  2. Don’t stress yourself Part 2

    This is an excerpt from one of Tariq Masood’s speeches. Its translated more or less meaning. (2) Prophet (saw) “Look at those who are beneath you and do not look at those who are above you” (Ibn Majah) I don’t have fancy car but I know an individual who cannot even afford a car. There are so many people on the streets. These are human beings who are homeless without families. I got a call from boy who is single. What should I say? He was jaded. No family is willing to offer their daughter (in marriage)! Is this life any good? I thought to myself you know those people on the streets. Who will give their daughter to them? I told him your father has kept you in a house, food and facilities. You have all of this. I pray you find someone. If by chance not able to find someone look at those people who don’t even have food and water. Thus, one should see someone who has less than them in matters of this world. With this you will not be victim of inferior complex. (3) One way to reduce anxiety is despite one’s best efforts to avoid and difficulty still comes by, one should reflect on their fate. Whatever is written in my fate it couldn’t have been avoided. (4) And world is temporary lodge. If there is stress its ephemeral. Happiness here also ephemeral. https://sheikhonderun.wordpress.com/2021/04/29/dont-stress-yourself-part-2/

  8. Wearing $ 30k Jewelry

    This is an excerpt from one of Sana Khan’s speeches former Bollywood actress. Its translated more or less meaning. Don’t they say when human is surrounded by everything impermissible then the permissible becomes challenging. This is going to be really tough. Obviously, I have travelled half the world. I have travelled so many times, same countries be it US, Europe, Arab, Asian countries. So I have been everywhere. I have seen everything. I have worn best of clothes. Name any designer I have worn their dress. Clothes would literally be $ 12-15k. I used to wear jewelry worth $30k. Anything of this world a human just thinks everything I have done in my profession. You know staying in five star hotels, staying in suits eating whatever you wish & you don’t spend anything of your own, all expenses paid. Designers would approach me pls wear my clothes. I have received every thing (one desires) in my life. But still you know it happens that I have everything and I am happy but that happiness diminishes. It was fleeting & wouldn’t stay. For example today if I had come to promote my movie that I wanted to do in the past at colleges and everywhere. Allah forgive me! When I think of it, I regret. What was I doing with my life? So when I would go and speak. I would get happy that wow so many people are here, they are listening to me & they are all my fans. But as soon as I would leave in the car you know what they say soda get flat. Once the fizzle is gone after that no one wants to even drink that soda. That was my condition. It does feel really good but why is this happiness not staying in my life? In 2019 it was worst, I was very active in social media doing every shoot possible which I truly regret. I don’t know how many times I have performed prayer of repentance. O Allah pls erase it! Pls erase it! Its my resolution not to do this ever again. At that point in time in 2019, what I looked like externally was not who I was and what I was internally I wasn’t able to show. That year I was so internally conflicted that whatever I am doing, I am gaining followers, all these likes, gaining popularity. I get called to events and getting lot of money. Off course, you know for one ribbon cutting I would get $10k I would just attend for 10-15 mins I would earn this money. And I was thinking I am receiving all of this yet I am not happy. I was definitely not happy. When I used to listen to lectures of other people, is it even possible that someone is getting all this money, fame & respect that they are an idiot to think they were not happy. Why are you not happy? What else do you want? Give it to me. Don’t we say this. We try to be cheeky. Why were you not happy? You have everything. What is there to be sad about? But this ’emptiness’ will only be experienced by someone who is connected to Allah. Now that I have come on this path I know why things were not making me happy? Allah had destined something else for me. That had to happen in 2020. If it had happened in 2018 perhaps I wouldn’t have been stable. In 2020, I felt really stable Allah made me firm that God willing nothing will change me. I keep praying for steadfastness. Give me guided life and death on guidance. Because until death there is no guarantee as one can be misled. That fear always exist to safe guard one’s faith. That’s why whenever I pray ‘ O Turner of hearts, keep my heart steadfast on your religion’ (Tirmidhi). This fear exists in my heart. Today I have faith tomorrow what if I lose it? I can’t even keep a lipstick or earing properly how will I safeguard my faith. I don’t have the ability to protect this but I want this. I am willing to barter anything of this world but this thing (faith) for my security pls keep this secure. I think we should all strive to pray for this. Because things are given based on asking and bestower is Allah. https://sheikhonderun.wordpress.com/2021/11/02/wearing-30k-jewelry/

