When you love someone…

You know you love someone loads when you can’t see them in pain.

You can’t see them in physical, emotional or spiritual pain.

And it’s the love that makes you want to help them out of it…but we can only help those who want to be helped.

Prophet peace be upon him loved us dearly. We can only get a taste of what he might have felt when we feel the same for others around, whom we want to counsel and advise but they still want to go the other way. We can only make dua. Indeed it is only Allah who guides. Prophet peace be upon him didn’t give up on Khalid ra, guess we shouldn’t give up on others either and should continuously make dua, only Allah knows we don’t.

I can not imagine Prophet’s peace be upon him pain at Abu Talib’s rejection of faith. It is truly Allah who guides and Allah is All Wise and All knowing.

Ya Allah guide those who have strayed from your way and do not let them deviate even for a blink of an eye. Ameen.

Make up and Modesty

بِسْم الله الرحمن الرحيم

For those Muslims who think it is Halal to wear make up in public in full view of non-Mahrams (men who are not family), please read the make up labels.

Or have a look at this article in HuffPost.

If one is dressing up for an all girl’s event or for family then Allah is beautiful and likes beauty, it is nice to dress up. But if you are adorning your face and going out in public or posting your pictures online with public settings then you really can’t run away from reality. All opinions aside, do you really believe it’s ok for you to be in full view of non-Mahrams with make up on, however little it is?

If you are someone who’s struggling to stay makeup free when in public or acknowledge that modesty and makeup do not go together and still wear makeup then that’s one thing. But to think that one can be modest with make up on when in public and it is perfectly halal for you to be in makeup in public, you really need to look at the reality of things.

May Allah grant us understanding. Ameen

Why would Dajjal (Anti Christ) melt seeing Isa (Jesus) peace be upon him?

بِسْم الله الرحمن الرحيم

“…….,Certainly, the time of prayer shall come and then Jesus (peace be upon him) son of Mary would descend and would lead them. When the enemy of Allah would see him, it would (disappear) just as the salt dissolves itself in water and if he (Jesus) were not to confront them (Anti Christ and it army) at all, even then it (Dajjal) would dissolve completely……..”[Sahih Muslim]

SubhanAllah! I was having chat with someone on why no one but Jesus peace be upon him will be able to fight the Dajjal, and it made me realize that Dajjal (Anti Christ) is the false Messiah and Isa ( Jesus) peace be upon him is the true Messiah. Whenever there is an encounter between truth and falsehood, falsehood disappears just like salt disappears in water! (And Allah knows best)

Allah says, meaning of which “81 )   And say, “Truth has come, and falsehood has departed. Indeed is falsehood, [by nature], ever bound to depart.” (Surah Al-Isra)

We should always cling to truth, speak it, live it. Even if you are the only one on truth, stick to it because Allah establishes truth and removes falsehood. Falsehood by nature is weak!

To live by truth we must learn the truest of speech, the book of Allah, Al-Quran. Make a little effort everyday to learn and share something from Quran.

Also, whether it’s giving honest reviews, recommendations, beliefs and practices, adhere to what is true.

May Allah raise us among the Siddiqeen ( the truthful ones) . Ameen.

Give roads it’s right! Something to think about….

Narrated Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri:

The Prophet (ﷺ) said, ‘Beware! Avoid sitting on the roads.” They (the people) said, “O Allah s Apostle! We can’t help sitting (on the roads) as these are (our places) here we have talks.” The Prophet (ﷺ) said, ‘ l f you refuse but to sit, then pay the road its right ‘ They said, “What is the right of the road, O Allah’s Apostle?” He said, ‘Lowering your gaze, refraining from harming others, returning greeting, and enjoining what is good, and forbidding what is evil.

SubhanAllah! We have been commanded to lower our gaze when sitting on roads. How does one justify posting pictures of ladies on the side of roads? Even in a Hijab? On digital billboards? On websites?

Also, don’t throw trash on roads. This is harming others. Don’t spy, don’t go crazy commenting on someone else and saying whatever comes to your mind to hurt the other person while commenting online.

Side note: Men are not obliged to wear khimar/Hijab or not obliged to not ‘make a display’. The women are, however, obliged to not ‘make a display of themselves’, so they shouldn’t be posting pictures publicly even in a hijab unnecessarily.
