none is perfectSometimes one can have in oneself different things that one does not know enough about, to prevent oneself from. One of these actions is ar-riya or ostentation. Below there will be mentioned different aspects that show the signs of riya and afterwards you can read the cure for such disease also. May Allah help us achieve true ikhlas and be mukhlas in our deeds, in sha Allah, ameen.

Imam Mawlud outlines three signs of riya. The first two are laziness and lack of action for Allah`s sake when one is alone and out of view of others. When alone, a person becomes unable or unwilling to perform acts of devotion, like reading the Quran at home, but in the Mosque, in the presence of others, he finds the drive to recite. (This does not mean that one should not respond to the inspiration one receives when in the company of people who are doing good deeds).

Another sign is riya increases ones action when praised and decreases in the absence of such praise.

The Prophet (pbuh) said: “When a believer hears somebody praising him, his faith (iman) increases”, not his pride.

The Imam says: ” The cure of riya is seeking out purification of the heart by removing four things, love of praise, fear of blame, desire for worldly benefits from the people, and fear of harm from the people.This is from nurturing the certainty that only Allah can benefit or harm one.

The Prophet (pbuh) has said:

“Be mindful of Allah, and Allah will protect you. Be mindful of Allah, and you will find Him in front of you. If you ask, ask of Allah. If you seek help, seek help from Allah. Know that if the whole nation were to gather together to benefit you with anything, it would benefit you only with something that Allah had already prescribed for you. And if (the whole nation) were to gather together to harm you, it would harm only with something that Allah had already prescribed for you. The pens have been lifted and the ink had dried”.

The practical treatment is veiling one`s actions from the eyes of the people. This way, one`s own intention are protected from vanity. This does not mean to never to deeds in front of others, but to do them also when others are not watching.

It is recommended to read surah Ikhlas (the 112th surah from the Quran). The surah affirms the oneness of Allah and negates the possibility of there being anything comparable to him. The word ikhlas comes from the arabic root khalusa, which means to be pure, as in pure honey or pure milk. As for one`s piety, it could never be pure unless free from ar-riya. Allah loves the people who are mukhlas, sincere. Imam Abu Hasan shadili once prayed:

“Make my bad actions the bad actions of those whom you love, and do not make my good actions the good actions of those with whom You are displeased”.

It is recommended to read sayyidal-Astagfar.

Excerpt taken out from the book “The  Purification Of The Heart”, written by Hamza Yusuf.

The Supplication`s name is sayyidal-astagfar. It is a great supplication to be forgiven. If you memorize it and read it after every salat, you will in sha Allah be forgiven your faults. If you read it twice a day, one time in the morning and one time before you go to sleep, if you die, you will in sha Allah enter Paradise. If you read the supplication every day, you would also want to do more of ibadaah (praying to Allah). It is also very great to calm oneself and be in peace. I have used some time and memorized it, I hope each and every reading this would take out some time and try to memorize it and read it frequently in sha Allah ameen. May Allah forgive us our shortcomings and give us glad tidings of Paradise and a blissful life before and in the hereafter. Ameen summa ameen.

Our Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was promised Jannah, even though he repented to Allah a hundred times a day. If he, as being so pure and with a heart of gold repented, than what are we if we compare ourselves to him. The narration says that Abu Burdah Ra said: “I heard the Prophet (pbuh) say:

“O People, repent to Allah, for I repent to Allah one hundred times a day”. (Sahih Muslim).

Every muslim in this world has done deeds they regret for doing. Every muslim wants Allah to forgive him/her. Every person has their own way of asking forgiveness. Allah forgives people whom ask for forgiveness for a deed and strive to never do that bad deed again.

“When those who believe in Our ayat come to you say “Salamun Alaykum” (peace be upon you) ; your Lord has written mercy for Himself, so that, if any of you does evil in ignorance and thereafter repents and does righteous good deeds, then surely, He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful”.

This is my recipe for asking for forgiveness:

  • Keeping your wudhu at all times no matter if you`re at school or work. After you do wudhu and you step out of the toilet, read 2. Kalima, and InshaAllah in the Hereafter you would be able to step into Jannah from any of the eight gates of Jannah that you want to use. With the last drop of the water of wudhu you wash away the sins. Read more here.
  • Read “SubhanAllahi wabihamdihi, SubhanAllah hilAzim” 100 times after every salat when you have time for it. Than all your mistakes will inshaAllah be forgiven. The Prophet (pbuh) has said: There are two words which are light on the tongue, heavy on the scale and beloved to the Most Gracious. It means “How perfect Allah is and I praise Him. How perfect Allah is, The Supreme”. “And whoever says “Subhan Allahi wa bihamdihi” (Glory and praise is to Allah), one hundred times in a day, his sins will be erased, even if they are like the foam of the sea”. (Sahih Muslim)
  • The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) has said: “There is some kind of shadow upon my heart, so I ask Allah for forgiveness one hundred times a day.
  • It was narrated from Abu Bakr ra that he said to the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) : “Teach me a supplication that I may say during my prayer”. He (pbuh) said : “Allahumma inni zalamtu nafsi zulman kabira, wa la yaghfirudh-dhunuba illa anta, faghfirli maghfiratan min indika warhamni, innaka antal ghafurur-rahim”. (O Allah, I have wronged myself greatly and no one forgives sins but You, so grant me forgiveness from You and have mercy on me, for You are the Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful”. (Muslim, Sahih).
  • Read “Allah humma Innaka affuwon tohibbol afwa faafu anni” 100 times after you have read the salat.
  • Do wudhu thoroughly and well and read 2 nafl of wudhu before the salat, where your mind is focused at Qibla and the meaning of what you are reciting. Then inshaAllah you will enter Jannah in the Hereafter and your past sins will be forgiven.
  • Read Ayatulkursi after every fardh salat, before you talk to anyone, and InshaAllah nothing will come in the way of you entering Jannah in the Hereafter.
  • Read Salat-ul-tasbhi on a friday, Eid day or whenever you have time, but not when it is makroh time ( not after fajr or asr, when the sun is going up or down). It is called the prayer of forgiveness. You can read more here.
  • The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said: ” Allah will bring out a man from among my Ummah in the presence of the entire creation on the Day of Resurrection. Ninety nine (99) records of (bad deeds) will be spread out for him and each of these records, will be as far as the eye can see. Allah will then ask him: ” Will you deny any of these? Have my scribes been unjust to you?”.  He will say: “No, My Lord”. Allah will say: “Do you have any excuse?”. He will say: “No, My Lord”. Allah the exalted will then say: ” Yes you have a good deed that We have kept for you, for no unjustice will be done to you today”. A card will then be brought out in which the following  is written: ” I testify that there is no deity worthy of being worshipped except Allah and I testify that Muhammad (pbuh) is the Messenger”. Allah will then tell him: ” See your scale”. He will say: ” My Lord, what is this card? What are these records? “. Allah will say: “You shall not be wronged today”. The records will then be put on the scale and the card will be put on another. The card will then outweigh the records, for nothing can outweigh Allah`s Name. (Jami`At-Tirmidhi).
  • Read SayyidalAstagfar twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening before you go to bed. If you die that day or night, you will in sha Allah go to Jannah because you have read it. Read more here.
  • A hadith: It was narrated from Abu Hurayra Ra that the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said: ” Whoever says: ” La ilaha Illallahu wahdahu la sharika lahu, lahulmulku wa lahul-hamdu, wa huwa alaa kulli shay`in qadir” (None has the right to be worshipped but Allah with no partner or associate, His is the dominion, to Him is praise and He has Power over all things), 100 times in a day, it will be the equivalent of his freeing  one hundred slaves, and one hundred good deeds will be recorded for him, and one hundred bad deeds will be erased for him, and it will be a protection for him against the shaitan all day until evening comes, and no one will do anything better than what he has done except one who does more than that. (Sahih Muslim).

These are simple steps that erases sins even if they are many.  Remember that Allah can erase any sins as long as we strive to not do it again.  Pray for the whole of Ummah in your supplications, inshaAllah, ameen. This is how I pray whenever I have extra time to spend. Try to make good habits that last for a long time instead of reading 100 nafl one day and miss the prayers for the preceding 5 days because you got tired of reading the nafl prayers.

Even if we do the sin again, we should do astaghfar and do our best to ask Allah for forgiveness every time we fall short. There is not a person that doesn`t sin. But the muslims Allah likes the most are those whom ask a lot for forgiveness to Allah after they sin and try to avoid doing it again. May Allah make us of those whom always ask Him for forgiveness and makes us His pious worshippers. 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!

(“,) 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 (“,)

Naat/hamd-Quote of the moment :)

Saari duniya ke liye dard
se mahmor hain jo..
Ik faqat Rehmat-e-aalam
hi ka seena dekha..

Ye sab tumhara
karam hain Aka
ke baat ab tak
bani hoyi hain..

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

Kya ye zarra likhein
Shaan Unki, jin pe
bejhein Salaam
khud Khudai..

Though we might sometimes
have to struggle through thick
or thin,We will receive each
other’s support to be there to
win..And we will blossom like
this through eternity..