  10. Don’t stress yourself Part 4

    This is an excerpt from one of Tariq Masood’s speeches. Its translated more or less meaning. We stress over too many things at once, look this is happening wrong in society, why is that group coming, that group is increasing & other group is decreasing. (For example) I have principle that whenever I speak on something. Whenever there is controversial topic I get many messages. You said this why did you say this but I have addressed that issue there itself. So I don’t respond I ask them to listen to speech completely. So they reply they have listened to complete speech. So I respond listen to speech again. Its like you need to constantly reply the same answer to same question repeatedly. Public might have time to waste but your abilities/talents are being wasted. I am not going to waste time answering the same question. Why should anyone create this type of stress for themselves? You know what is stress. I have exhausted myself in explaining something and yet still people are not able to understand me. Oh what am I to do? This is futile stress. I would say “Allah I have tried my best in explaining this, to make people understand is upon you”. People didn’t accept Prophet (saw) message. Yet how many times has Allah consoled Prophet? Allah is saying to Prophet that you are inviting people and they are not accepting your invitation, don’t stress. Why? If Prophet were to constantly stress, then who will do the work (calling people to Allah). There are several verses in Quran which are only there for consolation. “Then perhaps you would kill yourself through grief over them, [O Muḥammad], if they do not believe in this message, [and] out of sorrow.” (18:6) Because Prophet (saw) would be astonished that I have shown miracles, these are idols that cannot listen or see or say anything tried to explain in every way and they have witnessed in my 40 years that I never lied, known to be someone who is trust worthy and they were waiting for Prophet to arrive. All of this happened yet they are not willing to accept me. In that scenario anyone will start worrying? So what is Quran saying? That to keep on taking lot of stress? No! No! Don’t take on stress. “You are not over them a controller.” (88:22) You cannot force them. You are not going to be questioned (for their actions). “Convey everything revealed to you from your Lord.” (5:67) Your job is just to convey. Imagine his own uncle didn’t accept. Okay others were enemies but Abu Talib was someone who raised you. Person will be patient that your enemies are not accepting you but this is your own uncle. He protected you, in 3 years of boycott/ banishment of Prophet (saw) & Banu Hashim without food so they abandon Islam. Abu Talib accompanied Prophet (saw) in that difficult time even though didn’t accept Islam but he joined his nephew, Prophet (saw). Such a nice uncle! Can you imagine Prophet (saw) heart? At time of death, Prophet (saw) asked him to testify so he may intercede for him. Can you imagine Prophet (saw) heart? Abu Talib considered it. Leaders of Quraysh looked at Abu Talib and didn’t want him to accept Islam. Imagine worry of Prophet (saw) that today my uncle who protected & loved me will enter hell. Abu Talib said “if I didn’t fear people would say that all my life I didn’t accept Islam but out of fear of death I ended up accepting Islam and abandoned my forefather’s religion. Today I would have cooled your eyes O Muhammad (saw).” Abu Talib made it as something to do with his honor. That if I die leaders of Quraysh will say “he was not committed to his word.” This is despite Abu Talib acknowledging earlier that religion that my nephew has brought is superior to all other religions. That if I didn’t fear what people would say I would cool eyes of Prophet (saw) (by accepting Islam). Can you imagine Prophet (saw) heart? The one who has certainty in (existence of) hellfire & my uncle will be entering it. How much did Prophet (saw) suffered at the moment when Abu Talib passed away without accepting faith? Prophet (saw) was intensely sad. What did Allah do? Provide consolation that don’t worry. Why am I narrating this incident to you? That in such conditions of immense grief and sorrow Allah asked not to ruminate in worry. So what about our small conditions that individual has flourishing business but mine didn’t pan out as expected, that individual has better career than me, that individual has better car than me what’s the benefit of stressing over these? Our stresses are what these days? I was supposed to get married to this individual and it broke off now I am getting married somewhere else. Real grief is what occurred to Prophet (saw). Can you imagine how Prophet (saw) must have managed himself? He is man of honor, compassion & love. But Allah commanded him not to stress (over what happened with his uncle). Why? It boils down to principle that I had stated earlier “what is not in your control don’t stress over it!” “Indeed, [O Muḥammad], you do not guide whom you like, but Allah guides whom He wills. And He is most knowing of the [rightly] guided.” (28:56) If Prophet (saw) would have stopped and just be constantly worrying who then would have propagated Islam and furthered its cause? There are lot of wrong/unjust things happen in this world, bring all sorts of evidence/arguments people still don’t accept, family problems. If one is to constantly ruminate over them then one is going to fall into depression. That’s why remember two things (1) Have adequate sleep (2) Don’t stress, I am not saying one can eliminate stress completely 100% that’s impossible but there is lot of stress that we create for ourselves. https://sheikhonderun.wordpress.com/2021/10/01/dont-stress-yourself-part-4/
  11. No one is Useless

