Islam welcomes you

Assalam’Alaikum ( السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته)

Islam is the only religion, that doesn’t differentiate between race, status, gender, wealth, birth, country, & etc, Alhumdulillah ( الحمد لله). 

One can be anyone or no one, but that individual is something to Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى). That person is loved by Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) no matter what. That individual can be out casted by society or group, but not by Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) 

Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) is most Merciful and Beneficial to each of His creations no matter what time, place, or person. Alhumdulillah ( الحمد لله) 

  

Dua of Desperation 

Assalam’Alaikum ( السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته)

Many times we go through such hard times, that we become desperate and do or say irrational things and behave irresponsible. 

Let us first and foremost remember that in these cases Satan is in its highest peak. Best way to retaliate Satan is to remember Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) 

  
Aameen. 

Never lose hope in Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى), even though many times it’s easy to give up, but please let us all have some sabr (patience). 

May Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) gives us sabr and fulfill our duas. Aameen

Variety of Dates available Dearborn Michigan, USA

Assalam’Alaikum ( السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته)

Sometime ago I had one of our reader asked me a question on dates, which I was able to answer Alhumdulillah ( الحمد لله). 

I don’t know where that reader resides, but last week Alhumdulillah ( الحمد لله) I had a chance to travel to the state of Toronto, Canada and Michigan, USA and had stopped at a Middle Eastern Grocery store in Dearborn, Michigan. There were Masha’Allah ( ماشاء الله) so many varieties of dates Subhana’Allah ( سبحان الله)!

Subhana’Allah ( سبحان الله) what a beautiful sight! Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) has made such beautiful world for us Alhumdulillah ( الحمد لله)  

 

Al-Mutakabbir

Assalam’Alaikum ( السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته) 

Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) is the Greatest. He has many names and known by different names in various languages. 

In Qur’an, His beautiful names and attributes are listed in Qur’an, with his 99 most Perfect names. 

One of His name is Al-Mutakkabir  

In Pain

Assalam’Alaikum ( السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته)

Remember brothers and sisters in Islam, that pain is also a gift from Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى). 

As they say no pain no gain, that saying couldn’t be more true in Islam. Whatever pain we go through in this life with sabr (patience) Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) cleans our sins and rewards us in Hereafter. 

Always remember our goal is not this life, but Jannah in Hereafter. Keep smiling and remember Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى). 

  

How to deal with Riya and showoff in Islam? Part 1

Bismillah e rahmani raheem (In the name of Allah (swt) {God}, Most Gracious, Most Merciful)
Bismillah e rahmani raheem (In the name of Allah (swt) {God}, Most Gracious, Most Merciful)+

Assalam alaikum,

I got a question from one of our readers, while I did some research, I was surprised by such vast of information on this topic, which was very interesting. Before I go ahead, I would deeply like to thank that reader for this question, because of you, I got a chance to learn and teach to many other people In Sha’Allah.

Question: How to deal with Riya and showoff in Islam?

Since this is huge topic, I would like to discuss in depth and into parts.

Part 1: Riya

What is riya? Riya has many levels in Islam, but the broad definition could be considered as arrogance. Riya can come in many forms such as in our hearts, minds, verbal aspects, and actions.

Let us explore these aspects:

Hearts: When we win or do something and get praised, we often forget Allah (swt) helped us, and we believe that we achieved by ourselves. We not only forget our Creator, without His help we cannot achieve anything, but we also discredit our family members and our loved ones and leave them behind. We take all the credit and fame.

Minds: We tend to believe in ourselves after we achieve something. That’s “I tried” or “I did”, it becomes all about me, instead of Allah (swt). When we lose something or something goes bad, we say or blame Allah (swt) or family/friends, but never oneself.

Verbal Aspects: We start comparing ourselves to other people, especially people in Islamic history such as Caliphs, Sahabahs, Prophet (saw)’s wives, and Prophet (saw), and etc.

We should never compare ourselves with anyone, especially anyone from Prophet’s time or to Himself. Allah (swt) is the best in Knowledge, let Him be the judge. We can strive to be like them, but we can never be them or compare ourselves with them.

Actions: When hearts and minds become one thought, then automatically our actions follow that train of thought.

Can I talk to Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) in my language or does it have to be in Arabic

Assalam’Alaikum ( السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته)

Many Muslims and reverts, who cannot read or write Arabic, are really concern how to talk to Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى). 

Brothers and Sisters, this world and everything in between belongs to Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى). He is so merciful that He knows all languages and forgives us for our limitations. 

Arabic is the language, which is loved by Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى), since Qur’an is written in that language, yet He knows, understands, and listens to all of us in any and all languages. After all we should never forget, He has gifted us with speech, language, hearing, and etc. 

Always pray to Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) and repent. May Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) forgives us and purify our hearts. Aameen

  

Effects of Good Deeds in Islam

Assalam’Alaikum ( السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته)

In today’s time, we constantly want recognition for our good actions, (I am saying this because I am like that) but after learning more about our beautiful deen Islam, I have learn to control the aspect of recognition. 

I don’t want to be recognized in this world by people, but I pray that Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) recognizes me and provides His Shade to me in Hereafter. Aameen. 

I pray same for our brothers and sisters in Ummah, who does good deeds only for the sake of Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى).  Aameen.
