Striving

Its not easy being a practicing muslim in these western countries that we live in.


But by the will of Allah we get by,
And by the will of Allah our imaan either strengthens or weakens.....

Living in the west is a form of Jihaad upon muslims and Jihaad is a very virtuous act in the eyes of Allah.

Jihaad means to struggle for the sake of the Almighty. 
Resisting drinking alcohol is a form of Jihaad,
Wearing the correct islamic clothing in non-muslim countries is a form of Jihaad,
Fasting,
Travelling long distance to go to a good masjid,
Controlling your anger,
And the list goes on....

 Unfortunately many muslims get drawn into the traps of shaytan, they end up being 'modernist' muslims who listen to music and wear tight clothing and hold functions where there is free mixing and so on and so forth....
It's such a shame, it almost feels like they do this to please the non-muslims, to show them that we are 'normal'. Why should we have to show them anything? We aren't like them! We are blessed because Allah guided us and we should help spread the word of Islam.

 
Lets not be like those muslims who pray when they feel like or wear hijaab when they feel like.

Lets be like those muslims who fought in for the sake of Allah and for the sake of  Islam and protected the Prophet.

May Allah keep us on the straight path and grant us a place in Jannat.

Ameen .
