The Prophetic Teaching In Resolving Marriage Problems: Divorce ⚠️Backbiting | Mufti Menk

Every marriage goes through a little bit of turbulence. If you’ve had a disagreement or a little argument which we should be avoiding but human nature that does happen. It doesn’t mean it’s the end of the marriage. people for every small thing, They say we want divorce or we want out of this marriage that is not the prophetic teaching.

So Allah wants us to try, He wants us to sacrifice whenever we’ve had an issue. We should try our best to make things work. A good communication is essential for a happy marriage.

Some people are divorced when they don’t want to be divorced. They feel that they could have made it work and it is quite depressing sometimes and a lot of anxiety comes into play.

You need to know something Allah says in the Quran giving you a lot of comfort.

The verse number 130 of surah an-nisa if the two separate in divorce, the two have divorced, Allah will bless both of them with His virtue, because He definitely is the owner of great virtue and He is very wise. Allah has broad virtue subhanallah.

So remember divorce is not the end of your life. It could be the beginning of a much happier life. So Allah says when you separate be respectful, you don’t need to engage in mudslinging, speaking bad about the other. You need to worry about yourself to the degree that you ask Allah for Goodness, not just for you but even for your ex-spouse.

Let’s learn to try our best and ultimately if it does end in divorce, it’s not the end of the world.

When you complain to Allah Almighty Remember, He hears you, He will definitely come to your help. But when you have been wronged there is no harm in warning others or even informing them.

Condition For Resolving Marital Disputes By Allah (SWT) | Mufti Menk

In surah An-Nisa Allah says how He will grant them the acceptance to solve the #problem who fear that there may be a #split in the relationship of #marriage….

Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala speaks of difficulty in marriage and he spoken about this in many places in the Quran. A reminder always helps those who believe.

So, Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala tells us if you are fearing that there may be a split in the relationship of marriage, then if both of you really want to solve the problem. It is Resolvable. It can be solved.

The condition is both of the parties need to want to solve the problem.

The intention should not be to pick on someone, the intention should not be to battle who was right and who was wrong, but the intention Allah says should be we want to go forward. This intention is so Noble if both parties are sincere in it. They will be able to resolve the matter.

Know Who Your Enemies Are | Citocs-Ep19 | Mufti Menk

Yes, we do have enemies. We may know some of them and perhaps we don’t know some of them but the biggest enemy is the devil/shaitan.

He makes us think at times beyond the level that we’re supposed to be thinking upon and we start doubting people. He creates fear in our hearts.

He makes us doubt good people sometimes and we begin to think that perhaps they are our enemies. Yet they’re good people and sometimes he makes us draw closer to the real enemies so that we become those who have lost either in our relationship with Allah or in any other way.

وَاللَّهُ أَعْلَمُ بِأَعْدَائِكُمْ ۚ وَكَفَىٰ بِاللَّهِ وَلِيًّا وَكَفَىٰ بِاللَّهِ نَصِيرًا – 4:45

Wallaahu a’lamu bi a’daaa’i-kum; wa kafaa billaahi waliyyanw wa kafaa billaahi naseera

And Allah is most knowing of your enemies; and sufficient is Allah as an ally, and sufficient is Allah as a helper.

Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala tells us in Surat annisa. That He knows better than you who your enemies are. SubhanAllah. How many of us have actually accused the innocent of being an enemy? How many of us have befriended an enemy? So we’re sometimes confused because we judge people. May Allah (SWT) forgive us.

If you develop a correct relationship with Allah, he gives you the ability to distinguish. Do you have a good relationship with Allah? Yes, well then forget about it. He will protect you. He will definitely be there for you.

For Whom Allah Will Remove His Veils Of Light And Pride | Shaykh Ali Hammuda

In the life of prophet Yusuf (A.S), how he practically behaved with Ihsan so that we can compare these descriptions Upon Our Lives and that we have something practical to work with.

