heartbeat Allah, tazkiya, purification of heart, serve AllahCleanliness is important to most of us. Living in 2015, most of us have the basics to keep us clean. The understanding of cleanliness between a muslim and a non-muslim is different. Non-muslims looks for the cleanliness of the body, while we muslims also try to clean the heart and the soul. A non-muslim may take a shower, brush his teeth and put on some perfume and feel clean. For a practicing muslim to feel clean he also would take time to take the ritual shower called ghusl, to clean his soul. He/she would spend time to clean his heart from that which make it become black, like hatred, jealousy, envy and all bad qualities that the heart has to avoid to keep it pure. This fight is constant and is known as jihad, struggle. The struggle with your own self; nafs, to do the right thing, according to Allah`s laws and avoid what Allah has prohibited. This is an ongoing battle 24/7 to put your own desires and wants aside and work for what Allah wants you to do.

Something Is Smelling

People may sit beside some other in the subway, and notice the bad smell of sweat or spices coming from someone. But have they ever thought about the fact that their souls also has a smell. If they abide by Allah`s rules, the soul will have a good smell. If the soul doesn`t abide by Allah`s rules or doesn`t believe in Allah, it will have a foul smell. After our death the angels will comment on our smell according to this. And we will see our deeds in form of a human who is beautiful=good deeds versus ugly=bad deeds and he will stay with us til the Judgment Day. We can`t spend a second with people that we don`t like to be with. How will our time in the grave be in case our deeds are not good. May Allah preserve us and guide us to do good and accept our good deeds and raise our status because of them. Aameen.

Sisterhood, brotherhood, world, earth, united, care jpg

A Message Can Be Sent Instantly

When the righteous pious predecessor, the friends of Allah lived on this earth, there was a time when people spent more time on cleaning their hearts, and there was more love between people. Now we clean our bodies but the heart is full of hatred, jealousy etc, so there is less love between people. Before people would walk days in difficult weather to meet people they cared for. Now we see, the world has become so little, we can send a message that will go instantly to the other side of the world, yet many doesn`t take out time for the people they care for, even if they live in the same town. May Allah increase the sisterhood and brotherhood of the Ummah, that despite our differences we can stand united and help each other. Aameen. Not abandon those who are wrong but gently correct them according to our means.

 

Clean It From What Does Not Belong There

Of course cleanliness is half of imaan, and we should use time and make an effort to keep ourselves clean. But don`t just stop there. We can also use time to cultivate our qualities as close as we can reach to the level of the sunnah, if we try. Not only polish our skin before an event but also our hearts, to clean it from what does not belong there. Abundance repentance, dhikr of Allah and read durood. If we use more time on this we would also be feeling beautiful, not only  just looking beautiful. May Allah preserve us. Aameen.

Allah one

 

I was listening to a lecture by Mufti Muhammad Akmal about AyatulKursi that was simply mind-blowing. A few points I would like to share. He said sometimes we listen to naats or see other people behaving like they are setting others beside Allah. But in reality a simple different kind of thinking kan determine whether that is shirk or not.

 

Three points determines whether something is shirk

When you put things to test through three points you will manage to determine whether it is shirk or not. Those three points are :
1. Is it something that one has always had or is it given to you by someone?
2. Is it something that will never end or is it something that could end or has an end?
3. Is it something that has no limit to it or is it something that is within limits?

 

Asking from the Prophet (pbuh)

Whenever we listen to different kind of people they say that asking something from our Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is shirk. Mufti Akmal explains this in a very nice way that was very easy to understand. If we think that what we are given from the Prophet is because it is given to him from Allah, and that it is something that will end, and that it has limits, than it is not shirk. Like we know that Allah can see everything, but we can also see so are we doing shirk because we are doing the same as Allah, seeing? Mufti Akmal explained that the case is that we know that our sight is given to us by Allah, it has an end and limits. Allah`s seeing is not given to him by anyone, it has no end, and no limits. When we think like that it is not shirk.

 

The intention of visiting the graveyard

Mufti Akmal also said that sometimes we see people go to different graveyards of different friends of Allah. Some say that going to these graveyards is shirk. But that depends of the niyah of you going there. If you believe that what is given to the walli is from Allah it will have an end and it is within limits it isn`t shirk. If we use these three questions whenever we are unsure about whether an action is shirk it will help us determine whether it is or not.

 

Asking from a friend of Allah (Walli)

Some say that we can`t ask walli`s for help but if we think that what is given to us from them is given because they have gotten it from Allah and not themselves than it is not shirk. Because when we think that what they have gotten will end and it has limits than it wouldn`t be shirk to think like that because it isn`t putting them as rival to Allah.

 

Is it shirk to listen to naats ?

Back to naats. So when people listen to naats they often are asking our Prophet (pbuh) of help. Mufti Akmal says that some people say that when we say “Ya RasolAllah” he hears us even though he is far away. But other say that it is shirk to think like that. The Mufti explained that if we for one could believe that Allah is far away from something than we would be doing shirk. But Allah is closer to us than our jugular vein. He is close to us and everything always. So saying that our Prophet is hearing something from far away wouldn`t be shirk because Allah isn`t far away from anything. So they are not alike.

 

Shirk everywhere

Yes we should learn from scholars from the right kind of scholars that explains thoroughly what shirk actually is and how to determine whether something is shirk or not. Some people have the attitude that they say that everything is shirk. Though Mufti Akmal explained in this video that it depends on how you think and whether it passes the tree questions mentioned above. If you would like to listen to the whole lecture it is called the bayan of Ayatulkursi by Mufti Akmal at youtube. I would highly recommend it (thumbs up). May Allah always protect us from setting a rival against Him and give us the correct aqeedah so that we can do ibaadah that will give us fruitful outcome, in sha Allah, ameen summa ameen.

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:)
