  1. Lying leads to hellfire You can deceive many people by presenting yourself with humility, respect, manners, and knowledge. You can gain a lot of friends by being fake. In fact, you can reach high levels of power and authority, by giving false promises and twisting the truth for your personal gain. You can do a lot of things with deception and lies, but you can never remain in that state forever. You can lie, but truth eventually will come out. You will end up in a state of embarrassment, and you will be among the losers, who will end up in hellfire. That's what lies are. They are no
  2. 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.
  3. 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 t
  4. "Knowledge is an ocean that has no coast." So if anyone thinks they know it all, then what they have is something besides knowledge. Keep swimming! It requires energy, dedication, sacrifice and continuity together with sincerity to acquire knowledge. Without an effort one cannot attain knowledge. Knowledge wipes the frost off our glass and allows us to see much clearer. The cycle of knowledge should be to keep on learning, putting into practice and conveying to others.
  5. Appreciate your parents A long time ago, there was a huge apple tree. A little boy loved to come and play around it everyday. He climbed to the treetop, ate the apples, and took a nap under the shadow. He loved the tree and the tree loved to play with him. Time went by, the little boy had grown up and he no longer played around the tree every day. One day, the boy came back to the tree and he looked sad. “Come and play with me”, the tree asked the boy. “I am no longer a kid, I do not play around trees any more” the boy replied. “I want toys. I need money to buy them.” “Sorry, bu
  6. Bismillah. Control your tongue Imam Ibn al-Qayyim al-Jawziyyah said, ”What is surprising is that a person finds it easy keeping away from things like consuming the haram (forbidden), oppression, adultery, theft, drinking alcohol and looking at the impermissible, but yet he finds it difficult to guard his tongue! It’s such that you’ll see a man who is viewed to be knowledgeable and is an ascetic worshiper but he speaks with words that bring the Wrath of Allah, without giving them a second thought. How often do you see a man who steers clear of evil sins and oppression but
  7. Bismillah. The end is bliss 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
  8. okey when are those lessons going to start? as iv got some one intrested from facebook.
  9. :wa: me too inshAllah. i will just put the link on facebook.
  10. When the Day of Resurrection comes, a man's wealth and capital will be his Hasanaat (good deeds). If he had done wrong to any people, they will take from his hasanaat to the extent that he mistreated them. If he does not have any hasanaat, or if his hasanaat run out, then some of their sayi`aat (bad deeds) will be taken and added to his burden. Bukhari narrated on the authority of Abu Hurayrah that the Messenger of Allah (p.b.u.h.) said: "Whoever wronged his brother with regard to his honor or any other matter, should seek his forgiveness today, before there are no longer any Dinars, or Dirh
  11. Allah will reward you greatly for your patience This is a message for every sister who didn't get married yet and is afraid of what people may say about her. Don’t worry dear sister, marriage is Rizq (provision) from Allah and He will surely grant it to you when He wills it and not when you want it. Don’t care of what people may say about you, remember that Maryam (‘alaiha salam) never got married and she is the only woman who has a whole Surah with her name! So if not having a husband is a defect, she wouldn't have been mentioned in Qur’an! Not getting married is not a flaw o
  12. Peace and humility or Madness (poem) Peace&Madness. The story of his presence will be told generation after generation until it becomes but a myth, a belief, a faith. Those who believe will cherish it like a legacy, ever fulfilling, ever lasting... And for those who choose to neglect and reject will suffer the urge in depth, to try and detect, the cause of this effect where darkness is a friend and light is a sketch. Confused and doomed, from questions they assume, that might lead to an understanding of whom they are.. Yet they strive to cry their eye to desire thei
  13. Prophet Muhammad (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: "O Aishah, abstain from the sins which are looked upon as trivial, for they too will be inquired about by Allah." [Musnad Ahmad, Nasa'i] Sins are termed as major or minor essentially because of their gravity in terms of their effects on individuals and society. Thus, some sins are considered most heinous and incur divine wrath. Among such sins are: shirk (associating partners with Allah), displeasing one’s parents, murder, bearing false testimony, adultery, fornication, practicing black magic, devouring riba (interest), stealing from an
  14. Here are some test questions to see how you are spending your time on earth. 1. What is one thing you love about being alive? 2. How would you finish this sentence: Thank God I'am ------------------? How long did it take you to answer each question? If you had to stop and think, you took too long. These answers should flow easily. If they don't, it is a sign you are not in touch with your heart and that it needs to be nourished. Now answer this question: When you look at the garden do you see the weeds or the flowers? If you had trouble with the answer, perhaps it is be
  15. The only way to stop any pain in your life is to accept the fact that nothing is yours, nothing was yours, and nothing will ever be yours. They are worldly attachments; given by ALLAH, belonging to ALLAH and returning back to ALLAH
  16. When we believe everything we hear, others can easily control us & we begin to lose track of good & bad, right & wrong. Infact nowadays even seeing is not always believing. It can be photo shopped, staged or edited. Don't movies look so real?
