I’ve learned something amazing. Ramadan is such a powerful and comprehensive metaphor of life. As with life, in Ramadan we must struggle hard. We must let go of things we love (food, drink, intimacy) in order to attain things we love more (mercy and pleasure of God). Our greatest day of joy is at the End–at the Final breaking of the fast. In Ramadan, that day is Eid. In life, that day is in the hereafter. And although this greatest day of joy is at the end, Allah allows us small joys along the way. In Ramadan, He gives us daily celebrations at iftar, before the Final celebration at Eid. In life, He gives us glimpses of pleasure, before the Real joy in the hereafter. In this life, He gives us the peace of prayer, the coolness of the eyes of family. A loyal friend. The beauty of a sunset, or full moon. Majestic trees. These are the small iftars, before the True Feast.
And this is why we know that for the one who fasts (from both food and what displeases Allah), there are two joys. One joy is at the time of breaking the minor fast (from food) at iftar. And the other joy is at the breaking of the major fast (from haram) at the meeting with Allah.
But, of all the life lessons of Ramadan, there is one we forget most. When we mess up the beginning, when we feel suffocated by the weight of wasted opportunities and unfulfilled plans, we still have a chance. A chance to come back. A chance to rise up from our spiritual crawl, and walk–maybe even run–to the finish line.
No matter what we’ve done, He still gives a chance to leave strong, by giving us the mercy of the night of power and the last 10 nights.
And in life, the same.
No matter how much suffering you see around you, there is also joy. No matter how dark it is for you right now, this isn’t the end; you can still leave strong. You can still rise up.
May Allah make us among those who, despite our beginnings, leave only with strong endings.
Husn ul khaatima, ya Allah.
Day 29 / Juz 29 & 30 (Ramadan ’17):-
“My Lord, forgive me and my parents and whoever enters my home as a believer…” [71: 28]
The Qur’an details many of the du’as made by the Prophets and this particular du’a by Nuh (AS) is one that leaves a warm feeling in my heart. Nuh goes out of his way to seek forgiveness (a major theme in this surah) not just for his parents but also every single person who walked into his house as a believer. Such a beautiful du’a. He is essentially making his home a sanctuary where people are prayed for and they receive the gift of his prophetic supplication.
Our homes are places of safety, mercy, and well-wishes. It’s a place where we welcome others and offer our peace to them. We host them and we feed them. But Nuh went a step further and made his home a place where the forgiveness of Allah touched everyone who walked in. Paradise is called the ‘Home of Peace’ (Dar al-Salam) and so Nuh is teaching us to create homes of peace, a little oasis of Paradise right here on earth by seeking the forgiveness of Allah for ourselves, our families, and everyone who steps into our home.
As Ramadan draws to an end, I ask Allah to forgive me, my parents and family, and everyone who reads this or has read these posts and benefited. May we witness many more Ramadans, ameen 🙂
Day 28 / Juz 28 (Ramadan ’17):-
“When the prayer is finished, disperse through the land and seek the bounty of God…” [62: 10]
There is a time for this and a time for that. A time to worship and a time to do business. A time to celebrate joyously and a time to remember solemnly. A time to laugh and a time to cry. A time to converse with society and a time to converse with your soul. It’s all about balance and being careful not to hit extremities or dwell for too long in the corners of life.
Even when it comes to prayer, Allah `azza wa jall is instructing us to go out and disperse through town once we are finished praying. We have to tend to the other aspects of our lives and we’re not allowed to seclude ourselves forever in worship; that’s something people have unnecessarily burdened themselves with or guilt-trip others with. As mentioned towards the end of the previous Juz, it’s not only impossible to sustain, but it’s actually not even true piety. True righteousness is being able to live in this world and despite its hustle and bustle, you still remember Allah, you still worship Him, and you still make time for Him.
Day 27 / Juz 27 (Ramadan ’17):-
“…And He will appoint for you a light whereby you shall walk…” [57: 28]
In a world that is fast being engulfed by darkness of all sorts, most of us yearn for some light. There are people that walk the earth with light; they see with clear clarity and are enlightened from within. It doesn’t mean that they don’t have any problems, but it means that despite the problems, they feel peace and are well-nourished and protected by their Iman.
