Ever since I begun my first step in seeking knowledge about Islam, I can truly tell you that once you open your heart to learn about Islam you will fall in love with your religion, your heart will feel at peace as though it has returned home. This is why we are ordered in the Quran to read, these are the first words that the beloved Prophet Mohammed PBUH was ordered to say by Angel Gabriel RA.

On that note, here is video series that I have been watching that has helped boost my iman and fall in love even more with my our beautiful religion. ALHAMDULLILAH for Islam :)

May my heart be filled with the love that Talaha and Zubayr RA had for the Prophet Mohammed PBUH. 

"Trials will not cease afflicting the believing man and the believing woman in their self, children, and wealth, until they meet God without having any sin."

"If God wants to do good to somebody, He afflicts him with trials."

Anonymous asked: Even if İ am praying and doing all ibada, there is a constant black hole in my soul which İ cannot fill, İ dont know what to do

franksonnetti:

We’re very generic Muslims these days. What I mean by this is that we look for what’s the best thing when it comes to worldly things; we have a phone but if something newer comes out we want that or we have clothes and something newer comes out so we want that etc. When it comes to the deen we’re satisfied with the same box standard, generic version of ibaadah not trying to change anything yet still expecting to feel illuminated.

To get the most out of our ibaadah we need to be striving outside of it in order to gain more from it. Why is it that people pray salah, recite Qur’an, go to hajj and umrah yet feel nothing from it all? There’s no effort outside of the ibaadah to remember Allah in our hearts so how much are we really going to remember Allah in our ibaadah as opposed to how much we’ll remember the world? It’s no surprise that our lives remain empty and dark.
You know what, how can I say it better than Shaykh Zulfiqar (Hafizahullah), have a listen to this;

And also listen to his student Shaykh Mufti Kamaluddin (Hafizahullah) here;

Secret of Piety

scattredthoughts:

Someone asked Hassan Al Basri: “What is the secret of your piety?”

He replied; I understood 4 things:

1. I understood my rizq cannot be taken by anyone so my heart is contended.
2. I understood no one can do my actions. (worship) so I started doing them myself.
3. I understood Allah is watching me, so I felt shame to do wrong.
4. I understood death is waiting for me so I started to prepare for my meeting with Allah Ta’ala.

May Allah grant us this understanding. (Ameen)

Wow.

The Water Project ›

thishijabisays:

Two years ago, you all helped me raise $5,051 for a water campaign. Today, that well has been built in a village in Cambodia and it will forever be a source of not only clean water, but happiness - to over 110 families. 

Two years later, I introduce you to the Sahel region in West Africa. Where, during the hotter part of the year, the average temperature in the is more than 110 degrees. 

For women there, not having access to clean water means hours of painful and exhausting work. Many of them walk miles each day just to reach the 100-year-old hole in the ground where they collect water. And they make that trip four or five times. Not only is that water contaminated and dirt-colored, but it has to be pulled up by hand, one bucket at a time. Receiving the water is often very dangerous for the women who retrieve it. Severe burns, cuts, and even falling into water holes are just a few of the things women of the Sahel region have to face. 

But, with your help, we can change all of that! The best part is, Charity: Water will match any donation given - so it will be easier to reach our goal this time around!

We can bring solar powered pumps into communities and pipe water to tap stands right next to these women’s homes. We can bring time, energy and a better future to 100,000 people in Mali and Niger.

Just like last time - 100% of everything we raise will directly fund water projects. And when those projects are finished, charity: water will send us proof in pictures and GPS coordinates, so we can see the actual people and communities we impacted.

Before I judge anyone for their actions, I must humble myself and remember I have my own sins to repent for.

When Allah blesses you financially, don’t raise your standard of living, rather raise your standard of giving.
