Not everything in life is black and white. In fact, most things are some shade of grey. Many of us look at the things we aspire towards, or look at the aspirations of others, and think that it must be one way or another. For example, if a person aspires to become wealthy, we think that they’re materialistic, that all they think about is money, and thus, we judge them in a negative way. If a person aspires to help people, we think that they’re a saint-like person, and expect them to be perfect in every way. In both circumstances, we don’t know what that person’s true thoughts and intentions are. We don’t know their reason for wanting what they want. How do you know that person that wants wealth isn’t aspiring towards that in order to be able to spend money on helping those less fortunate? How do you know the person that appears to aspire towards helping people isn’t doing so just so others will say, “Wow! Look how caring and generous he is!” Pray for everyone to find the path that’s best suited for their happiness and success in this life and the Next. Think the best of others and don’t expect them to hurt you, even if all you’ve felt is hurt from others in your past. Always strive towards having a positive mind in every way, because ultimately, good will return to you, if not in this life, then certainly in the Next.
Hi! This might seem kind of odd but I’ve been bullied for months now and this is being so hard to cope with. I feel just unsafe, overwhelmed and hopeless because of this. Brothers and sisters make dua’s for me please and thanks :) -http://svrvhlynda.tumblr.com/
Salam Alaikum, my name is Ali.
I’m one of the members of “WakeUpTheUmmah” we’re responsible for making videos on Islam and life. We have daily reminders and we try to create videos as much as possible for the sake of Allah.
This is our newest video I think many will enjoy it.
look through at the many other video’s we have on our channel In’shaa’Allah.
Just met the most amazing man at ICC Tempe Masjid in Phoenix. His name is John, he’s an 81 year old retiree from Ohio who worked in the mining industry. He converted when he was 68. I asked him what his catalyst was, his eyes lit up and he said, “I read the Quran and the life of the Prophet Muhammad. It’s simple! Do good! Behave! When you make a mistake say sorry!”
My heart feels refreshed after spending 30 minutes with John. I think Allah sent me to Phoenix just to meet him. This guy should be on the pulpit, not me.
my hispanic friend from my education courses wants to take a trip to the mosque. shes interested “in becoming” (for a lack of a better term) muslim.
lets all pray for her inshallah
بصوت الشيخ القارئ شيخ أبو بكر الشاطري
Surat Kahf by Sheikh Abu Bakr Al-Shatiri
“Whoever recites Surat al-Kahf on Friday, light shall shine forth for him between the two Fridays.” [Ibn Hajar, Talkhis al-Habir]
One of the cruellest things you can do to another person is pretend you care about them more than you really do.
I’m giving these books away for free. If you’re interested in any of them lemme know.
my aunt’s in labor, please keep her in your duaas. giving birth is no easy feat, may allah reward our mothers.
Please make dua for a lady in our Muslim community. She has suffered the loss of a child and became really ill after. She’s been in a coma and her teenage daughter has been taking care of her and her little brothers. Their father is not in the picture and her oldest son has been facing his own troubles. Please pray that Allah swt protects her kids from harm and gives them strength to survive the loss of their mother.
The dr found four ‘abnormal’ looking moles on me so when im in aus I need to go to a dermatologist to make sure they arnt cancerous. …my mom has has several skin cancers removed so please pray mine are ok!
I’m going through something in my life right now that has me feeling like I am a helpless mouse trapped in a corner…with absolutely no way of controlling the situation. If you can remember me in your prayers, I would greatly appreciate it. Knowing that Allah sees everything is the only thing giving me solace at the moment.
