Well actually even if you are not looking for a book with the above qualities or even if you not looking to read at all, I still highly recommend that you get a copy of and read this book. 

Book Title:
Hadhrat Maulana Husain Ahmed Madni (Rahmatullahi’Alayh)
His Life and Mission..

This book captivated me completely.
Once I really started reading it I didn’t want to put it down, it had me amazed and in tears at several places.
Subhaan'Allaah the amount of test and difficulties Hadhrat Moulana endured and went through is astounding, and yet through all of it his Faith in Allaah never once wavered.
He dedicated his entire life for the Deen of Allaah.
His life was a reflection of the Sunnah of Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وسلم
You have to read the book to realise and understand what a personality Hadhrat Moulana Husain Ahmed رحمة الله عليه was.

The book has 318 pages and consists of 12 chapters.
Each chapter focuses on different aspects of Hadhrats life.
Below are a list of the chapters that are in the book.

Chapter 1:  Birth, Childhood and Family
Chapter 2: Education
Chapter 3: Madinah Munawwarah
Chapter 4: Bay'at and Sulook
Chapter 5: Family and children

This book is easy to read and soak in, it doesn’t have words that go over your head and has been excellently compiled, Masha’Allaah.
(And I absolutely love the cover! It is so beautiful)

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.

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…
