every day is an opportunity for you to prove to Allah (Swt) That while you’re waiting for the day, you’re going to return to Allah, you are going to be the best possible person in your short Stay on Earth.
Anything that happens on Earth is also temporary. The only thing that carries with you; your Deeds. The way you did what you did for the sake of Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala. So let’s do as much good as we can on Earth.
Many people are losing faith, simply because of hardships they’re going through; they see no way out besides at times considering suicide.
Remember one thing Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala has prohibited suicide. He clearly says in the Quran and don’t ever kill yourselves. Indeed Allah is the most merciful upon you.
We all need to know Allah has Mercy over takes any problem or issue that we have. Rely on Allah, trust Allah. It’s a matter of time after Darkness. The light will definitely come.
It’s normal for human beings to feel low at times. It’s normal for human beings to be over thinking at times. It’s normal for someone to have a little bit of anxiety at times.
But remember lay your trust in Allah, number one. Believe in Allah; understand with conviction that Allah will resolve your matter.
We are on earth together for a very short period of time prove, to Allah that you are going to be the best of human beings by reaching out to the rest of the human beings in the most beautiful and productive way ever.
Prophet (saw) Abu Bakr (ra) and Omar (ra) buried next to each other.
Something happened in the life of the Prophet (saw)….
This is the qadr of Allah (Swt); the Baqi’ expanded to where Uthman (ra)’s grave became a part of the Baqi’…..
Many non-Muslims who inboxed me and said the Muslims are racist. I got a message.
The best of guidance Is the guidance of the messenger Muhammad sallallahu alehiwassallaam. The Best of Books is the book of ALLAH AZZAWAJAL, the Mighty, the Quran.
If you want to follow, If you want to judge Islam, don’t judge you according to individuals, If you want to judge Islam Then look at the best of example the messenger Muhammad sallallahu alehiwassallaam. If you want to follow Islam then follow the message of the messenger Muhammad sallallahu alehiwassallaam. And if you want to look for a book for guidance, then look no further other than the Quran, the final revelation.
The messenger salallahu alihi wasalam said there is no difference between a black or white, between a Arab or non-Arab…
And if you got a problem with the color of someone’s skin, Then you have a problem with Allah, do you know why? Because of Allah is the one who fashioned him, Allah is the one who made him, Allah is the one who created him. if you have a problem with a color of his skin then you are saying Allah, Almighty made a mistake and that could never happen.
All lives matters but this moment of time, black lives do matter
If you’re a racist and you hate black people, then just remember this that the prophet (saw) was breastfed from a black woman. The muezzin of the Prophet salallahu alaihe Salam belal (R) was a black man.
The prophet salallahu alaihe Salam, he demolished Racism and he said there are no difference between a black and a white, Arab and non-arab. Everyone is equal and and the only way a person could become better than another person, The Quran has given a definition is by taqwa; those who are God fearing…..
Most prominent ritual that people do in shawwal is fasting the six days of shawaal.
You have to make up for the missed days of Ramadan so that you would have fulfilled fasting the whole month of Ramadan. And after that you must… if you wish fast the six days of shawwal in order to fall under the category and under the reward of the Prophet (saw) that afterwards meaning after fasting Ramadan you follow that with six days of shawwal.
if I select to fast Mondays and Thursdays with the intention of the six days of shawwal, you get two birds with one stone.
How do I call upon Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala using His entire name’s in my supplication? so that I’m connecting to Allah from all of these different angles because at the end of the day to bring all of the 99 back together in our hearts in our minds and our thoughts, on our tongues is to completely overwhelm ourselves right with the contemplation of Allah who Is and how we connect with Him.
‘And to Allah belong all the best names, so call Him by them’ -Quran 7:180. How do I start to bring about all of the names of Allah into my supplication?
If we had a proper understanding of the name names of Allah, then the issues of faith that have been made primary will be rendered secondary. They’ll be turned into peripheral issues because you have such a trust in a faith in the name of Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala in the names of Allah and the attributes of Allah subhanawTaala. – Shaykh Omar Suleiman
When we were much younger, we had something known as corporal punishment. And you know what? They did it when they taught us the most sacred book in existence. What is that? What’s that book?
