:: No April Fools Day ::


: No April Fools Day ::


The Prophet (صلى الله عليه واله وسلم) said,
...
"Whoever has the following four (characteristics) will be a pure hypocrite and whoever has one of the following four characteristics will have one characteristic of hypocrisy unless and until he gives it up.

1. Whenever he is entrusted, he betrays.
(( 2. Whenever he speaks, he tells a lie. ))
3. Whenever he makes a covenant, he proves treacherous.
4. Whenever he quarrels, he behaves in a very imprudent, evil and insulting manner.

"I Love You..." | The Three words which could lead you to Paradise or Hell !!!

"I Love You..." | The Three words which could lead you to Paradise or Hell !!!
--------------------------


Perhaps these three words are the most favorite words in today's world.

Many of the famous songs, poems, paintings, architectures have been made just because of this LOVE!!

Many have committed suicide for the sake of LOVE!!

Many have spoiled their life, in the way of drugs just because of LOVE!!

Many have committed illegal sex in the name of LOVE!!

So many new strange relations are now daily parts of our life for the sake of LOVE:
boy-friend, girl-friend, ex-boyfriend, ex-girlfriend, breakup.....
and the list goes on...
Allah knows, what else will we see!!

Lets imagine an interview with a Muslim who has boyfriend or girlfriend.....
#########
#Q) Are you Muslim?
Ans) Yes! I am a Muslim.

#Q) Do you believe in Allah?
Ans) What sort of stupid question is this!! Off-course I do!

#Q) Do you know Islam means "surrender" to Allah?
Ans) Yeah! I know that.

#Q) Do you believe, doing those act, which is prohibited in Islam is a serious sin; and it could lead you to Hell, unless Allah forgives you?
Ans) Look I all know these stuffs. You are wasting my time!

#Q) Do you know, Islam doesn't allow any relations in male-female prior than marriage?
Ans) Yes ! I know. I know!! What else you want to ask!

#Q) Do you have a girlfriend or a boyfriend?
Ans) A..h...h!! Umm..mm!!

#Q) How come this is possible, even knowing all of these you are breaking the rules of Allah? But you have said, you are a Muslim. And Muslim means, "surrender to Allah". Are you really surrendering completely??
Ans)....................................
..Next Question please!!

#########

This could be a just imaginary interview. But that random person could be you!
And in today's world, it is very likely most of us are like that.

But do you know, "I Love You.." could also lead you to Jannah?
How come??!!!

It's better to quote the hadiths directly:
Abu Hurayra reported that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "Allah Almighty will say on the Day of Rising, 'Where are those who loved one another for the sake of My majesty? Today, on the day when there is no shade but My shade, I will shade them.'"
[Muslim Shareef]


So, it is indeed true, if you want to love anyone just for the sake of ALLAH; not the sake of LOVE, saying "I Love You...." will lead you to Jannah.....


Love no one. But Love everyone, only for the sake of Allah!
Be Muslim!
Not by word!
But by Heart! By act!! By any and all means!!!
Be Muslim!!

Remember,
Love no one. But Love everyone, only for the sake of Allah!...



---------------------------------
And a big love for all of you, only to share the knowledge, for the sake of Allah...:) ♥

The Minor Signs of the Last Day


The Minor Signs of the Last Day

Qiyamah will come when...

Hadhrat Abu Musa Ash'ari (R.A.) narrates that Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alayhii Wassallam) said, "Qiyamah will come...

When it will be regarded as a shame to act on Quranic injunctions.

When untrustworthy people will be regarded as trustworthy and the trustworthy will be regarded as untrustworthy.

When it will be hot in winter.

When the length of days is stretched, i.e. a journey of a few days is covered in a matter of hours.

When orators and lecturers lie openly.

When people dispute over petty issues.

When women with children come displeased on account of them bearing offspring, and barren women remain happy on account of having no responsibility of offspring.

When oppression, jealousy, and greed become the order of the day.

When people blatantly follow their passions and whims.

When lies prevail over the truth.

When violence, bloodshed and anarchy become common.

When immorality overtakes shamelessness and is perpetrated publicly.

When legislation matters pertaining to Deen is handed over to the worst elements of the Ummat, and if people accept them and are satisfied with their findings, then such persons will not smell the fragrance of Jannat.

When the offspring become a cause of grief and anger (for their parents).


The following is part of a lengthy Hadith narrated by Hadhrat Abdullah Ibn Mas'ood (R.A.) when he inquired from Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wassallam) about the Signs of Qiyamah.

Music and musical instruments will be found in every home.

People will indulge in homosexuality.

There will be an abundance of illegitimate children.

There will be an abundance of critics, tale-carriers, back- biters and taunters in society.

People will establish ties with strangers and sever relations with their near and dear ones.

Hypocrites will be in control of the affairs of the community and evil, immoral people will be at the helm of business establishments.

The Masjid will be decorated, but the hearts of the people will be devoid of guidance.

The courtyards of Masjids will be built beautifully and high mimbars (pulpits) will be erected.

Gangsters and evil people will prevail.

Various wines will be consumed excessively.


Auf bin Malik (R.A.) says: I came to Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) while he was in his skin tent during the Tabuk expedition. He said to me, "Count six things before the advent of Qiyamah:

1 My death
2 The conquest of Jerusalem
3 Mass deaths amongst you people, just as when sheep die in large numbers during an epidemic
4 Abundance of wealth to such an extent that if a person were to be given a hundred Dinars he will still not be satisfied
5 General anarchy and bloodshed, that no Arab household will be spared from it
6 Then a life of peace as a result of a peace agreement between you and the Banil Asfaar
(Romans) which they will break and attack you with a force consisting of eighty flags and under each flag will be an army of twelve thousand men." (Hadith: Sahih Bukhari).

