  1. Please Help Me Remove Kaala Jaadu

    Asalaamu Alaikum, You need to find a good reliable Raqi (One who uses Qur'an and Sunnah to ward of evil from Jinn). Are you able to locate one?
  2. 20 Sunnah’s to do on Eid 1. To awaken earlier than usual 2. To brush the teeth with Miswaak 3. To have a bath (Ghusl) 4. To be dressed in one's best clothes (Doesn’t necessarily have to be new) 5. To be dressed modestly in an Islamic manner. Note: Care should be taken that we do not incur debts or transgress the limits of modesty regarding the clothes we purchase and wear on Eid day as is seen in many Muslim communities of today. Many of our brothers are seen with unsuitable haircuts and inappropriate clothing and many of sisters are seen dressed provocatively attracting unwanted attention and the gaze of strange men upon them. What would happen if we were to die in such a state? Therefore we should adopt modesty in every aspect of our lives particularly the way in which we dress. 6. To use Attar (Perfume) 7. To perform the Eid prayer at the Eidgah (An open ground) 8. To avoid eating before Eid-ul-Adha prayer and to eat an odd number of dates or anything sweet before Eid ul Fitr prayer. 9. To go to the place of Eid prayer early 10. To walk to the place of Eid prayer (If it is within walking distance because every step is reward) 11. To read the “Takbeerat” on the way to Eid-ul-Adha prayer loudly and on the way to Eid-ul-Fitr prayer silently: “Allaahu Akbar Allaahu Akbar Laa ilaaha illallaahu Wallaahu Akbar walillaahil hamd” (Allah is the greatest; Allah is the greatest; there is no god but Allah; Allah is the greatest; Allah is the greatest; and to Allah belongs all praise.). 12. To use different routes to and from the place of Eid prayer 13. To frequently recite the takbeer's throughout (Loudly for Eid Ul Adha and softly for Eid ul Fitr) 14. To pray the Eid-Ul-Fitr prayer later and the Eid-ul-Adha earlier. 15. To pray the two rak’ahs Waajib Salaatul Eidain without any Adhaan (call to prayer) or Iqaamah 16. It is Mukruh (disliked) to pray Nafil (voluntary) prayers before or after the Eid prayer but Sunnah to pray two rak’ahs Nafil prayer upon reaching home. 17. To give the Sadaqatul fitr (Compulsory charity) before praying the Eid prayer. 18. The khutba (Arabic sermon) of both Eids are Sunnah but to listen to them is Wajib (Compulsory). It is totally prohibited (Haraam) to walk around, talk or even read Salaah whilst the khutba is in progress. 19. To shake hands and hug one another on happy occasions like Eid is Mubaah (permissible). The general principle of a Mubaah act is not to regard the act as compulsory so one should not regard the meeting on the day of Eid as compulsory and an inseparable part of the occasion. 20. To greet one another with the following greeting: Jabyr ibn Nufayr (Ra) said: 'When the companions of Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) met on the day of Eid, they would say to each other: 'Taqabal-Allahu minna wa mink (May Allah accept from us and you)." [Al Mahamiliyyat; hasan isnad; see Fath ul Bari 2:446]
  3. 20 Sunnah's To Do On Eid

    NIGHT BEFORE EID IMPORTANCE
  4. Do we have "Double Intentions" this Ramadan? As we fast approach the end of Ramadan we should reflect upon what we have achieved this Ramadan. Whatever good we have acquired then we must continue to implement it throughout the year and not just in Ramadan. Unfortunately many of us have "double intentions" in our hearts. What i mean by double intentions is that many of us have the intention in our hearts just to stop bad habits and evil for the duration of Ramadan, but as soon as Ramadan is over then we intend to go back to our bad habits & evil ways. Many of us intend to go back to our evil ways after Ramadan Many of us before Ramadan take drugs, or drink, go clubbing, fornicate or commit adultery. Others may put on their hijaab and wear modest clothing just for Ramadan and then take off their hijaab and continue wearing tight clothes when Ramadan finishes. Or many of us pray our Salaah in Ramadan but as soon as it is over we abandon our Salaah and go back to our old ways neglecting the very purpose of our life and living for this world as if they are going to remain in it forever. Allah knows our intentions We must realise that Allah KNOWS us better than we know ourselves and he knows EXACTLY what we are thinking and what our intentions are deep in our hearts. So we must NOT think that we can gain mercy and forgiveness for all of our past and present sins and have all of our fasts and good deeds accepted when we have these "double intentions"in our hearts that we intend to go back to our old ways again straight after Ramadan. So those of us who have such intentions should know that Allah knows exactly what is in our hearts and what we are intending. We may be able to hide it from others but we cannot hide anything from Allah. How can we think our fasts & good deeds throughout Ramadan will be accepted by having such intentions in our hearts? Those of us who have such intentions are just wasting their time and effort because we cannot expect acceptance of good deeds when we "intend" in our hearts to go back the our evil ways. By having such intentions we are in effect throwing away our fasts and good deeds and instead of gaining anything from Ramadan we will be more worse off than before. Surely this will be a source of HUGE regret in the Hereafter. What use is giving up food & drink if we have "Double intentions"? We should think to ourselves what use is our giving up food and refraining from all evil just for this one month when we intend go back to the evil we did after Ramadan is over? Ramadan is an amazing opportunity for us to better ourselves and get rid of bad habits and evil so that we can get closer to Allah and become better Muslims. This training will prepare us for the rest of the year. Ramadan is a perfect opportunity for us to gain Allah's mercy and his forgiveness for ALL of our sins past and present. A time when we can strengthen our imaan (faith) and get closer to Allah. A time when we can change our lives FOREVER! Where we can realise the purpose of our life and start making the necessery changes so that we can make the best of our time in this world to prepare for our final destination - THE HEREAFTER! A time where we can top up our good deed balances and empty our sin accounts. How unfortunate is the peson who gains NOTHING in his good deed account but only increases his bad deed account. But how can we expect to gain anything from Ramadan when we have "double intentions" in our hearts? How do we expect to gain Allah's mercy and his forgiveness where our intentions are to go back to our old ways as soon as Ramadan ends? Some only gain hunger from fasting and sleeplesness from praying all night The Prophet (Salallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: ”Perhaps a fasting person will gain nothing from his fast except hunger, and perhaps the one who stands to pray at night will gain nothing from his standing except sleeplessness.” (Ibn Majah) How unfortunate is such a person who fasted the whole month and made so much effort praying in the nights when all along he had other intentions in his heart and has wasted all of his good deeds and gains nothing from them except hunger, thirst and tiredness. Its not too late to change our intentions It is not too late to redeem ourselves. We CAN still change our intentions if we want our fasts and good deeds to be accepted. We can still change our intentions if we want Allah's mercy and forgiveness for ALL of our sins. We can still change our intentions if we want to get closer to Allah. And we can still change our intentions if we want to be successful in this world and the next. Therefore we must abadndon these double intentions. We must NEVER intend to go back to our evil ways and bad habits that we had before Ramadan. We must continue to implement and build upon the good we acquired throughout Ramadan and continue to try to become better Muslims. We must make effort on our imaan so that we may get closer to Allah and only then will we realise why we are here and the purpose of our life so that we may make the necessery changes to ourselves so that we may fulfill that purpose to the best of our ability. Our daily lives are FULL of distractions so we must keep reminding ourselves that we are not in this world for our own pleasures. That we are not here to live for this world but that we are here to prepare for the hereafter which is our eternal abode. We are just travellers here on a journey to the hereafter which is our ultimate and final destination. This Ramadan may be our last It is a bit of a cliche nowadays when people say "this Ramadan may be our last" but for some of us it really WILL be our last and that is a reality and not just a cliche. How many of us know or have heard of people who have died recently? How many times have we been to a grave yard and have seen amongst the dead, Muslims of ALL ages. How many of those who died knew at the time of their death that they were going to die? Many of us are living a life of deception as we think we will live until old age. That is not the case. Many of us will go a long time before that. We must not deceve ourselves into thinking that we have a long time left in this world. This life is very short and death for many of us will come sooner rather than later. We all have 50% chance of dying at ANY moment and 50% is a huge chance of dying yet we live everyday like we will live forever in this world but we are asleep and so heedless. We must now awaken for time will not wait for any of us! When the deceased are buried at the cemetery, the grave next to it is dug straight away ready for the next burial. It may you or me that could be buried next. This could be our last chance Therefore let us not miss this opportunity to make necessery changes to ourselves and the way we live our lives. We must never decieve ourselves into thinking that we always have next Ramadan to change or that we will change after this or that event. Or after we are married or at old age etc. This is pure deception of shaythan. We must live everyday like it is our last because it very well could be. Therefore the time to change is NOW. We must try and maintain the good we acquired throughout Ramadan and build upon it throughout the year. We must control our tongues and abandon false speech like lying, backbiting, slandering, gossiping, swearing etc otherwise: The Prophet, (SalAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “Whoever does not abandon lying and evil actions, Allah is not in need of him abandoning his food and his drink” (Al Bukhari) How can we possibly go back to our old bad habits and evil ways again? We must NEVER go back to our old ways ever again. We must leave the past behind us now and move forward. Yesterday is gone and will never come back. But what matters is NOW for we still have time to repent and change our ways until our soul reaches our throat and by then it will be too late. The sisters must continue to wear their hijaab properly and dress in a modest manner. Those of us who use intoxicants must abandon such evil for we are raised the way we died. so the one who dies intoxicated we will be raised that way and Allah will not even look at the one who died in such a wretched manner. Surely for him there is eternal doom. So is a short buzz really worth risking eternal doom? You decide.. Those of us who go clubbing or other places of evil must abandon going near such places. Those are the places of shaythan. What if the angel of death were to take our soul whilst we were in such places? May Allah have mercy on us. Most of all we MUST NEVER abandon our Salaah. It is the very purpose of our lives and the first question on the day of judgement will be about our Salaah. If we fail to answer those questions then we will fail in the hereafter. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: "The first thing which will be judged among a man's deeds on the Day of Resurrection is the Prayer. If this is in good order, then he will succeed and prosper, but if it is defective, then he will fail and lose." [Tirmidhi] Those of us who abandon the Salaah have abandoned our belief. Some scholars have said he who abandons it is no longer Muslim. This is said based on a hadith such as this one: "The covenant between us and them is prayer, so if anyone abandons it, he has become a disbeliever." [Ahmad] We must NOT let the Qur'an gather dust for another year but we jmust maintain a good relationship with the Qur'an for it will be our intercessor on the day of judgement: The Prophet (Sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “Read the Qur’an, for it will come as an intercessor for its reciters on the Day of Resurrection.” [sahih Muslim] Therefore we should continue reciting the Qur'an throughout the year and aim to complete it at least once a month if not more. If not then at least a page a day. We should try to recite it with its meanings so that we may understand what Allah is telling us and what he wants from us. If