    Allah (swt) is watching over us, all the time, out of His care for us. And this should have a profound effect on the way we live.

    One of things that should warm our hearts when we know Allah is ar-Raqeeb (the all-Observant) is that we are never, ever alone. When we are up late at night working on an essay, or awake in the early hours of the morning getting ready for work, Allah is with us.

  • so ii was scrolling down on my calendar & then ii got randomly to year 2325 .. ii founded that funny & ii was wondering how old will ii be .. so ii calculated my age & it gave 332 .. 332 years old .. then it wasn’t funny anymore .. because ii realized that life really isn’t forever .. we get so distracted by everything around us that we feel like we’ll be on earth eternally .. when ii saw 332, the first thing that came through my mind was ‘ii won’t be in earth anymore’ & then the only thing ii was feeling in my heart was to pray, to pray for a place, for a beautiful place, in the hereafter, with my loved ones, & all those people who suffered in life, to pray that one day, in 2325, someone will read this, & realize that at their year, ii was supposed to be 332 years old .. but life isn’t forever.

  • Surah Al-‘Asr is a fascinating surah because it sort of sets the blueprint and the cycle of a believer’s life. Think about it:

    ﷽ 

    1. By time, وَالعَصرِِ

    2. Indeed the mankind is in lose, إِنَّ الإِنسٰنَ لَفى خُسرٍ

    3. Except for those who have believed and done righteous deeds and advised each other to truth and advised each other to patience. إِلَّا الَّذينَ ءامَنوا وَعَمِلُوا الصّٰلِحٰتِ وَتَواصَوا بِالحَقِّ وَتَواصَوا بِالصَّبرِ

    A person’s *lifetime* seems to follow a certain pattern: We are all in loss and in danger of losing our Hereafter - except for the believer. But when belief enters your heart, you naturally start doing deeds of righteousness. But then belief can’t stay suppressed in your heart and so you advise others and enjoin goodness - most importantly, you stand up for the Truth. And the moment you stand up for the Truth in this world, is the moment you will need to gather all the patience you can to overcome the obstacles that will no doubt come your way. This is because men and women of truth are tested and they are often fought by those who are still in lingering in loss from amongst Mankind… Subhan’Allah.

    It is no wonder that the likes of Imam al-Shafi’i used to say “If nothing else but this (Surah Al-’Asr) were to be revealed, then it would have been enough for them as guidance and righteousness.”

  • ﷽ 

    Today is the first day of the month of Sha’ban, the month before the coming of the month of Ramadan insha’Allah. The coming of this month reminds us even more the approach of Ramadan, the holy month awaited by all. This is an opportunity to prepare Ramadan through the month of Sha’ban in the obedience of Allah by the example of our prophet Muhammad () who fasted during this month. You can also prepare, insha’Allah, by increasing the dhikr of Allah (سبحانه و تعالى), by reading Quran and by fasting. This will allow (بإذن الله) to welcome Ramadan with more faith, piety & with a peaceful heart !