And the answer is yes, the Quran from Surat Yusuf has given us examples of how yusuf (A.s) behaved with Ihsan in different predicaments, different circumstances and different countries as well. But the objective was always one in his life to be a person of Ihsan.

Acting upon the station of ihsan is not easy because it is a station that governs not only how you behave outwardly how you behave inwardly. How you wake up and how you sleep and how you socialize, how you talk, How you dress, how you don’t, Allahu Akbar, all of this comes under the category of Ihsan?

And therefore it is a difficult station to attain and this is precisely why Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala has told us and given us a sneak preview of what He will offer to those who trying their best to live by Ihsan.

Allah loves the people of Ihsan and the mercy of Allah Almighty is close to the people of Ihsan.

the reward for the people of Ihsan is jannah/ Paradise, the home of Ihsan But there is more than Jannah allah-u-akbar

no Angel has prepared this reward, they were taken by now is the time to see the face of Allah, the Majestic Allah Almighty begins to remove the veils of light and the veils of Pride between us and Him and all of a sudden Allah Almighty that Lord whom you and I had worshipped for many years in the Unseen, you are now able to see Him with your very eyes LA ilaha Illaallah.

seeing the face of Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala is that which is better than jannah, that is why Allah, he said for the people who behaved with Ihsan we will give them the best and extra, the best that is Paradise and the extra that is seeing the face of Allah Subhanahu wa’ta’ala, Allah Akbar.

In the wake of every difficulty in your life. Make your priority How am I going to behave with Ihsan?

Seize The Moment When Allah Is Asking You “Is There Anything You Want” | Mufti Menk

It is a great Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad Peace Be upon him, stand up in prayer At night and make sure that you have earned the pleasure of Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala during Ramadan.

When you get up for the pre-dawn meal that moment is the same moment of tahajjud. The pre-fajr prayer is known as tahajjud. It is so blessed.Because Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala calls out saying who is Seeking forgiveness that I can forgive them, who is repenting that I can accept it and who is asking me anything so that I can give them.

Three things To Build a special status with Allah | Allah’s response to His Friends | Shaykh Omar Suleiman

Close friends of Allah are very much so scattered amongst the people and you don’t know who they are. In fact, some of the Awliya Allah themselves don’t know that they’re wali of Allah. They don’t quite understand how much Allah loves them and how they could have ascended in those ranks.

Three ways that ulemas mentioned that a person attains that status of wilayah of that special friendship with Allah Subhanahu wa’ta’ala. The one that the prophet (saw) narrated and Hadith in qudsi that whoever takes wali of mine someone that is  beloved to me of mine, that special friend of mine as an enemy, I will wage war on him.

Ambiya & Awliya they’re hidden. Ali (ra) said Allah has hidden two things amongst people; He’s hidden His pleasure in His Good Deed. So you don’t know which of the Good Deeds the one that unlocks His pleasure is. And Allah has hidden his Awliya; special friends amongst the people.

There are three things that allow a person to attain that state. The first one is that you do, you fulfill the obligations  and you do good until you taste the sweetness of that good which is the pleasure of Allah and that becomes your unique driving force and The pleasure of Allah becomes your exclusive driving force in life.

And now you start to do the voluntary Deeds until Allah loves you. Until Allah loves you with that exclusive Special Love.

Second one, Is that the sincerity of your repentance? It’s actually a more sudden one, a person makes a sincere repentance to Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala for Allah subhanaw Taala.

The third one is Allah tests you with a major tragedy. Allah takes away something from you and through that tragedy you do… which is to seek the reward and the reward is Allah’spleasure.

He knows that worldly status is not what conveys, confers status on a person but he had a special status with Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala, so he said well I ask you by your love for me that you would allow rain to come upon all of us. Ibn Abbas (ra) said I was the only one close enough to that man where I could hear his Dua and as soon as he finished making that dua, started to rain upon all of us.

 

I looked at him and I thought who is this man? Subhanallah simple servant of Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala, he was not a alam, wasn’t a scholar. He wasn’t giving kutbah (sermon). He wasn’t someone that was known he didn’t have any prominence, but he had a status with Allah.

