Primary purpose of our hearts is to love Allaah
When you lose something you try to improve your life
Go back and check how to improve love for Allaah.
Ten practical ways to inculcate love for Allaah
Muhaasabah – to reflect on life
1. do zikr abundantly – da more u luv some1 da mor u remembr them
2. Tilaawat of quraan – read and ponder
If peoples hearts were not darkened with sin, they would enjoy reading the quraan – Hazrat Usman
3 Nawaafil – increase your nawaafil
Giving of Sadqah – giving of sadaqah reflects the truth of our Imaan – comes from word Sidq – truth
Sneak in extra ibaadat (nawafil) anytime in your day. Find time, make time for this extra relationship
4. Pick Allaah above all else – deciding to choose between Allaah or someone else. Between deen and makhlooq, between Aakhira or Dunya, whichever situation pick Allaah above all else.
In our functions of life we forget our purpose of life. Our purpose of life is to worship Allaah.
Allaah will make qadr when you choose Him above all else.
And love of Allaah will enter your heart.
When you pick Allaah, you will get Allaah plus more.
5 – reflect on names and sifaat of Allaah Ta’aala
When you know meaning of names of Allaah, you will begin to love Allaah. Read the name of Allaah and ponder its meaning. Choose one name a day and reflect on it.
6 – to witness / reflect on all the Ni’mats Allaah has given us. All the zaahiri and baatini nimats. Look at what you have and not what you don’t have.
When you make shukr for what Allaah has given you and Allaah will increase you. Positive thinking. You can have problems without worries, and you can have worries with no problem.
Relationship with Allaah, is much more intimate than a relationship with a spouse.
7 – when your heart is broken, at that point your heart is softened. “Allaah is with those people’s hearts who have been broken”. When you are crying, or hurt talk to Allaah. When you are vulnerable, call onto Allaah, then Allaah’s love comes pouring down
Make duaa to Allaah when you are in sajdah, and when you are broken hearted then it is Noorun alaa Noor
8- be alone with Allaah – Khalwa (alone time / one on one time with Allaah – Me time with Allaah) try for tahajjud – Disconnect from the world, to reconnect with Allaah. Even if its 2 minuts
9 – stop obstacles that take us away from relationship with Allaah. any wrong type of love in our hearts takes us away from the love of Allaah. if you want love of Allaah to enter our hearts, we have to empty our hearts with those things that take away the mercy of Allaah from our hearts. Purify hearts from negativity, Allaah’s love will never enter our hearts if it is filled with
10 – spend time with Auliya of Allaah. Those people who have the love of Allaah in their hearts. Those who are true in all aspects of their life. Whether in front of you or away from you. The company of a person who loves Allaah has a beautiful affect on our hearts and brings us closer to Allaah. Our company is very important. Keep company with those who love Allaah to achieve the love of Allaah.

Pain has it’s purpose. It is a teacher of the greatest lesson life can bring. It is a reminder of the imperfect nature of this life and it is a means by which many of us return to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’Allah.

