  1. 25 Duas From The Holy Quran

    :sl: 25 Duas from the Holy Quran (And when My servants ask thee concerning Me, I am indeed close (to them): I respond to the dua (prayer) of every suppliant when they calleth on Me - Quran 2:186) 1. Our Lord! Grant us good in this world and good in the life to come and keep us safe from the torment of the Fire (2:201) 2. Our Lord! Bestow on us endurance and make our foothold sure and give us help against those who reject faith. (2:250) 3. Our Lord! Take us not to task if we forget or fall into error. (2:286) 4. Our Lord! Lay not upon us such a burden as You did lay upon those before us. (2:286) 5. Our Lord! Impose not on us that which we have not the strength to bear, grant us forgiveness and have mercy on us. You are our Protector. Help us against those who deny the truth. (2:286) 6. Our Lord! Let not our hearts deviate from the truth after You have guided us, and bestow upon us mercy from Your grace. Verily You are the Giver of bounties without measure. (3:8) 7. Our Lord! Forgive us our sins and the lack of moderation in our doings, and make firm our steps and succour us against those who deny the truth. (3:147) 8. Our Lord! Whomsoever You shall commit to the Fire, truly You have brought [him] to disgrace, and never will wrongdoers find any helpers (3:192) 9. Our Lord! Behold we have heard a voice calling us unto faith: "Believe in your Lord" and we have believed. (3:193) 10. Our Lord! Forgive us our sins and efface our bad deeds and take our souls in the company of the righteous. (3:193) 11. Our Lord! And grant us that which you have promised to us by Your messengers and save us from shame on the Day of Judgement. Verily You never fail to fulfill Your promise. (3:194) 12. Our Lord! We have sinned against ourselves, and unless You grant us forgiveness and bestow Your mercy upon us, we shall most certainly be lost! (7:23) 13. Our Lord! Place us not among the people who have been guilty of evildoing. (7:47) 14. Our Lord! Lay open the truth between us and our people, for You are the best of all to lay open the truth. (7:89) 15. Our Lord! Pour out on us patience and constancy, and make us die as those who have surrendered themselves unto You. (7:126) 16. Our Lord! Make us not a trial for the evildoing folk, and save as by Your mercy from people who deny the truth (10:85-86) 17. Our Lord! You truly know all that we may hide [in our hearts] as well as all that we bring into the open, for nothing whatever, be it on earth or in heaven, remains hidden from Allah (14:38) 18. Our Lord! Bestow on us mercy from Your presence and dispose of our affairs for us in the right way. (18:10) 19. Our Lord! Grant that our spouses and our offspring be a comfort to our eyes, and give us the grace to lead those who are conscious of You. (25:74) 20. Our Lord! You embrace all things within Your Grace and Knowledge, forgive those who repent and follow Your path, and ward off from them the punishment of Hell. (40:7) 21. Our Lord! Make them enter the Garden of Eden which You have promised to them, and to the righteous from among their fathers, their wives and their offspring, for verily You are alone the Almighty and the truly Wise. (40:8) 22. Our Lord! Relieve us of the torment, for we do really believe. (44:12) 23. Our Lord! Forgive us our sins as well as those of our brethren who proceeded us in faith and let not our hearts entertain any unworthy thoughts or feelings against [any of] those who have believed. Our Lord! You are indeed full of kindness and Most Merciful (59:10) 24. Our Lord! In You we have placed our trust, and to You do we turn in repentance, for unto You is the end of all journeys. (60:4) 25. Our Lord! Perfect our light for us and forgive us our sins, for verily You have power over all things. (66:8) :sl:
