The prophet Muhammad (pbuh) says, and even if you learned one verse, convey to the people.
‘Through You’ Emotional Reminders By Mansur After Her Shahada| Speakers Corner
Try to learn about Islam. Understand Islam. Make yourself better, representative of Islam. Practice Islam so that the people by through your actions and your etiquettes and your attitudes and your manners and your behaviors, they will be more interested in Islam.
Our lives may be limited. Do we know when you’re going to die? We don’t.
But we want to continue the legacy through you, In sha Allah, continue and help the people who haven’t seen the light.
Try your best to learn and to impart this knowledge to people so people can at least accept Islam and not go into hellfire.
People might say, well, when do I recognize the sign of Istikhara?
Have you tried your best? Yes. You have. You’ve tried to explain? You’ve tried to explain? Yes. You’ve tried to talk? Yes. You’ve tried to say whatever? Yes.
Is nobody convinced? Is there no movement this way? No. In fact, the movement is the other way.
well, then close the door and move on.
It is recommended to talk to someone you’re intending to get married to, to communicate with them. Don’t hide behind holiness and religion to say, I’m not going to communicate at all.
Let’s face another reality. The problem with us is we develop a haram relationship and donate our hearts free of charge to this charity known as a boyfriend or a girlfriend. And we’ve given them the heart and the soul before we’ve involved the first family member. So we were blinded to all their faults.
And then we come up and want to impose it on everyone and say, you know what? I’m going to marry this jackal from down the road.
Don’t make mistakes. Don’t donate your heart before involving your folks.
I tell you what, the kids of those who have had decent marriages, may Allah make all of us from among them. You see it in the children. You see when children witness the love and affection between parents, the time you spend to look at each other and smile and say good words and words of love and romance, wallahi, it empowers them.
Perhaps the gap between the sins is actually made longer, which is a sign of improvement. But the day you think you’re not clean enough to pray to Allah is the day the devil, Shaitan, has convinced you that you’re not even worth it. That was his plan.
Don’t allow that day to come. Remember to turn to Allah. Don’t give up. Never give up. You navigate through your difficulties just like we all do. They may be bigger, but Allah has given you the strength to go through it.
We love Allah so much that we should be concerned about earning His anger or doing something that would spoil the relationship between us and Allah.
Whenever we have faltered, whenever we have done something wrong, because we are human beings, Allah Almighty has favored us with one of His greatest favors, and that is the acceptance of repentance of a worshiper.
If Allah forgives you, even if you have nothing on earth, you have succeeded.
And if Allah has not forgiven you, even if you have everything on earth, you have failed.
It is possible that a person can go to paradise because of a sin and go to the hellfire because of good deeds.
It is possible that a person, he commits a sin and he feels so bad about he feels so guilty about it that he decides to take a U turn in his life.
He repents to Allah and makes a solid determination to change his lifestyle such that he starts to do good deeds. And he continues that pursuit until he breathed his last breath and entered paradise.
And it’s also true that person that the good deeds ends up in hellfire because when they do great deeds, they start to think highly of the souls. Because when they do great deeds, they start to think highly of the souls. They become conceited. And then that leads to pride in the heart. And Allah does not like pride.
And eventually they start to turn away from Allah, both inwardly and outwardly, until they breathe their last breath and let end up in Jahannam.
If something bad earns you a sin, the opposite of it, when it’s good, will earn you a reward.
I’ll give you an example, the hadith of the Prophet (pbuh), he says, you know, when you fulfill your base desire in a halal way, you get a reward; reward of a charity.
Never let your happiness disconnect you from Allah. And never let your sadness disconnect you from Allah.
Whenever you’re happy, thank Allah; Two units of prayer.
Whenever you’re sad, praise Allah; Two units of prayer. Seek help from Him.
I promise, if anything has ever brought you close to your Maker, even by a millimeter, it was a blessing from Allah, not a punishment. A punishment is when you’re driven so far away from Allah that you’ve just forgotten it.
So sometimes when you’re getting a lot of things, it could be something negative. When if you’ve been driven away from Allah by what you received.
Allah knows you’re a human being. Allah knows the pressures and the stresses you’re going through.
Allah knows the environment you’re living in. Allah knows the circumstances you are facing more than anyone else. Allah knows the challenges that you have. Allah knows that you’re trying to make ends meet.
Allah knows that you’re faltering from time to time. He knows that you’re dropping back into the same sin again and again.
Each time you regret and say,
oh, Allah, I’m weak. I’m a human. Forgive me, O Allah. I’m not doing this out of defiance of you. You are my Maker. I have none other than You to forgive me, to have mercy on me, to carry me into the hereafter. But it’s my human weakness that makes me fall into this.
What a beautiful relationship with Allah.
You need to know, even if you have not been praying, the day you start is the day you shall succeed.
It’s not the end of everything. Are you not breathing?
Well, There’s a hope for me and hope for you. And when I do, I’m convinced, He’s not just going to throw me aside and punish me and so on.
This something which is the energy that you already believe in; to assemble something, it requires a lot of knowledge and wisdom and will. [I agree] So you are already personifying this energy.
God is a Creator of all things that you see and things that you don’t see. He’s the Creator. That’s why we call Him the Creator.
If we are here, there has to be something always and there has to be the necessary being because there cannot be a point where those absolute nothingness.
So something that is always in existence is called the eternal existence, which eternal existence is not brought about by something else, because it is inherently self-subsisting and self-existing.
