Inni Akhafullah

Rasulullah PBUH once stated that on the Yaumul Akhir, at the Mahsyar..everyone is gathered under the scorching sun,burnt by the unbearable heat.
BUT out of all these humans are 7 class of people, shadowed under Allah's rahmah,when others suffer,they smile..

Included in these 7 is a person, when he is confronted by a seductive woman, he rejects and says INNI AKHAFULLAH Indeed, I fear Allah

Brothers and sisters,this hadith by Rasulullah PBUH means so much to us. No it does not mean that only men are open to opportunities and no it does not mean women like seducing but if we acquire the proper definition it defines the basis of our relationship with our Mighty explains the cure for all our problems involving the heart.

INNI AKHAFULLAH does not mean you fear Allah literally, like the that fear He will send a sudden lightning bolt from the sky, (though na'uzubillah, He can) but it defines the fact that we fear His greatness.
Simply, the clear point is when ever we face anything that comes and invites us to ma'siyyah, to sins, all we need is a mindset stating INNI upholding these words we will feel the humbleness of a tiny being against the Mighty Creator..
how weird that a weak and useless self should be so ignorant and unashamed of acting so proud in His body,while breathing His air,on His land..
so just set in your heart,akhafullah,and InsyaAllah not only will He aid your strength, ur shadowed on the day others suffer..InsyaAllah

There wuz a time when i questioned myself..

"What is life?"

Brothers and sisters, please..denial to the fact that this question also once played in ur minds is too untrue.but Alhamdulillah, i was provided with sufficient answers (i'll explain in another post.really sorry) at that time and i was too small to overthink it. so when today i was questioned..

"Why Allah?"

i sincerely got stuck.i kept thinking it over and over again but answers never came.not that they weren't there,but it was too unexplainable.but again Alhamdulillah i gazed deep enough mentally and spiritually and i saw that it came back to my first question.its about life.about us.

So why not Allah? he created us so perfect, watched us so deep, forever guiding us, blessed us always, became a place to turn to, who knows even the smallest bits in our hearts.
So why not Allah?

Yeah this is faith.a friend of mine said:

"Faith is a hard thing to acquire, achieved only through risks, going down to the depths and the very foundation of religion, pondering upon the meaning of life, searching for purpose, having moments of doubt. And what's even harder; retaining faith."

I agree enough,except that i dont think its that hard..
Doubts?those are the risks.
Foundation?its nothing, as long as we believe and understand life.
Retaining?when we feel that its hard,we are retaining.
Faith in Life?bcoz yeah..ITS HIS STUFF

The road not taken
take B. sumtimes A. nvr C..

What im about to share with you today@tonite is sumthng i thought about for quite a long time (since yesterday?) please sit tight and read..

One day, ur walking, and i dont mean by walking like waddling around, window shopping at Times Square. i mean this proper walking on a road where u count your feel the gentle breeze,the sound of nature.and of course ur alone.then suddenly you look around,and you find yourself lost.and in that utter panic,you forgot how many steps you took,you even forgot why you walked in the first place.
So after crying, shouting for help, dialing unconnectable numbers, what do you do?

A: you retrace your steps.go back, to where you started,ask your friend/family at home why you went out and start again.

B: you take a deep breath, think of the attractions through out your walk,how many steps took you there and how many steps were you mislead from that point onwards.

C: you continue your walk in hoping you find a new path..whereas you dont even know whether that new path leads back to the fact you dont even know whether you'll find one.

My beloved bro's and sis's this is life.
'A' is the choice which you have to make when you are sure you forgot everything, which leaves nothing else but turning back totally to Allah and setting back ur reasons of life.intending to never repeat it again.
'A' is TAUBAH.

'B' is a chance that many of us obtain.we get the opportunity of thinking deeply on our life,so that it keeps us on the right path, but its just a matter of thinking deeply enough..if we keep doin it consistently it'll finally lead us to the proper path.and everytime we get lost, sit for a moment and think about life.

if i told you 'C' is the dumbest thing to do..i bet many of you agree..
but sincerely..'C' is a choice we are always repeating..when we realise of our misguided life.we stop to look at it. but sadly we keep walking further and further away though our hearts question it..
'C' is FASIQ.

May Allah always guide us and aid us in the true PATH..

If you ask me about love...

Allahu Akbar..
this song really touched my heart..
Yes, everything stated in it was too true..but many dont realize.we are blinded by the wealth of this world dream that life feels like too much of a coincidence.we lost our true belief, we lost our true love..

Then when we return, when we realize, when we finally see...

