The Warped Society

Have you ever stopped to think about the society we live in.
About the way they have warped our ideals.
About how they have moulded us into the complete opposite of what a Muslim should be.Why is it that we feel compelled to wish people a "Happy Birthday" or buy a gift or throw a birthday party or make a birthday cake. Why is it that a wife might get upset with her husband if he forgets their anniversary...
If he doesn't get her a gift on the day, if he doesn't surprise her with something special. Why is it that we become unhappy when people do not invite us for their wedding or any function even though the event is un-Islamic. Why is it that we hope that our spouse will bring us roses or something on valentines day..Why do mothers feel unappreciated if once a year on mother's day they don't receive anything..

The Rasul Of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم

Alhamdulillah, we are fortunate and blessed to have so many bounties of Allah that are bestowed on us. We have a good home to protect us from the scorching sun and violent storms, we have more than three meals a day to satisfy our every craving, and we have sets upon sets of clothes for each day and every function. SubhanAllah! Let us make Shukr for that! But let us also not forget about the way we were taught to live compared to the way we are actually living. The Ambiyaa alayimus salaam, Sahaba radhiyallahu anhum and the pious never indulged themselves in the luxuries that the world had to offer them. They associated themselves with that which was necessary and abstained from anything that would take their attention away from Allah. May Allah grant us the ability to live according to Sunnah of our Nabi SallAllahu alayhi wa sallam.
As I was working the other day, my mind seemed to wander about, and a thought occurred to me; how amazing would it be if Nabi SallAllahu alayhi wa sallam …
