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.

muslim couple, rights and obligations, quran, love, rose, flower, marriageOften when some husband take good care of their wife, and fulfil their obligations towards her and their children, his friends and family might comment that he has become a robot, where his wife decides everything. I want to highlight a few thoughts about this and why people might say such things.

We all are striving.

Some people are doing a great job when it comes to following sunnah. Not only when their friends and acquaintances are with them, but also at the time when no one is with them accept their loved ones and Allah. Some men are not shy off being good to their wife. Why should they be? Prophet Muhammad pbuh has said, the best of man is the one who is good to his wife, and I am the best to my wives. He pbuh lived what he said. He was not shy off helping around the house and giving un-divided attention to his other half. He gave them importance and supported them. If men want to follow his sunnah, being a good husband is also part of his sunnah. Not only praying on time and giving zakat.

Muslims can not be shy of practicing some part of their deen

No matter what others say. Hazoor pak saw has said he is afraid of a time when the disbeliever will be proud of their disbelief and a true believer will be shy of practicing his belief. I`m sure even those who comment negatively towards other, have their moments of being an awesome husband, though they are afraid of admitting it, because they see it as a quality we should not find in a man. How can they think that following the sunnah is not a quality they should have in themselves. I remember a time when Hazoor Pak pbuh was not to shy to admit in front of all the sahaba`s that the one he pbuh loved the most was Aisha raa. If he pbuh was not afraid of showing his love in front of everyone, than neither should any muslim husband.

Have we ever thought why other people comment negatively?

1.Jealousy/envy. Why are they so happy?
2.Not knowing what being a man is about.
3.Arrogance. That work is below my worth/standard.
4.Hobby: Putting hurdles in lives of succesful people.
5.Wrong understanding of Islam. Our rights and obligations.
6.Bad company.
7.Bad role-models.

We do not boast about following the Sunnah

Or become proud of the fact that we are Sunnis. To what extent we follow the Sunnah, shows the intensity of our love for our Prophet pbuh. So sometimes people might try to hide their good deeds from people to the extent that they would not like anyone to find out. In case they maybe returned because the intention is changing. The Prophet pbuh his family and sahaba, went to a lot of struggles for us. We must find ways to keep our intentions in check, but shying away is not the solution. The society has come to such matters, that we need good role-models that are not shying away from showing the right path, they have found. How can we say that we love him pbuh the most and be afraid to show the world that we want to live like him pbuh and are striving to cultivate his pbuh qualities in us. May Allah make us proud of our heritage in Islam, and help us practice it to as close to his pbuh life as possible. And not being shy of good conduct, even if we have people in our circle who are against it. May Allah guide us to good, till we accept nothing but good. May Allah mould us into what He wants us to become. Let us reach excellence in those qualities Allah and Hazoor pak saw like. And take out of our heart, soul and body, those qualities Allah and Hazoor pak saw dislikes. Aameen.

love between spouse, sunnahIt is good to see that the community has seen the value of educating people before they get married to make sure that they are familiar to their responsibilities and their rights. Alhamdolillah. That is a great start. I feel that we need dig a bit deeper into the issue of marriage. To get a better result we must start earlier. First of all. Most of parents are not aware of the rights their children have to choose their own spouse, and mostly the relatives put many roadblocks in their way, if they don`t want two people to join in marriage. To give back the two individuals right to marriage, we must also educate their parents and their relatives, meaning the elders. Mostly whom has a twisted interpretations of Islam, and therefore also the practice.

The Struggle Is Real

If the mosque could have dars for parents that have children who are in their teens, it would help them understand, what kind of struggle teens have. We need to help parents understand that it is not easy for them to live here in the west and still stay pure. Parents can use the life of Sahaba to educate the teens on how they lived their life and what is expected from them according to Islam. Practice what they preach. Sadly most parents spend their time on matters that are pretty un-islamic. Teens learn love from the media, bollywood, hollywood and dramas, and think that they portray the right kind of love. WHen in fact they are not even near it. If the teens are taught about love through the lives of Prophet pbuh and Sahaba raa they will be educated in what could give them a more fulfilling and lasting marriage.

