Watch! I Called Upon Allah But He Did Not Answer Me | Shaykh Omar Suleiman And Mufti Menk

When is the help of Allah subhanaw Taala going to come and particularly in the context of the Ayah; Do you think that you will enter into Jannah and then Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala to takes us through the various difficulties and to the point where the messenger and the Believers that are with Him say when is the help of Allah…

And verily the help of Allah is near?

We deal with the question of when meaning when I make duaa, when is it going to be answered?

Understand the way that Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala proportions his Mercy in this world in relation to the next.

Don’t concern yourself with the way that it’s going to be answered, just concern yourself with the ability to make that dua at in the first place And that is a blessing from Allah subhanaw Taala that you are driven to the ability to call upon Him.

For Allah to answer you in a way that is best for you,

You make that dua and you entrust that dua to Allah (swt) the One that you’re calling upon to answer it in a way that’s best for you.

The prophet salallahu alaihe wasalam said Allah subhanaw Taala will answer every one of you so long as you don’t become Hasty. How do you become Hasty? That a person would say I called upon Allah subhanaw taala, and He did not answer me.

Do not Let the shaitaan tell you that the delay in the answer to your dua is some indication of Allah subhanaw Taala not loving you,

You desperately want to marry someone and Allah knows that something really bad is going to happen afterwards. He may save you from it by answering your prayer by not giving you what you want simply because He loves you more than you love yourself, Subhanallah.

Allah definitely answers your prayer.  Your duty is to keep asking keep nagging, keep repeating repeat every day. He loves it when you repeat o Allah grant me, o Allah you are most merciful.

People say my dua is not answered. Number one: praise Allah, number two: Seek the Forgiveness of Allah, number three send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad Peace Be upon him his family, his household his companions, number four: ask what you want in the most beautiful ways and asking any language you want, keep repeating it and express how desperately you want it if you really shed a tear or two it would help because SubhanAllah, Allah is Very very merciful, you know when you shed a tear, subhanallah? It actually is another level of Supplication.

Then as you’re ending your prayer, make sure you end it again with the blessings and salutations upon Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam and perhaps some Praise of Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala, that’s how you ask Allah and if you were to proceed your supplication with a good deed the chances of it being accepted are far more.

 

Reflecting On Our Intentions And Actions Recipe For Jannah With A Powerful Dua | Shaykh Abu Bilal Sanel

Today’s khutbah  I dedicate for ourselves. Mahasabha/ reflecting, pondering about your own situation because we all know that the betterment of the ummah starts right here. Right here, at yourself in your heart.

We are good criticizing everyone around us. But Honestly, I think we struggle criticizing ourselves. Whereas, we see that the sahaba radi Allahu anhum, they were very very critical with themselves.

The recipe of a shahabi was in that story was that he was reflecting upon his own deeds and his own actions every single night before he went to sleep and his recipe for jannah That he used to forgive every single one of the Muslims who wronged him during that day.

a characteristics of True Believers; they really reflect what they have done during the day during the week, during the month, during the year. So to better them, keep on doing what you found to be good and get rid actively of the things that put you on the path of shaitan.

What have we sacrificed for Allah?

The sake of this Deen of Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala, for the sake of not you

We all have fantastic intentions when it comes to what we want to do Fi sabilillah in our life, But acting upon this intentions that’s where we struggled sometimes. how can you justify standing in front of Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala and say I worked the decade two, three and I knew it was haram. But I was too comfortable.

Look into the mirror and say what am I doing? Do something.

If Prophet Muhammad  Muhammad salallahu alaihe wasalam was to visit you today. What would you do? Would you be proud……

The change in the Ummah starting our houses in and if we can’t reflect upon our own situation, We have no right to criticize anyone else.

Asking Allaah for Taqwa and Purification of the Soul

Allahumma, ‘aati nafsee taqwaaha, wa zakkihaa Anta khairu man zakkaahaa, Anta Waliyyuhaa wa Maulaaha
O Allah, grant my soul taqwa and purify it, You are the Best of those who purify it, You are its Protecting Friend and Guardian/Master.

to have the willingness and their intention to change ourselves But then also recognize that we will not be able to do that fully except if we put our forehead on the ground and say Ya Allah help me.

Passionate Reminder For Takbeer-e-Tashreeq And Times To say | Shaykh Abu Usamah At-Thahabi

Takbeer of Tashreeq:
After each Fardh Salaah Recite from Fajr of 9th Dhul Hijjah until Asr of 13th “Allaahu Akbar,
Allaahu Akbar,
Laa ilaaha il-lAllaahu,
WAllaahu Akbar
Allaahu Akbar,
Wa Lil-laahil-hamd
(Allaah is the Greatest,
Allaah is the Greatest,
there is no god but Allaah; Allaah is the Greatest
and to Allaah be all praise),”

 It is Sunnah to recite takbeer at any time during the first ten days of Dhu’l-Hijjah and all the days of Tashreeq, starting from the beginning of the month of Dhu’l-Hijjah (i.e., from sunset on the last day of Dhu’l-Qa’dah) until the end of the days of al-Tashreeq, which is when the sun sets on the thirteenth day of Dhu’l-Hijjah).

 With regard to at certain times, it starts from Fajr on the day of ‘Arafah and lasts until the sun sets on the last day of the days of Tashreeq, in addition to the takbeer that may be recited at any time. So when a person says the tasleem at the end of the obligatory prayer, he should pray for forgiveness then start the takbeer.