Every Friday afternoon, after the Jummah prayers, the Imam and his eleven year old son would go out into their town and hand out “PATH TO PARADISE” and other Islamic literature.
This particular and fortunate Friday afternoon, as the time came for the Imam and his son to go to the streets with their booklets, it was very cold outside, as well as pouring rain.
The boy bundled up in his warmest and driest clothes and said, ‘
OK, dad, I’m ready!’His dad asked, ‘Ready for what?’ ‘Dad, it’s time we go out and distribute these Islamic books.
‘Dad responds, ‘Son, it’s very cold outside and it’s pouring with rain.’The boy gives his dad a surprised look, asking, ‘But Dad, aren’t people still going to hell, even though it’s raining?
‘Dad answers, ‘Son, I am not going out in this weather.’Despondently, the boy asks, ‘Dad, can I go Please?’
His father hesitated for a moment then said, ‘Son, you can go. Here are the booklets. Be careful okay son.”
Thanks, Dad!’And with that, he was off and out into the rain.
This eleven year old boy walked the streets of the town going door to door and handing everybody he met in the street a pamphlet or a booklet.
After two hours of walking in the rain, he was soaking, bone-chilled wet and down to his VERY LAST BOOKLET.
He stopped on a corner and looked for someone to hand a booklet to, but the streets were now totally deserted.
Then he turned toward the first home he saw and started up the sidewalk to the front door and rang the door bell.
He rang the bell, but nobody answered..He rang it again and again, but still no one answered. He waited but still no answer.
Finally, he turned to leave, but something stopped him. Again, he turned to the door and rang the bell and knocked loudly on the door with his fist. He waited, something holding him there on the front porch!
He rang again and this time the door slowly opened.
Standing in the doorway was a very sad-looking elderly lady.
She softly asked, ‘What can I do for you, son?’
With radiant eyes and a smile that lit up her world, this little boy said, ‘Ma’am, I’m sorry if I disturbed you, but I just want to tell you that ALLAH REALLY LOVES AND CARES FOR YOU and I came to give you my very last booklet which will tell you all about God, the real purpose of creation, and how to achieve His pleasure.’
With that, he handed her his last booklet and turned to leave.She called to him as he departed. ‘Thank you, son! And God Bless You!’
The following week on Friday afternoon after Jumma prayers, the Imam was giving some lectures. As he always did in this westn city, he concluded the lecture, he asked,
‘Does anybody have questions or want to say anything?
‘Slowly, in the back row among the ladies, an elderly lady’s voice was heard over the speaker. ‘No one in this gathering knew her.
She started to speak…”I’ve never been here before. You see, before last Friday I was not a Muslim, and never thought I could ever be.
My husband died few years ago, leaving me totally alone in this world.. Last Friday, being a particularly cold and rainy day, I was contemplating suicide as i had no hope left.So I took a rope and a chair and ascended the stairway into the attic of my home..
I fastened the rope securely to a rafter in the roof then stood on the chair and fastened the other end of the rope around my neck. Standing on that chair, so lonely and broken-hearted I was about to leap off, when suddenly the loud ringing of my doorbell downstairs startled me.
I thought, I’ll wait a minute, and whoever it is will go away.I waited and waited, but the ringing doorbell seemed to get louder and more insistent, and then the person ringing also started knocking loudly….I thought to myself again, ‘Who on earth could this be? Nobody ever rings my bell or comes to see me.’
I loosened the rope from my neck and started for the front door, all the while the bell rang louder and louder. When I opened the door and looked I could hardly believe my eyes, for there on my front porch was the most radiant and angelic little boy I had ever seen in my life. His SMILE, oh, I could never describe it to you!
The words that came from his mouth caused my heart that had long been dead TO LEAP TO LIFE as he exclaimed with a cherub-like voice, ‘Ma’am, I just came to tell you that ALLAH REALLY LOVES AND CARES FOR YOU!
‘Then he gave me this booklet, Path To Paradise that I now hold in my hand. As the little angel disappeared back out into the cold and rain, I closed my door and read slowly every word of this book. Then I went up to my attic to get my rope and chair. I wouldn’t be needing them any more.
You see?
I am now a Happy Vicegerent of the One True Allah. Since the address of your congregation was stamped on the back of this booklet, I have come here to personally say THANK YOU to Allah’s little angel who came just in the nick of time and by so doing, spared my soul from an eternity in hell.
‘”There was not a dry eye in the masjid.
The shouts of TAKBIR…ALLAH AKBAR.. rented the air.
Imam-Dad descended from the pulpit to the front row where the little angel was seated….He took his son in his arms and sobbed uncontrollably.
Probably no jama’at has had a more glorious moment, and probably this universe has never seen a father that was more filled with love and honour for his son… Except for One. This very one…

How To complete the QURAN in Ramadan:
The Qur’an has 600 pages approx.. If you divide it on 30 days, that’s 20 pages a day. You see, that’s difficult to do right? But, if you divide it on the 5 prayers a day, it gets easier:
*If you read 4 pages after every salah in ramadan, then you’ve completed the Qur’an.
*If you want to complete the Qur’an twice, you read 4 pages before and after every salah.

