friday jumuah prayerThe whole version: The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) Said: Gabriel came to me with a clean mirror in his hand and said: ” this is Jumu`ah. God has made it obligatory on you, so that it may be a festival for you and after you for your followers.

The Prophet (PBUH) said: ”What good there is for us in it?”  Gabriel answered: You have got an auspicious ( lovende, gunstig) time in it. If someone seeks anything to God at this time, God has promised that He will give it to him. If he is deprived of that additional things are given to him in this connection. If anyone wants to save himself from evil on that day, God saves him from a greater calamity (katastrofe) or a like calamity which has been decreed on him.

I said (Muhammad pbuh) “what is this black dot on it?( The mirror)” He (Gabriel) said ” This is the Hour of the day og jummah which is the best day in our estimation. In the last day we will call it the day of increase. This is because your Lord, High and Exalted has a valley in Paradise which is more redolent than white musk. On the day of Al-Jumu`ah Allah High and Exalted will descend from the illiyyeen unto His Throne. His Throne is then surrounded by pulpits of lights. The Prophets will come and sit on this pulpits. The pulpits will then be surrounded with couches of gold. The truthful servants of Allah and the martyrs will come and sit down on them. Then the dwellers of Paradise will come and sit down on the dunes. Thereafter their Lord will come and show himself to them and they will look at His Countenance while He tells them, `I fulfilled my promise to you and completed my favour upon you. This is the place of My Honour. So ask me for whatever you want. And they will ask Him of His pleasure. Allah will say`it is My pleasure that brought you to my Paradise and made you attain My Honour. So ask me of something else. They will continue to ask him until they will be done with their requests. Then, it will be opened for them – for as long as it takes people to leave the mosque on the day of jumu`ah – what no eye has ever seen no ear has ever heard and no heart ever imagined. Allah will then ascend onto His Throne, and the martyrs and the truthful servants will ascend with him. The inhabitants of the chambers will then return to their flawless pearly and white chambers or to their chambers of rubies or green chrysolite whose rivers flow perennially and whose fruits hang in pairs.They the dwellers of Paradise shall be in need of nothing greater than the day of Al-Jumu`ah so they can have more Honour and have more opportunity to look at the Countenance of their Lord, High and Exalted. That is why the day will be called the day of increase.

(recorded by ibn Abid-dunya and At-tabararni in Al-Mujam Al-Awsat; the narration is graded Hasan in view of other corroborating narrations).

For a little time now when I`m outside and I see muslim girls and women without a hijab, I sort of think in my head that wouldn`t it be nice if she also wore hijab. There are a lot of muslim women whom don`t use hijab. I even think like that when I see members from my own family. Wouldn`t it be wonderful if the girls and women out there could see the beauty in wearing hijab? To not leave the house without the headscarf or  any part of the body un-covered. For a woman everything except her hands and her face is her awrah, which she needs to cover when she goes out of her home. I think most of the women wants to wear hijab but some things prevent them from starting. Like if they will get a proper rishta or if they will lose their friends or if their surroundings would think that they have become too strict in everything so they might lose their friendships.

These people are just unaware of the fact that what should make a difference in their life is not what other people might say, nobody can please each and every person in this world. Some people are always going to be displeased with what you do as some others are going to be pleased with what you do, because we people have different mindsets. What should actually matter for every Muslimah is the fact that what their Lord, Allah says about the matter because ultimately it is to Him you are going back after your life here on the earth. The rules are simple, follow Allah’s laws and He will be happy, not follow and He will become angry. If we try our out most to live our life’s according to Islam we would become more satisfied about ourselves as well, as we are trying to do our best.

The best friendships are those whom guide you to a better path and righteousness. If one thinks of losing ones friends think if Allah is with you, you don`t need any other on you side and if Allah Subhanwuatalah is angry with you no other person can ever help you out of your worries as Allah is the only one Who can do that. Put your trust in Allah and He will take care of the rest.

