We often run after the money, the houses, the cars, the degrees

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, we often run after the money, the houses, the cars, the degrees, and forget about our salah’s, reciting the Qur’aan, taking care of our parents, and the needy, take part in spreading the (true) message of Allah and time for spenting, taking count of our ownself. This verse is a great reminder for myself and all of us to make sure we don’t neglect the important things that count…..

Since I learned the truth in Mecca- – ‪#‎MalcolmX‬

“Since I learned the truth in Mecca, my dearest friends have come to include all kinds — some Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, agnostics, and even atheists! I have friends who are called capitalists, Socialists, and Communists! Some of my friends are moderates, conservatives, extremists — some are even Uncle Toms! My friends today are black, brown, red, yellow, and white!”

Quote of the day!! Amazing words.. allahu akbar

You cannot hide from Allah, although I’ve worked with many coaching clients who have tried. Let me explain…

You cannot hide from Allah, although I’ve worked with many coaching clients who have tried. Let me explain…

Rationally, you understand that you can’t hide from Allah, and you believe that He knows and sees everything.

But on an emotional level, and even a spiritual level, many people attempt to say all the “right things” to Allah, and never open up their hearts to Him.

Afraid to address their fears, their wounds, their doubts, they make du’a year in and year out, but from an almost empty place.

You could sit at the feet of the best and most humble scholar on the earth and take very little from him because you are not able to authentically speak to Allah when you pray or call out to Him.

We need Allah, and we need to learn how vulnerable in front of Him by our own choosing.

There is no barrier, no wall, no costume you have between you and Him except for the one you construct.

Take it down. And speak.

14377_862168577139990_1686229270817646315_n~ There is Allah, and there is your own self [nafsuka], and you must address the situation. The self is the opponent and enemy of Allah. All things are subordinate to Allah, and the self really belongs to Him as a creature and a possession, but the self entertains presumptions and aspirations bound up with carnal appetite and sensual desire. So if you ally yourself with the divine Truth in opposition and hostility toward the self, you will be for Allah’s sake an adversary to your own self. As Allah (Almighty and Glorious is He) said to David (peace be upon him): “O David, I am your indispensable support, so hold fast to your support. True servitude means being an adversary to your own self.”

Shaykh Sayyid Abdul Qadir Jilani (Ghawth al Adham)

———-

~ Polytheism [shirk] is not merely the worship of idols. It is also polytheism to yield to your own passionate desire, and to equate with your Lord anything whatsoever besides Him, be it of this world and its contents or of the Hereafter and what is contained therein. What is besides Him (Almighty and Glorious is He) is other than He, so when you rely on anything other than Him you are associating something else with Him (Almighty and Glorious is He). Therefore be wary and do not relax your guard, be fearful and do not develop a sense of security, and keep your wits about you so that you do not become careless and complacent.

Shaykh Sayyid Abdul Qadir Jilani

———-

“Leave everything and cleave to love! Turn your heart from all else; feel love in your whole being! Take love as your guide to the land of being so that you may reach the True Beloved, enter the Paradise of God’s essence, behold the beauty of the Friend, gather the roses of the garden of Union. In the way of love, the lover sacrifices himself but finds the dear one. All the saints who have drunk of the wine of love have sacrificed themselves thus in the way of love.”

~Sheikh Muzaffer Ozak al-Jerrahi~

———-

“Often love between two people intensifies not because of beauty or some advantage, but because of sheer spiritual affinity.”

~ Imam al Ghazali

———-

~Step out of your own self and keep your distance from it. Practice detachment from your possessiveness, and surrender everything to Allah. Become His doorman at the door of your heart, obeying His command by admitting those He instructs you to admit, and respecting His prohibition by shutting out those He instructs you to turn away, so that you do not let passion back into your heart once it has been evicted.