IRAQ and SYRIA

Abu Nadhrah says: "We were sitting in the company of Jabir bin Abdullah (R.A.) when he said: 'Soon the people of IRAQ will neither receive any food (grain) nor any money.'" We asked, "Why would such a thing happen?" He replied, "Because of the non-Arabs." (i.e they will prevent food from going into Iraq, in the form of "sanctions" to this day.) He then said: "Soon the people of Shaam (SYRIA) will neither receive any money nor grain." We asked as to why this would happen. He replied: "Because of the Romans (christians)."

CONCEITED PEOPLE:

Hadhrat Abbas (R.A) narrates that Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wassallam) has said, "Islam will spread far and wide, across the seas. Horses will cross the land and seas in the cause of Jihaad. Then a time will come wherein a group of people will emerge which recites the Quraan. They will claim,

'We have recited the Quraan and is there anyone who understands the Quraan better than us? There is NO ONE more proficient than us in the study of the Quraan.'

Then Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wassallam) asked the Sahaba, "Do you see any good in their claims?" The Sahaba replied, "No". Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wassallam) said, "But these conceited claimants will be from my Ummah and will be the fuel of the Fire."

The 6 rights of a Muslim upon another Muslim"

The 6 rights of a Muslim upon another Muslim"


It has been narrated from Hazrat Ali[RAi that the Holy Prophet[SAW] said,

"Commonly in Islam there are six rights of a Muslim upon a Muslim:
1) when he meets him he should give him salaam
2) when he invites him (to a meal) he should accept it
3) when he sneezes he should bless him
4) when he falls ill he should visit him
5) when he dies he should accompany his funeral and
6) he should prefer for him that which he prefers for himself."

Start doing all of these from today brothers. Simply start by saying Salam :)

beware dear Sisters Fear Allah SWT..


Praise be to Allaah.

The point of reference for Islamic rulings must be the texts of the Qur’aan and Sunnah, not one’s own opinion, mood, desire or ideas about what is nice. Concerning this very issue many reports have been narrated which strictly forbid this (women wearing perfume when they go out). These reports include saheeh ahaadeeth in which the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) forbade women to wear perfume when they go out of their houses:

Abu Moosa al-Ash’ari said: the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Any woman who puts on perfume then passes by people so that they can smell her fragrance, is an adulteress.”

Zaynab al-Thaqafiyyah reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “If any one of you (women) goes out to the mosque, let her not touch any perfume.”

Abu Hurayrah said: the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Any woman who has scented herself with bakhoor (incense), let her not attend ‘Ishaa’ prayers with us.”

Moosa ibn Yassaar said that a woman passed by Abu Hurayrah and her scent was overpowering. He said, “O female slave of al-Jabbaar, are you going to the mosque?” She said, “Yes,” He said, “And have you put on perfume because of that?” She said, “Yes.” He said, “Go back and wash yourself, for I heard the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say: ‘If a woman comes out to the mosque and her fragrance is overpowering, Allaah will not accept any prayer from her until she goes home and washes herself.’”

The reason for this prohibition is quite clear, which is that women’s fragrance may cause undue provocation of desires. The scholars also included other things under this heading of things to be avoided by women who want to go to the mosque, such as beautiful clothes, jewellery that can be seen, excessive adornments and mingling with men. See Fath al-Baari, 2/279.

Ibn Daqeeq al-‘Eed said:

This indicates that it is forbidden for a woman who wants to go to the mosque to wear perfume, because this causes provocation of men’s desires. This was reported by al-Manaawi in Fayd al-Qadeer, in the commentary on the first hadeeth of Abu Hurayrah quoted above.

Having examined all this saheeh evidence, there can be no room for debate or argument. Muslim women have to understand the seriousness of the issue and the sin involved in going against this shar’i ruling. They should remember that they are going out to seek reward, not to fall into sin. We ask Allaah to keep us safe and sound.

By the way, we recently read that biologists have discovered a sexual gland in the nose, i.e., there is a direct connection between the sense of smell and the provocation of desire. If this is true, then it is one of the signs that prove even to the kuffaar how precise are the rulings of this sharee’ah which came to preserve chastity and to block the ways that lead to immorality.

Salathul "Istikhara"

"Istikhara" means to seek goodness from Allah (Exalted is He), meaning when one intends to do an important task they do istikhara before the task. The one who does the istikhara is as if they request Allah Almighty that, O the Knower of Unseen (Exalted is He) guide me if this task is better for me or not?

According to Bukhari, Volume 2, Book 21, Number 263:

Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah :The Prophet (Sallal Laho Alaihi Wasallam) used to teach us the way of doing Istikhara, in all matters as he taught us the Suras of the Quran. He said, "If anyone of you thinks of doing any job he should offer a two Rakat prayer other than the compulsory ones and say (after the prayer):
اللَّهُم إِني أَسْتَخِيرُكَ بعِلْمِكَ ، وأستقدِرُكَ بقُدْرِتك ، وأَسْأَلُكَ مِنْ فضْلِكَ العَظِيم ، فإِنَّكَ تَقْدِرُ ولا أَقْدِرُ ، وتعْلَمُ ولا أَعْلَمُ ، وَأَنتَ علاَّمُ الغُيُوبِ . اللَّهُمَّ إِنْ كنْتَ تعْلَمُ أَنَّ هذا الأمرَ خَيْرٌ لي في دِيني وَمَعَاشي وَعَاقِبَةِ أَمْرِي » أَوْ قالَ : « عَاجِلِ أَمْرِي وَآجِله ، فاقْدُرْهُ لي وَيَسِّرْهُ لي، ثمَّ بَارِكْ لي فِيهِ ، وَإِن كُنْتَ تعْلمُ أَنَّ هذَا الأَمْرَ شرٌّ لي في دِيني وَمَعاشي وَعَاقبةِ أَمَرِي » أَو قال : « عَاجِل أَمري وآجِلهِ ، فاصْرِفهُ عَني ، وَاصْرفني عَنهُ، وَاقدُرْ لي الخَيْرَ حَيْثُ كانَ ، ثُمَّ رَضِّني بِهِ »  