    This is an excerpt from one of Ibrahim Dewla’s speeches. Its translated more or less meaning. Abdullah bin Masood is famous companion. He is big jurist with great knowledge. He was placed in Kufa to teach and call people to Allah. Once he was passing by there was a singer who was singing (party where alcohol was served). When his ears heard him singing he put cloth over his head, due to it being impermissible & evil thing. “and when they pass near ill speech, they pass by with dignity” (25:72) He passed through. He said “its such beautiful voice if only it was used to read & teach Quran.” This is to indicate how to bring people’s abilities to the benefit of this faith. “Such a beautiful voice!” He didn’t say “this individual is useless, trapped in futility.” Why? Because this would have been an indication of pride/arrogance. To consider someone insignificant is not part of calling people towards Allah. Our call is that abilities and talents that people possess they are applied in service to Allah. That is why everyone should reflect that whatever abilities/talents I possess they are a trust from Allah. Allah has given me these abilities to think, to understand, to act, to spend, to be of service and to worship. All of these abilities/talents where should these be applied? This is what Abdullah bin Masood hinted towards. His name was Jazan “such a beautiful voice”. He would have been able to teach Quran to others in beautiful manner. Prophet (saw) said, “The best among you (Muslims) are those who learn the Qur’an and teach it.” (Bukhari) Someone relayed to Jazan that companion of Prophet passed by & mentioned “such beautiful voice if only it was used to read and teach Quran.” Jazan left singing. He became student of Abdullah bin Masood and took benefit from his knowledge. (Jazan said) “I want to learn what you have invited me towards.” What I am trying to convey is this community’s abilities and talents are vast. Everyone possesses abilities and talents, as in no one is useless. Allah has not created something useless. Allah has not created anyone in vain. Allah has placed something special in every individual. Each fruit has it own taste and flavor. Everyone has something to offer. No one is bereft of virtues. Prophet (saw) said “People are like mines of silver and gold.” (Muslim) https://sheikhonderun.wordpress.com/2021/09/18/no-one-is-useless-ibrahim-dewla/
  12. Respect your children

    This is an excerpt from one of Tariq Jameel’s speeches. Its translated more or less meaning. I ask parents to not to place their children in trial, don’t place such hardship on them that they become rebellious, don’t restrict them on their permissible wants, don’t humiliate, taunt them, disagree with them, hit them, constantly criticize them. These are what make children rebellious. Prophet (saw) said “Give due respect and regard to your children.” (Abu Daud) Lot of parents consider their children as property & and treat them harshly. In consequence there is rebellion on their part. How did my Prophet (saw) give respect? When Fatima would visit and she would come at the door. Our Prophet (saw) would stand out of respect. We usually stand up for our elders. And we should its good etiquette. But what is my Prophet (saw) doing? He (saw) is standing up for his daughter. Are there any parents out there who stand up for their children? Do we give this level of protocol? And he (saw) wouldn’t just stand there he would rush towards Fatima. He would then hold her hand and kiss it. After which he (saw) wouldn’t let go, he would keep holding her hand and have her seated. Only after he (saw) would take a seat. This is ‘respect’ that Prophet (saw) would have for his children. And Fatima would do the same for Prophet (saw). When Prophet (saw) would visit Fatima she is sitting, laying down, she would rush to Prophet (saw) hold his hand, kiss it, never let go of his hand, have her father seated and then sit down. This is due to Prophet (saw) teaching her on how to give respect. If you give this level of respect to your children, then it will come back to you. `A’isha, the Umm al-Mu’minin, said, “I did not see anyone who more resembled the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, in manner of speaking than Fatima. When she came to him, he stood up for her, made her welcome, kissed her and had her sit in his place. When the Prophet came to her, she stood up for him, took his hand, made him welcome, kissed him, and made him sit in her place. She came to him during his final illness and he greeted her and kissed her.” (Al Adab Al-Mufrad) This is something that you probably have never heard of. You must have heard Prophet (saw) miracle that moon was split. We usually speak about Prophet (saw) with regards to miracles. Respect and honor exist for Prophet (saw) but the way/guidance in which to live and what’s relevant to one’s life will come based on these sorts of incidents. This is so that your homes flourish. Remember this! Your homes are not going to flourish being tied to physical appearances, educational pedigree, money, gold or silver. I swear on Allah its only character. https://sheikhonderun.wordpress.com/2021/08/28/respect-your-children/
  13. Marrying Outside & Prophet

