An Interesting Series Of Unfortunate Events

Recommended Posts

Hey everybody hope all of you are well and happy inshallah,

I am a fully practicing Muslim pray all my salaah not all on time, especially Fajr (when life is changing and your imam is low, it’s a struggle to wake up on time trust me).

I going through an interesting series of unfortunate events, I try not to complain and try to be gratefully for what I have but when each day things get worse its hard to be thankful.

It all started 5 years ago when my mother died before I reverted to Islam (my mother death being a major factor in my revertion anyway that’s another story. Ps mind you a year before my mother’s death my father died).

I could not concentrate at university with my parents dying and all that so I dropped out, started working and living at home with my older brother. My brother can not be described as very loving to say the least. So after 3 years of torture (everything from mental, to physical attacks that is again another story we never really had a loving relationship and my mother death made it a lot worse) I had to move out for my own sake, I went to live with a friend and his family. All was well for a while until I lost my job (fired in fact unfairly but I took them to court and won some money), the people I was living with cared for me and did not mind that I could not pay the rent.

Then after a year Alhamdulillah I became a Muslim, which became a double edge sword meaning, the family I was living with were Atheist.

I was forced to move out in a rather strange incident when my friends mum reacted wired to me praying in her house (that another story, before I became a Muslim, she loved me like her son) anyway, I was able to move in with another friend and his family (again atheist), things were good for a while (not great but I could not complain, I was finding it hard to get a job but my rent was being paid for by the government not proud of that but I was paying my taxes for 8 years when I was working) then I started to distance my self from my friend. Let me explain, before I was a Muslim I used to smoke a lot of dupe to cope with life and my friend was my smoking buddy, but I stopped and he love the drug, I did not want to be around that anymore, so I more or less just stayed in my bedroom.

Now this is when things just get better my friend has recently got really irritated that I don’t hag around him anymore and I’ve now been told that I am not really welcomed in the house anymore, they told me but I think they won’t throw out because it is winter and very cold outside and they no my situation, but I can I stay,

This means I am basically homeless, jobless, no qualifications and with no one to turn to with a very dim distant prospect of getting married and living a happy life.

That’s the basic jist of it (ps I know I sound a bit chirpy but if I’m not I would be very unhappy).

Can people make Duaa for me please, please or just send me some nice replies so I can feel happy abut things,

I know life is a test by Allah SWT, and Allah SWT does not Burden us with what we can not handle but I think I am going to losing my mind.

I make a lot of Duass so much that some times I can’t be bothered because I think its not ever going to happen.

Sallamm..

 

IA I will make duaa to Allah SWT for you..

Is there a msoque in your area?. Perhaps you should go there and talk to the Imam and others there..

Meanwhile, do not worry too much, put complete trust in Allah and continue to invoke Him to make things better for you.

The benefits of Surah al Waqiah (56)

 

The Prophet (peace be upon him)said, ‘Whoever recites surah al Waqiah at night would never encounter poverty’ [ibn Sunni 620]

 

The Prophet said, ‘Surah al Waqiah is the Surah of Wealth, so recite it and teach it to your children’[ibn Asakir]

Asalaamu Alaikum Wr Wb,

 

Overcoming tests from Allah[using large font size is not allowed]

 

Allah, Glory be to Him, says in the Quran: "Do men think that they will be left alone on saying, 'We believe,' and that they will not be tested? We did test those before them, and Allah will certainly know those who are true from those who are false" (Quran, 29: 2-3).

 

By virtue of being created as human beings, we will be tested. We will be thrown into countless trials, into situations that may arise unpleasant and awkward, and into times of difficulty when it seems as though there is little reason to hope.

 

Tests will come at us from every direction; events will test the very core of our character and the strength of our beliefs. And these are the tests we cannot afford to fail. And Allah, Glory be to Him, has not left us empty-handed.

 

Building our knowledge and our characters as Muslims is the only way to overcome the mild to the severe trials we will face every day until we die. He says: "Have you not seen how Allah has given the parable of a beautiful word like a beautiful tree whose roots are firmly established, and whose branches tower in the sky? It gives its fruits at all times by the permission of its Lord, and Allah sets forth parables for mankind in order that they may remember" (Quran, 14: 24-25).

 

A "beautiful word" in this verse refers to the Islamic statement of belief: la illaha ill Allah (there is no being worthy of worship except Allah). And the verse goes on to refer to a beautiful tree, which illustrates the character of a believer.

 

According to this verse, a believer is one whose Iman, or faith, is unwavering and firmly established. He or she cannot be swayed from the straight path by the winds of trials, no matter how fierce the storm. Knowing and believing that there is no being worthy of worship except Allah, Glory be to Him, and following His commandments provides a believer with the stability and confidence he or she needs to succeed.