  2. :sl: The Story of Luqman (peace be upon him) and the Melon Luqman (A.S.) had great love for the Almighty, that it created within him high moral character and exemplary habits. This was a clear sign of his nobility and nearness to Allah. The details of that is described in Surah (Chapter) Luqman in the Glorious Qur'an. Luqman (A.S.) used to be in the employ of a rich man. The nobility of Luqman (A.S.)'s character had a great effect on his master, so much so that the master considered him as a great friend and a beloved companion. Although he was the master, yet in fact the master became like a slave to his employee. It became the practice of the master that whenever he had something special to eat, he would first feed Luqman (A.S.) of it and after Luqman (A.S.) had filled himself, he would eat the leftovers. Luqman (A.S.) would consider the love of the master and his habit, so he would eat moderately and send what was left over to the master. One day, during the melon season, the master received a melon from somewhere. At that time Luqman (A.S.) was not present. The master sent one of his slaves to go and call him. When Luqman (A.S.) arrived, the master cut the melon into slices and slice by slice started giving thereof to Luqman (A.S.) to eat. As he ate the slices, the master inwardly became pleased at the effect his love was having upon Luqman (A.S.). Luqman (A.S.) ate the slices with great PLEASURE and all the time expressed THANKS for the favor shown to him by the master. After having eaten the slices, when just one slice remained, the master said: "Let me eat this slice and see how sweet is this melon." Saying this, he put the slice into his mouth. Immediately, such bitterness spread from the tip of his tongue down to his throat, that as a result of the extreme bitterness of the melon, he fell down unconscious and remained unconscious for a whole hour. When he regained consciousness, he questioned Luqman (A.S.): " O Beloved one, How did you manage to, so heartily eat those slices of melon ? Just one slice of the melon had such an effect on me, then how did you manage to eat so many slices ?" Luqman (A.S.) replied: "O Friend, from your hands I have received hundreds of gifts. The burden of thanks upon me is so great, that my back has gone crooked. Hence, I felt ashamed that the hand that had granted me so much favors, if one day some distastefulness or bitterness should come, how can I turn away from it ? O Friend, the pleasure of knowing that it comes from your hands has changed the bitterness of the melon to sweetness." LESSON: At every given moment there are numerous bounties and favors of Allah upon mankind. But if ever for a moment some such incident takes place which brings with it, a problem and outwardly causes some difficulty, man loses patience and fails to be grateful. On the other hand, there are those who are granted understanding, so that when sorrows and difficulties touches them, they remain happy, pleased and grateful to their Lord. At such times, they draw strength from their good understanding and realize that this world is like a hospital and we are like patients in it. There are times when the doctor gives the patient " sweet " medicine and at other times " bitter" medicine. However, in both these, there are beneficial results for the patient. Similarly, Allah is the "Al Hakeem", the All-Wise and at the same time is the " Haakim"- Ruler. He is also "Ar- Raheem", the Merciful One. Hence, whether it brings out comfort or discomfort, all these are for our benefit and interest. A lesson for ALL of us to be Grateful and Thankful under ALL circumstances and conditions to the Almighty Source: Ma'arif-e-Mathnawi (Vol. 1) :sl:

  6. :sl: Jannah And Hell-Which Road Is Yours?[using large font size is not allowed] Jannah is surrounded with hardship and tears. Hell is covered with lust and desires. Jannah is the difficult path upstairs. Hell is the slippery path downstairs. Jannah won't be spoon fed into your lap. Hell is made very attractive with the trap. Do the people think that they will be left to say, "We believe," without being put to the test?" [29:2] Are we muslims by heart or muslims 2nd best? Which path needs: SACRIFICE--- SELF-CONTROL------------ DISCIPLINCE---------- PERSEVERANCE Jannah Or Hell-Which Road Is Yours? Is our Dunya overtaking our wonderful foundation, the Deen? Seeing our Lord Uncover His Veil, Subhanallah what a scene! Love Islam, do we? Strive Islam, can we? Live Islam, will we? Is our submission to Allah, part time or full time? Each breath and heart beat is a blessing from Allah the Sublime! Love of Allah or hatred, where will we climb? Satan believes In Allah(swt) Where Is He Heading To? Jannah? Are we muslims by actions or muslims by just name? Muslim by name, lame and shame! Muslims by action, is what we aim! Sacrifice TEMPARORY SATISFACTION--4--ETERNAL SATISFACTION... Or Sacrifice ETERNAL SATISFACTION--4-- TEMPARORY SATISFACTION.. Jannah or Hell-Which Road Is Yours? The Prophet (SAW) once compared the two beautifully when he said "The wealth of this world (dunya) is like a drop of water on the head of a pin, compared to the vast oceans of the hereafter." Droplet of water or the "vast ocean? I know what I prefer, do YOU? Written by Aaqib! :sl:
  7. :sl: A Child's Mourning-A Mother's Secret! Where is 'pa pa'? When is he coming home? I miss 'da da'! Craving to speak on phone? Where is 'Greve'? Is there a park there? Can we ask Steve ? Or go to the fair? 'Ma ma' ma don't cry why cry? I try to make her better. 'Da da is coming',I try! I say, ‘til I found a letter. Under 'ma ma' pillow it hid, Addy to Stranger's hand,but fate! 'Ma ma' in tears,'who I kid?' 'You were going to find out late'! Tear so much water turn to blood. Childhood crashed down to an end. My 'da da' my 'da da' flood flood. How could I comprehend? Did he do bad? Why 'da da' take? Or make anyone sad? 'Ma ma' why o why act fake? So 'Greve' isn’t a park? Oh, it's Gr-a-ve? My friend 'pi pi' said it's for people who died,having left their mark! 'Ma ma' was my 'da da' a bomber? 'Ma ma' breaks down again. On the pillow weeping. In uncontrollable pain. Wishing she was sleeping. 'Your father's a good man'. Lā ilāha illā-llāh,'He died a hero'. Confused images twirl within,but smile I can 'No one told me',all but zero! 'Ma ma' cries,her eyes betraying no lie, Is he coming back? 'Why 'da da' die?' With his clothes and sack? Deeper darkness shadows her face. "Brothers and sister's high in number weak in deen" "The Ummah a disgrace" "Centuries ago low in number but Iman strong if only we had seen?" "O little one we love this cursed world too much, too busy with our own lives, no time for love or even touch that each one of us strives". I ponder deeply today. What I had learnt from Jummah Didn't Imam always say we are a united Ummah?? If this is really true then, why did no one help 'da da'? Why are we all 'talk' and not walk? Who else can make a difference if our beloved brothers and sisters wont?? Lets hang our heads in shame, why do we crave for fame? Ponder upon when Allah asks,'What did we do?', 'How did we live?' How will we answer? Where is our Deen-Dunya(life) balance? How will we escape? Make a difference NOW or NEVER! :sl:

There is no god but He - the Living, The Self-subsisting, Eternal. No slumber can seize Him Nor Sleep. His are all things In the heavens and on earth.

Nor shall they compass Aught of his knowledge Except as He willeth. His throne doth extend Over the heavens And on earth, and He feeleth No fatigue in guarding And preserving them, For He is the Most High. The Supreme (in glory)." [surah al-Baqarah 2: 255][using large font size is not allowed] Abu Umamah Al-Bahili (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: "The one who recites it after each of the obligatory prayers, then death will be the only thing preventing him from entering Paradise." [ibn Sunni, Ibn Hibban] Abu Dhar said; O Messenger of Allah, what is the greatest thing that has been revealed to you?’ He said, Ayat al-Kursi, 'Allah! La ilaha illa Huwa' [an-Nasa'i] Do you know the Ayatul Kursi?" Anas (radiAllahu anhu) replied "I know". The Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said, "It is equal to a quarter of the Qur'an [b]Rasool Allah peace be upon him said, "Whoever recites Aayatul Kursi after every Fard (Fard Salat). Only death is keeping him/her from entering Jannah. (As soon as he/she dies, will enter Jannah) (Nisa'i, Ibne Habban, Ibnelsani A'n Abi Amatah Albahili Radiallah Anhu) It's in another Hadis that Reciting Ayatul Kursi after one Fard (Fard Salat) will stay in Allah's protection until the next Salat. (Tibrani Fil Kabeer, A'n Alhasan Bin Ali Radiallah Anhu) Imam Bihaqi States that the one who recites Ayatul Kursi before falling asleep, Allah Tala gives protection to his/her home and his/her Family. (Marqat Sharah Mishkaat, Mulla Ali Qaderi, vol. 2 pp. 583) It's in another Hadis Jinns and Shaitans do not come close to the house in which Ayatul Kursi is recited. (Tirmizi Altargheeb Wal Tarheeb Lilmanzari vol.2 pp.631) Hadrat A'isha Radiallah Anha states that a person arrived in the court of Nabi kareem Sallal Laaho Alaihi Wasallam and complained that there is no Barkat (Blessings) in anything in his home. Rasool Allah peace be upon him said, "You do not recite Ayatul Kursi, whichever Food and Curry you will recite Ayatul Kursi on, Allah Tala will give Blessings on that Food and Curry.