Transliteration:
Allahumma inni astakheeroka bi ilmik. Wa'astaq-diroka biqodratik. Wa'as'aloka min fadlikal-azeem. Fa'innaka taqdiru wala aqdir. Wata lamo wala-a lam. Wa'anta-allamul ghuyoob.
Allahumma in kunta ta lamu anna (hathal-amra*) khayul-lee fi deenee wama ashi wa ajila amri wa'ajilah, faqdorho lee, wayassirho lee, thomma-barik lee fih. Wa'in konta ta lamo anna (hathal-amra*) sharrul-lee fi deenee. Wama ashi. Wa ajila amri. Wa'ajilaho. Fasrifho annee. Wasrifnee anh. Waqdur leyal-khayr haytho kan. Thomma ardini bih.

Translation:
Oh Allah! I seek Your guidance by virtue of Your knowledge, and I seek ability by virtue of Your power, and I ask You of Your great bounty. You have power; I have none. And You know; I know not. You are the Knower of hidden things.
Oh Allah! If in Your knowledge, (this matter*) is good for my religion, my livelihood and my affairs, immediate and in the future, then ordain it for me, make it easy for me, and bless it for me. And if in Your knowledge, (this matter*) is bad for my religion, my livelihood and my affairs, immediate and in the future, then turn it away from me, and turn me away from it. And ordain for me the good wherever it may be, and make me content with it.

WAY TO PERFORM ISTIKHARA:First pray Two Cycles (raka') of ritual Prayer (nafil) such that in the first raka' after Surah Fatiha (Allhamd…) recite Surah al-Kafirun (Chapter 109) and in the second raka' after Fatiha (Allhamd…) recite Surah al-Ikhlas (Chapter 112). After finishing prayer recite this (supplication/dua')
* When making the du'a, the actual matter or decision should be mentioned instead of the words "hathal-amra" ("this matter").

Misconceptions of Tablighi Jamaat

The name "jamat-tabligh" is not the name of this work and it is wrong to assume that this is a separate sect in islam.

The reviver of Tabligh in this specific form Moulana Muhammad Ilyas (Ramatullahi Alayhi) [d.1944] is reported to have said; "If I had to give this work/movement a name I would have given it the name "The reviver of iman".

---A brief introduction---
Tableegh literally means 'to convey'. Contextually, it refers to conveying the message of Islam. This is the sunnah of all the prophets. The most important rule of tableegh is hikmah. Allah Ta'ala says in the Holy Quran:

ادع إلى سبيل ربك بالحكمة والموعظة الحسنة

Invite (people) to the way of your lord with wisdom and good counsel.

(Verse: 16:125)

Whosoever does tableegh must adopt hikmah. It is only then, that people will understand and accept.

The system conducted by the Tableegh Jama'at was initiated by Moulana Ilyas Saheb (Rahimahullah). He observed that people were too engrossed in their worldly activities and had forgotten the objective for which they had been sent to this world. He realised that they had to free some time from their worldly engagements, to sit and ponder about Allah Ta'ala and their purpose for being sent to this world. Therefore, he started calling people to the masjid, and reminded them about Allah Ta'ala and His greatness. Initially people rebuked him, they discouraged him and used to say that they had no time for all of this; but as time went by, they realised the truth behind it and the need for it, and started joining him in calling others towards Allah Ta'ala. Thereafter, when more people started joining this work, a few guidelines had to be set, to make sure that the work was done in a proper manner. Different time periods of 3 days, 40 days, etc. were set, so that people knew for how long they had to be away, and could make the necessary arrangements for that period.

---Their beliefs and objectives---
Those that are engaged in the work of tableegh are from the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama'ah. They do not have any beliefs that are exclusive to them. Each one is allowed to follow his own mazhab, as long as he does not move away from the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama'ah.

Their objective is that each and every Muslim adopts the Islamic way in all aspects of life. They do not advice anyone to leave all their daily activities and join this work, but they encourage people to take out some time from their daily engagements so that the rest of the time could be spent in accordance to the teachings of Islam. Spending time in the path of Allah is not the objective of the work, but rather the objective is to adopt the Islamic lifestyle whilst engaged in daily activities, whether one is at home with family or at his work place; spending time in the path of Allah Ta'ala only acts as a means to fulfil this objective

Shaking Hands

Shaking Hands



A British man came to Sheikh and asked: Why it is not permissible in Islam for a woman to shake hand with a man? 
The Sheikh said: Can you shake hand with Queen Elizabeth? 
British man said: Of course not, there are only certain people who can shake hand with Queen Elizabeth. 
Sheikh replied: Our women are Queens and Queens do not shake hands with strange men.

10 Causes That Remove Punishment For A Sin


Shaykh ul Islam Ibn Taymiyyah, may Allah have mercy on him, said:
The punishment for a sin committed by a believer is removed in ten ways:

1. He repents to Allah (taubah), so Allah accepts his repentance, for the one who repents from sin is like the one who has no sin.