Allah `azza wa jall promises us this light from Him, but all it takes is 2 things as the verse mentions: “O believers, be conscious of God, and believe in His Messenger, and He will give you a twofold portion of His mercy; and He will appoint for you a light whereby you shall walk, and forgive you; God is All-forgiving, All-compassionate.” [57: 28]
That’s all it takes to completely transform our lives from inside out. Have some God-consciousness within you and follow in the footsteps of His final Messenger. You will be led through the earth and led through life – with light from Him. You’ll come across mercy twice-fold. You’ll make it out of every problem and you’ll never be defeated by anything though it may test you fiercely. You will see His signs and appreciate them, and you’ll find yourself through them. How many people long to find themselves. You’ll see bravery and courage develop within you as you become fearless due to your ever-increasing fear of God, and you’ll also soften and become vulnerable in ways you didn’t stop to think about. It’s a tale of you finally seeing yourself and transforming because when light hits something, you really begin to see it for what it is – and that’s a powerful thing.
Day 26 / Juz 26 (Ramadan ’17):-
“O Mankind, indeed We have created you from a male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted.” [49: 13]
How often we come across this verse! It tells us of our origins and why we are all so different. And ain’t that a beautiful thing 🙂 There’s a hadith that fascinates me in relation to this, and it’s when the Prophet (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam) said:
“Allah created Adam from a handful that He gathered from the entire earth, so the sons of Adam come like the earth. Some of them are red, some are white, some are black and some are in between. Some of them are easy, some of them are difficult, some are evil and some are good.” [al-Tirmidhi, hasan sahih]
We are as different as the grains of sand on earth, and if you know anything about sand particles you’ll know how vastly different we are. This is not only to be celebrated, but it’s also to be understood… You won’t always see eye to eye with people, you won’t always understand why they react the way they do, and you won’t always understand their reasons for so many things. You may get along absolutely fine with some people and yet be stumped by others and be frustrated by them. Understand that they are from a different grain of sand.
I have a firm belief that we should all be able to get along with people on a basic level, no matter how much we disagree or dislike them. You can always choose to be amiable, choose to interpret words well, and choose to respond with balance and piety. This is how to build bridges with people who are different, and this is how we can get to know one another… after all, it’s our differences that create a strong intrigue inside each of us.
Day 25 / Juz 25 (Ramadan ’17):-
“Allah is Subtle with His servants…” [42: 19]
It’s not difficult for Allah to show us His signs in elaborate and stark ways. It’s not difficult for Him to shake the earth beneath our feet or colour the sky above us if need be. But that’s not how He works with His slaves. He is subtle and He is consistent in His subtlety. He teaches us in ways that are gentle and personal to each of us, and He alerts us to our mistakes on a very discreet level.
I remember one time when I was studying abroad, a friend of mine asked me to listen to a lecture on a particular aspect of fiqh. I kept putting it off but it was strange because she kept asking if I had listened to it and I said no because to be honest it wasn’t a topic that interested me or concerned me. I had other subject areas that I wanted to learn more about. So I didn’t bother with it and completely dismissed it (may Allah forgive me). Subhan’Allah, within a few days, out of nowhere I fell into a predicament which concerned that *exact* same fiqh issue. I was astonished to say the least. It wasn’t a major crisis but it wasn’t an every day matter either; it was something so far from my mind at that time. But anyway, the message was ever so clear. Allah was saying to me ‘Don’t dismiss any aspect of knowledge; it’s not for you to choose’, and He was alerting me to take His gifts and opportunities for learning. What brought me to tears was how subtle everything was and how it all unfolded; from my friend’s random suggestion and persistence, to the timing of it all. Needless to say I rushed back home and listened to that lecture twice over 😀
Allah is subtle and He wishes only that we are humble enough to notice His gentle messages and act upon them. He wishes only to teach us in gentle ways because if He wished, He could’ve taught us harshly – but He chooses Mercy at every instance. O Allah, be gentle with us and guide us with Your kindness, Ya Lateef.

رَبِّ ابْنِ لِیْ عِنْدَكَ بَیْتًا فِی الْجَنَّة
Day 22 / Juz 22 (Ramadan ’17):-
“…But few of My slaves are grateful.” [34: 13]
Be from the few. Those who go above and beyond the norm. The grateful and patient; who are grateful for the minute things and patient over the great tests. Be from the few; the heroes and heroines, the brave and fearless. The worshippers by night and the charitable by day. The knowledgeable and knowledge-seekers, the good-doers wherever they are. Be from the few who perfect their Iman and protect it fiercely. Be from the few who hold tight their families and hold together their communities. They are all marked and distinguished not by the great actions they do, but by the rare quality with which they do so.
Be from the few who are quality people, and like the rare gem, can hardly be found in abundance. O Allah, make us from the few who go above and beyond, ameen.
Someone asked me today about what they should do tonight in terms of worship. I suggested a couple of things (other than Tarawih since they were going to the masjid anyway) but here is what I want to tell you:
You may be running out of steam but keep going and finish strong. Just like a work out: the last few seconds are the most difficult, painful and exhausting, but you have to muster up all the energy and force you have and keep going. You cannot afford to give up. If you drop 10 seconds too early from your plank you might as well start all over again. The last two dead lifts might make you feel like you will drop dead, but you cannot step away. You MUST pick that bar up and do your thing!
