A world of deception

We live in a world filled with lies, something that was set up to make us fall down. To test us. A place where everything that seems to be bad can be seen as fun and good, and everything that is good can be seen as lame. We’re put in a place where theres a lot against us. A place where people live as if there is nothing left after death. But the truth is that this life is only temporary. A world made by The Almighty to test us. This world is made to knock you down, it was made to test your faith in Allah, to test your love for him. filled with deceptions of the shaytan, but keep strong in the faith of Allah. Hold on tightly to his rope, and when you feel yourself slipping too far into the dunya, then read quran. Read it in a language that you understand, listen to it. The words of your lord in a book sent to guide mankind. Let his holy text enter your heart and bring you back to the reality that your worldly indulgences aren’t forever.

It can be dangerous to fall too far into this dunya because eventually you will slip away from the one who created you. Remember him often, and remember him in all you do. Establish your salah to avoid forgetting your purpose in this life. Remember where you came from, remember who controls the breaths you take and who is in control of everything you have. Talk to your creator, one of the best parts of islam is that you have your creator closer to you than your jugular vein, a lord you can talk to about anything, any time of the day, and the best thing is that he already knows what you’re going to say. Just remember Allah in your daily life and avoid things that take you away from him. He is the one that judges you when your book of deeds are opened. So please him before anyone else. Don’t let this worldly life make you forget your true purpose.

Quran-Guidance-to-humanity

Allah may test you, but he is always close to you. He sent us the Quran and the prophet (pbuh) as a guidance, so use them. Ask Allah for strength and guidance, in a world filled with deceptions. Stay strong in your faith and remember that just because the whole world may be doing something wrong, it doesn’t make it right. May Allah guide us and grant us Jannah. May he make us successful in all we do and give us the best in this life and in the hereafter. May he forgive all our sins and bring us closer to those we love. May he help us to do good and bring us closer to him. Ameen.

Change

We all want to be better Muslims. Some of us may have more to change than others, however we all have our own individual connection with Allah. We are all on different levels of faith, so changing can sometimes be difficult. One person may pray their 5 salahs on time everyday without doubt but may struggle wearing hijab, whilst another person may be completely covered and dressed in an Islamic manner but struggle to wake up for fajr.
Just because it may be difficult to change it doesn’t mean it’s impossible. If you have the right intention and you’re willing to do something for the sake of Allah, then Insha’allah he will make it easy for you. Start off with something small, and then gradually increase the frequency, until eventually you’re exactly where you wanted to be. Don’t expect people to just immediately put on a hijab for example. It’s difficult. And it takes time, instead rather than judging that person, encourage them. Help one another to be better. Inspire one another. Allah didn’t make this world paradise. It can be a trial, especially when we live in a world where it can be difficult to stand out. But know that wherever you are, Allah is with you. And whatever struggle you go through to be better for the sake of him, he sees and he acknowledges. The most merciful, the most kind, he knows and sees all things, and he knows what’s in our hearts. Allah never leaves you, he may test you, but he is ALWAYS with you.

surah TaHa verse 26 ‘And ease my task for me’

So start off with a small step, and gradually begin to increase the good which you do and Insha’allah Allah will help us to be the best we can be. May Allah guide us and grant us jannah. May he forgive us for all the sins we may have committed knowingly and unknowingly. May he protect us from all evil and bring us closer to those we love. Ameen.

Thankful

 Being thankful isn’t always so common. We usually pray our most when were in need of something or when were in trouble, then once the almighty clears our path for us, we can slowly begin to decrease our concentration in prayer. But we shouldn’t. We should remember what Allah has done for us, all he has given us, and all he has blessed us with. Allah has blessed us with Islam, and with the knowledge that he is the one, the all hearing, the all seeing, the all knowing, and his attributes go on. 

Allah is the one who puts you in the position you are in, and even though that may be difficult, thank him for everything he has blessed you with alongside that, then ask him for his help and ask of him. your lord always hears you, and he loves you to ask of him and to be thankful to him. No matter how difficult a situation may be thank Allah for all the blessings he’s given you, and if you feel like you have nothing worldly to be thankful for, thank him for blessing you with iman and faith. He has chosen you to be guided, he has given you a chance to get to Jannah, so don’t blow that chance.

‘The beautiful thing about communicating with your lord is that you don’t always have to put your feelings into words.’

 

Allah has picked you to follow islam and he has given you guidance to do so, to make it easy. So thank him. Thank him for the Quran and all it contains, its help, its guidance, its comfort, its hope. Thank him for the gift of Salah, being able to talk to your lord 5 times a day. Thank him for the power of dua, communicating with your creator any time you want and anywhere you want, whatever state you’re in. Thank him for being able to breathe, for life. Thank him for the people you love and ask him to keep those people close to you and to always keep those people happy. Thank him for guiding you and making you able to ask of him. Glorify and worship Allah in a way that will make your life content. Seek happiness and peace through his guidance, and seek comfort through prayer. Thank him for bringing you out of the darkness and into the light, thank him for helping you when you were at your lowest point, and thank him for being there when everyone else failed to soothe your aching heart.

May he bring us closer to those we love and may he help the muslim ummah come together. Ameen.
