Beware Of The Word If When Things Didn’t Turn Out The Way That You Wanted | Shaykh Omar Suleiman And Mufti Menk

Hadith says strive to seek that which will benefit and do not feel helpless. Then the prophet (saw) said and then if something overwhelms you then say it is the decree of Allah and He does what He Wills.

So, basically this is Once you have put forth your best and things don’t turn out the way that you want to turn out then say I did my part; Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala has decreed and I’m pleased with what He has decreed.

We never become dependent on our best efforts, we instead put forth our best efforts, but we always recognize the limitations of our efforts and recognizing the limitations of our efforts does not diminish them…. balance between our role versus the decree of Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala.

Patience in the midst of all of that Devastation:

Don’t beat yourself up so much over The outcome, seed the positive see what comes out of this for you in regards to the outcomes and don’t go back and say if I would have done this differently, if I would have done that differently…..

Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala had a plan for you and the end of that plan is good for you.

How To Deal With Spiritual Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder – Ustad Asim Khan

We remind ourselves that Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala, He wants ease for us and He does not want difficulty. Allah says in the Quran in Surah al-baqarah verse number 185: Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship.

So don’t perceive Allah as a God who demands, you know a level of perfection from you because Perfection is beyond human endeavor.

Allah is generous. Allah (swt) is forgiving. do not place a burden on yourself that Allah has not placed upon you and moreover do not let Shaitan come between you and Allah (Swt).

Cleanliness is half of faith but at the same time Islam is against obsessiveness and extremism

“I Want Good For You” The Pain Of The Parents And Vice Versa – Shaykh Omar Suleiman

You will one day come to know what I have said to you.

==================================

Allah (swt) guides whom he Wills. You don’t guide whom you loved and so you do your best but you disconnect yourself, you take responsibility, but at the same time you acknowledge your lack of control over the situation. you, leave that to God…

This person is being spoken to by their parents and saying look I want good for you. You’re going to remember this one day; I’m trying to guide you to a good path.

You’re trying to help someone and the case once your own children who you would do anything for them and they’re on a path of hurting themselves, harming themselves and you’re trying to tell them look it’s for your own good. I want you to think about the consequences of your actions.

When someone can’t hear your advice just let them know that you’re going to love them through their stubbornness.  I love you, and I’m going to pray for you and I’m here for you. The door is open.

I’m telling you something that hopefully will one day come back to you.

What will make your advice ugly is when you have ego in it, when it’s condescending, when it doesn’t,… maybe somewhere in there is some Noble intention but in the midst.. of your Noble intention is being lost. The ugliness of your words, right….

For both of these people; both the Giving that sincere advice and the one listening to that sincere advice, right the ego has to be removed from the picture and you’ve got to consider whether if you’re giving advice to someone, sincere advice to someone out of the love of Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala and out of wanting good for them.

Reflect Over The Beauty Of Surah An-Nasr To Enter The Fold Of Islam Firmly~ Ustad Asim Khan

Allah subhanaw Taala sends His help; no doubt, be convinced, but on His terms and on the timeline that He sees is appropriate and befitting and that timeline may be immediate, it may be tomorrow, it may Maybe in the distant future.

Always maintain conviction in your heart that Allah will help you. If you are faithful, if you are devoted to Allah then for sure His victory and His help will arrive but that will come at a time that Allah chooses not when you choose.

It teaches us that our desire and our wish for Humanity are not to conquer them. But rather to call them and to invite them and to see them join us in the worship of Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala and not to die on disbelief and to end up in the hellfire….

We must adopt that lifestyle where we say Islam is not just for me and my family but it is for everyone and I will call everyone up to my ability and up to my potential.

Bismillah Hir Rahman Nir Raheem
In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious and The Most Merciful

إِذَا جَاءَ نَصْرُ اللَّهِ وَالْفَتْحُ

Iza jaaa’a nasrul-laahi walfath
1. When the victory of Allah has come and the conquest,

وَرَأَيْتَ النَّاسَ يَدْخُلُونَ فِي دِينِ اللَّهِ أَفْوَاجًا

Wa ra-aitan naasa yadkhuloona fee deenil laahi afwajaa
2. And you see the people entering into the religion of Allah in multitudes,

Desperate Help Of Allah’s Mercy With Powerful Dhikr From Depression | Mufti Menk

We will go through sadness, anxiety and so much more in terms of difficulty hardship. The days will not be the same. We are just human beings….

