Patience....

Is the balm for the woman whose husband is cruel, for the sick person whom doctors cannot cure, for the debtor under the pressure of his/her financiers and for the worried person consumed by grief and concerns.

Patience is the cure for all of those who are waiting for Allah to release them from their burdens.

To Allah belongs all praise no matter how protracted a person's trials may become.....

When someone is crying, of course the noble thing to do is to make him/her to be comfortable but if he/she is trying to hide his/her tears, it may also be noble to firmly pretend that you don't notice what's happening to them.

Give a little distance and finally come to their aid with what is possible...
Love yourself in people for your life is nothing without them.
Take your chances to make all your dreams come true and never wait too long or else it could all slip away in a blink of an eye. Keep much faith and have a firm belief but that shouldn't be a reason to sit back and fold your hands without exercising effort.

May we be rightly guided...
We fall short, commit sins either knowingly or unknowingly. At times we draw so near to HIM and sometimes we turn away. None of us is free of sin and we will inevitably commit mistakes.

The Prophet ﷺ said: “Every son of Adam sins, and the best of those who sin are those who repent.” [At-Tirmithi]

[08/23/21]   When Allah wills good for a person, He opens the door to humility for him, and makes him see his faults, ignorance, wrongdoing and transgression of His limits, and softens his heart so that he may repent, pray for forgiveness and regret his sins and shortcomings.

The mercy of Allah encompasses all things. If a person’s sins are very great and he has wronged himself very much, but he then repents, Allah will accept his repentance and will forgive his sins no matter how great they are. Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“Say: O ‘Ibaadi (My slaves) who have transgressed against themselves (by committing evil deeds and sins)! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah, verily, Allah forgives all sins. Truly, He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful” [al-Zumar 39:53]

Sincere repentance is not merely the matter of words spoken on the tongue. Rather, the acceptance of repentance is subject to the condition that the person gives up the sin straight away, that he regrets what has happened in the past, that he resolves not to go back to the thing he has repented from, that he restores people’s rights or property if his sin involved wrongdoing towards others, and that he repents before the agony of death is upon him. Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“Allaah accepts only the repentance of those who do evil in ignorance and foolishness and repent soon afterwards; it is they whom Allah will forgive and Allah is Ever All-Knower, All-Wise.

And of no effect is the repentance of those who continue to do evil deeds until death faces one of them and he says: ‘Now I repent;’ nor of those who die while they are disbelievers. For them We have prepared a painful torment” [al-Nisaa’ 4:17-18]

I ask Allah to make us steadfast in adhering to His religion and to keep us on the straight path. Fear Allah and obey Him as much as we can, "and fears and obeys Allah, He will give him (or her) a way out." I ask Allah to grant us strength.

I ask Allah to guide us to good deeds and positive thinking.

Learn to hide the sins of others and preserve their honor. A story with a powerful lesson for us all. Read and Learn!

One day, Umar (ra) left his home with Abdallah bn Mas'ud during the late hours of the night, they saw the glow of a fire burning at a distance. They followed the light until it led them to a home with burning lamp, upon seeing the lamp, Umar entered the house and saw a man with alcohol in front of him and a female singer entertaining him.

The old man was caught off guard by Umar's sudden attack when he (Umar) said to him, "I have not seen a sight more shameful than what I have witnessed tonight from an old man who should be awaiting death,". The old man responded, "Indeed O leader of the believers, what you have done is more shameful, you have entered my house without my permission and spied on me, and is not spying forbidden in Islam?". Umar admitted to the truth of his statement and left the old man's house biting his garment and crying as he (Umar) said: May the mother of Umar lose him if Allah does not forgive me".

Thereafter, the old man stopped attending the gatherings of Umar, after sometime had passed, Umar saw the old man in one of the last rows of his gatherings and wished to speak with him, fearing harshness from Umar, the old man approached him cautiously, being asked to come closer and closer until he was finally seated near the leader of the believers. Umar asked him to bring his ear closer, and he whispered in the old man's ears; "By the one who has sent Prophet Muhammad with the truth, I have not informed anyone of what I saw of you that night, nor have I informed Abdallah ibn Mas'ud, for he was with me that night. The old man replied, " O leader of the believers, by the One who has sent Prophet Muhammad with the truth, I too have not returned to those evil actions since the night you entered upon me. Upon hearing that, Umar uttered out loud "ALLAHU AKBAR!", yet no one from the gathering knew what had occurred between the two men, that is Umar (RA) and the old man, not even Abdullah ibn Mas'ud who was with Umar that night.

