Do you want Peace, Just bow down to Allah!

Stop and think for a moment of the happiest time in your life. What made you so happy? Most (if not all of us) will likely remember a time when we were around people that we LOVE. Can you imagine being with Allah, spending time with Him and talking to Him was the happiest time in your life?

The only relationship where you will never have your heart broken is your relationship with Allah. The only one who will never abandon you is Allah. How can you search for happiness when it calls you five times a day?? Hold on to your prayers no matter how difficult life gets, because when you feel like there is no place to turn to or no one to seek help from, prayer will reinforce the belief in your heart that Allah is able to do all things – removing trials, pouring blessing upon you from places unknown, replacing a difficulty with multiple ease, mending issues of your heart and soul that were broken beyond repair, and ultimately rewarding you with Jannah for just having believed in Him- there is nothing a prayer can’t fix, so hold on to your Salah no matter what turns your life takes.

Start your day by talking to the Kings of the Heavens and the Earth, and see how your life transforms. The relationship with Allah is the best relationship you can ever have! But how do you do that?

The way to develop a relationship with Allah is through talking to Him and listening to Him. When you are in Salah you are actually talking to Him and when you are reading the Qur’an you are listening to His Words. Start with the prayer. Spend time reciting and understanding the Qur’an. When you read the Qur’an you will feel that Allah is telling you something, STOP and ponder over the meanings. Pray and ask Allah to show you true guidance and ask for His help and His love.

Don’t let your busy schedule in life stop you from missing your Salah or Delaying your Salah. Unfortunately some Muslims will line up at stores for hours for a good deal on a sale, but come late to Salah to get what money cannot buy. Hold on to your Salah! Do not leave it for ANYTHING!busy life makes prayer Harder but prayer makes a busy life easier.

If you treat your Salah as a CHORE, you will not enjoy it. Treat it as a CONVERSATION between you and Allah, and your perception should change. Why do you rush while you perform Salah? Isn’t the one you are standing in front of in control of whatever you are rushing for?

By earnestly performing the five daily prayers, we achieve the greatest of blessings: cleared off our sins and increase in rank with our Lord. Prayer is a potent remedy for our sickness, for it instills our faith in our souls. As for those that keep away from the mosque and away from prayer, for them is unhappiness, wretchedness and an embittered life.

Sujood is a position where you realize your own nothingness in front of His greatness. A humbling reminder that you not only submit to Him with your limbs in those fleeting seconds of your life, but that you also submit to Him in the strongest sense – His plan and Divine decree for you. That is the ultimate form of submission, which you submit with your Heart.

Life cannot become boring when we establish connection with the giver of Happiness. When we remember Allah by glorifying Him, being conscious of him and thanking Him, He remembers us by answering our prayers, protecting us and guiding us throughout our lives.  Scared? Pray. Over thinking? Pray. Losing hope? Pray. Worried? Pray. Struggling? Pray. Success is from Allah alone. So, go towards Allah and Allah will bring you closer to success. If you want guaranteed success, make every effort to please Allah.

“If Allah should aid you, no one can overcome you; but if He should forsake you, who is there that can aid you after Him? And upon Allah let the believers rely.” [Quran, 3:160]

Allah has Better Plans..

We can trust that when things don’t work out the way we want, Allah has something better planned.

You may not end up where you thought you’d be, but you will always end up where you’re meant to be right where Allah intended you to be all along!

If Allah has put you in a difficult situation in this world, its a chance to earn ease in the hereafter through patience.

Whatever you lost through fate, be certain that it saved you from pain. Whatever you lost through the stroke of destiny, know it was to save you from adversity. One small affliction keeps off greater afflictions; one small loss prevents greater losses.

Have faith, do not lose hope, wait patiently. He indeed will create a way to deliver you from your hardships. Persevere, have faith in His benevolence. Through afflictions Allah only tests your faith; He is completely aware of your condition. Have patience and wait for the divine decree.

Do not lose hope in adversity and complain that God singled you out for punishment, remitting others guilty of worse sins. Your present state could very well be His intent to elevate your spiritual station; or He could just be testing your faith. Everyday that you persevere, you grow closer to perfection. Thus your present despair may be beginning of an infinite blessing.

Whenever Allah gives a blessing to a servant, and then takes it away from him, and the servant patiently endures his loss, then He rewards him with a blessing which is better than the one He took away.

