Important things to do before Going To The Masjed ?

Important_things_to_do_before_Going_To_The_Masjed ?
going to the mosque to pray is very important in Islam, some scholars argue that it is a must to go to pray the 5 prayers in the mosque. also it is forbidden to miss Friday prayer at mosque if you have no excuse.

Now lets talk about the right manner for Muslims to take when going to the mosque according to Quran. 

(31. O Children of Adam!Take your adornment to every Masjid, and eat and drink, but waste not by extravagance, certainly He (ALLAH) likes not the wasteful.)
﴿يَـبَنِى ءَادَمَ خُذُواْ زِينَتَكُمْ عِندَ كُلِّ مَسْجِدٍ وكُلُواْ وَاشْرَبُواْ وَلاَ تُسْرِفُواْ إِنَّهُ لاَ يُحِبُّ الْمُسْرِفِينَ ﴾
This honorable Ayah refutes the idolators'practice of performing Tawaf around the Sacred House while naked. Muslim, An-Nasa'i and Ibn Jarir, (the following wording is that of Ibn Jarir) recorded that Shu`bah said that Salamah bin Kuhayl said that Muslim Al-Batin said that Sa`id bin Jubayr said that Ibn `Abbas said, "The idolators used to go around the House while naked, both men and women, men in the day and women by night. The woman would say, "Today, a part or all of it will be unveiled, but whatever is exposed of it, I do not allow.'' ALLAH said in reply,
خُذُواْ زِينَتَكُمْ عِندَ كُلِّ مَسْجِدٍ
(Take your adornment to every Masjid,) Al-`Awfi said that Ibn `Abbas commented on:(Take your adornment to every Masjid) on "There were people who used to perform Tawaf around the House while naked,and ALLAH ordered them to take adornment,meaning, wear clean, proper clothes that cover the private parts. 

people were commanded to wear their best clothes when performing every prayer.'' Mujahid, `Ata', Ibrahim An-Nakha`i, Sa`id bin Jubayr, Qatadah, As-Suddi, Ad-Dahhak and Malik narrated a similar saying from Az-Zuhri, and from several of the Salaf.

They said that this Ayah was revealed about the idolators who used to perform Tawaf around the House while naked. This Ayah (7:31), as well as the Sunnah,encourage wearing the best clothes when praying, especially for Friday and `Id prayers. It is also recommended ﴿for men

﴾ to wear perfume for prayer, because it is adornment, and to use Siwak for it is part of what completes adornment. The best color for clothes is white, for Imam Ahmad narrated that Ibn `Abbas said that the Messenger of Allah said,

الْبَسُوا مِنْ ثِيَابِكُمُ الْبَيَاضَ فَإِنَّهَا مِنْ خَيْرِ ثِيَابِكُمْ، وَكَفِّنُوا فِيهَا مَوْتَاكُمْ وَإِنَّ خَيْرَ أَكْحَالِكُمُ الْإثْمَدُ فَإِنَّهُ يَجْلُو الْبَصَرَ وَيُنْبِتُ الشَّعَر
(Wear white clothes, for it is among your best clothes, and also wrap your dead with it. And Ithmid (antimony) is among the best of your Kuhl, for it clears the sight and helps the hair grow.) This Hadith has a sound chain of narration, consisting of narrators who conform to the conditions and guidelines of Imam Muslim. Abu Dawud, At-Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah

also recorded it, and At-Tirmidhi said, "Hasan Sahih.''

The story of a man who made a promise to tell the truth


Here is a story of a man who did a lot of bad things, but his promise to tell the truth saved him.

Telling the truth is a very good habit. If you always speak the truth, you can save yourself from a lot of trouble!

Once a man came to the prophet Muhammad (S) and said, "Oh prophet of Allah, I have many bad habits. Which one of them should I give up first?" The prophet said, "Give up telling lies first and always speak the truth." The man promised to do so and went home.

At night the man was about to go out to steal. Before setting out, he thought for a moment about the promise he made with the prophet. "If tomorrow the prophet asks me where have I been, what shall I say? Shall I say that I went out stealing? No, I cannot say that. But nor can I lie. If I tell the truth, everyone will start hating me and call me a thief. I would be punished for stealing."

So the man decided not to steal that night, and gave up this bad habit.

Next day, he felt like drinking wine, when he was about to do so, he said to himself, "What shall I say to the prophet if he asks me what did I do during the day? I cannot tell a lie, and if I speak the truth people will hate me, because a Muslim is not allowed to drink wine." And so he gave up the idea of drinking wine.

