light candle for peaceIt is quite interesting what the muslims has become. Whole her 20 years our daughter hasn’t prayed, worn hijab, or had the character of a good muslimah. But on her wedding (21 years old), we are holding a Quran over her head, as she leaves the wedding hall with 2000 people, when she is heading towards expensive car, with her non-hijabi wedding-dress. Somehow parents think that this will save her life she is starting with her husband.  Even though the parents didn’t spend time in teaching her good values, manners, sunnah and knowledge of Islam. Parents maybe think that keeping the Quran over her head would, in a magically way, make everything perfect. Most asian live their life, totally progressive of their religion. We backbite, we lie, we quarrel, we disrespect, we don’t pray, we listen and watch totally un-islamic media, we stab our friends for our personal benefit. In fact, most of us, live over 70% of our lives in a way that is totally un-islamic.

We remember Islam When

When someone disrespect our Prophet pbuh. Oh our eyes becomes read with anger and we will kill and destroy anything that comes in our way when we find out. Although the, car or people on the road nearby didn’t have anything with one person disrespecting our Prophet pbuh, we think that killing and destroying anything when we get angry because of our love for the Prophet pbuh, is justified. After all were saving his honour pbuh.

Anger Or Not Anger That Is The Question

Were not actually living life according to his pbuh sunnah or Quran, but still when someone says anything bad about our Prophet pbuh we get angry. Aren’t we being just as disrespecting of our prophet when we don’t cultivates his values, conduct, character in our lives and our families lives? When we ourselves are making fun of him by saying we are his followers but not following his pbuh way. There was a sahabi raa that wanted the prophet pbud to advice him, so he asked: “Advice me”. Prophet Muhammad pbuh said :” don’t get angry”. The sahabi asked again, because he was expecting another message. The Prophet pbuh said to him three times :”don’t get angry”.

The Sunnah Of Taif

Here is our situation. We are killing a person that disrespected our Prophet pbuh. When the sunnah of our Prophet, when he walked back from Taif, when he was brutally wounded, and blood on his clothes, he prayed for the people of Taif. And alhamdolillah a few years generations later, the muslims in Taif increased.
We don’t behave or talk or deal with others in a muslim way. Because of our un-islamic behaviour, people think that if this is what Islam is, than they are not good people. Since we are so poor ambassador of the religion we love, people talk bad about our religion. But they don’t understand. The religion is in fact great, but we don’t live our life as beautiful as a good muslim. When we make mistakes and people know we claim we are muslims, they interpret, this behaviour is Islam. But they are wrong. The sunnah of our Prophet and the Quran, is Islam. How we manage or don’t manage to implement it in our life, is our attempt to be a muslim. Our actions tells us if we are true in our claim.

An Easily Approachable Leader – Even for Poor People

When people once in a while came to talk with Prophet Muhammad pbuh, they didn’t know the etiquette of how to behave towards him with respect. Some times when people were very rude while addressing the Prophet pbuh when he pbuh was with his companions, because of the companions love for our Prophet pbuh, they easily took out their sword, and was thinking of killing this person. The Prophet pbuh because of his perfect wisdom, calmed them down and addressed the person in the most nice way. He pbuh didn’t say : he disrespected me, cut his throat”. He had such a good dealings with people. It is because of his good manners and dealings he managed to change hearts. Not by killing anyone or everyone who disagreed with him or didn’t give him the esteem he has. It is only through good behaviour we can change bad behaviour. Hate will not decrease hate. Only love can do that. When we start living our 70% of lives practising his deen we will be able to change other people’s bad opinion of our Islam and our Prophet pbuh. If we are not going to follow his ways, than we should be careful of claiming that we are muslims. Because our wrong behaviour is disrespecting and dishonouring him pbuh. And most people hate Islam, because it is true that we are more progressive than practising of the beauties of it. May Allah guide us of becoming good practising muslims. And understand that killing one person that disagrees with us today, will make ten more people on that persons side tomorrow. Instead use good aadab, sunnah, reasoning a try to change their thinking. Killing them won’t change the fact that they think wrong of us. And keep in mind that german person that used a lot of his life talking bad about Islam and even disrespecting our prophet pbuh. A few years later he converted to Islam, because he found beauty in it. After converting he was so guilty of his disrespect of our Prophet pbuh, he went on Umrah in the Masjid Nabvi and asked for forgiveness. Allah managed to turn his heart towards the truth. From that example we can learn if we stop killing people who hate us, and instead try to reason with them and show them through our behaviour why we are muslims. Not only by lip-service. May Allah make it easy for us. Aameen.

