img_2381Personally I have nothing against any non-muslim. But when it comes to sects (Qadiani) that claim they are muslim and make other who are interested in Islam a non-muslim by following their beliefs. I do not like that at all. I also am not fond of the idea that maybe they by their work are making muslims, become non-muslims by becoming their followers. 

When A Brother Leaves His Prayer 

It sort of is a feeling like when one muslim prays all his prayers on the scheduled timings, but suddenly comes in the wrong group of people and leaves the salah. I would hate that to happen to anyone. In this case the other person who starts following their sect becomes a non-muslim. I hate that. In this case he doesn’t only leave his salah but also the religion Islam. 

What Concerns The Ummah, Must Concern Us 

Brotherhood in Islam is supposed to be that when anyone from our muslim brothers and sisters are in pain/suffering/decreasing in faith/guidance, it should worry us. If it doesn’t, we are not on the right path and haven’t got rid of bad feelings in our hearts for each other. Everyone does anything to help the situation according to their means. But not seeing it as an issue, is in itself an issue. 

Put Aside All Differences 

There won’t come someone from the outside to help us with this. We must put our differences aside and struggle to keep each other on the right faith. A person becoming an atheist/jewish/hindu/christian should also be our concern. But when Qadianis claim to label their belief with our belief they are misusing our name. That is not ok. 

We Need Tools To Decline Any Pressure 

Living in the west we can’t take it for granted that all of the next generations will stay muslims. That is why we must teach our children and youth – give them good tools so they can fight the troubles we meet living as a minority in the west. We must unite on this cause, if we want our generations to come to be an ongoing charity for us, when we are no more, and not generations that will send punishments to us, because they are not following Islam. The hope and fear a good muslim parents for their child to be good, must be pro-active. If the sect (Qadianis) or any other religion is actively trying to misguide our children. We must help them to be able to decline their pressure. We must give them the social environment and good friends, feeling loved and a part of our Ummah (not outsiders) strengthening brotherhood/sisterhood, so they won’t join other groups without being able to denounce the pressure of them preaching them wrong information/making them leave Islam.

Make Them Feel They Belong To Our Ummah 

Often i think when other faiths (sects) sees an outsider” they easily can give that person a feeling of belonging to a group. We need to accept our children and youth as they are and be patient with them following our ways. We must not once make them feel like they do not belong in the click in the mosque or any other group. Or that they are not good enough. That could easily make them feel like an outsider and an easy victim for someone preaching another belief.

An outsider” – An Easy Target

I’m afraid that even if one person leaves Islam because of this, we have not done enough to enlighten our youth that they are not on the right path. Now it is not merely about they having freedom to practice their deen. It is about the fact that they are misguiding our muslims to leave Islam. That is not ok. That is why our mosques in Norway must do more to keep us away from them. And we can’t do that without talking about how and why their belief is not Islam. The most important rizq we have is our faith and guidance. We can`t let anything or anyone jeopardize that. Giving a deaf ear to dangers we are facing is not a good tactic if we want to succeed. What faith and values we leave in our children should be our biggest concern. This is our real sarmaya, that will benefit us also in the hereafter. May Allah help us find solutions. Aameen.

-muslimah.

stressed outIf and we try to understand why some people behave or say something, instead of just looking at how they behave or what they say, we can easily “help” the situation by responding accordingly.

Why Did You Yell, Dad? 

For example, when your toddler runs to pick up his football from the road. Most parents would become angry at him (yell) after they’d save him from the car on the road. A child doesn’t understand that your yelling and “danting” because you care. He will think it’s the opposite. We yell when we’re angry, but we also yell when we’re scared. The response is the same : yelling, but the reason behind it is difference according to ones feelings. Don’t think you know anyone when you only know their response and not their reason behind. Or the pressure they are experiencing.

Respond With Empathy

Everyone responds to things happening in their life according to their situation. You will surely see a different respond from people experiencing tension and stress in life compared to those with a tension-free life. It’s easy to say, he/she responds in-appropriately. Without being in the exact same situation yourself with the same amount of pressure, you have no idea how you would respond.

How Much Pressure Can You Tolerate? 

