى أن تكون عمرة مبرورة، وسعيا مشكورا، وذنبا مغفورا (أمين).
    والسلام عليكم

    Assalamu alaikum,

    I hope you don’t mind me asking this, but what is your real name, True Life?

  31. RIS says:

    The only reason I asked your name brother, is because I also live in Canada, and am extremely interested in studying the Deen in South Africa..I heard you have similar interests and also live in Canada after reading your posts on Sunni Forum.

    Perhaps I even know you in real life, but not as True Life. Please contact me by personal email (which you will find in the WordPress Admin Panel for this comment) if you don’t want to disclose your name here.

    Assalamu Aleikum,

    Hope all is well with you.
    Wanted to check with you if you would be open to the idea of reviewing an Islamic App on your blog. I have recently introduced an Islamic App that allows users to track their deeds, thus enabling focus on areas of shortfalls and increasing others from current levels. The name of the app is iSawab.
    For more details, please visit And if you’re able to review the app, I would certainly appreciate the gesture.
    Thanks for your time.

    Assalam Alaikum.
    ‘God is not a Delusion: A Muslim Doctor Presents Evidence for Belief’
    This is a well-researched book that presents arguments to counter atheism, written by a Muslim doctor, from an Islamic perspective. The book will be available in July from the following link.
    It will be best if the book can be ‘talked about’ on your website.
    Kind regards,

  35. aiko says:

    Jesus manifested Himself and revealed His power and proved His words over 600 years before islam and Muhamad came. so when Muhammad came and denied words of Jesus, it was already too late because Jesus already said what He said. because Jesus already said He is God almighty and proved it with power with miracles and with signs and wonders. and Muhammad never made one miracle to prove what he said. even more…Muhammad’s god, Allah – after Muhammad introduced Allah to the world – nobody could prove whether Muhammad spoke the truth or not since Allah has no contact with people so Allah was only a word on paper for humanity and Allah never proved a word Muhamad said and never hislef manifested to people nor proved he exists…Allah does not heal the sick nor speak to people nor has any personal relationship with people but the true real loving God always manifested Himself to people. always made miracles, always spoke to individuals, even to children, to women, to common people since He has no favorites and He created people for personal relatiosnhip with people.
    Jesus manifested the Father’s love to the world. He showerd that love is action and love is practical and that is why He died on the cross (which is the historical undeniable event which happened long before Muhammad denied it) in order to save people and Allah promises only hell for every soul…no other promises….
    even more…Allah commands to beat women if they disobey men (making by it women slaves of men: 4:34) and Allah calls the abuse…mercy….and in surah 9:5 Allah commands muslims to kill non-muslims if they dont want to accept islam and Allah calls the murder…mercy….so for Allah murder and abuse is mercy…..
    but for God who is love…love is giving His own life to save humanity and in His love He made us His children (Allah has only slaves….) and He set us free from the punishment for sins, from hell and from eternal death….that IS love….because the true God is love. Love is who He is and this is His nature and He proved it…
    the Bible is the most proven historical archeological and scientific book and there is 160 statements in the Bible that Jesus is God…and a man, Muhammad who came over 600 years later and he lived a very immoral life, denying Jesus and His purity and lying against God, cannot change what Jesus said and proved about Himself
    just think about it and think who really deserves trust and faith in His words…whether sinless pure Jesus or Muhammad who married a child (pedophilia), who had many wives (adultery), who had sex slaves, who killed hundreds upon hundreds of people and whose life was full of violance and immorality…and even Allah called Muhammad sinful in surah 48:2…
