There are four things when Allah wants to create is one thing. He says be and it is, that’s a second thing. Then He says He owns it because He made it. The fourth thing is going to come back to Him.
The almighty has promised us that He won’t just tell us to do and not to do things randomly. There will always be a deeper purpose whether you understand it or don’t is beside the point. He says I will tell you what to do and what not to do. Allah says that in the Quran when He has laid instruction it’s never to create difficulty for you.
It might be difficult for a moment but long term you will definitely see the fruit of following the instruction of the Almighty. So the doubts that are created in the minds of the people are cleared when you understand who your Maker is. When you realize what revelation is all about.
Look at how science and technology and all these researchers keep changing their findings over time. Allah subhana wa ta’ala is telling us the sun moves to a certain extent. There was a time when people said impossible. The earth moves. When technology and science denied it completely people began to find fault in the revelation and said Revelation is wrong. Generations’ later people had to admit though the Sun moves but very little. Allah didn’t say how much it moves. He just said it moves.
Therefore ultimately Allah says something amazing in the Quran. We will show them and continue to show them signs within the horizons and in themselves, we will continue to show them more and more signs as the times pass that will prove to them ultimately that the Quran is the truth, subhanAllah.
we have already seen from the very beginning, the time of Muhammad (ﷺ)that those who felt this was wrong and that was wrong over time. they were found to be wrong but the Quran was right. – Mufti Menk
This is Bushra right, this is good news.
Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “Any group of people that assemble in one of the Houses of Allah to recite the Book of Allah, learning and teaching it, tranquility will descend upon them, mercy will engulf them, angels will surround them and Allah will make mention of them to those (the angels) in His proximity.” [Muslim]. Arabic/English book reference: Book 9, Hadith 1023
Sakinah / tranquillity will come down upon them, tranquillity it feels as if all of the troubles of your life have been lifted at least for this hour. Rahmah (mercy of Allah) envelops them.
If the mercy of Allah touches you dear brother dear sister you have nothing to worry about in this life or the hereafter.
It is the promise of Allah (swt).
– Shaykh Ali Hammuda
Sometimes young people say that’s quite boring; why would Allah make us scared to test us and I tell them you know what why did you go to school? Well, I went to school so that I can live and I can get a job after I’ve graduated and I can do something so that I can earn so that I can have a comfortable life.
Well, Allah says this whole life is just like a school; you’ve come here you can get your qualification so that you have your certificate on the Day of Judgment so that you can have a comfortable eternity, your entire life thereafter will be comfortable. so there will be rules and regulations just like at any school there’s rules and regulations.
There will be so much like school but we’re ready to do that for schools and to learn for a few years 20 years to study so hard in order to be able to learn for the next 30 or 40 years because at the age of about 55, 60; they retire you which means your books no longner are gonna help you.
The clock is ticking. Something somehow somewhere needs to change our lives positively. because if it doesn’t we can have wasted our time in life.
we prepare for this worldly life which is not going to last long and we teach our children to prepare for the worldly life that’s not going to last long and it’s not wrong by the way to prepare for it but we prepare for it much more than the interests that we have in the hereafter which is far greater, subhanAllah.
The biggest examination ever is not GCSE, it’s not A level, it’s not your university degree, no. the biggest examination ever, the result of it shall be on the day of judgement. Don’t lose focus.
Do you know when you are listening to the words of Allah subhanahu wata’ala you’re meant to be concentrating, you’re meant to be listening, you meant to be thinking, you’re meant to be paying attention?
So when the Qur’an is recited, then listen to it and pay attention that you may receive mercy. (7:204)
One very important factor that I wish to mention the Quran is so powerful that when you listen to its explanation it will seem as though someone is addressing you and your problems, your issues as though they knew your life and your problems, you will wonder; how this Person did know what exactly to address? The reality is it is from the Maker He knew, He knows, H will know and He created everyone. So the verses that are recited and explained coming to you will definitely impact upon you in a very very positive way regarding issues that you are facing in your life. that’s why Allah says listen attentively.