It`s like the tv-program “Myth Busters”, that wanted to see how stressed a person would become if he/she was tied and a drop of water would fall on his/her forehead. How long would it take before that person, would say “stop”. The amount of pressure a person can take is individual. When you have no idea what another person is going through. Please keep your own comments for yourself. God forbid may Allah not put you in a similar situation because of your arrogance and little empathy.

-Muslimah

outward, inward, tazkiya, soul, dhikr, tawbah, ghusl, wudhu, sheikh mohammed yaqoubiIt is not un-common in the days we are living in that people are affected negatively by their community. I have noticed this from when I was younger, though the materialistic values have increased. Often children are more obsessed about what they own so they can brag to their friends, and be of those whom are admired. Is the fact that someone has something a reason to admire that person? It depends, if we are talking a pure heart, good conduct, righteous friends, good company, good values, than I won`t disagree at all. Unfortunately what people rather admire is the fancy house, new cars, new fancy clothing, numbers of followers or friends etc. When in fact these things doesn`t say anything about the person’s real treasure.

It Is Not illegal To Be Rich

People are competing in a race where there is no goal. The development of technology in the world is increasing so rapidly that even if you have a Ipad 5 today, in a few months 7 or 8 will be out in the shops. We can`t keep up with this race without losing what is really important; our values. What is important is not how big your house or car is, but rather your values as a person and how close you are to Allah. It`s not illegal to be rich, but with it comes a lot of responsibility. In fact, the people whom have the most money will be the people whom will be questioned about where they used it. Alhamdolillah, tabarakAllah, my point is not that we sell everything we own, to live a simple life. It is mear to point out that just because you are rich, doesn`t mean that you can`t have the right values. In other words, focus on what is important, your values, your character and conduct. Your life and your hereafter.

Compete In Cultivating Right Values

Instead of competing in number of kids and size of house and number of cars, compete in cultivate the right values in your children and family, so that no matter how much you are blessed you will always remember the sacrifices our previous predessors made for us to be where we are now.  Not only that, but your family will appreciate the blessings more when they realize that it could have been given to others. When in fact they know the suffering of children around the globe. They would most probably like some children, join other friends and collect money for them, with what they can do. By selling lemonade and mum-made cakes, early in their life they will realize what is important. Everyone has a right to have a good life and food and water and home and security. Though because the worlds treasures are not equally divided between people, some have more than others. It doesn`t necessarily mean that they deserve what they get. They are being tested by Allah for what they are doing with what they have. At the same time it will keep our feet on the ground, when we realize that all of this is not given for our joy. The test of ease and the test of difficulty. Some people are tested by given a gift, others are tested by witholding a gift from them. Allah knows how much patience people without the basics in life, has to go through, of troubles that might be the reason why they will go to Paradise, years before the rich muslims. Abu Bakr Siddiq raa gave away everything he owned before he died. He didn`t even leave anything for his children, just to be amongst those people that will be entitled to go to Paradise first. SubhanAllah what a determination.

The Inside The Same As The Outside

In the time of Islam and the years after, people were more worried about the qualities in them that were not seen on the outside, their clothing and what they own. Nowadays people are more worried about if their clothing is matching their shoes or hijab, or for men if they have the right amount of beard, with the right new trendy clothing. Gotta look smart. If we put just as much effort in cleaning our souls, and our hearts, as we do in keeping ourself looking awesome, than maybe our inner and outer self would be the same. If we won`t do that than it might happen that our outer self looks better than our inner self. For people with the right values, their goal is that their inner self is better than the outer self or at least just as good. To keep their sincerity and intention correct they do as much they can in secrecy, to avoid show-off in their deeds. Whereas most of us are those who share the smallest achievement in regards of ibaadah, when in fact a simple evil-eye-affect can reverse it for us.

It Is A Worldwide Muslim Issue

I see people being consumed in things that aren`t good for their hereafter, and I feel so helpless because I don`t know what to do or how to help them. I`m no expert and not even close to what experts in this field could help us with. All I know is that mosques need to talk about so many topics in their gatherings with sisters and brothers and youth that needs to be dealt with asap. Or else we are in hands of our own destruction. This is a worldwide problem everywhere were there are muslims. May Allah preserve us and help us and guide us and give us a heart that accepts guidance. Aameen summae aameen.