2. He seeks forgiveness from Allah (istighfar), so Allah forgives him.

3. He does good deeds that erase his sin for good deeds erase bad ones.

4. His believing brethren pray for him or seek forgiveness for his sins during his life or death.

5. Or they [ask Allah] to bestow on him as gift from the reward for their deeds, with which Allah benefits him.

6. His Prophet Muhammad, sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam, intercedes for him.

7. Allah tests him with trials in this world which expiate his sin.

8. Allah tests him in al-Barzakh (the intermediate life in the grave, between the death and the Day of Judgment) which expiates his sin.

9. Allah tests him in the various stages of the Day of Judgment which expiates his sins.

10. Or the Most Merciful of those who have mercy has mercy on him.

Whoever, then, is missed by these ten cannot blame anyone but himself

Your final destination is your grave
This travel of yours in this world
Will last for just two days

All this wealth will be of no us
All these luxuries will bring no escape
Your final bed is your grave
And still you are not afraid

All the rich and poor will stand side by side
All the powerful and the weak will be side by side
Your wealth will take you no where
Your money might just bring more despair.

This small grave of yours,
Is in fact your real destination, your real home.
Where you will be asked about your travel,
Your God, your prophet and your life

Haven’t you witnessed any death?
Haven’t you ever buried the deceased?
Yet you are not afraid of that time
That moment when you will be questioned about your belief

Open your eyes and look around
Look at all those who have passed.
This is your first and last chance,
Your only chance to work for the time that lasts

SURA KAHF.

سم الله الرحمان الرحيم
السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته
الحمد الله



 ASSALAMUALIKUM TO ALL OF U ! INSHALLAH HAVE A BLESSED JUMMAH N DONT FORGET TO READ SURA KAHF !MAY ALLAH BLESS ALL OF US N ACCEPT OUR SINCERE REPENTANCE , INSHALLAH AMEEN ! pARWEEZA


Imam Ahmad recorded from Abu Ad-Darda' that the Prophet said:

«مَنْ حَفِظَ عَشْرَ آيَاتٍ مِنْ أَوَّلِ سُورَةِ الْكَهْفِ عُصِمَ مِنَ الدَّجَّال»

(Whoever memorizes ten Ayat from the beginning of Surat Al-Kahf will be protected from the Dajjal.) This was also recorded by Muslim, Abu Dawud, An-Nasa'i and At-Tirmidhi.


According to the version recorded by At-Tirmidhi,
«مَنْ حَفِظَ ثَلَاثَ آيَاتٍ مِنْ أَوَّلِ الْكَهْف»
(Whoever memorizes three Ayat from the beginning of Al-Kahf.) He said, it is "Hasan Sahih. ''



In his Mustadrak, Al-Hakim recorded from Abu Sa`id that the Prophet said:

«مَنْ قَرَأَ سُورَةَ الْكَهْفِ فِي يَوْمِ الْجُمُعَةِ أَضَاءَ لَهُ مِنَ النُّورِ مَا بَيْنَهُ وَبَيْنَ الْجُمُعَتَيْن»

(Whoever recites Surat Al-Kahf on Friday, it will illuminate him with light from one Friday to the next.) Then he said: "This Hadith has a Sahih chain.''


Al-Hafiz Abu Bakr Al-Bayhaqi also recorded it in his Sunan from Al-Hakim, then he narrated with his own chain that the Prophet said:

«مَنْ قَرَأَ سُورَةَ الْكَهْفِ كَمَا نَزَلَتْ، كَانَتْ لَهُ نُورًا يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَة»

(Whoever recites Surat Al-Kahf as it was revealed, it will be a light for him on the Day of Resurrection.)


First Ten Verses of Surah Al-Kahf:
بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَـنِ الرَّحِيمِ

In the Name of ALLAH, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.


 الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي أَنزَلَ عَلَىٰ عَبْدِهِ الْكِتَابَ وَلَمْ يَجْعَل لَّهُ عِوَجًا ۜ


(1) Praise be to ALLAH, Who hath sent to His Servant the Book, and hath allowed therein no Crookedness:


قَيِّمًا لِّيُنذِرَ بَأْسًا شَدِيدًا مِّن لَّدُنْهُ وَيُبَشِّرَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ الَّذِينَ يَعْمَلُونَ الصَّالِحَاتِ أَنَّ لَهُمْ أَجْرًا حَسَنًا


(2) (He hath made it) Straight (and Clear) in order that He may warn (the godless) of a terrible Punishment from Him, and that He may give Glad Tidings to the Believers who work righteous deeds, that they shall have a goodly Reward,

مَّاكِثِينَ فِيهِ أَبَدًا

(3) Wherein they shall remain for ever:

وَيُنذِرَ الَّذِينَ قَالُوا اتَّخَذَ اللَّهُ وَلَدًا

(4) Further, that He may warn those (also) who say, "ALLAH hath begotten a son":

مَّا لَهُم بِهِ مِنْ عِلْمٍ وَلَا لِآبَائِهِمْ ۚ كَبُرَتْ كَلِمَةً تَخْرُجُ مِنْ أَفْوَاهِهِمْ ۚ إِن يَقُولُونَ إِلَّا كَذِبًا


(5) No knowledge have they of such a thing, nor had their fathers. It is a grievous thing that issues from their mouths as a saying what they say is nothing but falsehood!

فَلَعَلَّكَ بَاخِعٌ نَّفْسَكَ عَلَىٰ آثَارِهِمْ إِن لَّمْ يُؤْمِنُوا بِهَٰذَا الْحَدِيثِ أَسَفًا


(6) Thou wouldst only, perchance, fret thyself to death, following after them, in grief, if they believe not in this Message.

