Everyone wants to protect the people they care for. No matter what religion, color, ethnicity you have. You try your best to help, protect, provide for the people you love. If their air is polluted in your city, and your child has allergies or asthma, you will do everything you can to move to a place where he can live a healthy life. If and when we hear about a disease that is spreading because of a virus, almost every family member are eager to help those they love to take a vaccine against it. People are afraid of contagious diseases. When any person is infected with a contagious disease, that person is transferred to a special room in the hospital. Each and every who goes in and out has to wear special clothing. And the things that goes into the room, has to be special cleaned. This is to prevent the disease from spreading to the whole community or town.

The Types Of Diseases Are Many

Some have psychological diseases. Some has physical sickness. Some has sickness in their soul/heart. The last type of sickness, the sickness of the spiritual heart. The place where feelings, emotions take life. Both good and bad. Since we are talking about sickness, I mean feelings like, envy, jealousy, hate, harshness, backbiting, lying, arrogance, making fun of others, looking down on others, slander, etc. Something negative. Since niyah, ikhlas and integrity comes from the spiritual heart. The quality of these three, will affect the disease of the heart. If our heart is diseased, there is no way we will have pure good niyah, ikhlas or integrity. So as being a muslim. If we want Allah to accept our deeds, we have to correct this. Or else no matter how big or gracious deeds we are doing, or people think we are doing, it will be rejected by Allah. What good will it do for us, if the good we do is rejected, in the final account? Ya Allah, grant us to win the struggle of perfectly getting rid of our diseases in our spiritual heart. Aamen.

Choose Good Company And Halal Fun

A spiritual alive heart, who knows the value of spirituality and good behaviour, will not be able to spend time with people who has diseases in their hearts. Their idea of halal fun, differs. A spiritually dead heart, doesn`t mind going to places where he / she can do more sins, like backbiting, lying, slander, vicious tongue, chugl khaur, etc. The heart is dead meaning, these sins doesn`t seem bad. They have fun doing these sins. It`s darkening their heart making it black. On the other side, we have a heart who is spiritually alive, he / she is aware of the effects of sins on their life. They want to make sure that the fun they are doing is actually allowed in Islam. Doing sins, that increase your punishments, is not funny. But rather doing deeds that make their ranks raised in this world and the next, is fun. In other words, when these people step out of their house, towards work or school or any event, they will do the background check, how can I spend my day, doing the right matters, correctly, and also be in constant struggle of correcting myself in the process, because I really want to earn those rewards, without them being rejected. So someone they know, invites them to an event. They will ask for the details. Will there be music there? Will there be a mix gathering between the genders? What is the dress code of the event? hijabi or non-hijabi? What kind of people are attending? Sinners or practising muslims? Will there be halal food? Where is it? How will I be able to get there safely, while also in hijab? From these questions one can imagine, these people doesn`t play with their life. Going on an event, where they might commit sins, is a big issue. They do not want to increase in sins. These people are serious about where they want to spend their eternity. Spending time with people who has diseases in the heart can be very contagious. And it does have an effect on our lives. That is why it is so important to help oneself, to only attend events , where these matters shouldn`t be any issue. There is a reason why Allah has said, that the majority of people in hell-fire will be women. One of the reason is the sins of the tongue. We who have been raised in this community, knows how fast any information travels, before the entire community is talking about it. In other words. We aren`t doing enough when it comes to increasing the healthy-ness of our spiritual heart. How can we explain how fast the whole community knows something, if we muslims in the community weren`t backbiters? If we were obeying Allah and protecting ourself from the sins of the tongue, the info would have died a permanent death, with the first who heard it. Instead the reality is that everyone knows it, within in day.

