There is a reason why Allah had to state explicitly whom we can interact with and whom it is not allowed for us to interact with, whom we are allowed to marry and whom we can’t marry, when and whom we need to have a hijab in front, and whom we do not need this. 

In the time before quran (islam) those souls transgressed into sin and ruined their lives. So Allah had to make it clear for them, how they could save their souls. Ya Allah, protect us from going back to the practice of the time of jahiliyah. Aamen. Ya Allah, help every ummati out of their ignorance into the guidance of Islam. Aamen

People who are trying to follow the basics sunnah of Islam, are experiencing so much trouble within the ummah, because we have deviated from the right path. It is difficult to live a life as a practising muslim, when most muslim practice Islam progressively. Ya Allah, don’t let us deviate from the right path, after You have guided us, grant us from yourself mercy, indeed You are the most Merciful, and You are the bestower. Aameen 

muslim-child-boy-sujodWhen a child steps out of the toilet, most mothers will ask: “Did you remember to wash your hands, dear?”. If the mother is a practising muslimah, she will most probably add: “Did you remember to wash yourself behind with water, and did you remember to wash your hands after that?”. Muslims take cleanliness very seriously. We have been taught from our religion that the purity of our income (halal earning), the purity of what we eat (halal food), has an effect on how we behave, what we think etc.

A Man And The Desert

There was a man in the desert who had lost his camel, with food and water. He was all alone. Left to die. In his last effort to find help, he falls on his knees and prays to Allah “help me”. In response of this Allah says, ” how can I help you, when what you are wearing comes from un-halal resources. What you have eaten is un-halal food. What you have been doing is un-halal. How can Allah, accept your prayer.

marsmallow-white Say No To Marshmallows With Gelatine

We have difficulties in controlling our desires for money, status, beauty, position, wealth, satisfy needs of body. This is because, just like our body needs to exercise to be strong, and our intellect is in need of training to increase IQ, our soul needs spirituality to keep it strong, our will (nafs – myself) needs exercise to make good decisions in life and being able to withhold oneself from prohibitions. To be able to not steal a marshmallow, when your hungry, just because, there is some time before you will have your own marshmallow. Ability to say no to women / men who wants to have sex with you. (Like Yusuf a.s in surah Yusuf). The lesson talks about a young man who was seduced by a woman, but muslim women, young and beautiful, have difficulties, stepping out of their homes too, for college, for work, for mosque etc. Many have hijab, and many don’t. Nowadays many women beautify their hijab, which caused fitnah, and the main purpose of hijab is lost. How can youth and adults win the control over ourself in times of fitnah?

Cultivate Sweetness Of Salah, Khusho, Complete Fardh

Hazoor Pak pbuh has said, the first matter we will lose, when the fitnah occurs is the khusho. The salah was the greatest comforter for our Prophet pbuh. When he lost his first wife, Khadijah raa and His pbuh uncle, and his pbuh enemies increased, and he pbuh had no tribe leaders who could support him like his pbuh uncle. The incident of Taif, when he pbuh tried to win some support, and was humiliated and injured, by the people in that city. Allah gave him the gift of salah to find comfort. Imagine if the fitnah in world is increasing and we will lose what will take away our biggest comfort, what state will we be in than. Trying to find another comfort. Is there anyone who can comfort us as the deen of Allah? NO. Most of those who pray, knows how difficult it is to develop khusho in salah. It is a bit like sweetness of salah. No one will be granted the sweetness of anything, unless they first do the minimum fardh. So if the state of the ummah is, that about 10 percent of us read salah 5 times a day, those who read it once in a while, will not be able to cultivate proper khusho. So we need to help each other to encourage reading the five daily prayers, everyday, no matter what.

At The Time Of Desires Or Anger

In times of anger and desire, many people are not able to control their nafs. They go out of control, and later regret. Hazoor Paak pbuh has taught us to do wudhu in times of anger and desires. That will reduce it, and give us a control back. At the same time it cleans us from our impurities, when the sins falls with the drops that goes into the sink. We need to revive the sunnah of doing wudhu and keeping wudhu. A muslim who prays, must do wudhu minimum 5 times a day. If we keep ourselves in the state of wudhu, we will also have angels accompany us. And Allah will protect us. Purity is not only for the soul and the body. We must do tawbah and repentance everyday, to clean our impurities of bad qualities in the heart. The gossiping, envy, jealousy, arrogance comes from an un-clean heart. If we clean it everyday, the good of it will be seen more often. Our deeds says a lot about the state of our heart. If we are good in public and private, it is because of a good heart, purified from bad qualities. Ya Allah grant us to win the struggle and master our effort of perfecting our tawbah and repentance every day. For us, our family, friends and all ummati. Another aspect of purity is, to keep our clothes clean from impurities. Cleaning the private part, and clothing, in a way that it stays clean and pure. If it wouldn`t have been for or Islam, would we have done this? How different stains of najasa, impurity, has to be washed. If our clothing is not clean and our wudhu not properly done, our salah will not be accepted. Keeping ourself pure, in soul, body, clothing and food, is because of what we learn from our religion.