Asking For Trouble

If we want to get to the root of the problem, that is the parents and the community. If they have right values and live and act according to Islam, they will teach the same values to their children, through their life. Not just what they say or what image they have in their community. In most families the relatives wants to have a say when two families are thinking of marriage for their children. The chacha of fla fla is against it. Or the khallla of fla fla feels the same. Parents are also pressurized from the community and don`t know what to do. When in fact it is not the whole community that decides this. The people who want to get married doesn`t have a right to choose their spouse freely. When they meet so many roadblocks on the way. The elders are asking for trouble. Not only are they making it difficult for the ones that want to get married, to live a pure life, they are also increasing fitna by not accepting the good spouse that asking for their child in marriage. And most of all, I don`t understand how the alims or the mosque can close their eyes to this. Do they not know? Or maybe they agree to it. The culture is given precedence over religion. And that will make it more difficult for muslims to be true and sincere muslims.

Who Is To Blame?

It is to easy to put the blame on the spouses when a marriage fails. It is the fault of the community and their parents. What values they taught them from they were children and if they helped them follow Islam from them leading by example. It is the communities fault that they have not educated the parents. It is the parents fault that they have not taught the spouses their rights and obligations. When culture is more important than religion, we will have more trouble. We must get back to Islam not only by speech. That is where we will find blessings and everlasting happiness.

Prophets characterBarn og hijab. Jeg forstår at dette er et temaet som opptar flere om dagen, pga forslag om hijab-forbudet til Hadija Tajik. Jeg er ikke enig i at hijab forbys. Verken for barn eller voksne. Likevel synes jeg det er et viktig tema og det må diskuteres. Hijab oppfattes av de fleste nordmenn at håret tildekkes med et sjal. Men det er ikke kjernen i det å ha hijab. Hijab er mer enn det.

Haram-politi Hjelper Ikke

Jeg forstår at voksne muslimske foreldre er bekymret for sin barns Islamske identitet idag. De fleste foreldre ønsker det beste for sine barn. Og alhamdolillah, hvorfor skulle de ikke det? Noen tenker kanskje at dersom barnet begynner med hijab i tidlig alder, vil det være så vant til tanken, slik at når barnet kommer i tenårene, vil det komme naturlig og vedkommende vil fortsette med å bære hijab. Det som er dumt er at det kan gå begge veier. Islam er ikke en forbuds-religion. Men det blir oppfattet som det, pga vi nevner forbudene mer enn vi nevner skjønnheten i det som er tillatt. Vi forklarer ikke grunnen bak det som er tillatt og det som ikke er tillatt på en slik forståelig måte og enkel måte. Det at vi har et uoffisielt haram-politi, hjelper heller ikke.

Han Er Min Veiviser fvmh

Dersom vi vil at våre barn skal lære seg hvorfor islam er så vakkert og hvorfor vi elsker det, må vi lære oss å begrunne svarene våre. Vi må forklare årsaken til at noe er tillatt / ikke tillatt og hele bakgrunn-historikken. Ellers kan ting som tas ut av kontekst, bli noe helt annet enn det som er ment med ordene. Siden vi ønsker at andre medmennesker og familie-medlemmer skal forstå hvorfor vi er tilhengere av en så vakker religion, må vi bli flinkere til å forklare. Ikke minst bør, in sha Allah, vår egen karaktèr gjenspeile seg i det vi sier. Dersom vi sier at islam lærer at man ikke skal lyve, og vi lyver selv, vil ikke andre forstå oss. Vi vil bli sett på som hyklerske. Men ikke om vi tar frem forklaringen at ved noen forhold, er det faktisk tillatt å lyve, selv i Islam. Som for eksempel, når profeten fred være med han gjorde hijrah fra Mekka til Medina. Spurte noen på veien, hans følgesvenn Abu Bakr Siddiq måtte Allah være fornøyd med han, om hvem dette mennesket er. Abu Bakr Siddiq raa svarte: ” min veiviser “. Han visste at dersom de hadde funnet ut av om at han er en profet, så ønsket de ikke han godt. For at de skulle komme seg trygt fram, var de nødt for å snakke metaforisk. Det var ikke usant. Profeten, fred være med han, har vist oss veien til Islam.

