jumu’ah mubarak everyone!
Rem me, my family and foreveramessup in your special duas 😉
I sat there once salma had left trying to take in what she’d just told me….
Was my best friend really going to accept goolams proposal?I’m honestly so proud of her for not being so narrow minded and for allowing him the opportunity to change his life….
Well just incase you’re wondering what the aalims discussed with her…
Well you see..goolam WAS gay at one stage….yes his family did find out..but unlike many other people who justify their actions and don’t give a damn about what’s right and wrong…goolam did!..
He regretted deeply and sought guidance from the wise ulama(scholars) of his locality….
So no his family was not merely getting him married off as the rumours had it…they were not dumping their problems on anyone else…it was goolams decision to find a good wife, one with islamic morals that can help him get closer to Allah….
He’s tried for quite some time and has been straight for the past 2 years now…and he regrets deeply…the aalim from rustenburg mentioned that in these 2 years, there hasn’t been a single day that goolam has ever missed a single salaah with jama’ah(congregation)…
He spends any extra time trying to study deen and has also taken to doing hifz(memorising) of the holy quraan….
So the fact that he came to see salma wearing a kurta wasn’t actually a show….as we wrongly accused him of (hide)…but that has become his daily dressing….
As for his facebook pics etc that we seen….they asked salma to check when the was the last time it was actually updated….and that was 2 years ago…he gave up facebook, his evil habit and has chosen the path of Allah and his beloved rasool…..can we actually say that we are better than him?
As far as I remember hearing an aalim mention oneday….that when a person changes his evil ways and turns to Allah..not only is he fogiven by Allah but his evil actions are turned into good for him…and on the day of qiyaamah when this person asks for who are all these good written..it will be said to him that these are infact your evil actions that you have repented from and have now turned into good for you…
Here we were..judging this poor soul who could be more dearer in the sight of Allah because of his repentance while we are rotting away in sin….
Imagine if we were still living in the time of the bani israaeel?their every sin was engraved on their front door for everone to see….
We are so lucky that Allah has hidden our sins…and the wisdom behind that is that Allah wants us to repent and change our evil ways before we are disgraced for the sins we commit….
So salma asked for 3 more days to make up her mind…she continued her istikhaara and came over to tell me that she was going to give her answer as yes…and also to ask my opinion…
As much as I wanted her to be with aqeel…..Allah knows best and I think she’s making the right decision by going against what society would want and doing this solely to please Allah….how can Allah not give her barakah in her life…?