  21. Weird Pm

    Asalaam Alaikum Waramatullahi Wabarakatuh, Alhumdulilah interesting thoughts... Yep yep we should.. Firstly I would never give my bank details etc over the net like that.. However if I was in such a position I wouldn't turn down such a chance to help someone right away.. When you do things for the SAKE OF Allah then be it scam or no scam, it doesn't affect you, why? Because your intentions are solely for the pleasure of Allah and to help someone out.. I know you need to be MEGA careful especially on the net, that's why I would never give out my bank details or contact info.. But if they gave me an address or something, inshallah I'd send some money to them.. Reason I'm so inclined to help out is because I found from an experience, it could be the difference between gettin a few shahadas? Just wanted to add the other side of the coin!! Obviously I would make a detailed judgement first regarding the matter because taking things forward! If they did push to have my contact info then I would realise RED ALERT stay away.. :sl: for reading.. :sl:

  23. *_go 4 Shahada--go 4 Jackpot_*

    :sl: *_Go 4 SHAHADA--Go 4 JACKPOT_* Asalaam Alaikum Waramatullahi Wabarakatuh My Dear Brothers And Sisters, "Aaqib brother, what's the most inspiring and heartfelt experience to come into your 19 years of living?" Well, sqeezing the experience into 1 sentence firstly and you get this: I informed and educated a Non-Muslim to say the Shahada subhanallah. I would *insert*the word 'guided' instead of 'informed and educated', but only Allah guides right? We can only inform and educate others about Islam through our words and character and then leave it up to them to-accept or reject the call? While this whole experience took place I was still on my crutches having injured my knee ligaments in a footie tournament. On a friday as usual I was going back to Milton Keynes via Newstreet Birmingham to see my loving family subhanallah..As I was on my way to the entrance of the station I thought to myself, I am going to inform that poor people about Islam who was hanging about outside the station trying to sell his mag. and asking for spare change. So I began to picture a sequence of events in my head..all I was thinking of was SHAHADA SHAHADA SHAHADA! So I made small stepping stones to help me lead up to that such as first clearing any misconceptions he has about Islam... Giving Dawah is best shown through your character right? So instead of giving him spare loose change which everyone can give, I thought to myself why not shine above the rest and give them a note? So I approached him with a *SMILE* and handed him a note alhumdulilah.That moment it felt as if he was the happinest person alive subhanallah. *PRICELESS*Then I explained to him that it was my duty being a muslim to really care for others.Wish for others, what I wish for myself. You remember that HADITH my friends? I was striving to sale across Islam to my best ability with warm words and a friendly approach, how often do we do that my friends-is Islam a part time submission or full time? Alhumdulilah my 1st intention was to clear up any misceptions he had about Islam.So I went on about how Islam is a religion of love and it is not what the media conveys it to be.He agreed with me and said poor people like him often come across as 'druggies' to other people when there not.I said I don't judge anyone by their looks. Who am I to judge? Allah(swt) is the best of judges..So within a few minutes me and Mat built a friendly relationship.I took things a step further and followed up. I had found over time that he became very dependent on me by sending me text messages saying he badly needed money to live in a flat etc.I got in 2 minds who wouldn't? One side of the coin was 'He only wants your money hence he's using you'.The other was 'please a poor person for the sake of Allah, money is only paper, your doing this PURELY FOR THE SAKE OF Allah'.I made Dua saying if