Ibn Abbas (ra) said the documentation of Allah is every expression, every word and every signal whether it is expressed written or spoken. That’s the way that Allah documents
If you would not bring yourself to say it to someone, don’t write it.
When we use social media use it in a way that if you were to die for some reason you would not be embarrassed about the content that you have put out there.
As a Believer we should do that which is good. We should do that which is not embarrassing if we were to die and even if we did not die, but we need to be much more responsible when it comes to the use of social media.
In the Battle of Badr, which was one of the first battles that was fought by the Muslims to regain what they had lost, Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala tells us that two qualities if they’re found in people, the Angels may come to help them.
The day of Crisis, the day of war, the day when the belief of the Believers was being tested and Allah says remember when we helped you during the Battle of Badr, subhanallah.
if you are conscious of Allah and you bare patience with those two, Two characteristics if the enemy were to swipe at you right now, we would send you five thousand angels Guess what they were patient. They developed their taqwa.
Develop your patience, develop your relationship with Allah and here against the enemy Allah will grant you Victory.
In suratul Al-A’raf, subhanahu wa’ta’ala addresses us all by calling us Ya bani Adam! o children of Adam, don’t let shaitan trap you with his traps
Shaytan /devil trapped Adam and Eve/ Adam and hawwa May peace be upon them, and promised with his two things:
Be careful go and read about that, go and find out what shaitaan did, shaytan promised them two things, shaytan said if you disobey Allah, you’re going to live forever, and you will own everything.
Allah says shaitaan’s /devil’s Aim is to make you reveal your private parts, to make you take off your clothing,
Allah says watch out, shaytan wants you to be immoral, shaytan wants you to actually forget Allah. So He wants us and says be careful, don’t fall into the same trap of the devil. Otherwise, you will be exposed.
If you’re feeling more spiritual this moment at the end of Ramadan, then your Ramadan has been successful.
If the day of Eid is a day of obedience, a day where you still pray your qiyamul lail, a day where you still pray in the Masjid five times a day, a day where you still read the Quran and this is a huge sign that Allah azzawajal has accepted your qiyam and your reading of the Quran and your prayers in Ramadan.
So it’s important that we’re trying to form habits in sha Allah tala that will Outlast Ramadan and go beyond Ramadan.
one of the signs of an accepted Ramadan Is that our life changes, even if it were to mean or even if it was to mean just by a few inches, but the life has changed. If my life changes after Ramadan It means my Ramadan was correct.
Prophet Muhammad peace be upon Him explains to us who the bankrupt person is. And he says that it is a person who has a lot of good deeds, a lot of good deeds, but when they come on the Day of Judgment, they did wrong to people. So, Allah took those good deeds and actually gave them to the others, such that there were no more Good Deeds remaining.
So this is why Allah says when you do good deeds, make sure protect them by not engaging in harming others and come with them on the day of judgment, We will multiply that for you tenfold.
If a person does the bad deed, Allah instructs the angel to hold on not to write it against them yet for a period of time for a part of the day or a part of the night, why?
Perhaps this person might seek forgiveness. So there’s no need to write it yet. So we’re given a time after committing a sin to repent.
The guilt or the regret that a Believer feels immediately after committing a sin is actually the mercy of Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala.
Allah says When You Speak, When You Judge Between People, Be Just, Be Very Very A Fair And Balanced Even If It Is Against Your Own Relatives.
Allah says He Justice Comes First Whether It Is Against You, Your Mum And Dad Or Your Relatives.
I Make Mistakes, You Make Mistakes And Sometimes The Human Nature Or The Habits Begin To Show. If Those Habits Are Oppressive, You Need To Stand For Justice In Order To Comfort Yourself In That Crisis.
People Are Suffering, A Lot Of Homes Are Plunged Into Crisis And Those Crises Grow So Big Simply Because A Word Was Needed From You And You Didn’T Say It.
Don’T Confuse Obedience With Respect And Kindness And Remember Allah Said Justice Overrides Everything
Allah Instructs You Three Things, He Wants You To Be Just, He Wants You To Be Kind And He Wants You To Give Your Relatives, Look After Them. Justice Comes Before Kindness.
We as Believers firmly believe in the validity of this Destiny.
The best duaa on lailatul qadr are the ones that entail forgiveness because there’s nothing in the decree that is more precious to you that you should be seeking than the Forgiveness of Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala.
So we’re taught call out to Allah, call now to Allah. Calling out to Allah in supplication is actually the whole essence of worship.