O turner of hearts, keep our heart firm on your religion, deen. AllahWhen someone does some wrong to you, it is allowed in Islam to do the same amount of wrong back, though Allah likes those who forgive people more than those who want justice for their harm. There was Saudi man whom forgave the killer of his family member, if he memorized the Quran. He made that as a condition to forgive him. SubhanAllah not only did he forgive, but something good came out of it as well, that will give them reward for it til eternity. It has probably changed his heart as well. Who can have the whole Quran memorized in his heart, without it changing his/her heart for the better. SubhanAllah ❤

 

Innocently Charged

How can we know that we are eligible to an eye for an eye equality, when someone wrongs us? For example, if someone blames a student, that he got help during the exam, and he is innocent, and he gets punished for it. If it later comes out that he was charged by something he was innocent of, how will they be able to fix the damage that was made on that persons reputation, loss etc.

 

Win People`s Support

We need to be careful of not letting our bad thoughts about some people, direct us to further harm them in any way. Whether that person has to pay back the fully recompense in what he did to you, depends on your situation. If you have a pen that you have stolen from someone, and someone steals it from you too, you can not go around accusing the one whom stole it from you, because the way you got that pen, wasn`t correct according to Islam. If you had bought a pen, had the receipt and then someone stole it from you, or tried to do so, your accusations would have been valid. How can we accuse other of doing us wrong, when we ourselves haven`t followed the rules and regulation properly in accordance to the sunnah and Quran. It wouldn`t have been fair. Even if we managed to win people`s support here, we would be doomed on the Day of Judgement, when Allah would ask us, how we got that pen?

 

Can You Fix A Broken Glass

This is why it is so important for muslims to understand the fact, that for us to have blessings in a bounty, we need to follow the rules and regulations of the Quran and sunnah. If we will not do that, some way along the way, that bounty, could instead harm us or be harmful to us, because our way of earning the reward, was haram. The best way to rectify this is to ask for forgiveness, make amends, and do the right thing. A glass that is broken can`t be put together. Not everything can be fixed. As long as we make amends and pray for the people we have harmed, and ask forgiveness for them, we will be forgiven for it. It is easy to put a hole in the wall when we get angry, but fixing it after isn`t possible. It will never be the same again.

 

photo, develop, negatives, quote, lifeLet It Motivate You To New Goals

Some of these faults can happen from becoming blinded with hate and anger, and think that what happened to you was the fault of so and so. But there is one thing we often don`t realize. Allah is in charge of every one of us. He has our hearts in between his two fingers and can direct it to anything he wants. When he changes someone`s direction, no one can undo that. He made the entire universe, He is in charge, and the Most Wise. If and when something doesn`t go as we want, turn to Allah, because he is the turner of hearts, and can fix everything. He made the stars and the planets and the galaxy’s and all that is in it. I`m sure fixing our problem is a tiny job for Him who is All-Competent. Always turn to Allah. We need Him just as much when we are blessed as when we are deprived. Through His help our blessing is beneficial for us, and through His help we get directed to something better when we are deprived of what we want. Turn to Him always and you will find Him in front of you. And think Well of Him.

 

What We Decide Will Determine The Outcome

Sometimes Allah blesses us with something else than what we wanted, because he knew our potential. We don`t know what is best for us, because we don`t know as much as an atom compared to Allah whom is All-Knowing and All-Aware. The believer is blessed because whatever happens to him if it is something good, he thanks Allah. If what happens to him was bad according to him, he practices patience. Sometimes what happens to us looks like a disaster at the time, but Allah willing, He can turn it into something good in the following years. For instance loss of a family member, or a job or someone leaves us. We have two choices. Go around being miserable in years coming and being blind to everything that is going good and all the opportunities that are coming our way, or we can make new goals, start on a project or education that will open new doors for us. We are not in control of what happens to us, but we are in control of how we are going to react to it. Let it break us or let it motivate us towards new achievements. It is our choice. What we decide will determine the outcome.

destiny, worry, decree,You know when you fall from eleventh floor to ground zero a couple of times in the elevator, you learn that it is better to take the stairs, at least the risk of falling would be somewhat less there. We spend our whole life planning for that vacation, project, education, wedding or children. Most often we forget that we are not the best of planners, but Allah is. Often the circumstance changes and we have to make a new plan. It is actually because we are not in control of what is going to happen in our life. Allah is in control. He knows what we need and gives us what we need, not always what we want. Sometimes because He knows that what we want might be hurtful for us, either now or maybe sometime in the future. So He re-directs us to something else. Most probably years after we thought we`d die if we wouldn`t achieve something, we are actually living a more happy and contented life, without that thing or achievement.