If someone won`t marry just because you use hijab than that person does not have his priorities right and can most certainly not be a good muslim. A person whom helps you to do more righteous deeds so that our Allah will be pleased, that is the one to hold on to. Because in the hereafter inshaAllah people with these mindset do prosper. And so your final destination Jannah is to be achieved.

I`ve always thought about this a lot. I would like my husband to be, to pray salat and be a good muslim. And have a motivation to do good in every situation in life. Just so that we also can have a chance to prosper. Someone whom follows the universal islamic guidelines and wants to strive to become a better person. One whom has the right priorities in life and wants to achieve eternal bliss. That is muslim would be a perfect husband.

If you look for dunya when you live in dunya that is all you will achieve. So you will be the one whom loses in the hereafter. Though if you live in dunya but are earning good deeds for the hereafter, than that will be your eternal place, a mansion in jannah, inshaAllah.

May Allah bless us all and guide us to always follow the straight path that leads to eternal bliss. Ameen summa ameen.

Systemet i Norge gir barn mange rettigheter, men noen ganger ødelegger det mer enn det gagner. Årsaken er at vi muslimer har litt andre verdier om hvordan barn skal oppdras enn nordmenn. Forhold vi ikke liker blir sett på som vanlig i det norske samfunnet. Det kan skape problemer dersom barnet kommer på avveie. Enhver far og mor prøver så godt de kan til å oppfostre barna sine så bra de greier men noen ganger går det galt. Kanskje får barna feil venner eller henger i feil miljø, det kan være mange årsaker. Jeg tror den største årsaken er at det ikke blir satt nok grenser hjemme og barna tøyer de, uten konsekvenser. Mange foreldre har mistet grepet over sine barn så nå er dem ute av kontroll. På den andre siden er ikke alltid barnevernet den beste løsningen siden deres måte å oppdra barna på er annerledes enn oss muslimer. So clashes occur. Støttekontaktene i barnevernet er som regel norske folk med norske verdier som går imot muslimske verdier på flere områder. Dermed ødelegger det barnet mer enn at det skulle hjelpe. Jeg som mange andre skulle ønske personer som er ressursterke og muslimer kan melde seg som støttekontakt til barnevernet slik at disse barna får noen ordentlig muslimske brødre / søstre som kan vise dem veien til hva som er riktig her i verden. En som kan guide barnet med de universelle muslimske verdiene slik at barnet får en ordentlig framtid å se imot og at det foreldrene kanskje ikke greier kan støttekontakten på en venn-til-venn måte greie uten store problemer. Barn med vanskeligheter trenger mennesker de kan se opp til slik at de kan bli bra mennesker de også, uten å havne i problemer. Jeg håper inshaAllah at det som har pågangsmot og ekstra tid og ressureser vil melde seg som støttekontakt til barnevernet slik at vi ikke mister våre barn som er vår fremtid. For de som har litt ekstra å gi til samfunnet, etter at de har fått så mye fra sine omgivelser. Engasjer deg og meld deg, det er noen der ute som trenger hjelp.

Dowry is very common in India/Pakistan and is some of the reasons why people hate that they will get a baby-girl instead of a baby-boy. Because some day they will have to pay to get her married. Is someone buying her? NO, so why this tradition? We listen to the news that the family of men have long lists that they need a car and electronic devices and so many things that the brides family have difficulties having enough money to pay this. If this is the case of one girl, think if someone has a lot of sisters, what will happen to them. What future are they bringing the girl into? That one day someone is going to put a price on them, if you can’t give …. than the groom won`t marry her. This is so un-ethical. Doesn`t anyone who has a sister, think that she is also one day going to get married, are you guys going to sell her to someone? I believe not all the people think like that, but then again if this wasn`t a big issue in India / Pakistan why does people hate that they are having a baby-girl and take abortion some people goes to this extent that they sell their child, because they don`t have enough money to raise the child.