we want to know Allah then we should try to understand his words. We should continue to sincerely repent for Allah loves those who repent. We should continue asking of Allah and begging him for mercy and forgiveness. We should thank him each day for he gives more to those who are thankful. We should remember him and glorify and praise him. We should continue to guard and protect our eyes, ears, tongue and privates away from sin and harm. We should continue to be the best towards our families, relatives and towards ALL Muslims and non Muslims. We should maintain the ties of kinship. Let us continue with the good we have acquired as well as continuing to make the necessery changes to ourselves so that we may continue in bettering and improving ourselves as Muslims. Let us NEVR go back to our old habits or the evil we did before Ramadan because by leaving our Salaah and going back to our bad habits and evil ways we would have wasted our WHOLE Ramadan and it will be of no avail. How do we know whether our good deeds in Ramadan were accepted or not? Eid day and beyond will be the biggest test for many of us. It maybe that our supposed "friends" call us up to try and influence us to go back to our evil ways and bad habits. Those are NOT our real friends! We must keep away from such people for such company is POISON! We must be strong and fear Allah. We must distance ourselves from such people and NOT be ashamed to tell them that we fear Allah and our desire is to get closer to him so thereafore we will not be indulging in such activities. If we want to know whether or not our good deeds in Ramadan is accepted or not then the best way to know is if we continue praying our Salaah on time and we continue implementing and building upon the good we acquired throughout Ramadan. We will know if our good deeds were accepted if we are not the same as we are before Ramadan but that we have changed our ways for the better and we are obeying the commands of Allah and refraining from the bad habits and evil we left before Ramadan. Finally.. We must fear Allah and think what if we were to die in a state of committing sins? Surely we would die the death of a wretched dog! We do not want to die in such a manner. Do we not want the best pleasure imaginable which is to see the face of our creator in Jannah? The Prophet (Sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “When the inhabitants of Paradise enter Paradise, Allah will say to them, ‘Do you want Me to give you anything more?’ They will reply, ‘Have You not made our faces bright? Have You not brought us into Paradise and moved us from Hell?’ The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) then said: Allah will then remove the Veil and they will feel that they have not been awarded anything dearer to them than looking at their Lord.” [sahih Muslim] Subhanallah there is NOTHING more pleasurable than looking at face and appearance of the one who created us! This is our opportunity to change and gain such an amazing opportunity! But our time is short and any moment can be our last! May Allah enable us to continue with the good we acquired throughout Ramadan and save us from going back to our bad habits and evil ways. May he prevent us from doing anything which angers or displeases him. May Allah make us of the righteous and accept our fasts, good deeds and efforts throughout Ramadan and help us to become better Muslims to live for the hereafter. Ameen

  6. 7 Good Deeds To Continue After Ramadan

    How To End The Most Powerful Month
  7. 7 Good Deeds To Continue After Ramadan

    How to end Ramadan? Imagine if there was no Ramadan? We would be in permanent loss. We would have gone off the right track a long time ago with little hope. Allah in his mercy blesses us with Ramadan each and every year so we can get back on the right track again. So we can remember him and be more aware of him. So Many of us will be excited to partake in the festivities of the night before Eid and on Eid day. But surely the last few precious hours/minutes of this blessed month and the night before Eid day should be spent in thanking Allah for enabling us to experience this blessed month and asking Allah to forgive us for any short comings and deficiencies in our fasts during this blessed month. Most of all we must continue with the positive changes we made during this blessed month. So if we prayed all of our prayers then we must carry on as the prayer i our greatest obligation and the minimum we must do as Muslims. If we (the men) attended the Masjids more during this month then we must carry on attending the Masjid after Ramadan. This will continue to give us a sense of community and brotherhood that we felt during this blessed month. If the sister started wearing hijaab and jilbaab and stopped wearing tight clothes and putting on excessive make up and perfume, then surely she must continue doing so for Allah loves it and what is better than what Allah loves? If we lost our focus throughout the year to the worldly life and materialism then we must re-align our focus to that of pleasing Allah and yearning for the Hereafter. If we neglected our hearts and allowed it to be continuously corrupted and blackened then we must cleanse it with the remembrance of Allah and refrain from the major sins and do good deeds. If we neglected our Deen and did not obey Allah then we must make a firm commitment from this moment that we will try our best to obey Allah and make our focus to do everything in our lives that will please him and refrain from anything that may anger and displease him. What is the point of Ramadan if we leave the good we acquired and went back to your old ways? Ramadan is not just for one month but it is for life. The way to know our Ramadan was accepted is to see whether we continue the positive changes after Ramadan. So let us spend the last few hours of Ramadan and before we go to sleep tonight thanking Allah and asking of him to forgive us for any short comings and deficiencies in our fasting and to forgive us for all of our past and present sins. Therefore let us internalise now that we will make permanent and necessary changes to our lives from this moment on wards and focus on the Hereafter and to spend each day of our lives doing everything we can to please Allah and keep away from anything that may anger or displease him. Most of all that we will never go back to how we were before Ramadan!
  8. 5 Things To Do On Laylatul Qadr

    Planning To Commit Sins On Eid?
  9. 5 Things To Do On Laylatul Qadr

    What Next After Ramadan?