 

He Gives Even To Those Whom Don`t Ask Him

No one is in control of what is going to happen to them, but we are in control of our reaction to it. Instead of cursing the fall and wailing, we should be content about what happens, and have faith that Allah knows what He is doing. He gives to does that doesn`t ask Him, how can we think that He wouldn`t give to those whom remember and prays to Him throughout their day. Sometimes most often we make a cup of tea or some food for some guests. In the meanwhile some other guests come before the ones it supposedly was made for. So they eat and drink the food instead. For example you have a cup of coffee, you take the cup to you mouth to take a sip. Suddenly you spill the coffee. It wasn`t in your destiny. Allah had written that you weren`t supposed to drink it.

 

Ask For The Shoe-lace

That is exactly why the alims quote our Prophet Muhammad in the famous hadith about the shoelace. Where, Mother of the Ummah Aisha raa was told from the her husband pbuh, if you don`t ask Allah for that shoelace you wanted, and he doesn`t make a decree about the fact that you are going to have it, no power in the universe can give you that shoe-lace. So instead of putting the power in your own hands. Put it to the one who can, Allah. Have faith in Him and His Decisions. If and when you want something, pray to Allah for it and work to achieve it. If it is decreed by Allah, no one can take it away from you, and if it isn`t decreed for you nothing can make it yours. If you get what you want, be happy, and if you don`t get what you want, be happier because than Allah has something better in store for you. What you and everyone else need to do is to show some patience and have trust in His Giving. We are not in charge here, Only Allah is. And He knows what He is doing, but we don`t. Surrender to the will of Allah. May Allah help and preserve each and every person. And remember supplication can change qadar / destiny.

contentLife is not always easy, but it is neither always difficult. With the difficulties we have blessings. Sometimes we recognize them and become grateful. The part of this life is that nothing is perfect, because perfection is only in Paradise. If everything would have been all good here, why would we want to work for Jannah?

 

Comfort In Good And Bad Times

We cannot have the goal in our life that we always want to be happy, because there will always be ups and downs in life. In a little period of times there can be more negatives than positives and seemingly the opposite. If we learn to be content, than maybe whether things are going against us or not, we would be happy with the decree of Allah and be blessed even in the difficulties. Though it might not be easy, but hey, we have Allah right? We are guided to pray to Him, ask Him, Send blessings on our Prophet pbuh. We find a great source of comfort in good and bad times by these gestures. Not just that we are also given multiple good deeds in our account for them. It is for our own good. If we pray or do these good deeds, we are only doing ourselves a favour, there will not be any difference in Allah`s Greatnesss if we don`t pray. But we might lose Jannah if we don`t. What bigger loss is there, than to lose the eternity in a place where “No person knows what is kept hidden for them of joy as a reward for what they used to do”. (Sahih, Muslim). Prophet pbuh has said : “The Lowest of the people in Paradise in rank will have ten thousand servants. The last person to enter Paradise will from amongst it`s dwellers will be a man by whom His Lord, High and Exalted – will pass. He will tell him: “Get up and enter Paradise!`. The man will frown and say: “Have you left anything there for me?`. Allah will then answer him: “Yes, for you is the like of the wealth of the world. SubhanAllah!

 

The Hikmah Behind It

If we always ask Allah for contentment with His decree, than whatever life will give us whether it is good or not, we will be grateful in good times and show patience in bad times and always be contented with what happens. There is always a Hikmah behind a decision made by Allah, just because we cannot understand it, doesn`t mean it is without. Often we understand such things several years after something good or bad happened in our life.

 

The Best Of Riches

There is no greater satisfaction than being content.  Prophet has said: “Wealth is not having a lot of possessions, but it is having self-contentment”. (Sahih, Bukhari). When we understand that the biggest achievement is to gain Paradise, than everything else will be insignificant for us compared to it. When we understand that there is no other way to success, we will also try to work for it. May the people we love for the sake of Allah, join us in Jannatul Firdous, and may Allah help us in our struggle to work for it and bless us and give us barakah in every aspect of our life. 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.

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
