๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒบ๐Ÿƒ Wake Up !!!!

Two fish were swimming when they saw a piece of meat dangling before them. The younger fish darted toward it with an open mouth. The older fish cried out, “Stop! You can’t see it, but there is a hook inside that meat. It is connected by an invisible line to a pole outside the water. There is a man holding the pole. If you eat the meat, the hook will catch in your jaw and the man will pull you out of the water. He will cut you open with a knife, roast you on a fire and eat you. Then he will throw your remains to his cat.”
The young fish stopped. The two of them swam away. But when the young fish was alone, he thought to himself, “Let me investigate for myself how accurate these claims are.”
He went back to the meat, swam around it, above and below it. He swam as far as he could in widening circles around the meat. After a long search, he said to himself, “I’ve looked far and wide, and I haven’t found any sign of a man, a pole, a knife, a fire or a cat. In fact, I’ve found no trace of anything outside this water we live in. These must just be stories.”
He went back to the meat and ate it. The hook caught in his jaw, he felt himself being yanked out of the water. He saw a pole, a man and a knife, but at that point his knowledge was useless.
MORAL: So is the message of the Noble Quran. Some of it is beyond our comprehension. We will realize its reality only when death strikes.
May Almighty Allah Ta'ala grant us the ability to read, understand and live the message of the Noble Qur'an....

Goodness in Giving...

From Katherine Hepburn

Once when I was a teenager, my father and I were standing in line to buy tickets for the circus.

Finally, there was only one other family between us and the ticket counter. This family made a big impression on me.

There were eight children, all probably under the age of 12. The way they were dressed, you could tell they didn't have a lot of money, but their clothes were neat and clean.

The children were well-behaved, all of them standing in line, two-by-two behind their parents, holding hands. They were excitedly jabbering about the clowns, animals, and all the acts they would be seeing that night. By their excitement you could sense they had never been to the circus before. It would be a highlight of their lives.

The father and mother were at the head of the pack standing proud as could be. The mother was holding her husband's hand, looking up at him as if to say, "You're my knight in shining armor." He was smiling and enjoying seeing his family happy.

The ticket lady asked the man how many tickets he wanted? He proudly responded, "I'd like to buy eight children's tickets and two adult tickets, so I can take my family to the circus." The ticket lady stated the price.

The man's wife let go of his hand, her head dropped, the man's lip began to quiver. Then he leaned a little closer and asked, "How much did you say?" The ticket lady again stated the price.

The man didn't have enough money. How was he supposed to turn and tell his eight kids that he didn't have enough money to take them to the circus?

Seeing what was going on, my dad reached into his pocket, pulled out a $20 bill, and then dropped it on the ground. (We were not wealthy in any sense of the word!) My father bent down, picked up the $20 bill, tapped the man on the shoulder and said, "Excuse me, sir, this fell out of your pocket."

The man understood what was going on. He wasn't begging for a handout but certainly appreciated the help in a desperate, heartbreaking and embarrassing situation.

He looked straight into my dad's eyes, took my dad's hand in both of his, squeezed tightly onto the $20 bill, and with his lip quivering and a tear streaming down his cheek, he replied; "Thank you, thank you, sir. This really means a lot to me and my family."

My father and I went back to our car and drove home. The $20 that my dad gave away is what we were going to buy our own tickets with.

Although we didn't get to see the circus that night, we both felt a joy inside us that was far greater than seeing the circus could ever provide.

*That day I learnt the value to Give.*

*The Giver is bigger than the Receiver.*

*If you want to be large, larger than the life, learn to Give.*

*Only if you Give can you Receive more. The Givers heart becomes the Ocean, in tune with the Almighty - The Source*

*Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get - only with what you are expecting to give - which is everything.*

Dua for Rajab

Rajab, the seventh month of the Islamic calendar is a stepping stone to the    auspicious months of Sha’baan and Ramadaan. Rajab itself is a blessed month being from the Ashurul Hurum (Sacred months), where the rewards of virtuous deeds are increased.

On the commencement of the month of Rajab, Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallamwould recite the following Dua:

اَللَّهُمَّ بَارِكْ لَنَا فِي رَجَبٍ وَشَعْبَانَ وَبَلِّغْنَا رَمَضَانَ

“Allahumma baarik lanaa fee Rajabin wa Sha'baana wa ballighnaa Ramadaan.”

“Oh Allah! grant us blessings in the month of Rajab and Shabaan, and make us reach the month of Ramadaan.”(Shu'abul-Imaan)

This Dua should be recited regularly at the advent of the month of Rajab. May Allah Ta’ala bless us with witnessing Ramadaan and grant us the ability to spend it in a manner that is most pleasing to Him, Ameen.

The first of Rajab 1438 will be on Wednesday , 29 March  2017 depending on moon sighting.

