What effects me will eventually effect you and future Donald Trump

Donald Trump likes to paint all people with same paint brush with same color ie Mexicans, Blacks, Asiabs, & Muslims. 

He believes we are all “same” and he is superior. Let me tell you today you have children and grandchildren. The future is unknown but let me share a small story with you:

A mouse looked through the crack in the wall to see the farmer and his wife open a package.

What food might this contain?” The mouse wondered – he was devastated to discover it was a mousetrap.

Retreating to the farmyard, the mouse proclaimed the warning: There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!”

The chicken clucked and scratched, raised her head and said, “Mr.Mouse, I can tell this is a grave concern to you, but it is of no consequence to me. I cannot be bothered by it.”

The mouse turned to the goat and told him, “There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!”

The goat sympathized, but said, “I am so very sorry, Mr.Mouse, but there is nothing I can do about it but pray. Be assured you are in my prayers.” 

The mouse turned to the cow and said “There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!”

The cow said, “Wow, Mr. Mouse. I’m sorry for you, but it’s no skin off my nose.”

So, the mouse returned to the house, head down and dejected, to face the farmer’s mousetrap alone.

That very night a sound was heard throughout the house – like the sound of a mousetrap catching its prey.

The farmer’s wife rushed to see what was caught. In the darkness, she did not see it was a venomous snake whose tail the trap had caught.

The snake bit the farmer’s wife. The farmer rushed her to the hospital , and she returned home with a fever.

Everyone knows you treat a fever with fresh chicken soup, so the farmer took his hatchet to the farmyard for the soup’s main Ingredient.

But his wife’s sickness continued, so friends and neighbours came to sit with her around the clock.

To feed them, the farmer butchered the goat.

The farmer’s wife did not get well; she died.

So many people came for her funeral, the farmer had the cow slaughtered to provide enough meat for all of them.

The mouse looked upon it all from his crack in the wall with great sadness.

So, the next time you hear someone is facing a problem and think it doesn’t concern you, remember when one of us is threatened, we are all at risk.

We are all involved in this amazing journey called life. We must keep an eye out for one another and make an extra effort to encourage one another.

Each of us may not be connected through a blood line, we may not even be friends. But we are all connected through humanity

  

Sunnah – Dua 

I came across this beautiful Dua, Muhammad (SAW) taught us, human beings. I try to pray, but not as much as I would like to. Regardless may Allah (SWT) help us all, guide us to Jannah, and make our lives in this world easier for the next. Aameen. 

Feel free to share this Dua with family and friends

Peace and Unity, if Not Equality, in 21st Century

Assalam’alaikum (Peace Be Upon You),

We are sick, tired, and depressed seeing all the fights, abuse, and discrimination that is currently on going. It seems it is giving many people FREE “abuse card” to behave any way they like. That is plain stupid and pathetic.

Whether one is a Muslim, Christian, Jew, or follows no religion, we all have one common goal, “Peace,” Let us all stand united regardless of color, faith, belief, gender, and etc, and say NO to war and hate.

Please let us stop the hate, but come together with kindness and unity for better and prosperous future!

Misconception of 2nd Islamic Month – Safar

All praises to Allah (Subhanaho wa Ta’ala) and choiciest blessings upon our beloved Prophet Muhammud (SallAllahu alayhi wasallam)   
Alhamdulillah, today we have entered the second month of the lunar calendar. 

 Safar with a “Saad” either means ”To turn yellow’ or ‘To be empty/vacant’. 

It was in Autumn when the leaves turn yellow or the homes of the Arabs were empty of their menfolk, that this month was named Safar. 

 This month is also known as, Safarul Muzaffar or Safarul Khayr, which means, prosperous, successful, good fortune etc. This is to eradicate the corrupt beliefs of some people who say, the month of Safar is bad-luck, evil, ill-omened, unfortunate etc., so marriages, major transactions etc. must not be conducted in this month. 

Rasulullah (SallAllahu alayhi wasallam) eradicated all superstitious beliefs.

 Time, day, week, month, year is an estimation and effected by the Will of Allah.

If anyone does good at anytime, he will be rewarded accordingly and the effects of evil and sins will be decided by Allah. 

There are many periods of the lunar calendar and many places in the world where the rewards of good deeds are multiplied and has an adverse result withh sins. 

Our intellect and understanding is limited, therefore we seek divine guidance from the Glorious Quran and Ahaadees of Rasulullah (SallAllahu alayhi wasallam) 

Senior scholars have explained many things to us, in accordance to the Sharee’ah, which we must accept and adhere to, if we desire success in both worlds. 

There is a host of corrupt beliefs regarding this month. True and sincere Muslims should refrain from them and engage in beneficial deeds. In reality, no time or individual is evil originally. 

All the customs and beliefs of Safar are baseless. Many people have erroneous beliefs regarding this month i.e. it is a month of misfortune and calamities.

