Friday spiritual tonic

In the Name of Allaah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.

Worship Allaah when conditions are favorable and even when they are not. 

If we only worship Allaah when it's easy to do that then we haven't yet been exposed to the reality of worship. 

Be determined to change your sinful ways to righteousness and pray to Allaah to aid you. 

Believe you me, it takes a resolution of willing to abandon the life of sin in order to embrace the life of total obedience to Allaah. 

‎The initial spiritual energy needed to repel satanic weapons is enormous but once achieved it becomes easy to obey Allaah.

One of the most effective ways to abandon a sin is to run away from the object of lust. 

If what leads to Zina is seductive pictures of the opposite sex or provocative videos, then lower your gaze and don't look at haram.

Satan sets up traps that seem harmless just to lure people into committing the most shameful deeds. Be weary of Satan's deception. 
‎Some have confessed that it's from enlarging of the DP, to pornography and to either Zina or masturbation. Fear Allaah with regards to the sight.

‎To some the blessings of the internet is an avenue to secure entry into Jannah and to some it is a convenient tool to make it to Jahannam. May Allaah save us.

A lot of people trespass the limits of Allaah by abusing their free time, take advantage of the time you have now before it depletes away.

‎The time and the era is frustrated with the seductive display of nudity in all forms, to be successful in this era is to be modest. 

‎Free-mixing and the demystification of gender barrier under the pretext of civilization and progressiveness has tore our Eeman apart.

When  lowering of the gaze is seen as backwardness, then no sin will be too difficult to commit, because the lustful eyes is a window to all shameful deeds. 

If one claims that its difficult to lower the gaze because of so many seductive pictures and provocation around, then also there are so many ahadith to be read. The choice of what to look at is at our disposal.

Speak the truth no matter how many people detach themselves from you. The goal is to encourage each other to make it to Jannah in shaa Allaah.


Let this life be for you and do not let this life be against you. ‎

Consistency in piety

In the Name of Allaah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful. 
The mother of the believers Aisha (RA) said that Rasulullaah (Pbuh) said: "The deeds most beloved by Allaah (are those) done regularly, even if they are small." Bukhari and Muslim
It is now weeks after Ramadan, don't abandon the practices adopted during Ramadan. 

‎It's easy to worship Allaah when every other person does that, e.g during Ramadan but the real test is to worship Him when no one does.

It was easy for people to pray Fajr on time during Ramadan because almost everybody at home was awake, the real test is to do that now. 

During Ramadan the entire family woke up at night for Tahajjud, don't let laxity make you sleep throughout the night now. 

Obedience to Allaah is aptly demonstrated by the sincere believers during favorable times and also during unfavorable situations. 

With Ramadan, was an increased good deeds. Please don't extirpate your good deeds with bad deeds after Ramadan. 
If we can maintain consistency with Qur'anic recitation, regular charity, lowering of gaze throughout the month of Ramadan without any headache, I guess we can even after Ramadan.

Don't alter your piety after Ramadan. Keep the positive enthusiasm on the path of righteousness especially now that obedience to Allaah is not as common as it was during Ramadan.‎

Gems for the Seeker of Jannah

‎In the Name of Allaah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful. 

"And those who kept their duty to their Lord will be led to Paradise in groups, till, when they reach it, and its gates will be opened (before their arrival for their reception) and its keepers will say: Salamun 'Alaikum (peace be upon you)! You have done well, so enter here to abide therein." Q39:73

The great commentator of the Qur'an al-Haafidh ibn Katheer said the gates of paradise will be opened for the pious as a sign of honor, and the angelic gatekeepers will meet them with glad tidings, greetings and praise.

In Jannah, it is at the discretion of our imagination to think of whatever is dearest to us and such will be fulfilled at an instance. 