This is how we are supposed to be as Muslims but Unfortunately, today a friend tells us a secret, the moment we have a quarrel with that person, we start exposing his/her secrets to others, where's the trust?. Sometimes a married woman/man confides in you with his/her family problems, but we can't wait to have the slightest opportunity to tell others. A person commits a sin that you witnessed, you did not even advise him/her, you probably even hailed him/her for committing that sin, yet you go out to slander him and tell everyone.

Imagine if Allah was to expose you of all your secret sins, how would you feel? So why then do you expose others? will it not be better for you to advise and pray for them? Nobody is perfect, we all have lapses and we pray to Allah to guide us always, but remember slandering or exposing someone for his lapses will only make your situation worse.

May Allah guide us all.

[08/04/21]   A reminder....

O mankind! Keep your duty to your Lord and fear a day when the parent will not be able to avail the child in aught, nor the child to avail the parent. Lo! Allah's promise is the truth. Let not the life of the world beguile you, nor let the deceiver beguile you in regard to Allah.

AL-Quran
S. Lugman V.33

[07/18/21]   ▫
Verily! Man is in loss, Except those who believe, and do good deeds.

Allah Subhanahu Wa-Ta'ala says (Translation): By the time, Verily! Man is in loss, Except those who believe, and do good deeds, and recommend one another to the truth, and recommend one another to the patience. (Al-'Asr 103: 1-3)

Note: For salvation there are four essential requirements.

1. Eeman,
2. Good actions,
3. Recomending one another to the truth and
4. Recomending one another to patience.

In this Surah, Muslims have been given very great guidance; which is this, that just as it is necessary to correct one's own Eeman and actions, so also it is equally important to struggle for the improvement of the Eeman and actions of other Muslims. In particular, one's immediate family and relatives. Correcting one's own personal Eeman and actions is not enough. For this reason in the light of Qur'an and Hadith, it is obligatory (Fard) to order to good and forbid evil to the extent of one's capacity. In this matter not only the ordinary Muslim but many religious Muslims are negligent and think that one's personal actions are sufficient; being totally in different to what their children and family do. May Allah give all of us the strength to act on the guidance given in this Surah.

[07/15/21]   Hadith: 'Ubadah Ibn-Samit Radiyallahu 'anhu narrates: I heard Rasullullah Sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam saying: Five times Salat has been made mandatory by Allaah 'Azza wa Jalla. He who performs his Wudu well, and offers Salat at their appointed time, performing complete Ruku', and with fear and devotion, for such there is a covenant from Allaah, that He will forgive him; and the one who does not do so, no covenant for him is with Allah. If He wills, He may forgive him and if He wills, He may punish him.

(Abu Dawud: 425)

[06/27/21]   The Messenger of Allaah (ﷺ) said, “Seven people Allaah will give them His Shade on the Day when there will be no shade but the Shade of His Throne (i.e., on the Day of Resurrection): And they are: a just ruler; a youth who grew up with the worship of Allaah; a person whose heart is attached to the mosques, two men who love and meet each other and depart from each other for the sake of Allaah; a man whom an extremely beautiful woman seduces (for illicit relation), but he (rejects this offer and) says: ‘I fear Allaah'; a man who gives in charity and conceals it (to such an extent) that the left hand does not know what the right has given; and a man who remembers Allah in solitude and his eyes become tearful”.

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

[06/17/21]   Hadith: Anas Ibn-Malik Radiyallahu 'Anhu narrates that Rasulullah (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa-Sallam) said: Verily, the slave of Allah, when he is placed in his grave and his companions depart, he indeed hears the beat of their sandals, and then two angels come to him and make him sit up and ask: What did you use to say of this man, Muhammad Sallallahu '(Alaihi wassallum)? As for the Mu'min (believer) he will say: I bear witness that he is the slave of Allah and His Messenger. It will then be said to him: Look towards your dwelling in Hell; Allah has replaced it with a dwelling in Paradise. He will then see both the dwellings.