Ya Rabb Grant us all to reap the benefits of  all the auspicious months ahead.Grant us the health and strength to fulfill our obligations to Allah and each other ,increase our ibaadah, sunnah fasting, sunnah salaah etc.May we prepare ourselves Spiritualty,Mentally and Emotionally.Ya Rabb  Grant us all the ability to truly forgive each other and live in peace and harmony.May Allah grant us the Wisdom,Understanding and remove Pride,Jealousy, Malice,Hatred from our hearts in order for Allah to enter our Hearts and soften our hearts.Ya Allah Forgive us all and have Mercy on us. May Allah ease the pain of the sick, grant janatul firdos to all deseased,grant peace to those who are going through trying times and remove any difficulties, Grant those who are looking for work  grant them success. AMEEN

Verse of the day

Todays verse .... Part of todays discussion at  Libasut Taqwa's Sunnah empowerment program

The Greatness of the Month of Rajab

This month is one of the noblest of months for the following reasons:
1. It is one of the Sacred Months (there are four of these in the Islamic calendar).
2. It is one of the months of Supplication and even during the period of Ignorance (before the coming of Islam) this was well known amongst the people and the Arabs of that time would always wait and anticipate the coming of this month so that they could supplicate and ask their needs.
3. This month is the month of Amir Al-Mo’minin `Ali ibn Abi salib (peace be upon him) just as it has been mentioned in the ahadith and as we are also told that the month of Sha`ban is the month of the Messenger of Allah (prayers be upon him and his family) and the Month of Ramadhan is the month of Allah (Glory and Greatness be to Him).
4. The first night of this month is one of the four nights in the year which it has been emphasized that we should stay awake in prayer and worship.
5. In relation to the 15thof this month, it has been mentioned that it is the most loved of days in the sight of Allah (Glory and Greatness be to Him) and it is the time when we should perform the action known as
“Istiftah” which shall be explained in detail later on in this discussion.
6. The 27th of this month is the date when the official appointment of the Noble Prophet (prayers be upon him and his family) took place and it is the day when the mercy and blessings of Allah (Glory and Greatness be to Him) were physically manifested upon this Earth – something which this world has never seen from its inception until today.
This is a glimpse at some of the benefits of this month, as we do not possess the ability and capacity to fully understand and appreciate all of the greatness that is accompanied with this month.

One of the important things which must be observed in this month is to keep in mind the hadith “Malak Da’ee” which has been narrated from the Noble Prophet (prayers be upon him and his family).
The Noble Messenger of Allah (prayers be upon him and his family) has related that, “Allah the Most High has placed an Angel in the seventh heaven who is referred to as ‘Da’ee’. When the Month of Rajab approaches, this Angel repeats the following prayer every night until the morning time, ‘Congratulations to those who are busy in the glorification of Allah. Congratulations to those who are obeying the commands of Allah.’ Allah (Glory and Greatness be to Him) then replies, ‘I sit in the company of that person who sits in My Company, and I obey the commands of that person who obeys My Commands and I forgive that person who also forgives others. The month is My month and the servant is My servant and the mercy (shown) is My mercy. Whoever calls Me during this month, I will surely reply to him and whoever requests something from Me, I will surely grant that to him and whosoever requests guidance from Me, I will truly guide him. I have made this month as a link between Myself and My servants and whoever takes hold of this link will surely reach Me.”

*What is the real patience*

The Fish said to the Sea;

"You can never see my tears, because I am in the water."

The Sea answered back;

"But I can feel your tears, because you are in my heart.."

This is how we are;

No one will feel us except those who are truly close to our hearts..

Arwah bin al-Zubayr's leg was cut because of the disease which he suffered, and on the same day the dearest of his seven sons died..

The dearest son to his heart. He died after the horse kicked him and killed him..

Arwah said:- "Allahuma laka Al hamd, Waina Lillah Waina Ilehi Rajiuun.."
[Oh Allah, thank you, and we are from Allah and to Him shall return]                             He gave me seven sons and He took one.           
He gave me two legs and two hands and He took only one leg.
When Allah gives us calamities, He always Forgives our sins..
And when He takes away something, He always gives back something better..
I ask Allah to join us together in Jannah..

The days passed and one day Arwah entered the house of a Khalifa, and saw a Sheikh who was old and had a face which is damaged and eyes blind..

The Khalifa said;
"Oh Arwah ask this sheikh about his story.."

Arwah asked him: What is your story, Oh Sheikh..?

Sheikh said;
"Oh Arwah do you know that I was living in a valley?
And in that valley there was no one who was richer in money, properties and children like me..

In one night floods came and washed away my children, properties and everything that I earned.
The next day at sun rise I was only having a small baby and a camel.
The camel ran away and I ran after him wanting to catch him but I did not reach far and I heard the scream of a baby, I turned back and saw the baby's head in the mouth of a wolf.
I tried to save the baby but I couldn't as the wolf had torn him apart. As I was going away the wolf hit me lightly on my face. That is why my face is damaged and my eyes are blind...

Arwah asked him; What did you say after all this, Oh Sheikh..?

The Sheikh replied: I said "Allahuma Laka Alhamd.."
'O Allah, You left with me a heart and a tongue which will always mention You..'

This is the real patience, these are those who Allah mentions them:                                   ٌ إِنَّمَا يُوَفَّى الصَّابِرُونَ أَجْرَهُم بِغَيْرِ حِسَابٍ

{only the patient will be paid back their reward in full without measure.}

What kind of calamities have you got until you become sad and live in misery?

