How To Deal With Spiritual Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder – Ustad Asim Khan

We remind ourselves that Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala, He wants ease for us and He does not want difficulty. Allah says in the Quran in Surah al-baqarah verse number 185: Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship.

So don’t perceive Allah as a God who demands, you know a level of perfection from you because Perfection is beyond human endeavor.

Allah is generous. Allah (swt) is forgiving. do not place a burden on yourself that Allah has not placed upon you and moreover do not let Shaitan come between you and Allah (Swt).

Cleanliness is half of faith but at the same time Islam is against obsessiveness and extremism

“I Want Good For You” The Pain Of The Parents And Vice Versa – Shaykh Omar Suleiman

You will one day come to know what I have said to you.

==================================

Allah (swt) guides whom he Wills. You don’t guide whom you loved and so you do your best but you disconnect yourself, you take responsibility, but at the same time you acknowledge your lack of control over the situation. you, leave that to God…

This person is being spoken to by their parents and saying look I want good for you. You’re going to remember this one day; I’m trying to guide you to a good path.

You’re trying to help someone and the case once your own children who you would do anything for them and they’re on a path of hurting themselves, harming themselves and you’re trying to tell them look it’s for your own good. I want you to think about the consequences of your actions.

When someone can’t hear your advice just let them know that you’re going to love them through their stubbornness.  I love you, and I’m going to pray for you and I’m here for you. The door is open.

I’m telling you something that hopefully will one day come back to you.

What will make your advice ugly is when you have ego in it, when it’s condescending, when it doesn’t,… maybe somewhere in there is some Noble intention but in the midst.. of your Noble intention is being lost. The ugliness of your words, right….

For both of these people; both the Giving that sincere advice and the one listening to that sincere advice, right the ego has to be removed from the picture and you’ve got to consider whether if you’re giving advice to someone, sincere advice to someone out of the love of Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala and out of wanting good for them.

Reflect Over The Beauty Of Surah An-Nasr To Enter The Fold Of Islam Firmly~ Ustad Asim Khan

Allah subhanaw Taala sends His help; no doubt, be convinced, but on His terms and on the timeline that He sees is appropriate and befitting and that timeline may be immediate, it may be tomorrow, it may Maybe in the distant future.

Always maintain conviction in your heart that Allah will help you. If you are faithful, if you are devoted to Allah then for sure His victory and His help will arrive but that will come at a time that Allah chooses not when you choose.

It teaches us that our desire and our wish for Humanity are not to conquer them. But rather to call them and to invite them and to see them join us in the worship of Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala and not to die on disbelief and to end up in the hellfire….

We must adopt that lifestyle where we say Islam is not just for me and my family but it is for everyone and I will call everyone up to my ability and up to my potential.

Bismillah Hir Rahman Nir Raheem
In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious and The Most Merciful

إِذَا جَاءَ نَصْرُ اللَّهِ وَالْفَتْحُ

Iza jaaa’a nasrul-laahi walfath
1. When the victory of Allah has come and the conquest,

وَرَأَيْتَ النَّاسَ يَدْخُلُونَ فِي دِينِ اللَّهِ أَفْوَاجًا

Wa ra-aitan naasa yadkhuloona fee deenil laahi afwajaa
2. And you see the people entering into the religion of Allah in multitudes,

فَسَبِّحْ بِحَمْدِ رَبِّكَ وَاسْتَغْفِرْهُ ۚ إِنَّهُ كَانَ تَوَّابًا

Fasabbih bihamdi rabbika wastaghfirh, innahoo kaana tawwaaba

Desperate Help Of Allah’s Mercy With Powerful Dhikr From Depression | Mufti Menk

We will go through sadness, anxiety and so much more in terms of difficulty hardship. The days will not be the same. We are just human beings….

Allah has Never Promised You material things but He has promised to contentment and happiness.

Some of the happiest people have very little when it comes to material belongings, but they have the ownership of something that is very great. That is the relationship with Allah and Allah is the owner of the heart. Allah will give it calmness.

Many people follow the trends of this world, and these Trends are sometimes leading to anxiety, trends of the world to expose ourselves…..

We need to live up to a standard of someone else and we cannot do that so we become depressed.

Trends of the world to show off what you have, when you show off what you have you will never have as much as others. So you will be led to depression and anxiety and stress and so much more.

Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala says if you want to compete with someone compete with them in good deeds, in helping others in being the best person in your Character your conduct and so on.

Allah liberates you from the clutches from the enslavement of materialistic competition. Allah truly liberates you by saying be excited with what we’ve given you, be happy with the condition we have kept you in.

Don’t compare yourself with those who have more materially, your heart will be absolutely content. subhanallah wa bihamdihi subhanallahil adzim

Anas ibn Maalik (may Allah be pleased with him) said, that the messenger of Allah (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) used to profusely say:

يَا مُقَلِّبَ الْقُلُوبِ ثَبِّتْ قَلْبِي عَلَى دِينِكَ

yaa mu-qallibal quloob thab-bit qalbee ‘alaa deenik
“O turner of hearts, keep my heart firm upon Your religion.”

We all want Paradise, but when we get there on the Day of Judgment will the prophet peace be upon him recognize us?  That’s a question; I want you to ask yourselves.

