  1. The hope of a believer is in God The person whose hopes are in people will eventually be disappointed, but the one who places all his hopes in God, He will never be disappointed. His dreams will come to pass, and his life will flourish will blessings he never imagined. When we place our hopes in people we are doing it wrong. We shouldn't be surprised if all dreams come crashing because we relied on them. People will disappoint us because they are just people. They are created things. They have no power but to influence each moment as it passes with human limitations. They are all subject
  2. What does my future hold? All of us think and dream of the future. We want to live long happy lives with spouses and nice careers. We want many good things in life and envision a blissful life full of good things, while not realizing that this world is not perfect and is not meant for eternity, rather the hereafter is. Not only do we want good things, we want to be certain what our future holds. We thus turn to various forms of divination's such as reading tea-leaves, drawing lines, writing numbers, palm-reading, casting horoscopes, and other means to predict our future—all of which have m
  3. Envy refers to the desire that a person feels for the destruction or removal of a blessing that another person has – a destruction which the bearer of this feeling would himself carry out if he had the power to. This is quite different to wanting such blessings for oneself while not wishing for them to be removed from others, for that is, indeed, a positive and commendable desire that leads to competition. Competition is not considered blameworthy in general, rather it is considered to be praiseworthy if it is in pursuit of righteousness; Allaah Says (what means): "Indeed, the righteous will b
  4. The hard heart is that which contains a mixture of harshness and toughness; a heart that is void of submission and the sense of turning to Allah The Exalted in repentance at all times. This is the severest punishment ever. This is why the disbelievers are punished with having a hard and harsh heart. Maalik ibn Deenaar, May Allah Have mercy upon him, said in this regard, "Allah The Almighty Punishes the wrongdoers in their hearts and bodies as well. They are punished with a hard and miserable life and laziness and indolence in carrying out acts of worship. However, there is no punishment that
  5. Be thankful Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire. If you did, what would there be to look forward to? Be thankful when you don't know something, for it gives you the opportunity to learn. Be thankful for the difficult times. During those times you grow. Be thankful for your limitations, because they give you opportunities for improvement. ... Be thankful for your mistakes. They will teach you valuable lessons. Be thankful when you're tired and weary, because it means you've made a difference. It's easy to be thankful for the good things. A life of rich fulfilment
  6. "You forget to wake up for Fajr. You sleep through your alarm. You rush through Zuhr, then you’re too busy for Asr. Maghrib passes without you realizing, and then you stay up on your laptop, conveniently forgetting Isha. You have wasted one whole day. Astagfirullah, this is very sad. Nowadays, Shaitaan wins. Why can’t people just do it? It’s one of your obligation as a Muslim, Subhanallah. If only people know the sacrifices that the Prophet (saw) and his companion had done then maybe it will change. May Allah (swt) give us ability to fulfil His rights. Allahumma Ameen.
  7. Beautiful patience is to be content with adversity Beautiful patience is to surrender to the will of Allah Beautiful patience is to refrain from complaining Beautiful patience is to be grateful Indeed, as beautiful as Prophet Yusuf (as)patience in facing all the test that Allah send down .
  8. Our faith sometimes weakens and we become overwhelmed by our desires. The shaytaan makes sin attractive to us, so we fall into things that Allah ‘azza wajal has forbidden. Now the question is not whether or not you will sin, because mistakes are in fact part of our nature. The question is: what will you do after you’ve sinned? --------------------------------------------------------------------...------ Repentance— an Opportunity! The concept of tawbah is amazingly beautiful and unique in Islam. We don’t confess to any intermediary; we turn to our Creator directly. Allah al-Ghaffaar opened
  9. Whenever you are faced with the burden of a difficulty, lighten it by remembering three things: 1. That it is only temporary. Nothing in this life is forever. Neither your happiness nor your pain. It will soon come to pass. 2. That it has been predestined. Nothing you think you could or could not have done would have avoided it. It was meant to get to u. It is all part of a bigger & better plan for you. 3. Thirdly, seek comfort in the fact that if you bear this with acceptance and patience then you will be rewarded greatly for the suffering you are enduring.. Allahu Akbar!