The teachings of Allah Ta’ala and His Most Beloved Rasul (SalAllahu Alaihi waSalam) gives us clear guidelines on such incorrect beliefs. 

Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta’ala) says in the Qur’an al-Kareem: “No misfortune befalls except by Allah’s command. ..” [Surah Tagabun, Verse 11] These erroneous beliefs have also been condemned in the context of the following Ahadith: There is no superstitious owl, bird, no star-promising rain, no bad omen in the month of Safar. [Sahih Bukhari, Hadith 5707]

 There is no bad omen in the month of Safar and no Ghouls (evil spirits). [Sahih Muslim, Hadith 2222]

 The above Ahadith clearly refutes all incorrect beliefs and superstitions regarding the month of Safar

These incorrect beliefs flow from the pre-Islamic period of Jahiliyyah

The Month of Safar during the Days of Ignorance

 The Muhaddithin have recorded many of the superstitions harboured by the Arabs during the Days of Ignorance

A few are mentioned below: 

1) The pre-Islamic Arabs believed Safar to be a snake which lives in the stomach of a human being and when hungry, bites the person. This is the discomfort one experiences when gripped by the pangs of hunger

2) Some said Safar are worms which originate in the liver and ribs due to which the colour of the person becomes yellow, a condition we know today as jaundice

3) According to some, the month of Safar flanked by Muharram and Rabi al Awwal is full of calamities and misfortune
 With the advent of Islam and the teachings of Sayyadina Rasulullah (SalAllahu Alaihi waSalam), all evil and incorrect beliefs common in pre-Islamic times were discarded

Incorrect Beliefs: Today too, there are some Muslims who hold incorrect beliefs regarding the month of Safar

 1. A nikah performed in this month would not be successful

 2. This month is full of misfortune and calamities

 3. To commence any important venture, business etc. during this month will bring bad luck

 4. The first to the thirteenth of Safar is ill-fortune and evil

 5. The person who distributes food or money on the 13th of Safar will be saved from its ill-fortune

 6. To celebrate the last Wednesday of Safar and regard it as a holiday

What to do:

 1. To shun all types of erroneous beliefs regarding the blessed month of Safar

 2. To understand that the most unfortunate person is he who disobeys Allah Ta’ala’s commandments e.g. does not perform the five daily salah etc. It is narrated in a hadith that Rasulullah (SalAllaho Alaihi waSalam) said: “Pray, 0 Allah! Cause not anyone of us to be a wretched destitute.” He then asked: “Do you know who is a wretched destitute?” Upon the request of the Sahabah (RadiAllahu Ta’ala Anhum) he replied, “A wretched destitute is he who neglects his salaat.”

3. We should understand that all conditions which befalls us, good or bad, favourable, or unfavourable are from Allah Ta’ala, (as a result of our actions)

 Allah Ta’ala says: ”Whatever misfortune befalls you, it is due to the things your hands have wrought, and He forgives many a sin.” (Surah 42 – Verse 30)

 This can also be confirmed by the following Hadith: Sayyadina Jabir (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu) has said that, “I have heard Sayyadina Rasulullah (SalAllahu Alaihi waSalam) saying, the descending of illness and evil superstition befalling in the month of Safar is untrue.”

Rare Gem – Easy way to Jannat

Assalam’Alaikum

Today as I was going through my facebook page I came across this picture(s)  

 
I was in awe and hurt. I was awe with this picture(s) as it tells/illustrates more than 1,000 words can describe. On the other hand I felt hurt because people are clueless and quick to judge. 

Let me explain. This image is of a married couple who is enjoying and celebrating Eid (2015). The husband is taking his different able bodied wife around. It is Masha’Allah beautiful and amazing Subhana’Allah. 

I would like to say to the woman in this image, Allah (SWT) has gifted you with a one of a gem. Your husband is a gift and a dua from Allah (SWT). May Allah (SWT) continues to bless you two with happiness in this life and Hereafter. Aameen. 

I would like to say to her husband, yes you are indeed a gem that Allah (SWT) has blessed your wife with, but please never forget that your wife is equal a dua and a gift directly from Allah (SWT). This body that we have is temporary, today it’s there and tomorrow it’s between the earth, but the soul never changes. Always treat her with happiness and never make her feel any less, because truthfully she isn’t any less than anyone in this world, but Allah (SWT) has made her special, so indeed she is special. Today you bring her a smile, In Sha’Allah tomorrow in Jannat she will be your card to Jannat. 

May Allah (SWT) bless you both all the happiness in this world and Hereafter. Aameen. Have a blessed Eid 

For people who judge, please remember that job is ONLY for Allah (SWT), not us humans. He is the best of Knowledger and Witnesses anything/everything. May Allah (SWT) save us from judging someone else before looking at ourselves. Aameen.
