The Compassionate Most Merciful.

Reported by Abu Hurairah (RA): The Messenger of Allah said: Allah says: “I am just as My slave thinks of Me, and I am with him if he remembers Me. If he remembers Me in himself, I too, remember him in Myself; and if he remembers me in a group of people, I remember him in a group that is better than that. And if he comes one span nearer to Me, I go one cubit nearer to him; and if he comes one cubit nearer to Me, I go a distance of two outstretched arms nearer to him. And if he comes to Me walking, I go to him running.”

(Bukhari and Muslim)

Pray for the people of Palestine, and for all those who are being unjustly prosecuted, tortured, and killed around the world. We are in a time where there seems to be a goal to desensitize the world of death…where innocence is no longer even considered, but is being labeled irrelevant by the same people who are holding the guns or throwing the bombs, or even more so, those who are “secretly” funding those barbarians who have lost all understanding of justice and humanity, and have gone on killing sprees, targeting women and children. We see so many pictures and videos of bombs falling, of children being physical torn apart, and people losing entire families in a matter of seconds. We have to do our best to support the people experiencing injustice in any and every form, we have to help them stay strong, we have to help in every single way we can, but most importantly, and I cannot express this enough, we have to remember that the Prophet (SAW) said that the greatest weapon of a believer is Du’a (supplication). So, brothers and sisters, pray, make Du’a, stay up at night begging Allah with tears flooding your eyes, for justice, for peace, for patience, for strength, and for His Mercy, for the oppressed around the world. Please, let’s use this opportunity of Ramadan, in the last few days we have left, to come together and sincerely, from the deepest points of our hearts to dedicate most of our time towards making Du’a, and KNOW for a FACT that Allah will answer our Du’a. Jazakum Allahu Khairun. And Allah knows best.

Progression Through Addiction - Nadir Keval
This Ramadan, I’ve been trying to overcome an addiction I’ve struggled with for most of my life. It’s not an addiction like smoking or drinking, or anything like that, alhamdulillah, but it’s a major struggle I haven’t been able to overcome, and one that has negatively influenced a great deal of my life. I’ve begun to understand that all of us have our vices, our addictions, our obsessions, and those things can be bad for us if we fall too deep into them. For example, consider that even drinking too much water can lead to us hurting ourselves, even though water is a human necessity. I learned that everything comes with a need for balance, and a need for how to approach something wisely. To put that into context of the water example, technically, you could get water from drinking soda/pop, but that is far more harmful to your body than drinking pure water would be.
Addiction is something I’ve learned may have its benefits. How many successful and influential people have you met or heard of who said that despite knowing what they needed to do, they weren’t able to do it until they hit rock bottom. Perhaps, that’s what addiction, along with other struggles like it, lead to. Perhaps, that is why these things exist. I’m not necessarily suggesting one indulges in any addiction or struggle, but instead, to take your time in working through things and growing at a pace that doesn’t hurt you.

Dua for the Twentieth Day of Ramadhan

اَللّـهُمَّ افْتَحْ لي فيهِ اَبْوابَ الْجِنانِ
وَاَغْلِقْ عَنّي فيهِ اَبْوابَ النّيرانِ
وَوَفِّقْني فيهِ لِتِلاوَةِ الْقُرْآنِ
يا مُنْزِلَ السَّكينَةِ فى قُلُوبِ الْمُؤْمِنينَ

O Allah, on this day, open for me the doors of the heavens, and lock the doors of Hell from me, help me to recite the Qur’an, O the One who sends down tranquility into the hearts of believers

Narrated by Abu Huraira:

Prophet Muhammad PBUH kissed Al-Hasan bin Ali while Al-Aqra’ bin Habis At-Tamim was sitting beside him. Al-Aqra said, “I have ten children and I have never kissed anyone of them,” Prophet Muhammad PBUH cast a look at him and said, “Whoever is not merciful to others will not be treated mercifully.” (Bukhari - book 8, volume 73, hadith 26)

standwithpalestine:

Keep Palestinians living in Gaza in your prayers. They are looking under rubble for their loved ones or burying them all while watching the skies for their own safety.

Remember those in West Bank and present-day Israel, some of whom are living in fear of being kidnapped and burned alive, like 17-year-old Mohamed Abu Khdeir was, or attacked simply for being Palestinian. 

The above photos were taken today after family homes were pounded as Israel continued its aerial bombardment of Gaza, killing at least 15 Palestinians - including children - and wounding 100.

Never stop searching for the truth and never stop spreading it once you find it. Hell will freeze over before Western media does so it’s down to us.