Everyone projects the image of friendship, but true friendship is that friendship which is established for the Pleasure of Allah. A true friend is one who takes no offence when a weakness of his is pointed out. And he too does not hesitate to point out the friend�s weakness and assist him in rectifying it.
– Moulana Yunus Patel saheb

The face of the one who sincerely loves Allah glows with spiritual radiance of Love. When some of the rulers from the Successors (Tabi’in) sent a delegation to collect the jizya (tax) from the disbelievers, the latter refused to pay. The officials asked, “Why do you refuse to pay us when you used to pay our forefather?” the disbelievers replied,
“When your forefathers used to come, their clothes were old and torn, their hair was disheveld, and their eyes were streaked with red due to worshipping throughout the night. Yet their faces were so awe-inspiring that we were able to raise our eyes toward them. Your characteristics are not like theirs, nor will be as just. Be Gone, we will not give you anything.”
– Shaykh Zulfiqar Ahmad

If it is not truthful and not helpful, don’t say it. If it is truthful and not helpful, don’t say it. If it is not truthful and helpful, don’t say it. If it is truthful and helpful, wait for the right time.

The one who admonishes his brother secretly, he has advised sincerely and has honored him. If he does it outwardly (among others) then he has dishonored and shamed him.
– Imam ash-Shafi (rahimullah)

It is mentioned that a person once came to Ali ibn abi Talib (radiAllahu anhu) and questioned him regarding fate. He replied, “raise one foot”, and after doing as he was told, Ali ibn abi Talib (radiAllahu anhu) said, “now raise the other”, which he was obviously not able to do so.
The lesson was that some things we have control over, although Allah has knowledge of that also, but some things we have no control over. Taqdeer (destiny).
Similarly, we can say that our partners are written for us but we have some level of choice.

The chains of habit are too weak to be felt until they are too strong to be broken.

Put aside your pride,
Set down your arrogance,

Say the truth even if it may be bitter.

Every drop of sweat
and every breath we take in life,
if not taken for the sake of Allah,

Remembrance of Allah is certain knowledge of one’s belief (‘ilm al-iman), immunity from hypocrisy (baraa’at min al-nifaaq), a fortress against Shaytan (Husn min al-shaytaan), and a guarded refuge from the fire (Hirz min al-naar).

When the world pushes you to your knees, your are in the perfect position to pray.

 
Ease [yusr] and hardship [‘usr] are the feathers that give strength to the wings of your faith [iman], so that your heart and your innermost being [sirr] can use them to fly to the door of your Lord (Almighty and Glorious is He).

If Allah brings you to it, He will bring you through it.

 
Tawakkul: Make Du’a, Do your best, And leave the Rest To Allah.

 
Be yourself beautiful, and you will find the world full of beauty.

 
Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal (rahimullah) was asked about the correct meaning of this hadith:
‘When you hear something form or about your brother, ascribe to it the best interpretation until you can no longer do so.’
He replied, Find an excuse for him by saying, “Maybe he said this, or maybe he meant such and such.”

 
If the first inward thought is not warded off, it will generate a desire, then the desire will generate a wish, and the wish will generate an intention, and the intention will generate the action, and the action will result in ruin and divine wrath. So evil must be cut off at its root, which is when it is simply a thought that crosses the mind, from which all the other things follow on.
– Imam abu Hamid al-Ghazzali
[Ihyaa Uloom al-Deen, 6/17]

 
The World is three days: As for yesterday, it has vanished, along with all that was in it. As for tomorrow, you may never see it. As for today, it is yours, so work in it.

Whoever follows patience, success will follow him.

 
As there is no darkness in the moonlight. So is Mustafa (Muhammad), the well wisher, bright.

Suffering is a gift. In it is hidden mercy. – Jalaluddin al-Rumi

 
A friend cannot be considered a friend until he is tested in three occasions: in time of need, behind your back, and after your death.

Stingyness has nothing to do with how much money you have. Neither does generosity. Its about how much heart you’ve got.

 
Better to avoid the poison altogether than to try to heal from the damage it causes.

 
When someone criticises or disagrees with you, a small ant of hatred and antagonism is born in your heart. If you do not squash that ant at once, it might grow into a snake, or even a dragon.
– Jalaluddin al-Rumi

Whoever is offered an apology from a fellow Muslim should accept it unless he knows that the person apologizing is being dishonest.
– Muhammad (salAllahu alayhi wasalam)
[Mishkat al Tabrizi, Vol III Hadith no. 5052].

 
Verily those people that make fun of people ďż˝ for them a gate of Jannah will be opened. It will be said to them: Come (and enter). That person will come with all their anguish and depression ďż˝ but when he gets close, the gate will be closed in his face. Then another gate (to Jannah) will be opened and it will be said: Come (and enter). So that person comes with all his anguish and depression. But when he gets close, the gate will be closed in his face. This will keep happening to him until it gets to the point where it will be said: Come (and enter), and he will not come from the despair of ever entering paradise.

