"Laziness against the Salah is a sign that the heart does not long after Allah. "
"Some sisters on social networking sites are approaching Muslim brother for marriage nowadays. Just by looking at their profile they find out that the brother is very pious. So please sisters don’t judge anyone by just looking at their profile. No one is perfect and this is not the right way to approach someone for marriage. In islam we are not allowed to have vain and casual talk with non mehram. So please guard your modesty and you will get your spouse at an appointed time. So please be patient. May Allah give every brother and sister in faith a pious, loving and caring spouse.
( سُبْحَانَ الْلَّهِ، وَالْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ، وَلَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا الْلَّهُ، وَالْلَّهُ أَكْبَرُ ) on We Heart It.
How strange and foolish is man. He looses his health in gaining wealth. Then to regain health he wastes his wealth.
He ruins is present while worrying about his future - but weeps in the future by recalling his past.
He lives as though death shall never come to him - but dies in a way as if he were never born.
Are you not tired?
Are you not tired of asking for this and that from Allah? Are you not tired of just wanting something for yourself and not care if you are giving anything in return? Do you think entrance and exit doors are created for nothing, it is but a reminder for those who ponder hard!
You ask and ask of Allah for things like health, wealth, protection and everything but do we ask for something that actually should be on the top of the list of our du’as?
Yes, His Forgiveness. We ask but we don’t give out our repentance? Is that fair?
You ask and ask and He gives and gives yet we forget and forget? How selfish, right? We can’t even give enough thanks and yet we expect to repent?
It’s sad that when we repent, it is just for short time. We repent and then we think “O Okay, i repented that’s fine.” Really? Is this how sincere your repentance is?
My dear brother and sister in Islam, ponder hard, if you really want to repent from everything you have done, by Allah, you won’t even want to think of raising your head from sujood.
Again, repentance is the first pillar of forgiveness. You have to repent, regret to understand why you are asking for forgiveness.
Realize that when you want to achieve and gain something in this world, you give so much effort to it, to perfect an exam, you will pull and all nighter just to read piles of books, if you want to have a car you would work your soul out just so you can buy this thing, yet when it comes to repentance, even raising your hand to Allah becomes so heavy and burdensome. Why? How come?
Is not Allah worthy of same effort you give to these things? Or are you saying these things are better than Allah? Astagfirullah.
If you really want it, then repent with the same amount of repentance you want to get from Allah, okay?
It’s never too late, Allah is always calling you, He always waits but when will you answer His call, when will you end the waiting?
When will you redeem your soul?
And we pray that Allah Azza Wa Jall enlightens our hearts and empty our hearts from the love for this world and fill it with the love for the akhirah.
'When Allah completed the creation, He wrote in His Book which is with Him on His Throne, 'My Mercy overpowers My Anger.'
Allah’s Forgiveness: Allah is the most Forgiving. There are many names of Allah given in the Qur’an. Some of these names are related to His mercy and forgiveness. Let me mention some of these names.
al-Ghafoor: The most Forgiving
This name occurs in the Qur’an more than seventy times. There are other names from the same root, such as Ghafir and Ghaffar. The meaning of the “ghafara” is to cover, to hide and from it comes the meaning “to excuse”, “to pardon”, “to remit” and “to forgive”. Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala does all these things. In the Qur’an, it is mentioned that Allah does not forgive shirk (without repentance) but He may forgive every other sin for whomsoever He wills. (al-Nisa’ 4:116) We must turn to Allah to seek His forgiveness.
al-’Afuw: This is another aspect of forgiveness
This name occurs in the Qur’an five times. Literally the word ‘Afw means “to release” “to heal”, “to restore”, “to remit”. Thus in relation to Allah it means “to release us from the burden of punishment due to our sins and mistakes”, “to restore our honor after we have dishonored ourselves by committing sins and making mistakes.” Sometimes in the Qur’an both names: ‘Afuw and Ghafoor come together.
al-Tawwab: The Acceptor of repentance
This name of Allah is mentioned in the Qur’an about 11 times. Allah accepts the repentance of those who sincerely repent and turn to him. The word “tawwab” gives the sense of “oft-returning” which means that Allah again and again accepts the repentance. We make sins and mistakes then we repent, He accepts our repentance. Then again we commit sins and make mistakes and when we repent, He again very kindly accept us and gives us another chance.
al-Haleem: The Clement
This name is mentioned fifteen times in the Qur’an. This means that Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala is not quick to judgment. He gives time. He forebears and is patient to see His servant to return to Him.
al-Rahman and al-Rahim: The most Merciful and Compassionate
These names are the most frequently mentioned in the Qur’an. Al-Rahman is mentioned 57 times and al-Raheem is mentioned 115 times. al-Rahman indicates that Allah’s mercy is abundant and plenty and al-Raheem indicates that this is always the case with Allah. He is full of love and mercy and He is ever Merciful.
The Qur’an teaches that Allah is a Judge and He also punishes, but Allah is not bound to punish. The justice of Allah, according to Qur’an is that Allah does not and will not inflict undue punishment on any person. He will not ignore the good of any person. But if He wishes to forgive any sinner, He has full freedom to do that. His mercy is unlimited and His love is infinite.
There are many verses in the Qur’an and sayings of the Prophet -peace be upon him- on the love, mercy and forgiveness of Allah. In one of the prayers that the Prophet taught, he said, “O Allah, You are most Forgiving One, You love to forgive, so forgive me.” . We need Allah’s mercy and forgiveness all the time. It is wrong to assume at any time that one will find eternal salvation without the forgiveness of Allah.

I’ve learned that no matter how you to try to fill yourself up externally; it can never fill that emptiness and numbness you are feeling from within.
What I realised was, that all along I had not been addressing the one thing that underscores everything: my soul.
I’ve also learned that you can be eating very well and consuming all the green smoothies in the world but none of this will honestly help you if you’re not changing what’s going on inside your head. All the gym sessions you can muster won’t make you feel better if you’re not actually heeding the whispers of your heart. And no amount of shoes, shopping or Shiraz can numb the pain when you’ve forgotten how to listen to your soul…
When I saw this post I stared at it for a good five minutes, and couldn’t help but tear up. This picture is sure to wipe any arrogance and petty dunya problems in our hearts. Although the caption is a little weird, it’s reality and serves as a beautiful reminder of our final destination. We’re not promised tomorrow…or heck, even the next five minutes.
اسْتَغْفِرُ الله وَ أتُوبُ إلَيْه