Hijab Gjelder For Begge Kjønn

På samme måte, når vi snakker om hijab, handler det ikke bare om å dekke seg til. Hijab er også hvordan man oppfører seg, snakker, går og holdningen. Det er å vise beskjedenhet i alt dette, for at man ikke skal trekke til seg oppmerksomhet fra det andre kjønn. Det gjelder vel så mye gutter som for jenter. Problemet er at vi fokuserer for mye på jentene, siden de kan være tiltrekkende. Det er viktig at både jenter og gutter får forståelse av at begge kan være en prøvelse for hverandre. For at dette skal unngås, er det lurt at visse hensyn blir tatt. Dersom ungdommene ikke tar disse hensynene, kan det oppstå problemer. Det er viktig at vi snakker om konsekvensene, men samtidig henviser til hvor stor lykke de vil få om de følger dette. Ikke bare her i verden men også i det evigvarende livet, etter døden.

Den Reelle Skjønnheten Til Islam Er Profetens Seerah

Dersom barn i en ung alder opplever islam som en forbuds-religion pga deres strenge oppdragelse, kan det resultere at vi mister de fra religionen når det er voksne. Det er viktig at vi er åpenhjertige og ikke tvinger noen i religion. Men bruker diskusjon med begrunnende svar for å forklare hvorfor islam er bra. Det er viktig at vi hjelper barn med å få gode venner som er bra for dem. At de støttes og at de ikke er redde for å komme til oss for å snakke om noe som opptar de. En feil venn, kan gjøre mye skade. Vi kan ikke endre andres tankegang med å si at sånn er det bare. Vi må finne eksempler som er vise og forklare hvorfor det er viktig for oss. The beauty. Vi må hjelpe andre å forstå, det kan vi bare gjøre ved å forklare mer og mer.

Profeten fvmh Liv Har Smeltet Våre Hjerter

Jeg synes ikke det er viktig at barn bruker hijab før de er tenåringer. Men det som jeg synes er viktig er at barn får en god oppdragelse hvor foreldre er flinke med å cultivate the value and beauty of Islam, not only by preaching, but by practice. Siden barn er veldig smarte. De gjør ikke alltid det vi sier, men de vil gjøre det de ser at vi gjør. Dersom vi er sannferdige innenfra og ut, vil dette gjenspeile seg i dem. En troende er som et speil for en annen troende, når vedkommende ser noe dumt, sier han ifra. Og når de ser noe bra, setter de pris på det. Ris og ros. Vi må bli flinkere til å forklare for ikke-muslimer ikke bare hvorfor vi er enige i forbudene, men fokusere på at vi er enige i det som er tillatt, og hvorfor det er så vakkert. Vi må bli flinkere til å vise hvorfor vår profets fvmh perfekte handlinger / sunnah og hvorfor denne religionen er så vakker gjennom å følge de selv, og hvorfor vi elsker de mer enn noe annet på denne jord. Når vi muslimer, vil greie å vise alle de gode sidene ved det som er tillatt, vil også oppslutningen om vår religion øke. Vi er ikke interessert i å tvinge noen. Vi tror på at det er kun Allah som veileder. Men om vi følger den vakre seerah av profeten fvmh, vil vår vakre oppførsel, smelte hjerter. Akkurat slik som profeten fvmd, har smeltet våre hjerter. Og flere mennesker vil forstå hvorfor vår religion er perfekt, og de vil komme i grupper og akseptere den eneste og sanne religion. Måtte Allah gjøre det enkelt for oss. Aameen.

hijab, head, opinion, judge,You have probably read on FB the saying that the time before us people were told to look at muslims when they wanted to know what Islam was. Nowadays we say to people that they should rather look at the practice of the muslims for 1400 years ago, because today muslims have mixed Islam with culture. There is lack of knowledge about Islam that result in people following cultural traditions instead of their religion. Most of the time they just don`t know better. Often there are traditions in todays muslims culture that come from their ancestors which make people deviate from the true Islam and it`s teaching.

 

Study Islam Not The Muslims

It is very important that we explain to people whom are interested in Islam, that they should study it themselves instead of learning from looking at muslims. Just because a country is made on the name Islam, does not directly imply that they are practising muslims. A lot of people get very confused when women from a muslim country don`t wear a proper hijab and see to their amazement that a convert is using a proper, modest hijab. You can say a hundred times with your voice that you are a muslim, though it doesn`t mean a thing if it doesn`t show through your conduct.

 

Danger Of Being Misled

Everytime a new generation of muslims are born and they are not taught about the true teachings of Islam from the start, they are in danger of being misled by different people. When the parents don`t have enough insight or practice of their deen, how will they be able to teach islamic manners and conduct to their offspring?