If a person reaches that position, it is special and sometimes again, you don’t know.

-Shaykh Omar Suleiman

Celibacy In Islam | Analogy On The Likeness Between Clothing And Marriage | Tranquility In Relationship | Shaykh Ali Hammuda

Conformity to the way of the messenger (saw) as a rule all of the doors that lead to Paradise are shut with the exception to the door that is the door of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alaihiwasallam I,E his Sunnah.

What is amazing is that Conformity to the Sunnah is found is found in the institution of Islamic of Islamic marriage between a man and a woman.

The prophet Muhammed (saw) said I am the one who fears Allah Almighty the most and I have far more takwa consciousness of him than you. However, I pray and I sleep and I fast and I eat and I marry women. He said so whoever turns away from my sunnah, my way. Then he’s not from amongst us. So prophet (saw) prohibited Celibacy. It is not part of the religion.

Allah said you are a garment for them and they are a garment for you. I don’t think a human being can bring about a more beautiful comprehensive description of the nature of the relationship between man and woman in marriage.

What else does cloth do? Does it not protect us from the cold of the winter and the Heat of the summer, right? And that’s what marriage does they are protection for one another; Financial, Protection physical, protection emotional protection, moral protection, Islamic protection. La ilaha illallah,

How then can it be that a person then complains of a spouse who is offering them a Bruising fist every other day? Is this the type of clothing for each other that Allah Almighty has described marriages being for ourselves? Undoubtedly, not.

There is a love that is a miracle from Allah, the marriage between man and woman is one of the truest miracles in front of us, but it requires thought and Marriage it is one of the clearest paths for a human happiness in the life of this world.

Allah says from His many signs is that he has created from yourselves, spouses so that you may find rest in her and he has between you both love and mercy, and then the ayah concludes indeed in this there are signs for people who think.

The image of Marriage that is painted To Us by not just Society but my TV and social media is a fake one, that Bollywood or Hollywood image of him boy meeting girls and they lived happily ever after doesn’t exist in the life of this world and the same way that we don’t believe TV with respect to what they say about Islam and Quran and Jihad, we should not believe TV about what they say is the definition of an ideal marriage.

We are looking to deal with those major issues the axioms the pillars of a marriage that are crumbling down in order to ensure that there is Everlasting Love and everlasting Sakina between the couple and it is possible and we’re going Sakina between the couple and it is possible and we’re going to discover that it is not marriage that makes you happy it is you that makes your marriage happy.

It’s a choice brothers and sisters and being Muslim and married and very happy. These are not oxymoronic. These are not contradictory descriptions. It is possible to be all of them, but it is based upon a choice that needs to be made and some effort and Allah Almighty has promised to fill the hands of such a person with goodness if he or she wants to make those decisions.

A Good Ending! Learn From Celebrity Deaths | Who Are The Wisest Believers ~ Shaykh Omar Suleiman

The prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that be frequent in remembering the destroyer of pleasures “death”. he said sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam and this is a hadith from Ibn Omar (Ra) that  a man came to the prophet (saw), he said which of  that a man came to the prophet (saw), he said which of  who’s the best of the believers? He said the one who has the best character and then he said in which of them is the wisest the prophet (saw) said that the wisest amongst them are those that remember death frequently and are the best at preparing for it.

They put death in front of them and they craft their life accordingly. They don’t get deflated; depressed by it, manage it unhealthily. They used that thought of the janazah and they craft their entire life in accordance with that janazah. How do I want to meet my lord? Everything goes from that.

Remember the most important relationship is your relationship with your Lord and you have to ask yourself which you’ve prepared for your meeting with him.

That’s what made Muhammad Ali so great (rah) the greatest athlete and one of the greatest people that this country knew. He said God doesn’t care if I beat Joe Frazier. God wants to see if what I’m going to do in this life to get to heaven. That’s what God cares about.

So what’s your own legacy? What’s your own book look like? What will you leave for people to pray for you in this life? What will you take with you for Allah and the Angels to pray upon you in the hereafter……….

