Whoever

For those who are not able to do Hajj this year, reflect on the beautiful words of Imām Rajab al-Hanbali رحمه الله who said:

“Whoever is not able to stop at Arafah, then stop at the limits Allaah has set.

Whoever is not able to spend the night at muzdalifah, let him spend the night in obedience to Allaah to come close and attain nearness to Him.

Whoever is not able to slaughter at Mina, then let him slaughter his desires so by it he can reach his objective.

Whoever was not able to reach the house because it is far, then proceed towards the Lord of the Ka’bah, for He is closer to him than his jugular vein.”

● [Lataa’if al-Ma’aarij, p.g. 6]

Once a Doctor was travelling by train from Bangaluru to Trivandrum!

When the train started, He was traveling alone in the AC-I coupe.

Some time later, a Beautiful lady came and sat in the opposite berth!

Doctor was pleasantly Happy

The lady kept smiling at him…
This made him even more Happy☺

Then she went and sat next to him….
he was bubbling with Joy

She then leant towards him and whispered in his ear…

*”Hand over all your cash, cards and mobile phone to me , else I will shout loudly and tell everybody that you are harassing and misbehaving with me” *

The Doctor stared blankly at her ..

He took out a paper and a pen from his bag and wrote ” I am sorry, I can not hear or speak… Please write on this paper whatever you want to say”

The lady wrote everything what she said earlier and gave it to him!

Doctor took her note, kept it nicely in his pocket…

He got up and told her in clear tones…”

*Now shout & scream !!*

Beautiful reminder SubhaanAllaah 😊❤

A certain guy walked into a hotel and after perusing through the menu, ordered for some food.
After about 20 mins a group of guys walked in and ordered for their food too.

To the dismay of the guy, these guys got served first. He watched as they began to eat and laugh heartily. He even overheard one of them brag about how he knew everyone at that hotel and how things moved fast for him there.

He felt he was being mocked. He contemplated leaving. But he had waited soo long.
Unable to take it anymore, he called a waiter.

The waiter calmly told him: “yours sir is a special order, being prepared by the chief chef himself. Their orders were prepared hurriedly by students on attachement because the top chefs are busy with yours. That’s why they came first. Please have some juice as you wait”.

He calmed down and waited. Shortly after, his meal was served by 6 waiters.

Unknown to him, the owner of the hotel (who happened to be an old long lost friend of his) had seen him coming and wanted to surprise him and had made changes to his simple meal to make it a five star meal.
The party at the other table were shocked. They couldn’t stop staring. Suddenly they were the ones murmuring, asking why they didn’t get that kind of service and meal.
So it is with this life!!

Some people are ahead of you and eating now, laughing at you about how they know people, how they are well connected and how they’re blessed, have money and how they’re enjoying life because of it.

You have been waiting long wondering why its taking soo long to get your breakthrough, enduring mockery and humiliation. Maybe you have contemplated suicide, gone through depression or suffered severe mental anxiety.

Do not worry!!

The owner of the world has seen you. And doesn’t want to give you a simple meal like those laughing at you. You’re waiting long because yours is a special meal. It takes time to prepare. And only chief chefs prepare them.
Take heart today!!

Wait for your meal and relax. When it comes. That laughing party will be silenced for good.

Well, you have another chance!

It is not permissible for anyone

The Ruling On Young Men And Women Talking To Each Other – Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen And Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan:

Shaykh Ibn Uthaimeen [رحمه الله ] was asked:

Question:

What is the ruling on muraasalah [correspondence] between young men and women knowing that this correspondence is free from immorality, ‘ishq [passionate love], and I always begin the letters with

وَجَعَلْنَاكُمْ شُعُوبًا وَقَبَائِلَ لِتَعَارَفُوا

…and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know one another.

[Al-Hujuraat 49:13]

Answer:

It is not permissible for anyone to have correspondence with a non-mahram woman, due to the fitnah [that is] involved. The one having the conversation may think there is no fitnah [in that], but however the Shaytaan remains with him until he seduces him with her and her with him. The Prophet [salla Allaah ‘alaihi wasallam] ordered the one who hears of the Dajjaal to flee far away from him, and he said that a man may come to him as a believer but the Dajjaal will keep on at him until he makes him fall into his fitnah.