It will make sense and it will definitely impact upon you as though someone knew your life and your problems, yes Allah does know your life and He does know your problems. – Mufti Menk
⚡️How A Small Good Connecting Back To The Highest Branch Of Faith ‘La Ilaha Illallah’‼️
Your life looks like through the concept of purpose knowing why you are here and in the process the how and the what becomes easy!!
when the prophet (saw) talks about the branches of Iman, the branches of faith and he (saw) says that Iman has 70 something branches and he said (saw) that the highest of them is la ilaha illallah then all the rest of them come out, that first branch of there is no god but Allah, there is no creator but Allah. There is no sustainer but Allah there is no one worth living for but Allah. There is no one worth unconditional obedience except Allah and he (saw) said the lowest one is that you remove something harmful from the road. So the prophet (saw) is connecting that faith to a very small thing that you would do in your life to remove something harmful from the road. Most people would not connect that to that La Ilaha Ilallah.
The prophet (saw) then says that there was a man that he saw strolling in Jannah because the only thing that he did was he saw something harmful in the road and he picked it up and he removed it. So that the path could be Ease for people and Allah (swt) eased the path of Jannah for him. It is not just that this person was walking on the side of the road or what and saw something harmful and removed it, it’s that that person connected it back to Allah subhana WA Ta’ala, he was intentional about what he was doing. He was purposeful about what he was doing. He made a mental and emotional, a spiritual connection to that act and that’s something special. That what takes a small deed and makes it a mountain in the sight of Allah subhana wa ta’ala because it’s not the size of the good deed that makes it accepted to Allah subhana wa ta’ala. It’s the heart that’s performing the good deed and making that connection to Allah (swt).
You have purpose; you do not belittle any of your good deeds because you realize that the one you’re doing those good deeds for is Allah. You’re connecting it to the creator.
Think about small good habits, a small good deed that is between you and Allah that people don’t expect of you but through it you seek Allah’s mercy and you make particularly a connection between that small good deed and your smallness in this world, your own vulnerability in this world and keep it up on a daily basis, as you don’t know which one of those that Allah (swt) is going to accept. Purpose is what takes the deeds that we do on a daily basis that are neutral in their nature and connect them to the Creator and that which is around us and enters us into Jannah- Sheikh Omar Suleiman
⚡️When you are softened, it’s a sign of the mercy of Allah ‼️
Your true piety is depicted by the softening of your heart. People are harsh; when they are harsh they are far from Allah. Open your heart, Be a person who’s good to others; be hard on yourself. Don’t be hard on others.
✅“It is because of the mercy of Allah that you (Prophet Mohammad ﷺ) are so lenient towards those around you. O messenger peace be upon him”. [From The Holy Quran]
Many people think tolerance means I’m going to give up my faith I’ll tolerate. So I don’t have to do what Allah has said. I don’t have to dress in a specific way. I don’t have to pray in a specific way. I don’t have to do X Y & Z that the Almighty has instructed that is a misconception completely. Tolerance has nothing to do with giving up your opinion. It has more to do with respecting the same right that others have of not giving up their opinions amazing!
As much as I am passionate about slam there are people who are passionate about Christianity, there are people who are passionate about Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism whatever other ISM even atheism. I can believe that I am correct and I do right to believe as human beings in whatever they consider to be the most correct, subhanAllah!
Religion has partly been hijacked by those who don’t understand scriptures, those who have misinterpreted it intentionally to suit their own agendas of creating disaster on the globe in the name of the most merciful.
O people, We have created you from a single male and female and thereafter We have made you spread as different peoples and tribes [From the Quran] why? Why is there black and white and yellow and brown, why are there different races, ethnicity, different sizes, different understandings, one word in order that you can recognize each other? You are different, not so that you can discriminate against each other.
Every race and every nationality and every ethnicity has in it good and bad. So you would be totally uneducated if you thought that a nationality in its entirety is bad just because of the acts of a few. – Mufti Menk