“When you think you are done you’re only 40% of what your body is capable of doing. That’s just the limit that we put on ourselves.” – David Goggins

Abū Mālik (r.a) narrated from his father that he heard that a man came to the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w) and said, ‘O Messenger of Allah (s.a.w)! How should I call upon my Lord?’ He (s.a.w) said, ‘Join all your fingers together except for the thumb and pray:
O Allah, forgive me and have mercy on me and grant me wellbeing and provide for me.
Certainly, these words will amass your world and your hereafter.’
[Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim: 6851]
ابو مالکؒ اپنے والد سے روایت کرتے ہیں که انہوں نے نبی صلی الله علیه وسلم سے سنا که ایک آدمی نے آپ کی خدمت میں حاضر ہو کر عرض کیا: اے الله کے رسول! جب میں اپنے رب سے دعا کروں تو کیسے کہوں؟ آپ صلی الله علیه وسلم نے اپنے انگوٹھے کے علاوه باقی انگلیاں جمع کرکے فرمایا: کہو اَللّٰھُمَّ اغْفِرْلیِْ وَ ارْحَمْنِیْ وَ عَافِنیِْ وَ ارْزُقْنِیْ۔
اے الله! مجھے بخش دے، مجھ پر رحم فرما، مجھے عافیت دے اور مجھے رزق عطا فرما۔ یقینا یه کلمات تمہاری دنیا اور آخرت کو جمع کرنے والے ہیں۔

Day 13 / Juz 13 (Ramadan ’17):-
“They said, ‘We are missing the king’s goblet. Whoever brings it shall receive a camel’s load; that I guarantee.'” [12: 72]
There’s something very fascinating about the story of Yusuf (AS). Certain things that were negative at the beginning of Yusuf’s life and which he had no control over, come back at the end but this time in a good light with him given control and power over it. Take the fact that his brothers threw him into a well; a place holding water, and this was a plot they devised as a team to get rid of him. In the end, Yusuf devised his own plan to get his beloved brother back by using the king’s cup; an instrument which holds water (the symbolism here shouldn’t escape you!) and which caused the brothers stress and divided them.
Consider Yusuf’s shirt that the brothers doused in sheep’s blood in order to hurt their father and cut off his heart and hope from Yusuf. In the end, Yusuf used his own shirt which not only brought back his father’s sight, but also removed the hurt and despair in his heart and reconnected them. Consider the fact that as a boy, Yusuf was bought as a slave with mere coins but just a few years later, he is the financial minister and no-one could dare put a value on him. Instead they all humbled themselves to him as a master of his field.
This is not just a story and these are not just coincidences that Allah is mentioning. He is teaching us realities that He’s set in the life of this world. A negative thing that happens in your life may very well open up doors of positivity later on. Something that you’ve no control over may soon fall within your control and you get to use it for your benefit. Life is dynamic and constantly changing, tables turn and events come back on themselves and arrive on your shores again. You may not have had control before, but now you do. You may not have known what to do before, but now you do. As Yusuf says later on, O Allah You are the Originator of the Universe… You return and repeat things. O Allah bless us with the understanding and ability to do what You want us to do and is beneficial for us in this life and the Next, ameen.

🔹Juzz 15 Surah Al Isra 1-111🔹
▪️Allah placed Barakah in Jerusalem since it was the place where numerous Prophets came.
▪️Surah begins with tasbeeh since an important event is been related, the Journey of Prophet SAW from Makkah to Masjid Al Aqsa and from there he was taken to the seven heavens, the details are of which can be found in ahadith.
▪️Prophet SAW met with different Prophets, went up to Sidrah tul Muntaha, got the gift of Salah.
▪️Most people doubted this journey but for Allah nothing is impossible.
▪️Allah’s wisdom was to show him some signs.
▪️Tawakkul is cause of bringing peace to the heart.
▪️Allah praised Nuh AS for his patience. We should try to adopt the quality that Allah praises.
▪️If you do good, you do good for your ownselves, and if you do evil (you do it) against yourselves.
▪️Qur’an guides to that which is most just and right and gives glad tidings to the believers, who work deeds of righteousness, that they shall have a great reward (Paradise).
▪️Man invokes (Allah) for evil as he invokes (Allah) for good and man is ever hasty.
▪️Hastiness is from the Shaitan and it’s disliked.
▪️Even in anger one should not curse anyone, since it can be accepted and if it’s nor accepted it returns to the one who cursed.
