Glorious Qur'an

وَمَكَرُواْ وَمَكَرَ اللّهُ وَاللّهُ خَيْرُ الْمَاكِرِينَ

And they (disbelievers) plotted  and Allâh plotted too. And Allâh is the Best of those who plot.

Ale 'Imran v.54

What did you call me???

Definition of Hypocrite :
1. A pretense of having a virtuous character, moral or religious beliefs or principles, etc., that one does not really possess.

2. A pretense of having some desirable or publicly approved attitude.

3. An act or instance of hypocrisy.

Lets take a second to think of the intention behond our actions....
Do we do what we do to show others? So they can look at you and say 'Oh MashAllah look at that person, look how well they did ruku' or 'how long they stood for in salaah'

Who are we doing all these good deeds for? For others to see?

Showing off is one of the major sins - its is SHIRK! 

There are 3 signs of showing off (riyaa) are:
1) Love of praise
2) Fear of criticism
3) Greed of people's possessions

Clear your intention before you start any action, make sure you do it for the sake of Allah the almighty.

Remember this form of shirk is more hidden than a black ant crawling on a dark stone in a moonless night!

O Allah! We seek refuge in You from associating partners with you while we are aware of it and we seek forgiveness from You for that which we are unaware of

How much Khushu do we have in our salaah?
The sahaaba Urwa bin Al-Zubeir had some illness in his leg and he was told by the doctors of the time that that had to amputate it in order to stop the illness from spreading.

He was offered medication in order to lessen the pain, he asked them if it will make him drowsy or the such, and he was told the medication was a form of alcohol, so Urwa refused to take it. 
Rather he told them to amputate his leg when he started his salaah.

He started his salaah and the doctors cut off his leg, he prayed like it was just another prayer…
Subhanallah, he had his leg cut off, let me repeat, his leg was cut off and he had nothing to numb the pain expect salaah.  
SO much concentration that he didnt feel the pain
Yet here if panic when we see a spider on the prayer mat…

Oh Allah increase our khushu in our salaah, make us of the muttaqoon. Ameen

Its the month of Mercy

Ramadhaan is the month of mercy!!

All the big shayateen are locked away,
The gates of Jannah are open and the gates of An-Naar are closed,
It is when Hasanaat (rewards) are multiplied
It is a month whose beginning is mercy, its middle is forgiveness and its end is redemption from the Fire.

“And whoever does evil or wrongs himself but afterwards seeks Allaah’s forgiveness, he will find Allaah Oft‑Forgiving, Most Merciful”
[al-Nisa’ 4:110]

Dont waste this precious month, you may not be here for the next Ramadhaan!

Glorious Qur'an

“ O you who believe! Observing As-Sawm (the fasting) is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may become Al-Muttaqoon (pious)
[al-Baqarah 2:183]

Ramadhaan Kareem

Ramadhaan is finally here!!

Insh Allah we have to fast not only from food but from all things, so we can purify ourselves and our imaan.
