butterflyOnce in a while I think in the direction that what makes a person mature? Some people matures before others? Is it correct to say that those who take more time in maturing have a better character than those that suddenly change their behaviour?

I`m thinking about behaviour. Sometimes we see people who suddenly change their attitude towards Islam. A complete change from an un-Islamic approach to a more Islamic lifestyle. What is better? To change gradually and incorporate new ways of living or to change everything at once? I`ve seen the fact that sometimes it is better to gradually change your lifestyle. The change that comes gradually will actually also last if you are persistent in doing those good deeds.

The Prophet (pbuh) has also said that the most beloved deed to Allah is that which is done persistently even if the deed is little. An example could be that instead of reading 100 nawafil salah one day and not read any salah the day after because of tiredness, it is better to improve oneself in a sence that one does a deed that one can do everyday or every other day.

I have seen this in a lot of people. They gradually become more aware of Islam and change their behaviour. Of course one has to start one place, right? And from there on they start with the prayer, than with the Islamic look like hijab/beard. When this is accomplished they start with khusho in salah and try to improve the quality of their ibaadah, rather than the quantity. Ma Sha Allah this kind of change will in sha Allah bear it`s fruit one day or another in the future, in sha Allah.

It does depend on what kind of people one spend time with. If you have friends that reads salah and goes to the mosque or read the Quran with translation, their lifestyle will rub over on you too. The people you hang around with does have an effect on your character. Make sure that you do yourself a favour instead of going a step back, walk a step forward and try to improve your company.

Most of all it all starts with your own conviction that you want to change for the better. Your attitude decides what you want to do with your life. If you make your mind that you will in sha Allah work for Jannah, than you will try to improve yourself. Whatever the circumstance may be or your surroundings may be, you will work hard for your goal. Make up your mind today that you want to go a place where you will always be happy, a place where all your wishes will come true, a place where you will dwell in joy with all your loved ones.

When you have built yourself strong in accordance with the Islamic values, try to also change your surroundings. We have to start some place. Today is a new day, think it and make it happen, In sha Allah, ameen summa ameen.

May Allah give us guidance in becoming His pious worshippers, may we achieve ihsan in our ibaadah and all deeds, may He help us in working for our eternal abode where we in sha Allah will meet him and see His Face and achieve every other happiness that lies in jannah, in sha Allah.

none is perfectSometimes one can have in oneself different things that one does not know enough about, to prevent oneself from. One of these actions is ar-riya or ostentation. Below there will be mentioned different aspects that show the signs of riya and afterwards you can read the cure for such disease also. May Allah help us achieve true ikhlas and be mukhlas in our deeds, in sha Allah, ameen.

Imam Mawlud outlines three signs of riya. The first two are laziness and lack of action for Allah`s sake when one is alone and out of view of others. When alone, a person becomes unable or unwilling to perform acts of devotion, like reading the Quran at home, but in the Mosque, in the presence of others, he finds the drive to recite. (This does not mean that one should not respond to the inspiration one receives when in the company of people who are doing good deeds).

Another sign is riya increases ones action when praised and decreases in the absence of such praise.

The Prophet (pbuh) said: “When a believer hears somebody praising him, his faith (iman) increases”, not his pride.

The Imam says: ” The cure of riya is seeking out purification of the heart by removing four things, love of praise, fear of blame, desire for worldly benefits from the people, and fear of harm from the people.This is from nurturing the certainty that only Allah can benefit or harm one.

The Prophet (pbuh) has said:

“Be mindful of Allah, and Allah will protect you. Be mindful of Allah, and you will find Him in front of you. If you ask, ask of Allah. If you seek help, seek help from Allah. Know that if the whole nation were to gather together to benefit you with anything, it would benefit you only with something that Allah had already prescribed for you. And if (the whole nation) were to gather together to harm you, it would harm only with something that Allah had already prescribed for you. The pens have been lifted and the ink had dried”.

The practical treatment is veiling one`s actions from the eyes of the people. This way, one`s own intention are protected from vanity. This does not mean to never to deeds in front of others, but to do them also when others are not watching.

It is recommended to read surah Ikhlas (the 112th surah from the Quran). The surah affirms the oneness of Allah and negates the possibility of there being anything comparable to him. The word ikhlas comes from the arabic root khalusa, which means to be pure, as in pure honey or pure milk. As for one`s piety, it could never be pure unless free from ar-riya. Allah loves the people who are mukhlas, sincere. Imam Abu Hasan shadili once prayed:

“Make my bad actions the bad actions of those whom you love, and do not make my good actions the good actions of those with whom You are displeased”.

It is recommended to read sayyidal-Astagfar.

Paradise

Paradise

Laughter and joy and lots of light,

that`s how our eternal life will be like.

A place where there won`t be any sorrow,

not any grey day, blue day or horror.

We will be safe and sound with all our loved ones,

reading salah and praying for each other.

Our home would be like a flower blossom,

Where nice scent is from in every garden.

Kids playing and lots of giggles,

contented we would be together.

True richness is in the richness of souls,

we would have so much that it is more than enough.

We would see the righteous like shining bright stars upon us,

they will lead our way in Paradise forever.

Happiness will surround us at all the wonderful moments,

we would smile and laugh in the eternal life`s pleasures.

What guided us to this place we would think and wonder,

it wasn`t our good deeds, our salah or fasts or our character.

Than angels will answer what deed we used to do,

we learned a good deed and never stopped to do so.

When you do a good deed and persistently do it,

you gain Allah`s mercy and other blessings with it.

That is how our final abode was heaven and not hell,

we managed it through all the hurdles as well.

Now we will live here for all the time,

this is our eternal abode, our heaven, so nice.

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!

Nasiyat..

(",) 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 (",)

Poetry

(“,) 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..
InshaAllah
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
kjærlighet:)