Cease to sin, because you will not meet Allah with anything [as valuable] as few sins.

If you are aware of your humility, then you are arrogant.

To admonish your brother in private is to advise him and improve him. But to admonish him publicly is to disgrace and shame him.

Knowledge is understanding that a tomato is a fruit.
Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

 
The root meaning of Taqwa is to avoid what one dislikes. It was reported that Umar bin Al-Khattab asked Ubayy bin Ka`b about Taqwa. Ubayy said, “Have you ever walked on a path that has thorns on it” ‘Umar said, “Yes.” Ubayy said, “What did you do then” He said, “I rolled up my sleeves and struggled.” Ubayy said, “That is Taqwa.”

 
Nobody Can Remove Hurt Except Allah. Even if someone tries to cause you any hurt, stay firm in your belief and remember that no one can cause you any pain if Allah does not desire it for you
“And if Allah touches you with hurt, there is none who can remove it but He; and if He intends any good for you, there is none who can keep back His favour; He brings it to whom He pleases of His servants; And He is the Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.”
– Qur’an, surah Yunus; 10:107

 
God made the illusion look real
and the real an illusion.
He concealed the sea
and made the foam visible,
the wind invisible,
and the dust manifest.
you see the dust whirling,
but how can the dust rise by itself?
you see the foam,but not the ocean.
invoke Him with deeds, not words;
for deeds are real
and will save you in the infinite-life.
– Rumi
[Mathnawi]

 
If you make intense supplication
and the timing of the answer is delayed,
do not despair of it.
His reply to you is guaranteed;
but in the way He chooses,
not the way you choose,
and at the moment He desires,
not the moment you desire.
– Ibn Ata’illah Iskandari
[Al-hikam al-‘Ata’iyyah]

 
Let Go of Your Worries Let go of your worries and be completely clear-hearted, like the face of a mirror that contains no images. If you want a clear mirror, behold yourself and see the shameless truth, which the mirror reflects. If metal can be polished to a mirror-like finish, what polishing might the mirror of the heart require? Between the mirror and the heart is this single difference: the heart conceals secrets, while the mirror does not.

Once upon a time a daughter complained to her father that her life was miserable and that she didn’t know how she was going to make it. She was tired of fighting and struggling all the time. It seemed just as one problem was solved, another one soon followed.
Her father, a chef, took her to the kitchen. He filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Once the three pots began to boil, he placed potatoes in one pot, eggs in the second pot and ground coffee beans in the third pot. He then let them sit and boil, without saying a word to his daughter. The daughter, moaned and impatiently waited, wondering what he was doing. After twenty minutes he turned off the burners. He took the potatoes out of the pot and placed them in a bowl. He pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl. He then ladled the coffee out and placed it in a cup.
Turning to her, he asked. “Daughter, what do you see?” “Potatoes, eggs and coffee,” she hastily replied.
“Look closer”, he said, “and touch the potatoes.” She did and noted that they were soft.
He then asked her to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard-boiled egg.
Finally, he asked her to sip the coffee. Its rich aroma brought a smile to her face.
“Father, what does this mean?” she asked.
He then explained that the potatoes, the eggs and coffee beans had each faced the same adversity-the boiling water. However, each one reacted differently. The potato went in strong, hard and unrelenting, but in boiling water, it became soft and weak. The egg was fragile, with the thin outer shell protecting its liquid interior until it was put in the boiling water. Then the inside of the egg became hard. However, the ground coffee beans were unique. After they were exposed to the boiling water, they changed the water and created something new.
“Which one are you?” he asked his daughter. “When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a potato, an egg, or a coffee bean?”
In life, things happen around us and things happen to us, but the only thing
that truly matters is how you choose to react to it and what you make out of it. Life is all about learning, adopting and converting all the struggles that we experience into something positive.
Al-Hasan al-Basri (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: “Do not resent the calamities that come and the disasters that occur, for perhaps in something that you dislike will be your salvation, and perhaps in something that you prefer will be your doom.”

