Complaint about YOU! – 7th Ramadan Boost – Mufti Menk
Lessons from the surat Al-Furqan. Allah tells us us about what will be happening on the Day of Judgment and he tells us what will be the issues that people will regret?
Allah says while you are thinking about all of what you want on earth; remember there will be certain things you will regret when you come on the Day of Judgment. One of the things Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’ala
One of the things Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’ala talks about very loud and clear is the distance between us and the revelation. When there is a distance between us and the Quran we will regret it.
one of the biggest regrets that man would have on the day of judgment is Allah sent you a message regrets that man would have on the day of judgment is Allah sent you a message and you didn’t bother looking at what that message was.
The second matter the issue of company, the issue of your friends the issue of those around you is raised very powerfully in this surah Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala speaks about those who will regret on the day of judgment, they will regret their company the people they had around them.
You need to ask yourself two questions what type of friends do I have? What type of people do I interact with? That is question number one; question number two is what type of a friend am I to those whom I interact with? – Mufti Menk
What is the reward of a person who doesn’t fast?
Many of the women are asking about the reward of a person who or a sister who cannot fast because of her going through her menstrual cycle, her periods that is a very very interesting question.
Why did Allah decide that a person who’s going through their menstrual cycle cannot fast? Well, it is the decree and decision of Allah. When He says don’t fast you won’t fast. When He says fast you fast, when He says it is optional with some fasts you know the voluntary fast then it becomes totally optional.
So, the idea here is not about fasting. It’s about obeying Allah. Don’t forget that. It is about the obedience of Allah. Remember the acts of worship do not benefit Allah but rather the obedience of Allah benefits us. So it’s not about whether you fasted or not when it comes to the reward. It’s about whether or not you obeyed the instruction of Allah.
So the reward is great. The reward is always with the obedience of Allah subhanahu wata’ala. If you obey Allah, that is where the reward lies.
Those people who want to take medication in order to stop that menstrual cycle from coming you know it is medication perhaps that would stop that blood completely.
Now the issue again number one is what is natural is always the best. Let things flow, let things go and let things happen according to nature it is healthier for you. It is better for your life for even with allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala you are losing nothing.
If there is medication you need to look at the side effects. You need to look at what it does to you. There are so many side effects one of them is long-term bloating. it’s because of the contraceptive pills you are having or perhaps because of pills that are within your system in order to stop what was natural. So you’ve got to be careful not everyone’s system agrees with the medication and not every medicine agrees with all the people. So that’s sometimes a side effect. Another side effect I’ve heard about I’m not a doctor but I’ve heard sometimes tumors that may develop over long prolonged usage of this medication. One thing if your period was something that was regular. There are some people who complain of irregularity that is permanent thereafter because something happened and you messed up with your system.
Although if you were to stop it through those pills, your fast is still valid, Allahu Akbar.

WARNING❗️ Watch what you say about others. It will come back to haunt you‼️ – Mufti Menk
✅The damaging effects of saying bad things, using dirty words, condemning and using derogatory terms to refer to others is absolutely detrimental to our peace, our own peace and coexistence and long term peace and harmony across the globe. it is happening on a smaller scale within families, within societies and communities within a broader circle internationally too.
✅Yes, there will be differences; you will explain, perhaps Express be very very respectful in the way you do things, in the way you speak. No need to swear anyone, no need to be derogatory, no need to spew hate absolutely no need. You must make sure that you have been respectful. You carry yourself with utmost respect.
🛑Watch your heart, guard it. Don’t let the hatred go beyond a certain point where you lose your own respect by using cheap language. Let us let us protect ourselves our nation’s humanity at large from wars erupting from people generations down hating each other.
🛑Watch your mouths, watch your tongues, watch what you say and watch what you type. Don’t just spew hate. show that you’re different, prove that you’re a person full of love , full of kindness, full of understanding compassion, even in difference of opinion be just be fair and more than anything else, be respectful – Mufti Menk
The hadith of the Prophet (saw) where he says what Got to you was never meant to miss you and what missed you was never ever meant to get to you.
When things go wrong according to you, they have gone right according to the Almighty; thank the Almighty and just praise Allah; you don’t know why he kept you. You know what the loss is obviously there, we are never in a lose situation. We’re in a win-win situation. We are believers, we win everything. So, when things happen not according to what you wanted thank Allah twice thank Allah- Mufti Menk
