Its All About The Heart - Written by Firdose Saloojee

Teach your children Ikraam! Teach them character.. wallah, i have seen students with the best of grades,who excel in every exam, yet they have the "Im better than you - Stuck-up" attitude and put their friends down. And i have seen students who struggle in exams, yet excel in the beauty of their heart and that makes it so hard to mark them down,for their ikraam shines through☆ Its not just about giving our children wealth,and trust me too much spoiling also leads to kids having their noses in the air ,and making their friends suffer from an inferior complex which is totally against the Sunnah of our Beloved Nabee صلى الله عليه وسلم

Let us instill in our girls and boys the Character of Nabee Salallawhu alayhi wasallam, how his every step was one towards making another happy.. how his golden heart made sure that if he couldnt bring a smile to someones face,he would atleast wipe away their tears and pain.
 As parents we should focus on our Childs heart,on how their day was,on who they shared their lunch with, on how they helped their friend with something that she struggled with,on how they listened to their teacher and made khidmat of their Apa/Molana,  rather than "oh you only got a 70. And oh i cant sit with your assignment tonite cos we have to go for extra lessons and ballet and this and that.".

Children are great imitators,so give them something great to imitate, If we as parents can live the life of Sunnah,and Obeying Allah,and taking time out,and having the humour and compassion of Nabee Salallawhu Alayhi wasallam,Definately it will pass on to our kids..

We should give our children a specific time in a day, where that hour or two is just for them.. no homework.. no books.. nothing.. just unwinding.. relaxing.. and refreshing their mind.. let us teach them the sunnah of kaylullah also,and how just 10 minutes after school also to close eyes for abit and just breathe..
Once in a while, forget about the academics,lay on the grass with your kid and make memories that this child will never forget. Trust me- it does a world of difference. When we teach them about fun,and character and obeying Allah,Naturally their academics will improve. Its not always about the report card percentages, its about the comments at the end of the card that matter! Hug and kiss our children,let them know how loved they are simply because they are the greatest blessing from Allah!. Raising kids is a lot of heartwork,but if done correctly,will be a means of us flying into the gates of Jannah Inshaa Allah..
 Give your child deen,and Allah will bring dunyaa to is the promise of Allah!

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…