When Allah tests you it is never to destroy you. When He removes something in your possession it is only in order to empty your hands for an even greater gift!.” -Ibn al-Qayyim

Allaah says: “And whoever has Taqwaa of Allaah, He will make a way out for him (from hardship), and He will provide for Him from places He never imagined.” [Surah At-Talaaq: 2-3]

No matter how much you’re going through or how much hope you lost and how confused you were in what to do. Allah (SWT) was the one who took you out of that situation or he will after he tests your patience and faith in him or maybe he just wants to take something away from you to replace it with something better.

Allah knows best. He knows whats best for you, it may not seem like it but the pieces of the puzzle connect at the end. Always have faith in Allah because he only can do anything, everything is possible to him. Pray to him everyday, repent everyday, and make sure you thank him everyday also. Imagine waking up tomorrow with just what you thanked Allah for today?

Alhamdulillah for everything. SubhanAllah how the creator can change your life in just a day

When we face difficulties or we lose something, and we make Dua to Allah and have patience, inshā’Allāh, whatever we have lost, Allāh (subḥānahu wa ta’āla) will compensate us in this world and the next with that which is abundantly better. When we experience that blessing we will thank Allāh (subḥānahu wa ta’āla) for taking us through that test and we will understand that we were never abandoned, our du‘ā’’s were heard (every single one of them) and Allāh (subḥānahu wa ta’āla) was always in control of our affairs.

Treat each difficulty and hardship as a calling from your lord to purify your soul and to increase your rank in the hereafter. The way you face and see each trial is half the battle. Realize that you cannot flee from trials, but you can pass all trials successfully with Allah’s help. Know that each trial is an opportunity to get closer to Allah, for nothing in this world is more valuable than a moment spent in contemplation and worship of Allah.

When you’re single, people ask why you’re single. When you get married, they ask when will you have a baby? When you have one child, they ask when is the little brother or sister coming? When you have another one they ask, why are you having so many children? When you get divorced, they ask why? If you move on, they ask why so quickly?

People will NEVER STOP ASKING & TALKING.
Live to please the CREATOR not the creation.

That moment when you’re in Sujood

That moment when you’re in Sujood and your eyes narrate the condition of your heart, filling the prayer mat with tears, your tongue only moves
to say “Ya Allah, Ya Allah”
And you feel like you’ve transferred all your worries and problems to Him and when you rise up from Sujood your heart feels so much lighter than it was before and at peace.

If this isn’t beautiful then what is?

Does Allah test us?

In this life we face many ups and downs/ difficulties and these difficulties are from Allah Almighty. These ups and downs are from Allah Almighty. Allah Almighty tests his believers with many disasters and crises.
There are many reasons behind these tests which are taken from Allah Almighty. Few reasons are being described here.
*1. For removing our sins and giving reward*
In Quran E Hakeem it is said that:-

And, when he was old enough to walk with him, he said: “O my son! I have seen in a dream that I am slaughtering you, so what do you think?” He said: “O my father! Do that which you are commanded, if Allah Wills, you will find me to be of the patient.” Then, when they had both submitted, and he had laid him prostrate on his forehead, and we called out to him: “O Ibrahim! You have fulfilled the dream!” Verily! Such do we reward the good-doers.”

It is narrated by Sa’ad bin Abi Waqqas that it is said by the Prophet of Allah that:-

“Which of the people are tested most severely?” Rasulullah (SAW) replied: “The Prophets, then the righteous, then those who are most like them, then those who are most like them from the people. A man is tested according to his religious commitment. So, if his religious practice is sound, then his testing is increased, and if his religious practice is weak, then his testing is reduced. A servant continues to be tested until he walks the Earth without a single sin on him.”

 *2. For purifying the ranks*

In Quran E Hakeem it is said that:-

Allah was not such as to let the believers remain in the state in which you are, until He distinguished the corrupt from the good. And Allah was not such as to let you have knowledge of the Unseen, rather Allah chooses whom He will of His Messengers. Therefore, believe in Allah and His Messengers; and if you believe and are God fearing, then, for you is a great reward.
*3. For exposing the reality of human being in this world*
In Surah E Nisa it is said that:-

“Verily, we have created man from a mingled sperm-drop that We might try him, so We made him hearing, seeing. Indeed, we have guided him to the way, to be grateful or ungrateful.”
 *4. For revealing the patience*

In Quran E Hakeem it is said that:-

“And surely We shall try you with something of fear, hunger and depletion in goods, lives and crops. Give glad tidings then (O Prophet) to those who endure in fortitude. Such as those who, when visited by an affliction say, ‘To Allah we belong and to Him we will return.”
These are some good reasons which become the biases of the test which are taken from Allah Almighty. May Allah give us success in every test which He takes from us! Aameen….