Take a few minutes tonight and reflect of your existence. Start asking yourself good questions such as: Why am I here. Where did I come from. What is my purpose for existence, etc. Eventually you will have more questions than answers. Then you will realize that, all these questions will certainly have an answer, but someone of superior intelligence, ALLAH (SUBHANAHU WA TA’ALAH) HIMSELF created everything, and if we turn to HIM, no matter how long it takes, we will ultimately begin understand HIS reason for everything, if HE wills. Now keep in mind, there are limits to everything, and ALLAH (SUBHANAHU WA TA’ALAH) created us with limits in which the unseen is not visible or understood by us for reasons beyond our understanding.
So instead of expecting instant results, let the journey unfold itself. No matter how long it takes, keep striving and searching and don’t give up. Eventually you will start seeing patterns unfold, and miracles appearing out of nowhere. Than you will realize that this is ALLAH (SUBHANAHU WA TA’ALAH)’S plan for you. And remember as the saying goes, seek, and you shall find. So no matter how long it takes, don’t give up. Who knows, the search might be your purpose to meet people of different races, to be taught certain skills for a higher purpose, to guide and inspire people while you are searching. You will find that other people will be in your shoes searching for the same thing. But ultimately you will find a life you never had. And that’s why ALLAH (SUBHANAHU WA TA’ALAH) doesn’t give us what we want instantly.
Remember, all great people, dedicated a lot of time and effort to be successful, and they eventually found what they were seeking. You will too. You just have to put the time and enjoy the journey with whatever obstacles and opportunities come your way. Never give up and always strive to be the best you can possibly be always!

An old American
Muslim lived on a farm
in the mountains of
eastern Kentucky with
his young grandson.
Each morning Grandpa
was up early sitting at
the kitchen table
reading his Quran. His
grandson wanted to
be just like him and
tried to imitate him in
every way he could.
One day the grandson
asked, “Grandpa! I try
to read the Quran just
like you but I don’t
understand it, and
what I do understand I
forget as soon as I
close the book. What
good does reading the
Qur’an do?”
The Grandfather
quietly turned from
putting coal in the
stove and replied,
“Take this coal basket
down to the river and
bring me back a basket
of water.”
The boy did as he was
told, but all the water
leaked out before he
got back to the house.
The grandfather
laughed and said, “You’ll
have to move a little
faster next time,” and
sent him back to the
river with the basket
to try again. This time
the boy ran faster, but
again the basket was
empty before he
returned home. Out of
breath, he told his
grandfather that it
was impossible to
carry water in a
basket, and he went
to get a bucket
instead.
The old man said, “I
don’t want a bucket of water; I want a basket of water.
You’re just not trying hard enough,” and he went out the door to watch the boy try again.
At this point, the boy knew it was impossible, but he wanted to show his grandfather that even if he ran as fast as he could, the water would leak out before he got back to the house. The boy again dipped the basket into river and ran hard, but when he reached his grandfather the basket was again empty. Out of breath, he said, “See Grandpa, it’s useless!”
“So you think it is useless?” The old man said, “Look at the basket.”
The boy looked at the basket and for the first time realized that the basket was different. It had been transformed from a dirty old coal basket and was now clean, inside and out.
“Son, that’s what happens when you read the Qur’an. You might not understand or remember everything, but when you read it, you will be changed, inside and out. That is the work of Allah in our lives.”
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh & his family) says: “The one who guides to good will be rewarded equally”

Why then do we not take the necessary steps to protect our hearts, from sins, misdeeds and bad character?
قَدْ أَفْلَحَ مَن زَكَّاهَا
He who purifies the soul, he is successful.
[Surah al Shams 91:9]

Life is like a journey on a train…
with its stations…
with changes of routes…
and with accidents !
We board this train when we are born and our parents are the ones who get our ticket.
We believe they will always travel on this train with us.
However, at some station our parents will get off the train, leaving us alone on this journey.
As time goes by, other passengers will board the train, many of whom will be significant – our siblings, friends, children, and even the love of our life.
Many will get off during the journey and leave a permanent vacuum in our lives.
Many will go so unnoticed that we won’t even know when they vacated their seats and got off the train !
This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, good-byes, and farewells.
A good journey is helping, loving, having a good relationship with all co passengers…
and making sure that we give our best to make their journey comfortable.
The mystery of this fabulous journey is ;
We do not know at which station we ourselves are going to get off & who gets off before who only ALLAH knows! The youngest is a flower hand pick by ALLAH@>–
So, we must live in the best way – adjust, forget, forgive, and offer the best of what we have.
It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to leave our seat… we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life.
Thank you for being one of the passengers on my train !
Have a very pleasant journey!

