Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmathullahi wa barakathuhu

This is my first ever attempt to write a blog on Islam. I have chosen the name from the Quran kareem for this blog, it is the name of the surah, Al-Fussilath – meaning ‘Explained in detail’.

Insha allah, i will try to keep my blog post short and sweet, however if i am wrong you can correct me and if i am good at it, please do not praise in the blog, just make dua for me.

Jazakallahu qair

Ameen

Beauty of your Wife!!

Assalaamualaikum!!

We are living at hard times, it is very hard to lower the gaze especially when a women dresses up and wears make up to get your attention…!! We are surrounded by many evils. Whereas a pious lady is modest and guards herself but still looks awesome in front of Allah SWT and has the respect in front of decent men.

But what do you look in the girl you are staring at?? the so called beauty? the artificial one? really???

Yeah, Allah has put it inside us.

Surah 3, verse 14

“Beautified for people is the love of that which they desire – of women and sons, heaped-up sums of gold and silver, fine branded horses, and cattle and tilled land. That is the enjoyment of worldly life, but Allah has with Him the best return.”

Desire of women is put inside us, no matter what you do it will be there. But acting upon your desire has disastrous consequences. While fasting in ramadhan, you will feel hungry – Feeling hungry isnt a sin, but if you act on the desire and have food, then you are in sin. You and i will have the desire for women, but if you act on it, then you sin.

So, how do you stop staring at a beautiful women…  Lower you gaze and remember the ayah mentioned above – these are just an enjoyment for worldly life but allah has with him the best return.

Save yourself from it and desire for the best which you will get in aaqirah. Get married! Love your wife for the sake of allah SWT

Upon the authority of Anas Ibn Malik – radiallaahu ‘anhu – who said that the Messenger of Allah – sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam – said:

“..If a woman from the women of Jannah were to appear in this world, that which is between (the heavens and the earth) would be filled with her (beautiful) fragrance. And they would illuminate that which is between the heavens and the earth..The scarf that is on her head is better than the world and that which is upon it!”

Imagine – You will enter paradise and you will be able to spot your home better than your home in this world. The House of jannah is made up of gold brick and silver brick. When you enter jannah and go towards your house in jannah, you will freeze at a point after looking at the beauty of your wife who will be standing there….

Staring and contemplating at her beauty alone for 40 Years.. Subhanallah…

40 seconds of staring at the worldy women isnt a good deal to trade instead of 40 years of contemplation of beauty in Jannah

A Pious wife can take you to Jannah but yeah you should be pious too, coz its a trend nowadays to look for a pious girl for marriage and we continue to stray away from the straight path.

May allah grant us the understanding. Ameen ya rabb!!

You can commit sins..!

Assalaamualaikum…!!

Once a man came to Ibrahim bin Adham and said: “I commit many sins, please tell me a cure for sins.”

Therefore, telling him the first advice for sins, Ibrahim bin Adham said: “When you have a firm intention to commit sin, give up eating the sustenance of Allah.”

Amazed by listening to it, the man said: “What kind of advice you are giving to me! How is it possible! Only Allah is the provider of sustenance? How will I manage to eat anything ? ”

Ibrahim bin Adham answered: “See! How bad it is to disobey the One whose sustenance you are eating ! ”

Giving the second advice, Ibrahim bin Adham said: “When you have made the intention of committing sins, get out of Allah’s land ! ”

“How is this possible ? , exclaimed the man. “North, south, east, west, right, left, up, down–wherever I go, I will find the land of Allah. It is impossible to get out of His kingdom.

”Ibrahim bin Adham said: “See! How bad it is to disobey the One on whose land you are living ! ”

Then, giving the third advice, Ibrahim bin Adham said: “When you have made a firm intention to commit sin, hide yourself at such a place where Allah may not see you and then commit sin over there.”

The man said astonishingly: “How is it possible for anyone to hide himself from Allah ? He is aware of even the state of our hearts ! ”

Ibrahim bin Adham replied: “See! How bad it is for you to disobey Allah despite believing Him being Sami’ (the One who is All-Hearing) and Basir’ (the One who is Allseeing); you are saying for sure that He is seeing you all the time; even then, you are always committing sins ! ”

Then, giving the fourth advice, Ibrahim bin Adham said: “When the angel of death comes to seize your soul, tell him to give you some grace so that you may offer 2 rakah and repent. ”

The man said, “I don’t possess such authority; nobody will listen to me? The time of death is already fixed and I will not get even a second’s grace. ”

 Ibrahim bin Adham said: “If you know you are powerless and cannot get grace to repent, why don’t you value the time you have right now and repent before the arrival of the angel of death? ”

Then, giving the fifth advice, Ibrahim bin Adham said: “After your death, when Munkar and Nakir enter your grave, turn them out of your grave.

The man replied, “What are you saying? How can I turn them out? What strength do I have ? ”

He said: “If you cannot turn the angels out, why don’t you prepare to answer their questions ? ”

Then, giving the sixth advice, Ibrahim bin Adham said: “If you are ordered to go to Hell on the Day of Judgement, refuse to go.

