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.

-naat /nasheed read by Horia Faheem Qadri-

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.

deen, dunya 1It`s important that we don`t forget where we came from. Often you see people having nice cars or clothes and they are like in heaven 9 because it. That is a good thing and a bad thing. If you can afford it, yes buy the things you need, but there is no need to be extravagant. Don`t overdo it. That rule should be applied in every aspect of our life.

Sometimes you know people achieve a lot of success. Like new car, great job, beautiful wife/husband etc. If we don`t use these things to make our akhirah better, they are of no use. For instance, you use that nice car and go to mosques nearby and far away, to join the salah and other of their activities. The same car can also be used to go clubbing at parties. You have this great job, where you are making a difference by helping people in need. Or it could cause you to work that you forget the salah in the day. You may have a beautiful wife/husband that may treat you like a treasure, but are they making you come closer to Allah or making you skip the salah and other important obligations you have as a muslim/muslimah. Your spouse can be your ticket to hell or jannah. It`s in your own hands. Are you making choice that bring you closer to Paradise, or are you too much occupied in this world. We are not going to be here forever. Are you going to choose deen over dunya or dunya over deen? What you choose today, is going to affect the rest of your life, and maybe eternity. Be wise ❤ ❤

Some people think that the world has had so much progress. We are living in the 21 century and have the newest technologies. Different countries are so behind us in the west. Life is so much easier and better now than what it was before. What we see as a progress could also be regression. Just think. People living in asia or africa. They may not have and iPhone, iPad, Facebook, twitter or laptop, but they have each other. When we see these children they have the brightest smiles and are laughing and hugging each other. If you see the same age group in any country in the west, most of them are busy with their iPhone, Samsung and forget the most important stuff, just to talk together and be present in the moment.

deen, dunyaAnother point I would want to emphasize is what kind of society are we living in. Is it as advanced and good as we think it is? There is more cases of people who are depressed or suicidal and an increasing number of people with mental diseases. We have everything materialistic but not that much tranquility/sakina. Family structure has changed. Lesser joint family system. More people who live alone and are lonely. People are busy with their stuff and think that they have it all. If we look back in time when the Prophet pbuh lived he and the following generations of tabieen after him pbuh they experienced real contentment in their life. They didn`t own that much but were rich of heart. They had better manners than what we do nowadays. They had faith like a rock, nothing could move it, with firm believe in the afterlife. They maintained good relations with their relatives. Families lived together. They were people of great character. THEY had it all.

It all depends of the set of values that are important to you. What we see as development could actually be regression. To achieve those heights as the sahaba and tabieen we need to go back to our roots. We need to choose deen over dunya. Only then will we prosper in this world and the next. May Allah help us and guide us. Ameen summa ameen.

prophet muhammad1Nowadays we often see that a lot of people are only nice to those who are nice to them. The minute someone says something harsh or even if they have a point, they easily remove them from their list of friends. I am such a person that I often give a lot of people multiple chances, in case they have changed. Most of the times I realize that we are all different. Everyone has something good and bad in them. We need to focus on the good, if we can, try to motivate others to become even better. There will always be room for improvements in us, no matter how we are, we can strive to become better in it. We need to cultivate good values and try to let ourselves be inspired to become better.

Our Prophet pbuh had a very good nature. Once some of his companions were discussing about whom he loved the most. The Prophet pbuh treated him in such a manner that he was sure that he was the most beloved to him, of his companions. The companion wanted the Prophet pbuh to say this. So he went to his pbuh`s home and asked a general question to the Prophet pbuh, although he thought he knew what the answer would be.

Prophet Muhammad pbuh said that he loved Aisha raa the most. The companion didn`t give up. So he asked the Prophet pbuh again, so he pbuh said, Abu bakr Siddiq raa. He still kept on asking, and Muhammad pbuh kept telling name of other companions.

This is how Prophet Muhammad pbuh treated people in such a good manner, that they thought it was because he pbuh loved a them a lot. He was kind to people who were rude to him. Although one woman threw garbage on him pbuh every time he pbuh passed by her home, he pbuh visited she didn`t come one day, because he pbuh got worried about her health. He pbuh found out that she was ill. She accepted Islam, because of these beautiful manners. He taught us to strengthen the bond with those who cut them off. He forgave the woman who mutilated a close relative of his, because at that time she hated Islam, she accepted Islam.

Being forgiving is so rare in our society. If someone does something un-kind to some people, they often break all contact for years. May Allah strengthen the sisterhood and brotherhood of this Ummah, and help us apply his pbuh`s sunnah in our life. Of course forgiving someone doesn`t mean it automatically will be like before the fight. It means that you let go of all that hurt you, and move on. You don`t have to be un-kind back. Just decide that people are different. Some people can`t be friends, because they don`t go that well together.

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!

you should marry someone
who loves you more than you
