We connected..

Have you noticed when you meet a particular person for the first time, you get along with them instantly? 

You agree on most things, you feel comfortable in their presence and most importantly you talk to them as if you have known them for years. You even express yourself in a way that would take you months or even years with other people. You don't hold back what you want to say and can express yourself freely in their presence.

After meeting them a few times offline or conversing with them through social media you have a firm attachment to them and proudly proclaim them to be your brother/sister.
The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) described why this happens.

A'isha (radiallahu anha) narrated that the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:
“Souls are troops collected together and those who got along with one another (in the realm where souls existed before entering physical bodies in this world) will have an affinity with one another and get along (in this world)."
(Bukhari, 3158; Muslim, 2638)

So the person that you love and cherish in this world are with you for a reason. You were joined together before you were born and you exist in harmony together as brothers/sisters in this world as a result of that attachment.

Al-Khattabi states that people are attracted to those who are like them and people’s souls recognise one another according to their nature. If they are similar they will get along and if they are different they will not get along.
Finally, this sums things up. Ibn Hibbaan narrated:
"Ibn Abbas saw a man and said,
‘Indeed he loves me.’
His companions asked,
‘And how do you know?’
He said,
‘Because I love him and souls are like recruited soldiers, those that recognise one another unite in harmony and those that do not recognise one another are at an aversion.’

(Rawdah Al-Uqalaa, 1/108).

A HEARTBROKEN SISTER Written by Naadira Chhipa

A very heartbroken sister recently contacted me. She is a revert sister from a rural area just outside the glitz and glamour of the city. She recently attended an 'Islamic' high tea which a charity organization sponsored for her as she was looking forward to gaining some inspiration, guidance as well as meeting other sisters in a relaxed environment. 

She wore her only fancy black abaayah gifted to her by a kind hearted sister the day she embraced Islam. As she walked into the venue she was confused as to what was happening due to the extravagant decor and glamorous ambiance. She had to read the banners twice as she thought she was at the wrong function. Sisters were dressed in designer clothing, carrying the fanciest of handbags, diamond embellished heels and draped in blinding bling. Semi nude dresses, picture perfect pouts and intermingling with only the rich and famous was the order of the day.
