Dear sisters.. you are beautiful.. dear sisters in islam .. we know its hard. we know you look at the pictures of the models and the celebrities and wonder why you can't look like them? we know it hurts to sometimes refrain yourself from plucking those brows or to put on that hijab & abaya. we know it gets hard to walk outside with no make up on, with your natural face, thinking it's not good enough and all of your flaws are showing. you know what else we know? we know you're beautiful, regardless of what you think of yourself. we know that even the slightest inclination of pleasing allah in yourself increases that beauty ten-fold and we know that when allah finds you beautiful, it's all that matters. you're not doing this for the world, remember? you're not even doing it for yourself. imagine your beauty on the day of qiyamah when your face would be glowing and radiant with noor, when you would enter jannah & be more beautiful than the h**r and you would realize that it was this world really wasn't worth the drool. lovely sisters, we are proud of you!
Oh allah, i told you: i'm in pain. you said: 'do not despair of the mercy of allah' (39:53) i told you: many people hurt me. you said: 'so pardon them and ask forgiveness for them' (3:159) oh allah, i told you: i feel i'm alone. you said: 'we are closer to him than [his] jugular vein' (50:16) i told you: my sins are so many. you said: 'and who can forgive sins except allah?' (3:135) oh allah, i told you: do not leave me. you said: 'so remember me; i will remember you...' (2:152) i told you: i'm facing a lot of difficulties in life. you said: 'and whoever fears allah – he will make for him a way out' (65:2) oh allah, i told you: i have many dreams that i want to come true. you said: 'call upon me; i will respond to you.' (40:60) "mankind there has come to you a guidance from your lord and a healing for (the diseases) in your hearts, and for those who believe a guidance and a mercy. (yunus, 10;57)
Someone who doesn't care about your aakhira, doesn't care about you. it's that simple. someone who doesn't care about where you will spend your hereafter, doesn't care about you. they don't care about your well-being, they don't care about your relationship with allaah, and they will leave you in the blink of an eye. because one who can leave allaah to fulfill his desires can leave you easily. if you are in a haraam relationship, think about this... on the day of judgement, your own parents, your own mother and father will not care about you, so what makes you think that your boyfriend/girlfriend will come to your rescue? in fact, the bitter reality is that he/she will blame you and try to pass their sins onto you! if he/she truly loved you, they would marry you. it's simple. no excuses. they would simply approach your parents and ask for your hand in marriage. but so many people take the easy way out, the haraam way out, the cowardly way out. don't be one of those people. don't fall into shaytaan's trap and give into your desires. stay strong and stay in the firm belief that if he truly loved you, he would marry you - and if he can't do that, then he doesn't deserve you or your time. don't be one of those people. don't fall into shaytaan's trap and give into your desires. stay strong and stay in the firm belief that if he truly loved you, he would marry you - and if he can't do that, then he doesn't deserve you or your time. don't ruin your aakhirah for a coward. don't break your home in jannah for someone who will only drag you down with them. true love in islam is taking each other to jannah through marriage, true love is saving eachother from hellfire. may allaah make us a people who have strong faith, may allaah forgive and protect us all. ameen.💖 beautiful photo from @reyhanphotography [[👇tag a friend who will benefit from this post!!👇]]
Shame upon those men who oppress their wives. giving preference to your friends over your wife is oppression. screaming and yelling at your wife is oppression. coming home late each night or coming to bed late each night without a valid excuse is oppression. wasting time on the internet or phone, television or games whilst your wife is waiting for you is oppression. not spending reasonable time with your wife is oppression. not commending her upon her goodness, sacrifice and achievements whilst only harping on her weaknesses is oppression. be fair! not correcting her in the most loving manner and going around publicizing her errors or wrongdoings is oppression. not providing at least the basic food, clothing and shelter for her is oppression. not appreciating that she is someone's daughter or sister and treating her like a s***e is oppression. allowing your mother or family members to disrespect or maltreat your wife is oppression. allowing others to invade her privacy is oppression. not giving her the rest that she deserves post child birth is oppression. swearing and cursing your wife is oppression. making false promises to your wife is oppression. these are just some ways that men oppress their wives. shame upon those men who oppress their wives! are you one of them? well, change your ways, apologize and repent before the almighty overtakes you with his wrath. remember the messenger (s) says, "the best of you are those best to their wives." same goes for the wives who oppress their husbands