And as for the Munafiq (hypocrite) and Kafir (unbeliever), it will be said to them: What did you use to say concerning this man? He will reply: I do not know; I used to say what the people were saying. It will then be said to him: Indeed, you knew not, nor did you follow those who knew. Then, he will be beaten by hammers of iron, causing him to scream, the sound of which will be heard by everyone around him except men and Jinn. (Bukhari: 1374)

[06/02/21]   Hadith:
Abu Hurairah (RA) narrates that Rasulullah (SAW) said: Hasten to perform good deeds before you are overtaken by seven things: Are you waiting for
1. Such poverty that makes one unmindful of devotion, or
2. Wealth that makes one rebellious, or
3. Sickness that disables, or 4. Old age that makes one lose his senses, or
5. Sudden death (often not giving an opportunity of turning with repentance), or
6. Dajjal who is the worst evil of those absent evils being awaited, or
7. The Hour? And the Hour is very grievous and very bitter. (Tirmidhi: 2306)

Note: This means that one should prepare for his Hereafter by performing good deeds before any of the above mentioned seven situations arises, thus rendering him unable to do good deeds.

May Allaah help us all.

[05/05/21]   Abu Al-Abbas 'Abdullah Bin Abbas, Radiyallahu Anhuma, reported:

One day I was behind the Prophet; Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam and he said to me:
"O young man, I shall teach you some words [of advice]: Be mindful of Allah and Allah will protect you. Be mindful of Allah and you will find Him in front of you. If you (have need to) ask, ask of Allah; and if you seek help, seek it from Allah. Know that even if the nation (or whole community) were gathered together to benefit you with something, they would not benefit you anything except that which Allah has already recorded for you, and that if they gather together to harm you with something, they would not be able to harm you with anything except that which Allah has already recorded against you. The pens have been lifted and the pages have dried."
(At-Tirmidhi relates this and says: It is a good, genuine Hadith)

In a version other than that of al-Tirmidhi reads:
"Be mindful of Allah, you will find Him before you. Get to know Allah in Prosperity and He will know you in adversity. Know that what has passed you by was not going to befall you; and what has befallen you was not going to pass you by. And know that victory comes with patience, relief with affliction and ease with hardship."

[04/26/21]   The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “Seven people Allah will give them His Shade on the Day when there would be no shade but the Shade of His Throne (i.e., on the Day of Resurrection): And they are: a just ruler; a youth who grew up with the worship of Allah; a person whose heart is attached to the mosques, two men who love and meet each other and depart from each other for the sake of Allah; a man whom an extremely beautiful woman seduces (for illicit relation), but he (rejects this offer and) says: ‘I fear Allah'; a man who gives in charity and conceals it (to such an extent) that the left hand does not know what the right has given; and a man who remembers Allah in solitude and his eyes become tearful”.

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

[04/18/21]   Importance of guest in Islam
woman came to The Prophet ‎ﷺ and complained to him about her husband that he invites too many guests and she has become weary from preparing food for them and hosting them. The Prophet ‎ﷺ did not answer and the woman left.
Sometime later The Prophet ‎ﷺ called the woman’s husband and said, "I am your guest today."
The man was so happy he went home and told his wife "The Prophet of Allāh ‎ﷺ is our guest today."
His wife was ecstatic and spent time and effort and used every bit of food to prepare for the arrival of the Most Honored Guest, The Prophet ‎ﷺ.
After the amazing joy of hosting The Prophet ‎ﷺ generously, The Prophet ‎ﷺ told the man, "Tell your wife to watch the door from which I leave your home."
So the wife watched the door from which The Prophet ‎ﷺ left her home and saw all kinds of creatures, scorpions and other harmful creatures leaving the house behind The Prophet ‎ﷺ, upon which she fainted due to the immense manifestation and greatness of what she had witnessed.
When she came to The Prophet ‎ﷺ, he said to her, "This is what happens when the guest leaves your home, with him all kinds of harm, trials and tribulations and harmful creatures depart from your home, and that is the wisdom behind being generous to one’s guest and becoming weary doing so."
The house in which the guests are frequent and many is a house which Allāh ﷻ loves. There is nothing better than the ‘open house’ for the young and the old. In such a house descends Allāh’s ﷻ Mercy and Blessings from heaven.
The Prophet ‎ﷺ said, "If Allāh wants good for a people, He sends them a gift." They asked "What kind of gift, oh Prophet of Allāh?" He said, "The guest comes with his own provision, and leaves with the sins of the people of the house."
So my beloved, know that the guest is the way to Paradise. The Prophet ‎ﷺ said, "Whoever believes in Allāh and the Last Day must be generous with his guest."