This is an amazing story. I have copied and pasted it from Uswatulmuslimah.
Money can’t Buy it
There was a person who had four sons. When he fell ill, one of his sons told the other three: “Either you nurse him in his sickness and you would not receive anything from his estate; or I would nurse him without any claim on the estate.” They agreed to the second and left the nursing to him. He looked after the father until the father died. As agreed, he did not take anything from the property. He saw in a dream, one night, a person telling him that one hundred dinaars (gold coins) were buried at such and such place, which he could take. He asked the person if that money was blessed. The reply was: “No, it is not so”. He related the dream the next morning to his wife, who insisted that he should take the money but he did not agree. He dreamt again the following night and someone told him about ten dinaars lying buried at a certain place. When he again asked if they were blessed, the reply was in the negative. He related the dream to his wife the next morning, who insisted that he should go and take them, but again he refused to do so. He saw in a dream, the third night, someone telling him that a single dinaar was lying at such and such place, and he should go and take it. He again asked if it was a blessed one. The reply was: “Yes, it is”. So, he went and took the dinaar, purchased two fish with it and brought them home. When he cut them open, an invaluable pearl was found in the stomach of each fish. Both these pearls were sold to the king of the country in return for ninety mule-loads of gold. (Musannaf ‘Abdur Razzaaq #21027)
Lesson: The materialistic world that we live in constantly indoctrinates us that the be all and end all of all pleasures is wealth. Hence anything that poses as an obstacle in acquiring it must be removed and exterminated, even if it may be one’s own biological parents. It is therefore no surprise that caregivers and old-aged homes have become so common although never heard off previously. In the past the elderly were regarded as a source of blessing and every child ‘died’ for the privilege of taking care of his parents, whereas today they are regarded as a burden and moved from one home to another, until finally ‘dumped’ in an old-aged home.
The innumerable blessings which are concealed in serving the elderly cannot be bought with all the money in the world. The rewards of the Hereafter are guaranteed. However, one also enjoys great blessings in this world.

Observe how the life of this world deceives those around you. It lures them into the traps of vanity, wealth, and fame, and exalts them above others. This splendor blinds them, and they are lost forever in illusion.
But then in one instant, life deals the blow of death, and all is gone, and with the Beguiler it stands laughing at their sad end. So overcome your egos that you may be saved from the snares that devoured kings and paupers alike.

    This is an amazing story. I have copied and pasted it from Uswatulmuslimah.

    Money can’t Buy it

    There was a person who had four sons. When he fell ill, one of his sons told the other three: “Either you nurse him in his sickness and you would not receive anything from his estate; or I would nurse him without any claim on the estate.” They agreed to the second and left the nursing to him. He looked after the father until the father died. As agreed, he did not take anything from the property. He saw in a dream, one night, a person telling him that one hundred dinaars (gold coins) were buried at such and such place, which he could take. He asked the person if that money was blessed. The reply was: “No, it is not so”. He related the dream the next morning to his wife, who insisted that he should take the money but he did not agree. He dreamt again the following night and someone told him about ten dinaars lying buried at a certain place. When he again asked if they were blessed, the reply was in the negative. He related the dream to his wife the next morning, who insisted that he should go and take them, but again he refused to do so. He saw in a dream, the third night, someone telling him that a single dinaar was lying at such and such place, and he should go and take it. He again asked if it was a blessed one. The reply was: “Yes, it is”. So, he went and took the dinaar, purchased two fish with it and brought them home. When he cut them open, an invaluable pearl was found in the stomach of each fish. Both these pearls were sold to the king of the country in return for ninety mule-loads of gold. (Musannaf ‘Abdur Razzaaq #21027)

    Lesson: The materialistic world that we live in constantly indoctrinates us that the be all and end all of all pleasures is wealth. Hence anything that poses as an obstacle in acquiring it must be removed and exterminated, even if it may be one’s own biological parents. It is therefore no surprise that caregivers and old-aged homes have become so common although never heard off previously. In the past the elderly were regarded as a source of blessing and every child ‘died’ for the privilege of taking care of his parents, whereas today they are regarded as a burden and moved from one home to another, until finally ‘dumped’ in an old-aged home.
    The innumerable blessings which are concealed in serving the elderly cannot be bought with all the money in the world. The rewards of the Hereafter are guaranteed. However, one also enjoys great blessings in this world.