“i know it’s haram but … i love him!!” this is the answer that some sisters give when they tell them that having bf is haram in islam. so this is a message for everyone of them: “ dear sister, generally, a muslimah should only love the man she will accept to marry because of his commitment to his deen! the more he will be closed to allah, the more she should love him. what about you? why do you love him? is it because of his sweet love words? be certain that they are nothing but shaytan whispers!! is it because of his promises of marriage? if he really wants you, he would be a real man and come to your house to ask for your hand in marriage… if he is a real man, he would approach your wali not you!! have you ever asked yourself if he truly loves you? because if he truly does, then he wouldn’t let you face hell !! true love is when you pray to be gathered in jannah with the one you love! that’s true love, and it only comes with halal, after marriage! have you ever asked yourself if he would let his sister have boyfriend? a real muslim man would have jealousy on his maharim (his mother, sister, wife…) and if he has no jealousy, so he is “dayouth”as prophet mohammad (sallaallahu alaihi wa sallam) described this type of man! if he would let his sister to have bf, then you will know his true value, but if he would refuse to let her have bf then you will know your true value in his sight!! dear sister, know that no matter how much he “loves” you in this dunya , he will hate you 1000x more than that in the akhirah. yes!!he will hate you, he will blame you for your relationship when he will be between the hands of allah, and he will beg for you to be thrown into the fire instead of him! allah says in qur’an :“al akhillaa (friends/the lovers who had forbidden relationships) on that day will be foes one to another(they will be like enemies) except al-muttaqun (the ones who feared allah) ”( 43:67) is that the kind of love you want? a temporary feeling you get in dunya, a feeling inspired by shaytan which turn to hate in akhirah?!! dear, please wake up before it’s too late, you still have time to make things right, leave this haram relationship right now! 👇👇👇
Allah(subhana wa ta’la) mentions “hijab” for men before hijab for the women yet we men usually don’t follow what’s written for us but point out things what a female has to do. allah states in qur’an: “say to the believing men that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty: that will make for greater purity for them: and allah is well acquainted with all that they do! [al-qur’an�24:30]” .
Beautiful reminder she was at the station sitting politely waiting for the train, wearing her full loose hijab. while she was sitting there, she saw a young muslim man coming with his old mother. he was holding her kindly then he helped her to sit gently to wait for the train. he kept talking to his mom in an honorable way while she lowered her eyes, so happy that there are young muslim like him who honor their mothers. when she raised her head, after few minutes, to see if the train came or not, she found that the same young muslim man was looking at her smiling! she blushed and lowered her gaze.. when the train came finally, she rode it quickly. she realized that the young man rode in the same coach as her and stood in front of her with his mom. she felt his eyes were on her! why is he looking at you like that? isn’t he supposed to lower his gaze?! a satanic voice whispered in her ears: “raise your head! look at him don’t ignore him, he won’t eat you!! he is good muslim man, didn’t you see how nice he is with his mother? maybe he likes you and wants to marry a committed muslim girl like you! don’t lose this opportunity, just raise your head and take a look at him!” she was so confused, should she raise her head to look at him?! suddenly, this ayah from quran came through her mind: "tell the believing women that they should lower their gaze." [24:31] and she remembered this hadith: "the furtive glance is one of the poisoned arrows of shaitan. whoever forsakes it for fear of god will receive from him, great and glorious is he, a faith the sweetness of which he will find within his heart. [tabarani] ya allah! she was about to disobey her lord! how could she do it? where is her hayaa (shyness) in front of her lord? where is her fear of him? many would say that it was just a quick glance, maybe he really wants to marry her, etc… but she knew that any blessing coming from allah (like marriage for example) shouldn’t be obtained by his disobedience! so, she kept lowering her gaze during the whole trip. when she got off the train, she just kept walking away from it to go to her house. she didn’t look behind her or turn around, because her hayaa stopped her
Who said that a committed muslimah is “immune” to love?! she is human, isn’t she? she has a beating heart in her chest like everybody else! but she only keeps in mind that “prevention is better than cure”. so she would stay away from any source of fitnah and from what allah forbade in her relationship with the opposite sex. and if she falls in love with someone, a true muslimah wouldn’t let her heart beat her, she wouldn’t let her feelings overtake her. it’s true that she is weak like everyone else but she knows that allah is the only one who strengthens her. her imaan and faith are always her guide and power! and like any other situation when she feels weak, she would turn to her lord for help. it means that she wouldn’t share love songs with the one she loves or tell him love words or draw a heart for him. she wouldn’t give him a single hint about her feelings! her chastity, modesty and most of all her fear of allah would stop her from confessing her love to him. but she would confess her true feelings only to the controllers of hearts, she would turn to him for hidayah (guidance) and make this dua: “oh allah, i love one of your servants, so if he is good for me, join us together in halal under your satisfaction, but if he’s not, then turn him away from me and don’t let my heart get attached to him!”
