Making the Qur’an the way of your life

“The Qur’an is your life. Honour it, learn it, teach it, love it, read it and memorise as much as you can of it. It will protect you in life,
at death, in the grave, On the day of Judgment, and will intercede to save you from Hell Fire and to elevate you in Jannah.
The reward of the fluent is the peaks of Jannah amongst the noble scribes while those who persevere in learning it although it is foreign and difficult are given twice the reward!”

[A Quote By Yahya Adel Ibrahim]

Power full on behalf of Egypt

O Allah I ask You by Your Beautiful Names and the secret of Your Divine Power to answer my Dua on behalf of my brothers and sisters in Egypt.

O Allah the hidden enemies are many but You are always Present.
O Allah who is there for the weak and oppressed but You?
Who can assist the injured and forgotten but You?
Who can protect the weak and imprisoned but You?

O Allah return Security to the streets of Egypt.
O Allah remove the fitnah and hate from the hearts of the population.
O Allah I ask You to send them Your Assistance and Protect them from those who seek them Harm from inside and outside Egypt.

O Allah let there be comfort after hardship, peace after dissension, calm after turmoil and rest after toil.
O Allah guide all to that which pleases You.
O Allah Guide the hearts of the Army to pity them and change their hearts to mercy.
O Allah break in two those who continue harm,maiming, orphaning, destroying and murdering.
Ya Hayy Yaa Qayyum Ya Awaal yaa Aakhir! Destroy those who gather against the weak and vulnerable.
Ya Rahmaan Ya Raheem Shelter the weak and grant mercy to the deceased and provide patience and sustenance for the bereaved.

The Prophet Muhammad’s (peace be upon him) Du’aa when he left Taif:-
“O Allah! I complain to You of my weakness, my scarcity of resources and the humiliation I have been subjected to by the people. O Most Merciful of those who are merciful. O Lord of the weak and my Lord too. To whom have you entrusted me? To a distant person who receives me with hostility? Or to an enemy to whom you have granted authority over my affair? So long as You are not angry with me, I do not care. Your favor is of a more expansive relief to me. I seek refuge in the light of Your Face by which all darkness is dispelled and every affair of this world and the next is set right, lest Your anger or Your displeasure descends upon me. I desire Your pleasure and satisfaction until You are pleased. There is no power and no might except by You.” Ameen ya rab’bul a’lameen.

Always say AMEEN to supplication.
The Angels say, ‘Ameen’ to the Dua of those, who pray for their absent fellow Muslim.

Mauritius: let us take time to relax, smile and be positive

Mauritius is well-known to be a place of exceptional beauty, peace, calmness and relaxation. We are thankful to Almighty Allah to provide us with such bounties and blessings.

In order to show gratefulness to all the numerous gifts granted freely to us, we need to relax, meditate and reflect about all the things that we have, instead of focusing on what we don’t. Isn’t?

All of us have the capacity and the ability to make our lives peaceful and to help our families, friends and colleagues to live happily on earth.

How?

1. Everyday, take at least 5 mns of your time to full dedication of silence

2. And every evening, make your bath a moment of pleasure. Relax and enjoy this time

3. Then enjoy the food you eat. Instead of sitting in front of the television and not knowing what you are swallowing, take your it to thank Allah for the food He gave you….

4. Watch some images, pictures that bring peace to your mind.

5. Learn to admire nature

6. Before going to bed, take another 5 mns to meditate …..

“Little by little, your heart will find solace and the thousands of veil that used to seal your

heart and lock your reasoning will be removed step by step until you become aware of life

and its secrets”.  sister Ammaara

Celebrating marriage in Mauritius – beautiful

relaxation forms part of our life

relaxation forms part of our life

Are you interested to be a Muslim?

Dawah in Mauritius

Islam is NOT a sect. It does not belong to a specific category or group of individuals.

