->>From the Glorious Qur’an:
Then woe to those who write the book with their own hands and then say, “This is from Allah”, to purchase with it a little price! Woe to them for what their hands have written and woe to them for that they earn thereby. (Translation of the Holy Qur’an 2:79)

~ Ten Things We Waste ~

1. Our Knowledge – Wasted by not taking action with it.

2. Our Action – Wasted by committing them without sincerity.

3. Our Wealth – Wasted by using on things that will not bring us ajr (Good rewards). We waste our money, our status, our authority, on things which have no benefit in this life or in Akhirah (Hereafter).

4. Our Hearts – Wasted because they are empty from the love of Allah, and the feeling of longing to go to Him, and a feeling of peace and contentment. In it’s place, our hearts are filled with something or someone else.

5. Our Bodies – Wasted because we don’t use them in ibadah (Acts of worship) and service of Allah.

6. Our Love – Our emotional love is misdirected, not towards Allah, but towards something/someone else.

7. Our Time – Wasted; not used properly, to compensate for that which has passed, by doing what is righteous to make up for past deeds

8. Our Intellect – Wasted on things that are not beneficial, that are detrimental to society and the individual, not in contemplation or reflection.

9. Our Service – Wasted in service of someone who will not bring us closer to Allah, or benefit in dunyaa (This world).

10. Our Dhikr (Rememberance of Allah) – Wasted, because it does not effect us or our hearts if not done with total sincerity.

The Oneness of God, Allah (SWT)

The Quran reminds us of the falsity of all alleged gods. To the worshippers of man-made objects, it asks:
“Do you worship what you have carved yourself?” (The Noble Quran 37:95)
“Or have you taken unto you others beside Him to be your protectors, even such as have no power either for good or for harm to themselves?” (The Noble Quran 13:16)
To the worshippers of heavenly bodies it cites the story of Abraham:
“When night outspread over him he saw a star and said, ‘This is my Lord.’ But when it set he said, ‘I love not the setters.’ When he saw the moon rising, he said, ‘This is my Lord.’ But when it set he said, ‘If my Lord does not guide me I shall surely be of the people gone astray.’ When he saw the sun rising, he said, ‘This is my Lord; this is greater.’ But when it set he said, ‘O my people, surely I quit that which you associate, I have turned my face to Him Who originated the heavens and the earth; a man of pure faith, I am not of the idolaters.'” (The Noble 6:76-79)
“If Allah wants to favor someone, He grants him comprehension (understanding) of this religion.”
[Sahih Bukhari vol.1 # 71, Tirmidhi and Musnad Ahmad]
“It is Allah Who has created me, and it is He Who guides me;And when I am ill, it is He who cures me;
“And it is He Who feeds me and gives me to drink…”And Who will cause me to die, and then will bring me to life (again);
“And Who, I hope will forgive me my faults on the Day of Recompense, (the Day of Resurrection)”.
 The Noble Quran, ( Surahالشعراء Al Shuara).
Quote: How is it possible for one’s heart to be certain that one is going to meet Allah, that Allah sees and hears all that he does, and knows his secret open affairs, and that he will be made to stand before Allah, answerable for all his deeds – how can one be certain and aware of all of this, and yet persist upon things which displease Allah; persist upon abandoning Allah’s orders, neglecting His rights, and yet claim that he has good expectation of Allah?
Scholar Name: Ibn Qayyim Al Jawziyyah
“And to ALLAH belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth. And verily, We have recommended to the people of the Scripture before you, and to you (O Muslims) that you (all) fear ALLAH, and keep your duty to Him, But if you disbelieve, then unto ALLAH belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth, and ALLAH is Ever Rich (Free of all wants), Worthy of all praise.”
(The Noble Quran 4:131)
Then learnt Adam from his Lord words of inspiration, and his Lord Turned towards… him; for He is Oft-Returning, Most Merciful. (Chapter #2, Verse #37)
Recite to them the truth of the story of the two sons of Adam. Behold! they each presented a sacrifice (to Allah.: It was accepted from one, but not from the other. Said the latter: “Be sure I will slay thee.” “Surely,” said the former, “(Allah) doth accept of the sacrifice of those who are righteous. (Chapter #5, Verse #27)
‎”Allah the Almighty has said: ‘O son of Adam, so long as you call upon Me, and hope in Me, I shall forgive you for what you have done, and I shall not mind. O son of Adam, were your sins to reach the clouds in the sky and were you then to ask forgiveness of Me, I shall forgive you. O son of Adam, were you to come to Me with an earthful of sins and were you then to face Me, without having associated anything with Me, I shall grant you an earthful of pardon.'” [Al-Tirmidhi]
ALLAH (SWT) Says in the Glorious QURAN: “Call upon me; I will respond to u……”(Holy Quran40:60)
1. Abu hurariah(R.A) narrated that Prophe Muhammad PBUH Saidt: “In the Last third of every night our Rabb (ALLAH SWT) descends to the Lowermost heaven and says: “who is calling me, so that i may answer him” “who is asking me so that may i grant him?
“who is seeking forgiveness from me, so that i may forgive him?
(Sahih Bukhari, & Hadith Qudsi)
2. (Reported by ibn’Abbas & Collected by Tirmidhi) That Prophet  Muhammad(may peace& blessing of Allah be upon him) said:
“If u ask in prayer, ask only ALLAH,& If u seek help, seek it only from Allah.
” ALLAH-HU-AKBAR……
1. When you’re blessed, he is AR-RAHMAN….
2. When you’re hungry. He is AL-RAZZAQ.
3. When you’re honoured. He is AL-MU’IZZ….
4. When you’re weak, he is AL-MOQEET….
5. When u prayed, he is AL-MUJEEB….
6.when you’re gifted, he is AL-KAREEM…..
7. When you’re forgiven, he is AL-GAFOOR…
8. When you’re in the darkness of hopelessness. He is AL-NOOR….
9. When u need a friend, He is AL-WALI……
10.If you’re a sinned, He is AT-TAWWAB….
Hazrat Anas (R.A) reports that the Messenger of Allah (swt) said:

“Whoever says upon leaving from his house: ‘In the name of Allah, I put my trust in Allah. There is no power or might except with Allah,’ it will be said to him: ‘That is sufficient for you…you are guided, defended, and protected and the devil will be driven away from you.”‘

Values of Pious True Muslims, who are close to Allah (swt)

Allah’s Messenger, Prophet Mohammad PBUH said: Allah the Exalted has said:
I will declare war against him who shows hostility to a pious worshiper of Mine.
And the most beloved thing with which My slave on comes nearer to Me is what I have enjoined upon him; and My slave keeps on coming closer to Me through performing Nawafil (prayer or doing extra deeds besides what is obligatory) till I love him.
When I love him I become his hearing with which he hears, his seeing with which he sees, his hand with which he strikes, and his leg with which he walks; and if he asks (something) from Me, I give him, and if he asks My Protection (refuge), I protect him.
[Sahih Al-Bukhari: 6021]

1) Those who make innovations in religion and associate partners with Allah (such as Hululi – who believe in the indwelling light in the soul of man, Wujudi – who believe in the physical form of Allah, and pagans who worship other than Allah) interpret this Hadith in support of their beliefs and thus seek support of one wrong from another although the meaning and interpretation of the Hadith is not at all what they describe.
The Hadith means that when a person adds voluntary prayers to the obligatory ones, he becomes a favorite slave of Allah and on account of it, he receives special help from Allah.
Then he is protected by Allah to the extent that He supervises every organ of his body. Thus, he is saved from disobedience of Allah. He bears what is liked by Allah, sees what is liked by Him, handles what pleases Him. When he attains that lofty position of love and obedience of Allah, then Allah in return also grants prayers of His obedient and loyal slaves.

2) A saint is not one who has a peculiar attire and appearance, or who occupies the seat of a righteous as his successor, or a person who is lost in meditation, or a half-mad, or one who has invented his own style of remembrance and worship of Allah, but it is one who strictly fulfills the obligations imposed by Islam, is fond of voluntary prayers and adheres to Divine injunctions in every walk of life.

3) The love of such righteous is a means to attain the Pleasure of Allah, and enmity (hatred and repulsion) with them is a cause of His serious displeasure and wrath.

4) Voluntary prayer is certainly a means of attaining the Pleasure of Allah, but it must be preceded by the fulfillment of obligatory prayers, The former is of no value if the latter is neglected. The desire to attain nearness of Allah without strict observance of the obligatory prayers is fallacious and meaningless.