Allah has Never Promised You material things but He has promised to contentment and happiness.

Some of the happiest people have very little when it comes to material belongings, but they have the ownership of something that is very great. That is the relationship with Allah and Allah is the owner of the heart. Allah will give it calmness.

Many people follow the trends of this world, and these Trends are sometimes leading to anxiety, trends of the world to expose ourselves…..

We need to live up to a standard of someone else and we cannot do that so we become depressed.

Trends of the world to show off what you have, when you show off what you have you will never have as much as others. So you will be led to depression and anxiety and stress and so much more.

Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala says if you want to compete with someone compete with them in good deeds, in helping others in being the best person in your Character your conduct and so on.

Allah liberates you from the clutches from the enslavement of materialistic competition. Allah truly liberates you by saying be excited with what we’ve given you, be happy with the condition we have kept you in.

Don’t compare yourself with those who have more materially, your heart will be absolutely content. subhanallah wa bihamdihi subhanallahil adzim

Anas ibn Maalik (may Allah be pleased with him) said, that the messenger of Allah (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) used to profusely say:

يَا مُقَلِّبَ الْقُلُوبِ ثَبِّتْ قَلْبِي عَلَى دِينِكَ

yaa mu-qallibal quloob thab-bit qalbee ‘alaa deenik
“O turner of hearts, keep my heart firm upon Your religion.”

We all want Paradise, but when we get there on the Day of Judgment will the prophet peace be upon him recognize us?  That’s a question; I want you to ask yourselves.

يَا حَيُّ يَا قَـيُّومُ
بِرَحْمَتِكَ أَسْتَغِيثُ
أَصْلِحْ لِي شَأْنِي كُلَّهُ
وَلَا تَكِلْنِي إِلَى نَفْسِي طَرْفَةَ عَيْنٍ

Yaa Hayyu yaa Qayyoomu
(O Ever Living, O Ever Sustaining)
bi rahmatika astagheeth
(in Your mercy I seek relief)
aslih lee sha’nee kullahu
(rectify for me all of my affairs)
wa laa takilnee ilaa nafsee tarfata ‛ayn
(and do not leave me to myself even for the blink of an eye).
[Al-Haakim No# 2000 and he graded it authentic]

Who Used To Control Over The Jinn World And The Knowledge Of Unseen By Jinn | Shaykh Hasan Ali

The word jinn in Arabic comes from a root word jim noon nun (jann) which means something that is hidden.

Allah has given us as a set rule is that we both going to exist in this world, coexist in this world, but they’re going to be able to see us and themselves, but we don’t see them. now the jinn, though They see us They don’t see the angels.

The Angelic world has been created from light. The jinns have been created from fire. Our Essence comes from clay, from water and from other elements.

King Solomon/ prophet Suleiman (A.S) was given the power over jinns. He was the only human being that had the authority given by Allah to control jinns.

jinns don’t know the Unseen World. and if jinn is telling you about the Unseen World then he’s giving you stories

 

The Blessing Of Staying Away From Haram Income And Relationship~Mufti Menk

In verse number 94 (surah-Al-Ma’idah), Allah loves it when we stay away from things for His sake.

 

Only to test you Allah allows certain things He has prohibited to be accessible to you and He makes it easy for you to do achieve that but you stay away for His sake.

When a person is married for the sake of their spouse. They would sometimes stay away from adultery Etc. But if you were to do it for the sake of Allah, it is far broader and you will achieve the happiness of your spouse too subhanallah….

Even if the person comes to you and really asks you to commit the sin with them, if you were to abstain bearing Allah in mind, aren’t you on a Higher level? You achieve the Comfort.

When adultery is very easy to commit and you still stay away from it. You’ve arrived at a different level in your relationship with Allah.

When things are prohibited, sometimes Allah might test you by making it accessible; it is so tempting to earn money in the wrong way. Allah says, do you prefer me or you prefer the money that is earned in a wrong..

Why? SubhanAllah, it’s up to you to prove yourself to Allah.

So those who stay away they have the correct relationship with Allah.
