Al-Mujeeb - The Responsive
Allah (swt) says, "Pray to Me; I will respond to you." (Al-Ghafir: 60). When there's no one to listen and understand, Allah will always be there to listen and help. You can call upon Allah whenever and wherever you are, and Allah will always respond.
We find out from a hadith that there are three ways for a dua to be accepted. Prophet Muhammad ﷺ has said: "There is no Muslim who calls upon Allah, without sin or cutting family ties, but that Allah will give him one of three answers: He will quickly fulfill his supplication, He will store it for him in the Hereafter, or He will divert an evil from him similar to it." (Musnad Ahmad)
Just like Allah listens to us, we also must listen to and obey Allah. Allah (swt) says: "… so let them respond to Me [by obedience] and believe in Me that they may be [rightly] guided." (Al-Baqarah: 186)

Hajis will continue to be returning until the second week of August. Before they come back give your child a glimpse of this amazing journey by buying these unique Hajj puzzles 🧩 for them!
A first in Pakistan 🇵🇰
For ages 2yrs+
18 Dhul Hijjah was the day Uthman رضي الله عنه was martyred. The picture shared is of his grave in Jannatul-Baqi.
Right after Hijrah, Uthman رضي الله عنه bought The Well of Roma for the Muslims in Madinah to use for free. It was the only well which had continuously flowing cool water, but it's owner would charge for taking water from it thus it wasn't easily affordable for all. Hence once RasulAllah صلى الله عليه وسلم announced that Jannah is promised to whoever buys it, Uthman bought it in exchange for a fortune and made it waqf for the Muslims. This well is still present till today.
Hard times are a test as well as good times. Poverty is a test as well as affluence. Sometimes Allah is seeing whether we're patient and at other times He wants to see whether we're grateful. Are we still complaining even once we've gotten what we once so deeply desired? Or are we now trying to help others who are less blessed than us?
Reading the stories of the Sahabah, like Uthman رضي الله عنه, is important to learn how they made the best of their blessings and also how they were epitomes of patience in tougher times. May Allah be pleased with them.

"Inspired by the Quran and Sunnah" is a collection of true stories of change - not of the past, but of people from our very day and age. So many of us want to move on in our lives, leaving behind our troubles to embrace better versions of ourselves. But we don't understand... how?
These stories show us that the Quran and Sunnah really and truly do have the solutions to everything - there is an ayah or hadith for every problem possible.
🌻Learn how three different women, who desired to have children, miraculously conceived by implementing an ayah from Surah Nuh, a hadith on raising the orphan, and by following the hadith on liking for your fellow Muslim what you like for yourself.
🌻Find out how a young, beautiful, accomplished woman was able to overcome her frustration on not being able to get married and understand the wisdom behind it... until she actually did get married.
🌻Get to know how two women were able to lose their excess weight by following 2 ayaat of the Quran, how a person was able to give up smoking by following the hadith of the cave, and how the son of an elderly mother finally returned to her after 30 years of wandering astray.

Wishing everyone a blessed Eid ✨ Among all the joys and celebrations, let's make sure to spend some time and resources on those currently going through tough times; whether our family, friends, neighbors or the global Muslim Ummah. Call them, visit them and support and comfort them however you can.
Allah doesn't only test us through hardships, but also through ease. The test of the latter is to be of help and support to the former. Let us make this Eid a memorable one for as many as we can ♥️
A very common tactic of Shaitan is to make a person lose hope in Allah because of the injustices he/she is made to face at the hands of people.
But Allah taala was never the one who caused those people to be oppressive. Infact He's clearly stated:
"O My servants! I have forbidden oppression for Myself, and I have made it forbidden amongst you, so do not oppress one another." (Muslim)
He has conveyed to us through His Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم that He is on the side of the oppressed under all circumstances:
"Beware of the supplication of the oppressed, even if he is an unbeliever, for there is no barrier (between it and Allah)." (Musnad Ahmad)
For the very cause of justice He has kept a day when "the excuses of the unjust will not benefit them." (Ghafir: 52) The day both the oppressor and oppressed will be given what they deserve.
Remember, *it is people who oppress*, not Allah. So never let Shaitan break your connection with your forever partner through the journey of life, dearest Allah taala, because of something someone else did.
Fasts cut down on our food and drink. And Taraweeh cuts down on our sleep.
The reason behind this is that our nafs* is strengthened by eating too much, sleeping too much and of course misdeeds. (Madaarijus Saalikeen)
Through fasts and Taraweeh, Ramadan weakens our nafs and provides us with an ample opportunity to improve ourselves ✨.
*The voice of evil inside us, just like we have a voice of good too. Both can be strengthened, weakened or even terminated. (Surah Shams: Ayat 8)
Instead of specifying one month, Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala could have told us to fast any 30 random days of the year and just complete the count.
But He did specify a month and told all of us to fast it together. One of the reasons for this is that when we do things together we achieve a lot more. Our progress is quicker and easier.
Togetherness is important. Good company is important. And sticking to people who remind us of Allah and the purpose of our lives is also very important. Look for them and ask Allah for help. InshaAllah they won't be far.
