Only beauty in Islam

True meaning to Islam…Not from the media

Reminder

Alhamdulillah, All praise is due to Allah and only He, All worship that we do should only be to the One who is Allah. Alhamdulillah All praise is to Allah for giving us the littlest things though many of us are not grateful for it, Allah as given us so much, sight, hearing, voices, parts of the body, we have so much but are we grateful?

We look to a blind person, do they complain that they can’t see? No
We look to a deaf person, do they complain that they can’t hear? No
They are grateful for what they have, but many times do we moan & complain even about the little of things? at least every day.

While I was away from the forum, I had an up and down life, my health was up and down but Alhamdulillah I’m better inshaAllah.

We look to Allah for help and guidance, only He can give you what you seek, our days alive are numbered, and everyday if you are not thinking about death, then you should start. Are we ready to leave? what would many of us be more worried about when we leave? Our families? Our wealth? Our Fortunes? Everything we have worked for? Or what will happen in the next life?

SubhanAllah this life is a test and I dont care how many times I remind myself, and my brothers and sisters, even the non-believers, death is just the beginning, you read that again and again, and you wonder what does it mean? how can death be the beginning?

Quote:
Narrated By Ibn ‘Umar from his father: The Prophet said, “The deceased is tortured in his grave for the wailing done over him.”

Many things will happen from the grave, for a believer and a non-believer there is a Hadith that explains what will happen in the grave.

Quote:
Narrated By Anas bin Malik: Allah’s Apostle said, “When (Allah’s) slave is put in his grave and his companions return and he even hears their footsteps, two angels come to him and make him sit and ask, ‘What did you use to say about this man (i.e. Muhammad)?’ The faithful Believer will say, ‘I testify that he is Allah’s slave and His Apostle.’ Then they will say to him, ‘Look at your place in the Hell Fire; Allah has given you a place in Paradise instead of it.’ So he will see both his places.” (Qatada said, “We were informed that his grave would be made spacious.” Then Qatada went back to the narration of Anas who said) Whereas a hypocrite or a non-believer will be asked, “What did you use to say about this man.” He will reply, “I do not know; but I used to say what the people used to say.” So they will say to him, “Neither did you know nor did you take the guidance (by reciting the Quran).” Then he will be hit with iron hammers once, that he will send such a cry as everything near to him will hear, except Jinns and human beings.

Its tough to read but this is why we are trying our best to be strong believers, yes there is many hardship for us in our daily life and Allah Sees all, He know what you are going through and remember this is His test to us, Allah will test the ones He loves. Allah doesn’t need anything from us, but we will always need everything from Him.

Dont give up on Allah, for He is the most Merciful and if we make mistakes and repent and do our best to not give up He will forgive us

Quote:
Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, said: I live in the thought of My servant and I am with him as he remembers Me. (The Holy Prophet) further said: By Allah, Allah is more pleased with the repentance of His servant than what one of you would do on finding the lost camel in the waterless desert. When he draws near Me by the span of his hand. I draw near him by the length of a cubit and when he draws near Me by the length of a cubit. I draw near him by the length of a fathom and when he draws near Me walking I draw close to him hurriedly.

I am only human and I need to remind myself of many things as well, yes this post is mixed up with information, but I cant spoon feed you everything for I dont know everything, brothers and sisters, read the Quran, learn your deen more, inshaAllah make a promise that from now, and during Ramadan and after Ramadan that we will do our best to please Allah, pray on time, fast in the month of Ramadan and other days, give Charity etc.

Quote:
Narrated By Abu Huraira: I heard Allah’s Apostle saying, “The good deeds of any person will not make him enter Paradise.” (i.e., None can enter Paradise through his good deeds.) They (the Prophet’s companions) said, ‘Not even you, O Allah’s Apostle?’ He said, “Not even myself, unless Allah bestows His favor and mercy on me.” So be moderate in your religious deeds and do the deeds that are within your ability: and none of you should wish for death, for if he is a good doer, he may increase his good deeds, and if he is an evil doer, he may repent to Allah.”

Let us help each other with the deen, instead of messing around, for we dont know when our time is up, what would Allah be pleased with? us learning the deen or us messing about in idle talks and not learning the deen?

I love you all for the Sake of Allah.