In this way, whenever the man thought of doing something bad, he remembered his promise to tell the truth at all times. One by one, he gave up all his bad habits and became a good Muslim and a very good person.

If you always speak the truth, you can be a good person, a good Muslim whom Allah likes and favors. If Allah - our Creator - is pleased with us, He will reward us with HEAVEN, which is a place of happiness and joy.

The Man who met a righteous struggling woman on internet ( I noticed she was avoiding me )

The_ Man_who_met _a _righteous _struggling _woman _on _internet

The Main reason i posted this story is  to tell you that we still can use this social media in something which bring us closer to Allah. We can meet people, help people , aid someone, we have to admit there are many great and good things we can use this technology  through it.

It is not my story but it is a true story happen and i believe it will continue to happen. It is a true story which telling you my sisters you have to be strong in the face of struggle and in the face of difficulty knowing that Allah is always hiding something good for you.

it is a story to tell us men that we need to protect our sisters from our selves , we need to stay strong in the face of shitan , and always have a clear intention towards others and try to aid them not to use them.

I saw her. Mashaa'Allaah she was looking stunning not through her pictures but her profile

I saw her. Mashaa'Allaah she was looking stunning not through her pictures but her profile. Yeah, with curiosity I went through her profile. She was a Face - veiled woman [Niqaabi] 

After well checked, I sent her a friend request and sent her a message. I started my conversation with Salaam and asking her about her health, life and what does she doing. 

I noticed she was avoiding me. I insisted. She avoid me again but I was so persistent that I made her replied my salam.

To my Surprise, When I asked her if she will chat with me tomorrow.. She said “NO”
I had several questions in my mind but I asked her reason. She replied the same answer again which is: NO. THIS IS BAD and forbidden.

I sat quietly and began to think. 

Soubhan'Allaah, I am a stranger to her. She could have been led to me easily specially in this fitnah world with all these temptations but She, keep in mind her fear of [GOD- Taqwa], combat and struggle against Satan’s traps and protected herself. I apologized to her and cancel my friend request.
Then I supplicate to Allaah:

“All Praise be to YOU, O Allaah 

Just like this Muslim woman have protected herself from me and from Satan’s traps..Likewise Protect my woman whom you’ve made for me from all the men who approaches her with envious purposes until we meet.And Reward immensely the Muslim woman who struggled and said NO to me.”

Who are the best women ?

It is  a very important question for me and almost for all Muslims, women are vital element in our life, we depend on them we count on them to pass our days. I like to say that women are consider the shield that protect us daily.

Who _are _the _best _women _?

Behind any successful man you can find a women who supported him during his hard life, made him focus in his work or his field. I would like to believe that woman is number two after Allah  in any success a man can achieve. Here  I am not talking about wives here I am talking about women in general Mothers, wives, sisters and daughters.

Now, no one can answer this question who are the best women better than our Prophet peace be upon him. Abū Hurayrah (may Allāh be pleased with him) narrated that the Prophet ﷺ was asked:
❞أي النساء خير؟❝

❝Which is the best of women?❞
The Prophet ﷺ replied:
❞التي تسره إذ نظر، وتطيعه إذا أمر، ولا تخالفه في نفسها وماله بما يكره.❝

❝The one who makes (her husband) pleased when he looks at her, and she obeys him when he orders her (to do something), and she does not differ with him (i.e disobey him) with regards to her self or his wealth by (doing) that which he dislikes.❞
[Reported by al-Nasā'ī - Hadīth Sahīh]

3 unique attributes are extracted from this narration:

  • Her commitment to the Dīn, her character, her behaviour and her appearance all make him pleased and delighted.
  • She strives to please him by obeying him, as long as it does not result in disobedience to her Creator. 
  • She always makes sure to protect her self by preserving her honour/chastity and his wealth/property while he is away from her.

What is Marriage ? great examples

Marriage is so much more than love and romance. It has to be.

A couple struggles together to cope when there is a miscarriage, and the loss of love, dreams, and excitement they had for that child.

A couple struggles together when the bank account is low, hospital bills from a sick child are stacking up, and more work or a higher salary is hard to come by.

What_is_ Marriage_ ? _great _examples

A couple struggles together when one of their parents becomes ill, and after years of care, finally returns to our Lord.

A couple struggles together through the tantrums of the toddler years, and the storms of trying to keep a close hold on their kids in the teens and young adult years.

A couple struggles together when facing the loss of their home, or car, or job and how to recreate stability at a time when there seems to be none.