  10. Worship Plan to Maximise Laylatul Qadr (Night Of Power) Almighty Allah says in the Quran: {Laylat al-Qadr is better than a thousand months. The angels and the Spirit descend therein, by the permission of their Lord, with every decree. (This night is) peace, until the rising of the dawn.} (Al-Qadr 97: 3-5) This blessed night can be found in any of the last 10 nights of Ramadan which are the most blessed nights of the year & therefore we should increase our Worship & Devotion in them: Aisha (Ra) reported: With the start of the last ten days of Ramadan, the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) used to tighten his waist belt (i.e. work harder) and used to pray the whole night, & used to keep his family awake for the prayers. (Bukhari) Imam Ibrahim Al-Nakha`i (Ra) says: "Good works performed on this night are better than those performed consistently for a thousand months." Abu Hurayrah (Ra) relates that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: "Whoever spends Laylat al-Qadr in prayer, believing in Allah and seeking His reward, will be forgiven all of his past sins." (Al-Bukhari & Muslim) Subhanallah! What immense rewards are to be gained during these blessed 10 nights. How can we afford to miss out on them? Who is to say that we will be alive next Ramadan? So we must make the best of these 10 nights. If we cannot manage all of the 10 nights then at least as many as we can manage particularly the last 10 odd numbered nights: 21st, 25th, 27th and 29th. There is a saying: A person who fails to plan, plans to fail. So I have created a Worship plan that we can use to maximise these blessed 10 nights of Ramadan. Before we get into the plan, there are a few points to consider: 10 points to consider in the Worship Plan: 1 - Remain in I'tikaf: The best way of catching the blessed night of Power is to remain in I'tikaf which both men and women can do. If it is not possible for one to remain in I'tikaf for the whole of the 10 days and nights then one should try to remain in I'tikaf as many days and nights as is possible. It is also possible to make intention of Nawafil I'tikaf each and every time one enters the Masjid in order to gain rewards for the time spent in the Masjid. 2 - Worship all the 10 nights: Try to worship the whole of the 10 nights or at least as one can manage as that is the best way to catch the unimaginable and incomprehensible rewards of Laylatul Qadr. Each and every good deed from Maghrib until Fajr on Laylatul Qadr is rewarded a minimum of over 83 years of worship rewards. Subhanallah that is longer than most of us will live! 3 - Best Dua of the last 10 nights: Recite as much of the Dua for Lailatul Qadr (the Night of Power) as is possible throughout these 10 nights. For this Dua literally wipes out sins rather than just mere forgiveness of sins اَللَّهُمَّ اِنَّكَ عَفُوٌّ ، تُحِبُّ الْعَفْوَ فَاعْفُ عَنِّي Allahumma innaka ‘affuwwun tuhibbul ‘afwa fa’fu ‘anni’ ‘ O Allah You are The One Who forgives greatly, and loves to forgive, so forgive me. [at Tirmidhi] 4 - Give in charity: Give some charity during these 10 nights as any good act like charity during Laylatul Qadr is rewarded like one has done it for over 83 years! 5 - EAT LIGHT: as one is going to stay up until Fajr and the more one eats the harder it will be to stay up and the less productive one will be! 6 - Hydrate well: Keep some water with you at all times. This well help you stay up, feel energised and refreshed and have a clearer mind 7 - Complete all tasks before hand: So that we are free to worship the 10 nights without being disturbed by having to complete worldy tasks. This is in order to spend minimum time on things other than worship. 8 - Show exemplary character: The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Nothing is weightier on the Scale of Deeds than one’s Good manners.” (Al-Bukhari) So surely we should aim to be the best in character during these blessed nights and then continue to do so the rest of the year. So we must not argue, swear, backbite, slander or gossip. These things are prohibited anyway but how can we display such characteristics during these blessed few nights? 9 - No time wasting: We must make firm intention that during these blessed 10 nights that we will take part in NO idle talk and NOT watch TV, or play Games, or spend time on Social Media. There is 355 days in the year for all that. This is just 10 nights! Utter loss and regret for those of us who waste these blessed 10 nights!!! 10- Making life changes : Ramadan is not just for one month but it is for the whole year. So we should make the necessary changes that we need to make in order to better ourselves as Muslims and what better time to make such changes than during these blessed 10 nights where we can change our lives for the better forever. So we must internalise these changes and make firm commitment to Allah and it maybe that he will wipe our sins clean like we were a new born baby. The following is a possible worship routine for the last 10 blessed nights of Ramadan which can be adjusted according to the times in ones own country: 09:30 - 10:00 pm - Open fast with dates and water and Pray Maghrib (Men with congregation and women at home). After that pray the 2 Sunnah and as many Nawafil (Voluntary) prayers in sets of 2 raka'ahs as one can manage. Bonus: The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Whoever draws near to Allah during it (Ramadan) with a single characteristic from the characteristics of (voluntary) goodness, he is like whoever performs an obligatory act in other times. And whoever performs an obligatory act during it, he is like whoever performed seventy obligatory acts in other times.” (Sahih Ibn Khuzaymah, no. 1887) So each Fard prayer during Ramadan entails a reward of 70 obligatory prayers and each voluntary prayer entails a reward of a Fard prayer. Can you imagine how much more reward a voluntary and Fard prayer will be rewarded during Laylatul Qadr,? Subhanallah! you will be rewarded like you have prayed the Fard and voluntary prayers for over 83 years! 10:00 - 10:15 pm - Eat light in order to have optimum energy for worship. Avoid heavy and fried foods which will make one lethargic. Bonus: The lighter the stomach the more worship. The more worship the more reward! 