Know About Amazing Things During Ramdan & Set Three Goals For The Quran | Ustad Asim Khan

Every year, Allah (Swt) gives us a chance to earn His forgiveness, to purify our souls and to gain a position in the hereafter, that was before that impossible. That is the chance and the opportunity given to us in the month of Ramadan.

One of the duas the early Muslims used to read when they would sense Ramadan approaching, they would say, “Allahumma Ballighna Ramadan” which means  oh Allah! Deliver us to Ramadan.

Allow us to live to witness Ramadan, allow us to be living and breathing and able to reap the rewards that are offer in Ramadan.

The Prophet (Pbuh), he told us. He said, When the the month of Ramadan enters, then three things happen: Number one, the gates of Paradise are flung wide open, and number two, the gates of Hell fire are closed, and number three, the Devils are chained up.

It is as if the prophet (Pbuh) is saying that this is your chance to give up your bad habits And it makes sense because In Ramadan, you’re fasting and you’re thinking about Allah more often because every time you’re hungry, every time you’re thirsty, you remind yourself, Why am I doing this? Why am I suffering?

I’m suffering for the sake of Allah. And if I can say no to basic things like food and drink, I can say no to watch indecent things. I can say no to waste my time. I can say no to being rude to my parents. If I can control my hunger, I can control anything in my life. And that is a Ramadan becomes like a training program to nurture your soul and to make you more disciplined person.

Of all the things that Ramadan is known for, it should be known as the month of the Quran. That is the month in which the Prophet (Pbuh) received Revelation when he was inside the Cave of Hira and the angel Jibreel visited him, and revealed to him;

Read [O Muhammad!] in the name of your Lord who created. (96.1) the first five verses of the Quran that happened in the month of Ramadan. In fact, the night that that occurred is known as laylatul qadr.

The Prophet (pbuh), he said, The most beloved good deeds to Allah are the ones that are regular, even if they are small. So this Ramadan plan to run the marathon, not a race. Every day, set yourself goals that you know you can achieve and slowly build up to greater goals towards the end.

Because the Prophet (Pbuh) said, The good deeds are judged by the ending. So if you start great and your end poor, that’s not good. But if you start steady and slowly increase your stamina and your worship and you end big, in sha Allah, this is a sign that Allah has accepted all of your Ramadan.

Cultures, Marriageable age And Questions On Prophetﷺ Marriage! Mohammad Ali Vs Visitor | Speakers Corner

What is the age where you should marry a girl According to the Bible? Why is that better than a law in the country that says 18 and these ages on what basis are you picking?

Because the girls there grow up physically and psychologically in a different way where the girls do in your country. It is a part of their culture something that they are used to, is not something taboo.

But what people do, are judging their own culture when on a culture that that existed in a desert in Arabia 1400 years ago.

Do you know Aysha (Ra) was already engaged, before Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) does the contract with her. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) did not have marriage with her intercourse until she was nine.

Do you know one of his other wives which were called Safiyah (ra) married at the age of 10, not him someone else? That was how the culture was working at the time.

Do you know 200 or 300 years ago in the UK and in America what was the legal age of marriage? it was seven years old. Do you know why they used to marry young? There were wars. Who goes fights and Wars? Men. The girl reaches the age of puberty straightaway the girl is ready for marriage.

That’s how it was, but my question to you is this who defines an adult? Do you know according to books called ‘human development’ on average girls on the age of 10 years old reach the age of puberty.

In hot weather the physical nature of the girl grows much quicker than the cold natured, Do you know that? So, when we look back at 1400 years ago that was complete different elements. Girls used to grow maturely very easily. . It was the culture of the time. They were also psychologically very mature. Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) waited for 3 years. Why would he (Pbuh) wait 3 years? None of the people at the time of Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) have accused him of doing something wrong.

This society has an age restriction. Therefore they will look at you like you’re someone different. But that’s the problem. Who says this Society is right and the society 1400 years ago was wrong?