Shaykh Sayyid Abdul Qadir Jilani (Ghawth al Adham)

———-

If My servants ask you about Me, I am near. I answer the call of the caller when he [or she] calls upon Me. They should, therefore, respond to Me and believe in Me so that, hopefully, they will be rightly guided. (Surat al-Baqara, 186)

———-

~The life of the heart is knowledge; so preserve it, The death of the heart is ignorance; so avoid it. Your best provision is true devotion; so provide it. This advice of mine is enough for you; so heed it.

– Imam al-Ghazâlî

———-

To advise others is an easy matter, the difficulty is accepting advice, since it is bitter for those who follow their own inclinations and desires.

Imam al-Ghazali

———-

Never assume that anyone in this world can really understand your own circumstances other than from the perspective of his own circumstances.

Shaykh Ahmad al Zarruq

All the doors to God are crowded except for one: the door of humility and humbleness.

“Don’t criticize the faults of people, even if it is clear and seen. Look with the eye of perfection. Don’t find fault with anyone.”

Shaykh Abu Madyan Shu‘ayb al-Maghrabī

Your hand opens and closes and opens and closes. If it were always a fist or always stretched open, you would be paralyzed.

~  “Knowledge combined with action is profitable and action without knowledge does not benefit anything.” Sayyiduna Uthman al-Ghani

———-

“The past is an interpretation. The future is an illusion. The world does not move through time as if it were a straight line, proceeding from the past to the future. Instead time moves through and within us, in endless spirals. Eternity does not mean infinite time, but simply timelessness. If you want to experience eternal illumination, put the past and the future out of your mind and remain within the present moment.” – Shams Tabriz

More Love, Less Hatred

Not one day passes without us hearing about Muslims killing each other. The killer says, “Allahu akbar” and the one being killed says: “La ilaha ill’Allah.” Other people think they can draw close to Allah by leveling insults at each other. There is so much hatred in the Ummah. There is no love in people’s hearts.

They say to us: “All you do is talk about loving Allah and the Prophet. Meanwhile people are being killed.” They do not realize that love is the foundation of the religion. If you do not have love you do not truly have Islam.

Habib Ali Jifri

———-

The bodily attributes are exposed to corruption; the everlasting spirit is a shining sun,

Incorruptible, for it is not of the east; unchangeable, for it is not of the west.
How was the sun (ever) dumbfounded by a mote? How was the candle (ever) made senseless by a moth?

Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi

———-

the purpose of prayer is not standing, bowing and prostrating all day, for those moments of spiritual union that possess you in prayer should always be with you..

Rumi

———-

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said, “I am the closest of all people to Jesus, son of Mary, in this world and the Hereafter; for all prophets are brothers, with different mothers but one religion.”

(Al-Bukhari)

———-

The insight of the righteous man [salih] is indicative of his spiritual state [hal]. When someone really knows [‘arafa] Allah, his tongue falls silent; he is free from want because of Him, and of Him alone he is in need.

Ghawth al Adham

———-

~  ‘If something is meant to go elsewhere, it will never come your way. But if it yours by destiny, from you it cannot flee.

To completely trust in God is to be like child who deeply knows that even if he does not call for his mother, the mother is totally aware of his condition and is looking after him.’ –

Imam Abu Hamid al-Ghazali

———-

“This deen is not about titles, and it’s not about looks. It’s not about the imamahs. Just so you know, Abu Lahab had an imamah and had also a big beard as well.

The Deen is about two things, (1) ‘ilm in the Book and the Authentic Sunna, and (2) the practice thereof. Again, ‘ilm, ‘ilm not jahil, not stories, not story telling. Not fairy tales and Alice in Wonderland stuff. No no no no no! ‘Ilm in the Book and the Authentic Sunna, then the application thereof.

‘Ilm is Dahir, the application is Bâtin.”

— Sayyidî Shaykh Dr. Muhammad bin Yahya al-Husayni al-Ninowy

———-

Useful knowledge is that which makes you grow in the fear of Allah subhanahu wa ta alaa, increases you in awareness of your defects, deepens your knowledge of the worship of your Lord, decreases your desire for this world, increases your desire for the life to come, and opens your eyes to the defects of your actions so that you guard against them.