Correspondence of young men with young women involves a great deal of fitnah and danger, and it must be avoided, even if the questioner says that there is no love or desire involved. As for men corresponding with men and women with women, then there is nothing wrong in it except if it contains evil.

[Fataawa al Mar’ah al Muslimah (2/578)]

Shaykh Saalih al Fawzaan, may Allah preserve him, was asked:

Question:

What is the ruling on having conversations with young women by email and what is the ruling of it, if it is beneficial for example speaking to a woman poet [to benefit from her poetry]?

Answer:

The origin is that is not permissible if it is occurring from non mahram men for them [the women] due to what it contains of fitnah and harm, even if she is a poet because preventing harm has precedence over bringing out good. Majority of the times the ending of [these cases] are awful due to the youth having conversations with young women [by email] …”

Keep begging

Years ago, I prayed for something over and over, that I desperately wanted answered. But as time went on, I realized that not only was my request not coming true the way I asked- the exact opposite was happening.

I struggled with watching what I saw was the opposite of my duaa take place but I reminded myself that God’s decree is with wisdom and that His plan is the best. But it was hard. Really, really hard.

Eight years and many life events later, He answered my duaa.

And I realized that in order for my duaa to be answered in the best way for my life, I needed door after door to be closed for me so that my duaa could be answered in a specific time of my life- the best time, in the best way.

If I could speak to my younger self I would tell me, “Allah is AlHakim- the All Wise. Trust in His plan. Know it’s better than anything you could even dream of asking for and that every single obstacle on your path is actually another door opening to an even better outcome than you’re asking.”

But since I can’t speak to my old self, I’ll just remind myself- and if it’s helpful to you, then you as well, now:

He answers, in the best way, at the best time. Don’t give up. Keep begging. Keep doing the right thing. Keep having hope. He will never fail you. Even if it takes 8 years. Even if it’s different from what you ask.

He will always respond with what is best for you.

They get more comfortable as time goes by

You need to have realistic views of marriage. It will take time to get used to one another, to adapt to one another’s lives. It probably won’t be a bed of roses from Day One! Marriage is something you have to work at; both partners have to give and take.

Divorce is not to be used as a kind of “Panic button” the first time you have a row. Most couples do argue and it’s a part of the ups and downs of married life.

Making a marriage work takes time; it’s a bit like a pair of shoes – they get more comfortable as time goes by.

Dear sister in Islam

I don’t really understand why some women saying thank you Likers for liking their immodest pictures.

Don’t you know those numbers of men likers of you are the numbers of sin you committed in a single photo plus those other viewers plus your hundreds or thousands of friends.And what if your habit is uploading everyday? So it comes now in a large numbers of sin…recorded by the Angel on your bad Deed.

Astaghfirullah! At some point of your mind, have some thinking/ponder and reflect that what’s gonna happen to me if die in a state where all my photos are publicly shown? Will it be my entrance to Jannah or to Jahannam.

Dear Sisters in Islam, we are aiding you to keep reminding you but the whole changes has to be from yourself. Hasn’t it? May Allah (swt) guide us to His path and may He put a fear in our hearts. Ameen

What a great and righteous mother who raised this little girl!

A VERY CUTE STORY

An arts teacher said once: One day, I asked my little students in primary class to draw the imagery of Spring(season). All of them drew flowers, trees, rivers, birds etc…except one student who drew a Mus’haf (Qur’an). I asked her why she drew a Mushaf (Qur’an). Her innocent answer brought tears to my eyes…. She said: ”Qur’an is the SPRING of my heart. That’s what my mom taught me.

Don’t we say that in our Du’a: ”I pray to ALLAH to make the Qur’an the Spring of my heart, the light of my chest, the remover of my sadness and the reliever of my distress?!” 

Ma sha ALLAH! What a great and righteous mother who raised this little girl!

May ALLAH bless us with children who are the coolness of our eyes…
We should instill the amazing love of Qur’an in the hearts of our children to make them the People of The Qur’an leading them to Eternal Success. 
O my Lord! Grant unto us wives and offspring who will be the comfort of our eyes, and give us (the grace) to lead the righteous.

O ALLAH!

Make the Qur’an the Spring of my heart, the light of my chest, the remover of my sadness and the reliever of my distress.

Aameen..