Have you been Have you ever been to the people who live in Mountains?  The people who only strictly live in mountains; How are these people grow and how the physical nature? I’m talking about countries which are hot. If you go there you will see how the girls look. The girl is 18 years old, and she looks like 21. They have different psychological, different societal, different environmental elements. You can’t apply your own standards on anyone else.

No one criticized him for marrying Ayesha (ra). Do you know why? [No, I don’t know.] That was the norm. Do you know the first wife of Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh)? How old was she? I think, she was 40 years old. How old was he? [28.] He was 25. So, someone wants to marry children, why would he marry someone 15 years older than him?

All of the wives of Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) were widows, divorcees. Why did he (Pbuh) need so many wives? That’s a good question. To bring the people close.

He (Pbuh) married girls, for example, Safiyyah (Ra) that I mentioned to you about. She was the daughter of the leader of the Jewish tribe in Mecca. That was their Tradition at the time.

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]

Your Best Moments In Life Could Actually Be The Moment That You Are All Alone | Ustad Asim Khan

During this unprecedented time; this new stage of humanity of the pandemic has brought with it strange tote unusual times.

Makes me think what is the plan of Allah (swt)/ what is it as Believers that we should take away from these strange times?

Is there any benefit/ any wisdom/ any reason? of course, the answer is yes, but what?

There are more people experiencing loneliness; the perhaps ever before.

feeling lonely leads to other mental health disorders life, feeling very anxious, being depressed, in worst case scenario feeling like you’re so lonely that what is the point living?

Just because you are alone doesn’t necessarily mean you are lonely. This is a very interesting way of looking at time when you are by yourself. Most of us have more free time working from home Etc.

From Surat al-mulk: Allah (swt) says indeed those who fear their Master and the Unseen, for them is forgiveness and a huge reward.

Interpretation-is that they fear Allah when they are all by themselves when nobody is around.

you recognize that time as a moment of being in solitude in the company of Allah, no longer have to worry about other people looking and what other people are thinking is just about what Allah sees.

Now your time alone in isolation as becomes a time where you the gain of closeness towards Allah (swt).

Ayesha (ra) was asked by ibn omar (ra): tell me the most amazing thing you saw from the life of the prophet (saw).

she said, I remember one night;  He woke up and I woke up and he said allow me to be with my Master, he asked permission to leave the bed and go to the prayer-mat and Ayesha (ra) said to be in your company. But I also love what you love…… And then she said I saw him standing the entire night in salatul tahajjud and then I saw him cry until his beard came moist and then I saw him cry more and to the place of his prostration became wet with his Blessed tears.

And then I said to him after he finished, yeah! Messenger of Allah, why do you do this to yourself, but Allah has forgiven you for what you’ve done your past and He said should I not be a grateful slave? Allahu akbar.

The moments that Allah gives you your life or you’re by yourself but those moments He gave you to see you take advantage of them. Do you remember Him on your lips? Do you think about Him in your heart?

And this is yet another way to lift yourself If you feel lonely to remind yourself that you know what? I’m not by myself; Allah is with me; just like Allah was with young Yusuf (A.S).

So your finest hours; my brothers; your best moments in life could actually be the moment that you are all alone.

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

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.

That One Hour Of The Best Day “Arafah” Of The Year Within The Best First 10 Days Of Dul-Hijjah | Sh. Said Rageah

The reason that these 10 days are so massive and so rewarding is in them; We have day of arafah like in Ramadan we have laitual Qadr. The messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, He summarized the whole Hajj and he said Hajj is Arafah.

The messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the day that is promised is the day qiyamah and the day that is witnessed is the day of Arafah and the day is Jumah. And the day of Arafah there is one hour. If this hour passes by a mumin that is asking Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala for khair (good), Allah would answer the dua of that person.

This hour comes to a servant of Allah while he is asking Allah to protect him from a certain evil then Allah will protect that from him. If you are outside of the hajj and you fast the day of Arafah, then Allah will forgive two years of your sins.

“Forgotten Sunnah Of Dhul- Hijjah” Well Explained By Dr Zakir Naik

Be kind and nice to people, be good to the neighbors. Be happy and cheerful and be nice and courteous to all the people living around you.