▪️One should not threaten others that they’ll curse them.
▪️Do not curse yourself, your children or wealth.
▪️Parents should be careful not to curse their children.
▪️Adopt Positive talk, it has an effect on our thoughts and actions.
▪️It will be said to him): “Read your book. You yourself are sufficient as a reckoner against you this Day.”

▪️Whoever wishes for the quick-passing (transitory enjoyment of this world), Allah grants him what He wills for whom He likes.
▪️Do not desire reward for a good deed right away.
▪️Whoever desires the Hereafter and strives for it, with the necessary effort, while he is a believer, then such are the ones whose striving shall be appreciated, thanked and rewarded.
▪️When we intend to do something, put the required effort and utilize all resources.
▪️Character and Intention of Aakhrat oriented people and dunya oriented people are different.
▪️Be dutiful to your parents. If one of them or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them a word of disrespect, nor shout at them but address them in terms of honour.

▪️One should not even say اُفْ to parents.

▪️Close all doors that lead towards fahishah.
▪️Avoid loose talk, being alone with non mahrams.
▪️follow not (i.e., say not, or do not or witness not, etc.) that of which you have no knowledge (e.g. one’s saying: “I have seen,” while in fact he has not seen, or “I have heard,” while he has not heard).
▪️Verily! The hearing, and the sight, and the heart, of each of those you will be questioned.
▪️The seven heavens and the earth and all that is therein, glorify Him and there is not a thing but glorifies His Praise. But we do not understand their glorification.
▪️Say those words that are the best, because Shaitan sows a state of conflict and disagreements.
▪️Shaitan is to man a plain enemy.
▪️Shaitan challenged to mislead our offsprings as well.
▪️During birth of child, make Zikr around them.
▪️Make dua for protection of children.
▪️Tactics of Shaitan: Shaitan gradually befools people through songs, music, calls for disobedience of Allah, makes assaults with cavalry and infantry, through our children and wealth, and makes promises.
▪️It’s a bounty of Allah that we travel on land and sea with safety.
▪️One who does not see Allah’s signs nor believes in Him, will be raised blind on the Day of Judgement.

🔶Book Shahru Ramadan
▪️Ibn Al-Jawzi divides the fasting of people into three categories:
First type: The fasting of laypeople
It is to abstain from eating, drinking and sexual intercourse from dawn until sunset.
Second type: The fasting of the elite
It is to abstain from disobeying Allah The Almighty all day long through the tongue, eyes, ears, hands, feet and all body parts) as well as abstaining from eating, drinking and having sexual intercourse from dawn until sunset.
Third type: The fasting of the special elite
It is to have your heart fast and abstain from thinking about anything other than Allah The Almighty. When the heart does not think or attach itself to anything but Allah The Almighty, sins do not cross the minds of such fasting Muslims. It is a state worthy of being sought and achieved even if only for a day or some days.
▪️Purpose of fast is to attain Taqwa. Unless heart is attached to Allah, we cannot truly attain Taqwa.

🔹One that has imaan in their hearts, their hearts change with the Zikr of Allah, their Imaan increase, tawakkul on Alllah increases. With increase in Imaan, the Amal changes.
🔹Our hearts are diseased if the Quran does not effect it. Ask Allah for Qalb e Saleem.
🔹Quran is a Noor that Allah revealed to us. We can walk peacefully with this noor in the straight path in this world and in the Hereafter.
🔹Quran is Furqan that will help us distinguish between good and bad.
🔹Quran is hidayah, shifa for the hearts and Rahmah for the Mumineen.
📍Surah Al Baqarah 142- 252
🔸Ayah 142: The Spirit of Ibaadah is Obedience. Allah is not in need of our Ibaadahs. Allah wants to see if we obey or disobey.
✅We should ignore those who get upset when we obey Allah.
🔸Ayah 143: Our work is to lead others towards the right path, not be followers of the wrong path.
🔸Changes are a part of life. A Mumin accepts changes in life and says :
رَضِیْتُ بِاللهِ رَبًّا وَّ بِالْاِسْلَامِ دِیْنًا وَّ بِمُحَمَّدٍ نَبِیًّا۔
🔸The command for change in direction of Qiblah was immediately implemented by the Muslims. Do not delay in obeying Allah’s commands.
🔸The word Imaan has been used for Salah. Imaan is not just in hearts but includes actions as well.
🔸It is necessary to follow the Qiblah in Fard Salah.
🔸Ayah 147: We should not have any doubts about the commands of Allah.
A Mumin hastens and competes to do good deeds, prays on time, makes up for missed fasts, fulfills the obligation of hajj, pays zakah.

