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.

The word Tatfeef refers to diminishing quantities when weighing or measuring. In other words, "cheating"
The nation of shuaib ุนู„ู‰ hissalaam started the evil practice of cheating in weighing and measuring. Despite his efforts to reform them, the people refused to listen. So Allah's punishment destroyed them
We must take great heed in our daily life, because cheating has become widespread in our ummah.
Tatfeef is also found in our daily prayers.
Many cheat in Salaah by not performing the sunnah and witr. Omitting in this is called cheating.
Another form of cheating takes place at work.

True worth

A father before he died said to his son: “this is a watch your grandfather gave and this is more than 200 years old, but before I give it to you go to the watch shop on the first street, and tell him I want to sell it, and see how much it is”. He went and then came back to his father, and said, "the watchmaker paid 5 dollars because it's old”. He said to him : “go to the coffee shop”. He went and then came back, and said: “He paid $5 father”.  “Go to the museum and show that watch”. He went then came back, and said to his father “They offered me a million dollars for this piece”.  The father said: “I wanted to let you know that the right place values your value in a way right, don't put yourself in the wrong place and get angry if you don't. Who knows your value is who appreciates you, don't stay in a place that doesn't suit you".

Know your worth.