An Act Of Worship With Highest Reward And Acceptance

If and when we are able to correct our niyah, ikhlas, quality of deed, our deeds will be rewarded and accepted with the highest rewards. No matter how little the deed is. Our intention will be to do every deed for the sake of Allah. I will please my spouse for the sake of Allah. I will fulfil my duties towards my children for the sake of Allah. I will work with integrity at my school and work, for the sake of Allah. I will be good to neighbours, to strangers, to kin for the sake of Allah. I will be good to animals for the sake of Allah. I will help the community for the sake of Allah. When we are able to have these kinds of intentions, Allah isn`t stingy in rewarding us. Allah, has made us because he wants us to come back to Him in a good obedient way. When we are doing good deeds with right intentions and ikhlas, the same right intention and ikhlas will protect us from doing bad deeds. I am not going to lie, because Allah dislikes dishonesty. I am not going to backbite, because Allah dislikes eating your own brothers flesh. I am not going to be selfish and only think about myself. I am not going to slander other people. I am not going to help a marriage break. I am not going to only think about my rights, but I will balance that with also thinking about my duties. If and when we are able to correct ourselves by helping our spirituality to grow, every deed of our conduct, will become an act of worship. Because the intention and sincerity is correct. We aren`t only in the state of ibadah when we are in salah, but also when we are good to our spouse, take care of our children, fulfil our duties for the sake of pleasing Allah. Even that day our spouse is angry at us, we dig in our goodwill, to be good to him / her. I know how difficult fitnah is for a man when he steps out of the house, I will make sure I please my husband sufficiently every day. I know my wife, has had a tough day, I will make dinner for her today. Our parents get angry at us because of their old age, trying to practice sabr with them. My teen is giving my a hard time, maybe he /she is need of more positive attention. When we feed our spiritual heart with Allah`s remembrance our goodwill increases, and we are able to do more for Allah`s Creation. We want to please Allah, to gain Allahs love and because we want to thank Him. Allah has said, You have not thanked me, if you haven`t thanked people. So when we are grateful to others, because we have so many matters we have been helped, we are thanking Allah. And Allah will love us more. And a true alive spiritual heart, wants Allah`s love. When we do good deeds to please Allah and thank Him, He loves us and make the good righteous, also love us. There is no better validation of being a good person, than that the Creator of everything in this Universe, is saying, that He loves you. Ya Allah, make us of those You love. Ya Allah make us of those Hazoor Paak pbuh loves. Ya Allah make us of those, hadrat Jibreel alayhisalam loves. Aamen. Ya Allah, grant us to win the struggle of purifying our hearts from the diseases it has, with tawbah and repentance and shining it up with dhikr of You, every day. Aamen. Ya Allah grant us to win the struggle of correcting our niyah, ikhlas and quality of every deed, so every deed of our conduct is filled with sunnah and becomes an act of worship, which You, Allah accept with the highest rewards and acceptance. Aamen. Grant this to me, my family, my friends, and all ummati, till the end of time. Grant us to win the struggle of perfecting the quality of the purity of our heart, of our soul, of our deeds, of our speech, of our thoughts, of our conduct all the time. Aamen summa aamen.

an islamic school yes or noThe youth need education. Not only education about the dunya but also about the hereafter. In many countries we muslims have migrated to, there isn`t any islamic school for children. Norway is such a country. Here we have Mosques where children learn arabic, but none muslim schools.

There are many advantages of having a school for only muslims. For instance, there will be segregation between the genders, and the food will be halal, the education will be seen from an Islamic perspective, the children will have friends that are muslims, they will read salah and learn arabic from the start. Just think about the impact this will have on the child. Getting in everything muslimized from the start. MashaAllah. I salute those people abroad, for instance in Britain where they have such alternatives for children. MashaAllah they are really lucky for having such an opportunity to give their children the proper Islamic education. I wish we had such alternatives here in Norway as well.

