A World of Problems

I look around me, at My brothers and sisters around the world.

And i see Destruction.

I see them in Syria, Palestine, Myanmar and Kashmir (among others) being butchered and chased off their land.

I see them in Egypt, Libya and Yemen fighting for a just rule.

I see them in Somalia and other countries, without food and water.

I see them in Afghanistan, trying to live there lives whilst war is going on all around them.

I see them in other countries crying because they have lost everything due to a tsunami, hurricane or earthquake.

I see them dying because of horrible diseases, and no one is able to stop it.

I see them being harassed for practicing Islam.

This is just some of the things i see.
There is so much that i don't see.
So much that i do not know.

I look at all of this and i thank Allah for letting me live in a country that is free of all these kind of major problems.
Alhamdulillah.

Yes, we have load shedding,
and a corrupt government,
And yes we have crime
(which is very scary, may Allah protect all of us).
Among other things.

And we complain about
this all the time.
But we don't seem to realize that these are actually minor problems.

We don't ever thank Allah.

Because we are not being brutally killed and dragged out of our homes.
We dont have drones constantly flying over our heads ready to drop a bomb at any time.

We are not being harassed or abused for practicing Islam.

We do not have major tsunamis, hurricanes, earthquakes and tornados.

The things to be thankful for outweighs the "hardships" by a ton.

When will we open our eyes?
When will we realize that we have been blessed, we have never been
put through any major tests .
We think we are suffering,
we think we have it hard.
But if you look around,
you will see,
people who are less fortunate
then you and me.

........
And when your Lord made it known: If you are grateful, I would certainly give to you more, and if you are ungrateful, My chastisement is truly severe.
(Surah Ibrahim:Verse 7)

We wonder why there's no Rain

Why No Rain?
The youth find Hayaa to hard, Hijab and modest clothing a thing of the past.
Immodesty now rules the masses, segregation of sexes no longer holds a place in society.
And then we wonder why there is no Rain… We need to celebrate everything , let's have a party. Birthday, Anniversary, Bridal and Baby Showers.
Who cares if it costs more than a grand, who cares if it's waste. Who cares if it's haram.  We’ll justify it all we can.
And then we wonder why there's no Rain. We've discarded the Sunnah, left our Qur’an on the shelf, forgotten our Salaah, Don't pay Zakaah. We fast only if compulsory but lack true sincerity.
And then we wonder why there's no Rain. We disrespect or elders and parents, we’re uncompassionate toward our young.
And then we wonder why there’s no Rain. Girls have to go out to study, no matter the harms they'll encounter by stepping out of their homes.
No matter the sins committed, education is to important.
And then, w…

Peace Despite The Pain

And suddenly a sense of peace descends despite the pain.
There's a light at the end of this tunnel, an end to this unbearable strain.
A new train is soon arriving, this one filled with blessing and mercy.
For verily He has promised ease after every difficulty.
And we will have happiness after we experience misery.
Today you may have felt like you cannot go on, you felt like falling, never to stand again.
But you have to realise failing is not an option.
Every test sent by Allah has a solution.
He will reveal it at the perfect moment.
Never doubt, never lose hope for surely Allah does not abandon those who hold on to His rope.
Trials are temporary.
So endure them with a beautiful patience, and Allah will shower you with His endless bounty.
Do not resort to sin, thinking it will rid you of your pain. That is the biggest mistake we make.
The cure is found only in remembrance of Your Lord. Raise your hands and make dua, plead and beg your most Merciful Allah.
Fall before Him in prostr…

First Love ❤️

We put our whole hearts into things that are temporary, and we still wonder why we end up with a broken heart.
We place our full trust in everything besides Allah, and then we wonder why things don't turn out right.
We set ourselves up for misery, heartbreak and pain by relying on and attaching ourselves to temporary things, we get attached to people, to places and to things. And when any one of the things we're attached to is taken from us, which is inevitable in this temporary abode, we become devastated, we feel like we can't carry on anymore. Everything comes crumbling down.
But it shouldn't be like that, we shouldn't be attaching ourselves to these things.

We should attach ourselves to Allah!
Because Allah is eternal.
He will always, always be with us.
You will never have to part from Him, ever.

Yes we're allowed to love things and people in the Dunya, but we shouldn't let the love overtake and control us, and yes we're allowed to feel sad and gri…