Can you compare their misery to yours?

They were patient and Allah Will Reward them, and we are inpatient what will we get..?

"Rabana Laka Alhamd Hamdan Katheeran Twaiban Mubarak Feeh.."

You are living with your family..

You enjoy good health and wellbeing..

You sleep on the (bed) of your own..

You eat and drink and go out and live safely..

You don't feel fear around you..

Whatever you want you get it, either immidiately or after a while..

You laugh, move and enjoy your life fully..

You have energy and mentally good and physically fit..

But you are writing in your private status:                     (Oh my worries have mercy on me I'm not strong to have patience)
(Oh death take me how much my body have to suffer)
You create sadness, and you put pictures of people crying and in pain..

I want to know what sadness are you talking about?

Thank Allah and be grateful to Him.. because you don't know what are worries and fear and panic and hunger and displacement really means..

I'm afraid Allah might give us the calamities which we write in our status..

Think about it, may be this article can change many people who imagine that they live in misery..

Many thanks to the one who wrote this article..

May Allah Reward the one who will share this article..

Keeping up with the Kareems by Invoking the wrath of Allah to please a woman


By Naadira Chipa
His brother just bought a beautiful sea facing villa in a fancy neighbourhood.The exquisite interior design was done by a renowned French interior designer. This however sends his wife into a complete frenzy. She now wants her husband to sell their holiday flat at the beachfront as well as their spare car and take a bond inorder to buy an equally plush house in the same neighbourhood as her brother in law but not too close it has to be on the upper Ridge,she wants a better view of the ocean than they have just so she can keep up with the Kareems.

Her cousin left on a long awaited family vacation to the Maldives.She sees their picture perfect smiles plastered all over social media.This cannot be happening as she sits at home doing her daily chores.She starts nagging at her husband as soon as he arrives from work,insulting and belittling him for never ever taking her anywhere nice.She compels him to use the money he has been saving for Haj to book a flight to Mauritius just so she can keep up with the Kareems.

His friend just drove past him in an all new black Mercedes Benz.It has been over five years since he purchased a car this makes him feel like a failure so he stops at his bank to get his vehicle loan approved even though the interest rate is at a all time high and he does not have that extra income yet he has to keep up with the Kareems.

She watches her nephews face light up as his parents gift him keys to a holiday flat at the beachfront for his 21st birthday.She is not going to let her son down as his 23rd birthday is around the corner although they cannot afford to buy him a flat so she borrows enough money from her parents,ignoring her husbands stern disapprovel,inorder to buy him a small car even though he already had one.She has to keep up with the Kareems.

The pressure of Keeping up with the Kareems has caused alot of hearts and homes to shatter and break.There will always be a house that is more beautiful than yours,a car that is a later model than yours,a gift that is more expensive than you can afford and people that are in leagues above you in terms of material wealth.As much as we try to outshine and out do one another in this temporary world we will never succeed as everything and everyone has an expiry date.
Be content with what Allah has gifted you as in that lies your happiness.Always observe people who have much less than you and the beautiful light of gratefullness shall illuminate your life.

Try keeping up with your Salaah,zikr,recitation of the Quraan and improving your akhlaaq rather than keeping up with the Kareems.

P.S : To all those named Kareem this was not intended to cause you any harm.Purely  fictional.- Naadira Chhipa

The Leaking Bucket


Beware of the leaking bucket.

1.You wear abaya and hijab but with perfume and makeup. ( a leaking bucket )

2. You're following the Sunnah and have a beard but you don't lower your gaze. (A leaking bucket)

3. You pray all of your prayers on time but you have no Khushu at all. (A leaking bucket)

4. You're very kind to people and speak with them gently but with your family you're always harsh. (A leaking bucket)

5. You honour and treat your guests well but when they leave, you gossip about them and talk about their flaws. (A leaking bucket)

6. You give alot of Sadaqah to the poor but you humiliate them and hurt them. (A leaking bucket)

7. You stand up for tahajjud at night, fast and reads Quran everyday but you cut your family ties. (A leaking bucket)

8. You fast and have sabr for the pangs of hunger and thirst but you swear, insult, curse. (A leaking bucket)

9. You help others but you're doing it to gain something from them and not doing those acts of kindness for the sake of Allah's Glory. (A leaking bucket)

10. You post reminders and have thousands of followers on facebook and instagram but you're doing it for the fame, not to please Allah. (A leaking bucket)

Do not gather all your good deeds in a leaking bucket.

You struggle to fill it whilst it easily runs out through the leaking holes!

May Allah make us do all of good actions for pleasing HIM alone and may HE be pleased with us always.

Allahumma aameen!

Punishment for not Wearing Scarf


  
Q: What's the punishment of a women/girl not wearing a scarf?

A. It appears in a hadith narrated by Hazrat Ayesha (رضي الله عنها) that Rasoolullah (صلي الله عليه وسلم) said: "Any woman who removes her scarf or shawl outside her home, has violated the barrier of sanctity between her and Her Rabb" (Reported by Imam Bayhaqi)

Once the barrier of sanctity is removed, it means such a woman is no longer safe from Allah’s punishment.