10:15 - 10:30 pm - Get ready and prepared to pray Isha and Tarawee. Make Ghusl or Wudu. Pray 2 Rakat Tahiyyatul Wudu after every Wudu. Wear ones best clothes and put on Attar and use Miswaak and comb hair, beard etc. Bonus 1: Looking ones best actually has a significant impact in making one more productive! These are the nights of maximum productivity! So look & smell good to be more productive! Bonus 2: Walk to the Masjid if you are not in I'tikaf. Each and every step is rewarded like you have been walking to the Masjid for over 83 years! Subhanallah! 10:30 pm - 12:00 am - Pray Isha & Taraweeh. Men with congregation and women may also pray in the Masjid in order to hear recitation of Qur'an, if the facilities are available and there is no danger of free mixing. Pray 2 rakat Tahiyyatul Masjid upon arriving at the Masjid and also remember to pray the 4 raka'ahs of Sunnah before the 4 Fard of Isha' which is often neglected. Bonus: Praying Taraweeh during the night of power will bring rewards of over 83 years for each and every letter recited by the Imam and for each and every prostration (Sajda). 12:00 - 12:30 am - As soon as Taraweeh is finished then prepare for worship until Fajr. Make Fresh Wudu or Ghusl if one wants. Drink water to hydrate. If one is hungry then eat (LIGHT). Either stay at the Masjid or go home immediately not partaking in any idle talk and go straight to the spot where there will be no disturbances and begin worship immediately being firm in remaining free of any disturbances. NO PROCRASTINATION during these blessed 10 nights! Bonus: The less time we waste the more time we have for worship. The more time we have for worship the more we can gain unimaginable rewards during these blessed 10 nights! 12:30 - 1:30 am - Recite Qur'an with its tafseer (Meanings of the Qur'an) and contemplate and ponder over the words of Allah. Bonus: In one of these nights was the auspicious night that the Noble Qur'an was revealed. So surely we should spend most of these nights reciting the Qur'an. Each and every letter is normally rewarded as 10 good deeds and during Ramadan this is increased further, but during Laylatul Qadr each letter will be rewarded like one has recited it for over 83 years. Subanallah! 1:30 - 2:00 am - Salaatul Tasbih. Or continue reciting Qur'an with Tafseer and recite the Laylatul Qadr Dua as much as possible for wiping out sins. Bonus: Salaatul Tasbih contains a Dhikr (remembrance of Allah) which is one of the best glorifications of Allah (Abu Dawud): Subhaanallaahi walhamdu lillaahi walaa ilaaha illallaahu wallaahu Akbar This is recited 300 times during this prayer. So can you imagine the rewards of reciting this prayer during Laylatul Qadr? Subanallah! How to Pray Salaatul Tasbih: Pray like a normal 4 raka'ah (Nawafil) prayer except above Dhikr is said 15 times after the Surah after Surah Faathiha,10 times in Ruku (After Subanarabbiyyal Adheem), 10 times after Qiyaam (Saami-Allah), 10 times in Sajda (After Subhanarabiyyal Adheem),10 times when up from Sajda in sitting position,10 times in second Sajda,10 times when up from second sajda in sitting position. Repeat for every Raka'h. 2:00 - 2:45 am - 8 Rakats of Tahajjud prayer with long Sajdas reciting as many Sura'hs as one knows by memory. Before hand reading the meanings of the Surahs that are going to be recited in order to gain Khushu and feel the Surah's being recited in ones heart. Bonus: The best Nawafil (voluntary) prayer is Tahajjud and it is a prayer in order to get closer to Almighty Allah which can be prayed after Isha until just before Fajr begins. The best recitation of the Qur'an is that done during Tahajjud prayer. So one should recite as much of the Qur'an as one has memorised and in the long prostrations ask and beg of Allah in Arabic for forgiveness and mercy and surely Allah will never turn away his slaves who beg of him during this prayer. 2:45 - 3:00 am - Eat Suhoor slightly earlier so as to spend the last half an hour in Dua as Dua just before Fajr is the best and most accepted Dua and any Dua on Laylatul Qadr is accepted without doubt. Bonus: Prepare Suhoor in the day and put it away in the fridge as nothing should get in the way of our worship during these blessed nights. Preparing Suhoor before hand leaves us with more time to worship. As I keep saying: The more time we have for worship the more unimaginable and incomprehensible rewards we can gain! 3:00 am until Fajr begins. Devote the last half an hour in Dua. Beg and cry unto Allah, by praising and glorifying him using his beautiful names asking for his mercy, forgiveness and for our parents, families and ourselves. Ask for anything ones heart desires. Include Dua's for the Ummah. Surely Allah will accept each and every sincere Dua during these blessed 10 nights more so more than any night of the year on the Night of power! Bonus: Make a Dua list and be sure to cover everything you can think of so that your mind does not go blank during making Dua on these blessed nights. So if we have made a Dua list before hand then we can make the best Dua which will cover everything and during these blessed nights Duas are readily accepted and if we catch the Night of power during these 10 nights then our Duas will be accepted without a doubt. Subhanallah! Repeat this schedule for each and every night of worship during the last 10 nights of Ramadan and know that at least one of the nights we will gain the rewards like we did each and every worship for over 83 years. Subhanallah that is longer than most of us will live! May Allah enable us to make the best of these nights and gain the rewards may he enable us to catch the blessed Night of Power and gain the rewards that are promised for it. Ameen

    7 Tips to Maximize the Rewards in the Last 10 Days of Ramadan http://productivemuslim.com/maximize-rewards-last-10-days-ramadan/#ixzz4kfxfuSWc
  13. The Best Sale in the Universe is on Now! This is it. The best sale in the Universe is on NOW but it only lasts for 30 days each year so grab what you can now before it is too late!!! It is a forgiveness and good deed free for all like at no other time of the year!!! Opportunity of a lifetime! Imagine you were given an opportunity to go through a huge Supermarket and everything in store was 70% or more off.