Imam Ghazali

Developing a Muslim identity is not just about how we look

10690255_857281194310781_5118111991168140345_n

Developing a Muslim identity is not just about how we look. It is about how we behave; Our character includes good deeds and patience!

[103:2] Indeed, mankind is in loss,
[103:3] Except for those who have believed and done righteous deeds and advised each other to truth and advised each other to patience.

Peace of mind, body and spirit is what ‪#‎Islam‬ brings to those who understand.

Peace of mind, body and spirit is what ‪#‎Islam‬ brings to those who understand.

The very first command to the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him was “Iqra”, “Read!”

The very first command to the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him was “Iqra”, “Read!”

Many of us fail at even some of the most basic acts in life simply because we do not “READ!”

The semantics of the linguistic aspects of read vs recite I personally do not feel are important especially if it distracts us from the far more important detail behind the incident. The point of the experience for Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him was that he was commanded to repeat a message that he would share with all mankind, which Ameer Akhtar mentioned in his post above, is that the message was not simply a command to blindly repeat what was being revealed (read/recite). It was a command to understand what what was being revealed based on our God given ability to reason an to use that reason to apply the message based on correct understanding. We get that correct understanding from the Qur’an and the example of our Prophet through his authentic sunnah. in shaa’Allah

I remember a time in my life where I didn’t have big dreams..

10734103_893735370650624_305880419995771279_n

I remember a time in my life where I didn’t have big dreams. In fact, I wasn’t really dreaming at all. I lived day-to-day, looking for ways to meet my own needs of significance or love.

I had no idea what I really wanted in my life, and if I did, I was afraid to chart my own course to make it happen. The first day I realized that I was following the aspirations of those around me, instead of my own, I was in shock. I drove around for several hours, up and down the coast looking to get lost somewhere fast, with no direction to go in at all.

The drive was a good metaphor for my life. talk a lot about “dreaming big” and making big goals, but few people talk about the other side of that equation.

Most of us, as children have big dreams, expansive imaginations, and energy and hope that could fuel a spaceship to Mars.

The problem wasn’t the inability to dream big – the problem was about the beliefs, fears, and negative voices that became so loud, that the mind could no longer dream, or take action.

Dreaming big is exciting. Dreaming big, and making massive goals and never achieving them is depressing.

So what changed?

I did. I began to put myself into environments and experiences which would force me to stand on my own two feet. Instead of living through the accomplishments or success of others, I committed to creating my own.

Owning who I truly wanted to be. Not what a degree on the wall said, not what people expected, not what was comfortable and easy, like a costume I could slip into.

I wanted to own my vision, and with the help of Allah, seeking His pleasure, I starting taking those baby steps towards change.

This is where my coaching career began.

(continued via sister, Megan Wyatt)

❝I worshiped Allah for 50 years and did not find the sweetness of worship until I left off three things:

❝I worshiped Allah for 50 years and did not find the sweetness of worship until I left off three things:

1 – seeking the pleasure of people so I was able to speak the truth.
2 – befriending immoral people so I was able to befriend the righteous.
3 – delights of this worldly life so I was able to find the delights of the next life.❞

— Ahmad b. Harb (d. 234h) Siyar ‘Alam an-Nubala

Awesome advice!!

He had never prayed two rak`ah in his adult life. Born and raised in Egypt, he had heard the athan rolling through the streets, calling the believers to prayer,but he had never voluntarily accepted the call. He spent little time with his family; his routine usually consisted of work, chillin at the hookah cafe with his friends, and then eventually going home.

On one Friday, he was suddenly hit by a novel idea. “Why don’t I just try Friday prayer today, just to see what it’s like?” He came in late to the masjid and the Khatib was already speaking. As the man was looking for a place to sit, he heard the words of the Khatib in fragments, “Two words…beloved… to God.”

The man lost complete focus on the rest of the khutbah, working hard to make sense of what the words could possibly mean.

