Faithful Muslims: Part 3 - A Once United Nation

Salam Barakah to my brothers and sisters in Islam,
On this third entry, there's something I want to discuss among us Muslims. Let's look upon the world we live in today...........Are there more suffering than contribution? Are there more poverty  than affuency? Are there more cures  than illness?

Our Muslims Ummah (society) today may all haven't notice how far Islam has changed over the past 1400 years ago. Once a Golden Age during the reign of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) the khulafā' ar-rāshidūn, the Abbasids, and the Ottoman until the caliphate reign was abolished in 1924.

Can't we think righteously? Why are we blind to the truth? In this modern times, modern Islam, also increases its influence rapidly. Even so, these "Modern" Muslims are more inclined towards the Western Nations, their cultures.
I watched some videos once, about Western tools of propoganda and influences. They easily brainwashed Muslims through the medias, especially television, music, fashion and harmful ways of life. Whether we realise it or not, these satanic powers are mutating into several stages, for example the minds of Muslim women,  who was now more obsessed in stylish fashion rather than keeping their aurah in veils.

I do have not any prejudice against the Western Cultures, but I'm justifying the truth about them! We don't want people of other religions watchs us from every corner, thinking, "Hey, that Muslim is exposing her hair. And it the dyed gives too much of pink colour."

See that? Or, "It's Friday today. Why is that Muslim man not at the mosque like his fellow brethren?" or "Hmph! Why should I convert to Islam when their ways of life is the same as mine?"

We want neither of  them to cross the minds of other people of different religions.


Facing One Qiblah

So, we must all work together to gain back the peace and right we Muslims should all have. After al, even when we are all separated across the globe, aren't we all facing the one qiblah?

I found this poem from a website. It's really beautiful, and I like us all to think about it. Farewell...........

By Imran Ali
This life, full of pain, full of lies, full of death...
We live for desires, 'till the last of our breath...
This life is so tempting, this life full of Fitnah...
And so the path to Jannaah becomes thinner and thinner...
On the Day of Judgement, on that Day of Eternity...
We will walk the path, to reach our serenity...
For the faithful and pious, will be vast and to spare...
However for the evil, will be thin as a hair...
So, what do you have to say...?
"I feel its too hard and I guess its just me...
But there's not enough time in the day, you see..."

"There's work, and school and duties at home...
There's so much going on, that won't leave me alone..."
"And even when I can, I feel so strange...
Most of my friends, well, they've changed..."
"I'm without support, and my faith is depleting...
How can I pray, when I feel so demeaning...?"

"My Brother, my Sister, your so called friends...
Are none of the sort, if they can't make amends..."

"And are they true Muslims, if they cannot share...
Your strive in Imaan, and modesty's care...?"
"You're true friends, brothers and sisters alike...
Are the Ummah of Islam, who share your strife..."
"For they are the caring, who share your struggle...
But Muslims are strong, and strive through the rubble..."

So what does this mean...?
It means we must unite, and never part ways...
For Imaan is the structure, that shelters our days...
Appearances may differ, and so may the lands...
But Islam is our paint, and our brush is Imaan...
We may lose our friends, and we may lose obsessions...
We may lose desires, and materialistic possessions...
But take my hand, and together we'll see...
How we, Brothers and Sisters, form a Unity...

Faithful Muslims: Part 2 - The Revelation

Assalamualaikum again, and good morning to all members of the Earth. On this drizzly morning, I'm gonna tell you about the Noble Qur'an.

Said Allah the Great in Surat Al-Wāqi'ah:

Assuredly, it is a generous Qur’an, in a book kept hidden, which none touches save the purified; a revelation from the Lord of the Worlds. [56:77-80]

We all have known Al-Quran has been revealed towards mankind through our beloved Prophet Muhammad S.A.W, whom had the first revelation through Angel Gabriel from Allah. The Qur'an is a guide for men, for all should believe in its content. This has been passed from generation to generation; on which has not it been changed its content, not all.

Holy Qur'an
It is a reminder, one that teach us the ways of life we have long forgotten. Islam, and its believers Muslims are relying on Allah the Most Gracious. 
The Holy Qur'an contains lessons of the true ways of life such as social, economic, or political or even the histories of previous civilizations of people. However, some people neglects the use of this Holy Qur'an  saying that it doesn't have anything to do with human' affair, such as politics and economics. That is a wrong statement for life, as we are holding on oxygen to breathe in air, we are holding our faith upon this Qur'an.

Without Qur'an there is no thing for us Muslims to guide us (Allah the Preserver is an exceptional) through our struggles on problems of life, as in having no air to breath, we would all suffocate. 

Step 1 - Read (Memorize, if possible) and learn its meanings through tafseer (interpretation).
Step2 - Teach those who can't read.
Step 3 - Remember, Al-Quran is everything about our life, so whatever affair on our daily life, we are yo use it as our invulnerable source.
Step 4 - Courtesy through this Holy Book of Allah
Step 5 - Understand the Unclear by asking Muslims' Scholars

For that, Assalamualaikum, until next time...

Faithful Muslims: Part 1 - Faith in Allah

Assalamualaikum, and good morning to my fellow brothers and sisters in Islam. Since this is my first entry on this blog I joined, I decide to tell about faith. Faith is really important mainly because it involve with our Iman. When I say faith, it means we have a belief and our belief as in Allah (tawakkul 'ala Allah ) As some of us might have learned Tawheed (the Oneness of Allah) Remember my dear friends, disbelief in Allah is marked as Kufr or Kafir. Learning Tawheed will rekindle our Iman, as well as it is compulsary for every muslim to understand its meaning.

Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah’s Apostle said, “Allah has ninety-nine Names, one-hundred less one; and he who memorized them all by heart will enter Paradise.” To count something means to know it by heart.

Also, in the Noble Qur'an:

وَلِلَّهِ الْأَسْمَاءُ الْحُسْنَىٰ فَادْعُوهُ بِهَا وَذَرُوا الَّذِينَ يُلْحِدُونَ فِي أَسْمَائِهِ سَيُجْزَوْنَ مَا كَانُوا يَعْمَلُونَ
And to Allāh belong the best names, so invoke Him by them. And leave [the company of] those who practice deviation concerning His names. They will be recompensed for what they have been doing.

Now we see why Faith is Allah is really important for us to understand and learn thrugh through the concept of Tawheed.

This is the list of Allah's beautiful names their meanings:

I guess I'll stop now in this post. Assalamualaikum......

Twins of Faith

   Saw ads for this event on 2 blogs,and I also remembered KakYong telling me about them.

 I'd really LOVE to go, but I'm not sure I can afford it. Anyway, find out more about the programme from the official  website. You can purchase tickets online there, and you can also get them here.

   These are the speakers who will be giving the talks, insya-Allah. I'm familiar with some of the names, though I've only listened to Abdurraheem Green via online videos. I've heard very good reviews about the others though, so I'm sure it'll be truly beneficial and meaningful.

    The programme line-up could not be more interesting. Just look at the titles of the talks! And none of them are very long either. If you are busy,you can choose which talks you want to go to.

   I'm strongly thinking of going, but I do not know if I can afford it. Ummi & Abuya have given me the green light, so that's good. Now how do I go? There'll be money for the ticket, and I have to find accommodation (free if possible) as well as think of how to transport there. I fervently hope and pray that Allah will show me a way. I'm also looking for a friend to go with.

   There will also be other side programmes such as a Mother's Room, Kids Zone, a Marriage Corner etc. Find out more by clicking on the links or by going to their official website.

   Is anybody going???