Hazrat Ayesha رضي الله عنها, the narrator of this hadith, used to evict women from her home if they came to her with transparent scarves or shawls through which the hair could be seen.

Another hadith states that on the Day of Judgment those women will be in great pain who were dressed yet naked in this world. This means they wore transparent garments. Imagine then what the position will be of women who wore no covering at all. For them will be greater hardship on the day of Judgement.

In one hadith it is stated that اَللّهُ تَعَالَى has cursed the looker and the one who is looked at. The one who is looked at is the woman who exposes her body in public for people to see and admire. From this we learn that the woman who walks out bareheaded is cursed by اَللّهُ تَعَالَى.

Ulema have mentioned that a woman who goes out bareheaded is prone to the effects and possession of Jinn.

And اَللّهُ تَعَالَى knows best

Sins

🍃🌺🍃

Some Evil Effects of Sin

Hazrat Umar ibn Al Khattab Radiyallahu Anhu has mentioned, “Some Evil Effects that are Connected to a Sin” :

✨ A person who sins, invites the ‘Wrath of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala’ and pleases Shaytaan (the accursed one).

✨ A person who commits sins, distances himself away from Jannah and gains proximity to Jahannum.

✨ A person pollutes his once pure soul with sin (and contaminates his Baatin).

✨ A person distresses the angels who are in his attendance (by writing out sins).


✨ A person causes grief to Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam in his Qabr.


✨ A person has made the heavens, the earth and all creations ‘witnesses’ of his evil deed.

✨ Hazrat Abu Hurairah Radiyallahu Anhu narrates that Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said: When the Mu’min sins, a black spot forms on his heart. If he makes Istighfaar and Taubah, the black mark is removed and his heart is purified. If he increases his sin, the black mark increases. This is the corrosion of the heart spoken of by Allah Ta’ala (in the Qur’aan) ~ Tirmidhi

"NOT EVERY.."

by Naadira Chhipa

Not every problem needs to be fixed right now,give yourself time,everything works out at the end.

Not every negative situation needs to be stressed over,breathe,you will get through this just like you did before.

Not every battle is worth fighting,choose your battles wisely.

Not every wrinkle,pimple,grey hair,scar,double chin,dark circles need to be covered,embrace and love yourself just the way you are.

Not every individual you meet has a hidden agenda,there are still many sincerely kind people around.

Not every heartbreak is a tragedy,it can also be a great lesson and blessing in disguise.

Not every insult or criticism is worth obsessing over for the rest of your life,let it go,for your own peace of mind.

Not every pain needs to be healed immediately,some wounds take more than a lifetime to heal.

Not every memory needs to be captured by a camera,some precious memories are captured and stored in the depths of your heart and mind.

Not every aspect of your life needs to be shared on social media,remain a sweet mystery.

Not every face wears a mask of deception,some are authentic in an artificial world.

Not every failure is a disappointment,use it as a stepping stone towards your next success.

Not every cake will bake to perfection,eat it with some cream,it will taste divine.

Not every action needs a reaction.

Not everyday will be sunny, exciting,awesome,brilliant or happy but you can find beauty even on a cloudy day,it's just a smile away.

Friendships

Two friends were walking
through the desert. During some
point of the journey they had an argument, and
one friend slapped the other one in the face.
The one who got slapped was hurt,
but without saying anything, wrote in the sand:
TODAY MY BEST FRIEND
SLAPPED ME IN THE FACE.
They kept on walking until they found an oasis,
where they decided to take a bath. The one who
had been slapped got stuck in the mire and
started drowning, but the friend saved him.
After he recovered from the near
drowning, he wrote on a stone:
TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SAVED MY LIFE.
The friend who had slapped and
saved his best friend asked him,
“After I hurt you, you wrote in the
sand and now, you write on a stone,
why?” The other friend replied “When someone
hurts us we should write it down in sand where winds
of forgiveness can erase it away. But, when someone
does something good for us, we must engrave
it in stone where no wind can ever erase it.”
LEARN TO WRITE YOUR HURTS IN THE SAND
AND T O CARVE YOUR BENEFITS IN STONE.
They say it takes a minute to find a special person,
an hour to appreciate them,
a day to love them,
but then an entire life to forget them.
Send this phrase to the people you’ll never
forget. It’s a short message to let them
know that you’ll never forget them.
- MORAL -
Do not value the THINGS you have in your life..
But value WHO you have in your life!
Today is 'I love you day'.
send to everyone you love including me if you love me.
Whether its real love,
Friendship love,
Brotherly love,
Sister love,
Daughter love,
Son love,
Father love, and
Motherly love.
You are loved!!❤

Preservation

I’m always amazed at the statement of al-Hasan al-Basri where he says that ..... the hafidh of the Qur’an is not just preserving the Qur’an through his hifdh. No, rather the Qur’an is what is preserving him/her.

The more we surround ourselves with the Qur’an and busy ourselves in its recital, implementation l and memorisation, the more Allah preserves us and protects us through it.

