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!

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). 

  

Help One Another – Ummah

Assalam’Alaikum ( السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته)

I thought of posting the Hadith of Prophet Muhammed (SAW) (صلى الله عليه وسلم‎ ) that was forwarded to me by a relative, on this blog tomorrow. Then I thought about it, no one is promised next day and what if I die? 

So here is it a sweet reminder to me, first, please keep this on your mind as well. 

  
May Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) help us be His best servants in manners, deeds, and role models in our deen.  Aameen. 

Depression – No Hope

Assalam’Alaikum ( السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته)

We all go through many ups, downs, and challenges on daily basis. Sometime it becomes too much that we become extremely depressed and stressed out, speaking from personal experience, and it’s always hard to keep going. 

Did you know many teens and young adults give up so easily that they becomes suicidal? 

A believer always have to remember whatever situation he/she is in is because Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) knows you can handle the test and challenges. 

Always remember that Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) is looking out for you and know that He has chosen you for that test. 

Don’t give up, maybe not for yourself, but for Him, continue to keep going and put your trust in Him. 

  
May Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) gives us sabr (patience), and protects us from any and all hardships. Aameen. 

Prayers for Nepal

Brothers and Sisters in Islam, please keep Nepal in your prayers and duas.

Friend or Enemy of Islam 

Assalam’Alaikum ( السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته) 

I came across this image and I thought I’d share with you. It is scary because it is about each of us (some more than others) and what are we going to say to Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى)? How are we going to face Him? 

  
May Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) save us and give us proper knowledge and Hidaya that we can be excellent slaves of His. Aameen. 

Month of Rajab

Assalam’Alaikum ( السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته) 

I love Muhammed (SAW) (صلى الله عليه وسلم‎ ), so I would like to share anything and everything I could about him. 

If I come across something like a Hadiths, sayings, & etc I will In Sha’Allah ( إن شاء الله) try to share with you. 

Did you know Muhammed (SAW) (صلى الله عليه وسلم‎ ) said many Duas for different seasons, time, people, circumstances, and etc. I had never realized the treasure of duas he, Muhammed (SAW) (صلى الله عليه وسلم‎ ), left behind him for us, his Ummah. 

So let us take that treasure and bring close to our heart by making it part of our lives In Sha’Allah ( إن شاء الله)! 

Best part about this blog is that I know I am not the only one learning, we all are struggling daily but with each other’s help and duas, In Sha’Allah ( إن شاء الله) we can make little changes In Sha’Allah ( إن شاء الله), for the sake of Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) and May he grant us patience and Barakat Aameen. 

Here is the dua for Rajab

  
May Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) bless us and may we benefit in this life and hereafter. Aameen

Assalam’Alaikum ( السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته)

Respect & Kindness — The Key to Success

We have come to a time, where many people don’t know or feel to be kind or respectful towards other human beings. No matter what our beliefs, religion, education, class, status, gender, wealth, and etc is, we still have a responsibility to be kind and respectful to another human being.

Sitting  behind a computer doesn’t change anything, we still have to be kind and respectful to each other. You may not agree to someone’s opinion, perspective, dress, and etc, yet you are still responsible as a human being to be kind and respectful

“There is a reward for kindness in every living thing”– Prophet Muhammad (SAW)

Part 1 — FAQ’s Are Socks required for Hijab

Question:

Are socks required when one wears hijab? Isn’t that debatable? 

Answer:

Yes indeed it seems that wearing of socks is debatable. Different Islamic scholars & different Islamic school of thoughts (hanafis, hanbalis, malakis, & shafai’is) have interpreted Hadiths bit differently even though they all belong to the branch of Sunni. 

Before providing an answer, please understand the reason of doing hijab. 

When a Muslimah dons a hijab, she does it just for Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى). That intention has to be there, otherwise the hijab itself is no use. 

With that being said, try to be sincere to yourself and do justice. Whichever school of thoughts you follow, remember Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) is always watching over you and He knows your intention. 

If you believe that socks or light tights need to be worn when you do hijab, I say go for it. I believe whatever we do for the sake of Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى), He knows and He will In Sha’Allah ( إن شاء الله) make it easier for us. 

With or without socks, our intentions shouldn’t change and neither should we flaunt any aspects of ourselves or feel superior over anyone. Hijab is not for show, but for our own self! 

On the side note, I have realized it’s easier to wear socks when doing hijab, especially during winter and falls. In summer and spring, I usually wear light tights or stockings. It flows with the outfits! 

If it is difficult for you to wear socks, remember each difficulty faced for Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) in this world, is huge rewards In Sha’Allah ( إن شاء الله) in Hereafter. Aameen.