  17. Simple Good deeds for All of us to do everyday! ITS RAMADAN SO EVERYACT IS MULTIPLIED SOOOO MUCH MORE SO GET GOING AND DO AS MUCH GOOD DEEDS AND ZIKR AS YOU CAN!!!!! HERE'S SOME WAYS OF EARNING LOOOOOOADS OF GOOD DEEDS INSHALLAH!! | | Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) said: "Is anyone of you incapable of earning one thousand Hasanah (rewards) a day?" Someone from the gathering asked, "How can anyone of us earn a thousand Hasanah?" Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) said: "Glorify Allah a hundred times by just saying “Subhanallah” and a Good deeds will be written for you, or a thousand sins will be wiped away.” | | [Muslim 4:2073] | | | | Hadhrat Abu Dharr [Ra] narrated that Rasulallah [saw] said: “Should I not tell you of one treasure of the unlimited treasures of Paradise?” I replied spontaneously “Oh Rasulallah (Saw) that would be an honour indeed!” Rasulallah (Saw) said: “That rare treasure is LA HAWLA WA LA QUWWATA ILLA BILLAH.” (“The strength to do good and to refrain from evil comes from the grace and mercy of Allah!”) - (Ibn Majah) | | | | Hadhrat Jaa'bir [Ra] narrated that Rasulallah [saw] said: “For the person who recites SUB-HAN'Allah HIL AZEEM WA BI-HAM'DIHI, [Pure and perfect is Allah in his glory and praise], - A date palm will be planted for him in Paradise” (Tirmidhi) | | | | | | Hadhrat Abu Sa'eed [RA] narrated that RASUL'ULLAH [sAW] said: “ON THE DAY OF JUDGEMENT, A RAM WILL BE BROUGHT AND POSITIONED BETWEEN PARADISE AND HELL. IT WILL THEN BE SLAUGHTERED. THE DWELLERS OF PARADISE AND HELL WILL OBSERVE THIS SCENE [OF THE END OF DEATH]. IF IT WAS STILL POSSIBLE TO DIE, THE DWELLERS OF PARADISE WOULD HAVE DIED OF HAPPINESS AND JOY. IF IT WAS POSSIBLE TO DIE, THE DWELLERS OF HELL WOULD HAVE PREFERRED TO DIE OF GRIEF AND SORROW.” - (Tirmidhi) | | | | Hadhrat Mu'az [RA] narrated RASUL'ULLAH [sAW] said: “THE INHABITANTS OF PARADISE WILL NOT BE GRIEF-STRICKEN OR SORROWFUL ABOUT ANYTHING THEY DID IN THE LIFE OF THE WORLD EXCEPT FOR THE TIME THEY SPENT WITHOUT BEING IN THE DHIKR-REMEMBRANCE OF Allah [sWT].” - (Tab'raani) | | | | Over a Billion Rewards in Just a Few Seconds: | | | | Narrated ‘Ubaadah that the Messenger of Allah said, “Whoever seeks forgiveness for the believing men and believing women, Allah will write for him a good deed for each believing man and believing woman.” (Tabarrani, classed as hasan by Albani) | | That Which Shall Have no Equal on the Day of Resurrection: | | Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said,” Whoever says one hundred times in a day: | | | | “La ilaha illal-lah wahdahu la sharika lahu, lahu-l-mulk wa lahu-l-hamd wa huwa ‘ala kulli shai’in qadir,” {”None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, the Alone Who has no partners, to Him belongs Dominion and to Him belong all the Praises, and He has power over all things (i.e. Omnipotent)”,} | | | | he will get the same reward as given for manumitting ten slaves; and one hundred good deeds will be written in his accounts, and one hundred sins will be deducted from his accounts, and it (his saying) will be a shield for him from Satan on that day till night, and nobody will be able to do a better deed except the one who does more than he.” (Bukhari,Book #75, Hadith #412) | | | | Forgiveness for Sins Even Though They Be like the Foam of the Sea: | | | | Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “Whoever says, ‘Subhan Allah wa bihamdihi, {Allah is free from imperfection and His is the praise}. one hundred times a day, will be forgiven all his sins even if they were as much as the foam of the sea. (Bukhari,Book #75, Hadith #414) | | | | Four Phrases that are Heavier in the Scales than an Entire Morning of Thikr: | | | | The Mother of the Believers, Juwairiyah bint Al-Harith reported that the Prophet came out from my apartment in the morning as I was busy in performing the dawn prayer. He came back in the forenoon and found me sitting there. The Prophet said,”Are you still in the same position as I left you.” I replied in the affirmative. Thereupon the Prophet said, “I recited four phrases three times after I had left you. If these are to be weighed against all you have recited since morning, these will be heavier. These are: | | | | Subhan-Allah wa bihamdihi, ‘adada khalqihi, wa rida-a nafsihi, wa zinatah ‘arshihi, wa midada kalimatihi {Allah is free from imperfection and I begin with His praise, as many times as the number of His creatures, in accordance with His Good Pleasure, equal to the ink that may be used in recording the words (for His Praise).” (Muslim) | | | | A Phrase that Comes with Rewards in the Millions: | | On the authority of Abdullah ibn ‘Umar that the Prophet said,”Whoever enters a market and says: | | | | ‘Laa ilaaha ill Allah waHdahu laa shareeka lah, lahul mulku wa lahul Hamdu yuHyi wa yumeetu wa huwa Hayyun laa yamoot, bi yadihil khayr, wahuwa ‘alaa kulli shay’in qadeer’ | | | | {There is nothing worthy of worship but Allah, He is alone without partner, to Him belongs the dominion and the praise, he causes life and death and He is the Living One and will never die. In His Hand is all good, and He is over all things capable.