Say no to falsehood

We live in a world where falsehood has been termed as part of the culture whereas this is not the case. But this culture in Islam is criticized by Allah and His Messenger. We should not tell lies my brothers and sisters. Do not follow what people do, follow the greatest and noblest of man, Prophet Muhammad ﷺ

Reminder

Asalam alaykum

Did you ever stop for a while and asked yourself what is going to happen to you the 1st night in your grave?
Think about the day people will carry you to your grave and your families crying.
Think about the moment you are put in your grave. 
Just imagine yourself in your grave down there in that dark hole alone. Too dark, you cry for help but no answer or reply from anybody. Nobody can help you. 
It’s s too narrow, your bones are squashed, you regret all the bad things you did during your life, you regret missing 5 daily prayers, you regret your disrespectful manners towards everyone especially your Parents.

Woman will regret not wearing her Hijab, you regret ignoring the orders of ALLAH, you regret ignoring the knowledge of Islam.
There is no escape route. You will face your punishment for every little things you’ve done.
You are alone in your grave with only your deeds. No money 💰, no jeweleries jewelries 🎁, no connections 📞, nothing but your deeds 💪🏽.
When your grave is shut you feel like screaming while telling everybody by your grave not to go, to stay beside your grave but you can’t be heard they will leave you & go, you will even hear their footsteps and hear them crying as they walk away.
While in this world you thought 💭 you will last forever. You thought you will stay with your friends & families forever. You thought u will have fun forever. You are wrong. 
So, just spend few minute and think about or look through your future and remember your final destination {Grave}….
so spend the whole of your life preparing for it because it must surely come and no one will be spared. 
DEATH is the destroyer of all pleasures. Be wise and be warned! ⚠ 
Foward this to your friends and families, I trust you are not selfish. Let it serve to them as a reminder and warning!!

Asalam alaykum

Treating Relatives

BISMILLAH. Islam gives great importance to the bonds of kinship and rights of relatives. Allah command us in the holy Qur’an to that at least 12 times in different verses. I will mention just a few. Aayah 90 of Surah Nahl says: “Allah enjoins justice, generosity and kind treatment with relatives…” The third thing which has been enjoined is good treatment with one’s relatives. It means that one should not only treat relatives well, share their sorrows and pleasure and help them within lawful limits but should also share one’s wealth with them along with the rights of parents and immediate family. The Prophet (Sallallaahu Alaihi wasallam ) has emphasized this fact in many Traditions. In the light of such Traditions a person owes rights to his parents, his wife, husband, children, brothers,sisters and other relatives in accordance with the nearness of their relationships. Islam is very adamant that every Muslim learns to care about others and their rights. The people that one should take care of the most, after one’s parents, are the relatives. In the hadith, the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is saying: “Those of you who believe in Allah and the hereafter should be kind to their relatives.” (Al-Bukhari and Muslim, 26) and: “Those of you who would like to have more providence and longer lives should be kind to their relatives.”(Al-Bukhari, 5985 & Muslim, 2557). To be continued in shaa Allah. We ask Allah to aid us in our efforts to treat our relatives with kindness and support. Aameen.

Did you know?

When a child sneezes say “Baarak Allahu feek”
Shaykh Saalih al Fawzaan ﻪﻈﻔﺣ ﻪﻠﻟﺍ said:
As for the young (child), if he sneezes it is not said to him: “May Allaah have mercy on you” (yarhamuk Allah) rather he supplicates for him with blessings. Therefore it is said (to the child): “Baarak Allaahu Feek” (May Allaah bless you) because a young child sneezed in the company of the Prophet ﻰﻠﺻ ﻪﻠﻟﺍ ﻪﻴﻠﻋ ﻢﻠﺳﻭ and he said: “Baarak Allaahu Feek”.
As collected by Al Hafidh As Salafee
And he (Muhammad ﻰﻠﺻ ﻪﻴﻠﻋ ﻪﻠﻟﺍ ﻢﻠﺳﻭ ) commanded the young child to praise Allaah whenever he sneezes from the viewpoint of teaching.

Be a thankful servant

Do you know that in some hospitals; OXYGEN is administered at the rate of N/$4,500.00 per hour for adults and N/$3,000.00 per hour for children?
Now; if adults were to be placed on oxygen for a whole day; the bill will be N/$108,000.00. If this is extended to a month; the amount becomes N/$3.24 million. For one year; it will be N/$38.88 million.
The next time we are tempted to think that Allah seems to be unkind to us;( Waiyasu Bilahi) let us remember this: He gives each of us more than N/$3Million monthly benefits of Oxygen without payment. Always be thankful to Allah.
Like now I thank Allah for giving me breath to send this and *I also thank Allah for giving you this time to read this and finally I thank Allah for giving you the opportunity to share this with your friends
Thank you Allah for everything

Praise be to Allah

This ayah taught me:
If Allah Saves you from anything bad, do not say it is because of my Fajr prayer or my charity, or my Adhkaar. But say: “Allah Has Saved me by His Mercy.” 

فَلَمَّا جَاءَ أَمْرُنَا نَجَّيْنَا صَالِحًا وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مَعَهُ بِرَحْمَةٍ مِّنَّا وَمِنْ خِزْيِ يَوْمِئِذٍ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ هُوَ الْقَوِيُّ الْعَزِيزُ                                               

{So when Our command came, We saved Swaleh and those who believed with him, by mercy from Us, and [saved them] from the disgrace of that day. Indeed, it is your Lord who is the Powerful, the Exalted in Might.} Surah Hud, 66.
🌺🍃Have a pleasant day