Islam is universal because it is a way of life. Islam has been designed by a universal creator for all human beings

There is no distinction of race, gender, skin colour, weight, country

of origin

this is the uniqueness of Islam. It is free from all injustices and free from all biases

Well, since now, you have only heard what the media told you about islam. Isn’t it?

Or you have heard some fanatics discuss about islam?

Or you have heard a few things about islam which you don’t fully understand or have doubts upon some issues?

Well, if you say you are intelligent, wise and just, please take time to ask before you criticise

It is unjust to make quick judgement about people

May God the Almighty open our hearts towards justice, fairness, love and affection for all our fellow brothers and sisters in the world.

And remember, we are all from Adam and Eve

girls with quran

Let us try to ask ourselves some important questions?

1. Who created us?

2. why have we been created?

3. What is the purpose of this life?

4. Why do we have to die?

5. What happen to us when we die?

6. Where do our loved ones go when their souls leave their bodies?

7. Do I have a chance to meet my dead loved ones one day?

8. Who can explain to me why some people are good and others are bad?

9. What is the difference between destiny and reincarnation? Why do muslims reject reincarnation?

10. Is Jesus God? or, do you think because he did not have a father….?

11. Why do muslims call God, Allah?

12. Is there a life after death?

13. I am miserable and unhappy. is there a chance for me to hope for a better life?

14. Islam means peace and submission to one God. so, doesn’t Islam shun all fanatical and bias principles?

15. Why do we insist upon an invisible God without any images whatsoever? Who can pretend to have seen God?

16. why are pictures of living things not allowed in the house?

17. Do you know what are the things that you do which prevent angels from coming in your house?

18. If angels do not visit your house, will you feel peace in your house?

children quran 2

If you think you can answer all these questions, then your knowledge about this life is meaningful.

“Remember, we are all seekers of truth but we need to have enough courage to accept

the truth after having found it.”  – Ammaara-Uddeen

 

 

A sincere appeal to our brothers and sisters from Egypt

The following words are from a sincere revert sister: Aisha Hamidon

 

My dear brothers and sisters in Egypt ~ Please take a minute and open your minds and hearts to what I need to say. Yes, I’m still a baby in Islam (a revert) and not so old yet (lacking wisdom), weak in Arabic (but loves the Quran), but please listen because there is something I do know 100% sure!

The solution to the problems in Egypt is Tawheed. You must worship Allah alone – not Egypt, or Egyptian culture, or money, or fame, or music, or the military, or the flag, or your families, or a scholar. ALLAH! This means rejecting anything in the culture, in Egypt, in your family that competes with or takes precedence over ALLAH, including your kufr constitution, including the Muslim Brotherhood, including Morsi, Sissi, and whomever.

Please, you must clear your minds of all thoughts of nationalism and Egyptian patriotism. It’s evil, full of shirk, and will destroy your imaan. Get rid of those kufr flags and symbols. Open your heart to Allah’s Law, the Shariah Law. Yes, there’s been a lot of lies and propaganda spread about it. You may not even understand it for sure. I was once like that. I was raised in America in kufr, to parents who were upper middle-class, and brainwashed into that culture. If I could leave those lies and shirk and propaganda, so can you!

Egypt – a moving daily scene!!!

I have chosen this “story” telling in order for each of us to ponder how life is short and how many people have chosen to oppress others without realising that they will have to give account of their actions and stand in front of Allah Azzawajal on the day of Judgement

These are the words of sister Asmaa Hussein. Her husband was shot dead. a very moving moment and we pray for all our brothers and sisters who are suffering around the world. 

Amr Kassem 1987-2013

In The Name Of ALLAH, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful…

“Think not of those who are killed in the Way of ALLAH as dead. Nay, they are alive, with their Lord, and they have provision. They rejoice in what Allah has bestowed upon them of His Bounty and rejoice for the sake of those who have not yet joined them, but are left behind (not yet martyred) that on them no fear shall come, nor shall they grieve. They rejoice in a Grace and a Bounty from ALLAH, and that ALLAH will not waste the reward of the believers.”

