for many of you who have fasted during Ramadan, what’s it like now, post Ramadan, with regards to worship? Do you still maintain your few forms of worship (like reading Quran or praying on time); if so, what are they?
sogandzakerhaghighi asked: Salam alaykom wa rahmatullah wa barakatu :) I don't underestimate the powers of prayers and right now, I'd just like to ask you guys to make a dua for me and my family. It's been a tough couple of weeks with a family member and I just want it to get better. My strength is weakening and I need your help. Please and thank you <3 May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon you all.
Verily, with every hardship there is ease.– [Surah Inshirah 94: 5-6] (via thereisasongforyou)
yourunlikelyhero: Please make dua that I find a job, soon. Jazak’Allah khairun.
thalamtnafsee: nourofbanihashem: Using a Youtube looper like http://www.infinitelooper.com/ is useful for trying to memorize Qur’an (or du’as, or any audio) since the repetition will ensure it sticks in your brain. this is the most useful tool I have discovered on the internet, by far! Everyone needs to take advantage of this, especially if you’re having trouble with memorization.
noraelena asked: salamualayk ! do you have a facebook page?
thatslegit: omg my boss bought me halal meat for the company bbq today AND HES EVEN COOKING IT BEFORE THE REST OF THE ~DIRTY MEAT~ HOW NICE IS THAT?!?!!!!
niqabisinparis-deactivated20130 asked: Salam aalaykum. I find myself being lazier and lazier after Ramadan. I no longer get excited to listen to lectures on Youtube, listening to the Quran is out of mind, and I'm just trying to get through the day without collapsing from school and the work. How do I restrengthen my iman? Jazakum Allah kher :)
letter-be asked: Hi, I'm a brazilian reader and I must say I'm struggling to the path of Islam, even though I'm not into it, yet. I just learn about Islam what I can read in blogs and so, 'cause I can't find anyone here who can nicely explain to me about. I can't even find a copy of the Qur'an and believe me, I've tried. I wanted to know if you can give me an advice of how...
itskinddacool asked: Why do they say that prayer is a call for success?
polite-psychopath asked: Hey there! I go to BYU, and I went to the university's art museum today. There is an exhibit called Beauty and Belief and it's all about Islamic art. I've been following your blog for a while, and tonight I got to see many artifacts and art pieces showcasing your beliefs. I just wanted you to know how beautiful I think your religion is, and even though, as a Mormon, I don't...
am17am asked: Salam alaikum. How exactly do you love for the sake of Allah? Does this mean that there's no personal desire at all in this love? Thanks!
countingrakats: I may be taking a little break. I want to be forgiven by Allah. I feel my sins are piled up high. I don’t want to live this way. Who wants to live this way?? I’ve been hurting no one but myself, I’ve only harmed myself. Please make dua that Allah may forgive me and guide me.
hayaisbeauty asked: Asalamu Alaykum! i was wondering if you request any nasheeds or any muslims songs. <3
Just a thought
i-living-islam: Some of us find it difficult to encourage and compliment others due to our own issues; we just sit and watch, and when we are almost forced to acknowledge someone or their work, we just do it grudgingly; and this attitude is not at all the sign of a good social ethics. It is the Sunna of the Prophet to appreciate and encourage others when they do good deeds. Many of our Muslim...
willis10 asked: assalamualaikum :D I was wondering, is it a sin for muslims to enter a church? not to worship, or to get blessings, but to just enter and look around? -jazakallah
sogandzakerhaghighi asked: Salam alaykom, I'm not a revert but I'm willing to be an ear for the sister and a heart for her to open up to. I don't think she has the option to send her a message or to ask her a question though, so I'm not sure what I should do. Any ideas? Thanks! By the way this is in response to the recent update of the "call-me-aisha" concern about wanting to revert. JazakAllah...

darkandclassy asked: Salam! I have a question that's been nagging me for awhile now. First of all, I know I should first worry about entering Jannah, and that there wont be any negative feelings. But it continues to bother so it's not wrong to know more, right? It's about the Hoor al-Ayn in Jannah. So many people have been saying the same thing repeatedly, including scholars. People have asked if a...
How to revert?
call-me-aisha: I have been studying and thinking about reverting for a long time. I am now feeling an urgency, but idk what to do next. Looking for someone to talk to. can any reverts help?
Quick duaa for my sister please?
She just left for the airport. Her summer break is over and I’m really gonna miss her. If you could just take a minute and make duaa that she has a safe flight, it would be much appreciated :)
I will give you one good reason why everything is going to be alright: Allah.– Imām Muḥammad ‘Abd al-Laṭīf Finch (via ammarmali)
thalamtnafsee: ramblingsoftwoninjas: I hear a lot of people saying they don’t want to commit to something until their imaan is at a certain level. Now, there’s nothing wrong with that but sometimes it just isn’t the right approach. Imaan is something that’s constantly rising and falling; it isn’t constant. It’s something that you won’t ever really be satisfied with because there’s always...
forthesakeofallah: I really hope that people are still reading the Quraan, even though Ramadan is over. If you can, read one juzu [20 pages] a day.. That way, you could finish the Quraan once every month. 20 pages divided by the 5 prayers is 4 pages after every salaah! Not bad at all. The more you read the Quraan, the better your reading will become and the faster you’ll be able to read.
salamseeker: There are two ways that you can go about Fajr: You can sacrifice your sleep, and stay awake through the night while you wait up for it. Or you can leave your activities early, and sleep on time, so that you can wake up in time for it. Regardless, make it a duty for yourself, in shaa Allah. It’s two rakkah for the Pleasure of Allah. You do so little, but gain so much.
minadi: Do any of you know of a place one of my friends can stay in New York?? She’s Afghan, Muslim, EXTREMELY sweet and respectful. She just started grad school in Columbia and still hasn’t found a place to live.
elfajr: Assalamu ‘Alaikum, I know that the one reading this doesn’t know me, my life or my situation but I am reaching out to you. I’m a working class girl, a convert to Islam of 5 years and about to step into a completely different world. I’m moving abroad and I can genuinely say that this is one of the most stressful points in my life. Please include me in your duas. It doesn’t take too...