Allah is ALWAYS there, waiting...
We love you Allah..ALLAHU AKBAR

Allahu Akbar…
If you ask me about love
And what i know about it
My answer would be
It’s everything about Allah
The pure love, to our souls
The creator of you and me,the heaven and whole universe
The one that made us whole and free
The guardian of HIS true believers
So when the time is hard
There’s no way to turn
As HE promised HE will always be there
To bless us with HIS love and HIS mercy
Coz, as HE promised HE will always be there
HE’s always watching us, guiding us
And HE knows what’s in all in our heart

So when you lose your way
To Allah you should turn
As HE promised HE will always be there…

HE bring ourselves from the darkness into the light
Subhanallah praise belongs to YOU for everything
Shouldn’t never feel afraid of anything
As long as we follow HIS guidance all the way
Through our short time we have in this life
Soon it all’ll be over
And we’ll be in His heaven and we’ll all be fine

So when the time gets hard
There’s no way to turn
As HE promised He will always be there
To bless us with HIS love and HIS mercy
Coz, as HE promised HE will always be there
HE’s always watching us, guiding us
And HE knows what’s in all in our heart

So when you lose your way
To Allah you should turn
As HE promised HE will always be there…

Allahu Akbar…

And he knows what’s in all in our heart

So when you lose your way
To Allah you should turn
As HE promise HE will always be there…

Allahu Akbar…

At-Taqwa Ha Huna

When Rasulullah PBUH was asked about the meaning of Taqwa,
He said:
"At-taqwa ha huna.."

(Taqwa is here)

And in saying so, he pointed to his chest 3 times.

Umar ibn Khattab (R.A) once asked Ibn Ka’ab (R.A) the definition of taqwa. In reply Ibn Ka’ab asked, “Have you ever had to traverse a thorny path?” Umar replied in the affirmative and Ka’ab continued, “How do you do so?”
Umar said that he would carefully walk through after first having collected all loose and flowing clothing in his hands so nothing gets caught in the thorns hence injuring him. Ka’ab said, “This is the definition of taqwa, to protect oneself from sin through life’s dangerous journey so that one can successfully complete the journey unscathed by sin.”

“It is not taqwa that you turn your faces toward East or West, but it is taqwa to believe in Allah and the Last Day, and the Angels, and the Book and the Messengers, to spend of your substance out of love for Him, for your kin, for orphans, for the needy, for the wayfarer, for those who ask, and for the ransom of slaves; to be steadfast in prayer and practice regular charity; to fulfill the contracts you have made; to be firm and patient, in pain and adversity. Those are the truthful and those are the muttaqun.” [Qur’an 2:177]

Subhanallah, how generous of our beloved prophet, reminding us that no matter what we do, in every aspect of our 'amal we must return back to our heart. It is not the point of knowing that others see us as a muttaqee, but it matters if our heart knows that we are doing it for the sake of taqwa..
Alhamdulillah, my fellow brothers and sisters..that is the basis of taqwa.

When you feel that tingling shake of your heart in prayers, thats TAQWA.

When tears drop, knowing youve done many sins, thats TAQWA.

When you smile alone,eventhough life's too hard, thats TAQWA.

When you look into your heart everytime and see that Allah is there, thats TAQWA

Surah Al' Imran 190-193
"In the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the alteration of night and day, there are signs for people with intelligence: those who remember Allah, standing, sitting and lying on their sides and reflect on the creation of the heaven and the earth:

'Our Lord, you have not created this for nothing'.
Glory be to you!

so safe guard us from the punishment of the fire. Our Lord, those you cast into the fire you have indeed disgrace. The wrongdoers will have no help. Our Lord, we heard a caller calling us to iman. 'have iman in Our Lord!' and we had iman. Our Lord forgive us our wrong actions, erase our bad actions from us and take us back to you with those who are truly good"

I was so far from You, yet to me You were always so close.. I wondered lost in the dark.. I closed my eyes to all the signs you put in my way, I walked every day further and further away from You,
Oh Allah, You brought me back with every breath that i take..Alhamdulillah
(maher zain-thank you Allah)

I was sitting in my room, trying to do somethg, but unable to do anythng. And suddenly i felt sad, i felt lost..i ddnt know what to do. somethg was missing in my heart and it was pulling my nerves. i felt like i wanted to punch the wall, shout my lungs out and cry all at the same time.i lied down and closed my eyes, and took a deep breath.then suddenly i heard the Adzan and there i realised that all this while i was missing Allah in my heart..
Thank You Allah for always being there