A couple struggles together when one spouse’s iman is low, and their faith is teetering on the edge, while the other strives hard to keep them both at a safe distance away from that same sharp edge and dramatic fall.

Marriage is not just about love and romance. It’s also about fulfilling this ayah:
“And of His signs is that He created for you from yourselves mates that you may find *tranquillity* in them; and He placed between you affection and mercy. Indeed in that are signs for a people who give thought.” Quran 30:21
What_is_ Marriage_ ? _great _examplesLove and romance are what surrounds the marriage to make ease in hard times, laughter in the midst of stress, passion at the most ironic times.

But it’s depth, the meaning of love, and even romance,should be given so much more depth and value. Hollywood romance doesn’t even come close to this kind of beauty.

Love is worth the struggle, and the struggle is beautiful.

The Reward of the Righteous in Paradise

Some Details concerning the Reward of the Righteous in Paradise and what it contains of Delights.
Allah says : (So, Allah saved them from the evil of that Day, and gave them Nadrah (a light of beauty) and joy.) This is used as a way of eloquence in stating similarity (i.e., two similar things).
(So, Allah saved them from the evil of that Day,) meaning, He protects them from that which they fear of it.

(and gave them Nadrah (a light of beauty)) meaning, in their faces. (And joy) in their hearts. Al-Hasan Al-Basri, Qatadah, Abu `Aliyah and Ar-Rabi` bin Anas all stated this. This is similar to Allah's statement, (Some faces that Day will be bright, laughing, rejoicing at good news.) This is because if the heart is happy, then the face will be enlightened. As Ka`b bin Malik said in his lengthy Hadith about Allah's Messenger , whenever he was happy, then his face will be radiant until it will be as if it is a piece of the moon. `A'ishah said, "The Messenger of Allah entered into my home happy and his facial expression was glowing.'' And the Hadith continues. 

Allah then says, (And their recompense because they were patient) meaning, due to their patience He will give them, bestow upon them and accommodate them with Paradise and silken garments. This means a home that is spacious, a delightful life and fine clothing. Al-Hafiz Ibn `Asakir said in his biography of Hisham bin Sulayman Ad-Darani, "Surat Al-Insan was recited to Abu Sulayman Ad-Darani, and when the reciter reached the Ayah where Allah says,

The Reward of the Righteous in Paradise
(And their recompense shall be Paradise, and silken garments, because they were patient.) he (Abu Sulayman) said, `Because they were patient in leaving off their desires in the world.'''

Shirk [Polytheism] and its categories

The opposite of Tawheed is Shirk which means in Islamic terminology – the act of associating a partner with Allah.

There are three types of Shirk.

Shirk [Polytheism] and its categories

[Ash-Shirk Al-Akbar (Major Polytheism)]

Major polytheism is to devote any form of worship to anyone other than Allah. Allah will never forgive it, nor will He accept with it any good deeds as Allah the Almighty said in [Qur'an – 4:116]: ''Verily, Allah forgives not (the sin of) setting up partners (in worship) with Him, but He forgives whom He wills sins other than that. And whoever sets up partners in worship with Allah, has indeed strayed far away.''

The Almighty also said in [Qur'an – 5:72]: ''And the Messiah (Jesus) said: 'O Children of Israel! Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord.' Verily, whosoever sets up partners (in worship) with Allah, then Allah has forbidden Paradise to him and the Fire will be his abode. And for the Zalimun (wrongdoers and polytheists) there are no helpers.''

He, the Almighty, further said in [Qur'an – 25:23]: ''And We shall turn to whatever deed they (disbelievers, polytheists, sinners etc) did, and We shall make such deeds as scattered floating particles of dust.''

The Almighty further said in [Qur'an – 39:65]: ''If you join others in worship with Allah, (then) surely, (all) your deeds will be in vain, and you will certainly be among the losers.''
He, the Almighty, also said in [Qur'an – 6:88]:''And if they had joined in worship others with Allah, all that they used to do would have been of no benefit to them.''
Shirk [Polytheism] and its categories

[The major polytheism (Shirk Al-Akbar) has four sub categories]

  • Polytheism in invocation (i.e. supplicating to other than Allah), as He the Almighty said in [Qur'an – 29:65]: ''And when they embark on a ship, they invoke Allah, making their Faith pure for Him only; but when He brings them safely to land, behold, they give a share of their worship to others.''

  • Polytheism in intention, will and purpose, as it states in [Qur'an – 11:15, 16]:''Whosoever desires the life of the world and its glitter, to them We shall pay in full (the wages of) their deeds therein and they will have no diminution therein. They are those for whom there is nothing in the Hereafter but the Fire, and vain are the deeds they did therein. And of no effect is that which they used to do.''