When we think about how, at times, thousands of Angels descended with just one Surah (e.g. Al-An’am) or one verse, it is no surprise then to know that Angels surround, protect, and walk alongside the huffadh of Qur’an who spend their days in the company of this Book. It is no surprise if - due to their continuous recital - they find their life blossoming, their affairs being taken care of, their illnesses being removed, their heart being settled in peace, things working out for them and so on.

When you preserve the Qur’an, realise that the Qur’an preserves you tons more.

Fitrah

*Turmoil of the tongue* - *the ferocious five*

There is an English phrase _‘You are what you eat’_. I beg to differ. I believe it should be _‘You are what you utter’_. The Hadith of Nabi S.A.W. speaks of five types of people that are Shaytaan’s bosom buddies.

*1. The Insulter*
When that lady’s obesity is mocked, it’s not a joke anymore.

One of the wives of Nabi S.A.W., Safiyyah R.A., was once referred to as ‘Qaseerah’ which literally translates to ‘shorty’. This of course broke her heart. Nabi S.A.W. informed that person...

_“…You have uttered such a word that if it has to be dropped into the oceans, it will turn the oceans bitter” (Abu Dawud)_

*2. The Two-Face*
_‘Ay I don’t know what kind of people they are. Breakfast time just one lousy cup of tea and rusks. No biscuits and cakes.’_ All this after staying for free at their house for an entire week. What’s worst is at their house, the person said the same thing about the people that he/she is currently staying with.

_“On the day of Judgement, you will find the two-faced lot to be the worst of people, those that go to one group with one face and then meet the next group with a different face.” (Bukhari)_

*3. The Judge*
I always say that sometimes those closest to Allah are the most distant from people. Those that we don’t worry about, those that the community doesn’t care about, those are known as ‘write-offs’, sometimes they could be the closest to Allah.

Nabi S.A.W. said: _“He who accuses his brother of a sin (that he has made Taubah from) will not die until he gets involved in that same sin.”_

*4. The Chatterbox*
There is nothing wrong in being a chatterbox, but the more you talk, the greater your chances of destroying your ibaadat.

_“A man with the habit of silence (with average Ibaadat) is better off than a man with sixty years of Nafl Ibaadat (but he talks a lot).” (Mishkaat)_

*5. The Biter*
Backbiting or gossip is not only disliked by Allah, but it also destroys your good deeds. Sometimes, we end up gossiping in the person’s presence. Like when we give eye indications to our sister or cousin about a certain aunty by the table when she dishes out a 3rd helping.

Ibn Abbas R.A. narrates: _“Two people were performing Salaah while they were fasting. When Nabi S.A.W. completed his Salaah, he called them and asked them to repeat their Wudhu and Salaah. He also told them to keep Qadha of their fasts. They asked: What is the reason for this oh messenger of Allah. Nabi S.A.W. replied: The two of you were gossiping about a certain person.” (Mishkaat)_

‘Ugly’ is commonly linked to the face. How wrong are we. It rightfully should be linked to the tongue.

Jummah Mubaruk

*Means of attaining barakah in our homes*

*Barakah* a word we here often but sadly we have lost it in our homes, so we find no barakah in time, nor in sustenance or our wealth and children, so what then is the key to barakah.

*🔑There are 8 keys to attaining barakah* :

*1-Tilaawah of the Quraan *:
‎قال الله تعالى
‎(وهذا كتاب أنزلناه مبارك)

Allah has made the Quraan al Kareem a source of barakah, if we ponder over its meaning and we live our lives according to its teachings . And for this reason our beloved messenger ﷺ said about the home in which Quraan is recited.
‎ (تسكنه الملائكة تهجره الشياطين ويتسع بأهله ويكثر خيره).
The malaaikahs live in it, the shaithaans flee from it and it expands for the family and goodness increases in it.

‎*2-البسملة وذكر الله*:
*Saying bismillah and making the zikr of Allah*
‎قال رسول الله صل الله عليه وسلم
‎إذا دخل الرجل بيته فذكر الله تعالى عند دخوله وعند طعامه، قال الشيطان لأصحابه لا مبيت ولا عشاء
The messenger ﷺ said: if a man enters his home and he mentioned Allahs name upon his entrance and before he ate, Shaithaan says to his companions, there is no home nor food for you here.

‎*3-الصدقة*:
*Sadaqah*
From the means of attaining barakah in a home is to give sadaqah ........especially secret sadaqah because it extinguishes the anger of Allah.

‎*4-صلة الرحم*:
*Maintaining family ties*
And indeed our messenger ﷺ has informed us that maintaining family ties, and observing good character.....
increases our sustenance and our lives

5- *Waking up early to search for your rizq*
‎جاء في الحديث  (بورك لأمتي في بكورها) أي الخروج لطلب الرزق باكرا" .
It is mentioned in a Hadith
( Give glad tidings to my ummah in the early parts of the day)
Which means - those who leave their homes to search for their rizq in the early parts of the morning.

‎*6-إقامة الصلاة*:
*Establishing salaah on its fixed time is a means of attaining barakah*
‎، قال الله تعالى
‎«وأمر أهلك بالصلاة واصطبر عليها لا نسألك رزقا "نحن نرزقك والعاقبة للتقوى»
And enjoin As-Salat (the prayer) on your family, and be patient in offering them
[i.e. the Salat (prayers)].
We ask not of you a provision , We provide for you. And the good end (i.e. Paradise) is for the Muttaqun .