Don’t say things today that you’re gonna have to apologize for tomorrow.  You know on all the tributes pouring out after the death of Kobe Bryant and people talking about. Death can snatch you  away from people just [a snap] like that  do you really want the last thing to be between you and someone that’s beloved to you and important to you a fight or a feud? Squash those grudges.

Finally the prophet (saw) said, don’t long for what other people possess.

What are we doing with our own priorities? What are we really longing for? What are we aiming for? That’s a lesson for all of us to take.

We ask Allah subhana WA Ta’ala to make the end of our lives the best of them. We ask Allah subhana WA Ta’ala grant us a good ending, a good death.

Why We Have Differences! First Chaos On Earth By Cain/Kane | Why We Are Failing ~ Mufti Menk

From the very beginning Adam alayhis-salam he had children. Every one of them had a different brain capacity. They thought  differently. They understood at different levels. Every one of them had a different eye ray, a different thumb print, a different identity, a different face, a different complexion etc, that is Allah.

This is the creation of Allah. Every one of us is totally and absolutely unique not only human beings but also every creature. No two will be exactly the same that is the creation of the Creator.

Naturally because we think differently. We will have differences. The first difference that Allah makes mention of right at the beginning in the same children of Adam, first generation of human beings. The story of the two sons of Adam they were both sons from different wombs but they were brothers, recite to them the story when they sacrificed something for the sake of Allah it was accepted from one of them and rejected from the other. so the one whom it was rejected from jealous look at the understanding, look at the brain capacity, look at the way he looked at things and he told him I will kill you.

look at what Qabil did Qabil is the name of the killer in the English language came the name Cain /kane is used Qabil, one of the sons of Adam, he was the son of the first of the creatures of Allah loved by Allah, adam alayhis-salam and Eve they were loved by Allah, Allah chose him to be the first our grandfather, the great great grandfather subhanAllah, he is the connection through which we are all brothers and sisters by the will of Allah. Allah (swt) tells us the story not for nothing for us to learn a lesson, Qabil comes about you know what he does? He decides I’m going to kill my brother. The brother is Habil, Habil in the English language Abel, so one is Cain /Kane, he is the killer and one is abel, he is the one who was killed, ok. What did Habil say to his brother just before he was killed?

It’s a very powerful statement that Allah mentions in the Quran Allah says the brother told his brother oh my brother, remember the brother just threatened to kill him right? oh my brother, if you are going to extend your arm to kill me I want to tell you I’m not going to extend my arm to kill you. because I fear Allah, i am conscious of Allah, who is lord of the worlds, I know. I don’t want to destroy my relationship with Allah by risking killing you.

Today people kill anyone and everyone in the name of the same Allah whom Allah says to us when Habil was making the statement he said I fear Allah who is Lord of the Worlds that’s why I’m not going to kill you. But today we kill the people thinking that we fear Allah. You see where we have gone upside down here and we use all sorts of different evidences to prove our point,

We are all creatures of Allah.  You’re a true mumin, you believe in Allah if you believe in Allah you will believe that the same Allah who made you, made them. And if you believe in Allah and you want Allah to love you, you will love what Allah created and you will want goodness for those you will want goodness.

Allah (swt) from that story has taught us that there will be differences if you deal with these differences wrongly, you will destroy yourselves and you will regret.

Allah says because of that we prescribed that you know what? Whoever is going to kill some innocent soul, whoever is going to cause that is equivalent to the one who has destroyed entire humanity and if you save one life that person is equivalent in reward and in good deed similar to he or she who has saved entire humanity.

No matter, how much I differ with you, I need to make sure that I respect the fact that you are a human being and that Allah gave you life. I differ. I am to respect the person’s life does not mean you agree with them.

May we be respectful to one another even though we may disagree. When you disagree very strongly with someone that is not reason to disrespect the fact that they are human beings and they are owed the right as human beings for you to respect that life. – Mufti Menk