Tools For Youth To Find Comfort

From our child turns 9, he is guided to start salah. From the reading of the daily prayers he understands cleanliness. As he turns into a teen, he will experience more fitnah, at the same type of feelings he has to understand. His body is changing. He has to find himself. Wants and dislikes, hobbies, friends. Allah didn`t make salah a fardh from year of 9 without any wisdom behind it. If your child learns to do wudhu often to get control over desires, anger in puberty. At the same time finds comfort through salah. You have helped him find a way to cope through his teens, with tools that can help him prosper. Not only is he completing the fardh, his ranks are raised because of it. He is of those who will achieve the Throne of Allah on his head, because he turned to Allah in his youth. Allah has said it himself, the way to find peace is in the remembrance of Allah. As the youth starts praying, he can increase duas. Strengthen connection with Allah through supplications. Read drud sharif to increase love of Hazoor Paak pbuh. If we manage to instill these qualities in our children. There is not much that can stand in their way of bliss in this world or the next. And when something negative happens, they can find comfort through the salah and remembering Allah. When our earnings are halal, we keep ourself pure, inside and outside, and are able to develop sufficient self control, what we say and do, especially for the youth, will be good. All this is to manage the ups and downs of life, and keep us firm on the right path. If we are not clean in our private parts, or our soul, our the clothing is not from halal money, and we eat haram food. That will have a bad effect. We will be doing and saying things that are completely prohibited. When we help the youth and give them the proper tools, and good example through our practice, help them make good habits in their life. Allah will support them and keep them pure. Encourage them to make tawbah and repentance often, to cleanse their heart, every day. Ya Allah, make it easy for us, to help the youth master the muslim tools to finding comfort, help, support. So they can become the most succesful muttaqi of imam, of their time, Aameen.

In Islam, family is important. We know for a fact, if we manage to make healthy homes, we will raise healthy people, who doesn’t lack anything. They become healthy contributors to the community. A house with much fighting, where basic rules of Islam are not followed, and prohibitions not respected, lose the baraqah in their home and lives. 

Great Asr In Speech

The same similtude, can be drawn towards the dawah / islah of many muslim leaders. If they discuss about each other on forums, youtube etc, speaking bad, because of their differences of practising the same madhab as them, they are making a great mistake. Often where people fight often, their baraqah is taken away. If muslim leaders often engage in such talks, to talk against other, so themselves don’t lose followers. It will derive them of the baraqah in their work. The leaders are supposed to have great asr in their speech, that is supported by qualitative deeds of wisdom. When they say anything, it should, and will have an effect on the listeners. 

Don’t Go Pro, Before You Master The Basics

Less than 20 % of the ummah, is following the basic guidelines of Islam, rules and prohibitions. For the leaders to talk about sweetness of iman, khusho, ihsan, with people who don’t even pray everyday, is ineffectively. They need to talk on the level their followers are on. If most people have, difficulties to follow basic rules, we can’t think that “following pro rules, like the khazane of more” will motivate them. It’s like teaching children on a university level. It just won’t be understood.

Striving With Basics

The ummah, that have trouble with the sin of the tongue, heart and private parts,  won’t be motivated by always talking about paradise, and it’s joys. Leaders need to make surveys to find, what people are striving with. When people will understand why it is important to protect tongue, heart, private parts from sinning, only than they will be able to protect themselves. 

When Does Students Learn Best?

I have seen many mosques, where many sins of tongues and hearts can be seen, even in those who attend regularly, and are seen as pious because of some deeds. If we want our muslims to get to higher obedience of islam (university level in private) lets make sure, we must make sure they are following the rules and prohibitions in public and private, that were taught to them in kindergarden, high school, college, before they  can reach the university level of Islam. Because the test in mosque, doesn’t tell us if they are practising what they learned at home or with their friends. Before every teacher starts a course, he / she spends the first days, to understand the level of the attendees. This is because, the students will only learn best, when teachers teach from the level the student has. If it’s too easy or too difficult, this will have a negative effect on the progress of the student. And first and foremost, instill the godfear in people, Allah sees us. When we are talking with our friends, family and others. Allah is recording us. Without the right amount of godfear, no muslim teacher, will ever have a good student. No matter how many A’ he get on every test. Since the teacher can’t go home with his student, the result of test is only seen by Allah, when he is private. That is priority 1. Ya Allah, make it easy for muslim leaders to make surveys of their followers taqwa, so they can help them raise their obedience to Allah, and protect themselves from the fire. And instill a sufficient amount of godfear in us, so we protect ourselves from hidden sins too.  Aameen. 

At work, if we follow the guidelines the manager makes. Do a good job, and support our colleagues, most people will get a raise (wages) and position. The same similtude can be drawn for a believer and Allah. When a believer follows islams guidelines. And prevents oneself from prohibitions, the believers ranks are raised, rewards of good deeds are increased, supplications are answered, Allah becomes a friend. Do you think a manager would listen to a rebellious employee? No. Neither will our Creator. Allah listens and responds to every dua. But the obedient believer have a greater answer, not only does Allah answer their prayers, He also supports them all the time. Ya Allah, grant us to win the struggle in becoming Your friend. Aameen.

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.

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!
