Keep Saying This Powerful Dhikr And Allah Will Strengthen You During Tough Times | Mufti Menk

The main purpose of this supplication is a way for a believer to testify the greatness of Allah, to praise him, to worship him.

In Sunan Abi Dawud Hadith 19, it mentions that the apostle of Allah used to remember Allah at all moments.

It is through Allah’s will that things happen. Abu Hurairah reported in Al-Bukhari and in Muslim that Allah is with those who are with him.

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “Allah the Exalted says: ‘I am as my slave expects me to be, and I am with him when he remembers Me. If he remembers Me inwardly, I will remember him inwardly, and if he remembers Me in an assembly, I will remember him in a better assembly (i.e., in the assembly of angels).”

This sentiment is repeated in Surah Baqarah, ayat 152-153:

“So remember Me; I will remember you. And be grateful to Me and do not deny Me. O you who have believed, seek help through patience and prayer. Indeed, Allah is with the patient.”

The third kalima (also referred to as kalima tamjeed) is a perfect way to exalt Allah and remember him. Dhikr consists of two main ideas, the conscious effort required to move your tongue and the second is the niyyah or it’s effect in your heart.

Yes, remembering Allah will be rewarded as hadith 2910 Jami Tirmidhi “[Whoever recites a letter] from Allah’s Book, then he receives the reward from it, and the reward of ten the like of it.”

 

سُبْحَان اللهِ وَالْحَمْدُلِلّهِ وَلا إِلهَ إِلّااللّهُ وَاللّهُ أكْبَرُ وَلا حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللّهِ الْعَلِيِّ الْعَظِيْم

Transliteration: subhanallah walhamdulillah wala ilaha illallah wallahu akbar wala hawla wala quwwata illa billah aliyyil azeem

THE ENGLISH TRANSLATION OF KALIMA TAMJEED

The English translation of the third kalima is,

“Glory be to Allah and all praise be to Allah, there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and Allah is the Greatest. There is no might or power except from Allah, the Exalted, the Great One.“

Remember 3-Thing While Interpreting The Signs Of Istikhara And Marriage Failed Even After Istikhara | Ustad Asim Khan

What should you do when you are undecided in the perspective of Islam?  Well, you should pray istikhara.

the prophet (saw) in a Hadith that reported by Jabber (ra); He (peace be upon him) said if anyone of you has a serious concern on their mind meaning if you’re going to make a important decision about something then make istikhara and istikhara is to pray two special units meaning separate/ different not alongside any other prayer.

the short dua of istikhara

Transliteration
Allahuma khirli wakhtarli

O Allāh, grant me goodness, and choose for me.  (At-Tirmidhī)

The long dua of istikhara :

The method of istikhārah is to perform two rak’āt at any time of the day, other than the times when nafl salāh is forbidden. It is preferable to recite Sūrah Al-Kāfirūn in the first rak’ah and Sūrah Al-Ikhlās in the second. Thereafter one should praise Allāh ta’ālā, send salāh upon the Prophet sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam and then recite the following du’ā

Transliteration

Allāhumma innī astakhīruka biʿilmika wa astaqdiruka biqudratika, wa asʾaluka min faḍlika (a)l-ʿaẓīm fainnaka taqdiru walā aqdiru wa taʿlamu wala aʿlamu wa anta ʿallāmu (a)l-ghuyūb. Allāhumma, in kunta taʿlamu anna hadha (a)l-amra [mention decision here] khayrun lī fī dīnī wa maʿāshī waʿāqibati amrī faqdurhu lī wa ya (a)s-sirhu lī thumma barik lī fīhi. Wa in kunta taʿlamu anna hadha (a)l-amra sharrun lī fī dīnī wa maʿāshī wa ʿāqibati amri faṣrifhu ʿannī wa (a)ṣrifni ʿanhu waqdir lī(ya) (a)l-khayra haythu kāna thumma arḍīnī bihi.

O Allāh! I seek goodness from You, through Your Knowledge, and I seek strength through Your Power and ask for Your great Bounty, for You are able to do things while I am not, and You know while I do not; and You are the Knower of the Unseen. O Allāh, if You know that this matter [name your matter] is good for me, in respect to my Dīn, my worldly life and the consequence of my affairs, then decree it for me and make it easy for me, and then grant me barakah in it. And if You know that this matter [name your matter] is bad for me in respect to my Dīn, my worldly life and the consequence of my affairs, then turn it away from me and turn me away from it, and decree for me what is good, wherever it may be, and make me be pleased with it. (Al-Bukhārī)

 

Istikhara  is the idea of asking Allah for the best choice that is in front of you.

In fact the prophet (saw) said when any one of you is concerned about an issue i,e any issue, any significant decision in your life, you can make istikhara for.

istikhara doesn’t mean  that your choice that you make will be Problem free. That is just a false Understanding.

The Best Short Powerful Dua After Fajr Salaah With A Heart Soothing Voice

Recite these 4 words 3 times after Fajr Salaah

and they will be heavier in your scale of good deeds ان شاء الله
Sayyiduna Ummul Momineen Juwairiyah bint Al-Harith رضي الله عنه reported Rasulullah صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ came out from my apartment in the morning as I was busy in performing the fajr prayer. He صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ came back in the forenoon and found me sitting there. Rasulullah صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ said: “Are you still in the same position as I left you.” I replied in the affirmative. Thereupon Nabi صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ said, “I recited four words three times after I had left you. If these are to be weighed against all you have recited since morning, These will be
heavier. These are:
وَرِضَا نَفْسِهِ،
وَزِنَةَ عَرْشِهِ
وَمِدَادَ كَلِمَاتِهِ”
(Subhan-ALLAHI wa bihamdihi, `adada khalqihi, wa rida nafsihi, wa zinatah `arshihi, wa midada kalimatihi)
“ALLAH is free from imperfection and I begin with HIS praise, as many times as the number of HIS creatures, in accordance with HIS Good Pleasure, equal to the weight of HIS Throne and equal to the ink that may be used in recording the words [for HIS Praise].
[Muslim]

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.
