Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, truly forgiving others can be a daunting task. Some people never learn to forgive while others say it, but don’t mean it. My dearest sisters and brothers when we forgive others we only help ourselves. Our hearts get lightened, and our souls have peace.

May Allaah forgive us and help us forgive others. Ameen.

divorce seems to be on the rise for people everywhere

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, divorce seems to be on the rise for people everywhere. In Islaam this should be the last resort to ending a marriage. A couple should do all that they can to make the marriage work especially if there are children involved, unless the situation is dangerous or doesn’t permit it.

In Islaam if one should get divorced they should do so with the best manners, respect and dignity, as this is what the Prophet (Sallahe Alhee Wa Sallam) has taught us.

Lastly, once the divorce has taken place the man whom the woman divorced becomes a Non-Mahram, and vice versa. They are not to be alone anymore, they are not to joke around like before, etc. They are to be respectful and to stay away from each other.

The family of the one who has gone through the divorce should treat the woman or man who has been divorced from their family with respect but stay away from them. When the family of the woman talks to the man whom she has divorced or vice versa, it hurts the other person. We need to stay away from hurting others. Feelings and emotions are important to notice and to understand in Islaam. If we don’t care about how we make others feel, then Allaah may punish us, our kids or even grandkids in the way we punished others. Subhana’Allaah, we should always be aware of what we are doing and know that today we are doing it, tomorrow it may happen to us. So if you don’t want it to happen to you, then don’t do it to others.

May Allaah guide us all to goodness and make us amongst the righteous. Ameen. May He make our eman strong and help us do the right thing when circumstances expect it. Ameen.

life isn’t about preaching life is about teaching with our actions

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, life isn’t about preaching life is about teaching with our actions…when we do what we want others to do then in’sha’Allaah we will be successful.

Truly there is no price on righteousness. Weather your rich or poor, you understand it. Weather your educated or ignorant you understand it. Weather your a child or an adult you understand it…..the problem is doing what is right and staying away from what is wrong…

One character that the majority of us need to work on is Not Lying anymore. We need to quit lying to our spouses, our parents, our children, our bosses, our friends, and family. We need to tell the truth even if it may be against us. Only then will we be successful…Ya Rabbe may you make us amongst the truthful! Ameen. Ya Rabbe may you make us amongst the Righteous! Ameen.

The Prophet Muhammad (Sallahe Alhee Wa Sallam) said:

Weeping out of fear from Allah

552246333

“Weeping out of fear from Allah is the proof of our faith and sensing its sweetness. Therefore, Mighty Allah rejected those who laughed while listening to the Quraan and did not cry. So He says: “Then at this statement do you wonder? (59). And you laugh and do not weep” [An-Najm: 59-60]

Ibn Katheer said in his interpretation: Then the Mighty Allah denies the way the disbelievers listen to the Quraan, their negligence and messing around and says: {Then at this statement do you wonder} He wonders how could this be true, {And you laugh} out of mocking and irony {and do not weep} as the believers do, and he describes them “And they fall upon their faces weeping, and it [i.e., the Quran increases them in humble submission” [Al Israa 17:109].

Your imaan is not stagnant, rather it increases and decreases with time, dependant on the condition of your heart and your actions. With continual beneficial reminders of Allah and His greatness, and by reading the Quran and implementing it in our daily lives, our faith can be increased. On the other hand, faith is decreased by the lack of reminders of Allah, abandoning the Quran and Sunnah, and following actions that do not please Allah.

Ibn Abbas narrated: “Once the Prophet (ﷺ) embraced me and said, ‘O Allah! Bestow on him the knowledge of the Book.’” (Bukhari, 75)

It is through knowing our Lord, Allah the Most High, that our heart finds peace and is filled with happiness in its devotion to Allah. By submitting ourselves to Allah, the Lord of all that exists, we lift the burdens of life off our own shoulders and then place our trust in Allah. With this submission and trust in Allah comes true contentment, deep tranquility, and peacefulness within ourselves, for worshipping Allah is the purpose He created us.

When our heart is lacking understanding of it’s Creator, our submission to Him is weakened, therefore true happiness cannot be obtained. If we desire happiness, then we should seek out knowledge of Allah, our Creator, we will then find that worries, sadness, and misery will leave us. Furthermore gaining this knowledge of Allah, can increase our faith in Him too.

رَبَّنَا لاَ تُزِغْ قُلُوبَنَا بَعْدَ إِذْ هَدَيْتَنَا وَهَبْ لَنَا مِن لَّدُنكَ رَحْمَةً إِنَّكَ أَنتَ الْوَهَّابُ

“Our Lord, let not our hearts deviate after You have guided us and grant us from Yourself mercy. Indeed, You are the Bestower.” (Quran, 3:8)
