brotherhood1There is a lot of malice and hatred between muslims of different madhabs. A lot of people in social media use more time in explaining why some brother from another madhabs is wrong in something instead of giving isla or dawa in general stuff people lack. Instead of strengthening the bond of brotherhood in Islam, we are having some serious issues of unity. We are fighting each other instead of being together against our enemies. The non-muslims are taking advantage of this and putting oil to the fire, and we behaving like puppies. We don`t understand that we are hurting only ourselves.

 

The Ummah Needs Unity

Without unity how are we able to cope with the difficulties the Ummah is facing today? Rather than correcting each others madhabs aalims why can`t we talk about those things that we agree about? There will always be some differences, that doesn`t mean that we should not be able to co-operate. We can rather look at the benefit our cooperation can help the Ummah whom is in a very difficult time. We need to show mercy to each other, and help each other when any of us falls.

 

Trust Is Diminishing

I listen to story`s from my parents that things were different before. Nowadays we have difficulties trusting even our own family, than how on earth will we be able to trust someone from outside, muslim or not. There is a hadith from the Messenger of Allah pbuh that there will come a time that when the muslims will start to fight each other, than Allah will not help them. Isn`t that what has happened. Our Ummah is bleeding on different places and we are not helping or caring for each other. Greed, jealousy, animosity, envy, hatred, backbiting, pride, bitterness is ruining us.

 

Deen Is Easy Don`t Make It Difficult

The Messenger of Allah pbuh said, that if one brother proposes to a woman, than the other brother is not allowed to propose to the same girl, until one of them turns down the proposal. Nowadays, sending a proposal is one thing, but people are deliberately putting hurdles in the way of other to get married, making troubles for them, that could lead them to haram consequences. If one person turns down a proposal, the people whom were denied put hurdles in the person’s life so that they`ll regret that they ever did that. Even if they later are not interested, but just so that those whom are more blessed than them gets turned down. What is their fault? They came in their way? They forgot the fact that our hearts are in the hands of Allah and he turns them wherever he wants. If you sincerely want something turn to Allah, instead of the creation. Using haram tactics to win, will not give any barakah in the marriage, but rather cause trouble. To win has become more important than the goal. People don`t think about whether they use halal or haram ways to achieve their goal. Belittling other and putting hurdles in their way so that they lose has become common.

i am to busy working on my own grass to notice if yours is greener

 

Water Your Own Grass 

What has come to the world, when a brother or sister in Islam can`t swallow the fact that some people are a tad more blessed than them. So instead of watering their own grass, they put hurdles in others life. It has become a crime to be succesful. Why can`t we instead try to water our own grass, before we complain that others grass is more greener?

 

 

The Best Of Us Are Those With Highest Taqwa

Muslims with different colors and ethnicities are hating each other because they feel that they are better than the other because of their heritage, color etc. Isn`t that one of the things our Messenger pbuh fought to diminish. He said that no one is better than another no matter what their wealth, position, color or ethnicity is. If one of them are better than the other it is the one with the best taqwa / godfear that has the highest status. Haven`t we often seen that people with lesser positions in dunya, for instance someone whom is a cleaner, leads the salah, where people whom are wealthy is praying behind him. That is because the cleaner is with more knowledge of the deen than those in prayer behind him. Or the fact that everyone in prayer,  no matter what status they have in dunya are standing beside each other in prayer. No one is ahead of anyone else, except for the Imam. We are all going into the same place in graveyard no matter how much wealth we collect. We have definitely forgotten the teachings of our Prophet pbuh when some people are behaving superior of others.

 

Preferring Beauty Over Deen

Isn`t it a shame that people with good deen but not the best beauty have difficulty in getting married. People give preference to insignificant matters when they are looking for a spouse. The browner you are, the less proposals you get. Shouldn`t our first priority be to check if the deen is ok? How on earth will a man be able to lead his family in Islam, if he doesn`t know even the basics of Islam. How on earth is a woman going to be a good wife, if she doesn`t give any importance to Islam in her life.

 

What is our solution?

  1. Like the Messenger of Allah pbuh has said, wish for your brother what you wish for yourself.
  2. If he is blessed in one thing, you might be blessed in something he lacks. We are all blessed differently, try to count your blessings when you see others are doing better than you.
  3. In deen look at those better than you, in dunya look at those below you.
  4. Remember: with every blessing there are also difficulties, with every difficulty there are also blessings.
  5. Instead of becoming jealous or envious of others, water your own grass, and see that the fruit of hard labour does give results.
  6. If you fall back at start, remember there must have been some lesson in the game of life you didn`t learn what you needed to learn to reach to the goal. So life threw you back to start, to teach it to you.
  7. Look at what we have in common instead of what differs us. Our goal should be to better the condition of the Ummah. That is not one-man-job. We can only do that if we unite and help each other instead of throwing stones at each other. The youth can become lost while we are discussing petty differences, that doesn`t mean anything in the long run.
  8. Look for deen rather than beauty. People with good character becomes more and more beautiful as the years pass by, regardless of their physical appearance. If you both are on deen, there is much chance you will re-unite in Paradise. Shouldn`t that be our ultimate goal?
  9. Learning from others`s mistakes is intelligence. That is a great way to raise the status and condition of the Ummah from generation to generation.