-[Al-Qura’an, Surah, Ale Imran; 169-171]!

My husband, Amr Mohamed Kassem who was 26 years old, returned to his Lord on Friday after Al-Asr. He was shot through his chin and the bullet exited the back of his neck. He was at a protest in Alexandria, calling for justice for all those who had been killed mercilessly by the army in the previous days and weeks all over Egypt.

Yesterday morning I went to the morgue at a nearby hospital in Alexandria to see Amr before he would be washed and buried in the next few hours. When I arrived, there were many people waiting outside the doors to see their own family members as many people were killed the same day as Amr. Some of Amr’s friends and relatives were there, too. After waiting for a while, I entered the room where his body was lying on a table, covered by a long blanket. I stood beside him and uncovered his face, and there he was, my love, lying there cold even though I had seen him strong and happy and smiling less than 24 hours before that moment. I stroked his beard, part of it was still soft, but part of it felt hard because of the dried up blood. His nose was bloodied and he had a cut beside his eye but he was beautiful, even in death – silent as though sleeping. I touched his lips and his cheeks, they were cold.

I stood there for some time looking at his face, feeling as though my heart was being repeatedly run over by a truck. I refused to cry loudly but tears were streaming down my cheeks, and I told him “I love you Amr, I know that you always wanted to die for the sake of ALLAH, and you got what you always hoped for in sha Allah, and I’m so proud of you. Ya ALLAH forgive his sins and accept him as a shaheed and reunite me with him in the hereafter. Ya ALLAH make me patient in knowing that it was his appointed time and that, by Your will and Grace, he is alive with his You as a shaheed.” I didn’t leave him until I was ready, I’m not even sure how long I was standing there. At the end, I kissed his cheek and told him that I would see him later in sha Allah, then covered his face and left the room.

The janaza was after Al-Asr, there were hundreds of people there – his friends, his colleagues from school, extended family. He was a very beloved person to many. There was no dry eye, but everyone was speaking only good words and saying Allhumdulillah that ALLAH took him in the best way anyone can die in this world. We prayed on him, and I went outside to see a crowd of hundreds of men carrying his shrouded body towards the cemetery. The women didn’t follow, we were waiting until he was buried to go to his grave and make Dua’a. After some time, his mother and I and some female relatives walked towards to cemetery and were making our way to where he was. Suddenly I notice all the men around me yelling for us to go out the side door, to run. I didn’t understand what was happening but I started hearing loud bangs behind me, rocks being thrown at us and all the men telling the women to run. So I ran and ran without looking behind me, I was hit on my cheek by a large rock while I was running, but Allhumdulillah, some of Amr’s friends saw me and told me to run ahead of them so they could be behind me and make sure nothing happened to me. The people who attacked us were thugs who had heard there was an “ikhwani” funeral (although my husband was not from the ikhwan, he was just a religious man who believed in something called right and wrong). Many people were injured, some with stab wounds, but as far as I know, there were no casualties Allhumdulillah.

Even in death, Amr’s enemies hated him and all those around him! But their hate means nothing to me, after all if an enemy of God hates you, then that is a sign that you are, God-willing) on the right path.

Dear friends, my heart aches in a way I never knew a heart could ache. I miss him whenever I am awake and dream about him when I’m asleep. He was the best kind of husband a woman could ever hope for, kind, generous, soft and loving, but also strong and brave. His clothes are still hung up on the hooks in our room, as though he’s going to walk through the door and change into his pajamas before he sleeps. His friend gave me Amr’s wallet and cell phone at the janaza, but his wedding band was missing, we still don’t know where it is…I wish that I had it.