يَا حَيُّ يَا قَـيُّومُ
بِرَحْمَتِكَ أَسْتَغِيثُ
أَصْلِحْ لِي شَأْنِي كُلَّهُ
وَلَا تَكِلْنِي إِلَى نَفْسِي طَرْفَةَ عَيْنٍ

Yaa Hayyu yaa Qayyoomu
(O Ever Living, O Ever Sustaining)
bi rahmatika astagheeth
(in Your mercy I seek relief)
aslih lee sha’nee kullahu
(rectify for me all of my affairs)
wa laa takilnee ilaa nafsee tarfata ‛ayn
(and do not leave me to myself even for the blink of an eye).
[Al-Haakim No# 2000 and he graded it authentic]

Who Used To Control Over The Jinn World And The Knowledge Of Unseen By Jinn | Shaykh Hasan Ali

The word jinn in Arabic comes from a root word jim noon nun (jann) which means something that is hidden.

Allah has given us as a set rule is that we both going to exist in this world, coexist in this world, but they’re going to be able to see us and themselves, but we don’t see them. now the jinn, though They see us They don’t see the angels.

The Angelic world has been created from light. The jinns have been created from fire. Our Essence comes from clay, from water and from other elements.

King Solomon/ prophet Suleiman (A.S) was given the power over jinns. He was the only human being that had the authority given by Allah to control jinns.

jinns don’t know the Unseen World. and if jinn is telling you about the Unseen World then he’s giving you stories

 

The Blessing Of Staying Away From Haram Income And Relationship~Mufti Menk

In verse number 94 (surah-Al-Ma’idah), Allah loves it when we stay away from things for His sake.

 

Only to test you Allah allows certain things He has prohibited to be accessible to you and He makes it easy for you to do achieve that but you stay away for His sake.

When a person is married for the sake of their spouse. They would sometimes stay away from adultery Etc. But if you were to do it for the sake of Allah, it is far broader and you will achieve the happiness of your spouse too subhanallah….

Even if the person comes to you and really asks you to commit the sin with them, if you were to abstain bearing Allah in mind, aren’t you on a Higher level? You achieve the Comfort.

When adultery is very easy to commit and you still stay away from it. You’ve arrived at a different level in your relationship with Allah.

When things are prohibited, sometimes Allah might test you by making it accessible; it is so tempting to earn money in the wrong way. Allah says, do you prefer me or you prefer the money that is earned in a wrong..

Why? SubhanAllah, it’s up to you to prove yourself to Allah.

So those who stay away they have the correct relationship with Allah.

Duas Whilst Being Nearest To Allah To Get What You Want At The Blessed Times | Mufti Menk

The most important acts of worship but within the Salah there is a certain position that is by far the loftiest, the most loved by Allah, the highest position considered; the position wherein which the son of Adam meaning humankind would be the closest to his Lord, SubhanAllah,  the closest that a worshiper could be to his rabb, to his Lord: of sujood/ Prostration.

Sujood /prostration is solely for Allah only and solely for Allah that is one act of worship that he has given us as a gift and in the Sharia that we follow the set of rules and laws that, we follow given to us by Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala through Muhammad sallallahu Alayhi wasallam, we were taught that it’s absolutely disallowed.

Dua in sujood/ prostration

Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu’minin: The Apostle of Allah (saw) prostrated himself at night when reciting the Qur’an. He said repeatedly: My face prostrates itself to Him Who created it and brought forth its hearing and seeing by His might and power.

سَجَدَ وَجْهِي لِلَّذِي خَلَقَهُ وَشَقَّ سَمْعَهُ وَبَصَرَهُ بِحَوْلِهِ وَقُوَّتِهِ ‏”

sajad wajhi liladhi khalaqah washaqa sameah wabasarah bihawlih waquatih

Surah Al-Mu’minun [23:14] –

فَتَبَارَكَ اللَّهُ أَحْسَنُ الْخَالِقِينَ

Fa tabarakallhu ahsan al-Khaliqin.”

So blessed is Allah, the best of creators.

We’re not allowed to engage in prostration except for Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala. no matter what the reason is, even if it is cultural. It still is prohibited to prostrate in the same way. You would be prostrating in sujood for anyone or anything else.

Take your time in prostration. I humble myself for Allah. Allah will raise me.

whenever you are sad, whenever you’re feeling anxious, whenever you don’t know, what’s about to happen, Whenever there is uncertainty in your life. Whenever people are trying to harm you; one of the best ways of benefiting yourself is to pray two units of prayer and to prolong your sujood.

so the prostration will help you overcome that hurt, that sadness that anxiety, those negative feelings. What will help you? Prostration will help you.

Firstly when the dajjal comes we will be tested in four ways. He will try to take our religion away from us. So that is the test of religion.

And dajjal refers to two things one is what we know is ad-dajjal /”deceiver” but then there is what is known as the fitna of dajjal.

Anything, anything at any time that is connected to any one of the tests that we have been taught that dajjal will bring forth is also part and parcel of his force.

So anyone trying to take your religion away from you is a dajjal.

They want to take their religion away from people. We all need to cling, cling to the deen. Allah says in the Quran; hold fast upon the Rope of Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala. don’t be Disunited….