We need to check ourselves before Allah does it. May Allah help us perfect and complete our light and strengthen our brotherhood and guide the Ummah to do good in all our endeavors. Ameen summa ameen

hearts are fragile, be careful with your wordsAlmost everyone are on fb now. If you’re not online in these ages than it is quite strange. So like there is a manual for almost every thing, there should also be a manual for how to update statuses on FB. A lot of times people try to be funny and end up being very rude. I have also burnt myself on that. Sometimes words can`t describe what you want to say, or you don`t find the right words to proclaim your message. And sometimes you just want to be funny.

Everyone has different values from each other, even if their brought up in the same family there will be differences. What I understand in a certain way, another person will understand differently, no matter what. When we write a status on FB we will never be guaranteed that we will not hurt another person. What we might say in a manner just to be funny, can very easily offend another person. I`m thinking that as muslims, we know that if we hurt someone`s feelings in this world, and are for any reason not able to apologize to them before our or their death. Those people will stand in the way of us going to Paradise. It is better to settle a matter in the dunya then the Hereafter, if you would like to make it to Paradise.

Sometimes we see different things in the community that we want to point out. We must be very careful that are status don`t end up known as backbiting. Checking our intentions and making them pure for the sake of wanting a better change in the society is a must. We must be careful not to belittle someone. Will what you are about to say, change the other person, make him/her think, or will it make him/her worse. No one I`ve ever heard about has changed a person by offending them. If your intention is to create a change, it can only be done through love and a positive way of proclaiming your message, without bringing others down. If you are doing dawa or Islah the wrong way, you could end up in making others feel hopeless and make their situation even worse. Don`t make others`feel hopeless, make them feel hopeful. Each and every has a very fragile heart. Even if they try to hide their feelings behind a happy face. Know for sure that what we say and do, does have an impact on the people you interact with, either we want it or not.

We need to evaluate what we say to make sure that it is with the right intention, and to make a positive change in others, without backbiting. If not, than our messages are better left unsaid.

muhammad (pbuh) 2Our Prophet (pbuh) is the greatest blessing we have ever had. He is a mercy to all mankind. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) had the most magnificent character any being can or will ever have till the end of time. When we read or hear story`s about his seerah (biography) I just fall down in humbleness for what kind of values he represented. This is the person to admire the most. This is the person one should try the most to follow and mimic from the core of our hearts. If we manage to achieve his blessings, nothing in this world would be difficult for us, in sha Allah.

Our Prophet (pbuh) is the person that had the most genuine care and compassion for every human being. He treated everyone with the out most respect and honour that every person that knew him thought he loved them the most. One time one sahabi wanted to hear the Prophet (pbuh) say from his lips that he loved that sahabi the most, because that`s what he thought from the way he treated him. So he asked the Prophet about it, and he would say Aisha raa or Abu Bakr Siddiq raa. The sahabi was astonished because he had always thought that since Prophet Muhammad was so nice to him that he was the one he loved the most.

Our Prophet (pbuh) managed to control his anger at all times. And taught the sahaba the strong person is not the one that can beat another person, but rather the one that controls ones anger while angry. He gifted his clothes to the graves of his enemies who had killed people in his family, when they died so that the fire wouldn`t touch them. SubhanAllah, would you have done that today if you knew someone you dislike would be saved from the Torment of the Fire? I guess most of us would rather seek revenge, then try to forgive. Think for one second if you try to overlook the faults of others, Allah will overlook your faults on the Judgement Day.

At home he washed and mended his own clothes and helped around the house and didn`t see the household chores as degrading to do for men. He never became angry to any of his servants and helped them around the house. Aisha Raa said that the Prophet Muhammad’s character was the Quran. SubhanAllah! We today tend to feel that things that Islam say is difficult to adopt, but our Prophet lived his life according to every ayah in the Quran. SubhanAllah!

In another hadith it is told about the how other non-muslims treated him and how he treated them back. For example, we all have heard about the woman with the garbage, throwing garbage at the Prophet (pbuh) when he passed her house in the streets. She used to do this often. One time when she didn`t come our Prophet went to her house to see how she was doing because he got worried. Is she alright? From this gesture of his that woman became a muslim.

He didn`t treat people differently because they had more money or anything. I remember the story about when he heard that Hadrat Bilal raa was so tired because of all the workload he had as a slave. Our Prophet came home to him and helped him with the household and made Bilal raa relax. Who is it that today would go home to someone and do their work. Often we have so much to do ourselves that we don`t even find enough time to do that. But our Prophet found time and showed us the path to walk. SubhanAllah.

One time when he heard Khadijah raa sister long time afther her death, he for a moment, was reminded of her. When Aisha raa saw this she got jealous and said why he thought of that woman when she has so many wifes now that are much younger and more beautiful than she was. He rebuked her and said that no wife of hers would ever be like Khadijah raa. He said, she believed in me when everyone else was against me, she supported him and is the only wife that gave birth to his children. So she had a very special place in his heart. SubhanAllah! He never had another wife while she was alive. Nowadays men always talk about having four wifes without even fulfilling all the obligations that one wife has.

