Remember this?

Assalamu’alaykum dear readers,

recall this time last year, we were all complaining how quick Ramadan left us and vowed to make the coming Ramadan even better?

Well now is the time…..forget the excuses, forget the extra things you are currently so engrossed in, forget the eating like there’s no tomorrow….and yes I know very well it’s almost May and the sun is shining so beautiful all you wanna do is laze around drinking cold mango lassi or whatever tinkles your fancy!

But hold up..honestly hold on! We don’t get many opportunities to outdo whatever good bad and ugly we did the year before….so why waste time. I’m not saying it’s ramadan already. But what I am saying is…its Rajab!

This is like the preparation month before the real deal.

Rajab is your month and it’s my month…why? Because we can practice what we wanna rid of and get good and boost our energy before Ramadan. Did you know, it takes 90 days for something to become habitual. Yes 90 days, 3 months. Thus, Rajab is that, a few days less but hey better to start than no starting at all.

Come on people lets get working, now is the time to cut back, remove and eradicate things you don’t want to do or have during Ramadan.

Rajab and Shabaan are forerunners to Ramadan and these two friends if used wisely, will help us to be more acquainted with one of the highlights of this year.

Abu Bakr Al-Warraq Al-Balkhiyyu said: Rajab is the month of planting seeds. Shabaan is the month of irrigation and Ramadhan is the month of harvest.[6] And when the salaf used to worship more in Rajab and Shaban, they would taste the sweetness of worship such that they thought they were in Ramadan. So they yearned for it more and asked Allah to give them life long enough to meet it once again. Allahumma Balighnaa Ramadhan! (O Allah, let us reach Ramadan!)

Lastly, remember Ramadan ain’t about food and drink, this year we will be fasting during the heat of June, so prepare your spirituality and steadfastness as they will be key to saving you…more than food and drink.

We honestly don’t pay attention to what our parents have sacrificed for us..and we don’t appreciate their existent, its an insult the way we take care of them and then we pray for a good children when we ourselves are lacking! May Allah help us see through our treatment to our parents and wake us up before they are gone. Ameen.

Our investments….

Asalamu’alaykum,

Children are not only the most amazing creation but also the biggest investment parents could have. This is the biggest investment for their own and your akhira. They bring with them so much joy and happiness as well as a sharp character and brain, that if one was to mould that well and in accordance to Islam they would be bagging a good investment.

 

Stop the insult…

Assalamu’alaykum,

Why are we so quick to insult others? It doesn’t make sense, do we get a brownie point for the amount of negativity we gear towards others?! Honestly, doesn’t it make you wonder? Alhamdulillah for Islam, a religion so balanced it doesn’t take such acts lightly. Why because someone’s integrity, character and their being is being mocked about…and 99% of the time you insult in a state of anger so what your going throw is nothing but oversized negativity, mish mash analysis and most definitely wrong statements!

So before you insult remember this…

We pray you are all well dear readers,

There’s been an itchy topic that I have been meaning to post….its the talk of time. Subhnallah! It really amazes me how we don’t really have much time dedicated to the worship of Allah yet every one of us if not in the majority is hooked on one type of social media or another..and its kind of getting out of hand, because our phones are the first thing we embrace and the last thing we part with. What’s happening? What is this new phenomena? Everyone is doing it, elders, middle aged, youngsters, children….everyone is looking down. People are missing live actions due to their head being suspended downwards glued to their phones. We all do it, some to a minor and some to major degrees. However, not all activities on the phone is bad for us, I mean take a knife for example good can come out if or bad, it depends what you intend to use it for.

Lets utilise these devices we are privileged to have in our time and generate deeds using it. I don’t have to spell it out, if we can generate garbage from them in the form of forwarding useless comments or talks….good can come out if you reverse the thoughts and actions.

Over and out readers!

 

Prevention is the best remedy

Assalamu’alaykum

prevention

Dear Readers, don’t you sometimes think how conniving and misleading shaytaan is when he tries to make us delay the very thing that would make us better people…istighfar (forgiveness). At every given opportunity where your nafs (soul)tells you to correct a problem now, one finds themselves in a complete delayed state almost allowing ourselves to think that the next second, minute or hour is guaranteed! ..

Al-Hasan once said, “O son of Adam, to abstain from a sin is easier for you than curing it later on through repentance. How can you be sure that you will not commit a deed so grave in its wickedness that the door of repentance will be closed before you?”