The man said, “I will be dragged and thrown into Hell ! ”

Ibrahim bin Adham said: “If your state is such that you cannot give up eating Allah’s sustenance, you cannot get out of His land either, you cannot hide yourself from Him, you cannot get any grace to repent, you cannot turn Munkar and Nakir out of your grave too and you cannot save yourself from the punishment of Hell, then you should give up sins so that you can protect yourself from all these troubles.

the man wept and realized what he was asking/doing, he repented instead of continuing to sin…

and yeah you can continue sinning when you assure these six things.

This is first and foremost an advice for myself, may allah protect our emaan. Aameen

Who can Love you more than him….. !!!

Assalamualaikum

Bismillahirrahman nirraheem

I can never be able to communicate the message the way bro nouman ali khan did, but let me try, allah is the one who gives and takes life, may allah give life to this message… aameen.

Lecture was on surah ar rahman, but I will share about 10% of what I captured today, in my own language till the video gets published..

Ar-rahmaan….. it is translated in english as ‘The most merciful’…. but in english, the word mercy is used when you spare someone when you had the right to get angry.

For example, you are driving your car while on headphones and the police stops your vehicle to put penalty for what you did. Suppose you say that you were listening to the surah ‘Ar-rahman’, and the police shows mercy saying ” Leave now but dont repeat”… that is mercy.

Lets see what it means in arabic. It comes from the word rahm, rahm is used to describe the belly/womb of pregnant mother. What does the mother do when she is carrying the baby, she is watchfull and extra careful of whatever she does, usually when we are faced with some physical harm we will cover our head, but this pregnant mother will cover her belly so as to protect the child.

Does the mother see the child ?? No… Does she love the child? Yah, loves so much… but the child is unaware of all that this mom is doing out of love. So the english translation, mercifull doesnt convey the same message as rahm. Mercy – to avoid punishing, but the word rahman has nothing to do with punishment.

Allah is ar-rahmaan, now u get the point? extreme love, the love which he showed to the stubborn quraish. Like the pregnant mother example, allah sees us and loves but we dont see him, but his love is what makes you read this with your eyes, And rahman means something which is happening right now, that means he is always loving us no matter what you do. You go away from allah by disobeying but allah doesnt go away from you. Allah says, you are delicate let me care for you, i love u… all these comprises in the word ar-rahmaan..Subhannallahh.

In arabic, the word also means, extremely merciful and beyond imagination.

Allah loves us, he is aware of what the slaves are going through, he is delicate to our situation.

We think of problems all the time, ask parents about their kids.. he sleeps late, he duznt listen to what we say, he is lazy to do homework, he talks back and the list goes on. But when the child is dead, all they speak about is their greatness, my child was so awesome and was so perfect. We realize when we lose the neemah allah has given.. allah knows our situation better than us, we forget allah is ar-rahmaan…

There is a hole in everyones heart which needs love, if you search love outside you will feel betrayed at the end, only revelation can fill it with love of allah. Allah says his words are the greatest, yet he had sent it down for us in the form of quran kareem.

Daily connection with quran by understanding its meaning will change your life for good, our advice has no power to change, but allahs word can change the hearts. It only can heal the hearts and break the hard hearts!

He is always waiting for his slave to return to him for repentance, his mercy (rahm) prevails over his wrath… ture love is his love. Repent and have connection with quran, jjust a little time understanding the quran will change our heart.

May allah grant us the understanding,  aameen

Will a white cloth save me from sins??

Assalaamualaikum

Sins keep following us or are we following sins???

I am in sha allah deciding to have white cloth with me wherever I go, I will hang a piece of white cloth at my desk, in my bedroom and wherever possible in sha allah. But a white cloth cant do anything without the will of allah swt… I intend it to remind me of the white cloth which I will be wearing,  when everyone will take me to my grave.

In sha allah, when I see it, it must remind me of death, and if I believe in death and its after effects, insha allah I would stay away from sins, in sha allah..

No one will accompany you n me, its the deeds… let the white cloth serve as a reminder…

May allah grant us understanding and make it easier for us to obey him…

Yes… we indeed are one ummah

Allahu akbar, allahu akbar, laa ilaaaha il allahu allahu akbar.. allahu akbar wa lillaahil hamd..

Allah is great and im not, allah is great and im not… there is no one worthy of worship than allah, allah is great and I am not, allah is great and im not and to him belongs praise and gratitude..

Assalaamualaikum

As we are set to celebrate eid, let us remember we are one ummah..

People, especially muslims are suffering under the worst of leaders… if we are one ummah, if we feel the brotherhood,  what will be expected of us? FEEL THE PAIN AND HELP AND SUPPORT THEM, right? But we are entangled in the discussions and debates about petty issues, may allah grant us the understanding.

Yesterday I read a news which had slapped me on my face…. fatwa is being issued that they can eat the meat which is prohibited to stop deaths due to starvation, they have been given the fatwa to eat dog!! Subhanallahh,  and it is also expected in few days that they will be allowed to eat deads meat.

If we cant help them, lets try to motivate the one who can help. Lets make dua for them as we do for us. Shame on us when we dont pray for our ummah and still call us we are one ummah..

May allah grant us the ability to live by what was being told, speech without action is of a hypocrites nature, may allh save us from the deep pit of hell fire.

EID MUBARAK, TAQABBAL ALLAHA MINNA WA MINKUM.

Inna salati wa nusuki wa mahyaya wa mamati lillahi rabbil-alamin

Verily, my prayers, my sacrifice, my life, and my death are for Allah, the Lord of All the Worlds.”(Qur’an 6:162)