    Something to think about.

    Where Are We Headed?

    Alhamdulillah! As time passes, The Deen of Islam is being recognised by many people as The Only Deen that is divinely accepted. Despite negative propaganda, Allah Ta’ala still allows the rays of Imaan to reach hearts that possessed everything else but Allah Ta’ala. Many non-muslims have discarded the “non” and have affirmed their submission to Allah Ta’ala. In the same vein, the sheer amount of goodness that emanates from the lives of Muslims today, boggles the minds of non believers, who find it hard to equate what they witness to the propaganda they consume.

    Compared to times of the past, we find more masaajid, more worshippers, more knowledge and definitely more efforts in trying to please Allah Ta’ala. This comes as a huge blow to shaitaan, who made it his mission to take people with him to jahannam. All this good, all this worship, all this charity, all this inclination to please Allah Ta’ala? How will he ever succeed with his mission?

    Shaitaan has always used wily and cunning methods to lead people astray. To such an extent, that if the people were not wary, his offerings begin to look like ibaadat! It just takes one influential “intellectual’s” philosophical thought to start the downward spiral.

    In today’s time, he uses the same cunning…..Instead of stopping the Salaah, Roza, Umrahs, Haj, Charity and Ibaadaat, he enjoins people to extend their faithfulness to such seemingly good actions that were never heard of before.

    Using an Arabic name for Market Place, he has influenced thousands to believe that their presence in a SOUK is actually an act of virtue……Allah Ta’ala’s name and Praise of our beloved Nabi (sallalahualaihi wasaallam) in the form of Nasheed Artists is used to entice people to believe that they are doing good. So many other “Islamic Attractions” are placed at these SOUKs that one never even considers that Our Beloved Nabi (sallahualayhi wasallam) has labelled the Aswaak (plural of souk) as the most hated of places in the eyes of Allah Ta’ala.

    Similarly, he uses the interest of people in Islamic Historical Venues to make them rush headlong to spend their vacations on tours and expeditions without thinking or considering the Injunctions of Shariah regarding travel. Ladies are bamboozled into believing that the Tour Operator can stand in as a Mahram for her travel. The intermingling is considered a necessity in order to gain seemingly noble goals from such travels. The plight of Muslims being victimized is actually used to send one on a guilt trip to those lands. Suddenly, one who hardly remembers his own parents in Dua, let alone the Palestinians, believes that his “3 Haram Tour”, with a bit of prancing around with Na Mahrams at the Dead Sea, is the solution for the poor Palestinians. The missing of Salaah and the disregard of Hijab become insignificant.

    Like this, there are numerous trends that have crept into our lives, which we consider Deeni, but is in fact very far away from the Pleasure of Allah Ta’ala. The Muslim media houses with questionable concepts, the use of Shari and Deeni jargon to cloak haram wealth, The so called Islamic clothing that is anything but Islamic, the disregard for the prohibition of picture-making with “Islamic video clips and pictures”, and the list goes on.

    Now, we have a ship cruise being touted as Islamic. Armed with baseless jusification, prominent Muslim personalities, Halaal food, Salaah facilities and other so-called Islamic attractions, the organisers appeal to the hearts of Muslims, convincing them that this is something that is totally within the pleasure of Allah Ta’ala. Charity is thrown in to appeal to the Muslim Generosity as well, not withstanding the fact, that people don’t have food on the table. Should we sponsor the less fortunate on a cruise or rather use that money to purchase a ton of flour in Syria? The mere fact that all these aspects have to be used to convince one, should be a warning to us. If it were a noble and virtuous venture, there would be no need to convince one of its good nature!