 This is for those who are not on Hajj. The pilgrims should start the takbeer recited after prayer from Zuhr on the Day of Sacrifice (the 10th of Dhu’l-Hijjah).

 And Allaah knows best.

 [See Majmoo’ Fataawa Ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him), 13/17; al-Sharh al-Mumti’ by Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him), 5/220-224.] no need to say..

 

 

The Dua Of Prophet ﷺ On The Day Arafat | Keep Saying | Shaykh Abu Usamah At-Thahabi

The day of Arafah, which is the ninth day of dhul-hijjah. That’s one of the 10 days that some of the scholars said was the best day out of these 10 days because they have arafah.

The best dua that people made the prophets before Rasul’allah including the Rasulullah is that they used to say:

لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَهُ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ

Lā ilāha illallāh, waḥdahu lā sharīka lahu, lahul-mulku wa lahul-ḥamdu, wa huwa ‘alā kulli shai’in qadīr.

None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, alone without partner. To Him belongs all that exists, and to Him is the praise, and He is powerful over all things

Allah Does Not Lose His People! A Reminder During First 10-Days Of Dul-Hijjah | Shaykh Omar Suliman

Ibrahim/ Abrahim (A.S) is an amazing figure one who we take our Ritual from our Deen, from the great-grandfather of the Prophet salallahu alaihe wasalam who resembled the prophet (Saw) and the prophet (Saw)’s way resembles his way the most.

Hajar (A.S), wife of prophet Ibrahim (A.S) put into the spiral of uncertainty and has to figure it out along the way in a very unique way to her perspective and in a way that we can all take lessons of conviction and certainty in times of deep uncertainty.

This is a story of a woman that was in the house of the Pharaoh. hajar (A.s) at that point with full conviction, full certainty.

She said that Allah is not going to lose His people. I’m not worried then complete Sakina, complete trust, complete Tranquillity. Imagine this situation here; She’s going to be left in the desert with a baby. No one around her, but she says Allah does not lose his people.

Hajar (A.s) is demonstrating the most beautiful verses about what it means to trust in moments  Of uncertainty. You expect good from Allah, Allah will give you good.

As long as you have that certainty in Allah that it doesn’t matter what your circumstances are; Allah does not lose His people.

 

Dua at Mount Safa and Mount Marwah

إِنَّ الصَّفَا وَالْمَرْوَةَ مِنْ شَعَائِرِ اللهِ

أَبْدَأُ بِمَا بَدَأَ اللهُ بِهِ

اللهُ أَكْبَرُ ، اللهُ أَكْبَرُ ، اللهُ أَكْبَرُ

لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ ، لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ ، لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَحْدَهُ ، أَنْجَزَ وَعْدَهُ ، وَنَصَرَ عَبْدَهُ ، وَهَزَمَ الأَحْزَابَ وَحْدَهُ

Jabir (may Allah be pleased with him) said when describing the Prophet’s (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) pilgrimage: …and when he approached mount Safa he recited:

“Indeed Al-Safa and Al-Marwah are from the places of worship of Allah…”

“I begin with what Allah began with.”

…so he started with Safa and climbed it until he could see the Kabah, he then faced it and said:

“Allah is the greatest, Allah is the greatest, Allah is the greatest.”

…and then he would say the following three times making a supplication (one should make a personal supplication) after each time:

“None has the right to be worshipped except Allah, alone, without partner. To Him belongs all sovereignty and praise and He is over all things omnipotent. None has the right to be worshipped except Allah alone. He fulfilled His promise, aided His slave and single-handedly defeated the allies.”

…he (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) would repeat this action at Marwah.

 

The Best Deeds You Can Do During The Best 10 Days Of Dhul Hijjah | Mufti Menk

The days of the first 10 of Dhul-Hijjah are more valuable than the days of Ramadan speaking of daylight.

The prophet Muhammed (Saw) said there are no days in which Allah loves Deeds more than those that are done during these first 10 days of Dhul-Hijjah.

So if we were told that there are no days wherein Deeds are more loved by Allah then these 10; what should we be doing?

There is no point in sinning especially during a time when Allah says good deeds are most loved to me. We should be doing seeking the forgiveness of Allah often.

Why do you think He gives us these auspicious days and nights Him to tap us on the shoulder and tell us, it’s time you turned it to Allah.

Lailatul Qadr- Question On Making Dua As Destiny Is Fixed 50000 Years Before The Creation

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.

Lailatul Qadr- Dos And Don’ts while Making Dua | Mufti Menk

The Hadith says whosoever does not ask Allah, Allah becomes upset with that person, Subhan Allah.

The prophet Muhammad sallallahu wasallam says Allah Almighty hears every dua, every prayer, and every supplication. He gives you whatever He Wills to give you as a result of the supplication and it’s never a loss because if you ask Allah for something and He knows it’s bad for you. He may give you something else that is good for you.

One of the beautiful ways of seeking from Allah is to say o Allah if this is good for me give it to me, if it is not good for me. Keep it away from me.

When you call out to Allah, You can’t just make dua all night and then sin all day or as soon as you ask Allah, you’re not conscious of the instructions of Allah.

Keep calling out to Allah. Don’t be selfish when you call out to Allah, call out for others as well; your family members, your friends Even your enemies, the others the entire ummah, Humanity at At large, call out for everyone. When you call out for others. The angels are saying oh Allah give this person the same as well.
