Ghuraba(Strangers)

We do everything society tells us so we can "fit in" and so we won't be the "odd ones out."

Sisters dont wear Hijab, Niqab, Abaya or Modest clothing.

Brothers shave off their beards and let their pants fall over their ankles.
All because we think the western way of dressing looks smarter.

We want to follow the fashion trends. Because everyone is wearing a certain brand or style of pants or top we have to wear it as well

Because we think our dressing  doesn't matter, as long as we read our 5 daily salaah and Recite the Kalimah we can dress how we want.

The minute you tell a sister to don hijab or to wear modest clothing she will tell you
"Don't judge me. You don't know whats in my heart."

This has become so common, and it saddens me.

I am not judging you sister,
I am simply trying to help you.

And if you truly had fear of Allah and love for Islam in your heart you would definitely be wearing the Hijab.

We will go to any length to please society and to fit in.

Even if it means the displeasure of Allah, and disregard for the sunnah of Nabi ﷺ.

Oh what has happened to this Ummah that we do not care for the one who cried for US?

He ﷺ who sacrificed so much for US.

He ﷺ would stand in Salah till his mubarak feet swelled making dua for US.

"Ummati Ummati, My Ummah My Ummah"
That was His concern.

And now the same Ummah He ﷺ cried for is stabbing him in the heart countless times.

We protest when people draw blasphemous cartoons (May Allah's curse be on such people) of our Habib ﷺ.

But by doing these things they do not in any way diminish the light of Rasulullah ﷺ or hurt him in any way because they are ignorant.

We are not ignorant, we know what Nabi ﷺ has done for us and we know what a guiding light he is.

We do so many things on a daily basis that are in contradiction to Qur'aan and Sunnah.

But we don't care.
As long society is happy.
As long as we have satisfied our nafs (Desires).
As long as we are not the
"odd ones out".

But remember Nabi ﷺ said something to the effect that
Islam began as something strange,
And it will revert to being strange,
So give glad tidings to the strangers.

So if you are the "odd one out" because you Wear Hijab &  Niqab, or because you have a beard or because you don't participate in haram gatherings (parties, mixed weddings etc) or simply because you follow what Nabi ﷺ has taught us.

Then Alhamdulillah.

If your purpose in life is to please Allah, by following the Sunnah of Nabi ﷺ and commandments from Qur'aan, then you will be successful and Allah will raise your status in this world and in the hereafter,Insha'Allah.

But if your aim is to please people and your nafs (desires), then you will never find true happiness, and you will surely be disgraced.

Put your Allah and Nabi ﷺ first!
It doesn't matter what people think.

People will always disappoint you in some way.

But Allah will always be there for you.

So make sure you don't ever give preference to anything over Allah.

Concern with this world is darkness in the heart.
But Concern with the hereafter is light in the heart.

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…