  10. It's rare to come across souls who truly understand you. Someone who can understand your pain, share your problems with, share your feelings with. Someone who can heal your wounds. And as humans, when we come across someone who does, who does make us feel better; we tend to rely on them to make us happy. We get attached. We see it as if, as if, we need them in our lives. How long will som...eone keep making you feel better? How long can actually someone keep listening to your problems without getting annoyed? Be a shoulder for you to cry on? days, weeks, months, even years .. but eventuall
  11. Weakness of Faith by Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel Saheb (rahmatullah alayh) Dealing with various cases every day of our lives, we find something which has become so common is the type of statements that people utter when they are in difficulties, hardships, pain and suffering. …There is just no contemplation, no reflection, no thought – just immediate criticism of Allah Ta’ala’s system and ‘government’ - as we will say. Some question Allah Ta’ala’s wisdom and say: ‘What kind of Allah is this that He has done such injustice to me!’ (Na’uzu Billah) People actually use
  12. Haji Farooq Saheb ra senior Khalifa of Hadrat Maulana Maseehullah Saheb had mentioned, If a person visits a certain country and sees a beautiful plant, he may desire to take it home. However, there are certain aspects that are of concern to him. The first concern is, Will it grow in his country? There are certain plants that grow in one country but not in another country. The climate doesn’t allow growth. Secondly, Will he be permitted to import it? Certain countries have strict import regulations. Plants from other countries cannot be imported. Thirdly, Will he be able to transport t
  13. Deal with your ego In order to make your marriage work, you should try to cut down on your desires, deal with your ego and stop criticizing on small things that are not part of the bigger picture. You can't expect the person to change for you and expect the impossible from them. Even with very little common ground, you can achieve happiness, if that is what you are aiming for. You have to look at your self. Are your desires a mere want or a necessity. Are your desires driven by your ego or by your intellect. Are what you want realistic. Are you willing to offer as much as you ask? Often ti
  14. Patience is your friend Know, that the beginning of the path is patience, and its end is thankfulness. Its beginning is difficulty, and its end is bliss. Its beginning is toil and weariness, and its end is opening, unveiling and arrival at the ultimate goal which is gnosis of God, arrival to Him, being comforted by Him, and standing in His noble presence. The one who makes gracious patience the foundation of all his affairs turns to every goodness, reaches everything that he hopes for, and wins all that he seeks. How can you lay claim to faith, when you have no patience at all. Surely you
  15. Are you in an abusive relationship? Seek help. You can do it! We had our first argument last night, and he said a lot of cruel things that really hurt me. I know he is sorry and didn't mean the things he said, because he sent me flowers today. I got flowers today. It wasn't our Anniversary or any other special day. Last night he threw me into a wall and started to choke me. It seemed like A nightmare, I couldn't believe it was real. I woke up this morning sore and bruised all over. I know he must be sorry cause he sent me flowers today. I got flowers today, and it wasn't mother's day or
  16. Shaytan refused to prostrate only once, and became the accursed one. So how about the human who refuses to prostrate for days, or years?
  17. Oh Allah ! I told You I’m in pain You said: “do not despair of the mercy of Allah.” (Al-Quran 39:53) I told You nobody knows what is in my heart You said: “Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest.” (Al-Quran 13:28) I told You many people hurt me You said: “So pardon them and ask forgiveness for them” (Al-Quran 3:1) I told You I feel I’m alone... You said: “We are closer to him than [his] jugular vein.” (Al-Quran 50:16) I told You my sins are so many You said: “and who can forgive sins except Allah?” (Al-Quran 3:135) I told You do not leave me You said: “So remember Me; I w
  18. There are two kinds of true victory. Neither one includes material wealth, which is fleeting and ultimately meaningless: “Whatever you have will end, but what Allah has is lasting. And We will surely give those who were patient their reward according to the best of what they used to do.” - Quran 16:96 ... The first true victory is spiritual success. That is recognizing Allah’s guidance, following it, sticking to it, and being grateful for it. It’s a victory because it helps us to live lives of meaning and purpose, and to be peaceful and patient. The second victory is Jannah (Paradise)
  19. The greatest blessings. To love Allah, to know Him intimately, to remember Him constantly, to find peace and rest in Him, to make Him alone the [ultimate] object of love, fear, hope and trust; to base one’s act on His control of His servant’s cares, aspirations and will - such is the world’s Heaven, and such is a blessing with which NO other blessing can compare.
  20. “Don’t think of the trials in your life (‘balaa’) as just a ‘test’ in the human form. Allah is not like a professor who hands you a test, moves away and just watches from afar to see how you’ll do. Allah is our murabee—the One who raises us with more mercy than a mother raises a child. The Prophet (pbuh) tells us that when Allah wills good for someone, he sends them ‘balaa’ (trials or tests). When...… Allah wills good for us, He purifies us. That is why each person is tested in what they love most. In other words our greatest possible ‘competitor’ in our love for God is what is withheld or mus

  22. One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry. He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door. Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water. She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly, and then asked, "How much do I owe you?" "You don't owe me anything," she replied. "Mother has taught us never to accept pay for a kindness." He said..... "Then I thank you from my heart."
