Only beauty in Islam

True meaning to Islam…Not from the media

Whats on my mind – Alhamdulillah

Assalaamu Alaikum brothers and sisters in Islam

I like to talk about what is on my mind, inshaAllah, for those who know me, I talk about death alot, from death onwards is more serious than a second of this life if you think about it. Forgive me if I made any mistakes

Today is the day that will change your life, for yesterday you can not change the past and tomorrow may never come. Today is the day in which we as people can learn the deen and please Allah (swt) more.

Today is the day in which you can be grateful to Allah (swt) that you are still alive and able to please Allah (swt) when there are those in the grave right now who can not return back to earth and be a better person.

Its easy to make a mistake my brothers and sisters but are we able to raise our hands to Allah (swt) in dua and ask forgiveness? Sadly many of us including myself lack in this field, we say I’ll ask forgiveness later, tomorrow, next week, when I can be bothered! SubhanAllah, we don’t know if we will be alive later or tomorrow for only Allah (swt) will command the angel of Death to take our souls when the time comes and that is it for your temporary life.

There are many talks, many books about death, many of us listening to me know what death is about, but we don’t take death seriously, this is the start of everything that will happen to you in the next life, the grave, the Day of Judgement, the moment Allah (swt) tells you where you are going…it is all real, no lies, no fantasy, only truth and reality and second by second our time is coming up, that is how quick it is reaching us, second by second

Once the Prophet led Ishaa prayer during the last days of his life and after finishing the prayer he said: “Do you realize the importance of this night?” Nobody present on the surface of the earth tonight will be living after the completion of one hundred years from this night.” Bukhari

This is why I started off with today is the day that will change your life, for yesterday you can not change the past and tomorrow may never come. This inshaAllah will wake myself up first to become a better Muslim and then I hope that whomever reads or listens to this will wake up to, May Allah (swt) open our hearts to the true meaning of Islam and make us act upon and follow the true meaning of Islam.

Alhamdulillah we are Muslims, but this is no promise of Jannah, do we want to reach Jannah? Then there are rules we have to follow and that is following the Quran and Sunnah, sounds easy but the Ummah sadly makes life hard for themselves in all ways.

For example the prayer behind the Imam

What is happening during prayer? The Imam is about to prostate and so many Muslims are already prostrating before the Imam even gets to that position!

Prophet Muhammad (saw) led a prayer and after prayer he addressed the people and said “O people I am the Imam, don’t do in ruku ahead of me, nor stand up or do a thing ahead of me. Since I see you from the front and also from behind” then he said “If you too see what I saw, you would have wept more and laughed very little in your life time.” The people asked the Prophet (saw) what he had seen, the Prophet (saw) replied “I saw the Heaven and the Hell”

This is how seriously the smallest of things that we think is ok, but its not.

Another thing which really annoys me, is the lowering the gaze which brothers and sisters take for granted, NO the hadith doesn’t say you can have the first look for free and you are sinned on the second! You are sinned for intentionally looking at the opposite gender, if you looked by mistake for example brothers you were looking at the floor and looked up not knowing the sister is there then look back down and never to look at the sister again, inshaAllah Allah will forgive you for you obeyed what Allah said.

Prophet Muhammad (saw) said “The Adultery of the eyes is the sight to gaze at a forbidden thing, the adultery of the tongue is the talk.”

JazakAllah Khair for reading