 

Spreading False Information

We often see that some muslims that have deviated from the path are spreading false information about Islam, and trying to make it look bad, with the stories from their life. How they were forced to wear hijab or not allowed certain things. The non-muslims believe them, because they are telling them things about Islam that support their views about it. So they help them promote things like homosexuality in Islam or hijab is not that important, or mix gender gatherings are ok. All of these are misconceptions that deviate from the true teachings of Islam. What media and their promoters have to understand is that most of these people are disliked in the muslim community.

 

A Beautiful Face Catch Your Attention

Some of the people whom have deviated from Islam says that the hijab oppresses the women. Little do they think about the fact that hijab can be found in the world in different things: the earth has an ozone layer, every fruit has a layer to protect it from getting damaged, pearls are surrounded by a shell and so the list goes on. Where are your ethics. Is it more correct for a woman to show her body to strange men and call it freedom, or is it more correct for a woman to wear modest clothes that doesn`t allow other people to stare at her for the wrong intentions. Would you rather want a husband that want your body or a husband that want you because of you good conduct and character and your obedience to your Lord? The minute your body turns old, your husband is out the door, because he found someone else that is young and beautiful. A beautiful face can catch your attention, but it won`t be able to keep the heart. Good manners, kindness and decent conduct is what impresses the heart.

 

Times Of Ignorance Is Misleading The Ummah

Some people think that Islam is such a violent religion and that it oppress women. That is because a lot of ayats from different surah in Quran are taken out of their context and spread in the media. It has been said that in Islam it is allowed for men to beat women. That is partly correct. When the Prophet told about this he taught that you can beat her hand lightly with a miswak. The 15 cm long thin stick muslims use to brush their teeth with. Before this ayat comes several other ayats that say that in case you wife is disobedient, first admonish her, than forsake her in their bed, and if that doesn`t work than the husband is allowed to beat lightly with a miswak on the hand. The beating is mentioned in a way that it is only a symbolic way of declaring that you are dissatisfied with her and that she has gone way beyond her limits. The Prophet pbuh is our example, never once did he pbuh beat his wives. I want to mention the fact that he pbuh had 11 wives. Think about his pbuh patience. When they did something he disliked, he would simply not talk to them and become quiet. Nowadays we see practising muslim men forgetting this sunnah and beating their wife so badly that she gets bruised and bleading, leaving marks on her body. That is not what Islam has taught us, that is what the culture from the time of ignorance, jahaliyah, has taught us.

 

Increase The Dose

Our Prophet pbuh has told us that women are like a rib and the most crooked part of the rib is the upper part, i.e. the tongue. If you try to straighten a rib, it will break, but if you are gentle with it, it will blossom into something beautiful. I don`t think that there is one person that will disagree in the fact that most women can argue a lot and get out of hand. If their husband treat them with care, love and give them undivided attention, they will most probably change for the better. The problem is that most men doesn`t know about these things, or they have gone astray from the sunnah of the Prophet pbuh.

 

Inspire People. Dont Scare them away

We muslims have a responsibility to spread the right guidance of Islam, from our conduct. If our influence is negative on our surroundings we will have to bear the burden of our followers, because they learned it from us. Therefore it is highly important that we try to have a good and positive influence on our surroundings. The youth need good role-models and a motivating and inspiring way of learning about Islam. If you can`t inspire them than at least don`t scare them away from it either. May Allah help us help the youth by setting a good example from the sunnah of our Prophet pbuh. Ameen summa ameen.

hold firm to rope of allah, do not become divided.We often see that some people come closer to Allah bit later in their life. Maybe because dunya has occupied their life until something happens in their life, that turns their life around. From knowing nothing about Islam they gradually start to become more and more practising muslims.

Some obstacles that they meet when they want to become better is that other muslims keep throwing comments in their face about their past. I guess they don`t realize that when a person sincerely repents from a mistake, he / she is as if she has never done that mistake at all. When Allah has forgiven them, why are they then so full of grudges against them. The least they could do is to inspire those new practising muslims to excel in their deeds. Or do they actually want them to lose hope in Allah`s forgiveness. Instead of pushing them away from Islam, they should embrace their brothers and sisters and guide them to improve themselves. And they will receive immense reward for every good deed of theirs.

May Allah help us to see the good in others, and make us His patient, obedient slaves. 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!