The Quran and then they say it’s the Sunnah of the prophet and I remember them lying to us telling us, the punishment of Jahannam will never touch the place of your body that the scholars whip has lashed on have you heard that one?
It’s a tale, ..Man.
The prophet Muhammad who was sent as a Mercy to Mankind salallahu alaihe wasalam, sent as a mercy to entire humanity and more and Beyond as a mercy how many have graduated in Quran and in hifz and in Knowledge from his hands and how many did he beat up? You follow? Not even one, subhanallah.
Because we are weak and we lack methodology of teaching. We take it out on the ones whom we are teaching and we turn them away from religion completely. – Mufti Menk
The globe today we are facing challenges where so many ideas, So many ideas are floating around online and on the net. As so many ideas, some of them are good ideas and a lot of them are just a waste of time. Many of them would lead us astray completely.
It’s up to you to pick up what is beneficial and what is not, you know, you see a video that is totally fake. It’s totally fake and you get so excited and pretend like it’s so true and by you believing it’s true you want to actually wipe out one whole category of society and later on when it’s too late you find out that was a fake. Have you ever come across something called deep fake videos?
Be careful. There is too much happening now and our children are exposed to much more than we were exposed. Communications have become such that you can be conned.
Don’t get excited. Anything you’ve ever done on your phone is retrievable. For every technology there is a counter technology, do not be fooled.
Remember, you might be on your own, don’t do something with your phone that you would be embarrassed the day the whole world found out what they was there. Don’t do that which is embarrassing With your phone, if you’re having a video call keep it proper.
People ask fatwas; Look my wife is far away. You know, I’m far away. Can we have a nude video call? From a religious perspective there is awrah, obviously there is an element of respect. Although there may be permissibility because the two of you are married, but you know what? There could be a third party and are in a lot of cases a third party, Somehow someway there was going to get involved in. you might just find that video one day somewhere a person will tell you I saw it on a porn site. It happened,
wallahi it has happened. People become suicidal, be careful. You will pay the price of it. Just learn to hold back a little bit know, you want to do things, not everything needs to happen with the phone. You don’t have to record, At every single moment of yours, the intimate moments keep them as a memory in your mind.
We came into existence because the Almighty made us. He decided that He wants to have us here. We did not decide that.
None of us chose to be here for example to be born where none of us chose the parents we have. None of us chose the children that we have in the case of those who have children. May the Almighty bless those who don’t have children with children, Ameen.
That itself already tells us that we are here on a mission. Because when you have an examination your questions are never chosen by you. It’s always someone else who decides to test you, to examine you by asking you things out of his will, not out of yours.
The Almighty chose I’m going to create you, I’m going to put you in a place without your choice, I’m going to throw you into the deep end to see what you do and part of the blessings of the Almighty is that he did not cause us to grow like trees but rather to have families and to be given birth to.
A family unit is actually a blessing from the Almighty. Today the world is drifting away from the family unit and teaching us that you know what? You do it alone. You don’t need your mom. You don’t need your dad. You don’t need your brothers and sisters. You don’t need this and so on and guess what’s happening? We’re becoming people who are not as content as we used to be. We are becoming people who are searching for contentment in every place and in everything. Besides we’re contentment lies.
I get people who complain to me my parents are very difficult. The first thing that comes to my mind is well that’s part of the test of the Almighty: what are you going to do about it? SubhanAllah and that doesn’t mean that I encourage parents to be difficult, because it is also a test for you when the Almighty’s blessed you with a child. you didn’t choose the exact child that you got. So don’t be so difficult my beloved parents.
Remember the world is changing. it’s part of your test to be polite, respectful, merciful, full of beautiful guidance and at the same time realizing that as time passes you will need to pass the baton to those children.
It’s not wrong to disagree with your parents respectfully where you feel that they are wrong, respectfully. When the Quran speaks about parents it emphasizes more on kindness and respect rather than obedience where the parents are wrong.- Mufti Menk
⚡️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
