When you teach the Deen, you have to warn against that which opposes it:

1) When you teach Tawheed, you have to warn against shirk and its different types.

2) When you teach the Sunnah, you have to warn against Bid`ah and its different ways.

3) When you teach the Haqq (Truth), you have to warn against the Baatil (falsehood) and its different forms.

If you don’t, then you might just end up wasting your time. How can people know the truth from the falsehood if you don’t make it clear to them? When we say the Shahaadah, لا إله إلا الله, we are first taught to negate the worship of every other “god” besides Allaah, and then we are to affirm the worship only for Allaah alone.

Narrated Hudhaifah bin Al-Yamaan رضي الله عنه: “The people used to ask Allaah’s Messenger (ﷺ) about good, but I used to ask him about evil FOR FEAR THAT IT MIGHT OVERTAKE ME.” [Saheehain] This is Hudhaifah bin Al-Yamaan رضي الله عنه with whom the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم trusted his secrets but he feared for himself that he might fall into the Fitnah.

If warning against evil was not necessary, the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم would not have felt the need to answer his questions. If the Sahaabah felt the need to have their doubts clarified, then what about us? And Allaah is the One who grants success.

A beautiful reminder I  would like to share with you:

Today I come to you with a very simple act…… an action which we do every day……

I noticed many of us go to Rukuu or Sujoud and raise up so fast, some don’t even take the time to say “Subhana Rabi Al Adheem” 3 times…and say it only once!!!!

Well, I have good news for you today…… I have news that will make you from today onwards go to Rukuu or Sujoud with a different feeling and different  timing.

The Prophet PBUH said: When a slave stands and prays, all his sins are brought and placed on his head and shoulders. Every time he bows or prostrates, some of them fall from him.” (Bayhaqi, Saheeh al-Jami’)

So from now on when you stand up to pray, imagine all your sins being placed on your head and shoulders and when you go on Rukuu and Sujoud, stay longer to lose as many as you can and picture them falling down and away from you. Understand the purpose of praying… this will help you concentrate …..

When you go to the position of Rukuu, feel and tell Allah with your heart that you will never kneel to anyone but him and picture those sins falling down.

And when you say “Sami’Allahu liman hamidah” (Allah hears who thanks Him) and you say “Rabbana walakal Hamd” (Thanks to you my Lord) you are thanking Him for honoring you and making you stand straight not like the other creatures who walk on four with their back bent. Thank Him for making you able to move and pray.

When you go to the first Sajdah (you put your head down on the floor) you are representing the earth which you came from and when you get up after the first Sajdah you are representing the first time He created you from the earth. 

When you go on the second Sajdah again on the ground, you are representing when you die and you go back to the ground and when you get up the second time you are representing the second time when Allah brings you back from the dead on the Day of Judgment, therefore, concentrate with every movement and feel it.

Make a lot of du’aa in Sujoud and remember du’aa is ibadah and Allah loves those who ask Him…ask Him and beg Him… complain to Him… you are better off complaining to Him than to humans….He will never betray you, He will never let you down, He will never look down on you and He is the only one who can answer your needs with your head held high.

Do you know the reason you say “Allahu Akbar” (Allah is greater) every time you move in a prayer?

It’s a reminder that Allah is greater than anything you might be thinking about from this world. So be honest when you say “Allahu Akbar” and remember He is greater than anything that is occupying your mind while you pray.

Do you know when you stand up to pray and say “Allahu Akbar”, Allah stands before you and the minute your mind goes wondering on silly things in this life, Allah turns His face away from you and says (Is there something better than me taking you away from me?) 

How lucky are we to have Allah meet us and stand before us 5 times a day, to listen to us and to our problems and to grant us our wishes and forgives us for our sins every day. You say “Allahu Akbar and He is there, you don’t need to stand in front of His door for hours or take an appointment or meet a mediator or a secretary, how generous is He?

Hopefully we will all from today pray differently and enjoy our prayers like  never before In shaa Allah. Yaa Allah taqabbal salaatana… Ameen.

People get so attached to this world… either they work there socks of for a Haram Mortgage or home bought out right …

We need to always remember, everything will remain, when our time is up …

The only thing we will take with us is our Deeds InshAllah.

Ponder on this thought.

Working hard for the hereafter should be the focal point in every ones life. Neglecting the hereafter and working hard for this life, is the foolish mans downfall.

Allah is the True Owner (Malik) (of everything and everyone).

Why are we stressing?

Why do we work so hard for Dunya, when dunya is impossible to keep?

How foolish is man who works tirelessly and endlessly, in trying to gain that which is temporary.

Yet he puts absolutely no effort, in to that which is eternal and everlasting.
- Ali (Ra)

Allaah (subhana wa ta’ala) says in His Quran :

Know that this Dunya, this worldly life is nothing but play and amusement and nothing but beauty; and boasting between men and rivalry in wealth and children.

- Surat Al-Hadid Vs 20

In this Ayah Allaah (subhana wa ta’ala) tells us about the attributes of this world, attributes which many of us fail to recognize.

His is the dominion of the heavens and earth. He gives life and causes death, and He is over all things competent.

