Sabr (patience) and Hard work. Insha Allah.
Sorry, I’ve been busy getting married and all…lol a little blunt but watevs. So I know Ramadan is over (Insha Allah we get to experience it next year), but I am still going to continue to post till I reach Day 30!. It’ll probably take me till the end of the year haha.
Anyway, yesterday while riding [not on a horse] back home, I was looking outside and the sky was so beautiful SubhanAllah! It was Magrib time and the horizon looked like a painting….expect it wasn’t. All the shades and colors, and the half moon was there too! So, I was thinking about how perfect Allah made everything..and yet us humans want the perfect life…We come up with different ideas to make our lives better.
There was a lecture my mom was listening to (just like in my previous post lol) by Mulana Tariq Jameel. I remember the last of it. He was talking about how every human wants the ideal life, family, home, everything. They want something thats better than before. They can’t even think of imperfection. Its because subconsciously, in the back of our minds, we know there is Jannah aka Heaven!
The point is, ‘it is what it is’.
Women are such a topic in this world huh? Women are so important…But, Allah makes sure to keep women on a high standing in Islam!. If you aren’t able to see this, you my friend, are doing it wrong. (It as in Life…lol not trying to be philosophical).
I was in the kitchen (oh, when a women is willing to do housework, not only is it nice to do for the family, but also you are getting reward as Jihad!.
” “Women asked Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam), ‘O Messenger of Allah, by performing Jihad the men have grabbed Allah’s favours. Is there any deed that we women can do through which we can obtain the same reward of performing Jihad?’ The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, ‘Yes, if one of you does the work of her house it will fetch her the same reward as performing Jihad.’” [Baihaqi]All the work that is performed inside the house – whether it be related to cooking, cleaning, taking care of children or organizing things – can be a source of great reward for women. So don’t complain about it. If you want Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) to give you Jannah in return for this simple work, thank Him for providing you with this easy way in which to earn the great reward of Jihad, and do it happily.”
I try to remember that…anyway as I was saying, when I was in the kitchen, my sweet mother put a lecture on of Mulana Tariq Jameel.
He was talking about Maryam aka Mary (Peace be upon her) and he talked about Isa aka Jesus (Peace be upon him). [Hazrat Mariam ra by Maulana Tariq Jameel: http://youtu.be/DnKtoZCS4V8%5D
The link above is in Urdu… But insha Allah I will write more about it in my other posts. I actually wanted to share one of the things that melted my heart. It was that in Islam, women are so pure and honored that only Mary (Peace be upon her) is mentioned for the sake of telling Mary (Peace be upon her) and Jesus (Peace be upon him)’s situation…all the other women aren’t because thats how pure we are supposed to think of women!!!!
Btw Eid Mubarak everyone!!! (I’m finally editing this post, so now its a but late but watevs)
The point was, ‘its all about how you think about why something is the way it is…it defines you and your thinking…sadly people might say and think something opposite when the reason is something else’.
Making sincere Dua….its one of the blessings. SubhanAllah, we are able to ask Allah what ever which we want!. Allah is so kind to us!. Allah tells us to ask Him whatever because He will give!. You only have to belive in Allah, the Creator, and Allah will give!. If not in this world, surely in the hereafter!
“Verily your Lord is Generous and Shy. If His servant raises his hands to Him (in supplication) He becomes shy to return them empty” (Ahmad, Abu Dawood, Tirmidhi)
One of the most powerful Dua’s to make and ask from Allah:
“Rabbana atina fid-dunya hasanatan wa fil ‘akhirati hasanatan waqina ‘adhaban-nar.””Our Lord! grant us good in this world and good in the hereafter, and save us from the chastisement of the fire.” (2:201) Ameen.
You can ask Allah in any language, Allah is the Creator, Allah knows every single one! Oh, BTW MAKING DUA IS A FORM OF IBADAATH (Worship)…so convenient!
And if you dua for someone who isn’t present, it will be answered quicker, and by making Dua for another, its as of you are making Dua for yourself as well!!! Oh, Allah, you ARE the most Kind!
Pst….Dua for me.
Its all about perspective and your level of understanding. Also, so very useless to argue with the ignorant people, who have been brainwashed by what they see around them and start accepting that lifestyle, not because its the ‘norm’ these days, but also because its easy…a pleasurable style of living. You can’t force someone to live another way… Only dua for them that Allah the Mighty and Supreme, will turn their hearts and give them understanding and guide them on the Right path.
I wish some people would just see things how they are meant to be instead of trying to reason with what their ego wants or doesn’t. Be stronger than that!!!
If only. And the mother prays for her child morning and night. If only, you are able to pull the curtains from your eyes. May Allah guide us all. Ameen.
Daily blog posts aren’t for me….I am having issues sleeping.
Dua for me.