helping this poor person is good for my DEEN AND DUNYA bring me closer to it and if it is bad for me take me away from it.So I listened to me heart, then found my mind and body followed it. I then by Allah's mercy a week or so later met Mat's friend.She was preganant and as I saw her selling items outside the station I decided to approach. So we started talking, she went on how she would have to sleep outside with a small blanket and was worried that her few months old baby would get harmed.My heart kept saying 'must help' because it's very tough as it is being a mother and taking care of a baby in the womb.I hold mothers very highly subhanallah especially since I'm extremely close to my own mother. So after I talked to this lady I limbed back to my accomadation on my crutches and brang her my blanket, pillow, some Islamic books and Quran.I was in pain but all affairs are good for the believer right? In good moments we thank Allah, in tough moments we thank Allah and show patience.. Alhumdulilah she felt at great ease when I'd returned..It was actually freezing at that time, what would be going through your mind my friends? Every little good deed helps right? ****1 MONTH LATER**** I decided to follow up, a follow up is vital isn't it? I found I had actually met up with his friend Damien.I thought hmmm would I have to do the whole Dawah process again? Why has Mat not turned up? What's going on? Lots of questions drowned my thoughts..Firstly I had brought Mat a gift from Tescos as a gesture of goodwill. So gave that to Damien instead.Damein said he had been reading this Quran in depth someone had given his friend(the lady).He was explaining to me with such good knowledge and comprehension his reading from my old Quran. I was like "WOW", especially when he said he'd read half of it in a few days..how many of us show that level of passion for our Islam, Iman & Ihsan? We talked over a coffee up in Newstreet station..he was like people must be wondering why your talking to me, there going to look down on you. I was like I couldn't care less what people think..then in my heart I recalled this is PURELY FOR THE SAKE OF Allah.. so why would people's view matter? I dropped my wisdom to him by saying 'our meeting wasn't a fluk my dear friend, Allah destined it to happen, Damein my good friend, Allah has chosen you for guidance, isn't the fact that day turns into night and night turns into day the sign of the creator?'.He agreed with me constantly.He believed in Allah(swt) and through my words I felt I had convinced him that Jesus was just a Prophet and Prophet Muhammad(saw) was the last messenger. Especially after I dropped a huge bombshell like 'Damein I really want to save you from the horrible hell fire and it's extreme totures, you deserve the best way of life right?' As the conversation got deeper I felt he was swaying towards Islam with each word I said so I went for GOLD.I got him to say the Shahada.I told him follow Islam at your own pace, and I was always there to support and help him...Allahu Akbar!! To Be Continued. . . . . WOW subhanallah what a journey I faced.How would YOU have handled it? Who is going to be more grateful for a slice of bread, a poor person or a richer person? A penny and a slice of bread mean the world to a poor person. To us it's nothing, sad isn't it? WE all have the POTENTIAL to get a SHAHADA, how many of us unlock it? Success will never fall into our laps, or will it? Next time YOU go past or into Newstreet station, will you throw in a cheap penny or give the poor people standing there a note? Try it and see what fruit it brings? A Bitter Lemon or a Sweet Strawberry? It's all down to YOU? All praises go to Allah, Allah alone. I'm just your average 19 year old brother, nothing special, nothing great..Only Allah know's my intentions. * La ilaha ilallah * Jazakallah Khayr for reading.. Brother Aaqib K. Ahmed :sl: Walaycum Asalaam Waramatullahi Wabarakatullah My Dear Brothers And Sisters