The Power of Pause 🙂 Ramadan, a blessed month providing us such a wonderful opportunity ❤️
🔸Dawrah e Quran by Dr. Farhat Hashmi
🔹Reflections and Main Points
🔺Quran is Kalaam of Allah. It is kalaam of the One who created us.
Sahih International: The believers are only those who, when Allah is mentioned, their hearts become fearful, and when His verses are recited to them, it increases them in faith; and upon their Lord they rely
🔺We have to analyse the condition of our hearts when Quran is recited to us.
✅Self Analysis: Can our hearts feel the Quran, do we intend to increase our Imaan through it, does it show in my actions, do we have tawakkul in Allah.
🔸Surah Al Fatihah
🔺First Complete Surah that was revealed.
🔺This Surah is Shifa for those that are suffering from physical or spiritual disease.
🔺Ayah 1. All Praise is for Allah since He is Our Khaaliq, Maalik, Rubb of All Alameen.
🔺Ayah 2. Allah is Most Merciful even though He is the Owner of everything. He forgives us for our sins.
🔺Ayah 3. He is Maalik so we need to turn to Him for everything.
🔺Ayah 4. Allah loves that we Praise Him.
🔺Ayah 5. We do Ibaadah of Allah Alone. Ibaadah is to submit with humility to Allah with our hearts, limbs. No arrogance, pride. We should do extra zikr, sajdahs to show humility.
🔺Ayah 5. We ask Allah alone for help. Allah is the One that puts in the hearts of others to help us, hence ask Allah.
🔺Ayah 6. The first important thing to ask is Guidance towards the Straight Path. A Person needs guidance more than Rizq. With Hidayah, the doors of Rizq open. Allah will provide Rizq from where he did not even anticipate.
✅To Do: We need to worry about hidayah, taqwa.
✅When facing difficulty staying in the Straight Path, remember Pul Sirat.
🔸In Saheeh al-Bukhaari (7439) and Muslim (183) it is narrated from Abu Sa‘eed al-Khudri (may Allah be pleased with him) in a lengthy hadith: “……Then the bridge will be laid across Hell.’ We said, “O Messenger of Allah! What is the bridge?’ He said, ‘It is a slippery (bridge) on which there are clamps and (hooks like) thorns which are wide at one side and narrow at the other and have bent ends. A plant with such thorns is found in Najd and is called al-Sa’daan. Some of the believers will cross the bridge as quickly as the wink of an eye, some others as quick as lightning, a strong wind, or fast horses or she-camels. So some will be safe without any harm; some will be safe after receiving some scratches, and some will fall down into Hell (Fire). The last person will cross by being dragged (over the bridge).”
✅Ask Allah that we not go astray and stay firm on the Straight Path till we reach Pul Siraat, Jannah.
Ask Allah to keep us firm on the Path of those He has bestowed with His Grace.
🔹Surah Al Baqarah 1-141
🔸(Everything has a hump (or, high peek), and Al-Baqarah is the high peek of the Qur’an. Whoever recites Al-Baqarah at night in his house, then Shaytan will not enter that house for three nights. Whoever recites it during a day in his house, then Shaytan will not enter that house for three days.) This Hadith was collected by Abu Al-Qasim At-Tabarani, Abu Hatim Ibn Hibban in his Sahih and Ibn Marduwyah.
✅Recite some portion of Surah al Baqarah every day.
🔺Ayah 2. Quran is the book of Guidance for the Muttaqun.
🔺Ayah 3. They have Imaan in Ghaib ( what we can’t perceive like Jannah, Jahannum). They establish prayers ( Pray like the Prophet SAW). They spend from their Rizq that Allah has provided them. They believe in what has been sent to Prophet SAW and what was sent before him. They believe in the Hereafter.
✅Iman is the first requirement to be Muttaqeen. Spend on others from what Allah has given us.
Hidayah and Success is through the Quran.
🔺Ayah 8. Qualities of Munafiqeen.
🔺Ayah 10. Love of Dunya is a disease of the heart. Sins eventually cause death of the heart.
✅Avoids minor and major sins.
🔺Iman is to acknowledge from the tongue, have yaqeen in heart and amal through actions.
🔺Ayah 21. All of Mankind is being addressed. Worship your Lord, who created you.
🔺Ayah 22. Allah has made the Earth a resting Place, and the sky as a canopy and sent forth water and brought forth fruits as a provision.
🔺Ayah 23. Challenge to produce a Surah like that of Quran.
🔺Ayah 25. Allah gives glad tidings to those that believe and do good deeds. Be happy when you are on the path of knowledge and do good deeds. The path of knowledge leads to Jannah. Stay on this path till we enter Jannah and we meet Allah.
