Another ReminderPosted: May 16, 2011
✦ When Things Get Tough ✦ Remember:►
(1) This life is a test and Allaah is testing us
(2) This dunya is very short and then comes the Day of Judgement
(3) Remember the trials of the Prophets, Shahabas, Scholars, and have patience
(4) With patience comes immense reward
(5) Death is at our doorstep and what really matters is if you obeyed Allaah’s commands or not
(6) For the pious, Jannah will be there final home.
The Deen is your oyster and you are its pearl, let it protect you, make it your world.
Have faith in your Lord. You are His jewel. Let Him protect you from the people of this world who are cruel.
Lift your Imaan to the peaks, don’t let them drag you down, you are a gem of Islam, so proudly wear your crown. Ease will soon follow, as hard as it may seem.
May you all stand firmly on al-Siraatul Mustaqeem.. Ameen! ♥
✦ CHOOSING A SPOUSE ✦ The Prophet (Peace be upon him ) said:► “A woman may be married for four reasons: her wealth, her lineage (family status), her beauty or her religious commitment; Choose the one who is religious and you will prosper.” [Sahih Bukhari, Book 62, Hadith Number 27]
✦ The Pure Heart ✦ The Prophet sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said: “Indeed, there is a piece of flesh in the body; if it is sound then all the body is sound. However, if it is diseased, then all the body is diseased Truly that is the heart.” ♥
[al-Bukhaaree (1/126) and Muslim (no.1599)]
A Muslim’s faith may become weak and he may be overwhelmed by his desires. The Shaytaan may make sin attractive to him, so he wrongs himself (commits sin) and falls into that which Allaah has forbidden. But Allaah is Kind to His slaves, and His mercy encompasses all things. Whoever repents after doing wrong, Allaah will accept his repentance, for Allaah is Forgiving and Merciful.
[Usool al-Deen al-Islami]
✦ Truly!!! ALLAH is able to do all things ✦ “And to Allah belongs the unseen of the heavens and the earth. And the matter of Hour is not but as a twinkling of the eye, or even nearer. Truly! Allah is Able to do all things. And Allah has brought you out from the wombs of your mothers while you knew nothing. And He gave you hearing, sight, and hearts that you might give thanks (to Allah).” [Qur’an 16:77-78]
✦Make the Best Intentions for Allah & Gain Success!✦ “The degree to which a person is helped and aided by Allah depends on the degree of his intention, drive, aim and hopes. Help from Allah comes to people in proportion to their drive, intention, hopes and fears; and failure comes to them in a like manner.” [Ibn al-Qayyim]
Narrated Ibn Umar: The Prophet [PBUH] said, “The keys of the unseen are five & none knows them but Allah:
(1) None knows what is in the womb, but Allah;
(2) None knows what will happen tomorrow, but Allah;
(3) None knows when it will rain, but Allah;
(4) None knows where he will die, but Allah (knows that);
(5) and none knows when the Hour will be established, but Allah.”
[Bukhari, Book 9 Vol 93 Hadith 476]
✦ REMINDER ✦ “A righteous companion is better than loneliness and loneliness is better than a wicked companion. Further, he who directs to righteousness is better than he who is idle, but he who is idle is better than he who directs to evil” [Abu ad-Darda – r.a.] ► But Do Not be just an Idle Person.. because Time is moving!!! ► And Do Find, Be With, & Be As the Righteous Companion, since it will lead you to Jannah!!!
✦ What counts: ✦
► Is not the colour of your skin but the color of your character;
► Is not the language that you speak but the words that you use;
► Is not where you live but how you live;
► Is not how much you earn but what you do to earn it;
► Is not where you are but how you got here;
► Is not that you are a human being but the kind of human being you are.
“And know that Allah knows what is in your minds, so fear Him. And know that Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Forbearing”
[Al Qur’an: Surah Baqarah; Ayat 235)
Think about all the awesome blessings that have been bestowed upon us by Allah. The blessing of eye-sight, hearing, taste, touch, smell, the tiny little muscles that allow us to breathe, the neurons that allow us to think, are we grateful for these everyday blessings! Or do we use these blessings to disobey Allah instead? ► “Indeed mankind, to his Lord, is ungrateful. And indeed, he is to that a witness.” [100:6-7]
Want to please Allah & get more rewards?►Then Do what you have to do! Do not just think & sit, but Act!►If you haven’t offered your salat now, just do it! If you haven’t read the Quran, just open it & Read! If you haven’t made du’a for your parents, just make du’a now. If you see the needy people & haven’t given them their portion, just give it!
These are just few good deeds you can do. Do what you have to do now! 🙂
✦Take the Time Right Now to Repent to Allah!✦
Repentance:means turning back from disobeying Allaah to obeying Him.Repentance is beloved to Allaah, as He says:”Verily, Allaah loves those who repent and those who purify themselves.” [Surah Al-Baqarah; Ayat 222]
Repentance is an obligation on every believer. Allaah says:”O you who believe! Turn to Allaah in sincere repentance!” [Surah At-Tahreem; Ayat 8]
Still work hard & strive only for the worldly life? Need some ENCOURAGEMENT to WORK HARD for the HEREAFTER?
Remember this►”And that man can have nothing but what he does (good or bad). And that his deeds will be seen, Then he will be recompensed with a full and the best recompense.” [53:39-41]