إِنَّا جَعَلْنَا مَا عَلَى الْأَرْضِ زِينَةً لَّهَا لِنَبْلُوَهُمْ أَيُّهُمْ أَحْسَنُ عَمَلًا


(7) That which is on earth we have made but as a glittering show for the earth, in order that We may test them - as to which of them are best in conduct.

وَإِنَّا لَجَاعِلُونَ مَا عَلَيْهَا صَعِيدًا جُرُزًا


(8) Verily what is on earth we shall make but as dust and dry soil (without growth or herbage).

أَمْ حَسِبْتَ أَنَّ أَصْحَابَ الْكَهْفِ وَالرَّقِيمِ كَانُوا مِنْ آيَاتِنَا عَجَبًا


(9) Or dost thou reflect that the Companions of the Cave and of the Inscription were wonders among Our Sign?

إِذْ أَوَى الْفِتْيَةُ إِلَى الْكَهْفِ فَقَالُوا رَبَّنَا آتِنَا مِن لَّدُنكَ رَحْمَةً وَهَيِّئْ لَنَا مِنْ أَمْرِنَا رَشَدًا


(10) Behold, the youths betook themselves to the Cave: they said, "Our Lord! bestow on us Mercy from Thyself, and dispose of our affair for us in the right way!"

WHISPERS OF shaitaan ): TO AVOID GOOD DEEDS AND ENCOURAGE U TO COMMIT SINS AND DISOBEY ALLAH SUB HANUTHALLAH

WHISPERS OF SHAYTAN (DEVIL)

Stay in your bed, don't make a fuss.

Don't bother, think of the gas you'll save.

Why go the extra miles to be kind?
Don't share that smile, they won't mind.

Be kind to your parents, why should you?
You're big enough, don't let them tell you what to do!

Don't look at those orphans, what could they need?
You have your own problems, and family to feed.

Wear good hijaab? Oh me, Oh my, you'll be targeted as a Muslim and put to shame.
Just wear no makeup, and dress simple and plain.
Go for Jihad? No not you.
Preach about Islam, and be nice?
Listen to me, and take my advice!!!

Don't fast during Ramadhaan, you'll feel dead.
Don't go for Haj, the heat you'll dread.

Why give charity, or feed the poor?
Don't do it, I say, They'll just ask for more.

Don't visit the Muslims, they'll bite your back.
Don't stop your work for prayer, it's money you lack.

Then he makes you hoard your wealth.
He thinks while he talks, and laughs to himself.

You take me as your friend, and don't give me a fight.
I'll take you to hell to gain respite.

On the judgement day we will meet.
Allah's plan we can not defeat.

Shaytaan thinks and thinks of more to say.
Say "Audzubillah himinasyaitonirrajim" and make him run away.

Dear believer, don't let shaytaan put you to the test.
You can overcome him, just do your best.


WITH LOTS OF DUAS & BLESSINGS PLZ THINK OVER IT !

"Proud to be a Muslim"

"The Scientist has proved that,

The Voice which comes from Heartbeat is ‘Lub Dub’

But now they analyze that, It is ‘Rub Rub’

RUB is an Arabic word which means 1 who made each and

everything in the Universe, and who has the Command on Everything.

That is ‘ALLAH’……..

So it means Every Heartbeat says: ‘ALLAH ALLAH’….. ...Spread this message"""""

MY SINS BLOCK MY DU'A

As I sit here alone, the tears rolling down my face
It is not salt, but pain that I taste

So I leave now to go stand before You
I am helpless and alone, what else can I do?

I have asked, I have begged but my sins block my du'a
I will come now still begging, forgive me O Allah

Forgive me and grant me what it is that I ask
For me it is impossible but for You a simple task

I try and I try but I do not succeed
But I understand and know it is because Your Words I do not heed

I hear, yes I hear but I do not always obey
Perhaps that is why I am destitute, isolated and why You have written that I will be alone this way

I have no to blame but the person in the mirror I see
No one else must pay for my sins, no one else, no one else, no one else but me

So I stand before You to again beg forgiveness because You said that I can
You have told us in Your Book that You are Ar-Rahman

I will ask, I will beg but my sins block my du'a
But I will keep asking, forgive me O Allah...
Aamiin.

THE BEST JIHAD IS TO CONTROL OUR NAFS.

Our worst enemy is our Nafs. A true warrior will fight his Nafs before fighting with others. A true warrior will recognise the enemy closer to home. A true warrior will realise that this Jihad an-Nafs is an ongoing battle.. for the stronger his imaan gets, the harder the battle becomes.. But the more he continues to fight, the more successful he becomes, InshaAllah ♥

O son of Adam...


The Prophet (sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam) said: “Allah, Blessed and Exalted is He, says, ‘O son of Adam, as long as you call on Me, I shall forgive you of what you have done, and think nothing of it. O son of Adam, even if your sins were to reach up to the clouds in the sky, and then you were to ask for My forgiveness, I would forgive you and think nothing of it. O son of Adam, even if you were to come to Me with sins nearly as great as the earth, and then you were to meet Me after death, not worshiping anything besides Me, I would bring you forgiveness nearly as great as the earth.’” [Tirmidhi]


Commentary: "Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) loves it when people ask Him to forgive their sins. He is overjoyed with their repentance, since He hates to punish anybody. At the slightest excuse He washes people’s sins away. The only condition is that the human being must truly regret in his/her heart that they did what they did. The sinner should be ashamed of their misdeeds, and discontinue committing such sins.