The bride has a right to receiving dowry from her husband which is written on their wedding day, even so their own families doesn`t let her use her right. For instance I`ve heard about families where the bride is asking for permission to take talaq as she can be given that, but her family doesn`t let her. Or even that her dowry which she is supposed to decide herself, she is not given that right at all. Although I agree that money is not everything and the fact that the dowry of the woman is much or little doesn`t make any big difference as long as she is happy with her husband. And of course at the time our sahabah lived the dowry between a bride and the groom was put to achieving more knowledge about Islam. That is so beautiful and inspiring.

Though what I do not like is that some people try to oppress women just because they don`t have “loud voice” and that is totally unacceptable. Women should not be forced or pressured by their family to make certain choices. In Islam women has the right just like men to say no to marriage, though we don`t give the women her right, and decide for her, thinking that she doesn`t know better. We can`t lock women inside her home forever. She has the right to get as much education she wants, and that right is given from our Prophet (pbuh). She is an individual and should be given the right to make her own choices. We should try to lessen her difficulties and let her journey be without hurdles. We woman can`t fight for our rights without the cooperation from the men in our family`s because they are the one whom oppress woman mostly and not the other way around. We should try our out most to live up to the values our Prophet has made. Just read his books about his seerah / hadees and understand how beautiful character he has and how well he maintained his relation to his wifes and other ties of kinship.

The issues of todays upbringing is that the family’s give their children different rights depending on their gender. They “tie up” their daughters and doesn`t let them go out and they let their sons live without boundaries and do anything. BOTH IS WRONG. This type of upbringing can if not avoided lead to difficulties later in their lives. Both girls and boys need to be given an upbringing with boundaries and an islamic upbringing from day one, with the seerah of our Propeth (pbuh) as our role-model, only than we will prosper.

In Norway most of the issues arises when the parents don`t give their children an islamic upbringing and that they are out earning money instead of giving their children some precious time that will teach them values they can implement in their lives. So the kids grow up become adults with all the good and the bad things that are in a society. And when the grown ups are ready for marriage the problems arises. The parents have different set of values then their children so who will they get married to? Will the children like the groom that the parents choose or the other way around.

The new generation can make a change. All we need is more knowledge about our Islam and some determination, strong will and guidance from above. InshaAllah we will make a change. Ameen summa ameen

A few years back I remember I was all into Bollywood or songs and all that it contains. Though in a period of time I started to think over what I was doing. I thought a lot about whether this would give me any sawabh and if it is morally correct to listen to songies that contains somewhat fahashia. So I changed. Suddenly one day when I woke up I went to the computer with my Ipod and deleted all the songies and let all the Naats to be there. From that day on I only listen to naats and some songs that have nice and decent lyrics. That was a change in me that started for more than a year ago.

Nowadays Im reading a lot about Islam to get more knowledge so that I can know how to behave in certain circumstances from hadees sharif and lots of other islamic books. It has given me guidelines in how to behave and different types of manners that I before didn`t even know were Islamic. I`ve been lucky and had amazing help in getting me on the right track, so I want to share it, so that more people can benefit from it. Even though we all have our mistakes I can recall a lot of hadees and correct myself that In that circumstance I shouldn`t have done that or in that circumstance I should have done that. This is going to help me in my struggle to become a better human being and inshaAllah a Mominah one day.

What I want to share with you people is that if we listen to songies that have a bad ingredient and watch tv-serials that tells us more about un-islamic things than that would have a very bad effect on our spirit, our spirituality and us being a muslim. My mum always tells me that if you start repenting early in your life for your past mistakes than most of your life will be nice and rest of your life will become more prosperous, but if you start repenting when you are in your seventy`s than for one you wouldn`t be able to pray properly, for your life has passed by in negligence. It`s time for us to wake up and realize what is important in life. Which is to strive to become a better human being and a better Muslim/Muslimah to one day be invited to Jannah, InshaAllah. Ameen summa ameen.