🔺One can never be happy without the love of Allah in the heart.
🔺Ayah 26. Allah sets forth the parable of a mosquito.
🔺Ayah 27. Qualities of Fasiqun– Break covenants of Allah, Sever what Allah has ordered to be joined, do mischief on Earth. They are the losers.
🔺Ayah 29. We get impressed with knowledge of people but Allah is the All- Knower of everything.
🔺Ayah 30. Story of Adam AS and Iblees.
✨Knowledge is what makes Man superior to Angels.
✨Allah created us to ponder on His signs in order to recognize Him.
✨Iblees refused to do Sajdah to Adam AS, shows his disobedience to Allah SWT.
🔺Ayah 32. All knowledge is from Allah.
✅Remember to avoid any arrogance.
✅Say Wallahu A’lam when you don’t have knowledge of something.
✅Make dua: Rabbi Zidni Ilma.
🔺Ayah 33: Allah knows what we reveal and what we conceal in our hearts.
🔺Ayah 35: Few things are haraam, rest are halaal. Shaitan tempts Man to indulge in Haraam.
🔺Ayah 37: It’s the Rahmah of Allah that He taught us how to do Tawbah.
Those that follow the Guidance, for them there shall be no fear or grief.
🔺Ayah 40. Bani Israeel is reminded of the favors of Allah on them.
When enjoining righteousness to others, have intention of actions on it first.
Seek help with Patience and Salah.
🔺Ayah 52. Be Grateful when Allah accepts our tawbah.
🔺Ayah 60. When you get a blessing, be happy, use it properly.
🔺Ayah 61: Wrath of Allah on Bani Israeel was because 🔅They disbelieved in the Ayat of Allah 🔅Killed the prophets wrongfully 🔅They disobeyed and used to transgress the bounds.
Say in Sha Allah, Allah makes a way out if we have intention.
🔺Ayah 74: Stones also have fear of Allah.
✅Make dua that Allah doesn’t harden our hearts due to our disobedience.
✅Allah loves people with soft hearts. Develop a soft heart for others.
🔺Ayah 78: الأماني is To recite without fahm and tadabbur.
🔺Ayah 83: Speak good to people.
🔺Ayah 85: Disgrace in this life and grievous torment on the Day of Judgement for those who believe in part of the Book and reject the rest.
🔺Ayah 88: Doubts and Desires keeps one away from the Straight Path.
🔺Ayah 93: Love of other things in the heart become a source of hindrance in obeying Allah SWT.
🔺Ayah 98: Whoever takes the friends of Allah SWT as enemies, Allah takes them as enemies.
✅Do not have malice or jealousy for Mumin, forgive their mistakes.
🔺Ayah 102: Benefit and harm are from Allah SWT, so one should rely and depend on Him Alone.
✅When faced with difficulty say
رَضِیْتُ بِاللهِ رَبًّا وَّ بِالْاِسْلَامِ دِیْنًا وَّ بِمُحَمَّدٍ نَبِیًّا1️⃣
2️⃣ Say Istighfar
🔺Ayah 109: Avoid Hasad ( Jealousy)
🔸Prophet Sallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam said: There has come to you the disease of the nations before you, jealousy and hatred. This is the ‘shaver’ (destroyer); I do not say that it shaves hair, but that it shaves (destroys) faith “Tirmidhee (2434)
🔺Ayah 120: Trying to earn the pleasure of others will always cause harm.
Abdullah ibn Amr ibn Al-As may Allah bless him reported: The Prophet peace be upon him said, “The one who was devoted to the Qur’an will be told on the Day of Resurrection: `Recite and ascend (in ranks) as you used to recite when you were in the world. Your rank will be at the last Ayah you recite.”’ [Abu Dawud and At-Tirmidhi].
A Mumin always worries about the acceptance of his good deeds.
Adopt صبغة الله . Deen of Allah should become an inseparable part of our lives.
🔺Ayah 141: We’ll be questioned about our own deeds.
اِن أحسنتم أحسنتم لاَنفسكم
🌙Istaqbal e Ramadan
📌What is the purpose of fasting?
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا كُتِبَ عَلَيْكُمُ الصِّيَامُ كَمَا كُتِبَ عَلَى الَّذِينَ مِنْ قَبْلِكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ
O you who believe, the fasts have been enjoined upon you as they were enjoined upon those before you, so that you may have taqwa” (2:183).
📍The purpose of fasting is to gain Taqwah.
📍Without having Iman , Taqwah can’t be achieved.
📌Ramadan and Renewing the Iman (faith) – تجديد إيمان
📍Renewing the Iman is the first step to prepare for Ramadan.
