  1. When you are overwhelmed and ready to give up, take one last push by seeking Allah's help. Sometimes, we are so focused on the task at hand, that we forget where the real source of strength comes from. Remember, when we face a problem together with Allah, the problem merely becomes an instrument of success. Know your priorities and the source of all your strength. Indeed my strength is in Allah, and my hope is from Allah, and my future depends on Allah. I will always seek things from Him, and I will always be satisfied of the outcome! [F.D]
  2. Why do we suffer. Is there a purpose to all the suffering and hardships in your life? Certainly, as Allah has told us that no believer will be left with just saying I believe. [29:2] Do the people think that they will be left to say, "We believe," without being put to the test? [29:3] We have tested those before them, for God must distinguish those who are truthful, and He must expose the liars. [2:155] We will surely test you through some fear, hunger, and loss of money, lives, and crops. Give good news to the steadfast. To pass the test, the believer must maintain his trust that God o
  3. Live a fulfilling life Don't wait to pray to Allah until you are overwhelmed with hardships, instead, pray to Allah during times of ease as well. A simple "Thank You" to Allah during times of ease is greater than many prayers during times of distress. Know your priorities, fulfill your duties, and never lose focus in your ultimate destination. Ignore falsehood, embrace the truth, and be a fountain of knowledge for others. Be a Muslim of faith, of peace, and of obedience. Embrace the will of Allah. Keep Him with every step you take. Choose Him over anything. And never do to others what you
  4. Do not lose your trust in Allah even in the darkest of times How many of us are stumbling in the dark, or sitting quietly in despair, not knowing where to turn? How many have giant boulders blocking our progress, preventing us from living happy lives? How many are stuck, immobilized like fish in a net? Sometimes we are so frustrated at our situations that we don't see that our problems themselves are tests and opportunities given by Allah. To develop as human beings, to become better people and move closer to Allah, we must experience hardships. That is a fundamental principle of our creat
  5. Fear of reality The biggest fear people have, and the one most important to overcome, is the fear of facing up to reality. People would rather live an illusion than wake up to reality. Why? Because if reality turns out to be something different than what we’re used to, it means having to change our course in life. And that hurts! We all choose to escape, now and then, from the effort that is involved in accomplishing life’s goals and ambitions. We all want to be great; we all want to change the world. It’s just that we don’t always feel like putting forth the effort. So we distract ours
  6. 1. Hadhrat Hasan Basri's mother was a servant of Rasulullah's ( صلى الله عايه وسالم) noble wife, Hadhrat Umm-e-Salmah (radhiyallahu anha). Sometimes during infancy when his mother was engaged in some service, he would cry. To pacify the infant, Hadhrat Umm-e-Salmah (radhiyallahu anha) would place her blessed breast in his mouth. The baby would suck and miraculously milk would emerge. It is said that the innumerable blessings acquired by Hadhrat Hasan Basri were the product of this milk of the holy household of Rasulullah ( صلى الله عايه وسالم) . Hadhrat Umm-e-Salmah (radhiyallahu anha)undertoo
  7. The Question of Hijab: Suppression Or Liberation? "Why do Muslim women have to cover their heads?" This question is one which is asked by Muslim and non-Muslim alike. For many women it is the truest test of being a Muslim. The answer to the question is very simple - Muslim women observe HIJAB (covering the head and the body) because Allah has told them to do so. "O Prophet, tell your wives and daughters and the believing women to draw their outer garments around them (when they go out or are among men). That is better in order that they may be known (to be Muslims) and not annoy
  8. Forced Marriages Imam Ibn Taymiyyah Fatwa from "Al-Masa'il ul-Mardiniyyah" Translated by Abu `Abdullah Muhammad al-Jibali May a father force his virgin daughter who attained puberty to marry? Two well-known opinions in this regard are reported from Ahmad: That he may compel her. This is also the opinion of Malik, ash-Shafi`i, and others. That he may not. This is also the opinion of Abu Hanifah and others, and is the correct one. People have differed as tot he reason permitting the compulsion: whether it is virginity, the daughter being under-aged, or a combinati
  9. Marriage Prof. 'Abdur Rahman I. Doi Professor and Director, Center for Islamic Legal Studies, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaira, Nigeria. Importance of Marriage in Islam Allah has created men and women as company for one another, and so that they can procreate and live in peace and tranquility according to the commandments of Allah and the directions of His Messenger. The Quran says: "And among His signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that you may dwell in tranquility with them, and He has put love and mercy between your hearts. Undoubtedly in
  10. God's way When you have exhausted all your ways, when you have used all your resources, when you have stumbled across a new journey which is dim, isolated and full of thorns; you may be hopeless, but remember, there is always His way. He has purposefully closed all doors and made them difficult to lead you to the best place. A place full of blessings, love, humility, and guidance. That place is the moment you turned with abundant worship of Him. You tried all you could, you failed in your ways, yet He allowed you to go to Him. This journey is your purpose. This is your goal. You may onl
  11. In God is my strength If my love is attached to Thee Then from sin I will be free Each time my heart will beat Your name will resound with heat With your name shivers my each limb They seek to be released from whim Allah, Allah, is my hearts speech Your Mercy is what I beseech The Most Merciful keep me content With all that You have sent Keep in my heart Your remembrance And in Your deen and love allow me to advance Help me in my quest Permit me to pass the ultimate test Save me from the clutches of Shaitan Give me death upon Imaan. Proud Musli
  12. Depression As you travel life's journey, you can take the road from depression to fullness of life. The way out of your depression and onto the road to fullness of life, starts by you entering the presence of the true God; the Almighty God. God is in the pit with you right now. He is ready and willing to speak to you, to bring His change to your life, and to give you hope. If you look for Him, He will be found by you. He was there all the time. All you must do is ask Him to help you. He will take you from the solitude of your darkness and bring you into the light of His lov
  13. Knowledge is an ocean with no coast, so those who arrive at a coast or think they know everything have something besides knowledge.