If the resolve to avoid the sin is not there then one has not actually repented.In this hadith, Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) tells us that no matter how many a person’s sins are, should they even reach the sky in heaps, Allah would forgive the sinner if they were to turn to Allah in repentance. In a different hadith, the Prophet (sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam) told us that Allah’s bounty is so vast that He would actually convert all the sins into good deeds, should the person truly repent. We should not postpone repenting of our sins and reforming ourselves to when we become old, since nobody knows when they will die."

THINK & REFLECT !!!!

Stop Zina...! Sex chat...!


Praise be to Allaah.


Islam came to ...close the doors that lead to evil and sin, and is keen to block all the means that may lead to corruption of hearts and minds. Love and infatuation between the sexes are among the worst of problems.


Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in Majmoo’ al-Fataawa (10/129):

Love is a psychological sickness, and if it grows strong it affects the body, and becomes a physical sickness, either as diseases of the brain, which are said to be diseases caused by waswaas, or diseases of the body such as weakness, emaciation and so on.

And he (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in Majmoo’ al-Fataawa (10/132):


Loving a non-mahram woman leads to many negative consequences, the full extent of which is known only to the Lord of people. It is a sickness that affects the religious commitment of the sufferer, then it may also affect his mind and body. End quote.

It is sufficient to note that one of the effects of love of a member of the opposite sex is enslavement of the heart which is held captive to the loved one. So love is a door that leads to humiliation and servility. That is sufficient to put one off this sickness.


Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in Majmoo’ al-Fataawa (10/185):
If a man is in love with a woman, even if she is permissible for him, his heart remains enslaved to her, and she can control him as she wishes, even though outwardly he appears to be her master, because he is her husband; but in fact he is her prisoner and slave, especially if she is aware of his need and love for her. In that case, she will control him like a harsh and oppressive master controls his abject slave who cannot free himself from him. Rather he is worse off than that, because enslavement of the heart is worse than enslavement of the body. End quote.

Attachment to the opposite sex will not happen to a heart that is filled with love of Allaah; it only affects a heart that is empty and weak, so it is able to gain control of it, then when it becomes strong and powerful it is able to defeat the love of Allaah and lead the person into shirk. Hence it is said: Love is the action of an empty heart.

If the heart is devoid of the love and remembrance of the Most Merciful, and is a stranger to speaking to Him, it will be filled with love of women, images and listening to music.

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in Majmoo’ al-Fataawa (10/135):
If the heart loves Allaah alone and is sincerely devoted to Him, it will not even think of loving anyone else in the first place, let alone falling in love. When a heart falls in love, that is due to the lack of love for Allaah alone. Hence because Yoosuf loved Allaah and was sincerely devoted to Him, he did not fall into the trap of love, rather Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“Thus it was, that We might turn away from him evil and illegal sexual intercourse. Surely, he was one of Our chosen, (guided) slaves”
[Yoosuf 12:24]


As for the wife of al-‘Azeez, she was a mushrik as were her people, hence she fell into this trap. End quote.


The Muslim must save himself from this fate and not fall short in guarding against it and ridding himself of it. If he falls short in that regard and follows the path of love, by continuing to steal haraam glances or listening to haraam things, and being careless in the way he speaks to the opposite sex, etc, then he is affected by love as a result, then he is sinning and will be subject to punishment for his actions.

How many people have been careless at the beginning of this problem, and thought that they were able to rid themselves of it whenever they wanted, or that they could stop at a certain limit and not go any further, until the sickness took a strong hold and no doctor or remedy could help?
Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in Rawdat al-Muhibbeen (147):

If the cause happens by his choice, he has no excuse for the consequences that are beyond his control, but if the reason is haraam, the drunkard had no excuse. Undoubtedly following one glance with another and allowing oneself to keep thinking about the person is like drinking intoxicants: he is to be blamed for the cause. End quote.

If a person strives to keep away from the things that lead to this serious sickness, by lowering his gaze and not looking at haraam things, not listening to haraam things, and averting the passing thoughts that the shaytaan casts into his mind, then after that something of the evils of this sickness befalls him because of a passing glance or a transaction that is basically permissible, and his heart becomes attached to a woman, there is no sin on him for that in sha Allaah, because Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“Allaah burdens not a person beyond his scope”
[al-Baqarah 2:286]


Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in Majmoo’ al-Fataawa (11/10):
If that does not result from carelessness or transgression on his part, then there is no sin on him for what befalls him. End quote.

Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in Rawdat al-Muhibbeen (147):
If love occurs for a reason that is not haraam, the person is not to be blamed, such as one who loved his wife or slave woman, then he separated from her but the love remained and did not leave him. He is not to be blamed for that. Similarly if there was a sudden glance then he averted his gaze, but love took hold of his heart without him meaning it to, he must, however, ward it off and resist it. End quote.

But he must treat his heart by putting a stop to the effects of this love, and by filling his heart with love of Allaah and seeking His help in that. He should not feel too shy to consult intelligent and trustworthy people for advice or consult some doctors and psychologists, because he may find some remedy with them. In doing that he must be patient, seek reward, remain chaste and keep quiet, and Allaah will decree reward for him in sha Allaah.

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in Majmoo’ al-Fataawa (10/133):
If he is tested with love but he remains chaste and is patient, then he will be rewarded for fearing Allaah. It is known from shar’i evidence that if a person remains chaste and avoids haraam things in looking, word and deeds, and he keeps quiet about it and does not speak of it, so that there will be haraam talk about that, whether by complaining to another person or committing evil openly, or pursuing the beloved one in any way, and he is patient in obeying Allaah and avoiding sin, despite the pain of love that he feels in his heart, just as one who is afflicted with a calamity bears the pain of it with patience, then he will be one of those who fear Allaah and are patient, “Verily, he who fears Allaah with obedience to Him (by abstaining from sins and evil deeds, and by performing righteous good deeds), and is patient, then surely, Allaah makes not the reward of the Muhsinoon (good-doers) to be lost” [Yoosuf 12:90]. End quote.