Our Prophet (pbuh) also treated his daughters in the most nice way. When his daughter Fatima raa came to visit him, he would kiss her hand and give her his own seat to sit with him. Also he told Fatima raa that even if she was of the noblest descent if she didn`t do any good deeds her descent won`t give her Jannah, only her good deeds would. If your good deeds hold you back your noble descent won`t make you better in Allah`s eyes.

The character of our Prophet is the best role-model for us and all the generations that will follow till the end of time. We should try to learn more and apply every single bit of it in our conduct, so that we can prosper and live a fulfilling life. This is the person I admire the most and love so much ❤ May Allah accept all of our good deeds, keep us steadfast on the deen, give us more knowledge about the seerah so that we could apply it into our lives, and give us Jannat-ul-Firaws in the end. May Allah let us be of help to our Ummah. Ameen summa ameen.

you can do itSome people are so positive no matter what. Other get inspired to be positive from their surroundings. Every person has gone through tough times in their lives. What motivates others through is different from  people to people. But one thing is for sure if you have that inner voice in you that says: You can do it 😉 I know you can 😉 Than most probably whatever lemons life throws at you, you will be able to make your lemonade sweet and tasty 🙂

Remember that some people are just plain positive. Others have to work hard to keep on the positive thoughts in their life. Most of us need inspiration in our life. Those little sentences that says, “I believe in you”, are magical. They can make all the darkness go away and bring in all the light. It isn`t that tough. If you start giving your surroundings the right push towards positivity, you will surely get it back in one way or the other. I know, like you, that everything you give to others, one way or the other you get it back. So if you make your mind that from now on, I will only spread positive comments than that will come back to you. Even if you won`t recieve it all back in this life, you will certainly get a tremendous reward in the hereafter for living your life like our Prophet (pbuh).

This is a sadqa jariyah. A neverending sawabh. You spread something positive thought around and make others happy, and they in return make others happy and so the positive circle goes on. We just have to make our minds up that, this is what will give us eternal bliss. To spread those happy thoughts that pushes others to do good. In some way or the other.

A person that invites others to do good will get a reward that is better than red camels. That was the most precious animal to own in the time of the Prophet (pbuh). Just imagine where that will take you.

Remember, be happy for others successes. When you will be happy for others, Allah will in sha Allah give you so much in return. Wish for your brothers/sisters what you wish for yourself. Don`t pull others down, it will only come back to you one day. Instead pray for your siblings, so that the goodness will come back to you. When you pray for others it heals your heart and all your sorrow and you become more happy. If you don`t believe it, try it out. You won`t be sorry. Remember that when we  pray for other people in their absence, an angel by our side, says: ” ameen, and you shall have something similar”. So you will only gain from it. Remember, true happiness lies in making other people happy. Seeing others happy will make you happy too 🙂 It doesn`t cost a thing to lift someones spirit, but in return, that person will always remember you for helping them throuht their tough times. And voila, you have made yourself another friend 😉

I heard some people talk ill about people whom discuss daily cultural issues instead of using Islam as an example whenever they want to make a point. This person does have a point in a sence. I agree to the fact that we muslims should take examples from Islam to bring people whom are misguided closer to our deen and further away from dunya. But that is not always the way it is accomplished. Sometimes one need to come with examples from our culture to show what something isn`t good or why it is good. Because people whom are a bit away from our deen sometimes need real human stories to bring them closer to what Islam says. They need stories about people whom have found guidance and how they managed that after several years.

It is upto Allah alone to guide someone. We can only pray for someone. We can come up with lots of examples to guide someone, but that person will only achieve guidance through the will of Allah Subhanwuatalah. So we try to come up with reasons for why it is important to read namaz on time to learn more about Islam and how to achieve sakoon in our life.

On the other hand if we like someone does do; say to people in an offensive manner even though our mission is to spread Islam, than that would make people distant from our deen instead of bringing them closer. Why? Because you’re looking down at them. Instead try to speak to others straight to them instead of belittling them in a way. That is better Ikhlas like our Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) has shown us through his seerah, and that would make people actually listen and apply what you say. In one sentence i would sum it up that if you want to spread dawah do it in a way, “i have found a cure to your issues, and that is Islam”, or ” i am even worse muslim than you, but I know about a way to get better, or I have found a way to become better”. I think what people need is logical explanations without saying anything bad about them. Instead of preaching in the wrong way, try to think how can i explain this that would make someone want to read fajr namaz or an ayat from our Quran after they have heard some dawah from you?

Some people like the ideal muslimah or igotitcovered are superb dais at facebook, on the other hand some people whom are new at it need to learn more to achieve its proper success.

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!

USE YOUR OWN VOICE TO RAISE YOUR OPINION!

(",) 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

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 (“,)

Saari duniya ke liye dard

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

Kya ye zarra likhein

Though we might sometimes
have to struggle through thick