After the prayer, he approached the Khatib directly and asked for him to tell him what the words signified. The Khatib smiled in recognition. “Yes, those are in fact from a blessed hadith (narration) from The Prophet himself ﷺ. He told us:

كلمتان خفيفتان على اللسان ، ثقيلتان في الميزان، حبيبتان إلى الرحمن: سبحان الله وبحمده، سبحان الله العظيم

“Two words are light on the tongue, heavy in the balance, beloved to the Merciful: ‘Glory be to God and by His praise. Glory be to God, the Immense.’” (Bukhari)

The man stood, overwhelmed, awestruck, in a daze. He walked out of the masjid in a trance and left for his home. Upon entering, he gathered his wife and children. “Have you heard,” he began to tell them, “the words of the Prophet ﷺ? He has told us:

كلمتان خفيفتان على اللسان ، ثقيلتان في الميزان، حبيبتان إلى الرحمن: سبحان الله وبحمده، سبحان الله العظيم

“Two words are light on the tongue, heavy in the balance, beloved to the Merciful: ‘Glory be to Allah and by His praise. Glory be to Allah, the Immense.’”

From that moment, the man transformed. From his home, he would leave to work, from his work, he would go straight to the Masjid, and from the Masjid, he would immediately go back home to spend time with his wife and kids. All the while, two words kept his lips moving and his tongue wet with remembrance, “Subhan Allahi wa bihamdi, Subhan Allah il-`atheem.”

His friends noticed his absence. They came to his apartment one day to figure out where he’d been. A wistful look came over the man’s face. “Haven’t you heard?” He replied to his old crew. “The Prophet ﷺ has told us:

كلمتان خفيفتان على اللسان ، ثقيلتان في الميزان، حبيبتان إلى الرحمن: سبحان الله وبحمده، سبحان الله العظيم

“Two words are light on the tongue, heavy in the balance, beloved to the Merciful: ‘Glory be to Allah and by His praise. Glory be to Allah, the Immense.’”

Soon, he fell ill. It had only been a few months since he had gone to the masjid, since he had first heard the beloved words of the Prophet ﷺ by the Khatib in a Jumu`ah (Friday) khutbah. He told his son to go and to ask the Masjid administration to call upon that very Khatib to come visit him in his illness.

When he was informed, the Khatib remembered the man immediately and rushed to his apartment. Upon being let in, he saw the man was sleeping so he sat at the foot of the bed and waited for the man to awaken. Finally, the man stirred.

The man looked at the Khatib and asked him, “Have you heard? The Prophet ﷺ has told us:

كلمتان خفيفتان على اللسان ، ثقيلتان في الميزان، حبيبتان إلى الرحمن: سبحان الله وبحمده، سبحان الله العظيم

“Two words are light on the tongue, heavy in the balance, beloved to the Merciful: ‘Glory be to Allah and by His praise. Glory be to Allah, the Immense.’”

With that, the man passed away.

The Khatib in this story is the teacher of my teacher. My teacher related this incident to me and continued to stress that it wasn’t a story from books of the past, it wasn’t a story coined to tug hearts, it was the true story of a man who was disconnected from God, but who God blessed with finding Him through the blessed words of the Prophet (peace be upon him).

Find one thing that helps you connect to God. Cling onto it. Others may make you feel insecure in your relationship with Him. You may feel judged and isolated from the community sometimes. He will never isolate you from Him when He knows you seek Him. Find His beauty in something that will connect you to Him, cling onto it, and slowly, like this man, grow closer to Him through that process.

And what you get out of life is in direct proportion to what you contribute to it. You choose the attitude you are going to embrace and convey each day.