And Allaah knows best.


Islam does not allow an adulterer to marry a chaste woman, and it does not allow a chaste man to marry an adulteress.

[conditions applied]

The adulterer — fornicator marries not but an adulteress — fornicatress or a Mushrikah; and the adulteress –fornicatress, none marries her except an adulterer — fornicater or a Mushrik [and that means that the man who agrees to marry (h...ave a sexual relation with) a Mushrikah (female polytheist, pagan or idolatress) or a prostitute, then surely, he is either an adulterer — fornicator, or a Mushrik (polytheist, pagan or idolater). And the woman who agrees to marry (have a sexual relation with) a Mushrik (polytheist, pagan or idolater) or an adulterer — fornicator, then she is either a prostitute or a Mushrikah (female polytheist, pagan, or idolatress)]. Such a thing is forbidden to the believers (of Islamic Monotheism)” [al-Noor 24:3]


Say no ZINA! Don't be offended but pls educate yourself. If you pass incorrect information on Islam to others, u will be held responsible for it, as you are causing alot of damage.Please refer to the Qur'an and Hadith you will find everything you need to know Insha'Allah, may Allah guide us all and save us from committing any sins...Ameen...may Allah protect us teenagers.Phone sex chat and internet sex chat with a non-mahram will also fall into this category. Stop Zina! Sex chat!, even chatting with a non-mahram is prohibited in Islam.

Giving Gifts...

ASSALAMUALIKUM

Gift-giving is one of the good manners that maintains and strengthens relations between the giver and the recipient. It is one of the acts that Prophet Muhammad recommended us -Muslims- to do. Al-Bukhaari narrated that ‘Aa’ishah said: “The Messenger of Allaah used to accept gifts and reward people for giving them.”
The phrase: “Reward people for giving them,” means giving the giver (at a later time) something of equal value at least in return. This Hadeeth (narration) indicates that accepting gifts and giving something of equal value (or more) to the giver is the way of the Prophet .

The Prophet enjoined responding in kind to favours, as he said in an authentic narration: “Whoever does you a favour, respond in kind, and if you cannot find the means of doing so, then keep praying for him until you think that you have responded in kind.” [Abu Daawood]

“Whoever does you a favour,” means, whoever treats you kindly in word or deed or by gifting you.
“Respond in kind,” means to treat him kindly just as he has treated you kindly.
“If you cannot find the means of doing so” means if you do not have the money.
“Until you think that you have responded in kind” means, repeatedly supplicate for him until you think that you have rewarded him his due.

One of the Du’aa’ forms that one can say is ‘Jazaaka Allaahu khayran’ (may Allaah reward you with good). At-Tirmithi narrated that Usaamah Ibn Zayd said: The Messenger of Allaah said: “Whoever has a favour done for him and says ‘Jazaak Allaahu khayran’ has done his utmost to thank him.” [At-Tirmithi]

“Done his utmost to thank him,” means that he has done his utmost to express his gratitude, because he has acknowledged his shortcomings and that he is unable to reward and thank him enough, so he refers the matter to Allaah, to reward him in the best manner. It is said that: “If you are unable to give him back in kind, then speak at length thanking him and supplicating for him.” [Tuhfat Al-Ahwathi]

Also, The Prophet peace and blessings be upon him said: “Exchange gifts, as that will lead to increasing your love to one another.” [Al-Bukhaari]

Have you gifted anyone recently purely for the sake of Allah SWT ?

Love, Lust and (Deception)?


Love, Lust and Dhoka(Deception)?

In recent times, we see that many brothers and sisters have been either stung or infected by the love bug. Today, when science and technology boasts of reaching new heights and standards, yet, it fails to contemplate on feelings and emotions. And, we call it advancement, paradoxical!

For the lovers, it would make all sense if it would be fruitful at the end, but, lets examine, the issues which are devastating.

Brothers and sisters, if you really love / like someone, look at the reasons for it. For it could be for worldly aspects, and, in most cases we find people falling in love, because of the lack of visualizing things from the Islamic point of view, which is the actual point of view, and on which everything should be based.

The lack of this perception is the foundation for all problems. To love / like someone and wanting to get married is fine, but, to love / like someone and prolong marriage, and during this time, do what is not allowed / restricted, but, having the urge to continue with them, is nothing but the impact of the western drug and the so – called open society, which will only lead you to sin.

Today, we do know, the norm agenda of lovers / liker’s, the general excuses, such as:

“We need to get to know each other better”

“I was thinking how about we catch up for coffee”

“I think we should get married”

“I’m alone; can you come over to my place?”

And the list goes on! Now, many of us know quite a lot of verses and ahadith prohibiting these acts, and also know of the punishments.

But the general answer, of the lovers ‘ likers of the ummah, “I’m going to get married to him / her anyway” or “Allah knows my niyah” or “We haven’t done anything, we just talk over the phone”, it’s like ‘Hello, what are you even talking about?”. This is blatantly ignoring, blatantly disobeying and blatantly going against the Command of Allah and His Rasool.

There are many verses and ahadith if need to be quoted. But, lets take a minute and analyze and realize what true love should be.

If anyone were to truly love / like someone, then would you not have thought about the following:

If you really love / like someone so much – Then would you not want to protect them? Of course, you would! Would you not want to protect them from the Fire of Hell?

If you really love / like someone so much – Then would you let them commit a sin?

