Wear a Hijab Day

Posted in Islamic news, Think about it on September 12, 2010 by Muslimah

 

 “Join us! If you are also horrified by the recent outrageous fear mongering of the right wing against American Muslims then here is a way to push back. I am not a Muslim but I plan to wear the hijab on 9/11 as a gesture to American Muslims that they are full citizens of this country and deserve the same rights as the rest of us. Concerned men might wear skull caps in solidarity with us women.”

From: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=144913692209438&ref=ts#!/group.php?gid=144913692209438

From Muslimah: There are good people out there that are looking for peace and not hate. We might find a large number of people who are against Islam and believes that we are the terrorists and this religion is only about hate. Yet, if they just give themselves the time to read and understand about Islam, I ‘m sure that all these misconceptions will be solved. May Allah take them to the right path Ameen.

A Day in a Faster’s Life

Posted in Extra Knowledge, Think about it on September 7, 2009 by Muslimah

Do you want to protect yourself from the thirst of 50,000 years on the Day of Judgment? When you fast one day in Ramadan, this means you fast 14 hours = 50,000 seconds.

Do you imagine that these 50,000 seconds protect you from the thirst of 50,000 years on the Day of Judgment? (This means that one second in Ramadan equals an entire year of the years of thirst and head on Judgment day!)

Dear brothers and sisters, half of Ramadan has already gone, once missed..it cannot be recovered. It is enough that you missed many Ramadans in your life. If you fell once, rise up and do not despair. Let this Ramadan be as if it were the last in your life. So, whet your resolution and start Ramadan projects with us as much as possible:

PROJECT (1):  How to be a multi-millionaire in 30 days?

-Do you know that the good deeds of reciting the whole Qur’an on regular days = 3.3 million good deeds deeds (it means that it cancels 3.3 million bad deeds).

Then, what about the recitation of the whole Qur’an in Ramadan? Here are hundreds of millions of good deeds in your hands. Would you let them go? Then you shall regret every single good deed you lost on the Day of Judgment? Recitation of the whole Qur’an will make you balance more than that of millionaires and billionaires!! Subhan Allah

PROJECT (2): Ramadan has changed me – Taraweeh, preparation project

Taraweeh is: the restful night prayer in Ramadan.

Prepare the part of Qur’an to be recited at night during the taraweeh prayer. Read it after afternoon prayer with deliberation and reflection and you will realize the profound difference in your concentration at taraweeh prayer.  (In this way, you will achieve two recitations of the whole Qur’an: the one at taraweeh and the one after afternoon prayer).

If possible, read the interpretation of that part or listen to a cassette on the same topic. Then you would achieve a rare recitation of the whole Qur’an: Study recitation. You can then say that there is a real change in Ramadan. Do not say that this is difficult; always remember that you’re doing this for Allah.

PROJECT (3): Lost Treasure

Many people waste their time after Iftar although that if you read just one part of the Qur’an you will recite the whole Qur’an during the month. What prevents you from doing that? Is it a comic program? Or an interview with an artist?

PROJECT (4): What are you waiting for? (Repentance Knights)

Promise Allah ( the Almighty) in Ramadan to repent every day from a certain sin and never perpetrate it again. On the first day, give up smoking, on the second give up forbidden mingling with other gender; on the third, stop listening to forbidden songs; on the fifth, clean your mobile and hard disk from anything that can cause Allah’s wrath, etc. (To do this, you should avoid anything forbidden in the two monitors during Ramadan: Internet and TV)

However, because Ramadan have passed quickly, if you still didn’t repent, it’s your chance now before it ends.

Repent, its your time! It’s your time to erase your sins, to get closer to Allah, to do more for your after life than this life. Don’t waste those days… those days that will pass quickly and we never know if we will live until next Ramadan.

Mama…

Nasheed by Sami Yusuf 
video & lyrics
 

Blessed is your face
Blessed is your name
My beloved
Blessed is your smile
Which makes my soul want to fly
My beloved
All the nights
And all the times
That you cared for me
But I never realised it
And now its too late
Forgive me

Now Im alone filled with so much shame
For all the years I caused you pain
If only I could sleep in your arms again
Mother Im lost without you 

You were the sun that brightened my day
Now whos going to wipe my tears away
If only I knew what I know today
Mother Im lost without you 

Arabic part – English translation:

Mother… Mother… O my mother
How I long to see O mother
Your mother, Your mother, Your mother
Is the saying of your Prophet
In my heart, in my dreams
You are always with me mother

You went and left me
O light of my eyes
O comfort of my nights
You went and left me
Who, other than you, will embrace me?
Who, other than you, will cover me?
Who, other than you, will guard over me?
Your pardon mother, forgive me

May Allah forgive all of our mothers, make them stronger and give them happiness and ease in this life and in the next life in Jannah insha Allah.

May He help us to love them, and to be patient with them, and to be compassionate with them, to help them when they need it, when they ask for help or when they don’t, to be dutiful sons and daughters to them, and to love them unconditionally.

Get up and hug your mom right now. If you can’t, call her. If she has already passed away, make du’aa that Allah forgives her and forgives you insha Allah and unites both of you (and us) in Paradise, with all the mothers of the Ummah.

love her . . before its too late!