 

A believer's branches also "tower in the sky" like that of the beautiful tree. By this analogy, a believer's Iman cannot remain hidden. A Muslim cannot claim to have Iman solely in the heart while not having it show in his or her actions.

 

Contrary to that, Iman is something so significant that by its nature, it must be seen by anyone who looks at or interacts with a Muslim. Your Iman raises you up to a higher moral level, just as the braches of the beautiful tree reach upwards towards to the sky.

 

These verses also mention that this tree that is compared with a true believer "gives its fruits at all times by the permission of its Lord." The tree of Iman is ever fruitful, unlike a real tree that only gives fruits at certain times of the year.

 

Your faith and your belief in la illaha ill Allah sustains you night and day, in every season, during times of ease and times of great hardship. This is the parable of the believer whose good deeds never take a vacation – they are continuous throughout the day and the night. The chapter goes on to say "And the parable of an evil word is that of an evil tree uprooted from the surface of earth having no stability" (Quran 14: 26). An "evil word" in this verse refers to disbelief.

 

The verse describes the powerlessness and volatility of disbelief – it has no basis and he or she who disbelieves has little stability in life. The trials and difficulties of life can easily uproot such a person.

 

May Allah, Glory be to Him, make us be of those who are firmly rooted in their beliefs.

 

Islamic history is riddled with examples of Muslims who withstood tests that would seem unimaginably difficult today.

 

The Muslims of the past had an abundance of patience and perseverance which are two important traits of this beautiful tree of Iman.

 

Two Muslims who were of the most firmly rooted of believers were Sumayyah and Yasir, may God be pleased with them. After being among the first Muslims and agreeing to accept Islam in a very tumultuous period, Sumayyah and Yasir along with their son Ammar were tortured mercilessly at the hands of Abu Jahl. The family was left unprotected since they had no tribal affiliations in Makkah.

 

Unable to physically help them at the time, the prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, would visit them and say, "be patient, O family of Yasir, because your promised place is Paradise." He would then turn his face to the sky and say: "O Lord! Forgive the family of Yasir." The prophet also prayed for the alleviation of Ammar's suffering by placing Ammar's head in his lap and saying: "O fire! Be cool and harmless for Ammar in the same manner in which you became cool and harmless for Ibrahim."

 

Sumayyah and Yasir were both martyred in the cause of Allah, Glory be to Him, after refusing to leave their faith which was dearer to them than life itself. The family was honoured with the best of honours: the prophet's guarantee of their home in paradise. These are the examples we should take as guides to our own lives. Too often do we compromise what we believe in to accommodate the uneducated assumptions of others. Too often do we forget the immense history of Islam and Muslims.

 

One of the reasons we have the gift of Islam is because we stand on the shoulders of people like Sumayyah and Yasir, may Allah be pleased with them. People who did not waver, did not compromise their Iman to please others or even to save their own lives. Just like in our Islamic history, our strength as a community and as individuals today can only stem from the remembrance of and obedience to Allah, Glory be to Him. These times are difficult and the pain often hits close to home. But by holding fast to our belief in la illaha ill Allah , we will stay firmly rooted, our branches will tower high towards the sky, and our hearts will never lack sustenance, InshaAllah.

 

Sources: Tafsir Ibn Kathir, Volume 5

 

Allah tells us that we will be tested. He also makes it clear to us what is expected from us when we undergo these trials and what our reward will be if we are successful.

 

He says: “Be sure we shall test you with something of fear and hunger, some loss in goods, lives and the fruits (of your toil) but give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere. Those who, when misfortune strikes them, say: ‘Indeed we belong to Allah and to Him is our return. Those are the ones upon whom are blessings and mercy from their Lord and it is those who are rightly guided.” [sûrah al-Baqarah: 155]

 

The Prophet (peace be upon him)said: "No fatigue, illness, anxiety, sorrow, harm or sadness afflicts any Muslim, even to the extent of a thorn pricking him, without Allah wiping out his sins by it." [sahîh al-Bukhârî and Sahîh Muslim]

 

In another narration, the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “No Muslim is afflicted by harm, whether it is but the prick of a thorn or something worse, without Allah expiating his evil deeds on account of it and his sins falling away from him like leaves off a tree.'" [sahîh al-Bukhârî]

 

 

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: "When Allah desires good for someone, He tries him with hardships." [sahîh al-Bukhârî]

 

In reality, the entire Sacred Law is a tremendous blessing for us in this life and the next.