If this is not enough to spur us to righteousness then I guess the following hadith of the Prophet (Pbuh) recorded by Bukhari and Muslim and also by Imam Ahmad on the strength of Abu Hurayrah (RA) would:

The Messenger of Allaah (Pbuh) said: "The first group to enter Paradise will enter looking like the moon on the night when it is full. They will not spit there, or blow their noses, or defecate. Their vessels and combs will be of gold and silver, their censers will be of aloeswood and their sweat will be musk. Each of them will have two wives, the marrow of whose shin bones will be visible from beneath the skin because of their beauty. There will be no disputes between then and there will be no hatred; their hearts will be as if one heart. They will glorify Allaah morning and evening."

‎Brothers and sisters in Islam, the greatest loss is to lose the opportunity to make it to Jannah.
 
To earn the pleasure of Allaah is to avoid His displeasure.

‎Know that, sincerely repenting to Allaah privileges the most sinful person with prosperity in both the worlds.

‎In Jannah, there will be no depression and the fruits of Jannah will be brought close and they will not be restricted to seasons or weather.

No one enters Paradise except a Muslim soul whose deeds and words were good with an excellent effort to please Allaah at all times.
‎Suppress your lust for the sake of Allaah and see how Allaah will fulfil each and every goal of yours.
   
We ask Allaah to make us among the people of Jannah.‎

Satan's Web

In the Name of Allaah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.

[Satan] said, ‘Because You have put me in error, I will surely sit in wait for them on Your straight path.‎ Then I will come to them from before them and from behind them and on their right and on their left, and You will not find most of them grateful [to You].’ Q7: 16-17‎. 
Allaah has given man the intelligence to detect the path of Satan in order to save himself from the disobedience of Allaah, because disobeying Allaah only makes the punishment of Allaah lawful on him.

The nature of intelligent people is that when they hear of the punishment of Allaah, they abandon the sin they are accustomed to even though it requires strong will and persistence in prayers.

Satan destroys the sinner by creating an atmosphere of despondency in his heart such that he becomes convinced that his sins are so enormous and many that Allaah will never forgive and pardon him.

However, when it comes to the pious he destroys him through pride and complacency and mostly the pious sometimes if he or she doesn't imbibe humility then an attitude of holier than thou crops up and this is a more serious sin.

‎Satan hypes our confidence when we commit sins and after the sin he abandons us because Allaah describes him as an ever deserter at the time of need.

My message to one and all is that we should strive our utmost to:‎


‎Live as a Muslim, act as a Muslim, and die as a Muslim.‎

Appreciating Allaah

In the Name of Allaah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful. 

"We will show them Our Signs in the universe, and within themselves, until it becomes clear to them that it (the Qur'an) is the truth. Is it not sufficient in regard to your Lord that He is a witness over all things?." Q41:53

Look around you, nay look at your own creation...from a clay, to a drop of sperm, to a clot of blood, to a flesh to a life being. Allaah Alone is able to this.

The earth belongs to Allaah, the crops and the grains belong to Allaah, the rain cloud containing about 300,000,000 litres of water belong to Allaah.

Our observable universe, nay our milky way is housing around 300 billion stars according to the estimate of astronomers.

It was said that if a second is given each to name all the stars in our Milky Way, it will take about 300 trillion years and yet we will not know their exact total.

‎The sun that rose 50,000 years ago still rose today and will rise tomorrow from the same point and direction. Allaah is the Lord of perfection and orderliness.
 ‎
Is there anyone besides Allaah who is controlling the universe? 

Pay attention! Creation belongs to Allaah, Decree belongs to Allaah. 

‎No sustainer besides Allaah and d‎ependence on Allaah is the key to a perfect life. ‎
It's not our intelligence, it's not our connections, it's not our planning that gives us wealth it's what Allaah has decreed that comes to us and this meets us earlier than our death would.

‎Look around you, which animal do you see stocking food for the next day, yet they get sustenance when it comes. Only Allaah provides.
 ‎
‎Fear Allaah and He will protect you and know that ‎the value of a believer is not kept in pounds and shillings nor in naira and kobo, the criterion of a believer is kept in Eeman, his adherence to the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh), his absolute dependence on Allaah for everything and good character.

Above Allaah, to fully appreciate your Allaah, fear Him at all times, spend your days in fasting and brighten your nights with Tahajjud.


May Allaah make it easy for us to practice what we preach.
