Narrated By Abu Musa Al-Ash’ari : Allah’s Apostle said, “The example of a Believer who recites the Quran, is that of a citron which smells good and tastes good; And the example of a Believer who does not recite the Quran, is that of a date which has no smell but tastes sweet; and the example of a hypocrite who recites the Quran, is that of an aromatic plant which smells good but tastes bitter; and the example of a hypocrite who does not recite the Quran, is that of a colocynth plant which has no smell and is bitter in taste.”

(Sahih Bukhari Volume 007, Book 065, Hadith Number 338)

Wudu

It was narrated that ‘Umar ibn al-Khattab رضي الله عنه said: Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said, “Whoever performs Wudu’ and does it well then says -

أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إلَّا اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ، وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّداً عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ
“Ash-hadu an lā ilāha illallah wahdahu lā sharika lah wa “sh-hadu anna Muhammadan ‘abduhu wa Rasuluh.”
(I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah alone, Who has no partner; and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and His Messenger.)
اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْنِي مِنَ التَّوَّابِينَ وَاجْعَلْنِي مِنَ الْمُتَطَهِّرِينَ
“Allahummaj ‘alniīminat-tawwabin waj’alnī minal-mutatahhirīn.”
(O Allah, make me among those who turn to You in repentance, and make me among those who are purified.)

- the eight gates of Paradise will be opened for him, and he may enter through whichever one he wishes.”
(Hadith No. 148, Book of Purification, Sunan An-Nasa’i, Vol. 1)

A beautiful advise!
“I received a message from a sister who is struggling with the hijab and thoughts of taking it off. Here was my response to her
I’m sharing it because it applies to all of our struggles with any disobedience:
I believe what you are going through is not actually about the hijab. It may be related to the heart and your relationship with Allah. The loss of passion for the hijab could just be a symptom.
To fix the root of our problems we need to fix our bond with Allah.
1. Look at your salah. That is the foundation of your bond with Allah. When that is kept strong, the foundation is strong.
2. The Quran. We need to have a relationship with the words of Allah (Quran) to keep the heart alive.
3. Consistent Tawbah and a lot of isteghfar (repentance). This cleans the heart.
4. Company. Be mindful who you take as your closest friends. Do they remind you of Allah and bring you closer to Him, or do they take you farther away?”

Yasmin Mogahed (via islamicrays)

(via hijabislookbk)

When a man has knowledge of Deen, he can lead his family with respect.
When a woman has knowledge of Deen, she can lead her children in humility.
When children have knowledge of Deen, they can lead their parents to Jannah.

Brothers & sisters, please include Dr. Bilal Philips in your Du’a as he is now detained in the Philippines. Let’s pray for his safety and protection. Below is his official statement:

OFFICIAL STATEMENT OF DR. BILAL PHILIPS

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Most Merciful

10 September, 2014
From Immigration Detention, Davao City
Mindanao, Philippines

Dear Friends, Students, and Supporters,
Salaam alaykum. Peace be upon you all.
I would first like to thank you for all your prayers and various positive expressions of care, concern and support. I’m happy to inform you that I am safe and well-treated in Davao City immigration custody, as my request for voluntary deportation is being processed.

Though I appreciate your rallies and demonstrations of support in Marawi City, Zamboanga and elsewhere, I advise you all to keep calm and not let your genuine expressions of support spiral out of control and degenerate into wanton destruction of property and the loss of life and limb.
Please allow the due process of law to take its course. The false allegations and misunderstandings circulating in the media will be tackled legally in order to clear my name and lift the ban on any future visits to the Philippines – God willing. There is sufficient evidence to prove my innocence in my hundreds of youtube video lectures and khutbahs (see my youtube channel: aabphilips), over 50 published books, many of which can be downloaded freely from my website: www.bilalphilips.com or www.kalamullah.com, or the hundreds of posts on my official facebook page: Dr. Bilal Philips, with almost 2 million likes.

As to my being on the no-fly black list of America, I join the ranks of Nelson Mandela who was put on it while he was in Robbin Island, and he remained on the list as president of South Africa until he won the Nobel Peace Prize for the same reason he was put on the list in the first place. Because of a narrow policy of the US and inhospitable atmosphere, I prefer not to go to US like one your local public official in Davao City who shunned going to the US for medical treatment. Not to mention the actual meaning of American label placed on me as an un-indicted co-conspirator in the 1993 attempted bombing of the World Trade Center. In normal language, “un-indicted” simply means “no charges have been filed against me due to lack of evidence”, and “co-conspirator” means “guilty by association”, that someone who the authorities arrested had my name in their telephone book, or they were seen shaking hands with me, or they prayed next to me in a mosque, etc.
Regarding the British 3-year ban, based on a statement taken out of context from a video program originally made in 1995 and rebroadcast along with my other programs continuously in Sharjah TV, UAE, since 2003, it has already been successfully demonstrated to Canadian Immigration authorities that I was misquoted. The ban in Australia follows the American lead blindly and the ban in Kenya also blindly follows the British ban. As for the German lifetime ban unilaterally issued by the Mayor of Frankfurt, it was thrown out of court in Germany last year. The Mayor’s appeal was also rejected by the higher courts, he was made to cover all court costs and the ban was lifted. I was not banned or deported from Bangladesh earlier this year as in commonly falsely reported. I entered the country and left on my own will.