    This is an excerpt from one of Tariq Jameel’s speeches. Its translated more or less meaning. Prophet (saw) married within his clan & outside. How many of our daughters remain unmarried? Only few days ago I got a call from girl ‘my father says you have to marry within the clan & not outside’. She says ‘I am getting old, the ones within my clan are not practicing’. Due to this, parents end up destroying daughters’ lives. My Prophet (saw) married within Quraysh: Aisha Khadijah Sawda Hafsa Umm Habiba Within Quraysh, he (saw) married within rival family Banu Ummaya: Umm Habiba (Abu Sufyan’s daughter). He (saw) married outside his clan (Quraysh): Juwayriyya from Banu Mustaliq tribe Maymuna from Hilal tribe He (saw) married outside Arabs: Safiyya from Jewish tribe Banu Qurayza. He (saw) married within his clan, outside his clan and outside his race. He (saw) own daughters Ruqayyah and Umm Kulthum got them married to rival family Banu Ummaya. There was rivalry between Banu Ummaya and Banu Hashim. First daughter Zainab was married to Abu al As from Banu Ummaya. Ruqayyah and Umm Kulthum to Uthman from Banu Ummaya. Only one daughter did he (saw) marry within family that was Fatima to Ali. Within family 1 daughter and outside 3 daughters within clan but rivals. Why did Prophet (saw) do all of this? He (saw) wanted to leave an example for us. https://sheikhonderun.wordpress.com/2021/08/18/marrying-outside-prophet/
  14. I'm a revert from Nigeria

    Allah make things easy for you.
  15. Allah’s giving & wisdom

    To despair from Allah is disbelief. A disbeliever doesn’t have any hope from Allah. Rather his hopes are tied to his possessions, position, business, and wealth. Our hopes should be tied to Allah. Whoever despairs from Allah has nothing else they can rely on. Hence, no one should despair. Allah utilizes both wisdom and power in his doing. Through his power Allah has created heavens and earth. In fostering human being, Allah utilizes both wisdom and power. Wisdom is a secret that is beyond grasp of human being. This is why we become frightened ‘why did this happen?’ Due to which Allah sends messengers so they can explain both Allah’s wisdom & Allah’s power. Allah does through his power yet wisdom precedes it. Once Musa (as) was going somewhere there was poor man stuck in mud. He requested Musa “Allah’s Prophet see I have no clothes, no food, trying to hide myself in mud so body is not revealed, have mercy on me, pray for my condition!” This is common among people even today. Musa (as) then prayed for him and went his way. There came a time Musa (as) came back & saw crowd of people. He asked, “what happened?” Reply came that a man got drunk then ended up killing someone. In consequence he is now being sentenced to death. Musa (as) saw this was the same man that was stuck in mud. Allah wanted to show Musa (as) there was wisdom why that man was in that condition. When opulence came, money came, he went out of control. His being poor was due to wisdom; not because Allah doesn’t have power to make him wealthy rather Allah can make this man wealthy. This was written by Sheikh Saadi in Mauritan. After narrating story of Musa (as) he quoted “And if Allah had extended [excessively] provision for His servants, they would have committed tyranny throughout the earth.” (42:27 Quran) This is why people have conditions, someone is poor, someone is sick etc. There are different wisdom behind it sometimes to nurture/raise stature of human being, sometimes for his wellness. People are unaware & complain. Rather we should have faith in Allah’s wisdom. https://sheikhonderun.wordpress.com/2021/08/16/allahs-giving-wisdom-ibrahim-dewla/
  16. The Dates for the Fasts of Ashura 2021 The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said regarding the day of Ashura: "It is a great day when Allah saved Musa (As) & his people & drowned Pharaoh & his people" [Muslim] "Fasting on it expiates the previous year of sins." [Muslim] The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) also says, "The best fasting after Ramadan is the month of Allah Muharram, and the best prayer after the obligatory prayer is prayer at night." [Muslim 1163] It is recommended to fast either the 9th & 10th or 10th & 11th or even on all 3 days. This is in order to differ from the Jews who only fasted on the day of Ashura & because the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) intended to fast the 9th & 10th of Muharram. The following are the dates for the Fasts of Ashura 2021 in the UK (Please check with your local Masjids as to the dates in your local area & country): 9th Muharram - Wednesday 18th August 10th Muharram - Thursday 19th August 11th Muharram - Friday 20th August We should not miss out on such valuable opportunities to gain immense rewards and forgiveness of our sins because on the day of Judgement we will beg one another for a single good deed, but none of us will give any away, not even our own Mothers. This is because every single one of us will be in dire need on that day. So we must grab every opportunity we possibly can whilst we are alive to increase in our good deeds and to gain forgiveness of our sins as we know not if we will be alive tomorrow. May Allah enable us to take every opportunity we can to do good and to gain forgiveness of our sins. Ameen
