      I agree,babies and kids are the best Masha ' Allah. So innocent and adorable when their young espec and growing up,but they grow up so quick! Masha ' Allah.
      i knew that, My point was why "Muslims" are resorting to these sort of entertainment that aren't even satisfying. It doesn't feed the soul, just keep your eager uselessly for more, like an addiction.

          Sorry I misunderstood, I see now. Good point. My personal answer is I was brought up watching quite a bit of Tv and i didnt know it was haram till about a year ago. But it was easily given up Alhamdulillah, and part of it is the very reason that u said, it doesnt feed the soul in any way. Its just artificial.
          And with Him are the keys of the Ghayb (all that is hidden), none knows them but He. And He knows whatever there is in the land and in the sea; not a leaf falls, but He knows it. There is not a grain in the darkness of the earth nor anything fresh or dry, but is written in a Clear Record�

            Yesterday I was speaking to a wonderful sister and although I didn't know her before, the good advice I got from her and what I benefited from her, I didn't get from all of the time I have spent with my friends, friends I've known for a long time. May Allah reward that sister, ameen.

            I was motivated to do better as a Muslim because of her and I realized that even though a lot of times we take too lightly the advice of the Prophet (Saw) to befriend good people and be around them, wallahi it's really beneficial to have them. It's so nice having someone advise you like a real sister and make duaa for you rather than someone trying to convince you to go to the coffee shop and to 'just pray later.' Big difference wallah.

            I realized that if I'm spending time with people who take too lightly the commands of Allah (swt) it lowers my own iman which is totally not worth the dunya price of temporary social satisfaction.

            Thee do we worship, and Thine aid we seek.

              I agree with you sister. Thats true, its been said, [in the essence of things] ...."tell me who his friends are and i will tell you who he is......" This one friend of mine, SUBHANALLAH may ALLAH increase him in guidance and Knowledge , all we try to talk about is AKHIRA, JANNAH....ect.

              ALHAMDULLILAHI RABBIL ALEMIN.

                Minor sins. If anyone can post the hadith thatd be great. there's one comparing minor sins to little twigs piling up in a fire.

                And not praying

                Starting something good and stopping (from personal experience)
                Allah sent down his tranquillity upon him and supported him with angels you did not see and made the word of those who disbelieved the lowest, while the word of Allah - that is the highest. And Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.

                  In my experience, and that of many others I'm sure, not controlling the tongue is one of the biggest ways to destroy our eeman.

                  Whether that be lying, arguing, backbiting, idle chat and just talking too much without any purpose - these things will damage your eeman in a huge way.

                  The best method is to keep to silence as much as possible, only speak when necessary, and of course when you do speak then make your words good and pure. Your eeman will, in sha Allah, see a big increase.

                      As someone mentioned earlier, wasting of time is a major factor in lowering of imaan

                      Music, movies and many other things come under this category so lets try to use our time more in the remembrance of Allah insha Allah before its too late
                      Believe
                      there is
                      good in the world

                        Overeating.
                        Neglecting cleanliness.
                        Allah is so Great and Merciful that although we continue to disobey Him, He still awaits for our repentance so that He may forgive us.

                          accumulating sins and underestimating it =KILLER

                          reading materials that challenge your aqeedah or filled with kufr, but sugarcoated in beautiful words and masked as wisdom = POISON

                          my personal weak spot : atheism and nihilism

                          personally I'm indifferent to music, so it doesn't affect me at all.

                            How do you attain the mood to not waste time? I'm stuck trying to find the answer. Where jobs, studies etc come in, hobbies become a neccessity.

                              Nothing if you are a Maturidi.