If you really love / like someone so much – Then would you commit a sin which in turn is going to be added as a sin for him / her as well?

If you really love / like someone so much – Then would you forsake their jannah for the pleasure of the dunya?

If you really love / like someone so much, – What should matter most to you is would she / he, would be standing infront of Allah at the day of Qiyamah, and because, of you, your talking to him / her, your meeting, your catching up, your dressing up, your eating, your everything for that him / her, is going to take them to HELL?

The truth is, if you would really love / like someone, you wouldn’t be doing haraam, and wouldn’t allow them to do haraam either. You would try to protect them from the punishment of Allah, by stopping haraam and stop them from doing haraam. And get things done legally.

The bottom line is, if you love / like someone, make it halaal, and get married, talking over the phone, meeting, dating, chatting, web caming, anything your doing is not love but is haraam, and if it would be love, it would be a sincere approach for marriage.

To end with, for the lovers / likers, if you eventually, don’t end up with that loved / liked one, it’s not the end of the world, and to be disappointed or depressed, would only mean, “Your not happy with the What Allah wanted for you” and “Your contemplating that Allah didn’t do the right thing!” Aazoobillah!

For the lovers / likers - to cut it all short, do think,

- Is the love of a boy / girl more dear, better and important to you thanl,

- The love and importance of Allah and His Rasool.

Still got time, “Welcome to the Real World! Live for the HereAfter!”

"Did Allah, the Glorified and Exalted, promise you that He will free you from Hell Fire?"

The man said, "No."

......"Did Allah promise you that He will give you Jannah?"

The man replied, "No."

Etiquette as Taught by the Qur'an ..

Besides the laws revealed by Allah that were designed to govern our lives, the Qur'an has also indicated 'Etiquette' which we are advised to maintain in our dealings with each other on this planet.
"This Reading (Qur'an) guides to the best path, and brings good news to the believers who lead a righteous life, that they have deserved a great recompense."
(al-Isra’ 17:9)
The below list are not LAWS, but when Allah makes a recommendation, it is always very advisable for us to 'hear & obey' in a guarantee that it will lead to happiness for all involved.

  1. Always Respond to a 'Greeting':

    "When greeted with a greeting, you shall respond with a better greeting or at least an equal one. Allah reckons all things."
    (an-Nisa’ 4:86)

  2. Always Say 'Good' things:

    "Do you not see that Allah has cited the example of a good word as a good tree whose root is firmly fixed, and its branches are high in the sky. It produces its crop every season, as designed by its Lord. Allah thus cites the examples for the people, that they may take heed."
    (Ibrahim 14:24-25)

  3. Be 'Humble', and speak 'Lightly':

    "Walk humbly and lower your voice, the ugliest voice is the donkey's voice."
    (Luqman 31:19)

  4. Invite to Allah with wisdom and kindness:

    "Invite to the path of your Lord with wisdom and kind enlightenment, and debate with them in the best possible manner. Your Lord knows best who has strayed from His path, and He knows best who are the guided ones."
    (an-Nahl’ 16:125)

    "It was mercy from Allah that you became compassionate towards them. Had you been harsh and mean-hearted, they would have abandoned you.

    (al-E-Imran 3:159)

  5. Be Kind to your parents:

    "Your Lord has decreed that you shall not worship except Him, and your parents shall be honored. As long as one or both of them live, you shall never say to them, "Uff" [the slightest gesture of annoyance], nor shall you shout at them; you shall treat them amicably. And lower for them the wings of humility, and kindness, and say, "My Lord, have mercy on them, for they have raised me from infancy."
    (al-Isra’ 17:23-24)

  6. Suppress Anger & Forgive People:

  7. Counter Evil with Good:

    "Not equal is the good response and the bad response. You shall resort to the nicest possible response. Thus, the one who used to be your enemy, may become your best friend."
    (Fussilat 41:34)

    "They steadfastly persevere in seeking their Lord, observe the Salat, spend from our provisions to them secretly and publicly, and counter evil with good. These have deserved the best abode."
    (al-Ra’d 13:22)

  8. Do NOT Say 'Bad' things:

    (al-Furqan 25:63)

  11. Do NOT Curse the Idolaters:

    "And do not curse those who call on other than Allah, lest they blaspheme and curse Allah, out of ignorance. We have adorned the works of every group in their eyes. Ultimately, they return to their Lord, then He informs them of everything they had done."
    (al-An’ am 6:108)

  12. Do NOT make fun of others, or call them names:

    "O you who believe, no people shall ridicule other people, for they may be better than they. Nor shall any women ridicule other women, for they may be better than they. Nor shall you mock one another, or call each other names. Evil indeed is the reversion to wickedness after attaining faith. Anyone who does not repent after this, these are the transgressors."
    (al-Hujarat 49:11)

  13. Do NOT be suspicious, or spy on one another, or backbite:

    "O you who believe, if a wicked person brings any news to you, you shall first investigate, lest you commit injustice towards some people, out of ignorance, then become sorry and remorseful for what you have done."
    (al-Hujarat 49:6)

    "O you who believe, you shall avoid any suspicion, for even a little bit of suspicion is sinful. You shall not spy on one another, nor shall you backbite one another; this is as abominable as eating the flesh of your dead brother. You certainly abhor this. You shall observe Allah. Allah is Redeemer, Most Merciful."
    (al-Hujarat 49:12)

  14. Do NOT be 'Racist':

    "O people, We created you from the same male and female, and rendered you distinct peoples and tribes, that you may recognize one another. The best among you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous. Allah is Omniscient, Cognizant."
    (al-Hujarat 49:13)