Today One Person Disagrees With Us

We kill him. Tomorrow, ten more people says the same as him. We kill them ten, the day after that, a hundred people say the same as he does. We don`t get more followers of our deen by killing everyone who disagrees with us? We can rather try to change people`s opinions by reasoning with them. Show them why Islam is beautiful. If we do the exact opposite of Islam, and somehow expect that people will love it, we do not have much hikmah to know that were breaking a bridge. Prophet Muhammad didn`t get more followers by killing others. He changed their hearts and reasoned with them, and that reasoning was backed up by his good behaviour, character, conduct. In public and in private. If we follow his pbuh way, we will also one day manage to change hearts and be the reason why people come back to Islam. May Allah make it easy for us. Aameen.

positive parents, children, upbringingGood and bad health is in the hands of our Creator. There is also something we have in our hands to change the situation. Many people know the right of the parents and talk and praise those who treat them well. Though we need to talk more about how parents should treat their children also. Their childhood shape them for their adulthood. If we want them to be good contributors as adults, we nee to know how to mould them into what we want them to become. I have a few thoughts about this, I would like to share.

Children Above Their Age

Children need to learn the parents rights. The parents also should be aware of the children’s rights. If a childs` opinion is validated, and their parents make them feel like they can contribute to the conversation, even with their little intellect at the moment. They would be able to, see with amazement, that many times children say words that are above their age, and good for the conversation. It is the parents that build the childs` confidence in the beginning. Just like any spouse want un-divided attention, children also need a good dose of positive attention, love, care and nurture from their parents. If the parents are able to show this in a good way, they help build healthy people who are an asset for the community and the people they interact with.

parents recognize childrens abilites and efforts,Don`t Downplay Their Abilities

It is so easy to for a parent to say to a child, don`t be disrespectful. Though the parents must also realize that if you treat he/she with respect, and teach them how to behave in a good way, with encouragement, they will. If the only way to get any attention is when children does something wrong, of course, the child that need validation, would do anything for it. To bring out good qualities in our children, we must comment positively and take out time to listen to them and reason with them, to help them think good. Not only teaching them what to think, but how to think right. Don`t downplay their abilities. That is where they learn to downplay their own abilities, in their relations as adults. At the time a child is born, it is like a white sheet. Whatever it becomes and how it behaves depends on the values that are cultivated in him/her. The parents need to realize their responsibilities before it is too late. Encourage your children and see them blossom. Build confidence and self-esteem while keeping them humble and filled with humility and gratefulness. Knowing that good would not happen to them without the will and help of Allah and hard work. When they don`t win the game, appreciate their efforts, because they worked hard. We need to raise children that will be good for the community, muslims and non muslims, but most importantly, good for Islam. May Allah help all elders and children value and respect each other and fulfil their rights and obligations towards each other in a sunnah way and help them become resourceful for the community and to each other.

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.

 

smiley foul smell

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.

harassmentBefore I only HEARD that muslim women have experienced harassment from other non-muslims just because they believe in one God. Today I almost experienced it myself. It`s really sad that people tend to these ways just because they have a hatred towards muslim women who cover themselves.

Our Prophet has also for over 1400 years warned us against this fact. That we should wear clothes that we are not recognized so that other non-muslims won`t be able to harass us. Living in a non-muslim country where it`s not allowed to use niqab certain places it`s not that easy to not be recognized as muslims.

Maybe some non-muslims has this jealousy or hatred inside of them that they just can`t tolerate other people being practising muslims. No wonder why they try to make debates in the media with non-practising muslims to try to put Islam in a bad light.

I guess hatred can bring out the worst in people. A few months ago but it proves a point. Watch this.

When we explain something to a God-fearing person we know for certain that it will have an effect. But how can we make the non-muslims understand how important hijab is when they don`t even believe in the afterlife and it`s punishments?

“For one of you to be stabbed in the head with an iron needle is better for him than to touch a woman who is not permissible to him.” [At-Tabarani – Sahih]

Of course one can say that the same thing is happening in Egypt where the majority are muslims. But there still is not an excuse because of the religion it is because of the bad culture that has arisen there. So if such a bad culture is arising in this country we need to do something to prevent this from happening before it hurts more muslimah`s.

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.

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!