  • Polytheism in obedience (i.e. showing readiness to comply with the orders of others in disobedience to Allah): Evidence is Allah's Statement in [Qur'an – 9:31]: ''They (Jews and Christians) took their rabbis and their monks to be their lords besides Allah, (by obeying them in things that they made lawful or unlawful according to their own desires without being ordered by Allah), and (they also took as their Lord) Messiah, son of Mary, while they (Jews and Christians) were commanded (in the Torah and the Gospel) to worship none but One Ilah (God – Allah), none has the right to be worshipped but He. Glorified is He (far above is He) from having the partners they associate.''Its interpretation undoubtedly refers to the obedience of religious scholars (Ulama) and other people of knowledge in disobedience to Allah, and not supplicating to them. As the Prophet (Sall Allahu Alayhi Wasalam) explained to Adi Ibn Hatim (R.A) that worship here meant obedience to them in their sinful acts.

  • Polytheism in love (i.e. showing love to others which is due to Allah alone), as Allah said in [Qur'an – 2:165]: ''And of mankind are some who take (for worship) others besides Allah as rivals (to Allah); they love them as they love Allah.''

[Ash-Shirk Al-Asghar (minor polytheism)]

Shirk [Polytheism] and its categories
The minor polytheism is Riya' (showing off), as Allah says in [Qur'an – 18:110]: ''So whoever hopes for the meeting with his Lord, let him work righteousness and associate none as a partner in the worship of his Lord.''

[Ash-Shirk Al-Khafi (invisible polytheism)]

The invisible polytheism was explained by the Prophet (Sall Allahu Alayhi Wasalam): ''The invisible polytheism in this Ummah is more hidden than the track of a black ant on a black stone in a dark night.''

Its expiation according to the Prophet's saying is: ''O Allah! Verily I seek refuge with You against ascribing partners to You knowingly; and I beg Your forgiveness for the sin which I do not know.''

May Allah the Almighty protect us all from associating partners with Him.

Istikhaarah Prayer (صلاة الاستخارة):

Istikhaarah Prayer (صلاة الاستخارة)

Jaabir ibn ‘Abd-Allaah al-Salami (may Allaah be pleased with him) said:
“The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to teach his companions to make istikhaarah in all things, just as he used to teach them soorahs from the Qur’aan. 

The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

إِذَا هَمَّ أَحَدُكُمْ بِالأَمْرِ فَلْيَرْكَعْ رَكْعَتَيْنِ مِنْ غَيْرِ الْفَرِيضَةِ ثُمَّ لِيَقُلْ اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْتَخِيرُكَ بِعِلْمِكَ وَأَسْتَقْدِرُكَ بِقُدْرَتِكَ وَأَسْأَلُكَ مِنْ فَضْلِكَ ، فَإِنَّكَ تَقْدِرُ وَلا أَقْدِرُ وَتَعْلَمُ وَلا أَعْلَمُ وَأَنْتَ عَلامُ الْغُيُوبِ اللَّهُمَّ فَإِنْ كُنْتَ تَعْلَمُ هَذَا الأَمْرَ ثُمَّ تُسَمِّيهِ بِعَيْنِهِ خَيْرًا لِي فِي عَاجِلِ أَمْرِي وَآجِلِهِ قَالَ أَوْ فِي دِينِي وَمَعَاشِي وَعَاقِبَةِ أَمْرِي فَاقْدُرْهُ لِي وَيَسِّرْهُ لِي ثُمَّ بَارِكْ لِي فِيهِ اللَّهُمَّ وَإِنْ كُنْتَ تَعْلَمُ أَنَّهُ شَرٌّ لِي فِي دِينِي وَمَعَاشِي وَعَاقِبَةِ أَمْرِي أَوْ قَالَ فِي عَاجِلِ أَمْرِي وَآجِلِهِ  فَاصْرِفْنِي عَنْهُ [ واصرفه عني ] وَاقْدُرْ لِي الْخَيْرَ حَيْثُ كَانَ ثُمَّ رَضِّنِي بِهِ.