} | | | | Allah will write for him a million good deeds, erase a million of his bad deeds and build for him a house in Jannah .”And in another narration, which is also classed as hasan, instead of mentioning that Allah will build a house in Jannah, it states,”and he will be raised one million levels.” {Tirmidhi,classed as Hasan by Albani}. | | Beautiful Supplication for Forgiveness: | | | | Shaddad bin Aus (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Prophet (PBUH) said, “The best supplication for seeking forgiveness (Syed-ul-Istighfar) is to say: `Allahumma Anta Rabbi, la ilaha illa Anta, khalaqtani wa ana `abduka, wa ana `ala `ahdika wa wa`dika mastata`tu, a`udhu bika min sharri ma sana`tu, abu‘u laka bini`matika `alayya, wa abu‘u bidhanbi faghfir li, fa innahu la yaghfirudh-dhunuba illa Anta. | | | | (O Allah! You are my Rubb. There is no true god except You. You have created me, and I am Your slave, and I hold to Your Covenant as far as I can. I seek refuge in You from the evil of what I have done. I acknowledge the favours that You have bestowed upon me, and I confess my sins. Pardon me, for none but You has the power to pardon).’ | | | | He who supplicates in these terms during the day with firm belief in it and dies on the same day (before the evening), he will be one of the dwellers of Jannah; and if anyone supplicates in these terms during the night with firm belief in it and dies before the morning, he will be one of the dwellers of Jannah.” | | [Al-Bukhari].

  18. The Blessed Day of Arafaat is tomorrow (Sunday 11th Sept) The best day of the entire year is upon us - The blessed day of Arafat - is tomorrow (Sun 11th Sept) from Fajr . 10 things we can do to make the best of the Blessed Day of Arafat: Out of 365 days in a year, the day of Arafat has been singled out to be the best day of all. Even better than any day of Ramadan. Therefore we cannot possibly afford to miss out on the immense rewards that are available on this most special day. This is a day where we can change our lives forever & get closer to Allah & gain forgiveness for an entire lifetime of sins: The Prophet (SallAllaahu Alayhi wa sallam) said: "There is no day when Allah sets free more slaves from the Fire than the day of 'Arafat. He (Allaah) draws near, then He boasts about them before the Angels and says: 'What do these people want?'" (Muslim) It is a day when the reward of good deeds are increased significantly. For eg. If there was a sale on where everything was buy 1 get 70 free you would see people queuing for miles and even trampling on each other to get such a deal. But in reality the day of Arafat is far more valuable than this. So we should grab as much as we can on this blessed day! The following is a worship plan for the day of Arafat: 1. Intend to fast on this special day: The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) was asked about fasting on the day of Arafah. He replied, "Fasting on the day of Arafat is an expiation (for sins) for the preceding year and the following year...[Muslim] SubhanAllah! Refer to your local Masjid prayer timetable to for Suhur (When Fajr begins) and Iftaar (When Maghrib begins) times. 2. Prepare food for Suhur before sleeping and sleep early in order to awaken a little earlier for the Tahajjud prayer. Surely Allah listens to the prayers of those who ask of him in the depths of the night when most people are asleep. Ensure you eat something for Suhoor as there is a blessing during this time, even if it is a date, and then pray Tahajjud & intense Dua until Fajr begins. 3. Pray the 5 prayers on time - In congregation at the Masjid for men. 4. Pray the 12 Rakah Sunnah's on this day - For a reward of a palace in Jannah! ( 2 Rakah Sunnah - Fajr, 4 & 2 Rakah Sunnah - Dhuhur, 2 Rakah Sunnah - Maghrib & 2 Rakah Sunnah - Isha) 5. Pray many Nawafil (Voluntary) prayers as much as possible on this day particularly Tahajjud which is the best Nawafil prayer - 2-8 Rakah just before Fajr begins, 2 - 8 Rakah Nawafil Salaatul Duha between 20 mins after sunrise until before Dhuhur begins, 2 Rakah Nawafil in Dhuhur, 2 Rakah Nawafil in Maghrib, 2 Rakah in Isha & 2 Rakah Nawafil in Isha. 2 Rakah Nawafil after every Wudu & 2 Rakah Nawafil whenever at the Masjid. 6. Recite the following constantly during this blessed day no matter what you are doing: Subhanallah, Alhamdulillah, Allahu Akbar, La ilaha ilallah. Make a target of reciting at least 1000 each or however many is realistic for you. While doing so think of what you are saying and also contemplate on the greatness of Allah. 7. Recite the Quran as much as possible. Make a target for yourself. Three Juz (chapter), two, one, half a Juz, or even a page. 8. Make much Dua on this blessed day: The day of Arafaat is the day of Dua. We should make a pre prepared list of what we want to ask Allah on this auspicious day. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: "The best du'aa is du'aa of the day of 'Arafah...(Tirmidhi) Repent and thank Allah and ask of him your hearts desires, needs and wants. Make sure you make the most of the blessed times to make Dua which are 20-30 minutes before Fajr begins & 20-30 minutes before Maghrib begins. 9. Give much Charity as much as you canafford on this day - whether it is £1000, £500, £250 £100, £50, £25, £10 or whatever change you have. If you have not given Qurbani yet then there is no better time than on this blessed day: Please give whatever you can for a home for Widows and Orphans in Syria that I am raising for with the charity - One Nation. 