📍Abdullah ibn Amr reported: The Messenger of Allah, SAWS, said, “Verily, the faith of one of you will diminish just as a shirt becomes worn out, so ask Allah to renew faith in your hearts.”
Source: al-Mustadrak 5
📍What’s Iman ?
Having complete faith that there is no doubt in the existence of Allah, the Hereafter, angels, Quran, all the Prophets, Jannah and Jahannam.
📍Ramadan is the best time to increase and renew the Iman.
📌How to Renew the faith (Iman)?
1️⃣By attaining the beneficial knowledge of
⏺Deen and Quran
⏺The signs of Allah in the Universe
📍The knowledge ( علم) increases the Iman by getting us closer to Allah SWT.
2️⃣By improving the relationship with the loved ones.
3️⃣By not hurting others with our actions.
4️⃣By becoming beneficial for others.
5️⃣By practicing Patience (الصبر)
📌The Benefits of Renewal of Iman
1️⃣Allah’s love and closeness is achieved.
2️⃣Other people start loving you and caring for you.
3️⃣Grief and sorrow go away from the heart.
4️⃣Iman protects one from the Shaitaan.
5️⃣Allah helps the people with Iman, in this world and in the Hereafter.
📌The fast is a shield 🛡
📍The voluntary denial of food and water, only for Allah’s sake, nourishes the soul to become a shield against the evil thoughts and acts, and a mean to protect from the hellfire.
📍It’s very important to protect the fast by guarding the tongue.
📍Fast of tongue means one should completely protect his speech from vain talk and foul language including lying and slandering.
📍Our Prophet SAWS said:” Whoever does not give up vain speech and evil actions, Allah is not in need of his fasting”, i.e. Allah will not accept his fasting.
📌5 Goals for this Ramadan
1️⃣Improving the Salah
2️⃣Making Sadaqa a habit / Being beneficial for others
3️⃣Trying to make Dhikr all the time
4️⃣Improving the connection with the Quran by :
Memorizing the Ayaat of Quran + Tilawah (Recitation)
5️⃣Avoiding sins/ guarding the tongue
“The example of a believer, who recites the Qur’an and acts on it, is like an orange (utrujjah) which tastes nice and smells nice.
And the example of the believer who does not recite the Qur’an but acts on it is like a date that tastes sweet but has no smell.
And the example of the hypocrite who recites the Quran is like a sweet basil which smells good but tastes bitter.
And the example of a hypocrite who does not recite the Qur’an is like a colocynth (bitter apple) which tastes bitter and has a bad smell.”
[Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim ].
When we first experience this world (dunya), we become so impressed by its’ glitter. So we love it. Then once the glitter falls away, we become disappointed, so we hate it. Eventually we grow up further and begin to see, and interact with, dunya for what it really is: Something we don’t need to hate–or love. Just something we need to *use*. Allah describes dunya as a ‘mata’a’. Among other meanings, ‘mata’a’ is a resource, a tool. A tool is what you make of it. It can help you–or it can kill you. Dunya is simply the bridge you must cross to take you back Home. And who gets attached to a bridge? Don’t miss the point by either loving or hating it.
The focus isn’t the bridge.
The focus is what’s on the other side!

Day 3 / Juz 3 (Ramadan ’17):-
“She said, “My Lord, how will I have a child when no man has touched me?” The angel said, “Such is Allah; He creates what He wills. When He decrees a matter, He only says to it, ‘Be,’ and it is.” [3: 47]
In all your du’as and hopes, your thoughts and views on life, and your ups and downs, don’t forget Who it is you’re conversing with. You’re dealing with the Most Powerful who has split seas for His slaves, resurrected the dead, and stopped time. You are not too insignificant for Him to grant you your own miracle. Ask Him whatever it is you long for, and never lower His power and capabilities in your mind.
Sometimes we rationalise du’a too much because we are focused on *ourselves*. We doubt and question. We overthink and are uncertain over the ‘how’ and ‘when’, but that’s not how it should be. The righteous before us used to say, ‘O Allah, I swear to You to do this and that’ and whilst that may shock you, they did it because they were certain of Him and they knew that you can’t push Allah against His Will. He is Majestic and Powerful and He is also Kareem – generous. So how can you not walk away with precious gifts from a Powerful and Generous being? How can you not walk away with your very own miracle in life? Try it
Asalamu Alaykum All!
The Loving Series
“When Allah Loves You” part I
You will probably never meet a Muslim who says they don’t love Allah. Even if they don’t pray and they commit haram they will tell you they love Allah.
So everybody loves Allah, but the bigger deal is, “Does Allah love you”?
Allah is loving and He does love His servants. That’s why one of His names is Al Wadood. “The loving”.