- Surat Al-Hadid Vs 2

No ones promised old age, start stacking today for something that will actually benefit you when you die.. Houses will go to someone after you, people will drive your cars after you, your money will get used by others left after you, those individuals your trying to impress will find someone else after you and not even the photos and precious memories from the parties/gatherings will go with you!

“Know you (all), that the life of this world is but play and amusement…” Qur’an 57:20

“And We created not the heavens and the earth, and all that is between them in play.” Qur’an 44:38

“And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me.” Qur’an 51:56.

What a difference in the Ummat Dubai prepares 400,000  fireworks for display ready for  New Years 100 Km in length  While Turkey prepares 400,000 blankets for the Syrians.

That’s why us Muslims are in such a mess….the leaders in Dubai are the lowest of the low..should be ashamed to be celebrating a non-Muslim event in such an extravagant fashion while 1000′s Muslims are in dire need..may Allah guide them. They are NOT following Islam in any way or form .. their time will come.. what goes round comes round.

As we all look forward to the coming year – watch this short message about the fragility of life as some of us may not be here to see 2014….Inna Lillahee wa Inaa Ilahee Ra’ageeoon (from Allah we come and to Allah we return)

Ever feel disconnected with Allah, feel down, feel depressed or think maybe Allah doesn’t love you anymore… feel like your duas are not being answered?? 

Watch this, Sheikh Tawfique gives a beautiful Tafsir of Surah Ad-Duha and shows how Allah loves us all and wants the best for us.

The greatest way to feel good in your heart about Allah is to read Surah ad-Dhuha and understanding its meaning.

A must watch lecture for anyone looking for an Imaan boost and appreciate the blessings of Allah in giving us all we have.. 

This is taken from the full lecture : Such was our Prophet (Peace be upon him) you can watch the full lecture here :

By: Muhammad Uwais Lunat, Leicester

You may have heard about the tragic deaths in Leicester in the early hours of Friday. I was awoken by the sad news this morning. Four members of the same family passed away. The mother Shehnila Taufiq who was in her 40s and she completed her alimiyyah studies before Ramadan. The daughter Zainab, 19 was in her final year. Bilal, 17, completed his hifz before Ramadan and was in the first year of his alimiyyah studies. Jamal, 15, was in Year 11 and was memorising the Qur’an. All of them, apart from Jamal were students of Jame’ah Uloomul Qur’an. They were all attendees of our Jame’ Masjid, living only 100 yds from the house of Allah. Their father Dr. Taufiq was a brain surgeon working in Dublin, Ireland. The father sent the the family including his wife to Leicester only for the sake of studying ‘ilm. The father would come to Leicester Friday evenings and return on Sunday to see his family. The mother recently became a supervisor at the girls madrasah and would sit in the duroos when possible even though she had completed her studies. They had immense love for the deen of Allah. Before Ramadan, I flew with my grandfather, Hazrat Mawlana Adam Saheb to Dublin, Ireland. Dr. Taufiq had purchased a property with his life savings for a masjid and madrasah. An opening jalsa took place. He was very keen for his family to complete their studies and move back to Ireland so that they could live and teach hifz and alimiyyah studies at the estate. The estate was located on a serene and peaceful place nor far from the motorway. The father, who returned to Leicester this morning, is a man of intense simplicity and would sleep in the masjid/madrasah which was also his home. He was due to return this evening (being Friday) and spoke to all members of his family an hour or so before the fire. He was in absolute shock when he was informed. When he would come on the weekends, he would tell his wife and kids that you are all students of ilm and your job is to study and he would insisting on cooking himself, feed the family and due the housework. This was despite the fact that he himseld being a surgeon would have a long week. He himself would lead salah at the new masjid/madrasah in Ireland in the absence of a permanent imam. There are many more things which I cannot fit in a message. But we pray and hope that Allah has given them rank of shahada. Not only were they on the path of ilm, but they received a death of Friday. Incidently, Bilal was due to give an anjuman bayan on death after Jumu’ah today. His bayan fully typed up and prepared was found on his place. He told his father over the phone that he just came home as he was preparing his bayan. The mother was also cleaning the madrasah hours before passsing away. Nobody had anythibg but good things to say about them. Every news channel/newspaper you could think of was present throughout the day. One of the BBC reporters who was interviewing me was in tears when I was discussing the family. A jalsa of ta’ziyah has been arranged on Saturday for brothers and on Sunday for sisters. Please keep the marhoom family in your duas, that Allah grants them firdaus. Please also pray that Allah grants Dr. Taufiq sabr jameel.

Verses of the holy Qur’aan have been placed on the walls of the 

famous US Harvard University. The verse from surah An-nisa is 

posted on the entrance wall to the faculty of law at the campus.

 

A further explanation is given on the law schools website where 

it states verse 135 from An-nisa (Ayah 4) as being revealed in Madinah and 

addresses the importance of truthfulness in testimony. It also 

mentions the chapter deals with the obligations and responsibilities

of women in Islamic society, touches on inheritance and family law along with slavery.

 

Sahih International

 

O you who have believed, be persistently standing firm in justice, witnesses for Allah , even if it be against yourselves or parents and relatives. Whether one is rich or poor, Allah is more worthy of both. So follow not [personal] inclination, lest you not be just. And if you distort [your testimony] or refuse [to give it], then indeed Allah is ever, with what you do, Acquainted.
