    Masha'ALLAH at this let's go right back to BASICS!

    Reminder 127- Struggling for Acceptance


    Coming to Islam was difficult for me. I had long sensed the truth in principles like Tawheed, the ‘Oneness’ of God, and in the veracity of the Holy Qur’an. Yet I was a product of my environment and therefore privileged, selfish, and self-absorbed. I thought only of the things I would lose when I converted: friends, love affairs, respect from colleagues, and of course reading a book in the dark corner of a bar while nursing a cold beer on a hot day. These things were part of what I based my identity on, so I felt I would be losing myself if and when I became Muslim.

    Somewhere inside this bundle of self-absorption focusing on loss was the very real fear that even when I did declare myself a Muslim, I would never live up to others’ expectations. After all, the group of Muslim friends I was blessed with seemed to shoulder their responsibilities with no effort at all. I felt I could never project the dignity and self-assurance they did when going into a masjid. Most of all, I felt like I couldn’t live up to what Allah subhanahu wa ta`la (exalted is He) expected of me.

          Only 7 there the rest are on the link - when my reminders are not colourful, underlined, numbered etc it's because I'm using my mobile to post and it's too tricky to do all the nice edits (=.

            Reminder 130

            Don't know about others but right now im feeling like ive got a lot on my plate. Ramadan's gone Shawwal is over [fasting done] and where back to the whims and ways of everyday life. Things have been challenging lately and when your feeling quite low and like nothing can make you happy it's hard to get some focus in your life even though we know our sole purpose, of course is to worship Allah .

            Anyway as well as doing a bit of off loading i thought it would be nice to have a bit of inspiration and to help kindle some hope and happiness back into things which may be helpful for others too (=

            Allah say in the Holy Quran :

            And when My servants ask you, [O Muhammad], concerning Me - indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me. So let them respond to Me [by obedience] and believe in Me that they may be [rightly] guided. [2:186]

            This is a really important verse for us all because Allah reminds us that we need to be obedient to him at all times '' So let them respond to Me [by obedience]'' and remember Him through thick and thin -Allah is managing things for us all the time so we should thank him for his constant care of us and when he decides to let something inflict us we should remember to turn back to Him as He will always be listening.

            Where tears are shed divine mercy is shown -RUMI

            We hear a lot about the verse of 2:216 where Allah says that we might dislike something which is good for us and like something which is bad for us. We have to remember that whatever happens in our life is a test -the people we meet the experiences we have etc. These are all opportunities to turn back to Allah azwajjal and if it was never meant to happen to us it would not have come to pass, and if it has happened, nothing we could have done would have turned it away from us.

            So

              Reminder 131

              For us single'uns =p the thought of marriage , proposals weddings, engagements, friends getting hitched when you're still very single getting to you? Your knight or princess is not even on the horizon..? Tough stuff eh?

              Hook up with Allah, and Allah will hook you up

              Before I got married, I was given unsolicited advice on how to change in order to make myself “more appealing” to brothers. Sisters would voluntarily tell me I should be more outgoing when with men, dress more attractively to get their attention and stop being as involved with Islamic activism so I would not scare them away.
              Since when is our purpose in life marriage? Where in the Qur’an does Allah ask us to change our personalities, dress style and tone down our activism in hopes of getting hitched? Nevertheless, with marriage being such a huge concern in our community, many face the temptation to change their values to find a spouse.

              Here’s an idea: Instead of working to please a potential suitor, perhaps we should first seek to please Allah, the One who sows the seed of love in our hearts and can bless us with our dream husband or dream wife.

              Instead of looking for marriage at every event, let’s look for marriage in our relationship with al-Wahhab, the Giver of All. Let’s be honest. We are talking about al-Mujeeb, the Responder to Prayer. Those are amongst the Names of Allah! Allah gives and He answers!

              If you are an individual who struggles to lower your gaze and protect your eyes, heart, tongue and body from falling into the haram, don’t you know that Allah will indeed reward you?

              Every time you glance up and see someone you wish you could be with, turn away and in that moment ask Allah to bless you with a spouse who will be the sweetness of your eyes. Would not Allah listen to and accept your supplication to Him? How could Allah possibly not accept the supplication of His adamant worshipper who is painfully struggling to maintain his or her modesty and guard his or her chastity? The Prophet ﷺ has encouraged us to “Ask and you will be given…” (at-Tirmithi) Allah will give you! How could He not when you are striving only for His Sake?

              In those moments in the last third of the night, in those two rakahs which you make out of pure frustration of your situation, weeping, asking Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala – exalted is He) to answer you – do you not think Allah the Rabb al-`alameen (Lord of the Worlds) will not respond to you? Allahu Akbar (God is the Greatest), this is Allah! Without doubt Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) is going to answer you!

                Small reminder today inshaallah

                May our days be filled with productivity and striving to make the world a better place, inshAllah! In the meantime, some food for thought: "Yearning for Allah and His meeting is like the gentle breeze blowing upon the heart, extinguishing the blaze of the Dunya. Whosoever caused his heart to settle with his Lord shall be in a state, calm and tranquil, and whosoever sent it amongst the people shall be disturbed and excessively perturbed." -Ibn Qayyum Al Jawziyyah