The scholars say love is the essence of our worship and the focal point of our relationship with Allah. Contemplate the following verse:
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مَنْ يَرْتَدَّ مِنْكُمْ عَنْ دِينِهِ فَسَوْفَ يَأْتِي اللَّهُ بِقَوْمٍ يُحِبُّهُمْ وَيُحِبُّونَهُ
“Oh you who believe whoever of you abandons his religion, then Allah is going to bring a people that He LOVES and they LOVE Him…”
Al Ma’ida 5:54
Why didn’t Allah say people who will WORSHIP Him? Or OBEY Him ? Or FEAR Him?
The verse started with Allah’s love towards them and then the love He gets in return. That is the essence of our relationship with Allah.
Allah loves the believers! Contemplate verse 14 from Surat Al Burooj where Allah says:
وَهُوَ الْغَفُورُ الْوَدُودُ
And He is the forgiving, the Loving.
69 times in the Quran “Ghafour” (forgiving ) is followed by “Raheem” (merciful), because pairing mercy with forgiveness makes more sense. But this time Allah mentions that He is forgiving yet loving. Why?
Because you might forgive someone yet still dislike them or even hate them.
But Allah wants you to know that he will forgive you and still keep loving You!
Contemplate the effect of worshipping a God that hates you. Would you be energetic in worshiping Him? Would you love to spend hours talking to Him?
A Christian scholar conducted a study and discovered that more Christians love God the Father (according to them) more than God the son. Because God the Father is the angry one who couldn’t forgive for thousands of years, while God the Son was the merciful loving one that offered to die for their sins.
People naturally gravitate towards a loving God.
Another Bonus of when Allah loves you, you become loved by the angels and you will be granted acceptance on earth.
Allah’s Messenger (salla Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said: “If Allah loves someone He calls (angel) Jibreel and says: ‘I love so-and-so, so love him.’ Jibreel loves him and calls the other angels in Heaven to love that person. They love him, then his love (acceptance) is made upon earth, and he becomes loved…”
May Allah grant us His love. Amen

Ramadan, An Old Friend Is Here
Even though speakers and Khutab (sermons) tend to focus more on fearing Allah, the scholars say that love of Allah is stronger and better than fear.
What are the fruits of fearing Allah? You stay away from sinning!
But the fruits of loving Allah are greater in that you also stay away from sins but because you love Allah, you go above and beyond in worship and in performing voluntary acts. When you love Allah:
* it’s easier to give up bad habits.
E.g. Guy can’t quit smoking for years but he suddenly quits. You ask him how he did it and he says, “My fiancé told me that if I wanted to marry her I’d have to quit”!
He couldn’t quit for years but love made him do it in no time! If you love Allah, giving something up for His sake becomes easy.
* you love His speech!
True story…a guy spoke to his fiancé from Isha’ until dhuhr!
Another story…a guy spent three hours in the cold speaking to his fiancé over the phone!
When you love Allah you love His speech (the Quran) and you never get tired of it. For some it’s five minutes of Quran and then ….Zzzzzzzzz!
* you love Qiyyam (night prayer).
One of the early Muslims cried on his death bed, so his friends thought he was crying because he’s going to miss his children. He said, “I’m crying because I’m going to miss qiyyam al layl”!
He loved talking to Allah for hours into the night and more importantly he knows that for thousands of years he will not be able to seek forgiveness once or mention Allah a single time. So rightfully so that he cried!
* love to meet Allah.
“Whoever loves to meet Allah, Allah will love to meet them and whoever hates to meet Allah, Then Allah hates to meet them”.
* you accept His decree
All the above are more attainable with love than with fear.
The more you know Allah and study His attributes you naturally love Him more.
The more you recognise and contemplate His many blessing you love Him more.
-Sh. Kamal El Mekki
Day 1 / Juz 1 (Ramadan ’17):-
“…Call upon your Lord to bring forth for us from the earth its green herbs and its cucumbers and its garlic and its lentils and its onions.” [Moses] said, “Would you exchange what is better for what is less?” [2: 61]
How many times has the world dazzled us so we sought it out fervently, not realising that what we already have is tons better. How often have we exchanged what was better for what was worse, blinded by emotion or greed. Bani Israel did this with regards to food, but we do it every day with regards to a plethora of things; our possessions, our homes, our relationships, etc. There’s a saying in Arabic that says: “الخير فيما اختاره الله” – which means ‘Goodness lies in what Allah has chosen for you.” So wait out on the calls of this world and don’t rush to answer it so quickly. If you have a great blessing from God, hold it tight, hold it tight. Perhaps it is the goodness that Allah has chosen for you above all else.