  14. Embrace each difficulty with belief in God Once you've finished attempting to answer the questions of life, you will notice new questions will arise. Instead, learn to accept what befalls you. Know it is better for you. And repeat: "Allah has decreed (this) and He does whatever He wills." Abu Hurayrah (ra) reports that Allah's Messenger (saw) said, "The strong believer is more loved by Allah than the weak believer, but in both there is good. Be zealous for what will benefit you. Seek help from Allah the Mighty and Majestic and do not become incapacitated. If something afflicts you,
  15. Think, Reflect & Act Upon It. The good you find in others, is in you too. The faults you find in others are your faults as well. After all, to recognize something you must know it. The possibilities you see in others, are possible for you as well. The beauty you see around you is your beauty. The world around you is a reflection, a mirror showing you the person you are. To change your world, you must change yourself. See the best in others, and you will be your best. Give to others, and you will give to yourself. Appreciate beauty, and you will be beautiful. Admire creat
  16. yes you can my brother,as islam dont have copyright it belongs to everybody.
  17. Being Gentle...like a butterfly The idea of being a stoned face, mysterious individual with a sense of firmness sounds appealing to some; when this type of character exudes from a person, a sense of dominance can emanate from within the heart. This eventually leads one to become ill mannered and arrogant which in turn changes a person into a prideful being. As a result, this firmness which seemed to be awe inspiring has now taken a person to the banks of Jahannam. It is for this reason that Rasulullah salallahu alayhi wasallam said, "Harshness does not exist in something except that it
  18. Infatuation in Islam - Identifying the Problem. Recently, I have heard the word infatuation being used a lot. I began thinking about what ‘infatuation’ exactly is from an Islamic point of view. I then thought about the difference between infatuation and a mere liking of someone. Slowly but surely, by the grace of Allah Ta’ala, I began to write this article. This article will largely deal with the feeling of infatuation upon the other gender. According to the dictionary, the word infatuation is defined as ‘an intense but short-lived passion or admiration for someone or somethin
  19. Loving Good For Your Brothers. The following was taken from a lecture given by Habib Ali al-Jifri A sign that you have begun to love good for others is that you will want the greatest good in your relationship with your brothers who are near to you. If you see that Allah (SW) singles out one of your brothers with a particular blessing, either worldly or religious, it is incumbent that you search deep into your heart and find feelings of sincere happiness for him. It is stated in a hadith, "None of you truly believes until he loves for his brother that which he loves for himself." A sig
  20. Mufti menk is in Makkah and this took place just today. subhanAllah
  21. Maa shaa Allah, heavy rainfall in Makkah just as we complete Maghrib. Drenched & soaked. Alhamdulillah May the Almighty wash away our sins forgive us all. Aameen
  22. Seeking the forgiveness of the Almighty very often, raises ones rank, eases difficulties, increases sustenance, purifies the heart, attains blessings, protects from sin, cures from disease, increases piety, fulfills our needs, grants goodness in offspring, makes obedience easy, achieves the Pleasure of the Almighty & results ultimately in entry into paradise. The Messenger pbuh himself sought forgiveness between seventy to a hundred times DAILY. Astaghfirullah. I seek your forgiveness Oh my Maker. Oh You whom I shall return to forgive my shortcomings. Aameen.
  23. I love those whose popularity, wealth, knowledge or success makes them humble & remember those who stood by them before they got there.
  24. Ponder On True Victory. 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 sec
