At work. As doctors, advocates, engineers. We are often very proud of ourselves when we attain some kind of position in society. People who achieve some kind of business or work, with a big salary didn`t come to that point themselves. They probably had many people backing them up. First of all their parents, their siblings, their good friends, and those teachers that guided them to make good decisions in life. Without these people they wouldn`t have been where they are today. Not only these people. Also other people who backed them when they were in difficulty. Prayed for them when they had some kind of troubles. Not only elders. It could have been a supplication of someone whom you hardly know. The same goes when it comes to something good or bad happening in your life, that turns your heart towards Your Creator. When your heart already yearns for Your Creator, you only need a little help, to walk, to join the right path. A muslim brother or sister who encouraged you to pray, a spiritual teacher who helped you remember Allah. and the list goes on.

Each Who Helped Us

Most of these people I have talked about in this text, helped you unconditionally. They expected nothing in return. They helped thinking of you, not themselves. It is very important, that when we achieve some kind of position, that we don`t forget these gems. These gems, who helped us, when we were lost, and needed good advice. They saw the potential in us, when we didn`t believe in us, as much as we do today. The best we can do is, be with them and help them, and do good for them. If that is not possible, than at least pray for them. Supplicate for them, every day. I would certainly not have been where I am today, without those people who believed in me, throughout my life. Ya Allah, have mercy on those who has helped without me knowing it, and while me knowing it. Ya Allah, each who has helped me while me knowing it, or while me not knowing it, grant them infinite blessings in both worlds. Aamen. In every one of every infinite blessing, grant them infinite new blessings of both worlds. Aamen. Guide us to the right path, and keep us firm on the right path. Aamen. Without doubt, Allah is able to do all things. I put my trust in my and your Creator. Allah will suffice me. Aamen. Protect me from those I know are bad for me, and protect me from those I don’t know are bad for me. Accept this for every ummati. Aamen

svane familieMany people often neglect children’s need to be seen and heard and valued for who they are, where their abilities are appreciated regardless of their siblings or friends achievements. A childs joy, when their parents listen attentively, and value all the siblings individually, when they are together as a family, is important. Often we wonder why some adults are so quiet and not into talking that much. When they grow up amongst many siblings, where some are very dominating, it is obvious that other doesn`t get that much chance to blossom or show their abilities. It could lead to they not cultivate their talents as much as their potential. People in general grow better in the right environment. Since everyone has different needs, we grow the best in different places. Seeing your child as the individual he/she is and value them for who they are, without comparison to other, is important.

 

Undiscovered Potential

Sitting at the dinner table with the family, and giving everyone chance to respond and talk to the family, is must, no matter how old they are, because their opinions need to be valued, to make them feel that they also have important opinions. Who hasn`t heard a toddler or a young child say something that is beyond his/her age. By excluding some children from the conversations, we can damage their self-esteem, and prevent them from believing in themselves. The saying “ghar ki murghi daal barabar”, is quite funny and accurate to prove the point. People outside of the family, sees so much potential in a child, while within the family, he/she can be neglected.

 

Values Are More Important Than Education

Our parents might have had this way of raising us. If we havent learned from their mistakes, we have not learned anything worthwhile. What can be more important than moulding our next generation into beautiful/giving people with good values who has the confidence to stand for what they believe in. I`m sure if we ask our friends all of them has something to point out about how they got raised by their parents. Good solid education won`t do any good for anyone, if the conduct, character, morals, manners, self-esteem etc are not cultivated and sound.

