Setting Some Real Goals

You know whats real goals?

To have a love like the love between Hadhrat Khadija رضي الله عنها and Nabi ﷺ.

A love like the love shared between Hadhrat Ali رضي الله عنه
And Hadhrat Faatimah رضي الله عنها.

A love like that of Hadhrat Zainab رضي الله عنهما and Abul Aas رضي الله عنه...

A love like Nabi صلى الله عليه وسلم and Hadhrat Aaisha رضي الله عنها shared.

That was pure love.
They were faced by challenge after challenge yet they remained strong.

They were each other's pillars of strength.
And thers one reason for all of this.
They based their lives on attaining the pleasure of Allah.
They followed His laws and the Sunnah devoutly.
Never questioning.
Because they trusted and knew Allah knows what is best for them.
They were always happy with what he decreed.

They were not wealthy, they did not live in mansions. Or own loads if cars. Or have lots of clothing and jewelry.

They had nothing.
Yet they were happy.
Because they had something better than wealth. They had found Allah.
And He sufficed for them.

When looking for spouses they didn't give preference to the wealth or looks, rather they gave preference to Piety.
They looked for pious Allah fearing partners.
They looked for partners rich in knowledge of Deen.
And they found contentment in this.
They found true happiness.
They formed successful marriages and bonds.

Why is it today we have set such shallow goals.
We have real heroes in Islamic history.
Real stories of love and of life.
Yet we have decided to look up to disgraceful individuals. Celebs, sports stars etc.

We no longer look for pious Spouses.
Spouses with good character.
Spouses who have Love for Allah and Nabi صلى الله عليه وسلم.
Spouses who are pursuing or are rich in Deeni knowledge.
All of which will benefit you in Deen, Dunya AND Aakhirah!

But we prefer Wealth, looks and secular knowledge.
None of which will benefit us in Aakhirah.

There is nothing wrong with looking for someone who is good looking, or has wealth but we shouldn't make it a priority. We should first look at their Piety.

And it should not be that we turn a Pious suitor down simply because he is not wealthy or handsome.

A person who possess and acts upon Deeni knowledge will always be rich.
And a person with good character is never ugly.

May Allah guide us all and keep us on the straight path.
And may He grant all of us who are looking to get married pious Spouses.
Spouses who will strengthen our Deen.
Someone who will be good for us in Deen, Dunya and Aakhirah.
And someone who will guide us to Jannah.
With Aafiyah.
Aameen Ya Rabb.

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.

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…