‎*7-التوكل على الله حق توكله* :
*Putting our trust in Allah as he should be trusted*
As is mentioned in a Hadith
‎«لو توكلتم على الله حق توكله لرزقكم كما يرزق الطير، تغدو خماصا"وتروح بطانا"»
If you trust Allah as he should be trusted , he will sustain you as he provides for the birds, they leave hungry in search for food and return full.

‎*8-الاستغفار*:
*Seeking Repentance*
Making lots of Istighfaar.

‎والاستغفار بحد ذاته مصدر للرزق ،
And Istighfaar on its own is a means of Increasing our sustenance
‎كما قال نبينا صلى الله عليه وسلم
Just as Nabi ﷺ said:
Whoever makes Istighfaar Allah will make a way out of every difficult situation for him,
And he will ease his sorrow, and he will sustain him from where he perceives not.
‎«من لزم الاستغفار جعل الله له من كل ضيق مخرجا " ومن كل هم فرجا" ورزقه من حيث لا يحتسب»

‎متعنا الله وإيّاكم بالبركة والرضا
May Allah bless us with lots of barakah and contentment.

LOCK YOUR DOORS

🌸☘🌸☘🌸☘🌸☘🌸☘

_*DEAR PARENTS, PLEASE LOCK YOUR DOORS BETWEEN MAGHRIB AND ESHAA

_AS dusk is Approaching, this knowledge will be very beneficial to every parent who wishes no harm to their household, Inshaa Allah_

_The prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم said:_

_*”After the sun sets, Hold on to your kids, as the Devils are spreading at that time.*_
_*After an hour has gone past you can let them go,*_
_*But keep your doors closed while making Dhikr* (saying Bismillah), *as the Devil does not open a closed door*_
_*And close any water bottle, while making Dhikr and put the lid on any pan while making Dhikir, even if you cover them with anything and turn your lights off”*_

🌹 *SOURCE:* *```Al-Bukhari  #3280 and Muslim #2012```*

_The prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم said:_

_*”Do not send your kids or animals* (such as sheep, cattle or camels) *after the sun sets, until the darkness of Eshaa falls, As the devils are being discharged between those times”*_

🌹 *SOURCE:* *```Muslim #2013```*

💡 *You might be asking yourself:*

*```“What could possibly be the reason behind this❓```*
*```What happens between Maghreb and Eshaa❓”```*

_Well, what happens is that the Shayateen (devils) start to look for a place to hide, as they move around earth in large numbers, Only Allah knows how many and they move in extremely fast speed, much faster than we can imagine._

_This of course poses a threat to some as they might get crushed by other devils. So they start looking for a place to hide._

_The Hadeeth is explaining to us what the devils might do in their search for a safe place to hide:_

_Some of them might enter a bottle and stay there until it’s safe,_
_Some might hide in a saucepan, or a bucket and some might enter the house of a human._

_A Shaytwaan might hide behind a group of humans who are unaware of this._

_With those humans not making any Dhikr the Shaytaan is safe from the crushing power of other Shayateen roaming the Earth like a hurricane._

_It is in the nature of Shayateen to hide in dirty places, such as toilets, rubbish bins…etc._

_They might also get into a child who doesn’t know yet how to make Dhikr  and stay inside that child until it’s safe to get out._

_The parents of that child might notice a sudden change of mood in their child’s behaviour._

_The parents might think that the child needs to be disciplined when the child might cry as he/she is bothered by the Shayateen in his body._

_One of the biggest attractions to Shayateen is nappies, as it’s dirty and it belongs to a child who doesn’t know yet how to make Tahseen (prevention from Devils by reading Qur'an and making Du'a)._

🌹 _Therefore we remind Muslims to be careful and not to let their doors open between Maghrib and Isha._

_They also should read Qur'an aloud around their children to prevent Shayateen from seeking refuge in their tiny bodies._

_*May Allah protect us all from Shayateen andm prevent them from harming our children…*_

*```Aameen```* please share this message with others who may benefit

The Grapes Story ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ‡

Me: How much for a kilo ..??
Seller: kilo R80 .. sir

There were some loose grapes on the other corner of the cart.. 🍇🍇

Me: what's the price for these ..??
Seller: kilo R30 only ..sir

He was selling the loose ones at very less price...
When asked the same he said;
they are also good but they have separated from the bunch.. 🍇🍇

Similarly..,
When we are separated from our relations , friends and family our value and strength decreases too. 🍇🍇

๐Ÿ’ŽTopic*The Importance of dua* ๐Ÿ”ฆ๐Ÿ’ก ๐Ÿ’•"A real life story *"


My mother will never be able to walk...!!!!

This is his story.....
I was a little boy, in grade 3 and my mother was expecting. .....
During her pregnancy, she lost her ability to walk, and the cause for this was unknown.

My sorrow was greater than my little shoulders could carry. When people helped her this affected me so badly and made me so sad that I wanted to hit something and scream.

