Ease promised twice!….

Asalamu’alaykum dear readers,

 

There are times, days and some months and years that we all go thru in life experiencing great hardships, unease and discomfort. However, during those moments of great hardship and sadness we forget ourself whilst the problem engulfs every piece of us…but then something amazing happens to a believer. The amazing realization that Allah promises us many a thing..but the most of all He promised us during these testing times…EASE! Yes you read right…He, Allah Ta’Alla promised us ease not once but twice.

فَإِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا (94:5

 

إِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا (94:6

 

Thus with this promise we break from the shackles of worry, discomfort, sadness, loss, wound, disappointment and whatever else is eating away our mind, body and soul.

For verily we read these verses more often but we never reflect on the beauty hidden between these verses.

And so I said to my soul; my sufferings became easier because my Lord promised me ease, not once but twice! 🙏💕

 

May Allah grant us all ease, ameen

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Don’t hurt me…

Asalamu’Alaykum

“When a glass is broken, the sound of breaking disappears immediately whereas the glass pieces are scattered over the ground hurting whoever walks over it”.

Similarly, “when you say something that hurts people’s emotions and feelings, the voice disappears immediately but the heart remains in pain for long.”

Therefore, don’t say anything except good and remember always the nine advises and prohibitions that Allah Almighty gave us in Suratul Hujurat (The Sura of Islamic manners) before you say something to anyone:
1.-فتبينوا:
“Fa Tabayyanu”: Investigate: when you receive an information, lest you harm people out of ignorance.

2.-فأصلحوا:
“Fa Aslihu”: Make settlement: between your brothers as believers are brothers.

3.-وأقسطوا:
“Wa Aqsitu”: Act justly: whenever there is a dispute try for settlement and act justly among both parties as Allah loves those who act justly.

4.-لا يسخر:
“La Yaskhar”: Don’t ridicule people, perhaps they may be better than you to Allah.

5.-ولا تلمزوا:
“Wa La Talmizu”: Don’t insult one another.

6.-ولا تنابزوا:
“Wa La Tanabazu”: Don’t call each other with offensive nicknames.

7.-اجتنبو كثيرا من الظن:
“Ijtanibu Kathiiran min Aldhan”: Avoid negative assumptions, indeed some of the assumptions are sins.

8.-ولا تجسسوا:
“Wa La Tajassasu”: Don’t spy on each other.

9.-ولا يغتب بعضكم بعضا:
“Wa La Yaghtab”: Don’t backbite each other. Its a major sin equivalent to eating your dead brother’s flesh.

Lastly Allah said in the Qur’an “Remind, for the reminder benefits believers”.

*May Allah continue to Bless and Guide us in all our affairs*.

My Teacher!

Assalamu’alaykum,

Please have a read of the following and we hope you can all take advantage of what technology and internet has to offer to us in this day and age.

I found this great teacher on Youtube who recites the Quran with Tajweed and is slow enough for ANYONE to learn quran. I literally mean anyone, because I experimented this with my 3 year old, I sat her down and said there’s a quran teacher who would like to teach her Quran..she was excited. I turned it on and I said pay attention recite with him, he will talk to you. She believed me 100%, but then why not, the sheikh is so cool he talks to the audience, so no wonder why she felt it personal. She now calls him ‘My Teacher’, so every morning after I teach her (because this is our duty as parents) I give her 10 minutes with ‘her teacher’ to revise what she has learnt and go over anything difficult. I have found the youtube videos to be excellent at teaching her so I will continue using it. I pray everyone benefits from his videos. Its a blessing what we have available nowadays-  Alhamdulillah!
