I said to allah, “i hate life.” he replied, “who asked you to love life? just love me and life will be beautiful.” ---------- o allah! i ask you for your love and the love of those who love you, and for the love of every action which will bring me closer to your love. ameen

The only survivor of a shipwreck was washed up on a small, uninhabited island. he prayed feverishly for allah to rescue him,and every day he scanned the horizon for help, but none seemed forthcoming. exhausted, he eventually managed to build a little hut out of driftwood to protect him from the elements and to store his few possessions. but then one day, after scavenging for food,he arrived home to find his little hut in flames, the smoke rolling up to the sky. the worst had happened;everything was lost. he was stunned with grief and anger. "allah, how could you do this to me!"he cried.(comment; plenty of people use such an statement,think again you should never question allah nor object to his willing) early the next day, however, he was awakened by the sound of a ship that was approaching the island. it had come to rescue him. "how did you know i was here?" asked the weary man of his rescuers. "we saw your smoke signal," they replied. it is easy to get discouraged when things are going badly but we shouldn't lose heart, because allah is at work in our lives, even in the midst of pain and suffering. remember, next time your little hut is burning to the ground, it just may be a smoke signal that summons the grace of allah. ✒@najm96

Story of @qarizuhair as the blessed month of ramadhan welcomes us, i wish to share a story with you all. as a child i learned the qur'an from a local teacher and soon enough i developed a passion for the art of recitation. i would recite at funerals, events, fundraisers for the community. during high school i struggled with this because i didn't know what it really meant to me. in a sense i felt like being a reciter was this part-time thing which i could flick on like an on/off button. after attending my first international competition during college, i had the chance to spend time in a qur'anic atmosphere with reciters and huffadh from all over the world. this gave me an amazing sense of encouragement and direction towards the recitation of god's book. i dedicated more time to recitation, the comprehension and understanding of the verses and little by little god opened so many doors for me. it's amazing to see your life change in direction for the better when you take steps towards him. and one doesn't necessarily have to be a professional reciter or hafidh, but just making the qur'an a consistent entity in your life. knowing what position it should have in your life and give it its due right. this all is easy to do during the holy month of ramadhan because of the environment we are surrounded in.but it's the other 11 months of the year where we fall short. let's strive to establish a continuous relationship with the qur'an, one that lasts till our last breath insha allah. ig @qarizuhair

A true believer should thoroughly avoid aiming to show off when performing a good deed. “ikhlas” (sincerity) briefly means seeking to gain allah’s consent and satisfaction without expecting any other personal advantages or praise. - the quran also emphasises how the prophets performed actions only for allah and they never wanted personal rewards or advantages. the following words spoken by the prophet hud عليه السلام to his people confirms this: - "my people! i do not ask you for any wage for it. my wage is the responsibility of him who brought me into being. so will you not use your intellect?" (surah hud: 51) - abu hurairah (may allah be pleased with him) said: “the messenger of allah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said, "almighty allah says, 'i am the one who is most free from want of partners. he who does a thing for the sake of someone else beside me, i discard him and his polytheism.." (riyad as-salihin, 1616) - the above hadith is explained in the following commentary: - “he who does a thing for the sake of someone else beside me” here means to do something virtuous for mere show for worldly benefit, or to gain the reputation of being pious. “i discard him and his polytheism” means that “i nullify his good deeds and deprive him of his reward….” - to elaborate further, no amount of praise or admiration gained in the dunya will secure anything in the hereafter. on the day of judgment, each man will stand alone. on that day, faith, piety, sincerity and submission will play the fundamental role. may allah protect us from riya, let’s make dua for each other instead of praising one another. - #forevertemporary @gardenofthepious

The clever and sensitive muslim woman does not forget that one of the greatest deeds she can do in life, after worshipping allah, is to be successful in endearing herself to her husband and filling his heart with joy, so that he’ll feel in the depths of his heart that he is happy to be married to her, and enjoys living with her and being in her company. so she uses her intelligence to find ways and means of opening his heart and filling it with joy and happiness, so that she may become the queen of his heart. she understands that she is the greatest joy of a man in this world, as is stated in the hadeeth narrated by ‘abdullah ibn ‘amr ibn al-‘as (raa), in which the prophet muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “this world is nothing but temporary conveniences, and the greatest joy in this world is a righteous woman.”