Before I went more frequently to the Mosque than what I do nowadays. There are a few reasons for that. For the first I think that it`s the Masjid`s people responsibility to take care of the new people who come and encourage them to come on different days they celebrate. Though what I`ve experiences is that some people treat you really bad when you are there and tries to tumko neecha dikhana. I went to a program at the sunni mosque and there all the people were talking so loudly that I couldn`t hear the program. There was no respect to the people having a program. Instead of the Masjid being a place where one comes closer to ones spirituality people use it for different things. Some rishtey are made through those places, don`t want to talk how, but I`ve heard about som aunties that work for it and the people who are there talk more about their private things instead of listening to the speech of the Maulvi or the naat-reader. So I`m quite fed up and don`t have enough encouragement to go back on another program. What can I do to change this? I`m voicing my opinion so the people at least are aware over the circumstances.

Why do we go to the Mosque/Masjid? To come closer to Allah and his Prophet (pbuh) I hope and not for other selfish reasons. What I`ve experience make me not want to go back. I remember when I was on Umrah in Saudi Arabia. Now that was a different experience. I felt I come so much closer to Allah. The salat were recited so slowly that one could think of the interpretion that one knew while they were reciting it. Simply wonderful. Nowadays because of the pressure from the other muslims the namaz or especially the taraweeh is read so fast that one has difficulties following it. I felt that the people who came to Makkah sharif or Madeena sharif they came to pray not talk. I saw people praying all over the place and it really increased my imaan. Listening to the azan and praying with all the other, I felt unity and that we all are alike in front of our Lord. Even the higher class and the middle class and the poor were on the same row. I remember there was a woman there that hadn`t that clean clothes though when she prayed prayer after the salat she was so close to Allah that I got really amazed. Though no-one was giving her their seat to sit, she found a place in-between me and the ones beside me, and I could feel like she is like a person who is more closer to Allah than a lot of people at that place. A very nice experience. I would love more of these experiences in the mosques`in Oslo Norway. Just a request 😉

My Prayer..

“O Allah, place light in my heart, and on my tongue light, and in my ears light and in my sight light, and above me light, and below me light, and to my right light, and to my left light, and before me light and behind me light. Place in my soul light. Magnify for me light, and amplify for me light. Make for me light and make me a light. O Allah, grant me light, and place light in my nerves, and in my body light and in my blood light and in my hair light and in my skin light.” Ameen

Surah 105 Al Fil

Let not man be intoxicated with power, Or material resourses, They cannot defeat. The purpose of Allah. So Abrahah Ashram Found to his cost. His sacrilegious attack On the holy Fane of Allah brought about His own undoing:what seemed but frail Destroyed his mighty hosts in a day!

The foolproof tip of the day for everyone else!



(",) My Mum always says that
you should marry someone
who loves you more than you
love him, because that man
would never ever make you cry
or be the reason that your
sheding tears. He would do
anything to always keep you
happy and satisfied (",)


(“,) Your heart is mine and mine is yours, and so it`s been since I`ve known love`s true meaning itself, holding each others hand we stand together beneath the lovely sky, gazing towards the same destiny, just U and I (“,)

Naat/hamd-Quote of the moment :)

Saari duniya ke liye dard
se mahmor hain jo..
Ik faqat Rehmat-e-aalam
hi ka seena dekha..

Ye sab tumhara
karam hain Aka
ke baat ab tak
bani hoyi hain..

Ehsas dein toofik dein..
Phir jazbaen Siddiq dein..

Kya ye zarra likhein
Shaan Unki, jin pe
bejhein Salaam
khud Khudai..

Quote of the moment :)

Though we might sometimes
have to struggle through thick
or thin,We will receive each
other’s support to be there to
win..And we will blossom like
this through eternity..
Ameen summa ameen

Når du er forent med en
du elsker, er det ingenting
du ikke klarer :)

Gode ord skaper tillit.
Gode tanker skaper
Inderlighet. God
giverglede skaper

Mood :)