Sensational journalism has also played a major role in demonizing me, like that of the daily newspaper which plastered a picture of me on their front page, Sept. 10th issue, with the heading “Suspected Terrorist Arrested”. The related article contained a series of irresponsible, inflammatory and inaccurate statements from PRO 11 Regional Director Chief Superintendent Wendy G. Rosario. Superintendent Rosario was quoted as saying that I was considered a person of interest because of alleged links to a terrorist group outside the country. I have never had any links nor have I ever been accused of having links to any terrorist group. Superintendent Rosario further stated that I was invited for questioning by the police while lecturing in a mosque which is inaccurate, as I did not lecture in any mosque in Davao, my lecture on “Raising Righteous Children” was a public lecture in the Sunny Point Hotel auditorium attended by Muslims and non-Muslims. He then stated that I was prevented from lecturing in Zamboanga scheduled for the 4 and 5th (correctly the 5th and 6th) which is untrue. I personally decided not to go to Zamboanga when the Mayor of Zamboanga withdrew her support by cancelling the venue and her provision of government security forces. She also requested the Department of Justice to prevent me from coming there. The organizers in Zamboanga requested me to come anyway, assuring security from ex-generals from their ranks, but I thought it prudent not to go since the mayor was personally opposed. He then stated that the Bureau of Immigration issued a blacklist order against me on the 4th September, also untrue. They issued the order on the 5th at the request of the Mayor of Zamboanga, and I arrived in the country on the 4th. He then mentioned that there was a report that I was already blacklisted while failing to mention that the previous blacklisting was lifted by the government. Such irresponsible sensational journalism has been identified by the UK government’s Runymede Report as a major source of Islamophobia. I trust and pray that the majority of the people of the Philippines will not tolerate such attitude.

It is very sad that lecturers and speakers like myself who call to Islamic moderation and oppose extremism, terrorism, indiscriminate violence and revolt, are blocked from conveying this peaceful message to Muslim minority communities. We recognize that extremism is a product of ignorance of true Islamic teachings so we promote in our lectures the acquisition of correct knowledge and the practice of Islam’s authentic teachings. In banning and demonizing us, they have created a vacuum of information which continues to be exploited and filled by extremist elements who easily recruit youthful impressionable followers with emotional messages to their savage, violent and merciless unIslamic methodologies and ideologies.

I have always been a proponent of peaceful solutions to our problems as you all know, the motto of my university (Islamic Online University.com) is “Changing the Nation Through Education”. Please be an active part of this prophetic methodology for change by joining the ranks of over 180,000 registered students in my university, most of whom are studying free of any charge in the free Islamic Studies Diploma program.

Peace be upon you all.

O Mu’min. Do not feel bad if people look at you differently or call you “backward” because of the way you dress and act (with modesty). Remind yourself that Allah has promised Jannah to those who sincerely submit to His will and follow His orders. Be amongst the strangers in this world and in Shaa Allah your sacrifices will be compensated with something far better than the pleasures of this Dunya.

What is the best way to get closer to allah?

allahaljalil:

I don’t know the best way, but I can give some effective suggestions.

1- Fulfil all of the obligatory duties which Allah has bestowed upon you.

2- Allah   says in Hadith Qudsi:
"….and My slave keeps on coming closer to Me through   performing Nawafil (voluntary deeds) until I love him, so I become his sense of   hearing with which he hears, and his sense of sight with which he sees, and his   hand with which he grips, and his leg with which he walks; and if he asks Me, I   will give him, and if he asks My Protection, I will protect him…"   [Bukhari]

3- Read the Quran.

4- Learning the names and meanings of Allah swt.

5- Performing zhikr: Remembrance of Allah indeed is the greatest virtue.(29:46).

6- Making lots of dua: Allah the Exalted, has said: “And your Lord   says: Pray unto me: and I will hear your prayer” (Quran 40:60)

If anyone else has any suggestions please share them so we can all benefit.

Dua to read when you’re in hardship.

sweetchiliniqabae:

Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un, Allahumma ajirni fi musibati wa akhlif li khairan minha

Verily we belong to Allah and truly to Him shall we return. O Allah! Protect me in this calamity that has befallen me and replace it with something better