  17. When people refuse to spend in a good cause, perhaps their wealth is not fit enough to be accepted in that noble cause. Wealth earned through impure means is mostly used to disunite, create problems, sickness, hatred & enmity. The Almighty is pure & only accepts that which is pure. May He forgive us & grant us purity in our sustenance. Aameen.
  18. Often times we feel the urge to say whatever is on our minds. However, this is not necessarily the best character. Instead, we should strive to talk only good. "Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day should talk what is good or keep quiet." Therefore, if you don't have something nice to say, don't say it at all! (there may be exceptions to the rule, such as giving someone sincere advice and what not) (a reminder to myself first and foremost, in'sha'Allah.
  19. Although social networking sites & apps such as Facebook, Twitter etc are responsible for much irresponsibility and damage, casting people into loss, regret and darkness, I am quite convinced that we can all make ourselves responsible users of the same networks encouraging responsibility and building solid foundations, instilling high morals, removing people from darkness, showing them the light and how easy it is to tread upon the path of no regret, gaining as much as possible on their fingertips! It has never been easier to access people "sans frontiers" than this, so are we going to
  20. A small misunderstanding, minor dispute or problem automatically becomes a much bigger issue if it is not dealt with right away. Satan chisels into the smallest crack making it appear to be a crater simply because it was not filled when it first appeared. An intelligent person is he who tries to resolve matters as soon as possible rather than leave them to bubble in the hearts of people until they reach boiling point. The Prophet(saw)said, “The strong is not the one who overcomes the people by his strength, but the one who controls himself while in anger,’ (Bukhari).
  21. When things do not go exactly the way we wanted, when we do not achieve what we have tried so hard to or when we feel so let down by others then always know that for as long as we have faith & trust in the Almighty, He definitely has something better in store for us, has saved us from a calamity or disaster that would have been in our path or has elevated our status through surrendering to His Decree. We are not considered believers until we are pleased with the Decisions of the Almighty. This will save us from much anxiety & depression. Try your best & leave the rest to Him.
  22. The Messenger PBUH has told us that closer to the Last Day, time will pass by faster and faster. A year will feel like a month, a month like a week, a week like a day and a day like an hour. Amazingly we feel this prophecy today where the day goes by like a few minutes and before we realize, the week is over and then the month and the year too. This is why we must ensure that we make the most of every valuable second at hand. When we are not focused and have no proper goals in life, we waste our days and weeks, months and years in achieving nothing meaningful. Let us set clear goals, focus on
  23. Shame upon those men who oppress their wives. Giving preference to your friends over your wife is oppression. Screaming and yelling at your wife is oppression. Coming home late each night or coming to bed late each night without a valid excuse is oppression. Wasting time on the internet or phone, television or games whilst your wife is waiting for you is oppression. Not spending reasonable time with your wife is oppression. Not commending her upon her goodness, sacrifice and achievements whilst only harping on her weaknesses is oppression. Be fair! Not correcting her in th
  24. None of us are exempt from going through divorce or experiencing it in the lives of the best of our children or family members. Hence it is very important that we watch very carefully what we say about those who are divorced and how we treat them, speak to them or look at them. In many instances, two individually brilliant people divorce, not because one is bad but because together, they were unable to survive. This is proven by the fact that in many cases both are then very happily married to others. Remember, if your mouth or actions become hurtful to those divorced, there may co
  25. Visiting the sick, assisting them in any way, inquiring about them and praying for them has many benefits, hence it is considered a great act of worship. It boosts the morale of the sick, making them feel much better, giving them a sense of belonging which contributes to their recovery. The psychological impact of a kind word, a prayer and a visit is so great that the sick begin to feel much better and the greatest of miracles can occur even after medicine has given up. It also makes us realize the gift of health that the Almighty has bestowed upon us and gives us the opportunity t