     What is kept hidden? Besides the glaring Israaf (wastage) of money and the Haraam surcharge to keep the casino and bar closed, there are many other different violations of Shariah that are ignored. Like the definite intermingling of sexes, the nonsense of Muslim Comedy, the  Kaafir-like ”Halaal” cocktails and the blasphemy of Ibadat at such a place which is ordinarily used for filthy actions that draw the wrath of Allah Ta’ala . We cannot stand the blasphemy of a non Muslim desecrating the Quraan Shareef, or hurting the honour of our Beloved Nabi (sallalahu alaihiwasallam), yet we are prepared to put our heads down on the deck of zina and filth in salaah? The absence of gambling or consumption of alcohol on this particular cruise does not make the cruise anymore Islamic than a person cleaning his toilet and setting his dastarkhan or table therein for a few meals. The toilet will always remain a toilet and the filthy cruise will always remain filthy. Those that are hell bent on making this concept a trend in their lives should understand that this is not Islamic at all and is just another shaitaani concept veiled with Muslim terms. As a guide, ask yourself, that if my maut had to come, would I be content with my life leaving this world at such a venue where the disobedience of Allah Ta’ala is the day to day activity? If not, then it is important that we do not allow such venues and acitivities to be part of our lives.

    Debates and arguments on such issues will definitely be made. Shaitaan may whisper to you about boarding aircraft for Haj and Umrah, and all of the above objections applying to the aircraft as well. Other such arguments will be made. However, none of these proclaim to be Muslim or Islamic Flights. Secondly, the object of those going to Makkah Shareef and Madeenah Shareef is ibadat, not the flight or means of transport. Here on the “Islamic Cruise”, the object is a simulation of a shaitaani way of life, without the alcohol and gambling for which payment has to be made. Our beloved Nabi (sallalahualaihiwasallam) has warned us that one who imitates a nation is of them! Let us not forget, that at the end of it all, there will be somebody who is profiting, making huge sums of money. Whilst there is no wrong in gaining halaal wealth, there is definitely a problem when Deen is used, abused and manipulated to do so! Really, it is a sad state of Imaan for that man who sells the Deen of Allah in marketing ploys for his own material benefit. He laughs all the way to the bank, whilst the poor Muslim is engaged in actions that makes shaitaan laugh all the way to jahannam.

    Let us become wise to shaitaan’s cunning methods. All the whispering arguments of Shaitaan regarding all these trends, even if those whispers sound logical or Deeni can be answered with the tried and tested teaching of Deen of using Quran and Hadith as a mirror. Measure all these trends against the Sunnah and Mizaaj of our Beloved Nabi (sallalahu alaihuwasallam). If it fits comfortably without compromise, then you have leeway for the action. If it does not, even in a single aspect, then run far away from it, for those people who interfere with the Deen will be turned away from the Blessed Meeting with Nabi Muhammed (sallalahualahiwasallam) by the angels, who will say that “these are not of your people, for you do not know what they did with your Deen after you left!”

    Struggles of our Life : A short inspiring story.

    Once upon a time a daughter complained to her father that her life was miserable and that she didn’t know how she was going to make it. She was tired of fighting and struggling all the time. It seemed just as one problem was solved, another one soon followed.

    Her father, a chef, took her to the kitchen. He filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Once the three pots began to boil, he placed potatoes in one pot, eggs in the second pot and ground coffee beans in the third pot. He then let them sit and boil, without saying a word to his daughter. The daughter, moaned and impatiently waited, wondering what he was doing. After twenty minutes he turned off the burners. He took the potatoes out of the pot and placed them in a bowl. He pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl. He then ladled the coffee out and placed it in a cup.

    Turning to her, he asked. “Daughter, what do you see?” “Potatoes, eggs and coffee,” she hastily replied.

    “Look closer”, he said, “and touch the potatoes.” She did and noted that they were soft.

    He then asked her to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard-boiled egg.

    Finally, he asked her to sip the coffee. Its rich aroma brought a smile to her face.

    “Father, what does this mean?” she asked.

    He then explained that the potatoes, the eggs and coffee beans had each faced the same adversity-the boiling water. However, each one reacted differently. The potato went in strong, hard and unrelenting, but in boiling water, it became soft and weak. The egg was fragile, with the thin outer shell protecting its liquid interior until it was put in the boiling water. Then the inside of the egg became hard. However, the ground coffee beans were unique. After they were exposed to the boiling water, they changed the water and created something new.

    “Which one are you?” he asked his daughter. “When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a potato, an egg, or a coffee bean?”

    In life, things happen around us and things happen to us, but the only thing

    that truly matters is how you choose to react to it and what you make out of it. Life is all about learning, adopting and converting all the struggles that we experience into something positive.

    Al-Hasan al-Basri (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: “Do not resent the calamities that come and the disasters that occur, for perhaps in something that you dislike will be your salvation, and perhaps in something that you prefer will be your doom.”
