  • Life changes in a second, Thank Allah yours didn't !

    Every second.. Someone somewhere took his last breath, Thank Allah it wasn't you !

    Every second.. Someone somewhere must have lost his father, Thank Allah it wasn't you !

    Every second.. Someone somewhere must have bid farewell to his mom, Thank Allah it wasn't you !

    Every second.. Someone somewhere must have been inflicted with a disease, Thank Allah it wasn't you !

    Every second.. Someone somewhere must have met with an accident, Thank Allah it wasn't you!

    Every second.. Someone somewhere must have been tested with patience, Thank Allah it wasn't you!

    And which of the favours of Allah will you deny? [Surah Rahman]

    • "Have you ever wondered how it would be if we treated our Qur’an the way we treat our cell phones.

      ~ What if we carried it in our bags and browsed it often?
      ~ What if we turned back to get it if we forgot it?
      ~ What if we flipped through it several times a day?
      ~ What if we used it to receive Messages from the Text?
      ~ What if we treated it like we couldn’t live without it?
      ~ What if we gave it to our dear ones as gifts?
      ~ What if we considered it as the number one priority while traveling?
      ~ What if we used it in case of an emergency?


      Think and Reflect !!"

      • “O feet of patience, keep going, for what remains is only a little.

        Remember the sweetness of worship, then the bitterness of striving will become easier for you.”

        • An important piece of wisdom: Refusing to perform a commandment is a greater sin than doing what you have been commanded not to do. The sin of doing what you have been commanded not to do is often due desire and need, while the sin of refusing to perform a commandment often originates from arrogance and self-glorification.

          Sahl bin ʿAbd-Allāh said: “Abandonment of carrying out commandments is greater in the sight of God than committing prohibited acts, for Adam was prohibited from eating from the tree but he did so and God forgave him, while Satan was commanded to prostrate to Adam and he refused to do so and God did not forgive him.”

            وَاقْصِدْ فِي مَشْيِكَ وَاغْضُضْ مِن صَوْتِكَ ۚ إِنَّ أَنكَرَ الْأَصْوَاتِ لَصَوْتُ الْحَمِيرِ - 31:19

            And be moderate in your pace and lower your voice; indeed, the most disagreeable of sounds is the voice of donkeys."


            أَلَمْ تَرَوْا أَنَّ اللَّهَ سَخَّرَ لَكُم مَّا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَأَسْبَغَ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعَمَهُ ظَاهِرَةً وَبَاطِنَةً ۗ وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَن يُجَادِلُ فِي اللَّهِ بِغَيْرِ عِلْمٍ وَلَا هُدًى وَلَا كِتَابٍ مُّنِيرٍ - 31:20

            Do you not see that Allah has made subject to you whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth and amply bestowed upon you His favors, [both] apparent and unapparent? But of the people is he who disputes about Allah without knowledge or guidance or an enlightening Book [from Him].

              • Abdullah ibn Amr reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, "There are two practices that will admit a Muslim into Paradise if he preserves them both. They are easy although there are few who practice them. It is to glorify Allah ten times, to praise Allah ten times, and to exalt Allah ten times at the end of every prayer, for it is one hundred and fifty upon the tongue but one thousand five hundred upon the scale.

                And it is to glorify Allah thirty three times, to praise Allah thirty three times, and to exalt Allah thirty four times before going to sleep, for it is one hundred upon the tongue and one thousand upon the scale. Which one of you could commit two thousand five hundred sins in a day
                ?" They said, "O Messenger of Allah, how are they easy but few practice them?" The Prophet said, "Satan comes to one of you during prayer and incites him to remember a need, so he leaves the prayer without saying them. And Satan comes to him when he goes to bed and lulls him to sleep without saying them."

                Source: Musnad Aḥmad 6871

                Note for new Muslims or those who don't know how to say these words: Glorifying Allah means to say SubhanAllah, Praising Allah means to say Alhamdulilah and Exalting Allah is to say Allahu Akbar.

                    If a person is sincere towards Allah in all his affairs, Allah will give him more than He gives to others, and this sincerity results from true love of Allah and true trust in Him. So the most sincere of people is the one who loves Allah most and puts the most trust in Him.

                      • The Prophet once asked his Companions, “Do you know who the bankrupt is?”
                        The Companions said, “A bankrupt is the one who has neither dirham (money) nor wealth.”

                        The prophet (pbuh) said:

                        “The bankrupt among my Ummah is he who would come on the Day of Judgment with prayers, fasting, and zakah; but he had offended one person, slandered another, devoured others’ wealth, shed the blood of this person, and beat that person.
                        Each one of these people would be given some of the wrongdoer’s good deeds.
                        If his good deeds fall short of settling the account, then their sins will be taken from their accounts and thrown into his account, and he would be thrown in the Hellfire. (Muslim)

                          • “I wonder at you! Allah draws near to you though He is in no need for you, whereas you are arrogant with Him though you are in need of Him. When you are far He draws you near to Him and when you are negligent, He reminds you. He did not favour any other creation over you, but nevertheless you still favour everything over Him! Lower the head of your regret before the commencement of the day at which you are blamed because then you will not have the face to answer any of that.” [Kitaab Al-Lataa’if Fil- ibn qayyim