Do as much as the sunnah you can do it is better during the first 10 days of dhul-hijjah. Give as much time as you can for your family members

Every day after fajr Abu bakr (Ra) would go in an opposite direction of his house and he would go deep into the desert was very curious. I’m going to go follow him and find out what he’s doing.

He said I saw him go into this beat-up old house and he said he spent a long time in there, wasn’t like a short amount of time.  So, umar (Ra) said I waited until I could no longer see him meaning he made his way back to Medina.

omar (Ra) said I knocked on the door. Okay, and he said this woman opened the door. She was elderly she was frail. She was blind and they were a bunch of little kids running around. And she said that I’m a blind woman. And I have no one to take care of me.

Umar (Ra) said who is that visitor that comes to you every single day? The answer she says, I don’t know who he is.  He never once shared his name with me. umar (ra) said, what does he do?

May Allah reward him. Every morning, He comes, Listen, by the way, she details it.  She says he cleans my home. He washes our clothes. He grinds our wheat.  He bakes our bread. He cooks our breakfast and then he leaves, SubhanAllah, think about that. if this was the only Only narration we had about abu bakr (Ra) it’s incredible.

Never Ever Be Let Down By Your Past | Divorce Yourself From Toxic People Who Do Religious Blackmail | Mufti Menk

We are on earth right now where we have people around us who keep judging in a way that distracts us. People look at you, they judge you, they judge you based on what? based on your color, They judge you based on your complexion, sometimes on your height, sometimes on your size, sometimes on your nationality, Sometimes perhaps on something.. They judge you based on so many things; so much springs to my mind. They judge you based on your sins.

Allah judges you but he’s the only one who never judges based on your sin. Allah judges, you based on your repentance La ilaha Illa Allah.

People will never forgive the sin you’ve committed even if you’ve changed your life, totally in most cases they won’t… that humankind. Allah is the most merciful, the most forgiving, the most compassionate, the most kind the most good, etc.

Allah gets so happy when people turn to him. Allah says We wipe out your sins, Allah said, you know what let alone wipe out your sins. Whatever sins you’ve committed, We want to convert them into Good Deeds on the right side of your scale because you changed your life. You’re such a lovely person, never ever be let’s down by your past. Leave your past behind forget about it.

Divorce Yourself from toxic, people who might be in your circle of friends so much so that if it is a spouse who is toxic, Allah allows you to actually come out of it.

 

That is insulting, heaven lies at the feet of your mother is actually a statement that is sometimes used as religious blackmail to keep the person under the spell of a mother when the mother is toxic. And really nasty evil person who won’t even be subhanallah, who won’t be your door to Paradise, Not at all.

May ALlah make it such that people bear witness that we are really good people.

Allah Judges you based on your repentance not on your sin. Allah says your pasts can actually become the biggest blessing no matter how negative it was.  When you just turn to Allah, that is between you and Allah. Allah is here for you.

Sometimes you’re going through a divorce and you know what you went through it Once it was so painful. Divorce is never the end of the world. It might just be the beginning of your life. there will come a time when ease will come through, you go through a divorce.  You’re not the first person you’ll never be the last one. It may not be Be your first divorce, you might go through it again. And again and who knows the third, the fourth person, you’re gonna get to through marriage is going to be wow! The king of your dreams. subhanAllah, it can happen.

Man is such that when we’re going through the issue. It’s the end of the world. It’s not, just ride this for now, you know, the waves are coming in just ride the wave for now and you lay low for  a little while. Thank Allah develop your relationship with Allah. A day will come when you will have the last laugh and always as they say he who laughs last laughs the best.

You say o Allah, forgive me, It is a massive act of worship because you’re acknowledging that Allah is the owner of forgiveness, Allah is the owner of goodness. He’s the owner of punishment. He’s the owner of everything.

There is a hope for everyone, the worst from amongst us. There is a hope for and the best from amongst us must not become so proud and arrogant. – Mufti Menk