On the other side there could be some disadvantages if one has such schools. One of them would be that the children would talk their own mother tongue at school, so they won`t learn how to talk norwegian properly, from the pronunciation to the writing. My guess is that most of the kids will be from different muslim countries, and only a few native Norwegians, if any. So in a way they will get segregated from the Norwegians. Another thing is that later in life, when these people will become adults and will go searching for the right job, people whom are racist could try to put aside those people whom are apparently muslims and say that we don`t know if the children have gotten proper education at that muslim school. Though this is happening even know when we don`t have any school like this, people whom have an islamic name are singled out from the joblist, just because their muslims.

I guess eventually people would understand how resourceful we muslims are and muslim will be given jobs more easily, in sha Allah. I guess those racist people are getting old and will soon retire from their jobs. Young people nowadays have grown up in a multicultural society, so they know that muslims can and are doing a great job where they are hired. I guess as the muslims are proving themselves by taking higher education and with better jobs, as well as being an active part in building up Islam in their neighbourhood, i guess people will soon see them as a diamond instead of a stone, in sha Allah. To make this happen, WE muslim living in Norway, or any other country in the west, has a big responsibility to portray the right character from our conduct, the kind of character and dealing our Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) had in his business dealings. If we are far away from that conduct, we need to realize that our children or next generations are the ones that will reap what we sow. If we really care for them, we would do our best that our integrity as a muslim is on the highest level, as it should be in all our matters, in sha Allah. If not we need to look inside ourselves and see where our road is taking us, to hell or jannah?

As the muslims are increasing in number worldwide, mostly because of the converts/reverts and also the birthrate, we need to see such alternative school as a future for our next generation. Living in a society that is so un-islamic it is very important that we are able to take care of our good values in Islam. So that our next generation are protected from taking the wrong road. I guess the question isn`t if or not, the question is more about when and how. I believe there are a lot of people thinking about this, as they are becoming a family. We need a society where our values could rub off on Norwegians. So we need to show them the conduct that can motivate them to accept Islam. On the other hand we ough this to the next generation that is growing up now or in the future. If not many will be lead astray.

Learning Islam from an early age, and having friends that practice your deen from the start, can make a big difference in a child`s life. The difference of how serious those children will be in becoming a mohsin, the highest degree of a muslim in Islam. We want our kids to have this opportunity. If you are the one that is thinking of this future, do your best to talk with the right people and make it happen, in sha Allah. I guess from thought to action all we need is one person that takes his/her dreams seriously and is also putting them to action. In sha Allah there won`t be so long till we have such a wonderful place where the next generation of muslims in Norway will have a healthy environment to build their spiritual life as well as their worldly life.

The schools in Norway, where they teach lots un-islamic things, children aren`t segregated and have to have gym with both the genders together. Not to talk about the fact that children learn everything from an christen perspective instead of the islamic perspective. The food is not halal, and neither is the gender mixing halal. We need to give our children the proper way of thinking “Islam” from the start, that they don`t get from other schools before they are way past thirty years. And then they are too indulged in their family that they don`t have enough time to learn about Islam.

The person whom has such an idea and will put in to conduct just think about the amount of sadqa jariah, charity and bounties of sawabh that person will reap from it in the hereafter, in sha Allah. And all the children lives, that will be changed for the better. It`s no end to see that this is something that could be your door-opener to jannah. If you have the ability don`t let this chance go by. Do something, talk with people, one idea put to action can change mountains, all one need is a confident thought. In sha Allah. I pray that our next generations will get the proper understanding of Islam from an early age that they could live their lives according to it as well, to protect them from the ills of the society we are living in Norway. Ameen summa ameen.

Remember that even if this doesn`t apply to you yet because you don`t have any children, some day you would regret you thought like that. If you don`t see the children of this Ummah as your children, one day could come when your children would not get the proper guidance because others don`t see them as their responsibility. It is important that we unite and look at each others with one goal, to do give each other motivation to do better in this world and the hereafter, for us, for our family`s, for the next generations and for the potential muslims out there.

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 (“,)

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..

Quote of the moment :)

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..
InshaAllah
Ameen summa ameen