 

When You Are On Right, You Will Be Rewarded

Teaching children that nothing comes in this world without hard work. There is no elevator to success, everyone has to take the stairs, one step at a time, as long as you work hard and abide by the rules, you are a winner, no matter the outcome. Even if others doesn`t value your efforts know that Allah sees your struggles and will reward you, in this life and next. A good environment starts at home and as the child grows older other places like kindergarten, school, college, work and friends will have an impact on them. If we don`t cheer our children for their achievements, no matter how small, they will find someone who does. And that someone isn`t necessarily a good influence on them. For them to have a solid confidence to say no to bad things, they must have a good dose of self-esteem and confidence, that is taught from their early years. When children realize that Allah will reward, they will turn to Him, instead of other people for validation. Help them see the beauty in their conduct and character not their appearance. Having a rich character, makes one feel good. The only way to feel good is to know that you are doing something right, and having trust that you will be rewarded for it by Allah.

 

 

happy feetSee, Hear And Value Your Children

Treat them as individuals. Cheering them for having good conduct, character, and filling their bucket of esteem and confidence, and cultivating good values in them, will help them in all their struggles in life. Helping them believe in themselves will make it easier for them to cope with challenges. There is no bigger favour a parent can do for his/her child. Being fair so that no one is excluded and everyone gets a fair chance to speak, is important. It proclaims a message of equality. We need to be fair when some of the children are more dominating. When we teach children to listen to each other, they will of course do that. Growing up in an environment where we can`t express our views without fear of being ridiculed by other siblings, is damaging. The parents can make rules for a healthy conversation/discussion at home and make sure that they are also followed. Since the parents are the shepherds of the family, they need to make sure that their children are under good care and that their individual needs are filled and they are given space where they grow best. They will be questioned about their care, from Allah.

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.

womens rights in islamIf a female member of your family had a doctor’s appointment, I`m sure you would have preferred it, that she was going to a female doctor. If your daughters wanted to learn swimming, I`m sure you would want the teacher to be a female. If we want less issues for girls/women in this society, we would have preferred that there were some women in the places where they interact the most.

It is so weird that people want their girls to be educated, but after their marriage, most of them has to stay home. Men want doctors as their wife, but yet would prefer it if she stayed home. What is the point of taken a degree if you`re not going to make it of any use? If we want the women of this Ummah to be active in the community we have to help them through the hurdles of everyday life so that they also can contribute. Because they have a lot of potential, and should be heard.

When we let the girls and women of this Ummah take an education or work, we have to know that they are going outside of the safe zone “home”. We need to make sure that they are safe. They will meet all kinds of people be it at workplace or at the university. Some people would look at them with the wrong intentions. We need to prepare them for how they are going to react to that, how they can prevent it, and if they come in a dangerous situation, how to get out of it.

Some points that can keep you safe :

  1. Correct hijab is very important. A least it would minimize the dangers.
  2. Girls/women should learn self-defence.
  3. Walk in groups.
  4. Ask your parents to pick you from the station. If it`s dark outside and late.
  5. When you`re alone, don`t take shortcuts through the forest.
  6. Walk where there are people.
  7. Don`t talk with strangers.
  8. Always let your family know where you are and who you`re with.
  9. Stay away from cars that stop by to ask the address of any place.
  10. Another thing that is quite important is that, just because there are other people in a place, doesn`t make it safe. I heard about some young boys here in Norway, who were drowning. They called for help. Even though there were people there that heard them, no one helped them.

These point will at least minimize the risks. Girls /women has to be cautious wherever they are and whoever they`re with.

Just think about it, if you raise a daughter/sister and she becomes a doctor, teacher, nurse, scientist or anything similar within the boundaries of Islam, she would be a powerful contributor to the community. We need people in the community that helps the Ummah rise again. To help them through their difficulties. Every good deed she does, even if it is in her job-description, you would reap a reward as well, because you made it possible for her. Every person she helps, good deeds will be transferred to your account, without it decreasing in her own reward. You can do the calculation. Allahu Akbar ❤

May Allah give us barakah in our lives, keep us steadfast on the deen, help and guide us throughout our lives, accept our good deeds and sincere efforts and give us inspiration to help the Ummah rise out of every problem. ❤ 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!

USE YOUR OWN VOICE TO RAISE YOUR OPINION!

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 (“,)

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