Everyday when I returned from school, I used to sit besides her and I felt pity for her,
I felt helpless, completely defeated and disheartened about my mothers destiny.

And one day during a Deen lesson my teacher told us the story of Ayyoob عليه السلام She told us about his sickness and trial that he was patient with for 18 years  and then he made this dua and was cured.

*: رب إني مسنيَ الضرّ وأنت أرحم الراحمين*"

I memorised this dua, my heart filled with yaqeen - faith in Allah when I was a little child. When I returned home that day I sat next to my mother...... 
He says: "I can still picture that day.... the Rays of light that came in through the window ....
I remember that I was wearing my uniform and I remember the corner in which I sat"

Inthen related the story of Ayyoob عليه السلام
to my mother and I thought she did not know it ...
I told her about the dua as a glad tidings for her. I said to her,
"Allah will most certainly cure you as he cured his Nabi Ayyoob عليه السلام when he made this dua!

I am quite positive that my mother knew the story of Ayoob عليه السلام ..... she repeated the dua with me, and then I felt tranquility descend upon my heart and I started to wait for a miracle.
After a few days my aunt came across an article that explained.....
a severe deficiency of Vitamin B can be a cause of a woman losing the ability to walk during her pregnancy"

My mother came to know the reason
She got better......
She got cured ......
And she started walking again!!!

This dua and the faith in it reached the depths of my heart
"I always make this dua when I am in the saddest state :

* وأنت أرحم الراحمين*
*And you are most merciful*

But I want to say something very important
After my mother was cured and I grew up
Whenever I experienced a story with a happy ending I said:

أقول ألم يكن الله حينها في تلك الظهيرة
أرحم الراحمين ؟

Wasn't Allah most merciful when we were going through the most difficult time of our lives ....

even if our sorrows are so great we must say:

(وانت ارحم الراحمين).
Because he will most certainly have mercy on you like no one else can"

Akhawaati fillah❤
Whenever you feel sad
Say:
"وأنت أرحم الراحمين"

You will be surprised to find that his mercy for you is greater than your mercy on yourself .

*Memorize this dua and hold it like a treasure for your hearts**And recite it with complete faith in Allah*

رب إنّي مسني الضر وأنت أرحم الراحمين "
Rabbi inni massaniyad durru wa Anta arhamur raahimeen.

This is not just a fairy tale, it is a true story for us to take lesson from.

If his mother had remembered this dua before He told her she would have been cured earlier.

*Now I am reminding you of this dua so that you can be granted shifa from all your ailments and sorrows*


رب إنّي مسني الضر وأنت أرحم الراحمين "
Rabbi inni massaniyad durru wa Anta arhamur raahimeen. 🌸

Allah says in verse 117, Surah al Baqarah

بَدِيعُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَإِذَا قَضَىٰ أَمْرًا فَإِنَّمَا يَقُولُ لَهُ كُن فَيَكُونُ

The Originator of the heavens and the earth. When He decrees a matter, He only says to it: "*Be!" - and it is*.

سبحن ربي الأعلى
He has the ability to make what we think as impossible, possible
*Never give up hope in the mercy of Allah*

May Allah SWT grant us Aafiyat through each of our tests and grant us a high level of  tawakkul and make us of those who never lose hope in his mercy. *For surely Allah gives us as we expect of him*

ان يك صوابا فمن الله، وإن يكن خطأ فمني ومن الشيطان)
💖بارك الله فيكم ونفع بِنَا  جميع المسلمين🌺
لا تنسونا في دعواتكم ❤

2 TBS mayonnaise
2 TBS garlic sauce
1 cup milk
1/4 cup fresh cream

180 ° C

LOW carb bread

Ingredients:

1 cup of seeds (I buy the mixed seed pack that has pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, sesame seeds.)
*If you don't want the crunch of the seeds (seed loaf), you can mill them in a food processor/Nutribullet so that it becomes like flour and this gives the texture of a normal bread loaf.
1 cup of almond flour
60ml of psyllium husk
10ml of baking powder
5ml of salt
6 eggs
1 cup of full cream plain yoghurt
Wax baking paper
Baking tin

Method:

Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees.
Mix all the dry ingredients together... the flour, the seeds, the psyllium husk, the baking powder and the salt together.
Add the 6 eggs and mix.

Add the yoghurt and mix.

Line your baking tin with wax paper and pour the mixture in. If you have extra seeds, sprinkle them on top.

Pop it into the oven for 50-55 minutes. Be prepared for your home to fill with the delicious fresh bread baking smell.
Stick a cake tester in to see that it's done and then slice up and spread fresh farm butter on and enjoy!
PS. It's really filling.

*LOOKING SEXY AND DRESSED TO KILL*

The following conversation took place between a grandmother and her grand-daughter .

*Grandma:* Zainab, where are you going?

*Zainab:* Grandma, I am going to School .

*Grandma*: Really? Please come and sit down and let's talk for a minute before you go. I think we still have ample time before the Lecture begins? Don't we?

*Zainab*: Yes, about an hour.

*Grandma*: The way you are dressed, in fact, you look very sexy.