 Istikhaarah Prayer (صلاة الاستخارة):

‘If any one of you is concerned about a decision he has to make, then let him pray two rak’ahs of non-obligatory prayer, then say: 

Allaahumma inni astakheeruka bi ‘ilmika wa astaqdiruka bi qudratika wa as’aluka min fadlika, fa innaka taqdiru wa laa aqdir, wa ta’lamu wa laa a’lam, wa anta ‘allaam al-ghuyoob. Allaahumma fa in kunta ta’lamu haadha’l-amra (then the matter should be mentioned by name) khayran li fi ‘aajil amri wa aajilihi (or: fi deeni wa ma’aashi wa ‘aaqibati amri) faqdurhu li wa yassirhu li thumma baarik li fihi. Allaahumma wa in kunta ta’lamu annahu sharrun li fi deeni wa ma’aashi wa ‘aaqibati amri (or: fi ‘aajili amri wa aajilihi) fasrifni ‘anhu [wasrafhu ‘anni] waqdur li al-khayr haythu kaana thumma radini bihi 

(Meaning: O Allaah, I seek Your guidance [in making a choice] by virtue of Your knowledge, and I seek ability by virtue of Your power, and I ask You of Your great bounty. You have power, I have none. And You know, I know not. You are the Knower of hidden things. O Allaah, if in Your knowledge, this matter (then it should be mentioned by name) is good for me both in this world and in the Hereafter (or: in my religion, my livelihood and my affairs), then ordain it for me, make it easy for me, and bless it for me. And if in Your knowledge it is bad for me and for my religion, my livelihood and my affairs (or: for me both in this world and the next), then turn me away from it, [and turn it away from me], and ordain for me the good wherever it may be and make me pleased with it.”

(Reported by al-Bukhaari, 6841; similar reports are also recorded by al-Tirmidhi, al-Nisaa’i, Abu Dawood, Ibn Maajah and Ahmad).

Abû Bakr to ‘Umar on his Deathbed

When Abû Bakr Al-Siddîq was on his deathbed he called ‘Umar – Allah be pleased with them – and said:

Abû _Bakr _to _‘Umar _on _his _Deathbed

Fear Allah o ‘Umar, and know that Allah has deeds to be done for Him in the day which He will not accept if done at night, and He has deeds to be done for Him at night which He will not accept if done during the day. He will not accept extra (nâfilah) deeds unless you fulfill the obligatory deeds. The scales of those whose scales will be weighty on the Day of Resurrection will only be weighty because they followed the truth in this life and it was weighty to them. And scales in which the truth will be placed tomorrow truly deserve to be heavy.

Abû Bakr to ‘Umar on his Deathbed
And the scales of those whose scales will be light on the Day of Resurrection will only be light because they followed falsehood in this life and it was a light matter to them. And scales in which falsehood will be placed tomorrow truly deserve to be light.

 Allah the Exalted has mentioned the people of Paradise and mentioned them in the context of their best deeds, and overlooked their evil deeds, so when I remember them I say to myself: I fear that I will not be included with them. And Allah the Exalted has mentioned the people of Hell and mentioned them in the context of their worst deeds and rejected their best deeds, so when I remember them I say: I hope I won’t be amongst them. Allah’s worshippers should always be in a state of hope and fear, they shouldn’t wish flimsy wishes about Allah and neither should they despair of Allah’s mercy.

If you keep to this advice of mine, no one who is not with you now should be more beloved to you than death – and it is sure to come to you. But if you disregard this advice, no one who is not with you now should be more hated to you than death – and you cannot escape it.

Abû Nu’aym, Hilyah Al-Awliyâ` Vol.1 p18; and Ibn Al-Jawzî, Sifah Al-Safwah.

A beautiful Love Story...

Some people wish that someday they find love and live a story like those stories in movies. Let me tell you a beautiful story but it is not from a movie or I invented it no, it is a story truly happen a story lasted more than 1400 years and it will remain much longer.

A beautiful Love Story...
If I started to write about it I will never end it will need millions of words to describe it even million will not be enough. below is one situation and prove this love story  
Years after Khadijah (Radhi Allahu Anha) died, He came across a necklace that she once wore when He saw it, He remembered her and began to cry and mourn.
His love for her never died, so much so that His later wife A'isha became jealous of her. 

Once she (Radhi Allahu Anha) asked the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) if Khadijah (Radhi Allahu Anha) had been the only woman worthy of His love.

He (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) replied:
"She believed in me when no one else did. She accepted Islam when people rejected me, and she helped me, comforted me when there was no one else to lend me a helping hand."

Wallahi, their love story always blows me away,
Yaa Allah, grant every single Muslim and Muslimah a good and pious spouse, and grant us space in Jannah, and unite us with our Nabi (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) His family and his companions. 

(Radhi Allahu anhum), Aamiin.