Quote of the day

Shaykh ash-Shanqeeti (may Allah have mercy on him) said:
If the scholars of Islam affirm that the earth is round, then what would they say about the verse in which Allah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning):
“Do they not look at the camels, how they are created?…
And at the heaven, how it is raised?
And at the mountains, how they are rooted and fixed firm?
And at the earth, how it is spread out?”
[al-Ghaashiyah 88:17-20].
Their response will be the same as their response concerning the verse in which Allah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning): “Until, when he reached the setting place of the sun, he found it setting in a spring of black muddy (or hot) water” [al-Kahf 18:86] – that is, as it appears to be in the eye of the beholder, because the sun sets on one country, but remains up in the sky for another, until it rises from the east on the following morning. So the earth looks flat in every region or part of it, because of its immense size.
This does not contradict its real shape, because we may see a very high mountain, but if we climb it and reach its summit we may find a flat surface there, and find an entire nation living there, and some of the people there may not know anything about the rest of the world, and so on. End quote.

The one who created you, Understands you best

1380307_743458462335489_1684873301_n“it may be that you dislike a thing while it is good for you, and it may be that you love a thing while it is evil for you; and Allah knows while you know not.” [Quran 2:216]

The lover of this world…

1184863_664468870247516_752313635_nThe lover of this world is like the lover of a wall on which the sunbeams strike, who makes no effort and exertion to perceive that the radiance and splendour do not proceed from the wall, but from the orb of the sun in the Fourth Heaven; consequently he sets his whole heart on the wall, and when the sunbeams rejoin the sun (at sunset), he is left for ever in despair, and a bar is placed between them and that which they desire. ~

How can your heart reach the closeness to Allah?

1170849_10151686903789807_2003436763_n“How can your heart reach the closeness to Allah when everything in your heart is filled with the images of the creation. You have to empty the heart first. Empty your heart from other than Allah !

Empty your heart, dump it from everything else and then fill it with the love of Allah . Allah will give you everything in there.”

Sayyidi Shaykh Dr. Muhammad bin Yahya al-Husayni al Ninowy

Happiness- Quote

1170753_432916213487526_1355301584_n“Happiness. We speak of happiness. We spend our lives looking for it as if it’s our goal. I say no, happiness,entu if evally found, is a mode, an emotion on our journey, but never the destination. Happy or unhappy, you are heading for the grave. Are you sure that happiness in this life is what will benefit you in the afterlife?”

~ Shaykh Badruddin Yahya

Two types of hidden matters

14159_633134040053859_1477757042_nThere are two types of hidden matters:
(1) that which is hidden from you and (2) that which you have hidden yourself from.

As that which is hidden from you is the Paradise, the Hell-Fire, the angels, the damsels of Paradise, the act of resurrection and that which comes after it. All of those things are hidden from you and you believe in them.

The second type of hidden matters is that which you have hidden yourself from O-servant! and that is the Ḥaḍra (presence) of Allāh-Taʿālā. The Ḥaḍra of Allāh-Taʿālā is not absent; it is omnipresent and closer to you than anything else. If you fail to find this Ḥaḍra, then you are the one who is absent, not the Ḥaḍra.~

Quote of the day

“Some people worship God to gain His blessings: this is the worship of merchants. Some people worship Him to avoid his punishment: this is the worship of slaves. Some worship Him solely to show gratitude towards Him: this is the worship of the free!”

Habib Ali al-Jifri

Neither stress nor cause stress. Or at least TRY not to stress. If stressing solved any issues believe me we’d all be required to do so.

Knowledge without Action – Quote

All knowledge without action is meaningless; all knowledge and action without intention is worthless; all knowledge, action and intention not in accordance with the Sunnah is rejected; all knowledge, action and intention in accordance with the Sunnah without scrupulousness is at risk of coming to nothing.

– Shaykh ‘Abd al-Rahman al-Saqqaf

Quranic verse of the day

Surah Yaseen (36:77-79)
Does man not see that We created him of a spermdrop, and lo! he is flagrantly contentious?
He strikes for Us a similitude and
forgot his own creation. He says: “Who will quicken the bones when they have
decayed?”
Say: “He Who first brought them into being will quicken them;
He knows well about every kind of creation.