 

Obligations that initially seem difficult to fulfill have a polishing effect on the heart until eventually the one's entire perspective changes. Outward submission leads to inward submission and heart fills with love and gratitude for Allah.

 

Obligations are not meant to be hammered out reluctantly; they are meant to be offered in the spirit of heartfelt gratitude to Allah for the myriad blessings that each of us has been given. Someone who is realized in this state will do everything for Allah; "worldly" activities such as eating, drinking, and conversing with friends are all performed with the intention of drawing closer to Allah.

 

Such a person will not worry over possible future problems, nor will he grieve over past difficulties, for he is busy with the One he loves. This is true happiness and anyone who misses out on it will never know the meaning of contentment.

 

So know that Allah is testing us because he wants good for us and he wants to see if we are going to come closer to him or more further away from him.

 

Shaythan is wanting us to weaken and fail the tests from Allah so will we let shaythan win? Or will we make the best of these opportunities and get closer to Allah than we have EVER been?

 

For if we are patient then Allah is with us so NOTHING can hurt or effect us!

 

Allah mentions in the Qur'an:

 

“Indeed Allah is with those who are patient.”

 

If one is patient, and is among the ones described in the following manner in the Qur’an (Baqarah, 2: 256)

 

Inna Lillahi Wa Inna Ilaihee Raaji'oon

 

“To Allah We belong, and to Him is our return”:-

 

The Reward for Patience is Paradise

 

‘Ata ibn Rabah related that he heard Ibn ‘Abbas say: “Shall I show you a woman of Paradise?” I said: “Yes, indeed.” He said: “A black woman came to the Prophet, peace be upon him, and said: ‘I suffer from epileptic fits, and because of these, (at times) my body becomes uncovered. Would you invoke Allah, the Exalted One, to cure me of this disease? ‘ The Prophet, peace be upon him, said: ‘If you wish, you can be patient and you will attain Paradise (for this suffering). But if you prefer, I will pray to Allah, the Exalted, to cure you of it?’ The woman said: ‘I will be patient,’ then added: ‘I become uncovered (when I have fits), so invoke Allah for me that I do not become uncovered. ‘ So the Prophet, peace be upon him, prayed for her.” [source: Fiqh-us-Sunnah, volume 4, #1a]

 

So tests and calamitys are a blessing in disguise and Allah wanting us to get closer to him so if we bare with in with Patience hoping for reward then Allah is with us and best of all we will get closer to Allah and feel true contentment and happiness in the heart and we will attain Paradise inshallah!

as salaam alikum,

thank you for your dua's, things have not really changed but i've started working and supporting myself alhamdulillah and i am grateful to Allah SWT, you know what i was really down a while back and i starting thinking, wait a minute i have i ever gone through a day without eating even if it was a date or a biscuit or do i have to sleep on the streets and the answer was no.

i may not have a lot but there are people in this world who have nothing or have lost everything so i can only thank Allah that i have not suffered as much as others.

to be honest i have learnt a lot from this,

1. i have became a lot more humble as an individual,

2. i have learnt to value the small things in life,

3. and most importantly i learnt that i should be a lot more thankful toAllah, and put more faith in our lord and inshallah Allah will give me more.

 

may Allah bless us all,

inshallah happiness will reach me either in this world or the next,

jazakallah khair

and please make duaa's for me and every Muslim in this world, theres someone out there who Allah loves and inshallah that person duaa will be granted.

as salaam alikum

Continue to make dua as we will for you. Things will only get better and more. Allah puts us through these tests and rough times to see how we cope with it all. You know oru Prophey did not live the best of lives as everyday was a struggle for him. The stuff he went through, I dont think a lot of people out there could cope with what he had if not most people. This should be an example for all people and Muslims. Try to read more about his struggles when you get a chance iA, as this will always strengthen your will and Perseverance.

 

From the original post and the post right before this one, it seems like you have made some progress. You did have a job, but now you do. So you are moving up. These things or anything in life, it all happens once at a time and not all at once (e.g. first you get a job, then you get a place to live, then you make money at your job, etc). You should be thankful that you do have a warm place to stay and some things to eat, and Alhumdilliah you are thankful for it.

 

I found this useful article that you may be able to check it when you get a chance iA.

It is a good article dealing with stress and daily life.

Salaam. No brother or sista should ever face being homeless. The suggestions to speak with an Imam from your Masjid is the best! If you must go to a shelter, then you must, but first try the ummah because you seem to be so disappointed to the point you think "why borther to pray." When we feel "why bother to pray, THAT is the time to pray! We will remember you in our duaas after Isha.