*Zainab*: (Smiling😄😄😄) Thank you very much ma.

*Grandma*: Hmmmm, Zainab, I can see you love that compliment. Please tell me, do you need someone to have sex with you?

*Zainab*: Ooh, noo! Grandma. Why this question?

*Grandma*: If you do not need someone to have sex with you, then, why do you dress *'sexy'*?

*Zainab*: There's nothing to worry about, Grannie. I just want to....

*Grandma*: (cuts in)... dressed to kill, as usual! Zainab, a Godly girl should never feel proud or swollen-headed when someone tells her that she *looks 'sexy'*. In fact, it's a very bad and insulting compliment.

The intention of dressing sexy is to arouse men, That's all. That's the reason why prostitutes dress this way. They dress this way because they want someone to have sex with them and pay them. They do everything possible to *'look sexy'* and attractive - not to just one person, but *to the entire men in town!*

They expose their breasts, they wear things that will reveal all their endowed curves -- and even private parts of their body -- JUST to *look sexy* and attractive to men, so that they will not rest until they have a carnal knowledge of them, for money. Please, Zainab, are you also trying to look that way so that you will be attractive to men for sex?

Zainab looked down, and was speechless.

*Grandma*: (continues) This is the reason why you are not getting a husband. Do you still wonder why suitable suitors rush to take you to bed.... then, after saying *'you are hot,'* they dump you? They feel that you cannot stay with *'one man'* alone. Do you now realise that I, your grandma, am not the one using witchcraft against you?

You are young, fit and attractive, although you are a Muslim yet you always look so worldly. When you dress like this to School, the probability of bringing even the lecturer down is very high. But remember that *'woe betide the one by whom a righteous man is made to fall...'* I know you can remember this scripture very well. Well, my beloved grand-daughter, I am done. You can now go.

*Zainab*: Thank you very much, Grandma. I have never looked at it like this before. From today onwards, I promise never to dress again *to look sexy*. I will rather dress to *please Allah (SWT)* and *glorify Allah* with my dressing. Thank you very much ma.

*Grandma*: You are welcome, my dear.

(Seeing that Zainab started going towards her room, she said). But, are you not going to school anymore?

*Zainab*: I will go Grannie. I just want to change my dress, first.

*Grandma*: May God bless you for doing that.

Please pass on to the females in our lives including wives, daughters, sisters, nieces, cousins, next door neighbours, friends, etc.

Most *sexy looking girls* do not have someone to tell them the truth. Encourage them to read and react to it -- just as Zainab did -- because *We Are Addressed The Way We Dress*.

Let us dress right to reflect the Godliness in our lives.

๐ŸŽฏNine lessons from Surah Hujrah


"When a glass is broken, the sound of breaking disappears immediately whereas the glass pieces are scattered over the ground hurting whoever walks over it".
Similarly, "when you say something that hurts people's emotions and feelings, the voice disappears immediately but the heart remains in pain for long."
Therefore, don't say anything except good and remember always the nine advises and prohibitions that Allah Almighty gave us in Suratul Hujuraat..before you say something to anyone:
1.-فتبينوا:
"Fa Tabayyanu": Investigate: when you receive an information, lest you harm people out of ignorance.
2.-فأصلحوا:
"Fa Aslihu": Make settlement: between your brothers as believers are brothers.
3.-وأقسطوا:
"Wa Aqsitu": Act justly: whenever there is a dispute try for settlement and act justly among both parties as Allah loves those who act justly.
4.-لا يسخر:
"La Yaskhar": Don't ridicule people, perhaps they may be better than you to Allah.
5.-ولا تلمزوا:
"Wa La Talmizu": Don't insult one another.
6.-ولا تنابزوا:
"Wa La Tanabazu": Don't call each other with offensive nicknames.
7.-اجتنبو كثيرا من الظن:
"Ijtanibu Kathiiran min Aldhan": Avoid negative assumptions, indeed some of the assumptions are sins.
8.-ولا تجسسوا:
"Wa La Tajassasu": Don't spy on each other.
9.-ولا يغتب بعضكم بعضا:
"Wa La Yaghtab": Don't backbite each other. Its a major sin equivalent to eating your dead brother's flesh.
Lastly Allah said in the Qur'an "Remind, for the reminder benefits believers".
*May Allah continue to Bless and Guide us in all our affairs*. Ameen

Love stories from the Qur'aan


Today's Beautiful Hadith is about Beautiful Mercy




Abu Hurairah reported the Prophet (peace be upon him) as saying; Our Lord gets down every night to the heaven of this world when a third night remains and says: (Is there anyone) who prays to Me so that I may accept his prayer? (Is there anyone) who asks of Me so that I may give him? (Is there anyone) who asks for my forgiveness so that I may forgive him? (Sunan an Dawud Book 41, Hadith 4715)

This is astonishingly beautiful. Allah is encouraging us to make dua to Him. He understands we are human and make mistakes, all He wants is for us to reach out to Him. How Merciful. Please read this Hadith 2-3 times and you will see how truly beautiful, blessed, wonderful Allah's Mercy truly is. Don't forget to say Alhamdulillah today :)