But through all this, I can’t say anything except……

Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un (إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعونَ)
……. and continue to make Dua’a for him. I refuse to dishonor him or myself by asking God “why” he took him or thinking “if only he hadn’t gone to the protest on Friday, he would be alive.” No, it was Amr’s time to return to ALLAH, I know that beyond a shadow of a doubt. And although I wish I had more time with him in the dunya, I sincerely look forward to reuniting with him and being his wife, if God allows me, in paradise. In jannah time does not end, there is no fear of being separated from your loved ones. I believe with every inch of my that our love was truly a love that can last from this world to the next.

Ya ALLAH, You reunited Musa’s (a.s) mother with him after she put him in the river, ya ALLAH You reunited Yaqoub (a.s) with his beloved son Yusuf (a.s) after many years of painful separation. Ya ALLAH You are the Only One who can reunite me with my beloved in the hereafter, so ALLAH I ask you to not prevent me from being with him again.

Last night after we came home, we received a call from a friend of a relative – someone who had witnessed first hand what happened to Amr after he was shot. She told us that he didn’t die right away, he was alive for a few moments. His left hand was holding his chin where the bullet had entered, and his right index finger went up, and he said clearly …..

أشهدُ أنْ لا إلهَ إلاَّ الله

وأشهدُ أنَّ محمّدًا رسولُ الله

(ASHHADU ALLA ILAHA ILLALLAH, WA ASHHADU ANNA MUHAMMADAR-RASULULLAH)

….. and he had a huge smile on his face, as though it was his wedding day. When I heard this, I couldn’t help but cry that ALLAH had honored me just by letting me know this wonderful person and allowing me to have his child.

My friends, your words of encouragement have not gone unnoticed. I have nothing but love and respect for you all, and I know now so much more than before that as Muslims, although we have many faults in our community, when we come together we are truly a force to be reckoned with. Your support and love and Dua’a have touched me greatly. I will undoubtedly need your continued Dua’a and support when I return to Canada in sha Allah.

I ask ALLAH to let me never stray from His path, for my own sake and my daughter’s, and also for Amr’s sake – to honor him in the way that ALLAH chose for him to die.

Ya Habibi ya Amr. Ya Habibi ya Amr. Ya Habibi ya Amr. I hope that right now your soul is in a green bird, and you are flying through Jannah, eating and drinking from its provisions and are close to the throne of ALLAH, where you will never shed another tear or ever feel any sense of loss or suffering. You are my love in this world and the next in sha Allah, you are in my heart always, you are in my prayers always.

Some common excuses for hypocrites for not praying

Common Excuses For Not Praying

1. No time (work, study, busy, etc): Pure and simple deception. surely i f you give prayers a priority in your life, Allah will bless your time and make you more effective, efficient and successful.

2. My heart is clean.

Many people unconsciously or ignorantly say this. How can you judge yourself? will you judge yourself on the day of Qiyamah? Allah judges whose hearts are clean, and you should know that hearts get cleaner and cleaner while praying!!!

 

3. Family problem. Because of my family, I cannot pray.My spouse does not like when i go to the masjid.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “There is no obedience to anyone in disobedience to Allah.” You will be judged alone.

4. My work prevents me from praying

You need first to replace your prayer and supplicate Allah to ease your way. or else, look for a job which allows you to pray even if the salary is less.

5. I sin too much. when i will stop them, then i will pray.

We are all sinners but our prayers are a protection for us. Pray and your prayers will prevent you from committing these sins.   You are sinning because you are not praying.

Contemplate over this hadith, “If they knew the merits of the ‘Isha and Fajr prayers, they would come to them (in the mosque) even if they had to crawl.”

 

6. A young man said: i wish i could pray but i hate doing wudhu!!!

Subhan Allah this is the trick of shaytan and are you not ashamed to utter these words?

Stop the whispers of shaytan and ask Allah for help!!!

7. I pray during the month of Ramadan. this is enough!!!

Well, did revelation come to you that swalaat should be done only during Ramadan?

May Allah help us and remove the veil of darknesses on our eyes and hearts. May Allah guide us towards the right path and protect us against the accursed shaytan. verily he is an avowed enemy for us!!!