100% donation policy: http://https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/orphanhomesinsyriafarrukh 10. Take every opportunity to do good deeds on this blessed day whether it is by serving your parents, being good to your neighbours, being the best towards other people no matter how they are towards you solely to please Allah. Good manners & character are the heaviest on the good deed scales so be the best person you can be. Even a smile to your fellow Muslim or moving an object from the path is reward. Every act can be a reward with good intentions and sincerity. Please forward to as many people as you can so all can benefit from this as it will be a great reward for anyone who acts upon this. So let us make the best of this most blessed day. Remember there is no guarantee we will be alive tomorrow let alone next year. So if you want to make life changes and get closer to Allah then there is no better time to do so than now. Our enemy satan only wants us to keep putting off these changes until death takes us when it will be too late. May Allah enable us to make the best of this blessed day and make it a means for us to change our lives for the better forever by making us fully immerse into the deen and to get closer to him. Ameen

  20. How to productively spend 10 days of Dhul Hijjah: http://productivemuslim.com/how-to-productively-spend-10-days-of-dhul-hijjah/
  21. We are now half Way through Ramadan and many of us are regrettful of what has passed without doing many good deeds. But fear not there is still time. A Muslim continues to strive until the end! The best of days and nights are yet to come. The first of the blessed 10 nights begins this Saturday from Maghrib and the first day on Sunday from Fajr: Ibn al-Jawzi said: "When the race horse knows that it is nearing the end of the track it exerts all of its effort to win the race. Do not allow the race horse to be more clever than you. For verily, deeds are judged by their conclusions. So if you didn't do well with welcoming Ramadan then perhaps you will do better bidding it farewell." Ibn Taymiyyah said: "The lesson lies in perfection of the conclusion of a thing, not in the shortcomings of the beginning of it." Hasan al-Basri said: "Improve your performance in what is left (of time) and you will be forgiven for that which has already passed. So take special care of the time you have left because you do not know when your soul will be turned over to Allah’s Mercy.” So let us learn from what has passed and make the best of the present for any secind may be our last and we may not see another Ramadan!
  22. Ramadan has almost gone & most of us are in utter regret for the time we have wasted this Ramadan. However we must not give up hope! A few blessed days and nights still remain & it is the opinion of most of the Sahaba and majority of scholars is that Laylatul Qadr is most likely to be on the night of the twenty-seventh. It was reported, in a hadith narrated by Ahmad from Ibn 'Umar, and a hadith narrated by Abu Dawud from Mu'awiyah, that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: "Laylat al-Qadr is the night of the twenty-seventh." [Musnad Ahmad and Sunan Abu Dawud, 1386] . Ubayy ibn Ka'b (Ra) used to assert, without saying "insha'Allah", that it was the night of the twenty-seventh. Zurr ibn Hubaysh said: I said: What makes you say that, O Abu'l-Mundhir? He said: by the signs of which the Messengers of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) told us: that the sun rises that morning with no visible rays. [Narrated by Muslim,2/268] . Many marfu' ahadith were narrated which said that it was on this particular night. Ibn 'Abbas also stated that it is the night of the twenty-seventh. He reached this conclusion by means of an amazing process. It was reported that 'Umar gathered the Sahabah together and included Ibn 'Abbas even though he was very young. They said, "Ibn 'Abbas is like one of our children. Why have you brought him here with us?" 'Umar said: "He is a youth who has a good mind and who asks lots of questions." Then he asked the Sahabah about Laylat al-Qadr, and they agreed that it was one of the last ten nights of Ramadan. He asked Ibn 'Abbas about it, and he said: "I think I know when it is: it is the night of the twenty-seventh." 'Umar said, "What makes you think that?" He said, "Allah made the heavens seven, and the earths seven, and the days seven, and He created man from seven, and He made Tawaf seven (circuits), and al-Sa'i seven, and the stoning of the Jamar seven." So Ibn' Abbas thought that it was the night of the twenty-seventh because of this analysis. This has been soundly reported from Ibn 'Abbas. Therefore we must give it our all in this blessed night. We may not see another Ramadan or Laylatul Qadr like many who have passed away before Ramadan. We know we can be seized by death at any moment so surely we must ensure that we pass away whilst doing good and not whilst in sin. So this night must be a night that we change ourselves and strive to get closer to Allah and live for the Hereafter not this temporary life. May Allah enable us to make the best of the nights that remain. Ameen