Story of sister 👉@lxyla_99 assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. this isn't something i would normally do, nor am i open about my journey to islam. as i sit and listen to trump discussing how "islam hates us", i'm going to share my story in order to help other people on their interests in islam and try to help prevent islamaphobia between me and my community. as you may or may not know, i haven't had the easiest of childhoods, and still at 17, it hasn't massively changed. not that should be a reason for writing this, but i want to emphasise there is stresses everyone has to over come, and with hardship verily comes ease. before any knowledge of islam, i only had the little information from y7 re lessons, i hate to admit i was a straight atheist. i disliked the idea of any religion (please note, i was never racist, i never would abuse someone for their religious beliefs, i was simply just blind). i questioned my re teacher about religion, little did i know it would play a big part of my identity in my future days. it was the end of ramadan during 2014, 2/3 days before eid. my life was simply becoming more stressful. i attended a few parties, started speaking to boys more often and socialising in the wrong groups. walking slowly out of the school gate, i asked a very close muslim sister the exact words, "muna, what is judgement day?". as stated before, i had no knowledge of islam nor christianity. she was shocked. she asked me, "brittany, how do you know about this? i'm not too sure you'll understand, i mean i don't want to scare you". i froze. i remember looking at her, inspired, fascinated and extremely intrigued why these words could be so powerful, and so "scary". we sat down in our art catch up session where she explain to me, in amazing detail what this day was about. she had so much knowledge, i could see in her eyes she was passionate about this particularly topic, dumbing it down enough for an uneducated individual like myself to understand. "this day will be like 1000 years as god will be judging each and every one of us". "why so long?" i questioned. she said "think about how big this world is, but god is greater". continue reading 👇👇👇

“we look forward to getting married because we are excited to have someone in our life that will keep us steadfast on the deen and bring us closer to allaah azza wajal. someone that will increase us in piety and learn alongside us. but the responsibilities after marriage are endless and time runs short in the day. the time to learn about your deen, the time to improve yourself, the time to develop piety is before you’re married - when your responsibilities are strictly to yourself and your development. i’m not saying you won’t develop further after marriage, because you most certainly will. but how can you expect to marry a person that will increase you in piety when such a person probably expects a spouse that has already reached a level of piety from which they feel they can learn from? it’s a balance. you must develop into the person you wish your spouse to be and then anything that remains will be fulfilled by them, and traits they lack will be filled by you, inshaa allaah. but don’t wait for marriage to increase your piety. don’t hope that anyone else is responsible for your development but you.”

“when you are involved in evil you are faster than a speedy stallion but when it is concerning good and charitable deeds, you are slower than a cripple. your sins are more inglorious that the sun, while your repentance is more concealed than a dim star. paying alms is more heavy on you than the mountain of uhud, and praying is as heavy as a boulder laid on your chest. and although when talking about worldly affairs your chest is more expansive than the sea, when the time of worship comes, it becomes tighter than a knot. - o you whose sleep is heavier than that of a leopard when it comes to your deliverance (from punishment), you have wasted time more precious than jewels. if you catch sight of a sin you leap upon it like a tiger, but if you catch a glimpse of a good deed you dodge and evade it like a fox. when you interact with people you are as treacherous as a wolf. while committing injustice you boldly step forward like a lion… - o you who severed the connection to his lord, return. o you who vowed to reject his lord, repent. you were honoured when iblis (the devil) was ordered to prostrate to you, whereas iblis was cast afar when he refused to do so. yet i truly wonder at you! how could you, inspite of that, make reconciliation with the devil and boycott your lord?! how ruined you are..” - 📗 (paraphrased from ‘seeds of admonishment and reform, by ibn al-jawzi’) - #forevertemporary @gardenofthepious
