Default sunni periodicals

periodicals from the subcontinent are getting better on most if not all accounts. content, design, punctuality and spelling and grammar.

these are some that i get to read:

1. monthly ashrafia, mubarakpur, india - it is from the famous sunni madrasa, al-jamiatul ashrafia. it's editor is mawlana mubarak husain misbahi. it can be read online. many of the contributors are graduates, having misbahi at the end of their names.

2. monthly jaam-e-noor, delhi - it was relaunched by the grandson of mawlana arshad ul qadri, khushtar noorani [aleeg]. some very good articles on current affairs. contributions from young sunni scholars who have travelled to the arab world for studies.

3. monthly zia-e-haram, lahore - the editor is pir aminul hasanat shah ibn pir karam shah al-azhari. always has a page each from zia ul qur'an and zia ul nabi of pir karam shah sahib. probably the lengthiest periodical.

4. monthly raza-e-mustafa, gujranwala, pakistan - the editor is hafeez niazi and is overseen by mawlana abu dawud muhammad sadiq rizwi. this is a traditional, staunch sunni periodical which is an unleashed sword against the heretics. some hard hitting articles against the insulters of rasulAllah sallAllahu 'alaih wasallam. been going over 50 years. it has latest news on sunni events, books, scholar etc.

5. monthly seedha raasta, lahore - the editor is mawlana munir ahmad yusufi. all articles are heavily referenced with full referencing from books of hadith and otherwise.

6. monthly maah-e-noor, india - looks similar to jaam-e-noor.

7. monthly alaHazrat, bareilly sharif - the editor is mawlana subhan raza khan. it has bab al-tafsir, bab al-hadith and malfuzat of alaHazrat in every edition.

8. annual yaadgaar e raza, mumbai - this is a compilation of articles to do with rizwiyat gathered by ghulam mustafa rizwi of malegaon. it typically covers 100-150 pages.

9. quarterly raza book review, india - this is similar to yaadgaar e raza. all to do with alaHazrat and rizwiyat.

10. quarterly afkar e raza, mumbai - this has ceased publication but was headed by zubair qadri. inshaAllah, the team will concentrate on other projects. online here.

at random i picked something and went here:
http://www.daleel-e-rah.info/0805/12-Ajkal_0805.html

the first line made me wince.
theater ke haal mein to baRa izhdiham hai*
masjid meiN haal ye ke bas Allah kaa naam hai

the theater hall is crowded
but the masjid has, well...just Allah's name
----

apparently, the poet wanted to convey his disappointment at the poor attendance of masjid but ended up with a statement that is open to interpretation...and censure.

the masjid has nothing but Allah's name. indeed, what else did you expect?

the name of Allah ta'ala is exalted and shall remain forever. so, even in an idiom, do not use it as if it is nothing. do not use it to convey a loss or a huge void.

it is said that imam a'azam sent his son to a teacher who taught him al-fatiHah; imam a'azam, the generous man he was, gave the teacher a gift of five hundred silvers (dirhams). the teacher embarrassedly said: 'all i have taught him is al-fatihah'. the imam said, 'do not underestimate that which you have taught my son. one should have immense respect to the immeasurable value of the qur'an. and if i was wealthier, i would have given you even more'*


Allah ta'ala knows best.


*izdiĥām is arabic with zaa and ĥā
azhdaham with the persian/urdu letter zhaa (as s in pleasure) and haa is given as correct in fayruzuddin's dictionary.

**the english is not a literal translation, but an attempt to convey the force of those words; see khayrat al-hisan, seventeenth section: on his generosity]

i think it is still a monthly. the editor is ilyas kashmiri and the raza academy, stockport, have quite a few publications to their name.

Can anyone explain the following I found on their website?

Why are they praising `Abdallah bin Baz?

Brother.. Ibn baaz was the one who Challenged Sarkaar Taajush Shariah Azhari sahab Daamat Barkaatuhumul Aaliya about his not offering Salaah behind Saudi Imaams... he gave a long description of Adaid-e-Ahlus Sunnah wa al-Jama'at... And tore them and their explanation apart...
