Ramadan Change Temporary? 

Assalam’Alaikum ( السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته)

  
I got this image in an email, heart touching isn’t it? 

I read this and it is true, I too am guilty of this statement. 

Please pray for me and for whole ummah in this Ramadhan that In Sha’Allah ( إن شاء الله) we change for better throughout the whole year for, not only during Ramadan. Aameen. 

Please forgive me for any errors, mistakes, and shortcomings. 

Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) and Dua 

Assalam’Alaikum ( السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته) 

Our beloved Prophet Muhammed (SAW) (صلى الله عليه وسلم‎ ) has stated the power of raising our hands and asking Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) 

  
It is easy to feel lost or hopeless many times, which is a trick of Satan, but let us always try to remember the Power of Al Rehman Al Reheem our Creator Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى). 

May Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) have Mercy on us and fulfill our duas. Aameen. 

The Power of Prayers

Assalam’Alaikum ( السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته) 

Today I would like to share a story with you, that I have gone through myself. 

During that time, now looking back, I realize I was a muslimah just by name. I wasn’t practicing the religion astagfirullah (Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) forgive me) and I wanted a situation to work out.

I prayed for the situation to workout, but in Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى)’s way, He had His Own plan and my plan didn’t work. At that time, I was so devestated and frustrated. Everything seemed close for me. 

I was thinking how come my prayers didn’t work? It says in Qur’an, Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) will fulfill our duas, I used to wonder and cry over. I felt cheated and hurt. 

Indeed in Qur’an it does say, Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) is Most Beneficial and Most Merciful. He will fulfill our duas indeed, but on His time and when He plans. 

After 10 years later, I realized how Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) have saved me from disastrous outcome. He knew  and knows the future! He didn’t ignore me, but took care of me, even though I had felt He betrayed me, but in reality He never left me, it was me, who was far away from Him. Too far to understand His Wisdom. 

I know we all go through ups and downs in life, but never lose hope/faith in Him. That rope that you hold onto for His sake, it will bring rewards In Sha’Allah ( إن شاء الله). 

  
Please remember me in your duas. May Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) fulfill our duas and give us hidaya and sabr to be on His Path. Aameen. 

May Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) forgive us dua 

Assalam’Alaikum ( السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته)

I received this short dua as a forward from a friend and wanted to share with you 

If I have stated, said, or written anything wrong or done a mistake, please forgive me. I ask forgives from each and all of you. 

May Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) makes this Ramadhan a blessing month for all of us. 

  
Aameen

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

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

  

Controller of Hearts 

Assalam’Alaikum ( السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته)

Everything happens with the will of Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) whether it be an positive action, positive news, positive outcome, or positive emotions.

He is the controller of the Universe, the world (seen and unseen, or heard and unheard). We have to realize that and our trust in Him. 

Anything bad or negatives comes from ourselves/within, Satan, and anything that befalls on us may come from within us, Satan, or Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى), inspite of all that, Remember Satan is not our friend and we are made with limited knowledge, but Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى), He, Himself wants the best of best for us. 

  
Aameen

Hijab for Both Genders-

Assalam’alaikum,

Hijab for Both Genders, is the third installation to my Hijab parts. Please see Part 1 – Dressing Hijab for Women and Part 2 – Dressing Hijab for Men

In Part 1, we focused on women and in Part 2 the focus was on men, and respectively in the manner of dressing/clothing.

In today’s time, it is extremely emphasized Hijab in the manner of dressing, yet in our Qur’an, hijab is mentioned in the aspect of manners and dressing.

In this part, I would like to explore Hijab, in the perspective of manners, modesty/moderate, and lifestyle.

A believer or a Muslim behaves accordingly to the Qur’an and Muhammad (SAW)’s Hadiths. Also there is a reason for that. We know whatever Allah (swt) has commended us is for our own benefit (in this life and Hereafter) and the benefit of the society.

 Manners: 

  • Smile –  Smiling does not only bring calmness, but also is a sadaqa
  • Self Respect – If you respect yourself, your body, your mind, and your soul, you will automatically respect elders, youngers, and children.
  • Helping Hand – Our Prophet (saw) always helped in and outside the house. He (SAW) helped friends and strangers alike
  • Be Grateful – The whole domain belongs to Allah (swt) and He knows best for you and me, so whatever and whenever you are in life, be appreciative and thankful
  • Lower your voice – this goes for both genders. We have to watch our voice level, tone, and laugh.
  • Walk – Don’t walk hard or with pride. With hard walk, earth is in pain and with pride; the society and people around us are in pain.
  • Cleanliness/Hygiene- This is extremely important, physically and emotionally for oneself and the society
  • Gaze/Tongue – Both genders equally are fully responsible for his/her words and action, whether it is done by tongue, eyes, ears, feet, hands, and etc.

Modesty/Moderate: 

  • Self Respect – Dress accordingly
  • Health/Free Time –  We all love eating, watching movies, hanging out, listening to music (I am not going to lie, cause I do too love all that), but be moderate in that, since in today’s time it is challenging, yet we have to be careful of how we use our health and time. Keep track!
  • Religion/Worldly – We all have responsibilities. Remember that we are in this world for Allah (swt), so don’t become too busy in worldly affairs, take sometime for Him. Though that doesn’t mean that we become extreme in religious beliefs, we also have been told by Allah (swt) that we should enjoy our life as long as it is halal (permitted within the laws of Islam)
  • Waste – Don’t waste food, clothes, or yourself

Lifestyle:

  • Be Knowledgeable – Spread positive knowledge
  • Secrecy/Charity – When you do good deeds, keep that within you and Allah (swt) and trust Him. Don’t share or brag. Whatever you hear, keep it to yourself or if needed share with Allah (swt) only
  • Anger – Don’t become angry or frustrated easily. Remember you are in the specific situation, because Allah (swt) is testing you. Ask Him (swt) for help

Let us become a positive role model for our children and future of Islam. May Allah (swt) make each one of us success in this life and Hereafter. Aameen.
